Edge of the Enforcer

Edge of the Enforcer

One sadist. One submissive
One extraordinary love

and may all your darkest wishes come true

 Fleeing false murder charges, Lindsey lands in San Francisco. There she builds a satisfying life until, in the notorious Dark Haven BDSM club, she encounters deVries. Moth, meet flame.

A security specialist and occasional mercenary, deVries needs an adorable submissive like a knife to the gut. Hell, she’s not even a masochist. But here she is, all big brown eyes and sweet body and sassy mouth. Loyal. Tough-minded. Honest.

Or maybe not, considering her ID is forged. If she thinks to lie to him, she’ll learn better. He’s the Enforcer of Dark Haven—his discipline is absolute, his punishments harsh, and his heart untouched…until now.

Edge of the Enforcer, the latest in the Dark Haven series, is undergoing the copy-editing, line-editing, proofing, etc.  And Loose Id moved up the original release date, so the book is now coming out in May!  Woohoo!

It was an interesting book to write. As y’all probably know, I don’t exactly enjoy massive amounts of pain, so deVries pushed my limits a bit.  I agree with Abby’s description in My Liege of Dark Haven:  “Talk about insanity. Being attracted to deVries was like a moth saying,  Hey, let’s go check out that awesome bonfire.”

Texas submissive versus sadist–you’ll have to let me know who you think wins the battle!


I’m participating in an exciting new project with 11 other bestselling authors. It’s called 1001 Dark Nights, inspired by The Arabian Nights: Tales from 1001 Nights.

In the original, Scheherazade desperately attempts to entertain her husband, the King of Persia, with nightly stories so that he will postpone her execution.

We’re taking a unique spin on the premise and creating sexy, romantic stories that a modern day Scheherazade might tell. Some are paranormal, some erotic. All are compelling and page turning.

One of these novellas will be published each month starting January 2014. Mine is called Show Me, Baby. Check farther down this page to see more about it.  It will release August 2014, and I’m writing the story now.  I’m enjoying being back in the Shadowlands.

Y’all are really going to love Master Jake, btw.

After that, I hope to return to the paranormal series, The Wild Hunt Legacy in 2014.  The were-bears say that it’s their turn for a story.  Grumpy growling can keep an author awake at night, so I’ll probably comply.

1001 Dark Nights
Show Me, Baby

August 12, 2014 

1001 Dark Nights Show Me 200x300After his last lover chose her career over him, Jake knows he wants a woman who will put him at the top of her priorities—as he would with her. One of the trainees, Rainie, has caught his attention. Lush body, a gift for living life to the fullest, always laughing or smiling. Yeah. She trips all his switches. But she’s never given him a second look and that’s damned annoying.

Rainie has been burned enough times that she’s not going to get serious about any man. Sure, the BDSM club trainees are supposed to be looking for a permanent Dom, but no harm, no foul—they don’t need to know she lied. Trainees get to be involved in everything—and with everyone. But there’s one she avoids. Master Jake is always frowning at her. No matter how gorgeous he is, she doesn’t need any disapproving Dom up in her business.

Unfortunately, her best friends are having a double wedding. Little hearts are floating in the air. Every breath is filled with romance. Rainie is doomed.
