CoverWill his call of duty break both their hearts?

Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph’s only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.

Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.

When faced with the realization that she’s fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?

“You never answered my question,” Brandon says.

The movie ended an hour ago, but we haven’t moved from the couch. I’ve never understood why couples make out in the backseats of cars. Couches are so much more comfortable.

“Which question was that?”

“Who could you date?”

“Hmm.” I pretend to ponder. I mean, really, shouldn’t it be obvious by now? “Someone who is kind-hearted. Someone who walks old ladies to the door of the coffee shop. Someone who looks sexy in a paisley apron.”

He smiles. “What about a Kentucky Wildcats fan? Could you date one of those?”

It’s a fair question, considering my Indiana roots and my love for Hoosier basketball.

I wrinkle my nose. “I suppose.”

“Good to know.”

—————————————————–

 

Excerpt #8:

“How was your run?”

Brandon sits down beside me. “It was good. Why are you up so early?”

“I love the Kentucky sunrise. I’m going to miss it.”

“I’ll miss it, too.”

“I was just wondering if a Georgia sunrise would be just as pretty.”

“I don’t see how.”

I smile. “And the bed was cold.”

“Steph, it’s summer.”

“The bed was still cold.”

He grins and leans over, kissing me on the cheek.

“I guess I need to get used to it, huh? Cold beds, I mean.”

Brandon dips his head and kisses my shoulder. “I’m afraid so. For the next twelve weeks, anyway.”

“And after that?”

I shouldn’t ask, because I know the answer. After that, if I want a warm bed, we’ll have to get married.

The United States Army won’t let us live in sin.

————————————————————–

Excerpt #10:

 

Steph suddenly lifts herself up, straddling my waist and sliding her hands along my stomach. Another flash of lightning in the sky shows me what she’s wearing.

It’s my Princess Bride T-shirt, the same one I was wearing the day we met in class.

“Nice shirt.”

“Thanks. I stole it from your closet before you left. I’ve slept in it every night.”

“Thief.”

With a sly grin, she leans down and kisses me again.

“You’ve stolen my clothes. Stolen my heart.”

Steph smiles against my lips.

“There’s something else I want to steal,” she whispers.

I slide my hands along her back, pulling her closer to me as I raise myself up. Wrapping her arms around my neck, she melts against me when I bury my face against her neck.

“I’ll give you anything, Steph.”

“Anything?”

”Whatever you want.”

I lift my head and find her eyes, deep and dark and full of tears. All of her earlier playfulness is gone as she places her palm against my cheek.

“I want your last name.”

Loving Dangerously, Book Fourdangerouslyhis_msr

Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. Shewill be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.

The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.

Inside Scoop:  This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.

Excerpt:

“Saia.”

The sound of someone calling her name pulled Saia from her dream. Opening her eyes, she scanned the empty room.

“Saia, are you up?”

She squinted through the darkness. The suns were still down. The night was quiet and still.

Who’s in my room? “Who’s there?” she called out.

“Saia. Saia! Wake up.”

JB? Is he here?

“Saia,” he called again.

Communication link.

She followed the noise to her com-link sitting on the small table by her bed. She held down the button so JB could hear her when she spoke. “Hello?”

She heard him let out a long sigh. “Hi.”

“Hi.”

“Are you up?”

“I am now.”

“Oh, sorry. You were probably asleep. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Nice going, JB.”

She lay back and cradled the com-link in her hand. “No harm done. Why aren’t you asleep?”

“I tried, but I can’t.”

“Why not? If you’re having trouble sleeping you should try shikor. It has calming properties in it.”

“It’s not that. I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I don’t want to take anything that would make me stop thinking about you—ever.” His voice slurred with his words.

He was drunk, but she didn’t care. She couldn’t control the grin that stretched across her face. Or the way her heart fluttered at the very thought of him thinking about her. “You were thinking of me?”

“I was. I mean, I am. Were you thinking of me?”

“Really? I thought you would have been thinking about the females who were hanging on you at dinner.”

She remembered seeing the two humans fawning all over him. To his credit, she did see him trying to push them away. But as determined as they were, they didn’t seem to want to budge. She tried not to pay attention but couldn’t pull her eyes away.

