Out Now – Wild After Dark Anthology by Various Authors #erotica #menage #paranormal

Hi everyone,

Hot on the heels of my release earlier this month, Native Tongue, I’m delighted to announce I also have a story out in an anthology from Totally Bound Publishing. Here’s the skinny:

wildafterdarkBeyond the Poison Chalice by Helena Maeve

Coveting the enemy is simply to die for.

Claudia Salizar has given blood, sweat and tears to the tenuous armistice between the factions that inhabit St. Louis. She rules the north side with an iron fist, striving to keep the peace between vampires, werewolves and humans no matter the cost. Stumbling across two mysterious intruders who may jeopardize everything she’s worked for is no small inconvenience.

The pair need safe passage out of the vampire quarter and they’re willing to negotiate. Claudia is immediately drawn to Silver, a human with an unusually delectable scent whose tantalizing touch brings her to the height of ecstasy. His taciturn companion is harder to crack, but Claudia has met her fair share of werewolves and giving herself to Lucan awakens desires she has too long suppressed.

Justice is soon the furthest thing from Claudia’s mind, but colluding with outsiders can have unforeseen ramifications. It’s not long before running Silver and Lucan out of town seems like the only sensible option. Time for Claudia to decide what she values more: her hard-won reputation or the two men in her bed?

Steal Your Soul Away by Elizabeth Coldwell

In Brighton, the undead come alive when the sun goes down. Can a vampire and a werewolf put their differences aside and enjoy the ultimate threesome?

Angelique is not like other burlesque dancers. For one thing, she’s been a vampire for over two hundred years. Her rule has always been ‘look but don’t touch’, until she meets hot, young sculptor Tom. But she’s also attracted to his friend, Lucas, even though she knows him to be a lycan–the last creature she’d ever want to get involved with. Desire and distrust mix in an explosive combination as Angelique is drawn closer to both Tom and Lucas.

Tom Lawless is a star on the rise about to exhibit his sculptures at Cities after Dark show at Brighton Pavilion. When he sees beautiful dancer Angelique, it’s lust at first sight and his need for her doesn’t fade, even when he learns she’s one of the undead. If only he could make her realize his best friend, Lucas, is a cool guy and not a threat, their twosome could become a very happy threesome.

Lucas Canning has secrets he doesn’t feel comfortable sharing. Just how do you tell your closest friend that you sometimes need to shift into wolf form? And now that friend is dating a gorgeous woman vamp. Lucas is crazy about Angelique but can’t get involved with her without hurting Tom. Perhaps the night of the exhibition will give him a chance to show her he’s not the bad guy in all this and finally give his animal passion free rein. Because everything gets a little wild when the sun goes down…

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of voyerism.

Taken in by Wendi Zwaduk

Find what you need at the Store Front. Blood, sex…we have it all just for you.

The Supernaturals have taken over the earth, leaving the humans to serve them. The Store Front is one place for the Supernaturals to find partners for feeding and sexual needs. Vic, a wolf shifter, and Gale, a vampire, have a special human female they love to visit. They know the bond between them goes far beyond the bedroom, but convincing Kitty the triad should happen might not be so easy.

Kitty longs to leave the Store Front and the total darkness of the earth. The one bright spot in her day is the visit from Gale and Vic. She loves the two Supernatural men, even if she can’t voice the words. Do they return her affections on a deeper level or is she just a pawn to them? She’s not sure, but she’s willing to risk her heart and get wild after dark in order to find out.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of anal sex.

Intervention by Aurelia T. Evans

It starts as an intervention for a friend. It ends in bloodshed, lust, betrayal and death, as love often does after dark.
When Emily’s husband, Land, calls her to come down to the warehouse district at sunset, she thinks it’s just another job for their para-extermination company. However, he tells her that he’s finally caught Matt, the third member of their team, who was bitten by a werewolf a few weeks ago.

Emily races to the warehouse. She and Land reassure Matt that they’ll give him all the help he needs and that he doesn’t need to run away. After all, they’re not strangers to the supernatural.

What she finds, however, is Matt wild in his cage, a creepy vampire duct-taped to a pipe, Land covered in blood from a bite mark on his neck—and no easy answers. Will their love vanquish all?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of horror, gore and death.

Darker Nights by Nan Comargue

Lawyer Delia Darker’s world becomes very dark when two new clients turn out to be immortal vampires – and her long-time fantasy.

