What to read AFTER Fifty Shades of Gray?

I’m so happy to be included in this beautiful set!

So it just tickles me to be included in a set called “What to Read After Fifty Shades of Gray” featuring “Egyptian Voyage” by moi.

Seeker’s Solace – Vampire Council of Ethics Book Four

Pre-Order: Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Samhain Publishing
Coming September 24, 2013
from Samhain Publishing
 Seeker's Solace

“I run a successful security firm, basically a bodyguard to some of the escorts that cater to the high-rolling vamps in our society.”

“Whores?”

Jovon’s gaze rolled toward the ceiling. Why were vamps, the most sexual beings on earth, so narrow-minded in this area? She sighed, and then spoke slowly as if teaching a kindergartner. “No sex happens. That’s why I’m there. Basically, the escorts cater to men and women who haven’t had or made time for relationships but enjoy companionship. Besides, why show up at a high-dollar charity event alone when you can take runway-model material instead?”

“So here you are, a fashion doll’s muscle, headed into the investigation from hell. And single. I wonder…”

“Wonder what?”

“If you can handle it, Jovon.”

“Handle what? The mission?”

“Handle me.” He licked his lips as he watched her closely. “If you let me, I’ll rock your world.”

JAYE LYNNE DAVIES

Author Bio: Jae Lynne Davies is an author, wife, and mother who wishes there were more hours in a day to balance all three and a full-time job. But whenever she finds a spare moment (usually in the late hours of the night when her husband and two young children are visiting the land of dreams), you’ll find her sitting in front of her laptop typing the next chapter!

Type of Books: Striving to share her passion of the written word, Jae Lynne pens stories of conflict and believable, but forbidden relationships between extraordinary characters. In fact, the more complex, the better, which might explain her desire to create erotically-charged paranormal tales of romance and urban fantasy that she hopes leaves readers thirsting for more.

REBECCA ZANETTI

She writes the Dark Protector vampire series, the Maverick Montana cowboy series, and the Sin Brothers romantic-suspense series.

MK MANCOS

Author Bio: Nightmares as a child forced MK Mancos to begin telling herself stories before going to sleep. Thus began the lifelong love of a good pulse-pounding tale and lives not her own. MK resides in New Jersey with her wonderful husband, Dave, and dog, Lily.

Her mind may be gone, but steam there is a-plenty!

Type of Books: TJ is an award-winning author of paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi and urban fantasy romance. No matter the genre TJ is penning, her favorite thing to do is build worlds. To take you somewhere extraordinary. To transport you to a place where you can close your eyes and slip into your fantasy…

MARIANNE MOREA

Author Bio: Marianne Morea is a New Yorker, and her stories embody the grit and complexity of the city that never sleeps. An avid traveler, she uses experiences from around the world in all her books. Her love affair with the paranormal is born of fantasies, transporting her into a world of what if?

Type of Books: Dark Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Suspense are the hallmarks of Marianne Morea’s writing style. Stories filled with underworld violence and the desire to transcend a broken soul, readers are thrust into a world where the city never sleeps because the nightmares are real.

MELISSA SCHROEDER

In addition to military romance, Heather writes a wide variety of romance from paranormal historical western romance to contemporary romance and romantic suspense. She loves characters and the stories they have to tell. As a child, Heather skipped picture books and enjoyed the Harlequin romance novels by Penny Jordan and Nora Roberts that her grandmother read to her. Heather believes that laughter is as important to life as breathing and that the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus are very real. In the meanwhile, she is hard at work on her next novel.

Type of Books: Heather writes paranormal romance, contemporary romance, military romance, and westerns with a paranormal twist. Her focus is on characters and the emotions that drive them to love, hate, live life and survive – romance with an edge.

ANN JACOBS

Author Bio: Seventeen years and over a hundred books later, I’m still a quiet wife, mom and grandma who dotes on kids, cats and a growing collection of orchids that sometimes rewards me with an exotically beautiful blossom. One might say I’ve explored my wild life vicariously through the people in my stories. Although I’ve won several prestigious awards over the years, the compliments that mean most to me are those that come from readers who’ve been touched deeply by my stories.

Type of Books: I write romances, from “vanilla” erotics to kinky BDSM,  in settings both familiar and fancifully exotic. All of my books have the proverbial “happily ever after” in common, though my lusty heroes and heroines follow many different and rocky roads to that happy, committed relationship.

C.J. ELLISSON

Author Bio: USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, C.J. Ellisson, lives in northern VA with her supportive husband, two children who listen at their whim, two dogs that worship her, a cat she’s allergic to, and two lizards she wishes lived somewhere else.

Type of Books: C.J. spins tales containing adventure, intrigue, action, a little bit of mystery, and a whole lot of steam. She firmly believes hot monogamy exists and all her books, whether erotica, urban fantasy, or contemporary erotic romance, reinforce her views on the magic two people can share.

KRISTEN PAINTER

Author Bio: Kristen Painter likes to balance her obsession with shoes and cats by making the lives of her characters miserable and surprising her readers with interesting twists. She currently writes award-winning urban fantasy for Orbit Books.

Type of Books: Gothic urban fantasy featuring vampires, courtesans, shifters and fae.

Snippet Saturday – Her man

Blog-Header-option2

When a woman gets the first glimpse of her guy, sometimes she’s taken aback and sometimes she’s just…not. Then again, maybe she’s both? You know, something about him strikes her, but she doesn’t necessarily WANT it to.

Meet Jovon Dawson-Li, Seeker for the Vampire Council of Ethics…and she’s just met her match twice over. After you see what Jovon is up to, visit all the other Snippet Saturday authors via the links at the bottom of the post.

