City Nights: One Night in Sydney

Will passion win out over wise business sense in one of

the most beautiful harbor side cities of the world?


They say you often meet the person of your dreams in the most unlikely places and when you least expect it. Abby Devon and Kane Matheson are about to put that theory to the test.

Abigail Devon is all about business, until the dream of keeping her company alive fails and she finds herself seeking distraction in the arms of a tempting stranger she met on the plane. Kane Matheson is a man like no other, and once Abby gives into her attraction to him, passions spark and a night of erotic pleasure begins.

Kane can’t believe his luck when his flight to Sydney places Abby along his path to a fun filled weekend. She’s his kind of woman—business minded, clever, and with curves in all the right places. When he discovers they have more in common than savvy business expertise and undeniable sexual heat, he’s faced with a daunting choice, and left wondering if pleasure can win out over wise business sense in one of the most beautiful harbor side cities of the world.

Have you ever met someone that’s been too tempting to resist? How did it work out? Was it a one-night fling or the start of something great? Buy One Night in Sydney to find out where Abby and Kane’s temptation leads them.

You know, if you like, we could hang out together in the city for a bit, maybe when you’ve finished your busy day.” Kane didn’t look at her this time; speaking from his reclined position, head tilted back against the rest with his eyes closed. “I only have to try on a suit and then I’m done for the day. You could meet me there, let me know if you think I look okay, you know, thumbs up or down, and then we could grab a bite… or something. Whatever takes your fancy, beautiful.”

He raised his lids and angled himself slightly to look at her for the final part of his statement, the wicked expression and cheeky glint in his eyes giving Abby the distinct impression he hoped that he’d be the something that took her fancy. He did. But it couldn’t happen.

Abby didn’t believe in love at first sight, but she did believe in lust at first sight and Kane ticked all her boxes. Feeling breathless, hardened nipples, feeling flushed when they touched, and that increasing ache between her legs. Luckily the flight was a short one, so she’d be able to escape him soon enough. In her party days they probably would have been in the bathroom, reaffirming her membership in the mile-high club, but those days were behind her. She doubted she’d renew that membership again any time soon.

“I really don’t think that’s possible. But thanks for the offer.” She wondered if he knew she was lying. Of course it was possible, all she had to do was say yes. She merely chose not to.

“That’s a shame. I have this feeling we’d get along really well.” He tore the edge off the bottom of a page in his magazine, grabbed a pen from his shirt pocket, scribbled a number on it and handed it to her. “In case you change your mind.”

Abby laughed and stared at the mobile number in her hand. He certainly was persistent.

“I assume you’ve run out of business cards?” She continued to chuckle as the plane began its descent. “You did say you understood business, right?”

“I did. I also said I was on a pleasure trip. I’ve left all business accessories at the office. This weekend, I’m just a regular guy who uses any piece of paper on hand to give the woman he likes his number.”

Oh Lord, thank heavens the plane had just touched down. She folded the paper, slipped her fingers into the front of her shirt and tucked the number into her bra. It was a mistake to put it there, and Abby knew it the moment her gaze met Kane’s, who was now standing waiting for her to step out into the aisle.

“What?” she asked innocently as Kane stared down at her cleavage with a devilish grin on his face. “It’s just a silly habit I picked up in my partying days. I’d pop anything important in my bra and that way I wouldn’t lose it.”

Grabbing her handbag from the floor, she stood and moved to walk out into the aisle but Kane blocked her way. His body forming a human wall as he retrieved her bag from the overhead cabin. Luggage sorted, Kane didn’t move, fixing her in place with his heated gaze.

“I’m glad you think I’m important.” His devilish grin didn’t waver and he spoke in a tone laced with lust. “I’m also delighted to know that when you take off your clothes tonight and get naked, you’ll be thinking about me.”

She was about to burst into flames. Abby raised her hand, placing it on his chest with the intention of pushing him back, only to find her fingers lingered on the defined muscle beneath her touch.

“We’ll see,” she whispered.

