A Warm Welcome to Karen Cote
Karen Cote lives in a California Castle with Prince Charming and a Magnificent Black Stallion. Okay, it’s a bungalow, a corporate husband and a small black pug who totes a sense of humor and lotsa attitude. But it is her dream. A real life dream to inspire the romantic suspense novels she writes.

Karen’s romantic suspense novel, Erotic Deception, published by MuseItUp, attracted a wealth of 5 star reviews many of which are listed at Amazon click links .

Here’s the blurb:
Dr. Lily Delaney is running from her ex-fiancé who just happens to be the District Attorney for Kansas City. He also happens to be as crooked as can be. Each minute she spends in Kansas City is one more minute that she is closer to ending up just like her brother. Dead! Leaving Kansas City, she heads for her deceased brother's sanctuary and runs headlong into... ...Sheriff Jet Walker takes one look at the bombshell that ruined his cruiser and knows Lily is trouble. With her lusciously sassy mouth, he is not sure whether he should be handcuffing her to arrest her or handcuffing her, pushing her skirt up, and taking her where she stands. As Lily tries to come up with one story after another about why she caused an accident, Jet knows his calm, quiet town has most certainly been disrupted... ...As has his libido. Jet is the type who does not believe in happily ever after. Ever since his ex-wife messed with his heart in a horribly deceiving manner, the sheriff has found that no-strings-attached flings are the way to go. But there is something different about Lily. Her outer beauty is matched by her inner beauty and Jet starts to hope that he might be able to have that relationship that some of his friends have found. But before he can declare any feelings, new information comes to light. It has the sheriff wondering if he has finally found someone who fills that void and soothes his erotic lusts or if Lily has just proven once and for all that when it comes to his heart, it always seems to fall for that...Erotic Deception

'We took away the rules and let them write whatever the hell they liked' 

HOLD-UP by Lucille Robinson   A rapist learns why crime doesn’t pay—will he survive the lesson?    
Partial Review on Amazon: This story is thoughtful and well-written. I liked the premise a lot, but would have liked to have read more. The ending was justifiably abrupt, but it did leave the story feeling somehow incomplete. Nonetheless, it's a good, short read.
JUDGMENT DAY by Angelika Devlyn   An injured woman falls into the hands of a psychic psychopath.
FOR ART’S SAKE by Elizabeth Coldwell   Just what is Danni prepared to do for Art’s Sake?    
Partial Review on Amazon: I don't claim spanking as one of my turn-ons, but I enjoyed this erotic piece all the same. The story is well-written and cohesive and moves to a satisfying ending.
SIMON SEEKS by Nathan L. Yocum   Gotta find someone, go to Simon Craig. But don’t get on his bad side.   
Partial Review on Amazon: This story is executed beautifully, offering creative visuals and awesome depth to details other authors might leave mundane. The only disappointing part is the ending, which seems far too abrupt for such an otherwise meticulously laid out story. I wanted to read more.
THE BAREFOOT HERO by Tim Fleming   Grieving man stumbles upon a remarkable form of heroism.    
Partial Review on Amazon: The Barefoot Hero" brought tears to my eyes. The story is bittersweet, tragic, and brilliantly written. The characterization is deep and thoughtful, leading to a conclusion that is as painful as it is gratifying. A lovely story.
THE JOURNEY by Megan Johns   A complex woman—wife and mother, has a most surprising secret.
TRIONA’S BEANS by Casey Wolf and Paivi Kuosmanen   Teenage girl saves a world between first and last dinner call.
THE MEAL by Mike Brecon   Reality TV at its ugliest and most brazen.
SEVEN DEADLY SINS by Karen Cote’   He won’t stop. There must be seven to forgive his own sins.
THE SMILE IN HER EYES by John B. Rosenman   Can a young girl and an old man find love in an intolerant society?    Partial Review on Amazon: Very well-written and creepy on many subtle fronts, "The Smile in her Eyes" reads like Lolita in The Twilight Zone. Pay attention to every little detail when you read this story or you'll miss out on its full brilliance.
SLUMFAIRY by Tonya Moore   A jaded mercenary is enlightened by her strange world.
TAKE TWO by Kit St. Germain   Post-apocalyptic humour, Canadian style
MALPAS (Novella) by Marion De Sisto   Her invisible & insatiable dream lover wants things his way. Not likely!
