September is going out with a bang. Thunder and Roses has been accepted for publication to Loose-Id. This was the monumental novel I wrote with Ditter Kellen during the first half of the year. I’m super excited as Loose-Id houses so many of my favorite authors (over half my blogroll links are to authors writing for them).
We’re tentatively scheduled for a January release, but we’ll see. 🙂 More information to come as it rolls in. Until then…I’d have to say my third quarter was THE most amazing of my career, so far.
If T&R manages to release before the year’s end, I’ll officially dub 2013 the year of Thunder and Roses. It represents not only the book, but the roller coaster insanity of this year as well.
Unofficial (and lengthy) Blurb:
Thunder and Roses
Note: This isn’t the actual coverart
She’s a leopard shifter living deep undercover until one mistake shatters her world. He is a hunter like no other, a wolf born to chase down those who break shifter law.
Tonya knows it’s time for a decade long conspiracy to come to a head, but no one can know who she really is. Her feral nature and instinctive mistrust have kept her alive for the past five years of deep cover. When her only choice is to run or face death, she runs. What she doesn’t count on is Dakota Thunder, a Council bounty hunter who never misses a target. Tonya is running out of time, and the only man she can trust is the last man who should ever believe her.
Dakota Thunder is no stranger to betrayal. From his childhood hell to the death of his sister, he knows exactly what his kind are capable of. No one escapes his justice. What should have been a routine bounty pick up drops Dakota in the middle of a deadly blood feud involving shifter trafficking, extortion, and murder revolving around one wise-cracking beautiful woman of leopard royalty. She gets under his skin, digging her claws into his heart and reminding him of things he’d rather not remember.
He’d planned for everything except Tonya and the evidence that could bring down one of the most powerful organizations in their world. Nothing could have prepared them for their explosive attraction or the depths at which a madman would fall in order to destroy everything they love.
With nowhere to turn, and the net growing tighter, they’ll have to trust in one another to survive.
Thank you to all the readers of this blog and my books. You guys make this possible. I can’t wait til you read this book. Hugs!
