Kate White

It's just a little over three months now until the release of my next suspense novel, THE FIANCÉE, and I'm starting to get really psyched. It's a riveting story about a family vacation on a bucolic estate that goes horribly awry--what you might call a "locked room mystery" because everything takes place in one location. That means when a brutal murder occurs, you're not wrong to assume the killer is right there in the house, sitting at the same dinner table as everyone else. I think it's a perfect choice for fans of Lucy Foley and Ruth Ware

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! The first book in the Tovenaar series, THE HIDDEN, is on sale for $.99 in eBook format at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple Books and KOBO through March 14th.
They'll risk everything for each other...

Lily Montgomery is finding refuge from her vicious divorce and constant self-loathing by writing about the monsters who inhabit her dreams. But then, when she's rescued by a vampire, she discovers that her monsters are real. Not only that, she's being pursued by shapeshifters who fear she'll reveal their secret to humans. Her rescuer is the only constant in her now chaotic world. And, to Lily's surprise, she fears more for her heart than she does for her life when she's around him.

Valerian DuCharme is an unusual vampire. Although he's an enforcer for one of the houses of The Hidden, he's welcomed by the principled everywhere for his charisma, his caring, and his powers. Valerian lost his true love when he was turned, and his heart has been encased in ice for hundreds of years. Until he meets Lily. And he warms to her charms. But his job is to keep Lily safe. Can he do that and love her, as well?

Happy Reading.

Do you enjoy romance novels about a couple needing a second chance at love?

When veterinarian Kate Mathers drives past the scene of a terrible accident and sees two ambulances race away, she whispers a prayer for those involved, not realizing that it's her husband's car in flames down in the ditch and that there was a dead woman in the car with him---a complete stranger. And now Jared is in the ICU on the verge of death, and only a miracle can save him.

She's at his bedside, trying to face Jared's precarious situation and also deal with the fact that someone is targeting both her husband and her veterinary practice, and her husband was with another woman. How had their perfect marriage gone so wrong?  Or did it?

If only they can have one more chance to talk and to forgive, and one more dance in each other's arms....

Mike Krentz

Greetings!

I'm Mike Krentz, a retired navy emergency and public health physician, author of six medical, psychological, and military thrillers that feature flawed but determined characters.

In my current medical thriller, DEAD ALREADY, past-haunted emergency physician Zack Winston and case-hardened defense attorney Bridget Larsen battle a malicious lawsuit. They uncover a medical conspiracy trading in drugs and murder. As they peel back layers of truth, past relationships and current alliances destabilize -- threatening both their lives. A new bond ignites between them.

My earlier FLAGSHIP military thriller series features men and women warriors caught in a vortex of international aggression, provocations, and unusual alliances -- among nations and among themselves. Personal and family challenges don't take leave when a foreign aggressor launches a weapon.

STOP THE PRESSES!

Yesterday I signed a contract with TouchPoint Press for publication of my sixth novel (preliminary title, SPIRITUS). The ritualistic murder of a Catholic archbishop scrambles the lives of an ex-seminarian criminal profiler, a renegade priest cult leader, and the former nun they both desired in a cross-border psychological thriller featuring convoluted identities, cultism, vengeance, and redemption. Must two die for one to live? William Shakespeare, John Donne, and Edgar Allan Poe provide commentary.

Madeline Hunter

HEIRESS IN RED SILK, the second book in A Duke's Heiress series, is available for pre-order! An excerpt is available on my website. Due out on April 27, it tells the story of Rosamund Jameson, a milliner who has carved a life for herself despite an impoverished background, and Kevin Radnor, the nephew of the Duke of Hollinburgh who is none too happy to discover his uncle left Rosamund half of his budding enterprise. Of course there is one way to ensure she does not sell out her share or do something else that will muck up his plans--- marry her.

"Hunter skillfully renders the difficult conversations and compromises that are the stuff of real-life romance, showing Kevin and Rosamund learning to make decisions together both as lovers and business partners. Lively scenes featuring Kevin's awful family, as well as a fun, steamy business trip to Paris, balance out the discussions of contracts nicely. . . readers . . .will be rewarded with another smart pairing and a genuinely romantic ending. " Publishers Weekly

SOMETIMES FAMILY ISN'T BLOOD. SOMETIMES IT'S WHO'S THERE WHEN YOU NEED THEM...

Justine Davis presents a brand new series! In the small town of Wild Oak, an unlikely bunch of people become the kind of friends you can trust with your life---and your happiness. First up is a story inspired by a beautiful piece of real life art.

