Corporate Blues -
On Sale 3/31 & 4/1 for $0.99
Blurb –
Madison Renault is a client service manager and single mom living in New Jersey. Raleigh St. James is the new CEO of an engineering firm in Connecticut, and Madison’s biggest client. Madison starts to receive threats from a disgruntled former employee, and Raleigh uncovers a web of corruption, targeting businesses up and down the East coast, including his own. Now their already complicated lives are being invaded by bodyguards, local police, and the FBI. Will their budding, long distance, relationship survive the stress?

Excerpt –
Madi took a sip of her wine. “How do you do it?” she asked him.
“Do what exactly?”
Madi spread her hands, “This. Your job. Risk your life to protect people. How do you do it? Or perhaps a better question would be, why do you do it? You don’t even know me, yet you would die to protect me. How is my life worth so much more than yours?”
Dawn looked baffled but realization dawned on Steve, “Saw your bodyguard in action didn’t you?” Madi nodded. Steve took her hand, led her to the table and gently nudged her to sit. “Look Madi, you can ask anyone in law enforcement, it’s not a profession we choose, it chooses us. Almost like it is hardwired into our DNA, ‘to serve and protect’ isn’t just a motto, it’s what we live, what we breathe, with or without our uniform. It’s just what we are. It would be like telling a singer she couldn’t sing, or a musician he couldn’t play, or a writer she couldn’t write, yet they’d each find a way, because it is who they are.”
“But James has a wife and two young kids.”
“Stop.” Steve reproved. “And you only have one, and Dawn would take care of him and love him if you were gone. Is that what you were going to say?” She didn’t answer, but her silence spoke volumes. “If you start thinking like that, you will drive yourself crazy. If James wasn’t assigned to you, he would be assigned to someone else, doing for them exactly what he is doing for you. If you want to protect him, then don’t give him a hard time, do exactly what he says, when he says it, so he can focus on his job and not have to worry if you’re a wild card in the scenario.” Steve pressed her hand.
“I’ll try.” Madi promised.

Immortal Relations, Love and War Book 2

Title: “Immortal Relations, Love and War” book #2 of the current three part series.
Genre Paranormal-Romance
Author G. D. Ogan
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Excerpt from “Immortal Relations, Love and War”:
It was a short flight from Moscow to St. Petersburg. There our party was met by two limousines and whisked along to the historic Hermitage Museum. Arriving, it looked to me like the whole world was there. I didn’t know why President Kolukov had asked me to wear the Russian General’s Uniform he gave me, but I wanted to humor my good friend. We exited the limousine onto a red velvet carpet that had wide gold piping down each side and which looked to be almost 400 meters long. I thought it odd that President Kolukov had me stand to his left and next to him, when Stephan was senior in rank to my uniform. When we got to the head of the carpet, we turned. Stephan and Adam moving behind us, I looked up and turning the corner onto the same red carpet we had just traveled was someone I would recognize anywhere, under any circumstances. It was Magdalena, on the arm of Roger, our doctor.
At first I was confused, but when I saw the dress she wore, an exact copy of her hand made blue dress, only in brilliant white and then heard the music, I realized what was happening; Magdalena and I were getting married! My friends had somehow arranged all this without even a hint that I picked up on. I had already glanced at some of those on either side of the isle and thought I recognized some political figures from various countries.
 As Magdalena was escorted slowly forward, I was unable to look anywhere else; she was the only thing that existed in my universe. When she got close, I noticed she had a ribbon with a gold star hanging from it pinned over her left breast. I’d seen a similar medal, back when it was called “Hero of the Soviet Union,” but this one had the double eagle of the Russian Federation. Only an old “war horse” like me would notice that when the woman he loved stood in front of him!

An Eastern Orthodox Priest spoke the vows, translated into English for me. Magdalena didn’t need a translator as she spoke several languages, Russian being one of them. We both answered “I do” and “I will,” then I was asked to put the ring on Magdalena’s finger – I started to panic, but Kolukov stepped forward and handed me a ring. My eyes bulged when I looked at it as it must have been five carats of a Red Ruby mounted in Gold! He said it's just a little bobble courtesy of the Russian people and the Hermitage. I placed it on the finger of my bride, we were officially married and we kissed.

