From Secret Destiny by Kathy Kulig


Take one desperate stripper.

A gorgeous lover who’s determined to help, and steal her heart.

Add a mysterious billionaire with a really hot, indecent proposal.

It’s the perfect arrangement for two lovers willing to play a steamy, kinky game—or is it?

How can their hearts and career possibly survive the consequences?

On the verge of financial ruin, Destiny Noir accepts an offer from the billionaire manager of Dark Odyssey. The hedonistic club in a mansion along the South Florida coast caters to the rich and powerful, providing sexy entertainment to satisfy their clients' sinful requests. Performing kinky sex shows at private parties should be easy for two lovers, and Darius Logan is her willing partner. The risk to her professional reputation is high, but the money and scorching sex is too good to refuse.

Besides, Destiny is enjoying the naughty games. Maybe a little too much?

Amazed by how uninhibited she can be, Destiny is driven by a sensual need aroused by her audience. But when passion becomes an obsession, and her clients demand special favors, the perfect arrangement gets out of control. In any game, someone is bound to lose in the end—unless another opportunity arises.

From A Question of Faith, A Stormhaven Love Story. Out October 1

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.

Cold would 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?

Curse of the Exile - a Scottish Victorian Gothic Romance
Janis Susan May
available in both ebook and paperback

“CURSE OF THE EXILE is a traditional Gothic mystery reminiscent of the best of Victoria Holt and Virginia Coffman that no lover of Gothics should miss. A courageous heroine, 1860s Scotland, two handsome brothers, a moldering castle, an unknown villain bent on a horrid vengeance… delicious! A perfect book for curling up with for a long enjoyable trip to the past.”
Carla Renard, The Literary Lady

After an unhappy childhood and a cruelly broken romance, Angelina Barstow has found a kind of respectable life working as a librarian with her charming but womanizing father. In 1860 they come to the Scottish castle called Merlon Motte, where the owner and his much younger brother are sharply divided on the necessity of selling the place. An ancient sword is stuck into the ceiling of the Great Hall and family legend says it was put there by a long-ago exiled son, who promised to curse anyone who endangers the castle. Angelina regards this as just a charming family story until the prospective buyer is murdered, the Sword of the Exile driven through his heart.

In spite of herself, Angelina has fallen in love, but though she loves one and sincerely likes the other she doesn’t know which of the brothers is the murderer. She thinks things can get no worse, but then there is another, more shocking death when her father is found drowned and the prospective buyer’s friend, the same man who so tried to dishonor her years before, says he intends to make her his mistress by force if necessary. Two more long held secrets threaten Angelina and her beloved before the Curse of the Exile is finally lifted.

The Highland Lass

Eilidh Campbell returns to her Scottish roots from America with one main aim: to discover the identity of her father. But her mother’s past in Inverclyde is a mystery with family secrets, a book of Robert Burns’ poems with a hidden letter and a photograph link to the Holy Loch at Dunoon when the American Navy were in residence.

Staying with her childhood friend, Kirsty, while searching for answers, Eilidh begins to fall in love with handsome Scot Lewis Grant, but just how free is he? Together they trace the story of Highland Mary and Robert Burns, with its echoes to her mother’s story. In short alternate chapters, Highland Mary tells her own story from 1785-6. From Dunoon, to Ayrshire and culminating in Greenock, Eilidh finds the past is closer than she realises.

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.
