New Eden Chronicles Box Set

March 23, 2015 | Cover art,Real life

Outer Box for set with spines 750x500

The entire New Eden collection is now available in a box set! Dalila’s Choice, Joon’s Temptation, and Camille’s Capture all for the price of single story–$2.99, but only until the set goes live April 3rd, 2015.

This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while and wanted to experiment with, I can’t promise how long the collection will be available. I learned a lot putting this together, which took waaaaaaay longer than expected. Apparently it’s impossible for me to open up a doc without editing. Insert picture of me rolling my eyes here.

The upside is every time I work on a title it improves.

For those new to dangerously sexy adventures, the New Eden Chronicles are all a little bit space opera and a whole lot erotic romance. Each story features a different Earth woman and a pair of mostly human alpha males, whose happily ever after is complicated by all sorts of trouble. My favorite kinda of love story and perennial best sellers with readers.

Snippet from COLIN, Demon Hunters I

December 22, 2014 | Real life,Uncategorized

Colin 500 x 750

Today is the last day to pick up a free copy of COLIN, here’s another peek to entice you!


Colin tied the ribbon Diane had given him around Holly’s slender throat. The thin line of color marked her as taken—his. He loved how her lips were wet and swollen from his kiss. He loved the way she responded to him with total, helpless, surprised, submission. He loved how her abundant curves felt against his raw needs. And he hated not being able to read her. Touching hadn’t made even a crack in her impenetrable thought shield. He also hated being wrong.

In addition to not being able to read a single idea in her beautiful head, he had new problems. Her mouth was an oasis of pleasure in his barren life. Her silken tongue carried a seductive flavor of hot cocoa with a touch of cool mint. He should never have tasted her sweetness. Now it would be twice as hard to maintain his distance. But he had to; there was too much at stake, including her life.


May your holidays be filled with dangerously sexy delights!

The mysterious case of the missing royalty checks from Ellora’s Cave Continued

September 30, 2014 | Real life


Earlier this month I wrote about not getting paid and asked readers not to buy my Ellora’s Cave titles. Here’s the link to that post in case you missed it. I removed the covers and excerpts for those books because there’s no way I’m promoting a publisher who’s selling my work and not paying royalties due.

There’s also nothing practical I can do to stop them.

I’m not wasting any more of my time and energy on something I can’t control. What I’m doing is writing the best stories I possible can and giving daily thanks I’m living my dream–writing for a living. :heart:

Meanwhile back in the real world…

July 22, 2014 | Real life

When I first started writing for publication I spent every spare hour tapping away at the keyboard blissfully unaware there would ever be anything else involved. All those boring bits, edits, covers, formatting,and marketing were handled by expert specialists. This was actually fairly true for my early works. Cover art with no relationship to the story, glaring text errors–all mine :blush: and formatting that jarred the reader’s tender eyes left me weeping in frustration, desperate for a chance to improve the publication process.

Now I spend hours designing covers, revising, editing, proofing, formatting, and marketing those same books. To my amazement, none of these tasks are a bit boring. Every pass with a manuscript improves the story and that’s still my driving force–a passion to give readers the best story I possibly can.

New Eden Chronicles

May 27, 2014 | Real life

writer at work a

A few years ago when I begin writing Camille’s Capture I debated setting the story in same storyverse as Dalila’s Choice and Joon’s Temptation. I’d changed publishers and decided to create a new world for Camille although her adventure followed Joon’s in my head.

Now and then I do remind myself this is fiction, but I live in an alternate reality peopled with friends I know better than I do anyone in my “real” life. The decision to change worlds never felt quite right.

After the rights to all three stories reverted to me, I considered revising the setting of Camille’s Capture to match the first two installments in the series, but that didn’t click either. As I worked on revising Joon’s Temptation, which entailed changing parts of Dalila to make the reality more cohesive, it hit me Camille’s world is the most fully realized. So I made the necessary changes to Dalila and Joon’s stories. Now all three books are set in the lush tropical paradise of New Eden. Another benefit of indie projects–the stories are ever evolving and never ending. :heart:
