Hot Mojave Knights, Pick Me Up Monday and Blog Fest Results

Howdy there. All I can say is Yippee Kay Yay to this beautiful male. And I don't like cowboys that much! I think I'll need to re-think my opinion of these good old boys after this Lol.
Wow, so much going on and such an exciting time for me right now. First off I want to congratulate Michelle msromantic for winning a PDF of Dark Passion Rising. She was my winner from Hot Summer Heroes Blog Hop. She was put in with all the other blogs winners for a chance to win a $100 B&N Gift card. The grand prize winner was Christine over at Curse of the Bibliophile. Congratulations to the both of you and happy reading.
I'm putting in every extra minute I have on writing and getting closer to finishing The Kings Lady from The Knights of Excalibur series. And for those Dark Breed fans out there yes, I've started on Zeke's book so I will have more on that for you in the months to follow along with several other WIP's I'm working on.
In my spare time - yeah, I am one hell of a multi-tasker- I'm working on my dream baby called Hot Mojave Knights a reader event and the first one in Las Vegas! Registration opened on August 16th and we are almost at our quota for featured authors. With the amount of interest generated for this event it looks like it's going to be one hot time! We will be adding tons of stuff to the schedule in the following months as we get things solidified and I promise you will never see anything like this one!
check out and save it in favorites on your browser.
You still have time to get both novellas in my Knights of Excalibur series. Just leave a comment.

Pick Me Up Monday

Happy Monday!

In these dog days of summer I thought it might be refreshing to look at this beautiful man cooling down in a rain forest. Can you imagine how refreshing that water would be?

So much to share since last we spoke! I finish the Hot Heroes Blog today and will pick my winner this afternoon. That winner then be put with the other winners and one will be picked for the ultimate prize of a $100 Barnes and Nobel gift card. Pretty cool huh? I will do a quickie announcement on my blog on Wednesday to let you know who the winner was.

The Knights Druid is out and available through Amazon Kindle and eXtasy books. This is the second in the Knights of Excalibur series. As the plot thickens this one is much even steamier than the first! I won't give any spoiler alerts at this time since. I hope to have the third and final book out by late fall. The Kings Lady is the story of Arthur and Gwen and of course we can't forget Lancelot. There will be closure where Gwen will be able to tell her side of things and how poor Lancelot got caught up in it. Plus things really come to a head between Simon and Darius so you really want to stay tuned on how everything turns out between these two, plus how Arthur and his Knights safe the world from Mordred. I think you will find the twist quite interesting.The Knights Druid

On Saturday August 18th I had my first local book signing at Paseo Verde Library in Henderson, NV. I was joined by Shioban Miur, Johanna Riley, Siobhan Muir, Katie Salidas and Laura Hunsaker.
We met some wonderful readers and cherished the time I could spend with these talented local authors. I also had a special surprise when two of my Bunco partners showed up to support me. Yeah, I kind of became a blubbering idiot for a moment since they touched my heart with their support. I felt humbled by there presence when they had so much to do that day, they squeezed in time to see me. What wonderful ladies.

I also wanted to let everyone know that my dream for a readers event in Las Vegas has grown wings and is flying high! With the talents of RM Sotera, Siobhan Muir and Johanna Riley we opened for registration on August 16th and so far have 9 Featured Authors! There has been wonderful response to our baby and we hope to offer a top notch, exciting experience for all fans of romance, whatever you favorite genre may be I'm sure you will find what you like here.
So yes, I guess you can say I've been busy Lol! And this is not counting all those WIP's I'm working on. My passion is writing and sharing my worlds with you and feel very humble that you take the time to read and enjoy my work. Thank you all for the support you give.
Have a wonderful week and we will talk soon.

It's hotter than hell and twice as sexy! I am so tickled to be a part of this talented group of authors! So many wonderful stories, goodies to win and hunks to drool over! LOL!
I can't think of anything hotter than a hero who can find redemption and share control with that special woman who tames him. The idea of a man being strong enough within himself to encourage and treat his woman as his equal is off-the-charts hot, hot, hot to me.
So, what is this all about? I just shared with you what makes up a hot hero and now I would love to hear from you what makes a hero hot. Of course there is a prize involved for the winner.
Now here is the cool part. I will be picking a winner on August 20th from the comments via The winner will receive a PDF copy of your choice between one of the first books in my two series The Dark Breed and The Knights of Excalibur. Plus, my winner will be entered in the grand prize of a $100 gift card to B&N!
Sound good?
Here is your choices:
First book in The Dark Breed Series: 
Tambra Ellis has just had her world turned upside down! Surviving a bite from a Lycan, attracted to one hot vampire guy and now she has to look forward to turning into something from some bad werewolf movie. 
Marcus Valerian has enough on his plate without the added complication of Tambra Ellis. Fiery and independent? Sure. Beautiful with a body made for sin? Oh Yeh. And a human cop. Tambra is everything he needs to stay away from.  

As leader of the Tribunal’s enforcers it’s up to him to find out why the Dark Breeds are going feral and killing humans in ever increasing numbers. Tambra’s life is in the balance as the secrets of her past place her in the middle of old deceits and a betrayal that will change the world forever.
     Will Marcus and Tambra’s love survive or will it be too late.

