Having gained one very annoying but cute teen-aged demon boy in Levi when she accidentally opened a portal to the demon universe, Kenzie is torn between envy (which Levi feeds on) and attraction. Everybody else sees Levi as an amiable, responsible teen-aged boy, but Kenzie can see him as the demon he is, and it’s driving her crazy. Achieving success in closing the portal to the demon world only by driving the family minivan through the kitchen, thereby destroying both, earned her an extremely long, and to Kenzie, unfair punishment. Now it seems that another portal has opened, and Kenzie must figure out where it is and how to close it without much input from Levi, who is not allowed to tell her anything. Kenzie doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Levi or knock him through the port

Q&A with Alannah Lynne!!!!

Image
Today marks the release of debut author Alannah Lynne's first book. Here's a blurb about Reaction Time: Nikki Kincaid carries her smart mouth and in-your-face attitude like other women carry mace. However, that bad attitude and razor sharp tongue aren’t wielded on everyone; they’re reserved specifically for Adam Guthrie. With nothing more than a heated visual stroke, her body’s reaction time to Adam is quicker than her reaction time at the starting line of a race. And that out-of-control response terrifies her because Nikki is always in control. When someone starts sending her threatening letters, her brother and crew chief, Nate, asks his good friend, Adam, to help protect Nikki. And Adam jumps at the chance. For the past year and a half he’s been watching Nikki, analyzing her body language and cutting remarks, and has come to the conclusion she’s a sexual submissive. Spending five days in close quarters with her is the opportunity he’s been waiting for. He knows there’s a

Q&A with Beth Kery!

Image
Meet Beth Kery! Her newest, WICKED BURN, is currently in stores. You can read more about WICKED BURN by clicking here and you can learn more about Beth by going to her website at www.bethkery.com 1. Tell us about your newest release. WICKED BURN is sort of a paradox, because when you first start reading it, you might think it’s just this scorching hot erotic-romance. But the intensely intimate sex right off the bat is there for a reason–it’s crucial because it’s what cuts through Niall’s (my heroine's) numbness after a terrible personal tragedy. The fact that Vic doesn't just creep into her world, but explodes into it, is about Vic’s dominant character, but also Niall’s tragic history. WICKED BURN is a deeply romantic story between two people who have been scarred in different ways. Vic is the brooding, intellectual playwright and also the dead-sexy cowboy. I couldn't resist the contrast. What I love about Vic is that even though he makes his living through words, he’s

HAVE YOURSELF A NAUGHTY LITTLE SANTA – Karin Tabke Pocket Star ISBN-13: 978-1-4165-6458-4 November 2008 Contemporary Romance Evergreen, California – Present Day Ricco Maza is a complicated man with a lot of family drama in his life. He is a policeman, and every year at Christmas, he returns home to Evergreen to be with his family.

After his mother was raped, they left their town with no money and found their way to Evergreen, where people accepted and cared for them and took them in with love and friendship.
