Part Two Cover & Blurb Reveal!

Are you ready??? Cover and blurb reveal time!

PART TWO
Abandoned and humiliated, Melanie tries her best to maintain her composure as Bram explains the reason for Tristan leaving–something called a “mate claim frenzy”. In other words, the next time Tristan comes face to face with her, his inner dragon will take control and claim her for his own. Both Bram and Samira try to convince her to accept his attentions earlier than her contract specifies or risk putting not only herself, but also the members of their clan in danger.

Tristan stays away from Melanie as long as possible, but to prevent his dragon from completely taking over, he returns to Stonefire’s lands the afternoon after the First Kiss ceremony. When he shows up naked on Melanie’s doorstep, his human-half maintains control long enough to garner her consent.

Now it’s only a matter of time before Melanie conceives and fulfills her contract. But once she does, will Tristan overcome his hatred of humans and stay with her, or will he push her away?

Sacrificed to the Dragon: Part One Cover & Blurb Reveal!

Cover and Blurb Reveal!!!

Okay, I now present the blurb and cover for Part One of Sacrificed to the Dragon (available later this month):

================

In exchange for a vial of dragon’s blood to save her brother’s life, Melanie Hall offers herself up as a sacrifice to one of the British dragon-shifter clans. Being a sacrifice means signing a contract to live with the dragon-shifters for six months to try to conceive a child. Her assigned dragonman, however, is anything but easy. He’s tall, broody, and alpha to the core. There’s only one problem—he hates humans.

Due to human dragon hunters killing his mother, Tristan MacLeod despises humans. Unfortunately, his clan is in desperate need of offspring to repopulate their numbers and it’s his turn to service a human female. Despite his plans to have sex with her and walk away, his inner dragon has other ideas. The curvy human female tempts his dragon half like no other.

Sneak Peek

Here’s a sneak peek of the cover for Sacrificed to the Dragon: Part One! (And a little glimpse of the world I created…)

Sacrificed to the Dragon: Part One Sneak Peek

Dragon-shifters are coming…

I’ve been somewhat quiet both on this blog and on Facebook for a reason: I’m currently writing two stories at the same time. One is Reclaiming the Wolf (Cascade Shifters #1), but the other is a brand new project.

In the last few months, I’ve come to like reading shorter works, like novellas, because sometimes I just don’t have a lot of time to read a full-length work. Then serials started showing up on my PNR radar, and this month I decided to start my own.

The first serialized story will be called, Sacrificed to the Dragon. The story is set in modern England–except with sexy dragon-shifters.

The first part should be released next month (July), with a new one to follow every 3-4 weeks after that. If you’ve read my AMT series, then you know I’m pretty good at keeping you turning the pages and a serial is a good fit for that. If you don’t like cliffhangers, then you can always buy the finished story when it comes out.

And don’t worry, I’m keeping up with both my Cascade Shifters and my AMT series. The next AMT book should be out in first quarter 2015.

Anyway, back to writing!

Blaze of Secrets is a Finalist!

I just wanted to let you know that Blaze of Secrets is a finalist in the 2014 Readers’ Crown Contest in both the “Paranormal” and “First Book” categories. The winners will be announce at the Romance Convention (aka RomCon) on June 20th. Whatever the outcome, this contest is judged by readers and I’m honored they liked my first book!

It’s sometimes hard for me to believe that it’s been only nine months since I published my first book. Especially since I’m currently writing my fifth work (Reclaiming the Wolf) right now!

Speaking of which, it’s time for me to get back to writing my sexy shifter story. I know some of you are waiting for some Sy and Kaya sexiness. ;)

Shadow of Temptation Blurb Reveal!

Okay, I finally have the blurb for Shadow of Temptation!
—————

An undercover agent about to crack…

Two years of living a double-life has taken a toll on Sabrina Ono, but if she plays her cards right, her assignment should be finished within the week. However, just as she starts planning her final moves, a man she once called friend shows up wanting revenge.

A man with an unusual power…

Jorge Salazar is a Shadow-Shifter. After being forced to work for a sociopath for nine months, he strikes a deal to escape, but there’s a price for his freedom—he must capture the leader of a Feiru terrorist group and turn him in. Unfortunately, the only person who can help him succeed is the woman who not only betrayed his biggest secret, but also broke his heart.

As the pair work against the clock to bring down the terrorist group and save another group of innocents from dying, an unexpected attraction builds. Will Sabrina and Jorge’s secrets be too much to overcome, or will their feelings be able to heal past wrongs?

—————

Don’t worry, June is next month so you won’t have to wait long for this story. And you also have the cover to look forward to later this month. I have a new cover artist and the style will be completely different (she’s going to redo the other two AMT books too, in September). I know I’m excited to see my new cover, and I can’t wait to share…

The Randomness of Research

I may have more years of post-secondary education than I will ever need, but I can tell you one thing–I learn more writing romance than I did in most of my former college classes.

How is this possible, you ask? Well, the curse of a writer is that a character will just pop into your head without warning. Often times they have occupations, histories, or interests that you know nothing about.  Sometimes, I just want to know the exact location of something that happened in their past. To give you a better idea of what I’m talking about, let me share two recent examples:

1) I was writing a scene for my latest AMT novella, Shadow of Temptation, and I came to a scene where Sabrina (the heroine) tells a crucial part of her past to Jorge (the hero). The event took place on a college campus, and while the reader will never know the name of the university, I couldn’t finish the scene until I knew what university she attended in Brazil, what the campus looked like, and what she had planned to study. As you can imagine, I knew nothing about universities in Brazil, but I do now!

2) I’m doing some pre-writing prep work for Cascade Shifters #1 (Reclaiming the Wolf) and finally figured out the hero’s history. Sylas Murray served in the U.S. Army, in a shifter-only division. The problem? I know very little about the structure and divisions of the army. Eventually, I created my shifter-only division of the Rangers (4th Battalion).

Those are just two examples of random research. As the AMT series has a lot of science and biology in it, I’ve had to research that, too. Especially since my degrees are in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education. At least I’ll never get bored as long as I’m a writer!

Have you had to do some strange research for a project (not just writing) before? What was it?
