      A guy. A girl. A Chihuahua. Two of them will find the love of their lives.
      Konigsburg, Book 1

      Coming off a broken engagement to a lying charmer, all bookstore owner Docia Kent wants is a fling, not a long-term romance. And for her fabulously wealthy and fabulously nosy parents to butt out of her life for a while. The Texas Hill Country town of Konigsburg looks like the perfect place to get both. Especially when she gets a look at long, tall country vet Cal Toleffson.

      Cal has other plans for Docia. One glance at the six-foot version of Botticelli's Venus, and he knows he's looking at the woman of his dreams. Now if he can just fend off the eccentric characters of Konigsburg long enough to convince her romance isn't such a bad idea.

      One night of mind-blowing sex isn't the only thing that leaves them both stunned. With Docia's bookstore under attack, Konigsburg suddenly doesn't seem so welcoming. Once again she finds her trust tested--and is left wondering if she was ever meant to have a happily ever, after all.

      Warning: Contains explicit sex, hot Texas nights, cool sarcastic friends, the world's sweetest hero and the world's saddest Chihuahua.

      A passion they never expected...a mystery that could cost them everything.
      Richard and Rose, Book 1

      Rose Golightly is a country girl who thinks her life will continue on its comfortable course, but a series of events changes that for good. On a visit to the ancestral estate of Hareton Abbey, Richard Kerre, Lord Strang, enters her life. A leader of society, a man known for extravagance in dress and life, Richard is her fate. And she is his.

      Richard is to marry a rich, frigid woman in a few weeks, and has deliberately closed his heart to love. Then a coach accident throws his wounded body into Rose's arms.

      With one kiss, Richard and Rose discover in each other the passion they thought they'd never find.

      But the accident that brought them together was an act of sabotage. Somewhere, in the rotting hulk of a once beautiful stately home, a murderer is hiding.

      Richard and Rose set out to solve the mystery, and find the layers of scandal go deeper than simply determining who is guilty. And that doing the right thing could separate them--forever.

      This book has been revised from a previously published edition.

      Warning: This series is addictive. Passion and murder are a potent mix.

      She came to find herself. Instead, she found him.
      Interplanetary League, Book 2

      One would think being sister-in-law to a planetary sovereign would be an advantage. It isn't. Ilexa Dhakir hopes volunteering for a medical exchange program will allow her to use her healing gifts freely. Instead, she finds herself under the watchful eye of her brother's oldest friend, Thane Msaka. The handsome warrior no longer resembles the straight-laced soldier she's known most of her life, but his rampant effect on her libido hasn't changed.

      Having surrendered his military commission and returned to traditional tribal life, Thane's irritation with babysitting duty goes further than trying to protect Ilexa from the havoc she wreaks. He wants her with a ferocity he can't explain, even though he knows he shouldn't.

      When it becomes clear some tribe members will do anything to get rid of her, Thane has to battle people of his blood to protect the woman of his heart.

      Warning: Contains adult language, sexual content and a stubborn, smart-mouthed heroine. As always, reading anything by Liz Craven may be hazardous to your sanity.

      A lesson in seduction that releases lightning in a bottle...
      Call center worker Viola White makes a living selling dream vacations. Too bad her own life is a litany of unfilled fantasies. Prime example--the boss she pines for barely knows she exists. Now that she's won a trip to a Mexican beach resort, though, she vows to shake things up. Instead she winds up alone, empty handed and with a sore toe from the beautiful bottle she's tripped over.

      A bottle that's purple, gold--and stuffed with over six feet of blue-eyed, black-haired hunk. If anyone could teach her how to seduce her boss, it's this sexy genie.

      Jerod can't believe his bad luck. Three thousand years of granting frivolous wishes, and now he's stuck playing matchmaker. A series of sensual lessons later, he finds there's something different about this shy Viola. Something that tempts him to try to break free of his curse and make a life for himself--with her.

      All he has to do is convince Viola that the man of her dreams is a dud. And the right man for the job of loving her is a genie.

      Warning: May cause spontaneous wish fulfillment, eye rolls, and a bad case of the giggles. No bottles were harmed in the writing of this novel.

      Love...or friendship? Does she really have to choose?
      Circle of Friends, Book 1

      Katelyn Rosewood is facing a moral dilemma, one that's six-foot-two, sexy as sin--and her fiancé's best friend. Katie spent a lot of time getting over Tyler Bonnard, but now that he's back in Sydney, he's turning her carefully reconstructed world upside down.

      Her relationship with Steve Sommers may be short on heat and desire, but after Tyler left her two years before, she'll take security and solid friendship over wild passion any day. Except Tyler seems to have a good--if outrageous--explanation for why he's returned.

      After a tragic family secret tore him out of Katie's life, Tyler is glad to be back with his two best friends. But one thing is out of place: Katie's in the wrong man's arms. And if her reaction to his return is any indication, she's not quite over him. Which could mean hope for Tyler, heartbreak for Steve...

