Happy Labor Day!
A few friends and I have come together to HOP through the holiday with tidbits of this and that, book news, excerpts, prizes and more. Be sure to visit each author in the list below for more chances to enter some great giveaways.
September 3rd…where has the time gone? Here in Canada, kids return to school tomorrow. WOOT!! Well, not really. I detest the routines of early mornings, the inability to just take off and drive for the day if we want to…I love to have my kids home, what can I say? Plus, new teachers, new learning habits (that are vastly different than when I was a kid), new dramas to deal with for at least a month as each kid settles in.
It also means that summer is very quickly coming to an end. Haying season is over, there won’t be new calves running around the farm for months, the chickens will need to be isolated and kept warm in our heated corrals…
I’m a country gal who isn’t crazy about this time of year, can you tell!? LOL
But even with all the haying, cattle and chicken rustling, I’ve managed to get some writing in. THREE WIPs on the go…the voices can be exhausting…and have FOUR new releases in the next month. Yes, you heard me, FOUR new releases.
Awakenings – In the Arms of the Law series, Book 2 releases Sept 12 at Decadent Publishing
Tied Down – In the Arms of the Law series, Book 2.5 (short story) releases Sept 14 at Decadent Publishing
Dare – stand-alone releases Sept 21 at Evernight Publishing
Wild Thunder – In the Arms of the Law series, Book 2.75 (short story), releases Oct 2 at Decadent Publishing
And, aren’t these covers awesome?!
For your reading pleasure, I’ll share a brief excerpt of TIED DOWN – contemporary erotic romance, light bondage, and drops in on Brady & Bella (from Illusions), and Brady’s up to no-good…well, in a delightful kind of way *g*

Isabella stirred at a tug on her ankle. She shifted, not in any way eager to wake up.
Snuggling her cheek deeper into the pillow, she sighed. The web of slumber curled around her as she relaxed again.
At the shuffle of footsteps and a thump, she stirred. Her eyes flew open and she lifted her head. As she shifted to her side, she gasped.
Why couldn’t she move?
Jesus, what the hell?
Danger screamed through her mind while she took in the room around her. Right where she’d fallen asleep, in Brady’s bed.
No need to fear for her safety. Right?
“What the fuck is this?” Damn the bindings around her wrists and feet. “Brady!” she screamed. She’d kill the bastard who dared to enter their personal space. Cripes, if he’s been hurt, she’d carve out their hearts and throw the bodies in the ocean.
“I’m right here, babe.”
His head appeared over the foot of the bed. Her heart skipped a beat. Safe. Her head fell back in relief. She’d die if something happened to him. Could never relive him ever being hurt again. She’d barely survived once before when he’d been stabbed and almost blown to bits. She did not ever want to go through anything like it again.
“You okay, babe? These scarves aren’t too tight, are they?”
So lost in her own thoughts, she forgot she lay there, tied like some prisoner.
“What the hell? What’s going on?” He knelt at the end of the bed. She gaped as she took in her naked body, the scarves holding her legs and arms captive. Her heart rate accelerated. She had no control over any of this. Desperate to get out of the ties and the situation, she pulled hard, jerked her limbs to escape their captivity.
“Fuck! Goddamn it. Let me loose.”
