MAKE ME SURRENDER – featured menage in What to Read After FSOG #8 – Out Today – 99 cent box set – ADULT
I’m thrilled to have my contemporary menage Make Me Surrender a part of What to Read After FSOG – out today!!
Make Me Surrender Blurb:
She has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts.
For over a year, Mercy’s had her eye on Travis and Dutch, two of the hottest guys on the Oregon coast. Dark and dangerously virile, Travis owns a saloon that caters to bikers. Dutch looks like one, right down to his impressive tats, and operates a motorcycle repair shop on the premises.
When a position opens in the saloon’s kitchen, Mercy sees a way to be near these sinfully sexy men, wanting the job and lodging, her cabin snuggled between theirs.
Travis isn’t so sure about having Mercy nearby. She’s deliciously curvy, but too nice. He’s into temporary fun. To Dutch, forever is a dirty word.
Imagine their surprise when sweet little Mercy encourages wild nights of carnal pleasure with a dash of bondage and spanking…followed by friendship and tenderness.
Before she’s through, these tough guys will be the ones who’ve surrendered.
I’m so pleased to reveal the new cover for my erotic novella, Making It on Broadway.
Some time ago, one of the major eBook retailers established new rules regarding nudity on book covers. Because of the near-naked woman on the cover, MIOB was relegated to the shelves in the basement. Then they turned the lights off so no one could find it!
Here’s the former cover –
I really hate to see this one go. It was one of my first covers as a self-published author, and one my youngest daughter (she was over 21!) made for me. For someone with zero experience with graphics, I thought she did an excellent job. She has since completed her Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice and is a police officer.
In need of a new cover to bring MIOB out of the basement, I turned to Talina Perkins at Bookinitdesigns. I think y0u can agree with me, that she did a fabulous job of retaining the spirit of the original while creating something new and exciting to attract readers.
HERE’S THE BLURB FOR MAKING IT ON BROADWAY -
Haylee Daniels has landed a role in a Broadway musical about a down on her luck dancer who’ll do anything for another chance at Broadway stardom. The only problem is, Haylee has never danced a day in her life.
Thankfully, she has Chase Nolton, her leading man, and Broadway’s premier choreographer, Carmine Romero to teach her all she needs to know. When Carmine suggests she dance nude in order to better understand a dancer’s body, Haylee fears she may be as desperate for Broadway stardom as her character.
This is a highly erotic short story about three people who find love and make it on Broadway.
MIOB IS AVAILABLE FROM THESE RETAILERS:
Two generations. Two love stories, intertwined…
What if a piece of furniture could change your life?
Antique store owner Samantha Phillips embarks on a quest to find the answer to that question after she stumbles upon a beautiful, weathered wooden trunk. Samantha immediately falls in love with the antiquity when the old, battered wardrobe ends up in her possession. Lodged inside the lining of the footlocker is a stack of old love letters and a gold locket that holds a picture of a handsome young man.
Curiosity gets the better of Samantha and she reads the passionate correspondence one by one, and learns about the love between working class William Hayes and high-society Maggie Flannery. But when Samantha comes to the end of the letters, it is unclear whether William and Maggie end up together.
Driven by a force she can’t fully explain, Samantha contacts the former owner of the trunk, hoping for answers about the young couple. When she reaches out to Maggie’s great-nephew, Bryan Donovan, he is reluctant to share his aunt’s past with a stranger, at least at first. Together, Bryan and Samantha learn the love story of William and Maggie, while discovering their own feelings for each other.
Set in historic St. Charles, Missouri, the story of two star-crossed lovers from the 1920s unfolds through a series of letters and an old diary.
Here’s the excerpt:
Samantha gingerly placed the letter beside her on the sofa and reached for the rest of the stack. She opened each letter one by one and checked for a date. She placed them all in chronological order and then neatly folded them and put them back in their envelopes. She hesitated a moment. Maybe she shouldn’t do this. Megan was right, it was an invasion of privacy. Even though she had no idea who this Maggie was, it still wasn’t the right thing to do.
She shouldn’t read them. Tomorrow morning she’d call whoever had brought the trunk in and return the letters to their rightful owner. But what if that person didn’t care about the letters? After all, Megan had said the guy who sold the piece seemed ready to part with it. What if the trunk held bad memories for him? What if he simply took the letters from her and never opened them? Or worse, what if he threw them in the nearest trash can? With a heavy sigh, she placed the stack of unread letters on the coffee table and walked to the kitchenette to make a cup of tea. Maybe that would help her decide what she should do.
