Star Brides: Dept of Corrections by Pia Manning

Genre Erotic Romance, SciFi, Action/Adventure

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): NR

Inmate 1640 would do anything to escape serving her long and well-deserved prison sentence. Anything. Including leaving Earth with Zuntx warrior Kadir, to serve as mate to him and the three other men of his unit.

Janine Longo was sentenced to twenty years for beating a man who tried to cheat her. Sick of her trouble making ways, prison authorities gave Janine an opportunity to attend a Bridal Fair, find an alien husband and leave Earth. When the pool of available mates dwindles and the guards call her name, Janine hastily agrees to return to Zuntx with Kadir. Besides, if she doesn’t like Zuntx or the men, she can always wander away and blend in with the crowd. Right?

Scarred and disfigured Kadir, is growing desperate. This is his third time as a Fair participant, and he doesn’t have the money to fund another attempt. So, when the woman in the orange jumpsuit agrees to accompany him, he accepts her offer.

Shortly after landing on Zuntx, Janine meets the other men in Kadir’s unit: Tero, Kobak and Bakur. Together, they disembark and head for home. Problem is, the thriving bustling Zuntx that Kadir left behind is not the same place he returns to. Riot torn, the planet’s homeless men now wander aimlessly seeking food, shelter and women.

This is not at all what Janine had in mind.

Can Janine find redemption on Zuntx? Is this her second chance? Can she learn to love her men? All four? And what about Tero’s little ‘problem?’ Hmmm…

Will life on Zuntx improve? Kadir has a plan…

Why did you write this book?

Kadir’s story kept nagging at me! I met him in Star Brides: Procured, when he was in a tough spot. His views of women and their capabilities needed to evolve. Janine’s not much of a rule follower. Her attitude has gotten her into trouble many times. She needs a second chance at redemption. So, I thought they’d be good for each other, and their journey a tale worth telling.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love reading erotic romances, scifi/fantasy, mystery, suspense, and well, you get the idea!

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

I’d have to say Meg Corbyn from Anne Bishop’s The Others series. Bishop manages to weave the paranormal into the normal in such a way as to make it an accepted part of her character’s everyday life.

What are you working on at the moment?

Star Brides 4 looms on my horizon, as well as a paranormal/horror novel.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Star Brides 4 will make an appearance in the next few months. I hope readers have enjoyed the Star Brides universe as much as I have enjoyed writing about its characters and their trials and tribulations finding true love. The as yet untitled para/horror novel will also find a release date.

Russian Pride by Holly Bargo

Contemporary Mafia Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Rescued from domestic abuse, Bratva princess Inessa recuperates from the latest beating in the home of Giovanni Maglione, the mafia captain of Cleveland. Learning that her husband double-crossed the Chinese triad, and they want their pound of flesh–and they’re happy to take it out of Inessa–her parents ask Giovanni to marry their newly widowed daughter. The Chinese triad will be looking for a Russian mobster’s wife, not the wife of an Italian mobster. Inessa agrees to this marriage of convenience which, of course, isn’t so convenient. The ruse fails, which forces Giovanni into a violent and bloody mob war, because he protects what’s his… and Inessa is most definitely his.

Holly Bargo never outgrew a love of fairy tales, legends, and myths. Or horses. However, one foot must remain firmly planted in the real world which is where Holly makes her living as a freelance writer and editor. She and her husband have two grown children and live on a southwest Ohio hobby farm with a menagerie indoor and outdoor animals.
When she’s not working on other people’s documents or reading, Holly finds time to transfer the voices in her head to paper … er … computer. If she doesn’t, there’s a definite possibility her mind will explode.
And for those who might wonder from where the pseudonym of Holly Bargo came, it’s quite simple really. Horses. Namely an elegant and temperamental Appaloosa mare who has long since crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is fondly remembered for guarding toddler children and crushing a brand new pager.
But that’s another story.

Pride (Sin-Eaters #1) by Lynn Chantale

Huemac, a half-breed, covets ultimate power, but he needs two things—access to the royal family and an ancient artifact. He attains the former by seducing the Emperor’s sister, and then steals the latter.

Huemac discovers the incantation to activate the fabled Athame of Souls, a mythical weapon capable of entrapping souls. His quest to rule is within his grasp. Only one thing stands in his way—Moctezuma.

Daughter of the Deepwood by Holly Bargo

Lifetime imprisonment for an immortal doesn’t bear consideration. As cold iron burns his skin and dampens his magic, fae captain Falco wrenches power and freedom from the broken body of another prisoner—a witchbreed female—tossed into his cell to make room for a new harvest of criminals. Honor and obligation mandate that he not abandon her.
Unable to heal her extensive injuries, he takes the dying witchbreed to the heart of the Great Forest where the most ancient magic lives. His plea granted, the woman is remade of a blend of his blood, her flesh, and deep magic. Bound by his debt, Falco takes Calista as his mate when he returns home to Froúrio Daimónafae, a sentient fortress-city carved from a mountain. Although he regrets his intended fae mate’s anger, his increasing affection and desire for his witchbreed mate surprise him.
Lost in a foreign culture, spurned by the fae, her body unfamiliar to her, and unable to believe in Falco’s professed affections, Calista makes her own destiny and realizes the fate of an unfriendly nation rests upon her shoulders.

Envy and Favor by Faye Hall

Genre Historical Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

What happens when a resentful man is determined to win the favor of the one you love?

For years Atol Livia has desired only one thing—to move north, far from the corruption of his father’s business, and start a life with the woman he loves. That is if Anna Jenel can look past his poverty and will agree to marry him. When Anna informs him that she gave her heart to him long ago, never once caring about any wealth he might have, he’s elated. But their plans are delayed when Atol’s father is found murdered. Once Atol has finally settled his obligations and is able to leave town, he goes to collect Anna but discovers that she is gone.

Anna doesn’t understand why her father whisked her away in the middle of the night to travel north. When they arrive, she finds a fully operational cattle station, and an associate of her father’s willing to do anything to gain possession of it—even marry her.

When Atol arrives up north, all he can think of is being reunited with Anna. But he soon discovers that the man who murdered his father now has his eyes set on Anna and will do whatever is necessary in order to have her as his wife. This man is determined to gain possession of Anna’s cattle station and the orange sapphires hidden there.

Will Atol and Anna be able to protect each other from a murderer, or will they fall victim to the envy of this man and lose each other forever?
