MISSION MISTLETOE
by Lori Avocato

When an Air Force nurse falls out of a helicopter (don't even ask!) she thinks that's the worse that could happen.  That is, until the paratrooper who parachutes into the desert to save her is none other than the cocky-as-hell guy with jet black hair, Newman blue eyes, and teeth she's convinced are Da Vinci porcelain -- because no one was born with such a perfect smile -- she's been calling "Slick." Sure, he's a damn good looker, but he'd been following her around the base for weeks -- and now falls from the sky with a sprig of Mistletoe in his pocket!

"Fans of Evanovich are sure to enjoy this funny, fast-paced series (The Pauline Sokol Mystery Series, featuring an ex-nurse turned medical insurance fraud investigator who always gets her man!"   
LISA GARDNER

Lori Avocato is a rare voice among mystery writers, a master of character and plot who proves that a sleuth's best weapon is often a laugh. In The Stiff and the Dead, she turns the world medical fraud on its head, offering a look behind the scenes that only someone with her background could offer. This is an outrageous romp of a novel; a laugh and a shiver - a book I just couldn't put down. When the prescription is mystery, no one is any better at serving up the cure.   
CHRISTOPHER WHITCOMB Ex-FBI agent, NYTIMES bestselling novelist.

NIP, TUCK, DEAD is fun, fresh, and fabulous!  Lori Avocato's newest book mixes healthy doses of laughter, sexual tension . . .  and murder.  If you haven't already fallen in love with Pauline, Goldie, and the gang, this book will do it.  Diagnosis:  fantastic!
- ALESIA HOLLIDAY, author of BLONDES HAVE MORE FELONS

TIED WITH A BOW
By Anne Elizabeth

According to EOD Specialist Captain Devin Walds, love and bombs have a lot in common.  First, it is vital to know the inner and outer workings of both.  Second, understanding when and how to get the job done is absolutely crucial.  Third, believing it is worth risking your life is mandatory.  For Kathryn Marie Pente, he would do anything.  From the first moment he saw her, he knew she was extraordinary.  It wasn't just her unusual artistic talent or her daring beauty, this was a woman who fought for what was right, and she was worth living...and dying for.

 I'm seriously impressed with Anne Elizabeth's sizzling sensuous prose.  Can't wait to see more from this talented new author.”

THE STOCKING
by DC DeVane

Marcy Grayson had been in love with Paul Callahan for years.  She'd dreamed of a proposal, a ring, and a happily-ever-after since the day she first met him.  The winter holidays always brought out the romantic in her, and in him, but how could she possibly have guessed that love—and a 'Proposal Paul Style'—would involve a dog, a rubber raft, and the Army Rangers.
