Get the Hearth Motel prequel short story–KING IN CHAINS–free!

Under the Veil short story collection
If you’ve been following Heath and Siobhan Horan carefully in The Chieftain’s Daughter, Prince in Leather, and Viking Flame, you may have had some questions about their parentage, and particularly their father. Suffice it to say, I wrote him as an intentionally mysterious character, but I thought shedding some light on him in advance of the release of Knight in Leather wouldn’t hurt.

King in Chains is a short, “Ohhhh, I see” kind of story. It may even make you mad, but that’s okay. I’ll make it up to you in…oh, four Hearth books from now or so.

Get it in the Under the Veil collection, which is free at these e-book retailers (double-check price before downloading!):

“Which Holley Trent book should I read first?”

I hate when people ask me that, but I think it’s a pretty reasonable question.

The thing is…I don’t have a representative book. If you read my books in the order they were written in, you can chart my mood cycles, my tastes…my frustrations with this writing gig. So, I’ll write a string of books that are funnier, some that are more staid, and then a few that sort of straddle the line. Ask me which of my favorite book of mine is, and the answer may change from one day to the next. Just depends on where my head is.

But, still–you need someplace to start, so I’m going to run down a hit list that should nod to most styles I dwell in. Get your e-reader ready!

Rom-com-leaning Contemporary Romance

Sold As Is by Holley TrentRead my 2013 novel Sold as Is.

If left up to my own devices without any editorial oversight, I’d throw so many puns and juvenile jokes at you that you’d need to set aside your Kindle and lie down for a while. Sold as Is could have been worse. I behaved a lot.

It’s got a broke Millennial heroine and the hero is the governor of North Carolina’s son. Not political, though, because who needs that in a floofy book?

Moodier Contemporary Romance

On the Ropes bwwm romance Holley TrentRead One the Ropes (2015) (put a price-watch on that because it’s going down to 99¢ at some point in the next couple of days).

Sometimes my muse doesn’t feel very funny. Sometimes she gives me a heroine [or hero] who doesn’t want to tell all her secrets up front and who would rather put up walls than risk being hurt again.

It’s fourth in the Hearts and Minds series, but all those stories stand alone.

Super Dramaful Contemporary Romance

Teaching the Cowboy bwwm romance by Holley TrentRead Teaching the Cowboy (2014, revised 2015). Western-set IR with a single dad rancher, an ex-beauty queen tutor, ridiculous neighbors, a coming out, ADHDisms, and assorted small-town shenanigans.

It’s like a soap opera, but with more cow shit.

This one will take you a day to read. I suggest you enjoy it with the jar of moonshine you’ve been saving and a barbecue sandwich.

Snarky Paranormal Romance

Pursuing PatrickI always send folks to Shrew & Company. The series gets a little darker as it goes on, but it’s full of snark, has diverse, kick-ass heroines, and heroes who don’t get offended by attitude.

The series starter novella, Pursuing Patrick (2013) is free right now. It features a pub-owning catamount shifter and an ex-Durham PD cop who got fired ’cause she’s a mutant and who now runs an investigation agency staffed with ladies like her.

Big World PNR

Prince in Leather interracial fantasy romanceThe Afótama Legacy and Hearth Motel are set in the same world. The storylines overlap and the series share characters. Hearth leans a little more toward mainstream with heat level, so if you like big worldbuilding and slow-burning background plots, start with Prince in Leather (2015) (you needed an Irish-Persian fairy in your life, anyway).

The Hearth Motel books are set in part at an Outer Banks beach motel a band of fairy thugs has made their new home. (If I’m going to do ridiculous, I’m going to go all out with it.)

Broken Heroes PNR

Beast werewolf pnrHad to have a few, right? If you like heroes who are broody and of the “Leave me alone, I’m not worth loving” ilk, start with the Norseton Wolves novella Beast (2015). The first five Norseton Wolves novellas can each be read in a couple of hours, and they’re all a buck.

Beast features a werewolf with an eye patch and a heroine who’s straight out of Appalachia. There’s no big background plot in Norseton Wolves as it was meant to be a miniature series within a series, so you can read the first four in any order. They’re set at the exact same time.

I think that’ll do it. I’m sure some of my longtime readers will disagree that these are representative, but hey–I’m probably too close to my work. If you think there’s something blatantly missing from this list, feel free to tell me!

Designated Hitter by Holley Trent

When the blue-eyed brawler known as Quinn Hathaway arrives on Marina Cassevete’s doorstep for a job, her instinct is to send him away. Having only two weeks to flip her house, she doesn’t have time for problems. It turns out that Quinn has no fear of hard work at the job…or in the bedroom. But Marina can’t be both his lover and his boss. Keeping the lines from blurring in their relationship might prompt the end of their productive partnership altogether.

Lace Forever by Nicole Flockton

Lily Green lives by her daily to-do list. Designing an exclusive lingerie collection for a world famous diamond company is a dream come true, until she meets the person hired to protect the diamonds. None of her lists prepares her for when she meets the sexy bodyguard.

Grayson Warren desperately needs a job to get his security business back on track. He never expected it would come from a website called “Manservant”, nor that the job would lead him to an infuriating but sexy, list making lingerie designer.

Can Grayson show Lily there’s more to life than lists?

Bestselling author Nicole Flockton writes sexy contemporary romances, seducing you one kiss at a time as you turn the pages. Nicole likes nothing better than taking characters and creating unique situations where they fight to find their true love.

On her first school report her teacher noted “Nicole likes to tell her own stories”. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child and after having fun on a romance community forum that she finally decided to take the plunge and write a book.

Apart from writing Nicole is busy looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading.

