Author: Carrie Pulkinen

Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal romance author who has always been fascinated with things that go bump in the night. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her love of a good happily-ever-after, and becoming a paranormal romance author seems like the only logical career choice.

Before she decided to turn her love of the written word into a career, Carrie spent the first part of her professional life as a high school journalism and yearbook teacher. She loves good chocolate and bad puns, and in her free time, she likes to read, drink wine, and travel with her family.

Ignorance isn’t always bliss.

New Orleans homicide detective Bryce Samuels would rather save lives than investigate deaths. He earns a promotion allowing him to do just that, but he never thinks the people he’ll be tasked to save will be the ones closest to him. When the woman of his dreams shows up on his doorstep, beaten and bruised, the mysteries surrounding her “accident” will leave him fighting not just for her life, but for his own.

A rogue can’t be expected to settle down, especially with a human cop, who doesn’t know werewolves exist. But that’s exactly what Alexis Gentry’s wolf nags her to do from the moment she meets Bryce. When a run-in with her sadistic ex turns deadly, she seeks shelter with the sexy detective to avoid starting a war between the packs.

Alexis guards her heart as heavily as her secrets, but as the walls come down, she can’t help but fall for Bryce. Letting him into her supernatural world will endanger his life, but she soon discovers what he doesn’t know can hurt him.

Trent's heart may belong to Tina, but a shadow demon is after his soul...

Trent Austin is a successful, big-city lawyer. The last thing he needs is the burden of a run-down house in the suburbs. But when his crazy uncle dies and leaves his estate to Trent, he soon learns he's inherited a lot more than a Victorian mansion. He's got to get rid of the house--and the ghosts that came with it--before it kills him.

Tina Sanders is the best real estate agent in Michigan, so she shouldn't be surprised when Trent calls her to sell his uncle's house. But she hasn't spoken to Trent since she dumped him three months ago. Her fear of commitment forced her to sideline Trent to the friend-zone, but the flames rekindle as soon as she sees him again. Despite her better judgement, she accepts the job and soon discovers her connection to the house runs deeper than the sexy lawyer who owns it.

Something in that house wants Trent dead. As he battles to win the affections of the sultry real estate agent, he's also fighting for his life.
