Is his hometown going to break his heart? Mike Kennedy's college pals at Cambridge refuse to believe that his hometown, Tide's Way, North Carolina, is the good-hearted Mayberry Mike depicts. They bet him money that no one in Tide's Way will offer him a helping hand if he spends a week disguised as a grungy, dangerous-looking homeless guy. Mikes takes the bet. So there he was, spending a chilly, rainy Spring break shivering and hungry under an old tarp draped over the railing of the bandstand on Tide's Way's small common. Three days had gone by without anyone offering him so much as a cup of coffee. He hated to lose the money he'd wagered but even worse, he hated that his hometown was apparently not what he'd thought it was. Would anyone prove that Tide's Way lived up to its ideals? Skye Taylor has been a member of Romance Writers of America since 1995 and of the Ancient City chapter in St. Augustine, Florida, for the last six years, where she's served as secretary, conference chair and treasurer. Her publishing credits to date include several non-fiction essays about life as a Peace Corps Volunteer, one mainstream political intrigue, WHATEVER IT TAKES, and the Tide's Way series.

Will he forgive her moment of weakness? After a year of deployment, Marine lieutenant Meg Cameron returns to Tide's Way tormented by guilt over the kiss she shared with her commanding officer as he comforted her after the death of a military dog. Her husband, Ben, is the love of her life. What will he think when she confesses? Ben Cameron is just happy that his brave, beautiful wife is safely home with him and their young sons. Everything seems fine--at first. In bed, he and Meg are perfect together, until the nightmares come and she calls out a name that's not his. She won't talk about it. Meg struggles to find a way to explain life in a war zone but can't even bring herself to tell Ben, a professional dog trainer, why the traumatized police dog he's rehabilitating tears her heart out: the big shepherd looks just like the bomb dog who died on Meg's team. As Ben's frustrations and fears climb, Meg debates returning to active duty and leaving home again. If Ben can't convince her to trust him, her pain may take her back into harm's way.

In Loving Meg, Book Two of The Camerons of Tide's Way series, Meg and Ben Cameron struggle with the post-traumatic stress she suffers after a tour of duty in the middle east. Their love for each other is tested as Meg can't stop blaming herself for a tragedy and a battlefield temptation she never expected. Trying to adjust to a quiet life as a wife and mother to two small boys in laidback Tide's Way, North Carolina, feels impossible. And when Ben takes a traumatized police dog into his kennel's training program, it brings back even more painful memories of the incident that haunts Meg. Maybe her only hope of finding herself is to re-enlist and go back to the brotherhood of warriors. It's up to Ben to change her mind. In Loving Ben, eighteen-year-old Meg decides it's time to let Ben know that she's not a kid anymore and that she's loved him as long as she's known him. She could swear the attractive college man--her brother's best friend--has been looking at her in a different way lately, but she may be letting her imagination run wild. This future Marine is going to put on makeup and a dress, step into some sparkly sandals, and let Ben Cameron know he shouldn't treat her like a kid sister anymore.

The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal. Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow. The Ryogan Chronicles are best enjoyed in order.

After decades of internecine warfare, the tribes of the Tiste Edur have at last united under the Warlock King of the Hiroth. There is peace--but it has been exacted at a terrible price: a pact made with a hidden power whose motives are at best suspect, at worst, deadly. To the south, the expansionist kingdom of Lether, eager to fulfill its long-prophesized renaissance as an Empire reborn, has enslved all its less-civilized neighbors with rapacious hunger. All, that is, save one--the Tiste Edur. And it must be only a matter of time before they too fall--either beneath the suffocating weight of gold, or by slaughter at the edge of a sword. Or so destiny has decreed. Yet as the two sides gather for a pivotal treaty neither truly wants, ancient forces are awakening. For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of a far more profound, primal battle--a confrontation with the still-raw wound of an old betrayal and the craving for revenge at its seething heart.
