Meet Regret Hollow's Newest Bad Boy! #badboyromance #smalltownromance #newrelease

He’s supposed to be the town hero. He’s not!

Haunted by comrades he was unable to save, Drake Miller walks away from his military career for the relaxed, quiet life of running his father’s bar in Regret Hollow. Too bad no one tipped him off that his father sold the bar.

While the townspeople treat him to a hero’s welcome that he doesn’t want and doesn’t deserve, he finds one person who doesn’t fall at his feet, calls him out for bad behavior, and kisses like a fantasy. Unfortunately, she also owns the bar that was supposed to be his.

As a single mom and small business owner, Mallory Marquette takes her commitments and responsibilities seriously. She can’t give away her livelihood just because Drake thinks he’s entitled to it—even if he is the town hero and the first man in a decade who gets her blood flowing. Besides, she needs a reliable bartender much more than she needs a lover.

Can this hero turned bad boy step up to a lifetime commitment, or will the freedom he sacrificed so much for cost him everything?

“Wait a second.” He held up a hand. “I know you. You’re the stuck-up high school princess who was too good to give me the time of day. Mallory Yates.” His lips curled into a sneer.

In what universe did a pizzeria waitress have anything in common with a princess? Whatever. She couldn’t reason with guys like him. She didn’t bother to correct him on her name, either. If not for Ryan, she’d have returned to the Yates surname after her divorce. “I don’t know what you’re talking about and neither do you, but thanks for showing me you’re still the same insensitive jerk you’ve always been.”

He laughed. “You’re ever so welcome, princess. Now are you going to spray me with that pepper spray or just intimidate me by waving it around?”

She glanced down at the tiny bottle in her fist. If the rumors about his capabilities were true, he could disarm her in the blink of an eye. Regardless, he sure wasn’t the least bit intimidated.

“Neither.” She shoved the canister in her back pocket and advanced on him. “I want you to think next time before you do something stupid.” She shoved his chest, which proved as solid and unmoving as a brick wall.

He grasped her hands before she could withdraw them, trapping them against his heat. His eyes glittered in the growing darkness. 

“Sometimes thinking is overrated. I like to do and deal with the consequences later.” He lowered his head toward her.

No way. He wouldn’t. He had as much disdain for her as she had for him. She glared at him, refusing to call his bluff and pull away.

His lips pressed against hers, hard and demanding. He plunged his tongue into her mouth. She gasped as fire raced through her veins. Clenching her fingers around the fabric of his T-shirt, she met the demands of his mouth.

She refused to be intimidated just because he was sexier than sin and could kiss a hell of a lot better than anyone in recent memory or, um, in ever. Oh God, she couldn’t remember anyone else. She couldn’t even remember her own name.

A moan tore from her throat. She bit down on his lip then thrust her tongue, tangling it with his.

He bracketed her ribs, sliding beneath her jacket and the hem of her shirt then over her waist and up, cupping her breast.

Holy hell. Who knew being groped could feel so good? With one touch, she nearly believed she could leave behind stress and responsibility and reclaim her femininity. “Fondle me, you bastard, and make it good.”

Coming soon ~ Oracle's Vision

Good morning everyone! I am so happy to share with you Oracle's Vision! It's fall, the season of watching the colors change. Cool crisp mornings. Everything pumpkin spice. lol Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year because it ushers in the holiday season. It's also when you can kick back by a fire, and just read. What's your favorite thing about fall? Leave me a comment, and let me know.

But, before that, here is a sneak peek at Oracle's Vision:
Amanda Culter needs a time out. After spending much of her life on the run with no one believing her, she's committed the ultimate fuck up. She allowed her friends and unit to walk into a trap, killing three and hurting her best friend, Ben Kogan. With the orders to recharge and gain the ability to trust those around her, she heads to Wiccan Haus, hoping they can figure out what happens next. What she didn't expect is meeting a polar bear with a surly disposition, and an Oracle. Nor was she expecting either of them to be her mates. 

A change is coming. 

Niamh Laleh, Oracle and green witch, is happily mated to the man who stole her heart over seventy years ago. But when a vision of a sad, distraught Auburn haired woman fills her dreams night after night, she knows what she has to do.  

