Make Some Noise- Day 12

Today I want to celebrate Samhain Publishing and Anne Scott my editor.

I had no idea what to expect those first edits. The email started with a LARGE list of things I needed to clarify–and I had to call off my love affair with ‘that’ and ‘…’ and ‘ly’.

She’s patient, and thorough, and working with Anne has been one of the best parts of this past year. I have learned so much and every step of the way Anne’s encouraged me to grow and helped make my books so much better. I know she’s celebrating with me, so I want to celebrate her. Today’s prize is your choice of one of these ebooks Anne edited. Three of them are from established authors at Samhain, and one a new writer Anne pulled from the submission pile. Marian Perera’s first release will be out April 6.

Fairy tales do come true, and people like Anne help keep the dream of becoming published alive. (BTW, I’ve gotten a chance to read Before the Storm and I’ll be posting a review/squeal session about it right around release day. Very good book!)

Sunset Knight

Good thing come to those who dare.

Lana Green is looking for a lover. At twenty-three, she’s more than ready to shed her shyness and shake up the status quo. Lucky her, the aloof bad boy she’s always wanted to shake it with, Brody Nash, is back in town. Too bad he barely knows she’s alive. Then an unexpected kiss makes her think her days of lusting from a distance are over. Despite the fact she’s no femme fatale and has zero clue how to seduce a man, she sets out to do exactly that.

Brody hardly recognizes the alluring woman as the same gawky computer geek he left in Graceville six months ago. Lana has him spellbound, but his temporary stay in town is strictly business—running his friend’s restaurant while the man’s on his honeymoon. Brody doesn’t do relationships, and he doesn’t do permanent. But when he finds her asleep on his boat, he can’t keep his hands, or any other part of his anatomy, to himself.

Things get complicated when he discovers what he thought was a casual sexual encounter has just cured her of the one thing she wanted to get rid of—her virginity.

Blood and Destiny

When the past bites, bite back.

Ladies of St. George, Book 1

For Destiny St. George, shapeshifting lioness and private investigator, her best friend’s looming wedding is little more than a reminder of her failed relationship with vampire king Marcus Smythe. Tired of being only one of many mistresses—and dinner entrees—she’s stayed away from the vampire scene altogether. Until a missing-person case forces her to seek his help.

Knowing that pressing Destiny is not the way to convince her to give their relationship another try, Marcus has been waiting her out—and his patience is rewarded when she steps into his nightclub. Now is his chance to lure her back into his arms. This time, he plans to keep her there.

Destiny’s not sure which is worse: working with Marcus, or trying to remember all the reasons she called it off with him. And when it becomes clear the case is an elaborate trap to avenge a millennia-old grudge, she finds herself caught between love and instinct—while the clock ticks down on an innocent victim’s life…

Warning: Vampires determined to take more than a bite out of the heroine. A lioness sure that she’s going to have the last word.

Breaking Daylight

Touching her crosses the line…and shoots his code of honor all to hell.

Sergeant Alex Shepard is all about getting the job done. That single-minded purpose helps him forget the fact he hates the jungle as he leads his Special Forces team in search of Honduran drug lord Santiago Saldana. His quarry eludes him, but the woman left behind in the compound is the next best thing. Saldana’s mistress—an American woman who clearly puts her own pleasure over right and wrong.

Isabella Canales has been Saldana’s prisoner for four long years. Worse, he’s taken away her most precious possession. Except Alex doesn’t believe a word of it. The clock is ticking, and she’s frantic to do anything to convince him to take her home. Even agree to serve as bait to draw Saldana out.

As they push through the tangled jungle dodging bullets and ambushes, Alex fights his growing respect for Isabella’s determination—and an attraction that’s impossible to resist, whatever she’s done. But Saldana never lets go of what’s his. And betrayal is his deadliest weapon…

An arrogant hero who meets his match in a sexy heroine who makes him look past her face and into his soul. Gunfights and explosions (in and out of the bedroom).

Before the Storm

Whore…gift…and unexpected ally.

Eden Trilogy, Book 1

In Dagran society, Alex is the lowest of the low—a “mare”, an object to be used by the nobility. When her owner, Stephen Garnath, gifts her to his greatest rival, she begins plotting her path to freedom. Nothing and no one will ever control her again. Not her degrading past, and certainly not her growing attraction to a man reputed to be an even crueler master than Garnath.

Robert Demeresna is instantly suspicious of such a generous gift. Yet she comes to him armed with only her sharp mind—a potent weapon he can use to defend his people from the enemy. And underneath, an unbreakable spirit that besieges the walls of his heart.

Slowly, Robert chips away at Alex’s defenses, striking sparks that make her begin to believe even a lowly whore like her could be worthy of him. Until Garnath springs a trap so cleverly hidden, war is unleashed before either of them sees it coming. A new kind of war fought with steam engines, explosives—and magic with a killing edge…

Warning: Contains violence, steam engines, steamier sex and multiple explosions of the unstable chemical variety.

