Liz Jekyll might be the most wanted wolf-were in London—wanted for dating, that is—but she doesn’t take it as a compliment. In fact, it’s a wretched nuisance because Liz has a vital secret to hide. What she needs is a disinterested wolf-were who could pretend to be her boyfriend.

Carson Erving would be very interested in Liz if it weren’t for Gentiana Aeternae. The botanist wolf-were from Alabama has found the legendary Elixir Gentian, and ruthless people will do anything, kill anyone, to get their hands on a plant that can grant an extra hundred years of life.

As danger explodes around them, two very independent wolf-weres will have to do the unthinkable and rely on one another. But when Liz’s secret is revealed, who will die?

Dragon Knight, kindle unlimited paranormal romance,

Don’t forget! Dragon Knight is out Feb 27 and available for pre-order now!

Dragon knight Gina Sidhe serves Earth’s only resident dragon, and she’s been issued with a quest. She must return with Lewis Bennett, President of The Collegium (the world’s magical order of peacekeepers), so that he may learn the Deeper Path of Magic from the dragon. A path that has been denied to Gina, and one she desperately wants.

But Lewis isn’t interested. He knows his magic has gone, burned out amid a terrible tragedy. Which makes his current task all the harder. He must restructure and repurpose The Collegium in the wake of a shocking and sly demon attack. He doesn’t have time for Gina’s quest, until she offers him the one thing he can’t have: a hidden route out of his Collegium life.

Because Lewis has his own quest, one secret and lethal, to save the world from a threat no one else believes in.

Djinn Justice – New Release!

Djinn Justice is live! If you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read the latest Collegium series novel free now. If you’re looking to buy the book, you can save its 99c price by waiting to pick it up free Friday – Sunday (Dec 11-13, 2015, on Amazon’s American time). Djinn Justice is a stand alone novel, although Fay and Steve’s adventures begin in the paranormal romance novella, Demon Hunter.

kindle Unlimited, pnr, paranormal romance, urban fantasy,

From the cold of Siberia to the Mountains of the Moon, Fay and Steve are involved in an epic battle against evil enslaving people’s souls. If a person’s dream essence is stolen, so is their future.

Fay Olwen is still adjusting to life as one of a couple. She never expected to have a sexy leopard-were cuddling her at midnight in his huge bed in his gorgeous villa on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. But here she is, in love and in luck—finally! There’s not a demon in sight.

Pity she can’t say the same about the invading djinn.

As romantic plans are scuttled, Fay discovers she has a lot to learn about her new lover. Steve Jekyll isn’t simply the lethal mercenary she thought him. He’s also heir to the Suzerainty, the ancient order that delivers justice for all weres.

Steve hoped he’d have more time to reveal the many aspects of his complicated life to Fay; not least, his family. But with a rogue mage teaming up with a power-mad jackal-were to enslave innocent people, Steve hasn’t got time for tact. His family are just going to have to deal with the fact that his chosen mate isn’t a were. She is, in fact, their total and feared opposite: a mage.

Let the adventure begin!

Nearly 2016

Tomorrow is release day for Djinn Justice, a full year after the first Collegium novella released last December. It’s been a busy year.

tkcsmallI’ve published five sweet short romances that together make up the Texas Kisses Collection.

Escape Publishing brought out three more short Australian coastal romances and bundled them with two of my other short stories to create Love, Coast-to-Coast.

Emptysmall In April, I released a literary novella, Empty, as my something different in 2015. Its cover is one of my favourites.

Ainslie Paton coordinated a fun anthology of short stories by Escape Publishing authors that is free everywhere but Amazon (because Amazon is still being stubborn about setting it free), and I had great fun writing Luke’s story for it. What a kiss! Welcome to Cafe Nix.

Beyond Regeneration let me explore “what if…?” and showcase one of the most beautiful places in Australia. Science fiction should always push boundaries, whether they’re emotional, mental or physical.

Finally, I published Sky Garden which occupied so much of my attention this year and which I love. If I could move to the Horry Museum, I probably would! Although Nick’s family home is pretty awesome, too — a Tudor stone manor house.

And I think I forgot to mention another short coastal romance, Light Kisses, set on Australia’s east coast.

All of which probably explains why I’m tired!

dragonknightcIn 2016 I’ll have fewer releases, but they’ll be novel length (mostly). First up, is Dragon Knight. And I’m currently turning over ideas for I Stole An Island. Boldt Castle won’t feature in the book in any way, but it’s one of the fascinating places my research has uncovered. Has anyone been there? It’s on an island, one of the 1000 Islands, between Canada and the United States.

 

Science Fiction & Fantasy 99c Deals this Weekend!

Release Day: Sky Garden

Sky Garden is live! Transport yourselves to the rooftops of London, to a world of mystery and love.

sky garden, kindle scout, kindle scout promotion,
On the rooftops of London, you can be anyone.

A year ago, Lanie Briers escaped a serial killer. She grew up in a theatre family and her act was mediumship, but not anymore. Life, now, is a hidden retreat above a quirky Bloomsbury museum, where she waits and watches.

Nick Tawes is an unexpected intrusion. He’s a landscape architect filming a television series on roof gardens, and he intends to build one in Lanie’s aerial territory. He has his own demons, old family troubles, that lure Lanie out of her refuge and into living again.

But as summer progresses and the sky garden grows, Lanie’s enemy is closing in—because some secrets must go to the grave.

Sky Garden, romantic suspense, kindle unlimited,

Sky Garden is 99c on Amazon or free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

Nominate SKY GARDEN for Kindle Scout

Have you heard of Kindle Scout? It’s where you help a book get published. Please, nominate “Sky Garden” for publication, and if Kindle Scout picks it up, you’ll get a free digital copy on release. Thank you!

So, that’s the short version. Here’s the longer version of what I’m up to and why I need your help.

Kindle Scout has been around about a year, but only fairly recently opened up to accepting submissions from Australians. I’ve been looking at it and nominating some books for publication that appealed to me. I have to admit, I like that when the Kindle Scout editors agree with my choices and accept a book for publication in the program, I’ll receive a free digital copy. More books!

Originally, I wrote Sky Garden with a view to using it as bait to hook myself a literary agent. However, that process requires a whole lot of time, patience and luck, and I’m bursting to get Sky Garden into readers’ hands (or onto their kindles). So after intense um’ing and ah’ing, I’ve submitted Sky Garden to Kindle Scout.

For 30 days, Sky Garden will be at the mercy of fickle fate — or rather, out there, trying to gather enough nominations for publication that the Kindle Scout editors agree and sign the book up to be edited, published and promoted by their program. For authors curious as to what I’ve signed up to, this is the Kindle Scout Agreement.

As part of the submission process, the blurb for Sky Garden had to be shrunk to 500 characters. That’s quite a challenge.

Lanie Briers used to perform as a medium, before a serial killer kidnapped her. Now she hides above a quirky Bloomsbury museum because the killer might be dead, but his evil haunts her.

Nick Tawes is filming a TV series on roof gardens. He intends to build one in Lanie’s rooftop retreat. The illegitimate son of British aristocracy, he fights his own demons.

As summer progresses and the sky garden grows, secrets are revealed. But someone is watching, and he’ll kill to bury forever one final truth.

But I met the challenge!

So far, the Kindle Scout process — or rather, preparing for it — has been fun. I’m happy to answer any questions, and will report back on how things go. Nominations close November 21, 2015.

If you have an Amazon account, nominating Sky Garden for publication is as simple as clicking its Kindle Scout page, and then, clicking the blue “Nominate Me” button. Please, do. I appreciate your kindness enormously.
