 Hello everyone,

I hope 2021 is treating you all better than 2020. There have been so many changes over the past 2 years, leaving very little time to write. Sadly, I've had to put many projects on hold while I finished my degree, we relocated (and are about to move again for the hub's work), and the most exciting  thing happened at the start of the year, we welcomed our first child. Baby G has been growing in leaps and bounds. At 8 months, she has 4 teeth and has already begun stumbeling around the house.

I've been writing and reading when possible, and I will share updates when I have them.

 I wish you all the best!

 Hello all,

 I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this crazy times. With so many things going on all at once, it's been difficult to balance it all: family life, work life, school life, military life, and my writing life. I had big plans for 2020 when it came to my books, but I am no where near my goal and, sadly, other book projects have had to take a backseat. If you have any questions, please comment or email me. If you are a part of my newsletter group, I will be sending out some updates regarding my scheduled book releases in October. 

All that being said, I do have some amazing personal news. Not only will I be graduating in the next few months with my next degree, but my husband and I are expecting our first child! We are beyond excited. 

Best wishes,

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

~That calmness was his prize, but if he couldn’t have it then he’d take another. His prize, his peace would be the maddening mystery woman.
A low growl rumbled from his chest. Yes. He’d claim her.~

The Darkest Light (Eternal Kiss #1)
My latest work in progress
An immortal warrior renowned for his savagery and the woman he covets for his own…

Scarred, powerful, and merciless, Evyn lives only for violence and vengeance. Determined to destroy the one responsible for his imprisonment, there is nothing he won’t do to accomplish his mission…until he meets a vulnerable, turquoise-eyed beauty.

Adelise stokes the flames of his dark desires and awakens a hunger within him he has never known. But the tempting mortal possesses a dangerous secret—the key to Evyn’s victory.

Torn, he must choose between a century-old blood-vendetta and the woman who has become his obsession. Will he return to the brutality of his past and sacrifice Adelise to have his revenge or will he risk everything to claim the woman he craves body and soul?

Reading Challenge - Summer Reading

For the 2020 year, my goal is to read 60 books. Thus far, I haven't made much progress, but this week I've knocked down 3 books. All have been 4 to 4.5 stars and for that reason, I'd like to share them with you.

Happy reading!

Winning Miss Wakefield (Wallflower Weddings #2)
Vivienne Lorret

She's got nothing left to lose…

With her fiancĂ© suddenly engaged to another and her reputation in tatters, Merribeth Wakefield needs a bold plan to reclaim her life. She must be brave. Confident. She must … kiss a rake? The suggestion is ludicrous! Yet when Merribeth finds herself alone with the dark and brooding Lord Knightswold, suddenly the plan doesn't seem so farfetched. So she does something she never thought she'd do—she kisses him.

But he has everything to gain…

The Marquess of Knightswold—Bane to most—has no use for the affections of women. Well, none lasting longer than a single night. A plot for revenge weighs heavy on his mind, leaving no room for romance. But then a shy, witty miss borrows a kiss from him in a darkened room, and everything he thought he knew about innocent debutantes vanishes along with her.

When a twist of fate brings Merribeth within Bane's grasp, he'll have to resist her charms—or risk losing everything—for the sake of his heart.

 A woman seeks revenge by posing as a housemaid and taking down the rogue that broke her sister's heart in this character-driven, sinful, historical romance. Justice. That's all Nell Trim wants-for her sister and for the countless other young women the Marquess of Leath has ruined with his wildly seductive ways. Now she has a bold plan to take him down . . . as long as she can resist the scoundrel's temptations herself. From the moment Nell meets James Fairbrother, the air positively sizzles. Yet for all his size and power, there's something amazingly tender in his touch. Could he really be such a depraved rogue? The only way to find out is to beat the devil at his own game . . . one tempting kiss at a time. Anything can happen in the moonlight . . .

When Beauty Tamed the Beast (Fairy Tales #2)
Eloisa James

Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses.

She estimates the earl will fall madly in love—in just two weeks.Yet Linnet has no idea of the danger posed to her own heart by a man who may never love her in return.If she decides to be very wicked indeed . . . what price will she pay for taming his wild heart?

It's been awhile!

Hello everyone!

I hope this post finds you and your well family well. I've been away for awhile and my explanation is one word - LIFE.  Unfortunately, The Darkest Light expected release date has come and gone. I've been forced to push all of my projects back and I'm hoping to get back on track in the next few weeks. Once I have some solid information regarding timelines and release dates, I'll post! Until then, I wish you all the very best. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay sane(ish).

Best wishes,

Sexy Snippet Tuesday - Rulers of Darkness Box Set

Sexy Snippet Tuesday! 

Today's snippet is from Caressed by Night (Rulers of Darkness #2). Warning, Dimitri Arsov can really heat up the sheet.

 Purchase all 3

           ~  Kerstyn could feel his gaze locked on her pulse. Tilting her head to the side, she gave him a better view. Dimitri cursed and closed his eyes.
            “It’s…okay,” she said between gasps.
            “Too much,” he gritted out, “I took too much before.”
            Kerstyn reached up, tangling her fingers in the blond strands at the nape of his neck. Tugging, she brought him down, his body crashing upon hers, knocking the air from her lungs.
“I want you to do it,” she whispered.
Answering with a snarl, the demon took control. As Kerstyn’s orgasm rocked her body, Dimitri’s fangs sliced her throat. His mouth pulled at her tender flesh as his own pleasure claimed him. Kerstyn cried out his name as she felt him jerk within her, releasing waves of heat.
            Control, he cautioned himself. But damn! She is delicious.
He continued to pump through his orgasm, his hips thrusting and withdrawing as his mouth greedily worked at her throat. Another orgasm shattered her world as he kept going and going. Pulling away, he closed her wound and raised himself up again, his eyes still flashing between shades of color.~

Caressed by Moonlight

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.
Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.
After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire, would bind them for all eternity, but treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.

Caressed by Night
Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundred years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.
Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.
While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.

Caressed by a Crimson

Consumed by madness and tormented by dark memories of blood and death, Hadrian Lucretius, King of the Validus Clan, has returned after living in self-imposed exile for nearly three hundred and fifty years.
To maintain peace with the vampires, Eva Maldonado is offered as a sacrifice to the crazed vampire king by her father, the alpha of the Silveria Shifter Pack.

When Eva arrives at the ancient fortress high in the Carpathian Mountains, she is shocked to find a ravaged man with dark burning eyes filled with loneliness and dangerous desire.
