Because life is one big ballroom – and all we can do is dance… Former UK
dance champion Caroline Elliott has two burning passions in her life:
her sexy, young Spanish lover Antonio, and the weekly Ballroom dance
class she teaches to a diverse group of enthusiastic locals in the
small English town of Castleham where she lives. But Caroline has a
problem. The numbers attending her class have dwindled, and unless
she can somehow breathe new life into it, she will have no choice but
to close it down. A dance display at the local Arts Festival might
just be the perfect opportunity to showcase her students and pull in
those much-needed new members. How difficult could it be? With the
date of the display approaching, however, illness, affairs and
relationship break-ups threaten to crush Caroline’s hopes. As she
battles to keep rehearsals on track and soothe her students’
rampant nerves, she must also conquer the demons of a long-ago
tragedy in her own life. Will she be able to let go of her fears and
step into the spotlight once again? Heel Lead is an emotional,
passionate and poignant story that entertains while it tugs at your
heartstrings. In this short yet compelling novel, author Dawn K.
Henderson presents a captivating tale of the power of love, dance and
the ties that bind us.

Are you really up for this mad plan of Caroline’s?’ Mike plonked the tray of drinks down onto the table. After class, he and Jeannette had headed straight for the pub with Trash and Donna as they usually did. Tonight, Graham and Laura had joined them to discuss Caroline’s proposal. ‘White wine. That’s yours, Laura. Pint of Molecatcher for you, Trash. Jeannette, were you the coffee?’

Why not? What’s so scary about it?’ Graham challenged with a twinkle in his eye.

Aside from a hundred pairs of eyes watching eagerly for us to cock it up, you mean?’

Oh, come on. No-one will have a clue if we go wrong.’

Mike squeezed onto the window bench next to his wife. He didn’t look convinced.

I think that’s right.’ Donna’s nose screwed up prettily as she rummaged in her memory. ‘No, give up. Can’t remember who said it, but I do remember hearing it somewhere.’

What?’ Donna had a habit of talking in part sentences as if everyone else had an idea of what she was going on about.

As long as your top half looks good, and you look as if you know what you are doing – you know, brazen it out. Act with total confidence – your feet can get away with anything. No-one looks at your feet unless you do. They’ll all be watching your head and body.’

Rubbish!’

No, it’s true. Think about it. When you’re at a dance, do you watch people’s feet or their heads?’

She’s got a point,’ Trash conceded reluctantly.

Come on, Trash. What d’you say? Let’s go for it.’

He gazed down at her. ‘You really want to, Button?’

She nodded vigorously. ‘Yes. Apart from anything else, it’ll be fun. More importantly, it’ll help Caroline. I don’t want her class to fold and I know you don’t either.’

OK.’ He looked across at Graham. ‘I guess we’re in too. What about you, Mike?’

Mike was slouched back in the corner of the window seat looking unhappy, like a cornered animal who had nowhere to run. ‘If you lot are in, I suppose we have to be as well. Can’t let you take all the glory.’

We are quite prepared to be outshone by your supple hips and svelte, elegant physique.’ Graham’s straight face was a triumph.

Bugger off, old man.’ There was affection, not irritation, in Mike’s words. ‘What do you say, Jeannette?’

I’m totally up for it, even if just thinking about it makes me feel so nervous I want to run and hide in a cupboard. Caroline needs our help and she deserves to get it.’

That’s settled then.’ Laura leaned back, satisfied. ‘If we’re all in, and Angela has already decreed that she and Stuart will take part, that only leaves Issy and Liam.’

Dawn K. Henderson: Storyteller, poet & author
Goddess in training and ballroom diva (at least in her imagination)
12 years ago, Dawn walked into her first Ballroom dance class and the
love affair began. Since then she has tango’d and quickstepped,
waltzed and rumba’d through life. Although at the time of writing
Heel Lead, she is without a permanent dance partner, she is fortunate
enough to have good friends who lend her their men occasionally –
she usually hands them back undamaged.
As D. K. Henderson, she is the author of The Skull Chronicles series of
metaphysical adventure novels .
She lives and writes in the mystical, magical county of Wiltshire,
England surrounded by crop circles, the ancient & mysterious
stone monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury, and her own family of
crystal skulls. When she isn’t wandering the ancient downlands that
inspire her novels and poetry, you’ll probably find her pottering in
the garden, foraging in the hedgerows or attempting a nifty Cha cha
or elegant Waltz on the dance floor.

