When I arrive to board my sister's wedding cruise and she tells me my ex is going to be there, I know I need to take drastic action. I can’t spend three days alone on a boat with that psychotic, traitorous woman. But a red-haired beauty boarding the ship catches my eye. I make her an offer she can’t refuse. She accepts my proposal and my money. Three days should have been the end of it. But I don’t want our relationship to be fake. Not after getting to know her and the connection we share. I need her in my life permanently. I want to make my fake fiancée the real thing.

Kevin Taylor is an Internet-famous handyman on a mission: Find a house and renovate it in 30 days. By flipping a derelict house in a month's time and chronicling the entire thing on video for his online subscribers, he seeks to become a star. The problems that plague this property will require more than elbow grease to fix, however. Shadows throughout the home are distorted, and an enigmatic trespasser keeps showing up in his footage. Worse still are the hideous voices that issue from otherwise empty rooms in the dead of night.

I have heard almost all Ambroses's books. And I am a fan of almost all of them. What I like most about his writing is: He can take the most basic haunted house story and turn it in to something different. It builds slowly. but not enough to be boring. He always has good development and good twists. This book is no different. I like the twist at the ending, and it was not what I thought was going to happen. Good job!

Joe Hempel, does an excellent job as always. He never lets you down.

This was a sweet little shifter story. It doesn't go into to much detail because it is a short story. But its enough to keep you listening. Unlike other shifter stores, its sweet and ind of pure. its not jam packed full of sex. Not to say there isn't a sex scene init, but. its not what the book is about or based on.

Kate Tyler did a good job telling this story.

The ultimate biological warfare attack is achieved when a group of American soldiers return home from deployment infected with a highly contagious pathogen. The ground zero incubation period is lengthy, and before it is even known that they are infected, the soldiers have already carried it to various cities across the United States. The culprit of this weapon is not a country or even a person, but rather nature itself. Within time, no place in the world is safe.

Westley Flagg isn't your usual lawbreaker. He's a poacher, a moonshiner, and a prepper, out of necessity. Despite trying to live on the straight and narrow, he knows the law can turn things on you in a heartbeat. When Wes has to come up with money for his Grandpa's surgery, he gets involved with an unsavory group. Living deep in poverty for most of his life, he's become resilient and flexible, but college education can only take him so far. A solar storm sends the northern lights as far south as Texas, and cascading failures in the grid cripple the nation. Now, without communications, Flagg has to prove he has what it takes to still survive.

I've spent my entire adult life avoiding dating, which is funny because I work for a matchmaking service. My boss calls me "The Beast" because of my no B.S. attitude. My job is to scare away problem clients - the unmatchables. In waltzes Mister Alfred Barnes. He's stuck up, brazen, and mouthwateringly gorgeous. Guys like him think they own the world, but in here I'm in charge. Kicking him out of my office is one of my greatest pleasures...until I find out that he totally lied about his identity.

Elliot Jefferson moved to the isolated Estates of North Hills to work on his sobriety and avoid other people at all costs. But when the electric transformers around the complex begin emitting a horrible buzz that he calls "the Squall", neither is easy to achieve. Because some of his neighbors are acting strange. Twitching, fighting, and muttering about voices only they can hear. Soon Elliot will find himself face-to-face with the worst humanity has to offer, as wives imprison husbands, children butcher parents, and those under the Squall's influence go to insane lengths to keep their secret safe. If he wants to survive, Elliot must discover the awful truth for himself, and lead a small group of innocents to safety...before they're all just as doomed as their neighbors.
