B. N. Toler - Hybrid
"My name is Aldo Lawson. I'm awake. And I'm a hybrid." My Aunt Lucy used to say, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.” She said many wise things I never heeded when she was alive. I want to be the woman that’s okay with hiding from what she fears and letting her big, strong man protect her. But that’s not me. I hate to be scared. I hate the feeling that there is an evil out there that could hurt me if it finds me. But mostly, I hate that so many before me lived in fear and died at the hands of evil. That is why I cannot find peace within. There is no peace for me while Healers suffer the atrocities of others. I know Rhett would protect me at all costs. He loves me. And that is why I must leave him behind. It’s impossible to justify hurting someone you love—or many you love—to do what you truly believe is right. Lucy also used to say, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” I get what she was trying to tell me now. Hindsight is twenty/twenty. Sometimes we choose a path we think will lead us toward a noble cause, full of ambition and altruism, only to look back and see we’ve run over and crushed the ones we love most along the way. I can only pray that one day those I love will forgive me. I woke up and I left. I left Rhett, the man who saved me from myself. The man I love. I left my brothers—my best friends. I left. But leaving led me to more. I found answers. I found others like me—who want what I want. But most importantly, I found myself. My name is Aldo Lawson. I’m awake. And I’m a Hybrid.
B. N. Toler - Simple
The Kepner brothers had been dealt a bad hand at life. Misfortune, debt, and death had them fighting an endless uphill battle, but through it all they remained united—when everything seemed hopeless, at least they had each other. When Emalee Jennings blew into town for a summer stay, she was immediately drawn to the Kepner family and immersed herself in their lives, much to the dismay of the youngest brother Cole. Despite his efforts to keep his distance, Cole couldn’t wall out Emalee, as he’d done with the rest of the world. Her beauty, sass, and big dreams swiftly broke down his defenses, and amidst the long sweltering days and fields of wheat, they fell in love—both fully aware when the summer ended, they would part ways. When Emalee unexpectedly returns years later, facing her own hand of misfortune, Cole is suddenly faced with a second chance as he rushes to her side, ready to help her battle what life has thrown at her. Desperate for a safe place to land, Emalee wants nothing more than to fall into the arms of the love of her life, but it’s not as simple as it may seem. When she left town at the end of that fateful summer, she took with her a secret. A secret that could not only cause Cole to close the door on her forever, but one that could tear apart the very thread of his existence—his family. Torn between taking comfort in his arms or revealing her secret, Emalee soon learns that love is never simple.
B. N. Toler - To Have It All
Rock bottom. Liam had set up shop there. After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter. This was it. This was his life. Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street. When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought. When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body. He was in Max’s. And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body. Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex. Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide? Would he lose his chance at true love? Would he lose the chance to have it all?
B. N. Toler - Taking Connor
There’s a stereotype for how a convicted felon appears to the public. Connor Stevens fit that bill. His reputation preceded him. With a hard body and vivid tattoos dispersed across his flesh, he certainly drew the judgmental eyes of conservative tight-asses. Even I had those same thoughts…regardless of how highly Blake spoke of him. But those opinions were about to be challenged. I’d promised to pick Connor up from prison—where he’d served eight years for manslaughter. When Blake passed away, I had every intention of honoring our agreement. Taking Connor home would be my ultimate show of gratitude. Blake never disclosed why Connor killed a man, and I never had the guts to ask. Ever daunted, and against my better judgment, I soon grew to feel close to Connor, in spite of how perverse it was. Still, I vowed to brush off those feelings at all costs. At least I thought I would. Until all hell broke loose… Diving head-first, I relished in the time spent in Connor’s damnation. But when he was thrust into hell, it didn’t matter how wrong it was to love him. It was immaterial what he’d done…or why. I came out swinging and clawing, and submerged into the inferno with him, refusing to leave until we both walked out hand in hand. My instinct was to fight. Connor wouldn’t burn alone. I would save him. Or turn to ash right beside him.
B. N. Toler - Savage
Savage is book #3 in the Healer series. Before reading Savage it is strongly recommended that you read Healer and Hybrid first. A savage is barbaric. It attacks without restraint or pity. It is fierce, merciless, and brutal. Aldo has let that part of herself take over, drive her actions. I thought saving her from Bridge was my biggest problem. I was wrong. Something happened while she was missing. And it has altered her in a way that she is almost unrecognizable. But she won’t tell me anything. Instead, I’m forced to watch the young and naïve woman I’ve fallen in love with transition into everything I knew she could be; strong, fearless, and unstoppable. The problem is, she’s cut off her humanity, and coupled with those things, she’s a loose cannon. She’s a savage. My name is Daniel O’Sullivan and I’m in love with a broken woman. I will bring her back and remind her of who she really is no matter what it takes. Even if it kills me.
