There's magic in the air when the warm breezes blow...

In "Tupelo Honey" by Ann Gregory, Raul and Desdemona aren't young, and don't have stars in their eyes. They've loved and lost. Maybe hot tea and warm milk sweetened with tupelo honey can reawaken their hearts.

Will riding the Ferris wheel be worse than admitting her fear? Violet must decide when the love of her life invites her along in "The Ferris Wheel" by Stacy McKitrick.

Hunger was no game to exhausted off duty marshal Hennesey James. All he wanted was to sink his teeth into something hot, juicy and fried. Instead he got a heaping platter of attitude from a waitress with a piece de resistance all her own in "Swizzle Stick" by Sandy Pennington.

In "The Wish" by Stacy McKitrick, all of Paige's fortieth birthday wishes include office hunk Mike. But will she be adventurous enough to see if any of them can come true?

In "Titanic Love" by Linda Chalk, Stefan's seemingly endless wait to be reunited with his family is prolonged when news of Titanic's sinking reaches America. Is it love or madness that keeps him waiting at the pier?

Carmen is fed up with Harry, and decides to kill him, in front of witnesses. And she gets away with it! Find out how in "The Death of Harry" by Ann Gregory.

A disgruntled cop battles his urge for the cigarettes he quit, and his attraction for the hot new partner he doesn't want, while he investigates a school ice cream theft. Then he finds there's more to the crime than he thought-and more to his partner, too, in "Sam, Kate, and the Lunch Lady's Secret" by Dakota James.

In "Time's Tempest: The Storm" by Jennette Marie Powell, a headstrong handyman takes his first trip back in time in search of his own past. Instead, he winds up in the storm of the century, on the run from a madman from the future, with a woman he doesn't remember meeting-or falling in love with.

About the Author

LINDA CHALK has been writing romances for as long as she can remember. She has completed one historical romance set in the backdrop of the California gold rush. A second one is in progress. She loves to read about American history especially the old west, and researching all the interesting stuff high school history class left out. Her family often claims that she was born in the wrong century.

Judy Carpenter, writing as ANN GREGORY, lives in Cherry Grove, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband Bill and Zacc, a gray and white tom cat. When she's not writing, Judy enjoys painting, sewing, quilting, and traveling with Bill.

DAKOTA JAMES started writing fiction as a young girl when a beloved teacher encouraged her to write ghost stories around Halloween. Dakota quickly switched from writing horror to romantic fiction when she wrote such frightening paranormal stories that she ended up spooking herself. Now, she sleeps better at night writing contemporary romantic stories as opposed to writing about gangsters turning into vampires in a cornfield on the eve of Halloween.

STACY McKITRICK fell in love with paranormal romance, decided to write her own in 2009, and found her passion in life. She used to work in accounting, now she spends her time with vampires, ghosts, and aliens. Born in California, she currently resides in Ohio with her hus-band. They have two grown children.

SANDY PENNINGTON is an admitted word obsessor. She just can't leave some words or characters alone! Myths, legends and the natural world fuel her imagination. Her favorite thing is curling up with a good book and poring through a dictionary. She gratefully acknowledges her friends and family for the love and inspiration that comes her way.

JENNETTE MARIE POWELL writes time travel and science fiction romance. A life-long resident of Dayton, Ohio, she likes to dig beneath the surface and find the extraordinary beneath the mundane, whether in people, places, or historical events. By day, she wrangles data and websites between excursions to search for the aliens and spacecraft that legends say are stashed away on the military base where she works.
