What story I’m currently working on:

I started into the final Discord’s Desire book, y’all. I’m itching to write queer contemporary, but this is the last of my PNR series that needs wrapping up, so I’m going to try to put some mega focus on finishing that one up. As much as I want to start Outlaws 2, Dungeons and Dating 2, or Charmed in Charleston 4, all of those series fit the new direction I’m heading in, and this one is the last of my PNR series to wrap up. I hit 4k in Alluring Refrain, which is a solid head start. I’m going to be doing sprints to try and push through this book, because it’s going to take a lot of solid effort since I haven’t been in the PNR mindset for awhile.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I DID finish editing Restrained Desires, which was a massive accomplishment. That means the entire Rehoboth Pact trilogy is ready to roll once I find a publisher and get things situated. It’s super exciting. I also dove into Saving Throw and reworked some of that, so now I’m sending out submissions in the hope that Dungeons and Dating #1 has a home by the end of the year. With the beta reader responses rolling in for Tempting Fire, I’ll probably be able to work on editing that one soon, and Waking for Winter, my final release of the year, comes out next week!

When it came to revolutions, Jett was staunchly in Camp Fuck That Shit.

Unfortunately, his bandmates had refused to take that memo.

Their drummer was even screwing the leader of this whole mutiny.

Which somehow meant they were driving to the one city he’d managed to avoid for quite some time, a place both he and Trevor stored up some bad memories. Big, maybe, but there was nothing Easy about returning to New fucking Orleans.

Midnight Heist is Under Contract!

115881934_2773839469530188_8177268843489454510_o

The cover reveal’s coming out on September 12th, and we’ve even got a release day for this book of February 27th, 2021!!!

It’s already available for preorder HERE!

Heist rule number one? Never fall for your mark.

Grif’s always followed the one rule in the high stakes business of heists: never fall for your mark. At least, until he meets Danilo Torres…

Grif Blackmore’s team of thieves, the Outlaws, take down wicked corporations and nab fantastic paydays. However, when their latest heist fails, they end up in debt to the mafia, which puts the pressure on for their next job targeting Torres Industries to go off without a hitch.

There’s one problem. The CEO of Torres Industries, Danilo Torres, happens to not only be dead sexy but unaware of his company’s corruption. When the sparks flare between Grif and Danilo, Grif can’t help but fall for his mark.

Grif is left with a decision to make. Is he willing to throw it all away for the man who’s caught his interest or is there a chance to play Robin Hood without losing it all?

What story I’m currently working on:

Currently, writing is on a break while I play catch up with everything I pushed aside to get those words down. It’s always a juggle with projects. I’m not really sure what’s next on my agenda either, whether I’m going to write book 2 in the Outlaws series, book 4 in the Discord’s Desire one, or book 4 in Charmed in Charleston! Most likely the former two, not the latter one, because I’ve got plenty of time on Charmed in Charleston since the series isn’t coming out for another few years.

What I’m editing/marketing:

What I HAVE been doing is editing like a beast. I’m down to the final pass on Restrained Desires, and once I’m done that, then I’ll start diving into some new wordage, whatever that might be. On the editing front next is retooling parts of Saving Throw before I start sending it out on submissions before the end of the year. I’m already getting some beta reader eyes on Tempting Fire, so I’ll be able to get that rolling too, and then the final release of the year, Waking for Winter, is coming up!

Aubrey caught sight of her and waved. As she did, the woman by her side turned around too.

Chelsea, of course. The woman’s gaze locked on hers, and her grin widened. Chels had changed since their earlier brunch, slipping into a crimson dress that hugged her ass and black leggings and knee-high boots straight out of her fantasies. Her rich chestnut hair lay in tumbles across her shoulders, and the dim lighting of Renegades highlighted her sepia skin.

“Hey, Ky,” Chelsea said, crooking her fingers as she beckoned her over. Fuck, the simple gesture sent her body into overdrive. The woman seemed to take a sadistic delight in teasing her, but the more Chelsea did, the more Kyle could swerve past the awkwardness and find her words.

What story I’m currently working on:

I finished out Tempting Fire at 68k, far longer than I thought it would be, but I’m just thrilled to be done! The Charmed in Charleston series is one of my favorite tropes–a romance series featuring each member of a family. There’s only two more members left on the agenda–Cal, a rockstar romance, and Matty, an MC romance. While I’m not sure which book I’m going to dive into next, I do know I’m going to continue a series, whether it’s the final book in Discord’s Desire or the next book in the Outlaws series.

What I’m editing/marketing:

As far as edits go, I’m continuing to work on Restrained Desires, Rehoboth Pact #3. I’m excited to finish that up, because then I’ll have the whole trilogy submission ready. Next on my agenda for edits will be retooling some parts of Saving Throw, and then I’ll be diving into Tempting Fire once I get some beta reader eyes on that. I’m getting prepared for the cover reveal of Midnight Heist, which will be a month from today! And before that should be the final release of the year, Waking for Winter, which heralds the end of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series!