As she sipped from her mug of tea she thought about how she could already be described as a crazy old cat lady. Did she really want to add to her misery by reading someone else’s love letters? Did she need another reminder that she was all alone? Samantha chewed on her thumbnail. She was driving herself mad. There were a million reasons why she shouldn’t read the damn letters and only one reason she felt she should. Because she must. There was no logical way to explain it, but she felt like something in those letters was just for her. She knew they’d been written ages ago—and to someone else—but somehow, some way, there was a message inside them that had been tailored just for her. She set her mug on the coffee table with a decisive thud. She couldn’t ignore the sense of awareness spreading throughout her gut. She reached for the letters and began to read.
The first letter started with the salutation “My dearest Maggie.” Samantha quickly read through the note and when she was finished she began again, reading slowly the second time around. The letter was from someone named William, who was obviously smitten with Maggie.
My dearest Maggie,
Words can’t come close to expressing what I feel for you, but I will use this and all future letters to try. I wish I could see you more often, but I know your mother does not approve of me and our love. I cannot wait for the day when I am able to take you away from there, from the life that doesn’t bring you joy. For my love, you deserve all the joy and happiness in the world. I intend to do all that is in my power now, and for the rest of my days, to ensure you are always happy and that each and every day you wake with a smile upon your face.
One day, hopefully very soon, I will have the means to put a proper ring on your finger and make you mine forever. Until that day, my darling…

Magic, Christmas, Werewolves, Big Beautiful Women
Release Date: November 28, 2014
Author: Anne Kane
Sarah wants a normal life, without all the fur, fangs and drama that comes with her werewolf heritage. She left her home pack and moved to a small town in the Northern Rockies hoping to leave the past behind.
The first time Drake crossed her scent, he knew he wanted Sarah for his mate. Now he just has to convince her that she wants that too. With a wicked sense of humor and a little bit of Christmas magic he hopes to bring her over to his side — permanently.
“If I didn’t know better, I’d think you were trying to avoid me.”
Sarah jumped as the werewolf disengaged himself from a particularly dark shadow. Crap! She’d forgotten how fast her kind could move when it felt motivated. Apparently this guy was extremely motivated.
Schooling her features into her best poker face, she took a deep breath and turned to face him. “If you didn’t know better? What makes you think you know anything about me?”
He laughed then. Actually laughed. The corners of his eyes crinkled and his mouth curved upward. So much for her chilling sarcasm.
“I know enough. Probably more than you want me to.” He pushed himself upright. It only took him one step with those long legs to put him so close that his scent tickled her nose.
A werewolf shouldn’t smell so good, shouldn’t make her belly clench in anticipation. The mere proximity of one certainly shouldn’t make her long to run free with all four paws on the ground. It hadn’t for months now, but she’d know the very minute she’d sensed this guy in the crowded bar that he was a threat to her new found equilibrium.
And that scared the hell out of her. She didn’t want anything to do with werewolves anymore. Their pack laws. Their aggression. Their bloodthirsty pack mentality and their total disregard for her feelings.
“Apparently you know where I work, and that would be more than I want you to know. Now run along and howl at something.” She turned on her heel and took one step toward the parking lot. She would not give in to her baser instincts. Nope. Not happening. Not even with the night of the full moon coming up fast.
She didn’t hear him come up behind her. He spun her around, his tongue halfway down her throat before she had time to react. His arms were every bit as strong as they looked, catching her when her knees buckled at the unexpected warmth blossoming in her belly.
What the hell? Her body had never reacted this way before, never betrayed her so blatantly. Want and need sent curls of heat racing through her veins. Damn. This couldn’t be good, no matter how good it felt. She relaxed into his embrace, letting him think she’d surrendered.
He hesitated for a moment, drawing his head back to stare at her with narrowed eyes. Distrust and something else lurked in their icy blue depths. He didn’t trust her sudden capitulation. Smart man.
$Wolf$. Smart wolf.
Apparently his lust overrode his caution and he pulled her up hard against him. She could feel the thick length of his cock pressing hard against her belly.
Lust seemed to be running rampant tonight. Moisture gathered at the apex of her thighs, as if her body expected her to give in and let this mutt have his way with her.
“I’ve never been referred to as a mutt before.” He mumbled the words against her lips, not bothering to lift his head. “I think I might be insulted.”
She jerked away from him. Not that she got far, his arms were like bands of friggin’ steel. His eyes were darker now, the color of the sky just before a storm rolled in. “I didn’t say that out loud.”
A wry smile quirked the corner of his mouth. “Then how did I manage to hear you?”
Good question. One that sent the lust packing faster than it had arrived. Vague whispered myths of bonded pairs being able to communicate telepathically teased the edge of her memory. Crap! This just got better and better!

All she could hope for when the dust settled from the bombshell of the biggest lie she’d ever told was that what was broken could be repaired. Christina had a plan all along from the minute she found her time was running out—the littlest wild rose would have a family. At all costs.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
It’s time for this identical triplet to meet her match.
