OUT NOW: A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS
Yes, I know. After writing six months on Her Badass Bikers, this little gem came through in one long weekend session. I'm a sucker for Christmas. I needed something Christmassy to make me feel good and I just wrote and wrote and wrote for two days, then another day to read, rewrite and edit myself and handed it over to my awesome editor Dana's Edits.
I didn't think I'd write another paranormal book after last year's A Beary Little Christmas which had bear shifters, a witch and karmic twins in it. I have tried my hand at vampire stories so often but never finished a single one. That I finished this one and in two days at that is possibly a Christmas miracle in itself.
So here goes the sweet, kind vampire Lorenzo and the love of his eternal life Sienna in this sweet, romantic slowburn of a Christmas romance that will warm your hearts while you read, preferably by an open fire with a hot drink, all nice and cosy. (And yes, there are hot scenes but by my standards, this is a very sweet romance.)
Cover Reveal: HER BADASS BIKERS
This book crept up on me and could not be denied any longer. I tried to put it on the back burner and get through my planned WIPs first (Works In Progress, for those who are not familiar with this abbreviation). But Ava and Jax called to me and when I thought, I could start writing a bit of it, maybe a short and steamy summer novella, Liam, Mace and Snubbs decided they would join and while I am on this book still, it has developed into the longest I have written so far.
There is fun, there is action, there is drama and even a couple of shootouts. Crazy family affairs and a nerdy kid who keeps everyone on their toes. And if that wasn't enough already, you've not yet met Gospel Gloria!
I had so much fun writing this, I laughed out loud in the middle of the night, waking up my cat and my daughter, I clenched my fists and had my jaw ticking, too.
The characters have hijacked the entire story and led me down a completely different path to what I had intended in the beginning, and then to what I had intended a couple of chapters in and then...you catch my drift. Anyway, watch this space so you won't miss the publishing date! It's in editing now and I am tentatively aiming for Valentine's Day because the story begins in February, so what better date to pick, right? And look at that cover! Is it hot or what?!
It was always her. Verna Firefly Dodd. She was the one woman in the world who understood me. It didn’t matter that I was born mute; I never needed to talk around her. She was beautiful and full of optimism, and she loved me too, but she shouldn't have.
It made her vulnerable. I made her weak.
I knew it, and yet I allowed myself to fall in love with her, for more reasons than I could count… But she wasn’t mine to love. She was my brother’s: his wife and his Firefly.
I’d learned to shove it down; after all, what could I say?
I was voiceless.
My inability to talk had made me an easy target in a world where judgments are harsh, and talking my way out of a troubling situation wasn’t an option. I needed Verna. She was my life raft on violent waters. My channel through the hush.
I may have come into the world silently, and I’ll leave it that way too…
But what I won’t do is go out without telling my side of the story.
And when wanting her pushes me past the breaking point, will I betray my brother and cross the line?
If anything is worth the risk, it’s her.

A Pop Punk Inspired Novel.
Do you believe in Fairytales? Everyone did at some point but then a 9 to 5 life kicks every dreamer to the curb at some point. That is where Sophia Andrews is at.
Sophia Andrews has hit the wall. Ever since she has turned thirty her life has been heading into a downward spiral. Her boyfriend has broken up with her and in three months her job will be redundant. Having worked in the same record shop since she was sixteen Sophia has no idea where to start looking. Just the one job; even she knows she does not look good on paper.
Everything has gone digital, even music which is why Record Direct is soon to be a thing of the past.
Three Months is all Sophia Andrews has to get her life back on track or just enough to keep the roof over her head. With Christmas season around the corner Sophia Andrews needs a miracle.
Maybe that miracle is in the form of two temporary staff to handle the not so busy closing down, three month sale. Sophia thinks not. There is Lexi-Lou. An eighteen year old trainee hairdresser who has no idea who Jack Nicholson is and never wears the same outfit twice. She parties every night. Unlike Sophia who goes out once every six months to attend a concert and considers that sociable. Falling asleep by 9pm in the middle of a film is her scene nowadays.
And then there is Henry. A 34 year old divorcee from London who has ruled out dating and wants a fresh start since his wife ran of with the drummer from his band.
With nothing on the horizon Sophia looks back on her life and that only brings back her nightmares. The pressure her wedding planner parents have put upon her to settle down and get a proper career are hanging over her soon to be unemployed head. If only she could go back to high school and start over. Maybe go back in time to the 90's and pretend her life is a 90's rom-com movie. At the moment it is playing out like a tragedy.
Follow Mara from an inquisitive 11-year-old trying to save her aunt who's been accused of witchcraft (as many outspoken women have been), to a student in boarding school solving her friend's disappearance, to running her country's spy ring, to trying to prevent a devastating war. Fascinating characters and a believable world, and all along, the underlying political climate that leads to intrigue and chaos.