      And another devastating loss for Katie, who must choose between the man to whom she's committed her future, and the man who still holds her heart.

      Nitro? Meet glycerin...
      A Biting Love Novel

      Punk musician Nixie Schmeling is a hundred pounds of Attitude who spells authority a-n-c-h-o-r and thinks buying insurance is just one more step toward death. So she really feels played when she's "volunteered" to run the town's first annual fundraising festival. Especially when she finds out it's to pay for a heavy-hitting, suit-wearing lawyer--who's six-feet-plus of black-haired, blue-eyed sex on a stick.

      Attorney Julian Emerson learned centuries ago that the only way to contain his dangerous nature is to stay buttoned up. He's come from Boston to defend the town from a shady group of suits...and an even shadier gang of vampires. But his biggest problem is Nixie, who shreds his self-control.

      Nixie doesn't get why the faphead shyster doesn't understand her. Julian wishes Nixie would speak a known language...like Sanskrit. Even if they manage to foil the bloodthirsty gang, what future is there for a tiny punk rocker and a blue-blooded skyscraper?

      And that's before Nixie finds out Julian's a vampire...

      Warning: Contains more eye-popping sex, ear-popping language and gut-popping laughs than can possibly be good for you. And vampires. Not sippy-neck wimps, but burning beacons of raw sexuality--this means passionate blood-heating, violent bloodletting, and fangy bloodsucking. Oh, and cheese balls. Those things are just scary.

      He destroyed a continent. Dethroned a god. Now her love will destroy him.
      Oathcursed, Book One

      Hilde is shunned for her strange looks and ability to dream the future, both unwelcome gifts of the half-kyrbodan blood that flows in her veins. One of those dreams summons the legendary mage, Ilfayne. Beneath his cynicism and penchant for melting eyeballs, she discovers a tortured man driven by demons as cruel as her own. And the only man who doesn't recoil from her.

      Condemned to four thousand years of loneliness and regret, Ilfayne finds a rare thing in Hilde: a friend. For that, he will do anything to keep her safe. Just as he gathers the courage to reveal the tender feelings he thought he'd lost, her kyrbodan blood forces her to bond with a man of her own race. To deny the bond means she could die. Either way, she is lost to him.

      Now llfayne's oldest enemy has resurfaced, a sorcerer who will stop at nothing to destroy him. Including targeting their greatest vulnerabilities--Ilfayne's hidden love for Hilde, and Hilde's guilt-wracked conscience.

      When the sorcerer makes his move, Hilde holds the lives of two men in her hands--and faces a terrible and deadly choice. Loyalty...or love.

      This book contains a jaded hero, sarcasm, violence, and magic spells involving aggressive turnips.

      Being an aspiring witch is daunting business...
      A Fallen Angels book.

      When Brianna Claxton accidentally summons a demon, she is forced to face her mistake head-on. That becomes problematic when her mistake comes in the form of a hot, ancient demon named Asmodeus who refuses to go back to the hell from which she summoned him.

      Thoughts of revenge have kept him sane...

      Asmodeus is leader of the Rebel Watchers, angels who fell from grace out of lust for human women. He had been subjected to the Abyss, tortured in a virtual Hell in Heaven, until the careless mistake of a human witch released him from the fires. Now faced with temptations of the flesh by the sexy witch who summoned him, he tries convincing himself that embarking on a relationship with Brianna would be a mistake of biblical proportions.

      Two lives hang in the balance...

      Just when things start heating up, four Death Angels give her a mission: Use her powers to kill him...or face the Abyss herself. Gaining his trust is the key--except the closer she gets, the more he reveals the man he is, not the demon she thought him to be.

      Warning: This title contains graphic language, graphic sex, and demons who give a whole new meaning to the old adage sinfully hot.

      Be careful what you ask for. It might come with spurs--and baggage.
      The Paintbrush Series

      After catching her boyfriend with his pants around his knees while a walking, talking cliché takes "dictation", Suzanne Walters quits her job, quits her man, quits Texas and moves to Wyoming to find the woman she used to be. Unfortunately, her first five minutes in Paintbrush finds her facing down the town bully in the local diner--and running smack into the one thing she's not looking for: a wet dream in cowboy boots, Jacob Bowman.

      Jacob excels at two things--flying under the radar, and saving his pennies in hopes of running his own ranch someday. He can't stop thinking about the fantasy in tight Wranglers who nearly mowed him down exiting the diner. The curvy, vivacious spitfire makes his mouth go dry. She's got her eye on him, as well, but her determination to prove her independence is just as strong as the sexual pull between them.

      Life's knocks have given them both strong hearts, and even stronger wills. As danger looms, that stubborn pride could cost their one chance to discover if there's something more between them than great sex.

      Will they swallow their pride, or will they lose it all?

      Warning: Cowboys and horses and bullies OH MY! Sweet, sweet loving and a little rowdy behavior.

