~Now Available~ Free Agent by Cheryl Douglas





Dylan Clark has had his eye on Sabrina ever since she walked in to their bar for the first time. He’s watched her place bets in front of the big screen, hustle guys at the pool tables, smoke cigars, drink whisky, and beat a team of rowdy men at darts. She’s sexy, sassy, and unforgettable. They’ve been friends and lovers, but he won’t be satisfied until he makes her his wife.


Sports agent, Sabrina Mitchell, is in love for the first time… with one of her best friends. But when Dylan accuses her of the ultimate betrayal she doesn’t even try to defend herself. She can’t. He thinks she’s committed an unforgiveable sin, but he’ll be the one begging forgiveness when the truth finally comes out. But will it be too late?

Author Bio:

When one door closes, another one opens. I closed the door to my business for the last time in 2011, which left me with a decision. What now? Find another location and move my nutrition business, go to work for someone else, or take a chance on my dream? I chose the latter and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always loved reading and writing, but it wasn’t until I jumped in with both feet and decided writing would be my career, instead of just a hobby, that my muse woke up from her deep slumber.

It was like someone flipped a switch inside my head and stories just came pouring out. At the end of the day, I would often look at the keyboard and wonder, ‘Who the heck wrote that? ‘Cause I’m pretty sure it wasn’t me!’

I don’t write books. I tell stories, or rather, I allow my characters to tell their stories through me. I’m not a plotter, never have been, never will be. Why? Because I have no idea how the story will evolve and it’s not my place to manipulate it. My job is to get to know these characters, figure out what makes them tick, then follow their journey wherever it takes me.

When I’m not writing, I’m daydreaming. Thankfully, I have an understanding husband and son who know I’ll re-join the land of the living just as soon as my muse decides it’s quitting time. I don’t work for myself. I work for her. She’s the boss. And I’m okay with that.

WILD CARD
(Texas Titans #5)

High Rollers vice-president, Brett Easton, has to select an interior designer to give their bars an upscale new look to coincide with their re-branding efforts. He knows just the woman for the job, his little sister’s best friend, Carly Lawson. She’s brilliant at what she does. He likes her, respects her, and trusts her, but when one of his partners start making a play for her, Brett realizes his feelings for her are anything but platonic.

Carly Lawson is overwhelmed at the prospect of taking on a job as big as the High Rollers project, but she doesn’t want to disappoint her best friend’s brother, Brett. She’s knows he’ll never see her as anything more than a friend, but that doesn’t stop her from indulging in a fantasy or two. When Brett’s partner asks her out, she decides to accept. Little does she know, Brett’s not too happy with her decision.

Release day for Nobody's Lost by Kallypso Masters




Kallypso Masters has a surprise new release!

The fifth book in the Rescue Me Saga released Dec. 9. While we all were expecting it to be time for Luke and Cassie, Kally’s recent battle with cancer derailed those plans. But not wanting to disappoint her fans, she wrote what was going to be a book about half this size but just kept growing so that she could give her fans a book this fall as promised.

NOBODY’S LOST is about two characters who have had minor roles to this point in the Rescue Me Saga, but who will play a large part in the future books in the series, including NOBODY’S DREAM (Luke’s book which will release by March 4, 2015 now that Kally’s cancer free and able to concentrate on it again.)

Haven’t read Kally’s books before? No problem! NOBODY’S LOST provides readers with a new entry point to the series. However, most readers enjoy and understand the depth of these stories much more so when they read in order, starting with the first book, MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL (almost 500 pages in print!), which is FREE everywhere. That's the ideal place to start! Here's the reading order for all available books (including preorders):

MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY'S ANGEL (FREE!)
NOBODY'S HERO
NOBODY'S PERFECT
SOMEBODY'S ANGEL
NOBODY'S LOST (releases Dec. 9--available for preorder one more day)
NOBODY'S DREAM (releases March 4 at latest--available for preorder)

