Author Override: Coreene Callahan

Posted 28 March, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Author Override / 0 Comments


Baby, it’s cold outside, and you’ve got a venomous dragon to keep happy. Farfetched? Out of bounds? Maybe for you and I, but inside Black Diamond—the Nightfury dragon-warriors’ lair—it’s an absolute reality. Particularly for Evelyn Foxe, the heroine of Fury of Obsession, the fifth installment of the Dragonfury Series, and the woman of Venom’s dreams. Also the one who’s in charge of keeping him happy on long chilly days. So…


How does she do it?


Kind of a loaded question and…uh-huh Right. I know where your mind just went—right in the gutter—but it isn’t what you think. The solution is much simpler. It’s all about cinnamon and a little known fact: venomous dragons love cinnamon, sprinkled on everything. And nothing makes them happier than the ooey-gooey goodness of cinnamon rolls. So in the hopes of keeping Venom content while Mother Nature roars and snow flies, Evelyn came up with some interesting variations to keep her warrior happy, the kind that just might help you get through the winter weather too.

1.  Nutella Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Cuz nothing says “I love you” like the chocolaty goodness of Nutella!


2.  Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

  • Because bacon goes with everything.


3.  Pizza Dough Cinnamon Rolls

  • Because, PIZZA!…enough said.


4.  Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

  • Rule of Thumb inside the Nightfury lair: Eat two and go back for more. Daimler’s orders.


5.  Cinnamon Roll Sandwich

  • It’s so good, why not have it for lunch too?


6.  Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

  • Because breakfast is the most important meal of the day.



7.  Classic Cinnamon Roll

  • Because some things need absolutely no improvement.



What kind of comfort foods do you enjoy on a cold wintery day?



Fury of Obsession

Dragon-warrior Venom lives in self-imposed isolation. Cursed by his toxic touch, he is deadly to anyone who has contact with him for too long. Set apart from others and hounded by intense loneliness, he craves the lasting connection he believes he cannot possess. Until a chance encounter with a sultry mortal offers a ray of hope…

Evelyn Foxe is the woman of Venom’s every desire, but she’s too busy running from the Russian mob to think about love. As she accepts Venom’s offer to help her escape her precarious situation, she’s skeptical, afraid that he’s in league with those sent to harm her. But when a biological weapon is unleashed in her hometown, Evelyn is forced to trust Venom—or risk the dangers of going it alone.

Will they survive the firestorm that rages around them? And can they pull from the ashes a love that will defy all the odds and last through the ages?

The First Edition

Welcome to the first ever edition of Random Thoughts of a Romance Blogger! It gives me a chance to unload all the strange things that pop into my mind, thoughts which I am damn sure are the result of reading one too many romance novels – okay, not possible, we all know there is no such thing as too much. But, I am pretty certain that non-romance reader wouldn’t look at an Escalade and wonder if Butch O’Neal and Vishous from the Black Dagger Brotherhood are inside…then drifting off into a fantasy when the two sexy Brothers are inside and are stalking me to show their undying devotion to yours truly. It could happen right?Blood Kiss

But the Black Dagger Brotherhood has been on my mind recently though, mainly because of the exciting news that we are getting a new series, which will give us some old school WARDen; heavier on the romance and relationships, lighter on the politics. I confess when I saw the news, happy dancing was involved along with a good deal of squealing and a few fist pumps for good measure. Luckily, I wasn’t in public at the time so no arrests were made. Please tell me, was I the only one with such a dramatic reaction?

Of course, I have lots of dramatic reactions, whenever I see news of a release I am looking forward to; there is normally a plethora of strange sounds that emerge in my excitement as well as some unusual movements, which I hesitate to call actual dancing. The strange species I like to call “non-readers” don’t know what they are missing out on. These “non-readers” will never know the delights of the a stare-down with their kindle at midnight as they wait for their book to download, nor will they ever get the thrill of tackling the poor postman as he comes to their door with their long awaited Amazon package. Honestly, what do they do with themselves?

I feel better now I have released some of the crazy stored up in my head. Now leave me alone so I can continue my Butch and V daydream…I may add a little Xcor now to spice things up a little.

Over and out.

Author Override: Marina Adair

Posted 26 March, 2015 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Author Override / 11 Comments


There is nothing sexier than a big, built, badass who carries a badge. Maybe it’s that ready-for-anything vibe they wear like cologne, or maybe it’s that they come equipped with their own set of cuffs. Alpha cuties that put their life on the line every day get my heart going, which is why I choose to use three first responders as the heroes in my new series, HEROES OF ST. HELENA.


The Baudouin brothers serve and protect with the best of them, risking their lives as some of the most elite law enforcement, firefighters, and soldiers—who each discover that love might be the biggest risk of all. In the first book, NEED YOU FOR KEEPS, we meet Deputy Jonah Baudouin, the oldest brother and self-appointed superhero of St. Helena. His run for sheriff becomes complicated when official business ends in a steamy kiss—and he finds himself falling for the sexy free-spirit next door. So, today, I thought share my personal top badge-carrying beefcakes.


Marina’s Top 5 List of Who Wears the Badge the Best:


circle5David Boreanaz as Special Agent Booth on Bones. He first stole my heart as Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the humor that he brings to his role in Bones does me in. He is sexy, sweet and makes me laugh. Humor is equally as important as abs…and this guy special agent is packing both.


And now we know what he wears under his cover:




circle4Linden Ashby as Sheriff Stilinski off MTV’s Teen Wolf. I have a soft spot for single dads and widows, and this sheriff is the best of both. Like Deputy Jonah Baudouin, Stilinski rides the straight and narrow, always looking out for the citizens of his small town, while trying to balance career and family. The relationship he has with his son is heart melting, but the devotion he carries for his deceased wife is heartbreaking, making this single dad my kind of hero.




circle3Shemar Moore as Officer, Derek Morgan in Criminal Minds. All I can say is that if this man came to my door flashing his gun, I would put my hands wherever he wanted them…




circle2#2 is a to-fer. Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan as detectives Williams and McGarrett in Hawaii Five-0. I caught this show on a plane and took one looks at this sexy duo and was hooked.




circle1Channing Tatum as Undercover Officer, Jenko in 21 Jump Street. Truth time, I don’t even remember the movie, I was staring at Tatum the entire time, drooling. I mean, look at this picture. The man is so good looking, there is no way he couldn’t top the list. Throw on a holster and that tattoo and I was a goner.




Honorable Mention: Adam Samburg as Detective, Jake Peralta in Brooklyn Nine Nine. I know that he’s not your typical badge-carrying beefcake. But, a man who makes me laugh is a man who makes me melt.







Need You For Keeps

When it comes to caring for the furry residents of St. Helena, California, groomer and pet rescuer Shay Michaels can handle anything. Humans are another story, though—especially Deputy Jonah Baudouin. He’s the town’s resident superhero: upright, uptight, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous, even when he’s investigating complaints about Shay’s beloved foster animals. And that spells danger for Shay, a free spirit who can’t risk trusting the wrong person again.

Jonah and Shay have been circling each other ever since she came to town, and he’s running out of reasons to not kiss her senseless. But this deputy is a straight shooter with his eye on the sheriff’s badge. He can’t afford to get involved with Shay, a chaos magnet with luscious curves who’s liable to turn his career—and his life—upside down. He enforces laws. She breaks them—repeatedly. Keeping her out of trouble is becoming a full-time job…and it’s one he hopes is never going to end.
