About Return to Emerald City

A Collection of Sci-fi Romance Novellas Inspired by The Wizard of Oz

Dorothy’s Red Shoes

There’s no place like home… Dorothy is already feeling homesick for Emerald City, and wonders if taking a job halfway around the world was a mistake. When her love life crumbles–again–will she run for home?

His Replay Girl

If he only had the nerve… Ten years ago, Quinn made the best choice of his life, and the biggest mistake. It’s true, his band, Lionheart, is one of the biggest in the world, but how much does it mean if he can’t tell the woman he loves how he feels?

His Reboot Girl

If only he had a brain… Scott woke up with his head spinning and not much else going on up there. Now he’s a suspect in a terrorist plot, and on the run. One woman insists she’s the key to his past and his freedom. Too bad he doesn’t remember her.

His Rewind Girl

If he only had a heart…. Cam is as much machine as man. There are days he loathes the CyGes implants that saved his life but couldn’t do the same for his family. They replaced his limbs, but now he needs someone to mend his heart.


Cover_Return to Emerald City copyHer voice was familiar. Her face wasn’t. Then again, my entire memory consisted of the last thirty minutes. She could have been my sister, if I had one, and I wouldn’t have known.

“We have to leave.” The pretty blonde glanced over her shoulder, as though listening for something. “The police will be here any minute.” She snapped her attention back to me. “Baby…” She hesitated. “If you want to stay free, we leave right now.”

Why was I in the hospital? Thoughts tumbled through my head in random patterns. If my brain were a computer, it would have suffered a catastrophic failure and be struggling to come back on line. How did I know her? Without waiting for my reply, she dug into a shoulder bag and pulled out a bundle of clothes. “Here, put these on.” She turned to the bank of monitors beside the bed, flicked switches, and yanked the sticky pads from my chest and wrists, to let them drop to the floor. It stung. She ripped a larger pad from my forehead, and the monitor began beeping. The tiny jolts of discomfort acted like a slap in the face. They woke me up.

Boss Likes Curves: A Curvy Girl’s Billionaire

Sabrina wasn’t certain how she managed to spend the rest of the car ride with Gideon talking about non-work-related things, but she did. His questions about her past dates lingered in her mind, but never once, thank God, did she let slip any hint of her long interest in him. However, she did recall her disastrous dating past, even for just a few moments. Like a bad Hollywood flashback montage—slow motion and all.

There had been Tim in college, but that had ended when they’d received job offers on opposite coasts; neither had looked back. Then there was Ray. She’d made the mistake of moving in with him. Only after that particularly disastrous move did she see more than one cruel side of him. It wasn’t dirty socks on the bathroom floor, expecting her to pick up after him. He was simply mean, cruel, and angry, and directed it at her.

She was never quite pretty enough for him. Never quite smart enough or funny enough or really ever anything enough. Those comments didn’t start until she’d moved in with Ray, of course. And once they did, she moved out.

Sabrina refused to have the same kind of poor judgment she’d had in the past. She’d never jeopardize her job with Gideon Hotels, never jeopardize her friendship with Gideon. Licking her lips, she forced her mind from the past and concentrated on now. On her conversation with Gideon. It just proved that she could be friendly toward him outside the office, and that reinforced her desire to keep things friendly. Even.

Gideon stepped out of the car and moved around it before Vince could open her door. Offering his arm, Gideon escorted her inside.

The Met already buzzed with people; the chandelier shone brightly down on the white marble. Sabrina looked around the foyer and suddenly realized she had no idea what tonight’s showing was. She’d blame Gideon for distracting her, but she’d been the one distracted. Wasn’t his fault she found him so…well, distracting.

Eve Devon: The Love List

Character Interview with Ethan Love from The Love List

Susana: Welcome to the hot seat, Ethan Love. Perhaps you could start off by telling us what brings you to Nora King’s office at the start of The Love List?

Ethan: I need to ask Nora for a favor to do with my brother and her sister.

Susana: Care to elaborate?

Ethan winces a little.

