BOOK BLURB / SYNOPSIS

THE DOUGLAS LEGACY The Douglas sisters, beauties all, are valuable pawns in their family’s bitter struggle to control the Scottish Crown. But when powerful enemies threaten, each Douglas lass will find she must face them alone. CAPTURED BY A LAIRD Haunted by his father’s violent death, David Hume, the new laird of Wedderburn, sets out to make his name so feared that no one will dare harm his family again. The treacherous ally who played on his father’s weakness is dead and beyond David’s vengeance, but his castle and young widow are ripe for the taking. The moment David lays eyes on the dark-haired beauty defending her wee daughters, however, he knows this frail-looking lass is the one person who could bring him to his knees. Wed at thirteen to a man who tried daily to break her spirit, Lady Alison Douglas is looking forward to a long widowhood. But when the fearsome warrior known as the Beast of Wedderburn storms her gates, she finds herself, once again, forced to wed a stranger. Alison is only a pawn to serve his vengeance, so why does this dark warrior arouse such fiery passion and an unwelcome longing in her heart? With death and danger looming, these two wounded souls must learn to trust each other . . . for only love can save them.

 

EXCERPT from CAPTURED BY A LAIRD © by Margaret Mallory 2014

David strode through the battle raging between his men and the castle defenders in the courtyard and headed straight for the keep, intent on his goal.

The castle would fall quickly. The defenders lacked leadership and were in disarray. His only concern was whether the castle had a secret tunnel for escape. During the siege, he had spread his men out through the fields surrounding the fortress to keep watch. But he had concentrated his forces for the attack and most were now inside the castle. If there was a tunnel, he must secure the widow and her daughters before they had a chance to escape. He did not relish the idea of having to chase them down through the fields with dogs.

The defenders had foolishly waited too long to withdraw to the keep, and most were caught in the courtyard when David’s men burst through the gate. He barely spared them a glance as he ran up the steps of the keep.

With several of his warriors at his back, he burst through the doors brandishing his sword. He paused inside the entrance to hall. Women and children were screaming, and the few Blackadder warriors who had made it inside were overturning tables in a useless attempt to set up a defense.

“If ye hope for mercy, drop your weapons,” David shouted, making his voice heard above the chaos.

He locked gazes with the men who hesitated to obey his order until every weapon clanked to the floor, then he swept his gaze over the women. Their clothing confirmed what he’d known the moment he entered the hall. Blackadder’s widow was not in the room.

“Where is she?” he demanded of the closest Blackadder man.

“Who, m’lord?” the man said, shifting his gaze to the side.

“Your mistress!” David picked him up by the front of his tunic and leaned in close. “Tell me now.”

“In her bedchamber,” the man squeaked, pointing to an arched doorway. “’Tis up the stairs.”

David caught a sudden whiff of urine and dropped the man to the floor in disgust. The wretch had wet himself.

“Take him to the dungeon,” he ordered. The coward had given up his mistress far too easily.

David started up the wheeled stairs to the upper floors with his sword at the ready. He expected to encounter Blackadder warriors, protecting the lady of the castle. But there were none on the stairs and none guarding the door on the first floor.

Damn it. She must have escaped. He gritted his teeth as he envisioned the lady’s guards leading her through the tunnel.

He was about to open the chamber door to make sure it was empty when Brian, one of his best men, came down the stairs.

“Laird, I checked all the chambers while ye were in the hall,” he said.

David’s jaw ached from clenching it.

“There’s one door on the floor just above us that wouldn’t open with the latch,” Brian said. “Shall I break it down?”

David waved him aside and pulled the ax from his belt as he raced up the stairs.

“Open it!” he shouted and pounded on the door.

He did not wait. She could be escaping through a secret door this very moment. Three hard whacks with his ax, and the door split. He kicked it until it swung open, then stepped through.

At his first sight of the woman, his feet became fixed to the floor. He felt strange, and his vision was distorted, as if as if he had swallowed a magical potion that narrowed his sight. He could see nothing in the room but her.

She was extraordinarily lovely, with violet eyes, pale skin, and shining black hair. But there was something about her, something beyond her beauty, that held him captive. She was young, much younger than he expected, and her features and form were delicate, in marked contrast to the violent emotion in her eyes.

David knew to the depths of his soul that a brute like him should not be the man to claim this fragile flower, even while the word mine beat in his head like a drum. He had no notion of how long he stood staring at her before he became aware that she held a sword. It was longer still before he noticed the two wee lasses peeking out from behind her like frightened kittens.

Anger boiled up in his chest. Every Blackadder man in the castle who could still draw breath should have been here, standing between him and their lady. Instead, she faced him alone with a sword she could barely lift with both hands.

It was a brave, but ridiculous gesture.

There was no defense against him.

