books she loves to write: romance, adventure and suspense. She started writing
at age thirteen and continues to hone her writing skills to this day. She sold
her first romance novel in 1981. The rest is history.

backbone of her writing—she is credited with writing the first military romance
novel (Captive of Fate, 1983, Silhouette Special Edition) and has created a
thriving sub-genre within the romance field! As a New York Times Best Selling
author, she has sold 23 million books and in 32 foreign languages in her career
thus far. Her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are backdrop for her
understanding of the military in general, and also her very successful Morgan’s
Mercenaries, which is an ongoing series in Silhouette to this day! Forty-five
books strong!
 
Lindsay has gone Indie in 2015 and has created a new family saga
on par with Morgan’s Mercenaries It is known as the DELOS SERIES. There will be
paperback and eBooks created under Blue Turtle Publishing, her company for her
fans. Readers who love Morgan and his family are bound to fall in love with the

Henry is determined to make the only woman who captured his heart his wife.

 

ONLY AN EARL WILL DO
To Marry a Rogue #1
Tamara Gill
Releasing July 25th, 2016
Entangled Select Historical

 

The reigning queen of London
society, Lady Elizabeth Worthingham, has her future set out for her. Marry
well, and marry without love. An easy promise to make and one she owed her
family after her near ruinous past that threatened them all. And the rakish
scoundrel Henry Andrews, Earl of Muir whose inability to act a gentleman when
she needed one most would one day pay for his treachery.
Returning to England after three
years abroad, Henry is determined to make the only woman who captured his heart
his wife. But the icy reception he receives from Elizabeth is colder than his
home in the Scottish highlands. As past hurts surface and deception runs as
thick as blood, so too does a love that will overcome all obstacles, unless a
nameless foe, determined with his own path, gets his way and their love never
sees the light of day…

You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure.

Yet
pleasure seems to be the one and only thing on Charlize’s mind the moment
Connor steamrolls into her life. Desperate to save her family company, prove
she’s more than a pretty face and worthy of being CEO, pleasure is a
distraction she can’t afford.

libido into hyperdrive. Surrounded by enemies, she’s not sure if Connor is a
man she can trust.

Connor
knows better than to get personal with clients. Yet there couldn’t be anything
more personal about his feelings for Charlize. He’ll win her trust, preferably
one orgasm at a time.

With
Connor in her office, her home, driving her to sweet, merciless distraction,
there’s only so long Charlize can resist his sexy, dominant brand of protection.

Miss Lucinda Parnell is out of money. A dismal failure at the Marriage Mart, she’d
just as soon leave Society far behind. Desperate to earn funds to retire with
her grandmother to the country, Lucy disguises herself as a man to gamble in
London’s hells. But the Earl of Dartford, an Untouchable she never imagined
speaking to let alone spending time with, is onto her in a trice. When he
insists on acting as her protector, Lucy fears her chance to remain an
independent woman is destined to go up in flames.
 
After losing his entire family, Andrew Wentworth, Earl of Dartford built a wall
to keep attachments at bay. He believed he could keep Miss Parnell safe without
compromising his defenses, but she’s exciting and irresistible. Their deepening
relationship makes him even more determined to push her away. Nothing will stop
him from trying to avoid reliving the anguish of loss. Love is the one risk he
doesn’t have the heart to dare.

Yes, let’s be direct with one another, shall we?”

Lucy blinked at him. “I am always direct.”

Unless you’re trying to fool people into thinking you’re a man.” His sarcasm was simultaneously annoying and charming.

Yes, that. A necessary transgression, I’m sure you agree.”

His brow arched. “I hardly think you care whether I agree.”

He had her there. She grinned. “Maybe a little. I mean, I do care. A little.” She’d come to like Dartford during their brief acquaintance, in spite of his moments of arrogance and imperiousness. She looked forward to another adventure or two with him. “You have my word that I won’t venture out without your assistance. Shall we set our next appointment?”

His eyes widened briefly. He seemed a bit surprised at the ease with which she’d agreed. “Excellent. Tell me when, and I’ll meet you as I did tonight.”

Four nights hence, at half past eleven.”

The hackney drew to a halt on Bolton Street, but not in front of her house. They stepped out of the cab, and Dartford paid the coachman.

With her house in sight, weariness seeped into Lucy’s frame. She longed to pluck all the padding from her body and scrub her face clean after discarding the fake sideburns.

Dartford walked with her toward the house. “What would your grandmother say if she knew you were doing this?”

Lucy suffered a pang of guilt. “She’d be horrified.”

What does she think you’re going to do once she retires?”

They’d reached her house. Lucy stopped and turned toward him. “She expects me to marry.”

