Savage Redemption, Coming Soon

paranormal romance book

Advance review copies have gone out and now I’m waiting…waiting…waiting. Savage Redemption releases on November 6th, so if you live in the US, you will hopefully go vote, and then buy your very own copy to read! (Or buy your copy first, and then vote. Either way–I won’t be picky about your process.)

While we wait, here’s a little excerpt from the book!

She reached for him again, caressed his biceps and tugged him toward her. He lowered himself onto the mattress. All his dreams were coming true in this moment. Now that he had her in his bed, what would he do with her first?

Please her. Make her want more. Make her want to stay.

Stuff I Love: Lost Girl

lost girlIn the Facebook reader group I run with Keira Blackwood and Tori Knightwood, Paranormal Paramours, a bunch of us started talking about Lost Girl. I can’t remember how or why–it probably started with a gif that I was clueless about, which is how I often discover television shows and movies I’ve missed!

At any rate, the “hook” of the series got me right away–the heroine of the show is a succubus named Bo and she fights fae crime. Heck yes! I had to check it out.

What I love about this show is the mystery, the magic, and Kenzi. All the characters, really, but Kenzi just makes me smile.

Right now I’m nearing the end of Season 2. I’m pacing myself and watching an episode a day while I eat my lunch. It’s a lot of fun and I’m totally shipping Kenzi and Hale, and if nothing comes of that, I’ll be searching for fanfic because I reallllly want to see them together!

It’s kind of bizarre coming late to a show that everyone has already watched, when spoilers abound on the internet (yeah, I accidentally found out how the end of Season 4 goes), but it’s also a chill and stress-free way to watch a series.

How about you? Have you seen it? Is the best still yet to come for me in this series?

Halloween Between the Sheets – A Reverse Harem Anthology

Keira Blackwood and I are so thrilled to have a scene included in this anthology! The subtitle says it all: “A reverse harem anthology of scenes that get to the point.” This anthology is full of steamy pages to keep your October nice and hot. 🙂

Below is a little teaser from Keira’s and my scene:

“Everything okay?” Taylor asked, moving from my lips to my jaw and down to my neck. He licked and kissed the spot that always drove me crazy, and I tightened my legs around his waist.

Slade’s arms came around from the back, cupping my breasts underneath the loose fabric of my gown.

“Mm-hmm,” I replied, half to the question, half to the sensation. And everything was all right. We were safe, Slade, Taylor, Quentin, me, and the little lima bean in my belly. It was still hard to believe the pregnancy was real. There was a tiny dragon shifter in there. Growing, thriving.

I slid down Taylor’s body, ready to get undressed. While Taylor pulled down the sleeves of my gown, Slade pressed kisses to my bare back. The fabric of my dress pooled at my feet and I stood before them in my lacy blue thong and iridescent white heels.

Reaching down, I started inching my fingers toward the front of Slade’s kilt. His eyes fluttered shut as I tugged at the fabric. “Off,” I said.

His hands were a blur as he unfastened the kilt and let it fall to the floor.

I’d seen him naked every day for a year, but I still stared in awe each time he stripped as if it were the first glimpse. I allowed my gaze to linger, taking in every inch of muscular, tan skin, before looking over to Taylor.

His green eyes were dark with anticipation.

Their scents surrounded me, and I gladly breathed them in–hazelnut, metal, and fire.

I reached for the white faux-fur of Taylor’s red suit and unfastened the buttons, slowly starting from the top.

Slade kissed my neck as I worked to undress Taylor. His lips left a burning trail of desire on my skin, and my hands shook as I fumbled with Taylor’s buttons.

“Next year,” I murmured, breathing heavily, “next year you have to wear less clothes for your costume.”

5 Hockey Romances You Don’t Want to Miss

So, I write paranormal romance, right? And I looooove to read it. But every now and then I get an itch to read a sports romance, and hockey is my go-to sport. I know absolutely nothing about it, and that doesn’t seem to matter!

Here are five books that I loved!

The Score, by Elle Kennedy

This one is third in a series, and every book in the series is super super great. In order, they are The Deal, The Mistake, The Score, and The Goal. I can’t recommend them strongly enough! The Score, however, had a hilarious scene that I have read multiple times because I laugh out loud over it. Even thinking about it now, I break into a grin. This book also made me cry, and I don’t often cry at books, so…good work, Ms. Kennedy.

The Year We Fell Down, by Sarina Bowen

You know how I said I don’t usually cry over books? Well, this is another exception! The heroine in this book was in a terrible accident and now uses a wheelchair. Her journey, along with the hero, was really touching. Go read this one. Like, drop everything and do it now.

Dominic, by Kat Mizera

Sometimes I want some good ol’ suspense in my romances. This one wasn’t a new adult book like the other two, but the suspense in the story line kept me going. Also, there’s an age difference where the heroine is older than the hero (yaaass!) and a bit of a Cinderella, make-over vibe, which is one of my guilty pleasures.

Hard Hitter, by Sarina Bowen

Yeah, I know Sarina Bowen has another book listed above, and I thought of leaving this one off the list, but…I can’t. This was such a great hockey romance. Steamy, funny, touching, with an element of healing because the heroine is a massage therapist. Also a suspenseful element, which I’m almost always a fan of!

Hot as Puck, by Lili Valente

This one I read just a few weeks ago. What I liked about it was that it was a super sexy friends-to-lovers story and just aaahhhhh. So enjoyable. Most of the conflict here is internal, so expect quite a bit of angst. If angst isn’t your thing, well, the super sexy sexytimes will more than make up for it.