Why a Mystery Lover Writes Romance by AE Jones

September 15, 2014 By: Romance Junkies Category: Latest News

Why a Mystery Lover Writes Romance

Thanks Romance Junkies for having me here today! I thought this would be the perfect venue to talk about why a mystery lover like myself writes romance. I have to confess that until about six or seven years ago, I didn’t read romance. Now before you start throwing virtual tomatoes or cabbage, please let me explain.

As a kid I read Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. And my obsession with mysteries grew from there. I was all about the cozies. Books upon books of quirky female leads who were college professors, or writers, or teachers, or ran a bed & breakfast or a quilt shop. And they were all able to figure out who the killer was ahead of the police without (just barely) getting themselves killed. And I loved the thrill as a reader of figuring out who the killer is before it is announced at the end of the book. I still giggle when I do that.

So why, you may ask, would I write romance? Because as much as I love the thrill of solving a puzzle. I also want to read about relationships. Now wait. Before I start receiving hate mail from you mystery lovers as well, let me clarify. Yes, there are relationships in mysteries. But they often take a long, long time to develop. More often than not, the heroines plow along on their lonesome or with the help of their animal friends who often figure out the killer before their human counterparts!

Every once in a while I would run into a mystery series that actually has the obstinate female marrying the acerbic cop (after a few books of course). And I liked that. I wanted to see the characters evolve and become part of a relationship.

So you can imagine my reaction when I first picked up a romance…

Wait a minute? Are you telling me that you can figure out who done it and still have time to get a little somethin’, somethin’ on the side? Well sign me up!

I didn’t have to read four books in the series before the heroine actually kissed someone. And more importantly, the conflict in the book wasn’t just centered on the murder. There was plenty of angst related to the relationship as well which made the story all the more addictive.

So I write romances that usually has a mystery thrown in (cause this girl still gives homage to her mystery-reading roots). And to make things even more interesting, my characters are paranormal. Vamps, demons, shifters, are all part of the mystery brigade trying to figure out who killed who. Or rather what killed what.

I guess you could say I write romanstery!

My debut novel, Mind Sweeper, falls in this category and released today. So you will be treated to both a mystery and a romance in one neat package.

2013 RWA Golden Heart® Winner, Mind Sweeper

Kyle was born with the ability to erase memories, and the inability to keep her opinions to herself. She and her teammates – a vampire who looks like a sexy pirate with fangs, and a Shamat demon with a penchant for Italian pastries – provide supernatural damage control when humans see too much. Today’s problem? A sword-wielding angel and a demon had a supernatural smackdown during happy hour in a Cleveland bar, leaving behind a headless vampire and a dozen human witnesses.

This latest supernatural slip-up is attracting all kinds of attention. So much attention that the police step in, and Kyle has to deal with Joe Dalton, a know-it-all human with the sexiest turquoise eyes she has ever seen. Kyle has no room in her life for yet another human who will treat her like a freak. However, Dalton definitely makes her naughty parts sit up and take notice, and it’s more than mutual. But before they can act on their attraction, they must join forces to solve a dangerous puzzle. And when they uncover the truth, the apocalyptic ripple effect forces Kyle to make a choice. Learn to trust again, or risk losing everyone she cares about, including Dalton.

No woman ever really forgets her first love. Callie Sorenson is no exception. Hers was tall, tanned, and – as her older brother’s best friend – completely off limits.
 
Danny McCutcheon.
 
It’s a name that Callie hasn’t spoken in years, even

thoughts. Or her heart. But now a twist of fate will bring her back to the
childhood home she left behind years ago, and to the hometown boy for whom she secretly longed.
 
When her mother takes a bad fall and breaks her hip, Callie leaves the bright lights of New York City to fly back west and help with the rehabilitation. It’s a tense homecoming due to a long time estrangement
between mother and daughter, and it drives Callie to confront both a painful personal loss and her unanswered questions about the father who abandoned her when she was just a child. It also brings her face to face with Danny again, and Callie quickly realizes that old feelings die hard.
 
But for Danny, it’s new feelings that are a problem. Callie is not the young girl he remembers but a woman now, and a very desirable one. They both have reasons to fight the growing attraction between them, but the temptation may just prove to be too much to resist, despite some very real
risk to their hearts. The past casts a long shadow over the future, though, and Callie will have to overcome it or else face losing the one man who means the most to her.

All About Charming Alice: J. Arlene Culiner
Alice Treemont has given up hope of meeting the right man and falling in love. Living in depopulated Blake’s Folly, a community of rusting cars, clapboard shacks and thirsty weeds, she cooks vegetarian meals, rescues unwanted dogs and protects the most unloved creatures on earth: snakes. What man would share those interests? Certainly not Jace Constant whose
life in Chicago includes elegant women, fine dining and contemporary art. He’s in Nevada doing research for his new book but definitely won’t be staying: he hates the desert’s bleakness, the dust on his fine leather shoes and the dog hair on his cashmere sweaters. As for snakes — they terrify him.
 
