FOREVER (Jeffery and Letitzia's Story)
A River City Novel
by E. Ayers

When Letitzia Sorrentino’s father dies, she’s left with her dad’s construction company, but she really wants to be a developer. Family infighting gives her the chance to break out on her own, except she needs more money, and Jeffery Lister has exactly what she wants.

Jeffery Lister is an obstetrician with an understaffed, time-consuming practice. He doesn’t look at women like other men, until he sees Letitzia.

Letitzia wants a no strings attached relationship. She has her own agenda, and is busy building a new development company. She needs Jeffery Lister’s money, but she doesn’t want his heart, and she refuses to open her own. A hardhat world of steel beams and dirt has given her a tough, foul-mouthed exterior, but under all of it, she’s very much a passionate woman, and it shows in everything she does. To her life is a game, and winning is everything. If you don’t play, you automatically lose.

Jeffery Lister is a doctor and it’s his passion. He’d love to have a wife and children, but he doesn’t have time for them, and he knows it. Letitzia awakens something inside of him and he sees through Letitzia’s hard façade. But getting her to admit that the sparks that fly between them is more than physical is going to a lot of patience.

Can two very strong, independent people with busy schedules ever admit to loving each other, especially when one has had her heart broken and is determined never to allow that to happen again?

Loving Leonardo - The Quest by Rose Anderson. http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B004XDGWL6 A scorching polyamorous love story set in the Victorian era.
**********************************************************
Art Historian Nicolas Halstead never could have imagined a book Leonardo da Vinci created for his lover Salai existed, let alone lead to subtle declarations of love worked into da Vinci masterpieces. Nor did he ever picture himself a married man in a polyamorous relationship.

Happy and content, lovers Nicolas, Ellie, and Luca embark on a quest to learn all they can about the greatest mind of the Renaissance. But their world takes a devastating and deadly turn that sends Nicolas into the seedy deviant underworld of Victorian London. It soon becomes clear that Conte Acario Bruno lives, and the madman wants far more than Leonardo’s book. He wants Nicolas dead and Luca for himself.

What the Duke Wants by Amy Quinton
www.amyquinton.net
http://amyquinton.net/published-works/

England 1814: Upstanding duke desperately seeks accident-prone wife from trade…

She is from trade. He is a duke and an agent for the crown with a name to restore and a mystery to solve.

Miss Grace (ha!) Radclyffe is an oftentimes hilariously clumsy, 20-year-old orphan biding her time living with her uncle until she is old enough to come into her small inheritance. Much to her aunt’s chagrin:

She isn’t: Reserved – not with her shocking! tendency to befriend the servants…, Sophisticated – highly overrated if one cannot run around barefoot outside…, or Graceful – she once flung her dinner into a duke’s face… on accident, of course.

But she is: Practical – owning a fashion house is in her future; unless someone foils her plans… and In love… maybe… perhaps… possibly…

The Duke of Stonebridge is a man with a tragic past. His father died mysteriously when he was 12 years old amid speculation that the old duke was ‘involved’ with another man. He must restore his family name, but on the eve of his engagement to the perfect debutante, he meets his betrothed’s cousin, and his world is turned inside out… No matter:

He is always: Logical – men who follow their hearts and not their heads are foolish… and Reserved – his private life is nobody’s business but his own…

And he isn’t: Impulsive – it always leads to trouble…, Charming – that’s his best friend, the Marquess of Dansbury’s, area of expertise…, or In love… maybe… perhaps… possibly…

Can he have what he wants and remain respectable? Can she trust him to be the man she needs?

The Mad Monk's Treasure

The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends—a heretic Spanish priest’s gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider.

When Erin, a quiet history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?

Just how far will Erin go to find the treasure and discover what she’s really made of?

