I'm thrilled to announce that Pacific Vista Ranch, Book 5, THE WONDER OF YOU, a sexy friends-to-lovers romance releases on April 21, 2021.

One lifelong friendship. One snowy night. And one kiss that changes everything.

Renowned photographer Grant Michaels travels the world covering the international sports scene, but after a bitter divorce he returns home to Pacific Vista Ranch. Tired of life on the road, he wants stability and a fresh start.

Archivist librarian Olivia Hanlon spent the last decade stuck in her hometown. Now she has a chance at adventure: a dream job in Greece for one year.

Childhood best friends Grant and Olivia share a forever bond, always there for each other through thick and thin. When they get snowed in together at a snowboarding event, one steamy New Year's Eve kiss quickly spirals into an explosive chemistry neither can deny. Except he's ready to settle down just as she wants to spread her wings.

Will their friendship survive this newly discovered passion... or did they ruin the one relationship they each count on?

Research for this book was the most fun ever! I strapped on a backpack with actual explosive material and played "bad-guy-for-a-day" during TSA's K-9 training day at JFK International Airport. The dogs were amazing! Nailed me every time. Those noses don't miss a thing.

This is the third in my Federal K-9 series, of which there will be seven in total. Federal K-9 #5, U.S. Secret Service Officer Markus York's story, releases September 2021.

DARK 'N' DEADLY is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Google and Books A Million.

Kate White

What top suspense authors are saying about Kate's upcoming thriller, THE FIANCÉE (June 29):

"A tense, simmering, fast-paced mystery, Kate White's latest captivating thriller explores the secrets that lurk just under the surface of a picture-perfect façade. I raced through this story about a close-knit family's annual gathering at an idyllic estate that quickly turns deadly. THE FIANCÉE kept me guessing until the very end, never sure who to trust---or where the danger was hiding." --Megan Miranda, NY Times bestselling author of The Girl from Widow Hills.

"Kate White's THE FIANCÉE is exactly what we all need right now: a fast-paced, perfectly woven murder mystery, with a hearty dash of family drama. This one must not be missed!"  --Aimee Molloy, NY Times best-selling author of Goodnight Beautiful.

Here we are, just four months before my new standalone novel, THE RUNAWAY HEIRESS, is published. I can't help feeling that thrill of excitement that comes each time my publisher sends my new book baby out into the world.

What makes THE RUNAWAY HEIRESS extra special is that it is set in Hollywood, in a world I grew to know during my acting career. Also, THE RUNAWAY HEIRESS is a sexy, edgy spin-off of my Solace Island series. Sarah Rainsford has been on the run from her estranged husband for more than three years. A police lieutenant, he's desperate to find her and willing to bend any laws to get his hands on her inheritance.

With a new identity, she lands a job as personal assistant to Hollywood's golden boy director Mick Talford. He's a difficult client, but she senses hidden depths to him. Once Mick and Sarah combine forces to keep Sarah out of harm's way, they build a strong bond . . . but will it be enough to keep them both alive?

THE RUNAWAY HEIRESS will be released July 27 in mass market paperback, as well as an eBook and audiobook. Pre-order your choice of format now.

There's more buzz than a beehive surrounding Janna MacGregor's upcoming Widow Rules series launch with A DUKE IN TIME coming out June 29.

And, audiobook readers will be thrilled to learn that the incomparable Rosalyn Landor will narrate the upcoming book, which is in production now.

In the months leading up to A DUKE IN TIME'S release, Janna will share exclusive book news in her monthly newsletter, host amazing giveaways on her website, and provide tons of sneak peeks and author chats with fabulous romance authors like Amalie Howard on Instagram, Facebook, and in the lively Janna MacGregor's Ladies and Lords of Langham Hall Facebook group.

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy Reading.

DEAD ALREADY is available now!

A malicious malpractice suit hanging over his head, Zack Winston meets Bridget Larsen in her law office. Awkward.

