Out of Her Dreams by Fran Lee
She's a best-selling erotic romance writer. Her fans adore her. She's making excellent money. All by writing about a man she dreamed up many years ago. Her hero is handsome, virile, sexy, strong, sensitive and a complete gentleman.
The real man on her covers is a different story. A hot-headed, sex-on-the-hoof pro wrestler. He has a reputation for being the hottest, nastiest man on the mats. The fact that his face and body are plastered all over a bunch of mushy romance novels written by a woman with a death wish doesn't sit well on those massive shoulders. His agent's demanding monetary retribution from the woman who's dared to use his image on her covers but he has another form of retribution in mind…and it has nothing to do with money.
Line: Moderne (contemporary)
ISBN: 9781419921247

Warrior's Release by Tea Trelawny
A medieval warrior returns from battle with one thought—to bed his bride. But on the brink of consummation, lightning strikes, imprisoning his lusty spirit in his own sword.
Eight centuries later, another lightning bolt releases him into modern-day war vet Collin Morgan. The warrior's hot blood not only cures Collin's war-induced impotence, it drives him to bed his former lover Gwen Gardner when they meet by chance at the medieval castle.
Collin broke Gwen's heart years ago and she resists his spirited seductions—at first. But when electrical storms give the ghost command of his body, Collin becomes a tantalizing seducer whose new techniques stir Gwen's desires beyond her control. She surrenders her body and her heart.
Line: Twilight (paranormal) with Medieval History settings
ISBN: 9781419922169

Heartless by Roxana Blaze
Though Heartless can be read as a stand-alone, begin the series with Breathless in order to learn the full impact of Nighthawk's incarnations.
Karma never felt so good, but there's a dangerous price to be paid for succumbing to temptation. Amid the volatile backdrop of WWII, Raoul Fortier, an on-the-run French Resistance fighter, has just been possessed by Nighthawk's spirit when he encounters armed, hot and handsome Kilian Rheinfeld in the Jura Mountains near the Swiss border. Lust and love bloom between the two men who realize they were lovers in another lifetime. But there's more to Kilian than meets the eye, and for Nighthawk, peril lurks ahead yet again in the form of bittersweet karma.
Line: Exotika (erotica) with elements of Paranormal, M/M sex and 20th Century History
ISBN: 9781419922404

Yes, the pirates are making us crazy too. Right now, we're looking into building a consortium to take legal action against them or to get law enforcement to prosecute them. The software and music industry have done it, and now it's time for publishing to do it. What makes me crazy is the way they attempt to justify stealing from authors and publishers. I heard an interview with a guy from the pirate party in Sweden that was just unbelieveable. We're also going to work on educating the public about how dangerous it can be to participate in this theft by downloading stolen books. We are learning that some of these pirate sites are also involved in phishing, identity theft and other cyber crimes. When we get going, we'll make an announcement here, so you'll be able to put your anger to good use.
