Full Moon Releases (Sept 2017)






It's been too long. Summer burn out and family obligations have pulled me away from the Full Moon New Releases for too long. So, we're back with some great new reads!



Highland Dragon Warrior by Isabel Cooper


Highland Dragon WarriorLegend claims
When Scotland fell to English rule
The Highland dragons took a vow:
Freedom at any price.

The war may be over, but so long as English magic controls the Highlands, not even a dragon laird can keep his clan safe. What Cathal MacAlasdair needs is a warrior fierce enough to risk everything, yet gifted enough to outwit an enemy more monster than man.
What he needs is Sophia.
Alchemist Sophia Metzger traveled to Loch Arach in search of knowledge. She never dreamed she'd learn to do battle, ride through the stars on the back of a dragon, or catch the eye of a Highland laird. But as her quest turns to sizzling chemistry and inescapable danger, she'll soon discover the thrill of being caught in a dragon's claws...



Released Sept 5th by Sourcebooks




Dark Legacy (Dark Series #31) by Christine Feehan

Dark Legacy (Dark Series #31)
In a thrilling Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan, a woman fights to free herself from the grip of the vampire trying to possess her...
 
In a beautiful compound hidden away from the world, Emeline Sanchez tries to blunt the pain that has wracked her body ever since her terrifying ordeal in the labyrinth beneath the city—when she was forced to exchange blood with an evil master vampire.

Now, it’s his voice that haunts her...that calls to her in the dark...that never lets her rest. And while the children that she helped to free from his clutches struggle to heal, watched over by their Carpathian protectors, Emeline knows one thing: She must sacrifice herself to keep them all from harm...

For her beauty is irresistible to the vampires, her psychic ability like a drug. Whipped into a frenzy, they’ll never stop coming for her. And only the taste of one Carpathian warrior—the rush of his blood—can save her...

Released by Penguin Publishing Group on Sept 5th.


Grave Danger by S.K. Gregory

Grave DangerSure, she'd summoned a zombie as a teenager, but that was an accident. Only now, as an adult, does the power she's been denying for years finally come in handy, when a fellow citizen of the small town of Stone Marsh asks her to use a spell to bring her straying husband back. Aurelia agrees – and sets a series of uncanny events in motion, a chain reaction that leads to self-discovery, danger, and truly supernatural romance..

With the help of local sheriff Brody Clarke (the man who's loved her since high school, who would do anything to protect her), and an experienced witch and psychic named Sabine Blyth, Aurelia must learn to master her new abilities as a necromancer, solve the mystery of a string of bizarre deaths that are plaguing her beloved town, and ultimately battle a Shadow Mage – a wizard cursed to live between worlds – who's determined to destroy them all.

Aurelia hasn't a clue how to use her power, and a world of trouble and true love is heading her way. Can she cast a spell that will give her and her sheriff the happy ending she's always wanted?

Coming Sept 15th from Winlock Press


Night's Caress by Mary Hughes


Night's CaressWhen artist Brie Lark left her vampire ex and her straitjacket of a hometown to breathe free in New York City, she promised herself two things: she’d never go back to Meiers Corner, and no more vampires. The last thing she expected—or wanted—was to be sent back home on an assignment. But her boss at the FBI needs her undercover on a murder case, working with a black-haired, black-eyed giant god of a man who’s her idea of perfection, except for one thing—he’s a vampire.

FBI Special Agent Seb Rikare is an ancient vampire hardened by loss. He’s cut all emotions to protect himself and leads a deliberately steady, almost sterile life. The brash young woman forced to pose as his lover irritates him, with her jangling bracelets and colorful hair. But as much as she irritates him, he finds himself drawn to her lively spirit and he’s tempted to make fantasy a reality.


Coming Sept 25th from Entangled Publishing, LLC

Genre Confusion

Romance, erotica and erotic romance. Touchy subject, but let's be clear: One is not the other and each have their places and I don't feel anyone should be judged for reading any of it. Read whatever you want! It's a free country and no one should judge you on your reading habits.

Anyways, onward...

Over the last few years I've had people tell me all romance is just porn. For those folks, romance is a story about emotions and building a relationship between character. If the story focuses on the relationship more than the sex, it's romance, graphic scenes or not. I've had people say the romance of today is just fluffy erotica or, yep, porn. Again, romance is about emotions and relationships. Deal with it. You don't have to read it if you don't want to, but at least understand it before trying to talk about it. 

