If you’re not out braving the crowds for Black Friday deals, maybe you’re surfing the web for them. I know I’ve done a lot of online shopping lately. I may avoid the mall today, but I think I might drive by WalMart to see how busy it is. If it’s not too bad, my brother told me about a laptop deal… well… I digress. If you’re on Amazon, you might just want to pop some upcoming books into your cart so you’ll get them the day they come out. Here are some suggestions:
Love and magic lie at the heart of this storm… as well as a whole lot of danger.
Brotherhood of Blood, Book 7
When Major Jesse Moore, brother to the Wyoming Pack Alpha, is sent to Iowa to check on his sister-in-law’s cousin, knocking politely isn’t an option. Sounds of a struggle send him storming into her kitchen — where he finds anything but a damsel in distress. The tiny human woman knows how to handle herself in a fight, and all Jesse’s senses shout she’s his mate.
Exotic-animal vet, Maria Garibaldi has never trusted the magic her aunt and grandmother claim is her birthright. She’s always known about the Others, but she had no idea she was also part of their world. When Maria sets out with Jesse to find the parents of a young grizzly shifter she found and treated, she learns the meaning of temptation in the form of the ex-Special Forces soldier.
As passion flares, the trail leads them toward the eye of a massive storm… where an unspeakable evil awaits the right moment to destroy the good in the magical world.
Warning: Things get explicit when a werewolf wants his mate and he doesn’t care where they are. Outdoors, indoors, wherever and whenever — never get between a wolf and his woman.
And on January 21st, Lexi Blake has another awesome book coming out – STEAL THE MOON. Here’s a bit about it:
When an ancient artifact enslaves every werewolf on earth, humanity’s only hope is a thief…
Zoey Donovan should be happy. Her love life couldn’t be better, her demonic nemesis is on the run, business is booming, and no one has tried to kill her in seven whole months. But without her best friend to share it with, it all seems a little hollow. Neil, her fabulous furry wingman, is missing and two grumpy werewolf bodyguards have taken his place.
Undaunted by her humorless babysitters, she intends to track Neil down even if it means risking her newfound romantic bliss. But someone else has plans for Zoey, and they don’t intend to play nice. Lucas Halfer is desperate for revenge, and he knows just how to get it.
An ancient Roman legend tells of an artifact that will grant its possessor the power to control all wolves. No one, including Daniel and Dev, believes the Strong Arm of Remus is real but Zoey thinks Halfer might have already located it. With every werewolf pack in North America gathering in Colorado, the demon could enslave an unstoppable army.
To save the day, and possibly the world, Zoey will have to find a way to steal the Strong Arm of Remus from one of the most powerful demons in existence. Then again, impossible is kind of her specialty.

Then, on February 18th, Lexi Blake has a new release – DUNGEON ROYALE - and hoo-boy! It sounds like a hot one! Here’s some info on that book…
An agent broken
MI6 agent Damon Knight prided himself on always being in control. His missions were executed with cold, calculating precision. His club, The Garden, was run with an equally ordered and detached decadence. But his perfect world was shattered by one bullet, fired from the gun of his former partner. That betrayal almost cost him his life and ruined his career. His handlers want him to retire, threatening to revoke his license to kill if he doesn’t drop his obsession with a shadowy organization called The Collective. To earn their trust, he has to prove himself on a unique assignment with an equally unusual partner.
A woman tempted
Penelope Cash has spent her whole life wanting more. More passion. More adventure. But duty has forced her to live a quiet life. Her only excitement is watching the agents of MI6 as they save England and the world. Despite her training, she’s only an analyst. The closest she is allowed to danger and intrigue is in her dreams, which are often filled with one Damon Knight. But everything changes when the woman assigned to pose as Damon’s submissive on his latest mission is incapacitated. Penny is suddenly faced with a decision. Stay in her safe little world or risk her life, and her heart, for Queen and country.
An enemy revealed
With the McKay-Taggart team at their side, Damon and Penny hunt an international terrorist across the great cities of Northern Europe. Playing the part of her Master, Damon begins to learn that under Penny’s mousy exterior is a passionate submissive, one who just might lay claim to his cold heart. But when Damon’s true enemy is brought out of the shadows, it might be Penny who pays the ultimate price.
A Masters and Mercenaries Novel