Make Some Noise- Day 11

Into the last stretch and it’s time to turn up the heat. I was going through my list of early ebooks I purchased, and then checking on the shelf for print book keepers and found a lot of them seemed to be by the same author.

Maya Banks.

She’s one of the authors I’ve followed from ebook to print, and enjoyed these steamy reads. I like that she’s still putting out novella ebooks with Samhain, and I like that she’s got hot books in print.

Today’s prize is a PRINT copy of Sweet Seduction.

He was the stuff erotic dreams are made of

Salon owner Julie Stanford wanted Nathan Tucker ever since she gave him his first massage. Getting paid to feel every inch of his body, stripped, oiled, and spread out in front of her? Stuff dreams are made of. But the sexy lug was oblivious to the signals she was sending—until she finished off his final rub-down with something extra. In fact, the best extra he ever had. Unfortunately, he came around too late. Now Julie’s moving on…

She was everything he’d dreamed of

The woman was driving him crazy. She lit fire to his insides then ran like a scalded cat. And now she’s going to someone else to have all her fantasies fulfilled? Over his dead body… He’s more than willing to give her what she wants, and as soon as he pins the little minx down, he’d show her his own brand of sweet seduction.

Make Some Noise- Day 10

Print Antho Bks 1&2 coming April 6

Four days left to party, and I’m about to make the room get real crowded.

So many people have touched me this past year. Made me smile. Made me outright LMAO- like getting into a convoluted three-way on Twitter with Alisha Rai and Keith Melton, two awesome new authors. (Sorry about the eyebrows, Keith.)

There’s my buddies at International Heat, including Valerie Tibbs who stepped out this past year herself in a big way. She’s the artist in our group, painting pictures with pictures instead of words. You can see the covers she did for me on the free reads.

Leah Braemel is my Canadian connection, who keeps me moving as we pants our way through another book.

Then there’s the dynamic duo of Donna and Bree, the not-so-secret identities behind Moira Rogers. We’ve shared an editor and a release date. We’ve discussed statistical analysis of rankings vs. sales vs third party venders. There have been a few giant spider killing tips thrown into the mix and in the end you get a couple of peeps I love to hang out with.

And I love to read their stories. They also write paranormal–werewolves, witches and general mayhem–and every time I finish one of their books I swear when I grow up I’m going to learn to plot a multi-book series like them. Each book stands alone, but each book marvelously fits into the whole and I need to know what happens next! Their print anthology of the first two books in this series releases in a few days.

Today’s prize is an ebook of your choice of the first three books in the Red Rock Pass series,as I wait impatiently for Sanctuary Unbound, book 4 in the series, coming out June 1.

Make Some Noise- Day 9

When Twilight came out I couldn’t read it. I’ve never been able to read stories written in first person, and so my immediate response was to put the book down. But over the past year I’ve discovered more and more authors are using that writing style so I decide it was time to counter my bias against first person. I’m still a hard sell, but I’ve now come to be able to appreciate the style. enough that when I picked up Ann Aguirre’s Grimspace and saw it was first person, I didn’t flinch. Or not as much. And in the end I LOVED the book. I’ll post a review on it after the anniversary party is over.

In the meantime, today I’m giving away a couple of the books that helped teach me to appreciate first person writing. I’d loved Cheyenne McCray’s earlier works and bought both books without even looking at the blurbs. Imagine my shock–that turned to enjoyment. So I’ve gotten a set of both these books for you to try.

The First Sin

AN ELITE PARTNERSHIP

Alexi Steele is determined, relentless, and driven to protect the innocent. She’s a top agent of the NSA’s clandestine Recovery Enforcement Division, specializing in human trafficking and sex crimes. Her current mission: To infiltrate the inner circle of Boston’s exclusive S&M clubs in order to save thirteen young women who are about to be auctioned off to the highest bidders. But Lexi’s only way in is under the “control” of her new partner in crime, Nicholas Donovan.

AN EROTIC END GAME

Nick will do whatever it takes to bring down the billionaire sex-ring mastermind who’s kidnapped his sister. But the games he must play as Lexi’s “dominant” are burning away his icy control, and blurring the lines between partners. Meanwhile, their enemies are closing in as they enter a devastating race against time…bringing them dangerously close to THE FIRST SIN.

The Second Betrayal

THEY ARE BOUND BY DUTY AND DESIRE.

As an undercover agent for the NSA’s Recovery Enforcement Division, Alexi Steele is no stranger to the ways and means of the country’s most notorious sex criminals. Still, she’s never seen anything quite like this. Girls from across the globe are being recruited for a modeling competition in New York City, only to end up as enslaved prostitutes. Now it’s up to Lexi and her partner—and lover—Nicholas Donovan to infiltrate the operation.

BUT WILL THEIR FIGHT FOR JUSTICE TEAR THEM APART?

Finding the mastermind behind the sex trafficking is only one half of the challenge. The other is Nick. Even though she has always trusted him, Lexi can’t help but wonder whether he’s keeping something from her—a shocking secret from his past on the Special Forces unit. Meanwhile, time running out for the victims…and Lexi may be forced to do the unthinkable to see that the job is done.
