Happy Monday! 

Let’s conquer the heck out of today, and all week long!!

mm2Claim your spot and own it!!

It’s been a busy week! I’m still writing my 2 WIPs. Moreso one more than the other but made some OK progress on it. I always seem to slow down a bit in the middle of a story, pausing to reflect if things are flowing/moving/weaving thoroughly, and if there’s consistent progression for the characters. I hope to nail down a lot more words this week!

I went with some friends last Wednesday to see 50 Shades Darker. It was an OK movie. Better than the first, though for me, I feel they “tamed” Christian a bit too much. There was a lack of that tension between the 2 characters that was heavy in the 1st. I don’t know if it’s the actors are now used to one another or the growth they wanted for Ana dominated everything else. But, for me, an OK movie. Wasn’t wow’d by it. And I think when it comes out on disc, the same friends and I may just get together again to watch it, and make a drinking game. We’ll toss one back for every time Ana’s breasts pop up. I’ll be out cold about 1/3 into the movie. Trust me! LOL

If you’ve been following my blog/social media, you’ll know that the 2nd book in my Canadian Muscle series released last Tuesday. I’m so glad it is out and readers can enjoy it.

Here is a quick link to bookstores where Guarding His Anchor is live >>

And also, Guarding Midnight, book 1 of the series is on sale for a limited time, at 99 cents. You can find that at >>  



Last week was absolutely gorgeous for weather. Sunshine pretty much all week and we could get away with wearing lighter sweaters. Was amazing. I was sitting out on the back deck, feet up on a lawn chair, in the middle of February. In Canada! Never happens. I hope the same for this week.

What’s on my playlist …
I was a boy band kind of teen growing up. And New Kids On the Block will always be my fave, but Backstreet Boys is a close second. They’ve recently teamed up with Florida Georgia Line, and here’s their song. I’m obsessed.

I also spent some time with MY boys this weekend! Yes, my boys — Dean and Sam / Jensen and Jared, watching their Las Vegas 2017 Supernatural Panel. OMG Funny!!! Over an hour, but well worth it. I laughed so hard.



Have a super week ahead, and I’ll see you next Monday!

Happy reading! xoxo

Spotlight ~ Claimed by the Wolf by Libby Bishop #PNR #Shifters #ERom @LibbyBRomance @EvernightPub




When Katee Ellis wakes up naked in a strange bed, unable to recall the events that led to such a state, she understandably begins to panic. The appearance of a man she doesn’t know deepens her concern. She soon learns that she was attacked by a wolf, and will become one within a week’s time. After being human for so long, she doesn’t know how she’ll manage to make that adjustment.

Mathias Blackwell—the strange man, and powerful wolf shifter, who told her of the attack—eases some of her worry. His presence calms her, and makes her feel safe. Their instant attraction grows stronger the longer she’s with him. He promises to protect her against the wolf who attacked her, who also happens to be his brother. She believes him. But his brother has already gotten her away from her loved ones once—can he do it again?



“Hey, Good Lookin’” by Hank Williams greeted Katee Ellis as she woke. Her head pounded, and her mouth was dry as if she had the worst hangover ever. Yet, she couldn’t recall drinking the night before.

As her eyes cleared, she realized she didn’t recognize the ceiling, its chipped and peeling paint. She sat straight up, her head swimming as nausea swept her from the movement. Placing her hands on both sides of her head, sinking them into her hair, she closed her eyes and tried to take deep breaths. When the nausea faded away, she opened her eyes, and then she realized she was completely naked.

What the hell?

She quickly pulled a sheet up and held it at her breasts, trying to figure out how the hell she’d gotten into a rumpled bed in a worn down bedroom.

Hank continued to sing as heavy steps from outside the room caught her attention—she inhaled, scenting the wild. Wait. She inhaled again. Shock coursed through her when she realized she could smell everything around her—the old wood, the man coming toward the room, the cool mid-autumn breeze coming through the barely opened window.

Her heart skipped a beat, and then sped up as panic began to take hold. She dug for a memory to tell her how she’d gotten where she was, but nothing came, which alarmed her more. Through shapeshifting friends she knew what the situation could mean … and she tried her damnedest to calm down, to shove the panic down as her blood pounding in her ears blocked out all other noise.

What the hell happened to me?

“Here, this should help.” The man’s voice was deep, with a British lilt. The sound snapped her back to reality.

She held the blanket closer, tighter.

She looked over slowly, pushing her long, dark red hair out of her eyes. Her gaze settled on a tall, lithe, muscled man. His thermal, long-sleeved shirt clung nicely to his torso. Her sharp vision could plainly see that strong arms were hidden underneath the fabric.

He stepped closer to her, holding out a mug to her. After holding his dark blue gaze for a moment, she reached out and took it. The heat from it felt good as it spread beneath the skin of her hand. Coffee.

As the man moved to the desk and grasped a chair in one hand, she inhaled the scent of the beverage. Heaven. Taking a sip, she tasted the slight bite of whisky, which made her smile softly.

“A little hair of the dog never hurt.” He returned her smile as he set the chair down and took a seat, running a hand through his hair before leaning forward and resting his elbows on his thighs. His body language was telling her something was wrong, but since she was still a little off balance she didn’t ask right off.

