Rockin’ Reads Giveaway Hop

Rockin' Reads Hop

Hey everyone,

I’m part of the Rockin’ Reads Hop hosted by The Herd Hops. I’ve read several books this year, and surprisingly, I’m well ahead of where I should be for my goal. I’m one book away from finishing it. Basically, I’d hoped to read 26 books this year, and I’ve read 25. But I digress…

RivardThe book I’ve read this year that really rocked was Viola Rivard’s Claimed by the Alphas serial. I started reading it, and I could barely stop until I’d gotten through the set. The plot, the characters, the way she describes the werewolves… Heck, even the cover! All of it was rockin’. It was my first time reading one of Viola’s books, but it definitely made me dig into her other books.

How about you guys? What’s your rockin’ read of the year?

Covergasm Blog Giveaway Hop! (June 6-13th)

Covergasm Hop

Thanks for stopping by for the Covergasm Giveaway Hop! I’ve definitely been blessed with some awesome covers. While I know that we’re not supposed to ‘judge a book by it’s cover,’ covers are often what draw me to a book in the first place. Here are a couple of my covers, and come back on June 9th to see my very latest cover from the Cry Wolf series, which I think is absolutely gorgeous!

Here are the first two books from the Cry Wolf series, The Witch Who Cried Wolf and Cold Moon Rising. The third installment, The Wolf Who Played With Fire, releases June 22nd.

There’s so much that I love about The Witch Who Cried Wolf and Cold Moon Rising. These covers that it’s hard to pin everything down. The couples on them are perfect and match who I view them in my head, the wolves tie in the fact they are shapeshifter books, and the colors and style make them complementary to one another so you can tell they’re a part of a series. Sometimes you don’t really get that from covers in a series.

If I were to choose covers that have nothing to do with my writing, I’d say I really like the Monsters in the Dark covers from Pepper Winters, which include Tears of Tess, Quintessentially Q, and Twisted Together. I’ve only read the first book so far, but I’m looking forward to reading the second and final ones as soon as I get a chance!
Your turn! Which book covers give you a covergasm? Make sure to enter my contest below for your chance to win an ebook from my backlist!

Seriously Shifter Giveaway Hop

Thanks for stopping by for the Seriously Shifter Giveaway Hop! I absolutely love werewolves, so this hop was totally up my alleyway. When it comes to picking a certain book as my favorite, I have a hard time since I’ve read so many. I do have to say that I really enjoy the Kelley Armstrong ‘Women of the Otherworld’ books and the new SyFy show based on the books, Bitten, is great so far. Have you guys checked out either of them yet?
With my own writing, I have to say that I’m loving the ‘Cry Wolf’ series, which has The Witch Who Cried Wolf and Cold Moon Rising with the next book coming out in May.

The Witch Who Cried Wolf Excerpt

Jessa’s New Age shop—Eternally Magick—was empty. Usually, Jessa was around. But, right now, she wasn’t. I leaned against the front counter, resting my forehead against the cool glass. Athames, crystals, jewelry and really cute dragon statues were locked in the case beneath my fingertips. While I enjoyed hanging out at the shop and seeing what new potions were available, I wished Jessa had given me some kind of clue as to why she wanted me here. But she was my best friend and mentor; the reason had to be important, if for nothing else to spend much needed time together.

I glanced over my shoulder at the wall of ingredients lining the shelves, ripe for the picking. It had been a while since I’d made a new potion. Maybe if I could stock up on a few things…

“Not what you’re here for,” I whispered to myself. The urge to see what she had nearly drove me away from the counter, but I held myself in check.

Making potions was one of my hobbies. I loved the creativity and excitement that went into building something from nothing, and the brief connection with my power.

Tapping my fingers on the counter, I stared at the curtained-off backroom. Worry crept into my chest. Why wasn’t Jessa here? She never stood me up. This wasn’t like her.

“Jessa?” Usually she came right out when the bells on the door chimed. Biting my lower lip, I considered going into the back. Someone could steal things without her keeping an eye on the store.

“Coming,” Jessa called. The black-haired and blue-eyed beauty swept into the front of the store like a hurricane of flowing skirts. She always looked like she’d just come from a Renaissance faire.

I loved the way she dressed, but I knew that style would never be my thing. My parents would think I’d flipped my lid, and my older brother…. Shudder. Nolan would laugh at me, probably joking with his best friend—and my crush since forever—Ethan Parker.

“Where have you been? I was getting concerned.” Stepping around the counter, I wrapped my arms around her and she embraced me in a hug smelling of lavender and honey.

“Just in the back. I had to wrap up a call and I guess I didn’t hear you come in.” Jessa smiled, but something was up. She appeared a bit too eager to pretend everything was fine.

“What’s going on? Are you okay?” I placed my hand on her shoulder, trying to be comforting.

The door chimed, and we turned in unison toward the shop’s new arrival.

I blinked in surprise.

The man towered in the doorway, over six feet of pure muscle. If his shirt were a little tighter, I probably would’ve been able to see six-pack abs through it. What was he doing here?

He strode in as if he owned the place. There could be no doubt: ladies would drop their panties at his command. If I didn’t have a boyfriend…. Stop it, Mia!

