Winter Holiday Story Roundup!

And by “roundup” I mean MY winter holiday stories, because there are ten billion wonderful winter holiday stories by other people and only THREE by me, which means I have a lot less work to do!

You are more than welcome to hook me up with other winter holiday books in the comments! I particularly love winter Regency stories, anything by Carla Kelly (link to search page of deliciousness:

Story One:

holiday on ice cover HOLIDAY ON ICE: Book 2 of Tallwood Tall Tales, novella length

Darcy’s got some pretty severe claustrophobia, so how is she going to survive being trapped in an ice storm, in the cab of a truck, on a packed interstate, with the hottest guy she’s ever met? And she really needs to pee, man. Just when you thought Christmas couldn’t get any more stressful.

Story Two:

  Tallwood Tall Tales PREQUEL (short story)

Winifred Sampson can’t believe Peter Duvall ruined her new cashmere sweater at the honor society banquet and her secret crush, quarterback Chase McKnight, saw the whole thing. When an ice and snow storm hits Tallwood, Tennessee, right before the holidays, it looks like it might be a white Christmas for a change. Will Peter somehow ruin her Christmas too? Or is Mother Nature evil enough without Peter’s help?

If the King is fated to love thirteen women before he turns fifty, is he still husband material? One cold, snowy Wintertide Eve, Queen Geneva of Foresta tracks her straying spouse in an attempt to discover where it is he goes at night (a motif that may reoccur later in life, when she has twelve dancing princesses on her hands.)

As she labors over the solution to her husband’s curse, King Reginald is attempting to discover a solution for a problem of his own–and for the entire Middle Kingdoms.

Why Do Wizards Hate Shirts?

Today I’m excited to share the release of my first “new” book since last year! SILVER BOUND is the story of a dragon shifter who escaped captivity in her dimension and the wizard who has made it his life’s quest to protect her. Except…she hates wizards and she is NOT the shrinking little violet he thought needed his help.

You can just go straight to Amazon and buy it if you’re already convinced!

But here’s that whole thing with the shirts. I mean, this is a mystery that needs solving.

There is a contest running with about 15 or so other authors who released stories set in Magic, New Mexico, today, and you can check out the details at the book page.

Until then, stay tuned to this blog, because I’m going to be interviewing many of my fellow authors…

Ok, ok, *I* am not. Meankitty is interviewing them. But I’m sure the answers will be interesting!

One More Down, Eight or So To Go!

Newly refurbished and released…but still full of romance, gnomes, fighting, snark, and good times!

Can a magical feline teach two stubborn fairies to open their hearts in time to save the world?

Embor Fiertag, Primary of the Fey Realm, has three goals. Get reelected, capture the rogue agents who tried to murder him, and improve his love life. His foretold bondmate is Anisette Serendipity, a Court trainee, but he hasn’t precisely shared the prophecy with her. How do you inform someone she belongs with you when she’s dating your chief political rival and doesn’t seem to like you at all?

In truth, Ani has always been intimidated by the stern Primary. He has good reason to disapprove of her–her sister nearly got him killed–and he always seems to be monitoring her. Waiting for her to screw up so he can oust her from Court as well. So why does Ani run straight to Embor after an overbearing suitor attempts the unthinkable?

When an unsavory political strategy gone all too right turns most of Court against Embor, the two of them, plus a manipulative magical feline, are forced to flee to humanspace. There they’ll have to find the courage to share their vulnerabilities and their hearts if they’re to have any hope of saving the entire Realm.

This title contains sex, fairy drugs, rampant gnomes, bloodshed, and cats ruling the world. As they should.

Note: 1000 Kisses was titled One Thousand Kisses when published by Samhain Publishing until 2016. This edition has been reedited, reformatted, and updated with a new cover but has not been substantially altered.

Buy it at Amazon and Smashwords — so far! Or is there somewhere else you want to buy it? Let me know…

Also, if you already own this and just want the updated version, contact me and we’ll talk :). Not a ton of changes, but hey, why not?

Now With Added Oxford Comma!

SOTF has slipped back into publication. Edited, reformatted, recovered, and still hilarious. I read it back to front and put that Oxford comma back where it belongs. If you haven’t yet gotten your copy of this funny, freaky, fantastical Fey Realm fantasy romance, now’s a good time while it’s on sale for 2.99.

If for some reason you happened to have used your Amazon account to buy the paperback that was released from my previous publisher, the new ebook version only costs .99 with the Matchbook program!

You can check out the excerpt and buy link at Amazon or on my book page.

Going Out Of Print…

Sadly, one of my first ever publishers, Samhain Publishing, is going out of business at the end of the month. If you got any of my books there, be sure to download them before February is over! Books that will be temporarily out of print include:


Survival of the Fairest
1000 Kisses
Liam’s Gold




What She Deserves
Claustrophobic Christmas

Actually I’ve requested and received the rights back to Kiss the Bride, with Entangled, since it’s a Tallwood Tall Tale as well, and I guess the Tallwood books need to stick together.

I already republished A SPELL FOR SUSANNAH with a beautiful new cover, which was my first published novel with Samhain, and I hope to share new, improved and possibly CONTINUED versions of the above books and series with you during 2017 and 2018.

Are any of the books mentioned a favorite? What should I do first besides dare to pet that cat on her belly?

5 Days of Terrible Freedom

For the next five days (today is April 21) my entire Mari Shu series is free on Amazon to celebrate my escape from the Kindle Unlimited program when I forgot to cancel out the automatic renewal! After that it will go wide.

But you’re going to get it now, right, for FREE?


Earthbound Passion: The first volume in the series focuses on what happens if Mari Shu’s choices lead her and her sisters to remain on Olde Olde Olde Olde Olde Earth while she supports them as a sexxorer.

Martian Conquest: Volume two finds Mari Shu and her sweet innocent siblings venturing to Mars to find jobs and a better life, even though it appears some people there have…illegal cybermech appendages.

MariShu3_Far_Galaxies_100Far Galaxies: The third and most insane of the Mari Shu volumes sends Mari Shu, Cassie and Trish into the beyond on a huge sleep-pod ship destined for New Terra, the pilgrims in Olde Earth’s attempt to populate the entire galaxy! What adventures await them at the end of the line–and in between?


The Whole TruthI also made The Whole Truth free. It’s not a spoof, it’s a snarky urban fantasy-lite style book about a twenty-something who can see lies and has mostly used that secret skill to get good deals…until the men in black find her.

I think it’s actually a pretty darn good yarn. The Mari Shu books, on the other hand, really need some highly offended reviews on Amazon, people saying these are the nastiest, weirdest, most offensive things they’ve ever read. I feel like that’s a great way to spur sales! I’ll even send you a fill in the blank Mad Libs style review form if you want to post a review but don’t really want to write one :).

No, seriously, Meankitty does Bad Libs and now you can, too.

Smart. Snarky. Seductive. And that’s just the books. *

Which Meme Is Best?

So, Susannah is now available again!  Only at Amazon so far but still — available and ONLY 99 cents for a week or two. If you liked Maleficent, Cinderella or any of the other fun fairy tale re-visionings that have been in the movies lately, Susannah is kind of like those, except sexier.

Anyway, which meme do you like best:



(This one ^ also has a version with fewer words.)

Sex, Booze and Rock and Roll!

Now re-appearing from the depths of history…

Okay, fine, from a few years ago.

Natalie Damschroder, Megan Hart and I wrote interconnected stories about several ladies who have second chance at the night of a lifetime — back stage passes after a concert from their favorite rock band, Blue Silver.

When they were teenagers, it didn’t work out. But now that they’re adults of consenting age…and their teen dream band goes on a reunion tour…everything will be different this time.

Hope you like sex, booze and rock and roll, because we sure wrote you some!

Dreams don’t come true, but nightmares do.

When Zeke Garrett is reactivated to mentor the next dreamer that pops up on the Somnium’s radar, he’s sure it’s a mistake. The covert organization is still struggling to conceal the fallout from his last assignment, a fatal catastrophe.

From the first blast of her pepper spray, he realizes this neonati, whose nightmares manifest vampires straight from the pages of pop-culture, is more than he bargained for—a potential dreamwalker. But before her training can begin, he has to convince the stubborn, mouthy woman she’s not dreaming.

Maggie Mackey hasn’t slept well in a month, but that doesn’t explain how the monsters from her nightmares suddenly seem so real. Or why, when a team of intimidating, sword-wielding toughs rescue her, their leader captures her mouth in a swift, knee-weakening kiss.

Once he tears himself away, Zeke’s mental forehead smacking begins. Their embrace has confirmed they have a rare tangible bond, a phenomenon which fooled him once before. Somehow he must tutor the woman of his dreams without getting attached. Otherwise her nightmares could become his own.

Warning: Title contains lots of cussing, pop culture references and monsters with nasty, big, pointy teeth.
