A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall...

King Hall -- where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies.

Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing -- The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace -- her burgeoning friendships with the other three Rulers: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life.

Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realizes the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.

Dark, Sexy. Powerful. This Zodiac Dragon Series will scorch the pages.
Lucas is the sixth of twelve Guardians. Dragon-born in the sign of Sagittarius, he carries all the traits of his sign—the good and the bad.
He's honest, outspoken, and can spot a lie from a mile away. So when the Vampire Prince pledges allegiance to the Guardians in hopes of keeping his sister and his clan safe, Lucas becomes uneasy.
Something isn't quite right with the Vampire Princess, nor with the tale her brother has told, and as the Guardians plan their wrath on those who've harmed their kin, Lucas starts to uncover the chilling truth, and finds a vicious immortal who rivals the Huntress herself.

Princess Eva Nicholi of the Shadistin Clan is a survivor, and she's lived with the secret of her father's fight to save her from the Huntress for the last five hundred years. She'll stop at nothing to keep her past buried—along with the bodies she's left in her wake—and as Lucas nears the truth, she knows only one way to protect those she loves—seduce and destroy.

Lucas may escape with his life.
But his heart is another matter altogether.


Family. Honor. Love.
What happens when those three collide?
Who will be left standing?
Who will be left heartbroken?

Halloween in Atlantis, a Poseidon's Warriors story:

A Halloween treat from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Alyssa Day. 
Now that Atlantis has finally risen to take its place on the world stage, the Atlantean warriors are having to face some new and interesting dangers -- like Halloween parties. 

Arrogant warrior Liam doesn't understand the beautiful, bubbly human whose entire function in life appears to be to plan parties, but he can’t seem to keep away from her, either. Jamie, who considers herself to be completely unflappable--the hallmark of a great event planner--doesn't understand why the far-too-serious Atlantean manages to get under her skin with every single encounter. Even if he is the sexiest man she has ever seen.

When the two of them are thrown together to solve a mystery surrounding the queen's stolen jewels, sparks fly, secrets are revealed, and Halloween has never been hotter. 

This novelette (longer than a short story, shorter than a novella, at 53 pages & a little over 16,000 words) is perfect for reading on a coffee break - or in between handing out candy to trick-or treaters.



99 cents

Don't miss the prequel to Deliciously Mated, A Mate's Wish, available now!

As head chef for Lake Haven Lodge, Eagan Masters spends his days cooking warm and hearty meals for his clan and their guests. His nights however, are spent in his cabin, cold and lonely. There's no mating for the big cats. He's accepted it, but no amount of time in the kitchen can keep his heart from craving someone to call his own. When food and other supplies go missing from the lodge, he sets out to reveal the thief. But without a scent to track, he begins to wonder if Lake Haven has a ghost. 

Clara Destacio is a ghost. Not literally, but if you count the way she can sneak into houses, get what she needs, and leave without a trace, she might as well be invisible. Years ago, a tragedy left her seeking solitude. Exchanging her friends, family, and cushy lifestyle for the quiet simplicity of a rough camp in the woods has helped her deal with what happened. But surviving sweltering summers and frigid winters in the Ouachitas means she has to take what she needs from those who have too much.

Clara finds Lake Haven's lodge and the abundance it offers, and realizes she's stumbled onto a gold mine. But when someone starts leaving her food so she won't have to steal, the guilt she's been running from catches up with her.

***Book 1 of the Ouachita Mountain Shifters series, which is a spin-off of the Dirt Track Dogs series. To experience more of these characters, read the prequel, A Mate's Wish, or the Dirt Track Dogs books. 
***Contains adult language and explicit sex scenes. Intended for mature audiences only.

Halloween drinks to die for

I was just sitting here thinking, "Hmmm. What's something fun to blog about for Halloween. And what would people likely be doing besides giving out candy?" 

My first thought, going to parties! LOL Well, whether you're at a party, throwing your own party, or giving out candy, or all of the above, you can add one of these drinks to your celebration and crank it up a notch. Personally, I recommend the Zombie Apocalypse. ;)

1. Zombie Apacolypse

1 1/2 parts Absolut Mandrin
1/2 part Malibu
1 part passion fruit puree
1/2 part white grapefruit juice
3/4 part cinnamon schnaps
2 dashes Perno Absinthe

Pour over crushed ice, top with 1/2 part Cappalletti
Feel free to garnish with body parts. 

2. Polyjuice Potion

I'm sure Harry Potter fans like me will love this one. 
Ingredients should be mixed to taste, and according to how much you want to make.