And finally, on March 11th, the last book in my Resonance Mates series comes out – HARRY’S SACRIFICE. It wraps up the EPPIE Award winning series with a bang I hope you will enjoy! Here’s more about that one…
Embracing the unexpected can lead to all sorts of adventures.
Resonance Mates, Book 5
The prophesied time has arrived and Harry – born of an alien mother and a human father – must journey to the top of the world to unlock a mysterious ship found trapped in an icy crevasse. A ship only someone of Harry’s bloodline can open.
Roshin, a young Alvian scribe, is sent to record events as they unfold. Beneath her remote, icy beauty, Harry feels an unwanted Hum of attraction. He has always dreamed of a warm, giving relationship with a human. Not a cold, emotionless Alvian.
Then there’s Cormac, an Alvian officer sent to head the expedition. When all three are trapped inside the vessel, Harry is confronted with an unexpected dilemma – cling to his dream of a human bond, or answer the call of fate and form a lifelong alliance with not just one, but two aliens.
Warning: Harry’s all grown up and ready for action – with not one but two Alvians. Theirs could be a permanent menage relationship that will resonate in your heart long after the last page is turned.

Favorite Food: PIZZA!!!
Favorite Movie: StarGate
Favorite Actor: At the moment, it’s Karl Urban. Awesome talent! And cute too!
Favorite Song: Hmm… I think I’d have to go with Vissi d’Arte from Puccini’s Tosca. I love the opening lines: “Vissi d’art, vissi d’amore” “I lived for art, I lived for love.” The rest of it is heartbreaking and cathartic to sing. Back in the days when I studied and performed opera, this was one of my favorites. Along with Mimi’s arias from La Boheme and Liu’s arias from Puccini’s last opera, Turandot. I loved singing those roles best.

Favorite Book: Jane Eyre. I went to the British Library and got to see the original manuscript, open to “Reader, I married him.” I died. The Magna Carta was there too or something. Whatever.

Favorite Movie: Princess Bride. It’s not a coincidence that I call my husband Farm Boy.
Favorite Actor: I’ve never really thought about it.
Favorite Song: I want to be sophisticated and say something from an opera, but right now it’s Rambling Man by Laura Marling.
Favorite Person: I was going to say my husband but he just rubbed my back where I’m sunburned and right now I want to punch him in the face, so I’ll say my mom.
Favorite TV Show: New Girl. It’s uncomfortably close to home in a lot of ways.
Favorite Chocolate: Plain Hershey’s bars. LOVE. The rest of the world can shut their mouths about Cadburys. IT’S NOT THAT GOOD! (My sister in law is bringing chocolate from Ireland all the way to Thailand, by way of Cambodia, because my husband is pouty about American chocolate.)
Favorite Sex position: I don’t think I’ve ever actually had sex where we stuck to one position the whole time. If you’re rocking less then three per session you’re being lazy. Here are some winning combos: Oral to doggie to missionary or oral to standing beside the bed to floor to missionary.
Favorite Holiday Destination: Right now? Phuket, Thailand. Despite my sunburn it’s freaking GORGEOUS.
Favorite Romantic Date: Going to a concert and then drinks.
Favorite Book Hero: Mr. Rochester—for all of time.
Favorite Book Cover: Undone Dom. It’s cute and flirty, and led many unsuspecting people to purchase that book not realizing the hardcore BDSM inside. Oops.
Favorite Treat: Mango. Okay, that’s probably because I’m in Thailand and we’re each eating three mangos a day, but still.
So, dear readers, now that you know what we are thankful for, want to tell us what you are thankful for?
WISHING ALL OUR AMERICAN READERS A HAPPY AND HEALTHY THANKSGIVING
Well, Lexi and I were going to post that Jean-Claude Van Damme Epic Split video here along with some of the hilarious spoofs of it, but I can’t figure out how to embed video in this !@##$@! blog. *sigh* So instead, here are some other things to make you smile…
Believe it or not, all these pics were on my desktop. See, when I see something that tickles my funny bone, I tend to snag it and save it in a folder on my desktop. This is the first time it’s come in handy!
So you’re getting a little peek at my strange sense of humor. Hope you enjoy it.
And this is something I fear with each passing birthday. I don’t have a cat yet, but I find myself visiting the I Can Haz Cheezburger site more and more often… I think it’s a bad sign. It’s very possible there’s a crazy cat lady in my future. I just hope it’s not me!!!
And this is how many of us Americans will feel tomorrow after over-indulging in Thanksgiving sweets and treats. Not to mention turkey, cranberries, gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and all the pies! Ack! Diet? What diet?
Of course, then there’s the holiday booze. I hear Mari Carr has a cat now. Maybe this is her kittie, Sheldon, after a party at Mari’s house? Very possible. I think he’s the right color, though I don’t think Sheldon has socks. It might be Sheldon’s no account tomcat daddy. Word on the street is he knocked up Sheldon’s mom and then split. Didn’t even stick around to pay kitten support.
And then there are our friends, the alternative lifestyle kitties. I put this one up there for all my friends who like to read/write m/m, including more than a few of our IH friends. He looks so sad. I wish there was a way to cheer him up and let him know that he does look faboo!
Lexi told me she was up to her eyeballs in baking stuff, so this one is for her. Tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast is different for everybody. This year, I was supposed to get together with friends, but with the storm on the East Coast, I’m not sure I’ll be able to get there. So it might be a quiet day at home. Maybe I’ll make some pancakes for breakfast like this kitty’s owner…
And lastly, this pic is one of my old favorites. It’s kinda like me. I try to sound all badass with my slogan about The D’Arc Side, but I’m really sort of cute and fuzzy like this little guy. Nobody seems to take me seriously!
Well, that’s a little traipse through my silly sense of humor. Hope you enjoyed it and I hope everybody has a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Bianca and I were talking about winter. She’s up in New York, so I’ll admit she has it worse than me in Texas. With the whole country in the grips of a cold front, we consider it our duty to help you warm up! How better than with some hot excerpts from our works in progress! Here’s mine. It’s from Dungeon Royale, coming out February 18th!

