Now I turn the spotlight on my smart and sexy book…

Guess what just released in paperback? ALL, that’s right, ALL of my Succubus Romance on the Go line of stories are now in one neat compilation. Every story was an Editor’s Pick too. Here’s a closer look:


Soul of the Succubus

After nearly four millennia, Yve, a succubus and harvester of souls, has finally met her quota. She must travel to hell to redeem her own from the devil who holds it in hock. Ta’avah, the hunky and charming minion responsible for luring Yve into sexual slavery, joins her for her redemption ceremony before an audience of ogling demons. The pair soon learn that deals with the devil are rarely settled to anyone’s satisfaction other than Lucifer’s. Only one weapon can trump those of the master of deception, but do Yve or Ta have enough humanity left in them to find and wield it?

Succubus Games

Willow has had centuries in Sisyphus Prison to reinforce the hard-learned lesson that the jealous and capricious Greek gods are not to be trifled with. There are only two ways out, and both require Willow to compete in the annual gladiator match. The winner is freed while the loser marches straight to Tartarus to become one of Hades’ concubines. Willow plans to press all her succubus charms into service to gain the upper hand against her opponent…until she discovers who he is.

Helveticus is a demi-god with a devilish plan of his own to win his freedom, a plan that begins with the seduction of his lush adversary. He is the last person Willow wishes to battle because she’s not sure whether she wants to kill him or kiss him. Only one can be crowned the victor. Who will win the war of body over heart?

Succubus Steam

A succubus half-breed, such as Violet, who hobnobs with the highest echelons of Victorian London society, is a bride in a difficult marriage of extremes. Any act that wants of propriety, and she would find herself banished to the wilds of Cornwall where her full-blooded succubus sisters live and thrive. Yet she prefers the company of mortals, even if she must occasionally risk her reputation by engaging in discreet sexual liaisons.

When Violet’s great uncle dies and bequeaths her his laboratory and home, she crafts an artificially intelligent automaton named Adam to sate her carnal needs. Her plan is coming along nicely until an incubus from her past, and the unwitting model for her invention, discovers her secret. Violet has good reason to be wary of losing her heart to Lyle, but perhaps Adam is the key to fulfilling all of her desires.

Evernight’s Love Scene Blog Hop (Feb 7 – 14) 20

VDayBlogHopHappy Valentine’s Day! To celebrate, all the hop stop hosts are posting a love scene from an Evernight story. I thought I’d give you a brand new short story about a pair of my favorite Evernight lovers–Kristy and Blake from “Slave Driver” in the HIS anthology.

The couple knew each other in high school but their flirtation fizzled out due to a misunderstanding. Blake may be her lover now, but he’s also her personal trainer, and he takes his job seriously. So seriously, Kristy has good reason to fret that he might be a little too hard core for her at times, and perhaps not quite as romantic as she’d like.

Continuing their love story several months later, here is a flash fiction short story called:

Heart-shaped Bells

“I should have fired you right after you got into my pants!” Kristy exclaimed as she adjusted her grip on the cold, black kettlebell. Her personal trainer and boyfriend, Blake, had upped the weight from twelve to sixteen kilograms and was demanding she do her usual number of reps.

“Just swing the damn thing and stop your belly-aching.” Blake flipped the page in Kristy’s training log, and jotted down her stats. “No shortcuts. I want fifty good swings to chest level at a steady pace. None of that floaty shit.”

English: Three commonly used kettlebells (Drag...

“Fine!” The first swing barely reached the level of her hips.

“You’re going to have to do a lot better than that.”

On the second swing she made it to chest height. Swings three through ten she executed perfectly as well. She just needed a little push…as usual. “Good. Good. Eleven. Twelve. Thirteen. Only thirty-seven more.”

So far neither of them had mentioned the date—Valentines Day, the day for lovers. He hadn’t forgotten, though he’d allowed to her believe he had. All good things in time.

