Release Date: October 15th
Publisher: Firetrail Publishing.


She wants her past hidden…

Amy Kincaid is running from her controlling ex-husband, who will stop at nothing to find her. With a new identity and a new job as a housekeeper, she just wants to be left alone to raise her daughter. Then Eddie Fitzgerald rolls into town and turns her world upside down.

He’s in the business of exposing the truth…

Eddie Fitzgerald, L.A.P.D.'s finest, lives for his job and nothing else, until he decides to take a break at the family summer home and is held at gunpoint by the most annoying, sassiest woman to ever cross his path. But something is off about Amy, and the more he learns about her, the more he’s convinced she’s a fugitive.

When her past catches up to her, Amy has no choice but to trust Eddie. Unfortunately, Eddie has demons of his own, and struggles with the decision to protect her or uphold the law.

The truth takes them down a deadly path, and only love can save them.

A TEASER: Man of Her Dreams

Getting to know Leslie and Jay can be embarrassing. Com’er and listen in on the two of them in Jay’s bedroom. Shhh…they won’t even know we’re here.


     Jay threw himself across the bed. “Home, sweet, home,” he said, rolling onto his back. 
     Leslie hovered beside the bed, her curvy silhouette outlined in the shadows.  A slice of moonlight seeped though a crack in the curtain and shined upon her face.  She swiped a forearm across her head as she glanced down at him. “Whew, I’m glad that’s over,” she said, and tucked a stand of hair behind her ear. “You’re quite a handful.”
     “So I’ve been told.” He smiled and reached for her.
     She shook her head. “Whatever,” she said taking a few steps back. “I probably should go.” 
     “Relax. What’s your hurry?” 
     Leslie tilted her face and stared. “You’re talking awful straight for someone in your condition. How much did you say you had to drink, anyway?”
     “I didn’t say.” 
     He rested on his elbow, “Come on, stay and talk to me. Please?” He patted a spot beside him. “Tell me again why you were at the Bull Pen?”
     Leslie sat stiffly on the edge of the bed for a minute and then flopped backwards across the mattress. “I told you already.  I was looking for you.”
     Their skin touched when she lay beside him on the bed. Her hair fanned out beneath her and she gazed upward to the ceiling fan. The golden locks of hair smelled like sweet perfume and he was thankful for the darkness. 
     “Looking for me? Any particular reason?” For her to go into the Bull Pen meant one of two things, either because she wanted him, or because she needed him. A big difference. 
     During the few months he’d lived in Sleeping Falls he’d grown used to being needed for things, like fixing an air conditioner in ninety degree temperatures at ten-thirty at night. He didn’t mind because with the job came a lot a satisfaction. People relied on him. It made him feel… worthy.   
     But the idea of Leslie wanting him definitely messed with his head. Left him curious…and hopeful.
     She rolled onto her side, reached up and stroked his cheek. “I’ve got a confession.”
     “Let me get my collar.” He grinned as he grabbed the bed pillow to stuff behind his head. 
     “I’m serious, Jay.”
     “So am I. You think I’m a saint. But honestly, the direction of my thoughts is purely sinful.”
     “I had no idea Madame Luella was your mother. The way you pass yourself off as perfect, I was beginning to think you didn’t even have one.”
     “Everyone has a mother.”
     “Yeah, well, for all I know you were crafted out of steel like those damned yard ornaments. Hard and unbending!”
     Despite his aching disappointment, he still wanted her.  “No sense denying that fact,” he said and grabbed her hand to place it on his hard erection. “I don’t know what kind of thrills you’re looking for, Leslie. Or if everything’s just a game to you. But I’ll play.” 
     Surprisingly, her hand fingers curved over him, her fingers softly massaging the ache between his legs. With a groan, he rolled onto his side. The need to feel her skin against his sent a surge of heat through him.
     Passion scorched like fire in his veins, flames so fierce he could hear his own heartbeat pounding in his ears. He buried his face alongside her neck, dropping kisses from her earlobe to the delicate curve of her shoulder as his hands slid beneath her shirt. The silkiness of her skin teased his fingers and he probed beneath her bra and cupped her breasts. 
     “You’d better decide quickly if you’re staying or not. I can’t guarantee how much longer I’ll play nice.”
     Leslie’s arms came up around him. “What can you guarantee, Jay?”
     “A damned good time,” he said, and rolled on top, pinning her to the mattress.

