The Early Word on Tiger...

Just saw my first review for Tangling With the Tiger and it's a good one!  Squee!!! 

You can check out the entire review at Romance Reviews by Ruckie, but here's a little taste: "I have really been waiting on the stories for the two characters featured in this book, and the fact that their stories were intertwined just made it all the more amazing."

Woot!  Thank you, Ruckie!

Dominec and Grace... the romance... the ferocity... aahhhhhh.  Hoping you guys all love this book as much as I loved writing it!   

Coming August 18th!  

Pre-order Available at Amazon & B&N.

Some Like It Super

If you haven't already checked out my superhero romance series, now is your chance to get a great deal (and I do love a deal!) on three of the novellas in the series. (If you liked the Karmic Consultants series or you love super hero stories half as much as I do, these novellas are for you.)

The super romances launched (or perhaps I should say "took flight") with Superlovin' (which I can't include for contract reasons) but now you can get Super Bad, Super Hot, and Super Trouble all in one box set!

Three superhero romance novellas in the world of Superlovin' by award-winning paranormal romance author Vivi Andrews...
SUPER BAD – Brainwashed by a super villain, Mirage only wants to get control of her psychic powers and get her sense of self back—but when the only man who can help her is the all-too-appealing hero Captain Justice, does she dare let another man into her head—and her heart—again?

SUPER HOT – Dr. Eric Eisenmann always wanted to be a superhero—until an experiment left him with uncontrollable fire-starting powers triggered by any strong emotion. Now his only hope for getting his new powers under control is Tandy Nightwing—the one non-super member of a hero dynasty and the one woman who fires up his dangerous emotions more than any other.

SUPER TROUBLE – Kim Carruthers has become famous for being the damsel in distress—but when a super villain’s experiment leaves her with telekinetic powers, it’s her turn to kick some villain ass for a change. Unfortunately the one man standing in her way is the super all others fear—Frost Nightwing. Super Enforcer. And the first man she ever loved… 

Happy reading!

Unbearable Desire - The Post Release Teaser

If you missed the tweet chat, never fear!  I still have a teaser, just for you.

#TeaserTuesday - Sometimes you've just gotta leap into the jaws of love and damn the consequences...

“Nothing has to happen tonight,” he murmured, clearly picking up on her sudden misgivings. “Or ever, if you don’t want it to. Maybe we should just be friends for a while—”
She could see that future. The sensible future. They would go back to their usual awkwardness with one another. Trying to ignore the attraction between them even as they tried to ignore their stupid, complicated past. Until all she could feel when she looked at him was the effort of trying not to feel everything he made her feel.
In some ways it would be so much easier. So much safer.
She didn’t want safe. She didn’t want another decade of pushing down emotions she didn’t want to feel.
She wanted this. She wanted now. She wanted risk and folly. She may not be a fighter, but she was brave. She was strong. And she wasn’t going to make the head choice at the expense of her heart anymore. Even if her heart was wrong and foolish and setting itself up for a vicious break. No. She wasn’t holding back anymore. She wanted to feel, even if it hurt.

The Validation Addiction

Today I'm over at the Ruby Blog, chatting about my non-writing life, overachiever complexes, and the need for validation versus the satisfaction of following a calling.  Come say howdy! :)

Unbearable Desire Release Day!!!

Happy Unbearable Desire Release Day!  The next shifter tale is out in the world! 

And not only is it release day, it's also #TeaserTuesday!  So how's about one more peek inside? 

Moira and Hugo have a complicated history... but there's no time like the present to work through decade-old emotion...


“I’m sorry,” he said. “Sorry that I gave you the wrong impression. Back in Canada.”

Her head snapped up then, brown eyes piercing. “Now? You want to discuss this now?”

He shrugged. “You just seem really irritated with me lately. I thought if we cleared the air—”

“The air is plenty clear. Crystal. Blue skies.” Her gaze landed back on his hand and he half expected the next swipe of antiseptic to be rough, but she was as gentle as ever.

“I’ve always felt bad that you stayed for me and I couldn’t—”

Her head snapped up again, hard enough to give her whiplash. “Excuse me? Stayed for you? Don’t be such an egotistical ass, Hugo. I love this pride. I stayed in spite of you.”

He blinked, taken aback by her vehemence. “I’m still sorry,” he said. “For leading you on before you got here. For giving you a false impression of what we had—”

“Was it false?”

“Ah…” He’d never seen her like this. Her words sharp and aggressive. Moira was gentle and nurturing. She healed people, but now her words were sharp enough to cut.

“Was it really false, Hugo? Was everything that happened in Canada really in my head or did you just get home and chicken out?”

“I don’t know what you—”

“Unrequited love is easy. There are never any flaws in unrequited love. You never have to work through an argument or make a hard call about putting another person above all others when you’re only worshipping from afar.”

“I hardly think—”

She didn’t even let him begin. “This grand passion of yours is childish.” She slapped a bandage over his cut, securing it with surgical tape, deft and gentle even as she railed at him. “Love, real love, isn’t always a fairy tale. It isn’t just adoration. It’s making the choice to put one person above all others—not just believing that they were put on earth for you to worship from afar.”


Their history? Complicated. Their chemistry? Incendiary.

Lone Pine Pride, Book 4

Ten years ago, Moira shared one hot night with the bear-shifter of her dreams, but when she took him up on his offer to join him at the Lone Pine Pride, reality landed with a thud. She quickly realized that he was only looking for a momentary distraction, not a happily ever after.

She’s been trying to get over him ever since, but no other shifter has measured up to the big bad bear.

When Hugo met Moira in a Yukon bar, he poured out his unrequited love for his alpha’s mate as he pounded down drinks. While Hugo remembers telling Moira he was emotionally unavailable, apparently she only heard his need for sexual healing.

He’s always felt guilty for unintentionally leading her on. But now that the woman he thought he wanted is finally available, he’s beginning to wonder if the one he really needs is the woman with whom he shared one incendiary night—then let slip through his fingers.

Warning: This book contains a stubborn old bear, mixed messages, mixed-up emotions, and lots of mixed drinks. Before reading, remember that the best cure for a hangover is NOT “hair of the bear”.

Around the Blog-o-sphere

Good morning, darlings!  Today I have two (count them TWO!) special blog appearances as I count down the hours until UNBEARABLE DESIRE launches into the world.  Come visit me and you may find yourself taking home a free ebook!

Appearance the First: Beam Me Up Monday with Darynda Jones

Today I'm delighted to be visiting the unspeakably awesome and almost insultingly talented Darynda Jones at her blog.  I'm chatting about my leap-into-it approach to life and love and how it translated into me writing the second-chance-romance novella that became Unbearable Desire.

Check it out. (This one seems to be delayed this morning, but will hopefully be up later!)

Appearance the Second: Fantastic Fables Blog Event at Dark Faerie Tales Blog

I'm also thrilled to be a part of the Fantastic Fables Blog Event!  What would happen if my heroine Moira was dropped into a classic fairy tale?  Would her need to meddle keep those Disney princesses out of trouble?
