For what?

The Russian!

Release date is January 24 and it is available for pre-order at both Amazon and Smashwords!

What is The Russian?

This is the Book 3 from Gambler’s Folly, following Gambler’s Folly and Dante’s Angel.

Gambler’s Folly is a pleasure world, where you can find just about anything you’d like. Do you love life in the fast lane, the city lights, and casinos? Check out Speranza, the capital city.

Beaches? Go to Black Sands or Piaggia Sole.

There is year round skiing as well as mountain cabins and fresh air.

Added to this background are my casts of characters, shifters who work for one of Interpol’s special departments. They help track down contraband and a host of other things that come their way.

But one thing they don’t have to look for is romance. Several of our people have found their soul mates here, with more coming to join their ranks.

If you haven’t read the first two books, go on over to Amazon or Smashwords and check them out. Then you’ll be ready for The Russian!

Gambler’s FollyA pleasure world where the games are dangerous and the stakes are high.

It’s another Friday, the first full week of the New Year. How is everyone today?

My husband had a total knee replacement on New Year’s Eve, so things have been a little strange around here. But he’s doing well, up and around, mostly off his painkillers.

And I have a book to get out to all of you! I’m waiting for the final edits so I can get it formatted and then out to you!

I’ve told you a little about Dmitri, the Russian. But have I told you anything about the woman who steals his heart?

Danielle, Danni to her friends, is a young, petite blond with hazel eyes. She does pretty well working in the accounting department of Gambler’s Folly’s Interpol. But she can’t quite get enough together to find a place big enough so she and her mother can move in together. And expenses keep growing.

Her mother lives in a bad part of town, in the place she and Danni’s father had lived since they’d moved to Gambler’s Folly. But then the syndicate bought everything all around, and now owned the building her apartment was in.

Danni visited her mother every evening after work, and was always nervous walking home. She had to find a way to get her mother out of there.

And then her fears came to visit one night. On her way home, just as the sun was going down, a group of gang member surrounded her on the dark, empty street. In her heart of hearts, she knew she was going to die, until she felt warm, strong hands on her shoulders, and heard a stern voice telling the young men to disperse.

Watch for The Russian at Amazon and at Smashwords!

Wishing you all the very best New Year!

I don’t know what it’s like where you live, but it is a chilly one here today in America’s Southeast. In the low 40’s with a light rain which has been falling since last night, it is hard to get motivated.

But on an up note, the third book in the Gambler’s Fooy series, The Russian, will be coming out soon! Watch for news of its release.

And my NaNoWriMo project, Whiskey Jug Genie, is coming along nicely. I have the ending in sight. Now if I can just get there… These characters. Always interfering in my plot line.

So after I have a bite to eat and check on the fire, I’ll be here at my desk checking in with Martin and Bubba to see what’s going on in their shop in the suburbs of London.

Is the romance between Martin and Diane going to grow stronger?

Is the wizard who was causing all the trouble going to escape?

Or will he get what’s coming to him?

Well, I think I know the answers to those questions, but I’ll have to see what our fearless trio has in mind.

In the meantime, stay warm, stay happy, and stay safe.

A piu tardi…

No, no. Nothing like that. The cold war is over, folks.

I’m talking about wolf-shifter Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov, aka The Russian around Interpol’s Special Division.

Over 500 years old, he’s seen a lot, been a lot of places, and learned a lot of things. And one thing he knows–soulmates are once in a lifetime, and he’s already had his chance.

He’d mated with Ilyana a little over 200 years ago, and after 50 years of marriage, she died in his arms, taking his heart with her to the grave. Since then, he has hunted through the universe alone, neither seeking nor accepting any long-term relationships.

But maybe the universe is giving him a second chance, with a little blond she-wolf named Danni, with the most beautiful hazel eyes. And her scent.

Danni’s family was from Earth, but she’d lived on Gambler’s Folly most of her life. After her father died, she’d taken care of her mother, but money was tight. She couldn’t afford another place big enough for both of them, but the rent on her mother’s apartment kept going up.

And now tonight, on her way home from checking on her mother, she’d been surrounded by gang members. Terrified, she was sure she was going to die, until strong, warm hands settled on her shoulders and dispersed the young men.

He insisted on walking her home, but his woodsy, musky scent pulled her mind in another direction.

No, she didn’t have time for a relationship. There was her mother to think of, and needed to put aside enough to get them out of their current situation. But as she turned to say good bye, she simply had to feel his kiss, which was her undoing.

Neither of them want a relationship. Neither of them is seeking a mate. But Mother Nature has other plans for them. Can they open their hearts to the possibility of love?

Watch for The Russian–Gambler’s Folly Book 3–coming out later this month.

Yes, I know. I’ve been gone for a while. Between internet issues and doing a re-edit on several books I have the rights back for, it has been a little busy, with not much news.

But, later this month, you should see links for the re-release of Gambler’s Folly, Jareth, First Lord, and Viviane, First Lady. They all have new covers and have been re-edited for re-release. I’ll be publishing all of them as an indie author this time, so watch Smashwords and Amazon for them.

I also hope to release Gambler’s Folly Book 3–The Russian later this month. I think you’ll like the Russian. He’s a little rough around the edges, but he has been around for quite a while. And that’s enough to make anyone a little thick-skinned.

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man and DANTE’S ANGEL are already available through Smashwords, with new covers. MASTER OF THE FLEET has also had a facelift.

So ready for a peek at the new covers?

See you again soon!

It has been beautiful here for the past few days. Milder temperatures, sunshine, and lovely warm breezes sweeping through the trees and the bamboo around the house.

The type of weather that is a taste of heaven on earth.

It looks like we might be heading back for rainy weather in a day or two, though, which is fine. The tomatoes will enjoy the drink and the bath.

In the meantime, I’ve been writing a few words on Lady Calloway, to be published under Sultonna Nadine, and editing on The Trouble with Talents, the next book from Esperance.

So while I’ve doing some fiddling with these two books, I’ve been trying to figure out book covers. Always a chore. It seems no matter what I’m looking for, I can find anything else. (sigh)

Anyhow, here’s hoping you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far, and will continue the trend.

How about a brief excerpt?

Lady Calloway–

A man expects a few niceties when he gets home, and a proper kiss from his wife is one of them.”

“Why are you going on so much about a kiss? You know I love you.”

“Do I?” Kerrick asked, exasperated. “And how am I supposed to know that? Your kisses are sisterly at best, unless I press the issue. And in our bed, half the time I feel I’m committing rape. You agree to sleep with me, but show no passion for me. Can you even feel passion?”

Suddenly wanting to know if she could show anything at all, he pulled her to him roughly, one arm firmly around her waist, the other twined in her hair turning her face to his. He kissed her savagely at first, his mouth hard on hers, demanding, before his kiss became more sensual. At first she tried to struggle free, and then, for a brief moment, he felt the beginnings of awakening arousal, before she stiffened into her usual stance—endurance.

“Don’t, Kerrick,” she pleaded with him as he released her. “Please, never do that again. I can’t bear it.”
