Full Moon Releases (Oct. 2016)

A day or two late, but we're still here with some great October reads for everyone! 

Wild by Eve Langlais, Kate Douglas & A.C. Arthur

WildIn Catch a Tiger by the Tail by Eve Langlais, Broderick has a job to do—audit the books of a gentleman’s club. Sounds simple, except his company wants him to find dirt linking to the mob, his secret mob employer wants someone to pin the blame on, and the bar manager at the heart of the controversy doesn’t want him—even though she’s his mate.

In Wild Passions by Kate Douglas, six women—friends closer than sisters—head off to an exclusive mountain resort for a week-long bachelorette getaway, where most of the women just wants to know if there are any good men left in the world. There are, and they’re the men of Feral Passions, a unique resort located on a private wolf preserve, owned and run by a pack of sexy werewolves who use it as their own personal hunting ground for mates.

In Her Perfect Mates by A.C. Arthur, Malec Zenta was part of a loving lycan family until his twin brother’s suicide took a piece of his soul. Channing Verdi never knew his parents, but that was fine because at the age of sixteen on the night of the full moon, he realized his purpose. The only pleasure these two betas have managed to find in their life was in the bed with the women they shared. Now, a human woman has entered their lives...a woman who sets their primal instincts on fire, a woman they can’t help but stake their claim on...and give her the ultimate pleasure of being with two shifters at once.

Released  Oct 10th by St. Martin's Press

Viking Warrior Rebel by Asa Maria Bradley

Viking Warrior RebelShe can't let him discover...
Immortal Vikings are among us

Astrid Irisdotter is a Valkyrie-a fierce warrior fighting to protect humanity from the evil god Loki and his brutal minions. She's on an urgent mission for her queen when everything goes hideously sideways. Undercover agent Luke Holden arrives on the scene just in time to save her life-and put his own on the line.

Luke may have saved her, but that doesn't mean Astrid can trust him. Tempers flare as they hide secret upon secret from each other, but Astrid's inner warrior knows what it wants...and it will not take "no" for an answer.

Released Oct 4th by Sourcebooks

Through the Veil by Colleen Halverson

Through The VeilElizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she's studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war.

As Commander of Trinity's elite warriors, Finn O'Connell isn't used to having his authority challenged. He doesn't know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth's abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he'll risk everything to help her.

At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth thousands of years in the making. Refusing to be a pawn in their game, Elizabeth has to fight her way back to the man she loves, but to do so, she must wage her own war against the magic that binds her.

Coming Oct. 22nd from Entangled Publishing, LLC.

That's it for this month. Happy Halloween everyone!

Peace and Love!

NaNoWriMo Prep (2016)

Image result for NANoWriMo graphics 2016Every year I set a goal to participate in NaNoWriMo. Whether it's one of the camps or the November event, I push myself to set writing goals and write alongside other authors. The first year I did NaNoWriMo I wrote over 40k words for my first published piece, Witch Hunt. The following years saw large chunks of Fox Hunt and Fire Hunt completed. Last year I completed my 30k goal with Lost Relic and this past summer it was published.

To me that means that when I push myself to complete a writing goal I'm more likely to finish it and get it out to readers. That's some awesome motivation to join in and get to writing.

This past summer and spring I wasn't unable to join Camp NaNoWriMo because of an illness in the family. So next month is my last chance to take part this year and I'm determined to do it. I've tucked away a story idea just for this year. It stayed untouched for months waiting for it's chance and when I pulled it out last week I was happy to find it just as fresh in my mind as the moment I scribbled it down on a receipt.

The Prep

Some years I fly by the seat of my pants and wait until it all starts to get the story underway. Not this year. I can't set a lower word count goal in November like I can during the camps. So 50k is the goal and that's a lofty challenge. At least for me.

Character sheets, plot and other bits of the story need a little developing. This has already started. Scenes have already started coming to mind and I'm trying my best to keep these all contained to a notebook. (Love my computer and phone, but I also love pen and paper) 

Another part of the prep work is advancing my current WIP to a point where I can pick it back up after November. Because of family illness this piece hasn't gotten the attention it normally world so I've got a good bit of catch up to do.

I'm also going to need to prep some frozen meals for my family. They've gotta eat too! Don't get me wrong. I'll still cook for the hubby and pumpkin, but I know there will be evenings where pulling away from the story just won't happen. On those nights I plan on having something for them and the hubby is awesome enough to be okay with that.

And that's the prep at this point. Development, advancing WIP and looking for at home frozen meal recipes. If you happen to know a good recipe that freezes well let me know in the comments!

Peace and Love!

