We've Moved!

Hi! This blog has moved to a new location on a brand new website! Check us out over there!

Take Another Step Back

I really shouldn't have been surprised. I mean, honestly, like we'd gain respect with just one interview? Instead of what could have been an incredible way to show off what we do, we were told over and over again we write "Mommy Porn."

Really?

Sorry, I'm not a "mommy" in their terms. Meaning I don't think my place is in the kitchen or by my husband's side, only doing what he says and being happy that he lets me have a voice every once in a while. I don't think that because I'm a woman I should surprise people that I have a brain. Sorry, people, I'm smarter than that. I have degrees, years in colleges, papers in my name in the scientific and mathematics communities. I've earned awards and grants for my research and my teaching. I've been voted favorite teacher and loved teaching chemistry.

That's right, boys, I taught SCIENCE.

I'm not your "mommy." Stop putting me in a corner. Stop trying to shove women in a box because *gasp* they do things on their own and have their own ideas.

I for sure don't write porn.

Porn is for the use of titillation as author Lauren Dane said HERE. I work hours a day coming up with plot, character development, and romance. I don't spend my day worrying only about sex scenes.
But guess what, just because I'm a woman doesn't mean I can't write about sex.

Sex.

Yes. I said the word. Get over it. Stop putting me in your little box where the "little woman" doesn't know best.

Erotic Romance isn't "Mommy Porn". It's a story that hinges on something far greater than just what positions the characters are in when they're in the bedroom.

Honestly, CBS, you ruined a great opportunity and used a wonderful author to get there. After saying the word PORN over and over again, even blurring out images, and showing that her children don't really respect it, you let that author say one sentence about what romance authors really do.

One sentence that while it was true, did nothing to stop you from calling it "Mommy Porn" for headlines.

The community the media is ignoring is a vast one that is filled with brilliant women--and men--who are being belittled because they don't conform to your attitudes.

This is nothing new but stop patronizing us that you "finally see" us. You're saying we have no value other than doing something on the side of being a "mommy". Sorry, we're better than that.

Question Sunday: You Ask Me

Howdy! This is the first Sunday I'm doing this and I hope to do it more in the future! Ask my anything you'd like in the comments and I'll come and update the post throughout the day with the answers! So ask away!

Q from Hannah: Are you doing more books past Jackson's in Holiday, Montana?

A: While I'd love to, I'm not sure I will. I'm pretty settled after Dreams of Ivory in July. The Coopers will have their happy endings and I have many other series for you! I will say NEVER SAY NEVER though because I could totally write novellas that visit those sexy Coopers and maybe even find a new holiday. For now, though, I'm moving on to more Dante's Circle and more Redwood Pack. 

Q: from Dee Little: Which authors of the erotic genre do you like to read?

A: I read many, many authors in most genres. In the erotic one, the ones that come to mind are Lorelei James, Maya Banks, Lauren Dane, and a few others.

Q: from Alex: What about the novella length do you enjoy most?

A: I read and write in novella and full length categories  but I like writing and reading some novellas when I just want to show of a short glimpse into my character's lives.

Q: Do you think you might write an after story about the Redwood Packs children when they are in their 20's? I'd like to see how they fair, especially Finn.

A: That sounds like it would be interesting.

“What’s going on, Abigail?”“Why do you call me that? Everyone else calls me, Abby.” She bit her lip, and his eyes focused on them for a second.They looked sexy…He blinked, a gray haze coming over his mind.Wait. What had he been thinking about?“Ty? Why do you call be Abigail?”“It’s your name, isn’t it?” And he liked the sound of it on his tongue. That gray haze came back, and he rubbed his temples. What the hell?She shook her head. “Whatever. I’m here to say goodbye actually.”“Goodbye?”“I’m moving, and I thought I’d say goodbye to all the Coopers.” She blinked and looked around as though trying to come up with what to say.“Moving? Why would you do that?”“There’s nothing for me here.”But, what about…He closed his eyes as a headache slammed into him. “What’s wrong, Ty?” Abigail walked toward him, and he took a step back. Hurt crossed her face for a moment, her eyes widening as she bit her lip, but then she managed to mask it.“I’m fine. Just a headache. Uh, I’m sorry to see you go.”Hurt flashed again, and this time, it looked even more painful. Her eyes took on a glassy glaze, almost as if she was about to cry, but she held it back.“I see.” She looked away from his face, and he frowned.

