  1. Thanks, Robin! Here are the details on my latest book, FRANK AND THE WEREWOLF TAMER. It's about a vampire who becomes involved with a modern (and sexy) version of Frankenstein.

    Katherine has had a hard time finding work, mostly because she’s a vampire. Turns out, people aren’t clamoring to work with the undead. She goes to the massive theme park, Notte Oscura, as a last resort. After she watches his sexy “Frankenstein” act, Frank Eastwick hires her on the spot. They are in need of a new werewolf tamer and he has no doubt that she can do the job. Katherine soon learns that there’s more to this hunk than his gorgeous body and numerous scars. Things are working out for Katherine for the first time in years. That is until the vampire who bit her decides to pay them a visit.

Painful childhood memories plague him, sending him spinning out of control and running from any kind of commitment. He pretends not to feel the pain and loneliness while indulging in sexual encounters with nameless, faceless women.

    With the twist of a doorknob, his carefully cultivated façade is shaken by the woman he’d forbidden himself to need.

    The daughter of a recently slain mobster, Elina Vicente has secrets, too. They weigh her down, stealing her strength and her dreams. She’s developed an unhealthy crush on Kingston though he’s never looked at her as anything but his sister’s quiet friend. When she walks in on him in a compromising embrace, Elina seizes the chance to move Kingston from her dreams and into her arms.

    For only the second time in her life, Elina takes something just for her, but try as she and Kingston might, they can’t prevent their pasts from intruding. Shadows of pain and bitterness rise with a vengeance and the lovers will have to decide whether to break free or remain bound…In Wicked Chains.

    Erotic American Set Regency Romance for 18 + Only.

    Grey's Lady, Book One in the Carte Blanche Series.

    Read the entire first chapter (by clicking link, you affirm that you are 18 years old or older. If you're not 18, don't click):

    Blurb: Seeking sexual excitement and conquest, poor but beautiful Beth seduces wealthy merchant prince Grey Sexton, only to find herself the pursued as he seeks to own her body and soul.

    Flouting the moral standards of Jeffersonian America, temptress Beth McConnell lets no man touch her heart. Her motto is love them once and leave them burning.

    But when she boldly seduces Grey Sexton, a self-controlled merchant prince from New York, she finds herself too fascinated by his ice-over-fire nature to stay away. His possessive determination to own her, body and soul, threatens to expose her secret erotic life to public shame.

    But Beth will only surrender her love to a man she can trust. And Grey's materialistic approach to relationships leaves her little reason to believe he can ever give her what she truly needs.

    For these two cynical yet lonely people, can deep sexual intimacy work a miracle and lead to the opening of their hearts.

    Elizabeth meets Riel, the boy from her dreams, and he knows more about her than is humanly possible. He says she possesses a coveted gift that all of Hell is clamoring to seize. The monsters she dreams of are real, and they're battling for her soul. Soon, Elizabeth is thrust into a spiritual realm where she doesn't know friend from foe. Should she trust Riel to help her fight the gathering evil forces so they can save what matters most?

    Wyndy: In a Heartbeat; Aithne Jarretta~Paranormal, Short Story (pg) FREE

    Story Overview:
    Haunted by his past, Malik rushes through a tempest filled Florida night toward an unexpected meeting with destiny. Harboring a soul that longs for unity with his mate, he tries to understand the shallow dating experiences up to this moment. He is positive there is someone with whom his heart beats in tandem. Where? He doesn’t have a clue.
    Wyndy, Tempest Tamer Faery, has waited lifetimes for the return of her soul love.
    Will Malik return?