My latest indie, THE KILT COMPLEX, sequel to NEVADA HIGHLANDER:

 
Scottish high crimes and sexy misdemeanors …

The Kilt Complex finds former state trooper Alex Dominguez out of his element—on the shore of a distant sea, far from the comfort of his Nevada mountains, guilt-plagued for rejecting the bed of his handsome lover. Castle laird Rory, whose life mantra has always been cum and go, is uncharacteristically flustered by his own deepening feelings for dark-eyed Alex.

The singular act of Alex’s moving out of the castle seems to spark both men to come to terms with their intense love affair. Can each of them overcome deep-seated guilt and build a solid relationship on the hot coals of desire?

Tracking the story of a lost dog, the men become enmeshed in a deadly chain of events. From the perilous cliffs on the North Sea to the grounds of the Scottish Parliament, and from the luxury of a millionaire’s digs to the rude oak barrels of a native fisherman, Rory and Alex find they must finally confront their complex feelings for each other in order to survive the trap of a killer.

From the first Flagman’s Folly book, A Rancher’s Pride by Barbara White Daille:

His Whole World Is In Her Hands

Sam Robertson’s life just changed. In one short day, he found out that he’s a daddy; that his beautiful little girl, Becky, is deaf; and that her aunt, sign language teacher Kayla Ward, intends to fight him for custody.

There are plenty of reasons Sam shouldn’t fall for Kayla. A city girl like her has no place on his ranch, particularly when she’s his ex-wife’s gorgeous sister. But thanks to the judge’s orders, Sam’s spending a lot of time with Kayla, trying to give Becky the stable home she’s never known.

Despite their ongoing custody battle, Sam and Kayla’s love for Becky brings them closer than they ever expected, and Sam knows that no matter who wins in court, he could still lose—Kayla or his daughter.

Hot Irish Lass by Jennifer Saints

The Harder the Bachelor...the Faster he Falls
James Weldon likes fast rides, wild women, and to party hard—they go a long way to help him forget the premonition curse he is under. He’s a tried and true bachelor who’s not about to lose his Free Bird kahunas like his brothers. He’s been on a hiatus helping his father after the old man’s brush with death. But his plans to get back into the game at a blow-out St. Patrick’s Day party go awry. James not only can’t find his bachelor’s groove because a certain Irish lass by the name of Cierra Weldon has him off kilter, but he gets hijacked from his Savannah home to Manhattan by his brother’s top security investigator. They want him to determine if that Irish Lass has ties to terrorists. James knows Cierra is a lot of things, perfect being one of them, but she is not a terrorist. That doesn’t mean she isn’t being used by one. Her association to billionaire Sheik Hassan al Zayed puts her under suspicion.

The moment James hits New York and connects with Cierra, a whirlwind of events unfold-- one of them being a premonition about Cierra. He fears for her life and finds himself sacrificing everything to keep her safe. Even his heart that she somehow managed to steal when he wasn’t looking.

Horses are Cierra Weldon’s life. She may have grown up privileged in a castle-like estate in Ireland, but life hasn’t been necessarily easy. When she was sixteen, her parents were killed in a car accident. She took over running her father’s racing and stud farm then and now, after eight years, she is looking to expand by establishing a breeding and training farm in the United States—mainly to escape her FOUR overbearing, overprotective brothers. She hasn’t found the right place. Her current troubles started when she told Hassan she wasn’t interested in his gilded cage. She was stalked, attacked, and now her prized racehorse in Ireland has been stolen. She’s sure Hassan’s behind it, trying to show her how much she needs him.

She concocts a fake engagement with James, hoping Hassan will see she’s taken, and “miraculously find” her stolen horse for her.

James shows up. Not only does her world go to hell in a handbasket, but her heart falls hard for a man who thinks commitment is a prison sentence.

They say life can change in a blink of an eye. What can happen in seventy-two http://www.amazon.com/Irish-Lass-Weldon-Brothers-Book-ebook/dp/B00RUE8B00/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1423675927&sr=8-1&keywords=hot+irish+lasshours?

