Cal Olin is a grudging member of the Immorti. A resurrected Aztec warrior, he knows he has much to atone for but doesn’t believe waiting for an enemy who hasn’t appeared in hundreds of years is the best way to do it. He’d prefer to spend his time in his CEO role with Civica, an organization dedicated to righting wrongs.
However, when Cal sees the unconscious body of a woman near a magical portal, he knows the long period of peace has come to an end. He’s shocked to discover the woman is Dr. Iliana Rogers, Civica’s second-in-command. The beautiful, argumentative thorn in his side has managed to open the gate and set off a chain reaction that could end the world. Is she an agent of evil or an unknowing pawn? He has to find out.
Nightmares have taken over Iliana’s dreams and with Cal, she no longer feels alone. But when he breaks into her house and tells her, incredibly, that he’s immortal, she knows she’s been living an illusion. It’s a shock to find out he was telling the truth and that her own mother was an agent of the malevolent Nilohum—and that she herself is fated to end the world.
As Iliana searches for the truth, Cal struggles with a terrible choice: does he help the woman he loves, or does he stop the end of the world and risk Iliana’s love…and life?

With Laci and Mitch anxiously awaiting the arrival of a new baby, they are surrounded by the turmoil of discovering Mama's illness while their two sons fight over the love of a woman.
A white Christmas brings a moment of joy, but Laci’s faith is tested again when their baby clings to life.
Together the Young family must lean on each other and the only One who can truly give them strength.
Will they find the faith they need…even through the snow?
At first, she thought she was just seeing things. Another appeared, and then another. Laci looked up and smiled, then closed her eyes and tilted her head back so she could catch them in her mouth as they fell. She felt like a little kid and wanted to spin around but knew her body wasn’t really up for that. The flakes grew larger, falling faster and faster and her face was now wet from the melted snow. When she opened her eyes however, the few soft snowflakes had turned into flurries, a veritable snowstorm in a few short minutes. She gasped with delight. “Let it snow!” She yelled with joy, holding out her hands and walking around in circles. It reminded her of a day, not long ago, when she had danced in the rain and asked God to heal her cancer.
“It’s snowing!” Travis yelled, running to the window. “Can I go outside with mom?” He asked.
Mitch raised his eyebrow. “What are you talking abou—?”
Mitch turned to the window and saw Laci standing in the snow.
“What in the world is that woman doing?”
Immediately, he tore out the back door.
“Laci Jean!” He shouted as he ran down the deck stairs toward her.
“It’s snowing, Mitch! It’s really snowing!” She shouted with excitement and turned toward him, but as she did her foot slipped on the snow-covered grass. Her legs gave way.
About the Author
Sandy lives in her hometown of Mt. Vernon, IL enjoying life with her two youngest kids, and works full time for a local hospital as a health consultant. Most mornings she can be found at her local bookstore-coffee shop among friends, looking for inspiration and writing her next novel.
Skin and Bone
Eight surgeries, twelve hair dye experiments, 1,834 hours of video observation, two years of yoga practice to try to make up that extra inch of height, and the public loss of gluten.
That’s what I’ve gone through for love. That’s everything I’ve given up–all the money I’ve spent, all the hours I’ve invested–to finally be with the man I’ve loved for more than a decade.
They say nothing worth having comes easy.
Everything comes with a price.
I’ve paid my dues. I’ve been more patient than anyone could ever comprehend.
And now it’s finally my time.
I step from the closet into the bathroom. I check my makeup. What the surgeries couldn’t accomplish is made up for with some well-practiced cosmetic techniques. The contour is just right. The eyebrow lift did exactly what was needed. My jaw is still sore, even though all of the swelling and bruising has finally gone away.
But as I apply a coat of lipstick--Apple Sunrise, her default color—I smile at myself.
Even my teeth required altering. Thirty-five thousand dollars, and they look just right; are just the right shade of white.
I am my own creation and I have to admire my hard work.
I press my lips together, blowing my own reflection a kiss, and step out of the bathroom. I cut through the nearly empty bedroom and aim for the dining room. My laptop sits on it, a cheap piece of technology, because after today, it’s going in the crusher of the cement company down the road.
Can’t leave any evidence behind.
Which is tragic, because really, this amounts to the same amount of work as a doctoral degree.
It’s okay though. I’ll take the loss, so long as it gets me the prize, the reward for all my hard work.
I open the web browser and sign into my email.
Just seeing the signature at the top of the page feels good. My insides flutter in excitement. Goosebumps wash over my skin.
Sawyer James at IMT Homes, I type in the address. I attach just one file and leave the body of the email empty. In the subject line, I type It was never really about you.
But that’s a lie. She may not be my main target, my main motivation, but there are fourteen years’ worth of resentment that brought us to this point.
My gaze re-focuses on the screen, and once more, I see my reflection.
Perfect, soft blonde hair. Blue eyes that border on green, thanks to contacts that are purely for color, not prescription.
A pretty face with hope in her eyes.
Here we are. One last out before it all goes down.
One last opportunity to change my mind.
I see myself smile in the screen.
Not a chance. I’ve worked too hard for this.
I press SEND and smile.

