Welcome back to Adams Grove…where more than the barbecue is sizzling.
In the latest book in the Adams Grove series, Barbecue and Bad News, advice columnist Savannah Dey could use some guidance of her own, especially when it comes to the feelings stirred up by the handsome sheriff of Adams Grove…and the secrets of her tragic past.
And although the handsome sheriff knows from experience that city girls are a recipe for disaster, he can’t get the gal he pulled over for speeding off of his mind.
Scott’s barbecuing, Savannah’s got the bad news and together let’s hope they get their just desserts…and by that I, of course, mean their happy ever after ;) Read More
What is so special about three?
Three seems to be a magical number. It is often said that good things come in threes (umm, and bad things, too). In the literary world many famous stories have included the number three; The Three Musketeers, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Three Blind Mice. In maths three is the first odd prime number, and, if you round it up, it’s pi (which I remember from school was pretty important). Buses are said to come in threes. There are three primary colours. When you blow out a candle you make three wishes…and you give three cheers.
Three is special to me, too, because I now have three books published. Two years ago I would have been over the moon to have just one out there and yet here I am, the proud writer of three. My first, Too Charming, wasn’t the first book I wrote. Funnily enough, it was the third. After that came Do Opposites Attract and now my third book, Life After. The thrill of seeing that go live is just as great as the thrill of seeing my first. If you’re surprised at that, just think about books as children. They have a longer gestation period, true (mine are more akin to baby elephants) but the time up to birth is filled with just as much excitement (and exhaustion and pain – I’m thinking editing here!). And when it comes to the actual birth, to that book going live for the first time, is it any less wonderful to see the second or third child born than it was the first? I don’t think so. Read More
While the majority Love in Los Angeles, our LGBTQ+ romance series from Torquere Press, takes place in, well, Los Angeles, some pretty crucial action happens in various locations outside of that city.
One of those places is Marion, South Carolina, the town Paul, one of our heroes, grew up in. At the beginning of Doves, book two in the series, Paul and his boyfriend Alex travel to South Carolina to visit Paul’s family. It’s both a vacation for them, away from the stress and schedules of their lives in L.A. -- Alex is an actor, and Paul runs his own TV show -- and a chance for Paul to show Alex some of his own history. It’s a way for both of them to step outside of their daily lives, and learn a little more about each other.
When our characters are in Los Angeles, or New York, or Washington, D.C., or any of the many other cities their jobs take them to, the prose of the Love in Los Angeles books trips along like a script. The language is spare, and precise, and we do our best to not direct from the page too much -- that is, we like to leave room for interpretation for our readers to fill in as they will. Also, silence and space can often be much more eloquent that sound and forms. Read More
True love can change the course of your life
by Cate Masters
Love makes people do crazy things, doesn’t it? Especially when they’re in love with the wrong person.
Buck Wright was miserable trying to hang onto the wrong someone. When she left him, it wrecked him. Then he made his first decision for himself—to became a dog sled guide in Sweden, unaware how much he’d love it, or that it would lead him to true love with someone who brought out the best in him.
Do you love reading stories about finding real love the second time around?
“Photos never do them justice.” Buck’s upturned face reflected the soft glow.
Such a handsome face. Why did a good-looking guy choose to live such a solitary existence? “Don’t you get lonely?” Gah, I said it out loud. A rookie mistake. Luckily, no one had followed her with a camera. Read More

(Author’s note: A young man, Matthew, has just brought a breakfast tray to Maggie, the adult daughter of The protagonist of The Brothers’ Keepers. They’re in the library, working to try to prevent disaster on an epic scale. She’s a hydrologist and he’s a Mossad associate. Both have neglected personal lives for careers, a condition that’s apparent in the awkward exchange that follows.)
“A headache, probably from lack of sleep. I don’t know how everyone keeps this pace. And I’m the nut who willingly got up early, instead of enjoying that marvelous bed,” Maggie said. “That’s the fluffiest down comforter ever.”
“Many geese gave their feathers for you, Ms. Madison. They were honored.” Matthew bowed, and reached for her hand. “Give me your left hand.”
She stiffened. “Why?” Failure. Read More
One Riot, One Ranger…
That’s the Texas Ranger motto, but when Chad Foster’s rebellious brother goes missing, it’s time to put his elite training to use investigating a crime that strikes much closer to home. Turning Los Angeles inside out to retrieve Trey and save their ranch from a ruthless land grab is a no brainer, even if it puts his badge at risk. His only lead is a heart-stoppingly sensuous exotic dancer with a very tempting butterfly tattoo, the woman who helped scam his brother out of their ranch. But staying on top of this redhead's every suggestive word and sensual move means putting his case—and his heart—right in the line of fire . . .
A Texas Ranger, complete with quarter horse, is as out of place in downtown L.A. as a lawman is in the bed of a suspect, but with both their lives at risk, Chad has to put his trust in the one woman who could bring him down for good, and pray that somehow hard evidence is really just a pack of lies. . .
