I just received my cover for Dangerous Grounds, and am thrilled!! This book won first place in the contemporary category of the Stroke of Midnight contest (a couple contests back). It releases in ebook format (then later in print) from Samhain Publishing January 1st, 2008. Here’s a glimpse and my first author quote from the fabulous Lauren Dane.

Something’s hot in Seattle, and it’s not just the espresso.

Madison’s needs are simple. All she wants are two things: Make Ooo La Latté the newest trend in espresso, and seduce the sexiest cop in Seattle. But things aren’t going exactly as planned.

First, Gabe’s a little hung up on the fact that she’s his best friend’s little sister, and he’s determined to keep his hands off. Second, her shop gets robbed by the increasingly violent Espresso Bandit, and now she’s the only one who can identify him.

Gabe whisks her into hiding for her own protection, but soon finds his heart is under assault by the luscious—and persistent—Madison. But no matter where they hide, danger follows.

On such dangerous grounds, the trick will be to live long enough to keep the flame alive.

“Shelli Steven’s Dangerous Grounds is one sexy read! Friends to lovers is one of my favorite themes and in Dangerous Grounds Stevens gives us a mouthwateringly masculine and sexy hero who’ll protect the heroine with his own life. Wonderful sexual tension, witty dialog and a well written suspense backstory team up to give readers a thrilling ride.” Lauren Dane, author of Samhain’s Chase brothers series.
