COMING SOON~
The Changeling by Rose Anderson. http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B004XDGWL6
Lenox Pendry sees Janet for the first time and is instantly curious. He asks the barman's young daughter about her.
**********************************************************
A moment later, I had the opportunity to ask the girl an important question. “Penny?”
“Aye, sir?”
“The pretty lady who helped bring your brother into the world, do you know her name?”
“Aye, sir, her name is Janet Roxburgh.” Penny looked around, and then to me, whispered, “My gran says Janet’s a true witch.”

RELEASING MONDAY MARCH 9!

The Druid Knight Tales: a Short Story by Ruth A. Casie
a Druid Knight story

Maximillian is the Druid Grand Master. The Ancients have sent him on a quest, find his soul mate within the year and give her the sacred mistletoe. They find themselves in the Otherworld. The mistletoe has died and he must tell the Ancients he has no soul mate. Ellyn is a sorceress who heals with a kiss but with each kiss her energy weakens. She has no idea why she's in the Otherworld. She suspects since she is dying it's to return her gift to the ancients. They work together to get to the Ancients facing one trial after another.
*****

She couldn’t look away from him. His appearance was deceptive. He wasn’t a warrior’s size—she had tended many of them with their broad, barrel-like chests. This man was tall and trim. His torso appeared defined, lean, and sinewy. His muscled arms looked powerful and she craved to have them around her.

Talia's Match: Coalition Mates Book 2
Sarah Marsh


Talia was fighting with herself on whether or not to give in to her raging lust and inch closer to the bath when she realised that her legs had already decided, and all she had to do was peek around the corner to see the prize. She wasn’t quite prepared for what she saw when she did, however—the two most beautiful men she’d ever seen in all their naked glory. Human men were simply just not made that way, or at least none of the naked men she had ever seen. They looked like two Greek Gods playing in the water.

Happy Sunday! These six lines are from my newest release ONE MORE SECOND CHANCE. Dr. Alex Campbell has temporarily moved to a small town in Maine, and he has no intention of staying permanently. Until he meets Julia Stewart, the local high school principal:

“I’m not your ex-husband, Julia,” he said fiercely. “I’m not going to abandon you and Ava.”

“Is Lobster Cove really the place you want to live and work for the rest of your life? Do you honestly want to live in a town this small forever?”

He hesitated, uncertainty evident on his face, and Julia pulled her hands away from his, her heart breaking. “That’s what I thought."

Thanks!

A short excerpt from my new release: Her Last Resort. A love story about two people in their 50s who thought love was in their past, and a mother who desperately wants to reconnect with the daughter she lost from a long-ago divorce.
*****

Stella's body was tingling from how close he was standing, as well as the effects of the multiple alcohols in the coffees. She shrugged extravagantly.
"I don't know. Maybe she thinks you'll try to kiss me good-night or something."
He reached a hand forward and used his finger to tip her face up to look into her eyes in the moonlight.
"Would you allow me to do that?" His voice was husky and gentle.
"Have you been flirting with me, or have I been imagining things?" Stella asked, meeting his eyes tentatively.
"Am I so out-of-practice that you have to ask?"
Stella smiled shyly at him, "I'm out-of-practice too. It's been a long time since anyone made me feel the way being around you does."
"Then may I take that as a 'yes'?"

THE TROUBLE WITH DYING by Maggie Le Page - released December 2014.
A chick lit suspense novel exploring life and death and the spaces in between.

------

My throat closes over. What if, under all those bandages, my brain’s a pulpy, irretrievable, mushed-up mess?

The men continue talking, the doctor’s tone placating, the Carson guy—my husband—irate, and I hear nothing. I’m looking at my comatose body, the wires and tubes and assisted breathing, and all I see is brain squidge. Oozing, gloopy brain squidge.

My past may be gone forever.

And I haven’t the slightest clue if it was one worth keeping.

------

Happy reading!
The Trouble With Dying is available on Amazon - http://amzn.com/B00QTAAGFY

From La Déesse Noire: The Black Goddess, available for pre-order by this time next week. :-)

“You are a /tawaif/, Kali, not a streetwalker. Dancing in a /kotha/ in India, you would command the influence of the most powerful /rajahs/ and /nabobs/ and /firangis/. What do you desire that might be provided by a wealthy baron who wishes to be your /friend/? Something more than jewels and accounts with dressmakers?”

From Dragon Destiny - For a human, a dragon form comes with more than just the freedom of the sky.

Unbidden, the memory of a quiet voice rose. Branin. Anastasia imagined the dragshi who went with the name. Feature by feature a face formed in her mind, then other attributes came forward. Tall enough to dance her around the room. Strong enough to carry her when she tired. And most of all—a man worthy of the title “dragshi.”


Available at Amazon. For excerpts, complete distribution list, and a free read of the first chapter visit here. Find me on the web at helenhenderson-author.webs.com.

From AMEN TO LOVE, an erotic gay romance in a contemporary setting.

When an attempt is made on the life of their chief of surgery, the hospital board demands security protection for Bond Bergstrom 24/7 until the killer is found. Bond is furious. Former SEALs can protect themselves better than anyone in the world. Not so, argues former Delta Force operative Rory O’Shea, the hot, sexy Irishman who owns the security agency. Bond gives in, unaware that O’Shea has an ulterior motive in staying with him nights as his personal bodyguard.

Will O’Shea prove he has what it takes to satisfy the doctor—both in and out of the bedroom?

Here is a snippet from my latest sci fi novel, Rebellion, which will be available from MuseItUp Publishing this summer

The squad of Federation Guard soldiers marched down the shuttle ramp and surrounded the unfortunate Major Reynolds, who waited on the blackened surface of the spaceport landing field.
Colonel Robert Walker gazed across the port. The sands just beyond the black-paved surface of the field glittered with reds and blues, and the mountains, five miles distant, loomed purple. A fresh breeze blew the cinnamon scent of the flowers that clustered around the buildings. But the beauty of the landscape contrasted with his sour mood. He was ordered to arrest the commander of the Federation base and take control of it, here on an alien planet where the native Aleyni would just as soon see the entire base drop into a hole and disappear.
