PILLAR'S FALL - The Legend of Pillar: Book One by Ben Larken

Detective Thomas Pillar had no premonitions of the day ahead. He didn’t know he was about to clash with a sadistic lunatic on Railston's only suspension bridge. In one gut-wrenching moment, Pillar was forced to make a life-or-death choice that left the entire city shaken and set a madman's plan into motion.

Now, months later, it's starting again . . .

This time, Pillar's investigating a string of rage-filled murders, and all the clues point to the most unlikely of suspects - a twelve-year-old named Seth Morrissey. The child seems nice, if a bit lonely, but something malevolent and demonic hides beneath his surface. While Pillar searches for answers, the thing inside Seth prepares for a showdown that will rip Pillar's life to shreds and pave the way the hell on earth.

As the body count rises and Pillar's marriage begins to unravel, he races against time to stop the force that's pulling all the strings. But how do you destroy the demon without killing the innocent child? This is Pillar's dilemma. This is Pillar's story. This is Pillar's Fall.

Celebrating Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampires

Today we're celebrating the Kensington reissues of USA Today Best-selling author Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire Books, KISS ME FOREVER, LOVE ME FOREVER and BE MINE FOREVER.

Rosemary is an ex-pat Brit, retired special education teacher and grandmother who now lives in Ohio and has a wonderful time writing and letting her imagination run riot.

Her hobbies are vacuuming, dusting and cleaning toilets but regrettably the demands of her writing career leave little time to engage in these pursuits.

KISS ME FOREVER - The first book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire series.

If there is one thing Dixie LePage does not need in her life, it's complications. And the man sitting across the table from her in a crowded English pub is a major complication. For starters, there's the broad shoulders. The slightly amused smirk. That smoldering look that makes it impossible to concentrate. No doubt about it, the guy is hot and sexy. Of course, there is one wee little problem: He claims to be a vampire named Christopher Marlowe, as in The Christopher Marlowe, famous playwright, contemporary of Will Shakespeare. Amend that to hot, sexy, and totally insane.

So why can't Dixie seem to resist the warmth of Christopher's charm, the protective feel of his strong hands, or the tempting pull of his full mouth when the sun goes down...?

LOVE ME FOREVER by Rosemary Laurey

The second book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire Series is set in German Village in Columbus Ohio and is the story of physician/vampire Justin Corvus and a blue-collar single mother named Stella. Neither Justin nor Stella expected the attraction between them, nor could they anticipate the act of violence that puts Justin afoul of the vampire code he helped establish.



All single mother Stella Schwartz meant to do was let her son, Sam, browse through books at Dixie's Vampire Emporium. She hadn't counted on the shop assistant, Justin Corvis, being a dark-eyed super-hunk with the kind of charismatic English accent that would make her heart skip a beat. And she couldn't know how close to the truth that was. When Justin smiles at her, it's as if he's known her forever. And when he asks for her phone number - Stella can't help wanting the thrill to last for eternity. For there's something dangerously different about Justin Corvus...different and irresistible.

BE MINE FOREVER by Rosemary Laurey

The third book in Rosemary Laurey's Forever Vampire series, this tells the story of the two ghouls, and Angela and Tom's romance.

Tom Kyd has smouldering eyes, a sculpted body, and supernatural staying power - even for a vampire. He also thinks he knows best about everything - including how to figure out who Angela Ryan was before he and his clan rescued her from a mysterious attack that stole her memory. But whoever she is, Tom wants her...

Six months ago Angela never would have imagined her life would turn into an episode of Dark Shadows - or that she'd be saved by the kind of man she's always fantasized about. Tom may be a vampire, and a know-it-all, but when he kisses are so sinful, so intoxicating, and so damn good, Angela is tempted to say yes to whatever he wants.

CATCALLING CATHERINE by Cheryl Dragon

Call it a compliment. Call it offensive. The whistles and shouts of hot, young construction workers have become Catherine's latest sexual obsession.

Problem solved - or so she thought.

One fantasy isn't enough for Tony. Catherine failed to recognize him as part of the crew who remodeled her office. After the best sex of his life, he wants more - their combined fantasies with no services, no secrets. Anywhere, anytime and anything she wants, if she can handle a little reality in her fantasy life.

Celebrating A New Audio Release For Barbara Clark

Today we're celebrating the audio book release of Barbara Clark's DANGEROUS HAVEN.

