Susan Elizabeth Phillips

HOT SHOT is one of my early novels and one of my "big books," about 100 pages longer than my later work, and straddling that sweet spot I like to hit between women's fiction and romance. Of all the books I've written, I might be proudest of HOT SHOT because it was the toughest to research and way outside my writing comfort zone! It has a primary and secondary love story, something I do enjoy writing, as well as being a book about sisters. It's also a "historical novel," in its own peculiar way. If you're in the mood to get lost in a big book, can I recommend this one without seeming immodest? HOT SHOT is available in paperback and ebook. Order your copy today.

My #1 New York Times Bestseller FIRST STAR I SEE TONIGHT is now available in paperback. Click to read a sneak peek. Treat yourself and order a copy of FIRST STAR I SEE TONIGHT today!

The final book of the Harrisons series, IT MIGHT BE YOU, comes out on February 27th.

When Officer Nick Martell learns that a sick child needs his help, he flies to the young Harrison boy's side. But once in the heart of the wealthy Harrison family, Nick faces a shocking truth---he is none other than a Harrison son himself, born of a secret affair. Though the blue-collar bachelor struggles to accept the elite clan as his own, compassion for the vulnerable boy compels him to stay. That, and the deep spark of connection he feels for the child's beautiful nurse . . .

Amanda Kozlov never felt such a strong and sudden passion for a man before. But falling for Nick is not an option---the life the rugged cop leads is too dangerous, the wounds he carries from his explosive family history too fresh. Yet watching Nick bond with the young boy in her care, experiencing tenderness in his arms, Amanda longs to take a chance on the one man who could save the Harrison heir---the only man with the power to shatter her heart. And as drama swirls around them, only time will tell if they're brave enough to give their love the future it deserves . . .

After working for Bullard for five years, Kasha knows most of Levi's team. Brandon is new to her though, but not for long. He is instrumental in planning her boss's rescue and seems to always be at her side in the ensuing days as they determine the mess Bullard has accidentally stepped into -- a gun running deal gone wrong, the holding coming under attack. Emotions, heightened by danger, run strong as Brandon positions himself instinctively at Kasha's side.

She doesn't need Brandon's protection but loves being with him. Yet if they want a future together they have to find a way out of this mess before they join the bodies stacking up outside...

It's February--and now there's just one month before Linda's first book of the year will be published. It's SECOND CHANCE SOLDIER, the first in her new K-9 Ranch Rescue miniseries for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

As Linda mentioned in her January Writerspace Blog, the K-9 Ranch Rescue stories take place near the fictional town of Chance, California, at a K-9 ranch where all kinds of dog training takes place.

Here's the back cover copy for SECOND CHANCE SOLDIER:

Devastated after her father's murder, Amber Belott wants to keep his legacy alive by saving his K-9 ranch. Her first move? Hiring Evan Colluro, a former military K-9 trainer, who impresses---and attracts---her. If only she weren't his boss...and his past didn't trouble him. Evan joins Amber in investigating. But when chaos erupts, it threatens all that's drawing them together.

Romance. Suspense. And dogs!

And there are more to come.

Laura Marie Altom

Who knew Valentine's Day could be so complicated? LOL! For the third book in my new SEAL Team: Holiday Heroes series, BE MY VALENTINE, BABY, my research has been off-the-charts!

Not only did HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY end with a cliffhanger regarding Tanner and Jenny's survival, but this story opens with still more literally explosive action when they're both still trapped in a house fire with no way out!

Without giving too much away, in the past few weeks I've had to become a burn center expert, coma doctor, baby doctor, event planner for figuring out the perfect romantic Anchorage, Alaska restaurant for Valentine's Day dinner, and an urban development planner by creating an idyllic mountain valley where more residents of Kodiak Gorge will feel at home. I'm exhausted, but have my fingers crossed for Tanner and Jenny to finally get their happily ever after---I hope?

Look for BE MY VALENTINE, BABY at most online book outlets by mid-February. In the meantime, immerse yourself in this exciting new series with book #1, CHRISTMAS COOKIE BABY!

Happy Reading---Laura Marie xoxo

Magic, spell books, ghosts, witches, and wizards appear in my Two Realms series and Teen Wytche Saga novels. Each February, I look forward to PantheaCon, an annual international gathering of pagans. Experts from a wide variety of pagan paths are in attendance, providing a terrific resource for all things magical. When I researched voodoo for SPELL FOR SOPHIA, an upcoming re-release of Book 4, The Teen Wytche Saga, I attended a P-Con voodoo seminar. What a unique opportunity to witness an actual possession! (I kept way to the back of the room.) This year, as I wrap up revising THE VIKING MIST, I'll seek out the followers of the Norse gods. They are easy to spot. Their nametags are usually written in runes!

Are you ready for THE VIKING MIST? Escape the winter blues by diving into THE BELTANE ESCAPE and THE AMBER ELIXIR. Be sure to visit to sign up for my newsletter and enter to win giveaways.

If you see me at PantheaCon, stop and say hello!