Kane placed his hand over hers, gently gripped her fingers and raised them to his mouth. He kissed her knuckles tenderly and smiled. “We will. Now off to your very busy business day, Abigail Devon.” Stepping back, Kane handed over her bag before ushering her into the aisle. “I look forward to receiving your call later today.”

Unsure how she made it to the plane’s exit on trembling legs, Abby breathed a sigh of relief once she made it into the terminal. Allowing the disembarking crowd to carry her forward, she picked up her pace. The more distance she put between Kane Matheson and herself, the better. Today was all about saving her company, not indulging in a quickie with a man she met on a plane.

Thomas Montgomery seeks out troubled ladies that are in need of a strict and proper upbringing, encouraging them to join Alton Reform. Discovering Elizabeth Grey alone by the tavern at night, he insists he accompany her on the journey home, to ensure she makes her return safely. It is her sharp tongue and fiery defiance that makes him desire her as his little Lizzie.

Without reservation, he suggests to her father that Elizabeth be sent away to Alton Reform, a school known for its strict disciplinary measures to create fine young ladies capable of obeying their husbands. Ladies that without such correction would wind up in an asylum for their tenacious and troublesome ways.

Unwed and with no prospects of marriage, Elizabeth is forced by her father to attend Alton Reform and be trained by her governess under the headmaster’s guidance.

Elizabeth does not take well to Alton Reform’s ways of discipline. Unpleased after a stern spanking to her bare bottom, Elizabeth runs away, only to be caught by Mr. Thomas Montgomery.

Will he force her to return to Alton Reform? Can Thomas show Elizabeth that love can be gained from discipline? How will she feel when he confesses his desire to make her his little Lizzie?

*Little Lizzie’s Reform features elements of age play, anal play, discipline, and graphic sex.

“What is in Alton, father?” He did not elaborate which only made her stomach flop with uncertainty. “Father?” Elizabeth tried again, hoping he would answer her question. She did not like the unknown, and worse she hadn’t even attempted to eavesdrop on their conversation! Why hadn’t she thought to press her ear to the door or leave it ajar to discover what was said? Elizabeth had been wrong in assuming that the handsome gentleman had just brought her back to her father and ratted her out. What more had happened? “Are you sending me off to marry that hideous boy from the carriage?” Her face scrunched in disgust. Not so much from the gentleman who was hardly a boy, but the thought of marriage itself she found repulsive.

“Thomas?” her father asked and laughed. “Hardly. I do not think a man of such a reputation and high caliber would want my own daughter. Which is why it was suggested to me that you attend Alton Reform.”

“You want me to attend a finishing school?” Elizabeth asked.

“No.” Her father shook his head only once, it was enough to get the message and also to see the stern steely gaze to know that he meant her to listen. “You will be schooled in listening and obeying, so that you might be provided the opportunity for a husband.”

#1 Undercover in Six Inch Stilettos

Every woman has secrets, and Cyndi Mills is no exception…

Cyndi has a beautiful daughter, and her husband Jason is totally hot for her, but something is missing. As a cop, Jason is extremely vigilant about safety and security, and Cyndi longs for some time to herself, so she takes a Friday night job.

Jason thinks she’s cleaning offices, when she’s actually dancing in a red bustier and six-inch stilettos at a club called Sugar Shakers, something only her three best friends, also police wives, know.

When club employees start disappearing, the truth comes out…

A young runaway, Jade, and a military widow, Lola, vanish, and Lola’s body is later found in the ocean. Cyndi begins investigating—with some help from her friends—but when anonymous threats put her daughter in jeopardy, she has no choice but to confess her lie to Jason, rocking their previously solid marriage.

Jason is furious, but Cyndi has to ask for even more if she hopes to solve the mystery…

Cyndi convinces Jason to sign her up as a confidential informant, and she officially goes undercover at the club, while Jason struggles to control his jealousy. As the evidence mounts and the danger becomes all too real, Jason fights to keep Cyndi safe.

But no amount of security can protect someone when lies are more common than the truth and no one is who they appear to be.

#2 In the Shadow of the Shield

When a police officer falls, justice must be served.

