AMAZON REVIEWERS LOVE THE BACHELOR'S BABY! "Good for you Dani Collins on not making this book a cookie cutter romance! The reactions to the situations were very realistic. It had the right amount of heartache and the perfect amount of romance. "Dani Collins did a perfect job with Linc and Meg. She didn't portray them as insta anything... PS... the epilogue is one of the most heartwarming ones I have read in a while." "THE BACHELOR'S BABY by Dani Collins was such a great read! I really wish I could give this story six stars, because it totally deserves it. The emotions were right on point, the characters were well developed, and of course the story itself was well-written."

Fans of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery will love Laura Drewry's warm and humorous new Friends First romance, a sexy romp about a good cop and a bad girl playing hard to get. 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.

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... COMING SOON! END OF DAYS TRILOGY, which will include Mayan Afterglow, Mayan Craving, and Mayan Inferno.

Suzanne Johnson
New Orleans is in a deep freeze with the April 21 release of PIRATE'S ALLEY, book four in the award-winning Sentinels of New Orleans paranormal series. After vanquishing undead serial killers and discovering the dark secrets of her wizarding family history, DJ Jaco thought she'd seen everything the preternatural world could throw at her. However, a rising threat will test every relationship she holds dear. Caught in the middle of a supernatural power struggle, DJ finds her loyalties torn and her mettle tested in matters both professional and personal. Her relationship with enforcer Alex Warin is shaky; her elven non-husband Quince Randolph is gaining power; and her friend Eugenie Dupre has a bombshell that could trigger the preternatural war everyone fears. Never mind that immortal French pirate Jean Lafitte, newly revived from his latest "death," has returned to New Orleans bent on vengeance. Duty clashes with love, loyalty with deception, and friendship with responsibility as DJ navigates passion and politics in the murky waters of a New Orleans caught in the grips of a brutal winter that might have nothing to do with Mother Nature.

Kat Martin
Excited about the re-issue on one of my favorite historicals, WICKED PROMISE. A story about A LADY'S DESPERATE CHOICE and A ROGUE'S TAINTED HONOR. When the loathsome Lord Bascomb tries to force her into marriage, Elizabeth Woolcot must appeal to her guardian. Nicholas Warring, known as the Wicked Earl, is a darkly handsome charismatic figure - with the power to save Elizabeth but a past that could put her reputation dangerously at risk. A ruthless womanizer, he has also been convicted of murder - and barely escaped hanging. Elizabeth can't help her attraction to the man who haunts her dreams - nor he his hunger for her. But she knows it can never be. For Nicholas is a married man - or at least appears to be. Then a heinous crime shatters their lives - and Nick is the natural suspect. Elizabeth wants to believe in his innocence more than life and love itself - but can she trust a man who has killed before? "Kat Martin delivers what readers crave... exciting, sensual, engrossing romance. A master of the genre." -RT Book Reviews Check out my new website! Join my mailing list. Order WICKED PROMISE.

New Release - TIME THIEVES, a standalone Romantic Suspense. Time has a way of solving many problems — but it also has a way of creating many more... Sari grew up with a secret that involved her missing father... The only other person who knows the truth refuses to acknowledge it. Sari can't forget what happened. Ever. She lost someone she loved. Fifteen years later, the possibility of reversing the series of events drives her to keep searching for answers. Especially now that she's finally returned to where it all happened and with the people — one in particular — that she'd been forced to leave behind. Fifteen years ago, Ward was devastated when Sari's mother fled to France with Sari. Even at ten, they'd been sweethearts. But the mystery of what happened back then had lain fallow.... waiting for someone to stir up the soil. And damn if Sari wasn't the best at doing just that... Sari and Ward are out of time. Can they solve the mystery of what happened? Or do they become the next victims...

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. 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. Book Signing: Jennifer will be in Boonsboro, MD at Turn the Page Bookstore on April 11th, 12:00-2:00pm with Nora Roberts.
