Author: Susan Rae
Description: Love makes your heart race, but passion can kill.

Three strong, captivating women.

Three intense, driven men.

One family devoted to justice.

Come journey with the DeLuca Family from the tumultuous streets of Chicago to the majestic peak of Glacier National Park in these three intriguing full-length novels loaded with passion, suspense…and danger.

…She recognized him instantly. There was no mistaking the identity of the man who stood in
the entrance to the ballroom, nametag in hand, as if he had just arrived. She stood, motionless, 
staring, unaware of the murmurs of uneasiness arising from the gathering. She watched, 
mesmerized, as his lips curved into that slow, Mona-Lisa smile of his and his chin lifted in 
acknowledgment of her awareness of him. Although quite a distance away, Elizabeth could 
easily make out the slight cleft in his chin, the sexy, firm line of his jaw—and those deep set 
eyes which she knew were the most amazing shade of midnight blue…
  Later that night
Elizabeth pushed the door open and stepped inside. The glow from the streetlights spilled in 
through the lace curtains…It caught her eye as it danced eerily with the tree shadows upon the 
ceiling. Turning her gaze to the right, down the dark hallway, she spotted a sliver of light coming 
from the bathroom.
…She flicked on the light, aware of the click of the apartment door as it closed behind her…a 
quick scan of the living room revealed Julie’s evening gown draped across the sofa, the plastic 
dry-cleaning bag still covering it.
She glanced to the left where Allison’s door stood ajar. Sensing nothing there, she turned 
toward the hallway, debating whether to continue on or call the police. Now she was really being 
paranoid… Julie probably just changed her mind about attending the banquet, or—her husband 
had shown up.
She set her briefcase down, took her cell phone out of her evening bag, just in case, then 
started down the hallway. At the bathroom, she paused. Glancing around the partially opened 
door, she discovered Julie’s makeup scattered on the counter along with her own toiletries. A 
damp towel lay on the floor. She pushed the door open further, but the bathroom was clearly 
She took another step toward the bedroom, then stopped as a dark spot on the beige carpet 
caught her eye. Bending down, she stretched her fingers out to touch it. The familiar texture of 
the moisture that wicked against her fingertips left her feeling somewhat dazed. She turned her 
fingers to the light, although her mind already knew what her eyes would tell her. The sticky 
substance was blood—spent blood—already drying with time.
<i>Outside the apartment—</i>
…as the officers started up the staircase, two steps at a time with Drake at their heels, Sal 
shouted over his shoulder, “Thirty-two-year-old woman—multiple stab wounds.”
Drake’s steps faltered. A cold sweat iced his back and he was sure his heart stopped, if only for 
a second…A muffled shout sounded from inside.
“In Here! Hurry!”
Elizabeth’s voice? Drake couldn’t tell… Leading with his weapon, he shoved through the door…
“In here!” the woman cried from around the next doorway. This time he was sure it was 
He paused to peer around the corner and scan the room. He nodded to the cop who raced 
passed him and checked out the closet. Finally, he allowed himself to look down toward her 
His stomach turned at the ghastly sight that met his eyes.
“Elizabeth…” he breathed.

What the critics are saying about Susan Rae’s books:

Heartbeats: “A terrific tale of romantic intrigue, with characters who are intelligent, skilled professionals and to whom we can easily relate.”— Marilyn Weigel, RTM

“…this romance, thriller was something that took hold of your heart as you read.” —Beth Cutwright, Beth Art From The Heart

TRUE blue 
“The writing was terrific and the plot was intriguing and suspenseful. Rae masterfully deceives the reader intothinking that she knows who-dunnit but the reader will be deliciously surprised at the end.” —Cindi, Mammasez

Susan grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from 
Columbia College, Missouri with an emphasis in creative writing.She penned her first 
melodrama in fifth grade for a Girl Scout Drama badge. Complete with hero, heroine, and 
dastardly villain, it wasn’t so very different, really, than the romantic suspense she writes now.
“I love writing romantic suspense because it allows me to combine a sexy, passionate love story 
with a gritty suspense tale—in my opinion, the best of both worlds.It also allows me to express 
my appreciation for the outdoors in the setting that I recreate on the page.”

When Supernatural Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a.
Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime, it's obvious the grotesquely
damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than
a simple hit and run; and she vows to catch the killer. Using her innate sixth
sense, Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon
discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire that was instrumental in
the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the
boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.
Blue and her clever wolf Varg follow a trail that starts at the Cock and Bull
Tap and leads all through the town of Crimson Hollow. Between being
sidelined by a stalker who sticks to the shadows and chasing a suspect
who vanishes in thin air, the case is getting complicated. If that isn't
enough, Dark Vampire activity hits a record high, and hate crimes are
increasing. However, it's Blue’s growing feelings for Jack Tanner, her sexy
Daylight Vampire boss, that just might undo her.
While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, it seems someone
else is conducting a search of their own. Who will find whom first?
Danger lurks in every corner, and Blue needs all her focus in this
increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.

