Yes, it is that time of year again.   That wonderful time of year when we honor those women in our lives who mean so very much to us. And mother’s do so much, it would be difficult to put a value on their contributions.

What are you plans for Mother’s Day? And what are you getting the women in your life?

I know chocolate and flowers, family BBQ’s and the like are pretty standard. Or maybe going out to someplace special for dinner with the family.

What about something she can enjoy again and again?

How about a book?

There are several authors I love. You might want to check out their writing. And of course, mine as well…

Vonnie Davis does romantic intrigue. You can find out more about her books at: http://www.vonniedavis.com.

I also love Angel Nicholas, who also writes sexy romantic intrigue.

And of course, Mellie Miller–yours truly–with fantasy romance, often with a paranormal twist.

So if your Mom is a reader, someone who likes a bit of spice and romance, check out some of my favorites. See if there is something there she might like.

Have a Happy and Safe Mother’s Day everyone!

And don’t forget–

With Dante’s Angel sent off to the publisher, I’ve gone back to Gambler’s Folly for a third book. The Russian will be the third book in the series.

In this book, we meet Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov, a wolf-shifter so old he doesn’t remember exactly how old he is. He grew up, at least in part, in what used to be Russia, back on old Earth. He’s on Gambler’s Folly tracking an illegal drug shipment.

Two hundred years ago, his soul mate died and he swore he would never take a mate again. It was much too difficult to lose someone who was that close to you.

But what do you do when you  meet another soul mate? Shouldn’t there only be one to a lifetime?

Excerpt:

“If it hadn’t been for her scent, he would have been fine. The lilacs with honeyed-vanilla and white musk scent wrapped around him softly. Hazel eyes under blonde curls had drawn him in. He’d thought, after all this time, he would have control over his urges. What had possessed him to kiss her?

Her mouth, now. There was a treat. Fresh raspberries and sweet white wine still teased his palette. Between her scent and her taste, he was one messed up wolf. He wanted to run through the forest, roll in the leaves, and howl to his pack mates about this delicious female he’d met.

It was good he wouldn’t see her again. He didn’t need a mate. Life around him was too uncertain. Besides, he’d had a mate long ago and, when she’d died, she’d taken his heart with her.

No. He was here for a job. He had no time for females.”

So, in the meantime, if you haven’t read Gambler’s Folly, now’s’ your chance! It’s available at Amazon in both eBook and paperback.

Dante’s Angel will be out later this year, so watch for it!

Now it’s time for me to get back to work and see what the crazy Russian is up to.

Have a great weekend!

Watch for what, you ask?

Book 2 from Gambler’s Folly–Dante’s Angel!

Here’s the blurb.

Dante wouldn’t have missed his boss’s wedding for the world, but he’s never been off his home planet, Gambler’s Folly. And attending the wedding only aggravates his very single status. Dante doesn’t date much. He has trouble even asking a woman out for dinner. What must it be like to meet your soul mate?

But Dante’s troubles haven’t even begun until he meets Damiano’s cousin, Angela. A bit on the wild side, and with quite the attitude, their initial meeting leaves them both irritated. But their second meeting in the olive grove leaves them breathless, as they try to figure out how to break the news to the family.

Follow the two of them as they struggle to hold it together until they can be properly married in church—in a double wedding with Dam and Kari—to keep the family happy.

 

Excerpt:

“But before we go our own ways,” he began before pulling her closer and forking his fingers up through her hair, “I would like to settle the question.”

“What question?” she asked.

Leaning closer, his hand in her hair suggested she turn her face up toward his. With his lips nearly touching hers, he waited for her permission, which she gave him by pressing up on her toes to close the distance.

Yes, her lips were as delicious as he’d hoped, like ripe cherries and sweet wine. His kiss lingered, wishing it would never end. Her taste combined with her scent made his head whirl. And he was not prepared for her lips to part and for the tip of her tongue to invite him in.

Finally parting, they gazed at each other in astonishment. “Dio! What are we going to do?” Angela asked, searching his face.

Dante’s AngelGambler’s Folly Series, Book 2

Book 1–Gambler’s Folly

While vacationing on Gambler’s Folly with her husband, Trae, Karianna O’Brien’s life is ripped apart when he loses her to Damiano Leone in a game of chance. Within two days, she is divorced, widowed, and married to Damiano, the darkly desirable, powerful and dangerous lord of the underworld.

Irresistibly drawn to Damiano, Karianna enters a world of wealth and glamour in his casinos, while he teaches her the meaning of pleasure and sensuality in his bed. Though married to Trae for four years, she’s never experienced true seduction, or sex so exquisite it could become an addiction. Is he really human, or something else?

As Damiano’s enemies threaten Karianna to leverage his vote in the syndicate, he gambles all he’s worth in a dangerous game of skill. Will his plans pay off in time to save Karianna? Or will he lose both his business and his soul mate?

It hadn’t started out that way, but after three books published and at least three more to go, Jareth, First Lord has turned into Esperance, The Series.

JARETH, FIRST LORD Book 1

This is where it all started. Jareth, psychic ruler of his clan, lost his wife in childbirth. With no heir, he must seek a new partner, but after two years, isn’t sure he’s ready.

Viviane, youngest daughter of a neighboring first lord, is a widow, after her husband was killed in a fall. Struggling to survive on her own, she isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to open her heart to love again.

Traveling to the neighboring clan to settle a dispute, Jareth is drawn to the dark-haired beauty in the crowd. Choosing her as part of the spoils, he has no idea she is related to the ruling house.

Viviane is relieved to be chosen. Her other option was to move home, back to the clan seat. And that would never do. She wanted nothing to do with first families. Imagine her dismay when she learns Jareth hopes to make her his First Lady.

VIVIANE, FIRST LADY Book 2

After their marriage, Viviane struggles to control those psychic Talents brought out by the stresses of the previous year. On top of it all, she and Jareth will have to go to her brother’s trial, bringing even more stress to her life.

But if these Talents are frustrating during the day, they do make her evenings with Jareth more exciting…

MORGAN–THE PIXIE AND THE GREEN MAN Book 3

Morgan’s life has not been an easy one. Abused by her father and molested by an uncle, she is glad Jareth came to her clan and asked for volunteers for the Choosing.

But a few short months after moving to Clan Brannach, she is assaulted by one of the young men of the clan. Rescued from what was certainly going to be rape and possibly murder, she is completely off the idea of love and romance.

Until she meets James…

James Ferguson fell in love the first time he saw Morgan–which was when he helped rescue her. Having given her time to recover, he hopes to date her and make her his wife.

But how can he win her heart if she won’t even have a cup of tea with him?

What’s next?

TALENTS–THE STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL

This continues Viviane’s story, and brings in the story of her nephew, Connell, who will be the heir to Clan Belfort.

So go check out Esperance,  world of hopes and dreams, with psychically talented rulers, and women with minds of their own. A place where romance is in the air, from the lush forests to the majestic mountains.

Come share the Romance…
