"The Scroll Thief: a Tale of Ithian" by R. F. Long

Love is the wiliest thief of all.

A Tale of Ithian

Malachy and his sister rely on his talents as a thief to survive the dangerous streets of Klathport, former capital of the once-great kingdom of Ithian. Stealing a few papers should have been a simple job. Instead, it nearly costs their lives and throws them into an improbable alliance with a shape-shifting official, a desert tribeswoman, and a healer of enchanting beauty.

Cerys is far more than a simple healer—and the roots of her mission go deeper into the past than anyone can know. She needs Malachy’s skills to recover a stolen scroll, one that can be used to rewrite history and, in the wrong hands, release the dark powers of the Demon Realm.

Her mission was supposed to atone for a dreadful, long-ago act. Instead, it unleashes a chain of events which sees them pursued through city and desert by the fearsome Dune Witch and a killer known only as His Lordship. Romance, tragedy, and adventure blend in a tale of a magical land on the brink of war, and five unlikely allies who, by putting their lives—and their hearts—on the line, have the opportunity to finally set things right.

But at a terrible cost.

Warning: Contains scenes of graphic violence and torture, captivating magic and beauty, two dashing heroes, three gutsy heroines, several love stories and a heartbreaking sacrifice.

"The Christmas She Rules"

Control is her kink…and she’s losing it.

It’s another gloomy Christmas for Pamela Dane. Not only is it the anniversary of a dark period in her life, but all her friends had the nerve to hook up. It’s not easy for a female Domme to find a playmate. Maybe The Cage in San Francisco will be the perfect place to escape—and find a willing man to chase away the memories.

Christian Nolan is at the BDSM club for the hell of it. Yet the minute Mistress Dane takes control of him, she not only stuns him with her talent, he stuns himself with his willingness to surrender. Her offer to meet him there for another night is intriguing—and frightening.

Pamela’s session with Chris shakes her to the core, resurrecting memories she’s afraid to face. But Chris isn’t willing to let her past haunt her…even if it leaves his heart in tatters.

Warning: Hot, strong man on his knees, which will bring you to yours. Strap-on action, anal play, lots of leather and tons of tension. Alpha male who likes to do whatever the right woman tells him to do, including another woman.

Jaguar's Claim -- Ellora's Cave


A groom in lust, an unwilling bride, one night of dominance both won’t forget.

Tanesha did the sensible thing when her Brazilian family arranged a marriage of convenience to another jaguar shifter. She made a run for it. Now living a cushy life as a call girl in Manhattan, she lost her virginity and her desire to have a lifelong mate in the same second. Up until the crashing stock market robs her of all her savings. Broke, she considers returning to Brazil.

Danilo, bitterly scorned when his virgin bride escaped from under his nose, is none too pleased to hear of her plans to return to Brazil. Gone is his desire to marry, even if a promise given still binds him. Seeking her out, he brings one million dollars, a leather cat-o’-nine whip, and the heated determination to settle a score.

And on her knees—the smacking sound of leather against her bare skin—Tanesha fights against surrendering to the carnal attraction toward the shifter she once scorned.

Jaguar's Claim by Amy Redwood. Read excerpt here.

NaNo Fast Approaching.

So NaNo is quickly creeping up on me. Right now I'm trying to finish things up and be ready to devote myself fully to it. Oh and we'll be heading back to Maine within the next, probably, 3 weeks.

Problem is I'm going to have edits and revisions, along with promo to do next month too.

Before any of this happens I need to finish my New Years novella and get it sent off.

As it stands my goals for November are:

Finish Brazen 3
Brazen 4 is my Nano
If I have any time left I want to work on my Valentine's novella.

I need to stock up on sticky note pads.

They Don't Make Guys Like Him Anymore!

