Two Bestselling Gay Romances From Carolina Valdez Now Available In Paperback

Today we're celebrating the paperback release of a collection of Gay Erotic Paranormal Romance from bestselling author Carolina Valdez.

Carolina warns not to be fooled by the photo. "Even if you walk most of the race, you want to be sure to break into a run for the camera." Although most of her running days have morphed into walking days, she's completed over a hundred distance races - six of them marathons. Her short story about a murder on the streets she's actually competed on, in the Los Angeles Marathon, appears in a Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles anthology.

After a varied career as a registered nurse while winning awards and making sales writing freelance, she decided to retire to finish her first novel. Now she writes about searing passions and the sweetly explosive ecstasies of love.


WHITE SHADOWS IN DARKNESS - An two story anthology from Carolina Valdez

When twilight deepens into nightfall, white shadows appear in the darkness - shadows created by strong men on whom nature has played a cruel trick. Each man reaches for acceptance and love despite the secret of the physical change he must endure when the moon is full and the world is dark.

Previously available only in electronic format, these best-selling novellas of Gay Erotic Romance have now been combined for a paperback edition! Included are the tales...


Life is perfect for Cade "Lakota" Montana. Barely into his twenties, he escaped the poverty, illness and drunkenness prevalent on the Montana reservation where he was raised when he agreed to manage an uncle's small spread in Wyoming. His relationship with Dr. Lee Donaldson, his lover, and the ranch's new veterinarian, is secure, and now Cade's proven even wild horses can be broken without pain to carry saddle and rider. A recognized horse whisperer, he's excited about his plans to teach his methods to others.

Into this good life, an inherited quirk in his Lakota Native DNA brings an inescapable horror that forever changes who and what he is. The penalty for revealing the secret of this new shift in his nature to anyone, even to Lee, is death, so Cade ends their affair with sudden, permanent abruptness.

Lee, confused and stunned by Cade's unexplained rejection and refusal to talk to or see him after the split, comes to terms with the end of their relationship by planning to sell his practice and move away.

If there is a solution for staying together, will either man be able to find it?


LAPD Detective Trent Edwards rents a house in a mountain community near the only reported sighting of his brother, who's disappeared without a trace. Martin Longhouse, who owns the local fitness center, takes Trent under his wing and introduces him to townspeople who might have seen his missing sibling. Soon, the lust that flares between the two men settles into something deeper.

But Trent doesn't know Martin has a secret, nor does he know exactly who lives in Little Grizzly Lake. Or who, and what, inhabits the woods at night.

When the secrets unravel, Trent discovers his rational cop's mind has a choice - let go of his love for Martin, or open himself up to other realities, other possibilities for his life...

A Heartwarming New Christmas Romance From Heidi Betts

Today we're celebrating the release of INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY, a new Silhouette Desire from Heidi Betts just in time for your holiday reading!

Bestselling, award-winning author Heidi Betts began her love affair with the romance genre in junior high school, where she used to sneak romance novels into study hall when she should have been doing her homework. It didn't take long to decide she wanted to write a few romances of her own, so she set out to do just that.

Her first book was released by Dorchester Publishing in 2000, with five more to follow. From there, Heidi moved into the contemporary arena by writing numerous category titles for Silhouette Desire, and recently she signed with St. Martin's Press to begin writing funny, sexy single titles.

With each new book, Heidi asks herself how she can bring to life endearing heroes and heroines whom readers will believe are meant for each other. And with each new novel to hit the stands, readers and reviewers alike declare she knows how to create a story that sizzles, charms, and delights from the first page to the last. Her first title for Silhouette Desire landed at #1 on the Waldenbooks/Borders Series Romance Bestseller List, where her books have continued to make an appearance ever since.

Heidi loves to read, write, watch movies (and just a little too much television), and surround herself with furry, four-legged friends in her home in the beautiful hills of Central Pennsylvania.

(Dynasties: The Jarrods - Book 6)
Holiday husband...and father?

This wasn't the type of Christmas present he'd been expecting. Trevor Jarrod - a daddy? Yet the enticing woman seated in his office claimed the Aspen businessman was the father of her baby nephew. Quick as he could say paternity test, Trevor discovered she was telling the truth. But just what did this revelation mean? The confirmed bachelor knew nothing about being a parent. And Haylie Smith wasn't about to hand off the precious infant to a complete stranger.

If Trevor really wanted to claim his unexpected heir, he had an important choice - head to court...or head to the altar!

The Devil strikes a bargain with God to keep two misfit brothers out of Hell; unfortunately the arduous task is more than even the Prince of Darkness can handle.

Unwilling to allow two rowdy brothers and their crazy acquaintances into Hell where he fears they may take over, the Devil strikes a bargain with God - keep the brothers out of trouble for three days and He'll consider letting them into Heaven.

