Happy Spring! Celebrate with Bronco’s Rough Ride

20 Mar

Today is the Vernal Equinox and the official first day of spring! Are you ready for it? In Las Vegas, spring often shows up in February, and we get all sorts of flowers. I love sitting out in my backyard and reading in the balmy days (before the summer heat kicks in and burns everything to a crisp).Spring Snapdragons

Speaking of reading, tomorrow March 21 2014, Bronco’s Rough Ride, the next book in the Bad Boys of Beta Squad series comes out. This is the prequel to The Navy’s Ghost, and you get to see how John “Bronco” Andrews met his wife Lindsey before Ghost, Magic, and Retro got into their mess. Here’s the blurb:
Broncos Ride
What happens in Vegas, stays in the heart…

Chief Petty Officer John “Bronco” Andrews only meant to stay one night in Vegas for a little R&R before resuming his duties as a US Navy SEAL in Coronado. But someone slips him a mickey in the bar and he finds himself in Madame LeBeau’s sex trade. As the product. Doped up on ketamine to keep him docile, Bronco has no choice but to let it ride.

Detective Lindsey Jarvis has been undercover in LeBeau’s sex slave racket for two years and she almost has enough evidence to take it down. Between abduction, prostitution, and murder, she has LeBeau by the short hairs. All she needs is a “product”. John is the perfect witness if she can get him out before the drugs shut down his heart. Then she’ll be free to start a normal life.

Lindsey doesn’t count on her overwhelming attraction for Bronco or her need to see him through detox. But she’s a cop in Vegas and he’s a Navy SEAL, two lifestyles with too much unpredictability to maintain a relationship. Neither have time for more than one wild rough ride, and what happens in Vegas, stays. Forever.

Come join Bronco and Lindsey on their wild ride on March 21st 2014 everywhere ebooks are sold. Kick-ass adventure, a hot cop, and a hotter SEAL. And remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in the heart…

SexyScopes – 2014 Annual Forecast

29 Dec

2014Book news first 🙂 – Thank you to all the loyal readers of my futuristic Innerworld Affairs series. The never-before-released Book 5, “ROMAN” will be available for download in the spring! My Amazon Author Page

When it comes to a long-range forecast that needs to be generalized for a large number of people, the metaphysical tool I find to be most accurate is numerology. I won’t list all the things that created negative energy, making tough situations even harder last year, but I would like to point out that in numerology 2014 equals “7”, the number that has two distinctly different interpretations depending on one’s behavior in the previous years—either positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion or challenging upheaval and confrontations due to situations one has been avoiding. Below you’ll find the key to discovering the numerology affecting you personally in 2013, but first here are the astrological factors that could help you do some advance planning.

Since Mercury rules travel as well as technology, it’s always helpful to know when that planet is going to be retrograde before planning vacations. In 2014, the weeks that could be troublesome are: 2/6-2/28, 6/7-7/2 and 10/4-10/25.

Next in importance to me is where Saturn will be hanging out because The Karmic Lord, or Teacher, as the ringed planet is called, tends to put its host through a series of trials and tribulations. Though the tests are individually designed to help the student address and grow past their personal karma, Saturn’s extended stay can be a heavy burden, especially if the person is resistant to growth. Saturn has been in Scorpio since October 2012 and will remain there until December 2014. A bit of good news for all you Scorpions, there will be a lessening of pressure during the planet’s retrograde period this year from 3/2 through 7/20. Just keep in mind, the sooner you learn your lesson, the sooner you’ll get rewarded for your efforts.

Equal in influence to Saturn is Jupiter, who is known as The Great Benefactor (I call him the Fairy Godfather). Jupiter supports dreams and goals, particularly those involving one’s career. Jupiter has been in Cancer since last summer, but it’s been hampered by its retrograde position since November. The big guy goes direct again March 6th so Cancerians will have four and a half months to use Jupiter’s energy to achieve an important career goal. Then, on July 20, all that sparkling goodness shifts to Leo for a year. Pay attention moon babies—it’s been 12 years since you’ve had this kind of supportive energy! Make the most of it before it moves on.

