Writing research has sent me on many adventures, including to Great Britain, (THE BELTANE ESCAPE) and New Orleans (SPELL FOR SOPHIA). But this month's research will be a deep dive inside one of my most popular characters, Roderick, the sea dragon from THE AMBER ELIXIR. The founders of Goddess Spirit Rising, an international conference in Simi Valley, California, have asked me to embody a water dragon during three rituals over the course of the conference. A blue, rubber dragon mask will obscure most of my face. I will be wearing enough shiny bling to make Roderick, with his underwater treasure hoard, open his great maw in a toothy dragon grin.

I see Roderick's talons all over this invitation. The ancient dragon and his great love, Morainn the sapphire water fairy, want to swim beyond the pages of THE AMBER ELIXIR and star in their own story. Should I take up the challenge? Let me see how two hours in a dragon mask go. I have already warned the Goddess Spirit Rising organizers to check my pockets on the way out. Dragons can be pretty sneaky when it comes to glittery treasure. -- Ariella Moon

Available at Amazon, BN, BAM, IndieBound, and in ebook format for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.

Not even Deborah's mega-watt smile can convince him. But as the sparks between them intensify, Rock realizes that the fire they're feeling could be more than the smoke and mirrors of Hollywood. . . it could be the real thing.

From RWA Hall of Famer and New York Times Bestselling Author Eileen Dreyer comes the next installment in the Drake's Rakes Series, MISS FELICITY'S DILEMMA!!

Available for Pre-Order and On Sale October 8th!!


Miss Felicity Chambers is the new teacher of piano and deportment at Miss Manville's Academy for Superior Girls. There is no reason a duke should contact her. There is certainly no reason she should marry his son. But that is evidently what the duke wants. Felicity should be delighted. But the orphaned schoolteacher has long since stopped believing in fairy tales. If only the duke's son weren't so compelling...


Lord Flint Bracken knows just what is behind the duke's command, and it isn't an attempt to secure a happily-ever-after for his son. The proposal is one of the duke's schemes. Flint has no choice but to cooperate, though, or he risks more than his home. He risks national security. So court a penniless schoolteacher he must. He should be furious. But Felicity Chambers isn't at all what he expected. She might very well be what he wants...

Your September can sizzle with the supernatural romantic-suspense, SOUL KEEPER! Readers are captivated by Luc, a supernatural outcast resigned to being shunned by humans and vampires alike.

"Being truly immortal rather than just exceptionally hard to kill, he'd never thought of himself as someone with a life to live, but rather with an existence to endure."

"If you want an intense, haunting, alternate reality world to visit, then... Yes!!!! If you like heat, not just a whisper or a wisp, but full on blast furnace, then... Yes!!! If you like good vs. evil in its many forms, then.... YES!!!!!" -- Mary B., Goodreads

Kat Martin

Up next for me is my new Romantic Thriller, THE DECEPTION, book two in my Maximum Security series, out September 10th. Thought I'd share part of the glowing review from Publishers Weekly. But first, a little about the book...

In THE DECEPTION, Kate Gallagher is devastated when she learns her sister has been murdered.  Determined to find Chrissy's killer, Kate hires lethal bounty hunter, Hawk Maddox.  Working together, they follow a trail of clues that lead them deep into the city's underbelly.  Though Hawk warns Kate of the danger, nothing he says can convince Kate to walk away.

Publishers Weekly

"Martin immediately begins leading her well-drawn characters through a high-octane plot with hair-raising twists and turns, skillfully dragging red herrings everywhere.  ... Even Martin's most despicable characters are complex, adding to readers' emotional investment. Fans of romantic suspense won't be able to put this book down until the final page is turned, and Martin is likely to recruit thriller readers as well as romance fans with this snappy story."

I hope you'll watch for THE DECEPTION!
