Snippet from "I Love You S'More"


“Surprise, beautiful.” He brushed a faint kiss over my lips, leaving an even fainter taste of something behind. I couldn’t help it. I licked my lips and caught the familiar flavor of mint. 

“Mmmm.” I touched his mouth again, hoping to capture more as I licked the pad of my thumb. “Peppermint?”

“Candy cane. I couldn’t resist swiping one from the Christmas tree in the main living room.” He winked and my insides flip flopped. Mason didn’t hold himself back when it came to flirting with me and I wondered if I’d ever get used to it.
“Well, it was delicious.”

“Then, by all means, have another taste.”



Snippet from "Is That An Elf On Your Shelf?"


“Okay, ‘fess up. Who does this belong to?”
Placing the toy elf on the island counter, I glared at the three I felt were the guiltiest. Mason was busy helping Darcy set the table for dinner while Jasmine was searching the refrigerator for something.
“Huh?” she asked, sticking her head out for a moment. It still seemed strange seeing Mason’s little sister all grown up, her blonde hair in a high ponytail. Well, not as weird as the feelings that stirred within me when I saw her. I knew she had a small crush on me; and if it weren’t for the fact that I knew Mason would kick my ass for even looking at her twice, I’d definitely make a move. 

She was beautiful and totally unassuming in how she affected people. As hard as it was for me, she was on my forbidden fruit list. There was no way I’d run the risk of hurting her and ruining our relationship. Besides, crush or not, I was pretty sure she saw me as another brother.
“This.” I pointed at the elf, again. “Whoever thinks they can prank me needs to think again. There’s only one jokester in this Pack and it’s me.” I snorted with disgust as all three of them laughed. “It’s not funny. It’s creepy.”

Note from Belinda:

I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year. Thank you so much for all your support and love this past year, and I’m looking forward to a swoon-filled 2014. I have a lot planned with new stories, more books from the Mystic Wolves, and fun events. I hope to see you there!

Live. Laugh. Swoon. ALWAYS.

The Release Day Diva & The Bookishsnob Promotions HALLOWEEN Blog Hop!!


WOOOHOOO! It's that time of the year again ... for spooky things that go bump in the night! If you know me, you know that kind of thing scares the PANTS OFF ME! I'm all about the swoon and not the spook ... give me fluffy bunnies, glittery unicorns, and butterflies *winks*

But, in the spirit of fun, here I am ... trying not to jump at my own shadow as I share one of my "favorite" Halloween memories. Hmm, well, I was born in Australia so we didn't really do the whole Trick Or Treat thing. We didn't really celebrate October 31st so ... how about I share how I deal with being SCARED?

If I have to pee in the middle of the night, I wake up my hubby and make him "escort" me to the bathroom. First, ALL lights must be turned on. He needs to check under the bed and any place something MONSTER can hide. They can be real tricksters with ninja skills, so my feet won't touch the ground until he's checked. Then it's a MAD DASH to the bathroom before he "escorts" me back to bed. 

Laugh all you want, but it's traumatic!! I remember watching House on Haunted Hill (I claim temporary moment of INSANITY) and was PARANOID the meat cleaving doctor was coming for me. I sat up in bed, refusing to close my eyes, adamant I was going to be vigilant! Well, needless to say, I feel asleep and when I realized, I woke up to find my daughter standing at the door! I SCREEEEAAAMMMMEEEEDDD!! So yeah. I don't like scary. Hahaha

Anywho ... that's my damage ... I mean story, so what am I giving away?

How about my Mystic Wolves ebooks and swag??
Sounds good? Here's how you enter ...


Follow along on the HOP ... stop by The Bookishsnob Promotions for your chance to win a KINDLE!! Good Luck!

Introducing Maddison Rose ...


For me, it really is ALL ABOUT THE SWOON and when I decided to publish, that's the kind of romance I wanted to write. Two years later, I'm interested in heating things up a little ... sexier but still ME ... that same swoon factor but with a little something special added. *winks* Even though I write adult romance, I've kept my books pretty clean ... hot kisses that curl your toes, sexual tension and anticipation. Lately I've worried if I spiced things up, it may be a shock (for want of a better word) to those who've come to expect it. I recently posted on my wall this question, and I got a mixture of reactions. So what do I do?

It got me thinking and I've finally made a decision. In my mind, there's two reasons why an author would use a pen name--to hide their identity, and to separate/distinguish between genre/styles. Authors like JR Ward and Sherrilyn Kenyon have done the later and that's why I'd like to introduce ... Maddison Rose! Yes, Maddison is ME so when you see books released by this name, know you'll be getting stories that are sexier. This way YOU, the reader, get to choose and I get to write the stories the way I want--a total WIN/WIN!!



Please feel free to friend Maddison on FB. I'll be keeping that account updated and I have books planned already. I'm excited for this next part in my career, excited to share the characters and stories in my head.

Watch out for the upcoming cover reveal for Maddison's DEBUT novel!

The Power of Awesome!


If you're anything like me, doubts always seem to be stalking you . . . waiting for the perfect chance to ninja-roll and attack! They don't ever strike when you're on top of your game and loving life. No, these pesky critters wait until they see you pause and then BAM!! Next thing you know, your smile is now a frown, and the bright, shiny confidence you've enjoyed is shredded.

Sucks, huh?

Some of the best advice I've ever been given is to give yourself permission to be 

AWESOME!!

Yep, that might sound strange, but just as we let ourselves slip into a funk and wallow around in self-doubt, we also need to tell ourselves it's OKAY to succeed, it's OKAY to be happy, and it's definitely OKAY to reach for our dreams and claim them. There's nothing wrong with believing in ourselves and having the hope that then motivates us to pursue every opportunity within our reach. Hold on tight to the hope that stirs in our hearts and take as many leaps of faith as necessary. Be brave because you never know where your courage will lead you. All it takes is one step ... and then another ... and then another. Before you know it, life is amazing and even if it throws challenges your way, you can handle them.

So be positive. Choose happiness. 
And don't forget ... BE AWESOME!!

Because honestly, that's who you ARE!

What Am I Working On?


Hey, hey, everyone! 

Just wanted to touch base with you all and keep you posted on what I'm currently working on and the plans I have for the rest of 2013. There's only 3 months left and they're going to be BUSY ones. So please .... think of me, send chocolate, and someone hook me up to an IV filled with ENERGY!

*winks*

So here's what's happening ....


Official Blurb: 

Waking up after an amazing night with her new husband and mate, nothing could've prepared Darcy for the epic bombshell Devlin dropped—explaining her heritage and revealing truths that completely blow her mind.  When all she wants is to settle into marital bliss and pack life, Darcy's world is once again thrown into turmoil, forced to face a challenge that may very well destroy everything she’s fought so hard to preserve.

Not one to sit back and watch the one he loves more than life itself in danger, Mason immediately formulates a plan of action—taking a small group of trusted friends across the United States in the hot pursuit of answers. Time is running out, though. With every attempt to control Darcy's wild magic thwarted, and the dark presence of evil dogging their every move, Mason and Darcy will be left with no other choice but to make a stand—fight or risk losing everything they cherish most.

Decisions will be made. Love will be pushed to breaking point. Mason and Darcy face their greatest challenge, one that will leave them … FOREVER CHANGED.

Snippet: 


"Mason interrupted. “I don’t care about you, Enforcer. The only thing that matters is my mate. You’ve lied to her her whole life so no . . . I won’t give you time. Speak now or so help me, I’ll rip the answer from your throat.” Electricity sparked in the air as Mason’s wolf surfaced, ready to honor his threat.
“Are you threatening me?” Devlin straightened and fixed his glance on Mason. It was a blatant show of defiance, one that Mason would normally ignore, but with him already in a heightened state, I knew he would see it as a challenge.
“When you upset Darcy? Hell yes I am.”


Broken Trust

Find out what happens now Bri has succumbed to the Fae charm and what that means for her and Quinn. Just when you think you have it all figured out ... I throw in a twist that will leave you REELING!! Cover to come soon!!

Cover Reveal: Jagged Edges



I'm currently working on a few projects and here is one of them ... Jagged Edges. This is a New Adult contemporary romance and one I'm VERY excited about! 

Tentative Blurb: 

They say that living is easy, but for Sydney London, each breath she takes feels like agony. Weighed down by a grief that all but shattered her young heart, her father sends her to live with his sister, hoping a different environment will re-ignite her enthusiasm for life.

Knowing she needs to, Sydney struggles with letting go of the past, the painful scars slow to fade. When Adam Stone approaches with his confident smile and easy going personality, she takes one look at him and shrinks away. Everything about him screams danger--from his messy hair, ripped jeans, and lip ring. He wants friendship, but his eyes tell Sydney he wants something more, something she can't ... won't ever give another person again.

The heart does interesting things when we least expect it, softening when all we want is to keep ourselves protected. Can Sydney keep Adam at arm's length? Or will he get close enough to see all her jagged edges?

Expected release date: the end of 2013.

Loving Liberty Author Note.

