SEAN'S SWEETHEART BY ALLIE KINCHELOE

Sean has spent five years cleaning up his life. He’s shoved his past behind him and built a profitable business in the town’s most popular dance club. Falling in love with a college sophomore wasn’t in his plans. But, from the moment he rescued Talia, she brings out his every protective instinct. He tries to resist getting involved on a personal level. Talia’s persistence, however, is stronger than his will.
Despite just ending an abusive relationship, Talia finds an instant connection with a man unlike any she’s dated before. Older, tattooed, and totally inappropriate for her, Talia couldn’t keep Sean off her mind, especially once he calls her “sweetheart” in that deep drawl of his.
When Talia is in danger, they discover just how strong their relationship is. Can Sean and his sweetheart make things last when horrors from their pasts come back to haunt them and family seems determined to keep them apart?

Spotlight: Call me Valentino - Same hero, different worlds

CALL ME VALENTINO

Fall in love this Valentine's Day as USA Today and Amazon Best Selling authors come together to bring you one sexy hero written in five different genres. Call Me Valentino uses the same hero set in five different worlds. Your new book boyfriend is a cowboy, an FBI agent, A Highland Laird, a real estate developer and even a vampire. Which Valentino will be your favorite?

The Matron by Kirsten Osbourne
Since being widowed, Cassie Morgan had devoted her life to the orphans in the orphanage she'd managed. When a new church took over the orphanage and decided to turn it into a boys' home, she was both frightened and unsure about how she would make things work for the girls. Being told she had to take fifteen young ladies all the way to Texas from New York didn't make her feel better.
Valentino Hayes had spent his entire adult life searching for the younger brother he vaguely remembered. Just after finding a lead that would send him to Fort Worth, he was offered the job of driving a bus full of orphans to Texas. He jumped at the chance, knowing he needed to not only find his brother, but work while he was searching. He didn't plan on Mrs. Morgan's love for the children to turn his head. Could he convince her to travel with him? And how was he going to provide for a wife while he was still searching for his brother?

Undercovers by Jamie Lee Scott
When FBI agent Valentino "Vin" Jackson's undercover sting operation goes bad, he teams up with Special Agent Ellis Boyd of the DEA, who has some special talents of her own, to take down a drug ring working for the Mexican cartels.

The Brute and the Blogger by Olivia Gaines
Tino Boehner was up to his ears with Ebony Miller’s pot shots at him on her blog. Just as he was trying to figure out how to turn the tables, fate dumped her in his lap. Seizing the opportunity, he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse; come work by his side for a month.
A month can be a lifetime, or just enough time to make a man want to change his brutish ways.

Highlander, The Archer by Hildie McQueen
Valent made an oath to protect the McLeod clan after they rescued him as a foundling. However, after years of mistreatments at the Lairds hands, he questions his obligation to uphold his promise.
When a rival clan attacks and kills her brothers, Ariana McLeod's world is turned upside down. That she's fallen in love with the handsome archer, Valent, is a complication and a blessing at once. Amidst battles, revelations and treachery, is it possible to expect their love to triumph?

A Vampire's Penance by Jordan K. Rose
The chain of events set in motion when Rafe Valentino tries to stop his brother from making the stupidest decision of his life borders on deadly. Rafe goes from being one of the most terrifying creatures to walk the earth to requiring around the clock nursing care. As if being physically injured wasn’t enough, the senior member of The Vampire Guard has no choice but to reveal the heinous secret of his past in order to protect nurse Maddie Van Kool from throwing away her life on him.


Behind The Curtain of Call me Valentino
By Hildie McQueen

Our group of five authors planned and plotted to do a Valentine's Day anthology, but needed something to bring all the stories together.  A common thread that will weave each novella and bring them into a theme surrounding Valentine's Day is an easy thing.  Coming up with something not done before...not so easy.

The "what if?" came with the conception of my muse, the hero for my story.  As I toyed with the idea of a Highlander named Valent, archer, of course (queue the cupid reference) the muse said.  "Why can't I be the common thread?  Put me in each of the author's hands and I will play whatever role they put me in."  What a smart guy that Valentino.

Hence, I take full credit because he can't since technically he is imaginary.  I hope that you can catch glimpses of the same character in each story as he is thrown into different arenas to conquer our reader's minds and hearts.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Valentino.  Same Hero, Different Worlds.

In The Matron, Kirsten Osbourne's Valentino is a Cowboy in the 1800s
In Undercovers Jamie Lee Scott's Valentino is a modern day Detective
In The Brute and the Blogger Olvia Gaine's Valentino is a real estate developer
In The Vampire's Penance Jordan K. Rose's Valentino is a vampire in Central City
Lastly in Highlander, The Archer, my Valentino is a Highlander in Medieval Scotland

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
PUBLISHER: Piatkus Books
SOURCE: Review copy provided by the publisher
FORMAT: Paperback

Summary:


For centuries, Dethan has been trapped in a fiery inferno for defying the gods and snatching the power of immortality. Condemned to have his battle-hardened body licked by flames only to regenerate and be consumed all over again, Dethan has lost all hope-until the Goddess of Conflict appears. She will release him from torment-if he'll use his power and strength as a warrior to raise an army and defeat a fierce enemy faction of gods. Free to live as a man once again, Dethan meets Selinda-heir to the throne of Hexis-and his thoughts quickly turn from the conquest of cities to the conquest of this headstrong beauty. Betrothed to a cruel, calculating powermonger, Selinda needs a champion, and so Dethan enters into another bargain: If she will share her bed-and her body-with him, Dethan will save her city from destructive forces within and without. As the lovers ignite a searing passion, Dethan will risk all-even the wrath of the Goddess of Conflict-for a chance to make Selinda his forever.
