Charity Novella

As you might know, I sometimes write male/male romance. This November I have a book coming out called STRANDED. It will be released as a solo novella and in an anthology with Marie Sexton​ and Christine d’Abo​. I’m very happy to report that a portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) National Help Center**.

My cover is pretty awesome. Take a look, and in case you’re interested here’s the blurb:


Cabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.

Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.

With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.

**Founded in 1996, the GLBT National Help Center is a non-profit organization that provides vital peer-support, community connections and resource information to people with questions regarding sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Utilizing a diverse group of GLBT volunteers, they operate two national hotlines, the GLBT National Hotline and the GLBT National Youth Talkline, as well as private, volunteer one-to-one online chat, that help both youth and adults with coming-out issues, safer-sex information, school bullying, family concerns, relationship problems and a lot more.

Literacy Tea

Reminder! I’ll be one of the authors at the Buns & Roses Romance Tea for Literacy in October. I think there are a few spaces left at my table. I’ll have goodies for my table mates. I’ll also be at the signing and would love to meet you all. So, please sign up to attend this great event and hear keynote speaker Tessa Dare, then stop by and say hello!


TAMED In The Wild

My friend Charissa found TAMED at the B&N in Rancho Mirage. Wahoo! Go, Shane. Go!!


Monday Morning Musings

I can’t look at this mug without breaking into song. “I like big butts and I cannot lie…” I’ve been humming it all morning. Curse you, coffee mug!!


Hero Inspiration

This seemed like a good time to post another inspiration photo for Shane, the hero in TAMED, my final Corcoran Team book. It’s also a good excuse to post another photo of Stephen Amell. Do you blame me?


The heroine, Makena, thinks of Shane this way:

“Seeing him now, the broad shoulders and fit build that had his T-shirt hugging his biceps and hanging loose over his flat stomach, made her a little breathless. The short light brown hair and that familiar scruff around his chin just begged for her to run a finger over it. ”

That seems about right.

Final Corcoran Team Book!

For those who have been waiting for the digital version of TAMED…it’s here! My last Corcoran Team book is now out in print and ebook. You really should buy one of each. That’s reasonable, right?


Shane can’t stop thinking about his best friend’s baby sister. Makena has the hots for her big brother’s best friend. She also has a side job she’s hiding. One where she helps unmask men pretending to be Navy SEALs. But now someone is after her and danger is closing in and her quiet life on the eastern shore of Maryland is over.

That’s TAMED. If you want to give it a try, go to Amazon, Barnes & Noble or iBooks

RWA Conference Booksigning

This is what the booksigning looked like at the RWA conference Wednesday night:


There were approximately six billion people there…or so it felt like. Thank you to all the wonderful readers, reviewers, bloggers, fellow authors and librarians who stopped by to say hello. I learned a few things: (1) many of you are as excited for the October release of MINE as I am; (2) when I talk about Bad Boys Undercover series from Avon and say “this series features undercover alpha dudes who are trained to protect” some of your eyes light up and I LOVE that; (3) some of you are naughty…and l love that, too; and, (4) some of you want your books in print no matter what (and I get that). It was a thrill to meet all of you & to sign so many books. I love selling books for charity.

Final Corcoran Book!

My final Corcoran Team book is out in print! TAMED released today (it comes out in digital on August 1st). In this one, Shane Baker has the hots for his best friend’s sister. They are supposed to meet for dinner but a masked gunman has another idea. Damn those masked gunmen.


RT Book Reviews named this a Top Pick! for August and said: “If you love hot alpha males, pick up Tamed. Dimon really outdoes herself, and this just might be the best story in the series.”

Clearly this means you should go order 10 or 20 copies. You can make that happen at most Walmarts, Targets, some grocery stores and Amazon or Barnes & Noble.


If you posted a review for the first in my erotic romance series, MERCY, any time either before or right now on Amazon, B&N or Goodreads, and would like a treat, please email me at hkdimon @ gmail.com me with a copy of the review link. Thanks!

Pre-Order Sale

I don’t know how long this will last, so act quickly…my last Corcoran Team Book from Harlequin Intrigue, TAMED (out in print July 21st and in ebook on August 1st), is up for pre-order on Amazon and for some reason the print version is only $3.30. That’s more than $2 off the list price and less expensive than you can get it at release time at even Walmart (I think).


To entice you further, this one is a Top Pick! for August at RT Book Reviews. The reviewer said, “If you love hot alpha males, pick up Tamed. Dimon really outdoes herself, and this just might be the best story in the series.”


So, go grab it at AMAZON while the price is good.
