Truth or Dare Compilation Announcement
Greetings friends and readers! *sips coffee* *shivers* Cold and gloomy here in the Illinois countryside today, but never fear. I've got something here that should warm everyone up pretty nicely! Since I received the rights back to all of my Truth or Dare books, I've been diligently working on getting them back out in the e-book world, with new covers, new edits, new… compilations.
This is something I always wanted to do, but after putting out a paperback compilation, my publisher wasn't able to get an e-book bundle done. So I'm celebrating this winter by offering you the first three Truth or Dare books in a first-time-ever- e-book bundle for only 4.99. That's a $4 savings off buying each book individually!
Mischa, Terry, and Brandon ought to keep you warm and cozy while the weather outside gets frightful. As for me, work waits for no one, so I'll be right here, typing away on the next Parkerburg novella I'm writing with Havan Fellows.
Meanwhile, I've got some Petty queued up on the stereo- yes, I am a dinosaur, thank you very much. I am completely defeated by the idea of transferring all of my cd's to digital files- or whatever they're called- on the computer. And as for the whole mp3 thing? This is yet another reason why I need a houseboy. A pretty one... who doesn't mind doing things like that.
The Blake brothers have it all - money, prestige and dysfunction go right along with the family production studio. When Dan Blake gets the genius idea of combining a game of poker with a game of Truth or Dare, his brothers are right to be wary.
Mischa knows his brothers are up to something. He doesn’t realize it will lead him to Donovan Holloway and change his carefree lifestyle forever.
Having grown up in a free-love hippie commune taking care of the parents who should have been taking care of him, Donovan Holloway, advertising executive, newly made vice president of the company where he’s worked for twenty years, has come a long way. He’s worked hard to put himself through school and achieve the American dream. All he’s ever wanted is a normal family life—house in the suburbs, two cars, two kids, a shaggy dog. A family to come home to, to care for, to care for him has been his dream since he was a small boy.
Green-eyed, liberally pierced, black-haired, Mohawk-wearing spoiled youngest son of a Hollywood producer and his actress wife, Mischa Blake has made a terrible mistake. In a fit of childish pique, he’s accepted a dare from his older brothers. The dare? Live on his own, supporting himself completely, for a year without accessing his trust fund. No problem. Except Mischa has never worked a day in his life, hasn’t finished college, and has absolutely no skills to bring to the table.
When he sees Donovan’s ad for a housekeeper/gardener, he has nothing to lose by applying, because really…how hard can it be?
Telling the Truth
Paying his debt for a losing hand of cards sets Terry Blake free to pursue a fantasy he never dreamed could be reality.
Terry lives his life according to guidelines…study accounting, get an MBA, and work for the family business. And while handling the family and business finances is rewarding, something has been missing.
When a losing hand on poker night forces Terry to answer his brother’s question with Truth, he’s unable to hide behind his pristine reputation and fancy business suit. Terry is honor-bound to divulge secrets he’s been ashamed to admit even to himself in the privacy of his own bedroom.
Dex and Trick have finally found acceptance for their relationship in the homes of their friends. They would never do anything to jeopardize that newfound sense of belonging. Fooling around with Mischa’s prissy, domineering, and oh-so-sexy older brother is too risky.
Terry isn’t going to take their dismissal without a fight. He’s convinced Dex and Trick are meant to be his, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make them realize all the safety and protection they might need can be found in his arms.
Brandon Blake has a problem. His family is fed up with his controlling ways. They don’t need him managing their affairs anymore. Brandon refuses to lose his connection with his brothers, but he doesn’t know any other way to live. He’s been in charge for a long time. Now his brothers are leaving home and making families of their own, and Brandon’s interference has caused some serious rifts. Brandon’s stressful job as CEO of the family production studio and his concerns for his brothers have contributed to his recently diagnosed ulcer. His doctor prescribes therapy as a way to learn to let go and give up the need to control everything. Brandon finds the counselor he’s been sent to intriguing, if a bit intimidating, though she has absolutely nothing in common with the women he’s dated in the past.
Dr. Arden Grey knows about control. A survivor of marriage to a dominant, abusive partner, she’s spent the last twenty-five years turning her life around. She’s learned to take control and made a career of teaching others to do the same. When his doctor sends Brandon Blake to her, Arden isn’t sure how she can help the man. But after a few sessions, she sees something intriguing hidden inside the surprising Mr. Blake, something that tells her he just might be the man she’s looking for. If only she can convince him that giving up control to the right woman will solve all his problems.
