Thanks for the opportunity to share!

He’s an elite vampire from a distant planet…an Alpha of the Blood.
But he’s no match for one spunky and opinionated Earth woman!

The Alphas of the Blood are an elite, alien race of vampires. They escaped a devastated planet that was overrun with plague-infected beasts and came to Earth for a chance at a new life…a new beginning. The change is bitter-sweet for Zeenon Akba, who lost much of his family in the plague wars and fears his only brother might have carried the infection to Earth with him. But when Zee stumbles upon a pretty human female being stalked by an infected, he’s determined to help her, even if it means killing his own brother. Aware of their many differences and the necessity of finding a blood slave to be his mate, Zee doesn’t intend to lose his heart to pretty and spunky Brooke Carlin. So why can’t he get her out of his mind?

The Heist

A heist? A murder? It’s villain’s choice.

Furious her favorite trio of priceless impressionist paintings has been stolen from its traveling exhibit on her watch, Kara is determined to save not only the paintings, but her future in the art world. She’ll stop at nothing to entrap the thief.

Ted Springs knows the underbelly of the criminal world a little closer than he might like—but he’s turned it to good advantage, first as a police officer, and now as detective for the Upper Midwest Arts Council. His job? To guarantee the security of the valuable paintings in the Council’s traveling exhibits.

Heat sizzles when Ted and Kara collide—can they work together, before it’s too late?

Thank you for letting me share the blurb for my romance novella:

First comes love, then comes marriage and then comes happily-ever-after. That's the way Julie always thought it would be.
She never dreamed she'd feel like Cinderella being rescued by Prince Charming. She never dreamed she wouldn't like it.

Julie and Jack are over-the-moon in love, but with their soon-to-be mothers-in-law battling for influence over the wedding plans they fight to keep the peace.
When their mothers reveal a stunning secret from the past, Jack and Julie realize their differences about the wedding venue is not their only difference.
They need to re-think their wedding. Will they or won’t they say I do?

Enjoy the romance!

This blurb is from ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID, book three of my Left at the Altar series:

Dani Dipietro has always considered herself an ugly duckling in a family of swans. She's the bridesmaid her friends count on, but never the woman any man wants for his bride. So she plays the funny girl and guards her emotions, and her secrets, closely.

When Zach Morrison was dumped at his wedding, Dani was there to help him through the humiliation. A year later they meet again and once more Zach needs her help. To fend off the unwanted attentions of his former fiancé, he asks Dani to pretend to be his girlfriend. They play their roles a little too well, and make believe turns into reality. But their relationship comes crashing down around them when Zach's trust issues cause him to accuse Dani of cheating. Telling the truth means that Dani will betray a friend, something she will never do. But keeping her secrets means she may be destined to remain a bridesmaid forever.

Thank you!

Here's the back cover blurb from my novella, An Afternoon Tryst written under the penname Modeska Rose. It's an erotic short story that has a wonderful twist.

Pretty, curly-headed Marissa is struggling in her five-year marriage. Her husband seems to have pulled away and the close intimacy they used to share has gone. When she meets Cole, a tall, handsome construction worker in the fruit department of their local grocery store, she is at once mesmerized and this encounter leads to the beginning of a steamy afternoon affair where it seems he fulfills all of her desires with hot, steamy sex and a rose-petaled bubble bath.

Marissa craves the excitement and closeness that she used to share with her husband, but can’t let go of Cole who treats her like a rare and precious jewel, giving her everything her marriage is lacking. As she struggles to get through each day, anticipating their next tryst, Marissa knows that she must resolve this dilemma, but the attraction she feels for Cole draws her back again and again.

Can Marissa find a way to get past the transgression of having an affair? Is her love for her husband strong enough to help her find a way to make the changes necessary to once again find the love and intimacy she longs for?