“Those weren’t…I mean…I used to hang out with them, but that was before I met you.”

“And then what?”

“And then I haven’t been able to think about anyone else since.”

“I admit that I was thinking of you before I fell asleep.” She chewed on her bottom lip. Why had she confessed that?

“You were?” His voice was filled with hope and joy.

That’s why. “Yes.” She pulled a pillow over her face to muffle the happy yell that erupted from her.

“Meet me in the common room.”

She pulled the pillow away. “No! I can’t do that.”

“Why not?”

“My brother might find out.”

“Oh yeah, right. Let me come to your room then.”

“Absolutely not. That would be even worse.”

“I’ll be like a stealth ninja. No one would even know that I’m there.”

“I don’t know what a ninja is, but I highly doubt that even that would elude the detection of Ship.”

“I forgot about him. How about the royal gardens? Meet me there.”

“He can go outside as well, although he really doesn’t like to.”

JB hiccupped. “But I want—I have to see you.”

“Well…he doesn’t go outdoors unless he has a reason. I’m sure he has better things to do than follow me around. If he does show up, you’d be able to see him.”

Although Ship’s species was thought to be invisible to the naked eye, it was discovered when Eva came to Sonis that humans could see him. He appeared as a purple haze to Eva. At first she’d thought there was something wrong with her eyesight. It had taken a while for her to realize it was Ship she was looking at and not some anomaly.

“Why do you want to meet with me so badly?”

“I just want to talk with you.”

“We are talking.”

“Okay, I admit. I want to feel you again.”

“JB!” Heat crept across her cheeks as she said his name.

“No, not that way. Your skin felt so soft, so perfect. I want to see if it was real or if I dreamt it.”

Saia sighed. “I can’t meet you anywhere this late. It’s not proper.”

“I understand. I’m drunk and I’m being too forward.”

She put a hand over her eyes. “But I can meet with you tomorrow after I visit Jess and Rasha’s new dwelling.” Oh Ancients.

“Yes!” She heard his yell peal through the link.

She grabbed and held the pillow tight to her chest. “Bye, JB. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Goodnight, beautiful Saia.”

Bio: Alex Carreras believes there is nothing sexier than a hot, naked man with a cocky attitude and a sultry smile.

Always on the hunt for inspiration, you will find Alex wherever there are attractive men, hopefully in a state of undress. And since he lives in South Florida where the average yearly temperature is a balmy 82 Fahrenheit, there is certainly no shortage of inspiration.

AstrallyYoursCoverAReCaeli Aferrum found himself in the Midwest unsure what to expect from the human race.

He was searching Earth for a partner he could call his own along with some of his brethren. After a few beers and a name change to, Kyle he found the curious creatures full of questions. They appeared less scary and a whole lot sexier, especially the one named Hank.

When Hank Cutter entered Rascals Bar the last thing he expected in his small town of North Fork, Kansas was to meet a man. There was only one gay man in town and that happened to be him. He finds himself faced with a startling truth: Kyle is actually a Ferrumis in search of a mate he intends to have for life on the spacecraft Fronza, a stolen Thorean ship manned by seven other aliens who are roaming the galaxy with no particular destination in mind. He knew love came in many different shapes and sizes, but did his have to have a smooth metallic-colored tail and a set of razor sharp fangs?

Can their love span species lines and quench the growing lust in Caeli in time to save him from his Needing? Or will Hank deny his growing feelings to stay safe and sound on good ol’ planet Earth?

Bio: About Lea Barrymire

Lea lives in Western New York with her hubby, three children, and miscellaneous critters. Before the rugrats, she lived a life of adventure, following her husband all over Europe with the US military. She’s slept in a car outside Paris, drove six hours just to see tulips in the Netherlands, and knocked ash from her shoes at Pompeii. Now she spends her time in life’s adventures at soccer games, PTA meetings and school plays.

Lea has loved reading from a very young age, spending many sleepless nights devouring books. Science fiction and paranormal were her favorite genres to read as a teenager, and that love bled into her adult life. She started writing during a bout of insomnia, to fill time, and found it filled a creative void. Now she communes regularly with the characters in her head and tries not to laugh out loud when they say something funny.