    Malik punched his foot down, seeking one last push of high before slowing down to turn into his driveway.
    The light changed. Red glared, waving like a spectral omen on the coastal wind.
    Lightning flashed, blinding him briefly, then…
    A scream and sudden flash of movement surrounded by blue.
    He braked hard, unsure of the apparition. Tires squealed. Lexee lost her grip on the wet pavement, spinning rakishly. Rotating the wheel opposite to Lexee’s motion, visions of his life flashed before his eyes.
    He expected a crash. None came.
    Silent stillness…
    Breathing hard, grateful for continued life, he reached for the door handle. The scream echoed in his mind, horror at possibilities out in the wet world compelled him forward. He stepped out, instantly soaked, feet moving of their own volition.
    His heart shook…
    Blackness engulfed the world beyond the blue white lights shining from his car. He froze, unable to make his body move through the shock wrapping his brain.
    She stood in the center of his car’s beams. Wet blue robes moved and shifted finally billowing outward in the rising wind. Head tilted back in full acceptance of heaven’s tears, arms raised to the stormy skies, the young woman remained motionless.
    “Hey,” he said while noticing the blue flowers in her waist length blonde tresses. “You all right?”

  12. Robin, thank you for hosting all of us starving artists. Here's an excerpt from my paranormal romance novel WYNTER'S BLOSSOM.

    Once considered a lone wolf, Wynter Grey is now Alpha to an all-male band of former loners called Unity Pack. Each hand-picked male is willing to do whatever it takes to protect their new pack and the life they’ve worked so hard to achieve. The only thing missing are mates to share their lives with.

    Sarah Eriksson was raised by a werewolf, but a vicious attack by one of her father’s own kind leaves scars that are hard to see and even harder to heal. To protect her child, she will have to face her fears and trust in the only man who can heal her wounds: her new Alpha.

    As they make the journey from mistrust to love, Wyn and Sarah’s relationship is threatened by danger from an old enemy. Will Wyn be able to protect the woman destined to be his, or will fear and doubts keep her from becoming Wynter’s Blossom?

    WYNTER'S BLOSSOM is currently available at

    For all who love romantic suspense, try my latest romance, Triptych, a tale of lost artworks, jealousy, sex, larceny and genius set high on the cliffs over the Potomac River.

    Miranda Cabot lost all interest in love after her husband Edward crashed into the Potomac River rocks called the Three Sisters. Her sister Honor likewise prefers her tower and her writing. Not so the third sister Sybil, who longs for romance with a dashing Frenchman. She advertises for said hero on Craig’s List and is rewarded with the Chevalier du Bon Arnaque, who comes to Washington from Strasbourg on unidentified business.
    Miranda and Honor believe the Chevalier is a crook and ask their neighbors Dieter Heiliger and his grandson Corey, to act as chaperones. With three beautiful, strong-willed women in a house filled with three handsome, virile men, the inevitable result is an intricate web of jealousy, sex, and intrigue. Who will end up with whom, and will the Three Sisters take another life as the legend calls for?

  22. Under the Mistletoe
    Vanessa Alexander Johnson

    Mainstream Romance: Contemporary, Interracial/Multicultural, Holiday: Christmas
    ISBN: 978-1-4543-0134-9
    Release Date: December 19, 2011


    Grace has harbored a secret from her husband, Tony for twenty-five years. She believes he is not the biological father of her son, Trace. Trace is in need of a kidney. Because of her medical history, that eliminates Grace as a donor. Tony is hell bent on being the donor. Grace knows her secret is about to be revealed, and struggles with how she is going to tell him. She believes an indiscretion with a co-worker at her office Christmas Party was whenTrace was conceived.

    Due to her intoxicated state, she doesn't remember everything that happened that night. Is Tony Trace's father?

    Will he be able to forgive her for her indiscretion all those years ago?

    The constant downpour of rain that had been falling all day had managed to enthrall Grace’s thoughts and kept her in a trance-like state for hours. She’d been starring out of her bedroom window deep in thought, trying to think of a solution that would be less painful for everyone involved.

    Mounted at the top of Grace’s list of worries that required her immediate attention was how she was going to tell her husband, Tony, of thirty years, that their twenty-five year old son, Trace, was not his biological son.

    Somehow she’d managed to hide her secret since Trace’s birth. But now, Grace’s secret was about to be revealed whether she exposed it or not. She knew it would be better if the news came from her and not Trace’s doctors. Trace was in dire need of a kidney transplant and her husband, Tony, was hell bent on giving him one of his since Grace had been ruled out because of her own medical history.

    Grace was sure that when Tony went to the hospital to do the preliminary blood work and other test necessary before the surgery to determine if he indeed was a perfect match, then surely the truth would then be revealed.

