This brutal, original crime thriller from the co-creator of Love and Rockets tells the story of femme fatale Maria M., whose life south of the border is a sordid tale of sex, drugs, violence, and power. When she comes to America for a better life, she marries a drug kingpin, whose son learns Maria’s darkest secret, leading to the most violent gangland bloodbath in organized crime history.

Maria M. collects 2013’s Maria M. Book One (now out of print), and the neverbefore-published Book Two, presenting the complete graphic novel for the first time. Longtime readers of Hernandez’s books will recognize a meta-twist worthy of Maria M.’s pulpy pages: Maria M. doubles as a “biopic” of the mother of Hernandez’s most beloved character: Luba from Love and Rockets!

Can true love ever bloom from a start like this? Shy heiress Alfrieda Hamlin is reduced to shocked silence when her hateful grandfather announces she’s to marry within a month – to a cowboy she’s never met. There’s no way she’ll give her body to a stranger, or have her expected freedom and inheritance stolen away!

Alfie might be shy but she’s no pushover. When she learns more about the succession deal hatched between her autocratic grandfather and the handsome Texan stud, she vows to beat her new enemy at his own game.

Exiled for half his life, hard-living Rory Morrissey has been offered a deal: quit the ranch in Texas, return to his New Zealand birthplace, and embark on the delicate mission of convincing Alfie to take him as her husband. This will earn him a fresh start, respectability, and the chance of owning a farm beyond his wildest dreams. 

Rory has nothing to lose by accepting the challenge. The girl could be bearable. Perhaps they can outwit the old man and split things amicably? Maybe hell will freeze over first, but this hunky cowboy is determined to ride down his heiress and bundle her into his bed.

COWBOY WANTS HER HEART is the third in Kris Pearson’s standalone Heartlands trilogy. Set in the spectacular rural scenery of New Zealand, these novels take you to faraway places where real men and women seek lasting love – sometimes against daunting odds. If you enjoy romance that leaps off the page – funny, furious and feel-good – then download this sizzling hot story now. Be sure to also read MELTING HIS HEART and CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY HEARTS.

Last year, I published a book of writing prompts to help jumpstart muses and get the creative juices flowing. Many of the prompts that didn’t make the cut in that book were salacious, to say the least. As an erotica writer, I sometimes like to think outside my own boundaries and try to tackle the art of writing sex in new and exciting ways. Let’s be honest -- there are only so many things you can say about sex before you start feeling as if the scene has become rote or mechanical. The romance of your first sex story soon dulls with time, almost like a marriage, and you’re left wondering what happened to the excitement you felt when you first fell in love with writing about ... well, love.

That’s why I decided to write a book of writing prompts geared specifically towards the erotica writer. Maybe you want a different position, or a new way of thinking about a familiar scene. Maybe you want to try your hand at something you’ve never dared write before. Maybe you just want to write about two people getting it on and don’t really know where to begin.

This collection of 366 writing prompts can be used daily throughout the year (leap years, too!) as a starting point to get you writing ... and keep you writing. Each day of the year has its own, unique prompt. Set a timer for fifteen or twenty minutes, and write wherever the prompt takes you. Or, if you’re between stories and looking for something different to work on, flip to the prompt for today (or any random page) and start fresh.

This book will kick-start your writing or take you in exciting new directions every day of the year!