About the Book

Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expected.
Brielle Reyes may not have post-college life planned out like some of her friends do, but she figures she’ll work for her mother’s home cleaning service while job hunting for something that makes use of her history and philosophy degrees. It’ll work out as long as she doesn’t fall in love. Her last relationship was a disaster and she has no idea where she’ll be in a few weeks, let alone the rest of her life. Since the only guy in her age range she sees now on a regular basis is cantankerous if handsome client Archer Ward, she probably won’t have a hard time sticking to that vow. Probably.
Archer Ward likes very few things: illustrating as a somewhat-celebrated comic artist and his privacy. When his meddling mother hires him a cleaning service on an almost daily basis because she doesn’t fully trust her son to live on his own with his disability, he’s at first annoyed – even if his house cleaner is the most beautiful woman he’s ever spent more than a few minutes with. When he realizes her dreams may take her far outside of his restricted orbit, he has to decide whether to stifle his interest in her or risk messing up her plans to explore if there’s something more between them.
Neither can deny they’re growing a little fond of each other, even if falling in love just now makes no sense whatsoever. But how often does love ever make perfect sense?

WORTH WAITING FOR
Heart of the South #1
by Wendy Qualls
Genre: Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
Pub Date: 8/15/2017
 
A small town in the Deep South isn’t where most gay men would choose to go
looking for love. But open hearts will find a way . . .
Growing up in the Bible Belt, Paul Dunham learned from a young age to hide his
sexuality. Now he’s teaching psychology at a conservative college
in Georgia—and still hiding who he really is. If Paul hopes to get
tenure, he needs to keep his desires on the down-low. But when an old
college crush shows up on campus—looking more gorgeous than
ever—Paul’s long-suppressed urges are just too big for one little
closet to hold . . .
Brandon Mercer has come a long way since his freshman year fumblings with
Paul. Now he’s confident, accomplished, proudly out—and the
sexiest IT consultant Paul’s ever seen. When Brandon asks Paul to
grab some coffee and catch up, it leads to a steamy reunion that puts
their first night of passion to shame. But when Paul’s longtime
crush turns into a full-time romance, he receives an anonymous email
threatening to expose their secret to the world. If Paul stays with
Brandon, his teaching career is over. Yet if he caves under pressure,
he risks losing the one true love he’s been waiting for. . .
 
 
 
Wendy Qualls was a small­town librarian until she finished reading
everything her library had to offer. At that point she put her
expensive and totally unrelated college degree to use by writing
smutty romance novels and wasting time on the internet. She lives in
Northern Alabama with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, and a
seasonally fluctuating swarm of unwanted ladybugs. She’s a member
of both the Romance Writers of America and way too many online
writers’ forums.

About the Book

Is it more important to have roots or wings?

Garrett Oliver has just settled into his job as heir apparent to one of the most renowned master gardeners in the country. After a difficult few years, he’s found a home and a renewed purpose at a famed resort in the secluded Smoky Mountains. The stars seem to be aligning for Garrett as he plans a future with his college sweetheart and envisions a simple life with her in the mountains of East Tennessee.

Willow Armstrong, fresh off a painful breakup, is coming home to Knoxville to care for her ailing father. She finds herself in the right place at the right time, landing a dream job alongside Garrett—as his boss. As they are thrown together by their work, an undeniable magnetism grows between them, despite the fact that Garrett is ready to start a future with someone else.

Circumstances persist in drawing them closer, and an unexpected opportunity in Colorado prompts Willow and Garrett to wonder if a life together out west might be beyond anything either of them had dared to imagine.

About the Author

 I’m a former broadcast journalist, having covered both sports and news during my career. (That’s how I met my husband; I interviewed him on MLB opening day in 1995, and the rest is history.) I temporarily retired when we had our children, so I could be home with them full-time while they’re young. We have a fourteen-year-old daughter, a nine-year-old son, and two cats that we spoil rotten.

This seemed like the perfect time in my life to jump back into doing something I love; writing and telling stories. No one was more surprised than me when I ended up with 65,000 words in my lap last spring! I called it Walland, and it was published in August of 2016. My second book, Seeds of Intention will be published on September 5, 2017, and as we speak, I’ve started to write a new book, the third in the Hesse Creek Series.

