Sneak Peek: Upcoming New Releases by Emma Chase

I'm so thrilled to announce the upcoming

New Releases by Emma Chase

The Legal Briefs Series will consist of:
OVERRULED coming April 2015

Pre-Order ↓

Summary: Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled series, returns with the first installment of the Legal Briefs series! A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don’t call him the Jury Charmer for nothing—with his southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he’s a hard man to say no to.
Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross examined by him. Stanton’s a man with a plan. And for a while, life was going according to that plan. Until the day he receives an invitation to the wedding of his high school sweetheart, the mother of his beloved ten-year-old daughter.
Jenny is getting married—to someone who isn’t him. That's definitely not part of the plan. ***

Sofia Santos is a city-raised, no-nonsense litigator who plans to become the most revered criminal defense attorney in the country. She doesn’t have time for relationships or distractions. But when Stanton, her "friend with mind-blowing benefits," begs her for help, she finds herself out of her element, out of her depth, and obviously out of her mind. Because she agrees to go with him to The-Middle-Of-Nowhere, Mississippi, to do all she can to help Stanton win back the woman he loves.
Her head tells her she's crazy...and her heart says something else entirely. What happens when you mix a one-stop-light town, two professional arguers, a homecoming queen, four big brothers, some Jimmy Dean sausage, and a gun-toting Nana? The Bourbon flows, passions rise, and even the best-laid plans get overruled by the desires of the heart.

SUSTAINED coming winter 2015


Summary: A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight. When you’re a defense attorney in Washington DC, you see first-hand how hard life can be and that sometimes the only way to survive is to become harder. I have a reputation for being cold, callous, intimidating – and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand.
Complications don’t work for me - I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will get you off. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming – and I don’t pretend to be. Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life.
Now I’m going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room and am knee deep in a damn compost pit. Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be hard, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, defend her…and the kids. And that – that I know how to do.

APPEALED coming early 2016


Summary: Kennedy Randolph was the girl next door. The last time I saw her she was a shy, awkward teenager in a high school graduation cap. Now she’s a prosecutor – the opposing attorney in my next case. And boy has Kennedy changed. She’s stunning, self-assured…and wants to crush the most intimate – and prized – parts of my anatomy beneath the heels of her Christian Louboutins. Life isn’t always fair – tragedies strike – I understand that better than most. But I’ve never let that stop me from living a fulfilling life. I set my goals high and then I reach them. Now my sights are set on Kennedy. Every argument, every objection just makes me want her more. The problem is - she knows it. **

You never forget your first. Brent Mason was the first boy I ever loved – the first boy who broke my heart. And he hasn’t changed a bit. He still looks like he stepped out of an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue, still pretends to be oblivious to the hell his friends put me through in high school. I’m not a lovesick social outcast anymore. I’m a Washington DC prosecutor and my winning streak is long. I think it’s time to put Brent through a little hell of his own. Still, a part of me wonders if he’s as passionate in the bedroom as he is in the courtroom – and each fiery exchange brings me one step closer to finding out. ***
Will Brent and Kennedy end up in bed – or in contempt of court?

APPEALED is a sexy, irreverent romance about first crushes, second chances and
the final verdict of the heart.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Ramon strolled down the sidewalk following the two young women who laughed
and patted each other on the shoulder. They were up to something. Ramon sent a subtle
suggestion to them, a little glamour, a little enchantment mixed in with witchcraft. He
sent a special thank-you to Prudence again. Vampires had their powers to charm and
lure their quarry, he had something extra.
One of the women stopped, grabbed her friend by the arm. “Hey, let’s check this
out.” She was the bitchy one with long dark hair who had given Larissa a hard time.
“Check what out?”
“I’ve never seen that side street before and it goes straight down to the river.
What a pretty view.”
“Side street? It’s an alley and it’s dark,” her quiet friend warned.
“Not too dark. Come on, quick walk. Look at the Christmas lights along the shore
in Lambertville.”
“Fine, whatever,” the friend groaned. “Then I want to hit Havana’s for a drink.”
They strolled down the narrow path shaded by evergreen trees and thick
shrubbery. At the end was a wooden dock, deserted of boats for the winter months.
“Wouldn’t you love to live here?” the bitchy one asked.
“Yeah, it’s nice. And it’s cold. Can we go now?”
“Hi, ladies.” Ramon approached them and surrounded them in an invisible
blanket of his allure.
“Hello,” they both said, hesitantly.
“Are we trespassing?” the quiet one asked.
“I suppose.” He glanced down at their bags. “Christmas shopping?”
“Yes. Want to see what we bought?” The bitchy one opened her bag and pulled
out five sexy lingerie items. Then the other one showed off her selection.
“Nice. Looks pretty pricy,” he said.
“They would be if we paid for them,” the quiet one giggled. She was well under his
spell to admit the shoplifting he’d suspected.
“Hmmm. Bad girls too. I like bad girls. I bet you’d both look hot and sexy wearing
them. It’s getting me turned-on.”
“I bet.” The bitchy one didn’t flinch by his boldness and the other one stared at
him with a glazed look. It was a test to see how far under his control they were. They
passed with flying colors. She stepped up and placed a hand on his chest. “Maybe you
wouldn’t like us once you knew how bad we were.”
She opened her coat and unbuttoned her sweater, revealing a swell of large breast
above a bra two sizes too small. “Hmmm. Sweet,” he said.
Taking his hand, she brought it up to her breast. “Can you take both of us?”
“No doubt.”
They were far enough under his spell to take a blood offering, a double offering
at that, take the lingerie items they stole and return them to Larissa’s shop. Something
wasn’t right. Crimson swans weren’t usually this aggressive. Willing for sex, receptive to
seduction, yes, but this aggressive, no.
When crimson swans were under the spell, they often wanted to share their life
stories. Before he made his collection, he wanted to know more.
Something about these two bothered him to the core. He’d been taking offerings
for over a hundred years and could read people.
“Tina, not this one,” the quiet one warned.
“Idiot, you used my name. This is the last one for the night. Promise.”
“No, I don’t want to do this anymore,” the friend said.
“Shut up.” Tina smiled. “He’s hot and wants to fuck both of us.”
“Don’t want to do what anymore?” Ramon asked. “What’s your story?” The bitchy
one was strong willed and he sensed the other one was troubled by something.
“Mister, my friend has a knife.”
“Stupid bitch,” Tina said.

