Publication date: February 1st 2022
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

All’s fair in love and…whatever this is.

This Valentine’s Day, when a cupid accidentally shoots himself with his own arrow, he falls for a siren whose only job is to lure men to their deaths.

Charismatic and irresistibly fun, Chance Eroson is a cupid who gets a kick from pairing odd couples and being right about them. Used to getting his way, the only person who shuts him down is the siren who has ruined more than one of his pairings before they started. But his bigger problem is he wants her. He’s always wanted her.

Elodie Sirenian uses her power for good, only hunting evil men. But after so long, and so many horrible people, her cynicism has settled deep inside. She can turn on the charm when she doesn’t mean it, and they fall for it. Every single one. Every single time.

Except Chance. He’s the only person—man or god—who has ever challenged her.

But a cupid’s magic is temporary. There’s no way a true love match is possible. Not this time.

“Who are you after?” she asked. She even used a pleasant tone of voice.

He stepped in closer, spinning her stool so she faced the bar, then closer still. Not touching, but she could feel the heat of him, the length of him, at her back. He leaned down to put his lips to her ear. “Him,” he said in a low voice.

It had been a long time since a simple whisper had turned her on. She saw the worst in men. Even if she didn’t kill them, she could still read their auras. Their lust with no emotion. Their aggression. Their manipulation. All of which made it difficult to rev her engines. So the fact that her nipples tightened, pressing against the silk demi-cup of her bra was…distracting to say the least.

“That’s not helpful,” she said dryly. “As usual.”

His chuckle didn’t help the nipple situation any, sending a surge of warmth cascading through her.

“Three-piece suit.” Chance picked up her glass. “The one who just bought you a drink. Although, if he has his eye on you, it might make my job matching him a tad more difficult.”

Elodie’s muscles unknotted slightly. At least she wasn’t going to have to argue him out of this one.

“With who?” Curiosity popped the words out of her mouth before she could stop herself.

“Banana yellow shirt in the back corner.”

She searched behind three-piece-suit and found the woman in question. Not only was the lady’s shirt bright yellow, but so was her aura. Elodie smiled despite herself.

“I take it you approve?” he asked.

How did he know? He was standing behind her.

“Otherwise, you’d immediately argue.”

How did he do that? She knew a cupid could read the minds of humans—helped with the job—but he couldn’t do that to her or other supernaturals. But the laughter in his voice told her he’d still managed to read her reaction regardless, and knew she’d be irritated about it. He didn’t know that the irritation was because it meant he knew her better than she wanted. Dangerous to let him that close.

“Stay very still,” he said next.

Elodie frowned and started to turn, except a glittering golden bow and arrow appeared at her side, arrow already nocked.

He had to be joking. “Here?” she drawled. “You’re going to shoot them in a busy bar? Really?”

“They’re lined up perfectly. I couldn’t have picked a better shot.” His voice was harder now. Focused. Sexy. If that’s how he sounded in bed…

She shook off the thought.

“Hurry up.” She had her own job to deal with.

“You don’t rush love, baby girl.”

“Call me baby girl, again, lover,” she snapped. “I dare you.”

No answer to that. She wished she could see Chance’s face.

Not Paid Eleven Cents an Hour to Think


Memoir (Military)

Date Published: January 22, 2022 (Hardcover coming March 2022)

Publisher: Acorn Publishing

Jim Gibson was flying to the other side of the world, barreling toward what he feared could be the end of his life. In 1968, five hundred American soldiers were dying every week in Vietnam. Outfitted in brand new, scratchy, combat jungle fatigues and boots, the twenty-year-old Army Private and trained Combat Medic found himself on a plane to a place he had never been, to fight a war he didn’t believe in. Young men like him were being drafted against their will every day, called into a war that made no sense to them. Vietnam, they thought, was a war orchestrated by relics; old white men and corrupt politicians willing to expend countless lives for personal gain. Still, it was no use to resist. There was nowhere to go, and the FBI made sure there was no place to hide.

