CODE OF SILENCE by Award-winning Internationally Bestselling author Marliss Melton:
Navy SEAL Vinny DeInnocentis has no idea his news reporter wife is keeping secrets. With her hard-won reputation for rooting out corruption, Ophelia can’t let a little thing like her unexpected pregnancy get in the way of exposing Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor for the liar he is. But will her quest to publicize the truth — and her shocking discovery that her target is far more dangerous than she imagined — cost her more than she ever thought she’d lose?

SEAL MY DESTINY by New York Times and USA/Today Bestselling Author Sharon Hamilton:
Back from a horrible tour, Navy SEAL Luke Paulsen has a chance encounter with a woman who begins to unthaw his troubled soul. Deciding he’s too damaged, he begs off further entanglement, but then meets her again a month later at a family wedding, where the unavoidable attraction pulls them together as never before. Will their love be enough to heal them both for a chance at a Happily Ever After?

HOLDING ON by New York Times Bestselling author Stephanie Tyler:
(a novella set in the Hold series – originally published in SEAL of My Dreams altho) Jamie Michaels is an FBI Agent, married to a Navy SEAL…and about to give birth while her husband’s deployed. Navy SEAL Chris Waldron’s been on some impossible missions before, but getting home in time for the birth of his son might prove to be the toughest–and most rewarding mission of all.

WARRIOR by Bestselling author Gennita Low:
On a covert operation with his SEAL team, Lucas Branson bumps into his love interest, Kit Ling Harrison, who is overseas with her media team interviewing victims of war. Things get interesting when he and Kit end up on an unexpected road trip. Chasing vehicles, avoiding RPGs, singing silly songs, and falling in love ensue.

SEAL’s DESIRE by USA Today Bestselling author Elle James:
Back from deployment, Navy SEAL Remy LaDue’s planned Valentine’s Day date with NCIS agent Mitchell Sanders runs amuck when he finds her undercover as a sexy stripper at a local lounge.

Former Navy SEAL K9 handler Joe Flynn lost his dog in the war and doesn’t want anything to do with animals, but every stray in Denver seems to head his way. Luckily for him, the luscious veterinarian Willow James doesn’t mind taking care of everything he finds. She even seems willing to take him on with all his ghosts, but is he ready to let them go for her?

BREAKING FREE by Bestselling author Teresa Reasor
When her brother Brett is attacked and left for dead, Zoe Weaver and Lieutenant Adam ‘Hawk’ Yazzie work together to discover if one of his SEAL teammates is responsible for his injuries. But will loyalties forged on the battlefield prove more binding than the truth? Or their love?

MUTINY’S BOUNTY by USA Today Bestselling author Delilah Devlin:
Interested only in experiencing an adrenaline-packed adventure first-hand to give her credo when she books her clients’ adventure vacations, Lace McElhannon finds more excitement than she can handle when she meets and falls into bed with ex-SEAL Dex Haygood. Fresh from protecting transport ships from Somali pirates, Dex figures his latest job will be a cakewalk, until he finds himself in deep water, swimming with sharks and trying to protect Lace when the yacht they’re sailing on is taken.

New series & cover reveal for Vipers Run!!!!

Today, the gorgeous Vipers Run cover is revealed exclusively at USA Today (what an honor!), and tomorrow, the cover will be up here on StephanieTyler.com.  And guys, check out the front page of USAT’s HEA – how COOL is this?!?

I’m really excited to talk about my new contemporary Skulls Creek motorcycle club series!  I mean, let’s be honest, I think most every book I’ve written has a guy with a Harley in it (starting from my very first Blaze) but with both my Dire and Defiance series, I got very into the motorcycle club genre.  My editor at NAL actually approached me with, how would you feel about writing a contemp MC series…and obviously, I was really excited to do so!  I’d already been tossing around some ideas on my own, so sometimes fate and opportunity meet at just the right time. So I’ll have my post-apocolyptic New Adult MC with the Defiance series, and my Vipers MC series is contemporary romance – very different feels but always with alpha heroes.  :)

The Vipers aren’t angels, but they’ve definitely got some hard boundaries about what their club will—and won’t—do.  And even though falling in love isn’t high on any of the Vipers lists, they’re all going to go down hard.

To learn more, including order links (when they’re available next week!) and more about my upcoming works, check out my up next page!

Redemption release day!

Redemption, book 2 in the Defiance series, is out today!  It’s Mathias and Jessa’s story in the world I’ve dubbed Sons of Anarchy meets the Apocalypse.

Mathias Robichaud is looking for an alliance. The Defiance motorcycle club is a stronghold in the dangerous world that’s become the new norm and he’s driven to prove he’s tough enough to be sworn in as a full member. But when he sees a beautiful, spirited girl abducted by a rival MC, rescuing her jeopardizes all he’s worked for.