Tanna Aldrick is the captain of a deep space salvage ship in the twenty-ninth century. When she and her all-female crew stumble upon an ancient ship floating in the middle of nowhere, they figure they might be able to find a few valuable tidbits left on the decrepit spacecraft. But what they discover is more valuable than anything they could have ever imagined finding – a gorgeous hunk of a man from the twenty-second century, perfectly preserved in cryogenic suspension. Mankind has changed a lot in seven-hundred years, and six-foot-four, blond-haired, blue-eyed guys like him aren’t just rare; they’re nonexistent. From the moment they revive him, Tanna finds herself falling for their handsome passenger. As logical as her reasons for not getting romantically involved with him are, however, she still finds herself inviting him into her bed.

Garrick Carlisle wakes up after seven-hundred years in hypersleep to find that everything and everyone he knew is gone. Lost and disconnected, the only thing that keeps him from completely losing it is the beautiful and sexy, dark-haired ship’s captain who rescued him.

Tanna isn’t the only person interested in Garrick, though. A man like him would bring a high price on the slave blocks on any number of planets and there are a lot of unscrupulous people in the galaxy willing to do anything to get their hands on him.

How far will Tanna go to protect her valuable cargo and what will Garrick do to stay with the woman he has come to love?

A Damsel Without A Dress is still #1 Romantic Comedy at All Romance Ebooks

Stacey agreed to be her half-sister's Maid of Honor in spite of the fact that the Best Man, Alex Brandelman, pushes all her buttons. He's a major flirt, and worse, he's decided that she's the one he wants. But an encounter with a determined spider leaves her nearly naked in the elevator and in need of rescue.

When the doors open, Alex can't believe his eyes. The woman of his dreams is standing there in her underwear! He may be playing the role of gentleman by scooping her up and taking her to his room, but there's nothing gentlemanly about his desires. With the help of his sisters, he can provide a dress for this damsel, and maybe show her that he's the best man for her.


Stacey noticed something black on a fold of her skirt and reached down to brush it off. It moved. Her hand stilled. A scream froze in her throat. A spider, the size of a quarter, crawled up her side. Her whole body trembled with fear. She knew it was irrational to be afraid of something so small, but she was. Gut-churning, scream-inducing, scared-out-of-her-wits, scared. She grabbed the skirt and gave it a hard shake, hoping the spider would fall off. It climbed higher. And faster! Damn its eight legs!

In a panic, she reached for the zipper under her arm and yanked it down. Whipping the dress to the floor, she kicked it away from her. She edged around the puddle of fabric towards the door in an attempt to get out of the way. The spider crawled into view, and she let out a little squeak. Trapped in the elevator, Stacey couldn’t get away. She had to squish the spider. Knowing there was nothing else she could do, she tentatively stretched out her leg. As if it sensed her movement, the spider dashed to the right and disappeared in the fold of shiny material.

Emitting a noise part growl, part whine, she stepped on the material. The little bugger slipped out of one fold and into another and her steps became stomps, each one emphasized with a grunt. The spider obviously wasn’t intimidated. It somehow managed to get on to the tip of her shoe.

“Ewww,” she squealed, waving her hands vigorously as she shook her foot. Luckily, the spider fell off.

The eight-legged beast scurried back into the pile of cloth. She resumed her stomping, harder this time. The elevator door chimed as the spider surfaced again, this time charging towards her. With one final stomp on the dress, she backed out of the doors into the hall.

“That’ll teach it.” A familiar deep voice said from behind her.

Stacey spun around, coming face-to-ruggedly-handsome-face with Alex. Standing with him was a group of older people obviously waiting for the elevator.

“Good Lord!” An old woman said another chimed in with a not so whispered, “Well I never!”

“I know,” said an elderly man with a chuckle.

Stacey searched for a place to hide. Deciding Alex was her best and only option, she ducked behind him and used his body as a shield. A loud symphony of whistles had her looking over her shoulder at a group of young men coming down the hall from the other direction.

Soul Fire by R. F. Long releases today from Samhain.

Iron born and iron bred.

Trust not iron, it will see you dead.

Rowan Blake could really use a magic wand to keep her struggling art gallery afloat. But the faerie key she stumbles across is far from a lucky charm. It’s a magnet for danger, and by touching it she’s unwittingly put herself in the middle of a war between the forces of light and dark. And in the arms of its rightful owner, Prince Daire.

