Ask Five with....DELILAH DEVLIN!!!!

Delilah has helped cause a few waves this summer with the release of Wild, Wild Women of the West, an sexy, hot anthology from Kensington Aphrodisia! This author is one talented lady in demand and her star is only going to rise even farther. Sit back and meet....Delilah Devlin: What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about? My latest is a novella entitled A Taste of Honey that is featured in the book Wild, Wild Women of the West (Kensington Aphrodisia, June 2007). The story centers around Honey Cafferty, who lives a happy but precarious existence as a traveling saleswoman, searching for a sense of belonging. From her colorful wagon she brews decoctions to cure ennui, sleeplessness, hysteria—and after a visit from a mysterious Mexican curandera—she believes she’s found the way to improve a man’s libido... The story is light, funny—and very sexy, if I may say so myself! How do your stories come to you? Complete with just the details to fill in, or is it a character

He has only a few weeks left to marry an heiress. Eligible young ladies' mamas and papas will gladly exchange their daughters for his title and all that goes with it, and the fact that he's young and healthy should please the three bride candidates invited to his estate. There was another promise made, however, one that has him out after midnight digging holes in the garden in the rain while his houseguests are snug and dry in their beds. Wrong. The four members of the Ladies Literary Society of London are awake and holding their inaugural meeting in the bedchamber of Miss Sarah Moorehouse. The society is made up of Sarah, her two good friends, Lady Emily Stapleford and La

A Perfect 10: EXIT STRATEGY by Kelley Armstrong

Image
EXIT STRATEGY - Kelley Armstrong A Perfect 10 Bantam Books ISBN: 978-0-553-58819-4 July 2007 Crime Fiction/Thriller The United States and Canada, the Present I didn't expect to like a novel about a hired killer, especially a female one. But Kelley Armstrong pulls off a miracle. Not only did I immediately like the Canadian ex-cop, I even liked her enigmatic mentor in the world of hitmen. Nadia Stafford's past left her with a desperate longing to see justice done. Though that passion is rigidly controlled beneath her cool exterior most of the time, a single episode where that control snapped led to her discharge from the force...and for her family and former friends to desert her. Nadia invested her all -- monetarily and emotionally -- into Red Oak Lodge, a wilderness camp on Ontario's Crescent Lake. Her funds are limited, so from time to time, she takes a commission to solve a problem for a New York mob family, but only if that problem involves one of the bad guys. Nadi

It is about Grace, a schoolteacher who seems to be stuck in a rut with her life. She has a routine and nothing breaks it, she has settled into being who she is though she deperately wants something more. When her cousin Megan brings Chase, Megan's Fiance and his older brother Ethan to visit, all bets are off. Ethan hasn't had to work for a womans attention in a long time so Grace is a challenge he hopes to win- and win over forever. What made you decide to become a writer? I've always journaled. When I was a kid I would make up characters and stories. My mother said I wrote a book when I was little and the school

Another epublisher gone....

Image
In case you haven't heard, Triskelion Publishing has closed its doors. Oddly, it was on my list of popular and safe publishers a few months ago. Remember that post ? Of course, new ones are popping up and only time will tell if they last more than five years. It takes a lot of energy and time to be a publisher. My hats go off to anyone who does try their hand at electronic publishing. I love ebooks and I'm willing to read new publishers, as well new authors. One site I'm keeping my eye on is Tease Publishing , which opens in August. Will be interesting to see what they have to offer and what authors will end up there. My question to you readers...who are your favorite ebook authors? Posted by (and the opinion of) PattiF