A little flare of panic hit his system. Had he been too hard on her? He turned her over, praying she wasn’t crying. He couldn’t handle it if she cried because he’d been too rough.
Her face was flushed, her eyes soft. “Damon?”
She wasn’t afraid of him. Relief rushed through him. “Yes, love?”
“I think I’m a freak.” A smile flashed on her face.
He laughed long and hard because he hadn’t expected that. That summed her up. Unexpected. “Yes, you are. Lucky for you. Being a freak is so much more fun. Do you understand what I want?”
“You want me to be still. You want me to submit.”
Such a smart girl. “Yes. I’ll tie you down if I have to. Don’t think I can’t do it. The bed was custom built. You can’t see it right now, but there’s a whole system under the mattress built for naughty little subs who can’t hold still. Once I’ve got you tied down by your arms and legs, I’ll be able to do anything I want. I’ll be able to torture your little pussy.” He ran a hand over her mound, feeling how wet she already was. “I’ll keep you on edge all day long. You’ll be crying and begging for me to let you come.”
“I’m quite there already, Damon.”
“Not yet, you aren’t. You’ve just had a little taste. He didn’t make you come.”
She shook her head. “No. Never.”
“I make you come. I’m the man who makes you come. Say it.”
“You make me come, Damon. Only you.”
He wasn’t sure he liked the raging jealousy that went through him every time he thought about that skinny accountant putting his hands on Penelope. He had the deepest instinct to obliterate the man. Had Peter told her he loved her? Had he offered the life she deserved? It didn’t matter because he hadn’t been man enough to keep her. It had been easy to find that story. Peter saved his e-mails. He’d talked about how Penelope had gotten so involved in her mother’s care that she hadn’t found time for him. Stupid boy. He should have taken over. She’d been drowning and no one had taken over. No one had walked in and made life easy for her. Her siblings had visited but no one had taken control. He would have moved them both in here and hired a nurse twenty-four seven, costs be damned. He would have made sure Penelope never forgot that she was a woman and not just a caretaker. He would have had her in bed every night screaming out her pleasure, the tension dissolving away in pulse-pounding sex.
He knew what she needed, and he wasn’t going to make the same mistakes. He might not be able to offer her love, but he damn sure could take care of her.
Love was for idiots who didn’t know what the world was really like. What he was offering her was something far more real. A partnership.
“Only me.” He parted the petals of her sex. The need to take her rode him hard. His cock was right there. He was hard and she was wet. It would be so simple, but he had a point to prove.
He would control her through sex, not the other way around. He was the Dom. He was the senior partner.
And he’d promised her a good tongue lashing. He could spend the entire morning eating her pussy. Then he would feed her. He could start her training. He would make her sit on his lap and feed her himself, and then he would take her to the dungeon and start getting her used to impact play.
He would plug her gorgeous arse because he was going to fuck her there. Eventually. But this morning it was all about the pussy. It was all about getting deep inside Penelope. It was all about making the connection that would bind her to him.
Fuck. It was all about coming. It was all about spending himself hard inside her. His dick was pulsing, dying. All he needed to do was thrust up and he would be content.
He placed his head against her forehead. It was such a temptation to just fuck up into her.
But she was so inexperienced. He had to stop.
He let his head fall to her forehead, rubbing them against one another. He was close to her. Closer than he’d ever been to a woman. Fuck. She did it for him. He didn’t really understand why, but she did it. She called to him. Everything about Penelope Cash pulled him in. He had to take care of her, had to protect her. Even from himself because the idea of spending his come inside her was so fucking tempting. He wanted to bind her to him so she wouldn’t ever leave him.
Selfish. He was greedy and selfish and he wanted to be more to her.
“Love, what about birth control?” He didn’t want to have to stop to ask her about it later.
“I’m on birth control pills. I have been on them for years. I guess I was hopeful.”
Fuck. He didn’t have to wear a condom. “Love, you got my medical reports.”
She frowned a little. “Well, I read the ones you didn’t bury.” She huffed out a little laugh. “Damon, I know you’re clean. Will you please make love to me?”
So polite and he didn’t want polite from her. “Ask me to fuck you, Penelope.”
He didn’t want to lie to her. He didn’t make love. He didn’t even believe in it as a concept. It was something people needed to mask their primal needs for sex and conquest and someone to sleep next to at night.
Penelope’s eyes widened and a sexy little gasp came from those lips of hers. “Will you fuck me, Damon?”
“With pleasure, love.” Bur first things came first. He kissed his way down her body, stopping to nip at her breasts and suck each one hard into his mouth. She was primed. She could handle a little more now. And god knew he wanted to give her more. “Spread your legs wider.”

