New M/M Release....Shattered!


SHATTERED

With a mysterious past he can’t remember, and special powers he can’t explain, Simon Saint-Saëns hunts the creatures of darkness others fear—beings that come through dimensional rifts into this world from a world called Vertigo. It’s a dangerous, desolate existence, and with only one exception from long ago that left him broken-hearted and riddled with guilt, Simon’s chosen to isolate himself and fight alone. But when the man he’d once loved and thought dead makes a sudden and shocking appearance, Simon finds himself torn between his self-imposed duty and the deeply entrenched feelings he still has for Jaden Cole.

Enslaved in Vertigo since childhood, Jade was one of the innocent lives Simon saved when he first began hunting. Simon took him in and nursed him back to health, but when their friendship grew into something deeper, he sent Jade away and cut him out of his life. Nine years later, when a new evil stirs to life in Vertigo and targets Simon as its enemy, Jade returns. He’s not the same innocent he was when he and Simon first met, though. The years as a slave in Vertigo left him with a permanent and savage affliction, one he must battle constantly in order to keep a tentative grip on his humanity. His reunion with Simon is emotional and complicated. But even though he’s now a creature of darkness, he’s never stopped loving Simon and will risk everything to protect him.
After a battle in which Simon is almost killed, Jade knows there’s only one being powerful enough to help them. He and Simon journey into the dark caverns beneath the city to an ancient realm of magic and illusion. There, Jade makes a deal that will help ensure Simon’s protection from the wraith that wants him dead. However, in a world where human inhibitions are stolen at the door, and primal passions reign, Jade quickly finds himself losing control not only of the beast that lives within him, but a dark dangerous secret he’s yet to share with Simon…one that could shatter everything.

Newest release...Under My Skin II

My newest release (well, kinda new...it came out July 6th) is Under My Skin II. Yep, the sequel to Sebastian and Dylan's story Under My Skin. So for those of you who've been wondering what happens next... :)

Sequel to the Amber Allure #1 bestseller...Under My Skin!

Sebastian Keller’s lived with the label “the smart guy” most of his life. He hasn’t always appreciated it, and it certainly hasn’t worked to his advantage in most romantic relationships—for years it seemed he was destined to attract the wrong type. So the last thing he’d wanted this past spring was to fall for the hunky tattoo artist who moved his shop in next door to Sebastian’s thriving bookstore. Dylan Radamacher, owner of Rad Tattoos, was everything Sebastian loathed. Let’s face it…bookish geeks and counterculture bad boys weren’t made to mix. Something Sebastian knew from painful personal experience.

But when Dylan, with his teasing smile, hot, inked body, and come hither voice, set his sights on Sebastian, determined to prove that some bad boys could be very, very good indeed, Sebastian found the man impossible to resist.

For two months now things between them have been sinfully spectacular, so Sebastian hates to rock the boat. But the truth is…in spite of his own commitment issues, he’s fallen in love with the sexy tattooist. Dylan, on the other hand, seems determined to avoid the “L” word at all costs. As their relationship makes a turn toward the serious side, can the guys overcome their fears and take the steps that will bring them the kind of love that lasts a lifetime? Or will their old baggage come back to haunt them and tear them apart for good?

You want a copy...you know you do! LOL! If so, you can get it at Amber Allure or at All Romance Ebooks.

And for those of you who prefer paperbacks to ebooks...it will be out later this month in paperback! The paperback version will contain both Under My Skin part 1 and part 2!

I hope everyone's having an awesome summer!

Newest release...Vertigo!

And this was my late May release, Vertigo!  It's the first in a series called The Vertigo Chronicles.  :)


#1 Bestseller at Amber Allure!

Book 1 in the Vertigo Chronicles!

Each night Simon Saint-Saëns hunts the creatures of darkness that others fear—beings that come through dimensional rifts into our world from a world called Vertigo.  Simon has unexplained superpowers that help him fight, but his is a desolate existence, fraught with danger.  He works by himself and never allows anyone to get too close to him because his powers come at a terrible cost—a secret he’s never revealed to anyone.  Better to be alone than jeopardize the life of someone he cares about.     

Enslaved in Vertigo for years, Jaden Cole was one of the innocent lives Simon saved when he first started hunting.  Jade had almost forgotten what it meant to be human…until Simon found him and brought him back to this world.  But when their friendship turned into something more, Simon sent Jade away and cut him out of his life to keep Jade safe. 

