Cash’s life isn’t anything like he’d planned … until Indie shows up at the ranch where he works.  There’s something about her that tugs at his protective instincts, and he simply can’t resist her.

Unfortunately, finding each other doesn’t mean life is going to go the way they expect it to.

Playing with Fire has a new look!


Series: Playing With Fire
Titles: Truth or Dare ~ Hide and Seek ~ Spin the Bottle ~ Hot Lava
Author: Anne Conley
Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense
Publisher: Beyond DEF Publishing Services, LLC








It's just a truth or a dare ... right? 

Some things never go as planned. Nannette’s artistic retreat began with disaster. She’s distracted by a blazing-hot firefighter who thinks she needs a knight in shining armor. And her precious masterpieces have turned into combustible images of her hero.

What is she supposed to do? 

Jude is rethinking everything he’s ever thought about love and desire, and Nannette is the ignition point. The colored swatches of their need are too brilliant to be contained on canvas, and neither of them know how to deal with the embers of desire when they burst into flames.




You can always run, but you can't hide. 


Joey is trapped in a backdraft. His relationship with Simone is going great—until she dumps him. His mother is marrying a younger man, and his station has him in a Santa suit for a fundraiser. Not exactly what he’d call the best lot in life, especially with an arsonist on the loose in Pamona Gulch. 

Things are heating up to dangerous levels. And then he sees her. 

Vivian is licking old wounds and trying to protect the precious heart of her four-year-old daughter. Her ex left her world in cinders, and starting something knew and full of promise leaves her wondering what will remain when the smoke clears.




It all started with a kiss. 


Zane can admit it was a disastrous one. But the odd case of Lettie is one he’s determined to explore. If the stubborn woman would just give him a second chance, she’d see they are explosive together. 

One kiss tells Lettie exactly how things are going to go in a relationship. The lip-lock with Zane is a non-starter, but he won’t take no for an answer. He even opens his home to the shelter animals as she struggles to clean up the smoke damage from the most recent arson fire. 

“Have dog, will love” has to count for something, right? But as Lettie fights to extinguish the sizzling attraction, Zane continues to show her just how well he can create an inferno.






Twice burned is sometimes the key. 


Logan doesn’t do repeats. Ever. It’s a cardinal rule he must live by. Katie was a mistake—one he never would have made if he knew she lived in Pamona Gulch. It would have saved him the slow and steady burn of his lust for the last two years. The need to take Katie back under hand … and command … is stronger than ever now.

With Logan, Katie learned things about herself she’d never known. How desire could be a precision-cut diamond forged in the hottest temperatures. How guided mastery could lead her to unattainable heights. And now she’s left in the cold, running to find that same high.

Into the arms of a dangerous blaze. 

Desire flares when Logan saves her. What’s between them is undeniable, but with the arsonist caught and anger sparking, will it snuff out what’s growing, or will it only add fuel to the fire?

Audiobooks, new covers, and stories, OH MY!



So... This is happening... The rest of Pierce Securities is going into audio.  In addition to that, they're getting a facelift!  A spin-off series!

Basically, Pierce is getting a new voice, new look, and new stories.

A few months ago, I reached out to a lovely man by the name of Warren Zemon, who agreed to narrate the rest of the Pierce Securities series, in addition to going back after he's finished and re-narrating Craze so we can hopefully do a boxed set in audio.  Wouldn't that be cool?

I love his voice.  He sounds so kind, smexy, and really really smooth.  I listened all last weekend to him reading my words, and holy cow was that an experience.  With the entire series going into the Romance Escapes, I think you guys will have a great experience with this series.

Also, I've decided to update the covers, to go along with a new spin-off series that I'm doing to bring y'all some more stories for this series.  So be looking for something new from your boys, soon.

And that brings me to the spin-off portion of my little spiel...

Yup.  Some of them are moving.  There is a set of brothers whose parents live in Montana, and they've got to go see them, right?  Getting caught up in the romance of the area (and a little family responsibility), they decide to stay and open their own company, Rocco Securities.  They end up hiring a few cowboys to seed their personnel, because I've always wanted to write cowboy books, but never had the nerve, so I'm jumping in, lasso flailing.

