Synopsis:

As Director of The War Office, Stuart McKenzie, has proven himself capable of making difficult decisions in times of crisis and keeping government secrets safe. When he walks in on someone ransacking his study he quickly moves to apprehend them, only to be tossed on his back as the burglar escapes into the night. Cassie’s father has become a pawn in the fight against Napoleon. When the enemy kidnaps him, she will do anything it takes to get him back – including stealing government secrets from Stuart McKenzie, the Director of the War Office. When Cassie is caught, she reluctantly agrees to Mack’s assistance as there is something far more sinister going on. As Mack embarks on his mission, he will find that enemies are often closer than one would think and that sometimes your ally will come in the least likely form. When passion erupts between Mack and Cassie, they find their lives forever altered. But just as they believe their lives to be free of danger, a new threat is lurking about, promising to rip their happiness away from them. Will they be able to trust each other enough to defeat this new threat, or will they be torn apart for all eternity?

Here's an excerpt:

                Never in his life had Mack been more angry than when he heard Cassie slam that bolt
into place. Not when his father had disowned him. Not even when Cassie had called him a
bastard. No, when he had heard that telling snick, he had seen red. Before he knew what he was
doing, he had raised his booted foot and slammed it into the door near the doorknob. Mack had
felt great satisfaction when the door flew open, and even more when he witnessed the stunned
expression on his wife’s face.
                “You’re not going to get away from me,” he stalked her across the room.
                “Don’t make me hurt you,” she threatened.
                “I have studied your moves, Cassie darlin’. You’ll not be hurting me anymore.”
                Cassie made a sharp move and found it countered. She tried another one and found the
same. He moved on her like a jungle cat. He pinned her against the wall, her hands above her
head. He felt her breathing grow fast and labored and knew she was not unaffected by his touch.
Mack forced her legs wide so he could wedge himself between them. At first he did it to keep
her from attempting to unman him, but as he settled against her, he felt some relief as his
throbbing erection pressed against the span of softness between her pelvis.
                “Do you feel what you do to me?” he whispered. He placed a soft kiss on her forehead.
Mack pulled back and saw that her eyes were tightly closed, and her lips were pursed shut. He
dropped gentle kisses over each of her eyes, then her cheeks, and finally the upturned tip of her
nose. His lips caressed hers, lightly, teasingly, but she remained the same, trying to block out
what he did to her. Mack let the tip of his tongue glide against the seam of her lips and though
her eyes flew open, her delectable mouth remained tightly shut against his invasion. She left him
no choice. “Forgive me, darlin’,” he said before crushing his lips roughly against hers.
***
                “Ow!” Cassie managed to get out before she found Mack exploring the recesses of her
mouth. Her lips throbbed where he had ground them against her teeth, but somehow he seemed
to soothe even that small injury. She felt her heart beating heavily in her chest. Cassie would be
lying if she said she was not the least excited about what her husband was doing to her.
Husband, she thought. She had never thought she would find herself married. The boys in the
village had always thought her much too strange and learned for them. Then when their little
family had moved to London after her mother’s death, she had not gone about looking for a
husband or friends.
                “Where are you?” he asked, resting his forehead against hers.
Cassie found herself staring into a pair of smokey silver eyes, rimmed with dark lashes.
Dark brows formed a ‘V’ from the way he scrutinized her. Cassie flexed her hands that were still
pinned above her head because her fingers ached to rake through his short, dark hair. She
wanted to test the texture. Was it silky or coarse? “Do you know you have flecks of silver in
your hair?” she asked curiously.
                “I would say half of them have been caused by you.”
                “Me? We haven’t even known each other that long. How dare you accuse me…”
“Did you know your eyes flash when you’re angry? They look like they are lit from
within.”
                “Let go of me.”
                “Not on your life,” he said.
                Cassie didn’t fight him as he plundered her mouth like a marauding pirate. This time
there was no way her mind drifted. The things he was doing to her were making her insides
melt. She began to respond, and she heard a deep groan.
                “That’s it,” he said before returning to her mouth once more. This time he nibbled at her
lips as if they were a fine delicacy. “You look so bloody beautiful,” he whispered as he moved to
nibble on her right earlobe.
                “No, I don’t,” she replied breathily. “I’m just plain.”
                “Whoever told you that was a liar.” Mack bent down and lifted her up in his arms.
                “What are you doing?”
                “Taking you to bed.”
                She started wiggling in his arms. “Put me down. You were going to sleep elsewhere.
Besides it’s afternoon, you said so.”
                “You put paid to me staying in another room when you bolted that door.” He held her
tight in his arms. “As for the time of day, I can see you better this way.”
                “That’s improper!” Cassie was flabbergasted at what he proposed. She knew what
happened between a man and woman, but assumed it happened in the dark of night.
                “Nothing is improper between a husband and wife.”
                He sounded almost wicked and shivers ran up and down her spine. She found herself
placed on her feet next to the bed and spun around so that her back was to Mack. Cool air hit her
heated skin as buttons were slipped free.
                “I don’t know whether to thank Mikala or murder her.”
                “Why’s that?” Cassie licked her dry lips, her breath raspy.
                “Because she picked the most exquisite dress, but it also has too many bloody buttons.”
Cassie giggled.
                “Did you just giggle? The staid and always serious Cassiopeia Elizabeth Graham
McKenzie giggled?”
                “No,” she denied, attempting to keep a straight face. She jumped when she felt his lips
brush her nape, and then lower until he reached the edge of her chemise. She tried to take a step
away from him, but he just followed her.
                “You’re not going to escape me, Cassie.”
She felt his lips brushing along one shoulder, then her nape again, and finally her other
shoulder. His hand brushed along her spine, only the fine cloth of her chemise keeping her from
fully feeling his touch on her heated skin. “Copulating will not erase the issues between us.”

