Storm Crazy by Livia Quinn

Welcome to Destiny, or should I say Middle Earth…
I’m Sheriff Jack Lang. After an exciting career as a Navy pilot, Destiny seemed like the perfect place to settle down – safe, sane and secure. But that ship sailed when I met Tempest Pomeroy – sexy redheaded mail lady and trouble magnet. Tempe never fails to test the limits of my patience or the law. Every time I think it’s the last straw, up pops another haystack.
My name is Tempest Pomeroy, and my human job is delivering the mail. I’m also a Paramortal like my family, or I’m supposed to be. If I didn’t have a few little talents, I’d think I was adopted. To say I was having a bad day would be like saying Katrina dropped a little rain on New Orleans. My brother’s genie bottle is missing, my mother’s AWOL, and the sheriff and my ex-lover are squaring off like yard dogs staking a claim over a poodle. I am no one’s poodle. I’ve denied my heritage for most of my life but all this chaos is a sign of my quickening Tempestaerie power.
Oh, and the sheriff? He thinks he’s settled in a normal, quaint small town—like Mayberry?! We’ll see how that turns out… Things better settle down soon, ’cause I’m about to go…Storm Crazy.

Detour Ahead by Adriana Kraft

Threatened race horses, city slicker attorney, sexy California wrangler—what can possibly go wrong?
Hot-shot Chicago prosecuting attorney Traci Steele works tirelessly keeping rapists off the street to prevent other women from suffering the hell she’s endured, so she resists her friends’ insistence that she take a two month R and R in their California Live Oak condo—until they persuade her to help their rancher friend as a private investigator.
Though he runs the stables at Live Oak, well-muscled mustached wrangler Scott McCord much prefers working with the race horses he trains at his ranch, and he can’t believe his old friends have sent a greenhorn female to help him with horse troubles.
The improbable dance between this mismatched pair barely fits in around the escalating suspense of whoever’s after Scott’s horses. Traci is as tenacious in her sleuthing as she is terrified about her inability to ever love a man. Can Scott succeed in gentling her – like he does his horses – before she flees in panic?
Traci Steele may be the most damaged of the heroines in our four-book horse racing suspense series, Riders Up. If she was a real person, she might stand up and say “Me, too” – except she’s never told anyone, not even her best friend, Cassie.

Summer Rules, a novelette by Coralie Moss

As far as Elaine is concerned, when summer’s tourist season arrives on Salt Spring Island, it’s the off-season for romance. Her mini-empire of gourmet food trucks needs her undivided attention, and from the end of June through Labor Day, her ironclad Summer Rules are in effect. Sex is off the menu.
Richie’s a local tree trimmer, focused on building his business. He’s on hiatus from relationships until he meets the renowned entrepreneur, Elaine Atkins. She needs an experienced lumberjack to take down a tree that threatens to land on her most popular food truck. And when her cook can’t make it into work, Richie can’t say no to Elaine’s plea for a temporary sous chef.
The saucy rapport and spicy heat inside her popular taco truck aren’t all coming from what’s cooking on the stove. Elaine’s a vital woman in her mid-forties, and though Richie is twelve years younger, he deftly handles everything she tosses at him, starting with her resistance. By the end of the lunch rush, he’s ready to ask her for a date. And that’s when Elaine finds out just how hard it is to stick to her Summer Rules.

The Dragon Wore A Kilt by Holly Bargo

In the northern reaches of Scotland rests Loch Saorach, home to an ancient legend—a dragon. The Matasan family has guarded the loch and its dragon for centuries.
Over the years Saorach has claimed humans, imbuing them with his fae magic. Connor Matasan, the arrogant Earl of Glencarol, is a recent acquisition. Like all those possessed and transformed by the dragon’s ancient magic, Connor is sith, immortal and commanding powers beyond the human norm.
Middle aged wife and mother Lila is vacationing in Scotland when Saorach chooses her to join his brood. Her transformation to an eternally young sith is painful and compounded by the loss of everything she holds dear. Waking to a new life, she is utterly dependent upon Connor and his family. Lila feels trapped and resents that the dragon has bound her to Connor, soul to soul, passion to passion: a passion Connor cannot control, a passion Lila fears.
Will the magic that brought them together destroy them?

