One woman. Seven men. All bound by one man’s undying devotion.
Fundraiser Linden Hill has a knack for reading people. She always knows which conversations will put a prospect at ease, which drink will loosen a patron’s lips—or his wallet, and how cleavage will make a donor sweeten the deal. She’s even foreseen her dateless weekends four hundred and sixty-four times in a row.
But ten years after watching life drain from her former mentor’s and first love’s eyes, her skills for divining the predictable are lost. When Cyril returns, he’s still gorgeous, but this time he’s beyond human, far less dead, and pissed. His lack of memory drives him to desperate acts, and his turbulent re-acquaintance with Linden pulls her into his war with a creature hell-bent on his destruction. His group of six supernatural men share a tantalizing secret, but despite the hunger, it’s love that leads her to sacrifice everything to save him…

I'm a little behind the times. Most people make this type of post around Thanksgiving, but as the year ends and I'm looking forward to new opportunities, I also wanted to take a moment and cherish the gifts of the past year.
I became a published author.
I finished my first novel in 2012 and in 2013 I took on the painstaking task of querying. Etopia Press decided the novel would be a good addition to their erotic romance collection, and that began the wonderful relationship we now have. Thank you to them. And a big shout out to my editor Kyle Lewis, who believed in the story, made the editing process as painless as possible, and answered all of my ridiculous questions. Yes, I ask a lot.
My family didn't disown me.
In fact, they have supported me all the way. My husband has given me hours and hours of time to bring Cyril and Linden to life, so that I could still maintain my day job, which I also love and spend time with my boys. Without him none of it would be possible. Then there is my extended family who believed in me and supported me even when they found out what I write. :)
All of the wonderful people I met.
My new friends (internet and non-internet), colleagues, my awesome street team, my fans and all of the connections I made this year. Starting 2013, I knew nothing of social media. I kept reading about the importance of it in connection with readers and fellow authors, but I never imagined that a year later I'd have 10,000 Twitter followers, and almost 5000 likes on my Facebook Author Page. I never thought that I run a virtual party but in 2013 I either hosted or co-hosted over half a dozen. I'm very thankful for all the wonderful friends and acquaintances I've made over this past year.
Success in other parts of my life.
My fledging venture as an author has been a success, but in other areas of my life, I've known great accomplishment. I recently took a new position my company that will allow me to continue to grow and learn and I am most thankful for that opportunity.
I could go on forever. But my hope for you in 2014 is that you find peace, love, success and happiness in everyday!
All my best,

One night of sexual pleasure could teach a lesson in love.
Cyril is weary from weeks of traveling the Scottish moors, but his luck takes a turn when he rescues a battered and broken child. To express his gratitude, the boy’s father offers Cyril a night of carnal indulgence with his eldest daughter. Cyril graciously accepts, looking forward to a night of sexual release to ease the loneliness of his travels.
But what the supernatural sex god and deliverer of souls doesn’t expect is to be taught a lesson in love from the young and beautiful Celestine.
In a night of passion, two lost spirits find solace in an impostor’s kiss: one longing for a love that doesn’t yet exist, the other drowning in pain and guilt over love lost. Neither is what they seem…but what they learn will change them forever…
“Who is she?”
This was not a question I expected. Even though I was comfortable being nude, most humans were not. I saw in her mind what horrors men had bestowed upon her. The massive erection I sported should have frightened her, but with each quick glance I made in her direction, I saw she stood firm and resolute, while twirling the blindfold between her fingers.
“Who?” Not the time to speak riddles.
“The woman for whom that kiss was intended.”
“Oh.” I brushed my hands through my hair. The long, black strands fell one by one back into place. I sighed. “She’s my love. My light. But she is out of reach.”
“I have a confession.”
