HAPPY RELEASE DAY! BUTTERFLY STYLE and the beauty of lesbian love...

http://bit.ly/butterflyKin
Lesbian romance doesn't sell. Or that is what many would have you believe. Strange though, considering how many readers ask for stories including love of all kinds. And how passionate those who pick up these books are when talking about them.

Did I keep all this in mind while writing Butterfly Style?

Of course not! lol

Those of you who know me know I write whatever my muse throws at me, and he's never steered me wrong yet. Maybe lesbian love doesn't appeal to the same huge audience as billionaire romance or other common trends, but I suck at at sticking with pop trends! <g>

So what's so great about two women in love? Well, in my humble opinion, the same thing that's great about anyone falling in love. What makes it a story worth reading is the characters, and Chicklet has always been a fan favorite.

Her submissive, Laura Tallent, not so much.

But that's about to change.

Many Cobra fans found Laura hard to relate to. Aside from being deeper in the lifestyle than any other character, she isn't all that nice to the Cobra's angel, Tyler Vanek.

Which is obviously unacceptable.

Until you see where she's coming from. And so far, all the advance readers say the same thing.

'I see her so much clearer now!'

This story was needed to connect the pieces. If you haven't read any of the Cobra books before, you could start with this one and have the unique opportunity to read all the others with this deeper understanding of two women who are so vital to the Cobra family.

It's also fucking HOT.

If you're thinking two women together isn't your thing, you might be one of those readers who weren't interested in two men at one point either. Or who thought BDSM was way too out there.

You might just surprise yourself.
  


Aside from that, you get some awesome scenes between Chicklet and Sloan. I've always loved their friendship and it was fun to go back and see how special it's always been.

One last little update!

ABSOLUTELY SHAMELESS! A recap of my latest signing...

So last weekend I made my first trip down to Florida for Shameless Book Con 2016. Those of you who follow my page know I've been trying to hit events in new areas and this definitely fit the bill. I was also impressed with how well put together the event was from the get go. 

I usually prefer smaller events because I love getting a real chance to connect with readers, but SBC was put together in a way that made it easy to meet up with people. There was such a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Old friends hanging out, new friendships being formed, tons of laughter and smiles, and obviously tons of books!

 This time I didn't get to make the trip to Disney, but I was totally cool with that. People I hadn't seen in years were there and I was thrilled to get the chance to catch up with them!

Wanna see how happy I was? <g>
Yep, I missed Jenna. Very VERY much. ;)

Seriously though, the timing of that picture makes it look like way more was happening. I swear!

Aside from my romantic exploits, I finally got a chance to meet Christopher Rice in person. We'd chatted online before, and he's just as cool in person.
You may have noticed there's no selfies! lol Which means I'm grabbing whatever pics I can find. There is one out there where I'm not chugging down a beer.

Does make me wonder what was so fascinating about that drink that it earned a picture though! Maybe I just said something interesting. Or crazy.

Probably crazy.

Speaking of CRAZY...

The signing was HUGE!

But I still got a chance to snuggle with Julie. :) I was so happy to see her there!



I also got to meet Kelly in person.

And she came with birthday presents! 

Avenger goodies and some really cool stuff she found that shows how well she knows me. <3 You probably can't tell, but I was trying not to get all teary because it was just so touching that she thought of bringing me gifts that were truly special. I never expect it from readers and it gets to me every time.

Even without gifts, I'm a sucker for hugs. Keep that in mind if you ever hit a signing with me!

Last, but not least, was the costume party. 

It was MASSIVE! 

I'll admit, I spent a lot of the party outside because I was too worn out to dance, but the costumes were incredible and the music was great!


Might not look like much, but I'm quite proud of having made my own costume! :D 

Angel and Mandy are freakin' SMOKIN'!

All in all, what can I say but the event was a huge success and I can't wait to go back next year! I'm so grateful that I was invited and for all the hard work the organizers put in to making SBC one of the best conferences I've ever been to.

Thank you to everyone who joined in this year. And if you couldn't make it, don't miss the next one!

I promise, it will be worth it! <3

Books Worth Your Bucks-Blog Hop!


Welcome to Books Worth Your Bucks. This is an ongoing blog hop with fellow authors to introduce Indie or small pubbed authors to our readers. Each Friday we will spotlight an author's book, give buy links along with the links to the other authors participating in the hop, and say why we think this book is worth your bucks.

Part of our reasoning to do this is to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read. The Nookettes of the Virtual writing colony of Nara's Nook have come up with this blog hop to share our favorites.

I absolutely LOVE sharing my favorite books, so I had to jump right in with this hop!

The challenge was choosing just ONE books from the awesome ones I've read recently to share with you all.

