When Hearts Dare #3
Kathleen Bittner Roth
Releasing Sept 29th, 2015
Kensington: Zebra


“Monsieur Andrews, welcome to my home.”
At the smoky, velvet sound, Cameron swung around. Every function in his body–heart, breath, blood ceased to function.
She was lovely. More than lovely.
Tendrils of raven hair framed a face so exquisite, it disarmed him. Her mouth, a soft, dewy pink, parted. And those eyes, as dark as Creole coffee, intelligent and assessing, roamed over him and then back to take hold of his. He needed to step closer, to stroke her skin. To possess her. But would his wealth and worldly experience be a match for the free-spirited Cajun-born widow?
Across the oceans, between worlds old and new–two lost souls find themselves at a crossroads.
“An exciting new voice in historical romance.” –Anna Campbell, awardwinning author of What a Duke Dares

San Francisco, 1857


Once he reached China, Cameron Andrews didn’t give a bloody damn where he ended up.

He stood on the dock in front of the Andrews Shipping Company offices, one booted foot perched atop a stubby mooring, eyes fixed on the Serenity. The sleek clipper tacked back and forth, gracefully working her way into the harbor on the first leg of her journey since departing New Orleans. She’d tie down long enough to drop off mail and cargo, then refill her stores and head to the Orient for another load of goods. He’d be aboard her when she set sail.

Born in New Orleans’s Vieux Carré to a French mother, and educated at Cambridge like his English father, he was used to the very best. He and his cousin had inherited the family business, had worked their arses off to turn the shipping line into an empire that maintained the largest fleet in the world. He was a wealthy man who could afford just about anything.

A soft snort escaped him. Anything, that is, except a modicum of peace. No amount of money could buy his way out of the misery that threatened to suffocate him.

Somewhere behind him a church bell pealed the noon hour, and like clockwork, his stomach growled. A glance down the street at the Morgan Hotel, and any desire for food left him. He’d taken his noon meal there every day without fail since his arrival four years ago—that is, until recently. Even though it had been two years since his wife’s passing, facing her parents, the owners of the hotel, was growing more tedious by the day. Lately, he’d been skipping luncheon altogether.

The sun escaped the cover of a billowy cloud and turned the gray waters of San Francisco Bay into a hard sparkle of blue. The air lost a bit of its briskness. He shielded his eyes from the glare and watched the Serenity glide silently through the water. Good Lord, she was magnificent. The fastest ship on the seas. Merde, but it would feel good to gain his sea legs again.

The Felicité and the Celine, two more of the company’s elegant clippers, rode low in the water harbor-side, both laden with goods from China and India. In a few days, one would head to New Orleans, the other to Boston.

As the Serenity tacked eastward one last time before coming into port, Yerba Buena Island appeared behind her like a backdrop, an emerald oasis in the middle of the bay. A familiar hollowness ate at him. His wife and stillborn son lay buried on the western slope of that island. His chest grew taut. Would Dianah forgive him if he left? Lord knew how many times he’d stood beside her grave begging permission to leave without guilt.

College Problems


Jamie K. Schmidt

Phoebe Jones, my heroine in Truth Kills—the first book in the Truth or Lies series, is a freshman in college.  She is an orphan who was aged out of the system, but granted one year of her dream college by a mysterious donor known as the Benefactrix.  She wants to become a journalist, so the first thing she does is join the college newspaper, The Sentinel.  This was her first article:

The Freshman Fifteen is what the average weight gain a freshman can expect to gain in their first year of college.  Here are five tips to keep that from happening to you:

  1. Water, water, everywhere!  Keep a filled bottle of water with you at all times.  Most of the time when you feel hungry, you’re actually thirsty.  Drink a bottle of water before every meal.
  2. Snack healthy, and cheaply! Popcorn kernels are about $5 for a silo. That will last you all year.  If you can’t snag the air popper from your parents, you can make your own with a brown sandwich bag.  Put in a ¼ cup of kernels and a tsp of olive oil.  Fold down the bag and shake.  Put it in the microwave until all the kernels top popping.
  3. Limit pizza to once a week. I know.  I know.  This is a tough one.
  4. Eat six small meals instead of three big ones to cut down on snacking. Make sure you have a serving of fruit and vegetable with every meal
  5. Take a half hour walk around campus every day. In addition to hauling your books all over the place getting to and from classes, the extra exercise should keep those fifteen lbs. far away.