Donnie Massey was an honest, skilled police officer. That’s probably what got him killed. When his wife Diana watches him die in front of her, the worst part is going to be telling their son, Jackson.

After a year of mourning, Diana decides it’s time to move on with their lives. The first step to getting closure is to visit Donnie’s grave. But when she gets there, she’s not alone…

Good cops are rare. Carter Ryan is one of them.

Mentored by Donnie, Carter is at the grave when his widow shows up. It may not be the best timing, but he needs her help. Carter admits the fallen shield may not have died in the line of duty, but was likely murdered while involved in a secret investigation with deep criminal ties. Diana agrees to aid in unveiling the truth. Donnie deserves that much.

The definition of insanity…

As the two work side by side, a new and delicate romance begins to bloom. But would falling for another cop be the worst mistake of Diana’s life, or the best decision she’s ever made? When the investigation leads them to an underground meth ring, their mission goes from risky to down right perilous.

After a brush with death hits too close to home, will Diana risk loving another cop? Or will their chance at happiness be forever buried in the shadow of the shield?

#3 When First They Practice to Deceive

All Jessy Wallace wants is a happy marriage, but her husband is a liar and in over his head…

Jessy Wallace has spent the last decade happily married to her husband, Sam Wallace. But when she finally lands a job at Dixie’s Place, a hole-in-the-wall diner, she learns that not all is well in paradise. Officer Sam Wallace has been spending a majority of their marriage in the beds of other women. Fed up, Jessy kicks her husband to the curb.

Uncertain if her husband has ever truly loved her, Jessy gets caught completely off guard by the intense attraction she feels for Trey Smith, the night cook at Dixie’s Place. But she recognizes some telltale signs; she discovers he’s an undercover FBI agent. Jessy curses herself for falling for another lawman. To make matters worse, her soon-to-be ex-husband might be involved with Trey’s case.

When true love comes knocking, we have to listen…

After the death of his wife, FBI Agent Trey Smith has spent the last four years married to his work. But when Jessy Wallace starts waitressing at the diner where he is working undercover, he falls head over heels for her. But her ex-husband is one of the top suspects in Trey’s case, and all Trey wants to do is protect her. He can’t lose this once in a lifetime chance at love.

Jessy Wallace is the soon-to-be ex-wife of a suspected criminal. Trey Smith is an undercover FBI agent. Can their love overcome the odds?

Lightning Strike ~ Part 6

LightningStrike_fullresNow, I know I’ve said it before, but this book is rated for +18. I’m putting this at the beginning of the post because what follows is definitely NOT for Facebook and this posts there. Here is the synopsis of Lightning Strike before we get to the meat of the post.

Lightning Strike

By Beverly Ovalle

For generations Levi’s family had guarded a sacred glen in the mountains.  Still far from man this isolated area was a favorite spot of his grandfather.  Levi grew up listening to his tales and fell in love without ever having stepped foot there.

Now Levi’s family, led by his grandmother, wanted to sell the land.  With only his grandfather and Levi against it, Levi has to prove to the rest of the family why they needed to continue their guardianship.  Believing in his grandfather’s tales despite himself, Levi went armed with his camera and his well-known expertise behind the lens and headed out for proof.

Providing that proof and protecting the secrets of the glen from the world, Gaia needs to convince Levi to continue that protection.  Daphnaie, the embodiment of his every dream, is sent to show him why, stealing his heart in the process to save her world.

Part six

Levi shifted, rolling Daphnaie to her back so that he hovered above her, forcing her legs as far apart as he could lapping hungrily at her nectar. He bit her cunt, not enough to hurt, but hard enough to send her higher, her tits hard and bouncing as she shook. Levi shifted, pistoning up, holding Daphnaie down and ramming into her cunt, his thrusts shaking her body with each thrust. He leaned down and took a nipple in his mouth, suckling in time to his thrusts. She screamed, her body shaking and strangling his dick as she came. He thrust into her harder, the pressure on his dick from her walls sending him spiraling. He continued to ram into her until he emptied himself, releasing her breast from his mouth as he finished.

He collapsed onto her, rolling to her side so he wouldn’t squash her, causing her to moan as his dick dragged out of her sensitive opening.

