I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Enjoy This Steamy Peek Into Protecting Winter!

The final book in the Frostlands series is here! This action-packed adventure brings an end to our time in the Frostlands. I hope you enjoy this conclusion.

Kaede and Sinclair
Cursed to the Frostlands, he never thought he’d find his mate. But he did and he vowed to protect her until the day he died. And he did. It was the issues that came after his death that threatened their love, their life, their family. Will Kaede be able to find his mate and right his wrongs?

Rhen and Winter
He’d lost her once. He refused to lose her again.
His mate sacrificed herself for him, expecting him to go on with his life. But there is no life for him without her. To save her, he will do whatever it takes. At all costs, he must protect Winter. Even if it means sacrificing himself.

The Frostlands Finale
They’ve fought for years to stay alive in this frozen prison. This final battle will decide it all. Will our couples rise to the challenge, or will they be stomped under their enemies’ feet? Find out who’s left standing when you read, Protecting Winter, book 4 of the Frostlands series.

** A Steamy Peek Into The Book!**

Rhen sat up. “I want to be the one to dress you.”

His beauty stared over her shoulder at him. “I won’t say no to that.”

Rhen rose from the bed and gathered up her discarded clothes. Clothing in his arms, he walked back over to her and knelt at her feet.

“Stand up,” he told her. She did as he asked. He couldn’t resist staring at her beautiful body. Every part of her was utter perfection. His eyes fastened on her pu**y. A low growl rumbled through his chest.

“Don’t even think about it,” she warned.

“Just one lick,” he told her.

“Rhen! Don’t think about it.” She leaned away.

He leaned forward. “Too late. I’m already thinking about it.”

“Rhen!” She leaned back so far that she fell onto the bed. He pounced and spread her thighs apart.

“Rhen, I’d planned for us to bathe at the river.”

“We can do that too. After I lick you again.”

“Rhen!”

“You told me I needed to eat so I could get stronger.”

“I was talking about blood.”

“Pu**y is more nutritious.”

“What nutrients does it have?”

“Vitamin P,” he said with a grin.

Before she could say anything else, he lowered his head. It wasn’t long before her words morphed into moans. Those moans transformed into cries of pleasure as her fingers threaded through his hair, gripping it tightly, pushing his face deeper into her pu**y. And he loved every minute of it. She could smother him in her pu**y if she wanted to and he’d die a happy vampire.

Kat Davenport has one mission: kidnap her cousin’s fiancé and bring him to their safehouse. Bashing the wrong man upside the head and causing him to have amnesia was never her intention.

But as her captive’s memory returns, Kat realizes he’s not only the wrong man, he may even be the threat her family is running from. Oh and he may not even be human!

I’ll update it twice a week on Vella. Wednesdays and Saturdays. As for eBook format, I don’t know.

Enjoy this short & steamy scene from Her Silent Knight!

Cursed to never speak again, Kaede Oshiro hasn’t uttered a word in decades. And then a curvy witch storms into his life and makes him moan her name.

Banished to the Frostlands by his jealous cousin and his cousin’s wife, Kaede Oshiro has spent years fighting to stay alive on a frozen tundra that’s filled with creatures straight out of nightmares. Battling day after day, killing night after night has turned him into a cold-hearted shifter. His hope of returning to the mortal realm and reclaiming his title as pack alpha seems impossible. Then one day, an opportunity for him to regain his freedom arises. All he has to do is kidnap a witch and bring her to The Deciders. He thought finding the witch, Sinclair Rose, and turning her over to The Deciders would be a simple task. She proved him wrong. The moment he touched her, he experienced pain unlike anything he’d felt before.
When he finally came to, he realized six things:
1. The captor had become the captive.
2. The cottage he was being held captive in was filled with Christmas decorations.
3. The witch holding him hostage was the most beautiful creature he’d ever seen.
4. When her hands were on him, he was able to speak.
5. Her presence was awaking the dormant dragon inside him.
6. He must protect this woman at all costs.
However, if he chooses protecting Sinclair over completing the task assigned to him by The Deciders, he’s putting both their lives in danger. Obey The Deciders or protect a voluptuous witch who makes his dragon roar? There’s only one answer both he and his inner animal can agree on.
Protect the witch. And death to any who try to harm her.

