After Midnight - Stories of Mystery and the Macabre

“Anything can happen in the dark…” After Midnight is a collection of gothic short stories based on the folk legends and cautionary tales of the unknown that were collected in Britain by missing author Sidney Wainwright.

From sinister unsolved murders or the exploits of slavers to the realms of the supernatural, and the mysteries of the human mind, these tales heighten the senses and take you back to those childhood fears that we are all drawn to once again when the lights go out.The tales are presented from a rediscovered manuscript by Sidney Wainwright’s friend Archibald Jerome along with his recollections of the illusive man himself, who is perhaps a deeper mystery than any of the stories. Sidney Wainwright’s whereabouts and fate remain a mystery to this day. So sit by the hearth on a dark and stormy night. Read yourself a story or two by firelight. Try to forget the sense that someone is there with you, watching, always just out of sight. I warn you, once the clock chimes midnight, there is no knowing how this tale will end.

Killer Deals: Savannah Martin Mysteries 1 & 2

Collection of the first two USA Today bestselling Savannah Martin mysteries.“The hilarious dialog and the tension between Savannah and Rafe will delight fans of chick-lit mysteries and romantic suspense.” Jo Ann Vicarel, Library JournalSavannah Martin has always been a good girl, doing what was expected and fully expecting life to fall into place in its turn. But when her perfect husband turns out to be a lying, cheating slimeball, Savannah kicks him to the curb and embarks on life on her own terms. With a new apartment, a new career, and a brand new outlook on life, she’s all set to take the world by storm. If only the world would stop throwing her curveballs... A CUTTHROAT BUSINESS - #1 Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.HOT PROPERTY - #2When Savannah Martin’s fellow Realtor and friend Lila Vaughn is robbed during an open house, Savannah rushes to the rescue with tea and sympathy, or at least a really good lunch and a shoulder to cry on. However, Lila seems more peeved than distraught, and her main gripe is that the sexy robber who tied her to a kitchen chair—for her own good—didn’t follow her suggestion to tie her to the bed instead.Lila’s description of the man fits Savannah’s old school-mate Rafael Collier to a T. Rafe has recently turned up in Savannah’s life again, and he isn’t above doing a little breaking and entering. Metro Nashville Homicide Detective Tamara Grimaldi is of the same opinion, and when Lila turns up dead, tied to her bed and strangled, Rafe becomes a suspect.Now Savannah must get busy finding the real murderer before Detective Grimaldi can arrest the wrong man.
