Four N.M. Romance Authors Join Forces
Press Release [ Thu Jun 30 2016 10:00 AM ]
Paranormal author Darynda Jones, along with romance authors Celeste Bradley, Susan Donovan and Katie Lane, join forces at 4pm on Saturday, July 2, to celebrate a "Hot, Sultry Summer of Love" at Page One Books with their latest releases.
Bradley's I Thee Wed is teased as such: "Intelligent and driven, Orion Worthington aspired to be like his mentor, the acclaimed scientist Sir Geoffrey Blayne. Logically, Sir Geoffrey’s daughter would be Orion’s perfect match. So why can’t he keep his mind off the unruly girl who works in Sir Geoffrey’s lab? Orphaned fire-cracker Francesca Penrose hopes that London is modern enough to accept her brilliant mind despite her womanhood. But she can’t help noticing Orion’s mind ... or his body. So they decide to run an experiment: if they give in to their passions, their attraction will simply fizzle out, with no impact on their hearts ... right?"
In Donovan's "Bayberry" novel, "It might take more than a magical mermaid statue to bring together a hard-headed Navy SEAL and the mysterious artist who’s loved him from afar ... Duncan Flynn long ago said goodbye to his hometown of Bayberry Island, Mass., where a mermaid statue allegedly grants true love to the pure at heart. So when the injured Navy SEAL gets sent home—just in time to help his family prepare for the annual Mermaid Festival—he’s not in the mood to celebrate. Nor fall in love. But during a night run on the beach, a magnificently naked woman emerges from the surf who bears an uncanny resemblance to the mermaid in Fountain Square. Adelena Silva’s otherworldly mermaid paintings have made her famous and wealthy, but Lena herself is a recluse—at least until Duncan Flynn comes home."
And Lane's Billionaire After Dark is thus described: "It's an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company's lingerie. But beneath Nash's raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control ... a side that may be exposed by one lovely—and unexpectedly adventurous woman. Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash's dirty little secret, she thinks she's found it. But Eden doesn't count on Nash turning the tables on her—or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont."
Jones, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, won a Golden Heart Award for best paranormal for her manuscript First Grave On The Right. As a born storyteller, she grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by, annoying man and beast alike. Jones moved to Albuquerque from Portales in 2015 with her husband. They have two sons.
Bradley is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty Regency romance novels, including The Wicked Worthington, The Runaway Bride, The Heiress Brides, The Royal Four, and The Liar’s Club series. She has twice been nominated for the RITA award by the Romance Writers of America. Before becoming a writer in 1999, Celeste was an artist, specializing in pottery and ceramic sculpture. Shes lives in Albuquerque.
Donovan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of dozens of novels, including The Sweetest Summer and Sea of Love, and a novella in Christmas on Main Street. She lives in Placitas.
Lane started writing in fifth grade when she wrote a fictional story about being a skirt(yes, you read that correctly. The story was told in first-skirt rather than first-person). Since then, she's stuck to telling stories about people. Going Cowboy Crazy was her first "Deep in the Heart of Texas" novel. She lives in Albuquerque with her high school sweetheart.

By Megan Reneau [ Thu Dec 3 2015 11:32 AM ]
Transphobia is alive and well all over the world—in this case—to sell signs.
Soon everyone can die for the US (if you're into that kinda thing).
Think terrorist attacks on Planned Parenthood is a new thing? HA.
Will justice actually be served with the diverse Freddie Gray Jury? It seems more likely now.
The show Jessica Jones is everything I’ve ever wanted from a drama.
I doubt any of you will be able to go to this exhibition in London, but you can still enjoy these historical photos of the club scene in the UK.
In addition to my upcoming list in the Alibi’s last minute gift guide, take note of this, friends.
