I Haz Internet Withdrawal

There's nothing quite like recovering from surgery, stuck in bed and offline. You find yourself contemplating the oddest things. Like if the wallpaper trim in the corner of your bedroom is peeling and how much tug it would take to pull it all down.

Or when they take the gauze off your eyes, if the doctor and nurses will all have snouts. I admit, that one kinda worried me.  I saw that episode of The Twillight Zone about fifty times growing up. Eeps!

The good news is I haven't seen a snout yet. The bad news is I have had the worst itchy feeling and because it's on the inside, I know rubbing or scratching around my eyes won't help make it go away.

On the plus side, I'm ready for Halloween. So what if I'm nine months too early. Not everyone can rock the goth look so well, and without make-up!

But the absolute worst is not being able to get on my computer and go online. Yes, I am sneaking on here now and will be in big trouble if I'm caught. I'm counting on ya'll not to tell on me. ;-)

Until next time,

Brought together by art, but does falling in love come at a price…or is it the ultimate masterpiece?

Art was not only a passion of Machiko Barrett, but also a destiny- a way of life she has known since her talent was discovered at 3-years-old. Caught in a turbulent storm of celebrity, scandal, and corruption, she disappeared from the art world only to re-emerge 15 years later. Her sheltered existence is disrupted when she is lured back to her one true passion: painting.

While she struggles to discover her own identity through her art, she encounters a man who opens her eyes to the art of sensuality, and awakens the woman buried deep inside the broken girl.

One of the most sensual books I've ever read! A must for romance fans!

Gothic Urban Fantasy

Sacrifice is a choice…

With the ring of sorrows still missing, and the covenant between othernaturals and mortals broken, Chrysabelle and Malkolm’s problems are just beginning. Chrysabelle still owes Malkolm for his help, but fulfilling that debt means returning to Corvinestri, the hidden vampire city neither of them is welcome in.

The discovery that Chrysabelle has a brother could mean reneging on her promise to Malkolm, something that might make him angry enough to loose the beast living inside him. And fulfilling her vow could prove devastating for Chrysabelle — especially when you throw in power hungry witches, dead fringe vampires, and the Kubai Mata.

St. Martin's Minotaur
Available March 14th, 2012
First book in a brand new series!

She faked her death to escape life as an assassin. But now her enemies have tracked her down, and this time they want her to stay dead.

Anya Danielovich was a highly-trained killing machine in her former life. But that was a long time ago. Today she's just Anna Smith - a single, thirtysomething woman living in San Francisco with an undemanding day job, a loving, if dim-witted, dog, and a simple desire to lead a simple better life. But she's still haunted by her past - the people she killed, the mentor she betrayed, the woman she was. She's taken care to cover her tracks, but she's beginning to feel like she's being watched...

Nick Dade is a hired gunman, the best of the best. He's read Anya's file inside-out and, after weeks of surveillance, he's ready to pull the trigger...until someone else beats him to the punch. With his agenda shattered, Nick suddenly finds himself thrown together with the woman he's been sent to eliminate. Who is she really? Who hired the second hit? And who can he trust? Together Nick and Anna find themselves embroiled in a web of deceit and desire as an unknown enemy - one with dangerous ties to Anna's former life, and a present-day political assassination - closes in. To unravel the truth, Anna must face her past even if that means risking both Dade's life and her own...for good this time.
