Hotter Than Ever: Middle-Aged Hottie, #1 eBook by Linda Cousine Kobo Edition | rekoworamo.ml
Richly written and injected with moments of humor, this action-packed romantic tale will leave you breathless. For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. Tess Callahan, who owns half a pawn shop in the strangest town in Florida, didn't expect Jack to show up and be so very enticing. And exciting.
And annoyingly over-protective. But when yet another dead body shows up on her doorstep, it's time to take action. And if she has to team up with a sexy tiger shape-shifter to do it, well, that's just a bonus. Welcome to Dead End, Florida, where Bigfoot keeps a winter home. And welcome to the Tiger's Eye Mysteries!
Beware: This novel contains magic, shape shifters, humor, vampires, a taxidermied alligator, witches, gunshots, bad singing, Crazy Hormonal Town, terrible parking, the FBI, swamp commandos, tigers, special agents, flirting, belly laughs, comedy, humor, and a pawn shop. Fresh out of college, I have a coveted intern position at the biggest movie studio in Hollywood, and probably the only virgin left in tinsel town.
I should have taken that bet because who would have guessed my sexy stranger was Jamie freaking Donovan. It is a free gift. The people that received healing in the Gospels all came with faith or because of the faith of their friends and family. They were needy and their state of distress caused Jesus to respond as a doctor would to his patients.
But only when a patient comes through that door can the doctor begin the healing process. Healing grows like a plant. In scripture the Lord likens the kingdom of God to the planting of a grain of mustard seed, which grew and became a tree. Divine healing is a part of the kingdom of God. Where there is faith the essential nature of divine healing is to increase. When we pray the prayer of faith, and our faith is equal to the mountain to be moved, whether it is for healing or for anything else, then we can expect to see the answer at once — or at least very soon.
But when we think of all the barriers there can be of un-forgiveness or fear, we begin to see why the answers to our prayers usually come in a more progressive way. Believe that your miracle is planted in you. Believe that it is growing. Accept that your faith is increasing. Expect a result; keep your eyes open for a change for the better. We need to keep in mind — that the nature of the kingdom of God, which includes healing, is to grow. Our role is that of a gardener; by faith we plant the seed and then watch it come up.
Suppose we plant a seed in the ground. For a while afterwards we see nothing at all. There is no sign of what we have planted, and we might be tempted to think nothing is happening, we find, as time goes by, a slip of green poking its way up through the soil. We are glad — even thrilled to see it. And, as we go on watching it each day, tending it as best we can, it continues to grow and in due time reaches its full size.
And so it is when we pray the prayer of faith for healing. God says that his blessing will grow like a plant. We plant the seed by accepting healing in the same way as we accept Christ for salvation. At first we may not see any result at all. Even so we believe something is happening, and sooner or later we will see the first sign of healing appear.

Detective Darek Blake thought the secrets of his past were long buried, but when a young girl is murdered in a familiar way, finding the killer will not only bring back memories he's repressed, but give him a golden opportunity to impress the FBI.
So, when his partner, Special Agent Lizzy McNamara digs up evidence that's a little too close to home, he's shaken to the core. The worst sin he's ever committed bubbles up, threatening to destroy his future. Being a suspect in a murder case never happens at a good time, but for Capricorn, Tad Halston, a recovering addict and former male escort who is on the verge of reclaiming his place as an in-demand male model, the timing couldn't be worse. With bodies piling up and more evidence pointing to him for the murders, the last thing he needs is a series of anonymous messages demanding he make the next kill for vengeance.
Can he murder the uncle who abused him and sent his life hurtling down this dark path, or will his sister become the real killer's next victim? For Tad, time is running out.

Becoming an informant was never part of the deal, but with new evidence hitting too close to home, Darek is left with no other choice.
With the killer targeting Darek's old friends, he has to decide which side is most important, his role as a detective, or his past as part of the Zodiac Society. Hannah Halston, Tad's sister, refuses to believe the official story that her brother went on a vengeful killing spree. She's doing her best to clear his name, which brings Darek's partner, Special Agent Lizzy McNamara, even closer to his criminal past. Meanwhile, whoever is targeting the Zodiacs has their sights on Logan Miller.
His life is complicated enough already, with his struggling career and bitter relationship with an older woman, but when he meets Hannah Halston at her brother's funeral, lending a sympathetic shoulder turns into so much more. He's determined to end things with the older woman until she tells him she's dying. Stuck between a rock and hard place, does he continue his relationship, or go where his heart tells him?
Will the killer choose for him? Now, with the aid of a time capsule, the human race is once more populating the Earth, resurrecting a civilization and technologies lost centuries earlier. With those innovations, though, come the need for some in that new civilization to fight for dominance and control of the new world.
