Happy St. Patrick's Day

Go muirní cnoic na hÉireann thú.

May the Irish hills caress you.

From the Mulligans (and me) to you!

Some Like It Hotter on Kindle

The Kindle release of SOME LIKE IT HOTTER is now up at Amazon.  It will be going up at all the other digital sites as soon as I have the ISBN, which is forthcoming.  Amazon is still linking this edition with the original 1997 release.

"Natchez detective, Mike Faricy, is living a nightmare. First, his partner and best friend is killed in a shootout. Then a strange man appears at the precise moment Mike offers to sell his soul in exchange for his partner's life. Before Mike can blink, the man promises him the chance to change June 19th, the day before the killing. Who can blame him for at least trying? But he should have read the fine print. Now Mike is facing Abigail Kingsley--a knockout woman in Civil War-era garb who insists it is June 19th, all right...1865! A man out of time. A woman out of options. Time-travel Romance at its very best!"

Dirty Harry meets Scarlett O'Hara and there's hell to pay....

           They stood facing each other beneath the stars, and Abigail wondered if these feelings were the sort of thing poets knew when they penned beautiful, heartrending words.  She felt so strange, as if she and Mike were no longer of this world.  They were with the stars, suspended apart from pain and reality.
           His breathing grew louder and mingled with her own as the seconds ticked by.  Though he still hadn't touched her, she felt him, felt a power emanating from him and into her.  An invisible bond spanned the distance between them, drawing her to him unlike anything she'd ever known or even dreamed of.
           She could almost see it--this magical force that drew her to him.  Her insides ached and throbbed, empty and weeping for him.  "Mike."  His name was barely more than a strangled whisper, torn from her lips by desperation and a need so raw and fierce she felt she might die from it.
           Then he touched her.

Passing of an Era

The passing of Walter Zacharius will leave a gaping void in the publishing industry, and in society.  He was a true icon and a pioneer.  This fitting tribute says far more about this great man than I can. Kensington gave me my start in publishing, and I will always remember Walter with fondness and gratitude.

Thank you, Mr. Zacharius.  Rest in peace....

~Deb Stover
