Two Series Come Together!
Saturday, April 6th, 2013
Back in 2004, I wrote a novella for Penguin books called, “Dare to Desire.” It introduced a world of sexy spies who worked for the Arm, a super-secret division of the CIA and T-45, a rogue organization that did the kind of espionage work that even governments didn’t want to touch. I loved that world and wanted to write more in it, but my career went in another direction…
Independent publishing has given me a chance to explore that world again–and to marry it into the DIRTY series, starring my intrepid and kick-ass security specialist, Marisela Morales. The result is my new series: DIRTY DARE.
There will be three installments this year and the first, THE RESCUE, is available now at Amazon for your Kindle or Kindle app. It’s a short story (just under 100 pages) priced at .99. It stars Marisela’s boss, Brynn Blake, and a mysterious former spy named Sean Devlin, who’s been kidnapped and tortured for information he does not have.

Classic Books…New Collection!
Tuesday, January 1st, 2013
One of the things I hear most from my readers is how much they enjoy my kick-ass heroines. Inspired by my readers, I’ve put together a collection of my three toughest broads: Marisela, Mariah and Macy. Mmmmm…good! I decided to call the collection KICK ASS and it’s available now for your Kindle at a special, limited-time low price!
You can get it here…or buy it for a friend!
Also, for all my Nook readers, I also put together a collection of the entire Phantom series…three books for only $2.99. It’s at Barnes & Noble for a limited time…so get it while it’s hot!
It’s also available for your Kindle, by clicking this link.

I’m so excited to finally announce that the third installment in the “Dirty” sexy-suspense series, starring my favorite ex-gang girl, Marisela Morales, is available for purchase!
The brand-new, never-before-published, DIRTY LITTLE CHRISTMAS, is on-sale now at Amazon for your Kindle or your Kindle App for ONLY .99!
Marisela Morales has a secret…and after a year of successful assignments as a security specialist, she knows how to keep one. But when a man on a mission to claim his birthright changes Marisela’s Christmas surprise into a treacherous game of cat and mouse, she’s forced to turn to the one partner who has never let her down—sexy Frankie Vega. Can they save an unborn child caught in a deadly power-play…or will this holiday season end without a Christmas miracle?
Read an excerpt here.
The book will be available exclusively at Amazon for the next 90 days so that I can take advantage of some great promotional opportunities. If you don’t have a Kindle, but you have a smart phone, tablet or computer, you can download the free Kindle app and get the book right away. If not, stay tuned for information of when it will be available for other formats.
If you read the story, I’d love to hear what you think! Word of mouth is so important to a book’s success, so please leave a review at Amazon. I truly appreciate your continued support. This new, original work would never have happened without the encouragement of readers like you!

Dear Readers: I’ve recently decided to take all of my self-published books out of Smashwords distribution, meaning that soon, they will go off-sale at iTunes, Kobo, Sony, etc. This is a business decision based on many factors. If you would like to buy these books for your device, please do so now. I’m not sure if/when they’ll be back up again.
Also, if you are reading on your iPad, you will still be able to download my books through the Kindle app. Right now, they’re all at B&N as well (except Dirty Little Secrets) but Dirty Little Lies will be going down from there very shortly.
In this world of self-publishing, the business decisions that used to belong to the publisher are now mine…and as much as I hate putting all my eggs in one publisher’s basket (Amazon), for now, it is the best business decision I can make while I take advantage of promotional opportunities that Amazon offers that currently, the other venues do not.
Thank you for understanding!

I now have two works up for only .99 at your favorite digital book retailers!
PHANTOM PLEASURES, the first in my sexy paranormal trilogy about 18th century brothers trapped by a Romani curse and the modern-day women who seek to free them from the darkest of magic, is now available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo and all other formats through Smashwords for less than a dollar! The book was originally released by Signet/NAL in 2008…but if you missed it then, now is the time to scoop it up! It’s a full novel for only .99!
When hotshot hotel developer Alexa Chandler finally finds the perfect property for her next luxury resort, she has no idea of the black magic she’s about to unleash. Thanks to vivid tales from the locals, no one has breached the shores of the mysterious island or entered the abandoned castle that is its centerpiece in recent memory. But once inside, Alexa discovers another mystery—the portrait of a dark and brooding nobleman.
With a single touch, Alexa unleashes a phantom who has been trapped within the canvas for over two hundred years.
Contained by a gypsy curse, Damon Forsyth has had centuries to think of nothing but revenge and retribution until intense desire draws the beautiful Alexa to his lair. Though free of the painting, he is still bound to the castle. Only by using the dark magic that enslaves him can he initiate a game of seduction that will end with his freedom—and her undoing.
Unable to resist, Alexa surrenders to Damon’s ghostly touch. But will she thwart the magic that holds Damon in thrall…or sacrifice her own mortality in the name of love?
The second .99 deal is for a ultra-sensual novella, DARE ME, originally published by Signet/NAL. It’s short, but intense…set in New Orleans, it’s about sexy spies who have to decide if they should reignite their passionate love affair or save the world…or both.
Look for another .99 deal to be coming soon…in the meantime, if you’ve already read the books and enjoyed them, please tell your friends! If you haven’t read them, don’t miss the chance to check them out for this discounted price!
Just in time for the holidays…
Sunday, December 25th, 2011
I know a lot of you received either a new digital reader or bookstore gift cards for your holiday gifts, so just in time for your shopping pleasure, the digital re-releases of the Phantom series are available for sale!
PHANTOM PLEASURES and PHANTOM’S TOUCH are up at Amazon for the Kindle and at Smashwords for all other formats, including Nook, Sony, Kobo, iPad, iPhone and for your PC. If you’ve recently signed up for my newsletter or followed the directions on my Facebook fanpage (under Contest) you can get a coupon and receive the digital reprint of DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS for FREE!
Also, my .99 cent novella, DARE ME, is always a bargain for a short, but super-sexy story of intrigue and lost loves.
I hope you all have a fabulous holiday season and a spectacular new year!

Yes, I’m talking about Marisela Morales, the sexy, street-smart star of my DIRTY series, is available again!
After retaining the rights from the original publisher, Simon and Schuster (Pocket Books), I have repackaged and re-released the first two Marisela adventures, DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS and DIRTY LITTLE LIES for digital-only release. So if you have a Kindle, a Nook, a Sony ereader, or other digital device (including an iPad or smartphone) you can revisit my favorite former bounty-hunter…or for some of you, meet her for the first time!
And in 2012, I’ll be writing a third, brand-new book for Marisela and will be publishing it myself under my Bookgoddess LLC label. I’ve lined up a proofreader and a cover designer (in fact, the cover should be done soon!) and am talking to a couple of editors. The book will have the same quality as my previous books, even though it will go direct-to-consumer without a publisher. It’s a brave new publishing world we’re living in!
If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, you need to do that! In a week or so, I’ll be giving away a BRAND NEW Amazon Kindle to one of my subscribers…AND my next newsletter will include information not only on how to win a half dozen FREE books, but also register you to win an Amazon FIRE. Exciting, yes? You can sign up on my homepage, right on top!
Lastly…if you have a spare buck on you and would like to read (or re-read) a short, sexy spy-themed romance, my novella DARE ME is still available for sale at various digital outlets.
I’m currently working on two new novellas for release through Harlequin Blaze…more on those soon!
