About Shirley
 
What does a geeky math nerd know about writing romance?That’s a darn good question. As a former techy I’ve done everything from computer programming to international trainer. Prior to college I had lots of different jobs and activities that were so diverse, I was an anomaly.

None of that qualifies me for writing novels. But I have some darn good stories to tell and a lot of imagination.

I have lived in Colorado, Hawaii and currently Washington. Going from two states with 340 days of sun to a state with 340 days of clouds, I had to do something to perk me up. And that’s when I started this new adventure called author. Joining the Romance Writers of America and two local chapters, helped me learn the craft quickly and has been a ton of fun.

My family consists of two grown children, their spouses, two adorable grand-daughters, and one grand dog. My favorite activity is playing with my grand-daughters!

When the girls can’t play with their amazing grand-mother, my interests are reading and writing, yay! I started reading at a young age with the Nancy Drew mysteries and have continued to be an avid reader my whole life. My favorite reading material is romance in most of the genres, but occasionally other stories creep into my to-be-read pile, I don’t kick them out.

Some of the strange jobs I have held are a carnation grower’s worker, a trap club puller, a pizza hut waitress, a software engineer, an international trainer, and a business program manager. I took welding, drafting and upholstery in high school, a long time ago when girls didn’t take those classes, so I have an eclectic bunch of knowledge and experience.

And for something really unusual… I once had a raccoon as a pet.

Author: Amelia Simone
Genre: Sci-Fi Romance w/PNR
Release Date: July 2, 2020
Welcome back to the world of the Affinity Guilds . . . can a pariah Guild princess and a pilot with a hazy past find something more than comfort amidst chaos?
Victoria Gardner was used to being the villain in other people’s stories. ‘Poison Pucker’ in the press translated to ‘pariah’ in the Guilds. Her affinity made her dangerous, but only to those who crossed her. When she arrives home to discover her sister abducted, it ignites every protective instinct. Kidnap and blackmail were trouble enough, but needing a stranger’s help to save her sister was worse. Trustworthy allies were few and far between in her life.
Dominic Dawes is done risking his life for the greater good. He needs to get paid. His for-hire status and transport pod make him the perfect partner for Victoria’s rescue attempt. His cocky attitude and rough brand of handsome are the only red flags.

Their journey through the jungles is steamy and dangerous, filled with unexpected players crashing their plans.

One night together left them both thirsty for more. Can Victoria save her sister without sacrificing her heart? Will Dom’s need for credits keep him on mission when he discovers Victoria isn’t what she seems, and his old life beckons?

Poison Pill is Book 3 of the Affinity Guild Files series, but can be read as a stand-alone sci fi romance. Check out Trojan Con and Revenge Gambit to catch up on earlier Affinity Guild adventures.

“Battle for Daylight” Series: Crescent Moon Chronicles Book 2 by Author L.E. Towne, Genre: Urban Fantasy is Available Now! @LauraETowne @EJBookPromos #NewRelease

Title: Battle for Daylight
Series: Crescent Moon Chronicles Book 2
Author: L.E. Towne
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: July 1, 2020
Marlowe:
Christopher Marlowe battles his destiny to get back to the present and to the love of his life, Tam Paradiso. But when he finally escapes Tudor London for modern-day Philadelphia, it’s two years in Tam’s past, and she has no idea who he is. He can comfort her as she mourns her dead father and charm her family as they accept that Tam’s destiny is linked with his. He can even help her fight the mysterious rain spirit responsible for a series of grisly murders. But can he make her fall in love with him all over again?
Paradiso:
After two years as an undercover vice officer, Tam Paradiso wants out. She belongs in the homicide division as a detective like her father was. But she’s up against her partner, the beautiful and reckless Ava Knox, for the job. When Tam’s father dies suddenly, she reaches her low point. Still, she must solve a serial murder case, keep her interfering family at bay, and fend off a crazy, sexy time traveler who claims they are lovers in her future. At least her murder suspect is a human villain, not a supernatural one. Or is it?

L. E. Towne continues her time-travel saga in BATTLE FOR DAYLIGHT, a heady blend of suspense, sex, and the supernatural. Silver-tongued Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe charms his way back to the side of scrappy vice cop Tam Paradiso. In a narrative pebbled with literary and historical nuggets, nothing slows the pace as Tam and Marlowe hunt monsters and hammer out a relationship. Threats abound—a serial killer, a mysterious rain spirit, a smarmy lieutenant, and time itself, which any moment might snatch Marlowe from Tam’s grasp. This second volume in the Crescent Moon Chronicles is as exciting as the first. –Nancy Young, author of Something in the Dark Series

L. E. Towne is a self-proclaimed reluctant traveler and a continual student of the human condition known as real life. Her work has been published in Welter, Legendary, Zouch, and Main Street Rag, and Foliate Oak Literary Magazine. Her debut novel is Knight of the Crescent Moon, the first of the Urban Fantasy series, Crescent Moon Chronicles, and is available on January 1, 2020. In between novels, she has written and produced several short plays. She currently resides in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her tuxedo cat, Kat Marlowe.

