Desperation Falls by Rich Bullock

A year after surviving a shocking attack, former Los Angeles cable TV carpenter Lena Blaylock buys some dilapidated fishing cabins on the shore of Storm Lake on California’s Central Coast and fixes them up as rentals. It’s the fulfillment of a dream, and a chance to build a new life free of her violent past. But she never intended sharing this unique setting with mysterious ex-lawman Alex Stone, or damaged teenage runaway Teal Kinshaw.

And she especially didn’t plan on sharing Desperation Falls Camp with a dead body.

As the hot summer progresses, Teal becomes a vital part of Lena’s life. And, after few barbecues under the stars together, Stone rises several notches from irritating to intriguing.

But when Lena and Teal unwittingly expose information from Lena’s past, it triggers a murder attempt on a friend in Los Angeles. Then a local girl at the lake disappears. Are they connected? Teal’s own past might be a critical key, but only if she reveals all her ugly secrets. She could lose her new boyfriend, and the by-the-book local sheriff will throw her back into foster care.

Lena and Stone must figure out the connections, because everyone she loves—everything she’s built—is in danger.

Desperation Falls is now on Kindle

BookBlurb: Only Lycans Need Apply by Michele Bardslay

When I found the ancient tomb of the two most powerful vampires in history, I knew I was in for a lot of trouble….

But archaeologists like me, Moira Jameson, are ready for trouble. Okay, maybe not human-species-threatening trouble. Or the kind of trouble that arrives in the form of a sexy werewolf named Drake. Yeah. Werewolf. And I thought ancient curses and walking corpses were a joke. Um…not so much.
