A Regency and a sci-fi for your reading pleasure.
Fifth in the Heiress series
Abigail Lydden, widow of Francis, Lord Lydden, left America for England in the middle of the war of 1812 because her husband's father had died and her son was now heir to an earldom. Sir Arthur St. Eyre was also taken by surprise by Lord Lydden's death, finding himself executor of the earl's estate. Sir Arthur and Lady Lydden are thrown together and find it an attractive association, which becomes more and more intense when Victor's and Abigail's lives are threatened. But those threats are not the only problems. Sir Arthur is a Member of Parliament and eager for a British victory in America. Although British by birth, Abigail sympathizes mainly with "poor little America", as a victim of Britain's armed power. The heat of contention only adds to the heat of attraction, but can Sir Arthur allow Abigail the independence she needs—and can he forgive her when he discovers she has committed treason? Accusation and enlightenment explode family ties, leaving Arthur and Abigail to reorder their lives… if they can.

Two great stories in one paperback at a Special Sale Price!

All Night Videos by Sahara Kelly
For Research Purposes Only

He's rich, handsome and at the top of his game. Unfortunately for Jack Foster, the "game" is played in the world of adult movies and he's tired of it. Awards, fame, where he's better known as "Big John Johnson" and the cachet of being the most respected producer in his field have come to mean little to Jack, who prepares himself to suffer through yet another endless promotional appearance filled with plastic-enhanced women and meaningless conversation. When he meets Daphne Littlewood, however, he's in for a surprise. Daphne has an almost-completed thesis in her bag and research questions in her head. She doesn't know Jack, in the literal or figurative sense. She's simply dropping by this uncomfortably sexual establishment to find out about the current level of adult material available to the public. An interested helping hand from the handsome man in the adult video store takes her out of her everyday life and into places she'd never imagined. Some of her questions are answered, but still more are posed.

At Cross Purposes

She's blonde, beautiful and possessed of a body that won't quit. The name "Bambi" fits with her undercover assignment in an adult video store. Clearly her real name — Detective Barbara Fremont — won't get her very far in her bootleg DVD investigation. Especially when she decides to check out that suspiciously good-looking guy behind the register. Inspector Lou Franconi watches the blonde hooker with more than professional interest. Her smile puts a twist in his boxers in spite of her choice of occupation. If he wasn't working undercover as a temporary adult video store manager while pursuing a bootleg DVD investigation… A typical failure to communicate forces Lou and Barbara into an uneasy collaboration as they pursue their case through the very public sexual world of porn. And the very private sexual world their association creates between the two of them. It's not long before they realize they may not be working at cross purposes after all.

Sebastian isn't sure what to think when his female best friend propositions him. He's already resigned himself to a friends-only relationship with Bailey despite his long-held desires for more. Sebastian is more than willing to turn up the heat as long as the headstrong beauty understands he'll be defining the terms of their new relationship.

Aurora's Promise by Eve Jameson
Book 4 in the Ilyrian Destiny series
Connyn has finally gotten his royal hands on his mate—a brown-eyed, smart-mouthed vixen with a stubborn streak he's looking forward to taming in and out of bed. After he uses his magic to secretly watch her bring herself to a powerful climax, he claims her as his own through the Mating Rite, binding her body to him through submission and ecstasy. Having hunted her through years and worlds, he'll do anything to fulfill the destiny he's been denied until now. He doesn't waste time winning her heart or explaining her place in Ilyria before he possesses her, confident she'll willingly offer up her heart and trust eventually. But Aurora is guarding secrets that will shake the very foundations of Connyn's world and though her body might be his to command, her heart is guarded by a promise she's determined to honor. Ultimately, all he has ever lived for will be the price required to keep the mate who has captured his soul.
Publisher Note: While this book can be read as a single story, a richer experience will be found by reading the first three in this series first.

Soulless by Robin Leigh Miller
Alone and on the run from the law, Quinn Hurst does her best to fulfill her family's legacy of slaying Tulpas—thought forms, soulless beings created by humans. Her self-imposed exile is interrupted when she runs into a handsome Tulpa slayer who sparks a deep need she can't deny. Sexy Garen Snyder makes her blood boil and her body ache for his touch. Discovering they shared a past-life love affair only fuels the fire that rages when they come together. Fate is determined to separate them once again. A bloodthirsty demon wants Quinn for himself and will stop at nothing to possess her, but Garen already possesses her, body and soul, and will fight to save her. The demonic struggle is easy compared to the battle he must wage against Quinn's past. Using his only weapons—his love and his body—Garen makes one last attempt to keep her forever.
