Tuesday's Child (Psychic Visions 1)

What she doesn’t want…is exactly what he needs.

Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can’t control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she’s tapped into a killer—or rather, his victims. Each woman’s murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

Detective Brandt Sutherland only trusts hard evidence, yet Sam’s visions offer clues he needs to catch a killer. The more he learns about her incredible abilities, however, the clearer it becomes that Sam’s visions have put her in the killer’s line of fire. Now Brandt must save her from something he cannot see or understand…and risk losing his heart in the process.

As danger and desire collide, passion raises the stakes in a game Sam and Brandt don’t dare lose.

To Have (The Dumont Diaries (#1)

I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain.

Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.

Welcome to my life, a drained bank account and six nights a week spinning around a greasy strip club pole. When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.

Doing Bizness: A Nuclear Thriller (Cristina Smythe Suspense 1)

Warhead engineer Anton Zvezda goes AWOL in disgust when his strategic nuclear bomber base mutinies against Moscow and declares loyalty to independent Ukraine.

Getting Kiev a modern tracking system for what is suddenly the world’s third largest nuclear arsenal will help American businessmen Neil Neilson and Dan Kruger keep their jobs.

Meanwhile, in Kiev, Iraqi spy Tariq abu Bakr is shopping for a Bomb – on pain of death. That is, until the brilliant and beautiful Sveta learns the secret that can thwart his plans and achieve her own ambitions.

The USSR’s demise unleashed a flood of radioactive materiel still at risk for smuggling and diversion. Doing Bizness is about how it began. International intrigue, high-octane sex and a pair of monks on a mission, mix into a radioactive time bomb propelled to a startling, and deadly, conclusion.

Based on true events – both surreal and terrifying — it really could have happened.

Cassie Bellamy thought she’d left Bowie, Texas and Luke Matthews behind for good. She’d been gone for ten years and in that time had built a successful real estate business, had a new fiancé, and had all but forgotten about the Texas bad boy who’d sent her running to Phoenix in the first place.

She wouldn’t be going back now, but her daddy needed her at the Double B.

Driving her old pickup truck “Bessie” back to Bowie had seemed like a good idea when she’d left Phoenix, but it didn’t seem so good when she was broken down on the side of the road in ninety plus Texas weather in between Bowie and her daddy’s farm. And it seemed an even worse idea when her knight in brown khaki turned out to be none other than the bad boy himself, a Sheriff now, and still as hot as the Texas sun.

Cassie does her best to ignore Luke and remember her fiancé back in Phoenix, but Luke seems determined to make her remember his kisses and their nights of stargazing by the lake instead. And she definitely still has stars in her eyes when she looks at the delectable Sheriff.

She has her job, school and The Guys Are Props Club to keep her mind and hormones in check.
