Baer Necessities
by Linda McMaken


Connor Baer left the ranch to see the world. Jessie McIvey wasn't far behind.

He wanted no part of small town life, and she didn't want a cowboy in her future.

But sometimes the thing your heart wants the most, you've had all along. Two people left one small town to find what their hearts were searching for only to find everything they'd ever wanted right in their own backyard.



No Greater Glory
by Cindy Nord


Amid the carnage of war, he commandeers far more than just her home.

Buy the book 
Widowed plantation owner Emaline McDaniels has struggled to hold on to her late husband’s dreams. Despite the responsibilities resting on her slender shoulders, she’ll not let anyone wrest away what’s left of her way of life—particularly a Yankee officer who wants to set up winter camp on her land.

With a defiance born of desperation, she defends her home as though it were the child she never had…and no mother gives up her child without a fight.

Despite the brazen wisp of a woman pointing a gun at his head, Colonel Reece Cutteridge has his orders. Requisition Shapinsay—and its valuable livestock—for his regiment’s use, and pay her with Union vouchers. He never expected her fierce determination, then her concern for his wounded, to upend his heart—and possibly his career.

As the armies go dormant for the winter, battle lines are drawn inside the mansion. Yet just as their clash of wills shifts to forbidden passion, the tides of war sweep Reece away. And now their most desperate battle is to survive the war with their lives—and their love—intact.

A Night of Southern Comfort
by Robin Covington


One night of passion...

Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He’s spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he'd buried years ago.

He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor's daughter...and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can't keep the same promise.

But when the stalker's attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela's life. And he’ll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.



Just a Kiss

She's unforgettable... and that's exactly what got him into trouble the first time.
The Bradfords, Book 5

As a paramedic in the busiest ER in the city, Kevin Campbell knows there's no such thing as a typical night-but this one definitely has them all beat.

His dad's been stabbed with a fork, his mom's been in a fight, and it's all because of a younger half-brother he never knew existed. And if that's not enough, everyone seems to agree that Kevin should take the boy in for the six months during his mom's rehab. Oh, and the annulment he thought he got fourteen years ago? Never went through.

It's really too bad he gave up drinking and swearing.

Eve Donnelly is shocked to see Kevin again, but not surprised they're still married. After all, she was the one who refused to sign the annulment papers. Now that she's got Kevin back in her life, nothing else matters. Not even her past fourteen less-than-virtuous years. In fact, the truth about her life without Kevin isn't even worth bringing up. She hopes.

When Eve offers to help Kevin with his younger brother, a sweet, devout preacher's daughter seems like an answered prayer. Besides, things can't get more complicated. Can they?

Warning: Contains a bad boy gone good, a good girl who knows all about being bad, and lots of hot, sweet, so-this-is-how-married-couples-do-it sex.

Obsession
by Monica Burns


A woman on the edge of sin…

Helen Rivenall is willing to do anything to escape the brutality of her uncle’s home. But a promise of honest employment is a ruse. Drugged and auctioned off in a notorious London brothel, she finds herself won by a man who wants nothing from her except her participation in a harmless charade. Left with no choice, she reluctantly agrees, but as their web of lies grows, so does temptation and the realization that pleasure and sin are often one and the same.

A man about to lose all control…

Sebastian Rockwood, Earl of Melton is haunted by a dark secret in his past. One that taught him control is a personal trait to be valued above all others. He also learned never to give his heart to anyone. The risk is too great. Yet where Helen is concerned, his prized control is slowly giving way to temptation, and all too quickly he discovers nothing can protect him from….

The ultimate obsession—love.

Dark Days of Promise

Buy the Book
While Vicki’s children grapple with the death of their father -- a man whom she’s successfully fabricated as loving, a lie her rebellious teenager recognizes -- she must find a way to support her family and find a role model for her boys. She never intends to fall for Staff Sergeant Chase, her best friend’s son, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). She’d much rather choose a safer man to love, but her children have a voice in the decision she makes. With two deaths to deal with, a suitor after her money, a rebellious son, and Sergeant Chase’s repeated attacks, she can only hope to survive the danger she faces. If she doesn’t, her children will be left without either parent.

Hi Nicola!!! You make me blush! How is the weather down under? We are cold and rainy and I'm already over it.

And, gang check Nicola's "Not the Marrying Kind" and her super fun and sexy "Crazy Love". I adored the premise!

Robin Covington said...

Okay - so I'm looking for great romantic suspense recommendations. I just finished Lori Foster's "Run the Risk" and loved it.

L McMaken said...

I like romantic suspense too, and enjoy Lori Foster. I just finished the Ash Trilogy by Shiloh Walker - awesome serious.

Joan Varner said...

I love romantic suspense and my go to author is always Jayne Ann Krentz. Now that she's writing romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, my heart is very happy.

brandi said...

I like Damage control by amy fetzer. really interesting book.

Joan Varner said...

Thanks Joan! That makes me happy Snoopy dance! It's book two of the Three Bears. Three sexy Wyoming ranch brothers.

Robin Covington said...

The "Three Bears" also have awesome book trailers! ; )

Linda Henderson said...

These all sound like incredible books. I'm certainly discovering a lot of new books to add to my list.

L McMaken said...

Thanks Robin - but on your website, you have the awesome cowboy boots!

