Enjoy the dark paranormal world of NIGHT'S CAPTIVE in the first book of Cheyenne's new "Dark Enforcer" paranormal romance series.

All Loni Stanfield was looking for was a good book to read. What she got was enough terror and danger to last a lifetime.

Alec Page is a Dark Enforcer, one of the elite paranorms who patrol by night. Alec is a mimic with the rare ability to take on the powers of the last being he touches. He must use his ability to defeat the evil haunting the streets of Phoenix.

Paranorms are turning up dead with no clues as to who or what is the cause. Drugs are also being distributed that give humans paranorm abilities, wreaking havoc in both paranorm and human realities. Dawson, a powerful sorcerer, may be behind everything, and Alec is out to stop the devastation before it goes too far.

Loni finds herself in a paranorm reality that she read about in a novel and then she meets Alec, the hero of that very book. Soon she finds herself falling for him at the same time she's discovering magical powers of her own.

Alec is drawn to Loni, no matter that she's human...and taboo.

When Loni is kidnapped and in the sorcerer's grasp, Alec must save her as well as save a city on the verge of destruction.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling Author Cheyenne McCray's books have received multiple awards and nominations. Chey has three sons, two dogs, and is an Arizona native who loves the desert, the sunshine, and the beautiful sunsets. Visit Cheyenne at CheyenneMcCray.com

Once I read about an ancient society where every woman who was going to be married had to sit by the side of the road the night before her marriage and give herself to the first man who came along. Strange rite, benefiting a temple. But that's how THE STAR NECKLACE was born. It has been just released by Red Sage.

The warrior Ronan travels to the far reaches of the galaxy to search for his missing brother. He cannot stay on a planet where all outsiders are killed. But when he crosses paths with the healer, Lata, who is sacrificing her virginity in a sacred rite to help her countrywomen, he cannot leave her to her unkind fate. With passion and love simmering between them, Lata is faced with an agonizing choice when Ronan is mortally wounded by her countrymen. Must she fulfill the promise made when she was chosen to wear the Star Necklace – a promise to help her countrywomen? Or can she find a way to take Ronan off-planet to save his life?

As a fan of vampire stories, I was intrigued by the vampire-servant dynamic. In the Vampire Queen series, I’ve explored the intimate relationship between vampire and servant, that give and take of power and control, love and surrender, particularly between female vampires and male servants. However, Beloved Vampire, my August 4 release, features Lord Mason, a vampire who has grieved for three centuries – until a dying girl invades his lost love’s tomb.

Jessica is a fugitive from his world, the escaped servant of a brutal vampire master. Drawn by the romantic legend of the tomb, not realizing it intertwines with the vampire world she is seeking to avoid, Jessica’s only desire is to die there, at the feet of the woman who’d had an unyielding faith in love.

Instead, she finds her desire to live forcibly re-awakened by the vampire who refuses to let her give up. She clings to her hatred, but the more Mason struggles with her, the more determined he is to help her believe in love again. The only catch is he might have to do the same. But can he offer up his heart to another extraordinary woman if he already gave it away centuries ago?

Summary of BELOVED VAMPIRE:
Lord Mason has lived in the Sahara desert for 300 years, grieving for a lost love and guarding her tomb. When the tomb is breached, his vampire bloodlust is stirred to raging by the thought of someone disturbing her sanctuary. What he finds is Jessica, a fugitive from his own world. Forced into service to a cruel vampire master, Jessica was able to kill him when he tried to make her his full servant. Because the third marking was not complete, it left her alive…barely.

Drawn by the historic legend of the tomb, not knowing how it intertwines with the vampire world she is seeking to avoid, Jessica’s only desire is to die there, with her hand on the sarcophagus of the woman who had an unyielding faith in love. Instead, her desire to live is forcibly re-awakened by the vampire who refuses to let her give up. She clings to her hatred, but Mason is determined to help her believe in love again. The only catch is he might have to do the same. But can he offer up his heart to another extraordinary woman if he already gave it away centuries ago?

OMG! This has to be the best vampire novel I've read in a very long time! Joey Hill has outdone herself in descriptions and plot. – Paranormal Romance Reviews

New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers' name means a gripping story you won't be able to put down. Now, with The Mist, she brings readers into a world where few can be trusted and appearances often deceive...

When Lizzie Rush uncovers evidence that thrill-seeking billionaire Norman Estabrook may be at the center of an international criminal network, she finds herself playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Raised in the elite world of her hotelier family, educated in reality by her spy father, Lizzie is the perfect choice to slowly amass information that will take down Estabrook. But no good deed goes unpunished.

