TRUSTED HEARTS Released, Plus a Surprise Christmas Novella

 Book 4 in the WILD HEARTS ROMANCE series is now available. TRUSTED HEARTS is a Cinderella/billionaire story...with GIRAFFES. It's not all fairy tale, though, as there are some tears, so be prepared. As always, however, there's an HEA waiting at the end.

And with Christmas just around the corner, what better way to relax from the holiday bustle than with a feel-good novella? The heat level is dialed down low in HOLIDAY HEARTS, making it an easy story to take on the road for a quick, romantic read. It takes place on Mount Kenya, but see if you can spot all the nods to a traditional holiday Easter egged inside.

Oh, and as for the novella being a surprise? I think I was more surprised about having it ready for the Christmas season than anyone! 

And finally, be looking soon for the novella to be bundled up with Books 1 and 2 in a discounted box set for the holidays. It'll be titled WILD HEARTS.



TRUSTED HEARTS

Kim Nichols trusted the wrong man to give her heart to. Now she's in South Africa on a two-month sabbatical to forget the ex who cheated on her. But deplorable conditions at a local zoo—and the plight of one giraffe in particular—spur her to track down the owner and advocate for the animals.

Billionaire Brent Sher has invested in several animal-related businesses, including a zoo and a safari lodge, whose day-to-day runnings are managed by Jabu Amahle, his trusted right-hand man. Vexed by the accusations made by one very outraged teacher from the States, Brent invites the strong-minded beauty to assist him in a hands-on undercover investigation.

A growing trail of company abuses points to widespread corruption by Jabu. As Kim and Brent gather evidence and the net tightens, a desperate Jabu resorts to a chilling act that puts Kim's giraffe, the zoo, and the couple themselves in imminent danger.

To survive, Kim and Brent must not only work together but put aside past betrayals, open their hearts, and learn to trust again.





HOLIDAY HEARTS

Twelve years ago, mountain climbers Sharon Conner and Maxime Rousseau had a fling on the slopes of Kilimanjaro. Since then, no other partners have quite measured up.

Now, two climb teams, led by guides in a friendly race to summit Mount Kenya by Christmas Day, stumble across a bongo caught in a poacher’s trap. Only two climbers are willing to stop and help the large, striped African antelope – Sharon and Max, meeting again for the first time since Kilimanjaro.

As old feelings rekindle, more than just their Christmas spirit is tested on the mountain. With a violent storm rushing in on Christmas Eve and no help to be had from officials or wildlife agencies short-staffed by the season, Sharon and Max soon realize it’s up to them alone to save the injured, tall-horned bull they name Noel.

But can they pull off one more Christmas miracle — and rescue each other too?

Book 3 in the WILD HEARTS ROMANCES series is available now


NOBLE HEARTS, Book 3, is all about nurturing and protecting. It's a story to appeal to the Mother in all of us. Plus a young okapi (see the trio of okapis on the cover if you don't know what one looks like), a baby rhino and a toddler mountain gorilla to tug your heartstrings.

Book 4, TRUSTED HEARTS, is now available for pre-order, with a release date scheduled for early October. Catch a preview of the cover and blurb below. Plus, giraffe! 


NOBLE HEARTS

Kayla has always been a sucker for strays—baby gorillas, okapis, even rhinos—so when an American doctor shows up wounded at her door, with a story of being pressed into service as medic to a local militia unit, Mark LeSabre is just another stray to be taken in and taken care of.

Then Ushindi's controversial election tips the tiny nation into civil war, and Kayla's beloved ancestral coffee plantation becomes a casualty of the escalating conflict. Forced to flee, Kayla's determined not to leave any of her workers—or her strays—behind, including Mark, who's found his way into her heart...and her bed.

But a rich American doctor is too valuable a prize to let escape. Thwarted at every border access, with the militia hot on their tail, Kayla and Mark's only option for freedom is to brave a treacherous jungle route across the Mountains of the Moon. Alone, they might make it to Uganda and safety, but their ragtag group of strays will surely perish if they're abandoned.

How far will Mark and Kayla risk their lives—and their hearts—in the service of love?

PROUD HEARTS

With the grant money needed to continue her video journalism work with a pride of Zambian lions fast running out, Deidre (Dee) Young reluctantly signs a contract to help create a "Living With Lions" episode for the popular "Living With..." reality TV show.

Star and Hollywood idol Chris Corsair is just as arrogant and self-absorbed as Dee feared he would be. That is, until an accident forces Dee and Chris to rescue one of the pride's cubs, and Chris  proves to be more than just a pretty face with a rock-hard body play-acting the hero.

But even as Chris and Dee burn up the hot nights with their new-found passion, a hunter arrives on scene determined to stop at nothing—even murder in the isolated African bush—to take home the head of Brutus, the alpha lion of Dee's beloved pride.

To save Brutus and themselves, they'll have to trust to their lions, each other, and the strength of a love that threatens to tame them all.

Valentine's Day 2016 will be a time of NEWs

NEW PEN NAME

My historical PNR menage books will be relaunched under a new author name to make it more apparent what kind of content readers are getting. If you're looking for super-sexy MFM, MMF, MM and MF reads, you'll soon find these titles under my new REGINA WOLFE name. 

Titles published under the PHOENIX SULLIVAN name will be (steamy) contemporary romances, thrillers and other works (possibly even more Vet Tech Tales!), usually themed around animals.

NEW BRANDING

I'll be working on making the name split on Facebook, this website, and my newsletter over the next couple of weeks. Focus will be on the Phoenix name, while Regina will get a separate tab here on the website.

NEW SERIES

I'm excited to announce my brand-new WILD HEARTS romance series. Three standalone novels, all set in Africa, are currently planned, with Book 1, BRAVE HEARTS, set to release Feb 14. Elephants, tears and a HEA isn't giving too much away. Book 2, PROUD HEARTS, will go on preorder at the same time, with a planned release in late March. Plus, a special project around Brave Hearts will happen March 1. More about that later...
