Christmas has passed, but there’s more to celebrate!

Sidda Lee Rain

Perfect novellas for this time of year! Just because the Christmas holiday has passed us by doesn’t mean there isn’t more to celebrate. Join the Casual Curves characters in FOUR of my favorite holiday reads.

“Sidda Lee Rain creates quirky, gritty, keep it real characters that make her books a real pleasure to read!”    ~Amazon Reviewer 

Trick or Tryst

Thirty-something, curvaceous, single and a…witch? 
Piper hadn’t expected to be practically swept off her feet by a six-foot-three banana—yes, a banana, but that’s pretty damn close to what happened.

When Zander saves her from the one man more sexually forward than the original Willy Clinton? He does more than save her a dry-cleaning bill and a stained dress. 

A drinking game revolving around the movie Sixteen Candles leads them to an entertaining erotic encounter. 

A Casual Curves Halloween meet and greet may have brought them together but it’s the cheesy 80’s movie that will take them to cloud nine.

Champagne and Candy Canes

1st Lt. Dusty Miller had been fairly successful keeping himself away from Sunshine Valley Hospitals spokeswoman Julianna Korentino. 

That is until now…

The curvaceous woman drew him in and that’s a rarity since his injury. A year was more than enough time of denying his attraction to the green eyed beauty. 

But, just when he made up his mind to act on his attraction? She was gone. Her and that sexy as hell red dress she wore to the hospitals Holiday gala.

It would take his own little Christmas miracle to get her luscious body against his own before the night was through.

Lust, Leather and Love

Blaze…even her name is hot as hell.

Sometimes it takes a hard@ss woman to handle a garage full of men, hell, to handle me.
She’s been a godsend to my business but complete torture to my body. 
I’m done watching her from afar-oh there’s no doubt Blaze runs the show. 
That paired with a hilarious personality, curvy body that won’t quit and that don’t screw with me attitude? Has me fully torqued and revving…just waiting for her green light.
Sure, I may be her boss but there’s no question who’s the one in charge.


Trista’s life has revolved around Casual Curves the past few years. A voluptuous girl herself, she’d seen a need for a dating site that catered to curvier women and the men who adore them. 

Her brainchild has been a complete success…her love life, however? Not so much.
She’d been making love connections and setting up meet and greets for all of her members but never joined Casual Curves herself.


Maybe because she’s been waiting for him. Tanner.

Green beer, Irish Pubs, shamrocks everywhere, and the only shade of green he sees are the emerald eyes that haunt his dreams. His Triss.

One night of getting exactly what he’s wanted for so long has panic setting in.

Tanner’s going to need a helluva lot more than a little luck on his side to make things right again.

“Love Love Love! Sidda’s books are my all time favorite and this one does not disappoint. The attraction and sexual chemistry makes you need a cold shower!”                                                 ~Amazon Reviewer

New Series. New Cowboy. New Year.

Happy New Year! I can’t believe 2019 is here! No better time to start a new series.

Tarnation, Texas!


Bo Colt was a liar, cheater and scrooge but the one thing he did right–or rather the five things–he fathered sons. Yet, he wasn’t a daddy…

Growing up without a father, the five Colt sons learned how to be men on their own. They’d written their “seed donor” out of their lives, until they learned that Bo passed and left a few surprises and secrets–and hoops to jump through.

Five brothers who are strangers are given the choice to live together for six months and work their father’s ranch (and businesses) in Tarnation, Texas or lose everything, including their homesteads.

However, that’s not even the beginning. All five must be hitched before the time is up…

Now how does a cowboy, five at that, find a wife in a small town like Tarnation, Texas? Join the Colt brothers in their journey in finding love, brotherhood and forgiveness.

A sweet & sexy, small-town romance .

COMING soon!

Happy New Year from Marie Tuhart

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday if you celebrate.

It’s time for the New Year to roll around and I’ve been busy getting my goals set up for 2019 and looking back at my goals for 2018. The writing has been getting there, I took some detours this year due to calls by publishers, but that’s okay.

I already have the books I’m going to write next year planned out. I’m trying to squeeze in a cowboy series, not sure if it will make it in 2019, but for sure in 2020.

Everyone have a safe and wonderful New Year.

Time for Zeke by Beth Williamson

I’m  republishing the DEVILS ON HORSEBACK series. Book 1, NATE, and book 2, JAKE, are both available in ebook for your reading pleasure. Book 3, ZEKE, releases on December 11. The other two will follow 2019.

