I’m continuing to share from my latest Shadow Codex. Last time we discovered Caleigh was just a little bit gummed by the fact that saving the world meant she missed her book club and thereby one of the few opportunities to spend time with sexy Sawyer. But maybe he is much closer than she thinks…

Steps sounded behind her. She turned around with a smile that died away rather quickly. Kind of hard to smile when your jaw was busy touching the floor. “Sawyer? What are you doing here?”

His eyes widened for a second, but he was much better at catching himself. “Caleigh, what a delight. To answer your question, I am here to see a man about a book.”

She pressed her lips together, struggling to find her brain—why did he have to look so sexy in one of his great suits? He could give Daniel Craig a run for his money.

One witch. One shifter. One angry god hell-bent on the destruction of the world.

Witch Caleigh hunts for the Shadow Codex. She has seven days to unearth it and learn the spell to banish a god before he can do the wipe out the world thing. She didn’t anticipate being joined by sexy Sawyer, the man she’s had a crush on for months. After having suffered devastating loss she’s no longer willing to risk her heart, so a crush is all it can be.

Sawyer has one goal: fulfil his duty as alpha and protect his pack at all cost. Being sidetracked by luscious Caleigh wasn’t part of the plan. When he discovers they are after the same book he’s happy to savor every moment with her. That is all he can do. Because bringing a human into a world where physical prowess is everything would kill her.

The chemistry between them grows explosive until danger catapults them over the edge. Caleigh has to decide how much she’s willing to risk. Sawyer needs to determine if his pack is all that matters. When danger closes in it may be easier to banish a god than to face their inner demons.

Things have been a bit crazy for me. A couple of weeks ago I was at the Romantic Times Convention in Las Vegas. It was absolutely amazing. Coming back I had quite a bit of catching up to do at work. And next week I’m going to be in Ottawa at Romancing the Capital. I’m incredibly excited about going as it’s one of the funnest and best conferences I’ve ever been to. If you’re in the are you should definitely come by for the Saturday Signing. It’s open to the public;).

Happy Sunday and have a fabulous and productive week!

And here are a couple of images of Sawyer’s other half:

I didn’t really have much opportunity to talk about Shadow Codex in the run up to release as we did a very quick turnaround so it would be ready for RT. And now it’s here. According to friend and fabulous reader Natalie it’s #TeamSawyer Forever:).

You can buy Shadow Codex from Loose Id at the slightly discounted price of $4.49. That discount is only temporary, so make the most of it;).

Dirigibles Are Forever Release Day and Contest!

Today is the day! I am so very, very excited to celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever, my super-sexy Christmas novella set in an alternative Victorian London, filled with adventure, secrets and fun, and a dash of James Bond.

I love this story! It was a blast to write it and Holly and Jack have a special place in my heart. Both of them face difficult decisions and Holly is working hard to find her place in the world. It is not the Victorian London you are used to, but a London where Her Majesty Queen Victoria passed the Equal Rights Act and women can do whatever they want…including being Aether Traffic Controllers;). But Holly no longer believes it is enough. She wants more, but has not yet found what this more is.

TC_DirigiblesAreForever

Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.

Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.

When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.

But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?

Now on to the contests! Yes, plural:). I have two fun contests waiting for your participation.

To celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever I’m once again giving away fabulous Overman jewellery.
