ELOISA JAMES bio: A reviewer from USA Today wrote that she “found herself devouring [Eloisa's] book like a dieter with a Hershey bar”; People Magazine raved that “romance writing does not get much better than this.” Eloisa wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got a couple more degrees and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. Over twenty best-sellers later, she teaches Shakespeare in the English Department at Fordham University in New York City. She’s also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.

BLURB:

On the heels of tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to posses her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?

ABOUT CARLIE:

I have always been a sucker for a good love story, especially with angst. I have read most of Nicholas Spark’s books for this very reason. I had no idea that I would be writing a book let alone three a year ago. My books are a work of fiction with some real events that happened to me woven in.

I began writing Fallen for You in October 2012 after I had the pleasure of meeting a well-known indie author who inspired me to push forward and complete my story. At the time, I thought Fallen for You was just going to be one book, but it has blossomed into three books. Taken by You and book 3 Given to You complete The Killer Next Door series. I wove real life and fiction together to create the series.

My latest release, Beholden is a stand-alone, but a spin-off of characters from my trilogy. It has been amazing to bring characters to life and watch them grow on the pages of my manuscript.

I have several more books in mind that I want to bring to life.

I am a second grade teacher  in my 9th year. Teaching has been so rewarding because I get to impart my love for reading onto my students. There’s nothing better than seeing a child’s face light up when they are reading a great book.

I currently reside in Southern California with my loving husband and two dogs. We enjoy the lifestyle that California has to offer and spend time at the beach and in the mountains.

PUBLISHER: Avon http://www.avonromance.com/

SYNOPSIS:
Once upon a time…

A duke fell in love

Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.

With a lady

Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.

And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be,
she pretends.

In a tower.

But Edie’s inability to hide her feelings makes pretending impossible, and when their marriage implodes, she retreats to a tower—locking Gowan out.

Now Gowan faces his greatest challenge. Neither commands nor reason work with his spirited young bride. How can he convince her to give him the keys to the tower…

When she already has the keys to his heart?

She’s spent her life avoiding love.

Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O’Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie’s path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming.

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O’Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.
Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?

AUTHOR BIO:
I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10 on my grandmother’s manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature. During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the genre. I have been writing contemporary romance ever since.

Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I have a free moment you’ll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story

SYNOPSIS:

Baseball reporter Maddie Leclair has spent years chasing her dream job—covering the major league team, the Philadelphia Patriots. Now that she’s landed the assignment she intends to make it big, with feature articles on the front page of every sports section in the country. But to do that, she needs to score an interview with the most private and elusive athlete in baseball, Patriots’ superstar Jake Miller.

On the rebound from a devastating injury that knocked him out of play for a season, Jake has a lot to prove to the suits in the front office. He’s sure he still has what it takes to win, and he’ll be damned if he lets anything get in the way of his climb back to the top.

The last thing Jake needs is a pushy female reporter distracting him. But one look at Maddie and he knows he’s in trouble. He finds himself trying for a different kind of play, one that involves bedrooms and not baseball stats. Sleeping together could damage both their careers, and Maddie is all about saying no. But when it comes to the game of love, Jake is playing to win.

FASTBALL is a prequel to HARDBALL by V.K. Sykes http://tinyurl.com/7axdcze

AUTHOR BIO:  V.K. Sykes is really two people – Vanessa Kelly and Randy Sykes, a husband and wife team who write sexy contemporary romance. Randy excels at plot and characterization, but tends to fall down on the job when it comes to that pesky old thing called emotion. That’s where Vanessa steps in. She usually writes the sex scenes, too, since Randy is a bit uncomfortable when it comes to that sort of stuff. Vanessa also writes Regency-set historical romance for Kensington Zebra under her own name.

He’ll do anything to save her…

Rebel Lord Drystan Hawkes dreams of fighting for England’s freedom. He gets his chance when he finds a clue to opening the magic portal to Elfhame, and he must race to find the slave girl who holds the key to the mystery.

SNEAK PEEK:

Seeing Alexander that close to Cora made Nick’s skin crawl. He didn’t waste any pleasantries on the man. “Did Jerry find the money so soon?” Alexander snorted. “Hardly.”

“So, what’s the news?”

“He still claims someone else stole it, he’s investigating. My guess is he’ll get himself killed.”

Nick kept a straight face and resisted the urge to punch the cabin wall next to him, when he really wanted to hit Alexander in that straight, pointed nose of his.

