A Hard Kept Secret

can finally be revealed. Man, it was tough not sharing the news. I’ve been biting my tongue and sitting on my fingers for months now.

A dream of mine has finally come true. At WHSmith stores across the UK you’ll find one of my books proudly on display. When Totally Bound (my publisher for both Bound to Justice and Desired Discipline) partnered with WHSmith, I was one of only 40 authors they included in this first launch. I’m truly touched and honored.

If only we lived there. I would love to walk into a brick and mortar store and see my work. Oh well, just knowing that it’s there is enough to bring a tear to my eye.

For those of you that live in the UK, please check it out one of their 96 stores. If you’re so inclined, take a picture for me! As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Whether you’re able to check it out in person or not, let me know what you think of the new cover for Against the Rules. I love it. It’s been so hard not to post it and share it with all of you.

Editor’s Choice

Woo Hoo! Against the Rules was chosen as Editor’s Choice at Totally Bound publishing. As the first book in the Bound for Justice series hits the market, I couldn’t be more pleased.

This one is a bit longer than my other books at slightly over 300 pages. It’s darker too. I doubt anyone will consider it a ‘sweet read’ as some of my other stories have been labeled. In some ways, I’ll be honest, it’s disturbing. The antagonist has a way of popping into your head when you least expect it.

This week only, it’s on sale for $3.99. After the 14th it will be back at $6.50m so if you’re into criminal suspense and romance check it out soon.

What do you hope reader’s take away from this retelling of your story?

That everyone is redeemable, and that you never truly know what’s going on behind the scenes.

That can be a hard lesson to learn. What is one thing your storyteller got right?

The bond I have with my twin sister, Azure, even when I thought it was gone.

Who would you want to play you in a movie-retelling of your story? Who would play your love interest?

I think Sara Paxton would do a great job playing me. For Ryan, I think Ryan Gosling.

Your storyteller told some pretty embarrassing tales about you. Is there any secrets you’d like to share about them?

Liam Wilder, my sister’s husband, bears a strong resemblance to a celebrity my storyteller loves, but she hardly ever admits it because she thinks it looks weird.

Pick a scene in your story. What song is playing in the background?

My first hot encounter in Ryan’s cabin. He had the Savage Garden song “Break Me Shake Me” playing on the radio. God, I love that song.

If price was no consequence, what gift would you buy your love interest?

The best quality surfboard I could find. He loves to surf in his spare time.

At what moment did you know you were in love?

It wasn’t until he said it himself. I’m not a person who falls in love easily, or at all, in fact, so I was never going to admit it to myself otherwise.

Tara Thornton hasn’t spoken to her sister in two years, ever since Azure married the man of Tara’s dreams. Tired of the rift, Azure invites her to take a Mediterranean cruise on a friend’s yacht and, bowing to family pressure, Tara accepts.

Forced to be in close proximity with the man she still desires, Tara is thrown into confusion. The presence of celebrity theme park owner Liam Wilder and the reality of his marriage to Azure send Tara into a tailspin and, in an attempt to regain control, she responds to the advances of hot fellow guest Ryan Hyde, while determined to feel no affection for him.

But Ryan has a way of getting under her skin, and Tara’s plan to get closer to Liam is rapidly losing its importance as Ryan begins to break down her defences. Can she let go of Liam, let Ryan into her heart…and tell Azure the real reason for her silence?

Have you checked out the Spellbound series by Erik Clarke?

Powerful men, bound to one another by the common thread running through their veins— magic. In a world of Dreamwalkers, Elementals, Vamps, and any number of other beings, torrid sex as hot and dangerous as an Incubus is certainly one thing found in abundance. But the quest for true love can be a little rough, and that’s putting it lightly.

Brought together by their desire for one another and the spells of powers they wield, unlikely pairs discover the wonders of relationships that have a healthy dose of magic on the side. And when sex, sin, and supernatural powers are all put on a collision course, the results will leave you spellbound.

What’s not to love?

His latest Wonder is now available for early download.

To find out the truth and join with his Vampire mate, Blake may have to pay a steep price—his sanity.

It’s not that Blake Hollister doesn’t want to be the mate of the town’s resident hottie Vampire, Adam Harkin—just the opposite. With everything else in his life going to hell, that’s the one thing that Blake wants more than anything. But fate has other ideas. Blake is Dormant, meaning his magical powers never manifested when he came of age, leaving him doomed to be forever connected with magic, but never able to access it. Sex between magical beings and non-magics is risky at first and becomes exponentially more dangerous, and Adam isn’t willing to harm his mate, effectively pausing their relationship until some solution can be found.

At the same time, darker things are manifesting in Kelvin. Secrets buried in the ruins of the town’s old amusement park, Wonderworld, threaten to destroy the fragile peace. And when Blake finally convinces Adam to give sex a shot despite the risk, the destructive effects on his mind that he tries to hide threaten to drive him insane. Blake’s once structured life begins to shatter—days turn into fractured memories of events he can’t be sure really occurred, a broken slideshow of nightclubs, theme parks, and torrid sex. Dreams and reality, past and present, betrayal and loyalty are all on a collision course, and at the center stands the mercury-eyed fantasy whom Blake is beginning to think he might love—if the long-forgotten truth about Adam’s brutal change from human to Vampire doesn’t turn the entire town against each other first…

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of exhibitionism, violence and torture.

What a way to start the week!

I woke up this morning a little blurry eyed. It was a whirlwind weekend where I accomplished very little work, but enjoyed time with my family. This morning I need to hit the book hard and get Brett and Alexa to their happily ever after. While I was making breakfast for my husband and packing a few healthy snacks for him to munch on throughout the day, I was surfing the web. What do I find? Both Bondage Wedding and Erik’s book, Night, have hit the bestseller list!

Night is at number three on the M/M list and Bondage Wedding has debuted at eighteen. I was checking the list because I suspected my son had made it. We knew from the Amazon sales ranks, he was kicking butt. However, I was floored to see Bondage Wedding on the M/F list. It hasn’t even hit the major markets yet. It goes out to Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the likes on the twenty-first.

I’m so excited. If you were following my blog when I wrote James and Amanda’s story, you know I loved them both. They were a persistent pair, constantly invading my thoughts. I didn’t have a single moments peace, but I like that. I remember going to Williams, Arizona on a day trip with the family. The whole way there, I had my laptop out and was writing. At lunch, I had my notebook in hand jotting down more ideas. While the kids were in the woods tossing a football around, I was laying under the shade of a tree working. The kids still tease me about it.

To those of you who have already bought the book, I thank you. You’ve certainly made my dreams come true!
