The First Alpha (Wolves of the Five Tribes #1)

Adam has waited an eternity for his mate. After three thousand years of searching he’s almost given up hope that he’ll ever find her… almost convinced himself that God has forsaken him to a life of solitude.

Cassie is heartbroken. At just 23 the buxom, beautiful werewolf has found herself caught up in her mother’s Machiavellian power struggles, forced into an arranged marriage with Lucius, the cruel, violent alpha of the Ironclaw tribe. When the Long Night arrives Cassie will become his property, to do with as he pleases.

Imprisoned in Lucius’ summer home with Megan, a gutter-minded 400 year old teenager, and Rutherford, a senile housekeeper who can’t remember where he left his trousers, Cassie has almost resigned herself to her fate. She’d never dare go against her mother, and to reject Lucius would lead the weak Darkfangs into war with the mighty Ironclaws. Cassie knows she has no choice but to sacrifice her happiness for her tribe…

… And then she picks up a scent on the breeze, and everything changes.

The First Alpha is a tale of love against all odds; of betrayal, scheming and intrigue, and of two lost souls linked together across time.

Father Found (The Daddy School)

Jamie McCoy is the ultimate guy: thirty years old, carefree and professionally successful as the writer of a nationally syndicated humor column called “Guy Stuff.” Nine and a half months ago, he spent a week basking on the beach in Eluthera and indulging in a fling with a woman at the resort. Never did he expect to find the unplanned result of that fling—a healthy, wailing baby named Samantha—strapped into a car seat on his back porch, along with a suitcase full of diapers and infant apparel and a note informing Jamie that he’s her father.

Maybe he is and maybe he isn’t. But first things first. He’s never fed a baby or changed a diaper in his life. He doesn’t own a crib or a stroller. In a panic, he phones the nearest hospital, where neonatal nurse Allison Winslow takes his call and tells him about a class she teaches called the Daddy School.

Classes on how to be a dad are exactly what Jamie needs. But when he attends his first class and sees the tall, earnest, amazingly beautiful and even more amazingly competent Allison, he realizes that he might just need more from her than her lectures on how to hold a baby.

Jamie’s efforts to be a father to this precious baby touch Allison. His sense of humor amuses her. His striking good looks turn her on. But how can she trust the sort of guy who’d sleep with a stranger on vacation, without giving a thought to the consequences? How can she give her heart to such a reckless man?

Corinna’s bakery, Earthly Delights, is on the ground floor of a particularly eclectic apartment building, whose occupants promise to make life interesting. A mysterious moralist has taken offense at the building’s professional dominatrix; poisoned pen letters find their way to all residents; suddenly more heroin addicts seem to overdosing than usual; and then there are the vampires. Someone’s got to get to the bottom of it all, and it might as well be Corinna.

Earthly Delights is the first in a delicious new series by the award-winning author of the Phryne Fisher mysteries. A cozy, quirky, unconventional antipodean mystery.
