It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Vampires...In Heidi Betts' New Christmas Anthology

Today we're celebrating the long-awaited release of THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, a single-author Christams anthology featuring three fun and sexy vampire romances from Heidi Betts!

Bestselling, award-winning author Heidi Betts began her love affair with the romance genre in junior high school, where she used to sneak romance novels into study hall when she should have been doing her homework. It didn't take long to decide she wanted to write a few romances of her own, so she set out to do just that.

Her first book was released by Dorchester Publishing in 2000, with five more to follow. From there, Heidi moved into the contemporary arena by writing numerous category titles for Silhouette Desire, and recently she signed with St. Martin's Press to begin writing funny, sexy single titles.

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.

THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS by Heidi Betts

Vampires turn to fanged and fabulous matchmaker extraordinaire Angelina Ricci to help them find that special someone to curl up with under the mistletoe in this charming (read: sexy) and delightful (read: funny) holiday collection by national bestselling author Heidi Betts. Because vampires need love, too. (Biting optional. Hot sex guaranteed.)

"All I Vant For Christmas"
Connor loves trimming the Christmas tree, baking gingerbread cookies, and hanging the mistletoe. But his vampire siblings won't help. His friend Angelina sends party planner Jillian to the rescue. But when Jillian, who's mortal, discovers she's decking the halls for a family of vampires, will she run - or will Connor have a beautiful woman to share the holidays with?

"A Vampire in Her Stocking"
When Vivian learns that her secret crush Nick is terminally ill, she's heartbroken. Confiding in Angelina, Vivian refuses to turn Nick into a vampire. Deciding to play Santa, Angelina changes Nick and leaves him wrapped in a red bow on Vivian's doorstep...

"It's A Wonderful Bite"
Although Angelina is happy with her boyfriend Sergio, she's ready for a commitment. After drinking eggnog and watching It's a Wonderful Life on Christmas Eve, Angelina falls into a dream where she is mortal and Sergio isn't interested in her. Talk about the nightmare before Christmas! But Santa must have checked his list twice because this Christmas Angelina's wishes are coming true...

Celebrating The Release Of Cherish D'Angelo's LANCELOT'S LADY

Today we're celebrating the release of LANCELOT'S LADY by Cherish D'Angelo (aka Cheryl Kaye Tardif) as a stop on her massive "Cherish the Romance" Virtual Book Tour!

Cheryl is a Canadian author, whose is best known for Whale Song, which is now available in its third edition, the 2010 ebook edition.

Whale Song, an emotional mystery that explores controversial issues like assisted suicide, school bullies and racism, has captured the attention of numerous film companies. A screenplay, which Cheryl wrote with co-writer Alison Neuman, was completed in 2006, along with a movie treatment. Cheryl is now in negotiations with a respected film producer/director.

Cheryl branched off into romance with her debut romantic suspense Lancelot's Lady. Since romance is a different genre from Cheryl's usual suspense/thrillers and YA, she wrote Lancelot's Lady under the pen name of Cherish D'Angelo. Lancelot's Lady was a semi-finalist in the Dorchester Publishing Next Best Celler contest hosted by Textnovel. It also won an Editor's Choice award from Textnovel in 2010.

LANCELOT'S LADY by Cherish D'Angelo

A Bahamas holiday from dying billionaire JT Lance, a man with a dark secret, leads palliative nurse Rhianna McLellan to Jonathan, a man with his own troubled past, and Rhianna finds herself drawn to the handsome recluse, while unbeknownst to her, someone with a horrific plan is hunting her down.

When palliative care nurse Rhianna McLeod is given a gift of a dream holiday to the Bahamas from her dying patient, billionaire JT Lance, Rhianna has no idea that her 'holiday' will include being stranded on a private island with Jonathan, an irritating but irresistibly handsome recluse. Or that she'll fall head over heels for the man.

Jonathan isn't happy to discover a drop-dead gorgeous redhead has invaded his island. But his anger soon turns to attraction. After one failed marriage, he has guarded his heart, but Rhianna's sudden appearance makes him yearn to throw caution to the wind.

To live fully in the present, Rhianna must resolve her own murky past, unravel the secret that haunts JT, foil the plans of a sleazy, blackmailing private investigator and help Jonathan find his muse. Only then can Rhianna find the love she's been searching for, and finally become...Lancelot's Lady.

"From the cold rocky shores of Maine to the extravagant mansions of Miami to a lush tropical island in the Bahamas, Cherish D'Angelo takes her heroine through a series of breathtaking romantic adventures that mirror the settings, often in surprisingly ironic ways. A page turner in the best possible sense." - Gail Bowen, author of the award-winning Joanne Kilbourn series.

WEBSITE *** MYSPACE *** NEWSLETTER *** FACEBOOK

To fight this evil, they'll have to make love. Lots of love.

