    Cover Reveal— STEALING HOME by Karla Doyle

    I’ve been sitting on the cover for STEALING HOME for what seems like forever, but it’s finally time to let the rest of the world enjoy it too. Ta-da! Isn’t it gorgeous and drool-worthy? Go ahead and lick the screen, I won’t tell. 😉

    Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00020]


    When Paige’s latest attempt at happily-ever-after with a nice guy tanks, she decides to quit fighting her destiny. She craves bad boys. Men who deliver short-term, panty-melting excitement, not reliability and settling down. If she’s going to embrace her true nature, who better to start with than the dark-haired, tattooed ballplayer whose cocky attitude gives her more thrills than any steady boyfriend ever has…

    Alex had major league plans for his life until it threw him an unexpected and unwelcome curve ball. Switching gears to pursue his other passion was a rough road, but things are good—aside from his MIA muse. When a chance meeting with a blonde firecracker stirs his creative juices—and more—Alex is game to see where their chemistry leads. Trouble is, his potential Miss Right thinks she’s only capable of playing the field.


    Stealing Home is a full-length standalone novel, and it’s hot, hot, hot!

    Scheduled for release in ebook & print June 18, 2015.

    DECEPTION_hi-res by Morgan Pielli jpeg

     When Demons threaten Regency London, only a Lady can stop them.

    Lillian Dellacourt is beautiful, refined and absolutely lethal. She’s also the most feared and merciless demon hunter in The Company. She’s come a long way from the penniless seamstress’s daughter sold to the highest bidder, and it wasn’t by trusting a man, let alone an exiled Marquis with more on his mind than slaying the hellspawn. . .

    For Dorian Lambert, Marquis de Montalembert, being sent to keep track of Lillian is no mean task. He’s wanted the fiery vixen since he first heard of her five years ago. But wooing the lady while fighting the demon uprising is no easy feat, especially when the lady’s tongue is as sharp as the Japanese sai blades she favors for eviscerating the spawn of hell.

    These two will have to learn to trust each other fast, because the demon master is back, and he’s planning to turn Edinburgh into a living hell…

    Cover Reveal and a Giveaway—CHERRY ON TOP

    It’s here! Cover reveal day for CHERRY ON TOP! I knew as soon as I saw this image, many months ago, that it was the one for this book. I love the romantic sexiness and the playful expressions on both their faces—it’s a perfect fit for Ben & Lindsay’s story.

    Cherry on Top by Karla Doyle

    Cherry on Top

    Close to Home Series ~ Book 3

    Lindsay could write the book on falling in love—with the wrong guy. From bad boys to a married man, she’s made one bad choice after another, gravitating toward men destined to hurt her. Except at her brother’s wedding. This time, she’s drawn to a good guy—the pastor. Ben is handsome, single, and definitely interested. But with her past mistakes, maybe Ben is too good…

    After two tours in the Middle East, Ben returned home needing peace and purpose. He found it as pastor of a laid-back, small-town church. There’s just one thing missing from his life—love. In a community of a couple thousand, his options are limited. Until Lindsay comes to town for a wedding. Sparks fly between them, but she’s skittish. If Ben wants her to stay, he’ll have to convince her that he’s more than a man of God—he’s the right man for her.

    Guest Post – Cover Reveal – Tina Christopher

    Today I’m helping reveal the pretty new cover for my friend Tina Christopher’s upcoming release, DIRIGIBLES ARE FOREVER. Isn’t it awesome?



    Dirigibles Are Forever is a super-sexy Christmas novella set in an alternative Victorian London, filled with adventure, secrets and fun. Available December 9th from Loose-Id.


    Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.

    Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.

    When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.

    But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?

    Read the first chapter on the Loose-Id website.

    Cover Reveal – GIFT WRAPPED

    It’s time! I love cover reveals, they’re so fun & exciting. Especially when they’re mine. 😉

    So, here it is… the cover for my upcoming holiday release, GIFT WRAPPED, coming this November to steam up your e-reader!

    Gift Wrapped book cover



    After catching her boyfriend cheating the week before Christmas, Brinn is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. So when she looks into the eyes of a last-minute shopper after closing on Christmas Eve, she’s sarcastic rather than sympathetic. But Brinn is ever the good girl and her conscience wins out. She offers the handsome stranger ten minutes to select a gift and ends up with a present of her own—a date. On Christmas Eve.

    Davis hates Christmas. Especially this year, since a neighborhood heist liberated him of his hard-earned belongings and the few gifts he’d purchased. But the robbery led him to a cute store manager with a sense of humor, smokin’ body and no plans for the evening. Mistletoe might be in order after all.

    Their Christmas Eve date is like gift-wrapped, sexy satisfaction. But the best gifts keep on giving, and one naughty night may not be enough—for either of them.

