Can you believe 2012 is already over? Well we authors, readers, and bloggers sure can’t. And to celebrate the New Year with bang, we’re going crazy and sending out so many prizes, fun parties, experiences, and other goodies, that it’s a bit scary. Each author has a favorite New Year memory, book, idea, or way to party and we’re going to show you!
How I Celebrate the New Year
For the past 49 years, my mother’s relatives have celebrated the New Year by gathering on New Year’s Day. My grandparents began the celebration as a way of uniting their 17 children, along with spouses and grandchildren. It started out small, if you consider over fifty people, a small celebration. 🙂
Over the years, the family has grown, and at times, more than one hundred people attend the party. It’s a blast and a great time to catch up with relatives I don’t see often. Unfortunately, these days, I’m the relative that isn’t often seen since I live on the West Coast and my family is on the East Coast.
Now, my usual celebration involves watching the count down on television with my husband and children. This year though, we did something a little special, involving a certain castle and fireworks. You might recognize it.
Dana Delamar’s Revenge, the first book in her Blood and Honor romantic suspense series, where the sex is as gritty as the suspense story.
A woman on the run. A damaged Mafia don. A rival bent on revenge…
Mafia don Enrico Lucchesi struggles to preserve a fragile truce with the Andretti family. But when Kate Andretti flees from her abusive husband, Enrico won’t leave her in jeopardy. Can he save her without reigniting the bloody feud between the families?
A violent clash of cultures and nations tests the forbidden love between a Native American man and a white female cop.
When beautiful police sergeant Alyssa Morgan enters his life, Rémi Whitedeer never expects her to upend it. Not only does she have his hormones in an uproar, she’s also threatening to take the position he wants—Chief of Police for the Iroquois Blackriver Reservation. But Alyssa is more than a Barbie cop. Her ends-justifies-the-means philosophy, so different from his own, challenges Rémi on every level. With her sharp investigative skills and her fearlessness, she leads Rémi to confront bitter truths about his family and his standing as a man of mixed race within his tribe.
Tall hunky Rémi Whitedeer, of the panty-melting grin and the smoldering green eyes, flips Alyssa’s world ass over teakettle. She’s always had a laser-like focus on the job, but Rémi proves a constant distraction. His inner strength and sense of purpose strip away the winner-take-all attitude Alyssa wears like armor. Soon she’s longing for more—a more that terrifies and intrigues her. If he finds out the fine line she’d walked while undercover, will he still want her? And will she ever find the courage to let him—or anyone—that far in?
When Alyssa and Rémi uncover a drug-fueled scheme involving a biker gang from Alyssa’s past and a militant sovereigntist group led by Rémi’s cousin, they are forced to choose between their growing love for each other and the lives they’ve worked so hard to build. Will Rémi and Alyssa have to leave everything behind—even their identities—for the chance of a future together?
