Save a horse – ride this sexy devil of a cowboy! Welcome to Glacier Country! Luthor Devlin and his ranch hands were out tracking 20th century rustlers when they stepped into a time warp! There on the jagged cliffs was a woolly mammoth, a sabre-toothed tiger and her – a tawny, near-naked savage. She was a primal fantasy come true – that left him stunned! His gaze was locked onto hers. “I’d really appreciate an explanation of all this. You, the hairy elephant, and the cat with the overbite are not the norm in Montana. And I know you can understand my every word. So anytime you’d like to begin.” Her relaxed appraisal hadn’t gone unnoticed by either the man or the large tiger. The latter proved her undoing. His mouth opened not to snarl again but to emit a long, loud, kittenish yawn. The tiger rolled over, rubbed his back and shoulders into the ground, his hind legs spread-eagle, yawned again, and pawed sleepily at his face. To the amazement of everyone, his sword-like teeth fell out. “Damn it, Pumpkin, why couldn’t you have just growled!” She extended her hand. “Cam Stirling, action technician.” At his confused expression, she sighed. “Stunt woman.” She was wild, irresistible – and he was the man to tame her. She dared the devil every day – why not Luthor Devlin!Romance

THE CHANEL CAPER by Ruth Harris, million-copy New York Times bestseller and winner, Romantic Times “Best Contemporary” JAMES BOND MEETS NORA EPHRON. OR IS IT THE OTHER WAY AROUND? Blake Weston is a smart, savvy, no BS, 56-year-old Nora Ephron-like New Yorker. Her darling (damn!) husband, Ralph Marino, is a très James Bond ex-cop & head of security for a large international corporation. At a tense time in their relationship, Blake & Ralph are forced to work together to solve a murder in Shanghai & break up an international piracy ring. As the book opens, Ralph is about to hit the Big Six O and he’s not happy about it. Not that Blake is exactly thrilled about the prospect, either. Especially now that she suspects Ralph might be cheating on her with Melanie Bradshaw, a flak-jacket-wearing, gung ho war zone correspondent with a humongo pair of 36 Double D’s. Blake and Ralph survived (barely) the seven year itch but she wonders why no one warned her about the twenty-seven year itch. The action starts when Blake buys a faux Chanel bag on a NYC sidewalk & escalates from there to an encounter with a fearsome one-eyed, one-legged Afghan war lord who doesn’t speak a word of English and a beautiful woman in Shanghai who might—or might not—be deadly. Other characters include an über-neurotic billionaire, a Martha Stewart wannabe trying to revive her career with the help of a red balconette bra, a rat-fink bastard named Clay Riggins, and Blake’s best friend, Julia (twice divorced, once widowed), who has just switched from hetero to homo & made a commitment to Pilates and Mindful Living. Chick Lit for chicks who weren’t born yesterday, The Chanel Caper, is a romcom mystery-thriller. The story is about the ups and downs of long-term relationships and addresses two of the most important questions of our time: 1) Is there sex after marriage? 2) Is sixty the new forty? A NOTE TO READERS FROM RUTH: For a long time I’ve wanted to write about a long-term relationship and about the way romance can wax and wane, evolve and transform over time. In The Chanel Caper, Blake Weston and her DH, Brooklyn boy and ex-NYPD cop Ralph Marino, have been through it all—the break ups and makeups, the squabbles, the spats and the stand-offs. Even so, after twenty-six years of living together (and sometimes driving each other crazy), they are still holding hands in the movies. And they still have the hots for each other! A second element that went into creating The Chanel Caper was that as my friends and I approached sixty, I realized that 60 isn’t what it used to be (and maybe never was). Maybe 60 is—or isn’t—the new 40 but attitudes toward age and aging have been transformed by medical advances, new discoveries about the importance of nutrition and exercise and Baby Boomers’ determination to stay on top of their game. Throw into the mix the fact that I’m a news junkie and love to write about the social and cultural atmosphere of the time in which a book is set. The Chanel Caper takes place in the fall of 2008 when the global financial system faced collapse. From Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff to bankers in five thousand dollar suits flying their private jets to Washington to scrounge for money, the financial crisis of 2008 was a richly ironic background for my story of murder and suspense. Other characters in the story were inspired by headlines, news stories & current events: • a washed-up Martha Steward wannabe trying to make a come back with the help of a red balconette bra • a one-eyed, one-legged Afghan warlord who doesn’t speak a word of English • an über neurotic, germ-ophobic billionaire freaking out as the stock market plummets and his net worth goes down—and down • a flack-jacket-wearing gung-ho war zone reporter with a humongo pair of 36 DoubleD’s • NYC’s ubiquitous sidewalk vendors of faux designer label bags, sunglasses and scarves • the city’s vast selection of ethnic restaurants and foods. • news reports about the deadly consequences of counterfeit drugs • the rise of the Chinese economy and the glam and glittering city of Shanghai • trendy gurus and hot self-help fads Add in Bollywood movies, the world’s best shade of red lipstick and one drop-dead fantastic way to deal with a cheating husband (+ a dick joke) and you have an idea of some of the ingredients that went into The Chanel Caper. I had fun writing it. I hope you have fun reading it! I blog at and love to get to know my readers—you can reach me at harris.ruth.c@gmail.com.

