Good News Day!

Welcome to this week's good news...


Eden Summers has just recently signed her third contract for a Halloween Anthology with Etopia Press. Go Eden!


Maggie Mundy has a short story called Bumble Bee that will be online with Alfiedog.com on September 16th!


Nicole Hurley-Moore's new book, Until The Stars Burn Cold will be released on the 20th Sept. by Pink Petal Books. It's a paranormal/time travel novel.

Forbidden love...
Long ago in ancient Persia, there lived a pair of star crossed lovers. In a desperate bid, the lovers sought to flee the town of Adwan. But they were caught and torn apart.
For his insolence, Jinn is cursed into a ring. Ages pass and empires crumble... and Jinn is still forever bound in a circle of frozen silver. Bound, that is until present day antiques dealer, Mia Templeton accidentally releases him. There is more to Mia than just her beauty... somehow she seems familiar.
Is love eternal and evil everlasting? Can the power that destroyed Jinn's life in Adwan, reach through the centuries and threaten his future?

Mel Teshco has Beneath the Light of a Silver Moon coming out in November with Momentum's Hot Down Under line.

Kristen Treymore isn't living anymore – she's existing.
Trapped in marriage to Jack, an alcoholic who uses his fists to communicate, Kristen has given up her freedom in an attempt to protect his daughter.
When Conrad Doyle, childhood friend and the man whose heart she unwittingly broke, shows up on Kristen's doorstep and offers her a lifeline, she can't refuse.
What she never dreams possible is how much she still wants him—but is that enough to keep them together when terror still beats deep in her heart?

Momentum is the new digital-only imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia and they'll be releasing a series of 13 erotic short stories by new and established Australian romance writers, including some of our Dark Siders - Rhyll Biest, C.T. Green, S.E. Gilchrist, Shona Husk, Kylie Scott and Tracie Sommers (aka Tracey O'Hara).

Shona Husk has just received a cover for Saved by the Trickster, out later this year with Ellora’s Cave! It's an erotic fantasy romance with demi-gods, magic and a fallen Celestial Warrior addicted to ambrosia.

Saving Sara is Angela Castle's latest release from Whiskey Creek Press. It's the 5th book in the Warriors of Kelon series.

Sara, abducted from Earth by cruel aliens, is used as a torture slave and left to die.
Solron, a healer of Kelon, is annoyed at being ordered to go on a cleanup mission to check abandoned enemy war bases. When he and the crew discover a small human woman on the brink of death, Solron manages to save her. But the beautiful little human stirs more within him than his need to heal. Under Solron’s care, Sara falls deeply in love with the alien doctor and he claims her for himself. But when confronted by the Xerson who tortured her, Solron demands a fight with him.
Sara knows she has no choice but to let them fight, but will she now lose the man she loves to the curled Xerson, or will justice at last be served? 


Bitten By Paranormal Romance have reviewed Annie Seaton's paranormal romance, Blind Lust.

A wager between the gods can change your life. Even if you are a witch…
When Venus has a wager with Cupid, that prudish librarian, Lizzy Sweet cannot be enticed to love, she neglects to tell her son that Lizzy is a three hundred year old witch.
The first man Lizzy sees after Cupid shoots his arrow is Josh Deegan, a famous country and western singer who has come to town to rediscover his muse, in an old farmhouse haunted by a culinary ghost.
Local warlock, Wesley Gordon, who has been hitting on Lizzy to no avail for over one hundred years, is not impressed.
The quirky old folk of Silver Valley watch fondly as the battle between love and lust plays out. Leaden and golden arrows zing around, spells are magicked, potions stirred, and ghosts hunted.
Who will fall in love and who will let the other go forever?

Kiss of Steel, Bec McMaster's debut steampunk romance is a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!

"Unique, spellbinding, thrilling and complex are only a few words that can describe this fantastic book. This has to be a must read from paranormal fans and steampunk fans alike. Even historical fans may like it if they enjoy urban fantasy books. I wasn’t sure I would be able to like a book with so many various elements but they come together in such a way that you wonder why this isn’t done more often.
I have to highly recommend this book and wonder when the next in this new series will be out. I think I’ve found another auto buy author!"

Under the Covers has also reviewed Kiss of Steel. A snippet:
"...Blade...has promptly been added to my list of book boyfriends, a very bad boy who has a soft spot for those he considers his family and of course the woman he loves and a tortured past, how was I supposed to resist that? But you can't swing a cat in the romance world and not hit a hero like that, but Blade had that extra something that had me panting, darkly sensual and struggling with inner demons but determined to do right by the people he protected I was doomed to love him."

And Kiss of Steel has also been reviewed at The Romanceaholic:
