What people are saying about Flirting With Time:

“Haunting, but in a good way. Twisty, turny, and full of heart.”
~Gretchen Archer – author of the USA Today Bestselling Davis Way Crime Capers

“Fans of Nick and Nora, fans of Tracy and Hepburn—rejoice. You’ll love Marian and Charlie. The talented Mary Anne Edwards weaves a charming, entertaining and delightfully romantic tale of small town deceit. It’s as if Agatha Christie wrote Hart to Hart—and happy readers will eagerly await the next page-turning puzzle.”
~Hank Phillippi Ryan – Anthony, Agatha, Mary Higgins Clark, and Macavity winning mystery author. Emmy-winning journalist.

“Mary Anne Edwards has written a classic whodunit, but the deeper mystery at its heart is who and how we love. Tender, fast-paced, and rich in character, Flirting With Time delivers malice and warmth in equal measure.”
~Tina Whittle – Bestselling author of the Tai Randolph Mysteries

New Release: Ready For Him


READY FOR HIM: A Single Dad Next Door Romance
“You were waiting for me, my little playmate?”
Grant Sherwood.
Once upon a time, that name meant a lot to me. He was my first ever crush. The teenager I blushed and giggled in front of when I was in kindergarten, even though he was ten years my senior. Back then, he played with me in front of high school girls to get their attention. Now he looks totally different. He isn’t the teenage string bean he once was.
This man has an eight pack.
Startling black eyes.
A deep V leading down into his swim trunks.
And he wants to go swimming in the deep end with me.
He offered to help me clean my dad’s inground pool in exchange for a free pass to use it any time he wants.
Will he remember who I am? And if he does, will he ever see me as more than the cute little girl with pigtails who lived next door?

NOTE: This short, steamy summer romance is sure to melt your heart…and your popsicle. It is a standalone, no cheating, no cliffhanger novella. Please enjoy in a cool environment so you don’t get overheated! *wink*

He had failed.
Callum was one of the best warriors the enforcers had in their ranks, only he felt like a failure. He had failed to protect the one thing that was more important than his own life. She had been taken from him and now he couldn’t find her, and he feared the worst. But he wouldn’t give up, not when his heart told him she was still alive. He would never give up until he found her, no matter how lost she may seem.

Helena was lost.
Lost to her own mind and to her soul. Since that fateful night she has felt torn, split in half, searching for a way out and the one thing that will complete her and make her feel whole again. Her only problem: she doesn’t know what is real or a figment of her imagination. Memories and deep, dark fantasies have merged, making her existence seem like a cruel joke. Can Helena fight the demons within herself? Can she free herself from the prison that is her mind?

FEAR INC. by Melinda
Book 2
Ex-Cop Paxton “Tank” Sokolofski’s life is
shattered—first by a bullet, then by a woman. Now he passes his days tracking
down cheating spouses. Not his idea of a good time.
When Cori Transue moves in next door, things get a
little more interesting. She’s a sultry little firecracker, and the way she
looks at him definitely gets his attention.
However, he doesn’t need a woman added to the
mix, especially one with even more baggage than he has.
But when he hears her screaming, he finds himself knee-deep in a
mystery no cop could ignore…and closer to Cori than he’d like.
Tank’s weathered more than his fair share of broken hearts,
broken dreams, and broken noses. But he doesn’t know if he can handle Cori…or
the brutal monster who’s stalking her.

Melinda Valentine was born in upstate New York.
The youngest of four children (and the only girl) made it easy for her to turn
to books as a companion. As a young child she was whisked away to Baltimore,
Maryland. She spent her youth reading books such as Nancy Drew, The Chronicles
of Narnia and The Little House on the Prairie saga.

However, it wasn’t until she was twelve years
old that she read a book (Stephen king’s IT) that made her realize that
someday, she would herself be a writer. After that her first (horrible)
manuscript came to life. At thirteen she had received her very first rejection
letter. Heartbroken, she continued to read even more to learn about the craft
of writing.

Today Melinda calls West Virginia home, with her
three hilarious children and rambunctious puppy. She works full time as a bank
teller and creates characters that she hopes her readers fall in love with as
much as she has.

New Release: Risking Her Heart by Rochelle Katzman

Risking Her Heart Cover

Risking Her Heart by Rochelle Katzman

Drake Morganthal.
Billionaire playboy.
He’s ruthless in business and in bed.
He’ll sleep with you, rip your heart out, and never commit.
He’ll charm you, seduce you, and set your world on fire.
He’ll make you feel as if you’re his woman, then claim you’re only friends.
Friends, as in call once in a while. Not friends with the potential of more.
Drake doesn’t do more.
He’s the exact type of man Livvie needs to stay away from, especially with her destructive pattern of dating narcissistic men who refuse to be monogamous.
Until fate forces them to meet.

Livvie wins a one-week stay at Morganthal Winery, owned by Drake Morganthal. She doubts she’ll see him. And even if she does, there’s no way he’ll give a random raffle winner the time of day.
But she’s wrong.
From the moment they lock eyes, their chemistry is so intense, Drake has to have her. He makes his motives very clear.

Between his delicious wines and his gorgeous body, which she craves like a drug, Livvie has to decide if she’ll spend the week in his vineyard and his bed, or if she’s strong enough to turn away a man as addictive as Drake Morganthal.
