Excerpt #1

Spiraling by Rachel Cross

“Am I being played here?”
Shane asked.

“I’m not going to try to take naked photos, if that’s what you’re asking,” Amy said.

He ignored the dig. “Why did you agree to go out with me?”

“You’re hot,” she said, playing with a strand of hair, blinking up at him with her best princess smile.

“I think you’re here with me for the same reason I’m with you.”


“Publicity,” he said.

She stilled. “Is that why you asked me out?”

“My agent encouraged it. He’s in the throes of panic over my image,” he stated.

“He’s the one who set up the . . .” she glanced around furtively, “lessons.”

“I need the lessons, obviously, but he’s trying to kill two birds with one stone here.” Shane said.

So he was using her the same way she was using him. “Why me?”

“You have to ask? Amelia Astor, princess, New England blue-blood. You’re the ideal woman to rehab my image.”

It was the way he said it. As though he would never in a million years be seen with her otherwise.

“And here you are just in time to resuscitate my contract with Enchanted Ice.” Amy raised her glass. “Cheers,” she said, without the slightest bit of pique reflected in her tone.

Goaded, she stretched out a hand and laid it, palm down on his rock hard, jean clad thigh, one finger tracing a pattern on the soft cotton. She leaned in and whispered, “I’m not incorruptible.”

He tilted his head back, and she watched his throat work as he finished his drink in one swallow and scooted closer. “No?”

“It doesn’t have to be fiction, but I don’t do fidelity,” he said as his long fingers tucked a strand of her blonde hair behind her ear and he shot her a half-smile that sent a throb of excitement through her traitorous body.


About Rachel

Fueled by black jelly-beans and Pinot noir, Rachel Cross writes contemporary romance with brave heroines and sexy heroes. She lives in coastal California, with her surfer/pilot husband and two daughters. Her past includes stints as a firefighter, paramedic, clinical manager and Weekly World News tabloid model.



Save My Soul by Elley Arden

Jordon didn’t stop at the end of the cart. He came around and grabbed her by the hips. “We’re done with this conversation. I’m not going to let you push me away because of your misguided notions and over analysis.”

Her mouth opened at his absurd insults. Before she could say a word, his fingers rested on her chin and he closed her jaw.

“Maggie, transference is bull shit. Freud was a flake. You shrinks like to wield power over weak-minded patients. I’m not weak, and I’m not your patient.” He slid his thumb across her bottom lip. “I do…feel exactly the way I said I do, but I won’t say it again until I’m damn sure you’re going to say it back. Until then, keep your shrink wrap away from my head. There’s enough going on in there without you digging around.”

Despite the hypnotic sensation of his thumb stroking her lip, she couldn’t keep quiet anymore. “I find you offensive.”

“No you don’t.”

Jordon leaned his face closer, and she swallowed. Her tongue reflexively brushed over her lip, tasting the tip of his thumb. He stepped into her, and she swallowed again, knowing his mouth would be covering hers in the middle of a busy supermarket. But the minute his arm wound around her waist, she didn’t care where they were. She wanted him to take what he wanted and leave her begging for more.


About Elley

Elley Arden is a proud Pennsylvania girl who drinks wine like it’s water (a slight exaggeration), prefers a night at the ballpark to a night on the town, and believes almond English toffee is the key to happiness.

In line at the bank drive-up ATM today – because it will be faster.

Lady in front of me swipes card, punches numbers, inserts deposit. Waits. Punches numbers. Waits. Swipes Card. Punches numbers. Waits. Pokes at deposit hole with card. Swipes card.

Swipes card. Swipes card. Punches numbers. Waits. Punches numbers. Swipes Card. Deposit hole.

This continues.

Meanwhile, all three teller lines next to me have cleared out. At this point I’m invested.

More swiping and punching.

Really. I need to change lanes. Now there is someone else behind us.

Swiping. Punching.

How long will it last? I’m fascinated by the perseverance.

Finally she gets out of the car!?!  Approaches me!!

“The ATM machine ate my paycheck. I have to go inside.”

She doesn’t move her car.

I finally change lanes.

Then I go to the grocery where there is a small boy with a toy gun and an attitude. This makes me inexplicably happy even though I’m not a fan of war toys and favor gun control.

I begin feel I should get out from behind my computer more.

Cover Reveal! Finding Lost by Deena Remiel

Send to Kindle

I’m thrilled to showcase a new cover from Deena Remiel today!

This sexy thang is Deena’s upcoming romantic suspense FINDING LOST releasing from FATED DESIRES in 2015. How will we stand the wait?
Finding Lost Cover - Romantic Suspense by Deena Remiel


Here’s the Blurb!

How could anyone be miserable in paradise? Carrie Samuels could write a book about it. Far away from her family and friends, she’s fled to Isla Mujéres hoping to escape a relentless stalker who knew how to torment and leave no calling card. What started out as a short-term solution has turned into a long-term jail sentence on a tropical island.

Painfully handsome, with a killer smile and well-hewn body, Dillon McMahon left his past behind and plans to spend the rest of his life off the grid on Isla Mujéres, the perfect place to dig in. Living next door to a sexy, quirky, and mysterious woman makes it all the sweeter.

When Carrie and Dillon’s pasts collide with the present, it threatens their budding relationship and sends them into a maelstrom of danger, abduction, and attempted murder. Sometimes, no matter how far you run, you just can’t hide.
