Cover Reveal & Teaser: Warlord’s Mate

It feels as if I’ve been working on this story forever but it’s finally finished and is as epic as I envisioned it to be. Jorrick, my barbarian warlord, is the most alpha male I’ve ever written and I can not wait for you to meet him!  I’ve been sitting on this cover for a long while. Those on my Reader Group have seen it and were told to keep it under wraps for the time being but here it is! I love this one. It might be due to the long-haired hunk on the cover but I think its stunning. This story will release on September 6th, 2019 and is available for pre-order but first….scroll down a bit to read the entire first chapter. (For those who don’t like the sexy bits….this story is not for you! I wouldn’t even read to the end of this excerpt if I were you. 😉 )   Aliens are real. So are Prison Planets. Marcy Duncan finds out the hard way when she’s abducted and dumped on one and told to run or die trying because the inhabitants of Prison Moon One only want one thing–her. Captured and sent to the Arena, … Continue reading

New Release Coming Soon!!

Even though I have a full schedule this year, I can’t help but want to check back in on older characters. One such character is Grace Samuels. We heard a bit about her in Wild Horses and there was something tragic about her Happily Ever After and I needed to change that — So I did. You can catch up with her and Rafe on Valentine’s Day but for now, here’s a small sneak peek.   Life as a mail-order bride has turned out to be everything Grace Samuels thought it would be but after 13 years, her dreams of being a mother are still not fulfilled. When she finds a homeless girl living behind the mercantile in town, her motherly instincts kick into high gear but the girl has a secret that takes Grace and Rafe by surprise, a secret that will either tear them apart or give them both their heart’s desire.       Excerpt   Willow Creek, June, 1885  The sign on the door read Doctor Evan Reid and not a letter had changed since the day they were painted on the glass. Grace read the words for what had to be the hundredth time and … Continue reading

Willow Creek Make-Over

  Some of you may have seen the new covers I’m having made for the Willow Creek series and for those who haven’t, surprise! The series is getting a facelift and I’m still excited every time I see a new cover. The Lawman came out way back in November 2011. Hard to beleive its been seven years since I took a notion to write a book in a genre I loved to read. I had no clue if I would be sucessful writing them and at the time, I didn’t really care. I just enjoyed the genre and took a leap. And here we are, eight novels later.  The rebrand started with Nightingale. I hired a cover artist to make the cover for me as they were time consuming for me to do and–I’m a writer, not a cover artist. When I received the cover, I loved it so much I decided to have them all rebranded to match. Below are those last four novels, all with new covers.         This month, I’m starting on the first four books – the Avery brothers. The Lawman was first and I received the cover today. One thing I wanted to do … Continue reading

Friday First Kiss #121 :: Julia by Lily Graison (Historical Western)

The moment I crack open a new book, I always rush through the beginning, the budding relationship between the hero and heroine, and anticipate that spontaneous moment when one of them makes their move. The First Kiss. The first turning point in every story. Every week here on the blog, I’ll be sharing First Kisses from my books and those of other authors.   This weeks Friday First Kiss comes from, Julia (Book 2 in the Angel Creek Christmas Brides Series) by Lily Graison   Her heart had been fluttering wildly as Mathew touched her but now, as he leaned down, his mouth inches from her own, she feared it would burst through her chest. The moment his lips touched her own, Julia forgot how to breathe. She’d dreamed of being kissed by him, wondered what his hands would feel like against her skin and those dreams paled in comparison. There was a dreamy intimacy to the act and she felt drugged the moment his tongue slid into her mouth. Her womb clenched tight and a small moan crawled up her throat before she could stop it. His thumb brushed her nipple again, the resulting tingles shooting straight to her core igniting … Continue reading

Friday First Kiss #120 :: Charity by Sylvia McDaniel (Historical Western)

The moment I crack open a new book, I always rush through the beginning, the budding relationship between the hero and heroine, and anticipate that spontaneous moment when one of them makes their move. The First Kiss. The first turning point in every story. Every week here on the blog, I’ll be sharing First Kisses from my books and those of other authors.   This weeks Friday First Kiss comes from, Charity (Book 1 in the Angel Creek Christmas Brides Series) by Sylvia McDaniel   For a man who had been open and honest with her, it seemed like a door had slammed shut. Turning to her, he offered her a spoonful. “Taste it and tell me if you like it.” Holding the spoon to her lips, she opened her mouth. Mere inches separated him from her and she moaned at the texture of the meat. “Delicious.” The savoriness ignited her hunger as she licked her lips and he moved even closer.  “Since the ceremony, I’ve wanted another kiss.” Once again, his lips covered hers and the caress of his mouth ripped her breath away. Oh no, what would he want next? * * * * Lewis longed to kiss her since that first peck in the church. That smooch … Continue reading
