LETHAL CONFESSIONS NOW ON FREE!!

LethalConfessions_final_600x933

Lethal Confessions, the romantic suspense I co-wrote with my hubby as VK Sykes, is now FREE on Amazon through Nov. 4!  I really love this book–the heroine is a tough but emotionally wounded detective, out to capture a vicious serial killer and find some closure after the murder of her twin sister.  And the hero is pretty yummy, if I do say so myself, a former Marine turned pro athlete.  Together, they set off some pretty great sparks!

You can download Lethal Confessions here.  It’s also available in print and will be for sale on B & N, Kobo, iBooks, and Smashwords in December.  You can read an excerpt on our VK Sykes website.

Have a great weekend!


Dark And Dangerous Now On Sale For Only 99 Cents!

Dark

Boy, have I got a great deal for you today!  Three stories by fellow Rock*It Reads authors Bonnie Vanak, Laurie London, and Erin Kellison are featured in a new paranormal romance anthology that also includes other fantastic authors like USA Today Bestseller Jennifer Ashley.  Even more exciting, this collection is now on sale for ONLY 99 cents!  Trust me – I’ve already downloaded my own copy.

Here are some of the stories included in this anthology:

THE MATING HUNT by Bonnie Vanak
After a childhood trauma left Arianna Sanders terrified of sex, the only man the pretty Lupine werewolf desires is her fiercely protective guardian. But the sexy, mysterious shifter harbors a dark secret, one he’s determined to hide from Arianna.

Kyle Morgan hungers for the voluptuous Arianna and dreams of consummating the passion smoldering between them. When he’s forced into mating with her to save her life, he must tame the savage, sexual beast inside him before taking the virgin he’s vowed to protect from those hungering to claim her, including himself…

ASSASSIN’S TOUCH by Laurie London
Two worlds. Two enemies. One fated touch.

Former fashion designer Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities–now she’s the army’s hottest asset in their fight against invaders. Rickert D’Angelus, the dangerously sexy assassin from Cascadia, leads a group of warriors into New Seattle to stop enemy soldiers from finding the Iron Portal into his world.

When he captures the beautiful Protection-Talent, a passionate vision appears and stirs something deep inside him. Rickert must decide if it’s a Talent trick, designed to foil the enemy…or the answer to his deepest desires.

SHADOW BOUND by Erin Kellison
Dark fantasy meets modern fairy tale…

Adam Thorne founded the Segue Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow. Twilight is the place between life and what comes after–a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.

HARD MATED by Jennifer Ashley
Spike, a wildcat Shifter and the champion fighter of Shiftertown, is stunned when Myka, the best friend of a dying human woman, announces that Spike has fathered a cub. What’s more, the mother is giving the boy to Spike to protect and raise.

Spike is torn between the cub and his duties as tracker to the Shiftertown leader, and begs sassy and sexy horse-training Myka, the only person who understands, to help him. When Spike’s job puts his cub and Myka in danger, Spike is forced to choose between those to whom he’s pledged his loyalty and his need to protect the woman and cub he’s come to love.

Book 1: Love’s Revenge
Firmly on the shelf at forty-one. Sophie accepts her life of servitude until she impulsively uses her father’s criminal activities to escape. But she never expected the Devil of Devlyn to accept her rash proposal, and she certainly hadn’t planned on falling in love with a younger man.

When Sophie Hamilton, the eldest daughter of his worst enemy shows up on the Earl of Devlyn’s doorstep with an unexpected offer, Devlyn seizes the chance for vengeance. What he doesn’t bargain on is how revenge could cost him the one thing he wants the most. Sophie’s love.

Book 2: Love’s Portrait
When Julia Westgard commissions a nude portrait of herself, the painting is much more than a rebellious act. It’s an attempt to regain her self-worth after years of a loveless, repressive marriage to her late husband. But the private portrait puts her directly in the path of Morgan St. Claire. A man who doesn’t take no for an answer.

From the moment Morgan sees Julia’s portrait, he’s determined to have her. But the woman he meets is a far cry from the image on canvas. What starts out as a simple exercise in seduction quickly evolves into a quest to reveal the true Julia. With each sensual encounter, he employs every weapon at his disposal in hopes of making Julia see she really is the woman in Love’s Portrait.

Seriously, folks, these are two wonderful books so hop on over to Amazon or B & N and pick up the boxed set.  Oh, and Monica will also be running a facebook party all week to celebrate the special so drop by and visit her!

Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Hot Summer Reads Giveaway Hop, sponsored by the Insatiable Reads Book Tour.  There are over 100 bloggers and authors participating in the hop, and each is offering a giveaway on her blog.  And there are two Grand Prize, too:

– a Kindle Fire

– $50 Amazon gift certificate

Nice, eh?  But it’s not all about the prizes, is it?  It’s about the books, too–all those wonderful reads that can steam up your summer and make it a whole lot of fun!  And what better for a hot read than the Boys of Summer, themselves?

In addition to my historical romances, I write contemporary romance with my husband as V.K. Sykes.  As you can imagine, writing romance with hubby leads to some interesting developments–plot developments, that is.  You see, hubby is something of a baseball fanatic, so he thought it would be fun to write a series centered around the players of a pro ball team.  Thus, The Philadelphia Patriots were born.

Our USA Today Bestselling series features classic alpha male athletes as heroes, and the women who tame them.  These guys are smart, sexy, and very hot, as our heroines find out sooner rather than later!  Here’s the blurb for our latest book in the series, Curveball:

Taylor Page has never wanted anything but a career in major league baseball. Through talent and guts, she’s finally landed a position as Assistant General Manager of the Philadelphia Patriots. The only problem is that most men in baseball still don’t take a woman exec seriously, so she needs to do something big to convince her bosses she has what it takes to run a team.

Veteran Pittsburgh outfielder Ryan Locke’s career is in jeopardy when a suddenly unreliable throwing arm comes on top of rehab from a major injury. A single parent with a troubled daughter and an alcoholic mother to provide for, retirement is out of the question.

When Taylor needs a replacement for an injured first baseman, she comes up with a risky idea: convince her boss to make a trade for Ryan Locke, and then convince the still talented slugger to play first base for the Patriots. With Ryan dead-set against that plan and both their careers on the line, neither Taylor nor Ryan can afford the explosive physical attraction between them. But despite Taylor’s best efforts to resist Ryan’s campaign of seduction, she’s not sure she’s got the willpower to keep from playing along.

You can read an excerpt from Curveball and my other contemporary romances on my V.K. Sykes website.

For my visitors to the blog today, I’ll be giving away a copy of my Philadelphia Patriots 3 Book Box Set, plus a $10 Amazon gift card.  Just tell me what hot summer reads you’ve got lined up for a chance to win!