                “I agree, but it will ease some of this tension we feel around one another.”

About the Author

Tammy Jo Burns
From a young age I could always be found carrying around books to read while watching my grandmother's soap operas with her. I read anything and everything I could get my hands on and even made up skits and stories for my friends and me to act out. Once I outgrew the children's and YA books, my mom introduced me to an entirely new world - contemporary romance. Upon discovering I had a love for history I began devouring historical romances. One day, sitting in a college British History class, something the professor said made me think, I wonder. I quickly called mom (also a writer) and ran the idea by her. After being told, "Of course you can do it, you're my daughter," the rest, as they say, is history. I currently share my love of reading with the next generation as a high school librarian, and share my personal life with my demanding dog trapped in a cat's body, Ajax.

Synopsis:

Good girls don’t do one-night stands…
If there’s one thing Lyssa Rivera knows, it’s that good girls don’t do one-night stands. But it only takes a few hours in the company of sexy businessman, James Everly, to change her mind. All she wants is a night of sin with the man who’s admittedly way out of her league. Then she can go back to being painfully, boringly good.
James Everly doesn’t do relationships, not after the horrible example set by his parents. When he meets a luscious, irresistible woman at his favorite bar, he’s more than ready to show her a night of ecstasy, but that’s all it could ever be. He certainly never plans on seeing her again. Yet when he shows up at his meeting the next morning to woo a venture capitalist, he’s shocked to find his competition is the very woman whose bed he just left.
James knows he should stay away. He’s no good at long term, and that’s what a woman like Lyssa deserves. But as the two vie for the investor’s attention, he finds himself struggling to choose between the family business and the woman whose touch makes him burn with desire.

Forgiving Reed Cover


I took a deep breath and rang the doorbell. Almost immediately Diesel began to bark and Rhett grew 

excited. I could hear Reed’s deep voice trying to calm Diesel. The moment the door came open and that 

gorgeous smile spread out across his lips, all the nervous energy disappeared.

“Hey you, come here, little man.” Reed held his hands out to Rhett and in no time at all my son was 

lunging for him. Rhett griped Reed’s shirt tightly and kicked his legs as he looked down at the big dog 

that was spastically wagging his tail. A loud squeal escaped Rhett when Diesel barked, the sight was one 

I would always have etched in my mind.

If you would have asked me six months ago if I would be falling for Reed, I would have laughed. I 

promised myself I would never go there again. Once a cheater always a cheater. Right? Now here I was 

standing in his doorway, while he held my son close and tickled his tummy. I could see the adoration in 

Reed’s eyes as he looked at Rhett. I had to accept that he had changed. Reed was no longer that selfish 

young boy. He had changed, things had happened that forced him to grow.

