Rory Roosevelt inherited some of her family’s paranormal gifts, including the ability to interact with ghosts. She assists every murdered person who appears seeking help, even ones like snarky socialite Astrid Haas. As if attempting to help Astrid discover the identity of her killer, running Nostalgia Road Bed & Breakfast, and maintaining her web design business weren’t enough to keep her busy, sweet but sassy Rory unexpectedly finds herself in the company of Caden Brody, a mercenary of sorts who eliminates murderers who can’t be legally brought to justice. He and his four brothers, all adopted, have dedicated their lives to their cause, not examining their origins too closely or planning for their futures.
Connecting their families’ pasts, Rory and Caden realize that they must unite with Beck, David, Sawyer, and Thorn, Caden’s brothers, in order to stop Astrid’s killer, a megalomaniac who dreams of ruling the world by unleashing a terrible evil. Each Brody brother possesses a paranormal talent that represents a key component to the success of their mission, but Rory and Caden are the essential elements in a life-and-death struggle that will determine their survival and the opportunity for them to enjoy a lifetime of love.

Arriving back at her home estate, the first thing Rose does is visit her stepsister Sarah’s grave, taking her younger sister, Maggie, along. After a forced retreat at the cousins’, Rose looks forward to some normalcy and a return to routine. Not to mention the unexpected upcoming ball hosted by their elusive neighbors to introduce their son Henry, who has been away. Perhaps this mysterious Henry may become interested in Rose. Or most likely he would become her younger sister’s fourth suitor and Rose would endure more “old maid” banter.
With the oppressive heat and unpredictable weather, Rose and Maggie are caught in a sudden severe thunderstorm. Maggie makes it back before the sky unleashes its fury, but Rose is caught behind. She really doesn’t mind, however, because she loves the rain and the wind and the gardens and could stay outside their stuffy mansion forever. Away from the wardrobe.
In the midst of the storm, Rose is cut by a briar and becomes caught in the mud. She sees a woman on their front porch. 𝘔𝘢𝘨𝘨𝘪𝘦?
“Help me, Maggie!” But the woman is gone.

