New releases in March!

We have two new releases from Dreamspinner Press next month! First up is the third and final book in our Lawyers in Love series: Heart of Glass.

Fear of being like his unfaithful father has put high walls around senior litigator Asher Caldwell’s heart. Can former district attorney Zach Richardson knock them down to reveal the passionate man beneath the commitment-phobic workaholic, or will Zach’s own jealousy destroy what they’re trying to build?

A new life and a new love—that’s what Zach’s hoping for when he leaves the DA’s office and lets his friends give him a makeover. But the jury’s still out on whether the experiment was a success. His new look gets the attention of his boss and secret crush, Asher Caldwell, and leads to a seduction. Unfortunately, to Zach’s horror he learns that Asher assumed he was a paid escort. Asher is equally mortified to discover he had sex with an employee. Even so, the encounter meant a lot to both men, and they want to give dating a shot. Their romance born out of mistaken identity might work if Zack can trust Asher to be satisfied with the love of only one man… and if Asher can trust himself.

 

 

And we also have the complete Lawyers in Love set coming out in a paperback anthology! Lawyers in Love: The Collection.

When it comes to love, the trials aren’t only in the courtroom.

The legal profession is a challenging—and often stressful—one, and all work and no play leads to frustration for the men who dedicate their lives to justice. Luckily they find time to let off steam as things heat up in both the courtroom and behind the scenes. A secret holiday admirer might lead to a friend turned lover. A romantic confession might help a closeted man escape his father’s control and find happiness on his own terms. A former district attorney wants to help his workaholic boss relax, but his boss thinks he’s a paid escort! Along the way, these hardworking men might make partner… or better yet, find a partner to love and their own happily ever after when the gavel falls.

Includes Santa’s Naughty Helper, Fortune’s Slings and Cupid’s Arrows, and Heart of Glass.

 

Both Heart of Glass and Lawyers in Love: The Collection will be released by Dreamspinner Press on March 9, 2018!

Fortune’s Slings and Cupid’s Arrows is now available!

Today is the release day for the second book in our Lawyers in Love trilogy, Fortune’s Slings and Cupid’s Arrows! Haven’t read the first book? Good news! It’s on sale today only for 88 cents! You can buy Santa’s Naughty Helper at this low price today as part of Dreamspinner Press’s Daily Deals program.

Successful attorneys Dane Coulter and Cal Monroe are rivals in the courtroom and friends behind the scenes. But can they be more?

Cal’s always carried a torch for Dane, but Dane is so deep in the closet, he can’t even admit that he might be gay. His father, a raging homophobe who rules the family with an iron fist, forces Dane into an engagement—to a woman. Dane goes along with it to keep the peace and protect his mother, but for Cal, it’s the last straw.

He can’t let Dane make a mistake that could ruin the rest of his life, and he only knows one surefire way to make Dane admit what’s in his heart. But confessing his feelings to his friend could backfire, driving a wedge between them. And even then, the choice must be Dane’s—to live the life his father wants, or to give up everything he has for a chance at happiness in Cal’s arms.

Release day! Santa’s Naughty Helper

Santa’s Naughty Helper, the first book in our Lawyers in Love trilogy, is now available from Dreamspinner Press!

Shy lawyer Kevin Anderson is presented with an unexpected opportunity when he draws hunky litigator Erik Wilson’s name for their office’s secret holiday gift exchange. Kevin has pined for his friend for a long time, but he fears ruining their working relationship if Erik doesn’t return his feelings. The anonymity of the exchange gives him the chance to let Erik know someone is interested, so Kevin turns the gift into a game: twelve days of presents, each more suggestive, culminating with a Christmas Eve meeting—if Kevin finds the courage to see it through!

Erik is intrigued by his secret Santa, who has given him something to look forward to during the holidays for the first time in years. But as Christmas approaches, he realizes he doesn’t want a mystery man; he wants his best friend, Kevin. When his attempts to instigate something with Kevin fail, Erik accepts the dinner invitation of his secret admirer. Little does he suspect that Santa’s naughty little helper might be just the man to make all his Christmas dreams come true in a holiday friends-to-lovers romance that progresses from sweet to spicy for two sexy lawyers.

This is the second edition of Santa’s Naughty Helper. The second book in the trilogy, Fortune’s Slings and Cupid’s Arrows, will be released on November 8.

Up-coming Releases

As Ari knows, I’m never happier than when we have at least three works listed in our “Coming Soon!” box in the sidebar of our website, so as you can imagine, I’m thrilled that we now have nine works listed!

Dreamspinner has picked up several of our previously published works and will be re-releasing them in 2017, and we’ve gotten a contract and some estimated dates so they’ll be mixed in with our new releases.

I’m happy to say we’ll have something — new or repub — coming out almost every month in 2017, and that’s just with Dreamspinner. We’ve decided to self-publish some of the works that Dreamspinner didn’t pick up, and we’ve set a goal of getting at least one or two out before the end of 2016.

Our main goal is getting the Herc’s Mercs series out, including the 6th book, which hasn’t been published anywhere before. We did a pretty thorough revision of book 1, so our readers will see some significant differences between the repub and the original release. The main thing we changed is Jude’s characterization and his relationship with his grandmother, and we developed the antagonist’s character and presence in the story a little more.

We haven’t decided how much we’ll tweak the other books in the series; right now, our focus is on finishing a couple of new works, one of which has a looming deadline. But we’re looking forward to making the entire series available again soon!

Pulling all those works from our back catalog was ouchy, so I’m pleased so many of them found a new home with Dreamspinner, and I look forward to them being available to our readers again. We’re going to rebuild our catalog slowly but surely, and we’ve already taken the first steps toward making that happen!
