Bring Me Back by Micalea Smeltzer

Targeted Audience: Adult romance readers

Author Bio:
Hi. I’m Micalea. Ma-call-e-uh. Weird name, I know. My mom must’ve known I was going to be odd even in the womb. I’ve written a lot of books. Like a lot. Don’t ask me how many, I don’t remember at this point. I have an unhealthy addiction to Diet Coke but I can’t seem to break the habit. I listen to way too much music and hedgehogs have taken over my life. Crazy is the word that best sums up my life, but it’s the good kind of crazy and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

V.I.P by Tia Panipinto

Wren: Just a woman living life. She’s the best photographer at The Miami Beat, a music magazine that covers all the hottest bands.

Reaper: Smoking hot, bass playing, bad boy, for “9th Circle”, Miami’s hottest up-and-coming rock band.

When they meet, there’s mind numbing heat, great sex, and broken hearts.

Now, Wren, along with her best friend, Abby, have rules for dealing with the hot boys backstage. They never get attached. They never screw the same one more than once, and they never, ever, take them home.

Since her first encounter with Reaper, Wren has held tight to the rules, and looks at love and relationships through jaded eyes and a guarded heart. Two years later, Wren is on top of the world. That is, until she’s put on assignment covering “9th Circle” for their first big, headlining show. Wren never wants to fall in love again. Thankfully, what she has with Reaper isn’t love… at least…that’s what she keeps telling herself. Sometimes, there are just certain feelings you can’t ignore. No matter how much you want to. He was a mistake, but now, he may just be exactly what she needs.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Tia Panipinto is an artist, freelance photographer, and freelance writer. After traveling across the United States, from coast to coast, four times, she finally settled in her native Upstate New York. (Not the Statue of Liberty side of New York– the rolling hills and farmland side.) Her books range from steamy red-hot romance, to edge-of-your-seat supernatural suspense. As an Indie Author, she’s self-published one title, so far, that is available on Amazon and has been met with rave reviews. Going the self-publishing route has created its expected obstacles, but it allows her to enjoy directly interacting with readers.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My time as a freelance photographer for indie bands that performed at venues in New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C and Florida inspired the general idea for this book. The musicians, fans, club promoters and bouncers all had inspiration that went into the creation of this novel.

Author Bio:
Pippa Prince hails from the middle midwest where she divides her time between chasing her young children, writing sexy romance, and watching classic movies.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in a small town, attended church, heard the stories in Sunday School. Pretty standard midwestern US youth. The story of the prodigal son always interested me — he took his inheritance and squandered it, abominably. When he returned home, utterly penniless, his father welcomed him with open arms and a party. The important part wasn't the money — the important part was family. Of course, in PRODIGAL, 'family' means the hero and heroine, but the moral is the same.

Seductive Synchronicity by Sage Ardman

For ten years, Constance Westerley has been having a recurring dream about a mouth-wateringly handsome man with a dragon tattoo on his chest. Some of her dreams are quite erotic.

Her girlfriends, a group of spiritual adventurers who call themselves The Witchy Women, tell her to meditate on this and find him. Of course, her outrageously wealthy family doesn’t know about her dreams and they certainly don’t care for her spiritual leanings. They just want her to find a respectable, rich man and settle down.

Nick Veseli grew up on the streets and in foster homes but was lucky enough to be adopted by loving parents. Since then, he has made it his life goal to give back to the community that saved him as a child. But his crusading idealism will pit him and Constance against powerful corporate interests, including some very rich Westerleys.

Wait until they see the dragon tattoo on his chest.

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
The "Westerley" books were my first romance series, and they came at me faster than I could write them down. Much more fun than the technical books I had written in my youth.

Now I’m working on my "Fame" series, stories about Rock and Roll. Interestingly, I was once the lead singer of a California garage band back in the 1990s, so I had a taste of rock and roll fame. Nothing like what my characters go through, of course, but it was fun to pretend.

