In Fair Brighton (Star-Crossed Mafia #1)
by Elena Kincaid | Interview

Q: Where did you get your inspiration for the Star-Crossed Mafia series? How are the books tied together?

I've always loved Romeo and Juliet and when my two main characters popped into my head, the two of them reminded me of a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, although my couple does not meet the same tragic end. The series will continue with the star-crossed theme, and the characters will all somehow be connected through these rival mob families from Brooklyn. I've already introduced the readers to my next two leading men in book one.

First Fall
by Zaide Bishop | Interview


Just who is sleeping with whom? Bianca Castillo is tangled up in love, lust, hate, revenge, heartbreak along with the five men and four women who share her polyamorous life, Los Angeles style. They're not above wading into each other's drama, wallowing in each other's misery, offering unsolicited advice or swapping romantic partners. The sex is hot, the lust hotter and the jealousy scathing in this tale of personal evolution where everyone has a stake in who ends up sleeping with whom and everyone wants to know who the mysterious stranger is that whisked Bianca away from it all. For Bishop Farrington the only question is if Bianca will leave it all behind for him. .

Submission is a beautiful thing.
The Wedding Date
One ex. One wedding. One little white lie. When Samantha Jenkins is asked to be the maid of honour at her best friend's wedding, she couldn't be happier. There are just three problems… 1) Sam's ex-boyfriend, Liam, will be the best man. 2) His new girlfriend is pregnant. 3) Sam might have told people she has a new man when she doesn't (see points 1 and 2 above) So, Sam does the only sensible thing available to her… and hires a professional to do the job. Actor Jake Porter is perfect for the role: single, gorgeous and cheap! Sam is certain it's the perfect solution: no strings, no heartbreak and hopefully no chance of being found out. But spending a week in the Scottish Highlands with Jake is harder than she imagined. He is the perfect boyfriend, charming, sexy and the hottest thing in a kilt since Outlander! And his dog Harry is quite possibly the cutest things Sam has ever seen! As the wedding draws closer, Jake plays his part to perfection and everyone believes he is madly in love with Sam. The problem is, Sam's not sure if Jake is acting anymore…

Breaking free of old traditions, discovering joy in new traditions. With a nonexistent social life and an overbearing father, Stephanie Ricci is desperate to escape the chaos her life has become: workouts, classes, work, more workouts, studying, and competitions. She's so burned out and numb she's taken to dangerous behavior just to feel anything. When she finds herself hog-tied in the desert by her father's archnemesis's son, she feels something she hasn't felt in years: alive. And she wants to feel it again. Shiro Muirin is immediately attracted to the dark, dangerous beauty who is the daughter of his father's archrival. He jumps at the chance to spend time with her, even if it means helping her run from her father. And when she's more than willing to be tied in his rope, he knows he's found the woman he's been looking for, and he refuses to be bound by their two families' tradition of hate. A Roxy Harte Quickie: For those times you need something short, but definitely not sweet. Sometimes a woman just needs to be bad. If you enjoyed this Roxy Harte quickly, look for future releases… of quick, tantalizing stories to feed your imagination. A Roxy Harte Quickie is a 25K-50K read. Each title is a Stand-Alone.
