A Highlander for Christmas by Paula Quinn

As the bard of the MacGregor clan, Finlay Grant is a natural-born charmer. He can easily win the heart of any lass . . . but somehow, the right words to express his love for stunning Leslie Harrison have eluded him. Yet as Christmastide approaches, Finn knows he must find a way to propose to the raven-haired beauty who has stolen his heart.

A Knight’s Redemption by Catherine Kean

Six Christmases ago, after refusing his kiss, Lady Mary Westbrook was locked in the dungeon by Lord Holden Kendall, a squire at Branton Keep. When an attempted child abduction days before Christmas brings Holden back to the castle, Mary must confront again what happened between them.

Holden is a grown warrior now, and he resolves to not only make matters right with Mary but finally win her kiss. Yet, as peril ensues, Mary must risk far more than a chance at true love. 


Christmas in Camelot by Brenda Jernigan

Sir Nicholas the Dragon’s orders are clear. He is to fend off the enemy besieging Noelle’s castle and bring the lady safely back to Camelot for her wedding day to Sir Gavin. But spending time with the proud beauty awakens an irresistible hunger in Nicholas. Now, as desire does battle with duty, Nicholas has only two choices — to surrender the woman he loves to another man or fight to the end to make her his own.

Spooktacular Feature Enemy Games by Marcella Burnard and Giveaway


RECIPE: Deviled Potato Bites

This is a plant-based, vegan, gluten free recipe. It doesn't look creepy, which bums me out, but with 'deviled' in the name, you can't go wrong. And these things are devilishly tasty.

You'll need to buy a pack of baby yellow potatoes. Rinse them, cover them with water in a pot and boil just until they're fork tender. I start checking at about 8 minutes. Once a fork pierces the largest potato easily, remove the potatoes from the heat and drain. Set aside.

Now for the 'deviled' part

You'll need:

1-2 Medjool dates - Pitted
1/4 Cup boiling water
Place your dates in a blender. Pour the boiling water over them to soften them for a few minutes.

1 Can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1 TBSP spicy brown mustard
1-2 tsp dijon
2 cloves garlic
2 TBSP lemon juice

Place these ingredients in the bowl of a food processor with the blade fitted inside it.

Blend your dates in the soak water. Start on low, then turn up the speed and let them get pulverized. If your dates were really hard, you'll be happier if you soak them longer, even overnight. I find the organic medjool dates in the produce section of my local grocery store are moist and soft enough to use with maybe five minutes of soaking. You'll have to experiment there. Once the dates and water have been blended, add them to the other humus ingredients in the food processor. Rinse down your blender with a little more hot water - you might add it to your humus as you process it.

Turn on the food processor and process your mixture down to a texture that pleases you, adding a bit of the rinse water from your blender as needed to achieve the consistency you prefer. Taste for spices and adjust to your taste. The dates add sweetness to the mix and most closely mimics the flavors of Deviled Eggs from my childhood. You may prefer to omit them. If you do, use plain water or veggie broth to thin your humus as it blends.

Cut your reserved potatoes in half. Use a melon baller and scoop a divot out of the inside of the potatoes. Spoon the humus into the cavities. Dust with smoke paprika and chives. Then watch yourself eat them all in one sitting!

While combating a plague, scientist Jayleia Durante becomes a pawn in a greater game.

She reacts to Damen's charm and seductive power, so why does he question her motivation?Conflicted loyalties and enemies abound...Traitors and the alien enemies threaten to destroy the galaxy. Jayleia must choose.

Betray her father, risk her friends, and lose Damen, or prevent an Interstellar war?


Excerpt:

Damen, fully dressed, left the tiny chamber by stalking straight up to her and glaring at her, a knot in his jaw. If she backed up, she’d collide with the bed. His bed. Muscles low in her abdomen clenched tight. Confusion rocked her. What had happened to make her react to the man? She sidled away, circling toward the open shower door. He leaned in, his gaze holding hers. Rational thought evaporated. She stumbled into the sanitizer. “What aren’t you telling me?” he murmured, his gaze fixed on her mouth. The air left her lungs and she struggled to recall that she had no business hoping Damen would make good his implied threat to kiss her. Pressing her lips tight, trapped by his gaze, she nudged the button to activate the system. The door shut in his face.

