You all know I love writing about both cowboys and bear shifters. Sometimes I have a tough time deciding who to make the hero of a new story…a sexy cowboy or a hunky bear. It’s that dilemma that gave me the idea for this new series…why not write about a cowboy who just so happens to me a bear shifter too.
Cowbear Haven was born and I’ve just released the first book called Sweet Seduction.
Once again, I’ve decided to publish it through KDP Select so Amazon is the place you’ll find it for at least the next three months. Added plus is if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you get to read it for free.
Here’s an excerpt and the synopsis and I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I did writing it….
Joely’s set her heart on going to art school and has been working to pay for her tuition. However, her boss has been keeping a secret and now she has to find somewhere to hide out.
What better place than Cowbear Haven where no human dares to go? It just so happens that they’re in dire need of a cook. Not that she’s ever been one, but fake it till you make it.
Trey’s relieved that he’s finally found a new cook, that is until she arrives and he realizes he’s got two big problems on his hand. She’s young and pretty and she’s clearly no more of a cook than he is.
He’s got a don’t mess around with the staff policy but can this cowbear keep his mind and hands off the new cook or is does he have to accept that Joely’s his destiny and mate?
Come along with Joely and Trey to Cowbear Haven, a ranch where bears can heal and work and sometimes fall in love.
“What needs doing?” she asked.
“How about make the toast and get the bacon out of the fridge,” said Trey.
He watched as she ran about, put a load of bread into the five toasters, and then got the boxes of bacon out and handed them to Mikey. The cold air from the fridge had made her nipples hard and the t-shirt was transparent. He didn’t know how the guys would react when they saw her. He knew how he was reacting.
“I think you should put an apron on,” Trey told her.
He looked straight at her boobs and couldn’t seem to focus any place else. Trey grabbed the apron and handed it to her. “We don’t want you getting that t-shirt messed up,” Trey quickly added.
I also don’t want other werebears ogling those breasts and nipples.
She grinned at him as she tied it around her waist. He guessed he wasn’t that great at lying.
“I’ll go tell the guys to get seated and breakfast will be served shortly,” Trey said.
He wanted to calm everyone down before a riot broke out and he also needed to get out of the kitchen. His temperature was rising and it had nothing to do with the oven and burners being turned on at full blast.
She made him hot and horny and normally that wouldn’t be a bad thing but she worked for him and Cowbear Haven, and this was downright inappropriate.
“Is breakfast nearly ready because we have fences to repair in the outer pasture,” David called to him.
“It’s on its way,” Trey assured him.
“So she hadn’t quit,” Ian asked. He sat down beside Trey. Ian was second in command and in charge when Trey was gone from the Haven.
“No, she’d just overslept.”
“She seems very young to be head cook.”
“She’s packed lots of experience into her short life.”
“You smell something burning?” Ian asked, putting his nose into the air.
The piercing sound of the smoke alarm sounded throughout the lower level of the house.
“I better go check on the kitchen,” Trey said, standing.
“And the cook too,” Ian said, winking at him.
Some of you might have already read the books in my Perfect Paring series. It’s been five years since the first story was published (Take a Chance On Me). I recently got rights back to the book and decided to reboot the series, tweak the name…it’s now Perfect Pairings, and add more content.
Another thing I decided to do was enroll the book in Amazon’s KDP select program which means it will be on sale exclusively there for the next three months but don’t worry if you don’t have a Kindle because you can download an app and read it on your computer too.
Here’s the synopsis and an excerpt and I hope you enjoy this rebooted tale of Sadie and her matchmaking company.
What do you do when you’ve been sentenced to fifty years of hard labor in the Department of Love and it’s your job to match couples who might never met? Plus, you can’t use any of your witching skills?
If you’re Sadie Sutton you open a matchmaking agency called Perfect Pairings…
Sadie’s been a bad witch and now has to pair two people who thought romance and love wasn’t in their destinies.
Meet physical therapist, Rachel and returning soldier, Mitchell. Both have something from the past haunting them but Sadie knows it’s something that can draw them together and make them fall in love.
Will she be right or will her first attempt at matchmaking go horribly wrong and will she resort to a little witchcraft?
Disciplinary Hearing 21: Witches’ Realm Board v. Sadie Sutton
Sadie put her knitting down and instead decided to channel her nervousness on the simple art of tapping her fingers on her lap. By nature, she wasn’t a worry-wort, but being summoned to a hearing of this nature meant only one thing: trouble ahead.
She couldn’t blame anyone besides herself. Who would have thought having a little fun would result in her being ordered to appear before The Board? The hearing had gotten underway ten minutes ago and things did not look good for Sadie.
“And how much was the total cost of the damage to her neighbor’s car?” asked the chairwoman, Margery.