Title: Glitter & Greed (Brooklyn Brothers, #4)
Author: Melanie Munton
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 24, 2021
Cover Designer: L.J. Anderson at Mayhem Cover Creations
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
We are the Rossetti’s.
The exiled “sixth family” of the New York mafia. We’re the good guys.
People don’t fear us…much. They respect us.
The five of us? We’re the Brooklyn Brothers.
And we protect what’s ours.
Don’t ask me what made this girl different, what made her stand out. I’m not proud of it, but it wasn’t exactly my first ever lap dance. The last thing I expect is for the same woman I’ve been obsessing over for two months to waltz right into my gym.
Catalina “Cat” Vasquez is the most alluring, sensual woman I’ve ever met. She has secrets, and I want all of them. It’s the only way I can protect her. Because it seems I’m not the only one who’s been looking for her.
Just my luck that I would fall for a woman who has connections with the Mexican cartel. Who would have thought her stalker would be the same man who’s about to wage an all-out war on my turf?
I’m a fighter by nature.
I fight for what’s mine.
And I’m not about to lose to someone who wants to steal Cat away from me.
If he thinks his guns will save him from my fists, he came to the wrong city.
Cat hadn’t seen me sitting at the bar yet, and I had no clue what to expect when she eventually did. I had no say in anything she did with her life, so she’d have every right to have my ass kicked out of that club. There had only ever been one outcome by showing up there.
That I’d be one step closer to insanity.
An arm belonging to one of the rowdy drunks near the stage suddenly shot out and wrapped around Cat’s middle. She had to quickly balance her tray of empty glasses when he roughly yanked her onto his suited lap.
I immediately looked toward the security guys standing near the entrance, but the two bouncers were trying to break up a heated altercation between two customers and were distracted by their shouting to pay attention to her. There was a no touching rule at this club, even if it wasn’t always strictly enforced. If they threw out every single guy that patted one of the girls on the ass, they wouldn’t have any customers left.
This was a whole lot of goddamn touching.
Cat tried to push to her feet, but he pulled her right back down. It was the first time I’d ever seen her smile waver with uncertainty. She normally wore a mask of indifference—or numbness—when she worked at Rumors. It was like nothing got to her. Nothing made her wobble.
This motherfucker was bothering her.
You could see it stamped all over her face. The way her mouth tightened, her shoulders stiffened. She was gripping her tray like she was seconds away from whacking him over the head with it.
I’d had enough. The dumbass was lucky I’d restrained this much and hadn’t already dropped him.
Downing the rest of my beer in two gulps, I slammed the glass onto the bar and moved in their direction. Even the nearly obliterated guys who were a few sips away from passing out on the floor got out of my way. They knew by the look on my face not to fuck with me. I was still several feet away when Cat’s head jerked in my direction, as if she sensed my presence.
Her eyes widened in fear.
The action irritated me. The last thing I wanted was for her to be afraid of me. But then I realized…
She was afraid for him.
She’d already seen me in action. She knew what kind of damage I could inflict.
I came to a stop right next to the son of a bitch in the rumpled suit. His four buddies around the table were just as sloshed as he was but all shrank back in their seats at the sight of me. His hand still had a firm grasp on Cat’s waist as his glazed eyes slowly ticked up to me.
“The next dance is mine,” I grated in a menacingly low voice.
He glared through half-lidded eyes. “Oh, yeah? You already pay for it?”
He reached into his pocket and threw down a one-hundred-dollar bill.
I snorted in both disbelief and fury.
Did he really think that was all she was worth? A measly hundred bucks? As padded as my bank account had gotten over the last year, I’d never possess enough money for what she was worth. Her value went beyond money anyway. To reduce her to a dollar sign was fucking insulting.
I pulled out my entire money clip and threw it on top of his bill. It was thick and heavy, and all you could see were hundreds.
His eyes widened. He swallowed nervously.
Yeah, motherfucker. And I’ll keep going.
Hell, I’d bankrupt the asshole before I let him think he could ever have a moment of Cat’s time. In fact, he had approximately three more seconds to get his fucking hands off. And that was me being generous.
Luka Rossetti was not fucking generous.
Melanie grew up in a small town in the Midwest. After marrying her husband, she decided she wanted to try coastal life because why not? A few months later, they moved to North Carolina where she discovered her passion for writing, and they never looked back. They are now enjoying life with their beautiful daughter in Savannah, GA and loving every minute with their little Georgia peach.
Melanie’s other passion is traveling and seeing the world. With anthropology degrees under their belts, she and her husband have made it their goal in life to see as many archaeological sites around the world as possible.
She has a horrible food addiction to pasta and candy (not together…ew). And she gets sad when her wine rack is empty.
At the end of the day, she is a true romantic at heart. She loves writing the cheesy and corny of romantic comedies, and the sassy and sexy of suspense. She aims to make her readers swoon, laugh out loud, maybe sweat a little, and above all, fall in love.

Kylie Tate and Alex finally have the life they have been dreaming of. Happily married, they are enjoying their honeymoon in the Colorado Rockies. But when Kylie is kidnapped, their lives are thrown into turmoil once again. Once rescued, the kidnapper disappears, but not without leaving behind clues to his identity. The man who escaped from prison…Alex’s father, James Wells.
Soon, his body is discovered on Alex Stone’s estate. The cause of death—murder.
When James Wells’ body is found in the boathouse on the Stone estate, all the evidence points to one man—Alex. Now, Kylie is in a legal battle not only for her future, but for Alex’s life. And she vows she will not stop fighting until Alex is fully vindicated.

Born and raised in the Rocky Mountains, Anne L. Parks has moved all over the United States with her Navy husband. Legally trained, she switched careers and followed her dream of becoming an author. When not writing, she spends her time reading, doing yoga, mountain biking, and spoiling her German Shepherd, Zoe. And drinking wine.
Parks loves to create stories with mystery, plenty of twists and turns, and loaded with suspense. With a background in criminal defense and a military husband, she feels right at home amongst highly trained, somewhat jaded, ready-to-take-out-the-bad-guys alpha males and the strong, brave women who love them, but can also handle whatever life throws at them. Murders, terrorists, courtroom drama…if it touches on the dark nature of humanity, Parks is unafraid of delving into the depths of depravity—and bringing her readers along for the ride.

Deanndra Hall is a working author living in the far western end of the beautiful Bluegrass State with her husband of over 35 years and small menagerie of weird little dogs. When she’s not writing, she’s editing. When she’s doing neither of those two things, she’s having dinner with friends, spending time with family, kayaking, eating chocolate, drinking beer or moonshine, or looking for something that she put in the wrong place and can’t seem to find (which is pretty much everything she owns).
