How about I talk a little about some upcoming series?


Hurley Boys – I get a lot of email after people finish up with LUSH and want to know if I’ll be writing books for Damien’s brothers.  I DO plan to write them books, yes. My agent has a proposal out right now for a series based on the Hurley Boys – a book for Paddy, Ezra and Vaughan. I’m hoping to have more detailed news very soon (as in, I hope I can tell you the series got contracted and a general timeline!)


Warners – Likewise, I get mail about Levi and Jonah’s brothers and if I’ll write books for them.  I do love Mal, Eli, Toby and I would like to do books for them in the future. Right now, I’ve got an upcoming series and a few others in the works and I don’t want to spread myself so thin I burn out so I don’t have any dates, but yes, it is something I want to do and hope to do within the next few years.


INK AND CHROME – This is my next series with Berkley Heat and it’s a contemporary erotic romance series set in Seattle’s hottest custom build hotrod and motorcycle shop, Twisted Steel. Lots of bad boys with tats, piercings who work with their hands and live a very wild life.  The first book, THE LONG HAUL will be out in August of 2014 and features Duke, one of the owners of the shop and Carmela, his neighbor and the woman he hires to handle the accounts payable and receivable in the shop. The second and third books will be out in January and May of 2015 respectively)


These are all contemporary series and I do have a parnormal series out on pitch right now. Something I’m super excited about, but I don’t want to jinx it just yet. I do hope to have news on that soon as well!


EDITED TO ADD – since I get asked this one so often and people miss the answer – for UK folks who’ve been asking me about the kindle availability of my Berkley books – They tell me their process will now be a three month delay from the US release to kindle release in the UK.

    So excited for those Hurley boys!!! I’ve read the Brown/Delicious novels several times, and they are some of my all-time favorite books 🙂 I also love how you entwine the past characters so that we are able to keep up with them as well. Can’t wait to read on! 🙂

    I so hope the Hurley Brothers series gets contracted because I fell in love with those guys. Right now though I’m waiting anxiously for Rowan, the Scion and Theo.

    @Robbye cheers. Have tried numerous times iand suppliers, including a few min ago & always says only avail in paperback or audio . I find this with a few authors & It might just be because we’re in Oz. they often take a lot longer with some books for some reason 🙁 might just have to get the paperback.

    I really hope both the Hurley Brothers and the Warner’s get contracted. The brown Siblings and Delicious are two of my all-time favorite series. I have read and reread them, and recommended them to my friends!! 🙂
