Set Sail!

The Yacht Club is live today. I’m so excited to have these three sexy stories together under this fabulous new cover and to be able to offer them in print for the first time. If you like a steamy romance, you definitely should hop aboard and check out The Yacht Club.

Pax quote

Excerpt from The Yacht Club – Pax’s story, Peace and Quiet:

“It’s a long story.  One I’m more than willing to share.”  He leaned in close, his face brushing along hers, to whisper in her ear.  “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours.”  He pushed his bare arm against hers, making contact once again with the tattoo.  The picture forming in his mind had nothing to do with the exchange of information.

Pax gasped and then fixed him with a steely glare.  A second later, Tyler pushed himself away, his hands going instinctively to his groin.

“Now shortcake, that wasn’t a nice thought at all.”  He chuckled and shook his head.  She was as feisty as her red hair led you to believe.

Pax shrugged.  He should be thankful she just thought about kneeing him in the balls.

Hell to Pay – Another Sneak Peek


The countdown continues. Six weeks to go until the release of Hell to Pay! Here’s another sneak peek. Enjoy!

Hell to Pay – Excerpt

“There is a matter, however, that does require your cooperation and possibly your particular talents,” Salvador continued.
Ah, here we go.  The other shoe just dropped.
“I’m all ears.”  I leaned back in my chair and signalled to the waiter with my empty glass.  I had a feeling I was going to need another drink.
The waiter came, quickly replacing my glass with one that held a generous inch of tequila.  Salvador waved him off impatiently.
“You have heard of this new club, Wishes?”  Salvador paused, continuing at my nod.  “You will visit this establishment, observe, and report back to me.”
“That’s it?”
“I think you will find that is enough.  I feel this establishment is much more than it seems.  Take your wolf if you would like, and Maxwell Hart has agreed to accompany you.”
Surprised, I looked at Tomas.  The last time I had to go somewhere sketchy, he had been sent to babysit me.
Seeing my glance at Tomas, Salvador shook his head.  “Alas, young Tomas will not be able to assist in this endeavour.  Neither, might I add, will our friend Isaac.”
“Why not?”
Tomas scowled.  “The place is crawling with norms and mutts,” he said, using the derogatory vampire term for werewolves, “but no vampire has been able to enter.  There’s dirty magic involved, a barrier of some sort.”
“Magic!”  No wonder Max was going to join me on my little field trip.  If there was a rogue involved, it was the Coven’s responsibility to handle it.  They had a lot of face to save after the whole DiCastro incident.  “Max is better suited to the job.  I don’t see what you need me for.”
“There is something in the air, my dear Harry.  A shift.”
I started forward in my seat at Salvador’s words.  It couldn’t be coincidence that I had heard that word again.  “I’ll do it,” I replied with a sigh.

Hell to Pay – Sneak Peek


Release day is drawing closer. The edits are complete and the final files will be ready soon. I’m getting excited to share Harry’s next adventure with you, so I thought I’d give you a sneak peek. Enjoy!

