An eBook from Sydney Croft & Shiloh Walker

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…DeadlyDesires

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.

Tempting the Fire cover!

In case you haven’t seen it yet over at Writeminded and LIST, here’s Sydney Croft’s beautiful new cover!

TEMPT updated copy

TEMPTING THE FIRE
August 2010

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.

There’s also a brand new Sneak Peek up for TOO HOT TO HOLD!!!


A Sydney Croft cover

Sydney Croft’s Riding the Storm has a pretty new Japanese edition that arrived at my door early yesterday evening.  

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?
