Writing & Instagram

A quick writing update: I'm currently halfway through what should be the penultimate draft of Archangel's Enigma. This is a fun, adventurous book, as befits Naasir. ;-)

Also, I am now on Instagram. I will mostly be sharing my travel photos there, so you won't miss out on any news if you prefer to just follow the blog. :)

I hope you're all having a great week!

Alissa Johnson - A Christmas Dance

My second novella rec for this weekend is a historical: Alissa Johnson's A Christmas Dance. It's a sweet, warm-hearted, and just lovely story of two people falling in love.

The hero is former military and has a PLAN to get himself a wife. Then along comes the heroine and all his plans take a tumble.

If you're looking for a novella with two likeable characters and a romance that'll make you smile, check this one out.

You can read an excerpt by clicking on the cover on Amazon.

Psi-Changeling, T11 : Labyrinthe de désirs

The French edition of Tangle of Need is now out! I hope you all enjoy Riaz and Adria's story!!

Tamara Morgan - Off the Map

I have a couple of novella recs for you this weekend. The first one is Tamara Morgan​'s OFF THE MAP featuring two members of a search and rescue team.

I have to be honest - at first, I thought the hero, Scott, was an ass. Like really. But then I realized what was going on with him and he melted my heart.

The heroine, Carrie, is awesome, so strong and positive and kind.

Their relationship has an enemies to lovers vibe, but it's also hilariously funny in places. I was reading this on a plane and I had to muffle my mouth so my neighbor didn't think I'd lost the plot (it was a scene featuring a voodoo Ken doll).

If you're looking for a sharp, funny, romantic novella, check this one out. Here's a link to the excerpt on Tamara's website.

Second rec to come tomorrow! :-)

Did you know that just like the Psy-Changeling and Guild Hunter series, the Rock Kiss series has a Behind-The-Scenes page on my website? It includes location photos from some of the places in the books.

This photo is from the Wintergardens that feature in the final part of Rock Hard. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Rock Hard Now Out :)

I hope you're all enjoying Rock Hard! I'm so excited for T-Rex and Charlie-mouse's story to be out in the world!

Here are quotes from some of the reviews popping up on the web about the book: 

"The first thing I said when I finished this book was that Gabriel was my new #1 book boyfriend. He was everything I love about a romance hero. He was strong and sexy and so dedicated to Charlotte." ~ The Bookpushers (MinnChica)

"THIS ROMANCE IS LIKE THE BEST KIND OF CHOCOLATE YOU HAVE EVER TASTED. Sumptuous, sweet, melts on your taste buds and leaves you feeling blissful." ~ Treat Yourself With Books

"I absolutely love these characters..." ~ Azteclady

"He is this growly, slave driver of a boss and Charlie is losing patience (anyone would), and this epic clash of T-Rex and mouse is so damn fun to read! I snickered and even laughed out loud few times.:)" ~ Lege Artis (Goodreads)

"I absolutely love their banter; their interactions just suck you in.  I really can’t say enough about this book.  It’s just awesome. " ~ Love N. Books

"And Gabriel Bishop – oh, be still my beating heart. I think I fell deeply in love with him right along with Charlotte. I think he has to be my favourite book boyfriend of 2015 to date...I just swooned with happiness and got a really bad case of the warm and fuzzies.  Even now, as I type, I’m grinning like a loon." ~ Becs (Goodreads)

Please feel free to leave a link in the comments, or to email it to me, if you've done a review!


Also, the newsletter has gone out, complete with bonus deleted scenes from Archangel's Shadows.

If you've subscribed and didn't receive it, or if you subscribed after it went out, email Ashwini (naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom).

Rock Hard - Final Countdown

Here's another quote for you as we count down the final few hours to the worldwide release of Rock Hard. I've posted a funny quote, a sexy one, and now, a romantic one. I think that sums up Rock Hard really well - it's funny and sexy but also deeply, deeply romantic.

This is a book about two hearts colliding and sticking (there are definite fireworks *oh boy are there*, and some sinful laughter, but there is also a tenderness that makes me smile goofily as I write this). I hope you all love Charlotte and Gabriel's story (I don't know if I want to cheer for the T-Rex or the Mouse...Game on!)

Get from: iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, Nook

Print Edition: Amazon (will also be available elsewhere as the details make their way through the system).