Delia Darker works at her family’s law firm serving vampires and other immortals, but she has long ago gotten over her own lust for vampire males after being hurt and abandoned by one. When her colleague forces her to take over a meeting with two of his clients, she’s suddenly thrown into the nighttime world of music, partying and incredible sex. How can she resist spending the night with Mark Lyons and Caleb Jennings?

Caleb has been searching for him and Mark’s one true mate, the ideal match prophesized for vampires. However, Mark is skeptical. Immortality just doesn’t seem to go with a committed long-term relationship. It doesn’t matter how attractive Delia is, he just doesn’t think it’s going to work—but he’s willing to give it a try for his best friend’s sake.

When that first wild night turns into a series of sexy encounters, Delia starts worrying that she might be falling for Mark and Caleb—and that certainly isn’t the plan. She isn’t sure she wants to become a vampire. Sleeping with two men might be a crazy experiment that’s all right for a little while, but the two males couldn’t want more than that, could they?

WildAfterDark_Anthology_socialmedia_612_Review_0001_finalSated by Lucy Felthouse

A human, a vampire and a werewolf walked into a bar. Sexy is what happens next.

Since getting together with her vampire boyfriend, Ace, Aneesa is enjoying a sex life she could never have with a human. Ace has skill, strength, stamina…and is massively adventurous. Aneesa is checking things off her sexual bucket list at a rate of knots. However, she hasn’t even come close to experiencing the ultimate item on her list. So when Ace beats her to it, proposing a threesome with his werewolf friend, Barton, Aneesa’s definitely up for it.

Barton is attractive, smart and sexy—almost too good to be true, in fact. Aneesa decides not to jump straight into things, but makes sure it’s what she truly wants. However, it turns out Barton’s not so easily dissuaded.

Will Aneesa get the ultimate erotic experience she’s desired for so long? Will she be truly sated, or is the plan doomed to failure?

SERENA AKEROYD: Love and Let Die! Mona is now on sale!

MONA 2

The Naughty Nookie series began with an earnest desire to understand how a ménage relationship could begin.

I’m a fan of realism in my books, and while many might say that a ménage relationship is a fantasy, I don’t think that’s the truth. I think as we become ever more liberated within the tight confines of our society, these little forays do happen, and MONA explores one of the reasons this might occur.

Adultery is a hard limit for a lot of folk, and I’m one of them! But at the same time, isn’t it an everyday occurrence? Sadly enough, adultery is very much a part of life. This vein might be painful for some, but I think it should be dealt with in books. How many readers have to deal with it in real life? Reading is escapism, but at the same time, reality has to be threaded into a tale.

Mona, Zane, and Jake don’t have the best of starts, but that doesn’t mean to say they can’t earn a HEA of their own. Even if it’s unorthodox, does it really matter so long as love is the binding factor keeping them together?

Fingers crossed, if you take a chance, then you’ll dive into this series and love it too.

Thanks for reading! :)

☜(˚▽˚)☞

Simone Barranquet is in a rut. In fact, her life is one huge rut. Until she falls into the arms of Zane Matthews (The Zane Matthews!) and unwittingly finds herself.
But even then, life can’t hand Mona a candy bar. There’s always something bittersweet to spoil her happiness and in this instance, it’s Zane’s husband.
Yeah. Husband!
Can Mona wade through the fallout to find her own Happy Ever After? Or is she destined to lead a Zane-free and love-free life?
If she can grab the bull by the balls, then maybe, just maybe she can.
But does she have enough cojones of her own to do just that?

Top 5 CowGIRLS

Yes, you read that correctly! COWGIRLS! Here are the top 5 cowgirls in history:

1. Annie Oakley — sharpshooter and exhibition shooter starred in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show

2. Belle Star (the Bandit Queen) — rustling, horse stealing, and bootlegging whiskey

3. Connie Douglas Reeves — taught thousands of girls to ride

4. Lucille Mulhall — one of first to compete in rope and ride against men

5. Ruth Roach — professional bronco rider and world champion rodeo performer

I applaud these ladies who paved a way for women. I mean, bootlegging whiskey takes talent, folks!

Read on for an excerpt from my brand new Boot Knockers Ranch series, starring a little cowgirl who knows her stuff too.

RopinHearts

description:

It’ll take more than ropes and whips for this cowboy to keep his bratty woman in line.

