The Butterfly Healer by Muffy Wilson

Can strangers hide in secret, as dark things, to be loved between the shadow and the soul?

Oliver Brainard, an insurance actuary, is a man who has experienced love from only one woman—his mother. He has never loved, nor lived, outside the confines of his brownstone. He, as a middle-aged man, is the man few people see and fewer people even acknowledge. He is the quiet one who, bound by his deformity, always finishes last.

New to the neighborhood and curious by nature, Victoria Blakely is an avid collector. She has been watching Oliver for weeks from her upstairs window. She witnessed a crippled man, crushed by time and denial, resigned to his physical plight who is apparently content with his circumstances. Never touched by kindness or love, his life has never been lived.

He is perfect. Can Victoria awaken the freedom in Oliver to escape his self-imposed shackles for the bondage of love? Or will his painful fear deny her the pleasures of unfurling his life poised above the precipice of pleasure?

This is the story of how strangers become healers, knitting lives together with love and trust, restoring hope and discovering passion through a timeless and sometimes perilous innocent freedom—the freedom of butterflies.

Dangerous Bliss!

Bad Medicine by Red L. Jameson

Nurse Ian Ryder, or just Ryder, is everything I want. He’s big. He’s tough. He’s oh-so-sexy with his leather jacket and motorcycle that I’ve had indecent fantasies about. And even better, he seems emotionally closed off. Not the kind of man who would ask a lot of personal questions. The perfect candidate to reveal my secret—I’m still a virgin, worried I’ll die this way if I don’t do something about it soon. Somehow, I’m going to convince Ryder to play doctor with me.

Dr. Asha Whitetail is completely out of my league. Intelligent and sophisticated. And those glasses she wears makes me think about steaming up her scrubs. When an awkward moment turns into a hot kiss, I realize I’m going to do everything I can to have her—not just her body but her heart too. Problem is, she seems to want only one thing from me. So I’m going to make her an offer she can’t refuse. I’ll give her what she wants, if she spends time with me, gets to know me, the real me, while I do everything in my power to convince her she can play doctor with me…for life.

Chicks Dig Scars by Kathleen Grieve

When death steps in…

Committed and compassionate intensive care nurse, Rachel O’Dea, will do anything to save her patients. But when she loses a kind and loving man whom she forged a fatherly relationship with, Rachel unravels.

…or so everyone thinks.

The calm and soothing voices Rachel hears and the apparitions she sees are of the deceased man and his late wife as they navigate and persuade her to make important choices in her life, leading her right where she’s supposed to be.

Free clinic doctor, Devon Jameson, needs more hands on deck. He can’t possibly handle all the medical cases alone. When Rachel walks in, volunteering her services, he knows he has no choice other than to take her on board as she proves her worth when a pediatric trauma is left on his doorstep and there’s no one else to assist.

As the two begin working together, their lives intertwine and the attraction intensifies. Scarred deeply by their past and their pain, Rachel and Devon begin a future only angels could predict.

Dynamic Destiny by Angelica Dawson

Destiny lives a double life. Her days are spent as the mild-mannered, acquiescent administration assistant to Dr. Edgerton, but by night, she is Mistress D, the masked Domme that makes others squirm.

After a chance run-in with a high school friend, Jeremy Edgerton is introduced to the BDSM lifestyle. He quickly determines his place isn’t as a dominant, but submissive—specifically submitting to Mistress D.

Can they shift their fates enough to change their roles completely?

Paranormal Anatomy By Elvira Bathory

With tension increasing between the six specialists that make up the Supernatural Bio-Medicine Department at New Hope Hospital, Aleah Macleod continues to work closely with Dr. Morgan and her fiancé Wyatt Masterson. The feline shifter is more than ready to bring the entire team on board with their studies of her blood but the Director of Supernatural Bio-Medicine has his reasons why that’s not a good idea. And William Wolfe, an aggressive feline shifter, happens to be one of those reasons.

William has become obsessed with Aleah since they started working together, and since the announcement of her engagement to Wyatt became public things have become worse. Once he started rumors flying about how close she and Dr. Morgan were, the rest of the team regarded Aleah as ’the woman who slept her way into her position’ in the hospital. Trying to prove their theory wrong, she loses track of what is most important to her: her job and how to save the supernatural community.

