ABOUT THE BOOK

His plan: hide in plain sight. Not planned: falling in love.

Liam Connell is tantalizingly close to the end of his required sojourn in humanspace. On one hand, he’s eager to return and repair the leprechaun’s dysfunctional governing body. On the other, it means leaving behind his mouthwatering neighbor, Sal.

Salvia Rose Winter is no ordinary woman. She possesses a gene that lights up when leprechauns come near, which would blow his cover—and ruin everything he’s worked for. Yet when he learns he’s being hunted by an old nemesis from the Realm, he has no choice but draw closer to her for safety.

Sal never believed her grandmother’s leprechaun tales or that Liam will ever want her for anything other than her computer skills. But when he unexpectedly asks her out on a date, she wonders if wishes really can come true. One smoking hot night later, she’s convinced the answer is yes, oh yes.

By the time Liam realizes his plan has backfired, it’s too late—he’s fallen in love. Which makes her the target of a maniac who’ll stop at nothing to destroy Liam’s future—including murder.

Tropes: This best friends to lovers paranormal romance includes elements of disguise, a fling, a playboy, and unrequited love.

Note: This novella was originally published by Samhain Publishing in 2008. This edition has been reedited, reformatted, and updated with a new cover but has not been substantially altered.

ABOUT THE BOOK

When foul-mouthed Arliss meets the earthy-crunchy bassist for the comeback band, Blue Silver, more than sparks fly.

Arliss Pacifica Edgeworth, poor little rich girl, made friends in high school by pretending to be somebody she wasn't—a huge fan of the pop band Blue Silver. After she attempts to use her Daddy's money to treat her friends to a once in a lifetime Blue Silver concert and the limo breaks down en route, she and her friends drift apart.

Flash forward a couple decades and Arliss gets a call about a second chance at the concert of a lifetime on the Blue Silver reunion tour. A very special concert, where the former "Silverettes" can attend an after-party with the band members themselves. Should Arliss risk showing her friends…and any sexy band members who happen to be entranced by her foul mouth, bad attitude, and big ass…what's really behind her mask?

28000 words. Rated R for adult language, adult situations, rageful ranting from a dubiously likeable heroine, and drunkenness.

Author’s First Note: This story is part of a really rockin’ continuity series undertaken with authors Megan Hart and Natalie Damschroder. Hart’s story, NOTHING LIKE THE SUN, describes the concert weekend from the viewpoint of Georgie, and Damschroder’s two stories about the indomitable Cassie are LOST OUR FOREVER and REBUILDING FOREVER.

Author’s Second Note: This story was originally published as BEHIND THE MASK by Ellie Marvel via Amber Quill Press from 2006-2013. This edition is updated and tweaked, but not substantially.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Nicola Johansen, Cooley to her friends, lived a discreet, solitary life in the suburbs until she found out her new neighbor, Evan Sabello, was a shape shifter too. After accidentally getting him arrested, Cooley decides to apologize by extending the hand of friendship...with homemade apple pie in it. Not only is he the first shifter she's ever met, but he's sexy as heck. They’re practically made for each other, right? They have a special connection not even Mr. Surly Britches can deny.

Problem is, Evan's past has made him so skittish, pie and promises won’t convince him Cooley's intentions are harmless. He’s heard it all before--poor, lonely pantheress just wants companionship. Unfortunately, the first time he heard it, he ended up locked in the basement of an evil creature who tried to control him. Now that another pantheress has targeted him, he’s not going to make that mistake again.

He might give Cooley her pie tin back, but he’s not about to give her his trust. No matter how appealing she is. No matter how different she seems. No matter how much he, too, longs for an ally to help him figure out what it means to be a panther in a world full of humans who can never understand.

A 50,000 word paranormal romance

ABOUT THE BOOK

Then: Geeky science nerds. Now: Most Likely to Fall in Love

At seventeen Winifred Sampson was sure of three things. She was a nerd, she hated Peter Duvall, and her crush on the quarterback would never be reciprocated. Ten years later, she can safely revise two of those constants. She’s a sexy, self-confident woman, more than woman enough to seduce a former high school football player. She doesn’t spare a thought for that turkey Peter…until she sees him at the reunion.

My, how he’s grown!

Peter never cared that he and Winnie were the class nerds. So they were smart. So they didn’t have dates. Big deal. Now they’re both smart and successful. She was always his fantasy girl, and he’s decided to make a few of his own dreams come true…in the most carnal way possible.

All he has to do is convince her he’s graduated—with honors—from dud to stud.

Warning: This title contains explicit sexuality, bad dancing, and man-on-door violence.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Travel Queen Survival Tip #23: If you get stuck in an ice storm, find a hot guy to melt it!

Travel agent Darcy Burkell has a secret. Because she’s claustrophobic, she doesn’t precisely jet around the world despite what’s implied in her popular newsletter about vacation destinations. When she hires photographer James Jones, who grew up in the same town she did, to illustrate her stories, they become cyber-friends.

James decides Darcy might be the one woman to help him settle down–or at least someone who’ll travel with him instead of expect him to stay home all the time. Right before Christmas, he shows up unannounced and suggests they take a holiday trip together.

Darcy is too embarrassed to admit her phobia and turns him down flat. She knows what kind of woman he wants, and she’s not it. Her resolve is tested when she and James become gridlocked near the same bridge by an ice storm. Impassable roads force them to spend hours together in his vehicle…shivering. And cuddling. It’s freezing outside, but inside it gets hot enough to melt all the ice in Alaska. The question is, can their affection remain toasty after Darcy confesses her big secret?

Warning: This title contains dreadful weather, a medium-sized misunderstanding, jelly beans that taste like boogers, and coitus interruptus by redneckus.

Note: This book was previously published as Claustrophobic Christmas under my old penname Ellie Marvel. It has been reformatted, reedited, and re-covered but not substantially changed.

Herman Edward Heckley is what anyone might call a manly guy. So what’s he doing fighting off taffeta in a bridal salon? He’s maid of honor for his best friend, Caroline Oakenfeld, in her wedding to a pencil-necked geek. But the closer he gets to the ceremony, the more he begins to wonder if he’s missing out. If only he were the type of person who could figure stuff out besides hammer and nails.

Caroline is the type of person who can figure stuff out, and she’s been in love with Heck forever. Frittering her life away until Heck wises up isn’t part of her life plan, and she agrees to marry her boyfriend. But the closer she gets to the ceremony, the more she realizes she has to resolve her feelings for Heck.

For better or for worse.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Gorgeous former party girl law student Krissy LaLove has a heck of a lot riding on her slender shoulders—the care and feeding of several orphaned brothers and sisters. That’s why the vague but high-salaried job description in Creep’s List entices her to apply to be the eighteenth floor personal assistant of none other than ruthless billionaire CEO of CEO Industries, Assad Masterson.

However, Krissy quickly, ah, comes to discover the high-paying position she’s so desperate to land might mean swallowing her pride...and some other things...as Masterson introduces her to a world of dark lighting, sexual domination and binding contracts. A world where a six figure salary and company health insurance mean nothing next to satisfying one’s burning desires.

WARNING: This 6,600-word story contains a LOT of profanity, mockery, in-jokes between the authors’ split personalities, Wikipedia references, and inconsistent use of the Oxford comma. Totally on purpose.

WARNING 2: This book was originally issued under “Gladys Nutsack”. I won a bet, okay? It has not been substantially revised with this 2nd edition.
