Makenna and Rhys are back, and the stakes are higher than ever. Their world is about to go up in flames. Here’s a little taste of the story…

 

Sometimes, being queen royally sucks.
Makenna has embraced her true self and taken her rightful place as Alpha at Rhys’s side. But learning how to live as mates in the midst of a raging war proves more difficult than anything she’s faced. That is, until the goddess stretches fully awake, taking control and burning everyone in her path.
But that fiery power may come in handy to battle Kylian’s diabolical plans. Using dark magic that shouldn’t be possible, he’s torn a hole in the fabric of reality and put their kingdom in more danger than ever.
As Makenna fights the rising power within, her entire world crashes down around her. Secrets are revealed and hearts broken when an unlikely ally presents them with an impossible choice to end the war. When the truth comes to light, it will challenge everything they believe. Leaving them to face an agony they could never have imagined.
The bonds of family and pack are tested to their limits. Nothing is what it seems, and loyalty is strained to the breaking point. Can Rhys and Makenna hold on to each other and solidify their bond while reclaiming their throne? Or will the truth be more devastating than lies, tearing them apart forever? 

*This book contains hot wolf shifters, a fierce warrior goddess, and a hero and heroine who set the page on fire. Mature content suitable only for those 18 and up.*

 

You can grab your copy on Amazon,

Resilience is here!

Resilience 3D (1)

I cannot even explain how excited I am about this latest installment of TRWC!

Like all of TRWC, this one has been a labor of love. I think out of all of the books in this series, this was the toughest to write, but also my favorite. I put a lot of myself and my past into this series, laying my guts on the page with every word I write. Never has that been more true than in Resilience.

I completely lay myself bare in this story, giving you an inside look into some of the deepest hurts and darkest times of my life through Liz. It’s not pretty. It’s not soothing. It may even be difficult to read for some.

But it’s honest, real, and as raw as you can get. It is quite literally my guts on these pages.

Here’s a peak into that world.

 

~The fiercest warriors emerge from the most brutal storms.~

Liz and Ryland Vaughn have fought hard to survive every threat that’s risen against them. But nothing they’ve faced compares to the battle to come.

As they settle in to married life, all seems perfect and quiet. Too quiet. Being a warrior doesn’t allow for peace.

Then one vicious moment throws their world into upheaval and rips their hearts to shreds.

Wanting to get away from it all, they accept a mission to New Orleans to assist fellow warriors. Ryland hopes the time away will repair the rift between them, but the chasm only widens as they face an enemy so subtly horrific, they don’t even know they’re falling.

As they descend into darkness, Liz’s past once again rears its ugly head.

This time, it takes Ryland along for the ride.

Can Liz and Ryland undo the damage to their marriage and hang on to their faith while completing their mission? Or will they fall to temptation and lose everything they’ve fought so hard for?

Lucifer intro

As I promised, this series keeps getting darker. Resilience doesn’t disappoint in that aspect. And there’s one big reason.

 

Lucifer has arrived in the TRWC world.

 

Resilience_ Playground

 

In the story, we know him as “Dom”, but don’t let the pretty facade fool you. The epitome of evil lurks inside that suave, handsome package. Of course, evil wouldn’t be able to do its job if it wasn’t tempting, right? And “Dom” brings the temptation in spades.

 

Fire and ice Resilience

Not to be upstaged, Tiriana brings the pain with her own special brand of torture.

She’s up to her same old tricks, but this time, she’s pulling out all the stops. She’s going for the win and holding nothing back to get it.

 

 

 

Don’t worry, it’s not all gloom and doom for our favorite warriors! With several new characters, and a brand new setting in New Orleans, there are plenty lighter moments.

And what would a post from me be without some music? Today I’m sharing Liz and Ryland’s song. It’s like it was written just for them. Give it a listen. I dare ya not to cry if you’re already #TeamLizAndRy! ❤

Resilience is Coming!

Resilience, book 3 of the Reluctant Warrior Chronicles, is almost here! It releases on June 14, and today I have the cover for you!

In Resilience, we go even deeper with Liz and Ry, and the story gets so much darker. As promised. How is it darker, you may ask? For one, we get to see more of Liz’s sordid past as she’s drawn back into a world she thought she’d left far behind. Second, a certain character I know some of you have been waiting for finally shows his face.

 

Lucifer makes his appearance. And it’s nothing like you expect!

 

Ok, I’ve kept you in suspense long enough. Check out the cover, then read on for a taste of Resilience!

The Beast Is Awakening

Sleeper logo

 

A throne with no ruler.

A beast stretching awake.

A goddess unleashed.

 

Sleeper is almost here, and today I’m revealing the cover!

 

First, a little look inside the story… Sleeper Let Us Burn

Makenna is a self-proclaimed freak with abilities she can’t control. She’s clawed her way through life, fighting to maintain her sanity. Her lonely existence has only fed the vicious animal within her, one she barely contains and doesn’t understand.

