Wild Child Publishing's Newest Releases

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating two wonderful new releases for Wild Child Publishing!

THE WOODLOCK by Steve Shilstone

The Bekka Chronicles: Book Four

In the 4th story of The Bekka Chronicles, a time-traveling shapeshiftress sends Bekka of Thorns 1000 years into the past to perform a task.

What task? The frustrated Bekka is unsure and blames the shapeshiftress for failing to give her enough instruction. Adventuring for the first time without her best friend Kar, Bekka is left to stumble all alone in the Woods Beyond the Wood. She is forced to rely solely on her thorough knowledge of historical lore to determine the unknown task she believes must be performed to keep the future as she knows it and likes it.  She encounters and recognizes from ancient tales a shy woodlock and twin water wizards. Seeing no other option, Bekka assumes her task is somehow tied to the trio, and she proceeds to take action on that assumption.

Is she right? She’ll never know until she returns to her own time and finds it changed...or not.

THE FLIGHT OF THE SORCERESS by Barry S. Willdorf

As the Roman Empire crumbles, the Catholic Church fills the power vacuum by launching attacks on classical culture. Books are burned. Women are restricted from traditional occupations. The lives of pagans and Jews are imperiled. The Dark Ages loom.

But two women, Glenys, a Celtic herbalist and healer, and Hypatia, teacher, philosopher, mathematician and the last librarian of the great library at Alexandria, resist. Though one is branded a sorceress and the other an idolator, they refuse to submit to the demands of the state-sanctioned religious leaders. Their struggle culminates in the cataclysmic events of Lenten week in 415 A.D.

Can anything be preserved?

Then Lee's mother calls -- she wants to visit. Curt is eager to meet her but Lee isn't so sure ... she's of a different generation, a different culture even, and doesn’t speak much English. Still, Curt insists.

But when Mrs. Gui arrives, Curt finds himself struggling with writer’s block. He feels like an outsider in his own home when Lee and his mother converse in Cantonese, leaving him out of the conversation, and even his sex life suffers with her in the bedroom next to theirs. Can Curt and Mrs. Gui move past their cultural differences to see that they both love Lee and have his best interests at heart?

NAKED: MUSINGS FROM A BROKEN HEART by Willem Schutte

“From within perfect darkness I have learned to shine."

Heartbreak can leave even the strongest of men scarred. Like Icarus, I too flew too high and fell. That downward journey tore the fibre of my being and shredded my soul. The gauntlet of love should never be underestimated.

However, I had to get up again and rise like a phoenix from its proverbial ashes. And like a phoenix, I took to flight!

This is a poetic account of the journey I had to go through and a tribute to becoming a better man regardless.

NOT IN THE NFL by Terry O'Reilly

Adam Davis isn’t gay! He can’t be -- he’s a super star NFL quarterback and gay men don’t survive in the NFL. But along comes Brendan Fletcher, an outstanding, Super Bowl-winning linebacker who awakens something in Adam, something Adam hadn’t known was there. And now it’s wakened, the quarterback will never be the same.

Despite the threat to their careers and their personal safety, Adam and Brendan find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other, starting something that grows from gratification of mutual needs to something more. Can these men of strength and power on the gridiron overcome the homophobia of their profession? Can they make what they have found stand for something more important than the fame and fortune of playing NFL football or even becoming Super Bowl champions?

Celebrating A Sexier New Book In Jean Hart Stewart's Songs Of The Mages Series

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of a sexier new book in Jean Hart Stewart's Songs of the Mages Series.

Jean feels she’s very much a Californian although she was born in Ohio. California has been home for a good many years. Life changed drastically for her when she was six and her father died incredibly from an errant golf ball. A dishonest insurance agent forced her sheltered mother to seek work, and she became a teacher. Her hours required Jean to be alone in the house in the afternoon, and since she was forbidden to leave till her mother got home, she became an avid reader. The local library supplied most of the books and she developed early her two of main interests, Jane Austen and King Arthur.

Reading is still one of her favorite activities, although she sometimes has to push it aside to make room for her enduring love of writing. Her journalism degree was used infrequently until recently. Marriage and raising two children pleasantly got in the way. After twenty years of being a real estate broker and with the kids raised she finally could devote her time to writing, her first love.

Jean's enchantment with the lore and legends of Druids and, therefore, delving into their history led to fascinating research that inspired her popular
Garland of Druids Series for Cerridwen Press. She's now enjoying writing stories filled with magic and romance for her Songs of the Mages Series, also for Cerridwen Press.

Few things in her life have been so satisfying, especially when all her books have a happy ending. Wonderful to make happen. It only gets more interesting when a secondary character demands his very own book. Who would want to deny him? Not Jean!

QUEST FOR LOVE by Jean Hart Stewart and Lee Pearce 


Songs of the Mages Book 5 (can be read as a standalone story)

What happens when a connoisseur of women decides he wants to bed a never-been-touched actress who just happens to think he's worthless.

Jono thinks she'll be an easy conquest. But Hayley has never allowed a man near her, and she'd not about to break her rules for a Lothario like Jono. She's afraid nothing will change Jono, even if she lets him into her heart.

Then her young sister comes to visit, pursued by a pedophile. Jono must help, but can Hayley ever forget the waster he's been? Can Jono call on his mage powers to save them all from a sex maniac's vengeance?

Clara Tildon, a cancer survivor, has no time for defeatism. She's opened up the Cute as a Button B & B in Bridgewater, Indiana, and along with her guinea pig, is embracing the lemonade lifestyle. It was always how she wanted to live. Everything is perfect, except for the nagging sensation that she would still like to fall in love.

Jake Yates has returned to Bridgewater, the town he grew up in, for his friend's wedding and he's not happy about it. He got out once and coming back, even for a visit, is not on his agenda. The people of Bridgewater can keep their small town life, it's in his past and that's where he intends it to stay. Even loneliness can't make him reconsider his decisions.

A chance meeting. A fleeting kiss. Suddenly two polar opposites get a unique chance at love. But can Clara give up living in the moment long enough to see Jake as an opportunity she needs to plan for? Can Jake alter his well-laid plans to fit Clara in his life? Or will they both let love get away?

Celebrating A New Erotic M/M Romance From Carolina Valdez

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating a new Amber Quill 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.

OLD STONES AND NEW WINE by Carolina Valdez

"A jug of wine, a loaf of bread, and thou." Omar Khayyám

Victimized by the con man he'd been married to, and grieving the death of a beloved dog, internationally known mystery writer Alan Brynton plunges into complete writers block. Needing the income, and desperate to meet his publisher's deadline, he leaves Los Angeles and rents a house in a village in the south of France. Beside the blue Rhone River, among lush vineyards in wineproducing Provence, he struggles to overcome his anger and grief to break the hold the block has on him.

When rescuing an injured dog, he meets and finds himself falling for the irresistibly charming Frenchman, Jacques Marchand. But Jacques has the same easy charm his ex had, and having been burned in his marriage, Alan no longer trusts his ability to know who a person really is. He can't risk being victimized again, but can he risk losing the intoxicating "new wine" Jacques is to him?

SHE BLINDED ME WITH SCIENCE by Michele L. Levigne

All's Fae In Love And Chocolate Book Three

Sophie's doctoral thesis stated magic was a psychosomatic phenomenon. Few took her seriously...she had a family reputation for strangeness and pointed ears to live down. In her research, she ran into Kevyn at a science fiction convention. When strange things happened, she slowly realized that she wasn't going insane...magic was real.

Kevyn was a Fae trying to avoid family traditions. He lived on the run in the Human realms, making his living as a day actor, staying under the radar. On an acting gig at a convention, he met up with Sophie and realized that she could not only see through his magic, she had magic. When Hunters showed up to drag Kevyn home and make him become an Advocate, he let Sophie capture him and take him home for research, thereby rescuing him from a fate worse than death...respectability and responsibility. Somewhere along the way, the lines between researcher and lab rat became blurred, then switched places, and the two of them discovered a magic of their own, and rescued each other.

