It’s Raining Feral Warriors!

November 7, 2012 · 1 Comment

Grab the nets! I’ve got all kinds of Feral fun for you to catch.

If you love the Feral Warriors and want a never-before-seen glimpse into Lyon and Kara’s story, or if you’re new to the Ferals and want to find out more about these uber hot shape-shifters, I have news! Avon Books has just released (and only for a short while), a special version of Book 1, Desire Untamed with Bonus Material, for just 99 cents!

To celebrate, I’m doing a fab giveaway of a Kindle Paperwhite over at Bitten By Books Thursday, Nov. 7th. RSVP beforehand to increase your chances of winning!

Book 7 in the Feral Warriors series, A Love Untamed, will be in bookstores December 26th and by popular demand I’ll be hosting another Pajama Party at Feral House. Mark your calendars for Sunday, Dec. 9th from 2-4pm EST for two full hours of giveaways, tiny teasers from A Love Untamed, trivia questions, and the occasional appearance by a Feral Warrior or two.

Last, did you know there’s a Feral Warriors novella? Hearts Untamed was originally published as part of the Bitten By Cupid anthology, but has been re-released as a stand-alone e-book for just $1.99. This is Zeeland and Julianne’s story, but several of the Ferals play supporting roles. And this is the story where Melisande, the heroine of A Love Untamed, is first introduced. You’ll get more out of A Love Untamed if you’ve read the novella first. Just saying…

There’s more Feral fun over at my website: excerpts of A Love Untamed, a Fox postcard giveaway, etc. If you haven’t signed up for my Newsletter, don’t forget to do that, too, while you’re over there. It’s the easiest way for me to keep you up-to-date with what’s going on with the Feral Warriors and Vamp City.

Go Feral!





Hearts Untamed is Out Today!

September 18, 2012 · 2 Comments

I’m delighted to announce that my Feral Warriors novella, Hearts Untamed, from the Bitten By Cupid anthology, is now available as a stand-alone e-book for just $1.99. This is the story that introduces Melisande, the bad-tempered and dangerous Ilina, the heroine of my upcoming Feral Warriors novel, A Love Untamed (releases Dec. 26th). Plus, you’ll see Jag in his bad-boy glory, Kougar, and Hawke before any of them found their mates. (For those who prefer print books, Bitten By Cupid is still available.)

From the back cover:

Ten years after he spurned Julianne’s declaration of love and then vanished, Zee’s back—only this time he’s the one being rejected. Julianne’s in desperate straits, and involving Zee could jeopardize his immortality. But he won’t take no for an answer—and Julianne’s about to discover that her former love is even wilder than she thought…

Many Feral fans have told me that this is the story that first introduced them to the Feral Warriors. If you haven’t read it, I hope you’ll take this opportunity to pick it up. Because maybe, just maybe, Zee and Julianne have a role to play in a future Feral Warriors novel. Just saying… ; )

Cover Reveal! A Blood Seduction

January 6, 2012 · 12 Comments

I can finally share with you the gorgeous cover of my first vampire novel, book 1 of the Vamp City series, A BLOOD SEDUCTION!

A Blood Seduction hits bookshelves (and ereaders) May 29th!

From the back cover:

Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world…one who knows nothing of the power she wields. Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see–and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can’t do is forget about her–any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission–his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red. Welcome to Vamp City…


And the Hero of the next Feral Warriors book is…

December 1, 2011 · 63 Comments

Everyone keeps asking me, “Which Feral’s book is next??” Today I’m going to tell you.

First let me explain that I’m plotting the next three books in the Feral Warriors series simultaneously. Like usual, the main romance of each will be resolved in that book. But also as usual, the external plot will continue from book to book, and the action of the next three books promises to be intense, continuing the story arc that began with the arrival of the new Ferals.

The other thing I keep hearing from readers lately is, “Please let the next book be Wulfe’s!” If you’ve been reading the series, then you know I’ve been setting up Wulfe’s story. Wulfe is such a sweetheart, and yet so badly scarred, both inside and out. That Feral needs a happily-ever-after. And he’ll get one.


Wulfe’s story arc will be increasingly important to the overall plot of these next three books. But, as such, it won’t be wrapped up in book 7. Or even book 8.

So, rather than leave you in suspense about when Wulfe will get his book, I’m going to break my own rule and tell you the heroes of the next three Feral Warrior books. They are:

Book 7 — Fox

Book 8 — Grizz

Book 9 — Wulfe

Rest assured, I have wild things planned for all three of these Ferals! Wulfe, especially. You’ll get to know more and more about him in the next couple of books. So stay tuned for book 7, Fox’s book, in late 2012.

In the meantime, you might want to give my Esri series for Nocturne a try. It’s about the invasion of Washington, D.C. by the Esri, the creatures at the heart of the legends of fairies and elves — the man-sized, malicious beings who’ve been locked out of our world for fifteen hundred years and have only just discovered their way back in. Their mission? To enslave the human race. And only a handful of humans who can’t be enchanted have any chance of stopping them…if they realize what’s going on in time.

My first two Esri books, The Dark Gate and Dark Deceiver, came out a few years ago and are only available in e-version or as used books, though you should be able to get your hands on them. I’ve posted excerpts of each on my website. The last two in the series, A Warrior’s Desire and Warrior Rising, will be out the end of January and March, respectively. You’ll find more info on the Coming Next page of my website.

And the end of May, watch for my first vampire book. A Blood Seduction begins the five-book continuing-character Vamp City series — a dark, exciting, vampire romance. Here’s another goody to put on your calendar: Dec. 5th (four days from now), I’m posting a very early sneak peek of this book on Lori Devoti’s blog as part of her 30 Days of Vampires celebration.

That’s all the news for now! It’s time for me to return to my writing cave. The Ferals — Fox, Grizz, and Wulfe, in particular — are waiting.

Go feral!

Finally! Hawke has arrived.

I’ve been waiting for this day with as much anticipation as a lot of you have, which might seem kind of odd. After all, I’ve read the book. More than read it. I wrote it.

You know that anticipation you feel when you’ve bought…or even better, made…what you hope is the perfect gift for someone very, very special? You’ve spent hours thinking about this gift, searching for it or working on it, wrapping it up prettily. And now you’re on pins and needles, waiting for them to open it, hoping they like it as much as you think they will.

Release day for an author is just like that. It’s filled with anticipation, joy, and yes, a touch of nerves. Just a touch because, so far, the reviewers are loving Ecstasy Untamed. And I’m breathing so much easier.

The thing is, I never know if the book I’ve written is any good. Never. My mom doesn’t get this. “How can you not know?” But I can’t. Certainly not right after I’ve written it. I’m way too close. And think about it–I’m seeing scenes, hearing dialogue, feeling emotions. But I have to distill all that into words–words you take into your brain and transform into pictures and action and emotions. Did it work? Only you know.

Writing often feels like sculpting in the dark to me. That’s why I work with two critique partners, trusted writer friends who read everything I write, even before my editor sees it. They’re my first set of eyes. They see clearly where my sculpture needs a little more work or a little smoothing of rough edges. My editor is my second.

You’re my third, and the ones who really matter, because it’s for you that I write. So let me know if you enjoy the book. And if you do enjoy it, let others know, too, please? Word of mouth is everything when it comes to books.

Go feral!