"All dreams lie beyond defeat." That quote by an unknown author has inspired Barbara Clark to keep writing and creating new stories set in a variety of locations. Her books range from the coast of southern California to a glittering penthouse in New York city, a working cattle ranch in Arizona, the romance and challenge of the Sahara Desert, and the heat and danger of a Brazilian Rain Forest. Her readers have come to expect deep emotions, simple joys, and heart-stopping peril in her award-winning books.


Her newly released book, DANGEROUS HAVEN, was first available in download and print. Now it’s available as an audio book from Audio Lark with a new cover and a button on the publisher’s website that you can click to listen to a short audio sample.

DANGEROUS HAVEN by Barbara Clark

Sharon Smith thinks Walkersville is a safe haven. Still bruised by the loss of her husband, a man she thought she knew until his death exposed his secrets, all she wants is the peace and quiet of small town life.

Brand Templeton thinks Walkersville is a crime scene. He’s returned to Hawk Haven to lay claim to his father’s empire and revenge the cruelty that led to his mother’s death.

Now they must help each other to face the ghosts of their past if either is to have a chance at a future.

Celebrating A Brand New Dancin'With The Devil Book From Sam Cheever And Ellora's Cave

Today we're celebrating the release of the fifth book in Sam Cheever's award-winning Dancin' with the Devil series starring one feisty little tweener named Astra Q. Phelps.

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.

The delectable Dialle, king of the Royal devils, really needs Astra's help in Hell to deal with an insurrection. But Astra's Settling pretty much has her thinking of only one thing - S.E.X.!

Sex with Dialle, sex with her yummy partner Emo, sex with a molten-hot dragon slayer she meets along the way, and sex with assorted other randy Royals cavorting among the fires of Hell. It's a constant struggle just to keep her mind and body pure so she can concentrate on the business at hand, but Astra Q. Phelps is definitely up for the challenge. And Good versus Evil has never been this much fun!

Celebrating Jacquelyn Frank's Release Day

Today we're celebrating the release of DRINK OF ME, a sexy new paranormal from Jacquelyn Frank.

A native New Yorker, currently living in North Carolina, Jacquelyn Frank loves animals, specifically cats, to a point of insanity. She loves her boys like she would honest to goodness children.

This NYT and USA today bestselling author of The Nightwalkers Series wanted to be an author since she was barely into puberty. It was those sexy teen romances where the first kiss was as far as they went. Heh. She thought that was the be all and end all until she got her hands on an introductory copy for a new series launching called Loveswept and got her first taste of sizzle. 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.

DRINK OF ME by Jacquelyn Frank

In a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma...

Drink of me, she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all.

But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end...In blood, in knowledge, in ecstasy.

Celebrating William R. Potter's First Jack Staal Mystery

Today we're celebrating the first book in William Potter's Jack Staal Mystery Series, DEAD OF KNIGHT.

William was bitten by the writing bug at an early age. Shortly after watching the first remake of King Kong, around the age of ten or eleven, he scribbled a few pages about a mutant crab and called it a book.

He discovered poetry in his teens and continues to write verse today. However, that kid's dream of writing a book never went away. In 2001 he decided to get serious about fiction and dabbled in short stories with some success. With his budding confidence, he attempted greater and greater word counts. Before long he had a collection of shorts and a novella that approached novel length. It was time, after waiting twenty-five years since that monstrous crustacean of his childhood; he attempted another novel in 2003 and finished the first draft just before Christmas 2004.

After he finished the first draft of his first novel, he decided to let the manuscript sit and cool. He wrote another novella and several shorts and then sat down to write a second novel in 2006. The novellas and shorts became his first book, the award winning collection, LIGHTING THE DARK SIDE - SIX MODERN TALES. DEAD OF KNIGHT is his first published novel.

When he's not writing he's reviewing books. William lives in New Westminster, Canada with his wife and two children.

Detective Constable Jack Staal is anxious to work the biggest case of his career. Staal is forced to the outside when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police's Integrated Homicide Teams are assigned to the case. Not one to sit on the sidelines, Staal convinces his colleagues to follow his lead and pursue a serial killer who the media has dubbed “Birthday Boy.”

Celebrating A New Gay Paranormal From Bestseller Carolina Valdez

Today we're celebrating a new Amber Allure release for bestselling author Carolina Valdez.

