J. A. Redmerski Joins Piatkus!

We’re delighted to announce the acquisition of J. A. Redmerski’s stand-alone romance, THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO. Set in Hawaii, this is a sexy, delightful whirlwind of a romance that’s absolutely perfect to escape with this summer. J. A. Redmerski is the bestselling author of THE EDGE OF NEVER, and we’re so happy to welcome her to Piatkus!

J.A. has also picked out her very own book boyfriend, being as it’s so close to Valentine’s Day:

As far as my ‘book boyfriend’, I’d have to say that: “My number one book boyfriend is (and no one has yet to beat him for the spot) Alexander Barrington, more intimately known as ‘Shura’ from THE BRONZE HORSEMAN trilogy. Talk about swoon! Not only is Alexander a military man, but he’s super protective of the girl he loves and will fight to the ends of the Earth for her. He’s got that bad-boy vibe, but without being bad. He’s kind and compassionate, yet mouthy and sometimes infuriating! And did I mention he’s panty-melting sexy?”

Happy Publication Day to Penelope Douglas and Erin Knightley

The sky may be grey, the wind cold and people may be struggling to shift out of holiday mode, but the January blues don’t stand a chance with us today as we release Penelope Douglas Falling Away and Erin Knightley’s The Earl I Adore.

The Earl I Adore

Sophie Wembley is about to discover two hard truths: When planning a rushed betrothal, one must not be picky; and when the perfect earl happens by, one must not be shy . . .

After receiving word that her sister has eloped, even ever-optimistic Sophie has trouble staying positive. She needs to secure her future before the scandal destroys her prospects, although she doesn’t relish the idea of a hasty marriage. But her longtime crush has just shown up for the summer festival in Bath. He may be the key to avoiding disgrace and getting a happily ever after . . . if she can bring herself to pursue him.

John ‘Evan’ Fairfax, Earl of Evansleigh, is one of the most popular bachelors in the ton. However, his easygoing ways hide a dark past he’s determined to keep secret. Evan has always kept acquaintances at arm’s length for self-preservation, but there’s something irresistible about Sophie . . . and her seductive charms may well sway the confirmed bachelor to seize a chance at love.

The Earl I Adore publishes in print and in ebook today, and is available from all good retailers. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Falling Away

Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid . . .  

K. C. Carter has always followed the rules – until this year,  when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully  arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown  for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and to make  matters worse, trouble is living right next door.

K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away . . .

Jaxon Trent is the  worst kind of temptation and exactly what K.C. was supposed to stay away from in  high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn’t give him  the time of day and the only one to ever say no. Fate has brought K.C. back into  his life – except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too  close for comfort. As they grow closer, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get  out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his  soul is nearly impossible.

Falling Away publishes in ebook for the first time today. Are ready for Jax and K. C.? We feel they were well worth the wait!

Echoes of Scotland Street by Samantha Young

From the bestselling author of On Dublin Street, ‘Scotland’s EL James‘ (Sunday Post) comes a seductive story of forgiving the past and making up for lost time . . .

Shannon MacLeod has always gone for the wrong type of man. After she drifted from one toxic relationship to the next, her last boyfriend gave her a wake-up call in the worst possible way. With her world shattered, she’s sworn off men – especially those of the bad-boy variety.

Cole Walker is exactly the sort that Shannon wants to avoid – gorgeous, tattooed, charming, and cocky. But his rough exterior hides a good man – one who’s determined to pull Shannon from her self-imposed solitude and win her heart.

As Shannon begins to open up, the passion between them ignites to blazing levels. But when her past comes back to haunt her, her fears may destroy the trust Cole has built between them – and tear them apart for good . . .

Sideswiped by Lia Riley

It was only meant to last the summer . . .

Talia Stolfi has seen more than her share of loss in her twenty-one years. But then fate brought her Bran Lockhart, and her dark world was suddenly and spectacularly illuminated. So if being with Bran means leaving her colorless NorCal life for rugged and wild Australia, then that’s what she’ll do. But as much as Talia longs to give herself over completely to a new beginning, the fears of her past are still lurking in the shadows.

Bran Lockhart knows that living without the beautiful girl who stole his heart will be torment, so he’ll take whatever time with her he can. But even though she has packed up her life in California and is back in his arms for the time being, she can’t stay forever. And the remaining time they have together is ticking by way too fast. Though fate seems determined to tear them apart, they won’t give up without a fight-because while time may have limits, their love is infinite . . .

Praise for Upside Down, the first in the Off the Map trilogu:

Upside Down gave me all the feels. Romantic and poignant, the journey of love and acceptance lingers long after the book is closed’ Jennifer L. Armentrout/J. Lynn, # 1 New York Times bestselling author

‘Must read romance . . . Upside Down is refreshing and heartfelt New Adult contemporary romance . . . Talia and Bran’s romance is a slow burn with a large serving of conflict, angst and emotion. That said, the dialogue is smart, quick-witted and enhanced by hilarious banter and Australian colloquialisms that provide laughs scene after scene’ USA Today

 

Broken by Laura Wright

The Cavanaugh brothers left behind River Black, Texas, long ago. But after their father dies, bequeathing them the Triple C, a cattle ranch that sustains their small town, they return – and confront the painful memories of their childhood home . . .

For years, James Cavanaugh has travelled the world as a horse whisperer, but even the millions he’s earned hasn’t healed the pain he hides behind his stoic exterior. Forced to tackle old demons at the ranch, James throws himself into work to avoid his true feelings. Until he meets a woman who shakes the foundations of his well-built walls . . .

Sheridan O’Neil’s quiet confidence has served her well, except when it comes to romance. Tired of rejection, she’s ready to swear off men. But after being rescued from a horse stampede by the most beautiful cowboy she’s ever met, her resolve wavers. Only, as Sheridan uncovers James’s belief that no woman is safe with him, she wonders if such a wounded man could ever give in to love, or if some hearts are too broken to be healed . . .

For fans of Joan Johnston, Pat Thayer, MJ Summers and smokin’ hot cowboys, this is sheer reading pleasure

Praise for Laura Wright:

‘Saddle up for a sexy, intensely emotional ride with cowboys that put the wild in wild west. Laura Wright never disappoints!’ – Alexandra Ivy, New York Times bestselling author

Undead and Unwary by MaryJanice Davidson

How do you out-devil the devil? For vampire queen Betsy Taylor, the answer is relative – literally – as MaryJanice Davidson‘s ‘sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny’ (Booklist) New York Times bestselling series continues . . .

First: kill Satan. Second: reorganize Hell. Sounded simple enough back then, but for Betsy Taylor, managing “down below” isn’t as easy as she’d hoped – even if she is doing it with her sister, Laura, a bona-fide Antichrist. So yes, Betsy has been shirking her hellish responsibilities, but she’s been just so darn busy these days. And she’s not just yanking Laura’s chain. There’s a brand new baby drama involving a pair of uncanny (ok, terrifying) toddler twins, an upcoming birthday party that has to be planned, and, are you ready for it? Betsy’s dad – once so very dead – has been spotted in downtown St. Paul.

Now, despite all the chaos, Betsy’s friends rally around, helping her to handle all this fire and brimstone jazz. As for Betsy’s sister and dad – they have their own surprises in store for the vampire queen. And jolt by jolt, Betsy will discover that there’s nothing as heartwarming as family. Yeah, like Hell.

If you love Darynda Jones and Janet Evanovich, this is the rip-roaring, devilishly funny adventure for you!

Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.

Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

Madoc and Fallon. Two estranged teenagers playing games that push the boundaries between love and war . . .

She’s back.

For the three years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.

I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game . . .

I’m back.

Three years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.

But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me . . .

He pushes her sexual boundaries . . .

From the moment waitress Karina meets him in a New York bar, she knows James is different. Daring. Dominating. Though he hides his true identity from her, the mysterious, wealthy businessman anticipates her every desire and fulfills her secret fantasies. Awakened by his touch, Karina discovers a wild side she hadn’t known existed and nothing is off limits.

She aches for more . . .

What begins as an erotic game soon escalates to a power play that blurs the line between pleasure and pain. Even as she capitulates to James’s sensual demands, Karina craves more. She wants his heart, his soul. She wants his love . . . and she’ll break all the rules to get it.

 

 

The fifth book in Kristen Callihan’s critically acclaimed Darkest London series set in Victorian London . . .

Holly Evernight belongs to a very special family of inventors. They have nobly served the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals for generations. And Holly may have the most special creative powers of them all. But her skills are about to be tested as she tries to save the life of a half-man-half machine whose clockwork heart is ticking down to the bitter end…

William Thorne was a rebel, a hired assassin for the SOS’s greatest rival, before he was taken, tortured, and transformed. Now his mind and soul battles with his body as he becomes less and less human. But the true fight for his humanity will be waged within his heart.

Special message from Lia Riley to her UK readers!

Hey there, I’m Lia Riley, author of the OFF THE MAP series. These books sunk their hooks into my heart and I am excited they are now available outside the United States.

Writing Upside Down, Sideswiped and Inside Out was a fun and rather surreal journey. I had a vague inkling for a New Adult story, about an American girl who travels to Australia, but originally conceived a different plot. Instead, when I started writing, Talia and Bran barged into my brain, took over and steered the action in a completely different direction (thus the series name!). Next thing I knew, I had a surly surfer who wouldn’t behave and a quirky heroine hiding her obsessive-compulsive disorder beneath a veil of self-deprecation. I had to type as fast as possible to keep up with their hijinks (those two do love their banter). Upside Down was written in one dizzy month.

Throughout these books, I explore the idea that love – real love – takes you down unimagined roads within yourself, to places you wish didn’t exist while discovering possibilities you never imagined. When you find the person up for taking that challenge with you, there’s no adventure more terrifying, pivotal or beautiful.

Talia and Bran bounce between Australia, Malawi, Antarctica and coastal California. As they are tested by life’s challenges, they discover the courage to claim love and learn that sometimes in order to find yourself, you need to venture off the map.

I threw everything I had at the page. It wasn’t easy, and often felt raw and uncomfortable, but I hope you find something special to take away from their journey. I’m so proud of Talia and Bran and where they end up. Thank you for reading!

 

xoxo

The Man PlanTracy Anne Warren

What’s a girl to do when the man she’s loved her entire life thinks of her as a little sister? For Ivy Grayson, the chance to get him to see her in a different light comes when she receives an unexpected invitation to move into his luxury New York apartment building. Manhattan also just happens to be the perfect place to pursue her wish to become a successful artist. But how many dreams can one woman expect to come true?

Billionaire financier James Jordon has everything a man could want – except love. When Ivy’s family asks him to keep an eye on their “little girl” in the big city, he agrees. But the innocent girl he knew is now a woman who knows what she wants, and how to get it. He may have promised himself to keep things platonic, but ignoring the game of love isn’t an option. Especially when Ivy is so eager to play.

 

 

Upside Down – Lia Riley

Twenty-one-year-old Natalia Stolfi is saying goodbye to painful memories and turning her life upside down with a trip to the land down under. For the next six months, she’ll pretend to be a carefree exchange student. Everything is going to plan until she meets a surly surfer with hypnotic green eyes, and the troubling ability to see straight through her act.

Bran Lockhart is having the worst year on record. After the girl of his dreams turned into a nightmare, he slunk back to Melbourne to piece his life together. Yet no amount of disappointment could blind him to the pretty California girl who gets past all his defenses. He’s never wanted anyone the way he wants Talia. A single semester abroad won’t cover something this serious. But when Bran gets a stark reminder of why he stopped believing in love, he and Talia must decide if what they have is once in a lifetime . . . or if they were meant to live a world apart.

 

Lay it DownCara McKenna

Vince Grossier is the self-crowned outlaw king around here. When his town’s slick new mayor invites a shady casino development to town, the invaders’ cut-throat takeover tactics quickly turn deadly. With the police turning a blind eye, it’s up to Vince. It’s time to fight back. It’s time to call in the Desert Dogs.

Finally free of a controlling ex, Kim Paget’s not looking to be taken for a ride-not on the back of some tattooed roughneck’s bike and definitely not in his bed. But when she finds evidence that her bosses are rattlesnake-dangerous, Kim must entrust her safety to the man who threatens danger of a whole different kind.