*A peek into the book.*

“I’m ready,” she whispered.

He nodded, but didn’t move.

“Kaede…”

“I’m not a small dragon.” He rubbed one finger between her wet folds. “Two of my fingers barely fit. What if I don’t fit?”

She chuckled. He looked to her face.

“I was made for you,” she told him. “You’ll fit.”

He swallowed. “I don’t ever want to hurt you.”

“Sometimes a little pain isn’t a bad thing. I want to feel you inside me, Kaede. Don’t make me wait any longer.”

He didn’t want to wait any longer. He lowered himself to her body.

“You’re not heavy,” she said, before he could ask.

It was like she was reading his mind.

“I’m a thick girl,” she told him. “I can handle it.

She knew he was trouble when he walked into her shop.
Being a mechanic and part of an all-female bike club means, Antoinette ‘Toni’ Keys is used to men looking at her and saying, “Hey pretty girl, you sure you can fix that engine?” Or, “Hey doll, you sure you can handle all that bike?” So, when an outlaw biker name Dirt steps into her shop and refuses to allow a female to work on his bike, she’s determined to show him she’s the best mechanic for the job.
What she doesn’t plan on, is the instant attraction she has for him. She’s not looking for love. She doesn’t have time for a tattooed bad boy and the trouble that follows him everywhere he goes. She has her own problems with a rival bike club. Yet, she’s finding it hard to resist his wicked smile and his sexy tattoos.

He knew he was in trouble the moment he laid eyes on her.
Dietrich Tate, aka Dirt, is a third generation Reaper. His club is the most important thing in his life. He’s loyal to his brothers. When one of them goes rogue with the club’s money, Dirt is the one chosen to hunt him down. Instead of finding his target, he finds a sexy brown-skinned mechanic with the prettiest smile he’s ever seen.
He knows his club wouldn’t approve of him seeing her. Yet, he can’t resist her. Spending time with her makes him forget his troubled past. However, it also brings trouble to her doorstep. Trouble she wants no part of. Trouble that puts her entire club and her family in danger. Trouble that makes her not want to be around him. Dirt vows to protect her from his vicious crew. Imagine his surprise when he learns she can be just as vicious as they are.
That only makes him want her more.

She’s pretty sure the dragon in question is her mate. Dragons are an unforgiving lot, but, he’s her mate, he has to forgive her for all the crimes she doesn’t even remember committing. Right? Wrong! He wants her dead and Ciera isn’t going down without a fight. It’s time to show her mate that her monster is bigger than his.

Her touch excites the monster inside him.

There’s only one creature who can save him from himself: his mate. When he finds her sneaking out of his castle, he thinks the Fates have finally answered his prayers, that is, until he finds out who and what she really is.

Allowing her to live would be an act of treason.
Yet, now that he’s touched her, killing her doesn’t seem right.
Edmund has a tough decision to make: protect a mate he doesn’t trust or protect his brethren?

Dangerously Curvy Series, Meet The Characters, Siren Chat

Mental health awareness with Scar and Exa.

Hello and welcome to Siren Chat! Today, I finally get to talk to Exa and Scar. For those of you who don’t know Scar and Exa, they are the main characters from Scar’s Obsession, book 4 of my Dangerously Curvy series. For those who do know them, this is the interview many of you have been pushing me to have. Today, Scar and Exa finally found time to sit down with me. I’ve already been warned not to get too personal. Exa and Scar both threatened me with bodily harm. LMAO. Okay… enough chatting. Readers, I present to you, Scar and Exa!

*Round of applause, please.*

Siren: Hi, Scar and Exa! I’m so excited to have you both with me today.

Exa: We’re excited too! So excited that we even wore our matching bulletproof vests.

Siren: Aren’t all the vests black?

Exa: Nope. Liam and Seven made these new ones for us. Mine is off black and says HIS on the back. Scar’s is jet black and says HERS on the back.

Siren: Oh… Uh… so you got matching bulletproof vests. How romantic!

Exa: I know, right!

Siren: Let’s get started, guys. For today’s interview, I went back and forth about what I wanted to chat with you two about. I ended up going with mental health awareness, since May is Mental Health Awareness month. Are you two comfortable talking about your mental health?

Exa: I am. Scar, are you okay with it?

Scar: I’m okay with it.