Now, on to erotica. Erotica is a story that is meant to arouse the reader. It puts them in a sexy fantasy style of story. There is nothing wrong with reading erotica, but if it isn't your cup of tea it's just not for you. I have found some erotica stories that were really well written. They took the reader into the fantasy and euphoric bless was achieved. With that said, at least learn the difference between the genres.

Finally, erotic romance. This is an odd ball in my post. Erotic romance is defined differently by different readers, authors, publishers and whoever else may feel like defining it. Some people will say it's just really steamy romance. That could work for a nice definition. So could the definition that it's a story that focuses on emotions, the relationship and graphic sex helps that relationship move along. I've read books that do this. Some of them good some of them not so much. Personally, it depends on the author's ability and style. 

These are blurry times we live in. A genre could prove to sell really well and you have authors that rush to take advantage of that genre. This leads to some great books and some crappy books. However, no matter how popular a genre becomes that does not, REPEAT, does not change the genre. Learn the differences before jumping into a conversation, because a romance author may not enjoy hearing romance novels being called erotica. And an erotica author may not enjoy the ranting a raving of a reviewer who grabbed up their book expecting a Happily Ever After.

Peace and love!

Just Beyond Daybreak Teaser



As promised, here is a tease from my up coming novella, Just Beyond Daybreak. The story starts with Meredith, the leading lady, searching through Magic Town.





Magic Town was a dingy maze of alleyways tucked away in a section of Atlanta that never made it to the travel guides. It was crawling with some of the lowest members of society and if a person had to be honest it also had quite a few members of high society slinking around from time to time. It was a place that Meredith Blackburn despised venturing into. After four nights of searching questionable bars and occult shops, the young witch found herself standing in front of a small Chinese shop called Heavenly Herbs. Flexing her fingers, she could feel the flow of magic in her veins cycling painfully slow and it only reminded her how important it was for her to find the man she was looking for.
Meredith despised the man just as much as the area she knew she would find him in. Malcolm Blackwood was one of those high-society brats who had slunk down to Magic Town after displeasing his family. At least Meredith liked to think that he slunk, but entered with a cocky stride would fit his character more. Malcolm had been the second-son playboy that every family dreaded, but for some reason he held a type of charm that made everyone want to be near him. For all her detest of the man, Meredith was no different. Just like every other woman, she’d been drawn to him too.
But the Blackburns and the Blackwoods had been at each other’s throats for more than a millennium. It was family bickering left over from their roots in the old country, and that left little room for feelings besides distrust. So Meredith ignored the attraction and focused on the man’s arrogant attitude.
Nonetheless, he was one of the best magical trackers on the East Coast, and that was what she needed.


That's your tease! Hope it caught your interest. Stop back by tomorrow for the full cover reveal and to find out the winner of the giveaway!

MidWeek Tease

MidWeekTease
So, I've been really really busy with everything and things have gotten behind, but never fear! Here's a MidWeek Tease to wet your tongue. Enjoy!

Just Beyond Daybreak snippet


Something was tickling her nose. Brushing it aside, Meredith nuzzled deeper into the comfortable pillow. She still felt the heavy tug of sleep, but another tickle traced over her ear. Meredith groaned and tried to swat it away, but was instead greeted with a man’s deep chuckle. “Come on. It’s time to get to business.”

The sound of his voice made her eyes shoot open. Meredith didn’t sit up at first. She just stared at her surroundings. The bold red comforter with black vines was definitely hers and so was the lamp on the night stand. “Malcolm, what are you doing in my bedroom?” she asked, finally rolling over to look at the man leaning over her.

He was close. So close that she could make out the golden flakes that dotted his blue eyes. Strands of blond hair brushed downwards, trying to hide the merriment that danced around those golden flakes, and a grin graced his full lips. “I’m trying to wake you up, Sleeping Beauty,” he answered, sitting back a little further away from her. “You’ve been asleep the better part of the morning.”


That's it for right now, but if all goes according to plan, I'll have some great news to share soon! Don't forget to hop to the other blogs for more MidWeek Teases.