Arcades Bennett knows not to question his mate's visions and when she says she must go to a place called Wiccan Haus and seek out the woman in her dreams, he agrees. What he isn't prepared for is finding a second mate.  

Resisting the pull grows impossible as their friendship blossoms, but when push comes to shove, can he seal all three of them or will Amanda slip right through their fingers?

“Anything more on the auburn-headed woman?” Cade asked, as the air around her shifted when he stepped out onto the balcony before taking her into his arms.
“No.” Frustration laced through her tone as she allowed her body to relax against him. Cade towered over her tiny five-foot-five frame by more than a foot. Massive in human form, he became even bigger when he shifted to his polar bear. His imposing figure never scared her, quite the opposite in fact. He always made her feel extremely safe and protected. For a woman with her past, the safety and security he provided made her love him even more.
“Your visions are never wrong.”
He couldn’t be more correct, but because her visions foretold a change in their future it had been blurry, at least the parts having something to do with her. Cade and the auburn-haired woman, well, she had seen those in vivid detail. It was those visions that brought them here to Wiccan Haus for the week.
“No, they are not, but sometimes they also don’t give the full picture. Sometimes they require me to decipher them. I do not wish to decipher them wrong,” Nai answered. In the distance a seagull took flight. The edge of its wings skimmed across the water.
“Well, if it means anything, I trust you and I’ll always trust your visions.” Nai felt the deep growl in his chest as he tightened his arms around her.
“Yet you have questions.” She turned her head to gaze up at her mate. Glacier blue eyes meet her head on, never wavering.
“Of course I have questions, hjarta. You come to me and inform me you have a vision that will impact our life, and how we must come here.”
A wave of guilt rolled through her. When retelling Cade her visions, she’d deliberately left out certain things. He thought they were simply here to help this auburn-haired woman, and in a way, they would. Yet, she hadn’t told him she had seen him and the woman having sex. Nai knew this was impossible, unless the auburn-haired woman had been a potential second mate.
“It seems to me a piece of the puzzle is missing,” he stated. “Is she perhaps a polar bear?”
“No. She is not a shifter. She hides.”
“Do you think it’s our job to bring her out into the light?” he asked.
“No, she must want to do that on her own, although I believe we will guide her.”
“Maybe this isn’t the correct time place and time to find her, hjarta.”
Schooling her features so they remained blank, she neither agreed nor disagreed with him. The piece missing would be the auburn-haired woman. “I have the correct time and place.” Her body stiffened as he questioned her vision. No one had ever questioned them. Rulers had decimated countries, killing thousands of men, women, and children to possess her and her visions.
“Of course, my queen,” he murmured, nuzzling her neck.

New Multi-author series~ Order of the Black Knights

The first two books in the new multi-author series are out. Check out each knights as he discovers hatred and greed are never an needs to justify the means. And along the way he may find his one.
Order of the Black Knights
Every century has seen its knights, but they are not always seen. Some of them do what must be done—getting their hands dirty when no one else is willing. Assassins and antiheroes who work from the shadows, they are called the Black Knights. From the time of the society’s creation in the 1100s, these men are cursed to repeat their lives of bloodshed. But for each knight, there is one who can bring out the man that waits inside and break the cycle. The question is whether or not the knight will kill his true love before he figures it out.

Gideon Maybury enjoys a life of wealth and privilege, not to mention the advantages his position offers him in his career as a merchant banker and his less public life as a high-class, skilled, and very well-paid assassin for Her Majesty’s government. When his brother dies unexpectedly, he becomes the Duke of Westmoreland.
Michael Mathison has hated Gideon since they were at university together. He’s convinced Gideon had a hand in the death of Michael’s college lover, Christopher, and that he had something to do with the death of his own brother. So he gets a job as Gideon’s driver, enabling him to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of the elder Maybury sibling. At first his suspicions seem to be confirmed, but clues emerge that suggest all is not as it appears at Maybury Hall.
As the mystery deepens, so does the attraction between the two implacable enemies, as does the feeling that they have met before—under dark and terrible circumstances. Each has reasons not to trust the other, but neither is averse to a bit of kinky play. Gideon and Michael end up owing each other their lives, and it results in consequences neither could have imagined.
From Louisiana swamp rat to revivalist huckster to skilled con artist, Matthias Krall clawed his way out of poverty using his natural gifts of grift and manipulation to become the leader of an exclusive retreat center. Exploiting the guise of spiritual guru, Matthias seduces the rich and powerful into turning over their lives and fortunes to his control. But wealth and a small cadre of loyal followers can’t protect Matthias from the betrayal he knows is imminent. Everyone wants what Matthias has, except for one man who wants to destroy it. Dylan Connelly is a reporter who’s determined to prove the charismatic recluse is not only a fraud but a murderer.
Irresistibly drawn to Dylan despite the warnings in his gut, Matthias lures Dylan to his island retreat, determined to destroy his enemy once and for all.