Carolina warns not to be fooled by the photo. "Even if you walk most of the race, you want to be sure to break into a run for the camera." Although most of her running days have morphed into walking days, she's completed over a hundred distance races - six of them marathons. Her short story about a murder on the streets she's actually competed on, in the Los Angeles Marathon, appears in a Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles anthology.

After a varied career as a registered nurse while winning awards and making sales writing freelance, she decided to retire to finish her first novel. Now she writes about searing passions and the sweetly explosive ecstasies of love.

As the Vampire member of the Triad for The Order of Night, Kale is no stranger to war, yet isn't eager to battle anew without cause.

As the body count rises and more women disappear, Kierra and Kale race against the clock to uncover the secret the Shape-Shifters are keeping. Imminent war and forbidden attraction threaten to implode their progress, while Kierra's secrets may very well tip the scales of power.

Celebrating J.D. Webb's Latest Mystery

Today we're celebrating the release of SMUDGE, a new mystery from the pen of J.D. Webb.

J. D. (Dave) resides in Illinois with his wife of 40 years and their toy poodle, Ginger, losing all family votes 2 to 1. Dave served in the Security Service of the Air Force as a Chinese linguist and weather analyst in Viet Nam and the Philippines prior to spending 25 years in corporate management.

Fighting her apprehension, she ventures into the alley next to the bank and discovers a dying woman. While Trish frantically calls 911 for help, the injured woman slips a DVD into Trish's purse. Unknown to Trish the DVD is a video of a hit of a Chicago mobster, which identifies the hit man.

The assassin stalks Trish, calling her at work and demanding that she return the disk. But the police are already involved. Trish is torn about what to do, and her best friend Heather, a wanna-be PI, tries to help.

Each time Trish thinks a problem is resolved she realizes her troubles are far from over. Her marriage is falling apart and she decides to leave her abusive husband.

GETTING PHYSICAL Book Three in Tianna Xander's The Endowed Series

Caramia is a vampire slayer, which is all fine and good until she finds out the man she's in love with is a vampire. What's a girl to do when the man she loves runs off to find another man - vampire - whatever? Well...she learns to live with it then trains, trains, trains. Who needs fickle men anyway?

Nicodemo returns to find the woman he loves tougher than he remembers her. Not only is she an experienced slayer, but she's learned to live without him since his departure. When he left to find his best friend and triad mate, he never expected to come back and find that the sweet woman he left behind was such an accomplished killer. However, it doesn't bother him...too much. After all, she told him she loved him. Things couldn't have changed that much, could they?

Leopold knows Cara is for him the moment he sees her. He wants nothing more than to make a life and babies with her. The only question he has is whether or not she can keep from staking him long enough to get to know him.

As the two men set out to convince Cara they don't want to live without her, they woo her in the only way they know how. Can she overcome the fact that the two men she finds herself in such a strange relationship with are the very kind of monsters she's trained to kill...or are they?

Hot New Cowboy Kink From Desiree Holt

Today we're celebrating today's release of BACK IN THE SADDLE, a hot erotic contemporary Western from award-winning author Desiree Holt!

All her life, Desiree dreamed of faraway places and unbelievably sexy men. From baseball players to rock musicians to television personalities she met them all and each one enriched her life. Now tucked away in the Texas Hill Country, she shares her fantasies with her readers. In her satin robe, with her scented candle burning and a chilled glass of wine at hand, she lets her mind run wild — and hopes you’ll take the journey with her. When she’s not writing, she reads and indulges in her other passion — watching football.

BACK IN THE SADDLE by Desiree Holt

When Molly Hayes' marriage fell apart, she ran home to Hayes Ranch to lick her wounds. What she really wants to lick is foreman Chance McDaniel, the star of all her erotic fantasies. But he had never given her the time of day. Why would he give her his nights? Kink is a mild term for the kind of sex Chance McDaniel enjoys. But he's learned the hard way not all women can handle his darker desires. He aches to give Molly the ride of her life but fears she'll shy away from his wilder ways. Will the past become a stumbling block or will both Molly and Chance, once wounded, climb back in the saddle?

Celebrating Anne Hamilton's Touching New Release With LL Publications

Today we're celebrating Anne Hamilton's new release with LL Publications, A BLONDE BENGALI WIFE!

Between her travels, Anne Hamilton currently lives in Scotland where she is working on a novel whilst studying for a PhD in Creative Writing at Glasgow University. Anne and her husband celebrated the birth of their first baby in August 2010.

