Letting Go


Letting Go
by Abbie Zanders
Genre: Contemporary Romance



When it comes to love, no mission is impossible.
After learning her father has ALS, Hannah McGinnis returns home to Muskrat Falls, determined to oversee his care --- whether he likes it or not. Dealing with an imperfect health care system and her gruff, abrasive father is a challenge, but Hannah is every bit as stubborn as he is.
Colonel Angus McGinnis, US Army Rangers, Ret. knows he hasn’t been an ideal father but before he ships out, he’s made it his mission to see his daughter happy and settled with a man worthy of her, one who will love her and treat her like the amazing woman she is. It’s got to be a covert mission though, because if Hannah realizes what he’s up to, she’ll mount her own campaign … of resistance.
A year after an IED ended his military career, former US Army Ranger Medic Sergeant Ethan O’Malley is going to put his life back together, whether he thinks he’s ready to or not. The first step is accepting a position as a live-in caretaker to his father’s old Army buddy. The second will be getting the Colonel’s feisty daughter to accept him. The hostile yet intriguing Hannah isn’t going to make it easy for him, but Ethan is committed and he hasn’t failed a mission yet.
Three headstrong, determined people. Three challenging missions. Having a plan Bravo isn’t going to be enough; to succeed, they’re each going to need plans CharlieDelta, and Foxtrot, too.

Blurb:

Wait until he gets a taste of her.

Tossed out by her coven, Abigail has to brave the human world and get a real job. With no skills outside of potions and spells, she magics her way out of unemployment and into the executive suite of Midnight Pharmaceutical.

But something strange is going on at Midnight. While her boss is the very definition of dark and mysterious, he makes her witchy sense tingle with his odd hours and the string of women leaving his office every day...

She'll find out what's happening at Midnight; if her boss doesn't take a bite out of her first.

Excerpt:

An unladylike oof left Abigail as she began to fall to the floor only to be caught around the waist by a strong pair of arms. Her eyes shot up to her savior and the reason behind her fall, Abigail was instantly beguiled. For the first time in her life, it was she who was bespelled.

Blue eyes as deep and dark as sapphires gleamed down at her in impatience. A strong jaw clenched tight, held kissable lips that frowned at her. If the face wasn't enough to enchant her, the full head of black, silk hair that hinted of blue in the light made her hands itch to see how soft it actually was. It was enough to make anyone fall under his spell.

"Oh, good catch." Mandy watched in amusement, gesturing toward the god-like creature still holding Abigail in his arms. "This is Sebastian Storm, the CEO of Midnight Pharmaceutical and your new boss."

This was her boss? Abigail's eyes turned back to the man holding her in his arms. This glorious specimen of a man was going to be the one she answered to every day for the foreseeable future?

Any other time she would be thrilled to have any kind of attention from someone like him. Not only was he gorgeous but he hadn't even said a word and his presence demanded all of her attention. This was a man that got what he wanted, no questions asked. Thoughts of him commanding her in the bedroom seeped into her mind before she could help it, and she blushed.

“Was there something you needed, Mr. Storm?” Mandy asked the stoic man still holding onto Abigail’s waist.

“Yes, I was wondering how long I would have to wait for a new secretary. Things are beginning to pile up, and Lisa cannot keep doing two jobs, she’s hardly proficient in the one she has.”

If Abigail hadn’t already been on the verge of melting into the floor, the sound of his voice would have done it. It made her think of warm silk covered in the best chocolate; the hint of Hispanic heritage in his accent added a spicy edge to it. It was a voice she wanted to wrap around herself and savor.

"Well, you are in luck. It just so happens that this is Abigail Blanchard, your new night secretary."

At the introduction, Sebastian instantly dropped his hands from around her waist, leaving Abigail cold from where his arms had touched her. He stepped back from her, clearing his throat as he straightened the cuffs of his suit. His eyes went from curious to hard in an instant. All thoughts of this man ever embracing her for real were dashed from her mind.

Saddened by the thought, Abigail pushed it to the back of her mind as she realized what Mandy had just said. "Night secretary?"