Hell to Pay – Excerpt

“You told him you’d do what?”  Tess laughed and gaped at me in amazement.
“I told him I would cook dinner.  What’s the big deal?  How hard can it be?”
“Harry, you’ve never cooked anything in your life.”
“Sure I have.”
“Macaroni and cheese from a box doesn’t count.”
I frowned at her.  She had a point.  “Well, I guess it’s about time I tried then, isn’t it?  Now are you going to help me find a recipe or not?  I still have to run to the grocery store.”
Perhaps I can be of some assistance?”
The computerized voice came from the speakers on the desk in the corner just as the screen blinked on, its now familiar animated robot waving at us from across the room.
“Bryce!  Where have you been?  No, scratch that.  I don’t want to know.”  Now that Bryce had unlimited, nearly instantaneous access to anywhere in the world the Internet could take him, he tended to disappear for long periods of time, more often than not surfing porn sites.  I didn’t need to hear a play-by-play of his latest stop.
I’m eager to hear how the GhostCam 3000 worked,” Bryce replied.
“The what?  Oh, the tablet app.  It worked great, didn’t it, Tess?”
“Yeah, it did.”
Cool.  I’m accessing the tablet now via the network so I can analyze the recording.”
“It recorded everything?” Tess looked surprised.  “So we can watch it again?”
“Can we skip the technical conversation right now and find me a recipe instead?”
The printer suddenly beeped and spit out a page.  I walked over and grabbed it.
Easy Chicken and Rice,” Bryce intoned, his computer voice taking on an accent that suspiciously sounded like Julia Child.  “It only has five ingredients and a difficulty rating of one spoon.  Even you should be able to handle it, Harry.”
“Gee, thanks.”  I bit my lip, peering over the instructions.  “Actually, this is great.  Thanks!”  I sat down beside Tess at the kitchen island and made a list.  The chicken was supposed to take an hour and I still had to go to the store.  I needed to get cracking.
“So now that Bryce has solved your cooking crisis, can we talk about something else?”  Tess turned to face me.
“Sure, as long as it doesn’t have anything to do with you moving out,” I replied, only half-joking.
Tess snorted and then pulled a green sheet of paper from the stack of mail that had been sitting on the counter.   “Did you see this?”  She shoved it towards me.
I looked at it with a puzzled frown.  It was a flyer advertising a new nightclub called Wishes.  “No.  I’ve never heard of it.”  I pushed the flyer back to Tess.
“I think we should go check it out.  There’s a two-for-one drink special every night this month,” she replied, tapping at the flyer.
“Sure, why not?  What’s the big deal?  Why are you acting weird about asking me to go to a club?”  It wasn’t like we had never been out dancing together before, and my dating Nash hadn’t changed anything.
Tess bit her lip and tapped the flyer again, this time pointing to the address listed at the bottom of the page.  I stared at it a moment, trying to figure out why it sounded familiar.
“Omigod!  Is that where I think it is?”
“If you’re thinking that it’s the same address as the warehouse where DiCastro tried to sacrifice you to the Egyptian god Osiris, then yes, it is.”
“They made it into a nightclub?  Who?  Who owns it?”
“I don’t know, but I heard from some of the guys at the gym that it’s been completely renovated and totally tricked out.  You won’t even recognize it.”  She clasped her hands under her chin and batted her best puppy-dog eyes at me.  “Puh-lease, Harry?  Can we go?”
I wrinkled my nose at the idea.  I didn’t particularly have fond memories of the place.  I still had the occasional nightmare about it.  “I don’t know.  I’ll think about it, okay?”
Satisfied with my answer, Tess nodded and hopped down off her stool.  “Great.  I’ve gotta go.  I promised Uncle Rigo I would inventory the new crossbow supplies tonight.”  She turned and waved on her way to the door.  “Good luck with your dinner, Harry.”  She gave me an impish grin.  “Don’t forget the fire extinguisher is under the sink.”
“Oh, ha-ha,” I replied, flipping her the bird.  “Just for that, I won’t save you any leftovers.”
“Promises, promises.”  Tess grinned at me again and then hurried out the door.

Five days to go!

Our next spotlight as we countdown to Deadlocked, is Isaac.

Although they met under rather unusual circumstances and they have a unique relationship, Harry and Isaac have become friends. For his part, Isaac is enjoying the freedom to be himself for the first time in centuries.


Deadlocked – Excerpt

I think I was still smiling stupidly when I arrived back upstairs.  Luckily, Isaac was too busy puttering around the kitchen to notice.  It had been several months since Isaac moved in, but I still found it a little weird to see a vampire in an apron.  You usually don’t associate vamps with homey domesticity, but Isaac loved to cook.  He was a real foodie, but his specialty was dessert.  His excessive baking was the whole reason I had decided to open the coffee shop.

Six days left!

Today’s spotlight as we countdown to the release of Deadlocked, is Bryce. I’ll let Harry explain Bryce, in her own words:


Deadlocked – Excerpt

Bryce was…well, Bryce was a ghost who happened to live in my computer.  A computer hacker and online security expert in life, in death he had chosen to hang around, somehow discovering a way to inhabit the World Wide Web via my old POS computer.  A POS, piece of shit, it was no more.  Thanks to Bryce and his offshore – probably illegally earned – funds, my computer had been upgraded beyond recognition.  I wasn’t going to complain though, since it meant I had access to more of the internet than probably Homeland Security did.

Seven days until release!

As part of the countdown to Deadlocked‘s release, I’m re-introducing you to some of the main characters in Harry’s world. Today’s spotlight, Salvador.

Salvador Arroyo is the Magister or leader of the Cimmerian (pronounced Ki-MARE-ian). The most powerful vampire in town and a wealthy businessman in the norm community, he is the Kingpin of the underworld and has his fingers in a lot of pies.



Deadlocked – Excerpt

“Salvador, it’s rude to just let yourself into other people’s homes.”  I scowled at him and kicked off my shoes.  We have a bit of a difference of opinion as to the current ownership of the old firehall I call my home and place of business.  Salvador had signed it over to me, after buying it from the original owner, under duress I’m sure.  It had been part of a deal that unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control and totally orchestrated by Salvador, had fallen through.  We had renegotiated the terms, but despite having already given the deed for the building to me, Salvador still considered it his until our new deal’s conditions were met.  Since that meant it would be another six months before I was free and clear of him, I was not a happy camper.  It also meant that despite being a vampire and uninvited, Salvador could enter my home.  Damn vampire loopholes.
