Description : From one of Outside magazine’s “Literary All-Stars” comes the thrilling true tale of the fastest boat ride ever, down the entire length of the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon, during the legendary flood of 1983.

In the spring of 1983, massive flooding along the length of the Colorado River confronted a team of engineers at the Glen Canyon Dam with an unprecedented emergency that may have resulted in the most catastrophic dam failure in history. In the midst of this crisis, the decision to launch a small wooden dory named “The Emerald Mile” at the head of the Grand Canyon, just fifteen miles downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam, seemed not just odd, but downright suicidal.

The Emerald Mile, at one time slated to be destroyed, was rescued and brought back to life by Kenton Grua, the man at the oars, who intended to use this flood as a kind of hydraulic sling-shot. The goal was to nail the all-time record for the fastest boat ever propelled—by oar, by motor, or by the grace of God himself—down the entire length of the Colorado River from Lee’s Ferry to Lake Mead. Did he survive? Just barely. Now, this remarkable, epic feat unfolds here, in The Emerald Mile.

Description : The sixth dragon has awakened....

After centuries of searching, the impossible has finally happened: Aegis, the Emerald Dragon, has found his long-lost mate. The only problem? She's a captive of the dark forces he's allied himself with in order to meet his own selfish ends. But Aegis knows how to be a hero, it just takes the right motivation. Like saving the only person that has ever mattered to him.

The Opal dragon has been a prisoner of the dark oracle for far too long, and imprisonment is starting to take it's toll. Until her knight in shining armor finally arrives in the shape of her childhood friend and the only man she's ever been attracted to. Aegis. The same Aegis that happens to working openly for the side of evil. But in a sharp turn of events, Aegis rescues her and seeks out the other awakened dragons, showing that maybe even the baddest of boys can have a change of heart.

Despite a very rocky start with their newfound allies, the two best friends are given a second chance at discovering love. But even though the attraction between them is hotter than dragon fire, it will take more than that to change the unruly emerald dragon. And time is quickly running out as it becomes clear that the enemies of the awakened dragons are gearing up for the ultimate showdown.

Description : Shy and curvy Jade Summers has almost lost hope she would ever get her happily-ever-after. After all, she was never lucky in love, so why would she be now? She came at the Alma Venus Agency for Mail-Order Brides because she thought shape-shifters made better husbands than human guys. Now, she isn’t sure anymore…

Dragon-shifter Kaden Grimmr needs a bride. And fast. He’s the Alpha of the Emerald Wing, and he believes it’s time to divide his father’s clan and take his dragons to a new place and a new future. The problem is that his father, Calder Grimmr, refuses to give him his blessing unless he gets himself a mail-order bride so he’d one day have heirs. Kaden has no choice. As much as he hates the idea of mail-order brides, he’ll have to make a compromise and find one.

He wants a marriage of convenience. She wants true love.

When Kaden messages her and tells her exactly what he needs, Jade wants to refuse him. But he’s so tall, hot and handsome that it’s very hard to say “no” to him. Maybe, if she takes this one risk, true love will be waiting for her at the end of the road.

Emerald Dragon is a full, standalone novella, with a happily-ever-after, and NO cliffhangers. Intended for readers 18+

He’s brought a twenty-something named Angela with him.

Lily is determined to make do and enlists Enzo to find her a suitable man. But it’s not as easy to find new love as they both expected.

Stacy Justice may be a witch, but she still wants a nice, normal twenty-ninth birthday. Unfortunately, Stacy rarely gets normal. As her grandmother, Birdie, plans a birthday ritual for Stacy, disastrous news derails the celebration: the magic cauldron that supplies the world’s food has disappeared. And the last time it vanished, Ireland fell under the Great Famine.

A secret society known as The Council decrees that if Stacy finds the cauldron, she’ll receive the coveted role of Seeker of Justice, and her mother will finally be freed from prison in Ireland.
