All Romance Bestsellers List


Shifting Weight is currently on the All Romance bestsellers list. Thrilled beyond belief doesn’t even begin to describe how amazing it was to get that email.

This is the first short story in the Shifting Paradigm series and they’ve been flying off the virtual shelves. The second book Shifting Gears was released in December and the third story Shifting Cargo is soon to be released.

In case you’ve missed part two, here is the blurb and excerpt:


Justin has graduated high school and feels the pull to find his destined mate away from the sanctuary of his Shifter family. He makes the decision to leave the sacred Pack Lands to enter the world of the Changeless humans. Only one other Shifter has ever left the sacred homelands searching for his mate and Justin is hopeful that he’ll be just as successful but the threat of violence against Shifters is ever threatening as conflict escalates.

Connor has worked hard to make a name for himself. He is an influential member of society with contacts with the business and political leaders of Whitewater. He owns and manages a successful nightclub that is soon branching off into additional prospects that will open even more red carpet opportunities for him. Everything is falling into place for him financially but he has no one with whom to share his accomplishments.

Justin makes the decision to move to the city and meets his mate when Connor hits him with his car. Connor’s initial reaction is to push Justin away because of his young age but the draw to the young Shifter is too much for Connor to resist. Justin struggles with finding his own way and fights for the chance to prove himself to Connor.

Justin is faced with making the right decisions so he doesn’t push Connor away while fighting with his own wolf to maintain control of his mind and his body. He fights with his own self-doubt in the hopes of proving to Connor that he doesn’t need the man’s success he only needs the man.


The hospital room was easy enough to find once Jason let the central desk know who he was looking for. At the end of the long white hall was a bay of rooms, set in a circular pattern around the nurses’ station and Justin’s room was on the far right. Glass doors allowed Jason to see into the room and see his cousin’s smiling face talking to a doctor in a long white lab coat. The room was filled with a half dozen vases filled with colorful flowers ranging from wild flowers to orchids and even roses. Odd considering Justin only knew Jason and Eric in the city and Justin’s family hadn’t been contacted about the accident.

Justin beamed when Jason entered the room holding his own bouquet of daisies and a get well card purchased from the downstairs gift shop. Justin lay propped upright with his left leg in a cast and elevated on a stack of pillows. An IV was hooked to his arm and a few scratches covered his forearms and left cheek but other than that he looked good. The benefits of youth had been on his side when the accident occurred.

Shifting Weight excerpt

Jason allowed himself to run that night. Elation filled him making it easier to relax and allow his wolf to flow into his mind and body. The shift was seamless, years of transitioning helped his wolf to take control in under a few painless minutes. Jason knew of wolves who could never shift because the pain was so intense. It was unknown what the cause was but some insisted that it was because the Shifter’s true mate had never been found and the man could not control the beast inside of him.

The old wives’ tale had haunted Jason especially as years passed without locating his mate. Now that he knew Eric existed, it was one less thing to worry about. Now he could focus on worrying about Eric finding out he was a Shifter. Eric’s acceptance. If the two would find love and happiness despite fate playing a factor, then, and only then, could Jason think about starting a family with Eric. Maybe he was jumping the gun, but he had always wanted a man to love and a family to care for. Was it too much to want? Shouldn’t he be satisfied with finding a mate? All of this thinking and stress was weighing him down. Yes, he had found his mate, but would Eric want Jason?

His legs pumped harder as he made his way across hills and through forests with large trees reaching up towards the skies. It was not the familiar woods of his home on the Pack Lands but it felt good to stretch his limbs, pull deep pulls of fresh air into his lungs, and feel the wind tickling through his fur all over his body. With a grin, he imagined his large bear of a mate with sexual wants that matched his own.

Freedom Hop

Romance BeckonsLive. Love. Read.


As a book lover, don’t take for granted your freedom to read. In this era of technology, books are at our fingertips and reading is something we make time for. eBook, audiobooks, and good old-fashioned paperbacks give readers of all types the opportunity to enjoy reading.

As a celebration of our freedom to choose the books that make us happy without apology, I’d like to offer a giveaway of my eBook to those who participate and comment below. A winner will be selected by and posted on Monday July 9th to allow everyone a chance, or you can pick up your own copy of Athan’s Kiss. Enjoy the blog hop and end every day with a kiss.

CHECK OUT ALL THESE GREAT AUTHORS for books you might enjoy! Enjoy the blog hop and end every day with a kiss.

Several years ago, a friend of mine walked up to my wall of books in my library and perused the titles. At the time, I had yet to enter the world of romance literature and, still, it was one of the most personal experiences I had ever had whilst completely dressed.

