Reborn, written with Lisa Collicutt – 99 cents
“The Serendipitous Curse of Solomon Brandt is seriously cool, and another winner for Aiden James! This time he teams up with the talented Lisa Collicutt–and what a fantastic team it is!” ~J.R. Rain, Bestselling author of Moon River and Silent Echo
Since the Civil War, the name Solomon Brandt, has been reviled, a painful reminder to all descendants of the slaves the wicked plantation owner cruelly tortured.
When a man bearing this cursed name stumbles into the heart of Savannah and its storied history, he can’t help but attract the attention of the locals in the know.
A seemingly kindhearted amnesiac, he is drawn to an ancient and haunted plantation home that bears his name, as well as to a Hoodoo practitioner who converses with spirits, and her gorgeous green-eyed niece.
But curses run deep, and Solomon’s crippling nightmares tell him more than he cares to know – or bear. Immersed in wickedness long ago, he has been given a second chance to set things right and redeem his feared name.
Will he use the life he once took for granted to save the hearts – and lives – of the women he cherishes most? Or will the bloodthirsty Solomon of ages past reign once more, in the modern age?
Murder in Whitechapel, written with Michelle Wright – 99 cents
Emmanuel Ortiz holds an ancient and dark secret…
His real name is Judas Iscariot.
Forced to walk the earth as a cursed immortal, Judas’ disguise as Emmanuel does little to ease his eternal loneliness. Having recovered nine of his thirty blood coins, his focus is not yet on redemption for his treacherous role in the betrayal of Jesus Christ.
Distractions come easily for the rich entrepreneur and sometimes sleuth who presently resides in England, 1888. Fascinated by the spate of murders in London’s poverty stricken Whitechapel, Emmanuel soon realizes the killings resemble others he is familiar with, and the bloody signature of killing and taunts speaks to the unholy talents of yet another immortal…an enemy from long ago.
This knowledge fuels his determination to track and apprehend the infamous Jack the Ripper at any cost.
With the backdrop of a Victorian Society, rigid and moralistic, along with the plight of those less fortunate, Emmanuel seeks to align himself with Scotland Yard. With the help of his immortal pal, Roderick Cooley, and by pretending to be an American private investigator interested in the horrific prostitute killings, he sets out to stop the senseless bloodshed. But, has he bitten off more than he can chew, by immersing himself in the slums and disease of the Ripper’s hunting grounds?
As the mystery unfolds it becomes the ultimate test…not only of his abilities as an immortal, but also of his very soul.
Fractured Earth, written with James Wymore – 99 cents
On a secret military base tucked in a remote desert mountain, a dangerous machine lies hidden from the American public.
Known as “The Actuator”, this machine is capable of transforming entire communities into alternate realities. In theory, these often terrifying realities are reversible. The scientists in charge of this machine employ operatives called Machine Monks, who attune their minds to manifest single ideas from the realms of fantasy and science fiction. These ideas are then superimposed upon sparsely inhabited areas for testing.
For a while, the enigmatic Actuator cooperates with the experiments, using dampeners to limit the affected area. But those in charge of the project eagerly anticipate exploring the full potential of this amazing device. Experiments progress to where they feed more than twenty different genre ideas simultaneously into the Actuator’s database. Meanwhile, an unknown saboteur dismantles the dampeners. The effect is catastrophic. The entire world is plunged into chaos, and familiar landscapes become a deadly patchwork of genre horrors. Overnight, the Actuator becomes the worst menace the earth has ever seen, claiming lives in staggering numbers.
Can a few surviving Machine Monks band together to set things right again? It all depends on whether Red McLaren and the Monks can survive their journey through the various realms that separate them from the Actuator, where ever-present orcs, aliens, pirates, and vampires seek to destroy them. They must move quickly, as time is running out to stop the Actuator and the villain who controls it and the earth’s destiny.
The Vampires’ Last Lover, written with Patrick Burdine – 99 cents
Txema Ybarra is the most unenviable nineteen-year-old girl alive.
Smart, pretty, and athletically gifted, this University of Tennessee freshman should be enjoying college life and her entrance into adulthood. And for a moment she does… until the vampires show up.
Born with an unusual ‘twin teardrop’ birthmark on her neck, Txema (pronounced Chema) is one of only a handful of females in the world who bear this trait. It marks her as a vessel of eternal youth and beauty for an elite vampire society determined to protect her precious blood… But it also is the only thing standing in the way of a rogue ‘undead’ nation determined to destroy mankind and usurp the power their sexier brethren have held uncontested for centuries.
Caught in the middle of this war after all the other bearers of the birthmark are murdered, Txema must flee America and heads to France under the protection of five beautiful vampires who all have a vested interest in her survival. The race is on to save her blood, as well as her very life, to ensure the survival of Les Amantes de Vampire.
Otherwise, Txema will be the last one… the vampires’ last lover.
