OLD GOOSEBERRY'S DILEMMA - A new comedy from fantasy author Patricia Perry

The Devil strikes a bargain with God to keep two misfit brothers out of Hell; unfortunately the arduous task is more than even the Prince of Darkness can handle.

Unwilling to allow two rowdy brothers and their crazy acquaintances into Hell where he fears they may take over, the Devil strikes a bargain with God - keep the brothers out of trouble for three days and He'll consider letting them into Heaven.

The Prince of Darkness quickly realizes that trying to protect the raucous Dean Brothers is an arduous task as the brothers unwittingly lead Lucifer into their world where bar fights, free money and casual relationships are the norm.

Assigned by God to keep an eye on the goings-on, the Archangel Michael cannot help but be amused at Old Gooseberry's dogged determination to keep the Dean's out of his realm.

Autographed copies are available on Patricia Perry's Website.

A god, a demon queen, and the devil - Hell just got hotter!

Lilith walked out on her husband, Lucifer, one year ago presumably to shack up with Lucifer's nemesis, Odin, and do good works as a wannabe Valkyrie.

But now she's back - because Lucifer has taken something that doesn't belong to him, something Lilith wants - an honorable soul. So clad in her skintight leathers, Lilith takes a little trip back to Hell to retrieve it.

But she knows by doing this she is playing right into Lucifer's hands, because he never wanted that soul in the first place, he only took it to bring her back. And now that she's back she can finally give him the one thing he wants more than anything else - an heir.

Celebrating A New Fantasy Release From Michelle Levigne

Today we're celebrating the release of Michelle Levigne's new fantasy romance THE WOLF THAT WAS.

A story addict since an early exposure to Dr. Seuss, award-winning author of over 30 novels and novellas, Michelle Levigne has been creating her own stories, heroes and adventures since junior high. She ventures into many sub-genres of science fiction, paranormal, romance and fantasy, including Greek mythology, Narnia spin-offs and her futuristic universe, the Commonwealth.

Michelle writes something for everyone! After all, since she likes to read all over the board, why not WRITE all over the board?

WEBSITE *** BLOG *** FACEBOOK

THE WOLF THAT WAS - Book 3 of Michelle Levigne's The Emerald Necklace series

Tirian grew up knowing she would inherit her mother's duties as village wise woman, but without inheriting her mother's magical gifts. It didn't help that her mother insisted Tirian herself was magic. When an enemy wizard killed her mother, she despaired of ever finding an answer to that puzzle.

Then she met Bran, a man cursed by that same wizard: a wolf by day and a man only by light of the waning moon. Forced to choose between her new friend and the villagers who would never truly love her, Tirian decided it was time to seek answers for them both. Their journey took them to Stonemount, where King Fallon feared his new queen conspired to steal his throne, and a lonely child waited to grow into the most powerful enchanter in the world.

Their search united them, but their answers could tear them apart forever. Could a wolf that was a man at heart, and the maiden with a wolf in her soul ever find a world that would let them simply be, much less be together?

Celebrating A New Release For Susanne Saville

Today we're celebrating the release of Susanne Saville's HIDDEN HISTORY OF SALEM.

Susanne enjoys caffeine - especially in coffee and tea, traveling, horseback riding, reading, and John Barrowman. Not necessarily in that order. She has a Master's Degree in History and a second Master's Degree in Library Science. The casual observer might suppose that this primarily qualifies her to dispense fries at fast-food restaurants. (Just kidding.)

Ms. Saville has worked as a Reference Librarian in California and as a History Instructor at Georgia Military College. She has also been interviewed by Dog Fancy as an expert on the pug dog's place in history. She currently resides in New England and, along with writing, delights in researching, spending quality time with her cats, and eating fries at fast-food restaurants.

