A Little Repacking

I have a book due July 1st, so the next two weeks will be a race to the finish. I’ll be doing some giveaways on twitter and my FB Page. Until that starts I thought I’d show off the cover for ONE NIGHT IN VEGAS. This is a re-packaging of one of my early books, VIVIA LAS BAD BOYS!, an anthology of three related novellas. I got the rights back and I’ll be listing it for sale soon. The original price through Kensington Publishing was something like $14.00. Through the wonders of self-publishing I’ll be able to sell it for much less, more like $3.99. So, stay tuned.

Callen!

Many of you have been asking for Callen’s story in the Hanover Brothers series. The good news is that the book will be out in August. Since the cover blurb just went up on online bookstores, I thought I’d post it here to make sure you all got to see it.

LongWayHome

The Hanover brothers are trying to live down the con-man reputation of their late father. But they can’t blame their father for all their problems in life—or in love…

Callen Hanover has led a tough life. But after years of roaming, he’s finally settled back home in Sweetwater to reunite with his brothers, and rebuild Shadow Hill, his grandmother’s crumbling home. The last person he expected to see at his door was Grace Pruitt—ex-girlfriend and partner to the FBI agent who’s determined to put Callen away.

Grace Pruitt is in town to save the two men she cares about the most—her former partner who seems to be on a downward spiral, and Callen, the man who ran before she could explain who she really was…or tell him some shocking news. Can the secrets of the Hanover family’s past be just the thing to save them all? Or is it already too late?

If you’re interested, you can pre-order at numerous places, including Amazon and B&N.

Release Day

My latest from Harlequin Intrigue – the third of three in a row – is out in print (digital comes out 6/1)!! TRACELESS is a Corcoran Team book. This one takes place in Southern Utah. Alpha dudes! Red rocks! Marriage in jeopardy! I think you get the picture…

9780373697656

An undercover agent will travel to the unforgiving Utah desert to rescue his wife in HelenKay Dimon’s latest Corcoran Team novel.

Connor Bowen hasn’t seen his wife since she left him seven months ago claiming he was more married to his job than he was to her. Now his past has plunged Jana into mortal danger. This time the former Black Ops agent won’t let anything come between him and the woman he’d lay down his life to protect.

Jana moved across the country to start over far from Connor. But after she’s brutally abducted, she has to once again rely on the Corcoran Team leader for survival. Seeing Connor again reawakens old feelings, and she considers taking him back—but will she even get the chance?

For those who have been wondering about Connor Bowen and his estranged wife, all will be explained! For those who haven’t read the series, do not worry. The book stands alone. You don’t need to read the others first…but please feel free to buy them all.

mem day

In honor of the holiday, I’m giving away books on my Facebook page. You can check it out HERE.

What I’m Ordering

I’m a big fan of books with secrets. I’m also a big fan of author Heather Gudenkauf. She has a book coming out called LITTLE MERCIES and I just pre-ordered it. Check it out:

little mercies

Veteran social worker Ellen Moore has seen the worst side of humanity—the vilest acts one person can commit against another. She is a fiercely dedicated children’s advocate and a devoted mother and wife. But one blistering summer day, a simple moment of distraction will have repercussions that Ellen could never have imagined, threatening to shatter everything she holds dear, and trapping her between the gears of the system she works for.

Meanwhile, ten-year-old Jenny Briard has been living with her well-meaning but irresponsible father since her mother left them, sleeping on friends’ couches and moving in and out of cheap motels. When Jenny suddenly finds herself on her own, she is forced to survive with nothing but a few dollars and her street smarts. The last thing she wants is a social worker, but when Ellen’s and Jenny’s lives collide, little do they know just how much they can help one another.

A powerful and emotionally charged tale about motherhood and justice, Little Mercies is a searing portrait of the tenuous grasp we have on the things we love the most, and of the ties that unexpectedly bring us together.

A Peek At Jarrett Holt

Jarrett Holt, the hero from my newest release MERCY, has a bit of a control problem. Take a look:

jarrett3

Calling on his formidable will, he brought the shields crashing down again, careful to drain any show of interest from his face. With a thin-lipped frown back in place and the mental reel of her past treachery playing in his head, his control clicked together like a series of lock tumblers.

MERCY is here!

It’s release day for my first erotic romance from Berkley Heat – MERCY. A reclusive millionaire with a dark past. A burned CIA agent for a heroine. A second chase at romance by two broken people with fractured trust and potential danger lurking nearby.

I’ve said this before but I’m going to give the warning again: this one is hot and more graphic than many of my other books. If swearing and sex in books and a male/male secondary romance upset you, this might not be the one for you. Just putting it out there.

Mercy

After she infiltrated his business and betrayed his trust, a disavowed CIA agent must seek sanctuary in the bedroom of a man who will either help her, kill her, or bring her to her knees… Becca Ford is on her own. Eight months after she headed up a sting operation to take down millionaire club owner Jarrett Holt, the other agents in her special ops team have been eliminated under odd circumstances, and she needs a place to hide.

Jarrett is a man who prefers darkness to light. He deals in the only truly valuable currency—information—and his supper club caters to an exclusive clientele. It was an uncharacteristic moment of weakness when he let a woman into his life. But it’s not luck that the criminal charges disappeared . . . as did the evidence.

“Dimon’s latest is perfect for readers who appreciate intense intrigue and very erotic romance…” -Publishers Weekly

“Hot and bold in a hard-shell–over-a–soft-center kind of way that romance fans will find sexy, fun and satisfying.” -Kirkus

“Dimon pulls off a rare balancing act, successfully blending a taut, intriguing caper with a searing, unsettling and profoundly compelling romance.” -RT Book Reviews

“An engaging read that you won’t want to put down.” -Heroes & Heartbreakers

You can buy the book in print or digital. Here are some retail locations:
