Lord Grayson’s Bride

A Scrolls of Cridhe novella
She can’t allow his love for her to destroy him…
When Nicholas Spencer, Earl of Grayson, returns to claim the
woman he loves, Lady Josephine Knightly isn’t willing to forgive him for abandoning
her six years ago. But neither can she resist the man he’s become.
Two days after Josephine signs the marriage contract she discovers
a nasty secret that will destroy her family. The only way to protect them—to protect
the only man she’s ever loved—is to disappear…or die.
Nicholas won’t make the same mistake twice and let Josephine
Knightly go. She loves him. He felt it in their one kiss before he left, and in
the single kiss she allowed since his return. But she’s doing everything in her
power to sabotage the marriage even before it’s begun. Nicholas doesn’t care. If
Hell is where he must live to have her, then she must stand by his side in the fire.
Lord Grayson’s Bride is part of The Scrolls of Cridhe: Volume
1, Highland Winds bundle. These are seven brand new Scottish romance novellas by
seven best selling authors. The bundle will be available for preorder November 1

The Highlander’s Improper Wife

The Highlander’s Improper Wife 
A proper young lady should
never attend a Masque…Aphrodite is no lady.
Betrothal to the callous Lord Blackhall painted a future devoid
of love. Upon his death, Lady Caroline Wilmont is promised to the younger brother.
Caroline refuses to allow her first taste of desire to be at the hands of a man
who would rather have any woman but her. This, her last night of freedom, is to
be a memory of lust that she can take with her throughout her loveless marriage.
As Aphrodite, Caroline attends a masque determined to find a man to initiate her
into the intimacies of erotic love.
Taran Robertson, Viscount of Blackhall, makes no secret that
he despises his obligation to marry the Sassenach heiress chosen for him by his
father. As a last foray before his wedding, he attends a masque. However, the spirited
vixen he meets and seduces has secrets…secrets that just may reveal he’s to have
an improper wife.

Breaking The Rules  

5 Easy Questions is an interview is designed to be quick,
easy, and fun. Today’s guest is Melinda Curtis.

What is your go-to meal
to order when you dine out? Your favorite “I know it will hit the spot”
Chicken, apple, walnut, gorgonzola salad.
Who is your “book
boyfriend”? You know, that hottie you read about and drool over.
My latest preoccupation is with Cyrus Jones from The Hot Zone
(Jayne Castle). Take some sexy, add some paranormal and I’m in!
What were you like when
you were in school?
Will my kids read this? I should probably talk about elementary
school. I was a model student, of course.
Would you rather stay
inside and watch snow falling, or get out in it and build a snowman?
I’m inside, drinking wine in front of the fire and reading a
good book.
What is your favorite
“Don’t strive for perfection when good will do.” As
a writer, you try to write fresh, but sometimes it’s okay to type ‘he said.’

About the Book

be an understatement. The Gordons have been on a roller coaster of love and lust,
but can’t seem to get on the same page at the same time. This power couple needs
a time-out to find their happily ever after. And life coach to Hollywood’s rich
and powerful, Cora Rule, has just the solution – have the couple sign their divorce
papers in a safe room…and lock them inside.
