No matter how far and how fast you run, the truth is never far behind.

CIA counter-terrorism expert Manuel Ramirez has spent the last three years looking for the woman he loves, who disappeared without a trace while on a post-graduate trip to France.

Then, as suddenly as she disappeared, Jules Trehan turns up in a small-town Colorado hospital bed, injured in an explosion that killed her parents. Manny is shocked by the change in the woman he once knew. Kidnapped by a shadowy organization, Jules has been forced to become the very thing he's pledged his life to defeat–a terrorist assassin.

Knowing her testimony will finally bring down the organization, Manny races to get her to Washington, D.C. in one piece. Just when there's a glimmer of hope of overcoming her past, Jules must pull off one last job or Manny's life will be forfeit. It's a mission she must complete…even if it means betraying the only man she has ever loved.

This book was previously published under the name of Sharon Long. It has been revised and rewritten for the 2011 release.

Price: $3.50 Limited time sale-priced for $2.45

Ladies, start your search engines…

The closest Arden Walsh has been to a naked male booty in over a year and a half is a DVD ogling session with her friend Lida's "posse." Not that anyone could blame a widow with two young daughters. At this stage in her life, a relationship is not in the picture. A little hot sex? Definitely.

After another disaster date leaves more than a bad taste in her mouth, she has to admit it. The only man worth black stilettos and red lipstick is the one for whom she once threw caution to the wind, and never since—not even for her husband. Twelve years, and she can still taste the bittersweet memory of Shane Donner.

In a keystroke, a search engine connects the past with the present. As sparks fly from her fingertips to his, she begins to wonder if a screen full of seduction is enough to forge a future.

This title was previously published but has been revised and expanded for Samhain Publishing.

Product Warnings: Contains explicit language, sexual content, not-safe-for-work instant messages, and fantasizing about Keanu Reeves and the hero (but not at the same time!)

When a haughty Lord meets a determined Miss the only winner is love.

Miss Emeline Wilson is a woman on a mission. Forced into penury by the cruel estate manager of the indifferent Lord Stafford, Emeline is determined to confront the new Lord with his callous ways.

Redefining room service…

The Zephyre Corporation's annual convention may be designed to let colleagues kick back in the Florida sun, but Riley McGuire doesn't plan to let anything interfere with her chance to shine for corporate management. Not even the devastatingly sexy guy playing air guitar–naked–in her hotel suite.

Oliver Wilson expected to share a deluxe suite with what he assumed was an amiable Irish-American beer drinker, not an acid-tongued Boston beauty who can't hold her liquor.

Their agreement to muddle through is shot to hell by a tug of attraction that, in the convention's decadent atmosphere, grows too strong to resist. Oliver discovers there's more going on under Riley's suits than good marketing ideas. And Oliver's gentlemanly teasing gets under Riley's skin…in a sexy way.

Behind closed doors, lust explodes between the sheets. But is a pair of vibrating panties a temporary pleasure, or the start of something that doesn't require batteries?

Product Warnings: Please check with your hotel concierge to ask if the handsome naked man playing air guitar comes with the room. There may be an extra surcharge not covered under federal business reimbursement regulations. Be sure to tip the bellboy.

Price: $6.50 Limited time sale-priced for $4.55

He'll bend for them. But they may break over him.

For twelve years, Dom lovers Ryan "Angel" Morgan and Dante James have run a successful photography business, and satisfied their need for a submissive with the occasional sizzling three-way. On a wedding job, they both zero in on the bride's beautiful brother, but as professionals, they keep their attraction on the down-low–for now.
 

Jordan Steele has no trouble establishing mastery over his stallions. When he hires Angel and Dante to shoot promotional photos for his stable, though, there's something about them that calls to his inner submissive. After a little flirtation and a photo session that gets almost too hot to handle, Angel and Dante are happy to show him the ropes. And the whip.

Once they break the ice, their sexual chemistry burns hotter than a macro flash. Everyone gets what they need…until emotions come into play. Their power could develop into something permanent, throw everything off balance–leaving one of them the odd man out.

