Bad, Bad Girlfriend

BadBadGirlfriend2 600

Jolene Ledbetter is a big, beautiful woman with an even bigger heart. But she’s figured out that she’s become her studly, police officer boyfriend’s favorite doormat. Having put off the conversation she knows has to happen after his partner was shot, she’s ready now to tell him to “pee or get off the pot”—after a bout of really great sex, that is.

Gabriel Devine has seen what his profession does to marriages. He’s not willing to risk that kind of heartbreak—not for himself or a wife who might have to face the possibility of getting that dreadful visit from the police chief. Besides, he likes what he has with Jolene. She’s pretty, funny, likes to cook the occasional meal, is ready at the drop of a hat for a little hot loving—but she’s sensible and knows he can’t give her anything more than that. So when Jolie tells him she won’t see him any more if he’s not willing to marry her, he’s shocked and angry.

With a girlfriend’s encouragement, Jolene arranges a special show at a strip club to prove to Gabe once and for all that she’s more woman than any man can handle, and if he’s not careful she’ll walk her pretty new Louboutins right out of his life.

A Top 100 Kindle World Romance!

BetweenaSEALandaHardPlace 600

Between a SEAL and a Hard Place made it to #3 on the Kindle World romance list! THANK YOU! And one lovely reader said this:

A really good story about communication, compromise, respect, and teamwork between a devoted married couple.

The last person world-class sniper, Wolf Kinkaid, expected to see in the cross hairs of his rifle during an operation to take down a drug cartel assassin was his pretty, bounty hunter wife. He takes the shot, disarming the bad guy, but the assassin wasn’t working alone, and now, Piper is a target for revenge.

Solution? The two of them hole up in a safe house while his team tries to find the assassin’s psychotic brother. Piper and Wolf have issues to resolve, and all that time alone gives them something they haven’t enjoyed in excess for a while—each other. But while they get close, the enemy closes in…

Brand new SEAL story! (Contest)
Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

I’m on vacation, so trying to get out the word is problematic! I hate using that little touch pad on my laptop. :) But I wanted to let you know about the brand new story I have out that is part of Susan Stoker’s Kindle World!

It’s a novelette, and just under 12,000 words, but it’s a continuation, the “what happens after the Happy Ever After” story that was Through Her Eyes. You can read it as a standalone, but you might want to read Wolf’s and Piper’s other story first. Warning! It’s very, very sexy…

Well, here it is! I hope you love it! It’s just $1.99, so it won’t break your pocket book!

Ready for some sexy bedtime stories? Here’s Ultra Strokes!
Saturday, November 19th, 2016

As you’re reading this, I’m still driving toward Virginia. We left yesterday. We, being my daughter and a carload of kids ranging from 12 to 3. By now (I’m writing this in advance, so I’m imaging it), we’re all deaf from constantly shouting, “Be Quiet!” Funny how that works, shouting for quiet. But we’re better prepared than that, so hopefully, that won’t be the case. We brought tons of DVDs for the kids to watch. Anyways…I hope you have a fantastic holiday week coming up. I have great guests who will keep you entertained. Are you doing anything special for the Thanksgiving holiday? And not to leave you non-USAers out, What are your plans for this weekend?!

Dear Readers and Friends,

I’ve assembled twelve of my very best short stories in a single compilation. They range from 5,000 words to 8,000 words each. All are ultra sexy, hence the title! When I return from vacation, one of my first orders of business will be getting the book ready for print! Yes! I know that some of you still prefer to hold paper in your hands, so I’m going to the extra effort to have it printed!

I wish you all a very happy holiday! If you’re looking for something fun to read when you’re finished basting that turkey…

Over 200 pages of sexy goodness!

This is a $7.89 savings if your were to buy each story individually!

HardSEALToLove 600

Hard SEAL to Love
Uncharted SEALs, Book 9
Coming February 7, 2017!

