Cover Art Reveals

Hi all,

I’ve got two lots of cover art to show to you. I’m excited about the two. I’m still waiting to hear about Death’s story, and the moment I do, I’ll let you all know.

thescarredoneThe Scarred One (Deadly Duet 2) Coming November 3rd

Henry is the scarred one of the deadly duet. Everyone fears him, avoids him, and he takes his pleasures out on the whores he controls. He does whatever it takes to get the job done, even kill a woman’s boyfriend in front of her.

Lydia knows there is more to Henry than meets the eye but she will not be the one to find out the truth. She wants nothing to do with him or the world he’s involved in. When they are kidnapped, she has to put her faith in him to get them out.

He hasn’t been responsible for a woman’s death and he doesn’t want to start now. Seeing the damage done to Lydia, Henry promises to kill them all. With no other choice, Lydia sees the real man within him. She can no longer walk away as she’d fallen in love with the scarred one. What will she do when his need for vengeance puts her at risk once again?

verybadthings1lAlso, Jenika Snow and I, have been working on a new project. This is scheduled for release November 17th.

Bad men do bad things.

Ryker Black accepts who and what he is. Working as a hired hit man, he kills without remorse for a price. When he is called to do a job, a young woman becomes a witness to the killing. He should have taken her out, too, but he can’t. He wants her, and so he takes her with him.

Fiona Sterling has lived a sad life since her entire family died in a plane crash. The one person that she considered a friend was a drug addict and is now dead. But then she finds herself taken away by a man that makes no mystery on the fact he wants her.

With death and danger following them Fiona and Ryker find solace and pleasure in each other’s arms. But can two damaged people become whole again?

Riot by Jamie Begley

Okay, you all should know what a fan I am of this woman. Whenever Jamie has a release out, I’ve just got to have it, and all work goes out of the window lol. This was such an amazing book. I really can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this story. It’s another excellent series. The only problem I face now, is waiting for the next one lol.

Riot by Jamie Begley

As president of the Predators’ MC, my men and I are used to preying on the weak and those stupid enough to cross our paths. So why does a straitlaced teacher make me sit up and take notice when I see her for the first time?
The brothers all think she makes me weak, and believe me, weak in their eyes isn’t where I want to be. She wants me to prove she means more to me than the club, and when I fail, she thinks she can just walk away. She’s wrong. I’m a Predator, and nothing escapes me.

As a teacher, I’m supposed to want to educate those who want to learn, right? That’s what I believed until I was told I’d have to teach a class at the prison. I didn’t move to a town labeled as one of the safest places in America only to be faced with a bunch of Predators.
He expects me to trust him despite being the reason I’m trapped in the middle of a prison riot. His club means more to him than I ever will, and if I give him a chance, he will break the fragile peace I have managed to find. It’s not the first time I’ve had to escape a predator.

This work of fiction is intended for mature audiences only. All sexually active characters portrayed in this ebook are eighteen years of age or older. Please do not buy if strong sexual situations, multiple partners, extreme violence, drugs, and explicit language offends you.

Prowling the Vet



MFM shifter hotness!



Laura is a veterinarian in a country town near the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains. She’s intelligent, beautiful, over-sized, and not interested in a relationship with any man. When she literally gets knocked off her feet by a pair of twins, she’s horrified to find she can’t resist the attraction.


Brandon and Tyler have been waiting for their perfect mate since they were teenagers. Brandon’s buried himself in alcohol and women, but Tyler’s so lonely it hurts. When they meet the voluptuous Laura they must pull together to win the heart of their fated mate, and prove why a Perfect Pair of mountain lion shifters are exactly what she needs.




Oh God, she was the one. Her taste, oh fuck…her taste!

Fire was burning under Brandon’s skin and he couldn’t clear his mind of the sweetness of her mouth. Every inch of his body needed Laura to touch him again. He’d never craved such a thing before. He wanted to strip off every item of clothing he wore and beg her to lay her hands on him. How pathetic was that?

“What just happened?” Laura swayed a little from side to side where she sat on a hay bale, looking as intoxicated as though they’d fed her a bottle of whiskey.

Brandon shook his head and growled at his brother. He couldn’t talk, and he wasn’t explaining this to her. He felt wild. He only held onto his lion by the tips of his claws.