I did have to get a day job to continue writing, but so far, so good! I have the rough draft of the next Pierce book, the first Rocco book is undergoing revisions, and Wire is being reviewed by Audible's ACX dept for publication.  Warren is starting Click in October!  (I have a plan for more Breast Cancer donations during the release of that one, so stay tuned for that.)  I'm in deep discussions with my cover designer at Book Wiz regarding the new look for the Pierce and Rocco boys.

So many things are happening!  2020 will be the year of Pierce and Rocco!  Hold on tight!

Hunt for Love is LIVE!!!  The Book B!tches, book #3 is HERE!



A haunted town. A murder mystery. The find of the century. 

Kristie Hunt has it all: her dream job, a fiancĂ© she loves, and her b!tches to keep her sane. The ongoing mysteries of Mystic have forced her to push her job to the back burner. When her life flips upside down, Kristie snaps. Thankfully, there’s somebody to help hold her together.

Jessie Burgess has come to Mystic to translate a diary Kristie found. It’s the discovery of a lifetime and will help lend him legitimacy in a family that has become a clichĂ©. Of course, the sexy blond goddess in charge of the exhibit isn’t hard to look at, and he doesn’t mind being the shoulder Kristie leans on while she sorts out the mess with her ex.

They’re just messing around—Kristie’s come off something serious, and Jessie’s not looking for another woman to try to change him—but when Kristie’s life is targeted, he realizes how much he truly cares for her.

Welcome to Mystic, Texas, where the past stays alive in more ways than one.


Here's an excerpt, for you reading pleasure!
“Comanche regard valor and bravery above all else. When we see something we want, we take it, and we fight like hell to keep it.”
The intensity in his eyes as he spoke those words sent a shiver of anticipation down her spine, leaving a pool of heat in her panties. She crossed her legs and ignored the tingles erupting across her skin as his eyes continued flashing at her.
Kristie could read into his words but decided not to. She chose to believe he was speaking about the woman who’d written the journal and the man who’d taken her. She didn’t want to believe that Jesse had seen her, wanted her, and was going to fight like hell to keep her. That would complicate things. A lot.
Kristie swallowed against the rising lust in her throat. Feeling awkward, she shifted in her seat, touching his thigh. A self-satisfied smile flickered across his features and he lowered his head.
“Well, did you get anything translated last night?” Eager to change the subject, she watched him shuffle some sheets of paper.
Ignoring the brush of his hand against hers, she took the proffered papers as he pulled a pair of glasses from his satchel. He read aloud from the document and paused to transpose it onto his laptop.
Okay, Jesse in glasses? She was doomed. Truly doomed. She desperately tried to come up with a reason not to launch herself at this man and finally managed to remember Shane coming out of the room where he’d fucked his secretary at a funeral.
But the glasses. And the biceps. And the long, dark hair. And the air of power.
Jesse was talking to himself. And it was wholly distracting.
The words were a husky murmur in a language of harsh consonants and excessive grunting. Coming from Jesse, it was pure eroticism washing over her skin and leaving her flushed.
Holy shit. She honestly didn’t see how she was supposed to actually work like this.
Swallowing and hoping her words weren’t about to sound rude, she cleared her throat. “Do you have to read it aloud?”
His eyes twinkled. Did he know his voice reading in Comanche was disintegrating her panties?
“You said it yourself. This woman isn’t Comanche. Our alphabet only has eighteen letters in it, and some of those aren’t in the English alphabet at all. So yes, I do have to read it out loud to hear it and know what I’m saying. Is it a problem? I can work in another room if it would be easier for you to read.”
His eyebrows rose. He was offering to take his laptop and the book and go elsewhere so she could read in his room in peace?
“No. That’s all right.”

Dropping her eyes to the pages, Kristie forced herself to focus on the printed paper in front of her and not his delicious voice. In time, the Comanche murmur was a pleasant backdrop and added a flair of authenticity to the diary.

Welcome to Mystic, Texas, where the past stays alive in more ways than one.

Vanessa Power, a budding Indie Romance author, believes the town is calling her name, being the new life and fresh start she’s craving. She’s met an amazing group of women who have a regular book club, reading only Indie Authors. Unfortunately, her new house is in worse shape than she thought and holds more mysteries than she’s prepared for. And then there’s the handyman.

Linc Ward holds more mysteries than her house and the town combined, with a past he won’t reveal in a package which is built for nothing short of sin. 

Linc is captivated by his new boss, the only person in town who will give him a job, but only because she doesn’t know he’s an ex-con. Can he keep his past locked away, while at the same time indulging in his fantasies with the pleasantly curvy and deliciously sexy Vanessa? Probably not.

