Two rocking print releases

The print releases from Samhain this month rock. In more ways than one.

First off, they are 50% off at Samhain. THAT IS A MASSIVE SAVING!

And secondly, there are two rock star print books releasing.

The first is mine.


1) Rhythm of my Heart: Jess Dee

He rocks every woman’s world, but his heart beats only for her.Speed, Book 3Makeup artist Eve Andrews is an expert at blending into the background. Landing a job with the rock band Speed is the opportunity of a lifetime, and thankfully as close to the spotlight as she’ll ever get again—until the band’s sinfully sexy drummer turns his dazzling eyes on her.After a scandal shook his world, Zachary Pace, a.k.a. “Jonah Speed”, has given up the one-night stands and easy lays. One look at Eve, and he senses his self-imposed abstinence is about to come to a screeching halt—but he’s confused. His grandmother foretold his destiny lies with a beautiful redhead, not a tiny, brown-haired pixie.

Under the heat of Zachary’s intense focus, Eve’s resistance melts away, but not the façade that hides her terrible secret. And when she accidentally catches a glimpse of his heart’s desire—his fated redhead—her instincts tell her to let him go…before he gets too close. Before he sees the real woman behind her mask, and her heart is left in the dust of his almost-certain retreat.

Product Warnings

This is a Speed book, so you know there’s gonna be a small element of fantasy to it. And a big element of romance. Oh, yeah, and a whole lot of sex. Sex hot enough to make you throb to the rhythm of a very sensual beat…  

Rhythm of my Heart is available now from Samhain for only $6.30. (That is ridiculously cheap for a print book!!!)

The second belongs to Lexxie Couper:

2) Steady Beat by Lexxie Couper

He never missed a beat…until she taught him a whole new rhythm.Heart of Fame, Book 4Back when he was playing drums for rock star Nick Blackthorne, it was easy for Noah Holden to focus on the sticks in his hand. Now that the band is getting back together, he’s excited—and worried. His ADHD has made every minute of his post-Blackthorne life a chaotic mess.His apprehension is blown away when a bar waitress makes him a proposition—and not the kind this king of drums is used to.

When Pepper Kerrigan overhears the band talking reunion, she pushes her self-doubt aside, calls on her encyclopedic music knowledge and challenges Noah Holden to a trivia contest. Her prize should she win? An audition. His? A kiss. Their smoking sexual chemistry guarantees victory—for them both.

With Pepper, Noah is finally able to control his stormy creative energy. But when his wild past catches up with him, he faces the fight of his life to keep from losing his smoky-voiced angel. The one woman who keeps his mind—and his heart—staying on rhythm.

Product Warnings

There’s a thrumming primitive sexual energy in every rock drummer’s body just waiting to be released.

Steady Beat is also available from Samhain for the ridiculous price of only $6.30.

Happy reading,



Rhythm Of The Night Releases today

I’m thrilled to let you know that the first two books in the Speed series, See You In My Dreams and Colors Of Love are now available in a print anthology called Rhythm Of The Night. Isn’t the cover gorgeous?


Rhythm of the Night

Sex, drugs love and rock ’n roll.

See You In My Dreams
Sophie has not only walked in on a guest, but she can’t shake the feeling that she knows him from somewhere. She just can’t quite place him.

Convinced the “maid” is just looking for a piece of his rock-star alter ego, Nathan can’t help but wonder why she’s blushing six shades of scarlet. Then he recognizes her. She’s the woman who for ten years has haunted his dreams.

Their attraction is unstoppable, but just this once, he’d like a woman to fall for the real man, not the celebrity superstar.

Colors of Love
Seth excels at making his dreams a reality. Except when it comes to his band’s manager. Luke is everything Seth wants, but after five years Luke hasn’t committed.

After an abusive childhood, Luke thinks Seth is safer without him. When he spots pretty, sexy Kaz, he formulates a plan to seduce her into a threesome, then leave her and Seth to fall in love.

