Raz Steel

Looking for a fresh vista on vampires? BLOOD BETWEEN LOVERS is now available in print for a special price of $9.99 for a limited time and digitally for $4.99 at all your favorite online sites!

BLOOD BETWEEN LOVERS is the second installment of the Eternal Eros Trilogy. A vampire. Alone. Struggles to validate his existence. But only the love of a woman is worth the price of immortality.

NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Susan Sizemore said, "For a genuinely fresh and fantastic new take on vampire romance, Raz Steel is your go-to-guy and the one to watch."

In the late nineteenth century, Dr. Sigmund Freud prescribed Love Without Blood for his vampire patient Bobby Eyre... because blood is the Vampiric Eros for life, love, sexuality, preservation and the only way to cling to his humanity!

LOVE WITHOUT BLOOD, book one of the Eternal Eros Trilogy, available digitally and in print now, sparked a four star review from Romantic Times BOOK reviews. "This debut is a highly entertaining and unique take on the vampire genre. Steel's novel is sure to keep you guessing, especially after you think you have it figured out."

I've been so thrilled with both the response to and sales for THE SECRETS YOU KEEP, my new psychological thriller, a book Suspense Magazine called a perfect meal of psychological thrills...full of mysteries, twists, turns, thrills and chills...that will cause readers pulses to race."

It's the story of an accomplished self-help author, Bryn Harper, who begins to fear that her new husband is not who she thinks he is, and that he may be somehow connected to the brutal murder of a woman who catered a dinner party for them. If you're looking for a twisty read to curl up with on your porch in spring weather, I hope you'll check it out. Enjoy your spring!!!

Carolyn Haines

BLACK CATS AND BONES

USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Haines has two new releases for May. STICKS AND BONES, the 17th Sarah Booth Delaney mystery goes on sale---and Sarah Booth and Tinkie are thrown into a five-year-old murder that still reverberates in the Mississippi Delta.

Frangelica "Sister" McFee is perhaps the snarkiest character to come out of the alluvial Delta soil. Sarah Booth and Tinkie have their hands full.

And TOO FAMILIAR, a reissue of the popular black cat detective second in the series, goes on sale May 8.

Familiar is patterned on E.A. Poe, a black cat Haines owned for 15 years. The re-release of the older Familiar books is setting the groundwork for a brand new black cat series, Trouble, son of Familiar. Which will release this summer.

MAKE ME BEG is here!

"Intensely sexy and packs an emotional punch!" -- #1 NYT Bestselling author Lauren Blakely

"A quick, easy and fun read with engaging characters, snappy dialogue and molten hot love scenes. That sounds like a perfect recipe for a satisfied reader to me." -- Heroes & Heartbreakers

He'll bring her to her knees.

Bartender Mackenzie Ellinsworth has always gone it alone. So when she has a chance to open her own bar and restaurant, she's got a plan for how it should go. Not in that plan: a ripped and rugged playboy stepping in to take over. Mack doesn't do players, and she doesn't do one-night stands. If Connor wants to work with Mack, he's going to have to keep his strong, sexy hands to himself.

Connor Branding is determined to prove he's not the directionless playboy Mack thinks. But opening a place together causes more problems than it solves. The two of them can't agree on anything---except how scorching hot their chemistry is. Connor may be ready to indulge every desire Mack's been denying herself...but turning business into pleasure is likely to get him burned.

Happy May!

And some thoughts on finding Your Dharma...

Though the word has no single translation in western languages, Dharma is understood to be your vocation, your life calling or in the simplest form, doing what you love.

So what is it that you love? Maybe it's hiking or knitting or volunteering. Whatever it is, the key is to make time for it in your life.

My Dharma?

Well you probably already have guessed. It's writing romantic suspense stories.

DUSK TO DAWN is my latest and as we head into May, I'm working hard to get it off to my editor by month's end. (Fingers crossed)

Until then...

DUSK TO DAWN

A childhood bond that can never be broken...

A brutal murder...

A look behind the camera of the world's hottest reality show, where not everything is as it appears...

Swept up in a dangerous game of power and money, Avery Nicks is determined to solve the mystery behind a Hollywood murder. But with every clue she uncovers, the deadlier the game becomes. Now she's at risk of losing everything, including the handsome stranger who seems to show up exactly when she needs him the most...

May 2---RED WOLF, a full-length Shifters Unbound novel is out! Jaycee and Dimitri have been friends forever, but can they transition to mates without driving each other crazy?

Dimitri and Jaycee, Kendrick the White Tiger's most trusted trackers, are asked to go undercover to infiltrate a group of Shifters who may be working to enslave them all.

A man is only as strong...

Red wolf shifter Dimitri has fought his whole life for respect. It is claimed that red wolves are tainted with coyote blood and are therefore not pure. He may not be skilled at verbally defending himself, but as a bodyguard, tracker, and champion of the fight clubs, his fists are always ready for some rough and tumble. However, he'd prefer a roll in the hay with the woman who's been his oldest friend.

...as the woman who's got his back...

A spirited leopard shifter and a fellow tracker, Jaycee Bordeaux has no problem forging a mate bond with Dimitri, but soon the two are called to infiltrate a rogue group bent on enslaving Shifters. Jaycee may have defended Dimitri from taunts before, but they now face a more lethal danger---one that not only threatens the future of their people, but also their love.

Also coming this month: Look for the audiobook release of RIDING HARD: TYLER (Book 4 of Riding Hard), on Audible and iTunes.

Believe it or not, opium could be bought over the counter like a tonic until 1864, and was not restricted as a medicine until 1901.
