Tangled Redemption Cover Reveal!

I am very excited to share the cover for Tangled Redemption, book 4 in my Celestial Surrender series. It is a book close to my heart and releases October 22nd.

TangledRedemption_HiRes

Here is the blurb:

Sydney Radnall is no man’s toy, despite fate’s attempt to make her just that. A kidnapping puts her at the mercy of a sadistic Feral commander. Being held prisoner is bad enough, but her Naema blood is powerful. In her current Vampiric company her presence is like ringing a dinner bell.

In an attempt to break the commander makes her the pet of two of his lieutenants. Miguel is one of the most dangerous men she has ever met, but she can’t stop the attraction blazing between them. Then there is Jayden, a Vampire who is as surprising as he is sexy. Two Vampires she should not be attracted to, should not want to surrender to, should not trust.

But things aren’t always what they seem. Secrets and lies shadow their connections, making it impossible to see clearly. What are the chances of her finding lifemates while surrounded by enemies? And making the wrong decision could not just shatter her heart. It could cost her life.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on Canada!

I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. This comes immediately after last week’s snippet. Archer just informed Sarah that she would pose nude for his artist friend Warren. In exchange for that he would pay her father’s royalties early. He is pushing her to share the true reason for needing the money. You’re about to find out how successful he is! I have used some creative punctuation to give you the whole passage;)

“She jerked back and straightened, “What?”

Here we are; now she would have to tell him why she really needed the money and he could assist her with whatever her problem was.

She turned sheet white; panic glimmered in her eyes before she looked down and tugged on her cuffs.

Archer felt a little nauseated; it had not been his intention to scare her; he sat back down and waited for her surrender.

“All right.”

He struggled to control his expression, “Excuse me?”

Miss Rigdon looked back up, a mulish tilt to her chin, “I said all right.”

What the fuck am I supposed to do now? Talk about a plan rebounding.

BEA was a lot of fun, but exhausting. The banana pudding was heavenly. If you like pudding and are heading to New York let me know. I will share the secret;). When I got home work exploded in my face, pretty much keeping me away from my computer for the whole week. Fingers crossed things will get a little bit better next week.

Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

When he agrees to help, Sarah thinks her luck has turned. But she should have known nothing with Archer is ever easy.

I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It comes a couple of lines after last week’s snippet. Archer is very attracted to Sarah, but she is not prepared to share the reason she needs money. Her distance drives him crazy and may have irked his temper a little bit. Not that she is calmness personified… I have used some creative punctuation;)

“Her tone of voice grated on his nerves: “If you were anyone else I would say pose for my friend, but I cannot see you being a model.”

She came half out of her chair. “And why on earth not? It is not exactly challenging to stand or sit while someone paints you.”

“Really?” He mirrored her pose and leaned forward until they were only a few inches apart. “Well then, if it is so easy let’s make this the condition for the early payment.”

“All right,” her easy acceptance drove him crazy. He still didn’t know why she needed the money, “And you will pose nude.”

I am travelling back from New York today, so it probably be Monday before I get a chance to read everyone’s snippets. I was at Book Expo America (BEA) and staying an extra day to enjoy the sights. And the banana pudding. A colleague of mine knows the best places for food across the city and I’m looking forward to discovering them;).

Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It comes a couple of paragraphs after last week’s snippet. Archer and Sarah are alone. She has asked Archer for an early payment of her father’s royalties, but will not tell him what she needs the money for. When he prods her she blurts out she needs a new wardrobe. His response follows and it may have been just a little snarky … I have used some creative punctuation;)

“Archer didn’t believe her-Sarah Rigdon was not the type of woman who would come to him asking for money for something as frivolous as new clothes. Hell, most of the time she was buried under so many layers she probably had enough clothes to last a lifetime. “Do you seriously expect me to believe you need more clothes?” He gestured at the three layers that covered her, “You appear to be wearing enough clothes to cover yourself and three more people.”

She narrowed her gaze; her nostrils flared: “Will you do it or not?”

He shrugged. “I don’t know. What are you willing to do in exchange?”

Life at work is still crazy. Tangled Redemption isn’t coming together the way I like it, which means I have to push through the first draft and hope I can fix it in edits;).

Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It comes shortly after last week’s snippet. Warren has stepped out of the office again, leaving Archer and Sarah alone again. She has just blurted out her request for an early payment of her father’s royalties, but she will do everything in her power to stop him from finding out she needs the money because her father used the tax money for his latest invention. But this time Archer is not prepared to let her avoid him…

“She tilted her chin in that challenging manner of hers.

His temper flamed. It was bad enough that the little virgin and her voluptuous curves made him hard as a rock as soon as she walked into a room. She might look demure and meek, but deep inside her he sensed a passion that would set the world on fire if she ever released it; only he was sure she’d never done so.

