About TALL, DARK, AND DIVINE by Jenna Bennett:

Being the Greek god of love doesn’t mean you believe–or want–anything to do with that sappy emotion.  Sure, Eros runs his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, but finding his own love has never been part of the equation.  When he spots the sweet baker who works across the street, he vows to match her with someone else before she stirs his sullen heart.

Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.

Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone else—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.

Meet Eros from TALL, DARK, AND DIVINE!

Name: Eros. No last name. The Greek god of love doesn’t need one.

Height: Six feet or so.

Weight: Around 180.

Hair: Black, curly, never more than two inches long, never in need of cutting because it never grows.

Eyes: Dark brown, melting, long lashes.

Leading Lady: Annie Landon, the proverbial girl next door: a baker of cookies and dog biscuits.

Bio: The Greek god of love, immortal matchmaker, son of Erebus (darkness) and Nyx (night); jilted husband of Psyche, the most beautiful woman the world has ever seen. Angry, bitter, cynical, and determined never to get involved with a mortal again. They’re just too much trouble. (And look, I even managed to alphabetize those traits.)

Deceiving the Witch Next Door

About DECEIVING THE WITCH NEXT DOOR by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez:

Down-on-her-luck witch Storie Bell never thought the biggest threat to her future would be Reid Malone, the very man she’d run from years before. After striking it rich in Texas shale, he’s back in town, and he seems hell bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. A witch trying to blend in a small southern town is hard enough, but now he’s seriously testing her strict No Kissing Mortal Men policy. But even witches don’t have a spell for that.

Reid knows there’s much more to Storie than meets the eye. But right now he has only one mission: to infiltrate her shop so he can snatch the elusive secret ingredient to his father’s million-dollar moonshine recipe. Once he does, he can go back to the city and get out of his small hometown, a place in which he has no future.

But as the days go by, he can’t help falling for Storie in every way…and every encounter brings him closer to finding out what happens when you try to deceive a witch.


Name:  Reid Malone

Height: 6 feet

Weight:  178 pounds

Hair:  Chestnut brown

Eyes:  As green as a mossy lake in Texas

Leading Lady:  Storie Bell

Bio:  Born in Bloomington, Texas, Reid Malone has always itched to shake the dust of his hometown off his Ropers.  His mother left him and his father when he was a boy—she couldn’t take small town life.  That left a mark on Reid, convincing him that he was too big for a little square town, too.  He has a Celtic  tattoo on his arm to symbolize the family he once had.  He graduated from UT Austin, but made millions on Texas shale.  Now he manages his investments and his mineral holdings from Bloomington and sticks around to help his father with The Speakeasy, a bar Jiggs Malone owns, and to find the secret ingredient his father needs for his Apple Pie Moonshine recipe that will make him his own millions.

Turn ons: Blue jeans, cut offs, a white, knotted tee shirt, and the girl next door look.  A little mystery and intrigue in a woman is always a good thing.  Someone who can hold her own with him, who speaks her mind, and who likes both the small town boy in him, as well as the big city business man.  A belly button piercing is a plus.  Which pretty much sums up Storie Bell.

Turn offs: Pushy women. Anyone who can’t fight for what they want or need.  Anyone who’d not Storie Bell.

Top or bottom? Top, and wickedly so. 😉

Favorite Quote: Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.  ~ Mark Twain

About TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP by Candace Havens:

Vampire Nick Christos might’ve been born in the Middle Ages, but the good old days seem tame compared to the last eight years he’s spent ruling the Supernatural Council. His only respite is with his cute neighbor Casey Meyers, a woman he wants more than any undead man should. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but there’s no way he’ll test his own strength by getting too close to a human, and he’s not willing to risk her life–not with bloodthirsty kin on the prowl out to ruin Nick’s life.

When said kin shows up, the innocent Casey is caught in the middle of a centuries old fight, and Nick’s biggest fear is realized.  Now, instead of keeping his hands off his neighbor, he’ll risk everything to save the human he’s come to love.

Meet Nick from TAKE IT LIKE A VAMP!

Name: Nick Christos

Height: Six foot four inches

Weight:  180

Hair: Sandy Blonde

Eyes:  Dark Gray

Leading Lady: Casey Meyers

Bio: Nick Christos is a billionaire playboy, who has a wide variety of business interests. He is the head of the Supernatural Council and helps to keep peace between the monsters and the humans. He’s had the hots for his curvy neighbor for months, and has a difficult time concentrating when she’s around.

Turn ons: Casey is his biggest turn on. He loves her free spirit and the way she looks at life. She helps him remember his humanity.

Turn offs: He is turned off by evil, especially in the form of nasty Goth witches.

Top or bottom?:  Nick will take Casey any way he can get her.

Favorite Quote:  “Not every woman is you,” he said. “And you are mine.” -Nick Christos
