Vince: A Marine Romance

She has a rule. 

He has two problems. 

But can one night lead to forever?

Emma - I've sworn never to date another man in the military. It's non-negotiable. Not only was I burned, but my mom, too.

Except the hot Marine I had a one-night stand with just popped back into my life as the EOD tech I'm working with.


Especially since Vince in real life is even more irresistible than the sexy stranger at the wedding.

Too bad it won't work. It can't.

But maybe my fling with a Marine can turn into friends with benefits this second time around?


Vince - Before my holiday break home in Newport, I'll be spending time with Emma--the hot caterer I had one amazing night with at my brother's wedding.

She's full of contradictions. And I can't resist a puzzle. Or a beautiful woman I have chemistry with. I won't be here for long, so we can't enjoy ourselves for a little while?

Only two problems:

  • I’m only around for the holidays.
  • She wants nothing to do with the military.

But when someone breaks into her apartment, my interest in her grows. I need to ensure she's safe.

Can I protect Emma while shielding both of our hearts? Or will we end up casualties in the explosion?

Angelo: A Second Chance SEAL Romance

A Navy SEAL on leave. A neuroscientist in danger.

And one dance that tangles their fate.

Catherine: A stranger has been warning me about my research for the government. My coworkers tell me not to worry, but it bothers me. I can’t let it show, though. This is my first time as a project lead. At least, a weekend wedding in Newport promises a much needed escape.

But when I come face to face with Angelo DeMarchis, that illusion shatters.

He’s the one who got away.

And he’s grown even sexier after all these years.

That’s when I realize I’m in even more trouble.

And once again, the price might be my heart.

Angelo: I’ve needed this leave for a long time, but the memories haunt me no matter where I go.

Even at a wedding–a happy occasion–where I run into a woman from my past.

Catherine has become even hotter since high school. I wouldn’t mind spending every minute I’m home with her.

There’s only one problem.

Her research has gotten her into trouble.

She downplays the warnings, but I’m not buying it.

I have ten days to make sure she’s safe.

She’s mine and I won’t let anyone get to her.

This time I’m playing for keeps.

>> Captivated by the Gargoyle


What troubled the brunette? An instinct to protect her kicked in. The pull toward her was compelling, a sensual onslaught that overpowered him.

Remember why you're here.

Roman stepped back, both mentally and physically separating himself from the woman, and shielded himself behind the bar. That compulsion was one he'd never experienced, and not knowing what it meant bothered him all the more. All the uncertainty about tonight had him on edge.

Turning away, he gulped in the cool night air. It invigorated him for only a moment. What hit him next almost knocked him off his feet--a sudden whoosh of energy. It blasted past him with immense force and power, indicative of dark magic.

A gut feeling made him turn to locate the brunette, and he scrutinized her. He sensed something unusual about her than the other humans on the roof. Was she the source of that dark magic? He opened a mental link to communicate with Arto.


There's a woman on the roof I'm going to keep an eye on.

Is she in danger? Or is she dangerous? Arto asked.
Good question. That's what I plan on finding out.

SCORCH (an incubus vs succubus demon romance)

It's every demon for herself.

After I escape hunters and arrive in good Ol' Witch City, Salem, Massachusetts, I head to a gothic club to feed. But, the dumb-as-rock gargoyle bouncers kick me out. They've confused my scent with another demon's.

But, I thought I was the last of my kind.

Not good. We can't both hunt in the same territory, especially with his dangerous cavalier style. I track the incubus, but when I find him, Daron's irresistibly devilish nature makes me rethink my plan. For just one night...

Will he want to play? Or consider me prey?

One night. One encounter. It won't change anything, right?

Only it does, and it's catastrophic. We've accidentally bonded.

Which means I crave him. Only him. And all the time. A sucky curse for a succubus.

How can we undo the damage without succumbing to the call--or worse, starving?

“How dare you speak of me like that?”

Lucan stopped and turned at the sound of Veronique’s furious accusation. She strode out of the forest, eyed red-rimmed and burning with fury.

His pulse quickened. What had she heard?

