A Hot And Sexy New Anthology From Lucy Monroe, Jamie Denton and Elisabeth Naughton

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a great new Brava anothology just in time for your summer reading, BODYGUARDS IN BED, which includes stories from Lucy Monroe, Jamie Denton and Elisabeth Naughton.

Award winning author Lucy Monroe sold her first book in September of 2002. Since then she has sold more than 50 books to three publishers and hit national bestsellers lists in the US and England. She's a passionate devotee to the romance genre and loves talking writing, the industry and books with other writers as well as readers. Her highly charged, sensual stories touch on the realities of life while giving the reader a fantasy story not easily forgotten. Whether it's a passionate Harlequin Presents, a sexy single title for Kensington or a steamy historical or paranormal for Berkley, Lucy's books transport her readers to a special place where the heart rules and love conquers all.


BODYGUARDS IN BED by Lucy Monroe, Jamie Denton and Elisabeth Naughton

There's just one cardinal rule when it comes to being a bodyguard: no matter how tempting it may be, never, ever get romantically involved with the person you're protecting. But as these sensual novellas prove, even the most important rules are made to be broken - again and again and again.

Join acclaimed authors Lucy Monroe, Jamie Denton, and Elisabeth Naughton as they open the files on an undercover operative who finds a sexy surprise under his covers, a hot case involving mixed messages and mistaken identities, and a mission impossible protecting a provocative beauty who lives to love dangerously.


Roman Chernichenko's baby sis is in trouble. She shows up at his apartment needing help and a safe place to be right now, but Roman is in Africa. Only the apartment's not empty. One of his Atrati team is staying at Roman's place while *his* apartment is under renovation. They've met  - at Beau & Elle's wedding. She thinks he's freaking hot, he thinks she freaking off limits, being Roman's baby sister and all. She might be an academic geek, but she knows what she wants and she sets out to get it  -  Mr. Hottie Super Soldier won't know what hit him ... and beat him to the mattress after.

  11. Lucy,

    I LOVE your books! Where do you come up with the names for your characters? some are so Lise, Fayre and Mykola. They are very cool names though!!

    Also I've been trouble finding some of your you know where I can find them besides Amazon? I've checked the B&N near me and they never have any and I have been trying to find books 1, 2 & 5 of the Goddard Project.


  12. Congratulations Ladies! I can't resist a hot bodyguard, or three!

    Elizabeth, who did you draw from to write your bodyguard? Did you have anyone special in mind while writing?

    I can't wait to get my hands on this one.

  13. Happy Release Day! Your anthology sounds great. Love bodyguards.
    Lucy-Will there be more books in your Children of the Moon series?


  14. Did you (all the authors) decide to write a book together or did the publisher suggest it? Did you (all the authors) come up with the theme? I love anthologies and I love to find out how the book came together. Thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Love anthologies to check out new to me authors. Since I have not read any of these authors, I would love to win a copy to check out their writing styles. Did the three authors work together on the stories, have meetings to discuss the book, give each other input, etc?
