Recent Projects: Gallant (Enforcers & Shields of Intelligence, Book 1) by Melissa Combs

gallant-300x450No escape. No turning back. And no resisting a storm of desire…

When Reno Arjona surfaces from a dive to discover he and his boss’s woman have been left behind, he knows one thing: he’s on his own. His undercover mission to bring down Vasco, a notorious Colombian drug lord, is too important to risk blowing his cover.

Once he tows Lacey Manning through miles of stormy ocean to a deserted island, all they have to do is wait. Because Lacey belongs to Vasco, and Vasco always comes for what’s his.

Since the moment she accepted Vasco’s friendly invitation for a drink, Lacey has lived in terror, an unwilling “guest” watched day and night. Only in her bodyguard’s arms, she feels safe. And on the island, there are no distractions from the forbidden sexual tension between them…

But the storm is only the start of the danger they’re in. And the only way to save Lacey may be to break his silence—and pray that when the bullets start flying, it won’t be friendly fire that destroys their hearts.

Recent Projects: No Ordinary Fairy by Claire Davon

NoOrdinaryFairyMysterious. Magnetic. Deadly. And his only hope.

When the new guy in town blows into Pani’s pet shop, bristling with impatience as icy as the Wyoming winter, she knows instantly he’s not there to buy dog food. She also knows exactly what he is. A cougar shifter. An apex predator not unlike herself.

Rafe Anderson needs help, which isn’t easy for a cat to admit. Not only has his dog mysteriously vanished, so has his ability to shift. The only creature who can find both is Pani, a woman the local coyote pack warned him to avoid. But he’s desperate—and running out of time. The longer his cat is caged, the closer he edges to insanity.

As a Vila, a fairy with the power to enchant men, even to their death, Pani has never dared reveal her true self, much less fallen in love. But something about Rafe’s fiery green eyes and uncommon vulnerability calls to her. And his touch tells her the feeling is mutual.

Desire rolls over them like thunder, but their search uncovers a dangerous secret that could turn everything to ashes…and bring destruction howling down upon all shifter kind.

Behind Ethan Allen Doyle’s wary blue eyes lie heavily guarded emotions that unexpectedly tug on Olivia’s heart, and she finds herself wanting to win his trust.

Recent Projects: Destiny’s Plan by Victoria Saccenti

DestinysPlanFinalistIBAOne empty bus seat. Two aching hearts. A future written by Fate…

When Raquelita Muro’s overbearing mother rips her and her little sister away from their beloved Papa, one tiny, rebellious corner of Raquelita’s heart is grateful that the bus is crowded, and the only seat left is out of Mama’s sight. Next to a handsome young man.

Michael Buchanan’s beautiful traveling companion is more than something pretty to look at before he ships out for Viet Nam. Deep in her sad, whisky-colored eyes he glimpses a new dream to replace the ones he’s leaving behind. It breaks his heart to leave Raquelita in her tyrannical mother’s hands, but she gifts him with a token of love and a tender promise to exchange letters in secret.

But their first, shy “hello” has reached the ears of Fate. Fate is in the mood to see how far it can push two lonely hearts—to the brink of temptation, desperation, and despair—before they break. Perhaps beyond any hope of healing…

Recent Projects: Oh Danny Boy by Josie Riviera

51ocniqaw1lThis pot of gold could hold more than they bargained for…

Grand. Just grand. Clara Donovan’s failure to keep her brother from going off the rails—again—is a public spectacle. Including a handsome stranger who puts down his guitar case to help her talk Seamus down from Farthing’s tallest bridge.

Everything about Danny Brady reminds Clara how many times she swore she’ll never again be that pathetic, weak woman who got taken in by a good-looking man. Especially when, the next day, she walks into a new coffee shop in her little Irish town and discovers Danny’s secret.

Danny didn’t lie—technically—about his coffee shop chain. He’s just tired of women going after him for his wealth. Clara is a graceful, fiercely loyal, non-Irish Irish damsel in distress, a combination that tugs at his heart. A heart that’s spent its share of time in pieces.

Danny has never hesitated to go after what he wants, but melting Clara’s defenses will take more than hot tea and charm. He’ll have to prove he’s made of stronger stuff—even when her past threatens to tear her carefully reconstructed world to shreds.

Recent Projects: That Potent Alchemy by Tess Bowery

51J78uS1UVLIs his love her safe place to land…or just smoke and mirrors?

Grace Owens danced her feet bloody to become the finest en pointe prodigy of her generation, but the only accolade she longed for—her father’s approval—never came. Finally, broken and defeated, she cut ties and fled to London to live life on her own terms.

Now, after four years as an actress in London’s smaller theatres, a last-minute production change lands her right where she never wanted to be again. Front and center in the ballet—and back in toe shoes.

From his perch on the catwalks, machinist and stagecraft illusionist Isaac Caird can’t take his eyes off Grace. A woman who wears men’s clothing, but not as a disguise. An exquisite beauty who doesn’t keep a lover. A skilled dancer who clearly hates every pirouette.

The perfect lines of her delicate body inspire him to create a new illusion—with her as the centerpiece—that will guarantee sold-out shows. Maybe even attract a royal’s patronage. But first he has to get her to look at him. And convince her the danger is minimal—especially within the circle of his arms.

Recent Projects: Defender by Christine Pope

516+2eKIZ6LMurder…mayhem…and no place to hide.

Ever since the moment when Kate Campbell realized she wants more, deserves more, she’s known it would come to this — delivering divorce papers to her estranged husband. Creepy silence greets her knock, and she finds him brutally murdered, arcane symbols slashed across the walls in blood.

The last thing Detective Jack Sandoval needs is another witch-related crime to sweep under the rug. As the de la Paz witch clan’s expert in defensive magic, Jack knows there is some deeper form of ritual dark magic involved…and one look into Kate’s beautiful, stricken face tells him she isn’t the culprit.

He also knows this isn’t any ordinary ritual murder. It’s the tip of a cold iceberg of revenge that not only threatens Kate’s life, but could reach deep into the clan to rip out its heart.

When the two of them take refuge at Jack’s isolated house, deep in the Arizona desert, desire creates a magic all its own. But the killer will use any means to draw Kate into the open…where the fight for her life could be only the beginning of a more brutal war to come.

Warning: Contains a high body count, witches, warlocks, dark magic, blood spatter patterns not found in any detective handbook, and a tale of romantic suspense that will curl your hair along with your toes.
