On the shelf...
Jessica Pennington's work as an etiquette coach requires her to be polite and proper at all times, especially now that she has a book coming out. The only thing that rattles her reserve is the increasingly violent emails and texts from her persistent stalker. Noah Samuels hates stuck-up, prim people like Jessica. He's more the blunt, straightforward type. But to advance up the ranks at McCormack Security, he has to take the high-profile assignment.
Can these two put their differences aside in time to catch a lethal stalker - before it's too late?
Librarian Maggie Kincaid yearns for excitement—but being accused of espionage is not what she had in mind. Wanted by the police, the FBI and the criminal element, Maggie goes on the run—and runs straight into sexy Luke Fletcher. Unfortunately, when Luke pulls out the handcuffs, it's not because he has something kinky in mind...
Devastated by Luke's inability to trust her, Maggie runs again. She's determined to clear her name, and if that means tracking down a notorious spy even Interpol can't seem to locate, then that's exactly what she'll do...
Recuperating from a skateboarding accident, Indie has discovered that spying on neighbours with a telescope is a good way to pass the time - until she witnesses a violent act. Now her sexy neighbour is the only thing standing between her and ruthless thugs determined to keep their secret...
Okay - who's written out their 2014 goals? You haven't? Did you know that those who write their goals are more likely to actually achieve those goals than those who don't, so get a piece of paper and start scribbling. If you're looking for a how-to guide on writing S.M.A.R.T. goals, check out my article here.
Otherwise, I'm gearing up for a bumper month. Here in Oz, summer really starts to sizzle. From the poolside BBQ to picnics at water parks and beaches, it's the outdoor activities that really heat up. Beach cricket, and water pistols at dawn...
And then we have a project that I'm so very proud to be a part of: The Bold and The Beautiful novellas! Keep an eye out for my novel, Collision Course (available for pre-order at Amazon), and for my fellow author, Amy Andrews' book, A Forbidden Affair (also available for pre-order with Amazon).
In the meantime, if you're hot in the sun, relax with a good book and chilled wine - and for my friends in the Northern Hemisphere, curl up in front of the fire with a good book and a mulled wine (hm, there seems to be a recurring theme here!)
Take care, be kind to one another - and keep reading!

Check out how the story unfolded...
Once Upon a Crime…
Melanie wants to get incriminating information on her evil stepfather and she’ll get it – even if it means giving in to an odious toad’s demands. Cole is undercover, and when the opportunity arises for him to get closer to the criminal he’s investigating using the man’s beautiful stepdaughter, he grabs it.
Esmerelda is a Fairy Godmother Enforcer with a partner, and Rumpelstiltskin – with his sexy bad boy swagger – has a hidden agenda of his own.
Shannon is honoured to be judging in the 2013 Orange Rose Contest for the Orange County Chapter RWA.
FOR HER EYES ONLY
Ryan Brennan has worked plenty of jobs for the McCormack Security Agency, so going undercover at a couples resort to identify a pair of killers should be easy. Except his assigned partner—uh, "wife"—is Vicky Hastings.
Finally out from behind her desk, Vicky can't wait to prove herself in the field. But with Ryan? Working together while sharing close quarters certainly isn't making it easy for her to stop thinking about him.
The two have to work together to wrap up this case fast, before more than hearts get broken.
In a bold and innovative move, Pan Macmillan and Momentum have teamed up with the most popular daytime TV soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, to produce a series of novellas based on the characters we all know and love. You'll have to wait until February, though, for the first two titles: Forbidden Affair by Amy Andrews and COLLISION COURSE, BY SHANNON CURTIS!
