Haven’t had much time to update over here, but I thought I’d pop in to show off some upcoming books. I get all my fantabulous blog-posting ideas when I have no time to write them. In the meantime, if anyone wants to drop off a question or suggest a topic you’d like to see covered, please feel free. Honestly, the past few weeks have been so topsy-turvey. I’m evening out now, but after an exhaustive month, which included a day-job change and a new pair of prescription glasses (something I’ve never needed before), I’m just trying to catch my breath.
I do want to take a moment to brag over my authors, past and pending releases. A complete list (and all will be featured here as release dates approach) can be found here. All books listed below have excerpts available on the Samhain site. Just click on the cover for your preview.
Co-Edited with Amy Sherwood
How far will a strong woman bend? Maybe past the point of rescue.
The Elect, Book 3
Years ago, former Special Ops officer Carter Owens made the biggest mistake of his life. He met the woman of his dreams—and didn’t fight to keep her. Now that he’s learned Jamie Wade is still alive, and that she bore him a son, Carter plans to protect his family at all costs. Right after he’s rescued them along with several other Elect members being held prisoner in a private hospital.
He isn’t prepared to find her battered, drugged-up, and half-starved. Whatever her captor wanted, the madman hadn’t gone after it humanely.
When Jamie awakens, she’s stunned to find herself free of the abuser who tried and failed to make her admit she’s a telepath. As a police detective, she is driven to join the investigation into the organization that held her and her son captive. But she’ll have to do it in secret, away from Carter’s too-watchful, overprotective eye.
Which isn’t going to happen anytime soon, because first she has to recover—and convince him that their out-of-control sexual chemistry isn’t a good enough reason to stay.
And coming up on March 26, we have Frank Tuttle and Rinda Elliott, both with highly anticipated releases.
When the banshee howls, start looking for the lifeboats.
The Markhat Files, Book 7
Take a simple, three-day cruise on a lavish steamboat casino, they said. Just keep an eye out for trouble while the Regent rolls the dice, they said.
Markhat should have known the maiden voyage of Avalante’s vampire-crewed Brown River Queen would be anything but a finder’s dream job. Especially when he charges a ridiculous fee—and gets it without a peep of protest.
Then a pair of identical murderous maidens attack him and his lady love, and it doesn’t take a banshee’s howl to confirm his sinking suspicion he’s about to earn his fee the hard way.
As the heavily guarded steamboat casts off, Markhat is forced to navigate shoals of old enemies, treacherous political undercurrents, and rogue waves of assassins. All to keep the walking dead from turning the Brown River Queen’s decks red with blood.
Beri O’Dell is investigating paranormal creatures because she wants to know what she is. Taller and stronger than most men, she astral projects and can peel through dimensional layers to see the creatures and spirits beyond.
She once helped her foster sister, Detective Elsa Remington, track down killers in Jacksonville, Florida, but stopped when a nasty fire elemental turned her strength against her. Now, she finds herself pulled back when something steals Elsa’s soul and puts her into a coma.
With little time to spare, Beri searches for the reason behind her sister’s coma. She has help in her spirit guides Fred and Phro, but others come along for the ride, including a pyro-nervous witch, and an androgynous necromancer.
The last thing Beri needs is to fall in love with a mysterious stranger. But the handsome Minoan warrior Nikolos knows what creature she’s after because he’s battled it before.
Really, really bad.
He calls it the Dweller on the Threshold.