So why does the air sizzle each time Alice and Jace meet? Why are they so fascinated by each other? Their feelings might go deeper than raw desire, but any long-term relationship is clearly doomed.
 
In need of juicy gossip, the other 52 residents of Blake’s Folly have decided Alice has been alone for long enough. The attraction between her and Jace is so obvious, why worry about differences? If you trust in love, solutions do appear. But don’t those solutions call for too many
compromises, too much self-sacrifice?
 
Born in New York, raised in Toronto, J.Arlene Culiner has spent most of her life in England, Germany, Turkey, Greece, Hungary and the Sahara but now resides in a 300-year-old former inn in a French village of no real interest. Much to everyone’s dismay, she rescues and protects all living creatures — especially spiders, bats and snakes; her wild (or wildlife) garden is a classified butterfly and bird reserve. She can be found at: www.j-arleneculiner.com and at: www.jill-culiner.com
Broken Wings, Soaring Hearts: Beverly A. Rogers
Hailey Holman is a woman determined to keep her dad’s memory and his dream of reopening their small-town Texas base station alive. Jack Stinson is looking for a peaceful place to escape the rat race of the big city life and big city business of his own family’s airplane manufacturing business.
 
What a perfect match. Other than the fact that her mom hates the flying business with a passion and fights Hailey’s every effort, and Jack’s dad fought his every effort to make the break, then disowned him for leaving. Throw in two town bullies who insist on opening a base station of their own and reeking havoc on Hailey’s plans and her own determination not to
get personally involved with the employees, and it’s anything but smooth
sailing.
 
But these two focused pilots might just be surprised how things can work out with enough stubbornness . . . and faith.
 
Beverly A. Rogers is a Texas girl who writes with a heart as big as the Lone Star State. Her idea of a romantic man isn’t someone who will promise her the moon and the stars. It’s someone who will walk on the beach holding her hand, watching the moon and the stars from her eyes . . . and never complain about sand in his boots.  Learn more about Bev at www.BeverlyARogers.com.
Charmed: Inés Saint
Jamie Sullivan is a fun-loving, widowed mother of twin five-year old boys. A creative goldsmith with her own line of designer charms, she is determined to forge her own unique brand of success. Jamie guards a painful secret that leads her to be emphatic about not letting a man into her life.
 
Nick Grey is the gorgeous, charming, and daydream-inducing headmaster of the private elementary school Jamie’s children will attend. After single-handedly bringing up his daughter while earning his doctorate and proving himself to the school’s board of directors and the community, he feels burned out. Come the end of the semester, Nick is taking a year off to travel the world. 
 
When they meet, an instant attraction blazes through both. Nick and Jamie soon find their hard earned peace of mind threatened by meddling matchmakers, old rivalries, and children who can’t keep their feet out of their mouths. But Nick’s not interested in starting over and raising kids again, and Jamie’s sure she can’t trust her heart. Will they be able to nurture their friendship and attraction
into something that can last forever?
Ines was born in Zaragoza, Spain and have moved approximately twenty times. I went to school in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico and I’m bilingual and bicultural. I’ve spent the last ten years raising my fun, inspiring little boys and sharing my life with the man I’d always dreamed of.

Book Summary:

A new novel by the USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Breathing Series . . .  What if you had a second chance to meet someone for the first time? Cal Logan is shocked to see Nicole Bentley sitting across from him at a coffee shop thousands of miles from their hometown. After all, no one has seen or heard from her since they graduated over a year ago.  Except this girl isn’t Nicole.

She looks exactly like Cal’s shy childhood crush, but her name is Nyelle Preston and she has no idea who he is. This girl is impulsive and daring, her passion for life infectious. The complete opposite of Nicole. Cal finds himself utterly fascinated-and falling hard. But Nyelle is also extremely secretive. And the closer he comes to finding out what she’s hiding, the less he wants to know. When the secrets from the past and present collide, one thing becomes clear: Nothing is what it seems.

When You Make It Home

Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.

 

When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.

 

Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?

Author Interview:

Please tell us a little bit about your current project?

My debut novel, WHEN YOU MAKE IT HOME was released a few weeks ago. It’s the story of a smart businesswoman who has an unplanned pregnancy and is busy trying to keep it a secret. She attends a welcome home party for a wounded warrior and becomes friends with him after he discovers her secret.

 

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?

Well, I’ve always enjoyed writing and I thought about how cool it must be to write for a living, but I never considered it a real life option. Then after I became a mother and started telling my children they could do anything they wanted, I rethought the limits I’d put on myself. I figured, why not write a novel? Why stop myself from something I want?

