Here’s what I loved about this book:

  • writing with Keira (this is a total joy)
  • the antagonist is super gross and creepy, but also funny
  • the hero, Declan, is afraid of creepy-crawlies
  • the heroine, Daphne, has a can-do-it, positive attitude
  • the love between Declan and Daphne was just so freaking sweet. At times they wanted to yell at each other, and other times they wanted to tear each other’s clothes off

Overall, I had the best time writing this book, and I hope you love it, too!

Ruthless Rogue – Available Now!

Ruthless Rogue is out today! This one features a book seller heroine. She was a blast to write, because I once worked in a book store much like the one she owns.

Here’s an excerpt that shows her at an estate sale, looking into buying some used books for her store.

“Ah,” Koffman said. “Well, I suppose you want to see the books?”

“Very much,” Faith said with a smile.

She followed Koffman down the hall. It was filled with furniture—plush chairs, dining chairs, a large dining room table that spanned a good six feet. There were tea carts and ornate shelves, two china cabinets, plus divans and sofas and even some bed headboards. Eleazer Manford had been a rich old man, and it showed.

“We thought it would be best to bring the furniture all to the first floor,” Koffman said in explanation. “That way people don’t have to hunt through the house.”

“How many stories are there?” Faith asked.

“Three, with a generous basement. That’s where Mr. Manford kept his books.”

“In the…basement?” Faith asked. Her expectation of a gleaming library might need a slight adjustment. “I hope it was controlled for temperature and humidity?”

Koffman gave a loud, braying laugh. When Faith didn’t join in the merriment, Koffman turned to face her. “You were serious?”

“I thought…I thought I was coming to look at…at the books of a rich misanthrope who cared for nothing but his ancient tomes.” It sounded like a romantic and silly notion with Koffman blinking at her in surprise.

“No, I’m sorry,” Koffman said. “You have the misanthrope part correct, but this is the library of his wife, who predeceased him by some forty years. He moved her books to the basement.”

Faith’s shoulders fell. She’d gotten up early for this. She’d been looking forward to this opportunity for months. And now she’d be sorting through boxes of books with moldy pages and crumbling bindings, likely full of booklice. If there was anything good in the mix, Faith would likely have to either invest time in restoring it herself, or, more likely, pay for the books to be restored by an expert.

“Well, this way,” Koffman said, continuing along.

Faith thought of returning to her car, driving home, and hiding in her bed with her copy of Renegade Player, but that wasn’t professional. She at least had to give this collection a chance.

She followed Koffman down a set of concrete stairs. To Koffman’s credit, she’d set up several bright floor lamps; the single bulb from the ceiling wouldn’t have been enough to see anything down here.

Faith shivered in the chill, but immediately walked to one of the large folding tables which had been set up. Cardboard file boxes sat atop them, some of the corners splitting, some stained with damp.

This was a crime—this was an outrage. No book deserved to be treated this way. Even Moby Dick, which was one of the worst books Faith had read, did not deserve to be stored like this. Faith was tempted to dig up old Eleazer and bring him back to life, just so she could slap him around a bit.

Orphan Entangled – Newly Released

Just last week, Savage Penance was released, and I’m back here celebrating with another book already!

orphan entangled 19

Orphan Entangled is a reverse harem retelling of The Jungle Book. Imagine if Mowgli was a young woman raised by a pack of shapeshifting wolves, and Baloo and Bagheera were freaking hot grizzly and panther shifters. (We gave them all new names, so you won’t have to worry about envisioning any childhood cartoons singing and dancing during the suspenseful scenes or sexytimes!)

Please note, this book was previously published as part of the Fated Mates anthology back in June. There are no significant changes to it.

You can get your copy on your favorite retailer!

Apple Books

B&N

Kobo

Amazon

Universal Link

Also, we’re already talking to Phoenix McKay, who narrated the audiobook for Hope Reclaimed, about narrating this one as well!

Savage Penance – Out Now!

I’m so excited to announce that Savage Penance is now available through your favorite bookstores! You can snag a copy on Apple Books, B&N, Kobo, Google Play, or Amazon…or all of them, if you like switching between e-readers. 😉 Click the image below for the universal link, which will magically whisk you to your favorite retailer, or, if you haven’t set up your favorite, it’ll show you the options.

Never have a one-night-stand with a shifter.

1) They’re intense, growly lovers and they bite—hard

2) You risk them claiming you as their “fated mate” and never leaving you alone again

3) Even if you manage to get rid of the guy, you might be carrying his baby

Gwyneth knew better. She could tell right away that Doug was a shifter, but it didn’t matter. He was too hot to let go. One night of fun never hurt anybody, right?

Well, she was right about one thing—it was only one night.

As soon as Doug knew Gwyn was pregnant, he did what any douchey, malcontented, irredeemable shifter would do—he ran fast and he ran far.

But when his inner mountain lion drives him back into Gwyn’s arms, Doug learns that danger waits at every turn. Wooing his mate and learning how to be a good father are the least of his worries.

If you haven’t already purchased a copy of the previous book in the series, Savage Redemption, now would be a GREAT time for that, because it’s on sale for 99 cents for the next few days! Click here for the universal link for Savage Redemption.

Ready for Some Magic and Mayhem?

Magic and Mayhem is out today! Keira Blackwood and I have a book in this anthology, and it’s part of our Spellbound Shifters: Fates & Visions series. It’s the beginning of Wren Solaris’s journey.

magic and mayhem spellcaster hidden

This is an excerpt from Spellcaster Hidden…because what could be more fun in a magical academy, than a magical version of Spin the Bottle? In this game, people toss a ball of light back and forth. If it turns red, the person who threw the ball and the person who caught it have to kiss, or they suffer some magical consequences. In the excerpt, our heroine has just caught a ball thrown by her teacher’s assistant.

SH teaser 1

There was no time to think. Instinctively, I reached out and caught the ball.

It turned red. Everyone cheered.

I hazarded a glance at Maxwell.

He looked absolutely revolted.

Well, that stung more than a little.

I didn’t know how to get rid of the ball. If I threw it really fast, maybe the magic would move on.

My palm started to itch. In the glowing red light of the ball, it looked redder than it should have. The itch turned into heat, and a burn. I was determined to suck it up. I’d let my whole freaking hand fall off before I kissed some asshole who was so obviously repulsed by me.

“Kiss, kiss, kiss!” everyone chanted.

Jace was staring at me, his eyes wide. “That has to hurt,” he called.

It did. It hurt like a motherfucker. My eyes were watering, but I blinked back the tears. Fire was nothing to my pride.

Suddenly, Maxwell was standing right in front of me.

“Morgan,” he said, his voice mocking.

Damn him, he wasn’t giving any sign that he was hurt.

“I need your consent,” he whispered. The expression in his blue eyes was turbulent—dislike, desire.

He didn’t like me, yet I could tell he wasn’t repulsed by me. He wanted me. Infuriating man. Maybe giving me a bland peck on the lips was just the punishment he deserved.

Feeling pissy and contrary, I said, “Yes, you have my consent.”

The kiss was not bland like I’d expected—far from it. It was bruising and punishing—there was nothing sweet or soft as his lips met mine. They moved against me in a way that made me sigh into him. Taking advantage of my parted lips, he swiped his tongue against them. I opened more, and gripped his arms as if holding him in place. He tasted like cinnamon, fiery sweet.

Keira and I put together a game where you can spin a wheel to find out which of the leading men in Spellcaster Hidden you’ll kiss first! It’s not quite as fun as throwing around a glowing magical ball, but it’s the closest we can come. 🙂 Check it out by clicking here, and let us know who you won!