This fucking kiss.

If Mitch had thought for a moment he could live without Penelope Dukas, he’d been a damn fool. Kissing her was like coming home. His grip tightened on her nape and he settled his other palm against her hip, bringing their bodies flushed together. The woman tasted like tequila, lime, and salt, those flavors summoning so many memories. He wasn’t gentle with his kiss—no, he dipped his tongue in to claim her mouth like he’d starved.

They’d only been separated for a few days and it had felt like a lifetime. His chest burned with the sort of warmth that filled in all the hollow crevices that had formed over the years, filling up the cracks inside him. He might be broken, but this woman found a way to make him complete. Nell let out a soft moan as her body melted against his like utter perfection. The scent of her rose perfume lingered around him like a caress, and he took a deep inhale, trying to memorize every damn thing about this moment.

What story I’m currently working on:

I’m still Charming in Charleston with book #3, which I finally figured out will be called Tempting Fire! (Thanks to the lovely Landra Graf) I’m now at 52k, which means I’m getting closer and closer to the end of this book, which is awesomeness all around. I’m hoping by the time I report in next week, this book is finished. There’s a high chance it might be, which will open up room to work on another series continuation. The only question is, do I dive into Outlaws #2 or the final Discord’s Desire book?

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’m still jamming on the edits for Rehoboth Pact #3, and I think I know where I want everything to go. Once I finish that, I’ll have 3 completed novellas ready to rock and roll with whatever place picks the book up! I’m also super excited that Midnight Heist, Outlaws #1 is going to be coming out with Hot Tree Publishing! I got a glimpse at the cover already, and it’s gorgeous. Also, on the news front, I did just sign a contract, though I can’t say for what and with who yet, but I’m super excited either way. And the final new release for this year is Waking for Winter, which is scheduled to come out September 2nd! The end of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series!

Mitch ignored the sting of his knuckles as he strode to the back and grabbed his keys. He needed to burn rubber on the pavement something fierce right now. A scream bubbled in his throat, one he’d been holding back for years now.

One of these days, he’d just erupt, and no one would show up to bail his ass out of prison.

He might’ve spent his life helping other folks, but the truth remained that he’d never see a cent of that in return. No one deemed him worth it—not for long. Mitch headed out the back emergency exit, not wanting to deal with the customers or faking a face any more than he had to. Within seconds, he’d looped around the building to the street where he’d parked his bike. He slung his jacket on and then settled onto his bike, his nerves buzzing.

What story I’m currently working on:

I’m still working on Charmed in Charleston because it made the most sense once I finished with my Rehoboth Pact trilogy! I hit 46k in the book and I’m quickly heading toward the final 15k, which is great. I have it all mapped out, so I’m hoping it continues to move smoothly and comes out well. I’m not sure which book I’ll dive into after that, whether it’ll be Outlaws #2 or the final Discord’s Desire book. Regardless, I know the next one I work on will be another contribution to a serieses.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’ve been working on the edits for Rehoboth Pact #3, Restrained Desires, and while I think I have a lot of the content under control, I do still need to tweak the ending a bit. I’m mulling over that one. I’m just hoping that one of these avenues pans out in finding a home for this series, because I’ll have all 3 books edited and ready to go by that time, which is awesome. The next book on the horizon is my last release for the year, Waking for Winter, which is scheduled to come out September 2nd and marks the end of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series!

She was in the middle of trying to divorce her husband, and the only thing she could think about was the man standing before her.

Of what it might be like to be possessed by this man, to be his.

Her mouth dried a little, but she closed the inches of space between them to press her lips to his. In the wake of the emotion broiling through the air between them, it was the only avenue that made sense. This touch made her synapses spark to life, made her feel the sheer transcendence she’d only experienced when she was a kid, heading out to Lake Moultrie for the day where she’d go fishing with her dad. The way the sun sank deep into her skin, the laughs with her siblings, the smell of sunscreen and fresh water in the air—all of it left such a brand on her she thought she’d never capture that light again.

Yet each encounter with Mitch brought her closer and closer.

What story I’m currently working on:

Well, I started into Charmed in Charleston #3 again! It’s going pretty smoothly and I figured out how the rest of the book will proceed, so I’m hoping to get some more of that done! I did figure out the basic premise of Outlaws #2 and the final Discord’s Desire books, so I’ll be diving into those ones next! I’m pretty excited. Plus, once I finish the third Charmed in Charleston book, I’ll have all the way until 2024 to write out the final two in the series.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I finished the edits on Rehoboth Pact #2, Opposed Desires, thank fuck! I also figured out the title, lol. I did already start working on Rehoboth Pact #3, Restrained Desires, because I’m a glutton for punishment! I’m just hoping that eventually I find a home for the first book in the series so I can enjoy the books coming out next year without having to worry about continuing the series. The next book on the horizon and my last release for the year is Waking for Winter, which will come out September 2nd and it marks the end of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series.