 

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?

I attended a Nora Roberts chat at the Romance Writers of America Conference this year. She said, “Writing is a habit. Don’t break the habit.” That has stayed with me. Writing is hard work. It’s lots of fun and rewarding, but it’s also a lot of hard work. At times it can be easy to make excuses not to write. I now tell myself: Don’t break the habit.

 

Describe the “perfect” hero for you?

Ohhh… I’m never comfortable with the word perfect, but I like funny guys. I want someone I can be silly with, but someone who can also be serious when the occasion calls for it. Like when I’m naked.

 

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?

Reading is my favorite pastime and hobby, and books are the only things I collect. As a mom of three, I don’t have much free time at this stage in my life. The great thing about being an avid reader is I can always find time to fit it in my day. I read in the pick-up line at school. I keep my phone apps loaded with books for when I’m stuck in a doctor’s waiting room or in line at the grocery store, or wherever.

If your fairy godmother waved her wand and whisked you away to the location of your choice, which place would you choose, and why?

I’m an ocean girl. Put me on the beach, fairy godmother! I’m not picky. Just somewhere with good waves, a nice shore to walk along, and I’ll be in heaven. Shovels and buckets would be nice, too. I’m a sandcastle engineer. Oh, a kite! I want a kite, too. That’s it! I’m going to pack right now.

 

When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type who will try anything once, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true foods and recipes?

I’ll try almost anything at someone’s house or at a restaurant.

I don’t experiment cooking. I’m a terrible cook. I’m much better at baking. I can make anything that has a high sugar/chocolate ratio in the recipe.

 

How do you describe yourself? How would your family and friends describe you?

I’m kind of goofy. I worry about things a lot, and the more I worry the more I crack jokes. I also sing and dance for the sole purpose of making my kids laugh. Works every time.

My friends don’t get to see this, though. I save my moves for at home.

 

What is your favorite comfort food?

Steak and potatoes. I don’t eat either often, but when I do, I feel like I can take over the world. Especially if I have a Jack and Coke on the side.

 

What is your favorite season? What do you love about it?

Both Fall and Spring fill me with hope. I love the change in weather. The feeling like a new adventure is right in front of me. I believe that every day is a new chance to make things right. The beginning of a new season creates that feeling personified.

What project are you working on next?

WHEN YOU MAKE IT HOME is the first in a series. I’m working on the second book in the series, as well as a new adult romance, with a darker twist.

Title: Taking Control 

Author: Jen Frederick

Release Date: September 8, 2014

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Taking-Control

Summary

The hotly anticipated sequel to Losing Control.

I thought I needed only one thing in my life–the money and power to crush one man. But the moment I laid eyes on Victoria Corielli, my thirst for revenge was replaced by my craving for her.

No rule would keep me away; no obstacle too large to overcome. Not her will, not our differing social positions, not my infamous past. When she lost everything, I helped her pick up the pieces. When she trusted me with everything, she sealed her fate.

I’ve convinced Victoria she can put her heart in my hands. Now I have to protect it–from her shady stepfather and my business rivals, from enemies known and hidden. I’ll do anything to keep her. And I might have to prove it, because now Victoria’s risking more than her heart to be with me; she’s risking her life.

TCTeaser2

Excerpt

 

I want us to get married. Soon. Do you want a big wedding?”

 

“Married? I mean, I guess I thought you were serious but I figured…I don’t know.” Her voice trails off.

 

“That my proposal of marriage was somehow insincere? I’ve never wanted anything more. I just didn’t want to pressure you because of all the emotional upheaval you’re experiencing now.” Rolling over so she can see me and judge the sincerity for herself, I declare, “I want you to be my wife. The mother of any children we have. My partner in life. I want that to happen now so that I can introduce you as Mrs. Ian Kerr.”

 

Her eyes close for a moment and beneath the lids, silent tears leak out. Her words, though, are classic. “Maybe you should take my name. You can be Ian Corielli and I’ll introduce you as Mr. Victoria Corielli.”

 

“As long as it means you’re mine in the eyes of the world, I’ll be Mr. John Smith.”

 

She wraps her arms around my neck and clings to me. This time the shudders I’m soothing are from maybe, possibly, hopefully joy for our future. “I’m okay with Victoria Kerr,” she chokes out. “You better give me a big rock and lots of flowers since you’re proposing to me while we’re naked.”

 

“I proposed to you when I first took you to the house on the Long Island Sound.”

 

“You didn’t propose. You said that you wanted me to be your wife and fill your big house with lots of little people.”

 

“That’s a proposal.”

 

“It was a demand.”

 

“It was a request couched as a demand.”