The suite's interior design projected genteel openness. To the right of the unpretentious lobby, a glass-fronted conference room dominated the space. Hallways disappeared in either direction from the conference room, no doubt leading to various offices. Inside the conference room, three men in dark business suits occupied a table, animated as they talked and gestured. Zack felt under-dressed in casual khaki Dockers, forest-green Nike golf shirt, and dark blue casual Polo jacket.

A statuesque woman about his age glided toward him. A tailored Bordeaux-red business suit over a modest aqua blouse complemented her shoulder-length wavy blond hair and fair, lucent complexion. He pegged her as the associate to one of the distinguished men in the conference room.

The woman approached him and held out her hand. "Doctor Winston? Sorry to keep you waiting. I'm Bridget Larsen."

Zack stood, hoping his mouth did not gape too widely. They were about the same height, and he took immediate note of the ice-green shimmer in her eyes. Despite himself, he blurted. "You're---?"

"Your defense attorney." She smiled. "Did you expect someone different?"

What an amazing release for PARK AVENUE PRINCESS!

My story in the Cocky Hero Club World is live and I'm grateful for the response and fantastic early reviews. I so loved writing this emotional yet fun and sexy story. Ideas are already swirling at the possibility of another spin-off, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I hope you'll add this to your TBR and enjoy! It's available in audio, digital, and print.

(Of course I had to download my own story in audio and it's wonderful to hear my story come to life.)

Happy reading or listening!

THE BELL IN THE GARDEN, Spicetown Mystery Book Two, is available now!

Do you like to garden? Springtime fills my head with a million plans to plant and grow even more than the year before. I've already been hard at work cleaning up garden beds and planting seeds. It's actually interfering a little with my writing, but timing is important!

Springtime in Spicetown is the start of a new nursery and landscaping business, but the grand opening is a little awkward when some old buried bones show up uninvited.

Mayor Cora Mae Bingham and Police Chief Conrad Harris are faced with the Chamber of Commerce President on a rampage, the sweet biscotti-baking neighbor living a lie, the notorious town floozy being misunderstood and everyone in town speculating about who is missing.

Figuring out who the bones belong to will open up the cold cases in Spicetown and unearth all the old gossip that was never truly buried. When the rumor mill comes alive, Cora Mae and Chief Harris learn a few new things about their fellow citizens.

Connie Mann

Join me in celebrating 15 years of working as a boat captain on the Silver River in Central Florida! Wow, the time has flown by. Over the years, it's been my privilege to introduce thousands of students and visitors from around the world to this beautiful piece of paradise. And I've loved every minute of it. (Well, except really cold, rainy days, LOL!)

I've learned quite a bit about our natural environment, too, and have had a blast using this area as a backdrop for my stories. My current Florida Wildlife Warriors series is set in Central Florida and features a tough-but-tender family of Fish & Wildlife Officers.

Author Connie Mann delivers clean romance with a side of intrigue and suspense the likes of which you've never seen. Florida's untamed wilderness beckons with its beauty and mystery, but this paradise has a dark side that's waiting for you to step off the path...

If you're ready to explore the wilds of Florida, I hope you'll check out BEYOND RISK (book 1) and BEYOND POWER (book 2).

Also, for a more nautical flair, come visit Safe Harbor and meet the Martinelli sisters in TANGLED LIES, HIDDEN THREAT and DEADLY MELODY.

Happy Reading!

Linda O. Johnston

Linda O. Johnston wishes all of you a Happy Spring! Yes, as always, she remains busy writing. As mentioned before, two new Harlequin Romantic Suspense books of hers will be published later this year, in August and October--one which is part of her new Shelter of Secrets series, HER UNDERCOVER REFUGE, and the other is in the ongoing Colton series for HRS, part of this year's Coltons of Grave Gulch, UNCOVERING COLTON'S FAMILY SECRET.

Then there's next year's new mystery--more to come about that, but here's a clue. Its title will be BEAR WITNESS. Plus, another HRS or two...  Not to mention all the other ideas Linda has that she always winds up considering for a book or series.

But nothing's more important than obeying her dogs' orders--which she receives rather frequently.

So... as Linda says a lot lately, read and enjoy yourself!  And, as always, please stay safe and healthy.
