Air is finally here!

It’s action-packed, funny, loving, surprisingly family-oriented & deeply engrossing.

This is a book that I couldn’t put down and read in one sitting.

LB Gilbert does a great job with descriptions, presenting the heroine and main character as a bad ass chick that I want to be.

Woman empowerment! This is a great read in that it includes all things needed…action, romance (without sex), badassery, and great writing.

Some suspense, action of course, loads of humour, spunk and sass. Definitely looking forward to finding out more about this unique world and these fantastic characters.

To me, it was even better than the first one. The dynamic between the two main characters was great and a lot more sexually charged compared to the first one.

Not enough romance? Check these amazing deals from my awesome author friends

Bestselling author Shannon Eckrich’s FORBIDDEN is the twelfth novel in the dystopian paranormal romance collective, The Othala Witch Collection.

Falling in love isn’t supposed to be deadly.

In Sector Twelve, being a Natural isn’t only dangerous, it’s a death sentence. And Layna just happens to be one. If the council were to find out, they would surely kill her, regardless whether her sister is the Regent or not. She had sworn to her mother she would keep her abilities a secret, and she has no intentions of breaking that promise. Then Seth came along.

Seth is also a Natural, and Layna not only finds herself drawn to him and his powers, but the harder she falls for him, the more her past begins to emerge. Memories which were erased to keep her safe. To keep her hidden. And to keep her away from Seth.

According to a prophecy, Layna has the ability to stop her sister and the council from destroying the sector. And only Seth can help her. But there’s one problem. Seth isn’t only her true soul mate, but according to the prophecy, he’s destined to kill her. Unless, she can change the future.

Finalist Award in the 2015 National Indie Excellence Book Awards, Young Adult Fiction Category.

Thanks to her offbeat mother, Shade’s full name is Galactic Shade Griffin. Having a name like that while being the new girl in school is pretty much catnip for bullies. The summer before Shade’s junior year of high school, her mother breaks up with yet another boyfriend and moves them once again to a new town.

This time, they move into a dilapidated old house where Shade has an entire attic bedroom to herself—at least until she discovers it’s haunted by the ghost of a teenaged boy named Brandon Yates. When Shade’s best friend goes missing, her life becomes even more complicated. With the help of Brandon who’s struggling with his own issues in the world beyond, Shade faces the question of whether or not she has what it takes to become a true hero.

Although this novel deals with a number of serious issues—drug and alcohol abuse, cutting, and disturbing world events—it’s primarily a novel about a teenaged girl finding out who she really is and that she’s capable of so much more than she ever thought possible.

Kallisto, an ancient and vindictive vampire queen – and Lysander’s old mate – wants nothing less than final death for her former lover and his new toy. She’s not above letting the Acta Sanctorum, and its greatest vampire hunter, Santino, know exactly where the clan can be found.

With no time to mourn her old life, Alyssa’s survival depends on her new family. She will have to stand alongside Lysander and fight against two enemies who will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Bryn Halbrook had always seen the glow on the people around her. And she knows all too well what psychiatrists do to people who claim impossible powers. She’s always stayed below the radar, but when she discovers the meaning of the beautiful auras, she’s not sure why she was cursed with the ability to see the soon-to-be-dead and be unable to do anything about it.

But Bryn is on the brink of the unbelievable truth – she is a creature from myth. Valkyrie- a warrior maiden of the God Odin. And a Collector of Souls.

Aidan Lee just can’t do what he’s told. Visiting Craven was not supposed to be a time to fall in love. He’s just helpless when faced with the beautiful Brynhildr, but there is more to the biker dude that either Bryn or Aidan himself knows.

Can their fledgling love survive the secrets and intrigue, the reality of Odin’s realm of Asgard, the pressures of being a warrior of the gods,

But Bryn lucks out when the Trickster god Loki sets his sights on her. Can Bryn hold her own against the charmingly manipulative god long enough to discover what Loki is really planning?

Dead Radiance is a fantasy filled with passion and intrigue, betrayal and broken hearts, that will keep you turning the page.

Zoe Delarey has been hiding her entire life.

She’s not a normal girl, even by witch standards. Created by her father with forbidden experimental magic, Zoe is an alchemical child.

When the Regent suspects her father has broken sector laws, he hides her away in a secret stasis chamber protected by powerful magic.

But it isn’t her father who wakes her. Instead, Bastian, a handsome stranger after her father’s secrets, releases her from the chamber. With her father arrested, Zoe finds herself on the run from the Witches Council. She has no choice but to accept Bastian’s help, even though she doesn’t trust him. He might be rescuing her; he might be using her… Zoe is not sure.