The Prince of Darkness quickly realizes that trying to protect the raucous Dean Brothers is an arduous task as the brothers unwittingly lead Lucifer into their world where bar fights, free money and casual relationships are the norm.

Assigned by God to keep an eye on the goings-on, the Archangel Michael cannot help but be amused at Old Gooseberry's dogged determination to keep the Dean's out of his realm.

A Look At The Hidden History Of Salem, Massachusetts From Susanne Saville

Today we're celebrating the release of Susanne Saville's HIDDEN HISTORY OF SALEM.
Susanne enjoys caffeine - especially in coffee and tea, traveling, horseback riding, reading, and John Barrowman. Not necessarily in that order. She has a Master's Degree in History and a second Master's Degree in Library Science. The casual observer might suppose that this primarily qualifies her to dispense fries at fast-food restaurants. (Just kidding.)

Ms. Saville has worked as a Reference Librarian in California and as a History Instructor at Georgia Military College. She has also been interviewed by Dog Fancy as an expert on the pug dog's place in history. She currently resides in New England and, along with writing, delights in researching, spending quality time with her cats, and eating fries at fast-food restaurants.


There's more to Salem's history than witches.

Salem, nestled along the rocky coast of Massachusetts, has long been synonymous with witches. In this fascinating collection of stories, author Susanne Saville sheds light onto the forgotten moments of this noteworthy New England community. Discover Salem's profitable "Age of Sail," the important role coffeehouses played during the American Revolution, the scandalous life of Richard Crowninshield Jr. and the unforgettable writer Nathaniel Hawthorne. These revealing stories will not leave the history of Salem in the shadows for long.

Mark Jackman's New Sid Tillsley Book Is Now Available

Today we're celebrating the LL Publications release of A FISTFULL OF RUBBERS, book two in Mark Jackman's trilogy, The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

MARK JACKMAN is one of the most talented, exciting, and hilarious writers to explode onto the fiction scene in the 21st century,” was what Mark Jackman hoped to read in the papers last year. He also hoped to punch a shark and own a Ford 2.8i Capri. He hoped that with the release of The Great Right Hope his newly-found celebrity status would bring him fast women, hard drugs and liquor, and then slower, more understanding women. Instead he has had to be satisfied with The Great Right Hope making regular appearances on various lists with various rankings on the Bestseller List, such as in the Top 100 in the categories of Horror (Kindle), Parodies & Satire Horror, Humour (Kindle and Print). A Fistful of Rubbers is the second installment in the trilogy known as The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

HE has successfully installed a decking area into his garden.

VISIT Mark at where you’ll discover more of his wordy pursuits, blogs, science writing, and future plans for fiction...of which there are many.


A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS: Book Two of The Sid Tillsley Chronicles
By Mark Jackman

Middlesbrough’s favourite son Sid Tillsley is now a vampire-hunter, but even the coolest, most dangerous job in the world can’t get him a shag, forcing him into the more hazardous world of Internet dating. To make matters worse, the Human-Vampire Coalition has shut the local boozer forcing Sid and his friends to drink sub-standard ale!

But Sid has a fight coming. Something lurks in the shadows, or rather, the closet. A Northerner will punch anything in the face, but one thing he fears is a direct attack on his sexuality…and the Campire draws near.

Meanwhile, the psychotic vampire Gunnar Ivansey wants revenge. Sid hit Gunnar so hard in the nuts he’s never forgiven him. And with the death of vampire warlord Michael Vitrago, the floodgates are open for any vampire to enter Britain, the heart of the vampire nation, and wage war against humanity.

Can the Coalition prevent the vampire world from destroying mankind? Can Sid get lucky on the Internet? Can the Coalition use Sid to hunt Gunnar Ivansey? Can Sid find a decent pint? Does humanity have a chance if its only hope is Sid’s great right hook…and a fistful of rubbers?

Readers who haven’t read THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE (yet) won’t be left wondering or confused as Mark Jackman makes a seamless transition into this second instalment of the hilarious Sid Tillsley Chronicles. Amy J. Ramsey of Ramsey’s Book Reviews says, “A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is a cleverly crafted sequel to Jackman’s THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE. It contains everything a
vampire reader wants: action, adventure, humor, and most importantly, SHAGGING…(erm) slaying of all sorts. The ultimate vampire series. Howay the lads! A definite must read!”

Mark Jackman proudly presents The Sid Tillsley Chronicles as “the anti-Twilight” in response to what he sees as a downward spiral of the vampire genre. He explains that “Creatures of the night have slowly revolved through the years to creatures of the…posters of teenage girls. I don’t like that.”

A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is available in print and several ebook formats and can found at,, as well as many other print and ebook retailers.

