I personally want to wish Evernight Publishing a wonderful and very happy fifth birthday, and a huge thank you for taking a chance on me and publishing what is turning into the fantasy erotic romance equivalent of Harry Potter (I swear, Storm Season was supposed to be short and sweet. Next thing I know, I have a six-book epic series in progress. I ask you).

Speaking of my books with Evernight, here’s a look at my first Evernight title and my latest release in said epic series:

ABBM_smFirst Evernight Release: A Boon by Moonlight (Romance on the Go)

Ex-Marine Zach Mayhew is willing to do anything for his dying grandmother, even find a fairy ring and beg that she be allowed to spend her last days in Faerie.

But when a gorgeous Sidhe noble demands a night in his bed in return, Zach learns that a boon asked by moonlight can have unexpected consequences for his heart.

“You’re wearing entirely too many clothes,” Jerrek said, rubbing his naked groin against Zach’s still clothed one. “Take them off at once.”

Zach couldn’t help grinning at the order. “Are you always this bossy?”

“I prefer to think of it as authoritative. What part of ‘sidhe lord’ didn’t you grasp?”

DeepWaterLatest Evernight Release: Deep Water (Olympic Cove Book 3)

Poseidon, God of the Sea, has spent millennia alone due to a single terrible act. His consort Amphitrite has sworn never to forgive him, and he’s forced to live with the knowledge that he drove an innocent girl to her doom.

But when one of the Olympic Cove cottages gets an occupant with an all-too-familiar soul, Poseidon discovers that the Fates have given him a second chance. Now he must try to right the wrongs of the past and win back both his beloved consort and the mate he betrayed.

Assuming, of course, that the Mad Nereid Thetis doesn’t interfere…

“I’ll be quite honest with you—I’m exceedingly rich,” Poseidon said. “I don’t know how to cook because I have people to do that for me. My wealth gives me the great luxury of doing what I choose to do. And I choose to protect what I love as best I can against the degradation of mankind.”

“Oh, great,” Griffin sighed. “You’re Batman.”

Bus-Stop-Ad2As an author, I’m thrilled to share my stories with you and Evernight helps make my books shine! Here’s one reason why I love Evernight Publishing — in a business filled with wannabes and nevergonnas who think all they need is a website and some publishing software to become a successful ebook publisher, Evernight Publishing shows everyone how the pros do it. Their business plan is solid, their bookkeeping is transparent and immaculate, their editors know their stuff, their PR person is constantly coming up with ways to help promote your books, their covers from Sour Cherry Designs are fabulous, and all of this hard work and dedication is very much apparent in the final product. When you buy an Evernight Publishing book, you are not just getting a great story; you also know that the writer is being treated fairly and professionally. And when writers are treated fairly and professionally, it means they write more of the stuff you love!

ROTG3Dcovers_smNow, how am I celebrating Evernight’s third birthday, you ask? Well, I’m offering two prizes of my own — a $25 Amazon gift certificate, and a collection of all my backlist in your choice of ebook format, PLUS the lucky winner of the backlist will also get a sneak preview of the first three chapters of Breaker Zone, Book Two in the Olympic Cove series.

And now, here’s a teaser from my latest Evernight Romance on the Go book, Grading the Curve. Enjoy!

GTC2_editEllen Ragsdale is a scholarship student on the verge of graduation. After four years of sacrificing a personal life in order to put herself through school, she just wants to get her degree and start her life. The only thing she’ll miss about college is Professor Cord.

Alexander Cord is a widowed English professor who is the bane of his students and the despair of his colleagues. None of them know that he hides his loneliness and guilt behind a sardonic facade. But after years of being alone, he finds himself drawn to the one woman he can’t have — the studious, reclusive Ellen.

School rules have kept them at arm’s length all year long. But on the last night of Ellen’s college career, the two of them will risk everything to find out if their mutual attraction is just a classroom crush, or something more.

Where to Buy:


Teaser

“Did you know that you always blush when you talk to me?” he said quietly. “It’s charming. You look like a medieval maiden receiving her first suitor.”

It felt like someone had painted fire across her skin. She ducked her head, staring dumbly at the hallway’s scarred paint. He couldn’t know. Nobody knew that about her. It wasn’t that obvious.

Was it?

“Interesting.” She could hear the smile in his voice. “I meant it as a compliment, but perhaps I struck closer to the truth than I’d intended.” He moved closer, and she could feel the heat from his whole body now, warming her like an invisible caress. “Are you?”

She swallowed hard. He couldn’t be asking what she thought he was asking. “A-am I—”

“A maiden. A virgin. I believe a popular term is ‘unicorn bait.'” His voice dropped, turning into a soft rumble. “I have to admit, I’m puzzled as to how someone as lovely and intelligent as you could still be virginal.”

Her entire face now felt like it was on fire. She’d gone on the occasional date, usually doubling with Keisha or Dianne, but once the guys found out what her schedule was like they didn’t bother calling again. “Too busy, I guess. Working, studying.”

To her surprise, cool fingers slid under her chin, gently turning her face up. “What a shame,” Cord said, his voice low and soft. “But if it’s of any consolation, men your age do tend to be rather slapdash and impatient when it comes to women. I assure you, you haven’t missed out on much by skipping the undergraduate sexual circus.” The façade of the academic disappeared. Underneath was a man she didn’t know, warm and standing so close to her. “That being said, I wonder … would you be willing to consider me?”

“What—” Her throat clicked, it was so dry. She swallowed and tried again. “What are you saying?”

He tilted his head to the side. “I want to take you to bed, Miss Ragsdale. I want to kiss that pink mouth of yours, undress you ever so slowly, play with those gorgeous breasts and suck your nipples before I caress every inch of your body. I want to bury my tongue between your legs and lap at your clit, and when you’re dripping wet I want to bury my cock in you. I want to see that sweet mouth of yours open and scream my name as I make you come over and over again.” Now she could smell his cologne, something masculine, woody, and underneath that, the musk of clean male. “Come home with me tonight, Miss Ragsdale. Let me make love to you. I promise you, you won’t regret it.”
