To rescue her was to rescue his own soul.

On a cold Parisian night, Vicomte Aleksender de Lefèvre forges an everlasting bond with a broken girl during her darkest hour, rescuing her from a life of abuse and misery. Tormented by his own demons, he finds his first bit of solace in sheltering little Sofia Rose.

But when Aleksender is drawn away by the Franco-Prussian war, the seasons pass. And in that long year, Sofia matures into a stunning young woman—a dancer with an understanding of devotion and redemption far surpassing her age.

Alongside his closest friend, Aleksender returns home to find that “home” is gone, replaced by revolution, bloodshed, betrayal—and a love always out of reach. Scarred inside and out, he’s thrust into a world of sensuality and violence—a world in which all his hours have now grown dark, and where only Sofia might bring an end to the winter in his heart.

Inspired by the 1871 Paris Commune, The Frost of Springtime is a poignant tale of revolution, redemption, and the healing power of love.


She smiled and reached for his face. “Let me have you in the most intimate of ways, let me give you a part of myself that no other man may touch. Make me yours forever.”

Aleksender responded with his caress. Broad, weathered hands skimmed over the valley of her curves as he traced each and every bend. He pressed a wet line of kisses down her neck, her torso—felt a sharp intake of breath as he ventured lower … lower …

Dark Wolf Enterprises

Murder, mayhem and imprinting with a hot wolf shifter… And they say being an accountant is boring.


The big break Trudy Hollander’s small accounting firm needs has finally arrived, but unfortunately it comes with murder, mayhem and Kristof Farkas, a man she just can’t seem to resist. Even worse, Kristof is the CFO of Dark Wolf Enterprises—the one person who can pull the plug on the job that will take her company to the next level.

And then there are the assassins who can jump from three stories up and still be able to run away…

William helps Molly see that her dream is worth pursuing while she shows him maybe he doesn’t have to be alone after all.

Anya Richards
Three Strikes

Two lonely men. One secret affair. Irresistible passion that will push them both to the breaking point, and beyond.


A knife attack left ex-Jamaican Posse member Vincent Williams scarred and also made him re-evaluate his life. He’s out of the gang and also the closet but lonely, yet to meet a man who’s interested in more than a one-and-done, a brief sexual encounter.

Because of his career as a police officer, Sergeant Kyle Pictou is afraid of coming out. Normally he doesn’t play close to home, but something about Vincent compels him to take a chance. It’s just sex, after all. Yet, as desire evolves into friendship and seemingly boundless passion, it’s Kyle who’s left wanting more—though he knows he can’t have it.

Cynthia D’Alba
A Cowboy’s Seduction

One exhausted cowboy + One uptight account x A tropical resort = A hot seduction. But who is seducing whom?


Brock Wade has raised his brothers and sister since their parents’ deaths fourteen years ago. All work and no vacation can make a cowboy a tad grumpy, or at least that’s what his family and crew believe. Brock wants to spend the two weeks before Christmas working as usual. Instead he’s forced by his siblings to take a vacation to the Sand Castle Resort…a vacation he doesn’t want to a Caribbean resort he’s never heard of. He’s sure he’ll be miserable the whole time.

Natalie Diamond is dreaming of getting out of icy Memphis and down to her parents’ oceanfront condo for a couple of weeks of rest and warmth. When her parents accept an out-of-town invitation, she’s sure she’ll be stuck at home watching it sleet and snow. But instead of leaving Natalie shivering, her parents send her on an all-expense paid trip to the Sand Castle Resort.

A casual friendship over drinks rapidly evolves into a hot seduction, which is great until feelings get involved. When vacation is over, Brock and Natalie are forced to make the difficult decision to walk away or see where life might lead them.

But falling in love in two weeks isn’t possible. Right?

Danica Avet
Born to Sin

A tomboy in love makes a desperate attempt to seduce her best friend and succeeds beyond her wildest dreams. But this Alpha male isn’t easily tamed and has secrets that could very well tear them apart.


