Whoâ€™s on top?
Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreamsâ€”whether itâ€™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 heartâ€¦
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 rulesâ€”until he meets Tilda. Heâ€™s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, heâ€™s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesnâ€™t come with a guaranteeâ€¦
From the Starred Review in Publisher’s Weekly: “With exquisite skill, Calhoun melds erotic heat and intense emotions in the second Irresistible contemporary romance…Calhounâ€™s intelligently handled characters, perfect pacing, and smooth plotting elevate familiar themes to the heights of enjoyable entertainment.”
From RT Magazine: “…this story is something special. … [Calhoun] seduces with detail, making the simplest interaction something powerful and memorable…. As a result, characters who initially appear inaccessible become deeply complex, intellectual, and wonderfully empathetic people who deserve the happiness they crave.”

2015 has been aÂ crazy fabulousÂ year so far. I’m delighted to formally announce two new sales!
First, I’ve sold three books and three novellas to St. Martin’s Press! Each super sexy novella will feature aÂ deliciously alpha male Navy SEAL and the woman who turns his world upside down. The plan is to release them back to back in February, March, and April, 2016. Then, in June, 2016 I’ll begin a new contemporary romantic suspense series. The first book is tentatively titled UNDER THE SURFACE, and features a former cocktail waitress turned bar owner, and the undercover detective tasked with protecting her from a dangerous drug lord.
Second, add May 15, 2015 to your release day calendars, because my Cosmopolitan Red Hot Read called WORKING WITH HEAT will release that day! The story is set in London’s East End, and features Milla Jackson,Â a footloose social media sensation who falls for Charlie Tanner, her best friend and a reclusive glass artist with secrets to hide. I had an absolute blast writing this novella. It’s fun, fast-paced, and sexy, and I can’t wait for you to read it.
As a reminder, my Irresistible series with Berkley Heat/Intermix continues this year. THE LISTÂ comes out tomorrow! (Tuesday, March 3, 2015). Publishers Weekly gave THE LIST a wonderful Starred Review you can read here.Â EVENING STORM releases in August, and the next book in the series, THE MUSE, comes out in December, continuing the stories begun in AFTERNOON DELIGHT, and TRANSCENDENT.
Thanks so much for your continued readership and support! I hope you’re all having a fabulous 2015!