The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 4

At twenty-three, Bree Roberts is ready to sow some wild oats. The perfect place to start? The neighboring spread—The Boot Knockers Ranch, where twenty smokin’ hot cowboys deliver sexual therapy to women. The problem? The entry fee is more than she’s made in a lifetime.

Only wanting to explore, she figures her tanned, toned legs will be her ticket to ride. Except Ty keeps kicking her off their land. Then she begins to suspect the reason why. He likes her.

If Ty spots that little vixen wrapped around one of his cowboys one more time, he’s going to throw her over his knee. Trouble is, she’d like it. Catching her participating in the ranch’s notorious, semi-clad Cornhole tournament is one thing, but when he finds her under their resident Dom’s whip, enough is enough.

Ty won’t throw a naked woman out of his bed, namely one who deserves a spanking, but showing Bree the rewards of sex mixed with a little emotion leads to trails neither of them intended to tread.

Warning: Contains a spitfire cowgirl who excels at breaking the rules, and a cowboy who lays down the law—and a firm hand on her ass cheek.

EXCERPT:

The gorgeous man had enough swagger to knock the air from her. She watched his muscles rolling, arms swinging loose, denim pulling tight over his thighs. Six-pack, hell. Ty looked as if he had twice that.

He let his gaze travel over her body, making her quiver with excitement. He was one of the baby-faced guys, but he was hot as hell. Besides, if he sprouted a five o’clock shadow, he’d look rough and dangerous enough to suit her.

She shifted her hips, giving him the best view of her toned thigh muscle. What was she doing? She should run for it.

Daddy always said I did tempt fate. We’ll see if these two men make me the filling of a Boot Knocker sandwich.

Judging by the looks on Ty’s and Elliot’s faces, she was in a double-good position to get her dreams fulfilled.

“S’up, Elliot?” Ty’s gaze didn’t leave her. In fact, it sank to her breasts then up to her face.

“Your gal here is in to trick riding, and I feel the sudden need to learn. You up for sharing her?”

Bree’s heart rate spiked. Her panties flooded.

“My gal…” Ty drawled the words, and her stomach hatched a thousand butterflies.

Run for it.

No, wait it out. If I can get two for the price of one pair of short-shorts…

Ty’s eyes narrowed, and his long brows punctuated his suspicion. He swaggered near and snaked an arm around her middle. When he hauled her against his rock-hard body, she felt the tension running off him.

No escape. Shoulda run.

“Not with this one, Elliot. She’s all talk in bed.”

She sucked in a gasp. Confusion crossed Elliot’s rugged features.

Ty delivered a pinch to her backside that made her yip. “For all her shorty-shorts, she’s a cold fish. But I’ll meet you in the bunkhouse at nightfall if you want to play.”

With that, Ty started dragging her away. She dug in her bootheels.

“If you don’t walk away with me normal, I’ll pick you up and throw you over my shoulder, Miss Roberts.”

Ice filled her veins. He knew her. How? Was there a wanted poster on the wall somewhere? This man saw dozens of women a week—surely he wouldn’t remember her face after visiting her ranch.

“Let go of me!”

“I don’t think so, sugar tits. You’re trespassing. Wonder what Daddy would think of you down here getting corrupted.”

“Sugar tits! Did you really just call me that?”

He placed his mouth close to her ear, heating it with his words. “Don’t you want to be objectified, sweetheart? Isn’t that why you’re here?”

“No.” She aimed a kick at his shin, but he moved his leg at the same moment. “Where are you taking me?”

Her pulse thrummed. For the first time since rolling under that fence, fear took hold. Not because Ty would likely hand her back to her father and she’d be in for the lecture of her life, but because she might not get another chance with a Boot Knocker.

No, I’ll get a chance.

This time her bootheel glanced off Ty’s shin. He didn’t even flinch, just kept walking.

“What do you have—iron shins?”

He eyed her. “I’ve got iron everything, sweetheart. Now I’m going to put you into my truck and take you home.” With him being shirtless, she was well aware of how hard he was.

“How do you know I didn’t pay to be here?”

He glared at her. Up close his eyes were green, glowing like sea glass. She shut her jaw with such force her teeth grazed her tongue. Biting off a curse, she let him drag her another ten feet before really digging in.

She tore away and set her hands on her hips. “I can go on my own.”

“I’d prefer to escort you.” He didn’t look fazed by her anger. She felt it simmering just below her skin, about to boil over if he tried to manhandle her again.

She waved a hand as if he were an annoying fly. “Go on back to your Cornhole.”

