BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON: RISE OF THE ARKANSAS WEREWOLVES by Jodi Vaughn

Hell on Wheels…
Werewolf Guardian, Damon Trahan lives by a Code: Protect the Pack with his life. Damon has experienced death and betrayal, now all he wants is the freedom of his Harley and the loyalty of the men he rides with, the only family he has left. Those are the things he knows and believes in. Love and the hurt that comes with it has no place in his world…Until he receives new orders: Rescue female werewolf, Ava Renfroe from a Pack of rogue wolves.
Hell on Heels…
Bartender Ava Renfroe is tired of Alpha males running her life. Being raised as the daughter of a Military General made her want independence more than air—and she has it! Until she’s kidnapped. Damon Trahan, her alpha male rescuer and bossy pain-in-the-ass, is exactly the kind of man she doesn’t want, but try telling that to her libido. His brooding good looks are panty-dropping hot. Too bad he’s bat-shit crazy and thinks he’s a werewolf. Worse, he claims she’s a werewolf too. But when Damon shifts in front of her, she begins to doubt everything she’s known to be true.
Hell to pay…
On the run from the rogues, Ava and Damon can’t ignore the red hot passion between them. But Damon knows it can’t last. Will he sacrifice everything he’s ever known to have the one thing he’s never meant to have? Or will the war between the Packs destroy them before love is given a chance?

For artist Dan Bellamy and his new bride Elaine, a trip on the world’s biggest, newest cruise ship represents more than just the honeymoon of a lifetime: it is also a celebration of the progress Dan has made toward beating the agoraphobia that has plagued him since he suffered a horrific knife attack two years earlier.

The ship is a perfect floating paradise, but when Dan spots what he thinks is a body being thrown overboard, he begins to suspect that not everybody aboard the Oceanus is there for a vacation.

Soon, Dan will discover that there are some things worse than murder, and the body he saw is just the beginning. Because something is coming for the passengers on the Oceanus.

Something that isn’t supposed to exist…

Home Grown: Book One in the Based on True Stories Collection by Ninie Hammon

DON’T MESS WITH A WOMAN WHO BUYS INK BY THE BARREL     
FACT…
In 1989, federal authorities busted what they called the Cornbread Mafia, the largest domestic marijuana growing operation in American history. They confiscated 182 tons of pot with a street value– in 1989!–of $400 million. Federal marshals arrested 56 men in 5 states…but they all came from one small town in Kentucky.

FICTION…
Somebody murdered Jim Bingham, shot him dead in front of his own newspaper office in the small town of Brewster, Kentucky, and now his heartbroken daughter must abandon the world of academic journalism for the real world of running the newspaper he left behind.
 
But Sarabeth Bingham soon discovers that marijuana-growing has corrupted the idyllic small town where she grew up. 

The sheriff can’t get a marijuana conviction because the county’s jury pool is tainted. 

Her cousin grows weed and has lost his wife and daughter to the world of drugs. 

Sarabeth finds herself falling for a handsome bourbon distillery owner she’s convinced is financing his business with dope money.

And a ruthless farmer named Bubba Jamison will do anything–absolutely anything–to protect his empire.

After 3 children find dope money in an abandoned building and the dopers kidnap them to get it back, Sarabeth heeds the words on the plaque that has hung above her father’s desk for as long as she can remember: “Don’t mess with a man who buys ink by the barrel!”

In a blazing front-page editorial in the next issue of the Tribune, Sarabeth declares war on the marijuana-growing industry! Now, the growers have to shut her up and she soon learns a terrifying lesson: dopers fight dirty.
         

* * * 
          Home Grown isn’t the true story of the rise and fall of the Cornbread Mafia, not from a historical perspective; thrillers like this are too intricately woven to stick to the facts. But the novel is as real as what actually did happen, a mystery thrillers and suspense story with a female protagonist who grabs the reader and drags him into the action to live it with her. Sarabeth Bingham isn’t the stereotypical heroine of sappy contemporary women’s fiction. She is flawed, human and real. She has multiple sclerosis and a past filled with the kind of pain that’s the mortar for building walls. Home Grown gives crime fiction a heart–and the face of a red-haired woman who didn’t set out to be a hero. 

GOODREADS AND AMAZON.COM
READERS’ PRAISE
Her books will entertain you and keep you flipping pages. She pulls no punches and no characters are safe. But she will also move you emotionally. This is the 4th Hammon novel I’ve read and I can’t wait for her 5th. Bestselling author Eric Wilson, Top 100 Amazon Reviewer
Ninie has a way of sharing real happenings of that time period through fiction and protecting the real people involved. I know because I live in the small town she wrote about. ohsolma
Mystery, thrillers and suspense stories and historical thrillers are the genres I enjoy, and Home Grown has a reality and believability that’s rare in crime fiction. The novel may be billed as women’s fiction, but I’m a man and it’s one of the best dramas I’ve ever read. T. Fredrick
The fact that this book is fiction, but based on events that actually took place makes it all the more gripping. This is the first book of Hammon’s I have read. I shall definitely be reading her others. Shirley Ford
Home Grown is based on a true story from 30 years ago but the greed and evil felt very contemporary. Women will identify with the female protagonist because she’s no superwoman. Her vulnerability moves the book beyond typical crime fiction. Sally Hayes
