She has it all, but she still has nothing.
Married to a local politician, Jane Ramos-Palmer won’t put her dreams aside for her husband’s any longer. Overhearing her husband being blackmailed, Janie realizes nothing in her life is as it seems. She’s willing to ditch all she has, so she can gain everything she ever wanted. Fighting an ugly divorce, meeting and falling for Beast couldn’t happen at a worse time for Janie. Escaping her oppressive husband is her top priority, which means her infatuation with a biker must wait.
His world was wrenched cruelly away from him. David “Beast” Huntley’s trust has been violated, and being twice shy means he’s determined not to get involved with another woman. At least not seriously, and not any time soon. But Janie provokes something in him. His attraction to her gnaws at him, even though she’s mired in an ugly divorce with a sketchy politician. Staying away from her is in his best interest and his club’s.
When the president of rival MC blindsides and assaults Janie, Beast’s inner-beast is awakened. He cannot fight his attraction for her, no matter how wrong it might be.

The doorbell rang again, and I caught sight of the clock. Thirty-one minutes after the hour? Crap! That had to be Liar and Andrea. I scrambled out of bed and unlocked the door, not registering that there was only one male body on the other side of the glass. 

My eyes widened because I was stunned to see Beast standing on the other side of the door. His hair was damp from a shower, and he was sexy as hell.

“Christ,” he breathed.



“Me?” I touched my face because he was looking at me funny. “Is there something on my face? Dried drool or something?”

He chuckled. “Guess I’ll tell you, ‘cause unlike other bitches this won’t go to your head.” He paused while I frowned at him calling me a bitch. “You’re perfect. All put-together, just shy of Stepford put-together.”

“Just to let you know, this is about to go to my head and make it explode because me and Stepford in the same sentence is never a good thing.”

“Yeah, but with you, there’s warmth, and then first thing in the morning you have porn hair.”

“What?” I shouted.

“Babe, it’s a good thing.” He grabbed my hand and put it on his crotch. “A really good thing since it makes me this hard for you.”

I was never going to bed with wet hair ever again. Ever.

His eyes grew warm as he smiled. “You aren’t struggling.”

My eyebrows furrowed and he thrust his hips, forcing my hand to stroke him over his cargo pants. 

“What do you mean?”

“You’re not trying to jerk your hand away. Does that mean you want to jerk me off?”

My God! He was right. Any other girl would struggle against a man putting her hand on his cock. Well, probably, I mean this was Beast. He wasn’t any man. 

Now I was getting turned on. And that realization made me yank my hand away.

“Fuck. I hate that you’re married. Don’t know if your man is fighting to keep you, but now I see he’s damn sure got good reason to put up a fight.”

My eyes narrowed. “I don’t know what you’re talking about. He’s an asshole and only wants to keep up appearances.”

He openly eye-fucked me, and damn my body, I shivered, complete with my nipples puckering. “You were in my bed I’d fight. ’Course, if you were mine I wouldn’t give you reason to leave. Hell, what I’d give you, it’d be a miracle if you could walk, let alone walk away.”

Two doors slamming from the driveway broke the moment. “Shit! I’m not even dressed. You let Liar and Andrea in while I get some clothes on.”

A shit-eating grin spread on his face. “You’re right. I was too focused on your hair. Hot nightie. I could tell them to come back in an hour.”

I shook my head. “Don’t be an ass. No way am I giving Trent more leverage against me.”

“I’d be the one with the leverage, believe me.”

My eyes bulged. “No offense, but that would only complicate things. It’s not like there’s something between us.”

His face was stony. “Fun is never complicated in my world.”

My face relaxed as melancholy rolled through me. “I don’t live in your world.”

I suspected his regretful expression mirrored mine. “You’re right. You don’t.”

It was probably my imagination, but I would’ve sworn he cut himself off before he could say, “yet.”

