We now have a release date for Friends with Benefits from Dreamspinner Press! Jan. 28th!

And we have a release date for Friends with Benefits from Dreamspinner Press!  January 28th!  I'm sooo excited.

Playboy wolf shifter Wiley can’t duck out of his pack’s biggest annual event, despite knowing his grandmother has possible suitors lined up and waiting. Wiley has no intention of settling down, and the situation dangles just above disaster. Thankfully, Wiley’s best friend, lion shifter Ram, agrees to pose as Wiley’s boyfriend for the weekend.

 They find out fate has other plans when they kiss on a dare, and the passion erupts, so hot and intense they fear the couch may spontaneously combust beneath them. Neither man is able to push the small act of affection from his mind, but both struggle with uncertainty and the ramifications of following where their libidos lead.

 If they can’t outrun their feelings, they’ll have to muster the courage to face their fears before they lose everything, including their friendship.

It's on the coming soon list and available for pre-order on their site.

Secret Cravings Publishing Blog Hop Update!

The blog hop continues for one more day!

I'll be giving away a copy of Human Interaction, book 1, in PDF format to a person who can tell me about their favorite species of shifter and why. I'll draw numbers tomorrow evening and make a decision. I'll need an email address from the winner in order to send the copy of the book.

I'm sorry, I can't do any other format, I'm a techno dufus, so PDF is all I can do. So, please don't ask me to change formats.

Contest ends tomorrow at 8 pm CST.

Have fun!

Christmas is almost here! So, for the next few days, I wanted to talk about the holiday, traditions, and everyone's experiences.

With Christmas right around the corner, I thought I'd look to the past and try to find out what other people's experiences are with the holiday.

Let's start with holiday traditions. I'm sure most families have something they always do for Christmas, whether it be visiting someone special, a unique ornament on the tree, perhaps even the dinner.

I can't say that my family has a lot of traditions, to be perfectly honest. We used to have a big Christmas, but as we've grown up, things have downsized so much. Not all bad. So, I think the one thing I think about most for Christmas is the holiday specials on TV. Since I was a kid, I couldn't wait to see all my favorites:  Rudolph, Frosty, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Yeah, I know. Those are all the animated specials, not the movies with real people. Oddly enough, I much prefer the cartoons over the movies. Always have, always will, I suppose.

Tell me about some of your traditions that you'll always remember about Christmas!

Need some holiday cheer? Christmas with Mesa releases tomorrow! Tis the season for rediscovered love and Christmas miracles!

Guess what releases tomorrow?  Christmas with Mesa!  I'm so excited! Happy Holidays everyone. Here's to love rediscovered and Christmas miracles!

Fed up with being the pawn in her parents' continual bickering match, Kendall decides to avoid all the fuss and take a well-deserved vacation over Christmas with her rescued German shepherd dog, Mesa. Finding a pet friendly resort, she heads off for some much needed rest and relaxation only to bump into an old college boyfriend.

Jason and Kendall parted ways four years earlier when he graduated a semester early and left for graduate school, eventually losing touch with one another. Long ago buried feelings re-emerge as they get to know one another once more.

Can they re-kindle lost love and find a way to stay together or will history repeat itself?

Wounded Warriors Project Blog Hop

Join me for a blog hop in support of the Wounded Warriors Project. 

These brave men and women have given so much already and face many challenges when they return. Anything from post traumatic stress, amputations, head injuries, scars, to unemployment and difficulty fitting back into society.

For this holiday season, let's remember what these people have done and support them in their quest to regain their lives. 

As an author who writes military heroes, this cause is near and dear to my heart. My Wind Warriors series. 

The Wind Warriors exist for one reason: ridding the earth of the most vile and lowest forms of humanity in existence. Former special ops members, these retired military men and one woman still carry the fire and drive to protect the innocent, only now they work in total secret, pick and choose their missions, and have free rein to complete their assignments in the most complete way possible. They take on impossible odds, put their lives on the line, and are only known to exist by the very top level of national security. Failure isn't an option.

For them, finding love and settling down is a dream. Their career keeps them on the move and at the mercy of a phone call. Not to mention, the danger anyone attached to them could face if one of their targets tracks them back. Yet, as each one stumbles across a special person, they can't help but wonder if just maybe they can balance both work and love for the right person.

