We're almost ready for Forsaken to go to final edits. Here's a Sunday taste for you-- XOXOXO
I’ve learned that it can take a lifetime to mend a broken heart. Right here, right now, I’m ready to stop suffering this one. To stop suffering altogether. I glance over at Zack who is sound asleep. He didn’t get any rest last night, thanks to Demeter. He was too preoccupied with feeling betrayed, manipulated, played the fool. Just as Demeter intended. Fuck Demeter. Fuck the world. I’m not giving up. I’m not giving in. I have a role to play, a duty to perform, a failure to make up for. It’s what I do, who I am.
A Siren is a Siren. A sexual creature, born of Gaia. I’m one of three, cursed by Demeter thousands of years ago for failing to protect Persephone. It’s for this I atone, for this I pay. It’s the reason I work for the FBI and search for the missing. It’s the reason I avoid love at all costs. Finding the missing brings me closer to redemption.
Finding love? I swallow hard. That always ends in ruin and death. Once again, my gaze drifts to my partner, Zack, a dark, rugged werewolf who was formerly, and quite secretly, a badass black ops assassin. Also, formerly, my lover. We met during a case in Charleston about a year and a half ago. The attraction was instant, giving into it seemingly safe. The assignment was to be temporary after all. He was to go his way. I was to go mine. There was to be no contact between us. And, there wasn’t until he transferred to San Diego, to my unit. Until he became my partner both in and out of bed. Until we fell in love and I made the only choice I could. I took his memories to save his life.
Wow--has it been so long since we've been in touch? The new novella, Forsaken, is just about finished. Samantha is doing the last romantic scene since she's so good at it!! Anyway, hope to see you at Romantic Times next month. Please do introduce yourselves! XOXOX
A group of friends and I listened to Captured, Cursed & Reckoning this last month. We were wondering when the next audiobooks would be out and how many books you have planned in this series. Thanks!
Hey friends--we hope to have a new novella up before too long.
Here's a sneak peak at the cover we're considering:

Tomorrow at 11 am pacific I'll be busy helping Dara with her new release party. Not only is Dara a fellow fellow San Diego RWA member, the first book in her new Swirl Cosmetics series has the same book birthday month as my Fallen Siren Series that I write along with Jeanne Stein under the pen name of SJ Harper! I'll be asking some questions about the Prince Charming trope (can't wait to hear your answers), doing some give-aways, and giving attendees a special treat! If you can't be there live at 11 am - RSVP and set a reminder to pop in after and look for the thread so you can weigh in with your thoughts, participate in give-aways while contests are open, and get your special treat - which will be available through Halloween.
I just finished Reckoning and am anxious for book 3!!! I have been looking for a new series to sink my teeth into(pun intended), and have found it!! Thanks for all your hard work and creativity!!
