The title was an easy choice because Julie, my heroine, was a side character in another book, Rough Canvas, back in 2007, and she's waited all these years for her hero to step forward. His name is Desmond Hayes and he's a roofer by trade and a rigger (rope guy) in the BDSM world. I can't wait to share their story with everyone!(less)

Right no…moreMorgan, I'm sure I will, because I enjoy the male/male dynamic both on its own and as a vital component of threesomes (two male, one female)! Right now I have Rough Canvas (contemporary) and Night's Templar (paranormal) as my "strictly male/male" stories, as well as a follow up free novella on Marcus and Thomas's relationship. It's called First Christmas and, as you can guess, is about their first Christmas together (grin). If you haven't read that one, it's a free download at the JWH Connection fan forum, access info here - You may have read all three of those, but I wanted to make sure you knew what was available.

I have a couple male/male ideas percolating in my head for future books. In the Vampire Queen series, there's a vampire with a wolf shifter servant that was introduced in Night's Templar, so I'm sure I'll be writing a story about Cai and Rand in the future. And I have another standalone contemporary I might put with the Nature of Desire series, my catch all for contemporary D/s relationships that don't fit anywhere else (lol). anyhow, no timetable for these quite yet, but as soon as I know when I'll be doing them, you all will hear about it through website (In the Works page), fan forum, FB and Twitter for sure! Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks for asking. :>(less)

Vampires and Cowboys: A Q&A with Desiree Holt

A few years back, the fabulous author Desiree Holt had a great idea that brought together my vampires and her cowboys. Nightfall became a standalone title in my Vampire Queen series.

“A female vampire walks into a bar…” sounds like the start of a party joke, but when Selena walked into the bar and met Quinn, the alpha male cowboy who owned the bar and seriously needed a manager, it became intense

I wouldn’t really classify this book as erotic romance. It’s more women’s fiction, with some very well-done erotic scenes integrated at the proper times with the unforgettable hero, Harlan. Most of it is a first-person exploration of one th
