The Pirate's Jewel
by Ruth A. Casie | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for THE PIRATE'S JEWEL?

Have you ever read a book with secondary characters that scream for a story of their own? Or better yet, characters you want to know more about. Wesley Reynolds and Darla Maxwell, the central characters of The Pirate's Jewel are the parents of Lisbeth Reynolds, the heroine in my story, The Guardian's Witch. They have a small part in the story and begged for one of their own.

Q: I understand it's set in the world of the series Pirates of Britannia. What's...

HEADLINES

Charlotte
Travis MacGregor came to Oregon City to start over. Determined to put his past behind him, he believes a proper wife is all that's missing from the proper life he's always wanted. He has worked hard to establish his formal reputation as an upstanding and no-nonsense lawyer. However, the moment he meets Charlotte Taylor, he can't fight his attraction despite her unconventional, hell-raising ways. Charlotte "Charlie" Taylor has been dressing like a man and wearing guns since her father kicked her out of the house when she was seventeen. She is perfectly happy with her life until she meets the insufferable Travis MacGregor. He claims to desire her, but how can she trust the new lawyer in town when he makes it no secret that he needs a proper wife to make his dreams come true. Charlie isn't the "proper" anything, but that doesn't stop her wayward heart from feeling things she never imagined possible. But can he accept her as she is, or does he want her to change? To adapt? To become the proper, dress-wearing hostess of his dreams? And when the villain stalking Charlie comes to town, will the danger bring them together or tear them apart forever?

Take You Away Is Available For Pre-order!
Take You Away is available for pre-order at Amazon. Night time can be frightening, especially when you're all alone. Zoe captured Ben's heart, the way no other person could. She tamed his anger and eased his sorrow over the loss of his brother. He'd do anything to be with her, but he can't get through the walls around her heart. Ben is the perfect man—hotter than a fresh-out-of-the-oven loaf of bread and sweeter than a pumpkin pie. For two years he's been her mainstay, giving her solace and a sense of safety. And although they are online-gaming buddies only, she wishes he could make her nightmares go away. Scared to leave the confines of her home, she wants to be with Ben, but only if her violent past stays away from her doorstep and out of her head.
Submitting To The Cattleman
NEW RELEASE Why does doing the right thing have to be so hard? Leslie Collins has been asking herself that question ever since her eye-witness testimony in a murder case landed her in the Witness Protection Program far away from everything and everyone she's ever known. Now, four years later, she struggles with growing despondency over the circumstances that prevent her from forming a relationship. When she allows her loneliness to get the better of her and indulges in a one-night stand, she never dreams her stranger will show up again at the private club she's stayed away from for a few weeks. Kurt Wilcox returns home to Montana to help his father recover from a stroke and hopefully mend the rift between them. He doesn't plan on rescuing a woman from a mugging and ending up succumbing to the loneliness reflected on her face and indulging in a one-night stand. When he meets up with Leslie at his club, he refuses to let her hide her identity or her reasons for inviting a stranger into her home and bed. Leslie finally caves to his persistence and agrees to an affair that seems promising until she learns her identity has been comprised and an attempt on her life forces out the truth about her past. Will putting her trust in her Dom jeopardize him and his employees when she agrees to his protection, or will Kurt rid her of the threat against her, as he promises, leaving her free to embrace her own HEA? This is book six in the Cowboy Doms series but can be enjoyed as a standalone. Publisher's Note: This contemporary, western romance contains elements of mystery, suspense, danger, power exchange, BDSM, and sensual scenes. If any of these bother you, please do not purchase.

Arctic Heat