Just another one of the guys. That’s how Taylor Guillory has always been treated in her hometown of Grand Terre, Louisiana. And for the most part she never minded until Sinclair “Sin” Rivas opened up shop in town. With his dangerous eyes and legendary sex god status, Sin is so far out of her league, but that doesn’t stop Taylor from falling in love with the impossible man, or doing something so daring and unlike her for the chance to be with him.

Knowing he’s no good for her, Sin has stayed far away from Taylor since the day she walked into his shop, but when the little spitfire propositions him in the middle of the bar, there’s no way he’ll be able to walk away from the temptation. But his one-night only rule when it comes to women is challenged by the pleasure they experience, making him think that he might be a one-woman man after all.

But Sin has secrets that could very well destroy anything they forge together. Can a man born of sin find redemption in the arms of a woman just as tough as any man?

Felice Fox
The Sound of Your Name

Their silent erotic encounters change his luck and awaken his soul, but secrets and cowboy superstitions can only keep them apart.


Ellie Donovan couldn’t care less about pro bull riders, until she’s sent out on the circuit to do a story about them for Modern Luxury magazine. She’d done many things to get a great story, but pimping herself out to a cowboy who thinks she’s the only thing keeping him on track for the gold buckle isn’t one of them. Being sexy Brody’s good luck charm isn’t exactly a hardship—until she discovers she doesn’t want it to end.

Brody Cameron can’t help bowing to cowboy superstition on the night he should have lost his spot on the pro circuit, when a secret tryst with a pretty stranger changes his luck, and his heart, forever. Caught between the love he wants and the money his family needs, Brody can’t share the truth with Ellie and risk losing his shot at the big money.

But when Cameron family secrets are exposed, and a jealous rival threatens to tear them apart, can Ellie and Brody break their silence without breaking each other’s hearts?

Jennifer Kacey
Beneath the Pages

One wicked night with her did nothing but whet his appetite. Now he’ll settle for nothing less than her complete submission.


Acacia owns and runs Fame, one of the hottest celebrity magazines in the country. She survives on convincing the rich and famous to reveal things they would normally do anything to keep hidden. She lives, eats and breathes the magazine. Day in and day out. She has no life, nothing to keep in the dark. Nothing but the night she gave herself over to the one man she never should have wanted.

Radigan, the most sought after actor in Hollywood, wants her again, and won’t take no for an answer. He had her for one night. Several hours of the best sex of his entire life, but she was gone the next morning before the sun had fully risen. His attempts to contact her have gone unanswered. Everything he’s tried so far has been a miserable failure. But he finally knows what to do to slip beneath the pages of her heart.

This time he’s playing for keeps and the exclusive rights to her body, heart and soul.

Lynne Silver
Cruising for Love

A vacation cruise comes with surprises—like the BDSM theme and her high school love, the one man she can’t resist.


When Andi Greene heads out on a cruise, she’s pumped for a fun week of sun bathing and chilling with her best friend. Little does she know her best friend has a number of surprises in store. The first is the cruise’s theme of bondage and domination. The other? Ship’s doctor Jonah Coleman, Andi’s first love, her high school boyfriend—the boy she thought she’d marry before he moved across the country and eventually dropped her cold. But there’s nothing cold about their reunion. Instead sparks fly, and Andi’s relaxing cruise seems set to turn into a week of hot loving.

Jonah can’t believe he’s getting a second chance with Andi—a grown-up Andi who might need more than he knows how to give. But he’s willing to put everything on the line to find out if the heat between them is just the remnants of teenage love or something more. And even though he has to let her go again, he’s determined this time she’ll never forget him.

Sabrina York

A scalding attraction. An irresistible passion. A pity she’s the one woman he can never have…


Dane Coulter is mourning the loss of his best friend, fellow Special Ops buddy, Cody. Oh, Cody didn’t die. It’s worse. He’s getting married. Cody is, in Dane’s opinion, whipped.

