Good News Day!

Welcome to this week's good news...





BOOK COVERS & RELEASE DATES

Denise Rosetti's novella, Rubies and Black Velvet, will be released today as an especial from Berkley Heat. (Previously published in Unlaced.)

A positively combustible novella of magic and erotic adventure — as dangerous as it’s desirable.
It was a deceptively beautiful corset trimmed with heartsblood rubies, but fashioned by the vengeful spirit of a dark sorceress, a vixen of the dark forever. Once the black laces tighten around the vulnerable Meggie, so does the grip of a terrible curse. Now trapped in an erotic dance of domination and submission, as both cruel mistress and helpless slave, Meggie must do everything in her power to resist the corset’s hypnotic pull, or she could destroy the only man she ever loved.

The Scientist, Book 2 in The Protectors series, by Carolyn Wren was released this week (29th January) through Sweet Cravings Publishing.

A charismatic covert operative known for his love of danger…
Simon Winters has a reputation for undertaking adrenalin filled assignments.  But even thrill seekers need some down time. After an arduous desert mission, he asks for a more enjoyable assignment.  Preferably involving a beautiful woman in peril and a fast car.
Dr. Elizabeth Barrett’s life is quiet and orderly until someone tries to burn down her research laboratory with her inside.  Now she has to contend with a handsome flirtatious agent living in her home. With his designer clothing and cheeky attitude, he has an annoying habit of putting her in more perilous situations than he keeps her out of.
Simon is captivated and intrigued by his beautiful scientist with her red hair and hidden fiery temper. But the danger escalates, and what begins as a straightforward mission turns deadly when it seems someone wants Beth, and her research, dead.



Episode One of Dark Child, the new serialised e-book by Adina West was released February 1st, 2013, from Momentum.

Kat can run a marathon without breaking a sweat. Catch anything you throw at her. Differentiate blood types by smell alone. And she’s spent years hiding the fact. But secrets from the past have a way of slipping out when least expected ... and a simple blood test is enough to turn her quiet life in the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains upside down forever ...
Pathology technician Kat Chanter isn’t looking for trouble. On a good day, the most exciting thing in her life is the iridescent violet nail varnish on her housemate Tiffany’s manicured fingers. But lately, Kat’s been craving raw meat, and her dreams – always weird – are getting so realistic it’s scary. When she visits a psychic she's told her life is about to change forever. Kat isn't so sure change is a part of her plan, but a blood test at work raises more questions about her unique heritage she has no idea how to answer, so when a fabulous job offer comes her way – one that will give her the chance to research others just like her – she's tempted to say yes and make the move to New York.
Will her dream job bring answers to all her questions or will it lead her into more trouble than she could ever imagine?



Kylie Scott's latest release, Skin, is on shelves now. It came out February 1st with Momentum.
Six months since the zombie plague struck, former librarian Roslyn Stewart has been holed up in a school with eight other survivors. But now the shelves in the school canteen are bare. The stranger at the gate has supplies that will ensure the group’s ongoing survival, but at a cost. He wants a woman.
Nick is a man with a plan. He’ll treat Roslyn like a Queen, devoting the rest of his life to protecting and providing for her. In exchange, of course, for sexual favours. It’s the deal of the century given the state of the world. But Roslyn doesn’t see it that way. The first chance she gets she attacks the ex-army man and attempts to escape, forcing Nick to contain her. And so begins his awkward courtship of the woman, with her chained to the bed for security reasons.
Chained like a dog and forced to spend her every waking moment with a creep, albeit a good looking one, Ros is determined to escape. When circumstances force them to band together against a common enemy their very survival depends on their ability to learn to trust each other. An uneasy partnership develops, but can a relationship with such a difficult beginning ever have a future?
The hotly anticipated sequel to Flesh, Skin is set in the same universe with a different set of characters.
