Immortal Black Dragons
Enukara Series #2
By Nina R. Schluntz


The black dragon, Zackariah, falters in his reign of terror when he falls in love with the most recent Enukara, all of whom he's previously murdered.

Zackariah created an Enukara back when they were being made every day, and murdered hours later. Despite the odds, he managed to keep his alive long enough to understand how compassionate humans can be. Decades later, he meets his Enukara's son, Jonas, and finds that he is now an Enukara. Zackariah must decide if he will tell him the truth behind his mother's death, even if it risks the relationship forming between them.

Jonas knows Zackariah murdered his mother. He can accept this, but not the swirling lies around the reason why he did it. If he makes the same error it will lead to not only his death, but the death of all the Enukaras, present and future.

Scandalous Lies
The Canes Inlet Mystery, Book 1
By Adam Carpenter


A secret rocks Noah Sanders' life, sending him back to a coastal town he never knew, one in which he may have been stolen from.

In a tiny Adirondack village, a secret is about to be exposed. Noah Sanders learns from his mother—on her deathbed—that he is not who he thought. Suddenly, the unassuming Noah finds his entire life called into question, and only he can separate the truth from the lies.

He'd been given one clue: his real name. But what is the reason for his abduction from the family he should have known. The coastal paradise called Cane's Inlet is where Noah finds himself, trying to keep a low profile as he quietly begins his investigation. But Demetri, a sexy diner owner, catches his attention almost immediately, as does the local police chief when Noah stumbles across a corpse on the beach.

Cane's Inlet is known for its sunny shores, the lush waves of the ocean. But a deeper mystery lies beneath the surface, and Noah is the unwitting key to unraveling a long-held truth. Insinuating himself into the ways of the locals, Noah learns of the feud between the founding family, the Canes, and to the rich newcomers, the Hatchers. With no one to trust, Noah tries to fight his attraction to Demetri, all while desperately trying to keep secret his reason for coming to town.

SCANDALOUS LIES is the first part in a trilogy that will lay bare stories of the past, and in the end, no one will escape the web of deceit that has defined Cane's Inlet for more than one hundred years. Scandalous, sinister, suspicious, the Cane's Inlet Mystery is a tour-de-force tale of two families, one secret, and, ultimately, one man's discovery of his own true self.