When Lea isn’t reading, writing or corralling kids, she enjoys watching movies and sciencey shows, or just kicking back and listening to some music.

ForeverCaptiveAReLuke has given up the idea of finding someone to spend his life with, at least until he’s no longer working for his uncle and living in a small town. When his eyes meet those of a sexy stranger after a hockey game he’s almost tempted to listen to his friends. They’d been urging him to give in and find a man to share some intimacy with. Luke’s ideals don’t mesh well with the idea of a one-night stand.

Sycita isn’t an ordinary human looking for a man to sate his lusts. He’s not a human at all. Walking into the ice rink had been the best thing he could have done while searching for a male to use during his Needing. What Syc didn’t expect was the draw to not only bed but to keep the human male.

Can the two lovers conquer their differences, their burning lust and their families to find some semblance of happy ever after?

Hey Stranger

Um, so it feels like forever since I blogged. For some reason, I just can’t seem to come up with anything interesting to write about in terms of me.

Are y’all still here? If so, thank you so much! How’s life been treating y’all?

You know how things just sort of go crazy. You have a set plan in place, a goal in mind that you’re bound and determined to follow and then BLAM! fate throws you a curveball? That’s what it’s been like for me. After the release of Touched by Lightning, I’ve been dodging curveball after curveball. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been ogling sexy men over on Facebook because y’all know that’ll happen no matter what.

But for about three months my creative energy was gone. Oh I tried to write, tried to pretend I was going to have a story finished by April and another finished in May. I even had a spreadsheet with all of my ideas and schedules planned out. Then real life intruded, bold and brash, bullying my muse. Between the EDJ and family crises, my muse was whimpering like a whipped puppy.

Things aren’t better, but they aren’t worse either. I’m starting to finally (slowly) get a handle on things. None of those things that’ve been holding me back have gone away. If anything, they’ve gone from schoolyard bullies to massive giants stomping all over everything, but my muse is fighting back. She wants to write stories with happy endings (and not just of the sexual kind heh). She wants to exert a little control over something even if it’s an imaginary world.

So saying that, I’ve just finished a short story for an upcoming box set called Brought to His Knees. I’m going into this awesome undertaking with ten other authors: A.M. Griffin, Amy Ruttan, Anya Richard, Sabrina York, Sayde Grace, Jennifer Kacey, Felice Fox, Cynthia d’Alba, Tina Donahue and Lynne Silver. I have to say, it’s pretty amazing what eleven determined authors can accomplish and I really think this box set will have something for everyone’s tastes. My contribution to this set is the next story in my Southern Sin series. Don’t worry, we’ll be having a huge book cover reveal and prizes and… you know what? How about y’all follow our Facebook page to find out what’s going on next? We’re having takeovers, giveaways, you name it and we have it 😉

Brought To His Knees

And starting soon, possibly even today (shocker!) I plan to start a series that’s been driving me insane for the last two months. Maybe it has to do with all of the stress that’s built up since January, but I’m going dark and grim with this new series. Oh don’t worry, I still plan to write my shifters in the Cajun Heat series and stories in my Grand Terre world, but a writer’s got to write where the muse allows her, right? 😉

I’m going to try a lot harder to blog more often, but I’m not promising anything because when I do… 😉

So how about y’all? How has everyone been?

A Romantica® sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Excerpt:

“Oh Jesus.”

If it weren’t for the tone in Jess’ voice, Saia wouldn’t have been pulled from watching the human male across the room.

Jess placed a hand across her eyes and shook her head slowly.

“Pardon me?”

Jess groaned. “Please, please look at something else.”

Saia let her gaze go back to the male. His black hair was cut short. His blue eyes were framed with an abundance of dark lashes. Light seemed to dance in his eyes as he smiled in her direction.

Is he smiling at me?

She took a quick peek left then right

He’s smiling at me!

Her heart leapt for joy. His graceful smile was only for her. She giggled and placed a hand over her mouth.

“He won’t be satisfied until he’s dead,” Jess muttered.

She turned to Jess. “What are you talking about?”

Jess watched the male across the room as well. But instead of smiling, she made a slow motion across her neck with a finger. “I’m referring to the slow death he’s sure to get if he keeps flirting with you.”

Flirting?

