So, USA Today’s Happily Ever After blog revealed my secret today 🙂 Go check it out and tell me what you think!
DIRE DESIRES: A Novel of the Eternal Wolf Clan (Coming July 2013)
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 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 Green- land pack. He helps her escape and promises to keep her safe from the men—and the wolves—who are hunting her and to 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.
First, I can’t thank all of you enough for all the great feedback I’m getting about IN THE AIR TONIGHT (it released Tuesday – you can get more info about the book here!) I’m so glad so many people are loving Mace and Paige 🙂
March 6, 2012 / Signet
The full moon is their mistress. They are predators of pleasure and pain. 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 six remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt…
Rifter leads the pack, embracing the lifestyle and ethics of an outlaw biker even as he battles an ancient enemy who has become a new, powerful force. But with his Brother Wolf raging inside him, howling to be unleashed, he needs to satisfy his hungers. And when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous blonde drinking alone in a bar that caters to both human and inhuman, Rifter’s primal instinct is to claim her.
Gwen has her own desires, long unfulfilled. She hopes a passionate night with the leather-clad, Harley-riding biker will ease her suffering. The seizures that have wracked her body her entire life are incurable—and they’re killing her.
But none of that will matter if Rifter can’t stop the growing threat to them all–trappers who are determined to enslave humankind and use the Dire wolves as part of their nefarious plan.
NAL got this cover SO RIGHT! I’m in love – I mean, this guy IS Rifter. YAY!!!
Night Moves is Shadow Force Book 4 – it’s Kell’s book and it’s available September 27, 2011! What do you think?!
Anything can happen under the cover of darkness.
Kell Roberts has walked the thin line between life and death for so long that it now feels like home. He is a soldier, a survivor, and a loner. Still, Kell cannot turn his back on the beautiful woman caught in his firefight against the drug lords of Mexico. She says her name is Teddie, but Kell senses there’s much more to her story—and it’s about to pull him into a mission he didn’t sign on for: keeping her alive.
Teddie Lassiter knows this lean, mean rescuer just saved her life, but the steel glint behind those soft gray eyes seem to be hiding something deep. The men after Teddie are deadly, but the man who holds her life in his hands and tempts her with his wicked touch is even more dangerous. He could make her dream about living and loving again. And if they can survive, maybe, just maybe, they can stop fighting the world and each other—and simply surrender.
Yes, I realize it’s been a million years since I’ve been here – deadlines got me for most of January but I knew you’d all understand. Promise to be back soon! But here’s a drive-by, since I have several things due by the 15th and must get cracking…
Code Word: Storm was an ACRO short story in The Mammoth Book of Special Ops that came out in May 2010. It’s a Sydney Croft (aka me and Larissa Ione) story featuring Creed and Annika, set between Riding the Storm and Unleashing the Storm. And now, it’s going to be available for you to purchase as a stand-alone eBook to have alongside your other ACRO books! And, to make it even better, it will be packaged together with Shiloh Walker‘s short story, Don’t Walk Away, from the same Mammoth Book!
We’re really excited to package these rereleases together – we don’t have an exact release date yet (we’re doing this ourselves, but it won’t be too much longer ) and it’ll be up on Amazon and B&N and other eBook sites.
Anyway, isn’t the cover we had made beautiful?! I love it! I’ll keep you guys apprised of the details as soon as we solidify everything.
It’s the week of cover goodness!!! This is Mace’s book – book 3 in the Shadow Force Series – comes out August 2011. I LOVE Bantam Dell’s art department!!! Cover copy to hopefully follow soon…
Here it is – Sydney’s TAKEN BY FIRE cover – it’s a June 2011 release! Isn’t it gorgeous?! What do you think?!?!
TEMPTING THE FIRE
EXTREME HEAT. EXTREME HUNGER.
A JUNGLE EDEN ABLAZE WITH TEMPTATION.
Shockwaves shoot through the Agency for Covert Rare Operatives (ACRO) when horrific video surfaces from the Brazilian rain forest. A team of Navy SEALs has been nearly wiped out by something sinister and superhuman. Now ACRO agents Sela Kahne and Marlena West head to the world’s most unforgiving jungle in pursuit of a mythical monstrosity with a taste for human blood. And the only path that will take them to the creature runs through two men, each hiding his own dark secret.
Sela is an expert on cryptozoology with a sideline skill that could prove invaluable: when she makes love to a man, she engulfs his innermost thoughts. Teamed with Marlena, Sela makes contact with the lone SEAL survivor, Chance McCormack. Meanwhile Logan Mills, the man who rescued Chance, leads his private company on a hunt that has nothing to do with saving lives. Soon, Sela will put her supernatural charms to work on Logan, determined to extract information about the creature they are seeking. But in this sweat-drenched realm of danger and deception, Logan is more than just a passive target. He has the power to lead a highly-trained seducer into a jungle without any rules, without any limits—and no end to the heat.
It was such a nice surprise (not that I wasn’t expecting the UPS man because, hi, he’s here daily thanks to Amazon) but I didn’t think this was being published until 2010.
Unleashing the Storm will also be translated – I’m can’t wait to see that cover too!
Sydney also got (I have no idea why I’m speaking of Syd like she’s another person – I like to pretend she is sometimes, though, especially when there’s a lot of writing to be done) a very beautiful brand new cover for TEMPTING THE FIRE which comes out August 2010. And no, I can’t show you yet. Soon, very soon, I promise, but it’s probably my favorite of all the covers. If not, it ties with Seduced by the Storm, which is my hands-down favorite cover. Or was, until I saw TEMPTING’s cover.
Do you have a favorite Croft cover?
