With one small chess piece, the game begins… For archaeologist and TV host Annja Creed, a late-night phone call from the NYPD means one thing: there's been a murder and the police need her expertise. The only link between a dead body and the killer is a small elephant of white jade. An artifact that's gone missing. Once belonging to Catherine the Great of Russia, the elephant was key in a risky political gambit all those years ago. But there is another story attached to the artifact—a rumor of an ancient hidden treasure. And for a cruelly ambitious media mogul with a penchant for tomb-raiding, the elephant is nothing short of priceless. Annja must make her move quickly, traveling across several continents with only the assistance of her extraordinary sword—purportedly the same sword wielded by Joan of Arc—and a mysterious temple monk. It's a deadly battle of wits, and one wrong move could mean game over.

Book #1: Whisper of Love There is a thin line between love and hate. For Allison Walsh, that line was a tightrope hanging a hundred feet in the air, with no safety net to catch her if--or when--she fell. Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother, who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral. Kade’s MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend’s little sister. He’s sure his demons mean he’s not good enough for her, but he’s going to do everything in his power to conquer them. When the sexy, tattooed fighter shows up on Ali’s doorstep out of the blue with a bag hanging over his shoulder and a smile that would make a nun blush, he seems different. But after all he’s put her through, Ali’s not in a forgive-and-forget kinda mood. Will Kade prove that he's the man worthy of Ali’s heart and trust, or will his past sins determine their future? Book #2: Whisper of Surrender Jessa Meyers never let herself think about forever before her heart transplant. When you don’t think you’ll have a future, it’s too painful to plan for one. But now that the stunning, blue-eyed beauty isn't “the sick girl” anymore, she’s determined to dream big and make those dreams come true. Only one problem: every time she tries to dream up her “forever,” all she can seem to think about is Ethan Steele. Ethan Steele knows that loving Jessa is a probably a losing proposition. She’s made it clear again and again over the years that she doesn’t want his attention. Only one problem: that’s not what her eyes say each and every time they meet his. The sexy, brooding U.S. Marshal knows that a plan is the clearest path to success, and he has one: convince her to be his fake girlfriend for the summer. What could go wrong? Book #

It is a race against time in a nightmare world. A nightmare that began its journey over three and a half billion years ago and only now is its presence about to unfold, and it wants to move on. She was hoping to still his anxiety by concentrating on another aspect of their research. “I was reading about the state of order and disorder.” Clem looked surprised. “The world, the universe and all life are in a state of disorder.” She cuddled closer; she couldn’t get enough of the comfort his body gave when close to her. “Energy exists forever and the Dormancy is just that, energy, but it is an energy that disobeys the laws of physics – it’s continually in a state of order! Growing, forever growing, for billions of years it has been growing!” “You mean the pattern that has brought life to this point, is still generating to realms…” Clem thought for a moment. “Of what?” How do you battle that which you cannot see and whose ability you cannot measure? How long is a piece of string? The tale begins with a true ‘ghost’ story, which takes us where no ghost story has ever gone before.

Now, thirty years later, someone is here to remind Richard that they remember what Sean did. And though Sean doesn’t exist anymore, someone needs to pay the price for his lies.
