Sneak Peek Week, Day 6

Last day…and everything’s coming up PRINT! My first book, Erotic Research, was published way back in March 2008. Since then, I’ve seen quite a few of my books leave the “just ebook” realm and cross over into print as well. As of today, I have seven print books. And…while I consider myself an ebook author, I cannot tell a lie. I love holding my stories in paperback format. Love it.

So…I’m VERY excited to announce that between June 2012 and June 2013, I will be adding SEVEN MORE print books to my collection. Yep, that’s right. I’m doubling my previous number. Needless to say, I’m so excited I can hardly stand myself!

Here’s a sneak peek at the books that will be hitting the bookshelves in the coming year.

Dangerous Curves – The print anthology of Rough Cut and Power Play is coming June 5.

Rough Cut

When Ty invites Gwen to work on a script, she is won over by his charm. As they re-enact scenes from her book that delve into the BDSM realm, it sets Ty free to unleash his powerful cravings and exposes Gwen’s deepest needs.

Power Play

Reed is snagged by the balls when Francesca announces she fantasizes about having sex with a stranger—a fantasy he helps come true. When Francesca reports for her new position, she discovers she’s Reed’s partner. Competition is fierce—and hot. The hotter it gets, the closer they come to something they never intended…or expected.

Wild Kisses – the print anthology of Any Given Sunday and Wild Irish Christmas is coming mid to late summer!

Wild Irish, Book Seven

The child who is born on the Sabbath day, is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

Sean Collins is happy working at the family pub and sharing a house with the woman of his dreams. He and Lauren are equals in every way, including in bed, where they burn the sheets. Life is good. Even if he must hide a couple of secrets to keep it that way.

Lauren is madly in love with Sean. They share everything—almost. She can’t deny sensing…something. A certain feeling when she, Sean and their friend Chad are all together. But she doesn’t press. How can she when she’s not being completely forthright herself?

Chad is feeling pretty miserable, and renting a room in Sean and Lauren’s home has only made it worse. In a house filled with secrets, Chad’s are doozies.

When an opportunity arises to explore their deep desires, the trio plunges into a sex-filled, emotionally charged ménage. Long-buried feelings are revealed, changing their lives irrevocably. Whether for better or worse, only Sean, Chad and Lauren can decide.


Wild Irish, Book Eight

“To Conall Brannagh.”

Ewan took the bottle from his father. “Who?”

“Conall Brannagh,” Patrick repeated. “If your mother had chosen him over me, none of us would be here tonight.”

It’s Christmas Eve, and the Collins siblings have given their father a precious gift. All seven have gathered together to spend the night in his apartment above the family pub, the warm, loving home where Patrick and Sunday raised their large brood.

You’ve witnessed each child find their happy-ever-after. Now gather ’round the tree and share a bottle of Jameson with the Collins family while Patrick shares the story of how he won the heart of Sunday, his true love, his soul mate…and the mother of his seven Wild Irish.

He’s lost everything. Can he win her heart?

Compass Brothers, Book 3

Sam Compton never liked getting his hands dirty, at least not on Compass Ranch. Armed with a business degree, he’s about to become the youngest VP at an illustrious Wall Street investment firm. Until his partner in an office romance turns into an ultra-refined snake in the grass.

Staggering from the punch of betrayal, another blow threatens to level him. His father is dying. He races home to lend his brain to his brothers’ backs at the ranch, and finds something he never expected. A sophisticated yet playful woman stimulates his mind…and parts below the belt.

Compass Ranch gave Cindi Middleton’s wounded soul everything it needs: a home, acceptance, and respect—not to mention unlimited sex—from the ranch’s sexy cowboys. Despite their instant and intense sparks, Sam’s defection to the bright city lights she left behind is a big red flag. She’s been there, done that, burned the T-shirt.

Yet the heat of their attraction brings them circling back to each other’s arms…until a certain snake reappears, threatening to endanger the acquisition of the one thing Sam has realized is truly priceless.

Tissue alert! The authors recommend you have a few on hand while reading this book. To make up for any sniffles, a host of cowboys with open arms await to console you, distract you or make your wildest dreams come true.

Western Ties – coming in print Feb. 5, 2013 

How strong are the ties that bind?

Sawyer Compton commands total control in his life, inside and outside the bedroom. When he spots Compton Pass girl Leah Hollister in a BDSM club in Los Angeles, he knows exactly how the night is going to end—with her as his submissive. He’s always wanted Leah, but didn’t think she could handle in his darker urges.

Leah travels to L.A. to confirm her suspicions about her sexual desires. She certainly couldn’t explore her desires for bondage and pain with someone from her small hometown. Her plans are shot to hell when Sawyer—her girlhood crush—claims her for the weekend. She didn’t expect to enjoy the comfort his familiarity brings, even as his touch takes her to heights of pleasure she’d only imagined.

When life kicks him the gut, Sawyer struggles with the unfamiliar feeling of helplessness. Luckily, Leah is more than prepared to offer him everything he needs to recover—her body, her friendship and her heart.

Question is…will Sawyer relinquish control and accept her love?

Warning: Invest in tissues. Lots and lots of tissues. Between spicy, set-the-sheets-on-fire bondage romps and the last Compass brother coming home–you’ll need them.

Happy Hour

When Jamie and Trey make Grace the offer of a lifetime, she jumps at the chance. The threesome spend one night indulging every desire, every craving. Trey says goodbye in the morning, but when Jamie asks Grace to stay, she wonders if a happy hour can become a happier lifetime?

Slam Dunk

Trey wants Ellie. If only she’d stop holding him at arm’s length long enough to give him a chance. Ellie has sworn off workplace romances for good reason, but Trey is a serious threat to her resolve. Maybe it wouldn’t hurt to fudge the rules. Just a little.

Just Because (print anthology of Because of You, Because You Love Me and Because It’s True) coming June 4, 2013.

Because of You

When Jessie meets Caleb, the sparks fly, but pressure is the last thing Jessie needs. She needs help and Caleb is going to give it to her.

Because It’s True

Rodney realizes the future he’s always longed for may not be the one that makes him happy. He needs Jacob.

If you were to win, which print book would you like to have signed. 🙂
