It’s release day for MINE!!!! This is a super sexy erotic romance. Very hot and very emotional. There’s a hint of suspense, but only a hint. But if you like the idea a brooding sniper-turned-bodyguard hero, a smart former CIA heroine who doesn’t think she needs a bodyguard, some family drama and a trapped-in-a-snowy-cabin setting, this is for you!

“Mine is one of the best books I’ve read this year, and honestly might be the best book.” -Heroes and Heartbreakers

She doesn’t depend on anyone for anything. He intends to make her his completely.

Natalie Udall thought her position at the CIA was secure—until protecting her team earned her an armed escort into certain danger. Natalie can’t stand the idea of being secreted away in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, especially since it means sharing close quarters with the controlling bodyguard enlisted to keep her alive.

Gabe MacIntosh joined the military to support his son, trained as a sniper and dealt with death on a regular basis. Now retired and operating a security firm, his first assignment is to protect a CIA agent on the run. She’s strong willed and difficult—and all Gabe can think about is exerting his domination and stripping her of every expectation she has.

Natalie has no intention of giving in to Gabe’s straightforward demands of dominant sex with no attachments—even though the very idea of giving up control thrills her like nothing ever has…

This one is available in print or ebook. You can get it wherever you grab your books, or try at:

FACING FIRE is officially out!!  A hero out for revenge. A heroine seeking answers to her mother’s murder. A madman who wants the Alliance destroyed. All three meet in a battle for survival that moves from France to Spain, leaving no one safe as Josiah and Sutton realize they have to work together if they hope to find answers and eliminate the looming threat.

When his uncle is brutally murdered, Josiah King knows that business just got personal. His uncle’s ties to the Alliance can mean only one thing: Josiah and his black ops team are targets, along with everyone they love. Primed for vengeance, Josiah is determined to unravel the plot–until long-legged redhead Sutton Dahl becomes a dangerous distraction.

Sutton is very good at uncovering other people’s secrets—and protecting her own. When Josiah bursts into her life she’s torn between pushing him away and asking for his help. Mysterious, strong, and much too sexy, he’s a puzzle she longs to solve, and a temptation she can’t ignore.

Thrown together in the face of Alliance’s most lethal threat, Josiah and Sutton become unlikely partners, fighting for their lives even as the attraction between them flares into real passion. Torn between his team and the woman who means everything to him, Josiah will risk it all to save Sutton, even if that decision is his last.

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

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.

A New Intrigue!

Today is release day for the print version of SHELTERED, one of my Corcoran Team: Bulletproof Bachelors books. Wahoo!!!!!

CORNERED, SHELTERED and August’s TAMED are the last three books in the Corcoran Team series. I am really sad to see the series end because I loved writing these guys. Each story stands alone, but they are connected by characters. The men are all part of the same team and alpha and tough but melt a bit inside when they meet the right women.


She’d always preferred handling things on her own. Until a sexy undercover agent stepped in to protect her.

Strong and silent Holt Kingston has one mission: to infiltrate a dangerous cult with more firepower than faith. But when the compound’s ruthless leader has a gorgeous former member in his sights, single-minded Holt won’t rest until the mesmerizing Lindsey Pike is safe.

After living undercover for years helping others flee, Lindsey isn’t used to someone else calling the shots. Not even someone as capable and captivating as Holt. But now someone knows she’s back—and wants her captured. Maybe even killed. As the cult slowly closes in on them, Lindsey can no longer hide how much Holt’s protection soothes her peace of mind. And heals her wounded heart.

You can buy a print copy of SHELTERED at most Targets and Walmarts, some grocery stores, and bookstores like Amazon and B&N. Here are just two sites for you to check out Amazon and Barnes & Noble! For those who prefer ebooks, SHELTERED will be out in digital on July 1st. You can go ahead and pre-order now!

An Excerpt!

I thought today might be a good day for a little snippet from FALLING HARD:

falling hard

It would help their communication if West didn’t take her so literally sometimes. “What was with the covert craziness getting here? I told you no one knows about this place.”

His eyebrow lifted. “You’re alive, aren’t you?”

Talk about dramatic. “Was there a possibility I wouldn’t be?”

With a hand on her elbow, he dragged her off the hard-to-see path and closer to the side of the house. “Why the hell did you bring us here?”

“I just told you.” She was not a fan of the manhandling. Or the way he talked to her. “And do not swear at me.”

“You’ve got to be kidding.” His eyes bugged out. “I’ve heard you swear.”

The list of things he did that annoyed her grew with each passing second. She shrugged out of his hold and faced him. “Not at you. And for the record, you’re warning when I first picked you as my bodyguard wasn’t strong enough. You’re more than difficult.”


Release Day!!

Today the second book in my Bad Boys Undercover series – FALLING HARD – comes out. Wahoo!! I’m so excited because I love this book. The hero is one of my favorites. He’s the quiet type. A retired marine now working undercover, he’s the guy the Alliance sends in because he always gets the job done. In this case, the job is retrieving intel from a doctor working at a clinic near the base of K2, the second highest mountain in the world. But when West gets there he finds the doctor’s daughter, Lexi Palmer. She’s hot, chatty and determined. Poor West doesn’t stand a chance…

falling hard

After a grueling assignment with the black ops force known as the Alliance, Weston Brown is craving downtime. Instead, he’s pulled into his deadliest operation, in the one place he never wanted to see again. No-nonsense and so damn hot, Lexi Turner lied to get him to her mountain clinic in Pakistan. But the threat is terrifyingly real.

