Deal with the Devil

Devilish Devlins ~ Book 1

Diana Duncan's new romantic comedy series sparkles with humor, heart, and plenty of of heat! 

When Irish eyes are smilin’…beware! Because trouble—and love—isn’t far behind!

Paradise for software designer Cynthia Wagner means uninterrupted solitude to invent a brilliant video game, and save her job. But renovations on her city apartment force her to seek refuge in a temporary rental in the ‘burbs.

The promised Paradise morphs into Purgatory when she meets her new neighbor, a deliciously tempting Irish rogue sporting a wicked grin and to-die-for body. Worse, the handsome bachelor has noisy, drooly, havoc-creating baggage on his hands for the summer… rambunctious five-year-old twin nephews, a baby niece, and the kids’ yappy dog. 

Rory Devlin is a dangerous distraction—and he’s hiding a naughty secret.

Jackhammers and contractors would have provided more peace and quiet.

Stuck in the Suburbs of the Damned with Mr. Uncle-Turned-Mom and his wild menagerie, Cynthia struggles to meet her deadline. But she struggles more with her undeniable attraction to her devlish-ous neighbor. 

Could it be that what Cyn has mistaken for hell is actually the heaven she’s been searching for?

and unforgettable characters.  A compelling                                   roller-coaster ride of adventures."  ~ Romantic Times

Sword of the Raven

Devil May Care 

Devilish Devlins ~ Book 2

Free-wheeling rogue Flynn Devlin roars into Marisa Matheson's well-ordered life on a Harley, with a devil-may-care attitude, a body made for sin, and an Irish lilt that could charm the panties off a nun. 

Exactly the kind of bad boy she doesn't need.

Except Flynn also possesses magic talent with a camera--something she desperately needs to keep her wedding planning business from tanking after her regular photographer is injured.

Flynn Devlin is the only thing standing between Marisa and complete financial ruin.

He's also hiding a damning secret from her. All in the name of love, but still...Flynn knows that when the lass who's capturing his heart as easily as he captures images finds out he's not what he claims to be, all hell will break loose. 

And his devil-may-care attitude doesn't include his heart.

Because this devil doesn't want just a fling with his stubbornly independent lass...he wants forever,

When destiny don't hit ignore.

Delaney Morgan's ho-hum life begins to fray around the edges when her cop brother is framed and imprisoned. Determined to exonerate him, she starts poking her nose where it doesn't belong. Things go from extra-ordinary to extraordinary when she finds Mr. Tall, Dark, and Naked washed up on a deserted Oregon beach.

Rowan MacLachlan is no ordinary man. He's a semi-immortal Highlander. A Water Mage, Supernatural Enforcer...and since the slaughter of his entire family, Chieftain of his Clan. Recently escaped from the clutches of the Sorceress Cearde, he's drawn to Delaney's newly awakening Powers. She learns her brother possessed similar Powers, and his "situation" is entangled with the magical forces he tried to shield her from.

Pulled into an epic battle of light and dark...with a kick-ass pair of boots and a Bon Jovi inspired battle cry...Delaney vows to help Rowan avenge his family, and free her brother from the dark forces holding him captive. First, Rowan must teach her to control and wield her new magic. 

When passion flares between mentor and student, so do their Powers. With Delaney's help, Rowan plans to vanquish the evil bitch who killed his family. Even if it means betraying the woman he's come to love.

One of them may be required to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Can love really conquer all? Betrayal. Evil. Even death?

Delaney is about to find out. Because she's destined to be the Sword of the Raven.

Dear Readers,

A lot of you are wondering where I've been and why it's taken so long for me to release a new book. Life does like to throw us curveballs, and boy, did I get smacked upside the head with a big one. Without any warning, I became seriously ill and ended up flat on my back for close to a year. I couldn't eat much more than applesauce, oatmeal, and mashed potatoes, and lost over 50 pounds. I could barely crawl out of bed to take a shower (while sitting in a plastic chair). And writing was impossible.

Are we having fun yet? NOT! *G*

However, by the grace of God, I am slowly beginning to re-climb the mountain. I'm able to eat a little more variety of foods, have achieved a healthy weight, and am pecking out a few words here and there on all the stories finally vying for my attention again.

