After a little bit of a hiatus, the next Goddess With a Blade book – WRATH OF THE GODDESS is now available in digital and audio formats! Print will release on June 25.

 

 

 

Rowan Summerwaite is back—and more than a little pissed off—in Wrath of the Goddess, the fifth installment in New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane’s Goddess with a Blade series.

You can’t keep a vengeful woman down for long.

Rowan Summerwaite, elite hunter and human vessel to the goddess Brigid, has returned home to Las Vegas—and she’s mad as hell. It seems someone thought they could eliminate Rowan and everyone she holds dear.

That someone was dead wrong.

With tensions between paranormal factions at an all-time high, Rowan and her crew, along with her sexy Vampire Scion husband, Clive Stewart, have their work cut out for them. The Vampire Nation has at least one traitor in their midst, leaving them extremely vulnerable…but if it’s a war they want, Rowan’s prepared to bring the pain like never before.

Rowan knows her duty is to those she’s sworn to protect, but it seems the harder she fights, the more barriers she hits…and the more friends she loses.

With even her closest alliances in question, Rowan will have to accept that sometimes the path toward the greater good means making heartrending sacrifices along the way…

What I’m Loving – November 18 Edition

I drink tea all day long while I’m working. I try to go decaf or herbal after eleven or noon. The process is a ritual for me and I love rituals! I love to get up from my desk, wander into my kitchen, turn on the kettle and then I go stare at all my tea (my dude is also a huge tea drinker so about a third of my pantry is all tea). Last week on a whim, I picked up a tin of Harney and Sons “Paris” tea and it’s quickly become my mid morning tea break. It’s black tea with some vanilla and fruity notes and it’s fantastic with a bit of sugar and some milk.

A long time (like 15 years) favorite is TAZO’s decaf chai. I buy a ridiculous number of boxes in bulk because it has very little licorice/anise in it and most other brands have a lot more which to my taste, makes it more sweet than spicy and I like the spicy best. And because it’s decaf, I can drink it in the afternoon (with milk).

Sometimes tea can be like that lipstick you love that gets discontinued (WOE!). Such is the case with one of my all time favorites from Trader Joe’s, Berries and Cherries – a nice fruity tea that doesn’t need anything more than hot water and time to be extra yummy. I have two bags left in the tin in my pantry because I want to keep them for a special occasion.

Do you all like tea? What are some of your favorites?

Public Persona (warning, graphic words for the no no place ahead)

So, I think the hardest thing for me in this whole journey into writing professionally is the management of my public persona.

You see, I’m a mouthy, opinionated broad. I know! Shocking! I know it doesn’t seem that way at … Read More »

A Thank You Note

I should be editing but I’m taking a break for diet coke with lime, some sweetpea snaps and a note to say that I’ve read Nora Roberts’ and Jennifer Crusie’s statements about the ridiculous script for the RWA’s RITA ceremonies … Read More »

Gabbing

Okay, so I was a good little writer last night and edited my ass off. Tightened things up, got rid of superflous stuff, narrowed focus, that sort of thing.

Second Chances has a BDSM storyline. But that sentence is limiting. … Read More »

Monday, Monday, Monday

So my muse tricked me and I ended up with something new in Dark Justice. It complicates things but at the same time, it deepens the story and opens the door up for some world building for the vamp series … Read More »

Yep, More Blather Per Pound Than Comparable Authors…

The baby is walking. Which means she doesn’t want to sleep lest she miss something.

In any case, I got 2,000 words written in Dark Justice last night. Something snuck in on the alley confrontation scene and it moves the … Read More »

Yadda Yadda Yadda, Blah Blah Blah

I didn’t get one bit of writing done yesterday. Or, rather, I didn’t work on Dark Justice nor did I do any editing. Instead, I sat in front of my TV starting at 7 and watched Firefly through Battlestar Galactica. … Read More »

Grrr!

Sigh. It gets old, having to defend what I do. I get attacked on one side from other romance authors who accuse me of being a pornographer, of dragging the genre down with my very presence, of writing women who, … Read More »

Further Proof That Small Minds are Right…

I’m going to talk about threesome scenes. Scandalized yet? No? Good, I knew I liked you.

So anyway, I like writing menage books. And my readers like to read them. Still, I try to inject realism in my menages, if … Read More »