    She shuddered at this frightening thought. Although she and Tony had become more like roommates than husband and wife over the years, she still didn’t want him finding out about Trace this way. If truth be told, she’d rather him not find out at all. But due to circumstances beyond her control, him finding out wasn’t an option. The question was when and how was he going to find out?

    He deserves better than this, she kept telling herself. It’s the least I can do for Tony, she concluded. “But How?” she pounced her palm a few times hoping to knock a solution inside her head. She had to find a way to tell him, and soon, because Tony was due at the hospital in a few days for the tests.

    Grace knew the news would break Tony’s heart and Trace’s too, regardless of who revealed it.

    The Prophecy, Reincarnated
    published by eXtasyBooks

    What's it about?

    Tedathian thought the space trip to be easy, but after the crash landing on Leroya his life turns out to be a fast rollercoaster ride with women lusting after his body, a ruler out for war and an empress with different goals of her own. Will Ted find a way out without losing himself?

    And an excerpt:

    Yaladan ran her hands along Ted’s shoulders, down his arms and hands. His hands were strong, used to work. She knew what these hands were able to do and couldn’t wait for him to get into the mood again. She had failed him when Nephren entered. She wished for nothing more than to make up for the misbehavior of the Chamarí. Deep in her throat, a giggle sat and wanted out. She felt like a girl when she was with Ted. All she could think of was his perfect body and how he made love to her. She knew she should think clearer.
    First and all, she was the present wife of the Haldru. Playing around with the Haldru’s lucky charm bore trouble. The ecstasy she felt would turn to…
    All she could think of was the bliss of his hands and tongue, and more all over her body. Shivers ran down her spine as she bowed her back to get closer, much closer. If it was possible, she wanted to melt with his body, feel everything he felt and share every thought he had. For now, it was enough for her to bathe in his heat and guess his wishes. She was more than eager to fulfill them all. It had been a long time since she had felt like this with a man. But, no, there was no comparison. He was the Prophecy, a legend in the form of a man.
    Have a great New Year!

She opens the ancient book and finds a pathway to a Faery Realm where all manner of mythical creatures reside. In her naïveté, she summons the Keeper before his scheduled time in the human realm. In that brief moment, the mysterious wizard touches her soul with more than magick. She promises to return the diary during Mefylleth, a time when the barriers between the two realms melt away, but danger stalks her path. Torn between her desire to make a new life for herself in America and her growing love for the Keeper, she must bridge the gap between magick and time to follow her heart.

  28. Thank you, Robin, for letting me do this :P I really appreciate it.

    Eternal Darkness is going to be released on February 1st 2012.
    Eternal Darkness, a vampire paranormal romance book, though I think it's also classed as erotic also.
    It is the first book in my Cursed in Darkness series and I'm dead excited. No pun intended :P

    Here's the BLURB, though it's unedited, so sorry about that.

    Layla, a twenty one year old half-breed, known as a dhampir, is incredibly beautiful and deadly. She drinks vampire blood; for power, but also to stop the burning hunger.
    She is in the protection of an academy full of vampires; a hundred acre of land, surrounded by high tech security to ensure that none enters, or leaves.
    Therefore, when she has lessons with the vampires — not only does she struggle with her hunger, but she also has to learn to trust them, something that is a big issue for Layla because of her past, something she cannot forget or run away from. The past that comes back into her dreams frequently to haunt her and remind her that she cannot hide as she lives her life in the academy.
    That is not the only problem when she meets Shade — an impossibly handsome vampire, and Layla’s one-on-one instructor. Desires that she never knew she had, rise to the peak whenever he looks at her, and she cannot stop how her body reacts to his touch, or how much she wants both his body and his blood.
    However, it is a forbidden lust that they share, one they must keep it a secret from those around them, or Layla risks everyone finding out who she really is.
    Layla is trying to live the life she has, but someone — inside and out — wants her dead, so she not only has to deal with the vampires who hate dhampir’s, but she also has to keep herself alive.
    Can she do it?

