Despite a wonderful family, a career she loves, and great friends, a void has existed in Lauren McDonald's life ever since her best friend, Callie, married billionaire Dylan Talbot. Although they have remained close, Lauren and Callie now lead very different lives. When Lauren meets wealthy CEO Kevin Walsh, she believes he could be the man to make her life whole again.  That is until the night Nathaniel Callahan, her high school sweetheart and the one man she has always loved, shows up. 

Fifteen years ago Nate ended things with Lauren before heading off to the Naval Academy and his life with the Marines, but he never stopped loving her. Now he's home to correct the mistake he made all those years ago. 

Who will win her heart:  the man who can promise her the world or the man who has the power to crush her heart again?

A warship is no place for a human mother and her child. However, Drakan Commander Alzaar and his second-in-command, Bentaan, have no choice but to bring Sapphyre and Jayde on board. Not least, because their instincts scream at them that she is the one woman who can turn them into a family again.      

Sapphyre just wants to keep her daughter safe. How on earth does she do that surrounded by droolworthy Aliens, when her libido keeps leading her astray? It is abundantly clear that Alzaar doesn't want her on board the ship. At least Bentaan does and the sex is out of this world. If only her heart wasn't involved, and she didn't want both of them.

When the Tamarillion is attacked, Sapphyre has to fight for her men and the ship she now calls home. Without her all would be lost, and Alzaar finally shows his emotions.

However, when regulations and their pasts collide, can they rescue each other?

My friend, Jordyn had said there are two kinds of men: the gentle surf and the tidal wave. I knew exactly what she meant. The gentle surf is safe and steady. It lazily rocks boats on breezy days and placidly laps against the shore on cool nights. It’s relaxing, comforting, and lulls you to sleep.

There’s nothing steady or relaxing about a tidal wave. There is no easy float, no predictable crest. It’s wild and exhilarating. It rips through your resistance, crashes up against your heart, and leaves you breathless.

Yet it can also crush you under its power, and you won’t even see the destruction coming until you’re drowning in it.

Micah Peters was my tidal wave.

Years later, Deeana Chase has finally picked up the pieces of her shattered heart and built a new life for herself as a child advocacy lawyer. Her food addiction is quasi under control, her secrets are buried, and she has even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body. Until, Micah Peters—the very sexy and now famous man she fled— walks through her office door and sends Dee reeling. Forced to face the past, these former lovers get more than they bargained for—a searing passion that burns hotter than ever and startling revelations about what really happened the fateful night she left.

The Favourite Heiress…
Once engaged to the future Duke of Strathmore, the beautiful Lady Clarice Langham now finds herself in the humiliating position of celebrating his marriage – to another woman.  As a result of the scandal, it seems her reign as London's most eligible debutante has come to an end.  But things begin to look up when handsome and charming rake David Radley makes it clear that, at least as far as he's concerned, she's still the catch of the season.
The Illegitimate Son…
The eldest son of the Duke of Strathmore, David Radley has been raised alongside his father's legitimate children.  But while he is generally received as part of the family, not everyone thinks he should be, and especially not Clarice's father, the Earl of Langham, who forbids her from having anything to do with him.
An Unsuitable Match…
David's been in love with Clarice for years, and it isn't long before the attraction between them develops into something deeper. Yet he senses Clarice is hiding something and until she reveals her secret, she won't be free to follow her heart. Despite everything, David will not give up on Clarice, not even when another seems set to claim her…

Steampunk Journal Giveaway!

I wanted to do something a bit different as a giveaway, so I took myself to the genius crafter who has customized journals for me before and asked for another steampunk creation. The clasp on the front is magnetic and finished with a radio tube. There are other found objects, including parts of old London maps, keyholes, and more intriguing pieces. The insides of the covers are decorated as well as the front and back, and there is also a bookmark included. (see the link below for more pictures)

For those of you wondering, this prize is open to everyone, and I will ship it internationally. How to win this treasure? Leave a comment below and tell me something about how you bring steampunk into your world–reading? music? costume? or something else wonderful and quirky? Or, are you just discovering it, because that counts, too! I know there are readers for whom the Baskerville Affair was their first venture into the genre. Tell me about it and you’re entered in the draw. Contest closes at the end of the month.
