Catalina has always been afraid to use her unique powers, but when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered, Catalina risks her reputation and safety to unravel the mystery.

 

But behind the scenes powerful forces are at work, and one of them is Alessandro Sagredo, the Italian Prime who was once Catalina’s teenage crush. Dangerous and unpredictable, Alessandro’s true motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to a flame.

 

To help her friend, Catalina must test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her House–and her heart. 

 

 

 

Baylor House Prime, Catalina Baylor has been afraid to use her unique powers, but she will risk her reputation and safety to help her friend unravel the mystery when her friend’s mother and sister are murdered. Powerful forces are at work behind the scenes including Alessandro, her teenage crush and his motives are unclear, but he’s drawn to Catalina like a moth to flame.  She will have to test the limits of her extraordinary powers, but doing so may cost her both her house and her heart.

 

The Hidden Legacies continue in House Baylor as Catalina steps up to the plate and becomes the Head of the House and in this astonishingly powerful book, she shows readers that she is more than capable of being as ruthless as she needs to be. Readers loved Nevada and her die hard protection of her family and everything they had and they can’t help but smile in eager anticipation to discover if Catalina has what it takes. Well, the story starts off with excitement and continues to be a non-stop buffet of action, suspense, gripping emotions and snarky wit. And to spice things up even more, Catalina and Alessandro have a push- pull relationship full of sizzling chemistry and readers just know that they would be great together but this relationship has quite a few obstacles standing in its path, not the least of is just where Alessandro stands on the whole good or bad issue. 

 

This fast paced plots keeps readers hanging on to every word with lots of thrilling suspense, adrenaline pumping action and extraordinary magical battles that has readers’ eyes flaring wide open and gasps escaping in amazement as Catalina asks one question to many and finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of danger and deadly assassins. There’s no way to put this powerful, heart-pounding read full life altering twists down once they have begun.

ILONA ANDREWS is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.) They have co-authored two New York Time sand USA Today bestselling series—the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge. They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

The Infamous Duchess

A woman with a shocking past…
Branded a money-hungry con artist for marrying the elderly Duke of Tremaine days before his death, Viola Cartwright has found refuge in her work at St. Agatha’s Hospital. No one must know the painful reason behind her marriage. She steers clear of attachments—until Henry Lowell, heir to Viscount Armswell, lands on her operating table after a duel. Charming and wickedly handsome, Lowell is one of London’s most inveterate scoundrels. Yet he may not be all that he appears.
And the man who can promise a future filled with love…
Posing as an unrepentant rake has helped Lowell avoid women pursuing him only for his title. But now that duty has finally called on him to marry, he finds himself entranced by the mysterious, independent-minded Viola. Then her late husband’s son returns from overseas, contesting Viola’s inheritance. Lowell longs to help her and sets out to convince Viola that a strategic union may be the best way to save all she holds dear. But can he also persuade her to take a chance on love…?

Crashing Into Her by Mia Sosa
Series Love On Cue (Each book is a standalone.)
Genre Adult Contemporary Romance
Publisher Avon Impulse
Publication Date February 19, 2019


“Mia Sosa delivers wish fulfillment with off-the-charts sparks.”—Entertainment Weekly

 

Relationships are a thing of the past for Eva Montgomery. Her current motto? You can’t spell “manipulative” without man. But Eva has needs, and a one-night-stand at her best friend’s wedding is the perfect way to kick off her new approach to singledom. Then a job opportunity puts her in the same city with the guy she can’t forget . . .

 

Anthony Castillo is a perpetual bachelor—no strings, just flings—a status he maintains by being honest about his intentions and never looking back. So why is he still thinking about the firecracker of a woman who rocked his world at his cousin’s wedding? It’s a question he refuses to answer, until she comes crashing back into his life, taking his emotional walls down with her.

 

When her father doubts her ability to make it in LA, Eva vows to go big and prove him wrong. With her athletic background, she’s an ideal candidate for stunt work. But first she’ll need training, and the instructor is none other than her former hookup, Anthony Castillo. Except he’s not as cocky as she remembers and he’s definitely still sexy as sin. The only problem is . . . Anthony doesn’t want her anywhere near his stunt school—or his heart.

Welcome Mia Sosa, I am so glad that you could join me today!


Readers, I asked Mia Sosa to tell us readers about the process of researching stunt work and what her heroine would have to do in order to succeed.

 

 

SOMETIMES WE WRITE WHAT WE DON’T KNOW


By Mia Sosa

 

Thanks so much to Stormy Vixen’s Book Reviews for having me on the blog today!

