By Jami Brumfield
Tessa Martin is on the hunt for a stone with the power to scare victims to death. Her job is to find mystical items and store the dangerous ones away in a vault made to shield the magic from harming innocents. While a noble crusade, it is a job that leaves little time for romance. The last thing she needs is to fall in love, but when she meets Jackson, her world is shaken to the core and her future becomes uncertain.
Phoenix shifter, Jackson Brand is struggling to launch his restaurant and finds himself in dire straits when Tessa walks into his life. The loan for the restaurant is in jeopardy of being recalled and his investor isn’t the kind of man you avoid paying unless you want to lose a leg or a finger. The last thing he needs is a mate he needs to protect from his past, but sometimes fate likes to add a Dash of Sass to the mix.
The treasure hunt will force the couple together, but the magic they make may not be enough to keep them from falling apart. Partnerships will be tested, people will get hurt, lives may even be lost as they are thrown into a mystery that promises to have an explosive ending.
From Scotland with Sassy
By AK Michaels
Belle is just too sassy for her own good. It’s gotten her into hot water one time too many and she knows she’s treading a thin line with her Alpha. So what does she do when she’s forced to pick up a sexy-as-sin Scotsman and return him to the Pack? Heck, as soon as the Alpha’s mate goes near him, she growls at her! She’s lucky to make it out of there in one piece, and she’s sure it’s the hot Highlander who saved her.
What was supposed to be a pick him up, drop him off, and make her getaway kinda day, turns into a scorching hot encounter that takes her breath away, at the same time as her sanity. Mr. Sex-on-Legs Scotsman has her heart racing every time he glances her way, her Wolf acting like a love-sick pup, his beast calling to hers as only a soul-mate can.
With rogue Wolves in the area, willing to take what they want, and what they want is Belle, can the lovers find each other and seal their bond before it’s too late?

Two long decades. That’s how long it took Jaxon Barnett to accept that Maple, his mate, was gone for good. Too young to be anyone’s mate, she’d been whisked away, and no amount of searching had brought him any closer to finding her.
After an attack leaves the Wassookeag pack devastated, Jaxon resigns himself to attending the Wolfe family’s scenting ceremony to find a suitable mate. That is, until the scent that had haunted him for years sends him racing through the forest, back to the old cabin where fate had played its cruel joke and stolen her from him.
Maple was back, and this time, she wouldn’t get away.

Claws, Class and a Whole Lotta Sass
By Julia Mills
Hiding in plain sight as the Pack Healer for a bunch of wolves was the perfect cover…
Using ancient magic to hide her true nature hadn’t always been easy, but it beat the hell outta being dead...then he waltzed in. Six foot-nine inches of pure male dragon, looking better than a man had a right to and making her dragoness wake from a long hibernation to spread her wings, not only rocked Dannika’s world, it almost turned it upside-down. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an evil as old as time and twice as deadly has reared its ugly head. Her ability to hide behind her patented sassy attitude may have kept Dannika safe for all these years, but now the future of all things paranormal is at stake and only she holds the key to its survival...well, at least part of it.
It was supposed to be a simple cross country trip, but then, he’d heard that somewhere before…
Since the death of his father almost a century ago, Wolfe McCallum’s life had been a series of incredible ups and devastating downs that made riding a roller coaster seem like a walk in the park. It also didn’t help that he freely admitted to being more stubborn than a mule and twice as contrary. He prided himself on being able to outlast, out argue, or just plain irritate anyone on the planet into giving up without raising a single claw or breaking a sweat...until he damn near tripped over the most beautiful woman in the world.
One look…one kiss…one extraordinary night…
Secrets unlocked, Destiny knocking at the door, and a Fate that will not be denied. Keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times, be prepared for sudden stops, and by all means – buckle up. Fireworks are the least of your worries when one bull-headed dragon and his sassy-since-birth dragoness are faced with saving not only themselves, but everyone and everything they hold dear.
The Universe may not make mistakes, but She doesn’t make things easy either. It’s gonna take claws, class, and a whole lotta sass to save the day this time.
