Shutterbug Allison Lee is trying to survive high school while suffering the popular girl's abuse. Her life is often abysmal, but at least her green hair is savage. Her talent for photography is recognized by the school paper and the judges of a photo contest.

While visiting her friend Joe, a homeless vet, Allison's life irrevocably changes after an attack leaves her blind. All her dreams as a photojournalist are dashed as she realizes she'll never see again. Despair sets in until she is offered an experimental procedure to restore her vision. But there are side effects, or are they hallucinations? She now sees dragons accompanying some of the people she meets. Can she trust her eyes, or has the procedure affected her more than she can see?

Gare de Lyon


Mary O'Riley, native of Boston, goes to Paris to study art on the eve of WWII. Caught in the occupation, she works in a bakery but finds herself frequently carrying messages for her boss. When the SS raids the bakery and arrests the owner, Mary must flee Paris to avoid her own arrest, and the Resistance group she has helped assigns her to escort a downed RAF flyer south to Lyon.

Freddy Winston volunteered to fly secret missions to occupied France. On one of his runs, gunfire surprises him as Resistance members unload passengers and supplies. The plane catches fire, stranding him behind enemy lines. Freddy doesn't like that Mary is Irish. She insists she's just American. They may not like each other but discover quickly they must team up to reach their mutual goal of escaping the Nazis.

The One You Don't See


Harper Colby might be battered and down on her luck, but she refuses to be a victim. Determined to take back her life on her own terms, she seeks sanctuary on her childhood friend Emmie's ranch. There's only one fly in the ointment of her well-laid plans, a bossy cowboy determined to invade her space at every turn. Getting involved with Aiden is the last thing she wants. She's already made that mistake, and she has zero interest in doing it again. But Harper soon learns that sometimes what we think we want and what we actually need are two very different things.
Battle-weary warrior Aiden Whitebear fought all his life to carve a place for himself, first within his tribe, then in the U.S. Army. But then a terrorist ambush took out his convoy, killing his best friend. Aiden decided he'd had enough. The only thing he wants now is peace and quiet. He thought he'd found it on a picturesque ranch in Montana, until a skittish woman lands on his doorstep, turning his world inside out. While her beautiful face might be battered and bruised, there's a defiant fire in her eyes, a survivor's spirit that calls to him. Having faced death already, Aiden isn't a man to waste time going after what he wants. Now a ruthless killer has targeted the ranch, and Aiden must scramble to protect what he holds most dear, and he knows he can't fail. Because one kiss, one stolen moment in Harper's arms, and Aiden knows, deep in his soul, he's found the one thing he's been looking for all his life. Home.
