Coming Soon: Black Halo

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Cover Reveal: All Night Long

All Night Long (Black Halo #1) is the second novel about fictional rock band Black Halo, but the first in the Black Halo series. If that seems complicated, I assure you, it really isn't. Maybe it makes more sense this way.

One rock band. Two interlocking series of books, each concentrating on two different couples.

Rock Hard (Xane & Dani)
Come Undone #1 (currently available)
Come Together # 2 (expected release July 2014)
Come Alive #3 (TBA 2015)

Black Halo (Ash & Ginny)
All Night Long #1 (expected release 24th April 2014)
All Fired Up #2 (expected release Winter 2014)
All Right Now #3 (TBA 2015)

and for the sake of completeness Anything But Vanilla is also related to the series by virtue of having it's main characters make a guest appearance in Come Undone.

Phew! Now that we have that straight, here's the blurb for All Night Long.

Three hot guitarists. 
Two people looking for love, but too afraid to admit it. 
One exhilarating night…

One night of rampant passion with a rock star, that’s all it’s supposed to be. Ginny Walters isn’t looking for love, only some sexy fun with an amazingly hot guy; that is, until she hooks up with Black Halo’s lead guitarist, Ash Gore, on the night his band splits up.

Ginny discovers a side to the womanizing, bad boy that she never imagined. Beneath his hard rock image, is a man so hung up on the possibility of being hurt by love that he’s unwilling to risk becoming emotionally involved. How can she convince him that the bond between them is worth exploring, given that she’s not sure dating a rock star is terribly bright idea?

Ash can’t seem to get Ginny out of his head either. She’s totally unlike the women who fan his ego but leave him unsatisfied. Ginny sees through the media hype to the scarred man beneath. Given that Ginny understands him like no one else, is this a one night stand he won’t be able to leave behind?

Valentine's Day Gift Hop

Argh! How can it possibly be February already. I'm sure it was the run up to Christmas only two minutes ago. Now apparently I should be thinking about hearts and flowers and how best to be spending Valentine's Day. Needless to say, I'm not terribly well prepared. I see hurriedly bought wine and chocolates on the horizon. In my defense, this is because I'm buried up to my arm bits in deadlines. I turned the second Black Halo book in at the end of January, and the third (which is the sequel to the first, and is seriously kicking my butt) is due at the end of March. Thankfully, while I'm somewhat lax on the romantic front, I'm glad to report that this isn't the case for my heroes, both Ash (All Night Long) and Xane (Come Undone & Come Together) are rather more in tune with the idea. Well maybe...

‘There are some things for you, on the right,’ Xane called through from the lounge. ‘Since I dragged you here in a rush, I thought you might appreciate some –’ He broke off. ‘Well, see what you think.’

What he devil had he bought her? Stockings? Itsy-bitsy lingerie? When had he even had time to shop? God help her if he actually expected her to model them. She wasn’t prancing around in her underwear for anyone. He ought to have brought Ginny along if he wanted stuff like that.

Dani froze uncertainly near the foot of the bed. Her case sat in the corner, beside a portable stand full of designer dresses. She about-turned, convinced she’d missed Xane’s gift, but there was no other obvious item.

Case temporarily forgotten, she closed in on the rack. He couldn’t seriously have bought her all these. They had to have cost the equivalent of her yearly rent, more maybe.

Staggered, yet unable to keep a grin off her face, Dani ran through the line of outfits. They were all the exact mix of stylish and subversive she expected one of his dates to wear; the sort of clothes that made Elspeth Shriik look like a goddamned goddess. Sudden cramp ripped through Dani’s stomach at the thought that Xane had intended them for Black Halo’s keyboardist. That’s how he’d conjured them at such short notice. The same was probably true of the room. You didn’t get a reservation in a place like this without booking months in advance. Xane had intended to bring Elspeth here after last night’s show. It was her he’d meant to spend the weekend bedding, not crazy Dani Fosbrook, who came out in hives at the thought of undressing for him but who really, really wanted to be with him.

Dani cast the bed an awkward glance, where her mind conjured an image of Xane poised above Elspeth, his lean back bared and the firm muscles of his rear flexing as the pair made their own miniature earthquake.

