At the powerhouse law firm of Knight & Payne, winning comes first and ethics a distant second. Leary Michaels uses her female charms to daze opponents, and it’s always worked well—until now. On her most personal case yet, she finds herself going up against a defense attorney just as skilled, shameless, and seductive as she is.

Reeve Holloway has never met a woman as sure of her own sexuality, or as ruthless in wielding it, as Leary is. But he won’t be toyed with. What Leary starts, he’ll finish—in the courtroom, the bedroom, or any-damn-place he wants. The sex is uninhibited, electrifying, and absolutely against the rules. Reeve’s job is to ruin Leary’s case…even if it destroys her in the process and costs him the woman he’s come to love

All Hallows Eve - Cover

Amazon eBook ** Amazon Paperback

  Excerpt: Come to me. Please, come to me. The words seemed real to Elyssa Adair, like a whisper in her mind, as she looked up at the old mansion. The Mayberry Mortuary was decked out in a fantastic Halloween décor, customary each year starting October 1. It sat high on a jagged bluff near the waterfront in Salem, Massachusetts. Just driving toward it, at night, was like being in a horror movie. Dense trees lined the paved drive and it was surrounded by a graveyard. The old Colonial building, when captured beneath the moonlight, seemed to rise from the earth in true Gothic splendor. She shivered and looked around at her friends, wondering if the words had been spoken by one of them. Vickie Thornton and Barry Tyler sat in the backseat, laughing with one another and making scary faces. Nate Fox was driving, his dark eyes intent on the road. No one in the car had spoken to her. She gave herself a silent mental shake. She could have sworn she’d actually heard a whisper. Clear as day. Come to me. Strangely, she wasn’t afraid. She loved the artistry of Halloween—the fun of it—and few places in the world embraced the day like Salem. This was home and she loved Salem, despite the sad history of witch trials and executions. A lot of that was steeped in lure and myth, but the local Peabody Essex museum and other historic venues seemed to go out of their way to remind visitors of the horror that came from petty jealousy and irrational fear. “Boo,” Nate said, leaning toward her. She jumped with a start. She’d been deeply involved in her thoughts and the view of the old mansion. Nate, Vickie, and Barry all giggled at her surprise. “Do you have to do that,” she murmured. He frowned, his eyes back on the road. “Elyssa, we’ve done this every year since we were kids. So are you really scared now?” “Of course not,” she said, and tried to smile. She loved Nate. They were both just eighteen, but they’d been seeing one another since their freshman year. She was young, as everyone kept reminding her, but she knew that she would love him all of her life. Despite them being opposites. She was a bookworm, born and raised in the East, red hair and green eyes. He was from South Dakota, a Western boy, whose mom had been from nearby Marblehead but whose dad had been a half Lakota Sioux. He was tall and dark with fabulous cheekbones and a keen sense of ethics and justice. He was their high school’s quarterback, and she was debate team captain. “Don’t be silly,” she said. “Last year, I played a zombie, remember?” And what a role. She’d arose from the embalming table and attacked one of her classmates who’d played the mortician, terrifying the audience. Nate grinned. “That you did. And what a lovely zombie you were.” Please. She heard the single word and realized no one in the car had spoken it.   All Hallows Eve - RDL Teaser 2   About ALL HALLOWS EVE: A Krewe of Hunters Novella Salem was a place near and dear to Jenna Duffy and Samuel Hall—it was where they'd met on a strange and sinister case. They never dreamed that they'd be called back. That history could repeat itself in a most macabre and terrifying fashion. But, then again, it was Salem at Halloween. Seasoned Krewe members, they still find themselves facing the unspeakable horrors in a desperate race to save each other—and perhaps even their very souls.   All Hallows Eve - RDL Teaser 1       Heather Graham HeadshotAbout Heather Graham: New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Heather Graham majored in theater arts at the University of South Florida.

