I’m so incredibly excited to officially share some big news…

A prequel novella to my new PROTECT AND SERVE romantic suspense series will be appearing in WAY OF THE WARRIOR, an anthology featuring some of the biggest names in romantic suspense: Suzanne Brockmann, Julie Ann Walker, Catherine Mann, Tina Wainscott, Anne Elizabeth, M. L. Buchman, and Lea Griffith. And, to add an extra layer of “awesome” to this news, all author and publisher proceeds go to support the Wounded Warrior Project!


I’m thrilled and honored to be part of this project and to have the opportunity to give back to those who have sacrificed so much. And I have to give mad props to Julie Ann Walker, and to our agent, Nicole Resciniti, for their tireless efforts to make this anthology happen. And huge thanks to our publisher, Sourcebooks, for their generosity.

WAY OF THE WARRIOR will release in both e-book and mass market paperback on May 5, 2015. Stay tuned for more info as we get closer to the release.

In the meantime, you can pre-order your copy of WAY OF THE WARRIOR today from any of the following retailers:

I’m so excited to take part in the official cover reveal for the re-release of Kait Ballenger’s SHADOW HUNTER, the prequel novella to her Execution Underground series!  Now you can pre-order a copy of the novella for just .99 cents!

I loved this action-packed beginning to Kait’s series–even though the heartbreaking cliffhanger at the end left me reeling. And I gotta say, I absolutely love this gorgeous cover! It perfectly captures Damon’s internal torment.

Without further ado, offer up some cover love for Kait’s SHADOW HUNTER:



Author: Kait Ballenger
Title: Shadow Hunter (Execution Underground # .5)
Publisher: Harlequin
Release Date: August 4, 2014

Vampire hunter Damon Brock’s first assignment with the Execution Underground is Rochester, New York, a city crawling with the undead.  But he isn’t the only hunter in town gunning for vamp blood.

Tiffany Solow is fierce and ruthless when it comes to slaying the monsters that destroyed her family-and she works solo. But being alone is no longer so desirable when she meets the mysterious hunter who wants more than just her turf. As they work to massacre the local covens, the line between good and evil blurs when they are forced to decide between their lifelong beliefs… and their newfound hearts.

Publisher: eKensington
Release Date: August 21, 2014


To Catch a Thief…

For centuries, Gideon Montrose has served the King of Fairies without question and, often, without mercy. So when the King orders him to apprehend a notorious thief, Gideon obeys. But when he finally gets his hands on the beautiful culprit, Gideon’s in for a shock.

Arabella Locksley is none other than the spirited, unpredictable woman he knew back in Make Believe as Robin Hood — the love of his life whose tragic death destroyed his chance at Happily Ever After.

Now, he has an impossible choice. Betray the woman he once loved, or the king he’s bound to serve?