“It’s proof that you are meant to be ours.”

Brandon threw up his hands and walked to the far end of the stables, shaking his head and grunting.

Fuck, Tyler! I thought you’d be more eloquent than that.

He strutted back to the place where Ty and Laura sat, just in time to see Laura’s shocked expression turn to one of outrage.

“What?” She screeched, the sound bouncing around the barn.

Brandon glared at his brother and stepped into the exit so she couldn’t get away. Now that he’d tasted her, he knew she was the one, and there was no way in hell he was letting her get away.

In truth, he’d kissed her hoping to feel revulsion at her size, to dislike the way she kissed him. Anything to assure him that he had not found his mate, that he could continue to live the life of a carefree bachelor.

He’d been wrong. She was his and now he’d never let her go.

“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said it like that…”

Tyler really did have to work on his charm if that was the best he could do.

“Shouldn’t have said that? Shouldn’t have said what? What the hell is going on?”

Laura was really screeching now, and seemed to be hyperventilating as her breath wheezed in and out.

Tyler was doing nothing, and Brandon really didn’t like the noise.

He strode forward and grabbed her arms, silencing her with his mouth. She moaned and sunk into his embrace, making his body come alive. Her taste exploded through his senses, the perfect combination of sweetness and lust. He needed her.

Her hands slid under his shirt and stroked his skin. His lion leapt inside him, then settled to purr. She pulled away a little to whisper against his lips. “Why do I want you like this?”

Brandon couldn’t speak but he moved his hands down to her ass and gave it another good squeeze. Fuck, why did he like that so much?

“Brandon? Tyler?” Their mother’s voice called out to them and Brandon reluctantly stepped away from Laura. It almost hurt to do so. He hated the loss of warmth when her hands weren’t against his skin.

“Here you boys are.”

Their mum stood in the doorway, her lovely wide smile on full display as she looked between the three of them. She gestured to them.

“Laura. Come with me and meet some of the family.”

Laura looked up at him, her green eyes worried and open.

Brandon nodded once to her and she seemed to slump. She better not want him to protect her from his mum. That was never going to happen. To be honest, he wasn’t even sure it was possible.

Laura moved up next to their mother, her lovely cotton dress clinging to her curves. That ass just called out to him. Bend me over and fuck me, please.

He shook his head and growled in impatience. When would they be able to claim her?

Rosalie took Laura’s arm and looked back over her shoulder at them.

“Come on, boys. I think Laura needs to meet some of your cousins.”

Brandon groaned and shared a mutual aggravated look with his twin. Their courtship of Laura had just been completely taken over.

New Release: A Fighter’s Choice

A Fighter’s Choice


Product Description

Jasper is filled with violence, and the only way to unleash it is to make money in illegal fights. Ever since he left home he’s been fighting and saving his money, living a simple life of pain and sex. His life is fine until he notices her living across the hall. 

Amber spent most of her life in foster care. She knows how to take care of herself and is prepared to do anything to keep herself alive. Working as a waitress in a strip club was not something she wanted to do, but it pays enough to live on. She notices the man across the hall, but he is obviously bad news with all of his bruises. 

One chance meeting turns into another. Jasper can’t keep his hands off her, and Amber doesn’t want to fight the lust. Together they surprise each other with their need and feelings. However, Jasper’s gotten noticed in the ring, and now he has to pay the price. 

He has to make a choice: go deeper into the fighting world and run the risk of losing his life and Amber, or run with his woman and find love, life, and happiness. 

Be Warned: spanking, sex toys, anal sex



“No. Stripping my clothes off for a man who doesn’t respect me has never appealed. Some of the women love it, and others do it because they have to. I’m not in any desperate need to be noticed by men.” She opened the sterile wipes and started to work on his face. He released a wince as the wipe glided over his cut. “Sorry.”

He didn’t say anything as she finished dressing the cut on his eye and placing a plaster over it.

“Respect?” he asked.

“Yeah, what about it?”

“You need respect to fuck?”

She smiled. “To a point, yeah. I’ve got to know the man sees me as more than a whore or someone who’s paid to do a job. I don’t know. It makes sense in my head.”

“I get it. I know what you’re trying to say.”

“Good, at least that makes one of us.” She moved onto his other cuts. When she was finished, she pressed her palm to his bruised cheek. “I’ve got nothing for the bruise. I wouldn’t go out fighting for a couple of days. Your face needs to heal, and if you keep splitting it open, it’s not going to heal.” She grabbed the bowl and walked it into his kitchen.

“Were you a nurse or something?” he asked.

“Nope, I read a book on first aid. Believe me, when I saw the cost of insurance and medical bills, I figured a few hundred dollars in medical books would save me a hell of a lot more over the years.” She’d burned herself a few months back, and with the book she was able to treat her own burn, which was a mild one. The thought of dealing with medical bills made her feel sick. She made good money but not enough to go wasting it on crap.

She threw the water down the drain and started to wash the bowl. His hands went to her waist as she was standing at his sink. Amber tensed, floored by the flood of arousal working around her body.

Dropping the bowl into the sink, she heard it smash. She made to turn around, but Jasper wouldn’t let her. He held onto her waist tightly keeping her facing the sink.

“Shit, I’m sorry,” she said, looking at the smashed bowl in the sink. The glass was all in the sink.

“Don’t worry about the bowl. I’m not.”

She licked her suddenly dry lips. “What are you doing?” she asked.

The heat of him surrounded her back. She didn’t know what to make of this sudden change within him.

Her hair was moved aside, and she felt his lips against her neck, kissing her.

“Can’t you feel that?” he asked.

One of his hands moved to her stomach. The arousal intensified as his fingers moved downward to the start of her shorts. She was breathing hard, wondering what she should do.

He was a fighter, and she worked in a strip club.

Jasper kissed her neck, sucking on her pulse. She closed her eyes, biting into her lip to try to contain the moan.

“Let it out, Amber. Let me hear you moan.”

“This is wrong.”

“Why? You’re not with anyone, and neither am I. This is more than okay. It’s meant to be.”

She couldn’t argue. The way he brought her body to life, Amber couldn’t think of a single argument to put up. Keeping her eyes closed, she rested her head against his shoulder, letting herself go. 

Available for Pre-Order

Hi all,

I’m hard at work on Death’s story. I don’t know what his title is going to be but then I’ll be working on Blaine. It has been a bit of a confusing week for me as I’ve had all The Skulls and Chaos Bleeds kids invading my thoughts, demanding their story. So, I’ve actually made a start to some of their stories as well as the new MC series I was talking about. Please, if you’d like to know what I’m doing on a daily basis you can find me on Facebook. I do try to keep regular updates.

Whizz has a tentative release date of November 28th. This could change for many reasons but I’m going to work my butt off to make sure he’s released.

Now, A Fighter’s Choice is releasing Monday and is available for Pre-Order at Amazon. Jasper is a bit of a jerk but give him time. I loved him from the moment I started writing him.

The Perfect Shoot (Hot Model Mine 1) by Lea Bronsen


Thank you so much for having me on your blog!

Who hasn’t been infatuated with a sexy poster boy – actor, pop star, or football hero – even though he was unobtainable? The heroine in my Hot Model Mine series is a thriving author and hard-working mother nearing her forties. Tough, independent, and having long ago lost faith in love, she dismisses her crush on the cover model of her book to protect herself. What then can she do when that gorgeous young man surprisingly falls for her, too?

I hope you enjoy this tale of ‘impossible’ love, dead-honest and written with my heart.

Editor's pickLea Bronsen cover


When Andrea Johnson, writing as author Cindy Vega, signed up for a Meet & Greet with the cover model of her latest book, she didn’t expect sparks to fly. Yushka is dangerously good-looking and too young for her. But their connection is instantaneous, and during a photo shoot with the two, the photographer picks up on their growing attraction. Seeing the potential for the cover photo of the century, he decides to push their comfort limits…



An assistant calls Yushka’s name. Bare-chested, the Asian hunk appears from a group of models, strolls to the spotlights, and waits in front of the camera with the confident stance of a professional.

The whole place quiets as if in awe. He’s unbelievably beautiful with his tanned, bulging muscles and washboard-abs-to-die-for. When photographer Lemaître asks him to undo his hair, a black waterfall lands on his shoulders and down his back. A few muffled feminine squeals fill the silence.