While searching for his brother, Daire finds himself trapped in the Iron World with a mere mortal woman who ignites his passion like no other. Each stolen kiss deepens their attraction and sends him spiraling closer and closer to the edge of his inherent dark desires. Desires that act as a homing beacon for the Dark Sidhe, who are intent on forcing him to fight on their side.

The longer he lingers in her arms—and in her bed—the closer his enemies get to her door. And the greater the risk that the gateway to the Faerie Realm will shift, destroying not only his power to protect her, but his very life.

Warning: Contains enchantments, danger, some very scary monsters, a trip to the dark side and hot, soul-transforming sex with an immortal prince.

She sees the beauty of mixing silver with gold, and will fight to make him see it, too.When Sid was twenty-two, a summer storm took her into the sea. And then a merman brought her back. Not content with his decision, she dedicates herself to finding him again, ruthlessly exploring the tropical ocean. He's the most beautiful thing she's ever seen, and every inch of her sings "yes" in his presence.When she finds him again, her battle has just begun. For matches between their peoples do not often end happily...

Light on the Water Excerpt:

When she opened her eyes again, the sun was much brighter. The lightning was gone, the water like silk. He angled up and slowed, letting their drift carry them out. The bubble disappeared as they broke the surface and she breathed, deep and even. Spinning in his arms, she let him control their balance, hanging from his shoulders. The sky was cloudy, the water warm but choppy. Looking into his gray face was amazing. There was no doubt he was handsome, sculpted like a roman statue. He had a normal human face in every way. He had eyelashes, and eyebrows, and fluffy black hair that stuck up like otter fur, slightly spiked. His eyes were black, dark enough to hide everything. His touch was so familiar, so right, but his image was utterly alien, something she’d never have been able to imagine even with the help of tequila. She grinned at him. "Wow." He solemnly watched her. Then, ever so slowly, as they bobbed on an upswell, he smiled, too. His gaze was gentle... his teeth were a dolphin’s. Rows of conical teeth made for capturing, puncturing, tearing. When she blinked at seeing them, his smile disappeared. She looked up at his eyes, watching her carefully. He saw her, deeply, clearly. His torso swayed powerfully, the lower half of his body, the powerful, thick peduncle, brushing against her feet every so often. She wanted him. All of him. She yearned to possess him. To be possessed by him. Yes. She had no idea what to say. Her brain was seized by his beauty. So she said that. "You’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen." His eyes tightened first, then his nose flared, and finally his jaw clenched. His hands had been at his side, idly feathering in the water. They stilled first, then his fluke. As they sank, his hands went to her waist, then slowly slid around, one to her tailbone, one to her shoulder, until she was wrapped in his strong arms. The bubble slid into place over her face, but since he held her so closely, it enveloped both of them, joining them in a private underwater world. "You mean that." His voice was normal. Low, manly, nice. A faint lilting accent tinged his words, almost Irish, almost Island. "I do." They stared at each other for more long minutes. All she could hear was her breathing. His hands were fiery, burning the imprint of his fingers into her skin. She flexed her fingers into his shoulders. What did it mean to him to hold her so closely, her breasts now buried in the heat of his chest? She remembered hearing her same ragged breathing in the storm, after the silence descended around her. "You came for me." "You didn’t want to die..." "You saved me." She was not going to ask why. That had been him, putting the air around her face before he’d even reached her. "I didn’t want you to die." Her hands softened on his shoulders, slid to the sloping muscle that connected to his neck, explored the hollows there with her thumbs. Finally, his hands moved idly over her skin. Testing, teasing. The flex of his nails zipped across her skin. Those black eyes stared. Her heart tripped harder, thumping. The merman in her arms wanted her, too.

He may be playing the role of gentleman by scooping her up and taking her to his room, but there's nothing gentlemanly about his desires. With the help of his sisters, he can provide a dress for this damsel, and maybe show her that he's the best man for her.

