It's summer break. My little guy is home all day which means less writing time for me. Yet I have some fun and geeky summer reading for you. Layers of Lace (Dice & Debauchery #2) was just released. It's my favorite story in the series! The third and final book, Masked Kiss, will be released on June 26th, 2015.

The first book in my hilarious and erotic series, Loose Corset, won an award from the 2015 Easychair Bookshop Competition. It came in fourth in the novella category. I'm excited and honored to be amongst the top five. Check out the other great reads in the competition on their site.

I've been reading and writing short stories lately. Be on the look-out for my sci-fi horror tale, "The Silent Wind" coming this fall in Untethered Realms' newest anthology, Mayhem in the Air.

Amateur cosplayer Emily Solis is determined to win the costume contest and the heart of her biggest competition.

It isn't the first time Emily has shed her costume with the gorgeous Russell Morrison. Not even her best friend knows she's been having wild convention sex with him for over a year. It was supposed to remain physical, but Emily couldn't help falling for him and his kinky ways. In a moment of passion, she rolls the dice and tells Russell she loves him. He doesn't say it back. Can she convince him they're perfect together or will she roll another critical failure?

"Can’t recommend this series enough to anyone wanting explosive sexual attraction, plenty of delicious raunchiness, and characters you can’t get enough of." 5 stars

Of Blood and Sorrow.

Erin Driscol works the perfect job consoling fellow demons by feeding off their grief at Putzkammer & Sons Funeral Home.

When fledgling vampire Nicolas Reese comes to Erin for help, she learns the truth behind the legends and hides him from his sire and the vampire hunters who seek him. But when the Putzkammers begin to die one by one, Erin is caught between her act of kindness and the need to save her adopted family. Only by facing her own personal demons can she stop the slaughter and still rescue Nicolas from his dark fate.

"Plenty of humor, plenty of action, plenty of romance, and plenty of F-bombs—Of Blood and Sorrow ends with a satisfying finish. Sure, there's a lot of blood and sorrow leading up to it, but what do you expect?" 5 stars
-Milo James Fowler, author of Immaterial Evidence
"Great action. Great emotion! It’s well-written books like this that are luring me into the urban fantasy genre." 5 stars
