—Years of loving in secret. Now the secret’s out.—



Mage. Reasonable. Mature. In love with his best friend’s little brother.
Dawn. Painfully shy. Crazy talented. An anxious cinnamon roll in need of protection.


Mage has always been Dawn’s hero. He’s been there for him when Dawn was bullied, when Dawn came out, and when he joined The Underdogs. He’s also been Dawn’s first and only love—painfully unrequited, since Mage is straight. But that’s only for the better, because they’re bandmates, and Dawn’s brother is Mage’s best friend.


It would all be too intense, too complicated, too real.


But then one drunken kiss proves Mage might not be as straight as he seemed, and their whole world turns upside down. Even though Dawn craves Mage’s love so much his heart could burst, his shyness stands in the way of any future they could share.


While they have to keep their budding relationship under wraps and they prepare to sign a major record deal, Dawn’s anxiety gets out of control. Mage will have to choose between the success he’s always craved and the love of his life.

Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!

Identical twins Beau and Duane Winston might share the same devastatingly handsome face, but where Beau is outgoing and sociable, Duane is broody and reserved. This is why perpetually level-headed Jessica James has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life. Whereas Duane and Jessica have always been adversaries. She can’t stand him, and she’s pretty sure he can’t stand the sight of her…

But after a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. Jessica James has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane’s disdain; therefore she’s unprepared for the reality that is Duane’s insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks.

When Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, how much of her level-head heart is she willing to risk?

We’ve made a list, and we’ve checked it, twice
And she’s about to find out what happens to bad girls tonight.
We’ll deck her halls with more than holly
This Christmas Eve, we want her nice and naughty.

They call us ruthless, and cruel. Filthy rich beyond belief, dominant beyond compare, and we run our company with iron fists.

It’s the night before Christmas, but all is not calm. And all sure as hell ain’t right or bright. See, someone’s been skimming from the company piggy-bank, and selling secrets to our rivals.

Not just anyone though. Her.

Noelle Healy. The new hire. The innocently tempting, forbidden little tease who’s been driving us insane in our need to have her.

…and we will have her.

Dark hair, wild, fierce eyes, and just enough sass in those pouty lips and curvy hips to drive a man wild. Or two of them.

But someone’s been a bad, bad girl this year, and she’s about to find her stocking stuffed with two somethings much harder than coal. We’ve got some heavy bells for her to jingle, and enough mistletoe to last all night.

Christmas might come but once a year, but the two of us are far more frequent than that. And Noelle’s about to unwrap a bah-humbugging she’ll never forget.

Ride hard. Ride fast.
And fight for what’s yours.
She’s my obsession. I’m her past.
But I’m back to claim what’s mine.
And this time, I’m never letting her go.

They say I’m hell on wheels. A rebel without a cause. The fastest, hardest, most successful motorcycle racer alive. They say I don’t know how to lose – that I always get what I’m after.

And I always do, except for her – my illicit obsession.

Years ago, I chose fame over forbidden temptation. Back then, she was way too young. Too off-limits. My best friend’s little sister and way too good for a rough, dirty street racer like me.

Now I’m back – rich, hardened, and fallen from grace after getting kicked off the racing circuit. But Hailey Prescot might just be my saving grace. She might be my angel.

Her heavenly curves beg for my dirty hands and rough kiss, and that temptingly sassy mouth get my engine roaring.

My past wants to tear me down, and my demons want to take her away from me. But I lost her once, and I don’t plan on letting that happen again. And once I get my hands on her, I won’t stop until I’ve claimed every part of her.

My name is Aiden Rush, and I don’t know how to lose.

Rebel Rider is a full-length contemporary second chance romance. Steamy, wild, and angsty as hell. Safe, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed happy ever after!

Grateful Knight isn’t looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs.

But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him.

When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn’t what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

One thing’s for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they’re converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she’s forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.

Ooops!

Here I thought I could be lazy and do a release blitz for another authors book. NOPE! I was off by a month. It is January 29! So I have to post any how. Late, but that’s okay. Hopefully everyone is having a lazy Saturday, or is so busy that you didn’t even notice, lol.

I’m super busy right now. I’m getting ready for retirement. Filling out the paperwork, setting up retirement seminars, and setting up book signings for the coming year. Adding to that, I haven’t had time to write in over a month. I’m trying to find a location in my house to write. I’m going to try to be a full time writer, but that is even going to be hard as I’ll be babysitting close to full time.

We’ll have to hash that out, lol.

I want to be able to write, but I need space for that. Right now every space is occupied. Over occupied even. I’m trying to find a space that I can write without being bothered. I need peace and quiet to write. It gets a bit expensive going to the coffee shop each day. For some reason the background music and talking don’t bother me. Of course, they are not trying to get my attention.

I want to get three books out by the book signing, Authors Invade the Beach (Myrtle Beach SC) in May. May 4th to be exact. So from my retirement on February 28th to April, I’ve got to buckle down and get working. Luckily, I’m close the end so shouldn’t be too bad of a stretch! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

In addition, I’m taking a couple of classes at the local community college. Welding for art is one of them. Figuring out the cloud is another. I just don’t get it, so I’m willing to go to a class on it. Hopefully that will make my brain click.

To end today, here’s a sneak peak at a bit of Finding Faith, unedited of course.

Skinning the rabbit, careful to keep the skin intact, she laid it on the largest leaves she could find. Sprinkling some rosemary on it, Faith wrapped the leaves around the meat. She tucked it in the outside of her satchel. She needed to keep moving. If anyone was out hunting and saw a fire, they would join her. Then expect her to return with them. So, a little further along and she’d feel safer from being found.

