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.

Defiance release day!!!

Defiance releases today – it’s the first in a series of New Adult post-apocolyptic CARINA_0613_9781426896026motorcycle books 🙂 Think, Sons of Anarchy meets the apocalypse!

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

Surrender release day!!!!

SURRENDER releases today!!!! It’s book 1 in the new Section 8 series, which is a romantic suspense with lots of romance 🙂

On the run and living for revenge…

Desperate, fearless, and hunted.

For ex-Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke, Section 8 was legendary. The son of one 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 their handler, who answered only to the president, 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 extreme orders: kill any remaining members, along with their families. It’s then that Dare makes a startling discovery: the existence of a long-lost half sister named Avery he was never meant to meet. Determined to fight for their lives and find their missing father, Dare and Avery bring together the last members of Section 8 for one last mission: to avenge their families, and to survive.

And now, I’m hunkering down to write, because there’s a HUGE blizzard heading my way.  Stay safe if you’re in Nemo’s path (and I don’t ever remember them naming a blizzards before?!)

Pt 2 – Manspeak & Dolphin squeaks

Picture it – a kitchen on New Year’s Eve.

Me:  We’re eligible for a phone upgrade tomorrow – we can get our iPhones!

Zoo:  I don’t think I am.

Me:  We got our phones the same day.  Same account.

Zoo:  Oh.  Okay.

Me:  So I can either order them from Sprint and they’ll take a few days to come or you can stop in a Sprint store in the city and grab them.

Zoo:  Okay.  Why don’t you have them sent.

Me:  Sure.  You’re not near any Sprint stores?

Zoo:  (without a hint of irony and / or recognition)  Well, there’s a Sprint store in my building.

Me:

Zoo:  You want me to get them?

Me:

Zoo:  So I’ll get them.

Me:

Cover love – Dire Desires!

So, what do we think of Jinx?!  

 

 

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.

 

my loving family…

Mom:  I’m leaving now.  And there’s water on the floor – be careful because someone could slip.

Me:  Someone, or you?

Mom:  Well, I could easily slip on this.

Zoo:  And then you’d sue us.

Mom:  (on her way out the door)  Parents sue their kids all the time…