JOY RIDE by Desiree Holt

Emma, the good girl poster child, is running from a life she suddenly sees as gray and suffocating - a life where she's successfully buried all her hopes and secret dreams. Until the night she wanders into Aftershock and is immediately drawn to the hot bass player. The electricity of his performance, the powerful music he coaxes from his guitar, the heavy vibration of each note reaches out to something deep inside her and wakes an Emma she didn't even know existed.

Marc doesn't much care for the groupies who hang around the band. He needs a woman he can create a future with that's a counterpoint to the craziness of the rock music business. When he sees Emma for the first time, something inside him cracks wide open. Just one sizzling glance between them, and he's sure he's found the woman to complete his life.

But as the relationship grows, there's a huge stumbling block: Emma won't tell him her name. The sex is fabulous but he wants more...

Although Emma is finally finding her true self, her fear of everything falling apart builds a barrier she can't seem to cross. Marc is taking her on the joy ride of her life, but will her own insecurities destroy everything?

Celebrating A New Siren Erotic Romance From Kortny Alexander

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Kortny Alexander's beautiful new erotic IR romance LOVE, INTERRUPTED.

Kortny Alexander is an addict for books. She loves to read. As a matter of fact, you don't even want to be around her when she's reading a series. She forget to eat, forget to feed the kids, forget doctor's appointments...It can get ugly.

Kortny lives in Georgia with her two extremely cool sons. They are not as addicted to reading but they are not too far behind. They both are writers as well. They rubbed off on her.

In all seriousness, it started off as a simple email to one of Kortny's favorite authors. She was instantly hooked on this vampire series and emailed the author, kindly demanding to know when the next book would be coming out. The author emailed back and told Kortny she'd have to hold on until the next year. So the next email Kornty sent, she teased that she'd better start drawing her own conclusions and writing her own version to keep her busy until the next book would be released. The author wrote back that she thought that would be an interesting idea.

The next morning it was as if a flood gate was opened. Story ideas bombarded Kortny so she started writing them down and it's been a non-stop fun journey every since.

Thanks to love she receives from her two very, very patient sons, her awesome brother and her wonderful mother, Kortny's been able to write to her heart's content...and she loves it!

Kortny hopes you will pick up one of her books and join her on an erotic fun-filled adventure.

LOVE, INTERRUPTED by Kortny Alexander

Hitomi Narcisse is fed up. All her friends keep trying to wedge a relationship into her carefully constructed life. She has plenty of risk in her business life. She doesn’t need the pain love brings.

A computer error during college paired her with Raiden Saga, a male roommate. They formed a surprising friendship that quietly grew over four years from an ember of interest to a passionate inferno. Hitomi, believing the intimate weekend to have been a mistake, flees first from their tryst and then cuts off all contact with Raiden.

Losing control is inevitable, though, when Raiden sweeps back into her life as a sweetly compelling complication. Hitomi falls in love with the widowed Raiden and his daughter…but will she believe herself worthy of love? Or will she run again, losing everything to her fears of letting go?

Celebrating A New Ellora's Cave Taboo Release For Nina Pierce

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Nina Pierce's latest release, INVITATION TO ECSTASY, the second book in her XTC Resorts Series .

Award-winning erotic romance author, Nina Pierce, grew up in a house full of readers. So becoming enamored with books was only natural. She discovered romance stories in her early teens, falling hopelessly in love with knights in shining armor and the damsels who saved them.

Eventually, reading about alpha males and the journey to find their happy-ever-after endings wasn’t enough. She needed to pen her own stories of fated loves and soul mates. Nina’s discovered the passionate side of romance with her sexy stories. For her, it’s all about the sweet scent of seduction mixed with the heart warming aroma of romance.

Nina resides in the northeast with her high school sweetheart and soul mate of twenty-seven years, their three grown children and several very spoiled cats who consider her "staff".

INVITATION TO ECSTASY by Nina Pierce

XTC Resorts Book 2

A woman unwilling to trust...

