shelter-sw-coverAfter six long months on the run from her abusive husband, Ash Gantry finally finds a place to call home in Albans, Ontario. It doesn’t take long for her to fall for the small town with the big heart. But more than the town itself, more than its inhabitants, it’s the house on Hawk Street she falls in love with.

But while her heart wants to stay, her head tells her to keep moving. If she keeps moving, her husband will never find her. Only, she’s tired of hiding. Tired of running. Tired of being afraid.

Let him come. She’s staying.

Then she discovers that her new home hides a dark secret, one even more dangerous than the man hunting for her. By the time he finds her, she may already be dead…

Marcelle Dubé’s Shelter crosses women’s fiction with suspense and a frisson of modern gothic. Dubé is the author of Ghosts of Morocco and the Mendenhall Mystery series, including The Shoeless Kid, The Tuxedoed Man, The Weeping Woman and The Untethered Woman.

Two collections

“[Marcelle Dubé] writes deceptively quiet stories that have a real bite to them.”
Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Night Shift collection-ebook coverIn Night Shift: A Mystery Collection, Marcelle Dubé takes the reader to the darker side of small towns with characters who struggle against outside foes and internal demons. This collection features four short stories and a novellette by the author of the Mendenhall Mysteries. The stories include:

“Night Shift”: Driving back to Mendenhall late at night during a thunderstorm, Chief of Police Kate Williams stops to check out an accident only to find herself fighting for her life. A Mendenhall Short Mystery.

“Lincoln City Blues”: When a beautiful woman walks into the office of Anastasia Charles—aka Charlie—with a story about a violent husband and a kidnapped kid, Charlie’s private investigator instincts sit up and pay attention. With two grand on her desk, eight more when she finds the husband and the chance to be a hero and rescue a kid… how can Charlie say no?

“The Priest”: Chief of Police Kate Williams is a little irritated when Constable Trepalli calls her into a routine investigation of a break-in at the priest’s house. Then Trepalli shows her what they found on the priest’s bed. A Mendenhall Short Mystery.

“Leduc”: Leduc knows how not to get noticed, how to bide his time, how to hide what he does. He learned a long time ago, after his mother found the cats. Just a few more weeks, and he’ll have his military police badge. Then he’ll be able to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants… to whomever he wants.

There’s only one problem. Someone knows his secret.

“Jules”: A fall off a cliff, a nighttime attack… Is Jules imagining it, or did someone follow her to the Yukon from Colombia to finally finish her off?

Christmas collection-ebook cover-2In Christmas Magic, Marcelle Dubé sweeps the reader into cozy worlds of Christmas snow, wood stoves, and new romance… with a little mayhem thrown in.

“A Yukon Christmas”: After her 20-year marriage collapses from inertia, Beatrice Talsma sets off on a year-long, cross-Canada journey to discover where she truly belongs. When she reaches the Yukon, however, her short pause turns into a decision to settle down in this strange new place.

In a complete break with the past, she rents a cabin in the Yukon wilderness. It’s a wonderful spot, except that her closest neighbor, Henry Pekarik—also her landlord—seems determined to help Beatrice out, whether she wants it or not. It’s becoming harder and harder to resist the man but the real test comes when he invites her to Christmas dinner with his family.

“McKell’s Christmas”: Deputy Chief of Police Rob McKell doesn’t trust Christmas. Two of his ex-wives left him at Christmas. Besides, bad guys don’t take time off during the holidays so why should he? But when the chief orders skeleton crews at the detachment for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, he has no choice but to comply. Not that he minds, really. He has a Christmas Eve date with the lovely Jillian, a gemologist with an independent streak, for the all-important meeting of her friends.

Jillian isn’t like any woman he’s ever met, and soon he’s revising his opinion of Christmas—and of long-term relationships. But before the evening ends, Jillian’s dangerous past will put both their lives and their fragile new relationship at risk… and prove that McKell’s misgivings about Christmas are well-founded.

“Running Away from Christmas”: When Faith decides to escape Christmas and her friends’ matchmaking efforts by spending the holiday alone in the big city, she never expects to find Christmas waiting there for her.

Faith can’t take another Christmas alone, so she runs away to Vancouver B.C., where… well, I’d like to say the holiday stalks her, but it’s not quite like that. It’s sweeter. A wonderful story, no matter the time of year.” Kristine Kathryn Rusch

Mysterious crying in the middle of the night… a strange light climbing where there are no stairs…

Kate doesn’t like vacations—she’d much rather stay on the job as chief of police of tiny Mendenhall, Manitoba. But her niece Amanda has been working too hard at her fledgling catering company.

Then Cade, a strange, charismatic man whom she once thought she loved, returns to Whitehorse. He wants her to come with him to the fabled Ben-My-Chree, a place deep in the wilderness that calls to her like a siren’s song.
His return sets in motion a chain of disastrous events that will change Lauren’s life forever—and may result in the destruction of the world’s remaining humans.

THE TUXEDOED MAN

A novel by Marcelle Dubé

An ‘accidental’ death, a train wreck and dark secrets in a deadly northern winter:

When a man wearing a tux—but no shoes—turns up dead at the scene of a train crash, Kate Williams, chief of police of a tiny northern town, quickly realizes that his death wasn’t accidental. During one of the most brutal winters in recent memory, Kate needs all her resources to discover how the dead man ended up in the snow. The deeper she digs, the deeper the mystery.

When her beautiful niece suddenly arrives on her doorstep, sowing distraction and rivalry among Kate’s constables, Kate worries that she may have to ship her niece back home, if only to get everyone’s attention back on the guy in the tux.

Then her niece goes missing.

The Tuxedoed Man is the second in the Mendenhall Mysteries series featuring Kate Williams, newly hired chief of police. The first was The Shoeless Kid, in which Kate deals with a mutinous deputy chief and a missing boy, and the Cop Games that have invaded her tiny town.

KIRWAN’S SON

A novel by Emma Faraday

Only the death of a good man can save the human and Fey worlds.

Stories—that’s all they are. Passed down from generation to generation of Kirwans, the stories tell of the pact between the Kirwan ancestor and the Fey King Fin Bheara. But the stories are real and when the call comes, all four Kirwan siblings go to Fin Bheara’s aid to help free the Fey.

In a world of tortured tree nymphs and madness, the Fey king needs only one Kirwan, the eldest son, to save the trapped Fey, but all four Kirwans become pawns in the struggle for power between Seelie and Unseelie.

The Kirwans will risk everything—love, honor, and life—in the name of an oath taken centuries earlier, but will it be at the cost of spreading the Fey war to their own world?
