A Little Bit More was one of those unplanned things. It had been nearly two years since I released anything and I had just signed a contract for book three in the series. I thought I owed my readers a little something. It was no surprise that Kel took center stage. The entire time I was writing More Than Truth, which releases in August, I felt as thought there was something up with Kel, the heroine from my first book, More Than Blood. Everytime she showed up, she seemed off – not quite herself. So when the opportunity was offered to put out a short story I knew immediately I had to see what was wrong with Kel. I always thought that Kel and Gabe’s story ended more with a happily-for-now instead of a happily-ever-after. So this is it.
A Little Bit More
Kel Sheridan is a crossbreed and Gabe Ferrar is a pure blood. No two people could come from more different backgrounds and yet they still managed to overcome all obstacles to build a life together. Or have they? What happens when life throws just a little bit more at them?
More than Life has been a real labor (emphasis on the labor) of love. I’m so happy to finally see it lifted to the light of day. It has taken this series into a new and exciting direction…plus it stars Raife and who couldn’t love that?
More Than Life
The last thing Katya Schaffer saw before waking up a subject in a genetics lab was Raife’s face. So when he suddenly shows up in her cell a year later to save her, she doesn’t trust him. She’s no longer the sweet and innocent girl who worshipped him. After being subjected to painful experiments, she’s acquired some mad skills, even if she can’t exactly control them. She doesn’t understand why they turned her into an abomination or why so many factions of the Arcane risked public exposure to capture her, but she intends to find out. Unfortunately, Raife and his team of agents are her only hope of surviving long enough to get her answers.
Twenty years ago, Agent Raife Merrick came to San Francisco to die. He hadn’t intended to save a sweet little blood-sucker from certain death and he sure as hell hadn’t meant to stick around and watch her grow into a beautiful woman. Yet fate obviously hadn’t given a damn what he wanted and it definitely didn’t care about the future of that woman now…but Raife did. Despite her distrust, he’s willing to do anything to protect her and finally make her his.
It’s hard to believe that after two rewrites and months of edits, the sequel to my very first book has finally reached the end of the process. The second book has taken this world I created two years ago with More Than Blood and sent it racing in a new and exciting direction.
Agent Raife Merrick thinks he’s reached the end of the road and he burned up the last of his good intentions sending the most important woman in his life away…for her own good. Or, at least, he thinks so and he couldn’t be more wrong. I loved writing Raife. He’s made the best hero: soft center surrounded by a hard shell with a tangy smart ass coating. Kel, the heroine from the first book, makes a few appearances and I introduced a couple new characters including an anti-hero who may or may not have his own story in the works. **wink wink** I’ve already started work on Tag’s book which I hope to have done in the next few weeks now that my spawn are back in school.
So browse the new site I made with my own two hands and overactive brain, check out the hot new cover for More Than Life and read the excerpt. And, of course, let me know what you think. I love feedback!
