At some point in the last….few years, 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’ve been more or less doing this update quarterly since then to keep readers up to date on what’s coming out, what to look for and what I’m working on.
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.

I’ve been busy the last nine months birthing a series. I got to announce the mass market deal with Kensington Books for a romantic suspense series last year. Or was it this year? Oh man, I’ve been working on it for a while! Anyway, I describe the Hot Rides series as the love-child between The Fast and The Furious and Burn Notice. This last week was the official, sparkling cover reveal for Drive, the first book, which is up for pre-order now and will be out in February 2015. Book two, Shift, is turned in and I’m anxiously awaiting edits. Book three has remained on my desk due to health issues, but should very soon be off to the editor to be made into a real book.
The Bayou Bound series had a strong couple of releases in late 2014 and early 2015! It kicked off last year with the Midnight Ink boxed set release, which has since been retired. Picture Her Bound has been out as a stand-alone novella. Duty Bound, Bound Memories and Bound & Tamed have been so much fun to write and release! I have several more titles in this series I want to do, but for now, Picture Her Bound is being re-published as part of the First Taste boxed set of first in series BDSM romances July 7th.
I realize that focusing on the Hot Rides series means it seems like I’m not working on getting new material out all that fast, but I am. I haven’t whispered a word of this, but I am working on an all new project to publish this fall. Just not announcing it yet! Stay tuned.
Last December I released two short stories in my Holiday Engagements series. These BDSM short stories are not for the weak of heart. Festive Seduction and Electric Engagement are really fun little stories. I will be working on the third and last installment, Decadent Wish, for release this coming December.
Last August Committed, my first book from Random House’s Loveswept line, was released. Unfortunately, the release of the follow up is delayed indefinitely.
If you’ve been around a while, you might remember that I was supposed to be part of the For the Love of a Soldier anthology. It’s been delayed, but never fear! It’s still coming.
Now, in previous updates I mentioned I got rights back on a few of my books from Ellora’s Cave. Well, two of those are now out again! Personal Adventures, re-titled Falling for His Best Friend and Collar Me in Paris have beautiful new covers and are being enjoyed by readers in their second life.
Here’s a cheat-list of the expected schedule, without my secret projects listed:
- First Taste – July 7, 2015
- Drive, Hot Rides 1 – February 23, 2016
- Shift, Hot Rides 2 – 2016
- Hot Rides 3 – 2016