 

Her body is shaking with laughter. “You’ve been in charge for too long. That was no request.”

 

Pushing to my knees, I reach into the nightstand and retrieve the box I bought before Sophie died. Her eyes grow huge and her hands come up to the cover her mouth. I flip the box lid open, pluck the ring out and toss it aside.

 

Lifting her shaking hand in mine, I slide the ring down her finger.

 

“When I was fifteen I made a hundred different stupid vows. I’d avenge my mother. I’d rise to the top of Wall Street and smite everyone down. I’d crush Richard Howe beneath the sole of my boot. I’d win at everything. But I never wished for happiness because I didn’t know what it was until you came into my life. How could I want something I didn’t know was missing? Now, everything I’ve achieved pales in comparison to having you love me. When I say that you’re my heart, my everything, those aren’t just words. They are the only truth in my world. I’d give up money, revenge, success, as long as I could lie down next to you at night and wake up with your face beside mine.

 

There is no greater achievement in my life than having you fall in love with me and I recognize on some mysterious level that is pure luck. I need you to marry me and be my wife. I need you to be the mother of my children. I need you because without you I am nothing. I am a pile of bones and flesh filled with misery. You bring me to life. Love me, marry me, be with me in this life and into all the ones we live from this point ever after.”

 

“Well, since you put it like that, I guess I must.” She rises and kisses me. Our mouths sealing the promises we’ve made to another one another.

 

I make love to her again then, slowly. We barely move. I just slide in and we rock together and allow the strength of our emotions to carry us into the heaven.

Carlos-and-Casey-200x300

Blurb: Recently divorced, Casey has been longing for a man’s touch. So when business brings her back to Carlos, the one that got away, it has to be fate. The four years apart have only done him better, and all she can think about is having his arms, and body, wrapped around hers. But Carlos is not the same man he was four years ago, and Casey too is feeling the weight of too much time gone by. Can Casey help reignite his fire or has time left them behind?

EXCERPT:

Her breath caught as she followed him up the staircase, tucked to the far side of the house. Carlos had always been fit enough, but it looked like he’d taken up some new form of exercise in the past four years. He was beefier, yet still lean. His ass moved round and tight in front of her as they climbed the stairs. At the landing, he gestured in front of them.

“This is my studio, but it’s all yours for tonight.”

It was a rec room that took up the whole second floor, and far more standard male than the ground floor alluded to. Movie posters, gaming systems, books scattered on floors and coffee tables, and, off to one side, the trumpet, asleep in a bed of sheet music. In the corner there was an overstuffed couch just about as wide as she was long – it would be great to sleep on, even better if he could bend her over that armrest and fuck her until dinner was ready.

She cleared her throat, deciding adult friendships could be fun, even after four questionable years. “I thought I’d be sharing a bed with you?” She tried to keep her tone playful as she sauntered toward the couch. She tossed him a smile and she caught a glimpse of him looking very stricken. Shit. Too far. Things are too different now. Abort!

Maybe too much time had passed in general. Maybe he was courting a girl and wanted to take it slow with her. Maybe he no longer found her attractive, four years becoming the dagger in the heart. Maybe he’d become celibate, or found her life too normal and boring. There was a whole list of reasons why she shouldn’t make the first move.

“I was just joking,” she said after a moment, rolling her eyes. “Come on, lighten up.”

He exhaled slowly, looking down at the ground as his tongue found the corner of his mouth. “I know it was a joke, Case.”

“In case you forgot, we used to share a bed.” She looked at him pointedly, already horrified that the words were coming from her lips. What was the getting at? Who had authorized this dialogue?

He squeezed his eyes shut and laughed softly. “Oh, I remember.”

 

Author Interview:

I am so glad you could join us here at RomanceJunkies. To start, will you please tell us a little bit about your current projects? Thanks for having me here! My current release is “Carlos and Casey”, an erotic short story looking at two ex-lovers who are meeting up for the first time in four years. Casey is recently divorced and a business trip brings her into Carlos’ town. Neither really knows if that spark is still there. We’ve all been in that situation where the passage of time makes you unsure about a previous relationship. For Casey, she’s just caught between pretending there’s no sexual attraction whatsoever and ripping his shirt off in broad daylight.

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer? In utero, perhaps. Really, “being a writer” has been one of my longest held goals. There was no beginning moment – it’s just something that’s been part of me since I can remember.

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day? Can I be totally meta with this? One of my best friend’s and I grew up writing novels together (it’s no surprise she’s ALSO a romance author these days, too!) and we used to use things we learned in our editing meetings as fodder for an eventual creative writing manual. One of the genius one-liners we came up with was “Write to discover, not to wither”. If that’s not as self-explanatory as I think it is, essentially it’s referencing the fact that writing is a discovery process, and one must discover the story through the act of writing. But if there’s withering happening, then maybe you need to start over.

