Coming January 16, the YA fantasy Full Moon Rising
from debut author T. M. Becker.
A father’s neglect…a brother’s betrayal…
Answers…that’s all Arabella ever wanted. Answers about how to vanquish the recurring nightmares that plague her…or where her mother came from and why she disappeared so many years ago.
To fifteen-year-old Arabella, the answers must lie in the books her mother left behind when she vanished.
But the books are written in an ancient language shrouded in mystery—the language of magic. And in the conquered land of Atruria, magic is forbidden.
Instead of answers, the books offer only more questions—and a death sentence when her brother discovers her secret.
Arabella is resigned to her fate, until the lock on her cell door blasts open one night.
For though magic has been forbidden in Atruria…it has not been forgotten.
Meet the author:
T. M. Becker, called Steph by her friends and family, is the author of the young adult fantasy, Full Moon Rising. Always a fan of second breakfasts, hobbits, and Grimm’s fairytales, she spent her childhood afternoons buried in a book or acting out scenes from her imagination in the woods beside her house. In high school, she discovered a passion for theatre and even began a recording of The Hobbit for her younger siblings, complete with different voices for each character.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and nine children in a log house full of books, soccer gear, and perpetually mismatched socks.
One of her favorite things about writing is how a single image or idea can blossom into an entire series. In her spare time, (what is that?!) she enjoys teaching, cooking, trail running, and watching her sons and daughters play soccer.

Looking for something to read? Here are some of my favorites I have written.
A freezing winter’s night, a hot stranger and a sexy female with erotic plans. One hot Valentine’s Day coming right up.
When Jessie Rawlins’ boyfriend dumps her just before Valentine’s Day, she ends up by herself at her isolated cabin in Maine with all the trappings for the holiday—including a bag of kinky t
oys—and no one to celebrate with. Then a snow storm dumps gorgeous Riley Malone on her front porch. Running from a broken relationship himself as well as a business partnership gone bad, Riley thought his good luck had run out. Until fate—and Cupid—strands him at Jessie’s cabin.
What woman hasn’t fantasized about having a sexy, handsome stranger come out of nowhere and rock her world? When Riley shows up on her doorstep, frozen half to death, Jessie knows exactly how to warm him up. But will Riley want to play along with the games she’d planned for her Valentine’s celebration? A night of hot, erotic, sizzling sex answers that question. But what will happen when the day for lovers is over, the storm is gone and it’s time for him to be on his way? Will he take a piece of Jessie’s heart with him, or will Cupid’s arrow strike them both?
Twenty years ago Dallas Creed and Charley Roper were lovers with their entire future ahead of them. Until they split. Badly. Now he’s a country rock icon who made it to the top, hit bottom but is back at the top of his game. And Charley’s the private security specialist hired to protect him from an unknown killer in stalking mode. Caught up in the bitter wash of memories they begin a roller coaster ride that is suspenseful, emotional and erotic. Is their love strong enough to erase the past and bring them back together before the killer strikes again?
Book one in the Erector Set series – newly edited version!

The first meeting between Josh McMann and Vanessa Bowen is anything but promising. He’s just finished a successful dinner with a client and she’s shrieking that someone’s stolen her brand-new car.

Not a good way to start either a personal or business relationship…One thing leads to another and soon her next collision is an off-the-charts one with Josh in bed. But there’s more than sex at stake here and it will take real commitment to get past the trust issues they both have.

Long ago, and in another life, I spent ten years working with musicians. I have so many memories that time, mostly really good but one sticks in my mind. Read this scene from Downstroke, then close your eyes and visualize it. That scene was the Kickstarter idea for Downstroke, so let’s set the stage:
The night had a magical quality to it, a perfect Texas night with stars blinking against a black velvet sky. A very soft breeze whispered over everything, chasing away the last heat of the day. The sense of expectancy in the outdoor concert facility was nearly palpable. Anticipation fairly zapped through the air like bolts of energy. I could even feel it myself, the kind of feeling you got on Christmas morning when you ran downstairs, or when you were right on the brink of the most outstanding orgasm you’d ever had. Seventy-five hundred people moved restlessly in their seats in front of me. An almost equal number were spread out on the rise of the hill behind me, drinking and staring at the stage with binoculars, even though at the moment there was nothing to see. They were all waiting for the same thing.
The curtain was drawn across the stage, heightening the edge of expectancy. Especially for me, much as I hated to admit it. What was behind there? What was his band like now after they’d tasted success once and were back on top with him again?
I could feel the energy sizzling through the crowd. Well, why not? If nothing else, Dallas Creed had always had an electric presence. Add in the staging, his suck-my-tongue voice, and the electricity of his music and you had a knockout winner.
One moment the stage held only the stool where he’d sit, the next the spotlight hit the man himself, sitting with one booted foot hooked on a rung, his hands ready to do magic with his guitar.
And so the renewed saga of Dallas and Charley begins.throw in a stalker, an unknown killer and the excitement of a touring Downstroke was born. I hope you’ll check it out.

