About the Author

Olivia Night, a fictional character herself, has always been an avid reader and writer. She found the romance genre in college and has never been able to get enough. One sleepless night, the main characters of Book One in her Men of FTI  series sprang from her head fully formed. They demanded she tell their story; so she did. As they revealed themselves, so did two other intriguing characters. Those characters convinced her to give them their own books because their stories were worth telling too. And so Olivia suddenly became a romance author. When Olivia is not writing, she has the best job in the world, which, too, will remain a secret. In her free time, she reads, write, drinks wine, or is, most likely, out emulating Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Olivia lives in one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the U.S.—Baltimore. She lives with her cat, which she is convinced was a gladiator in his past life. Olivia plans to continue being awesome at this thing called life. Really, that’s her only goal.

Interview with Olivia Night

Why did you write this book? 
This novel is the second in a series. The main characters, Patrick Kane and Madison Lockwood are introduced in the first novel. Their story is very different from Seduction in Sierra Leone, but all the suspense, sexiness, and love are all there! 
What is your favorite genre to read?
It actually varies depending on my mood. But I have an entire book case dedicated to Historical Non-Fiction and Biographies. So totally different from Romantic Suspense obviously! 
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Anne Shirley, without a doubt. I love her spunk. And I like to think that I have it, too!
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
The third novel in this series, Seduction in Scotland will be released on August 1st. I also just finished a manuscript for a new series tentatively titled A Second Chance Series. I am really excited about both of these novels. A spin-off of The Men of FTI is in the works as well. The series is titled Interitus and follows a  group of military men who are part of a secret “peace making group”. 

Please tell us about your latest book.

In a hospital in Seville, Spain, Patrick Kane lies in a coma. Ambushed and shot while protecting a friend, he fights to survive.

She never thought she would see him again. Patrick, the man who’d brought her back.
Eight years ago, Patrick Kane, a joint partner in Fairlane Trade International, descended into a basement of horrors. That horrible day he rescued many women, but one he would always remember. Her beautiful doe eyes filled his dreams and haunted his nightmares.
Madison Lockwood, a nurse, has struggled to put her past behind her, trying to forget the time she spent in captivity. But she recognizes the man who rescued her and brought her out of that terrifying reality. She owes him her life. Patrick is gravely injured, and Madison vows to see him through.
When Patrick opens his eyes, he instantly knows that he made a mistake leaving Madison after freeing her from the clutches of a human trafficking ring. She is meant to be his. As Patrick tries to win over a wary Madison, the past they both thought was gone for good comes back with a vengeance. One by one, the survivors of the horrific ordeal are being murdered. Patrick knows that Madison will be next if he doesn’t protect her.
Together they must fight for their survival. Seduction In Seville, book two in the Men of FTI series, is a tale of redemption, murder, new beginnings, and love that takes the reader on a wild, exotic ride.

Unexpected Holiday Bonus by Merry Holly

CEO Suzette LeBlec has a problem. Well, two actually. She
needs a top-notch temporary replacement for her administrative assistant’s
maternity leave, and she needs to find a way to outmaneuver a hostile takeover
attempt by Mark Adams. To make things worse, it’s almost Christmas, the time
when Suzette most feels alone in the world. Too bad that handsome man at the
party got away. But when the same stranger applies for the temp job, his
almost-too-good-to- be-true credentials set off Suzette’s alarms. Dirk Harvey
worked hard for years to remain anonymous while he built his father’s
floundering company back up to its glory days. But when he discovers the
stunning woman he’d spotted at a party is hiring, he decides to go undercover
as “Dirk Mulligan”, administrative assistant extraordinaire. Besides, he and
Suzette have a common problem: takeover King Mark Adams. Maybe they can find a
solution together plus a little holiday bonus as well. The Littlest Angel by
Vicki Batman Lauren MacDonald has always coveted her mother’s ornament, The
Littlest Angel. When her mother gave it to another, Lauren embarks on a lengthy
search and finds a replacement only to have it snatched from her hands. Smith
Hancock’s grandmother had a little angel which has gone missing. Finding
another at a flea market would make her holiday the best ever. Only a feisty
girl is claiming it for herself. Can the twosome find common ground and
discover the true meaning of Christmas?

twist of fate sends Lady Roxanne Rothchild from London to the vibrant city of
Venice, and into the arms of the handsome and intriguing Danté. But she is not
the only one vying for his affection. Anna Maria Delafino de Padova will use
everything in her power to drive a wedge between Danté and Roxanne and win his
favor, including revealing the truth about Lady Rothchild. Will Roxanne be able
to put her blemished past behind her and find love, and will she have the
courage to reach for a promise of forever?

Bad Luck Partners by Cara Marsi:

Holidays have never brought Las Vegas hotel concierge Laney
Sikora anything but bad luck in the romance department. The worst was her
fiancé dumping her on Valentine’s Day. Via text. She’s determined to spend New
Year’s Eve alone with no romantic entanglements. But when her hunky new
neighbor locks himself out of his apartment, she can’t leave him standing in
the hallway. What’s a girl to do?
Las Vegas is just a pit stop for Chicago native and radio
personality Chance Carlisle while he waits for his agent to land him something
bigger in L.A. But in the meantime, he keeps bumping into—literally—his adorable,
but accident-prone, neighbor. Their private New Year’s Eve celebration leads to
a plan: they’ll become the Bad Luck Partners, dating only on holidays and
special events, avoiding holiday heartbreaks and matchmaking mamas.
But Fate might have something else in mind for the klutzy
cutie and the hotshot talk show host. Can their temporary partnership become a
forever deal?

Legendary matchmaker, Tillie has one last heart to mend
before retiring, but Miriam  and Mike may
