February is going to mean more than hearts and flowers to me. Not only is it the romantic holiday season of the year AND the month of my wedding anniversary, it's also going to be the month I have FOUR releases being published.
Yes, you heard me right. FOUR!
Coming February 2 from Total E-bound:

She is determined to stay away from him - but someone else is equally determined to use her to manipulate the outcome of the World Poker Tournament Championship.
