New Releases in Paranormal Romance

I have a treat for you today! Behold, a collection of new paranormal romance titles! All of these books have been released this month. And even better: they are endorsed by the authors’ pets (pictured at the bottom of this post), those faithful friends who watched us slave away at our respective keyboards…and may have jumped on said keyboards, thereby enriching and excitifying (yes it’s a word, no don’t look it up) our lives!

January Releases

Filthy Cowboy, by Liza Street, mom of furbabies Tiny TinderMcSpanks and Luna. When a naive little librarian named Dew comes to the Junkyard, jaguar shifter Stetson cannot resist checking her out and learning about her personal Dew-y decimal system. Because their love is OVERDUE. (Terrible library jokes! But I have no regrets!)

Banshee Power, by Jen Katemi, who is mom to Bobby, a black cat, and Meika, a torty girl. She is determined to ignore her banshee power… until the magic she despises becomes the only thing standing between death, and life, for herself and everyone she cares about.

Noxx: Alien Adoption Agency #1, by Tasha Black, mom to Sookie, a German Shepherd. The Alien Adoption Agency is going to make all of Luna’s dreams come true. At least, that’s what Luna believes when she boards a rickety space craft headed for a frontier moon to meet the child she will raise in exchange for 100 acres of land and a modest stipend. But she doesn’t count on the dangerous animals, the short but lonely nights, or the big blue dragon warrior who informs her he is on permanent security duty for the baby.

Jericho (Hybrid Chronicles is the boxed set paperback, released at the very end of December), by T.K. Eldridge, owner of dogs Ace & Bear and cats Moushie & Mitchie. He had made the ultimate sacrifice…only he wasn’t really dead. Jericho and his team may be a different kind of soldier, but they still hold to their moral codes and honor. Going against a direct order is not something they would normally consider… But nothing about this team is normal.

A Warlock’s Storm, by Marie-Claude Bourque, who is mom to Lucy. Stranded on a boat in a haunted New England harbor, a rugged warlock and a sassy female panther shifter battle sea-monsters and revenants as they try to survive the night.

Heart of the Goddess, by Laura Greenwood, owner of Treacle. Trapped in the last place she wants to be, Hathor risks losing her sense of self. Between convincing Seth there’s nothing going on between her and Amun, plotting her escape, and trying to find out information for the other gods, Hathor has her hands full. But if she can’t work out how to stop Seth’s plan, then the world is doomed.

❤ Annnnd here are the pets! Looking at those beautiful faces, I think it’s pretty safe to say they endorse our books. 😉 (Also please note: Liza’s Luna and Jen’s Meika could easily be sisters!)

Filthy Cowboy is Out Now!

I have been waiting and waiting for this book to come out, and I’m so thrilled to finally be able to give it to you! Stetson has intrigued me from the very beginning of the Junkyard Shifters series. He was a reader, he wore a cowboy hat, and he wasn’t very talkative. To be honest, I knew very little about him until I started writing Filthy Cowboy. It was only through writing his and Dew’s story that I truly discovered who he was–and the man surprised me in many wonderful ways!

And Dew, our quiet librarian heroine, has a frisky side.

Here’s my love list for Filthy Cowboy:

  • poet hero
  • cowboy hero
  • librarian heroine
  • references to The Bachelor
  • a dark backstory
  • scary bad guy!
  • the Junkyard setting

I hope you love Stetson and Dew’s story as much as I do! ❤

Looking Ahead to 2021!

Last week, I mentioned being more of a futuristic-thinking kind of person, and that really is me 100%. I dutifully marked the books published in 2020, and don’t get me wrong, I love all those books! But I’m also way more energetic when I think about the books to come!

Here’s the plan so far (which is, as all things in the future, subject to change):

January 11th: Filthy Cowboy

February 16th: Blood Beast

February 24th: Exes and Exorcisms (with Keira Blackwood)

April 3rd: Lullaby of Death (with Skye MacKinnon)

April 26th: Forbidden Fangs #3 (no title yet) (with Keira Blackwood)

May 10th: Filthy Prince

August 16th: Spellcaster Embraced (with Keira Blackwood)

2021 books

Do I have more planned in 2021 than what’s discussed here? You betcha. But past a few months, things get a little fuzzy, so we’ll stop with these seven books. (Only five are pictured, because I ran out of room in my little graphic, and it’s late at night as I write this so…this is all for now.)

I absolutely want to write more Charmslinger books (I even have a title picked out for Book 3!) and at least one more Junkyard Shifters book beyond Filthy Prince. There are other projects I desperately want to tackle, also, and I struggle daily with the essential pain that I can’t fit more writing hours into each day. Trust me, I’ve tried to write more. The result is migraines and a stiff body and no time with my family. So, slow(ish) and steady is how I have to roll.

Thanks for letting me blather on about the future, because this is my jam! ❤

Writing Update: Filthy Cowboy

Filthy Cowboy is coming out in January, and I’m so excited! Here’s my love list for the book:

  • an innocent librarian heroine
  • a taciturn cowboy hero
  • a dark past
  • scary bad guy
  • references to The Bachelor
  • a couple of librarian jokes made me giggle
  • the hero and heroine were pen pals before they were lovers
  • the hero writes poetry
  • this is the longest Junkyard Shifters book yet! (Only by a couple thousand words, but still!)
