Now available again! The award-winning steampunk romance rides again!

Winner of Second Prize in the 2011 PRISM Fantasy category!

Their love rides on a spring and a prayer…

During the recent Civil War, a soldier risked his life to save Jonathan Handleston—and lost. With the help of an advanced metal brace on his crippled hand, Jon now travels from one poker tournament to the next, determined to earn enough money to repay the man’s debt.

Prosperity Ridge is supposed to be the last stop on his quest, but his brace is broken and he needs an engineer to repair the delicate mechanisms. The only one available is Samantha Weatherly, a beautiful anomaly in a world ruled by men.

Sam is no fool. Jon is no different from any other gambler—except for his amazing prosthetic. Despite a demanding project to win a critical contract to develop an iron horse, she succumbs to the lure of working on the delicate mechanisms. And working with the handsome Englishman.

Like a spring being coiled, Samantha and Jon are inexorably drawn together. Sam begins to realize honor wears many faces, and she becomes the light at the end of Jon’s journey to redemption. The only monkey wrench is Victor, a rival gambler who will stop at nothing to make sure Jon misses the tournament. Even destroy Jon’s and Sam’s lives.

You can lead a Domme to love...but you can't make her fall.

Kate Dubois is a Domme-for-hire for the highly exclusive Hooded Pleasures, a service offering private BDSM sessions to those who can't--or won't--risk appearing in an actual club.

Lately, though, she wonders if professional burnout is causing her to have painful flashbacks to a past heartbreak. When her boss insists her next client will be a breath of fresh air, Kate reluctantly agrees to an interview.

Alex Hanson dominates the world of computer game programming, but secretly he suspects he might be a sub in the bedroom. There's only one good way to find out--hire a professional to show him the ropes.

Their first meeting puts both of them to the test--Alex's self-control, and Kate's realization she might just like him a little too much. But there's no denying their emotions are inextricably entangled...a dangerous step Kate's not sure her heart is prepared to take.

Warning: Contains a hard-core computer geek with a tender side, and a Domme who can't afford to expose her greatest weakness--him. Geekery combined with flogging. Enjoy!

She knows how to stand on her own two feet. Can she find power on her knees?

Veronica Locksley is a Domme without a club to play in. Suspended from Boots 'n' Chains for not being gentle with her submissives, she's offered one chance to regain her status. Spend some time as one of them. Everything in her rebels at the idea, but she has no choice but to agree.

Oliver Greenwood is a sexy, powerful but widowed Dom who's ready to emerge from his grieving period. All that stands between him and his return to the dating scene is one last assignment for Hooded Pleasures-to put a Domme under his thumb for six sessions to teach her greater respect for her subs. Veronica turns out to be more than a handful. Yet even as she butts heads with him every step of the way, he discovers that beneath her tiger-in-the-boardroom personality hides the heart of a true submissive. One that's extraordinarily easy to fall in love with. But before she can become anyone's dream-including her own-he has to let her go. And hope she finds the path that will lead back to his arms.

Warning: Brooding Dom bookstore owner who's looking to begin living again and a tough businesswoman who doesn't realize that being on her knees makes her stronger, not weaker.

Some will rise, others will fall…

Jo Tanis is still recovering from her near-death experience in Las Vegas when she receives a mysterious postcard from Harris Limox, who claims to have a promising lead on the whereabouts of the Controller. Over her boyfriend/guardian Hunter’s objections, she sets off to a sleepy Oregon town to ferret out the truth.

The Controller is more than just a disgruntled super. He’s a rogue Guardian who was presumed dead and is now armed with a slew of high-tech hardware that not only makes him physically superior to the supers—and therefore almost impossible to destroy—he’s got the ability to detonate the implants in the back of all supers’ necks.

In Oregon, Jo meets a surviving Alpha super, Kit Masters, whose wild plan to capture the Controller could put an entire town of innocents at risk. But instead of successfully talking her former idol out of his disastrous bid to regain former glory, Jo finds herself betrayed and trapped in her worst nightmare.

Fight her former teammates, or die.

Warning: Super brawling, super loving and a super-hot ending!

Fight alone, die alone.

In the weeks since Jo "Surf" Tanis and her rough-and-tumble band of super-powered actors broke free of the government-sponsored superhero show, they're all still dealing with the aftershock of adjusting to this thing called reality.

It doesn't get much more real than a mission to dig survivors out of what's left of Erie, PA, after a mysterious earthquake. A trembler that powerful is as out of place as Jo feels as the de-facto leader of the troupe. Not to mention the soul-shaking feelings she has for Hunter, a team member whose past as an Agency Guardian casts a heavy shadow over any possible relationship.

It seems one of the supers, an earth-warper named Ground Pounder, has gone rogue, using his freedom from the Agency's brand of virtual slavery to put the "villain" back in supervillain. Failure to find him before any more innocent bystanders are hurt means the team could be back under the Agency's thumb.

It's a burden that doesn't rest easy on Jo's shoulders...especially when the man who's invaded her heart is caught in the crossfire.

Warning: Contains kick-ass super women, super men and a budding romance ready to go into orbit. Also, gambling and Las Vegas buffets!

Length: Novel

There's no such thing as a "Purr"-fect murder…

Rebecca Desjardin thought she had put her past behind her...until a dead "cat woman" appears on the front page of a local tabloid.

Street-smart and sassy, Rebecca is a survivor. Outcast from her Felis family because she can no longer change shape, she’s adapted to the world of men, and is quite capable of taking care of herself in her sometimes challenging career as a private investigator. But for her success she pays a price, her heritage, which she must keep secret at all costs.

Along for the ride, investigative reporter Brandon Hanover has his own troubled past. A photograph of the dead woman was supposedly slipped under his door, marking him as a possible suspect in the murder. Now all he wants to do is find the killer, clear his name, and get a good story…And maybe find out more about this mysterious woman he might be falling for.