Dane swears he will never suffer the same fate. But when he meets a woman who can take all his dominant loving and beg for more, he realizes he may have met his match. It’s a damn shame she’s the one woman in the world his man-code deems untouchable…his best friend’s sister.

Sayde Grace
Chief Sin

A taste of Sin isn’t enough. Instead she wants all of him, including the heart she once broke.


Mavis Tanem has the world at her feet. She’s young, wealthy, and independent, yet none of that means anything. Years of seeking revenge against her father have left her cold and hard. There’s no place in her life for softness—for love. Yet when her brother goes missing she’s forced to go back to where it all started. And back to Bowie Sinet, the man she broke.

The devil was back in Tanem, Texas and Bowie is ready for the smart-mouthed and sexy as hell woman who’d torn his heart to pieces. As sheriff he’s used his handcuffs for a lot, but what he wants to do with them and Mavis might just be against the law, in more ways than one.

A single night is too much and yet not enough for either of them. They both know it’s too late to change the past, but maybe together they can exorcise the ghosts that haunt them, and find some peace.

Tina Donahue
Make Me Surrender

When it comes to two of the hottest guys in town, she has a proposition…to win their attention, passion, hearts.


For over a year, Mercy’s had her eye on Travis and Dutch, two of the hottest guys on the Oregon coast. Dark and dangerously virile, Travis owns a saloon that caters to bikers. Dutch looks like one, right down to his impressive tats, and operates a motorcycle repair shop on the premises.

When a position opens in the saloon’s kitchen, Mercy sees a way to be near these sinfully sexy men, wanting the job and lodging, her cabin snuggled between theirs.

Travis isn’t so sure about having Mercy nearby. She’s deliciously curvy, but too nice. He’s into temporary fun. To Dutch, forever is a dirty word.

Imagine their surprise when sweet little Mercy encourages wild nights of carnal pleasure with a dash of bondage and spanking…followed by friendship and tenderness.

Before she’s through, these tough guys won’t know what hit them.

Blog Tour: Lust. Mechanics. Mini Cooper

Romantic Comedy/Adventure/Time Travel
Date Published: June 15, 2014
Part Two: Sex. Coffee. Time Travel.  Coming Soon

 Adventure-romance author, Lesley Meryn, has lived her own share of adventures. But the one thing she has never experienced is the "coupe de foudre", the Lightning-Bolt of Love. Connected by years of friendship to the sexy action-movie star, Jason Hambrey, Jax, the two really are "just friends" but the paparazzi are merciless, making their lives and their friendship almost impossible to sustain.

When Lesley's Aunt dies, leaving her a piece of property in North Yorkshire, Lesley is mystified. Her aunt kept it a secret. Lesley travels to London and learns her that her aunt leased the property twenty-five years before to an 'Historical Research Society'. The lease on the property is up for renewal. Before she makes her decision; Lesley travels to the farm to investigate

Nothing could prepare her for what she finds at the farm. Miles Sherwood is dark, devious, and desperate. He's the very last person one would consider the head of a stuffy British 'Historical Society'

Lesley finds him insufferable, yet irresistibly attractive. The two unknowingly share a deep connection. Whether they like it or's Lightning-Time!




