This book is PEACHY 🍑

You may have heard me mention this before, but it’s important I make a big deal out of it. 

Especially now that the book One Bad Knight has been released. 

I wrote butt stuff in this one. Let’s refer to it as 🍑(peach) stuff  going forward as it has a classier ring to it.

Holly, Why? Why do you need to draw so much attention to this? You are being a bit crass.

Okay okay okay well here’s the deal. 

I got fussy when Seduced by Death came out and I got two/three chili peppers out of five (this is how we rate steam/spicy level of books now)

Because IMO that last book was hottttt 🔥🔥🔥

So I took it is a personal offense. 

Why didn’t I get more?? 

What do I got to do to earn another chili pepper? 

*light bulb*

omg, it’s 🍑 stuff isn’t it. I bet it is!!!

And thus, I made a goal for myself. Seeking out the 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️ rating.

Having never written such scenes before (but certainly reading it) I became all about this social experiment to see what rating I would get for spice. 

Basically, you could say I’m like a scientist. *adjusts goggles and labcoat*

ANNNND I’m also my own cover designer, so at the behest of my author “friends” I made an alternate cover. One that glorifies this experiment.

***friends is in quotes because apparently the assignment was a joke and they kept telling me to stop d!cking around making a peach cover when I started to actually do it. RUDE***

What do you think?

Do I need to make a special edition with this peachy cover available?

Gatsby has Arrived

Gatsby has ARRIVED!

This is the spiciest book I’ve written – complete with some uh peach scenes if you get what I mean *wink wink winkity wink wink*

oh you don’t know?

It’s butt stuff. There I said it. 

I tried my hand at writing butt stuff. And mouth and uhhh…okay I’ll stop.

Now if for nothing else, you will have to read this book out of curiosity.

Am I above cheap theatrics? Absolutely not. 

Though this may actually be the most serious book I’ve penned, and the angst and the smut are *chefs kiss*

Ooooor you might want to read it for the extremely dark, cynical bad boy Gatsby who comes back with ALL the damage for his first love who he met when they were but children – giving us those dark Peter Pan vibes.

Swooooon. Gatsby is bad to the bone and here he is – a hot mess – squatting in an abandoned building, ready for trouble. Or rather ready to make trouble.

Need a little more to sink your teeth into before committing to this bad boy?

This is the spiciest book I’ve written yet! Let’s see if this wets your whistle 😏 

Prickles of danger raced up my spine, as I sensed the presence of someone taller and broader coming up from behind. I shivered. When I tried to turn toward him, strong hands grabbed my hips, keeping me facing forward.

He immediately set me into a rhythm that was half time to the music. Time slowed down, as a muscled wall met my bare back. I could feel the ridges of his warm pectorals, and the contact felt pornographic for such a public place.

Whereas my previous partner made eye contact, getting nonverbal consent to dance with me, this guy had come up from behind and encroached on my space. No matter how titillating I found this man, I had standards. I jerked away, ready to head to the other side of the bar and away from the dangerous entity at my back. But his fingers dug into my hips, pulling me back against him again. He didn’t want me facing him or walking away.

The combination of the rough movement and the intoxicating scent of sex pheromones and virile man rolled over me. Despite myself, my knees turned to jelly and liquid heat gathered at my center. Visions of what else his rough hands could do ran through my imagination.

I was so used to being treated like a porcelain doll; I almost welcomed his brazen moves. But I still didn’t submit to anyone, no matter how hot.

I tilted my head to the side, so he could hear me when I shouted. “You chased my date away.”

I could only catch the wicked curve of his lips, and another ripple raced down my spine, informing my brain how screwed I was. Because a lower portion of my body was now in charge.

The man aligned his mouth to the side of my head, so he didn’t have to shout. His hot breath fanned against my ear and my nipples instantly tightened. “You were dancing with me before I came over.”

“Who says I want to dance with you?” Even as I said the words, an achy heat spread between my legs, and I squeezed them together as if I could keep the sudden wetness at bay. The bass of the music traveled up my feet, past my legs, penetrating my lower belly, only making it worse.

“Who says we ever stopped?” His voice rumbled through the column of my neck.

The good, the bad, and the Book Shop

FIRST the hard news, and SECOND the fun news!

Last week, try as we might, our tough little house rabbit, Pancake, didn’t make it.

 My willful little bun is now over the rainbow bridge.

We worked very hard for over a month to get him help, he was gasping for breath, and I would rush to him with an oxygen machine all hours of the day and night.

 In the end, he crossed the rainbow bridge while we were still trying to get answers. Thankfully we’d at least reached a specialty vet who finally got us some answers. There was a deep underlying cause to why he couldn’t breathe and we likely couldn’t put our boy through that anyway.

We’ve spent our time grieving but the hardest part is seeing our sweet housebun, Ginger, who remains and continually looks for her husbun. Ugh, breaks my heart. We might have to get another furbaby before too long…

But it is by no means all deep sadness!!! 

I’m still in shock how Vegas Immortals is popping off, and I’m utterly thrilled how many people are amused by Vivien’s antics, are now swooning for Grim, or petitioning for their own reaper dog!

And I have a received a mass of DMs asking about how readers can get their hands on signed copies of my books.

