December Vaughn

1. Blondes Have More Felons (2006)

When a lawyer who's smarter than she looks and more stubborn than anybody expects opens a solo practice in small town Florida, she takes on the big drug company that killed the wife of her first major client. In her fight for justice, she encounters a kleptomaniac pro bono client, an Armani-clad bullfighter best friend, a poker-champ neighbor who bakes cookies, and a P.I. so hot he makes her rethink her No Bad Boys Rule . . . but she never suspects she may wind up literally laughing herself to death.

2. Blonde Justice (2007)

Attorney December Vaughn's taking the heat for a heavy load of possible insurance scams. Try proving that to sexy insurance investigator Bobby Denaris-especially when murder becomes part of the con.


American Idle (2004)

When her celebrity chef boss knocked her unconscious with a frying pan, it jump-started Jules's life. She'd been stalled too long: job-hopping, man-hopping, floating in the pool with no cares -- had it all been a Peter Pan act? Now, with a chance as a production coordinator on a cheesy new reality TV show, she would get herself in gear. But with an executive producer with a split personality, a judge with bubonic plague, a murderous coworker whose weapon was bad mayonnaise, insane fans, vote-rigging, dressing room Botox, and a hot guy who thought Jules was an alcoholic -- "Pop Star Live!" should have been called unreality TV. Plus, the publicity stunt that made Jules the "Face Behind Reality TV" and meant national attention 24/7 was even stranger. But instead of hitting the brakes, Jules only drove herself harder. Her idle life was gone forever; in its place she'd found her own American idyll.

Nice Girls Finish First (2005)

From the author of the zany debut, American Idle, comes a hilarious novel about learning how to be yourself-even if it kills you. Kirby Green didn't get to be a Vice President of Marketing by being nice. But when she fires her entire staff within a few weeks (they all deserved it, really), her new boss is hardly impressed. Wanting to prove his point, he issues a bet: If Kirby can get someone-anyone-to call her nice, she can take that long-awaited dream vacation to Italy with her best friend, Jules. If she can't, she can kiss the Coliseum goodbye. Oh, and her job too. Now Kirby has exactly thirty days to bully someone into saying she's nice-and to show her boss who's boss. If she doesn't fall hard for him first...

Seven Ways to Lose Your Lover (2006)

A delightful new novel about being true to your heart--even when your heart feels like a traitor. Like so many women, Shane Madison hates confrontation. But also like a lot of women, sometimes Shane just wants a guy to hit the road, and fast. The solution: get them to break up with her. She started honing her techniques after the first guy she dumped-way back in eleventh grade- threw a baseball bat at her car, and since then she's become a master at getting men to make the first move (in the other direction). She's even shared her secrets with her girlfriends. But some men, it turns out, just aren't made for dumping. And Shane's kick-him-to-the-curb advice might just come back to kick her in the you-know-what, when she starts dating a gorgeous new guy-who, unbeknownst to her, is out for a little revenge after his last girlfriend took Shane's advice.

He's just what the town needs...


E-mail to the Front: One Wife's Correspondence with Her Husband Overseas (2003)

"6/9: Evidently I wasn't supposed to put so much oil in the mower. The smoke went away fairly quickly, though. Connor even got to go for a ride in the fire truck."Alesia Holliday has survived scenes like this and more while her husband, a naval flight officer, has been away on military duty. They have forged a different kind of marriage-one that the 1.5 million current active-duty service members and their families will identify with. E-mail to the Front has a large built-in audience that boasts a camaraderie strengthened by shared difficulties and discoveries. E-mail to the Front consists of short commentaries by Alesia and an e-mail dialogue between her and her husband while he was on deployment. In text filled with empathy, gut-level honesty, humor, and unflinching support, chapters cover everything from "Departure: Only 183 Days to Go" to "Rebellion of the Appliances" to "It's Like Being a Single Mother, but I Can't Date." E-mail to the Front will appeal to everyone who appreciates the courage of those who choose to serve their country, the families who are meeting the challenge of military duty, and those who love and support them. Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry has written a cover quote for the book, and best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann said "This book should be required reading for all Americans."

Warriors of Poseidon

Единадесет хиляди години по-рано, преди моретата да погълнат атлантите, Посейдон възлага на няколко избрани воини да служат като защитници на хората в новия свят. Има само едно правило – беше им забранено да ги желаят. Но правилата са измислени, за да бъдат нарушавани…

1. Atlantis Rising (2007) Възраждането на Атлантида

Райли Доусън е много повече от предана социална работничка във Вирджиния Бийч. Тя е дарена с мисловна връзка, до която единствено атлантите са имали достъп в продължение на хиляди години. Фактът, че е „емпат”, вероятно обяснява нейната изпъленана с копнеж близост с мътните вълни на океана, убежището, което сякаш й осигуряват и сексуалните импулси, които изглежда се излъчват от дълбините му… Конлан, върховният принц на Атлантида, излиза на повърхността с мисия да върне откраднатия тризъбец на Посейдон. Но нещо друго го завладява - интимните емоции и желания на един човек. Неустоимо привлечен от тайнствената красавица, Конлан скоро споделя с нея повече от своите мисли. Но в разгара на битката за възвръщането на силата на Посейдон, колко дълго може забранената любов да продължи между две различни души от два различни свята.

2. Atlantis Awakening (2007)

Ven's mind is filled with duty. He must serve as Atlantean liaison to the humans in a war waged against the vampires. A sword is his weapon--not diplomacy. But on a mission to recover the Nereid's Heart--a ruby of immense power--it will take every ounce of strength he possesses to resist the sexual allure of the beautiful witch chosen to work with him. And the witch... Erin's heart is filled with vengeance. She lives only for the chance to punish those who murdered her family. Now she must partner with a legendary Atlantean warrior whose dark desire threatens to crash through the barriers she built around her emotions--and her heart. Caught in a trap of shifting alliances, how long can Ven and Erin resist their awakening passion? Dark forces beware: Atlantis is awakening.

Grace is part of the rebellion against the vampires and shape-shifters trying to take over her world. She is deadly with her bow, because when she takes aim, she never misses her target. But suddenly she’s focused on a damaged Atlantean warrior who sees her as a weapon, not as a woman. When thousands of lives are on the line, will passion overrule, or will her aim still be true? When two worlds collide…Atlantis is unmasked.

4. Shifter's Lady (2008)