He ran a hand over his chest and abs. She stopped breathing. The sight of long fingers over ridges of manscaped flesh rendered her panties a soggy scrap.

Sure, Ty had one of those crooked cowboy smiles.

Too bad he was an insufferable jerk.

After his treatment of her, she wouldn’t have sex with Ty if he were the last Boot Knocker on earth.

Storms tweak creativity!

Spring is here. With the warm weather comes storms. I used to hide under the covers when a storm brewed, but over the last few years I’ve embraced the thunder, flashes of lightening, the torrential downpours, and the heavy winds. However, I don’t like the damages caused by bad weather. Last night we had a severe thunderstorm sweep through our area. It came through fast and furious, shaking the house and sending tree branches to the ground. The rain came down at a side angle and the animals scurried for cover. And what were we doing? Cooking dinner. The hubby was outside grilling and I was in the kitchen making sides. It took twice as long considering the electric flashed on and off a dozen times. Oh, and the kids were playing Monopoly. We have a basement and at any moment we could have slipped downstairs, but living where we do, we’ve gotten used to Mother Nature’s mood changes. This morning, everything is a bright green, flowers are blooming and a fresh rain scent lingers in the air. The sun is filtering through the clouds. Nothing is more motivating for me, which is perfect because I’m starting book 4 of Rhinestone Cowgirls, Secret Pressure. The relationship between Ruby and Jobe are as wild and crazy as last night’s storm…just as the rest of the Stone women and their cowboys.

Below is a picture from my office window. Isn’t it beautiful?

Out Now – Native Tongue – M/M Erotic Romance by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #erotica #romance #military #interracial

nativetongueBlurb:

They may be back on British soil, but the battle isn’t over.

When Captain Hugh Wilkes fell for his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, he always knew things would never be easy. After months of complete secrecy, their return to England should have spelt an end to the sneaking around and the insane risks. But it seems there are many obstacles for them to overcome before they can truly be happy together. Can they get past those obstacles, or is this one battle too many for their fledgling relationship?

Author’s note: Although this story does work as a standalone tale, it’s recommended that you read the first instalment of the characters’ journey first—Desert Heat, which is available from all good retailers.

*****

Excerpt:

Captain Hugh Wilkes drummed enthusiastically on the steering wheel of his car as he drove it up the M3 towards London. He sung loudly and tunelessly along to the song on the radio, too, but it didn’t matter. No one could hear him.

He’d surprised himself by being so chilled out about the volume of Friday evening traffic. He wasn’t the most patient of people, so the slow progress should probably have been increasing his blood pressure, if not leading to full on road rage. But, although he’d have loved to be actually achieving the speed limit, not bumbling along at a mere fifty miles per hour, Wilkes was just glad the traffic was moving at all. Britain’s roads, the motorways in particular, soon came to a standstill if there was so much as a tiny bump between two vehicles. So any progress was better than none.

Besides, what could he do about it? His only other options to get to London from his base in Wiltshire were a train, or stealing a plane, helicopter or tank. The latter might just cause a little bit of bother, and mean the end of his army career, not to mention criminal charges. The former meant cramming in amongst sweaty, disgruntled commuters. If that wasn’t bad enough, he’d be charged an extortionate amount to do so, probably wouldn’t even get a seat, and would likely be subjected to delays.

At least driving took him from door to door, with plenty of personal space. And if there were delays, well, he could sit them out from the comfort of his own vehicle, with the climate control set to the perfect temperature, and the radio blasting some of his favourite tunes.

The next song was even better, and Wilkes’ tuneless wailing became more enthusiastic, as did the drumming on the steering wheel. He was in one hell of a good mood, and if he was truthful with himself, he knew it wasn’t just the fact the M3 was moving at a nice pace. It wasn’t the Friday feeling, either. Sure, both of those things were contributing to his happiness, but the main reason he was grinning like a buffoon was the thought of what awaited him in the capital. Or rather, who.

Rustam Balkhi. His gorgeous Afghan boyfriend, whom he’d met out in Afghanistan while they were working together for the British Army. Now, with their tour of duty over and the forces’ presence pulled out of the country, the two men had returned to England. Wilkes had gone back to his regular army life in Bulford Camp, near Salisbury. Balkhi was in London, where he’d recommenced the medical training he’d postponed to become an interpreter for the Brits.

