The Mer Chronicles Book 1
by Errin M. Stevens
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

The Mer Chronicles Book 2

The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.

For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one's around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won't do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation... 

The solution doesn't inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights - namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they'll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.

Errin Stevens writes paranormal fiction and reads practically everything she can get her hands on. She's currently working through the Time 100 with all her rabid reader buddies at Carpe Librum, and will think about posting reviews if she can get to it... Her first novel, Updrift, debuted Nov. 2015; and the sequel, Breakwater, released Nov. 2016.

In the Heat of the Tropics

by Christina Elliott

GENRE: Romantic suspense



Amid a sweltering Miami summer, a serial killer is haunting the city. Reporter Ingrid Sorenson is assigned the story and her primary source is brusque detective Rick Gonzalez. The pair clash, but sparks of passion ignite. They risk their jobs to give in to their desire, but mistrust of each other’s career motives wedges them apart. Then Ingrid gets a tip that leads her into the killer’s lair. She and Rick must choose between saving themselves or rescuing their love.



She arrived before the police had erected a tent around the victim, and even standing at the mouth of the alley, she could see the silhouette of a man reclining at an odd angle in the driver’s seat of a minivan.

A man murdered in his car. Just like the John Killings. Could the John Killer have returned to mark the year anniversary of his last murder? She tried to control her excitement. If it was the serial killer, this would be a huge story. And she just happened to be working that night.

Then that detective had shown up, wrenching her incredibly good luck to incredibly bad inside two minutes. She still didn’t even know the guy’s name. But maybe he wouldn’t be working the case. Maybe he was just on duty and got the callout, and maybe it wouldn’t matter if he was on the case. Her primary contact at the P.D. was media relations. Still, it was a bad break. Developing a personal relationship with detectives was the way to scoops. She didn’t need him possibly poisoning other cops against her.  

The coroner’s tech was photographing the body and the car. Detective Asshole was standing with folded arms, watching. Every now and then, he turned in her direction—checking on her. With her initial excitement fading to disillusion, a wave of tiredness overcame her. She wiped her forehead with her forearm. The air had cooled at this time of night, but it was still muggy. She trudged back to her car, posted a two-sentence brief online about a suspicious death in an alley north of downtown from her phone and headed home.

As she raced down the normally traffic-choked U.S. 1, she recalled that whole embarrassing video incident.  As Mel had predicted, she’d been hauled into Marlena’s office the next day to give her side of the story. Thankfully, Marlena had concluded that it wasn’t Ingrid’s fault. Why would an undercover operative be so reckless as to show up at a media conference? Still, Ingrid had been nervous that it would be held against her when she applied for the police beat, but it hadn’t. Neither did it seem to matter to Major Montoya when Ingrid had gone to the station to introduce herself as the new Star reporter. The only person who held the grudge was the detective, although he seemed to have landed pretty well if he was investigating homicides.

Despite being an asshole, he was cute, hot actually. But being an arrogant jerk seemed to be the required personality trait of good-looking men, as if they knew handsome guys were in short supply and acted accordingly. Still, Ingrid wondered whether something could’ve developed between them if the video thing hadn’t happened.

She had felt a frisson of … what exactly, attraction? … in that look they’d shared, and he must’ve rushed to get to the door before she left the press conference for a reason. She stopped herself. What-ifs were nothing but a trap of despair.  They didn’t bear thinking about.

She pulled into the driveway, tires crunching over the carpet of red berries fallen from the palm trees in her front yard. She was due back at work in a few hours for her regular day shift. She’d get some sleep and head back to follow up the homicide. If she could break the story that the John Killer had returned, and stay ahead on the story after that, maybe she could nab a promotion to a coveted slot on the investigative team. Then she’d never have to worry about running into Detective Asshole again.



How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

In the Heat of the Tropics is set in the summer in Miami, which is a brutally long, hot and season so the title represents both the physical heat and the sensual heat between the two characters. I love the word “tropic.” It conjures up a lot of great romantic, sensual images. Technically, though, Miami/South Florida is a subtropical climate zone. The mainland US does not have any actual tropical zones. However, “subtropic” just does not have the same sexy ring as “tropic.” So I took a little dramatic license!

Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular design?