One by one, authors whose books he appears on get a few pictures taken with him in flattering positions, wrapping their arms around his back or swallowed up in his embrace, beaming like schoolgirls at their first prom.

Jealousy rips through me so violently I can barely breathe, but my time is up soon, and I hate that even more. I’m non-photogenic, and seeing pictures of myself makes me sick. I’ve chosen a sexy, black top and matching short skirt for the occasion, but looking my best doesn’t help. My stomach ties in a knot.

“Cindy Vega,” an assistant calls.

Fuck, that’s me. I’m dead.

“Go,” Laurie says, giving me a small push.

All muscles tense, I leave my safe corner and join Yushka. He greets me with a placid face, but from the warmth in his pupils, I get a feeling he’s glad to see me. Side by side, narrowing our eyes from the piercing light, we face Lemaître and wait for orders.

Damn. Being so near Yushka’s naked torso is unbearable, as is the heat from the lamps shining on us. Sweat beads roll down the sides of my chest, between my breasts. He endures, too. A thin film of sweat coats his golden skin, making it glow, but he doesn’t seem bothered.

Lemaître clears his throat. “Bon. Stand a little closer. Cindy, this is for Eden Luna Publishing’s website. Officially, we want authors happily meeting their cover models, but off the record, we want sensual, we want heat. Readers will get off seeing your pictures like they do reading your books.”

Stiff as a rod, I nod agreement. I’d half expected this. Problem is, I hate being in the spotlight with so many people watching, and I hate the notion of having my photo all over the internet.

“Sooo,” he continues, “I will ask you to just stand like this, facing me, and smile. That is all. Yushka knows what he has to do.”


Turning to my side, Yushka puts a hot hand on my stomach and the other on the small of my back. Though light, his touches destabilize me, as does the warm, musky scent sneaking to my nostrils.

“Closer,” Lemaître orders. “Bodily contact.”

Shit, I’m fucked.

The stud radiates heat as he approaches, sweaty chest sticking to my arm, heart beating against my skin. His crotch barely brushes my hip, but each pore in my body becomes acutely aware of him, on high alert. As last night’s intense arousal replays in all of me, my inner thighs clench with renewed want.

Whispers and low chuckles sound from both sides of the vast lobby. I try to forget the hundred eyes following my every move, but can’t help being distracted, bathed in full light and painfully self-conscious.

“That is better.” Like a shooting gun, Lemaître’s camera clicks and the flash blinds me repetitively. “Now, give him a smile, Cindy. You know the kind I want.”

My throat so dry I can’t speak, I turn to Yushka.

He’s very near, inches from my face, black pupils gleaming with mischief. Sweat pearls on his face, making him look sexier than ever. Long, black hairs glue to his forehead and cheeks. He smells of soap, his close shave making him look baby-faced.

Seemingly at ease, the heaving of his chest regular, he stares into my eyes. I can’t believe his confidence. Modelling is his profession, but how does he stay so fucking calm?

“You wanna give me a smile?” he whispers, warm breaths brushing my chin. Behind me, his large hand sneaks lower and palms my butt cheek. With that and his other fingers splaying on my stomach, he pulls me to him, making me feel the entire length and…hardness…of his cock on my hip.

I suck in a breath.

His lips curl up in a self-satisfied grin. “Hm, Andrea? You wanna give me a smile?”

Oh my fucking God. I can’t help but obey while my insides go up in flames.

Flashing his teeth, he kneads my ass with a strong hand and pushes his full erection against me. He knows what he’s doing, the devil. He knows slowly rubbing me with his cock turns my pussy to burning liquid.

Somewhere, a feminine gasp breaks the silence, followed by contained laughter.

Très bien, we have a smile,” Lemaître says, camera clicking, flash shooting. “Thank you, Cindy, that will be enough. Next!”

Still grinning and holding my look, Yushka slowly backs off, leaving chillier air between us.

I’m frozen. In shock, lust, need.

“Come on, move it!” Lemaître calls. “We don’t have all day.”

No shit.

Now, I’ve spoken before on Facebook about Christmas stories and I’ve decided to do Death’s story and Blaine’s story from each of the MC series I’ve got going. I’ve got a question for you, would you like me to add a page of all the stories I’m working on or would you like me to announce them when they’re finished?

