Let's Talk About The Elephant In The Room ...

 
I just wanted to touch base with everyone - a central place with a little more freedom than private messages and Facebook walls. I guess by now we all know it's December and there's still no clear release date for Testing Fate ...
 
What does that mean?
 
It means I really don't like being vague. Whenever I'm asked, my standard answer has become "I don't know yet" or "I'm waiting for the go ahead from my editor" or my favorite ... "It's coming soon." I want you all to know that it bothers me to say that - I want nothing more than to say "It's going to be released such and such ... SQUEE!" Unfortunately, life doesn't always work that way no matter how much I ask it sweetly. Believe me, I've tried.
 
When I first announced the December date, it was with a hopeful heart. I anticipated no hiccups with nothing but smooooooth sailing. *chuckles* Hands up anyone whose life ever goes EXACTLY the way we want it to *looks around* Me neither.
 
I recently changed editors. It was necessary and what it means is not only is the book subject to my life and priorities, but also hers. What I also didn't take into account was other editing obligations and Christmas. Family always takes precedence ... even in front of Mason, Darcy, and Devlin *chuckles* Thankfully they're not as ornery as Quinn. He wouldn't care and demand I cater to him. Sexy jerk!
 
So do I have a release date yet? No.
What do I have? Three very strong FACTS
 
Fact #1 - Testing Fate will be BY FAR the best book in the series to date.
Fact #2 - I have one of the best editors I've ever worked with helping me polish the book. I love having that kind of confidence and Testing Fate will SPARKLE.
Fact #3 - Waiting just a little longer will be a VERY distant memory once you get a copy. A lot happens in the book - things you've been waiting for ... and some that you'll never see coming.
 
 
I love you all so much. Thank you for all the support you've not only given me but the series. You've embraced the Mystic Wolves - claimed the characters for your own and it means so much! I promise in the meantime to share teasers, torture you all a little less, and find fun ways to celebrate the series!
 
Happy swooning everyone!!

Surprise - The Other "S" Word I Love!



For those of you who know me, one of the things I LOVE doing is teasing everyone. Okay ... you all call it torturing but it's always done with good intentions. Well, I wanted to let you in on another quirk I have -
 
I also LOVE surprises.
 
Never on me, though. I'm very impatient and not knowing what's going on is one of the quickest ways to drive me crazy. Nope, I love giving others a surprise - in fact, that was how the Mystic Wolves was published. Do you remember? Everyone went to bed and I was just The Bookish Snob, romance reviewer/blogger. Come morning, I excitedly declared "Woohoo everyone, look what I did. My first every short story Without Mercy is now available. I'm a published author!" That was over a year ago and I've never forgotten the response. Thank you for making this series a best seller.
 
So, what does that have to do with anything?
 
Everything because today I have a SURPRISE ...
 the EARLY reveal of Forget Me Not's NEW cover!!
 
 
 
Between you and me, I get a little giddy with Mason looking at me like that ...
all swoony, smoldery, and I-want-to-ravish-you-right-here-right-now!
 
Once again a HUGE thank you to Regina at MaeIDesigns for this amazing cover. She has a natural gift for being able to take the vision of an author and make it real!
 
For those who haven't read Forget Me Not yet, here's the buy links!
Remember the first book, The Mystic Wolves is FREE
 
 
To celebrate this release, I'm have more goodies to give away:
  

 
Coming soon ...
Testing Fate's new cover reveal!
 
Happy Swooning!

The Shaman's Mate Blog Tour with Donna McDonald

 
When an unfamiliar fellow park ranger walks up moments after he prays for help, Jason sends his gratitude out into the universe for answering his call. The last thing Jason ever suspected would happen was for the same man to return to abduct him. But now Hania and his people are insisting that he make good on his promises to repay his karmic debt to them.  Jason is not opposed to helping the Chileaans, or their beautiful Shaman, but it’s what they want him to do that’s the problem.
 
 
I'm excited to have author Donna McDonald here today and be part of her The Shaman's Mate blog tour! She's shared an excerpt from her latest release ... enjoy then click through one the buy links and grab a copy!
 
“Jason…” she called his name, and then collapsed in a heap at his feet, her hands sliding down his body. She wrapped her arms around his legs because she simply had to touch some part of him to believe it was real.
 
Aiyana looked across the room, pain in her heart for yet another misdeed she had done to the man at her door. “I’m sorry for this situation, Cheveyo. I truly did not expect Jason to return to me, but I am glad he has.”
 
Cheveyo looked at him with the most hateful look Jason had ever received from another person.
“There is no dishonor here, Aiyana,” Cheveyo said softly. “I serve Shaman Aiyana, who serves the Great Mother. If you have need of me, I too will return to you.” He bowed his head to her and left, not sparing Jason another glance.
 
