Pimping Out My Friends

Over the years, I've met and made friends with a lot of fabulous authors, some of them are members of our local RWA NYC chapter. I thought I would use this post to highlight just a few of them and their latest books.

Dark Deceptions by Dee Davis:

From the back cover: A-Tac is an elite CIA unit masquerading as faculty at an Ivy League college. Brilliant, badass, and seemingly bulletproof, the members of A-Tac are assigned to the riskiest missions and the most elusive targets. Covert operations expert Nash Brennon has spent the last eight years trying to forget Annie Gallagher, his former field partner and the only woman he ever loved. Annie betrayed him when he needed her most, then vanished without a trace. Now suddenly she's back in the game - this time as a suspected traitor and threat to national security.

Annie's son has been kidnapped by political terrorists. The price for his life? Assassinate a UN ambassador. When Nash and his group find her, the smoldering passion between Annie and the man she swore she'd never contact again blazes out of control. But can Nash trust her? The stakes couldn?t be higher: Their enemy's endgame is personal, and one false move could cost them their lives.

Coming out June 1st is Sara Lindsey's second book in The Weston Series: Tempting the Marquess.

From the back cover: The Weston siblings have been blessed with Shakespearean names and an affinity for impropriety. Prepare to fall in love while discovering how the Westons are won. While Olivia Weston loves matchmaking and romantic novels, she intends to make a suitable match. But first she wants an adventure, and when given the opportunity to visit a reclusive widower living in a haunted castle, Livvy can't possibly resist. After his wife's death, Jason Traherne, Marquess of Sheldon, shut his heart to everyone but his son, and until now he has succeeded in maintaining his distance. But there's something about Livy and her unique blend of sweetness and sensuality &emdash; that tempts him beyond all reason.Though there's nothing suitable about the feelings he inspires in her, Livvy can't help falling for the marquess. But can she persuade him to let go of the past and risk his heart again?

Another RWA NYC author Kathleen O'Reilly and her partner in crime Julie Kenner.

From the back cover: No fooling: hot sex is about to happen!
Cam's Catastrophe

A reckless adventurer, Cam is about to take the wildest April Fool's Day plunge ever: jumping into bed with Dr. Jenna! But it's her own recklessness that fools them both….
Darcy's Dark Day

The clouds lift when Darcy has a sudden opportunity to reel in her longtime crush, Evan! Who'd have guessed that a foolish curse could set up some amazing sex…?
Devon's Dilemma

She's about to take a sexy Chance…but will it be a lucky one? It's a dangerous gamble. But it could transform Devon's devilish dilemma into a delicious one!
Reg's Rescue

Anne desperately wants Reg in her life—for good! But for that to happen, the curse has to be lifted. So she intends to help him break the jinx—just as soon as they get out of bed….

And coming out next week is the hotly anticipated sequel in Leanna Renee Hieber's Strangely Beautiful series. The book hasn't even come out yet, and already it's gone into a second printing. And the first book has been optioned for a Broadway musical. What's that sound? Broadway performers like Constantine Maroulis getting their audition material ready.
