Full Moon Releases

It's time for the Full Moon Monthly Releases. Because the full moon is so close to the end of the month right now I'll be showing a few books that will be released in September. So, get comfy with the fall weather and enjoy a great book!

 Shadows Strike by Dianne Duvall 

Shadows StrikeThe Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out...

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.

Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...

Released  Aug 25 by Kensington

Midnight Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Midnight Hunter
Hunters of the supernatural, THE EXECUTION UNDERGROUND are an elite group tasked with protecting humanity…but can dark temptation destroy good intentions?

Occult specialist and witch hunter Dr. Shane Grey is called upon to investigate a string of crimes that bear all the hallmarks of black magic. But he can't take on this daunting assignment for the Execution Underground alone. He'll need the help of Vera Sanders, a witch with a dark past—and a woman who disturbs him as much as she intrigues him.

Vera is determined to ignore the dangerous chemistry between herself and Shane so she can prove her loyalty to his cause; otherwise she risks the wrath of the Execution Underground once again. If she can't make Shane trust her, they won't stand a chance in hell of defeating the evil that's terrorizing their city. No easy task, considering old habits die hard…and Vera may be the very person responsible for luring Shane into a killer's trap.

Coming Sept 9th from Harlequn

Shadow of Flame by Caitly McFarland

25679123It's been two months since Kai Monahan's life changed forever. Retrieved from a suddenly unsafe Colorado by Rhys and taken to Eryri, the dragons' home in the South Pacific, she lives a secret existence. Rhys—for all his awe-inspiring power—is afraid to reveal to his people that he's heartsworn to a human. One he's quite possibly in love with.

Kai hasn't forgotten the terror or pain of the moment Rhys first took control of her mind and her magic, but neither has she forgotten the fire of his kiss. When she's discovered, dragon politics—not to mention spies and ex-lovers—threaten her growing feelings. Rhys has more enemies than he can guess, and someone close to him is playing right into their hands.

The war Rhys never wanted is coming. For either of them to survive, Kai must open her mind to him as never before. This time, there will be no turning back.

Coming Sept 14th from Carina Press

Taming Her Wolf by Dee Carney

Taming Her WolfFor disgraced physician Kim Sharpe, Fire Creek was supposed to be a sanctuary, a place to hide from media scrutiny and the public eye. But when a group of wolf shifters break into her clinic and demand she save the life of a packmate, her serene world unravels. And when the wolf dies despite Kim's efforts, she's dragged into a hunt she can't control, led by a man she desperately wants to understand.

All shifters live with their beasts, but Chris "Brick" Preston's is dangerously close to the surface. And it wants Kim. Sex keeps the beast sated for now, but unless Kim can help him find a more permanent solution, Brick risks becoming a feral, banished—or put down—by his pack.

With each incredibly intense encounter, Brick and Kim grow closer. But time is not on their side. When Kim is faced with betraying the pack in order to save Brick's life, the consequences may be more than they can survive.

Coming Sept 7th from Carina Press

That's all for this month.

Love and Peace!

My Sexy Saturday: My Sexy Boyfriend
It's time for another My Sexy Saturday post and this week's theme is My Sexy Boyfriend. I don't really have a lot of sexy boyfriend action in my paranormal romances. They're more mates than anything, but my latest project, Lost Relic might hold a tidbit or two.

Here's a short bit from Lost Relic, a WIP. This is a story about a young woman, Lillian, looking for adventure and she finds it deep in the Amazon Jungle. She has agreed to accompany Daniel, an archaeologist, into the rain forest in search of the lost tomb of the Golden King. Enjoy!
Excerpt from Lost Relic

She watched him intently and somewhere in the back of her mind began to wonder if his lips were as soft as they looked. “Are you suggesting what I think you’re suggesting?” Lillian asked and the steady thump of her heart began speeding up.

A cocky grin appeared as he sat the glass down. Daniel resumed trailing his finger over the rim of the glass and said, “Very much so, but more too. I want to know you, Lillian. You’re so much of the woman that I’ve been looking for. You love history, you’re smart, independent and one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever laid eyes on. I’d very much like to know you both emotionally and physically.”
Great Romances: Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile

Lillian’s eyes followed the circular motion of his finger and felt a tingle start to spread low in her belly.  “Daniel, I’m not some innocent maid who would make a nice bride. I’m not even any good as a mistress. I wouldn’t stand for the later anyway,” she warned, tearing her eyes away from the glass and meeting his stare.

“I don’t really give a damn about how innocent you are. You’re still beautiful and smart,” he said and then suddenly leaned forward. His warm hand reached out and covered her knee. Even through her skirts she could feel the heat and strength radiating from him. “Give me a chance, Lillian. Just tonight. Just this trip and then if you want to return to New York and that desk I won’t stop you.”

She stared at him. Daniel's clear blue eyes never wavered from hers as he waited for her answer. A lock of his blond hair was threatening to fall over his eye and Lillian reached out to brush it back up in place. “Okay.”

Daniel leaned in closer, sliding his hand down from her knee to the edge of the chair. Before she knew it he’d moved his free hand to grip the other edge of the chair and had pulled her forward, chair and all. Lillian grabbed his lower arms, trying to stay steady during the sudden ride. Her knees ended up bumping the front of his chair and trapped between his legs

Lillian was still recovering from the shock of the quick movement when he lifted his hand, tilted her chin up and kissed her. His soft lips crushed her, but slowly his tongue persuaded her lips to part.  She felt his thumb brush over her chin as the kiss deepened and his other hand slipped up her side and pulled her closer.

And that's your peek at Lost Relic. Hope you enjoyed! Don't forget to hop on over to the other great blogs. 

Peace and Love!
