Captured!

Mari never expects to find herself caged in a cargo hold on a spaceship. She quickly learns from her captors she’s headed to the meat market. When they try to return her to hypersleep, she resists. After allowing her to stay awake, Mari realizes her survival depends on connecting with the male in charge, Ekkatt. She must make him see her as a sentient being or she will end up as dinner.

Ekkatt has never spoken to any human. They are valued for one thing, the money they bring at auction. The Attun race is vegetarian, but other species prize human flesh and bring in good money. Then the female with red hair speaks to him and forces him to admit she has a name. Mari throws Ekkatt’s entire life into question, the biggest question…can he watch her sold to the highest bidder?

Anytime Darlin’

Paramedic Jake McKenna drops to his knees beside the young woman. Beaten, starved, she’s barely breathing, burning with fever. He stabilizes her, but when she opens her green eyes and stares, panic-stricken, into his, he realizes this is only the beginning of their relationship.

Devlin Barre has been through hell. If her uncle finds her, she’s dead. When she looks into the warm brown eyes of the paramedic, she knows deep in her bones she can trust this man with her life.

Devlin and Jake grow close, but, fearful of commitment, Devlin runs off to rebuild her life, leaving Jake heartbroken.

Five years later, Jake and Devlin meet again. Neither has forgotten a single detail of their time together. Both harbor the secret hope that they can begin again–this time, for keeps. But Devlin isn’t the only person who ran off. Her uncle still waits for the right opportunity to get the one person who got away.

Maggie is done with men. Flying to Minneapolis to celebrate her sister’s engagment, she’s seated beside the type of man she always falls for. A sexy, arrogant alpha jerk.

When their seatmate suffers a cardiac arrest, Maggie and Mace team up to save his life, but it’s too late.

In Minneapolis, Maggie heads to a restaurant with her sister, only to find Mace waiting. Worse, she learns he’s the brother of her sister’s fiance. Stuck in her sister’s apartment with Mace, Maggie offers him one night of sex, anything goes. No obligations, no recriminations. Mace agrees…he wants more than Maggie’s body, he wants her heart.

Thrown into a disastrous canoe trip, they must work together to survive. Maggie must face her demons and trust Mace with her life. Mace is determined to save her, regardless of what the future brings.

It don’t come any more smokin’ hot than this one. (Giggle!)

One Four All, a sizzling Science Fiction love fest.

(That’s my arm and tattoo by the way.) As author Penny Watson says to me– “You can’t even dumb down porn! One Four All is written with the intelligent woman in mind.” 

Lira Pakan, heir to the Throne of Zhinshu, has vanished. Her zealots gather along the border with the neighboring state of Khubuk, awaiting the outcome of her father’s pleas to the World Court.

Captain Tanner Kepp serves in the elite Special Forces of Khubuk. When the captain is ordered to choose two men to accompany him to Land’s End, an isolated compound on the maritime border between Khubuk and Zinshu, the last thing he expects to find is the missing princess.

Captain Kepp, Arms Master Cer Watso and Sergeant Redda Till realize they must rescue her to avert all out war. The princess, however, has other plans. These men can be more than her rescuers. According to the law of Zhinshu, she must choose three men as consorts. Her people say: “one to guard the right hand, one to guard the left hand, and one to guard the back, always.

Happy Holidays!

 

Anytime Darlin’ – my husband’s favorite.

The blurb and a little background:

Paramedic Jake McKenna drops to his knees beside the young woman. Beaten, starved, she’s barely breathing, burning with fever. He stabilizes her, but when she opens her green eyes and stares, panic-stricken, into his, he realizes this is only the beginning of their relationship.

Devlin Barre has been through hell. If her uncle finds her, she’s dead. When she looks into the warm brown eyes of the paramedic, she knows deep in her bones she can trust this man with her life. Devlin and Jake grow close, but, fearful of commitment, Devlin runs off to rebuild her life, leaving Jake heartbroken.

Five years later, Jake and Devlin meet again. Neither has forgotten a single detail of their time together. Both harbor the secret hope that they can begin again–this time, for keeps. But Devlin isn’t the only person who ran off. Her uncle still waits for the right opportunity to get the one person who got away.

Anytime Darlin’ is the first romance I actually wrote.  By the time I hit the keyboard, the story had been rattling around in my head for quite a while.  A young woman nearly dies.  Her life is turned upside down and she finds herself all alone in the world, on her own at the tender age of seventeen.  In a way I modeled the character, Devlin, on myself.  Although my life wasn’t as riddled with tragedy as Devlin’s, I found myself living on my own at seventeen.  My experiences helped to flesh out my heroine.

Jake, my hero, is an amalgam, made from people I cherish.  He’s one part my husband, one part a former (deceased) boyfriend, one part super hero – in general a 100% plays-his-cards-close-to-the-vest, tough as nails, hard-bodied, fearless Montana rancher.  I have such a big crush on Jake I named my dog for him.

The story takes place in the Midwest and Mountain West – my favorite places!  Devlin travels from Iowa to Illinois to Colorado and back to Iowa, while Jake moves between his family’s ranch in Montana and his job in Colorado.  Finally, his career takes him to Idaho.

The blurb isn’t exactly accurate.  Jake and Devlin separate for close to five years, because Jake, at twenty-four, realizes eighteen year old Devlin needs  space to live her life and make her own decisions, and he knows she’s developing powerful feelings for him.  When their two best friends get married, Devlin and Jake are reunited, with incendiary results.  Repressing all those emotions, you know…

You can find Anytime Darlin’ here, here and here.  I’m always up for a discussion – let me know!

Congrats to Penny Watson on today’s release!  Sweet Magik!

“Julia Rachel Barrett shows what a gifted writer she is by bringing the sequence of events to light and at the same time never losing the emotional pull that is required to maintain the reader’s attention.

Be prepared to be horrified and offended by many of the deeds of the people around Cara but also be prepared to care for her so deeply that you wait for her revenge.”
