We’ve been remiss! We got so busy publishing Possessed, Undressed, and in a Mess that we completely forgot to announce Out of the Frying Pan! So without further ado, may we present two Sophie Mouette titles!

PUM cover webPossessed, Undressed, and in a Mess
by Sophie Mouette

Audience: Fiction | Romance | Sexy Romance | Paranormal Romance

A séance gone wildly wrong leaves hotelier Angela Georgenes sharing her body with a randy Victorian ghost. Someone’s after a treasure allegedly hidden in the hotel and the ghost wants to tell Angela—but can only communicate when Angela’s on the verge of orgasm.

Talk about awkward.

Angela—and the ghost—are both hot for new handyman Tyler Woodruff, but is he a knight in a shining pickup or the thief? In truth, he is there under false pretenses: he’s a fortune hunter who liberates unappreciated artifacts. Distracted by Angela’s wicked imagination and uninhibited bedroom antics, he doesn’t want to fall in love with her any more than she does with him.

But admitting their true feelings is the only way the ghost can reveal the nature of the treasure—and the real threat.

OOTFP front webOut of the Frying Pan
by Sophie Mouette

Audience: Fiction | Romance | Sexy Romance

Take one chef displaced in the wacky world of Hollywood,
Add one hunky pool boy who isn’t who he seems,
Mix with a heavy dash of spicy sex.

Then fold in a self-absorbed starlet who’s on a different diet every night,
Blend with her action-hero boyfriend (secret ingredient: closet cross-dresser).

Finally, garnish with a passel of crazy relatives, one lovestruck Welsh corgi, and two peacocks who just want to be left alone.

Serve with a nice fruity Merlot.

Out of the Frying Pan blends hot sex with the spirit of classic romantic comedy—the result is mouthwatering!

It’s October, and you know what that means? It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, it is if you turn into a crazy woman because of Halloween, which is what happens to Soul’s Road Press author Dayle A. Dermatis. She loves her some Halloween, baby.

Although she hasn’t written any stories set at Halloween (something she says she’ll rectify soon!), she does have some fantasy stories with vampires and ghosts and Old Scratch himself, so if you’re looking for some holiday-themed reading, here are our suggestions!

(Note: None of these are super-spooky, and all of them have some level of humor.)

“Blood Relations”

The woman known as the “Vegan Martha Stewart” learns who her infamous father really is…and their relationship threatens to ruin their respective empires. A funny fantasy short story—with a bite!

Amazon Kindle | Barnes & Noble Nook | Smashwords

“The Devil Went Down to the Sunset Strip”

Angrrr Management were four talented guys. (They really were. I wasn’t just some starry-eyed groupie; I knew decent music and I knew stage presence.) Talented, yes, and awfully pretty, all of them. And every last one of them was dumber than a post. Had they never HEARD of Robert Johnson?

“The Devil Went Down to the Sunset Strip” is a hilarious urban fantasy short story about 80s hair metal and selling your soul to Satan.

Includes bonus short story “Hell’s Belles”!

Amazon Kindle | Barnes & Noble Nook | Smashwords

“Feline Design”

Even Satan needs a vacation once in awhile. But perhaps taking the form of a fuzzy kitten wasn’t the smartest of ideas…. A Miranda Contreau paranormal short story.

Amazon Kindle | Barnes & Noble Nook | Smashwords

“Hell’s Belles”

Teaching etiquette to a spoiled debutante can be hell…literally. A funny fantasy with a wicked Southern twang.

Includes bonus story “The Devil Went Down to the Sunset Strip”!

Amazon Kindle | Barnes & Noble Nook | Smashwords

“Some Old Lover’s Ghost”

Helena runs Paranormal Manifestation Services–PMS for short. When she’s hired by Beth and Marguerite to find out why a ghost is bothering Marguerite, she doesn’t expect to get a crush on Beth…which makes things especially awkward when she learns who the ghost is. Rainbow Reviews called this short story “unexpectedly romantic [and] heart-wrenching.”

Includes a bonus interview with the author about the writing of the story, her own paranormal experiences, and more.

We here at Little Kisses Press are delighted to have obtained the rights to reprint popular Sophie Mouette novel Cat Scratch Fever, which garnered 4-star reviews from both Romantic Times Book Reviews and Just Erotic Romance Reviews!

CSF cover webWhat development coordinator Felicia DuBois at the Southern California Cat Sanctuary needs: Sex with something other than her vibrator. Gender and number of participants optional.

What Felicia doesn’t need: Someone sabotaging the make-or-break benefit that could mean the future of the sanctuary. She especially doesn’t need ultra-sexy Gabe Sullivan from the Zoological Association sniffing around, wielding the authority to close the cash-strapped exotic cat breeding facility.

But damn his smoking hotness!

Felicia’s in a race against time to find both sexual fulfillment and the saboteur before the Sanctuary’s future becomes as endangered as the felines it houses.

– Romantic Times Book Review (4 stars)

“Braceleted” by Andrea Dale

Nell Sheridan was Sutter’s Fork’s wild child, and she ran off to travel the world as soon as she possibly could. But now she’s back for a visit…and back into the arms of Lucas Brandt.

Except when she left, she and Lucas had agreed there was no spark.

Now? It’s not a spark, it’s an inferno—all because Lucas holds her wrists. In the bedroom, Nell discovers when she’s restrained, she can fly free.

Will that be enough to make her want to stay with Lucas in Sutter’s Fork?

Warning: Contains explicit sex, light bondage, and true love. You know…all the good stuff.

Waking the Witch by Dayle Ivy

Four boys confess to the murder of a woman… who died a hundred years ago.

The violent encounter Rowan Everly survived in college jolted awake her psychic power to see past images while holding a related object. At the behest of a friend, she comes to the privileged prep school town of Millburn, New York, to investigate the current rape and murder, and hopefully clear her friend’s son’s name.

Rowan’s not sure she’s up to the task. Her deeply ingrained mistrust of men makes her question where her loyalties lie. The deeper she investigates, the less anything makes sense. The boys seem truly horrified by what happened—almost as if they hadn’t had control over it.

Her initial encounter with sheriff Toby Candusco isn’t pleasant for either of them. But his calm support of her, and his unwavering desire to see justice done, gives her the strength to not only face her fears, but to reexamine the core beliefs that shape who she is.

Only then can she face and destroy the real menace…and save everyone around her.

Waking the Witch is an atmospheric gothic novel by new talent Dayle Ivy.