Nine years later, when a new, powerful evil stirs to life in Vertigo and targets Simon as its enemy, Jade returns.  He’s not the same innocent he was all those years ago, though.  Now he has his own secret, one that could turn Simon against him, even force Simon to kill him.  But Jade’s willing to risk everything, even his life, to save the man he’s always loved.

Newish release...Under My Skin!

Yeah, I'm behind in posting to my blog.  As usual.  But, hey...better late than never!  :)  This was my late April release...


#1 Bestseller at Amber Allure!

All Romance Ebooks Bestseller!

“The smart guy”—Sebastian Keller’s lived with that label most of his life.  Though he hasn’t always appreciated it, and it hasn’t exactly made him a man magnet, he’s put his intelligence to work building his store, Great Escapes Travel Book Shop, to the point it’s now the favorite recommendation of travel agents in the St. Louis area.  His customers—especially the jet-setting senior citizens—love him for his amiable personality.   

He doesn’t feel very amiable, however, when Rad Tattoos moves in next door to Great Escapes.  Its owner, Dylan Radamacher, rubs Sebastian the wrong way from the get-go.  The man’s insufferable, stubborn, and, worse, a bad boy.  Everything Sebastian loathes.  To add insult to injury, Sebastian’s certain the loud music, the congested parking lot, and the constant colorful parade of the counterculture in and out of the tattoo studio are scaring away his loyal, conservative customers. 

And yet, much to his annoyance, the teasing sparkle in Dylan’s eyes, his hot, inked body, and come-hither voice set Sebastian’s libido on fire.  Sebastian’s been there, done that with the bad boy type before, though, and almost lost everything because of it.  There’s no way he’s going down that road again. 

But when Dylan sets his sights on Sebastian and is determined to take him for a walk on the wild side, Sebastian knows he’s in big trouble.   It’s going to take all his smarts and a whole lot of will power to resist the sexy tattoo artist before the man finds a way to burrow deeper under his skin…

Tattooed hunk/New cover!

My next gay erotic romance, due out around April 20th, is about a bookstore owner who finds himself both annoyed as hell at and turned on by the new shopkeeper next door...a hot, bad boy tattoo artist.  Totally not the  bookstore owner's type...or so he thinks.  Yet the man just lights his fire!

Here's the cover for the story--Under My Skin.



I think he's pretty hot, too!  ;)

Supernatural

I'm sure I'm waaay behind the times here and everyone but ME has probably already been watching this show, but holy moly!! I just discovered Supernatural and am completely addicted! I downloaded the first two full seasons and all the episodes of season three thus far from iTunes and spent a week gorging myself on them. Ever since Buffy and Angel, I've been struggling to find something to fill that niche. Doctor Who and Torchwood have helped immensely (love, love, love both those shows!!), but I've seen all the episodes of those and am patiently waiting for new ones, so I was once again floundering, empty, and craving something. Enter Supernatural. I LOVE it!! Great monsters and creepy things (I have to admit, a couple of the episodes have pretty thoroughly scared the bejeebers out of me), great writing, and Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have awesome rapoire. And can I just say I have the serious hots for Sam Winchester! Man...it's all I can do not to drool when I watch. :)

Anyway, for those who haven't seen it yet (like I said, probably everyone knew about it but moi!), check it out! Like...now!!

XOXO,

Happy New Year!

My mom always told me when I was a kid and would wish the weekend would hurry and get here, or wish Christmas or summer or next year would hurry and come, that I shouldn't wish time away because the older you get, the faster time seems to fly.  And boy was she right.  2007 was a blur in so many ways.  But it was also a great year, so no complaints from me!

I had seven new releases in 2007 (including novellas, novels, and anthologies), and 2008 looks to be equally busy and productive for me.  Here's my tentative release schedule for the coming year:

March -- Lords of Kellesborne (sequel to True of Heart)
April -- The Draegan Lords (paperback that will include True of Heart and Lords of Kellesborne)
April -- Under My Skin
May -- Vertigo (part of the gay superhero AmberPax at Amber Allure)
Summer/Fall/Winter -- Fires of Ballian (sequel to Lords of Kellesborne), Under My Skin II, Magic (sequel to Falling), Souls Moon (sequel to Souls Deep)

And coming eventually -- a sequel to Out of My Mind, a sequel to Hearts & Bones, The Silver Wood, a possible sequel to Vertigo and possibly more in the Under My Skin series. 

I'm going to be busy...but I like it that way.  I tend to thrive on having just a little too much to do.  :)

Wishing everyone a healthy, happy, successful and peaceful 2008!

XOXO,
ML
