A man with a secret… A woman with a plan

 
Just south of Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll find a little ranch where the hot, toned cowboys are ready and eager to take it all off and make your naughtiest fantasies come true...
 
Satisfaction is the name of the game at the Double S Ranch, where the men are more than willing to play. They come from all walks of life, and each has their own reason for dancing for a lady’s pleasure.

The Romance Author with the Flashlight~~Kathryn Hills

 


The Romance Author with the Flashlight

 KathyHillsblogsmall.jpg (300×200)

It’s true. I’m a ghost hunter. But sometimes I wonder, who is hunting who? Spirits often sneak up on me. Don’t laugh. I find them at the strangest times and in odd places. Even when I’m not holding my favorite ghost-hunter flashlight. They surprise me, so I think it’s only fair they end up in a book.

It was a cold December day when I first visited the house that inspired Haunting Highland House. It’s not a spooky place. In fact, it’s quite lovely. On that particular day it was decorated for the Christmas holiday, so not scary at all. But looking up from a visitor’s parking lot, I had to ask the person I was with, “Is this place haunted?” The impression was instantaneous. Like a clap of thunder, it shocked me. I’d not expected to encounter ghosts.

It happens to me all the time. Somehow “knowing” or “feeling” a place has spirit energy. It’s probably happened to many of you. I’ve tried to capture that feeling on page one when my heroine, Samantha Merrill, first arrives at Highland House.

 Samantha Merrill stared in disbelief at the scene outside her car...

EVERYONE KNOWS MONSTERS EXIST.

BUT SHE NEVER EXPECTED TO BE ONE OF THEM…

 

Thanks to her great- great-grandmother, loner Claire Sommers’ DNA results are succubus positive. To make matters worse, her college is forcing her into the Supernatural program. The last place she wants to be is in a room filled with ferals, vampires, and other monsters from her nightmares. The absolute worst thing she can imagine? Getting hit with her first fervor in the middle of said classroom. Especially in front of the new Alpha of the Red Crescent pack, Lucas Masters.

Witches and Mortals...Sabrina York

 

 

Trickery by Sabrina York

 Trickeryweb.jpg (150×225)

Though seducing a mortal is expressly forbidden, novice witch Willow Ostreth wants Austin. Bad. Unbeknownst to Willow, Austin—the glorious, delicious specimen who makes her heart pound and her body weep—is no mere mortal. He’s really Damien DeWinter, a powerful warlock, a man determined to lure Willow—and bind her—to his bed.

When the luscious Willow breaks the rules and uses her magic to ensnare him, Damien—rebel, renegade, outcast from the Witching World—figures he has carte blanche to pursue her and seduce her using any means possible. And his arsenal is vast.

What neither of them realizes as they tempt and torment each other with pleasure is that there’s a greater magic at work here. One that could bind them together, forever.

☆¸.•*¨*★☆#COVERREVEAL☆¸.•*¨*★☆

This playboy has met his match, and she's organized...

 
After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.
 
Cade O'Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he's struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she's working for his family's clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery--and her too-guarded heart--that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .

SUNRISE CROSSING

RETURN TO PEACEFUL CROSSROADS, TEXAS, WHERE COMMUNITY COMES FIRST AND LOVE THRIVES IN THE UNLIKELIEST PLACES

“Thomas (Rustler’s Moon) does an amazing job of creating and connecting multiple story lines. This tale will grab readers, who will fall in love with the main characters and be just as enamored of the others.      

Library Journal STARRED review for Lone Heart Pass

SUNRISE CROSSING, the fourth title in the six-book Ransom Canyon series by New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jodi Thomas. The sweeping drama, and the story of a rugged hero and mysterious heroine set against the beautiful Texas landscape,

will delight fans of Western romance.

As he rebuilds an old house, he finally has a sense of stability, but he can't stop thinking of himself as just an ex-con. Until one night, he finds a mysterious dark-haired beauty hiding in his loft. But who is she, and what secret is she protecting?

Hi there!

I have a new Indie romance release coming out on 8/2 titled Winter's Path. It's the follow-up to Summer's Road, which released in April. The book is a stand-alone with a HEA, featuring different characters.  Check it out!

★☆Winter's Path★☆

My name is Matt Holcomb, and I'm the good guy. The boy next door. I'm the safe bet and I always do the right thing. Then one night two years ago, I made a terrible mistake that caused irreparable damage, and the guilt is killing me. If I'm ever to make the leap and find love again, the woman would have to be perfect. She can't disrupt my carefully constructed control. I met my best friend Jenny Winter as a teenager and have loved her ever since. She's gorgeous and talented. Her voice could make angels weep. Yet she chose someone else and I swore I'd never fall for her again. Until something happens between us and passion ignites. But she's not the right woman for me, and crossing the line with her would not only change everything, it'll take away the only good thing I have left.  *A stand-alone novel with a HEA*