    You can also see the awesome cover for Eternal Darkness, and the next two! There's also an unedited excerpt to read too. Just go on click on the Eternal Darkness cover and it'll take you right to the page.
    If you look, I hope you like what you see and read =D

  29. Hi Robin,

    This is sweet of you. My new release, Murder, Mayhem and Mama is out exclusively at Barnes and Noble right now. I have a wonderful video that Rosa Brand, a talented writer and graphic artist did for me on my website. You see the video at my website:

    Here's my book cover blurb:


    Cali McKay's mama isn't ready to pass over to the "other side" yet. Her unlucky-in-love daughter needs her now more than ever. Before Mama can chain-smoke her way to heaven, she's gotta make sure Cali's ex deadbeat boyfriend doesn't get her daughter killed.


    Cali lost her mom to cancer. Detective Brit Lowell, lost his partner to murder. Now he's in the mood to take down some dirtbags and Cali's ex just happens to be a dirtbag leaving a trail of dead bodies behind him. Can Brit trust this beautiful woman to help take down her ex? Can Cali look past this sexy cop's hard exterior to trust him with her heart? Can life get any crazier when Mama starts meddling from the grave? Only one thing is for sure--none of it will matter, unless they catch a killer before the killer catches them.

  30. Hey Robin - thanks so much lady and I'll pimp too. Here's my latest from my silver star recipient from ARe - a HOT m/m piece. Thanks so much for having me!.


    Movie star Hunter Reynolds knew a thing or two about the ladies but he didn’t crave them. Instead, he enjoyed the company of men and while he adored Taylor, his live in lover and best friend, they weren’t in love and Hunter refused to be seen in public with him. After all, Hunter's fans believed he was straight. When he was brutally attacked, he was uncertain he would ever work in Hollywood again and his doctors weren’t sure they could repair the damage. Angry and bitter, Hunter pushed everyone out of his life including Taylor. Sadly, Hunter was merely the latest victim in a series of horrific crimes targeting gay entertainers.

    Macgyver Donovich was a reporter for the LA Times who’d written stories on each one of the victims and was anxious to talk with Hunter. From the moment he met the rough-hewn man who exuded sexuality along with chocking self loathing, MacGyver was fascinated. Determined to get to the bottom of the attacks, Mac wrote a series of edgy columns in an attempt to egg on the perpetrator.

    Entering into a pact to fight back, both Mac and Hunter realized it was only a matter of time before the assailant struck again. As they grew closer by their respective haunted pasts, a series of new threats were issued and both men were forced to confront their demons. As the race to find the attacker continued, Mac and Hunter finally discovered what they’d been missing in life--love. But was it simply too late?

    A Romancing the Pirate novel
    by Jennifer Bray-Weber

    (Award-winning Novel) Although Lianna Whitney was gently bred, she must now empty slop buckets and fight off randy sailors in a seaport tavern to survive. One night, she unexpectedly comes into possession of a golden medallion. But when the man who left it with her is immediately murdered by soldiers of the Royal Navy, she’s afraid to admit she has it. Unsure who to trust, she’s caught up in crossfire between navy officers and a pirate captain, who, realizing she possesses the object he’s been paid to find, whisks her away to his ship during the fight.

    Privateer Captain Zane Fox is not interested in the mystical healing powers the medallion is said to hold, even though the legends claim it can bring a dying man back to life. He only plans to procure the medallion, drop the chit off at the next port where she’ll be safe, and collect the money he was promised. However, as they fend off storms at sea and attempt to outrun the Royal Navy, the two are also fighting the attraction they feel for one another. But when they are captured, Zane must choose between recovering the medallion and saving Lianna from the noose. And soon it becomes clear to him that the medallion is not the only treasure worth risking his life for.

Will their sexual IOUs be paid in full? Or is this just another one of Kiki's crazy ideas?

  37. Blurb:

    Jason Ryerson wakes from sleep in a different room and a different body. In the hour after waking up, he learns that he has been a victim twice over, first of a car accident that cause massive injuries to his old body. Secondly, and more devastatingly a victim of the MORFS plague.

