*******REVIEW********
“Wow! This was such a terrific treat to read. I enjoyed every minute of Pink Slips and Glass Slippers and literally could not put it down – I gobbled it up with the compulsion and ease of one of my favorite beach reads, except I did not feel empty when I finished reading this novelâ??I felt warm inside, and inspired. The prose is wonderfully rich, sensual, and precise. The dialogue is outstandingâ??vibrant and life-like.

Author J.P. Hansen makes this a compulsive read, keeping the momentum at full speed. The plot weaves with new obstacles and unexpected events and I loved the “scenic” (filmic) style of the writing. The reader is never bored, always kept guessing and entertained. Well done!”

-Sophie Powell, Professor and critically acclaimed author of “The Mushroom Man”

A duke masquerading as a privateer … Jonathan Derek Wentworth has a scheme of his own: to track down the ton-based smuggling gang responsible for his father’s death. When he’s caught in a compromising situation with Lady Louisa, he decides it’s better to marry her than to risk being ostracized by the London society whose invitations are vital to his plan. But Louisa refuses to marry him, unless he meets her terms, one of which is a month-long reprieve from consummation.

Intent on seduction, Derek doesn’t count on his unexpected jealousy wreaking havoc with his emotions, his marriage, and his masquerade. Lucy, still grieving the death of her father, wants desperately to avoid another heartbreak, but fears she may have schemed herself into a marriage with the one man destined to break her heart: a man who isn’t what he seems, who obviously can’t be trusted, and who will surely leave her the first chance he gets.

Kieran’s wanted Lily for two long years, and he’s finally done waiting. Convinced she’s part of his destiny, he’s back in town with a plan: to help Lily let go of the past–and to unlock her caged passions.

A 14,000 word paranormal romance novella

EXCERPT:

With a single glance at the insanely hot cowboy leaning over the end of the bar, Lily knew to the ends of her toes he was trouble. The best, most devilishly creative sort of trouble.

“Good grief, Lils.” Her Packmate Sara sipped a third gin and tonic and eyed the cowboy with appreciation. “He’s really gorgeous. I mean, really.”

Lily nodded, too rapt in her own appreciation to respond verbally. The cowboy was long. Strong. Dark hair, dark eyes, skin that whispered of the sun-drenched desert and a hard fitness. Deliberate intention coiled around him, fitting to his muscles and informing every graceful, unwasted motion he made, from signaling the barkeep to touching the brim of his black Stetson with his fingers. And what gorgeous, talented fingers they seemed. Lily bet they could play her up, down, and sideways, setting off little earthquakes she’d deliberately forgotten how to trigger. Mm… Her wolf reared up, eager for the heat of mating. The heat she had denied herself for way too long now.

Of course, right then the dark, sexy cowboy turned his head and looked directly at Lily. Molten gaze. Heated blood jangled through her nerves in time to the toe-tapping of the band’s fiddler. The noise of the bar became a muted background as Lily stared back, the hunter in her refusing to give an inch. This interaction she recognized. He was a predator. Like her. And right now it was clear she was his intended prey.

A raised eyebrow, a sardonic but bone-melting smile tugging his lips up…god. White heat zipped through her again and left her insides electric. Like the way she felt when she was on the prowl at night. The way she hadn’t allowed herself to feel in these past two dead years. The scent of people crowding the bar, alive and lush with their needs and hopes, washed over her. And whispering through came the promise of a lusciously self-indulgent mating frenzy–if she allowed it…

by Diana Fraser

How can someone as perfect as Alessandro–a handsome Italian count–fall for someone as imperfect as Emily–the survivor of foster homes that left mental scars, and an abusive relationship that left physical scars?

But Emily can’t avoid Alessandro when she finds out he owns the estate where she’s discovered an ancient Roman site. And restoring the Aphrodite Mosaic has become an obsession with Emily–an obsession Alessandro can’t understand.

Alessandro has no interest in digging up the past because, despite appearances, he bears his own scars. Consumed by guilt over the death of his wife and son, commitment-shy Alessandro lives only for the pleasures of the present. But he hadn’t reckoned on falling in love. And love, he discovers, forces difficult choices…



Say When (Something More)

by Tara West

***Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and mature situations. Not intended for young adult readers.***

He told me to say when, but I can’t. Not with Andrés. It’s so hard to say anything when he’s trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin.

Then there’s the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I’m creating art, almost like he believes I have talent.

He’s not like any guy I’ve ever met. Not like my ex-fiancé. Not like my father. He’s got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

And now I’m scared, because that means I’ll have to trust him with more than just my body, but with my heart, too.

Christina Duval

This is the first book in the Something More Series. Book Two, Say Yes, is available now. Book Three, Say Forever, releases December 2013.

by Kerry Northe

“Wow! I love the battle of wits between these two very different women.” Beth Boyd

The Jealousy Game is the stand-alone sequel to Playing with Fidelity, Book One of HOT SET by Kerry Northe available here:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DAJRKBA/

Praise for Playing with Fidelity:

“Intriguing, engaging and hard to put down! Fantastic story and likeable characters. Loved it and can’t wait for a sequel!!!” – Bluebug

“Hot Set is a brilliantly addictive read – it’s sumptuously descriptive, intriguing, über-sexy and it hits a nice balance between playful humour and dark emotion. Northe’s characters are instantly relatable, which is no easy feat considering the superficial Hollywood world they inhabit. I highly recommend it and am tapping my foot impatiently for Part 2 to be released!” – Miss Daisy

“I bought this e-book wanting something light and easy to read while doing overnight feeds with a baby. What began as something to entertain in 30 minute stints quickly became totally engrossing and I was unable to put it down. I absolutely loved that each character was so beautifully evolved and I really enjoyed the sub-plot story line involving Amelia. It’s rare to find a chick lit book that delves into secondary characters so well. I had goose bumps near the end of the book and I can’t wait to buy the sequel to find out where this story leads.” – mwanddb

“Hot Set oozes passion. If I could I would pre-order the sequel now.” Beth Boyd (Bestselling author of Love)

“Sumptuous summer reading. A delightful setting.” Ann Abrams (Author of Mobius)

[“Hi Fox,” he beamed, pulling a chair out for her as she arrived. “It’s been a long time.” His voice was deeper than it had been when they were seventeen, and much sexier, and as he spoke his blue eyes sparkled mischievously with the slightest hint of amusement, making him look even sexier.

Fox was temporarily lost for words. “What happened to the red button-up shirt you promised to wear?” she asked, trying to hide her obvious embarrassment.]
