All is fair in love and war…

Raven no longer believes in happily ever after. Her ex-boyfriend, who seemed great at first but turned into an abusive monster, taught her that's a fairytale. Now he's dead, and all Raven wants to do is live her life in peace and raise her daughter.

When Raven meets a man who resembles the monster from her past, she has a panic attack and she realizes that her ex still has a hold over her. Picking herself up, she decides it's the perfect time to get over her fear and conquer her monster. She never imagines that what she thinks will be a one-night stand will change her life forever.

All Guillermo de Castillo wants to do is live up to his responsibilities and get revenge on the woman he believes murdered his brother. He never expected he would begin to have feelings for her, but to give into those would be betraying the memory of his brother, which is something he could never do.

Business magnate Luca Venancio is returning to Rio to pay his respects to his late brother, and to seduce his once fiancée, Daniella, back into his bed. Five years ago she left him without so much as a word, shunning him and the rich life he could offer in exchange for his younger, reckless brother. Now Luca wants revenge—seduce her and dump her, that's all he intends to do.

Blackmailed into a violent farce of a marriage, Daniella had no choice but to comply to protect Luca's life, even though it meant never being able to see him again. Years later, a twist of fate reunites them, throwing her plans of fleeing Rio out of the window and the love of her life straight back in.

Luca's flawless plan soon becomes complicated when he discovers Daniella is expecting his brother's child. It becomes even more complicated when old passions return. Can he actually go through with seducing her, bedding her, and then discarding her?

The First Night – it was short, sizzling, sexy and uber-hot."

Author Spotlight – Kate Richards

1) How long have you been writing for the purpose of publication?
Four years

2) What's the shortest and/or longest amount of time it's ever taken you to complete a book?
My first and very shortest was written in one day. It was just under 7k. The longest…I have a few that need finishing from a couple of years ago.

3) What is your writing schedule like?
Because I am also an editor and co-own an editing company, it's rough, but I try to write at least four days a week.

4) Is there a certain time of the day that you tend to be more creative?
Early morning

5) Where is your favorite place to write?
My favorite place is up in Bishop at our place in the mountains. I like to sit at the kitchen counter with the view of the little pond. It's different every season but always lovely.

6) What type of environment do you prefer when you write? (ie complete silence, background music, etc)
I like music that suits the mood of the scene.

7) Are you plotter or a panser?
I am a plotter whose stories always take on a life of their own and make me a pantser.

8) Is there a genre you enjoy reading, but would not write?
No, if I like the genre, I'd love to write in it.

9) Is there a genre you've never written, but you would like to try writing?
A mystery. And since my mother tells everyone that I will give up the naughty romance biz and write mysteries one day…I probably should give it a shot. Writing a mystery that is, not giving up my beloved naughty romances.

10) What advice would you give to a new writer?
If you love writing, just keep doing it. Don't let anyone or anything stop you!

11) What do you think makes a good story?
A good story takes the reader into a world that hangs on even when they have to pause for real life. A great story hangs on even when it's over and the reader waits and waits for the next opportunity to return there. Those are my favorites.

12) Who are some of your favorite authors?
Tiffany Reisz, Stephanie Beck, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Laurell K. Hamilton, Louisa May Alcott.

13) What are you reading at the moment?
I am reading The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz.

14) What do you do to relax?
Swim, cook, garden…read!

15) What's your favorite way to procrastinate?
I take my Kindle and go for a walk somewhere, that way I get to read and stretch my legs. I wish I could figure out a way to swim laps and read.

16) Chocolate or vanilla, coffee or tea, Coke or Pepsi, dogs or cats, sunrises or sunsets?
Chocolate, Diet Coke with Lime, dogs and cats, sunrises and sunsets.

17) If you could be any animal, what would you be?
Some kind of big jungle cat. Can I be a shifter and have the best of both worlds?

18) If you could time travel where would you go and why/what would you do?
So many choices! I'd like a look at Stonehenge being built. I wouldn't mind being one of Cleopatra's handmaidens and hanging out on the Nile in her barge.

19) Give us some links where we can find you, please.

It's Just Love by Kate Richards
Genre(s): contemporary romance with paranormal elements
Formats: pdf (for Adobe Reader), lit (for Microsoft Reader), mobi (for Mobi and Kindle), epub (for Nook), and html.

Matchmakers sometimes need a little help with their own love lives.

Coral Nixie is living her dream. Her cottage is blocks from her beloved beach and a haven for those seeking answers for their relationship problems. And so what if her own love life is non-existent? Helping others and surfing should be enough for anyone, even a virgin, slightly lonely witch.

Gage Middleton is a successful author and relationship counselor. His "factors" can indicate the success of any relationship, and he's about to propose to his own perfect match. Until Ms. Perfect dumps him and he has to go on TV and defend his theories against a ridiculous hippy witch with the most beautiful eyes he's ever seen.

On a dare from the host, the two set out to follow another couple on their first three dates. Gage and Coral have nothing in common—and neither do the man and woman they follow—but they hadn't counted on their own attraction to each other. Can they let go of their stubborn beliefs and accept that there's nothing to prove? It's Just Love.

Darcy White can't believe she's answering a help wanted ad from someone looking to hire a wife, but she's hit rock bottom and is on the verge of being evicted from her apartment. When she learns that the guy she had a crush on in high school is the one looking to hire, she'd be crazy not to live out her fantasy.

Steven McDonald needs a wife, or at least a fiancée, before his grandfather retires or else he won't inherit the family business. He knows not just any woman will do, and in a desperate attempt to find a solution, he places a help wanted ad in the local paper. The day Darcy White answers it, his dreams begin to come true.

As Darcy and Steven pretend they're engaged, they make a promise to keep things platonic. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to keep their hands off one another. With his grandfather's retirement approaching, and the possible end to their fake engagement, can Steven and Darcy admit their feelings to not only themselves but each other?