New Realse

Jinxed by Inez KelleyWhen opposites attract, they are screwed three ways from Sunday.

Frannie learned the hard way that a McHottie doesn’t always equal marriage material. Besides, she’s happy with her vanilla life. She has friends, a career and a double-D-powered vibrator. Then Fate shoves her, literally, into Prince Charming’s lap. His declaration of love at first sight is cute—and spikes her bullcrap meter into the red zone.She’s more than willing to give in with her body. But she’s barricaded her heart behind castle walls—and permanently welded the gates shut.Tragedy taught Jinx that time is too precious to waste, so when a series of uncanny coincidences thrusts Frannie into his life, he holds on tight. He knows she thinks he’s several fries short of a Happy Meal, but he’s determined to breach the fortress around her heart and give her a Happily Ever After.Even if he has to carry her fanny-first into his kingdom.WARNING: Includes jelly shoes, a narcoleptic cat, and meatloaf. The steamy sex scenes may lead to fogged windows and wet panties, so proceed at your own risk. Do not attempt to read without the following items: tissues, napkins for spewed beverages, and a booty call on speed dial.Read an excerpt here. Buy here.

My Heart Is Within You by Marguerite Labbe

On sale NOW at Dreamspinner Press!

The power of heart and soul holds the key to the survival of the last of the ancient vampires. Kristair is running out of time. His race has faded away, prey to delusion and deterioration, and his only chance to live long enough to find a cure is to bind his psyche to a human vessel in a long forgotten ritual.
Kristair's chosen vessel is Jacob Corvin, a man of passionate stubbornness and fierce loyalty; he has captured Kristair's fantasies so completely that he is both the vampire's greatest strength and most crippling weakness. Drawing upon Jacob's spirit and Kristair's resolve, they each bind a portion of their souls to one other. For as long as Jacob carries Kristair's heart within him, the vampire can continue his quest.
Just when they have hope, their mission is threatened by The Syndicate, a group of younger vampires who attempt to force Kristair to teach them his secrets before he disappears like the rest of the ancients. Battling both The Syndicate's attacks and his unexpected need and love for Jacob, Kristair's strength begins to fade, forcing him to make a decision that will change his and Jacob's lives forever.

Title: A Damsel Without a Dress

Author's website:
Publisher: Pink Petal Books
Release Date: May 2009
ISBN: 978-0-9824885-6-0
Length: Novella
Format: Electronic
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Humor
Sensuality Level: 3
Rating: 4.25

A Damsel Without a Dress is cute, sweet, and sexy and is combined with the right amount of humor to make it a winner. This is an easy read that flows well and keeps the reader's attention. I especially liked the fact that it was a spider that put Stacey in her predicament; I can totally relate. Alex is a knight in shining armor that any woman would want coming to her rescue. His character is well-written with realistic qualities. The secondary characters add the right amount of drama without taking anything away from Stacey and Alex. I am a sucker for humor, and this book fits the bill perfectly. If you are looking for a quick, enjoyable book, pick this one up. Ms. Sawyer's writing is delightful.

Jayne Hart has earned her independence by becoming Divinity Corporation’s inter-dimensional boxing champion. Life is great, until a dirty fighter knocks her unconscious. Now, abandoned by the corporation in a parallel world, Jayne will use every weapon she has to be free once more.

Ronen of Firewall longs for a woman to warm his bed and his home, but he had no intention of choosing a bride. In an unprecedented move, one chooses him. Never in the history of the breeding ceremony has a woman dared to lay claim. How can he resist the alluring Lady Jayne? She’s confident and sure in her decision to be with him—until their wedding night when she’s nowhere to be found. But Ronen is not one to shy from a battle. He will find Jayne and when he does, he has one particular “weapon” in mind for taming his seductive, wayward wife.BUY NOW from Jasmine JadeBUY NOW from Ellora's Cave

Our Virgin Experience At Romantic Times Convention 2009


Tuesday 21st
Left on first flight (first ever) at six a.m. out of Bangor Maine. Landed at JFK for connecting flight. So far air sick, mostly on the landings. I don’t like small planes. Hoping for a bigger one soon.