In my spare time, I love photography and travel, preferably at the same time. My novels are inspired by favorite places I’ve traveled, each of which have left vivid footprints on my imagination. I believe a book can be steamy and sexy, while still keeping it classy. I also love to infuse my characters with great senses of humor.

About the Book

Before filming starts on her next movie, America’s sweetheart, Grace Carradine, wants a girls’ night out. As she dons a disguise to evade the paparazzi, her brown hair isn’t the only deception, so is her upcoming marriage to her co-star. Naval-pilot-turned-author, Sebastian “Bash” Baron finds his friends are pairing up and starting families. Given his history, he knows that life isn’t for him—even if the period romance he wrote is being made into a movie. Those stories only exist in fiction—or other people’s lives.

The two begin a secret romance, meant to last only as long as the starlet is on location in Bash’s hometown. When the paparazzi, obligations, and pride tear them apart, will Bash come to his senses in time, or will Grace marry the wrong man?

Excerpt

Grace leaned back against the seat, second-guessing their scheme. “What if someone sees through my disguise and starts snapping pictures, or worse, what if we didn’t give Pete Vader the slip after all.” Her chest tightened, pulse raced. Anxiety pricked her scalp. She fingered the charm bracelet on her wrist. In recent months, the paparazzo had escalated his coverage of her, even following her into the women’s restroom at Exchange LA.

“It’s not worth it, Gracie.”

Amazon

Fun Facts

  1. The yacht, The Nemesis, plays a supporting role in each book of the Out of Uniform series.
  2. While Bash is most known for his military suspense novels, a period romance about his parents is the book from which the movie, Times of Turmoil, is made.
  3. Everly, the house Grace rents while on location, is the author’s dream house—right down to the light-filled library and wraparound porch.
  4. The final chapter of Out of Time has a little kidnapping in it.
  5. If Sebastian Baron were alive, the author would have a hard time keeping her hands off him.
  6. Grace Carradine is modelled after Grace Kelly.

About the Book

“It was one stolen night. He was my soulmate and I’d never felt more alive. I couldn’t tell him I got pregnant. It would’ve ruined everything. But now his daughter wants to meet him and I need to make things right.” Another tear escaped down her cheek. “Everybody’s going to hate me.”

Three friends are rocked when a 20-year secret blows their world apart. Steamy, passionate, and unpredictable. If you like sizzling love triangles you won’t want to miss it.

Grace has kept her heart-breaking secret for twenty years – a love child she gave up for adoption. She was a penniless student – how could she raise a baby alone? Then she receives a letter out of the blue. Her long-lost daughter is searching for answers.

Her two best friends are married and don’t know one of them is the girl’s father. If Grace confesses now, the marriage will be destroyed and it will surely be the end of their lifelong friendship. But what choice does Grace have?

Set in the wilds of Poldark-country – the stormy cliffs and windswept beaches of picturesque Cornwall – an engrossing saga filled with suspense, simmering jealousy and heartbreak. Can a future be built on the quicksand of secrets and lies? Surely there can be no second chances when three friends discover they don’t know each other at all.

Exclusive Excerpt

“You’re not telling me you can do ballroom dancing?”

“My gran taught me. She said proper dancing would impress the girls.”

“Sounds like your gran knew a thing or two.”

Those sparkling green eyes were intoxicating. It wouldn’t take much to reel him in. Who was he kidding? He was already dangling from the hook. She stepped easily into his arms amongst the crowd of waltzing pensioners.

However uncool it sounded, waltzing to Glenn Miller was way sexier than jiggling about in a sweaty club. His hand on Grace’s trim waist could hardly contain itself on the outside of her top. Pressed as she was against him, she must be able to feel what she was doing to him. If he didn’t have her soon he would burst in more messy ways than one.

He brushed a strand of hair from her face and kissed her. A proper kiss, deep and searching until her mouth, with its sugary hint of cream and jam, became the centre of his universe. He broke away laughing, embarrassed by the way his heart was thudding. He was definitely losing the plot.

“It wasn’t that bad, was it?” she murmured. “Maybe we need more practice.”

He kissed her again, slow and sexy, his hands splayed at the small of her back. His thumbs drifted like feathers over her waist and up, brushing the hard peaks of her nipples through the flimsy fabric of her top. He wanted her badly but they couldn’t snog like randy teenagers in the middle of a tea-dance.

