Fire Fall is out today! It’s only 99c and exclusive to Amazon – which means it’s free to read for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. So if you know any of them, please tell them!
Vanessa Araya is not hiding! She’s trying to find herself after the terror of being kidnapped six months ago. Who is she when her trust in people has been stripped away? How can she be free and brave and in love with life when a little part of her is always looking over her shoulder? Being the daughter of a billionaire hurts in unique ways.
Seth Bentham fell for Vanessa three years ago, and walked away. He’s a wizard mercenary: lethal, magical and in deep in a dangerous world. He would have only brought Vanessa pain. Now he’s hunting the southern Rocky Mountains for a kidnapped barrier wizard; not to save the man, but to learn more about the plot that involves him. The very last person Seth expects to stumble over while hiking is Vanessa, but here she is, strong, scared that she’s broken, and his.
This time, Seth won’t walk away.
But the price of stealing time together is high. Old enemies and new threats lurk in the mountains. There are fantastical creatures and there is the racing, hungry inferno of wildfire. Before the Fourth of July explodes in fireworks, someone will die.

Kindle Unlimited Discoveries
If you’ve been reading my books and posts for a while, you’ve probably guessed that I love shifter romances. So it’s cool to see that the exciting conclusion to Alicia Montgomery’s True Mate series has just released. Tempted by the Wolf has a lone wolf heroine and a warlock hero. The world needs more non-evil warlocks! 😉
Larkspur, or a Necromancer’s Romance by V. M. Jaskiernia is an historical paranormal romance novella, and not as dark as the “necromancer” in the title might have you believe. Enjoy! (For those not subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, it’s only 99c – or less than that in American currency, I think).
Thieves’ Honor by Jamaila Brinkley charmingly combines a Regency romance with magic. Delightful..
Fire Fall Excerpt
The wildfire in Fire Fall isn’t confined to the mountains! Sexy excerpt ahead 😉
Desire and delight spiraled through Vanessa as Seth hovered over her. Through her hand on his chest, she could feel his heart beating heavily. He’d braced himself over her. There was no weight, no cage…no demand. Only, he kissed her with hope and aching promise. His lips were warm and smooth, gliding against hers; coaxing her to respond.
It was a seduction and so much more.
Her fingers curled in his t-shirt, and he seemed to take that as a signal. He lifted her as he lay back on the sofa. It was long enough for him to stretch out and to cuddle her over him. She was free to end the kiss at any time, but until she did, his hand ran the length of her spine, caressing and claiming. His other hand cupped the back of her head, holding her tenderly for his kiss.
The flavor of him was hot chocolate and male desire, rich and drugging.
It could have escalated. Experiencing the tenderness of a strong man was a powerful aphrodisiac. Vanessa felt protected and desired. She was safe to simply be in the moment, to let all the everyday tensions go to enjoy one tension, the thrilling demand of passion.
She was free because Seth kept the intensity contained.
Finally, he guided her head down to his shoulder and she lay there, luxuriating in their closeness, soothed yet kept simmering by the slow caress of his hand on the small of her back.
There was no need for words.