Lexi has been asking too many questions, drawing the wrong kind of attention. As soon as she lays eyes on West, she can tell he’s quiet—yet tough—and has a rescue complex which will come in handy for going up against the world’s most ruthless gunrunners.

Cut off from the rest of the Alliance, Lexi and West navigate the brutal terrain and a primal sexual attraction. Sticking around has never been West’s way, but now he’ll use every resource to keep Lexi by his side, safe from a killer who leaves no loose ends behind.

Some “buy” links in case you want to grab, you know, 20 or 30 copies…


Upcoming Release

I have two romantic suspense books coming out over the next few weeks. First, let’s talk about FALLING HARD, the second single title in my Bad Boys Undercover series from Avon. Weston Brown is a big, quiet retired Marine. He’s practical and dedicated to the team. He’s the guy they send in to get the job done without any fuss. This time the “job” is to track down Lexi Palmer and get her out of Pakistan. She’s been working in a clinic near the base of K2 and has seen some things she shouldn’t, so it’s safer for her to get out of the country. But Lexi is strong and smart and not really someone West can push around. She’s also a big talker, which drives West nuts. So, basically, they’re perfect for each other.

Here’s a short excerpt to give you a peek into their relationship at the beginning of the books:

falling hard

She blew out a long breath as the stiffness across her shoulders eased. “Thank God you’re here.”

West tagged her as American but definitely not male, which made little sense under the circumstances. But she wasn’t firing at random, so he considered that a bit of good luck.

Still, a potential novice with a weapon was an invitation to get his nuts blown off and he sure as hell didn’t agree to that when he signed the Alliance employment contract. “Ma’am, I need to you put that gun down.”

She blinked a few times before her gaze went to her hands. It was as if she forgot she took the weapon off the dead guy when he dropped it. “Why?”

West chalked the confusion up to chaos of the last few minutes, but shock and bullets rarely mixed well. “I don’t want to be shot.”

Her chin came up as she nodded at him. “That makes two of us, so you lower yours first.”

Okay, chaos or not her attempt to order him around was pretty fucking hot. Kind of brave, too. “No.”

Not dropping his guard, West took a second to study her. Long hair, half in and half out of a ponytail, huge whiskey brown eyes and the sexiest pouty mouth he’d ever seen. He couldn’t make out her frame under the olive pants and oversized long-sleeve tee but he guessed curvy.

Not just pretty but lose-the-ability-to-spell sexy. Of course that could be the gun. Something about a woman holding a weapon turned him on, sick twist that he was.

“I’m not really giving you a choice,” he said, more to stall than anything else.

Josiah moved in, step by small step, as if not to scare or rattle her. Pretty soon two trained men would almost be on top of her and then it was just a matter of time until one of them wrestled the weapon away from her.

And that’s how it would end because there was no way West was heading back home after this and listening to the shit he would get from Bravo team if he let a hot brunette get the jump on him and take a shot. He had a badass shoot-anything reputation to uphold.

“At this distance I can blow your balls off,” she said, looking ready to do just that.

Then again… “Okay, that’s a solid argument.”


New Release!

It’s release day!! Today TAKEN comes out. This is a male/male novella in the Holton Woods erotic romance series. Eli and Wade are tough, ornery, smart and lethal. They’re also dedicated to each other…but their relationship has never run smoothly and that continues in TAKEN.


Known for her “emotional, sexy and smart” stories, now, HelenKay Dimon presents a bold new novella that takes readers to the edge…

Wade Royer and Elijah Sterling are on shaky ground. While initially reluctant Eli is finally ready to take things to the next level, Wade is hesitant. He senses trouble coming and he’s right. Still, they know their fiercely undeniable connection—both in and out of the bedroom—is worth saving.

Then a man from Eli’s past reappears and the CIA comes calling—and they both want Eli back. With their relationship in jeopardy of falling apart and Eli in danger of a different kind, both men will have to decide what they really want—and then take it…

Some review snippets for you:

“Chain of Command is a winner…” – USA Today, Happy Ever After blog


Retired marine Sawyer Cain can’t forget all he’s seen and lost, but he can try to start over. Opening a gun range with his closest friends is the first step toward a new life—one where he finally buries the guilt he can’t seem to shake. So much depends on the property he needs to buy…and the gorgeous but completely frustrating woman who refuses to sell it.

Hailey Thorne is done—with loss and with anything military, after the closest thing she had to an uncle died in Afghanistan. When Sawyer shows up on her porch he has military written all over him. He’s one more in a long line of people who wants the land she inherited, and suddenly he’s everywhere she goes. Hailey can’t get the broad-shouldered, dirty-talking, dead-serious man out of her head. Or her life.

Sawyer’s not above using his skills in the bedroom to try to convince her to sell, and Hailey is more than willing to let him. Their pleasure-only arrangement works…until emotions get in the way. But Sawyer has a secret he’s convinced will have Hailey hating him forever, and Hailey’s not willing to risk loving anyone she could lose.