Her eyes widened in horror as she took a shaky step backward.
“Oh, God.  This isn’t happening.  It can’t be real.  Werewolves don’t exist.”
     “Believe me, they do exist.  Denying what you have seen will be foolish and dangerous, for you and everyone you’re around.”
     “No.  I don’t believe this.  I won’t believe it.  There has to be some logical explanation for what I saw.”  The sharp edge of hysteria rose in her voice.  “I will not turn into a dog.   I don’t even like dogs.”
     That made him smile despite the seriousness of the situation.  She was absolutely adorable and he was in deep shit because of it.  Yet, he couldn’t seem to make himself care. “Wolf, not dog.  You were bitten by a Lycan, not Lassie.”

*Out now - Passion's Flight. Tegan's Story*

First novella in the Knights of Excalibur Series:

Arthur and his Knights are back and ready to kick ass!
Merci Tramaine is not happy to be called back into service by her old boss Arthur, especially when she is charged to find her missing ex lover. Drake Monroe is Merlin reincarnated, with his powers bound by the Goddess Nimue he has become a skilled fighter, but no match for Nimue who kidnapped him determined to destroy him forever.
The bloodline of Morgan Le Fey taints Merci keeping her on the edge between light and dark, the Goddess’s wicked trap springs shut leaving both Drake and Merci racing against the clock. Passions ignite once again, but are they too late to plan a future or will they be torn from each other?
This time for eternity.


Oh yeah, this was a very bad idea.
The minute Arthur’s name appeared on her caller ID, a hard knot formed in her belly. Alarm bells ringing in her head—an inner sixth sense—had warned her that picking up the phone would be a mistake. Arthur would talk about Drake. Arthur would ask for her help, which would ultimately involve Drake. When would she ever learn? She had left that life behind her when she split up with Drake, unable to be near him and keep a working objectivity. If that made her a selfish bitch, then so be it. She knew it was beyond her capabilities to keep an emotional distance when it came to Drake.
Arthur knew all that, too. Damn the man to the nine levels of hell!

*Out now - The Knights Druid - Colins Story
Coming 2012 - The Kings Lady - Aurthur and Gwen'

Monday Pick Me Up - New Release Results and More!

Happy Monday to you!
Hope you all had a terrific weekend. I wouldn't mind taking a little R&R with this bad boy. *evil grin*

As you all know the second book The Knights Druid from Knights of Excalibur was released on the first and I had a little contest to celebrate. The winner was Tina. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy it.

My brain is filled with so many ideas at this moment, I'm a bit dizzy trying to get them all down. When the muse gets going sometimes it's hard to keep up. So I've been writing as many of them down as I can, plus working on existing stories. The third and final book in the Excalibur series is coming along nicely as well as my novel The Summoning.

As I've stated before The Summoning is being submitted to some agents this fall and have my fingers crossed that it finds a home. I'm also working out the outline for Zeke's book, the third in the Dark Breed series through Evernight Publishing and will soon be pounding out that one.

In other news I'm very excited to tell you that three of my local author friends and I finalized the venue for Hot Mojave Knights. It will be held at Sunset Station Resort and talk about plush! This event will be over the top! To see more about this reader event being held in October 2013 go to Reservations will be open August 15th!

Well,back to work pounding the keyboards. See you all on Friday for a peak at one of my WIP's.

The Knights Druid Release Day - Who Will Get A Copy?

         IT'S RELEASE DAY!!!            

With the release of The Knights Druid I'm celebrating by giving away a PDF of my latest book. In order to enter all you need do is leave me a comment telling me what you like about the King Arthur legends. I will be picking and announcing the winner on my Monday Blog. Good luck and thanks in advance for entering. Here is a little teaser on the second of the Knights of Excalibur series.
Avaiable through Extasy Books and Amazon

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 Juliet right in the middle.
Juliet threw him a mutinous look. “Well, I have no answers to give you.”
“That’s where you’re wrong,” Colin’s voice cracked like a whip in the still room. “You are going to tell me everything you know about Vance Hollister.”
“And if I don’t?”
The space between them suddenly narrowed taking her by surprise. She wasn’t even aware he moved. A small gasp escaped her as she found herself looking up into hard, green eyes. He stood so close she could feel his body heat wrap around her, smell the heady scent of dark spices and forest.
He spoke softly, but the menace in his tone carried loud and clear. “You are not a stupid woman Jules, don’t act like one.”
The nickname he used for her made her stomach quiver with excitement. She squelched it quickly, irritation at her reaction replacing her momentary weakness.
“You are such an asshole.”
Colin chuckled darkly. “Aye, darlin’, that’s the truth of it.”
“I hate you, Colin Hennessy. You’re no better than Vance,” She spat, her voice filled with venom. You’re just lying to yourself. A small voice denied her claim.
His gaze turned cold and detached as it swept over her. She shivered involuntarily instinctively clutching the sheet tighter to her and her pulse quickened. With fear? Anticipation? She didn’t know and was not about to head down that road to find out.
“Hate me all you want, it matters little to me, but I warn you now, do not mistake me to be anything like Vance Hollister.”
She just hit a nerve. Score one for her side.
Juliet hid a smile of satisfaction, could she exploit this to her advantage, guilt trip him into releasing her? It was worth a try.
“I can’t help but note the similarities,” She tilted her head, studying him. “I’m here against my will. Had Vance’s men been successful I would be his prisoner as well.”
“And kept in a cell, no better than a lab rat,” he ground out harshly.
