If you're in the mood for Lone Star Romance, check out THE DOCTOR WEARS A STETSON.
Jessie Devine can rebuild an engine blindfolded, but when it comes to men, she's all thumbs. When it comes to Cameron McCade, it's even worse. He stole her heart in high school, then left town for good. Now he's back and sparks are flying. Can they take up where they left off? Can Jessie risk her heart again? Repairing cars is no problem, but taming Cameron's restless spirit is something else entirely.
The atmosphere sizzled in the small office. Jessie stood like a statue, her eyes opened wide. "Why did you come back?" Her raspy voice held a note of accusation.
Cameron also heard anguish in her words. Was he causing Jessie pain? When all he wanted was to hold her in his arms, take her to bed and make love to her until the passion between them was spent?
In two long strides, he was beside her. She backed against the file cabinet. He stepped closer.
"You know why I'm back. We need to finish what we started seventeen years ago." He touched a finger to her cheek, traced the smooth line of her jaw, eased his hand behind her neck and pulled her to him. Her trembling intensified and she put her hands on his chest as if to ward him off.
He caught her hands and moved them over his heart. "Feel my heartbeat, Jess. It's beating for you." He pressed his body against hers. "Feel how much I want you. I tried to stay away, but God help me, I couldn't."
His mouth claimed hers in fierce desire. Jessie moaned, holding back only for a second, knowing deep down resistance was hopeless.
She couldn't help it . . . she kissed him back.
Life's too short NOT to love a Texan!!!

Under Witch Moon is finally categorized where it belongs--as a paranormal mystery or urban fantasy!
Adriel should have known that with a werewolf, it never stopped with just one body. She would have gone to the police after witnessing Dolores' death, but she wasn't certain the killer she saw was responsible for the other murders. Besides, the police didn't believe in werewolves, and they weren't going to believe she was a witch either so what could she tell them?
She kept her eyes and ears open while she tried to help her latest client escape the clutches of a voodoo witch, but things went from bad to worse when more bodies turned up. She was greatly relieved when she met White Feather, an undercover cop. Unfortunately, he wasn't convinced she was innocent of all wrong-doing.
It was going to take every spell she knew and a few she hadn't tried to solve the murders and stay alive.

If I could share some of the latest reviews Boomerang has received from readers in the UK, where it has sold more than 1300 copies in the last three months.
A good, involving, humerous (sic) read, 12 Feb 2011
Finally, a cheap kindle book that is well written, I was beginning to think the cheap books a ruse to make you buy kindles only to find the cheap stuff was rubbish and you had to buy the full price ones.
This book put my doubts to rest, the characters are well drawn and the plot although slightly off-beat works well. A good, humerous (sic) and involving read.
If you loved the dark humour of 'Fargo' or 'No Country For Old Men', this book is for you. Fast-paced, original, and well-written; 'Boomerang' ticks all the boxes. And at the price, it's a steal.
My husband once had a Gibson guitar which he loved dearly, and a Gibson features in the book, and so I had expected it to be something he'd like but I was truly delighted to find it an absolutely hilarious read for both of us. Boomerang has characters that enthralled and it is pacy and touching. Much enjoyed.
I really enjoyed this book. It felt like a ben elton one- only better written
A nice mixture of characters who you could picture in the bizarre situations described throughout the story.
Well worth buying

I just published my first eBook at the end of December. I'm an avid reader in a wide range of genres, but my novel is an adult paranormal romance. I'm currently working on the next book of my series and a paranormal YA novel.
I've always had an imagination and am told quite often that I live in my head. I had never thought about writing before until about a year ago when I was imaginng a story in my head and thought 'I should just start typing and write this down.' I didn't know where it would lead or if I'd even publish it, but about 6 months later I was finshed writing my story of 92,000 words and found Pubit. I was so excited I sent it to a professional editor, made little tweaks and then a month later I put it up for sale. It's been an exciting journey so far and I can't wait to do more.
I'm trying to figure out how to generate a sample download and hopefully that will entice more readers.
