New #Book #coverart from @SecretCravings – #paranormal Romance and #menage

Got the latest cover art from Secret Cravings Publishing for my first release from them on October 10th, 2013.

His Reign


Józsi wants to maintain a normal life away from the Opeth pack.  Moving from Hungary to Texas was a big change that he felt was necessary in order to avoid a prophecy that would ultimately make him Alpha of a dying pack, a responsibility he doesn’t want.

Ilona and Lukina grew up loving Józsi even after he moved away.  Yet the current pack Alpha has gone rogue and begun kidnapping and abusing the younger wolves that remained without mates.  Ilona, becomes his next target and Józsi must return to once again deal with pack politics only to find that his heart misses what it could have.  Can Lukina and Ilona convince him to return to Hungary in order to rule the Opeth pack and mate or will Kiba destroy them in a fit of insanity?

There WILL be an excerpt shortly along with a few more blog stops for potential chances to win copies when the book drops!

Question for Readers on BDSM and Stories

Working on ENDANGERED and Separated Self, I realized that the books started out with obvious D/s when I brought in Livia and forced her onto Josef.  Not that she needed forcing, heh heh.

The thing I realized early on is that the plot encompassed the D/s dynamic but only briefly.  There were still villains who interrupted what would normally be a natural order of things, IF Josef would submit to his Vampire Queen and IF she weren’t…having issues of her own in the second full length novel.

I’ve somehow created a poly relationship of sorts with the characters in the Nights of Lust series.

Here’s the breakdown (which will go on the Novels in Progress page soon)

Nights of Lust – A small group of unlikely heroes faces an entire Criminal Organization for the fate

of the World while discovering true love.

Endangered As a rogue cop, Josef Staganov is attempting to bring down The Syndicate, a large crime organization wreaking havoc on San Francisco.  Sensing his imminent death, he swears to take them out and provide just a little more safety to this world until they get him hooked on the dangerous drug LS-13 that’s being pushed on the streets turns him into an addict.

For the last few hundred years, vampire Livia Illona and her lover have sought after the man who can renew her soul, finally settling on his signal in America.  Becoming The Queen of the Night, she ruled over San Francisco until The Syndicate forced her into smaller and smaller territory.  Finding Josef became a blessing in disguise as power combined would help her with her true immediate goal, the reclaiming of her lover’s son.

Can she pull him out of his suicidal phase to show him his true power and convince him to help her recover Isabella’s son, or will The Syndicate win this round and continue spreading their violent ways?

Separated Self – Unable to deal with his new found powers, Josef must venture to Hungary in order to learn from the oldest wolf pack in the world.  Through violence, pack upheaval disrupts the flow of life, bringing a new enemy to the pack and forcing Josef to grow even faster.

In her continued struggle, Kissa finds a hero in Josef and a lover once it’s made clear that his rightful place is Alpha of her pack.  Only she senses the true power in his heart, but his destructive behavior confuses her until a surprise voice helps guide them back to America to resume the fight.

Will Josef learn what it means to be a true hero with love at his side, or will his inability to separate himself from himself be his undoing, and that of the pack’s?

There’s a third book I’m editing now that picks up with Istvan, and his lover.  The plot continues with the theme of eliminating The Syndicate, but the stakes rise (pun intended) as threats grow heavier and each character must learn to deal with not just their own weight but the weight of those around them.

It’s a series of growth and overcoming those dark moments of the soul.  I may try to keep the focus on BDSM used properly.  Hell, to be honest, I intended to usurp the ever talented Laurel K. Hamilton with this series AND end the books where they should but I got sidetracked by other pursuits.  Years ago.

Romance Novel Review: Killing Moon by Rebecca York


Killing Moon By Rebecca York

Buy from Amazon for Kindle

“KILLING MOON (ISBN: 0425190714, Berkley Sensation, June 2003). introduces Ross Marshall, my werewolf detective. He’s on the trail of a serial killer, who shoots him at the beginning of the story. Out of his mind with an infected bullet wound, he’s treated by a beautiful young doctor, Megan Sheridan. He’s drawn to Megan–and she to him–yet he’s vowed never to pass on his werewolf genes. As he becomes more intimately involved with Megan, she helps him figure out his genetic heritage. But the killer turns his attention on them. And Ross finds he must reveal his violent nature to Megan if he wants to save her. The setting is always important to my books. KILLING MOON takes place in the DC area because that’s where I live, and I also felt that setting a story here adds extra cachet.”

This was one of the first paranormal romances I’d ever actually read and part of what got me hooked into the world of wolf shifters.  I wanted to write like this and to tell tales of hot, angsty alpha men and seductive women.  And Rebecca’s characters deliver the goods here that I’ve used sort of as a bible to how I write my wolves.

The book itself has tight writing, an intriguing plot and of course steamy sex.  Vividness of images and characters make this a book and world you want to stay in more and more. It wasn’t the first book I read of the series, that was Crimson Moon which I picked up solely based on the awesome cover.  I’ll review that later.  Right now I’m aiming for paranormal readers here to see what I’ve read back in the day!

I know it’s an older book but I was going through my collection and realized I still had a ton of books I have read but never talked about.  So this is a combination of a book review and a little history about your humble author ;)

For those interested in MY first wolf story, Wolf Magic can be found on Amazon for Kindle
