A murder scene is not exactly the place to find romance. But when Inspector Michael Devane is called upon to solve the murder of Robert Bradshaw, he finds a woman who arouses intense passion in his heart. Unfortunately, she’s at the top of his suspect list! Denyse M. Bridger brings the Victorian Era alive in Out of Hell, Book 1 of her romance series The Devane Files.

In 1892 Whitechapel, only a few years after the infamous Ripper murders, Inspector Michael Devane is given the job of investigating the murder of a theatre producer. Devane is a haunted man, driven by the dark demons of his past, the elusive Ripper, and a growing addiction to opium. His brilliance is unquestionable, but his methods are highly unorthodox.

When Devane comes into the home of the victim, an unpleasant man named Robert Bradshaw, he meets Bethany Davenshire-Bradshaw. In Bradshaw’s widow, Michael finds a kindred spirit who defies both the conventions of society, and the trappings of false mourning. As they grow closer, Devane discovers that Beth is a woman of many secrets, but could one of them really be that she is the murderer he’s looking for?

About the author

Denysé is a native of Atlantic Canada, she began writing at an early age and can’t recall a time when she wasn’t creating in some artistic form. Cowboys have been a love-affair that began at the tender age of three, and eventually expanded to encompass an equally timeless passion for pirates, Greek Gods, and Ancient Egypt. The other side of the Old West intrigue is an affinity for Victorian England, particularly the 1885-1895 part of the century.

Lady Rachel Shaw had believed her unhappiness to be at an end once her husband died, but now she finds herself caught in the clutches of a cruel and relentless blackmailer. Totally at a loss as to who she can turn to for help, her friend the Countess of Winterbourne, advises Rachel to go to Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon, a gentleman who was recently of assistance to Fliss and her husband.

Rachel doesn’t know Lucien Brooke personally, but she has seen him many times at one Society event or another, and knows him to be an aristocratic and handsome gentleman who has avoided every attempt by the beauties of the ton to be lured into matrimony. Gossip and reputation say the viscount as being a cold and arrogant gentleman who does not suffer fools gladly. And Rachel has been very foolish indeed.

Left with no other choice, Rachel finally decides to risk the viscount’s scorn and ask for his help.

Lucien Brooke, Viscount Brooketon cannot deny Lady Rachel Shaw’s beauty or desirability, but unfortunately she is also as flighty and flirtatious as his mother, a woman who has been embroiled in one scandal after another for most of his life. That being the case, Rachel Shaw is the type of woman whom Lucien has always avoided having any personal involvement.

Looks can be deceiving, however, and within minutes of Rachel calling at his home and explaining her current predicament, Lucien realizes he was wrong to have judged the lady without really knowing her, or her circumstances.

He now not only wants to help Rachel in her current predicament but he also wants her. In his arms. In his bed.

Persuading Rachel into accept any of those things from him is going to be a battle Lucien has every intention of winning.

An unhappy marriage, to an adulterous wife, has left widower Mr. Ranulf Montgomery immune to the wiles of women. He certainly has no time, or sympathy, when the young and beautiful Miss Darcy Ambridge, is found hiding in his carriage, as he makes the long journey from London back to his home in Scotland.

Darcy Ambridge acts out of desperation when she decides to throw herself on the mercy of Ranulf Montgomery. Convincing that hard and cynical gentleman of her dire circumstances seems impossible, however. Can Darcy break through the hard shell that now surrounds Ranulf’s emotions, and find the warm gentleman she once found so intriguing? Or will Ranulf simply abandon her to the attentions of the lecherous gentleman determined to bed her?

As desire rages out of control between the two of them, Ranulf dearly wishes to rid himself of Darcy’s company. Something he knows he cannot do, in all conscience, until he finds the culprit of the series of ‘accidents’ now threatening to injure or kill both of them.

Who could possibly want to see one or both of them dead? The unscrupulous gentleman Darcy is running away from? Or perhaps someone from Ranulf’s past, set on revenge?

 CRAVING (Regency Lovers 3) is the 3rd book in Amazon #1 & USA Today Bestselling Author, Carole Mortimer’s, Regency Lovers Series.
Author’s note: The books in the Regency Lovers series are steaming hot. You have been warned!

At the age of seven and twenty, Miss Sophia Marchment, unlike many of her contemporaries, has lived a life of satisfying independence without the restraint of either a husband or male relative. As headmistress of her own school for young ladies in Portsmouth, Sophia is not afraid to share her independent views with ‘her girls’.

