This time, she’s tracking down a wealthy Scottsdale cougar named Jacky Wade, who’s been missing for a week and her clueless boyfriend, Terry Lennox, is getting desperate. But even after Laura manages to find Jacky, it seems that the trouble is only beginning. First is the death threat. Next there’s the murder. Finally there’s the kidnapping. Laura’s best friend Sophie and fellow investigator Gina Rondinelli help with the hunt while Laura enlists a group of man-hungry cougars to search the nightclubs of Scottsdale. Unfortunately, this all leads Laura into the arms of Carlos the Butcher, a guy with some serious anger issues.

If this wasn’t enough to keep her busy, Laura’s next door neighbor, Grandma Peckham, is on the prowl for a new boyfriend and she’s in serious need of Laura’s dating advice. All of this might even be manageable if it wasn’t for the fact that Laura is also trying to start a real relationship with plainclothes cop Jack Reno.

With equal parts humor, action, and mystery, Scottsdale Squeeze is the perfect light, fast, and fun summer novel.





 

Emi Lost & Found series - Winner of the Best Happily Ever After of 2013 - HEA Bookshelf

Independent and sensitive, idealistic and hopeful, Emi Hennigan lives her life with optimism and an open mind. Between sharing a tiny Manhattan apartment with her fun-loving roommate and spending most of her free time with her heart-breaker friend, Emi’s seen enough failed relationships to know what to avoid in her quest to find her true love.

Emi’s best friend, artist and hopeless romantic Nate Wilson, has been her closest companion all of their adult lives.

Over the span of a year, boundaries are crossed, feelings are confessed, and their unique friendship begins to blossom into something more.

Through Nate’s eyes, an atypical romance unfolds, disrupting the comfortable safe haven their friendship has provided. With a promising future ahead of them both, fate intervenes to bring two soul mates together.

USA Today bestselliing author Patricia Kay delivers a sexy romance that is lighthearted but still contains the emotional punch her readers have come to expect.

Playwright Alex Summerfield can't wait to get away from New York City. From his devastating divorce to a difficult bout of writer's block, his problems have made his life miserable. A working vacation in the quiet town of Juliette, New York is just the thing to get him back on track. The last thing he needs is to get stopped for speeding. And it certainly doesn't help that the cop who stops him is a sexy, blue-eyed vixen who just happens to be the sheriff of Juliette.

Sheriff Veronica Valentine has heard of Alex Summerfield -- of course, she has. She's even seen a few of his shows, but she had no idea he was a tall, dark-haired, gorgeous hunk. When his gray eyes pin hers as he argues about the speeding ticket she's writing, she knows he's trouble. And when she discovers he's the person who's rented the carriage house at the back of the property where she lives, she is very much afraid trouble has just landed at her back door.

As the summer days begin to heat up, so does the attraction between Ronnie and Alex. And even as Ronnie encourages his progress on the new play, she tries to ignore the desire that swells whenever he's near. All too soon, she knows, the season will end, and Alex will return to the city, leaving her with a broken heart and only the memory of a scorching summer passion.

Chicago Law: A Trial Lawyer's Journey


Nonfiction

Rarely do we live the life we originally intended. We make up our minds and charge down the path we’ve chosen, only to find ourselves arriving at an unexpected destination. We don’t know how it happens, but after enough time has passed, we’re able to look back and assemble the puzzle pieces to make sense of it all.

This is the business of Joseph A. Garofalo’s autobiography, except his life’s puzzle pieces are not made up only of choices and events. They also predominately take the form of people. His story introduces the many relationships that make up who he is today—those who influenced him, the woman he married, the friends he made, his coworkers and bosses, his clients, and eventually, the partners he selected for his law firm.

His story that begins in a working-class Chicago neighborhood and ends with cofounding his own firm, as well as owning a California vineyard, is an inspirational journey of self-discovery that will draw out readers’ introspection and appreciation. Because it is more than a story. It is a series of life lessons that can only be expressed in this way by one who’s learned them himself.



Miss Mai


Nonfiction - Memoir

 "Miss Mai" is a romantic memoir set in the final years of the Vietnam War. The author's progress as a naive draftee through the rigors of military training as an intelligence analyst inexorably lead him to the exotic streets of wartime Saigon. He meets Tuoi Mai under accidental circumstances and his life is altered forever after.





 

 The War Between the States had dragged on far too long, leaving behind a welter of broken bodies and broken men.

One of these is James Yancey, Lt. Colonel, CSA. Captured by the Union Army after the Battle of the Wilderness, he was sent to the officers’ prison camp at Johnson’s Island in Sandusky Bay, Ohio. Having been forced to abandon his men is a tribulation that eats at him; that does, in fact, color his whole existence with self-blame. Even after he is released, at war’s end, James is haunted by memories of what he considers his own disgrace.

With the South going through Reconstruction, his best option seems to be a move west, to join his two brothers already situated in California. During a brief stop in Charleston, his former home, he locates a girl from childhood plantation days, Emma Palmer, and seeks her hand in marriage . . .

 A story of recovery and redemption.

"A voice filled with sincerity, salvation, and splendor. A voice as stark, unforgiving, and mesmerizing as blood backing into the needle." ~ J.A. Kazimer, The Ampersand Review

From the cow fields of Connecticut to the streets of San Francisco, Joe Clifford’s Junkie Love traverses the lost highways of America, down the rocky roads of mental illness to the dead ends of addiction. Based on Clifford’s own harrowing experience with drugs as a rock ’n’ roll wannabe in the 1990s, the book draws on the best of Kerouac & the Beats, injecting a heavy dose of pulp fiction as it threads a rollicking narrative through a doomed love triangle, lit up by the many strange characters he meets along the way. Part road story, part resurrection tale, Junkie Love finds a way to laugh in one’s darkest hour, while never abandoning its heart in search of a home.

Junkie Love by Joe Clifford is an original ride through the down-and-dirty underside of the drug and music scene, inspired and propelled by Jack Kerouac’s youthful dreams of an American nirvana, translated to a later, darker generation. Clifford is its passionate spokesman.





 Gaston battled for duty and honor—until his new wife tempted him to fight for her love.

Gaston has had his fill of war and the Latin Kingdoms when he learns that he has inherited his father’s estate in France. He accepts one last quest for the Templars, the order he has served for fifteen years, and agrees to deliver a package to Paris on his way home. A practical man, Gaston knows he now has need of a wife and an heir, so when a lovely widowed noblewoman on pilgrimage catches his eye, he believes he can see matters solved to their mutual convenience.

But Ysmaine is more than a pilgrim enduring bad luck. She has buried two husbands in rapid succession, both of whom died on her nuptial night, and believes herself cursed. Accepting the offer of this gruff knight seems doomed to result in his demise, but Gaston is dismissive of her warnings and Ysmaine finds herself quickly wed again—this time to a man who is not only vital, but determined to remain alive.

Neither of them realize that Gaston’s errand is one of peril, for the package contains the treasure of the Templars—and some soul, either in their party or pursuing it, is intent upon claiming the prize for his or her own, regardless of the cost. In a company of strangers with secrets, do they dare to trust each other and the love that dawns between them?

They were wrong. Their God, their beliefs, didn't take any of that into account.
