Tabitha Grimaldi never expected her life to look like this. Thirty-two and recently divorced. She also never expected to become a cosplaying star and need the services of a bodyguard.

Archie Stryker wasn’t living. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to do after getting out of the military. He didn’t want to get out; they recommended it. When one of his buddies from his former unit starts a protection agency, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get a fresh start.

He was ready for his first mission until he found out who it was for. The childhood friend he always wished he’d pursued something with. She was the one that got away. But last he heard, she was married.

She needs a different bodyguard. Anyone but him. Can she keep her secret from him? The one that she always loved but knew would never think of her in that way. He was her best friend for the longest time.

The only rule the agency really has is not to get personal with the client. It should be simple. He should have let one of the other guys have this assignment, but he couldn’t afford to let one of them get close to her. Not when he still feels this way about her.

Can you keep a secret from the one that got away?

Can you keep a secret to not ruin a friendship?

Sometimes secrets are needed to not lose someone.


A.R. Hall has always loved to share stories. She often got in trouble when she was little by making up stories she shouldn’t have. She is a full-time mom, wife, and creator.


A.R. Hall writes mostly paranormal and fantasy romance. She loves telling a story that makes you say “that was weird and hot”.

Title: Reigniting Chase
Author: Jeanne St. James
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2022
Cover Design: Golden Czermak @ FuriousFotog

“Absolutely beautiful book…Jeanne St. James has done it again. The pure raw emotion in this book will take your breath away from the very beginning.” ★★★★★ Amazon Review
An unexpected collaboration between two authors that’s hot enough to spark a fire…

After an excruciating loss, I’m desperate for a fresh start.
Away from the painful memories.
Away from everyone I know and anyone who knows my story.
That’s how I end up in Eagle’s Landing, Pennsylvania.
As a bestselling author, my main reason for moving to a remote mountain cabin is to overcome the writer’s block that crushed my creativity for the past two years. My hope is to rediscover my words in the quiet, small town where no one knows me. Or my past.
A place where I can blend in enough that I become invisible.

Even though Chase, one of my favorite authors, insists he wants to be left alone, I refuse to let him wallow in whatever’s drowning him.
As a local bookstore owner and author myself, I’m intrigued by the man who’s a master of the written word. Unfortunately, his social skills could use a lot of work.
Even so, I’m determined to pull the irritable and frustrating man out of the dark pit he’s fallen into and back to the surface, no matter how hard he fights it. I only hope dragging Chase down that fiery path just might reignite his spark and that I don’t get burned in the process.

Note: Please check the content warning before reading or purchasing. It can be found at the beginning of the book (accessible by Amazon’s “look inside” feature or by downloading the sample) as well as on my website. This standalone gay romance has a guaranteed HEA, no cheating and no cliffhanger.

Determined to secure his family’s financial future, Blake enlists the help of an old friend, tech billionaire and world-renowned whisky expert, Justin Coulter, to help him sell his grandpa’s “million-dollar moonshine.”
Everything is running smoothly until a shocking discovery rocks Blake’s world. The whisky is stolen and his caretaker is murdered. And worse, his wife is missing.
In a frantic race against time, the lines of trust blur. Blake’s friends and enemies — and maybe even his wife — are not who he thought they were. And the technology, money and global control at stake have now drawn disreputable foreign powers into the mix.
Is there anyone who he can trust — and who has crossed the line that can never be uncrossed?

The call changed everything.

The call ordering me to stand down. I stood, walking in circles, the rage stiffening my neck, eyes drawn to my gun safe. I paced toward it, then shuffled back. They had kidnapped my wife, intent on destroying me. But I didn’t know who or why.

I had held a gun many times in the last decade, but not since protecting the US Secretary of State several years ago. It was the first and only time I killed anyone. I’d never completely recovered. I hated guns, hated killing, until now. Sometimes killing was necessary. Grandpa had taught me that. And I would again if that’s what it took to get Rebecca back.