She gets all fidgety and nervous and adorable under my scrutiny, so I release her. Albeit reluctantly. “So, a minivan,” she says, dropping her eyes and clearing her throat. I love that I put her off balance. I doubt much gets under this girl’s skin and I’m happy as hell that I appear to be making my way in, slowly but surely. “A minivan,” I confirm, raising the wine bottle and glass questioningly. “Oh, sorry. Kitchen’s through there.” Katie points to the most obvious doorway and I head in that direction. She follows after a few seconds. When I stop at the small island, she breezes past me, setting down the glass that I brought her and keeping her face averted. Makes me think she might be blushing again. After she rummages through a drawer for another minute, she turns her composed self back to me, a corkscrew in one hand. “There has to be a story behind it.” “Behind what?” I ask, content to just watch her rather than talk. Or think. Her grin is more pronounced this time. “Behind the minivan.” “Oh, right. The minivan. I have a brother who came with me. He’s handicapped. I dropped him off at the gym on the way to the park.” Her expression softens. Visibly. “Y-you have a handicapped brother?” “I do.” “And you . . . you take him places with you? You take care of him?” I shrug. “Well, I don’t know about that. I mean, he’s grown, so . . .” “Does he live with you?” “For the most part.” “That’s . . . that’s . . .” Katie is looking at me like she’s just now seeing me. Really seeing me. After several seconds, she glances down at the counter, at the glasses she’s arranging in a straight line with the bottle of red. “That’s very kind of you. I’m sure he appreciates it.” “I’m sure he does, but like most guys, he’s got a piss-poor way of showing it.” “Just like a damn man,” she says softly, glancing up at me from beneath her lashes, the hint of a playful smile still curving her lips. “Bastards,” I reply. Her eyes sparkle up at me and it takes every ounce of willpower I have not to haul her into my arms and kiss her senseless. Which might take a while. She’s got plenty of sense about her. Too much, maybe. After a minute, when the temperature in the little kitchen is rising noticeably, Katie clears her throat again, pulling that swath of rich auburn hair over her shoulder like I’ve seen her do before. “So what is it that you drive when you’re not carting your brother around?” “Maybe if you’re nice to me I’ll show you one day.” She grunts indignantly, her lips parting yet still curved. “I’m always nice to you.” “But you could be nicer,” I tell her with a half-grin. She raises one dark brow, the sexiest damn thing I think I’ve ever seen on a woman. Besides her licking the corner of her mouth when she’s concentrating or nervous, that is. “And just how . . . nice are you expecting me to be?” “Not that nice,” I answer. “Unless you just want to be that nice. I would never argue if you wanted to be extra, extra, extra nice to me.” I give her my widest, most innocent smile. She laughs outright, an action that fills the kitchen with a delicate tinkle and turns her face from beautiful to breathtaking. A display like this from her is pretty rare, so pulling it out of her makes me feel like I’ve won the lottery. “Do that again,” I request quietly, so drawn to her that I can’t stop myself from moving closer, from reaching out, from touching. “Do what again?” she asks. When I cup her silky cheek in my palm, she straightens, but she doesn’t back away. A good sign. “Laugh.” “I can’t laugh on command,” she explains, her eyes flickering up to mine and away, up to mine and away. “I swear to God, I think I’d do just about anything to hear that again, to see your face light up like that.” My thumb blindly stroking the crest of her high cheekbone, I catch and hold her eyes this time. They’re like melted sapphires, a fathomless liquid that I could easily let myself drown in. Katie’s lips open and close a couple of times, like she’s trying to find words where there are none. But the time for talk is over. I feel like I’ve waited patiently for an eternity to taste, and now it’s time for my reward. Slowly, I bend my face toward hers, hoping she won’t move away, praying that she won’t stop me. “You’ve been on my mind since the first day I saw you, Beautiful Katie. It’s time you give me the answer to a question that’s been haunting me for weeks.” I can feel the sweet, shallow puffs of her breath fanning my lips as I get closer. “W-what’s that?” “Do your lips taste like cotton candy?” “How would I know?” she asks a bit dazedly. “Give me five minutes and I’ll tell you.” I bring my other hand up to hold her face still as I brush my mouth over hers. When she doesn’t move away, doesn’t push me away, I sink into her lips like I might sink into a bed made of marshmallows. Sweet, plump, light-as-air marshmallows. And, God help me, Katie sinks right back.   Oct 5, 2015

Cover Designer: Claire Smith
Darkness shrouds Noah James’ past. Drugs, alcohol, abuse—they cloud the few memories he has and threaten to eat away at his future. The only brightness in his life is Caitlyn Hale. She came crashing into his world the day he met with her father, the sports agent who could possibly give him a new start. That day, he left the agent's office with a professional fighting career ahead of him and the image of a hazel-eyed beauty imprinted in his soul. 

