It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  For today's selection, I've chosen a snippet that features the hero and heroine, Zach and Lisette:
“You’re worth it.”  Cupping her face in his hands, he pressed a tender kiss to her lips.  “I would do anything for you, Lisette.”  He kissed her again.  “If you told me tomorrow that Tracy had inadvertently thrown away your favorite throwing star, I would fly to the nearest landfill and comb through the mountains of reeking, dripping garbage until I found it.”  He thought about it for a moment.  “Actually that would probably be a lot less irritating than dealing with your immortal brethren has been for the past forty-eight hours.” 
She laughed.  “Poor baby.  You’re just not a people person, are you?”  
“Not by any stretch of the imagination.”
You'll see quite a bit of Zach and Lisette in Shadows Strike.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Favorite Quote Friday #155

Happy Friday!!  I've been working hard, editing Shadows Strike, Immortal Guardians Book 6, which tells Ethan and Heather's story.  I'll turn it in to my editor next week, so you might want to visit my Facebook page to see if I'll celebrate with a Flash Giveaway.  :-)

I've been getting a lot of emails, messages, and comments, asking who the hero of Phantom Embrace, the novella I've written for the On the Hunt anthology, will be.  Now that I've turned it in, I'm ready to announce that the hero of Phantom Embrace will be . . .  Yuri.  :-)

His heroine has been on my radar for a long time.  I'm glad Yuri finally found her.  ;-)

Today is the last day you can enter to win an Immortal Guardians Kindle or Nook ebook (winners choice of books already released) or one of two Immortal Guardians swag packs.  You can find the details and enter HERE.

Night Unbound received a fantastic 5-star review from Bears Read, Too, which declared it "Freakin' Phenomenal!"  Here's a snippet:

"There are so many things I love about this book and series!
  • The characters (especially the grumpy ones!)
  • The relationships and unbreakable friendships
  • The family dynamic
  • The plot and style of writing
  • The dialogue is hilarious!
  • The fact that the writing and pace is so good that each chapter flows with perfect ups and downs making it impossible to stop reading and the pages pretty much turn all of their own volition!
  • … and certainly not least but the hot & sexy romances"
You can read the full, fabulous review HERE.

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  For today's selection, I thought I'd give you a narrative quote taken from Night Unbound, Immortal Guardians Book 5, which tells Zach and Lisette's story.  
Though shadows had been Zach’s friend for thousands of years, he found no comfort in them now.  He had not slept in two days, thanks to Seth’s precious Immortal Guardians.  Nor had he made love to Lisette. 
The last irritated him far more than the first, of course.  Zach craved her touch like a cat craved catnip.  His existence had always been so bereft of affection and passion and tenderness that—now that Lisette had given him a taste of it—he constantly wanted to drink more in, to bathe in it and relish every kiss and touch and gasp of ecstasy.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Cover Reveal, News, and #Giveaway!

Happy Friday!  I have a lot of news to share with you today!  I'll start with this:

I have a cover and blurb for Shadows Strike, Immortal Guardians Book 6!!

The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out...

U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.

Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive...

What do you think?  It will be released on August 25, 2015, and is now available for Pre-Order at the following websites in paperback and/or ebook format:

Amazon • Kindle • iTunes • Kobo  BAM!

One down, one to go!  I turned in "Phantom Embrace", the novella I've written for the On The Hunt anthology, which will also feature stories by Alexandra Ivy, Rebecca Zanetti, and Hannah Jayne.  I've already heard from my editor, who said it was great!  No revisions necessary.  Woohoo!!

I'm currently editing Shadows Strike and will turn it in soon.  I'm so excited!!


Looking for a gift to buy that special someone in your life who loves paranormal romance?  Or are you, perhaps, looking for a new series to try yourself?  Then I have excellent news:  The first four books in my acclaimed Immortal Guardians series are on sale this month!  Two of the books were nominated for the RT Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Vampire Romance.  All received 4.5 star reviews by RT Book Reviews.  And all were deemed Top Picks by RT Book Reviews, The Romance Reviews, and/or Night Owl Reviews.  

Prices start at just $1.99.  And, if you'd like my first novella, In Still Darkness, it's $1.99, too.  :-)  You can click on the individual book links on my right sidebar or use the links below, which will take you to my book list on participating sites.

Kindle • iTunes • Nook • Kobo

To celebrate all of the above, I thought I would have a giveaway here on my blog in place of my usually Favorite Quote Friday post.   

Grand Prize
A Kindle or Nook copy of one book from my backlist, winner's choice.

2nd and 3rd Prize

(2 postcards, 6 bookmarks, and 6 trading cards)


The contest  runs from December 5, 2014 through December 12, 2014, 11:59pm Eastern.  International entries are welcome.  However, if you win the ebook and I have difficulty sending you your gift via or, I'm afraid your prize will be forfeit.  I've had some difficulty recently with regards to sending gift cards internationally and don't know if the same will occur with an ebook.  Hopefully, it will not.
