Belle owes Rafiq so much. How can she deny him this sham marriage that will keep the peace in his fledgling island democracy?

They’re from different worlds. She’s a dedicated archaeologist from an ordinary family. He’s descended from a line of autocratic adventurers and buccaneers. Is their marriage simply a political necessity or a passionate destiny?

Item 65 - Book from Kate Douglas (3 of 3)

Kate Douglas has offered a copy of her latest release Wolf Tales 11, published December 2010. The item will be available to view at the auction.

The Chanku have been threatened in the past, but never like this–Lisa and Tala, both in the final stages of pregnancy, become pawns in a terrible plot to assassinate the president of the United States.  Anton has a plan, but it requires a sacrifice even the wizard hadn’t intended to make.

“…Douglas, a master of human and lupine sex scenes, completely outdoes herself in this latest Chanku clan tale. Even with a chart at the beginning of the book, newcomers to the series are bound to be confused by all the characters, but the story is so thrilling and the sex is so hot and varied that it really doesn’t matter.”

But the deepest, darkest betrayal did. Her sister claimed she was expecting Leandro’s baby. So Millie ran away, distraught. The designer dresses had clearly never hidden how unsuitable and unglamorous she truly was.

Now, though, Leandro’s powerful voice is demanding that his wife come home. And, to her shame, she’s willing….

But it’s a night that has lasting consequences!

Marcia James has offered a copy of her ebook At Her Command. This item will be sent to the winning bidder.

DEA agent Domino Petracelli is chasing a career-making promotion and nothing will keep her from getting her man. Okay, so she’d rather infiltrate a Columbian drug cartel than go undercover as a dominatrix at D.C.’s Xecutive Branch sex club. But she’s up to the task. As the leather-clad Mistress Bella, Domino investigates the club’s drug ring while juggling a surreal roster of kinky submissives—and resisting one sexy client who’s not what he seems.

Police detective Dalton Cutter is a man with a mission—avenging his partner, who was murdered investigating the Xecutive Branch. Retracing his partner’s steps, he goes undercover as a club client. Dalton’s handled killers, junkies and pimps, but can the Alpha-male cop act submissive long enough to fool Mistress Bella? And will their sexual chemistry, crackling louder than Bella’s whip, derail Dalton’s investigation?

This romantic suspense pokes fun at the alphabet soup of D.C. law enforcement agencies, famous for their lack of interdepartmental cooperation. Imagine what could happen if several agencies unknowingly put operatives undercover at the same location—let the sparks fly!

Item 71 – Book bundle from Rachel Caine

Rachel Caine has offered a book bundle of Morganville Vampires Omnibus 1 and 2.  The titles are Glass Houses and The Dead Girl’s Dance in one book and Midnight Alley and Feast of Fools in the other.  Both books are signed.  The bundle will also include a Ghost Town lenticular bookmark, 2 Morganville faux tattoos, 1 Morganville resident card with a vinyl resident card holder lanyard, and Rachel’s business card. This item will be available for viewing at the auction.

Glass Houses

College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation, where the popular girls never let her forget just where she ranks in the school’s social scene: somewhere less than zero.
When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don’t show many signs of life. But they’ll have Claire’s back when the town’s deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.

The Dead Girl’s Dance

Claire Danvers has had her share of challenges – like being a genius in a school that favours beauty over brains, dealing with the homicidal girls in her dorm and, above all, finding out that her college town is overrun with bloodsucking fiends. On the plus side, so far Claire and her friends have managed to survive getting on the wrong side of some Morganville VIP’s – Vampire Important Persons. But their temporary peace is in danger of collapsing, thanks to the arrival of her new boyfriend’s scary father and his vampire-fighting supporters.

Midnight Alley

Claire Danvers’s college town may be run by vampires but a truce between the living and the dead made things relatively safe. For a while. Now people are turning up dead, a psycho is stalking her, and an ancient bloodsucker has proposed private mentoring. To what end, Claire will find out. And it’s giving night school a whole new meaning.

Feast of Fools

In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, though—especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town’s living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It’s only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the elaborately evil trap he’s set for Morganville.

Item 72 – Book bundle from Nicole Murphy

Nicole Murphy has offered the three books in her Dream of Asarlai series. All three books will be signed. The titles are Secret Ones, Power Unbound and Rogue Gadda. Rogue Gadda is not released until July but Nicole will mail this book to you as soon as she has received her copy. So you will be one of the first to own the entire trilogy. Two of the books will be available for viewing at the auction.

The Dream of Asarlai is an urban fantasy trilogy being published in Australia by HarperVoyager. Secret Ones was released in July 2010 and Power Unbound is out now. The third book, Rogue Gadda, will be out in July 2011.

The trilogy is set in the world of the gadda, which is really our world. However, the gadda aren’t human – they’ve descended from different ancestors and as a result, have access to the power of the world around them and can use it to perform what we humans call magic.

They look human. They act human. They live ostensibly human lives. But they are also beholden to the council of the gadda, the bardria, and the rules of the gadda which are policed by the six guardians – Sabhamir, Heasimir, Garramir, Firimir, Coiremir and Ceamir.

The gadda are based in the Irish town of Sclossin, in the county of Leitrim.

The most paramount thing in the life of any gadda is keeping their true identity secret from humans – being known would just be too difficult and dangerous, for gadda and humans alike.

For centuries, this has been the case. However, Asarlai has a dream – she can’t see why the gadda, with the power they can wield, aren’t rulers of the world …

He arrives on his motorbike with his dog, Rasputin, bringing supplies. He climbs the tallest tree on the crest of the hill, and locates an area of green down along the coast, hundreds of miles away. The three pile onto the bike, with Marcus and Rasputin in the sidecar, and embark on a trip that will take them over mountainous terrain with a limited supply of food and water. What might they find if they reach the coast? Will other people have survived the devastation? And who bombed their country? No one seems to know.

Beka Cooper is a rookie with the law-enforcing Provost’s Guard, and she’s been assigned to the Lower City. It’s a tough beat that’s about to get tougher, as Beka’s limited ability to communicate with the dead clues her in to an underworld conspiracy.

Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming banking clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won’t let anything–or anyone–jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won’t be enough for Beka be her usual “terrier” self. She’ll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals–to be a Bloodhound …