In response to the many wonderful emails asking about sequels to "Sword of the Raven," and to my "Devilish Devlin" series: AYE, there will be sequels. Probably not as fast as you'd like to see them, but I'll be working as quickly as I can manage. 

Thank you for your support, it means so much to me. 

Did you know you don't need an ereader to enjoy ebooks? Amazon and Barnes & Noble both have one-click FREE apps that allow you to read on your computer or smartphone. That's the way I did it for 2 years until I could buy a refurbished ereader. I was afraid the books would look like WORD documents, but they don't. They look and read like actual printed books.  :)

Also the Smashwords versions of my books (click on "other formats") can be read directly on your smartphone or computer with no app required.

Laws of Attraction

Marriage & Mayhem! ~ Book 1

He's a Texas lawman carrying a badge...and a grudge.

And he could die protecting his unintended bride.

They're a perfect pair, both tough, wary, and the walking wounded. When their quests for vengeance collide, Undercover DEA Agent Dallas McQuade and Mia Linden, a disbarred lawyer whose personal life has been destroyed by drug lord Esteban Montoya, are forced into  a reluctant partnership—and a quickie Las Vegas wedding.

Dallas vows to protect his temporary wife, but Mia has plans of her own, and they don't include leaving all the heavy lifting—or bullet-dodging—to Dallas.

Neither of them planned on falling in lust, let alone love. But they can’t fight the passion…and emotions…ricocheting between them.

But will Dallas choose vengeance—or love?

Maybe they can heal each other. And their make-believe marriage can become real.

If they survive.

Big Bad Wolfe

Marriage & Mayhem! ~ Book 2
FBI Special Agent Zane Wolfe fears nothing...
Except fatherhood. 

So suddenly discovering he's the father of a five-year-old son terrifies him.

Jillian Ramsay has had temporary custody of her best friend’s little boy since his mother recently died. As the assistant director of a school for disadvantaged children, she recognizes Zane is a survivor of childhood abuse. While Jillian understands Zane's trepidation, she also sees that behind his protective walls, her Big Bad Wolfe is good-hearted and caring. She’s in a desperate fight for custody against the child’s vicious uncle…and she needs Zane to face his fears—just long enough to help her win permanent custody of his son. 

Zane's ready to turn tail and run for the first time in his life. Until sinister motives behind the death of his son’s mother put both the boy and Jillian in danger. As Zane works with Jillian to secure his son's future, keeping his barricades intact becomes far more difficult than he imagined.

Because while Jillian might not huff and puff, her patience and tenderness are chipping away at his walls. 

He’ll do anything to protect his son…including temporarily marrying Jillian. Then he’s determined to return to his safe, solitary existence. 

The Big Bad Wolfe fears nothing.

Except failing those he loves. 

This is the 2nd and final book in the Marriage & Mayhem! series. Laws of Attraction is Book 1.

Cross Country Christmas

Marriage & Mayhem! Christmas Special

The best gifts in life are surprises…

Surprise! Thanks to a blizzard named Blitzen, Christie McQuade can’t make it home for Christmas. Stranded in an airport, things look bleak…until she runs into delicious Deputy Damian Reade, who along with his four-year-old son, Eli, is likewise wondering how to salvage his holidays.

A ’57 Chevy Bel Air christened “Vixen” is their last hope. Christie’s not always the trusting type…but after a background check through her investigative brother clears Damian – and after all, how can a man who’s so patient and loving with his son be dangerous? – she joins them on a Cross Country Christmas adventure filled with fun and surprises…not the least of which is the powerful chemistry between Damian and Christie.

Chemistry is one thing. Heart-tugging is another. And damned if both father and son aren’t soon tugging on Christie’s previously-broken heart-strings.

A child’s unshakeable faith in Santa, his seemingly impossible Christmas wishes of the Jolly Old Man, and a whole lot of holiday magic may lead Damian and Christie to the biggest surprise of all…love.

Although the first two books in this series are Romantic Suspense, this special Christmas novel does not contain suspense. You do not need to read the first two books in order to fully enjoy this story, as it stands alone. However readers of "Laws of Attraction" and "Big Bad Wolfe" will love revisiting their favorite characters and celebrating with them during the holidays.