Lucky In Love Blog Hop


I love luck, love and all that comes with it. I even wrote a whole series about holidays, and one of them centers around Brayden, the lucky in everything but love Cooper brother. I'm 50% Irish, so I love wearing green the day of and playing around. Yes, I know the history behind the holiday, as well as the ideals that come with it, but sometimes, it's just fun to enjoy yourself. On the day of we wear green, drink beer, and eat corned beef and cabbage--the usuals.


What do you do for St. Patrick's day? What are your traditions?




Her Lucky Love - Holiday, Montana book 4 

Brayden Cooper has always been lucky. It’s in his blood and in the coin that he has hanging on a leather tie around his neck. He has everything in the world he could ever want: money, a job, brothers he loves, and the luck that comes with his powers. Yet he’s empty. Everyone but him knows he loves Allison, yet it’s going to take something stronger than luck to bring them together.

Allison Malone is exhausted. After the death of her abusive husband, her hell of a marriage is finally over and now she’s alone with her three children that are the center of her world. Long hours at work, plus mommy duty at home are taking its toll on her and that’s not the worst of it. Her late husband’s family is in town and they want her children.

The outsiders have secrets of their own and it’s going to take all of the Coopers, especially Brayden’s, help to save them. When trouble attacks, Allison will have to remember that she’s also a woman who needs love, and Brayden might be the one to give that to her.

Guest Author: Shiloh Walker aka JC Daniels with Night Blade


Kit Colbana is always biting off more than she can chew. She has a knack for finding trouble. This time, though, trouble finds her. Someone from her past drops a case into her lap that she just can’t refuse…literally.
People on the Council are dying left and right and she’s been requested to investigate the deaths. The number one suspect? Her lover, Damon. If she doesn’t clear his name, he gets a death sentence. Even if she succeeds? They still might try to execute him. Oh, and she’s not allowed to tell him about the case, either.
The stakes are high this time around, higher than they’ve ever been. Kit may be forced to pay the ultimate price to save her lover’s life…a price that could destroy her and everything she loves.

Excerpt (used with permission from Shiloh ©ShilohWalker)
“Dunno where you are or when you’ll get this message, but I’m looking for you and I need to talk to you.  I have a job for you and you kind of have to take it.”
I made a face.  Justin was a Banner cop now.   They’d seduced him with the promises of You get to kill things and we’ll give you lots of weapons.  He liked weapons almost as much as I did.  And he liked killing things…well, when they needed killing.  Justin was like a loaded gun, a good weapon and he was most efficient when he had a target.
“Call me, set up a time, Kitty-kitty. Don’t make me track you down, okay?  You really do have to take this job…trust me.”
I sighed and rubbed the back of my neck.
Trust him.  That was a problem.  I did trust Justin.  There weren’t a lot of people I was willing to say that about but he was definitely one of them.
The message ended and I sat there, staring at nothing.
I trusted him, but I sure as hell didn’t want to take any job that he might have to offer.
Jobs and Justin meant one thing.  A connection to the Banner unit.  The Banner units were exterminators.  Non-human exterminators.   Banner cops, slang for the Bureau of American Non-Human Affairs–were basically men and women like Justin, highly skilled, very deadly human who went out and eliminated the NHs who had been deemed too deadly to live.  Generally, they didn’t get to play much because us non-humans patrolled our own.  That was the job the packs, the clans, the order of witches and the Assembly in general.  But sometimes there were those who slipped past the ever-watchful eyes of the Assembly.
Sometimes there were those the Assembly turned a blind eye to and the Banner cops stepped up to the plate.
If Justin was calling me, it was entirely likely that he wanted my help in tracking somebody down.
Damn it all to hell.

A little about JC:
J.C. Daniels is the alter ego of author Shiloh Walker and was created basically because Shiloh writes like a hyperactive bunny and an intervention was necessary.  J.C. is the intervention.  The name… J.C. Daniels is a play off of the three people who pretty much run Shiloh’s life.
J.C./Shiloh Walker has been writing since she was a kid. She fell in love with vampires with the book Bunnicula and has worked her way up to the more…ah…serious works of fiction. She loves reading and writing just about every kind of romance. Once upon a time she worked as a nurse, but now she writes full time and lives with her family in the Midwest.  She writes urban fantasy, romantic suspense and paranormal romance, among other things.

