When dealing with the latest supernatural threat to the town, however, Alexus quickly realizes that the real threat is something far darker and more deadly than it first appears.
When Josiah is attacked, Alexus goes after his abductors and uncovers the true evil. But in trying to save Josiah, will his own life be forfeit?

It's been nearly a year since Henry Graham's brother and wife passed away and he took custody of their daughter, Brenna. He never thought he'd be a parent, much less to a grieving eight year-old girl, and Brenna proves to be almost more than he can handle. Her willful personality and stubborn temper drive away nannies almost faster than he can hire them, and Henry's nearly at his wit's end. When the most recent nanny shows up for the job, Henry is as equally appalled by the fact that it's a man as he is by the tattoos up and down his arms. Before either of them know it, Michael Anders is filling gaps in their lives that they didn't know they had, and no matter how unprofessional it is, he can't deny the attraction he feels for his nanny.

A plan for a chocolaty surprise Valentine’s gift goes horribly, if not hysterically, awry as David tricks his boyfriend, Jay, into posing for an erotic mold—which is not at all easy to do when your boyfriend doesn’t know he’s posing for it. Not easy, no, but certainly fun, especially when it’s cast in the middle of the woods on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Though when the gift eventually arrives, wrapped in red silk, it’s not sent to the right house, nor eaten by the intended recipient. Still, these two have enough love, if not certain large appendages, to share, and it’s a happy Valentine’s Day ending for everyone, just the same.
