FEATURED AUTHOR—BARBARA DONLON BRADLEY FORGOTTEN DESIRE, BOOK SIX OF THE VESPIAN WAY Phaze Publishing Heather and Storm’s story continues... When Storm leans against one of Bert’s machines and is sent back in time without his memories, Heather has to go after him. A simple retrieval won’t work. She has to make him remember before they can return to their own timeline. Finding him is easy. Getting him to regain his memories isn't. Then she finds out Ialog is there, giving Storm something to keep his memories at bay. Now she has to find a way to stop her old nemesis, and bring her mate home.

BIOGRAPHY Writing for Barbara Donlon Bradley started innocently enough. Like most, she kept diaries, journals, and wrote an occasional letter, but she also had a vivid imagination and wrote scenes and short stories that added characters to her favorite shows and comic books. As time went on she found the passion for writing to be a strong drive for her. Humor is also very strong in her life. No matter how hard she tries to write something deep and dark, it will never happen. That humor bleeds into her writing. Since she can’t beat it, she has learned to use it to her advantage. Now she lives in Tidewater, Virginia, with two cats, one mother in law (who’s eighty-six now), and her husband and teenage son. Ed. Note: In her spare time, Barbara is an Assistant Editor for the Marketing for Romance Writers Newsletter. Thanks, Barb!

HESITANT DESIRE, BOOK FIVE OF THE VESPIAN WAY Phaze Publishing Heather swore she’d never go back to Aruka after a mission went bad. The planet had an archaic view of women, and Heather fought against those views, angering one man to the point of whipping her. Now Earth has requested she rescue a missing woman on that planet. She wants to say no, but Storm has already accepted for her, as long as he accompanies her. They hope it will be a quick inand-out assignment, but they didn’t expect to run into the man still carrying such hatred for her all these years. Now they have to try to finish their mission while evading the man whose only goal is to make Heather pay for her “crimes.”

A Cowgirl’s Christmas Gift

By: Starla Kaye

December 6, 2013

The Plot: When a tragic accident changes her brother’s life forever, Kelli gives up her dreams to help care for him, even though he doesn’t want that. But how can she go on with her life when James needs her? How can she be happy at holiday time when there’s nothing to be happy about? Worse, how can she possibly be attracted to the man she blames for ruining their lives? A man James lured to their ranch for reasons of his own. Even though the accident that took his sister’s life and left her fiancé, his friend, partially paralyzed wasn’t Nic Battelli’s fault, the memory tortures him with guilt and grief. He can’t get beyond it, can’t deal with his business, the holidays, or anything else. But his friend is determined to give him a kick in the ass to get him to live again. Then he meets Kelli, and despite her wrongly blaming him and smothering Jason, her sassy temptation sparks feelings he never thought he’d have again. But she’s too young for him, too innocent, too bratty, and his best friend’s sister. Still…

Clay’s Quest

January 15, 2014

The Plot: She’ll do anything to get her way. Tall, elegant, and beautiful, Emma Thorpe has wanted a baby for years. The yearning for a child occupies all her thoughts, her time, her effort, and any money she and her husband can scrape up for medical intervention. After trying and failing to conceive, the solution that finally comes to her is to leave her husband and hope to find a man—any man—capable of fulfilling her deepest desire. Big, handsome Clay Thorpe isn’t the kind of man to let his wife just wander away. It takes a few months of Emma’s absence from his bed to devise a plan, but he’s determined. Eventually, Clay lures Emma home with a convoluted strategy only he could concoct, involving an antique diamond ring, sex three times a day, and—a turkey baster?

Review—Shanean Reed of Just One More Romance Wrote: “Clay and Emma are not your typical married couple. They have a love for each other that is meant to last a life time [sic] and a blazing inferno in the bedroom.” http://

Always a Bridesmaid

January 17, 2014

The Plot: Dani Dipietro has always considered herself an ugly duckling in a family of swans. She's the bridesmaid her friends count on, but never the woman any man wants for his bride. So she plays the funny girl and guards her emotions—and her secrets—closely. When Zach Morrison was dumped at his wedding, Dani was there to help him through the humiliation. A year later they meet again, and once more Zach needs her help. To fend off the unwanted attentions of his former fiancée, he asks Dani to pretend to be his girlfriend. They play their roles a little too well, and make-believe turns into reality. But their relationship comes crashing down when Zach's trust issues cause him to accuse Dani of cheating. Telling the truth means Dani would have to betray a friend, something she would never do. But keeping secrets means she may remain a bridesmaid forever.