I will keep you posted on the dates of the New Moons, Full Moons and eclipses in my monthly posts.

And now, back to numerology and what it means to you in the year ahead.

Very simply, numerology is the study of numbers and their connection to the human experience. Within this study, our lives are divided into nine-year cycles, with each year carrying a specific energy, advantage or challenge. One important note—each numerological year runs from birthday to birthday, not January to December. That said, the following will help you calculate your current and upcoming year numbers in order to glimpse what 2041 has in store for you.
The first step in utilizing numerology is to condense the number in question (regardless of how many digits it initially contains) down to a single digit between “1” and “9”. This is done using simple addition.
In order to see what the coming year has in store for you, you need to know what number year you are in at this time and what energy you will be moving into on your next birthday. To figure that out, the calculation is made using your last birthday.
For example, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, the following would be the method of determining the energy or purpose of your current year:

A. Write down the last birth date in numerical form with plus signs in between each whole number:
11 + 5 + 2013
B. Each portion of the date must now be condensed to a single digit. The day is the 5th, which is already a single digit. To reduce the month and the year to single digits, add the individual digits together:
Month: 11 becomes 1 + 1 = 2
Year: 2 + 0 + 1 + 3 = 6

C. Now you have three single digits that need to be added together:
Month: 2
Day: 5
Year: 6
Adds up to 13

D. Since the total is a double-digit number, it still needs to be condensed to one:
13: 1 + 3 = 4

Thus, if your last birthday was November 5, 2013, you are currently in a “4” year and will be moving into a “5” energy next November.
The last step is to find out what your year number means in terms of what you can expect to be the focus of your life for that year.

1 – Beginning of a new 9-year cycle, fresh starts, leadership, new ideas or plans
2  – Relationship issues (for better or worse), duality, double duty, options between two things or people
3 – Playtime, free spiritedness, taking risks, gambling, good luck
4 – Hard, possibly tedious or exhausting work, no time to relax let alone play, but if used positively lays the foundation for something strong and lasting
5 – Changes, transitions, halfway point in a cycle or major project, fine-tuning and making adjustments in long-term plans
6 – Domestic peace or harmony, comfortable home environment, rest and recuperation
7 – Depending on previous responses to situations or behavior leading up to this year, either upheaval and confrontations regarding issues being ignored or positive spiritual connections and psychic expansion
8 – Rewards for work done, favors returned, reaping the harvest of seeds previously sown
9 – Endings, conclusions, cleaning, de-cluttering, making space (literally or figuratively) for a new cycle

Happy 2014! I hope yours is magickal and all your reads are Passionate.

Hot New Release to Warm the Cold Nights

12 Dec

Good morning! Brr! Is it cold out there where you are? It is here in Las Vegas. I know that seems like an odd occurrence, but deserts do get cold in the winter, and Vegas is in the driest desert in North America. So it’s cold and dry here. Perfect time to get hot and wet, right? LOL

Last week, my newest releast The Navy’s Ghost, came out, and it’s a hot menage a’SEALs. Here’s the blurb:

TNG-webfinalA SEAL is strongest with her Team…

Ensign Christiana “Ghost” Brickman is the only female SEAL to survive BUD/S training, a real Navy Jane. But when an ambush ends her career as an active SEAL, she’s free to pursue other interests. Like her two best friends Lt. Jim “Retro” Waters and Chief Warrant Officer Todd “Magic” Hunter. She’s wanted them for over a year, but never dared to approach them while in the squad.

Retro has fought his dark desires since high school, certain the need to share a woman unnatural. Magic had never considered sharing before Ghost mentions it, but it solves his dilemma of choosing between his best friend and his woman. But Retro balks at Ghost’s offer to share and retreats from both when she marries Magic.

