Bush pilot and family man Tom Stokes is about to face the worst day of his life. On a clear winter morning, he sets out to do some repairs on a remote hunt camp, leaving his five-year-old son and very pregnant wife snug in their beds.
On the return trip, a squall forces him into an emergency landing and he winds up—quite literally—in the lap of petty criminal Dale Knight. Dale, now a fugitive from the law—and worse, from a merciless drug lord who just happens to be his brother—draws Tom into a web of mayhem and treachery that puts not only his life at risk, but the lives of his wife, son . . . and unborn child.
SQUALL is a fast-paced, darkly-comic tale of murder and gang-style retribution that grabs the reader on page one and just doesn’t let go.
Sensual and seductive, this novel from one of erotica’s rising stars is an unflinching journey into the dark heart of desire and the chilling secrets of those who live by night…
Vice cop Brenden Wallace has walked on the dark side for too many years. Now, newly divorced, he’s smoking too much and sleeping too little, and the empty darkness in his soul is the blackest part of any night—until he’s assigned to investigate an escort service called Exotic Jewels and meets Líadán Niamh. Lushly beautiful, she is the embodiment of seduction and thrilling control. She arouses Brenden’s most feral desires—fierce, bone-deep needs they explore together, mouth to mouth and skin to skin.
But Líadán’s hungry kiss is more dangerous than Brenden could have imagined. Women are turning up dead, and every clue leads Brenden back to Líadán—and a raw, brutal passion that could cost him his life…
Clancy Evans has been summoned back to McAdams County in the western North Carolina mountains by her friend, Starnes Carver to help locate a missing fourteen year old girl named Laurel Storm Shelton. This is the same forthright and independent young girl who helped Clancy a few years back hide her friend Rosey Washington in the forest of the Blue Ridge. Old now, and more independent, Laurel believes that her mother’s latest boyfriend has evil on his mind after he made suggestive advances towards Laurel, her mother wouldn’t believe her, and Laurel left via the mountain trails she knows so well. Clancy and Starnes have the task of finding Laurel before those who are after her get there first. The twists and turns of the story are as numerous as the twists and turns of the forest trails that Laurel follows seeking to escape her newly discovered enemies.