Lime sherbet
Sprite
Neon green food coloring
Your favorite tequila
Rose's Lime

3. Blood Orange Punch


This one makes enough to serve at a party.

1 cup chilled blood orange juice
4 (12 oz) chilled blackberry sodas
1 cup rum (I recommend The Kracken)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice or Rose's Lime
1 cup fresh blackberries
1 blood orange thinly sliced
Pansies to garnish

Instructions

1. Stir all ingredients together in a large pitcher or punch bowl filled with ice.
2. Add your garnish (and blackberries) and serve immediately.

My readers keep me going

I won't lie, I was having a rough/stressful day today. And then, I decided to take a break and check my email. I got the most wonderful and unexpected letter.

I have asked permission to share excerpts from this letter, but will, of course, maintain the privacy of the reader.

The letter was about Frank and The Werewolf Tamer and the Notte Oscura series. It was from a woman who has, due to physical scars, "always felt like a freak."

She said, "I know it's fiction, and Frank isn't real, but this story has inspired me more than words can say. These people are real to me and even though we haven't met, so are you. Your words made me feel like ... NOT a freak, for the first time in a long time. So, thank you, author I've never met who I hope doesn't think I'm crazy. I appreciate your words."

I cried. Okay, I freaking UGLY cried for about 10 minutes.

I needed to hear this so much. And I am so glad to know that I was able to help someone else. It does my heart good to know that I helped improve the way someone feels about themselves. Naturally, I expressed all of this to her and assured her that I do NOT think she's crazy. I think she is brave for opening up like this to a complete stranger. And I think she is amazing for having the courage to be honest with herself.

You guys matter to me. Each and every one of you. Don't ever doubt that. And please, never hesitate to reach out to me. I will always make the time to respond, because you and what you have to say is important to me.

I am going to save this letter and read it again on days when I wonder if I'm any good at this whole writing thing. I will read it on days when I wonder why I keep going. But most of all, I will read it on days when I feel like a freak.

A Werewolf Cowboy Boxed Set and A Demon In Print

Hi, everyone :)

Sorry for the slight delay in posts. I live in the sticks and I had a disruption in my internet service. But, the good news is this hasn't kept me from writing a new book that will be out this fall called Bloodlines. It has a slight twist on my usual werewolf tales.

After I finish editing Bloodlines, I'll begin working on the second Tris Grima book, Bite of Frost. I've had lots of questions about this new series and I am so grateful that it has been well-received. Rest assured, I haven't forgotten about Tris Grima and her hot gargoyle. **( Though the titles won't be out until this fall, I've uploaded the cover art below so you'll know what to look for.)**

And as always, I'm happy to have you here. Feel free to share this blog with your paranormal loving friends. I'd be glad to have them here as well.

NEW STUFF THIS MONTH

From New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author Tracey H. Kitts

**The complete There’s No Place series is now available in one boxed set!**

Kate thought the hardest part of returning to her hometown would be facing her ex, Gerry. After all, she left him the day before their wedding. Turns out the hardest part was learning that he is now engaged to someone else. Oh, and somewhere in the past six years, he became a werewolf.

As if things weren’t complicated enough, she just broke up with her own fiancé, the man she left with in the first place.
Jacob Warner has done everything within his power to maintain magical control over Kate, but his hold over her is beginning to lose strength, no matter what he does.

Kate’s heart yearns for the past she cannot reclaim, and the man she left behind. As the expression goes, there’s no place like home.

Warning: This series contains some graphic language, and violence. There will be a happy ending.

**The Eternal Kiss is available in print for the very first time.**

When Selina summons a demon to fulfill her desires, she wants a night of passion with no strings attached. The only problem with that is she has accidentally summoned one of the seven princes of Hell. Asmodeus is more than capable of satisfying any desire, however, he is bound by a curse. And thanks to Selina's spell, he is now bound to her as well ... at least until her desires are fulfilled.

What I'm working on right now

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. I'm really starting to suck at this blogging thing. LOL

Anyway, I've had some people asking about what I'm working on and what's in my schedule next. I thought I'd just do a post here and answer as many questions as I can. 








Right at this very moment (notes scattered all over my desk) I'm working on a re-release. Constant Cravings was previously with Ellora's Cave. As of Dec. 31, 2016, my rights to all my titles still published with EC will revert to me. Constant Cravings is one of those titles. I always wanted to do a bit more with this book, and I wanted it to be called Shaman's Touch. So, when it is re-released it will likely be expanded and it will definitely have its original title, Shaman's Touch. :) I will make a note in the books' description for Amazon and other vendors that it is a re-release and list the previous title.