Her Lucky Love: An Excerpt





He got up and left some cash on the table, leaving his brothers staring at him with looks of astonishment on their faces.
Well, they’d asked after all.
They’d just have to deal with the consequences.
He got in his truck and made it back to his place, a sprawling hillside home with six bedrooms, waiting for a family.
One he was pretty sure he’d never have.
An image of Lacy, Aiden, and Cameron playing in the halls, their laughter echoing like some long-forgotten dream passed over his mind, and Brayden closed his eyes, trying to block out the picture that would never come to pass.
He could only imagine putting the kids to bed then slowing stripping down Allison to nothing but skin, tasting each inch and loving her like no man ever would.

Her Lucky Love: An Excerpt




He loved her too much to be with her and take away her independence.
Brayden wasn’t lucky enough to be with someone like her.
He snorted at that last thought.
Well, he was damn lucky at everything else he did. It was just too freaking ironic that he couldn’t be lucky at the one thing he most desperately needed. But, that was the life he’d chosen for himself, and he’d have to learn to live with it. No, he hadn’t chosen who he fell in love with—that was Ally’s doing. But, he had chosen to let her be the best mom she could and stand aside throughout the years. He’d chosen to watch her with another man and watch those kids grow up without him other than just a friend.

Saturday Snippet: HER LUCKY LOVE


This isn't really a backlist, but it's my new release, so yay!


Brayden Cooper got out of his truck and stretched, his back aching like a man older than his years. Though, in reality, he wasn’t as young as he used to be.He’d dropped off Ally and her kids at their apartment then took the car to the shop. When he’d left the Malones’, the kids had protested. Lacy, though cute as a freaking button, had pouted, her eyes filling with tears.He hated leaving them, but he had a job to do. And, frankly, he couldn’t stand watching Allison move away from him every time he got a bit closer. It pained him like a swift blade piercing his heart every time her smile gave him an inch or hint of invitation just before she stepped back as soon as she’d realized what she’d done.

Risk Vs. Reward: A Character Study 

There are several  “Heroes” in the Turkish Delights series. But at its core is a set of identical twin men, Tarkan an Emre Deniz, sons of the blended American/Turkish couple, Vivian and Levent.

As with many cultures, a Turkish person’s name has meaning, and I found that the Turks take this particularly seriously (or they used to—as with many things, younger generations are getting away from it).  However, I chose the names “Tarkan” And “Emre” carefully as they are reflections of how the two men who look “scary alike” according to most who meet them, are so vastly different in temperament and personality.

First, “Emre” as his is the lot of “older brother,” even if only by a few moments. Many translate this to mean exactly that: “Older brother,” and some say it means “friend,” and one translation is “Passionately in love.” 

Emre is the twin who seemed to take the predictable, responsible path. He is accused at times of being “old in a young man’s body,” “overprotective,” and even “a young fuddy duddy.” But he is the twin you want in a crises: cool-headed, organized, and methodical.  But the “passionately in love” works too because when he meets Elle Kensington, an Ex-pat, high level executive woman who is 15 years his senior…well, his cool-headedness goes right out the window.


Tarkan is the younger boy (by a few) and his name means “Strong,” or “bold.”  This is the son who is gay and comes out to his family when he meets the love of his life in Caleb Blessing, an American man who is the personal assistant to Elle Kensington.  But he makes a decision a few years into his relationship with Caleb that changes everyone’s lives forever.

In Turkey it a legal requirement that men over the age of 18 must serve in the military for 2 years. There are ways around and out of this and Levent Deniz spends a fair bit of money keeping his boys in college overseas in hopes of avoiding it.  But when they return, Tarkan (the strong and bold) feels compelled to honor his responsibility for the Deniz family.