During Starfall, magic flooded the Earth and destroyed most technology while humans developed strange new powers. As the scion of a male-dominated clan, Jesse should have risen to become a hero.
One disastrous choice ruins her hopes for the future.
To forget about her life as an assassin, she heads to the dying coasts of Florida. Unfortunately, a chance encounter with a Starfall stone and the Siberian tiger shifter after it thrusts her into the limelight. Escaping Nate’s sights is only the beginning of her woes.
When two dangerous Starfall stones are stolen, it’s up to Jesse to recover them. Should she fail, she’ll only be the first to succumb to the rogue stones’ powers.



Most men hated when I defied them. My opponent waited, intriguing me when he hesitated to force me out of his way so he could take what he wanted. Men liked to think they ruled, and in their opinion, the strongest men got the best women, and that was that.

Wise men realized some women conquered their own mountains and tossed off every man who challenged them.

One day, I’d figure out where I stood in the grand scheme of things. I’d been raised to be a man, a warrior above other men, the strength and pride of my clan. I should have become a man when I had turned ten, but thanks to my stupidity, I had ended up a woman instead.

Remembering pissed me off enough I either needed another beer, a fight, or both.


The bar cleared out, and Petey numbered among those bailing. I arched a brow, shrugged, and reached across the bar to snag myself another beer, careful not to touch the Starfall stone. “When I’m done drinking my beer, I’ll move.”

Within a minute, Oyster Bay emptied, leaving me with the three cloaked figures and a man at the other end of the bar too stupid to run or too brave for his own good. When he spotted me looking in his direction, he lifted his bottle in a salute.

Men were a dime a dozen, but sometimes, a pretty one came around, and my flavor of the month was tall, dark, and handsome enough to remind me there were a few perks to being a woman. He smirked at me, likely anticipating the fireworks from the stone or the brewing fight between me and the three men who wanted it.

I liked his mouth, and my gaze locked on his lips before I managed to force my attention back to my trio of unwanted guests.

Outside, thunder rumbled, rain pattered on the bar’s metal roof, and the storm stirred the ocean’s ire, splashing salt water against my feet.

“Move.” The man took one step forward, and his voice remained emotionless and calm.

“Cheers,” I said, lifting my bottle towards my lone spectator. If he wanted a show, I’d give him one, and when I was finished with the three men determined to invade my personal space, I’d leave him a little memento to remember me by. I scooted my stool back, stepped into the water, and met my adversary’s gaze.

I set my beer down beside the Starfall stone. “You’re not going to let me finish my beer in peace, are you?”

He took another step and leaned forward, his breath hot on my face. “No.”

Walking away would’ve been smart. Leaving the Starfall stone to burst and cause mayhem without me in the general vicinity would have been wise. Instead, I unsheathed my sword and rammed the pommel into his gut.

I smiled and went to work. All I’d leave for him were bruises and his life. He didn’t deserve anything else from me, not even a scar.

Read an excerpt:

This story begins on Monday, June 20, 1983, in Lyman County, Georgia

Chapter 1

Chief Charlie McClung stared at the pale, bloated body of Myron Wagstaff lying next to his own swimming pool. He’d seen enough bodies to know when dead is dead. And Myron was dead. McClung glanced at his wife standing near the diving board at the far end of the pool. Marian’s white tee shirt clung to her body and her wet hair was plastered to her head and neck. Hugging herself, she managed a pitiful grin. Not only was Myron Wagstaff a neighbor and the president of their Homeowners Association, but he was also Marian’s archnemesis. McClung knelt beside Myron, grabbed his thick wrist, and checked for a pulse. His fingers sank into doughy flesh. Myron’s waterlogged polo shirt looked as if it had been spray painted on his belly, now bloated more than normal. While McClung held his fingers in place waiting for a beat, he scanned the area. The patio furniture was jumbled together with the garden hose, snaking between the chairs, and stopping at the spot where Myron lay. That, combined with the fact there weren’t any signs of bruising on Myron, perhaps meant this was an accidental drowning. “Boss?” Sergeant Thayer asked as he stood behind McClung. He shook his head as he moved aside for the paramedics to perform their magic. But McClung realized not even Doctor Frankenstein could reanimate poor Myron. As the emergency team worked on Myron, Charlie hurried toward Marian. “Are you okay?” He kissed her forehead and pulled her into his arms. Marian’s body trembled against his chest. “Thayer! Get Marian a blanket.” The young sergeant ran full blast and quickly returned. “I’m okay just, um, just, um.” Marian fought hard to keep her tears in check. “Here.” Thayer’s breath pounded the back of Marian’s neck as he laid the blanket across her shoulders. Charlie released Marian, secured the blanket then blotted a tissue under her eyes and nose. “Here’s a clean one.” “Love the magical tissues.” A weak chuckle tumbled from Marian as she pulled the blanket tighter. “You’d think I’d be sweating in this June heat.” “Well, it’s not even ten o’clock. It’s cloudy, and you’re soaking wet.” Charlie glanced at her feet. “Where are your shoes?” “They were muddy, so I took them off before I went into Myron’s house to call 9-1-1 after I failed with CPR.” Marian sighed. “I was afraid that if Myron survived, he’d send me a bill to have the muddy floors cleaned.” Pointing at the patio doors, she winced. “My shoes are over there.” “What’s wrong?” Marian massaged her lower back. “I guess I hurt my back getting Myron out of the water. I’ll be okay.” Charlie squeezed her hand. Ever since Marian had the terrifying encounter with the Paper Heart Stalker and fell from a second-floor balcony last year, he worried about her health. When McClung came face to face with the Paper Heart Stalker, Marian almost lost her life to save his but unknowingly sacrificed their unborn child. He crossed over to the diving board and beckoned for her to follow. “Sit down. Here. Back toward me.” She eased down on the hard plank. Charlie’s strong hands ran across her shoulders and down her back. “Does it hurt?” “No, not really.” “I guess nothing’s broken, dislocated, or cracked.” He crossed over the board and sat down. “When I get home tonight, I’ll give you an intense massage once you’ve soaked in a tub of hot Epsom salt water.” “Sounds good.” Marian watched the paramedics work on Myron. The team’s jaws were tight as they knelt over Myron’s body. One paramedic rubbed the back of his neck as he stood in defeat while the other one closed Myron’s eyes and pulled a blanket over his face. “I didn’t think they’d have much luck reviving him. I’d hoped, but…” Marian’s voice trailed, her head heavy as she leaned on Charlie’s shoulder. “You did everything by the book. I still don’t see how you got Myron out of the pool.” Marian sighed. “I did what I had to.” She studied Charlie’s face, then swallowed hard and grimaced. “I tried to revive him. CPR but maybe if—.” “Don’t even go down that path.” Charlie scratched his eyebrow. “Dispatch said you saw a man run from the scene.” She sat up. “Yeah. Do you think he had something to do with this?” “Possibly, but we won’t know for sure until we’ve gathered the facts.” Charlie shrugged. “To me, every death is suspicious. Been fooled before but never again.” A year ago, two weeks after Charlie McClung had moved to Lyman County, he was called to the scene of a fatal shooting, Dianne Pannell. Without an investigation, the then chief of police ruled Dianne’s death a suicide, but Charlie proved it was murder after Dianne’s irritating neighbor, his now-wife, Marian, pressed him to look further into the case. “Yeah.” Marian murmured. Charlie stood. “Could be the guy got spooked when he saw Myron in the pool and ran away.” He held out his hand. “Come with me. The paramedics need to give you a quick check.” “Why? My back isn’t hurting that bad.” His hand cupped her cheek. “Sweetie, please just humor me.” Marian avoided looking at Myron and let her husband guide her to the ambulance. They met officers Willard and Marsh at the gate. Photographer Sam Goldstein wasn’t far behind. “Ma’am, are you okay?” Marsh’s voice quivered, and his eyebrows drew together. Marian looked at him for a moment. “I’m fine. Just a bit