Nate
Being a substitute teacher is good for me.
It’s sensible.
Logical.
Abandoning my plans for a career in the film industry and a life full of fun, albeit slightly reckless, actions was the responsible thing to do.
That’s who I am now.
That’s who I’ve become.
Mr. Boring. Mr. Predictable. Mr. Anal Retentive.
At least that’s what I thought until one irresistible student breathes life back into the version of me I’ve been desperately trying to suffocate.
Being with Ainsley isn’t a want. It’s a need.
And I’m willing do anything to fulfill it.

Ainsley
I’ve spent my entire life ashamed of who I am.
Who my mother is. What she does.
Being forced to attend a private school where people endlessly whisper about it is only bearable because I know exactly what’s in my future.
I know exactly where I’m going.
I know exactly what to do to get there.
Or at least I thought I did.
One class with him and suddenly my entire world was missing one very important piece.
Being with Nate isn’t just about sex.
It’s about loving life in a way I never imagined.
The situation isn’t ideal, but I’ll do whatever it takes to be with him.

#Procrastinating!

Sooo. I’m sitting here wearing my Lularoe leggings, my ‘My Patronus is Tyrannosaurus Rex’ tshirt and wondering why I’m writing my blog instead of diving into one of my books I’m working on. I’m also debating on cutting the lawn!

Real exciting! LOL. It is beautiful out and it is definitley distracting me!

My granddaughter should be being dropped off soon so I hate to get into my book and then not be able to get back to it.

Does that sound like an excuse? Yeah, it does to me too, lol.

Spring fever! I think I have it.

Plus, I hate editing.

I tried to show how many edits I have to go but I can’t seem to copy the page!

So, here’s a short excerpt of A Dragon’s Treasure (mid editing, lol):

Dragons were eyed warily when they finally stepped out of the realms of legend. The last group of shifters to make themselves known to man. Too many shifters had been exterminated when they disclosed their existence. Dragons had lived too long to not be wary of man. Unlike most shifters, rumors of dragons had existed since man began to walk. Little did they realize Dragons walked among them.

Kai’s heart ached. He’d lost his parents more than two centuries past. Superstition and hate were a powerful motive. Bounties on the lives of dragons, sent fool-hardy hunters after them. His mother had been caught unaware, pierced through the heart by a crossbow.

His father had gone berserk. His revenge against the hunters bloody. Kai burrowed deeper into his pile, anger gripping him. His father had been paraded around the village, head hacked from his body and displayed on a pike. He breathed deeply, releasing a stream of steam that rose from between the coins. He ground his teeth, remembering.

He missed them.

Kai and his siblings had eradicated the village. He rumbled, eyes gleaming. The satisfaction of seeing his parent’s murderers plead for mercy was a balm to his soul. The blood had flowed, their bodies torn apart. Kai swallowed, the metallic taste of their blood, one he wouldn’t forget. The repercussions had torn the siblings apart. Forced to flee and separate to save themselves, Kai had rarely seen them since.

That was just a random bit from Chapter One. It gets steamier and not just from Kai!

Coming June 16 in ebook and paperback!

Okay since it is going to be out, and I want it to be good, consider I now #amwriting!

Just a dirty five letter word!

Today I’m at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art

227 State Street, Madison, WI 53703

11am – 400pm

 

 

Feel free to stop by and say hi! This event is free to the public. 35 authors will be there along with live music.

Kick off Madison’s Farmers Market by stopping and shopping with us.

I’ll have signed copies available for sale of Stealing Hope, A Saint’s Salvation, A Sailor’s Delight and Love Me Forever.

A Dragon’s Treasure is at my editor’s (Magic Wand Editing). I’m on the hunt for a cover and still hopelessly lost when it comes to figuring out my blurb for the back cover!

How about this?

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Biding his time, he searches for her finally settling in Wisconsin. Something drew him back every time he left. Giving in to the pull, he stays.

Connie is a college student. She witnessed a murder and is running for her life. She decides to hide with her cousin and is attracted to Kai from the moment she meets him. Until he opens his mouth.

Kai has no problem claiming Connie as his mate. Too bad she doesn’t agree. There’s that whole ick factor going on that she can’t ignore. Kai will do his best to change her mind, one kiss at a time.

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

Eh, it’s just a start! My mind is on getting ready for the signing and blurb is just a dirty five letter word!

A Dragon’s Treasure will be released June 16. I’ll be in MN at a book signing and it will be available there on release day.

 

Coming Soon!

Stealing Hope CoverStealing Hope

I’ll be re-releasing Stealing Hope shortly. I’ve been reediting it prior to releasing it. It will be coming out on Kobo, B&N, ibooks, Amazon, and a couple of other sites. I’ve finished the reediting and it is now ready to go! I have to finish formatting it for release.

I’m also releasing Rise of the Dragons, the prequel to Stealing Hope. If you followed my blog early in 2016, I released it as a serial on here. I’m expanding it and it will only be released as an ebook. It will only be on Amazon and KU for the first three months and then released on the rest of the eRetailers. I’m hunting for a cover for it too.

I’m enjoying bringing Dax and Jasima to life. I hope you will too! It’s not done, but here is a peek! It’s not edited yet, so be gentle!

Rise of the Dragons

Dax felt the change in the world. The rumbles beneath the earth began, slowly. Dax stretched and yawned, nudging his mate Jasima. Attuned to the earth, they woke when the volcanoes began once again to speak to the sky. Each wound of the earth was felt, the pain pouring out in lava and smoke.

“What’s happening?” Jasima yawned, looking over at her mate.

“I don’t know. We need to check it out.” Dax looked toward the tunnel that led to the outside world, pacing in front of it. He worried that more changes would endanger his family. The world had advanced their technology so fast it was no longer safe for them to fly freely. Whatever was happening now couldn’t be good.