Her editor thought it was a little tame. He marked it up and told her to spice it up a bit.  She was writing for a college audience not Woman’s Day.  Here’s what actually got published in the paper:

How to Still Fit Into Your Jeans After Freshman Year

  1. Drink light beer, it’s mostly water. Get the low carb option, if available to stop bloat. If you don’t have a fake ID or don’t want to drink, grab lemon slices and sweet and low packets from the cafeteria and make your own lemonade and drink that instead of soda.
  2. If you spend all your money at the mall on fun things, there won’t be any left for snacks.
  3. Order a veggie pizza.
  4. Eat at the dining hall for all your meals. You’ll wind up existing on shredded carrot salads because that’s the only thing you recognize.
  5. Sex burns lots of calories. Have at it.  Just be safe.  Use a condom.

Phoebe goes on to write a Freshman’s Guide to Sex column and asks her faculty advisor to help her out with the fun parts.


Tell me what advice you would give to a incoming college Freshman.

I’m giving away a free e-copy of Truth Kills to one commenter.

Truth & Lies #1
Jamie K. Schmidt
Released Sept 30th, 2015
Truth & Lies Series
Aged out of the system and
battle worn from unsuccessful foster care, four women on the cusp of adulthood
find passion and their paths in life through the help of an anonymous fairy
godmother type who calls herself the Benefactrix. 
Truth Kills: Book One
A healing and emotionally fragile girl unknowing falls for the nephew of the man who killed her family.
College freshmen, Phoebe’s new lover is sexy, creative and willing to let her act out all her dirty fantasies. Unfortunately, Keith’s not telling her the truth about who he really is and the secret past that binds them together. When his Uncle breaks out of prison to search for the “girl who got away,” Keith risks losing the best thing in his life by admitting to Phoebe that his Uncle killed her parents.
Phoebe Jones lost her family during a home invasion when she was only thirteen. She’s the only one of the four girls who remembers a loving family. The Benefactrix has given her a full boat scholarship to the local college, where Phoebe meets a graduate student who wants to do a story about her family. But Keith Parker isn’t without his own demons. His Uncle, now on death row, was one of the men who broke into Phoebe’s house eight years ago. What started out as a project for understanding and healing is complicated when Phoebe & Keith act on the
explosive desire between them.
Phoebe craves to be in control sexually and Keith is more than willing to let her have her way with him. What started out as a hot fling rapidly becomes something deeper. Keith knows he’ll lose her if he reveals who he really is, but the lie has taken on a life of its own and threatens to destroy not only their relationship but Phoebe’s fragile self confidence and freshly won self esteem.

Turning back around, she stood up on her tiptoes until she thought she saw the back of Larissa’s head.  Larissa had been a door stop baby, dropped off at a hospital.  She never knew her family.  She didn’t even come with a note pinned to her blanket.  Larissa had been Phoebe’s first friend at the home.  She loved hearing about Phoebe’s parents and the little details of a “normal” life.  For some reason Meatless Monday and Taco Tuesday were the best things Larissa ever heard of and would never get tired of hearing Phoebe talk about how it used to be.

Kelly, Maryanne, and Larissa. That was the sum total of the people who would cheer for her when she walked up on the rickety stage to accept her diploma from Principal Barnes.  And at the ripe old age of eighteen, Phoebe was about to be aged out of the system and those people would be lost to her as well.


She was not going to cry.  If she started, she wouldn’t stop and that would ruin the ceremony for her friends.

“Just another day,” Kelly murmured.

Phoebe nodded and pulled herself together.  Nothing new here.  She forced her chin up and willed this endless ceremony to end. It wasn’t as if they would never see each other again. None of them had any money to go very far, except maybe Kelly.  Her boyfriend Chad was loaded and liked giving her expensive treats.  He was taking her away on vacation tomorrow to Belize to celebrate.  But that was only for a week because Kelly had a job to get back to at the camera shop.  She’d been working there since she was sixteen.  It didn’t pay anything, but she was able to work on her own projects in between transferring people’s pictures from film to digital.

After Kelly got back from Belize, Phoebe and the other girls would start their transition into adult housing, leaving the group home that had housed them since they were ten-years-old.

Graduation was supposed to be a day of hope and of new beginnings.  She should have been looking forward to a fun summer and then off to college in the fall, somewhere far away from Connecticut and the memories.  Except her grades hadn’t been that good.  So she’d take night classes at her safety school, and maybe next year get accepted into one of the larger universities.  Paying for that would be another thing to worry about.  Just not today.

