The Undead Life of Molly Thorn

Molly Thorn used to be young and hip. Then she died. Now, she’s back from the second veil as a hot-flashing, brain-glitching, middle-aged woman. Worse yet, the shop she owns—Unraveling Yarn—is a cover for her new position as Assistant to the Grim Reaper of the Magicals. The guy’s a total grump.

On her first undead night, Molly discovers a co-ed group of misfit Mythicals hiding in her attic: a vampire, an ogre, a dragon, and a fairy. The eclectic group of knitting enthusiasts fuss and discuss absolutely everything, but sex after forty is their favorite topic upon which to share their questionable collection of wisdom.

There’s one small problem to the Undead Life of Molly Thorn. The previous owner of her body, now a ghost, has filed a petition to get it back. While Molly would gladly trade it in for a younger model, that’s not a freaking option. If she loses her body, she morphs into a coffin dust bunny.

And that’s not high on her list of bad future decisions to make.

The Magical Midlife of Molly Thorn

★★★★★ It’s here. Book Two of the hilarious Magical Midlife Moonlighting Series. If you’ve not yet read book one, The Undead Life of Molly Thorn, go grab it first.

Unceremoniously whisked away from Harmony’s epic showdown between the Mythicals and Slayers, hot-flashing, brain-glitching, middle-aged Molly Thorn decides it’s time to reenter the dating world. But first, she needs to figure out which type of man wets her dehydrated whistle.

Thankfully, her boss the Grim Reaper, has offered to take her on a couple of practice dates to work out some of her memory kinks before she does it for real. What could possibly go wrong with this plan?

Plenty! That’s how much can go wrong when the Grim dates his assistant. So wrong the Grim is placed on administrative leave. A leave he may never be allowed to return from.

To make matters worse, Molly is informed by the new interim Grim if her boss goes, so does her undead status.

Her Night in Shining Armani

You make one little mistake proofing a mafia contract, and suddenly their hitman wants to meet with you...♥♥

By day, Wendy Travis is a stone-cold-accurate proofreader of contracts for individuals whose deeds bend toward the peculiar. By night, she’s the out-of-date fashionista president of the Manhattan Knitters’ Club. The club’s motto: What happens at knit club stays at knit club!

When the new upstairs neighbor interrupts her sleep with his nocturnal shenanigans, she’s suddenly not so accurate in her job. With the backup of her knitting friends, she confronts Mr. Can’t Keep It In His Pants.

Land developer, Jackson Adler, is in the wrong place at the…right time. When a posse of tiara-wearing, needle-wielding misfits—including one very animated, very sexy, and slightly tipsy woman—mistake him for the tenant of Apartment 5C, he doesn’t correct their error. Instead, he suggests a quid pro quo agreement. He’ll pipe down if Wendy agrees to buy him at an upcoming bachelor-auction…on his dime of course.

Wendy counters wither her own quid pro quo offer because she intends to find out if those late-night moans and squeals of pleasure are fake—or stone-cold accurate responses.

Conventional? No. Worthwhile? Time will tell.

Just recently, his 5-year-old daughter, Josi, gave him a letter for Santa which he mailed without reading. Dumb. At least he’s done one Christmas thing right.

He’s on deadline and will need help minding Josi. Can he find a holiday nanny?

Aggie the Horrible Versus Max the Pompous Ass (releases July 19th)

One's playing a game. The other's keeping score.

When wild-child Aggie Corelissen shows up for an interview with the last person she’d ever want to work for, golden-boy entrepreneur Max Treadwell, she has one goal—to not be offered the position. While she hates to disappoint the two matchmaking grandmothers who’d pressed Max to hire her, she wants nothing to do with a pity job. Besides, the guy could easily win Mr. Pompous Ass of the year.

The last thing Max wants is to offer Aggie a job. The woman, a mixture of bizarre and annoying, has gone through at least a half-dozen employers this year already. He might’ve promised Grandmother he’d hire her, but if Aggie doesn’t take it because he’s more than a little un-charming, that won’t be his fault. After all, his company is on the brink of a major land acquisition, and the last thing he needs is a screw-up as a personal assistant.

With neither of them willing to disappoint their grandmothers, the interview becomes the stuff of legends, and somehow, before either can blink, they’re suddenly stuck working together.

Aggie’s determined the only way out is to be the worst assistant ever and get fired...

Max knows his grandmother would kill him if he fired Aggie, so he’ll just have to be so awful she quits...

But what happens next, no one could have seen coming.

It's a Curse Thing

It's not forever. It's not freaking forever.

