Happy Release Day to Barbara DeLeo!
Her Indulgence, Contract for Marriage, was released this past Saturday!
I keep getting blessed to edit great writers and books set in neat places! Barbara’s book takes place in New Zealand. Her writing sizzles with tension from page one and her hero is hot, hot, hot!
And man, the book cover she got. *fans self*
Cover for Contract for Marriage by Barbara DeLeo
Here’s the blurb:
Pregnant and alone after her ex-lover’s death, magazine editor Ruby Fleming’s not about to give up her home to the man who broke her heart—until she discovers her mother left half of the estate to somebody else, and she realizes she’s trapped.
Property tycoon Christo Mantazis wants the one thing his riches can’t buy—the villa where his mother has lived and worked as housekeeper for forty years. That it’s the same house he was banished from after being caught making love to the owner’s irresistible daughter stirs up old memories and now he wants her more than ever.
When Christo offers a marriage of convenience, Ruby knows it’s the only way for them to get what they want. Ruby needs her baby to have the link to its past, Christo needs his mother to retain her home, and for him to have the child he could never father.
But it’s another need—to have Christo again—that Ruby must resist at all costs.
I was away on vacation when this happened, but happy belated Release Day to Robyn Thomas!
Her Indulgence, His Unexpected Family, was released from Entangled publishing recently.
I love this story. It’s sweet and smart and charming. I was the Associate Editor for this book, and again, I jumped at the chance to work with Robyn. Her voice is beautiful.

Here’s the cover and book blurb:
Sometimes you have to take the leap… again.
Newly widowed with a new baby, Ren Jamieson is putting her life back together after her thrill-seeking husband’s death. But when she’s called to show a high-end property to a prospective client–a commission she desperately needs–she meets a man who makes her pulse pound like nothing she’s ever known…
Cole Matthews is more than he seems. Real estate is only part of the reason he’s in Australia–the other is to see Ren, and make amends somehow for the life lost. The last thing Cole expects is a woman whose humor, sweetness, and sexiness give him a rush greater than any he’s ever experienced…
Torn between her growing feelings for Cole and the risks of loving yet another adventurer, Ren will have to choose between keeping her feet on the ground… and taking the most dangerous leap of her life.

I do have to say I’m a bit biased… I’m her editor. But when I was offered this manuscript to edit, I read the first chapter, then reached through the Internet to snag it before someone else did. This lady? She’s going places.
Here’s the blurb:
One night of passion…
Detective Jackson Cantrell never imagined that one night with an irresistible stranger would turn his life upside down. He’s spent years living in the shadows, but Dr. Michaela Roarke awakened a passion inside him he’d buried years ago.
He never expected the woman would turn out to be the governor’s daughter…and his next assignment. The governor blackmails Jackson to secretly watch over Michaela and protect her from a stalker, or kiss his dream job at the FBI good-bye. Swearing to keep things strictly professional, Jackson moves in with Michaela. Too bad his heart can’t keep the same promise.
But when the stalker’s attacks quickly escalate beyond mere photographs to bodily harm, Jackson must race to save Michaela’s life. And he’ll have to figure out how to keep her once she discovers his lie.
