Now in the center ring... murder!

Newly-minted private detective Charlotte Morgan, resident orphan of the Pineapple Port 55+ community, discovers she might not be an orphan after all.

When a fortune-teller doesn't see her own death in the cards, Charlotte's burglary becomes a murder investigation!

Charlotte's neighborhood moms, Mariska and Darla, can't help with this one. They're busy infiltrating an underground golf cart racing ring, led by a shady operator and her toady sidekick...

When another circus performer falls victim to the Big Top Killer and Stephanie goes missing, Charlotte finds herself walking a highwire of danger...this killer isn't clowning around!

by Rachel Rossano

Genre: Romantic Medieval Fairytale Retelling



Rhett is a Huntsman, skilled, secretive, and mysterious. A wanted man, he spends his life on the move. His sole retreat is the outskirts of an isolated village in the northern reaches of the duchies. Then one fall, he arrives to find his hovel burned to the ground and the village reeve offering a new arrangement.

Catherine knows her father, the village miller, only cares about what she can bring him. The latest scheme of marrying her to the Huntsman is not the miller’s first attempt to sell her. Cat’s dread wanes when she meets the Huntsman. There is something honorable about him, and he treats her with respect, unlike her father or brother. Perhaps she can escape her father’s influence forever.

Despite his suspicions, Rhett agrees to the deal and frees Cat from her father’s tyranny, at least for a time. But can he protect her when enemies from his past catch up to him?

I love paranormal romance as a genre. It’s fun, can be suspenseful and scary, but it can also make you laugh aloud with a character’s antics, or curl your toes in delight. There’s a lot the genre offers. It was the first choice of genre for me when I plopped myself in front of my laptop and said, “I’m going to write a book.”

Now, I’m a kitchen witch. I potter around in my kitchen brewing beer, making fruit wines, and infusing spirits. I cook with love and intention and wish to nourish everyone who walks through my front door. No one leaves my house hungry. There’s the vegetable garden and herb garden to take care of, and soap and shampoo to make. In short, I keep myself busy manifesting things that nurture the every day aspects of my loved ones lives. It was a no brainer for me to make my main character a witch.

I love stories about witches – women who refuse to follow the mold of womanhood society has set out for them. Witches create a space outside societal norms to live in, thwarting the patriarchy by brandishing power. I loved the idea of showcasing how a woman who lives outside of the power structure falls in love with someone with an equal footing. Enter Cedric Bligh. Cedric is a godling, the son of a mortal woman and the god of the forest. As a godling, Cedric has a tremendous amount of magic, though it is wild and untamed, whereas our witch, Maddy, has honed her craft.

Now, what was most important to me was that these two powerful people were on equal footing and treated each other as equals. From the beginning they are open and honest with one another. I said this in my author bio, and I’ll say it again, open communication is key to a healthy relationship. I was adamant about showing how communication can spice a relationship up. Especially during the steamy bits. You can’t get what you want if you don’t ask for it! And we all want good sex, right? Unless our partners are mind readers, we need to articulate our needs and desires.

I had an absolute blast writing The Witch and the Stag, and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Jax will do anything to save her twin . . . even team up with a teenage alien left behind by the same ship that took her brother.

She agrees to help the alien get back home, and in return, he agrees to sneak her into the alien city to find her sibling.

Too bad it's not that simple.

Jax soon finds that she's drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales on his back and he's equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn't know the alien's true motives, and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems.

Worse, the connection forming between them has unknown consequences.

The humans and the aliens are both hiding deadly secrets and the forbidden bond linking the two teens threatens to reveal everything. What started as an uneasy alliance and a seemingly straightforward rescue mission could spark an inter-species war.

Fractured Suns

Broken Skies Book 2



Almost everything she thought she knew is wrong…

A trip to the city yields some much-needed answers, but Jax is once again forced to leave Lir behind and return to Peter’s cabin where enemies from her past await. But there are bigger things at stake than revenge, and she finds herself traveling with some unexpected companions toward a place she hoped to never see again.

After being imprisoned on the orders of his uncle, Lir hasn’t seen daylight or linked to anyone in weeks, and the pain and loneliness is almost too much to bear. But Jax’s visit gives him renewed hope—and the strength to continue fighting his uncle's influence over the E'rikon, even when things look hopeless.

While Jax and Lir fight separate battles, their missions have more in common than they realize. It’s a race against time to stop men driven by greed and power. But the ones they trust the most might be the very people working against them—and "family" doesn't mean what it used to. Will they recognize their friends from their enemies in time to save the people they love…or will they lose each other in the process?

Shattered Stars

Broken Skies Book 3


Unexpected allies. Unexpected betrayals. Unexpected abilities.

The last thing Jax ever wanted was to be a weapon. Her abilities are unpredictable at best, but there’s no one else with enough power to take on Jastren and his mental manipulations. She doesn’t have to do it alone, though. Not only can she rely on the unwavering support of Lir, Rym, and her human friends, she also ends up with help from a surprising source.

Meanwhile, her twin brother Jace—his body controlled by Jastren, and the shattered pieces of his mind locked inside—has become a monster. The struggle to hold on to what’s left of his humanity has left him weak and more confused than ever before. Every thought, every impulse, and every memory has the potential to destroy him—and everyone else around him.

The futures of both the humans and the E’rikon are on the line, but as ulterior motives and political machinations are revealed, it becomes clear that the betrayals aren’t restricted to only one species. Can Jax and Lir get everyone to work together in time to prevent the two species from destroying each other? Can Jace find some measure of redemption for all he has done? And will Jax be able to harness her powers without losing herself?