B. N. Toler - What Lies Between
At the core of it, life is a test—an opportunity to prove who we are; what we’re really made of. Short as it was, I’d like to think I lived my life well, that when people remember Ike McDermott, they remember he was a good man. When I look back, I’m proud of who I was. Leaving behind the woman I loved was the hardest thing I’d ever done, and finding peace with the knowledge she was building a life with my brother after I moved on took a strength I didn’t know I had. But George and Charlotte were still alive. I wasn’t. Together, they forged on, and I was okay with that because I knew, one day, Charlotte and I would be reunited. One day she would be mine. All I had to do was wait. Time works differently in the afterlife. Without any ties to the living, it doesn’t so much as slow, but stop altogether. There is no worrying about what is to come, there is only what is. I didn’t know if four days, or fifty years had passed when I found Charlotte by our tree in my corner of the other side. All I knew was she was here, and I would never have to let her go. I finally had my reward for the life I’d lived. But I’d soon learn Fate had other plans, and everything I believed about who I was would be tested once again. Only this time, I wasn’t so sure I could stay strong. This time, I wasn’t sure I could be a good man.

B. N. Toler - Lélekvesztők
Hat évvel ezelőtt egy tragikus baleset megváltoztatta az életem. Örökre. Charlotte a nevem, de általában Charnak hívnak. És van egy különleges képességem: tudok a holtakkal beszélni. Látom azokat a lelkeket, akik nem tudnak átkelni, mert valamilyen elvarratlan szál még itt tartja őket. Fáradhatatlanul segítettem nekik, de ennek az volt az ára, hogy feladtam a saját életem. Végül pénz, otthon és remény nélkül már csak egy megoldást találtam. De abban a pillanatban, ahogy a halálba ugrottam volna, Ike McDermott megmentett. Ez a jóképű katona megmosolyogtat és felvidít mindenkit. Kedves és gyengéd. És nem él. Megállapodást kötöttünk. Segít nekem otthont és munkát találni, ha én is segítek neki. Az ő lezáratlan ügye az ikertestvére. George szétesett Ike halála óta, aki addig nem bír békében átkelni, amíg a bátyja élete egyenesbe nem kerül. Amikor beleegyeztem az alkuba, fogalmam sem volt, hogy bele fogok szeretni mindkettejükbe. Márpedig azzal, ha megmentem George-ot, el kell engednem Ike-ot. De hogyan mondhatnék le a szívem feléről?
B. N. Toler - Where One Goes
What happens when the very thing ruining your life ends up saving it? I was never one to believe in spirits—until six years ago, when a bone-chilling accident changed my life…forever. My name is Charlotte, but most people call me Char…and I have a special gift. I talk to the dead. Make no mistake, I can’t summon them. I’m only able to see and speak to the spirits that linger when they’re unable to crossover. They’re somehow weighted to the world with unfinished affairs. And for the last six years, I’ve relentlessly used my gift to help their lost souls. But it’s come at a price. My life is dark. Feeling despondent, I’ve begun to give up. And in helping the dead, I’ve realized I haven’t allowed myself to live. With no money, no place to go, and most importantly… no hope, I’ve decided there is only one option—to end it all. But fate is a funny thing. One minute, I’m about to leap to my death, and the next, I’m saved by Ike McDermott. The strong, striking soldier stopped me from putting an end to my despair. He’s the kind of man that smiles and brightens an entire room. Sweet and gentle. He is my savior. And he’s dead. We’ve made an agreement. He’ll help me find a place to stay and a new job if I’ll help him with his unfinished business so that he may crossover. Ike’s unfinished matter involves his twin brother, George. George has been falling apart since Ike’s death and Ike has not been able to compel himself to crossover in peace until he knows George will be okay. When I agreed to help, little did I know that I’d fall in love with the charming folks of Bath County, and…Ike and George McDermott. Now, as both brothers own equal parts of my heart, I am faced with a cruel and unfair predicament. In saving George, I must let go of Ike. But how does one let go of half of their heart?