Bound in Fire By Erzabet Bishop

The witch with the phoenix tattoo…

Isobel Fieri loves her dream job of working as an archivist in the city’s most prestigious museum. Well, aside from the creepy advances of her boss, that is. But when her mentor goes missing and a valuable exhibit piece vanishes into thin air, she knows something is very wrong. Bound by her desire to find answers, some really steamy flashbacks, and an attraction to a certain sexy fireman, opening weekend is about to get interesting.

He will find her again and protect her at all costs.

Roark Jameson has never forgotten the mate he loved and lost. He and his cat have pledged their lives to fighting fire, the very thing that took her from them. When he finds himself in front of the Remington Museum, he is drawn in to the mythology exhibit despite himself. A chance meeting will upend his universe and bring his carefully constructed world crashing down around him. Discovering his long lost mate here seems impossible, but when danger roams the hallowed halls of the museum, he must fight for her or lose her forever to the twisted web of fate.

A Werewolf State of Mind By Lucy Felthouse

Anneke’s typical day at the office is thrown into disarray when she finds her next patient is an unwitting werewolf. And it doesn’t end there.

From the moment Caleb Kitt walks into Doctor Anneke Lund’s office for his psychiatry session, she knows his problem isn’t mental. He’s been experiencing night terrors, having violent and bloodthirsty dreams, and waking up naked in strange places. But he’s not losing his mind, as he suspects. He’s actually a werewolf—he just doesn’t know it yet.

Anneke isn’t just a psychiatrist—she’s also an empath, meaning she can read minds, and influence thoughts and behavior. She rarely uses her powers, but recognizes she may have no other choice as Caleb must be convinced of his supernatural status before the next full moon arrives. When it does, though, she finds herself going way beyond her duty of care to ensure Caleb doesn’t hurt or kill anyone when he transforms. But at what cost?

Damaged by Liz Gavin

Who can heal the hero when he’s broken?

Smoke jumper Drew Collins has a lot to be angry about. His shrink says he’s damaged; his buddies at the base call him mad. To Drew, the only thing worth being tethered to is his parachute. Everything else comes at too high a cost. He knows it; he has paid that bill. Multiple times. At least that is what he tells himself until a sassy Brazilian neurosurgeon puts his beliefs in check.

Doctor Bruna Cordeiro has dedicated her life to erasing hurtful memories, while spreading hope with Doctors Without Borders. Yet, she has never forgotten. When fate reunites Bruna with a Syrian family now turned refugees, she will help them settle in the new country. She still believes spreading hope is the best way to mend damaged souls. Until a broken smoke jumper proves her wrong.

Just because something is broken, it doesn’t mean it can’t be fixed.

Grab this story filled with superheroes, second chances, and heartbreak to find out how two imperfect people find their way through heartache to embrace what could be their chance at happily-ever-after.

Before Tomorrow Comes by Lashell Collins

When you’re born into the mob, can you ever truly break free?

Jeremiah Tobin is a mob assassin. The world he comes from is sometimes ruthless, often dangerous, always lethal. It’s a place where dead presidents sit on the throne, and rules are made by whichever family wields the most fire power. A world where things like love and romance have no bearing, and might even get you killed. Or task you with killing the woman you love.

Dr. Monique Reed wants nothing to do with the mob life. She took an oath to do no harm, and made a personal vow to herself that the ugliness of her family’s business would never touch her life. That was before she fell in love with Jeremiah Tobin. Before she found herself sleeping with the enemy.

In a world where family trumps everything, and loyalty means the difference between life and death, Jeremiah and Monique find the kind of love neither of them ever expected – a love that throws them into a fight for their lives, and their future.

Behind the Bench by Linda O’Connor

Dr. Danni Angelo is the team physician for the Clarington Quakes hockey team. She’s worked hard to earn the players’ respect, but the new coach, Trey Mason, is stirring things up, and Danni’s worried her job may be in jeopardy.

Trey finds Danni…distracting. Beauty, brains, and sexy moves on the ice have him uncomfortably attracted. He’s the new guy on the block. He has a reputation to build and a standard to set. The last thing he needs is a complication.

When the team spirals out of control, and Danni and Trey get caught up in a possible drug scandal, things heat up on and off the ice. It’s a whole new game plan…Behind the Bench.

