LOVE WILL FIND YOU

After his father’s heart attack, Australian Football League player Tyson Gaspaldi takes his parents on holiday to a small place at the New South Wales coast.

One morning, following a surfing session, he comes across a crying woman on the beach. Everything about her intrigues him, and he can’t walk away. She’s not only sexy and humble, but, as he soon finds out, vulnerable as well.

It’s only been a few months since Katie Cassidy lost her sister in a car accident.

Still overwhelmed by the loss, a chance encounter on the beach with an attractive stranger awakens unexpected emotions inside her. She’s instantly drawn to his caring nature, but also his looks.

However, Tyson’s past quickly catches up with them, causing Katie’s childhood demons to return, and the road to romance becomes anything but smooth.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to share! This is from my newest Apocalyptic title: An Apocalyptic Need:

She might be the enemy. He might have to take her down. But all he really wants to do is make slow, sweet love to her.

Grimm Forbes has been captured by sexy spaceship Captain Cari Pascale and turned into her sex vassal. But, as alliances conspire to take down his old friends at the Authority, Grimm worries that the woman who ignites his sexual fantasies might be at the epicenter of the treachery. It's possible he'll have to make a choice between his friends and the woman he wants in his bed. He only prays he has the strength to make the right decision, because the consequences of making the wrong one will be apocalyptic.

NATURALLY YOURS by Adele Downs

Who will save a man who saves the world?

Paramedic Mickey Kendall hasn’t slept a full night since his return from Iraq. He rescues victims by day and protects the innocent after dark. Mickey doesn’t do it for glory; he wants absolution, not admiration. He lives by the rule: No personal contact after a rescue. That code meets the ultimate test when Mickey saves a child’s life on a roadside and declines the parents’ invitation to dinner at their upscale restaurant.

Master chef Amanda Greer lives by the principle that delicious food and good company build bridges. When she learns Mickey has refused her business partners’ hospitality, she persuades him to change his mind. The handsome paramedic visits her restaurant and Amanda joins him at his table. Their unexpected chemistry turns kinetic and leads to a passionate kiss.

In Amanda’s arms, Mickey finds relief from the stressors that haunt him, but resists falling in love. When Amanda challenges him to face his demons and accept the love she offers, Mickey arrives at a crossroad. The war-weary paramedic must first save himself to claim the woman who reignites his passion for living and revives his wounded heart.

Alchemy xii - New Year's Eve
by Tamsin Flowers

No one could ever accuse Harry Lomax of being a Dom's Dom. Sometimes he even forgets to make his submissives call him "Sir". But he is the charismatic Prince of Kink at Chicago's most secretive and exclusive sex club, where he runs Alchemy xii, the club's prestigious year-long training program for would-be subs.

When Harry spots Olivia Roux across a crowded floor, he's under no illusions as to what she is and what she isn't. A blond, Amazonian goddess, Olivia's no ingénue. She's a woman of the world whom he suspects might have a thing for kink, if only she realized it. One thing is for certain—Olivia is nobody's bitch.

JUST ONE LOOK
by Joan Reeves

Seduction and sex can be pretty funny when both sides play dirty!

What would you do if the gynecologist subbing for your regular doctor turned out to be your old high school crush? Successful psychologist Dr. Jennifer Monroe does what any normal, well-adjusted woman would do. She makes an excuse to send the doctor and nurse from the room, dives into her clothes, and flees!

Unfortunately, her running away makes conscientious Dr. Matt Penrose conclude she has some kind of sexual hangup. For her health, he's determined to refer her to another doctor, but she refuses to take his calls. He's determined to talk to her so he can suggest counseling for what he thinks are emotional problems.

Jennifer plans to never see him again. Dallas is a big city. What are the odds that she'll ever run into him? Even money when Fate lends a hand.

When Jennifer and Matt meet at a charity gala, he earnestly urges her to seek professional help. Jennifer is incensed that he thinks she's some frigid old maid--and that he doesn't remember her from high school.

A flood of resentment washes away her common sense, fueling her determination to teach him a lesson he won't soon forget. You know what they say about payback!

Kids play doctor, but these doctors play seduction games, and they're playing for keeps. Will Matt recognize Jennifer? Will Jennifer lure him into her bed? This payback is smoking hot!

A COWBOY'S KISS IN WYOMING
by E. Ayers

Chessie Chesterfield is from North Carolina. She wears heels, not boots, and she doesn't own jeans. She's scared of horses, and all she wants is to get back on the road. So why is she falling in love with an ex-bull rider? Could the man of her dreams be a cowboy?

Derrick McCullough's days of bull riding are over, along with his marriage and his days of prescription drug usage. He's succumbed to the idea of taking over the family ranch and has worked hard to turn his life around. The last thing he needs is the cutest little filly in a pair of heels who talks with a heavy North Carolinian accent.

A little playful teasing between the two re-injures the leg that took him away from the sport of bull riding. The injury sends him to the hospital for more surgery. Unsure if he'll ever be able to ride a horse again, he feels his life has crashed one more time. To his surprise, the last thing he wants to do is say goodbye to Chessie Chesterfield.

Can knowing someone for only a few days be enough to truly know them? Chessie isn't into settling down and loves her nomadic lifestyle. But Derrick stole her heart, and she wants it back. Confident, cocky, handsome, and a gentleman, Derick has all the right qualities along with that big family who welcomed her. Does she dare return to the Lazy A + 8 ranch?

Detour Ahead (Rider Up, Book Four)

Threatened race horses, city slicker attorney, sexy California wrangler—what can possibly go wrong?

Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R&R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.

Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.

The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her - like he does his horses - before she flees in panic?
