Of Coppers and Cracksmen is Under Contract!

steampunk-3006650_1920

The next book in the Whitfield Files has been signed, a cracking fun paranormal steampunk romance romp through Victorian London!

Keep tabs as we get closer to the April 2020 release!

When Ellie Whitfield’s accused for a crime she didn’t commit (though she’s committed many), only one man believes her—the unlikeliest as well—Detective Bernard Taylor. He’s a handsome chap, but lawmen were never her type. At least, until now.

Bernard Taylor’s been hunting down the Butcher of Broad Street, and though Ellie Whitfield’s led the coppers on a merry chase through Islington too many times, the woman’s no cold-blooded murderer. As they work together, he can’t help but be charmed by the vivacious woman, and before long, mere heated glances turn into something explosive.

However, the closer they get to solving the murder, the deeper the serial killer draws them—one misstep and they might be his next victims.

New projects written:

I’ve got the starts to two new series in progress, both A Thief’s Crusade (Outlaws #1) and Saving Throw (Dungeons and Dating #1) which I’m trying to find homes for. I’m hoping for some good news in the new year with both of those.

There were a LOT of complications this year. In all honesty, it burned me out of publishing a bit, and I’m taking a bit of a step back. I’ll continue to write the series I’ve started, but I’m not pushing nearly as hard because of how much this year really wrecked me.

There was a complication with the new Eros Tales series I started, and while I’m going to be writing the entire series over the next few years, the entire thing won’t come out until 2024 when I’m planning on doing a rapid release. Pomegranate’s Kiss, #2 in the series is already written and I’m planning on writing #3 out of 5 next year. I’m also going to be midway through Discord’s Desire #3, Tempting Ballad, which I’m hoping will come out next year. This year was a lot of catch up, considering most of the novels and novellas that came out were re-releases of stories that were previously with other publishers.

Despite all of the pitfalls this year, I’m going to continue on, just at a bit of a slower pace. Regardless, I am so grateful for all of you wonderful readers and for the gift of my publishers believing in me enough to release my stories out into the world.

Color of a Soul is out in Audio Book!

Color of a Soul 6x9 FINAL

If you dig audio book, check out Shawn Milo’s narration for Color of a Soul!

Kelsey’s running out of time. The undine spent these past years at Niagara-on-the-Lake searching for a soul mate, but time and time again, her dates disappoint, and she’s down to days remaining before she has to return to the Otherworld.

Jason’s hit rock bottom. His fiancée left him, he lost his job, and he arrives in Niagara-on-the-Lake for a non-refundable vacation meant for two. The week is looking to be a nightmare…at least, until he meets Kelsey. The attraction is instant – explosive, even – but unless the connection between them is the real deal, in mere days, Kelsey will be gone from this realm for good.

Pre-Order Scrying for Summer!

ScryingForSummer

Pre-order Scrying for Summer now!

Jev was looking for an adventure, however she wanted the usual variety of stomping out nasty fae in the city as an enforcer of the Philly Coven. Instead, handsome-as-sin Liam O’Reilly shows up on her doorstep dropping news of the worst organization of fae they’d dealt with on the rise again. Except, he’s a traitor, an asshole, and the absolute last person she wants to work with.

However, the longer they work together, 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 the facade is just the sort she could fall for.

Forged Redemption Release Day!

978-1-913186-65-4_ForgedRedemption1500X2400

With the end of the series hitting the shelves today, I wanted to take a little time and talk about the Tribal Spirits series.

This series had a rocky start–I tried it at a bunch of places and even faced some rejections because the female alpha heroine in the first book was ‘too strong.’ Funny enough, that’s what most readers liked about her the most. Then I placed it at Loose Id and while the second book was on submission at Loose Id, I found out they were closing doors.

That led me to Totally Bound Publishing, a place that has been an absolute joy to work with. They’re innovative, cooperative, and constantly put out quality final products. So, because I had the second ready to go, the pace on this series grew faster and faster. I had already started book three, so I plunged right into working on it, and then book four, and earlier this year, the very book that’s coming out today. The series started out a bit more lighthearted and snarky, and as is my norm (at least if the Coven Chronicles are any indication), the issues grew heavier with the ensuing books.

