HOT PURSUIT 1 By Jennifer Zane
FREE!! 11/15- 11/17

A fun weekend at a friend’s wedding in Denver takes a bizarre twist for Anna Scott when her rental car is pulled over due to an "anonymous tip." In her trunk...one dead body linked to warring crime families. It should be easy for an innocent woman to be cleared of an random mix-up. But was it? The police aren't so sure, and neither is the crime boss who wants vengeance for his son-in-law's death. Jake Griffin is playing a dangerous game, having spent the last few months undercover in the Moretti crime family. Moretti assigns him to find out who Anna Scott is, what she wants, and to kill her if she's a threat. Jake needs to focus on taking down Moretti, but he can’t stop thinking about Anna, nor can he stop taking dangerous chances where she’s concerned. The most dangerous of all might be trusting her with the truth.

Family Plot By Sheri Cobb-South

Blog Diva - Wednesday, November 19, 2014

“It appears we have only one room vacant tonight on account of the fine weather bringing all the anglers to the coast for a last bit of fishing ere the winter sets in,” the innkeeper informed Pickett. “That being the case, I’ve taken the liberty of having your valise sent up to your wife’s room. I hope that’s agreeable.”

“My—my wife, you say?”

“Aye—Mrs. Pickett. You did say that was your name?” the innkeeper asked in some consternation.

“Yes, that’s it.” Pickett darted a quick, bewildered glance up the staircase.

“You’ll think me a regular noddy for not connecting the pair of you at once. Truth to tell, I had the impression Mrs. Pickett was a widowed lady.”

“No, that’s quite—quite all right,” Pickett assured him, wanting only to be rid of the man so that he might resolve the situation with the woman whom the innkeeper imagined to be his wife. Read More

The Promise By Beth Wiseman

Blog Diva - Monday, November 17, 2014

Mallory put the pan of lasagna into the oven and set the timer. Tate wouldn’t be at her house for at least an hour. She went back to the couch and resumed her research on Peshawar.

Ismail couldn’t have been any more transparent. Her boss knew she wanted to save a life, and he was clearly planting the idea in her head. She couldn’t blame him for wanting to help his niece. Abdul had told her the same thing as Ismail—that the media only showed the ugly parts of the country, that where he lived was very safe and beautiful. But as she scoured the Internet, she found photos to validate both the beauty of Pakistan and the fact that it was a war-torn country.

She’d been thinking about her cousin Kelsey all day. Would bringing Majida to the United States guarantee Mallory a place in heaven—or paradise, as Ismail called it? Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. She knew it was in the Bible, but she couldn’t recall who said it. She wished her parents had raised her and Vicky in the church. She should have at least been properly introduced to God when she was young. At the very least, would helping Majida ease her guilt over not being able to save Kelsey? Read More

Claiming Catherine By Vanessa Vale

Blog Diva - Saturday, November 15, 2014

It's only been a week since Claiming Catherine was published and it's made quite a stir. It rocketed up Amazon's charts and has sat at #1 in three categories all this time.

The premise of the story is a mail order bride coming to Liberty, Montana to begin her life with her new husband, Jake Bridger. But Liberty isn't a normal town and wives have strict rules to adhere to. As we're in the Erotic category, this book is obviously hot and a prime example of escapist fiction. It is the first in a series of three books, the second, Taming Tessa, comes out on 12/4

If you like erotic romance--mail order brides, Montana, historical westerns, with a whole lot of male dominance--enjoy! Read More

Hidden Heart By Measha Stone

Blog Diva - Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Romance novels have been a not-so-guilty pleasure of mine since forever. In college, I would pray to get stuck at the train crossing just so I could get a few more pages in before class. Now, I keep one stashed in my purse at all times. Thankfully, I’ve started listening to audiobooks in the car, so I don’t have horns blaring at me any more when the red light turns to green! Plus, there’s really no better way to get through a root canal than to listen to a hot erotic scene on your phone while the dentist is doing his thing.

It was only natural for my writing to go in the Romance direction. Erotic romance was only a small skip down the romance road, and one that I am having a blast traveling down. Not just because I get to play out fantasies on paper, but because there are so many places to go within the genre. The characters could have a heavy kink element to their relationship, they could have a light Domination/submission aspect or they could just like to get down and dirty in the bedroom, and I get to play in whichever sandbox I chose! Decisions! Decisions!

I think I have the most fun writing erotic romance because D/s a part of my life outside of my writing. Recently, I was asked if I felt a responsibility to portray the lifestyle in true form, and my answer is yes. I feel an obligation not only to the members of the BDSM community, but also to my readers. There is romance in daily Dominant/submissive relationships. There is love and passion. There is also some really hot, kinky sex. I like showing the reality of it all.  Read More

Braving Fate By Linsey Hall

Blog Diva - Saturday, November 22, 2014

Chapter 3

Cadan felt her presence like a wrecking ball to the chest just moments before a scream cut through the silence of the night. He sped toward the noise, racing down the sloping hill from his perch on an outcropping of Arthur’s Seat, his lungs and muscles burning in tandem. He’d waited here all day for Aerten’s vision to manifest.

Finally, it had. But she’d said nothing of attackers.

Terror lanced through him like acid in his veins. The wind tore at his clothes with icy claws as he hurtled down the eastern slope, with only faint moonlight to illuminate the scene below him.

