You Sexy Thing!

I’m thrilled to be moderating a panel at UniversalFanCon this year! Join us on the first day of the con, April 27th for…

YOU SEXY THING!

Panel Description: Sure geeks are universal…but so is romance. Many think that just because we’re nerds that we’re not interested in, or good at, all things smexy. But that’s just not true. After all, GEEK isn’t the only thing that’s universal. Sex is as universal as it gets. Every person on Earth got here through sex. And when it comes to CONSENSUAL good sex, there are more humans chasing it than running from it. Show me a person who denies this, and we’ll sell you a bridge in Greenland that’s lined with emeralds and your own personal crew waiting to sing ‘We’re off to see the wizard!’ in five-part harmony.

When we sit down to read we want to escape, yet have enough reality where we can see ourselves in the story. So why aren’t there extraordinary books out there starring the geek of your dreams? There are. And there are a lot of them. However, if you’re not sure where or how to come by these marvelous works of art, come to our panel and talk to the authors who create them. That’s right, we’ve got you.

This panel covers:
1) Worldbuilding (all genres, from contemporary to sci-fi to fantasy)
2) How kinky can geeks get? (BDSM romance)
3) Flipping for badass gods, faeries, angels, etc. (Fantasy romance)
4) Comic/Video game genres (wrapping games & romance together)
5) Da skilled lovers (writing scenes: realistic or ridiculous?)
6) Fang-banging, video gaming romance (speaks for itself, doesn’t it?)
7) Can we have it all? YES! (Multi-cultural, interracial, LGBT romance)
8) From books to the big screen, geeky sex equals…shiny! (Firefly/sci-fi romance)

Totally me!

I posted this on my Facebook page the other day and it resonated so much, I just had to post it here, too!

This is what happens when the book is really good…

Snippet Saturday — Shiftin’ Sassy!

Scroll down for a snippet from Shiftin’ Sassy, courtesy of Amazon. Enjoy!

Derria, like her cousins at Pryde Ranch, is trained to take down the worst shifters imaginable. After chasing her bounty into the Tail of the Dragon, she discovers that this mountain gem is shifter central where they’ve managed to keep themselves off the world’s radar…until now.

Lakota Phillips keeps his status as a S.W.A.T. agent under wraps. No one from Clan Gunn in the Dragon knows what he does when he’s away from this place. But when a fellow agent shows up for reasons that make sense to no one, what is he to do?

But that may have to wait. Kerr Blackwood, the rogue they’re searching for, is a shifter from Lakota’s neck of the woods. And suddenly, Derria’s hunt doesn’t quite pass the smell test.

Warning: This book contains hot alphas, mating heat and women who stroke their guns. Bring it on, baby!

Dutch’s Sister from another Mister?

As we eagerly await Killjoys Season 2 on SyFy, I am following the cast members as if they were my personal bacon crack (all hail bacon crack! See my previously posted recipe to make this, if you dare).

I finally got the rest of my family to sit down and watch Season 1, Episodes 1 and 2, and I am happy to report that they were all sitting on the livingroom floor with their mouths hanging open trying to guess what’s going to happen next.

So I got to thinking about my own Sci-fi books, and I’m pretty sure that Scharsi, a Gen8 Super Soldier in Hide No More, would have been good friends with the “Almighty Dutch” (yes, that’s totally a Episode 6 quip).

Check out a free preview of Hide No More. Scharsi, meet the awesome people who enjoy Sci-fi romance and Killjoys to boot. Killjoy addicts, meet Scharsi. Scroll on down after the preview, but we warned — HERE THERE BE SPOILERS! You’re welcome 8)

SPOILER ALERT!!!!
So you’re probably wondering why I think these two women would give a rat’s rear end about one another. Well, as an author, the stories I write come with characters who have pasts, presents and futures. And looking at Dutch’s past, I see some similarities with Scharsi (which I think is FANTASTIC considering Scharsi’s story hit the bookshelves at least five years ago). So, I think these two would gel because:

1) They both escaped from a life of being ‘handled’.
2) They’re bad ass women who yet revel in their femininity.
3) They have soft spots for those they care about.
4) Did I mention they’re bad asses?
5) Oh, and guns ~~ they have the most amazing “taste in gear”.

Dutch escaped from Khylen (or at least she thought she’d escaped), a man who taught her how to kill without remorse. The only problem is that he underestimated his charge’s innate sense of morality. He expected an automaton, but what he got was a woman who makes her own decisions.

As for Scharsi, she had a similar situation. Her ‘trainers’ responsible for shaping her into an unapologetic killing machine as a top-of-the-line genetically engineered super soldier also underestimated her sense of self, her ability to choose the moral high ground while still being quite scary, and her ability to love even though she was taught that relationships were for the weak-minded.

Caramel Kisses

Workaholic, Sydni Cannes, should have known better than to step away from the job. Going out for a single evening of fun for this Executive Vice President has ended up as a night spent in damn jail!

Drew is aware that the sexy, sultry and brilliant Sydni could’t care less about getting involved with him. But along comes the perfect opportunity to prove that she needs him just as much as he needs her. All he has to do is get her out of jail…and keep himself free in the bargain.

Their desire scorches them. The connection, true and immediate.

But what will they do about the bad guy determined to set them both up? Solve the mystery, of course…and a little well-executed, hot-as-hell sex wouldn’t hurt either.

Warning: This book contains sexy beach fun, good girls and bad boys you’ll love to tie up and tie down. Previously published by Ellora’s Cave.
