Sci-fi on the rock baby!!

If you read my posts, you have to know I love Newfoundland and this weekend is providing yet another reason why!

St. John’s is celebrating its 11th sci-fi convention and I’m here as a vendor with The Guardians trilogy!

I have never been to a con before so this was my maiden voyage (get it!?), but it’s been awesome! I’ve sold a bunch of books, met a bunch of amazing people, and I’ve been able to geek out! Here’s my display… I love my new banner so much!

It’s release day!!! Epic Love is live!

We’re having a party! 

I love hosting Facebook parties for releases because it gives me a chance to interact with my readers one-on-one, which is beyond cool! Plus, it gives me the chance to bring together my Evernight books with my indie-published books, Blood of Eden, My Brother’s Keeper, and soon to be released, Sins of the Father!!

The rules are simple. If you purchase a copy of Finding the right words for .99¢ and post the receipt under this picture at tonight’s party, you’ll be entered to win THE GUARDIANS entire series!

Epic Love is ready for release!!! Yayyyy! It’s sooner than I thought, I was preparing for April, but I flew through those edits and VOILA!

Here it is!! Yayyy again! I freaking love this cover. This guy, with the stubble and the back muscles and the grin… yum! And her! Look at that body!

I think it’s time! For what you ask? A little taste of what to expect from Epic Love when she goes live March 22nd!

CAUTION XXX RATED

Bash reached out a hand and laced his fingers with hers, pulling her in until the length of her body pressed against his. The nervous anticipation she’d had earlier when she’d thought about being alone with him returned ten-fold. Her heart raced, pumping heated blood through her limbs, lighting her nerves on fire. She folded into him, staring up at him through a haze of lust.

 All signs of excitement faded from Bash’s face, replaced by an instant awareness. His mouth slipped open as he gasped in a breath, drawing Zoey’s attention to his beautiful lips.

 They were so tempting, firm yet soft, and she knew they were delicious. The tiny taste she’d gotten in the cab now seemed a tease, a promise of more. She raised up on her tip toes and reached for his neck with trembling hands.

 Bash met her halfway, scooping her into his arms. He twisted and pressed her against the wall just next to the obscure opening they’d discovered together. She gasped in desire when his big hands delved into her hair, tugging at the roots, as his lips crushed against hers.

 He tasted different this time, like the red wine they’d sipped downstairs. But, underneath, was the real flavor, his unique taste, and it drove Zoey wild. She licked out her tongue, lapping at him, wanting to taste all of him, wondering what his body would taste like.

 The fine hairs all over Zoey’s body stood on end, straining to be touched. Zoey ground her hips against Bash’s abdomen, urging him on, needing so much more than he was giving at the moment. His response was to tug her hair even harder, to the side, and settle his teeth and lips on her neck.

 The feel of his tongue as it slid over the tiny hurt he’d inflicted with his teeth made Zoey cry out. She’d never been a vocal lover, had never been swept away like her favorite heroines in the books she loved to read. Even before Hayden, she’d enjoyed sex, but it hadn’t been mind-blowing or awe-inspiring. This, though, this time would be different. Bash was different.

 His torso held her in place as his hands left her hair and began to explore her body. Up and down her length he traveled, touching softly then pulling and grabbing with intent. He moved so quickly, touched so much, that she never had a moment to acclimatize. Zoey’s nerves danced, exploding all over, driving her into a frenzy. She writhed against the wall, clutching at his neck and shoulders, clawing her nails into his skin in desperation.

 Bash growled deep in his throat and grabbed her around the waist, lowering her to the floor. Zoey’s legs wobbled as her knees threatened to give way. She sucked in deep gasps of oxygen, trying to understand why Bash had stepped away from her. He crossed the room quickly, his gait a little crooked, and slammed the door to the storage room shut, deftly locking the door.

 “I don’t want any interruptions,” he rasped.

 Zoey’s heart soared and she ran to him, throwing herself into his open arms and sealing her lips to his. His tongue flicked out to taste her and she bit down on it, then sucked it into her mouth. His arms came around her body and lifted her and then she was being walked backward while he licked and sucked her lips. She yelped and dissolved into giggles when she flew through the air and landed on a couch covered with a white sheet.

 Bash’s long body covered her in an instant and his lips returned to hers. His clever hands danced over her clothes, moving down over her hips to the hem of her dress. Zoey threw back her head, encouraging him to move to her neck, one of her favorite erogenous zones, and then sighed in abject pleasure when he licked from her jaw to her clavicle. His teeth grazed the bone there, then moved to her shoulder, making every part of her brain melt. Only one thought remained, that she needed to touch him.