The Devils are survivors, men who lost who they were and need to find out who they are now. Each has a journey to make, sometimes full of pain, sometimes full of joy, but each ends with finding the woman who will be a partner and lover. These books are gritty, sometimes violent, and intense. This was the first time I explored issues that veterans have, even those who fought in the Civil War.

I’ve priced NATE at $.99 everywhere – have you picked up your copy yet? If not, why not give the Devils a ride?

How would you like a signed poster of a Naked Cowboys cover?

Want a poster of the cover of Naked Hunger signed by me? Read all about how cowboys got their name, the jokes they tell and leave a comment below. Winner receives A signed copy of the poster below.And be sure to pick up all the Naked Cowboys:



Version #1

The word “cowboy” appeared in the English language by 1725. In the early 1700’s it simply referred to a ‘boy who tended cows’. Later the word described a man who tended cattle on a ranch and went about most of his work on horseback. These skills were then connected to rodeo riders known as cowboys

“Cowboy” appears to be a direct English translation of vaquero, a Spanish word for an individual who managed cattle while mounted on horseback. It was derived from vaca, meaning “cow,” which came from the Latin word vacca.

Version #2

The word “cowboy” (“cow-boy”, “cow boy”) was little seen in the U.S. in the decades before the great surge in cattle drives—prior to the 1870s. The word most commonly associated with America’s greatest folk heroes actually got its beginning in Ireland, and was commonly used in Britain from 1820-1850 where its meaning was quite literal, applying to the young boys tending the cows owned by a family or community. An earlier use by Jonathan Swift in 1725 also refers to nothing more than a boy tending cows.

Cowboy Jokes

What Do You Call Someone Who Wears Cowboy Clothes? Ranch dressin’

What Do You Call A Happy Cowboy? A jolly rancher

Why Did The Cowboy Ride His Horse? Because he was too heavy to carry.

A cowboy rode into town and stopped at a saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals had a habit of picking on strangers, which he definitely was. When he finished his drink, he found his horse stolen. He went back into the bar, handily flipped his gun into the air, caught it above his head without looking, and fired a shot into the ceiling.

“Which one of you sidewinders stole my horse?!?!?!” he yelled with surprising forcefulness. No one answered. “Alright, I’m gonna have another beer, and if my horse ain’t back outside by the time I finish, I’m gonna do what I dun in Texas! And you don’t want me to do what I dun in Texas!”

Some of the locals shifted restlessly. They knew not to underestimate the word of a Texan, especially one who had a few too many beers. The man finished off a few more beers and walked outside where his horse had been returned. He saddled up, and started to ride out of town. The bartender wandered out of the bar and saw the man stumbling to get on his horse. “Say, partner,” he said, “before you go…what happened in Texas?” The cowboy turned back and said, “I had to walk home.”

Happy Halloween by Marie Tuhart

It’s fall and almost winter here in the Pacific Northwest and Halloween is upon us.

While I don’t decorate or hand out candy (there are not enough kids in my area), it’s fun to watch movies like Hocus Pocus, Witches of Eastwick, and The Addams Family. I’m not a horror fan so won’t watch them.

I’ve been busy writing and attending a few local conferences, thank goodness that is over for the year. I have lots of writing still to do.

I signed a contract for books 3 & 4 in the Desert Destiny Series to be published in 2019. Plus I’m working on Legal Temptation book 2 in the McMillan Passion series, and I’m also working on a book for a call my publisher put out. So I’m keeping super busy.

Have a happy Halloween

Happy Halloween & New Release – Marie Tuhar

It’s October which means Halloween. I hope everyone has a happy one and enjoys the holiday.


I have a new release this month: Her Desert Doctor Desert Destiny Series book #1

I’m so excited to have book 2 released, book 3 & 4 will be coming out next year. And book 1 Her Desert Prince is on sale right now.

Her Desert Doctor Blurb:

Sara Fairchild arrives in the small middle eastern country of Bashir to visit her best friend. She’s left her job as a nurse and is looking forward to some down time. But when she’s met at the airport by a handsome, sexy man she wonders if maybe this trip will bring more than relaxation. When she finds out he’s part of the royal family and a doctor, sparks fly.


Hassan al-Hakim is intrigued by Sara from the moment he sees her. As the minister of health and a doctor, he takes his job seriously. Sara challenges him on more than one level and as they spend time together, he finds she enjoys a little kinky bedroom play. Together they explore their attraction in and out of the bedroom.


While external forces try to pry them apart,  they know together they can weather the storms and find their way to love.


          Sara barely hid her surprise at seeing Hassan in the family room. She hadn’t realized he would be here tonight. Catherine had mentioned tonight would be family only, but he must be an extended family member. She was about to ask him when two more men walked into the room.

