Forget everything you think you know about mass murderers and crimes of passion, because now you’re going to learn the truth. People don’t decide one day to go out and kill as many people as they can, or wake up one morning, grab the nearest shotgun or axe, and proceed to hack apart their loved ones. They do it because they’re infected with a jewel, a creature of intense beauty and danger. Once the jewel takes over a host’s body, that person dies, leaving the jewel in total control to thrive on fear and horror.

Cutler and David are reunited, and this time they will fight anyone who tries to separate them again. But when someone steals shards of defeated jewels, word is that an underground faction is trying to re-grow the deadly entities from those pieces. Cutler and David are assigned to help recover those shards before that can be accomplished. Because if they fail, the number of jewels will increase to where the delicate balance between lapies and demons will be compromised.


After which the wholesale slaughter of mankind will be imminent.

Warning: Contains strenuous hiking, shower sex, a traitor, Strychnine poisoning, a secret apartment, bell jars, emotional torture, ambush in a hospital, a job offer he can't refuse, and the ultimate fight to keep a love alive.

Janie Kayrs has known Zane almost her whole life. He was her friend in the dream world. She trusted him. But that was before he kidnapped her, spiriting her away to an isolated cabin to learn what her dreams never told her. Like how dangerous he looks. How he got on the wrong side of the negotiating table. And how much sexier he is in real life…

Zane is a battle-hardened warrior, used to command and solitude. But Janie has drawn him from the minute they met. His need for her could destroy everything he’s worked for, but the risk is too sweet not to take it. They call her the Chosen One. But when it comes down to the questions of peace or war, life or death, safety or passion, it will be Janie who makes the choice…

Forget everything you think you know about mass murderers and crimes of passion, because now you’re going to learn the truth. People don’t decide one day to go out and kill as many people as they can, or wake up one morning, grab the nearest shotgun or axe, and proceed to hack apart their loved ones. They do it because they’re infected with a jewel, a creature of intense beauty and danger. Once the jewel takes over a host’s body, that person dies, leaving the jewel in total control to thrive on fear and horror.

Cutler Glass is a lapidary, one of an unknown group of people who’ve dedicated their lives to destroying jewels. But in order to keep the jewels from slaughtering innocent victims, she has to kill the host and then eat the jewel that emerges from the body.

Except this time the jewel she's assigned to go after, a diamond, has infected a very wealthy and influential man who has hired police protection. When Detective David Fellowes clashes with Cutler, it’s going to take more than a simple explanation before he believes her outlandish tale.

Until then, they both have to deal with their growing attraction to each other, and the fiery emotions it ignites.


Warning: Contains creatures of unbelievable horror, a woman facing a future of bitter solitude, a man willing to sacrifice everything to be with her, and their burning love that one person is determined will never be allowed to continue or flourish.

Like Vampires? Jack the Ripper? It's a New Release and Giveaway if BREACHERS: Viento and Bycote - Tonight on "Other Worlds of Romance" on Blog Talk Radio!

Like vampires? Jack the Ripper?

It's a new release and giveaway tonight on "Other Worlds of Romance" on Blog Talk Radio! Come listen as I read an excerpt from BREACHERS: Viento and Bycote, book 3, a sensuously erotic paranormal/urban fantasy romance.

They are the cause of many legends, myths, and fairy tales. And they still live among us.

Someone is slaughtering young women in London, and using the same methods as Jack the Ripper did in the late 1800s. As much as the Metro police try to deny it, all signs point to the fact that infamous killer could be back - somehow, some way.

Ex-lovers and now partners, Jahar Viento and Fasha Bycote are sent to track down the murderer, whom they belive is actually the work of a Breacher. A Breacher who may have found a way to transcend time. A Breacher known as a garphar. Or, more commonly, a vampire.

Their abilities, their past history together, and their still fiery attraction to each other will be sorely tested as they draw closer and closer to the killer...

Because it will take a vampire to kill a vampire.


Warning! Contains fried chicken (extra crispy but not spicy), venom, undeniable passion, time traveling, living a nightmare, scrumptious cattle blood, and two people desperately in love, but with secrets that are determined to keep them apart.

Six on Sunday - BREACHERS: Viento and Bycote


Six paragraphs from BREACHERS: Viento and Bycote (Bk 3), a paranormal/urban fantasy romance.


1. "If you're thinking about a reconciliation, Mr. Viento, forget it. We're working as a team on this venture, and nothing more. Speaking of venture..." She turned on the overhead lights and reached for the brown envelopes. "If you're not going to sleep, we might as well look at what Mr. Morrow needs done. Have you ever been to London?"

2. She grabbed him by the wrist and squeezed, increasing the pressure on the limb until the fragile bones snapped, and he released his hold. The man started to howl in pain when she turned on him, letting her features shift to where he could clearly see her transformation. The glowing red eyes. The multitude of razor-sharp teeth that glistened in the lamp light when she opened her mouth. He whimpered in shock as she hissed at him.

3. "There's no statute of limitations on murder," Fasha finished. She reached over Jahar's shoulder to turn one piece of paper around in order to read it more easily. She laid a hand on his arm while doing so, and the contact was almost electric. His heat and energy were an invisible veil floating up and over her, suffusing the air with his masculine scent. She could hear the steady pounding of his heart, and the blood as it rushed through his veins like the most delectable soup. Her hand jerked away, but not before Jahar cast his eyes at her.

4. Her emphasis met its mark. She saw how his face sagged slightly as he reluctantly accepted the fact that her feelings for him were gone. Fasha hesitated. Suddenly, she wanted to take back her words. She wanted to let him know that flame had never gone out. Even though over the years, it had slowly diminished from a roaring bonfire to a flickering candle, it still remained. Still glowed, even in her darkest times. But she couldn't tell him. Not here, and not now. And especially not when all the anger and hurt she'd kept bottled up inside because of his actions were being uncorked so she could spew her venom at him.

5. She listened carefully, straining her ears to hear the steps which had dogged her for the past several minutes, but all was quiet now. A dog barked in the distance, perhaps alerted by an unknown intruder. The faint clop-clop of a passing horse told her a main thoroughfare was just around the corner. If she could make it to that street, there might be a public house nearby. Amid the noise and drink, she would find sanctuary, if only for a little while until the place had to close. But she could worry about that later. Right now she needed to get as far away from her pursuer as possible.

6. “You're right. I miss the sex. I miss holding you, and kissing you, and loving you. I miss listening to you brush your teeth in the mornings. I miss the way you hum to yourself when you're studying. I miss coming back to the apartment and finding you there in those damn grungy sweats, crashed on the sofa. I miss the fun times we had together. I miss the fun times, and the bad times, and the arguments we had when things got hairy. I even miss the petty little things that used to irritate the shit out of me.” He slapped a hand to his chest. “I was the one who walked out. I was in the wrong. And I regret it. Hell, I've been regretting it for the last three years. If there was any fucking way I could turn back the clock, or somehow go back in the past and stop myself, I would.”

Once upon a time, there lived a man with five rambunctious daughters. They were an average American farming family except for one minor detail. The man was a warlock, and all of his daughters were witchlets - half witch and half human.

With Christmas only two days away, Tamberly Blakeney has given up hope of finding her heart's call this year. That is, until Jonathan Mauk walks into the market and into her life.

What she doesn't realize is that there is something in Jonathan's past that deeply disturbs her father. And until Daddy gets all the answers, there could be hell to pay.