Maggie read my thought and on impulse we both turned and kissed Kolukov, each of us on one side of his face.

Blurb: Immortal Relations, Love and War amps up the action of the first book to a fever pitch. The greedy leaders of Communist China plan to capture the oil, gold and mineral rich fields of Siberia by decapitating the Russian Federations’ Government as a prelude to invasion. Minions of rich OPEC Sheiks seek to stem the flow of Russian Oil so OPEC can raise prices to destroy the economies of the West. They plan to use a “dirty bomb” to destroy the main pumping station and have the radiation make the oil fields unusable.
The radiation containment at at Chernobyl is failing the release of poisonous radiation could happen at any time. Worse, some scientists predict the damaged nuclear reactor at Fukushima, Japan could collapse and cause a potential Extinction Level Event! Who, or what, can be called upon to save civilization and mankind and what impact will the vampire covens experience? Could potentially catastrophic events turn out to offer unforeseen opportunities?

Rose of Crimson


Life had its strange ways, presenting him with a chance to love her as he should’ve loved her centuries ago
He must learn how to bear a lonely life. As Kate had said, what kind of life could he give her? Of course, she’d referred to Phantom and Christine, but Kate might as well have spoken of him and her. Yes, he could provide for her, but not give her his heart, and love without heart just wasn’t love.
A corner of clear plastic case sticking out of the pink wrapping on the passenger seat caught his eye. Kate had the CD in her hand when she left the car. She’d put the soundtrack in her purse. How had the case found its way back to the car? Perhaps she left it behind to make sure he would return it. No, she wouldn’t do such a deceitful thing. She had promised she believed him when he’d said he would see her again. He placed the CD inside the glove compartment.
He opened the door and set one foot on the concrete. Emina’s ethereal whisper stopped him from exiting his car.
The CD is a guarantee you’ll pay Kate a visit.
His heart ceased for a few beats, pain stabbed at his chest. “Emina, my dove. You must not interfere.”
You promised me, Matthias.’ Scolding in her tone made her voice louder.
He sank against the backrest. How could he keep his vow when he spent every moment thinking of what life might’ve been had she lived? “That is one promise that will have to go unfulfilled. I can never love another.”
I will not cross over until you fulfill my dying wish. And there’s a matter of karmic debt you created during your time with servant Kate. It must be repaid with this Kate. The imbalance in your life goes back over three centuries.
He raked his fingers through his hair. Karmic debt, the concept of compensating for the ill treatment of an essence during its past life had to be repaid to the reincarnated soul was not new. Emina was right. Her wish was selfless. She had thought of him and their children, wanting him to find someone who’d love them and who they’d love in return, and reclaim the balance in his life.
Open your heart and you’ll see there’s room for love. Kate is not just another woman. She loves you to a fault.’
“This Kate is not the same woman I love—” He clamped his mouth shut before his tongue could complete the word. Preposterous to think he had loved a servant. “You saw me kiss her in the car?” Blood rushed to his head. What would she think of him?

You should be ashamed for allowing your stubbornness to get the best of you. Why are you turning your back on her, on love?’ Her whisper faded, and he strained to hear the last few words.
“I’m not stubborn. It’s a sense of propriety. Stay with me, love. Let me explain. Don’t leave.” Desperation edged his voice and closed his throat. ‘With you gone, I fear the beast is stirring inside me, he confessed, despite his qualms. By not admitting the fact he hung onto a false hope that he imagined the urges and the voice every time he succumbed to desire for Kate.
Warmth spread over his chest. Emina’s whisper echoed in his mind. ‘The beast is part of you, has been for centuries. Without it, you wouldn’t be where you are today. Once you allow yourself to love Kate, the entity residing in you will be placated.
Her voice faded. He waited. Had she gone or chosen to give him her famous silent treatment?


Kate Rokov’s grades are plummeting. She needs to get the voice out of her head, or she will flunk her finals. Matthias Zrin, a three centuries old immortal, born into an aristocratic family as Miles Rušinić, is enthralled with Kate. It is his voice preventing her from sleeping and her ignorance is testing his limits. He wants her to write down his story to settle his late wife’s earthbound spirit. His tragic love story has become Kate’s obsession since fifth grade during her summer trip to Rušinić Castle. Their coming together settles the old spirit and breaks an ancient curse and, in doing so, a flame spanning over three centuries reignites and burns with wild desire. In this tale of two life times and desire versus emotional need, both know some dreams will have to wait for the right time, but the magic between them is impossible to withstand.

