I have a bummer announcement today. March 1st was supposed to be the fourth book release of the Birds of Prey. Unfortunately, Steph has been under the weather and I had a move that interfered with writing. I’m sorry to say that we have to push it back to April. Steph needs to catch up on her solo books from her illness and I’m moving this Friday.
I am so sorry to disappoint you all and promise that after I settle in not only will I catch up but strive to get a few more books out to you. My next book will be out April 1st, Full Moon Hellhound.
On a side note, I’ve had the amazing Jenny Steel reorganize my website. The menu now has all the series separated and in reading order. Also, there is a new addition, a prequel to Peanut Butter and Jelly for Two. Find out a little more about Phillips family!
So on to the giveaway!
As a way to apologize, I’d like to do a mega giveaway today. A $20 Amazon E-gift card. All you have to do is to enter is leave a comment below with your email addy. Winner will be picked March 5th.
Again my apologies to you all.
Big squishy hugs,
I have a couple announcements.
First the winner of the Amazon card is Jennifer. Congrats Jennifer! Thank you all for entering.
I’ll be at a couple places this week and there will be a ton of giveaways.
TRS is having a Valentine’s celebration. Here is the link: www.trsparties.com
I also have an exclusive excerpt of OMG! I Poisoned My Valentine which is now available for preorder at All Romance eBooks.
On Friday, I’ll be over at Top to Bottom reviews doing and interview and giveaway there as well.
Lastly, I have a couple questions for you all and would really appreciate the feedback.
I’d love to do more giveaways on here. Would you prefer designated dates so you can know when they will be or two weekly contest so that you don’t have to jump on one particular date? Example March 1-7 and then March 14-21?
I don’t usually do this either but would some of you like me to once a month do a PDF backlist giveaway to add to the Amazon and Omni Bucks giveawys? I haven’t in the past but I can add it all if you are interested?
Thank you and have a great day!
I hope everyone is hanging in there with their respective weather. Some are freezing and some are melting. Hang in there all.
I have several updates. The first is when are my books coming out in 2014? I have an answer woohoo! It’ll be easier to track them because at eXtasy, I’ll be having a book come out the first of every month. I’ll keep you up to date on the MLR ones. The next one is this Valentine’s day, OMG! I Poisoned my Valentine. Followed by one in April.
Here is a little info on my Valentine’s book coming February 14th:
Romantic dinner for two, check. Valentine chocolates, check. Emergency visit to the hospital…oh crap!
Kevin lucked out when he found a place to live off campus with sexy grad student, Brady. Kevin’s learned to live with all of Brady’s quirks including living with Brady’s mean-ass long-haired fluffy feline, Cat. However, with all the quirks it doesn’t stop Kevin from falling for his roommate. While grocery shopping for dinner, he picks up a box of Valentine’s chocolates for Brady to make it the icebreaker he needs to show he cares. But what happens next is anything but romantic. How the heck do you ask someone to forgive them when you poison them with their Valentine?
Here is the Blurb:
Asking someone out for Valentine’s Day is simple, getting them there without a vehicle? Not so easy.
Shaun works at the local flower shop while going to college full time. As Valentine’s Day approaches, he has to watch all the people come in and get flowers for their significant other. Wishing he had a Valentine, he didn’t expect a sexy man to walk right in the shop and ask him out. Ian has watched his friends find their partners all year, and when one forces him to go to the flower shop, he spots the sexiest geek he’s ever laid eyes on. Asking him out is easy, going on a date without a car…oh crap!
The last bit of info before I do the giveaway: Please please feel free to email me if you ever have any questions or just to say a warm hello. I absolutely love hearing from you all. :D Here is my email: jackie.nacht@ yahoo.com.
Now giveaway time!
Today I’m going to do a $10 Amazon giveaway. To enter: What is your favorite genre? Shifters? Vampires? Historical? Contemporary? Let me know. :D For me, I think I lean toward Shifters and Fantasy (Alternate Worlds) . I can’t seem to get enough. Feel free to let me know what you love and give a shout out to your fav book and author!
Winner will be picked February 9th.
I hope everyone is well. I had a moment of crazy health this week and trying to pull myself out of it. I had a weird reaction to the flu shot and am only able to pop in and out because it sacked all my energy and left me with a killer headache. The body aches, holy smokes…yikes!
I did want to pop on real fast and let you all know who won the name contest. The winner is Mandy. Thank you all for participating. Those were some amazing names. I’ll have another contest coming up shortly.
A huge congrats to my friend on the release of Blessed With A Curse! Here is the blurb and excerpt for the book that is now available at MLR Press!
When the past calls Storm Gennaro for assistance he willingly comes to help the man who walked away from him. Thirty years is a long time to be parted from the one person meant to stand at your side forever.
Heath Madden is sick, and his family call Storm to help save him. All the hurt and betrayal suffered at the man’s hands resurfaces, but not everything is as it seems.