Loving Liberty has been out for two weeks now and the feedback I've been receiving has me grinning BIG! This story was such an important and special one for me to write--pieces of my heart woven amongst the words.

For those who haven't read it yet, or didn't see the very end, I included an Author's Notes where I explained the journey of Loving Liberty--my experiences with bullies. I thought I'd share it with everyone today and offer some insight into why Liberty is the way she is. Whether you've dealt personally with controlling influences or not, it's a story that triggers compassion. Oh that we could all have the perfect lives we long for. Unfortunately, we're not all so lucky, BUT its about overcoming those challenges that make us stronger ... becoming SURVIVORS, victims no more.

I hope you enjoy the following. Thanks for all your support!


Loving Liberty is unlike any other book I’ve written.
When I first started, there was definitely a theme I wanted the story to capture—finding love, and yourself, despite opposition. What I didn’t anticipate, however, was how deeply Liberty’s journey would touch my heart, or how much of my own life would end up on these pages.

Unlike Liberty, my opposition didn’t come from my parents or family. I was blessed to grow up surrounded by love, encouragement, and the freedom I needed to succeed. Even now, my parents are my biggest cheerleaders, never missing an opportunity to remind me how proud they are.

No, my opposition came in the form of bullies.

I’m a survivor of bullying. I know the frustration, pain, and confusion of being a people pleaser; of watching everything I said and did, because I never knew when the next attack would come. I grew up being hyper-vigilant of my surroundings. I learned to never excel at anything that would bring attention, and always kept to the shadows. It was safer that way—it hurt less.

I had things stolen and broken, I was ordered about and told what and when to do things, I ate my lunch in the bathroom, and was ridiculed, hit, and received death threats. I endured years and years of living under the control of bullies. I didn’t graduate from high school; choosing, instead, to walk away rather than continue enduring the pain. Even then, the bullies followed. They attacked my self-esteem, making me believe that I was good for nothing—a simple play toy for cruel people.

Why am I sharing this? Because, like Liberty, there came a point where I decided that enough was enough. For those living in the shadows, standing up to others will always be a risk, but it’s a necessary one. The moment it becomes more uncomfortable to remain silent and compliant, than to make a change, is the time to step out in courage and create your own future.

No one likes to be controlled. I didn’t like giving my power to others, who didn’t deserve it. I wanted more from my life than cowering, scared, waiting to be hurt. I had dreams to achieve. We all do. It’s sad, though, when we allow ourselves to believe we are something less because we were never given the opportunity to see how truly magnificent we are.

For whatever reason, we all have things that hold us back—fear, doubt, insecurities, and controlling influences. We may lack the support needed to live out our dreams, or there may be people pulling us down. Sometimes, it’s our own lack of belief in ourselves that holds us back—we don’t believe we deserve happiness or realize that the risks are worth taking. We focus on failing, the idea of success a mere pipedream that is out of reach.

 So, we settle for being less than who we are. We allow others to determine our identity and our ability. We forget we are all destined for great things.

I hope the message you take away from Loving Liberty is to always be yourself. Discover those things that bring you bliss and do whatever it takes to create your own happiness. Life is too short to live it pleasing others while ignoring your own needs. Don’t let someone else control your future—you decide, your rules.

It’s not easy.  But I tell you, just like Oliver told Liberty, be brave.

Mystic Wolves Update.



Happy Friday, everyone! I answer this question a lot, sometimes multiple times a day, so here's an announcement about Forever Changed, 4th book in the Mystic Wolves series.

Many have asked why they can't find Forever Changed on Amazon or B&N. I'm still currently working on the story, and plan on releasing it at the end of this year. If it can be done sooner, it will, but as of today, there is no official release date. Once the story is completed and in the hands of my editor, I'll make that announcement.

As for the cover of Forever Changed ... make sure you join the anniversary event this Saturday. All kinds of surprises happening then!

I'm so excited for this book! I'm excited for all upcoming projects. Thank you for all your support and remember ... it's all about the SWOON! MUAH!

The Butterfly.


I believe everything happens for a reason. That things aren't always just random events, but can work together to bring hope and meaning. I love butterflies. I love what they represent and the reminder that transformations are possible--that we can be beautiful and fly. That through struggle, no matter how painful, we have potential for greatness. It's not a matter of "if" but "when'.


I was researching one of my next writing projects and was amazed to discover that when I chose the butterfly to be my totem, it had more meaning than I could've ever imagined. Whatever story I work on, I put pieces of me into it. (those who've read the author note in Loving Liberty understand). I'm just so excited to see how everything comes together. Once again, I know I'm on the right path ♥ 

Just wanted to share! *grins*
