Hypnotized to believe she’s his wife.
A troupe in England performs the history of a gem which features in legends of Shambhalla and Atlantis. The troupe’s hypnotist, Dune, has made them famous, especially his wife Susan, who is the star.

She wanted to avenge her sister; they were determined to keep her safe. Whose will would prove to be stronger?
Paige Wilcox has been lusting after the Carlson brothers since the first time she saw the two men enter the cops’ bar where she works. Problem is, neither man shows her the slightest interest-not until her sister is attacked at a club and they discover Paige posing as a submissive to draw out the assailant.
Troy and Trevor Carlson always found the feisty redhead attractive but steered clear of personal involvement since she showed no signs of being sexually submissive. Fear for Paige’s safety and a determination to keep her out of their investigation into a serial attacker prods Troy and Trevor to insist she complete the terms of an auction contract after they win the bid on her. Neither Paige nor the Carlson brothers are prepared for the streak of submissiveness she exhibits under their dual control.
Paige doesn’t fight her growing need for the two men and the alternative sex they introduce her to, but when they give no hints the feeling is mutual, she despairs of anything coming of the short-term relationship. It takes the reappearance of the man they were after and another threat to Paige to get all three on board with giving a committed, three-way relationship a try.
Publisher’s Note: This steamy contemporary ménage romance contains elements of power exchange. While it is book six of the Miami Masters series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

Freespirit Jenny needs to get her life together. Pragmatic Edan has his life together. Unicorn, meet mule…
Jenny Turner needs to get her life together. She knows it, everyone knows it, and she’s going to do it. Soon. But one night when she catches her sometimes “boyfriend” cheating on her in the middle of a summer camping trip, she winds up at a quaint inn on the north shore of Lake Haven that it closed. This presents a problem. She can’t go home–her dad has a new woman in his life and doesn’t need Jenny’s help anymore. She can’t go to her friends–they are too eager to hook Jenny up with a job. With no place else to go, Jenny must convince the gruff but very hot innkeeper–who is wearing a kilt for some reason–to let her a stay a night. . .or ten.
Edan Mackenzie is closing up shop and going home to Scotland. He came to America a few years ago to help a favorite aunt with her inn and to see part of the world. But he ended up working so much he saw nothing, his aunt died, his girlfriend left him, and suddenly, the usually pragmatic Edan doesn’t know who he was or what he’s doing with his life anymore. He’s come up with a firm plan and specific goals and has no patience for those who don’t do the same. But then a woman with shining blue eyes and long legs walks right past his CLOSED sign and into his life, and clearly has no idea what she’s doing.
At first, Edan is mystified. But then he notices that chatty Jenny is starting to make sense in a weird way, and maybe her plans for getting her life together are perhaps better than his, and maybe this pretty, daffy woman is exactly what Edan needed all along. Just maybe, two people struggling to figure out where life will take them stumble into each other in the right cozy inn at the right time. . .

Bloggers Beware: My Second DMCA Notice

My 2nd DMCA notice, and it doesn’t get any easier receiving one. This time it’s from WordPress, and again, I was shocked and angry and upset. To my knowledge, I hadn’t done anything wrong. And I maintain it.

What is it with authors and publishers that they’re so trigger happy to send DMCA notices to bloggers? Doesn’t anyone know you can email bloggers (if an email address is available) or comment on any post on their blog and they’ll receive the comment and respond accordingly?

Here’s the post in question:

The post was written in 2-thousand-freakin’-5!

I guess they can’t take criticism, which was the reason for the DMCA notice. I bet if I’d written a glowing review, I wouldn’t have received one.