I'm going to go with a book that got me out of my sexy reading slump! :)

Tad’s weekend started out like any other; hitting a college frat party with a handful of buddies. But just as the evening hits its peak, things get up-ended fast. Ditched by his drunken, trolling friends, Tad winds up getting hustled by three jocks playing poker. Now he’s forced to pay his dues in the most outlandish of ways; accepting a couple broken bones or spending an hour with his victors’ favorite flogger, Scott. But the guy’s tantalizing torture quickly proves to be the least of Tad’s worries… and the kickoff to a night of raw, shocking lust.

Experience the graphic, minute-by-minute account of that hour spent at the hands of Tad’s insatiable tormentor. Addicting chemistry lights the stage as Scott ignites Tad’s reluctant desires into a frenzy of forbidden need.

Buy here for only 99 cents:

Loser Takes All (Up-Ending Tad: A Journey of Erotic Discovery Book 1)


My thoughts on the novel
I mentioned this book got me out of a slump. What I mean by that is I'd read a few erotic romances that had me skimming over the sex scenes, just not feeling the heat. I've always been a bit of a fussy reader, but I'm much worse when it comes to sex scenes. I need to care about the characters, and if there's going to be sex early in the book, I better have a sense of who they are before they start stripping.

Some books will talk about how hard and wet the characters are before you have any sense of WHO they are. Which has me kinda picturing them as walking genitals. I'm sure that would make for an interesting story...just not one I want to read! lol

Loser Takes All--and the whole Up-ending Tad series--has a lot of sex, but the set up, the seduction, drew me in, eagerly turning the pages and curious to find out what would happen next. There's some dub-con, but it's not dark and it's handled very well. The whole time I was reading, just urging Tad to give in! lol

I won't spoil it for you, but of all the books I could recommend right now, Loser Takes All is at the top of the list! 

Happy reading!

STREET SMARTS EARLY RELEASE-Excerpt, What's up next, and ON MY TBR!

So, technically it was supposed to be out tomorrow, but patience isn't one of my virtues! lol

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1K8KWA/?tag=imnoanausb-20

Here's a little teaser:


Not what you were expecting, huh?” Otto rested his hand on Rip’s shoulder. His touch brought a comforting warmth, a steadiness Rip hadn’t realized he was lacking.
He smiled. “It’s cool. The perfect bachelor pad.”
“Yeah…well, aside from Derek and Gage, you’re the first person I’ve ever brought down here.” Otto lightly massaged the side of Rip’s neck. “Took me awhile to get used to having my own space again.”
“Really?” Rip glanced over at Otto, fighting the urge to lean back against him. Fuck, those strong fingers on his neck felt good. “I’d assumed a man like you would bring a new guy home every weekend.”
Otto snorted. “And deal with the awkwardness of waking up with them here in the morning? Hell no. I prefer neutral territory.”
“You must spend a lot on hotels then.”
“Are you calling me a slut, Rip?” Otto slid his hand down Rip’s chest, moving closer to speak softly in his ear. “Or are you telling me you’d prefer I bring you somewhere else?”
Swallowing hard, Rip shook his head. “Neither. I just…I’m not sure how this works.”
Bringing his lips to the side of Rip’s throat, Otto teased his sensitive flesh with the tip of his tongue. “You’re thinking too much. Stop. Does this work for you?”
The light sucking on the side of his neck made not thinking pretty easy. He closed his eyes and nodded.
“Good.” Otto grazed his throat with his teeth. “Just don’t forget to breathe.”
Lips curving, Rip inhaled noisily, then turned to face Otto. “I’ll do my best, but you’re making it hard.”
“I fucking hope so.” Moving quickly, Otto claimed Rip’s lips while tugging at the buttons on his shirt. His kiss left Rip breathless as his shirt hit the floor. His hand glided over Rip’s bare chest and their eyes met. “Your heart’s pounding. You nervous?”
Losing his shirt had Rip wondering how fast things would go, but Otto read his every reaction in a way he hadn’t anticipated. Not at all like things played out in the porn Rip watched.
The thought made him laugh. He shook his head when Otto arched a brow at him. “Sorry, my frame of reference is a little ridiculous. I thought you’d go for the kill.”
“The kill sounds painful.” Otto chuckled. “What the hell is your ‘frame of reference’?”
“Pornhub.”

WHAT'S UP NEXT?

So many things, but my October release will feature none other than our badass Domme, Chicklet!

More on that soon, but for now I'll just let you know it's a prequel, telling the story of her beginning with Laura. We get visits from some of the Cobras younger selves and a whole lot of naughtiness! <g>

Also, the cover is rather gorgeous, if I do say so myself! :)

STREET SMARTS is on its WAY! Time for a SALE! :D

I'm so excited to share the next book in the Higher Education series! :) I had so much fun with the first one, so when I heard from another character in the first book I was more than ready to write his love story.

