Honey Trap Alexis Fleming

Seductive scents…torrid suspense…

For Australian scientist Kyla Harris, danger is not her middle name, but when she invents cologne that acts as an aphrodisiac, she becomes embroiled in a CIA case. Sexy American agent Logan Matthews is assigned as her bodyguard when someone tries to steal her sensual formula. Kyla finally has the edge in the war of the sexes and Logan Matthews is her target. A little fun in bed…on the desk…in the Aussie bush—what better way to test her cologne?

It’s just a shame Logan’s only reacting because of the formula…or is he?
Ningaloo Nights Tracy Cooper-Posey
New York cop Sherry Abandonato cashes in her savings and dashes to Ningaloo in remote northwest Western Australia to find her sister who disappeared ten days ago. The only one with the skill to guide her to Derremawan is Mason Hayward, once an official guide with a reputation for getting people out of trouble, but now the town’s bad man.

In a searing afternoon of unexpected passion, Mason strikes a bargain. He’ll get her to Derremawan, if she agrees to go there with him unconditionally, on his terms and his conditions.

Sherry is astonished to find herself agreeing to the insane bargain, and worse, responding positively to the idea of three days of Mason Hayward dictating terms out under the Australian sun.

Timeless Wrath Lexxie Couper

Beatrice “Ricki” Sullivan is every man’s fantasy. Drop-dead gorgeous, she exudes a sensuality none can ignore. More than just a stunning face and body, she’s intelligent, kind, gentle…and madly, inexplicably in love with Evron, a man she’s known mere hours.

Evron McKenzie is troubled, struggling with undeniable anger that scorches through his veins. And the irrational feeling he is someone else, something more. Someone rich, powerful…someone to fear. But in Ricki’s arms, Evron may have finally found his place in the world. At last he is at peace.

So who is the seductive redhead who invades Evron’s dreams? Why does she urge him to touch a mysterious sculpture—a sculpture that seems to radiate death and sin? How can she make him hornier than he’s ever been in his life with just a look, and at the same time turn his anger into bloody, murderous rage? And, more frighteningly, why can’t he resist her?

Every day I tell myself I have to start blogging again and every night I realize I’ve avoided it again. Not because I don’t want to do it, but because it means addressing my husband’s death. It’s five months now since Brian died and I still have days when I just fold into a heap and sleep and cry the day away. But mostly, I’m managing the normal things during the days, managing to stay on top of things.  I know this grief thing is something I have to work through, but I didn’t realize it turns your brain to mush. I find myself having to write notes to remember things I have to do. Should see my office and kitchen. LOL I have yellow Post-It notes all over the place, but hey, it works.

I’ve even started writing again. My daily word counts are down compared to what they used to be, but it’s a start. I polished up a manuscript I’d finished before Brian became sick and sent it off to a couple of publishers. Now I just wait to see if they are interested. And in the meantime I’ve started working on another paranormal romance. Paranormal suits me at the moment because I can allow my emotions free reign in the darker paranormal moments of the story. Lighthearted and comedic is beyond me right now.

And in among all this, our daughter presented me with two lovely new grandsons, twins Xavier and Caleb. It was bittersweet because their granddad wasn’t here to see them, but my daughter swears her dad was with her during the birth.

Meet my new grandsons. Aren’t they delightful?

A proud big brother - all three of my grandchildren.

That’s me for the night. It’s getting late and I need to head to bed, but I promise to come back tomorrow with another little bit of good news I didn’t expect during this time.
