Welcome Dena Garson author of When Ash Remains, a new Native
American historical paranormal romance.

Why did you write
this book?
In truth, because a friend of mine nagged me for years to
write it. The secondary reason was because the myths and legends of the
Skinwalker fascinated me. I live in Oklahoma so some of those Native American
stories seem a little more, well… real.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
It depends on my mood – it’s a mix of historical,
paranormal, contemporary, fantasy, urban fantasy, and sci-fi romance. That’s
probably why I write in so many of those categories!
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Doctor Who. Not only does he get to travel across the
universe(s) but through time. He has seen (experienced) all kinds of people,
places, and cultures. And yet he is a protector and has a strong sense of equality
and respect for life. I hope that series runs for another 50 years!
What are you working
on at the moment?
I’m working on a Steampunk romance as well as a follow up to
Mystic’s Touch.
What books will we see
from you in coming months?
The Steampunk romance will be part of a box set that comes
out later this year. And I’d like to get into a sci-fi romance set that a group
has been putting together for later this year. *fingers crossed*

There isn’t a buffalo or deer that Kajika cannot take down.
So when his cousin is slaughtered he relishes the chance to track down the
killer. The trail leads him to a woman with gifts he has trouble believing in.
Despite their differences he cannot fight his instinct to protect her from all
threats – even those he cannot see. That drive even rivals his desire to

Knowing the spirits will protect her, Ahyoka allows the
handsome warrior to take her to be questioned by his chief about the
unexplained deaths in their village. He may not believe in her abilities but he
is one of the few who doesn’t treat her like something to be feared or shunned.
He awakens feelings that make her yearn for things she thought she’d never
have. Her biggest fear is that once he learns the full extent of her gifts he
will reject her like most of her tribe did.
A killer twisted by
hurt and anger
Kajika and Ahyoka must work together to find the one
responsible for the string of deaths in and around their villages. Faith,
trust, and even a little bit of love will be needed to defeat the killer and
right the wrongs committed in the pursuit of power and revenge.

About The Best Man (Wedding Dreams Boxed Set)

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: Nicole Morgan, et. al
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Avery Foster first met the
charming and irresistible Jackson Parks three years earlier at her best friend’s
wedding. After days of flirting with the sexy best man who made her pulse race
the two embarked on a passionate night unlike any she’d experienced before.
Truly believing that they shared a connection, Avery had been heartbroken when
she woke the next morning to find a note to learn that she had been nothing
more than a one night stand.
Now years later and on a much
needed vacation from her demanding job, Avery is looking forward to the quiet
days of solitude she is sure she’ll find in the mountains of Colorado. What she
doesn’t know is that her matchmaking friends have other plans in store for her.
They’ve arranged for Jackson to join her in hopes the two can rekindle their
romance that fizzled out far too soon.
Jackson always regretted the way
he had left things with Avery. Older, wiser and in a better place in his life
where he wants something more, Jackson is sure that Avery is what he’s been
looking for all along. He knows he burned a bridge the day he’d walked out on
her, but he refuses to let that be the reason he doesn’t at least try. He’d
been foolish enough to let her go once. He wasn’t about to make that same
mistake again.
And this time, he won’t let her

Welcome, Beatrice Bordel, from Marked by Honor (Book 2
Knights of Honor), a new medieval historical romance.
Genre medieval historical romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
1363 A.D. – Lady Beatrice Bordel loses her mother and
grandfather on the same day, leaving her penniless. With no protector and no
prospects for marriage, her future is dismal. Hoping her grandfather’s oldest
friend will take her in, Beatrice journeys north and is set upon by a band of
highwaymen. All seems lost—until Sir Raynor Le Roux arrives.
Raynor nurses a broken heart as he returns to his home. He
comes upon a scene of horror in the woods and rescues a beautiful woman who
stirs strong emotions within him. When he learns that Lady Beatrice travels to
her betrothed and is alone in the world, the code of chivalry that guides
Raynor’s life compels him to escort her so that she may marry her intended.
But Beatrice has told Raynor a white lie, trying to protect
herself, even as she is drawn to the handsome knight. As their growing
attraction turns to love, her dishonesty stands in the way. Will Beatrice admit
to her deception and tell Raynor the truth—or will this chivalrous knight turn
away from the women he desires?
Join Raynor and Beatrice as they travel toward their
inevitable destination of love.