They served their country in every branch of the military—army Delta Force, SEALs, air force, marines. They are pilots, snipers, medics—whatever the job calls for. And now as civilians they serve in other capacities, as private consultants training security for defense contractors, as black-ops combatants eradicating drug dealers, as trained operatives ferreting out traitors. With the women in their lives, each of whom have a unique psychic ability, they are a force to be reckoned with. Risen from the ashes of war, they continue to fight the battle on all fronts.
They are Phoenix.
For Faith and Mark, the telepathic connection they’d shared for years was nothing compared to the scorching physical connection they realized as adults. From the first moment they came together, erotic was too pale a word to describe their relationship. Together they explored each other’s deepest, darkest desires. But now Mark, survivor of an ambush to his Delta Force team, is a prisoner of a terrorist group in the Peruvian jungle, and his telepathic communication with Faith is his only contact with the world. While she searches for help to save him, they survive on dreams that took them beyond all sexual boundaries. Can she persuade the men of Phoenix to undertake a treacherous rescue and bring Mark back to her arms?
Mia Fleming’s precognitive visions about Carpenter Techtronics are so vivid, she resorts to sending anonymous emails to the company. She’s also having visions of a gorgeous man who arouses her to the point she’s satisfying herself just to get some relief. She’s shocked when the man shows up in her office, demanding to know what she knows about Carpenter.
Dan Romeo is just helping his friend track down the person threatening his company when he meets Mia. One look at her and he has a hard time thinking about anything but indulging in off-the-charts sex with the intriguing woman—until bodies begin falling. As Mia’s visions escalate, so does the explosive sex between her and Dan, as well as an unexpected emotional connection. When Mia is almost killed, Dan and his team must race to find the culprits before they can strike again—or put Mia down for good.
Scent of Danger
Kelly Monroe was shocked when her dog, Xena, a Caucasian Ovcharka seemed to bond at once with Rick Latrobe, a partner in the high profile Phoenix Agency. Ovcharkas are known for linking with only their owners. But Xena is picking up Rick’s wave length, very much aware when an attempt is made on Rick’s life, and driving Kelly crazy with signals of danger regarding Rick’s current project, ferrying a shipment of arms to a private security cadre in Iraq. Rick is nearly killed when the shipment is stolen by terrorists who are hot in his trail. Only Kelly and Xena, coached by members of The Lotus Circle to expand the psychic link between the three of them—can keep him safe. As Rick scrambles to learn who’s behind the whole mess, the relationship he and Kelly have deepens. But Xena is the real star, not only signaling when danger is at hand but “sniffing” out the killers.

Seven years ago today J.M. Madden subbed her very first book, to Decadent Publishing. It’s been a wild and wildly successful ride for her since then. Check out this book and leave me a comment congratulating her. I’ll pick ten people to receive a copy of HOT AND DANGEROUS, two stories of hot romantic suspense.
Officer Shane Caldwell responds to a routine end of shift call with some annoyance, but when she tackles and handcuffs her ex-lover and the father of her son, things turn hot in a flash. Four years before, Quinn Scott disappeared to make his fortune, and she hasn’t heard a word from him. As his touch ignites old passions, Shane is torn between telling him about the son he’s never known, and protecting young Jackson’s heart from the man who walked away without a backward glance.
When Shane storms back into his life, Quinn isn’t surprised by the incredible attraction which sparks between them. He wants to take up where they left off, but years of lies and unexpected betrayals from family and friends endanger his Thoroughbred breeding operation and his dreams of a future with the woman he never really left behind.
Will old prejudices separate them again or can love grow stronger the Second Time Around?
