Some New Print Releases From JMS Books

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're spotlighting some of the December releases from JMS Books!

DAVID AND ANDREW BOOK 1: ONE NIGHT IN DECEMBER by Terry O'Reilly

David Bennett is a widower. He had a wonderful relationship with his wife, but now she's gone. He decides he's done with relationships -- he has no sex drive and no interest in life in general.

Andy Barnes is a homeless man who often stands at the end of an exit ramp begging for help. For some unfathomable reason, David is always tempted to pick him up on his way home. One wretched night in December, fate intervenes and David finds himself bringing the man home and into his life.

Much to his surprise, he begins to fall in love with this down and out young man. As love returns, David realizes he does have a reason to go on with life after all.

Over the next few years, the two face life as a partnered gay couple with humor and courage. Each year brings with it happiness, tragedy, joy, and sorrow; the stuff life is made of. Along the way, the love the two share for each other helps them to overcome all obstacles and face all challenges.

BERGDORF BOYS by Scott Alexander Hess

When Neal Tate, a just-out-of-rehab NYC party columnist, falls for Dewalt, a Harlem drug dealer he meets at a gay bathhouse, he discovers that navigating an honest relationship is a lot more difficult than chasing down the perfect pair of skinny jeans.

Neal finds support from his fashion-loving friends: Rovvy, a blond boy-toy married to Andres Palamos, the shady millionaire owner of Pop magazine where Neal works; Nick, “It-boy” style writer for the New York Times whose fab job and rich hubby are smothering his desires to design; and Annie, straight-girl art director at Pop who gives Neal’s life a smidge of balance.

The success of Neal’s "Bergdorf Boy" column and his growing love for Dewalt lead him to question his capacity for intimacy and his obsessive commitment to both the latest trend and anonymous sex, and to wonder if a monogamous gay marriage could be in the cards.

These Bergdorf boys hop from Madison Avenue shopping sprees to Fire Island photo shoots, dipping their manicured toes into the dizzy underside of the gay nightlife scene hunting for lust, love, and designer must-haves.

First, they all need to face reality and confront their tragic pasts. Soon Ruckus realizes that if Apple doesn't drive him totally nuts, she just may help restore his sanity.

MAINTENANCE! by J.M. Snyder

Though maintenance man Elliot has a list of work orders a mile long, he decides to knock out one of the easier jobs right before lunch -- an upper floor apartment has a leak in the A/C's condensation line. It'll take five minutes to blow through, then Elliott can take a break.

When he arrives at the apartment, he finds the female tenant in the shower. He debates coming back later, but he's already there and wants to get the job over with as soon as possible. He's halfway finished, too, when the bathroom door opens and there stands Donnie -- very wet, very naked, and definitely very male.

Suddenly Elliott wants to blow something other than an A/C line.



NECROMANCER & CO. by David Stroup


In the city of Sylian Tul, licensed necromancer Ander Waeryn has his hands full.

His wife's family -- one of the most powerful of the ancient Armiger clans -- just want their wayward daughter to come to her senses and return to the family estate. As an Aelf, Ander isn’t even supposed to have been allowed to study magic, much less a dodgy specialty like necromancy. And it’s harder every day to make a living in the slums of the soot-stained, steam-powered capital of the human-run empire.

Then his latest paying commission goes horribly wrong, and suddenly the Metropolitan Investigation Office’s only Consulting Necromancer is in the middle of a case that has the city ready to boil over. As mobs take to the streets and the city’s press -- led by Ander's ex-lover -- fan the flames, Ander is torn between an investigation the police won’t allow to proceed ... and a horror from the past that shouldn’t exist.

Will Anna be able to win their love and trust before it's too late?

Fun games and prizes at the hottest place on the Web!

WEDDING BELLES by Desiree Holt, Cerise DeLand and Allie Standifer

SOMETHING OLD

Brina hates weddings almost as much as she hates being a bridesmaid. There she runs into Adair, the man who left her at the whim of his family.

Adair made a mistake letting Brina go, but he’s back now. He has no intention of letting the woman he loves walk away without a fight or a night of soul-melting lovemaking to show just how right they are together.

Will a night of blistering passion be enough to convince Brina Adair’s back for good? Or will she let the past ruin her future. Either way only one thing is certain. Something old has never looked or felt so good.

SOMETHING NEW

Raine Fortunato tells herself that the mother of the bride should not drool over the younger, hunky, best man. Buff, blond, vagabond Scott McCoy should not be the something new she yearns for. Right?

But Scott sees his opportunity. Enticing slinky, sexy Raine to get wet and wild with him needs to happen. ASAP. The night before the wedding. So when he offers her the key to his room and she risks unlocking her craziest fantasies about him, she discovers in his arms earth-shattering climaxes and soul-searing intimacy.

