Of Love and Zembores has a paperback edition now!

Of Love and Zembores has a trade paperback available now!

You can find the paperback at Amazon already, and it’ll be in other bookstores in the future (hopefully it won’t take too long).

If you pick up a copy, I hope you like it and thanks! Your support is much appreciated. :-) It means a lot!

ISBN-13: 978-1-79066-830-4

It’s a trade paperback, 5 x 8 inches, and it’s over 300 pages in a nice and readable typeface. Of Love and Zembores is the longest New Canton Republic book I’ve written so far.

This means all my books are caught up in paperback now, with the exception of some of the shortest stuff I’ve written, like The Queen’s Lover (a novelette companion to The King’s Guard and The King’s Gambit), and my short stories and novelettes of The R’H’ani Chronicles (although you can get some of them in paperback in the collection edition of volumes 1–6). And if you’re wondering, a novelette is just a short novella really. Longer than a true short story but shorter than a true novella. Kind of in that middle space where more happens than could happen in a short story but condensed so it doesn’t become a full-blown novel of a book. :-)

New Release! Of Love and Zembores

Of Love and Zembores is finally available! It can be read as a standalone, but I have no idea why you’d want to do that. It’s going to be so much better if you’ve read the other books. :-)

The book is starting to show up in stores now, and I’ll be updating this post later with more links, but right now you can get it at Google Play and Smashwords. (And Amazon and Apple now too, and Barnes & Noble and Kobo.)

About Of Love and Zembores (A New Canton Republic Novel)

Ben’s just trying to make a living the only way he knows how, but nothing’s been going right for him lately, and now he owes a dangerous criminal more than he can pay. He’s only got one thing left to sell that’ll even come close to getting him the zembores he needs to clear his debt.

Vanost is one of the aliens everyone calls monsters, and he wants what Ben’s selling with a desperation he’s never felt before. Vanost isn’t averse to using his power and wealth to get Ben into his bed, but he’ll give Ben a choice. Of course he will. He’s not a real monster.

Ben’s ready to bargain, and Vanost is willing to give up anything to make the deal. There’s just one little problem. Ben’s a liar and a thief who can’t be trusted. But that’s okay, because Vanost is a Yeeru crime lord with a few secrets of his own…

A story of the New Canton Republic, where magic is determined to put an end to the ages old conflict between humans and the aliens who share their world….

This story contains explicit male/male sex, graphic language, and sexual situations that some people might find offensive. Romance for anyone who likes hot alien shapeshifters, fated mates, and a futuristic world where magic is often more trouble than it’s worth!

This is the first book release of the year for me, and frankly I wasn’t even sure I’d have one after the way this year started! But I do, and I’m pretty excited about it. I really love Ben and Vanost and I have an extra special reason for that that I’m not going to tell. ;D But I bet if you read it, you’ll be able to tell me why.

And holy crap, but I just realized this is my longest monster book ever! I mean, not my longest book ever because that honor goes to Mason’s Regret, my last book, but this is my longest New Canton Republic book.

If you buy a copy and read this one, I really hope you enjoy it! :-) I am super happy with it, to be honest, and I really hope it’s not just because I’m thrilled to have written a book this year. ;-)

The main book page for Of Love and Zembores is the best place to check for up to date links. I will be adding to them when I can.

And truly, if you’ve stuck with me this long, I am SO appreciative!

Of Monsters and Love Is Available!

Not much else to say! :)

Of Monsters and Love is finally live in several ebook stores and is on the way to several others. :D I’m so happy to finally have this out there! I’m also really sorry I’m not better at estimating release dates! Everyone who has had patience with me: thank you from the bottom of my heart!

As usual, the most up-to-date list of links to the book will be on the book’s page, but here are those that are already working.

Of Monsters and Love (New Canton Republic, #5)Of Monsters and Love (A New Canton Republic Novel)

Rafe doesn’t have much respect for magic, not when the only people who seem to have enough of it to matter are either out to get him or want to use him and his hard-learned skills for their own profit.

But Rafe has a problem: he’s made a friend he can’t get rid of—a massive oceandog with wicked sharp teeth and a jealous streak—and the tiny bit of pheromonal magic Rafe’s never had to learn to control is starting to get the best of him.

Something’s wrong, and he doesn’t know what it is—and he sure doesn’t know how to fix it.

But his new friend knows… and that’s all it’s going to take to change Rafe’s life forever. Because monsters don’t always hide under the bed. Sometimes they’re a man’s best friend…

Of Monsters and Love is a new story set in the New Canton Republic, where magic is determined to put an end to the ages old conflict between humans and the aliens who share their world…

While I’ve got your eyeballs, let me say Gay for Alex is still coming this month, as long as nothing crazy happens. ;) That’s one book that did not go the way I thought it would. I set out to write something really light and humorous (like the New Canton books) and ended up with something much more drama-y (like the Wolves’ Heat books)! I think. Maybe I’m not the best judge. Still, I really like the story and the way it’s turned out. So anyone waiting for that one—I did not forget about it, and it’s finally, actually, really just about here. :D

I feel like I’m forgetting something important, but holy crap, I’m tired, so I’m just going to leave it there until I have some more links to update in the morning.

New Release! The King’s Gambit

I have a new release this week. The King’s Gambit is finally available! It’s been awhile since I released anything in the world of Hend & Yurt but I was so glad to revisit it. I really like this book. It turned out to be so fun!

The King’s Gambit is available at all the usual places: Amazon | All Romance | Barnes and Noble | Google Play | Kobo |Smashwords | Amazon UK and more coming soon.

The King's Gambit (A Novel of Fantasy and Romance)

Nearly a year has passed since Leon married and became King. The blood heir has finally arrived and the Birth Feast is only days away. Royal visitors have come from neighboring kingdoms far and wide to coo over baby Yames—and stir up as much discord as possible.

Leon’s lover Geran, the King’s Guard, has his hands full overseeing palace security, but that hasn’t stopped Geran from making it clear there’s something he wants from Leon, and soon—something Leon hasn’t been able to give him.

When it turns out one of the royal visitors has a past with Geran, Leon has more to worry about than a little palace intrigue. But soon it becomes clear that a little palace intrigue might be a whole lot of trouble for Leon and Geran both.

The King’s Gambit is a lighthearted story about magic, royalty, gay romance, a marriage of convenience, mystery, adventure, and palace intrigue. And there’s sex. Because I don’t know that I could write a book without it. ;) Don’t really want to try. :D

All the details are on the book’s main page.

Of Mating and Monsters (New Canton Republic #2)

Raymond is a monster of the human kind, driven mad by his magic, and it seems nothing can save him from his fate…

Then Raymond meets Dominay.

Dominay is one of the alien race the humans call monsters. Magic has brought the mating back to the monsters after thousands of years. But the mating is dangerous and madness is only one of the possible side-effects…

As usual, this story contains explicit sex and graphic language. Men have sex. Monstrous sex. Fabulous sex. Okay, lol, maybe that’s just wishful thinking, but I tried to make it good for them… Anyway, it’s romance for anyone who likes hot male/male loving, has a thing for mating (I do!), and loves the idea of a world with magic!