About the Author

Jim Gibson was born in Santa Barbara, California in 1948. Growing up he was fascinated by the world around him, a curiosity that drove his love of reading at a young age. He has carried this passion for reading and desire for understanding throughout his whole life. In Not Paid Eleven Cents an Hour to Think, Jim recalls his fourteen months in Vietnam as an Army Medic and ambulance driver. In exploring his past and the lessons he learned, he considers what we must do to carry on. Mr. Gibson, now a happily retired grandfather, occasionally teaches abstract painting and other art classes in his community. He resides in Orange County, California.

Cover Reveal

Doctor Heartless by J. Saman

J. Saman has revealed the
cover for Doctor Heartless!

Releasing March 7, 2022

He's cruel. Insufferably attractive. And broken beyond redemption.

After the nightmare I just ran from, those details should have made him the perfect storm of do not touch. Except I didn't know any of this–other than the attractive part—when I met him.  
Our story started on a lie.

He pretended to be someone else, and I didn't ask a lot of questions. Nor did I try to stop him when he snuck out of my hotel room in the wee hours of the morning. I was determined to start my new life on an uptick and a wild one-night with a hot stranger felt like just the ticket.

Only I should have known something that good wouldn't end that easy.

On my first night in my new house, our paths cross again when I discover he's my new neighbor. No longer the charming man I met in the bar, he's a grump, completely unfriendly, and utterly intolerable. As if this couldn't get any worse, I quickly learn I'm also his daughter's new teacher.

A wonderful daughter I can't help but fall in love with.

Something I refuse to do with him. Our button-pushing back and forth never fails to get under my skin. If anything, his sudden off-limits status makes resisting this devil of a single dad that much easier.

Regardless of the temptation he presents. How searing his heated gaze is when I catch him staring. Or how breathless our stolen moments leave us.

After all, this is the fresh start I so desperately need, and I will not let anything get in my way.

No. I can't give in to Doctor Heartless. No matter how hard he tries to change my mind.

The Seduction of Pretty Lies by Holly Renee

He was leaving regardless, and I couldn’t hang on tight enough for the both of us.

The Seduction of Pretty Lies, the first book of an all-new emotionally charged duet from Holly Renee is available now!

Devoted. Loyal. Shameless. The Boys of Clermont Bay had been my protectors for as long as I could remember.

And Olly Warner took the job to heart.

He was intense and all-consuming, and I had been in love with him for years.

Alarmingly handsome and recklessly charming, he attempted to deny there was ever anything between us.

But we slipped over that invisible line, and the moment we gave in, something fractured.

He was leaving regardless, and I couldn’t hang on tight enough for the both of us.

Olly had always been the boy I could never have, but I couldn’t help losing myself in him.

A searing affair, the guarantee of a broken heart, and the desperation of careless promises.

Olly and I were never meant to be, and we had become nothing more than a pretty lie.

Two Years Earlier

God, she was so pretty. 

I clenched my hand at my side to avoid reaching out and touching her. 

She was also too young for me and she was my best friend’s little sister, but neither of those things seemed to matter when I was looking at her. 

I was always looking at her, but she was looking at him. 

Lucas grinned at her from across the table, and a soft blush bloomed across her cheeks. He was one of my best friends too, but I wanted to kill him when he looked at her like that. My stomach hardened as I watched them. I knew I didn’t have the right. She wasn’t mine, but for some reason, she felt like it. 

She had felt like it for far longer than I liked to admit. 

“What are you up to today, Frankie?” 

She pulled her attention away from Lucas long enough to look over at me. “Not a whole lot. I thought I might go for a swim before the party tonight. You’re going, right?” 

“Yeah.” I nodded. “I’ll be there.” 

“Good.” She smiled at me as she leaned against her hand. “What about you, Lucas? Are you going to be there?” 

I clenched my teeth as I waited for his response. He always treated Frankie as if she wasn’t important. He treated her like she wasn’t the most important person in the room even though she looked at him like he was the most crucial thing in her life. 

“Of course.” He rubbed his hands together as he talked, but he was barely looking at her. “I need to get fucked up or laid tonight.” 

Frankie’s shoulder slumped the smallest bit, and she looked away before either of us could see her face. 

A face I knew she was attempting to school to hide her hurt. 

“Real classy, Lucas.” I rolled my eyes because even though I had been friends with Lucas for what felt like forever, I still didn’t see what Frankie saw in him. I was beginning to wonder why I was friends with him at all. “Come on, Frankie. Let’s go hit the beach before the party.”

“Okay.” She nodded and stood from her seat. “Let me grab my suit.” 

As soon as she left the kitchen, Lucas leaned back in his chair and chuckled. 

“What the fuck is wrong with you?” I glared at him. 

“What’s wrong with you?” He laughed harder. “You look like a lovesick puppy over Beck’s little sister when you can get any pussy you want in the entire school. Don’t let a piece of ass make you look so pathetic.” 

“Don’t fucking talk about her like that.” My pulse was racing as I clenched my fists at my sides. “You have no idea…” 

“What are you assholes talking about?” Beck interrupted us as he walked into the kitchen and grabbed an apple off the island. 

“Trying to get Olly laid.” Lucas smirked, and my fingers tingled with the urge to knock it off his face. 

“It’s about damn time.” Beck wrapped an arm over my shoulder and laughed. “You’ve been a little tense.” 

“Fuck you both.” I shrugged Beck off me just as Frankie came back around the corner. She was wearing a simple black bikini, but I couldn’t look away. 

“Hey, you ready?” She held a towel against her stomach, and I watched as her eyes flashed over to Lucas before looking back at me. 

“Yeah. Let’s go.” I opened the back door and waited for her to walk through. This was Frankie’s house, but I felt like I knew it as well as my own. I practically lived here most days. Frankie walked in front of me, and I stared at the soft slope of her back as she pushed through the back gate and out onto the sand.

Centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, in the era of the glorious High Republic, the Jedi are the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy!

After a series of staggering losses, the Republic seems to finally have the villainous Nihil marauders on the run, and it looks like there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Until word comes of a suspected Nihil attack on the industrial cosmopolitan world of Corellia, right in the Galactic Core.

Sent to investigate are Jedi Masters Cohmac Vitus and Kantam Sy, along with Padawans Reath Silas and Ram Jomaram, all fighting their own private battles after months of unrelenting danger. On Corellia, Reath and Ram encounter a brazen young security specialist named Crash, whose friend was one of the victims of the Nihil attack, and they team up with her to infiltrate Corellia’s elite while the Masters pursue more diplomatic avenues. But going undercover with Crash is more dangerous than anyone expected, even as Ram pulls in his friend Zeen to help with an elaborate ruse involving a galactic pop star.

But what they uncover on Corellia turns out to be just one part of a greater plan, one that could lead the Jedi to their most stunning defeat yet….

INSOMNIAC DUET by Persephone Autumn

 INSOMNIAC DUET by Persephone Autumn is coming soon!  

Restless Night releases March 15!


I loathe Micah Reed. Yet, I can’t keep my eyes off him.


Years ago, he opened his mouth in a room full of our peers. Said nine words and ruined my life.

My high school crush did exactly that… crushed me.


But I am no longer the quiet, loner girl from high school. The girl who let others trample her spirit.

No, I take charge. Stand tall. Bend to no one. Never again.

Especially Micah Reed.


Peyton Alexander makes me question my sanity. Yet, I refuse to stop antagonizing her.


Since her first day at work, she has given me the death glare. Lipped off and verbally slapped me.

And every night, I go back for another round.


Not sure what I did to deserve her animosity, but I plan to find out. Plan to fix whatever mistake I made.

Although I live for her banter, I want more with Peyton. The attention she gives other men, I want it for myself.

Call me presumptuous, but Peyton Alexander will be mine.


Micah wants me because I don’t fall for his charms.

Peyton resists to deny herself the truth.


Will he ever figure out who I am?

Will she ever let me in?

Meet Persephone Autumn 

Persephone lives in sunny Florida with her wife, crazy dog, and two lover-boy cats, and she’s never far from her daughter or grandpup. 

She’s an avid lover of ethnic food, especially Asian, and has fun discovering ways to veganize her favorite non-vegan foods. 

If given the option, she would get lost in nature on purpose. 

For several years, she’s always done some form of writing. After pairing her poetry with images and posting them on social media, she received peer praise and started her novel writing journey.

Although her core style is romance, Persephone dips her toes in other genres from time to time. All stories deserve for their voice to be heard and she plans to write where the characters lead her.