Kaz’s ability to read auras tells her Seth and Luke are madly in love, and if she doesn’t do something, the two men she adores won’t get the happily ever after they deserve.

Warning: These stories are erotic, contemporary romance with a dirty dash of fantasy thrown in. M/F fantasies, M/M/F fantasies, M/M fantasies. C’mon. You know you wish it was real…


The book is available from: AmazonB&NSamhain and wherever books are sold!



Two To Tango releases in print

(With apologies for the late notification. Life got in the way of promoting this last week.)

Two To Tango, the second anthology written by Lorelei James, Jayne Rylon and myself, is now available as a print book.

Check it out:


The bestselling authors of Three’s Company show that sometimes it only takes two to tango…

Ballroom Blitz by Lorelei James
Rock drummer Jon White Feather is home from tour to reassess his music career. When his shy niece begs him to take a ballroom dancing class, Jon agrees, aware he’s no Fred Astaire. Still, it stings when his sexy-hot instructor, Maggie Buchanan, tells him he has no rhythm. Now Jon is ready to prove he can rock his body—and hers—on more than just the dance floor.

Where There’s Smoke by Jayne Rylon
When Logan switches on the news to witness his childhood friend Kyana pulling his uncle from a burning house, he rushes home to help his uncle rebuild. But before his hammer hits the first nail, sparks are flying. The heat between him and Kyana melts old affection into a completely new—and combustible—relationship.

A Touch of Confidence by Jess Dee
Jack’s supposed to keep the family business on course while his grandfather is in the hospital, but his first act is to rent a shop to the wrong tenant. Now he’s faced with beautiful, Amazon warrior of a woman who’s demanding satisfaction. He’d love to give it to her, but his idea of satisfaction has nothing to do with business…

Warning: Couples bump and grind, turn combustible, and even quote Shakespeare in explicit, erotic detail.

Two To Tango is available now from Samhain Publishing, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.


In two minds

(And posted on two blogs. This one and International Heat.)

Okay, here’s where things get tough.

I have two more upcoming releases, and this is my last day to blog at International Heat.

So, do I choose to tell you about Two To Tango, the print anthology, written by myself, Lorelei James & Jayne Rylon, or do I let you in on a top-secret project that I absolutely should not be speaking about?

ARGH! Decisions, decisions.

OK…how about this solution: I post the cover and links to Two To Tango, as well as a link to an excerpt from my novella in the antho, AND post an excerpt from the super secret project I shouldn’t be speaking about?


1) Two To Tango:


This anthology features the novellas A Touch Of Confidence, by me, Ballroom Blitz by Lorelei and Where There’s Smoke, by Jayne. It releases on the 3rd of September, and you can pre-order your copies at Samhain, Amazon and Barnes & Noble. You can also read an excerpt from A Touch of Confidence here.

2) The Super Secret project I shouldn’t be talking about

Okay, so because I can’t speak about it, all I’m gonna do is give you a little unedited excerpt from the project. It comes from a book I wrote called Hunter Valley Hunger. Oh, and I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. I slipped back into old habits, and chose the first kiss scene.



An unedited excerpt


Lily would have stumbled in surprise had her mouth not been plastered to the hottest, most pliable set of lips she’d ever had the pleasure of kissing.

And pleasure was the key word here. Sharp tingles of delight skittered up her back and down again, touching the length of her spine, creating a pool of ecstasy so sublime it reached all the way down to her toes. Blood raced through her veins, sizzling from the heat of Angus’s mouth.

Angus—whose very presence at her home every morning made sleep impossible. How could she hope to get a decent night’s rest when at least every second minute alone in the dark was spent anticipating his early morning arrivals? Then there was the late afternoon torture—or delight, depending how she looked at it—when she got home to find him working shirtless in her garden, muscles rippling as he dug or planted. More than once she’d watched a bead of sweat slip down his spine or chest and been forced to find an icy drink…to cool herself down.

It took a second to find her bearings, to realize that one of the two men she’d fantasized about endlessly now kissed her. And then she lost herself to the moment. Relaxed against his massive chest, opened her lips to his probing tongue and kissed him back, savoring the hints of wine on his breath.

His tongue glided over her own with a demanding, velvety heat, and lust exploded in Lily’s belly.

Angus wrapped his arm around her shoulders, pulling her close, molding her body to his. Instinctively she pushed up on her toes, giving herself more height. God, he was enormous. The hours spent reshaping gardens had gifted him with a chest and stomach as hard as a brick wall. And he smelt so good. Like a man should smell. Soapy, clean and earthy.

She pressed her breasts against all that muscle, loving how her nipples tightened and tingled at the contact. In return, Angus twisted his hips, lining his cock against Lily stomach and rocking his hips.

Where those violins playing? Stars swimming before her eyes? Or was the unexpected taste of Angus Lowe enough to make her high as a kite?

Lily curled her hand around his neck and tucked her fingers into his thick brown hair, pulling him a little closer so she could gorge on the cabernet that flavored his mouth. The no-nonsense, audacious character of the wine rolled over her taste buds—deep red, aromatic and complex, just like the landscaper. Rich, fruity notes of cherries and currants melded together with the herby taste of olives, and tangoed with spicy notes of ginger and pepper.

Long, greedy sips told Lily she’d been mistaken. The delectable taste wasn’t wine at all. It was the unique, individual tang of a unique, individual man.

Angus Lowe may typify a salt of the earth kind of a guy. He may look like a magnificent eucalyptus—solid, strong and beautiful, but he tasted better than the finest bottle of red. Years spent maturing in a cask could not improve on his flavor.

Yet even as his kiss muddled her senses, worry clung to the edges of her mind.

Yes, kissing Angus might be the closest to heaven Lily ever got, but something wasn’t right. Something told her to stop.

Not instinct. Uh, no, instinct told her to drag the guy home, lock the bedroom door and spend the rest of the weekend doing very naughty things to him.

No, that something was a vague feeling of…betrayal.

Ah. Of course.

Reality washed over her like cold water.

Loathe to break the kiss, yet left with little alternative, Lily dropped her heels to the ground, a useless attempt to put some distance between them.

Angus didn’t seem to mind. He just leaned in and continued kissing her. Lily didn’t mind either. Not with the glorious strains of those violins playing every time his tongue slid over hers.

Wait. Yes, she did mind. Should mind.


With an anguished sigh, she clasped his cheeks in her hands, stilled his face and pulled her mouth from his. Reluctantly. Oh, so reluctantly…


Okay, so Hunter Valley Heat will be available soon. I just can’t tell you any more than that. Yet. But soon. I promise.



Tropical Haze releases today

The long awaited print version of Bandicoot Cove: The Wedding is finally available in print.

The three red-hot, contemporary, Australian e-novellas by Lexxie Couper, Sami Lee and myself have been beautifully packaged into one print book – Tropical Haze.


Afternoon Rhapsody by Jess Dee As Bianca puts her pending divorce aside to enjoy her brother’s wedding, she unexpectedly falls in lust with Brody, a gorgeous man who’s also getting a divorce. However, personal revelations change what they thought they knew about their troubled pasts. And suddenly they wonder if it’s possible to move on.

Sunset Heat by Lexxie Couper Kennedy never thought she’d see Luke again, much less be standing in front of him naked. Not only does he still light her fire, but so does his rake of a cousin. Luke fell for Kennedy months ago, yet he can’t stop thinking about sharing her with Addison. And Addison is shocked that he wants to know Kennedy on all levels—even the emotional kind. But desire this hot could destroy any hope of real happiness.

Moonlight Mirage by Sami Lee At her friend’s wedding, Hayley is forced to face the former boss whose rejection sent her packing. Mitch still makes her burn. Trouble is, she already has a date. Mitch knows pushing his former intern away was a mistake. Hayley’s “plus one” is an unexpected obstacle. Luckily, Mitch has never shied away from a little competition…

Warnings: There’s something about the air on this island that makes you do crazy things…like fall in love. Have wild monkey sex. Indulge in a threesome, exhibitionism, voyeurism, and a few other “isms” on the side. Best read with a frozen margarita in hand.