It was designed by a fabulous cover artist at Melange Books, my publisher—Caroline Andrus. I specifically requested her because I love her work. She always does really top notch covers. The backdrop is a skyline of Miami Beach at sunset, which generates a warm palette of colors—great for a romance! Then we have the scantily clad couple, which gives an idea of the heat level of the story. I saw it and thought it would definitely stand out on the shelf!

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:
I had a weird case of life imitating art with this book. I used to be a reporter in Los Angeles, and several years ago I got to do a ride-along with a police sergeant named part of an assignment. (A ride-along is when police take citizens out on a tour to see what police work is like.) As we’re driving around, I suddenly realized I was actually living a scene from my book, when Rick takes Ingrid out on a ride-along! I told the sergeant of my weird déjà vu. He smiled but he didn’t seem to really appreciate it. I think he thought it was a unique way of hitting on him!

Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?
Other than reading and writing books, my other passion is travelling. I’ve travelled to about sixty-five countries and I’ve hit every continent. I love other experiencing and learning about other cultures and histories. I’ve still got so many places on my bucket list to visit. Sometimes I think I should just throw a backpack on and hit the road for a while to get to as many as I can!

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?
I had to research alligators, which are very common in Florida. Anywhere there’s water, there’ll be a gator lurking somewhere. Tucker, the killer in the book, lives in the Everglades, where of course there are tons of gators. He poaches them for skins and eats the meat (I’ve heard it tastes like chicken!). So I had to research state laws about alligator hunting, alligator nesting seasons, alligator behavior in hurricanes and storms, as well as which law enforcement agency is in charge of enforcing these laws. It was kind of an odd thing for a romance novel, but I aim to get the details right!

What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?

I’m working on another romantic suspense, titled “Angel’s Lust,” which will be more of a mystery rather than a thriller that is “In the Heat of the Tropics.” “Angel’s Lust” is set in Los Angeles, which besides being the home of Hollywood, but it’s also the home the adult entertainment industry, which is the backdrop for the mystery. The love story is between two homicide detectives competing to solve the suspicious death of an executive that is linked to the adult entertainment industry. The case deepens into sex trafficking and an unsolved murder.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Tell other readers! Either personally or through reviews. Authors appreciate honest reviews and feedback, including criticism as long as it’s respectful, but there’s no need to be cruel or nasty. We know everyone is not going to like everything so it takes courage to put our work out in public for judgment. Think how you would like having your own job performance made public! So we really appreciate it when people take the time to spread the word when they do enjoy it.

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
Don’t give up!  It’s a long, rocky journey to publication and after that, to publishing success. There are few, if any, overnight sensations in this business. You really have to keep at it, out of drive and passion, despite rejection. Rejection is part of the journey. Don’t let it derail you.

Lottie Loves
by Samie Sands


GENRE:   Contemporary Romance



“Will you marry me?”

Four words I’ve waited my whole life to hear. Four words I was sure would change my life forever…and they did. Just not in the way I expected.

Finding out my extremely gorgeous rock star boyfriend was about to propose had the complete opposite effect I thought it would. Rather than catapult me into a future I’ve always wanted, it plunged me back to a past I tried to forget.

Now I can’t get him out of my head. I can’t help but wonder what could have been, how our lives would have ended up if he didn’t leave me behind, a shattered mess.

All these memories are dangerous. They’re bringing my past back to ruin my future. And worst of all, they’re taking me right back to him, my childhood sweetheart, my first love…my biggest regret.



I yanked my phone angrily out of my pocket, not at all in the mood to talk to anyone, least of all the name that I saw plastered across the screen.


I rolled my eyes, almost stuffing the phone back in my pocket, really not wanting to speak to him. My mum had put me in the worst mood, and for the first time ever I wasn’t excited to talk to the man I loved.

Just as my hand slid into my jeans, my heart pounded uncomfortably against my chest, and I rapidly changed my mind. I couldn’t ignore Danny, not when he’d done nothing wrong. Just because I was all shook up and pissed off, it wasn’t his fault. Plus I had no idea when he would call again, so I shouldn’t miss this opportunity.

“Hi…” I started, but Danny jumped in almost instantly, not letting me get a word in edgeways.

“Lottie? Are you okay? It isn’t true, I promise you. I didn’t…it isn’t what it looks like…I…” He sounded panicked and stressed, which meant he wasn’t making any sense, causing everything within me to halt in shock. Danny was a pretty laid back person when it came to most things, so to hear him like that meant that something really bad had happened. I just couldn’t work out what it was…

“Woah, slow down.” I tried to sound calm, but even I could hear the hollow twinge to my tone. “What the hell are you going on about?” I stood outside the front door to my home, unable to even think about hunting through my bag for the key when something so potentially life changing was about to happen.

“You mean you haven’t seen it yet?” He gasped weakly, his words cracking painfully with emotion. I shook my head silently, waiting for him to continue. “I…I thought you hated me already. I thought you knew.” He panted a few times, and I noticed my breaths becoming as ragged as his, as if my body was trying to prepare me for what was to come next. “The newspapers…they’re saying some things. Some awful things…but they aren’t true, I promise you.”

“What do you mean?” I asked, everything swirling around inside of me until I almost felt sick with it all. My brain wasn’t quite processing any of Danny’s words, but my body had already come to its own, very unwelcome, conclusion. “What the fuck are you saying, Danny?”

“At the industry party last night…there was this girl…” 



Why should anyone read your book?

Lottie Loves is all about looking back at the past through rose-tinted glasses, almost to the expense of losing what we have now. There’s something very romantic about the first person we fell for, and I think Lottie’s journey might be one that we can all relate to in some way. It’s easy to look back when the present isn’t perfect!

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

The main character is nicknames Lottie and the plot is all about the people she has loved in her life, so the title came naturally from that. Joe is her first love, the boy she always thought she would marry but unexpected life events got in the way of that…and Danny is the man that she’s in love with now. That is until the rumors of his rock n roll lifestyle become too much for her to bear. 

Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

Lottie is my favorite character, which is probably because the book is solely from her point of view so I got much deeper into her head than any of the other characters. She is the main focus and so is her journey into working out where her life is verses where it should be. When she gets some news that shocks her happy life to the core, she begins to question everything…and that’s something I, and I’m sure others, have been through too. 

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series.

I first published Lottie Loves on my Wattpad account, before it was published, so I got real time feedback with each chapter I posted. There’s a bit of an unexpected twist in the plot, and I loved reading how shocked people were, and how they expected something completely different to happen as they read it.

Where did your love of reading/storytelling/writing/etc. come from?

The first book I wrote was in a completely different genre. Lockdown is a horror and zombie book which I started writing more as something for myself rather than with the thought it would get published, but I enjoyed it so much that I decided to pursue it. Luckily it worked out!

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for a book?

For Forgotten, the second book in my zombie series, I had to do a lot of scientific research into the brain which was…interesting! I learned a lot about biology that I definitely didn’t get from school and that I’m not sure I wanted to know. It made writing the complexities of the zombie turning experience that much more fun though. 

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

My website is, but you can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, and use Instagram a lot too.

What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?

I am currently publishing my newest romance story on Wattpad as well, because I really enjoy the instant feedback. The details for this story are below and it can be read for free here:

Scott and Carlie, Carlie and Scott...

From the moment these two lay eyes on each other it seems inevitable that they'll end up together. Sure, they're young so mistakes are made along the way, but the connection they share is like nothing either of them has ever experienced before.

That is...until fate gets in the way.

A catastrophic event leaves Carlie questioning everything. Every single decision that she's ever made comes under scrutiny, including those that involve Scott.

There's something she needs to say, but is she brave enough or will Carlie always be...Tongue Tied?

Heaven's Watcher by Kayden Claremont | Goddess Fish Promotions Presents #ParanormalRomance #EroticRomance

Goddess Fish Promotions has organized a Virtual Book Blast Tour for Heaven's Watcher by Kayden Claremont, a paranormal erotic romance available now from The Wild Rose Press.

Kayden will be awarding a $10 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Leather-wearing, motorcycle riding PI Heaven Vaughan is working undercover in a Las Vegas casino for the DA. She must find the evidence to convict the casino boss of ordering her brother killed, but the tall, dark, sex-on-a-stick head of security is constantly watching her. Just knowing he’s got his monitors focused on her makes her hot, and she can’t help but make sure he has something as equally arousing to look at.

Straight-arrow Darius Turner has one job—to safeguard the people in the casino. The feisty redhead dominating his viewing pleasure is playing havoc with his duties and with his libido. All he wants is to take her up on her teasing invitations, but he can’t let her get too close. If Heaven discovers his true identity, there’ll be hell to pay.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

Darrius stepped closer to Heaven. His scent of musk and hot male surrounded her as if for protection.

