Wicked Wings Release

 

Hello Beautiful Cacophonies!

The arrival of the Full Buck Moon brings the release of Wicked Wings, Book 2 in Subaru's End. This trilogy was a dream for me to write. I'd always wanted to give dark fantasy a try, to write something a little darker and more fantastical than what I've written previously. For the benefit of the readers and also for my benefit, I decided to write the entire trilogy in totality before releasing any of the books and then releasing them in tandem, one month after the other. 

Today, Wicked Wings is now available, and come August 22nd, the final book, Chthonic Crown, will also be here. I keep saying it, and I'll probably say it a hundred more times. I'm so thrilled and incredibly humbled that so many of you have given these books a try. Most of you found me from The Binding Universe, my New Orleans vampire series, and though, Subaru's End is in no way like those books, you stuck with me anyway. Thank you for that!

May this weekend bring you a little magic! 

Love, Light and Darkness

Blood Money - Lana Sky

Alright all of you dark romance readers...Lana Sky has a new book, Blood Money, and it's intense. I had the chance to advance read this book, and what can I say. It's hot, emotional, soul twisting...everything one could want from a dark romance. Because she always surprises me, I've had to stop saying this is my favorite Lana Sky book, but I will say this...Blood Money stands out. It's so good that I've already read it twice now. 





                In this twisted dark cartel romance, revenge and hate collide with the past...

Ten years after a devastating betrayal, revenge has come back to bite Ada Pavalos.

Literally.

Once her family’s trusted bodyguard, Domino Valenciaga is out for blood.

Or her heart.

Whichever goal takes more violence to achieve...

EXCERPT

“These were made with more than just plain leather...” He runs the width of his thumb across my lower back as if reading the trauma simply by feel. “Metal tails. Or a spur.”

“You sound impressed,” I rasp, hating the quiver in my voice. I’m gazing up at the bottle of wine just beyond my reach, desperate for a sip.

Lurid Lantern Release


Three long years of hard work a dark fantasy trilogy is born. It's been a long time in the making, but I'm excited to tell you that Lurid Lantern, book one in the Subaru's End trilogy, is available now. Subaru's End has been a passion piece of mine, the telling of a story I always wanted to read but couldn't find. It's different than anything I've previously written, and it comes with all manner of trigger warnings. So, it won't be for everyone, but for those of you that do give it a chance. I sure hope you love it. 



After discovering that all she fights for is a lie, a young commander joins her arch nemesis to defeat her king and save the three realms.


Cahya is a commander in the army of Refulgent. Her mission is to defend Hikari, the Light Realm and defeat the Soul Smite army of Kurai, the Dark Realm. Yet, Cahya has a secret, and her world unravels on a chance meeting with the King of Kurai where she discovers she may have helped fracture the realms.

Trigger Warnings: This trilogy is intended for an 18+ audience. It contains foul language, extreme gore, and explicit, often violent sex. If any of these bother you, this series is not for you.

New Covers for Painted Sin Duet

 Lana Sky's Painted Sin Duet now has new covers, and personally, I think they are perfect!



Book one: A Touch of Dark

When a cold, reclusive billionaire takes an interest in a tormented young heiress, she finds herself drawn to his intrigue. 

Could the tension building between them be entirely due to lust or the trappings of a greater scheme?

One driven solely by revenge?

Book two: Tastes like Sin

Is he a heartless monster?

The more Juliana is subjected to his charms, the deeper she falls under Damien’s spell. But the promise of protection and security may come at a higher price than she’s willing to pay.

Or, a reluctant player?

The reclusive billionaire has his own secrets, and his relationship with Juliana may threaten to send his precarious house of cards crashing down.

Will their bond survive the chaos?

Or, will they both be destroyed in the end?

Stewards of the Sea - Out Now!

 



So, surprise, surprise! I've written a new book. As some of you might now, I am currently working on the last book in a dark fantasy trilogy, and I plan to release all three books back-to-back very soon. The series has been a kind of passion project for me over the last year and a half, and it's been rather daunting. Like many of you, this past year, or has it been years, has been trying to say the least, and at some point, I realized that I missed the beach something fierce. 

So, I did something about it. I wrote a surprise book! Like most people, I couldn't really travel, but I could write a Contemporary Beach Romance and create a fun Spotify playlist to go along with the novel. (Listen to Playlist Here)

All proceeds for this book, whether you buy a paperback or a kindle copy, will be donated to the Share the Beach Turtle Conservation program in Gulf Shores, Alabama.



