Soul Bound Cover Reveal




Ash laughed -- an evil, hollow sound – and grasped his knife more firmly. Kali blinked slowly, her heart breaking. This wasn’t her Ash, she reminded herself. This wasn’t the boy who’d sold his soul to save his sister, or fought by her side. This wasn’t the boy who had changed everything she thought she knew about life, love, and herself.
“I’ll die before hurting you,” Kali repeated, lifting her chin. He possessed the greater strength now, she knew, and would beat her even if she fought. At least, in the end, she would die at his hand rather than someone else’s. Maybe he would still win his soul back that way.

A boy who sold his soul to save his sister’s life.
A fallen angel turned demon, seeking her redemption.
And a surprising love story that could save them both … or destroy the world.

Join Ash and Kali, and a cast of dark characters, as they fight for the fallen angels of the world, the right to choose their own path, and the one thing they never thought they’d find – true love.

The Ryan Chronicles coming in... 2014?


Yes, the first book of The Ryan Chronicles is coming this spring as opposed to the originally scheduled 2015 date. 

While I was supposed to be working on FALLEN, which is the prequel to the Games series, CJ Ryan just wouldn't shut up. He wanted first dibs on my muse, not the story of how his father went from being a cop's son to being Frank Aris's accomplice in Survival Games.

So... the first book in The Ryan Chronicles is now on the schedule for release this spring.  And the cover is stunning, don't you think?

Here's a brief description for you all...

When CJ Ryan's girlfriend decides life is less complicated without him, CJ travels a destructive path into despair, walking the line between doing what's right and doing what feels good. But what feels good is a dangerous slope to travel, especially when Lucifer wages war for his soul.  

One wrong step and CJ could fall into the devil's trap, becoming no better than the demons he battles.

Look for an announcement as to the exact timing of this release in May!

In the meantime, sign up for my newsletter by April 15th for a sneak peak at the first chapter of Saving Grace!

Drugs, Guns, and Topless Sunbathing

Drugs, Guns, and Topless Sunbathing

Jane was kind enough to offer to share my news of a new release. I'd like to think it's because we're friends and business partners and we respect each others writing. Or maybe it has something to do with some photos I have of her while on vacation on a certain beach… Whatever the case, I'm appreciative and anxious to get on with my announcement about a new book that I was very excited to write. So, without any more rambling, queue the deep announcer voice: In a world brought to the edge of civilization by terrorism and economic collapse, one man… ah, screw it. That's too cheesy even for me.

I am very happy to announce the release of Marshal, the fourth book in my Wanted series! Is there terrorism and economic ruin and all that stuff? Sure. But it's in the past mostly by this point (in other words, read the first three books and start with Wanted – it's free!). Marshal pits Federal Marshal Carl Waters against some new adversaries that are doing their best to lay the groundwork for an extensive drug, weapons, and human trafficking network throughout the American southwest before the United States government is able to fully reclaim the area.

The excitement doesn't stop there though. Carl's daughter, Allison, has followed in his footsteps and used her tech-savvy skills to become a deputy marshal on his team. Jessie (Carl's Wife) is back and has used her entertainment industry skills to turn herself into a producer as well as an actress.

Tanya Kurkova, billionaire ice princess, and her devoted bounty-hunter turned personal assistant Sarah Gibson are back as well. And wow, are they back. In fact, one of the main plots of the book involves Tanya inheriting the corporate empire from her father. Of course that brings another character out of the past to stir up some trouble. Tanya's brother, Dustin. The same Dustin that once hoped to have his sister killed so he could become the sole heir.

So Marshal's got drug dealers, corporate intrigue, romance (including some twisted up love triangles), family struggles, undercover police work, a private pool with clothing optional sunbathing, and some international travel. There's a lot going on and it's a lot of fun watching Carl try to maintain his tough guy image while spending time with his daughter and reaching deep to try and offer a more sensitive side to support both friends and family.

The Death Chronicles Trilogy is now Available!



DON’T FEAR THE REAPER (Book 1):

The day Nick Ramsay’s eighth-grade teacher drops dead in his classroom, Nick sees his first reaper. When another cloaked figure appears at his grandmother’s bedside, Nick issues an order for the vile creature to leave her alone.

This simple act of defiance creates a domino effect that brings Fate and Death to Nick’s door and reveals his true lineage, throwing his world into chaos. To make matters worse, a group of rogue reapers declares war on humanity and Nick is the only one who can stop them.

