Join Tammy Falkner, Jane Charles, Ava Stone, Marquita Valentine, Lexi Eddings, Lj Charles, Andris Bear, Jerrica Knight-Catania, Caren Crane and Diane Franks to help combat this terrible disease.
Tammy Falkner: All About Adam – “So you see, there was this man…” All good stories start like that. Except this one. “… There was this man, and he broke my heart.”
Andris Bear: Inked – The only thing officer Brent Copeland wants when he enters Reeds’ is some fresh ink to honor his fallen partner. But when he comes face to face with Honor Sloan, a hellcat he arrested six months ago, he must confront the mistakes of his past if he is to have any chance at a future.
Jane Charles: Rattled – She enters the tattoo shop with an envelope full of memories and a heart filled with longing. What she leaves with is more than she dreamed of, and it just might be the first step to healing the wounds of the past.

Lexi Eddings – Coldwater Blues – Michael Evans is the poster boy for trouble on two legs. After losing the one person who ever believed he’d amount to anything, he hitches his way across country to the Big Apple, convinced he can outrun the mistakes that forced him to leave his hometown. But as his dear Gran always said, “Wherever you go, Mike, there you are…”
Jerrica Knight Catania: The Knot – Ethan Masters never imagined he’d go for a girl with a tattoo, but when he learns the story behind Madison Kennedy’s mysterious design, all he wants to do is take care of her.

Diane Franks: The Way Back – He’s not the man he used to be. She’s desperate to find a way to bring him back to her. She needs a tattoo to help her remember. She needs a tattoo so he won’t forget.
End times are approaching, and both Heaven and Hell are fighting for the upper hand—one to keep prophecy, the other to break it.
Hell has literally come to Earth for one mortal and what’s worse, she is expected to leave behind all hope for a family of her own to stand in defense of humanity against the darkest forces of Hell. But when Satan offers her the normal life she covets, Joey must decide if the price of mankind’s salvation is worth her own damnation.
Strong-willed Joey Benton is the half-mortal child of an angel with heavenly powers. She has no knowledge of her heritage or the power running through her veins until she meets a handsome stranger who forces her to question her life and the world around her. And she quickly becomes a key player in a battle that will define a victory for Heaven or Hell.
Ursus, a sexy Archangel, doesn’t want the responsibility of another charge, especially when Joey is so defiant. Protecting her from Hell might very well be the biggest challenge of his immortal life. But when his feelings for Joey get in the way of his duty, it’s a challenge he refuses to lose.
ANGEL REDEEMED-BONUS NOVELETTE
Ripped from afterlife, Ursus, a defiant archangel, faces an ancient prophecy regarding the only woman to capture his heart. Will he bend to Heaven’s will or claim her as his own?
When tenacious archangel Liadin is forced to shadow a mortal, she’s tempted to ditch the responsibility of her new charge and return to the battlefield. But Detective Jacob Ryder isn’t all he seems. He’s been to the realm of the dead and brought something back with him. Even worse, Liadin finds herself inexplicably drawn to the brooding detective.
Haunted by betrayal, Jake regards everyone with suspicion, especially the mysterious dark beauty with eyes as pale as ice. But when Hell places a bounty on his head, Jake realizes he can’t solve his partner’s death or hope to survive without her.
Thrust together against their will in a war against the darkest entities of Hell, Jake and Liadin must work together to thwart a common enemy. And brave the forbidden hunger consuming them both.
The hero and heroine of ANGEL UNLEASHED, Jake Ryder and Liadin, return for a novella adventure. Jake and Lia fought Heaven and Hell for their happily ever after, but when Jake takes down a petty thief, he becomes the target of a dark and powerful force—one Liadin can’t kill.
This BOX SET includes Lovers Lane, Memory Lane, and Dead End Lane.
After her sister is attacked and left clinging to life, Roxana Lane vows revenge on the man responsible. But the closer she gets, the more detective Nathan Scott watches her every move.

A contradictory mix of strength and vulnerability, Roxy is a conflict of interest that fascinates him on every level. But when the sexy amateur sleuth uncovers Scandal’s dark underbelly, he must choose between the woman he wants and the law he serves.
The man who put Roxy Lane’s sister in a coma is still living his wealthy, entitled life, hiding behind a veil of privilege and power.
The law can’t touch him. But Roxy isn’t the law, and he isn’t aware she’s watching… waiting…. For it’s not due process she wants but vengeance.
Detective Nathan Scott wants justice as much as Roxy, but with no evidence to investigate and pressure from superiors to look in another direction, the clock is ticking.
And it’s only a matter of time before the woman he’s come to care for takes matters into her own hands.
