Tempt 3 is LIVE & Tempt 1 is FREE!

Volume 3

Tempt: Volume 3 is here! AND Tempt: Volume 1 is now FREE on all platforms!

And you know what else? I am so in love with this series! Things have gotten hot and intense in Tempt 3 and it only gets hotter and intenser (yes, I’m stretching the limits of English right now, go with it!) in Tempt 4 (which is coming very soon!) Scroll down for the information you need and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! xoxo


Fight or flight, the most basic human response. A moment where you have to decide whether to risk everything or run away. Once you choose, there’s no going back.

I never guessed the problems that followed Theo Sutherland could be so dark. It was almost impossible to believe that the quiet billionaire was actually a criminal. And not just any criminal, but a brilliant thief-turned-traitor with a bounty on his head.

Being with Theo was dangerous for both my heart and my safety. But together…oh, together we were magic. Passion and emotion that exploded in the most intense pleasure I’d ever known. Theo knew me without knowing anything about me. It was as if he filled up the parts of me that never felt quite whole.
How could I walk away from that? People went their whole lives without ever feeling what we’d built in a few short months. I honestly didn’t know how I was going to choose when the time came, and the time was coming fast. The past was ready for revenge and the only question was whether it took me down with it.

Tempt 3 LIVE

Tempt: Volume 1 is now FREE everywhere! Find out what Tempt is all about!

One heartbeat.

That’s all that separates us from the life we’ve known and everything that could change it.

One kiss.

Was all it took to change mine.

Theo was rich and handsome, brilliant and powerful, but he wasn’t a hero or a prince charming. And let’s be honest, I wasn’t exactly a damsel in distress. I wanted Theo, so I took him. Hard and passionately without any regard for the consequences.

At first it was just sex. Wild sex. Fantastic sex. But once wasn’t enough and I got greedy. In all fairness, so did he. One thing led to another and before either of us knew what was happening our lives were tangled up and messy. Inextricably linked. I’d fallen in love with a stranger.

And that was the problem.

Theo Sutherland was a man with a dark past and a price on his head. My life was at stake just for being with him.

One kiss was all it took to make me believe in love.

One heartbeat was all it took to turn him into the hero he never thought he’d be.

First Draught: Size Matters

Hey gang! This month First Draught tackled size. Of books. We sat around in a virtual circle and discussed the differences between novels and novellas, short stories, series, and serials. It was a good time and everyone got a good laugh out of my drink.

Just to clarify, it was a whiskey and tonic not just a giant glass of whiskey. I’m stressed, but not that stressed!

Mary Chris also coined the new word #interlapping.

Check out the show on YouTube, Soundcloud, or iTunes and stop back next month when we tackle getting ready for RWA!! Woot!

Stripped 3 is Now Available (and what’s up in 2015)

Stripped 3 apart

Happy New Year!! I kinda can’t believe it’s actually the year 2015. When I was a kid, thinking of years that began in 2 sounded like science fiction. And now here we are, well into those years, and we have most of the stuff I wanted on Star Trek: The Next Generation! Tablet computer? Check. Information at my fingertips? Check? Print anything in three dimensions? Check and check.

The list goes on.

So what am I up to in 2015? A little sci-fi actually. And some action adventure. Plus my usual smattering of romances! It’s going to be a good year! But first, Stripped 3 just went live at Amazon! There is just one more installment left in this serial!

Here is a very loose list (expect it to change dramatically) of what you can expect for the next few months:

January: Stripped 3 & 4, When Lightning Strikes

March: The Unspoken Game

April/May/June: The Butterfly Rebellion, One Week in Hawaii

After that, if I survive, I’d really like to do a fourth book in The Storm Inside series, and pick up where Adam and Elizabeth left off in Tease 5. But one step at a time, and of course only if it makes sense sales wise. I love to write, but it is also a business and if one series isn’t connecting with readers, it will move to the back burner.

So for now, check out Stripped 3 and keep your eyes peeled for news on When Lighting Strikes! Happy New Year!

My Shelf Monday: Lauren’s Return by AL Parks


This is the third book in the Return to Me series by AL Parks and I thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I’ve enjoyed the rest! The suspense gets taken up a notch in this go-round as Jake and Eve settle in to their new lives (together) in Colorado. There is also a freaking awesome mountain home involved, a daughter whose custody is on the line, and a killer bent on keeping our couple apart.

I told you the suspense was heavier in this book!


Here we are all dressed up at RWA!

