RELENTLESS Is Now Available!!

Order from Barnes and Noble
Order from Amazon

In this erotic universe, passion knows no rank…

Since the first settlers came through the portals from Earth, fifteen Families have held the rule of the Federated Universes in their hands. There’s never been a better time than now to throw out the old and usher in a new order. Give voice to the unranked. Abbie Haws has spent her life battling the system. A fighter, she’s always been too busy and driven to pay much attention to finding love. But when she’s granted audience with Roman Lyons, the head of House Lyons, who stands for everything she hates, her instant attraction catches Abbie off-guard…

It’s common knowledge that the Known Universe revolves around Ravena—and that Ravena revolves around Roman Lyons, bred to lead since birth. Roman dreads his meeting with a defiant—if stunning—rabble-rouser. But, sometimes, headstrong personalities in the conference room make for hot-and-heavy, guilty trysts in private….

Now, Abbie will show Roman the parts of her world he wouldn’t otherwise get to see. And he’ll give her a glimpse of the Families’ age old tradition and unleash a sexuality he’d never given rein to before.

I hope you all enjoy the book. I do so love this world and I hope to do more in it (just waiiiiiting to hear back, LOL).

Grand prize: A Lauren Dane tote bag with a copy of RELENTLESS, a copy of WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS…AFTER DARK, a tee shirt, a $50 dollar gift certificate to Barnes and Noble and other assorted swag.

From today’s Publisher’s Marketplace:

Lauren Dane’s untitled sequel to the author’s upcoming title, Laid Bare, to Leis Pederson at Berkley Heat, in a nice deal, for publication in January 2010, by Laura Bradford at Bradford Literary Agency.


Coming August 4 from Berkley Heat

Unexpected Desire…

It’s been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn’t in the cards just yet…

Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin’s past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd’s best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed—and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name. As the passion they share transforms Erin, will it be enough to help her face the evil she thought she had left behind?