New Year’s Eve

January 24, 2014

The Plot: Love Was a Resolution They Didn’t Plan on Making Eve Larson arranged a solitary New Year’s celebration at her mother’s beach house to give herself the space to evaluate her recent hurts—the death of her mother and a broken engagement. She wants nothing more than to put them behind her and make a fresh start on January 1. When her ex-fiancé’s brother, Spencer Canley, shows up with one final demand from her past, Eve worries her plans are sinking like a ship off her beloved Texas coast. Circumstances keep Spencer at the beach longer than either of them initially wants, but the delay gives each of them the opportunity to see the other in a different light. As Spencer makes a decision that changes everything about his upcoming year, he realizes he doesn't want to repeat his brother’s mistake of pushing Eve away. A year ago, the changing of the calendar brought news that changed Eve’s whole life. Could this new year bring love back?

And he’s about to make his dreams reality as curriculum leader for the district’s new Science and Technology Academy. When a poem arrives on his desk drawing him into The Cupid Caper, the Valentine’s Day-themed dance and fundraiser for Skyview High’s Student Council, Luke dismisses it as a silly game. But when he realizes winning the grand prize in The Cupid Caper is the only way he can help a star student attend the STEM Academy, he agrees to help. Working together, the teachers realize The Cupid Caper’s more than a game, but neither can voice his or her feelings.

By: Jessie Gage

March 15, 2014

The Plot: Divorced construction worker Derek has anger management issues. Acting rashly on the freeway, he causes an accident. His truck escapes unscathed, but he can’t say the same for his conscience. Visions of the wreck haunt his dreams, but they’re always followed by the sweet caresses and soothing words of a beautiful woman who calls to everything male in him. Cami assumes she is dead. With no memory of her past, all she knows is endless fog and the occasional visit to a darkened bedroom where she comforts a man battling nightmares. When she wakes in a hospital bed and regains her memory, she assumes the ruggedly handsome Derek was no more than a figment of her concussed mind. As Cami recovers, she learns that Derek is not only real but also the driver charged with causing her accident. She should be furious with him, but their inexplicable nights together showed her a tender side beneath his rough exterior. Will she let one reckless mistake drive them apart, or will forgiveness have the right of way? Review—Angela Rose, Satin Sheets Romance Reviews Wrote: “This story was magical in every way, and I was unable to put it down.

David Kelly is a hustler, and he’s way out of Ian's league. He’d never look twice at a guy like Ian, a guy with little means to woo the needy but to-die-for David. Yet one day David not only looks, but touches, flirts, and all but invites Ian to lure him away from his sugar daddy. But David can’t let anything break his carefully constructed walls. Ian doesn’t know much about David’s past, and what he doesn't know could hurt them both. Ian says David's past doesn't matter, but when he sees David with another older gentleman, he immediately thinks the worst. Both men must embrace honesty or lose each other for good.

Trailing Kaiwulf

By: Kayelle Allen

February 12, 2014

The Plot: Find an invisible man in another dimension? All in a day's work at TRAIL. Yanked back from their first vacation in ages, Jee and Dane get handed a top priority mission. The pay is better than any they've earned before as agents for the Trace, Rescue, and Identification League. With this much money, they might not need jobs. They're the best there is, and the item, person, or secret hasn't been invented that these two can't recover. But locating this quarry might be a bit past even their considerable skills. After all, how do you find an invisible man in another dimension? And who, exactly, is footing a bill this steep? Certainly not the archaeologist in charge. The military wants to get involved, but they have no monetary stake either. So who—or what—is behind the request to trail Kaiwulf? No Reviews Yet.