Burn Hard by Elianne Adams

Seven months ago, Trista left the Odyssey, and the sexiest, most frustrating man she’d ever met behind. At least, that’s what she’d thought, until Ryland came into her life again, with an insurance policy in the form of a contract she’d signed tight in his grip. Against her better judgment—and her will—she has to go back with him and spend an entire month trying to resist the crazy pull he had on her. Right. No problem at all. She just has to keep him from worming his way back into her heart and destroying it once and for all. Because once the month was up, she was going home, and their time together would be done. Forever.

Nothing in his life had prepared Ryland for the agony of losing his one true mate. When Trista had left the Odyssey—and him—behind, he’d had no one to blame but himself. That knowledge didn’t make the devastating loss any easier. Raging inside him, his phoenix refuses to accept his decision to let her go. Now, out of control, he has to bring her back and either make it work or be forced to leave the Odyssey for good.

Cabin Fever by Amy Lee Burgess

The dead body of an FBI agent is the last thing nurse Lucy Cameron expects to find on her daily walk near her mountaintop cabin in Colorado. When Nick Astin, the dead man’s partner, tells her there’s a murderous fugitive on the loose, Lucy is terrified.

With a winter storm on the way, Lucy is forced to offer hospitality. Considering her intimacy issues, being snowbound with a sexy man like Nick Astin is not Lucy’s idea of a perfect weekend. However, Nick has other ideas. Unfortunately, so does the killer.

Tempting Doctor Forever By Holly Cortelyou

An old crush. A hot doctor. And one tempting night with consequences.

Samantha Barrett’s got it all under control…if wrangling a classroom of rowdy ninth-graders, chasing a delinquent dog, or living with your grandmother don’t count against you. As if that wasn’t enough, her brother’s best friend, Dr. Ethan Cordero, is back in Barrett Ridge and living next door…and boom, she’s reliving every single one of her silly schoolgirl fantasies about the delicious doctor.

Now, Ethan’s eyes may spark with attraction when he sees her, but his cool, professional demeanor demands she keep her distance. After a string of ill-starred romances, Sam’s sure that common sense will rule the day, right? Of course, she barely notices Ethan’s sizzling-hot, hard abs, broad shoulders or his heart-melting dedication to his teen son.

Dr. Ethan Cordero has it all mapped out for his fresh start in Barret Ridge. Only two things count — get his son, Mateo, through high school and grow his medical practice. That’s all good until Samantha Barrett charges into his backyard, gets under his skin, and lifts that shadow lurking over his heart. But his best friend’s little sister keeps mixing up his well-laid plans with that curvy little backside of hers, her joyful laugh, and her surprising bond with Mateo.

Between a con artist canine, a confused grandma, a backstabbing stepmother, and one decadent chocolate cake, Ethan finds that every path winds right back into the arms of the oh-so-enticing girl next door, Sam.

It’s Not You by Liz Crowe

Lillian Zane chose to practice emergency medicine for the rush, the thrill, and because she’d really rather deal with traumas than actual people. When she walks into the chaotic aftermath of a bus accident one morning at her ER, she knows exactly how to handle it. What she can’t handle is coming face-to-face with the father of one of the injured victims.

Ian Summerfield has spent years putting the tattered remnants of his once-high powered medical practice–along with his marriage and family–behind him. When he discovers the ER staff dealing with his hysterical ex-wife the day of the bus accident, he’s shocked to find himself more than a little intrigued by the smart, somewhat brittle, much younger Doctor Zane.

What starts out smoking hot quickly turns into something serious, something that terrifies Lillian so much she keeps a crucial secret, which jeopardizes their budding relationship beyond repair — almost.

Bayou Heat by Ditter Kellen

Charlene Howard is no stranger to death. Her cancer is back, and she only has months to live. When Charlie hears of a voodoo priestess with the power to heal, she sets out for Louisiana in a desperate search to find her. What she discovers is a love worth dying for…

The legend of the Rougarou is thought to be just that—a legend. But deep in the swamps of Louisiana, the locals know the truth. The ravenous beast is all too real, and Kash LeRoux understands that better than anyone. He’s sexy, tough, and definitely hiding something. The beast in Kash is out for Charlie’s blood…but the man in him craves her heart.

Accidentally Forever by Gina Kincade

Caitlin never thought running away from her past would bring her tumbling head over heels into her future.