“I’m looking for the owner,” the man said, his deep voice as smooth and sinful as his looks. Yet beneath his delicious exterior, something about him put me on edge. The hint of arrogance in his eyes and the sharp flare of power as he walked in the room were instant triggers. This guy wasn’t a mere mortal. He was something else, but I couldn’t put my finger on what. Aside from Jessa, I’d never met anyone else with this level of power.

Maybe I needed to get out more.

Jessa cleared her throat, as captivated by him as I was by the sound of it. “I’m the owner.” Her voice hit all the sultry tones and she swayed her shoulders. “Can I help you?” I wished I could pull her aside and tell her my feelings, but that would look way too awkward.

“We spoke over the phone. I’m interested in the potion.” He leaned his hip against the counter, standing only a couple feet away. Too close for comfort.

Since Jessa had business to take care of, I sidestepped toward the wall of ingredients, but Jessa grabbed my wrist, keeping me beside her. I cast her a dirty look, but she didn’t pay me any attention, focusing her gaze instead on Mr. Way-Too-Sexy.

“Right, I don’t have any of that in right now, but this woman makes some of the best healing salves I’ve seen.” Jessa nudged me forward, nearly throwing me into Mr. Sexy’s arms.

Glancing up his body to his eyes from so close strained my neck. My five-foot-six frame probably looked tiny beside him. An overwhelming sense of lust and intimidation washed over me.

“Hi.” I fought against a shiver.

Red Velvet Christmas Blog Hop

Ribboned
Megan Slayer

Ribbons aren’t just for decorating anymore.

Daria Elf never expected to be moved to the velvet ribbon department right before Christmas. She also never expected her boss to be the object of her wettest fantasies. Can she keep her cool, or will she end up on Raven’s Naughty List?

Raven Elf has his sights set on Daria. He wants her for his department, his bed and bound in his thick velvet ribbons. He’ll get his girl, but the hard part is convincing her that their connection is meant to last.

Silly Q/A with Raven, the hero from Ribboned:

Pajamas or nude?
Nude all the way. Can’t feel the one beside you if you’ve got clothes on.

Hairy chests or smooth?
A little hair never hurt, but not gorilla hairy. Oh…you meant my woman? Oh, I want her very smooth.

Yet To Come
Zenobia Renquist

He’s so bad and so good for her at the same time.

Rae is a ghost of Christmas future. Her track record for making people see and turn to the light is unblemished, except for one man. Zane has hit her list for the third and final time. The incentive he wants to be good is one she refuses to give him. Rae cannot be with a man who allies so easily with bad, but her desire demands she not be without him. At sunrise Christmas morning, her powers fade and with them any chance she has of seeing Zane again unless he can convince her the best is yet to come.

Silly Q/A:

Reporter: My first question is for Rae. Inquiring minds want to know — Nightmare Before Christmas or Scrooged, which is your favorite?
Rae: Why does everyone assume I would like the dark-themed Christmas stories? Of those two, I would choose Scrooged because I borrowed the Future Ghost’s visage from that feature once before. It worked quite well. However, my favorite Christmas movie is Love Actually.
Reporter: That’s a little surprising but not totally unexpected. You are a hopeless romantic. And you, Zane —
Zane: Mine is The Muppet Christmas Carol. I’m pretty fond of all versions of A Christmas Carol for obvious reasons. *winks at Rae*
Reporter: I wasn’t going to ask that but good to know. My question for you is what’s your funniest Christmas memory?
Zane: Easy. Getting the Ghost of Christmas Present drunk last year. He was hilarious — dancing on the bar, ice dancing in the air on actual ice, and buzzing cars on the freeway. If you’ve never gotten a fey drunk before and you get the chance, do it. Don’t hesitate. You’ll enjoy every minute.
Rae: And now you see why he made my list three times.


Merry Mate
BJ McCall

A red velvet Santa’s hat that only fits one’s true love? Sierra doesn’t believe in magic, but she’s willing to give it a try and find her merry mate.

Banning is in love with Sierra, but the werewolves of Elk Mountain stick to their own kind. Banning would do anything to spend time with the beautiful she-wolf and he’s more than willing to try on a Santa’s hat to please her.

Humans are off limits, but what’s a wolf to do when the hat is a perfect fit?

Q/A with Banning Hayes

Are you a night person or a morning person?
I’m a rancher. I have my first cup of coffee before sunrise. By sunset, I’ve put in a long day. Werewolves love to run in the moonlight and Sierra is no exception. I’m not sure how we’ll work out this night person/morning person thing, but wolves need to howl at the moon and I want to make Sierra happy.

Boxers or briefs?
Briefs. I spend a good part of the day in the saddle.

Hearth and Home
Ayla Ruse

What’s an elf to do when she finds herself between Hearth and Home?

Santa strives for peace and harmony, not only on Earth, but in the Otherworlds as well. This year proves that peacekeeping is no easy task. First, he has an unhappy elf on his hands. Nikki runs one of his gift departments, but the corporate world is not making her happy. She wants a husband and her current elf pickings are slim. Second, Santa’s received a request from two of Bindoal Dimension’s most prominent males…Kobol Home and Braun Hearth need a wife. Santa’s easy solution? Put the three together and let them find a happily ever after.

