New release goodness

I have a new book coming out in ten days! Yay!

Yep, it's REDEMPTION, Seven Signs book #2.

(In the meantime, you can get book #1 (REVELATION) from Amazon at 40% off! Cool!)

So. Behold this fantastic evilsexy cover. Isn't it crazy? I adore those wings...

Japheth the Tainted is on the hunt for a mysterious demon vampire. But meeting her face-to-face might disarm his warrior spirit—and spark an unquenchable passion with apocalyptic consequences.

As a fallen angel, Japheth is determined to make his way back to heaven by staying pure and slaying hellspawn. With a new scourge of vampires unleashed by a blood-drinking demon, the Prince of Thirst, there’s plenty to be done. But Japheth is after one vampire in particular—the one they call the Angel Slayer.

Rose Harley never wanted to be a vampire, but the Prince of Thirst can turn even the kindest soul into a soldier of hell. Feeling abandoned by God, she stalks the West Village taking revenge on his angels—until she meets her match.

When Japheth and Rose encounter each other, the battle is fierce and charged with desire. But when they discover a common enemy—the Prince of Thirst himself—they form a dangerous alliance that could either cost them their eternal lives, or spark a love more powerful than heaven or hell.

Is this awesome or what? I have no words for much I love this book. And Japheth. I had an excellent time with him.

You can check out the first couple of chapters for free at my website. You can add it to your shelf on Goodreads.

And to celebrate, I'm running a Goodreads giveaway. Of course you want one, right? So go check it out!

The SFR Brigade Presents...

The Science Fiction Romance Brigade presents... 

...a collection of cool SFR snippets! Check out some favourite or new-to-you authors!

Here's mine, from my sci-fi adventure DRAGONFLY. Carrie is a secret agent, and she's finally insinuated herself onto the spaceship of the criminal she's hunting. But it isn't working out quite like she'd planned...

He hopped down the steps and planted himself on the worktable before me, shoving aside a half-built gammaspace commlink and a bunch of colored wire. “Welcome to Ladrona,” he said, but he didn’t sound pleased to have me here. “Now give me my chip.”

Ladrona. Lady thief. It figured.

I crossed one leg over the other—here, have another eyeful—and folded my arms. “I don’t think so.”

Challenge glinted in his eyes. “I could search you for it.”

I couldn’t help glancing at his fingers. Remnants of desire lingered in my hot skin and skipping pulse, and my guts tightened. I flashed him a glare, daring him. “Not without that pistol.”

He watched me, dark because he knew I was right. “So what, will you just sit there?”

“Only for as long as it takes. I want in.”

He laughed, pleasant and melodic. It made me remember kissing him, the way he’d tasted, how he’d made me ache for him.

Anger boiled, and I glared at him. I should never have let him get away with that. “What’s so funny?”

SeƱorita, you have no idea what you’re asking.”

Fools for Luv blog hop and giveaway
Welcome to the Fools for Luv Valentine's giveaway hop!

Hosted by Steph at Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

and Dana at Readaholics Anonymous.

Valentine's Day. 

A day to celebrate romance! As if we needed an excuse for that, right?

Some people don't like Valentine's Day. They think it's just an unsubtle, over-commercialised grab for our cash, an invented imperative for us to spend money on stuff that doesn't mean anything. If we don't buy flowers and cards and chocolates and fancy dinners out, we're bad boyfriends or girlfriends or spouses.

And... yeah. Maybe there's a bit of that in it.

But you know what? Bring it on. Because Valentine's Day is made for people who don't know how to say 'I love you'.

It's for the shy kid, who on any other day of the year is too mortified to give that sexy, popular, out-of-their-league girl or guy flowers. Valentine's Day gives them courage.

It's for the one who's too embarrassed or bruised or broken inside to make a fuss of their special person. Valentine's Day gives them strength.

Or it's for the unassuming spouse who's just there, day after day, looking after their family, and lacks a bit of romance in their life. It gives him or her an excuse to say, hey, let's go somewhere special just for us.

So sure, it's commercialised and twee. But if Valentine's Day is the excuse you need? Grab it with both hands. Because sometimes, we all need a little help.

Now for the giveaway!  
Open worldwide, all ages, so long as your email address can receive the prize.
