From New Release, The Phoenix Syndrome:

Turning forty, for research technician Lannie Marvin, is rough. It’s the day she discovers her husband is leaving her. At work, a crazed mouse brutally bites her. Lannie snaps. She heads off to chase the object of her newest crush, drummer of a heavy metal band—and an old dream of composing music.

Tristan Allard, said drummer, holds a benefit concert every year in memory of his wife. The musician is beginning to doubt his ability to write music without her inspiration. Plus, he’s damn lonely. So when a sexually charged 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.

This new chance at life and love has them both euphoric, but reality bites back. Tristan is headed back to the UK to audition his latest album. And Lannie soon learns an elevated libido isn’t the only side-effect of that experimental drug.

It’s a musician’s worst nightmare—the drug Lannie was exposed to have rendered the mice deaf.

A Question of Faith by Mona Karel

Rosalind Summerton led a charmed existence, right up to the day she accepted an invitation to visit a family in the Middle East and learn more about the culture up close and personal. It became far too up close, and she barely escaped with her life. She no longer has faith in herself as a survivor, and she needs to stay somewhere that she can see miles in every direction. Cold would also be nice.

Tyler Randolph has lost faith in himself and his judgement of people, especially women, after his wife left, along with his truck, trailer, and horse. He’s wondering why he’s bothering. Until he meets his new tenant: tall, sexy, intriguing—and scared.

Can these two cautious people have enough faith to try one more time?

From my new release: Dangerous Waves by L.M. Brown

When Dax lost his family to a shark attack he swam away from everything he had ever known. Now he has come to Atlantis, hoping to reconnect with those he left behind. When he finds his birth clan torn apart, he realises his journey is just beginning.

Kai is an Oracle, a blind merman, who only has sight when he has a vision. Atlantis, a sanctuary for so many mer people, is his prison. Desperation drives him to beg the Atlantean Goddess of Love for help.

With the goddess’s promise of love to tempt him, Kai persuades Dax to take him along when he leaves the sunken city.

Although Dax has some reservations about traveling through the ocean with a blind merman in tow, he quickly discovers Kai isn’t as helpless as he appears. Attraction comes easy, but Kai doesn’t seem to feel the same way.

Kai knows he must seduce Dax if he hopes to win his heart, but his inexperience may be his downfall. With Dax’s former lover at the end of their journey, he knows time is running out.

A goddess can only help so much, especially when another immortal would see them part. If the two stubborn mermen want a life together, they will have to learn to communicate and fight for their love.

Sometimes it doesn’t pay to leave home!

Against her parents’ wishes, spoiled teenager Jenny Halpin’s doting uncle gives her a space cruise as a graduation gift. Unfortunately, before Jenny can enjoy much of the voyage, the ship collides with a meteor shower and the pod in which she escapes is separated from the others. Landing on an uninhabited world are Jenny and her pod-mates…three little poodles. They’re not just any poodles, however, but the telepathic Royal Family of Canaris and they seem to believe Jenny is now their servant, existing just to protect and serve them…

Dredging up all the lessons in school she ignored or slept through, Jenny now must take charge. Soon she’s up to her neck in native dogs, pirate salamanders, and newborn pups…

Robinson Crusoe had it easy!

Blurb for THE LAST VAMPIRE STANDING by Tony-Paul de Vissage, published by Class Act Books:

Meet Vlad Chemare, a blast from the past who isn’t to be denied. He’s up-to-date, traveling by jet, and seeking revenge against the master who buried him alive for daring to lead a revolt back in the 15th century.

Armed with a Chase Sapphire and a Kevlar vest, Vlad’s out for blood—specifically Baslo Rigla’s—and he isn’t about to let his feelings for mortal Meredith Swanson stand in his way.

After all, a woman’s just a woman, but revenge is a dish best served cold, and six hundred years makes for some pretty chilly morsels.