Introducing Beatrice Bordel

Age: one and twenty
Gender: female
Birthplace: England
Profession: noblewoman
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
I am considered petite, especially when I stand next to Sir
Raynor Le Roux. I have straight hair that falls to my waist, a rich brown in
color, and my brown eyes are mixed with amber. My skin is porcelain, and I have
a dimple in my right cheek.
Please tell us a
little about yourself.
I am quite practical in nature. We have little coin, and
I’ve never known any luxuries. I enjoy gardening and sewing and cook better
than most. I play the lute and compose my own songs. I have been afraid of
horses my entire life because when I was young and riding with my father, we
were thrown. I survived the fall, but my father died soon after. I’ve grown up
in isolation, with my mother and grandfather as my only companions. Grandfather
says I’m most stubborn.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
I have fallen in love with the most dashing knight in all of
England, Sir Raynor Le Roux. Unfortunately, I told Sir Raynor a small, white
lie in order to protect myself. If he finds out the truth, I shudder to think
what might occur between us.
Do you have children?
More than anything, I long to be married and have children.
We are poor, though, and Grandfather cannot afford the bridal price. I fear I
will never know the touch of a man nor carry a babe in my belly.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
If my father could once again enter my life, I would be the
happiest woman in England. He died in a riding accident when I was young. I can
still remember how we would race on his horse around the meadow, the colors
flying by, and the wind in my hair. I loved Father more than anyone in the
world and miss him every day.
What is your biggest personal
My biggest flaw is that I am a liar. I never was before, but
suddenly I find I have lied to my landlord, to the man I love, and to the man I
hope will offer me refuge in his castle. Lying is a grievous sin, and I can
only hope that God will forgive me.
What would you like
people who hear your story to know?
I did receive my happily ever after with Raynor, thanks to
Alexa Aston. I would tell others that they must be strong and truthful,
especially with those they love.

Welcome Jennifer Loring author of No One on Earth, a new m/m
sci-fi romance.
Why did you write
this book?
After Glows Publishing had put out a call for m/m sci-fi
romance novellas to be collected into a holiday-themed anthology. The concept
interested me, so I experimented with a couple of different story ideas, all
involving Native American folklore, before settling on the legend of the
Handsome Fellow. I grew up on a reservation, but this was my first time writing
an indigenous character. I don’t think it will be my last. J Anyway,
the novella first appeared in Starstruck Holidays this past Christmas and is
now releasing on its own.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
It will probably always be horror. I also love non-fiction.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Two are characters I’ve loved since I was a
teenager—Irrylath from The Darkangel Trilogy by Meredith Ann Pierce and Zach
from Poppy Z. Brite’s Drawing Blood. I also adore Constantine from Robin
McKinley’s Sunshine.
What are you working
on at the moment?
A Gothic/paranormal romance novella for After Glows,
concepts for a narrative game, and a lot of short fiction.
What books will we see
from you in coming months?
March will bring my novella Prison Made of Mirrors, a
retelling of Snow White, from Strange Fictions Press. The final book of The
Firebird Trilogy (The Pieces of Us) releases from Limitless Publishing in April,
and the first Erotikós anthology—containing two of my erotic horror short
stories—from DarkFuse. In May, I’ll be in a contemporary romance anthology that
I can’t talk about yet.

Fellow, Jon decides that if he cannot find happiness himself, he will bring it

has located his beloved on another timeline, in another universe—ours—and he
will not leave without him.
Jon returns home from work one evening to find a gift of his
own—a strange young man waiting for him. Erukkass unveils one stunning
revelation after another, including the truth behind his lover’s death and the
nature of time itself. Can he and Jon forge a future together, or will two
timelines that have always intersected, no matter when or where, finally be
forced to diverge?