Approaching the safe, I removed the Glock 17 and 26. The only thing that mattered was rescuing Rebecca.

Our sons needed their mother, I needed my wife, and would do anything to find her or die trying.

Hi! I’m Monica. I write romance, not just any romance, though. I write romance that feels real and deep and has other fun and exciting elements to it. I love including other genres in my romance stories like action, suspense, and crime.

It all started with my love of reading. My mom used to read to me every night. I can’t remember a time in my childhood when she didn’t, until I became a rebellious teenager of course! This love of reading eventually morphed into wanting to create my own stories. I fell in love with writing at a young age. I started with fanfiction at the age of 12 and have been writing ever since.

As I’ve read other’s stories and have written my own, I’ve found it can be easy to let characters fall into societal stereotypes. I feel this is especially easy with female characters. They can so often fall into the Mary-Sue type and be perfect with no flaws or sharp edges or, you know, real personalities. Here’s what I aim to bring to you. Real, messed up, flawed, angry, hurt, traumatized characters.

As a victim of trauma myself, I aim to bring a real-life feel to my characters and stories. While this all may sound sad or morbid, that’s not all I bring to the table I assure you. These characters are also strong and independent despite their pasts, like so many of us are. Take a look at my work and see if you can relate or be inspired by the words on the pages, because you are strong and amazing and a survivor too!

Come on in and join a fantastic community focused on love, support, and equality. Your comments help keep me inspired and motivated! So, if you’ve got anything to say, say it! Thank you so much for being part of everything here. There are plenty of ways that you can become more involved. You can add me on Facebook and follow me on TikTok @monicamishogrems_author. Make sure to come say hi, I promise to respond!

For years, Azreya accepts her place as one cursed by the gods, but with foresight of an impending slaughter, she dares to attempt to reverse the Aztec people’s fate.


At the age of three, Azreya is placed in the care of a shaman, Nukpana, who promises to protect her. Servitude to the man who vowed to keep her dark side from emerging seemed a small price to pay until a special client visits. Azreya’s inner compass clashes with Nukpana’s wishes and her rage boils over.


With the demon just under the surface, she has no choice but to flee, only to find her own family refuses to take her in. Still unable to stand by and witness her people’s demise, Azreya pursues a quest to enlighten them. She faces many challenges—not the least of which is the monster hiding under her own skin.


Can Azreya control her inner beast and convince her people to break from age-old patterns, or will the Aztecs be vanquished by the enemy?


Journey back in time to unlock the secrets of the Aztec.

Title: A Girl Named Charlie
Author: Micki Fredericks
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: July 1, 2022
★★★★★ Amazon Review – “This was such a cute and fun and heartwarming story about journeys and destinations and real life situations.”
“If life was regulated by star ratings, I would be a one… maybe one and a half star.”
Single mom, Charlie, is trying to make it to the end of the week without another major catastrophe. Her day-to-day life is nothing what she expected it to be, and she doesn’t have time to figure out where everything went wrong. Keeping her head above water has proven to be harder than avoiding her ex-husband and his new girlfriend.
Topping the list of things she doesn’t have time for: laundry, balancing her bank account, and love.
But when dreamy Reid Fletcher, a handsome doctor from the city, moves into her little hometown of Blueberry Pointe, Charlie wonders if maybe her list is too long.
It seems the sexy doctor is determined to find a way into Charlie’s life, even if that means jumping into the eye of the storm and making her struggles his own.
Until life happens, tragedy strikes, and everything takes an all too familiar nose dive.
Can Charlie see through her brokenness and find her way back to happiness? Or will she do what she’s always done and put everyone else’s happiness before her own?
No one knows exactly how this will turn out, especially not… A girl named Charlie.

Her other hobbies include wrestling with her two American Bulldog rescues, Ozzy and Luna, or begging her cat, Cora, for attention.
Micki is obsessed with growly alphas and the strong women who set them free.