Former SEAL, “Big Mac” McLane, is sure he earned all kinds of bad karma somewhere when his first mission with Charter Group is guarding the “Love Boat” and its activity director. Okay, so the cruise line is sponsoring a special cruise for wounded soldiers and their families—a great cause—but Big Mac doesn’t do well around families and children, and Kylie Hammond is cute, but he feels like he has two left feet whenever she’s around. But he’s going to do his job, keep it strictly business, fade into the background whenever she’s around, but it seems Kylie has other ideas…

Kylie knows the big SEAL isn’t exactly gung-ho for his new assignment, but she can’t be more pleased. The big man’s the yummiest thing she’s ever seen, and coaxing blushes and glares from him becomes her favorite sport. But then things begin to go wrong aboard ship, people disappear, and then someone’s killed. The thing her charity most feared—a terrorist attack at sea—appears to be underway. Now, she has to trust Big Mac and his team to keep her wounded soldiers safe.

Crazy Times For More Than Just Election Day… And Sara And Hunter Are Back!
Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

sso10-meme

Today’s the day! For us Americans, anyway. I, for one, will miss SNL’s weekly take on campaign shenanigans, but I won’t miss the constant nastiness. I’m like Rodney King: Can we all get along? Maybe we can after we settle into our new world tomorrow, whichever way it leans. This morning, I’ll be showering then heading to out to vote with my dd. We could have done early voting, which I would have preferred, but my dd prefers making a day of it. She loves the whole process. Guess I raised her right. She cares. Always has. We’ve watched the news every day together, dissected all the scandals, although we’ve known from the start who we’re putting our faith in.

I’m more than just a little tired today. I think I mentioned my grandma came home from rehab after breaking her back. My dd is her morning caregiver—giving her a bath, dressing her, administering her pills, straightening her room. My mother, my aunt, and I share all the other times. The past two nights I’ve slept on the couch so I can listen for her to ring her bell when she needs to make those all night potty breaks. So, I’m tired and grouchy. This is all part of our new normal in the Devlin house.

And I’m trying to do NaNoWriMo, but falling horribly behind already. I’m hoping that after the excitement today (we’ll be watching the returns—it’s a great excuse for a party, don’t you think?), I can get back to some heavy page counts so I can catch up.

But in the meantime, I have another shorty ready for you to devour. So many of you wrote that you wanted more of Sara and Hunter and his SEAL Team buds, that I’ve written a sequel. I hope you love it. I hope you want more, because I’m ready to take them some very fun places…

 Stepbrothers Stepping Out: With His SEAL TEAM, Part 2

sowithhissealteam2_600

Sharing my life with three virile Navy SEALs would be exhausting for most girls. But I’m not most girls. They’re high-drive, high T guys, competitive as hell, and I’m the one who reaps the rewards when they’re ready to blow off a little steam. I’m Sara. I belong to Hunter. Our relationship is a little complicated…

Happy Halloween With A Glance Back At October & A Look Toward November!
Monday, October 31st, 2016

Dear Readers and Friends,

Happy Halloween!

Tonight, I’ll be making the rounds of the local churches, the downtown haunted alley, then trailing five little monsters through neighborhoods as they giddily assault front doors in search of candy. Whee!

I love Halloween. I love how much the little ones love it, too! And we always do a Halloween picture, something appropriately scary. This year, we’re heading to the gates of the cemetery for a great spooky background.

Can you believe the year has flown so fast? I’m already prepping for 2017. Through Rose’s Colored Glasses, I’ll be leading a Mind Mapping workshop in November, and then the annual Write 50 Books a Year workshop the next month. Both are free and my way of giving back to the writing community.

In November, I’ll have new books coming. Take a look at the yummy covers! But first, see October’s new releases, just in case you missed something. All the new releases are free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers. And if you have time, reviews are very much appreciated!

Vampire Quentin Albermarle’s wife, Darcy, lies in a coma after being savaged by a werewolf. Fearing she might never awaken, or worse, that she will return a maddened beast, Quentin returns to the Cayman Islands seeking help from the one woman who might be able to save her.

A century and a half ago, this powerful vampire and witch seduced Quentin with magic and turned him into a vampire to provide herself a mate, but he freed himself from her spell and fled her influence, knowing he’d left behind a powerful enemy. Returning now, seeking Kamaria’s help, he must resist her attempts to enslave him again. However, the price she demands may cause him to lose the woman he loves.

