If Hannah can’t find Ian soon, he’ll be lost to her forever as a digital slave…

Things get worse when Ian is kidnapped by the werewolves and taken to a secret facility.

If not, MAX may turn Ian into a brainwashed slave to harness his abilities.

News Bytes

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having an awesome Thursday. I have some very cool news to share.

First of all… wow, Jungle Heat is up for Preditors & Editor’s Readers’ Poll for Romance Short Story in 2011! I’d love your vote!

I’m also excited to share that Techno Crazed, the first book in the Hacked Investigations series, is now available for Nook at Barnes & Noble! Get your copy here.

Also, I have the tagline and blurb for my February 2012 release, Captive Moonlight, part of the Wolves of the Wild West multi-author series, but can be read as a standalone. The tagline and blurb might still change a little, but I figured I’d give all you a sneak peek!

Tagline: A gentlewoman will do whatever it takes to rescue her captive werewolf betrothed.

Blurb: When her betrothed, Joe, is taken captive by a group of men looking for werewolf laborers, it’s up to Charlotte to track him down and win him back.

Pretty simple, but I think it sums the story up well. I can’t wait to see the cover, and I’ll definitely share when I get it!

The Do’s and Don’ts of Caring for Gnomes

This week’s Into the Paranormal is a fun post. It’s tied in with my Hacked Investigations cyberpunk romance series, so then why is this about gnomes you ask? Meet Bernard, a fantastically funny and obnoxious sidekick to my technomage hero, Ian Bradley. He can be helpful or he can be a pain in the butt.

Here are a few tips Ian’s learned.

DO keep the house full of good fruits and vegetables since gnomes tend to be herbivores. Side note: make sure you don’t forget to bring him his favorite sweets too. Yes, they can have a sweet tooth.

DON’T keep alcohol anywhere near the house. The gnome will drink himself silly and be grumpy from the nasty hangover that ensues.

DO treat him nicely. If you don’t, chances are he’ll pay you back in mischievous ways.

DON’T keep your eyes off him for a second when things start to go wrong. He might bring more trouble on your head.

DO encourage him to plant his own garden, if you like to keep a roof over your head. He eats a lot.

• And finally, DON’T bring home a girl you’re interested in romantically, he’ll probably make lots of lewd innuendos that you wouldn’t want her to hear.

Private investigator Hannah Franklin has a new partner, her sizzling hot lover and technomage, Ian Bradley. But they may be in over their heads when brought in by their friend from the hospital to quietly solve a case that baffles even the police. The victims are being drained of blood and having their organs removed in a ritualistic fashion.

When Ian’s attention narrows to solely encompass their work, he’ll need to keep their relationship strong, or he could find himself repeating a painful past.
