Germ (Demon Elite #6)

Image
Coming September 9th! to eXtasy books

Germ is a charming, flirtatious genius behind a computer screen, but when he has to converse face-to-face, he’s an awkward mess.
Jeremy Russell has always compensated for his weirdness by making jokes, usually at inappropriate times. All his friends call him Germ, after all. Give him a computer and he’s happy most days. Then he meets Reggie Mize and discovers an attraction he just can’t ignore.
Reggie has gone his entire life without really knowing love. His sister, Victoria, certainly doesn’t love him, considering she tried to sell him to the highest bidder. When Jeremy starts paying attention to him, he’s not sure how to get over his shyness long enough to hold a conversation, not to mention ask the man on a date. Can both men get over their awkwardness long enough to make it work?

The Demon Elite Men - Ashley (Demon Elite #5)

Image
Ashley (Demon Elite #5)


Ashley Wilkins is just a farm boy who joined the military right out of high school. Getting off the farm was his main motivation for joining. It turned out he was pretty good at interrogating prisoners of war, which turned out to be a nice way of saying torture whoever the government told him too. Luckily Justin recruited him and he became a Demon Elite member, which didn't involve the torture that made him feel like a monster. Still, what's done is done and he can't change his past.





Iain Liron is a recovering drug addict that wants nothing more than to live a peaceful, drug-free life. Unfortunately, his brother Raven has a very dangerous job that spills over onto Iain. Iain gets kidnapped and tortured by his brother's ex-boss.

Throwback Thursday - Places Like Home (PIckleville #7)

Image
One year ago today Places Like Home came out. This standalone story is part of the Pickleville Series and tackles some deep subject matter, like what kind of emotional trauma comes with having a stalker. It also has one of my favorite characters in it. Jackson is so blonde and dreamy. You'll love him!


Running away from his problems isn’t an option anymore.
For three years, Dakota Weaver has done nothing but run from a man that wants to hurt him. He changes his name and takes a job as far away from the last place he lived as he could get. The Heath’s are great people and he loves his job. It reminds him of the home he left behind all those years ago. Dakota has looked over his shoulder for far too long and has come to the end of his rope.
The first time Jackson sees Dakota on his best friend, Travis Heath’s farm, he wants the man. All of Jackson’s flirting gets him nowhere with the man though. Jackson overhears a telephone conversation Dakota has with his brother and gets a whole n…

Crafty Tuesday - What's in a good Blurb

This is the one element to every book that most authors seem to dread. This is apparent if you follow some of your favorite authors on social media. Someone is always complaining about having to the cursed Blurb.

The blurb is necessary, though. Arguably, it's one of the most important element to any story because it's the first thing a potential buyer will read. Why wouldn't you want to make it the best you possibly can?

Not sure how. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Make sense - Go ahead, roll your eyes. I'll wait.... Now, I recently read a blurb that didn't do this. This seems like an easy thing to achieve and common sense, but remember how close you are to your story. What makes sense to you, might not to the audience who hasn't read the book yet. So take a step back from the story. Give it a few days if you have to and then come back to it. Maybe even get someone else to read the blurb.

If you don't write anything else for your audience, write a go…

Saving Iain means finding a small bit of redemption but what Ash gets instead is so much more.
Ashley Wilkins has done some bad things, torturing people until they give him the information he wants, but all that was in his past. Making amends for all those wrong doings will never happen. He knows that, but that doesn’t stop him from trying, which is why he takes a break from interrogation to save Iain Liron’s life. Iain is a recovering drug addict who understands all too well what finding forgiveness means. Can he make Ash see that he’s more than just his past sins?

Ash sat next to Max in the backseat of the SUV. The seating arrangement worked out well for him because Max never asked him why he was so quiet. He just put an arm around his shoulders. Ash wasn’t the cuddling type, but he had to admit that the small gesture from his friend was comforting. The conversation in the car on the way to the extraction site was typical and put him at ea…

Growing Up.

Bronwyn Heeley and I are sharing a bit about ourselves. When you're finished reading about me growing up on a farm in the midwest (Yeah, sorry. I got nothing exciting about my childhood), go read Bronwyn's blog about her childhood. https://bronwynheeley.blogspot.com/
So Growing Up? Family?
Like I said already I don't have a very exciting story. My parents were divorced when I was very younger. As a result, my family expanded to include many siblings: Five sisters and two brothers. In my family, step-siblings and step-parents aren't a thing. Family is family and that's just the way it is. Having said that, no my biological parents didn't give birth to all those kids. Lucky for them, they had help.
Being a child who comes from a divorce, isn't an easy thing. As any kid out there and he/she will tell you the same thing. Hell, some of them even have horror stories and I'm no different. I will say that despite the kinks we've all managed to work it out enou…

When Love comes suddenly, sometimes you just have to go with it.
Xander Newell isn’t the one nightstand type of guy. He wants a commitment with someone who is willing to put up with his crazy family and being away on the job sometimes. Finding someone who is willing to put up his brothers, who he lives and works with on a daily basis is hard to find. Still Xander’s not willing to compromise.
Xander gets called off bodyguard duty to investigate this religious cult that may be tied to some kidnappings of young men. He finds Aaron Keller, one of the missing young men. What he doesn’t expect is the instant attraction and longing for the man. Xander just wants to keep Aaron safe, even if that means backing off.

The Journey of Jimini Renn - Available Everywhere

Image
If you haven't read The Journey of Jimini Renn because you're a NOOK reader or All Romance eBooks, then you are in luck. 



In a world without surface water, Jimini Renn wants nothing more than to live inside the protective walls of Adam City for the rest of his life, but his little brother has other ideas. 

As far as Jimini is concerned, Adam City has everything he needs. It has a well that provides much-needed water, food, and safety from the dangers of the outside world. When his bookworm of a brother leaves to chase waterfalls, Jimini must follow even though he knows it will probably mean his death. His chances of survival are grim when the first person he meets on the outside pulls a gun on him. No one who calls himself a slaver and has a gun has Jimini’s safety in mind, even if he is sexy. The journey Jimini expects isn’t the one he gets.
