If she’s alone, no one need know that the trauma took away her powers.

Then she finds a bloody, fatally wounded man slumped on her porch. In an instant, her healing ability reawakens—and that’s not all. He stirs a hunger beyond her wildest dreams. But a relationship with the new chief of police? Not a chance.

Alex Rivera isn’t sure how he survived, but he’s certain his beautiful savior did more than just bandage his wounds. Captivated by this wary angel and stunned by the depth of emotion he feels for her, he vows to discover her secrets. After all, thanks to the raging snowstorm, they have nothing to do but share body heat.

Their sizzling attraction goes straight to their hearts. So could a killer’s bullet…once whoever shot Alex finds them.

She has always been content to do her duty…until one night of forbidden passion leaves her longing to experience life—and love—as a mortal woman. Yet the risk is too great. Even if her blood runs as red as his, she can never give him the one thing he needs: a child.

Taric’s blessing—and his curse—is knowing the kingdom’s future depends on his producing an heir to continue the bloodline. His bond with Myla has always been that of protector and protected. When it suddenly becomes something much more, he unwittingly sentences his people to certain death.

An old enemy is plotting to destroy all he holds dear: his lands, his people, his father, and his lover. And this time, even if they fight tooth and blade, their shared magic may not be enough to save them…

Finding your favorite eBook romance and erotica from small press and independent publishers on the Kindle is still hit and miss. Some make nearly all their titles available in Kindle format, while others only a few.

Often a time lag exists between when a book is available from a publisher’s website, or other eBook retailer such as All Romance, My Bookstore and More, or Books on Board, and when it becomes available for the Kindle.

Here are the results of several searches I conducted recently at the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.  I entered a publisher’s company name into the Kindle Store search box and then sorted available titles by date of publication. Search engines are far from infallible, so if you have additional information about these publishers and the Kindle, please feel free to comment!
