Sale! Ruthless Beauty

I think I had the fastest acceptance for a story ever on Saturday.  I set it at 8pm and got a reply back by 8am  *grin*  Suz works fast!! lol

So Ellora’s Cave will publish Ruthless Beauty, which is a dark mix of fae and forced seduction.  I’ll tackle the blurb soon, but there’s a link to a little sneak peek in the last post…

Racing to a deadline

Sorry for the lack of posts…but I’m racing to a deadline to get my shifter story finished. Argh

Good news is that I sold Dark Host to Liquid Silver Books 😀

Here’s the blurb:

Feline Mosaic, Charis Sur, thought her mission aboard the INS Pagidion would be quick, easy: watch her target and keep him alive until Betelgeuse went nova.

Simple.

Well, until one of the passengers drops dead in front of her.

Her life depends on a successful mission and she has to protect her target from whatever killed this man. And that throws her into the path of Jason Narak. The one man she never wants to see again. The man who burned her six months before. Even as her past with Jason hurls her mission, her life into disarray, Charis finds that darkness is waiting for them aboard the INS Pagidion.

It wants a host. And its choice is growing…

And I have to run again!

Back, part two

Crappy, crappy, crappy Orange.  No sooner were we back on line, than it was down again.  The Ent ranted for a week, somebody pulled their finger out somewhere, and now we’re back again. Yay.  We were both seriously in withdrawal, lol

On the kidney front, I have only one hole left and it’s being a bugger and refusing to heal.  Practically all the pain is gone, but I have to restrict movements as everything seems to keep this bloody thing open.

And writing… I can give the hint of another sale, this time to Ellora’s Cave: Exotika 😀  I still have to sort out the details, and write a blurb, so more soon.

Now, I’m off to surf, surf, write and surf…

Chosen One… it’s official

So I can reveal one of my recent sales… It’s called Chosen One working title Paladin and it’s been accepted for Ellora’s Cave’s ‘Creamy’ theme, out in August. Here’s the blurb:

Ceta Lars doesn’t want to be chosen.

It’s the dream of every candidate in the Schedir-prime temple…every candidate except her. Chained to the dark perfection of the sovereign’s paladin, the chosen one is taken aboard their master’s vast ship. Compounding her fear of the unknown is her attraction to the mysterious paladin. For years, her brief glimpses of him have tantalised her, stolen into her dreams, filled her thoughts. But he’s the one man she can’t have.

Now Ceta must stand with the other candidates, not knowing what the future holds as the paladin strides towards her.

She knows only one fact. None of the chosen return.

Yay, a sale!

Can’t spill all yet, until the contract’s again left my hot little hands *grin*  But I can say it was the wip formerly known as Reiver ~ my slightly different take on vampires, hehe.  The new titles are in the ether to the editor, so hopefully I can tell all soon 😀

Flesh and Shadows…an EC sale

So the contract has left my hot little hands and I can officially say I’m an EC author now *grin*

They contracted my ‘Succulent’ theme story FLESH AND SHADOWS. It’s due for release in May.
And thank you to Mima for the title. I love it! Can you tell I’m back in full-on *squeee* mode again, lol

This is the blurb:

Flesh-fruit. The First Minister’s favourite delicacy and, thanks to her boss, Agent Niamh Sullivan’s responsibility. A coup on the planet where it grows has forced a change of administrator. Now she must cross the quadrant to evaluate Zeta-Draconis-prime’s new leader, Isaac Rand. Rand intrigues her, tempts her…but she has her orders. Her duty comes first. Always has. Always will.

Rand has a secret. He’s been bitten by one of the deadly shadow-snakes who also share the planet and he’s changed. He will go to any lengths to see that he remains in charge of his planet, including using his alien abilities to convince Niamh to lie to her superiors. His plan is simple, but what he doesn’t realise is that his venom is an aphrodisiac. With it, Rand has become irresistible.

Now Niamh must deny their overwhelming mutual attraction. But as their need for each other spirals out of control the danger becomes apparent. Rand will take her humanity, take who and what she is. Niamh has to make the choice. Turn him in. Or succumb to his forbidden temptation.

Now I have to throw myself into cyberpunk yumminess. I have so much fun writing, it hardly seems decent 😉