Sara Lancaster isn't sure accepting her invitation to a BDSM weekend at XTC Resort is a good idea - though she does have something to prove. Months of abuse at the hand of her former Master have taken their toll. Now, two years later, Sara believes she's ready to embrace her submissive side once again and enjoy the carnal pleasures of a younger Dom.

A man testing his limits...

Derek Thomas has lost belief in his abilities as a Master. Accepting an invitation for Dom training could be exactly what he needs to regain his self-confidence. Challenged with an experienced older woman, he soon realizes wielding a flogger isn't always enough to break down the emotional walls and heal a damaged submissive.

Two people with something to prove...

Sara and Derek sizzle with sexual heat the moment they step into the dungeon. The mind blowing sex and physical pain may satisfy their bodies, but wounded hearts and broken spirits just may require something even more intimate - their hearts.

CENTURION'S CAPTURE by Nadia Aidan

Book three in the Imperial Desires series.

From the time she knew desire, Olivia has wanted Claudius Ovidius, but the retired centurion has long vowed he would never have her - because she is too young and innocent to the ways of lovemaking. But Olivia is not a girl anymore, and while she may not be skilled in the ways of pleasing men, she knows of Claudius' dark desires, and is certain she is up to the task of pleasing him.

Claudius vowed he would never touch Olivia, but the girl is making it damn hard. When he visits the decadent club known only as The Cave and spots Olivia there, he demands she leave, but she's defiant, testing the last vestiges of his self-restraint.

On that night, there are no more excuses or denials standing between them. And soon Claudius and Olivia find themselves playing a dangerous game of seduction, one that spirals into a passionate affair, igniting desperate longings and dredging up a dark secret Claudius thought forever buried.

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of Rebecca Royce's new fantasy romance RETURN TO THE SEA.


As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.

Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.

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

COUNTRY MINDED COUGAR by Sandy Sullivan

Margaret Nelson, thirty-five year old country music talent agent. Her dream job and she's good. She's got four needy but extremely talented clients. One problem, her boss wants her to take on the newest, hottest rising star to hit Nashville, Lee James. Making him a huge success should be easy. He's gorgeous, sexy and oh-my-God, hot!

Lee James, do your momma proud country boy turned sizzling country star. He's on the fast track to be the biggest thing to hit country music since George Strait. The talent agency hired by his record company to promote him comes with a huge issue - his attraction to his agent. She's beautiful, funny, and smart, but she seems to have this hang up with being older than he is.

No way could Lee be attracted to a woman with cellulite, love handles and sagging breasts or at least that's the way Maggie sees herself. He could have any woman he wants, why her?

Can desire this blistering continue to ignite long after their one night of passion?

Celebrating Cherie Noel's New M/M Contemporary Romance

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Cherie Noel's new M/M romance, THE SOLDIER & THE STATE TROOPER

Cherie Noel didn't speak until she could do it in full sentences, went away to college at age sixteen, spent time as a music showcase producer, a songwriter, a Dragon Soldier (ask her what that means and she'll tell you), a nurse, a reporter...oh, this list goes on and on. She's still writing, only now she writes love stories. M/M, M/F, F/F, or any combination of the above. The characters just have to holler loud enough for her to hear 'em.

Cherie will admit to a certain partiality to nekkid boys though. So if she's a little more likely to write about boys falling for each other, she's sure you'll understand...more nekkid boys that way!*

THE SOLDIER & THE STATE TROOPER by Cherie Noel

Career soldier Christie Collins figured out early that love could be lost in the blink of an eye, leaving an empty place that was just another pothole on life's rocky road. The detours of sudden single fatherhood and a nosy best friend who won't let even death stop her from interfering in every date leave Christie convinced that finding a partner is next to impossible.

State Trooper Robert Lindstrom catches Christie speeding along the stretch of highway he patrols and a routine traffic stop turns into love lights flashing and instant attraction for these two men in uniform. It looks like smooth sailing to their happily ever after until an unexpected deployment sends Christie into danger. Can their love survive both bombs and the betrayal of Christie by his closest comrade?
