That's right, give us a title, blurb, and a buy link. (No excerpts, please, for space.) Any genre, any heat level, and up to THREE per author. (One book per comment, please.) So go ahead and pimp your book and let's see how many new reads we can discover.

  1. When Promise Meets Passion:

    When Cole Bottego met Leah Allbright she was just a girl, the younger sister of his Marine buddy, Dex. Both of their lives were changed forever in 2007 when an IED killed Dex. In his friend’s final moments, Cole promised to always look out for Leah.

    Years pass and Cole keeps his promise. Now grown, Leah is a rookie police officer under the watchful eye of her police chief, Cole. The dynamics of their new roles prove to be more than either of them were prepared for. After years of being best friends they find their feelings changing and complicating their once-easy camaraderie.

    Will temptation prove to be too strong for either of them to resist as they’re given a chance to have something neither of them knew they wanted? Or will Cole push his desires aside because of a promise he made years earlier to a dying friend?

  1. UNDERCOVER LOVERS
    Urban Affairs: 1

    [Ménage Amour ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, shape-shifters, HEA]

    Undercover Were-agent Slade Wolfe works for the Department of Shifter Affairs. He's on special assignment to take down Jaxon Castle, a resistance leader. Slade's contact in New York is a human cop, Mike Donovan, who's hiding his real relationship with their target—he and Jaxon are lovers. When Slade beds Jaxon so he can plant his surveillance equipment, a jealous Mike freaks out.

    Both agents suspect the charges have been trumped up by the Feds and they're reluctant to take Jaxon down, but the director of DSA is getting antsy and he orders Mike to kill his partner and frame Jaxon for the murder. Getting rid of his competition is tempting, but Mike can't kill an innocent man, even if it means he'll end up in DSA's crosshairs with his rival and his boyfriend.

  1. For Tia's Pleasure

    The Kinsey triplets own and operate a very successful BDSM club in town. Having their pick of submissives on a nightly basis is starting to wear thin. They’d always dreamed of finding that one woman to share their lives with, the one woman strong enough to handle their dominance in the bedroom and submit to them, body, heart, and soul.

    Tia is that woman—strong, independent, and submissive as hell in the bedroom. But taking on three alpha males wasn’t what she wanted. She’s left a marriage to a man who would do anything to get ahead in business. She has a daughter to worry about, and adding one man, let alone three, just isn’t in the cards for her. But the more time she spends with Ryder, Sam, and Dan, the deeper she falls for them. With a crazy ex determined to get what he wants, will the triplets be able to show Tia just how much they really care for her?

  1. Sienna's Submission -

    God, the dreams are getting worse and worse every night. I can’t stop thinking about them during the day now, either. Maybe if I quit reading those erotic novels Brianna keeps giving me I might be able to get a good night's sleep.

    Mikhail and Sasha Dalhousie are every woman’s fantasy. Well, at least, every sane woman. Sienna wants to show them there is more to her than what they see at the office. Sasha and Mikhail want their little PA more than anything. But she’d been through a rough marriage, and what they need to give her may be more than she can handle. Once they get her to do them this "favor," they will be able to show her their world. If only they were the only ones who want her…

Satisfied to have her body shared, her hand is forced by the snake. The beast entices and excites her, but also scares her. The man will not be denied. Neither will the snake. Kyra is powerless against her attraction to the man, but in order to have him, she must learn total submission.

  1. Hi Tymber, what fun! Thanks for this opportunity. While you are being flooded out, here in the Midwest we are so dry I swear my grass could spontaneously combust!

    Here are my 2 alpha-female spy books:

    Secret Love: Sheena has spent the last twelve years working for a government agency so secret that she didn't even learn what it was called for a year. She enjoys the work, but is getting bored. She tries her usual cure: a new man. But something about this one is different...and she develops feelings. In her world, even having feelings is dangerous. Indulging them by falling in love can be deadly.

    And the sequel, Undercover Lovers:
    Ameena has never been able to forget what she endured on her last assignment before she left the agency. She was the only female agent to live through what The Executioner did to his victims, but she still bears the scars, both physical and psychological. When he escapes from his prison cell, her ex-handler brings two agents with him to tell her that one or the other will be her shadow until her torturer is caught again...only this time he will allow her to kill him.

    Having kept herself too busy for romance, she is caught off-guard by the sudden insertion into her life of two gorgeous men, one who actively pursues her and one whom she finds more attractive for his shyness. Will she live long enough to make a choice? And is that the end of the story...or the beginning?

  1. Oops! Sorry about putting 2 books in the last posting, but they are the 2 parts of a series.

    Here is a stand-alone book:
    Two For Tuesday

    Melanie was the co-ed all the guys wanted, the one who was trying to get the college to let her minor in sex. Marcus was the poor ghetto-student on a full-ride scholarship, trying to keep his head above water in medical school, and unable to allow himself more than one night a week off from his studying. What started out as a one-night stand, became a once-a week thing, until Marcus began to realize that sharing Melanie with whomever she picked up for the night was not enough for him. Just when he got her to agree to be monogamous, they graduated and she took a job in another state. Years later, now in the middle of a divorce, he realizes that the only woman he ever really loved was the one who got away. He finds her name on the internet, and drives up unannounced to see her. She is afraid that his being a married man will threaten her teaching job, so she is trying to keep him at arms' length away. Which only works for a while...

    Here's my blurb for The Rose and the Dragon, released by Class Act Books on June 15:

    When Miranda Wilson answers just such an advertisement, she doesn’t realize what she’s walking into. It could’ve been the plot of a Gothic novel, with a handsome widower, three orphaned children, and herself as the innocent governess…but that’s before she meets her boss’ younger brother, a knock-out hunk by the name of Kitten.

    There are odd undercurrents in the Andrus household, however, and before she knows it, Miranda Wilson, Nanny, finds herself Miranda Wilson, Alien Abductee, as she’s whisked to the planet Gataeus where Dominic Andrus is the head of the planet’s largest crime family and Kit is his chief hitman.

    Now, she’s in the middle of an interplanetary war with her three charges as the prize.

    What’s an Earthwoman to do?
