Kirsten Mortensen is the author of numerous books, articles, and short stories, including four full-length novels:


If Haley Dubose wants to inherit her father's fortune, she has no choice.

She has to leave sunny Southern California for a little backwater town in Upstate New York, and run a chemical manufacturing company he founded -- for two whole years.

But Haley soon wishes her only problems were of the spoiled-rich-girl variety.

She finds herself entangled in a web of evil, spun by men who use powerful, synthetic chemicals to manipulate people.

They can drive their enemies insane.

They can manipulate them sexually.

They can even kill.

And they are preparing to enslave the world.


Animal Control Officer Paige Newbury doesn’t know what’s worse.

Her man problems.

Or her dog problems.

She opens a package and finds The Ring—which means the guy she can’t get over is about to walk back into her life.

Then she stumbles on evidence of a criminal dog fighting ring—which means a gorgeous pit bull she tried to save is doomed to suffer . . . or maybe even die.

She’s sure she can seal the deal with her boyfriend with a little help from sexy lawyer Larry Crawford.

But she’ll soon need another scheme—this time, to save her life.


They’re launching a product that will save the company.

At the biggest trade show in the universe.

Their careers are at stake.

Heck, the future of the entire CITY is at stake.

Then they discover that the product doesn’t actually exist . . .


Biologist Libby Samson wants only one thing: to rebuild her life after an ugly divorce.

So she quits her job and buys an organic farm.

Then, one evening, a two-foot tall man stands up out of the shadows and greets her by name.

It’s hard enough for Libby to come to terms with the fact that “little folk” exist.

But when word of Libby’s experience leaks out onto the Internet, her peaceful farm soon swarms with kooky strangers. The media shows up. Her annoying sister shows up. And her horrified boyfriend thinks she should be on meds.

Libby finds one person she can confide in: Dean, her solitary (but sexy) next-door neighbor.

But what if trusting Dean is a huge mistake?
