Blurb for ‘Therapy Rapture’
Perry has a desire for the right woman to spend some time with, enjoying each other’s company, a romantic interlude that would lead to that one fabulous encounter, bringing complete ecstasy.
Rowena is a therapist who has endured a repressed childhood. She loves dressing up and feels that the clothes have a way of caressing her body. She wants him to open up his mind to his dreams.
He begins to ache for Rowena. He finds her dark, sultry and somewhat reserved. He finds hard professional women sexy, and she happens to be just the one he believes could bring out that strong urge that he needs to release. Rowena wants him to incorporate his dreams into a healing process. She is able to help him release his inner self as the two have some romantic interludes that lead to total satisfaction. By giving into what their hearts and mind desires, they are able to find that one medium that captures their souls. After everything is over, will they be able to face the world positively?
My Killer My Love. An Immortal Enforcer. An Innocent Woman. The soul he’d forgotten he possessed.
Upon her grandmother’s death, Kendra inherits a cottage deep within the sequoia forest, along with the powers given only to certain women in her family—powers she doesn’t know she has. Kendra returns home to the remote cabin determined to heal both her body and her spirit. But the forest is ailing, too. Evil lurks in its dark places, turning its quiet glades into a battlefield. When a strangely beautiful man appears at her cabin intent on punishing her for a crime she didn’t commit, Kendra needs all her strength to protect her forest, her life… and her heart. Can she learn to use her powers and to trust Mykhael in time to save the ancient forest?
Throughout his long life, Mykhael has struggled, often in vain, to please the Atrahasis, immortal overlords of the sacred places in the universe. Now they have given him one last chance to redeem himself. He must punish the person they think desecrated an ancient forest in Northern California. But when he meets Kendra, he realizes he’s doomed to disappoint them yet again. Not only is she innocent of the crime the Atrahasis have accused her of, Kendra is the missing part of the soul he’d forgotten he possessed. Can he defy the Atrahasis yet again and live long enough to save the only thing in his life that matters?

Thanks for promoting the Buffet!
Here’s my blurb from The Beckoning of Beautiful Things, in paranormal (http://bookloversbuffetdotcom.wordpress.com/paranormal/)
The ground began to vibrate. Marissa’s eyes flew open. A terrible screech erupted. The space next to Daniel split in two and Kali’s blue-black body emerged. She stomped her foot and a thunderous sonic boom ruptured the atmosphere. Her four arms launched out from her torso, wielding a sword, a man’s head, and a bowl to catch the blood dripping from the man’s neck. It drip, drip, dripped into the bowl, creating small splashes. She held nothing in her fourth hand. She held it open facing Marissa.
Marissa stumbled backward.
“You’ve called me. I’ve come. Does this mean you’re prepared to face the darkness?” Kali’s voice was like a blade being ground against a spinning stone, deadly and insistent. Her red-rimmed eyes bulged fierce and huge. A necklace of heads hung from her neck, while her skirt was fashioned from rows and rows of arms, their fingers affixed to the waistband with leather bindings.
“I…I…I don’t know.” Marissa’s eyes jumped to the dried blood at the end of each arm and the vacant eyes of the heads.
“Should I ask the Numen?” One finger reached toward Daniel’s cheek and slowly snaked down to his neck.
He flinched and froze in place.
The goddess moved her finger down along his jaw and descended to his neck. She made a swift slicing motion. She extended a long, red tongue from her lips and gave one sweeping lick of the delicate skin in the hollow of his neck. “Mmm, Night Numen, you’d make a fine consort.”
Daniel took a sharp intake of breath.
Kali twirled the tip of her tongue around and around in the well of skin above his sternum. “Your pulse is rapid. Are you scared?”
His jaw worked and his mouth clamped in a slit. “No.”
“I don’t believe you.” She threw back her head and laughed. The laughed echoed in every direction. “What is it you want, child?”
“That’s easy.” She smiled.
Her smile did nothing to ease Marissa’s shivering belly.
“And what will you give me?”
“Wh…wh…what do you want?”
The goddess seemed thoughtful. She cocked her head and scrutinized Marissa. Her long, long black hair fluttered in a non-existent wind, curling around her face like beckoning fingers.
Marissa’s mouth dried into a plaster-filled aperture.
“I’ve got it.” The goddess smiled again. “I want you to be like me.”
Kara, thank you!

