Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 6, 2018
Can her light overcome his darkness?
Bailey Woods is perfectly content living the single life. After being disappointed by men one too many times, she completely gave up on dating. Until she volunteers to spend time with a lonely horse and winds up working with the surliest man she’s ever met. So, why can’t she stop thinking about him?
Ryder MacAlister has three rules: no girls, no mistakes, and no slowing down. And Bailey is about to make him break all three. From the moment he met her, he felt this undeniable attraction. Fighting it is pointless, but he knows he needs to keep his distance. His past is as sordid as his future and he can’t let anyone else get mixed up in his problems. Especially Bailey.
She can’t resist a challenge and is determined to break down his walls for a single night. But what happens when she sees behind his gruff facade? Will Ryder’s past prevent a future with Bailey? Or could she be what he’s needed all along?
“Heather creates such deep and relatable characters it is easy to get completely lost in the story. . . In reading this book you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be angry with the characters, you’ll be cheering them on. A whole whirlwind of emotions is evoked in this book which is wonderful, I adore a book that can make me feel.” ~ Sara (Goodreads review)

Content Warning: contains some sexual content Genre – Contemporary Romance Heat Level - Hot
Excerpt from The Christmas Ballet: He smiled as he thought about the look on her face when he’d stroked her. Maybe she was more interested in him than she either believed or cared to be. Then he thought of something. “One more thing, Laura,” he called out to her, and she stopped at the door and turned around. “On the nineteenth, the law firm is hosting the annual Christmas party. It’s quite grand and lasts all evening long.” “You want me to be sure to be available to babysit Maria,” Laura said. “No. I want you to plan to come with me.” “What?” “Remember that beautiful, green, velvet dress we saw at Macy’s? I want you to get that dress, and the accessories to go with it, and attend the party with me.” “Stefan, really. You know I don’t go to those types of events, and I don’t wear those kinds of clothes. I’m not comfortable with either of those things.” “You need to get comfortable.” He smiled. “This is not a part of a job for the nanny and teacher. It’s out of the range of the job description. You need to get Ginger to go with you. I’m not going.” She gave him a defiant look. “Laura, I want to take you to this event. I’m not taking no for an answer. I will arrange for Rhonda to take you shopping to help you get what you need. You will charge all the purchases to a credit card I will give you that’s for your use only. This is the first of many social parties you will be attending.” He watched her as she clenched her hands into fists and released them. “Who do you think you will get to care for Maria on these…occasions?” “Usually Lillian is available.” “Stefan, it’s my job to care for Maria, not be your date to your parties. I don’t like being told what I will or won’t do. I don’t like social parties, and I don’t like wearing expensive clothes. It’s not me, and you’re not going to change me.” “I don’t want to change you. I want you to attend an event by my side. It won’t hurt you to have some beautiful clothing to show your feminine side. I want the world to see the beauty I see. Be glad I want to show you off. Some men might decide they don’t want others to see what they see.” “Flattery doesn’t work with me. You can tell me what to do as far as Maria is concerned, but my personal life is off limits to you.” “That’s good to know. At least I know you won’t get carried away and escape my grasp by someone making flattering remarks to you. Your personal life interests me.” “Stefan, you just don’t get it. I am not going to this party,” she said, enunciating each word slowly and carefully. “Besides, your mother would be horrified to see me walk in with you.” Her face hardened as she stared at him. “Look at it this way—you’d be doing me a big favor.” “How?” She raised an eyebrow. “I’m not interested in the other women that come to this social party looking for an eligible bachelor. With you on my arm, it would send a clear message to all the others that I’m taken.” “God, you’re impossible. Ginger is more than capable of providing you that kind of service.” “I don’t want Ginger. You have the grace, quiet beauty, and finesse I want in a date, and I will not take no for an answer. After Maria’s recital, you and Rhonda will set a shopping date. And one more thing. When you get your hair done, I’d like you to wear it down.” He smiled at her. “This is not going to happen.” She put her hands on her hips and glared at him. “It will. I’ll just have Maria work on you.” He eyed her. “What?” Stefan grinned. “You heard me. You’d never turn down anything from Maria.” “Grrrr.” She growled and stomped up the stairs. He laced his hands and put them behind his head. Oh yeah, it’ll be a night she’ll never forget.

SOUL FOOD

Title - Soul Food: A Steamy Paranormal Love Story
Author - Michelle Gross
Genre - 18+ Paranormal Romance
Release Date: November 25, 2018
With no choice, a human bargains her soul for ten years of music and song.
With no time for anything beyond her dream, Ruth Thomas becomes a worldwide sensation, never knowing love or appreciating lust until she finally meets the mysterious president of Black Hearts, Amit Kingston.
In a game of seduction, Ruth thinks she can enjoy a moment of lust, if only once, before the demon comes and devours her soul. Only the demon makes touching men impossible and getting Amit Kingston to crack is a job itself.
The demon doesn’t just own her soul. He controls every aspect of her life, including her fragile heart and her body’s desires.
Worst of all, Ruth doesn’t realize how close the demon really is.

Crimson eyes blinked from the shadowy man. There was a shimmer in his silhouette, like maybe he was moving closer. There was no mouth or eyes. Nothing. Just a shadow with burning red eyes.

“Your soul sang to me, Ruth. It’s why I’m here.”
I shivered. “Please,” I begged, then closed my eyes. “This can’t be real.”
“But I am,” he responded.
My eyes popped open. “What are you?”
“A demon. A soul reaper.”
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write. 
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure. 
She writes and loves many different genres so sign up to her mailing list to keep updated on her releases!

VLAD

Title: Vlad
Series: Veiled #2
Author: Stacey Rourke
Genre: Paranormal Fiction
Release Date: November 26, 2018

History believes me to be a merciless savage. A terror upon the Earth known as The Impaler. Archaic lore whispers I am the first of the vampire lineage. 
These claims ... are all painted in bloody truth. 
Now, while the world watches in fear, a war is brewing. Humans are targeting vampires in merciless attacks to force us back into the shadows. 
They woke me to be their weapon. 
They know not my loathing for my own kind. 
Even I can’t say for certain whose side I’m on. 
I have trembled before the darkness rooted in the Nosferatu bloodline. Been forced to drink of its bitter sacrament. They refer to me as The Son of The Dragon, and I laugh. For I, alone, know that malevolent essence is one no man could ever tame.
