Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

Holiday Fun. Winners Drawn! An E-book and $25 Amazon Gift Certificate Still Up For Grabs!


It’s Christmas!!!...Countdown to the New Year begins.

I hope you’re all having an absolute blast and not reading this post. At least not until all has wound down and you’re looking for a bit of escapism. If that’s the case…I SO get it! We all need to sit back and warmly relish the day behind us. But at this blog, as promised…there’s just a wee bit more beneath the tree.

Are you ready?

First off, I celebrated a book release this week! Heart of Vesuvius (Sequel to Darkest Memory) is now available. As I know many of you will be popping in I thought I’d host yet another contest! As you’ll see, I’ve included a blurb and excerpt from Heart of Vesuvius. Answer the following in a comment by January 1st, 2011 12 AM EST for a chance to win an Ecopy. What profession do you suppose Alexandria pursues?

Two vampires, one goal.

Alexandria has no choice. She must flee to the last place she wants to. Straight into the arms of a vampire she was determined to forget.

Salvator, ancient vampire, finds this a clever fix to obtaining the one vampire who he has always desired, Alexandria.

Together, they must find a way to evade her powerful enemy, Salvator's brother Luciano. On the run, they struggle to understand one another. Deep, dark secrets are revealed. Denied passion ignites. Blood is spilled.

Within the Heart of Vesuvius, anything is possible. All can be conquered. But will it be? Can wrongs be made right? History is the locked door. Forgiveness is the key. Time will tell if ancient love can once again flourish.

A little taste…

“What should I paint?” she murmured to herself.

“What you feel living in the rock.”

Alex wasn’t surprised Salvator stood so closely by her side, that his hand covered hers while she caressed the rock. “You want what I feel?”

“Yes, bella, all you feel.”

Opening her eyes, she watched his long fingers ride hers over the stone. Alex wanted to debate with him, figure out his methods, yet another less used part of her didn’t care, adored the potential only an artist was capable of feeling. “You already know what I will paint.”

“No,” he said close to her ear. “If I did this would not work.”

Turning, she curved into his side, repelled but needing his closeness. “So now you are a prophet as well.”

 "I am vampire,” he whispered into her hair, sniffing as though she smelled unique. “I believe in your talent. If my instinct tells me to let you paint, I listen to it.”

“Paint, Alexandria,” he breathed close to her ear, tongue flicking out, sending shivers through her. “Paint.”

Before she could voice another word, his hand found hers and he slid something into her palm.

Sky here. *chuckles* Bet you’re wondering what Salvator slipped into Alex’s hand. Guess you’ll have to find that out on your own! Click HERE to learn more.