âHey, Christene. Wait up!â
I stopped mid-step, and my heart stuttered.
That voice. Iâd remember that voice anywhere. Thick. Deep. Sexy.
Itâd been months since I heard him or seen him in person. Iâd viewed every movie heâd made, watched every YouTube video of his interviews, and listened in on my sisterâs conversations with her boyfriend just to hear what was going on in his life.
My pulse ticked up in tempo. Tick. Tick. Tick. Like a bass drumming on the inside of my wrists.
I froze, took a deep breath, composed myself, and turned around ever so slowly to find Jordan Ryderâthe highest-paid actor in show business, Hollywoodâs hotshot, Americaâs it guyâstaring right back at me.
He was also Cadeâs adopted brother. Yep. My sisterâs boyfriendâs brother.
He blew out a breath of smoke and then flicked his cigarette to the side. A sizzle of electric energy surged between us, just like that very first day Iâd met him months ago.
I took a step forward, and as though the world had suddenly tilted on its axis, I lost my footing. In slow motion, as if I were in The Matrix, my legs gave out, and I saw the ground, the gum on the concrete, the cracks in the foundation. One knee hit the concrete before I felt a pair of strong hands reach out to steady me.
My hands fell to his hips, and I thanked the heavens above that I hadnât totally wiped out. I thought I had been saved, saved by an angel. But just when I was about to pull myself up, my other knee gave out, and I face-planted. Not on the ground, but into his crotch.
Oh. My. God.
When I tried to push myself to a standing position, pain seared through my scalp. Because, like on an episode of Americaâs Funniest Home Videos, I realized my perfect curls were stuck on his belt buckle.
âOne second,â Jordan said.
Is he laughing?
Shit. Shit. Shit. He is.

He’s always dated the “perfect” girls. He’s never met a girl as perfect as her before.
“Hear her story,” his younger brother, Jack, says. Amos doesn’t want to, especially when he discovers the tall, beautiful physical therapist was a wartime amputee. That was before the Kentucky Department of Criminal Investigations agent hears about her sister’s unsolved murder. When Amos agrees to go over the files, Daesha Wilkerson is thrilled. Maybe she’ll finally get the justice her sister deserves.
That fresh look brings a new clue and a new piece of evidence, thanks to San Antonio FBI Agent Cruz Livingston. Everything points to three brothers and their politician father. What Amos suspects is outlandish. Perverted. Unlikely. And would explain everything, including why their father would want Dorinda Wilkerson Blackmon dead. When Amos starts getting too close, the threats begin. It’s easy to protect her from the warm spot next to her in bed, but they can’t stay there all the time, and all it takes is one instant with his back turned for her to disappear.
He was crazy for her body, but she stole his heart, in the sack and out. Secrets, love, business, politics, and erotic pleasures collide in Bluegrass Bravery: Justice for Daesha. It’s up to Amos to find her. He has to. She’s perfect for him.

A Perfect Mistake
I needed to get laid. At least, that’s what my amber cocktail made me think—correction, my third amber cocktail. If the first two hadn’t murdered my inhibition, the third managed to land the final blow.
Minus my usual filter, my eyes wandered around the room, hunting for a man to prey on. The bar was packed for a Tuesday night. Waves of chatter encompassed me, creating a low hum in my ears. But I didn’t care about the noise, not when a particular delicious specimen held me captivated, with hair the hue of rich caramel sticking out in different directions. He sat at the bar, hunched over his drink. A brunette with boobs practically spilling out of her top tried to speak to him, but he shook his head and tapped in front of his ear twice, before turning back to his drink.
She may have slinked back to her friend, but I bit my lip, taming down the grin threatening to split my face. Perfect. My fingers itched to communicate, or smooth down his messy hair.
Before I could make up my mind, his broad shoulders stiffened and he turned. My alcohol-induced bravado vanished, and I tried to wrench my gaze away. Except, I didn’t move. Not an inch. Total disconnect from cranial activity to body movement. Damn fruity drinks. A pair of brown eyes locked with mine. Crap. I knew better than to be rude and stare.
Quick, sign something, I willed my hands, anything.