So, here is the time for the cover art reveal. A Fighter’s Choice came about because Jasper was being a pain in the ass. He’s a bit of a jerk for a hero but I think he comes good. Anyway, coming October 20th. What do you think?


Jasper is filled with violence and the only way to unleash it was to make money in illegal fights. Ever since he left home he’s been fighting and saving his money, living a simple life of pain and sex. His life was fine until he noticed her living across the hall.

Welcome, Michelle Lowhorn!

Hello from Texas. I’m Michelle Lowhorn and I write contemporary and historical romantic suspense. I’m so excited to be a guest on Sam Crescent’s blog and I feel it’s necessary to explain why!

I’m a true romance novel junkie and I’ve always dreamed of being a published author, so I thought I’d write a book, a romance novel of course. Sounds simple enough, right? Oh, so not true! I wrote a couple of chapters before I decided it was a total waste of time and set it aside. Throughout the year, I’d write off and on until I finished the book. The following year I wrote a second one but still didn’t do anything with them. After some encouragement from family and friends, I decided to look into publishing but I had absolutely no idea how to get a publisher to look at my work. While I was reading one of my favorite author’s blog, I noticed she wrote for several different publishers. I picked two and emailed my books to them. I never expected either one to respond. But within a week, Rebel Ink Press offered me a contract! I bet you’ve figured out who that author was. Yep, it was Sam Crescent! So you can understand why it’s surreal that I’m on her blog talking about the release of my fifth book!

I wish I could say that my books were instantly popular and I felt successful, but that’s not the case. After the release of my third book, I still hadn’t experienced any real success. Feeling sorry for myself, I considered giving up on writing. In a melancholy mood, I sent Sam a friend request on Facebook. She not only accepted my request, she also messaged back and forth with me. Sam encouraged me to continue writing since I loved it so much. She explained that it took her a year before she found success. Her advice turned out to be spot on because this past summer, The Highlander’s Treasure was released and sold a decent amount. When I messaged her to tell her about my exciting but small taste of success, she offered to let me be a guest on her blog.

So here I am on Sam Crescent’s blog!!!! I still can’t believe it. Sam has proven she’s not only an excellent author but also gives good advice. Maybe her next adventure should be in motivational speaking. Thank you for everything, Sam!

Sam: Wow, thank you so much for your lovely words. <3 I’m so pleased I helped you.

Now that I’ve made a fool of myself gushing over Sam, I’d love to tell everyone about my new series. It’s about a team of mercenaries who believe they’ve seen and done too many awful things to ever be worthy of love. The series is appropriately named The Unloveable Series. The first book, Abandon, will be released Oct. 10th.   Here’s a sneak peak.



Before Brooklyn Hennessey can bury her estranged husband, his murderers threaten her small children. Alone, distraught, and feeling completely helpless, she is forced to swallow her pride and turn to the only man skilled enough to protect them.

Mercenary, Gage Hennessey, blasts into town with one thing on his mind, revenge. Relying on his superior military training and experience, Gage explodes into action not only to hunt down the killers but to shield his brother’s loved ones.

The two adversaries will have to put aside their animosity and work together to bring the killers to justice and save their family.


Gage watched her fidget as she wrestled with the memory. “Tell me what happened?” When she didn’t continue quickly enough, he became more forceful. “What did you do? What happened to drive my brother to drugs? It had to be bad if he willingly left his family or did you make the decision for him? Did you force him to leave his daughters? Were you so heartless you’d punish him by taking his family away? Tell me what you did, Brook?” He shouted as he threateningly leaned toward her.

“You’ll never understand. You’ll never believe me or forgive me so what’s the point in wasting my breath?”

“What did you do to my brother? What did he do to you? I want the truth!” Gage’s voice boomed throughout the house.