Siren: Great. There’s a lot to discuss when it comes to mental health. It would take hundreds of interviews to cover it all. I’ve decided to talk about protecting your mental health.

Exa: Oooh, I like that, Siren. That’s very important. What made you choose that topic?

Siren: It’s something I’ve neglected in the past. And the thing is, I didn’t even know I was neglecting it.

Exa: Say that again for the people in the back.

Siren: Which part?

Exa: The part where you said you didn’t know you were neglecting it. I felt that in my soul.

Siren: Oh, yeah, I didn’t even know I was neglecting to protect my mental health. No one ever talked to me about it. I didn’t even know it was a thing. Now that I think about it, I feel silly for not knowing. While neglecting my own mental health, I was doing everything to protect others’ mental health. For instance, when certain people would ask me for something, or to do something, even if I didn’t want to do it, even if I was too tired to do it, I still did it. Why? Because I didn’t want them to be stressed out or I didn’t want them to have to worry. Yet, their issues that I took on was stressing me out and causing me to worry. It wasn’t until I put down everyone else’s burdens that I realized how much baggage I’d been carrying that wasn’t even mine. I’d picked it up along the way. Or, I’d offered to carry it until the next stop. But, people got used to me carrying it, so they simply left it with me. I got so used to holding that weight, that I didn’t even notice it was weighing me down. It wasn’t until I was almost drowning that I realized their baggage was causing me to sink.

Exa: Girl, you just said it all right there. Yasss! What did you do to protect your mental health?

Siren: I had to let go of that baggage. Getting rid of it caused me to lose some people close to me. However, it also allowed me to see that some people were just using me. The moment I was no longer carrying their burdens, they disappeared. But, I’m okay with that. Mentally, I’m in a good place because they left.

Exa: I’m glad you let that dead weight go. I’ve been there, done that.

Siren: I think most of us have. Which is why I’d like for you two to share with the readers how you protect your mental health. They read about you in these books and see how bad a** you are. But that doesn’t mean you don’t struggle sometimes. Who wants to talk about it first?

Exa: I’ll go first.

Siren: Okay, Exa. How do you protect your mental health?

Exa: I end those who cause me stress.

Siren: Huh?

Exa: I end them. Kill them. Dead.

Siren: Um… you mean, you break ties with them?

Exa shakes her head.

Exa: No. I mean what I said. I end them. And that seems to solve the problem every time.

Siren: Um, let’s talk about the situations where you can’t end a person.

Exa: There’s never a situation where I can’t…

Siren: Exa, this is an interview. Don’t reveal too much about your life, okay?

Exa: Ohhh. My bad. I forgot.

Siren: That’s okay. Let’s try this again. Exa, how do you protect your mental health in this stressful world?

Exa: Well, I don’t kill people. *Exa winks.*

Siren: Of course, you don’t.

Exa: I try to focus on the positive. I try not to let the bad thoughts in and I…

Siren: Honest answers, please.

Exa: So, you want the nitty gritty?

Siren: Yes. How do you protect your mental? Without, uh, ending people.

Exa: Okay, I’ll tell you. I don’t. The truth is, I suck at protecting myself. I’m able to protect others. But, when it comes to me, I always put me last. It’s a bad habit I’m trying to let go of. Most people think I’m strong and unbothered simply because I’ve embraced my curves and don’t give a damn about social norms when it comes to weight. They fail to realize that I truly love me. I love my size. I love my curves. I’m very active. I eat right…. sometimes. But, I’m healthy. My heart is healthy. Yeah, I’m curvier and plumper than most. That doesn’t mean I’m upset or disturbed by it. What gets me down is seeing others suffer. I have a habit of taking on their pain. Not on purpose. It just happens. Even when they’re not worrying, I worry about them. My job is to save people. But, sometimes I fail. And that failure eats away at me until I feel like I’m going to go crazy. I try not to think about it. That’s how I used to try to protect my mental. I used to shove all those dark thoughts down and hope they never escaped. That no longer works. Now, I embrace those thoughts. I tell myself I’m only human. I can’t save every one. I no longer punish myself for not being perfect. No one is. I don’t let the thoughts and judgements of others make me feel pressured. However, like I said, I’m only human. Even when I don’t want to let others’ thoughts and judgements get to me, sometimes they do. When that happens, I allow myself to have a pity party. I cry. I let it out. I cry until I get a headache. I scream at the wall until my throat is sore. I let the anger out. I no longer hold it in. And then, I wipe my face and I take a nap. Before I go to sleep, I tell myself it’s going to be okay. I’m alive. I’m healthy. I have my squad. I have the man of my dreams. I remind myself, that though my life isn’t perfect, it’s full, it’s happy, it’s beautiful. Basically, protecting my mental involves allowing myself to be weak at times and not feeling guilty about it. Crying doesn’t make me weak. It took me a long time to realize that. It’s okay to cry. Just don’t let the tears last longer than the smiles do.