MEET: Author Teresa Blue

Welcome Author Teresa Blue to my blog. Yesterday, we revealed the cover of her new release, Man of her Dreams, now available on e-book. Today, we get to learn more about her.

Welcome, Teresa.

I’ve always been a reader but when I moved thousands of miles away from home, I became a writer, too. My mother probably received a letter or card daily from me. I was beyond homesick. Being a newlywed in the military can be lonely and I was already reading as many books as I could afford. So I started writing my own as a diversion to occupy my time. 

Once the kids came, I put the notebook away. But I continued to read every romance I could get my hands on. The desire to write was still there and my time was limited. I wrote snippets of things, like poetry or short stories. The more I wrote, the stronger the urge grew. Writing became something I couldn’t stay away from. I had to write. Needed to be with the characters of my heart, the people running through my thoughts all day. They seemed so real! I couldn’t abandon them. I had to make certain they found happiness.

Man of her Dreams came about one summer while my hubby and I lived in a cramped travel trailer. Talk about closeness.... While he was busy contracting our new house, I did my best to be entertained. And I fell head over heels in love the hero in my story, a handsome, rugged type of guy who can fix anything, including Leslie’s car. And the sparks fly between these two. It was a joy watching the two of them overcome their troubles so they could be together.

Writing is a solitary endeavor so actually seeing my work up on the Crimson Romance or Amazon website is a thrill I won’t be forgetting.

Thanks, Tere.

Here's a little secret, something Teresa forgot to mention. Man of Her Dream is not the first book she released this year. In May, Wild Rose Press released her debut book, Night Bird, which also available as e-book on Amazon and B&N

This is an amazing, fast-paced, short story that will leave you hungering for more books by this author. Try it.

Travis Howland washes up on the shores of Lost Isle and into the arms of an angel. Known as the Night Bird, Emma Samson dedicates her afterlife to a solitary existence on Lost Isle, easing the passage of the dying. When she finds Travis weak and desperate, she gives him the only gift she has—a few more days to settle his affairs before his death. Sorely lacking in faith, Travis lives life with no thought for the future. When his lovely rescuer claims he has died, he can't believe it. He must warn his father that their ship was plundered by a greedy business partner, but only a leap of faith can save him. Together, Emma and Travis use his last few hours to avenge the traitorous deeds that torment him, and along the way discover that love can be found in any stage of life…even after death.

NEW RELEASE: Man of Her Dreams by Author Teresa Blue

 Ooh, I'm excited to introduce my dear friend and critique partner's new release:

Man of Her Dreams 
Teresa Blue
Published by crimson Romance
Release Date: August 13th 2012 on e-book. 
Paperback coming soon.

Don't you just loooove the cover. 

Now here's the blurb:

Leslie Stone stumbles upon her fiancĂ© cheating with the maid of honor just days before her wedding. Determined to put distance between them, she heads to the family’s cabin in Sleeping Falls, Michigan. Unfortunately, her car barely hit the city limits before breaking down. And with no money for repairs, the scrolling marquee above the biker bar advertising a mechanical bull riding contest seems like a perfect solution.

Jay Westfield learned at an early age to avoid women who chase the limelight. After all, his mother had been the star attraction in Harvey’s Traveling show. The minute Leslie clears the door in cut-offs and skimpy tank top, things heat up. She’s on a mission and he wants no part of it. The last thing he expects is the attraction he feels seeing her on the back of Old Iron.

Add in a squeezy rag doll named Mr. Jingles, the colorful antics of newfound friend, and the renowned tarot-card reader Madame Luella. Leslie’s about to discover in order to find the man of her dreams she must be willing to believe in magic.

Contemporary Romance
Sensuality Level: Sensual

For the rest of the week, you'll get to meet this amazing author, see her other published works, read fun excerpts from her Man of Her Dreams and deleted scenes.