Sadie slid down on her chair. She knew the answer to that: a hell of a lot. Mercedes Benzes aren’t cheap things to fix.
“Twenty-five thousand dollars. There was also damage to the front lawn and part of his house when he drove the car into his living room,” Becca said, flicking through her notes.
Now that last part had been his own damn fault. He should have hit the brakes as soon as he’d felt himself careening into the front yard.
“And Mr. Mooney. Did he suffer any injuries?” Margery asked.
Becca turned back to the first page of her notebook. Sadie glanced down at her fingers, this time pretending to check her nails. Sadie knew what was coming next, and for that reason couldn’t bring herself to look Margery in the eye.
“He broke his nose. He needed ten stitches in his forehead, and is still recovering from a broken leg.”
Sadie slyly looked up for just a minute to see if she could read any emotion on the chairwoman’s face. She was a cool character and Sadie knew it would be tough figuring out which way Margery would vote.
Margery pulled her glasses down to the tip of her nose and glared over their rims. Sadie tried not to look her directly in the eye, but Margery, being older by 175 years, had more power and Sadie couldn’t resist.
The older witch beckoned her over to the chair directly in front of the table that seated the five head elders.
I could run but what would be the point? I wouldn’t make it to the door without them out hexing me. Time to face the music.
Today, March 21st, head over to The Romance Reviews to win a copy of Callum, book one in my series, Cowboy Tough.
Good luck everyone!
I just released a book in my brand new series Big Sky Lawmen.
As you can guess each story will be set in some part of Montana and feature a lawman and the woman who steals his heart.
The first story, Matt, is loosely based on onr I published with Evernight in 2012 (How I Met My Lover).
Here’s the synopsis and an excerpt…hope you enjoy the book.
Matt Hennessey is sheriff of Glacier Valley County and wants nothing more than to have the county return to its law abiding ways. Big city trouble seems to be moving into Big Sky and when a local FBI agent asks Matt to go undercover he has no idea that another crime’s about to be committed.
Emily Garwood has just returned home to Montana and plans to go to law school but money’s tight. She runs into an old school friend who somehow talks her into giving the escort business a try.
When Matt agrees to pose as a client he doesn’t count on the escort being cute and curvy and just his type. He comes away with little information about her boss but knows he’s somehow fallen for a lady with a shady job.
Emily has no idea the man who she’s fallen for is the sheriff but when Emily’s friend is beaten and ends up in a coma, it’s up to Emily and Matt to work together to find the culprit and rid Big Sky of the bad guy.
Can they both get the job done and will true love shine through?
Emily looked at the clock on the pay per view box above the TV. It was almost 7.20 p.m. Mia had told her the client would arrive at 7 p.m. Maybe he’d changed his mind. Perhaps this was a sign that she wasn’t supposed to go ahead with this. Her hands had been shaking for the last half an hour while she’d sat on the bed and waited.
The minutes had passed like hours.
All sorts of horrible thoughts had gone through her mind. What if she didn’t excite him? What if she couldn’t make him hard? What if he wanted her to do something she didn’t know how to do? She should have checked out some sex websites before heading here. Maybe even taken Mia up on her offer to sit in and watch her in action. Nope, she’d never be able to look Mia in the face again if she’d done that.
And what about her? What if she didn’t get excited about this guy? What if he was repulsive? What if he didn’t get her wet enough and it hurt like hell?
Mia had told her the client had paid for a regular session which was two hours. Just how would she keep him continually entertained for that long?
The clock turned to 7.22 p.m.
He definitely wasn’t showing. He’d changed his mind.
Yeah, and so had she.
No way was she cut out for this sort of thing. Sure, she’d spent most of the day at the hairdressers getting her hair cut and highlighted, even having her nails manicured. And yes, the technician had talked her into applying stick-on false nails because Emily was a bad girl and bit hers down to virtually nothing.
And let’s not forget that this was against the law.
What was I thinking? I’ve got to get out of here.
She grabbed her bag and threw it over her shoulder. If she left now everything would be fine. She’d phone Mia, and maybe she’d still have time to race across town and get here in time for her client. Well, that was if he even showed up. Emily headed to the door, ready to exit and run as fast as she could, vowing to forget she was even here and was about to do something this stupid, when she heard two raps on it.
Damn, too late.
Her legs shook and they were now downright wobbly too, and she doubted she’d even get one in front of the other to walk, let alone run. She just had this awful feeling in the pit of her stomach that — what was his name? — yeah, Mia had told her Matt.
She’d tell him he had the wrong room. She’d send him down the hallway on a wild goose chase, and when he wasn’t looking she’d make a mad dash for the elevator.
This was it.
