Coming soon from Karin Tabke - five exciting new releases!

Karin Tabke has plenty to be excited about in 2008. Five new releases - two in June, one in July, one in November and December. I can only imagine how exciting that must be for an author. As a reader who loves Karin's books, I'm pretty damn excited myself! Check out the covers, blurbs and excerpts below and then tell me you're not anxious to get your hands on these books too!

COMING IN JUNE, 2008 (Karin's first historical):

The year is 1066. William, bastard Duke of Normandy, has claimed the English throne by right of conquest. To quell the Saxon unrest, William sends out his most trusted knights to secure the land. One of those knights is his cousin, Sir Rohan de Luc, known far and wide for his bloody deeds as The Black Sword. . .
Bold and courageous, Saxon maiden Isabel of Alethorpe is the only one left to protect the people of the manor and its lands. When Rohan de Luc seizes Alethorpe, he offers to spare the life of Isabel's young squire in exchange for her willing gift of the charms of her body. Betrothed to another, she vows to that while he may take her maidenhead, her heart will remain her own. But even as her lips say no, Isabel's traitorous body is awakened to desire by the seductive attentions of this potent invader. Can she remain true to her own people, or will Sir Rohan's skilled touch capture her un
willing heart as surely as his prowess with his sword captured her father's lands?

It takes more than a red-hot body and stunning sex appeal to manage a club like Callahan's successfully. Jade Devereaux hides whip-sharp smarts and cold calculation behind her sleek fa├žade, and she's come a long way from the frightened teenage girl who was once prey to a brutal man. Now, in the cat-and-mouse game of sexual escapades, Jade makes sure that the men are her prey.
When a wealthy businessman is viciously murdered mere yards from Callahan's, cynical cop Jase Vaughn turns to the exclusive private club for answers. Luscious Jade Devereaux sends his masculine desires into overdrive the moment he sees her, but he has plenty of experience with both women and crime suspects, and he can tell Jade has secrets to hide—secrets that are somehow connected to this twisted killing.
Jase is determined to strip away the pretense and expose the real Jade Devereaux, even if that means getting closer to her than the love-them-and-leave-them playboy has ever been to a woman. If she's guilty, Jase has sworn to see her behind bars. If she's innocent, then she could be the killer's next victim. But whether Jade is guilty or innocent, Jase realizes to his dismay that they are both falling victim to something neither has ever known—the power of love.

The swagger. The sensuality. Ya gotta love ‘em. The hottest heroes are Italian-American, and every woman knows it…

Good stuff, huh? I'll have details on the other two books as soon as it's available. I hope that if you haven't read any of Karin's previous books, you'll pick at up at least one - THE HARD STUFF (anthology), GOOD GIRL GONE BAD, SKIN, and WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE (anthology). Plenty to choose from; all wonderful! Be sure to check out Karin's blog - she keeps things hopping!

I hope everyone has a terrific weekend!

It's great to see you ladies here!

Stacy - I adore Karin's work and know that everyone who gives her a try will too! Can't wait to see you in June!

Fedora - Now you don't really want me to stop giving you suggestions, do you? All you need to do is start another stack!

Virginia, Robin and Jane - I've loved all of Karin's books, but my two favorites are Good Girl Gone Bad and Skin. They're all especially good and the ones due out this year promise to be just as good!

Laurie, thank you so much for the shout out about my upcoming books. I couldn't be more excited about Jase's story in JADED, or my debut historical Master of Surrender. '08 is proving to be a busy one! Take care, and thank you again.
