I’m working away on KYLE (Sterling Falls II)and creeping toward the halfway point with no clue as to what happens next. So I’m minding my business as usual when Liam popped into my head, probably because he popped into the current story. This made me think about including the all new epilogue I wrote for LIAM (Sterling Falls I) in free reads. What do y’all think?

Please leave me a comment, it’d be lovely to hear from someone besides spammers. :heart:

Release day for A Trace of Ivy

April 12, 2016 | Cover art

Here’s a final snippet:

“Thank you.” She stretched up, and he lowered his head. She placed a kiss on his jaw. Whisker stubble prickled against her lips while the brush from the edge of his thick moustache was amazingly soft. She wondered how a real kiss would feel. The strange sensation of something coming to life in her belly happened again, making her nervous and gooey all at the same time. She shook off the fanciful reaction. Now wasn’t the time to try necking.

I added a pretty new cover, tidied up the prose, and lowered the price. A Trace of Ivy is now available at:

Another peek from A Trace of Ivy

Snippet number two from A Trace of Ivy, releasing April 12th:

“I’m tougher than I look. I can walk.” She held herself stiffly, trying to touch him as little as possible and praying her knees would hold if he set her down.

He tightened his grip on her. Not enough to hurt, but enough to remind her that she didn’t have a chance of winning a physical contest. “Let me carry you, please.”

The “please” made her pause and reconsider. Monsters never asked. And they never bothered to say please. Did beasts come in degrees of nasty? Too upset to speak, and with no real choice, she gave him a clipped bob of consent.

“You are a brave Beta.”

The male was crazy. She wasn’t brave, more like a bundle of cowardly nerves. In spite of her disbelief, some of the fear keeping her on edge seeped away at his praise.

He nuzzled her messy hair.

Is he kissing me?

Here’s a snippet from A Trace of Ivy releasing April 12!

Chet held his breath while he examined her, taking care not to jar her. He found no obvious broken bones or open wounds. Scrapes and bruises on her knuckles had started healing. She’d fought hard. In tribute to her courage, he pressed a kiss on the back of her hand. She was frighteningly cold. When he touched a chicken-egg-sized lump at the base of her skull, she drew her limbs tighter and made a small whimper.

A low growl erupted from lips curled back in challenge. His fingernails lengthened and thickened into claws. With his wolf so close to the surface, he had to fight to stop the shift. A primal instinct to pull out a weapon and stand over the small unconscious female dug into him like badger talons.

A Trace of Ivy

The right to publish A Trace of Ivy, Treeland Pack III reverted to me! A newly polished edition will release April 12!

Here’s the new and improved blurb:

Ivy craves Chet as much as she fears him. Embracing the heat between them will either kill her or cure her. Irrevocably bonded, he needs the sweet mercy of her touch to stay sane and falling in love only makes resisting her harder.

Warning this book has an unreasonably possessive alpha male and a sweet beta female with a wide streak of stubborn and much more courage than she believes. There are lots of dark elements, danger, and graphic violence. It’s for mature adults and not the faint-hearted.

I’m hanging out with the hot guys in Sterling Falls. It’s real pretty here and the scenery is nice too. This doesn’t leave me much time for anything else, except feeding my own reading addiction. :lol:

If all goes well KYLE should be available this October.

The Writing Life

A Scarlet Past, like the rest of my titles, is a tale I wrote just for me. I fell in love with Fergus and Vivian while creating A Taste of Scarlet. Eventually succumbed to his demands that I write their romance even knowing pre-World War II erotic romances aren’t exactly hot sellers.

Then something lovely happened, once in a while a reader came across their story and fell in love. Last week this happened again.

Lynleo left a review on All Romance for A Scarlet Past. “A lovely WWII era, thirties noir romance. The author did her research, and the slang and fashions and tech level are right on without being overpowering, flawlessly drawing you into the time period.”

To write the best, truest fiction possible, I can’t allow myself to be swayed by public opinion. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want every book I write to find an audience that falls in love with characters and the story. Of course I do, why else bother to write, polish, and publish the adventures in my head?

A heartfelt thank you to every reader who’s taken a chance on one of my books and special love to those who’ve left reviews. :heart:

Teaser Tuesday

February 9, 2016 | Teaser Tuesday

It’s February and that makes me think about Valentine’s Day and TEY!

Tey lived at the club, a few floors beneath street level, so seeing him was an everyday occurrence. Miranda never outgrew the thrill.

This morning he was as tall, dark, and mouth-wateringly irresistible as usual. A thick black mustache emphasized his lush, cruelly beautiful mouth. Visible beard shadowed his rugged jaw making him look even more devastatingly sexy.

His midnight eyes flickered over her for a half a second. Strongly shaped eyebrows lowered and he nodded in her general direction on his way past.

She took a quick sidestep to avoid collision with the delicious smelling male. Once again, he’d caught her gaping at him. The brief encounter made her pulse race. She responded to him with an intensity no other male—not even another earth demon—evoked.

She ignored her traitorous body. Too late to impress the male with her fake indifference, she inclined her head in the same brief dip he’d given her. Good morning, to you too, Mr. Warm and Fuzzy, Sir.

Liam II

What could be better than a trip to the Crucible and hanging out at the bar with the Masters? Here’s a snippet to warm your day:

Liam’s first impression had been her costume, particularly the tail, was a punishment. Now he downgraded the outfit to a funishment or maybe animal play was their mutual preference.

“She enjoys being his cat.” Guthrie sipped his drink and set it down carefully. His shoulders shimmied like a horse flicking off a fly. “Just looking at that tail stuffed up her butt makes me damn glad I’m not a sub.”

“You and me both.” Liam’s eyes crinkled.

“Your ex’s brother still shows up here now and then. Is that going to be a problem?” Guthrie changed the subject without warning.

“Not at all. Travis likes whipping willing women. The Crucible is the best place for him. He’s too smart to start anything with me. And before you ask, I’m not going to do anything to provoke him. Ashley’s his sister. She can do no wrong in his eyes. Hell, if I had a sister I’d likely feel the same way.”

Guthrie swirled his drink. “Speaking of Ashley, she hasn’t been in since you introduced her to Ray.”

“Sadist/masochist is a classic pairing. I thought they were a sure thing.”

“She disagreed. Ray was seriously disappointed. This is a stellar example of why you ought to leave the matchmaking to pros like me.”