Circling the outside of the meadow, staying hidden in the trees, Faith headed further from home.

Hopefully no one would realize she was gone until tomorrow.

Her eyes widened at the snarl of a big cat. Faith froze. The sounds of the forest stopped. The cry changed to a snarl of pain. Faith crept beneath a tree, hiding from sight beneath its branches. Curious, she moved silently, trying to peek in the meadow. She gasped.

A shadow flew overhead, darkening the grass of the meadow. A large cat dangling from its claws.

Faith gasped, stunned. It couldn’t be. Fairy tales depicted them, showing the devastation they caused. She stared, heart thundering. Hidden beneath the drooping branches of a pine, she was invisible from the sky. A second one swooped down, snatching its prey and flying away. Faith shrank back then froze. The scream echoing through the woods, was all too familiar. It faded, more and more distant as the dragon stole away his prey.

Her breath caught, her heart stuttering. Oh no, it was Hope! Faith couldn’t help but recognize her own sister’s voice. Frozen, she stared, watching the monsters fly away.

Shaking her head, tightening her lips, she scrambled forward. She had to rescue Hope. There wasn’t time to go home for help. Sliding her knife in her belt, she ran, taking care to stay out of sight in the trees. Crossing the meadow might be shorter, but if there was one cougar there would be more. No use becoming a meal through carelessness. She had a sister to save.

No matter how long it took, she would follow. Hope would do the same for her. Thoughts of finding a new life fell away. She had to save her sister.

Twerk ~ Isobel Blackthorn

Twerk
by Isobel Blackthorn
Genre: Dark Romantic Thriller
Desire, a spark, a decision made too fast, and a Las Vegas stripper is
plunged into the depraved world of a psychopath. But is she the only
target of his twisted desires?
Twerk is a page-turning rollercoaster of a ride.”
Addictive and thoroughly entertaining, Twerk sizzles on every page!”
A regular night in a Las Vegas stripper club is rocked when local punk,
Billy, dies having a lap dance. Paramedic, Dwight Creen, is in
attendance. Filled with lust beneath his gaze, Amber follows him out
to his truck. She’s anticipating sizzling romance but her encounter
soon descends into a terrifying and twisted nightmare from which she
cannot escape.
Five days pass and it is Lana’s next shift at the stripper club. She’s
a fly-in-fly-out stripper paying her way through law school. She’s
also Amber’s best friend. Where
is Amber?
What about Billy? Was it an accident? Suicide? Or murder? Finding
neither the police nor the club are taking an interest, she conducts
her own inquiries. Meanwhile, she’s the victim of a social-media
hate campaign and an ex-boyfriend is sending her death threats. Only,
she is sure it isn’t him.
Lana is thrust into a web of lies and deceptions she cannot unravel. Clues
point her every which way and everyone is a suspect. She’s desperate
for the truth about Billy but the person she most needs to speak to
is Amber, who has not shown up for her shift.
A steamy romantic thriller filled with mystery, action and suspense,
Twerk exposes the working lives of Las Vegas strippers beyond the
glamor – the challenges, the rewards, and the risks.
Isobel Blackthorn is a prolific novelist of brilliant, original fiction
across a range of genres, including dark psychological thrillers,
gripping mysteries, captivating travel fiction and hilarious dark satire.
Isobel holds a PhD in Western Esotericism for her groundbreaking study of
the texts of Theosophist Alice A. Bailey. Her engagement with Alice
Bailey’s esoteric theories and practices has culminated in a
forthcoming work of biographical fiction, in which Isobel explores
the life of the mysterious occultist for too long shunted into the
margins of history.
Isobel carries a lifelong passion for the Canary Islands, Spain, her former
home. Many of her novels are set on the islands, including The Drago
Tree, which was released in 2015 and is now in Spanish translation.
These novels are setting rich and fall into the genre of travel
fiction, and the novels are as much stories about the islands
themselves as they are straight-ahead entertainment.
Isobel has led a rich and interesting life and her stories are as diverse as
her experiences, the highs and lows, and the dramas. Some of her
writing is dark, like the psychological thriller, Twerk, which is
based on six years of research and first-hand accounts of dancers
working in what are euphemistically called gentlemen’s clubs.
A life-long campaigner for social justice, Isobel has written,
protested and leant her weight to a range of issues including family
violence. A Londoner originally, Isobel currently lives near
Melbourne, Australia.

Santa’s Huge North Pole

Santa’s Huge North Pole (A MFM Ménage Romance): A Santa’s Coming Short Story

$0.99

“They say the camera adds 10 pounds, not INCHES!”

When I took a photography job working at the mall, I was just looking for a way to earn an extra few bucks for the holiday. The last thing I was expecting was that Santa could be so freaking hot!

My ovaries went into overdrive as I watched this hunk of a man hold babies and bounce kids on his knee while they babbled on about all the gifts they wanted for Christmas. But what really captured my heart––and attention––was when I had to help pose a disabled girl on his lap. The instant my eyes landed on his huge package, I couldn’t look away!

They say Santa only comes once a year but if I have my say in the matter, he’ll be coming over and over again. Oh, and did I mention his twin who’s equally as attractive? This might be the hottest Christmas ever!

Two men on a mission. Trent and Kraven are so close to finding their mate they can almost taste her. But will they be able to claim the woman that they were destined to be mated with?

Or will it all be in vain…

A lost cause.
