Find out how hot it gets when you mix a sexy firefighter with a spunky redhead hell bent on driving him crazy!

Logan Knight is staying with his grandfather while recuperating from an accident that claimed the lives of his two best friends. He needs time to heal his body and his heart from the tragedy of that fire.

Libby Turner will do whatever it takes to keep her parents from placing her beloved grandmother into an assisted living facility—even masquerading as a 70-year-old woman. From the moment the two meet, sparks fly and they can’t keep their hands off each other.

Torrid Teasers Volume 43: The Whole Enchilada & Lust Desserts

by Meagan Hatfield

Torrid Romance Contemporary

Rating: Sensual Romance – Sensual

Now available from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid

THE WHOLE ENCHILADA:
Owning his own franchised Mexican restaurant isn’t the dream job Dale Jennings had hoped for. The rigid menu and atmosphere stifles his creativity, and it doesn’t take long before he finds himself at the taco shop across the street, enjoying the authentic cuisine of his drop-dead gorgeous business rival, Lina Sanchez. But even though her food is damn near as hot as her sun kissed body, Dale is determined not to let anything stand in the way of his success. Especially not some California girl’s enchiladas.

LUST DESSERTS:
As her best friend Lina puts it, Samantha Logan needs to get laid. Coming off a bad relationship, Sam is not eager to jump on the commitment bandwagon. But when a edibly handsome stranger catches her attention at the local bar, Sam can’t deny the intense attraction, and decides to give into the moment and satisfy her unfulfilled desires.

Changes at Whiskey Creek Press

January 1, 2008

From January Whiskey Creek Press Newsletters:

The Winds of Change

Happy New Year! As we ring in what will hopefully be a great 2008, we can’t help but think back on 2007. We thank all our authors, readers, and staff for making 2007 the best year yet for Whiskey Creek Press as a company! We’ve come a long way since 2003 when we started, and it’s because of all your hard work and readership!

However, as one year comes to end, so starts another one, and it’s time to put the past behind us and look to the future. Whiskey Creek is taking this new year to heart and changing a few things which we hope will better the company. A lot of things have happened which affect both the General and Torrid lines of Whiskey Creek Press, so this month the articles for the General newsletter and the Torrid ones are the same. But don’t forget to check out our two very different spotlights for each if you are one who reads both newsletters! We have a fabulous General Line article by Sue Perkins on writing fantasy, and for the Torrid line Beth Kery delves into her New Year Resolutions and the fears that authors face.

Alrighty, so onto the many changes with which we’re ringing in 2008. First and foremost, our author contracts have changed. Starting with all newly signed contracts, Whiskey Creek is now directly picking up the printer set-up fee for print books. Authors will not be paying a dime to have their books published – instead, the money will be flowing to the author. This is a big change, and one that we hope will benefit all current and future authors who choose to publish with Whiskey Creek Press. The contract has also changed from a two-year term to a three-year term, allowing more time for both WCP and the author to promote the work and for readers to buy it!

And okay, that’s all great, super really, but what do we have for the readers? Well, starting this month all new releases are available in four formats! We’ve added both the LIT and the MOBI formats! This is great for you all, because it gives you more choices in your format. If you have an ereader that prefers LIT, now you can get that format directly without having to convert from HTML! And yup, of course we’re keeping our ever-popular PDF and HTML formats. We are currently working on converting our backlist to eventually offer all four formats for all WCP books, but that’s going to take a lot of time and effort! Look for those formats for older releases in the coming months!

The addition of the MOBI format also means that we’re going to be available on Amazon’s Kindle! Our newer books will be available there first, but again, we hope to offer our whole backlist for the Kindle eventually. We’re trying to get Whiskey Creek books out in as many ways as you want them!

There are just so many things going on at Whiskey Creek Press, this just keeps on going! Are you tired yet? The next big thing, which you’ll be hearing about for the next coming months, is our five year birthday! This is a big deal, as five years in the epublishing world is a huge accomplishment. We will be celebrating the whole month, and yes, that includes when people are off to EPICON too! We’ll keep a few people around to make sure the rest of us stay amused! We’re going to have scavenger hunts, games, special guests, loop chats, night chats, day chats, and prizes, prizes, and MORE PRIZES!

But to participate, you’ll need to be a member of our reader loops! Have you joined yet? You can click here for our Torrid Readers Group, and click here for our General Line Readers Group. And hey – the party’s going to be going on at BOTH GROUPS! And we’ll be giving away some big hints starting in February, so make sure you’re listed before then for all the juicy details!

Here’s wishing you a happy and prosperous new year in everything you do!
