Magic and Mayhem Blast-Off

WE’RE BA-A-A-C-K — AND BETTER THAN EVER!

 

Did you miss us?

When Kindle World shut down, it left a lot of homeless worlds containing a lot of very talented authors with fabulous books.  Robyn Peterman, whom I’m lucky to call a friend, made the decision she wasn’t going to let all her hard work and that of the many authors who wrote in her Magic and Mayhem Universe (formerly World) be put out on the streets.  Thus, she set her prodigious energy and mind on the path to finding us all a new place to cyber-shelve our books.  Thanks to the wonderful folks at Draft2Digital, fans of Magic and Mayhem will now be able to buy the books in all formats, across many retailers, and with world-wide distribution.

Okay, you didn’t miss us, because you have no clue what the Magic and Mayhem Universe is.

I’ll let Robyn Peterman tell you, in her words, what this gig is all about:

What is the Magic and Mayhem Universe, you may ask?

Well, let me explain…

It’s basically authorized fan fiction written by some amazing authors that I stalked and blackmailed! KIDDING! I was lucky and blessed to have some brilliant authors say yes! They have written brand new stories using my world and some of my characters. And let me tell you…the results are hilarious!

So here it is! Blast off with us into the hilarious Magic and Mayhem Universe. Side splitting books by fantabulous authors! Check out each and every one. You will laugh your way to a magical HEA!

For all the stories, go to https://magicandmayhemuniverse.com/. Grab your copy today!

The series that started it all by Robyn Peterman:

My re-release Blast-Off Book:

 

Blurb:

Magical artifacts can be deadly…or seductive, and Amethyst St. John delights in them all. She’s curator for the U.K. Covens’ Magical Artifacts Library, and her magic isn’t the usual run-of-the-mill hocus-pocus. Oh no. With her powers, she can turn the nastiest artifact harmless.

Unfortunately, her magic is useless when her egotistical mother pressures her to marry a depraved aristocrat.  So, when the most powerful witch in the world asks her to present an artifact—a very intimate piece of the infamous wizard Merlin—to their sister city Assjacket, West Virginia, Amethyst jumps at the chance.

Bobcat Shifter Kerr Montgomery, chief detective for Assjacket, has better things to do than meet some British ambassador witch … until he catches Amethyst’s scent. She’s his mate—the one woman who can complete his soul. But his Ammy doesn’t understand mating. And she distrusts men. Even worse, she won’t be in Assjacket long enough to change her mind.

And then someone steals Merlin’s intimate body part. Ammy, aided by Kerr, sets out on a quest to find the artifact. In the process, she discovers what she really wants.

Eye of the Storm is FREE @iBooks

eyecover_240_x_349Yes, the first book in my Security Specialists International is now FREE at iBooks for a limited time only.  So, if you have been putting off buying it, now is your chance to step into the world of my super hot alpha males and their kick-ass women.

Blurb:
Keely Walsh has three doctorates, five older brothers and has never met a situation she couldn’t handle. While consulting with the NSA, she discovers sensitive government information indicating her brother, a private security operative, is in danger. Keely travels to the dangerous Triple Frontier in South America to warn him and his colleagues and finds the last thing she expects–a man who sends icy shivers down her spine even as he lights every one of her fires.
Ren Maddox, co-owner of Security Specialists International, a security firm that works for large corporations and governments, is on an intelligence-gathering mission for the US government when a petite strawberry blonde armed with a Bren Ten and an attitude ten feet tall pops out of the Argentine jungle with a warning of imminent danger. The fact she is one hundred percent correct shocks him to his socks. The fact she is Tweeter Walsh’s baby sister and can fight like the fiercest Marine is beside the point. No one who looks like Keely should ever be in danger. And once he gets her out of the current situation, he’ll make it his life’s work to protect the feisty, sexy, little woman from any and all danger.
One alpha male. One determined and independent female. One hot, tumultuous relationship.

Lust Love and Laptops #Hot for the Holidays Blog Hop

Chris Hemsworth Sexiest ManWelcome to the Love Lust and Laptops #Hot for the Holidays Blog Tour.holiday-blog-hop-button

My hot hunk for the holidays is Chris Hemsworth, People Magazine‘s current Sexiest Man Alive. See the People TV video of Chris to see why this Aussie is so HOT.

Chris is also the inspiration for Stuart Alan Walsh aka Tweeter in Storm Warning, Book 4 of the Security Specialists International Series. So, when reading all the SSI books in which Tweeter is featured, just image the shaggy-haired Chris wearing jeans and a tight T-shirt and you’ll have the perfect mental picture of this alpha-geek hero.

One alpha male. One determined and independent female. One hot, tumultuous relationship.

Excerpt:

“Pepsi, sis?” Tweeter called out from the bar.