Ethan: Let’s just say that I need Nora on-side if I’m to help my brother get his life back together.

Susana: Sounds complicated! What’s your relationship like with your brother?

Ethan’s jaw clamps tight and he draws a deep breath.

Ethan: It could be better—I need to make it better. I haven’t always agreed with the way he chose to live his life but I see now that I should have stayed and made sure he was alright, instead of taking my help where it was wanted. I don’t intend to let him down like that again.

Susana: You mention you took your help where it was wanted…so what’s your occupation?

Ethan: I kind of have two! I own a chain of deluxe leisure facilities called Love Leisure that funds the work that takes up the majority of my time—I also work for a charity that provides disaster relief. I go to whichever disaster zone I’m deployed to and help provide shelter, water, food, etc.’

Susana: That sounds very rewarding but I imagine it could also be dangerous?

Ethan’s gorgeous blue eyes take on a shrewd, assessing look.

Ethan: Crossing the road can be dangerous.

Susana: True but I can’t help noticing your shoulders have tightened a little there, Ethan.

Ethan: I’m fine. Next question.

Susana: Okay, tell me your first impressions of Nora King?

A warm throaty chuckle fills the air.

Ethan: A princess in skyscraper heels with defiant fiery button-brown eyes and the dreamiest, creamiest, palest of complexions.

Susana: Wow. A case of instant attraction?

Ethan leans forward in his seat as if to let me in on a secret.

Ethan: There’s definitely something about Nora that sort of slams into me and leaves me a little breathless.

Susana: I’ve heard it’s pretty much impossible to distract Nora King from her work—she’s a complete workaholic, isn’t she?

Ethan: Don’t be so sure about that. Even with the business-as-usual façade she wears, I can see the struggle she’s trying to survive underneath. How she can’t quite hide the fact that grief over losing her father has stripped her bare and she doesn’t know what to do about it.

Adobe Photoshop PDFSusana: You’re saying she might need a little help at the moment?

Ethan: I’ve seen that same hollowed-out shocked look on people’s faces when their worlds explode and they’re left trying to rebuild what they can. If I can help her out while I’m here, I will.

Susana: Sounds like you kind of have a thing for helping people.

Ethan: Do you find something wrong with that?

Susana: I guess I’m wondering who helps you?

Ethan: I don’t need help. I am the guy that does the helping.

Susana: Apart from you needing Nora’s help, of course…

Ethan shifts uncomfortably.

Ethan: Right. Apart from that.

Susana: Back to the tightening of those impressive shoulders of yours—want to share, now?

Ethan: I really don’t and I really won’t.

Susana: Hmm, you know I’m wondering if you’re not thinking that Nora would be the perfect distraction from whatever it is that has those shoulders of yours tensing up?

Ethan’s incredible blue eyes twinkle and there’s a slow, sexy lift to his mouth.

Ethan: Did I mention Nora has this old-school “haughty” thing going on that I find completely sexy and that she has these big button eyes the colour of dark good-for-your-heart chocolate…

About The Love List

Falling in love is just not on Nora King’s To Do List…

Neither is accidentally super-gluing her shoe to her hand right before the biggest presentation of her life! With all the hard work she’d put into securing the family business after her father’s death, Nora has no choice but to accept help from a knight in shining armour.

Disaster relief worker Ethan Love is still haunted by his last deployment, and desperate for distraction. He’s in town to ask Nora for a major favour, and swooping in to save her presentation is a sure way to get her on side.

As Ethan sticks around and helps Nora through her grief, her barriers tumble down…but will she dare to swap her To Do lists for a How to Fall in Love list?

Right now he wanted to do something he knew he could do, and do well.

And if it helped burn off the latent energy so that maybe at some point later today he’d be able to sleep, even better.

Probably after he got some sleep things would go back to feeling simple and he’d stop worrying that his boss was going to judge him negatively for something any decent person would have done.

Realising he’d left his other bag behind, he called out, ‘Can you pop through to reception and pick up my garment bag, take out the blue suit and bring it to me?’

‘What did your last slave die of?’

Ethan looked in the mirror, liking how her harrumphed tone put the twinkle back in his eyes. ‘Happiness when I came out of the bathroom naked to fetch my own clothes?’

As he started removing jacket, top and jeans, he tried to make out more dark mutterings from the other side of the door before it was opened a notch and his clothes were pushed through the tiny gap and dumped on the chair inside the door. A few seconds later the door opened a little bit wider and she mumbled, ‘There was no tie in your bag.’

‘Oh, yeah. Don’t use them.’ He had no problem meeting her curious gaze and as her eyes dropped lower to take in his chest and the ink that wrapped around his right pectoral and shoulder, his grin grew impossibly wider. ‘Too restrictive.’

She shut the door firmly between them.

He chuckled. He might be suffering from insomnia, but even the fug of running on empty hadn’t diminished the spark of attraction between them.

I kind of secretly believe it’s not too late for me to train as a professional dancer, MMA expert, or get asked to be Angelina Jolie’s body-double. I know. This is why writing fiction is for me!

Growing up in locations like Botswana and Venezuela gave me quite the taste for adventure and my love for romances began when my mother shoved one into my hands in a desperate attempt to keep me quiet during TV coverage of the Wimbledon tennis finals.

When I wasn’t consuming books by the bucketload, I could be found pretending to be a damsel in distress or running around solving mysteries and writing down my adventures. As a teenager, I wrote countless episodes of TV detective dramas so the hero and heroine would end up together every week. As an adult, I worked in a library to conveniently continue consuming books by the bucketload, until realising I was destined to write contemporary romance and romantic suspense myself. I live in leafy Surrey in the UK, a book-devouring, slightly melodramatic, romance-writing sassy heroine with my very own sexy hero husband!

About Pitch Imperfect

Once-famous singer Anjuli Carver has returned to tiny Heaverlock Village alone and nearly broke. She’s poured every last penny into a rambling Victorian manor, hoping to start over. Trouble is, her money pit is falling to pieces and the only restoration architect for miles is Rob Douglas…her ex-fiancé.

For eight years, Rob has regretted not telling Anjuli why he never answered her letters. Being left at the altar broke his heart, but being used for sex one night in London after the fact nearly drove him to the edge of sanity, and he’ll be damned if he allows Anjuli to wreak havoc on his life again. He’ll restore her manor, all right, and give her taste of her own medicine while he’s at it.

But how long can revenge last when memories of their shared past keep rushing to the surface?

Soon, Rob wants answers. Why did Anjuli leave the international spotlight to become a recluse in the Scottish Borderlands? And why does she refuse to sing? Anjuli wants nothing more than to be left alone with her grief, even as she struggles to keep her sexy fantasies about Rob in check. With gossipy villagers, interfering friends and more secrets between them than notes on a scale, Anjuli and Rob will need to find forgiveness in order to work together, then decide if they’re willing to risk it all on an encore performance.

About Key to Love

When architect Elise Springer’s father is injured, she immediately leaves San Francisco to care for him. The last person she expects to encounter in her Pennsylvania hometown is her childhood friend Lucas Fisher. Lucas is investigating his brother’s death, and Elise can’t resist lending a hand.

Lucas longs for the close family ties he never had. He’s back in Scranton to set up a classic car restoration business and build a future. The torch he carries for Elise burns brighter than ever, but before he can declare his love, he must obtain the legal rights to adopt his nephew—and prove his brother’s death was no accident.

As they unearth clues pointing to find a murderer and a missing stash of money, Elise faces a dilemma. Is her career on the West Coast the key to her happiness, or is it an animal-cracker-eating four-year-old and his handsome uncle instead?

Barnes & NobleAmazon


Cover_KeytoLove copyLucas Fisher stood inside Whitman’s Paper and Paint Store, surrounded by the pungent scents of vinyl wallpaper, turpentine, and paint, and wondered how he had allowed himself to be tricked into abandoning his work at the garage. However, nothing had prepared him for Whitman’s Paint and Paper. It was like stepping onto another planet.

