Caught in the Spin
by Sharleen Scott
romantic suspense

Dusk. Roy drove the miles from the MB Ranch in a simmering rage. If it wasn’t for Tom Black, Roy would have his kid and be seeing Tennessee in his rear-view mirror. He needed another plan now and didn’t have one.
Tom Black would pay for this.

VIKING FLAME
Historical Romance

“What brings you to our island? To rape our women and pillage our churches?”
“No,” Bram said as he rose and tucked the small blade into his boot, “to find my bride.”

SIN CITY ALIBI is filled with sex, love, romance, suspense, and a very happy ending. It’s a stand-alone book, no horrid cliff hangers to this erotic tale. Here are the first three lines of Chapter 13.

At Matt’s protracted silence, Dani lifted her head from his chest and looked at him, waiting expectantly for his response. He kept his eyes glued to the ceiling, but she could see in their depths the shadow of the dark secret chained inside his heart. “Matt?” she asked softly, prompting him, her chest going tight at what his hesitation meant, instinctively knowing she wouldn’t like his answer.

Summer romance HOLDING BACK:

Laura's mind raced as her footsteps slowed. What on earth
was he doing here? The unlikely hope he might be passing by—
perhaps he'ʹd called in for directions to somewhere else?—was
immediately scotched as he lifted his luggage from the car.

From Civil War romance, Confederate Rose.

Katie gasped in appreciation at the sight of the cozy room, complete with stone hearth and cut wood piled as if awaiting their arrival. “Now isn’t this just perfect.”

Hart advanced and raised a warning finger to his lips.

My Name Is A'yen, futuristic/paranormal romance

Opening up like that had been exhausting. Despite it, A’yen lay awake staring at the ceiling. Farran Hart’s lips still seared his cheek.

These are the opening 3 lines to my new release, "Quite The Catch":

"Damn. I was just getting comfortable," Gabriela Concepción muttered as she quickly reached for the ends of her bikini top. Sunning herself on deck at the bow of her father's old sport fishing boat, she untied the back once they dropped anchor. It hadn't been more than five minutes, she figured, before she heard a boat throttling down.