A small figure fled from three taller ones at the base of the mountain, hair flying like a flag behind her. She stumbled and fell, and he swore he could hear a sob burst from her throat. Protect. He embraced the instinct and pushed himself harder, adrenaline singing in his veins.

Almost there. Only fifty yards. The beasts were upon her now, and her terror made a growl rise in his throat. Hurtling over a pile of rocks, he tackled the closest assailant, crashing to the ground in a tumble. The creature, a spindly red demon with eerie feminine features, bucked beneath him, attempting to throw him off. Cadan didn’t hurt women, but this demon was more evil than woman. Read More

Ghosts Of Christmas Past By Jessica Aspen

Blog Diva - Saturday, November 15, 2014

Hi! I’m Jessica Aspen and I write paranormal romance. You may have read my sexy shifter twisted fairy tales, or my fantasy fairy tale romances with elves and witches, but I’m here today to talk about my newest venture into the paranormal, a new series of holiday romances called HAUNTED HOLIDAYS. And guess what? The first book is here just in time for your holiday reading. GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST has it all, Christmas, ghosts, and of course…romance.

I had a ball writing a Gothic romance with all the trimmings. A sexy hero, a young heroine just out on her own, a creepy house. You get to meet Jen, just graduated from college she had her life planned out for her by her mother. But when her rich husband to be cheats on her with her best friend, Jen bails on the wedding, her mother, and Christmas in Boston. Instead she flees upstate to lick her wounds in a small rented house. But sexy Nate up the hill won’t let her stew on her own. And the ghosts aren’t letting her get much sleep either. Is she dreaming about a love story that really happened a hundred years ago? Or is it Nate she’s dreaming about?

GHOSTS OF CHIRISTMAS PAST is set it in my fictional small town of Applesett, Massachusetts, where I plan to set the next few books in the series featuring Nate’s older twin brothers: the overly-responsible Atticus, and the wishing he was fancy-free Ethan. But wait, there are more Pierce family members waiting in the wings and more holidays to write about. Read More

TWICE TEMPTED By Eileen Dreyer

Blog Diva - Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Fiona Ferguson's troubles began with a kiss . . .

It feels like a lifetime ago that Alex Knight saved Fiona from certain doom . . . and stole a soul-shattering kiss for good measure. Wanting nothing more than to keep her safe, he left her in the care of her grandfather, the Marquess of Dourne.

But Fiona was hardly safe. As soon as he could, the marquess cast her and her sister out on the streets with only her wits to keep them alive.

Alex has never forgotten that long-ago kiss. Now the dashing spy is desperate to make up for failing his duty once before. This time he will protect Fiona once and for all, from a deadly foe bent on taking revenge on the Ferguson line-and anyone who stands in the way . .

The Christmas Calamity By Shanna Hatfield

Blog Diva - Tuesday, November 11, 2014

It is a great pleasure to be on RomCom today to announce the upcoming release of my latest sweet Victorian romance holiday, The Christmas Calamity.

It’s the third book in the Hardman Holidays series, set in Eastern Oregon in the 1890s. Although Hardman is now a ghost town, back in the late 1800s it was a bustling stop on the stage route running through the area. The series begins with The Christmas Bargain followed by The Christmas Token. While each story focuses on a different set of main characters, familiar characters appear in all three stories.

In The Christmas Calamity, dependable and solid Arlan Guthry relishes his orderly life as a banker’s assistant in Hardman, Oregon. He’s even begun toying with the idea of courting the town’s schoolteacher. His uncluttered world tips off kilter when the beautiful and enigmatic prestidigitator Alexandra Janowski arrives in town, spinning magic and trouble in her wake as the holiday season approaches.

The Color Of Dreams By KG Stutts

Blog Diva - Friday, November 14, 2014

When I first started writing, it was a sci-fi story. I started writing based on a dream I kept having for a week straight. The story became a trilogy which I am incredibly proud of. The third, Mirror Reformed, releases in January. As I was wrapping up the first in the series, Mirror Image, a new inspiration came to me. Mirror Image was a story I began from a dream. What if my character experienced visions through dreams? And The Color of Dreams was born.

Julie was in my head before I had a fully realized story. I had a clear picture of a feisty, beautiful redhead and eventually the blanks filled in. This was my 2013 NaNoWriMo winner. It was fascinating to me. I did research online about the different meaning of color in dreams, how people remember or retain their dreams, if we actually dream in black and white. It intrigued me. Julie doesn’t think much about it, because it has always been a part of her. It doesn’t occur to her to wonder why, nor does she consider it a gift. It’s just a dream.  Read More

One Last Hold By Angela Smith

Blog Diva - Friday, November 07, 2014

I love love. I believe in love. I love watching people fall in love and fight falling in love because it doesn’t fit into their immediate plans, or they’ve been hurt before and don’t want to take that risk again. But most of all, I love seeing people remain in love, even throughout the tough times.

The fairytale image that has been taught to us for centuries has warped our view of love and romance. I believe love, just like life, is what you make of it. I believe there’s someone out there for everyone, I just believe that the majority of people don’t see it, run from it because of their own fears, or they place their happiness too much on love without recognizing they are the ones in charge of their life, if not their love. Love, just like anything else, takes work.

Yep, I’m a romantic at heart, but my romance isn’t chocolate covered cherries with rose scented baths and a glass of bubbly (although that’s nice every once in a while!) My romance is living with the love of my life, every day, even when it’s the mundane tasks of everyday life.  Read More