Can a wild child ever really be tamed? Growing up in foster care has made Roxie Cannon tough and self-reliant, but being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. She’s finally found family. Is it time she met her match?
Roxie should be on top of the world. She’s formed bonds with identical sisters she never knew she had, and she’s buying the bar she’s managed for years. The feisty brunette has everything she’s ever wanted. Almost. Two things still elude her: answers to why her family was split apart, and a man with whom she can share her passion. Seeing her sisters with their mates has made her aware she’s still the odd one out. Yet that all starts to change when a rough-and-tumble hottie from her past walks in The Ruckus’ door.
Billy knows trouble when he sees it, and Roxie is commotion in motion. They’ve always set sparks off one another. This time, he’s promised himself he won’t get burned. Yet things get serious when he learns of Roxie’s quest to find her parents. Can he save his hot-blooded lover from being hurt? Or will the wounded little girl inside her never trust him again?
An Excerpt From: ROXIE
© Copyright KIMBERLY DEAN, 2014
She was pulling out her keys when she remembered he wasn’t exactly sober. Turning, she found him right behind her. Her shoulder brushed against his chest and her hip bumped against his leg.
He was warm, deliciously so after being out in the cold for so long.
Pulling back, she leaned against the door to her apartment. “Do you need me to call you a cab?”
His expression turned ironic. “Well, that’s blunt.”
She had to be. She wasn’t going to invite him to stay at her place. Absolutely was not going to . . .
He held up a key. “Charlie’s letting me stay downstairs. He said he’s got an apartment open until the first of the month.”
“Oh, right.” Yay, she thought sardonically. So she wouldn’t invite him inside, but he was going to be staying one floor down, in a bed not so far away. “The furnished one.”
“Is that a problem?”
She shook her head, and the blanket fell off her shoulder. “You don’t want to sleep on my hideaway, trust me.”
His expression was still fierce, but his touch was gentle as he wound one of her curls around his finger. “No, I don’t.”
Her knees wobbled. She needed to get inside and catch some sleep. The innuendo was getting to be too much.
She opened the door to her apartment. Stepping inside, she tossed the blanket and her pepper spray onto the sofa. “Good night, Billy. It was really good to see—”
She stopped short. Wing nuts and coattails, she sounded like frickin’ Miss Manners.
“Oh, to hell with it.”
Pushing away all her good intentions, she grabbed his jacket and yanked him to her. He was already moving her way, and he kicked the apartment door shut behind him. His mouth was hot and hungry when it came down on hers.
Roxie groaned at the contact. Oh, God. Sitting up there under the moonlight, talking with him like a rational adult had nearly driven her crazy. There was nothing rational about the way she felt for him. Nothing calm and composed.
But it was definitely adult.
“I’m staying until morning,” he said fiercely.
She nodded as he kissed fire down her throat. It was only a few hours. She could give him that long.
Good morning readers, thank you for being here for another wonderful party day. I will be leaving for sunday services and then work, but will return later to post further. This next post is also from my biography true crime anthology Twisted Love, 12 cases of love gone bad. Have a great day.
Blurb: When 4 year old Christopher Engle goes missing, neighbors are alerted by a foul odor which raises eyebrows.
Excerpt: With a population of 35,313 people, Lancaster, Ohio, the proud birthplace of many notable actors, authors, sports stars, and cartoonist was founded in 1800, and the famous merchant, trailblazer, pioneer and soldier, Ebenezer Zane incorporated it as a town in 1831. Like all cities, however, it was not immune to murder. In fact, Lancaster was the location of the worst murder of a child in the county’s history.
According to twenty-eight-year-old Christina Sims, she hesitated many times before turning in her older brother John Engle for the murder of his four-year-old son Christopher. Torn between her love for John, and Christopher, and doing what was right, the soft-spoken, slender blonde with dark-eyes, said she looked to Christ for guidance. After speaking with her minister, she made the devastating choice of walking into the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Department on July 9, 1991.
Christina recalled that while trailing the short, young dispatcher down the dark hall, she recalled her first meeting with one-year-old Christopher, who was not yet able to stand on his own. It did not take the stay-at-home mom long to realize why the love-starved toddler was behind in his learning.
She described Christopher as her favorite nephew, and said, “All Christopher wanted was to be held and loved.” Christina explained that she occasionally visited her brother and sister-in- law, Edna Mae, and their growing brood. She described Christopher as “pitiful” and told how his siblings were mean to him, and hit him regularly. “He was such a loving child,” she said. When she visited the family in the summer of 1989, she asked where Christopher was. Christina claimed, her brother said the child had gone to live with his maternal grandmother in Columbus, but then he started to cry. He said Christopher was in a better place.
