Summer on Seeker's Island
An Anthology by 10 New York Times bestselling authors


The Indie Voice brings you a summer you'll never forget…

How did the Indie Voice authors—ten New York Times bestsellers—collaborate to write an anthology of romantic short stories set on fictional Seeker’s Island? Well, it was a challenge!

We did agree on two things: Seeker’s Island would be set off the coast of Florida, and a local legend claims that a trip to the waters of Seeker’s Spring will bring your heart’s desire.

But then Jana had to have her alligators. Debra liked sweet stories. Liliana and Jasinda planned to set e-readers on fire. Denise wanted to write about long lost love. Theresa threw in some kids. Dorien brought in her Irish. Jane insisted on the light, funny stuff. Colleen made plans for a nerdly scientist. And Tina wanted a vampire. Seriously? On Seeker’s Island?

In the end, did we compromise? No way. We wrote them all!

The result is ten different stories that will make you laugh, cry, and sigh. So sit back, pour yourself a glass of wine, and get ready to find your heart’s desire... on Seeker’s Island. To learn more, visit www.seekersisland.com.

When bold and sexy businessman Devlin Gilvane arrives in the Irish village of Ballymuir, almost everyone is taken by his charm. Only American chef Jenna Fahey sees the threat he poses. She's highly suspicious of the way Dev is sniffing around Muir House, the old manor house she has leased and worked relentlessly to turn into a restaurant on the brink of international fame. Muir House has been Jenna's redemption from a dark past, and she will fight to the end to make it hers. Dev needs the property to reach the top of the multinational resorts corporation that employs him. He won't let one admittedly beautiful chef get in his way. But neither Dev nor Jenna expects the passion that ignites between them, or the secrets that reveal themselves as their lives collide.

When Irish artist Vi Kilbride travels from her village of Ballymuir to prepare her beloved late grandmother's cottage in Duncarraig for sale, more than memories of the summers she'd spent growing up there await her. Long-ago love Liam Rafferty is back in town. Vi, who has kept her heart to herself since having it broken by Liam, finds herself drawn to him all over again. Time has spun back to that passionate summer when they'd first loved for Liam, too. But Vi and Liam are soon at odds. Liam has begun a search for Rafferty's Gold, a legendary treasure allegedly hidden by one of Vi's ancestors after her heart had been broken by a faithless Rafferty. Liam, with his high-tech search equipment, might think the ancient gold is his to do with as he pleases. But Vi, with only her often stubborn second sight and her grandmother's journals to guide her, knows the gold belongs in a museum. Will these two passionate treasure-seekers find a legendary love to go with the gold, or is their past too strong to conquer?

Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend, Jack Culhane, on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all . . . Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title.

January 2012

*Paperback Now Available*


Number one bestselling author Janet Evanovich teams up with award-winning author Dorien Kelly to deliver a sparkling novel of romantic suspense, small-town antics, secretive sabotage, and lots and lots of beer.

Kate Appleton needs a job. Her husband has left her, she’s been fired from her position as a magazine editor, and the only place she wants to go is to her parents’ summer house, The Nutshell, in Keene’s Harbor, Michigan. Kate’s plan is to turn The Nutshell into a Bed and Breakfast. Problem is, she needs cash, and the only job she can land is less than savory.

Matt Culhane wants Kate to spy on his brewery employees. Someone has been sabotaging his company, and Kate is just new enough in town that she can insert herself into Culhane’s business and snoop around for him. If Kate finds the culprit, Matt will pay her a $20,000 bonus. Needless to say, Kate is highly motivated. But several problems present themselves. Kate despises beer. No one seems to trust her. And she is falling hard for her boss.
Can these two smoke out a saboteur, save Kate’s family home, and keep a killer from closing in…all while resisting their undeniable attraction to one another?

If the gods decided to grant Cara Adams one "do-over," the choice would be a no-brainer-she wouldn't have been sucked in by Mark "the Shark" Morgan. Back in law school, Cara had "dumbed down" to catch Mark's eye. Thanks to her stunt, she lost a plum job at a Wall Street firm, and the Shark is enjoying life in the Big Apple.

Now Cara's thirty and doing just fine, thank you very much. Positive she's a shoo-in for a partnership at her prestigious Michigan law firm, Cara's bought herself a new loft, paid off her student loans and is ready for the success she deserves. But the gods are laughing now. Her ally in the law firm bolts in the middle of the night, her secretary gets fired for using the file room as her own boudoir, and…Mark the Shark has come home. Really, the gods must be crazy.

Will Cara go down without a fight? Not this time. Praise ...

Yes, she's always had a thing for the new police chief, but she never meant to live out her fantasy. Now that reality's hit, she knows they can't continue the relationship--it simply wouldn't work. What she doesn't realize is that Cal himself was living a fantasy of his own....

When Dana asked Cal to "come up for a drink" after running into him in Chicago, he knew where the evening was headed. But he never anticipated falling for Dana the way he did. Now she's barely speaking to him, and Cal's not sure if their one perfect night was just a mistake. Problem is, he can't stop thinking about her...or about spending another night with the wild beauty.... Praise ...