What's a witch to do when her magic's been hacked and her tongue wickedly cursed! No matter how hard Eloise Redd concentrates on keeping her thoughts to herself, she blurts them. The only option is to lie low and wait for the hacker's ransom note —and hope the demands aren't too steep. In the meantime, she hides out in a haunted town as a palm reader. What could possibly go wrong reading palms?

Jeffrey Bales, Chief Operating Officer of Think Tank Innovations, is excellent at peopling. What he's not good at is fending off a multitude of women convinced he's their souls' missing puzzle piece. All thanks to the town's magical palm reader. A woman whose mouth should come with a hazard warning. He has no choice but to turn his charms on her to silence those wayward words. Just a tiny, fake relationship should work...

Unless it takes place under the roof of a bewitched house. One determined to bind them together eternally. That ransom demand can't arrive soon enough.

What if this is forever?

Hexes and O's

Inherited: One haunted house; One witch’s manual; One mandatory ‘to do’ list.
Not Inherited: One hunky neighbor; One memory-challenged ghost; One set of town gossips

When down-on-her-luck costume designer Remington Smith receives a surprise inheritance, she must return to the town she swore to forget. And complete a list of mandatory projects. And learn to cast magic spells. Magic spells? Too bad the hunky guy next door keeps getting in the way.

After a tornado ravages a small town, Jason Hart purchases ninety percent of the property as a cooperate training ground for Think Tank Innovations. But his first renovation crew quits. Then another. And another. They all say ghosts are running amok—and the whole town is hexed with an anti-love spell. Except Jason doesn’t believe in ghosts or (anti) love spells. And given how drawn he is to his spunky new neighbor, that doesn’t seem likely to change anytime soon.

While Remington works to complete her inherited to-do-list, avoid falling for her playboy neighbor, and learn how to cast spells that don’t backfire, she discovers a deadly mystery involving the orphanage where she grew up. A mystery so deadly that Jason starts trying to shove her out of town and out of his life. But Remington has never been good at taking orders.

"Smart, sexy, and deliciously fun, this book is everything I love about the written word! It's a masterful balance of humor and heart with a touch of mystery thrown in for good measure. Do NOT let this one get away!"

The Attraction of Adeline

Fake it until you make it…

The Proposal: Adeline Rigby will live with Accountant Jack Foster and pretend to be his fake fiancée for one month in order for him to seal a promotion to partner. In return, Accountant Jack Foster will intimately tutor Adeline Rigby in French before she leaves for Paris where she will fulfill her dream of attending Le Cordon Bleu.

The Terms:

1. Maintain distance. Three get-to-know-you dates before announcing their engagement will be tempting enough.

2. No kissing. Okay, fine. Three kisses. Maybe four. And neck kisses don’t count.

3. No touchy feely stuff. Or at least not too many public displays of touchy-feely stuff.

4. No sex.

5. All right, all right. One night of sex in order to be a believable engaged couple.

6. Two nights of mind-blowing sex to make sure first night wasn’t a fluke.

7. Absolutely, positively, no falling in love.

Reviews:

5 Stars: “Craziness, sadness, and outright hilarity ensue between these two and make this an absolute gem of a book for me. I would definitely pick up another novel written by Lisa Wells in a heartbeat.” - C. J. Butcher

5 Stars: “I absolutely loved this book. Adeline was such a hilarious woman…Jack made their arrangement so much sweeter and so very sexy.” - Lori, Goodreads.com Review

THE SEDUCTION OF KINLEY FOSTER

Librarian Kinley Foster wants to write erotic romance—the steamy, sexy, curl-your-toes kind of stuff. The problem? She desperately needs a little erotic inspiration. And at a romance convention in Vegas, she finds it...or rather him. The sizzlingly sexy guy who refused Kinley—and her virginity—when she was sixteen.

Now it's time for a little payback.

Literary agent Ian Thompson is a professional. Mentoring an aspiring author is one thing. Giving her a thorough and thoroughly satisfying sexy education is quite another. Especially when she's as stunning and deliciously curvaceous as Kinley. Yet Ian can't help himself when Kinley makes him a wager he can't resist. A wager that will tempt Ian to cross every professional—and every sensual—boundary in the book...

Overall, this book was a delightful read where the hot, fan-your-face sex scenes prove just how good this couple is together, and that they shouldn’t let anything get in the way of being together. 

Early Reviews from NetGalley:

Katrina Berry -

*squeeeeeee* The Seduction of Kinley Foster by Lisa Wells is a must-read. Ms. Wells did a fantab job; it’s funny, it’s sizzling hot...it’s simply amazing. Once you start you are not going to want to stop until you get to the very end. Ms. Wells is definitely on my go-to reading list. Thank you!
