51xCAIVhk0LUnlocking Dreams: (Special Forces: Operation Alpha) A Flipping Love Story, Book 1

A dream house. A dream man. And a nightmare that could destroy everything.

Six years after Isabella Harper’s unscrupulous boss destroyed her real estate career, her house-flipping business is on the brink of success–or it would be, if her main competition, sexy ex-SEAL Ian Parker, wasn’t outbidding her on every promising flip in town.

Finally, she lands a neglected Victorian home that will fix her ruined reputation. Except a persistent vandal threatens to derail her tight schedule and even tighter budget. Plus, Ian inexplicably starts showing up, offering to help. And making her heart hammer with desire.

It’s not just profits that drives Ian to keep plenty of flippable houses his renovation pipeline. Working himself to exhaustion keeps his deployment nightmares at bay. But letting Bella win that house is worth the smile she aims at him…and now he can’t get enough of it. Or her.

As they work side by side, Ian dares to hope he’s close to bidding his heart goodbye. But when Bella suddenly disappears, his nightmare takes on a new face. Hers…if he doesn’t reach her in time to save her from a threat no one saw coming.

1800cupidcover1-800-CUPID by USA Today Bestselling Author Josie Riviera.

A house flipper looking for quick profit. A survivor with a dream. Can two broken hearts find a place to call home?

When a Miami investor calls in search of prime property-flip prospects, North Carolina real estate broker Candee Contando expects to meet a balding, steely-eyed land shark. Turns out the first customer she’s had in months is a hot prospect in more ways than one.

Except his gaze has fallen on her dream house, a dilapidated Victorian she just bid her last penny on in hopes of creating a safe place for disadvantaged children – like the girl she used to be.

Teddy Winchester is adept at negotiating life’s curves, but Candee’s curves stop him in his tracks. She’s a warm spark in the emptiness he’s felt since his brother died, leaving him with a beloved nephew to raise.

Attraction glows in Candee’s eyes as well, but there’s also wistfulness as she points out all the reasons an old, tumbledown Victorian doesn’t fit into his tried-and-true house-flipping plan. Yet the more he looks at the house – and at her – he begins to think some things are worth the risk.

Now if only he can convince her that building a new life often starts with tearing down some walls….

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.

Recent Projects: Aether Psychics series by Cecilia Dominic

AP1The scientific method: Love doesn’t obey it. Secrets skew the results.

After a dishonest woman broke his heart, renowned aetherist Edward Bailey buried the pieces under a strict routine built on solid, scientific predictability. Any deviation doesn’t just bother him—it short circuits his carefully cultivated balance.

A routine faculty meeting unexpectedly presents a twin challenge to his comfort zone. Not only does the beautiful Iris McTavish appear in her famous archeologist father’s place, Edward is forced to accompany her on an undercover expedition to find an element that will harness the power of aether.

Iris is determined to prove her worth as a scholar and scientist, and save the financially ruined house of McTavish without accepting an unwanted marriage proposal. But keeping her secret is difficult when she’s faced with Edward’s compelling gaze and unrelenting logic.

Amid clockwork spy devices, threats from a mysterious society who’ll stop at nothing to conceal their secrets, and plots from a guild bent on stealing them, Edward and Iris’s attraction sparks and gains momentum. But betrayal awaits them on the road from Paris to Rome—and the revolutionary discovery they seek could grind their hearts to pieces.

Warning: Contains a brilliant professor with a white-knuckle case of anxiety, a woman with an ahead-of-her-time spirit of adventure, real and made-up history, and a Grand Tour that serves up murder plots and secret temples along with wine, tea, and cream puffs. You may wish to pack your shovel along with your silks.


AP2Everyone wears a mask. But the deadliest secrets hide in plain sight.

Marie St. Jean’s supreme acting talent comes with a price: Every spellbinding performance extracts a piece of her soul. When she reluctantly steps into a role abandoned by another leading lady, she encounters the reason the other woman fled in terror—a ghostly spirit who promises to fix her affliction.

Violinist Johann Bledsoe pulls her heart in a direction she dares not go, but with the Prussians surrounding Paris, she is well and truly trapped.

Johann thought he’s left disgrace and his gambling debt behind in England, but a murder outside the Théâtre Bohème makes him fear he’s been exposed. Though his heart resonates for the ravishing daughter of Madame St. Jean, he knows that once the siege is over, he’ll have to keep running.

Under the baleful eye of steam-powered ravens, more murders drive Marie and Johann closer to the truth of what really lurks below the stage, and what dangers hang over their heads. Their only hope could lie in exposing their darkest secrets—and surrendering to the Eros Element in a way that could push them irretrievably close to the edge of madness.

Warning: Main ingredients include copious amounts of wine and decadent desserts. And drama. Mon dieu, lots of drama. May result in the uncontrollable urge to applaud even if you’re reading this in a public place.

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.