In other news: the audio for Awaken is now up on Audible. The narrator, Matthew R. Lents, is extremely talented. Indeed, I'm lucky to have him narrating several of my books. You all will enjoy listening to him, as well. As it stands, I still have a few US and UK promo codes. If you'd like one, please message me.

Alright, lovelies, that's all today. Happy reading and Vermillion Cacophonies!

Gates of Guinee Cover Reveal and Release Date

Book 4 in the Casquette Girls series is coming, and we finally get a sneak peak at the cover!




As the Ghost Drinkers seep into the crevices of the Crescent City, leeching the French Quarter of magic, the local witches are consumed with a new fight for survival. Adele has one chance to save everyone she loves, but it will mean breaking away from her coven and trusting a vampire.


For the first time in four hundred years, Niccolò Medici feels on the precipice of finding his stolen grimoire. But in order to restore his family’s legacy, he’ll have to succumb to his darkest desires.


New York transplant and first responder Isaac Thompson will stop at nothing to protect Adele, even if he has to give in to his Spektral magic to unearth the truth about Nicco’s monstrous past. 


For those who choose to pass through the Gates of GuinĂ©e, the rules of the Afterworld are simple: Don’t eat the food. Tell no lies.


In a whirl of lucid dreams, fetish markets, and ancestral reunions, only those who bare their souls will survive this ghostly hunt, or else they’ll join the land of the dead permanently.


Teetering on the razor’s edge between everything she desires and utter madness, only her heart and her magic can lead Adele back home... if only Callisto Salazar hadn’t stolen her Fire, and the most secretive one of them all hadn’t stolen her heart.

The Other Tide - Carly Spade

Before we head into autumn, I think we all need one more summer worthy romance to enjoy with a cocktail beneath the last rays of warm sunshine, and I have the perfect book--Carly Spade's novel The Other Tide.

You guys know the drill. This is the part where I gush about how much I love a book, where I tell you whether it's fast-paced, funny, sexy, or just fun, and yes, The Other Tide is ALL of those things. 

But that's not why I wanted to blog about this book. 

Like many of you, the ocean is my happy place. I am never happier than when I'm near the water. Those of you that know me personally are probably tired of my endless gifts of reusable straws, refillable water bottles, and woven shopping bags that go along with my insistence that we as people must do better by our oceans and by our earth. On top of all the pollution and waste, we are depleting our oceans of their diverse lifeforms--including sharks.

Which brings me back to Carly Spade's wonderful book. Don't worry. This is NOT a book about environmental issues. It's a slow burn, enemies to lovers romance that occurs on an adventurous expedition to tag and film various species of shark. The hero is based on Paul de Gelder, and the heroine is smart, funny, and non-simpering. 

If you guys don't know Paul de Gelder, you aren't nerdy enough. Go watch Shark Week! Now. :)

And best of all, the biggest reason I wanted to share this awesome book with you is that ALL proceeds go to Blue Ring Inc.,which supports the funding of globally significant exploration and conservation projects.

Okay guys, now this is part where I finally say it. I love this book. It's the best book I've read all summer, and I know you guys are going to enjoy it too.

Dr. Samantha ‘Sam’ Smith and Luke Jansen have gotten under each other’s skins since they met 10 years ago on the Royal Australian Naval base. They never thought they’d see each other again until their love of sharks brought them back together, giving their competitive and stubborn natures another chance to clash.

Sam, marine biologist and shark specialist, recently landed her dream job with the aquatic research department at Miami University. When her mentor invites her on the expedition of a lifetime, she eagerly takes the bait. The goal: obtain coveted, groundbreaking footage of Great White sharks breeding.

Unbeknownst to Sam, her mentor has invited one of the best shark experts in the business as well — a certain Aussie diver too arrogant and sexy for his own good. Luke, different after a life-changing diving accident, is the last person she expected to see.

Sam and Luke’s competitive streak picks up right where it left off as Sam realizes Luke knows almost as much about sharks as she does, despite her eight years of education. When a deep sea dive goes awry, Sam has to rely on Luke’s experience, both with sharks and as a Navy Clearance Diver, to get her back on board alive and in one piece. To make matters worse, a reckless rival crew surfaces, determined to beat them to the punch. Amidst the adventure and exhilaration of the hunt, Sam and Luke ignite a passionate spark that they slowly realize may have been simmering all along. If they can make it through with the footage and their lives, they may just have a shot at Happily Ever After.

*The character of Luke Jansen inspired by Paul de Gelder (Discovery’s Shark Week) and his amazing story of survival and overcoming life’s obstacles.
