Tuesday Blue Plate Special - Heart of The Sea

My good friend Sela Carsen has an awesome book out today, entitled Heart Of The Sea.

You know what sucks?

Meriel Byrne became a selkie – a shapeshifting seal – just because Great Granny Whoever dumped some loser a few generations ago.

What also sucks? 

Ronan Burbank, ex-billionaire and ex-boss, was blamed for her disappearance and became a recluse with an attitude problem.

How to make things not suck? 

When Meriel saves a sailor in trouble, she and Ronan get another chance to find real magic together. All they have to do is defeat an ancient curse with love’s sacrifice.

Now that would make for a very happy ending…if Meriel can pull it off.

This is a 21K fantasy romance novella featuring shapeshifting seals who are sick of sushi. (Say that three times fast.)

NaNoWriMo I Can't Quit You.

Every time I participate, I tell myself I will finish NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and every year I fall short. Something always comes up without fail, to derail me. This year I set a goal once more and told myself it was my year, my time to win the dang thing by finishing my project. And while I feel I got off to a good start, I've had events happen outside my control and have missed the last 3 timed writing sessions I planned to attend.

I may still finish, but with the holidays looming, I'm less than sure it'll actually happen. November is a horrible month to pick for a month long project. I kind of think it should be changed to January or February or even March. Because there are just too many holidays toward the end of the year and most of us are simply too busy and distracted to focus.

What do you think? If you had a say, would you change NaNoWriMo to a different month, and which month would you pick?

Hide your virgins...AGAIN! The original Bad Boys are BACK and they're hotter than ever!

These are not your mother's Vikings. Seven biker, shifter, sci-fi and paranormal Viking erotic romances: modern, sexy versions of the original alpha male bad boy heroes

Viking Claimed by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Kate Pearce.  

Awakening from four thousand years encased in ice in an alien world is not how Viking warrior Aki Bloodaxe imagined his life would be. His twin Einarr is his only contact with his old world. Can Aki come to terms with his new existence, find bonded mates to help him survive, and learn that the power of love is beyond the limits of time? 

Bound by the Viking by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Anne Marsh

Being a werewolf's mate sucks, but Bera doesn't have a choice--until a big, brutish, and thoroughly pissed-off Viking crashes into her cave and rescues her. He may be hot and their chemistry off-the-charts good, but she's done with domination games and alpha males. 

Colden isn't a nice guy--and he likes it that way. His rules are simple. Hit hard, fight mean, and defend what's his. But when the Viking berserker rescues a sexy little werewolf and her pack names Colden as her new mate, the rules change. She wants to bargain for her freedom. He wants to keep her. Forever. 

Viking Desire by Crystal Jordan

Viking god of thunder and bear-shifter Thor has been married to earth goddess Sif for millennia, but tragedy and betrayal tore them apart long ago. Now husband and wife in name only, they avoid each other as often as possible. 

Too bad they're still in love--though they'd never admit it. 

But ancient prophecies are beginning to turn against them, leaving them no more room for misgivings. The apocalypse is coming, and unless they work together, they don't stand a chance against their enemies. 

Can they learn to trust again, or will the end of the world consume them both? 

Viking's Pride by Holley Trent

When Will Valle returns to the Viking community of Norseton, he not only offers black sheep Erin Petersen the possibility of a exciting job in spite of her weak psychic gifts, but a chance to explore the world outside the isolated community. In the midst of the sexual awakening her brooding geek ignites, Erin learns that her "weirdness" might exist for a sinister reason. She's prepared to confront it with Will's help, but the revelations they uncover might shake the Afótama clan to its core. 

The Wild Fen by Dayna Hart

Magic binds Fen to protect Thora, the very sexy daughter of a god who has no idea who her father is or the danger she's in. Magic does not account for how damned much he wants her in his bed--or anywhere else he can have her. 

Thora absolutely should not get involved with her boss's brother. But when he's assigned as her bodyguard, she can't avoid--or resist--him. Trusting him isn't part of the bargain. 

But when she comes into her powers, trusting him might be the only way to save them both. 

A Most Wanted Viking by Sela Carsen

A spy and a werewolf walk into a firefight... 

Andrew Wyatt thinks all he has to do is bring a scientist back into the fold. He doesn't count on a sizzling hot alien wolf shifter getting in his way, and getting under his skin. 

The last thing Ule tärEinar needs is a tall blond spy interfering with her life. She may not trust Andrew, but that doesn't stop the sparks from flying around them. 

Once they do learn to trust, they'll need each other to survive an invasion that could draw their two allied cultures into a war neither can afford.

A Viking's Bride by NYT and USA Today bestselling author Zoe York.

When Aldric Gunter shows up and offers Navena Johnson an easy way off the prison planet she's stuck on, the answer should be an easy yes. But when the next thing she needs to say is "I do", the choice gets more complicated, because the Viking warrior wants a high price for the marriage of convenience--he wants her heart.
