A redneck vampire? Hell yeah!

What's a good old country boy vampire supposed to do when a smartass city-slicker female barrels into his life and totally disrupts it? What's wrong with hunting deer—with a rifle—for their blood, having a bushy beard, drinking beer out of Mason jars and sleeping in the bathtub? And what's wrong with his name? He was named after his grandfather. Rusty Nipple is a fine name.

Amber arrives at her late aunt's quiet farm planning to write her vampire romance, only to find a man in her bathtub—a dead man. Only he's not dead. Well, sort of not dead. What more could a romance writer ask for but her very own vampire hero? He'll be able to tell Amber things about vampires no other author could ever find out. Her book will skyrocket to the top of the bestseller lists! But how is she supposed to write about a suave, sexy, debonair vampire if Rusty won't cooperate?

"I was publicly flogged.""
--Karnar Langford

When Dayton Stewart buys a home in a Toronto neighborhood, he thinks his life can’t get any better…until he meets Simon Tate, his gorgeous new neighbor. Add Simon’s friend Mateo to the mix and sparks fly.

In Simon’s mind, being neighborly involves something other than homemade cookies or a dinner invitation. It means a threesome in the parlor and some quality time in the old, stone-walled bondage basement.

A wall web, a step stool, floggers and lube. All the accoutrements of kinky sex can be found in Simon’s play space, and Simon and Mateo are more than happy to show Dayton the ins and outs of the equipment. After all, they’re just being neighborly.

Anchor and Storm

Edgar Armstrong, Earl of Callander, had not given much thought to marrying and producing an heir…until he meets Emily Sinclair. When their easy companionship grows into love, they learn that Edgar's progressively debilitating disease could be passed on to his children. As their joy turns to despair Edgar finds a solution. If he can't get her with child he knows just the man who can. But will Emily agree to his plan?

Angus MacNeill, Lord Callander's groom, thinks Emily married Edgar for his title, his money and the security he can give her. And when Edgar approaches him with a very unusual request Angus questions his master's motives. Still, it doesn't stop him from accepting Callander's terms — it's the only way he can be with Emily, even if only until she conceives.

Deeply in love with Edgar, Emily will do anything he asks of her. But she never suspected he'd ask something like this! Despite Edgar's reassurances she worries that his plan could destroy their marriage rather than strengthen it. And when she makes her choice, Emily wonders if there's room enough for two men in her heart — and in her bed.

Several months ago she gave herself to him, body and soul, during a night of sexual enlightenment that changed her world forever. But since then, Lady Elizabeth Wentworth has reached a decision she believes is right for her. And her erstwhile lover, Sir Spencer Marchwood, isn't part of it. She hasn't forgotten him; how could she? He took her from innocent girl to sensual woman in a night of extraordinary delights. Such memories cannot be denied, only buried, relegated to her past as the private indiscretions of a foolish and impetuous girl. Spence is upset. He's plagued by memories of their passion, hungry for the taste of her lips and eager to hear her cries of pleasure once more. And it looks like that's not going to happen ever again. He hatches a strategy to get Elizabeth's attention and land her back in his arms—naked. Once that occurs, Spence knows he can take her to the edge of madness and beyond. It all comes down to one pivotal moment…the moment of Lady Elizabeth's choice.

Ms. Nobody


Bust magazine is running a story about a recent study by Indiana University Center for Survey Research that says over 70% of Americans think a woman should take her husband's name when she marries. HALF of the respondents think it should be required! I've never completely understood why women are so eager to change their names, but I don't condemn it. I am stunned and appalled, however, that half the people in this country in the 21st century think women should have to change their names when they marry. Makes me wonder what other things people think women should relinquish to matrimony. It confirms a sneaking suspicion I have about the popularity of Mad Men. Sure, the style looks fabulous, but I have a hunch there's a lot of nostalgia going on for men who long for the days when guys had three-martini lunches while their secretaries in big, pointy bras did the actual work and made maybe one-tenth of the men's salaries.

Kate and Bryan are co-workers and good friends despite their twelve year age difference. When Kate can’t stop her overactive imagination from putting them together in every sweaty, naked fantasy situation possible, she fears that lack of sex and middle age have finally warped her brain.

Forced to spend the night together in a cabin, reality mirrors fantasy when the sex can't be soon enough or hard enough. Bryan makes it clear that he will be the man to fulfill all Kate’s wildest desires.

From a quickie in a tiny supply room, to a whip and restraints in her own bedroom and finally three-way play that leaves no entrance unclaimed, Kate discovers confidence and a sense of self that she never dreamed possible.

A book in the Saurellian Federation series.

Admiral Saul Darius is a warrior, trained to fight and take what he wants—and he intends to possess the lush, sensual woman he's spotted in the arena stands.

The last thing Master Engineer K'rilla d'Pecoraio wants is a lifemate. But when a battle-hardened gladiator claims her as his erotic prize, she finds herself in a war of her own—surrender to his will or fight to save the world she holds so dear. She's on his ship, at his mercy, completely under his power…

Or so he thinks.

Heiress Loretta Shaw is notorious for her loose morals and sexual needs. Trouble is, it's taken her one too many one-night stands to realize that no man can extinguish the sexual fire she feels toward her guardian, Cray Diamond.

A long-ago curse made Cray immortal—a gargoyle, a guard

ian, who is impelled to protect a human chosen by the curse. He is imprisoned in stone during daylight hours but dusk returns him to flesh and bone to carry out his immortal duty.

That Cray can shift between human and l

iving gargoyle at night bothers Loretta not one bit. She's seen him naked many times and her desire for him—in any shape or form—knows no bounds. She's tired of his resistance. He's her gargoyle…and she wants him in her bed.