Everyone feels Retro’s loss, but he ignores the ache of their broken connection in favor of living ‘normal.’ When Ghost and the other wives of Beta Squad are kidnapped, Retro must reevaluate how much both Ghost and Magic mean to him. And he must decide how far he’s willing to go to save the woman he loves, before she becomes the Navy’s ghost.

And here’s an Excerpt The Navy’s Ghost:

As she lay dying on the grimy floor of the Nicaraguan warehouse, Magic’s feelings for Ensign Christiana Brickman had crystallized into blinding clarity. I love her. He’d ignored the thought in favor of saving her life, but now, with the squad around him and the action settled, it came roaring back into his mind, clear as day. Jubilation mixed with terror settled into his gut. No fraternization within the ranks. Too bad his heart couldn’t remember the rules.

“How’s she doing, Magic?” Retro shouted through the mic to Magic over the rotors.

“Stable for now. High as a kite, but stable.”

“Good to hear. Pilot says back on base in fifty mikes.”

“Roger that.”

“Why do they always use boys’ names for everything?”

Retro and Magic turned to the woman lying between them and met the clouded hazel gaze beneath the lowered brows. “Say again, Brickman?”

“Boys’ names. Why do they always use them for everything?”

“What are you talking about?” Retro raised an eyebrow.

“You know, Mike for minute, Roger for understood.” Brickman rolled her head to pin Retro with her focus. “Jimmy for futzing with locks. Hey, your name is Jim.” She licked her lips and swallowed. “I like your name, Jim Retro. And I like you, too. You’re handsome.”

“Yep. Definitely high as a kite.” Retro snorted and shot a smile at Magic. Todd tried to smile back, but his gut sank. What if she preferred Jim over him? Get your head back in the game. She’s never shown interest in any of us.

“Yeah, but I’m pretty sure she’s not in pain. With the dosage I gave her, she should be floatin’ on cloud nine by now.”

“You’re my cloud nine, Magic.” The hazel gaze hit him and he tried not to fall into it or the words she murmured. “So sexy and smart and nice. All the Navy bunnies just love you.” Her lips tightened in irritation. “Sluts.”

Magic raised his eyebrows. Don’t listen to her, she’s out of her mind. Except morphine often acted like a weak truth serum, stripping away inhibitions to expose real sentiments underneath. Chris turned her head away to mumble something under her breath as a mild frown creased her forehead.

“Not good enough for you.”

“Say again, Ensign?” Retro leaned closer to her.

“They only want dick, you know.” Her gaze slid slowly back to Jim’s face. “You deserve better, Retro. Mo’betta. ’Cause Bravo Squad does everything mo’betta. They should call it Betta Squad.” She trailed off in a dreamy, sing-songy voice.

“At least she’s got that right.” Retro shook his head, a half smile quirking his mouth.

“Bravo Squad definitely does it mo’betta.” Ghost fixed him with a hard stare. “Just like you, Retro. And you need someone who knows you. You, and Magic, too. Perfect, sexy, tall, and hard. Like bananas.”

“What?” Magic traded looks with Retro.

“Oh, shit. You better knock her out before she says something really crazy.”

“Bananas. You know…” Chris raised one hand, curling her fingers into a C-shape before swaying it back and forth as if stroking something. “Long, hard, smooth, and warm.” She grimaced. “Bananas. So much better than cucumbers. Mo’betta in Betta Squad.”

“Knock her out, Magic.” Retro growled as the other squad members snickered in the background.

Happy Thanksgiving!

28 Nov

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to the readers in the US! And I give thanks to all you readers who live in the rest of the world, too. Without you, I wouldn’t be the author I am today and I’m so grateful you’ve given me the chance to share my stories with you.

For my family, Thanksgiving represents a time to get together and enjoy each other’s company. Mr. SM and I take the kids and visit with my folks and my brother’s family in the high desert, looking for antelope (“anigoats” as my kids say), coyotes, and big horn sheep along the way. We spend a few days screaming at football games (well, they scream. I read) and sharing in good food. I try to count my blessings and take stock of how lucky I truly am.