Siren: I LOVE it, Exa. I’m glad you’ve found a way to protect yourself. Scar, your turn. How do you protect your mental health?

Scar: I used to think talking about my thoughts and feelings made me weak. The first step for me was realizing that talking about how I feel doesn’t make me weak, it makes me strong. I no longer hold everything in. I no longer hold on to things that tear me down. I’ve learn to let go of any and everything that makes me feel bad. My protecting my mental health means loving some people from a distance. No matter how close you are to someone, sometimes you will need space from them. No matter how much you care about someone, sometimes, you have to let them shoulder their own burdens. No matter how much you love someone, sometimes, you have to put yourself first. I try not to feel guilty for telling others no. When I started doing that, my life became better. I mean, I still deal with F’d up stuff, but my mind is clearer. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I’m living my life and not simply existing. I guess you could call that protecting my mental. Right?

*Smiling* Siren: Right! That’s definitely protecting your mental. I’m glad you realized that you don’t have to carry everyone’s baggage, Scar. You used to look stressed out all the time. You look healthier now. More carefree.

Scar: I’ve got my woman to thank for that. Before I met her, I was always self conscious about my scar. If someone stared at me too long, I got offended. If they said something about it, it made me want to kill them…

Exa: With kindness. Kill them with kindness. Remember, this is an interview, Savage.

Scar: Right. I wanted to kill them… with kindness. I no longer feel that way. When people stare, I think to myself, that’s their business, not mine. If they don’t like how I look, that’s their problem, not mine. I don’t hide under hoodies any more. I have no reason to hide my scar. It’s part of me. Always will be.

Exa: He even smiles when I kiss it. Don’t you, Savage?

Siren: Scar, are you blushing?

Scar: No. It’s hot in here. Is the AC on?

Siren: I’m not hot.

Exa: Neither am I. You’re blushing, Savage.

Scar: Men don’t blush. Let’s get back to the subject. Like I said, I no longer hide my scar. I no longer carry others’ baggage. I still have F’d up thoughts sometimes, but it’s nothing like it used to be. I’m in a better headspace now. And that’s how I protect my mental.

Siren: Awesome. Thank you two for sharing with us how you stay healthy mentally. I have to bring you guys back on Siren Chat to talk about your love life one day. Before you go, do you have any love tips for the readers?

Exa: I have one. No matter how big the D is, you still have to suck it. So, practice jaw exercises.

Siren: Wow. Okay. What about you, Scar? Any romance tips?

Scar: I have one. Protect your love. Don’t let anyone come between it. Don’t let anyone tear it down. Don’t let anyone shake your foundation. For a long time I was mad at Garrett because he didn’t trust me. I’ve come to realize, he was trying to protect his love. Yeah, he went about it wrong. But, I’m no longer mad at him, because I get it now. I’ll do anything for Exa. I’ll destroy anyone who is a threat to Exa. I’ll destroy anyone who gets too close to Exa. What Garrett and I both have to learn is that we can’t let our emotions make us crazy. We have to protect our mental health while protecting the women we love. We’re so accustomed to fighting for what we want, what we love, that we believe we have to do the same thing when it comes to the women we love. Being with Exa is helping me realize I don’t have to fight for her love. I’ve already got it. I’ve just got to protect it without losing myself in the process. That’s what I’m working on now. Learning to protect my love without losing myself.

Siren: Awww. I love it! I love that you and Garrett are back on good terms. I love that you’re both working on your mental health. And I love that you both have women who love you unconditionally, flaws and all. Thanks, Scar and Exa, for joining me today to discuss mental health. I appreciate it.

Scar & Exa: You’re welcome.
