The Witchlings: new covers for five year anniversary!

In honor of the five year anniversary of the launch of the Witchling Series, I had the covers redesigned and will be releasing hardcover versions (and new paperbacks) in early Feb!

“Dark Summer” was originally released in summer 2012 and “Autumn Storm” in fall 2012. Both were picked up by a small press and re-released in spring 2013! In Feb, thanks to my gracious publisher, I’ll have the rights back to this series, to the Incubatti series and to the Broken Beauty series (updates on this series later!) (Note: autographed versions will be available in October as part of the annual paperback/hardcover sale!)

Can you believe the Witchlings are almost five years old?! I can’t!

Cover reveal: “A World Apart” by Camelia Skiba!

As promised since beginning of this month I have a $ 25.00 giveaway going on for anyone stopping by to see the new cover. All you have to do is leave a comment here with what retailer you’d prefer the gift card from.

For a limited time A WORLD APART is up for grabs for only .99cents. Hurry up before the sales ends!

And now . . . drumroll please!

Then . . . Now!

Trauma surgeon Lieutenant Cassandra Toma begins her deployment at the Joint-Unit Air Base on the wrong foot. On her first day, she clashes with her new commander. Her rebellious nature and sassiness rival her excellent performance in the operating room. It might be the only reason she’s not reprimanded … or is it?

Major David Hunt is unsure how to handle the brilliant and beautiful Cassandra. As her commander, he can’t consider a relationship. A forbidden passion consumes them with the intensity of an erupting volcano, leaving her heartbroken and him with tarnished honor and pride as an officer. The only way out for David is disappearing into the dangerous warzone in Iraq.

When their paths cross again, Cassandra and David find they have a common goal—to find Cassandra’s brother, Maj. Robert Toma, kidnapped by insurgents while on patrol. To rescue him, they must put aside their resentments and fight their common enemy. And the fire between them is back.

Cassandra wants to give David—and their love—another chance. But she doesn’t know that his mistake, his secret, could cost them both the love they’ve finally found.

Ready for the next installment of sexy, sweet Luc?! Wait no longer!

Grab episode three today from Amazon, Amazon UK, BN, iBooks, and Kobo!

3Luc Du’Mont’s exploits as French Kiss for Hire continue as his visa’s expiration looms and Serena remains out of reach…

Sensitive and sexy Frenchman, Luc Du’mont, is living the American dream. He’s spent the last four years at university on an acting scholarship. Now, with graduation behind him he’s ready to make his big Hollywood splash.

A debut that has to happen before his student visa expires in two months. Otherwise, he’ll be shipped home to France and all of his acting opportunities will sail with him.
But most importantly, he’ll lose any chance at winning blond-bombshell Serena Dawson’s heart. As the sister of his roommate she is strictly off limits. But when Serena approaches Luc for kissing advice, what can Luc say other than pucker up?

The kiss leads to much more than Luc ever imagined. When word gets out about Luc’s lip-locking skills and his unemployment leaves him desperate, Luc finds himself with a new career path: French Kiss for Hire.

Except the only client he wants is the one girl he can’t have.

New release: “The Door (Part Two)”

Her heart or her world? The second (and final) installment was released Fridaynight! See how Gianna copes with the consequences of disobeying the Caretaker’s directive and locking the door!

Available from:

New to the world of “The Door?” Grab Part One from:

Summary: There’s only one rule: Never lock the door

Gianna believes manual labor to be penance for the mistake that changed her life. Nothing can be worse than serving probation under the supervision of a bitter, elderly woman, known as the Caretaker, running a bed and breakfast in the middle of the Arizona desert.

Then the strangers begin arriving. They appear every night at sundown at the end of the driveway and vanish early in the morning, armed men and women who don’t quite look or act normal and never travel in vehicles, despite the property being twenty miles from town. Where they come from baffles Gianna, as does the single rule the Caretaker gives her. The front door must remain unlocked and the house accessible to the dangerous visitors no matter how unusual or frightening they are.

When one of them arrives wounded, Gianna helps save him and unknowingly makes a powerful friend, one from a very faraway place. In fact, from another world entirely, the world that starts at the end of the driveway. Before she can learn more, Gianna is left alone with the strangers and must choose whether she’ll take over the Caretaker’s role as hostess or return to New York and risk jail time for violating her probation.

Frustrated with her life, Gianna defies the Caretaker and locks the front door instead.

Her world will never be the same.

2016 tentative release schedule

Tentative January and February releases!

These are tentative. I have one major Life Thing coming up that might cause me to push releases back a couple of weeks, so we’ll have to see how it goes! But for now, this is what I’m planning for the first two months of 2016!

Quick reminder: I’ll be online ONE DAY A MONTH ONLY in order to spend more time writing this year than I did in 2015. My admins will be managing a few of my social media accounts, while a few others will likely be inactive.

I failed to finish several books in 2015 on my schedule, so I’m adjusting how I do things for 2016 so I can write more books for you!!!

Series summary

The Kingmaker code: Choose wisely – or else.

One to love, one to lead, one to fear.

To understand them, she must become one of them.

Wolf – Fae – Vampire

Three weeks, three transformations.

One ultimate decision.

Trial by Moon (#1)

trialbymoon2rgbIt turns out, werewolves are aroused by everything – and allergic to polyester. Hives are the least of Leslie Kingmaker’s concerns when she enters her first trial and is transformed overnight into a wolf and the mate of pack leader Ben. Successful, brawny, overbearing and sexy, he’s as intense as he is moody and has never heard of personal space. Complete submission isn’t a sex game to him; it’s a requirement to be by his side. Heart, body, mind. They’re all his – no matter where that leaves Leslie at the end of the week.

But something about the muscular alpha with a dark streak keeps her coming back, and it’s not just her duty as a Kingmaker charged with choosing the next leader of the supernatural community. Ben is dangerous and smart, a predator in every sense with the capacity for both mercy and violence – and an absolute animal in bed. Is he leadership material? Husband material? The danger her father’s final letter warns her about?

The deeper Leslie dives into his life, the more complicated the alpha becomes, and the harder it is for her to remember she’s only a werewolf for a week.

The first one, “Trial by Moon,” is available from SmashwordsAmazonAmazon UK and will be available from BN, iBooks and Kobo soon!

Highlander Enchanted is almost here!

“Highlander Enchanted” will be out over this upcoming weekend, I believe, or the Monday following the weekend! I’m excited about this one. It’s different than what I usually write. Think Highlander historical romance with a splash of magic … 🙂

cropped-Highlander-Enchanted_fb.jpg

Lady Isabel de Clare is on the run – and out for revenge against the man she blames for her brother’s death in the Crusades and her father’s descent into madness. When she finds Black Cade, she isn’t expecting him to protect her from the English fiancé she’s fleeing. She also doesn’t believe the tales of fae and magic, until she uncovers a secret one night while under Black Cade’s protection.

At first intrigued by the soft-spoken yet strong Isabel, Black Cade is soon faced with a difficult decision: protect her against her enemies despite knowing she’s there to kill him or leave her to deal with an abusive man out to steal her title and gold. When his secret is revealed, he decides to trap the beautiful Englishwoman in a loveless marriage to guarantee her silence and his life.

Neither expects their hearts – or lives – to be threatened by the union, until danger breaks out in the Highlands, pitting fae against human, English against Scottish, husband against wife.

Will the love of Isabel and Cade be enough to bring peace the Highlands?
