YSYOUR SOUND

Molly Myers is just your average groupie next door.

Literally.
The rock star whose posters cover her bedroom wall is banging her roommate right on the other side of it. Even for Molly, reigning queen of embarrassing moments, the situation is epically awkward. Every thump of the headboard is just one more reminder that the lead singers of famous bands don’t date bumbling shy girls too anxious to leave their own rooms.

Your Sound is part of the Sherbrooke Station Quartet, a series of steamy rock star standalones from author Katia Rose.

SHOPPING FOR A BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS

AMAZON     NOOK     IBOOKS     KOBO

My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together.

Sounds reasonable, right?

And it would be.

If it weren’t my mother.

My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.

And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.

Wait – why am I saying no again?

Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?

Those people are saner than my mother.

There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.

Wait a minute. Maybe there is.

My husband.

wishes-in-a-bottle-e-readerWISHES IN A BOTTLE ~ COMING JANUARY 15!

Centuries ago in plague-struck Italy, Julian DiConti cast a powerful spell in desperation to have the magical power to be able to help his people who were dying in horrific conditions. The spell goes spectacularly awry, leaving Julian enslaved to a Djinn bottle, bound to grant three wishes to each Master of the bottle until the spell can be broken. More than anything, Julian longs for a normal life – for a home, and a family. After six hundred years, however, he has begun to despair of ever being freed from the spell.

Enter Alessandra Taylor, a young woman who has followed her calling to help others, in the face of vociferous disapproval from her family, particularly her controlling father. Working at a shelter for battered women, she’s thrilled to meet the reclusive Julian DiConti, whose collection of garments from third world countries has provided funding for shelters across the country. When Julian turns out to be a Djinn from the old bottle she found in her attic, she hears his story and empathizes with his despair. Although she’s willing to free him, he can’t tell her how. As time goes by, their initial attraction blossoms into a love that both realize is doomed. Once she has made her third wish, the magic of the bottle will whisk Julian away and out of her life forever… unless she can somehow figure out how to free him. But one by one, she’s forced to use the precious wishes to help others.

Bodyguard.

Escort.

Bad boy.

I didn’t come from the wrong side of the tracks. I was the wrong side. Every cliché you could think of, my family embraced. The only advantage I had was being the best-looking out of all my brothers. Except when I joined the Marines, looks didn’t count for shit downrange.

I wasn’t active duty anymore, and working for the best personal security firm in the business, my looks were getting me in more trouble than they were worth. I just didn’t realize how much trouble until a princess from a country I’d never heard of asked for me by name. Her request was simple—me, my gun, and an art opening. But she recklessly failed to mention one crucial part of the assignment… pretend to be her new fiancé.

Now she was about to find out how reckless a bodyguard could be.

Ellery St. John’s last memory was of a bat swinging toward her head. The next thing she knew, she was cold, wet, and a sexy man was pressing his lips to hers. Too bad it turned out to be CPR instead of a passionate kiss.

Gavin thought Ellery would be safe in the small town where BBQ wars were the biggest danger, but he was wrong. Now it was up to him to help Ellery put the pieces together in order to discover who had tried to kill her and why before they both ended up at the bottom of the ocean.

NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY best selling authors, PATRICE WILTON and TRACI HALL are delighted to offer you the first book in a new series to get your heart pumping! We hope you enjoy SOCCER STUDS, Brody’s and Serena’s story as much as we do!

Serena West, 28, works in the mayor’s office, and is given an assignment to escort her teenaged soccer-hero fantasy Brody Harrison, around Detroit with the sole purpose of getting him to endorse a professional soccer team. He’d retired after a car accident wrecked his knee, but the general manager and the mayor have teamed up to make sure the soccer star comes back to the field. The billionaire bad boy doesn’t care about Detroit, or the GM, but is very interested in a new business deal. He’s in Detroit for a joint venture to manufacture an inexpensive, synthetic cleat and doesn’t care about ever stepping on the soccer field again.

If Serena can’t change his mind, she won’t get her promotion. She loves her city and knows that she can make a difference for the next generation of at-risk children. Brody’s teasing charm is more seductive than his old victory posters and her fantasies come to life with his powerful kiss. His reputation as a player is infamous and Serena knows she should guard her heart but each moment they spend together creates undeniable chemistry that puts everything she’s worked toward at risk.
Is the right man worth it?

Staying silent has kept her alive, but now her secrets might not only take her life, but also Hunter’s. As determined as Hunter is to make her talk, someone else is just as determined to keep her quiet…

Don’t miss this thrilling romance!

