I'm talking about fairy tales and what they have to do with Liberating Lacey, book 3 of the Marks Mercenaries series over at the SWEET 'N SEXY DIVAS BLOG. I'm also sharing a teaser from the book. Be sure to stop by and check it out.
I've been sharing weekly romance releases on my Facebook pages for forever. I do it because I like to support fellow authors and it makes it easier for readers to find new books.
I decided it was time to share them on my blog. This is by no means all the releases, but the ones I've managed to pull together from Facebook friends and authors I enjoy to read. Congratulations to all the authors with new books releasing this week!

Here's a teaser from Salvaging Abby, book 4 of the Marks Mercenaries series.
Vaden swore under
his breath. He lowered his weapon and slowly removed his helmet, facing the
woman who called herself Abe. Because now that he’d had time to study her, he
had no doubt in his mind that the person holding a weapon on him was indeed
And he happened to
know exactly who she was. “Hello, Abigail.”
He took the blast
to the chest, staggering back a step. She’d shot him. The little vixen had
actually shot him. She was just like her brother Flynn. Shoot first and ask
He caught himself
before he grinned. Then he lunged forward as she tried to detach from his ship.
He grabbed her arm and dragged her onto his vessel.
She fought him,
ramming her elbows against his ribs, stomping her foot against his instep. But
he felt none of it through his high-tech battlesuit. “Let me go, you son of a
bitch,” she yelled. She fired again, this time hitting the door. It slid shut,
the ship assumed it was being attacked and automatically went on total
ordered. He grabbed her hand and held the weapon down. “I’m not going to hurt
you. Drop the blaster.”
“Not on your life,
Vaden was not used
to being disobeyed. As a commander in the Gravasian space fleet, he was
accustomed to his men following orders without question. Maybe it was only
women who didn’t listen. First his intended bride and now this woman.
He increased the
pressure on her hand until she was forced to release the weapon. It clattered
to the deck floor. She whirled in his arms and struck out, managing to land a
solid hit to his chin. There was enough force behind it that it rocked his head
roared. “I don’t want to hurt you.” He wrapped his arms around her so she
couldn’t punch him again.
Her eyes glittered
with anger and fear. Her smell was light and airy, like flowers. The chest
protector she wore hid her attributes from him, but there was no denying she
was all woman.
Her thick lashes
came down, momentarily blocking his view of her eyes. She was breathing
heavily, but she stilled, like a hunted creature waiting for an opportunity to
Vaden was also
breathing heavily, and it wasn’t because he was tired. The little skirmish with
her was nothing to him. He could fight for hours on end without stopping. He
was Gravasian—fit and in his prime. And she was a woman, softer and weaker.
She glanced up at
him, and he was lost in the depths of her eyes. He leaned down before he
realized what he was doing and skimmed his lips over hers.
She sucked in a
breath. “What? What are you doing?”
I've been published for almost 15 years and this past week I went to my very first convention--RTC (Romancing the Capital in Ottawa, Ontario). I had an amazing time and met so many wonderful author friends and readers, some of whom I've been online friends with for fifteen years.
I'm an introvert and an extremely private person so this wasn't easy for me to do. But it was at the top of my bucketlist. So I pushed past my fears and did it--including panels and the book signing. I'm so glad I did. I may never do another, but this experience will live in my memory forever.
Thank you to Eve Langlais for organizing this event, and the wonderful Jess Ripley for helping to make it happen.
I'm so excited that SALVAGING ABBY, book 4 of the Marks Mercenaries series is out today!
Abby Marks has lived through the deaths of her brothers and an abduction.
Independent, she lives by her own rules. But her life takes a turn when she
decides to salvage what appears to be an abandoned Gravasian ship—only to come
face-to-face with Vaden el Gravaso, an intimidating, yet downright sexy
warrior, who seems intent on keeping her.
Engine troubles have disabled his ship. When Abby boards his vessel, she pulls
a blaster and shoots him, so how can he not want her? Vaden knows her brothers
are very much alive and searching for her, but so is her abductor. He isn’t
about to let any of them have her. As her past and present collide, both their
lives and hearts are at risk.
"This story is an excellent send off to this
sensually fascinating and uniquely magical series. ‘Strands of Love’ is filed
with an abundance of emotional turbulence and lots of stirring and scorching
hot passion. The characters are strong, captivating and easily draw readers
into their story..." ~Stormy Vixen's Book Reviews Read entire review at http://stormyvixen.booklikes.com/post/1926187/strandsoflovereview
