New Submission and an Upcoming Release!

Last week was a busy week. I edited and turned around two novel length books and I still had the energy and enthusiasm to jump right into a new Sci-fi WIP. I don't know where it's coming from but my muse is happy and ready to work this summer. I'm not going to complain.

One of the books I finished last week was something completely new for me. It's more sensual than erotic and very romantic in an old-fashioned way. I submitted it to a new publisher who handles sweeter romance. It's a contemporary story and a post World War II era romance rolled into one. Two separate but strongly overlapping stories are told from two different perspectives. Part of the book takes place in the present with a granddaughter and is told third person. The other part of the story is the grandmother's POV told first person through her diary. The locations are the same but separated by nearly seven decades. Fate takes both women for a passionate ride but only one will get the happy ending she hoped for.

Fingers crossed the new publisher will be interested...

The other book is "Lord Griffin's Prize" which is part of Ellora's Cave upcoming book series Emerald Isle Fantasies. There are a lot of great books in this series, steamy adventures with otherworldly men, so please keep your eyes open.

Jennifer LaRose's "Phantom Mischief" releases next week June 26th! Yep he's a hot ghost.

(I love this cover!)

Part of the Emerald Isles Fantasies series
Tullamore Castle Ireland is an enchanted place where the unexpected happens. Phantom lovers materialize in haunted beds and a lonely griffin patrols the ramparts waiting to reclaim its mate. And that’s just the beginning.

For the adventure of a lifetime Maeve de’Burgo visits Tullamore to study genealogy. Through a magical act and time travel she becomes embroiled in a dangerous medieval romance and the unfinished life of her ancestor. Maeve gets thrown back in time to be captured, ravished and cherished as a war chief’s prize.

Ronan O’Griofa is a griffin-shifter, the most loyal of creatures. He’s been trapped in limbo as the avenging guardian of Tullamore since 1332 AD and longs to be free. When the soul of his wife returns to the castle he’s granted the privilege of becoming a man for one day to be her lover, win her heart and remind Maeve of a bond strong enough to last an eternity.

(I love this cover too!)

  5. Kat, despite choosing to write erotica, I am far more a fan of sweet romance. I would be super excited to read your new novel, should your publisher accept it (they will!). It sounds fantastic, and exactly the kind of thing I would love!
