Jean Joachim (Contemporary Romance)
"Sexy Night at the Museum"
Liza stretched her arms over her head then brought them down, folding them around the naked chest of Dr. Rick Banks hovering over her in the big bed.  As he lowered his mouth to hers, the phone rang and Rick glanced at the clock…seven a.m. He gave Liza a quizzical look as he moved over to answer the phone. 
“It’s the police,” he said turning his head to face her, cupping his hand over the phone. 
Ana Hart (Fantasy Romance)
“That crazy old bastard lied to us,” Natalia hissed as she peered between Brant's cupped hands at the softly glowing pendant he cradled there so carefully. “He said midnight, did he not? And here we are . . . as good as dead.”

Lisa Darling
The waiting is always the hardest part. She stands in the doorway with the cool night breeze blowing back her graying hair and staring off into the dark for any sign of him.  Perhaps a rustle of leaves or a quiet footfall will alert her to his nearing presence.  

Lindsay Downs 
The plaintive cry from a nearby Great Horned Owl wormed its way into his unconsciousness. Against his will and better judgment he forced one eye open, partway.

Lee Ann Sontheimer Murphy (Romance) 
 I rode shotgun in a vintage, mint condition black 1959 Cadillac Sedan De Ville with Will Brennan at the wheel. Since my Will proved to be one of the best drivers I ever rode beside, with nerves of steel and total control, I had no fear when we winged our way into the greater LA area at a high rate of speed. After the two hour trek across the dark desert from Las Vegas, we entered LA before midnight.
Charles was greeted warmly by Esmeralda's family. Charles felt funny about eating their food, because he realized how poor they were, but he also realized he would be offending them by not staying.

J.R. Jenkins (Contemporary)

Gotta love events at the shop. They’re chaotic, tons of people, and lots of fun. I think so at least, but I guess it depends on who you ask. More often than not, I don’t like to work late nights. At all. Events are my exception, especially when Raven is playing with his band. I haven’t missed one of his shows in a long time.

Karen Cino (Contemporary Romance)
"Midnight Encounter"
Alexandra Scaronni pulled her car over to the side of the road.  In the dark she searched through her pocketbook until she found the directions she had hand written earlier.  Just looking at her surrounding, she knew she had made a wrong turn around a half hour ago.

Kathleen Tighe Ball (Cowboy Romance)
Summer couldn’t wait to get back to her cabin. She wanted to look at the information about Stone. If he lived in Montana then why fly out of Texas?

Siobhan Kincade (Paranormal Romance)
Typical wolf, she thought with a smile. He was a bit of a romantic at heart, but in execution he somehow managed to fall short.

Kay Springsteen (Contemporary Romance)
With a strangled cry, Summer gulped the last of the wine in her glass. “Memories” was far too mild a word. The details of sitting for Kyle Sebastian had been burned into her soul with searing kisses and heated touches that had awakened yearnings she hadn’t known existed.

Linna Drehmel (YA Sci/fi PG)
 Natalie stood on the balcony of her privet chamber looking out at the night sky. It was lovely and yet so surreal. The stars were brighter and the patterns in the sky were nothing like she had seen on Earth.