Mandy nodded her head, her lips curving down. "Yes, the position you applied for was for Mr. Storm's nighttime secretary. Midnight Pharmaceutical is the only ever twenty-four-hour research and development facility.” Her brow crinkled as she glanced down at the papers in front of her. “I apologize, I thought you knew or I would have gone back over it in the interview."

"No, no." Abigail quickly jumped in, not wanting to look any more foolish in front of her new boss than she already did. "I am the one who should apologize. I remember now. It must have just slipped my mind from all the excitement."

"Well, it can be a little overwhelming at first," Mandy reassured her with a pat of her hand. "Midnight is like no other company you have ever worked for or ever will. We are ferociously loyal and we rarely have to hire new employees. Your position opening up was a surprise to us all. The last secretary went on maternity leave and suddenly decided not to come back to work. Hopefully, you will love it here as much as the rest of us and we won't have to hire someone else for a decade or so."

Abigail nodded her head politely. "Oh, don't worry, I don't plan on having children anytime soon. I think even the prospect of a boyfriend would be required first." Even as the words came out of her mouth, she felt herself freeze up. What the hell was she saying? Way to let them know just how pathetic she really was.

Internally, she was smacking herself over and over again but her inner torture was halted by a kind of choking sound coming from Sebastian. Jerking her attention back to her new boss, her eyes narrowed. From the slight gleam in his eyes, he was laughing at her.

"Welcome to Midnight, Miss Blanchard." The way he said her name in a deep accent pulled things low inside of her, and just like that, her fantasies of being bossed around by the wonderful man with the sinful voice were back in full swing.

~*~*~*~Shattered Dreams~*~*~*~



Spencer James was no hero – cheating on his wife and all – but until recently, Spencer hadn’t seen what he did at Esoteric, the private BDSM club where he was a member, as cheating. What he did there – dominate women sexually – he did to protect Izzy, not to hurt her. Two very different sides to the same coin, each as vital to his survival as the other; Spencer needed the club like most people needed air. But falling in love with his submissive was never part of the plan. And now that she’d disappeared, he’d stop at nothing to find her.

A lifetime of physical abuse is what led Ashlan to Esoteric. She knew if her husband ever found out about the club, she’d die a slow, painful death. But even that hadn’t been enough to keep her away. In a life of hell, Esoteric was the only place she’d ever found peace...until she accidentally let it slip to Master Spence that she was being abused. Now she had no choice but to run.

Living in the shadow of her brother’s fame sucks! Sam Collins is desperate to have what she wants—a simple and uncomplicated life. She’s no stranger to scandals and how they work.

Rhythm is the heart of every song.

Jase Collins lives for the stage and the perks of rock stardom. His wild antics and high-profile affairs have earned the sexy drummer the title of Hot Wired’s bad boy. He’s not quite as jaded as his fans think — but just jaded enough not to recognize the best thing that’s ever happened to him until she walks out of his life. And he doesn’t even know her name.

But without harmony, a man is lost.

Fallon Morgan has had her life mapped out since high school. She’s earned a full ride scholarship to UCLA with the driving goal of earning her doctorate.

His chilly reception the morning after convinces her to put her biggest mistake in the past and move on without looking back.

When two hearts begin to beat as one…

When Fallon’s life takes a dramatic turn, she finds herself with no one else to turn to for help. Jase is obnoxious, demanding, and yet surprisingly tender. Though it chafes her to depend on him, the more time she spends with him changes her perceptions of the bad boy rocker. With each passing day she finds more and more faith in the man behind the public persona. If she can learn to trust her feelings, she might be willing to risk her heart.

They could find themselves Lost in the Beat!

Stone Emmerson, heir to a position of supreme power, is surprised to learn his best friend Kella is an X-gene carrier. He’s quick to claim her as his own, but as a mere servant, Kella can’t help but doubt his motives. Before he can offer the protection of his name, she escapes his household. Mourning her loss, Stone becomes a black sheep among his peers by focusing on the welfare of his people.

While survival and freedom hang in the balance…

Starting over under an assumed name, Kella is a founding member of the X-Diplomats, a radical group dedicated to stopping enforced X-gene testing and promoting equal rights for commoners. Years pass before she crosses paths with Stone again. As the web of deceit that has come between them unravels, their love begins to grow. But can Stone turn a blind eye to Kella’s violent revolution and see the justice of her cause? Or will their differences prove too great to overcome?

