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…

Rowan Summerwaite is ready to finish what she started in Blood and Blade, the next installment in the Goddess with a Blade series by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane.

It’s been only days since Rowan and her friends eliminated the immediate threat to magic users and Vampires, but they’re already back on the hunt. Rowan’s out for vengeance, and she’s never been more driven—or angry. But she’s up against a being stronger than any she’s ever fought. To bring it down she’ll need more than the powers the goddess Brigid gave her…

This time she’ll need her friends, too.

She knows her husband will always have her back. As an ancient Vampire and Scion of North America, Clive has more clout and dominance than almost anyone. Rowan’s small but trusted inner circle insist they’ll join her in the thick of the battle, even as she argues it’s too dangerous for them. She’s also got a new dog. Familiar. Whatever. Star is a magical being put in Rowan’s path to help and protect her.

The hunt for ancient evil takes Rowan and her team to London and back to Las Vegas, bringing with them an unexpected alliance. Fortified by their rage, grief and determination, Rowan and her friends will stop at nothing when they track their enemy to the high desert in a final, deadly showdown.

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 »

Write Your Blurb

Hee! I got the “start thinking about your blurb and excerpt” email from my editor at EC late last night. While I hate writing blurbs, I do like this end of the edit cycle that signals that the book is … Read More »

Finished With My TOF Edits

Just as soon as I’d sent those in, I checked my email and my edits for Second Chances were in my inbox, LOL. It’s pouring! This is good though, I’ve been thinking about Second Chances a lot lately and I’m … Read More »
