A Clean Shifter Romance that's funny too!

Just Released...

Rated PG:

Maycee Fox is fed up with dating vain men! They'd rather study their reflections in spoons than spend quality time with her. Being stuck in a secret society of foxes who can shape shift into drop-dead gorgeous people isn't helping matters either, since they are the epitome of vain. She needs out. When her ex dares her to find love with an Average Joe, she's ready to sink her canines into the challenge, if only to teach him a lesson. But when she stumbles upon Adam Lanning, a humble yet sexy mechanic, it's Maycee who's in for a lesson or two about vanity and true love.


A New Mystery Written from the Perspective of a Siamese Cat

We've all seen mysteries where a sleuth has an animal companion that helps bring important clues to attention. Siamese cats in particular are more common, beloved sidekicks. What's different about this mystery, A YEN FOR MURDER, is that it's written in the cat's 1st person POV. Be in the mind of a sophisticated, fun-loving Siamese, as she solves murders in our new Charli Chan mystery series.

ABOUT THE BOOK: On a sultry summer night in Santa Monica, the only thing hotter than the busy city streets is murder. Locals awake to the news that a club’s dancer has been strangled, and so a Siamese cat named Charli Chan takes to the streets to investigate. The Strangler leaves a calling card, one golden yen, and when more dancers receive the mysterious coins, panic grips the city. Charli can't resist tugging on every loose thread in the case—curiosity and cats, after all—and she enlists the help of her friend Malcolm, a Scottish terrier with identity issues. Together, they may just find the killer, but the cost to her glamorous human roommate, Harlow Reese, may be more than she is prepared to pay.

Re-branding the Zoey and Claire Mystery Series

THE ZOEY AND CLAIRE MYSTERY SERIES got a face lift! Now referred to as Z&C Mysteries, we've made some fun cover changes. While we love the original covers, we are certain the new covers will appeal to even more women. A big concern was that the previous covers didn't do the stories justice, because they looked absolutely serious. Look at The Riddles of Hillgate's original image below. Where was the feminine vibe, humor, or fun? Zoey and Claire are a mother-daughter sleuthing team, but they are also funny, brave, amazing women whose personalities clash in the most perfect way! We needed to show this somehow.

We hired artist Lauren Burke of Hey Hey Designs! to make a custom silhouette of the ladies to spread across every one of our covers. To the left, you can see the results (click images to see larger). Zoey is standing behind her daughter Claire, holding up her gun, ready for anything. Claire is holding the flashlight, as usual, the beam highlighting a tombstone. We're in love with everything about it, from their posing to their high heels. (The background images were purchased separately  from

So, our plan is to re-advertise this series, and to continue release more books. We completely believe in Z&C Mysteries. It's a fresh, unique series, where the mother and daughter can kick butt in heels if they have to. The situations can get very scary, but nothing is ever too gory. The reading is clean, while also vibrant. It's just plain fast-paced fun. Our expectations are that these diamonds in the rough will soon sparkle in all their intended glory.
