BROSLIN BRIDE by Dana Marton

Luanne Mayfair might have killed her boss a little. Or a lot. Okay, pretty much all the way. Or did she? Earl Cosgrove sure is dead. Unfortunately, Luanne doesn’t remember the night in question.

All she knows is that the detective on the case is Chase Merritt, her old high school boyfriend about whom she might have spread the rumor that he was bad in bed. Okay, she did. She definitely did that.

Dear Lord, please let the man not hold grudges…

Bring Me Back by Micalea Smeltzer

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
I could have put the typical blurb here.
Boy meets girl.
They fall in love.
Live happily ever after.
The end.
But this isn’t THAT story.

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.

You’ve Got Male by Monica Smith

Anita has had two failed marriages. Her first, to Ted, ended because they were too young. Her second, to Damon, ended because he left her…for a man named Paul.

After the pain of the divorces, she’s joined HookUsUp.com, hoping for one last chance at love through online dating. But so far, it’s been a fiasco. Then she meets Mitch on the site. He seems kind, handsome, decent – too good to be true? But as her hope surfaces with Mitch, both former husbands come back to turn her life upside down. Ted wants to re-connect but is easy to say “no” to. More dangerous is Damon, who wants another chance even though he’s still committed to Paul.

It’s a juggling act of men – good and bad – as Anita tries to sort out her life and what she really wants. How important is great sex, if no love is involved? Against the advice of mom Cassie and friend Mandy, Anita re-kindles her sex life with bi-sexual Damon and even tries a threesome with jealous Paul. She hates herself for it but is drawn to the steamy, wildly inappropriate encounters. Things soon spiral downhill, when a tantalizing abundance of sexy men turns to deceit, distrust and violence. Mitch, willing to give Anita all his love, finds out about the other sex partners she has and breaks off their relationship. Paul commits a violent act because Damon says he still loves Anita.

When Anita all but despairs of ever finding a forever soul mate, she and Mitch try one more time and she realizes that in spite of recent dark times, love – not just lust – is possible.

Targeted Audience: Erotica

Author Bio:
Monica L. Smith lives a vast contrast in lifestyles. She has been working in the medical field since 1997, first as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then in 2005 as a Medication Aide and, since 2013, as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She was born in Louisville, Kentucky, where she received her diploma. She then moved to Maricopa, Arizona, with her husband and 3 out of 9 children.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys old-school television shows such as “Perry Mason”, “Matlock”, “Forensic Files”, and more currently, “The First 48.” Her creative side began to emerge when she tried her hand at writing. She published A Softer Side of Me, a book of 10 poems focusing on her “normal” but inspirational life, including her husband, children and career. It spent time as #1 in the poetry genre on Amazon.

But much like her character, there’s another side to Monica L. Smith, who has realized that she has a passion for urban erotic fiction. She enjoys writing what she calls “no-no” sensual sex scenes and while she does explore the dark side, she also firmly believes in writing about finding love, and hopes to inspire women to find their balance between sexuality and true love.

She claims she may not actually do what she writes about, but she feels a connection to it and enjoys the thrill that drives her to see her stories through to their exciting climax and conclusion.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always been told that I write excellent short erotic stories. So I thought, why not put my talents to good use and write a book that is entertaining and fulfilling.

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.

After traveling across the United States, from coast to coast, four times, she finally settled in her native Upstate New York.

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.

Preying Game by Rebecca York

Jonah Ranger was restoring an antique 1955 Chevy when he heard a woman’s voice on the car radio pleading for help. She said her name was Alice Davenport, and a man was holding her captive, forcing her into a grueling workout routine so she’d be a proper challenge when he hunted her like big game on his private estate.

As they talked, her voice shifted from the radio to inside Jonah’s head. Born with telepathic abilities, he’d helped Decorah Security rescue kidnap victims, but never had he felt this personal connection to one of them. Calling on psychic resources he didn’t know he possessed, Jonah was able to project himself to Alice’s location, where he could hold her in his arms, touch her, kiss her, and plan.

Targeted Audience: 21-61

Ever since she can remember, Rebecca York has loved making up stories full of adventure, romance, and suspense. As a child she corralled her friends into adventure games or acted out romantic suspense stories with a cast of dolls. But she never assumed she could be an author because she couldn’t spell. Her life changed dramatically with the invention of the word processor and spelling checker–and the help of her husband, Norman Glick, who spots spelling errors from fifty paces away.

In 2011 she became the dozenth author to receive the Romance Writers of America Centennial Award for having written 100 romantic novels.

Her many awards include two Rita finalist books. She has two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times: for Series Romantic Suspense and for Series Romantic Mystery. And her Peregrine Connection series won a Lifetime Achievement Award for Romantic Suspense Series.

Nowhere Man was the Romantic Times Best Intrigue of 1998, and the book has been selected as one of their Reviewers’ “all-time favorite 400 romances.” In addition, she received the 1998 Affaire de Coeur Critics Choice Award for Best Contemporary Novel, also for Nowhere Man. Rebecca’s book, Amanda’s Child, won the 2001 New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Award for Long Contemporary and was nominated for Best Intrigue of 2000 by Romantic Times. The Secret Night and More Than a Man both won RT’s award for Best Harlequin Intrigue of the Year for 2006 and 2009, respectively.

She collects rocks and has been known to lug stones back from Hawaii, Ireland, and Alaska. Rebecca and her husband Norman travel frequently to research settings for novels and taste new dishes for cookbooks. Trips in recent years included Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, London, New Orleans, and Maui. Her many unique experiences are apt to end up in her books–like the time she encountered a coral snake in the Guatemalan jungle or took a flight in a hot air balloon.

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.

No Honor Between Brothers by Deborah Tadema

Everyone has at least one weakness. Mitch Wilder’s is women. He has always been fussed over, coddled and protected by them. As a teenager he was the star football quarterback, always surrounded by girls, as he used his good looks and popularity to his advantage. By thirty-nine years of age, he hasn’t slowed down. Mitch still sneaks from bedroom to bedroom.

When his father dies in 1967 Mitch’s world starts to fray at the seams. His father’s will states that Mitch has inherited the shipping company, which Mitch has been running for eight years, ever since his father retired. But up until then the company had remained in his father’s name. While the inheritance isn’t a surprise, the stipulation that Mitch must hire his stepbrother, Tom Fleming, is. On top of this, Tom will own half the company within five years. If this doesn’t happen the company will be sold and the proceeds will go to charity. Mitch sees no choice but to hire his brother.

Other than the fact that Mitch hates Tom, he has also discovered that Tom had an affair with the woman Mitch loves, Claire Lester. He comes up with a plan: to convince Claire to marry him and keep her away from Tom.