A twofold hatred of the other woman exploded in her chest: firstly, because she’d been with Xane and he’d obviously loved her; and secondly, because she’d hurt him so badly there was now an unholy rift in the band.

Dani hadn’t overheard much that morning, only that Steve Matlock and Elspeth had got married. Considering that rumours of a relationship between Xane and Elspeth had been rife for years, it didn’t take much to fathom the cause of Xane’s impromptu stage exodus. She wondered how long Elspeth and Xane had been broken up. Her spidey sense said: not that long, possibly under a month, and maybe less than a week. Hell, maybe even less than that, which she guessed made her rebound material. No matter, she’d take whatever she could get.

‘OK?’ Xane remarked. Dani lifted her head to find him poised in the archway that separated one part of the suite from the other. He remained naked, thus drawing her attention from the clothes to the smooth, solid lines of his torso and the ink that encompassed the top of one arm and the whole of his shoulder. He seemed so unreal standing there, as though he were a figment of her imagination, except that he looked twice as good in the flesh as he had in her fantasies. He smiled. ‘They’ll fit. I made sure.’ He nodded at the rail of clothes.

Then perhaps the clothing had been bought for her. After all, she and Elspeth weren’t even vaguely the same shape. The other woman had no hips or butt and only a microscopic pair of tits. Dani had a whole lot more bounty in every regard.

‘How?’ she enquired. It wasn’t as if he’d ever had the opportunity to check out her wardrobe and see what size she wore.

Xane traced the outline of her body in the air with both hands. ‘I’ve a good memory for figures.’ That was one helluva memory.

Anyway, let me know below what you'll be doing for Valentine's Day this year, and I'll pick someone at random to win a copy of Come Undone.

November Update

The last few weeks have been filled with appointments, which generally results in less writing being done. Therefore, I'm rather pleased with myself, because I've managed to stay pretty much on target. Of course, that still means I've oodles to do and not enough time to do it. I wish I was one of those writers capable of producing a book a month, but I'm not, so I'll just have to plod along at the pace I can manage.

2014 is shaping up to be extremely busy. It currently looks something like this:

All Night Long (Ash & Ginny #1) , which takes place at the same time as the start of Come Undone and explores what Ginny got up to with the other members of Black Halo, while Xane was seducing Dani. It's a lot of fun, and I'm enjoying playing with these characters and learning all their quirks. It's due to the publisher in January.

Come Together (Rock Hard #2) the second part of Dani and Xane's story, is next in line. The deadline is likely to be around Easter time. I'm already work on this concurrently with All Night Long, since the two story feature many of the same characters. Black Halo are going on tour. (Hope that's not too much of a spoiler.)

Then heading into the second half of the year, I'll be working on All Fired Up, Ash & Ginny's second outing; delving into the AGW3,  and working on Foursome completed for November. That amounts to rather a lot of word to produce at my rather slow pace. Oh, and there's the Ghosts of Christmas Past, in time for next December, as I know it's not going to be complete for this one. The latter is about Lucerne, reflecting on his past relationships. It's a little melancholy given where he is at the moment, but I'm looking forward to focusing on it at some point, rather than adding to it in drib drabs. It should get me nicely in the mood for working on AGW3.

New Italian Release

I'm please to see a second of my Mischief titles has been translated into Italian as part of the Romanzi Hot Secrets line.

Her Husband's Lover is now available as La dimora degli incontri proibiti

Nel regno della passione non esistono gentiluomini
Lord Robert Darleston è così bello, di una bellezza animale, che piegherebbe con il suo irresistibile fascino la resistenza di qualunque donna. E non solo… Imprigionato in un matrimonio di convenienza con una donna acida e meschina, in realtà Robert è l’ex amante di Lyle Langley, e ora, rifugiatosi nella campagna inglese per sfuggire alle angherie della moglie, può finalmente ricongiungersi con il suo amore. Solo un ostacolo si frappone alla loro felicità: Emma, la giovane sposa di Lyle, di cui Robert subisce il fascino e che non vorrebbe ferire per alcuna ragione al mondo. Quando però Lyle gli rivela che la donna aborre il contatto fisico, tanto da non essere mai riusciti a consumare il matrimonio, Robert ha un’idea: far conoscere a Emma il piacere e instaurare una bollente relazione a tre. Ma per riuscirci dovrà vincere l’opposizione di una moglie gelosa, un padre offeso, e soprattutto i fantasmi del suo passato…

Looking for a Halloween Read?