“What are we looking for again?” He watched her leaf through the pages of a pattern book with a speed that defied logic. “Blue dogs?”

“Ah, French blue, something like this.” She paused only long enough to point to a flower so small the average person would need a magnifying glass. She flipped the page before he had a chance to commit it to memory.

Lucas rubbed his bleary eyes with the palms of his hands. Every pattern had begun to look like the next, melting into a haze of swirling tones. God, he needed an aspirin and a beer. “You’re absolutely sure this wallpaper exists?” He squinted at her with a skeptical look, and she nodded, her fingers nimbly turning the pages of yet another book.


“Oh, terrific. There are at least five hundred books here, and we’ve been through what? Two dozen? I imagine you have someone lined up to hang the dang rolls?”

“Uh-huh, you and Fritz. But only if you’d stop talking and help me find it.”

“Me and your brother?” His voice came out in a hysterical wail. “Get serious, Liz, I’ve never wallpapered a room in my life.” Hell, he couldn’t wrap a Christmas present unless it was packaged in a box with four crisp corners and there were yards of paper to waste.

“Neither has Fritz, but he’s watched my mother do it many times. It’s a piece of cake.” Her hands continued flashing through the pages.

“Piece of cake? Are you sane? Unless Fritz has flashbacks, we’re doomed.” Lucas slumped down wearily onto a nearby chair and cupped his face in his hands.

Character Interview with Miriam, from Miriam’s Surrender

Susana: So, Miriam, you first appeared in your sister’s book, The Seduction of Esther, right?

Miriam: Yes, I did briefly. She and I both love old movies, and I borrowed one of her DVDs one evening. When I showed up at her apartment, she was just about to go out on a date and she was a complete mess. So, I helped her.

Susana: You helped her out a lot in that book, didn’t you?

Miriam: She’s my sister. I’ve always helped her out.

Susana: You’re very different from each other. How do you get along?

Miriam: [laughs] Yes, we’re completely different. She’s much more easy going and laid back, whereas I like to be in control of things to make sure everything turns out okay. Oh, and she has a beautiful singing voice.

Susana: So, would it be accurate to say you’re bossy?

Miriam: [clears throat] I don’t think I’m bossy, just detail-oriented and exacting.

Susana: What were you two like as children?

Cover_Miriams Surrender copyMiriam: Well, I’m the older one, and I always looked out for her. Except that one time…

Susana: What happened?

Miriam: I’d rather not say. Maybe later.

Susana: Okay. So tell me about Josh. How’d you meet him?

Miriam: Oh, well, we actually used to hate each other.

Susana: Really?

Miriam: Yes. See, at one point, he was in love with my sister. Or, at least, he thought he was. Turns out, he was in love with trying to fix her. Did I mention she could be a walking disaster around men? She was always dropping something, spilling something, etc. and he would help her out. He had this idea in his head of the type of woman she could be, with his help, of course. He was really arrogant!

Susana: So what happened?

Miriam: She fell in love with someone else, and he eventually figured out that if he wanted to remain friends with her, he’d have to accept her the way she is.

Susana: Why did you hate him?

Miriam: Because until he figured that out, he really hurt her.

Susana: So what made you change your mind about him?

Miriam: Well, we found out we were working together on a project and we had to figure out a way to get along. We talked it over and worked out our differences, and along the way, I discovered that he’s got this vulnerable side that very few people see. But I did, and, well, I warmed up to him. And his kisses? Amazing!

Susana: Are you two going to have a happily ever after?

Miriam: That depends. He’s got a secret that he’s keeping from me and I need to find out what it is so that I can trust him enough with my heart. I hope so!

About Miriam’s Surrender

Josh Lowenstein is a successful architect, hired to redesign the alumni club of a posh, private school in New York. He is strong, capable and knows the best way to do everything. Except let another woman in.

Miriam Goldberg is the Assistant Director of Outreach, and is Josh’s day-to-day contact for the redesign. She’s taken care of everyone around her, and forgotten how to let someone else take care of her.