Secrets…Don’t you just love a good juicy secret? If you
check out prime time TV, several shows revolve around a theme of secrets, lies

The Bachelorette, Survivor, Top Chef, Celebrity Apprentice, etc. If you’re not

secrets and lies that turn the characters’ lives upside down. The stories take

new contemporary romance by Kryssie Fortune.

About Desire, Deceit, and the Doctor

Genre Contemporary Suspense
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): UK 18
Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends
and family–under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone
who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family.
She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s
finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see
is Adam–the man she loved and lost so long ago.
Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his
great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery
Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on
his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No
way would he marry a woman like her.
As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is
Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?

Introducing Mandy Devlin

Age: 30
Gender: Female
Birthplace: Westhorpe Ridge, North Carolina
Profession: Teacher turned Hotelier.
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Please provide a
physical description of yourself.
I’m a redhead, with a redhead’s temper. Not that I ever stay
angry long. I used to wear my hair long, but as a single mom, it’s easier to
wear it shorter. It still flies about in spiral curls. Other than that, I’m
sort of average—Average weight, Average build, but I have a redhead’s pale
Please tell us a
little about yourself.
This one is hard. I was the idiot cheerleader who ended up
pregnant with the captain of the football team’s baby. Circumstances, or more
truthfully, Adam’s wicked Great Aunt Edith—forced me to move away from my home
and my family. The last eleven years haven’t been easy, but I have a wonderful
son. I wouldn’t be without Ben now. I trained as a teacher, and even scraped
together enough cash to buy my grandmother’s hotel when she wanted to retire.
Owning Devlin’s hotel was a childhood dream, but I’m a bit fazed by how much
she’s let it go.
Who is the significant
other in your life?
Yeah right. As if I have time for romance. Once, I dreamed
of forever with Adam Devlin. We’d been dating for four years, then he dumped me
right in the middle of dance floor at our senior prom. At least I know he’s
moved on from Westhorpe Ridge now. According to his sister, he’s an army doctor
serving in the Middle East. Not that I’m keeping track or anything.
Are you book-smart, self-taught,
Book smart, I guess. I have a Math degree with a minor in
Business Studies. I’ve tried to wise up and be people smart too. I’ve been down
on my luck myself, so I help out wherever I can, but most of my life’s devoted
to raising Ben.
Do you get by, live comfortably,
live extravagantly?
Comfortably? I wish. I had a nest egg, a payoff from Adam’s
great aunt really, but I used it to get through school and put down the deposit
on Devlin’s Hotel. Things are pretty tight, but they’ll get better when I’ve
updated the hotel. The lunchroom’s keeping us afloat at the moment, and I’ve
got a small emergency fund. I really need to be making a profit by summer
What is your viewpoint
on wealth?
It depends what you do with it. Two of my friends, Jazz
Stewart and Abigail Montgomery have just inherited a small fortune each. I know
they’ll use it to do good things. Edith Montgomery, though—that’s Adam’s old
bat of an aunt—used her millions to manipulate people. You wouldn’t believe the
things she threatened to do to my family when I refused to abort my baby. The
compromise was she paid me off and I left town after I signed a contract that
said I couldn’t tell anyone who my baby’s father is. Not even Adam.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. I guess part of my heart still belongs to
him, but you hit the nail on the head when you called him my past.
If someone from your past
showed up, who would you most NOT want it to be, and why?
Adam Montgomery. It would kill me to see him with someone
else. Now his great aunt’s dead though, I need to tell him about Ben. I’m not
sure where I start with that, but he’s going to freak out when he discovers he
has a ten-year-old son he’s never met.
What is your breaking
This damned hotel. I’m pretty close to throwing in the towel
and going back to teaching. Every room needs a facelift, and I can’t afford to
get people in to do it. I mean, I love the place, and Ben’s settled in Westhorpe
Ridge now. The upside is I get more time with my son, but then I’m up at dawn
and working until midnight.