“No,” she replied. Taking another sip of coffee, she held the sheet with her other hand. She wasn’t a prude, but she didn’t know this man. “How did I get here? And where is here? And more importantly, who are you?”

Guarding His Anchor Blurb:

Charlotte Weber is no stranger to heartbreak. FBI agent Frank Shaw has swept in and out of her life as though she’s a revolving door, stomping on her heart in the process. Now that she’s finally had enough, he’s back again and seems determined to spin her life out of control.

Frank knows Charlie is the anchor for his lost soul, even though he can’t risk settling down. The demons of his past are too great, and he won’t run the risk of hurting her. This time, his only objective should be locating Charlie’s brother, Sean. But Charlie’s a complication, and not just because she refuses to believe Sean is guilty.

As Frank and Charlie fight for what they believe in, they also try to resist their powerful connection. The future is unclear, but when danger surrounds them, they are each other’s only anchor.

Guarding His Anchor Excerpt:
Charlie closed her eyes and leaned against the door. Tonight had resolved nothing. She’d tried to let Neal down easy, but everything she’d said had gone over his fucking head. Confusion rioted in her skull, throbbing non-stop.

A shift of movement caught her attention, startling her. She opened her eyes and lifted her head, standing tall, on the defense.

Oh, for crying out loud!

All she needed tonight was Frank Shaw in her house, staring at her with anger spitting fire from his eyeballs.

But there he was, eyeing her open collar and cleavage, fists bunched at his sides.

Frustration, sexual and otherwise thanks to him showing up when she least expected, curled around her like molten lava spilling from a volcano.

If he wanted a fight, he’d come to the right place.

“What the hell are you doing sneaking into my house?” she demanded, stomping toward him.

“Calm down. Vikki called, asked me to hang some fucking curtains. She said you were at the bar.”

“Can’t you think up a better excuse than that?”

His eyes roamed over her from head to toe. Damn that spark in his eyes when he gazed at her like that. Anger turned to potent hunger in seconds flat, watching her as if she were the prey and he the hunter … She swallowed hard.

“If I’d known you were home and … busy, I wouldn’t have bothered. Vikki said the back door was open.”

“I’ll talk to her about that.” Charlie sighed, then walked into the kitchen. “Her room is across the hall, last door on the right.”

Undeterred, he followed her. “Hot date, huh?”

“None of your business.” He was the very last person in the world she wanted to discuss Neal with.

He leaned on the island in the center of the room. “I guess Vikki wasn’t even aware you had a date tonight.”

No doubt Vikki didn’t cared anyway. She was Team Charlie and Frank, and Charlie wouldn’t be surprised if her pal had planned the whole thing. Hang curtains, indeed. At this time of night? Without running it past the owner, her roommate? Charlie suspected Vikki was up to no good.

“Doesn’t matter.” Charlie put the last of the wine in the fridge, grabbed a cloth, and cleaned the counters. “You can do it tomorrow when I’m at work. Good-night.” Focused on one spot, she scrubbed hard, hoping he’d take the suggestion.

“You look beautiful.” His soft comment skimmed along her ear as he moved in behind her.

“Frank, don’t. I just had another guy here, for heaven’s sake.”

“Doesn’t matter. It sure didn’t end the way he thought. I know when you’ve been fucked good and satisfied and when you’re not.”

Motivation and More #Writing #Romance #ComingSoon

Happy Monday! 

Let’s get the new week started with some positivity!mm5

Nothing feels better than doing what you love!
And I love writing!

Let’s conquer the heck out of today, and all week long!!

I’ll be starting the week by jumping back into writing my WIP, the second in the “Stirred by Love” series, which is the sequel to Stirring Up Dirty. I’m over 31k now and it’s going well. I was recently surprised when a gorgeous Tiger started growling in my ear. Bobby, for those who have read Fighting For Honor, surrounded me for two days before he finally settled enough after I wrote over 1k into his story. I wasn’t expecting to start his shifter story til after I was done with the other WIP, but now I have 2 on the go and it’s very new for me. I don’t like doing more than one at a time, but when you have a Siberian Tiger breathing down your neck, an author has to do as she is told. LOL

And some FABULOUS news! GUARDING HIS ANCHOR releases … tomorrow!!! Yep, Feb 21st, Frank and Charlie’s story will be live for all to enjoy. I love these characters so very much. This series just captures my heart.

Read an Exclusive Excerpt from Guarding His Anchor >

Here’s a bit of info…



Excerpts/Book Pages:
Book 1: Guarding Midnight
Book 2: Guarding His Anchor

It has been some glorious weather here in Ontario! My area anyway. We’ve had 4 days of sunshine, warm temps and I’ve done a lot of walking around the property soaking it all in. This winter has been brutal with freeze rain/snow, so it’s glorious to have some sunshine. I’ll even put up with the muddy shoes/boots… for now! That too will grow tiresome. But right now, I’m perfectly happy with life and warm weather!

I’ve been writing to a lot of music lately as well, which is a change from the usual silence. Here’s the current fave song on repeat.



Have a super week ahead, and I’ll see you next Monday!

Happy reading! xoxo