Samantha Dixon rescues a wounded wolf shifter in the woods near her home … and unwittingly gets drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a murderer. Callum Blake is on the trail of an evil man who would be king of all wolf kind, no matter the cost … it’s up to Callum to stop him. How can Callum fulfill his duty to protect his pack and save the woman who is destined to be his mate?


“Samantha Dixon. What’s yours?”

“Callum Blake.”

He concentrated on Samantha. He’d never seen a woman as gorgeous as she. Her howl stated she was in search of mate, but surely a woman as beautiful as she would have suitors falling over themselves to have her. No male wolf in his right mind would pass up someone like her.

“Have you been mated before?” he asked in a subtle attempt to find out about her past or present relationship. All he wanted to really know was if he had competition.

“I was but he died,” she said softly. “A casualty of the war between us and a neighboring pack.”
She bit her lip and wiped the corners of her eyes.

“I’m sorry for your loss.” His heart went out for her. Losing someone you love was rough and for it to be a mate made it even harder. Shifters when they mated were bound together by a special bond, and when it broke because of the other’s death it was like losing half of their soul. He never had that type of connection before, still, he could imagine the type of pain such a loss would inflict on the surviving mate.

She stood and began to straighten up the bed. “Not half as sorry as I am.”

“I don’t understand,” he said.

“If you don’t mind, I’d rather not talk about it.”

“Please forgive my intrusion. I’m just trying to express my gratitude.”

She smiled weakly. “I know. I’m sorry if I sounded snippy. It’s just that things have been rough lately and I’ve been stressed.” She waved her hand as she turned to leave. “That’s not important right now. You need to get well.”

“Please don’t go.” Just having her near soothed him. She was cute, feminine, and wore a timid expression that hinted at the suffering she had endured. Even though he had only known her for a short time, he already wanted to be her shield, protecting her from any harm that would come her way. He wanted to hold her in his arms and feel her body against his. Something in her challenged him to be more than just a warrior. Ever since her howl in the night, his soul had been on fire for her.

There are three reasons I failed. Not enough training. Not enough training. And not enough training. [Haruki Murakami, writer, and runner]
Out of all disciplines, all the sport we have available, a marathon seems to be a very special race; not simply because of the length and the stamina required to ‘go the distance’ but also because it has become an incredibly popular distance for runners.
A marathon: the queen of all disciplines.

Book Four – Lana Malloy Paranormal Mystery Series

Lana Malloy and Tony Calabria are ready for a much needed vacation. The first time they met, they’d talked about taking a cruise together but have never had the chance, so they decide to take a Christmas Cruise.
As Lana boards the cruise ship, she has an eerie feeling of death surrounding them. She ignores it at first thinking it’s her fear of the large ship since this was her first cruise. The first night she has a vision of one woman’s rape and murder. It’s not long before she is confronted by the spirits of other young women who had also been raped and then murdered. Now it’s up to her to find their murderer, someone who could be sailing with them. Can she help these women find the justice they deserve?
Available now in ebook through Amazon, 24SymbolsBarnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Page Foundry, and Scribd.

Chapter One

As she neared the ship, her legs became heavier, hindering her movement. Dread filled her heart and she wondered if it was an omen that the trip would be plagued with sickness or could it possibly be a doomed ship that would sink into the vast ocean. “Something’s wrong,” she said, exhaling.
Tony placed a hand around her arm to lead her onto the ship. His blue eyes pleaded with her. “Come on. There’s nothing to be afraid of.”
He pulled harder but Lana planted her feet firmly, refusing to move. “I’m not afraid. It’s a feeling, an omen, that something's wrong. Definitely wrong." But as suddenly as the dark cloud had descended upon her, it was gone—a heavy burden lifted from her shoulders. Perhaps the foreboding was her fear of the large vessel, of being in the middle of the sea without any land in sight. She took in a deep breath to steady her nerves, determined she wouldn't go there.
Tony frowned with apparent concern. “You okay? Should I cancel the trip?”
She forced a smile. “No. I’m fine now. Besides, it’s too late to get your money back. I can do this.”
“I don’t care about the money. I just want you to feel safe. I’ve done this many times, although, it’s been a while and I can assure you it'll be okay.” He wrapped an arm around her and pulled her to him, and she laid her head onto his shoulder.
She snuggled deeply into the curve of his neck and placed a light kiss on his jawbone. “I trust you. I don’t know what happened. A deep-seeded dread came over me and all of a sudden I couldn't move.”
“Where did it come from?” he asked, cradling her head to his chest as she turned in his arms.
“I don’t know. But as suddenly as my imagination went wild, it stopped. At first, I thought it was a sign that we shouldn’t go, and now I feel an urgency to board, like something is beckoning to me, like someone needs my help.”
“Will there ever be a trip where someone doesn’t need your help?” he asked with irritation but continued to strum her long brown hair.
“Please, Tony, don’t be like that. We’ve been married over a year. By now you should understand that I have no choice. It’s a calling and if there was anyone else to do it, I would step aside and let them have at it.”
His frown turned to a smile. “I’m sorry. I know. It’s just . . . I don’t know. I guess I’m just hardheaded sometimes. I’d hoped this would be one trip taken without any ghost drama. I should’ve known better.”
“You’re normally so understanding about my ghost drama,” she said, mimicking him. “What’s with you today?”
He shook his head as if trying to clear it from an unwanted thought. “I sense something sinister myself. I’ve never felt this before now. Could your gift be rubbing off on me?” True concern spread across his face.
Available now in ebook through Amazon, 24SymbolsBarnes & Noble, Kobo, iTunes, Page Foundry, and Scribd.

Other Books Available in the Series

If she succeeds, they’ll spend eternity together; if she can’t, they’ll be stuck as Haunted Hearts. With the help of the ghosts and a new love interest, she is able to find the murderer.
In book two, GET OUT OR DIE, the success of Lana’s first case has spread throughout the local Charleston area and her business is booming. At one pro-bono job, Lana helps a widow communicate with her late husband where she learns of a frightening new ability—an ability that could give the next spirit, an angry ghost, the upper hand if she’s not careful.
In book three, THE WEDDING CRASHER, Lana is on her honeymoon in Gatlinburg, Tennessee when she learns that a reoccurring vision about an abducted woman took place in nearby Knoxville. This case takes her hiking up mountainsides and trekking through rough terrain to find a madman before he can harm this young woman.

Blurb for IT Exec’s Baby

Brie Sullivan has a new baby girl and there are a million things to do, but Brie doesn’t have the energy to keep up. Why? She’s still grieving for her husband and suffering from baby blues, but she won’t let that stop her. She’s come up with the answer--find a new husband to be the father of her kids.
Jason Clark has been doing everything he can to help Brie. He loves her but can he accept her proposal of marriage knowing she’s not thinking clearly about the future?

Comments from Reviews for IT Exec’s Baby (2nd book of the Executive Wives Club series)

“IT Exec’s Baby is almost a love story in reverse. The marriage comes first, then the sex, and finally the love - at least from Brie's point of view. It is tender and poignant at times, and full of strong descriptive passages.”

“What I love about series books. Every book gives you more about the characters that you've fallen in love with during the first book.”

“IT Exec’s Baby is a riveting story of a woman with numerous problems.”