“I did what I had to do. I couldn’t let him use drugs in our house one more time. I couldn’t let him hock one more family heirloom, one more piece of jewelry, one more vehicle, or one more electronic toy so he could buy drugs. I couldn’t let him drive with my children in the car while he was high one more time. I couldn’t let him beat me one more time while I was pregnant with his baby. I couldn’t let him accuse me of being in love with his brother one more time! What did I do? What did I do for this family? I did what I had to do to protect my girls but I didn’t leave him. He promised to love me for the rest of his life but instead, he hurt me then abandoned me and his daughters! He walked away from us! The drugs were more important to him than we were! How could he do that to us, Gage? How could he do that to me?”

Brooklyn’s voice was incredibly weak by the end of her rant, all of her strength was used because she dropped to the floor and wailed in despair. Gage took a minute to process what she’d said, then gently lifted her from the floor, carried her to the mattress and sat down with her in his lap. He held her tightly at first, but when the sobs slowed he leaned back slightly so he could wipe her tears as he whispered in her ear and showered her face in soft kisses. It took a good twenty minutes before her tears dried up completely and she dozed off. Gage must have held her an additional thirty minutes enjoying the feel of her in his arms before he eventually laid her down and covered her up.

There’s no way I’ll be able to keep my hands off of her now. I’ve loved her too much for too long not to make her mine, Gage sighed to himself.

Welcome, J. J. Lore

Hello and welcome to my blog. It’s lovely to have you here today.

Thanks for inviting me. I’ll do my best to behave.

Please tell is about yourself.

All outward appearances would indicate I’m a fairly unremarkable middle-aged, middle class, Midwesterner. I live in a beige house in a suburb and I drive a four door sedan. I could stand to lose about ten pounds and I never have a good hair day. However, when I have time to write, I get to create strange worlds filled with over-the-top characters who get to have great sex.

SC: It’s lovely to meet you.

Do you write full time?

I write in my free time, but as a stay at home mom I tend to be working at child care or housework most of the hours I’m not asleep. I try to pack a lot of writing into that spare hour or so I find per day.

SC: It’s amazing how much writing can take over your life. Once you get started, there’s no going back.

What got you started writing?

In the summer of 2011, my family went through a major medical crisis. In an attempt to escape the stress of enormous caregiving responsibilities, I decided to write down the story I’d been daydreaming about, both as therapy and a way to challenge myself outside of going to doctor’s appointments and monitoring vital signs. Thankfully, my loved one recovered and I ended up with an actual book. To my surprise, another story popped into my head and I simply kept writing. Nine published books later, six under a different pen name, I’m still going strong.

SC: Fantastic news, and thank you for sharing with us. I’m so pleased your loved one has recovered.  

What words would best describe your books?

My Planet Alpha books are filled with devotion, sexy-times, action, and a bit of humour.

SC: The best kind of books.

What are you working on now? 

I’m about thirty thousand words into my first full-length Sci-Fi erotic romance. It involves a lavender-eyed alien sheriff falling hard for the local postmistress who is a little bit of a clean freak. Unfortunately for her, she has to deliver packages on a real mudball of a planet. I’m hoping this one turns out well and I can write a few more set in this world.

SC: I’ll be keeping an eye out for it :-)

Unexpected by J. J. Lore


As two Alphan warriors on the fast track to promotion and improved status, Mikel and Felix of the Tauride have their future planned out. They intend to go from performing security duties for the Prince while he visits Earth to eventually earning the right to seek out their human mate and rescue her in some dramatic way, impressing her and earning her love. But a chance encounter with a lovely young woman sends them both down a markedly different path.

Shy Alisa Sorrel merely wanted to see a rose garden, then retreat back to her safe and sequestered life in the Women’s Refuge on Earth, but once she encounters two earnest and determined Alphan officers, she’s forced out of her shell and into a whole new world of passion.

Even as the bonds they share tighten and satisfy needs they’d never imagined, Alisa, Felix, and Mikel are soon faced with danger and betrayal from the machinations of humans and Alphans alike. The Alphans will have the chance to rescue their fair damsel after all, but will they make it in time?

Three to five interesting facts about yourself or your writing. This can be your series, characters or even down to what you do in your down time.

-I listen to Al Green, Vangelis, and Sigur Ros ( ) when I write sex scenes.

-I put hot sauce on everything and have six different kinds in my refrigerator right now.

-I get really irritated when people interchange archaeology and palaeontology.

-In high school I played the clarinet, oboe, trombone, and baritone. Yes, I still have superior embouchure.