A New Release In Mark Jackman's The Sid Tillsley Chronicles

Today we're celebrating the LL Publications release of A FISTFULL OF RUBBERS, book two in Mark Jackman's trilogy, The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

MARK JACKMAN is one of the most talented, exciting, and hilarious writers to explode onto the fiction scene in the 21st century,” was what Mark Jackman hoped to read in the papers last year. He also hoped to punch a shark and own a Ford 2.8i Capri. He hoped that with the release of The Great Right Hope his newly-found celebrity status would bring him fast women, hard drugs and liquor, and then slower, more understanding women. Instead he has had to be satisfied with The Great Right Hope making regular appearances on various lists with various rankings on the Amazon.co.uk Bestseller List, such as in the Top 100 in the categories of Horror (Kindle), Parodies & Satire Horror, Humour (Kindle and Print). A Fistful of Rubbers is the second installment in the trilogy known as The Sid Tillsley Chronicles.

HE has successfully installed a decking area into his garden.

VISIT Mark at www.mark-jackman.com where you’ll discover more of his wordy pursuits, blogs, science writing, and future plans for fiction...of which there are many.

A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS: Book Two of The Sid Tillsley Chronicles
By Mark Jackman

Middlesbrough’s favourite son Sid Tillsley is now a vampire-hunter, but even the coolest, most dangerous job in the world can’t get him a shag, forcing him into the more hazardous world of Internet dating. To make matters worse, the Human-Vampire Coalition has shut the local boozer forcing Sid and his friends to drink sub-standard ale!

But Sid has a fight coming. Something lurks in the shadows, or rather, the closet. A Northerner will punch anything in the face, but one thing he fears is a direct attack on his sexuality…and the Campire draws near.

Meanwhile, the psychotic vampire Gunnar Ivansey wants revenge. Sid hit Gunnar so hard in the nuts he’s never forgiven him. And with the death of vampire warlord Michael Vitrago, the floodgates are open for any vampire to enter Britain, the heart of the vampire nation, and wage war against humanity.

Can the Coalition prevent the vampire world from destroying mankind? Can Sid get lucky on the Internet? Can the Coalition use Sid to hunt Gunnar Ivansey? Can Sid find a decent pint? Does humanity have a chance if its only hope is Sid’s great right hook…and a fistful of rubbers?

Readers who haven’t read THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE (yet) won’t be left wondering or confused as Mark Jackman makes a seamless transition into this second instalment of the hilarious Sid Tillsley Chronicles. Amy J. Ramsey of Ramsey’s Book Reviews says, “A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is a cleverly crafted sequel to Jackman’s THE GREAT RIGHT HOPE. It contains everything a
vampire reader wants: action, adventure, humor, and most importantly, SHAGGING…(erm) slaying of all sorts. The ultimate vampire series. Howay the lads! A definite must read!”

Mark Jackman proudly presents The Sid Tillsley Chronicles as “the anti-Twilight” in response to what he sees as a downward spiral of the vampire genre. He explains that “Creatures of the night have slowly revolved through the years to creatures of the…posters of teenage girls. I don’t like that.”

A FISTFUL OF RUBBERS is available in print and several ebook formats and can found at www.amazon.com, www.amazon.co.uk, www.omnilit.com as well as many other print and ebook retailers.

Celebrating A New Cougar Challenge Release For EC and Cris Anson

Today we're celebrating the Ellora's Cave release of a new Cougar Challenge book, ADDING HEAT by Cris Anson.

Cris firmly believes that love is the greatest gift...to give or to receive. In her writing, she lives for the moment when her characters realize they love each other, usually after much antagonism and conflict. And when they express that love physically, Cris keeps a fire extinguisher near the keyboard in case of spontaneous combustion.

After suffering the loss of her real-life hero/husband of twenty-two years, Cris has picked up the pieces of her life and tries to remember only the good times...slow-dancing with him to the Big-Band sound of Glenn Miller's music, vacations to scenic national parks in a snug recreational vehicle, his tender and fierce love, his unflagging belief in her ability to write stories that touch the heart as well as the libido. Bits and pieces of his tenacity, optimism, code of honor and lust for life will live on in her imaginary heroes.

