In honor of this Irish holiday I am giving away one PDF copy of The Knight's Druid. Why? Its got one hot as hell Irish shapeshifter Colin Hennessy and of course a sexy Druid who keeps him on his toes. Here is a bit about the book.
What’s worse than a pissed off Knight? Colin Hennessy.
Shifter, Knight and quick tempered Irishman, Colin remembers vividly his past life as Sir Kay. Haunted by the woman he once loved and lost, he has spent his lives searching for his lost love to no avail. Now Arthur is back and his life once again is filled with purpose. Joined by a common goal, he lives only to protect Arthur and his fellow Knights from the twisted, black magic of Mordred.
Juliet Boyd moves among societies rich and pampered, but she holds within her a terrible secret. One Vance Hollister is determined to exploit. Mordred is back in a new skin, now as Vance Hollister and the old evil is alive and well.
Colin and Juliet are unprepared for the flare of attraction that ignites between them from across a moonlit parking lot. Dare she open herself and expose her cursed gift? Can he save Juliet from Vance’s twisted manipulations or will he lose his second chance at love
A showdown between good and evil is coming to a head with Colin and Juliet right in the middle.

Welcome to another snippet from The Summoning: Rise of the Sentinels.
Catlin is getting way over her head when one kiss from Lucien has her wanting so much more.
     Her arms reached up to wrap around his neck as his pressed her tightly against him, his hands cupping her ass as he lifted her up off her feet his tongue pillaging her mouth. The hard ridge of his erection ground into the flesh of her stomach only making her hotter by the contact. Her fingers speared through his thick silky hair as she held him to her like a drowning woman and he was her life preserver. He broke the kiss his breathing as fast and rough as hers, he slid her down his hard body and stepped away. The absence of his body made her want to cry out with loss and she bit down on her lip to keep quiet and her pulse thrummed in her ears.
     “I’m sorry Catlin that should never have happened.” He spoke in a husky voice that sent tremors through her.
     She could feel moisture pool between her thighs as need hammered into her refusing to cool down. It took all her control to keep from going to him, rubbing against his length. She had never experienced need like this. She wanted him with an intensity she never before encountered and it scared her more than a little. That fear enabled her to reign in the crazy attraction she held for him and she looked up into the cold blank mask that was once again firmly in place on his handsome face.

Pick Me Up Monday

Happy Monday!
This yummy pick came to me via one of my subscriptions and after I got my tongue back in my mouth I had to share. Now this would have been quite an awesome birthday present, but I fear I would have worn him out Lol!
After a very busy birthday weekend I'm back at work. Thank you everyone for your well wishes, I truly appreciated them and am grateful to all of you wonderful readers and authors who took the time to say hi.
Right now I'm finishing a short read which is in the Dark Breed world, revolving around the Asp owner Mari and you will have a short peek at the woman who will prove to be quite a challenge for Temple Fox.
Due to trademark reasons the series is now called Dark Breed Enforcers. I am also working on books three and four of the series and hope to have them out this year. No idea of the dates of release as of yet. Book three is called Dark Desire and is Zeke's story followed by Cody's, still untitled at this time. So all of you out there who love my cocky Cajun your book is coming!
In between those two books I'm editing The Summoning and getting ready to send it out for submission. Hope to have it ready in the summer and I also have another short historical paranormal coming your way.
This week I have another edition of WIP-Wednesday with a special blog hop coming on Sunday the 17th so Pick Me Up Monday will be preempted next week.
I will check in with you after the hop and give you the low down on all the news then.
Have a wonderful week

As Janelle battles to save Caltin she can no longer ignore the urgent call to summon.

Summon me through!

A demand.

The voice deep and strong brought a shiver sluicing through her body like warm silk on her bare skin. That voice! So familiar and yet she couldn’t place it. She shook her head and focused on the deadly dance in front of her. She had never seen her friend fight with a sword before and the sight would have been entertaining if the situation weren’t so deadly. She bit back a scream as Balen swung his weapon aiming at her neck. Janelle barely dodged the deadly blade. Blood covered her thigh and leg falling steadily onto the sandy ground.  Catlin knew the longer they fought the weaker she would become. She felt helpless not knowing what she could do to help, terrified to think what would happen if she failed.

Summon me now!

The demand was stronger than before. Was she losing it? Where the hell did that voice come from? “I don’t know how.” She spoke into the wind letting the wind carry her words through the air.

You know the words just think of bringing me to you that is all you need do.

That sensual voice wrapped around her in a lover’s caress urging her to do as he asked. She closed her eyes the words magically in her mind. Each line forming as she spoke. “Yes, I will summon you here.” The words at first faint like a long forgotten song, built in strength as the words and melody twined together. A sense of urgency rose within her with every word she uttered.  Throwing her head back she let the summoning pour out of her lips speaking the ancient words as if they were a part of her.

I summon thee to my side

Through the Veil you must stride

Champion my cause and lend me thy might

I release thee so you may fight.”

A crack of thunder stunned everyone to stillness as Balen and Janelle swung their attention toward where she stood with arms outstretched above her a blue glow emanating from her hands building into a large sphere of blue white light. The sphere flew from her hands exploding into the nearby trees that surrounded the dunes and beach.

“Cat, what the hell did you do?” Janelle screamed a note of terror evident in her voice. “Damn fool woman opened the Veil. Shit!” Balen bit out, a black scowl marring his good looks as he turned toward where the sphere had gone.

Pick Me Up Monday - New Release and Blog Tour!

Happy Monday!
This guy looks just about as thrilled as I am with Mondays. Nice to have something in common *big grin*
I have exciting news! The King's Lady released on Friday March 1st. Kind of an early birthday present for me. I'm in the process of getting together a HUGE blog tour for it and I couldn't be in better hands. My good friend Nicky over a Book and Trailer Showcase (BTS) are putting out all the stops for this one. I'll have much more news once the tour dates are finished, but I can tell you there will be tons of different giveaways in store.
In other news, I'm hard at work on Dark Desire and a few other projects, pushing to meet my goal of four books and two novellas to release in 2013. I'm enjoying the challenge so far. We will just have to see if I feel the same by June Lol!
I best be getting back to work, those books don't write themselves. Have an awesome week and see you all on