A rare survivor of a werewolf attack, she spends an unforgettable week with the town’s Doctor and his nurse while she heals from her wounds.

Doc Nick is the local pack’s Alpha. Axel is Nick’s beta, his protégé, his housemate, and his best friend. Their lives have intertwined in what seems like destiny’s future for the last ten years. When the two fall hard for the new little hellcat in town, will letting her go be the one thing they can’t live with?

The blood test results are in and a surprise is in store for Caitlin that may just throw her plans right out the window. Can she overcome the changes to her planned future, or will her world be rocked on its axis in a way she could never dream of?

Posing as a blood courtesan is the perfect cover…right up until everything goes wrong.

Eternity: Abigail by Tami Lund—When I was a blood courtesan, I fell for my vampire lover. He set me free and swore he’d stay away forever, because vampires and humans aren’t meant to be together. But now I’m in trouble, and he’s the only one who can save me.
Condemned: Bonnie by Julia Mills—It’s now or never – my brother is sentenced to hang for a crime he didn’t commit and it’s up to me to save him.

Sacrifice: Olivia by Kristen Strassel—The vampire clan turned me to save me from their enemy. But I’m not automatically a part of the coven–first, I must prove myself as a blood courtesan. I’m assigned to sexy Pierce, who never bought me at auction, but I’ll win the ancient vampire’s heart with the thing that speaks to him–blood.

Undone: Missie by Skye Jones— I hate rich people and vampires, so when I meet a drop dead handsome man that is both, I want to despise him. But I need his help and put my principals to one side. What starts out as a way of securing my freedom becomes so much more, and soon I’m in too deep mind, body, and soul.
Concealed: Lexi by Rosalie Redd—I must become a blood courtesan to pay for my life-saving treatments, and my first client is a vampire other courtesans fear.

Refrain: Neriza by Susan Griscom—One fateful night changed my life forever, leaving me parentless, penniless, and caring for my ailing sister. Luckily, I have something to barter with that not many people do, and the blood courtesans are very interested in me. My first client turns out to be the man of my dreams, the sexy-as-sin vampire rock star I’ve lusted after since I was a teen, but he wants nothing to do with me or what I have to offer–and making him accept me may be the only way for me to stay alive.

 

Relic: Cyra by TL Reeve—I never thought I would need a vampire. But, after my mom steals a priceless artifact from the New Orleans Coven, I become a pawn in their dirty game. In order to survive, I have to do the one thing I promised myself I’d never do.

EXCERPT  by Susan Griscom
“You’re quite beautiful.”
I glanced down at the light golden carpet my toes dug into, the fire in my cheeks burning as if the sun scorched my face. No one had ever said that to me before. I’d dated a couple of guys over the years, but nothing ever came of them. They hadn’t exactly been what one would consider ideal boyfriend material. One left the day after our first date to join the Army and the other, well, I just never heard from him again after that first date.
“That embarrasses you?”
I nodded.
“No reason to be embarrassed.” He grabbed my hand and led me over to the bed. “Sit down.”
I did as he requested and he sat next to me. This was so strange. Was he just going to bite me and drink my blood without any sort of getting to know me? Things were happening too fast, but there was nothing I could do about it. Per our contract I was obligated to do whatever he wanted me to do.
“Forgive me if this all seems rushed. I don’t have time for formalities tonight. I haven’t fed in over a week and I have a lot of work to do.” He nuzzled his face into the crook of my neck right where I knew my vein throbbed, thanks to my nerves. But he didn’t bite me.
“You smell divine. Like blackberries infused with a dark, red cabernet.”
I’d never been compared to a wine before. I let out a nervous giggle and braced myself for the sting his fangs would surely make, though I had no idea if it would hurt or not.
Instead of biting me, he curled his finger under my chin and turned my face toward his. His lips were thick and invitingly smooth and so close. He ran his tongue over them and then surprised me by skimming his lips over mine. With our gazes locked, he pressed his mouth to mine again, slanting his head and slipping his tongue through my slightly parted lips.
Shoving his hands into my hair, he clutched my head, holding me still while his tongue swept around my mouth, dancing with my own, dominating me, heating my blood, making me desperate for what I only vaguely understood.
I’d been kissed before, but never like this, not the way his tongue stroked mine as if he needed me, as if he couldn’t get enough. He tasted of cinnamon and red wine. The lust inside me boiled hot, thick and intoxicating. My body temperature rose and I was pretty sure I might combust at any minute. My thighs clenched as he made some sort of sexy growling noise. My arms rose up his back and my fingernails raked back down his naked flesh, skimming over the firm and smooth texture.
I forgot about worrying that I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t need to know, everything came as a natural and urgent need. I wanted to be touched everywhere by this man and when his firm warm hand slipped inside the neckline of my dress and cupped my breast, I arched into it. My breath hitched when his fingers squeezed my nipple. Arousal prickled my skin and a slow, hot tingle spurred between my legs.
I wanted to be devoured by him.
Lyric Rivers was everything I’d ever imagined him to be. A heated throb gathered between my thighs. When his other hand slipped up my thigh and squeezed my ass I held my breath. No, I actually couldn’t breathe. I wasn’t wearing panties and now he knew it.
Then, almost as quickly as he started kissing me, he stopped. So abruptly I teetered backwards and had to catch myself with my hands on his shoulders as he stared into my eyes. Was he about to compel me? I didn’t need to be compelled. I wanted him all on my own.

