Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day!!!

I'm so thankful for every day I can say writing is my job.  And for every one of the readers who have read and enjoyed my books.  You guys are rockstars!

May your holidays be filled with food, laughter, and BOOKS!

This is a shot of my pre-Thanksgiving project.  Had to build and organize these bookshelves for my aunt or else how would we be able to dine with her romance collection?  :)

Now I'm off to stuff a turkey so I can stuff my face later! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

My New Brand

You know exactly what you're going to get from a Kristan Higgins or a Julia Quinn or a Nalini Singh book, right?  Today I'm over at the Ruby Blog, sharing what I've learned about branding while stumbling along as a fledgling author and how those lessons influenced my decision to launch a new pen name.

Taming Intrigues LASR

Hullo, darlings!  I'm packing wildly in preparation for my walkabout, but guess what just popped into my inbox?  Why, it's a review of Taming the Lion from Long And Short Reviews!  Four Stars!  (Thank you, LASR!) I'm just tickled.

In the words of Reviewer Bluet, Taming is "an intriguing and exciting story. I enjoyed the visit to this interesting world with its various characters and will definitely look for future installments." 

Future installments coming in February!!! And May... and August... I just can't seem to stop myself.

Hawk's Revenge Cover Art Revealed!

Hawk's Revenge (Lone Pine Pride #3) comes out in February and we have art!  Behold!

Her betrayal is unforgivable. But their passion? Unforgettable.

Hawk-shifter Adrian Sokolov made the mistake of trusting the beautiful Dr. Rachel Russell once—and wound up drugged, captured, and experimented on inside Organization Labs. 

He isn’t about to make the same mistake again, but when she offers to help him escape this hell hole, he can’t say no. Her only condition? That he take her with him.

From the moment Rachel discovered her bosses’ true intent, she’s been secretly smuggling shifters out of the Labs. But now the higher-ups suspect they have a mole, and it’s time to flee—but not before she frees the golden-eyed hawk she was forced to betray.

When their escape goes wrong, Adrian wakes, confused and alone, in the safety of the Lone Pine Pride infirmary and realizes he may have left behind the one ally the shifters had within the Organization—the same breathtaking woman who invades his dreams.

Now he must face the Organization that destroyed him… before she pays for his freedom with her life. 

Warning: This book contains betrayals, escapes, rescues, plots, double-crosses, a sexy surly hero, a heroine who deserves sainthood… and a pride full of trouble.

What say you, boys and girls?  You like?

The Series Addiction

I've been rather delinquent with keeping up with the online world but I have two very good reasons for this. 

EXCUSE ONE:  I am writing!  A ton!  Book Five of Lone Pine Pride is flying off my fingers!  Huzzah!

EXCUSE TWO:  I am moving!  I'm going to be back on the road again.  Leaving the Big Apple and drifting like a leaf on the wind (FIREFLY!!!!!!!!!!!!) until I settle in my next semi-permanent locale.  I'm very excited by this turn of events, but it also means I have to do slightly necessary things like pack. 

But TODAY, I am not just packing.  I am also discussing my addiction to romance novels in series over at the Ruby Blog.  Are you a series or a stand alone sort?  What sort of series do you prefer?  Come tell me!
