It’s been hard to wait to share this gorgeous cover for mine & Sarah’s upcoming release, Hunted, but here it is. I’m so excited for you to start this series November 17!
On the hundredth anniversary of being turned into a vampire, Edith Dorset joins her adopted daughters and their friends at the Heartsong Clan’s annual Live Action Role Play recruitment event where she meets an eager young man named Dan Paxton. His older brother and Hunter, Darren, thinks Dan’s merely chaperoning a trip to a nerd convention, but has no idea he’s partnered with vampires for the weekend.
When Darren discovers Dan missing, he follows the only lead he has to the Heartsong Clan’s residence on Tombstone Row. Edith and Darren’s first meeting is uneasy because he lies his way into the Clan’s house, claiming to be there to play on the side of humans. He’s determined to keep his Hunter instincts in check, rescue his brother, and get it out of there.
An impromptu late-night encounter leads Darren and Edith to come clean with each other about who and what they are. Edith longs to keep Darren and his brother close, although it goes against Clan rules, and Darren is finding it harder than he thought to snuff out Edith and her family. Darren and Edith grow closer as they seek out the truth from her Sire, Mr. Heartsong.
While Darren uses all his Hunter skills to free his brother and be the hero, Mr. Heartsong banishes Edith from the Clan for her behavior towards Darren. No longer having Clan protection, Edith is faced with a terrible choice. Just as Darren returns with Hunter reinforcements, Heartsong and his Clan have vanished, along with Edith and her family. All that remains is a note from Edith, begging Darren to find them. And so, the hunt begins.
Me trying to do all the FATED MATES release day tasks and not stress:
I NEED MORE CAFFEINE! TWO CAFFEINE DRINKS BEFORE 9 AM? BRING ME MORE! I WON’T SLEEP FOR A WEEK.
*passes out on keyboard*
Today’s the day, folks. FATED MATES anthology releases. All our hard work is finally out in the wild. Everyone involved in the set is so proud of everything we’ve accomplished. We’ve brought you 22 amazing paranormal romance and reverse harem stories. Some are stand alone, but others are the start of great new series. With over 3,000 pages to choose from, you’re bound to find new authors and stories to love.
Guess what? I have a new release. OPERATION BOYFRIEND is up for pre-order. Official release is April 9th. It’s FREE on Kindle Unlimited or only 99 cents for a limited time.
College is easy compared to dating…
It’s safe to say my love life stinks. As if getting dumped for another guy by my long-term boyfriend isn’t enough, my hopes at finding a boyfriend get crushed with a string of disastrous dates.
But then I meet the strange bus boy who has been staring at me for the last three months. He’s awkward, goofy, and has no fashion sense. Corin is the exact opposite of what I should want in a boyfriend, but I feel drawn to him in a way I can’t explain.
There’s also Daniel. Smart, charming, successful, and well-dressed. He’s the perfect man, the kind of guy I should want. Even my family is convinced we’re meant to be together.
Somehow, I went from the girl with a catastrophic love life to a woman with one too many options.
Now I need to decide whether to follow my head…or my heart.

I have four books under contract. Three have a confirmed 2019 release. One that I’m particularly excited about is a multi-author boxed set–FATED MATES. It’s available for pre-order now with a release date of June 4, 2019.
This is a paranormal romance boxed set, which is a new genre for me but I’m co-authoring a novel with my good friend Sarah Biglow. Our book, CAPTIVITY, tells the story of Aiden and Lorelei, two shifters both trying to escape literal and figurative captivity while they search for love in a world that only values their inherent magical abilities.
This boxed set is aiming to hit the USA Today Bestseller list, which is a LOT of work. Every author in the set has been hard at work getting ready for this launch. In order to have a chance at hitting the list, we need certain sales goals on particular e-book retailers, including Nook and Apple Books.
Please consider helping us get closer to our goal by pre-ordering a copy on both Apple and Nook. It’s only $0.99. But, don’t worry. We’re not going to ask you to pre-order six months out and then just wait.
With your pre-order, you get fun bonus material like 12 full-length e-books from set authors, short story anthologies, and a digital coloring book. You can also enter for a chance to win an iPad. Head over to www.fatedmates.com to enter the giveaway and claim your bonus goodies. FATED MATES is available for pre-order on Apple and Nook. Amazon pre-order starts in March.
I’ve tried to set up a mailing list for awhile. WordPress and Mailchimp code didn’t want to play nice together. Every embed option I tried did not work. Finally, after much “why isn’t this working?!?”, I set it so the link takes you to a different page to sign up. No more messing with wonky code. If you sign up, there’s a free eBook in your future.
It’s been awhile. I needed to take a break from blogging and reviewing (thanks summer), but I’m back with a short review for an amazon short reads.
LOVE BITES, book 1 in an intended short reads series, is a fun, fast paced, light paranormal romance. It’s appropriate for teens +. I liked that it wasn’t just the same old same old tired vampire tropes. There were new ideas like some (but not all) vampires were able to have children and go out into the sunlight. That could lead to some really interesting twists in later stories in the series.
For the plot itself, Brooke is desperate to find her sister Clara. They don’t have the best relationship, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love and worry about her. When she finds a mysterious letter addressed to Clara from the house of Sanguin with the word “vampire” on it, she decides to take her sister’s place at the scheduled appointment. George’s job is to turn humans into vampires. He turns Brooke thinking she’s Clara…and gets in trouble for doing it. The also fall into (slightly) insta-love. It’s a romance trope so I can deal with that. Especially since there’s some insecurities, doubts, and secrets that jump up later. Brooke settles into her life at House of Sanguin but George must deal with the consequences of accidentally turning someone into a vampire. Clara’s return complicates matters even further.
I liked that sisterly love is just as important as romantic love in LOVE BITES. Even if Brooke and Clara have had their differences in the past, they still love and care for each other. I’m interested to see what else is in store for the House of Sanguin in the rest of the short reads series.
Amazon and Barnes and Noble are hitting me where it hurts this holiday season — with tons of sales on ebooks! In the last two days, I’ve spent more than I usually spend in 6 months to a year on ebooks. Some of my purchases include:
The Luxe Collection is one of my favorite book series. I own them all in hardback but it’s definitely worth having a set in ebook as well! It’s technically classified as YA but is like a historical soap opera set in 1899 New York. There’s forbidden love, jealousy, back stabbing BFFs, social climbing maids, and a socialite faking her own death. The covers are absolutely gorgeous as well. The Luxe series cemented Anna Godbersen’s place in my insta-buy category. It’s currently on sale for $9.99.
The Dark Swan series by Richelle Mead is one I decided to take a chance on. I enjoy Mead’s Vampire Academy series. It’s fun and fresh with great narrative voice. Dark Swan seems to be an adult version instead of YA urban fantasy. The series has been on my radar for awhile since I like Mead as an author. The $8.99 price tag was too good to pass up.
Sweet Valley High books 1-12. If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, chances are you have fond memories of Sweet Valley High. I remember cutting my teeth on Sweet Valley Twins before moving up to Sweet Valley High. Those Wakefield twins lived a crazy, soap opera drama-rama life, but it was so addicting. I’m anxious to see if the books hold up to the test of time or if they will come across as not as cool as I remember them being. Currently, the first 12 books are on sale for $7.99
My Lady Viper. This was a definitely impulse buy for me. It showed up on my daily BookBub newsletter, I saw it was about one of my absolute favorite time periods for historical fiction — Tudor England — and clicked the link. The $2 definitely helped as well. The sample hooked me instantly…So much so that I also bought the 2nd book in the series Prisoner Of The Queen which is also currently on sale for $2.
I posted the Amazon links but Barnes & Noble started the sale and Amazon price matched. I’m going to be busy reading for a long, long time! *cue happy dance*