HIGHWAY TO HELL (Book 2)

Nick Ramsay thinks there’s nothing worse than starting high school in a new town, especially in the sweltering Florida heat.

But being cast as an outsider is a far cry from the danger of his pending rescue mission to Purgatory to save his father from the grip of Leviathan.

KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR (Book 3)


As a senior in high school, Nick Ramsay should be focusing on his college choices, but instead, he's dealing with a tear between his world and Purgatory. Leviathan and a dozen demons are running amok in central Florida and Nick must herd them back into the underworld before Heaven opens its gates and sends down a pack of angry angels to clean up the mess.

The Progeny Series Cover Reveal!

The Progeny Series has undergone a cover transformation thanks to Cora Graphics! The new look should be available on Amazon by the end of the weekend and other venues by March 1, 2014.

If you like The Vampire Diaries, you will love The Progeny Series!

  The Progeny - Free e-book
“No fate other than the one I choose.” The timeless creed, and tattoo, bore by the Rousseau’s— a vampire clan with the purest bloodline of any vampire family. Out of this clandestine group came one who was different, yet the same: Ascher - a half-bloodling— half- human, half vampire.

Ascher questions the purpose for his existence and which world he truly belongs to: the human world or the vampire world. Two months from sealing to Ursula— a prearranged union to a woman he abhors — he’s at his wit’s end. He knows if he calls off the sealing, the Romanian clan will strike with deadly force, but he cannot see eternity with a cold empty shell of a woman like Ursula.

Just when he thought life was complicated enough, he meets Shauna— a beautiful, bi-racial human wiccan — and immediately develops an unshakable attraction to her. She makes him feel alive and vital despite his origins and Ascher makes a decision that turns his immortal world upside down.


Blood Bonds - $2.99

“Forever. For always. For eternity.”

The ties that bind two hearts are powerful. For Ascher Rousseau and Shauna McCutchin, it’s more than just a blood bond. Their union is that of vampire legend. Their love is a predestined prophecy foretold centuries ago.

It’s a week before Ascher and Shauna's sealing and the couple is making final preparations for their eternity, but Ascher's ex has other plans. Ursula is hell-bent on revenge—revenge fueled by lover's scorn and her father's death—and she begins breeding a fresh army of newborn darklings to do her bidding.

When Ursula finds a new weapon—an ally with the capability to dismantle the Rousseau clan— Ascher and Shauna's bond is tested and they must stand together against Ursula or lose each other for eternity.


Blood Promise - $2.99
“Their love is fated by an ancient prophecy. Now the promise is fulfilled.”

Ascher Rousseau is a half-human, half vampire whose life has been a series of prophecies and predictions. After finding incredible love and passion with Shauna—a Wiccan with powers beyond anything he’s ever known—he seals to her and hopes for happiness. But his enemies seek to destroy all that he loves, and he finds that happiness never lasts for long.

Darkness is descending and a vampiric revolution is nearing. A new brood of hatchlings is born to join their darkling brothers, in preparation for war. A preordained chain of events is set into motion that could lead to the rise of the demonic “cloaked one” and his half-human fallen children, while ending humanity—as we know it.

Can a supernatural love and the loyal bond of a family save the Rousseaus and the world from certain extinction?


Blood Reborn - $0.99 for a limited time.
“Hell hath no fury like a Wiccan reborn.”

Shauna McCutchin and Ascher Rousseau share a deep and passionate bond that merges their Wiccan and vampire worlds. Destined, they’ve endured trials and suffered unimaginable pain in their quest for a happily ever after.

Endowed with amazing supernatural abilities and the added attributes of her new vampire existence, Shauna is a force to rival all others—a dangerous new breed of vampire that defies conventional wisdom.

Darkness shrouds the couple’s pasts and enemies are determined to ruin their future. Will Shauna surrender to the evil side of her nature, or will she stand by Ascher’s side as the Rousseaus prepare for the revolution?

Shauna will either be an immortal miracle or an unholy menace.


Release Date - March 17, 2014! 


YEARNING: A BLOOD REBORN NOVEL (The Progeny Series #4.5)

“Destiny will not be denied.”                          
                                                                 
Like their siblings, Katy McCutchin—a powerful double Wiccan with otherworldly powers—and Gabe Rousseau—a full-blooded vampire—are destined. They’ve conquered many obstacles to be together. With their relationship at a crossroads and chaos erupting all around them, it’s time to take the steps that will finally link them for eternity.
