Discord’s Desire #1: Captivating Melody
Discord’s Desire #2: Hypnotizing Beat
If you’ve been waiting for book two in the Discord’s Desire series, you’re in luck! Hypnotizing Beat just got contracted with Evernight Publishing! The projected release date is in April 🙂
Danica Maslanka is a survivalist at heart, and after the way she screwed over the guys of Discord’s Desire in their time of need, Trevor Arceneaux wants nothing to do with her. Except when their tour brings them to Sin City and they run into Danica once more, he can’t get the leannan sidhe off his mind.
She’s in dire straits, hunted by the same man who enslaved Trevor for most of his life. He doesn’t trust her for a heartbeat, but he also can’t turn away someone in such a similar circumstance as his own. As their path leads them closer to a confrontation against his former owner, Trevor’s loathing for Danica strips away until he finds himself falling for the tough, independent woman. Danica betrayed them once, but as something real blossoms between them, if she backstabs them this time, his trust will be shattered for good.

What story I’m currently working on:
Slowly getting back into the swing of things, but for good reason. Even still, I got some wordage in on Hypnotizing Beat, and I’m thinking I may try to ride this book out to its conclusion rather than sidestepping back to shifter land. As much as I love my shifters, the rockstar fae boys need some love too. Besides, the more I get back into the swing of things with Discord’s Desire, the more I remember the characters and feel of the book.
What I’m editing/marketing:
I leapt way far ahead with The Lies We Weave, finishing my rewrite, as well as the added scenes I needed to write in. I thought it would take forever, but it just took a couple super intense days of work. And I’m not going to lie, I felt iffy about this book before, but now I’m smitten. The dialogue leaps off the page, the characters are interesting, and the story resonates. Here’s to hoping. And as for new releases, you can look forward to Bustles and Bells later in the year, and Forged Alliances will actually go up for pre-order at the end of November!

Teaser of the week:
Line of the week:
The moment she stepped into Kink and Candy, the AC slapped her in the face and she liked it. At once, the sweat started drying like paste across her skin, a fierce reminder to future Danica that a shower was essential tonight. Melrose stalked through the maze of stacked chairs and tables across the floor, heading towards the stage. The woman moved with preternatural grace, but it was anyone’s guess as to why a water nymph would take up residence in the desert. Regardless, Melrose ran a tight ship, and Danica trusted her in the business capacity—which is where she placed everyone.
All except one person.
Lenora hopped off the stage she’d been perched upon and raced over to her, a hurricane in heels.
Today we’re welcoming Rachell Nichole for Music Monday to celebrate her book A Love Affair in Las Vegas!
Give Your Heart a Break – Demi Lovato
So this is kind of the perfect song for both Dawn and Barnaby. Neither of them goes to Vegas looking for love, yet that’s exactly what they find. For Dawn, she’s terrified to let a man into her life, because she’s always been on her own, and she’s a single mom after a one-night stand in college, so the last thing she thinks she wants is love. For Barnaby, he’s been burned so badly by his past relationship that he is scared to love again, and it’s so hard for him to trust Dawn.
Love So Soft – Kelly Clarkson –
First, I picked this song because I am obsessed with it, and must have listened to it at least a dozen times while I was writing this book. I love the hook and the way this song blends together. It’s also really perfect for this book because it’s all about loving softly and letting someone in, which is what these two are all about. The love scenes in the book are not soft, or gentle, in fact, they have an entire discussion about hard loving. But the emotional lovin’ is really soft.
Pony – Ginuwine
This is the ultimate get-down nasty song, and I love it. Whenever I’m stuck with the heat in the book or I need sexperation (that’s sexy inspiration, for those of you not inside my head), this is the song that I go to. I’d like to think it inspired at least one of the love scenes in this book. It’s just so sultry and deep and I mean, you can’t go wrong with the lyrics of “Just once, if I had the chance, the things that I would do to you…” In fact, there’s a really similar line to that in the book!

Dawn Jansen has only ever wanted one thing: to provide a life for her daughter in New York City, away from the small-town minds of her family and her upbringing. She has fought hard to finally make it to manager at the Hauteman hotel, and one of her first duties is to attend a conference at the Marietta Las Vegas to learn all she can about running the show. But when she arrives in Las Vegas, her plans to learn as much as she can on a professional level, turns into learning far more about herself than her job. She may get a second-chance at this whole love thing after all.
Barnaby “Barney” Garrison has always had one goal in life: to help people. He’s found his calling as manager of the Marietta Times Square, and since his past failed relationship, has focused all of his energy on being the best manager he can be. This year, that means helping to run the Marietta Hotels second annual Hoteliers’ Conference in Vegas. But as soon as he notices Dawn in the crowd, his focus instantly splits, his desires for her swift and fierce. When he realizes the attraction is mutual, he doesn’t waste any time seducing her to his bed. But when he suspects she’s hiding something from him, he worries that maybe he’s just destined to attract two-timing women to his life.
Can what began as a fling in Vegas turn into something more once they’re home in New York? Or does what happen in Vegas truly stay in Vegas?
Delivering board games with heart and snark.
