New Release: Hot Pursuit by Julie Ann Walker

So many questions buzzed through Emily’s brain that she felt like she’d shoved her head in a beehive. She had to grit her teeth to keep from asking them. And why the hell wouldn’t he stop rubbing her hip? Warmth had spread from the skin beneath his hand, and now her whole body was suffused with it. “Is she the reason you stayed in England after Boss invited you to join him at Black Knights Inc.?” she asked. The look he shot her had her lifting a brow. “What?” “That’s the second time today I’ve thought you were either a mind reader or else practicing witchcraft.” “Really?” The thought delighted her. “When was the first time?” Then reality sank in. Shit, that was question number three. “Never mind!” She slapped a hand over his mouth. “Don’t answer that.” His eyes sparkled mischievously. He’d tried using her own technique against her, piquing her interest so she’d use up her truths. “I’m not the only one who fights dirty,” she accused. “And don’t you forget it,” he par

New Release: One Summer Night by Caridad Pineiro

Nothing about the night had gone quite the way Maggie had pictured it. Not Connie and Jonathan. Or how all of them had gotten along like a group of long-time friends, maybe because they were friends on some level, considering how many years they’d all known each other. Or how she and Owen were now strolling along the sand at the water’s edge, hand in hand. Silent. Tucked close to ward off the unseasonable chill of the night, their hips and shoulders brushing together as they moved. His presence was comforting, the night peaceful with no need to fill the silence. After a few minutes and a sharper gust of wind that bit into them with a chill made worse by the damp fog blanketing the shoreline, Owen led them back up toward the dunes that provided some protection from the breeze and from prying eyes. He spread out the blanket and sat. Urged her to rest between his outstretched legs, her back to his chest to protect her from what was left of the wind. He wrapped his arms around

HOLIDAY SPICE: The countdown is on!!

Do you ever feel like some things take FOREVER to get here?  This is one of those times... HOLIDAY SPICE is book six in my Shaughnessy Brothers series and oddly enough, doesn't focus on a Shaughnessy brother, but instead, a Shaughnessy sister.  The lone sister - Darcy.   I have been planning her story almost since she first appeared on the page back in book one ( MADE FOR US ) and I have loved watching her grow and evolve over the course of the series.  Giving her the spotlight this time around has been pure joy. Darcy Shaughnessy has gotten used to her overbearing brothers chasing away any man she wants to date. But a chance meeting with a brooding — and deliciously handsome — artist is about to make this holiday season one to remember. There's only one thing Benjamin Tanner loves more than his woodcarving: solitude. Then he gets snowed in with Darcy in his cozy cabin in the woods, and their heated feelings begin to melt the icy barrier between them. Wit

Shall We Dance?

Sometimes as you get older, you discover something about yourself. In the last month, I have realized that I love to dance. Not the beautiful, stately dances a la Jane Austen, or the romantic waltz that requires a skilled partner to be any fun. Just modern gyrations that make no sense other than they follow the beat (mostly). And they bring me joy. Now, I am a terrible dancer. I admit this. For those of you who remember Seinfeld, cast your mind to Elaine’s spastic leg kicking and thumb tossing movements. I’m not that bad. I stay contained in my own space for the most part. But I love it. I have discovered that it is fun to be forty-six years old and no longer give a flip about whether or not I look ridiculous. I am sorry it took me this long, but I am so grateful that it happened. Whatever your age, if you try to stay open to the moving of your own heart, it may lead you to an undiscovered country. You might sing, you might write a song, you

Battle of the Books: First Funny Moment by Gina Conkle

The Midnight Meetings series is growing with a novella and a full novel coming this year. The last time I blogged here, I featured the "first kiss" in both books (you can read "It's in His Kiss" here ). On my blog last week, I featured the "first meet" in both books (the curious can click here to read that one). In the spirit of firsts, I'm presenting the first "funny moment" between the hero and heroine in The Lord Meets His Lady and Meet a Rogue at Midnight . The game is the same as the last time. Read the entries and weigh in with your vote in the comment section with which one you liked and why, because humor is just as individual as a kiss. The prize? A $5 Amazon e-gift card. The Lord Meets His Lady by Gina Conkle (Midnight Meetings series, book 3) The Set-Up: Genevieve Turner is a woman of ill-repute turning over a new leaf as respectable housekeeper in the north. She suspects Lord Marcus bamboozled her i
