Check the home page for two new books available for pre-order. The first in the Passions series, a short story titled Daring Passion, releases March 1st. Also releasing March 1st is the newest Naughty Literati anthology, Naughty Novellas. This includes a novella that is a re-release of one that was originally issued through Ellora’s Cave, titled Walpurgis Night.
The Passions stories are a series of loosely related Medieval historical romances that include strong BDSM and Domestic Discipline themes. The heroes are alpha and dominant but the heroines are also strong women in their own right. The first in the series is a romantic short story. The others are full-length novels.
I wanted covers that would share some of the branding from my contemporary novels, but would have their own distinct look as well, something that would suggest historical with hints of BDSM and Domestic Discipline. I think my cover designer outdid herself with these.

Just to whet your appetite, here’s one of the notes Maggie receives from her unusual Secret Santa:
On the first day of Christmas, my Master gave to me, an adventure for the holidays.
I’m thrilled that you’ve decided to go along with my proposal. I know it was a difficult decision for you. As I said before, you can stop this at any time if you’re not happy or comfortable with it.
I’m giving you safe words to use. If you say “Yellow light” at any time, it means you need a break or a breather. If you say, “Red light,” that means whatever we’re doing stops, right then and there, and we talk about it. I promise to respect your wishes if you use those words. For your safety, I’m enclosing an envelope that contains my name and plans. Please don’t open it, but put it in your desk at home. It’s your insurance that I won’t do anything to harm you.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here’s what I want you to do next.
Tonight I want you to go to the Redwood Hotel and present yourself at room 344 at precisely seven-thirty. Before you knock on the door, I want you to put on the enclosed. Put on the blindfold first, then wind the scarf around your head over the blindfold. There will be no peeking. Once you have those on, knock on the door. From then until you leave that room, you will follow all directions I give you.
If you have another commitment tonight and cannot make it, put a note in this bag and leave it on the corner of your desk this afternoon.
Otherwise I’ll see you tonight.
Your Secret Admirer
I’ve got the cover for Secret Santa Sir now and I’m thrilled with it. I’m really proud of the covers for the entire series, but this one may be the best of all. It’s perfect for the story:
The book, which is a short novel set at Christmas, is on track for a December 5th release. Pre-order links should be coming shortly.
I’ve had several people ask me recently what I’m working on and when I’ll release new material other than in the Naughty Literati anthologies or re-releases of older books. The anthologies have taken up a considerable amount of my attention this past year, and between those and organizing the re-release of the Suburban Dominants series, my non-working time has been pretty full. I’m planning for more writing time in the coming months, so look for a new story or two from me early next year.
I have two things I’m currently working on – a new series of novellas tentatively called The Disciplinarians, and a novel currently called Judith’s Challenge. It would be a sequel to my story in the Naughty Reunions anthology titled “Renovating the Relationship,” thought it might be more accurate to say that the story is a prequel to the novella. In any case, it’s about two-thirds done and I’d like to have it done by March of next year.
Stay tuned for more!

Have a small look at my newest release (well, re-release, actually!), Kyle’s Bargain. Seven sexy (short) paragraphs.
Meg said, “Wait. Take it off. Take it all off.”
He turned and grinned at her. “You want a striptease?”
The thought made her smile. “Sure.”
Devilish lights winked in his blue eyes. “I will if you will.”
“You’re on. But you go first.”
“We take turns,” he countered. “Since I’ve already got my shirt off, you have to do yours.”
“You didn’t do a striptease for the shirt so it doesn’t count.”
It’s been a long time coming, but finally things are moving again on the release front! If you’ve looked at my home page, you’ve seen that Kyle’s Bargain is finally available. It took way longer than it should have to get the editing finished and the book formatted, but it’s now done and out. The next book in the Suburban Dominants series, Cilla’s Master has been loaded and should be approved for pre-order any moment now. It releases November 20th. And the final book, Secret Santa Sir, is mostly ready, but I’m waiting for the cover. I hope to have it in time for a projected December 5th release.
The Naughty Literati have been busy too. Our wonderful anthology of supernatural romances, Naughty Haunts, released on September 1st to really nice reviews. The next anthology, Naughty Flames, a group of winter and Christmas stories, is now available for pre-order here. It’s only $.99 for now, but will be going up after it’s released, so grab your copy now.
I apologize to everyone who is waiting for it. Life has gotten in the way and slowed me down a bit, but I am working on the re-edits for Kyle’s Bargain and should have it up and available in a week or so, Good Lord willing, etc.