Almost too easy.
Just when she gets comfortable with how perfect her life is going, an unforgettable Elvis at a costume party will make Hunter forget everything she was taught about propriety, leading to a night of drunken abandonment and dangerous encounters that will set in motion a web of little white lies which could undo everything she has worked so hard for.

When his work supplies start to go missing, Graham falls behind on the stage build for the fall festival, and Chloe steps in to lend the hunky contractor a hand.

Propositioning the Playboy by JM Stewart Book Tour & Giveaway


Propositioning the Playboy
The Blue Room Book 2
by JM Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Rule #1: Don't fall in love. Rule #2...see rule #1...


Grace Williams doesn't need a hero. She can take care of herself, thank you very much. Surviving foster care and becoming a respected scientist certainly taught her how. Now, she's finally ready to do something for herself and have a baby. All she'll need is a genetically blessed donor who won't get any ideas in his head about sticking around after the job's done. And she has the perfect gorgeous, commitment-phobic donor in mind.

Liam McNamara doesn't want a relationship. Being abandoned by his mother at a young age and his failed marriage cured him of any romantic notions he might've had. But when his best friend's sexy older sister asks him for a favor, he can't say no. And if he manages to give her a few--or a few hundred--orgasms in the process? All the better. It's a winning proposition all the way around.

It's not long before their best laid plans are blown out of the water by the last thing either of them expected to get out of the deal--genuine feelings. Maybe love isn't such a losing proposition after all...


Easily read as a standalone!




JM Stewart writes heartfelt contemporary romance. Whether the heat level is sizzling or sweet, her stories are always deeply emotional. Her heroes are strong but sensitive (no alpha jerks here!), and her heroines are more Cinderella than Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


Recently transplanted, she now lives in a small town in Texas along with her husband, two sons and two very spoiled dogs. When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking and playing computer games. As a sensitive soul with a romantic heart, she believes in angels and hopes everyone finds their happily ever after.

The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire by Colette L. Saucier Book Tour & Giveaway


The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire
Books I and II
by Colette L. Saucier
Genre: Paranormal Regency Romance 

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: The definitive vampire adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and its sultry sequel in one volume!



Books 1 and 2 of the award-winning, international bestselling Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire, re-released in this special edition only on eBook for a limited time at an incredible price.



BOOK I: Pulse and Prejudice

Elle Magazine selection "A Most Inventive Adaptation" (April, 2016)
Austenprose "Readers' Choice, Top 5 Books of the Year" (2012)
1st Place Winner in Category, 2013 Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy - elegant, dark, brooding...vampire. The Master of Pemberley tells his haunting tale of unquenchable desire and forbidden love.

"I cannot express enough how skeptical I was upon starting this book. Pride & Prejudice with a touch of vampires was enough to send me into fits of eye rolls. But, within only the first chapter, I found myself strangely drawn to the story. The vampire Darcy weaves his spell quickly." - Austenprose

Book II: Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth
In this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, death shadows the newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London to the courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the trials and travails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe that she loves him as he is? Or will his jealousy tear them apart?

This is the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice; however, as it is not an Austen adaptation, the reader will find it darker, bloodier, and more provocative than Book 1.

"After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth's love and devotion to each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger. It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights."
C.A. Pepe, Just Jane 1813







Colette L. Saucier is a bestselling and award-winning author in a variety of genres under multiple pseudonyms.

Elle Magazine named Pulse and Prejudice a "Most Inventive Adaptation" of Pride & Prejudice in their April 2016 edition. It was also selected the 2013 1st Place Winner in Category: Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction.
An abridged version of The Proud and the Prejudiced: A Modern Twist on Pride and Prejudice was selected a 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Semi-finalist and Austensque Reviews’ Favorite Modern Adaptation under the title All My Tomorrows.
