The Touch of Sage by Marcia Lynn McClure

Following the death of her parents, Sage Willows had lovingly nurtured her younger sisters through childhood. She loved her sisters. She’d seen each one married, and was glad to see them settled and happy. Furthermore, she held no resentment at never having found a good man of her own to settle down with. Yet, regret is different than resentment—and far more haunting.
Still, Sage found as much joy as was allowed a lonely young woman—in being proprietress of Willows’ Boardinghouse, and in the companionship of the four beloved widow-women boarding there. Until, that is, the devilishly handsome Rebel Lee Mitchell appeared. It seemed Reb Mitchel instantly and forever vanquished Sage’s feigned contentment.
Dark, mysterious and secretly wounded, Reb Mitchell utterly captured Sage’s lonely heart. Nevertheless, to Sage Williows, the powerfully attractive cowboy—admired and coveted by every female in his path—seemed entirely unobtainable. How could a weathered, boardinghouse-proprietress resigned to spinsterhood, ever hope to hold the attention of such a man? And knowing she couldn’t—would Sage Willows simply sink deeper into the bleak loneliness she’d secreted for so long?

Love’s Prey by Meg Xuemei X

Xirena’s life has never been an easy one. Deemed a thief, a brute, and a slut by one’s own family and schoolmates might take its toll on your average fifteen-year-old, but Xirena makes no apologies. Then she meets seventeen-year-old Kai, smoking hot and hell-bent on seducing her. But Xirena isn’t having it. Kai must prove to Xirena that his attraction is something more. When he does, Xirena opens to him. Softens around the edges.

Problem is, Kai’s ex-girlfriends are none too happy about this. They won’t allow anyone, especially an outcast, to have the boy they want and will stop at nothing to ruin Xirena. But Xirena stands her ground even if it means wrecking her one and only chance of escaping these backwoods forever.

Death And Disappearances: A Tale Of Horror And The Occult by Richard Smiraldi

Death and Disappearances is a psychological thriller that reads like a 1950’s film noir. The story begins with Young, rich and promising novelist, Montgomery Clark, “Mont” and the disappearance of his wife. He and his wife, Petula Beaujolais Clark had been married about two years when life as they knew it began to unravel into the Paranormal. Petula grew restless, worried about her identical twin sister – who was institutionalized in Paris. After a spat with Mont at a club function on Gramercy Park, Petula leaves their apartment at 2am in nothing but her sable coat and a pair of fuzzy pink slippers –vanished. Mont elicits the help of his friends, Bea, and Peter. Bea discovers a lump on her throat and is advised by her psychic to leave the country. Mont’s best friend and former roommate Peter of London, England tries to help. But his car takes a dive off the cliffs of Bear Mountain and crashes into the Hudson River. Was it an act of voodoo as the psychic pronounces? With nowhere else to turn, Mont files a missing person’s report with Detective, Draza Vicaru (which means “Werewolf” in Slovakian), Mont wakes to find a robbery has taken place. A painting Petula created is missing and a note is left behind which reads, “You killed my sister, now I’ll murder you.” The note, to Mont’s horror, is written in blood in his own handwriting. Also disturbing, there is a dead sparrow in his top bureau drawer – witchcraft? Together, with the help of the psychic, a little time travel, and the New York City Police, Mont uncovers the dark secret about the disappearance of Petula Beaujolais-Clark. Discover Petula’s twin sister, the realm of the vampire, and the mysterious deaths and disappearances in New York City’s tony Art World. This novel is an urban, paranormal mystery. It’s pages are rife with psychic, voodoo, vampires and vengeful characters that loom in the nightmarish village alleys of Manhattan.
