Soon, Bee’s stalker isn’t his only problem. His gambling addict father is tangled in a mess of debts to two of Houston’s toughest loan sharks. With the family gym on the line, there’s only one way for Kelly to make everything right. He agrees to fight for the Albanian mob in an underground bare-knuckle fighting tournament.
But winning the tournament and saving his family’s legacy comes at a high price—one that just might cost Bee her life.

Liz was not like her best friend Stacy. She preferred long walks at night to late night parties, holding hands to holding something else, and a kiss goodnight to bumpin’ uglies. Then how did she end up naked from her waist down with a guy she barely knew in the middle of a parking lot? How did she end up falling for someone who might be responsible for her parent’s death?
When her dog died and her boyfriend turned gay, Liz Collins forced herself to look on the bright side of things and stoically endure misfortune. Liz knew the sun would shine for her, for her mother always told her so. But when her parent’s died in a tragic car accident, a part of her died with them. The naive part that believed in tomorrow’s sunshine rather than the night’s darkness, the darkness of sin and death. But even when she was falling part, she couldn’t fall apart. She just couldn’t. For the sake of her family and for Stacy—Liz’s morbid, redhead, best friend. Even if Stacy would never admit to anyone—least of all Liz—she was all Stacy had and Liz made a promise to attend college with her. For a girl holding on to the last strand of her sanity and self-esteem, it was a promise that offered her an escape from the never ending nightmare that was her life but nothing more. Until, she meets Nick Jones.
Flying was his passion and the only thing stopping Nick from being a fighter pilot was a college degree. Should be a piece of cake compared to his last surveillance mission in Afghanistan or his last rescue mission in Brazil. Or so he thought, until he discovered his girlfriend Liz’s knack of stumbling into trouble. The girl’s got a bounty on her head, literally.
Charming, annoying and ruggedly gorgeous, Nick Jones was full of surprises and falling for him was not part of Liz’s plan, if she ever had one. After all, Liz was still holding on to the last strand of life and taking a leap of faith at that point was a bit like sky diving without a parachute. But she couldn’t resist Nick. She couldn’t seem to help herself. Brave, no. Foolish, maybe. Because a man who says he is an FBI agent just dropped the biggest bombshell about her new, mysterious boyfriend and his whereabouts on the day of her parent’s death. Tore between love and despair, Liz is put to the ultimate test of creating her own destiny from the clutches of fate, inflicted upon her.

When Life Falls to Pieces, Answers Lie in the Space Between
Leni Drago can’t make a smart decision on her own, according to her mother anyway–the few times she’s tried resulted in disaster. When her uncle sends her on a dance tour in Italy to find her real self, she returns to an empty home and any evidence of his existence wiped out. Then things get even stranger, like the mysterious appearances of Jeric Winters–inked, pierced and a hit-’em-and-quit-’em type. He’s one decision that should be easy for Leni. Or is he?
Jeric doesn’t do girlfriends. Unless they’re someone else’s. He left the fighting cage and modeling for a reason, and girls who want more than a night of fun are distractions he doesn’t need. Especially when they come with as much baggage as Leni carries. But he can’t shake the gut feeling that he needs to know her. All of her.
To discover the truth behind their connection and their ties to a journal from 1989, they must face painful secrets from their pasts. And they must do so quickly because their own existences are falling to pieces.
This first part of The Book of Phoenix takes you on a heart-wrenching ride as you discover the answers that lie in The Space Between.
Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows she can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him.
But Kari doesn’t know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuckload of heartache.
Richard “Vegas” Beltran is an underachiever. That’s bad for any student, but it’s especially bad when you go to a wizardry school. Black Magic is something to be taken very seriously, but Vegas has been caught smoking “eye of newt” in the boys’ bathroom, and all of his bubbling cauldrons contain ice and alcohol…
The principal, Professor Diaz, is ready to drop Vegas into a slower-paced magic class. But Vegas would rather die, Houdini-style, in a botched escape act than have to suffer through “remedial magic.”
After all, Vegas only came to Absolution Academy, school for the “Paranormal Sciences,” to learn a spell that would bring his girlfriend, Katherine, back from the DEAD.
Unfortunately, now that his tuition’s been paid, he finds that resurrecting the dead is an act of Godslaughter–a forbidden form of magic–and at Absolution Academy, an illegal activity.
But “illegal” is a funny word… one among many that Vegas doesn’t seem to know the meaning of…
