Rancher Jase Carlson doesn’t understand the ache in the hollow
of his chest, since his ex-wife ripped his heart out. She doesn’t follow the court
rules where his children are concerned, making him even more pissed off. Harboring
a bad attitude, he wishes he wasn’t a gentleman when he comes to the aid of a quick-tempered,
sexy blonde. He can’t allow her tight jeans and sweet smile to sway him, even after
he’s coerced into spending time alone with her. Fighting the torturous battle going
on within his own mind and body, he can either deal with it—or succumb to the woman
who appears to be everything he didn’t know he needed.
In an attempt to save her rebellious teen sister from herself—as
her guardian, Brenna Page leaves everything behind and moves to Canyon Junction,
Arizona. When she unexpectedly meets a hot-headed cowboy with intense blue eyes
and muscles to die for, the first thing she wants to do is get away. Since she can’t
seem to shake him, Brenna wonders if that same grudge-filled cowboy with an attitude
is someone worth taking on. But still dealing with painful memories, and a sister
who wants nothing to do with Arizona, the last thing she needs right now is a horse
ranching cowboy interfering.
One wrong turn. Two broken families. Brought together by chance,
and need.
Note: Look for Book #3, the fourth book in the Double Dutch Ranch
Series spring 2015.

him the ability to maintain the ranch, tend to his horses, and keep up his small-time
ranching magazine. His attractive, new assistant is everything he wants in a woman,
including her ginger-red hair. But from his experience with women lately, he’s learned
that some don’t want a ready-made family. This one seems different, and he’s falling
hard. But, there’s his little blue-eyed girl, and he’ll protect Destiny’s heart
with everything within him. Until he knows for sure…
Living the good life in a big city for many years, Nora Trinity
ends up a statistic after the magazine she works for makes cutbacks. Despite a family
betrayal from her past that still needs mending, she moves back home to the small
town of Canyon Junction, Arizona, with forgiveness on her mind. When she is hired
by a local rancher to help with his ranching magazine, she finds herself profoundly
attracted to him. The thing is, her sexy boss comes as a package deal, and his little
girl is immediately drawn to her. It’s not just about two hearts taking a chance
now—or two people falling in love… Nora has to be sure of what she wants before
she takes on the cowboy and his child.

Elite Metal Collection 
For decades the US Marines funded a top-secret unit known as
Elite Recon. A deadly group of men and women sent to infiltrate dozens of countries
completely undetected. Mission objectives so extreme casualties were not only probable,
but expected.
The current batch of operatives had returned from hundreds of
assignments unscathed…until one mission went horribly wrong. Several men lost
their lives and the group disbanded. The remaining leathernecks were scattered in
the wind with new identities. They were told to blend in. Be normal. Or face being
forever silenced just like their fallen brothers.
Now, two years later, each living member of the group is kidnapped
and given a chance to make things right. But this time they’re no longer under the
thumb of Uncle Sam. A mysterious private backer who knows about their past has brought
them back together. No longer are they forced to turn a blind eye to the lost and
forsaken.
A new life. A new future…Elite Metal.
Anna Alexander and Jennifer Kacey, Heather Long, Sabrina York

Sterling’s Seduction
By Sabrina York

from coming out? He might even tie her to the bed.
Nothing is off the table when it comes to keeping his brothers
safe. Nothing. It’s a damn shame she’s everything he’s ever wanted. It’s a damn
shame her touch warms his cold, dead heart.

The Widows’ Gallery 
Today’s authbor interview is with Marilyn Baron.
Why did you write this
book?
I love using art and art theft as themes in my books. I studied
art history in Florence, Italy, in college where I fell in love with my favorite
painting—The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli—which hangs in the Uffizi Gallery.
So I decided to make that painting the centerpiece of my story. The cover art is
also reminiscent of that painting. Last year, my husband and I took an anniversary
cruise to the Mediterranean. All these things gelled and I decided to set part of
my book in Florence, Italy, and on a cruise ship, before the main characters arrived
in Lobster Cove, Maine, where the Lobster Cove series for The Wild Rose Press is
set.
What are your favorite
genres to read?
Literary fiction, women’s fiction and thrillers
Who is your favorite character
from fiction (not including your own)?
Jamie Fraser in the Outlander series.
What are you working on
at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
On March 20, Killer Cruise, the third book in my Psychic Crystal
Mystery Series, will be released from The Wild Rose Press. It also takes place on
a cruise ship and one of the themes is art theft. It’s murder, mystery, and mayhem
combined with high jinks on the high seas. The novel even features a vampire.
TWB Press just released my fifth dark and humorous supernatural
short story, The Files Death Forgot http://www.twbpress.com/thefilesdeathforgot.html
The Grim Reaper with a failing memory, a craving for chocolate chip cookies and
a penchant for old movies: Could this agent of death inadvertently save the world
from mass annihilation??M
My current work in progress is called Landlocked, where an inexperienced
South Florida realtor with weather issues, tries to sell her widowed grandmother’s
rural property on an isolated Western North Carolina mountaintop only to discover
the tract is landlocked, and therefore, unsalable. The book features a missing artist,
two romances and a serial killer.

five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Ines writes books for strong women who suck at love. If you rocked
out to the twisted triangle of Jem, Jericha, and Rio as a girl; if you were slayed
by vampires with souls alongside Buffy; if you need your scandalous fix from Olivia
Pope each week, then you’ll love her books!
Aside from being a writer, professional reader, and teacher,
Ines is a very bad Buddhist. She sits in sangha each week, and while others are
meditating and getting their zen on, she’s contemplating how to use the teachings
to strengthen her plots and character motivations. Ines lives outside Washington,
DC with her two little sidekicks who are growing up way too fast.
What is your go-to meal
when you dine out?
Fish and chips. It’s really hard to mess up.
Who is your “book
boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
I have the biggest book boner on Kristin Cashore’s Po from “Graceling.”
He’s a gentle warrior. I love the interplay of those polar opposites.
What’s your favorite hashtag
to watch on Twitter?
#amwriting
Tell us about your favorite
toy as a child.
I loved my Jem and The Hologram’s pink Roll’s Royce. I’m beyond
psyched that the live action film is coming to theaters soon.
What are your hobbies?
If I’m not reading, I’m hiking. Reading transports my mind to
another place. Hiking transports my body to another place.

estate, complete with a priceless wine collection. Cary concocts a plan to con both

Since Isaac is young, single, and gay, part of Cary’s scheme to get close to the

It’s only when a third cunning player comes in and is ready to outwit them both
that they must band together and beat their opponent or see all they’ve worked for