Then you might like to dip into Phantasmagoria.

The cellar was dark, and if not dank then certainly musty. Bella couldn’t believe it normally smelled so ensanguined; the metallic taste seeped into her mouth, causing a thickness in her throat.

A cowled figure beckoned them into the unknown from the bottom of the steps. Niamh clung to her arm, already trembling. Beyond the wine cellar, the rooms were lit with a sickly green glow, giving the illusion that they were at the bottom of some murky pool. Cobwebs and tattered linens shrouded barrels and caskets, and a notched scythe stood propped by the door.

Tremulously, they followed their silent guide into a vaulted chamber, where four more robed figures formed an arch around a gaping black hole in the brickwork. The guests huddled together behind them, ladies clinging to their escorts’ arms, and the gentlemen all standing to rigid attention, the only indication of their fear their consciously slow breathing as they waited, ears straining, in fearful anticipation.

Sneak Peek: What Ginny did...

With the boys from Black Halo, while Dani and Xane were off together.

‘Bagsey, driving.’ Rock Giant shot upright onto his feet, causing the vase to roll and splash water everywhere.

‘If you must,’ Ash replied, hardly paying him attention.

‘Yes.’ Rock Giant punched the air. ‘I get to drive the va-an… I get to drive the va-an.’ He clasped an invisible steering wheel and proceeded to zoom around the room. ‘OK, everyone, get your shit together. We’re doing this. Fall in. Fall in.’

Not quite sure if she was included in this escape plan, Ginny watched the guys collect assorted jackets and trinkets from around the room.

‘If we end up in A&E I’m holding you personally responsible,’ Spook muttered to Ash, as he fell into line behind Rock Giant. ‘Last time he drove the bus, we ended up doing a 360 degree roll down an embankment, and I swore I was never getting into another moving vehicle if he was controlling it.’

‘Well, if you’d prefer to drive?’

Abject horror filled Spook’s handsome face. He shook his head. ‘No way. You lot drive on the wrong side of the road.’

‘The left is the right side of the road,’ Rock Giant griped.

‘Yeah, how’d you figure that out? It doesn’t even make sense.’

Rock Giant proceeded to careen around the furniture, over egging his performance with brake screeching sound effects. ‘I’ll go get the van keys off Ulf.’

‘Dear God,’ Spook sighed with his head down.

‘It’s OK baby, I’ll protect you.’ Ash draped an arm around his shoulder and squeezed.

Spook shook him off. ‘Lay off the soppy stuff. I’m not here to provide you with post-coital cuddles. You’re supposed to do that with the girl.’ He headed towards the exit with his long white-blond hair falling around his shoulders and his purple guitar slung across his back. ‘I am so glad I insured my fingers. At least I can live off the proceeds after he mangles us.’

‘Is Rock Giant’s driving really that bad?’ Ginny asked, forcing Ash to remember her presence.

‘It’s atrocious. Let’s pray there aren’t any corners between here and the hotel.’ He extended his hand towards her. ‘Are you prepared to chance it?’

Free Woe

I'm celebrating the gorgeous new cover for Woe in Kabukicho, by making it FREE until Thursday. This short story is a prelude to the novel Enticement, featuring the gorgeous Kit, or Sky as he's known when he's working ;) Check it out at Amazon.

She never sought a connection... but a chance encounter with a beautiful stranger in Tokyo's pleasure ward grants her one heartfelt desire.

A visit to a host bar in Kabukicho while on a business trip to Japan results in a chance encounter with Sky, an incredibly sexy man whose job it is to entertain lonely women. When Sky offers to take things way beyond the pouring of cocktails, she finds it impossible to refuse his illicit offer and they embark upon a night of erotic adventure together. However, what she gains is so much more than a fleeting sexual high--but the realization of her heart's desire.
