“Scratch”, a New Wolves’ Heat Short Story, Is Available Now!

There’s another new short story in the After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories collection! This one is called “Scratch” and it’s another one for Brendan (and Trey) set early in their life together. You can certainly consider it a follow-up to “Claw”.

Get it from me and read it on Laterpress, or read it on Kindle Vella when it goes live there. :)

Also coming in the next few days are some new episodes of Mage in Love.

If you give the story a try, I hope you like it as much as I do! Happy reading! :D

“Itch” is a New Wolves’ Heat Short Story in After the Heat!

There’s a new short story in the After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories collection! This one is called “Itch” and it’s a follow-up to “Prick”. Get it from me and read it on Laterpress, or read it on Kindle Vella when it goes live there. :)

That’s not all that’s coming this week! I have another completed Wolves’ Heat short story that I’ll be putting into the collection, and new episodes of Mage in Love.

It’s gonna be a busy couple of days for me, and I hope some fun reading for you! :D

I’ll post as things become available.

Anyone waiting on the short story for the New Canton Republic series that I hinted at a while back are finally going to get to see it soon. I’ll probably write more of them, because I really love my New Canton universe! :D

New Mage in Love Episode 20: “Loyalties”!

The story is branching out and picking up steam. :)

Buy from me to read online, or wait just a bit and read the episode on Kindle Vella.

Episode/Chapter 20: “Loyalties”

In Mage in Love, Jihu makes a bargain with crafty (but hot) Gaeru to escape death. One bad decision leads to another and, soon, Jihu has only himself to blame for the trouble that follows…

Cast so far:

  • Jihu – Smuggler? He’s up to something, no doubt! Whatever it is, he seems to be in over his head.
  • Gaeru – Big title and big trouble. What’s he planning? And why is he dragging Jihu into it?
  • Baeo – Jihu’s friend? Definitely not his boyfriend. Definitely more trouble than he’s worth!
  • Daehu – Sex worker who wants to be anywhere but where he is… Is he hiding something?
  • Taeom – Association Militia? Watch your back, Jihu!

Go to the main page for Mage in Love for a list of all the episodes. :)

“Prick” Is Available Now in the After the Heat Collection!

Cover for After the Heat: Wolves' Heat Stories featuring a view of the moon and clouds through a dark, menacing forest

In “Prick,” go back to the time of Mason’s Regret, where Mason’s twin brother, Marcus, shares some of his story with us.

Marcus has always looked out for his twin brother, Mason. Some things never change—and some things have to…

If you want it right now, you can buy from me. Or wait a bit, and read it on Kindle Vella when it goes live on Amazon.

You can always find these links to After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories on the main page for the collection!

This one might get a part 2, but I’m not set on that. So if you want it to have a part 2, definitely find a way to let me know you’re interested. If I think I’m the only person who cares, I might not get around to it. :)

The original story for this title was published as “Claw” (the third story in After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories). The second story for this title was published as Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed’s Long Night). But finally there’s a story for this title that stuck!

That would be this one. It’s not quite “after the heat” in the same sense the previous three stories are, but it is an after the heat story. You’ll see what I mean if you read it. :)

If you do, I hope you enjoy getting to know a little more about Mason’s twin brother, Marcus. I certainly did, and I really enjoyed getting to write it.

Just Released Episodes 18 & 19 of Mage in Love!

Jihu and Gaeru are having an adventure…and they have company!

Chapters, episodes, it’s all the same to me. :D I try to be clear that I’m using the terms interchangeably for this story but just in case, an episode is a chapter and a chapter is an episode. :)

And now Episode 18, “Into the flames” & Episode 19, “Is this a joke?” are available to read!

Buy from me to read online, or wait just a bit and read the episodes on Kindle Vella.

