When Mitch Pembroke and his bodyguard, Kit Moran, agree to help their housekeeper find her daughter, they get more than they bargained for. Miss Egan is not the only resident of her Maine logging town to have gone missing in recent weeks and her terrified neighbors are desperate for answers. Are the disappearances really tied up in an old Native American legend or is there a more sinister solution? Time is running out. Can Mitch and Kit find Miss Egan before they too end up victims of the Deceiver?

When Angie Specter won a slot on the Reality TV show, Panic Button: Lighthouse Island, she promised herself she wasn't going to be involved in a showmance. She's a serious contestant and wants that $250,000 prize. Showmance contestants are weak and foolish, and Angie has no intention of being used by some handsome guy. That is, until she meets Hank. Not only is Hank Cross very handsome, he's as strong and capable as Angie. When the show's crazy host begins to use terror to drive contestants off the island, Angie and Hank quickly figure out that if they don't help each other, they may not live long enough to push their Panic Button.
Samaritan, Lazarus Key, Hearts of Ice, A Taste of Yuletide Vengeance and What Child Is This? are now available for the Nook at Barnes & Noble. They're also available at Amazon.com, Fictionwise, All Romance eBooks, Bookstrand and Kobo.
My story, Hearts of Ice, and my Pandora Series, each picked up favorable mentions recently.
Aside from lamenting that the book was a short story and not a longer work, Barb at Night Owl Reviews said: "... I must admit the ending was a surprise and I was not expecting that... All in all, the story was good, but the length was not."
My Pandora Series at Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine was mentioned in the comments to a Bill Crider blog on western crime fiction at Criminal Element. Richard Prosch said: "Another terrific bunch of Old West mystery stories is Gilbert M. Stack's Pandora series. The new one (Number 10, I think) is in the latest Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine this month."
My novel, Samaritan, co-written with Marc Hawkins, is a bestseller at All Romance eBooks.
The hit and run driver that nearly killed her sister changed Mina's life forever. Editing the trendy Philly Chic magazine did not prepare Mina for a life of crazy-eyed assailants trying to kill her and her niece. Nor did it prepare her for the handsome Samaritan who first prevented her sister from bleedingto death on the street and then introduced her to a world, hidden from most, where only her quick wits and instincts could keep her alive. But would this mysterious Samaritan prove to be part of the solution or the ultimate root of her problems?
Samaritan is available at Red Rose Publishing, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, All Romance eBooks, Kobo, Fictionwise, and Bookstrand.