Time now for Raine to decide if something new can be something more.

SOMETHING BORROWED

Zoe Fortunato was getting married to the man of her dreams. Right? Wasn’t Brad everything she’d ever wanted? Then why did she invite her old boyfriend to the wedding and daydream about threesomes she’d had in the past?

When Brad McCoy, the hunky groom, asks her why she’s so edgy the night before the wedding, she digs up the courage to tell him. She wants one last fling with Clay. And him. Both of them bringing her to orgasm every way possible. But will Clay agree to be “borrowed”?

SOMETHING BLUE

Clay Holbrook was still recovering from his wedding-eve threesome with the bride and groom, depressed that he might never find the happiness Zoe and Brad had. But when bridesmaid Kristen Jayne sidles up to him at the bar, every hormone in his body screams to get her naked as fast as he can.

During the long hours of the night they indulge in an endless, hot, erotic adventure, each using the wild monkey sex to cloak their inner sadness. But with daylight comes reality. Can they take what they’ve found past the rumpled bed sheets and into a life together?

TURN UP THE HEAT by Desiree Holt and Allie Standifer

SCORCHED
Kasey Jacobs spends her days as a bookkeeper for a discount furniture store and her nights writing erotic romances, still waiting to meet the man who could ring her chimes. Maybe her new neighbor, Skyler Brody… Too bad she hasn’t seen him since the day he moved in.

Then Skyler, a cop recuperating from a gunshot wound, spies Kasey pleasuring herself in front of an open window and nearly trips over his tongue rushing to introduce himself. The sex is instantaneous and hot, with all the explosiveness of fireworks.

But Kasey wants something Skyler isn’t prepared to give. Perhaps they can find a way to each other’s heart—if they don’t burn themselves out with their nightly erotic activities.

SCALDED

Reed Brody is head of the geek squad for the local police. At work, he’s intense and driven; after hours, he can’t help but use that same drive in his sex life. Too bad he can’t find a woman interested in a few bondage games.

Halli Wilson is a quiet coffee shop owner who also hosts sex-toy parties on the side. Too bad she can’t find a guy man enough to tie her up and take her down.

Halli only bargained for a month. Reed’s never wanted forever. Two people determined to keep it light make the biggest mistake of all by falling in love.

SINGED

River Brody knows love exists, but every woman he dates seems to be lacking that special spark. Until he attends an engagement party for his brothers and sees the woman of his dreams.

Kendra Jacobs is coming out of a bad relationship. When she sees River, Kendra thinks he may just be the guy to try her new wiles on. As long as she leaves before he does.

After spending one memorable night together, River knows he’s found the one person he’s meant to spend the rest of his life with. However, convincing Kendra proves far from easy.

STEAMED

Kira Jacobs is sick of always being the bridesmaid, never the bride. Sick of dating hot studs who have no more depth than the water in her sink. She’s determined to find a lasting meaningful relationship with a mature, suit-wearing man. But her goofy, stay-at-home neighbor sends her all kinds of hot signals.

Grant Havers left the high finance rat race after having a heart attack at thirty-eight. He’s done with living up to everyone’s expectations but his own. It’s time to go after what he wants. What he wants most is sexy Kira. He’s convinced her to try him out in bed, but she’s determined to leave it as sex only.

Sarah spent years scribbling in notebooks, filling the pages with partial chapters and the margins with titles and story ideas. She told friends that the characters spoke to her, and that she was compelled to get their stories on paper. Eventually, she sat down at a computer and wrote her first tale of dangerously sexy suspense. That book, Not Without Risk, was nominated for Long and Short of It's Best Book 2010.

Sarah lives in West Michigan with her husband, two sons and three miniature schnauzers. Between mom's taxi service, parts runs, and answering the phone for the family marine repair business, Sarah can be found curled in her favorite chair, crafting her next novel.

AFTER MIDNIGHT by Sarah Grimm

Can music heal a fractured soul?

Thirteen years - that's how long Isabeau Montgomery has been living a lie. After an automobile accident took her mother's life, Izzy hid herself away, surviving the only way she knew how. Now she is happy in her carefully reconstructed life. That is until he walks through the door of her bar...

Black Phoenix singer/front man Noah Clark came to Long Island City with a goal--one that doesn't include an instant, electric attraction to the dark-haired beauty behind the bar. Coaxing her into his bed won't be easy, but he can't get her pale, haunted eyes nor her skill on the piano out of his head.

Can Noah help Isabeau overcome the past? Or will her need to protect her secret force her back into hiding and destroy their chance at happiness?