She bit her lip to prevent a gasp from escaping her lips. Did Anna and Jamal breed gorgeous children as a hobby? All boys, too.

“That is Khalid and Rafi,” Anna said.

“Well, hello there.” Rafi crossed the room and plucked her hand from Hassan’s. “Aren’t you a surprise?” He grinned at Catherine. “Do you have more friends like her?”

“Don’t mind him.” Hassan took her hand from Rafi’s.

Heat flooded Sara’s body Where Rafi’s touch had been pleasant, Hassan’s was like an electric current. Oh, this was so not good. Sara needed to keep her head about her.

“Rafi is the family flirt,” Catherine said.

“Family.” Sara glanced from Hassan, to Rafi, to Malik, and then to Jamal and Khalid. All the men had dark hair anddark eyes, except Hassan, whose eyes were deep blue. “Who are you?”

“Hassan.” Catherine stepped forward, a frown marring her forehead. “You did introduce yourself when you picked Sara up from the airport, right?”

“I did.” His blue gaze captured hers. The heat radiating from his deep blue eyes singed her skin. “But I didn’t tell her I was a member of the royal family.”


Everyone have a great Halloween and enjoy yourselves.

I loved the story, so I’m hoping the things that sparkled for me will be the same for you. Let me know! And if you have time and inclination, I would love it if you told a friend about the story or wrote a review! Reviews are key to readers taking a chance on a story.

I hope it doesn’t take forever for you to read this one. I can’t wait to hear! 🙂 Also, for now, Hook is on Amazon, exclusively, so that I could offer it through Kindle Unlimited. If you are a KU subscriber, you can read it for free! It will be available in print as soon as Amazon completes its internal review, so if you must have a physical copy in your hands, don’t fret!

MONTANA BOUNTY HUNTERS: Authentic Men… Real Adventures…

Former Army Ranger, Dylan “Hook” Hoecker, has a new job along with a new prosthetic arm. Being a bounty hunter is the closest career field he could find as a civilian that gives him the adrenaline rush that is his addiction. So, when his first solo assignment is to keep an eye on a flight risk the boss bonded out of jail, he’s not thrilled. However, he soon discovers a fresh addiction—one mouthy, nerdy redhead, who resists his attempts to keep her out of trouble.

Felicity Gronkowski is grateful for the bone the head of Montana Bounty Hunter threw her. She didn’t have the money to pay for bail, but he has a soft spot for former military, and she bartered to install a new computer system in his satellite office in Bear Lodge. Being on the outside of jail was her first imperative because she has to figure out who framed her for a series of high-end robberies while she worked installing home security systems. However, her bounty-hunting babysitter isn’t giving her any slack. Every time she thinks she’s given him the slip, he’s one step ahead of her. Either she has to find the perfect method of distraction to escape him or she has to enlist his help to clear her name.

Wolf is coming!

In just a month, the next installment of Montana Bounty Hunters will be here! And you can pre-order it now!

Wolf (Montana Bounty Hunter)

MONTANA BOUNTY HUNTERS: Authentic Men… Real Adventures…

Former Marine “Wolf” Patterson is working with a team of MBH bounty hunters in the densely forested Kootenai Forest to bring in one Reese Tobin, a man wanted for arson, who escaped from jail just before his trial. When Wolf catches up to him, Tobin draws a gun, telling Wolf he can’t return to lock-up or he’s a dead man. Just as one of his teammates is about to lunge toward Tobin to take him down, a shot rings out, and Reese is dead.

Former Army Military Police Officer, now Deputy, Meg Henry, was the officer who arrested Tobin, and nothing about that night sat right since. After hearing he was killed, she heads to Kootenai, hoping to talk to the men who were with him last, hoping Tobin told them something that might help her figure out the mystery surrounding him. Because handsome bounty hunter, Wolf, was the last to talk to Tobin, Meg offers Wolf a ride back to the sheriff’s department. They barely begin their conversation when they find themselves running for their lives. Meg doesn’t know who to trust, but she instinctively trusts the tall, intensely attractive Wolf. Together, they work to unravel the mystery while staying one step ahead of someone who wants them both dead.

Heart of a SEAL

Heart of a SEAL

Aislinn Blalock is the lone survivor of the extraction team sent to rescue hostages in Cambodia from the vicious criminal gang holding them for ransom. After her helicopter crashes, she has to stay one step ahead of them to stay alive long enough for a rescue team to get to her.

