A Visit to Savvy Saturday

0f28a-image001My new release, Ely’s Epiphany, is featured today on Champagne’s Savvy Saturday. It’s my hottest story ever, a contemporary military M/M story with a Christmas theme.

Ely and Todd are ex-Green Berets who raised heiress Lexie Carter who is now a nurse in the Army Nurse Corps and married to Army Ranger Taylor Jackson.  Since Taylor is often away from home, Ely and Todd are permanent residents in the Jackson mansion. All is not well, however, as Christmas approaches and Lexie is determined to stick her nose in her guardians’ business. Read the post HERE or click cover to buy.

Release Day for Ely’s Epiphany

Ely’s Epiphany (Lexie’s Guys, 2), an Erotic Contemporary Romance/M-M, is out today!  My first M/M and probably my HOTTEST book ever! Loved the two gay ex-military who raised Lexie (Search & Rescue,  Lexie’s Guys, 1), so gave them their own story. Will they have a HEA or totally screw things up? Check out the blurb:

For Todd Anderson, a West Point graduate from a wealthy family, it was love at first sight. Living with Ely wasn’t easy, but it was the only life for him. When Ely plays too nice, Todd fears his partner—his first and only lover who introduced him to the gay lifestyle and sizzling hot sex—is preparing him for a Christmas breakup. Will this Christmas be their last together?
Ex-Green Beret Ely Locklear survived a childhood filled with poverty and abuse by building a wall around his heart. Although the millionaire mercenary and entrepreneur has a family and partner who love him, the wall and rough edges remain. When his ward’s new Army Ranger husband shows him that loving someone isn’t a weakness, he wonders if it’s too late for a fresh start with his partner.

My Last Orphan

   Ely’s Epiphany, my last Secret Cravings orphan, is a contemporary M/M military erotic Christmas romance. It is a humorous, scorching hot, stand-alone sequel to Search & Rescue that contains very explicit M/M sex scenes and graphic language. It is scheduled for release in November in Champagne Book Group’s Carnal Passions line. Ely and Todd, now living in a palatial home in South Georgia with Lexie (their former ward) and her new husband, are ex-Green Beret gay partners who are in the process of examining their relationship. It’s a difficult, at times humorous, proposition, since they’re not on the same page.Here’s the blurb:

    Will Christmas bring a breakup or a new beginning for ex-Green Beret partners Ely and Todd? For Todd Anderson, a West Point graduate from a wealthy family, it was love at first sight. Living with Ely wasn’t easy, but it was the only life for him. When Ely plays too nice, Todd fears his partner—his first and only lover who introduced him to the gay lifestyle and sizzling hot sex—is preparing him for a Christmas breakup. Will this Christmas be their last together?

     Ex-Green Beret Ely Locklear survived a childhood filled with poverty and abuse by building a wall around his heart. Although the millionaire mercenary and entrepreneur has a family and partner who love him, the wall and rough edges remain. When his ward’s new Army Ranger husband shows him that loving someone isn’t a weakness, he wonders if it’s too late for a fresh start with his partner.

In Ely’s Epiphany, Ely is a master chef. While I’m not a master chef, I love to cook and used my own recipes in the story. I’ll share them as we near publication.   Rita

My Orphans Have A Home

Great news (for me, anyway)! My two short contemporary military romances that were orphaned when Secret Cravings closed last year will be published by Champagne Book Group (CBG). The two-book series, “Lexie’s Guys,” will be published in CBG’s erotic line, Carnal Passions. Thanks to CBG for allowing me to expand and update both books. Check out the blurb for Search & Rescue, a sizzling M/F romance, which is scheduled for publication in October, 2016:

   Not every search ends with a rescue. One look at Captain Taylor Jackson at a Career Day at Spring Hill College and wealthy coed Lexie Carter knew he was The One. In six months they’re engaged and the wedding set for after graduation. When Taylor is reported killed in action in Afghanistan two months before their wedding, Lexie is devastated, her hopes for a family of her own crushed. Can she survive a future without Taylor or will she succumb to her grief?

   Army Ranger Taylor Jackson fell in love at first sight with young Lexie Carter. While on a mission in Afghanistan, he is captured by insurgents after taking his brother’s place on patrol. When Taylor escapes and returns home on what should have been their wedding day, Lexie has disappeared under ominous circumstances. Can he find her in time to rescue her from her fate?

I look forward to sharing an excerpt or two when edits are completed. Later this week, Ely’s Epiphany.  Rita

A Change is Coming

   Notice anything new about my webpage? EVERYTHING!! I updated my webpage with a new background and graphics, removed my old data, and checked and edited all my book purchase/review links.

   I also revised my tagline from “Celebrating Romance Across the Ages” to “Risqué Tales of Romance, Adventure & the Paranormal” which better reflects my writing plans for the future, while covering most of the past. Even my new signature graphic reflects my writing plans and matches my webpage (Check it out at the end of this post).

   WHerTeddyBar88x132hy change my writing focus? While I’ve written in several romantic sub-genre, I personally enjoy writing paranormal stories. To be honest, other than the Lyons’ Den series, my personal favorite story was “Nimue’s Daughter” a contemporary Arthurian Armageddon in a short story collection, Secret Whispers. My erotic mythological contemporary stories Her Teddy Bare  &  Conquering Cupid were loads of fun to write. (Click pics to the left to buy) I’ve already plotted two additional stories in the “Cupid’s Back in Business Series.”

ConqueringCupid180x280J   While I LOVE history and enjoy the research, I find myself watching paranormal stories – even the bad ones. I admit to geeking out on current stellar paranormal shows like Supernatural, Dark Matter, The Librarians, and Grimm to some not-so-stellar monster and shark movies, including the Sharknado series and ALL of SyFy’s recent Shark and Monster Week. What are your paranormal favorites?