A New Release In Alexandra Kane's Phoenix Files

All day today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Alexandra Kane's brand new release EMBRACE THE NIGHT, the second book in her sexy paranormal series The Phoenix Files.

A woman, a mother, a wife, and a self-proclaimed Southern Belle, Kianna Alexander (also writing as Alexandra Kane) may not be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but she can write a tall tale in a single sitting. Born and raised among the pine trees of North Carolina, Kianna has always been a voracious reader. Cereal boxes, billboards, and other unconventional sources fed her unquenchable appetite for the written word. Soon, as she entered adolescence, Kianna realized that she enjoyed writing the words as much as she enjoyed reading them.

First, Kianna tried her hand at poetry, but upon discovering it to be both sappy and crappy, she moved on to plays. That was short lived, as writing those darn stage directions was both boring and maddening! Soon she discovered that prose, and romance in particular, is where it's at.

Writing African American and Interracial romance, in the sub genres of romanctic suspense, historicals, and paranormal romance as both Kianna Alexander and Alexandra Kane, she also dabbles in young adult romance.

Two Young Children+ One Husband+ Freelance Daytime Career+ Fiction Writing= A Very Busy Lady!

Celebrating Two Vampire Releases For Heidi Betts

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of  MUST LOVE VAMPIRES a brand new release from Heidi Betts and the mass market release of Heidi's THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

National bestselling author HEIDI BETTS loves all things scary and paranormal...though she's not a big fan of things that go bump in the night. (Hello! Sleeping, here.) When she's not writing about vampires (among other things), she often dreams of being an undead creature of the night - if only so that she can sleep all day, stay up all night, and never age another minute or gain another pound. The drinking of blood doesn't necessarily appeal, but it's something she thinks she could get used to. Plus, she hears it tastes like chicken.

For news, information about upcoming books, and tons of mischievous fun, visit Heidi online at heidibetts.com  and heidibetts.com/WIPSandChains .


MUST LOVE VAMPIRES by Heidi Betts

Love At First Bite

Nightclub dancer Chloe Lamoureaux just met the man of her dreams: Aidan Raines is charming, considerate, rich, and hot. Of course, he's a little mysterious about his age. And his favorite drink. And he's not much for sunlight. But he's asked her to marry him, and she's ready to do it. Sure, she has a few secrets too - but they'll have plenty of time to work things out while they're living happily ever after. Right?

Her identical twin sister, Chuck, isn't so sure. Maybe reporting for the local Bigfoot-sighting tabloid doesn't make her an expert, but to Chuck, Aidan and his brother Sebastian look like honest-to-Dracula vampires. Especially Sebastian: beguiling, seductive, and just a hint of dangerous. Maybe she wouldn't mind him taking a little taste. But with Chloe's life in the balance, she has to know - do they want hot love or hot blood? Or maybe...a little of both?


And don’t miss...
ONE LAST BITE (an epilogue to Must Love Vampires)

The tantalizing happily-ever-after finale to the story of Sebastian and Charlotte, Aidan and Chloe, available as a free e-book download.

THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Heidi Betts

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Vampires...

Vampires turn to fanged and fabulous matchmaker extraordinaire Angelina Ricci to help them find that special someone to curl up with under the mistletoe in this charming (read: sexy) and delightful (read: funny) holiday collection by national bestselling author Heidi Betts. Because vampires need love, too. (Biting optional. Hot sex guaranteed.)

"All I Vant For Christmas"

Millionaire vampire Connor Drake loves trimming the tree, baking gingerbread cookies, and hanging the mistletoe for Christmas, but his Goth and gloomy vampire siblings won't have anything to do with it. Enter Angelina, who sends party planner Jillian Parker to the rescue. But when Jillian - who's mortal -discovers that she's decking the halls for a family of vampires, will she run...or will Connor have a beautiful woman to share the holidays with?

"A Vampire in Her Stocking"

When Vivian learns that her secret crush, Sean, is terminally ill, she is heartbroken. Confiding in her matchmaking friend, Angelina recommends the obvious - give Sean eternal life by turning him into a vampire, too. But when Vivian refuses, Angelina decides to play Santa (with a side of Cupid) and changes Sean for her, leaving him wrapped in a bright red bow on Vivian's doorstep...

"It's A Wonderful Bite"

Although Angelina is happy with her longtime lover, Ian, she's ready for a commitment. After drinking eggnog and watching It's a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve for the (literally) four millionth time, Angelina falls into a dream where she is mortal, and Ian is involved with someone else. Talk about the nightmare before Christmas! But Santa must have checked his list twice, because this Christmas, Angelina's wishes are about to come true...
