Author has written 6 stories for Fantasy, Supernatural, and Romance.

Mate of the Wolf has been released! Order here here if you're interested. Here are some blurbs taken from Siren's site,

Blurb: Shelley just wanted to get out of the city and relax by a campfire. She’s pretty sure that has nothing to do with getting kidnapped by a werewolf, who happens to be getting stalked by a vampire princess who's out to skin him for his rare silver pelt. And they say show business is tough.

Michael Hunter has found his Mate after years of solitude and months of self-induced exile. He's the alpha of his pack, and his duty is their protection. With a vampire hunting him, things have gotten tricky, and it’s not so safe for those he's charged with caring for. But now another person needs him, whether she knows it or not. Shelley is his mate, and he wants to keep her hidden with him. But when the vampire in question finds his hiding place, Michael is forced to make some hard choices. :Blurb

It's sequel The Wolf's Pack, has also been released! Order from Amazon.

And for all of you Slash fans who visit my page here, my first M/M novella Night & Day has also been released.

Blurb: Cedric, a sun sprite from a highly respected family, is soon to be married to his wealthy cousin to satisfy family debts. Miserable, Cedric is allowed one night of freedom before his wedding. A vampire lord is having his centennial, and vampires make outstanding lovers.

It is Silus Veturious’ birthday celebration, and he sees no problem with taking a human, Cedric, to his bed for some fun. One taste and he discovers that Cedric is no human, and that taste gives him the most explosive orgasm of his life.

Despite their enemy status, Silus is intrigued. He has never been with a sun sprite before, and he wants to know more about the one who braved a house filled with vampires.

Neither of their families are pleased with the match, and Cedric and Silus must choose if their new and fragile relationship, built mostly on lust, is worth risking their lives. :Blurb

Eclipse has been released! Order at Amazon if you're interested :)

:Blurb: Descended from a long line of aristocratic vampires, Dawn has been married by proxy to an elf prince to settle the cold war. But when her brother is caught in a failed attempt to kill their king, she must trust the husband she hardly knows to save her brother’s life.

Prince Aaron cannot ignore the fact that Dawn's brother confessed to wanting to murder the elf king, who is now missing, even for the sake of peace between himself and his new bride. Unless a living body can be found, Dawn will surely never forgive him for ordering her brother’s execution.

Even if he should succeed, Dawn’s body is out of Aaron’s reach. He is cursed by the dragons, and everything his skin touches turns to gold. Despite Aaron’s attraction to his wife, he must keep a careful hold over his lust, otherwise a single touch could mean her life. :Blurb:

And even more big news! Noble Romance has accepted my first M/M novel Angels and Demons for publication. I'm still waiting on the contract for that one but am still very excited it was picked up.

On a side note, for those of you who are reading or read Lady Thief and Lady Deception, I hired a cover artist, and will be putting those two stories up on Smashwords, slightly better edited, so people can download them onto their e-reading devices, phones, etc, instead of just reading straight up at their computers. The stories will always remain free on fictionpress, so don't worry about finding them missing from your favorites list one day, but to offset the cost of the cover artist, I will be putting them up for 99 cents each.

Lady Thief is already up and ready for sale, I'm just waiting for it to be included into Amazon's and Kobo's catalogue. Check it out right here. If you've already read it and adored it and don't feel like dishing out any cashola on it, then you can be just as awesome by following that link and tweeting it, or sharing on facebook, or any of that other stuff they list ;)

Between now and July 31 for the Smashword Summer sale, the Lady Thief ebook is free as intended with the coupon included on the book page :)

:Coming Soon: (I promise! sorry for the wait, I'm so close to finishing the first draft, then I'll polish it a couple of times and post)

The Fourth Wall

After accidentally teleporting into her favorite romance series, which just so happens to be a dark paranormal where the guys are all just as sexy as they are dangerous, plain Stephanie Martin needs to find out how to survive in this new world where anything classified as sub-human gets hunted down and caged like animals. But does she want to leave? Now'd be the perfect chance to live the fantasy so many romance readers have when it comes to their Heroes. Bag the man she's lusted after within the pages now that he's real and in the flesh. If he'll have her, that is.