The hatchlings stirred; the rumbles of the volcano they nested in making the ground thrum. One hatchling, Ari, stirred, blinking one sleepy eye. The movement of the molten lava through the cave warmed the air. He sniffed the light breeze. The occasional spitting of the lava brought heat, but no harm.

“Shhh, my ciglets, go back to sleep.” Jasima’s soft voice brought a smile to his face. Her humming soothed not only their children, but Dax also. She insisted on calling them her babies when they were all fully grown. But dragons stayed in their family units until they found their mates. To his mate, they would always be her ciglets.

Dax snickered. A term that had their boys scowling when she used it. Despite their groans, Dax refused to chide her about the term. She could call them anything she wanted. Jasima was his world and he could refuse her nothing. They would learn, once they found their own mates.

In the meantime, while you are waiting for these check out my other Dragon shifter story: Dragons’ Mate!

be297-dragons2bmate_finalcover

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

***A standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

Lily LeBlanc isn’t versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she’s definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend’s boyfriend’s best friend? What could possibly go wrong?

NHL player, Randy Ballistic, lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound. Randy’s more than happy to be Lily’s spring board back into the dating scene.

But casual sex is only casual until those pesky things called emotions get involved. Once that happens, someone’s bound to get pucked over.

His to Love: A Fireside Novel

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Loveswept

Synopsis:

In the explosive debut of Stacey Lynn’s irresistible Fireside series, a pair of estranged lovers are reunited by dangerous loyalties—and intoxicating desire.

Tyson Blackwell never saw it coming when his Mafia princess girlfriend dumped him and disappeared at the age of eighteen. He never forgot her, either, even after what happened next: the killing of his father, a Detroit PD officer, at the hands of one of her father’s men. Tyson swore revenge, and now, ten years later, the kid who dreamed of a pro football career is a hard-nosed FBI agent, back in town to take down the Galecki crime family once and for all. But Tyson’s mission gets complicated fast—because going undercover means seducing the only woman he’s ever loved.

Gabriella “Blue” Galecki has been in hiding for a decade. She finally comes home to spend time with her terminally ill mother, only to receive a blast from the past when she runs into Tyson. His brooding eyes and electrifying touch still send chills down her spine. But as heir to the family empire, Blue has been promised to another. Caught in a web of deception, she is tempted to pull the trigger on the boldest risk she’s ever taken: trusting Tyson with her life, her body, and her heart.

Five Scorching Hot Historical Romances. Approx. 2000 pages.

A Measured Risk:
He is her most dangerous temptation. Now he’s demanding her submission. Dare she take the risk?

Emotionally
scarred in the horrific accident that took her husband’s life, Lady
Cranfield is imprisoned by her lingering terror of horses and carriages.
She’s fascinated by the Earl of Ruel. She believes that he can teach
her bravery.

And now she’s willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue-to find out. But what he proposes startles her.

Ruel
instantly senses that shy Lady Cranfield could be the sweetest, most
submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and
complete trust. He offers his help in return for her submission and
obedience.

Neglected as a child by her ducal parents then later
ignored by her handsome, charming husband, Lady Cranfield learnt to
protect her heart at all costs. She trusts no one but herself.

How will the jaded Earl of Ruel break through her self-protective defences and earn her trust and submission?
~~~~

Trust Me:
Anne
and Jon’s love was born in isolation. Necessity thrusts them back into
Society. There are those who will stop at nothing to tear apart the
fragile bond between the newlyweds.

As external foes close ranks,
how will Lady and Lord Ruel learn to overcome their personal demons and
trust each whilst keeping their love, and her sanity, intact?

~~~

Perilous Risk:
Blackmailed
by a vicious, powerful aristocrat, common-born, gentle-natured Rebecca
Howland is in desperate need of help. From the shadows steps forth a man
offering her aid–a man she once rejected. A changed man with a dark,
mysterious past.

Stephen Drake lost Rebecca long ago. Now a spy
for the Crown, with power, funds and a title, he’s been assigned to
follow Rebecca. His old passion for her flares and his darkly erotic
side—one he’s fought to keep hidden for many years–awakens with a
vengeance. This time, he’s determined to possess her forever.

But as danger surrounds them, the two lovers must face secrets that could destroy them and the fragile trust they’ve built.

~~

The Delicate Matter of Lady Blayne:
Driven
to the brink of madness by love for her late husband, a young man too
ill to meet the demands of the marriage bed, Lady Blayne teeters on the
brink of scandal. Now she faces the temptation of a man she once
rejected—husband’s cousin and heir, James, the new Lord Blayne. His
sensual appeal, iron will and stern self-mastery fascinates her. What if
sensual indulgence is the only way out of her darkness? However, those
she loves the most control the young widow through manipulation and
coercion.

Honor bound to protect Lady Blayne, James will not risk
his heart. He must wed a socially appropriate heiress. Scandalously
self-indulgent Lady Blayne won’t do. Yet the pretty girl he once knew
has grown into a beautiful, curvaceous woman—every man’s dream.
Especially his.

~~~

Miranda’s Dilemma:
Poised to become
Mayfair’s most expensive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise
inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her
ducal father and determined to attain everything that life has denied
her, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.
Adrian
Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a
heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience for such
nightbirds. He’s far too busy restoring his family’s wealth and
reputation whilst doing what he can to protect his friends from the
clutches of London’s scheming courtesans.
Then a moment of
compassion turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two
strong-willed, fiercely proud people indulge in a brief affair. Each is
convinced that they can satisfy their craving without emotional risk.

These scorchingly hot historical romances contain darker, angsty themes
and frequent love scenes with frank sexual language, description,
aspects of light BDSM and aspects of abuse in the characters’
backstories.
