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.

Lonely is the Night release day!!!

Lonely is the Night releases today!!! It’s a Penguin eSpecial novella (approximately 35K)  and it’s book 5 of the Shadow Force series :)

Recently retired Delta Force Operator Reid Cormier utilizes his special skills by working black ops jobs all around the world with his former teammates and their wives. Reid’s career keeps him busy, but he can’t get his last job—or the woman involved—out of his head.

 

US Marshall Grier Vanderhall faked her own death without telling Reid of the plan first, and he couldn’t forgive her duplicity. But when Reid learns that Grier has been kidnapped by a dangerous ring of criminals, he drops everything and heads to New Orleans to rescue her. And while Reid knows that his skills make him the best option to get Grier back, he’s not sure if this mission will give them another chance—or get them both killed.

DIRE WANTS release day!!! (UPDATED)

**SEE BELOW IN BOLD***

Stray’s here :)  DIRE WANTS is book 2 in the Eternal Wolf Clan series and there’s so much I love about this book!  There’s lots of romance, lots of Vice…and Cain, who’s become a favorite.  ****Guys, my daughter’s having emergency surgery in the next day or two – it’s an emergent situation with the rods in her back.  I just wanted to update you about the ebook links – I have no fucking idea why they weren’t put up long before this.  But now, with the hurricane, everything’s a problem, which, of course, I understand.  So they should be up, but they’re not and I’m not going to pretend everything’s great, because it’s a major fuck-up in my eyes and it’s not my fuck-up.  And I can’t get an eta as to when they’ll be up.  I apologize and will let you know as soon as I know anything.  I’m pissed and frustrated as hell.  But my first concern at this point is with my kid.  I know you guys understand***

The supernatural world is rising up against the human one. The weretrappers want control, and only the immortal Dire wolves stand in the way of total destruction. Stray, a Dire, and his long-lost brother, Killian, emerge as the leaders of their pack. To keep themselves and the humans safe, the Dires need a witch as powerful as Seb, who betrayed the Dires to work for the weretrappers.

They find what they are looking for in Kate, a human who survived a horrible car accident that left her back scarred with a handprint no one else can see. Stray senses Kate’s abilities as a witch and recruits her to help the Dires — all the while knowing she is so powerful they will need to kill her once she helps defeat the weretrappers.

Stray doesn’t expect the powerful connection that he feels with Kate, or his irresistible need to protect her. They cannot hide their feelings for each other, and what once was taboo now seems inevitable…

Surrender: A Section 8 Novel – cover reveal!!!

So, what do we think?  Cause I LOVE!!!

SURRENDER:  A Section 8 Novel (release date:  April 2, 2013)

DESPERATE, FEARLESS, AND HUNTED  

For former Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke, Section 8 was legendary. The son of one of its missing members, he grew up in the shadow of its secrets. All he knew was that it was a cabal of operatives discharged from branches of the military and reassigned to extremely dangerous, off- the-books international missions. And that their handler was as shrouded in mystery as the missions themselves.

NOTHING CAN STOP THEM. NOTHING CAN BREAK THEM.

Now the handler of Section 8 has given orders to kill any remaining members, along with their families. Dare must save his long-lost half sister, Avery, whom he was never meant to meet. Determined to fight for their lives and find their missing father, Dare and Avery bring together for one last mission those who are in danger because of their relationship to Section 8—to avenge their families and to survive.

Updates for the new year…

Okay, a few updates before I head back to the deadline cave where I resided for the better half of the last year :)  It’s likely not to change, which is a very, very good thing.

Obviously, my website has been revamped – it’s it gorgeous?!  Waxcreative, as always, exceeded my expectations!  So now it reflected the wolf  as well as the romantic suspenses and I think it ties in so well.

Wax also redid the Sydney Croft page as well!

So, upcoming – and SOON – is the prequel to the Eternal Wolf Clan series – Dire Warning!  It releases February 7th and then Dire Needs:  Book 1 in the EWC series comes out March 6th!

For those who’ve been asking about poor Reid and Grier from Night Moves, yes, I totally plan to do something for them before the new suspense series begins in 2013 – I promise to keep you posted!

Other than that, I’m diving into the first of the new romantic suspense series – the book is currently titled Unbreakable and the series is called Section 8.  I just handed in book 2 in the Eternal Wolf Clan series and I’m getting ready for a blog tour for the upcoming releases.  And, I’m also going to try to blog here more.

Stop laughing.  Just keep staring at Rifter over there on the left.  And I’ll update here for the blog tour because there will be giveaways along the way!  Hope everyone’s doing well and having a good start to 2012 – we had our first dusting of snow last night so it’s finally starting to feel like winter.  I like winter.  Probably because I commute from the bedroom to the kitchen and back…