L McMaken said...

For other readers, I have read Dark Days of Promise. It's deep, it's emotional and its a very good read. Nope, didn't get paid for that. LOL

Lucy Monroe said...

It's a full night of fun and what an awesome lineup of authors in here tonight. I haven't had a chance to stop by the Hospitality Suite yet, but am loving that tonight is the night for me. :) So, where's the chocolate? I'm just sayin'...

Robin Covington said...

Lucy - I have the chocolate! Ghiradelli!

L - I love my boots! My Dad got them for me in Austin.

Joan Varner said...

Hi, Lucy! I am so glad that you put this together. I have enjoyed "meeting" new authors (for me) and reading all the blurbs about their books. I have added so many to the wish list or the TBR pile.

Joan Varner said...

Linda, I am checking out your other 2 "bear" books as I speak or type. They look good, too. More to add to the wish list.

Lucy Monroe said...

Robin...yum! Cyber chocolate is the best kind because it doesn't go to my hips. :)

littlequeenie29 said...

I love these things. Nice to put a person, kinda, to the book. Fun¡

Lucy Monroe said...

Joan - this has been absolutely wonderful for me and I'm so blessed by the authors who wanted to join me in saying a huge THANK YOU to readers. :)

L McMaken said...

Even though I'm an author, I am an avid reader too - kinda goes hand in hand! LOL More books on my TBR - yeah, I love new books. I'm also a librarian by day - yeah, new recommended books to buy!!!

L McMaken said...

Ohh, Austin...on my I gotta visit there list! Got mine in Cheyenne. Love my boots.

L McMaken said...

Aw Joan, blushing....But book three won't be out until next April - sorry. Baer Necessities just came out in Sept.

Lucy Monroe said...

You and me both, Linda! I read at least three books a week usually. The last couple of months not so much, but life has been in flux. :)

Blogless Pat said...

Hi everyone

L McMaken said...

Hey Pat! Welcome.

Robin Covington said...

Hi Pat!

Oh - I read all the time. I love the "text to speech" feature on my Kindle b/c it makes all of my books audiobooks and I can have it read to me while I'm cooking, driving . . .

mary f said...

hi all

read anything good lately?

Blogless Pat said...

I always have a book in my purse. I'm constantly in the car waiting, standing on line waiting etc. So I pull out my trusty book and read.

Robin Covington said...

Okay - here's a question for the authors: Do you read the type of book that you write or do read other genres?

I can't read contemporary romance (which is what I write) when I am writing a book (which seems like all the time since I'm under contract for six books in 2013) but I love to indulge in a little paranormal, male/male romance and historical when I'm writing. In between deadlines is when I catch up on contemporary books.

Blogless Pat said...

Also I have a book in the bedroom, a book in the living room and a book in my bathroom! The librarians all know me by name.

L McMaken said...

Yes, Lucy when I'm not on deadline I read two -three books a week. I LOVE audio books I can garden, do dishes,etc. and still read a book. Makes me feel like I've accomplished so much! LOL

L McMaken said...

Great question Robin - I don't. I write contemporary romantic comedy, but I read thrillers, and romantic suspense - go figure??? LOL

Robin Covington said...

Mary f

I read a male/male romance called "Afflicted" which was fascinating b/c the heroes. One was blind and one was a male escort. Interesting read!

And, I also loved "Summer in Sonoma" by Robyn Carr. A great book about friendship!

Lucy Monroe said...

I read everything and tend to write what I love the *most* to read. :)

L McMaken said...

Hey Pat - My librarian self knows most of my regular patrons by name, and I call them when I get one of their fav authors in. In return, I often get cookies. Yes, I can be bribed!

Blogless Pat said...

Mary I read Summer in Sonoma too. I like Robyn Carr's Virgin River series.

calstephanie said...

Catching up! All the books featured in the hospitality suite sound great! :)

mary f said...

I haven't read Robyn Yet But I plan to remedy that shortly Thanks for the reminder.

Blogless Pat said...

Lol I even have them laughing when they leave me voice mail messages about books I've reserved. My voice mail says leave the message at the growl rrrrrrrrr.

Blogless Pat said...

I agree calstephanie. My to read list is getting longer by the day.

Lucy Monroe said...

Oh and Mary F...I'm reading Run the Risk by Lori Foster and then it's on to Feehan's and Jami Davenport's latest releases.

Lucy Monroe said...

Robin...I love m/m romance. I've got several autobuy authors in that genre.

calstephanie said...

Lucy~ How are you enjoying Run The Risk? I finished it the other day.

Robin Covington said...

Lucy - I will be doing a series of interviews for the Happy Ever After Blog a USA Today with authors of male/male romance. Should be fun

Lucy Monroe said...

I love Lori's stuff because she writes such "heroic" men. I'm really enjoying it so far, but I'm not quite halfway. :)

calstephanie said...

I won't say anything until you're done with it then. :D

calstephanie said...

Lori is one of my must read authors as well. :)

mary f said...

Joan Varner said...

mary f said...

Lucy Monroe said...

Ooooh, Shannon McKenna is an incredible writer! I love Josh Lanyon, JL Langley, LB Gregg, Mary Calmes, Amy Lane...these are all writers I know would not disappoint you MaryF. I've got a ton more on my list. LOL But then that's true of most genres I read. :)