Rarely does life offer a glimpse of happiness without snatching it away. Just like he's always feared, the monster that haunts him comes roaring back. His entire life shatters, threatening to return him to the darkness he came from. The light-heavyweight champion is about to face the fight of a lifetime. He can only hope to make it through each round without losing the few things he has left.

EXCERPT:

Noah then lost a lot of his careful control. His hands roamed her body restlessly, following each curve and lingering on the ones he enjoyed the most. Her moans betrayed her desire, slipping between her lips and into the kiss every few seconds. They punctuated his touches. Every squeeze was followed by a breathy whimper.

“Arms up,” he demanded, tearing his lips off hers and reaching for the hem of her shirt. Caitlyn did as she was told, and he pulled the shirt over her head, discarding it blindly. His green eyes were molten with desire as they fastened on her breasts. She heard the groan that tore through his throat as he reached for them. They were heavy and full even in his large hands, still spilling over his fingertips.

“Perfect,” he murmured, rubbing the pad of his thumb over the pink, tight tip of her breast. One of his hands fell to her waist, directing her as she rose, bringing both perky nipples level with his mouth. He was quick to give them both attention. He left her skin pink and sensitive in his wake as he switched from one to the other.

Blurb:

She was in Hell.

No one believed her.

Wasn't kiss-n-tell.

More like destroy and shatter.

Hardened and hurt, Sara Collins is determined to start over--try something new.  Moving away from her painful past and refusing to let them win, she begins putting her life back together and planning a future for herself.

Falling in love with Izach Matthews was not part of Sara’s plan, but the attraction is immediate. Her heart races; her pulse quickens.  She can't deny her feelings.  For the first time in her life, Izach treats her like a lady--like a woman should really be treated.  What draws her to him the most:  he doesn't look at her like she's fragile and broken.  But when her past is ripped open again, slapping her in the face, Sara's afraid he can't handle it--won't handle it.  How can she pick the pieces back up and put her heart back together when it may shatter all over again?

Their love burned bright, white hot, and strikingly blue around the edges.

Some thought them careless.

Some thought them crazy.

No one approved.

Taylor Barrett was looking for answers in a universe that had abandoned him.

Jude Boehler flooded her dark world with charisma and mystery, drawing everyone into her hurricane.

It was a most captivating of love affairs. They were shooting stars, meteors in the sky, colliding to create a spectacularly wonderful reckless romance, leaving them breathless and tethered.

But that’s what Love does.

Their souls were exposed to the chaos, bare and vulnerable. Can these two star-crossed lovers survive the madness that is life?

Excerpt:

Entering his building made her feet lighter. She was being carried on the wings of euphoria, each step easier than the last. She wasn’t walking to her future. She was running toward it. Taking a breath, she held it, and knocked on his door.

The door opened and he stood there with his lips parted and confusion furrowing his brow. “Jude?”

Throwing herself forward, she jumped up and wrapped her body around his and kissed him. Then again. He kicked the door closed and held her against it. When they parted, they remained close enough to share their panting breaths. He said, “You’re here.” When he pressed his abs against her center her head knocked hard on the wood and he kissed the exposed skin of her neck where it met her shoulder.

He was strong. He was virile. “Hey,” she said, bringing his face up to see hers.

Lowering her down until her feet touched, he said, “I thought we were meeting at the park?”

“I couldn’t wait.”

His glorious smile chose to shine on her. “I’m glad you didn’t. Do you want to go to the bedroom?”

Giggling, she replied, “Yes, so much, but I need to talk to you first.”

“Okay.” He walked to the couch and she stared gob-smacked by his allure. Jeans that hung low. No shirt. Boxers peeking out the top, but a V that directed her eyes below the waistband. He was a tease as he stood there waiting for her to join him. Sitting on the couch, he patted it. “C’mere.”

She started walking on shaky legs. As she passed the bar, she debated if she should stay there to save her clarity. That seat next to him was tempting, but she knew she’d be flat on her back within seconds. So she hurried to his side and sat down. His hands were instantly on her.

