Some things just go better together...
Wine and cheese.
Strawberries and chocolate
Pork chops and applesauce...
Okay, I've never been big on pork chops. But worse ... I hate when I finish a story and don't know what I should read next.
So, if you're like me, you'll love these pairings. Each book is a stand-alone story in the collection, but then the second book takes you a little deeper into the characters' lives, or other characters from the previous story.
Also, I felt offering these pairings would be a bonus for avid-readers, a BOGO (Buy one get one 1/2 price), since the sets are priced less than buying the books individually.
And a bonus freebie... the American Haunts Collection is FREE!
Mystery - Suspense - Paranormal - Romance
When a reoccurring dream implies that Detective Canale’s grandparents' deaths might actually have been homicides, he realizes he’s either connecting to the other side or going crazy. And he’s not sure which thought scares him more.
Detective Mark Waters doesn't believe in ghosts. But when an attempted homicide mimics a murder that took place eighty years ago, and it appears someone is working from beyond the grave to right a wrong, he’s starting to wonder if life and death can cross tracks…
If you've already read the individual books, please consider downloading the FREE set and posting a review so other readers will know if the books are right for them!
I would greatly appreciate it!
More Book Pairings to choose from...
For four thousand years, creatus elders have insisted that the creatus population concealed themselves from human beings because humans had hunted the creatus almost to extinction…
But one woman’s research reveals that when creatus first arrived on this planet, humans didn’t fear the alien beings that looked so much like the human race. That is, until the creatus started to breed with humans, creating a ferocious killer feared by humans and creatus alike. A creature so fierce that its legacy of death and destruction has fed nightmares for millennia.
And now, a new breed of creatus has been born—or rather, reborn.
As with the previous books, I'm offering the pre-order of Creatus Talis for only $0.99.
This way previous readers of the Creatus series will get the best price!

To me...every day is International Women's Day.
I'm not sure what the world is celebrating today, but I want you to know that every day is YOUR day, in my opinion, the reason I write stories to let women know they are NOT alone.
One of my favorite stories that shows a woman's strengths and triumphs is Some Lucky Woman, a contemporary women's fiction with a hint of humor and romance, featuring a thirty-something divorcee who's trying to figure out where she fits in the world and if she can ever love and trust a man again..
If you'd like to read part one, download the novella "Unlucky In Love" simply by clicking one of the formats below. The eBook is not available -- LEGALLY -- anywhere but on one of my websites. This is my gift to you.

Excerpt from She Belongs to Me:
At that precise moment, the man sitting in her booth looked up from his menu, acknowledging her presence.
Wow! Now she understood Amy’s grin and offer to assist. The man at her table was a real looker. Not in a generic Hollywood way. He was a genuine all-American, but striking male. The man’s face, chiseled and sculpted to perfection, stared back: square chin, high cheekbones, and angular nose, all framed by a neatly trimmed beard trailing up his jaw that only added to his rugged look. His hair was a deep brown, almost black, and cropped short, military-style. His build resembled an officer of some sort. His shoulders were broad and held back in perfect posture, and based on their width, she now understood the need for a larger booth.
His eyes were the best, though. He had a lightly tanned complexion with dark brows, and beneath thick eyelashes were a set of arresting steel-blue eyes. They were beautiful. The shock of electricity that shot through her, though, was incapacitating. She couldn’t think; wow wasn’t quite enough to describe what she felt. Her feet felt as though they were rooted to the wood floor below her, and she couldn’t remember the last time she’d just gawked at a complete stranger.

Excerpt from Land of the Noonday Sun:
If she compiled a list, Chad would fill it…right up until the chosen career line, which would probably be foremost. He was exactly the correct height, about six-foot tall, she guessed. He had dark hair with a small amount of curl that went whichever way it pleased but worked for him. His skin was dark from all the hours in the sun, she assumed, which caused his brilliant blue eyes to stand out. And his build…she sighed...his arms and shoulders were incredible. He looked as though he’d just stepped out of a Hollister advertisement.
She shook her head to escape the ridiculous thoughts racing through her head. Remember the plan, Cassandra. This is merely a six-month detour, and then she was back on the plan. It wasn’t like her to get her head turned so easily; she was forever sensible.

Excerpt from Entangled Dreams:
Nicky held onto the stranger’s waist as he carefully drove out of the parking lot, nothing like Jonathan would have.
He was handsome. He had one of those faces that was just pleasant to look at, one that you couldn’t help but trust. His face was round and kind looking with a tiny cleft in his chin. He didn’t smile much, but the one time he almost did, when she’d asked for a ride, she could see the semblance of a dimple on his cheek. His hair was sandy brown and his eyes a deep hazel. He was taller than she was, too, and that was saying a lot. A little overdressed, though. Why would anyone go out on a Saturday night in dress pants and a button-down collared shirt and tie? And on a motorcycle, nonetheless.

Excerpt from When Noonday Ends:
Shelby examined Tom as he sat across from her. Man, he was good looking. She probably shouldn’t be thinking about things like that, but she couldn’t help it. He had the prettiest hazel eyes that stood out under long sun-bleached eyelashes. His hair was light brown, but it too had a natural hint of gold in it.
He dug inside his briefcase. “So,” he began, as he removed a manila folder with her name written neatly across the tab, “they dropped the charges?” It was a question, not a statement. He folded his hands on the table and looked up at her for an explanation, it seemed.
“I’m as shocked as you appear to be,” she admitted.
One side of his mouth inched up as he leaned back and crossed his arms across his chest, revealing how well built his upper body was. “Well, at the moment, I’m still bound under attorney-client confidentiality. Care to elaborate? Since you told me that you struck your husband—excuse me, ex-husband—but it’d been done in self-defense. Are you in danger?”
