We are one step closer to publication on Dante’s Angel. I spent time yesterday getting everything formatted, title page, copyright page, etc., finished, and all that sort of thing. Now we’re just waiting for the cover art.

Why is it that no matter what sort of image I need for my couple, there is anything else besides what I’m looking for?

So stay tuned for cover reveal and release date!

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 points out his very single status. He has trouble 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 that they are soul mates.

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.

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–

      to Share the Romance…

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!

Well, it has been sent off to the publisher. Dante’s Angel, that is. Here’s hoping they love it and it will be a huge success.

Gambler’s Folly is a pleasure center in the galaxy. Whatever you want, you can find there, whether it’s gambling, beaches, mountains. Exciting times or relaxing times, you can find it on Gambler’s Folly.

But like anyplace else, there is a darker underside to this pleasure paradise–the syndicate. Many of the syndicate members function on the wrong side of the law, bringing in drugs and other illegal substances and practices.

One of the most dangerous players is Damiano Leone, owner of the Stella d’Oro and other enterprises on Gambler’s Folly. Only he isn’t quite what he seems. Or perhaps he’s even more. His wife and mate he won from her husband on one hand of cards. The man had run up a debt of over a million credits. This was his way out. If he won, he kept his wife, his debts were cleared, and he would leave on the next shuttle out.

But if he lost–which he did–though his debts were still cleared, his wife, Karianna,  became the possession of Damiano Leone.

Ah, yes. That exciting world of Gambler’s Folly. Anything you could ask for, if you can afford it.

Book 2 from Gambler’s Folly, Dante’s Angel,  is with the editor. This book picks up just after Book 1 ends. Dam and Kari are traveling to Earth for the big family and church wedding. Marco, Paulo, and Dante are going as well.

Youngest of the group, Dante has no girlfriend at present, and the wedding only serves to emphasize this point. Little does he know that Damiano’s feisty cousin, Angela, awaits him in the Italian countryside.

Book 3 will be The Russian. Dmitri Ivanovich Volkov arrives on Gambler’s Folly to work with Damiano’s division of Interpol. During a walk before dinner, he rescues a young lady from a gang and walks her home. But her scent has wrapped him around its finger, so to speak,  and their kiss is unbelievable. But he doesn’t need a mate.

He tells the story to Dam and Kari over dinner, none of them realizing that the Danni he rescued is the same Danni who works in Accounts for  the Speranza office of Interpol.

Book 4 will be Old Flame. Four years after her husband’s death, Elizabeth travels to visit their daughter and son for her birthday and is surprised by an all expenses paid month of vacation on Gambler’s Folly. It is time to move on, they figure, and what better way than to get off-world for a while?

As she sits down to dinner at the hotel on the first evening of her journey, she is accosted by a man demanding the $10,000 her husband owes him. Coming to her rescue is a man she never thought she’d see again–Kort Behrens.  They were friends at university, but haven’t seen each other in thirty years. He invites her to his table to talk over old times and new. It turns out he is heading to Gambler’s Folly on business.

And when he says business, he mean it. He is now CEO of Behrens International as heir to his father’s empire. What he doesn’t disclose is that he also sidelines with Interpol. His trip to Gambler’s Folly is to follow up a lead on counterfeit aircraft parts. He’ll be working with Damiano and the gang while sorting out things with this woman who seems to be his mate…

And the book that began the series?

GAMBLER’S FOLLY!

 [Paranormal Fantasy Romance, mainstream sensual, futuristic, shifters.]

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?