The past has come back to wreak havoc on their lives and as they dig deeper they realise they aren’t the only ones whose lives are being played with.
Blessed With a Curse Excerpt
The murmuring of voices in the room pulled Heath back into the land of the living. His heart raced as he wondered if Storm was still there. Part of him hoped that the man had left to allow him some peace, but the more selfish part of him wanted Storm to still be there, worrying over him. Blinking rapidly, he waited for his eyes to adjust to the light.
“He’s awake,” Ian said from somewhere nearby.
Callie came over and peered down at him. “How are you feeling?” There was such sadness in her eyes.
“Where’s Storm?” His throat felt dry. These days, he could never quite seem to quench his constant thirst.
“Gone,” Trace stated as he came and joined the others beside the bed. “He left as soon as he told us what was wrong with you.”
There was something going on, something they were afraid to tell him. “And?”
Tears leaked out of Callie’s eyes and ran down her face. “Storm says you’ve been poisoned. Someone is trying to kill you.”
Trace glared down at Heath, and he cringed. “You knew what our safety rules have always been—don’t eat or drink anything we haven’t prepared ourselves. What the hell were you thinking?”
“I haven’t. I mean, I, along with all the rest of you, know the danger. There isn’t anything I have ingested that one of us didn’t prepare.” He stared at them all, and it hit him hard that once Storm had found out he was dying, he’d walked away. Being mates obviously didn’t mean that much to the man. He was probably out there right now, fucking someone else without even giving Heath a minute’s thought. Lucky he hadn’t let Storm know how much his being back hurt. He wouldn’t give his so-called mate the satisfaction of laughing in his face. Still, he couldn’t help but ask, “Is he coming back?”
“I don’t think so,” Ian said quietly. “He was very pissed off and angry when he told us what was wrong with you. We may have had some words, and he isn’t very happy with any of us right now.”
Heath wondered what could have gone down that had them all so upset. “What happened?” He grimaced as another wave of nausea rushed through him like a tidal wave.
“Um…he may have told us that not everything we’ve heard about him is true,” Trace said
Callie jumped into the conversation. “He told us to sit down and think about all the things we have heard about him, and where he was at those times. Once we did, we would see the truth.”
“And?” he asked when they all fell silent.
Ian coughed and looked ashamed. “When we sat down and did what he asked, we realised there was no way he could have done those things. Especially the ones immediately after we all turned away from him.”
“What the hell are you talking about?” There was no way Storm was innocent. Heath didn’t want to hear that he had wronged his mate for all those years for no reason.
Trace frowned. “We did a little digging. When we walked away and left Storm in the nightclub the night of the fight, he was arrested. Storm spent the next year behind bars in a human prison, so there was no way he could have been in any of those photos you received. The time frame isn’t possible. As much as I hate to admit it, I think Storm is innocent.”
“But Ian and I saw him practically fucking that woman, didn’t we? We saw it with our own eyes.”
Ian nodded, “But he did try and explain to us that she was his working partner, and we didn’t believe him. It turns out Storm owns a detective agency, and the woman we saw was Maggie Margaret–she really was his business partner. She was killed that same night. The job they were on was a setup, and all hell broke loose. About a year later he got a new partner by the name of Dean Birkwell, and no, I don’t think they are in any sort of relationship. I think that if we keep digging we will find out he hasn’t done most, and maybe not any, of the things he’s been accused of.”
Pain arced through Heath as he finally understood what was happening. “Fuck me, what have I done?”
“Don’t you mean what have we all done?” Callie said sadly. “We turned our backs on him when he needed us most, and then when we finally track him down, it’s only to use him for his abilities.”
“I hate to admit it, but he was really cut when he left here. I know he wanted to stay, but he left so you wouldn’t have to see him when you woke up,” Trace told Heath.
Dizziness swamped Heath when he tried to sit up. It took three attempts for him to complete the task. “I need to find him.” He turned to his sister. “How did you find him?”
“I called his Skype name. Surprisingly, he’s never changed it.”
“Get me to the computer. I need to talk to him.” He waited impatiently as Callie gently pushed him back onto the bed and Trace went to grab the laptop. He dialled in the contact name he had known so well and used so often. Back then, before the fateful night, he and Storm had been the best of friends.
And then he had hurt him.
The face appearing on the screen was not one he knew, but one he’d seen before, and a surge of jealousy washed over him. “I want to talk to Storm.”
“He’s sleeping right now, and I won’t wake him up. Not even for you.” The man glared out from the screen at him.
“You don’t even know me,” Heath snarled.
The other man snorted in disgust. “I may not have personally met you, but I’ve been guarding you ever since Storm and I hooked up.”
The words “hooked up” clamped around Heath’s heart and squeezed tight. “Are you fucking him?”
“That, sir, is none of your business. Who the hell do you think you are to make a claim on him now?” The anger rolling off the other man had Heath almost willing to shut the link.
“Please, Dean, I really need to see Storm. I need to talk to him.” If Dean was startled by the use of his name, he didn’t show it.