    Jason, now Jessica, learns what it means to be on the other side of the bed. Outwardly a beautiful woman, she is forced to come to terms with how the world views women. As ties to her past are confronted, dissolved or strengthened, Jessica turns her attention to her future. A man who knew her as both Jason and now Jessica becomes more than just a friend. With no secrets between them, will he help her find her way into the world of being a woman?


    Be careful what you give out, it may come back to stare at you in the mirror.


    The locker room was surprisingly clean and mercifully empty. I changed into the heavy-duty sports bra and shorts and then made my way out to the gym floor. As I did my warm-up stretches, I scanned the main floor to see what equipment was available. There were a number of men walking around whose equipment made them seem interesting, but it didn’t take long for me to
    change my mind. I had no interest strutting peacocks that were focused more on picking up women than picking up weights.

    The inclined board seemed to be as good as any place to begin. Starting with the board at mid position, I worked through a set of slow crunches. I reset the board to the next higher level and worked through another set. From that station, I moved around to the others, building up a sweat as I went.

    One station was the butterfly machine. After wiping the seat and grips, in case the previous user hadn’t, I reset the weight higher, a lot higher. Sitting down and hooking my arms into the wings of the machine, I could see the sweat glistening on my skin and staining the front of my bra. Inwardly, I smiled at the noticeable bumps showing through and wondered idly if other people found them sexy. Closing my eyes, I concentrated on the exercise, keeping my back pressed into the padding of the seat and bringing my arms around so they touched each other. Relaxing, I let the machine draw my arms apart and then repeated the movement.

    With my eyes closed, it was easy to feel the strain on my shoulder muscles and across my chest. The reps were slow to keep the muscles under tension longer, to be more effective. Everything felt so different from before where sensations that were just there before now were different, sensual, almost sexual.

    I sat in the machine’s seat staring at my reflection. My top was completely dark from sweat now and the bumps that outlined my nipples were even more pronounced. The endorphin haze felt so wonderful, I didn’t get up immediately. One of the staff noticed and stopped to ask if everything was okay. My eyes flicked from her breasts to face and I just nodded. She returned the smile, brushed her hand over my shoulder, and walked off. Very base thoughts crossed my mind as I watched her in the mirror as she bent over to help another patron at a different machine.

    Stop thinking with the little head, Jessica. Not that it did any good. Visions of the two of us naked and the busty staffer bent over a weight bench danced in my head.

    Not only did her creation cause an uproar in the paranormal community—the fairies want her dead permanently—but her vampire boyfriend is pushing for an eternal commitment, she’s a bridesmaid in her brother’s shotgun wedding, and now a necromancer has emerged, wanting revenge on her for something she did when she was still alive. The hungry corpses he raises from the dead are relentless killers. Can Sam protect her brother’s wedding guests from becoming appetizers for the flesh-crazed zombie army? And how can she keep herself from ending up as the main course?

    Think Bridget Jones meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding...



    Fourteen Days Later was short listed for the Harry Bowling Prize 2008 and received a Highly Commended by the Yeovil Literary Prize 2009.

    When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend's best work trousers, it's time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse.

    Helen's life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question. The tasks are designed to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem but all they seem to do is push her closer to Ayshe's brother, Kalem.

    How will Kalem and Helen get together when she's too foolish to realize that she loves him? How can he fall for her when he is too busy falling prey to her mishaps and too in love with his own perfect girlfriend? How will Kalem's Turkish Cypriot family react when they find out?

    Is it really possible to change your life in fourteen days?


    Helen Grey is finally getting everything she wants. She's about to have the perfect dream wedding and begin an exciting new life abroad on the sunny Mediterranean island of Cyprus. But living the dream isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    After a mix-up at the airport, Helen finds herself drawn into the midst of an elaborate plot to steal an ancient statue and assassinate a local businessman. And as if that wasn't bad enough, her wedding dress is AWOL, the statue seems to be cursed, and Helen is wanted by the police.

    With the big day rapidly approaching, a roller-coaster of mishaps, misunderstandings, and disasters threatens to turn the newlyweds into nearlyweds.

    Can Helen prevent an assassination, save the statue, and have the perfect wedding? Or will the day to remember turn into one she'd rather forget?

    My latest is Guarded Hearts from Lyrical Press:

    What does she fear more, surrendering her privacy or her heart?