She turned back to the male. No one had ever flirted with her. She smiled again.

“Good gracious, don’t encourage him!”

“Do you know him?”

“Unfortunately, yes.” Jess rolled her eyes. “Maybe I should start saying that I knew him.”

The lights turned low, signaling the beginning of the dinner entertainment. The voices in the dining hall became hushed. Saia strained her eyes to make out the silhouette of the human.

Slow, rhythmic drums began to beat. Light shone from the stage door. One torch, then two, then three, until finally there were six. In the darkness, the torches zipped through the air, swung in circles, tossed and caught.

Every now and again, she could catch a glimpse of him and found that he still watched her as well.

Her heart seemed to thump in time with the drums. His smile had dropped but his stare was intent just the same. His gaze seemed to bore through her. Right to her soul. And she found she enjoyed it.

She leaned over to whisper, “Tell me his name.”

Jess shook her head. “Ignore him like I do most days and watch the show.”

Ignore him? She couldn’t. “But I want to know his name.”

Jess looked at her. “Listen, Princess Saia, this can’t happen.”

“What can’t happen?”

“You and JB. Taio would never allow it. You’re getting married and JB’s going back to Laconia. I’m trying to keep him alive at least until then.”

  1. She turned to look at him again.

Jaybee. What a wonderful name.

“Argh, can you at least get that dreamy look off your face?”

“Is he a slave?”

“No.”

“Is he bonded?”

“No.”

“Can you introduce me to him?”

“Absolutely not.”

“Why?”

Jess raised a brow. “Have you seen the size of your brother?”

Jess was right. Taio was extremely protective of her. That was the very reason why she could never tell him their father had long been striking her and her mother. And she couldn’t forget that she was contracted to bond with Ranuit Pi.

And just like that, an overwhelming sense of dread had ahold of her once again.

There could be no flirting. No smiles from across the room as she’d heard described on many occasions from people who had fallen in love. Her fate belonged to someone else.

Working WoMan

It’s only Wednesday but it’s already been a chaotic week. I’ve developed a frown line since at least the beginning of the year and it’s deep. I’ve been experimenting with different brooding/frowny faces that won’t make it bigger, but every time I find myself frowning, it’s always this “WTF” look on my face, eyebrows raised and forehead all furrowed. Because that’s the way I tend to look for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Meh. I have exciting stuff going on in my writer’s life, but I’ve been so exhausted from the EDJ that I barely even enjoy that part of my life. I haven’t written since Sunday I think. *think* Or Saturday? I can’t remember. The only really good thing is that I’m halfway through the story I need finished before the end of the month. Yay.

Yeah, I’m so tired I can’t even write a long post today. My brain is back in my bed dreaming of work. Because apparently that’s what I do now. I don’t dream of being the meat in a Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel sandwich. I dream about my day job.

Can someone please tell the weekend to get here soon? Yeah, thanks.

And in light of this crushingly stressful week, I’m playing y’all some Rush. “Working Man” seemed fitting for my mood today. It isn’t my favorite Rush song, but it’s still good stuff.

Happy Hump Day!

Bio: Serena began her writing hobby at an early age, creating stories out of love and a desperation to bring the voices to life. However, when the mountain of post-it noted ideas toppled, she decided to take her passion for writing seriously.

With encouragement from her family, she began writing erotic paranormals to provide an outlet for the characters rambling around in her head—each one edgy, a little dangerous, with a whole lot of sexy.  A hobby turned into career and she’s never looked back.

Serena Shay, erotic romance author, lives in the north with her super supportive hubby, beautiful, Darling Diva, daughter and two crazy, but loveable dachshund pups.

Blurb: Serena Shay returns with Book Two of her intense paranormal romance series Northwood Jags. The Submission takes you on a journey of discovery as three shifters learn to face their fear of the unknown and open their hearts to love.

Serena Shay coverTwo is better than one. Most would agree with that statement, but not full-blooded shifter LeAnn Turone. To accept her need for multiple partners means facing a lifetime in a one-sided triad. She’s better off denying her heritage even if that means walking away from two of the most delectable alpha males she’s ever met.

