“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.

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

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! :)

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. ;-)

“Claw,” the Newest After the Heat Story, Is Up!

I’ve put up another story in my ongoing collection of Wolves’ Heat stories (After the Heat: Wolves’ Heat Stories)! You can read it now from me at Laterpress (see below if you want more details).

Will’s Hope Is Now Available in Paperback!

The trade paperback edition of Will’s Hope is now available at Amazon! (More links are available on the Will’s Hope book page. Check them out if you need a link to a different retailer.)

The book is a 5 x 8 inch trade paperback and 496 pages. It’s a monster. ;-)

At this moment in time, I’m really wishing I hadn’t imagined all my books would be about the same length as Ian’s Choice and set them up to publish as 5 x 8 paperbacks. If the books keep going long, I might have to republish in a larger book format, like a 5.5 x 8.5 or a 9 x 6.

If you’re a paperback purchaser, would it disappoint you to have the newer books in a different size?

Anyway, let me know in the comments if you care one way or the other. It’ll make it a little easier for me to decide what I’m going to do with longer books in the future. :D

New Release! Will’s Hope

Whew! It’s so nice to announce that Will’s Hope is available! It went live yesterday, and I’m really hoping I’m not the only one who loves this one. :)

Amazon | Apple | Barnes & Noble | Google Play | Kobo | Smashwords | Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.ca | Amazon.com.au … and more.

Will's Hope bookcover

Here’s the description!

Will knows who he is, even if he doesn’t remember how or why he ended up on the run with one of the aliens everybody calls “wolves.”

He knows the wolves were welcomed to Earth with few reservations and shared technology and knowledge freely—until their first heat season revealed the dark truth about their attraction to human scent, triggering uncontrolled sexual aggression and violence, and changing the world as he knew it forever. He knows the wolves rule the American Protectorate, a place where they roam freely and claim humans for mates.

Will knows he has a past—and he knows something’s wrong, that his life isn’t what it should be—but he has no way to know that his past is about to come for him, and it’s going to be a fight to the death for his soul…

Book 9 in the Wolves’ Heat series.

These books really are best read as a series, in order, but they are stand alone stories if you don’t mind figuring things out from context. :D

For good or ill, this is my longest book ever! Whew. I don’t even know what happened, but that’s just what the story took. :D I loved writing this book, and I love the result. I hope you like it. I can’t say I’ll be writing anything this long again, but I can’t say I won’t either, because I write what needs to be written and that’s just the way it happens for me. :D

Lots of explicit sex and language in this book, and men that give as good as they get! :D

If you pick up a copy of this book, thank you so much! And thank you for taking the time to read my stories! I love sharing them with you.

Mason’s Regret is now available in paperback!

Mason's Regret (Wolves' Heat, book 8) Book Cover

Mason’s Regret is now available as a trade paperback! I meant for this one to come out in print much, much earlier this year, but… it didn’t. Here it is now instead!

You can find the paperback at Amazon already, and hopefully it won’t be long before it’s available at other online bookstores too. :-)

Hey, I’m just glad I got Mason’s book out in paperback before Will’s Hope comes out! :D

ISBN-13: 978-1-9834-4521-7

The trade paperback is 5 x 8 inches and over 400 pages in a readable typeface. The look inside should be available soon.

If you pick up a copy, thank you so much! I really hope you like it.

New Release! Mason’s Regret

Mason’s Regret is my latest book! It’s starting to show up in stores now, and I’ll be updating this post as soon as I’m confident it’s available in a few more places, but YAY! I’m so f*cking excited I can’t stand it.

I love this book! (I love them all, I swear, but this one is definitely right up there at the top.) If you pick up a copy and read this one, I seriously hope you love it, too.

And oh my God, this one is long. It’s my longest book ever, actually. So, enjoy. :-)

Mason’s Regret (A Wolves’ Heat Novel)

Once every three years, humans become sexual prey to a species that has no control over the urge to mate because of a devastating attraction to human scent.

It’s been three years since Mason and his twin brother were caught inside the American Protectorate and held as prisoners by the aliens everyone calls “wolves.” Mason’s brother hasn’t been the same since, and neither has Mason.

Now heat season has come again, and for reasons Mason doesn’t understand, his brother has gone back into the protectorate—and he needs Mason’s help.

Mason’s past is full of mistakes, but leaving his brother to deal with trouble alone isn’t one he’s going to make again—no matter the cost. But when wolves start howling nearby, there’s only one sane thing to do: run.

Except the only path to safety is through a terrifying alpha wolf who wants to claim Mason as his mate…

Book 8 in the Wolves’ Heat series.

Romance for anyone who likes hot male/male loving, alien mates, and a strong dose of alpha romance!