Thrust into the real world for the first time in her life, she needs to learn to control her magic and, at the same time, get a handle on her feelings for Bastian. Neither of which is going to be easy. Especially when Zoe turns out to be the key to saving the sector from the savage beasts that prey on the lives of the people.

Will she fulfill the secret destiny that runs through her blood?

She drugged him!

Damien had never before been as outraged until he awoke in his apartment—alone. His head sore and his ego deeply bruised, his body ached for the release her enticing body had promised when they walked up those stairs a few hours earlier. The whole situation would’ve been laughable except for the fact that his wolf imprinted on her. Damien knew that from now until the day he died, she will be the only one for him—and she had drugged him. After a quick search of the bar, he decided that nothing notable was missing, leaving Damien hoping that whatever she was looking for—she didn’t find. Maybe, his delectable thief would try again, at his home next time.

Kassandra is the only Dragon Guard who has the ability to hide her scent. So, when the wayward Dragon Prince Dmitri is spotted in the same town as the wolf shifter Damien, it becomes her responsibility to see what he is up to. Not finding what she is looking for at his bar, she makes a plan to sneak into his house—imagine her surprise when he is there waiting for her. When he mistakes her for a common thief, Damien offers an ultimatum: spend two days with him or he will turn her in and plaster her picture everywhere.

Damien has two days to convince her to stay and give in to the attraction.

Kassandra has two days to get the information she came for and make her escape. But, with trouble circling them and her growing desire for him—will she be able to walk away? Will it even matter once he finds out who she really is?

It’s all fun and games until someone ends up undead.

But when she receives a desperate call to return just as a mysterious outbreak sweeps the country, Layla’s instincts urge her to go. Good thing, because the dead are rising.

Layla, however, isn’t entirely on her own. With her psychic powers growing, surely everything will turn out okay, right?

Not so fast. Just when Layla believes she might survive the apocalypse, a sinister and ancient force rises from the shadows to finish mankind for good.

Because the truth is, we were never alone in this world.

Now to the topic at hand…

I’ve had a few people ask me about my latest book, the Roman’s Woman and one aspect that’s a departure for me. What follows is a SPOILER if you haven’t read the book, but not a huge one.

For the first time my heroine is NOT a virgin. Several of you were disapointed by that and I know why!

First I want to address why I (mostly) write about virgins in the first place. It is intentional. The Singular Obsession books are an homage to all of those red cover Harlequin books I read when I was younger. I wrote Making Her His after reading like 50 Lynne Graham novels back to back to back.

You’ll recognize versions of those Harlequiny romantic tropes in this series. This is also a very deliberate choice. I wanted to do my own versions of those stories, but with certain “improvements”. I like my women strong. I detest emotional immaturity in my male and female leads. I once said my goal was to write characters you didn’t want to punch in the face. Yes, my men often do stupid things, but hey…they’re men 😛 Anything truly stupid they do will be mitigated by their unwavering devotion to their heroine.

Most of these books I’m referencing were about virgins. It’s one of the reasons I loved them. While in real life I would never expect that a woman abstain, I do enjoy it in fiction. I’m not making a statement about women or sex. I’m a strong advocate for equal rights when it comes to a women’s reproductive health. I don’t believe women have to wait for marriage or can’t enjoy casual sex. My stories are meant to be a pleasurable diversion and nothing more.

In books a virgin has an opportunity for clean slate, romantically speaking. They can have a fresh start without the baggage that comes from past disappointments or even past triumphs. There are, of course, exceptions. What makes a character a full-fledged person in my mind changes for each one.

Writing about virgins allows me to write a world where their first (or let’s be honest second) experience is an earth-shattering pleasure-filled dream. It sets a precedent for all their subsequent sexual interactions. Maybe it’s unrealistic, but I don’t write true-to-life fiction for a reason. The books I read and want to write are about as far from real life as I can get. I want the fantasy.

But it has to feel real. Yes, I love writing virgins—provided it makes sense with their life experience.

When I pictured Sophia, The Roman’s Woman (aka Gio’s true love), she was exceptional. The upbringing and circumstance of my other heroines led to them being virgins quite naturally, but Sophia just didn’t work that way. She’s a bit older than the others, more established. I didn’t think someone at her career level would be inexperienced. Additionally, I wanted her ex to play a role and that meant she couldn’t be a virgin.

To some extent I don’t write these books. I write what I see in my head. If everything is going well, it’s a process akin to writing down what’s happening in a movie. For this reason, I can’t promise all my heroines will be virgins. But most of them will be—when it makes sense. It is my fantasy after all 😛
