Every year we have several standout people, and we like to recognize them publicly. I hope this doesn’t take away from the fact that the auction would not be successful without each and every one of you—it’s just a little extra thank you for those who really pushed hard to raise our totals. Agent of the Year Jim McCarthy Editor of the Year Esi Sogah Author of the Year Nancy Naigle Auction MVPs (Most Valuable People) We had amazing support from so many Romance Writers of America members, but a special thanks to authors Debbie Kaufman and Anna Kathryn Lanier who each hosted numerous categories in this year's auction.

Sylvia Day and Kristen Ashley were also big hitters in this department. And to Olga Grun, who year after year, donates such beautiful items from all around the world. Your generosity and enthusiasm is one of the highlights of our year. Above and Beyond To all our donors this year who offered amazing items and opportunities. Without you and our loyal shoppers, we wouldn't have reached our goals. We cannot thank you enough. Lastly, this auction could not happen without the support and efforts of so many. As always, to my assistant, Anna J Stewart, and her team that includes volunteers (you read that right—these three people donate countless hours) Danita Moon, Stephanie Novembri and Lauren Jameson. Also, huge thanks to Pierce Mattie, our PR guru who also donates his time to help us behind the scenes. Pierce brought in items worth over $50,000 this year on top of all the PR help. Wow!

Eclipse of the Heart

April 1, 2013

Amanda Thompson is offered her dream job as a junior executive at a Manhattan venture firm. The terms are a little vague, but she has a seriously ill sister to provide for, and her new boss is a seriously attractive man. Failure is not an option, so she'll keep her eye on the prize, and her heart and body out of the mix‌despite the boss's overly personal interest in her. Logan Winter is a hard-driving business tycoon who likes his sex life hot and his emotional life cold. His new high-end call girl is a little different from the ordinary bimbos who fill the role. That's okay, since he's ready for different. Even discovering the mistake that's been made is okay, because he knows how to get what he wants‌and he wants Amanda.

Heartstrings

April 1, 2013

The last person Abby Crawford wants to face down is country music superstar Seth Kendall. Last time she did, she flat-out lied so he’d go to Nashville without her. She’s never understood why their mutual best friend proposed, but she went with it so her baby wouldn’t be fatherless. Now she’s a divorced mother of a teenager, and secretly Seth’s biggest fan. Seth is home in McAllister, Texas, for his father’s funeral���and a chance to meet the daughter he’s never known. He’s willing to face the music and admit he’s known about his little girl all along. For fifteen years he’s kept his distance because Abby told him she didn’t love him. But now he won’t leave until he knows his daughter, even if it means facing the woman who broke his heart. Confessing she’s lied about her daughter’s paternity won’t be easy for Abby, especially with her ex blackmailing her. And Seth doesn’t know the hardest truth of all: Every love song he plays still plucks her heartstrings. Publisher: Lyrical Press, Inc.

There Goes the Groom

May 17, 2013

Eight years ago Tony left Olivia at the altar. He was sure she didn't really want to marry him. Now he's back, and they're forced to work together. Coming home isn't easy for Tony because of his unsteady relationship with his father. Even before Tony's return, Olivia questioned her love for her fiancé, a man she chose because he was safe. The last thing she wants is a loveless, faithless marriage like the one her parents have. When Tony, who never stopped loving her, insists her fiancé is wrong for her, Olivia sets out to prove him wrong. But the sexual chemistry between them is still strong, and so are her feelings for him. How can she break her engagement and hurt her fiancé as she was once hurt? How can she trust Tony not to abandon her like he did before?

June Release By: Donna Gallagher

Sarah’s Soldier

June 7, 2013

When Sarah, digital and social media coordinator—or “digi-chick” as she’s been called—is asked to babysit the special guest at the Jets Rugby League Club’s annual Anzac Day clash, she’s hesitant. What will the returning war hero, wounded from battle, think when he lays eyes on her dyed, flaming red hair and her face full of metal piercings? More than likely, the rule-following, uniform-wearing conformist will take one look at her and double-time it away from her feral-looking behind. But the sexual attraction that sizzles between Sarah and Dylan is evident from their first touch, and despite the walls around both their hearts that protect from childhood loss and pain, they are keen to take advantage of the sheet-scorching, orgasm-exploding sexual tension that is simmering between them. Of course, falling in love was never part of the plan.

