L-O-V-E … the Valentine’s Day Gift Hop



Welcome all you romance fiends! And I can call you that because I’m one too! ūüėČ ‚̧ There’s rarely a better time to get your blood pumping and your heart racing than on Valentine’s Day! Though I’m not necessarily one of the gushy girls that goes ga-ga over Valentine’s Day, I’m not inclined to ignore a day that emphasizes love and romance. I spend a good¬†amount of my time writing about love and romance. I try to¬†create stories that make us believe that romance¬†and chivalry¬†are not dead and that love is worth fighting for…¬†but I do think love and romance should be celebrated every day, not just on Valentine’s Day! Right?!


I am happy to participate in Skye Warren’s Valentine’s Day Gift Hop. The prizes are great… a Kindle Paperwhite and digital new adult romance basket!

Plus, I’m giving away a free¬†ecopy of my latest erotic romance story. Panther Ridge is my story in the latest¬†Evernight Publishing anthology, Alpha’s Claim.

unnamed (7)

Nathan Thorne is many things. Confident. Proud. Strong. Ruggedly good-looking. And a firefighter. But what really makes him different from most men is that he’s part animal… literally…he shifts into a Florida panther. Nate has spent most of his life a loner, finding satisfaction in random women and roaming his one hundred fifty acres of Florida flatlands in Panther Ridge that his mother left him. He was content. But when Ciara Black enters Nate’s favorite hangout he doesn’t know what hit him. She’s everything he’s ever desired and he knows without a doubt that she’s his mate.

Ciara is on the run trying to escape her father and step-brother’s attempts to steal her Momma’s money. Life is hard and full of disappointments until she meets Nate Thorne. He turns her inside out with just a few words and a smile.

When someone threatens Ciara, Nate can’t do anything but protect what’s his. Can Ciara love him and the animal within?

If you want to see how I envisioned Nate and Ciara while I was creating their story, check out my Panther Ridge Pinterest board here.

    Candy. I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day so my first time getting something on Valentine’s day from a friend I suppose was the best Valentine’s Day present?