BOOK BLITZ ~ A Dose of Passion by Sharon C Cooper ~ GIVEAWAY

A Dose of Passion 

by Sharon C. Cooper

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo Books | All Romance Books
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published by: Harlequin Kimani Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2015
Length: 224 Pages

A prescription for sweet satisfaction…

Pediatrician Macy Carter has been so busy expanding her practice she’s had no time to build the family she craves. Her late, much-loved surrogate father apparently had some matchmaking in mind when he arranged for a sexy architect to take over his home and company. Too bad Derek is a single dad who’s been there, done that, and intends to remain unattached. Their priorities are totally out of sync. Their chemistry? Unbelievably potent.

Thanks to his former mentor, Derek Logan just inherited an architectural business, a house and the gorgeous client next door. He’s keeping away from forever relationships, but this doctor’s sensual touch is addictive. Helping Macy build her dream medical complex awakens Derek to how much more he now wants out of life. But has he hesitated too long to prove he’s ready for and deserving of her love?



“What?” Macy finally found her voice. Derek was sending so many mixed signals she didn’t know what to think.

“I’m leaving for Miami Sunday morning for a meeting. We have a huge project starting there soon and I need to go over some logistics before we start.” He leaned against her kitchen counter and faced her. “I’m taking the company’s jet and there is more than enough room for you. Come with me. We’ll do a little sightseeing Sunday after we land, and then we can have a nice romantic dinner Sunday night. And before you say you have to work, I already know you’re off Monday and Tuesday.”

Macy didn’t know what to say about the unexpected offer. She wanted to say yes, but she wasn’t looking for an affair. She was ready to settle down. Settling for a sexual partner, even with someone like Derek, wasn’t enough.

“I can’t.”

He approached her and wrapped his strong arms around her waist, the scent of his cologne making her weak in the knees.

“Why not?” His voice had dropped an octave and desire glistened in his intense brown eyes. The man was wreaking havoc on her body and probably had no idea just how he affected her.

“I want more than an affair, Derek.” Her hands rested on his solid chest as she fingered the collar of the T-shirt he had hastily slipped into. “I deserve more than just an affair.”

He dropped his forehead to hers and blew out a frustrated breath. “I know you do, baby, but right now—” he lifted his head “—this is all I can give you.”

She pulled out of his arms. “Then whatever this is between us can’t happen.”

BOOK BLITZ ~ Snowbound at Christmas by Debbie Mason ~ GIVEAWAY

Enter for a chance to Win a
$25.00 Amazon eGift Card


Christmas, Colorado #5
Debbie Mason
Releasing Sept 29th, 2015
Forever Romance


Surviving the holidays will take a Christmas miracle . . .

Ex-cop Cat O’Connor is bored working for her sister, Chloe, as a personal assistant on the set of her soap opera. Until Chloe gets an opportunity to audition for the role of a lifetime and asks her identical twin to substitute for her on the soap with no one the wiser. It’s a perfect switch-until Cat attracts the attention of the mysterious Mr. Tall, Dark, and Way-too-handsome leading man.

Grayson Alexander never thought being snowbound in the charming town of Christmas, Colorado, for the holiday would get so hot. But between working with sexy, tough Cat on set and keeping his real reason for being there under wraps, he’s definitely feeling the heat. And if there’s one thing they’ll learn as they bring out the mistletoe, it’s that in this town, true love is always in season.


Chloe attempted to remove Fluffy’s nails from her velour hoodie while staring at Cat with an appalled expression on her face.”Why are you sitting on that man?”

“I . . . ” Cat looked from her sister to the man in question. She was still sitting on him. On his rock-hard abs. Why hadn’t she moved? Because everything happened too fast. It was the only acceptable explanation. It had nothing to do with being stunned stupid by his movie-star good looks.

He raised an eyebrow. What was with the sardonic look? Oh no, he was not putting her on the defensive. He’d broken into her sister’s dressing room. Cat attempted to get off him without any further rubbing of her body on his, which wasn’t easy. She gave up and awkwardly scrambled to her feet.

“About bloody time,” she thought he muttered, but couldn’t be sure because she was back to being stunned stupid when he flashed her a smile. A smile so gorgeous it belonged in a toothpaste commercial.