Scott Benjamin's Debut Sci Fi Novel Now In Ebook And Print

Today we're celebrating Scott Benjamin's first novel, a science fiction adventure called THE MUSIC SEED.

Scott Benjamin is a well known antique collector and dealer of old service station items. He has co-authored 13 related books, which over the years have sold nearly 80,000 copies. Currently he publishes an international magazine called Petroleum Collectibles Monthly.

But, science fiction and music are what he enjoys most. Benjamin spent ten years in Los Angeles writing and recording music before moving back to his home town Elyria, Ohio. Growing up watching shows like Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Star Trek, and currently the hit show Fringe, led him to write THE MUSIC SEED, a novel about a young girl with extreme musical talents and two races of alien beings. "If it's weird I love to watch it!" he states.

Currently Benjamin resides in LaGrange, Ohio with his family.


THE MUSIC SEED by Scott Benjamin

A young, remarkably musically talented, 14 year old girl dying of cancer, her father, a special government agent, a strange visitor from another planet simply calling himself the Music Man and the four powerful beings who accompany him converge on Earth to thwart a pending attack in our future.

But can they do it in time?
Who can be trusted?
Will the young girl realize her destiny in time before she dies?
What will happen to Earth if she fails?
Why is all this related to only music?
What did a fifth airplane on 9/11 have to do with the young girl?
The Music Man has been sent here to Earth by four special beings. But why was he sent here and what does he know?
How can a 14-year-old girl save our planet?
What role does music play in this whole wild scenario?
What does the Music Man really know about planet Earth?

The Music Man and the powerful beings have deduced that planet Earth, on its current path of technology, has not even a faint chance of surviving the coming of the Mentones in the year 2683. The Mentones are an extremely advanced race of strange beings with an effective, yet sick way of harvesting planets to continue their species.

But the Music Man’s once simple mission becomes extremely complicated. The government blames the Music Man for misfortunes around the planet. The Mentones discover the Earth seed and set out to destroy it. Another powerful being, hidden eons ago, sides with the evil race of Mentones, as the Earth seed lies dying in a hospital. A genius inventor, a radical doctor and a NASA video surveillance specialist all become part of the now complex countdown.

So with the Music Man conducting a new evolution of music, a new technology using sound covering all aspects of the development and advancement of the human race, a chance to survive we may have. We just have to listen to the new music. We just have to listen to him. And we just have a little over 677 years to become prepared for the inevitable.

The only hitch is that in order to succeed, we must take the right path now.

Pulling off the ultimate con...if they can keep from pulling off their clothes.

ALL JACKED UP Rough Riders, Book 8 by Lorelei James

Keely McKay knows Jack - and Jack Donohue is a certified pain in her Wranglers. The lone girl in the prolific McKay family, Keely needs another man giving her orders like she needs a hole in her boot. What she does need is a restoration specialist so she can open her physical therapy clinic - and prove she's left her wild-child days behind. That means dealing with buttoned-down, uptight Jack.

Jack is this close to securing a career make-or-break project, until he learns his lack of marital status puts him out of contention. When the notoriously hot-tempered and hot-bodied Keely begs him for help, he proposes a crazy idea. He'll oversee her project - if she acts the part of his loving fiancee.

Their sizzling lust makes it all too easy to go from butting heads to knocking boots - but outside the bedroom they're as mismatched as ever. The McKays remind Jack of the humble upbringing he left behind, and cowgirl Keely feels she doesn't measure up to Jack's big-city lifestyle.

When the dust settles, Jack and Keely must face the fact they're not fooling anyone but themselves - or they'll risk losing the real deal.

Product Warnings: This book by Lorelei James contains one hot-blooded cowgirl and one cool-headed businessman in a stripped-down, revved-up game of sexual truth or dare.

In one gut-wrenching moment, Pillar was forced to make a life-or-death choice that left the entire city shaken and set a madman's plan into motion.

Rosemary Laurey's Bestselling Vampire Series Reissued in Paperback and eBook

Today we're celebrating the Kensington reissues of USA Today Best-selling author Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire Books, KISS ME FOREVER, LOVE ME FOREVER and BE MINE FOREVER.

Rosemary is an ex-pat Brit, retired special education teacher and grandmother who now lives in Ohio and has a wonderful time writing and letting her imagination run riot.

Her hobbies are vacuuming, dusting and cleaning toilets but regrettably the demands of her writing career leave little time to engage in these pursuits.


KISS ME FOREVER - The first book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire series.

If there is one thing Dixie LePage does not need in her life, it's complications. And the man sitting across the table from her in a crowded English pub is a major complication. For starters, there's the broad shoulders. The slightly amused smirk. That smoldering look that makes it impossible to concentrate. No doubt about it, the guy is hot and sexy. Of course, there is one wee little problem: He claims to be a vampire named Christopher Marlowe, as in The Christopher Marlowe, famous playwright, contemporary of Will Shakespeare. Amend that to hot, sexy, and totally insane.