Not that he ever got the opportunity to find out. She always looked at him as if he wasn’t worth her time, as if speaking to him was a strenuous task, and when he tried to engage her she excused herself within minutes.

And now she was asking him for a favor and still wouldn’t give an inch. Not this time.

I am travelling back from New Orleans today, so I am not sure when I will be able to read everyone’s snippet. The Romantic Times Convention was crazy, insane and a lot of fun. It was amazing to meet some of my favourite authors. When I get back home I will have to get my bum in the chair and get working on Tangled Redemption.

I am continuing to share snippets from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It comes shortly after last week’s snippet. Sarah is sharing the reason for her visit with Archer when Warren interrupts them. Their combines presence has an impact on Sarah.

““Miss Rigdon, please let me introduce Warren Hugh Dorvee, a dear friend and housemate.”

Dorvee bowed, “At your service, Miss Rigdon.”

Sarah swallowed. Their combined gazes made her shiver. The office seemed unnaturally hot. Even in their somewhat casual state of dress Latimer and Dorvee dominated the room. She wanted to get up and touch them, rub her hand across Dorvee’s muscular abdomen and see if the dark hair on Latimer’s forearms, bared by the rolled-up sleeves, was as soft as it appeared.

These shocking thoughts pulled Sarah back from the brink.

If you’d like to find out what happens next and don’t want to wait until next week, check out the excerpt here.

I am in New Orleans, so it will be late by the time I come around to everyone’s snippets;).

Today’s snippet is from Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It follows on closely from last week’s. Sarah is now in Archer’s office and sharing the reason for her visit.

“I am here for two reasons,” she lifted the bag onto her lap and opened it. With a hiss the pneumatic shrinking device that matched the bag to whatever needed carrying released, and she removed a square metal box with two colored lights on the top. “This is my father’s latest invention; he calls it the Rigdon’s Banknote Verification Device.” She set it on the desk. “You feed a banknote in here,” she pointed to a slit on the side. “The RBVD will test it; if the note is false, the red light will flash.”

He stilled for a moment, his brow furrowed, before pulling the machine closer. “What made your father go in this direction?”

My editor loved the revisions of my steampunk Christmas novella, which really brightened my rather crappy week. I may have printed and framed the two emails…no, I didn’t frame them, but I did print them;). My day job has been utterly insane, which means I have made no progress with Tangled Redemption.

Today’s snippet is from my new release Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. It follows on closely from last week’s opening, where Sarah walked away from her best friend.

“Just about forty minutes later, her arm aching from the weight of the bag, she arrived outside his house.

Sarah paused at the bottom of the steps; even a few years ago it would have been unthinkable for a young woman like her to visit a man by herself, but progress had come to the Empire in the form of science and invention, which in course had loosened some restrictions.

Just as long as she didn’t make visiting him a daily occurrence, she would be fine.

She hated that she had to go to him with her metaphorical hat in hand, but her alternatives were unacceptable; she exhaled, walked up the stairs and used the brass knocker in the shape of a dragon-how fitting.

The door opened to the butler, a tall, middle-aged man with the pinched lips and disapproving eyes of his profession: “Good afternoon, how may I help you?”

Sarah stepped inside the large entryway. “I am here to see—”

“Jennings, who is it?” The deep voice made her shiver.

If you’d like to find out why Sarah is at this house and don’t want to wait until next week, check out the excerpt here.

I just hit send on the first round of revisions for my steampunk Christmas novella, which means that now I am second guessing every decision I made. The only way to stop my head from exploding is to quickly get back to Tangled Redemption and have that fill my brain;).

Today’s snippet is from my brand new release Danger by Dalliance, a historical erotic menage with steampunk elements. Danger by Dalliance is a sequel to Rescue by Ruin, but either book can be read independently. Comment here for a chance to win a copy of Danger by Dalliance or a steampunk necklace and earrings.

Here is the opening to Danger by Dalliance.

“Miss Sarah Emma Rigdon wrinkled her nose and turned her back on her best friend since childhood. A gasp went through the crowd of people surrounding them. She wanted to turn back, show her support, be there for Beatrice. But she couldn’t afford to draw the attention of gossipmongers.

She continued on with measured steps, ignoring the whispers and stares around her. Her grip tightened on the handle of the bag she carried. Her purse over her other wrist, she walked along the path. Only a few more steps, you’re nearly there; Sarah kept her face expressionless, pretending not to see or hear anything.”

If you have read Rescue by Ruin you may remember this scene from a different point of view;).

I am hard at work at revising the Christmas novella I’ve sold to Loose Id and adding words to Tangled Redemption. I am back to needing more hours in the day and a full-time job that doesn’t require most of my brain function. Oh, and I desperately need to find a solution to my procrastination;).

Happy Sunday, Happy Easter to those who celebrate and Happy Writing!