ADDING HEAT - A story by Cris Anson in Ellora's Cave's Cougar Challenge Series

Encouraged by friends she met at RomantiCon, widowed landscape contractor Giselle Sheridan decides she's finally ready to take the cougar challenge and explore sex with a younger man. Except she's too busy during planting season to go on the prowl.

CPA Conlan Trowbridge is battling the IRS deadline for his clients, but when Giselle saunters into his office with a tax question, all he can think of is sex. She's all luscious curves and smoldering brown eyes, and he doesn't care if she's a dozen years older, she's a wet dream come true.

Oh yeah, they're both ready for some hot and heavy sex - in the tub, parking lots, their offices - anywhere and everywhere. But Giselle is afraid her age will eventually bother Con, and her longtime foreman also has designs on her, in more ways than one. When Giselle faces some hard decisions, will she ultimately be able to keep the heat?

For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her.

She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses.

ECHOES - Book three in Judith Rochelle's The Protectors Series

Just when Alexis Craig thought she'd finally gotten her life on a somewhat even keel, the terrible nightmares returned and then, out of nowhere, a stalker threatened her. First it was notes left at her office, then photos, then faxes and emails. Nick Vanetta, sinfully sexy partner in Guardian Security, thinks there's more behind this than just a simple fixation, and when someone takes a shot at Alexis, he wonders if the answer is buried somewhere in her past. As the two dig deeper into her family history, the chemistry between them heats to boiling. Can they find the stalker before it's too late?

And just in case you missed this summer's release of book two in Judith's Protector's Series:

She calls on the only person she feels she can trust, Zak Delaney, her former lover who she broke with after a bitter argument. But can Zak put aside his bitterness to help her? As she runs from the people trying to kill her, people who destroy her home, and her business and definitely want to destroy her, will the chemistry still there between them sizzle to the surface or will it explode and demolish them both?

Without the yacht, Robina is stranded, so she agrees to help him get them back. And, while enduring a hefty wallop of jungle life during their four-day canoe journey to Luizao, where Gunther and his gunslingers hang out, Elejandro brings Robina’s most secret sexual fantasies to fruition.

While embroiled in outwitting the gang, the professor and the redheaded telepath still make time for sharing their red hot chemistry.

Celebrating A New "Knights Of The Board Room" Story From Joey W. Hill

Today we're celebrating the release of Book IV in Joey W Hill's Knights of the Board Room Series.

Joey W Hill writes about vampires, mermaids, boardroom executives, cops, witches, angels, simple housemaids... If there's an erotic love story to be told, she'll take the plunge. As a result, she's proud and humbled to have four series and over twenty award-winning and highly acclaimed titles under her belt, as well as the support and enthusiasm of a wonderful and widely diverse readership. In 2009, Joey was nominated for a Career Achievement award in Erotica by Romantic Times.

AFTERLIFE - Book IV in Joey W. Hill's Knights of the Board Room Series.

Rachel gave up seeking a Master years ago. After a failed marriage and terrible tragedy, she's walled her soul against going down that dangerous path again. Then Jon joins her yoga class. He's thirteen years younger than she, but his Dominant nature threatens her shields from the moment she recognizes it. Not only does he understand what her body wants - he knows what her soul craves.

Part of the five-man executive team of Kensington & Associates, Jon uses his calm, philosophical nature to defuse volatile acquisition negotiations. He can compel opponents to willingly surrender when he draws the sword that closes the deal. As a sexual Dominant, he employs that same expertise. A spiritually-driven Master who enjoys connecting with a woman's soul, he wins her utter submission with his skills. But with Rachel, it goes beyond that. She's the submissive his own soul has always hungered to have, and he won't hesitate to use his talents, as well as that of the other four K&A men, to claim her.

This is a Knights of the Board Room book, but like all the books in this series, it can stand alone. Every book does involve the full cast of "Knights", though, so you might get a few minor (and very tempting) spoilers about previous stories (wink).

Celebrating A Dark New Erotic Paranormal From Laura Tolomei

Today we're celebrating Laura Tolomei's new eXtasy Books release, VISIONQUEST.

