Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and then we’re on to Christmas. Are you ready for the New Year? I’m ready to start fresh and new and hopefully with a schedule that can include more writing. Very soon you will be able to find my Archangel books on the shelves at BookPeople in Austin, TX. Then I hope to have my fourth Archangel book available online early in 2018. The goal for my Gargoyle Masters is still May 2018 for three books.

For now, I’m giving all of my free time to my family. I hope all of you are able to do the same.

Monday Thoughts

I don’t write enough blog posts, so I’ve decided to do a quick update. Easter weekend was awesome, I hope yours was too. We traveled to Denton to spend it with our college student, and explored Grapevine. It’s a neat little town that I highly recommend, especially if you like wine.

Next week my husband and I are taking our first cruise together, without the kids, to the Bahamas. I can’t wait! This is going to be the longest week of my life, especially at work. I expect to be impatient every minute of this week.

In a few weeks Comicpalooza will be happening here in Houston. If you’ve never been I highly recommend checking it out. It’s a weekend long convention of so much more than comic book artists and writers. I will be speaking on three different panels, but will not have a table in the sales area this year. I’ll post my schedule on Facebook as soon as I have it.

I hope all of you have an awesome week!

New Release from Tina Donahue

A hunted pirate captain. A reverend’s daughter determined to bring him down.

On a lush, secluded island, one passionate adventure leads to another….

Diana Fletcher means business. The beautiful, innocent, reverend’s daughter has traveled all the way to a tropical island off Madagascar on a mission: To find her brother—and to punish the man who drove him to a life of piracy. But when she comes face to face with the enemy in question, the handsome, powerfully seductive man is not at all what Diana expected…

Tristan Kent never intended to harm Diana’s brother. A man of humble origins, Tristan claims he tried to save him from another ruthless captain. Diana is desperate to believe he is telling the truth…and that the intoxicating desire that escalates between them is true as well. But can she trust him? Or is Tristan’s story—and his heart—nothing more than fool’s gold? Amid the haze of sensual delights and soaring ecstasy Tristan has in store for her, all will be revealed…

Excerpt:

Tristan brushed his lips against hers, teasing, testing. Diana softened beneath him, proving what he needed to know.

Gently, he eased his tongue into her mouth. The world spun, her thrilling heat snatching his breath and thoughts. He explored her intimately, deepening his kiss. Her taste soon belonged to him, his to her. They were no longer separate. He hoped she’d suckle him and deliver pleasure.

She resisted briefly, then coaxed his tongue deeper into her mouth. Pleased beyond belief, he released her wrists, slid his hands over her palms, and laced their fingers.

She yielded fully. She smelled like an English spring, soft rain mixed with fragrant flowers. He didn’t finish their kiss until she smelled of him. Slowly, he withdrew his tongue, lifted his head, and struggled for breath. “Open your eyes.”

Arousal brightened them, her mouth still wet with him, lips slightly bruised from his impassioned kiss.

His spirits soared. “You desired that.”

“I did not.”

As a clergyman’s daughter, she was a poor liar and would never fool him. “Then I’ll have to continue until you do.”

He kissed her, tenderly at first, then hard and greedy. She whimpered in what sounded like pleasure but held back, not giving herself fully. Finally, she tore her mouth free.

He pressed his lips to her neck. Her breath spilled out on a contented sigh, telling him what words never could. “I’ll not deliver you to Bishop. You belong to me.”

Celebrating My New Releases!

downloadI know it’s been a while, but this summer I have FOUR new releases!! Two are completely new ebooks in two of my series. One is a new print book, also from one of my series. And the fourth is a re-edited version of my very first published book. To celebrate all of these releases I’m giving away an amazing piece of art, signed by the artist.

My first new ebook release is Born of Magic, which will be out next Tuesday, July 12th from Samhain Publishing. It’s book two in my Gargoyle Masters series.

As his month-long guard duty comes to an end, Master Wynnston should be looking forward to well-deserved time away from the king’s castle. Instead, he feels strangely reluctant to leave. When Zephara of the Pastelle race arrives, he realizes why.

The stunning, silver-eyed ambassador is the woman his heart, body, and soul have been waiting for. She’s also a powerful wizard who will endure the test of the Twenty. Wynn has never been afraid to woo a strong woman, but winning and keeping Zephara’s love will test him to the limit.

Meanwhile, pure chance has finally led Master Kephas to find the runaway Princess Theodora. But before he can return the frightened, skittish beauty to her father, he must win her trust—and her heart.

Physical strength will do Wynn and Kephas no good as they face their challenges. And two women will search deep within themselves for the strength, courage—and tenderness—to bring two powerful men to their knees.

 My second new ebook release is Saving Her Angel, Book Three in my Archangel series from Entangled Publishing. It will be available August 8th.

 My newest print book is Two Can Play, the 

second half of my Love Beyond Barriers Series from Ellora’s Cave Publishing. It contains two novellas: Too Hard to Break, and Too Much to Lose.

And last but not least is my biggest announcement: the reissue of They Call Me Death! I’ve completely re-edited Alexia and Andor’s story with the help of a fabulous new editor and Samhain Publishing. There will be a new cover as well, and it will hopefully be out by September. So look for more news about it soon.

So, I’m celebrating by giving away the Beauty and the Beast reimagined art by Joel Santana, signed and numbered by him. All you have to do to enter is outlined in the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!!

Cover Reveal: Born of Magic

d99bf-bornofmagic72lgHere it is! The second book in my Gargoyle Masters series is titled Born of Magic and it will be out this summer. This is Master Wynnston and Master Kephas’ book. Here’s a sneak peek:
 
Guarding a kingdom takes mere strength. Guarding their hearts takes something more.

Warning:  If you’re looking for ugly stone creatures, move along—you won’t find them here. If you like hot, protective, males who aren’t intimidated by strong, assertive females, settle in and turn the page.