She opened the door ready to tell him the bogus story, but holy shit, he was gorgeous. No, this could be the client. The guy really did have the wrong room because why would a man who looked like this have to pay for sex?
It’s March already and it’s party time over at The Romance Reviews.
I’m taking part and March 21st I’ll be giving away an e-book which will be a copy of Callum, book one in my Cowboy Tough series. In the meantime check out The Romance Reviews’ site for more goodies you can win.
As many of you know I’ve been slowly revamping my back titles. I had a whole bunch of stories that were previously published by Cobblestone Press. Some of them I wanted to give a total makeover while others, a slight tweak. I had one called The Hamilton Men that had been part of my Big Bad Bosses trilogy. It was one of my favorites and I didn’t want to do too much to it. I came up with the idea of making it part of another established series and Fantasy LLC has become its new home.
It’s now told in first person, present tense, and this time Fantasy LLC has delved into some time travel.
Here’s the synopsis and an excerpt. BTW, this is the first time I’ve made my own book cover so I hope you like it.
Fantasy LLC, an exclusive organization where only a lucky few get to live out their wildest sexual dreams and let their inhibitions run free.
It’s not for the faint of heart and money or fame can’t buy you a way in.
An anonymous panel of philanthropists decides who will be the lucky recipient of the month. Application forms and essays are judged on their creativity and how turned on they get by what the applicant wishes for.
Winners are everyday people, bored housewives, teachers, doctors, virgins, and people just like Mathilda Wellington who was lucky enough to be picked as this month’s recipient…
Mathilda works in a library and her favorite area that houses the Victorian erotica. When she dares to write to Fantasy LLC describing how she’d like to be transported to Victorian England and be a maid in the home of a sexy British man, she has no idea that she’s going to live each minute as if it’s really happening.
Can time travel really happen…Mathilda’s about to find out…
“Thank you, sir.”
“That’s the second time you’ve blushed.”
“I’m sorry, sir.”
“No reason to apologize.”
He puts his hand on top of mine. “Soft too. I would imagine they’d feel wonderful on my body.”
My hand shakes as he holds it and run his index finger over each knuckle, paying special attention to the indentions between them.
“Is there anything else I can get you, sir?” I don’t know what else to say or what to do.
“Some toast, and a generous helping of the kedgeree.”
He finally releases my hand. I manage to walk to the table where the food sits in silver dishes. My legs shake, wondering what he’ll do next when I return to the table.
I place the food in front of him, and as I turn, I can’t be one hundred percent positive, but I’m sure he just touched my bottom. I freeze on the spot.
“I can’t see your face, but I’m guessing you’re blushing again.”
It wasn’t my imagination. He did touch me.
“That’s all for now. Go back to Mrs. Williams, and she’ll tell you what to do next.”
I’m slowly revamping books I’ve recently gotten rights back to and I’m almost caught up…for now at least. Here’s my latest one. It was previously published by Cobblestone Press under the title of Ghost Lover.
I’ve now changed the narration to present tense, re-edited it and given it the new title of Ghost of A Chance. If you haven’t read it already, I hope you’ll check it out.
Here’s the synopsis and a short excerpt-
Dr. Jennifer Hartley overhears talk about a ghost haunting room 229 at Rosewood Inn in a village in England. Not just any haunting but that of a sexual nature. Intrigued, she decides to book a visit there and it’s in room 229, she gets more than she bargained for. It’s not one but three ghosts that haunt the room. All three men are the perfect lover for her but it’s one in particular who captures her heart.
Does she have a ghost of a chance of them ever becoming permanent lovers?
I lean my head back in the taxi. Jet lag has already kicked in. I tried to sleep on the flight to London, but crying babies and people wandering up and down the aisles had made it impossible. Now my eyes are gradually shutting as I head through a village on the outskirts of Maidstone, Kent. Will Henry, Ian, or maybe Nigel be waiting for me? I hope so. I’ve come this far, paid all this money, so I’m determined to have the sexual adventure of my life. I shift my ass on the seat, already feeling a pleasant stirring in my pussy. Will I get fucked in the shower? I’ve been looking forward to it on the entire flight. I set my head back some more, determined just to rest my eyes and not fall asleep.
I wake and sit up so quickly that my neck pops. We’ve obviously arrived because the taxi driver has opened the back door and is shaking my arm.
“I’m sorry I must have dozed off,” I say.
“Don’t worry. Happens more often than you’d think.”
I look out, seeing the Tudor beams and white brick front with the four-star sign hanging outside of the Rosewood Lodge.
I dig through my bag, pull out some bills and a tip, and hand them to the driver.
“Thank you. I’ll get your bags out of the boot for you.” I smile, remembering boot is the trunk.