As I close in on my second year of being a published author, I want to say thank you to the wonderful authors I’ve met along the way: Nara Malone, Marilyn Campbell, Karla Doyle, Silver James, Cat Johnson, Gem Sivad. These are just a few of the ones who have encouraged me, commiserated with me, and helped me on my way.

The tradition is to start Christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving and get revved up for the holiday busy-ness associated with the end of the year. I hope you get a chance to relax and enjoy this holiday and be raring to go on Monday, December 2 2013. Because that’s when The Navy’s Ghost, the first book in my Bad Boys of Beta Squad series comes out. It’s a M/F/M romantic suspense and I stay true to my tag line of “kick-ass adventure with hot sex”. Here’s the blurb:

TNG-webfinal

A SEAL is strongest with her Team…

Ensign Christana “Ghost” Brickman is the only female SEAL to survive BUD/S training, a real Navy Jane. But when an ambush ends her career as an active SEAL, she’s free to pursue other interests.

And he must decide how far he’s willing to go to save the woman he loves, before she becomes the Navy’s ghost.

Thank you again for stopping by on this gratitude holiday and I send mine to all of you. Many blessings! 🙂

Super Heroes!

18 Aug

Superman SIf you could gain one super power, what would you choose?

Obviously that’s not an original conversational ice-breaker but, as a major fan of sci-fi, metaphysical studies and Super Heroes, I never tire of hearing what different individuals will choose. Thus, when I started writing romances, I focused on sexy heroes with superior abilities and put them in a futuristic world in the center of the Earth. And that was how the Innerworld Affairs series had its own Big Bang.

Romulus.phpROMULUS (my first) could communicate telepathically…perhaps because my personal wish at the time was to have a mate who would know what I wanted without my having to give step-by-step verbal instructions.

Falcon.phpIn the second book, I gave FALCON a long list of psychic skills to support his profession as a tracker, but I raised the heat level by making him humanoid with certain feline characteristics, like his eyes and tongue (you can guess what I did with that), plus I made him a confirmed sexual virgin.

Gallant.phpIf I told you about GALLANT‘s special gift, it would be a huge spoiler but I will say that it is something that could threaten the entire Universe.

Gabriel.phpAnd then there was GABRIEL, who considered his “gift” of being a universal receiver as a curse.

And now it’s ROMAN‘s turn. This is a book started a while back but never got finished, though I knew from the start what his special talent would be. The son of ROMULUS had no discernible super powers…until something happened in the fourth book. Now he can go invisible at will or totally dematerialize in order to pass through solid objects. With such an ability, it was quite natural for him to become a tracker…and a spy.

The first four books of the Innerworld Affairs series have been revised and updated and are now available at all major e-tailers.

But getting back to my favorite question—if you could have any one super power, what would it be?

SexyScopes for August 2013

3 Aug

Before I relate the August forecasts, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who already purchased one or more of my rebooted, futuristic romance, Innerworld Affairs books—ROMULUS, FALCON, GALLANT & GABRIEL are now available at most major etailers!

LeoNews for all signs:

***Sun in Leo thru 8/22 puts emphasis on one’s image, makeovers & showing off; ***New Moon in Leo 8/6 is a great day to start a new diet and/or fitness regimen; ***Full Moon in Aquarius 8/21 is a good evening to party with friends

The forecasts below involve two of my passions – astrology and tarot. The first card is a general message, the second is about love & relationships (sexual, romantic, friendly, familial). The interpretations are from my book, “Tarot of The Lotus Circle”, but you’ll have to use a little intuition to determine what it means to you personally. Have fun!

ARIES – March 21 to April 19

6 of Cups: Look to the past for answers about the present. A Spirit Guide is coming to you in human form. Remember and learn from the past but live in the present. Literary efforts are favored by this card.

Prince of Coins: A younger male, with skill in mathematics or technology, is, or will soon be, an important part of your personal life.

