A New Historical Romance From Jean Hart Stewart

Today we're celebrating the release of Jean Hart Stewart's new historical romance, FOR LOVE IS NEW

Jean feels she’s very much a Californian although she was born in Ohio. California has been home for a good many years. Life changed drastically for her when she was six and her father died incredibly from an errant golf ball. A dishonest insurance agent forced her sheltered mother to seek work, and she became a teacher. Her hours required Jean to be alone in the house in the afternoon, and since she was forbidden to leave till her mother got home, she became an avid reader. The local library supplied most of the books and she developed early her two of main interests, Jane Austen and King Arthur.

Reading is still one of her favorite activities, although she sometimes has to push it aside to make room for her enduring love of writing. Her journalism degree was used infrequently until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised she finally could devote her time to writing, her first love.

Jean's enchantment with the lore and legends of Druids and, therefore, delving into their history led to fascinating research that inspired her popular
Garland of Druids Series for Cerridwen Press. She's now enjoying writing stories filled with magic and romance for her Songs of the Mages Series, also for Cerridwen Press.

Few things in her life have been so satisfying, especially when all her books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Who would want to deny him? Not Jean!


FOR LOVE IS NEW by Jean Hart Stewart - Book Two in her Historical Romance Series

Lord Christian Cherne leaves the army after being wounded. Obligated to offer his protection to Lady Juliet Sloan he calls on her, only to find Captain Gullis sitting and smirking in her parlor. Since Christian knows of Gullis' cruelty, and suspects him of being a spy, he's alarmed.

Soon Christain finds his whole world in danger. He must protect Juliet from cruelty and also expose Gullis as a spy for Napoleon. Juliet and Christian face a monster out to destroy the world.

Can even love triumph over malicious evil?

Marie Treanor's Psychic Seductions Novellas Now In A Paperback Collection

Today we're celebrating a new paperback anthology containing three of Marie Treanor's Psychic Seductions novellas.

Marie was born and bred in Scotland, but for some years moved around the UK working and studying. Now she's back home and happily married with three young children.
Having grown bored with city life, her family lives in a picturesque village by the sea where, instead of working for a living, Marie is lucky enough to be able to enjoy herself writing stories of romance and fantasy.

She draws the inspiration for her books mainly from the people around her and from Scotland's rich history and culture - with, of course, large helpings of fun and imagination!


SEDUCING SCOTS - Marie Treanor's three Psychic Seductions novellas Now in Paperback from Ellora's Cave - Contains Hunting Karoly, Guitar Man and Freeing Al.

You're not meant to fall for the bad guy, are you? Not the vampire, nor the possessed, nor the ex-con...

Reluctant Scottish psychic Jenny discovers her true talent is hunting vampires. Yet when that vampire is the evil, sexy gorgeous Karoly, in his quite inappropriate antique kilt, will she be able to fulfill her potential?

Ellie is a strong psychic with a messy personal life. When she decides to clean up the latter, the last person she needs to encounter is carefree Scottish busker Chris, the best ever one night stand from her naughty past. Especially when something evil within him threatens them both.

When the vampiress Draguta, Karoly's ex, comes to the Scottish Highlands with a social mission, she's distracted by local pub landlord, Al MacNab - a large, sexy man with a dubious past, a lot of secrets, and some alluring bondage gadgetry in his cellar.

A New Erotic Vampire Thriller From Jason Daniel Kowalczyk and Liliana West

Today we're celebrating the release of THE LIGHTHOUSE, a new erotic horror thriller in Jason Daniel Kowalczyk in his Blood Companion Series written by Jason and Liliana West.

Jason was born in Lorain, Ohio, to Jeanne Furci (now Wysocki) and Stanley John Kowalczyk (1942-2009), grew up in Lehigh Acres, Florida, then Long Beach, California, and returned to Florida to finish High School. He currently resides in Moberly, Missouri with his fiance, Melissa, and her son from a previous relationship, Alex..

For thirty years he lived in Florida, writing as a hobby until he moved to Missouri. His first book, "The Blood Companion," was finally finished in 2007. He later slammed into overdrive and belted out several within the next three years.

Jason has been a writer for almost his entire life. He writes his tales as if he were sitting on the couch together with his readers, having a conversation. Writing the way he does has opened him up to a lot of criticism in his chosen career, but whenever he begins to think about changing his style, he'll get a phone call or an email from a reader telling him how much he or she loved his work and wondering when the next book will be along.

So no matter what happens or how small or large his fan base becomes, Jason will always be grateful for the fans he has and will strive to entertain them every chance he gets.

"Jay is one of the best story-tellers I know. He has a way of painting a picture with his words that really draws you in. He has a vivid imagination and is an open person who always wears his heart on his sleeve."-Melissa Tetreault-


THE LIGHTHOUSE by Jason Daniel Kowalczyk and Liliana West

"Jason Daniel Kowalczyk brings in Liliana West to help stain your nightmares with The Lighthouse."

For Volume 6 of the Blood Companion, Liliana West and Jason Daniel Kowalczyk come together to tell the horrifying tale of the Lighthouse that haunted the pages of "The Blood Companion" series. From the beginning, where Jullien Froste sells his soul in order to feed his family, to the truth of the very end. Definitely not for readers who are not mature or easily offended.