“Are you all right?”

No way would she believe Darius was concerned for her.

She raised her chin so she could meet the head of security’s eyes. “I’m fine.”

“I think you should come with me to the office.” Concern laced his words.

Heaven licked her dry lips. Because the behemoth noticed her, she now had to deal with him. “Said I’m fine.”

The corner of his mouth turned up into a generous smile. “Humor me.”

Some might consider him as handsome, but his seven-foot-tall frame and stern expression made him appear menacing.

“Sure.” She smiled.

His expression softened.

Could the goliath be swayed with a smile?

She followed him toward the door leading to the private elevator. He slowed his gait until she walked beside him. As they approached the door, it opened. She knew he’d pressed the switch in his pocket.

He controlled everything in the building. He enjoyed being in charge. So did she.

In the elevator, he gazed at her as his scent permeated the small space, sending a pulsing electricity down her spine. She shifted her weight from her left foot to her right and back again, trying to ease the need building between her legs. Being so close to him suddenly caused the air to escape her lungs.

“You realize this isn’t necessary.”

He straightened his gold cufflinks. “I think it is.”

HER RODEO MASTERS by Anya Summers | Goddess Fish Promotions Presents Erotic Romance

Goddess Fish Promotions has organized a Virtual Book Blast Tour for HER RODEO MASTERS by Anya Summers, an erotic romance available now from Blushing Books.

Anya will be awarding a $15 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Her Rodeo Masters
by Anya Summers


GENRE: Erotic Romance



Ivy Phillips is on a mission. She’s an investigative reporter for the Pasadena Tribune, and is hoping to write the story of the century by infiltrating Pleasure Island claiming to be a submissive. Except, when she gets there, she inadvertently finds herself auctioned off for charity and now has two hunky cowboys who want to own her body and soul.

Dax Johnson and Nate Banks have been a rodeo team – and lovers – for years. But they’ve yearned to add a sweet submissive to their union. When they meet Ivy, Dax knows she is the one for them, and the duo set out on a seductive campaign to win Ivy’s affection.

But when the truth is revealed, will their newfound relationship survive? Or will the two cowboys ride off into the sunset without her?

Publisher’s Note: This is the ninth – and final – instalment of Anya Summers’ bestselling Pleasure Island series. While we recommend all the books, it can be enjoyed on its own.



Ignoring the roiling mass of coffee churning in her stomach, she approached her boss. Don gave her a ‘what now?’ scowl.

“Sir, let me do this and not the horoscopes. I really think there’s something here. There’s a club that has a private section,” Ivy explained.

“That’s not news, Ivy, that’s Hollywood spilling over up interstate 210. Most of the posh clubs within fifty miles of downtown Los Angeles have a VIP section,” Don said, shaking his head, his frustration with her palpable.

“Yes, but I know that this one is different. My instincts—”

Don gave her a patronizing glower. “Ivy, you’re a great writer, which is why I hired you in the first place, but investigative reporting is not the right fit for you. I’ve been in the news business longer than you’ve been alive and I know a thing or two. I need you to trust me on this and do the job I’ve hired you to do.”

She flinched. “Just give me this one chance. Let me investigate this, and if I’m wrong—”

“If you’re wrong, you go back to writing what I assign you, no more questions asked,” Don finished for her.

“I won’t let you down. I can do this, sir,” she replied.

“We’ll see. You still have to do the horoscope pieces this week, along with the rest of your workload,” Don said, not giving her an inch of space.

“I understand. Thank you, sir,” she said and walked toward the conference door.

“Don’t thank me yet. Because if you truly fuck up and harm a business without sufficient proof, you won’t be writing anything—you’ll be unemployed,” Don threatened.

The spurt of confidence she’d felt deserted her as the realization sank in. She’d just bet her career on the off-chance that she had a story.

Ivy slunk back to her office, her knees shaking. She ignored the evil smirk from Stuart and the pitying glances from the rest. She could do this: she could be an investigative journalist, just like her father. Back in her workspace, she sat at her desk and stared at the letter from Dungeon Pleasures. There was no time like the present to shake up her life and dive in. Tonight would be the perfect night to begin her investigation. And, if fear slithered through her system at the thought there was a chance she could lose everything she’d worked for, she shelved it for later.

She didn’t have time to be a wimp. This was her ‘go big or go home’ moment.
