Christmas Blog Hop-Giveaway 1

There are 7 days to Christmas!! Can you believe it? I finished shopping and wrapping earlier than I ever have. EVER. LOL. This of course means I’m constantly tempted to keep buying when I walk in a store. Sometimes I win the battle and sometimes…not. So as I’ve done in previous years, I’m celebrating the holiday this week with blog posts and giveaways. Today we’ll launch with something simple and easy. To enter, comment below with your favorite holiday song for the season. I love several and I’m a huge fan of the Grinch cartoon. Recently I downloaded “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” by The Voice contestant Jordan Smith. It such a campy melodic rendition of the song and I sing it at the top of my lungs. LOL. Kids are not impressed 🙂

Today’s prize-audiocodes (3) All of my A World Beyond books are in audio with the exception of Rydak’s Fall. The first 3 Warlords are in audio as well.

**Winners will be selected by random program and notified via comment/email. If winner fails to respond within 5 days of announcement, another will be selected. Announcements will be made 12/29. Be sure to check back to see if you’ve won.

Happy Friday the 13th

It has to be happy because it’s FRIDAY. All Friday’s should be good. LOL. Adding to the reason it’s a good day is the audiobook release of Arak’s Love. Oh, my goodness, I’m excited about having another audiobook out. It’s taken me a while to schedule time to do some of the things I want to meet readers request. So many books, so little time 🙂 I’ve gotten really good at releasing print within the week of ebook and my goal is to get audiobooks to release in that same pattern by 2017. I’ll have to get caught up but slow and steady wins the race.

Now please give Arak a listen and let me know what you think 🙂

AraksLove-audio

Blurb:

Half-Argoran shifter, Arak O’tir knew good people existed. He worked with some of them. But as a deadly Jutak warrior, his work often took him into the less savory elements of society. So much so, he shielded his heart from those he rescued. That was, until one particular mission leaves him longing for a specific female. Someone who made him tremble even if she wasn’t from his world.

Sylvia Forrester never expected her quest for a husband would lead her into danger. Nor could she have ever foreseen that her search would find her captured by aliens and added to a list of potential sex-slaves to be sold for a high profit. While her captors should have broken her, destroying any hope she’d had of a life happily-ever-after, Sylvia’s savior has her wondering if her earlier dreams could still come true.

But Arak and Sylvia soon discover love and passion has its own price.

 


#weriwa Bound by Heat

cf8e7-wewriwa

Welcome back writing warriors and readers. I’m continuing my story about my dragon shifter. If you’ve been hopping along with http://www.wewriwa.com you know that my heroine was asked to fly with my hero. I fast forwarded a bit to right after that magical flight. Enjoy!

She continued to brush her hands over his scales, smoothing her palms down until they rested above his buttocks where the mantle ended.

Pure ecstasy.

She had no idea. A puff of smoke curled from his nose as Ry forced back the fire raging in his belly.

Dara’s eyes widened and her fingers tensed on his skin. Then a beautiful smile spread across her face. “Biting, growling and now smoke. I like a guy who shows I make him hot.”

Sincerity blazed back from her green eyes. In that very moment as unexpected as he found it, Ry fell a little bit in love with Dara Fletcher from Earth.

I want a dragon shifter :/

Bound by Heat will be out 11/24/15 and Rylin’s Fire is one of the three dragon shifter stories.

Blurb:

Rylin thought he’d lost everything when his mate left him to bond with another. Then in a surprising twist of fate he inherited the mantle of leadership. Now Rylin rules the Black Dracol but it’s a lonely life. With hopes of finding another mate, he attends a mating party and finds the fates aren’t done with him yet. An Earth woman captures his heart with one flash of her endearing smile and the open ability to laugh at herself.


Interview and Audiobooks

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Veronica Scott at HEA USA Today. Please stop by and check out our chat. She’s such an awesome writer and I didn’t feel nervous at all after chatting with her before the interview. I’ve included the link below.

Also, I’m looking into doing an audiobooks for my readers who enjoy listening to a good book during the long car ride or commute. Do you have a preference on which book goes to audio first? Let me know in the comments

 


Last Hook of the year

This is the last hook for 2014 but I hope to participate in many more during the new year. Below I’ve included a hook from my novella Mating Urge in the Love Without Boundaries anthology.

It was just Aran and Dar hurrying with her through the streams of people at the space port for one of the larger military training facilities in the alliance. Jax had remained onboard the Zanian IX to complete landing procedures and to issue assignment distribution for the training the crew needed to partake in while here. Dar had received permission to accompany them. The lieutenant sent a smile Ellie’s way to boost her confidence.

It worked until her gaze landed on the six men dressed in all black waiting for them. Black button downed shirts with high collars were tucked into fitted black pants. The laser blasters strapped around their hips and tied to their thighs slowed her steps. Three of them had blond hair brushed back from their foreheads, gazes stern. The other three had dark hair. Wild. Dangerous.

Ellie came to a full stop in the middle of the port. She sensed Aran’s confusion but was unable to move. Those three were the ones to beware. The tallest of the group was also the biggest. He headed in their direction, pinning them with his dark stare. His hair fell about his shoulders daring the slightest breeze to disturb it.

“Ellie?” Aran pressed his hand to her lower back trying to move her forward.

Her feet dug in. She couldn’t. The breath rasped in her chest. Ellie curled her fingers into her palm. The urge to run screamed across her senses.
