Ex-marine Shane Ryan is a ghost hunter whose troubled past haunts him almost as much as the ghosts he encounters in the line of duty. He’s the best. And his reward for excellence? The punishment of being in high demand for jobs to eradicate the worst kind of ghosts – the kind that kill.

His latest assignment is an idyllic island setting with sunny skies, crystal blue ocean and a venerable old lighthouse that makes the scenery picture perfect … except for the malevolent, murderous ghosts marring the living portrait.

The Pope of Palm Beach

Rating: 4.6


Growing up, Serge was enthralled by the Legend of Riviera Beach, aka Darby, a welder at the port who surfed the local waves long before the hot spots were hot. A god on the water, the big-hearted surfer was a friend to everyone – the younger surfers, cops, politicians, wealthy businessmen and ordinary Joes – a generosity of spirit that earned him the admiration of all. Meanwhile, there was a much murkier legend that made the rounds of the schoolyards from Serge’s youth—that of the crazy hermit living in a makeshift jungle compound farther up the mysterious Loxahatchee River than anyone dared to venture.

Never Say Never
by Taylor Holloway
Rating: 4.7


Never ask questions. Never hesitate. Never get emotionally involved. Words I’ve lived by. Until her. I’m a fixer. I fix bad, embarrassing, illegal problems, for the right price. My clients are rich, famous, powerful, and very dangerous. Now I’ve got a problem of my very own: Eva Martin. She just happens to be both my best friend’s little sister, and at the center of the most explosive problem I’ve ever faced.

As the body count rises around us, I’m falling for the one woman that’s totally out of bounds. Her wide innocent eyes, perfect curves, and sexy, smoky voice–she’s a liability and a weakness, but I’m unable to resist. Eva’s a risky distraction for a man like me.
