Added Part 13 - The Final Chapter of Hoosier Daddy by Ann McMan and Salem West [Original/Alt/Complete]
Jill Fryman (her friends call her Friday) is a Line Supervisor at a truck manufacturing plant in a small southern Indiana town. Life on the assembly line is almost as predictable as her love life. When it comes to matters of the heart, Friday always seems to be making the wrong choices. Things go from bad to worse when a sultry labor organizer from the U.A.W. sweeps into town to try and unionize the plant, right after it's been bought out by a Japanese firm. Sparks fly on and off the line as the two women fight their growing attraction for each other against a backdrop of monster trucks, pork chop suppers, and a bar called "Hoosier Daddy."

A Bit of the Old West by Carole Mortenson [Original/Alt/Incomplete]
When Sarah Davis moves to Laramie, Wyoming, to help take care of her
sister Sylvia's children, she accidentally meets choir
director/bartender Lindsey Hobbs, who also manages an old western town
tourist attraction. The headstrong Lindsey is always in control and
used to having her way--especially with women. So she is totally
unprepared when she finds out Sarah has her own ideas about control.
Sylvia's dire warnings to Sarah about Lindsey's sordid past threatens
to keep them apart, and Lindsey's secret agenda while conducting a
Bible Study almost backfires on her. After a tragedy involving
Lindsey's preacher/father and interference from her twin sister
Leslie, everything comes to a head. Is the love between Lindsey and
Sarah strong enough to triumph?

UPDATE ON TIDES BY ANNE AZEL FROM CASEY'S BLOG No publisher intentionally puts out a book full of errors, and it can only mean there was a breakdown in the production process. It happens, but that doesn't mean it has to stay wrong. The production team at Bedazzled Ink discovered that the wrong version of Tides by Anne Azel was produced. This is an unacceptable and regrettable error for readers and the author. Fortunately, books are printed on paper and transmitted in digital Ink, not engraved in stone. The correct version of Tides is now available everywhere you buy books. It will have “Corrected Edition” on the copyright page, so you know which edition you have. We will quickly replace any uncorrected edition at no charge, any format. Just send an email to email@example.com. Tell us where you purchased your copy of Tides, the date of purchase, and the format (paperback, mobi (Kindle), epub (Nook, Kobo), pdf). If you purchased a paperback, please include your snail mail. Thank you for your continued support.
Claudia, Casey, and everyone at Bedazzled Ink

Lesbian Romance, contemporary women
Micah Connolly had spent most of her life trying to please others, starting with her family, and ending with Olivia Holden. When she found out that her beloved grandmother had passed away, she was bereft and sought solace with the only person she thought might offer her comfort. Olivia Holden was full of mixed messages, none of them clear, but most of them leaning towards a keen interest in Micah. Their first kiss was a disaster. Overwrought with emotion, she had meant to tell Olivia she had to go home and get her grandmother's affairs in order, but instead, the night ended in a volatile exchange of words that sent Micah running.
Well over a year had passed since that fateful night, and Olivia still regretted her strict adherence to a set of rules that made her lose the one woman she felt she could love. Chance and fate changes everything when she recognizes Micah weaving her bike wildly through the busy streets of New York.
When Micah and Olivia finally meet again, it isn't your standard happy reunion. Micah had changed, a lot. She was now darker, edgier, and carried a secret blacker than the leathers she prefers to wear. This new Micah also wasn't the sort who would accept Olivia taking charge of their budding relationship. Micah had come to terms with a part of herself she had kept hidden, including some things that she wasn't so sure the high-powered attorney would be game for.
A subtle and erotic game of power play ensues, one that both surprises and delights Micah, but also leaves her with a difficult choice. The past still haunts her, a past requiring an explanation that could tear down all of her carefully constructed walls. Every risk has its own rewards, but what Micah is risking could destroy her.
