MARCH AUTHOR NEWS
Right now I am in the middle of both writing the next novel in the Mystic Creek series and remodeling living space at my son John's ranch. I'm no longer stepping over piles of boards or dodging saws or inhaling paint fumes, and it's starting to look like a real little home. I call it Camp Tumalo. It's populated by horses, cats, dogs, chickens, and steers, so far. I haven't counted the wild critters yet! Barney is the next hero, and I am enjoying the process as his story unfolds. You'll meet old friends from SILVER THAW in this next installment, as well as lots of new ones.
Robyn Carr's ONE WISH "By Far the Best" - Now that Robyn Carr's 7th Thunder Point novel is on sale, the reviews underscore that ONE WISH is not-to-be-missed. Love Romances & More says, "As much as I enjoyed the earlier books in this series, I think ONE WISH is by far the best-and that is saying a lot because they are all so good." The Book Nympho says, "I loved everything about the story, especially the romance... I never want this series to end." In ONE WISH, local florist Grace Dillon is eager for a little excitement, so she readily accepts high school teacher Troy Headly's invitation for a "friends with benefits" relationship. But when Grace's former life as a champion figure skater catches up with her, Troy realizes there's a lot more to their relationship than steamy sex after hours. He helps her fight for the life she's always wanted-and if they find love along the way, bring it on! Caffeinated Book Reviewer says, "I adored the banter and wit that developed with their friendship and the slow, surprising heat. Anytime a couple enters a no strings attached relationship I giggle to myself, we all know these things get complicated and I love watching it unfold." Buy your copy today!
My brand-new full-length Governess Brides historical, A PIRATE'S WIFE FOR ME, is available now for Kindle, iBook, Nook, Kobo... and in paperback! In the bedchamber Taran shared with Cate, he discarded his clothing, stacked it in a neat pile at the base of the closet, and climbed into bed. He snuggled close to Cate's back and kissed the nape of her neck. She murmured a sleepy rejection. He kissed her ear. She jabbed him with her elbow. He chuckled and kissed her neck again. She sighed loudly, then turned over and slid her arms around his waist. "You are a villain to wake me now." "Go back to sleep and I will hold you." "Too late. I am awake." She kissed his mouth. God. "One kiss from you, my unknowing princess, and I am no longer a brigand without country or family. You make me a man on the brink of the most glorious adventure of my life-an hour spent in your arms." She smiled into his face. "If you can make it last an hour, I will happily declare you a god."

They warned her that the tall, dark, and sexy black-ops soldier Jory Dean would try to win her over with his steel-gray eyes and deadly charm, but she won't be conned by this man they call a traitor.

Ellie Palmer and cops don't mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale-again-doesn't help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett's by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won't change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms. Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy's trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn't complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he'll have to choose between breaking her heart... and breaking the rules.

She's also the most feared and merciless demon hunter in The Company. She's come a long way from the penniless seamstress's daughter sold to the highest bidder, and it wasn't by trusting a man, let alone an exiled Marquis with more on his mind than slaying the hellspawn... For Dorian Lambert, Marquis de Montalembert, being sent to keep track of Lillian is no mean task. He's wanted the fiery vixen since he first heard of her five years ago. But wooing the lady while fighting the demon uprising is no easy feat, especially when the lady's tongue is as sharp as the Japanese sai blades she favors for eviscerating the spawn of hell. These two will have to learn to trust each other fast, because the demon master is back, and he's planning to turn Edinburgh into a living hell...

It's almost Spring. For some parts of the United States that's hard to believe, but it will come. So you should be planning your Spring Reading. I look forward to reading other people's books. I listen to a lot of books on tape because I drive my daughter around to extra curricular activities several days a week. While she's busy on whatever electronic device she chooses, I get to listen to someone else tell me a story. So what's on my reading list? I'm currently listening to Fly Away by Kristin Hannah. I have books (real books) to read for the Romance Writers of America RITA contest. Those I'm going through and happy to say the stories are really good. The month of February is what the New Jersey Romance Writers call JeRoWriMo or Jersey Writing Month. As a group, we write more than a million words. The goal of JeRoWriMo is for each individual to write 30,000 words in 28 days (29 in a leap year). Personally, I wanted to begin and finish a book. My personal goal was to write 60,000 words or twice the daily number of JeRoWriMo. And it's working. Last year I completed 66,000 words. By the 28th of February 2015, the book that I hope to publish in 2016 will be done. Until next time, keep reading.

