Two days to go!
Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

“Tiger” is the fourth book in the Altered States series. Previously released as “White Tiger”, it has been significantly expanded. If you like your shifters feline, this series should ring all your bells.
~DD :mrgreen:

An analyst in a secret government agency, Casey McTaggert’s professional life has been dedicated to the capture of one suspected terrorist. Even before she’s abducted by Khalid in the midst of a firefight, she’s completely fascinated with the man they call the “The Tiger.” But what began as a professional obsession quickly becomes lust as his dark, Persian features and harshly hewn body awaken a forbidden passion.

Khalid Razeh can’t fight the genetic programming that makes him shift into a tiger any more than he can resist the sensual allure of his lovely hostage. While forcing her to accompany him on one last mission, he fights the overwhelming attraction, knowing that he is walking into a trap that will end in death. Casey’s tender lovemaking and growing belief in his innocence are a sweet balm to his wild, savage soul.


“I can’t sleep here like this,” Casey whispered, although she had slept for some time if the graying light was any indication. She hoped like hell she hadn’t snored.

“Is the ground too hard?” Khalid murmured beside her.

She liked his deep, sleepy voice a little too much. Made her think about what it would be like as a regular occurrence in her life. “No, not hard. Bugs,” she said, forcing the words through a constricting throat.

New release coming…and a contest!
Sunday, April 19th, 2009

If you wonder where I’ve been, well it’s been a little nuts around the Devlin house lately.

Dad’s out of the hospital at last. He’s home and recuperating, so thanks for all the good wishes!

I finished revisions of the fourth Dark Realm story and shipped it, and have been doodling with new ideas ever since. I can’t seem to land on just one, so I’m letting my brain jump around and just taking notes—maybe something useful will come out of all these unfocused thoughts.

Two big things happening this week. First, I have a new release coming on Friday. Click on the picture if you’d like to read more about it. I’ll post a couple of excerpts this week to whet your appetites!

Oh, and that second big thing? I’m heading to the Romantic Times Convention on Tuesday morning. Can’t wait!!

As for that contest…I always come back with tons of swag (books, promo items) from conference. I’ll send a box of stuff to one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is post a comment on this blog anytime between April 20th and 26th!

Sunday + a day Report Card
Monday, April 13th, 2009

I’m trying to catch up again. Just when I think I’m there, real life kicks me in the ass again. This time, Dad’s back in the hospital. Kidney failure. We’re hoping for the best. That it’s just a temporary glitch in his recovery from triple bypass surgery.

So, let’s see where I am today.

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I finished Stone’s Embrace and shipped it to my editor (have you seen the cover?). I’m crossing my fingers that she doesn’t throw up all over my very strange little tale. If she does, I hope to be in a better place mentally to deal with it.

I’m still revising the last Dark Realm book. It’s due Wednesday, so that’s my major push for the next few days. I reach a point after I’ve written a story that I want to scream if I have to look at it one more time—and I’m there. My editor loved what she’s seen so far, but wants some tweaks. But I read through it and wonder what the hell was I thinking?

All this week I’m trying to make lists getting ready for the Romantic Times convention. I leave next Tuesday, but still have to box stuff up. I don’t know what the heck I’m going to wear, and unless I can talk Daughter into going shopping with me, I may be in blue jeans because I am sooooo not a clothes horse and would just as soon be comfy.

But I did get a hair cut. The long locks are gone. The hairdresser talked me into throwing away the straightner and letting my curls go. Ack. I don’t know me when I look in the mirror. If you wonder how I’m coping, check out the pic I took of myself: New Do

I know, I look kinda intense. 😉

Inspiration or Perspiration…
Saturday, April 11th, 2009

See the reflection of the lightbulb on my screen? I broke the globe on my overhead fanlight and left it like that when I saw the way the light reflects on my black screen. It’s what I see every morning when I start work.

And today, I’m waiting for that “lightbulb” moment. I’d love the next new idea (preferably something with two naked cowboys) to pop into my head. I have a slew of lovely title ideas from the creative ladies on my loop, but no story to go along with them. Where has my easy imagination flown?

Or maybe I just need to power through these revisions and be done with it. I’m so easily distracted when I’m doing something I really, really don’t wanna do. I’m such a baby. Just eat those green beans! Four of them in one great big gulp rather than mincing them into micro bits to choke them down! Blech.