Playing Pretend by Alyse Zaftig

Jude just lost his football scholarship because he was caught underage drinking. He needs to pay his tuition soon, or he’ll be sent home to Jasper, Indiana. His first assignment is with a romance novelist who wants to block scenes with him. But when her ex-husband enters the picture, Jude has to fight for his new lover.

Alyse Zaftig is a romance author who loves to write about women who break the mold. Sassy heroines are her favorite.
The Eyes of the Wolf by Emelia Mancini

Private detective Jake McDonnell has been hired to make sure Maria Rodriguez isn’t involved in illegal activities. He’s certain she’s on the up and up until he catches her heading to the seedier side of town. He follows, curious why she’d be walking into a dimly lit warehouse. What he discovers will leave his senses reeling and his cock throbbing.

Emilia Mancini lives with her husband, two children, and their numerous pets. Romance/erotica is her preferred reading and writing genre because nothing feels better than falling in love with someone new and her husband doesn’t like when she does that in real life.
Boyfriend by the Hour by Tara Crescent


I can’t believe I have the hots for an escort.

Cole Mitchell is ripped, bearded, sexy and dominant. When he moves next door to me, I find it impossible to resist sampling the wares.

But Cole’s not a one-woman kind of guy, and I won’t share.


She thinks I’m an escort. I’m not.

I thought I’d do anything to sleep with Sadie. Then I realized I want more. I want Sadie. For ever.

I’m not the escort she thinks I am.

Now, I just have to make sure she never finds out.

Helen and the Man from Troi by Holle Dolce

As a BDSM slave, Adam is used to serving women. It was only natural, then, that he become a Manservant. The stories of other men who work for Madame Troi, however, have him nervous, afraid that his work could affect his devotion to his Mistress.

Helen’s friend has decided to end Helen’s post-breakup blues by hiring Adam’s services. She thought she would just have a man meeting her every whim. Instead, she learns something about what we do for those we care about …

When Holle is not being a mother and a ghostwriter, she is a blogger and erotic fiction author. She specializes in BDSM erotica, usually with LGBT and feminist themes (those being close to her heart).
European Tour by L.V. Lewis

Brody Kent retires his rocker alter ego and takes an unlikely gig as personal assistant to pop star princess, Skylar Samuelson. He hopes that his foray as a mild-mannered PA by day doesn’t backfire, revealing to Skylar and the world the superstar he really is.

Growing up, L.V. Lewis wanted to be an internationally known rock star, but unfortunately, lived in the wrong part of the country to pursue that career (and neither American Idol nor The Voice were available then). An early love for the written word gave her the plan B she sought. Now she pens romance novels that let her live vicariously through rock stars and other fascinating archetypes.
Perfect on Paper by Kristina Knight

Nicholas Vega started ManServants as a way to make extra cash in college; five years later, his business is bigger than he ever imagined. And it’s in trouble. An angry ex-client wants to sue because one of his employees didn’t sleep with her. To keep things going, Nick takes on a client of his own – his best friend Daisy MacIntosh.

Daisy needs a boyfriend in a bad way. Her current boss – and ex-lover – has planned a retreat and makes no bones about wanting her back in his bed, at least for the weekend. Daisy wants a barrier between them, and an on-paper boyfriend seems like the best idea.

The problem? Once they’re playing at being in love, their fictional relationship might blow their real life friendship out of the water.

Once upon a time, Kristina Knight spent her days running from car crash to fire to meetings with local police–no, she wasn’t a troublemaker, she was a journalist. Her career took her all over the United States, writing about everything from a serial killer’s capture to the National Finals Rodeo. Along the way she found her very own Knight in Shining Cowboy Boots and an abiding love for romance novels. And just like the characters from her favorite books, she’s living her own happily ever after.

Kristina writes sassy contemporary romance novels; her books have appeared on Kindle Best Seller Lists. She loves hearing from readers, so drop her a line!

THE COUGAR’S WISH is available now!

The Cougar's Wish cover

The fourth story in the Desert Guards series is now available at all major e-book retailers. The Cougar’s Wish was probably the hardest story out of the series for me to write because I had to tie up a LOT of storylines, but also had to make some room for future world expansion. (You’ll see what I mean. All those spare were-cougars and fallen angels have to do something, right?)

Belle might very well be my favorite heroine of the series so far. She’s a fighter in so many ways and doesn’t have time for artifice. She’s definitely not sweet like Miles or emotionally crippled like Hannah, but she has plenty of flaws and recognizes every one.

You can get The Cougar’s Wish at one of these retailers:

When Reedsville Roosters slugger Al Felton breaks his leg during spring training and needs a special escort home to Baton Rouge, her father calls on her for a favor she can’t refuse. Al’s not a man who’s so easy to ignore, but Edy refuses to let her guard down.

When her step sisters are finalists in a teen modeling competition at a chic resort in the beautiful mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, her step mother offers her an opportunity: prove herself a competent personal assistant and earn not only a stellar referral, but a bona-fide introduction to the movers and shakers of the modeling world. This is Cinder’s chance at freedom but as usual, her step mother seems to find fault in everything she does—even when she sends her to seduce suspected modeling judge, Aiden Burdock.

Aiden is no modeling judge. He’s a tour guide with a pack of bachelor wolves depending on him to rustle up quality clients and keep their business afloat. But Aiden never wanted to be an alpha. He dreams of freedom and running wild in the hills. Having six…no seven…now eight wolves depending on him for leadership and jobs is more than he counted on when he fled pack expectations in Colorado.

Now Aiden is faced with how to tell Cinder he’s just a working stiff, like her, and a wolf shifter to boot. As Aiden and Cinder’s fairy godmother build up her self esteem and she starts falling in love with a man of secrets, Cinder’s step mother is determined one of her daughters will win the modeling competition. Even if it means she has to go all the way—and permanently eliminate the competition.
