December Newsletter!

Well, it's that time again! 

Is your Xmas shopping done? Did you put up the tree? 

If you're like me, the answer is no to both questions, but tomorrow I'm finishing everything. Kind of hard to do when you release three books in one month, but I promise you that will NEVER happen again. 

Today is release day for Taken and Crowned. My first sci-fi MPreg dark romance that I hope you'll take a look at. I've already got a couple of good reviews so please pick it up. 


Let's get to the news.


With an exciting December coming to a close, Michael is idle. For the exception on free writing on the blog story and Omega loves with Gia, this muse will be idle for at least a couple of weeks. 

Once I start to write with him again, I'll be working on the Vale Valley Valentines with Mateo and Lance from Breakable. If you haven't picked it up, you can click this link to view. It's $3.99 or read FREE on Kindle Unlimited. 


For BL, I'm working on the sequel to Push, called Bend as well as a follow-up to Nerds Like Us called Fools Like Us. I'm also working on the sequel to Loved Me with Remmy, called Redux. No release date yet. 

I'm also doing 2 short freebies. Bedroom Toys for Smoke

And a short for Will and James from Nerds. Look for those before the end of December! Bedroom Toys should be done in a couple of days and I'll post a link on BL's blog as well as a NL blast. 


For those of you who read my MF, I'm starting on a new story for Veronica. The story is called Purple Haze. I hope to release at least 4 for V this year, so please give her some support. I promise you won't be disappointed. 

I also plan to write a couple for Rawiya as well. Most notably, Save Me which is a continuation of the book Guardian Angel I wrote for my cousin. I hope to release that in a month or two, but not sure with editing dates. 

As per usual, lots to come, so stay tuned!


Taken and Crowned RELEASE!

There will be a sequel to Taken tentatively called Stolen and Seduced. For now, please check out my first sci-fi dark romance!

Ambrose’s family tradition destroys his plan to be a forever bachelor.

Although Ambrose doesn’t wish to be with anyone long term, he must find a spouse immediately. According to the rules, no one inherits the throne unless they’re married. Additionally, his father wishes for Ambrose to seek a human. Despite not being elated with the decision, Ambrose figures doing the necessary requirement of mating and impregnating will be enough.

Max, who identifies as non-binary, is tired of being shamed and manhandled. They wish to make a living off their “hobby” but it’s not in the cards. Relationships aren’t even on their list of things to strive for, and they don’t want to change. Unless the person is a certain Hollywood star they have a crush on, Max isn’t interested.

When Ambrose meets Max at their place of employment, Max refuses to give the alien king-in-waiting the time of day.

Little does Max know Ambrose’s calm exterior is a cover up for the monster willing to go great lengths to claim them for a partner.

This title is a standalone dark romance with forced mating, dub-con, MPreg, and smartass aliens who hate to be wrong. On page violence, rough sex, and knotting are included.

Kink Aware Kiss of Leather Book Nine

The latest in Morticia Knight's Kiss of Leather series is out now!

Cruella can’t wait to show Ray the ropes…

Working at Rogue Ink is a dream job for Cruella, especially being around the hunky co-owner, Ray. Even though the money isn’t great, the eye candy and Ray’s caring heart make it all worthwhile. When Cruella risks rejection by inviting Ray to be their partner for a Shibari class at Kiss of Leather, they’re thrilled when Ray accepts.

Cruella’s invitation both excites and terrifies Ray. He wants Cruella, but does he also want to become more kink aware? Still, he could kick himself for not making a move yet on the sweet and beautiful Cruella, so maybe this is his chance. His protective instincts have gotten him into serious trouble before, so he’ll be sure not to make the same mistake with Cruella. They’ve made it clear they can take care of themselves.

Cruella fears that Ray won’t accept their genderqueer identity and Ray aches to be the strong man Cruella needs. However, when Cruella’s dark past intrudes on their blissful present—Ray’s definition of strength might turn out to be harsher than Cruella is willing to accept.

Reader advisory: This book contains a brief scene of violence.

A Swan for Christmas

Morticia Knight writing as M.M. Wilde

A Swan for Christmas is Book Four in the Vale Valley shared world series filled with lots of mpreg and sweet forever-afters!

An Alpha wolf and an omega swan can’t be fated mates… Right?

Abandoned by his swan herd and lost in a snowstorm, Kellan has nowhere to go. When he’s near death, he’s discovered by a wolf shifter in the woods surrounding a mysterious town filled with magic and hope. Could there also be love?

Vic, the owner of Vale Valley Inn and Restaurant, has been alone since a virus claimed the lives of most of his pack. He’s found acceptance and built a good life for himself in the beautiful town that has become his home. Still, facing another Christmas without a mate is heartbreaking, even if he’s accepted that he’ll never find his true wolf omega.

When Vic rescues Kellan, he plans to do anything he can to help the skittish man forge a new life in Vale Valley. He’s all too familiar with having to start over. But as they grow closer, something else starts happening that he’s not familiar with—the mating pull and a swan’s heat. 

A Swan for Christmas is the fourth book in a multi-author series about Vale Valley, a small town open to everyone in need of love and a home. Each installment can be read as a standalone. This mpreg romance story features an omega virgin desperate for love, a lonely Alpha who is perplexed by the mechanics of nesting and a whole lot of hurt/comfort and smexy times. So curl up by the fireside with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy a Happy Holiday with two men who are destined to be together forever and raise a beautiful family!

Saving Jax

This is book two in L.M. Brown's alien feline series. 

Read about the first one here

Read for FREE with a Kindle Unlimited Subscription or buy at $3.99

Jax has made mistakes in his life, the biggest of which was falling for Lyndon. His love died when Lyndon refused to claim him as his mate after Jax discovered he was pregnant. His feelings turned to hate when his babies were stolen from his care the day they were born. 

Reliant on Lyndon for the cream he needs to survive, Jax does everything he can to keep him happy and he lives for the day when he will be reunited with his children. 

When Jax discovers he is pregnant for a second time, he is terrified his second litter will be taken from him, too. 

Ty is a dual-gendered feline who dreams of carrying his own babies one day. If they are fathered by Cal, the sexy feline he feeds from, it would be even better. Ty’s parents have other ideas. They don’t wish the public to know that their high-born son is dual-gendered, and arrange for a mating festival to take place so Ty can choose a dual-gendered mate of his own. 

Although Ty has no intention of submitting to his parents’ wishes, something about Jax draws Ty to him and when he and Cal discover Jax’s secret, they know they must help.

Ty and Cal offer Jax a way to escape Lyndon’s clutches, but Jax knows almost nothing about the two felines who have offered to claim him. 

The stakes have never been higher and Jax must learn to trust again, or risk losing everything.

Note: This book contains non-graphic dub-con and brief attempted assault between one main character and a secondary character that some readers may find upsetting.

Readers are also advised to please read the additional warning and author note inside the book preview before purchasing.
