“Bridenapped: The Alpha Chronicles” is now on Amazon

If you don’t have a Kindle, but have an Amazon account, you can download the Kindle app for free on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Bridenapped: The Alpha Chronicles

Website Link

Here is the description:
Bridenapping? That old tradition where the Alpha grabs the bride of his choice and takes her back to his pack’s property to submit to his lustful demands? That’s so 19th century.
Unfortunately, the law is still on the books, and quite enforceable. And even worse, the sexy new Alpha of the Verhold Pack has the nerve to stake his claim – on the human in Lakeville who has reason to loathe him the most. Caitlin Bellefont blames Kristofer for taking her family’s lands, but if she refuses him, it means financial ruin for her entire town.
Now Caitlin’s only hope of escape is to resist the scorchingly sexy man who is determined to show her the pleasures of submitting to an Alpha. Not only that, the whole world is watching – and not all of the eyes on Caitlin are friendly. While TV shows beg for interviews, and social media sites are blowing up with rumors and news leaks, it seems that someone very dangerous will stop at nothing to prevent this wedding. Can Caitlin sort out her tangled feelings for Kristofer, and resolve her family’s bitter feud? She’s got until the next full moon to find out.

Bridenapped: The Alpha Chronicles Will Be Released On Friday!

Or Thursday depending on how fast Amazon publishes. But let’s go with Friday. I am releasing it on Amazon only for the first 90 days, but after that it will be available everywhere. In the meantime, you don’t have to own a Kindle to read an Amazon book – all that you have to do is download the app to your computer, cell phone, laptop, tablet, etc. I read all my books on my Kindle app on my ipad. You do have to have an Amazon account to buy the book, but it’s easy to set up. I do apologize for any inconvenience to my Apple, Nook, Kobo, Scribd, Tolino, etc. customers.

“Bridenapped: The Alpha Gene” to be released soon

“Bridenapped: The Alpha Gene”, set in an entirely new universe, will be available either at the end of this week or early next week (on Amazon only for the first 90 days). I’m doing this because I have a number of readers with Kindle Unlimited, and I can only put my book in KU if I agree to be exclusive with Amazon for 90 days.

You don’t have to buy a Kindle to read it – you can create an Amazon account and download the Kindle app onto anything, including your phone, laptop, tablet or desktop. I read books on my phone all the time.

My books, in order

I currently have three paranormal romance series about shifters – Blue Moon Junction, Shifters, Inc., and the Timber Valley Pack.

Blue Moon & Shifters Inc. are in the same world – Blue Moon Junction is a small town in Florida, Shifters Inc. is set in a fictional city a few hours from Los Angeles.

Blue Moon Junction order – The Alpha Claims A Mate, The Bobcat’s Tale, Hard To Bear, My Heart Laid Bear.

Shifters, Inc. order – The Alpha Meets His Match, His Purrfect Mate, Pixie The Lion Tamer, The Bear Who Loved Me.

Timber Valley is set in a different universe, where shifters hide their existence from humans.

Timber Valley Pack: Bride Of The Alpha, Purr For The Alpha, Hard As Steele, Lynx On The Loose, and technically Taken By The Alpha – set in a different town but with overlapping character and in the same universe. The Alpha Won’t Be Denied is the sixth volume.

 

Why Would An Author End A Series?

Before I started writing for a living, I started out as a voracious reader. And when I found an author who wrote a series that I liked, I wanted that series to go on forever. I could never understand why authors would write some great books in a series, and then end that series.

Now that I’m writing, and I frequently write series, I have a better understanding of why that happens. There are two main reasons why I would not write any more books in a series that I’ve created. The first one, to be brutally honest, is economics. I always write what I love, but I also am writing to make a living. So let’s say I write a story that I love, but it doesn’t sell as well as my other books.  Big Beautiful Witches is an example of that. I freaking loved that story! And I got a lot of very nice emails from readers who also loved it. Unfortunately, my other books tend to sell literally about ten times as much as Big Beautiful Witches. Why is that? Do people love shifters more than they love witches? Who knows.  It’s just that if I am going to spend my time writing, it makes more sense to write what sells the best.  This is how I pay my bills.

Neck Deep In Vampires was another example of a story that I loved, but that sold way less than my other books. I thought it was a fantastic story and a fantastic universe, but economically, it was one of my biggest flops.  When I started writing a BBW universe with vampires, my earnings cut in half. I have no idea why.  Well, I have had some feedback from fellow authors, suggesting that it was too much of a mish-mash between urban fantasy and BBW Shifter Romance, didn’t clearly fit in either genre….again, who knows.

And the other reason that I stop writing books in a series is that I run out of creative juice for that particular universe.  I feel that I’ve explored the ideas that I want to explore, my characters have their HEA, the villains have been vanquished, and all is well with the world. Time to move on to new worlds and new adventures. Kind of like how Buffy The Vampire Slayer was an incredible series but it had to end, because you’re not going to want to watch Buffy The Suburban Soccer Mom Vampire Slayer Still Torn Between Spike And Angel. (Except now she’s 45 and they still look like they’re in their 20s so it’s a little weird.)

And now, off to create fabulous new adventures for hot heroines and sexy heroes!  More details coming soon!

I hope you enjoy! Let me know what you think!

Now I’m working on Virginia and Carver’s story…

…continuing from their first meeting in “Taken By The Alpha”. After that, I’m planning on doing Bridgit and the Beast.

Too many ideas competing for space in my head! I’ve got the next year’s worth of ideas rattling around in there, and I can only type so fast!

Here is the blurb for Virginia and Carver’s story – still working on the title…

Wolf shifter Carver may be sexy as sin, but he’s also smug and arrogant and Virginia Battle is ready to nail his hide to the wall. He keeps showing up everywhere she goes, scaring off all the guys who want to date her – and not making a single move on her. After one drunken night at a casino, she wakes up next to him in bed – with a wedding ring on her finger. Now her overprotective pack is howling for his blood (literally), he’s insisting that she’s really his wife, and before she knows it she’s whisked off to a sexy honeymoon at a mountain resort.
Just when Virginia’s starting to think that being married to a man who comes equipped with his own handcuffs might not be the worst thing in the world, she comes to realize that there’s something very wrong at Honeymoon Mountain. Does it have anything to do with the secret she’s been keeping from her family? And with guests disappearing from the mountain resort, the townspeople hiding a deadly secret of their own, and someone – or something – very scary sniffing around at her cabin, will she survive long enough to find out?

Links to My Heart Laid Bear

My latest shifter romance, My Heart Laid Bear, is now live on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I had a lot of fun writing it, and I hope everyone enjoys it! In fact I loved Clover and her family so much I’m tempted to write a sequel.

My Heart Laid Bear should be available today

I uploaded it everywhere around 11:30 a.m. eastern standard time.

And – drumroll please – I am going to make this book available in print! Then I’m going to go back and make all of my other books available in print. Dancing in the streets! Champagne and streamers! Handsome men in thongs! (Hey, it’s my celebration – I can custom design it to go how I want.)

I will let everyone know when the print editions are available.

“My Heart Laid Bear” to be released this week (March 5)

I have been taken to task, and quite rightly so, for not posting often enough. I promise to start posting and updating more regularly.

My Heart Laid Bear will be published this Thursday or Friday.

And after that, I will be working on Virgina and Carver’s story, from Timber Valley. Go bears!

And here is the sexy cover!