“Time to go?” he whispered, keeping hold of her hand until they were safely outside.

They hadn’t noticed the rain, although it must have been lashing the ballroom windows. All around them, stallholders scurried to pack everything up as punters made a dash for their cars. They strolled hand in hand, getting drenched as they kissed their way back to the car. Grace seemed to love it as much as he did.

She got into the passenger side, kicking off her shoes. “What a sight we must look,” she laughed as she put her muddy feet on the dashboard.

“Speak for yourself.”

But drenched, she was sexier than ever. Her top had slipped down one shoulder, so wet he could see the pattern on her lacy bra. The peaks of her nipples tormented him as he kissed her, long and hard until he heard the subtle change to her breathing.

Her top slid up. Her rosy nipples poked through the white lace of her bra, hard against his thumbs as he brushed them. He worked them free, sucking them one by one into his mouth. Until he remembered they were in a public car park and she was wearing jeans.

“You’re sexy as fuck, Grace. But I doubt you’re a back-seat kind of girl.”

She sighed and stretched, not bothering to cover her naked breasts. His head was bursting with the taste of her, his erection borderline painful. They could go to a hotel but he wanted more than that with Grace.

“I’ve got work tonight,” he reminded her. He didn’t remind her he needed the money. “Tomorrow, we’ll have all day…”

About the Book

Like a Phoenix from the Ashes, True Love Can Arise from Illness and Death.

An aspiring fashion designer, Amy’s life changes when her mother suddenly falls ill. Her mother needs life-saving surgery, and it’s up to Amy to acquire the funds.

A famous and highly valued football player, Josh has an incredible lifetime of excellence in his sport. His life crumbles when his mother and sister are killed in a car crash while on their way to see his last game of the season. Distraught with self-loathing and self-blame, Josh descends into a life of alcoholism and loose women that threatens to ruin his football career and possibly his life.

Mission Impossible?

A friend sets Amy up with a job as a PA at the LA PR Agency which represents Josh’s football team, the Gladiators. Her task is to whip Josh into shape mentally and physically for the next football season.

From Worst Person in the World to Love of a Lifetime?

Shocked to her core, Amy discovers that Josh is the worst person in the world. His daily protests, unsavory habits and loose women are unbelievable. Josh is equally annoyed with Amy. As Amy gets Josh to see some hope, a spark is kindled…

Will that spark grow into a flaming romance? Or will they return to their regular lives?

Excerpt

A series of female giggles pierced the silence. She looked upstairs to where the sound resonated and saw two women in barely there bikini’s running down the steps. Behind them was Joshua Mancini himself wearing a pair of shorts and a black t-shirt. He was chasing the women.

Amy geared herself up to meet her new employer. Even if she was appalled at the state of the house she had to make that first impression a good one.

As he got closer she saw that he was truly handsome indeed with his sleek muscle and untamed pride. What she saw online was totally drool-worthy, but those images had nothing on the real-life Joshua Mancini who was six feet six, extremely well built with a ridged wall of a chest that bulged against the soft fabric of his t- shirt. He was breathtaking to look at with his black shiny, spiky hair, tanned skin and piercing eyes with an unusual mix of blue and green. Turquoise. That was the color. It was turquoise like the sea in somewhere like the Caribbean. Not that she’d ever been, but she’d seen enough pictures.

He was the kind of man that made you want to stare, even against your will. She quickly adjusted herself and her focus. It would do her no good to go all girlie weak-kneed and turn into some babbling buffoon in front of him. She had to look professional.

He looked her over with appreciation as he made his descent down the stairs and stopped a few paces away from her, making her feel like a dwarf even in her heels that added an extra two inches to her mere five feet and four inches. The women joined him and giggled as they tried to fix each other’s hair.

“Good, the stripper’s here,” he said with a wide smile that revealed super gorgeous dimples in his exotic high cheek bones. It took her a second or two to realize that he was referring to her.

“No, no I’m from the agency,” she replied quickly.

“I’m Amy, your new PA.” That was when he looked up at her and narrowed his eyes. “If you could just point me in the direction of the office I’ll get started.”

There, that was professional.

To her surprise, however, he started to laugh. It was the usual sort of off balanced laughter you’d expect from someone who was truly wasted and didn’t know what they were even laughing at. “Those people are jokers.”