AWAKENING BEAUTY Book 3 in The Fairytale Fantasies Series by Marie Treanor and Bonnie Dee.

Joel Thorne feels as if he's been sleepwalking through his life. Wealth and success are his; now he's at a crossroads. Politics beckons, a move that would be made easier with a loveless marriage of convenience to his ambitious friend and ally, Vee Gabor. During a long mountain hike to clear his head, he discovers a castle overgrown with thorns and, inside, a beautiful sleeping woman.

When Princess Aurora opens her eyes, Joel's handsome face is imprinted on her heart - then she's swamped with grief and loss. An evil fairy tried to take her pure blood to gain power, and though her other godmothers fended off the worst of the curse, she's been asleep for a thousand years. Worse, she's been erased from history and from the memories of all she loved. True love brought her back, but to what future?

Despite their instant, strong attraction, Joel's practical nature wars with the possibility that magic is real. Yet with every touch, every kiss, the heat and emotion grow more real than anything he's ever known. Their union also reawakens something else. Something darker. An evil fairy's centuries-old vendetta that just won't die.

Warning: Contains explicit, edge-of-your-dreams sex, a newly minted hero in training, and a fairy princess who kicks butt for the man she loves. No fairy dust was spared in the making of this book.

Celebrating The Release Of THE BID by JAX AKA Jacquelyn Frank

Today we're celebrating the release of THE BID, an Aphrodisia Erotic Romance from JAX.

Let's talk about JAX. She has an aka, you may know her as Jacquelyn Frank. Now, she's not getting tricky on you or trying to confuse you, it's just that sometimes she writes something that goes a little out of the norm; walks a fine line with erotica, or perhaps crosses right into it. So she created JAX. JAX will be where you can find a steamier side of Jacquelyn Frank. In the end though, it's all still her. She still lives in Asheville, NC, with her nine cats. (She swears...nine is her absolute limit! No, She means it this time!) She still loves her little girl to pieces and she's still trying to save the world one book at a time.

Feel free to contact Jacki at JacquelynFrank@hotmail.com or visit her website at http://www.jacquelynfrank.com/ and read all about the Nightwalkers, the Shadowdwellers, the Gatherers and her new venture into pure erotica.

THE BID an Aphrodisia Erotic Romance from JAX (aka Jacquelyn Frank)

Strapped and chained on the block, a masterpiece of naked flesh and muscle turns slowly...the eyes of the crowd devour the sight of Vejhon, whose platinum-white hair and cat-green eyes mark him as newly captured from a wild planet on the outer edges of space. The noble men and women erupt in a bidding frenzy - that finally stops on a man named Najir. This strikingly handsome man who strangely resembles Vejhon cries out the winning bid on behalf of the lady he serves. Hanna Drakoulous now has a matched pair of the finest males in the galaxy...

Shackled, Vejhon can only marvel at the mysterious beauty with blue skin and shining eyes whom Najir clearly worships. But Vejhon refuses to humble himself - until Hanna's kiss strikes him like lightning. First dominant, then sensually tender, she arouses him to explosive sexual passion that goes beyond the limits of physical pleasure. What manner of mistress has bought him and what does she want? Freedom is what he wants, but will she be worth the price?

Celebrating A Hot New Romance From Teirney Medeiro

Today we're celebrating Teirney Medeiro's hot new romance AXEL'S OBSESSION.

Let's meet Teirney Medeiros:

I'm not much of an exciting person... I'm quiet, shy and usually socially backward. I'd rather read than talk on the phone, and write than watch television. I'd rather make a difference in one person's life than the world.

My heart belongs to my husband, family, friends, children and my stories, everything I am goes into my writing. I hate activity, I'd rather sit beneath the sunshine and listen to my own random thoughts than attend a college party. I'm flakey at times, and I make no promise to understand what you're saying half the time. I'm usually not listening because I've got to deal with the voices in my own head first. My husband thinks I'm smart as a whip and dumb as a doornail at the same time because I have hope someday mankind will wake up and see what they're doing to each other.I don't pretend to be sweet, innocent or kind. Sometimes I just am. I'm not always humble, and I'm not always proud.

Honestly, I'm just a person grateful for life. I love to watch the world going on around me. I think I'd rather observe than talk. If I never spoke again, it's okay, I'm a better listener anyway. I'm a living contradiction, and I love it that way.

Celebrating A New Print Release In Sam Cheever's Gods Of Love Series

Today we're celebrating the print release of NOCKED ASUNDER, the second book in Sam Cheever's erotic fantasy series - The Gods of Love.

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.

Find out how you can get free goodies and many even your name in one of her books by joining her Fan Club!