A tragedy that claimed her fiancé’s life forced Sarah to travel halfway around the world. She thought her life would be back to normal now living in England. For two years she had avoided this topic, for a conversation that includes him is like walking on a tip of the ravine: if she falls she would hit rock bottom of pure agony.
Things weren’t always about honing his blade against the sole of his boots or polishing his rifle. When his aristocratic mother summoned him to protect the well-being of his sister, he was obliged, not only to watch over her but to withstand the rigors of being his nephew’s teacher without the young boy’s knowledge of their relation.

And to make matters worst, a puzzling and mysterious woman entered his life.
Sarah travelled back in time, became a governess of a prominent English aristocrat, learned secrets that could harm the family and witnessed the perils ahead of her and the man she come to love.

Sick of the constant betrayal, I’ve sworn off men for good. But there’s no cure for my attraction to Dr. Nicholas Barnes.
I’m a magnet for egotistical playboys. It’s been years since I’ve let anyone in. Pursuing me is merely a challenge for this overconfident ladies’ man. What else could this handsome, arrogant surgeon want with me?
I have great friends and a job in the ER I love. good night’s rest is what I need. One little sleeping pill couldn’t hurt. Could it?
But this irresistible doctor even seduces me in my dreams. It’s a delicious temptation I don’t want to stop. Yet what happens when the line between fantasy and truth becomes blurred? When you can no longer live with the constant deprivation?
This man is beautiful. He’s charming. And he could be the love of my life or my complete destruction.
Everything about Katarina Kelly tells me to run. But this brazen, brown-eyed beauty has brought me to my knees.
As an accomplished surgeon, I’ve managed my life with delicate precision. Meeting my needs without letting anyone get close has been a complex operation. Until her.
I have no problem finding sultry women. Women without enough baggage to fill a jet plane.
So why Kat?
This broken, bewitching minx is the challenge I never saw coming. The best night of my life and she walked away without looking back.
So why chase someone who’s nothing but trouble? Because I already know, without her my life will never be the same.
This woman is enchanting. She’s stunning. She could give me the future I didn’t know I wanted or leave me fractured and alone.
Turmoil is brewing, a product of past and present. Could my decisions cost me everything?
There’s no denying it. I need Nick Barnes like I need oxygen to breathe. This battle is something I no longer want to win. I’m grabbing hold of my happily ever after if it’s the last thing I do.
How do you start over when betrayal and lies are all you know? I’m taking a risk knowing she can break me.
This fiercely independent woman is determined to handle this her way. Is there a chance for us to survive this when the surgeon is the one who’s fractured? But I cannot live without her. She’s my everything.
We are headstrong. We are fiercely passionate. And when we are one, we are stronger.
Sebastian Lee is a self-serving playboy. Arrogance personified.
There’s no need for clever seduction. He merely circles his prey, just waiting to make his move. With his sinfully handsome looks and confidence to match, I’ll take a swim. It’s just one night, right? This single mom has needs too. Until suddenly, you discover the surgeon you’re working with is a shark in blue scrubs. And he doesn’t realize it’s you.
The volatile connection is no longer limited to the bedroom. This is not the kind of man you bring home to meet your son. We’ve endured enough. Yet these are treacherous waters. Is it purely lust that brings me back for more? Our chemistry is undeniable, the passion unparalleled.
Could I hope for a future with this man, driven to win at any cost? Or is this relationship one more betrayal in the making?

Daniel, Well, I am busy with the Inn and I live there 24/7.
