Thank you to all the readers!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADear Readers,

You might remember earlier this year when there was a reader survey going around to vote on the Golden Ankh, reader’s choice awards for Ellora’s Cave books. I was lucky enough to have a book on the ballot, The Harder He Falls, So Inked #2. I was up against some very talented ladies, so I mostly forgot about the whole thing until a couple of people texted and messaged me from the Ellora’s Cave RomantiCon event up in Ohio. I’d won the Golden Ankh for Contemporary! All because of you guys.

B The Harder He FallsThank you so much for voting for me. This was such a special book to win the award with, too. I’m humbled and honored to be awarded the trophy. It got here a few days ago and I’ve just stared at it, not really believing I won it–because of you guys. This year has really blown me away by the incredible support you guys have shown me. Here’s to another awesome year!

A woman who doesn’t have time for love…

A hot night full of hotel-destroying sex was all Kellie wanted from her client-turned-sex god. Between family and work, there isn’t room for love, just hot, sweaty lust. An arrangement for mutual gratification is exactly what Kellie wants, but every kiss, each mind-blowing orgasm twines her heart around a man she cannot have.

A man building a new life…

Quinton’s assumptions about the So Inked shop owner are turned on their head after one session under her tattoo machine. Kellie’s not the vandal he’s looking for, but she’s the woman he wants. In his bed, on the desk or under the stars, he’ll take her any way he can get her. But Quin has secrets and someone is out to destroy him. Someone who has their sights set on Kellie now.

A new look!

Dear Readers,

I have a confession to make.

I randomly decided to redesign the website.

Pretty sure if you’re reading this on the site, you’ve realized there’s a change. I’d read a few statements online, not always made to me, but about the site. It seems the entry graphic was too sexy. Now, I admit being a romance writer who leans toward the hotter side that my skew on what’s appropriate is sometimes lacking. So, if the site was offensive to you–I’m very sorry. It was never my intention. The last site redesign was done under duress I won’t go into. There were hackers and craziness–just more reason to back everything up!!

The new site has all the same functionality as the last one, it’s just got a little different polish. There are some features I’m going to roll out later, but for now–welcome to the new layout!!

Duty Bound has a new cover!

Duty Bound Cover vFinal 72dpiDear Readers,

I like to change things up.

My shoes. My make-up. And yes, my book covers.

Bound Memories, part of the Hot Ink anthology, was the first book to get the new treatment, but Duty Bound wasn’t far behind! I give you, the new, crisp nipple cover!

Isn’t he hot?

I’m very excited for the direction these covers are taking.

The changed files should be going live through out the day and by tomorrow, if you’ve already purchased the book and want the new cover, you should be able to get an updated copy through your preferred vendor of choice’s dashboard.

Haven’t purchased a copy?

Well now’s the time!

She’s the woman he sent away.

Lisette wouldn’t be back in New Orleans if she didn’t need protection—and who better to turn to than her ex-boyfriend turned Detective? She’s got a closet full of secrets that include a stalker ex and a kinky past. She vows to not dream about Mathieu…much. If only he were a Dominant, one who would not just flog her into bliss, but love her as well. A girl can dream, can’t she?

He was her first love.

Mathieu wants nothing to do with another damsel in distress, but he can’t say no when the little blonde woman walks back into his life with proof her ex is big trouble. He’ll give her a place to sleep, but nothing more. His heart is locked up tight. Except, Lisette uncovers his past in the BDSM world and she’s never backed down from a challenge. He can handle her, can’t he?

Lisette and Mathieu embark on a relationship that is strictly about sexual gratification, but evolves into more. When the bodies align, the hearts entwine. Except their rekindled flame is in danger. Lisette’s ex has found his prey, and he’s not afraid of taking a life.

Contains a BONUS short story, Picture Her Completed.

Bound Memories has a cover and a blurb!

Bound Memories Cover vFinalDear Readers,

My Hot Ink contribution has a cover!

