Announcement: The Stark Affair

Just want to let you know I’m hard at work on HEAT, Book 1 of my new series THE STARK AFFAIR. It releases on October 22 and will be free at most retailers.

This one is going to be EXTRA HOT! I suggest oven mitts and fireproof panties when ordering.

Right on its heels will be Book 2 FLAME releasing on October 29 for 99 cents.

Here are some tasty tidbits:

  • Colton Stark, a chiseled blue-eyed billionaire who usually gets any girl he wants. (Think David Gandy. Yum.)
  • Sofia Martinez-Vallejos, tough Miami cop who is sent to find out why he is stealing money from his own company. Billionaire playboys do NOT impress her. (Think Michelle Rodriguez. Yum.)
  • Sofia is in a relationship with pretty but ditzy Kristy, but can’t help fantasizing about Colton Stark when she sees a picture of his eyes.
  • Colton’s life is controlled by others… by his company’s Board of Directors and by his devotion to a secret organization that prevents him from flipping his Bentley at 120mph in the Everglades out of sheer frustration.
  • When Sofia goes to Colton’s South Beach club Heat, he sees her from across the room. At that moment…
  • A burning flame SPARKS!

Get ready for some steamy and sultry HEAT!

In the meantime, TATTERED ANGEL releases as a prequel to THE CAGE SESSIONS on October 2. Then, THE CAGE SESSIONS BOX SET comes out on October 7.

Watch for THE STARK AFFAIR cover reveal soon!

Freed: The Cage Sessions Book 5 Now Available!

cage_freed (1)The conclusion of the five-book series The Cage Sessions

Thunderclaps and lightning bolts slam through Miami…

Damien Cage is in BIG trouble. Arrested and in jail for a crime he didn’t commit… all because of Annika’s actions.

Annika finds herself frozen out of Damien’s world. Even Jasmine won’t talk to her. The only solace she finds is an odd spiritual connection with comatose porn star Marcellina Montero, Damien’s former love now withering away in a hospital bed.

Soon, events change with a fury. Annika is thrust into an epic confrontation between her fears of the present and the ghosts of the past.

The aftermath shows her that the bond between Damien and Marcellina may never be broken, forcing her to make a tough decision… one that could be the end of Damien Cage for her.

Girlfight

OK, you want a hint about my next series? It’s about a female cop and a criminal billionaire playboy. Not going to say anything else at the moment.

My inspiration for the main character is badass Michelle Rodriguez. So I’m recommending a movie which knocks my socks off every time I see it. Just watched it again last night and I’m always amazed how it blows me away:

If you haven’t seen it, watch it today! Seriously, it kicks ass.

While we’re on the subject of music…

This is the song from INDECENT: THE CAGE SESSIONS BOOK 1 that I sooooooo wanted to include in the story. However, doing so would have cost me thousands of dollars in royalties and/or fines.

So if you’re just reading INDECENT for the first time… or you’ve already read it and want to read the final chapter where Annika and Isabella are at Damien’s Friday night party and he takes the stage to say hello to his guests, here is the song he sang:

 

It’s a sad song, I think. Makes me cry every time I hear it. The video of course has nothing to do with the way I interpreted the lyrics… chronologically first as a representation of Marcellina’s feelings about her father… then as Damien’s lament for Marcellina in the hospice.

God, such a good song!

Thank you, Nickelback. You really outdid yourselves with this one.

Just finished the rough draft of the end of The Cage Sessions

OMG!

I need a Kleenex delivery service. Seriously. I can’t stop crying.

I just finished the rough draft of the climactic scene of Freed: The Cage Sessions Book 5.

It’s a literary mess at the moment… but the raw emotion is what I needed to get down, which I think I’ve done.

The way I look at writing is that if it’s not about the raw emotion, then there’s no point. So I start there.

Like all the best scenes in this series, it just came to me… like Damien, Annika, and Marcellina were telling ME how to end this story.

I’m spent. Punctured. Emptied. My heart is in a giant mass of sun-and-sand splattered particles in the breakdown lane of a highway outside Phoenix. Blue sun. Dry shards of heat. Blazing concrete. (You’ll know what I mean when you read it. You’ll say, “Ah, so that’s what Skylar was talking about that day. Yeah, I get it.”)

The song that has inspired so much of Damien’s struggle, pain and triumph is this one that I keep listening to while I write:

 

Okay, now time to edit and refine. Got to tell their story right. Be in touch.

The Cage Sessions on Pinterest

So yeah I’m hooked on Pinterest. Spent several hours searching for and labeling pics for both THE CAGE SESSIONS and my next series T** S**** A***** which I’ll be announcing soon. (That board is secret right now.) Thought I’d share the one I made for CAGE in lieu of a cover reveal for Book 5 since all the covers are the same:

TheCageSessionsonPinterest

Gina Torres was always my visual role-model for Jasmine Ryder. (Love her on SUITS!) As well as Brooke Kerr for Isabella. I made clear in IMMORAL that Greg Colton is a George Clooney lookalike… so that was a no-brainer.

You may notice I have no pin for Damien Cage. That’s because in my mind he’s an amalgam of two men I know. Or maybe his presence is just so strong that he defies a formal picture. Lol.

FREED: THE CAGE SESSIONS BOOK 5 will be the final chapter in our summer saga. Releases on September 17. Lots of steam left before it ends. Here’s some of what you can expect: A slap in the face. An amazing personal transformation (no, not Jasmine). A confrontation. A surprise guest from the past. An amazing offer. A deadline. A confession. A triumph. A deviant journey of pleasure.

Hehe :)
