SYNOPSIS:

Following the light can’t be that hard, right? So why don’t the dead just do it and leave Stephanie Stewart alone?

However nothing is ever as simple as it should be, as Stephanie learns when her hidden ‘gift’ becomes more than a nuisance, quickly turning unto a liability.

If she can’t learn to trust someone with her secret, the world as she knows it will go to hell. Literally. But if she doesn’t choose wisely, she might just end up learning firsthand how hard it is to follow that light.

Because she’s next on the list to be crossed out.

When Rebecca’s father tries to marry her off to a wealthy old man, Geoffrey intervenes and marries her himself. He wants her very much but he couldn’t possibly love her. Love is for fools. At least that’s what he tells himself. But a sinister enemy soon threatens to destroy all that Geoffrey holds dear, forcing him to face the truth. His marriage depends on it . . . And maybe even Rebecca’s very life.

Bestselling western romance authors, Kat Flannery and Alison Bruce take you on an exciting journey…

Twin sisters separated by war, bound by love…

After the death of their father, twin sisters Maggie and Matty Becker are forced to take positions with officers’ families at a nearby fort. When the southern states secede, the twins are separated, and they find themselves on opposite sides of America’s bloodiest war.

In the south, Maggie travels with the Hamiltons to Bellevue, a plantation in west Tennessee. When Major Hamilton is captured, it is up to Maggie to hold things together and deal with the Union cavalry troop that winters at Bellevue. Racism, politics and a matchmaking stepmother test Maggie’s resourcefulness as she fights for Bellevue, a wounded Confederate officer and the affections of the Union commander.

In the north, Matty discovers an incriminating letter in General Worthington’s office, and soon she is on the run. With no one to turn to for help, she drugs the wealthy Colonel Cole Black and marries him, in hopes of getting the letter to his father, the governor of Michigan. But Cole is not happy about being married, and Matty’s life becomes all about survival.

ABOUT ALISON BRUCE:
Alison Bruce has an honors degree in history and philosophy, which has nothing to do with any regular job she’s held since. A liberal arts education did prepare her to be a writer, however. She penned her first novel during lectures while pretending to take notes.

Alison writes mysteries, romance, westerns and fantasy. Her protagonists are marked by their strength of character, the ability to adapt (sooner or later) to new situations and to learn from adversity.

ABOUT KAT FLANNERY:

Kat Flannery has loved writing ever since she was a girl. She is often seen jotting her ideas down in a little black book. When not writing or in school, she enjoys snuggling on her couch with a hot chocolate and a great book.

Kat has had her writing published in numerous periodicals. She is now hard at work on the next novel. When not focusing on her creative passions, she is busy with her three boys and doting husband.

In “Moving Pictures” by Annette Blair, a down-but-never-out woman lands a much-needed job working for one of the top advertising agencies in the country. Her boss is an award-winning exec whose focus has been solely on work for the past few years, to the exclusion of everything else. She doesn’t know why, and he isn’t prepared to tell her.

EXCERPT:
SOS. Their code to each other. Sisters of Spirit—one of them needed support. Marina Simms gazed at the email. Confused because it seemed to come from her, though the preview screen indicated they’d all received it. She hit ‘reply all’—with the date and time of the ferry to catch for a quiet weekend getaway. Four friends. They discovered a common bond and were soon awed by the psychic connections that grew between them, a universal thread none of them could ignore. And now, one of them called out to her Sisters.

They met at the dock in the chill May breeze. After a flurry of hugs and kisses, the four women ascended the stairway to the ferry’s open bow deck. They sat huddled together, enjoying the quiet of being together, smiles lighting their faces.

Marina adjusted her large dark sunglasses against the sun’s glare reflecting off the water.
Clara pulled her plaid scarf higher on her neck and tucked a cocoa curl behind her ear, then she hugged Marina close. “I am so happy to be here.”

The thick auburn ponytail that Bryce pulled through the back of a ‘Life is Good’ cap bobbed as she nodded her agreement. “Me too. I need this so badly!”

Anastasia, her wavy blonde hair streaked with a fun splash of teal, laughed. “It’s as if the island knows when we need each other.”

“So you need this, too. I’m not the only one.”

Marina was thankful her dark lenses hid the moisture filling her eyes. SOS. No one fessed up to sending the call, but apparently it came at a good time for all.

http://www.amazon.com/Death-Crosses-Finish-Line-ebook/dp/B008G0YXB8/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1362083762&sr=8-7&keywords=deann+smallwood

PUBLISHER: SoulMate Publishing

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Carrie Preston has a puzzling and mysterious gift for sensing motive, desire and direction of a perpetrator and killer. Homicide Detective Tom Watts recognizes this gift and is not beyond exploiting it. Waking one midnight to the ringing telephone, Carrie knows the voice on the other end.

Tom begins his familiar plea, asking for her help in solving recent murders that appear to be connected. A pattern develops of brutal knifings in health clubs with the victims all women. What is the tie in? Carrie protests she doesn’t need Tom Watt’s brand of sickness, but she cannot help feeling the familiar draw both to solving the tragic killings and to Tom Watts.

Carrie and Tom chase clues throughout Colorado from Denver to the famous ski town of Aspen, stopping over to recoup and enjoy each other’s company in the world famous Hot Springs Pool at Glenwood Springs. Carrie and Tom may be getting closer as they follow the horrendous trail, the sites of brutal and gruesome deaths, but so is the killer. Closer to Carrie that is. Suspense mounts with each murder, each clue, and every sensation that Carrie follows toward revelation. In a parallel line, the growing tension between Tom and Carrie increases and builds. Both resolutions promise like terror-risk and danger. Will the killer change his pattern and decide to make Carrie his next “special treat, his bon-bon”?

REVIEWS:

Carrie Preston has a gift she thinks most people have, but keeps locked within themselves. She’s happy with her life teaching seminars on how to unlock your inner potential. So why does she agree to help Lt. Tom Watts with a chilling serial killer? But the draw of the case – and the man himself, has her climbing out of her warm bed and heading to a grisly murder scene.

Lest I spoil the story for you, I won’t say more than get a copy of this book. D. M. Woods has constructed a riveting tale, with strong characters, and a fast paced plot. To say I couldn’t put the book down is a major understatement. Ms Woods has started a fantastic series, and I wait with bated breath for #2. Colleen Greene w/a Callie Hutton

What if you were a witch and didn’t know it?

Phaedra Michaels is a small town psychologist who is beginning to lose hope. Two of her patients at the local hospital in Dismal, Alabama have just killed themselves, she’s still reeling from her divorce and what turned out to be a disastrous marriage, and her father has died, leaving her without any notion of who her real mother is.

Just as Phaedra decides to commit herself to a serious drinking problem and an eating disorder, or two, a mysterious spell book arrives in the mail. Feeling desperate, Phaedra uses it to cast spells to save her fading patients. Suddenly, good things start happening. Phaedra’s patients begin to get better and she even starts dating the sexy doctor from the hospital.

Phaedra is so happy she doesn’t notice the small things that start to go wrong in Dismal, or the dark creatures slithering out of the shadows near her house. When Phaedra finally realizes her spells have attracted every card-carrying demon from hell, she has no choice but to accept help from a slightly nerdy, 500 year-old warlock with a penchant for wearing super hero T-shirts and a knack for getting under Phaedra’s skin. Now, if only she could get the hang of this witch thing, she might be able to save her town.
