1. Tell us about WICKED NIGHTS. Wicked Nights is the story of Zacharel, the new leader of the Army of Disgrace—heavenly warriors in danger of falling from grace—and Annabelle, a human who has spent the last four years locked inside an institution for the criminally insane.   He doesn’t have time for a distraction, but Annabelle fascinates him in a way nothing else ever has.   Zacharel decides he wants her—but so does the demon chasing her. 2.       What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?   I love to tinker with the scenes and the sentences and if I change one word, just one, and someone reads the old version, I am horrified.   3.       What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?   It can’t just be about me and what I want (though it probably should be!).   I have to stay true to the characters. 4.       Besides writing, what other interests do you have?   I love to read, I love to listen to my iPod (I’ve

BIG SKY COUNTRY - Linda Lael Miller Big Sky Series , Book 1 HQN ISBN-13: 978-0-373-77643-6 June 2012 Contemporary Romance Parable, Montana – Present Day Sheriff Slade Barlow works hard, doesn't need much to make him happy, and keeps the peace in Parable. He's been looking at a ranch on the outskirts of town, thinking he might have enough money saved up to put an offer in. Even though he likes his job as a lawman, all he ever wanted to do was raise horses and work a ranch. His mother, Callie, struggled while he was growing up; there were times they barely had enough to eat or new clothes to wear, but still, they managed. They lived in an old run down trailer on the outskirts of town, behind Callie's Curly-Burly hair salon. It wasn't fancy, but it was home. Not like the large and opulent Whisper Creek Ranch, where Slade's biological father ran one of the largest cattle spreads in the county. Slade has resented his father all his life. John Carmody never

SCANDAL WEARS SATIN by Loretta Chase Blurb: A blue-eyed innocent on the outside and a shark on the inside, dressmaker Sophy Noirot could sell sand to Bedouins. Selling Maison Noirot's beautiful designs to aristocratic ladies is a little harder, especially since a recent family scandal has made an enemy of one of society's fashion leaders.

But when Longmore's sister, Noirot's wealthiest, favorite customer, runs away, Sophy can't let him bumble after her on his own. In hot pursuit with the one man who tempts her beyond reason, she finds desire has never slipped on so smoothly . . . Easy to enter... Just post once and I'll put you in t

Q&A with Lina Gardiner!!

          1. Tell us about your newest release. My newest release is a paranormal romance (shape-shifter spy novel). I have an award winning vampire series, but I think Black Moon Awakening is my most creative book yet. While set today in our normal world, there are societies of wolves and Therians living and hiding in plain sight. It was interesting to develop these societies to make the story believable. The Therian world was especially fun to create. 2. Can you tell us a little about your favorite scene in the story? I think my favorite scene is when Jude Black, Therian operative, brings Raven Hawkes (werewolf arch enemy) into his city that is supposed to be hidden from the outside. 3. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?   I think my quirk may be similar to other writers. During most of my process, I see the book running like a movie in my head and I just write down what my characters are doing. Sometimes t

Brenda Novak – Blood In, Blood Out Saturday Afternoon As he sat in the run-down bar, brooding over a glass of whiskey, Rex McCready decided that his life was a series of battles in a war that would never end, and he wasn’t on the winning side very often. “Hey, thought I’d find you here.” His best friend, former cell mate and current business partner in Bodyguards R Us, Virgil Skinner, slid onto the bar stool next to him. “What happened this time?” Virgil wanted to know. “The same thing that happens every time,” he grumbled. He and Laurel Hodges, Virgil’s sister, just couldn’t get along. They loved each other, but they were both too damaged to make the relationship work, and the stress of having recently entered WITSEC—the witness protection program—together with Virgil and his wife, Peyton, only made matters worse. Purchase LOVE IS MURDER : from Amazon  From B & N From BAM  Brenda Novak's bio: “When I first got the idea to become a novelist,