Nell didn’t miss the way Mitch carefully tried everything she’d prepared, taking a swig of the lemonade in between. The gratitude when their gazes cracked something open inside of her. She just wanted to wrap her arms around the kid who’d been neglected his entire life, who had to take on burdens far beyond his years from early on.

Every so often, his fingers would caress down her arms, through her hair, soft touches that sent her ablaze just as much as the rough ones. Nell swallowed the lump that continued to grow in her throat. From the way the waves glittered like the stars above to the tender, passionate man by her side, everything about this night was the sort of perfect that felt unattainable.

The sort of perfect that could never last in the light of day.

What story I’m currently working on:

Still no new writing this week, and I’m starting to get that itch. I’m getting further with my editing clients, so I’ll be able to dive back into one of the new books on my agenda soon. Again, I’m either going to start Discord’s Desire #4, Outlaws #2, or Eros Tales #3, which I’m just going to start calling by the new series title, Charmed in Charleston. I did get the new covers for the series which will come out in 2024, and they’re gorgeous.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’m on the final round of edits for Rehoboth Pact #2, which I need to really finalize a name for. I called it Tormented Desires originally, but I’m not in love with that title, so I’m considering something else. I might even put editing Rehoboth #3 on hiatus for at least a week so I can get some new words on the page. After that, it’s just a waiting game as I try to find a home for Confined Desires and can get this completed series a home! The next book on the horizon and my last release for the year is Waking for Winter, which will come out September 2nd and it marks the end of my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series.

Aubrey’s lips caressed her neck as the woman pinned her against the cool surface of bathroom stall, and she couldn’t help but surrender. Selina closed her eyes and let the sensations wash over her. Her core throbbed, and her pulse quickened in the wake of the way the woman bit, nipped, and sucked at the column of her neck. She’d wrapped her arms around Aubrey’s shoulders, and the woman’s hands remained on her hips with a settling grip that let her know who was in charge.

She’d always suspected Aubrey Moore would be unforgettable at this sort of thing, but the reality shattered her expectations. The scent of lemon and sage lingered around her, pure Aubrey. The woman smelled fresh and vibrant, filled with so much life. Aubrey’s lips met hers again in a crash as their mouths tangled in a collision of tongues and teeth. Both of them kissed like this might be their last one, as if they chased every final sensation together.

What story I’m currently working on:

I haven’t written all week, but I’m okay with that. I now have two books to edit, so I need to reroute my focus before I start into anything else. Plus, I’m super busy with editing clients as well. I am trying to figure out what books to dive into next, which is tough to navigate. I was halfway through Eros Tales #3, which makes me think I should dive into that next, but I also have the final Discord’s Desire book to write as well as the next book in the Outlaws series.

What I’m editing/marketing:

I started heavily into the editing of Rehoboth Pact #2, since I need to get some of it off my plate. Once I finish with that one, I should be able to jump immediately into Rehoboth Pact #3 since I already started getting beta reader input on that one! I’m antsy to find a home for that series, mostly because I’ll have a full completed series ready to send out once Confined Desires finds a home. Last Friday was super fun as well, with Tempting Ballad coming out!!! It marked my first LGBT romance published.

Chelsea pursed her lips into a knowing grin as she slipped the sides of her flimsy black skirt up higher and higher along those perfect thighs that Kyle would kill to bury herself between. Goddamn, this woman was a pure fantasy, and now she was single.

Straight. Chelsea Moore was straight, which meant she’d forever be that—a fantasy.

Chelsea whipped her sultry strands around as she flipped her skirt up, revealing black lace panties—fuck, not helping. The song began to kick into a crescendo, those lusty vocals matching the provocative moves that this woman kept upping. If she full-out stripped on stage, Kyle was pretty sure Aubrey would burn this place down. Though Selina was right. Both of the Moore girls were sticks of dynamite, and this divorce had lit Chelsea right up.

Guys in the next booth over were whistling louder than ever, nearly hanging out with their jaws dropped. Kyle couldn’t really blame them—the woman was an inferno that made her want to burn to ash.

Tempting Ballad

Tempting Ballad is OUT!!!!

One hot night together was all Renn and Leo shared, and neither expected to see the other again.

However, when Leo Kincaid shows up after one of their gigs on the other side of the country, Renn’s intrigued. When Leo produces information on Renn’s missing sister, he’s ensnared. Leo needs an alliance from an Unseelie family, a rival to those who kidnapped Renn’s sister. It’s enough dangled bait to ditch the band, and the sparks between them are immediate and incendiary.

On their own, they don’t stand a chance of retrieving his sister, but luckily for him, his bandmates aren’t the giving up sort. Together with the Discord’s Desire crew, they prepare for a fight against one of the most dangerous Unseelie families. However, spending so much time around Leo Kincaid is dangerous. Renn finds himself wanting something more, which breaks the pact he made long ago: never get attached.
