DUTCH is Madhuri Pavamani’s first book in a stunning new,  suspenseful urban fantasy series that will take you on a wild ride of danger, love, sex and magic.
Synopsis:
I’ve spent years holed up in the deepest, darkest parts of the city, fighting to keep Death and her Poochas from crossing the dead back to the living. My skill with a blade is bested only by my menace, my despair, my anguish – the strongest weapons I yield.
Then I meet Juma Landry and it all goes to hell.
She is beauty and love and sex and light, everything I am not. And she makes me want things I haven’t desired in years. But the monsters of my life, the evil lurking in the dark corners of my soul, those places craven and vile, bind me to a past I cannot shake free. As the most skilled Keeper for The Gate, nothing and no one can prevent me from excelling at a job I never wanted. I do it because it is my legacy, a fate I cannot outrun, but when Juma becomes my next assignment, each of her nine lives to be ended by my hand, I must decide: the legacy I never wanted or the love I don’t deserve, and put Ellis in harm’s way.  Can they overcome their fear of relationships or will they destroy each other?
“Full of sex, magic, and turmoil…poetic and utterly beautiful. I can’t remember the last time a book made to stop and think, wow.” Meredith Wild, #1 New York Times bestselling author

LIFE DOESN’T EVER GO AS PLANNED, BUT CAN BE BETTER THAN IMAGINED.
Her mother’s death. His PTSD. A combustible relationship. 

A CAREGIVER WHO NEEDS TO MAKE A PLAN, AND FAST…
Ashley Bryant has less than five weeks to organize, sell, and pack away her old life before she’s uprooted and forced into a completely new one. She needs to make several critical decisions, and with her life upended and spiraling out of control, the last thing Ashley needs is a sexy U.S. Marine complicating matters.

A MARINE WHO HAD A PLAN BUT HAS LOST HIS WAY…
Gunnery Sergeant Chase Daniels has just buried his best friend, and his commanding officer has given him a month to commit to either retiring or returning to active duty. Struggling with PTSD, fatigue, and grief, he stumbles into Elkridge, a quiet Colorado mountain town, to figure out his future.

With their lives in upheaval, Ashley and Chase have a lot in common, but the last thing each needs are more complications—like their instant attraction to each other.

The ELKRIDGE SERIES is a set of steamy contemporary romance novels about wounded women and the men who heal them.  If you like heartfelt characters, deep topics with powerful emotional cores, and happy endings, then you’ll love Lyz Kelley’s incredible tales of strength, love, and survival. 

The third, full-length novel in the series, ABANDONED continues to give you a peek into the day-to-day lives of the town characters, and drops clues about Sheriff Sam’s murder.

Why would I want to read the Elkridge Series?  Each book in the Elkridge series is a piece to a puzzle—a suspenseful mystery involving the murder of a small-town sheriff. You get six contemporary romance books to figure out the mystery and a bunch of happy ever after (HEA) endings. Two novels in this fiction series—Blinded and Orphaned—are award-winning romance books.

Where is Elkridge, Colorado?  Elkridge exists only in my mind. On any given day, I can stop at River Creek Café for Jenna’s fresh baked cinnamon rolls, or shop for a birthday present at Mara’s Blooms, or get my nails done at Kym’s nail salon. Sitting in the park eating lunch, I can watch the kids play and hear the latest gossip from neighbors. Later, if I want, I can stop at Mad Jack’s to hear a local band play and get some dinner. Elkridge is a great small town where the sun shines 360 days a year and people do their best to make ends meet.

Would you tell us about your writing process?  It takes me awhile to write each stand-alone story because I am passionate about creating the very best stories for my readers. These contemporary romance books have complex plots and sub-plots and include suspense romance threads, with deep emotional women’s fiction elements, humor and even a bit of quirkiness. I’m so excited to see the 5-star ratings because it means I’ve created the ideal mix to provide readers with a few hours of enjoyment.

ABANDONED: Frequently Asked Questions: (FAQ)
Sheriff Joe shows up in ABANDONED several times. Does this mean there are more clues as to who (OR WHOM?) murdered Sheriff Sam?
Absolutely. Joe is still trying to catch a killer, but he’s not the only character presenting clues in this book.  Don’t forget, I’ve slipped in a few red herrings to keep you guessing. 
I was surprised to see a poem in this book. What inspired you to add it?
I’ve been writing poetry for years. The challenge was to create a poem that Chase’s character would write—something corny, simple, and amateurish. I didn’t want the poem to look like it could be a Pulitzer winner—thus you have Chase’s love poem to Ashley.
Where did the inspiration for Ashley’s father come from?

My father was a Marine. My brother was in the Navy. My husband was in the Air Bourne.  I have friends that have served in both the Army and Air Force. Basically, I respect those in the military for their sacrifices and challenges. While I know many military families move  as their assignments change, I’ve had two friends in my life where a military parent has chosen to create a stable base for their spouse and kids, and return home whenever possible. This type of arrangement is unusual, but it does happen. I wanted to explore the family structure and how each person must live with the sacrifice.