Summer Camp Recipe

Cornish Pasties Rochelle Weber Pastry: Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling 1 cup (2 sticks or 8 ounces) unsalted butter, very-cold, cut into 1/2 inch cubes or other shortening or a combination thereof 1 teaspoon salt 6 to 8 Tbsp ice water

days. Remove one crusts from the refrigerator. Let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes in order to soften just enough to make rolling out a bit easier. Roll out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface to a 6-inch circles; about 1/8 of an inch thick. As you roll out the dough, check if the dough is sticking to the surface below. If necessary, add a few sprinkles of flour under the dough to keep the dough from sticking.

Filling: Directions: Combine flour and salt, in a food processor; pulse to mix. Add butter and pulse 6 to 8 times, until mixture resembles coarse meal, with pea size pieces of butter. Add ice water 1 Tbsp at a time, pulsing until mixture just begins to clump together. If you pinch some of the crumbly dough and it holds together, it's ready. If the dough doesn't hold together, add a little more water and pulse again. Note that too much water will make the crust tough. (I have never used a machine. I use a fork and mix by hand.) Remove dough from machine and place in a mound on a clean surface. If you want an extra flaky crust, shmoosh the dough mixture into the table top with the heel of the palm of your hand a few times. This will help flatten the butter into layers between the flour which will help the resulting crust be flaky. You can easily skip this step if you want. Gently shape the dough mixture into disks. Work the dough just enough to form the disks, do not over-knead. You should be able to see little bits of butter in the dough. These small chunks of butter are what will allow the resulting crust to be flaky. Sprinkle a little flour around the disks. Wrap each disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, and up to 2

Ingredients: Chopped or Ground Steak Egg Potato Celery Onion Salt Pepper Directions: Pre-heat oven to 375 or 400. Combine meat, egg, and diced veggies.

After touring the universe with the sometimes inept time traveler John Smith, Cici Connors wants one more thing—to go home. Will the imminent destruction of Earth throw a kink into her plans? (Leaving Who is a sequel to Loving Who, a romantic-comedy of trans-dimensional proportions from Mojocastle Press.) About the Author: I'm a big Doctor Who fan and have always wondered what it would be like if a time traveler did visit Earth and ask me to come along with him on an adventure. Things wouldn't work quite as smoothly as they do on TV, of course, and my romantic alien time traveler might have a few foibles and habits that are hard to get use to.

Summer Camp Recipe

Steampunk Pot Roast By Rochelle Weber These days most people throw their pot roast ingredients into a slow cooker and plug it in, but in Victorian times modern cooks used steam under pressure to cut their cooking time. In fact, my sister (who is much older than me) used a pressure cooker in the late fifties/early sixties when I was small, and she babysat me while Mama worked evenings—so I had a lot of pot roasts made Steampunk style. Who’da thunk it’d become a fad in the twenty-first century? Ingredients: 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 (3 pound) boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed ground black pepper to taste 1 pinch seasoned salt, or to taste 1 pinch onion powder, or to taste 1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 large onion, cut into 4 wedges 4 carrots, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces Directions: Heat oil in a pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Brown roast on all sides in the hot oil; season with pepper, seasoned salt, and onion powder. Pour in beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, add the quartered onion, and seal the lid. Bring the cooker up to full pressure. Reduce heat to low, maintaining full pressure, and cook for 30 minutes. Use the quick-release method to lower the pressure. Mix in carrots and potatoes, seal the lid again, and return the pressure cooker to the heat. Bring the cooker up to full pressure and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Use the quick-release method again and transfer the roast and vegetables to a serving dish.

Before the automaton is finished, Brenton is run over and killed by a carriage driven by Sir William Tyndale. The automaton comes to life, communicating with Alan through written messages and drawings of the past and the future. Alan is convinced Brenton’s spirit possesses the machine and refuses to sell it. Sir Tyndale sees the likeness of his own dead son in the device and is determined to have it by any means. Driven by grief and fatherly love, the two men are set on a collision course with the soul of a young boy trapped between them, and Brenton's reasons for possessing the automaton a mystery to them both.
