Cover Reveals – AFTERNOON DELIGHT and THE LIST

I’ve been on vacation this week, and while I was gone, gorgeous covers for my next two releases – AFTERNOON DELIGHT (9/14) and THE LIST (3/15) showed up in my inbox! Both books are part of my new series with Berkley’s Heat and Intermix imprints, called the Irresistible series. I’m so excited about these books. They’re set in New York City, one of my favorite settings, and hearken back to previous works, including BREATH ON EMBERS (remember Tim, the FDNY EMS lieutenant? He’s getting his book!),  and the novellas in the Agony/Ecstasy anthology (THE LIST’s heroine is “Lady Matilda”, who is not a Lady, or a lady, but is a whole handful of trouble for FBI agent Daniel Logan). Here’s the cover and blurb for Afternoon Delight:


AfternoonDelight final

 

Sarah McCall, food truck co-owner and recentManhattan transplant, savors each moment of her new job—whether it’s refining the truck’s menu, learning the city, or spending afternoons in bed with the hot paramedic who’s fast becoming her favorite customer.

Tim Cannon spends his days sprinting from one emergency to the next. He eats like he works—at top speed—somewhere along the line he lost his ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Hooking up with Sarah is just another way to cope with the stress of his job, until their afternoon trysts coax Tim into enjoying everything he’s avoided. Can Tim learn to balance his job saving lives with the everyday delights that make life worth living? If anyone can teach him, it’s Sarah…

And here’s the cover and blurb for THE LIST:

TheList final

 

Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…

Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. He’s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…

September isn’t very far away. 😉 Until then, happy reading!

Interview/Upcoming Release

The wonderful writers who blog at Wonkomance decided to start a video podcast, and I was their first guest. You can see the replay here. It’s about an hour long, and includes a really well-thought out Q&A, some talk about hair, and me reading from a very safe-for-work portion of Uncommon Passion.

In other news, Afternoon Delight, my first Intermix release with Berkley will be out in September, 2014, just four short months away! This story revisits Lt. Tim Cannon of the FDNY EMS division (first featured in Breath on Embers). One gorgeous spring afternoon he meets Sarah, a new transplant to NYC, who’s opening a food truck with a friend. What starts off as a sexy competition turns complicated and emotional…you know, as these things do. 🙂 I had a great time writing this story, and I’m so excited it will be available so quickly The book is connected to three more upcoming releases I’m feverishly writing. I hope to be able to show off the covers for this book and the others in the series very soon!

In the meantime, happy reading and a very happy spring to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere!