damp.” She bit her bottom lip and blinked several times. “Maybe a little shaken.” Both officers were like sons to Marian. A tentative smile eased the furrow between Marsh’s eyes. “Thank goodness.” Willard scratched his head. “Where are your shoes, ma’am?” McClung answered. “They’re outside the patio door. One of you get them for Marian.” “Consider it done, Boss.” Willard took off. “Marsh, I want you and Willard to help Thayer process the scene.” “Yes, Boss.” Willard returned a few minutes later, holding the less-muddy sneakers. His hands were filthy. “Here you go. I cleaned them up the best I could.” “Thank you, Willard.” Marian took the shoes. “No trouble.” “You two. Go assist Thayer.” McClung barked. “Wait.” Marian held up her hand. “I scratched the running guy’s tag number on the sidewalk.” “Marsh go find it. Willard, you report to Thayer.” McClung directed his trusted men. The two young men hurried off on opposite paths. “Sam, how did you know I needed you?” The silver-haired man tapped his temple. “Didn’t take me long to figure you out. You’re a cop that sees murder everywhere.” “But Sam, how did you know to come here?” Marian blurted. Charlie and Sam answered. “Police scanner.” Marian frowned. “Just anybody can have one?” “Yep!” Charlie sighed. “In this case, it’s a good thing but mostly it’s not.” Sam coughed. “I’ll just take a picture or two of that tag number.” “Yeah, do that. Plus, there’s a lot going on behind the house.” Charlie watched the older man trudge down the sidewalk. Camera bags banged against Sam’s body with each step he took. One of the paramedics joined McClung and Marian at the ambulance. “Ma’am don’t fret. There wasn’t a thing you could’ve done for that guy.” The bear of a man shook his head. “I ain’t no coroner, but I’ve been at this job for a long time. He’s been dead too long to be revived.” The reassurance that she wasn’t a factor in Myron’s death didn’t make Marian feel any better. “Mel, do you mind giving my wife a quick once-over to make sure she’s safe to go home?” Charlie stroked Marian’s back as he spoke. “Sure.” Mel removed his latex gloves and put on a fresh pair. He tilted his head toward the rear of the ambulance. “Just sit there.” “Boss.” Thayer called to McClung from the open gate. Charlie looked at Marian. “Go on. Do your job.” Marian kissed her husband’s cheek. He didn’t move from her side. “I’m fine, just a tweaked back. Besides you’re making me nervous watching me like a hawk.” “Boss.” Thayer repeated more urgently. Charlie smiled and gave her a casual salute. “As you wish.” McClung hurried toward Thayer. “Found something?” “I think I figured out what happened.” McClung disappeared behind the fence. ♦♦♦♦♦♦ “What is it, Thayer?” McClung followed him into Myron’s house as he pulled a pair of latex gloves from his pocket. “I was hoping I could go a whole year without having to use these.” “Makes for a mundane job.” Sergeant Thayer said flatly. “Here sir, in the kitchen. There’s a half-empty bottle of whiskey and one glass.” McClung arched an eyebrow as he leaned over to study the bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey. About three fingers of liquid was left inside the bottle, a few drops coated the bottom of the tumbler. He walked to the sink and smelled the drain. No lingering odor of alcohol. Then he carefully picked up the tumbler. “Thayer, flip on the overhead light.” The fluorescent tubes buzzed to life. McClung held up the tumbler to the harsh light. On the rim, was a faint lip print. “Hmm, make sure you dust this for prints and bag it.” He set it back in its original position. Marsh squinted as he entered the kitchen. “Boss, put me to work.” “Where’s Sam?” “Taking pictures of the deceased before they cart him away.” McClung rubbed his earlobe. “Tell Mel to instruct the hospital not to release the body until I say so. I want Jack Jackson to do the autopsy, if he’s available.” He snapped his fingers. “And tell Sam I’ll need him in here when he’s finished.” “Will do.” Marsh headed outside. McClung studied every inch of the kitchen: the floor, inside the cabinets, oven, and refrigerator. He examined everything as he searched for possible clues. There was no hint to what may have led to Myron’s death. “Boss, I don’t think it’s murder.” McClung raised an eyebrow and replied sarcastically, “Yeah? Well then, enlighten me with your hypothesis of poor Wagstaff’s watery demise.” He strolled toward the open patio door and headed for the pool. As Thayer spoke, McClung studied the jumbled furniture. “Myron was drunk, got tangled up in the patio furniture, stumbled around, and then fell into the pool. He was too drunk to get himself out of the water.” McClung pushed out his bottom lip and nodded. “Hm. He was in the shallow end. All he had to do was stand up.” Thayer rubbed the top of his head. “Maybe he hit his head on the bottom. Knocked himself out.” McClung wandered around the pool. He stopped where the garden hose lay beside the pool. The concrete was soaked, and the grass drenched to the point that a small stream had flowed down the incline, out the gate and onto the street. “What do you think Myron was doing with the hose?” Thayer hunched his shoulders. “Topping off the pool?” “Yeah, sounds right.” McClung pointed to the water-logged grass. “The hose had to be on for a long time to have created that