It’s Here! It’s Here! Forsaken by the Others Is Here!

Forsaken by the Others Is Here!

Zombies. Vampires. Werewolves.
They All Want A Piece of Her.

Release Date: July 2, 2013
Release Date: July 2, 2013

The long-awaited 5th installment of the H&W Investigations Series is here!

The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with the mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem. . .

Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head. . .and neck. Luckily, Shia has the perfect excuse for getting out of town–namely, a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who’d like to turn her into a chew toy.

On Royce’s suggestion, Shia temporarily relocates to Los Angeles. But something is rotten–literally–in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. Who could be powerful enough to control them–and reckless enough to target the immortal? Following the trail will lead Shia to a terrifying truth, and to an ancient enemy with a personal grudge. . .

Silent Cravings is Here! Also, Last Day to Enter Forsaken by the Others ARC Giveaway

Silent Cravings: A paranormal romance novel about a werewolf in a magical fetish collar and the mute vampiress who owns him. Wait, loves him.

Silent Cravings

Today’s the day! Silent Cravings is now available directly from Musa. Or you can order from Amazon if you are so inclined.

What’s a vampire to do when the werewolf she craves is playing hard to bite?

Mouse’s un-life has been hell ever since the vampire who turned her tortured her and removed her vocal chords. Mute, broken, and living as a house guard under the protection of New York’s most powerful vampire, she never thought she’d be able to open up to someone again.

Christoph comes from a werewolf pack that has hated and hunted vampires from the beginning. All the stories he’s ever heard have led him to believe that they are nothing more than savage, conniving demons.

And now he belongs to them.

Finding himself in the hands of a beautiful, heartsick vampire wasn’t on his to-do list when he came to New York. His mistakes have led him and some other pack members into indentured servitude, and it’s up to him to figure out how they can all escape. The question is—-does he really want to leave?

Reminder: Today is the last day to toss your hat in the ring to win an advance reader copy of Forsaken by the Others.

Good luck to all who enter the giveaway, and I hope you enjoy Silent Cravings!

It’s release day!

Drama. Scandal. Secrets. And a whole lot of supernatural goings-on. 
“Where Darkness Lives” by Alexandra Ivy

No one’s more surprised than Sophia when she’s struck by an unfamiliar maternal urge to move near her daughters. But instead of being greeted by a welcome committee, she’s targeted by kidnappers…and saddled with a gorgeous bodyguard on a mission to protect–and seduce… 

“Murder on Mysteria Lane” by Angie Fox

When a werewolf trophy wife is found dead in Vampire County, Heather McPhee goes undercover to investigate. Heather’s never been a mascara-and-manicures sort of girl, but she’s willing to learn. Especially with sexy vampire detective Lucian Mead posing as her husband…

“What’s Yours is Mine” by Jess Haines

Still Waters is like many other exclusive gated communities–except that it’s home to one of the largest werewolf packs in the state. But Tiffany Winters isn’t frightened of her big, bad new neighbors. In fact, she intends to take her place among the pack…

“Werewolves in Chic Clothing” by Tami Dane

Ever since Christine Price moved in with her fiancé, Jonathan, and his twelve year old son, she’s worked hard to fit in with a cadre of local women whose lives seem picture-perfect. Except no one in Jon’s upscale neighborhood is quite who they appear to be. Least of all Jon…

Order from such fine establishments as Barnes & Noble / Nook, Amazon / Kindle, Book Depository, Books-A-Million, or your local independent bookstore!

Now, I know I usually run a contest before the book comes out but, as man of you know, things have been a little hectic for me these last few weeks wrapping up STALKING THE OTHERS (H&W Investigations #4).

To make up for it, I am running a giveaway for a signed copy of THE REAL WEREWIVES OF VAMPIRE COUNTY! Considering I’ve only signed about 6 of these so far, you’ll be the coolest kid on the block once you get one.

Not enough? Oh, all right.

In addition to the book, I will include:

An H&W Investigations T-shirt (women’s M/L/XL only)
1 book thong (your choice – HBTO, TBTO, or DBTO)
1 jar of candied hibiscus flowers (’cause, ya know… it’s froufrou and shiz)
1 Blood Bath shower gel (tell me that isn’t amazing and totally appropriate!)

Still not enough?!

Okay, you can choose one of the H&W Investigations books—HUNTED, TAKEN, or DECEIVED BY THE OTHERS—and I will sign it for you or for a friend. Your choice!

To enter, leave a comment on this blog post telling me what you think of the Real Housewives TV shows! Have you seen any of them? If not, are you planning on seeing them in the future? Or does the very thought of sitting through that make your skin crawl?

Usual legal blah blah blah applies. Winner will be picked courtesy of Random.org.  Open to all/international—unless your country has something against candied hibiscus flowers, in which case, that sucks. Check back on December 1st for the winner to be announced. The winner has 72 hours from the announcement to contact me to claim their swag, or I reserve the right to pick someone else based on the hilarity of their entry, chocolate bribes, and/or the position of the stars that day.


Good luck, and enjoy the bitchery!