Rick Taylor and Trent Warren each think they’ve found their mate in LeAnn, but a midnight meeting deep in the woods proves them wrong. Not only do they both long to connect to the sexy, but skittish female, they also find themselves attracted to one another.

Each member of this triad must free themselves from the fear of the future and submit to the greater power of love.

Excerpt:

“A-are you okay?”

So she hadn’t left as he’d thought. Her voice was soft and whispery; different from what he’d expected, yet it still oozed strength and moxie to boot. If not for the flickering stars obscuring his vision, and the inability to stand while keeping his stomach where it belonged, he’d paddle her ass for causing him distress.

“How do you think I am after taking a chair to the back of the head?” he groused from his laid-out position on the floor.

Trent spied her feet moving closer to the front door. He needed to rein in his anger and belligerence if he hoped to keep his newly found mate close. She’d suffered a horrifying attack—growling at her would just send her running, but what had stopped her from laying waste to the idiot attacking her. Her shape-shifter strength far exceeded that of some human male.

“Fine—good-bye.”

“NO, wait…” Trent lifted his head sooner than advisable. Stars throbbed in his vision, and his lunch almost succeeded in its bid for freedom. “Fuck!”

She paled, more than he’d thought possible for someone with such fair skin. Her eyes were wide with fear as tiny cries escaped from closed lips. So lovely and all his, but the knowledge of anyone, including himself, hurting her infuriated him.

“What’s your name, beautiful?” Trent asked when he was finally able to move from his hands and knees to his ass.

She shook her head with the slightest of movements, facing him but keeping her back to the door.

“What shall I call you then … mate?”

“Not that! I have no intention of mating with anyone.”

“Funny how fate and Mother Nature take that choice away from us all…”

“Doesn’t matter…”

“Really?” Trent rubbed his thumb and forefinger around the pressure points between his eyes and above his nose. “Why are you still here, beautiful? Morbid curiosity? Want to see if you were strong enough to kill me?”

Meh is for Monday

I’m sure everyone is having that Meh feeling today. Not just because it’s Monday, but also because it’s the first Monday after the time change. Ugh, time changes. I hates them, precious. Why can’t they just leave well enough alone already? We’re nearing summer which means the days will be longer anyway, but no, they have to go and mess with our clocks too. I do not like leaving my house at dark to drive to work, y’all. Makes me feel like an overachiever.

*sniff*

But since I’m pretty sure everyone and their mother is complaining about the time change, I’ll leave it be.

I know I made a vow somewhere about blogging regularly. I really did mean to. Life just gets in the way and honestly, I don’t think y’all want to hear about my boring life, right? I mean, the most exciting thing to happen to me is my 2-year-old nephew claiming I’m the reason he’s cute. Which is totally true. *snort*

Oh, or how about I’ve been so enamored of my current characters that the minute my head hits the pillow I’m bombarded by scenes I want to write with them? They follow me into sleep and wake up with me, yet when I sit down to write, they won’t talk to me. That isn’t exactly true. I do write because they talk to me but I have to end up removing scenes because I only have 25k words to put their story together. If I went with their pace, we’d be looking at a 100k book. That actually might come later for another book in that series, but for now they need to buckle down, fall in love and get busy. Y’know?

What else? *think* Nothing else really. I’m just struggling to find enough time in the day to handle the evil day job, the writing, family time and sleep. Although that last part isn’t so hard to accomplish. It’s the getting up again in the morning that does it LOL

Anyway, how is everyone else? Ready for Spring to arrive or what?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00058]Blurb: Some bonds run soul deep

Eion Mandrake, wolf shifter and rising alpha, has a secret. The years he spent at school in Little Crow Pass, Wyoming wasn’t just for a typical high school education. He’d been sent to learn all he could about life as a human. What he wasn’t counting on was his best friend’s younger sister, Olivia Wilson. Saving the little daredevil from drowning bonded him to her forever. But pack law dictates no shifter and human are allowed to mate, leaving Eion no choice. He had to leave Little Crow.

Twelve years later, Eion’s returned, and all he wants is to get in and get out of town as quickly as possible. Yet, the moment he runs into Olivia he realizes the flame he’s carried for the human stills burns hot and out of control.