The past few weeks had been somewhat of a whirlwind. Wilkes’ return to the UK had been straightforward, but Balkhi had had to jump through some hoops in order to get back onto his medical course. He’d been willing to start from scratch, but it’d seemed like an awful waste of time, so Wilkes had spoken to his superiors, who’d explained to the university what important work Balkhi had been doing. Fortunately, they’d been persuaded of Balkhi’s commitment and character, and allowed him to pick up where he’d left off. That settled, Balkhi had to pack up, travel back to the UK, find somewhere to live, move in… and all before the start of the next academic term.

Wilkes had felt terrible. His return had taken place a few weeks before Balkhi’s, so although he’d been granted some leave for R&R, he hadn’t been able to either spend it with Balkhi, or to use it help him with his relocation. By the time Balkhi had set foot on British soil, Wilkes was back to work. And, given nobody knew about the two of them, or even that Wilkes was gay, he couldn’t exactly ask for more leave in order to help his boyfriend move into his new flat.

Life had conspired against them ever since, so this was the first opportunity they’d had to see each other since saying goodbye in Afghanistan all those weeks ago. They’d communicated via email, text message and phone calls, but it just wasn’t the same. Especially since they’d gone from seeing each other every single day for the best part of six months to not setting eyes on each other for weeks on end.

Wilkes had struggled terribly in the interim. Life had been tough enough while they were still out in the desert. After weeks and weeks of trying desperately to ignore their growing attraction, they’d finally given in to it. It had been stupid and risky, but, having quickly realised there was more to their attraction than the physical, they’d decided to carry on their relationship in secret while they were in Afghanistan, see how it went, and figure things out once Wilkes’ tour of duty was over. Balkhi had always intended to return to the UK for his studies, so they would, at least, be living in the same country.

Spring has Finally Hit New England!

Spring is in the air! The weather has warmed up at last, the days bright and sunny, the nights cool enough to snuggle up together under the blankets.

It’s also the time of year, every year, when I tell myself I’m going to clean out my closets, drawers, etc. It pretty much lasts until I actually start to do it, and it almost immediately becomes overwhelming. By the end of the year, I’ve inevitably accumulated more crap than I’ve been able to throw away.

This year is going to be different. Seriously. I’m going to plow through it all and come out on top. Less paper, less crap, more organization of the stuff that’s not crap.

There are two very important reasons for this organization to happen. When my dad died and my mom became incapacitated, I was left to sift through years and years of paperwork, family info, and pictures of people who may at this point end up unidentified. They were major packrats. I don’t want to do that to my kids, and I want our grandkids, their kids, and their grandkids to know a bit about their history.

But before I hit that personal stuff, I want to organize my writing life. This includes handouts, papers (we’re talking napkins, ripped out sheets, whatever was available when my Muse paid a visit), and three (or is it four?) complete stories that have cohabited with dust bunnies for well over a decade. I’ve narrowed it down, and I’m convinced my Muse is being held hostage by those dust bunnies. It wouldn’t be hard for that to happen if they combined forces and ate the printed pages.

IMG_0171

Wish me luck. I’ve already begun, and I’m not overwhelmed yet. Pretty sure I hear snorting laughter coming from under the bed at night, though.

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms other there and to dads pulling double duty. I still remember making my mom breakfast in bed and I have to commend her for eating our creations. :-) Some of it was burnt or just plain inedible, but the tray always came back empty.

Now that I’m a mom I cherish those special moments. I hope my boys give me a call this year or even a Skype call so I can see their smiling faces, since I won’t get to see them in person.

Wherever you are tell your mom you love her. Make her special day count and if your mom is no longer here, say a prayer for her.

Love you Mom. :-)

A businessman first, and a trained Dominant second, Killian never gets tied down to one submissive. He’s a lover with commitment issues, but he doesn’t hesitate to help fulfill Doug and Alana’s fantasies. Once the fantasy is set in motion, the three players must decide if watching sin is enough…

Wrapped in a cocoon of snow, Lacy finds the ranch to be a hidden treasure trove of cowboy eye candy, and her mouth is watering even as her brain is telling her to run.

After a devastating tragedy, a young Drannon Russo ended up fostering with the Crawley family, and found a home. He’s only moved away once and had to lean on family for support when his dreams were shattered. Being a cowboy on a ranch is a pretty lonely existence. When a beautiful redhead shows up looking for a fresh start he’s determined to give them both what they want.

Will this vacation into the heart of cattle country turn out to be a mistake, or will Lacy and Drannon find their future in each other?