For Nikki, Kobol and Braun, however, Santa’s gift comes with unexpected surprises. Nikki believes this is a one-night stand. Braun does not care for elves, and Kobol’s afraid Nikki will want to return to the corporate world.

Even though sparks ignite between the three, will this be enough for them to create a happily ever after, or will their expectations make for a regrettable Christmas Eve?

Q/A

Chocolate or Vanilla?
Kobol: Chocolate
Nikki: Vanilla. With nuts. *snicker*
Braun: Where’s the Rocky Road?

Favorite color?
Kobol: Icicle white. Or red. Red’s good, too.
Nikki: Green. I like green.
Braun: (trailing a hand up Nikki’s thigh) Petal Pink

Ribbons and Lace
Anne Kane

All he wants for Christmas is a sexy little elf!

When Leonardo Delgado fell in love with a woman who was already engaged, he resigned himself to loving her from afar. But when her fiancée ran off with another woman, he knew exactly what he wanted to make his Christmas Merry!

Amanda-Lyn doesn’t believe in love any more. She takes a job as an elf at the local mall, and starts to rebuild her life. A nice one-night stand without all that romantic nonsense is all she wants this holiday season. It might have worked, too, except for her sinfully handsome boss and a jolly old matching-making man in a red suit and cap.

Q/A

Do you think a woman is sexier in ribbons and lace, or absolutely naked?
In Ribbons and Lace, definitely! I can’t think of a better way to spend the evening than slowily peeling all those layers away from her delightfully soft skin. ** his grin is delightfully evil as he regards the reporter** And when I’m done, she’ll be naked so I get it all!

Do you believe in Santa Claus?
Of course! You should see the little elf he gave me to play with!

Ticket to Ride
Ana Raine

Addison and Tyler have been together for five years, but when they move in together, Addison discovers Tyler has a secret — a hidden stash of bondage magazines, with pictures of Addison tucked inside.

Addison never thought he’d be into kinky sex, but he’d do anything to please Tyler — including venturing out to an adult toy store on a hunt to find out more about BDSM. He’s intrigued enough to bring home a rope set so he can surprise Tyler with the best Christmas present ever — a kinky, tied up Addison.

Q/A

What is your favorite Christmas song?
Taylor: Not a fan of Christmas music.
Addison: Greensleeves

Taylor: Probably a gingerbread cookie that had old frosting on it.
Addison: Fruitcake.

Hot Halloween Heroes Giveaway Hop

Hot Halloween Heroes Giveaway Hop

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by on the Hot Halloween Heroes Giveaway Hop run by Felicity Heaton and Indie Romance Books. My apologies for the post going up a little late.

Since the topic is Hot Halloween Heroes, I’m going to let myself have a fan girl moment. I absolutely love Karen Chance’s Pritkin from the Cassie Palmer series. During the first book, I didn’t really like him but with each book I’ve fallen more and more in love with him. That to me shows how fantastic his character arc is and something I’ve been able to recognize in other books where the heroes knock my socks off.

For my own books, I’d say that two of my favorite heroes is Connor O’Reilly from Skin Deep and Brennan O’Niall from Captivated. Connor has such a deep dedication and love for his heroine that I just fell head over heels for him immediately. Brennan, on the other hand, is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome with that spice of broodiness, but when he falls for his heroine, he’s willing to lay down his life for her.

Who is your favorite paranormal hero?

Lucky in Love Blog Hop – Winner Announced

Welcome to my stop for the Lucky in Love blog hop!

Fun facts about me:

I love this time of year. St. Patrick’s Day makes me think of the Irish with faeries and leprechauns. Although, NOT the horror movie kind. Yeesh!

I’ve also had some fond memories of a huge 64 oz green pina colada shared with my hubby after a St. Patrick’s Day parade a few years ago.

Each year, I try to wear green; however, most of the time, I forget.

And I’d love to go to Ireland some day! It looks so green and lush. Plus their mythology… *fans self*

Skin Deep

Passions sizzle even between a feline and a wolf…

Angelique had no idea her black panther tattoo would force her to abandon the love of her life—Connor O’Reilly—but she’s determined to keep him safe no matter how much it hurts. Her tattoo doubles as her feline familiar: loving, protective, dangerous, and with a life of its own. It’s also her deepest secret and draws enemies who desire its power for themselves.

Connor has no idea why Angelique left him, but he’s determined to win her back. As a werewolf, he has secrets of his own. Now his alpha is ready to force him to pair with an ex-girlfriend he can’t stand unless he can find Angelique and claim her as his mate. But even as their secrets threaten to keep them apart, hidden enemies seek to destroy their chance at love forever.

What are your plans for St. Patrick’s Day? Will you be wearing green?

One of my favorite books that I’ve written is definitely Skin Deep. The relationship between the hero and the heroine melted my heart.

His dedication to Angelique and having her in his life regardless of the potential consequences and the fact she left him without telling him why. *fans self* Plus, look at that cover… such a hot muscular torso!