A doorman from the hotel nods and comes over to carry my luggage for me. As I go into reception, I notice they have two restaurants. Not that I’ll be leaving my room for long.
“Good morning. Do you have a reservation?” asks a young girl dressed in a blue jacket and matching skirt.
“Yes, Dr. Jennifer Hartley.”
She taps at the computer keys. “I did request room 229,” I add.
I see her glance and raise her eyebrows at the lady standing next to her. They both smile.
“Yes, most women do,” she says.
I got ahead of schedule and as this book was ready I decided to release it earlier than planned.
It’s an anthology of four of my stories that were previously published by Cobblestone Press.
Taken for a Ride, The Vampire’s Seduction, Stranger in Town and Friends with Benefits.
If you haven’t read them before I hope you’ll enjoy them all together in this one book. And if you use to buy my books at All Romance E Books remember you can buy them at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Smashwords, and most other online book stores.
Taken for A Ride
When two nightclub employees decide to go for a ride in one of the customer’s cars they get more than they bargained for.
The Vampire’s Seduction
Rachel loved her job at the private investigation company and recovering a client’s jewelry was all she had in mind the night she attends a party at the home of Shane Stevens. She’s always found him different to other men but is in the surprise of her life when he catches her red handed sneaking around where she’s been told not to venture.
Stranger in Town
The last thing Laura Reed needed was to end up in the ER while she’s out of town on a job interview. However, not all is lost when Paul Crosby mistakes her for his sister. Laura soon discovers that being an out of towner has its pluses.
Friends with Benefits
What goes around comes around or so Ashley believes when she does a good deed for her BFF. Teaching the baking class isn’t her ideal of fun until a tall handsome stranger walks in.
My final release of 2016 is published today and it’s Big Bad Bear which is book 3 of my Forbidden Shifters series.
It was one of my favorite stories to write because it has two love stories rolled into one.
Here’s the synopsis and excerpt.
Welcome to Bay Harbor Springs, one of the first towns in Benningan County to experiment with the idea that their bear shifter population and non-shifter residents should finally be allowed to date, have sex, and possibly mate.
Before legislation passed, all shifters were known as forbidden and any shifter found to have anything but a platonic or business relationship with their non-shifter counterpart would be forced to wear a radio tracker, be fined, sometimes jailed, and repeat offenders were banished from Benningan County for ten years.
The non-shifter female residents sometimes found this rule the hardest to abide by because everyone knows that a bear shifter is downright hunkalicious.
Many women found themselves unable to resist these sexy werebears and many of the bad boys paid the price by handing over huge fines for a short kiss while others spent time behind bars for a quick rendezvous in the backseat of a parked car.
The Non-Shifter Alliance (all male) have decided that each month a limited number of permits will need to be issued before any sexual activity can commence and it’s on a purely first come first served basis.
As you can imagine, a record number were applied for just minutes after the ban was officially abolished and sexual encounters with the Forbidden Shifters began soon after.
These are the stories…
Josie Moss has finally found her man. Now all she has to do is find some way to get into his house so she can arrest him. Pull off this assignment and she’s on the fast track to promotion in the Werebear Division of Enforcement. However, this isn’t just any man. It’s Transporter, Liam Quinn, werebear and all around sexy hunk and he’s not likely to go down without a fight. Josie doesn’t count on him being ten times more handsome in person than his mugshot and that she’ll becoming putty in his hands. When he leaves her naked and tied up with her own handcuffs, she vows to track him down again.
After being put on the Second Tier offender’s list, Liam wants nothing more than to get even with Josie. There’s only one problem… she might be his mate.
Can these two ever get past their differences, put aside the fact that it’s the hunter versus the hunted and live happily ever after?
Holy cannoli, I wanted him so bad, to have him make love to me and this time in my bed.
I tried to dial but his scent and arousal took control again. My juices ran down my inner thighs. I looked at him and he smiled. He knew exactly what he was doing.
“You coming to join me or what?”
I threw down the phone and ran over to the bed, jumping onto it and him. Before I knew it he had me over his lap and my butt was sticking in the air.
“Someone’s been a naughty girl,” Liam said.
I knew exactly what he was referring to.
“You know what us bears do to bad girls?”
“I’m sure you’re going to show me,” I said.
His hand came down on my right ass cheek.
“What have you got to say to that?” Liam asked.
Could I have another came to mind because although it stung, it had actually turned me on.
“A girl has to do what she has to,” I said.
His hand hit the other cheek this time and my nipples turned hard and tender and I creamed.
“I can smell your arousal, Josie Moss.”
“And I can smell yours too,” I told him.
He spanked me twice in quick succession and I guessed the skin on my ass was turning pink.
“I really shouldn’t give you want you like, what turns you on, but maybe I can use that as your punishment.”
