Cover for The Mating Hunt


Here's the cover for The Mating Hunt, book 2 in the Werewolves of Montana erotic romance series.

I'm making good progress on writing this book, which will be much longer than The Mating Chase.

Right now, there are five books planned. They are in order:

The Mating Chase (Dale and Beth)
The Mating Hunt  (Kyle and Arianna)
The Mating Ritual (this will be another short, Darius' story)
The Mating Challenge (Aiden's story)
and
The Mating Season

I am hoping to have The Mating Hunt released in June. Unfortunately, I fell behind the anticipated schedule because of travel and an increased work load at the day job. But I made the decision to write the best book possible, and not rush The Mating Hunt. Instead, I'm reshaping it into a much better, tighter story with more emotion, action and adventure, and of course, lots of romantic love! 

Here are the links to The Mating Chase, the first story in the series. Happy reading, everyone!

Book giveaway!

April is my birthday month, and I'm celebrating with TWO book giveaways!

First, I received my author copies of Phantom Wolf, my June Nocturne. I'll give away one copy to TWO lucky readers.




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!



Second, I will give away a free download of my new digital-only historical, The Patriot's Conquest, to TWO lucky readers.




Is the red-headed beauty who appears through the smoke in the blacksmith’s shop forged from a dream, or Jeffrey Clayton’s worst nightmare? An avid patriot aiding the colonies in the cause of freedom, Jeffrey knows Amanda Reeves is spying on him. He has vowed to never fall in love again after his fiancée betrayed him to the British. But the bewitching, fiery Amanda threatens to weaken his resolve. If he doesn’t tread carefully, Jeffrey could face worse than losing his heart — he could hang for sedition.

Amanda Reeves craves acceptance among the gentry, but a debt of her father’s threatens to send her family into the almshouse. If she finds evidence of Clayton’s treason against the Crown, the governor will forgive the debt and introduce her into society. But the handsome, dashing Jeffrey is a dangerous rogue, for he incites the very passion that caused her to flee her beloved England in disgrace. The prim and proper Amanda finds herself helpless to resist his advances, even as she fights the desire he arouses.

Amid the rumblings of revolution stirring sleepy Williamsburg, Amanda and Jeffrey surrender to the burning attraction flaring between them. But as sensual passion sparks into an inferno, an enemy lies in wait to trap Jeffrey, and will stop at nothing but his death . . .

New release! The Patriot's Conquest

My original, new historical, THE PATRIOT'S CONQUEST, is now available! This is the book of my heart that I wrote years ago, after the horrific events of Sept. 11. I usually use writing as an escape from trauma, and the terror attacks of that day affected me deeply. So I traveled to Williamsburg, Virginia and decided to throw myself into my country's history, and write a book about the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

The result was a book called The Lady & the Patriot. The hero was a handsome, dashing patriot pitted against a lovely British woman spying on him. 

I loved this book, but the time period was all wrong for many publishers. So I set it aside, and last year, dusted it off, heavily edited it, then gave it to a freelance editor.

The result is a new book called THE PATRIOT'S CONQUEST.
