Take it Like a Vamp
Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?
“I never thought I’d write a vampire, but I have to tell you that except for the whole biting thing, I’m sort of in love with my hero Nick. First of all, he’s an international playboy, who happens to be a gazzilionaire, and he falls for a curvy girl. One with hips and boobs. What’s not to love about that? He looks like Adonis. He cares for her and wants her to be happy. And he would do anything for her. Don’t we all want that in a relationship? I love my husband, but if Nick showed up at my door and wanted to take me away, the hub would have wind burn I’d be running out so fast. (Smile)
Favorite Line: “It’s sad when your best friend makes your panties melt.” –Casey, the heroine
“Candace Havens has created a plausible scenario of how vampires might live today with great wealth, infighting and natural human needs warring with blood lust. A dash of magic and werewolf inheritance add to the mix of this sumptuous cocktail.”
- Fresh Fiction
“Sexy, full of adventure, and laugh-out-loud funny!”

Tall, Dark, and Divine
Eros, the Greek god of love, swore off the useless emotion after his ex ran off with some Viking godling. He’s lost all interest in his matchmaking business, Made in Heaven, until he spots the sweet baker who works across the street. Before she stirs his sullen heart, he’ll match her and get back to his ambrosia-laced wine in no time.
Lonely baker Annie Landon has given up on finding Mr. Right. What she needs is Mr. Right Here, Right Now, and this so-called “Greek God” she’s heard is on the rebound sounds exactly like the perfect kind of distraction. But picking up the bitter, workaholic is easier said than done…especially when he seems unreasonably determined to match her with someone else.
Can a woman looking for love—and the matchmaking god who wants her to find it with someone else—have a shot at a happy ending? May the best god—or mortal—win.
“I enjoyed revisiting Astoria, where I spent a few of my formative years – those in my early twenties – and it was a lot of fun creating a New York City neighborhood where Greek gods live and work and rub elbows with the general population… even if the population in general doesn’t know they’re there. And it’s my first attempt at romantic comedy, which was fun too. I didn’t really consciously set out to write romantic comedy, it just happened; but it was a fun ride, and I think the result turned out pretty well. But of course we’ll have to see what the readers say!” ~ Jenna Bennett
Favorite line: “You gotta spread the gift around, know what I mean? Every woman deserves a night in the sack with a god.” (Attributed to Dionysus, Greek god of wine and debauchery; NYC bar owner and the hero’s best friend)
“The Greek god of love meets his match in this witty, sexy romance. It’s a fun romantic romp with great dialogue, and Ros and Annie are perfect together!”
- Nancy Haddock, bestselling author of the Cescna Marinelli vampire series
“A fun, sexy romp through the Olympic pantheon that will make you yearn for your very own god of love!”
- bestselling author Laura Kaye

Deceiving the Witch Next Door
Storie Bell has a little secret—she’s a witch. But magic hasn’t exactly kept her life from being a complete mess—her love life is non-existent and the town thinks she’s a total nutter. Plus there’s her neighbor Reid Malone who runs hot one minute and cold the next.
Reid Malone can’t wait to escape Bloomington, Texas. Unfortunately, he’s stuck where he is unless he helps his father hide a very illegal secret. The only key to Reid’s freedom lies with the eccentric Storie…and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the information he needs from her.
But Reid’s holding something back. Something big. And if he’s not careful, he’ll find out exactly what when you try to deceive a witch…
“I never knew writing a light paranormal romance could be so fun! I love Bloomington, the Storiebook Cafe, and Reid and Storie’s romance. They start out with an incredible attraction to each other, but it quickly goes south and they turn into enemies of a sort. But the magic–quite literally–happens when Storie moves back to Bloomington, Reid needs something, and he’s willing to deceive her to get it.”
Favorite line: “Not at all. I think your lists are helpful. I can think of all kinds of things we could make lists about. Why you should let me up here to work. Why we should finish this bottle of wine. Why you should let me into your bed.” Reid Malone to Storie Bell
“Magical fun. Deceiving the Witch Next Door weaves a sexy romance you won’t be able to put down.” – bestselling author Candace Havens