So why can't Dixie seem to resist the warmth of Christopher's charm, the protective feel of his strong hands, or the tempting pull of his full mouth when the sun goes down...?


LOVE ME FOREVER by Rosemary Laurey

The second book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire Series is set in German Village in Columbus Ohio and is the story of physician/vampire Justin Corvus and a blue-collar single mother named Stella. Neither Justin nor Stella expected the attraction between them, nor could they anticipate the act of violence that puts Justin afoul of the vampire code he helped establish.

All single mother Stella Schwartz meant to do was let her son, Sam, browse through books at Dixie's Vampire Emporium. She hadn't counted on the shop assistant, Justin Corvis, being a dark-eyed super-hunk with the kind of charismatic English accent that would make her heart skip a beat. And she couldn't know how close to the truth that was. When Justin smiles at her, it's as if he's known her forever. And when he asks for her phone number - Stella can't help wanting the thrill to last for eternity. For there's something dangerously different about Justin Corvus...different and irresistible.


BE MINE FOREVER by Rosemary Laurey

The third book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire series, this tells the story of the two ghouls, and Angela and Tom's romance.

Tom Kyd has smouldering eyes, a sculpted body, and supernatural staying power - even for a vampire. He also thinks he knows best about everything - including how to figure out who Angela Ryan was before he and his clan rescued her from a mysterious attack that stole her memory. But whoever she is, Tom wants her...

Six months ago Angela never would have imagined her life would turn into an episode of Dark Shadows - or that she'd be saved by the kind of man she's always fantasized about. Tom may be a vampire, and a know-it-all, but when he kisses are so sinful, so intoxicating, and so damn good, Angela is tempted to say yes to whatever he wants.

Jacquelyn Frank's New Paranormal Shifter Romance Just Released

Today we're celebrating the release of DRINK OF ME, a sexy new paranormal from Jacquelyn Frank.

A native New Yorker, currently living in North Carolina, Jacquelyn Frank loves animals, specifically cats, to a point of insanity. She loves her boys like she would honest to goodness children.

This NYT and USA today bestselling author of The Nightwalkers Series wanted to be an author since she was barely into puberty. It was those sexy teen romances where the first kiss was as far as they went. Heh. She thought that was the be all and end all until she got her hands on an introductory copy for a new series launching called Loveswept and got her first taste of sizzle. She's been writing it and gobbling it up ever since!

Although she's branching out from the Nightwalkers, not to fear, they will always be a part of her. It's simply a matter of where the muse is taking her.


DRINK OF ME by Jacquelyn Frank

In a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma...

Drink of me, she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all.

But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end...In blood, in knowledge, in ecstasy.

William R Potter's First Jack Staal Mystery Now Available In Print Or eBook

Today we're celebrating the first book in William Potter's Jack Staal Mystery Series, DEAD OF KNIGHT.

William was bitten by the writing bug at an early age. Shortly after watching the first remake of King Kong, around the age of ten or eleven, he scribbled a few pages about a mutant crab and called it a book.

He discovered poetry in his teens and continues to write verse today. However, that kid's dream of writing a book never went away. In 2001 he decided to get serious about fiction and dabbled in short stories with some success. With his budding confidence, he attempted greater and greater word counts. Before long he had a collection of shorts and a novella that approached novel length. It was time, after waiting twenty-five years since that monstrous crustacean of his childhood; he attempted another novel in 2003 and finished the first draft just before Christmas 2004.

After he finished the first draft of his first novel, he decided to let the manuscript sit and cool. He wrote another novella and several shorts and then sat down to write a second novel in 2006. The novellas and shorts became his first book, the award winning collection, LIGHTING THE DARK SIDE - SIX MODERN TALES. DEAD OF KNIGHT is his first published novel.

When he's not writing he's reviewing books. William lives in New Westminster, Canada with his wife and two children.


Your next birthday could be murder.

DEAD OF NIGHT - A Jack Staal Mystery by William R. Potter

Believing he is a soldier of justice, a young man begins a callous campaign of terror, murdering women on their birthdays. Convinced of his righteousness, he continues his brutal crusade forcing the citizens of Hanson, B.C. to acknowledge a serial killer is active in their rural community. Detective Constable Jack Staal is anxious to work the biggest case of his career. Staal is forced to the outside when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Integrated Homicide Teams are assigned to the case. Not one to sit on the sidelines, Staal convinces his colleagues to follow his lead and pursue a serial killer who the media has dubbed “Birthday Boy.”

Told from the perspective of both killer and cop, DEAD of KNIGHT is a cat and mouse thriller sure to delight fans of Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta or Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch.

Available in print, e-book, and Kindle.