Product Warnings: Contains lots of sarcasm, a double helping of steamy erotic photography, and two dominants having their way with one very enthusiastic submissive.

The King's Mistress The King's Mistress by Sandy Blair
Genre: Historical
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60928-583-8
Price: $5.50  

The long way home could be the shortest road to ruin.

The king of Scotland is in a snit. Which means Britt MacKinnon, proud captain of the king's guard, has an onerous task: fetch Alexander's favorite paramour back to the royal bed–now. Never mind that the crown should be about the business of getting a legitimate heir. Especially since England's Edward I would love nothing more than to seize an empty Scottish throne.

When the handsome soldier appears on her doorstep, Geneen Armstrong has to think quickly. Her twin lies abed in her cottage, pregnant with the king's bastard. If the barren queen learns the truth, the foolish girl's life won't be worth a farthing.

She must somehow transform her graceless, plain-spoken self into her vivacious, talented sister. Then, after the court is convinced she carries no child, use her herbal knowledge to sour the king's taste for her sister's company–for good.

By the time Britt realizes this unusually articulate, ungodly stubborn woman is the wrong woman, tendrils of attraction have already tightened into a bond. A bond that will be tested when the king's unexpected death puts Scotland's very destiny at stake–and unleashes an ever-tangling web of court intrigues, secrets…and lies.

Product Warnings: Men in kilts, Scottish accents and a feisty heroine contained herein. A more perfect historical romance doesnae exist.

Stomp all over his heart as she walks out the door.

Nate has never forgotten the green-eyed redhead who set his body on fire, the one girl who saw past his bad reputation. The heat of those memories still warms his thoughts, even after all these years. After he did the right thing and let her go, rather than let his love chain her to a town she despised.

Now she's back in Paradise looking sexier than ever, and Nate finds himself powerless to keep his distance. And Charlotte, in spite of her resolve, can't believe she's so easily falling under his spell. Yet mind-blowing sex doesn't bury the past. It unearths painful emotions too long buried. Emotions that could stamp out rekindled love before it catches flame…

Trespass Trespass by Meg Maguire
Genre: Contemporary, Cowboys
Length: Novel, ISBN: 978-1-60928-503-6
Price: $5.50  

He opened his home. She stole his heart…and his money.

Many would envy veterinarian Russ Gray's life in rural Montana's wide-open spaces. Russ calls it lonely. In a country with more cattle than eligible females, he doesn't envision his seven years as a widower ending anytime soon. Until a mysterious woman lands at his door in the dead of night, riddled with buckshot.

Sarah Novak hates lying to such a kind, handsome man, but if an upstanding citizen like Russ finds out why she's been three weeks on the run, he'd surely turn her in. Yet she can't refuse his offer to let her stay until she heals, no questions asked.

From the start they fall into an easy companionship, then teasing flirtation flares into an unexpected intimate connection. But no matter how right it feels in his arms, guilt tugs at Sarah's heart. Russ doesn't deserve what she must do next.

When Russ wakes up with an empty bed–and an empty wallet–his first instinct isn't to call the cops…it's to catch her and find out why his urge to protect her overshadows all reason. Because he's had a taste of real passion, and he's not letting it slip away without a fight.

Price: $3.50 

Cut and run, or stand and fight…the heart knows where to draw the line.

Wolf Town, Book 2

Despite living together in Wolf Town for three months, Scott Lund and Rory MacIntyre share only one piece of common ground. Love. For Rory, life is all about connection–family, his pack, home. But for Scott, connections spell danger–for himself and everyone he cares about.

The bottom line is, Scott has only a small window of time to treasure every moment with his lover. In the not-too-distant future, real life will come knocking and he'll be forced to return to his isolated existence.

Inevitably, a shadow from Scott's past edges too close for comfort. Yet Scott discovers his plan to cut and run isn't as simple as it sounds. Especially when Rory–and everyone else in Wolf Town–seems determined to convince him that holding on will cause a lot less damage than letting go.