The tradition with the Turkish military (which by the way is one of the strongest standing militaries in the world) is to take young men who have grown up in the various large cities and station them in the far flung outposts (of which there are a LOT including some very dangerous ones today, along the border with Syria). And they will take the “country boys” and put them smack dab in the city, guarding various military bases (there are a lot of these), and government buildings in the capital Ankara.  Tarkan was headed straight for the border with Iraq (as a city boy from the get go) until his father intervenes with some money and he ends up in the relative safety of Ankara, guarding the Turkish Parliament building.  This turns out not to be a safe place at all, unfortunately.  But Tarkan is the risk taking twin and always was. His close relationship with their younger sister, Lale (pronounced “Lah-Ley” and which means “beautiful tulip”) is also testament to his bravery as she is a Wild Child with a Capital “W”.  As a matter of fact, Lale and Emre hardly get along at all as he barely tolerates her from the moment she is born when the boys are 6 but Tarkan is smitten with his kız kardeşim (kuhz Kar-de-shim) “baby sister” the minute he lays eyes on her.

The family dynamic is a huge part of the Turkish Delights series, which weaves somewhat magical stories as part of the Decadent Publishing “1Night Stand” series in with tales of fated love, intrigue, suspense, and heat. 

It is now available in an e-book bundle AND in print under one lovely cover.  I hope you get a chance to read them soon!


OH… and speaking of TARKAN…..here is a very famous one: The internationally acclaimed pop star (I saw him live in Istanbul…yumster)….the songs are from his English album…enjoy the eye candy. You are welcome.







A young American woman comes face to face with her destiny in Istanbul in the 1960's and an epic dynasty is born.  

When Vivian Kinkaid turns around in her college classroom and makes eye contact with a man who was once her forbidden childhood friend, her life is changed forever.

A sweeping saga of family, love, loss and recovery—The Turkish Delight series begins with a special sort of magic. Then  Madame Eve works her miracles for the Deniz family, but even she can’t overcome the harsh realities that force this Turkish/American family all to deal with tragedy when one of their own is ripped from their close-knit circle.

 “The Turks” opens with best-selling classic romance for the ages.  Then ends with a thrilling novella that brings all the players back together.  Set in Istanbul, Las Vegas, and Southern California, The Turkish Delights series has it all—heat, heart, intrigue and a deep, family connection that transcends all barriers.

An Excerpt from HER LUCKY LOVE



He shook his head then ran kisses down her brow, her cheek, her jaw. “No, it’s not enough. But I don’t believe you. I don’t think you’re going to go. I might be the stupidest man you’ve ever seen by going with my gut and my luck rather than your words, but I’m taking you, Ally.”
His voice, low and ready, mixed with the softness of his lips on her skin made her thighs clench, aching for him. She was no stranger to sex. No, she’d had three kids and let—no, had endured—Greg keep her down for years, but she knew it would be different with Brayden.
She needed it to be different with Brayden.
“I’m going to try my best.” She just hoped it was good enough.
He stared at her for a few moments as if searching for an answer that she hadn’t given. She lifted her chin from his hold but didn’t look anywhere but his face, his high cheekbones and his strong jaw.
Finally, he nodded then lowered his lips. He tasted of mint, coffee, and that thing that was just Brayden. She melted into him, deepening his kiss. God, she needed him. Needed this.
He nipped at her lips, her tongue, tasting her while she did the same to him. Finally, he pulled back, his pupils wide, just a little bit of blue around the edges. Both of them panted heavily, knowing this was the start of something more…something they would finish tonight.

Brayden Cooper has always been lucky. It’s in his blood and in the coin that he has hanging on a leather tie around his neck. He has everything in the world he could ever want: money, a job, brothers he loves, and the luck that comes with his powers. Yet he’s empty. Everyone but him knows he loves Allison, yet it’s going to take something stronger than luck to bring them together.

Allison Malone is exhausted. After the death of her abusive husband, her hell of a marriage is finally over and now she’s alone with her three children that are the center of her world. Long hours at work, plus mommy duty at home are taking its toll on her and that’s not the worst of it. Her late husband’s family is in town and they want her children.

The outsiders have secrets of their own and it’s going to take all of the Coopers, especially Brayden’s, help to save them. When trouble attacks, Allison will have to remember that she’s also a woman who needs love, and Brayden might be the one to give that to her.

Warning: Contains one sexy mechanic with a lucky streak, a waitress who needs to give into her temptations, and a love so fierce it’s bound to set the sheets on fire. Again.
