I’m so excited about my American Icons stories, and I can’t wait to share them!
American Icons is a series of vignettes featuring journalist Ryker Shane as he travels the country writing about the Alpha men we all love – those sexy archetypes that send our hearts racing and our blood boiling. With each article he writes, Ryker discovers up close and personal exactly why these American Icons turn us on…and on…and on….
Story #2, The Rock Star is available HERE NOW, exclusively at Amazon.
Story #1, The Cowboy, is available HERE at a new, reduced price of $1.49, also exclusively at Amazon for Kindle.
So, I’ve rhapsodized about the amazing Black Gold by Clancy Nacht and Thursday Euclid. And I’m sure I’ve mentioned one of the highlights of GRL 2012 was getting my very own Jett Black guitar string bracelet. So, knowing that Black Gold 2 is out there, just waiting, and it’ll be a good week before it’s in my hot little hands, steaming up my Nook? Torture.
But, my torture is your good fortune. Get thee HERE, to Loose Id, and buy thee the book. If you haven’t read Black Gold, the original? What the hell is wrong with you??? Buy thee that, too! Then read them. And tell me how awesome they are. Because if *I* can’t read it yet, at least I’ll know *you* are reading it!
Did I mention P.L. Nunn’s wicked awesome cover art? Cuz, OMG!
Love from me (and THEM) to you!

One of my all time versions of a classic…
Chris Cornell – Ave Maria
(from A Very Special Christmas 3)
Doesn’t hurt that he’s damned pretty, does it?
Sierra and I were extremely fortunate to have the stunning Angelo Riguero on the cover of our first Longfellow novel, Longfellow Seduced. We were also lucky enough to spend time with him at Ellora’s Cave’s RomantiCon – both of us last year and me, solo, the previous years. He was a warm, friendly person, incredibly approachable, and with a knack for making a woman feel desirable without being skeezy. I was horrified and heartbroken to hear that he was shot outside a bar in Dallas, while apparently trying to break up a fight. This is so wrong on so many levels. I’m almost beyond words. I’ll have something a bit more elegant in the next day or so but for now, I’ll let pictures speak for me.
Angelo and Sierra – Romanticon 2011
Angelo and Bladerunner Barbie, er, VJ.
Rest with angels, Angelo.
I was very happily surprised a couple days ago when I found out Z.A. Maxfield had a new release coming 9/4. I was even HAPPIER when I saw on her Goodreads party page that it’s live! now! HERE!
Gasp! looks amazing, an “aging” (I use quotes cuz, dammit, I’m older than Nigel) rock star, a war vet, and it’s by Z.A. Maxfield. What more could I want?
I could want a new book by Jet Mykles.
And I got one!
Finally, finally, finally Champion, the sequel to Squire (and book 2 in the Indigo Knights series, which is a spin off of the fantastic Heaven Sent series) is out. And I didn’t know *it* was coming, either! I found it when I went to the Loose-Id homepage to order Gasp!
So, tomorrow, instead of brooding over NOT going back to school for the first time in 12 years, I’ll be wallowing in fantastic fiction – Gasp!, Champion, and a brief interlude with Squire to get back up to speed.
THANK YOU, ladies!
So, Longfellow Seduced is out at Ellora’s Cave (get it HERE) and Cat gave it the most awesome customer review! It totally made Sierra’s Thursday, and it started my Friday on a totally high note! Thanks, Cat! (Exit VJ, the validation whore, lol).
Now back to preparations for the EDJ, a little happier than I was fifteen minutes ago! And, here’s more Angelo, just to keep the happy going!
Okay, you can’t see his face in this one, but this is last year’s RomantiCon, where he was more or less DJ for the par-tay part of the evenings. This pic, besides showing some fucking amazing muscles, reminds me a little of Magnus – love a guy who knows how to play the crowd!
THIS one’s from RomantiCon 2010. Angelo is signing the cover flat of Joey W. Hill’s Branded Sanctuary – which features him looking pretty damned glorious (fitting, as it’s a pretty damned glorious book – READ IT if you haven’t – it’s het/BDSM/hurt-comfort/friends-to-lovers/amazing). And that’s the equally glorious Joey W. Hill with him. This is another Magnus picture – autograph sighing and all.
And if I’m gonna pimp Joey, I’ll mention Rough Canvas. It was my first BDSM, my first m/m, and it literally changed my life. Seriously – one of the best books I’ve ever read, *always* on my Nook, and one of about three I go to whenever I’m jammed up. I wasn’t at all surprised to find Joey a wonderful person, not after reading Rough Canvas.
Happy Friday, Everyone!
Longfellow Seduced will be available at Ellora’s Cave!
I’ve subjected (snort) you to the most gorgeous, awesome cover MANY times, so this time I’ll just subject you to a picture of Angelo and my other half, Sierra Summers:
Longfellow Seduced is straight het (hee, hee, I’m so damned PUNNY), but it’s wicked hot, has a rocker vampire with all the charisma and none of the couth of Lestat, and has a kick-ass forensic accountant who may be little, but is FIERCE! I hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it!
