I just finished the rough draft for book 3 in the Coldwater Bay Intrigue series set off the stunning Washington coastline---my hero is an NCIS agent and my heroine is a shipwreck archaeologist. I had so much fun writing this story! But I don't want to give too much away.

You can start reading this action adventure romantic suspense series today with the first book, THREAD OF REVENGE.

Marine biologist Sadie Strand is back in her coastal hometown to prove her best friend was murdered---but searching for evidence almost costs Sadie her life. Abducted, drugged and left for dead on a sinking boat, she's barely rescued in time by Coast Guard Investigative Service special agent Gage Sessions, an old friend. Assigned to protect Sadie and connect three complicated cases, Gage risks his life time and again to make sure the woman he once loved survives. But although the handsome, guarded agent vows to protect her, someone will keep killing to ensure the truth never rises to the surface.

Mary Jo Putney

Mary Jo Putney's new Print On Demand program is launching with UNCOMMON VOWS, her classic medieval, which is a prequel to her Bride Trilogy. As part of the launch, UNCOMMON VOWS is getting a terrific new cover that really reflects the characters and the time period.

Wrenched from a monastery before taking final vows, Adrian de Lancey's fighting skill wins him an earldom. Fierce discipline masters his darker nature---until he finds a winsome slip of a girl lost in his forest, an illegal falcon on her wrist.

Encountering the ice-blond warrior Earl of Shropshire, Meriel de Vere knows his dangerous reputation---and hides her identity to protect her brother's estate from the enemy earl. She does not expect to be arrested. Still less does she expect such a great lord to want her as his mistress.

Her passionate need for freedom clashes disastrously with his obsession with his enchanting captive. Given a second chance to properly woo Meriel, can Adrian learn tenderness? Will the two of them claim lasting happiness---or will they lose all to a brutal sworn enemy?

UNCOMMON VOWS, now available in e-book and print here. Coming soon, more POD versions of Mary Jo Putney's books. and

A DEVIL OF A DUKE is coming April 24! Pre-order now! Go to for excerpt.

He's infamous, debaucherous, and known all over town for his complete disregard for scandal, and positively irresistible seductions. Gabriel St. James, Duke of Langford, is obscenely wealthy, jaw-droppingly handsome, and used to getting exactly what he wants. Until his attention is utterly captured by a woman who refuses to tell him her name, but can't help surrendering to his touch . . .

Amanda Waverly is living two lives---one respectable existence as secretary to an upstanding lady, and one far more dangerous battle of wits---and willpower---with the devilish Duke. Langford may be the most tempting man she's ever met, but Amanda's got her hands full trying to escape the world of high-society crime into which she was born. And if he figures out who she really is, their sizzling passion will suddenly boil over into a much higher stakes affair . . .

Justine Davis


Book 3 in the popular Whiskey River series from Justine Davis, the story fans of WHISKEY RIVER RESCUE and WHISKEY RIVER RUNAWAY have been waiting for!

Zee Mahan had always known the boy she loved would leave one day--Whiskey River was too small to hold the talent and charisma of Jamie Templeton forever. She just didn't realize that when he left, it would break her hometown heart.

Jamie had never lied to Zee about his plans, and when he'd left for the bright lights---and made it big---he'd thought she understood. She'd loved him and his music and had encouraged him to chase his dream. Sure, he could have gone home for a visit, but when his band caught fire, he was afraid to interrupt their momentum.

When the crazy world he was living in turned on him, Jamie walked away---back to the only place he could think of to go....home. But was it too late to find forgiveness and rekindle the fire with the only woman he'd ever loved?

Up for pre-order now, to be released on April 23rd.

A continuation of SEAL MY LOVE novella, which appeared in the anthology TROPICAL TRYST.

Navy SEAL Trace Bennett has recovered from injuries he sustained while rescuing Gretchen's daughter, Clover, from kidnappers. The man who "wouldn't let go" finds himself now tied to the single mom of three girls, by strings of duty, honor and, to be perfectly honest, lust. He's killed bad guys all over the world, and rescued his share of innocents, but he isn't sure that properly qualifies him for fatherhood.

Gretchen has opened her heart one more time to a man she did not expect to fall for. But she's determined this will be the last time. She's dusted off her mating skills and tried to melt the ice she feels in her veins towards men in general. Formerly married to a famous NBA star who cheated on her publicly, she's only got room in her life for one more chance at love. Her primary mission is to raise her three daughters and whatever else she gets for herself comes second. Dating a man who has failed at marriage isn't a great start to her new quest, but she holds her nose and jumps in feet first.