Shaman's Touch is more than just a re-release though. It is the launch for my new series Unseelie of Atlanta. Each book will have some returning characters, but will tell the story of a different couple (or maybe a menage, I don't know yet. lol) kind of like my Notte Oscura series. So, in that respect they are standalone, but they do also tie together loosely.

At the moment I am working on notes for what a lot of people call the "series bible." That way I can keep everything straight. I've already started work on book two in this series. It will be called Wounded Heart and it will feature a really unique shifter. Other than that I don't have many details for you, sorry. 

Shaman's Touch is on my schedule for July 2017. Wounded Heart is on my schedule for Jan. 2019. Yes, I know that's a long time, but I've got a lot going on in between.

I've also begun making notes on a third book, Lord of Frost. However, notes are as far as that one has gotten. Lord of Frost is on my schedule for Dec. 2019.

I've gotten a few questions about the Tris Grima series. Book one in this brand new series (Love me HARD) is currently exclusive to the boxed set Taming the Vampire. I will release Love me HARD as a single title before I release book two. Book two currently does not have a title. Love me HARD is, for the moment, on my schedule for October, 2018 to be released as a single title. That may change depending on how quickly I'm able to prepare the re-releases I've got coming up and write the second Tris Grima book. 

It's awesome that so many people have enjoyed this first book and I'm excited that you all want more. There will be more. I promise. I'm just not certain of an exact date yet.

Also on my schedule is a shifter story for an anthology project coming up in Oct. 2017. So far I have some drafted that might become a standalone book or it might be a novella that works well for the anthology. It really depends on how much I write. LOL If the word count is right for the antho, then that's where it will be. If not, the story titled Bloodlines will be out in April, 2019. 

Soon I will be working on 4 other titles for re-release. These books will be out between 2017 and early 2020.  I know some people think that re-release means you just put them back out there and they don't understand why this takes so long. LOL Because that's not what I do. These books will be re-formatted, new covers will be made (which I've already done YAY!), they might (very likely) be expanded, and they will go to the editor once again. 

One of these re-release titles that was a very short story written to the publishers word count specifications MIGHT be expanded into a novella. I'm not sure, but I'd really like to if I have the time. So, no promises, but I might be doing this.

I will also be releasing some recently finished series into boxed sets, and catching up on formatting and putting books into print. I know some people have been patiently waiting for all of my titles to be available in print. I appreciate you and I am working on it.

Well, I think that pretty much sums it up. I've been very, very busy, and I will have more to come soon. Just think, this doesn't even begin to cover my also busy personal life. Holy shit, right? lol

Taking a break, body surfing, and a new release

I've been working very hard to get ahead of schedule and STAY THERE. Why? So I can have a little bit of time off, like normal people. LOL That's a thing still right? It's been so long since I've had a true break, I've forgotten.

Here's my idea of a "break." I've got new releases written ahead, already edited, formatted, cover art done, and ready to go. I've done this all the way through summer 2018. Yes, you read that correctly. That way, I'm not writing my butt off every second and I can have an opportunity for new and wonderful stories to come to mind. :)

However, during that time I don't exactly get to rest. I'm still working on getting those releases out, sending newsletters, and maintaining my website (which needs to be checked about once a week for software updates). 

This "break" that's been going on for only about a month has given me time to catch up on my yards, spend more time with my family, and plant a massive pumpkin garden with my dad. :) 

I've also been going to the beach as much as possible and body surfing, despite getting 10 jellyfish stings the time before last. LOL Yes, you read that correctly too. These weren't the big deadly ones, just the little ones that sting like a beyotch and leave purple bruises. But I still caught those waves, so jellyfish can suck it. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Oh, I also have a new book up for pre-order.

Of all the stories I've ever written, Frank and The Werewolf Tamer has received the most requests for a sequel. I'm pleased that I finally got a chance to fulfill those requests. Night Touch tells the story of a brand new character, Rosalie. It also gets us a little closer to a fan favorite, Kurtis, the Dracula impersonator. And for those who've loved the Lilith Mercury series, there are a few cameo appearances in this one. 

Night Touch officially releases September 2, 2016.





This is Book Two in the Notte Oscura series. Each book in this series is a standalone story with returning characters.

Rosalie's psychic abilities have significantly changed her life. Skin against skin contact gives her visions, which sometimes includes the untimely death of those she touches. Fortunately for her, these abilities do not work on vampires.

NOTE: This story contains graphic language, sex, and violence.