Unedited Excerpt from
Seeker’s Solace, Vampire Council of Ethics Book Four

Coming September 2013 from Samhain Publishing

A voice caught her attention. It was a prime making his way around the room. He was a marvelous block of a man with a wild and strange energy about him. Even in her wiped-out, tired-to-the-bone state her brain still managed to pick him out of the bristling crowd.

The ropey muscle of his forearm was revealed by a three-quarter-sleeved silk mock turtleneck. Jovon’s gaze was pinned on that arm, watching the long, scarred fingers extend. She wondered what he did for a living that caused him to get scars like that, considering it was highly unusual for their kind to sustain any kind of lasting injury unless it was quite serious.

And look at that skin, she thought. Pale as fresh milk, yet it still held a warmth that made her want to dip her cookie in it.

Girlfriend, that’s just nasty. What’s wrong with you?

Snippet Saturday – A Little Tenderness…heh

This week’s Snippet Saturday theme is a bit deceptive. At first glance I thought, “Awwww, this is going to be a mushy post!” But after taking a closer look, the theme is actually *wait for it…* MAKING OUT!

But the challenge is finding a make-out scene that stops short of HAWT sex. Hmmmm… I’ve got an idea! How about a scene where the hero is making out with the heroine, but it’s all in her head. Literally.

Enjoy this Snippet of Hatsept Heat, Vampire Council of Ethics Book Three, then visit the other Snippet Saturday authors via the links at the bottom of the post. Happy Weekend!

When he dipped his head, she instinctively eased away, then wished her sense of propriety had stayed home.

“What’s wrong?” Kenoe whispered.

“We’re in public,” Shinju hissed through clenched teeth.

“What does that have to do with anything?”

“It’s just that, well, we don’t touch or neck in public. It’s a cultural thing.” She felt the features of her face morph into something between mortified and hungry. Must be because she really wanted to let her tongue take the same path across his mouth his had only seconds ago. God, she could have kicked herself for falling back on old behavior.

While her African-American grandmother encouraged Shinju to live her life as she chose, her grandma on her father’s side had always frowned on Shinju’s independent nature. The woman insisted on teaching her and her cousins proper public etiquette. Unfortunately those childhood lessons, which included a huge dose of “good girls don’t”, seemed to stick just now.

“And if we were visiting your relatives in the States, would there be any issues with PDA?” he asked, sweeping her back into the crowd. The bodies were thick on this particular patch of dance floor.

“PDA? You mean public displays of affection? Of course not. But it’s just not done here.” Which was one of the reasons Shinju always looked forward to her yearly summer trips to visit her stateside cousins. Once her feet hit the city streets of Atlanta, all bets were off. She didn’t sleep around, but she certainly did her share of ass shaking in the clubs, along with the occasional kiss or two from whatever beau her cousins set her up with for the duration of the trip. As a result she’d gathered quite a few pen pals over the years.

In fact she was due to meet up with her kin in a couple of weeks. Strangely enough, the expected thrill of a bit of freedom from the strictures of Japanese life didn’t appeal. It meant leaving Kenoe behind.

“So it’s a Japanese thing?” he asked, leaning in close. God, he smelled good. Like musk, hot sex and dangerous man.

“Duh.” She sniffed, batting playfully at the hands trying to pinch her ass.

“Fine, as long as it’s not an ‘I-really-don’t-want-to-be-seen-with-Kenoe’ thing.”

“Oh don’t get your boxers in a twist. It’s nothing personal.”

“We’ll see. Later.”

“Oh yeah? What’s going to happen later?”

“Well, my beautiful Shinju, I love that you’re a lady when on the street.” He lightly ran a single finger down her cheek, leaving a path in the sweat. It sent a shiver clear to her baby toes. “But I want a freak in my bed.”

“And who says I’ll end up in your bed?”

Snippet Saturday – Crawlin’ Back To You…


I don’t think this week’s theme needs any intro at all, do you **heh**? Meet Delaine and Justin from “On The Prowl”. This book was originally published as my debut novel, “Primed to Pounce” and received 4 STARS **woooot!** from Romantic Times Book Reviews.

In this Snippet, Delaine is pretty sure she caught Justin messing around with her best friend. But looks can be deceiving. And since Delaine is running, Justin does what any good alpha does…he chases her.

Delaine Jeris is on a mission. As top investigator for the Aegis Group, she must use her unique gifts-including her own personal mountain lion spirit guide-to catch a mad scientist with kinky delusions.

Justin Cooley was not part of the plan.

Justin has his own job to do, but falling for the beautiful woman sneaking around the Astin Pharmaceutical and Biotech facility wasn’t in his brief. How can he trust his instincts, trust her, when he knows that more than his mission could be compromised if he’s wrong?

Delaine has had her heart broken before. When all their secrets are revealed, she’ll have to decide whether she’s truly found her mate…or allowed herself to fall straight into enemy hands.

Review: “Move over, Secret Agent Man, Michaels’ heroine, Delaine, is a spy queen. Her moves on the sheets and off make this a page-turner.” -Romantic Times BOOKReviews

Kindle | Nook | Smashwords | iTunes

*Stop running, Suta. Embrace our mate. He comes.*

‘Yeah, whatever.’ Delaine’s words were flat and uncaring, and in truth, she hadn’t really been listening to what Sapa was saying to her along the bond.

The sleek mountain cat rolled her eyes and stalked away to a quiet corner of Delaine’s mind. Before she retreated, Delaine felt her frustration. Well, guess she could forget about meditating now. All she could think about was Justin. Justin’s lips. Justin’s hands on her body. Justin treating her like the queen he proclaimed her to be. Cooking for her. Taking her on road trips.

Justin sleeping with her best friend. Rather, a chick that was supposed to be her friend.