“Yes, please.” She opened the bag and found the container with the burger. Opening it, she took a bite and started to chew. “Yuummm.”

Ren laughed at her. He sat next to her, his thigh touching hers. “I’m hungry, too. Can I have a bite?”

Was he teasing her? If he was, it was irresistible. She held her burger up for him. He leaned in closely and his mouth descended, first taking a nip of the tip of a one of her fingers then a bite of the burger from the spot she’d torn into.

“Good—to both bites,” he murmured, licking his lips. His smiling gaze captured hers and held her prisoner.

Tweeter put the Pepsi on the table, breaking the intense connection. “Who wants to order from room service?”

Vanko said, “No need. Teresa is bringing up several of the burgers and some other dishes she thought we big strong men would like.”

“She’s nice—don’t take advantage of her.” Keely eyed Vanko and Tweeter—and then Ren. She wanted to make it clear the Argentinean girl was off-limits. Teresa was too innocent for the likes of these warriors. Vanko was a lady killer. Her brother, all her brothers, had a similar reputation. As for Ren, his files at the FBI and CIA and all his military records classified him as practically a monk. He was acting against type in his recent assiduous care of her, and she found it hard to believe that she was woman enough to change his lifelong relationship patterns.

But as with any statistical pattern, there were always outliers. Outliers were unpredictable and never followed the rules.

“She is a nice girl,” Vanko said. “But she is just that—a girl. I am like a big brother.”

“Uh-huh, pull the other one,” she said around a bit of beef, “she thinks you’re a hunk.”

Vanko laughed. “I am flattered. What do you think, Keelulya?”

“She doesn’t think of you at all.” Ren grabbed her hand and brought her burger back to his mouth, taking another bite.

“Stop eating my food.” She snatched her hand back. “Or … or … I’ll eat some of yours.”

“You can eat anything of mine you’d like.” He winked at her.

She choked, coughed, then blushed, quickly taking a sip of Pepsi. She’d have to reread his files, maybe she’d missed something about him being a rogue—either that or he was the statistic that disproved the numbers.

Tweeter slapped Ren on the back of the head, hard enough for Ren’s head to jerk forward. “Stop talking dirty to my sister.”

“She knows what I meant.” Ren looked at her and smiled. “Isn’t that right, Keely?”

Oh yeah, he was definitely flirting. Her gaze inadvertently drifted to the front of his lightweight trousers. His package made Trujo’s goon’s Baja-sized bulge look dinky. She licked suddenly dry lips and reached again for her soft drink.

“Imp, I’m telling Dad and all the brothers. Stop looking at Ren as if he were Christmas, Easter and your frigging birthday all rolled into one.”

She looked at her brother and stuck her tongue out.

Love in the Cards — The Wheel of Fortune

Love in The Cards (small)My contribution to the Love in the Cards anthology is now up at Love Lust and Laptops blog.

Here is the direct short link:  Story

This story is a slight departure from my  usual contemporary thrillers and scifi romance series.

I would love to explore the subgenere of BDSM in my contemporary suspense.

Please comment and tell me if you would read my romantic thrillers if my  alpha males became even more dominant in the bedroom.

One commenter will receive a FREE download from my back list as Monette Michaels or Rae Morgan.

CONTEST ENDS ON HALLOWEEN!

The SSI Novellas in Print!

MM_StormStories_600x960 Yes, the free novellas, Stormy Weather Baby and Storm Front, will be in print in one volume.  The book is in the proofing stage and once that is completed (in about a week and a half), this print book will be available exclusively at Amazon and its outlets.

Of course, the two novellas are still FREE for download at Liquid Silver Books, and will remain so. But I get requests for print versions and decided to bundle them into one volume.  No changes have been made to the free novellas.

If you haven’t gotten the free downloads from Liquid Silver, it costs nothing to sign up for an account and to download the books.  Here is the link to FREE Books at LSB.

SSI Free Novellas — Now Available in Multiple Formats

I’m happy to announce that both my FREE Security Specialist International Novellas are now available in all major e-book formats at LSbooks.com.MM_SSI_StormyWeatherBaby_250x350

Yes, my publisher, Liquid Silver Books, contacted me and offered to host the FREE downloads on their site so that my SSI readers can get all their SSI fixes in one spot.  Not only did they offer to host, they also had my editor, the fabulous Sharis, go over them with her critical editor’s eye and then the final line editor, the exacting Ezra, followed with another critical read-through.  But the best thing about this deal is the novellas are still FREE, don’t use up bandwidth on my web site (had to double then triple my bandwidth this year alone!), and now are in all formats for the major e-readers.

To download, all you’ll need is a free account at LSbooks.com.

You sign up with a user name and a password (if you don’t have an account already) and then can go to the SSI novellas and download them for free in the format you wish.
