Samantha Demakis wants to finish her degree, not settle down and play house with a mate. But her birthright demands otherwise. In fact, even her wolf is rebelling against her plans. When a chance encounter reveals the man who makes her wolf howl, will she run or fight?

Seasoned Army vet Chase Michaels has been alone for seventy-five years. Somewhat resigned to never finding his true mate, he is shocked when his wolf reacts so strongly to a woman he runs into in the airport. Unprepared for the politics and snobbery of the noble families, Chase finds himself fighting in a different type of war–a war for the heart of a woman he knows should be his.

A lot of things are chasing Sam, but will the right man catch her in the end. Or will a barbaric tradition ruin her only chance at happiness?

 Book 1 in the Sanctuary, Texas series

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Heat: Super Hot with some light BDSM elements

Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.

Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.

Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.

Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?

Warning: The plot thickens with a passel of pissed off Olympians. Ares and Aphrodite are in for a double dose of trouble! More Olympians join the mix in Finding Hope: Pool of Souls Book 2.

Or will she run from the only man who could make her happy?

Adrian Colter, Nashville Police Detective and certifiable bachelor, puts his foot in his mouth in a big way when his roommate’s fiancé tries to match him up with her best friend. After making a horrible first impression, can he earn the trust of a woman who won’t speak a civil word to him?

Adrian isn’t the only one trying to earn the trust of a beautiful woman. While Ares fights to rebuild the trust he lost thousands of years ago with the Goddess of Love, his parents do what they do best —show off their greed and selfishness. Will he find the hope and forgiveness he so desperate seeks or will his parents destroy his chance at happiness?

 Long Excerpt (Beginning of Chapter One) 

His chair hit the wall with a heavy thud. He raced to the lobby. Karen Ramsey, his best friend’s wife, was hunched over her desk, her face twisted in pain. She wasn’t due for two weeks. Apparently the baby was calling an audible.he sound of a woman screaming in agony was not what Trevor MacLaughlin expected to hear on a quiet Tuesday morning at the office.

What the hell am I supposed to do now?

He ran to Karen’s side. She grabbed his hand, squeezing it hard enough to cut off his circulation and pop a few joints.

“Karen?”

She sucked in a few more breaths and wheezed, gradually releasing her death-grip on his hand. He flexed it, popping his knuckles back into alignment. Damn, she was strong.

“I thought they were just Braxton Hicks last night, bu—”

He winced. Her fingers clamped down hard and another wail filled the small office.

The growling scream tapered off and she glanced up, meeting his gaze. “I guess I was wrong,” she finished, so matter-of-factly, like she hadn’t just been screaming bloody murder.

“Braxton what?” he asked without thinking.

“Oh don’t worry, just get my bag out of the coat closet. I need a ride to the hospital.”

He stared. His brain hadn’t quite caught up with the situation. He’d known Karen for years and she never complained about anything. All the MacLaughlin brothers had watched over her during the pregnancy. Logan, her husband, had been deployed when she was twelve weeks along.

They’d brought her food everyday. Drove her to and from work and coddled her in every way they could devise. They discovered early, if they kept her fed and pampered she purred like a kitten 24/7. Even their mom and sister teased them about doting on her too much. But in their eyes, Karen was just an extension of the family and she’d kept MacLaughlin Corp. running smoothly for the past six years.

“Trevor! Now!”

Her snarl snapped him out of his daze.

“Unless you’d rather deliver this baby yourself?”

“No, ma’am.” He moved swiftly to the closet, retrieved her overnight bag, and was back at her side in seconds.

He walked her slowly out to his big dually pick-up, parked in the front lot, lifted her up, and placed her gently into the passenger seat. After clipping her seatbelt into place, he hurried around the truck and climbed in next to her.

They weren’t far from the hospital. Ten minutes and three contractions later, he whisked her through the sliding emergency room door.

“Call my mother before you come into the delivery room,” she hollered as the nurses wheeled her down the hallway.

“Into the…Karen,” he gulped. “I don’t know if—”

“You call my mom, Trevor MacLaughlin and get your ass in here with me until she arrives. I’m not doing this alone!”

Somewhere, TX is the town R.L Syme, Jodi Vaughn, KC Klein, Lavender Daye and I have worked super hard to create a world where our stories will overlap, characters will get to know each other, laugh together, love together, and cry together. We are so excited to bring you TEXAS SUNRISE, the first set of five novels that will introduce you to some of the people who live in Somewhere.

The first four books I have planned are centered around the VonBrandt family, a large extended family of werewolves that live in Somewhere in secret. The first is called TO SAVE A MATE. It's the 4th book in the TEXAS SUNRISE box set!

The VonBrandts own several ranches southwest of the town and have owned the land since the town was founded. They have a huge main estate house where the pack alphas, Tanya and Aaron VonBrandt live currently. Other family members also live on the land in different houses spread across three ranches.vonbrandt mansion in somewhere VonBrandt Oil Industries provides income for the pack, even though a lot of the family members work in town or have other businesses as well.

The family history and influence in the town will be explored throughout the upcoming books. In the meantime I thought I'd share the a little about the curse that turned them into wolves.