Excerpt: 

“You’re not going to leave me to cool off alone, are you?” He unbuttons his jeans and slowly lowers the zipper. Is he seriously about to get naked? I watch and wait for his next move. His eyebrows lift and he slowly lowers his jeans. My breath hitches. Damn him for being so hot. He moves his hands to the waistband of his boxer briefs and I jump up.


“You remove those and you won’t make it into the water.” I take off my tank top and throw it towards the ATV, missing it. Jake chuckles as he watches me kick off my sneakers and pull off my socks. I couldn’t care less if they get dirty. I remove my shorts and his eyes darken.

“Well, are you just gonna stare at me or are we goin’ for a swim?”

“We’re goin’ for a swim,” he drawls.

Jake leaps forward, grabs me and throws me over his shoulder before running into the water. I scream at him to put me down and slap his ass. He doesn’t budge and only flips me over once we’re deep in the lake. I come up from under the water and brush the hair out my face to find a smiling Jake in front of me. I splash water at him and he laughs.

“That was not nice!”

He swims closer to me and wraps his arms around my waist. “You’re even more gorgeous all wet.”

“Don’t try to sweet talk me.”

“I’ll never stop sweet talkin’ you, darlin’.” He leans in for a kiss.

“Flirt,” I murmur against his lips.

“You are the only one I wanna be flirtin’ and kissin’ with.”

Jake runs his hands up and down my back. My skin tingles against his touch and I shiver. His knowing smile spreads across his face. I wrap my arms around his neck and kiss his cheek. I smile and lift a brow. I feel him hardening against me, and I move my body against his.

“You may make my skin tingle, but I make your dick tingle too.” Jake throws his head back laughing and moves his hands to my hips to stop me from moving.

“The things you say. Keep that up and we won’t have any clothing covering us up.”

“I won’t object.”

I have a confession. In a former life, I was a poor but proud Victorian governess. That's the only obvious explanation for my obsession with governess stories.

I've read and re-read Jane Eyre and always fiercely wanted to be like Jane — proud, independent, clever and the winner of a noble (and rich) man’s heart.

I've seen “The Sound of Music” innumerable times and each time I'm swept up in the magnificent scenery, the thrilling music and the story of the poor but feisty governess who captures the noble (and rich) man’s heart.

For me, there’s something eternally enticing about the tale of a woman who endures personal hardship, tames unruly children, and at the same time finds, to her surprise, that she is irresistible to the master of the house. These women are seldom beautiful, not necessarily well-born, and actively resist love's allure. Yet love in the shape of a tall, dark and autocratic gentleman finds them, captures them, and by the end of the story they are wed to that nobleman and enjoying all the advantages of wealth, privilege and the best sex in the world.

The Governess Brides series begins when Distinguished Academy of Governesses opens its doors to train young women for respectable occupations:

Unfortunately, in RULES OF SURRENDER, Miss Charlotte Dalrumple discovers her first position is to teach Lord Wynter Ruskin, sadly uncivilized by his travels abroad, to take his proper place in society. Hint: it doesn't go well.

In RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, because of his unrepentantly disreputable ways, the Earl of Kerrich is in trouble with the queen. His solution: hire a governess and obtain an orphan to raise. That will make him appear respectable. Trouble: the kid is charming, he's falling in love with the unattractive governess … but other than that, what could go wrong? … Oh, so much.

In RULES OF ATTRACTION, Miss Hannah Setterington travels far into the lonely English countryside to take a new position and hears rumors that the master killed his beautiful young wife. Could any situation be worse? Yes, it could, for she knows the rumors are not true … because she is his runaway wife. 


With eleven full-length books and one novella, the Governess Brides is my longest-running and most-popular historical series (six of the titles are on the Goodreads List of Best Governess Romances.) So when Avon Books announced they would repackage the books to introduce them to a new audience, and showed me the concepts, those compelling heroes with their direct gazes drew me at once into the stories.  I promptly sat down with the Rules books to reacquaint myself with the characters and stories and — guess what? I ended up reading them from beginning to end and living, laughing and falling in love along with my governess heroines. I've always said I write the books I want to read. I hope you read and enjoy the Governess Brides, too!
