Who's Who and What Came Before

Anyone else as excited about football as I am? I admit it, I'm a huge NFL fan and am so glad the season's underway. Looking forward to some fall TV shows, new ones and returning favorites.

Today, I'd like to get you all caught up in the Who's Who and What Came Before regarding my highly sensual Contemporary Romances. While the books themselves are not a 'series', they do have common characters, with each having a central hero/heroine that have a story and HEA that's all their own.

To clear up some confusion, here's a quick glance at what books have come before the most recent release, Cuff Master, Ellora's Cave Taboo.

Quarterback BlitzEllora's Cave Sophisticate Erotic Romance, which features hero and veteran QB Kyran Black for the Alexandria Griffins and the team's mascot, Anna James, a high school physical education teacher and assistant JV football coach who needs the extra $ being a mascot provides.

Kyran and Anna's story introduces readers to Kyran's best friends from his college days at LSU, sports agent Alexander Grant and PI/Tattoo artist Phalen Maddox, a former Special Ops soldier.

Field of PlayEllora's Cave Moderne, returns to the world of professional football with Alexandria Griffins wide receiver, Dallas McKay, and PI Grace Daniels, who's been hired by Dallas to help find his biological parents.

This story features the return of Phalen Maddox, who assists Grace in the investigation when it becomes necessary to call in some extra help. Sports agent Alexander Grant, who represents Dallas, also makes an appearance.

Ink Master, Ellora's Cave Taboo, is an Erotic Romance with strong BDSM elements, minus the sadism. Phalen Maddox, the hero, is a Dom who recognizes that Cassie Williams, the owner of a bookstore-diner in Salem, MA is a submissive in denial and is determined to claim her as his.

Ink Master introduces readers to the Maddox brothers, Detective Ethan Maddox and soon-to-be Attorney-at-Law, Taran Maddox, each Dominants, and their future heroines, Morgan Everhart and Detective Samantha Riley.

Morgan, you see, is a psychic with the gifts of psychometry and communicating with ghosts, while Ethan, a detective used to dealing with cold, hard evidence and facts to solve a case, struggles to understand her abilities. Sam, on the other hand, is a bombshell blonde capable of kicking some serious ass and Taran's future? Stay tuned to find out.

Playing Doctor, Ellora's Cave Spectrum, is agent Alexander Grant and Dr. Ryan Hathaway's sexy love story. The two have a history, dating to when they were growing up. Ryan was introduced in Quarterback Blitz, as Kyran's surgeon. He and Alex were reunited in QB Blitz after Kyran was injured, and in Ink Master, Ryan returns to claim his man!

And that brings everything to the here and now, Cuff Master, Ellora's Cave Taboo, Ethan and Morgan's HEA. Here's a blurb:

Detective Ethan Maddox and psychic Morgan Everhart are on the cusp of a relationship, if she can forgive him for doubting her abilities when they first met. A Master with a fetish for handcuffs, he recognizes Morgan is a submissive who needs a patient man to guide her safely into the D/s lifestyle. He is determined to claim her.

Inviting her for a moonlit walk, Ethan kisses Morgan and her seduction begins, until a teenaged ghost interrupts. Ethan is skeptical of the supernatural, but if he doesn’t open his mind he may never collar the woman he loves.

As they work together to solve a cold case, Ethan introduces Morgan to the very dark, seductive world of sex, submission, bondage and dungeons. All the while, danger is growing. If Ethan doesn’t find a young girl’s killer soon, all could be lost.

Reader Advisory: Morgan’s sexual awakening includes watching a scorching-hot brief scene of male/male lust, with Ethan by her side.

All contemporaries are available at Ellora's Cave,, B&N, ARe, and Sony Reader Store. In the previous post, links for each venue are provided.

  1. I think it's great that you weave a subject you lov e - football - into some of your stories. Of course, you know my favorite things about your books are your tattooed heroes and the mystery elements! ;) I've got Cuff Master on my kindle and am looking forward to digging in.

  2. I have just found Cuff Master and now I have to go back and get the other books and read those first. I am one of those readers who likes to read books in the order that they came out or I feel like I am missing something.
    I need more hours in the day and more money in my book buying budget.
    These sound so good I can't wait to get them all.