Bound Memories is the first book to have the all new look for the Bayou Bound series. It’s hot, it’s sexy and I’m sort of in love with that little rope twist. Plus, look at those tattoos!

That’s hot. :D

Bound Memories will be out in November as part of the Hot Ink anthology. Following that, it will be released as a stand alone in 2015. I believe the intent is also to have it in paperback.

Kit Carson is back in his home town to do more than promote his latest reality TV win on Tattoo King. He’s determined to make things right with his estranged family and win over the woman who kinked up his world ten years ago. No one has ever captured his heart like his fellow tattoo apprentice. He’s ready for just about anything—except finding out she hasn’t touched a tattoo machine in years.

Renee LeBlanc is taken by surprise when her old love walks back into her life. She’s no longer the insecure girl who pushed him away. Renee wants a BDSM-filled fling to work him out of her system. At least that’s what she tells herself. Deep down, she knows Kit will leave to follow his dreams and tattoo in big cities, while she remains the bedrock of her family.

As Kit and Renee fall for each other all over again, they embark on a journey, healing the past and carving out new future that just might be the right fit for two.

When to expect the next book?

B Hot Ink CoverDear Readers,

Last year 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? The plan is for this to be 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.

** Everything here is subject to change at the whim of publishers, me, the wind or other circumstances. **

B Taming the Alpha Book CoverThe Bayou Bound series is going strong! It kicked off last year with the Midnight Ink boxed set release. Picture Her Bound has been out as a stand-alone novella, which is newly out in print. Duty Bound out in ebook and print. This fall, my writer’s community put out a big anthology for charity titled Love Is… and it has a short story called Picture Her Loved. You guessed it. It’s another installment in the Jacques and Odalia romance. I only have one more short planned for them, but that won’t happen for a while. The next books to look forward to this year are the Hot Ink anthology from Fated Desires, which will have a long novella/short novel titled Bound Memories. This one departs from New Orleans and takes us to Baton Rouge for a rekindled lovers story. Then, in December I’ll have another novella out in the Taming the Alpha boxed set called Bound & Tamed, about two intellectual bad-asses. Both of these sets have some fantastic authors participating. I’m super excited about this! Next year, look for more news about a full-length novel titled Bound by Her. This will feature Remy, who had a brief appearance in Duty Bound and Bound Memories. I think readers will really like him.

RomanceIn August my first book from Random House’s Loveswept line released. Committed is part of my Drug of Desire series. It’s a BDSM-meets-suspense book that I am very excited about. Recently, I got to announce that Loveswept did, in fact, contract another book in that series called Proposition. It is set to be out in the spring of 2015, and is currently up for pre-order.

I just got to announce a new, mass market deal with Kensington Books for a romantic suspense series that I describe as the love-child between The Fast and The Furious and Burn Notice. I’m deep into the first book now, but that’s not set to release until late 2015 or 2016.

Also, I’ll be part of the For the Love of a Soldier anthology coming out from Cleis Press this December.

Now for the hard part of this post.

B For The Love of a SoldierMany people are aware of the increasing issues one of my publishers is having. Due to uncertainty, I can no longer give readers an estimate on when to expect books in the So Inked or Good Guys Wear Black series. It pains me to say this, but it’s the facts. Things could very well even out and be back on track in a few months, or not. I’m as in the dark about the future as anyone. My deepest apologies to the readers looking forward to those remaining three books. When I know something, I’ll update the website, but until then I’m not going to speculate.

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.

Here’s a cheat-list of the expected schedule, including the rest of this year’s releases:

  • Hot Ink anthology! Contains Bound Memories – November 2014
  • Taming the Alpha boxed set, contains Bound & Tamed novella – December 2014
  • For the Love of a Soldier – December 2014
  • Bound by Her, Bayou Bound – 2015
  • Drug of Desire: Proposition – Spring 2015
  • Drive – Late 2015/2016