     Miles stared at the computer again without seeing it. Now his brain was whirling with even more concrete, even more disturbing images. For a man who had always taken a measure of pride in his discipline and self-control he felt as though he were on the verge of losing it completely. He poured another mug of coffee from the thermos on his desk, hoping that it might help to clear his head.
     The phone chirped at his elbow. He stared at it until it stopped, then rubbed his hands over the stubble on his face. He took another long drink of coffee.
     When Miles looked up, she was standing there in the open doorway, watching him. He flinched slightly, wondering how she could have snuck up on him so easily. He hadn't even heard her.
     “I'm leaving,” Lesley announced firmly and quietly and without preamble. “Now.”
     “We haven't discussed the lease.” He found himself staring at her lips.
     ”There's nothing for us to discuss,” she stated flatly, trying to keep from looking at him directly.
     “And your car—” Miles caught her eyes with his.
     “I'll walk if I need to...” Lesley stared back at him without flinching.
     “Its a long walk,” Miles replied still locking eyes with her.
     “I don't care.” Lesley swallowed, desperate to keep her resolve.
     “It might rain,” he observed.
     “It might,” she replied faintly.
     Miles took a step towards her. “Not until we finish our business.”
     “Our business can be settled by the solicitors.” Lesley took a small step away from him, her heart thudding madly.
     “Why not between us?”
     “I'd rather not.” She pulled her gaze away from him, fixing her eyes firmly on the painting behind him. She noted that the rapier was back in its scabbard on the wall next to the painting.
     “I think we can settle this like two civilized people.”
     Lesley gave a short laugh. “Do you really believe that?”
     “We could at least try....” he raised a brow.
     “Ahh...Don't you think we've gotten a bit past that?”
     Miles scratched his cheek thoughtfully. “I must have missed that part.”
     “Missed it? You engineered it!” Lesley faced him, offering her bruised wrists for his inspection.
     “I believe that you made a considerable contribution in that regard.” he replied dryly, tilting his head to the rapier on the wall.
     Lesley stared at him a moment, then dropped herself obstinately into the beleaguered upholstered chair.
     “I thought you were leaving,” he said.
     “Oh, I am.”
     “Then kindly do it, so I can get back to work.” As if.
     Miles folded his arms against his chest and leaned back against the desk. He raised his chin to the door. He was torn between the dread that she would do just that and the hope that he could think of something to get her to stay.
     “If you're going to go, then go.” He thought that perhaps reverse psychology would work with someone as seemingly perverse as she was. He smiled inwardly. She was almost as bad as he was. “I can have Conan take you to the train station.”
     Lesley stared at him then moved her attention to behind him resting it on the painting, then on the rapier hung on the wall beside it. After admiring it for a few seconds, she came to a decision.
     “That's yours. then?” She turned her head to the sword.
     “Yes, it is.”
     “Do you know how to use it?”
     His eyes slitted dangerously at her. “What are you getting at?
     “Is that just for decoration, or do you know how to use it?”
     “Maybe.” His mouth set into a firm line.
     “Mmm...” she paused. “Have you got another one?”
     “If you're thinking what I'm thinking, then stop thinking about it.”
     “What is it you think I'm thinking about?”
     “I don't even want to think about it.”
     “You were the one who suggested that we settle this like two civilized people.”
     “You are out of your mind...” he hissed between his teeth. “How can you even suggest—”
     “I consider it a rather civilized way of resolving our differences. Well, it used to be, in any case.”
     “I consider it out of the question.”
     “Why?” she asked.
     He turned away from her, raking back his disheveled hair, not certain just how he should respond to her.
     “I'd like to propose a little wager.” Lesley stuck her chin out at him, the defiant eight year old still very much a part of her.
“A what?” His head swiveled to face her.
     “You heard me, a wager. If you win, you get the lease renewed, same terms, no questions asked, for whatever length of time you require. “
     “And if I lose?” he asked softly.
     “If you lose... you tell me what it is you're really doing here. I mean really. The absolute truth.”
     “I thought I'd already done that,” Miles replied calmly, “told you the truth...”
     Lesley offered him a wry twisted smile. “Nah....I don't think so. There's more.”
     “What makes you think that?” Miles asked, humoring her.
     “Mmm...” Lesley raised a brow as she took stock of him again. “If there isn't, then what have you got to worry about?”
     Miles looked down, shaking his head.
     “You're afraid.”
     “Of you? No.” Miles raised his head slowly. “For you...yes.”
     “I'm not. What do you say?”
     “You're very sure of yourself, aren't you?” His brows rose.
     “No more than you appear to be,” came the response. 
     “I think you have the wrong idea about me, D'Artagnan.”
     “I don't think that at all.”
     Miles took her in carefully, the set of her jaw, her flashing eyes, the determined set of her lips. Oh God, those luscious delicious lips. He could no more set upon her with a sword than he could willingly smash the treasure of a priceless Fabergé Egg. No matter how much she provoked him.
     “I suppose you've changed your mind about me, then...” he replied dryly, taking yet another tack.
     “What do you mean?”
     “Yesterday you declared me a man without principles. What could possibly have happened between then and now that would lead you to believe I would keep to the terms of any wager you cared to propose? In a duel of honor?”
     Lesley had no response to this.
     “Listen to me, you selfish brat. You want to go, then go. For whatever reason you've chosen to concoct, it's not enough that we fence words, now you want to use the real thing. You have no idea what you're proposing, or who you're dealing with. And I'm weary of playing games with you. And I adamantly refuse to be a character in one of your self-indulgent literary exploits.” He gave her an exasperated wave. “Ach!”
     She stared at him, speechless, for several moments. The heat of adrenaline flashed through her. He was so devilishly handsome, those black eyes flashing at her, and so... so...
     “You're insufferable!” she finally breathed.
     “Thank you,” he nodded. “From someone who has elevated the concept into an art form, that is high praise indeed.”
     Shaking, and outraged beyond words, Lesley gathered herself up and started for the door.
     “What? No scathing retort?” Miles commented quietly, not able to stop himself.             “No parting sarcastic remark?”
     Lesley paused, her fingers trembling on the door handle. There was everything in her that wanted to reply, yet she held back, unwilling to allow him to succeed in his attempt to goad her. With a deep breath of resolve, she wrenched the door open and walked down the long tiled passageway.
     Miles stared at the open door, the sound of her boots receded down the long corridor. With each step the haze in his head grew stronger and the roar louder, and he found that he was having difficulty breathing. He knew he had to do something or else he would never be able to function or think clearly again. He had so much unresolved sexual tension, building up from the first electric moment he'd seen her, he had to do something. And he realized then, that he would do just about anything to keep her from leaving. He swallowed, took two deep breaths and cursed himself for his weakness and for what he was about to do.
     “Wait!” he called from behind the door, and down the passageway her boots slowed. “Wait! I'll do it!” He listened for a reply. There were no footsteps.  He held his breath.
     Carefully, he tilted his head around the door and came face to face with her. She stood silent, watching him, waiting. He found himself caught up, transfixed by those hazy smoky emerald eyes, and he knew he was lost.
     “I'll do it. Damn you,” he whispered. “I'll do it...”