 Zoey reached for his sweater and started tugging it over his head. Bash paused from his goal for a moment to tear the offending piece of clothing off his body then tossed it to the floor. She froze. Her entire awareness narrowed and all she could see or hear or know was Bash’s chest. His shoulders were wider than she’d ever seen on a man in real life, then he cut down at an angle to a waist that was…she swallowed hard and reached out tentatively, stroking her fingertips over the indentations his heaving muscles made. Her mouth watered.

 A second later, Bash’s fingers grasped the top of her tights, along with her panties, and pulled them roughly down her legs. They stopped abruptly on her shoes and he cursed, then pulled her heels from her feet and shucked her tights, leaving her naked from the waist down and completely ready.

 They locked eyes, neither moving as they each breathed raggedly. Bash’s eyes questioned her, asked for permission, as his hand hovered above her junction, waiting to dip into her hot sex.

 Zoey looked up at him through half-closed eyes, feeling more desirable than she ever had, and nodded. She opened her legs to accept him.

 His eyes stayed on hers as he slipped a finger into her folds and slid against the bundle of nerves there. The sensation was so intense that she mewled and thrust her hips up, begging for more. With a dead sexy grin, Bash let his digits move lower, finding the opening to her body, and thrust inside.

AND… you’ll have to buy the book to get the rest!!! 

Again, Epic Love is going live on March 22nd and it’ll be available on the Evernight Website as well as Amazon!!! I’ll be dropping the links here and on my Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Let me know what you think! I love reviews!!!

Marches in like a lion…

… marches out like a lamb.

Here in Newfoundland, that little adage is an oldie but a goodie, and it’s usually right. And if my newest acceptance by Evernight Publishing is the lion, busting it’s way in, I wonder what the lamb will look like.

Yes, another acceptance letter!! Yayyyyy!

It’s called EPIC LOVE and it’s the first of a five part series called MASTERCLASS. It takes place in the oldest settlement in North America, St. John’s, Newfoundland, and centers around a Masters English program. The kicker? HOT PROFS!!!

Who doesn’t love sitting in class, watching an extremely hot professor talk passionately about something they love? God know I do! Which is why I decided to write this sexy little series. They’re all short stories, around 12,000 words each, and they’ll be published through Evernight’s Romance on the go line. Romance for busy people! I love it!

I don’t know what my cover will look like, yet, but I like to pict023a48030f034ae30577cc14b5b4cd15ure this guy right here when I do…

Can I get an AMEN!? Here’s the blurb…

Zoey Matthews’ life is finally back on track after years of pretending to be the perfect suburban wife. She’s doing what she wants now, and has returned to her alma mater to complete a Masters in English literature. Despite trying, she doesn’t quite fit in with her classmates, which is why she’s so excited when her friend Rachel, a professor in the department, introduces her to some of her co-workers.

Dr. Sebastian Lane makes Zoey’s knees go weak the moment she sees him. After years of being lonely, she’s finally found someone who makes her body come to life, so when the sparks fly, she follows where they lead.

Will they lead her on a mysterious adventure or straight into his arms?

COMING SOON!!! In the meantime, check out my other title, Finding the right words, at Evernight Publishing!

 

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year!! (17 days after the fact)

Yup, I’m a bit behind when it comes to New Years posts, but better late than never, right? Then again, I’m 17 days late and it’s 2017…. maybe I tried it.

So, what’s new this year?

Well, I’m going to  be finishing up my paranormal series with book III, SINS OF THE FATHER this year. I can’t wait for that! It’ll be later in the year, though, so calm down.

In the meantime, however, rest assured that I am thinking of you. I’m writing some short stories, four to be exact, about Katherine’s life before she meets Quinn. Each short story takes place during a different decade and gives a little glimpse into what makes Katherine the strong woman she is.

The first short story was published in a Halloween anthology so I don’t have the rights back to it, yet, but it’s called EYES HAVE SEEN and it’s, obviously, a Halloween themed story. It just happens to take place during the 1920’s.

The next story, the first one to be separately published, is called NUMBER THE STARS, and it’s a new century story featuring Katherine and a very sexy Irishpexels-photo-220122.jpg wolf that helps her out of a bad situation. That book is FREE!!!

They’ll all be free once they’re published, but NUMBER THE STARS is free right now for NOOK & KOBO. It’ll be available for free on Amazon very soon. (I’ll let you know)

So, Happy New Year from me to you!!!