How would you like a sneak peek of Mr Monday? Here's a mini excerpt to tempt you.
Mr Monday - Working Girl 

I watched the man approach. He seemed about to explode out of his well-tailored suit. I noticed everything about him, imprinting him into my brain.

He. Was. Gorgeous.

And big.

Good Lord, he seemed to fill the hall with his presence. The intensity on his face as he concentrated while talking on his cell phone had me holding my breath. His brows, heavy and dark, just like his closely cropped hair, were drawn together. He was focused and walked with confidence. A fierce scar ran over his cheek, just under his right eye. I had the urge to trace my finger along the angry welt across his cheekbone. All sorts of stories about how he had achieved such a scar raced through my overactive brain. None of them was very comforting.

Poor Tess. What a dilemma she has. All these gorgeous and sexy men monopolizing her for seven days. I hope you stick with me and find out how her interviews go. Does she get the job? Does she get her man? Is her revenge sweet? Oh, what a conundrum!

A sexy seven-day job interview. Seven irresistible interviewers. Who will she choose at the end of the week?

Tess has been determined to get revenge for her father, ever since he was falsely accused of misusing company funds and unceremoniously let go from Diamond Enterprises. Applying to be Executive Assistant to the elusive, elderly head of the company, Mr King, seems the ideal way to get inside the firm and clear his name.
But the job interview is not what she expects. Arriving at the company HQ, she is escorted to a helicopter, blindfolded and flown to a secret location. She meets a man whose voice is disguised, but introduces himself as Mr King and says the job advertisement was a ruse to find the new CEO of Diamond Enterprises. The catch, the interviewer says, is that the job will only be hers if she passes a seven-day interview.
Tess will have seven mysterious men who will assist her - one for each task each day. She will have to use all of her skills if she's to succeed and to resist the powerful magnetism of the irresistible men sent to help - or distract - her. Or will Tess find herself losing her heart when she meets her man of the week?
Mr Monday, Mr Tuesday, Mr Wednesday, Mr Thursday, Mr Friday, Mr Saturday, Mr Sunday. Meet all seven in Working Girl - who will be your man of the week?

Hot Cover for My New Release - Tempted by the Gargoyle is Out Today!

I am so excited to share the cover of my new release, Tempted by the Gargoyle. I love this cover. The wings are so detailed and the color of the moon is perfect., and the city below.  With Roman looking over the city of Boston, protecting it--yes, we have a winner!

Meet your perfect match this Saturday night—or your perfect match for the night.

The eclipse of the red Supermoon sends crowds into Boston for an evening hyped up for a night of passion, one not to be missed. Boston police officer Larissa Riley wants nothing to do with the media-driven event, but her friend convinces her they need a night out after all they've gone through. They visit a new gothic-themed club where Larissa is disturbed by the attractive stranger eying her.

Roman, a gargoyle shifter and commander of the Stone Sentries, patrols from the rooftop of a club on the night of the eclipse. The Supermoon bodes danger and he puts all his sentries on watch. When a blast of dark magic soars past him, he searches for its origin and fixes on a brunette. Something about her is different, demanding all senses be on high alert. Is she dangerous? Or is she in danger?

Deciding a night with a hot stranger would be good for her, Larissa invites Roman back to her hotel, unaware he is surveilling her. The night takes a dark turn as secrets are uncovered and danger moves in. Her beloved city is under attack. Larissa must decide who to trust before all is lost, including the fate of her closest friend.
