Two men stood on the threadbare rug in front of the hearth. They both wore rifles strapped across their backs, but Eliza wasn’t afraid.

One was a stocky, solidly built man with dark, greasy hair to his collar, streaked with gray. His face was hard and lined, his eyes dark. He leered at them as they stepped in, and Eliza’s skin crawled. She had never seen him before, though she knew many of the men from the logging camp at the base of the mountain.

The other man, however—he was breathtaking, a sight to behold. Tall, so tall he could have reached up and gripped the bare beams of the ceiling. He was gloriously masculine, hewn from muscle and raw power, with the arms of a man who chopped wood all day and the lithe, powerful body of a hunter and mountain man. He had a thick, dark beard, short and neatly trimmed. His intense eyes glimmered in the firelight. A knit cap hid his hair, but his face was proud and majestic. He wore a red flannel shirt and suspenders, and leather boots to his knee.

He reminded her of the stories her mother told her as a child, about the spirits of the mountain—men, turned into tall, impossibly strong warriors in death, left there to protect the people on the mountain from harm.

Eliza stepped forward, forcing authority into her voice. “What do you want? Why are you here?”

Cover reveal, upcoming releases, news, and a contest!

First things first: I can now announce my novella Her Darkest Secret will be released on February 6th with Muse It HOT Publishing! Just look at this beautiful cover:

Only one man can tame the beast inside her…

Eliza Duncan has a secret only a wild mountain and a powerful man can keep. Abandoned in the Tennessee mountains after the death of her parents and now the only one left to protect her sickly younger sister Mary, she finds a way to survive, even after a vicious attack changes her life forever.

Lucien Grey, the man who nursed her back to health, has vowed to protect her from danger.

His passion and tenderness are the only things keeping her internal struggle at bay. But when a werewolf appears on the mountain and becomes a threat, they must fight it together, as well as the mysterious man who terrorizes her sister. Could they be one and the same? Will Eliza’s secret remain safe, or will she become a victim once again?

Coming February 6, 2015 from Muse It HOT Publishing

News:

I’m also happy to announce my novella One Night In Chicago will be part of the City Nights series from Tirgearr Publishing! I don’t have a release date yet, as I just signed the contract, but I’ll keep everyone updated when I know more. The other novellas in the series are utterly delicious and sexy and I can’t wait to be a part of it, alongside some other wonderful erotic romance authors.

Getting Inked Again

On the dotted line, that is–or in this case, digitally inked, since the contract was digital!

Today I signed the contract for my story ‘Her Darkest Secret’ with Muse It Up publishing (their erotica imprint, more specifically). It won’t be released until Spring 2015 but I’m still pretty excited! Check out my current projects page for more information about it.