Once the doors of romance were open to me, I purchased a book cover. It was black, non-descript, with a red and silver dragon bookmark. It offered me privacy, I lied to myself, to read my book without anyone asking about what I was reading. This was a disservice to myself, embarrassed with my choice of literature, and my favorite authors, who weren’t allowed the opportunity to have free advertising.

My taste in literature has changed over time. Though I’m still a fan-girl of Hawthorne, Shakespeare, and Chaucer, it’s okay for me to admit my love of LA Witt, Kade Boehme, and Cardeno C as well.

The world of M/M romance is not something I need to hide: as a reader nor as an author. I am proud to have the freedom to choose books that make me happy, offer me a fantasy outside of my business-centered world, and give me the happy ever after that I work so hard for. Every tear and heartbreak within each story gives me the satisfaction that, in the end, it will all be worth the pain and struggle that each main character suffers.

I love to write in the paranormal genre. Perhaps I watched too many scary movies growing up or maybe I watch too much Buffy and Supernatural as an adult. Whatever the case, vampires have been an obsession of mine and Athan was the perfect embodiment of such a creature. In my next novel, Shifting Weight, I explored werewolves and a future world where they are trying to mainstream alongside humans. I’m contemplating a world of mummies in the future. Maybe we can bring sexy back like Arnold Vosloo did so well.

Our personal libraries say a lot about who we are. They are maps of our journey through life, a representation of who we were when a particular book opened its page and thrust us into a world of imagination, and our next book is a marker of the future and what could be. A book is never the same twice because we are not the same person once the last word is read on the last page. We’re forever changed.

Update (7/7): I hadn’t realized until now that I have the date wrong above. Since this is absolutely my error, I will continue until the 9th for comments before I select a winner. Good luck and happy reading!

International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia


Today, May 17th, is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and many of your favorite M/M authors will be celebrating by sharing awareness and words of support and love at the Hop Against Homophobia And Transphobia blogspot. This day was created to coordinate efforts to aid in the awareness of LGBT rights and events worldwide. To participate in today’s event, I’d like to share how I started my passion.

I’m a reader, a voracious reader that can sometimes devour several books in a week. My love for reading started when I was a child but it didn’t become my passion until high school when I was introduced to a book that would change my view of the world: The Scarlet Letter. It was in the pages of this novel that I learned about ostracism, the world was no longer a safe place for everyone, and it. Blew. My. Mind.

Other classics followed this one and occasionally, I read classics to ‘cleanse my pallet’, even earning a minor in Literature to learn more. I didn’t read my first romance until about ten years ago and even more doors opened for me. Prior to that book, I would poke fun of women (I didn’t know men were reading them, too!) who would read this type of literature. I didn’t understand the need for fantasization or a happy ending.

Then, my boss handed me a copy of a M/M romance novel that she had purchased on accident. She said that it was something that I would enjoy…and truer words were never spoken. I consumed that book and read it several times. Then, I read everything else ever written by the same author, followed by a never ending stream of M/M romance novels. I could never get enough. I still can’t!

During this time, I had started my own novel and was in a rut. A writer’s block that was painful because I didn’t like my main character. In an epiphany, I changed my character from a female to a male and the writing flowed like a raging river. Dialogue flowed, the plot blossomed, and I fell in love with my men. I found out later that writing is the easiest part about creating a novel.

It’s important to me that I write in this genre. I have a political family and we’re involved in LGBTQ rights and activities because we want to and not because we have to. (Okay, we have to because equal social rights is fundamental.) It tears my heart when I hear of families ripped apart because of differences and here’s why those happy endings are so special to me. There’s enough hate and anger in the world and our children, friends, families…should never be pushed away because of fear.

I’d like to offer a giveaway of my eBook to those who participate and comment below. A winner will be selected by on the 28th to allow everyone a chance or you can pick up your own copy of Athan’s Kiss. Just return back on the 28th to see if you’ve won. Enjoy the blog hop and end every day with a kiss.

Update (5/28): Ray has been randomly selected as the winner to receive my ebook Athan’s Kiss for participation in the HAHAT blog hop. Thanks to everyone for hopping for awareness and I hope to see you again. Much love!

The Hat Party Interview

The Hat Party Interview

Every interview is different. Some of them are strictly about the book, easy to answer. Some of the questions are fun and have nothing to do with the book and those are interesting since I need a moment to think about how to answer.

The Hat Party interview was by far the most creative and took me the longest to return. It was like answering an exam about myself. About me? They’re all hard questions to answer and I don’t think I’m the same person I was even a year ago. Many things influence my view on the world: politics, entertainment, and the M/M book I’ve read this week can all affect me. (Which, by the way, The Backup Boyfriend by River Jaymes had me in tears more than once and Hat Trick by Jeff Adams was better with every turn of the page.)

With each interview, I learn something new about myself. Most are good things and some make me stop and say, huh, that’s really cool, I’ve never thought of it before.