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?

What has been your biggest adventure to date? One of my favourite adventures was a 3-month backpacking trip that started in the Middle East and ended in the UK. I went with my best friend, the one mentioned above as co-conspirator in this soon-to-be-legendary creative writing manual. We couch surfed, visited more historical sites than you could shake a stick at, and wrote an excessive amount along the way. We also snuck into the Coliseum in Rome, mishandled bidets in Jordan, and wore Bedouin scarves in every country.

When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type who will try anything once, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true foods and recipes? I will try anything. I started traveling in my early 20s and that began a swift and steady demolition of my formerly narrow tastes. My approach to new foods is “Taste it, and then figure out what it is”. This led to me discovering that I really do enjoy a variety of things I thought I’d hated. Including octopus.

What is this romance writer’s idea of the “ideal romantic evening”? Some 1920’s jazz, a homemade dinner, and a big bottle of Malbec wine!

What is your favorite comfort food? Graham crackers in milk!

What is your favorite season? What do you love about it? It’s a tie between spring and fall – though I do love summer and winter as well. But spring and fall are invigorating transition periods for me. I am always much more inspired during these times. I feel more alive then, so much so that I feel like spring could sometimes kill me with how much it invigorates me!

What is the one modern convenience that you cannot do without? My laptop! I’m not sure I remember how to creatively write in a notebook anymore, like I used to when I was younger. I need typing, so the thoughts can flow out faster!

What project are you working on next? At the moment, I’m finishing up my first romantic suspense novel. It’s been a wild ride with this one – there’s a baby bounty hunter, a freak snowstorm, and lots of funny dialogue between the leads. Not to mention a healthy helping of sexual tension and steamy scenes!

Any place we can find you in person or on the net this month or next? This month, I’ll be at the Midwestern Book Lover’s Unite Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota! It’s Sep 26th through 28th and if anyone is going, stop over and say hi! I’m the girl with blonde dreadlocks (can’t miss me!) and I love spontaneous and random discussions about anything you can throw at me.

Heat flares between the two despite their differences, which infuriates Cayenne to no end. Hawthorn wants to wring Cayenne’s neck, right after having his way with her.

Read An Excerpt

He didn’t want to have to drag her all the way to a tree. It was bad enough he’d need to tie her up. Elfess plus honey would be a nice treat for the malevolent fairy. He’d be more than willing to come back for a fresh bite. The disease inside him wouldn’t settle for anything less once it smelled the flesh and honey mix, like sugar to ants. There was no other way the bounty would come back otherwise, and if he didn’t pay off his gambling debt, then someone would be sent for him. Sent to hurt him until he paid. Mother Earth forgive him for his trespasses against this female. If he thought the bounty would come for a male dipped in honey, he’d do it himself, but the fear she would put off would be all consuming for the wicked Malevolent that had taken over the creature.

He waited for the trees to surround them, for plenty of space between the hunter office and Cayenne. When she figured out what he was doing to her, he wanted to be far enough no one would hear her foul mouth.

“So where are we headed?” Cayenne asked.

“Go for that skinny tree over to the left.” His voice came out low and even, thankfully. He chose the skinniest tree he could so the rope would fit around it and her. If he worked fast enough and took her by surprise, she wouldn’t know what he was doing until it was too late. Besides, she carried a good right hook, and he didn’t want to feel it again so soon.

Cayenne sauntered over to the brown trunk and stopped. She glanced up the tree and then back down to the ground. “What’s so special about this one?”

Thorn took a deep breath. His heart protested loudly in his chest. If he was going to do this, now was his chance.

Author Interview:

please tell us a little bit about your current projects?

I have several projects in the works, demons and elves are my inspiration at the moment.

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?

I was in 5th grade over at a friend’s house. I can’t remember exactly what we were talking about but I do remember opening the fridge and telling her I would be an author.

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?

One piece of advice- I don’t remember who gave it to me, possibly several authors, but it’s to keep writing.

What are some of your favorite pastimes? Do you have any hobbies or collections?

Actually I have three different things I collect other than books of course. Pens, I have a giant board that I hang all my pens on. Fairies, shelves and shelves of the beautiful creatures my fiancé calls them my army. Last I collect Skylanders, which is a little kids video game with game pieces and I am just addicted.

When it comes to food, are you the adventurous type who will try anything once, or do you prefer to stick to tried and true foods and recipes?

I will try anything once.

What is your favorite comfort food?

Salsbury steak, mashed potatoes, and corn…all mixed together

What is your favorite season? What do you love about it?

I adore the Summer. I like all the colors that come out in the warm weather and I love the heat.

What is the one modern convenience that you cannot do without? Bathrooms

What is this romance writer’s idea of the “ideal romantic evening”?

