The Low Notes by Kate Roth
When a chance meeting between high school teacher Kevin Reed and singer Nina Jordan ignites an instant spark, they must decide if it’s more important to follow your heart or follow the rules.
After caring for his dying father, Kevin Reed, returns to his hometown of Wexley Falls, bereaved, unemployed and exhausted at the thought of starting a new life. After a failed blind date, Kevin meets young singer Nina Jordan who takes his breath away with the sound of her voice. The connection is instantaneous and mutual on their first date, but both are crestfallen when they discover days later, to their horror, Nina is Kevin’s student at the local high school.
Deciphering between notions of love and lust, fate and coincidence, Kevin and Nina find themselves unable to turn their backs on what they can’t deny is a once in a lifetime feeling. Told from both perspectives, The Low Notes explores a love that feels right even though it seems wrong.

Mate Calling by JL Oiler
Alexandra Hinkle has a secret, one that’s kept her alone for most of her life. She’s a werecat, a rare shape shifter whose body has the ability to transform into a sleek feline. That’s probably why she had no problem just pulling up stakes and moving half way across the country to the small mountain city of Red Cliff, Colorado.
The town boasts a population of a whopping two hundred and eighty nine, or 290 now that Alexandra has accepted the transfer to become the onsite representative for United States Geological Survey, a job which amounts to her hiking up and down the mountain to review current mapping and acting as liaison between the USGS and the Colorado Department of Education. Figuring she’s found the perfect place to hide out for the rest of her life without anyone being the wiser of her special condition, she attempts to settle into her new life. However, things aren’t as unassuming in Red Cliff as they first appear. For one thing, someone seems to be attempting to keep her far from Eagle’s Pass and out of town, so much so that they don’t mind arranging a few accidents. Then there’s the fact she’s faced with one of the ultra sexy Hyatt brothers at every turn. It’s a major distraction to say the least.
The Hyatt brothers have called Red Cliff home since they were kits, and the town folk have always watched out for the troublesome threesome despite their unique abilities to become ferocious mountain lions. The three are the last remaining members of their family and direct decedents to the original mining camp settlers of the Eagle Valley. When they cross paths with the town’s newest occupant, they’re instantly attracted to the fiery red head and not just because she has a body built for sin. Now that they can see the means to keep their blood line alive, how can they convince the elusive Alexandra to answer their Mate Call? And how do they put a stop to all the trouble that seems to surround the town and Alexandra at every turn?

Private Pirouette by Lila Munro
Piper McGee can smell a set up a mile away. She can smell a Marine even further. Born to a dual-enlisted couple who divorced before she was old enough to remember a single family holiday together and proceeded to redefine the very definition of family through several marriages and even more step-siblings, Piper has made it her life’s promise to herself to never become involved with one of the few and the proud. They’re among the most irresponsible people she knows, leaving destruction in their wake and broken hearts paving the way to their next duty station. And in her opinion, Alec Douglas is just another example, until he pries her heart open along with other parts of her, making her question everything she’s ever let herself believe about honor, courage, and commitment.
What does a man do with six month’s down time and no warm body to share his bed? For Sergeant Alec Douglas, contemplating that question led him to fall prey to his two best friend’s plan to find him that very thing. They know Alec has yet to stay with any one person for more than a few dates. They also know a tragedy from his past created the problem and while that haunts him, making it nearly impossible for Alec to trust his heart to anyone, they also know he’s a sucker for a challenge. Will the enticement of a few thousand dollars riding on him breaking his own rule be just the thing to break his cycle? Taking their bet might be profitable, but is winning the money they’ve dangled under Alec’s nose worth losing himself to the girl they’ve picked out for him?
In his quest to get her to say yes to his crazy proposal, he tracks her all over town only to discover the beautiful, long-legged blond isn’t the studious book worm he mistook her for. In fact, she’s one of Jacksonville’s finest in the form of Orchid, exotic dancer. Her rejection only spurs him to make sure her dancing days are over and she only performs her private pirouette for him, and only him, for the rest of their lives if he has his way.