Here's the cover and blurb:

The one time geeky high school teacher, Rupert ‘Rip’ Martinez, tries to play the hero, it almost costs him his life. Maybe he should leave the rescuing to the tough guys, like the man who saved him, Otto Shriver. Tattoos, dog tags, and a heart of gold, Otto is exactly the type of man Rip would go for.

In his dreams.

When socially awkward meets carefree and confident, it’s probably best they go their separate ways. Their only excuse to ever see one another again is an adorable pup in need of a good home.

Unless they really don’t need any excuses at all.

Click HERE to add to your Goodreads shelf. 

Now, for the sale!

Street Smart is a standalone, but we do get to re-visit a couple of characters from book one. So if you haven't checked it out, grab it now!

NEW SASSY EVER AFTER KINDLE WORLD IS LIVE!!!!


Milly Taiden Presents:
Sassy Ever After Kindle World





Tamed by Bianca Sommerland

When Zaire Torva, enforcer of the Blue Creek pack, finds his mate near death in an underground fighting ring, he has no idea Lathan Ferox crashing into his life will turn his whole world upside-down. The struggle to save the man who claims Zaire’s heart tests their newly formed bond. And proves there’s nothing Zaire won’t do for him.

Only, sharing him might be an issue.

While on a mission to retrieve a runaway wolf cub, Zaire and Lathan come across a beautiful, fierce young woman, Embry Caelitēs, who watches over the child with all the instincts of a mare guarding her foal. Separating the two is impossible, and Embry possesses powers that can help Lathan tame his beast. Unfortunately, Zaire and Embry are like oil and water, clashing at every turn. All they have in common is how much they’re willing to sacrifice for the ones they love.

Surrendering to the wild passion of the animal within, Zaire’s tempered connection with Embry grows, but will it be enough as Lathan’s very existence proves too great a risk for any peaceful pack to take? As Embry’s past closes in on her, and their little cub faces the danger she tried to escape, will love be enough to keep them all alive?





Bonnie Sass by Erika Masten

Even the sexiest Highland wolf lord with the deepest, darkest brogue is no match for curves and sass in the high-stakes game of love.

Angie Maddox might make her living as a VIP host seeing to the whims of high-rollers at the Shifter Access Unlimited hotel in Vegas, but her private life is about no one’s needs but her own. She has taken her share of hard knocks learning that people pass in and out of Las Vegas—and her life—all too easily to let herself get attached. No man or shifter has enough money or magnetism to make her swoon ever again.

Lord Calum Ferguson is no playboy gambler, though, and no stranger to the voluptuous Miss Maddox or the passionate spirit walled up behind her defenses. He’s determined to be more than a one-off London fling from her carefree college days. When an international summit of wolf packs brings the Scottish alpha to Las Vegas and within range of his curvy prey, he knows he has waited long enough for Angie to come back to him; it’s time for the Highland wolf to go hunting.

But his lordship is going to have to put all his wolfish wiles and Highland charm to work if he’s going to get his “sassy ever after” with his bonnie American lass. Between royal pack politics, a kidnapping gone wrong, and the clandestine alliance of a rogue wolf with a seductively dangerous vampire, Calum might lose his chance—and Angie’s life in the process.

Bonnie Sass is a BBW paranormal shapeshifter romance by Erika Masten set by kind invitation in Milly Taiden’s Sassy Ever After Kindle World. Keep up with Erika at her newsletter at http://eepurl.com/pTLx1.





Kissing Sassy by Gracen Miller

Wild and free, Cajun thought he was content.

Cajun Wolfe doesn’t have time for trouble in five-inch stilettos, but that’s what he gets in the form of Hollywood’s leading lady. When Olivia Scott waltzes into Blue Creek’s shifter bar seeking his expertise for help with a stalker, Cajun’s convinced she’s a thrill seeker and he scorns her request. Soon he realizes he might’ve just met his match in a human, who also happens to be his mate. Olivia’s not just sassy, stubborn, and unpredictable, she has a temper to match his too.

Then Olivia showed him what he was missing.

Olivia Scott has had it with arrogant men. Cajun scoffing at her genuine need for help is the final straw. Determined to find another that’ll take her seriously, she storms off only to be attacked in the parking lot. Playing the part of unlikely hero, Cajun defeats her assailants. Meeting her mate in the form of a snarly wolf-shifter with a bad attitude is rotten luck. He’s also a weakness she can’t afford.