With a tumultuous history, neither one is prepared to work together. As they get to know each other, the animosity disappears, but Josh is hiding something from Miriam and its discovery has the possibility of destroying their relationship. Only when they are both able to let the other in, and release some of the control they exert over everything, will they be able to see if their love can survive.


“I should probably go and let you get some sleep. I’ll pick you up Saturday around 11?”

“Perfect. I hope I’ll be recovered by then.”

He laughed, kissed her cheek and let himself out the door.

She put her hand to her cheek. His lips barely touched the skin, yet her cheek burned as if he’d branded her. They’d been warm and dry against her face. What would they be like against her lips? She leaned against the door and listened for the ding of the elevator’s arrival. It was whisking away the man she grew more attached to each time she was with him. She gripped the doorknob and willed herself not to turn it, not to open the door, not to run after him.

The elevator dinged. He’d kissed her.


Her cheek? Did he kiss her cheek? Oh hell. What was he, fourteen?

Josh continued to berate himself in silence as he flagged a taxi outside her building. He gave his apartment address to the driver and stared out the window.

Why didn’t he kiss her lips, like a man? Like a man who was attracted to a delectable woman.

He didn’t have a good answer for that question, except their relationship was new and he was still working things out.

She’d asked for his assistance and he’d run to her. It’s what he did. He helped people, and helping Miriam gave him a satisfaction deep in his soul. By aiding her, he established a connection between his heart and hers, except he couldn’t tell her.

If he did, she’d in all likelihood run from him, especially after all the support he’d tried to give her sister. She’d think he was doing the same thing, maybe confusing the two of them, and she’d be far from the truth.

About the Author

AuthorPic copyWhen I was a little girl and couldn’t fall asleep, my mother would tell me to make up a story. Pretty soon, my head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Each character had a specific personality, a list of likes and dislikes, and sometimes, even a specific accent or dialect. Even as an adult, I think about the characters and stories at night before I fall asleep, or in the car on my way to or from one of my daughters’ numerous activities (hey, anything that will drown out their music is a good thing).

One day, I started writing them down (it was either that or checking into the local mental hospital—the computer was way less scary). Since then, I’ve published two contemporary romances with Whiskey Creek Press. The Seduction of Esther is my first book with Rebel Ink Press, and I’m excited to be part of their team.

In the real world, I’m the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men I know. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling and watching TV. In between chauffeuring my daughters to after-school activities that require an Excel spreadsheet to be kept straight, I serve on our Temple Board and volunteer for way more things than I have time to do. I also write freelance articles for magazines and newspapers, and edit newsletters.

When all of that gets overwhelming, I retreat to my computer, where I write stories that let me escape from reality. In my made-up world, the heroines are always smart, sassy and independent. The heroes are handsome and strong with just a touch of vulnerability. If I don’t like a character, I can delete him or her; if something doesn’t work, I can rewrite it. It’s very satisfying to be in control of at least one part of my life.

About Heartbreak on a Stick by Sabrina York

When A-List movie star Jason Sherwood returns to the hometown that once rejected him, he has one goal in mind: Getting revenge on the woman who broke his heart so many years ago. But when he discovers his assumptions about her were wrong, he only wants to win her back. Hopefully, it’s not too late.

Gina Fox has always pined for her high school lover…and now he has returned, turning her world upside down. But life isn’t as simple now as it was then. And she can’t get over the fact that Jason walked away from her without a word. When he launches a sultry seduction, she tries, with everything in her, to resist…because at his core, Jason is nothing but heartbreak on a stick.



Hell. Even now, she heard his voice, dancing on the breeze.


Louder now. More substantive.

Her heart lurched. Her head swung around. She stared.

Oh shit.

This was not a fantasy or her imagination or even a wish. He was here.

She scrambled to her feet and brushed off her butt, forcing her knees to lock, even though they wobbled. “Jace— Um, Jason.”

