New releases are always exciting — as are bestseller list, awards nominations, awards wins and so, so many other things in publishing! Yes, I’ll admit it, I love our wild and crazy business.
I’m absolutely thrilled to post about this week’s new releases: THE TEXAN’S RETURN by Karen Whiddon, and the new edition of VAMPED, which kicks off my entire Vamped series — with more re-releases and an all new 5th book, FANGDEMONIUM, to come!
THE TEXAN’S RETURN by Karen Whiddon, Harlequin Romantic Suspense (B&N, Amazon)
A dying father’s final wish brings a mystery to life once again…
In the small town of Legacy, Texas, an old man is dying. At his side is the son determined to clear his name. Mac Morrison knows his father was wrongfully imprisoned for murder, and he’s determined to find the real killer. But not before he reunites with a love from his past…
Hailey Green, who’s still grieving her brutally murdered sister, hasn’t seen Mac since he fled town in disgrace. Forced to raise her siblings, Hailey still relies on no one but herself—until the man who killed her sister returns. Turning to each other while seeking answers, Hailey and Mac find their old desires reignited and realize that the only life worth protecting is one together!
VAMPED by Lucienne Diver, Lore Seekers Press (B&N, Amazon)
Gina Covello’s “Rules for Surviving Your Senior Prom” (spring issue of Modern Goth Magazine):
Rule #1: Do not get so loaded at the after prom party that you accidentally-on-purpose end up in the broom closet with the surprise hottie of the evening, say the class chess champ who’s somewhere lost his Coke-bottle lenses and undergone an extreme makeover, especially if that makeover has anything to do with becoming one of the undead.
Gina Covello has a problem. Waking up a dead is just the beginning. There’s very little she can’t put up with for the sake of eternal youth and beauty. Blood-sucking and pointy stick phobias seem a small price to pay. But she draws the line when local vampire vixen Mellisande gets designs on her hot new boyfriend with his prophesied powers and hatches a plot to turn all of Gina’s fellow students into an undead army to be used to overthrow the vampire council.
Hey, if anyone’s going to create an undead entourage, it should be Gina! Now she must unselfishly save her classmates from fashion disasters and her own fanged fate.