     She smiled. And it sent a fiery cold shiver down his spine, which was surprisingly, frighteningly, familiar.

Elle grew up in Los Angeles, California, but has lived in San Francisco and then Jamaica when she was a Peace Corps Volunteer.  At the age of  twelve she became obsessed with keeping falcons in the back yard. Fortunately, for the hundreds of hapless French poodles living in the San Fernando Valley at the time, she was not allowed to do this. In the course of the following years, she took on the challenges of earlier times, learning how to fence, how to ride horses, archery skills, and she even took a "Grand Tour of Europe". Travel continues to be a passion of hers. Her father always claimed that she had been born into the wrong century.  He may have been right.  Elle currently lives in the central highlands of Costa Rica with her dog Pixie, and her hedgehog, Quiller.

About the Author

Bella Ross wrote her first book (a novel) at eighteen a la Jackie Collins. But back then, unbeknownst to her, life was about to take her on a detour. As she set off on her new course, her dream of writing took a backseat and her entrepreneurial spirit flourished instead. But after many years of worldly pursuits, the urge to write returned.

With her love of travel, it is no surprise that her ‘Wanderlust Series’ & ‘Club Pluto Series’ take place in glamorous capitals or exotic locales around the world. Its the perfect backdrop/setting for her characters to explore and indulge their lusts and passions, loves and desires.

When she’s not writing, she’s reading, or gallivanting all over seeking new inspiration, or people watching while enjoying a latte at Starbucks and jotting down ideas.

She loves to hear from readers and looks forward to interacting through her social media channels. You can also sign up for her mailing list to be notified about new releases, giveaways and more.
