Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is out in Print!


Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is now out in print! So, for all you out there who prefer to hold the physical book in your hands (and it’s very pretty!), you can buy it on Amazon.com here.

In other news… I’ve at last found a name for the sequel to Pretty Witches All in a RowKiss the Witch Goodbye. So far I’m about 13K into the story, we’re looking at a release some time in July. Here’s the blurb.

A visit from his past conjures trouble between Sgt. Nick Gibson and his pretty witch, Annaliese, as he tries to balance police work with premonition.

Kiss the Witch Goodbye draws us into the gritty world of rock with a local band that’s hit it big. But with fame comes misfortune, as someone is killing their fans and the evidence points to lead singer, Jax May. Ready to defend her old boyfriend with her last breath, Annaliese champions Jax’s innocence – despite the fact that he’s experiencing frightening blackouts and missing time. FBI Agent Natalie Fox is closer to the case than she’d like to let on, and does her best to convince Nick of the singer’s guilt.

Is Jax simply a local boy made good or a vicious killer?

Will Nick choose cold hard facts or rely on his instincts to guide him to the truth? Will Annaliese be able to use her special talents to prove Jax innocent and find the real killer before it’s too late? As more victims surface, the truth might be darker than either of them believe possible.

Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is out!


My new book is out! Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is now available for sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble! It’s out as an e-book for $3.99 but you don’t have to have a Kindle or Nook to read it, they have free downloadable apps so you can read it on your PC, or even your phone. It’ll be available in print as well in a few days through Amazon.

Here is the blurb:
“Bossy Anja was in control now, and I’d be damned if I let either Ellri take that away from me.”

Anja will endure anything to save her loved ones – torture, humiliation, showtunes, you name it. For Rob she’s sacrificed everything, even her last drop of blood, desperate to save him from Lodinn’s twisted revenge fantasy. In this seventh Forged Bloodlines installment, Release Me When the Sun Goes Down, Anja realizes that the only way to defeat an enemy scarier than Jakob is to stop relying on a knight in shining armor to do it for her and fight him herself. In the process she finds the strength to take back her due and the man she loves. The answer to her problems lies in the birthplace of vampire mythology, and Anja embarks on a rescue mission to save her family and friends before they’re picked off one by one.

Next up… the yet unnamed sequel to Pretty Witches All in a Row

A Taste of Release Me When the Sun Goes Down


Four days until Release Me When the Sun Goes Down is out!

As promised, here is an excerpt that goes with this teaser:

*Anja and Rob steal a few private moments together*

“Hey, sleepyhead.” I sat on the edge of Rob’s bed to shake him awake. Normally I liked to let him sleep in until he naturally rose, but Jenessa had taken Maggie out shopping and Hanna was upstairs playing Texas Hold ‘Em with Lee, so we had some relative privacy for the moment.

“Hey,” he murmured, his voice low and roughened with sleep. “Something amiss?”

“Nope, just thought I’d ask you something to help settle a bet.”

His brows crinkled closer in confusion. “What kind of bet?”

“You do like the ladies, don’t you?”

“Come again?”

“Jenessa was wondering, and seeing as how I haven’t been close enough to you to tell lately…”

That’s as far as I got before he grabbed hold of me with one arm and pulled me into the bed beside him, growling, “I’ll show you how much I like the ladies.” He covered my neck with raspy kisses, making me giggle uncontrollably until we settled under the comforter, my hair half strewn across my face as I fought for breath.

“Hullo,” he rumbled, brushing the strands away from my forehead.

I smiled up at him, my arms sliding around his waist. “Hi.”

“You shouldn’t be in here like this.” But he didn’t make any move to let me go.

“I know. It’s only Lee and Hanna in the house though, their hearing isn’t as good.”

“It is with you making such a ruckus.”

“I could always say you did something funny to make me laugh.”

“Because I’m known for acting the comedian?” He raised a single brow.

“Then don’t tickle me with your scruff and I won’t be so loud. When’s the last time you shaved anyway?”

“I thought you liked me like this.”

“I do yesterday or tomorrow, today is that super prickly stage,” I said, rubbing my jaw along the side of his.

“I see,” he said seriously. “And how will you explain what I done to make this sound?” In the space of a breath he ducked under the comforter, tugging up the corner of my shirt to nip at the tender skin underneath my ribs. He was probably going for the tease, but the second I arched up under him it became something else. His mouth closed over my flesh, no longer tickling, but kissing and nuzzling his way back up to my neck. This time it didn’t tickle one bit as my head lolled to the side, giving him better access.

“So soft…” he murmured against my skin, pressing intimately against me and my legs parted to accept him. This was dangerous, and I never wanted it to end. Rob’s lips closed over mine and I moaned against his mouth. I couldn’t help it, I wanted to taste him so badly.

“We have to stop,” he whispered, even as his hands skimmed lower.

“I know.” But neither one of us did.

He was the one to break the silence as my hand wrapped around his length, hard and ready for me, and I laid a finger to his lips. “Shh, the only way this works is if we’re absolutely silent. Or do you want me to stop?”

He looked up at me, helpless to the passion clouding his hazel eyes when I held him in my grasp. “Don’t stop,” he breathed. “Don’t ever stop.”

Winners for the Forged Bloodlines fan fiction contest!

As promised, I have winners in multiple categories for the Forged Bloodlines fan fiction contest. In no particular order they are:

Most inspiring – Perfect Or Real, You Can’t Have Both by Randi Padgett.
This one made me a little sentimental as I read Anja experiencing perfection and reality. It made me think about how some things will never come to pass and some of the experiences Anja will miss out on. It definitely gave me some seeds of ideas for later down the line. (no vampire babies, I promise!)

Most whimsical – Captain America, Rob and Bishop, Oh My! by Kayla Johnson
Such a cute story! It made me want to go to Comic Con with Anja and the boys and see what ruckus they could get up to! Can you imagine how easy it would be to cut in line if you could compel people? Not to mention the photo ops and autographs you could get! (Not that Anja would ever abuse that ability!)

Most like canon – Don’t Wake Me by Beckie Pimentel
Beckie was spot on with the dialogue and the setting was perfect for Anja and Rob. I could easily see this going on in Rob’s mind during his transition from human to vampire, sweet and a little sad at the same time.

All three ladies win a $10 Amazon gift card, some sweet swag and a signed copy of one of my books!
