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!

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

If this doesn’t add up to 311, well…there’s a reason I’m an author and not a math teacher. 😉

Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey! ❤ I don’t know what this means for future paranormal romance novels, except I’m guessing maybe quite a few of you (87) might be interested in seeing a dragon shifter character again at some point. Keira Blackwood and I wrote them into the Spellbound Shifters: Dragons Entwined series, as well as into our standalone reverse harem romance, Hope Reclaimed.

I also have plans for more wolves, bears, and big cats, and I will definitely consider others!

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!
