HIS CONQUEST by Diana Cosby Blurb: THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD SAVE HER Linet Dancort will not be sold. But that's essentially what her brother intends to do—to trade her like so much chattel to widen his already vast scope of influence. Linet will seize any opportunity to escape her fate—and opportunity comes in the form of a rebel prisoner locked in her brother's dungeon, predatory and fearsome, and sentenced to hang in the morning. WOULD FIRST NEED SAVING HIMSELF Seathan MacGruder, Earl of Grey, is not unused to cheating death. But even this legendary Scottish warrior is surprised when a beautiful Englishwoman creeps to his cell and offers him his freedom. What Linet wants in exchange, though—safe passage to the Highlands—is a steep price to pay. For the only thing more dangerous than the journey through embattled Scotland is the desire that smolders between these two fugitives the first time they touch . . . **** Since we're on Thanksgiving themes this week

JEWELED by Anya Bast Out now! Blurb: Defined by magic. Ruled by desire. In the Court of Edaeii, magic-imbued Evangeline is rewarded for her gift in manipulating emotion with a sapphire stone set into the perfect curve of her lower back. Her greatest rival in the royal court is the enigmatic Anatol, instilled with the power of illusion. He may better her in magic, but he is her absolute equal in passion. They share something else—they’re both targets of low-born revolutionaries bent on overthrowing the palace of the privileged few. Rescued from the mobs by Gregorio, the brilliant revolutionary mastermind, they’re given sanctuary. But in this warm refuge, Evangeline soon finds herself torn between the magic of one man she has always desired, and the excitingly new and radical moves of another. For her, there is only one choice. Evangeline, Anatol and Gregorio come together as one to explore the possibilities of love beyond reason, and to indulge in pleasure without limits.

Readers often ask where I get my ideas. And I've tried to figure this out myself. I suppose ideas just arrive in my mind in the same way the average person decides what to wear each morning. This skirt with that sweater just seems like a good idea. Something to try on and see if it fits, if it works well. I also have life experience to draw from. Meaning all those jobs I had early on which were so awful that they've turned into humorous stories. This is most evident in A Clause for Murder where my main character Betsy Ross sells insurance. Yes, I too sold insurance. Life, health, disability, homeowners, and car insurance. And though I learned the business, I never loved the work. Because I knew I wanted to write. I also worked in retail stores, as a teacher, in the New York textile industry, and a number of other places such as the US House of Representatives in Washington for a congressman. Eventually, everything ends up in my fiction books in some form or another. So

1. Tell us about your newest release.   Sasha's Calling, an erotic space opera, is our newest release with Loose Id. Blurb: Nothing can stop freelance thief Sasha Smirnov from saving her planet -- except, Dirk, the gorgeous ambassador with polychrome eyes. Is it lust or designer pheromones? He is hot, too hot to resist -- or forget. A single, sizzling kiss burns him into her memory, and her body, but she can't afford to stop for passion, let alone love. Sasha needs to get as far away from Dirk as possible and take the classified data she stole with her. So she stows away on a ship outward bound, only to discover Dirk's the pilot. Now she can't get away from him, or the system, but he will let her into his bed... 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story?   That would have to be the scene where Dirk saves Sasha from a very nasty character while in the bowels of The Rock, a planet which is part of a loose association of planetoids calle

DEVIL AT MIDNIGHT – Emma Holly A Novel of the Upyr A Perfect 10 Signet Eclipse ISBN: 978-0-425-23781-6 November 2010 Paranormal Romance 1950 Ohio and 1462 Sweden Recently transferred to Lakeview High, Grace Gladwell has pretty much given up on having someone to call a friend. Moving from town to town, her father's strictness and daily use of alcohol pretty much ruin any chance of getting close to someone...though for the past few months, she has been spending time getting to know Johnny, the high school football jock. Nervous when people get too close, Grace shuns a goodnight kiss when the couple leaves a drive-in movie. She's afraid of what her father may do if he sees them even touching. But Johnny convinces Grace that her father is surely asleep and will never notice a thing; just this once she gives in to her need to feel cared for. Unfortunately for Grace, her father does see, reaching his own conclusions. Within seconds of getting into the house, her father sl

RUNNING HOT by Jayne Ann Krentz Mass Paperback Blurb: Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she's got zero field experience. She's from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She's a librarian, for heaven's sake. As for Grace, she's not expecting much either from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn't so good with a gun. Nice résumé for a bodyguard . . . But even before they reach their hotel in Maui—where they'll be posing as honeymooners—Grace and Luther feel the electric charge between them. Problem is, they need to remain vigilant day and night, because it soon becomes clear there's more going on here. Rogue sensitives—operatives for the underground group Nightshade—are pouring into the luxury resort like there's a convention. Grace recognizes those dark spikes in their auras. S

1. Tell us about your newest release. DEADLY INTENT is book four of my acclaimed Mindhunters series. The books are loosely connected, involving characters who work for the same forensics firm that consult with law enforcement on high profile crimes. In this story, forensic linguist Macy Reid and fellow investigator Kellan Burke are paired up to track an eleven-year-old girl who has been kidnapped--for the second time. 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? There were a few of them :) Kell was a fun hero to write. He spends more time than he should trying to provoke a reaction from Macy. In one scene, they are working together in her room after 'lifting' a file from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation officers that they're working with. When one of the CBI agents knocks at Macy's door, she silently orders Kell into the bathroom. He refuses to go. She manages to...ah...gain his cooperation, and her efforts bring a smile every time I read
