Content Note: This book contains scorching sex scenes and adult language. It’s intended for Adults 18 and over.



“Come on, Chelsea. Let’s get you inside.” Alex opened her car door.

She’d been so lost in her thoughts about his yard that she hadn’t even realized he’d gotten out of the car. With a sigh, she turned and let him help her out of the car. She strolled along the path to the side entrance along with Alex. The side entrance opened into his large kitchen.

She’d dreamed of kitchen like this. Dark gray granite topped the counters. What really made her envious though was the cabinet space. All those gorgeous light oak cupboards and she knew for a fact most of them were empty.

He locked the door behind them. She continued pacing forward. Alex snagged her wrist before she moved out of reach. She glanced back at him. His eyes glittered with hunger and tension.

His hand tightened. He tugged her close. She stepped willingly up to him. His arms wrapped around her, strong and secure. She leaned into him and savored the solid press of his body. With a sigh, she relaxed into the sanctuary offered in his embrace.

He held her tight against him for a moment, before he lifted her off her feet and kissed her. One of his arms slipped under her ass, holding her up as his other hand skimmed up and down her back.

Her mouth opened to the thrust of his tongue against her lips. She delighted in the touch. Her body heated. She wanted him right here.

Author Interview, Giveaway and more with Beverly Ovalle

Today I’ve got an interview with fellow Red Hot Author Cafe writer Beverly Ovalle.

  1. What does your writing process look like? I usually have one tab open to the internet so I can look up anything I think I need while I write. I’ve been trying to work within a plotting framework but I’m a seat of the pants kind of girl.
  2. Do you have any strange writing habits? Can we say messy? I usually end up writing all snuggled in my bed in front of my laptop. I have an old hospital serving tray type thing that I picked up at the thrift store that is perfect for my laptop so it is in front of me with another section that holds my various beverages and a snack, my phone and kindle. Once I’m comfortable in my nest I start to write.
  3. What is your favorite/least favorite part of the writing process? Remembering my characters personal characteristics. I try to write the basics all down but if I forget I have to go back and read what I’ve written and end up editing everything to get back to where I left off.
  4. Is there a subject you would never write about? I would never write about cheating on a spouse. I don’t read them either.
  5. How important are names in your books? How do you select names? Sometimes they are just names I like, but most of the time, I search baby books to find a name that matches something about the character. I don’t always remember them though! But it is important to start the book that way for me.
  6. What literary character is most like you? Um, I’m a comic book kind of girl. So I’m going to say Wonder woman. <grins>
  7. What is something you want to accomplish before you die? I’m not sure so bear with me while I ramble. I’ve jumped off a cliff into a sink hole, I’ve climbed a pyramid in Mexico. I’ve travelled around the world with the US Navy. I’m married, have two children, written and published books. I’m in a career I enjoy. I’ve never wanted to climb mountains or jump out of planes. Maybe I would go to culinary school. I love to cook. And learn to properly can food. I’d love to be able to do that.
  8. Where is one place you want to visit that you haven’t? Europe. Is that too broad? I want to visit a castle, see Piccadilly Square, walk in the Highlands, kiss the blarney stone, see that great art work in the Louvre and see the coliseum. I’d love to see Egypt but with the way the Middle East is, I don’t think I will ever go there.
  9. What books/authors have inspired you? Too many to name! Every author inspires me to create.
  10. What are you working on now? I am working on a dragon shifter book tentatively named A Dragon’s Treasure. I’m on the last chapter before sending it out to beta readers. Hopefully it will be out this year or early next year. I am also editing a military romance, Love Me Forever that will be coming in July in an anthology with Secret Cravings Publishing. I’m also working on edits on Stealing Hope A Dragon’s Fated Heart that will be coming to Ardent Books in August or September.

Saints Salvation - Banner


Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he knows was meant to be his.

A Saints Salvation - Teaser 1Petty Officer Angelina Jones’ life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. Knowing Saint received a ‘Dear John’ letter, Angelina has no intention of being his rebound romance. She needs to be loved for herself. She needs to forget about the one man she knows was meant to be hers.

They each try to find someone to help them forget.

But what does fate have planned for them?






A Saints Salvation - Teaser 2Nick quickly took advantage, pressing his hand deeper as he raised her up, her ass on his forearm. Angelina squirmed, rubbing against him. Nick bent and sucked a nipple into his mouth, teasing it through the silk. He slid a finger in and out of her heat, lightly rubbing her clit with his thumb. Angelina moaned and tightened around his finger. Pressing her close against him, Nick increased his thrusts. Nick bit her nipple and was rewarded with a cry as Angelina clamped down, drenching his hand as she came apart in his arms.

She placed her head against his shoulder, shivers running through her while her arms and legs tightened around him. Nick pulled his hand free from her warmth and licked his fingers clean, making smacking noises as he did.

“Pig.” It was so low Nick barely heard the comment. Nick chuckled as Angelina giggled in his arms.

“Did you want another glass of champagne?” Angelina shook her head and squirmed against him. Nick squeezed her to him, enjoying the feel of her, despite the tightness in his groin. “Are you ready for dinner? Or shall we just head straight to dessert?”



A Saints Salvation - Teaser 4Corporal Nicholas ‘Saint’ Santiago
Saint is serving in Afghanistan when his heart is broken over a ‘Dear John’ letter. Everything seems to get worse at that point. Normally a happy go lucky kind of guy he seems to have lost his optimistic view of life. The only thing that stirs his interest is ‘Doc’ a female medic assigned to the FOB. Not wanting anymore entanglements, he ignores her. He knows that he needs to go home to find the place he belongs and bring back the man he was.

Angelina ‘Doc’ Jones
She had the hots for Santiago but everyone knew he’d been dumped. Doc didn’t want to be the rebound. She joined and became a corpsman against her parent’s wishes, knowing just that she had to serve. When the grenade changed her life, she needed reassurance and someone to love her despite her disability.

Original: I dig my nails into his lower back and tug him closer. He leans in for a kiss before he raises his chest and picks up the pace. I open our connection and send him images of how I see him moving his powerful body undulating over me, pushing me to the edge of ecstasy.

She’s unready to face her past, but she may have no choice.

It may be her best friend who gets surprisingly accurate hunches about the future, but Chloe just  knows something big –and bad—is about to happen. She telepathically communicates with animals and shape-shifters, but her growing psychic abilities are beginning to scare her. She suspects her mother also had abilities, and when those powers grew beyond her control, she left her daughter and husband when Chloe was only ten.

Despite her worries, she won’t let anything interrupt her trip to Scotland to meet her shape-shifter boyfriend’s family. Meeting Jorge’s close-knit family and spending the Holidays with them is worry enough!

When his sister goes missing, her disappearance is linked to a shadowy organization that knows exactly how to hide her from her shape-shifting relatives’ tracking ability. What they don’t count on is Chloe’s psychic gift.

In the rush to find Jorge’s sister, Chloe loses control of her ability and accidentally harms an animal’s psyche. Ridden with guilt, she’s afraid her ability just might destroy her relationship with Jorge. She isn’t ready to find her mother and face her past, but she may not have a choice if she wants to ensure she never harms anyone again.
