Good News

  • Iris Blobel’s 4th book NEW BEGINNINGS will be released late August by Astraea Press.Her Demon Prince
  • Maggi Andersen’s Amazon Regency bestseller, Georgian romance, THE RELUCTANT MARQUESS is now available in print.
  • Cathleen Ross has a new August release, HER DEMON PRINCE from Forbidden Fantasy.
  • Kendall Talbot says: “It’s not every day a romance book set deep in Australian jungle is released. So I thought…What better way to celebrate the 1st of August release of LOST IN KAKADU than with an eye-candy feast. I’m talking hot bodies, rippling abs, bulging biceps, killer eyes…it’s up to you. So get your pics ready for an hour of hot-as-hell hunks. Along with the eye candy, the odd hunky hero pic poll, book giveaways and a major prize, I’ll be giving you some quirky facts about Kakadu – both my book and this amazing Australian Heritage Listed National Park.It’s a one hour Facebook event at 8pm on Thursday the 1st of August.”