            Pathetic. Cat was so off her game it wasn’t even funny. Here she was thinking about his full, seductive lips and his perfect white teeth when her sister’s life was on the line. Cat fisted her hands on her hips, put on her cop face, and went to glare down at the man. Only he rose to his feet with leonine grace, tugging the sleeves of his white shirt below his suit sleeves. She had to look up and took one step back, then another.

Behind her, Chloe sucked in a breath. Cat knew what that sucking sound meant, and it wasn’t good. Her sister had gotten her first good look at the man. “Chloe, wait for me in the hall. I need to question . . .”

Her sister practically threw the animal at the older woman, shoving Cat out of the way with her hand extended. And there it was again, his smile. Only this one seemed friendlier, more genuine, and just as flipping gorgeous. She waited for her sister to react. She didn’t disappoint.

BOOK BLITZ ~ The Sweet Spot by Stephanie Evanovich ~ GIVEAWAY

Enter to Win a


Stephanie Evanovich
Releasing Sept 29th, 2015
Mass Market Paperback
Avon Books/Harper Collins
The amazing Stephanie Evanovich returns with The Sweet Spot, the sizzling story of everyone’s favorite couple from her New York Times bestseller Big Girl Panties: hunky professional baseball player Chase Walker and his sassy wife AmandaWhen pro baseball player Chase Walker first meets Amanda at her restaurant, it’s love at first sight. While Amanda can’t help noticing the superstar with the Greek-god-build, he doesn’t have a chance of getting to first—or any other—base with her. A successful entrepreneur who’s built her business from scratch, Amanda doesn’t need a Prince Charming to sweep her off her feet. And a curvy girl who likes to cook and eat isn’t interested in being around the catty, stick-thin herd of females chasing Chase and his teammates.

But Chase isn’t about to strike out. A man who isn’t interested in playing the field, he’s a monogamist who wants an independent woman like Amanda. His hopes rally when she discovers that squeaky-clean Chase has a few sexy and very secret pre-game rituals that turn the smart, headstrong businesswoman on—and into his number one fan.

Then a tabloid discovers the truth and turns their spanking good fun into a late- night punch-line. Is Amanda ready to let loose and swing for the fences? Or will the pressure of Chase’s stardom force them to call it quits?


“Cold Creek Grill.  How may I help you?”  She answered the phone as if her day was right as rain.  She was a business woman, first and foremost.

“I need a reservation for tonight,” a gravelly voice barked into the phone.  The caller was either on a cell phone with a bad connection or had a mouth full of marbles.

“Of course sir, what time are you looking for?”

“Seven,” he said impatiently and Amanda pictured him running to catch a subway.

“Let me make sure I have that available,” she told him, trying to buy time while she booted up the computer at the podium a few feet away.  She moved the phone to the other side of her head, forgetting it was a war zone and her hair crackled near her ear.

“Trust me, sweetheart, you have a table available.”

“Sir?” She didn’t know what to be more offended by, his use of the word sweetheart or the underlying threat that she better be able to seat him.  And she determined he was just some arrogant blowhard who was sitting with his feet up on his desk overlooking the water and a fat stogy in his mouth.

“A superstar is having dinner at your restaurant; you don’t want to make him wait.”

“All of our guests at the Cold Creek are VIPs Mr…?”

“Maybe I should speak to the owner?” he cut her off and she thought she heard more spit squish out of the end of his cigar.

“I am the owner.  My name is Amanda Cole.  To whom do I have the pleasure of speaking?”

“Don’t seat us someplace high traffic like near the front.  He’s not there to be an advertisement.  You’ll get your photo op.”

It sounded so scathing, like she was some sort of a bistro whore looking to make a buck, as if she would be interested in taking a picture with him in the first place.  Supreme Court justices and past presidents dined at the Cold Creek without incident.  “Mr. What-ever-your-name-is, I’m not only concerned for the comfort of our guests, but the safety of my staff.  And we have had some high profile guests in the past.  Several are regulars.”

“Yeah, yeah, I heard that.  That’s why I’m calling.  But lady, you never had anyone this big,” he said with an air of superiority that was nothing short of skin crawling.  At least he had upgraded her to lady.

If he wasn’t being such a total jack-ass, she might have taken him more seriously.  “Would you like to tell me who he is, so that I might inform security?” she said with overt sarcasm.  He could either take being spoken to in kind, or he would start to ream her out and she would hang up on him and he could dine elsewhere, bad business or not.

There was a pause and she thought he may have hung up on her first.  But then he said, “No.  Better you don’t know till he gets there.  Someone tips off TMZ and the night’s a bust.  And he brings his own security”

“Will they be joining you for dinner?”

