From Me to You ~ A Dragon’s Fated Heart series

So, after Rise of the Dragons and after Stealing Hope, the dragon saga continues in Finding Faith.

I’m nearing the end, hoping to have it completed before I go back to work next week. Past a couple of beta readers, then off to an editor.

While it is in front of them, I’ll be searching for a cover. Writing the blurb. You know, the hard part!

Faith has taken a couple of journeys to reach the final product, from being a total brat that I couldn’t stand, lol, to a feisty and no holds barred young lady on a mission. I’ve taken so long to finish it because I’ve written it three times!

Finding Faith, which is totally not a religious book by any means will probably end up in Amazon’s religious section, lol. Two of my other books have landed there. I’m sure it is because of their titles. Sorry Amazon! Not sorry.

Here’s a sneak peak of a bit of the beginning of Finding Faith:

Crag leaned over and snagged a little piece of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he brought it to his nose. The scent assaulted his nostrils. He breathed deep, the spiciness pervading his lungs. It curled inside of him, clenching his gut. He snapped his eyes open. Crag breathed the scent in again, savoring it. His dick twitched. Lowering his hand, he opened it and gazed down at the delicate panties. The scent assured him they belonged to his mate.

He turned at the gasp behind him. Hope, his brother’s mate looked at him in disgust.

“Is that necessary?”

His lips twitched. “Her scent is strongest in what she wore closest to her body.” He raised his brow, daring her to argue with him.

“Hmpf.” Hope shook her head and gestured for him to leave the room. “Just find my sister.”

Crag shoved the lacy panties in his pocket. He didn’t need them, but he wanted them. Pleased with having something of his mate’s, he quirked a grin at Hope. Patting Hope on the head he turned and left. The growl from her was just a bit of icing on the cake. Crag shook his head as he passed Hope’s grandmother. The twitch of his lips the only sign of his amusement.

Hope you enjoyed!

From Me to You!

I’m getting ready to go out the door for a Brat Fry. It’s a fundraiser for my AMVETS today. Only 3 this summer! I’ll be working until noon and then heading into work to work on my rural adjustments. Ah, the life of a Postmaster, lol!

Well, I did NOT make my goal of 5000 words last weekend with the girls gone. I *hanging head* started watching The 100 and got addicted! Nothing like a post apocalyptic show to hook me, lol. l haven’t even been reading much.

Which is not all my fault! If you follow me on Facebook, you know my paperwhite is dying. The battery is not holding a charge. So please, I need a new one so buy my books! LOL. Everything seems to go back to Amazon!

My two newest books:

Willow’s Cry

When you’ve pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen…

 

Blurb:

Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.

Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.

Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

And

 

A Dragon’s Treasure

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

 

Blurb:

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.

Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.

Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.

I’m obsessing again! From Me to You

Many of you know, I obsess over dragons. I’m working on Finding Faith right now. My daughter and granddaughter are on vacation in California, so I have the house to myself. And my husband, lol. But, he works graveyard and goes in early a lot. A LOT.

So, with Dragon Naturally I get a heck of a lot more done than I do typing. So, my goal is to get at least 5000 or more words done by the time they get back. We’ll see how that goes! The girls left Thursday, God awful early. So Thursday I did a bike ride and relaxed after work. Okay, I’m not going to lie… I thought the bike ride was going to kill me. I decided to add some hills to our normal ride. NOT a good idea. But I made it, home and in one piece.

It was bad enough I had to battle a huge spider just to get out of the house, then I found one trying to go for a ride with me. Where ever he landed, it wasn’t on me!

(If there are any spider shifter books out there, I don’t want to know. That man would have been dead in minutes at my house, lol. No one would ever know he existed!)

My writing today will be a little delayed. I’m handing out White Clovers for AMVETS today from 10-noon. Then I’m heading to Deforest for a DRAGON FESTIVAL. Awesome! I might find more dragons for my collection and maybe some inspiration! Possibly I’ll find some dragon essentials to hoard for a giveaway when Finding Faith comes out later this year.

So, while I’m writing the second in the series, catch the prequel:

Rise of the Dragons

The apocalypse has come. 

Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.
Dax and Jasima explore and try to save what they can of mankind.

Their children’s future depends on it.

This is the prequel for a Dragon’s Fated Heart series.

and then Book one of A Dragon’s Fated Mate series:

Stealing Hope

The apocalypse has come and gone. 
Those who survived learned to adapt. 
Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies. 