“This is no joke. I’ll take care of all your paperwork and everything.” She offered a smile.

“Ha, ha. Everything? Well, you can start in there.” He set his square jaw in a firm line and pointed to the mess in the living room. “Clean that up will you.”

Her mouth dropped. She attempted to protest but he just walked away, leaving her there to gawk at the crazy mess.

She just wants to use him for revenge. 

Him. 
A billionaire MMA fighter whose cocky smile and washboard abs make wet panties drop left and right.
She thinks she wants him for one amazing night out and end it.
Boy, did she think wrong.

He’s about to teach her how much more she really wants.

LISA
Finding out your husband’s cheating is hard.
Finding out it’s with a college girl is even harder.
The easy part? Retribution: beating him blue with a baseball bat and kicking him to the curb.
But it’s still not enough.

So when Bobby Carter, fresh out of college, blows back into town with all the intensity of a hurricane, I decide I’m not done.
Bobby’s everything my ex-husband is not. Sexy, aggressive, and intense.
Like melt me into a puddle intense.

Who cares if I used to babysit him?
He’s a grown man, now. And I mean, FULLY grown.

All I wanted was a night out with him, but one taste and I’m addicted.

BOBBY 
When Lisa Howard finally gets rid of her cheating husband, I want to take her right then and there.
I got rid of that abusive bastard and built a billion dollar empire all for her.
Nothing could satisfy my ravenous hunger but taking a bite of that sweet little thing.

So when she offers herself up to me for one night, I’m not about to refuse.
She’s nothing like the sorority bimbos at Northfield U.
She is a real woman.
Sexy, mature, and an ass so fine I would give up my billions just for a taste.

But I know a taste won’t be enough and one night too short for all the dirty things I want to do to her and that deliciously curvy body.

She’ll be mine, but not just for tonight. Forever.

This is a full-length, standalone, steamy 18+ romance. No cheating or cliffhangers, and definitely a wonderful Happily Ever After guaranteed.

Finally, he could feel what I felt. All the abuse, all the suffocating agony from living under his oppressive rule. Finally, I could give it all back to him.

Let me give you a piece of advice: it’s unhealthy to repress that much shit. So don’t.

Unless one day, you might end up beating your douchebag husband half to death.

After a good solid minute of getting his ass beat, he finally snatches an opportunity to

escape. As I take a breather, he scrambles towards the front door, running out onto the

lawn.

But he doesn’t get far.

He’s not getting away. Not today.

Cause right now, there’s a fucking animal inside me.

I chase him down and knocking him to the grass, continuing my assault with the bat.

I can’t seem to stop myself. Not that I want to.

One part of me is filled with wrathful vengeance and the other looks on a spectator, as if I’m watching a horror movie. I really like horror movies.

Suddenly, big fat hairy arms wrap around my waist, pulling me away from Donald.

Donald my husband: The liar. The cheater. The piece of shit.

God, I fucking hate him.

Wrapped up in those thick arms, I struggle helplessly, flailing like a bug on it’s back. The man who’s gathered me up in a massive bearhug is Robert Carter, our nextdoor neighbor, with his wife Patty kneeling next to the crying Donald.

Crying. Literally. Big crocodile tears.

What a disgusting faker, trying to squeeze sympathy out of our neighbors.

I didn’t hit him all that hard. I think.

Hi everyone! I’m Lilah May (well, you already know that).
I write steamy romance that will touch your heart (and your body <3) in all the right ways.
Ok, maybe it sounds a little corny but it’s true!
I make sure my books are full of hot and dirty scenes but still has that oh so important warm sentimental love.

Anywho, I’m just a girl with too many dirty thoughts going through her head and I thought I’d share them with all of you!

Though I have to warn you: be prepared!
These stunning alpha male heroes I write about are straight out of my fantasies: impossibly sexy, crazy dominant, and 110% guaranteed to make your knees weak.
So you better sit down, grab a towel and leave all your inhibitions at the door (along with your panties) because my books will make you melt and squirm with HEA love!

Side note: I like my cookies chewy and I’ve learned way too late in my life that I can microwave them for ten seconds to make them chewy again. I don’t hate on crunchy, though. Cookies are cookies lol.

Oh, and also I’m a nurse so when I get my hands on a real good book, things can get incredibly dangerous! (That’s a joke for all you stuffy wet blankets. I would never risk my patients. I love them!)