"Well, they all said that Bangladesh would be an experience. I don’t know about you, but this is the first time I've slept with someone three minutes after meeting them."

For Anne Hamilton, a three-month winter programme of travel and "cultural exchange" in a country where the English language, fair hair, and a rice allergy are all extremely rare was always going to be interesting, challenging, and frustrating. What they didn't tell Anne was that it would also be sunny, funny, and the start of a love affair with this unexplored area of Southeast Asia.

A BLONDE BENGALI WIFE shows the lives beyond the poverty, monsoons, and diarrhoea of Bangladesh and charts a vibrant and fascinating place where one minute Anne is levelling a school playing field "fit for the national cricket team," and then cobbling together a sparkly outfit for a formal wedding the next. Along with Anne are the essential ingredients for survival: a travel-savvy Australian sidekick, a heaven-sent adopted family, and a short, dark, and handsome boy-next-door.

During her adventures zipping among the dusty clamour of the capital Dhaka, the longest sea beach in the world at Cox’s Bazaar, the verdant Sylhet tea gardens, and the voluntary health projects of distant villages, Anne amasses a lot of friends, stories...and even a husband.

A BLONDE BENGALI WIFE is the "unexpected travelogue" that reads like a comedy of manners to tell the other side of the story of Bangladesh.

Royalties from the sale of A BLONDE BENGALI WIFE will go to benefit Bhola’s Children, a home and school for orphaned and disabled children on the island of Bhola (UK registered charity No. 1118345).

Celebrating Jules Bennett's New Release And New Series

Today we're celebrating the release of FROM BOARDROOM TO WEDDING BED? a new Silhouette Desire from Jules Bennett!


At the age of twenty-three, Jules opened her own beauty salon, married her high school sweetheart and had a wonderful family, but still felt like there was something else she should be doing.

So she did it. One night she sat down and started working on a summary of the story in her head. Her husband found her notes and asked what it was. She told him, "I'm going to write a book" then held her breath, waiting for him to laugh. Instead he looked at her, smiled, and said, "This is good. When can I read more?" Ahhh, her first fan.

Jules lives in Ohio where she runs a beauty salon by day and writes passionate, memorable romances . She says her home is usually in a state of chaos because she'd much rather create a new story than run the sweeper. Luckily her husband, daughters and beagle don't seem to mind that she's not domestic...that is until she forgets to feed them.

D. Renee Bagby's First Menage Is Now In Print

Today we are celebrating the print release of D. Renee Bagby's first erotic menage and the first book in her new Eternal Truths Series - ERIS, released by Siren-Bookstrand. ERIS has been getting some incredible reviews and recognition including Rites of Romance Recommended Read, 5 Tea Cups from HEA Reviews, 5 Divas from Dark Diva Reviews, and "Literary Perfection" from Fire Pages Reviews!

Renee is a military brat turned military wife who is currently stationed in MD with her husband and two cats.

Whether writing as D. Renee Bagby or Zenobia Renquist, she is a world-builder. She loves inventing new cultures and shaping their histories and laws because it beats researching the existing ones.

Her stories span the fantasy gamut but she dabbles in sci-fi and contemporary from time to time. While her main characters tend to be of different races, she doesn't let skin color rule or limit her stories. For her, it's all about how much she can torture her characters so they earn their happily-ever-after ending.

The rules are all new and pre-conceived notions will only slow you down, so when reading Renee's stories, she asks only one thing -- Leave Your Reality Behind.

D. Renee Bagby and  Zenobia Renquist have Romance Trading Cards available - Check it out!

Book one in D. Renee Bagby's Eternal Truths Series.

Time is on their side and they can be together, assuming the truth doesn't ruin everything first.

Immortals born in the thirteenth century, Lucien Riordan and Ranulf Styr have waited centuries to be reunited with their love. Want for her cemented their friendship through time, even as it tore it apart. She changed their lives, made them want better, and they plan to show her that. There's only one catch - she's never met them before.

Eris Brue is flattered by Lucien and Ranulf's attention, but they are her bosses. She doesn't want to get tangled up in an office romance, especially not with two men. Their joint seduction overcomes her resolve, and she gives in even though she knows they are keeping secrets that could doom their relationship.

Centuries of planning have finally come to fruition. Lucien and Ranulf have a short amount of time to make Eris love them, because once time has her, everything could come to an end.