I have to say I really had fun with these chapters. :D

In Mage in Love, Jihu makes a bargain with crafty (but hot) Gaeru to escape death. One bad decision leads to another and, soon, Jihu has only himself to blame for the trouble that follows…

If you buy the chapter bundles from me, you’re essentially getting early access to the story episodes, since Kindle Vella requires the episodes to go through a review process and can take up to 72 hours to go live. Doesn’t usually take quite that long, but it’s definitely not instantaneous. :D

Go to the main page for Mage in Love for a list of all the episodes. :)

Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed’s Long Night) Is a New Wolves’ Heat Short Story!

Book cover image for Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed's Long Night) with trees under a bright sky

Available now direct from me! Coming soon to the usual retailers. :)

This story, I don’t even know where to start. Cam and Rick Play Dirty (a.k.a. Bel and Reed’s Long Night) was supposed to be “Claw” in the After the Heat collection. Then I realized “Prick” was a much better title, so I wrote a different story that ended up being “Claw”, and I’m glad I did, because I really like what I ended up with.

But then this one went longer than I had planned for it to be, by a LOT. It became a story that’s commensurate in length with Devon and Kem Under the Mistletoe (a.k.a. Ian and Craig’s First Fight). It also felt like a different kind of story than those that are in the After the Heat collection, so there was that.

But making it a volume of the Wolves’ Heat Stories meant I needed a new title, because “Prick” is the title that most suits the fourth story in the After the Heat collection! Which also means I needed a new story to go with that title!

Whew.

All that to say, I settled on a title for this one, and I’ve added a cover, and it’s going up this week as an individually published short story in the Wolves’ Heat universe.

“Prick” will also be coming soon to the After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories collection. It’s not the story it was, but it’s the story it was meant to be! :)

Just Released Episode 17 of Mage in Love

Episode (chapter) 17 of Mage in Love is available now to read direct from me and coming soon to Kindle Vella at Amazon!

Episode 17: “Not ready”
Hm. Jihu, is this really the time for that…?

In Mage in Love, Jihu makes a bargain with crafty (but hot) Gaeru to escape death. One bad decision leads to another and, soon, Jihu has only himself to blame for the trouble that follows…

If you can figure out what the title of this chapter means, you’ve got sharp eyes. :D

If you read it, thank you! I hope you’re finding the story as fun as I am. :)

New Collection! The R’H’ani Chronicles Collection 2, Volumes 7–11

The R’H’ani Chronicles have grown from a few stories that I just had to write, to a fairly large set of stories set in New United R’H’ani, Ani’Hain, and the Great Isle of Ani.

Book cover for The R'H'ani Chronicles Collection 2, Volumes 7–11 by Odessa Lynne
This could be Brylan from the second story in this collection, His to Keep, or Tyran from the first story, One to Love! I’ll let you decide. :D

I’ve put the next set of stories into a collection called The R’H’ani Chronicles Collection 2, Volumes 7–11 and you can get it now.

Direct from me | Smashwords | Barnes & Noble | Amazon | Kobo | Google Play | Apple Books

Expect true love, and a lot of sex. These guys are having fun! ;D

For more details and the most current links, see the main book page.

As usual with this series, I really recommend you read these stories in order! So if you haven’t read the first six stories, pick up a copy of The R’H’ani Chronicles Collection 1, Volumes 1–6 and read it first. :)

I had hesitated to make a new collection since the stories have gotten progressively longer and I’ve already put out paperbacks for some of the novellas (and have paperbacks in the works for the others)! But a new collection means I can easily put another group of the novelettes into paperback, so I’ve gone ahead and done it.

The paperback will be ready later in September. The ebook is ready now! :D

Just Released Episode 16 of Mage in Love!

Liam and Eli

I learn something new about these guys every time I sit down to write their stories. :D Why do these guys always surprise me? Also, is it a spoiler to say that Eli’s love interest is not who I expected it to be when I started these two books (Liam’s Trust and Eli’s Promise)!?

Also, look for a sneak peek at one of those love interests in “Prick” when it is published to the After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories collection. I won’t say which guy he is for, because I really don’t want to spoil anything, but you will definitely see a certain someone again. ;-)