Jennifer Probst's new release CHASING ME is out March 3rd! CHASING ME is the sequel to BEYOND ME from the Sex on the Beach Series! Quinn and James' Story Continues in CHASING ME... It was supposed to be a love story... I knew she was out of my league but I didn't care. Looking back, I wonder if I hadn't pursued her, would things have turned out differently? Is it Fate that determines our choices in life? God? Free will? Or just plain old innate selfishness? I got her, of course. There hadn't been a girl I wasn't able to seduce. Problem was she seduced me right back, body, mind, and soul. She possessed me, tormented me, and showed me a world that was so bright and pure I was almost blinded. Didn't she know after such a drug I could never settle for less? Didn't she realize no matter how many times I screwed up, or broke her heart, or bent her to my will, I'd never be able to let her go? If I hadn't known such intensity existed, would it have been better for both of us? This isn't a love story. But it's the only story I got.
Do you believe in fate? THE THREE FATES OF RYAN LOVE, a Pocket Books original, is available now in print and eBook. See what happens next to the incredible Love family and their story which began with The Five Deaths of Roxanne Love. Available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, IndieBound.

But she has no idea how close to home her fears still are. Two college girls have gone missing in the area, and FBI Special Agent Deacon Novak is called to work on the case. When his inquiry unexpectedly leads him to Faith, he finds a beautiful and brave woman he can't help but fall for. Soon they'll discover that this seemingly simple investigation is anything but.

Harlequin has purchased the paperback rights for THE HANGING OF SAMUEL ASH, the fourth book in the Hook Runyon Mysteries, for their WorldWide Mystery Series. Railroad bull Hook Runyon and his dog, Mixer, are chasing persistent pickpockets on the Santa Fe line, when Hook is called to investigate a malfunctioning wigwag signal in the middle of nowhere. A young man has been strung up there, hung from the signal, and left strangled to death. Hook finds no identification on the body, other than a bronze hero’s medal around the corpse’s neck, with the name Samuel Ash engraved on it. Refusing to bury what seems to be a World War II hero in a pauper’s grave, Hook vows to find the dead boy’s family, as well as his killer. With the casket in tow, and slowed down by an over-educated sidekick, Junior Monroe, and a stream of new tasks from the head of division, Hook finally finds his way to Carmen, Oklahoma. But no one there has ever heard of anyone named Samuel Ash. There are secrets in Carmen, most of them associated with the local orphanage and its disliked director, and Hook is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery of the hanging of Samuel Ash.
BEFORE I FALL is out this month. A brand new book that New York Times Bestselling author Gina Maxwell calls "A compelling story of love and life that will break your heart, then piece it back together. Noah and Beth are beautiful together" Stay focused. Get a job. Save her father's life. Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. She'll do whatever it takes to take care of her father, even if that means tutoring a guy like Noah - a guy who represents everything she hates about the war, soldiers and what the Army has done to her family. Noah Warren doesn't know how to be a student. All he knows is war. But he's going to college now to fulfill a promise and he doesn't break his promises. Except he doesn't count on his tutor being drop dead gorgeous and distracting as hell. One look at Beth threatens to unravel the careful lies Noah has constructed around him. A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both.

Readers can view the video book trailer here. Suspense Magazine calls it "A fantastic thriller that will have you trapped in its pages; Staub has made sure that it is virtually impossible to set this one aside."

For Sandra Worth, March is a red letter month for two reasons. Richard III, the "King in the Parking Lot" and the subject of her Rose of York series of novels, will finally be laid to rest after being dumped, without a shroud, into a hastily dug grave one dark night five hundred years ago. The story of how he ended up that way is the stuff of novels, a fascinating tale of love and war, betrayal and revenge, honor, treachery, and friendship to the death. The love story at its heart may have inspired Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and it is Sandra's fervent hope that you who love romance will pick up a copy of one of her books. March is also the month where she bids you a reluctant but fond farewell. She has enjoyed being part of the Writerspace family but sadly, urgent personal issues draw her away.
