For one week, she agrees to let him do anything, anything, he wants. But Jane's got conditions. First, no actual sex. Second, she has to enjoy it.

From the Heavens comes a hero who will take your breath away…

 

“Full of intriguing characters, fast paced storyline and simmering sexual tension, this is an author who leaves you on the cusp of something wonderful with each page until the climatic ending is revealed. With each page, the reader is propelled into a world of gods & goddesses, demons, and the warriors charged with keeping humanity safe. Ms. McBride is a delight to this reviewer and her captivating characters really give you an idea of what is in their hearts and souls…I was enthralled from the beginning and was rooting for Reese to take Dagan down a peg or two with his high handedness…”~Dawn, Love Romances & More


Reese Whittaker dreams of falling for a man who shares her love of archeology and ancient civilizations. But being attacked by a horde of demons and rescued by a Sumerian God—a well-armed, gorgeous Sumerian God—opens up a world she never knew existed, attracting all kinds of supernatural attention.


Dagan, son of the Air God and a Time Walker, is sworn to protect the human race in general, and one young woman in particular—Reese. He’s not the only one mysteriously attracted to her powerful life force. Underworld leader Kur craves it for the untold power it will give him to strike a blow at the deities of Dilmun.


Dagan is forbidden by law to interact with Reese, but from the moment he sees her, the fury—an intense sexual need for bonding—blinds him to all the rules. Should the pantheon discover he has fallen for a human, the punishment could mean death for him and Reese.

Miranda Zane is thrilled to be at the commune, but she’s not thrilled about having to pick one of the lumberjacks for her year-long sex buddy. All she can think of is the two doctors in charge of the study and the way her body felt when she first locked eyes with them.

~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~

“Are you all right?”

Miranda suddenly realized that she’d been staring at the man, open- mouthed.

The doctor stood in front of her, and from what she could gather, he’d just asked her a question. But, she couldn’t recall any words sinking in to her head.

Heat rose in her face. All she’d ever wanted to do was make a good impression and now he was probably thinking she had a deficit of brain cells.

Miranda shook herself internally and summoned her top student skills. She took a deep breath, straightened her back and smiled brightly.

“Yes, doctor, how may I help you?” she said in an even, calm voice as if he’d just walked up to her and hadn’t already said something – whatever it was. It was a knee-jerk reaction, her nurse’s training kicking in. Respect the doctor. Feed their enormous egos. Always, always stand by to assist.

His eyes twinkled, and a smile tugged at his lips.

“So I take it, you are okay? Miranda Zane of 5215 Brookhurst Lane?”

It wasn’t a question. He knew. She wasn’t sure if that should please her or piss her off. So clinical of him to remember her address as well as her name. It meant nothing. Nothing at all. He probably just had a photographic memory, as many doctors did. It didn’t mean anything else.

“Why don’t you come back with me in the Jeep?”

“All right,” she said, or tried to say—but her tongue seemed too thick in her mouth, and the words came out more like, “Al vi ht.”

Miranda suddenly didn’t feel so good. The world seemed to swim around her. She felt dizzy and knew in an instant that she was suffering from dehydration, and possibly malnutrition from lack of food, or maybe it was the altitude.

The passenger van sped away, and she reached out for something to hold onto.

“Miranda, are you all right?” the doctor asked, taking her arm.

“What’s the altitude here?” she slurred.

The next thing she remembered was how dark brown the rich loamy soil looked as she fell towards it at a sickening pace. Something caught her before she could hit it, and then she passed out.

Her next memory was of waking up to the feel of bouncing over a bumpy road. Was she back on the bus? No, this was much worse than the bus. This vehicle had no shock absorbers, and her hair was flying into her face. She tried to reach for some hair that was sticking to her lips, but there was something holding her arms in place.

She opened her eyes a crack and knew at once that she was in the Jeep. Something around her waist moved, and she let out a yelp of surprise. She was sitting on someone’s lap, and that person had his arms wrapped around her.

Her eyes bulged as she made out the driver of the jeep. It wasn’t the sexy doctor driving the jeep, this time, it was her bus driver Mitchell, which meant she was sitting on the handsome doctor’s lap.

“Let me go,” she said.

“Just relax, we’re almost there.”

Kidnapping and bondage are no way to win a girl. Well, actually. . .

Gone With the Monster from Award winning, paranormal romance author Lila Dubois is Book 3 in her bestselling series, Monsters in Hollywood.

Things in Hollywood are heating up as the lines between fantasy and reality blur, and screenwriters, producers, monsters, and supporting cast move forward with the making of a movie, or not!

Runako has good reason to distrust humans. His sister's murder taught him it's safer to keep his Monster form under wraps. Now comes word that a woman is making a movie that will supposedly "help" his people. He's not sure about that, but one thing is sure. . .Margo is too beautiful to be ignored.

Presented with the opportunity to use his people's Captive Caves—a secluded mountain fortress designed to hold hapless, tasty humans prisoner—Runako knows exactly whom he wants to star in his ultimate fantasy.

Margo knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. At least where her career is concerned. Runako is just the kind of bad boy with whom she'd like to heat up her nights. In a land of skinny blondes, though, a hottie like him would never notice her lush, Latin curves.

No one is more surprised when she finds out his version of "wooing" includes kidnapping. Forced to stand before him in chains, her paper-thin confidence is burning up fast in the heat of his desire. And when it turns out she can identify his sister's murderers, they both must decide where their loyalties lie. . .

This erotic paranormal romance contains gargoyle shapeshifters, monsters, and adult themes. Gone With the Monster is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