“You gonna come inside?” Reed tilted his head toward the house and I took a step in through the 

doorway. His house was beautiful, and surprisingly clean. It was nothing like I expected. It had that 

homey feeling, the one that you get when you walked in to a place you belong.

I could feel Reed against my back as he stepped up behind me. “It feels good having you here, both of 

you.” He kissed my head softly and nudged me forward.

“Thanks for inviting us.” I spoke softly still not trusting my voice. I had mixed emotions right now. It felt 

so right to be here with him, yet I felt guilty for that. Was I moving too fast?

We decided to stay in and make something to eat. A movie on the big screen was the plan. It felt so 

natural for Rhett to be hobbling around the kitchen while Reed and I made dinner. Diesel was attached 

to my little guy’s hip. It really was the sweetest thing. If Rhett stopped walking, Diesel sat back on his 

hind legs next to him and waiting patiently. The moment Rhett was on the move again, Diesel jumped to 

follow close behind.

Synopsis:

Kori suffered a great loss, one that left her feeling so desolate and alone, that she believed nothing would ever fill the void…
The only thing that kept her going was the one little piece of joy she still had in her life, her baby boy, Rhett.
She had no choice but to move forward and give her son the best life she could. Which meant moving back home.
Except there was one problem
Home was where Reed would be…
The man who once held her heart, then shattered it into a million pieces.
Grieving the loss of Rhett's dad, and learning to forgive those who have betrayed her, Kori was battling it all.
But will she ever have the strength to forgive Reed?

Book 3 of The Sanctuary Series -- River's Revenge by Charlotte Abel -- Available Now

I'm so excited to announce that River's Revenge is finally available.




Jonathan and River are reunited but must hide the true nature of their relationship until all the carefully woven lies supporting the revolution start to unravel. Nothing but the truth can save them. Not only must they convince the citizens of New Eden that the prophecy is real, they must also prove Jonathan is the true son of Ephraim or face certain execution.




An excerpt from River's Revenge

River clung to Jonathan. They’d had five days together alone in the cave but now it was time to leave. Gabriel and Eli were waiting for them at the bottom of the cliff.
Gabriel would take Jonathan home to Reuben’s ranch. She’d go to Sanctuary Mountain with Eli.
Jonathan pressed his forehead against hers. “I don’t want to let you go.”
“I know.” She couldn’t let him see how hard this was for her or he wouldn’t let her go. “It’s only for a few weeks.”
“But you’ll be with him.” Jonathan growled the word.
River knew he was worried about the blood bond she shared with Eli. “I’ll be fine.”
“I can’t stand the thought of him touching you.”
She cupped his cheeks with her palms as she leaned back. “I won’t let him touch me when we’re alone, but Eli and I have to convince everyone that we’re a mated pair. So we’re going to have to at least hold hands in public.”
“That stupid blood bond should help sell the deception.”
“It will.”
Jonathan groaned. “Is that supposed to make me feel better?”
“No, but hopefully this will.” River pressed her lips to his.
Jonathan tangled his fingers in her hair and took control of the kiss. He hooked his forearm around the small of her back then jerked her body against his.
River’s eyes fluttered shut.
“Hey! What’s taking so long?” Eli’s shout intruded.
River pulled back then gave Jonathan a quick peck on the mouth. “We need to leave before he decides to climb up here and get us.”
“Let him.” Jonathan’s eyes still glowed with his wolf’s light. “It’ll take him at least an hour with that bum knee of his.”
“Jonathan.” River smiled and shook her head. “That’s not very nice.”
“I can think of all sorts of nice things to do while we wait.”
Gabriel’s form suddenly filled the opening of the cave, blocking the light. He shouted, “Jonathan!” then ran inside. He wrapped his long, muscular arms around Jonathan and River then squeezed the air out of both of them.
Jonathan grunted then laughed. “Hey, Gabe. It’s good to see you, too.”
Gabriel squeezed them even tighter. “I’m so glad you aren’t dead.”

Jonathan laughed again. “Me too.”
