It's Release Day for 'Consumed'!

This book is the fourth in The Deep in Your Veins series. It is Ava and Salem's story, and starts a few months after Sam and Jared - who are huge background characters - ascended. Just to warn all of you who are terribly fond of Sam and Jared...be aware that Ava and Salem are very different. Ava is very impish and cheery (though also deadly), and Salem is surly and not in the least bit chatty. Here is the synopsis:

Svent√© vampire Ava Sanchez has a difficult decision to make: should she accept the invitation of the Grand High Master Vampires and join their legion? It will mean leaving behind her brother and her home. It will also mean working with Pagori vampire, Salem McCauley. Unlike the majority of vampirekind, she doesn’t fear Mr. Tall, Blond, and Dauntless…even if he does have some psychopathic traits. In fact, he has a raw sexuality that tempts her to drop her ‘no relationships’ rule and give him exactly what he wants from her – everything.

Salem McCauley doesn’t like anything cute, or sweet, or cheery. Yet he wants Ava with a desperation that’s bordering on obsession. And shockingly, she doesn’t look at him like others do – you know, like they fear he’ll rip out their spinal cord for fun. Now that the legion will be busy hunting the players involved in the creation of an illegal vampiric brothel, there’s no time for pursuing Ava. But Salem makes time, because he never denies himself what he wants and he always holds tight to what’s his. And that’s exactly what Ava is, whether she knows it or not: His.


Warning: Contains bad words, dirty talk, and scenes of a steamy nature.


Take care!

Upcoming Releases

The fourth installment of the Deep in Your Veins series, 'Consumed', will be released 12th December 2014. This is Ava and Salem's story, with Sam and Jared being dominant background characters. The book cover and synopsis is coming soon, and I'll be posting teasers on Facebook and Twitter.

Also, the fourth in the Phoenix Pack series 'Dark Instincts' will be released 7th April 2015. This centers around Marcus and Roni. As with 'Consumed', the book cover and synopsis is coming soon.

One last thing...I'm also working on the first installment of The Mercury Pack Series, which is a spin-off series from the Phoenix Pack. This book is Derren's story, and will be released late 2015.

Take care, everyone!

Just to Say...

I'm going to be unreachable until Monday 7th July as I'll (and I say this with both excitement and sheer terror) be attending an author signing event in Scotland.


In preparation...

Remind myself not to curse like a sailor. Check.
Attempt to put a stranglehold on my faulty mind-to-mouth filter. Check.
Remember that not everyone appreciates sarcasm. Check.
Order myself not to hide under the table out of the pressure of needing to appear normal. Check.

Maybe I'm being a little advantageous here.

Take care, S :)

Hey There, 2 Things

One, with regret, I have to inform you that 'Here Be Sexist Vampires' won't be included in the 'Tall, Dark and Supernatural Anthology'. The electronic size of the anthology was much too big, so myself and another author - Kendall Grey - volunteered to pull out. I still urge you all to buy the anthology as the authors featured in it are very talented people.

Two...it's happened again. Someone illegally copied one of my books onto a website, only changing the characters' names, and claimed it was theirs. Not only is it devastating, but it's scary because if this has happened to me twice when I have only written 7 books, the law of probability says this kind of copyright infringement is common. That's definitely a scary thought.

Even scarier, I might never have known about this if it hadn't been for a fanfiction reader who found it suspicious that the names in the story kept changing from Rachel to Jaxxon, and Noah to Connor. A google search of the names Jaxxon and Connor led her to my website, and I now worship this woman. So please, if anyone has, or ever does, find themselves a little suspicious like that, don't ignore it.

Take care all,

S :)

So excited about this...

From 3rd July, 'Here Be Sexist Vampires' will be featured in a boxed set of e-books titled 'Tall, Dark and Supernatural', which includes stories by Lisa Olsen, Kendall Grey, Elizabeth Hunter, Gina Whitney, S. E. Lund, Michelle A. Valentine, Belinda Boring, Kim Grosso, and S. L. Jennings.


 
 
 
 
 
They're such great people to work with, and I've had lots of fun with this.
 
 
Take care everyone,

There's Going to be a Fourth Phoenix Pack Book!

I'm delighted to announce that there will in fact be another addition to the series. The book will center around Roni and Marcus, which I'm sure won't be a surprise to those who have read 'Carnal Secrets'. I've already got started on the book, which I'm having so much fun writing. I can't reveal much about the story, but suffice it to say that smooth-talking Marcus is finding charming Roni - who's much like a solitary wild animal in nature - a challenge, but one he's totally enjoying.

I know many are interested in reading Dominic's story, but he's just not ready for his mate yet. His time will come, and we will laugh as the mated males give him shit in retaliation.

I don't have a release date for the fourth book just yet, but I will post it when I do. I'd imagine it will be sometime in late Spring 2015, but that's a guess on my part. Yes, I know it seems like a long wait; the publishing process is a lengthy one.

I just want to say thank you to all those who have been so supportive of the series! It means a great deal to me, and I truly appreciate it.

Take care,

Suzanne

Short Christmas Story

Hey everyone, I wrote a short story that gives a quick glimpse of the Phoenix Pack on Christmas Eve. It centers around Dante and Jaime, but it features the rest of the pack. If you'd like to take a look, read on.