My Sexy Soul Mate

http://mysexysaturday.blogspot.comThis week's My Sexy Saturday theme is My Sexy Soul Mate and I couldn't think of a better couple than Rei and Aidan from Witch Hunt. Enjoy and make sure to visit the other blogs!

Witch Hunt excerpt:

Aidan watched her try to tug her arm away from him. She was putting all of her strength into it, but
he was determined to hold her until she understood. Looking down into her deep eyes, Aidan wondered if she might understand what he was about to tell her, after all. Sucking in a long breath, he asked, “You know about mates?”

Rei let out a groan of frustration as she tugged a last time at her arm. “I know what my grandfather told me. Lifelong commitment. That’s about it.”

“Rei, Tessa isn’t my mate. She wants to be, but never can be. I can have only one mate. Only one woman can ever carry my child,” he explained. As the last few words let his mouth, he felt Rei’s arm go a little lax in his grip. “Tessa and I are not compatible. We never have been, but she will not accept that. Her true mate died years ago, without giving her a cub. The pack feels for her, but she wants a cub so badly she keeps looking.” Aidan knew the story sounded odd to people outside of pack and hoped that Rei could hear the truth of his words.

He could see her eyes narrow a little as she thought about what he was saying. Fury still danced across her fierce eyes, but Aidan knew reason would start to form at some point. Finally, running her tongue over her teeth, Rei asked, “And just how does someone know they’ve found their mate?”

“A wolf knows his mate by smell, by heat, and by passion. You are my mate, Rei, and I can’t let you leave,” Aidan explained. Searching her face, he saw shock and confusion. All the fury was still there, but it had been pushed back. Aidan had a feeling it was only waiting in reserve for later.

Rei went very still beside him. He knew she had little knowledge about wolves, let alone their mated couples, and understood the confusion she was struggling against. After what seemed like several long minutes like this, Rei’s rolled her eyes, and she let out a low, defeated sigh. “Aidan, I’m not a wolf. I can’t be your mate,” she said, letting her arm go completely limp.

“Rei, you are my mate. I cannot explain why, but I know it is possible. Other wolves have found their mates in witches like you,” Aidan said softly, loosening his grip on Rei’s arm. He tilted his head to the couch and walked her over to sit down. Once Rei was settled down on the couch, thinking over what being a mate entailed, Aidan said, “You don’t have to think about it now. Once the danger has passed, we can talk about it.” To himself, he thought, I’ll tell her about the link later.

 That's it for this week. Peace and love dear readers.

Peace and Love!

Full Moon New Releases (Sept 2016)

Autumn is fast approaching. Here in South Carolina we're getting above average temperatures. Think high 90's when we should be getting low 80's. So if you've getting cool breezes pull out the fluffy socks and enjoy a new paranormal romance for me!

Frost Line by Linda Howard and Linda Jones

Frost LineLenna is Strength, a manifestation of the Tarot card, and powerful beyond reckoning. But when she’s pulled into the human realm and tasked with protecting a young boy, everything is thrown into chaos. Lenna’s not supposed to be here, interacting with mortals. She’s definitely not supposed to be drawn to the sexy mercenary sent to retrieve her by any means necessary . . .

As a Hunter for magical beings, Caine’s duty is simple: return this compelling, impossibly attractive woman and secure the long lost Tarot deck that made travel between worlds possible. Instead he’s drawn into Lenna’s dangerous rescue mission and blindsided by his growing feelings. But there is more than one enemy to contend with. And as the clock runs out, failure means not just the loss of an innocent life and the woman Caine has come to love, but the destruction of Lenna’s entire world.

Released on August 30th by HarperCollins Publishers.

Deja Who by MaryJanice Davidson

Deja WhoLeah Nazir is an Insighter. Reincarnation is her business. But while her clients’ pasts are a mess, Leah’s is nothing short of tragedy. She’s been murdered. A lot. If left to that bitch, destiny, it’ll happen again. Leah wants to know who’s been following her through time, and who’s been stalking her in the present...

P.I. Archer Drake has been hired by Leah’s mother to keep an eye on her. But the more time he spends watching, the more he finds himself infatuated. Before long, he even finds himself agreeing to help find the person who wants her dead. Over and over again.

Now going full-on “rewind,” Leah hopes it can stave off the inevitable. After all, she’s grown fond of this life—and even fonder of nerdy Archer. But changing her pattern means finding out who her killer is today. And as Leah fears, that could be anyone she has come to know and trust. Anyone.

Preparing for the Season

Along with all my writing projects Autumn brings a bit extra excitement to the household. I love fall and almost everything that comes with it. Thankfully, I can over look the house maintenance that comes with preparing for the winter months. (Not my favorite of chores) Instead I can gloss over all that and get down to really enjoying everything.

