I’m delighted to present my newest Midnight Breed novella, STROKE OF MIDNIGHT. As it often happens, a secondary character pops to life so vividly, I have no choice but to take a closer look and see where it leads me.

In the case of mysterious Jehan, the story led me to an exotic villa oasis and an ancient handfast ritual the prodigal vampire prince cannot refuse. Jehan doesn’t want a mate, but can he resist the call of his blood when he meets beautiful Seraphina?

When I opened Dr. Bombay’s Underwater Tea Shop in Atlanta little did I know my path would lead me to help underprivileged girls in Darjeeling, India. Now I also operate The Learning Tea, a non-profit –started by selling tea and cupcakes –that offers scholarships to these girls who were “aging out” of their Buddhist orphanage, bound for futures on the street. In Tiger Heart, you’ll come with me through the streets of Mumbai, to tiny villages with roadside tea huts, to the Himalayans and you’ll meet the girls of Darjeeling. Who knew this former art student turned roller derby queen (Tekillya Sunrise) would be here to tell you this story?

crosswindsDear Reader,

When Julie Kenner first approached me about participating in Rising Storm, I immediately said yes. Not only would writing for this fun and unique project give me the chance to work with some amazing authors, it would also bring me back to my first love—soap operas—which were the earliest stories that propelled me toward a career in romance.

In Episode 3: Crosswinds, you’ll get to know more about Lacey Salt and how her brother Jacob’s death has changed her, and you’ll also learn how the youngest members of some of the biggest families in Storm are dealing with the tragedy. Oh, and you won’t want to miss the change coming for Ginny in this episode, so be sure to read on.

Crosswinds are blowing through Storm, and everything is changing. Enjoy the breeze because a storm is brewing on the horizon.