HOT FOR TEACHER - A new Jane Porter Story from Dominique Adair

Entrepreneur, fashionista and submissive-in-training, Jane Porter is headed to New Orleans with her lovers, Antonio and Santos. Armed with an invitation to the exclusive Marché d’Esclave, a members-only pleasure club, Jane steps into a world where submissives are auctioned to new masters for training. Happy with her current masters, Jane has no intentions of going up on the block herself until she comes to face to face with a man she'd thought never to see again...

Among the patrons is the mysterious Archer, a master from Europe with legendary skills in the art of training. His submissives command the highest prices at auction and for those in search of a master, he is the one they crave. Intrigued by the beautiful Jane, he employs his considerable talents in the hopes of seducing her away from her lovers and returning to his home for a little higher education.

Will Jane resist temptation or will she accept Archer's invitation to explore more of the pleasure she's come to crave...

Warning: Extreme bondage, spanking, sexy men doing very naughty things to themselves and others, more spanking and the creative misuse of fruit.

Antonio Villareal is a master on the hunt for a submissive. The moment he sees Jane on the arm of another man, he wants to possess her, body and soul.

Reinventing...Jane's weekend of heady sexual freedom is drawing to a close. She arrives at the final event, a masquerade ball, escorted by her masters, then discovers that the party isn't the only item on their agenda.

Antonio and Santos have no intention of letting Jane retreat to her everyday life. This night, if they have their way, Beauty will emerge from her shell - for good.

Celebrating A Sexy New Fantasy From The Pen Of Sam Cheever

Today we're celebrating the release of MONAD CHRONICLES: GUARDIAN, Book One in Sam Cheever's new fantasy series - The Monad Chronicles.

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.

While today is Caitlyn's release day, she probably won't be able to join us and answer any questions we leave her until tomorrow. See, every single weekend in Oct and the first weekend in Nov are tied up with stuff - like today she's making a Native American olla!
Oct/Nov are the absolute busiest months around her neck of the woods. In the past she's fought it, since writing gives her very little extra time, but this year, she decided to simply roll with it and take advantage of opportunities that only come once a year. Some of these things she felt compelled to do - as though she couldn't move forward in her life path without taking them.

Here's her schedule for the coming weeks:
Oct 2, 10 - Native American Pottery Making Class (making her own olla)
Oct 3 - Orchid Class (learning to care, cultivate, and plant, after which she'll take her own orchid home)
Oct 16 - Pioneer Days Celebration (library book sale, parade, carnival, Oldtimers Reception at Museum)
Oct 17 - Writers Meeting (her and a friend started a local group called The Desert Quills)
Oct 22 -25 - Seattle to do workshop
Oct 30, 31 - Native American Basket Making Class (making her own basket from native material)
Nov 5-7 - Annual Weed Show (she photographs this event and also helps set up)

And I thought I was busy!

Today we're celebrating the release of XOXO Publishing's first Halloween Anthlogy!

XOXO Publishing Presents HALLOWEEN ANTHOLOGY Volume 1

Charisma Knight's MY DARK LORD AND MASTER

Ever wonder what dreams and fantasies are made of? Some believe one mirrors the other. Perhaps a fantasy is based upon a dream you had one restless night. Maybe a dream, once a fantasy has presented itself to you in the form of a half man, half beast, conjured by the darkest depths of your imagination.

Once manifestation has occurred, how will you react when your dark Lord and Master projects you into his domain, placing his mark upon you for all eternity? When it is all said and done, would you regret the strong power of imagination?

Sandy Sullivan's CAT ON THE PROWL

Suzanne knows she's being hunted as she stumbles through thick foliage deep in the forest. A faint light in the distance draws her toward a safe haven, if she can make it in time...

The growl of a mountain lion in the distance sends shivers down her arms. She prays for a miracle for protection against the one stalking her. Only precious time will tell if she'll be a victim to depraved means or saved by fate.

Stories in this compilation of XoXo Publishing authors include: Sandy Sullivan - Cat On The Prowl, William Edmund III - Dare I Speculate, Layla Hunter - Dark Desire, Saydi Raen - Kalib's Guardian, Brianna Martini - Halloween Hell, Timothy Spearman - Mark of the Beast, Charisma Knight - My Dark Lord and Master, Sherri Good - The Power Of Magic, Raven Lynx - Poems of Halloween, and Marianne Stephens - Halloween Wish.
