Welcome to Nicola Cameron Writes! I’m your hostess Nic — make yourself at home and enjoy some naughty erotic fiction with chewy plot-filled centers, and all the bon mots you can handle. And if you see one or, er, five cats, just ignore them — they like to think they run the place.
In addition to my Blog, I also host a Bookshelf of my published work, a short About page (all true, I swear), a Free Reads page with some of my flash and short fiction for your reading enjoyment, a WIP page where I keep y’all updated on my current projects, and will be adding a Guest Blogger section once my schedule opens up (at this point, I’m projecting that will happen in 2015). Thanks for stopping by!
Planet Alpha: Assassin sells to Evernight
Talk about a lovely vacation surprise! There I was, sitting in my hotel room in London (Ramón and I were attending the World Science Fiction Convention, long story) when I checked my mail. Lo and behold, an acceptance email for my Planet Alpha story appeared!
The current release date is sometime in October, and the acquiring editor decided that Assassin was an appropriate title in honor of my delightfully sarcastic Xyran assassin Zhan. If you’ve been following my Mid Week Teases for this story, you’ll soon be able to read the whole thing.
A routine wilderness patrol goes horribly wrong when Sergeant Deacon Shea and his patrol partner are ambushed by scavengers. After a firefight leaves his partner dead and their vehicle destroyed, Deacon is forced to hike out of the mountains alone. Stumbling across a grounded Alphan shuttle, he thinks he’s found a ride home with the Alphan warrior Taric and his Xyran associate Zhan. The handsome aliens, however, have other plans for Deacon — to make him their mate.
Forced to hide their bond from their respective governments, Taric and Zhan never expected to find their third bondmate on Earth, and definitely not in the middle of an unauthorized mission to stop a vicious Xyran slavemaster. Neither of them can resist the urge to claim Deacon, but will their new mate help them catch their old foe, or turn them over to Earth — and Alphan — justice?
Executive Assistant: Manlove Edition now available from Evernight
Evernight Publishing’s new anthologies Executive Assistant and Executive Assistant: Manlove Edition are now available on their website, and will be available from All Romance eBooks, Bookstrand, and Amazon on June 20.
As well as some delicious stories from a collection of brilliant writers, Executive Assistant: Manlove Edition also includes my naughty contemporary M/M short story “The Art of Grant Management.” I always knew those years of administering NSF grants would eventually come in handy.
Straitlaced scientist Dr. Peter Loeffler and freewheeling administrative assistant John Quincy are the Odd Couple of the Kenilworth Research Center; their ongoing battles over funding are the stuff of legend, and their bickering can be heard up and down the hallways of the center. But in the aftermath of a very important site visit, the scientist and the admin find out that they may have more in common than they first assumed.
Two to Tango now available from Evernight!
My M/M science fiction/caper/erotic romance/I don’t even know what to call this anymore Two to Tango is now available from Evernight and other online retailers!
A ship’s engineer that looks like a shrub and sounds like Billy Connolly. A long-suffering AI. A dashing intergalactic art thief in a kilt. A somewhat bewildered archaeologist who’s forced to go on the run with said intergalactic art thief when galactic cops mistakenly think he’s the thief’s inside man on the last job. Unrequited (at least at first) sexual tension! Daring break ins! Hijinks ensue all over the place! What can I say — it’s a fun book.
Rory MacLellan, AKA the Highlander, may be the most successful interstellar art thief in the Known Worlds, but he still has a conscience. So when he runs into a suicidal museum worker during his latest job, he has no choice but to stun the man and rescue him from certain death.
Dr. Dmitri Grigoryev was an up-and-coming exoarchaeologist until a disastrous dig left his career in tatters. Hungry, broke, and desperate, the last thing he expected was a dashing thief to come along and save his life.
Thrown together by accident and with interstellar police on their tail, Rory and Dmitri reluctantly join forces for a major heist. But will their simmering attraction get in the way, or prove that they were meant to be together?
Storm Season now available in print
My first novel Storm Season (Book One in the Olympic Cove series) is now available in print! For those of you out there who prefer a physical novel to ebooks, it can be purchased from Evernight’s CreateSpace account now, and will be available at Amazon in a week and other online booksellers in 6-8 weeks.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go flail like a Muppet around the house for an hour or two. My book’s in print, my book’s in print!
Trickster now available from Evernight
Delaney Smith, coyote shifter and CTO at Trickster Technologies, thinks humans are bland, boring, and undateable. So the last thing he expects is scenting his mate in the Trickster offices — a mate who is not only male, but quite human.
Programmer Mark Fellowes is shocked when the CTO at his contract job makes a pass at him, and even more surprised at his temptation to respond. Straight and dating a career-minded executive, he’s never even thought about kissing another man — until now.
When Mark is attacked by thieves trying to steal company files, Delaney must put aside his preconceptions to protect his mate. But will a criminal bent on destroying Trickster Tech separate them before he can stake his claim?