Dean stared back at him thoughtfully. “Things aren’t always what they seem. I think it might be best if I bring you here because this link may not be safe, and Storm has already had someone following him today. I won’t risk him going out again this soon. If you can get to the transport station on Elkin Street in the next ten minutes, I’ll swing by and pick you all up. Be waiting at the side entrance.” He paused as if in thought. “Yes, it’s best if all of you come, because whoever started this whole mess thirty years ago isn’t done playing with any of you yet.”
“But I want—”
Dean cut him off. “Just be there. This is your one and only chance of making things right with Storm, and if you are playing him—then you will regret it, because I will make you pay for the rest of your miserable life.”
Heath inhaled sharply as Dean’s eyes bled out until they were solely black. The vision only lasted for a second before Dean blinked, and his gaze was once again his silver-grey colour. “Okay, we’ll be there.”
Dean disconnected, and Heath pulled in a slow breath before he spoke to the others in the room. “You heard the man. We need to get to the station on time.”
“Do you think it’s a trap?” Ian asked as he began gathering their belongings.
“No,” Trace said. “Whatever we assumed, I don’t believe Storm would be involved in what’s happening to Heath now. I think he was sincere in what he told us earlier.” Heath sat there and watched the others get things organised when a thought struck him. “Am I really dying?” he asked the room at large. When they remained silent, he had the answer.
If he was going to die, he wanted to finally tell the man who was his mate exactly how he felt about him. He didn’t want to leave this world without first having told Storm that he had always loved him, even when he was pissed beyond belief at him. In the last twenty-nine years they had crossed paths exactly three times, and each time they had wound up having sex, yet never once did the words “I love you” pass either man’s lips. The sexual encounters were a need that struck them every nine years, and so far they had avoided each other in between. Heath knew that he had callously used the man who would have quite willingly offered him the world. At the time he had felt justified in holding onto the hurt and betrayal he thought Storm had incurred, and couldn’t even allow himself to offer the slightest bit of comfort in return. Every time they parted, he knew, he took another piece of Storm’s heart with him.
The reason he couldn’t comfort his mate was that each time he left Storm, something terrible always happened to him. The first time he had nearly been run over, and to this day, he believed the driver was aiming with the intent to kill. The second time, he had been beaten so severely that he had ended up in a hospital for the next two weeks. The third time, in the middle of the previous year, he had no sooner left Storm than he saw another man entering his mate’s lodgings, and as he stood there, he had watched them embrace. After witnessing this, Heath had turned and walked away, determined never again to go near his mate. Now he had a name to go with the man who had torn his heart apart almost a year earlier–Dean Birkwell.
Hope everyone is staying warm?. I think snuggles are in order to get through this winter. lol It’s been crazy cold where I live and at this point it’ll take all summer to thaw me out.
When Rayce finds he has two paths before him, the unknown consequence is the only alternative to help the man he loves survive.
Rayce is sent on a recon mission to find out if hellhounds are in Lansing. What he discovers on his way is his mate, Peyton, has followed him into the very heart of danger. Peyton has loved Rayce from the moment Rayce saved him. He knows he probably shouldn’t be following Rayce, but the instinct driving him to protect the man he has already fallen for causes him to go recklessly into the city. All is not as it seems, and Peyton will have to find strength to survive for not only himself but his mate and friends as well.
So it’s giveaway time! This time I’m doing a giveaway for $10 All Romance Omni Bucks. To enter, I’m looking for the name of Malach’s mate who is coming up in the series soon.

Here’s what I’ve been tweaking and finishing up. Both are coming out December 15th.

I’ll be on FB posting times of when I’ll be on there and then I’ll post on here next weekend as well so you can catch us for a chance to win. The other place I’ll be is here celebrating my release of Peanut Butter and Jelly for Two coming out at MLR Press. How am I celebrating that? I’m going to giveaway a Nook Glowlight So you have two spots on one day to enter for a chance to win a Nook.
So that’s where I’ll be.
So have I made up for being naughty? No…Okay here’s a teaser of Sappy Pine Trees.
“We have two kinds of trees on the farm, Frasier fir and Douglas fir. All you have to do…” Am I an evil son of a bitch for downplaying that? God, I hope not. “…is help the customers when they are trying to decide on a tree. Some will…take their time. Just be patient. I have a pocket knife for you to use when you need to cut the twine.”
Grant nodded. “Sounds easy. I think I can handle that.”
Boy, I hope that Grant didn’t just curse himself.
An hour later and Wyatt wanted to strangle Grant. Not only had he cursed himself but Wyatt as well. Fuck, he’d never had a tree fall on him. Not only had it happened once but twice in the same hour! If he would have been paying attention instead of checking out Grant, he might have prevented the embarrassing moments, but instead, he had pine needles embedded in his knit cap.
Okay I’m out. Hugs!
Previous Amazon winner was Judi P from the Nov 20th. Thanks All for entering