He was tall. Much taller than he’d been. And broad. His shoulders were breathtaking. And his muscles—muscles the boy had not had, honed through years of working out for parts, no doubt—filled his tight black T-shirt.

She ripped her gaze away from the tantalizing bulges to the lines of his face. Gawd. Tantalizing there too. His lips—which she remembered, tasted still—full and lush. His dark eyes were fringed with sinful lashes. The scar on his right eyebrow, the dimples, the curve of his cheek.

It was difficult to breathe.

“I-I didn’t expect to see you here.”

He smiled and something in her gut quivered. “I didn’t expect to see you.” He took a step closer. And another. “You… look good.” His throat worked.

“You, ah, you too.” Good was not the word.

She’d drooled over the TV screen Sunday nights when Blood Curse came on—the few times she’d dared to watch. Jason as a tormented vampire was irresistible. But his screen persona was nothing to his presence here now. He was like a beautiful spider’s web, luring her closer for one more glance when she knew, if she came too close, she would be trapped, consumed.

Her instincts told her to run.

She resolved not to. She resolved to face him. And be…civil.

To that end, she smiled. It was a light, flippant smile. It cost her. “Aren’t you supposed to be having a parade or something?”

A shadow passed over his features, as though he didn’t care for her blasé air. “Or something.” He shoved his hands in his pockets.

“You really shouldn’t miss it.”

“Shouldn’t I?” He got that tone, the one he used to get when he was feeling rebellious and truculent. He’d never used it on her before.

“Eden will be devastated.”

“Oh, well, God forbid I disappoint Eden Ames.” He strolled around her, taking her in, though she turned with him because it seemed the prudent thing to do. One did not turn one’s back on a petulant panther.

“She dislikes being disappointed.”

This seemed to annoy him. The muscle in his cheek tightened and bunched. He leaned in and hissed, “Fuck Eden Ames. Fuck all of them.”

She didn’t know why she lurched back. His vehemence, perhaps, the heat of his breath, or the vitriol. But she lurched back and kept going, as he followed, until she backed into a tree.

He loomed over her, far too close. And Lord, yes. He was much taller. He smelled the same though, like musk and man and Jason. She’d missed his scent. She’d missed it so much she was tempted to close her eyes and just breathe it in, fill her lungs with him until she could hold no more.

But she couldn’t close her eyes. Her gaze was riveted to his.

Tension crackled and spit between them.

When he edged closer, she set a hand on his chest. To hold him back. Probably. His heart thudded beneath her palm.

He was harder than he used to be. Oh, physically, certainly, but in other ways as well. There was a coldness in his eyes she’d never seen before.

It frightened her. And thrilled her.

She flinched when he lifted a hand and cupped her cheek. His touch was warm, gentle. He didn’t say anything, just stared at her, which was unnerving. But when he spoke, his words were more unnerving still, though whispered as they were. “Dear God, Gina, how are you even prettier?”


He didn’t let her answer. His mouth closed over hers in a heated rush. A dizzying hunger snarled through her as she tasted him on her tongue. Yes, her soul cried, yes! Yes!

He moved closer, pressing her against the tree, sealing their bodies and their mouths and ravishing her with an unleashed passion.

She’d forgotten. Well, maybe not forgotten, but certainly released her hold on the memory. It was far too painful to live without him. To wake up every day knowing her life was devoid of the brilliance he brought.

Now it all came rushing back in a scorching tide, swamping her, spinning her about and sweeping her quickly toward the oblivion of the fall.

His kiss was a tumult. It was passion and need and wild frenzy. It was lips and teeth and tongues. It was murmured whispers and muffled moans.

He shoved his fingers through her hair to hold her still, then tipped her head and ate his way down to her neck, to nuzzle her there as he once had done. To make her wild and mad. To make her succumb when she really knew better.

She knew better now. She knew where this could lead, what catastrophe they taunted.

And the true tragedy?

She didn’t care.

She didn’t care that this could ruin her, devastate her, burn her up from the inside out.

She didn’t care.

Kiss me. Take me. Destroy me.
