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.

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.

Weekend Writing Warriors-Rescue by Ruin Part 2

Only a few more days to Christmas. I hope you’re all set and ready to enjoy the season.

Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating in the Weekend Writing Warriors. Today I have another snippet from Rescue by Ruin, a Victorian steampunk story, for you. Vaughn, the hero, has just caught sight of a rather unusual young lady.

better-wewriwa

“Vaughn Kemple stared at the vision in gold and red. She looked like a woman dressed in flames. He only cared about ladies’ fashion in so far as he knew how to undress them, but even he knew her ensemble was highly irregular. The blouse followed its owner like a second skin. The deep-red corset presented her breasts to the world, lent just a hint of modesty by the sheer gold overshirt. The skirt hugged her beautifully rounded hips and made him want to follow the curves with his hands.

He balled his fists, attempting to push his instant attraction aside. Just because his best friend had dragged him here to drown his sorrows in great booze didn’t mean that he had to take the first available female who dragged him out of his brooding.

He had not given up hope of persuading Miss Beatrice Trevan to see reason.”

Enjoy your weekend and if you would like to win a copy of any of my books come over to Darker Temptations and tell me what you’re excited about this Christmas.

Forced to marry a violent man, Beatrice knows only one way out—ruin her reputation. She climbs aboard the Venia, a dirigible of ill repute, for a masquerade. Bea does not expect to run into Vaughn Kemple, the third Duke of Missenden, who eight months ago left her without an explanation. Feeling secure behind her mask, she decides Vaughn will be the one to ruin her. She may not get to spend forever with this man she still loves, but at least she can have one night of pleasure.

But a mask is not enough to hide her identity. Vaughn recognizes Bea, shocked to find her aboard an airship where sexual freedom isn’t just a thought, it’s celebrated. But her actions are far from innocent. Captivated, he’s determined to make her his.

The heat between them flares, but Vaughn is torn between desire and honor. Bea is afraid to risk her heart on a man she can’t trust. And when her future husband arrives on the scene, it’s more than their hearts in danger.

Tangled Indulgence Release Day & Give-Away

Woohoo! Tangled Indulgence, book 3 in the Celestial Surrender series, comes out today.

tangledindulgence_msr

Reassigned to the nether-end of the galaxy and facing her last night on the planet, Adira has had better days. She shouldn’t have ruffled so many feathers with her investigation, but the trail of missing people was too important to ignore.

She knows exactly how to spend her evening. At an exclusive sex club, she’s determined to confront the Vampire who’s never far from her mind. She only has a few hours, but surely she can entice the sexy bartender to share them with her.

Malachy is more than he appears. Working undercover has him ready for anything… except Adira. The moment he laid eyes on the Sentinel he knew he’d found his lifemate. Unfortunately, the prickly mortal has a wall as hard as a spaceship’s hull around her heart.

Only hours remain to convince her she belongs in his arms, and his bed. As the heated night turns molten, duty and desire collide. Following their hearts will only complicate matters.

Inside Scoop: Our heroine gets the shock of her life when she discovers her voyeuristic nature, and the fact that it is the male-on-male action, as opposed to a ménage, that really gets her juices flowing.

In a moment where her emotions run high Adira had to do something completely out of character. She walks into a sex club and discovers more about her sexual fantasies than she had ever imagined.

I’ve been in that situation. No, not the one walking into a sex club;), but the one where I discovered something surprising about myself. I grew up close to the sea, but never felt very drawn to it. I hate swimming and deep water scares me. Walking along the beach was nice enough, but pretty much the same as walking in the woods or anywhere else. Then I spent two months in Alaska while working on my dissertation and I fell in love with running water. I kid you not, I must have dozens and dozens of pictures of springs, waterfalls, rivers and creeks. The colours, the beauty, the landscape around it. There is a serenity to it that makes me want to sit and daydream. And to this day I am drawn to any flowing water, no matter the location.

To celebrate the release of Tangled Indulgence I am giving away two prizes. Tell me what you discovered about yourself that surprised you in the comments. The first winner, chosen by numbers.org, can choose any of my four books in your preferred eformat, and the second winner receives a copy of Tangled Indulgence. Tell me about the moment you discovered you enjoy deep-fried brussel sprouts or the moment you discovered you like being tied up in bed. Your choice;)! The contest is open until Thursday 7th March.

Have a wonderful Friday!
