Wolf on the Run now in PRINT

WOLF ON THE RUN is available today in PRINT.


She’s run right into the arms of the big bad wolf.

Salvation Pack, Book 3

Considered an abomination for her inability to shift, Cherise Michaels has been on the run from her pack since she was a teenager. After her mother is murdered by her former packmates, Cherise is alone, grieving and out of options. Until a dream puts her on course toward her last hope—Salvation, North Carolina.

She makes it to Salvation only to be cornered by her pursuers and then rescued by the biggest, baddest werewolf she’s ever seen.

Cole Blanchard has no trouble dispatching the intruders trespassing on pack land. Convincing their skittish quarry she’s safe is another story. Cole senses she is his mate and he’ll protect her to his last breath, even it means risking everything to face her former pack.

In Cole’s arms, Cherise learns there’s something in this world more powerful than fear—desire and love. She knows loving her is a death sentence for Cole, so she plans to store up a lifetime of memories before she lets him go…

Warning: This pulse-pounding, heart-thumping story may cause shortness of breath. You are not having a heart attack. You are falling in love with a hot werewolf who will do whatever it takes to keep his chosen mate safe.

Weekend Book Club--Darkness Torn Asunder by Alexis Morgan

It's been four years since the last Paladin novel by Alexis Morgan, but DARKNESS TORN ASUNDER was released on August 17th. For those of us who are fans of this highly original paranormal series, it was a welcome sight.

Continuing the sexy, paranormal Paladins series where Darkness on Fire left off, this original e-novella features larger-than-life warriors in a secret army that battles evil in the modern world.

Fifteen years after Emmett Stone was unjustly imprisoned for a brutal attack, the true aggressor came forward to tell the truth about that fatal night. Shortly before Emmett’s release from prison, he’s visited by two men who understand his strange ability to rapidly heal from anything, and why he’s driven to protect those around him. And they have a very unusual job offer for him…

When Emmett cuts his hand at work, his boss insists he go to get stitched up. To keep up the charade of normalcy, Emmett goes to the free clinic, where he meets Jana. Instantly drawn to her quiet beauty and caring nature, he vows to protect her at all costs. But will his fierce protectiveness and hidden secrets cause Jana to run?

Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (Warrior's Woman by Johanna Lindsey)

WARRIOR'S WOMAN by Johanna Lindsey is my pick for Throwback Thursday this week. This is a classic sci fi/fantasy romance. I love the the byplay between the hero and heroine. They are from very different cultures, which makes their relationship interesting and intense. Tedra is one kickass heroine, but Challen is her match.


In the year 2139, fearless Tedra De Arr sets out to rescue her beleaguered planet Kystran from the savage rule of the evil Crad Ce Moerr. Experienced in combat but not in love, the beautiful, untouched Amazon flies with Martha, her wise-cracking, free-thinking computer, to a world where warriors reigns supreme--and into the arms of the one man she can never hope to vanquish: the bronzed barbarian Challen Ly-San-Ter. A magnificent creature of raw yet disciplined desires, the muscle-bound primitive succeeds where no puny Kystran male had before--igniting a raging fire within Tedra that must be extinguished before she can even think of saving her enslaved world. . .

Weekend Book Club--Bound to Darkness by Lara Adrian.

I've been reading Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series from the very first book, and this series just keeps getting better. This week I read BOUND TO DARKNESS, the latest installment in the series. Dark and passionate with lots of action and conspiracy. Everything readers have come to love and want in a Midnight Breed book. 


Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way—no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.

Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He’s made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him…until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys’s trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.

Throwback Thursday--Book Edition (The Darkest Hour by Maya Banks)

This week I'm featuring THE DARKEST HOUR, book one in the Kelly Group International (KGI) series, by Maya Banks. 

I can't begin to tell you how much I love this series. This is romantic suspense at it's very best! This is a heartbreaking story of loss, love and redemption. Banks writes strong but vulnerable heroines. Her men are as tough as they come, but they too are all too human when it comes to their relationships. Emotional, sexy and action-packed.

If you haven't read the KGI series, try The Darkest Hour. If you enjoy it, you can keep on reading. Book 10--Darkest Before Dawn is due out on October 27th and I can't wait!


It’s been one year since ex-Navy SEAL Ethan Kelly last saw his wife Rachel alive. Overwhelmed by grief and guilt over his failures as a husband, Ethan shuts himself off from everything and everyone.

His brothers have tried to bring Ethan into the KGI fold, tried to break through the barriers he’s built around himself, but Ethan refuses to respond… until he receives anonymous information claiming Rachel is alive.

To save her, Ethan will have to dodge bullets, cross a jungle, and risk falling captive to a deadly drug cartel that threatens his own demise. And even if he succeeds, he’ll have to force Rachel to recover memories she can’t and doesn’t want to relive—the minute by minute terror of her darkest hour—for their love, and their lives, may depend on it.
