Conflict of Victory is live!

At long last, book four of the Panthera Chronicles is finally here! I’ve affectionately dubbed this one my ‘road trip’ novel and, researching all the neat places the crew got to go was a blast and certainly added some destinations to my bucket list. If you haven’t already grabbed a copy, get one now!

Conflict of Interest is an enemies to lovers romance continuing where Troy and Andi’s story left off. There’s an assassin on the loose, and the only way Andi truly gets her life back is if the half-Tigress is eliminated. Fate weaves a twisted web, however, and Eli must step carefully to ensure the future of his people.

The Lions, once their greatest enemies, are now their fastest allies.

If you’re new to the series, or need to catch up, I’ll be putting the rest of the books on sale sometime this weekend once everything at Amazon catches up behind the scenes. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for details and links.

Moving on from the new release, I’m taking a brief break from Panthera-land and playing with a dark new contemporary romance. The working title is Speechless, and I came up with the idea because, as a survivor of sexual assault, the new song from Disney’s Aladdin really resonated with something in me. I wanted to write a piece other survivors could relate to, a novel that really goes into the psychological effects of that type of abuse and showing how, no matter how dark the night may seem, a new dawn is only a few hours away.

There will be trigger warnings for this book, but if dark romance is your jam, then I’ve got a heaping helping coming your way before the end of the year. After that, we’ll return to Panther-land with book five, Wrong Side of the Bars featuring Sasha and Lita. There’s a preview of the first chapter of their story at the end of Conflict of Interest, so be sure to pick up your copy today.

The last item on the news update is: Paperbacks! Previously, only A Queen’s Trust was available in paperback. I’m waiting on the final cover proofs from the artist and then I’ll have the rest of the paperbacks uploaded and available in September. Exciting!

Back in the swing of things

Howdy, folks!

So, my last post let you know what was coming up for me, schedule wise. I mentioned needing to have a surgery done, and all the things.

Well, make that two, because a complication from the first surgery nearly wiped me out. Thank -heavens- I wasn’t home alone when it happened. I couldn’t move, and I couldn’t get to my phone to call 911. Things could have ended very differently for me, I’m afraid. Without going into too many details, this second surgery nearly quadrupled my recovery time. I couldn’t even think about writing for about a month afterwards. I was too busy trying to figure out what normal life was and strengthening my core back up enough that I could walk without a cane again. Fun stuff. Let’s not do that again though, shall we?

So, with a month’s delay, Lesser Victory has finally released today! I’ll give you all a moment to cheer.

-crickets chirp-

Ahem. Moving on! Eli’s book is up next, because plot reasons. Go read Lesser Victory to find out why. It’s free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers, after all. We should see that book out here in August of this year, and then we’re bound for the Pride lands… well, the lands of Chase’s Pride, anyway.

For anyone keeping track at home, Kyla the Great Dane puppy is officially five months old and weighs in at around 75 pounds. Sheesh! She is the best cuddler, though, and has the sweetest way ever to wake me up. Velvet kisses on either my ear or foot, whatever she can reach. Seeing as she’s already taller than me on her hind legs, that’s… pretty much everything!

I’ll catch you around for the next blog update.