A Secret for Christmas: http://amzn.com/B00P74H9EY

Nyema Norton is a child psychologist, a mother, a sister, a friend, amongst other things. She has always
been the type to be there to listen if you needed it or give sage advice that helped others to improve
upon their lives. She has known great loss. First, her sister, then the father of her child. As such, she has
chosen to guard her heart against anyone outside of her family and inner circle of friends. Nyema is
perceived as the one that has it all together.
James Kenyon, architect, has always been the man with no desire to have a wife and/or family of his
own. He applauds his best friend for stepping out and finding love, but he wants no parts of it. James
had decided to assist a friend with having a child. A simple act of kindness, a freak accident and one
phone call has his world spinning. What he doesn’t count on is a loss greater than one he ever thought
to endure, a woman that changes his outlook and that very same woman possibly being the missing key
to his healing. It helps that she has a precocious yet adorable kid, ta boot.
What will happen when the two meet as counselor and patient? Will James be the breath of fresh air
that she needs in order to be able to truly breathe? Will Nyema be the woman to cause him to be willing
to commit to something, someone other than his company and employees?
The Norton Sisters Series is a series about six sisters that share the same last name, but are six entirely
different women. The sisters by age ranking: Zoie, Wynter, Rayna, Nyema, Lynnia and Chyra are there
for each other, always. They follow their own little "Norton Code": "In the end, family means everything
and your sisters hold you up. No matter what may come."

Interview with a werewolf…
Character interview of Clay from Hope(less): Book One of the Judgement of the Six, by author MelissaHaag

A knock sounds at the door.  Melissa scrambles to tuck the latest novel she’s reading under a sofa
cushion and then runs to answer the door.  Melissa peeks out the door and finds a scruffy looking man
staring back.  The afternoon interviewee has arrived.  His longish hair partially covers his eyes, and a
beard covers his face.  Despite his dubious appearance, she opens the door with a smile.
Melissa:  Hi!  Come on in.  **steps aside and motions Clay in.**
Clay nods in greeting and enters.
Melissa:  Please have a seat.  **motions Clay to sit and takes a seat across from him in her slightly dusty
living room.**
Melissa:  I was so excited you agreed to this interview.  After finishing Hope(less), I have so many
questions for you.  Can I get you anything to drink before we start?
Clay declines with a shake of his head.
Melissa:  ** leans back into her chair and picks up a pad of paper to take notes.**  Tell me, what did you
think of Gabby when you first saw her?
Clay smiles slightly.  His whisker’s twitch.
Clay:  Pretty.
Melissa waits for a few seconds for Clay to say more, clears her throat, then moves on when he remains
Melissa:  What exactly happened that night you brought her back to the compound?  I’m really curious
about the leaves in her hair.
Clay shifts uncomfortably and shrugs.
Clay:  Distraction.
Melissa:  **blinks at his taciturn response.**  Let’s talk about your favorite color.  Why pink?
Clay:  **grins wickedly and shrugs.**  Bikini.
Melissa:  Oh?  **leans forward anticipating more detail, but is left waiting.  Stifling a groan of
frustration, moves on to the next question.**  What made you decide to get a job from Dale?
Clay:  **gives a full grin, showing teeth.  His eyes crinkle at the corners.**  Opportunity.
Melissa:  **the sexy smile evokes memories of several scenes from Hope(less).  Melissa shakes herself,
and barely avoids sighing in a dreamy fashion.**  What did you think of Gabby’s attempts to get rid of
Clay:  **a quick laugh escapes him.**  Expected.
Melissa:  **looks down at the blank note paper and scowls briefly before returning her focus to Clay.**  I
don’t want to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t read Hope(less), but tell me… how do you feel
about how the book ended?
Clay:  **the heart-melting smile returns.**  Satisfied.
Melissa:  **desperate for something to put to paper, asks a simple yes or no question.**  Have you
shaved for Gabby yet?
Clay shrugs enigmatically.
Melissa:  Do you have any insight what will happen in the next installment of the series?
Clay shakes his head.
Melissa:  Will we learn anything more about Gabby’s abilities?
Clay shrugs.
Melissa:  **tries a different approach.**  Now that Hope(less) is finished, what do you plan to do?
Clay:  Wait.
Melissa:  **makes a show of looking at her watch.**  Well, look at the time!  **Stands and extends
hand.**  I appreciate your time and your succinct answers.  **leads Clay to the door.**
Clay nods and exits.
Melissa returns to the couch, digs out her Novel where the men actually speak in complete sentences,
and escapes into another world.
Discover a riveting world of werewolves and young women with unexplained abilities, in Hope(less).
In a world filled with people, Gabby is uniquely alone. The tiny sparks she sees in her mind confirm it. A
chance encounter leads her closer to answers she's struggled to find and into a hidden society where fur
is optional. There she meets Clay. Is he her salvation or her curse?
As if he isn’t enough to deal with, problems compound when other werewolves, ones with abnormally
colored sparks, begin to stalk her.
Instead of gaining answers, her list of questions is growing. What do the other uniquely colored sparks
mean? Is she not as alone as she thought?

About the Judgement series:
For over a millennia, we thought we were alone.  Now, we’ve learned the truth.  Six women are reborn
every one thousand years to bring us a message: We are being judged.
Humans have ruled the earth by the grace of the Judgements.  Our prosperity has been the downfall for
the werewolves and urbat, and the urbat refuse to stand aside for another millennia.
The time for Judgement has come again.

