News: Serenity Sequel Coming Soon!

25 March 2008 SERENITY was released and readers were introduced to the Gezane universe where humans and bhresya share the planet. Serenity, human princess of Cheslav, and Melchior, king of the bhresya nation Nexeu, entered into a political marriage to ensure peace between their peoples.

Joining Serenity on her journey to her new home were her Hell Hounds, bhresya guards who loved her and had devoted their lives to keeping Serenity safe. Among those guards is Chigaru, the captain of the Hell Hounds, and Serenity’s closest friend. Though Chigaru’s love for his queen goes beyond simple loyalty, Serenity’s heart belongs to her husband.

After years of waiting and wondering and fielding readers’ emails asking if Chigaru will ever get a story (believe me, I know I took a while on this one), Chigaru’s story will now be told.

Coming December 2013 (tentative date, subject to change), KRISTAR, the continuation of the Gezane universe tales will be released from Bookstrand Publishing.

Chigaru wants a woman who will distract him before he commits treason. Kitty is restless with her life and needs a major change. She’s not right for his world, and he’s not what she expected. Together they will learn to compromise, to accept, and to love all the things of their pasts in order to have a future.

He wants her for his bride to end the dragons’ curse but his love for her is ruining his plans.

In the aftermath of a senseless war that claimed many lives, the gods have punished the dragons for causing the conflict. The next generation will not hatch until Prince Shurik finds a human female willing to put aside generations of animosity to become his bride.

Shurik doesn’t anticipate his growing feelings for Yolette, making the task of proposing that much harder.

Connor has no idea why Angelique left him, but he’s determined to win her back. As a werewolf, he has secrets of his own. Now his alpha is ready to force him to mate with an ex-girlfriend he can’t stand unless he can find Angelique and claim her as his mate.

‘Tis the season for unwrapping the gift of pleasure.

When Saskia snags a last-minute ticket home to the Caribbean isle of Anguilla, she intends to surprise her workaholic father and to reconnect over Christmas. When she finds he’s away on business, there’s still plenty to fill her time while she waits. Sailing, snorkeling…and an unexpected, very adult attraction to her girlhood crush.

Joe Prinsen is certain Saskia has returned to the island only to ask for money. He feels it’s time she learns the truth about her father’s depleted financial situation from the man himself. And he intends to make sure she sticks around long enough to hear it.

Except the girl he remembers has matured into a devastatingly sexy woman. She’s taking all his noble intentions and unwrapping them, one by one, until their shared desire is revealed in the warm Caribbean water. Saskia’s only home for Christmas. And once she finds out the secret he’s hiding, she’ll no doubt leave the Caribbean, and him, for good.

Product Warnings :: The only thing hotter than the tropical sun is the sex—in the surf, on the water, against the bookcase… Readers will be wise to monitor electronic devices, and themselves, for overheating.

She’s spent her life avoiding love

Captain Charlotte “Charlie” O’Brien, a doctor in the United States Navy, returns to her home in North Salem, Massachusetts to visit her family and make an important decision about her future. Mother Nature has other plans when a hurricane strikes, flooding the town and throwing Jake Sherbrooke in Charlie’s path. Initially she believes Jake is nothing more than a rich playboy, but quickly, she learns that he is so much more.

The media calls him Prince Charming

Jake Sherbrooke has never been one to follow the path laid out by his parents. That is why he started the Falmouth Foundation, a non-profit disaster relief organization rather than enter politics. When he learns of the destruction in North Salem, he immediately travels there to offer aid and meets Charlie O’Brien. Charlie is unlike any woman he has ever meet and he can not help but be drawn to her.

Soon neither can ignore the incredible chemistry between them. But will his reputation as a billionaire playboy damage their budding romance?