    Texas Congresswoman McKenna Jones’s life is in danger when her father’s old enemy surfaces. She’s the target of revenge and narrowly escapes a kidnapping attempt. She's advised to go into hiding until the threat has passed, but her fight to get an important bill passed forces her to stay right where she is. When Ethan Riggins is assigned to protect her it may be a sacrifice on her privacy, but it's no real hardship since he's sinfully sexy and easy to work with.

    For Ethan Riggins, it's a struggle to keep his distance from the congresswoman. McKenna is his assignment, and his friend’s daughter. She also happens to be smart, driven and beautiful. Being around her makes him want to loosen the reins on his emotions, which he's kept in check for far to long.

    When the threat escalates, Ethan and McKenna have to take charge of the investigation so they can discover if a happily-ever-after is in store for them.

But her parents insist she marry a man whose farm is miles from town. She can't solve crimes stuck out there. What better solution than to marry the new marshal!

His friend takes him to Oreana to see the doc, where Cole's mistaken for the new marshal. Now he faces a dilemma few men have to face--tell the truth and hang, or live a lie and end up married. Either way could cost him his freedom.

    ISLAND OF SECRETS Time Travel Gothic Romance

    What if you received a note of warning dated hundreds of years before you were born? What if it was addressed to you?

    A Time Travel-

    A Love Story filled with Suspense-

    A Mystery that will keep you guessing til the end...

    On An Island of Secrets
    One woman, two men and a love that transcends time get a second chance to prevent history from repeating itself. But will love be enough to win the battle against time and stop the force that’s kept them apart for centuries?

    SHANE ALEXANDER has realized he should never have allowed his ex-girlfriend to spend her honeymoon on his island, but he never dreamed she’d run to the tabloids and blab about seeing ghosts. With the future of Leigh Island in danger, he devises a plan to dispel her claims and unknowingly sets in motion events that bring him face to face with a past that not only threatens his future but his life.

    After breaking off her engagement, LILA FITZPATRICK wants a new beginning, but when she agrees to help her roommate by pretending to be a reporter, the last thing she expects to find is the man of her dreams. The question is what will he do when he finds out who she really is?


    THE COUNTERFEIT Historical Romantic Suspense

    Sometimes the Road to Justice is filled with Compromise…

    Jeremy Loud is good at what he does.

    As a Secret Service Operative he’s quick on his feet and a master of his emotions.

    Then, he wakes up naked, disoriented and in physical pain to find a mysterious woman busy at his stove. His first mistake is assuming she’s a barmaid. His biggest mistake is underestimating her ability to get into trouble. Soon he realizes his assignment to infiltrate and bring to justice the infamous Quincy Davenport and his band of counterfeiters might be easier than keeping one strong-willed and beautiful redhead out of trouble.

    Magen MacGuire is determined to find the man responsible for her father’s death and make him pay.

    Then, her plans go awry and a case of mistaken identity leads her to the last thing she expects; a mysterious stranger she could easily fall in love with. She makes a choice to right a wrong, but in her case doing the right thing isn’t viewed as proper and gets them both into even more trouble.

    The odds are against them, but can they find the love of a lifetime before their secrets are exposed and if they do can they overcome the lies?

  48. Hi Robin! I'm having so much fun with this!

    In 2011 I achieved one of my lifelong ambitions, which was to write and publish a novel. The title is Love Has No Limits and I'm very proud of it because it's a very accurate representation of who I am and how I live my life. It is not autobiography but it is authentic. The story follows the adventures of a young Chinese girl who dares to take advantage of the sexual opportunities that she finds in Amsterdam and Berlin, where the sexual mores are so very different from her native China. In the process she learns about her body, her emotions and her true desires. It includes very frank and graphic depictions of sexual activity between men and women so it may not be to everyone's taste but at its core it is a very sensitive novel of self-exploration.

    You can read the first two chapters on my blog:

    If you prefer to devour it whole, you can buy it on Amazon in the US here:

    Or in the UK, here:

    I wish you a joyous 2012 and look forward to reading plenty more ebooks by other authors in the new year, the best of which I will review on my blog.

    Happy new year!
