Coming Soon - Martyrs

Good Monday Morning!

Michele and I are hard a work trying to get a couple of projects completed. One of them is Martyrs!

Martyrs is a sub-series to TSU ~ After Dark. It happens in current time, however no one in either After Dark or TSU will be affected by it.

We hope to have the first part of this trilogy available at the first of June. We will keep you posted on the timeframe.

Blurb:

Legend says there will be one woman who can bring about the end of the apocalypse. 

Nova Blom, (pronounced bloom) carries the weight of the world upon her shoulders. As a full-time student at TSU majoring in Anthropology with a minor in Archaeology, she doesn’t have time for generational stories or prepper “end of the world,” crap. She believes in science and what cultures/society can tell humanity about the follies of their past.

Four seals have been broken.

“Low and do I see four angels and death was in the lead.”

Pest, Misery, Reaper and Murder have been released of their celestial chains by an unknown source. Their job is simple, bring chaos to the land to herald the coming of Lucifer. However, the sins of the flesh have consequences.

Legend becomes reality.

Nova is willing to do whatever it takes to save the world. Including, forging a pact with the devil and his four horsemen. Their time together is limited and they must find the source before the seventh seal is broken.

Can Nova trust the harbingers of the apocalypse or is it the end of the world as we know it?


Excerpt:


“She's uncomfortable,” Misery said. “There are reasons she's not telling us.”
She jerked, surprised by the gentle edge of his usually smoky voice. “Thanks. It's a lot to unpack and I don't want to burden you with it.” Or put you on my father's shit list.
“Well, we're here if you ever want to tell us,” Pest gripped her hand.
“Thank you.” She glanced up and tilted her head to the side. “Mister-er Professor King?”
The six men surrounding her glanced up.
“Ah, students.” Professor King winked at her. “You're not doing anything I wouldn't do, are you?”
“Uh?”
He laughed. “The list is small—getting smaller every day. You’re young, enjoy it.” He pierced her with his bold, cobalt blue gaze. “Life is for living Miss Blom.”
She couldn't breathe. Her mouth went dry. Her hands trembled. Her sex ached and the proof of her arousal dampened her panties. “Right.”
“We thought we'd enjoy an evening with Nova,” Pest announced, drawing Professor King's attention from her.
“Yes, all work and no play, such as they say...” Professor King frowned. “It's good to see all of you together.” He gave Nova a lascivious look. “Remember Miss Blom, seize life by the balls.”
“I-I will,” she said, swallowing around the lump of lust forming in her throat. What was it about the man that she couldn't take her eyes off of him? Since seeing him in her biblical studies class she'd been infatuated with him. Now, with him standing in front of her, he made her ache for something forbidden. Something decadently obscene.
“Join us,” Murder grunted. “Or can the Prof, not drink with students?”
“Oh, I don't want to intrude.”
Nova wanted him to. “Please?”
“Well...” He gave her a devilish grin. “I suppose one beer won't hurt.”

Interview with Jackson Stone from HIS CHERISHED LOVE


Thanks so much for having me today. My name is Anya Summers and I am super excited for y’all to meet my latest hero Jack Stone, from my latest Cuffs and Spurs release, His Cherished Love. Jack is just a sweetheart. He’s the hero who rushes in to save everyone with no thought for his own safety. And he’s met his match in his newest neighbor, Rayna Thompson. 

What is your name? Do you have a nickname?

Detective Jackson Alan Stone. My friends call me Jack. The Chief and everyone at the Jackson Hole Police Department call me Stone. 
 
Where were you born? Where have you lived since then? Where do you call home?

Right here in beautiful Jackson Hole, Wyoming. In Douglas, Wyoming for the Police Academy after I received my Bachelors degree in criminal justice from the University of Wyoming in Laramie. I’ve been back in my hometown of Jackson Hole since I graduated from the academy.
 
What is one strong memory that has stuck with you from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting?

Local police coming to our house after my father beat my mother. The way they tried to help her, even as she refused to press charges against my father. It lived with me. Especially since it happened more than once. I knew by the time I was twelve that I wanted to be a police officer, be there to help others. It steered the course of my life.

You’re getting ready for a night out. Where are you going? What do you wear? Who will you be with?

When I actually have a night off and am not neck deep in a case, I head to my favorite place: Cuffs and Spurs. It’s a lifestyle club owned and operated by my good buddy Spencer. I tend to wear jeans and a flannel shirt with my Stetson on my head and my cowboy boots. It’s one of the few places besides the rodeo that I look like a cowboy. Once I’m at the club, I loose the shirt. All the subs like getting a glimpse of the package. It depends on the night. Some nights, I show up alone and others I meet my buddy Garrett or Alex. Although they haven’t attended much lately considering they were both attached and engaged.

Where do you go when you’re angry? What do you do there?

Typically, the gym or the boxing ring. The work I do is a recipe for stress and anger. The only way to get rid of it is through physical exertion. And because I would never go to the club angry, frustrated perhaps, but never angry, I get it out of my system. And then go to the club where I end up balls deep in a willing submissive.

Have you been in love? Had a broken heart? Who was it and what happened?

Head shaking with a snort. No. I don’t do love or emotions. I have witnessed their destruction firsthand and prefer to keep my interactions to the club.

If you had to make a meal for me right now with only the ingredients in your refrigerator and pantry, what would you make me?

Probably barbecue some brats, make some corn on the cob, and a salad.

Look down. Describe what you’re wearing. Is this the way you’re normally dressed? If not, what do you normally wear?

Right now, I’m in a gray tank and black basketball shorts. And no, this is not what I normally wear. I’m currently on medical leave. Usually, for a day at the station, I’m in jeans, and a dress shirt with a bullet proof vest underneath since I moved from a uniformed office to a plainclothes detective months ago. I’ll tell you a secret. I liked the uniform more, just because there was no decision making when it came to what I wore to work. In addition to my jeans and dress shirt, I have my shoulder holster with my Glock and tended to wear my badge on a chain around my neck. Sadly, my Stetson is not part of my out daily wear. They tend to discourage wearing them.

What’s the one thing you want out of life that you don’t think you can have? Why can’t you have it?

I have everything I need in life. I’m not one of those people that look in another person’s yard and thinks the grass is greener there. I like my life just fine. At least, that’s what I tell myself every day.
 
His Cherished Love

Release Date: May 23, 2019

Rayna Thompson’s entire life is a lie. She avoids relationships as if they were the plague – mainly because the people who get close to her wind up dead. And yet her newest next door neighbor, the sexy, stoic Jack Stone, is making her want to break all her rules. The problem is, he’s a cop, and she doesn’t know how long it will take before her past catches up to her and all her secrets are revealed.

Jack believes in law and order. He keeps his work life separate from his personal life. Not that he has much of a personal life as a Detective with the Jackson Hole Police Department; most of it is relegated to the private lifestyle club where he is a member. However, during his latest assignment, he begins to blur the lines between professional and personal.
Rayna pushes each of his boundaries and makes him question everything he knows about the law and what he’s willing to do for love. Will their newfound relationship survive when her past comes back to haunt them? 

Publisher’s Note: This steamy, suspense-filled contemporary romance contains themes of power exchange. While it is part of the best-selling Cuffs & Spurs series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

On Sale May 23rd!