“Veronique, what are you doing here?” He spoke in the calmest voice he could muster.

Danton and Mattias mumbled in low tones behind Lucan. Mattias muttered something like, Looks like somebody’s in trouble.

She strode toward Lucan with quick steps that made the fabric of her dark emerald dress rustle. “You think this was all a joke?” She waved her hand in a circular motion. “Some fun and games until you got tired and decided to go in search of a new toy?”

“No, of course not.” He opened his arms wide, turning his palms up.

“What now—you’re bragging to your brothers of your latest conquest?” She spat.

“Before you go off to find a new one.”


“You misunderstand,” Lucan attempted to placate her.
“Come now, Veronique, and let’s talk.” That was another problem. What could he say that he hadn’t said several times already?

“I’ve heard enough of your words. Lies.” She pointed at his chest.

“It’s not like that at all,” Danton added from behind Lucan.

“Back off!” She snapped at Danton. She turned back to Lucan and curled her fingers in. “I can silence your lies.”

“Hold up,” Mattias countered with a raise of his hand.

Gray smoke funneled from her fingers, followed by fiery sparks. It quickly swelled and swirled out like a charcoal tornado etched with streaks of fire. She hurled the growing mass at Lucan before he could even protest or try to block the magic.

  • Pursued: A Blood Courtesans Romance

It was only meant to be three nights…

After watching my mother die, becoming a Blood Courtesan is key to my future in medicine. With loans racking up, all I have to do is pretend I want the money for tuition, and I’m hired. No one can know the real reason for wanting this job.

But it isn’t as easy as it first seems. On my first night as a courtesan at a ball in Salem, I meet vampires for the first time—and flee.

Vampires are not easily dissuaded. And one in particular, Renato, offers me a proposal I find difficult to resist. He has a dark, smoldering appeal that lures me in. Plus, I might gain the insight I seek.

I’m supposed to provide a service and will be paid well for it. But my feelings complicate our arrangement—and endanger my life.

It was only meant to be three nights, but can I walk away now?

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans…where vampires are real and blood is a commodity.

It’s not supposed to be about love…until it is.

“You’d be a courtesan. Offering a service that includes a precious commodity. Your blood. Your essence.”

Part of what drew me to this role was my fascination with blood, but I wouldn’t dare admit that to her. Some might call by obsession macabre. Let them think what they wanted. I had my reasons. They wouldn’t understand why unless they’d gone through what I had with my mother. If I could gain any insight as a courtesan to prevent what’d happened to her to anyone else—so be it.

A few hours with a vampire might stave off years of suffering.

So, they could suck it.

Inwardly, I groaned. Considering who the clients were, that’s exactly what they’d be eager to do—suck.

“As a courtesan, you’ll offer more than your blood and your body,” she continued. “Some of these vampires have been around for decades, others centuries. They’re bored. Think how disinterested you’d be living out your existence for eternity.”


I considered it. Hopefully, immortality would not include endless required reading, exams, and essays—part of my everyday life.

“Consider yourself an entertainer as well. A distraction to the monotony.”

I nodded. “Okay.”

She raised her index finger. “But, don’t get any foolish romantic ideas of anything more. I see so many young courtesans falling for a vampire, thinking he will take her away for a happily ever after, and then crumbling when they realize they’re no more special than the girl before or after her.”

That would not be a problem with me. As far as I saw this gig, it was a means to get what I needed—not the road to romance. “Understood.”

5* Review of Dark Stranger from Books and Beyond Fifty Shades! – “I have read the first 2 books in this series and could not wait to get my hands on this one; and I was not disappointed. The thing I love most, is that while this is a story about paranormal creatures, you can still relate to the trial and tribulations that they go through. You can relate to how each character is feeling, even though you are nothing like them.”

Long and Short Reviews! – “This book is the third in this series and once again Lisa Carlisle has shown how so much can be put into so few pages. The characters from the previous book appear but the story revolves around Cameron and Nadya. Emotions, confusion, hot sexy scenes are all included and it was nice to have Nadya as the shifter rather than another male paranormal.”
