THE RAKE’S HANDBOOK (Including Field Guide) by Sally Orr

The definitive guide to seduction…


The Rake’s Handbook was written on a dare, and soon took the ton by storm. Now its author, Ross Thornbury, is publicly reviled by the ladies—who are, of course, forbidden to read the handbook—but privately revered by the gentlemen. Unfortunately, Ross’s notoriety is working against him and he flees London painfully aware of the shortcomings of his own jaded heart.


Spirited young widow Elinor Colton lives next to Ross’s country estate. She’s appalled not only by his rakish reputation, but also by his progressive industrial plans. Elinor is sure she is immune to Ross’s seductive ways. But he keeps coming around…impressing her with his vision for England’s future and stunning her with his smiles.


How does one resist the man who wrote the manual on love?

ATE 850x1300AFTER THE END by Sara York

With international flights crisscrossing the skies on an hourly basis, are we ever really safe?

When a strain of the Ebola virus mutates; it spreads quickly leaving the medical community shattered. People are dropping in the streets and life, as most know it, comes to an end. Two city dweller survivors, Dean and William, are forced to flee the city and live in the wilderness—where dangers lurk behind every tree and in every valley. Not everyone alive after the end is good, and William and Dean are faced with challenges that would bring many to their knees.

Growing up in the hood of Atlanta, Dean knows how to overcome trials, but he knows nothing of love. Can he sustain a relationship with William, or will his doubts end them before they even have a chance?

From birth William has had a silver spoon in his mouth and two in each hand, but the end brings him face to face with reality where he has to take responsibility for his life. After the end, money has no meaning, and life is lived on the edge.

Join William and Dean after the end and find out how close to the edge they come.


After he finished, both of them satisfied, William pulled him up and brushed his lips over Dean’s. The kiss was charged with sensuality and caring. At first Dean stilled, wondering what the hell had gotten into William. They’d kissed before, but not like this. Not with William’s hands caressing his neck and face, and certainly not with the passion he felt flowing from the guy. He was a booty call to William, nothing more. The kiss spoke of love and caring, not hooking up and getting off.
Surprised, Dean tried to process the sensations and stop his feelings from running over his good senses. This wasn’t real. They’d changed a little since those first few times, but he wouldn’t acknowledge the difference. Speaking about the changes would mean they’d have to confront the truth, and no matter how many times they got off together, William would never really be his.
“I’ve left you some money under my pillow,” William whispered.
Pain lanced Dean’s heart. No matter how gentle William was with his kisses, he’d never really respect him. Dean shook his head, and tried like hell to hang onto his anger. “I can’t accept your money.”
 “Take it. It’s not for sex. Okay, I…hell, I know about your parents and your house. I can’t….”
Heat filled Dean, his whole body burning like never before. “What the hell have you done?”
“Get real, I’m not going to ask you to be my…mistress isn’t the right word, but I want you around, you know, living close to where I do. I can’t offer more than that right now, but dammit, we’re good together.”
Dean stepped away from William and scowled. “I’m not some whore you can buy.”
“I didn’t say that. I know you’re smart. Hell, everyone at Blackwell knows you’re the smartest guy in school. But I want you.”
He shook his head violently, the food sitting in his stomach threatened to come up. “I can’t take your money.”
“Dean, please. I want you to be able to eat this week.”
Anger flashed. “My God, you don’t get it, do you?”
“No, I sure as hell don’t. Just take the fucking money. My parents give me a thousand dollars a week and I don’t have to pay for anything. I have cash and it’s disgusting. I don’t want it all, but I want you in my life.”
Dean started pulling on his pants. As he tugged them over his thighs he realized  he’d forgotten his underwear. He almost left them in his haste to get away, but William was right. He was fucking poor. If he left the underwear here, he’d only have three pair that didn’t have holes in them.
William grabbed his shoulders as he stood from retrieving his underwear. He was pressed up against the wall and held there. Dean wouldn’t meet William’s gaze.
“Please, don’t be this way. Don’t end it like this,” William begged.
Dean stilled, his heart thudding. “You know it’s going to end soon.”
“We can work something out,” William pled. His brows bunched together and his eyes were full of desperation. The man looked adorable and heartbreakingly bad for him all at the same time. Dean would lose himself, his self-worth, and his future if he stayed.

In the past year, the music scene has changed a little. Yes, I write books, not music, but for me music is integral to writing. I write better when I have music on. I listen almost all day as I’m typing away. My tastes differ from one day to the next, so I have a lot of different artists on my iPod.


Some of my favorites are bands are Green Day, Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragon, Breaking Benjamin, but Eli Lieb and Steve Grand have as many listens as those bands. If you haven’t heard of Eli Lieb or Steve Grand, do yourself a favor and take a listen, watch their videos on YouTube, and if you enjoy what you hear, support them by purchasing a song or two.


My favorite of the new songs out by these two artists is Eli Lieb’s Zeppelin. The music video tells a story of two guys hanging out, falling in love, and listening to the radio. It’s a perfect song to write to because it captures the feeling of falling in love and having someone special to just be with.


My next favorite is Steve Grand’s Stay. I sometimes put songs on infinite repeat while writing. Stay is one of the songs that gets played over and over again. The songs have to create a certain feel to be a repeat song, and Stay has that feel for me.


Maybe you can see it in my books. When I was writing Without You, Breaking Benjamin was on repeat. For Not That Type of Guy, it was Creep by Radiohead. With After The End, it was Stay by Steve Grand, and Young Love and Zeppelin by Eli Lieb.


Steve Grand is about to release his first album, and I can’t wait to find new songs to write to. Maybe he’ll inspire me to write another fun series, or something more like A Southern Thing.


I hope you are enjoying After The End with Dean and William. They are both special guys.

Dean nodded and closed his eyes before opening them so he could look at  William. “I still don’t know what love is, but I have deep feelings for you that I don’t understand. I can’t call it love yet since I don’t understand it, but I feel things for you that I’ve never felt for anyone else.”

“That’s close enough for me.”

“You deserve more than close enough, you deserve everything.”

Pool of Crimson

(The Blushing Death #1)

by Suzanne M. Sabol

Publisher: Soul Mate Publishing (http://www.soulmatepublishing.com)


Killing vampires is easy. Trusting one will be the hardest thing Dahlia Sabin has ever done.

Dahlia has lived a lonely existence as a killer of the undead. Known as The Blushing Death to those that fear her, Dahlia uncovers a plot by Columbus’s Master Vampire, Ethan. He intends to raise a demon from the depths of hell to destroy the city, cement his power, and take control.

In her pursuit to stop a demon from manifesting, Dahlia sinks deeper into the city’s supernatural underworld and discovers that vampires are not only deadly; one in particular could be dangerous to her very soul and her heart. Patrick, the Master vampire’s second-in-command with dark penetrating eyes and a cool, deadly sophistication, can’t stay away and Dahlia can’t tell him no. There’s something that neither of them knows, Ethan wants Dahlia’s unleashed power for himself and is willing to do anything to get it.

Dahlia is in a race against time to send the demon back to hell, at war with her better judgment, trusting a dark and intriguing vampire with his own agenda, while struggling to save her own neck. As the portal to hell opens, Dahlia has only herself to rely on in order to survive, if she can . . .

Also be sure to check out more action in the second book of the series with Dahlia Sabin, MIDNIGHT ASH.