They are both looking for a new start in life. Will they be able to find it together? Or will something sinister keep them apart?




A captivating contemporary gothic romance...
Mystic, Texas has a serial killer on the loose, and Tiffany appears to be on his list.

After the loss of her husband, Tiffany Masters finds herself in Mystic, a town with a past more haunted than hers. The local book club, The Book B!tches, gives her the courage to be herself without worrying about adult things, like bills, parenting, and supper. However, her new boss may be more than she can handle.

Nick takes pride in his business. Being the only bar owner in town has its challenges, the biggest being his new employee. Tiffany's a fireball--sexy as hell, with a temper to match--and off-limits. She's got kids; he's been there, done that, didn't care to get the t-shirt. But she brings out buried urges in him he doesn't know how to deal with.

When their heated attraction sparks a spat, the sheriff gives them an ultimatum: settle their shit or go to jail. He's got a crime to solve--a woman's dead, Wren's still missing, and there's another possible victim.

**Welcome to Mystic, Texas, where the past stays alive in more ways than one.**

#NewRelease Break of Dawn #HurricaneHarvey

New Release!  This one was inspired by Hurricane Harvey, and is dedicated to all the  first responders who dropped everything--jobs, family-life, missed vacations--and drove to Houston with a flat-botttom boat, and cases of water to get the people out of rising flood waters.  




One woman in hiding. A man desperate to escape his future. A union that can’t ever happen.

A bad girl meets a good guy who is just trying to do the right thing.

Dawn takes jobs—the jobs people need done, but don’t want to get their hands dirty with—because she’s good. But this job may be her last. She not sure if she’ll survive it.

Jackson is reluctant to fit into his father’s mold. The Mayor’s son, he’s ready to live his life on his own terms, but it seems his life is already laid out for him.

When he rescues her from a “job” in the middle of a hurricane wracking their fair city, the two paths collide.

And the consequences could be dire.

Excerpt:
Her first thought was of his proposition. She couldn’t imagine what he would want, except sex. She wasn’t immune to his charms in that regard, but Dawn repeated her earlier thoughts to herself. He wouldn’t want just sex. He looked like the sort to dissect things, talk about feelings, put labels on what they were and shit. She wasn’t the sort who did that type of thing. Not anymore.
Her second thought was all about the creature comforts. She hadn’t brushed her teeth, needed a shower, and if she ever wore this fucking body suit again, it would be too soon. Dawn needed clean underwear in the worst way, and her bed screamed at her from where it sat across town.
And she wanted to look at the laptop that had Twitch so fired up.
She sighed, and Jackson’s gaze snapped to hers. “You said you lived by Freed Park?”
She nodded, just now starting her pancakes. The buttery, syrupy batter melted on her tongue, and she let out a small moan. Jackson stared at her with a stark heat in his eyes that had her swallowing hard.
“It’s all underwater over there. Like, a ton of water.”
She ate another bite, shoveling it down because it tasted amazing. She honestly wasn’t hungry but didn’t know when she would get another chance to eat a meal cooked this well. Breakfast might be all the people got. She could be relegated to granola bars, or worse, the rest of the day.
She was smart enough to know not to turn down perfectly good food.
So Dawn ignored him and cleaned her plate, letting out a soft belch when she was finished before pushing the plate away. Jackson picked it up and threw it in the trash in the corner before coming back to sit in the seat next to her. The air thickened between them, and he tugged her chair closer to him, placing her between his knees. He leaned down so they shared the same air. It was totally unnecessary in the largish space of the room that only held the two of them, but she allowed it.
Reveled in it, actually.
She could see his greenish-gray eyes in the light of the morning. At night, they had glittered in the darkness, but she hadn’t been able to tell what color they were.
Dawn was hopelessly lost in them. His sandy-blond hair was cut short on the sides, still standing up on the top of his head, but it had been tamed a bit since last night. And his breath smelled slightly minty.
Son of a bitch had found a toothbrush.
“I think I can use you,” he said, breaking the pregnant silence with words that held a double entendre she couldn’t not laugh at. He blushed, and it was cuter than she cared to admit. He cleared his throat and tried again. “Okay. I do need you, but not the way that came out.”

She sighed, angry at her curiosity for rearing its head. She just knew she was going to get in too deep with this guy. Dawn could feel it in her gut.