Trouble never looked so fun…

Their troubles are only beginning. A new danger arises and Olivia’s secrets are revealed. Can Cajun convince her to gamble on a mating so inconceivable it might just be a pairing that’ll save the world? Or will all be lost?

…or came with so much baggage.


AUTHOR NOTE: It’s unfortunate that Kindle World Books are only offered on Amazon US. This was not my choice, but Amazon’s decision. They have the final say, and I’m just a peon stuck in a rock and a hard place. My understanding is that this decision was made due to the complicated copyright legalities of permitting an author to pen a story in another author’s world. I LOVE ALL of my non-Amazon and non-US readers—seriously, y’all are amazeballs and just as important to me as the rest of my readers—and I can empathize with your disappointment. I’d be bummed if Amazon wouldn’t let me read one of my favorite authors too. While I wish Kindle World would open to readers across the globe—don’t give up hope that in time it will—the choice to write for Kindle World was a business decision. Kissing Sassy is a standalone novel and is NOT part of any of my other series!





Sassy and a little Bad-Assy by Jessie Lane

He didn’t know who the hell she was to the old man or why she was hiding, but the beast inside him knew one thing for sure: she would be his.

Dragon Sass by Selena Kitt

Blue Creek needs a dragon. There’s only one problem—they don’t exist anymore. Or do they?

Kai is just trying to live the quiet life of a billionaire recluse. He might still like spicy food and spicy women, but he sacrificed his dragon’s heart over a thousand years ago and hasn’t been able to shift since. 

But Kai’s old nemesis, Nigel, has come back—from the dead—and the old Necromancer has his sights set on the wolf shifters. Nigel is wreaking havoc all over Blue Creek and, unfortunately, the only thing that can kill him is dragon fire. 

It’s feisty, orphaned horsewoman Jules, whose therapeutic ranch is in serious financial trouble, who holds the dragon’s heart—and she doesn’t even know it.

But renowned shifter-matchmaker Barb Wolfe knows—and this is the most important match she’ll ever make. The whole town, and maybe the entire shifter race, depend on it. 





Kiss my Sass by Serena Pettus

Now Luke had to find this woman and explain to her that the father of her child was not only dead, but was also a werewolf. How hard could it be?

Ashe had always considered herself to be a strong woman, so when her baby's father disappears she does the only thing she can…she carries on. 
Now with her parents having passed, she’s back in her childhood home, ready to raise her daughter Lilly there as well. If only her uncle wasn’t such a nuisance things would be perfect.
There’s a new guy in town that grabs her attention. It’s just too bad that he comes bearing the worst news…her baby’s father has died, and her daughter is so much more than she appears.

Luke did his job. He delivered the news of his friend’s death. However, he didn’t count on Ashe being the one sassy, strong-willed woman his wolf would never allow him to walk away from.
Now he needs to figure out how to go about wooing a single mom into taking a chance on a lone wolf, while keeping her and her child safe from an unknown shifter threat.





Wise Sass Mates by Tasha Black

What happens when you grow up and move on, but your crush on your teacher doesn’t?


Bianca Silver is back in her hometown, researching shifter culture with her two best friends. An unexpected encounter in the woods with the teacher she’s dreamed about since she was a teenager sends her quiet new life into a tailspin, putting Bianca in grave danger and offering her a depth of longing and pleasure she never imagined was possible.



Ian Anderson has spent the last ten years trying to repress the violent lust and protectiveness he feels toward honor student, Bianca Silver. When he reunites with grown-up Bianca in the woods the night of a scenting ceremony his control over his instincts is lost. But loving Bianca isn’t as easy as he thought it would be. Between her stubborn streak and the efforts of the person who seems to want her out of the picture, it’s going to take their combined wisdom for these fated mates to begin their new life.



Bite My Sass by V. Vaughn

Juliet is sick and tired of cocky-as-all-get-out werewolf males, especially since she’s one of the few females in her pack that can’t find a mate. So for the past few years she has sought out the camaraderie of humans to carefully guard her heart, but when Juliet sets out on an RV vacation with her three best human girlfriends the first group of men they meet are four smoking-hot firemen werewolves on vacation too. Or so she thinks.
Roman and his friends have come to Blue Creek for the scenting ceremony in search of mates, and Roman manages to stumble on the woman who can temper his alpha heart before they even get there. His wolf is ready to pounce on the little beauty even when Juliet barely gives him a second glance. Her sassy ways scream “catch me if you can” to Roman, and he’s determined to win the woman his wolf needs.
When Juliet can no longer resist her attraction to Roman she gives in to her wolf on one condition - she refuses to be dominated by a male no matter how much alpha is in his blood. But her need to prove she’s equal is so strong it blinds her good judgment, and she invites an evil to shift its course causing her to risk losing her Romeo. Forever.
