SYNOPSIS:

Hot shot graphic novelist Sasha Mitchell is learning how to adjust to life as an underground hero with one of the hottest video games on the market. Her newfound wealth is no replacement for her brother’s recent passing, though, and certainly no balm to Doctor David Ellington, who’s adjusting to life without the dominating wealth of his powerful father.

And even though this senator’s son is far more interested in making his mark in the community through the clinic where he volunteers, he still has to overcome decades of enforced emotional barrenness to let Sasha’s powerful character reignite his passion.

SYNOPSIS:
Bethany O’Brien is a 21st-century woman with a career, ambition, and bills. She doesn’t remember how she once felt about a nearly 4,000-year-old genie named Zubis who suddenly invades her world, but he certainly remembers her. In a previous incarnation, Bethany was an important temple priestess who apprenticed to the djinn. Zubis is powerful, alluring, and infuriatingly bemused by Bethany’s skepticism. He once vowed to love her forever and has no plans of breaking his vow. Along with returning glimmers of this past life, Bethany must soon confront a citizenship in shambles, a job in jeopardy, and a mandate from an ancient society to kill the genie of her dreams. Although the priestess she once was had been taught that a romance with a djinni must never be, Bethany gradually realizes that her love for Zubis must never be forgotten. She will risk her citizenship, her job, and her life to save him.

SNEAK PEEK:
Although her heart beat out a rumba in her chest, Bethany fixed a self-assured expression on her face. Two Saudi guards, precise and silent and wearing brown slacks and tan uniform shirts that bore a palm tree above two crossed swords, flanked the entrance to the embassy lobby.

Beneath a pointed archway, two conveyor belts trundled toward two X-ray machines, waiting to swallow and judge each person’s belongings. Two more Saudi guards waved short wands up and down each guest in succession.

While she waited her turn, Bethany peered down a carpeted hallway where the exodus of guests emptied into a cavernous ballroom. Her heart skipped a beat. There he was again, leaning against a fluted Doric column. The crowd flowed around him as though he were the Colossus of Rhodes, watchful and unmoving.

Blood thrummed in Bethany’s ears. Her head buzzed. She fixed her eyes on the man and willed him to turn toward her. As though in response, he cocked his head sideways, revealing his profile.

The planes of his face suggested the marble bust of an Ottoman conqueror, infused with blood.  The long slope of his nose commanded high cheekbones, angular jaw, and strong chin. Tight curls formed an inky corona that fell across his brow. More than his appearance, it was the way he moved, the set of his shoulders, and the wave in his hair that trumpeted recognition. It really was him.

A surge of familiarity blended with fear and washed across Bethany’s midsection. Vaguely aware of her actions, she pressed a hand against her chest in a gesture of astonishment. She felt certain that she had seen him before, but never in reality. Was it possible?

He was the wraith who haunted her dreams of the past several weeks. Irritation mingled with the burgeoning unease. This guy standing before her was the reason for her lack of sleep.

Only the night before, he had pursued her across empty District boulevards into a black cave inexplicably set in the middle of DuPont Circle. He made no sound and his movements were never frantic or threatening, but she ran from him just the same. And when she had reached a wall as hard and unyielding as coal, she turned to face him.

He didn’t reach for her. He didn’t menace her. He simply watched her with an expression that was at once brash, penetrating, bemused, and unrelenting. From the depths of sleep, Bethany struggled to form words, to petition the rogue who plagued her. She wanted to ask him “Why? What do you want?”
But she could only return his gaze, staring wordlessly into impenetrable eyes as golden and alive as a swirling sandstorm.

That morning, she’d awoken sweating and agitated, with a curse on her lips that she’d definitely buy a window air conditioning unit and would definitely make a concerted effort to speak to this meddlesome man of her dreams when he next appeared.

Now, here he was in the flesh. Bethany’s vision framed the man in slow motion as he turned to face her.  He folded his arms against his chest and locked his gaze on hers. A smile spread across his face. Brazen.

Bethany shut her eyes to close him out, then opened them again, as though waking from a dream. He was there. Even across the distance, she knew that his eyes were the color of sand. He watched her as though he had access to that secluded place in her mind which harbored the things only she knew about herself. Her breath caught in her chest.

SYNOPSIS:

For a young married couple, Erin and Gil, the small coastal town of Blackwater Cove is many things. The seaside; their first home; the beginning of a wonderful new life together; Gil’s chance to work alongside his brother Colby on a fishing boat, a job he loves.

But Blackwater Cove isn’t the idyllic paradise Erin and Gil imagine. Their cozy home is haunted by a tragedy of love betrayed and lost.