What price would you pay to break the chains of oppression?

The Reanimation Files


The Reanimation Files
by AJ Locke
Genre: Paranormal/Ghosts/Urban Fantasy/Multicultural/Interracial/Comedy

Affairs of the Dead Book 1

Help ghosts, stop a thief, and try not to die…

Necromancer Selene Vanream helps ghosts settle their affairs so they can move on. But when breaking the rules gets her in trouble, she’s bumped down to tracking ghosts trying to avoid the afterlife. Ghosts like Ethan Lance, who claims he was kicked out of his body when someone else jumped in. Which might be plausible—if such a thing were possible. And if Micah, Selene’s partner, didn’t pull her into an investigation of brutal murders that lead directly back to Ethan.


But when the whole mess puts Selene’s life in danger, she suddenly has very personal reasons to get Ethan’s body back. Between her uncomfortable relationship with Micah, and problems with her boss, Selene learns just how much trouble it can be when you don’t follow the rules…




Requiem for the Living Book 2

Selene is slowly dying...too bad that’s the least of her problems.
You could say that Selene Vanream has a lot of problems. First there’s the Rot that’s slowly killing her, despite everything Ilyse and Micah are doing to find a way to save her.
Then there’s Andrew, the ghost of her boss who is anchored to the living world. Selene would like to ignore him, but anchored ghosts with unsettled business turn into anchored beasties, so she can’t write him off. The government has sent a team to post up at Affairs of the Dead and keep an eye on her, which includes making sure she plays up to Andrew to keep him from turning.
On top of that, someone is using Selene’s new power to create anchored ghosts for their loved ones to keep around. Not good since the culprit doesn’t have a clue about that whole anchored beastie angle. Now Selene has a criminal to catch while trying to stay out of the hands of government goons who have stripping her reanimation power on their agenda.


When Micah and Ilyse finally find a way to save her, Selene thinks she can cross one bad thing off her list--until she learns the terrible price that must be paid to keep her alive. Full plate doesn’t cover it. Overflowing plate doesn’t cover it. Selene’s plate has damn near exploded.


The Ravaging In Between Book 3

Sometimes death is only the beginning...

Selene Vanream died—for two minutes. After being revived, she spends over a month in a coma before she awakes, free from the Rot and the reanimation power that caused her so much trouble. No one can explain how Selene survived killing Renton while he possessed her reanimation power, and her reunion with Micah is marred by the choices they each made to save her and stop Renton.


But even though she's Rot free, she isn't problem free. First, she no longer has a job at Affairs of the Dead. And Ethan is missing and she can't track him down. Not only that, ghosts that were sent to the Afterlife with unfinished business have somehow crossed back and are trying to settle the score in violent ways. If that wasn't enough, Selene discovers that dying briefly has more consequences than she realized, because when she was revived, not all of her came back. Now she's straddling both the living world and the dead, and she will find out what it means to come back to life but leave part of her soul behind.




A Torment of Savages Book 4

When your soul isn't your own, you'll do anything to get it back.

After months of danger and deadly threats, Selene Vanream finally has some much needed downtime and a chance to focus on mending her relationship with Micah. She’s even accepted a job working for The Paranormal Control Center to quietly resolve issues within the paranormal community. After the supernatural devastation New York City's been through, quiet resolutions are best.


But peace can't last forever. As Selene and Kyo's ghost embark on the search for Kyo's body, Selene finds out firsthand the violent lengths the dead witches are willing to go to in order to keep their secrets safe. What's more, a new, dark and deadly being has emerged from the In Between and is turning people into darkness-filled Savages intent on reaping souls until she gets the soul she’s really owed–Selene's. This new evil is determined to get what she was promised, but not before innocent people pay the price, including someone very near to Selene’s heart.


Now all Selene has to do is find out how her life became a bargaining chip to a psychotic monster, keep the ones she loves from danger, and make sure her soul isn't ripped from her body and dragged to hell in the process. Some girls have all the fun.
