Filthy Wolf is Available Now!

Aaaahhhh I love this couple, you guys! Marcus and Jessica are just so funny and sweet and sexy together. I had the best time writing their dialogue.

070820 PP JS2 teaser 1

It wasn’t just Jessica’s question that had sent Marcus running—it was her scent, her smile, her curves. It didn’t matter that she was in the Junkyard against her will, by a total accident. He wanted her.

And fuck if that didn’t make him an even worse person than he’d felt before.

A helpless human woman was trapped in the Junkyard and he was no better than the other pricks in here, half-hard all the time just from the sweet floral scent that rose from her skin like some kind of drug.

This all-encompassing desire was going to be the death of him, he was sure of it.

An Ode to Legacies

Legacies was one of those shows that I added to my Netflix queue and ignored for several weeks. One afternoon during my lunch break, I decided I was tired of scrolling past it. Just a few minutes I would watch, and then, I hoped, I wouldn’t like it and could remove it from the queue.

Nope. I was hooked. I didn’t binge the entire season in two days or anything, but it obsessed me for the better part of two weeks, when I looked forward to every lunch break so I could watch an episode. Or sometimes an episode and a half. Or maybe a little more if I was feeling super self-indulgent.

Here’s what I loved about it:

There’s a magical academy!

As a fan of Harry Potter, I was stoked to see all the magic stuff, and all these students with powers. Seeing the school, having everyone there together to learn and develop their magic and control their powers, kept me riveted.

High school and teenager drama.

I thought I would hate it, but it sucked me right in. People get mad at each other, there’s all this lust and angst, and it’s just fun because it’s so far removed from what I’m experiencing now in my late thirties.

Cool abilities.

Witches, vampires, and werewolves all have their own unique subcultures within the school, and I thought it was awesome.

Tragic and fascinating backstories.

So I came to Legacies before watching The Vampire Diaries or The Originals, and I didn’t realize they were connected until partway through this first season of Legacies. Probably I missed some things, but it didn’t bother me very much. What I loved was that there was more to these characters than what I was being shown. Things were hinted and teased. You can bet I went straight from this to The Originals.

Friendship, forgiveness, sacrifice.

Yes, the angsty teenage drama might make it seem superficial or bring the stories into melodrama, but I was totally into it because of the larger (and yeah, glaringly obvious) themes of friendship, forgiveness, and sacrifice. There’s a lot to unpack with such a huge ensemble cast, with betrayals as well as petty grievances, and then the arcs of reconciliation as well.

Season 2

This is already airing on the CW, but I have to wait for Netflix. I’m so looking forward to it!

All the Shifter Round-Ups in One Place

shifters

Throughout the year, I’ve been rounding up books with specific shifters–dragon shifters in one round-up, wolves in two others, big cats, and (coming soon) bears. It’s been a blast to see what other authors are creating and add new books to my TBR list.

To keep them all together (a round-up of round-ups, if you will), I made a single page for them here on the site.

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!