NOCKED ASUNDER - This erotic fantasy is book two in Sam Cheever's Gods of Love Series

In her line of work Athena Googlios is accustomed to hot, sexy men. But Damian Leandar puts hot on a whole new level. His touch, even his gaze makes her body clench and warm with lust. Athena’s mind tells her she needs to treat him like any other client. But her body has its own agenda. And when Athena finds herself facing off with a pair of truly ugly mythical creatures, Damian may be the only one who can save her from a fate worse than death.

Unfortunately, Damian has some pretty big secrets. And despite the feelings they can no longer ignore, something bigger than love may yet come between them. In the end, it might take losing everything they have, to make them realize how much they had to lose.

Celebrating A New MEN OF S.W.A.T. Story From J. C. Wilder

Today, we're celebrating the release of the fourth book in J.C. Wilder's MEN OF SWAT Series.

J.C. Wilder left the world of big business to carry on conversations with the people who live in her mind, fictional characters that is. In her past she has worked as a software tester, traveled with an alternative rock band and currently volunteers for her local police department as a photographer. She lives in Central Ohio with 6,000 books and an impressive collection of dust bunnies.

This award-winning author also writes as Dominique Adair.



Fourteen years of friendship, it all comes down to this... LOVING RANGER


Sissy Kolchek is a smart-mouthed waitress with a southern accent that's thicker than honey and a life that isn't nearly as exciting as some people think. As the daughter of the town tramp, she's cynical about men, relationships and anything marked one size fits all. Beneath her wisecracks is a woman who secretly longs for a family and a place where she belongs.

Jason "Ranger" Diver is an undercover cop who has seen the dark side of love and wants nothing to do with it. With his chaotic lifestyle, he hasn't the time or the inclination to become involved with only one woman - especially not his friend Sissy. He's fantasized about her since high school and when they kissed, she rocked his world. Jace is captivated by the woman she has become and, as their relationship grows, he finds himself torn between the biggest case of his career and the love of a good woman.

Warning: Copious amounts of hot lovin', random bad guys wrecking havoc, a goat named Casper, more sexy cops than you can shake your nightstick at and the deliberate destruction of the English language.

WIN - Leave a comment or question for JC today at her Cyber Launch Party and your name goes in the hat for a special gift pack for fall. Please leave your email address so we can contact you if you are today's winner!

Celebrating Andrew E. Kaufman's Supernatural Thriller

Today we're celebrating the print release of Andrew E Kaufman's national bestseller WHILE THE SAVAGE SLEEPS.

Andrew E. Kaufman is an award-winning writer and author living in Southern California, along with his Labrador Retrievers, his horse, and a very bossy Jack Russell Terrier (who, incidentally, thinks she owns the place). His new novel, While the Savage Sleeps, a forensic paranormal mystery, takes place in the fictitious town of Faith, New Mexico. It broke out onto four or Amazon's bestsellers lists, taking the #1 spot on two of them and placing #3 on their Movers and Shakers list.

After receiving his journalism and political science degrees at San Diego State University, Andrew began his writing career as an Emmy-nominated writer/producer, working at KFMB-TV, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, then at KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. For more than ten years, he produced special series and covered many nationally known cases, including the O.J. Simpson Trial. He has also written stories for the Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the most recent of which is due out later this year.

"Andrew Kaufman goes the extra mile when it comes to authenticity, and just when you think you have seen it all in crime fiction, a guy like this comes along and knocks your socks off." -- Robert W. Walker, critically acclaimed author of over fifty novels, including the Edge and Instinct Series.

WHILE THE SAVAGE SLEEPS the bestselling supernatural thriller from Andrew E Kaufman.

TWO STRANGERS
Cameron Dawson's got a past he can't seem to shake, but he's hoping to change that. He's moved back home to Faith, New Mexico and taken a job as assistant sheriff. What he doesn't realize is that his newest nightmare's about to begin. Strange things are happening. People are disappearing, and for others, it's far worse...

DISTANCE SEPARATES THEM
Miles away in Albuquerque, Kyle Bancroft's life is spinning out of control. She's seeing, hearing, and dreaming things she can't explain: Flashbacks to World War II and an eerie hospital ward with locked doors, empty gurneys, and guttural screams. To make matters worse, a ghostly green-eyed girl is complicating her visions with an urgent message: Time is running out.

A DARK SECRET CONNECTS THEM
Kyle's otherworldly encounters are driving her straight toward Faith... and right into Cameron's life. The body count is rising, the pressure is mounting, and the clock is ticking as they rush to uncover a dangerous secret hiding just below the surface of this all-American town - one that's threatening to destroy Faith and everyone in it. A secret they must hunt down quickly... even if it costs them their own lives.

A VOICE FROM THE GRAVE WILL DRAW THEM TOGETHER

The sex is beyond anything she could have imagined, for Dan knows how to use every part of his body, including his talented hands and mouth, to give her screaming orgasms. She wonders if life could possibly get any better.

