Stay Inside and Read – 2


If you missed Stay Inside and Read #1 – go here.

The weather in Oklahoma was 79 Monday, now it’s blustery, cold and yeah…I can’t wait to get under a blanket and read!

So first up – the great new books from Harlequin Blaze!  I love the Blaze line, and I’m so sad to see it close later this year BUT in the meantime, there’s some great new reads.

Jo Leigh visited Oklahoma once and Gena Showalter and I talked her ear off – and she let us! She’s awesome! Tanya Michaels and I met when we were still unpublished and chasing the dream of seeing our books on the shelves.  Her writing is funny, poignant and hot.  Not only does Lisa Childs write for so many interests – she knocks each one out of the park!  She will also stand beside you at a party so you won’t feel like a complete wallflower – thanks, Lisa! Katherine Garbera rocks the house and you won’t want to miss Pushing the Limits!

I’ve got blurbs galore:

Luca Paladino moves into the town house he’s renovating in Little Italy—a town house he thinks is empty. But he soon discovers a squatter upstairs, who turns out to be the woman of his dreams!

TEMPTING THE BEST MAN (Wild Wedding Nights) by Tanya Michaels – When Professor Daniel Keegan runs into Mia Hayes at his best friend’s bachelor party, their chemistry is off the charts. They’re complete opposites, but she can’t help tempting him to get a little wild…

HOT PURSUIT by Lisa Childs – Hotshot superintendent Braden Zimmer is surprised when beautiful, young Sam McRooney shows up to take over his arson investigation. Will their sizzling chemistry bring them together, or is it a deadly distraction?

PUSHING THE LIMITS by Katherine Garbera – Astronaut Hemi “Thor” Barrett is training at the Bar T Ranch to make the elite long-term mission crew. He can’t afford to be hot for teacher, and survival instructor Jessie Odell is definitely raising his temperature…

1001 Dark Nights returns, and this time features Kristen Ashley with her novella Rock Chick Reawakening.  Here’s your blurb:

From New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, comes the long-awaited story of Daisy and Marcus, Rock Chick Reawakening. A prequel to Kristen’s Rock Chick series, Rock Chick Reawakening shares the tale of the devastating event that nearly broke Daisy, an event that set Marcus Sloan—one of Denver’s most respected businessmen and one of the Denver underground’s most feared crime bosses—into finally making his move to win the heart of the woman who stole his.

You can buy it on kindle here. You can see ALL of the 1001 Dark Night Stories by going here.



I’m really intrigued by the idea of falling for someone over text, so I’m looking forward to reading  Real Good Man by Meghan March.  Here’s your blurb:

Fall for a woman over text messages? No way in hell.
Reality can never be as good as the fantasy, right?
Wrong. It’s better.
Banner Regent is smart, funny, and she’s so far out of my league, she might as well be royalty.
I’m a mechanic from Kentucky. She’s a New York City party girl.
We were never supposed to meet, but one text started something neither of us saw coming.
How do you seduce the woman who already has everything?
Show her what it’s like to be with a real good man.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know I’d planned to take down the tree on the 29th.  I only sat down to read a chapter of L.J. Shen’s Vicious and ended up basically reading for 2 days straight – even though my husband was trying to tempt me with football!  Days later, the tree was still not down but I did finish the book and it was wonderful.  Your official blurb:


They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it’s true.
The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares.
He is a brilliant lawyer.
A skilled criminal.
A beautiful liar.
A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover.
Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn’t leaving until he takes me with him.


She is a starving artist.
Pretty and evasive like cherry blossom.
Ten years ago, she barged into my life unannounced and turned everything upside down.
She paid the price.
Emilia LeBlanc is completely off-limits, my best friend’s ex-girlfriend. The woman who knows my darkest secret, and the daughter of the cheap Help we hired to take care of our estate.
That should deter me from chasing her, but it doesn’t.
So she hates me. Big fucking deal.
She better get used to me.

You can order Vicious on Amazon/Kindle here.

Also – at the end of this week my latest – T&A: Revelations Of A Romance Novel Heroine releases.  You can read more about it here.