Thanks for featuring the book buffet… I have 4 books on sale, under my alternate name AMBER CAREW:
VIRGIN SPY by AMBER CAREW
Trust and betrayal while undercover
Angel is experienced in a lot of things, but love isn’t one of them.
Angel has been deep undercover in the mob for too many years. Love is the last thing on her mind. Until Frank walks into her life once again. She almost fell in love with him four years ago, but had to betray him to the mob to protect her cover. He barely got away with his life, and now he hates her.
Too bad they’ve been partnered to work together. As man and wife.
CAPTIVE LOVER by AMBER CAREW
Surrender control to sexy stranger
The intensely sexy stranger was everything she wanted in a man, and everything she hated. He was intelligent, passionate, and compelling. Authoritative, domineering, and stubborn. And he would stop at nothing to convince her to surrender to him, body and soul.
Even though she sensed he would never hurt her, his ability to bend her to his will terrified her. She vowed never to surrender control. But ultimately, would she have a choice?
VIRGIN WIZARD by AMBER CAREW
Overwhelmed by a dominating stranger
For some reason, Fate has been messing with Lucinda’s love life.
By all known wizard lore, she should have bonded with her mentor Rand, but there’s simply no chemistry between them. When she gets “The Call”, which shouldn’t happen for her, she is faced with an incredibly sexy, entirely naked man in an alley in Paris. Getting “The Call” means she is supposed to be his mentor… and his one true love. Clearly Fate thinks her life is a joke.
Now she is stuck mentoring a man who is utterly domineering, overwhelmingly masculine, incredibly irresistible and, according to her most trusted friend, extremely dangerous.
I DREAM OF GENIE by AMBER CAREW
Genie’s decision: heart versus duty
Dawn has suffered centuries of loneliness cooped up in a brass bottle. Now she has fallen in love with her new master, Luke, a stupid thing for a genie to do.
Luke still loves his ex-fiancee and realizes the beautiful genie he frees from an ancient bottle may be the key to winning Evelyn back. How can Dawn reconcile what her heart desires with what duty demands of her?
REDEEMED – historical romance set in Charlemagne’s Empire. Doeg requires two things in a wife. Philantha has only one requirement in a husband, but it challenges the barriers Doeg has maintained for decades around his heart and body.
Forsaken, Ancients of Light #2 (Paranormal Romance) is included on the Buffet.
Fire is her Destiny…
Ella long ago determined she would not live a life where magic defined her. Feeling no kinship with her Caste, she walked away from the Realm and its conflicts. She found acceptance and fulfillment in her life amongst the mortals and is on the brink of achieving her dreams.
Darkness is His Curse…
Nicholas is the most revered warrior in the Darks’ army. His personal animosity towards the Light drives his existence and draws him to the one Witch he is set on controlling. Nicholas knows the reasons that Ella never found acceptance within the Fire Caste of Witch and he will use that knowledge to pursue his Dark agenda.
When two of the most powerful immortals on opposite sides of Realm collide in divinely-inspired fate, neither will escape unscathed. Only when the Forsaken finds grace will Ella and Nicholas be able to fulfill the destiny that has always been meant for them.
Many thanks, Kara, for letting us highlight the books we have on the Bouquet of Books sale. May the ghost of Shakespeare send fertile dreams to your imagination! My 99c books in the sale are science fiction with romantic elements:
The Trial of Tompa Lee – When Tompa is abandoned to cruel alien justice—trial by combat against 300 accusers!—only her enemies, including the hunky cop who arrested her, can help.
I have Kara’s permission to quote her reaction to this book: “I loved it. One of my fave reads of the year.”
The Midas Rush – All that young shepherd Tresky Buffrum wants is a taste of adventure. Instead he finds a mysterious virgin bride, mad murderers, and aliens who are either gods … or demons.
Thanks for promoting the buffet and for allowing us to post. My paranormal romance is Wait Until Moonrise.
Water pattered against the floor as she rose and stepped out of the tub and onto a plush rug. Bath water gurgled down the drain and…
Clutching the towel suddenly against her wet, naked flesh, Bria whipped around. There had been a sound in the darkness, like the sharp intake of a breath…
She stared through the narrow opening of the bathroom door. Fear tickled the lining of her stomach. She could have sworn she’d closed that door. And the lamps she’d lit throughout the suite had gone dark, leaving only a faint glow of moonlight.
Fear overwhelmed her. Still clutching the towel, she bolted forward and shoved the bathroom door closed. Pressing an ear to the wood, she listened for sounds of movement, but heard only the cadence of tiny hairs rising on her damp body.
Calm down, she thought. You’re tired. You just heard the wind…this old place is probably full of drafts. And the lights…it’s probably nothing but an overloaded circuit.
Backing away from the door, she rubbed the towel over her chilled flesh, and tried to ignore the voices of fear and reason that argued across her mind. Uncomfortably, her memory chose that moment to bring up Davy Cadall’s spooky stories.
She took a deep breath and said aloud, “There is no such thing as a ghost.”
Thank you for posting about the sale! I’m also participating with:

My book is TIN ANGEL, a light paranormal romance about second chances.
For the first time in Alice Hart’s life, she likes the way she looks. The ugly duckling has become a swan. But how could this be? She’s ninety years old, far from young and beautiful…
Alice Hart is a lonely old woman who believes true love happens only once in a lifetime. When the angel Christmas tree topper given to her by the man she lost sixty years ago comes to life, Alice’s wish to be young again is granted, but she’s given only ten days to find true love or die unfulfilled. So she concocts a story that she’s Alice’s long lost niece, hoping to attract the attention of her handsome tenant.
Disillusioned by his experiences with high-maintenance women, Jack Billings yearns to find an old-fashioned girl who is more interested in his heart than in material things. When his elderly landlady vanishes, her newly arrived niece, Ally, seems to hold the clues to her disappearance. Jack at first dismisses Ally as another material girl, but as he digs deeper into Alice’s mystery, he learns that Ally is more than what she seems and worries that the girl he’s coming to love might be a scam artist or worse.
An FBI agent and a Mafia princess in love–career suicide or everlasting love?
FBI Special Agent Alex MacGregor has a bad habit of making and breaking promises. Over the years this habit has brought him heartbreak…and broken some hearts as well. But now his older sister has disappeared. Vowing to find her, he takes leave from the Chicago FBI field office’s Violent Crimes Task Force and heads to upstate New York. This is one promise he’ll keep. Even if it means facing sexy Bette Smithson again, the beauty he rescued six months earlier and left behind with a kiss and another broken promise.