Jason looked down at the woman wrapped around his legs and wondered what had possessed him to stake a claim. What was it to him if the woman bonded with the whole tribe? But thinking of Cheveyo at her door, he was pleased he’d sent the man away. God help him—maybe he felt a sense of duty growing for her. Somehow he instinctively knew that Shaman Aiyana’s ascension wouldn’t happen with anyone but him. Walking through Aiyana’s door moments ago, he was following some inner voice that demanded he help her, regardless of what form that help took.
 
As he pulled Aiyana up into his arms again, the voices he’d heard when he kissed her started chanting again. This time though the chanting perfectly matched the heat in his blood as he studied Aiyana’s nearly naked body. This time when desire for her moved through him, Jason accepted it physically, even though he still had to work at setting the emotional guilt aside. His body was insisting that he be with her. There seemed to be no other choice.

Top Secret Project ... REVEALED!!



If you've been on Facebook the past few days, you know I have a secret. Actually, it's a secret project that consists of three sections. In keeping with my Queen of Torture nature, I've been pretty tight lipped about it - a surprise for me because I'm notorious for NOT being able to keep a secret. Somehow I've managed to go almost 3 weeks ... yep, I deserve a medal or something. Maybe a statue. Or a day named after me ... just sayin'.
I've had some fun with it as well. Did you all see these posts?




Hahahaha - yep, I've been laughing all day while peeking out my window for any lynch mobs and impatient readers. What can I say? I like to tease!

So what's the SECRET??

I could continue going on and on and on .... maybe post some more vague and cryptic pictures OR I can just show you. What do you think?

Okay ... here you go ...




The Mystic Wolves series has received a SWOONWORTHY makeover!!
Here is the first cover, designed by the INCREDIBLE

 Regina Wamba of MaeIDesign!

She is AMAZING and created me the PERFECT covers!

Take a moment to stroke the screen!!

I am so excited to begin revealing them. When I first released Without Mercy (now included of the first book) it was part of an anthology. It was never meant to become a series so I decided to just have Darcy on the cover. As the series grew and grew, I knew I would need to one day revamp so I could have both Darcy and Mason together so VOILA!!

Isn't he AMAZING??

So this is PART ONE of my reveal. Coming soon is Forget Me Not and Testing Fate's new look - both will look just as HAWT as this one!

Don't FORGET ... this book is FREE


To celebrate, I'm doing a giveaway!

I have Mystic Wolves Goodies that include:


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Happy swooning everyone!!

Tempted By The Storm Blog Tour!

Today I have author Maxine Mansfield visiting as part of her Tempted by the Storm blog tour! Maxine writes erotic fantasy that's guaranteed to get your heart pumping and body swooning!
 

Genre: Erotic Fantasy
Heat level: 4, Scarlet Rose
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Release date: November 9, 2012

Larksong Hammerstrike has always been just the younger sister of Princess Aryanna. Never quite as pretty or as smart, always lacking, a mere empath whose power gets her into trouble more often than not. But at Carnalval, the festival of all things sexual, she unleashes her sensual side for a night in the arms of a masked stranger. When morning dawns, Lark can't resist a peek beneath the mask of her lover and is once again crushed by fate. The man of her lusty adventure is none other than the future Lord of the High Elves and destined to marry her sister. As heir to the kingdom of Landis and current instructor of wizardry at the Academy of Magical Arts, Sarco Sunwalker is honor bound to rise above the temptation of the beautiful empathic student who invades his mind, body, and soul. But when sparks fly, lightning strikes, and thunder rolls, Sarco finds himself more than tempted by the storm of Lark's passion and vows to find a solution that will prevent a war between races, fulfill an infamous quest, and win Lark's hand.


Here's an excerpt to tease you with ...

There was only one word that could describe the creature standing before him. Wonderful.
“Did you say something?” the woman whispered.
He shook his head. “Nothing, I just can’t believe my luck. You really are real and here with me.”
She smiled, but her smile didn’t extend to her eyes.
Before another heartbeat passed or another breath taken, he stood at her side. With tenderness, he gazed into her gentle, masked face and took both of her hands in his. He was humbled as her fingers trembled even more than his own did. “We don’t have to do this if you’d rather not.”
She smiled wider, and her eyes gleamed with mischief. “I suppose we might as well. After all, we’re already here, and you’re at least halfway undressed.”
Sliding his hands up her arms and around her shoulders to her back, Sarco felt for and found the clasps holding her gown together. With the flick of a wrist, they gave way, and with a swish, the silky fabric fell to her hips exposing lush, rose-tipped breasts. Just the right size to hold in both hands, to fondle, to caress, to taste.
“Hmm, it seems you’re halfway undressed yourself.”
