The FORCE is heating up!

The FORCE line-up is starting to be released. I have been excited about this series since its inception - sexy cops and military heroes? Bring it on!

First up is Portia Da Costa's Eyes Of Desire.

Love at first sight? When Megan takes a summer holiday at a country cottage in order to recover from an eye operation, she doesn't expect to encounter a strong, protective stranger in her garden. Even though she can't see him properly, she can still tell that Guy is powerful, charismatic and sexy. Instinctively and instantly attracted to him, can she trust her new friend to bestow some sweet hands-on sensual healing?

The sensual descriptions in this story will show you why she has earned so many fans with her novels from Ellora's Cave & Black Lace.

Kate Burns Into The Heat is up next. And really...what could be hotter than smoke jumpers and unequited lust?

Being a firejumper is hot enough, but when Delia finds herself assigned to a remote cabin for two weeks with fellow firejumper Cooper Tallman, things begin to really heat up. She and Coop take care of all their assignments at the post while doing their best to ignore the growing attraction between them. They manage to keep their internal fires at bay until one afternoon when circumstances throw them into such close contact they can't ignore their smoldering bodies. When duty calls they, of course, answer. But the forest around the couple is not the only thing ablaze and they begin to realize they cannot ignore their feelings for much longer--or can they? After all, in a wildfire anything can happen. There are no guarantees, and not every flame can be extinguished.

Cara North's Fraternization rounds out the titles out now. Realistic characters with flaws and quirks that grow on the reader, and each other make this story work.

Some rules were made to be broken. When a Gunnery Sergeant fools around with a Captain it can put both of their careers at stake. Gunnery Sergeant Scarlett King took a risk, took a break, took a lumberjack to bed, or so she thought. Captain Ezekiel Major needed an escape, found it in a stranger, then found out they had broken a very strict code of conduct. It's so wrong, but feels so right!

Every week brings new FORCE titles...collect all 12!

Did y'all know...Portia DaCosta has a FORCE HeatSheet coming?

Available from June 07 [UK] & August 07 [US]


Acting purely on instinct, I coil my arms around him. I can't believe this is happening and I can't believe what I'm doing. This new, different, impatient me takes the initiative and presses her tongue against his lips, demanding entrance.

He laughs, the sound deep and rough in his chest, and he admits me. Then a second later, it's like he throws a switch and he takes total control.

When vibrant, forty-something widow Annie Conroy espies her new neighbours Maria Lewis and Robert Stone having kinky sex in their back garden, she decides it’s time that she too woke up and smelt the erotic roses. And where better to begin her daring adventures than the luxurious Waverley Grange Country Hotel, and its hidden den of iniquity, the chintz-clad but wickedly pervy Suite Seventeen? Under the stern but playful eye of exotic master Valentino, Annie quickly discovers the shocking hidden depths of her own sensuality, and surrenders herself body and soul to his outrageous games of power.

But when the Waverley’s entire future hangs in the balance, and Annie has the means to help save it, dare she gamble on going one step further… and giving her heart to the mysterious man who’s come to control her?
