New Author’s Blog Hop

Yep, that’s right. I’m participating in the New Author’s Blog Hop going on Nov. 23-30 and even have giveaways! I’ll draw winners from all the visitors leaving comments. Read through this post to see what’s being given away.

First a bit about my Crainesian characters and their stories…

I list my e-books as contemporary first and foremost because they are. Imagine this world of ours but with a humanoid race very much like us (Crainesians) who live among us here on Earth. They have the ability to communicate telepathically, can project visions and share dreams. Can you imagine? Not just phone sex, but dream sex? That’s why they’re also labeled soft scifi and lite paranormal. Talk about cross-genre sizzle! Here’s a bit about each of my three current e-books.


Three men, one woman.

When it comes to love, they believe in one perfect mate, but putting the centuries-old belief to the test could bring them everything they desire.

“I liked Bittersweet Obsessions a lot. It is fresh and different, and a charming love story. The sexual tension is non-stop, with only brief respites for all the characters. It’s hard to predict who will end up with whom, and how that might happen, so it keeps you turning pages till the very end.” — Alberta, Manic Readers 4.5 STARS!

Genre: Contemporary/Paranormal/Sci-Fi/Erotic Romance Format: eBook  Priced at $3.99

BUY at: Red Sage Publishing / Amazon / Powell’s / ARe


Passion too hot to ignore: the romance between a Crainesian woman on the brink of discovering herself, the  life mate she once denied and the intense pheromone heat drawing them together once again. Will she embrace her sexuality and summon enough courage to claim her man in true Crainesian style, or will their growing love be tainted forever? Warning: Explicit language, building sexual tension and sizzling hot love scenes will steam up your e-reader!

“Phantoms and Fantasies is a magical story of love, passion, and healing that will have readers hanging on to every word.” – Tammy, Fallen Angels Reviews. 5 Angels, Recommended Read

INSIGHT (a short story)

What’s a Crainesian to do when her half human life-mate is too clueless to follow when beckoned? Seduce him with his own desires, of course!

Genre: Contemporary/Paranormal/Sci-Fi/Erotic
Format: eBook
