Twilight Guardians

Wings in the Night: REBORN picks up where Wings in the Night, the series that launched the vampire romance genre, left off

20-year-old Charlotte O'Malley's life is turned upside down when she learns that the rare antigen in her blood is usually fatal. She might never live to see 30. But then she learns more, and it's even more horrifying. People with the Belladonna Antigen are the only humans who can become vampires. And now that the existence of the Undead is public knowledge, a shadowy government agency wants to register everyone who is like Charlie; one of “The Chosen,” as they're called.

Her grandmother Roxy, a woman Charlie's always thought was batshit crazy, is determined to keep her from registering, as required by law, and all but kidnaps her “for her own good.”

And then, just as she's reeling with these stunning revelations, she meets the most beautiful, the most lonely man she's ever seen, and the force that draws them together is more powerful than anything she's ever felt.

More dangerous too, because he's not what he seems. And soon her own actions put everyone she loves at risk.

TWILIGHT GUARDIANS is also available in a beautifully bound trade paperback at Amazon & BN

The Littlest Cowboy

The Texas Brand Series is Maggie Shayne's most popular series of all time. Shamelessly romantic heartwarming contemporary romance you won't be able to put down.

When a baby is left on Garrett Brand's doorstep, he's sure one of his brothers is in for an ass-kicking. But it's his own name that's on the note the little guy's mamma left, and his name this baby bears. 

He knows he never would've been irresponsible enough to get a woman pregnant and not even know about it. He's the oldest of six, and had to become a man fast to raise his siblings when their parents were killed before their time. He's the upright, honest sheriff of Quinn, Texas, and runs the family ranch, The Texas Brand, to boot.

He's had to deal with a lot, but never anything quite like the trouble on little Bubba's heels. First a furious beauty who accuses Garrett of murdering her sister and kidnapping her son, and then the young mother's real killer, a no-account criminal who doesn't deserve the baby he's trying to claim as his own.

Karen Robards

Maggie Shayne’s books have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf. She writes wonderful stories combining romance with page-turning thrills, and I highly recommend her to any fan of romantic suspense.

NY Times Bestseller Karen Robards


The Shattered Sisters series is some of the best romantic suspense on the market today. Maggie creates heart pounding page turners with plots that make sense, even while they keep you guessing. And the passion is on every page.

True crime writer Toni Rio never intended to witness a mob hit, much less be spotted by the hitmen. They give chase, and one of them tells her to play dead or die for real, then shoots at her as she flees. Some insane voice in her head convinces her to fall to the sidewalk and lie there, still, motionless, barely even breathing for fear he'll follow through.

Besides, this is the closest she's ever been to Lou Taranto's gang, and the mob boss is the subject of her current book in progress.

Nick Manelli has to keep the beautiful witness quiet, or they'll both wind up dead. So he takes her with him to his hidden apartment, tucked away within the walls of a mansion and prays he won't have to hold her for long. Because she sees too much with those big dark eyes of hers, and lying to her feels like trying to beat a polygraph. 

And she gets to him. Her spunk. Her curiosity. Her refusal to give an inch. He likes her, and that makes her dangerous. He resists his desire for her with a will of iron.

But when the jig is up and the odds are stacked against them, they surrender to the powerful attraction they've been fighting, because they know they might be dead before the night is through.

RECKLESS, Book 1 of The Shattered Sisters, is available in a gorgeous trade paperback edition at Amazon & BN

The Brands Who Came for Christmas

The Oklahoma Brand series spins off from the Texas Brands, introducing a new branch of the family, the notorious saloon owner, Vidalia, and her five adult daughters. This heart-tugging contemporary series guarantees A Miracle in Every Story, and it absolutely delivers.

An out-of-character one-night-stand results in a pregnancy, and Maya Brand's pristine reputation is destroyed. Yet she's determined to raise her babies on her own. She certainly doesn't need help from a drifter who was long gone the morning after their passionate night together.

Caleb Montgomery's brief rebellion against the legacy he's expected to take up, ended up being the best night of his life. He hasn't been able to get country-fresh Maya out of his mind ever since, but he knows seeing her again would be futile. Their lives are too different. However, when the blackmail attempt lands on his desk in a manilla envelope, complete with 8 by 10 glossies of Maya with a belly out to there, he no longer has a choice.

He heads back to the small town of Big Falls to see her again, to get to the truth, and if possible, to prove himself worthy of being a dad to their babies. That is, if he can ever get her to trust him again.

THE BRANDS WHO CAME FOR CHRISTMAS is also available in a beautiful trade paperback edition at Amazon & BN.

300 years ago, Raven St. James was hanged for witchcraft. But she revives among the dead to find herself alive. She is an Immortal High Witch, one of the light. A note from her mother warns that there are others, those of the Dark, who preserve their own lives by taking the hearts of those like her.

Duncan Wallace’s forbidden love for the secretive lass costs him his life in the priesthood, when he defies his vows to try to save her from the gallows. And yet, he fails. But when he goes to find her body among the dead, to give her a proper burial, she's not there. 

Duncan heads to the New World to seek solace for the inexplicable pain over the loss of a girl he barely knew. Taking sick aboard ship, he sees her again in his fevered dreams, and when he recovers, he's sure they were real. And his obsession with Raven is rewarded, when he finds her again, and then brutally punished when he gives his life to save hers.

300 years later, he loves her again, tormented by hazy memories of a past that can’t be real. She tells him of another lifetime, claims to be immortal. Though he knows she’s deluded, he can’t stay away. And the Dark Witch after her heart is far closer than either of them know.

THE IMMORTALS trilogy is available in a huge, beautifully bound volume in paperback at Amazon & BN.