That leads me to Drew and Ally’s book. Most of the issues my characters dealt with in other books were things I had to research and imagine, however this one was an issue I’m well versed in–infertility. So often I’ve seen infertility utilized as a plot device in books, where the heroine can’t conceive, but by the end of the book, BAM, she magically can. While everyone going through it hopes for that outcome, it’s not always possible, and I wanted to write a couple who lived with the reality that sometimes life isn’t so forgiving, but you create your own family in whatever form that takes.

This book is dedicated to everyone who’s either dealt with or is still dealing with infertility. I want our voices heard too, our stories out there. So, with that, I hope you enjoy the final book in the Tribal Spirits series. It’s been a wild ride–I’ve learned a lot, laughed a lot, and cried a lot writing this series and these characters, and I’m going to miss them.

Grab Forged Redemption here!

The sparks of Ally and Drew’s old relationship ignite, but their broken pasts and a final fight against Mackey Kendricks threaten any hope of a future.

After Drew fell in with the Landsliders and destroyed his former pack, forgiveness isn’t something he deserves. However, no matter how hard the Tribe has tried, Mackey Kendricks can’t be stopped. So when they narrow down the vicinity of the monster’s hidden lair, the Tribe calls upon him again, this time for one of the most dangerous hunts—a recon mission to find the exact location.

However, when his former flame Ally signs on as the other member of the team, their attempts at avoiding each other crumble to the ground. No matter how hard they both try and no matter how many times they’ve walked away, the flame has never extinguished between them. This time, Drew’s fought for his redemption, changed for the better, and the relationship that blooms between them, for once, might stand a chance.

All they have to do is survive the fight against the biggest, baddest shifter on the East Coast.

What story I’m currently working on:

I didn’t write anything this week and I’m not even sorry. Come on, I did like a month’s worth of words last week alone! Plus, I had two back to back releases, AND a whole lot of editing to do. But, next on my agenda will probably be Tempting Ballad, Renn and Kincaid’s book, thoooough I’m not going to lie, I have a certain Dukas sibling’s book percolating in the back of my brain for the next Eros Tales book!

What I’m editing/marketing:

I’ve been massively diving into edits on A Thief’s Crusade, and I’m really hoping to do a good job on this one. I love Grif Blackmore and the Outlaws so much, and the whole found family thing always tugs at my heart strings. I’m also coming off of the high of two releases in one week with first, Taking Root, the first book in the Eros Tales series, and then Hunting for Spring‘s re-release, the first book in the Philadelphia Coven Chronicles series!

Line of the week:

Liz’s phone began to buzz, and she gave Ky the nudge off her lap. He let out a mix between a whine and a groan while she made her way closer to the front of the RV.

“Poor baby,” Jett called over to him. “You can come sit in my lap.”

Renn flashed a grin. “You can sit in mine and come.” Jett let out an annoyed noise while Ky’s eyes crinkled with amusement. He let out a bark of a laugh.

Taking Root Release Day!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

The Eros Tales series is a combination of my love for Greek myths and family series. Not only is each book in the series based on a different Greek myth, but also features a different member of the Dukas family. I just finished writing book two, and I’m really hoping you all will love it as much as I did.

Grab your copy of the start of the series HERE!

I’ve been burned by my ex-fiancée and sentenced myself to long shifts at the hospital ever since. There’s no way I’d give anyone else the opportunity to break my heart again.

Until chance brings me face to face with the girl from my past.

Danielle is still as beautiful as ever, and seeing her reminds me of how I felt about her—how I still feel about her.

But she’s changed. I can see it when I look into her eyes. It’s like she’s no longer living, but merely existing. An enigma laden with secrets from her past—secrets that are forcing her to run from me. Only this time, I won’t let her get away so easily.

I’m determined to peel away every layer of secrets she carries around her, and to protect her from whatever it is that’s causing her to run.

Danielle Reynolds will not slip through my fingers again.

This time…she stays.