Then Dan disappears and her world turns upside down - until he reappears in the dark to addle her brain with the hottest sex she's ever known and a secret that could bring down the country.

But when Anwyn Naime, a woman with whom he shared an unforgettable night, is turned by a vampire pack, they become bound by something far greater than either imagined. It also forces Gideon into an uneasy alliance with one of the most terrifying vampires he's ever encountered: the mysterious Daegan Rei.

As Gideon and Daegan shepherd Anwyn through her dangerous validation with the Vampire Council, it's clear the three of them must learn to trust each other. But as boundaries between them erode and vulnerabilities surface, Gideon realizes he is no longer the man he thought he was - changed by a strange and unexpected bond with the two new people in his life he can't survive without...vampires.

A deputy bent on revenge will have the pleasure of turning a haughty madam into his mistress where she is now his to use the way she used him.

Deputy Marshal Shane Duckett has come to the town of Redemption with only two things on his mind - revenge and Madam Cherie Launbauer. Eight years ago, Shane was naive and in love, and because of this he was easily deceived.

Cherie used Shane's innocence against him, and easily seduced him. She ended up escaping from jail on his watch, while he ended up spending two years in a federal prison for trusting and loving the wrong woman. But now he is older, wiser, and full of bitterness and has found his way to Redemption and on Cherie's doorstep where he intends to drag her back to prison and make her serve out her sentence.

But Shane soon learns Cherie has made mighty powerful friends on the right side of the law, and they're not too keen on seeing her locked up in prison. They offer Shane another alternative. For every day spent in prison because of her, Cherie will spend a night in Shane's bed as his exclusive mistress. Not the revenge he'd envisioned, but certainly a just sentence.

Cherie will be his mistress, there to serve his needs, to see to his pleasure, and only his pleasure. Shane will have the pleasure of turning this haughty madam into his mistress where she is now his to use the way she once used him.

Today we're celebrating the release of BANGING THE SUPERHERO, book two in the Sexy Superheroes Series by Rebecca Royce and today's extra special because it's Rebecca's Birthday too!!!

Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They live in northern New Jersey and try not to freeze too badly during the winter months.

She's in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the pararnormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing.

In Rebecca Royce's world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.

Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is spending the summer in Romania researching historical superstitions for her PhD. While she is tracing local foktales, one subject in particular sparks her imagination. His name is Saloman, legend's most powerful vampire, a seductive prince staked centuries ago. Now, in the ruins of a castle crypt, Elizabeth discovers the legends are real. Her blood has awakened him. Her innocence has aroused him. But Elizabeth unleashes more than Saloman's hunger.

An army of vampire hunters has amassed to send Saloman back to hell. Sworn to help - yet fearing Saloman's deadly blood lust - Elizabeth seeks to entrap him, offering her body as bait. But something stronger than dread, more powerful than revenge, is uniting Elizabeth to her prey.

This NYT and USA today bestselling author of The Nightwalkers Series wanted to be an author since she was barely into puberty.

She's been writing it and gobbling it up ever since!

Although she's branching out from the Nightwalkers, not to fear, they will always be a part of her. It's simply a matter of where the muse is taking her.

Celebrating A New Short Story Collection From Darrell Bain

Today we are celebrating the release of Darrell Bain's new short story collection OOPS!


If you’ve never read Darrell Bain before, then now is the time to consider picking up one of his books. Darrell is without shadow of a doubt a natural storyteller. His individual, highly creative style of writing, often humorous, flows at a natural reading pace that has you drawn into a story before you know it.

Multiple awards under his belt from Fictionwise, EPIC, and Dream Realm, give testimony to the fact that Darrell Bain is a huge talent, his skills producing everything from short stories to novels. His inspiration comes from almost everyday things and occurrences in life. Who else could write the story (Bark!) of Tonto, an ADHD-afflicted, one-testicled little canine, who turns out to be the only thing that can prevent an unintentional invasion from aliens? Darrell also writes in partnership with other authors, with none other than Travis S. Taylor being one of them.

WEBSITE

Oops! is the third collection of stories by Darrell Bain. When Cupid and a Gremlin bump heads, the sparks fly in a rare fantasy story by the author. Others stories in the collection include A Simple Idea, an almost ludicrously simple method of eliminating corruption and idiocy from the political process, one that has been around for centuries but gone unrecognized. Cure for an Ailing Alien finds a nurse who must come up with a cure for an alien, one whose bodily processes are completely unknown. You'll be amazed at her cure! Retribution is the story of unexpected consequences when alien meets human. Robyn's Rock is partially based on a happening in the author's life during a walk with his granddaughter.

The collection is completed by: Coyote Scare, A Steel Trap Mind, The Furniture Formula, Golden Years, Why Read an eBook on Your Computer?, PSI Ability, Another Furniture Formula, The Jack Daniels Bug, Math Madness, The Naughty Bed, and Samantha's Talent.