Nobody’s Lost Description and Buy Links

A standalone novel about two characters with very minor mentions in the earlier books.
Ryder Wilson returned from serving multiple deployments but can't leave the hell of combat behind him. Frustrated and ashamed of his inability to function in the world as well as the veterans he served with, he retreated, choosing to engage only with those he trusted. When retired Master Sergeant Adam Montague sends him on a mission to protect his sister from some unknown danger, Ryder's days of hiding out may be over. Can he fulfill his mission without failing again?
Megan Gallagher has two big-brother Marines bent on protecting her from the evils of the world, but she's tougher than they think. When her older brother sends Ryder, one of his recon Marines, to her doorstep in the wee hours one night following a break-in, she realizes he needs rescuing more than she does. A friendship forms quickly, but unexpected passions run hot and complicate her resolve never to have a romantic relationship, much less marriage. So why are her body and her heart betraying her every time he comes near?
Can these two wounded people lower their defenses long enough to allow love to grow?

Kally tells us about herself and her writing and appearance plans for 2015

I write emotional, realistic Romance novels with an emphasis on healing using sometimes unconventional methods, including BDSM (bondage, sado-masochism, kink, interrogation scenes from hell, and more). My alpha males are dominant (whether active in the BDSM lifestyle or former active-duty military or not) and attracted to strong women who can bring them to their knees. I've brought many readers to their knees, too—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me Saga. I know that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so my couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the saga. That's why it's difficult to read the series out of order (except for NOBODY'S LOST).

I enjoy meeting readers and have traveled extensively to try to get to every state (someday!) to hold events as big as a KallypsoCon or as small as an intimate dinner for 3. However, because I want to give my readers more books to read, I'm scaling way back on appearances in 2015 so I can hunker down in the writing chair. (I write in a glider, exactly like the one I describe in Adam's bedroom at the Masters at Arms Club.) Coming in 2015 are NOBODY'S DREAM (Rescue Me Saga #6--the long-awaited Luke and Cassie story) and a novella (or short novel--you know I don't write short because NOBODY'S LOST started out to be a 35-40,000-word novella and it ended at 71,000 words. The couple in that novel will be Pamela (the NICE ex-girlfriend of Marc D'Alessio's who you met in SOMEBODY'S ANGEL) and Master Roar (Kristoffer Larson--a relative of Gunnar Larson's, who trained Damian and Grant as dominants). Then I'm not sure which direction I'll go. Grant and Patrick were HUGE in NOBODY'S LOST, and I planned a spin-off three-book romantic suspense (with BDSM) for them. I may have to decide if the time is right to begin Patrick's story. Let me know what you think after you read LOST!

But I'm also wanting to start the spin-off series about Angelina Giardano’s firefighter brothers with Tony (her brother) and Carmella (Marc's sister) as the potential first couple. Sparks sure were flying between them in that scene in SOMEBODY'S ANGEL. Definitely something I want to explore!

As far as 2015 appearances, I'll be attending RomCon in Denver, Colorado, in September. And the weekend before I will be conducting a Rescue Me Saga private sightseeing tour of the places I write about in Denver and areas near Breckinridge. That package will include lodging for three nights, bus transportation for the tour, and at least one special meal each day.

I'm also planning my second KallypsoCon to be held in the Boston, Mass., area in late October or early November. In March, I'll be announcing the authors who will join ne AND will open up registration for the VERY limited number of reader spots. (We want to keep this intimate and relaxing, which is what everyone at the first event loved most. We only had 85 attendees, including 7 authors, but will probably have 8 or 9 authors and up to 110 readers at this one (since so many of those who were at the first one want to be there).

What else is there to know about me? Well, I've been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit my “day job” the month before. I live in rural Kentucky and have been married for more than 30 years to the man who provided my Happily Ever After. We have two adult children, one adorable grandson (Erik, who my followers on FB hear about often!), and a rescued dog.

Here are some of the places where you can learn more about me and my books online:
My Facebook Profile (I'm close to max friends, so I only send friend requests to those who message me saying they want to engage by commenting or posting on my timeline, BUT anyone can follow me and see almost everything I put up there. It's 99.9% public.)
For fans of my Rescue Me Saga who don't mind spoilers and are caught up with the series as much as you can be, I have a secret Rescue Me Saga Discussion Group. To join, just send a friend request to Karla Paxton (a dummy account that is ONLY there to be a gateway to the group and is monitored by one of my team members). If you are already a member of the group, please don't send another request. Karla unfriends you after you are added so we can keep up with new requests.