Stuck in Cincinnati/Kentucky or Indiana depending on which sign you read in airport. Our plane arrived late so we got bumped to another one. Got comped food. Yay! Sugars will be way up, but it looks and taste so good.
Might miss RT Virgin workshop tonight, but we can do it in the morning. Maybe tonight we’ll settle in and do some shopping.
Saw my Auntie Kathy getting of a flight from Seattle. She dashed away before we could even say hi.
737 to Orlando big and roomy, hope I don’t get sick. Plane is almost empty. I’ve decided to take a break from my current wips and another short story, or novella.
We’re staying at the wrong hotel so called and switched to one closer. Five minute walk to the convention, but that’s okay with Becky and me. We did Olive Garden for dinner so Becky could get her fix of chicken and gnocchi soup.

Wednesday 22nd
Went to morning mixer, then did RT Virgin. Went to Intergalactic Bar and Grille. Wicked fun and Becky had to wear a flashing tiara. Stopped by the Ebook expo and signing.
We met Eliza Gayle. WOW! She wrote the Pentacles of Magick series. Then after a quick change it was onto vampire workshop. Day went by in a blur of activity and new faces. Got a little promo in. Mostly we just absorbed the atmosphere. Ellora’s Cave Fanasty Party was great. The guys were hot and barely dressed.

Thursday 23rd
Attended morning mystery mixer. Took the Demons Unplugged workshop.

Went to Reader party where we got boas and had a chance to ask the Mr. Romance contestants questions.
The we went to Maria Geraci’s Bunco Babes Bash. Never played before, but this was so much fun I cant wait to play again. I won!!!

We took the keeping it contemporary workshop today. The panel Leann Banks, Catherine Mann, Judi Fennell, and Traci Hall took our small group out to the pool and bought us a round of drinks. Leann Banks and Catherine Mann recommended I sub to Desire (Harelquin, which was on of my goals). Met Catherine later in the hall with Joann Rock they said Presents was acquiring.
The Fairy Ball was amazing.

Friday 24th
Went to Jacquelyn Frank’s Sunrise mixer got books. Did Love Shack: The Sequel had to ask authors questions to win prizes. Sinfully Sweet played game and won gift bags. Becky won a prize for best first line, it had to be made up on the spot. Harlequin 60th Anniversary party was fun. Had mash potato margaritas and Becky got up close and personal with Franco D’ Angelo one of the Mr. Romance contestants.

Enjoyed an author chat with suspense authors. Joan Johnston in the white pants has a row to herself on my bookshelf.
Award Ceremony was nice to see people get honored for their work, but it was a bit boring compared to everything else.
Oh My God. Heather Graham’s Vampire Ball was insane, in a great way. The show was fabulous. The singing and costumes way more than I expected.

Saturday 25th
Went to street party got a bag of books and mixed with everyone. Talked with one of the founders of Torquere. Becky is going to submit to them. Then we went to book fair. Got some books signed and met B.A. Tortuga. Took a long lunch break. Then we went to the Mr. Romance competition, Charles Paz won. After that we went to Splashing by the Shore Dance Party.

Sunday 26th
Took it easy. We walked down and took some pictures of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

Played Gator Golf.
Becky got a slight sunburn. She made the strangest shot I have every seen. I was laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. Instead of into tube and down she used the stairs. LOL! (pics)

Monday 27th
We got up early 9 a.m. for shuttle to airport. We don’t fly out until 1:47pm, but I refuse to miss this flight. Besides we’re taking 3 extra bags (for all the free goodies and prizes we got) home and we needed to check them. We did lunch at the Outback in the airport. Another big plane, but this one was jam-packed. Reminded me if I ever want to do anything like this again that I don’t like to fly. We’ll get in around 10:30pm, I can’t wait.

Okay to recap, we had an awesome time. Definitely going to 2010 in Ohio. Driving, even if I have to rent a van. And this time I’m going to do promo lane and everything. Hopefully by then Becky will be published too.