    I’d love to hear what you think of the cover, the blurb, the excerpt… I hope you’re as excited about Davis & Brinn’s fun holiday romance as I am! 🙂

    Cover Reveal – CLOUDBURST ICE MAGIC by Siobhan Muir

    Seems all my friends have pretty new covers to show off this week. 🙂 Today, I’m happy to share Siobhan Muir‘s newest, for her soon-to-be-released CLOUDBURST ICE MAGIC.

    Isn’t that stunning? Definitely catches my eye!

    And here’s the blurb…


    CLOUDBURST ICE MAGIC releases August 11th. Until then, Siobhan has provided us with a little taste of the story.  🙂

    Excerpt of Cloudburst Ice Magic

    Sleet laughed, saluted, and was gone in a hissing sprinkle of snowflakes. The desert air sucked up the moisture before it hit the ground and took Zach’s smile with it. He shoved the last of the totes into the back of his truck and closed the tailgate, grateful Sleet didn’t push too hard. He wasn’t ready to tell anyone of his impulsive choice to mate with Lily.

    Speaking of which, why hasn’t she answered my texts? He checked his phone again to be sure, but he found a big ol’ nothing. He shook his head and sprayed a little shower of water around him. Crap. Nevada had launched into its warmer spring temperatures and he needed to make himself scarce in the lowlands or get out of Dodge entirely. He locked the empty cabin and glanced at his phone again, willing it to beep with an incoming text or email.

    A chill ran up his back from his gut and all his crystalline hair rose to stand on end. Something’s wrong. He inhaled the balmy spring air and scanned the softly dripping world around him, but everything appeared in order. Still, the eerie feeling of dissonance rattled the crystals of his hair and he gritted his teeth as he strode for the driver’s side of his truck. What is it?

    His phone rumbled with a red hawk’s scream, the sound he’d chosen for emergency contact texts. He jerked it out of his pocket and touched the screen.

    Snowed in bad. Whiteout conditions w/hikers on the slopes. Miss you and love you. Lily.

    Zach’s stomach flipped over and dropped to his boots. He punched her number immediately and listened to it go straight to voicemail. “Dammit, Lily! Where are you?”

    He took a deep breath and thought back to where she’d said she worked. Cloudburst Resort in Cloudburst, Colorado. He slid into the driver’s seat and punched the maps icon on his phone. Cloudburst showed in the mountain range in the southwestern corner of the state.

    Zach nodded. Too much time between Vegas and Cloudburst if he took his truck, but he needed his gear with him. Gritting his teeth, Zach started the engine and called a buddy of his who played in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

    “Snow, my man, what’s up?”

    “Cade, I need a favor.” Zach headed down the hill toward the freeway.

    “Anything, man. What’s going on?” The mellow voice on the other end sharpened.

    “Do you know any Ice Demons in the mountains of southwestern Colorado?”

    “Sure. Got a couple of friends there. Why?”

    “Can you find out if they’ve got any Spring Flings going on right now? I’m on my way, but I’m still about nine hours out.”

    “Whoa, man. Are you moving this direction?”

    “Yep, but I gotta get there ASAP. Can you find out and call me when you know?”

    “Yeah, sure. Not a problem.” Cade paused. “What’s the big rush, Snow?”

    Zach sighed as he hit the turn-off to the 215. How much would Cade understand? “You know I’m in Search & Rescue for the humans, right?”

    “Yeah, I’d heard you have a thing for them.” Cade chuckled. “What of it?”

    “I got news that some humans are caught in some heavy weather in southwestern Colorado and one of them’s a friend of mine. If I could, I’d be out on the slopes right now. But I can’t enter someone else’s territory without an intro.” Ice Demons tended to be territorial unless visitors went through the proper introductory channels. “Do you think you could have someone meet me in Cloudburst, Colorado as soon as I get there? I gotta get these folks out, Cade. It’s important.”

    “I’ll see what I can do, Snow. Just promise me you’ll tell me the full story when you get here.”

    “Will do.”

    “I’ll text or call you when I got something.”

    “Thanks, Cade.” Zach floored the accelerator past the Aliante exit.

    “Not a problem. Talk to you soon.” The phone clicked off. Zach dropped it on the seat and slowed down before the cops got too interested in him. He’d have to send texts to Sleet and his folks, but he could do that when he reached a rest stop.

    Waiting at the light to get onto I-15, he tapped a quick text to Lily.

    Hang in there. I’m coming. Z

    He prayed to Freya Lily would receive it. All he had to do was get to Colorado. He just hoped he’d arrive in time.

    Cover Reveal! CUP OF SUGAR

    Today’s the day! I’ve been chomping at the bit to reveal the cover for my next release, CUP OF SUGAR, and here it is!

    Cup of Sugar by Karla Doyle

    Coming Soon! Available in ebook & print February 28, 2014


    CUP OF SUGAR is a hot-and-sweet contemporary romance with a healthy dose of humor. I loved watching Conn & Nia’s courtship — I hope you’ll enjoy it too.  ♥


    Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…

    For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.
