I’ve had to sit on this cover for weeks…but now here it is:
Blurb for Breaking Chance:
What a girl wants—and what a girl needs—are sometimes two different things…
For Melissa “Lucky” Chance, another stretch in Ganymede’s ice prison is nothing new. The flash-freeze that’s supposed to destroy her will only leaves her with an insatiable desire for the first hot body she lays eyes on. Except this time, she faces a death sentence. Her only hope of escape lies with the man known as The Butcher.
John Ramius understands the logic behind his conviction as a criminally insane mass murderer. No man should have been able to slaughter over fifty men in as many minutes, but no one sees the underlying curse that compels him to sense—and fulfill—someone’s deepest need. Chance’s skill will free him to kill the Sun-King; he will find no rest until he does.
As they run from the forces of the Jovian colonies, Ramius finds himself temporarily sidetracked, not only by Chance’s relentless desire, but by her underlying, unspoken need. Ignoring it—or his own compulsion to do every wicked thing to her imaginable—is not an option.
Only after all their defenses are stripped away do they discover that their meeting wasn’t by chance. Someone is manipulating them both, and the only way out is the path to their destruction…
Warning: This book contains explicit sex, thieves, murderers, a sentient ship and a hero who will give you exactly what you need. Not responsible for reader’s sudden compulsion to jump significant other’s bones.

I was inspired by a tweet – sorry, I’ve lost the link now, bad me – to create something visual to inspire me into next year. I think I’ve strong armed some of my writer friends into doing it too, lol Anyway, here’s my effort:

Easy part of his day? Resurrecting the dead. Hard part? Keeping them alive.
Kaede is a witch whose family has been bound to a powerful House for over a thousand years. And he hates it. Despite the fact that his lord, Tarou, murdered his mother, Kaede is sworn never to harm the man who could kill him with just seven words. Now he’s been commanded to use his unique powers to resurrect Tarou’s wife from the dead, and he has no choice but to comply. Things go horribly wrong when he accidentally pulls the wrong soul back. Now it’s not just his own life he must try to save.
Vara’s day couldn’t get much more bizarre. One moment she-s a captain in the Temple Guard. The next, she finds herself transported into a world of magic and witches-and stuffed into the body of a lord’s wife. Unwillingly plunged into middle of a deadly power struggle, the only one Vara can turn to is Kaede, the witch responsible for dragging her into this alien world. A witch she finds far too attractive…
Warning: This book contains the following; magic, witches and more body-swapping than is safely sane.
And Mrs Giggles said about it: ‘Weaving Words is easily one of the most interesting short stories I’ve read in a while and I love it. I love the ghoulish way the magic works in that setting and I love the story. I love the way things turn out.’
It appears to be free to the US only, btw…