They think they’ve lost everything. But then they find each other. 
 
RAINE
I’m the clichéd “poor little rich boy”
I have everything I want, but nothing I need
I get high to escape the lows of my past
Yet there’s no escaping the monster in the mirror
I’ve always been about taking, until I took too much 
They paid the price, and it’s a debt I can never repay 
So I’m killing myself slowly 
Because I can’t bring myself to end it fast
NOA
I know what it is to have loved and lost
Now I’m slowly picking up the pieces of my life
I should put my needs first, but that’s not me
If someone’s broken I need to fix them
Even if I get hurt along the way
Nobody should feel like they want to die 
My love alone wasn’t enough before 
So this time I’m determined to be a reason to live

 

MV ELLIS knows what it’s like to fall head over heels in love with a badass musician. She followed her heart halfway around the world to be with one. She moved from London to Sydney after a steamy holiday romance with a sexy bass player in sultry Brazil.
 
Twelve years, two children and a dog later, and she’s still smitten. All this with a guy she sat next to on a bus for 36 hours! She has toured internationally as a ‘WAG’, and her experiences inspire her writing.
 
Ellis’ love of romance began when she was 11 years old, after a summer spent secretly reading her auntie’s books. She’s been a sucker for an alpha hero and strong heroine ever since.
 
An avid reader, Ellis always knew that she’d write a book of her own one day. She was right about that. Following a career spanning advertising, marketing, and social media, she finally wrote Catching London in 2017. She has continued to expand the Heartless Few series beyond Catching London, with releases planned through to 2020. In addition, she has launched a new four-part
 
series, Rough Ink series, set in the sexy world of a New York tattoo studio.

Excerpt
“I can’t get
over how big this place is.” Tris’Tyn’s voice broke Bash’s sexual fantasy
starring Freya.
“It’s huge, so
large that you’re not sure how to deal with all of it.” A grin flashed on
Freya’s face. Bash scowled at her choice of words as memories of the first time
they made love surfaced. She’d never seen one in person before and worried he
wouldn’t fit. He’d proven that theory wrong.
“It’s nothing
like the Resistance camp I came from.”
“That’s because
they weren’t the Resistance.” Bash growled as he raised an eyebrow at
Freya.
“I meant to ask
what you meant by the ‘real Resistance’.” Tris’Tyn’s gaze bounced to her.
“You don’t have
to worry about that anymore. You’re with us now and soon we’ll strike the final
blow to ARI and the Sovereign. Then everyone will be free.” Nova
interjected with a glare at both Freya and him. Busted. 
After Tris’Tyn and
Nova got off the lift, Freya grinned at him. When she straightened from the
wall as the doors opened at their stop, Bash swooped her up into his arms then
tossed her over his shoulder. It brought back memories of the first time he’d
done it at the safe house where they’d stayed right after they met.
“Are you
serious right now?” Her fists pounded against his back.
“Sorry, not
sorry.” He didn’t hold back the laugh. “But if you want to give me a
massage, my lower back is a bit tight.”
She slapped his ass
before giving in. Just like last time, there was only so far she could go
without hurting him and he knew she wouldn’t risk that.
Placing his hand
against the wall to reveal the bioscanner, he remembered it was unnecessary.
All he had to do now was imagine the door opening and his nanites used the
wireless communication system to pass the security codes and open the door.
Another thought sealed the door as he tossed Freya on the bed.
Scrambling to sit
up, she glared at him. “Was that really necessary?”
“Not in the
slightest, but it was fun.

Have you ever wondered how soulmates fall in love after they meet?One touch was all it took to pierce through the hatred, the revenge, the payback that kept Reaper’s sanity in check. Unable to bear to be touched, Ginny breezed through his safeguards, stirring the flames of desire and trying to make him believe love was possible again, while his tortured soul just wanted to find the peace he had promised himself once all his enemies were there to keep him company in hell.

One look was all it took for Ginny to recognize her soulmate. Now she was determined to show him that love, mercy, and forgiveness would bring the light back into his life. Her warrior was no longer fighting alone to battle his nightmares, and this Kentucky woman wasn’t afraid of stealing his heart and making it hers.

Having lost faith in love, The Last Riders, and himself, it was only when Ginny committed a desperate selfless act of love that Reaper realized that, to save her, he was going to have to put his life on the line again. This time if he lost, not only would he lose Ginny, but the Last Riders forever.

How was he supposed to know his wrath could cost him everything?

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.
 
​Taking after my mother, I’ve always loved to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.
 
For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children, my daughter is also an author, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.
 
All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Title: Stolen Wife
Author: Carina Blake
Genre: Romance Suspense w/ Dark Elements
Release Date: June 30, 2020

 

I’ll do whatever it takes to get her in my arms, even kill my brother.
I’ll do everything in my power to destroy all who came between us.
The second I held the wedding photo of Giada with my brother, my revenge became tainted with possessiveness so profound that I grew colder. Calculating. Obsessed.
I’d do anything to get my desire. To taste her.
Giada is mine, and it didn’t matter the how or why, because she just is. I’ll play her name in my head—my sirens song—as I remove her from my brother’s grasp and take her for my own.
One by one, I’d get my vendetta on those who sent me away while claiming what was never theirs.