Upon eruption of a volcano, Ari awakens to a changed world, and a knowing that his dragon’s mate is near. He saves her twice—once as a dragon, and again as a man—and wins her confidence.

Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?”

Hope is restless and unfulfilled until she meets Ari, the man of her fantasies. The sensual tension between them heightens with every touch. When their passion explodes, Hope gets pulled into the dragon’s mating ritual…and into a world of erotic sensation she never dreamed existed but now cannot live without. The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.

From Me to You ~ What do you do in a reading slump?

OMG, do you ever get sick of everything you have on your kindle? That happened to me this week! I love to read. Even more than I love to write. I have done some of that this week but I NEED to read. But nothing appealed to me. I flipped through my whole TBR pile and nothing caught my eye. I even started reading three or four different books but put them aside. Not that I normally wouldn’t read them, but ugh!

So I thought about what I felt like reading.

Nope, no dragons (gasp!) No lions, no tigers, no bears. No sweet, no BDSM. No sci fi – romance or otherwise. No historical. Ugh. Then, I thought, oh! Mountain Man! So I downloaded a couple of Frankie Love books. Oh man, I love me some Mountain Man’s Babies books.

Slump is gone! But since I’ve read all of Frankie Love’s Mountain Man’s Babies books, I need to find some more. I’ll have to see what else she has written, but I sure can’t wait for the next in the series. Poor Jonah is the single man out on the mountain. He has to eventually find his happily ever after.

I’ll keep reading the series until Frankie is tired of writing them!

In other news, I’m adding to Finding Faith. I have a deadline in my head, but I’m not saying! If I do and I miss the deadline I set then everyone will know I missed it. This way the only one I disappoint is myself! It will be out this year. That I guarantee.

The flow is going well when I have a chance to write. I’ve taken over babysitting so my daughter can study. She has to pass her next two tests to stay in the nursing program. That trumps me writing! I want her to get her nursing degree. Once she graduates and has a good job, I’ll be able to relax and get back to finishing more books.

So I’ll do what I can, to keep writing and keep my family moving forward!

Have a good weekend, I’ll be behind my computer, putting more words down.

 

 

From me to you ~ Saturday in Madison WI ~ Madtown Author Daze!

Short and sweet!

I’m still working on Finding Faith. She is about to have a rude awakening. She’s seen a dragon but she never imagined they were also men! But, I’m taking a break today to be at a book signing.

So, if you’re near Madison WI come on over and say hi!

No automatic alt text available.

Lots to do in the area besides meeting some awesome authors! All genres of books will be there.

We’ll be in the lobby of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. The Farmer’s Market is just down the street and State Street offers up a mix of funky shopping and a whole range of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

Head on over and make a day of it! Don’t forget to stop and say hi! You’re more than welcome to stop and purchase books, too, lol.

I’ll have my newest release along! Willow’s Cry on sale in paperback for $5.00 for an autographed copy!

Can’t make it today? I’ll be in Minnesota next month! Illinois in July. August in Iowa and back in Wisconsin for September and November!

 

From Me to You ~ To write or to READ?

Okay, I woke up at 400 am, read a bit and then started laundry. By 600 am, I was on my second load of laundry, showered, dressed, ate and sat down to write.

So, one paragraph later I keep thinking about the book I had finished. There were at least two more in the series that I needed to get. THEN when stalking the author’s facebook page, I found out one of my favorite characters in the book had a story. Not just one but three!

These really are NOT standalones. You have to read one and then the other. So I have two more to get through to read the three, lol. So five books. I could do it, I have no plans this weekend. Other than writing my OWN book!

If you are wondering about the addicting series, it is the King series by TM Frazier. Dark romance, which is a bit of an addiction for me! I couldn’t help but read it.

So, read or write, read or write?

THAT’S my dilemma.

I want to do both. I think, I can read and when I’m done I’ll write. Sounds good, right? But what if I’m in a book coma? C’mon, you know what I mean! I’m so deep in that book world I don’t want to come out. It happens. That shit is real!

I could write, set a goal, but I keep wanting to crack open Lawless and read Bear’s story. Gah!

I think I’ll head out of the house (because Paw Patrol is blaring!) Go to the coffee shop and write. Meet a goal, any goal! Have a nice tasty cup of Enchantment (latte with white chocolate and creme de menthe) and write. Leave my kindle at home, lol.

This could work-if there is nothing going on. No vendor sales, no farmer’s market, no meetings or singers. That is usually just Saturday mornings! This is a very busy coffee shop! If it is too busy, I could try the new shop in town. But it doesn’t look as comfortable. I suppose I won’t know unless I try.