His touch makes her burn…

Troy Barlow wasn’t looking for love when he competed in the Texas Tough Firefighting Competition, but one feisty little blonde caught his attention and wouldn’t let go. The more she tried to deflect him, the more determined he became to make an impression, until he did something she couldn’t possibly ignore.

The last thing Diana Boyle expected to feel was attraction for another firefighter. After her husband’s death, she’d been adamant–never another firefighter. But Troy was impossible to escape. When he wore down her resolve, she thought a one-night-stand might purge him from her system once and for all, but his powerful appeal and uninhibited lust and zest for life were addictive. When a harrowing fire threatens their newfound happiness, Diana has to face her worst fears.

Werely meme sm

Dear Readers and Friends,

Night Fall was such a fun series to write. Kooky, uber-sexy. But as the stories progressed, a growing darkness and feeling of dread began to seep in. When I wrote Truly, Madly…Werely, I knew fans would either scream at me or beg for more. Most begged, thank goodness.

Now that I own the series, I can continue it the way I want to. This is the last of the re-edited stories. When I give you another Night Fall story, it will be new material. If you hadn’t read the series in its previous incarnation, you won’t care. It’s all new to you, right?

As for TMW, be warned. There’s a scene of non-con sex and another with some ff petting. The sex and violence are graphic. But this is the story that played in my mind. There wasn’t another way to tell it. And in the end, Quentin and Darcy are back together. Changed, yes, but together for the next adventure.

Read an excerpt from Truly, Madly…Werely!

After being bitten by a werewolf and then her husband, who is a vampire, Darcy drifts toward death…

Darcy sat on the bench in the middle of the dark field again. The man with the golden helmet was gone. She should have been glad that he’d finally left her alone, but she wasn’t. Before he’d come, she’d been content to drift—through the dark, airless night, in her thoughts—floating like a feather without the heavy burden of worries or fear, but he’d awakened something inside her.

His body had been beautiful despite the bloody tears cut deep into his skin. His smell had been familiar and comforting even though the musk of sex and tang of urine had clung to him. His pain had been palpable. And she’d felt drawn to him to provide comfort.

Which had really pissed her off, because she hadn’t wanted to care—not about her beautiful stranger or about herself. But here she was, unable to let go and simply drift, because she wanted to wait for his return.

Restless though she was and longing for his company, another force pulled at her, anchoring her to this open field.

The moon, overlarge and dominating the inky sky, rose high above the dark tangled branches of the trees surrounding the clearing. The silvery light it cast warmed her skin like a noonday sun but exerted a strange and magnetic draw. Her skin began to itch, her restless body felt infused with hectic energy. She left her seat and began to pace.

A faint howl rent the quiet, coming from deep inside the forest. And she knew what it was. From somewhere deep inside her, she found the image of a wolf, sleek-bodied and powerful. The image caused a shiver to crawl up her spine, followed by a restless yearning to seek out the creature. Which confused her.

Had she known wolves before or was the knowledge of their nature born inside her? She shook her head. It wasn’t important how she knew, just that she resist the call.

Instinctively, she knew that following the sound, surrendering to the allure of the night and the moon, would change her forever, and she wasn’t ready to move on. The beautiful man might return, and she would miss him.

So she drew deep, calming breaths, sat again on the cool marble seat, and closed her mind to the call that grew insistently louder and closer. If she didn’t respond, if she didn’t enter the woods, she would be all right. Soon, her helmeted companion would return for her. She knew that as surely as she knew only horror awaited her if she heeded the wolf’s call.

Zombie Love

Dear Readers and Friends,

Yes! Not the sexiest title ever, I’m sure, but you might be surprised. I wrote this shorty several years ago for a collection entitled Love, Lust and Zombies, which took forever to publish. I’ve been itching ever since to share it far and wide, because honestly, it’s one of my favorite pieces. And at just $0.99, I’m hoping you’ll give it a try. The story has an air of dread and sadness. My daughter read it and said it made her cry. Which can be a good thing, right? I usually go for smiles and laughter, but once in a while, I do like to go straight for the heart. And yes, there’s plenty of sexy, too.

Do you love the cover? My sister, Elle James, did that for me. I love, love, love it! I’m lucky to have her! If you get a chance to read Zombie Love and love the story like I do, let me know!

Have a great weekend!
