This project has been in the works for months and it finally hit the retail sites today. Tales of the Were: Rocky remains one of my most popular books and now it’s my very first book to be put into audio. Here’s a bit about it and where you can get it:
On the run from her husband’s killers, there is only one man who can help her now… her Rock.
Maggie is on the run from those who killed her husband nine months ago. She knows the only one who can help her is Rocco, a grizzly shifter she knew in her youth. She arrives on his doorstep in labor with twins. Magical, shapeshifting, bear cub twins destined to lead the next generation of werecreatures in North America.
Rocky is devastated by the news of his Clan brother’s death, but he cannot deny the attraction that has never waned for the small human woman who stole his heart a long time ago. Rocky absented himself from her life when she chose to marry his childhood friend, but the years haven’t changed the way he feels for her.
And now there are two young lives to protect. Rocky will do everything in his power to end the threat to the small family and claim them for himself. He knows he is the perfect Alpha to teach the cubs as they grow into their power… if their mother will let him love her as he has always longed to do.

First, let me say how happy I am that my turn has rolled around again to be blog mom on International Heat. I hope you’re all having a lovely Sunday!
You may have noticed that a bunch of new books have been coming out lately from many of the writers who are part of International Heat. Mari Carr, in particular, has been re-issuing quite a few of her books with new looks for 2014, and we’ve all been keeping our resident artist, Valerie Tibbs, quite busy with projects for our new book covers. Here’s one she just did for me. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Now that the new school year has started here in the U.S., things are starting to move again. I think a lot of us took the summer off – or at least, slowed down a bit. I know I did! I didn’t really intend to do so, but it just sort of happened. I think I’d pushed so hard to have a lot of new books out earlier in the year, that I sort of burnt myself out a bit. I needed a little time off – like a kid on summer vacation from school – to regroup and go on a bit of a vacation.
I managed to do two trips this summer, to two conventions. (Here’s the part where I get to tell you all what I did on my summer vacation! LOL) First, in July, I went to my first-ever RWA national convention in San Antonio, Texas. RWA stands for “Romance Writers of America” and is the big organization for romance writers of all kinds. It was quite an eye-opener to go to this convention, and that’s about all I can say because truly, I was overwhelmed.
I had a week home to recover before heading out again to the Authors After Dark convention, held this year in Charlotte, North Carolina. (Part of Jacob’s Ladder is set in the mountains of North Carolina. Coincidence?) AAD is a fantastic gathering of readers, authors, and all-around zany people. I had a great time and it was probably the highlight of my summer.
Now, after getting away a bit and recovering from my travels, I’m back to work and hitting it hard. Jacob’s Ladder is releasing in about a month and I’m working on something that might be a surprise release for November. A little follow-up to a relationship that was hinted at in Jacob’s Ladder. I just was inspired to write the story, which I think will end up being a long-ish novella, and hope to have it polished and ready before the Christmas season starts. We’ll see how it goes…
Meanwhile, I’ll be around most of the week, here on the blog. Feel free to ask questions in the comments if you want to know anything in particular, and I’ll address it either there or in a future post. Sound good? Good. Now, everybody gear up for a fun week!
Five out-of-this-world authors share their science fiction romance heroes—hot as the sun, cool as depths of space, and all boxed up for you in one sexy, irresistible package! Open the pages and fall into the otherworldly arms of a sci-fi man who will make you see stars!
DARK RUNNER, LODESTAR SERIES, BOOK 3.5 BY CATHRYN CADE
Tal Darkrunner is not just a tattooed bad boy, he’s the leader of a dangerous gang. Serpentian warrior Scala Raj knows this—so why can’t she stay away from him? She’s supposed to be spying on him to gain back her freedom, not falling for him.
ASSASSIN’S HUNGER, SHEERSPACE BOOK 3 BY JESSA SLADE
Stripped of her identity by a cybernetic mercenary corporation, Shaxi was a mindless killer until the corporation was destroyed and set her free. Now lost and alone, she desperately needs to master her unlinked programming before she succumbs to the rogue madness. But the electromagnetic storm that might save her also blows in the Asphodel, a sheership with more mysteries and menaces than Shaxi has ever faced…including the enigmatic Eril Morav, a heartless assassin on a quest to save the sheerways, even at the cost of his own soul. Eril thinks he’ll use Shaxi to do his dirty work, but she might be the one being in the universe who can light his black-hole heart.
HEADSPACE BY CALINDA B
Vienna has a gift of intuition and the ability to make people think they actually had the experience she pulls from their mind. She operates a high tech, virtual fantasy encounter service, accessing the desires of men and acting them out in her customized room called Headspace. Vienna’s very successful in her virtual sex life but in her real life, she’s never climaxed.
When Vienna confides her secret in Jonas, he wants to help, promising success by her birthday. Only thing is, he’s in a committed relationship with a long-time girlfriend. When his shrewish girlfriend becomes jealous over his friendship with Vienna, will he cut off the friendship and break her heart?
END OF THE LINE, JIT’SUKU CHRONICLES BY BIANCA D’ARC
Enemy Captain Val downs a female fighter pilot out near the Galactic Rim. Her name is Lisbet and she’s about to rock his world.
Their attraction is mutual and explosive. She can’t resist him, but she hates being a prisoner. Lisbet doesn’t know a lot about his culture and it’s clear he doesn’t understand humans. It’ll be fun educating him about just how fierce… and loving, a human woman can be.
LIKING IT RUFF BY MINA CARTER
Some girls don’t play nice…
Licensed Bounty Hunter and mercenary, Naz, has always been a wild one. After all, chasing criminals across the known galaxy is bound to knock a few cogs loose. No crew, no partner, she works hard and plays hard. Tannick Ruff, Alpha weredog and all round SOB, can see the potential in Naz as a hunter. She might just be tough enough, and crazy enough, to join his crew. The fact that he’s been itching to get inside her for months has absolutely nothing to do with it…

As the title of this post suggests – I hope everyone in the US has a great 4th of July! We’re a little rained out here on Long Island, thanks to the hurricane that’s passing off to our east, but it’s all good. I didn’t really have any big plans anyway. *shrug*
Since today is the last full day of being blog mom here, I just wanted to thank you all for the nice comments you’ve left me all week!
Today, I’m going to give away an ebook copy of an older book a lot of people seem to have missed. It’s a paranormal that is related to but slightly separate from the rest of my paranormal series, Tales of the Were. This miniseries, which I call String of Fate, follows big cat shifters in a different part of the world than the rest of my weres.
Since it’s a holiday, I’ll leave you all with a little movie to enjoy. I had this created to be a teaser trailer for King’s Throne and I think the BookChick did an awesome job! Oh, and remember to come back tomorrow for the list of winners from the week. You can still enter all 6 drawings – Sunday thru today – so get those comments in!!!