I've already started getting things ready for Halloween. My daughter is pretty strong willed about her costume and it's always 50/50 if I'm going to have to make it or if I can buy it. This year she's found Monster High and zeroed in on the Chloe character. While I love that I can purchase this costume instead of trying to piece it together I was also told I'll get to be Cleopatra. Yay! I always wanted to try on royalty. While I get dodge stitching her costume together mine doesn't meet the budget. So I've already started looking around to piece together my costume.

With the costumes planned out I get to turn to one of my favorite pursuits. Movies! I always pick out movies for movie marathons with the family (or just on the random wine nights with friends). This year my daughter and I are negotiating a Scooby-Doo marathon and I'm working on a Witchy marathon list.

Oktoberfest and Pagan Pride day are also coming up. Oktoberfest is important not just for the fun of it, but because it's where my husband and I really hung out for the first time. It's also where we reconnected a few years later. Pagan Pride Day is special this year. It's the first year my daughter will be attending. She's been to the random gathering but never to something this big. I'm excited.

And of course I still have my writing to look forward to. My muse has left me a bit dry the last few months but she's starting to come back around. Sweeter Dreams seems to be trying to roll along and I've got a few short stories that need attention.

Anyway, time to start rounding up the new paranormal romance releases for the Full Moon Releases.

Love and Peace all!

A Sexy Dilemma


It's a My Sexy Saturday post and it's all for you! This week's theme is A Sexy Dilemma and I've pulled a dilemma from my latest novel, Lost Relic. As a choose your own adventure, this story allows the reader to make choices for our heroin, Lillian. So here's a sexy dilemma for my readers. Which man do you choose?

Lost Relic snippet:
Daniel flashed a sad smile and said, “You’re a beautiful and smart woman. Do you trust Alex not to run off leaving a mess in your hands or do you want to come with me and we’ll make sure this discovery is recorded the right way?”

Lillian could only stare at him. He was asking her to leave Alex, drop him from the expedition and her life. It was an idea so far from left field that it had blindsided her, but somehow she was considering it.

“Well, Lil, what do you think?” Alex asked from behind her. “Do you go off with Daniel or do you want to stay with me?”

“Alex?” Lillian asked, pulling away from Daniel’s hand and turning to keep both men in sight.

Alex wasn’t even really looking at her. He was staring daggers at Daniel and Lillian could see the tense line of his jaw as he ground his teeth together. “He makes a good point, Lillian, and you are smart enough to figure this out. I am interested in the disk, but I’m not planning on running off after I get it.”

“Then what are you going to do with it?” Lillian asked, turning more fully to face him.

Finally looking at her, Alex’s eyes softened. “It’ll be my profit from this expedition. I don’t want a cut of anything else. Just that disk. So, now you know what I’m after. Do you trust me or do you not?”

That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed and remember to hop on over to the other blogs for more great reads!

You can find your copy of Lost Relic on Amazon for just $2.99 or Free on KindleUnlimited.

My Sexy Reunion


 It's a My Sexy Saturday post! This weeks theme is My Sexy Reunion. Knowing that Julia and Edmond from Fire Hunt have a long history together I've pull a bit from their story to share with everyone.

 Fire Hunt snippet:

Instead of focusing the conversation on his failed escape, he halfheartedly pointed at a framed picture on the dresser. “So how do I get there?”

He knew without looking that Julia was aware of every detail in the photo. It highlighted an old tire swing rocking over a large creek. For him, and maybe still for her, it was home. “I want to go back there, when the Saving Grace Act was just a right wing movement. Back before hell broke loose. When we were just kids playing out in the woods.”

Julie sighed. “We can’t go back in time. All we can do is save the future.” She let her arms drop and strolled over to the bed. With a huff, she sat down and finally looked over at the picture. “I didn’t want to leave.”

“But you did leave, Jul. I had you just one night and then you were gone. Not a word, not even a clue, about your idiotic plans. I broke down and demanded your dad tell me.” It had taken everything he had to march up to his coven leader and demand to know where Julia had gone. The condescending answer he had gotten had sent Edmund off on his own.

She let out a small chuckle from her perch on the edge of the bed. “That couldn’t have been fun. He was mad as hell when I told him.”

Her father had been more than angry, but at the same time he was over the moon happy with pride for his daughter. “No. He was proud. You were going to fight a different battle for all of us. His daughter was going to start a change for the better, and I was going to leave you alone,” Edmund said.

A whisper of a smile graced her lips as she gave her head a little shake. “You never could have walked this path, Eddie. It’s not your way.”

That's it for this week! Remember to hop on over to the other great blogs on the list below.

Peace and Love!
