Donna Fasano's book are always worth a read. Nanny and the Professor

Professor Joshua Kingston thought he'd found the perfect nanny for his son. But once Cassie Simmons stepped into his life, she turned it upside down! His son no longer played by the rules - and Cassie kept making up new ones. He would fire her - if he didn't find her so utterly enticing.

Cassie had a huge secret to hide, and she couldn't afford to lose her new job. But her handsome employer wasn't making things easy. All those silly rules. How was an eight-year-old boy supposed to have any fun? The professor definitely needed a lesson in laughter - and love!

I also have a couple of romances available too.

A Time To Heal

Family Liaison Officer, Chloe Fullerton is helping hero pilot, Captain Steve Ewing, recuperate from injury after he landed his stricken plane, avoiding a major disaster.
Chloe's sworn off love ever since she lost the love of her life. But the spark between her and Steve makes her feel she may yet love again. There's turbulence ahead though--Steve's ex-wife is determined to wreck his and Chloe's blossoming relationship.

and A Time for Change

Based on a TRUE story.

Danielle Pires's life is going well. She has a boyfriend who wants to marry her and is building a reputation as a talented and hard-working interior designer. Keen to expand her portfolio, Danielle is delighted by a request to breathe life back into the Victorian Mansion that handsome Scott Jordache is renovating.
Her parents, meanwhile, have organised a surprise Caribbean cruise to give her a much-needed break.

Danielle sets sail only to discover Scott aboard the same ship, but mysteriously travelling under a pseudonym. Intrigued, she feels torn between mistrust and being drawn in by his charm.

Should she let herself fall for Scott or return to the security of the man she left at home?

Hello,
When Morning Comes: A Family Affair Novel by Francis Ray

Dr. Cade Mathis learned early that he was not the son of the man who raised him. His adoptive father, a cruel, bitter man had always been quick to tell him that he was a bastard and an embarrassment to the rich society family whose daughter got pregnant with him. So when Cade received a full scholarship to college, he was only too happy to leave the only home he had ever known behind and never looked back.

Now a successful doctor and one of the best neurosurgeons in the state, the only thing he still wants are answers about where he came from. What he doesn't expect to find is Sabrina Thomas, the new patient advocate at his hospital or how this woman will lead him to the family he has been searching for and a love he never expected to find.

Thank you

Damned by greedy Emperor Azmyth and his weak heir, Prince Len, the Imperial Capital of Ay is winked out in one terrible moment by the mysterious Dark Destruction.

Caught in arrogant, naive Len¡¯s web, Kai seeks to disentangle his master out of an impending sticky mess, his only reward being his blossoming romance with Princess Anna. However, having been badly wounded by the herald of the Dark Destruction, even the incredibly accomplished Kai falls victim to circumstance.

A desperate, but doomed quest to save the Empire leads across land, sea and ice, into Enemy-occupied territory, but as the unfathomable Dark Destruction continues to ravage the realm, there may not be an Empire remaining for anyone to claim¡¦

Nicky's Fire Thanks for this link. I wrote Nicky's Fire back in 1994 and was recently able to publish it on Amazon. Two DEA agents work together on a biker/drugs case and fireworks fly as their attraction to each other grows stronger. But when the unforseen happens, Chloe is forced to look not only into Nicky's soul, but her own. (588 reviews on Apple, still 4.5 stars...I'm very fortunate!) Download a sample on Amazon.

The Black Book is a unconventional romance between a rigid businessman, an uptight fiancee ready for the finer things in life, and a mysterious woman he just met on the train. It uses emotions to discuss dreams, desire, ambition, mixed bold characters which makes this a must read. It's free if you have Amazon Prime and is worth the read!!! It's a 6 chapter preview and I promise you after reading you will be HOOKED!

What befalls a rising neurosurgeon? Doctor Danny's OR nurse is not what she seems!

Here's the Indie Book of the Day review (verdict) from 6/26 for
Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know ... who's in the OR -

"Author Barbara Ebel creatively uses medical facts by deeply embedding them into the storyline and at the same time keeping the readers hooked. Operation Neurosurgeon stars a character whose single mistake can cost him a career but everything is not over yet, or is it? Barbara Ebel has managed to keep the suspense & mystery alive, till the very end. An enjoyable read & recommended for those who prefer detailed descriptions with logical plot progression."

Another romance I can recommend is Second Chances

Kadi Crowe has spent her entire life believing in her father's innocence, even after he's served his 20 year sentence. But when another young girl is discovered brutally murdered shortly after his release, her father is the prime suspect. She knows he's innocent, but can she prove it?

Dain McKnight waited for the day when he could finally wield his own brand of justice on the man who was convicted of murdering his sister, 20 years ealier. It will be the only justice befitting a cold-blooded killer.

Then a chance meeting with Kadi slowly begins to sow the seeds of doubt in his mind. But, is Dain's growing feelings for Kadi stronger than his hatred for her father? Or will his disdain deny any of them the hope of second chances?

Off the Ice - $2.99 at the Kindle store.
No one every said how close to keep your enemies.....

Sports writer Jake Riley loves her job as a columnist in sunny South Beach. Moving to snowy Aspen to do PR for a hockey team wasn't something she ever planned, especially knowing it meant working with hockey's most conceited player.
Nick Melky hates know-it-all sports writers. Jake Riley tops that list. What Nick doesn't understand is how Jake is going to do PR for a team when there's such an obvious dislike for its star player.
What neither Jake or Nick considered was there are worse things than disliking each other.

Thank you for your interest,
Lori Staley

Metal Urge: My debut rock n' roll romance novel.
The book page offers "Look Inside" and "download a sample" for those who just want to test the water.

The majestic City of London seems the perfect place for college student, Deanna Darmody to escape her painful past. Eager to break free of her devoutly religious parent's suffocating hold; she jumps at the chance to take part in a work study program in England. She is determined to become independent and to achieve success in her chosen field of study. But more than that, she is intent on shedding the hurtful image of a shy, unpopular girl teased and bullied by her schoolmates.

Accompanied by her old high school friend and fellow student, Maggi Atwell, the two girls settle into a small flat in the weathered but charming borough of Kentish Town in Northwest London, excited to begin their new lives. It soon becomes apparent that they are polar opposites in every way imaginable. Beautiful, gregarious Maggi quickly tires of Deanna's reserved, bookish nature and their friendship begins to unravel.

Desperate to mend the growing rift between them, Deanna reluctantly joins Maggi in her relentless hunt to track down the most shrill, uncouth rock bands London has to offer. Crammed into an over-crowded Soho pub, enveloped in a dismal funk of stale smoke and bad hygiene, Deanna thinks life couldn't possibly get any worse. But it does when flagrantly loud heavy metal band, Metal Urge, takes the stage and nearly blasts her right out of her chair.

Haunted by the sheer force of the lead singer's voice and his bad-boy leather look, Deanna can't get the vocalist out of her mind. Against her better judgment, she is drawn to him like a moth drawn to a deadly flame. When fate conspires to bring them together and their paths finally cross, they unwittingly trigger a chain of events that ends in unspeakable tragedy and alters their young lives forever.

Thank you for your consideration.