And really, I left poor Crag hungry and chasing after his mate once again.

His stomach growled. Pretty soon he was going to have to find something to eat. Checking to make sure he still followed Faith’s enticing aroma, Crag decided that food was in order. She’d have to stop for the night. Once he’d eaten, he would just keep going until he found her.

Backtracking, Crag found a spot where he could shift and fly out. Branches dragged at his wings, catching at his legs as he burst from the sky. Glancing down, he looked, trying to see Faith. Shaking his head he flew away. He didn’t want her to see him, to be afraid of him.

Logically he knew that he would eventually have to tell her. But Faith seemed a little more intense than her sister. Somehow, Crag was pretty sure that if he changed Faith without telling her, he would regret it the rest of his life.

Decisions, decisions. I want coffee, so I guess I’ll go write for a bit!

From Me to You! Exclusive excerpts

Willow’s Cry is live!

When you’ve pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen…

Blurb:

Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect.

Excerpt:

The liquid heat rolled down his body. Rolling his neck, he let it do its work, his muscles relaxing one by one. Head against the tiled wall, he watched the dirty water swirl in the bottom, exiting down the drain. He’d soap up. In a minute. The sound of the water tinkling down soothed him. Closing his eyes, muscles relaxing, each bead took away a bit of his stress, the images of the past couple of days flashing in front of his eyes.

The trek to get down to the hikers fell to him. First on the scene, Alex evaluated the situation. He quickly set up his equipment. Listening to the wind, an urgency had him securing ropes to the large rocks jutting up through the grass. Pitons weren’t his first choice but he needed to hurry. Ensuring each rope had its own ascender to help the hikers climb to safely. Not to mention if either were injured he could move them up on his own.

Alex glanced at the area, the mountain a guaranteed mudslide waiting to happen. With the imminent threat, speed became absolutely necessary. Sending his coordinates over the two way radio strapped to him, Alex stepped off the cliff, quickly rappelling down.

One of the hikers, unhurt other than assorted bruises, did his best to help Alex secure the injured hiker for transport. With a search team yet to reach them, Alex needed his muscle to help pull up the unconscious woman. Her leg was broken, and even with a makeshift splint it would be a hard journey up. The splint her partner applied good enough to get her up. Alex stabilized her for the trip to the top. Looking at the path, hearing the urgent whispers in the wind, Alex realized he needed to act now.

Exhaling, he squared his shoulders.

 

So, now that Willow’s Cry is done, I’m working on Finding Faith. The 2nd book in the Dragon’s Fated Heart Series. 

This is Crag’s story…

Faith checked her compass. She needed to ensure she was heading in the correct direction. Her body tingled pleasantly, achy in bits, but satiation made her movements languid. She’d never dreamed a man could make her feel like that. She’d been wild and out of control. He made her forget herself.

She couldn’t do that. She couldn’t abandon Hope. Forgetting herself would make her lose time. She wasn’t too upset about yesterday. Her lips quirked. Well, she wasn’t at all upset about yesterday. Everything about the man she’d met sent her body out of control. Whirling into dizzying heights of pleasure she’d never imagined existed.

She hadn’t planned on spending the night learning about passion. Once the man was asleep and snoring away, it was easy enough to slide from his arms. Kneeling, she couldn’t help but stare for a bit.

Heavily muscular, he was mouthwateringly fit.  His six pack led down and his bulk showed he liked his food. His abdomen, obviously tight and in shape, but his waist carried just a bit of a love handle, proving he loved his food. Smothering a smile, Faith had wanted to wake him and tease him, just a bit.

Knowing the foolishness of that desire, she stifled her laughter, following his glory trail south. The sight of his large, thick, flaccid penis dried her mouth. Moisture settling south, drenching her pussy. The ache in her abdomen, the racing of her heart, assured her that settling down and straddling him was an awesome idea. Just imagining him sliding into her shortened her breath.

Leaning forward, knowing it was pure foolishness, Faith licked him from his root to his tip. Pulling back, his cock rose following her mouth. Licking her lips, she suckled the tip. Her hips tilted, wanting to feel him inside. He tasted so good. Salty and manly.

Faith giggled. He moaned. She stilled. Flicking out her tongue, she licked him, sucking lightly. He grew, filling her mouth. Unable to resist, Faith bobbed down, taking as much of him as she could. Her fingers slid into action, one hand caressing his large sac and the other grasping him at the root, holding him up for her pleasure.