His laugh was particularly smarmy.  “They’re not paid to eat.”

So he wasn’t only rude, he was also a tyrant.  “That’s fine, sir, they can stand guard with mine.”  Only hers were imaginary. She no longer cared if the computer was ready.  It was a Weds, they were rarely fully booked, and this man and his famous guest seemed intent on dining there.  He was probably going to be more aggravation than anything else, even if he was only half as self-important as his representative. “You’re all set, dinner for two at seven.  Would you like to leave me a name or is there a code word or what?”

There was another pause, and once again Amanda was given the false hope that he may have hung up and saved her from a night of inconvenient distractions at the very least.  But then she heard him on the other end, it sounded like a snort.

“You’re spunky, kid,” he told her.  “Name under Alan Shaw.  I’ll be there at 6:50.  I don’t like to wait either.  And make sure there are good steaks on hand, he’s a meat-eater.”

Easy…until a steamy night where they cross the line. But that’s okay, they’ll add an addendum—one that includes a little action between the sheets…on top of the sheets…and without the sheets. But there are rules. Dating and sex are exclusive until one of them decides to terminate the agreement. No slumber parties. And if either party becomes emotionally involved they will break things off with no hard feelings.

In the ninth romantic suspense novel in the New York Times bestselling Tracers series, author Laura Griffin brings back her elite cadre of forensic experts as they hunt down the most brutal serial killer yet.
Special Agent Tara Rushing arrives at a grisly murder scene and quickly discovers she’s got a serial killer on her hands. The killer is meticulous, making sure to wipe up even the smallest traces of evidence…but the Delphi Center experts are on the case.
The local sheriff has a suspect all picked out—ex-Marine and current security expert Liam Wolfe. Despite all her digging, Tara knows very little about Liam when she shows up at his sprawling Texas compound, which serves as headquarters for Wolfe Security, and she’s
surprised by her intense physical reaction to him.
As she and Liam grow closer, Tara finds herself depending on his skills and expertise to help her track a killer. But when another body turns up, Tara must decide if she can trust the man who’s quickly stealing her heart.
The ninth novel in the Tracers series that combines gripping plot twists with spine-tingling romance, Shadow Fall once again proves that “Laura Griffin gets better with each book” (The Romance Reviews).

Tara looked out the window again and realized her pulse was still thrumming. He unnerved her. It wasn’t just his size, it was his attitude. Maybe she was self-conscious because he’d caught her off guard. She was definitely embarrassed that she’d pulled her weapon on him.

She adjusted the vent and got a waft of hot air. His attitude bothered her, but she liked his truck. It smelled like leather and earth and felt deliciously warm. She forced herself to ignore the flutter of nerves generated by being alone in the dark with him. The nerves weren’t from fear but something else. And she wondered which was worse, being afraid of a man she was investigating or being attracted to him?

“You shouldn’t come out here alone.”

She looked at him. “Why not?”

“We’ve got more than a few meth heads around here. You don’t want to walk up on something, not without backup.”

She watched his face in the dimness, uneasy with the protective tone of his voice.

“We confirmed the ID today,” she said.

“I know.”

That ticked her off.

“Won’t be long till the media has it,” he added.

“Where are you getting your information?”

He didn’t answer.

“And the other day,” she said, “how’d you know we were here, me and M.J.? Are you having us tailed?”

Even if he was, he’d probably never admit it. But she at least needed to ask and get his reaction. Shadowing investigators could definitely be considered suspicious behavior.

Although she had to be honest with herself. She didn’t consider him a real suspect. Despite his links to the victim, she simply didn’t feel it.

“I’m guessing you filmed us approaching your property and ran my plate,” she said.

The corner of his mouth lifted. “Nothing that cloak-and- dagger.” He glanced at her. “I’m friends with Crystal.”

“Who’s Crystal?”

“She waited on you at the Waffle Stop. Bright red hair, eyebrow ring.”

She turned to face the window. “Small-town grapevine. And here I’ve been all impressed with your spying abilities.”

“You should be.” He pulled up to her Explorer and parked. “We’re the best there is.”

She looked at him in the darkness, so confident it bordered on arrogance. And the crazy thing was she believed him. She bought into it completely—he was that good.

His eyes locked on hers, and the air between them felt charged with electricity. His gaze dropped to her mouth, and her heart skittered. Was he going to kiss her? He eased closer, watching her, making her heart pound.
