A Brand New Story and a few re-releases

I am tickled to announce the release of a brand new story - CLAIMING THE OWL.  It is the sixth story in my Animal Attraction series of hot and sexy gay shifters and the men they fall in love with.


UNLEASHING THE JAGUAR

Michael found himself in the most awkward of situations.  Trapped in his jaguar form as the newest inhabitant at a zoo, he has to figure out how to get free, without anyone finding out about his people's existence, and without getting caught.  When his ex shows up, Michael isn't certain of allowing Danny to ride to the rescue is such a good idea, especially given how things between them ended.  But if he wants to have a life beyond one trapped in his animal form, he has to take the chance of his feelings rekindling.



CAGING THE TIGER

Kyle though that he was all alone, the only of his kind, until he attended a magic show and saw through the spectacle to the method behind the illusion.  If he wasn't wrong, Meric the Magician, in addition to being his best friend, was also a tiger shifter.      

 


HEALING THE FOX

When an injured fox comes into the wildlife rehabilitation center, Scott knows he isn't an ordinary animal, he's a shifter.  Taking him home, Scott does his best to care for the injured shifter, and finds himself falling in love.  Knowing it would be selfish to ask Christian to stay, Scott has to decide if he will let Christian walk out of his life, hoping that his love will return. 



CLAIMING THE OWL

Torn Between Duty …
 Adam is given the task of collecting his matriarch’s son for his upcoming nuptials.  Only problem is, Nick isn’t remotely interested in his bride, or any woman for that matter.  Something both men have in common.

 … and Desire 
 Despite his misgiving, if Adam wants to retain his place in their owl parliament, he has to complete his assigned task.  The only problem is, Adam wants to claim Nick as his own.

What do ...


What do Babylon 5, Farscape and a sexy space menage have in common?

ALL ALONE IN THE NIGHT

Now that I have you completely confused, I will explain ...

I am a geek, as many of you know.  I have never tried to hide it.  In fact, I revel in my geekiness.  Part of my geekdom is a love of sci-fi shows, specifically space romances. : )  With B5 there was Delenn and Sheridan.  Farscape has Crichton and Aeryn Sun.

All Alone in the Night is my sexy menage sci-fi erotic romance set in a near future (I am not too specific about exactly when).  It features a heroine who is determined to find out what happened to her two best friends, no matter the cost.  Even if it means her life.

She is finally given clearance to go on a fact-finding mission, and everything is going well ... until, well, it isn't going well.  a wormhole opens up, and she is sucked in and transported to an alien planet outside of our star system.  That whole plot-point is my nod to Farscape.

As for how B5 fits in ... when I was getting ready to publish the story with Phaze, it was suggested to call it Alone in the Night, dropping the ALL at the beginning.  I politely refused, and explained why.

The introduction to the first season of Babylon 5 goes like this:
"It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where Humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call – home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five-hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5."

I wanted to keep the title just like it was, because it was a nod to another sci-fi show that I love.

So there you have it, how Babylon 5, Farscape and a sexy space menage have in common - a geek who loves to write sexy stories, and watch sci-fi shows, with a romance subplot.

Oh ... and ALL ALONE IN THE NIGHT is now available again ...

Riana had almost given up hope of ever finding her lost comrades, and friends, when the Earth-Space Initiative finally decided to send her on a fact finding mission, almost two years after Braden and Davin had gone missing.  They figured it was finally safe.

They figured wrong.

Now Riana is stuck on a strange planet, with no way home, lucky to be alive after being sucked into a wormhole.  And she wasn’t the only one stranded there; she had found the missing pilots.  With no way home, and only themselves to answer to, they had plans for her, plans several years in the making.

18/50


18/50.

What does it mean?

Well ... it is the ranking BLACKOUT currently holds at All Romance eBooks. It is ranked #18 out of the top 50 on the their Best Sellers list.

HOLY CRAP!!!!

I'm sure some of you are wondering why this is such a big deal for me. Well, this MM office romance story was previously released with the now defunct Noble Romance. During the almost three years it was with them, it sold maybe 3-5 copies each month. I always worried the low sales/interest was a reflection of the story, which bothered me because I LOVE this story.

So to see it doing so well as a re-release really makes me feel good.

Animal Attraction

I am starting to re-release my Animal attraction series, leading up to the October release of an all new story.

First up is TAMING THE WOLF and EMBRACING THE LEOPARD.

Each story in the Animal Attraction universe is completely stand-alone, so you can pick and choose ... or real them in any order you want.

TAMING THE WOLF

Ben had accepted that he would quite possibly live the rest of his life alone; gay werewolves just didn't happen naturally.   Then one day Nathan, another rogue-made werewolf, turns up on his doorstep and he finds that maybe there is a mate for him after all, if he can teach the younger man how to tame his inner wolf.

EMBRACING THE LEOPARD

Although born of leopard shifter parents, Erik had always known his feelings for other men weren't natural of his kind.  Caught between two worlds, his desires for another man and his animal within, he has chosen to be alone, rather than surround himself with what he cannot have.  Then  Brandon  came into his life, and he discovered a whole new way of looking at things, and of embracing both halves of his nature.