Despite Norman’s arrest, Lizzie knows she’s not safe. Estabrook will stop at nothing to exact revenge against the people who took him down—unless she stops him first. When she learns of a bomb that’s about to go off in Boston, her instincts are proven right. But her warning doesn’t come quickly enough. One detective is seriously injured in the blast and another, the FBI director’s daughter, disappears. Then intelligence officer Will Davenport arrives with a single, simple message: Norman Estabrook is gone.

Lizzie doesn’t know how Will found her or whose side he's on, but she does know he can help her prevent the killers from striking again. Now Lizzie—a woman who’s spent the last year shrouded in a fog of deception—has no choice but to trust Will, a man who lives by a code of personal honor and answers to no one. At least until the mist clears and the frightening truth is revealed.

Mark Twain once said, "It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense." So true! Life doesn’t always make sense, and real people often do quirky things we don't expect.

A long time ago, before I started writing for publication, I had a conversation with my cousin-once-removed about his grandmother--my aunt--who had died some years before when I was in college. I remember her fondly as a sweet old lady with a thick Italian accent -- the grandmother I never had, since my own grandmothers died before I was born. My aunt was well loved by everyone, went to church every Sunday, and to my knowledge never hurt so much as a fly in her entire life.

So I was a bit shocked (to say the least) when my cousin confided that my aunt (God bless her soul) had had a little problem with "picking things up." As in picking things up in the local five-and-dime...without paying. She was a closet shoplifter! No matter how often her family tried to talk her out this foible, she just couldn’t seem to stop. Luckily, my aunt didn't drive, and her life of secret crime was limited to one store close to her house. My cousin worked out a deal with the shop owner, stopping in every month to pay off whatever his grandmother had lifted the month before.

Fast forward about ten years. I'm writing a book, a humorous romance -- A Little Light Magic!-- in which the hero, Nick Santangelo, has trouble dealing with the various crazy women in his big Italian family. I haven't thought about my aunt's shoplifting habit for years, but for some reason I found myself relating her story to a neighbor. And it hits me -- what a perfect character for my book!

So Nick's "Nonna Maria" was born, and Nick became the frustrated grandson paying off the five-and-dime owner every month. But fiction is larger than real life, and fictional problems often escalate faster than you can turn the page. Things don't go as smoothly for Nick as they did for my cousin. A Little Light Magic takes place at the Jersey Shore near Atlantic City. It's not long before Nonna decides the local gift shop merchandise is too cheap for her taste. There are so many nicer things to be "picked up" in those fancy casino shops...

Well, you get the picture! Poor Nick. As if he didn't already have trouble enough with his rebellious teenage daughter and his menopausal mother...and with Tori Morgan, the crazy woman who's New Age shop he's renovating.

I hope you'll check out A Little Light Magic! Summer at the Jersey Shore has never been so hot...or so much fun!

Picture yourself going on a much-needed European vacation to the country of your ancestors. You’re getting off the airplane, and the red carpet is odd, but not alarming. Except, the hot guy in the fancy uniform waiting at the end, in front of a line of guards, is not head of security.

He is a prince.

Now try not to let your chin drop when he tells you that your parents had promised him your hand in marriage before they died --when you were still a child.

He whisks you away in the royal ceremonial limousine before you can get your bearings. And by the time you manage to tell him that under no circumstances will you be entering an arranged marriage with a stranger, you are both kidnapped by anti-monarchy rebels.

You don’t know the country’s politics, you don’t know the lay of the land, you don’t speak the local dialects. You only have one chance for survival: you must trust your life to the prince.

Opening Flowers on Main promises to bring her a new challenge and a new kind of fulfillment.

But not all is peaceful and serene in Chesapeake Shores, with her estranged mother on the scene and her ex-lover on the warpath. Jake Collins has plenty of reasons to want Bree out of his life, but none of those are a match for the one reason he wants her to stay: he’s still in love with her.

Jake might be able to get past that old hurt if he knew Bree was home to stay, but is she? The only way to know for sure is to take a dangerous leap of faith.

With his dreams of a professional baseball career shattered, new associate pastor Craig Houston lands his first position at the Parkside Community Church in Fairmont. But Craig harbors an unsettling concern. He questions whether he ever received “the call” to the ministry and fears he will fail his congregation. As he is drawn into the community, he meets other dreamless souls—a harried waitress who gave up her college aspiration to care for her fatherless son and her invalid grandmother; a bride whose princess-perfect life holds a guilty secret; a pregnant teenager who is looking for work and temporarily living in a tree house that overlooks Mulberry Park, and a middle-age couple who run a community soup kitchen.

Guided by the wisdom of a homeless man named Jesse, Pastor Craig and the others begin to realize that things aren’t really what they seem in Fairmont. And that dreams, like dandelion seeds scattered in the wind, can take flight and blossom in unexpected ways.
