Forged Redemption Release Day!

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.

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.

Capturered Memories Ebook

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.