They lay there, breathing heavily. He turned to his side, propping his head up with his hand and looked her over. He smirked in satisfaction. She looked exhausted and flushed with use. Her hair was damp. Her breasts where he had been sucking were darker and bruised from his use. His dick twitched. Her clit was red and swollen. Her pussy flushed and shiny, her lips plump and darker, covered in their combined cum. He reached a finger out and ran it up her slit, she twitched and moaned. He smiled. Her cunt was still wet, his cream rolling slowly from her opening down to drip off of her pretty little rosette.

“It’s not too much?” Levi knew his voice sounded satisfied, could feel the smile on his face. Daphnaie smiled and shook her head.

“No,” her voice was husky, “It is the best way to heal my tree.”

He was down for the count, his dick barely able to move from the usage, but he couldn’t stop from wanting to touch her. He plunged his finger into her soaking passage, in and out, watching her, loving the slick silkiness of her clasping greedily on his finger. He did it hard enough to see her shake, and watch her boobs bounce. He leaned down and sucked in the nipple that was not wearing his hickey. He sucked, wanting to mark this side too. He fucked her with his finger as he sucked her breast. Watching her pussy, he could see her clit rise and pulse seeking contact. He moved his fingers from her dripping cunt and pinched her clit, biting her nipple at the same time. Her body bowed as she came again. With a twist to her clit, he plunged two fingers back in her pussy, fucking her with his finger and seeing her body bounce with his force. The sight made him hard as a rock.

He released her nipple from his teeth, sucking her tit back in his mouth, engulfing as much of her breast as he could. He fucked her, forcing her to ride his hand until she screamed in pleasure. With a gush, she soaked him, tightening painfully on his fingers. He continued to finger fuck her until she stopped shaking, barely able to jerk. He lifted his head and licked her glistening darkened nipple.

“Are you okay?” he whispered to her. She laid limp and spread, nipples bruised, sweat dripping off her and her pussy wet with cum. She was beautiful. She turned her head and smiled.

“Oh yes.” A slight breeze stirred the air, her tight nipples tightening even more. The wind whispered over her pussy, causing it to pulse.

He swore he saw a face in the breeze, a tongue reach out of the wind and lick Daphnaie’s slit and tease her clit. She moaned and writhed. As Levi watched, he could see her pussy move, looking like it was being fucked by the wind. Her clit pulsed just like an invisible mouth was sucking it slowly. Her breasts were pushed up, each nipple hard and elongating as they were invisibly sucked. She moaned in pleasure.

Levi swallowed and hardened to the point of pain. He was watching Daphnaie being fucked and sucked by what had to be four people, four invisible people. His dick throbbed. He could not believe how turned on he was. He moved his hand to grab his dick but invisible hands held them away filling them with what felt like warm female flesh. He could hear laughter on the wind. A warm, wet breeze settled over his dick, feeling tight to the point of pain as it engulfed him. He shivered. He could feel but not see breasts bouncing against his chest. He could feel but not see a hot tight pussy fucking him as fast as possible. He groaned when he felt a mouth engulf his balls with a warm wet suction.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this peek! Follow me on Saturday for exclusive news and the continuation of Lightning Strike.


Creating the Audiobook of PAPER DOLL

Creating the Audiobook of PAPER DOLL

the first Jana Lane mystery

by Joe Cosentino


Many readers told me the Jana Lane mystery series should be a television series. I agree! Hear that, television producers! Until that time comes, I decided to have an audiobook. What fun it was to go back to where it all started with PAPER DOLL and work on the audiobook. Actress Charissa Clark Howe captured the essence of Jana Lane perfectly, and she also did a fine job with all the other characters in the novel: Brian (Jana’s husband), Rocco (Jana’s producer), Jackson (Jana’s best friend), Mark (Jana’s greatest fan), Tamara (Jana’s sister), Scott (Jana’s father), Simon (Jana’s agent) and more. Balancing humor, romance, and mystery perfectly, she hit every beat. I couldn’t wait for the ending, and when it came I was totally shocked! Now more than ever I want to play Simon Huckby in a television series version of the novels.

