Season's Bleedings, a Christmas Novella by Cristelle Comby

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Unless hobgoblins are crawling out of tunnels and threatening kids…


Private detective Bellamy Vale can’t seem to shake the ghosts of Christmas past. Less than a year after the loss of his wife and child, he whittles away his near-immortal life as Lady McDeath’s little helper, ridding the streets of unearthly scum. So when he rescues a girl from a grubby hobgoblin’s claws, he knows it’s up to him to hunt it down before one pest becomes an infestation.

After losing the pesky beast in a building under construction, he discovers a maze of subterranean tunnels crisscrossed with cables and computers. And the only way to track down the creature is to team up with the geeky, cherub-faced business owner who Vale suspects knows more about the supernatural than he’s letting on.

Can Vale exterminate the pint-sized hellion before it wreaks havoc on the holidays?

Season’s Bleedings is a Christmas special prequel novella in the electrifying Vale Investigation urban fantasy series. If you like noir-style detectives, mythical creatures, and butt-kicking action, then you’ll love Cristelle Comby’s pulse-pounding Yuletide tale.

October Days by Mike Donohue

What do you see in the dark?

Who are your ghosts?


Ten stories linked by the growing darkness of October. And the promise of danger lurking around the next corner.

In a “Wolf on the Hill” a woman becomes obsessed with a little girl outside her window. Does she need help? Or would that be a big mistake?

In “The Midnight Game” three girls take an interest in a ritual found in an old book. Salt, matches, an old door. They think it’s just harmless fun until they meet the midnight man.

In “How to Buy a Shovel” a man has created an intricate set of rules that he hopes will get his life back on track. And get away with murder.

October is when the days grow shorter and in the long twilight nothing is quite as it first appears.

October is a time of darkness and death when the imagination can reach out and show you your own worst fears.

A little magical mischief never hurt anyone until a love potion goes terribly wrong.

Magic, Mischief, and Kilts!

A modern-day Scottish paranormal romance by NYT Bestselling Author Michelle M. Pillow.

“A mesmerizing and magical read!”

From the Highlands of Scotland to the valleys of Wisconsin…

Erik MacGregor is from a line of ancient (and mischievous) Scottish warlocks. He isn’t looking for love. After centuries of bachelorhood, it’s not even a consideration… until he moves in next door to Lydia Barratt. It’s clear the beauty wants nothing to do with him, but he’s drawn to her and determined to win her over.

The last thing Lydia needs is an alpha male type meddling in her private life. Just because he’s gorgeous, wealthy, and totally rocks a kilt doesn’t mean she’s going to fall for his seductive charms.

Humans aren’t supposed to know about his family’s magic or the fact he’s a cat shifter. It’s better if mortals don’t know the paranormal exists. But when a family prank goes terribly wrong, causing Erik to succumb to a love potion, Lydia becomes the target of his sudden and embarrassingly obsessive behavior.

They’ll have to find a way to pull Erik out of the spell fast when it becomes clear that Lydia has more than a lovesick warlock to worry about.

Dragon Shapeshifter Sci Fi Paranormal Romance The original Dragon Lords series’ Anniversary Edition by NYT Bestselling Author, Michelle M. Pillow.

Breaking up is hard to do…

Going undercover at a mass wedding as a bartered bride, Morrigan Blake has every intention of getting off the barbaric alien planet just as soon as the ceremony over. Or, more correctly, just as soon as she captures footage of the mysterious princes rumored to be in attendance.

After a euphoric night, Morrigan discovers her ride left without her and an alien dragon shifter is claiming she’s his wife. It’s not exactly the story this reporter had in mind. And to make matters worse, the all-to-seductive alpha male refuses to take no for an answer.

Being cursed by the gods was never so frustrating…

Prince Ualan is prepared to follow dragon shifter tradition and marry the woman revealed to him during the marriage festival. When the stubborn, yet achingly sexy, Morrigan refuses to accept their shared fate, it is all he can do to keep from acting like the barbarian she accuses him of being.

About the Dragon Lords Series

The dragon-shifting alien princes have no problem with commitment. In one night, these alpha males will meet and choose their fated mates in a simplistic ceremony involving the removing of masks and the crushing of crystals. With few words spoken and the shortest, most bizarre courtship in history, they will bond to their women forever.

Some say the dead don’t talk, but I know better.


I’m Luc Stockhelm, and I speak from personal experience. I’m ready to do whatever it takes to shut Alarbus’s mouth and get some sleep. Little did I know this encounter would lead me into a secret society of investigators, and that I would be involved in a supernatural murder case.

I’m Alarbus, a name which appears to suit me but in a rather morbid sense. Luc can do whatever he wants to rid me, that’s fine, because that’s exactly what I want, so he had better consider his options carefully. Another thing to point out is Luc’s a lot of brawn, not much going on elsewhere if you know my meaning.

Go on and have a gander, see what’s happening behind that cover but don’t wait too long, that’ll get you in trouble.

Little Red Riding Hood is heading back into the woods to meet the big bad wolves …
But she’s not little anymore.

My name is Helena Basque. When I was seven years old, I was attacked by a savage wolf that killed my Grand’Mere and left me with triple scars across my face. It also left me with endless nightmares of the wolf that stood upright and spoke to me.
I’m sixteen now, and I know it was no wolf. Nor was it alone. A pack of those creatures now threaten my family and everyone else here in La Rue Sauvage. Since no one will stand up to defend our province, I will hunt down the wolves myself. To stop them, I must do things I never planned to do, and become something I never planned to become.
For several years, I’ve trained myself to hunt and to fight and to show no fear. I have donned a red hood and cloak like the one I was forbidden to wear in childhood, to show them that at least one person is fighting back. I’ve armed myself with a repeating crossbow and other assorted weapons, and I refuse to stop or slow down until I destroy every last one of those wolves … whatever they actually are.

Come along for the ride.
