Books with New Looks!

If you are subscribed to my newsletter, you’ve already seen these and I hope you loved them as much as I do.

If, however, you are not subscribed, then here’s your chance to see them and hear the news.

Five of the seven books once published with Samhain Publishing are being re-published with Entangled Publishing! (One self published title as well).

There is going to be a mass re-release of older Samhain Publishing titles on August 21, 2017 so be sure to mark your calendars so you can get any of the ones you may have missed!

So, without further rambling from me, here are the new covers to my books and the revised and updated blurbs, along with the links to Amazon. I’ll gather the other vendor links later today and start adding them to the books pages here on the website through the weekend.

 

Blue Jeans and Hard Hats. Book 1 

When Buck finds Caroline looking lost and confused in the local hardware store, this owner of a successful contracting company is ready to play simple handyman and get as hands on as the lady will allow.

Caroline is starting over. Her less-than-blissful marriage to the local golden boy is over, and she’s declared her independence by starting her own business, making time to take road trips…and having her nipples pierced. Once her house is fixed up enough so she can sell it, she’ll be completely done with her old life. Luckily, Buck is ready to show her his skills with a hammer and drill.

But Caroline’s plans for a life of independence might go up in flames when toys like floggers and clamps are brought into play…

 

Blue Jeans and Hard Hats, Book 2 

Rosie loves food. She loves serving it in her small town diner and writing about it in her blog. Her life is full, happy, and uncomplicated, until a large tree limb crashes through her house roof during a storm, and sexy roofer Decker and his tool belt become a tempting complication. Rosie’s not used to being vulnerable, so the idea of Decker behind her with a strip of leather in his hand shouldn’t be turning her on as much as it is.

Decker’s not put off by the prickly woman whose roof he’s fixing. In fact, the more prickly she gets, the more he wants her and turns on the charm. After a few hotter-than-hot kisses, Decker is more than willing to give her every red stripe she’s begging for. Now and forever.

 

Blue Jeans and Hard Hats, Book 3 

Cort is in Blue Ridge for a job. He plans to catch up with old friends and enjoy the challenge of rewiring a plantation home for a new client. What he didn’t plan for was running into the woman he had an explosive one-night stand with five years ago.

Blue can’t believe the man who’s come to fix her wiring is the same one she met in a Savannah riverfront bar five years ago. Memories of that hot night together still cause tremors, but the chill in his eyes reminds her how that night ended, how she left him to wake up alone the next morning.

But this time, Blue has nowhere to run. Heated words and some angry sex should be the end of it all. But this kind of heat isn’t extinguished easily.

 

Twisted Up 

Firefighter and part-time bartender Justin knows exactly what he wants, but the woman who healed and captured his heart has started cancelling on him, and he can’t figure out why.

Ella might be friendly, funny, and at ease in a room full of strangers, but she’s shy at heart, and she can’t shake old insecurities and the feeling that the end to her relationship with Justin is undoubtedly just around the corner.

Just when Ella starts thinking she should probably end it now and save herself some heartbreak, Justin shows up at her door with a length of rope and a naughty proposition. If she’ll dare to give them a shot, he’ll show her just how good it could be between them.

 

The Bar Next Door. Book 1 

Ever since Malachi’s best friend Daniel confessed to being gay, Malachi’s wondered if their friendship could ever cross over into something more. But he’s never been brave enough to take the steps to find out.

Daniel has always been in love with Malachi. But telling his best friend is too risky. Their friendship is the only relationship that’s ever really mattered to him, and he couldn’t handle it if he lost them both.

Courage doesn’t come easy when the stakes are this high, and it’s going to take a leap of faith before these cowboys get their happily ever after.

 

The Bar Next Door, Book 2 

Just before Eli’s lover died, he made Eli promise he’d find love again. Five years have passed, but Eli’s no closer to fulfilling that promise. He doesn’t think he’ll ever find love and that kind of happiness again. If only he didn’t have to face a part-time employee and full-time pain the ass by the name of Asa at work…

Asa knows what he wants when he sees it. And what he wants is to banish the ghosts lurking in Eli’s haunted gaze and drag his sinfully handsome boss back to life. This young cowboy has the persistence and the mouth to get his man. Eli’s grumpy, prickly defenses don’t stand a chance.

Again, I’ll be adding links to the other vendors this weekend, so if you buy from Barnes and Noble or Kobo or Google, etc…

Yes, there are many other books to be re-released, but it’s a start!

Music Monday – Imagine Dragons: Demons

This is for my son who turned 18 yesterday…

He has always been about music that moves him and touches him. No one he goes to school with listens to what he does, be it Imagine Dragons, RED, Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, etc… He’s always been his own person, with his own mind. He doesn’t follow the crowd. He’s not about what’s popular or the fad of the day.

When you’re a person like that, you don’t fit in. You’re always on the outside. And I’m so proud of him for being strong enough in himself, to stand on the outside and not care that he’s not part of the in…

Music Monday – Harry Styles: Sign of the Times

I’m going to confess something here. I was shocked and amazed and completely speechless after watching Harry Styles’ performance on Saturday Night Live a week or so ago. His song Sign of the Times has been stuck in my head ever since. As I was working on this post and went to grab the clip from SNL for today, I found the following performance from a few days ago and decided to use it instead.

I honestly don’t know what it it is, but I’m in love with this song. I truly am. And his personality on stage singing makes the song that much more addictive to me.

I wasn’t a One Direction fan. I knew some songs, but not many. I liked the ones I knew, but I wouldn’t say I was a fan by any stretch. I can, however, definitely see myself being a Harry Styles fan if the rest of his solo album is as soulful as this particular song.

Music Monday – Lady Gaga: Million Reasons

I’ve been listening to a lot of different music lately. And when I say different, I mean, I’m all over the place. I haven’t gotten crazy, but I’ve been stepping into alternate comfort zones with what I’m listening to and what I’m searching for…

Lady Gaga is one of those alternates and differents for me and I’m really enjoying a lot of her music, the older stuff and her new stuff. Her range, her presence, her personality, her fearlessness, her incredible depth and talent…

There are multiple performances of this song and it was hard to pick just one to share, but I did it… I went with the official video.

Let’s Talk Bear Shifters…

Because there seems to be some confusion.

In the beginning of Bear Haven, I said this: The ride in general isn’t over, but the ride in the Southern Shifters Kindle World, for me, is. At least for these characters. At least for the foreseeable future.

So, lets clarify some things. YES, Gus and Bex are over, but ONLY in the Southern Shifters Kindle World. I had to do what I did. I had to end Bear Haven as I ended it BECAUSE in order to tell the bigger story… to weave other characters in from other series, to connect some other dots into it all, I had to move Gus and Bex, Michael and Maxine, and other supporting characters OUT of the Southern Shifters Kindle World. (Remember… the Southern Shifters Kindle World does not belong to me and as such, there are limitations to what I can and cannot do.)

The Black and White series is, for the time being, done. I said that too (look above). I may go back and write another one. But only after I finish all the other tie ins.

Gus and Bex will be starting over. Elsewhere.

Michael and Maxine will be getting their own book.

Marcel and Mari will be getting their own book.

And ALL of these will be linked, loosely, but linked nonetheless with my Denali Heat bears which I just got the rights back to.

Keep in mind, as well, as I said in the back of Bear Haven, that none of these stories will be coming until either late 2017 or early 2018. I am sorry you have to wait, but other things happened (Samhain Publishing closing), that forced plans to be altered.

But, to reiterate… There are reasons I did what I did. I have mentioned it before Bear Haven came out AND after Bear Haven came out.

Please if you still have questions, ask me. I’m happy to answer them.