So if you haven’t had a chance to visit this gorgeous tropical island complete with luxury hotel and air that’ll make you fall in love…now’s your chance.

Tropical Haze is available from Samhain, Amazon, The Book Depository, Barnes & Noble or Aussie readers might want to try Booktopia


Red Hot Weekend Releases In Print

Yep,  it’s here. The print version of the ebook anthology, Red Hot Weekend, featuring novellas by Lexxie Couper, Delilah Devlin and myself:

Three stories. One weekend. Hundreds of fantasies to fulfill.

Dare Me by Lexxie Couper
Nothing prepared Emily for the Aussie who strode into her alternative cancer clinic and dared her to cure him. Eight months later, Rob is out of danger…and Emily’s in too deep.
Rob never thought he’d survive, much less fall for his oncologist. The problem? Her Hippocratic Oath hangs between them.

Hidden Fire by Jess Dee

Jenna is all set to spend the weekend wallowing in misery. Instead she’s tied to a chair, knee to knee with the man who broke her heart.
With one chance to show his partner in captivity that his love is real, Garreth methodically, wickedly, sets out to dismantle her defenses. One dirty word at a time.

Lone Heart by Delilah Devlin
Lone Wyatt is in no rush to find his one-and-only, until he spots Charli Kudrow. One look into her haunted eyes, and he’s ready to tear through every objection she can think up.
One killer smile from the cowboy, and Charli feels something she hasn’t felt in a long time—a spark of attraction. Thinking she’ll never see him again, she succumbs to temptation, only to discover that spark is a raging wildfire.

Product Warnings: Contains scorching passion, shattering desire, heartbreaking angst, Aussie sarcasm, no-holds-barred demands, and enough sexin’ up to knock you heart over bootheels.

Red Hot Weekend is available now from Samhain Publishing, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Happy reading.



I have gorgeous new cover art

Look, look, look!

It’s the cover for Rhythm Of The Night, the print anthology of the first two Speed books: See You In My Dreams and Colors Of Love.

What do you think?

Rhythm Of The Night releases on the 7th of Jan, 2014.

I know, that’s like in forever. Still, I’m happy to enjoy the cover art in the meantime.



Awesomely awesome cover art

I love it!

This is the cover for A Touch Of Confidence, from the Two To Tango Anthology.

I don’t have the official blurb yet, so I’m posting the unofficial one here:


He kissed the girl and he liked it. Now to convince her it could be love…

From the Two To Tango Anthology

When a coveted retail space opens up in Rose Bay, Claire Jones and her sisters waste no time grabbing the perfect spot to relocate their expanding children’s bookshop. But when Claire arrives to sign on the dotted line, she discovers someone else got there first.

Worse, the new tenant is shaking hands with a man who is definitely not the elderly Jack Wilson with whom she made an verbal agreement three days ago. This Jack Wilson is a tall, hunky giant—and no amount of righteous indignation can mask her body’s bone-deep sexual response.

Jack never planned to take over the family company; he’s a teacher, not a businessman. But with his grandfather in the hospital, he’s taken up the reins—and steered straight into trouble. Now he’s faced with a serious mistake, and a beautiful, Amazon warrior of a woman who’s demanding satisfaction.

He’d love to give it to her, but his idea of satisfaction has nothing to do with business, and everything to do with getting the curvy goddess naked. The sooner the better…

Warning: If you’ve never made love to a man who quotes Shakespeare during sex…be warned. You’re gonna want to after reading this book.


The eBooks of A Touch Of Confidence, Where There’s Smoke and Ballroom Blitz release on the 2cnd of Oct, and are available now for pre-order over at Samhain.

I’ll leave you with a peak of hte three other covers in the anthology: The print cover, Two To Tango (which releases next year), Jayne’s Where There’s Smoke, and Lorelei’s Ballroom Blitz.
