Back in October I made a post about, When to expect the next book? It was in answer to a reader’s question wanting to know when to expect the next book in one series, while being unaware of another series. It was a good conversation and the resulting blog was very useful for not only readers, but myself! So I figured–why not do another one? I think I’m going to attempt to make this a quarterly thing to update readers on what is coming out and stuff to be on the look-out for.
These are estimations only, not promised release dates unless otherwise stated. Or, ya know, when I list a date. I’ll do this by series, then do a recap at the bottom.

The So Inked books are by far the ones that get this question the most. Under His Skin and The Harder He Falls are currently available everywhere ebooks are sold. The third book, His Marriage Bargain, is in the heavy-duty stage of edits. This means–the release date is soon to be set! Yes! Very soon we will be diving back into the luscious world of the So Inked girls and their special brand of sexy fun. Now, the last two books in the series, More Than He Can Handle and His Little Fighter have been shuffled around as far as due dates. I will not speculate on a release date for those, except to say that they might be 2015 books.
The Good Guys Wear Black series is hot and underway! Hot Tango released in January, which was fantastic. The second book, Line of Duty, is on deck for edits, so I would expect a fall to winter release of this year for that book. The final book in the trilogy will be a 2015 release, which kind of stinks because it’s going to be so super awesome. I’ve really enjoyed writing these. Both Hot Tango and Line of Duty have tugged on the heart strings.
The Bayou Bound books kicked off in November with the Midnight Ink boxed set release. Picture Her Bound is out as a stand-alone novella. Duty Bound is in edits and I hope to release this full length novel at the end of May. For those who have read Picture Her Bound, this book follows Mathieu, Odalia’s former patrol partner. I have plans to do a full series in this “world”. Also! As bonus content, there will be a Jacques and Odalia short story in Duty Bound. I’m heading into the plotting stages for the third book in the series, and I couldn’t be more excited!
Possibly the only shift to my current release schedule is the book I will have out with Random House’s Loveswept line, Committed. This is currently a single title, BDSM-meets-suspense book that I am very excited about. The origional release date was July, but it’s being moved back to August. It is currently up for pre-order. You do not want to miss this book! Especially if you are a fan of the Bayou Bound series. This will incorporate many of the same elements of story seen there.
I’m currently working on a super, duper seekrit project that if all goes well, will release in the newly opened July slot. I’m keeping my lips sealed until things are a little better planned, but this is going to be a lot of fun.
That’s everything I can tell you about. There’s always stuff in the background or in the works that I can’t talk about, but hopefully soon. Ya know, if everything pans out.
Here’s a cheat-list of the expected schedule, including the rest of this year’s releases:
- Duty Bound (Bayou Bound #2) – May 2014
- His Marriage Bargain (So Inked #3) – May/June 2014
- Committed (Drug of Desire) – August 2014
- Love Is… – August 2014
- Line of Duty (Good Guys Wear Back #2) – Summer/Fall 2014
- More Than He Can Handle (So Inked #4) – 2015
- Shotgun Wedding (Good Guys Wear Black #3) – 2015
- His Little Fighter (So Inked #5) – 2016
And that’s enough to make me want to go back to bed!!!!