After all, Wind Warriors are brave, smart, and downright determined. What they want, they find a way to get. 

The Wind Warriors series is available at all booksellers.

Cover art for Ghost's Treasure (Wind Warriors #7) I LOVE this cover. It's absolutely perfect!

Another new pretty to share. This is for Ghost's Treasure (Wind Warriors #7) coming from Totally Bound in April. I LOVE this picture. Thank you Edward Kendrick for finding it and sharing!  It really is Ghost in his element.

Unedited blurb:
Josie discovers a hidden treasure in a box of books from an estate sale. A naïve online inquiry sets forth a chain of perilous events as potentially deadly thieves emerge from the woodwork. Rattled, she turns to the FBI for protection.

After a tragedy years before, Ghost swore to dedicate his life to wiping the earth of evil while locking away any and all feelings in order to carry on. When a buddy calls in a favor, Ghost reluctantly accepts the bodyguard job to a pretty biathlon athlete with a body that wouldn't quit and an inquisitive, bubbly nature, which bordered on amusement, if he could still feel emotions.

Josie's heart breaks for what tight-lipped Ghost must have suffered and vows to return humor to his stoic existence, if he'll just give her a chance.

With bad guys hot on their heels, can Ghost protect her from their deadly intentions? Can Josie discover the man underneath the impenetrable shield and remind him how wonderful happiness and love can be?

Coming in April from Totally Bound Publishing

Summer never expects to meet a man like Night, intelligent and downright sexy. She bristles under his dictatorial tone, stands up to him, while beginning to see the man underneath. A man she could spend a lifetime with.

The past comes back to haunt Night, dragging Summer into the midst of danger. Can he gather the team and rush to her rescue before it’s too late and he loses the woman he’s come to love?

Guess what? Species Interaction arrives tomorrow! Let the party begin!

Guess what arrives tomorrow?  Species Interaction!  Book two of the Human Interaction series releases tomorrow from Secret Cravings. I'm sooo excited. Here's a sneak peek from the book, too!


Shyanne McDaniel, a young widow and mother of two small boys, loses her heart to Meat, an exotic dancer and alpha liger shifter, but dating another species proves a challenge.

While trying to figure out how to deal with an alpha shifter that likes the word "obey" way too much for her liking, Shy juggles raising her twin sons, taking local college classes, dealing with an adoptive family that leans heavily toward odd, and her job. She finds herself working for a man called Cannibal and battling for Meat's attention from a cover model shifter, all the while trying not to think too much about her gift prize threesome fantasy weekend, Meat's nun fetish, and her penchant for finding trouble.

Finding love again is never easy, and doing so with an alpha shifter only makes for more challenges. Can they work out their differences and love one another for who they are?


I wiggled on Meat’s lap as he licked at the ticklish spot just behind my ear. The movements earned a groan from him and gave me a strong hint what his near future intentions were, if the large bump under my rear had anything to do with it.

A second later, Meat spun me halfway around, wrapping one arm behind my shoulders, while the other slipped under my knees. He stood swiftly and easily, cradling me as he strode away from the table.

“Don’t forget her spanking.” Ducian’s voice carried across the room. “She’s been anticipating it all afternoon.”

I gasped and looked up into my boyfriend’s face and immediately forgot the sassy comeback to the vampire’s reminder.

He looked intense. Deep blue eyes flashed, a growl resounded from his throat. His lips pulled back in an almost grimace, reminding me of the Wild Kingdom episode about lion matings. Meat carried the same facial expression as a male lion scenting a female right before he climbed on board for some serious species reproduction.

My belly somersaulted.

I had a strong suspicion Meat’s inner kitty prowled just under the human skin, snarling in demand for things his way. The biting used as punishment for not seeking his protection, the strong control, and the predatory attitude all shouted one thing. Feline displeasure.

Which meant I was about to get a quick lesson in female submission to an alpha male liger intent on staking his claim while proving his dominance once and for all.

I bit back a whimper of strong desire.

The Cover Model Releases Tomorrow! Excerpt!

 The Cover Model releases tomorrow!

What happens when Fancy, an uptight researcher, finds herself at a scientific conference sharing space with hundreds of avid romance novel fans and a hunky, big time cover model named Mitch right next door?  She bangs on the door and demands the orgy stop at once, of course.

