The Dragon's Staircase by McKenna Grey

The Dragon's Staircase


A woman haunted by her past. A man willing to do whatever it takes to save her. A killer closing in.


FBI Agent Alexa Kyndall devoted eight years of her life to the search for justice, showing no mercy to the guilty and depraved. When she joins a special task force to bring down a serial killer, Alexa encounters the most unexpected criminal of her career.


When a child witnesses a brutal slaying, Alexa's life becomes intertwined with Craig Pierson's, a man with his own haunted past. They join forces, only to discover they must put everything on the line in a pulse-pounding struggle to protect and survive.


Nestled in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, The Dragon's Staircase is an intriguing, nonstop adventure that will keep readers enthralled from start to finish.


"The well-defined characters combined with the suspenseful storyline make this a must read, and one that I will be recommending to all of my bookworm friends. I’m amazed at how smooth these two authors have combined their talents into one fabulous story." – Linda Thompson, Host of AuthorsShow.com 

Shadow of the Forgotten by McKenna Grey

Shadow of the Forgotten


A woman preyed upon by corruption. A man who won’t abandon her. An obsession that could destroy them both.


Heather York’s investigative career with the U.S. Marshals Service is neither glamorous nor dangerous, but when she’s thrust to the precipice of an unexpected threat, she has no choice but to wonder if she was meant to be collateral damage or the intended victim.


At a luxury lakeside lodge in Maine, Jordan Kyndall’s plans to celebrate the wedding of his college roommate go awry before the happy couple has a chance to say “I do.” Jordan anticipated a good time with old friends. Instead, he stumbles upon a gruesome scene in the picturesque woods of the woman whose lifeless body unexpectedly stirs his protective nature.


As the threat against them grows and the questions multiply, they’ll have to trust each other—and their feelings—if they’re going to survive.


“That’s the way to do it - keep the reader hooked and reading and thinking they have it all figured out ... only to discover that they don’t. A nice bit of romance, a good deal of “whodunit” tension, and a satisfying conclusion make Shadow of the Forgotten a great read on a weekend away. Enjoy!” — Readers' Favorite

The Wicked Cries Wolf by McKenna Grey

The Wicked Cries Wolf


In the shadow of Alaska’s Chugach Mountains, a darkness lurks and threatens a quiet coastal village in The Wicked Cries Wolf, the third book in the Kyndall Family Thriller series.


A woman desperate for solitude. A man with an enemy he can’t see. A dangerous game neither wants to play.


International bestselling author Meaghan Ryers has gained wealth, success, and fame . . . and all she wants is to be left alone. When her sister suggests she escape to someplace quiet where no one will find her, Meaghan picks a spot on the map and heads for Alaska.


Sheriff Donovan Kyndall of Stewart’s Crossing, Alaska, arrives at the scene of a car fire after receiving a mysterious call. He doesn’t expect a woman from out of town to be at the scene, begging him to believe someone was killed. As clues into the fire emerge, Donovan has to ask himself how she’s connected and how a caller knows details from his own tragic past.


As the truth is revealed, Donovan and Meaghan are entangled in a puzzle of lies, treachery, and clues they must decode if they are to outlast their enemy.


"The author starts the story with a bang, literally, as Meaghan, our lead witnesses an accident. Or was it murder? The author paces the tale beautifully as Meaghan and Donovan try to figure who is targeting them. On a side note, I loved the beautiful naturistic landscape of Alaska where the story takes place. Also Skye is just adorable!" —Rajiv's Reviews
