Guest Author: COME AWAY WITH ME by Ruth Cardello

One of my favorite authors, Ruth Cardello, is launching a new series. Book 1 has just released so I wanted to feature it on my blog for those of you who love Ruthie's books too. It looks really good. Isn't the cover sexy? The excerpt made me laugh which is my favorite lure into a book's story.

Book 1 of The Andrades

Gio Andrade:  Rich, powerful, sexy. A man who thinks he has everything . . . until he meets Julia.

Julia Bennett:  Sweet, spontaneous, and desperate to sell her jewelry line in New York City. She takes a job as a night security guard to pay the rent.

Sparks fly when she mistakes her boss for an intruder.

He can’t get her out of his head. She can’t find the strength to deny him.

Will lies bring them together or tear them apart forever?

New Release: TEACH ME by Donna McDonald

Here is the third short novella I released. Teach Me was previously offered in Quickies Volume 1 which is no longer for sale, so no need to buy it again if you bought that title.

Teacher Leslie Mercer returns to her hometown to help her high school boyfriend recover from a head injury. While Murphy’s is stuck in the past, Leslie finds out his younger brother, has had a crush on her for years.

The now all-grown-up Grayson Webb says he has been waiting all his life for the chance to be with her. While Murphy recuperates, Gray asks her to teach him all the things he’s never had a chance to learn about women.

But when their impromptu summer school ends, what will happen then?

New Release: HER BEST MISTAKE by Donna McDonald

Here is another short novella I have released. Her Best Mistake was previously offered in Quickies Volume 1 which is no longer for sale, so no need to buy it again if you bought that title.

Maybe other forty year old divorced women were different, but Lisa Dennison was not the kind of woman to climb into bed with every guy she dated.

Actually, she should never even have agreed to date younger man, Eric Roberts at all. She was flattered by the attention, but as a person, Eric never really interested her.

So how can rationalize sleeping with Eric's Harvard Professor of Archeology twin? What she did with Finn was a mistake--a big mistake--even if it doesn't feel like one.

New Release: CRUISING SPEED by Donna McDonald

This week I released a short novella based on the Art Of Love series. Cruising Speed was previously offered in Quickies Volume 1 which is no longer for sale, so no need to buy it again if you bought that title.

Selling her dead husband’s super-sized Harley is traumatic, but bike shop owner, Kia Anders, knows she needs to let go of the past. The big bike has sat in her garage unused for a couple years, just like she has been.

When the very large, very excited Mikkel Gunnarsen arrives to buy it, his pleasure makes the decision to sell to the younger man much easier than she ever imagined it would be.

The same is also true for the decision that ends with Mikkel spending the night in her bed.

Come See Me at Arizonia Dreamin' (Giveaway included)

Arizona Dreamin' is a wonderful reader-author conference and I'm attending this year as a featured author. Hosted by the lovely author, Kris Tualla, AD is happening in Scottsdale, AZ (just outside Phoenix) and runs from May 30 to June 1, 2014.

Some of my local author peeps, Robyn Peterman, J.M.Madden, Kallypso Masters, and Hallee Bridgeman are making the journey out west with me. It will be great fun to spend some extended time with all of them. I'm also going to get to visit with author friends Sharon Hamilton and Deena Remiel. Plus there is a list of others that I have never met, but am looking forward to meeting. The variety is a cross-genre kind of heaven for readers.

To make attending even more tempting for you, I'm giving away three tickets to the conference. For winners, I will also have a signed book and others goodies to give you when we meet. The caveat is that you'll have to cover all the other costs yourself, such as getting there and the hotel stay. The ticket pays for all the events covered by the conference.

New Release: THE WRONG TODD by Donna McDonald

Happy Valentine's Day!  This is a romance author's favorite holiday and to celebrate I wrote a quirky, happy love story for you.


After she survives the bachelor auction, Sabine vows she is never doing another favor for a friend. This is especially true for favors that involve spending large sums of money and buying men whose last names she doesn't even know.

In twenty bachelors, Sabine maybe expected to find several Davids, Mikes, or Johns. But what were the odds of two Todds?

And now what is she going to do on a date with the wrong one?