“Oh hush,” Kristy growled. Her foul mood had grown as her hints about the day went unacknowledged or artfully dodged. He hadn’t sent her flowers or candy or even given her a card. “You are a mean…sonova…bitch!” Each word came at the top of the swing arc.

Blake set aside his log and moved to stand in front of her, careful to keep a safe distance from the sixteen kilo kettlebell a lost grip could accidentally hurtle his way. “You like it when I’m mean, admit it.” Taunting her might not have been the best idea, but an offensive strategy offered the best smokescreen for his own nervous energy.

“Twenty. Twenty-one. Twenty-two—”

“You skipped nineteen. Now you’re at twenty-two.”

“Twenty-three. You.can……ass!”

“I’m going to spank it if you don’t stop being such a brat. Thirty. Only twenty more.”


New Release Spotlight: Ariel’s Song by Evie Knight 3

ariels-song1mPretty cover, right? I think so.  Here today, I have guest Evie Knight to talk about her new release from Evernight Publishing, Ariel’s Song. I’ll let her give you the deets:


Lila, thank you so much for hosting me today and letting me share with your readers my new release titled, Ariel’s Song.

To celebrate the launch of my new release, I have a tour wide giveaway and I’m also gifting an ecopy of Ariel’s Song to one lucky commenter at each blog stop. But before I get to the prizes’ details, let me share with you a bit about the book, and then I’ll tell you what’s up for grabs and what you have to do to enter. Deal?

About Ariel’s Song:

Colin Hoskins, famous classical violinist, is tainted by his past. Angry at life, unable to move beyond the betrayal of his dead fiancé, he’s sworn off performing or falling in love ever again. All Colin wants is to be left alone, except no one listens. Especially the pretty little assistant he can’t fire and his body burns to claim.

Stranded in a foreign country, bankrupted heiress Ariel Parks needs a job to fund her way home. Assistant of sorts to the musician she’s fantasized about for years sounds like a dream job. She never imagined the gorgeous genius would be a reclusive beast. But the real problem is the way every nerve in her body tingles at the mention of his name.


Sneak Preview:

“What makes you think you’re qualified for this job?”

A pair of caramel gold eyes stared at her. Ariel couldn’t believe she was talking with him. Colin Hoskins. The famous musician. He looked hotter up close than he deserved to be. His intent gaze reminded her of the first time she’d listened to one of his songs, falling in love with his music irrevocably. And the many times she’d touched herself, imagining him making love to her.

Not once, not ever, did the thought cross her mind she’d one day be at Colin’s house, interviewing for a job. Ariel glanced around his elegant study, taking in the impeccable dark wood floors and matching drapes, in an effort to ignore his you’re wasting my time attitude. When she’d decided to answer the ad earlier today, she never imagined the job to be this hard to get.

He stood up and circled his desk, stopping behind her chair. “Well?” Colin twisted his finger in the long curl brushing one side of her face, pulling it.

#8Sunday To sleep, perchance to dream…of a good man 30


Click to go to Linky List for other participating authors.

SnippetSundayScissorsMy eight sentences for Weekend Writing Warriors this week come from my first western, Wild West Succubus.

I’ve tweaked the text slightly from the published book to keep the spoilers out of it and to make it eight sentences.

I’m too tired to ride, a unique sensation I seem to have forgotten since turning succubus. Hugo steers me to the hotel to get a room for the night. He offers to sleep on the floor, a noble offer I accept. I collapse fully clothed on the bed, and fall asleep. I dream—of William, of Caleb, of Carlton, and of Hugo, especially Hugo—all the truly good men I have known in my long life.

The sun has barely begun to rise above the horizon when its first rays steal into our tiny room and waken me.

I stretch, surprised at how sore I am. When I glance Hugo’s way, he’s awake, sitting in the chair, watching me.

Wild West Succubus is available NOW. I’m also giving away a free copy this week. (<<–Click to tweet about it) If you’re interested, use the Rafflecopter (starts 9/1) to enter:
