Well 2014 is moving at such a crazy pace! In January, INSIDE OUT released in mass market, which means the digital price is so much better now! 
 
So far this month MARKED released on the 10th and will have introductory pricing until March 1.  Then UNCONDITIONAL also released in trade paper.
 
I’ve got such a busy year ahead! Right now I’m finishing up with COUNT ON ME and then revisions for BEST KIND OF TROUBLE and back to BROKEN OPEN. Then I’ll be writing the very first Ink and Chrome book!
 
This August, November and February of 2015 the Hurley Boys series will be releasing from HQN in mass market paperback!  The series is about Damien Hurley’s brothers (hero from Lush!), set in Hood River, Oregon and also on the road as Sweet Hollow Ranch is on tour for part of BEST KIND OF TROUBLE
 
And in June, August and October of 2015, Ink and Chrome, my contemporary erotic romance series set in Seattle’s hottest custom hot rod and motorcycle shop, Twisted Steel, will release in trade paperback. This one is an entirely new series though if anyone needs a tattoo, I might know a few people who can help!
 
More Rowan Summerwaite is up later this year. For those of you who enjoy my urban fantasy series featuring Rowan, Clive, Hunter Corp and The Vampire Nation, you’ll be happy to know the next installment will be out from Carina Press in November in digital formats and in audio.
 
Remember most questions can be answered after a look at my website and the FAQ page!
 
See you all next month!

Newly Released!

MARKED featuring the first in Lauren’s brand new Metamorphosis series – ALL THAT REMAINS is now available! 
 
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lauren Dane takes you into a brand new world in ALL THAT REMAINS. Summer Killian falls fast and hard when Charlie arrives in Paradise Village. But the heat turns all the way up when she learns Charlie is also with Hatch – the man she loved four years before. While she’s not sure she’s cut out for a triad, neither man is going to give her up.

You can check out the Metamorphosis series page at Lauren’s website to get a series description, some  background on the world and to read the first chapter!
 
 

Coming Soon!

COUNT ON ME – Petal, Ga book 3 is with my editor at Samhain. The book releases on June 10 in digital formats.
 
Here’s the back cover copy: 

Petal, Georgia, Book 3
 
Petal is the last place Caroline Mendoza thought she’d end up. Sixteen years ago she lost both parents there—her mother to murder and her father to prison for the crime. Since then she’s built a successful life, but she’s never let go of the belief her father is innocent.
 
Now she’s back in Petal to find the truth. With a new job and a mystery to solve, she’s got plenty on her plate. But when she bumps into Royal Watson, the sparks fly hard and fast.
 
When the whipsmart, opinionated lawyer blows into town like a beautiful storm, Royal has a reason to make the time to get off his organic farm and pursue her. And soon their intense attraction is tipping into something more.
 
As Caroline’s dogged investigation digs up ghosts of the past, there’s not much time for basking in love’s glow. The closer she gets to the truth, the more threatened the real killer gets…and the greater the danger that all her digging could lead to her own grave.
 
Warning: Laid-back ranchers who are really sneak alpha males, tight butts in wranglers, and creative use of belts and buckles. Bad words, hot sex, and lots of pie—sometimes all at once.

Some answers to commonly asked questions:
 
1. Yes I will be writing a book for Anne Murphy in the future when she’s ready for her HEA.
 
2.  I will be writing the Petal books as long as I have ideas for them.
 
3.  They won’t all be Murphys, like with Count on Me.
 
4.  I’ll be continuing the Visits to Petal series of free, short bonus chapters to coincide with the trade paperback release (in this case, December ’14) but readers will be getting access to those chapters via this newsletter instead of at Amazon, etc.
 
 

February Sneak Peek!

Each newsletter I’ll include a sneak peek of whatever book I’m working on at the time.  This month, how about a little something from COUNT ON ME?

(UNCORRECTED Work in Progress)
 
Royal Watson knew his way around a kiss and Anne Murphy was a total idiot for letting this go.
 
His tongue didn’t slide into her mouth, it seemed to flow, a sensuous dance with hers, stroking, teasing, tasting until she was spineless, offering herself up to whatever he had to offer.
 
She sucked that very talented tongue and he groaned, pulling her impossibly closer and she knew he was just as into that moment as he was. Oh yes he was. When they tumbled into bed, it was going to be hot, hot, hot.
 
He nipped her bottom lip just right. Not gently at all. Just shy of pain and then he licked the sting away, making her the one who groaned this time.
 
It went on like that for long minutes, making out on her back steps, the cold air not even bothering her because her skin was on fire for him.
 
He’d reached up to undo her pony tail at some point, wrapping her hair around his fist to guide her exactly where he wanted and damn if that didn’t make fireworks explode all points south of her belly button.
 
At the end of the block a car door slammed and an alarm double honk sounded and he breathed out, breaking the kiss.
 
“You and me. A week from tonight?”
 
She nodded.
 
“Good. I’ll pick you up at seven and make you dinner. Then we’ll head to the Tonk and I’m gonna hold onto you all night long on the dance floor.”
