Happy Holiday Surprise!

Told ya I was working on something special ;)

I was hoping to have this wrapped up and ready to send your way today but... 2020, y'all. I'm so ready to put this decade of a year away.

Zane and Izzy are heading to your kindles on December 16th!


Talk to you next week, lovelies, with maybe a snippet to share of our new winged manfriend!



A dragon with a frozen heart. A woman needing to mend her own. Together, can they overcome the threat clawing at their happy ending?

After an unexpected heartbreak, Izzy Howell is left dangling like a misplaced ornament. Not wanting to spend the holidays alone, she's lured into a visit to her aunt's inn in Bearden, Montana. When an overbooking disaster sees the hottest dragon shifter under the sun walking into her suite, Izzy is ready to pack it in and go home. Except her inner cougar is digging in her claws and sniffing up the dragon's tree.

Dragon shifter Zane Darkwood works hard, then works harder. As a bounty hunter, no target gets very far, and no distraction gets in the way. Which is why when his latest eludes him and he's told—ordered—to take time off, he's ready to breathe fire and melt every single snowman in the little shifter town of Bearden. Bah humbug.

When the curvaceous cougar shifter captures his target on camera, Zane's plans to fly out of town are upended. He throws himself into the wintery celebrations with an eye on the prize, using Izzy as his cover. But between the hot cocoa, sleigh rides, and sneaky mistletoe mishaps, Zane finds himself questioning his priorities. The sassy, feisty, gorgeous woman teases his dragon and tempts him to bare his soul.

After Izzy finds out what really draws Zane's attention, her bruised heart is fully shattered. Despite her cougar's insistence that Zane is her fated mate, she pulls back before his grouchy spirit can do more than freeze her out. Danger isn't done with them, for while Izzy has been distracting him, a deadly criminal has been hunting them both.

Chase the bounty or chase his mate... Zane will need a Christmas miracle to claim them both.

Chestnuts Roasting Over Dragonfire is for readers who love the redemption of a grumpy hero, a snarky heroine, and a bit of winter magic. Download now for a hot-as-dragonfire holiday romance!

Claimed in Forbidden: A Wolf Shifter Romance (Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates Book 1)

At the Forbidden B&B, you’re just as likely to find fresh-baked cookies as straight jackets.

Like any self-sufficient woman, Daphne knows you can’t trust a selfie on Tinder. Turns out that goes for real estate, too. From the moment she reaches the driveway of the “beautiful mansion” she just purchased, she knows she’s been duped.

It’s going to take more than scrapbooks and self-affirmations to change this creepy AF insane asylum into the B&B she’s always dreamed about.

For alpha wolf shifter Declan, this is the construction job from hell. He isn’t interested in dating anyone--especially not a human. And especially not one who wants to strong-arm him into staring at paint swatches all day. But as he’s forced to work closely beside Daphne, Declan finds himself less resistant to checking out paint swatches and more interested in checking out her plumbing.

Is this the construction job from hell? Or is it destiny?

Claimed in Forbidden is the first book in the Forbidden Shifters series. Do you love hilarious hijinks, steamy love scenes, and hot alphas who are afraid of slugs? Of course you do. ;) One-click Claimed in Forbidden for a suspenseful shifter story you won’t want to put down!

Dragon Mate: Dragon Shifter Romance (City of Dragons Book 4)

I have this friend. His name is Victor.
There’s this kind of tension in the air when we’re together…
Something almost like danger.
It’s kind of thrilling, really. But it also wears me out.

It’s not like we’re mates. Oh, no. The whole mates drama is stupid.
I mean—the way us dragons talk about it!
Like some colossal accident that’s just going to hit you out of the blue one day.
Boom. You’re in love, you’re obsessed. And then you’re tied forever.

Yeah, that’s not for me.
Victor, though…
Is he just a friend? A friend with benefits?
Or could he be more?

The City of Dragons is the place of your dreams. Red-hot dragons left, right, and center, waiting for you to explore the concrete jungle with them. Are you ready to enter this city of fantasy, where mates, magic, and more await?