I’ve always liked a good story, but I never knew about romance novels until I was 59 years old, and in the middle of writing one. I quickly fell in love with it, and now I fill my time reading and writing romance stories.

Also, I never drank whiskey before. But since I wrote characters who drink it, I became curious. Now it’s my favorite drink.

Life in Northern California is full of surprises, including these romance novels. I have been happily married for thirty years, and we have raised two wonderful children. I honestly wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, living or dead, real or imagined.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to buck the standard trend where a rich woman is unable to find happiness with a poor man.

Desire for Touch by Adira August

Has it ever been like this for you? Hands and heat and need become the world? … Have you ever been loved like this?

Avienne Rivers hadn’t. The investigative reporter focused on work, family and friends. If she needed a man, well, that was easy enough. There were always willing men. For a night or a week.

Now, Avia was on her way to interview a sex-toy manufacturer. What was she supposed to write about? The benefits of a pink sparkle dildo?

But Benedict Hart turned out to be a charming, funny, accomplished man who made Avia warm in a cool mountain breeze with a dimpled smile, a direct gaze and an aura of passion for life. And, he made clear, for her.

But this Alpha female wasn’t about to turn into a compliant mass of quivering nerve-endings at the crook of an elegant finger. Still. That finger was attached to a strong, warm hand and a beautiful man. And there was definite quiverage going on in certain parts of her body.

Besides, you just flashed on him throwing you down here in broad daylight on his terrace. He seems like a good guy and he wants to give you great sex. It’s not Of Human Bondage, it’s just experimenting with something different. And it’ll provide depth to the story.

And then Ben touched her. And she was lost.

ROMANCE WITHOUT SEX IS LIKE DISNEYLAND WITHOUT RIDES.

I don't write smut, I write Romance. I write about people passionate for life, for work, for each other. And that makes the sex electric and intimate, classic erotica. Unashamed and unapologetic.

I've chased down bad guys, climbed mountains, searched for dinosaurs and had rather a large number of lovers, though I'm not giving a specific number.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My whole foray into erotic Romance came about when I discovered that 97 out of every 100 women didn’t know what their own clitoris looks like. Most doctors don’t, either. True! Hardly any men do. It a beautiful thing that spreads its wings inside us and caresses our vaginas.

I got tired of books about things sensual or sexual being called “dirty” or “smut.” Some are, I guess, but I love my characters. I want women, and men, to love and embrace and find joy in sex.I want them to feel okay about the things they want, the fantasies they have. Lotsa fun sex! Hey, it’s great for your health!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am a former military member and have seen the effects PTSD can have on those who have been to war, and how it affects every aspect of their lives.
I decided to write a series that focuses on three ex-marines who feel lost and broken after leaving the services, and the women who help them heal and find peace. The books deal with some pretty heavy issues that many veterans struggle with, including mental health issues, alcoholism and self-medication, and difficulties transitioning into civilian life.
I've also pledged to donate a portion of every sale from each book in the series to a charity dedicated to helping veterans in crisis.

The story came to me in a dream. It played out like a movie as a slept. When I woke up, I raced to write it down! I was inspired by the actual manned missions to Mars that are in the works. This could happen in the very near future! I wondered what it would be like if someone you love had a one-way ticket to another planet.

Rock Con Roll by Sage Ardman

Why was I playing con games again? I’d stopped doing that years ago and lived an honest life in New York City. Now suddenly I was swindling Alejandro, the sexy rocker who had topped charts for a decade. I was a huge fan, in love with his music and his seductive smile. How could I take his money?

Unfortunately, I couldn’t escape my past. I’d grown up on the streets, picking pockets, conning people, and forging art. Thanks to my foster mother and her grifter friends, I knew all the rules of the con, and I’d gotten good at it.

But I fell for an old trick, and the only way out was to scam Alejandro. I could con a crook easily enough, but cheating my favorite rock god was an entirely different story. In the end, nearly every con rule got broken, especially one of the most important ones: Never fall for the mark.