PAST CHOICES DO NOT DETERMINE THE FUTURE…
A broken heart. A yearning soul. A choice to make.
A SALON OWNER WHO’S FORGOTTEN HER DREAMS…
Kym Zhang feels stuck. Her parents abruptly moved, leaving her to balance running a nail salon and helping her best friend heal after a near-fatal car accident. The day-to-day grind is getting tedious until a mechanic sparks her interest.
A MECHANIC WHO’S STUCK IN THE PAST…
Zach Cohen’s been all over the world building cars for movie stunt scenes. When his mentor asks for help, the Hollywood film mechanic can’t refuse. Besides, he needs a quiet place to rest, and time to get over the woman who demolished his heart.
When the cute salon owner asks him to jump her—actually her car—he figures Kym to be the perfect solution to defuse the volatile situation with his ex. However, he underestimates Kym, and how much she can make him forget old hurts in favor of new love. A slow sizzle burns between Zach and Kym until Hollywood calls him back, forcing them to make choices between their obligations and what they truly want out of life.

SPURNED: Frequently Asked Questions: (FAQ)
Why did you choose a Hollywood mechanic for Zach’s profession?
My best friend since college has worked in feature films, most recently she worked on Fast and Furious 6.  Hearing about the behind-the-scenes challenges, and seeing special footage of the car chase scene was fun.  During those weeks of shooting, my friend got to know many of the guys working on the cars. While a Hollywood mechanic sounds sexy, most of the guys worked around the clock to modify cars ahead of the filming schedule. They are well aware that things can and do go wrong. Cars get crashed or dented or the on-board camera angle needs to be changed. It’s a hard job, but never more rewarding when a chase scene sequence runs perfectly.
What’s up with Kym and her sister?
Kym has always been the more serious and responsible sibling, as demonstrated when she stays behind to help Mara recover from her near-fatal car accident. When Kym’s family essentially abandons her by moving away from Elkridge, she is determined to make her life work.  Since the age of 19, Kym’s essentially taken care of herself, with little to no support, and resents her older sister who has always depended on others to bail her out.
What happened between Kym and Brad Clairemont?

Brad has small-town syndrome. Like his sister, Rachelle, they are big fish in a small pond, and have an entitled attitude. According to the small town standard, their dad is wealthy and connected. The siblings have been raised to believe they are untouchable. Take an arrogant male, and pair him with a stubborn woman, and you get a combustible relationship.  Unfortunately, Brad is no gentleman; he uses his fists to communicate and get his way.

Excerpt

They murmur their agreement before leaving me with Addie. I know what thoughts are running through their mind, but I don’t care.  Here in the dim light, I brush a strand of hair from her face and take a moment of self-indulgent gazing before gathering her in my arms and carrying her back to her room. As we travel, she sleepily wraps her arms around my neck, snuggling into me. I still so as not to wake her. Once arrived at her room, I settle her in bed, pulling the duvet over her. Dimitri was right, I don’t want to let her go but I must. “I will do whatever it takes to keep you safe and to be worthy of you. Even if that means letting you go,” I whisper before gently kissing her forehead. I Make my way to the door as quietly as I can, trying not to wake her but she stirs. “Kaden, is that you?” she asks sleepily. “Yeah, you fell asleep earlier, I thought I’d bring you back.” “You always do,” she says, falling back into a heavy sleep.

Standard
Book: Incident of Magic
Authors: Patricia A. Knight and Kris Micheals
Genre: M/M Crime Romance – Alternate Reality

Release Day: 1st March

#IncidentofMagicTour


Synopsis

Sold at the age of twelve to support his mother’s drug habit and rescued from a life on the streets by a cop, thirty-two-year old Tony Locke had had a brutal start in life. He’d risen to the position of homicide detective in the Everlight Police Department—a testament to his intelligence and driving ambition to help other victims of Everlight’s prolific industry in sex and drugs. With his promotion to the hush-hush Interdimensional Task Force, he could broaden his reach—if he could just get along with his a-hole of a partner.

Leo Fortan labored under a soul-crushing burden of sacrifice, trapped in a lonely and rigid existence. Hand-picked from that existence and assigned to the Interdimensional Task Force, he thought his life had taken a turn for the better—until he met his partner, Tony Locke. Leo thought it probable they would kill each other.

For a man who thought love didn’t exist and a man who’d sacrificed everything for it, finding common ground may require more than an incident of magic.

Excerpt


Locke wanted to apprehend the transporters, interrogate them and set up a raid on the locations in Everlight where the kidnapped victims were held. A colossal waste of time as far as he was concerned. He conceded that Locke’s whining about his non-cooperation held some truth. He hadn’t cooperated, but then Locke hadn’t even considered working the case from his angle. With what Silk was beginning to consider Locke’s MO—everything the man did lacked thorough planning—Locke had charged off, engaged in an ill-conceived cowboy shootout, screamed at him to chase the perp down, then stormed after the suspect and KO’d himself. Silk’d had to abandon his stealthy pursuit and watch the perp vanish through a transient portal into Elysium. Yeah, he had a few things he wanted to say to Kavaliro and Chief Hocinka about his Everlight ‘partner,’ like, how soon could he be reassigned?
The passenger door swung open, and Locke collapsed onto the car seat. Silk dug into a pocket on his tactical vest pulled, out an emergency trauma kit and offered it to Locke. “Should be some gauze pads in there.”
The man crossed his arms over his chest, glared straight ahead and muttered a nasal, “Fuck you,” that came out, “Nuck ooo.”
“You’re getting blood on the upholstery.”
“Nuck ooo.”
“I’m taking you to the emergency room. Your forehead’s going to need stitches.”
“Just drive.”
“Your door’s still open.”
With a groan, Locke leaned over and pulled the car door shut.
“If you feel like puking, make sure you roll down the window.”

Locke turned his bloody face toward Silk and snarled. With a chuckle, Silk started the engine, put the car in gear and drove to St. Mercy in blessed silence.
