Celebrating The Release of Book Two In The Nemesis Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of UNTIL MIDNIGHT, the second book in The Nemesis Series from award-winning and bestselling authors Desiree Holt and Cerise DeLand.

Desiree has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!). She spent several years in the music business representing every kind of artist from country singer to heavy metal rock bands. 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. Romance Junkies said of her work: "Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last."


UNTIL MIDNIGHT by Desiree Holt and Cerise DeLand
Book 2 in the Nemesis Series

She's a strong woman who runs her own high-profile security and protection agency. He's a burned-out agent with Mossad on a personal crusade. But when Adam Molloy saves Nicole Wells' life at a Mexican resort, circumstances bind them together. Not to mention the instant chemistry that is so hot it rivals the Mexican sun. One predatory kiss and Nicki's body melts. They may be after drug dealers and killers, but there's plenty of time for powerful orgasms and inventive erotic activities.

It's soon evident that her would-be killer and Adam's crusade intersect. The chase takes them from the Yucatan Peninsula to Washington, D.C., to a private island in the Bahamas. And the sex takes them to a new level of physical pleasure. Can they win this chase and escape the danger before the killers strike again? And will the pleasure last Until Midnight and for many midnights after that?

  2. Hello ladies!
    First I have to say that I adore romantic suspense books. I think the fact that you chose Adam to work for Mossad is very interesting. I can honestly say that I had never heard of the agency until I started watching NCIS. I became fascinated with the history of Mossad. I think I would really enjoy this story! Congratulations on your new release!

  10. Desiree and I are thrilled to be doing this series.
    This is #2 but we have 4 more slated...and who knows if it goes beyond that?!
    D. and I love to work together. In fact, we are in one QUICKIE series, Wedding Belles, at EC and we have just had another accepted.
    Are you ready?
    Chasing Tail.
    No. Not kidding.
    4 brothers from Texas. 4 men with a hankerin' to find good ladies.

  11. D. and I don't have problems working together. In fact, we find it refreshing and inspiring!
    What one knows complements what the other knows.
    The other day, we even did a Road Trip together. Where did we go?
    The opening of the Forensics lab of the Dept. of Public Safety in Texas. (Same part of law enforcement as the Texas RANGERS!)
    Our kind of men.
