    New Books

    We published one new book in June--and if you act quickly there's still time to take advantage of the introductory $1 pricing.

    Hunger by Rob Preece coverHUNGER, by Rob Preece is a sexy paranormal romance/urban fantasy. He's hungered for centuries but now Ewan believes his hunger can be satisfied. What he demands from Tia Burns, though, is far more than her blood. Because Ewan isn't a vampire--exactly. He's something far more powerful--something that, to Tia's mind, is completely forbidden. Price is only $3.99--but only $1 until July 22th. Learn more, read the free excerpt, or buy the book here.

    Coming in July

    In July, we're looking forward to publication of DEADLY TURN, the latest in Michael Paulson's vivid Deacon Bishop hardboiled detective series. Bishop gets into more trouble--but doesn't even realize his biggest trouble, with beautiful Rita Portello gunning for him in a way he just doesn't get. (In other news, Michael Paulson tells me there's at least one more Deacon Bishop mystery coming after DEADLY TURN).

    As always, you'll want to check back often to take advantage of our introductory pricing and to get the books when they're available nowhere else but directly from