Product Warnings: Contains mind control, wolf shifting, skittish lovers, mated lovers–and a happily ever after.

Are blind dates supposed to be this bloody?

A Secret McQueen story

They say it's impossible to find a man in New York City. Secret McQueen needs to find two in one night.

As a werewolf hybrid used to walking a fine line of survival in the vampire world, though, Secret eats impossible for breakfast.

 
Somewhere between hello and the first round of drinks, Secret makes her move. Her target, Hollywood's biggest star, shouldn't be hard to spot. Just look for swarms of fans. Except every time her vampire liaison, Holden, helps keep her mission on track, her date runs further off the rails.

Either Holden has a hidden agenda, or he knows more than he's letting on about her quarry. One way or another, Secret is determined to get her man, and meet Mr. Right. Or die trying.

Price: $3.50

She has two words for love. "Make me." Then love changes the rules…

Unbelievable, Book 3

As far as hairstylist Celia Occam is concerned, she's struck out at marriage twice, and there will be no "third time's a charm". So what if one salon employee and the town gossip seem dead set on fixing her up with Prince Charming. She's nobody's princess.

She's all for scratching the occasional itch with the right man, but flirtatious firefighter Mason Delacroix is all wrong. Besides, with three broken engagements on his romantic rap sheet, even a one-night mattress mambo sounds like a bad idea.

From the first moment Mason encounters Celia's emotional barriers, he's determined to turn up the heat as high as it takes to melt the ice. If the whole town wants to back him up by playing Cupid, he's on board. Track record be damned. He wants Celia, and he's ready for permanent.

When her self-appointed guardian angels conspire to lock them in the basement, their long-denied chemistry explodes. She finds herself relishing every moment–though her subconscious is already on the run.

Funny thing, though. Every time she zigs, Mason's already zagged. Making her wonder if this time it's for real, or if Cupid is just up to its old tricks.

Product Warnings: A hairdresser with a slight fetish for naughty lingerie. A sexy fireman who knows what he wants, which includes having said hairdresser in every possible way. Frontways, backways, sideways…and always.

Muscling Through Muscling Through by JL Merrow
Genre: Contemporary, GLBT, Comedy
Length: Novella, ISBN: 978-1-60928-501-2
Price: $3.50

The bigger they come, the harder they fall… in love.

Cambridge art professor Larry Morton takes one, alcohol-glazed look at the huge, tattooed man looming in a dark alley, and assumes he's done for. Moments later he finds himself disarmed–literally and figuratively. And, the next morning, he can't rest until he offers an apology to the man who turned out to be more gentle than giant.

Larry's intrigued to find there's more to Al Fletcher than meets the eye; he possesses a natural artistic talent that shines through untutored technique. Unfortunately, no one else seems to see the sensitive soul beneath Al's imposing, scarred, undeniably sexy exterior. Least of all Larry's class-conscious family, who would like nothing better than to split up this mismatched pair.

Is it physical? Oh, yes, it's deliciously physical, and so much more–which makes Larry's next task so daunting. Not just convincing his colleagues, friends and family that their relationship is more than skin deep. It's convincing Al.

Product Warnings: Contains comic misunderstandings, misuse of art materials, and unexpected poignancy.

Seattle Steam, Book 3

Allison Siegel is out to stop a wedding. With one of her best childhood friends about to marry a gold-digger, who wouldn't at least try to stage an intervention? Apparently, her other childhood bestie, Clint.
 

The minute Allie grew out of her sneakers and into her curves, Clint's hormones went ballistic. But she had eyes only for Ken, so Clint made himself scarce, even after the relationship fizzled.

Kidnapped! Allison can't believe it. Now she's stuck in the Montana backwoods fending off nature's friends, and fighting a losing battle to resist Clint–the sexiest forest ranger on the planet.

Clint has big plans for Allie. Not only will he convince a city girl that she needs to embrace her inner nature freak, but he's going to prove there's sparks flying in more places than just the campfire.