FOREVER GUARDED ~ NEW RELEASE

A guarded heart is a lonely heart . . .

Piper Davies is a leading researcher in the fields of viruses and nanotechnology. All she ever wanted was to help save lives. But her newest creation has the potential to be manipulated to kill a single person, as well as launch a global pandemic if it ever landed in the wrong hands. And unfortunately, someone knows what she’s created and will stop at nothing to get it. Piper’s family hires someone to protect her when the threats become dangerous.

Security specialist Aiden Creed knew all too well what someone would do to get their hands on Piper’s viral nanotech creation. His time in the British Army’s Special Air Service exposed him to the true evil that hid throughout the world. What he didn’t count on when he accepted this assignment was the danger Piper posed to his heart.

PALE AS DEATH ~ NEW RELEASE

From the dark depths of Hollywood’s past

The crime scene is horrific: the corpse of a young actress, drained of blood and cut in two. LAPD Detective Sophie Manning’s new case is high-profile and difficult—there’s no evidence to work with. And it’s a disturbing echo of the infamous Black Dahlia killing. Sophie is burning the candle at both ends, desperate to catch the murderer before he strikes again, when she starts to experience inexplicable visits…from ghosts.

Bruce McFadden has a particular talent that can help Sophie—he can speak with the dead. As a consultant for the FBI’s paranormal team, the Krewe of Hunters, he’s been tasked with Sophie’s case and they’re forced to partner up. But Sophie doesn’t want his help, and she doesn’t want to share his peculiar skill. And she certainly isn’t ready for love, despite Bruce’s attentions.

As the killer taunts the police, Sophie and Bruce will discover that the threat is closer to home than they’d ever realized. Working side by side is the only way they’ll stop this deadly sequel.

IN HIGH COTTON ~ NEW RELEASE

The second book in the USA Today bestselling Neely Kate Mystery series, a spinoff of the New York Times bestselling Rose Gardner series.

Neely Kate’s life is finally coming together. She’s living and working with her best friend, Rose. Her newly discovered brother, Joe, has decided he’s done hiding that she’s his sister, and her new boyfriend, Jed, is everything she could have dreamed of and more.

Only things aren’t going as well as she’d hoped.

Neely Kate is still keeping secrets from Rose. Joe wants to introduce her as his sister at a high society dinner even though she doesn’t know the difference between a soup and a dessert spoon. And Jed is spending more and more time away from her and won’t tell he what he’s up to. She’s worried he’s changed his mind about them, not that she’s surprised—can you build a relationship on digging up a body together?

Now someone’s calling Neely Kate about her Ardmore secrets, and her sister Kate might be locked up on a psych ward, but she has a few surprises of her own. Neely Kate can’t help wondering if it’s time to come clean about her past with the people she loves.
The dead body that turns up in her basement might be the kick in the pants she needs. Because the truth will set you free, or if you’re Neely Kate, land you in hot water.

CLEARING THE ICE, THE COMPLETE SERIES ~ NEW RELEASE

Clearing the Ice includes three best-selling hockey romance novels.

“This story will grab you and will not let you go. It was emotionally charged and oh so good. Caryn and Andrew’s second chance romance will hold you captive and make you believe in love again. The writing was great, the characters were great, and the plot was very enjoyable. This was one of the best books I have read in a while. This story embodied everything that is second chance, and the way the characters are makes this even more of a great love story. The trials they go through, the beauty of this story, the beauty. It is so worth reading.” Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty review.

This Piece of My Heart

She wasn’t looking for love. But, love came looking for her.

This Piece of My Soul

They believe love conquers all. Until it doesn’t.

This Piece of Our Being

She no longer believes that love conquers all. He questions his convictions. Alone, each faces an uncertain future. Fate, however, has other ideas.

The Clearing the Ice Trilogy follows the journey of pro hockey player Andrew Chadwick and coed Caryn Stevens as their very different worlds collide one beautiful summer day. From sweet first love to the realities of married life, Caryn grows from an innocent, sheltered coed to an independent, strong woman. Together, the couple faces every obstacle thrown their way…until a sudden and senseless accident threatens Andrew’s life and inexplicably drives a wedge between them. Shattered by the incident, paralyzed by fear, Caryn can’t provide the support Andrew needs. Distrust, fears, and secrets construct walls, while each makes choices that take them further apart. The path to reconciliation proves rocky and missteps costly.
