Sophia Nelson returns to her hometown in Yorkshire, England to begin a new job as tour guide at Heaton Abbey House. There, she meets the reclusive Thomas, Baron Heaton, a lonely workaholic.

Despite having a rule never to become involved with her boss, Sophia can’t deny how she finds him incredibly attractive.

When she overhears the secret surrounding his parentage, she is torn. But is it the attraction or the fear of opening a Pandora’s box that makes her keep quiet about it?

How long can she stay at the abbey knowing what she does?

From Upcoming Release, THE PHOENIX SYNDROME:

Turning forty, for Lannie Marvin, is rough. It’s the day she discovers her husband is leaving her for a younger “soulmate.” At work, a crazed mouse being treated with an experimental drug brutally bites her. Then, Lannie goes a little crazy, too.

Seems she’s recently developed a serious crush on the drummer of her son’s favorite heavy metal band. Waking up to her husband’s empty closet, her finger still throbbing from the mouse bite, Lannie snaps. Under the ruse of a shopping trip, Lannie kidnaps her sister-in-law/best friend, and heads toward Bethel, New York – the site of the original Woodstock concert.

Just so happens Dreamwish is playing a concert there, and Lannie managed to procure the pair of tickets her son won but couldn’t use.

Tristan Allard, the band’s drummer, holds this benefit every year in memory of his wife, whom he lost to breast cancer. The musician is beginning to doubt his ability to write the band’s music without his wife’s inspiration – she was also his muse. Plus, he’s damn lonely. So when a sexually charged, extremely attractive, slightly older woman literally plows into him at the backstage reception, Tristan is ready to learn more about her – and her long-buried interest in musical composition.

The two head off for a wild ride of a weekend, but reality boomerangs around way too soon. Tristan is headed to the UK to audition his next album’s scores. And an elevated libido isn’t the only side-effect of that experimental drug.

To her horror, Lannie soon discovers the treated mice have gone deaf.

THE DETERMINED BRIDE (Book 7 of the McCoys series) by Toni V. Sweeney

When Brigid McCoy’s father decides she should marry staid, taciturn Eamonn O’Neill, she agrees…not simply because Quinton McCoy wishes it, but because she loves the young gentleman. The only trouble is…Eamonn doesn’t love Brigid, at last he never says so. To her new husband, romance is nonsense, and having a wife is a necessity to supply an heir. The fact he has a mistress doesn’t help.

What’s an ignorant bride to do?

Brigid may be new to the world of marriage but she’s a woman fighting for her man. Using her inborn wolmanly wiles and the lessons in an ancient book on pornography, she’s determined to make Eamonn realize romance isn’t a fiction but a reality. She going to make him say, “I love you,” and mean it.

The Last Vampire Standing by Tony-Paul de Vissage, published by Class Act Books:

The South is being invaded…by vampires.

That’s nothing new, but Vlad Chemare isn’t some angst-filled paranormal hero longing for his lost soulmate. He’s up-to-date, traveling by jet, and seeking revenge against the master who buried him alive in punishment for daring to lead a revolt back in the 15th century.

Armed with American Express and a Kevlar vest, Vlad’s out for blood…specifically Baslo Rigla’s. With the vampires of Savannah and their American defiance of tyranny rallied around him, he’s not only got his army, but the local werewolf population is volunteering to become his K-9 Corps.

As the fight begins, with the city of Savannah as the battleground, and the rest of the world as the prize, Vlad suddenly faces something he hadn’t expected… Will he let his feelings for mortal Meredith Swanson stand in his way?

After all, a woman’s just a woman, but revenge is a dish enjoyed even six hundred years later.
