Finding Susan ~ New Release
Only 99c until November 1! A real life story of deceit, acceptance, and the quest to find true love, while staying true to yourself. The last thing Renay Skovgaard expected was to find herself a victim of a catfisher. No stranger to online dating, Renay didn't see it coming until it was too late, and she'd already lost her heart. Months after the catfisher had faded away, and time had healed the wound, Renay was finally able to grasp the truth behind the encounter. She was in love with the woman in the image she carried around in her back pocket, not the person behind the screen. Her hazel eyes were the same pair she'd seen since childhood, and she was ready to find the woman she knew only as, Susan Walters. The last thing Olga Weber expected her first night at Oktoberfest was to come-to-face with the woman she couldn't live without. Her kindness, humor, and easy going way of making her feel safe drew her to the woman like a moth to a flame. Olga knew the game she played was dangerous, because a woman like Renay could destroy the make-believe life she's worked for years to build. After one chance meeting she could feel the walls of her closet crumbling around her, and she knew her life was about to change…forever. Olga and Renay find themselves falling in love; one woman comfortable with her sexuality, the other uncomfortable in her own skin. A bottle of wine and a sweet, languid kiss told Olga the time had come to decide if Renay was worth fighting for, and if true love could conquer all

Bodice-ripper Becomes Breeches-ripper!
Will a virgin captive surrender to this pirate's sinful touch? "[L]oads of very hot dirty sex in which Nathaniel is a very willing participant.... Just as their relationship is developing, the action kicks in with battles at sea, treachery, daring rescues, heroic actions, and suffice it to say that your swash will be thoroughly buckled, and your timbers definitely shivered!" ~ Gay Book Reviews Nathaniel Bainbridge is used to hiding, whether it's concealing his struggles with reading or his forbidden desire for men. Under the thumb of his controlling father, the governor of Primrose Isle, he's sailing to the fledging colony, where he'll surrender to a respectable marriage for his family's financial gain. Then pirates strike and he's kidnapped for ransom by the Sea Hawk, a legendary villain of the New World. Bitter and jaded, Hawk harbors futile dreams of leaving the sea for a quiet life, but men like him don't deserve peace. He has a score to settle with Nathaniel's father—the very man whose treachery forced him into piracy—and he's sure Nathaniel is just as contemptible. Yet as days pass in close quarters, Nathaniel's feisty spirit and alluring innocence beguile and bewitch. Although Hawk knows he must keep his distance, the desire to teach Nathaniel the pleasure men can share grows uncontrollable. It's not as though Hawk would ever feel anything for him besides lust… Nathaniel realizes the fearsome Sea Hawk's reputation is largely invented, and he sees the lonely man beneath the myth, willingly surrendering to his captor body and soul. As a pirate's prisoner, he is finally free to be his true self. The crew has been promised the ransom Nathaniel will bring, yet as danger mounts and the time nears to give him up, Hawk's biggest battle could be with his own heart.

'bohemia Chills' A Hot Halloween Romantic Comedy
Halloween has become a major (and majorly fun) holiday, and while you're surrounded by ghosts and goblins, it's fun to read romance that gets you in the mood — especially when that romance is a romantic comedy set at Halloween. "Bohemia Chills" is the seventh book in Lucy Lakestone's Bohemia Beach Series of steamy contemporary romances, but it can be read as a standalone. The novel's heroine, Kayla, inherits a purported haunted house from the father she never knew, and the only one who can help her fix it up is her annoying roommate, Landon. Only her roommate turns out to be annoyingly attractive as they strive to unlock the keys to the mansion's mysteries. The mention of "keys" is not a coincidence. "Bohemia Chills" is also a Common Elements Romance Project novel. Writers in a variety of romance subgenres are writing books linked by five common elements dictated by the project, including lost keys, a lightning storm, a stack of books, a character named Max, and a house that may or may not be haunted. And yes, this idea is as fun as it sounds! "Bohemia Chills" is available at Amazon, and the whole series is in Kindle Unlimited for a limited time.