 

Politician’s daughter Jessa Everson knows what’s expected of her—obedience, loyalty and silence—but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t fight when she’s kidnapped by the Lords of Vengeance. Having Mathias save her is like gaining an avenging angel in leather and tattoos. But Defiance is known for brutal justice, and she may have just traded one bad situation for another.

 

Mathias’s urge to protect is too strong to ignore, no matter how much trouble Jessa brings to Defiance’s gates. There’s no room in the post-Chaos world for weakness so if Mathias and Jessa have any chance of surviving, they’ll need to put their full strength behind the MC…and hope that the MC will do the same for them.

Defiance, book 1 in the series, was just nominated by RT Magazine for Best New Adult Novel!  So if you need up on Defiance, it’s on sale until the end of defiance_99cNovember – $1.99 wherever eBooks are sold :)

Rebelling against her legacy as the MC’s princess, Tru Tennyson escaped the ruthless, male-dominated culture of the Defiance motorcycle club. Three years later, her newfound freedom is ripped away, thanks to a massive hybrid storm that killed millions. Now, in the post-Chaos world of semi-darkness and near-total anarchy where gangs rule, she discovers the dangerous world of Defiance may be the one thing that can keep her safe.

Tru is at the MC’s mercy when she’s dragged back to her former home … and to the only man she’s ever pictured a future with. Caspar is the bastard son of the club’s leader, her safe haven when life got rough — and her onetime lover the night she left. When Tru refuses to trade sex for power and be claimed by a rival club leader, she also dares to announce she wants Caspar instead, throwing the MC into turmoil.

Tru’s brazen revolt could start a gang war and destroy the club from within. Now both Tru and the MC must wait for Caspar’s response… and the inevitable fallout.

 

It’s release day for Unbreakable!

Unbreakable is book 2 in the Section 8 series, and it’s available today!  

A cabal of operatives with dangerous pasts team up to work black ops missions. Their weapon: deception. Can they help one of their own before he goes too far?

When Gunner agreed to help out Section 8, he didn’t realize he’d be pulled back in to the shadowy world he’d thought he’d escaped forever. The son of double agents, Gunner was initiated at a young age into the cold world of espionage when his father forced him to work for international smuggler Drew Landon. And when Gunner’s past with Landon threatens the other mercenaries, and most importantly, Avery, he makes an impossible choice…and disappears.

Avery’s not willing to give up on Gunner. The attraction between them has been there from the start and she rallies Section 8 to help him. She knows there’s only one way to keep Gunner safe: fake his death and take him off the grid. But when she finally locates him, Gunner is a changed man, harder, more desperate, and on the edge of self-destruction. And only Avery can find a way to free him from Landon—and from the demons of his past—before it’s too late.

Dire Desires releases today!!!

It’s Jinx’s turn!  Dire Desires is the third book in the Eternal Wolf Clan series and it’s out today in print and eBook!

DIRE DESIRES:desires_410

Feared by humans, envied by werewolves, the Dire wolves are immortal shifters, obeying no laws but their own bestial natures. Once they were many, but now only a few remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt…

 

Jinx is a Dire wolf without a pack. Kicked out of the house by his king, and living with a vampire named Jez, Jinx has been trying to undo the damage he’d unintentionally caused during the reign of the Dire ghost army, which unleashed some of Purgatory’s worst monsters on the world at large. But when he hears that an unshifted Were is being held in a psychiatric hospital, he immediately drops everything to help her.

 

Gillian Black has no idea what’s happening to her—and Jinx discovers that she’s not just any Were, but a Dire wolf from the original Greenland pack. He helps her escape and promises to keep her safe from the men—and wolves—who are hunting her, and teach her everything about being a wolf.

 

He must also fight his feelings, wanting to claim her as his mate…at least until after he defeats the supernatural enemies that threaten all of them.

Defiance is an RT Top Pick!!

My first Top Pick!  I’m so excited!  RT gave Defiance 4.5 stars and says:

“Unforgettable! The setting, the characters, the plot — every element of Tyler’s book is completely unlike anything else out there. Sure, you have read about motorcycle clubs, and bad boys with chips on their shoulders, and post-apocalyptic settings — now imagine combining all of these elements and add in one smart-mouthed heroine who knows her mind and you will get the wonder that is Defiance.”

Defiance is a recommended read at Romance Novel News!  Jennifer Porter says:

“The world of Defiance sucked me in completely. I could not put it down. The darkness of the story provided an excellent backdrop to the uncertainty of life for its inhabitants, especially Tru and Caspar. I cannot wait to see where Tyler takes this series next.

 “Defiance” might actually make me a new adult convert. I highly recommend this story.”

And finally, I really love what Under The Covers Book Blog says about Defiance:

“In a promising start to a new look in New Adult, DEFIANCE is taking the best elements of Fiction and creating a hybrid read that stands out like a gem.”

Today, I’m at RT with a quiz: titled:  Could You Handle Stephanie Tyler’s Defiance universe?

I’m over at Fiction Vixen talking about Tru.

Thanks again to all the bloggers and readers who really helped me get the word out there about this book :)
