Reading life

May 18, 2016 | Real life


I’ve been a reader longer than I’ve been a writer and it’s still one of my favorite things to do. One of the few downsides to this career is that I can’t read the same genre I’m writing. Since I’m writing an steamy thriller that leaves plenty of choices!

The first romances I read were romantic suspense stories. Now I find little in the category that appeals. Some of the authors I started on still write, but the sameness of the plots and even the prose lost my interest as the years passed. Several mystery and fantasy series have suffered the same fate. Pity since many of those authors are amazingly prolific and I’m always searching for new books to read.

I’m the author of the month over on BLA-Book Lovers Anonymous, this means I’m sharing my reading addiction! I started with my favorite comfort reads… It’s a closed group but anyone who loves to read and dish about what they’re reading is welcome.

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:

All Romance


Barnes and Noble

Another peek from A Trace of Ivy

April 5, 2016 | Teaser Tuesday


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

March 22, 2016 | Cover art,Teaser Tuesday


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

February 23, 2016 | Real 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:
