As a plus, Linda Carroll-Bradd is offering to give away an ecopy of her book and print 2013 calendar fromThe Wild Rose Press chosen from those who either subscribe to her blog or follow her author Facebook page and mention the “30 Days of Christmas Giveaway.” What an extra bonus!

I forgot to post the links to Shifting Winds’ and Hot Water’s trailers yesterday but I remembered to post trailer links today. The one for the Wise Guy is one of my faves!


Adera Orfanelli – Wolf’s Bone


For Ryx, hunting dinosaur bones is more than a scientific curiosity; it’s a way for him to connect with his people’s ancestors. But he isn’t the only member of the team with secrets. He knows Eli isn’t really a boy, and she doesn’t smell quite human. What he doesn’t know is that Eliza is a werewolf, and her past is about to catch up with them.


Linda Carroll-Bradd – On With the Show


Every Thanksgiving, Franzi Mueller returns to her hometown, Freedom Valley, to help with a musical show put on at the veteran’s hospital. After a decade of living in Houston, Franzi starts feeling nostalgic for the sense of community of her small Texas town. Too bad Mama has decided to play matchmaker and keeps pushing together Franzi and her ex-high school beau, Dietz Reinhardt. Local hardware store owner Dietz can see that her big city clothing designer job has worn Franzi down and he’s doing what he can to ease her load. Circumstances throw them together at every turn, and every glance and each touch ignites the old sparks. Can Franzi find what her creative spirit needs in Freedom Valley? Is time running out on this second chance for Dietz to win over her heart?

Kitty Bucholz – Little Miss Lovesick


Sydney Riley hears voices in her head…

Voices that keep her sane and voices that drive her crazy. The one thing they all agree on – forget Dirk the Jerk and move on.

So Sydney lets her friends drag her into the wilds of Northern Michigan where Little Miss Lovesick, the loudest voice in Sydney’s head, runs into – literally – the perfect man. Is hot fishing guide Matt Engel the man to vanquish heartbreak?

With the vacation flirtation behind her, Sydney is ready to start again. Soon after, however, a difficult – and must keep – client demands Sydney work with his new contractor. Yes, one and the same Matt Engel, hotter than ever and right here in town.

But when Matt’s past comes between them, Sydney wonders how to prevent another broken heart. As the rest of her life spirals out of control, she learns that sometimes a plan isn’t enough without friends to share the load.

Maybe together they can even help Little Miss Lovesick find what she’s been fishing for.

Lex Valentine – The Wise Guy, The Pixie Prince


Randall Wise is the quintessential good guy. However, all of his friends are married and he’s still single. Rand is positive that good guys finish last at love and decides he needs to change if he’s ever going to find the woman for him. Brenna Thorne is a klutzy but cute would be witch who moves in next door to Rand. Men always think of Brenna like a sister. They never see her as girlfriend or mate material. Brenna longs for a man of her own who sees her sexy side and all the love she has to give. A little magic from Rand’s godparents, a familiar who isn’t a familiar, and a host of well meaning, but surprising friends help Rand and Brenna see that all you need to find your mate is a heart that is open to love.

The Pixie Prince – BUY LINK, TRAILER

Underwear model Max Fever has a problem. He’s just become the Pixie Prince and his inheritance includes big golden wings that won’t let him sleep on his back. Max has to find a soft mattress or spend the rest of his days with a bruised behind.

An enigmatic waiter named Marty takes Max to club Carpe Noctem to meet a vampire who has a space foam mattress. Max falls in love with the mattress and its owner, vampire Bliss Wilde. Will the tragic pasts of Bliss’ brother and Max’s best friend become a roadblock to their bonding?

The Pixie Prince will be going out of contract in a few months. I’m really going to miss that cover by Cristine Griffin. *sigh* I’m still not sure what I’ll be doing with the story either. Probably cleaning it up some more, maybe lengthening it. Not sure if it will go indie or if I’ll give it to Pink Petal Books since they really have dibs on anything regarding the Darkworld. It’s all up in the air, but for now, the book is still out and if you don’t win you can still purchase it.

You know what do if you want to win these books! Leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time!

Happy Holidays!

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!

Day 7: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

The winner of yesterday’s books is…Yvette! Congratulations!

Today is really special. I’ve got two really wonderful authors for you plus something else of mine.

Tara Lain -Snow Balls

Big, handsome and hunky, JJ LaRousse looks like an alpha male but acts like an interior decorator. And he’s trying to be happy about it — until a robbery at the famous Laguna Winter Fantasy brings JJ face-to-face with tough cop, Ryan Star. JJ hears Ryan likes guys who are manly men, so he drops his voice an octave, colors over his pink hair, and tries to pass as a football fan. Ryan Star may be tough but he hides in the closet at work since he learned in New York that being a gay cop can cost you your life. His attraction to that big, handsome kid threatens his anonymity, but he can’t seem to resist. JJ is just his type. But then JJ goes skiing and comes face to face with his greatest nemesis– and all the secrets come out of the closet. Can Ryan love JJ for who he really is? More important, can JJ?