Instead of fielding these one by one, which whoah nelly I’m not organized enough for that shiz lol

I've decided to open the shop again for a limited time!

But to everyone who messaged me condolences or congratulations over the last couple weeks, thank you so very much. I saw them all even if I wasn’t able to respond. 

My heart has spent a lot of time receiving all this love. And I’m so so very grateful.


P.S. are we still waiting on the audiobook for Seduced by Death???


I’m updating Audible every couple minutes for days now to see if the powers that be have approved it. 

You can bet your buns I’ll be jumping in your inbox to let you know when we are a GO!

The book signing at Romanticonn in Connecticut was a total success!

Granted, I didn’t breath for the 2 days and morning leading up to it, terrified about selling books IRL, but once the flood gates were opened and readers started milling about I fell right into my element.

Meaning, the first girl I saw wore a shirt that said “Vampires are sexy AF.” 

So I pointed at her and yelled, “You, yes you, you belong over here. Come to meeeeee!”

ARC TEAM OPEN! + Giveaway City

I’ve got so many cool ideas for the release of Seduced by Death, the last book in the Vegas Immortals series!!! 

And one I’m SUPER excited about is getting a logo designed for my fictional coffee shop, Perkatory. 💀☕

Get it? It’s a play of words on purgatory? The main character is Death? eyyyyyyy

I want to slap this logo on coffee cups, shirts, make stickers, ALL THE THINGS! Wouldn’t you love some secret nerdy romance java swag?

But I’m struggling to get a good design created. So far, I’ve had a couple freelance artists try but it never comes out right. 😔

Let’s cross our fingers and hope the artist I just hired (who specializes in skulls) has got this. 

I also struggled with a good tagline for Perkatory. Death before Decaf is a fantastic, obvious choice but I’ve taken it a step further… 

Perkatory – Good to the Last Breath. 


So hopefully, there will be a shop on the site with some cool swag by the time Seduced by Death releases. Stay tuned.

Surprise! I’m a lawyer now

This may come as a shock , but I’ve decided to no longer write books and instead become a LAWYER!

*cue Elle Woods from Legally Blonde* 
What? Like it’s hard?

Okay, let me back up.
I just got back from North Carolina for a beautiful beach wedding of one of my best friends, and before that I worked my butt off the last couple months to get Seduced by Death to the editors.

I pushed myself waaay harder than usual to make sure the ebook/paperback could come out the same time as the audiobook.

You’re excited for the audiobook!?!? I’ll circle back to that down below. 

As soon as I came home I finally collapsed. And picked up a horrible, tawdry vice that I’m positively giddy about.
I’m ADDICTED to watching the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard defamation trial.

Everyone says they’re all about the highlights from this high profile, celebrity case, but I am legit watching the 8 hour long court case. 

Should I admit that ?!? I probably shouldn’t, but here we are…

After pushing so hard on this book, allll I want to do is sleep and watch this legal circus all day, every day to recover. 

This trial feels more like a game of petty jeopardy than the sophisticated renditions on television shows I’ve seen.

And what I’ve learned is I should TOTALLY be a lawyer cause I could do way better than some of the lawyers on Amber Heard’s side.

After watching 3 full days, I’m like pffft I could take the LSAT and slay it LOL

Okay probably not, but I’m having the time of my life.And my poor, sweet l’husbun. From the moment he wakes up to when he pops home for lunch, I’m like “Let me tell you! Let me tell you what just happened!”I’ve gone SO deep down the rabbit hole, that I also feel in love with the forensic psychologist (she’s deeply fabulous and clearly passionate about what she does) 

*Hamster brain ignites* 
WAIT! No. I don’t want to be a lawyer. I want to have her job! Studying the psychology of vets with PTSD!

Anywho, part of the assessment was that Amber Heard has Borderline Personality Disorder.
I was beyond fascinated, so much that I watched the psychologist talk about the assessment process TWICE.

So this morning while I was brushing my teeth, I scrolled Tiktok videos of people who have the disorder. They are incredibly candid about how exhausting it is and their difficulties maintaining relationships. *clutches heart*I want everyone to feel love! Life can be hard enough without a disorder. 
So by the time, I popped in the shower I was like, ooooh if I could write a character who has BPD and gets to have their happily ever after (with some vampires thrown in of course) I would be A GODDESS!
Honestly, not sure if I’m smart enough , or the right person to write that protagonist but omg that would be awwwwesome.

Long story short.

Maybe I’ll just stick to writing romance books. But *maybe* these occupations might sneak their way in somewhere. 

Anyone who says we don’t learn anything from TV clearly never met me. LOL!

So what I’m wondering is…am I literally going to be into this trial for the next four weeks?!?!?!

All signs point to yes.


While the trial is on the background, I’ve also been doing intense and absolutely delicious work on plotting One Bad Knight.

I know the preorder says November for release, but I anticipate it coming out many months sooner than that. 


Okay, remember that part about busting my butt to get the Seduced by Death audiobook out the same time as the ebook/paperback?

I didn’t bust my butt hard or fast enough.

*that’s what she said, eeyyyyy*

No, but seriously, I’m kind of bummed. I really tried to get this out fast enough, but I got sick for a week and that was enough to throw things off schedule.

SO! It appears the ebook/paperback will release June 9th as planned and the audiobook will make it’s debut in July.
