December Newsletter @DenyseBridger #RomFantasy

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:

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 hereThere 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.

Heart of Stone
Available from:
Amazon  |  Bookstrand

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 sorrow?

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 reedited
New Dawning International Book Fair
Genre: Adventure Fantasy/Romance (mildly erotic)

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 keeps a witch at his side, his protector and his lover through eternity...

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 ways.

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 interesting one!

I've been reintroducing readers to a lot of my older titles recently, and one of the best ones is THE GATES OF INFINITY. Part pirate tale, part time travel fantasy, and very sexy, it's a title worth visiting if you haven't encountered it before:

The Gates of Infinity (novella)
Genre: Erotic Pirate Fantasy

THE GATES OF INFINITY lead to a different world where passion and deception may yet destroy two universes about to collide. Will time continue to turn upon itself, or will the mirror of our world open the gate and return stranded pirates and their sorcerous consorts to familiar shores?

Check out all my older titles with Liquid Silver Books right here

For many readers, you will never have seen some of these works, including my Jack the Ripper inspired Victorian mysteries, The Devane Files: Out of Hell and An Unspoken Betrayal. Some of the my best stories!!

I now have two books out in Audio format, and the second one is superb. If you like romance that is take-your-breath-away, try the new release of BELLA SIGNORINA. It's finally out in the original version I wrote, a little sexier, but sigh-worthy romantic!! Find it here in AUDIO:  Or, in eBook

There will be lots more news coming next month - some of it I hope very exciting. Already signed and release dates pending are the following titles:

DEFECTOR from Midnight Frost Books: Action thriller, non-romance
CHAMPAGNE AND CHOCOLATE: Historical Western, erotic romance (This one was a total blast to write!) Publisher pending
TEXAS HEAT: New Dawning
RETRIBUTION: SILENT DEATH: Erotic thriller, Crimson Frost Books
GRANDE AMORE: Sensual romance novel

Works in progress:

KEEP IT A SECRET: Book Two of the Secrets Trilogy for Ellora's Cave
TEA AND TEMPTATION: Ellora's Cave special call
SPICE AND GYPSY MAGICK: Ellora's Cave special line
UNLEASH YOUR PASSION: publisher pending


WHEN SHADOWS FALL: Book one of a vampire/dark fantasy series
AN ALTERATION IN DESTINY: Fantasy novel that involves the Roman Gods.

Final Hop of the year is the Mistletoe Hop. Lovely giveaway again, and I hope you'll stop by over the three days it will be underway!

2014 is shaping up to be an amazing year, and if the momentum of this year can be carried forward, great things may be waiting. Thank you, as always, for your continued support and friendship. I hope you are all blessed with love and happiness this Holiday Season, and in the coming year.