Yet, deep down they sense something in one another which might explain why they keep gravitating toward each other.  Mitch can’t help teasing the innocent and outspoken Fancy even as she lectures him on hotel etiquette and blossoms right before his eyes.  Add in his greatest fan with a criminal past that he’s supposed to track down, penis suckers, a risqué photo shoot, a kidnapping, and Cinderella's ball, and the fun never stops.  In true fairy tale fashion, they fall for one another, but will this particular tale end as the last book closes at the convention?

Secret Cravings:

Pick up your copy today and prepare to laugh and sigh over one of the hottest cover models around by the name of Mitch!


His cobalt blue eyes sparkled with mischief. “Baby, knock on my door sometime, and I’ll show you good.”

“I’m surprised you can fit in the elevator with such a huge ego.”

“That’s not the only part of me that’s huge.” He waggled his eyebrows.

“Oh good grief.” She threw her hands up in the air. “Can’t you think of anything besides your overused penis?”

“Nope.” With a final grin, he ambled down the hall toward the elevators.

“Oh my.”

Fancy glanced up at Molly, immediately standing so the other woman could sit. “I didn’t sell anything.”

The other woman waved her hand. “No biggie.” She glanced at a retreating Mitch. “I can’t believe the sparks flying.”

“What sparks?”

“Between you and the hottest cover model around.”

Cover art for Friends with Benefits. I LOVE working with Reese! She's exceptional!

Here's the cover for Friends with Benefits, a January release coming from Dreamspinner Press.  Reese is amazing!  I especially love the lion guarding his baseball.  LOL. 

Unedited blurb:

Wolf shifter Wiley is in trouble.  He can't duck out of his pack's big annual event, but already knows his grandmother has suitors lined up for him to choose one and mate.  Considering he's a confirmed playboy with no notion of settling down with one man, the situation dangles just above absolute disaster.  

 Luckily, his best friend Ram, a lion shifter and fellow baseball teammate agrees to save Wiley's butt, posing as Wiley's boyfriend for the entire weekend.  Wiley's thrilled, knowing they can pull the harmless deceit off, then return to their normally scheduled lives.  
Unfortunately, fate has other plans as they find out when dared to actually kiss.  Passion erupts so hot and intense, they fear the couch will spontaneously combust under them.  Both men can't push the small act of affection from their minds, but each struggle with fears, uncertainties, and ramifications of following where their desires lead.  They find they can't outrun their feelings, but can they find the courage to push past their concerns and take a leap of faith before they lose everything including their friendship?

Loco (Wind Warriors #2) releases tomorrow!

Loco (Wind Warriors #2) releases tomorrow from Totally Bound!

Loco lives in the fast lane. A traumatic event in his past haunts him, spurring him on to perform increasingly more dangerous and heroic feats, impressing others but doing nothing to satisfy the guilt eating at his gut. Understanding that he will die in the line of duty one day, Loco accepts the fact as his due.

Oakley is Loco’s other half, sharing his condominium. Carrying her own deeply buried scars, she recognizes the man for what he is—intensely brave, devoted, and struggling with inner demons. As they grow closer, she finds her frozen heart thawing and vows to love the tough hero and stand by his side through thick and thin.

Can he allow Oakley into his heart and his life, knowing that he will leave her a widow sooner rather than later? Or can they learn to trust one another and finally realize that just maybe they are meant to be together?

Coming soon to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online book sellers!

I've got another pretty! The cover art for Sky's Lark (Wind Warriors #4) coming December 12th from Totally Bound

Here it is!  The cover for Sky's Lark (Wind Warriors #4), a December 12th release from Totally Bound!

When a previous mission comes back to haunt Lark, the sole woman on the Wind Warriors team, she scurries to identify a mole while staying one step ahead of the drug cartel after the bounty on her head.

Bryce, aka Sky, an undercover cop, infiltrates a drug gang in search of a high ranking traitor. Kissing her on a dare, he quickly develops a protective streak for the pretty and spirited Lark. Leaving her warning notes works fine until her identity is breached, sending them both on the run.

Can they learn to trust one another as bad guys rain down upon them? Will Lark finally discover the man of her dreams buried underneath Bryce's deceptive role?
