from A Question of Honor, released 5/9/2015

“It’s all right, Devin. You want me with a blazing honesty. I’ve learned honest lust is far better than love that can only be a lie.”

Sunday’s Child

A Sweet Regency Romance by Rosemary Morris

In future, Georgianne was sure she would meet someone as handsome as Rupert Tarrant with whom she would fall in love. She giggled. ‘Love is not the main prerequisite for marriage,’ Mamma always claimed. According to her mother, rank, lands, and wealth were more important whereas, according to Papa, love was the only reason to marry.

From American Victorian romance, The Physician's Irish Lady.

Keara eased herself into the seat as the woman eyed her warily. Once she turned toward the window, Keara relaxed a bit but still hugged her satchel against her, wishing she hadn’t dropped her half loaf of bread.

From The Adonis Touch by Romy Gemmell - romance and mythology on Cyprus!

His voice, his deep blue eyes, his curving firm mouth, all beguiled her and Katie forgot about Mike and her inhibitions as she took his hand and he helped her from the pool. Once they were standing together, Donas dipped his head and kissed her hand. “Few get the chance to see the beauty behind the surface. A few steps and we are there.”

From the next Dream Series book, FEVER DREAM (out May 22):

“You booked a room.” He nods. “And you told my parents we wouldn’t be home tonight.” Another nod. It’s all part of the fantasy, I guess. He’s been imagining that he’s James Bond all night, and after a glitzy evening at the casino, James Bond doesn’t hop into the minivan so he can get home, walk the dog and collapse into bed. No way. He takes his conquest for the evening up to the five-star hotel room, where the champagne is already waiting. On ice, no doubt.

From 'Starquest' - A SF Romance

Kerry's hands fascinated her. She felt such
hands should belong to an artist or a musician, not to this stern, logical man who seemed interested only in the ship and its computers. She turned her attention back to the observation panel and came to a decision.

[Angelic Adventure Fantasy 2012]

Sighing, Sedona watched the impressive light show in the night sky. All around her asteroids arced constantly, some flashing out before they struck. Most of the stars couldn’t be seen, hidden by the ash haze of Mexico’s erupting volcanoes, hellish explosions she’d watched on an illegal TV feed.

Bella's Betrothal by Anne Stenhouse

Charles Lindsay released her mouth slowly, and she was fascinated by the clouding of his eyes as he opened them and stared into hers. Anger melted into the moment.
The peace, however, did not last long enough for any treaty negotiations to begin.

From Prince Charmng Wore Spurs

Gillian Malone placed her cake fork beside the plate. “You always tell my daddy you will do anything for us.”
“Yes, I do. Your granddaddy and I are good friends,” Celeste said.
Gillian swallowed and pressed her hands down the front of her pink dress. “Well, I need something badly…very badly.”
Celeste held up a finger to silence the little girl while the waiter served them a bowl of fresh homemade ice cream. When he was out of earshot, she said, “Continue.” “I’m going to be this many this summer.”
Celeste watched her hold up six fingers.
“And I don’t have a mother. Daddy is too busy to bring one home.” She took a deep breath and looked straight into Celeste’s face. “I would like to hire you to find me one.”

Prince Charming Wore Spurs is to be released May 12, 2015. It is up for pre order on Amazon at

From La Déesse Noire: The Black Goddess, currently available for pre-order.


She felt gooseflesh rise on her arms and assumed her nipples had hardened underneath her green wool dress, because the rodent-on-two-legs couldn’t keep his bulging eyes from her breasts, tongue lapping at his lower lip, nostrils flaring as her cinnamon-and-sandalwood scent reached his nose.

The first time she had come here, she’d thought him polite, taking her pelisse and hanging it neatly, but now she knew he only hoped for a good view and to keep her as uncomfortable as he could manage.

“Have I not demonstrated my compliance?”

From KISSING KATIE (His Girl Next Door #1)

Matt felt astonishingly different in her hug. Of course he did, he’d grown taller and filled out since their last summer together twenty years ago when she’d hugged a boy goodbye. This Matt was all man, and he fit her exactly how a man should, rocking her with a wild, weird surge of enthusiastic craving.

From Ella's Gifts:
She picked up the receiver, "Ella speaking." She waited for a few moments and didn't hear anything. "Hello?" She could hear some rustling in the background, so she could tell that the line wasn't dead. "Are you there?" Then she heard a low, throaty chuckle. The hair on the back of her neck stood up.
"I'll see you soon, Angel." A deep voice taunted. Then the line was silent. Her breathing became ragged and shallow, as the dial tone began to vibrate in her ear.

"If you didn't think you could trust me, you'd be a fool to have come this far."
Grace didn't reply, but stared at the ceiling. Strangely, she did trust him.