** $.99 for a limited time — 344 pages! ** I never intended to pick up a naked hitchhiker wearing nothing but a guitar. A guitar. Really. I don’t collect guys like that (don’t ask what kind of guys I do collect), but when you spot a blonde, tanned, sculpted man with a gorgeous smile and his thumb poking up and practically begging you to stop – you stop. And I definitely never thought I’d be staring into the bright blue eyes of Trevor Connor, the lead singer for Random Acts of Crazy, an indie rock star I followed like the slobbering fileshare fangirl I am. How he came to be nude and lost six hundred miles from home is quite the tale, but how we fell in love is even more unreal. Because someone like Trevor Connor, headed to Harvard Law next year, isn’t supposed to want someone like me, a rural Ohio chick majoring in Boredom at Convenience Store University who is all curves and frizzy blonde hair and manners so unpolished they have sharp edges that make you bleed. But he did. When his best friend, Joe Ross, the bass player for Random Acts of Crazy and a man who makes Calvin Klein models look like Shrek, drove eleven hours through the night to rescue him, though, it got real complicated. It’s one thing to like two different guys and be torn. What do you do, though, when maybe – just maybe – you don’t have to choose? As my Aunt Josie says sometimes, “It’s always complicated.” * * * Random Acts of Crazy is a standalone, full-length novel featuring Darla Jo(sephine) Jennings, the 22-year-old niece of Josie Mendham from the Her Two Billionaires series. It has, like many New Adult novels, an exploration of sexuality for the three main characters, doesn’t shy away from mature content, and Darla has a sailor’s mouth.Romance

Even if it means going over the edge. *** From Tracy at One Good Book Deserves Another–KT Bryan doesn’t just kick off her Team EDGE series with this powerhouse of a story, she fills it with rocket fuel and launches it straight into the stratosphere. Powerful writing, a hell of a plot, and two flawed characters thrust into one incredibly perilous situation after another are the backbone of this awesome debut. As in all things, the devil is in the detail, and Bryan proved herself adept and snagging that devil by the throat, slamming it down on the page, and introducing her characters to hell. Gut-churning emotion, sweat-soaking suspense, and so much action I felt like I needed a nap after, THE EDGE OF TRUST snatched me up and commanded my attention through every single white-knuckled page. This definitely isn’t a book for the faint of heart. Not only was the emotional gamut fairly harsh and unrelenting, but Bryan doesn’t shy away from scenes of physical brutality either. I am a reader who appreciates Bryan’s ability to create the sort of story she’s written here. Well written and complex, taut and emotional, action-packed and exhausting, this series debut is the whole package. It’s one of the best romantic suspense novels of this type that I’ve read and one of my favorite reads of the year. In short, wow. Awesome read.Romance

Even if it means going over the edge. *** From Tracy at One Good Book Deserves Another–KT Bryan doesn’t just kick off her Team EDGE series with this powerhouse of a story, she fills it with rocket fuel and launches it straight into the stratosphere. Powerful writing, a hell of a plot, and two flawed characters thrust into one incredibly perilous situation after another are the backbone of this awesome debut. As in all things, the devil is in the detail, and Bryan proved herself adept and snagging that devil by the throat, slamming it down on the page, and introducing her characters to hell. Gut-churning emotion, sweat-soaking suspense, and so much action I felt like I needed a nap after, THE EDGE OF TRUST snatched me up and commanded my attention through every single white-knuckled page. This definitely isn’t a book for the faint of heart. Not only was the emotional gamut fairly harsh and unrelenting, but Bryan doesn’t shy away from scenes of physical brutality either. I am a reader who appreciates Bryan’s ability to create the sort of story she’s written here. Well written and complex, taut and emotional, action-packed and exhausting, this series debut is the whole package. It’s one of the best romantic suspense novels of this type that I’ve read and one of my favorite reads of the year. In short, wow. Awesome read.Romance
