Start with bad mojo, add a pinprick of revenge, and watch things boil over…

There’s something strange afoot in the small touristy town of Mojo, Louisiana. Yet even as the annual voodoo festival gets underway, Penny Francisco refuses to believe in black magic. Her thoughts are on the Victorian house across the street from her health food business—her lying, cheating ex-husband Deke is having the house that she restored painted pink! Isn’t it enough that he moved in his busty mistress and Penny has a front row seat to all their shenanigans? At her divorce party Penny receives a “Deke” voodoo doll as a gag gift, and vents her frustration by stabbing it with a pin as a joke. But later when Deke is found stabbed to death, Penny doesn’t have to be told she’s managed to land herself IN DEEP VOODOO.

PARTY CRASHERS—No invitation, no alibi...
TWO GUYS DETECTIVE AGENCY—Two sisters who are complete opposites take on a failing P.I. agency.

Jina Modell works in Communications for a paramilitary organization, and she really likes it. She likes the money, she likes the coolness factor—and it was very cool, even for Washington, DC. She liked being able to kick terrorist butts without ever leaving the climate-controlled comfort of the control room.


But when Jina displays a really high aptitude for spatial awareness and action, she’s reassigned to work as an on-site drone operator in the field with one of the GO-teams, an elite paramilitary unit. The only problem is she isn’t particularly athletic, to put it mildly, and in order to be fit for the field, she has to learn how to run and swim for miles, jump out of a plane, shoot a gun...or else be out of a job.


Team leader Levi, call sign Ace, doesn’t have much confidence in Jina--who he dubbed Babe as soon as he heard her raspy, sexy voice--making it through the rigors of training. The last thing he needs is some tech geek holding them back from completing a dangerous, covert operation. In the following months, however, no one is more surprised than he when Babe, who hates to sweat, begins to thrive in her new environment, displaying a grit and courage that wins her the admiration of her hardened, battle-worn teammates. What’s even more surprising is that the usually very disciplined GO-team leader can’t stop thinking about kissing her smart, stubborn mouth…or the building chemistry and tension between them.


Meanwhile, a powerful Congresswoman is working behind the scenes to destroy the GO-teams, and a trap is set to ambush Levi’s squad in Syria. While the rest of the operatives set off on their mission, Jina remains at the base to control the surveillance drone, when the base is suddenly attacked with explosives. Thought dead by her comrades, Jina escapes to the desert where, brutally tested beyond measure, she has to figure out how to stay undetected by the enemy and make it to her crew in time before they’re exfiltrated out of the country.


But Levi never leaves a soldier behind, especially the brave woman he’s fallen for. He’s bringing back the woman they left behind, dead or alive.


 A frothy, funny page-turner! 

 When Belinda Hennessey moves to Atlanta after a humiliating personal setback, she’s eager to start over: new surroundings, new job, new friends. To help adjust to the big city traffic, she joins a carpool with three other women in her office, who give her a crash course on maneuvering the maze of roads named “Peachtree” and tips on navigating office politics, which includes tiptoeing around their tyrannical boss.

Belinda tries desperately to fit in, and even manages to meet a couple of eligible men. Yet fate keeps conspiring against her. Her relationships become more problematic, and when bizarre accidents begin to occur, she starts to think she might be cursed. But when Belinda learns the woman she replaced in the carpool died under mysterious circumstances, she begins to think she’s being targeted—and not for Employee of the Year.

 “Stephanie Bond is in her usual rare form, and that form is utterly delightful.  KILL THE COMPETITION is an excellent, fast-paced, sexy story.  —AOL Romance Fiction Forum

“With a fast pace that moves the story along and smart snappy dialog between the characters, Ms Bond has penned another fascinating read that will leave her readers wanting more from this talented and imaginative author.”  —A Romance Review


“Whatever book you want, you will probably find it in KILL THE COMPETITION. Laughter, suspense, passion, and female bonding all combine in this realistically complex and sometimes whacky book. Ms. Bond has created magic, and she pulls more than one rabbit out of the hat to surprise her readers.”  —Academic Planet

Starred review! “DO read this novel.” —Publishers Weekly
