Hi everyone. I'm back from traveling to Guatemala for the day job and wanted to let you know about a new short story I just released called The Mating Chase. The novella is now available for only 99 cents!
Welcome to the sensual world of the Lupine, where the burning drive to mate claims all...
Home from college, where men teased her for being overweight, Beth doesn't fit into pack life at the Mitchell ranch. Because she’s forgotten how to shift into a wolf, the pack alpha has ordered her to choose a mate or leave. The only male Beth desires is Dale, a fiercely protective Lupine who loathes the human lifestyle she embraces. She hungers for the handsome shifter’s touch, but fears their differences are too vast to overcome.
Dale has waited for four long years for Beth’s return. Her scent ignites his desire and her voluptuous body fires his blood. He is determined to awaken her to the sensual world of the Lupine. Although she acts more “Skin” than wolf, he can’t deny his overwhelming drive to claim her.
As the heat of passion threatens to consume them both, a new peril arises. Someone is killing a local rancher’s livestock and blaming it on wolves, endangering the pack’s ability to shapeshift. It will take all Beth’s courage and Dale’s skill to find the enemy threatening to destroy their world...
The Mating Chase is a novella that introduces a new series of ebooks called Werewolves of Montana, about werewolves in Montana determined to find mates.
The next book is The Mating Hunt and has an anticipated release date of late May, 2013. Each story is an erotic romance, a little hotter than what I normally write.
Although these are independently published books, each one will have been edited, proofread, and formatted by professionals.
It promises to be a busy year, as I am preparing to release The Patriot's Conquest in April, an original colonial historical, followed by The Mating Hunt. Then on June 4, Harlequin releases PHANTOM WOLF, my new Navy SEALS Nocturne .
And I'm also traveling much more for the day job. I'll be in Jamaica in April and Nicaragua in May.

Hi everyone, meet the fabulously talented JENNIFER LYON, who wrote a really yummy book called THE PROPOSITION. I asked Jennifer to guest blog about her book. Be sure to check out the link at the end for more info!
Thank you, Bonnie, for having me here today! THE PROPOSITION is the first book in my Plus One Chronicles series. This is an idea that has percolated in my mind for years. But after living through my son’s injury that has forever changed his life, Kat and Sloane exploded fully formed in my mind and demanded to have their story told. I set aside everything else I was working on to give these two characters the story they deserve.
This is a quick blurb of the story:
Ex-Ultimate Fighter Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda. Kat Thayne just wants to hide behind the light, sweet creations at her bakery. When a dangerous, sexy proposition brings them together, will Sloane chose vengeance or passion?
And here is one of my favorite scenes between Kat and Sloane from THE PROPOSITION:
“What did you want to talk to me about?”
“Us.” He scooped up his fork and sank it into the piece of cake.
“Us.” He scooped up his fork and sank it into the piece of cake.
She leaned back, needing distance. Okay, yeah, she felt the attraction. Maybe he did too. But Kat wasn’t going there. The last time she’d been with a man sexually, five years ago, she’d had a panic attack. “I don’t date.”
He smiled. “Convenient. Neither do I. No time, no interest.”
Then what did he want? She was ready to demand an answer when Sloane lifted the fork laden with coffee cake, parted his full lips and slid the bite into his mouth. Then he pulled the fork out, slowly, as if he couldn’t bear to miss a morsel. His eyes went dusky, deepening from tawny to rich sienna.
That sound, low and vibrating, speared through her. Tension tugged at her belly and chased out her ability to breathe. Sloane eased the fork back into his mouth as if he couldn’t bear to stop tasting the treat, his stare consumed her with the same ardor he applied to eating her cake.
She pressed forward, wrapping her hands around her coffee, desperate to touch…something. God, for years her desire had been mostly dormant, and she’d poured her passion into baking.
But this man, Sloane, was destroying her with one touch of his hand and one bite of her coffeecake. Jesus. She clamped her jaw, refusing to ask him if he liked it.
He lowered his fork to his plate and leaned in.
It took every speck of muscle control she had to keep from tilting toward him.
Then he said, low and slow, “Like tasting sin.”
Wet heat slid down her belly until she shifted in her chair. She had to get control of this situation. Making herself sit back and stop acting like she was in search of an orgasm, she said, “Why are you here, Sloane? Stop playing, I don’t have the time for games.”
“I want to see you, Kat.”
She sucked in a breath. “You just said you don’t date.”
“I don’t.” He took a sip of his coffee. “I plus-one.”
She was familiar with the concept of plus-one, but not his context. “That differs from dating how?”
“I’m busy. I don’t have time for complicated relationships and expectations.” His voice was pure business, then downshifted into a husky note. “But I like sex.”
“Huh, who would have guessed?” He oozed sex and danger like other men sweat.
“But I do have a lot of social obligations. It’s simpler to find a woman I have chemistry with and make her an offer. She’ll attend functions with me as needed. In return, I’ll give her something she wants. And we have sex.”

Hi everyone. Sorry I've been remiss in updating this blog. The past few months have been extremely busy. I expect to have much news to report soon. In the meantime, here is the cover for my June Nocturne, PHANTOM WOLF. And the blurb:
Some fires still burn when star-crossed lovers reunite...
When a dangerous mission leads him deep into the jungles of Honduras, navy SEAL Sam Shaymore is confronted with his fiery past in the form of Kelly Denning. Once their romance had been forbidden because of class differences. Then a tragedy drove them apart. But the minute he looks into her eyes, Sam knows he's never forgotten the sultry kisses and luscious curves of the beautiful Enchanter Mage. Nor can he turn his back on helping her.
Sam's unit has been charged with arresting Kelly. But if he can believe her, Kelly needs his help now to save some kidnapped Mage children and to stop a conspiracy with far-reaching implications. Threatened with being kicked off his SEAL unit if he does not follow his orders, Sam must risk everything...even his heart!