SNEAK PEEK:
Erin sat with both hands on the wheel, feeling like a first-class dope.
Here she was, doing exactly what she had spent all day promising herself she was not going to do. She wasn’t going to let Beatrice Rodlan’s sad delusions get to her. Wasn’t going to be drawn in by one crazy old lady’s senile ravings. It would be as bad as suddenly starting to believe in ghosts, and thinking that the occasional creaks and thumps and phantom cries in the night really were caused by the restless spirit of Annabelle Darrow.
The house looked just like it always did. Just a house. Her house. Nothing weird or unusual about it at all.Well, all right, so it was a little eerie at this exact moment … the fuming somber-grey sky behind it, the wind-lashed trees dripping with rain, the cloud-filtered rays of the sinking sun making the yellowed-ivory trim seem to glow like polished bone … turning the windows into blind, glassy eyes …

Damn it!

Paul Talbot, Viscount Leed, is set on avoiding the marriage trap.  Though his family has money troubles, he won’t marry an heiress and dance on her leading strings.  He discreetly writes speeches for Parliament, using his words to passionately express others’ opinions.

Lady Michelle Thomas is a spirited heiress, piqued with the rules of Society which dictate that a woman must be seen and not heard.  And if she has opinions on politics or finances?  Well, she had best keep them to herself.  Sparks fly when she meets Paul and she believes she’s found a man interested in more than her face, form and finances.

They wed, but when Paul refuses to take her very generous dowry she’ll do anything to see her money settled on him.  Even if it means going to his rival and putting more than his career in jeopardy.

REVIEWS:

5 stars!!
This is the first I have read from JoMarie DeGioia and won’t be the last. The book grabbed my attention from the first page. I loved how hot Paul and Michelle’s attraction was from the beginning till the end. These two completed each other in every way from their expressions to opinions to their fiery tempers. I loved that every time Paul let his pride get in the way Michelle fought him. Pride and Fire was a great book and a highly recommended favorite from this reader.

SNEAK PEEK:

Paul slowly turned toward the doorway and froze. He watched as, with a swish of her skirts, Michelle Thomas came into the room.

“Lord Kanewood,” she said, pleasure clear on her lovely face. “Rebecca! How have you been?”

Paul could only stare.  She was more beautiful than he remembered. Her fiery red hair was caught up behind her head, rich curls left loose to frame her face. Here eyes, golden brown and fringed by thick lashes, sparkled. And Lord she smelled of Lavender. His senses were so filled with her he barely heard Becca speak.

“Michelle,” Becca said. “How nice to see you again.” She cleared her throat and went on. “I believe you know Lord Leed.”

Michelle turned to face him. Her gorgeous eyes widened and he felt her regard like a caress. He quickly tamped down his response to her.

“Pleasure to see you again Lady Michelle,” he said coolly, bowing to her.

Michelle visibly stiffened and returned a look nearly as cool. She squared her shoulders and dropped a short curtsy, her full lips pressed together.

Becca smiled, drawing her husband’s attention. He leaned toward her. “Becca?”

Paul saw her give him a quick shake of her head to silence him. What was this?…..

AUTHOR BIO

Fleeta Cunningham began writing at the age of eight, but she was telling stories before she was old enough to write them down, much to the dismay of various relatives who found her ‘tall tales’ less than believable. She found an outlet for her active imagination when a high school English teacher took an interest in her stories and class writings and suggested she join the school newspaper and yearbook.  After taking a degree in English Literature from Texas Tech, Fleeta was accepted at the University of Texas where she took a master’s degree in Library and Information Science. She began her career as a law librarian with the State of Texas and later worked with two major law firms in Houston. During those years she wrote a column for her professional newsletter, contributed to a number of publications for the legal industry, and sat on the advisory board of two publishers.

Following her time in the world of litigation, contracts, and torts, Fleeta returned to her home in Central Texas where she taught Enlish and history in a small private school for several years. The urge to write again became too strong to ignore. Since turning her energies to writing full time in 2006, Fleeta has had four books accepted for publication as well as articles and short stories.

A fifth generation Texan, Fleeta Cunningham has lived in a number of small Texas towns. Drawing on all of them, she created the fictional town of Santa Rita and its inhabitants. The Santa Rita Series includes  DON’T CALL ME DARLIN’, BLACK RAIN RISING, ELOPEMENT FOR ONE and HALF PAST MOURNING.  When she isn’t writing, she gives workshops and classes in creative writing. She is a frequent speaker at programs and community events. She also serves as the wedding coordinator for her church and chief housekeeper for her feline roommates.

Against the background of exotic cars and an antique auto museum, she searches for clues. She must learn what happened when Danny walked away from the wedding.
