Cheyenne McCray fell in love with reading and writing early, deciding in kindergarten that one day she would become an author. Today, she is an award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling fiction author who’s sold millions of books worldwide. Having published more than 100 novels and novellas in contemporary and paranormal romance, urban fantasy and romantic suspense, she is now also writing cozy mysteries as Deb Ries.

Hi Vee!

I just got your message! Excitingly enough, the Wonderland series is being re-released, each one expanded by at least 50 pages! They are published as me writing as Jaymie Holland. The first one Taken by Passion: King of Hearts is now available. Claimed by Pleasure: King of Spades is up for preorder and will be out 3/19, and the other two are also up for pre-order. AND I will be writing a new 5th book in the series, titled Owned by Fire, that readers have been asking for, forever. :) Thanks so much for asking!

Yes, all the books in the Lawmen series will be out on audio. The books are being rereleased with Totally Bound with different covers, but in audio they will still have the original covers. The third book, however, will be almost double in size. It was a novella and is now a full-length novel. They will all be released between now and this summer. :) Oh, and the series will now be "Deadly Intent" instead of "Lawmen." I will keep everyone updated on releases via my newsletter http://bit.ly/CheyennesNewsletter Thanks for reading my books!(less)
