Sam writes fast paced fantasy and romantic fiction with feisty characters who deal with life's little challenges in unique and often hilarious ways. As a reader Sam is very impatient. She quickly loses interest if a story doesn't have a good pace and snappy dialogue. Sam's inability to focus in a backwash of human angst and subtleties works out well for her readers, since she writes the way she likes to read.
In her real life, Sam lives on a hobby farm in Indiana with 10 dogs, 4 horses, 2 barn cats, 2 daughters, and one husband. Not necessarily in that order.
To learn more about the author and her work, visit her website at http://www.samcheever.com/ and her blog at http://tweenyouandme.blogspot.com/ or come friend her at http://www.myspace.com/samcheever.
Book 3 in Sam Cheever's Gods of Love series.
Hermes Adonis has a broken heart and an attitude problem. When the Fates send him on a forced sabbatical from Cupid's Arrow, he's not a happy Cupid. Hermes spends his days sucking Brimstone and anticipating his total destruction. But when a dark-haired beauty throws him to the ground and puts a knife to his throat, he feels an unexpected spark in his dead heart.
Nidras is a cursed demon princess. She's pretty tapped out just trying to kill the wizard who holds her curse. The last thing she needs is a man, especially one whose sexy head is fuzzy from sucking Brimstone all day. But Hermes is funny and determined, and Nidras is lonely and scared. And when they get together in a room, the heat they create nearly melts the paint from the walls.BUY THE BOOK *** READ THE EXCERPT

Today we're celebrating Lexxie Couper's new Ellora's Cave Twilight release, TIMELESS WRATH and the fact that her book. DEATH, THE VAMP AND HIS BROTHER, was just awarded a CAPA for Best Erotic Paranormal Romance!
Lexxie's not a deviant. She just has a deviant's imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get darkly erotic romances with a twist of horror, sci-fi and the paranormal.
When she's not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie's life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she's insane, a pony-sized mutt who thinks he's a lapdog, two yabbies hell-bent on destroying their tank and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.
Contact Lexxie at http://firstname.lastname@example.org, follow her on Twitter http://twitter.com/lexxie_couper or visit her at http://www.lexxiecouper.com/ where she occasionally makes a fool of herself on her blog.
A new Ellora's Cave Twilight release in Lexxie Couper's Going Down Under series.
Beatrice "Ricki" Sullivan is every man's fantasy. Drop-dead gorgeous, she exudes a sensuality none can ignore. More than just a stunning face and body, she's intelligent, kind, gentle...and madly, inexplicably in love with Evron, a man she's known mere hours.
Evron McKenzie is troubled, struggling with undeniable anger that scorches through his veins. And the irrational feeling he is someone else, something more. Someone rich, powerful...someone to fear. But in Ricki's arms, Evron may have finally found his place in the world. At last he is at peace.
So who is the seductive redhead who invades Evron's dreams? Why does she urge him to touch a mysterious sculpture - a sculpture that seems to radiate death and sin? How can she make him hornier than he's ever been in his life with just a look, and at the same time turn his anger into bloody, murderous rage? And, more frighteningly, why can't he resist her?

Prior to writing her first fiction only a few years ago, Dee S. Knight lived a varied lifestyle. After college she married her high school sweetheart and they became house parents at a home for wards of the court. Thus, she went from newlywed to "mother" of a dozen teenage boys, in a month. Two years of living in one city proved to be enough, and she and her husband spent the next eight years as long-distance truckers. Swiftly following their trucking years, she became a computer consultant, high school and adult ed teacher, technical writer and novelist. More than thirty years later, she's still married to her own hero and finds life infinitely interesting. They currently reside in the Midwest.
Looking for something sweeter, meet Dee's sister, Anne Krist.

When she seals the contract in a bout of wildly fulfilling sex, she thinks Walt Sheridan is the one man she might be able to trust.
Walt Sheridan has low expectations when he orders a bride for himself and his two brothers, but when Sabina steps off the shuttle he knows she is the woman for him...for all of them. His only reservation to offering his heart and soul to the sexy woman with the long legs and high-heeled boots is the secret she keeps from him. One thing is certain, the Sheridans will use any means to protect her from whatever put the fear in her eyes.

Jean feels she’s very much a Californian although she was born in Ohio. California has been home for a good many years. Life changed drastically for her when she was six and her father died incredibly from an errant golf ball. A dishonest insurance agent forced her sheltered mother to seek work, and she became a teacher. Her hours required Jean to be alone in the house in the afternoon, and since she was forbidden to leave till her mother got home, she became an avid reader. The local library supplied most of the books and she developed early her two of main interests, Jane Austen and King Arthur.
Reading is still one of her favorite activities, although she sometimes has to push it aside to make room for her enduring love of writing. Her journalism degree was used infrequently until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised she finally could devote her time to writing, her first love.
Jean's enchantment with the lore and legends of Druids and, therefore, delving into their history led to fascinating research that inspired her popular Garland of Druids Series for Cerridwen Press. She's now enjoying writing stories filled with magic and romance for her Songs of the Mages Series, also for Cerridwen Press.
Few things in her life have been so satisfying, especially when all her books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Who would want to deny him? Not Jean!
Lady Jennivere has inherited powers from Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. She heals with her unusual empathy and abilities, often absorbing some of her patient's pain herself. Zach Rendell is a historian whose latest book is an expose of charlatans who claim supernatural power. Jenny's beauty thrills Zach, but he's convinced she's a fake.Jenny wants to start a vineyard at her property near Dover. Zach is enthralled by Jenny's intelligence but questions her claim of healing abilities. Yet every time he sees her caring success another chink in his armor falls away. He finally accepts her magical gifts, but now thinks he's not good enough for such an empowered person. And Jenny can't bring herself to tell him her own secret guilt and why she needs him so badly.
Both must give in order to secure their love. But are the lovers capable of so much?

THE FAMILY WAY by Michelle Levigne
Lisa thought she walked into her marriage with her eyes wide open, aware of the hard task of getting the approval of her cold, domineering father-in-law. When she discovered she was pregnant, she thought she would finally be accepted, but Todd's reaction to the news was the last thing she expected: "Is it mine?"
She had endured his father's constant criticism because she thought Todd loved her, but now she wasn't so sure. Maybe Todd had never loved her, and he was more like his father than she dreamed. To protect her baby, should she leave him, and refuse to continue the Montgomery family tradition? Where did being a 'good Christian wife' end, and the need to protect her sanity and her baby begin?

A brand new contemporary romance in New York Times bestselling author Lori Foster's Fighter Series.
SBC president Drew Black is as controversial as they come. But the hot-headed entrepreneur is a perfect match for his popular sports club venture: uncompromising and extreme. Maybe too extreme. With a reputation for saying what he thinks, Drew's been causing a lot of friction. That's why someone's been called in to clean up his image - before he does any permanent damage.
The lucky lady is Gillian Noode, a PR expert who's smoothed out the rough edges on many a man. But Drew is rougher than anyone she's ever met, and he refuses to change for any woman, for any reason. To make matters more complicated, Gillian's starting to like him raw. Now, opposites aren't only attracting, they're igniting. But in the rising heat, which one of them will end up on top?
Good news—Lori's MEN OF COURAGE, MEN OF COURAGE II, and THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS AND DOGS were just produced in eBook format! They are available for Kindle right now and are also available from eHarlequin’s eBook Store , as well as through all other eBook vendors.

With each new book, Heidi asks herself how she can bring to life endearing heroes and heroines whom readers will believe are meant for each other. And with each new novel to hit the stands, readers and reviewers alike declare she knows how to create a story that sizzles, charms, and delights from the first page to the last. Her first title for Silhouette Desire landed at #1 on the Waldenbooks/Borders Series Romance Bestseller List, where her books have continued to make an appearance ever since.
Heidi loves to read, write, watch movies (and just a little too much television), and surround herself with furry, four-legged friends in her home in the beautiful hills of Central Pennsylvania.

Book three in Heidi Betts' Chicks With Sticks Series
SHE'S CUTTING HIM LOOSE
When it comes to relationships, talk show host Grace Fisher won't stand for cheating - especially not from her fiance, star hockey goalie Zack Hoolihan. Her weekly knitting group backs her up when she calls it off, but it doesn't entirely ease the sting of betrayal. She won't listen to Zack’s indignant explanations of innocence - she just wants to tie up loose ends and move on. Until he winds up injured, that is, and she finds herself playing nursemaid...
NOW HE'S THROWN FOR A LOOP
Zack doesn't know how that woman got into his hotel room, but he does know losing Grace has put him so far off his game, he ended up with a busted knee and a broken heart. If things aren't mended fast, he'll miss the playoffs, miss his girl, and lose everything. But if Grace is willing to push him into physical therapy, maybe he can pull her back into his arms - before their truce unravels. This time, he'll do everything it takes to knit their relationship back together...