EXCERPT  by Michelle Fox
“So you wanted to be a Blood Courtesan. You thought that would get you what you wanted?” He leaned down, looming over me. “Well, through your own stupidity, you’re going to find out if that was a good plan or not.”
“I am?” My voice came out in a breathy dog whistle squeak.
“I will take you as mine.”
“You will?” This was a whisper, my vocal cords had drawn tight, strangled by fight-or-flight adrenaline.
“In every way.” Pyro’s eyes held a knowing gleam I didn’t understand, and the baritone rumble of his voice throbbed with wickedness.
My body responded with a throb of its own, like a nearby tribe answering a signal. His voice, just his voice had slipped through my skin cells to the vulnerable flesh beneath. That was all it took for him to get to me.
Oh god. Oh god. Oh god.
My stomach hit an iceberg of fear and promptly sank.  The things he could do to me, the things he would do to me…
“This way Theo cannot touch you and I am repaid for the trouble you have caused.”  He rested a finger on my cheek and slipped it down to my jaw and then lower, to the hollow of my neck. My pulse tapped out an SOS into his finger, but he didn’t notice…or maybe he didn’t care.
“Fortunately for you, I am between courtesans right now.”
“That’s me. So lucky,” I half-sobbed. I wanted to be brave, but I had no way out and I knew it. Pyro’s offer or death. Those were my choices. No in between.
“No tears, Violet. You brought this on yourself.” He gripped my chin and his hard gaze drilled into mine. “But you’re pretty. You have a nice blush. And if I’m any judge of women, you’re innocent, yes?”
I didn’t respond and he gave me a little shake. “Answer me. You’re untouched, aren’t you?”
“Yes.” And when he bit me, he’d know why.
“A crazy little virgin in my bed.” He let me go and stepped back, shaking his head. “I would have never thought to ask for someone like you, but now that you’re here…” He trailed off.
“What?” The question tumbled from nerveless lips.
“I’m going to enjoy making you scream.”

Betrayed: Powerful Stories of Kick-Ass Crime Survivors
22 Crime Thrillers by bestselling, award-winning, and critically acclaimed authors!
What happens when the person you trust the most betrays you? That’s the question posed in Betrayed, a powerful collection of stories about love, violence, and survival. The characters in these pages may suffer and bleed, but they fight back. They are survivors — not victims.
In Terri Lynn Coop’s Legal Aid, an overworked lawyer takes on a complex divorce case that just may get her fired … or killed.
An invalid who believes his neighbor is tormenting his young wife takes matters into his own hands in Wendy Tyson’s Soap.
When a private investigator is hired to find someone who appears to have disappeared from the face of the earth, he questions whether some people should be found in How Not to Find Someone in Houston by Liam Sweeney.
And in Elizabeth Heiter’s The Second Shot a teenage girl is convicted of murdering her abusive father … but is she really guilty?
As a bonus, New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan contributed the novella, Mirror, Mirror, about what happens when a police detective suspects her sister is hiding a dark secret … a secret that just may get them both killed.
These stories and more fill the pages of the first anthology published by Authors on the Air. Victims become victors and – hopefully – justice is served.
Every author has donated their time and stories. Profits from this anthology are being donated to programs and organizations that help victims of domestic violence reclaim their lives.