Worth Forgiving is LIVE! This is book three in the sexy alpha male MMA Fighter Series and is Jax and Lily's Story!

Grab your copy at: 

They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work.

Cover Reveal: Summer of Seventeen by Jane Harvey-Berrick

Coming: September 22, 2014
It was supposed to be the endless summer of sand, sea, and surf.

Supposed to be.

But Nick Andrews life is crashing out of control. His girlfriend and his best friend have declared war, his sister’s constant interference in his life is driving him insane, and there are money problems that won’t go away.

Being seventeen isn’t supposed to be this hard.

When cool surfer Marcus arrives in town, Nick sees that there are easier ways to live. But with his life falling to pieces around him, it’s hard to know who to trust.

As the scorching heat of summer grows, events begin to unravel, reaching a shattering conclusion—and a summer he’ll never forget.


“You have a great ass,” she whispered.
“Oh, yeah!”
“It’s all yours,” I challenged her. “You only gotta ask.”
“Maybe I won’t ask; maybe I’ll just grab a hold,” she laughed.
“Fine by me.”
As the trees thinned out, I could see people already laying out beach towels, and a couple of guys throwing a football. Some of them I knew, but there were several I didn’t. I thought maybe they went to Viera or Rockledge schools. 
Yansi laid out two towels for us while Megan took charge of the food and Esther was eye-fucking one of the guys playing football.
I tugged off my t-shirt and plopped down next to Yansi. She was wearing some real short cut-off jeans that showed her butt cheeks, and a tank top that was cropped above her belly button. She looked incredible.
“How come you were allowed to leave the house like that?” I teased.
She smirked at me and pointed to her sweater.
“I tied this around my waist. Papi couldn’t tell the difference.”
“And your mom?”
Yansi laughed. “She just shook her head and said to tell you hi.”


I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene. Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

Perfectly Innocent-72dpi


Innocent or guilty—there’s nothing perfect about it. Phoebe Davidson is a good girl who’s been through some bad times. Her life changed forever when she learned that her husband was living a secret life. Now, six years later, she’s just going through the motions of her life, afraid to let anyone in. When a horrific crime occurs in her home, she meets Logan Matthews, a police detective working the case. When Phoebe herself is charged with the murder, can she trust Logan? Can she, and should she let him into her life?

About Tamra Lassiter

I live outside Washington, D.C. with my wonderfully supportive husband and two daughters, one of which is approaching her teenage years. Help us all! If that isn’t enough, we have a Great Dane and an English Bulldog to keep us on our toes. It’s crazy around here and I love every minute of it!
Writing is my third career. I didn't set out to be a writer, it was just meant to be. My Mechanical Engineering degree from Virginia Tech prepared me well for my first career as an Engineer/Program Manager. My second career was in Human Resources. Long story, but I figured it out. I believe the best start for a writing career is to be a reader first and I’ve been an avid reader my whole life. I've loved to read ever since I picked up my first Nancy Drew mystery in the fourth grade. Now I love reading just about everything, but I don’t read sad books and I don’t watch sad movies either for that matter, no matter how many awards they’ve won. Life’s too short and who needs all that strife to bring us down?
Many of my words have been penned late into the evening, which explains why I’ve never viewed whatever television show you recommend to me. I would, however, love to hear your recommendations for a great read!
