About Second Skin – Katy has finally broken free from her activist parents and the infamous Chandler name. Determined to excel at her first real job, she has pitched an idea to her editor at Single Ladies magazine and is now in the Colorado Rockies camping alone. It’s nature meets technology, the truly modern way to vacation without the help of a man. YouTube, camping blogs, “Survivor,” “Naked and Afraid”–she’s studied them all and can not only pitch a tent all by herself, but make fire out of practically nothing. Katy intends to document everything with photos and videos and then write the best article her editor has ever read. But her notorious dad has other plans, the reason she’s greeted by a bodyguard the moment she sets foot in the mountains. Tall, dark, and dedicated, Tyler is also a member of the supernatural community–a shapeshifter as determined to be her second skin as she is determined to shed him

About The Ghost of Christmas Never – Libby has devoted her life to Mia ever since their parents died. Now Mia’s marriage to Rob threatens all Libby’s big plans for little sis, making it very hard to be happy for the couple. So far, Jake, big brother of the groom, has ignored Libby’s pleas for help derailing the wedding train. In fact, he’s actually footing the bill for their siblings’ last-minute Christmas nuptials. And though Jake is good looking, smart, and funny, Libby is determined not to like him. When a winter whiteout results in a lodging crunch, Jake volunteers to share a room with Libby, who can’t say no without making a scene. It’s only when they’re alone that she learns he has an ulterior motive for choosing this particular Ozark Mountain hotel for the honeymoon. Jake, host of a paranormal television show, hopes they’ll be visited by the ghost supposedly haunting the old building. He’s even focusing his video camera toward the bed he has graciously turned over to Libby. A ghost? Really? This cinches it. The guy is not only self-serving, he’s clearly bonkers. But sometimes things aren’t what they seem. A wedding that closes one door might open several others. And the guy who comes off as a jerk? Well, he could actually be kind of cool. As for the ghost Libby doesn’t believe in…maybe he’s only dropping by to nudge her in the right direction.

 

Honeymoon  2014 2nd  Titaniumconcept

About The Honeymoon Hoax – Six years as a divorce lawyer have convinced Sam Knight that wedded bliss and happily ever after are merely myths he wants no part in perpetuating. So when he discovers his Arkansas mountain fishing resort has been converted to a honeymoon hideaway, he storms into Wildwood, demanding an explanation from manager Libby Turner. Libby knows exactly how to show Sam the value of his remodeled investment. She will prove to this marriage Scrooge that love isn’t a one-way ticket to divorce court. But with his rugged good looks and stubbornness, Sam is intimidating and more man than she’s ever encountered. Can a hopeless romantic persuade a determined realist that sometimes fairy tales really do come true?

About Titanium – Riley McConnell, 19, loves living in San Antonio while she attends the University of Texas. Her major: public health.  Although grateful that her aunt and uncle took her in when her mother died, she welcomes the break from them and her three young cousins. How she wishes she could forget advertising for a housemate to share the rent. But her part-time job selling tacos in a mall food court just isn’t cutting it. Zander Bennett, 23, is also separated from his family by choice. A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, he lives in a trailer park near Brook Army Medical Center where he receives care for injuries sustained in Afghanistan.  Zander is a physical and emotional wreck, and the psychic gift that was an asset overseas is now as useless as his military training. Or so he thinks, until he spots a zombie in the mall food court on Halloween night. To most, the guy with the creepy face paint is just another costumed shopper among hundreds. But Zander knows recon when he sees it, and this dude is definitely sizing up the area as well as the pretty brunette bagging tacos. Even weirder, he has buddies doing the same. Zander’s skin actually crawls, a feeling not experienced since his return to the states. Should he warn the girl? Or is his paranoia just another symptom of his troubled state of mind?

About In Wildest Dreams – Ellie Boone bakes novelty cakes for a living. Kit Macchiano is the handsome photographer who lives down the hall. They occasionally have lunch together, but never without her best friend and other neighbor, Hanna. Both women are fascinated by Kit, whose bachelor lifestyle contrasts sharply with their where-are-all-the-good-men desperation.  Ellie never tells Kit that her parents hunt mythical monsters for a living and host their own cable television series. But they do, and they’re in a jam, with the threat of cancellation hanging over their heads. For that reason, Ellie’s mom begs her to accompany them on a hunt for the Cherufe, a legendary Chilean cave monster. Ellie, who hasn’t traveled with them getting lost in a cave at age six, reluctantly agrees, but only if Hanna can tag along. Ellie tries to convince herself that she can overcome the lingering trauma of her childhood misadventure. For one thing, her resulting nightmares rarely recur these days, thanks to a male presence—a personal dream catcher–her subconscious inserted into a paraticularly bad dream years ago. For another, she’ll have sweet, funny Hanna around for moral support. But a last-minute emergency sidetracks her friend. And though Kit volunteers to step in for Hanna, Ellie isn’t thrilled and only agrees out of desperation.  To make matters even more awkward, her parent can’t be talked out of their assumption that the two of them are a couple. It’s only when Kit and a frightened Ellie are deep inside the cave looking for the Cherufe that déjà vu slams her. She’s suddenly sure they know each other way better than she originally thought. In fact, it almost feels as if Kit has helped her through this ordeal before. But how? Her dream catcher is just a figment…isn’t he?

About Ivy’s Eyes – Ivy Warren, owner of pagan supply shop Something’s Brewing, is a white witch with a secret power—the ability to read a soul by gazing into someone’s eyes. Sometimes her power is wonderful; sometimes it’s not. When Ember, a witch with nominal powers, tries to buy a love potion, Ivy won’t sell it to her and not because she has seen Ember’s soul. No man should be tricked into loving a woman. A glimpse of Ember and an unknown male on the sidewalk later that day pokes Ivy’s conscience. Should she warn the handsome stranger that Ember is after him?
Amos “Hutch” Hutchinson is the new pharmacist in town. He and Ivy meet when she picks up a prescription for her aunt. They wind up flirting with each other and making a coffee date, but she never shows up. He decides she didn’t like him as much as he liked her.
What Hutch doesn’t know is that Ivy missed their date because she was drugged. Even worse, her love potions were stolen. Now she has no ethical choice but to knock on his door, apologize for being a no show, and ask if Ember has offered him a drink. But will a down-to-earth chemist ever believe her crazy story? And what if it’s already too late to save him?
