Thank you all for your patience, I know the
newsletter is seldom monthly, but I do appreciate your interest more than I can
say. One of my goals next year is to get a newsletter out each month, even if
it's a shorter one. I'm also toying with the idea of creating a PDF newsletter
that will be delivered as an attachment. Who would prefer that? Any
comments/suggestions for things you'd like to see are always welcome, just drop
me a note here: firstname.lastname@example.org
So, news and things. Let's start with the
various Giveaways and Hops I'm in the middle of at the moment. The first one is
tied to my Holiday Duet with Brigit Aine. We wrote the two stories in Silver
Bells and the book was released only a week before Christmas last year, so there
was little chance to share it with you. This year, we're giving away the lovely
hand-crafted silver bell earrings that are a part of the story. The contest will
close on December 13th, the winner will be announced on December 14th, and the
earrings will be sent on the 15th. ALL the details, and a photo of the earrings
you can win, are here. All it takes to win is a comment, so please drop in
when you have a chance and check out this lovely book!
Also, for anyone who might have missed this
last year, Dark Angel is back as a FREE Read via Coffeetime Romance, and
you can download it here.
I also did a wonderful interview with
Coffeetime recently. It was a ton of fun and the interviewer asked some terrific
questions. Plus there are pictures! You can access our chat here.
I've been involved in several Holiday blog
hops, too - and the first two are in progress now. The first one ends in a
couple of days, and it's the Naughty Giveaway Hop: Details here. There are the two prizes up for
grabs, but the hop ends tomorrow!
I've also done a very cool interview with
author Lynn LaFleur for her newsletter, and it's beautiful! If you'd like to
check it out, along with an excerpt from the re-released Heart of Stone novella,
you can find it here.
So, since we're chatting releases, let's
talk about the two latest ones, and two that are coming soon.

Randall Stone is the stuff of heroes, a mercenary given
a discharge from the army he has served with his life. But the government is
still interested in using the skills they've taught Major Rand Stone, and he
continues to work with his hand-picked team. Into his shadowy world a light has
come, and in her love, Stone discovers unhoped for joy, and, perhaps, unbearable
As you can see, my blogs tend to be the best
stop to keep up with all the stuff that's going on! And, I've posted a few of
the new items that I'm currently working on, one of them being my first shifter
story. You can have a peek at that one here.
Formerly called ROGUES, revised and
New Dawning International Book
Genre: Adventure Fantasy/Romance (mildly
Three stories, one kind of hero, pirates
anyone? Includes the short stories Angel-Fire, Storm-Singer, and The Phantom’s
Lair… Historical adventure, and the darker mystery of an ageless vampire who

And what about my very first contemporary
cowboy? Well, are you ready to share the TEXAS HEAT? It's coming soon
from New Dawning International Book Fair. Details here!
Chase Jordan is a
man with half his life missing since his return from the war in Iraq. He arrives
back in Texas, a drifter looking for home. When he arrives at the Double D
ranch, the owners know him, even if he can’t remember them. Cheyenne’s been
infatuated with Chase since her high school days, but Deke MacKenzie’s already
made it clear to Chase that his kid sister is off limits.
A loner by nature, and even more so now as PTSD plagues
him, Chase rejects Cheyenne’s efforts to seduce him. He senses complications he
wants no part of if he gets too close to her, and part of his soul is very much
at home on the Double D. When an old boyfriend of Cheyenne’s goads him into a
fight, his anger put him on all kinds of edge–and Cheyenne’s determination to
turn up the Texas Heat get her in over her head...
Chase has warned her, he doesn’t play nice. When she
ignores his invitation to leave, she puts herself at the mercy of his anger, his
lust, and the most explosive passion she’s ever experienced... But what happens
when the “job” is over, and Chase turns his back on her again? Memories are
waking, the kind that will change both their lives in dramatic
My next release is December 20th, and will
be my first with Crimson Frost Books. This is a revised to the point of being
new version of Royal Consort. TRIAD OF POWER is now a trilogy, and
First Quest is the rewritten Consort tale. I've arranged for the cover
reveal to be tomorrow, over at Sweet 'n Sexy Divas. I promise you, it's a hugely
different look for this story, but the cover's wonderful!
I have two more blog hops before the end of
this year, and one of them involves our furry friends. It's the Christmas Paws
hop, and as always there are fabulous prizes to be won - this time a $200 gift
card, plus a special gift for your special fur baby. So, please do come over and
check out all the great posts, plus enter to win!
In other news, I've signed my third contract
with Eirelander Publishing for a wicked/naughty little story that was inspired
by the old 900 phone numbers that were so popular in the late 80's and early
90's. If you're old enough to remember those beautiful, buxom babes who were
begging you to call them, you'll get the humour that is part of 1-900-SURPRISE!
No cover yet, but I'll keep you posted, because I have a feeling it will be an
I've been reintroducing readers to a lot of
