In Too Deep by Kathryn Shay

IN TOO DEEP is the first novella in Shay’s powerful, new anthology, AMERICA’S BRAVEST. (All six novellas are available in a boxed set.)

In the Hidden Cove Fire Department, Gabe Malvaso is a favorite among firefighters. He’s tough, fair, has a good sense of humor and loves his work. But for eighteen months, he’s avoided a member of his crew, Firefighter Rachel Wellington, despite his knife-sharp attraction to her. She is also drawn to him but is equally determined to keep things professional between them--until they’re trapped in a basement for a day, thinking they’ll never be rescued. Then, their feelings for each other explode like the building around them.

Independence Day: Book 1 by Bex Aaron

This volume is part one of a five-part story.

“Something is wrong with this town…”

On the surface, Haven Park seemed to be the perfect picture of Americana. Nestled in the heart of Wyoming, its 517 residents were close knit, hard working and God fearing people. The city had never known major scandal, and the last violent crime committed was over ten years ago. Normal, right and honorable were upheld and all seemed to be quite harmonious…until the night of July 4, 1966, when the walls came closing in and the secrets could not be kept any longer.

It started with a murder. Carol Mathison, a lifelong resident and the only daughter of retired police chief Stanley Rogers, was found strangled in the park on the morning of July 5, leaving the community stunned. By all accounts, Carol was vibrant, well liked, outgoing and cheerful – making her murder all the more senseless. However, as the days drug by, more and more began to be revealed about Carol’s darker side…and the many, many people who might have wanted her dead.

The killer is closer than they know…

Introducing the Richest Family in America by David Drum

High in the hills above fashionable Montecito, California, slipping in and out of their mansions on Swizzle Stick Road, a ridiculously wealthy family is under seige. A crooked lawyer, a beautiful Chinese pro golfer, and a celebrity-crazed plastic surgeon conspire to convince a wealthy family's clueless old patriarch to move his factories to China. As the conspiracy clicks into place, the pro golfer romances the old billionaire across Europe. But their romp from Paris to Shanghai catches the attention of the black sheep of the family, and he intuitively reacts. An interior decorator and recovering alcoholic who is also subject to panic attacks, he bravely sashays into the fray. Anxiously warding off attacks from his eccentric older sisters, the family's youngest son sets out to organize the Cleveland factory workers, while the family's unscrupulous son-in-laws throw everything they have at him. What follows is a brutally funny comedy of grandoise intentions, half-baked revenge, disjointed romance, and heroic upper crust foolishness. Introducing the Richest Family in America runs a hilarious gauntlet of greed, betrayal and desire while America's richest family teeters precariously on the edge of dissolution and fights like a pack of mad dogs to sort their pressing issues out.
