Hammer it Home (Powertools 6) Out Today!

HammerItHome72lgToday’s the day!  The (sort of, maybe) last book of the Powertools series is finally here!  I’m happy and sad having come to enjoy writing these characters so much.  Don’t worry, we’ll be seeing more of the Crew in a future series.  If the hot construction workers were Powertools, their mechanic friends are Hot Rods!

I’m thrilled to say Eli and Alanso, who you’ll meet in this book, are kicking off a new series.  It will start with three books out next year and (hopefully) three the following year.  Each is titled with the restored car the character drives.  First up, King Cobra, then Mustang Sally and third will be Super Nova.  More to come on that soon, or you can check out the post below for a little more.

Okay, but for today’s installment, here’s a little more info:

When times get tough, the tough stage one scorching hot intervention.

Morgan is happy that her best friend Kate is expecting the crew’s littlest member, but helping renovate a room for a nursery is more than she can bear. Baby furniture and pastel paint are a painful reminder that she and Joe can’t—and will never—conceive. There’s no hiding it from the rest of the close-knit crew, either.

True to their unique brand of love, the gang rallies to find a non-traditional solution to alleviate their friends’ suffering. Not with a cold, clinical visit to a sperm donation clinic, but delivering it the old fashioned way. With a healthy dose of searing passion.

But soon after Morgan’s scorching hot night with her husband’s four best friends, an accident threatens the life of one of those men. The challenges that lie ahead will test crew’s powerful bond to the limit—and their long-standing promise to take care of each other through good, bad, and sexy times. Whatever it takes…

Plus the book has already had an awesome review released.  It’s from Alyn at Guilt Pleasure reviews and you can read the whole thing here.  My favorite part is:  “While the stories are short, they always blow me away and leave me wishing I could be part of that little circle even if for one night. Another great chapter in the Powertools saga that left this book addict very satisfied!”

I hope you agree!  Thank you so much for sticking with me through this series and making Powertools a career changing project for me.  I appreciate every single reader who has contributed to their success.

Thank you and happy reading,


Two weeks, two new releases

MistresssMaster72LGIt’s back to back fun around here!  Today, Mistress’s Master, Men in Blue 3, is out in PRINT for the first time.  You can pick up a copy at Amazon, B&N or Samhain among your other favorite hard copy book retailers.

Next up is Hammer it Home, Powertools Book 6, which comes out brand spanking new in ebook next Tuesday.  I hope you enjoy the “final” book in this series and an introduction to some related mechanic friends you’ll be seeing a lot more of in my upcoming related series, Hot Rods!

After these two, Love’s Compass (the print book containing Northern Exposure and Southern Comfort) will be out the first week of September.  Then both the print edition of Eastern Ambitions and the digital version of Where There’s Smoke will be out on 10/2.

HammerItHome72lgWhere There’s Smoke is my contribution to Two To Tango, an anthology featuring Lorelei James and Jess Dee along with myself.  A follow up to Three’s Company, Lorelei’s book features Jon Whitefeather from the original set of stories and Jess’s book is related as well.  Mine is all brand new (because I like to be different!).  Check back soon for more details.

Rounding out 2012 will be the print anthology of the first four Powertools books the first week of November and then Healing Touch, the sequel to Dream Machine, featuring Luke Malone, on December 4th.  Also in there, there will be a special edition print book from Ellora’s Cave available at Romanticon 2012 that will including my very first published book, Picture Perfect, in print for the first time!  It will be available sometime after for general purchase but I’m not sure of the date yet.  So much to look forward to but I’d better get back to work.  Just wait until you see what’s in store for 2013.  WHEW!

Happy Reading!


Compass & Powertools Featured in RT Magazine

Check out this article by RT Magazine.  They’ve listed Northern Exposure as one of their editors recommended reads for 10 Short and Steamy Stories.  Even better, they also selected Morgan’s Surprise, which they honored with the 2011 Best Indie Erotic Romance award at last year’s convention.  Only danger to this article… I found a bunch more books to add to my own reading list!
