The Lotus Blossom Chronicles II
ISBN: 1600430457

Parker Publishing Llc. 2008

For almost a year, Heaven pleaded with her best friend, Tanya Reed, to visit her and her husband, Hamid, in Pakistan. Not even the arrival of the couple's new baby could force Tanya to prepare for the journey halfway across the globe. When Heaven mentions Hamid's available rich brothers, the idea of hooking up with a man and money prompts Tanya to get her butt in gear. Of course, there's a hitch that develops after Tanya arrives: none of Hamid's brothers can stand the loudmouthed, gold-digging party girl. And if truth be told, Tanya shares the same sentiment of the brothers. They might be rich and handsome, but she doesn't want them. Not any of them—especially not Imran Ahmad. In Dirty Little Secrets by J. M. Jeffries, Elle Walker is a desperate woman—desperate enough to hire herself a rent-a-stud. Forced to go home to Florida for her parent's recommitment ceremony, she knows they will try to find her a respectable young Republican man that is tailor-made to fit into her parent's conservative world. So she turns the table on them by bringing Merrick Lee, a bearded, grease-under-his-fingernails mechanic. Merrick Lee has returned home after four years in Iraq. He is a man of hidden talents. Ivy Leaguer, ex-Delta Force Commando, he's just passing time until he returns to veterinarian school when he meets the fascinating, frustrating, sexy Elle Walker, and she makes him an offer he can't refuse. He'll be her pretend boy toy for the next two weeks, but only on his terms. And his terms include wooing and bedding Ms. Elle Walker.

The Critic
ISBN: 1600430325

Parker Publishing Llc. 2008

Anyone can write a book. . . At least that's what literary critic and talk show host Jared Stone thinks. After all, how hard can it be to pen a romance novel? The women who churn those books are a bunch of empty headed, bored women, and the women that read that trash are even worse. It takes no skill to either write or read the dribble. To prove his point, he's willing to walk the walk by joining a local romance writer's chapter and cranking out a silly little novel. It should be easy once he penetrates the group and uncovers the formula for writing. He's sure he can finish in a single week, no more than two. But that's only the beginning. . .\nToreas Rose has spent years crafting her novel, sweating through revisions and weathering rejections with the best of them. When Jared challenges her by promising he can finish a novel in a couple of weeks, she graciously steps aside, ready to watch the fun as he flounders through his personal learning curve at breakneck speed. And everything has a twist. . . When Jared and Toreas match wits in a contest of the literary critic vs. the romance writer, no holds are barred. As challenges, insults, and sparks fly between them things start to heat up. And quicker than you can crack the cover on a new book, the confrontation gets personal- so personal that they're creating a steamy subplot all their own. But will their ending be a literary tale of woe or a classic happily-ever-after?