And is that a possibility?” he asked. Shadows played across his face, but she could see his eyes clearly. They were dark, intelligent, often filled with humor. His cheekbones gave definition, while his chin, square with a slight cleft, provided character. He bore an appealing countenance. No, that wasn’t at all fair. He was exceptionally handsome. And an earl. Precisely the kind of man her grandmother had hoped she would marry but who’d consistently ignored her the past five years. An Untouchable.

She tamped down a scowl, suddenly annoyed anew at her predicament, which was silly since she’d abandoned the idea of marriage. A choice she didn’t regret in the slightest.

She gestured to her costume and the sideburns stuck to her face, currently making her itch. “Would I be doing this if it were?”

He shrugged. “Perhaps it is possible, but you don’t wish to marry, so you choose this instead.”

That actually summed up her current attitude quite accurately. She would choose this over marriage. “As it happens, Idon’t wish to marry.”

Indeed?” He cocked his head to the side. “How surprising. We are alike, then, because I don’t wish to marry either. Some distant cousin will need to inherit the title.”

She wanted to ask why but didn’t. That would encourage him to ask her the same, and she had no intention of explaining that to him. Besides, it was best if they didn’t become too…close. This was a necessary partnership, but they weren’t going to be lifelong friends.

Are those comfortable?” He reached out with his fingertips and brushed the sideburn glued along her right jawline.

She ignored the frisson of delight that sparked down her neck. “Not particularly. In fact, I’d like a few days to recover from wearing them.”

I should like to see you without them.” His dark gaze penetrated through her carefully constructed wall, and his deep voice shot straight into her chest, stirring the inconvenient attraction she felt toward him.

Her breath caught. “I doubt you ever will.”

His mouth ticked up in a half smile. “Don’t tease me. Please. Not when I’ve been so helpful. Think of all you won tonight.”

All she’d won. It wasn’t just the money. Not to her. She’d won respect with her shooting, even if she couldn’t tell them she was a woman.

She took a step back, determined to put space between herself and this suddenly dangerous man. “I appreciate your help, but I won’t share credit for my winnings. They are mine alone.”

He gave a slight bow. “My apologies,” he murmured.

I’ll see you in a few days.” She turned from him.

Not if I see you first,” he said.

Harborside Nights #1
Melissa Foster
Released April 2015
World Literary Press
Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that
instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be
dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one
to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside,
Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his
parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.
Six foot two, infuriatingly
handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy,
helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her
insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t
it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would
accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin
seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all
along?
It’s impossible to ignore the
sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy
knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a
sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his
life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the
one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.

Pre-Release Blast :: LOVE BETWEEN THE COVERS

 

Love Between the Covers
A Documentary Film
Written, Produced & Directed by: Laurie Kahn
Releasing July 12th, 2016
Distributed by: The Orchard
 

Love
stories are universal. Love stories are powerful.  And so are the women who write them.
Love Between the Covers is the fascinating
story of the vast, funny, and savvy female community that has built a
powerhouse industry sharing love stories.
Romance fiction is sold in 34 languages on six continents, and the genre
grosses more than a billion dollars a year — outselling mystery, sci-fi, and
fantasy combined.  Yet the millions of
voracious women (and sometimes men) who read, write, and love romance novels
have remained oddly invisible. Until now.
For
three years, we follow the lives of five very diverse published romance authors
and one unpublished newbie as they build their businesses, find and lose loved
ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing, and earn a living doing what
they love—while empowering others to do the same. Romance authors have built a
fandom unlike all others, a global sisterhood where authors know their readers
personally and help them become writers themselves. During the three years
we’ve been shooting Love Between the
Covers
, we have witnessed the biggest power shift that has taken place in
the publishing industry over the last 200 years. And it’s the romance authors
who are on the front lines, pioneering new ways to survive and build
communities in this rapidly changing environment.

Marydale didn’t intend to hide her

My wife recently dubbed my writing “so-ro,” short for romance with a social conscience. I guess that’s what I do. Whether I’m exploring the problems of gentrification or the evils of human trafficking, every book I write has a lesbian romance at its heart and a social issue in mind. They’re the kind of books that read like
fun, lazy-Saturday page-turners and yet leave your unexpectedly enlightened.
That’s two for the price of one and way more fun that keeping up with the news.
 
When I’m not writing, I’m being inspired by my amazing community college students and hanging out with my lovely wife and my charming spuglette (that’s a technical
term for spaniel-pug mix). I’m a fan of snakes, corn mazes, popular science
books on neurology, and any roadside attraction that purports to have the
world’s largest ball of twine.