Holy CRAP! Not sure how I’m going to follow that! Bianca here, with an excerpt from my upcoming release – Wolf Quest. It’ll be out on December 10th, but you can pre-order it now from Amazon – Barnes & Noble – Samhain – and wherever ebooks are sold.
Excerpt from Wolf Quest by Bianca D’Arc
“We won’t be taking your car. It’s too slow and too easy to trace. I have a rented four-by-four waiting in the woods. We can check your guests as we make our way to the SUV.” She looked like she wanted to argue, but he pushed the sandwich at her. “Eat. You’ll need the fuel.”
She cracked a smile and picked up the sandwich. It looked huge in her delicate hands. “Now you sound like my nona. She’s always telling me I’m too skinny. She refuses to believe I really need to lose about thirty pounds.”
Jesse paused and let his gaze run over her. He knew his tongue was practically hanging out of his mouth, but he couldn’t help himself. “As far as I’m concerned, you’re perfect, Doc.” He heard the growl escape his throat and walked his gaze up her luscious body to meet her gaze. She seemed not only shocked but…aroused?
He sniffed the air as he stepped closer to her. Oh, yeah. She was definitely aroused. Fuck. She smelled so damn good.
He was instantly hard and ready to go. He wanted her bad. His wolf wanted to sink his teeth – and his cock – into her and fuck her senseless. He wanted to hear her scream his name as she came around him, taking him with her to the moon.
He put his arms around her and tugged her close his body. He had enough presence of mind to take the sandwich out of her hands and place it back on the table behind her.
Then the beast was in control. It pulled her against him with a single hard tug that startled her. She gasped when her soft body met his hardness. Her eyes widened as she gazed up into his eyes. Caught. He was hers.
Jesse’s head dipped and he captured her lips with his. The kiss started savage and then…morphed. It changed into something much more serious than the blind lust that had ridden him to this point.
He hadn’t meant to touch her, but he hadn’t been able to help himself. The scent of her arousal was more than he could take. He had to taste her, sample her sweetness, claim it for himself, even if just for this moment out of time.
She tangled her hands in the short hair at the base of his neck. Her body strained against him as she responded. She wasn’t just a recipient of his kiss, she was a full participant in the lust that ignited from the kiss into a conflagration neither of them could deny or control.
Jesse backed her against the table, lifting her until she sat on the very edge. He nudged her legs apart with his hips, taking his place between them as their mouths continued to consume each other, driving the fire that had flared between them higher.
Jesse dragged his lips from hers and began nibbling his way down her throat, pausing in the delicately scented place in the crook of her neck, nosing under her soft brown hair. She smelled so damn good. Like ambrosia. Like the finest wine. Delicious.
He kept moving lower, shaping her ribs one by one with his fingers, then moving higher, supporting her generous breasts. She was built like a woman with a capital W.
Just the way he liked his women. Not scrawny or overly muscular, but luscious and stacked with generous hips and an ass he could sink his teeth into. Hot damn.
She wasn’t stopping him as his nose found its way down into the V of her blouse and he worked his hands up over her bra to cup her and mold her. Satisfaction growled through him when her nipples bloomed against the palms of his hands. He pinched gently and learning her shape.
And a fine shape it was, indeed. He couldn’t wait. The beast wanted to taste her skin. He pulled on the cotton of her shirt, ripping it with a single tug. Buttons bounced off his chest, the small projectiles making little zaps against his T-shirt. He didn’t feel it. The only thing that really registered was the white lace of her bra. Her hard nipples poked outward, their darker color clear against the translucent lace. He wanted to howl in approval.
Her hands still tangled in his hair, silent encouragement for him to go farther. He wasn’t about to argue. He pulled down the lace cups until her luscious tits popped free with a happy bounce. He almost grinned, but the desire to lick her won out.