I enjoyed reading every word and couldn’t put the book down. AL continues to develop each of these characters both individually and as a couple, which is a big part of why I enjoy this series so much. The story changes, but the characters grow with each book. We also get a closer look into the personalities and lives of each of their daughters. If you are looking for a good book, check out Lauren’s Return and the entire Return to Me series by AL Parks! (And DUDE, it’s only $2.99!)

Get it here: Lauren’s Return (Return To Me Book 3)

All good things come to an end, and Adam Callaway was really, really good—in bed and in life. But his two week vacation is almost over and Elizabeth’s life is more complicated than ever. She’s being forced into a publicity firestorm by her greedy parents with the help of her blackmailing ex-boyfriend.

 One Week in Wyoming – Alexis Anne, Audra North, Julia Kelly & Alexandra Haughton

Four couples, seven hot winter nights…
When best-selling romance author Nora Halliday invites four single female writers to stay at her family’s luxurious Wyoming lodge, she’s counting on a quiet week of bonding on the slopes and in the spa.

Bruce Halliday was looking forward to a relaxing reunion with his college buddies in the wilds of Wyoming…but when his wife’s group meets Bruce’s unattached friends, the sparks start to fly.

Four stories by Alexis Anne, Audra North, Julia Kelly, and Alexandra Haughton heat up the page in one sexy anthology.

Undressing Cara by Alexis Anne
Eli Pierce is Seattle’s most eligible bachelor. He’s sexy, rich, arrogant…and completely wrong for Cara Sinclair—not that it stopped her from using him as the inspiration for her latest best-selling novel. In fiction, she stripped away everything she didn’t like about Eli, and replaced it with the makings of a true romantic hero.

There’s only one problem: Cara has no idea she’s about to spend a week with the real Eli Pierce at her friend’s Wyoming lodge—and in a unexpected twist, Eli’s had a crush on Cara all this time. What happens when Cara learns that Eli is a lot more like her fictional hero than the man in the tabloids? Can a week in the snow turn two long-distance crushes into true love? There’s One Week in Wyoming to find out!

Off Piste by Audra North
Leah Christos is about to give up on her dream of becoming a writer because she’s afraid of taking chances. Quitting her job to write full time is simply too risky. Jasper Brandt is looking for excitement to liven up his dull life. He’s the last person that safe-loving Leah should be hooking up with. But when they get together at their friends’ Wyoming lodge, they might end up taking the greatest chance of all…

Seduction in the Snow by Julia Kelly
Lydia Reed’s had her heart stomped on one too many times, so when the gorgeous, glasses-wearing Evan Sullivan winds up at the same Wyoming lodge as her she sees the chance for the a short, hot fling with a definite end date. There’s only one problem: Evan. He might have agreed to their just-for-fun romance, but just a few days with her and he wants more. Now he must convince the headstrong writer that falling for him is worth the risk.

Love is Here to Stay by Alexandra Haughton

Romance writer Callie Emerson can’t resist a good story or a good secret, so when she finds herself more interested in unlocking a surly rancher’s secrets than in making her deadline, she knows she’s in big trouble. Win Carter is too busy resuscitating his family’s legacy to invest time in a relationship, especially one with his sister’s spoiled society friend. And though she has her head in the clouds while his feet are rooted firmly in the ground, maybe one week in Wyoming is all it will take to start writing their own happily ever after.

*Cover design for One Week in Wyoming was done by the incredibly talented Amber at Book Beautiful.

Tease: Volume 1 is Now Available!!

Tease 1_Kindle

Hey gang! I have a new (very sexy) serial that launched this week! Tease: Volume 1 is available now and Volume 2 is hot in its heels! So what is Tease? I’m so glad you asked! It is a five volume erotic romance serial. This means each installment is short and easy to read (great for those of us with kids and crazy schedules) and also extremely high up on the heat factor! Adam Callaway is certainly giving Jake a run for his money in my heart and Elizabeth is as stubborn and sassy as they come. They have fantastic banter and some very sexy times together! I am having more fun writing this series than anything I’ve written to date! Check out the details below and one-click today! (Scroll to the bottom if you want a preview of Vol. 2!)

Official Blurb:

Two weeks.

No strings.

With Adam Callaway I thought I’d found the perfect fling. He was great in bed and only in town for a few hot nights.

There was no way I could have known Adam wouldn’t be satisfied with just sex. My craving for his body made me careless. I broke my rules. I let him in. I never thought two weeks could change everything. All I wanted was an escape, what I got was so much more.

Something I couldn’t live without once I had it.
