Day 8: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

The winner of yesterday’s books is Mandy! Congratulations! And wow what a turnout we had here yesterday!

Today I have some very hot het books by very awesome authors to give away. And I’m including the first two Tales of the Darkworld books and the latest Encounters short story in this bundle. Six really great books to heat up your holiday nights! Oh and the cover art for my books as well as Jacki’s and Lori’s are my work. You can see them over at Winterheart Design.

Jianne Carlo – Alpha Me Not

Available at:   AMAZON  ARe   B&N      LOOSE-ID

Grad student Susie White wants no picket fences, no alpha, and no cubs. White wolf woman she may be, but no pack for her, no sireee. Alpha Me Not, that’s her motto. In all caps.

Mercenary and half-breed wolf Joe Huroq’s not looking for a mate. Stop and go screwing, that’s his motto. Hot and  heavy between missions. Then he glimpses his new neighbour tanning nude and the situation explodes.

Literally. Susie’s house is consumed by fire. What’s Joe to do but offer Susie his hospitality?

Susie can’t resist the temptation of big, bad, mercenary, so she suggests a friends with benefits arrangement which he accepts with an amazing alacrity. The sex is frantic, hot, and frequent. Neither one can keep their hands off the other.

Then children go missing. The fire’s deemed arson. Bodies pile up. Susie refuses to accept Joe’s mate claim.

How can he keep her safe when she won’t obey a single order?

Jacki KellyThe Sweet Road Home

Determined, Asa Conroy has moved back to Bristol to organize her life.  The house where she grew up is just the place to take control of her future.  But her happy return home is soon quashed when she finds out the house is slated for demolition by the same man that shunned her in high school.

Career-driven Simeon Harper is one construction project away from erasing his dysfunctional past and fulfilling his promises to his dying mother.  When these two childhood friends collide will they be able to salvage their love or does it go down in the rubble?

Lori TolandPayback

Melanie is having a bad day. She nearly set her kitchen on fire and who comes running to her rescue? Firefighter Andre Wellings, her brother’s best friend and her long time crush. Now she has to take a fire safety course with him but something’s up and she plans to get to the bottom of this.

When Andre gets the call Mel is in danger, he’s scared to death of losing the woman he’s always admired in secret. Now that she’s safe, he breathes a sigh of relief until his teammates begin to tease her. Playing pranks on her when they were kids used to be fun but hurting her now isn’t an option.

Caught in a web of lies, Andre shows up to her house with plans to set her straight but Melanie has a different idea. Too many years of having her pigtails pulled by Andre has made her hungry for revenge and now it’s time for payback.

Lex Valentine – Shifting Winds, Hot Water, Colin Cuffed

Vampire Elysia Granville and her brothers own a cemetery in the Darkworld. When Elysia goes to the Undertaker’s Ball on Halloween in search of a one night stand, she finds more than she bargained for. Elysia isn’t looking for a mate or any kind of relationship. When she makes the mistake of choosing black dragon Declan Antaeus to relieve her sexual tension, she ends up finding fulfillment on more levels than she ever dreamed of.


Black dragon Eden Antaeus is a bad girl. Or so her brother Sean would have her believe. When Sean tells Eden she’s the Queen of Kink, someone who can’t get off on normal sex, Eden runs straight to the vampire club Carpe Noctem to find someone to have vanilla sex with. What Eden finds is Colin Granville, her brother Declan’s new brother in law. Desire burns hot between them despite the lack of surnames and after one night together, they both want more. Getting past the discovery that their siblings are married, Colin teaches Eden that she’s not the Queen of Kink and Eden finds a love, and a life, she never expected to have.

Colin Granville had a bad day and was looking forward to a quiet evening with his mate. But Eden has other plans for him that don’t include  “quiet.” Her cousin Emily is away on vacation and Eden has the key to her house. She takes Colin there and introduces him to Emily and Vahid’s private dungeon.  Reluctant to play at first, Colin gives in to Eden and is instantly cuffed to the bed. What follows is a night of sensory deprivation and fun with a violet wand, proving that even married couples can be pretty kinky.


Isn’t that a great line up of books? Look for the other Tales books and the other Encounters books a little later this month. 😉 So you know the drill, leave a comment for a chance to win all six books! You have until midnight Pacific time (3 am Eastern) to git ‘er done!

Happy Holidays!
