Join us June 1, 2011 from 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM Eastern Time as Deborah Cooke chats with us about DARKFIRE KISS. Here is a blurb: Rafferty Powell has exchanged challenge coins with his arch-nemesis Magnus Montmorency, and their next battle will be their last. But Rafferty never expected to meet a woman whose desire for Magnus’ downfall matches his own—and whose presence sparks Rafferty’s long-awaited firestorm. Since facing her own mortality, investigative reporter Melissa Smith has resolved to live without fear. She’s determined to make the seemingly untouchable Magnus pay for his role in ending her friend’s life – no matter the price to herself. When her quest entwines with Rafferty’s, Melissa finds herself risking more than she ever thought possible. Because the heat between them unleashes the darkfire—an awesome force of Pyr legend, one that won’t be sated until everything they know has been tested and remade.     To enter the chat room, click the link below and cho

After all, Sam, a Seattle Chinooks hockey star, is the sexy bachelor who dates reed-thin models. Their son, Conner, is the only tie that binds them together now.

At a wedding, Sam spots Autumn, and surprisingly, his interest in her rises again. Without understanding why, he wants to know more about the mother of his son.

1.Tell us about your newest release. This story was so much fun to write. It has big bad warriors, castles, demons, and swords. The foundation for the story is Michael the Archangel has a secret clan of warriors. Faelan is the mightiest warrior of his time, but he gets trapped in a time vault while trying to save the world from a vile demon. Bree is a historian who feels more like Indiana Jones. When she finds a treasure map in the old house she’s inherited, she’s expecting anything but the Scottish warrior who comes leaping out of his tomb at her. Click here to read the excerpt for Awaken the Highland Warrior The attraction between Faelan and Bree is instantaneous, and there is a good reason for that, but they also have to deal with a lot of frustration because they’re from such different times. Faelan can’t fathom a female being so bold and rash. The woman attracts danger like a bloody magnet. And she won’t let him protect her; he, a renowned warrior since before she was born.