He's spent his life denying what he is. Then he meets the woman who won't let him...

Jake Stone is a carpenter by trade. He rarely surrenders to his artistic urges because his creations never live up to the picture in his mind. Only his work for a children's cancer clinic gives him the peace he is unable to find anywhere else.

Rachel Bennett has one task left to fulfill; a thank you to the artist who created the beautiful sculpture that was the only bright spot in a dark and horrible time. But when she finally finds Jake Stone, nothing goes as planned.

Rachel has given up on love. Jake barely believes in it at all. Can these two battered souls find in each other what neither of them dares wish for?

"A thrilling suspense plot with a believable love story." --Publishers Weekly on FLIGHT

Connie Mann

Have you read BEYOND POWER, book 2 in the Florida Wildlife Warriors series?

"The story of Josh and Delilah has everything a page turner needs, explosive action, murder, friendship and most importantly: romance. Being familiar with the area the story plays in, makes it even easier to get completely lost in the book!" --Kirsten Rippel, Goodreads

"This is my first read by Connie Mann and if this is any indication of her work then it won't be the last. This is an action-fueled adventure ride that totally draws you in from almost the very first page."  --Debbie Caswell, Goodreads

When your heart's involved...
When bush pilot and officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Josh Tanner finds Delilah Atwood deep in the woods without a good explanation, he knows something is very wrong...

All the stakes are raised...                                  
Delilah barely escaped her ultra-fundamental militia family years ago. Now she's back to save her sixteen-year-old sister, and no government man is going to stop her. Josh can't stand by and watch Delilah risk her life, but unless he can get her to trust him, she may end up being the next victim.

You can order your copy HERE.

Laura M. Baird

Excited to share the cover for the upcoming SUMMER HEAT Anthology releasing June 21st. I've joined other Indie Authors and we're bringing the heat with brand new stand-alone novellas. From around the world, you'll love the variety of stories filled with laughter, angst, and sexy romance. Add this to your 'want-to-read' shelf on Goodreads now.

Enjoy a teaser from my story, Kiss Me at Sunset.

-- I inhale a shaky breath as I look down onto his mass of wavy blond hair skimming his shoulders. He begins lifting his head slowly, scanning my torso, lingering on my breasts before peering up at me.

Xander never breaks eye contact as he gently skims his hand up my left leg, resting it on the back of my thigh. The warmth of his touch does more than cause a flutter inside; it heats me up, producing a burn that centers at my sex. My breaths become quick and shallow as I struggle to remain composed. I know my nipples tighten and threaten to slice through the thin material of my shirt. But his gaze never strays as he then lifts the marker, pressing it against my flesh and marking my skin.

"Lucky number seven."

Linda O. Johnston

Linda O. Johnston remains busy writing this year. Two new Harlequin Romantic Suspense books of hers will be published later this year, in August and October--one which is part of her new Shelter of Secrets series, and the other is in the ongoing Colton series for HRS, part of this year's Coltons of Grave Gulch.

Then there's next year's new mystery--more to come about that. Plus, another HRS or two...

Linda enjoys staying busy. She enjoys writing. She loves being interrupted by her dogs, who give her orders. And she is delighted when her new books are published!

So... as Linda says a lot lately, read and enjoy yourself!  And, as always, please stay safe and healthy.

Fresh off the press: My new cover for HOLDING ON, the next installment of the Nugget serious out May 18 and available for pre-order now.

A picturesque California mountain town is the perfect place for fresh air---and fresh starts, especially when it comes to love.
 
One divorce, one mind-blowing kiss with a stranger (code name: Matthew McConaughey), and one year later, Joey Nix desperately needs to find a job in Nugget. It's the only chance she'll have of sharing custody of her sweet little daughter with her soon to be remarried, renowned surgeon ex-husband. Luckily, Joey's qualified to work as an in-home caregiver. Coincidentally, a job offer comes from the afore mentioned unforgettably sexy stranger (real name: Ryder Knight). It's a terrible, irresistible idea . . .
 
Ryder needs help with his ailing, depressed mother, and darn if Joey isn't the best candidate. Good thing he'll be sleeping in his camper, because their chemistry is still crackling. Besides, the loss of his wife and unborn child five years earlier have left Ryder squarely focused on his trucking company---and even that's on shaky ground. Still, Joey knows how to lift his mom's spirits. And his too---despite a troubling secret she's shared with him. But when she asks him to accompany her to her ex's wedding, Ryder "I don't do weddings" Knight will have to do a lot of soul searching. What he discovers just might surprise them both . . .
