Museums. Places of grandeur and mystery, hidden corners and secrets. Walk the halls of any museum and find a past life in a necklace, an alternate reality in a painting, a terrible curse fro
Hailey hates the museum. It keeps her husband, James, away from her, stealing time that should be spent building their family. James’s job requires him to work after-hours, but he’s happy to put in the extra time. Home has become a battlefield. He feels like a failure as a husband and love hasn’t been part of the picture for far too long.
But Marguerite might just change all of that. In ancient times she brought bounty to the lives of her worshipers. A night with this goddess might just bring Hailey the balance she needs, and give James the one thing he wants most… his wife.
Portrait of Passion by Maggie Wells
Officer Mitch Jameson gets more than an eyeful when he starts moonlighting as a security guard at the Templeton Museum. Sexy Artist-In-Residence, Kelsy Tecato knows exactly which buttons to push to capture the hot cop’s attention, and by letting him in on her secret, she introduces him to a new level of art appreciation.
Evangelos has loved Philomela since before time began. He’s dreamed of having her in his arms and his bed. But she never once looked his way. Instead, she chose a Fall that transformed her into a monstrous creature. He never forgot the one he loved, and he’s determined to bring her back home.
Cut off from the power that fed them, Meela and the other Fallen angels became demons, thriving on vice and preying on Creation. Hell holds too much pain and Meela wants nothing more than to give in to the temptation Evan offers. But a demon has no place in the arms of an angel.
Meela knows Evan’s determination to save her will be his downfall, because Lucifer wants to feast on the power of angels—and she’s the perfect bait.
Heavenly Eternity – Books 1 and 2 in the Heavenly Lovers series
November 2 from Ellora’s Cave Publishing
For two hundred years, Dominicus has lived in isolation, sentenced to take human souls to hell. But this night’s victim is unlike all the others. She tempts him. One kiss and she comes apart in his arms. One taste, and he can’t walk away.
But Maggie isn’t the only temptation he faces. Dominicus fights an attraction to Renatus, his best friend through the eons and a male with whom sex is forbidden. With her, he risks Hell, with him, losing the only piece of Heaven he has left.
Maggie cannot begin to understand what Dominicus has done. Demons covet her soul and Lucifer won’t give up his prize. In claiming her, he’s not only compounded his sin, he’s sparked a war between Heaven and Hell. Angels battle demons, and Dominicus must make a choice. Does he deliver to Lucifer the human whose soul calls to him and ensure his salvation, or save her and risk eternal damnation?
Reader Advisory: Contains passionate lip-locks between two male angels, hot enough to singe your feathers off.
Renatus is a legalist and knows the rules better than most. But knowing the Law doesn’t stop him from imagining the press of a hard male body against his, or remembering one forbidden kiss that left him hungry for more. He leaves Heaven to mingle with mankind, hoping that satisfying curiosity will quell desire. He finds Adam, a college professor who has given up on love.
Adam once dreamed of finding the perfect man and settling down. His dreams and trust were shattered when he found out the truth about his ex. Meeting Renatus seduces Adam into taking another chance on love. But Ren is keeping secrets, and the only promise he will make is that he will leave.
Now the Most High has commanded Renatus to retrieve the Law of Men and Angels, and a vengeful demon is circling, waiting for her opportunity to strike. Staying is impossible, leaving unbearable, and Ren wants to succumb to temptation, forsaking eternity for a life on Earth with Adam.
