A Steamy Vampire Romance with Ultra Sexy Bite!

One sinful night, Kimberly White was bitten by a vampire.

It was the hottest, sexiest thing that had ever happened to her, and his breathtaking seduction changed her from an inexperienced, plain girl into a gorgeous, insatiable woman.

He was mysterious, as dark as the shadows, as wicked as an erotic fantasy.

Then he was gone, leaving her with a constant craving she hasn’t been able to chase away ever since that orgasmic encounter.

In search of more carnal satisfaction, Kim has been looking for her vampire on the sultry Vegas streets ever since, and when she finds him, all she wants is to feel his fangs in her once again.

But Rafe has secrets—and one of them is that he never bites the same human twice, no matter how addicted to Kim he is.

He’s also on the trail of another vampire who’s draining women, and Rafe has no time for attachments like the one he’s starting to hunger for with this human who’s intent on reaching the heights of ecstasy with him…

Ready for a spine-chilling horror thriller with mystery, shocks, twists, and romance?

It all started with a good-time cruise at sea…

When diver Katsu Espinoza is invited on a shark-cage expedition by her billionaire mentor, she’s definitely up for some adventure, even if it means spending time with his greedy heirs. Then she sees who the captain is—Will Ashton, the betraying ex-boyfriend who’d once shattered her heart. And as if that isn’t unexpected enough, her mentor decides that she’s going to inherit the millions of dollars that were supposed to go to his family!

…and turned into hell on earth when they got to the island.

Suddenly, Kat is the girl who swept in to steal a frail old man’s inheritance. Then a storm hits, stranding all of them on a deserted island, forcing them to survive in a paradise gone deadly, because it seems that someone here hasn’t forgotten the money; they’re killing victims with gruesome precision—and Will, with his secretive ways, is at the top of Kat’s growing list of murder suspects. And that list is getting horrifically whittled down one…by one…by one…

The author of the Vampire Babylon series and Only the Good Die Young presents another ghost story...

Ever wonder what happens after you die? Well, as a ghost, Jensen Murphy could tell you—and the truth is much stranger than anything you could imagine…

I never accomplished much when I was alive. As an average eighties California beach bum, I, Jensen Murphy, didn’t have any direction. But since I’ve joined Boo World, I’ve found a calling. Now, I’m a supernatural investigator, using my ghostly skills to spook confessions out of bad guys.

But being a paranormal PI is taking its toll. Spirits are hounding me for justice day and night, and, now, a ghost hunting TV show is digging up dirt on my unsavory demise that I’d rather keep buried. Worst of all, a seriously evil specter is making my afterlife hell by hurting the people and ghosts I care about. To stop him, I’ll need assistance from a higher power—only the price I’ll have to pay for that help could be my very soul…

Jensen Murphy is back in the spooky sequel to Only the Good Die Young.

Some people think that ghosts are spirits that refuse to go to the other side because they have unfinished business. Take my word?that’s true. I should know. I’m a ghost.

I was an ordinary eighties California girl, dead before my time, until psychic Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of the time loop where I was reliving my death over and over. Now I’m Jensen Murphy, Ghost for Hire. I decided to put my spooky talents to use in helping Amanda Lee track down bad guys and killers (including my own).

It’s taken time to figure out exactly how that will work (our first case was definitely a learning experience for all involved), so when a young woman asks Amanda Lee for help convincing her best friend to leave a dangerously hot-tempered boyfriend, I’m ready and willing to use our collective powers on her behalf. But some people are dangerous not only to the living?especially when there are darker forces involved....

FIRST IN A NEW SERIES

You know the theory that ghosts are energy trapped when someone dies violently? It’s true. I know it for a fact....

My name is Jensen Murphy, and thirty years ago, I was just an ordinary California girl. I had friends, family, a guy who might have been the One. Ordinary until I became a statistic, one of the unsolved murders of the year. Afterward, I didn’t go anywhere in pursuit of any bright light I stayed under the oak tree where my body was found, and relived my death over and over. So when a psychic named Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of that loop into the real world, I was very grateful.

Now I’m a ghost-at-large rescued by Amanda (I found out) to be a supernatural snoop. I’m helping her uncover a killer (not mine she promises me we’ll get to that), which should be easy for a spirit. Except that I’ve found out that even ghosts have enemies, human and otherwise