Ideal romantic evening: A home made dinner, maybe some candles, connecting with the person I love.

Dark Wolf Enterprises

A.M Griffin

 Murder, mayhem and imprinting with a hot wolf shifter… And they say being an accountant is boring.

The big break Trudi Hollander’s small accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.

And then there are the assassins who can jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…

Kristof has no intention of giving in to his inner wolf and claiming Trudi. She’s human. Too fragile to withstand being a shifter’s mate. But the need to protect her is stronger than his resolve, and his desire is more powerful yet. He’ll fight with everything he has to keep her safe, both from those who would hurt her, and from himself.

 

Building Bridges

Amy Ruttan

 A vet tech and a lone wolf rancher ride out a sudden storm, but can they weather the emotions they stir up in each other…

Vet tech Molly has the hots for new rancher William, even though he’s ornery and a bit of a lone wolf. She’s willing to take a chance and enjoy a stolen moment of passion in his arms, but she’s having doubts about leaving everything she knows behind to follow her dream.

William has saved up for years to finally get his grandfather’s ranch up and running again. Escaping into the foothills of Alberta is a good place to hide from the ghosts of his past. All he wants is to be left alone, but that’s kind of hard when a sexy vet tech seems to be always around.

After a sudden storm during an Indian summer forces them indoors, the temperature inside the cabin begins to rise. William helps Molly see that her dream is worth pursuing while she shows him maybe he doesn’t have to be alone after all. As the temperature plummets William gives Molly one ride she’ll never forget.

Three Strikes

Anya Richards

Two lonely men. One secret affair. Irresistible passion that will push them both to the breaking point, and beyond.

 A knife attack left ex-Jamaican Posse member Vincent Williams scarred and also made him re-evaluate his life. He’s out of the gang and also the closet but lonely, yet to meet a man who’s interested in more than a one-and-done, a brief sexual encounter.

Because of his career as a police officer, Sergeant Kyle Pictou is afraid of coming out. Normally he doesn’t get involved with anyone close to home, but something about Vincent compels him to take a chance. It’s just sex, after all. Yet, as desire evolves into friendship and seemingly boundless passion, it’s Kyle who’s left wanting more—though he knows he can’t have it.

A Cowboy’s Seduction

Cynthia D’Alba

 One exhausted cowboy + One uptight account x A tropical resort = A hot seduction. But who is seducing whom?

 Brock Wade has raised his brothers and sister since their parents’ deaths fourteen years ago. All work and no vacation can make a cowboy a tad grumpy, or at least that’s what his family and crew believe. Brock wants to spend the two weeks before Christmas working as usual. Instead he’s forced by his siblings to take a vacation to the Sand Castle Resort…a vacation he doesn’t want to a Caribbean resort he’s never heard of. He’s sure he’ll be miserable the whole time.

Natalie Diamond is dreaming of getting out of icy Memphis and down to her parents’ oceanfront condo for a couple of weeks of rest and warmth. When her parents accept an out-of-town invitation, she’s sure she’ll be stuck at home watching it sleet and snow. But instead of leaving Natalie shivering, her parents send her on an all-expense paid trip to the Sand Castle Resort.

A casual friendship over drinks rapidly evolves into a hot seduction, which is great until feelings get involved. When vacation is over, Brock and Natalie are forced to make the difficult decision to walk away or see where life might lead them.

But falling in love in two weeks isn’t possible. Right?

Born to Sin

Danica Avet

 A tomboy in love makes a desperate attempt to seduce her best friend and succeeds beyond her wildest dreams. But this Alpha male isn’t easily tamed and has secrets that could very well tear them apart.

 Just another one of the guys. That’s how Taylor Guillory has always been treated in her hometown of Grand Terre, Louisiana. And for the most part she never minded until Sinclair “Sin” Rivas opened up shop in town. With his dangerous eyes and legendary sex god status, Sin is so far out of her league, but that doesn’t stop Taylor from falling in love with the impossible man, or doing something so daring and unlike her for the chance to be with him.

Knowing he’s no good for her, Sin has stayed far away from Taylor since the day she walked into his shop, but when the little spitfire propositions him in the middle of the bar, there’s no way he’ll be able to walk away from the temptation. But his one-night only rule when it comes to women is challenged by the pleasure they experience, making him think that he might be a one-woman man after all.

But Sin has secrets that could very well destroy anything they forge together. Can a man born of sin find redemption in the arms of a woman just as tough as any man?

The Sound of Your Name

Felice Fox

Their silent erotic encounters change his luck and awaken his soul, but secrets and cowboy superstitions can only keep them apart.

Ellie Donovan couldn’t care less about pro bull riders, until she’s sent out on the circuit to do a story about them for Modern Luxury magazine. She’d done many things to get a great story, but pimping herself out to a cowboy who thinks she’s the only thing keeping him on track for the gold buckle isn’t one of them. Being sexy Brody’s good luck charm isn’t exactly a hardship—until she discovers she doesn’t want it to end.

Brody Cameron can’t help bowing to cowboy superstition on the night he should have lost his spot on the pro circuit, when a secret tryst with a pretty stranger changed his luck, and his heart, forever. Caught between the love he wants and the money his family needs, Brody can’t share the truth with Ellie and risk losing his shot at the big money.

But when Cameron family secrets are exposed, and a jealous rival threatens to tear them apart, can Ellie and Brody break their silence without breaking each other’s hearts?

 

Beneath the Pages

Jennifer Kacey

One wicked night with her did nothing but whet his appetite. Now he’ll settle for nothing less than her complete submission.

 Acacia owns and runs Fame, one of the hottest celebrity magazines in the country. She survives on convincing the rich and famous to reveal things they would normally do anything to keep hidden. She lives, eats and breathes the magazine. Day in and day out. She has no life, nothing to keep in the dark. Nothing but the night she gave herself over to the one man she never should have wanted.

Radigan, the most sought after actor in Hollywood, wants her again, and won’t take no for an answer. He had her for one night. Several hours of the best sex of his entire life, but she was gone the next morning before the sun had fully risen. His attempts to contact her have gone unanswered. Everything he’s tried so far has been a miserable failure. But he finally knows what to do to slip beneath the pages of her heart.

This time he’s playing for keeps and the exclusive rights to her body, heart and soul.

Cruising for Love

Lynne Silver

 A vacation cruise comes with surprises—like the BDSM theme and her high school love, the one man she can’t resist.

 When Andi Greene heads out on a cruise, she’s pumped for a fun week of sun bathing and chilling with her best friend. Little does she know her best friend has a number of surprises in store. The first is the cruise’s theme of bondage and domination. The other? Ship’s doctor Jonah Coleman, Andi’s first love, her high school boyfriend—the boy she thought she’d marry before he moved across the country and eventually dropped her cold. But there’s nothing cold about their reunion. Instead sparks fly, and Andi’s relaxing cruise seems set to turn into a week of hot loving.

Jonah can’t believe he’s getting a second chance with Andi—a grown-up Andi who might need more than he knows how to give. But he’s willing to put everything on the line to find out if the heat between them is just the remnants of teenage love or something more. And even though he has to let her go again, he’s determined this time she’ll never forget him.

Whipped

Sabrina York

 A scalding attraction. An irresistible passion. A pity she’s the one woman he can never have…

 Dane Coulter is mourning the loss of his best friend, fellow Special Ops buddy, Cody. Oh, Cody didn’t die. It’s worse. He’s getting married. Cody is, in Dane’s opinion,whipped.

Dane swears he will never suffer the same fate. But when he meets a woman who can take all his dominant loving and beg for more, he realizes he may have met his match. It’s a damn shame she’s the one woman in the world his man-code deems untouchable…his best friend’s sister.

Chief Sin

Sayde Grace

 A taste of Sin isn’t enough. Instead she wants all of him, including the heart she once broke.

 Mavis Tanem has the world at her feet. She’s young, wealthy, and independent, yet none of that means anything. All she cares about is vengeance. Destroying her father. There’s no place in her life for softness—for love. Yet one missing brother brings her back to where it all started, and back to Bowie Sinet, the man she broke.

The devil was back in Tanem, Texas and Bowie is ready for the smart-mouthed and sexy as hell woman who’d torn his heart to pieces. As sheriff he’s used his handcuffs for a lot, but what he wants to do with them and Mavis might just be against the law, in more ways than one.

A single night is too much and yet not enough for either of them. They both know it’s too late to change the past, but maybe together they can exorcise the ghosts that haunt them, and find some peace.

Make Me Surrender

Tina Donahue

 When it comes to two of the hottest guys in town, she has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts.

 For over a year, Mercy’s had her eye on Travis and Dutch, two of the hottest guys on the Oregon coast. Dark and dangerously virile, Travis owns a saloon that caters to bikers. Dutch looks like one, right down to his impressive tats, and operates a motorcycle repair shop on the premises.

When a position opens in the saloon’s kitchen, Mercy sees a way to be near these sinfully sexy men, wanting the job and lodging, her cabin snuggled between theirs.

Travis isn’t so sure about having Mercy nearby. She’s deliciously curvy, but too nice. He’s into temporary fun. To Dutch, forever is a dirty word.

Imagine their surprise when sweet little Mercy encourages wild nights of carnal pleasure with a dash of bondage and spanking…followed by friendship and tenderness.

Before she’s through, these tough guys won’t know what hit them.
