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.

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…

Night Moves release day!

Kell has arrived! Night Moves is on sale, both print and eBook, and, on November 7th, it will also be available in audio from Tantor!  Actually, all 4 Shadow Force books sold to Tantor, so they’ll be releasing between November 7th and December 26th.  I spoke to the narrator, Johanna, and she’s awesome – she’s done all the Sookie Stackhouse and Kelly Armstrong books.  


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.


You can read an excerpt here and find character lists and soundtracks as well here!  And a few people have asked if it’s the last of the Shadow Force series – the answer is no, for sure.  I have a lot of plans, especially for Reid and Grier.  Also, I’m not done with Romantic Suspense – I’ve got a new RS series – Section 8 – coming out with NAL.  I’m excited for all my upcoming projects!



In The Air Tonight release day!!!

Mace and Paige are here – and Cael and Vivi too!!!


With danger closing in, all they have is each other.

Haunted by a mission he barely survived, Delta Force operative Mace Stevens still carries a soldier’s burden. Running a small bar in upstate New York, he remains a stone cold warrior who guards dangerous secrets and stays ready for anything. Anything except beautiful, vulnerable Paige Grayson, who shows up at his door, demanding answers about her heroic stepbrother’s death under his command.

Paige bears burdens, too. She’s plagued by demons unleashed by an older brother who committed mass murder before her eyes. But here in this snowy haven with Mace, she almost feels safe from the menacing promises of her insane sibling. As a nurse whose hands can read the deepest thoughts of anyone she touches, Paige knows Mace needs her as desperately as she needs him. And when a faceless killer begins unleashing fresh terror, Mace proves just how far he will go to save the woman who means everything to him.

I want to thank everyone who’s been talking about and tweeting about and facebooking about this series and this book – your support means the world to me.  I’ve always said that I write to pay it forward, because romance novels have helped me through some very tough times, and if I can help just one person by making their tough time a little easier with my books, I’ve done my job.  Thanks for giving me that opportunity 🙂
