    I’m often asked when I started writing and I have to be honest, I can’t remember when I wasn’t writing. I loved books as a kid and like many authors I ran out of stories that I liked to read so I began to make up my own. I wrote my first teen novel when I was thirteen and my first romance when I was seventeen. Of course neither manuscript was very good, but I never gave up and after I finished Graduate school I decided to take some time for myself and get back to my writing. I’m so glad I...

November News

Pam Binder

My new time travel, CHRISTMAS KNIGHT, goes on sale November 6 and draws on the elements I love as a romance writer: The magical season of Christmas, a hero who is a knight in shining armor, a strong, independent heroine, and a location along the mist-shrouded cliffs of Great Britain. Conference season is over for me, and preparations to travel to visit our family in Europe begins. It was during this time last year that the idea for this story began.

I've always loved the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. In 1485, Sir Thomas Malory's book, The Death of King Arthur, was published and it was an instant bestseller. Malory thought readers would be drawn to the stories of magic and adventure, but it was the love story that held everyone's attention. Until this book, the idea of romantic love seemed illogical.

In CHRISTMAS KNIGHT my hero doesn't believe in love. Rather, he believes that he must marry in order to break a curse that Merlin placed on his family.  When he meets a mysterious woman from the future, his world is turned upside down.

Please check out CHRISTMAS KNIGHT, where time is an illusion and love the only reality.

JC Hay

Lots of news for JC Hay this month -- PETS IN SPACE 4 had a huge release, leaping to claim #1 Romance Anthology on Amazon, Kobo, and Nook.

And if that's not enough fun, JC and fellow Pets author Veronica Scott were featured on Bernadette Walsh's podcast, Nice Girls Reading Naughty Books. That's lots of good news for Pets in Space, and their charity Hero-Dogs.

HOLIDAY MAGIC

Sheltered would be an understatement as to how Lessy Jones was raised. Now she is on her way to Assjacket, West Virginia with only her furry best friend and a broken heart. Leaving town was her way to escape her overbearing father, but the dream of opening her store was supposed to be with the love of her life. However, Billy Wilder has vanished without a trace.

Mary Jo Putney

Mary Jo Putney has two more audio releases coming in November.  First out will be ANGEL ROGUE, Fallen Angels #4. 

ANGEL ROGUE:

A master spy with the face of a fallen angel and a darkly heroic past, Lord Robert Andreville returns to his ancestral home in Yorkshire after a dozen harrowing years spying against Napoleon. But nothing soothes his ravaged spirit until a determined young beauty sweeps into his life.  Half Mohawk and all American, Maxima Collins is a wary stranger in a strange land, but she will let nothing halt her journey to London to learn the truth about her father's sudden death---not even a self-appointed guardian who is all lazy charm and dangerous skill....

Also being released in November is an audio version of the popular novella THE CHRISTMAS CUCKOO. Meg Lambert drives to the local inn to collect her brother's friend Jack Howard--and comes home with the wrong Jack Howard. With Meg, Jack finds a warmth he's yearned for all his life, but what will happen when the right Jack Howard turn up for Christmas?

Both new releases are narrated by Siobhan Waring.  Exact release dates and links aren't yet available.

WHISPER OF BONES, Book 3 in the Widow's Island series is available now!

Dark secrets from the past bob to the surface in the third novella in the Widow's Island series.

When a body washes up on the state park beach, Deputy Tessa Black's experience as a former Seattle detective tells her that the death was not an accident. All evidence points to another murder on the remote island.

The victim is a local contractor with a shockingly long list of enemies. The more locals Tessa interviews, the more people she suspects---from the bitter ex-wife and estranged current wife to disgruntled former clients and employees. They all have different reasons to want him dead.

As Tessa's investigation heats up, arson and a vicious assault convince her the killer is desperate to hide his crime---and that she'd better solve the case before he claims another victim.

And don't miss Book 4, BRED IN THE BONE, released by Kendra Elliot on October 29.

DARK 'N' DEADLY

Secrets will tear them apart.

ATF Special Agent Eric Miller and his explosives detecting K-9, Tiger, pull over a truck, the contents of which are explosive. Literally. More shocking, the driver is the kid brother of a woman he left behind. One who still haunts his days and his nights.

They'd never so much as kissed, but Tess McTavish never forgot the handsome, dangerous agent who vanished in a shroud of mystery. Now the last thing she needs is an ATF agent with his own agenda. Doesn't matter that Tess and her brother are innocent. If Eric learns the truth of their past, they'll never be free.

Eric's drive for revenge against the man who targeted him and his colleagues in a deadly explosion still burns hot inside him. Another bomb is about to be detonated and he's sure there's a connection between that man...and Tess's family. But Eric and Tiger will do everything they can to protect the woman he's falling for from what's coming...

DARK 'N' DEADLY is available now at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Google and Books A Million. Check out books 1 and 2 of this series, LOCK 'N' LOAD and ARMED 'N' READY.

Kat Martin

Don't miss this scorching novella, part of what Publishers Weekly is calling Kat Martin's "tantalizing" new Maximum Security series!

Private detective Jaxon Ryker swore to himself he would keep his hands off Mindy Stewart. No matter how much Jax might secretly wish otherwise, his colleague at The Max is strictly off-limits. But when Mindy is the victim of an attempted kidnapping, everything changes. With both of them thrust into danger, Jax swears to protect her. As they work together in search of answers, it becomes clear Mindy's life is on the line, so a trap is set---with Mindy as bait. Jax and Mindy have to put aside their overwhelming attraction, but if they live through this, all bets are off...

"Martin keeps the twists and turns coming in the sensuous and spirited Maximum Security romantic thrillers."---Publishers Weekly

Donnell Ann Bell

Donnell Ann Bell's newest novel, BLACK PEARL, releases November 8, 2019. Readers of Cold Case Suspense who love Colorado settings might want to pick up Bell's latest.

A cold case heats up when a 9-1-1 call puts police at a Denver murder scene pointing investigators to the abduction of a Colorado teenager fourteen years before. The connection? A calling card---a single black pearl---is found on the newest victim. Is the murder a copycat? Or has a twisted serial killer, thought dead or in prison, returned to kill again?

The hunt for a multi-state killer is on and brings together an unexpected team: a Denver Major Crimes police lieutenant; an FBI special agent who investigated the previous murders, a rookie FBI agent with a specialty in psychology; and the only living victim of the Black Pearl Killer is now a cop.

For Special Agent Brian DiPietro, the case is an opportunity to find answers. For Officer Allison Shannon, the case will force her to face down the town that blamed her for surviving when another did not. And for both DiPietro and Shannon, it's a chance to find closure to questions that have tormented them both for years.