“Did I ruin your plans by showing up?” Alexander’s mouth twisted. “Don’t bother pretending you’re not trying to get her in bed.”

Nick’s blood boiled hotter at Alexander’s crude words.

“I’m just doing what my father needs me to.” Nick forced his tensed shoulders to relax and folded his arms across his chest, hoping to avoid further conflict with a less defensive stance. “Keith wants her up here for a while, so this is where we’re staying.”

“I don’t buy it, and I don’t know why Keith does.” Alexander wanted a fight, Nick thought, and a reason to grab Cora and take off with her.
Nick shrugged, deciding it best not to goad Alexander.

“Keith doesn’t need a lawyer around,” Alexander said. “You know that, don’t you? You walked away and you’re not getting back in.”

“Don’t be so sure. Maybe a lawyer in the family could do some good.”

Alexander was so stunned, he took a step backwards. Nick mentally kicked himself for giving Alexander another reason to keep a close watch on them.

“What do you want with her? Why did you really get her involved?” The other man laughed, “You know it was the only way to get Jerry to find the money without going to the police. We can’t let information like this get out to the press.”

AUTHOR BIO:

What if everything you knew about yourself turned out to be a lie? What if the soulmate you were waiting for came from a completely unexpected world—and was threatened by your own world?

One day several years ago, sitting in the kitchen of her family’s summer home in Westerly, Rhode Island, Sara Humphreys began writing this tale. It was the beginning of the Amoveo Legend.

Since her adolescence, Sara has been drawn to the fantasies of science fiction, paranormal universes and romance (these worlds collided with her crush on Captain Kirk). From that time she has been enthralled with the process of self -discovery—and the possibility of actually finding that one true partner in life.

Sara secured work on such shows as A&E Biography, Guiding Light, Another World, As the World Turns and Rescue Me. She then became a drama teacher at her alma mater, Convent of the Sacred Heart, and quickly launched her own kids’ after-school theatre workshop studio called Ensemble Productions. The first semester drew over 40 students, and by the third there were 130. Her passions were being satisfied in way a she never dreamed, all while pregnant with her second child. However, when her 2-year-old son was diagnosed with diabetes Sara quickly decided to shut down the business and pay full attention to his needs.

Several years later Sara gave birth to twins—the house was full to the brim. In 2001, to support family finances, she found a speaker position with Monster’s Making It Count and used her acting talents to deliver presentations in high schools across the U.S. Recognized for her teaching abilities, she also fulfilled the role as speaker trainer until 2008. Simultaneously, Sara began speaking for The College of Westchester and now serves as Director of High School & Community Relations.

Today, at night, when the kids are asleep and the house lies quiet, Sara does what most moms dream of—she’s “bringing her sexy back” with the Amoveo Legend series. Each book blossoms with the journey of a new coupling, and the characters seem to take control of the story as they weave in and out of society—in a constant state of self-discovery in the search for true love.

Sara lives in New York with her husband of 17 years, their four amazing boys, two dogs, and an extremely loud bird. Life is always busy, but never dull.

SNEAK PEAK:

“Samantha,” he whispered in his dark silky voice. Sam’s skin tingled deliciously with just one word from him. A smile played at her lips as she waited for him to call her again. Her silent prayer was answered as he murmured her name. “Samantha.” That same delightful rush washed over her like the warm waves that rippled by her feet. She stretched languidly on the sandy beach, and her eyes fluttered open. She was home.

She sat up and glanced at the familiar seashore of her childhood home. Sam knew it was only a dream. It had become a familiar one. The ocean glowed with unnatural shades of blue as if it was lit from beneath. The sky swirled with clouds of lilac and lavender. She stood up and relished the way the soft, pebble-free sand felt on her bare feet. A gentle breeze blew Sam’s golden hair off her naked shoulders, and her long white nightgown fluttered lightly over her legs.

She closed her eyes and breathed in the salty air. He was near. She could feel it. Her blood hummed, and the air around her thickened. She’d come so close to seeing him many times, but she always woke up just before she found him.

Not this time.

This time she would stay on the beach and call him to her. It was her dream after all, and she was getting tired of coming up empty-handed. Eyes closed, she tilted her face to the watercolor sky and waited. Her heartbeat thundered in her ears in perfect time with the pounding waves.

“Samantha,” he whispered into her ear. She stilled, and her mouth went dry. He was standing right behind her. How the hell did he get there?
