Welcome to Sawtooth Shifters!

Hey Everyone! You may have noticed I was a little quiet all summer with releases. You know it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for. I’m excited to reveal what I’ve been up to. Meet the wolves of Sawtooth Forest and the ladies of Forever Home Animal Shelter.

sawtooth combined first 3

The Channing and Lowe packs have been captured by one of their own, and forced to fight each other in a dog fighting ring. Trina and the ladies from Forever Home rescue them, but the wolves aren’t the only ones in recovery.

With Sawtooth Shifters, I wanted to write strong, realistic women who were starting their lives over. They’ve all been through some serious shit and it would be just as easy for them to retreat and let the bad stuff win. I want them to triumph.

The wolves have something to fight for too. Their future. All the female wolves in their generation have been promised to the wealthiest wolves in the forest. Sold to the highest bidder. The pack system is in jeopardy. The Channings and Lowes have very different ideas on how they’re going to guarantee a future for their families.

Forever Home is an introduction to the world, then the following books will focus on each couple’s love story, with the story of the pack struggles continuing throughout the series. There’s no cliffhangers. You can read them on their own, but you’ll enjoy the series more as a whole.

FOREVER HOME:
Shadow Channing is in chains.

Pack rivalries have imprisoned his family beside their enemies. They’re forced to fight for survival each month in a dog fighting ring. Shadow assures his brothers they’ll escape, but to do so they must either team up with the rival pack that led them to their capture, or fight to the death for their freedom in front of a cheering crowd.

Trina is in recovery.

When rumors of dog fights start swirling around town, the owner of Forever Home Animal Shelter is determined to put a stop to them and bring the dogs to safety. Even when they turn out to be wolves. Trina knows that everyone deserves a second chance at life, especially after a car accident ripped hers away from her.

Shadow will do anything to repay Trina for saving his life, but soon he realizes he’s not the only one who needs saving.

RESCUE ME:

Shadow Channing needs to rebuild his pack.
After six months in captivity, everyone thinks he and his brothers are dead, and Sawtooth Forest is in uproar. The packs must change their ways, or violence will lead them to extinction. To become alpha, Shadow must get revenge on his captor as well as secure the future of his pack. Easier said than done when there’s a shortage of female wolves, and they’ve been sold off to the wealthiest wolves in the forest.

Trina is a work in progress.

After a car accident claimed the life of her fiancé, Forever Home Animal Shelter is the only place she feels like herself, relating to animals much better than people. When the pack of wolves she rescued shape shifts into men on the full moon, their leader will do anything to repay her for her bravery and kindness. Trina knows that Shadow needs her to protect his alpha status, but soon she learns she needs him just as much.
Trina must decide if she’s ready to take a chance on giving Shadow her heart, especially when she knows how easily it can all be taken away.

PROTECT ME:

A scarred soldier. A submissive shifter. It’s not what you think.

Baron Channing is tired of fighting.

As second in command, he’s built to take orders. The Channing pack has protected Sawtooth Forest for generations, and now they’re guarding the women who saved the family from the dog fighting ring. The Channings must fight for respect, but Baron doesn’t believe violence is the answer. He needs to take a stand for what he believes in if he wants to keep the incredible woman he’s been assigned to protect.

Kiera is a soldier.

She grew up in a man’s world, and she’s got the scars to prove it. Sent to Forever Home for rehabilitation for PTSD, Kiera didn’t believe she could learn anything from a bunch of homeless animals. But when a rescued werewolf sees her in a way no one else ever has, she realizes how wrong she was.

Together Kiera and Baron learn that the bravest thing is being true to yourself.

AMAZON  iBOOKS  KOBO

These books will be available on all retailers. Some of them are slower to upload than others. I’ve been waiting for the links to go live, but it’s not fair to you or these books to not talk about them. Each installment will come with the new moon.

November–Conquer Me Major and Cass
December–Cherish Me Shea and Delaney
January--Shelter Me Dallas and Lyssie
February–Complete Me X and his mate

So many of you have been in touch with me lately, so I wanted to answer a couple questions here.

Why aren’t the Sawtooth Shifters books in Kindle Unlimited?

I’m doing some cool things to promote these books, and that required me to release them across all retailers.  I’ve enabled lending on all of the books, so you can lend them to your friends. Authors still get paid when you do that, the same as if you borrowed the book in Kindle Unlimited.  Plus, I want everyone to be able to enjoy these.

I’m introducing them at a lower price, and each month, the next book will be available for preorder at the lower price. Soon after release, they’ll go to regular price.

What about Leah and Jagger? Sure they’re happy RIGHT NOW but we know all hell is about to break loose! When is the next Escort book coming? 

You guys blew me away with your support and enthusiasm over No Strings Attached. It hit #1 in holiday books (appropriate for Jagger Holiday!) and was top ten in all erotic romance. I couldn’t knock off Grey, but holy crap. It was frigging amazing. I love you all! The answer is, soon. I have some deadlines I had to meet, and this is my crazy time of year at the day job.  My next priority is the follow up to No Strings Attached, tentatively titled Wrapped Around My Finger. 

I’m so lucky that the voices in my head tell me awesome stories. And I’m even luckier that you all want to read them.

Okay, back in the writing cave!!  I’ve got my work cut out for me!

No Strings Attached Is Here!

Today’s brew: Sangria! Because that’s what Leah would drink.

All my book babies are special, but here’s why No Strings Attached is close to my heart.  It was born in the most organic way possible, out of a conversation over text. A friend of mine enlightened me that someone I thought was a model was a male escort.

Whut.

I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Maybe I was envious of a woman who had the brass tacks to call an escort agency and hire a man to show her a good time.  It seems like a simple thing to do, but it’s not. But even more than that, I couldn’t stop thinking about the guys. Talk about work/life balance problems. How does an escort go to work and then come home to his girlfriend or family? How would his personal life fare with a job like that?

So I started to talk to the hive mind about this idea.  They brought up things I never thought of. There was definitely a story here.

I needed to create a confident woman who could afford to hire an escort (these guys aren’t cheap), but I had to give her a reason to take a chance on hiring a date.  And it was time to give my escort some work/life balance.

No Strings Attached was born.  A successful woman brings a male escort to her twentieth high school reunion.

It was supposed to be something that stayed on the surface, but it went much deeper than that.

I hope you’ll read the book to find out the rest.