Erica PikeLittle Stalker

College student Coby is being stalked by a young guy and has no idea why, until someone suggests that the stalker may have a crush on him. The idea both excites and terrifies Coby, who is so deep in the closet he can barely manage to think the word “gay” without freaking out.




Lex Valentine – Where There’s Smoke

A murderous father. A son with a price on his head. Zander’s year-long affair with a mysterious woman ends when she tells him that her abusive mate is the father he’s never known. The woman, a prophesy-dreaming immortal known as the Phoenix, explains that Zander has three brothers and that his father killed their mothers. Now, the Phoenix has dreamt of her mate’s death and Zander’s destiny. Voth is the Phoenix’s successor and Zander’s true mate. The two set out to find Zander’s brothers while eluding the assassins sent after them by Zander’s father. Passion burns hot between them, sealing their fate, as their journey leads them to fulfill the Phoenix’s prophecy.

Day 6: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

The winner of yesterday’s big batch of books is…Marie! Congratulations!

Today, I have three very awesome MF authors with books for your reading pleasure! And just to make things a tad hotter, I’m including something of mine…

Marcia JamesHeating Up the Holidays, Sex and the Single Therapist

Nicky is up to her pointed elf ears—filling in for Santa’s helper, corralling kittens and running her department store. With 14 shopping days till Christmas, the last thing she needs is her high school heart-breaker.

Chris leaves the city to raise his five-year-old daughter, Holly, in his hometown. His plans don’t include a second chance with his first love.

With the help of mistletoe, a hairless dog and a lonely child, Chris and Nicky just might get their Christmas desires.

To clear an innocent friend, sex therapist Dr. Ally Skye investigates a patient’s murder. Soon she’s trading heated words and hot kisses with a sexy cop. Can this free-spirited amateur sleuth and her posse of Vegas insiders solve the crime before the killer targets her?

Cynical homicide detective Zack Crawford has the murder to solve. The last thing he needs is a red-hot sex therapist who haunts his dreams. Ally is trouble and, given her job and his luck, she’d probably grade his performance in bed.

Crime-solving was never this sexy or this fun!

Sidney BristolBound With Pearls

The last thing Christine wants to do is another favor for her sister, but Lucy always gets what she wants. This time it’s Chris playing sub to a demanding Dom. Their relationship begins with a power exchange and progresses to time spent between the sheets. Now emotions are getting complicated and the Dom isn’t just a hunky guy in black.

Daniel’s expectations are turned upside down when he meets Chris. She’s more than a well-trained submissive. She’s a woman with a body he wants to memorize. He’s willing to spend as much time as it takes to learn her, because she might be his match and his muse. He’ll make her come so hard he’s imprinted on every inch, and then he’ll offer her the most precious thing he can, himself.


Raine DelightSticky Magic

A chance meeting at a sweet shop…Can it be love?

Jenna Stevens wasn’t looking for love nor did she believe it would walk into her life one holiday season. Marc du Bree needs to find his destined mate so he can take over the family duties from his father. Meeting Jenna, Marc finds the connection he has been searching for. Can he convince this gun shy woman that his love is indeed true?


Lex Valentine – Rock My World

Rock star Gia Santora is at the height of her career when a frightening brush with a psychotic stalker changes her life. Three years later, she’s ready for more than a string of one-night stands on the road, but finding a date isn’t easy for a woman with a bodyguard. When she meets her sexy young opening act, he pushes all her buttons, sexually and emotionally.

Sin Carstens is rock’s hottest new guitar god with a body and a voice to match his name. He takes Gia on a wild sexual ride that has them literally rockin’ the tour bus. But Sin’s got priorities other than music and sex. He wants a relationship with the commitment-shy Gia. When the stalker gets loose and their lives are on the line, Gia pushes Sin away. But Sin’s willing to fight Gia’s fears in an effort to win himself the sexiest woman he’s ever known, and prove that he can rock her world.

You know the drill…leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time for a chance to win these five books! And don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see what’s up for grabs next!

Happy Holidays!

Day 5: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

Yesterday’s winner is Jess1. Woot! Congrats and Happy Holidays!

Today we have a plethora of books to stimulate you! Books in both MM and MF genres from three different authors who offer you a little of everything…

Angelia SparrowPower in the Blood, Love That Never Dies, Pushing the Boundaries of Reality (MF), Swimming Through the Net (MM), Hard Reboot (MF)

Oren Stolt understands the natural order better than most people. Vampires prey on humans and Undying keep the vampires’ numbers in check.

Until now.

Now, across the United States, vampire numbers are exploding, thanks to a new church. The Tabernacle of the Firstfruits preaches a Risen Lord and invites believers to follow Him in death and resurrection…quite literally.

In Memphis, the church is about to host its first conference, with an eye to converting the whole world to the vampiric gospel. And all that stands between humanity and eternal night is Oren, his kids, and a thin line of insane immortals.