Meet Laura Tolomei.

If you really want to know, I was born in 1965 in Rome, Italy, but soon started my travelling career. At the age of five, my parents took me to Lagos, Nigeria, where I grew up free and hot like I've never been since. I loved it there and still think of it with nostalgia. Anyway, it was also where I learned English.

After my African experience, I was ready to tackle the US. I lived in Atlanta, GA, five teen-age years, attending the Crestwood High School, where I started my writing career by publishing a short story Nostalgia on the Crestwood Journal. Very thrilled about discovering my new talent, I went ahead during college, writing for the Emory University journal The Phoenix. Three articles mark my first-and last-steps in journalism, "The peace Corps", "WAMM, Women Against Military Madness," and "Lesbism".

After my American experience, I moved back to Rome, but still kept living from time to time abroad, spending several months in Mumbay India, a country I always felt very close to me in more ways than one.

Today, I write both in Italian and English, mostly fiction of various genres, from fantasy erotica, to mysteries up to plain ordinary life stories.For those of you who read Italian, you can simply visit the Italian sections of my website, but if you feel particularly lazy, here's a short summary:

I have a short story on line Incontro Metropolitano (Meeting at the Subway) and two books:

VISIONQUEST - A GLBT dark shapeshifter erotic by Laura Tolomei

It wasn't till he took me to his bed and made love to me, for the first time - no competition between us, no unspoken challenge, no master-slave, no blood, no death, nothing but intense emotions overwhelming me with the sheer power of his feelings, a sea so deep, a tide so strong I thought I'd drown as he took me face up, raising my legs above his shoulders and plunging deep before preying on my mouth, too, in a never-ending kiss that took my breath, not to mention my resolve, away - that in spite of everything, I gave him what he wanted most, my soul in its entirety, for I knew right there and then I was sealing my destiny forever.

Celebrating Maxine Sullivan's New Silhouette Desire

Today we're celebrating HIGH SOCIETY SEDUCTION, a brand new Silhouette Desire Release for USA TODAY bestselling author, Maxine Sullivan.


Maxine credits her mother for her lifelong love of romance novels, so it was a natural extension for Maxine to want to write her own romances. She thinks there's nothing better than being a writer and is thrilled to be one of the few Australians to write for the Silhouette Desire line.

Maxine lives in Melbourne, Australia but over the years has traveled to New Zealand, the UK, and the USA. In her own backyard, her husband's job ensured they saw the diversity of the countryside, from the tropics to the outback, country towns to the cities. She is married to Geoff, who has proven his hero-status many times over the years. They have two handsome sons and an assortment of much-loved, previously abandoned animals.

Maxine would love to hear from you and can be contacted through her website.


HIGH-SOCIETY SEDUCTION by Maxine Sullivan

A question of lust or loyalty....

He needed a mistress. A pretend mistress, that is. So when Jenna Branson confronted playboy billionaire Adam Roth, demanding he return money his brother stole from her family, Adam saw his opportunity. He'd look into her accusations, but she must act as though they're involved - intimately. Anything to rid himself of the unwanted attention of his best friend's wife. The proposition seemed simple, but soon their game of seduction was no longer just for show. Then a high-stakes confrontation forced them to choose between family loyalty...and the chance of forever.

Celebrating A New Erotic Fantasy Romance From Zenobia Renquist AKA D. Renee Bagby

Today we are celebrating the release of RITE MEN FOR MAYA, a new erotic fantasy menage from Zenobia Renquist (you may know her as D. Renee Bagby).

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.

Maya is a half human, half merman who has decided to attend the fertility-virility rite and learn more about her merman heritage. The rite is meant to help mermen find their perfect mates, but Maya is only interested in using it as research.

Tam and Kessen are participants who are searching for their third. They are drawn to Maya and she to them. But she refuses to acknowledge the bond and runs. Tam and Kessen must pursue her through her dreams if they hope to make their love a reality and prove they are the right men for Maya.

The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands.
