BLOOD MONEY, NYPD Blue & Gold Series

In the safety of his arms lies passion...and danger

NYPD Detective Gray Yates has major trust issues. Protecting a serenely beautiful woman hiding enough secrets to take down an entire city wasn't something he bargained for. She's a loving single mother, hot as hell, and protecting her will test every ounce of his resolve.

Alex Romano is being blackmailed by the Pyramid---an elusive international organization of assassins every cop in the world is after. When Alex tries severing ties with them they refuse to let her go. The darkly dangerous detective she's irresistibly drawn to is her only hope of staying out of jail. He just might be her savior...or her downfall.

February is not only American Heart Month, but is also An Affair to Remember Month. Do you know the wonderful classic film with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant? Both engaged to other people, they fall in love, and make plans to meet up at the Empire State Building's observatory to finally be together. But tragedy destroys their plans, and misunderstandings keep them apart until many years later. Be sure to have your Valentine hanky handy for the spectacular ending. This time last February, I was shepherding my eighth novel, THE STRANGER INSIDE  into the world. It's about a (very) complicated, successful St. Louis woman who comes home from a business trip to find that a strange man has moved into her house and changed the locks. Is it a love story? Not exactly. But its suspenseful secrets are rooted in loves of the past---forbidden love, unrequited love, and lost love. I'm thrilled that this month, THE STRANGER INSIDE is coming out in paperback. Want to read more about it? Read an excerpt here. Stay cozy, read lots, and keep those doors locked! Have a wonderful, heart-filled February ??

The weather outside might be freezing where you live (It's Brrrr! weather here in Pennsylvania), but I'm inviting you to travel with me once again to the hot, hot, hot Outer Banks with my latest Bell Sound Series novel, A HERO COMES HOME.  This may be my best book yet (and that's almost fifty and counting); even my editor says so.

Tears and laughter guaranteed!

Lauren Smith

A Irish vampire falls for a fox shifter in Lauren Smith's hot new paranormal romance HIS LITTLE VIXEN. Out now in all stores! Grab it here.

Sadie Harris doesn't like immortals. After vampires leave her an orphan, she's raised by her grandmother at the edge of a werewolf pack's territory. As a fox shifter, she knows the rules about werewolves: Stay clear of the boundaries, never go out after dark during the full moon and take a vacation far, far away when she goes into her shifter mating heat or else she'll attract literal "big bad wolves." But when her flight gets cancelled and her mating heat is coming - so are the wolves. The last thing she expects is to get rescued by a tall, dark and gorgeous man...er...vampire. What's a vixen to do?

Seamus Gallagher might be immortal but his life is full of mortal problems: he's been framed for the murder of the woman his two best friends loved; he's on a mission to find and kill his sire; and, he has no idea what to do with the feisty red-headed vixen he just rescued from a vicious werewolf pack. He doesn't have time to babysit a skittish shifter who hates vampires, but when he looks at her, Seamus sees trouble. Sexy, sweet, and irresistible trouble. The last thing this vamp needs is to fall in love

Hi Friends, AGAINST THE SKY was just re-issued in digital (1/24) with a fabulous new cover! The story unfolds in the gorgeous state of Alaska, a place very dear to my heart.

AGAINST THE SKY is a fish out of water story.  Nick Brodie, an ex-Anchorage cop, is tough as nails, a true man's man, comfortable in the hard life in Alaska.  But Samantha Hollis, owner of a pet grooming parlor in San Francisco likes shopping at Sak's and a day at the spa.  It was fun finding ways to make their relationship work when they seem so very far apart. This one's very fast paced, but it has a soft heart.  I think it's one of my best.

A few reviews from readers ...

"It has a lot of moments that make you want to smile/laugh as well as those that make you cry/cringe."

"When you step into the Brodies world you are sure to go on the adventure of your life; with suspense, action, intrigue, and super sexy alpha men who love and protect their women with all they have."

"The danger of the outside nature world and the human dangers keep you in your chair turning pages to the wee hours of the night."

Pam Binder

Men in Kilts is a timely topic as I'm announcing the release of THE INSCRIPTION. Many of you know my passion for time travel and with THE INSCRIPTION, I combined this passion and added immortal legends and Scottish Highlanders. Hundreds of years ago the English considered Highlanders immortal because they lived almost twice the lifetime of someone in the rat invested cities of London. It's understandable from a twenty-first century perspective. In the Highlands people spent more time in the fresh air, drank unpolluted water, and ate fresh food. This got me thinking about immortal legends. There was the movie, The Highlander, and the television series. But there were also characters from history. There was Markandeya, an ancient sage from the Hindu tradition who was granted "deathlessness", Nicolas Flamel who found the Book of Abraham and a spell for immortality, and Sir Galahad, who found the Holy Grail.

Please join me in the world of immortals, with THE INSCRIPTION, about an immortal warrior who rescues a mysterious woman from Loch Ness, believing she is the one who haunts his dreams. But will falling in love with her, save him, or condemn him to a lifetime of loneliness?

Time is an illusion and love the only reality.