Jason settled into the rocker. A slight whimper escaped from the baby, he quickly fed the bottle back into her daughter's mouth.
“Yes, but at least I don’t have to pick them up. I'm in a carpool with another mother down the street.” Brie fluffed her pillow and crawled into bed. The soft cushion of the mattress cupping her body, she melted against the sheets. Peace teased her mind at the luxury of not having to jump up again in two seconds.
“So you've been able to get some rest during the day?”
“No, that's when I try to get everything else done.” Brie reviewed the chores she hadn't accomplished today. Laundry—half done. Dishwasher—still not unloaded. Formula—damn she only had two bottles left.
“Why? What can't wait?” Jason’s question made it sound like she didn't have two other children to take care of.
“Well, there are meals to fix, which reminds me, I have to make a run to the grocery store tomorrow.” She quickly glanced at the night stand to see if there was any paper available. She better make a list.
“Don’t worry about it now. Just try to get some sleep.” The soothing tone of his voice lulling her senses, she closed her eyes.
Visions of Eric floated through her thoughts...him getting up at night, bringing the baby back to her, his help in the evening with the chores, his steady presence when she was too exhausted to go on. “I need a second set of hands.”
An idea popped into her head. The perfect solution. She just needed to get married.
Forcing her eyes open, she rolled to her side and stared at the man holding her daughter. He wasn’t married and didn't mind her kids. If they could join forces, all would be good.
Excited by the possibility, she sat, the covers falling to her waist. “That's it. I need a husband.” Lifting her voice, she stared into a pair of sexy brown eyes. “Jason, will you marry me?”

#Authorexchange: Elaine Cantrell

Fortuna by Elaine Cantrell


Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new business, Aimee’s life is anything but dull.

Excerpt: Rocky and Aimee participate in a wrestling match.

As they appeared in the doorway leading into the arena, speakers blasted Rocky’s theme song as the announcer roared, “Ladies and gentlemen, Rocky Stone is in the building!”
Spotlights blinded Aimee when they hit her. Rocky gave her a masterful kiss as dry ice sent fog roiling around them. With Rocky striding out in front, she and Thin Lips Rich followed, waving to the crowd and clapping the entire time. Rich spread the ropes apart for her and Rocky to enter the ring.
She strutted around, throwing kisses and motioning for the audience to stand up. The crowd went crazy when a wild swirl of bagpipe music filled the arena. They loved Rocky’s show. Clapping in unison, they cheered, “Rock-y. Rock-y. Rock-y.”
With the focus off her, Aimee relaxed a little. Thank goodness nobody’s staring at me now. I hate the outfits Rocky wants me to wear. ‘Your clothes are a part of my stage personality,’ he said. He wants me to look like a party girl.
She glared at the dress. It was made of spandex covered in electric blue sequins and was so short it was dangerous to sit down. Not only that, her boobs would probably fall out of the bodice any time now. The horrible dress had been designed to push up the assets.
Cade McCoy, whose hair was a greasy-looking, dirty blonde that reached his shoulders, threw off his hat and black leather vest and shouted something to Rocky, who ignored him. The barrage of noise intensified as Cade flexed his muscles at the screaming fans. Aimee clapped her hands to her ears to protect them even though it would annoy Rich. She’d be deaf before this debacle finally ended.
Her part was finished for the moment. She glared at Cade, kissed Rocky, and took Rich’s arm as he escorted her from the ring, taking care not to catch her stiletto heels in the ropes. The heels had blue sequins on them too.
The next fifteen minutes were pure purgatory. She held her breath when Cade put Rocky in a headlock and punched his face. He released Rocky and gave him a kick in the butt that sent him sprawling. Rocky seemed dazed by the punches.
Before he could get to his feet, Cade slipped under the bottom rope and shoved one of the timekeepers from his chair. He grabbed the chair and took it into the ring with him. As the crowd roared and screamed, he smashed Rocky from behind with the chair.
Don’t panic. Don’t panic. Don’t panic.
Cade paraded around the ring, jeering at the audience and gloating over Rocky’s fall. Rocky should have gotten to his feet by now, but he hadn’t moved a muscle. Cade strutted across the ring and kicked his leg. Hard. Rocky didn’t move.

Aimee didn’t realize she had gotten to her feet and was moving until she bumped into the ring. “Rocky, get up,” she screamed, her voice reverberating around the now strangely silent arena.
The referee hustled over to Rocky. He took the precaution of motioning Cade back, even though Cade had moved away and wasn’t even close to Rocky. Bending over, he touched Rocky’s shoulder and said something Aimee couldn’t hear. He barked an order to the timekeeper, who picked up a radio.
Two paramedics, exuding competence and authority, rushed to the ring with a stretcher. They put Rocky in a neck brace and carefully loaded him onto the stretcher. As they trotted out of the arena, Rocky’s arm fell from where it lay on his chest. It looked so loose and floppy that Aimee screamed again. She ran behind the paramedics with tears and mascara streaming down her cheeks.
