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!
Evernight’s 4th Birthday Blog Hop is coming!
Evernight has a birthday coming up, and we’re celebrating with a blog hop bash! Not only will you get a chance to read all kinds of great new erotic romance (and maybe find a couple of new favorite authors), not only is each author doing a personal giveaway, but Evernight is also celebrating its birthday with grand prizes given out to lucky commenters!
Evernight Grand Prizes:
• Choice of Kindle Fire HD or Kobo Arc 7
• $100 Amazon GC
• $50 Evernight GC
I’m still working on my personal giveaways — I think I’ll do a combination of Amazon and Evernight gift cards and a one of a kind piece of jewelry from Belaurient Arts to celebrate one of my upcoming books. I’m torn between doing an aqua Viking knit bangle for Breaker Zone and an elegant gunmetal chainmail choker set with topaz crystals for Planet Alpha: Assassin.
Or maybe I’ll just do both. I’m wild and crazy that way, you know. So set your calendars and join in the fun from October 3 to October 13!
Breaker Zone (Olympic Cove 2) sells to Evernight
When Dr. Nick Gardiner goes on the run from a psychotic ex and ends up at Olympic Cove, the last thing he expects to find is his friend Ian living with two redheaded demigods and learning how to be a storm god. Adding to the confusion is a wounded merman named Aidan who washes up in the cove, requiring Nick’s professional help. As it turns out, the handsome mer and his partner Liam have other plans for the ER doctor — to claim him as their destined mate and fulfill his need to submit.
A chance encounter at a local junk shop reveals that Nick has his own role to play in Ian’s battle against the insane Nereid Thetis. Under the reluctant mentorship of Chiron, Nick must master the use of the Rod of Asclepius if he wants to rescue his mates from a deadly fate and help Ian save the planet.
Two to Tango on sale for 99 cents this week!
What? You mean you haven’t read my hilarious M/M SF caper novel Two to Tango yet? I’m…well, I’m crushed. But I’m also strong, so I will dab the tears from my damask cheeks and think about it all tomorrow at Tara.
Now that I’ve finished pretending to be Scarlett O’Hara, do I have a deal for you! For the next week Two to Tango is only 99 cents at Evernight Publishing. And if that isn’t enough to persuade you, here’s a little more about the story:
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?
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.