miniature creek rolling down the hill and into the street.” “That goes to show I’m right. He was drunk standing here. The hose got tangled in the furniture. He yanked it. Lost his balance. Dropped the hose. Hit his head on the concrete and fell into the pool. Accidental drowning.” Thayer crossed his arms and grinned. McClung pulled on his bottom lip. “Plausible.” Something on the concrete caught his eye. “What does this look like to you?” McClung knelt close to the spot. “It looks like blood. Must be where he hit his head.” “Yeah, and what about this?” McClung touched a hard, yellowish, rectangular-shaped chip, like a half of a Chiclet. He looked around for Sam Goldstein. The EMTs were talking to Sam as he photographed Myron’s body. McClung yelled over his shoulder. “Sam, get over here.” The paramedics began moving Myron’s body. “What do we have there?” Sam held the camera to his eye, snapping pictures as McClung pointed toward the areas. “That appears to be blood.” McClung pointed to the yellowish object. “And that, my friend, doesn’t belong here. Possibly a clue.” Thayer knelt beside McClung. “Yep, could be. It looks like old ivory?” McClung thought the odd chip looked familiar, but the vague memory faded away. Sam zoomed to get a few tight shots of the chip and the blood spatters. McClung glanced at the EMTs. “Thayer, bag it and look for more spatters and anything else in this area. I want a chat with Mel.” “Mel, where’s Marian? Is she all right?” McClung moved out of the way of the paramedics while they loaded Myron onto the stretcher. “She’s fine. Just hurt her back. Understandable.” Mel groaned as they lifted Myron’s body. “Even for me this guy is hefty. I’m surprised your wife got him out of the water. She’s a tiny lady. What 5’3’ and 125 pounds?” McClung snorted as he nodded. “Yep, but she’s stubborn. If she’s got it in her mind to do something, consider it done.” “Is Marian still sitting in the back of the ambulance?” McClung followed the gurney. “No, sir. She’s sittin on the front stoop waitin on you.” Officer Billy Crawford met them inside the gate. McClung couldn’t help but smile at his oldest officer. Crawford was always in a jolly mood. But not this morning. “Boss, sorry it took me so long to get here.” Crawford wore a rare frown. “What’s the matter?” McClung waved the paramedics to go on. Crawford shifted the criminal investigation kit from one hand to the other. “Ah, the missus got news her favorite uncle isn’t doing so good and her dad’s not taking it none too well. If her uncle dies, my father-in-law will be the last one left in his family.” McClung gripped Crawford’s firm shoulder. “I’m sorry to hear that. Are you sure you should be here? Your wife needs you.” “Thanks, but I’m not much help. Best thing for me is to stay out of her way.” “Okay, but don’t be shy about asking for time off. Understand?” “I appreciate that, Boss.” “If there’s anything we can do, don’t hesitate to ask.” He shook his index finger at his officer. “I mean it. Ask. Marian will make sure you’re fed, you got that?” “Yes, Boss. But I saw her sitting out front, and she doesn’t look so good.” McClung’s eyes widened. “What?” “You didn’t know she’s here?” Crawford pulled back his head. “Yeah, but she said she was fine.” McClung patted the officer’s back. “Let me go speak with her. I’ll catch up with you later.” Charlie hurried to find his wife, but stopped a few yards away to observe her. So many questions he needed to ask, but he was worried about her. Marian didn’t need this stress. Not now. Marian looked like a triangular-shaped lump of coal. The dark gray blanket was wound tightly around her body and she was resting her forehead on her knees, which she’d pulled up to her chest. Charlie wondered how she was able to breathe. He sat beside her and rubbed her back. “Sweetie?” Marian’s head popped up. “Hey! I didn’t hear you come up. I must’ve dozed off as I was praying.” “Yeah? Are you sure you’re okay? You don’t look so hot.” Charlie wrapped his arms around her. Marian winced. “You’re such a sweet talker.” Charlie released his embrace. “Sorry.” His fingers massaged her lower back. “That’s okay.” Marian pulled off the blanket and neatly folded it. “I’m tired. I want to lie down. Is it okay for me to walk home, now?” “Nope, it’s at least a mile and a half. I’m driving you home.” She straightened her legs. “Might as well. These sneakers are ruined. Not good for anything but stomping around in the yard.” Marian tucked the thin blanket under her arm. “What about the investigation? Aren’t you going to question me?” “Your well-being is more important to me. Besides, Thayer’s opinion is this is an accidental drowning. My best team is on this. They don’t need me telling them how to do their job. And you can tell me what happened when you feel like it.” “Now?” “Do you honestly want to talk about it now?” Marian whispered. “I need to, but—” “But means later. Tonight?” “Yeah, tonight.” Charlie held her hand as they walked toward the gate. “Let me tell the guys I’m taking you home.” McClung passed the EMTs as he disappeared behind the fence. Marian shuddered as she watched the paramedics load Myron’s body inside the ambulance. “I’ve witnessed this scene too many times in the past year.” *** Excerpt from How Deep is the Darkness: A Charlie McClung Mystery by Mary Anne Edwards.