      Marking one's territory was never so naughty...
      Wild Oats, Book 2

      Dolan Crane would love to hate the beautiful new veterinarian who's horning in on his territory. It's tough when the flame-haired fantasy come true makes his body burn with just a smile. The smart thing to do is forget about her, so perhaps a threesome arranged by his old college buddy is just what he needs to get her out of his head.

      Divorcee Tracy Marx has followed her restless feet to Santa Ysabel to start a new practice--and maybe find someone to take her outside the boundaries of vanilla sex. Instead she finds trouble in the form of a cowboy whose dark, sexy gaze lights her up--and could also destroy any chance of success. The best thing to do is stay far, far away from him.

      When Dolan shows up for the promised night of fantasy, he's shocked to find Tracy has traded her medical bag for a leather bustier and bondage gear. Tracy would like nothing better than to slap that smirk right off Dolan's face, but the prospect of being sandwiched between two men is impossible to resist--even if one of them is her adversary.

      Besides...no one calls her chicken.

      Warning, this title contains the following: Ride-me-cowboy sex, hot, explicit ménage scenes, light bondage, graphic language, and a heated romp in the hay.

      Immovable object? Meet the irresistible force.
      Paramedic Aaron Chase doesn't have anything against love. It just comes with a lot of responsibility, like when he had to raise his sister and brothers after their drug-addicted mom took off for good. Now that the last one is off to college, Aaron's anticipating enjoying life on his own terms. He certainly wasn't expecting Joey Miller to accidentally drop into his life.

      Joey's sexy, funny and annoyingly optimistic, and his tendency to get into trouble keeps sending him Aaron's way. Even the fact that Joey works for the hated social work system isn't reason enough to keep him out of Aaron's bed.

      Joey knows all about love. He's fallen in it ten times--he thinks. It's not that he can't tell the difference between sex and love. All that experience has to count for something, right? With Aaron it's different. Maybe because there's something to fight for.

      This time Joey's fallen for good. He's not going to let number eleven get away.

      Warning: This love story may overheat readers or the devices used to read it. Explicit male/male sex scenes involving extra penetration, toys, and spanking.

      One of a race of telepathic winged humanoids, Moon is searching desperately for the child stolen from him to be used in barbaric experiments. In Dinun he finds an unexpected ally--and a desire that takes flight. Dinun offers his bravery in the battle to recover the lost Angel infants. Will his heart be strong enough to win Moon's love?

      Captured and condemned to death for trying to save his home planet, Kine Raelne is offered a chance to redeem himself--and to go home, if he's lucky. But it means working with a bunch of Quarnians who have every reason to distrust him.

      Suaj qel Gwan's telepathic ability might mean he has to cooperate with the hated offworlder, but it doesn't mean he has to like it. Yet somehow, through their enforced proximity, Raelne and Suaj find within each other a reason to reach beyond their ingrained prejudice.

Shielding his heart from her determination to become his lover is a different story. But in her irresistible arms, he begins to believe it's worth the risk.

      Then Via discovers why she is the target of Marinuzzi, a murderous Satanist. He wants her newly unleashed psychic gifts for himself, and he'll do anything to convince her to give them up, including trap Via into an impossible choice.

      Family Heirloom Series, Book Two -- Building Love

      "Nuggets of faith can be passed down as family heirlooms from parent to child, sibling to sibling, spouse to spouse."

      As a teenager, Justine Morris's escape from the pressures of caring for her dying father was stolen moments with Joshua Samuels. But their tender, desperate liaison found them facing teen pregnancy. Afraid of their Christian families' responses to the situation, they married quickly and built a life for their child.

      But now that their daughter is ready to fly the nest, Justine can no longer ignore the truth: She and Joshua haven't had a real marriage for a long time. Maybe they never had one at all.

      Joshua is only too aware that his busy, professional attorney wife is an independent woman who never really needed him. After nearly two decades of marriage, he's quit trying to get more than a piece of her at a time. Without their daughter holding them together, he knows the chasm between them will grow to epic proportions.

      Their empty nest looming, they face the hard questions. Had they married in love...or out of a hasty sense of responsibility? Was it God's will for them to be together? And now, is it worth the effort to learn to become one as the Lord intends for a man and a woman...or better to simply let go?

      A part of the Hearts of the South series.

      After two back-to-back romantic disappointments, bar owner Angel Henderson isn't looking for love. In the past month, she's been passed over twice by men she'd pinned her hopes on, both times in favor of a younger woman. She's ready to swear off men for life. The only problem? A certain younger man determined to prove he can be her right man.

      Sheriff's deputy Troy Lee Farr is tired of being the department screw-up. The harder he tries to prove himself, the worse it gets. The only thing that's gone right recently is getting a second chance with Angel. Except she'd rather jam on the brakes than rush into a new relationship. Now he has to work hard to prove his worth as a romantic prospect.

      Troy Lee is a patient man, and it isn't long before Angel is falling into him as hard as he's fallen for her. Just as Angel begins to think of him as more than a fun date, her past--and Troy's dangerous reality--threatens the tentative happiness they've found in one another.

      Reminding them both that security is tenuous...and unconditional love is the biggest challenge of all.