Rhys has prepared since birth to be alpha and king of an ancient race of wolves. Instead, he leads half a fractured clan against a depraved madman. But victory begins to slip through Rhys’s fingers. Only one thing can save them. A single requirement for him to claim the throne:

Bonding with his mate, the one warrior queen born to each generation, the incarnation of a primal warrior goddess who holds more power than any of them can imagine.

When Rhys finds Makenna, he believes the battle has shifted in his favor. He never imagined his heart would want her as much as his body. While Makenna is drawn to Rhys with terrifying intensity, his arrival triggers an acceleration in her abilities, the beast within her growing stronger than ever.

Will discovering the truth give Makenna the peace she craves, or will it ignite a savage escalation in the war, drenching their lives in blood?

 

 

And now what you’ve all been waiting for!

This thing is fire!

Feel free to share! Thank you all so much for your support. I hope you love the new series as much as I do!

 

Because I just can’t seem to do a blog post without a song, how about Rhys and Kenna’s theme? Their chemistry is explosive. There’s nothing tame about their love, so this song is perfect. And don’t worry, there’s plenty of hard bangin’ tracks on the playlist. After all, it’s me. 😉

FinalBernieCover

Nyla, born and raised in the In-Between realm as the princess of the Spiritum Bellatorum, has been betrothed from birth and forced to conceal the true personality within in order to project herself as nothing but the perfect princess she was taught to be.

When her brother betrays their kind, Nyla acquires an unprecedented mission to find and convince him to come home. Teaming up with the Promiscus Guardians to locate her runaway brother in the mortal realm, Nyla is introduced to the resident comedian and self-proclaimed cowboy Guardian, Bernie.

He is everything she wishes she could be outwardly and she’s instantly intrigued by his happy, easy-going nature. But, like Nyla, Bernie is keeping a part of himself tightly locked away.

What will happen when their barriers start to come down? Will they be able to overcome so many obstacles laid out before them, or will their relationship be torn apart before they have a chance to find something deeper?

And as promised, an excerpt!

Holding me underneath my arms, Bernard lifted me into the air with another shout of joy. “Aren’t you just the prettiest gal at the ball!”

He said I was pretty! He actually said it!

Rigid and unable to get my body to react more than it currently was with my hands painfully clutching his shoulders, I gasped and then forgot how to breathe altogether. I was put down before I could get my brain to work properly, swooped up underneath my knees and carried out into the hallway without a breath in between.

Red suffused my body like I’d been immersed in sweltering heat, blushing a violent blood color. Finally, I was able to deliver a swift, unforgiving hit to the overstepping Guardian. The damaging blow my fist dealt to his stomach took Bernard straight to his knees. And a swift second later, my dagger was at his throat the instant his knees hit the floor.

I kept a weapon on my person always. Even in my cute, frilly dress.

“What right do you have—” I started in a low growl.

Bernard leaned forward, coming within inches of my face and baffling me when he pushed his throat into the blade. I instantly retracted my arm so that the dagger didn’t cut into his skin. And when my eyes flicked back up to his face, Bernard was grinning mischievously.

It was downright illicit the look he gave me. It made my heart start up in my chest and pulse thud loudly in my ears as I hesitated with the dagger still gripped firmly in my hand. Bernard took hold of the wrist that held my weapon, caressing the skin he touched with his thumb. Instantly, I dropped the dagger to the floor, the loud clatter echoing off the walls.

“You are mighty pretty in that dress, miss,” he said in a soft, whispery voice. One I hadn’t been prepared to hear from him.

Electricity shot down my spine and my heart skipped a beat. “What…?”

“You’re not being very nice to this lovesick cowboy,” Bernard continued, grasping my wrist tenderly and taking us to our feet.

But after a few breaths, he still hadn’t pull away and I couldn’t move; only listen as his deep, enchanting baritone continued to murmur to me as only a lover would, making my cheeks incredibly hot with each uttered word.

Cover Reveal for Reformation

Reformation teaser

I think I’ve teased and tormented you enough! 

It’s time to finally reveal the truth about the secret project!

I’ve already told you it’s a novelette, and that it’ll be free. There will only be one way to get this story, and that’s by signing up for my newsletter when it debuts in two weeks. I’ll post details on social media and keep you updated!

Now, without further ado, let’s find out what this secret project is all about!

 

Reformation: The Prequel

From the moment they met, the intense connection between Liz Brantley and Ryland Vaughn ignited a fire that quickly raged to an inferno. Their love survived Liz’s revelation that the spirit world was tangible for her. Ryland accepted all of her, even what she saw as her curse.

That bond is tested when evil is no longer content to observe.

Forced to accept a new, confusing reality, Liz must learn to fight the hounds of Hell, or die trying.

But battling the demons within may be the bloodiest struggle of all.

Will Liz and Ryland be able to endure the new challenges of her gift, or will they be casualties of war?

 

And finally…the cover!
