Yeah, all right, Jev said she was looking for adventure, but she meant the garden variety, like stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. She didn’t mean handsome-as-sin Liam O’Reilly showing with word that the worst organization of fae they’d ever dealt with was on the rise again. She definitely didn’t mean anything to do with Liam O’Reilly–traitor, asshole, and the absolute last person she wanted to work with.
Of course, her life doesn’t tend to give her those kind of choices. So it’s adventure, cliffhanging variety, and the gorgeous asshole. Jev tells herself it’s just work, a mission like any other, but the longer she works with Liam, the more the fire between them burns, turning from rage and irritation into something primal. And as she gets to know the real Liam O’Reilly behind the charming smiles and sexy lines, he becomes so much deadlier. Because the protective, self-sacrificing man underneath his facade is just the sort she could fall for.

What story I’m working on: Slowed down a bunch this week due to coming home from Steampunk World’s Fair and having to get back into the writing groove. I hit 15k with the Cupid’s Cafe story where I’m scrambling to figure out where they’re heading before the next big plot point comes up.
What I’m editing/marketing: Threw myself fully into editing Future King, which has been super fun even if the edits are slow going. I’m going to practice some patience on this one and make sure it’s as polished as possible before I submit though. Plus, in the span of a week, I managed to get four rounds of content edits exchanged with my editor, meaning Waking for Winter is off to lines!

Line of the week:
The word said aloud made him cringe, from the thousands of confessions he heard at the meetings to the memories tied along with it—of the scent of vomit and piss in a rotten alleyway, of how every muscle in his body ached so much he thought he’d never move again, and of the deep depression that saturated his bones in the aftermath, so strong he wanted to die.
Come meet local authors over at Downingtown Library and learn about the process at a roundtable discussion with them!