Sadie is a submissive yet only in the Bedroom or in a Scene, not every day life. She has had a huge crush on Dave the owner of the BDSM she goes to for over a year now. They play but that is all she wants him in her everyday world.

Review of Catnip by J.S. Frankel

by J.S. Frankel

Harry Goldman, teenage DNA researcher, genius, and total nerd, is thrown into jail for illegal transgenic research. Freed by the FBI on the condition he works under their aegis, Harry is taken to New York where he meets Anastasia, a cat-girl and the product of transgenic engineering. No sooner do they get acquainted then they are attacked by another creature, a bear which is more than a bear, and are forced to flee for their lives. Along the way, they encounter furries, Doug the Dog, find out that they are more into each other emotionally than they’re willing to admit, and end up in the Catskill Mountains where Harry finds out the shocking truth about how Anastasia was created...and what she was created for.

Loved every minute of this book. pulled me right in very first page.. very well-written and fast-pace read!! This book is pack full of action, mystery and keeps you trying to guess about what happen and who did it.. One thing is for sure nobody need to play god.
Harry and  Anastasia i felt bad for them all the way to very end of this book nothing or anybody cut them a break,they had to fight none stop.. they did kinda get happy ending but not at the same time... This book has it all from the mad scientist, mutants, FBI agents and good guys... I hope there is a second book coming out in the future!!!

Simon Palmer blew me away with this novel. His writing flowed and the pages turned quickly. I laughed at Stan's unending ways of screwing up and cried as Michael sat trying to cope in those awful prison situations. Nigel by far is was my favorite character. Nigel was brave and did all he could for the love of his grandson. We sacrifice so must for those we love. . . .

Wonderful, Outstanding NOVEL ! !  I can not wait to read the sequel ! ! !  ! !

Review of Cranberry Blood (blood series) by Elizabeth Morgan

Cranberry Blood (blood series)
by Elizabeth Morgan

Killing Vampires? Easy.
Tracking someone? Simple.
Helping, and protecting a Vampire slayer . . . . Bloody hard work!

Thirteen years ago, Brendan Daniels made a deal with a psychic. In exchange for information on the whereabouts of a Rogue Werewolf, he promised to help and protect Sofia's granddaughter. Unfortunately, he had no idea what he was letting himself, or his Pack, in for.

Nothing about Heather is simple, from her weird dietary needs to her life’s mission. The girl can handle herself, but the promise to protect her soon becomes a need, and one he can't fully understand.

Vampire Slayer. 
Born Infected. 
Addicted to blood . . . but not by choice.

Heather Ryan is the current Slayer in a long family line. Like all before her, she has spent her life searching for her ancestor, Marko Pavel, the Vampire her family has sworn to kill. If that isn't complicated enough, she is also a born "Infected", and to keep her from becoming insane or giving in to her darker side, she is on a very strict diet.

Now that her Grandmother Sofia has passed, it is up to Heather to take the family legacy into her own hands. Or at least, it would have been...if her Grandmother hadn't sent a Werewolf to help her.

What is the irritating Brendan supposed to help her with? Sofia never told either of them. Luckily, it doesn't take long for Heather and Brendan to find out that the Vampires have big plans, and that the Leeches have waited a long time for them both.

OMG!!! LOVE THIS BOOK!!   Heather was amazing kickass lady loved her!!  Brendan "spoon" big bad wolf sexy and funny and powerfully!!! loved every minute of this book. This book pack full of secrets, mystery, non-stop action.. It was amazing well written and plots, tons of twists put you on edge of your sit... This book pulls you right in and hooked all the to end... I need more!!!! can't wait...

Review of Phoenix Blade by Andrew Hess

Phoenix Blade
Andrew Hess

Vengeance . . . . . That is what is on the agenda for the Benefactor. . .. .

December 21, 2006 is the day Andrew Lancaster's life will change forever. Andrew received a call from the Benefactor, wanting him to eliminate greedy corporate leaders and corrupt politicians. They will be named the Revolution, the Benefactor will be  pulling all the strings and the head of  the committee. The mission is simply; to make the world a better place. This was a running joke with his 2 friends from high school, Lilly and Mike, they never gave a second thought to it becoming real. Andrew, Mike and Lilly will be hired to capture and eliminate those that evade justice. 

The first mission is to seek Vengeance. Andrew's mother died in a car crash when he was 15, little did he know the car was tampered with and she was murdered. The assignment he is do will hit home, but, after all these years, his mother will have the justice she deserves. One completed mission leads into another and a bigger one. Andrew soon is named the Phoenix, rising from his own asses.

This was a true thriller ! !  You, like the characters are not sure who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. The books takes off from the first sentence and does not disappoint. Each character fits in right where they are needed and very easy to follow. A great novel on how corrupt some government officials can be. There were a few times I found myself wanting to yell and a yes even a few moments to shed a tear or two! Andrew Hess did a wonderful job on this novel and can't wait to read more on the Phoenix and his band of justice seekers ! !  !