Going back to the first novel also helped me evaluate why I wrote the series. I had terrible insomnia as a kid. Believe it or not, the thing that finally helped me sleep was reading cozy mystery novels before bed. Thankfully my parents didn’t mind! So I read three mystery novels a week, watched The Alfred Hitchcock mysteries on television, and saw every mystery movie possible. This passion continued throughout my teen and young adult years. Eventually I became an actor in film, television, and theatre, working opposite stars like Bruce Willis, Nathan Lane, Rosie O’Donnell, Holland Taylor, and Jason Robards. One of my jobs was playing Ross (I mean Ross not Hercule) Poirot in a murder mystery dinner theatre show. Since a great deal of that show was improvisation, it occurred to me that acting is storytelling in the same way that writing is storytelling, so I decided to give writing a try. After writing some plays, I knew my novels would include show business in some way, since show business has always been such a huge part of my life. As an avid mystery reader, it was clear to me that my novels would also be page-turning mysteries with clever plot twists, engaging characters, romance, and lots of clues leading to a surprising conclusion a la Agatha Christie. Since coming from a funny Italian-American family, I also knew humor would play a role in my novels.

My favorite time period is the 1890’s. So I created a mystery series taking place during that wonderful period of fantastic hair, clothing, music, makeup, movies, theatre, and divisive politics and social changes.

As a child I loved child stars like Shirley Temple, Hayley Mills, and Patty Duke, seeing their movies over and over. So I created a heroine who was the biggest child star ever until she was attacked on the studio lot at eighteen years old. The five Jana Lane mysteries revolve around Jana Lane, enjoying a comeback personally and professionally as she solves murder mysteries in the entertainment industry.

In PAPER DOLL Jana at thirty-eight lives with her family in a mansion in picturesque Hudson Valley, New York. Her flashbacks from the past become murder attempts in her future. Forced to summon up the lost courage she had as a child, Jana ventures back to Hollywood, which helps her uncover a web of secrets about everyone she loves. The local suspects include Jana’s down-on-his-luck husband with a dislike for living off the fruits of his wife’s young labor, Jana’s sister and male friend (who both have eyes for Jana’s husband), Jana’s show business father, her deranged loyal fan, and Jana’s young Guy Friday who covets her fame and shares an uncanny resemblance to Jana. She also embarks on a romance with the devilishly handsome son of her old producer, Rocco Cavoto. In PORCELAIN DOLL Jana makes a comeback film and uncovers who is being murdered on the set and why. Her heart is set aflutter by her incredibly gorgeous co-star, America’s heartthrob Jason Apollo. In SATIN DOLL Jana and family head to Washington, DC, where Jana plays a US senator in a new film, and becomes embroiled in a murder and corruption at the senate chamber. She also embarks on a flirtation with Chris Bruno, the muscular detective. In CHINA DOLL Jana heads to New York City to star in a Broadway play, enchanted by her gorgeous co-star Peter Stevens, and faced with murder on stage and off. In RAG DOLL Jana stars in a television murder mystery show and once again life imitates art. Jana is also reunited with Chris Bove, the detective who got away.

So go back to the beginning. Curl up with PAPER DOLL the audiobook and enjoy the mystery. And let me know what you think. I love hearing from readers. You can contact me at: Lights! Camera! Action!

Audiobook by Charissa Clark Howe on Amazon:




Jana Lane was America’s most famous child star until she was attacked on the studio lot at eighteen years old. Now a thirty-eight-year-old beauty and mother of two living in a mansion in picturesque Hudson Valley, New York, Jana’s flashbacks from her past turn into murder attempts in her present.

Forced to summon up the lost courage she had as a child, Jana visits the California movie studio she once called home. This sends her on a whirlwind of visits with former and current movie studio personnel. It also leads to a romance with the son of her old producer—Rocco Cavoto—the devilishly handsome filmmaker who is planning Jana’s comeback both professionally and personally. With Rocco’s help, Jana uncovers a web of secrets about everyone she loves, including the person who destroyed her past and threatens to snuff out her future.