XOXOXO

Sasha Reed is a stressed out best-selling romance Author who hasn’t written a usable word in months. So when a gorgeous stranger hits on her, she goes for it. After all, she’ll never see him again. Only she does, months later, when she accepts her agent’s offer to summer in her family’s cottage just outside Belfast, Maine.

Reid Davis, local bookstore owner and town’s most eligible bachelor, seems keen to restart their romance and Sasha’s game.

The heat is still there and they fall straight into one another’s arms. Then Sasha makes a startling discovery… she’s pregnant and the only candidate for father is Reid. Sasha decides to get to know him better before dropping the news.

It might be hormones but Sasha finds herself falling in love. She’s terrified to say the wrong thing and lose him but she’s also worried about doing the right thing for herself and her baby. What could go wrong?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Author besties and why you need some!

Yesterday, I introduced you to one of my Author besties, a Newfoundland Author that I’ve known for years, J. Margot Critch (Juanita), and today I’m going to introduce you to another.

I met Candace Osmond on Facebook through an amazing group of all Newfoundland Authors called Romancing the Rock. I was added by Juanita and, without ever having met any of the other members in real life, was completely excited to have a group of like-minded people to chat with.

Then someone commented that to Candace that she wasn’t the only member on the west coast of the island anymore. West coast?!? I’m from the west coast! Who was this woman?

So we made plans to meet at Tims, a satisfyingly Canadian institution, to chat and see if we had anything in common besides writing. Yeah…we were like the same person, in different bodies, with a few exceptions!15319514_10154599430716163_1743151027_n

Since that day, the three of us, Candace, Juanita, and I, have become a trio of awesomeness, with the single goal of bolstering one another and lending support in whatever way we can. This way often includes wine. Through this friendship, I’ve found two women who have seen me through some pretty down moments and celebrated with me in the up moments. We’ve shared every breakthrough and newly gleaned piece of publishing or marketing information with one another and because of it, we’ve all become stronger at our craft.

You already know that Juanita, or J. Margot Crtich, writes super sexy Harlequin Blaze novels, but she’s also published a few others. She has an amazing Newfoundland based contemporary romance series called Brewed Moon with book I, Bump & Grind. Already out and the second, Double Shot to the Heart, coming very soon. They’re steamy, suspenseful, cop romances and you’ll love them!

Now Candace, she’s our dark romance girl. Her first book, became book one of The Iron World Series, is a paranormal romance. Growing up surrounded by Irish culture on the island of Fogo, Newfoundland, Candace got an early education in Celtic folklore, including everything faerie. That education gave her a rich background of knowledge to pick and choose from for her trilogy, and it shows. The first book in the series, Iron and Wine, is permafree on Amazon, so there’s literally nothing hold you back from getting it on your eReader now! As for her other books, The Donor, an Orphan Black type romance about cloning, and Killer Me, a psychological thriller with a hint of romance, you should definitely go get them right now! I love them all, but I have a special spot in my heart for Killer Me. It’s like Dexter, but staring a kick ass female lead!

Being an Author is often quiet, lonely work, but knowing these two chicks are just a click away, makes my job a hell of a lot more entertaining!

We get by with a little help from our friends…

I’ve had a pretty big month.
MBK EBOOK RGB.JPGDuring the month of November, I’ve published 2 novels and worked with an editor on a new release that is coming out in just 9 days! I’ve also been a wife and a mother, and I’ve worked.
So, it came as no surprise to me when I yesterday
I got to the point where enough was enough and my body said “stop.”
Today I stopped. I didn’t write, I didn’t work, I didn’t mom (for a good portion of the day). I relaxed, watched some tv, and read a book.
15202514_205580683181120_2670466331186398796_n
I can’t remember the last time I read an entire book in a day. I’m usually so busy writing them. But, today I read an upcoming release by one of my author besties, J. Margot Critch, and it was wonderful! It’s called In Her Best Friend’s Bed, and it knocked my socks off! It was seriously sexy!
This book is a continuation of her first Harlequin, In the Boss’s Bed, which was fantastic! In that story, the lead characters of this book, Trevor and Abby, are introduced. Since I loved the first book, I was postively shocked to realize that I loved this story even more! Trevor and Abby are young and still trying to find themselves, a state which I know very well, although I’m not quite as young as I used to be.
The passion is palpable and leaps from the pages, you will not want to put this one down. At one point in the story, I gasped. I GASPED!!  How’s that for a story that draws you in!
So, if you’re tired, worn out, or really happy and just have a day to celebrate, check her out. You won’t regret it.