Two steps into the bedroom, Dante stumbled over something and almost fell flat on his face. Glancing down, he wasn’t surprised to find a stray shoe. “Jaime!” From her spot on the floor amidst rolls of wrapping paper, tags, ribbons, and a pile of gift-wrapped boxes, she lifted her head and presented him with a bright smile that always hit him straight in the gut. Ignoring the sensation, he glowered. “Do you want me to fall and break my neck, is that it?”

Cocking her head at her mate – and inwardly laughing her ass off – Jaime replied, “I’ve thought about it.” When he picked up her shoe and pointed it at her, she sensed a lecture coming. “Lay off, Popeye. I’ve been using the shoe rack.”

“Yeah, to put CDs on.” He gestured at the sporadically placed shoes. In honesty, the mess bothered him more than repeatedly tripping over. “Why do you have to scatter them everywhere?”

“Think of it as a test of your coordination and balance.”

Jaime!

“Stop obsessing over it.” Smiling again, she jumped to her feet. “That’s everything wrapped. You’re just in time to help me move it all.”

Fully intending to spank her ass later, Dante helped her carry the gifts through the network of tunnels. In the living area, most of the pack was seated on the large sectional sofa, watching The Grinch. Taryn was playing on the floor with baby Kye while Trey was stood frowning at the tree, telling Ryan, “I just don’t understand the purpose of it.” He had been whining about the decorations for weeks.

Having positioned the gifts under the tree, Jaime stood upright to find that Dominic had come to her side, wearing a flirtatious grin and holding mistletoe over her head. “Oh for God’s sake.”

Dominic just laughed when Dante snatched it. “All I want for Christmas is you, Jaime.”

Dante sighed. “Dom, don’t make me hurt you. Again.” 

Dominic ignored him. “Come on, Jaime, would you really deprive me – your favorite person ever – of the thing I want most?”

“Yes, yes, I would.”

“How could you be so selfish and¾? Ow!” Rubbing the back of his head, he scowled at Dante. “Now that was uncalled for.”

Rolling her eyes, Jaime turned away from them and noticed that Kye had crawled to Ryan and was tugging on the leg of his jeans. The little guy had taken an extreme liking to the enforcer. Looking awkward, Ryan reached down, gripped the back of Kye’s sweater, and lifted him. Blowing bubbles, Kye grabbed Ryan’s nose. Wincing, Ryan tried handing the baby to Trey, but Kye wasn’t prepared to release his new toy.

Taryn laughed. “He has a soft spot for you, Ryan.”

Greta huffed at Taryn and gestured at the fairy lights decorating the room. “Is all this really necessary? I’m starting to get a migraine from all the twinkling.”

Taryn smiled sweetly. “I suppose if you’ve lived to see over three hundred Christmas days come and go, it’s hard to get excited anymore. On another note, did you remember to put wrinkle cream on your list?”

“Why does it have to be me?” Tao’s whine had everyone’s head swiveling. Dressed as Santa, he was shoved into the room by Trick and Marcus.

Trick looked at him impatiently. “Stop moaning! It’s for Kye. It’s his first Christmas.”

Marcus nodded, chewing on a cookie. “Yeah, now go and do…whatever Santas do.”

With a long suffering sigh, Tao made his way to Kye. But no matter how much Tao fussed over him, the kid just frowned a very Alpha-like frown at him, totally unimpressed. Then he grabbed Tao’s nose and pinched hard.

Tao jerked backwards. “Ow! I’ll swear he just grunted.”

Dante turned to Jaime, only to find that she was bending over and adjusting the position of a bauble. And that was when he noticed it. His whole body tightened. The second she was upright, he cupped her elbow and whispered into her ear, “We need to be alone now.

Confused and curious, Jaime allowed him to lead her out of the living area. It was quickly apparent that he was leading her to their bedroom. Once they were inside, he slammed the door closed, pushed her up against it, and swerved her around. “What the¾

Lifting up her t-shirt and jerking her jeans down slightly, Dante released a low groan and ran his finger along the white fur that lined his mate’s panties. Ignoring her indignant huffs and slapping hands, he stripped her down to her underwear in seconds and then twisted her to face him. He raked his gaze over her, feeling his mouth dry up at the sight of her in the red lacy, fur-lined underwear. “Damn.”

“It was supposed to be a surprise for later,” she grumbled.

“I think you should reward me for being a good boy this year and let me unwrap you early.” He pulled her against him and nipped her neck.

She snorted. “A good boy? Considering the things you do to me in that bed, you must be constantly on the naughty list. But don’t worry – ‘nice’ bores me.”

“Glad to hear it, since you’re stuck with me. Even though I suspect you’re trying to break my neck, I’m keeping you.”

Jaime locked her arms around his neck. “And even though you’re a total neat freak who likes to control everything around him, I’m keeping you.”

He smiled against her mouth. “That’s good, because I intend to love you and irritate you for the rest of our lives.” He kissed her. “I say we don’t leave this room again until morning. After all, it’s important to celebrate our first Christmas as a mated couple in style.”

“In style, huh. I can go with that.”

“But first…” His expression turned pained. “Do you think you could put all your shoes on the rack?”

“Oh for the love of all that’s¾! Therapy, you need therapy!”
