Isadora opened her mouth to ask when a hand grabbed the back of her head and wrenched her neck to the side. She stumbled, ducking her head to make her neck smaller, and jerked up and back with the Lucerne hammer. The weapon lodged into the vampire, and she turned around. It only struck his shoulder, though, and as she yanked it free, the vampire was reaching out to snap it.

The man stabbed the vampire with his dagger. The vampire twitched and fell straight toward Isadora. The man yanked on her broken arm, and she nearly slammed the hammer into him.

“I’m—” he started to say.


She could not see the vampires, but a wild...

New Release Tuesday – How to Silence a Siren – and a Sale!

Blake Damon is about to face his fiercest foe yet.

Bodies have been found. Only bones have been discovered. Someone or something is eating humans. Whoever whatever is behind these attacks isn’t a vampire or a werewolf. Blake knows how to handle those villains but a siren? That’s both alluring and disturbing…

At the front of the ruined castle, I hesitate. Can I dare do this? How can I not? I will do all I can to protect her, she, Isabelle Mercier, the woman I have loved since before I could walk. A slight exaggeration, to be sure, but nevertheless, my love for her is pure and undying. If my own life should be forfeit to keep her happy, then I should be grateful for the chance to bring a smile upon her face.

A horrific beast. A desperate man...

Monday Writing Report

For the past week, I have been working on The Flames of Death, which will be in the upcoming Wraith and Ruin boxed set to be published in January. Imagine a world where dragons rule and humans are slaves. In your opinion, just what would you expect the dragon lords to want from their underlings?

A little snippet from When Vamps Bites which is currently on sale today and tomorrow for only 99 cents!


Fright leads to mistakes. Fear leads to death. I’m not ready to die yet. I’m definitely not going to allow this long-toothed goon to gnaw on my jugular and drink my blood.

WIP Wednesday – The Flames of Death

The Flames of Death will release in January in the Wraith and Ruin boxed set! Here’s a short snippet:

‘Vita needs a slave to pick his teeth.’ Corinth opens his mouth, revealing two rows of razor harp teeth.

Mouth duty. One of the worst obligations ever. I hang my head. What did I do to get on Corinth’s bad side? But at least once I finish, I might be able to sneak away for a spell. That alone makes the terrible chore worthwhile.

As you desire, it shall be done.

Again, I press my forehead to the ground. I hate this position. All of us humans do, but we have no choice. We have no power here or anywhere else for that matter. We are weak. We are prey. We are slaves.

Or we are dead.

Throwback Thursday Excerpt Edition – Of Bones and Ashes

A little snippet from Of Bones and Ashes currently in the Twisted Flipped Fairy Tale Collection!


On this occasion, the mirror revealed to me another vision. Bedridden but still wearing a beautiful garment, the queen no longer resembled herself. Her impressive jewelry rested on her bedside table and not on her person. Premature wrinkles aged her, as did spots kissed by the sun. Her eyes sank within their sockets, heavy blackness marring the tender skin beneath them. It appeared as if centuries had passed since last I saw her. The touch of death was upon her, and time was clearly running out.

Strange. The mirror never revealed to me the future, but she still breathed, as far as I knew. I would soon come to learn that, most likely, I had witnessed her ritual after she enacted the spell.

WIP Wednesday – Dark Hunt

Dark Hunt will release in late September! Here’s a short snippet:

The dry season had just ended. The first rainstorm would be any day now. For once, the day was somewhat beauty.

Perfect for an execution.

“Bring forth the prisoner,” the queen said.

The moment she opened her mouth, a hush fell over the crowd. Even before she spoke, those gathered only spoke in whispered, peaceful tones. Her voice contained incredible power. It would strike fear into the heart of vampires, hope into the hearts of humans, and acceptance and adoration in the heart of witches.
