Melted and Whipped (for the holidays)!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Even to those of you who don’t celebrate it. I’m thankful for all of you, for your kind words of encouragement, and your indulgence when I get a little too excited about glistening muscular chests. (Ahh…)

What happens when a ski instructor gets a second chance with the sexy guy who broke her heart in college? She gets Melted and Whipped!

My special BDSM holiday book published by All Romance Ebooks is now available. ARE has been a fantastic group to work with, and I’m very excited about this story. It’s a standalone novella with a happy ending, similar in style to the Take Me Hard titles (except longer–28,000 words).

So make yourself a hot cocoa with extra whipped cream, and happy reading!

She’ll need more than a safe word to survive Porter Loughton.

Too broke to fly home for the holidays, ski instructor Emily is stuck on the slopes, giving lessons to the rich and the privileged. She doesn’t expect to see Porter Loughton, a former friend who broke her heart in college, ten years later and half a continent away. The mesmerizing billionaire suggests dinner, and Emily soon discovers how it feels to be bent across his knee, to be dominated by him. Their chemistry is hotter than in her dirtiest fantasies.

Emily knows it would be foolish to let him get too close after what happened before. She’s broke, her career nonexistent. The last thing she needs is to be in love with a man who doesn’t feel the same way. But when she receives distressing news, Porter is there to soothe her, and he won’t leave her side. Soon she has no control over her feelings.

Double Trouble: Two new releases!

Because someone whose name rhymes with Cleo can’t read a calendar, I’ve got two releases this week. One is the multi-author anthology! Eight books by some very talented writers for only 99ç. Yours truly contributed a NEW “By a Dangerous Man” story. If you’ve read both seasons, you’ll catch a few inside jokes, but I avoided references to certain recent events so as to avoid spoilers.

The second release is a standalone menage (4 guys, 1 gal) novel. No cliffhangers.

Next up is… Well, I think these will keep ya busy for a few weeks. 🙂 But it’ll either be a standalone novel or the start to an office menage trilogy.

LURING THE PACK is a steamy menage novel of 67,500 words. Contains BDSM elements of dominance and submission.

Luring the pack is barbaric and dangerous, but it’s Emmalina’s only hope.Luring the Pack

Twenty-one-year-old Emmalina knows all about trouble even before her addict sister signs their house over to the local wolf pack.

Desperate, Emmalina tarts herself up and ventures into wolf territory.

Her plan is simple: offer to lure the pack. Playing bait for a bunch of hot shifters is better than being homeless.

The wolves are even more brutal—and more refined—than rumored. Especially the cruel, dark-eyed alpha who looks into Emmalina’s soul and reads all her secret hopes. Armand is the most powerful alpha the pack has ever had, and it’s not in his nature to let her off easy.

But Emmalina’s hot, mysterious neighbors don’t approve of what she’s doing, and for good reason. What they’re hiding could save Emmalina’s life… or get her killed.

This book includes: Four hunky heroes, one heroine, dark forests and darker secrets.

I’ll release my story separately at that time, and the intro price will only be available at stores where the anthology isn’t offered. From the bottom of my heart, I do apologize to everyone who has to wait.

Halloween Surprises: Sculpted Treats

So I’m doing the final edits on what I’ve been calling, misleadingly, The Halloween Surprise. Misleading because the novel has nothing to do with Halloween–that was more about the timing of the release and because it’s supernatural. Ooooh. Anyway, it’s just a few days away from being ready, and I figured I’d share the cover.

Luring the Pack

But wait! What’s this second cover? That’s the novella I wrote for ARE’s Bound to be Naughty series. Like the other books in this post, it’s also a standalone. Actually, it’s a lot like the Take Me Hard books: innocent, broke heroine falls under the spell of a kinky, dominant billionaire. Except this one is longer. I’m not sure when in December it will be released, but here’s a link with the blurb.

Melted and Whipped

But wait! A third cover? Cleo, stop! We can’t take it anymore! Here’s the thing… You didn’t use your safe word, so now you have to stare at more manly chest. *Muahahahha* Tell me, can you not hear the ripping of his T-shirt? Excellent work, faceless male model. Excellent work. (Release date: in a couple of weeks. Title of my selection: “Completely fucked up and turned around and worked over by a Dangerous Man.” Or something like that.)

Possess: An Alpha Anthology

And on that note, I wish you all a joyous weekend full of sculpted, brawny treats.

Protected by a Dangerous Man (By a Dangerous Man #10) Available!!!

Hello, all! I’m taking a deep breath to say… The conclusion to Season Two is finally available!!! It feels like a couple of centuries but has only been a couple of months. This book is long… like two books sewn together. Extra Corbin and Audrey! Same intro price as always.

I’m currently having Internet problems again (which is why I’m writing this several days after the book was published), but as soon as possible, I’ll catch up with my blog comments. Next book to be published? A Halloween surprise! I can do some standalones before I start publishing the new series. 🙂

Happy reading!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

PROTECTED BY A DANGEROUS MAN (#10) is a steamy romantic suspense of 67,000 words. This is the fifth and final book in Season Two. There are no cliffhangers! **This novel is over twice the length of the first book.**

He’s the man she’s been waiting for, but can she trust him?

Bounty hunter Audrey is close to solving her first big private investigation case, no thanks to her lying clients. But their omissions pale in comparison to what mysterious billionaire Corbin Lagos has been guarding under lock and key in his office.

Audrey doesn’t have time to confront Corbin, not when he’s determined to eliminate Henry Heigh once and for all. Keeping Corbin’s protective instincts in check is a game she can’t win, and the extremes he’ll go to will change their lives forever.

Desired by a Dangerous Man (By a Dangerous Man #9) Available!!!

Hellllloooo everyone! Remember Audrey and Corbin? I’ll confess that I’ve stared at this cover for too long. I think that guy could do a lot of pushups. Yum, yum, yum.

Note to readers at B&N: The book’s page disappeared at some point in the last seven hours. Yikes! Hopefully they’ll have it up again soon.  It’s working again.

Next up will be By a Dangerous Man #10 (the last one in season 2), which I am writing as quickly as I can. I’m still waiting on the cover for the standalone novel, so I’ll just wait a bit longer to talk about it. 🙂

Happy reading!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

DESIRED BY A DANGEROUS MAN (#9) is 41,000 words.

Corbin Lagos is everything Audrey ever wanted, but the billionaire ex-assassin who stole her heart is hiding something. Something big.

And he’s becoming more secretive by the day.

She doesn’t have time to tend to her relationship, not when the family bounty hunting business is failing and the clock is ticking on the most important investigation of her career.

This time she can’t do it alone. Corbin is the only one who can help, but his methods lead to changes she’s not prepared for.

More naughty fun from Romeo, Slade, Hawthorne, and Lindsay. It’s the last book, but I’ll be doing a spinoff trilogy with Layla (the sister) in the future.

Next up: By a Dangerous Man. I can’t give a date… a few health problems have slowed me down the last few weeks (I’m fine, don’t worry!) but I’ll finish it and get it up as quickly as I can. There are other projects underway, but I’m going to wait until I’m back to 100% to make the announcements. I also look forward to catching up on blog/Twitter in the next few days.

Hugs and thanks for your patience!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

FORBIDDEN FIX (#6) is a steamy romantic suspense of 38,000 words. It’s the final story in the series and is over twice the length of the first story! Contains sexy billionaire bosses and menage romance.

She loves her bosses and her new life with them, but she won’t abandon her sister again.

Romeo, Slade, and Hawthorne are powerful men, and they convince her to trust them just a little longer. They won’t let anything happen to her.

Then, everything shatters again.