 

 

 

I wake up groggily with my head fuzzy, but from the looks of it unharmed. Maybe last night had all been a dream. Did I really dream about Santino kissing me? I’m glad Rafael didn’t come in and hear me if I did. I roll over onto my back when I hit a large frame. A frame much larger than Rafael’s. I reach out and feel a muscular chest. I open my eyes and see Santino with his elbow propping him up as he looks at me.

“Good morning.” The smile on his face almost makes me forget the danger we’re in.

“Good morning? Are you nuts? What are you doing in my bed? Rafael will kill you. Oh my goodness. I wasn’t dreaming.” My heart’s racing as fast as my mind is. I can already picture Rafael and his goons busting down the doors and shooting up the place on principle alone. Or maybe they’ll just torture us to death. I look into his eyes and all I see is mirth, which pisses me off as much as it turns me on.

“You thought you dreamed of me, baby?” He slides his hand over my hip and under my nightgown. My skin tingles from the gentle grip he exerts. God, how am I getting turned on?

It makes me mad how hot he is, and I become flustered with his touch. I shove his hand away and glare at him. “That’s not what I meant.”

“It doesn’t matter. You’re not in your bed at the compound. You’re in our bed in my home.”

“What?” I flip around and look. This isn’t my room. The room is made of clean lines, greyish-blue walls with a large television mounted to the wall. I’m confused and taken aback by this. Slamming my eyes shut, I take several deep breaths and then pinch myself.

“You’re not dreaming. I took you, and you’re here. End of story.” He sits up in the bed, and it’s the first time I notice that he’s ripped from his shoulders down to his…oh my goodness. He’s extremely hard right now. I turn to look away. “Are you hungry?”

“I’m not sure,” I respond with a barely audible whisper. My confusion has only grown. I stand to get some space between us and then it dawns on me that I’m not in my nightgown anymore. Instead, I’m in a big tee shirt with my hard nipples pressing against the letters.

“You took off my clothes? Are you trying to get us killed?” I cover my chest, like it does me any good. The man took off my clothes last night. Did he do anything else to me?

“I’m not afraid of any of them. And yes. Do you think I’d let you wear something my brother probably has fucked you in? I don’t want anything of his tainting my home.” I’m seeing a change in his mood. His temper’s slipping past that cool, calm, sexy façade. It’s as if my heart’s breaking, which makes absolutely no sense since I’ve never had a chance for love to come and tear it apart.

I glare at him and test his actions. I have to know who I’m dealing with. “Well, then, I should go, since I’m his.” He jumps off the bed and crosses the distance between us. Unable to stop myself, I flinch, waiting to feel the sting. He’s much larger than his brother and father, and I know this will hurt more, and not only physically.

“I’m not him and you’re not his,” he growls, dragging me with one arm around my waist and the other in my hair. His mouth slams down on mine. God, that kiss had been real. Before I can melt into him, he pushes off of me.

“That was wrong,” I say as I watch him get dressed. Santino slips on a white undershirt and a pair of grey dress slacks before sliding on a crisp white dress shirt.

He turns around to face me with the shirt still wide open. I’m amazed by the feral look in his eyes. From head to toe this man is perfection, but his mouth on mine was the most insanely sexy thing in the world I’ve ever experienced.

He stalks toward me, but this time I don’t flinch because I’m ridiculously hoping for another kiss. He tips my chin with his thick thumb, pulling my bottom lip from under the grip of my upper teeth. “Felt fucking right to me.” My body heats up and I breathily look up into his eyes that are trained to my lips, waiting for more. Instead, he steps back and says, “Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a call to make. Please eat.” He points to the trays on the table that’s in the middle of the room.

“So you’re going to leave me up here locked away?” I ask, changing one cell for another.

“Damn right,” he growls, nodding his head as he grabs his phone and gun.

Excerpt
I meandered through
the crowd, saying hello to several people I knew, until I came to an abrupt
halt. Across the room, standing alone against a window, was the woman who
rarely left my mind. Eliza was absolutely stunning. The royal blue dress hugged
her every curve. The neckline was modest and it nearly reached her ankles, but
the color was perfect on her and only made her beautiful eyes pop with color. I
could count on one hand the number of times I’d ever seen her hair down.
Tonight, it spilled over her shoulders in soft waves. 
As though sensing my
gaze, her eyes locked on mine and my heart stuttered inside my chest at the
wide smile she sent my way. My feet led me over to her. 
“Good evening. You
look…wow.” My eyes continued to take her in. 
A bright pink dashed
across Eliza’s cheeks. “Aren’t you the flatterer.” She nervously smoothed her
dress down her stomach. “Are you sure I look okay? Ava and I went panic
shopping today, because I didn’t have anything suitable in my closet. I didn’t
want to be underdressed, but I also didn’t want to go too extravagant.” 
Catching her fingers
in my hand, I brushed my lips across her knuckles staring into her eyes.
“You’re absolutely perfect.”
