ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Delilah Devlin

Until recently, award-winning romance author Delilah Devlin lived in South Texas at the intersection of two dry creeks, surrounded by sexy cowboys in Wranglers. These days, she’s missing the wide-open skies and starry nights but loving her dark forest in Central Arkansas, with its eccentric characters and isolation—the better to feed her hungry muse!

For Delilah, the greatest sin is driving between the lines, because it’s comfortable and safe. Her personal journey has taken her through one war and many countries, cultures, jobs, and relationships to bring her to the place where she is now—writing sexy adventures that hold more than a kernel of autobiography and often share a common thread of self-discovery and transformation.

Delilah Devlin is a prolific and award-winning author of erotica and erotic romance with a rapidly expanding reputation for writing deliciously edgy stories with complex characters. Whether creating dark, erotically-charged paranormal worlds or richly descriptive historical stories that ring with authenticity, Delilah Devlin “pens in uncharted territory that will leave the readers breathless and hungering for more…” (Paranormal Reviews) Ms. Devlin has published over 100 erotic stories in multiple genres and lengths.

She is published by  Atria/Strebor, Avon, Berkley, Black Lace, Cleis Press, Ellora’s Cave, Harlequin Spice, Kensington, Running Press, and Samhain Publishing.

Melissa Schroeder

From an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children.

Cat Johnson

It all started in first grade when Cat Johnson won the essay contest at Hawthorne Elementary School and got to ride in the Chief of Police’s car in the Memorial Day Parade…and the rest, as they say, is history. As an adult, Cat generally tries to stay out of police cars and is thrilled to be writing for a living. She has been published under a different name in the Young Adult genre, but released her first romance in 2006. 
Today, she is a NY Times & USA Today best-selling, award-winning author of contemporary romance and contracted with Kensington and Samhain Publishing. She’s also sponsored real live bull riding cowboys.

JM Madden

I don’t like to talk about myself so this will be short and sweet.
I am a wife and mother of two. I currently stay home to take care of the farm and family, which I love. I was a deputy sheriff in Ohio for nine years, and I found myself tapping that experience as I wrote Second Time Around. No, I didn’t tackle and cuff my husband, although there was that time in K-mart… Anyway, it was quite a change going from writing technical reports with diagrams, witness statements, inventories etc that would stand up in court to writing contemporary romance. I’ve always written, though, and it was always a dream to do something with that huge, leaning stack of spiral-bound notebooks.
Second Time Around was my first release, and Love on the Line is my eighth. I thank you so much for taking an interest in my work…
Stay tuned. There’s a lot more coming

Excerpt:

Her Forever Hero- J.M. Madden

She was about to spew.

Grif watched uptight and luscious Kendall Herrington try to control her nausea in the midst of the board meeting around her. She had done pretty well for the last few minutes, but he’d memorized every expression on her cool, smooth face, and knew she had about reached her breaking point.

Now, the conundrum was, did he help her out by interrupting this volatile meeting so that she didn’t have to? He could slip up behind her, whisper into the delicate curve of her ear some falsely important message and escort her out of the room. It would look legitimate and would save her image. She could step into her office, use her private bathroom and these stuffed shirts would be none the wiser.

Her full lips compressed and her pale eyes glazed over as the man to her right tried to hammer home his point.

No more time.

Stepping forward, deliberately in front of the shark beside her, he leaned down into her space. Her wide green eyes fluttered shut as he whispered into her ear, “You should probably step out before you compromise yourself.”

Her eyes opened and she gave him a sharp look, but nodded her head. Pushing to her feet, she addressed the table. “Gentlemen, excuse me for a moment please. I have an issue I need to deal with.”

A couple of them shook their heads, as if they couldn’t believe there was anything of more importance than what they were talking about. Her father shot her a look, both concerned and aggravated, but nodded her away.

As she walked the length of the table to the opposite end of the room, Grif hoped he was the only one who noticed how shaky she was on her too-tall boots. As soon as the door closed behind them, he gripped her elbow in his hand to help her down the hallway, but she pulled away. “I’m fine, just a little nauseous. Must have been something I ate.”

Right. Something you ate. Or was it something you screwed? The woman had to be delirious if she didn’t realize she was pregnant.

The staff at Herrington Limited were bustling, knowing that every major stockholder in the company sat in the boardroom just a few feet away for the quarterly meeting. Nobody said a word to the boss’s daughter as she headed purposefully down the hallway to her office. Grif fell in a step behind her, eyes roving over everything yet focused on her. Kendall’s secretary was not at her desk when they walked in, so she crossed to her office. As soon as she made it inside, she all but ran to the private bathroom, slamming the heavy oak door shut behind her. Grif let her have her privacy, though it hurt him to hear her retching inside. Her phone started to ring, but he let voicemail grab it, moving to stand at the wide windows across the way.

Snow swirled outside, calling for him to come out and play. With the way things were going in the boardroom, though, he’d be here for several more hours before he would be able to relax.

And did he really have the right to play if Kendall was pregnant?

The toilet flushed in the bathroom and he heard water running into the sink. She would walk out of that bathroom beautiful and as put together as always, as if the last ten minutes had never happened. It was one of the things he admired about her, that iron spirit.

It was also one of the things he hated.

Vail was one of the most beautiful cities in the country, maybe even the world, and she wouldn’t even look out the window. If it didn’t have a spreadsheet or prospectus attached to it, she wouldn’t give it a glance.

The door opened and she stepped out.

Grif couldn’t even tell she’d been sick; the only indication a slight narrowing of her pale eyes. Her long, blond hair had been wrapped into a damn knot low on her neck, away from her face. He hated those things, because it was the only way he’d seen her wear her hair here. Only once had he ever seen it down. It had hung in a mess of unbelievable curls almost down to her waist.

The knots she tamed her hair into did highlight the perfection of her bone structure. Women spent millions chasing the high cheek-boned, lean-jawed, full-lipped look Kendall had made her career from, but didn’t appreciate. She had been a runway model in every country of the world, but her passion was the family business. Real estate. And timber.

He shook his head.

“Something wrong, Mr. Parks?”

Her cool whiskey voice broke into his thoughts and brought his gaze to hers. She stared at him, as if daring him to bring up the incident in the bathroom. “No, ma’am. Glad to see you looking more like yourself.”

Her eyes flickered and looked away. She smoothed her elegant hands over the sleek column of her black slacks, adjusting the fit, and took a deep breath. “Well, then, we’ve wasted enough time. Let’s get back to it.”

Grif almost laughed out loud. The way she said the words it sounded like she’d left the meeting and puked her guts out to appease a whim of his.

Whatever.