TAURUS  – April 20 to May 20

5 of Cups: Though mourning is a healthy step in dealing with loss, it is not a lifestyle. It’s time to pick up the pieces, clean yourself up and get on with your life.

Princess of Cups: A message you’ve been hoping for about a personal relationship is finally on its way to you this month.

GEMINI – May 21 to June 20

The Star: The whole Universe has lined up to hear your wish. Do be careful what you wish for though, because the odds are that you will get it. A spotlight is about to shine on you and your talents. Bounty is flowing freely, but not always with clear purpose.

2 of Cups: Perfect. That’s the only word to describe the relationship you are in or very soon will be. Don’t question it or doubt that it’s real. It is and you deserve it.

CANCER – June 21 to July 22

Lucky moon babies – Jupiter has entered Cancer for a 12-month stay so you can expect a major goal or dream to be achieved before the Great Benefactor moves on.

Queen of Cups: Nurturing and caretaking are the key words for you this month; either you must put someone else’s needs before your own or you need to allow someone else to take care of you…in their own way.

The Magician: Someone new is entering your life in an unusual way. Fate set up the meeting long ago, but Serendipity makes it interesting. What you do after the encounter is up to you.

LEO – July 23 to August 22

2 of Swords: Regardless of what is going on behind your back, you have two Spirit Guides protecting you. Don’t let your inability to clearly see an outcome stop you from taking action.

10 of Swords: You’ve reached the end of a relationship as it has been. Either work together to figure out how to rejuvenate it or let it go and move on.

VIRGO – August 23 to September 22

Ace of Coins: A money Spirit Guide has just stepped forward to help you find a new source of income. It will be to your benefit to start fresh.

King of Wands: A male over 40, of medium coloring with both creative and business skills will play an important role in your relationship area this month.

LIBRA – September 23 to October 22

2 of Wands: You’re almost there. Stick with it. Start saying thank you now and the results will come in sooner.

4 of Wands: Commitment is the key word in all relationships. Whatever stage you are at, it is about to step up to the next level. This could mean moving in together, getting engaged or even married. A family member may need to move in with you or vice-versa.

SCORPIO – October 23 to November 21

4 of Cups: You have a good life, and yet, you’re finding fault with it. You’ve almost got it too easy now. A challenge to your boredom will be offered but the choice will be yours. Choose action over stagnation.

The Tower: Whether or not you’re happy in your partnership, something shocking is about to occur that will break the status quo…for your own good. If single, prepare to meet someone who knocks your socks off!

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 to December 21

7 of Cups: You have the gift of productive dreaming, but the handicap of being a daydreamer. Make sure you are using your imagination to flesh out creative ideas and not just spacing out.

9 of Coins: This is meant to be an enjoyable alone time for you. A mate is out there for you, but this is not the right time. The longer you stay single, the happier and more successful you will be later. If committed, you may realize that you have financial security but live in separate worlds. Stay independent of family for now.

CAPRICORN – December 22 to January 19

2 of Coins: You are trying to justify your spiritual beliefs with what you were taught as a child. Stop “thinking” and just “feel”. There is a blend you can live with. Remember that you can be good at several things but to be really great, you need to focus on one.

9 of Cups: Your wish for a loving relationship will be granted, whether it is romantic or familial.

AQUARIUS – January 20 to February 18

The Lovers: The atmosphere around you is tense with the need to make a very tough choice between extremes. There is no way to find a compromise on this one. For guidance, select another card for each option and read its meaning in the relevant category.

King of Swords: A male over 40, either dark in coloring or demeanor, in a position of authority, possibly law or military, will play an important role in your relationship area this month.

PISCES – February 19 to March 20

10 of Coins: The Universe is granting all your wishes. Remember to be grateful every day and share your abundance with those in need.

4 of Coins: Either you or your partner are more interested in material wealth than love. Stop trying to convince yourself that that is enough for you. Don’t be stingy with your affection. There’s always more on tap to draw from.

Innerworld Revisited (& Revised!)

