Lusting the Enemy by Mel Teshco


Mel Teshco has a cover for Galactic Flame, the third book in the Alien Hunger series from Ellora's Cave. No official blurb or release date yet.

Kylie Scott has also received a cover for COLONIST'S WIFE, her science fiction erotic romance from Ellora's Cave. There's no blurb yet but the tale is about a witness protection/arranged marriage set in space.

It’s the year 2088 and the first off world colonies have been settled as part of the ongoing search for mineral resources. Having testified in a gangland murder trial, nowhere on Earth is safe for Louise. Witness Protection has organized a new identity and a marriage contract for her on the mining colony of Esther, one of the moons circling Jupiter. The man who meets her there, however, is not the groom she expected.
Adam Elliot, her replacement husband, is neither sweet nor sincere. The man looks and smells like he was recently hosed off a barroom floor. But marriage to a despot in the depths of space still beats being tortured to death back on Earth.
An earlier accident in the mine claimed the lives of two men, one of them Louise’s original husband. It also catapulted Adam to the status of hero and shot him to the top of the waiting list of prospective grooms. A veteran of the Continental War fifteen years back, Adam is ready to settle down. Just not with his new wife. The last thing he needs is a princess with an attitude. So he might have had a few drinks too many. Wasn’t that what a buck’s party’s for?

Khloe Wren has contract with Secret Cravings Publishing for Sealed with a Honeyed Kiss: Dragons of Feury Book 1.  It will be part of the Edible Delights Anthology Volume 1, due for release in May 2013. Khloe also designed the cover for this anthology!

The release date for Starburst by Imogene Nix has been brought forward to 15th January 2013 (instead of February).

Meredith Gentry is a woman with a mission.  To decode everything found on the Alpha Star Colony.  Maybe, if she’s lucky, she might finally get closer to the one man who makes her burn.
Chowd Sturat Sur Banden is different.   He’s always known that and that the differences have kept him apart from everyone else.  Until now.
At the end game, will these differences keep Meredith and Chowd apart for good?  Will his own unwanted heritage tear them asunder forever?  And will the crew of the Elector finally prevail over Crick Sur Banden?
The Warriors of the Elector’s cataclysmic conclusion has arrived.

Nicole Murphy, writing as Elizabeth Dunk, has her debut contemporary romance, Arranged to Love, coming out February 1 with Escape Publishing.
Cover not yet available, but here's the blurb: All her life, Madhuri Singh has been sure she’ll make an arranged marriage with an Indian man. But when the opportunity arrives at the same time a past lover returns to her life, Maddie finds herself torn between her culture and her desire.
 All his life, Jack Faulkner has been obsessed with being the one his father chooses to take over the reins of Faulkner Publications. When it seems it’s finally within his grasp, he finds himself face to face with the one woman who can make him forget everything.
 What will win out – the dreams they’ve always held for their futures, or the passion that even after seven years apart cannot be contained. Will they remain blinded to the truth – that they will only be happy if they can be together?
