Zoë Archer will read from her novel Sweet Revenge.
IN THE BUSINESS OF VENGEANCE
When Jack Dalton escapes from Dunmoor Prison, he has only one thing in mind—finding the nobleman who murdered his sister and making him pay. But when he reaches the inn where the Lord Rockley is rumored to be staying, three well-dressed strangers are there to meet him instead. And the pretty blonde is aiming a pistol right at his head …
DESIRE IS A DANGEROUS TEMPTATION
Joining Nemesis, Unlimited has made Eva Warrick much more than the well-mannered lady she appears to be—one who can shoot, fight, and outsmart any man in the quest to right the injustices so often suffered by the innocent. She’s not afraid of the burly escaped convict, but she is startled by their shared attraction. She and her partners need Jack’s help to get to Rockley, but Eva finds she wants Jack for scandalous reasons all her own…

She is the author of the acclaimed Blades of the Rose series and the historical paranormal series The Hellraisers, the steampunk world of the Ether Chronicles (written with husband and fellow romance Author, Nico Rosso), and the gritty Victorian romance series, Nemesis Unlimited. Zoë and Nico live in Los Angeles.
Happiness was always too much for Lady Amelia to hope for.
Now all she expects is to secure her future and marry Charles, Duke of Castleberry, as arranged. But Amelia has a dangerous secret that could not only destroy her in Charles’s eyes and the eyes of society, but could also very well condemn her to Bedlam.
Baron Endsleigh, Amelia’s oldest friend, has other ideas. Ender has loved Amelia all his life. He knows her secrets, and they don’t frighten him. He plans to come between Amelia and Charles in any way he can to prevent the marriage and finally claim Amelia for his own. Though her father forbade the match years ago, Ender is determined to have her as his wife and nothing can stop him. Not even a duke as powerful as Castleberry.
That duke has hated Baron Endsleigh and wanted Amelia for, what seems to him, forever. Charles will stop at nothing to make her his, and his alone, even if that means destroying the one thing he knows she loves most in this world—Endsleigh.
Will Amelia be able to choose when one man speaks to her head and the other her heart?
None of them will find happiness until they all three learn to embrace absolute surrender.
Colorado. Canon. Curls. CJs. Chuck Norris. Born and raised in this beautiful state —very nearly with a camera in hand— Jenn LeBlanc never left. She started a family, got used to the curls, went to college, built a CJ, started a business, and totally beat the daylights out of Chuck Norris, all with a camera in hand.
From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of HER book Jenn’s control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into a completely new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers—The Illustrated Romance.
The images from Jenn’s book started a ruckus, and from there, #StudioSmexy was born. She’s since shot over 300 romance novel covers, and currently shoots custom images for very special clients.
Her second novel ABSOLUTE SURRENDER is doing its own Chuck Norris impersonation with the charts on Amazon. You can find Jenn on Twitter and Facebook sharing eye candy (NSFW) and being a total rock star.
Nico Rosso will be reading from his novel Slam Dance with the Devil.
All those wild rock stars you hear about? Some of them really are demons, sustained by the energy pouring off the audience…
Wild, destructive and immortal, rocker Kent Gaol has given up the search for his Muse—a demon’s one true source of inspiration, his forever partner. After losing the one woman he thought might be his, he’s convinced she doesn’t exist.
Hard-as-nails private investigator Nona Harris has been hired by a mysterious client to track Kent. She knows nothing of his truths, until one night when Kent tricks her on stage during one of his concerts. Amazingly, she not only senses the energy around the demons, she feeds from it…and it turns her on.
Kent never expected Nona’s response to be so intense, nor that she could enter his world and so thoroughly rock it. This is beyond a tumultuous love affair—this is a sexual and emotional bond that will change them both forever. A bond strong enough that now Nona’s shady client wants them both dead…

In Demon Rock, he takes you into the dark world of satyr rock stars and the Muses who feed them.