 

As writers we’re often advised to write what we know. In many situations, that advice makes sense. We do tend to write richer, more nuanced stories when we bring a wealth of knowledge about a topic to the table. But writers of fiction know there’s an exciting world out there ready to be discovered between the pages of a book and sometimes (but not always) research can provide enough information to help you tell a compelling tale. Take my experience, for example. I recently published Crashing Into Her, a fun and flirty romance about a one-night stand that turns into so much more when a Hollywood stunt professional trains the woman he wants to forget. Spoiler alert: I knew absolutely nothing about stunt training before I wrote the book. But I wasn’t going to let ignorance stop me from writing the story I’d envisioned, so I did what every romance writer does at some point during the drafting process—research.

 

For this project, Google was my friend. I searched for general descriptions of stunt work, studied stunt school websites to learn what courses they offered, read about the stunt industry and how a person joins the Screen Actors Guild to get stunt work, and more. I also read articles describing a day in the life of a stunt person. Oh, and I studied hours and hours of stunt training videos showing how people learn to perform stunts and the special tricks professionals use to make a stunt look like the real deal.

 

As you might imagine, most stunt people in Hollywood are men. But a spate of big-budget action flicks featuring kickass heroines—Black Panther, Proud Mary, Wonder Woman, and more—have led to a demand for women stunt actors. In fact, Ryan Coogler, the director of Black Panther, has talked about his difficulties finding stunt women to play members of the Dora Milaje in that film and his decision to use black female athletes and gymnasts to perform those roles. I thought about this when I was writing Crashing Into Her because I knew my heroine, Eva, who is African American, would need the kind of physical background that would make her a viable candidate for the kinds of gigs she’d want to land in this new environment. So Eva comes to the business with the right skill set, but she also takes it one step further by signing up for training (which, by the way, is when a lot of the fun in this book happens). As far as where she ends up on her journey to becoming a stunt professional, you’ll need to read the book to get that answer. Think of it as research—fun research at that.


Thanks so much, Mia! That is quite fascinating and I can’t wait to read Crashing Into Her! How about you, readers? Do you find what Mia had to say as interesting as I do?

She attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications and met her own romance hero (spoiler alert: she married him).

Blog Tour with Exceprt! A Duke Changes Everything (Duke’s Den #1) Christy Carlyle!

ABOUT THE BOOK

 


The Duke Changes Everything by Christy Carlyle
Series The Duke's Den (Each story is a standalone.)
Genre Adult Historical Romance
Publisher Avon Books
Publication Date November 27, 2018

 

 


In the first novel in Christy Carlyle’s sizzling Duke’s Den series, three men, intent on making a fortune, discover irresistible opportunities . . .

 

Nicholas Lyon gambled his way into a fortune and ownership of the most opulent, notorious gentlemen’s club in England. But when Nick’s cruel brother dies, he inherits a title he never wanted. The sooner Nick is rid of the estate that has always haunted him, the sooner he can return to the life he’s built in London. But there’s one obstacle—the exquisite Thomasina Thorne.

 

When the new heir to the Tremayne dukedom suddenly appears in Mina Thorne’s life, she’s flustered. Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he’s also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate.

If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind—as long as she doesn’t get too close to him.

 

With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?

Nick looked at the dark drop of honey on her skin and his mouth watered. He licked his lips and looked into her eyes. The heat there made him want more. More moments like this with her. When there was no Enderley boxing them in, no duties that needed their attention. Just Mina and the odd, undeniable spark he’d felt between them from the day he arrived.


“I’d like a taste,” he told her quietly.


Mina bit her lip, and her brows dipped in concentration. She locked her gaze on his mouth and seemed to hold her breath as she slid a honeyed finger across his lower lip.


Nick swept his tongue out to taste and reached for her hand. Flavor burst inside his mouth in a shock of floral sweetness.


“Delicious,” he whispered before leaning closer, flicking his tongue out, and tasting the tip of her finger once more. “But I honestly can’t tell whether it’s you or the honey.”

A former teacher with a degree in history, she finds there’s nothing better than being able to combine her love of the past with a die-hard belief in happy endings.

The Duke That I Marry by Cathy Maxwell

Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as “the Spinster Heiresses” . . .
Is it wrong for a woman to want more?
Not if she is a Spinster Heiress. They do not settle. Any young miss would be very lucky to find herself promised to a man like the Duke of Camberly. However, Miss Willa Reverly has watched her friends marry for love. Camberly may be the prize of the season, but she will not be “sold” to any man. She wants his devotion or she wants nothing at all.
When is a Marriage of Convenience inconvenient?
Newly named to the ducal title, Matthew Addison is determined to discover the secrets behind Mayfield, the bankrupt estate he has inherited. He doesn’t have time to coddle a headstrong heiress who is determined to ditch him over something as silly as “love.” Little does he know that his questions will place her in jeopardy. Now he must do what he must to save them both.
Could it be that in running from danger they might be racing headlong into a truly unexpected fate: falling in love?