During a stay in London in which she meets with Magnus Spencer, the Duke Weston and the widowed father of a potential student, Sophia receives several unsigned and threatening letters. Ones in which she is advised to return to her home in Portsmouth or face the consequences.

Quite what those consequences might be Sophia has no idea, but nor will she be told what to do by someone who is not even brave enough to sign their own letters.

Aged eight and thirty, and single for many years, Magnus Spencer, the Duke of Weston, knows he has grown both cynical and arrogant. Nevertheless he finds himself surprisingly drawn to the beauty and independence of Miss Sophia Marchment. An attraction he has every reason to believe she reciprocates, and yet refuses to act upon. The more Magnus sees Sophia the more his attraction to her deepens, until she is all he can think about. A CRAVING beyond his control.

But not everyone feels that same admiration for Sophia and her fiercely independent ways, and when her very life is put in danger it falls to Magnus to protect her. From herself if necessary.
 "You can't be serious?"
"Amerasha needs stability," King Alenzo Coranthaos reminded his only son. "Our future lies with you!"

Michel Alexandros Coranthaos, heir to the island nation of Coranthis, turned from the castle window to look intently at his father. He tried to keep his voice even and free of the irritation that was coursing through his veins like a living thing. "Father, you are in the prime of your years, hardly on the verge of dying of old age. I fail to see why you think it so necessary for me to marry and produce offspring!"

His father's shoulders stiffened at the words and Michel sighed inwardly. He schooled his expression to careful neutrality and waited for the rebuke he sensed was coming to him.

"Why do you think it so necessary to remain unmarried, Michel?"

Startled by the calm question, he took a few moments to seriously consider the question. He could be flippant about it, or he could for a change be honest. The expectancy in his father's eyes decided him and he crossed the distance between them.

"I don't think it's unnecessary, father. I simply choose to wait for a woman I can love and respect, someone I can share my life with, as you did with mother."

Alenzo looked at his son, and nodded, expression grave.

"I wish to see you happy, Michel." He held up a hand to ward off the reply Michel was about to make and smiled, albeit with sadness. "You have played the carefree prince for many years, but there is an emptiness in your life that needs to be filled. Tell me this is not truth? If you can?"

Michel stared, genuinely surprised by the turn of the conversation. He'd answered his father's summons with the expectation of another of their increasingly frequent arguments. Instead, he was being accorded a direct honesty that had once been the core of their relationship, but had often been lacking in years. He sat down and for a few moments he remained silent, then he leaned back in the comfortable chair and nodded.

"There is no sense denying what you say, father. I am not a happy man," he admitted, then laughed with real bitterness. "I don't lack for attention, but it feels very hollow."

Alenzo nodded. "It's time to bring a bride to you, my son."

Michel frowned, and waited for the trap to spring. He should have recognized the change in tactics, his father was a supreme manipulator.
Denyse Bridger takes you into the dark and dangerous world of ancient vampire Alexander and the mortal woman of his obsession, Amberlaine Calvert. They will stop at nothing to feed the flames of their obsession in Descent Into Darkness, a passionate tale of love, lust, and revenge

Spanning almost two centuries Descent Into Darkness is the erotic love story of an ancient vampire and the mortal woman who is his obsession.

Alexander DeLenoir is an ancient creature of the night, born in a betrayal that has left him without conscience or morality. He’s witnessed history that is now myth. Throughout his long life, Alexander has seldom sought companionship, and never has he looked for love. He has kept two of his immortal children with him, through whatever means necessary, and is not intending to expand his family.

Arriving at a small Massachusetts town after killing the sailors on their ship, the vampire trio meets the mysterious and lonely wife of the innkeeper, and Alexander is entranced by her beauty and her indomitable spirit. In Amberlaine Calvert, he senses a nature as dark and depraved as his own seeking freedom. Despite the protests of his companions, Alexander takes her and in adoration of him finds an obsessive kind of happiness.

When the town slowly awakens to the evil among them, a bloody slaughter ensues, and Amberlaine is forced to see the madness that will define her life with Alexander. Yet, in spite of her fear, she is obsessively devoted to the powerful vampire, and the darker things she feels lurking within her are about to be unleashed by a hunger even greater than her passion—the thirst for revenge against those who dare to threaten their existence...