MAGGIE and her Ladies Auxiliary friends took turns sharing

stories and laughing together around the dinner table at Max’s
Place, their favorite restaurant in town. Maggie yawned,
suddenly quite tired, and decided to leave a little early.
“Hey ladies, I think I’m going to head home if you don’t
mind.” She stated.
“You feel okay, Margaret?” Gladys asked, one of her dear
“I’m starting to feel my age, I guess. Kind of tired tonight.”
“Well, be careful driving home,” Gladys replied.
“I will. I’m so sorry about my blunder earlier tonight.”
“It’s okay! It happens to the best of us, Mags!” Another friend
Maggie stood up from the table, grabbed her purse and
started to walk away, but stopped and turned around. “By the
way Janet, please tell Leo I said hello, okay?” And she walked
Gladys and the ladies all looked at one another with a
puzzled look on their faces, bewildered by her comment.
“Gladys, Janet hasn’t been at this table in over ten years. And
who is Leo?” One of the ladies asked the group.
“Leo was Janet’s first husband, over twenty years ago.”
Gladys replied. Most of the ladies wouldn’t have known that,
except for her and Maggie since they were in the original group.
At that point, Gladys was now quite worried about Maggie’s
state of mind.
“I’m sure she was just tired and a little confused. It happens
more and more at our age, unfortunately.” Helen added, then
changed the topic.
The ladies continued to banter on about this and that after
Maggie left, enjoying their dessert, but after a while Gladys
couldn’t ignore the gnawing feeling in the pit of her stomach
that something wasn’t right.
“I’m going to step outside and make sure Maggie made it to
her car, ladies. I’ll be right back.” Gladys announced. Once
outside, she looked down both streets to ensure Maggie had left.
As she feared however, she spotted Maggie’s car parked on the
adjacent street. She walked over to the car and put her hand on
the hood. Cold. She had never made it to the car, and Maggie
was nowhere in sight.