21 Jul

   Some months back I announced that I was updating the futuristic romances I wrote long ago and preparing them to be converted to e-books. Today I have a bigger announcement – the original four books of the Innerworld Affairs series are now available for download at Amazon (all other major e-tailers to follow in the next week or so).

     Because my series about an alien world in the center of the earth (Innerworld) was significantly updated and revised, they now have new covers and new titles:

Romulus.phpROMULUS (formerly Pyramid of Dreams)

     Aster Mackenzie wants to go home. But she’s trapped in the Earth’s core, where advanced humanoids mine a rare energy source for their home planet, Norona. Worse, she’s triggered the Noronian mating fever in Romulus Locke, Innerworld’s Chief Administrator.

     Romulus intends to be Governor of Innerworld but the moment he touches Aster, the fever takes hold, bonding them as soul-mates. Never has the fever affected a Terran, and intimacy between the races is forbidden; a conundrum Romulus has no time to explore.

     The asteroid heading toward Earth is about to destroy both their worlds. Risking everything, Romulus takes Aster with him to Outerworld to warn Earth’s scientists and is captured.

     Now Aster must face her destiny and convince the powers of Norona to accept a long-hidden secret if her soul-mate is to survive.

Amazon Buy Link 

Falcon.phpFALCON (formerly Topaz Dreams)

     Falcon, a gifted half-breed tracker, is in San Francisco to retrieve a ring stolen from Innerworld, located in Earth’s core. Too many Terrans are dying at the hands of the billionaire thief experimenting with the ring to gain access to Innerworld.

     What should have been a simple assignment is quickly complicated by repeated encounters with Stephanie Barbanell, a Terran investigator hired by the wife of a scientist kidnapped by the billionaire.

     Stephanie has always worked alone, and Falcon is not worthy of trust. But joining forces with the mysterious man seems the only solution to rescuing her client’s husband… until the forced proximity ignites overpowering and unwelcome desires. 

     Stephanie’s experience has taught her that sex equals loss of independence. A sexual virgin, Falcon believes submission to his human half will strip him of his superior abilities.

     But success of the mission will require both… regardless of the loss.

Amazon Buy Link

Gallant.phpGALLANT (formerly Stardust Dreams)

     Cherry Cochran, a feisty Terran actress in Innerworld, witnesses the murder of an intergalactic trader. When Gallant Voyager, an  agent for the Consociation, sees the victim speak his final words to Cherry, he kidnaps her “for her own protection”.

     Gallant needs his prisoner’s cooperation to discover why the trader was permanently silenced. But he has no idea how much trouble he’s brought aboard his ship. While tracking the killer to a distant galaxy, his verbal battles with Cherry turn physical as primitive passions burn away their differences.

     Then Cherry discovers Gallant’s truth: he is slave to the barbaric alien behind the murder, and a double-cross is in the works.

     With her own life in danger, Cherry faces a choice: put on the performance of her life to escape the captor she’s come to love and warn the Consociation of impending invasion or rely on a suspicious offer of help from one of the barbarians to save her lover.

Amazon Buy Link

Gabriel.phpGABRIEL (formerly Stolen Dreams)

     When a dying time-traveler arrives in Innerworld to warn Shara Locke of a coming disaster, she is convinced that if she goes back far enough in time, she can prevent the catastrophe and clear up a personal dilemma in her ancestry.

     Then Gabriel Drumayne, a Noronian historian, discovers Shara’s plans and threatens to expose her unless she takes him along. Gabriel’s agenda: stop Shara.

     But the device is faulty, each time-hop rapidly disintegrating Innerworld and its people, while igniting the Noronian mating fever in Gabriel and Shara, bonding them as soul-mates.

     When the pair finally return, nothing is as it was. The only solution: erase all memory of their journey including information gathered to prevent the coming disaster… and their love.

Amazon Buy Link

    And the biggest news I have today is that I am finishing book 5, ROMAN, which had been planned but never made it into the hands of readers. I will keep you posted. Meanwhile…

Hoping all your reads are Passionate,