Ash’s husband Sam watches the mission go sideways on a computer monitor, sidelined by management because one of the team happens to be his wife—but now, there’s no way in hell he’s sitting this one out. He’s getting to Ash before the armed gang can cause her any harm. He’ll risk everything to save the woman who holds his heart.

Purchase it here: Amazon | Nook | iBooks | Kobo

Opening Scene…

What a difference six months made. Aislin Blalock lay in tall grass beside a withered rice paddy, staring up at a clear, starlit sky. A billion pinpricks of light scattered across a dark canvas. No moon, thank God. Beautiful, really. But the distant stars only deepened her sense of unreality. In the distance, she heard metallic creaks and groans, as well as the crackle of fire. She had yet to move, afraid adrenaline was giving her brain the wrong signals, masking the fact she’d been hurt. She had, after all, just fallen from the sky.

Six months ago, she would never have imagined she’d be here in Cambodia in December, participating in a mission to rescue wealthy tourists who’d been kidnapped for the fat ransom their families would pay. She’d been a cop, still suffering the loss of her boyfriend and partner during a robbery. Just met the man who would drag her out of hell and show her love was still possible. That guilt didn’t have to consume her. That she had the right—and the duty—to survive and find happiness. No longer did she drink herself into oblivion for the chance to dream of Marc and pretend he wasn’t gone. Now, she had Sam.


Ash drew a deeper, sharper breath. He hadn’t been happy about her being pulled from her training with Charter to be part of this team, but the company had wanted a woman along, and she was one of the first female operatives they’d hired. He’d been supportive of her decision to apply for a position with his company as a field operative. Naively, she’d believed that being part of Charter, rather than remaining with the New Orleans Police Department, would mean they’d see each other more often. And she’d needed a change. A new job. New home. Without constant reminders of what she’d lost or the time she’d nearly lost herself grieving after Marc’s death. When Charter had tapped her for this mission, she hadn’t hesitated.

Two of the hostages were nuns—not wealthy tourists like the rest. And Charter had decided she’d make the women more comfortable during the rescue and transit. But her team never made it to the drop zone, a click from the kidnapper’s jungle encampment. Although they’d flown well below radar, someone had alerted the well-organized, well-funded group holding the hostages.

Her helicopter had been in the lead. She’d already shuffled toward the open door, ready to drop down a rope when they’d been hit. She’d had a split second to react. Thought she’d heard a voice in her ear, telling her to jump. Marc’s voice, but that had to have been a dream. Her subconscious prodding her to take that leap of faith.

Her landing had been cushioned by deep, soft vegetation. She’d landed on her feet. Sort of. Her bottom making contact a split-second later.

Even if she’d suffered a break or a spinal cord injury she couldn’t yet feel, she was far better off than the men who’d been aboard her helicopter. She’d had time to jump from the left door when the right side of the helo sustained a direct hit from an RPG. The rest of her team, whom she’d met only two weeks before, hadn’t been so lucky.

She drew deep, ragged breaths. Lungs expanded. No hitch, so her ribs were likely fine. Inside her combat boots, she wiggled her toes and felt them scrape hard leather. Time to move. But she was still afraid. After a few wasted moments, at last, she rolled to her right and came up on her knees. Everything appeared to be working, but maybe she’d sustained internal injuries. Gingerly, she dropped her pack and unlatched the cover, feeling inside for her headset. Her hands closed around thin bands. She donned her headset then the night vision goggles, set her mike beside her mouth, and tapped ON, using the team’s call sign to identify herself. All actions were performed by rote, because if she’d had to think, she would have frozen. “Do you read me?”

“Jesus, fuck!”

She almost smiled at hearing Sam’s break with protocol. But his curses, so harsh in her ear, relaxed her. For the moment, she felt his reassuring presence.

“We see one heat signature a distance from the helo. That you, babe?”

“Yes. I don’t think anyone else made it out.”

“The second helo just crossed back into Viet Nam.”

Which meant she was alone. If anything had gone awry with the mission, the pilots had been ordered to return to Charter’s base camp. She swallowed hard to still the panic rising in her throat.

“Are you hurt?”

She heard the soft note of hesitation in his voice. Knew he was bracing for the worst. Not sure, yet. “No,” she said, more firmly than she felt.

“Fuck. More heat signatures. Nine of them. Coming from the West.”

Her stomach clamped. Men from the kidnapper’s encampment. “Roger,” she said, her voice clipped. She knew what she had to do. Run.

“Head northeast. You’ll be in deep jungle. It’ll give you cover.”

She checked the illuminated dial of her wrist compass, took her direction, and pushed up into a crouch. As quickly and as quietly as she could, she streaked toward the tree line.
