About the Book:

Vex was born into servitude, collared and trained into submission by the Xen’dari Empire. An unexpected turn of events offers him the chance for freedom, but Trexen were taught to fear freedom, and to fear themselves. Without the Xen’dari collar around his neck or a Master to tell him what to do and how to do it, Vex is faced with having to make his own choices while fighting against the instinctual, carnal nature of his Trexen heritage.

Cris is the last of her kind, enslaved by a man who uses her charms to subdue the crowds of his tavern and heal the wounds of his gang who attack the territories surrounding their outpost. When Vex steps into her world and kidnaps her into freedom, she must decide if she will accept it or if she will run from it and him.

Chapter 1 preview

“What do you mean, you’re leaving?” The words come out as more of a whine than I’d intended, but, well… Was he crazy? “It’s the freaking apocalypse out there!”

“Look,” he huffs, tugging his striped polo-shirt over his head. “You’re a nice guy and all, but… I’m not staying in Los Angeles, and I can’t take you with me to my parents’ place in Santa Barbara.”

And there it was. Apocalypse or not, even after living together for three months, I was still his dirty little secret he can’t take home to mommy and daddy. “You still haven’t told them you’re gay, have you.”

It’s a flat, accusatory statement. My arms cross as I sit naked on the mattress with my blond hair disheveled and my pale skin sheened in sweat. The bastard had seen fit to fuck me before he told me he was leaving me alone to die in this place. Outside, a feminine scream shatters the early morning. Yeah, Los Angeles wouldn’t have been my home of choice had I known civilization was about to end.

“Doesn’t matter,” he says, staring at the window. “My parents will need my help.”

But, what about me? I thought I mattered. I thought there was a ‘we’.

Stupid. Heart.

What the hell did I ever see in him? Well, besides that beautiful, tan body and those pretty blue eyes… Those eyes are narrowed at me now, and I can’t see the nervous newbie I picked up at a club six months ago.

He runs a hand through his thick brown waves. “Listen, Alex, you should really think about leaving the city yourself. It’s not safe here.”

“You think?” My eyes roll to the ceiling. “You know damn well I have nowhere to go.”

Chapter 1

When the end came, there were no zombies.

I felt a little lied to; betrayed by all those late night horror flicks I’d snuck into the den to watch while my snoring grandma was blissfully unaware her ‘little angel boy’ had gotten out of bed. There weren’t any atomic bombs, either, but I’m glad about that. I think I could fight off a zombie or two before they ate my brains, but radiation poisoning wouldn’t be my first choice for how to die. There was also no big volcano explosion, no Texas-sized rock from space, nor a giant global earthquake caused by magnetic pole-shifting.

New Series Announcement!

HC-buttonRound

Coming Soon – a M/M apocalyptic romance series.

HeartsCompassLGOur heart has its own compass. It knows where we should be heading, even if the rest of us doesn’t. Through loss and love, our heart’s compass guides us through life, often to somewhere completely unexpected. When the world ends, the heart’s compass of several people has them headed in directions they may have never traveled otherwise.

Each book in the series is a stand-alone story, but is written within the same fictional setting in which the Earth has just been struck with several massive solar flares. All modern technology has been rendered inoperable. Cars, computers, city infrastructure, phones – all gone in an instant and without warning. In the days directly following the end of the modern world, people must learn to depend on each other, and on their heart’s compass, if they hope to survive.

Freebies and a Sneak Peek

Happy New Year! I have two announcements as I head into 2015 full of new stories to be told.

1) FREEBIES: All These Pieces Of Me (The Stables #1, contemporary romance with BDSM elements) and Ghost In The Machine (Corwint Central Agent Files #1, science fiction romance) are now available free. If you haven’t tried one of these series, now is the perfect chance. The other books in each series are in the Kindles Unlimited program, so if you are a KU member, you can read the entire series for free (minus the latest release, Pierce The Heart (The Stables #4).

2) New M/M Romance series announcement! ‘Welcome To Alvarado‘ is going to be a new LGBT romance series launching in early 2015. Set in the small town of Alvarado, Texas, it explores the struggles, stigmas, joys and acceptance of same-sex relationships. The first book, ‘Right Back Where’, follows Sam as he comes back to the town he ran from five years prior to face old ghosts, past bullies, friends he didn’t realize he had, and to fulfill the dying wish of the one person in Alvarado he new for sure loved him. Rosie Greene always had a hug ready and an open door, and she helped nurture Sam’s love for music. She also had a jerk for a son. To ensure Rosie’s last wishes are met, Sam struggles to put aside his childhood memories of Cody Greene’s bullying. What he discovers along the way leaves him wondering if ending up right back where he started is simply coming back to where he should’ve been all along.

Right Back Where – Excerpt

Alvarado is a town that feels like home the minute you drive into it, its farms and fields not yet gobbled up by the ever expanding Dallas-Fort Worth-metro suburban plague. It’s impossible to ignore that feeling of comfort and appreciation for small-town life that hits me as I pass by places I remember from childhood, even if most of those memories are outlined in misery.

In those days, I’d wanted nothing more than to fit in with the people who closed shop early on Fridays for football games in the fall, or the kids who ran unattended down the street without big-city fears about not making it back home, and teens who snuck out to bonfires in the fields at night after helping their folks bale the wheat that morning. It had been an aching desire to be part of it all, but I’d been outcast early on. Relegated to the sidelines, because every town needed its pariah.
