There are six books in that series now and if you're already a fan, I think you...Read More

I'm deep in the throes of writing SOLACE STOLEN, but today I took a midday break to cook up a batch of fudge to help spur me on my way.
I'll have to come up for air when my youngest son, Will, and his girlfriend fly in for a visit from London, England this month. I won't get as many pages written during that time, but I don't mind, as my son coming to see me is a big happiness on my horizon!
I've come up with two possible titles for the third book in the Solace series, SOLACE FOUND and SOLACE GIVEN. If I can't settle on one, perhaps when I get closer I'll run a poll on my Facebook page and ask for your input.

Reviewers are saying....
A LOVE TO REMEMBER, is a unpredictable, captivating and intriguing tale of love, respect, danger, betrayal and what I'd call "survival guilt". Once again, Ms. Evans brings her readers a complex, masterfully written story with engaging, realistic and believable characters. I was glued to the story from the first page to the very end. And the story lingered long after the last page.
Oh, I loved this book. It's full of passion, lust and of course two troubled leads.
5 Stars! Wow!! I LOVE this book!! I read the whole thing in one sitting!!
Every once in a while you come across a book that compels you to read it beginning to end- you connect and you cannot stop reading. This book was one of those for me. Whew! Rose and Philip's story is wonderful.
Read. Feel. Fall in Love.
Especially with the blazin' hot temperatures Linda Lael Miller's home state of Washington has experienced this summer, the First Lady of the West is looking forward to taking her readers away on an early, snowy escape to Mustang Creek, Wyoming on September 26. That's when Linda's brand new holiday gift hardcover, A SNOW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS, will be released.
A SNOW COUNTRY CHRISTMAS
Raine McCall would take snow-covered mountains over a star-studded premiere any day. But when hotshot movie executive Mick Branson arranges dinner on Christmas Eve to discuss a work opportunity, she's intrigued---by the offer and the man. She's a no-makeup, no-frills single mom, who's happy with her quiet life. Sharing chili cheeseburgers and sizzling kisses with Mick is sure heating up her holiday, but country girl and power player don't mix...
Since Mick first visited to oversee a documentary, free-spirited graphic designer Raine has been in his head. Their attraction is undeniable---and so are their differences. Putting down roots in the Wild West wasn't in his script. But there are some Christmas gifts you can't walk away from, even when they turn your whole world upside down...
Kylie Brant's newest release, DEEP AS THE DEAD (The Mindhunters Book 9), is available for pre-order!
They call him The Tailor. He leaves his victims near rivers or lakes with their mouths sewn shut and an exotic blue dragonfly placed inside. After a three-year hiatus, he's back, more violent than ever. And with three bodies discovered in just two weeks, it's clear that he's escalating.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Sergeant Ethan Manning is short on leads. What he needs is a proper task force and more resources. What he gets is Dr. Alexa Hayden, a forensic consultant from the States. A woman he hasn't seen in twenty years, one with whom he shares a history. He still bears the scars.
Returning to Nova Scotia is harder than Alexa expected, and working alongside Ethan threatens to reopen old wounds. But she'll allow nothing to shake her focus. Until she finds herself the killer's newest obsession. Now she and Ethan will have to confront their past to predict the man's next move. The Tailor will leave no sin unpunished, and his unholy crusade has marked Alexa for death.
THE DANEGELD, previously published by Rebel Ink Press, will be released by Decadent Publishing. Can hardly wait to see the new cover!
Danegeld: A tax levied in Anglo-Saxon England from the 10th to the 12th century as tribute to the Danish invaders.
Rosilyn Hugh de Lassy, a former Special Operator and now sole owner and operator of De Lassy Inquiries, can proudly trace his family tree back to the Normans who helped William the Conqueror win at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Like his Norman ancestors, if Ross wants something he goes after it, and he wasn't afraid to work hard to get it.
When Nels Rainer Kirkegaard, possessor of a PhD in History, talented artist and skilled wood-worker, inherits his grandfather's furniture business, he is surprised by the stipulation he has one year to sow some wild oats before assuming the leadership of the company. In a chance encounter in a Washington, DC pub, Norman and Viking meet, and Ross surprises himself by hiring Nels to help him renovate the rundown monstrosity he intends to turn into office and living quarters.
When Nels' silver blonde hair and Arctic blue eyes make him the target of a sex slave ring, Ross is compelled to rescue him. He is very good at finding things, and no self-respecting Special Forces operator leaves a friend behind. However, while searching for clues to discover where the Viking was taken, Ross finds one of Nels' pen and ink sketches and realizes the Dane could become more to him than just a friend. Ross has a major decision to make when he finds Nels. Should he, like his Norman ancestors, pay the Danegeld and live in harmony with the Viking, or refuse and live at war with himself?
