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: Know Thine Enemy by Rosalie Stanton

5113mQ-W-kLHe’s a vampire with a story. She’s a woman with a past.

Izzie has dedicated years to distancing herself from her personal ghosts. Every night she faces monsters most people don’t believe exist, and though she doesn’t flinch at drawing demon blood, she never forgets the first face to show her true evil was human.

The second Ryker spots the girl with midnight hair, he knows there’s more to her than meets the eye. As a vampire, he’s been around long enough to get a feel for hunters…but she isn’t like the rest. Something about her pulls him close, until backing off isn’t an option.

When a phantom from Ryker’s past surfaces to settle an old score, Ryker and Izzie find themselves the subjects of government experimentation. They must rely on each other in a series of sexual humiliations if they mean to survive. Trust is essential to escape, but when trust turns into something more, Izzie must determine who is the real enemy. The humans who hold her prisoner, or the vampire whose touch makes her forget the bars exist.

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.

51jwzRzVTPLBad Angel

He broke free of Heaven to come to her side. Now he could pay with his life.

So much for best-laid plans. Liz is right where she usually is on a Friday night—snuggled in her favorite bunny pajamas, commiserating over a mug of hot chocolate with her best friend, Claire.

It’s just as well. Deep in her heart, Liz has no interest in a quickie hookup just to lose her v-card in time for college. She wants…more. A man who’ll love her. Cherish her. Who can’t keep his hands off her unfashionable curves.

A man like the one who just landed, with a violent splash, in the backyard pool.

When he opens his stunning eyes, Liz realizes this man with no name not only possesses extraordinary powers, he’s the man she has wished for with every fiber of her being. And they have only a few short hours before he vanishes out of her life—and her memories—forever.

She can stay one step ahead of danger. But can she outrun her heart?

Driven by single-minded desire to take from the rich and give back to the poor, Emily Cross has become the Robin Hood of hackers, plying her skills then vanishing without a trace.

But recently, the “knowing” most females in her family possess warns her someone is watching. It could be her violent ex. A sleazy CEO who wants his ill-gotten money back. Or maybe sexy, brilliant, computer expert Nathan Hawke, who has the reflexes of a lightning bolt, and intense green eyes that follow her every move.

But no way can she afford to get tangled up with anyone, especially Nathan, who’s finding and plugging holes in the system almost faster than she can exploit them. Even when he reveals he’s something more than human—and that she is his destiny—she can’t deviate from her course.

Danger is breathing down her neck, and her window of opportunity to wreak justice for those desperate families is about to slam shut. If she’s not careful to guard her back—and her heart—the fallout could cost her life.


51ovoFvMIHLWest Remembered

She could kill him with a glance.Yet he can’t get enough of her.

Liz’s coffee shop is Sweet Dreams, but she’s just found a nightmare at the back door: the dead body of a young woman, her last smile lingering on her cold, lifeless lips. Worse, Liz’s flighty business partner, Claire, wants to bypass 911 and call her new boyfriend and his eccentric group of friends.

Esau and his crew seem to travel at teleportation-fast speeds, but Claire’s insistence they have superpowers is off the wall. Still, something about one of them awakens a longing in her heart she’s at a loss to explain.

West is in the midst of discovering the coffee shop is a scene of supernatural foul play when a set of strange symptoms brings him to his knees. Something about Liz has triggered an inner rebellion against blocks someone put in his brain long ago. Not only memories, but unfathomably powerful abilities.

One instinct emerges from the mess inside West’s head: Without his protection, a soul-sucking threat could take Liz away before he fulfills his Guardian destiny.

Recent Projects: The Punishment Doctrine

41O45hxnsdLBook 3.5 in The Portland Rebels series.

Facing his demons could unlock heaven…or damn his lovers to hell.

After a week of pure deviance in Maine, Rafe, Krissy, and Mikey committed to giving this crazy triad thing a shot. Rafe has fallen harder than he ever believed possible, yet he can’t fully be with his lovers. Not with the hundreds of miles separating them, or the doubts clamoring ever louder in his mind.

He’s crisscrossing the country in a hot-ticket musical, and that success means months on the road. Sexy video chats keep the three connected, but nothing can keep Rafe’s burning loneliness at bay. It doesn’t help that his current tour stop is Atlanta, scene of the privileged upbringing—and so-called therapy—that almost killed him.

Rafe is determined to face his demons, but one visit home brings the damaging spiritual beliefs hammered into him from childhood spiraling back out of his past. And he is beginning to fear his love for Krissy and Mikey could condemn them all to everlasting punishment.