Thousands of books have been written about love and sex between humans and werewolves, vampires, aliens, shapeshifters, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures. But, what about the real, honest, and alluringly bizarre world of the undead.  Not just zombies – though a few are stumbling through this anthology – not just the once-alive – but also the differently-living?  In these pages you’ll discover things shambling out of tombs, existing on whole new plains of existence, and more.  In the hands, and minds, of these deeply talented and wonderful writers nothing will be quite what it appears.

Buckle yourself in and get ready for a ride will of unexpected twists and turns, where your libido and desires may go in one direction while your brain – screaming all the time “No no no no no no!” – goes the opposite.

“Between Despair and Ecstacy” tells of Marcus, a Servant of the Undying and his new assignment, Samil.


“Pushing the Boundaries of Reality” takes us into the frontiers of cyberspace, as the Technomancer–Zara Broine–learns the limitations of her programs and Gemini–David benEzra–breaks all the boundaries of cyberspace, love and marriage.


Net runner Shelby failed a run and was captured by The Wheelman. Now, he serves the Wheelman as an Immortal, a quadruple amputee kept alive by machines while his mind runs the Net, searching for bits of data, corporate secrets and access codes.

In the net, however, he is Swift-Current, a merman, and he has fallen for another Immortal, Mark, a Lovecraftian monster hunter. But the Wheelman is a jealous employer and wants no distractions for his servants…


Two years ago, Sean O’Neill’s wife, Caitlin—the ace net-runner called Irishgirl—was stolen from their bed. Now, he knows where she is, but getting her back is only the first step in a long journey.

Caitlin has been trained as a sex slave, her former skills as a net-runner and cyber-thief totally stripped from her, along with her identity and most independent thought. Powerful and wealthy social elites, playing their own dangerous high-stakes games, have hired Sean to retrieve her and again make her what she once was.

But two years is a long time to be out of the net and out of normal society. A lot of new programming has been laid down. Now, giving Irishgirl a hard reboot may take everything Sean has in him, and more…

Mardi BallouTingle Bells (MM) and Reunions  Dangereuses (MFM)

Justin Clancy is counting on his new invention to make the holiday season bright for his financially struggling family. With a chime guaranteed to sexually arouse any adult, Tingle Bells are the perfect stocking stuffer-until a cruel hex turns those sexy sounds into ear-splitting croaks. Far more adept at practical sciences than witchcraft, Justin knows he needs expert help fast or the Clancys’ Christmas will go down the tubes.

Trust-fund-wealthy Ramon Ramirez is a private eye certified for metaphysical investigations. He’s also a long-time loner who wishes for connection. Sparks fly between him and Justin the moment they meet, and Ramon falls for Justin-and his whole family. But neither man is quite ready to give up his heart to the other. Ramon has to work on cracking his solitary armor, and the self-conscious Justin isn’t so sure his new man isn’t just slumming-or pitying him.

In the midst of grappling with an eccentric family feud, mangled bells and their own personal baggage, Justin and Ramon vow to make things right and stir up a little magic of their own.

According to anonymous newspaper writer Gossip Guru, vampires are crappy lovers and the legends of their sexual prowess are worthless hype. After publishing her opinions, GG doesn’t have many fans in the San Francisco vampire community. When vamps Jake Ardlow and Dean Morley uncover GG’s true identity, they decide to set her straight.

Successful businesswoman Pam Holland writes the GG column for fun, never dreaming that anyone is paying attention. Then Jake and Dean, classmates she crushed on at the high school they all hated, convince her to be their date for the twentieth reunion. Pam, who doesn’t know how much the guys have changed since high school, feels like she’s died and gone to heaven.

Reunion night is even better than Pam’s fantasies, at first. Then she’s in for some surprises. So are Jake and Dean.

Karenna ColcroftLost Soul (MM) and Beta Test (MF)

Sorcerer Joel Turcotte fuels his magic by stealing pieces of people’s souls during sex. Since he caused the death of his lover a decade ago, he’s careful to only take small pieces, but he regrets each one. When he meets Lanny Turcotte, he finds the strongest soul he’s ever encountered, and one that’s almost impossible to resist. Although Joel is reluctant to become involved with anyone, he and Lanny begin a relationship.

But Joel isn’t the only sorcerer who wants Lanny. Can Joel protect his lover from other sorcerers—and from himself?


Tareth McConnell has learned not to count on anyone other than herself, and really isn’t in the market for a relationship. But the first time she sees the man with his long hair in a braid on the subway, she’s strangely drawn to him. Despite that, a month passes before they say more than hello to each other.

The first time Justin Ruel speaks with Tareth, he knows there’s something special about her. Something different. If he didn’t know better, he would swear she was his mate. But Justin is the Beta of the City Pack, the largest werewolf pack in New England, and there’s no possible way he could have a human mate. At first, Justin tries to hide the truth from Tareth. When a series of attacks occur on pack members, Tareth’s life might be endangered, and Justin has no choice but to tell her–even if that means losing her forever.

There’s a lot of books to be had here. A veritable library of goodies! You must comment on this post by midnight Pacific time tonight for a chance to win all of these!

Also, if you hop over to my Facebook page, you help me choose a title for my Christmas story and maybe earn a goodie or two!

Happy Holidays!
