It honestly feels like Iíve been waiting years to tell you about my
new release MODEL
MARINE. In actuality itís only been one year, but Iím so excited about this
book. My Marine, Captain William Hughes, is pretty much my idea of the perfect
guy. Heís honest, forthright and believes in doing the right thing. The fun if
the story comes in the way of fashion designer Hannah Harrington. Sheís
surrounded by chaos, which throws a kink in his well-ordered world. This is one
of my favorite love stories Iíve ever written.
Love is most definitely in the air. I have tons of new books to tell you about
Kristen Painterís FLESH AND BLOOD is the second book in her new House of Comarre
series. "Book two meant ramping up everything," Painter says. "By everything I
mean the tension between the hero and heroine, the danger they were in, the
conflicts between some of the minor characters, the threat of the villain
— basically, I turned it up to eleven and added more cowbell.
Susan Meier's newest is KISSES ON HER CHRISTMAS LIST. "The inspiration
for the book wasn't a person or an event, but a department store," says
Meiers. "Glosser Brothers in Johnstown always smelled like candy and roasted
peanuts. In the holiday season it was dressed up in tinsel and garland, with
mechanical Santas and elves in the windows and oversize Christmas ornaments
hanging from the ceiling. We lost the store over a decade ago, but I still miss
it every December. So I decided to write a story with the store as the
background, to give readers a peek at one of my most fond memories.
Virginia Kantra has a lovely Christmas tale to share with
readers. "Somehow nothing takes the edge off too much time at the mall like
curling up with a Christmas story," she says. "Some of the first romances I
read were the Signet Regency Christmas collections. So when my editor asked if
I would consider doing a Christmas story, my answer was a resounding "yes!!!"
I'd planned on expanding the world of my Children of the Sea to include more
about the fallen Children of Air. Christmas and angels? What could be more
perfect? But my love of those Regency romances, with their house parties and
kissing boughs and Christmas bells, snuck into my contemporary paranormal
world. The result is Upon a Midnight Clear, one of the sweetest stories
I think I've written.
I hope readers will agree! The story is a part of the TIED WITH A BOW Anthology
with Lora Leigh, Eileen Wilks and Kimberly Frost.
Gina Robinson has a new series of books beginning with THE SPY WHO LEFT
ME. "Emmett's the head of National Clandestine Services," says
Robinson, "the spying arm of the CIA. He masterminds of all the missions in my
books, and he's a matchmaker whose sole goal is national security. Well, he
won't admit to more. But I think he's a romantic at heart and likes to see his
spies happy. If I could actually meet him, I'm afraid I'd be a little nervous.
I mean, the man can be devastatingly good looking when he wants to be, and
charming. Or cold and lethal. He's licensed to kill and the quintessential
liar, after all. And sadly, I think he'd outwit me in conversation. But think
of the stories he could tell me, assuming he didn't have to kill me afterward.
I'd never have to plot another one of my spy books again, just record his