But Olivia is all grown up now and has a new man in her life–one she can count on to stick around. She’s doing her best to move forward and forget her childhood crush. However, Olivia needs Eion’s help. Problem is, lowering the wall around his heart to become Olivia’s hero once more could destroy both their worlds.

Excerpt:

“Come on, Eion,” Olivia called out. “What, are you—chicken?” The few friends who’d joined them at the lake to cool off from the early summer heat laughed.

“Go on,” Kris nudged him in the back. “Do it so she’ll shut up.”

Eion looked over his shoulder at his best friend, then back to Olivia. “I’m not chicken. But that branch is not going to hold if you swing out there.” Eion pointed to the limb she’d picked for the tie-down. “I don’t mind a cannon ball, but I don’t want that thing coming down on my head—or yours.”

“He’s probably right,” Kris said, facing his sister. “Pick another spot for your rope swing, or just give it a rest.”

“God,” Olivia said with a sigh and rolled her eyes. “You guys are so lame.” She whirled around toward the lake, giving them her back. “It’s going to be fine. I crawled out there on it, didn’t I?” Olivia tugged once more on the rope with both hands. “Watch.”

With a mad dash, Olivia streaked toward the grassy edge that would take her out over the near five-foot drop to the water below. With both hands wrapped tight around the twisted rope, she swung out with a squeal of delight and a sickening crack came from the tree.

Shit.

As if someone had flipped a switch, the world around Eion geared down to half speed.

Olivia fell through the air, arms and legs flailing in a strange, slow motion.

The jagged limb followed, tumbling down, down, down, as if seeking revenge on the person who’d dared to test its endurance.

One second his feet were rooted to the ground, and in the next, Eion found himself staring over the edge as Olivia went under, the branch making a loud splash in the same spot. He gasped and the world roared back to full speed.

“Oh, shit!” It was Kris’s voice, but he had no idea when Kris had moved in beside him. In paralyzing silence, they stared at the rippling surface.

Waiting.

Watching.

Come on, Olivia. Show me how damn tough you are.

Writing Hangover

If you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen me mention something about cranking out 12k words this weekend. I haven’t done that in months. Mostly because I’ve been swamped by real life and the evil day job. I’ve been trying to sit down for weeks to pound out Primal Dance, the next book in the Cajun Heat series and last week I had every intention of working on that story.

But on Thursday night as I went to bed, I began to brainstorm a completely different story. A contemporary with not a single paranormal character in sight. Even better, it’s a menage a quatre. I know, are y’all shocked? I’ve written a menage before, but this one is really stepping out of my “comfort zone”. On top of that, each of the male characters are anti-heroes. Each and every single one is a bad boy.

And even better, the whole story is loosely based on a very popular book and musical. I’m not going to say which one it is because I’m still in the “with-this-seekrit-project-I-will-rule-the-world” phase of writing. You know, when you’re positive this story is going to be the one that has people storming the virtual book stores to get a copy of it. Heh. Or should I say Muhuhahahaha!?

Anyway, I’ve been working on this story for…three days? Since Friday at least, but Friday was mostly spent on research. My writing method is that I must have character names down and a title for my stories before I can work on the book. However, all I managed to get were the character names before they demanded I start writing. I still have no title for this story, but I’m actually okay with that. Weird, huh? But it didn’t matter because my muse has finally shown up. Y’all know how she is. She was out partying with hotties and forgot all about me, leaving me to flounder on my own. But she’s back now and she’s putting me through my paces, demanding I write, write, write. The last time this happened, I wrote a 80k story in 25 or 28 days. Something wild like that, edited and revised. Yeah. She really knows how to make me work and I wish she’d stop being such a hooker.

So for now, I’ve had to put Primal Dance on the side to concentrate on this contemporary. I’m sorry for my readers who are waiting on Coltrane and Kanda’s story. It’s coming, just a little later than I’d originally planned. Don’t worry though, it will happen. And if I’m lucky, I’ll have the final book in the series ready shortly after. (But I’m not lucky so…)

Oh and before I forget, today kicks off the start of another blog tour of Touched by Lightning. I’m giving away 2 sets of prizes (Order of Themis travel mugs, swag and gift cards). I have some guest posts and interviews as well as reviews mixed in there so be sure to check it out and enter to win!