Garden Season!

My yard from a past year

My yard from a past year

I’ll shock you.  To me, the most delicious food in the world is not chocolate.  Not caviar.  Not lobster.  All those are wonderful, but the most delicious food in the world is the homegrown tomato.  A really good farmer’s market tomato ranks right up there, too.  I’m not talking about the pink plastic orbs they sell at the supermarket.  They’re bred to withstand the rigors of mechanical picking and are plucked from the vine while still green.  They’re utterly worthless, and you won’t find one in my cart.  The cherry tomatoes are edible but nothing compared to the ones you pick in your back yard.  (Actually, I stopped growing cherry tomatoes because none of them ever made it into the house.  I’d stand at the plant and eat them.)

You may have gathered I’m incredibly opinionated about tomatoes and a lot of other produce.

tomatoSo, I’m watching my plants closely enough to make the poor darlings paranoid.  They’re in bloom, and I’ll probably bet my first fruit around the Fourth of July.  Then, my favorite food time of the year will begin—the months I harvest tomatoes, squashes, peppers, and basil from my garden.

Because I live in the fog from San Francisco bay, I grow Early Girl tomatoes.  They don’t get very big, but they have astonishing flavor.  I’m incredibly jealous of anyone who can grow Brandywines, and I’d love to try something called Mortgage Lifter, but my Early Girls make me happy.

I also love my zucchinis.  This year, I’ll have five regular green plants and three Golden Eggs.  All that for one person?  I love zucchini.

(A note about water.  I’m sure you’re all aware that we’re in the middle of a horrible multi-year drought in California.  I grow all my produce in Earthboxes, which have a water reservoir at the bottom.  After the initial set-up, very little watering is required.)

I’ll tell you how I cook it below, but let me also make some suggestions for handling all that bounty.  Someone has declared August 8 National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day, although I suspect you’ll be most successful if you do it at night.  Any zucchini I can’t eat all by myself, I take to my church to share.  We have a food pantry two Sundays a month, and it can always use good produce.  You don’t have to belong to a church to do this.  You can simply take your squashes to your local food bank.

So, to cook zucchini.  The easiest way is to grate it, either with the grating attachment in your food processor or the large holes on a box grater.  If you want, put in a strainer, salt it, and let it stand to draw out the moisture.  Then squeeze it by the fistful to get out the rest.  I don’t bother with this, but if you do, don’t add salt while cooking.  Then heat some butter in a non-stick pan and cook the zucchini in that until it’s done.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add a few tablespoons of freshly grated parmigiano or romano.

Or slice lengthwise, fairly thick.  Salt on both sides and let stand on paper towels to draw out moisture.  Press between more paper towels to dry.  Heat a heavy skillet (I love cast iron) until hot but not insane.  Add butter and heat.  Add zucchini and cook until browned on one side.  Turn and cook on the other side.

Or you can do the slicing, salting, etc. and then coat in flour, beaten egg, and then panko bread crumbs.  Heat a half inch of oil in skillet until a bread crumb sizzles when you drop it in the pan.  Add zucchini and cook until browned.  Turn and continue cooking.  Don’t over crowd the pan but cook in batches, if necessary.

Breathless in Love

I’ve got the most amazing announcement to make! Writing as Jennifer Skully, I’ve teamed up with my good friend Bella Andre to bring you an exciting and emotional new contemporary romance series. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed working on this series with Bella. Bella and I grew up together (as writers, that is) in our local San Francisco RWA chapter. I’ve loved every single one of her books. And now it’s the greatest pleasure to be writing with her. We spent hours and hours brainstorming the characters and stories, and I have to say we both fell in love with these gorgeous men. And for each of them, we found the perfect woman they never saw coming. Keep in mind, these stories are contemporary romance, sexy but not erotic. Just great stories!

And enjoy these fabulous covers! The first three books with be Will, Sebastian, then Matt.

Meet the Maverick Billionaires. Will, Sebastian, Matt, Evan, and Daniel. Sexy, gorgeous, self-made men from the wrong side of town. They survived hell together, and now they’re taking on the world.

Breathless in Love, Book 1

Coming June 10, 2015

Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.

Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

And we’ve got so much more to come! Look for Sebastian to be enchanted by the beautiful but independent Charlie in Reckless in Love, coming Oct 14, 2015. Then Matt will be captivated by his motherless son’s pretty, young nanny Arianna in Fearless in Love, coming March 16, 2016.