From Dirty Rotten Vampires Book 2 -Love Me Madly

With one undead and the other full of fire, they had two choices—fight dirty and love madly.

Split (Sophronius) Kryder didn’t enjoy hunting demon mixed vampires, hell, his daughter is one. Drawn back into the battle for vampire supremacy, he needs a new partner. The council tossed the name Tang into the pot so Split figured the vamp must be good. Turns out Tang Odette has curves and legs that go on, and on. A maddening inferno of desire ensues wreaking havoc on his world and to possess her Split plans to fight dirty…and win.

The new slayer assigned to Tangerine Odette is an ancient, chauvinistic, and cold-ass vampire she plans to ditch immediately. His superior attitude drives her crazy. Didn’t help any that each time she’s near him, her body heats up more than a pit in hell. Maybe if she gives the old jackass a taste of what he pines for, he’ll whimper away into a corner and leave her to fight.

Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Winning story about hope, love and survival February 27, 2014
by Judith Audevard
So nice to read a book where the heroine is treated kindly, has special loves and successfully survives life traumas. I loved that everything about Grace Meredith and her surroundings were clearly described. From her early college days to becoming a mature woman, the reader is kept involved and is pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
She Didn’t Say No is narrated and produced by Julie Sears, professional voiceover artist and narrator, residing in California, and co-owner of Sears Voices.

DREAM SEQUENCE (Dream Series, books 1-3):

Sara Barnes thought her life was perfectly ordinary – until the night she began stepping into other people’s dreams.
Follow Sara as she learns to cope with this extraordinary gift (or curse) in the first three books of the Dream Series:

DREAM STUDENT
It’s bad enough that, thanks to her supernatural talent, Sara is learning more than she ever needed to know about her friends and classmates, watching their most secret fantasies whether she wants to or not. Much worse are the other dreams, the ones she sees nearly every night, featuring a strange, terrifying man who commits unspeakable crimes. Now Sara wonders if she’s the only witness to a serial killer – and the only one who knows when and where he’s going to strike next.

DREAM DOCTOR
Medical school and life as a newlywed would be enough by themselves for anybody to handle. But Sara’s got another problem – her dreams have started up again. Almost everyone at the medical school is dreaming about the death of the school’s least popular teacher, Dr. Morris, and once again, Sara finds herself in the role of unwilling witness to a murder before it happens. But this time, there are too many suspects to count, and it doesn’t help matters that she hates Dr. Morris every bit as much as any of his would-be murderers do.

DREAM CHILD
Sara thought she had made peace with her dreaming talent, but she’s got a surprise coming: her four-year-old daughter has inherited it, too. Unraveling a mystery with lives on the line is difficult enough under the best of circumstances. But when Sara has to view all the evidence through the eyes – and dreams - of a toddler, it may be an impossible task.

Her aging parents need her, and the Cove is where she wants to raise her daughter. When her mother’s illness brings her and the big city doctor closer together, panic sets in. Her marriage taught her men don’t stay.

As if that’s not enough Faith has a dead gran haunting her, a young daughter missing her, and one devilishly delicious man making her wish she could have a second chance at life. And maybe she can, if she finds a way back into her body and wakes up by Friday. But if she doesn’t, this will be her last bad week—ever.

Nate Sutherland decided long ago he’d settle for friendship if he couldn’t have Faith’s heart. But now, as she nears death, he’s going to have to listen to his feelings in a whole new way—and act.

THE TEARS OF ISIS by James Dorr
HWA Bram Stoker(R) nominated collection

There's something unique about James Dorr's horror. Something unusual about the twists; something lovely about the writing and something very human about the monsters he brings forth in his pages. What makes his writing different is that yes, there can be gore; yes there can be people (and not-people) doing horrible things, but at the heart of almost every story is someone just like you and me. Someone who loves and longs for love and makes decisions based on these longings which are sometimes good and sometimes stupid but much of the time understandable.