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About the Author

I write hot, curl-your-toes erotic romance featuring strong heroes and feisty heroines. (And the other way around!) My book boyfriends tend to be gods among men—often literally. Gods, werewolves, vampires, you name it. But I can’t bring myself to overlook those hot alpha humans entirely. Sometimes I’ll toss a cowboy, bounty hunter, or steely-eyed businessman in the mix just to change things up. In short, if there’s a tale to be told about a dangerously sexy male with secrets and relentless determination (out of bed as well as in it), I’m all over it!
The gotta-write-fiction bug hit hard about fifteen years ago, and I haven’t come up for air since. I’ve written over twenty-five novels, most of them erotic romance, and dozens of short stories under three pen names. These have appeared online, in magazines, anthologies, and the occasional radio show. Then there’s this whole wonderful, wacky thing called family life, and I spend a good deal of my non-writing time hanging out with my husband (also an author) and youngest daughter, whom I homeschool. We like movies and TV—don’t get me started on how much is in my Netflix queue! And oh, yes, I haven’t given up my full time job…so by day I’m a (mostly) mild-mannered hospital secretary, by night a naughty romance author.

Interview with J. Rose Allister

What is your favorite genre to read?
And the winner is…romance! I mean epic, sweep you off your feet, be my next book boyfriend romance. Super hot is awesome, but it’s about the journey for me. My absolute time-and-again favorite is Pride and Prejudice, followed closely by Persuasion. So yes, a big Jane Austen fan. But let’s not forget the fantasy/paranormal aspects I love to write! I got hooked back in 2000, when Laurell K. Hamilton released A Kiss of Shadows, the first of her Merry Gentry series. That was my introduction to erotic romance involving fairies, intrigue, and oh-so-naughty doings in the boudoir.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have to answer this in two parts. For romance, Elizabeth Bennett rules supreme as a strong, break-the-mold heroine who is as stubborn and loveable as any character could be. (Although Merry Gentry is a fun runner-up as the wily, take-charge princess of the fairy court.)
That said, I have a non-romance favorite that always surprises people. She’s Mandy from Julie Andrews’ children’s novel of the same name. (Yes, the Sound of Music Julie Andrews!) She wrote a magical tale about a little orphan girl who climbs over the wall of her orphanage and finds an abandoned cottage that she transforms into her own special place. Mandy was everything I love in a character: willful, able to work for what she wants, and not afraid to break a rule or two in order to follow her heart. In many ways, Mandy shaped a good number of the characters I write, and the tale stuck with me so closely that I named one of my daughters after her.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
This year has largely been about the Sons of Herne, and I’ve got two more titles due out before Halloween. (Three, actually, as a special ninth story is planned involving the series namesake himself. Shh!) Feillor: God of Lammas just released this month, and I’m currently writing his twin brother’s book, Anduron: God of Mabon. In between the Sons of Herne stories, I’ve been working on another erotic fantasy romance, Bound to Her Master. This is a 3-book saga about a pregnant earth girl who winds up in an arrangement to pose as the sex slave of Lord Stepanyan, a god who is in the middle of trials of ascension to rule the high seat.
Stepping outside of the realms of hot gods, werewolf fans may be interested to hear I’m in planning stages for a Gen 2 spinoff to my bestselling Lone Wolves of Shay Falls series. The finale the seven-book series released in June, and it was so hard to say goodbye to those rugged cowboys-turned-werewolves that I just had to consider an extended stay.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Dominus, god of the sabbat, should never have had to spend half the year nurturing the latest light bearer himself. Now, months of visiting Lorayna in secret, present only as a whisper, has sparked a yearning inside of him that he cannot shake.
Lorayna is drawn to a presence she’s unable to resist. When she discovers her “holiday spirit” is in fact a mouthwateringly sexy god, she’s ready for whatever sabbat ritual he chooses. To her disappointment, his intentions are strictly hands-off.
When something goes wrong, however, Dominus is forced to break the rules and give into his urges before the Yule power consumes her. The ripples of their passion will alter many sabbat unions to come—and Dominus must defy his father, Herne, to follow his desires and prove to Lorayna that she was not merely another light bearer.
