I am wildly attracted to enormous, massively strong, heavily endowed minds that can jackhammer my intellect and make my toes curl.  Nothin' beats a dude with a well-hung medulla.

There's nothing sexier in this world than a mature man who doesn't lose his glue over the silly stuff in life.   In all the books I love, the common thread is that the hero is mature.  If he's got a great sense of humor, then wrap him up and send him home with me.  I'll introduce him to the rest of my book boyfriend harem.  

I don't know that there are many of us ladies that don't love a man with a big, firm brain.  I mean, he doesn't have to recite poetry, but I do love those men that have a grip on the world.  They read, they have analytic minds, they think for goodness sake!  A man who's not afraid of thinking or admitting to it is seriously sexy!  

I suppose it all has something to do with recognizing that it is a woman's brain and how the man handles it that makes him so attractive.  Hallelujah for some muscle, but seriously...if a man can flex his intellect in the right direction...well, to quote E.L James:  oh my!

Bottom line:  bring on the brains, boys.  BRING. IT. ON.

I haven't done a lot of advertising about Dimension Thieves, since things have been a little busy on my end--but after I got some great feedback from my amazing beta, M.R. Polish, I thought maybe you'd like a sneak peek too.  

The following is the Prologue to the first episode of Dimension Thieves, my new serial of shorts, coming January 31.  New episodes will be available every month, for the entire year.  

I hope you enjoy!


She realized now that they were hopeless amateurs, huddling around the fire deep in the Alaskan Bush.  
They’d lived in Oregon, for Christ’s sake.  In a damn short plat, with food stores and neighbors, gas stations and schools.  How did they ever believe they could make it here?  
The truth was, they hadn’t believed that.  It’s just that they didn’t have a choice.  It was either try to survive as outlanders in the remote bush or accept whatever fortune President Baro dictated to their lower, social class.  
She understood that now, but she had to keep all her worries buried.  The children were frightened enough, cold enough, hungry enough that she didn’t have time or ability to voice her worry.  She had to keep up a calm front for them and focus purely on their survival.
The children wedged between them for warmth, her husband clutched the squealing transmitter in his hand.  It whistled when he played with the tiny buttons, trying to catch a signal.
“Turn it off,” she snapped.  Her babies were shaking.  They knew better than to cry—the tears would sting and burn their delicate skin.  But she couldn’t stand to hear another damn word of misery and that was all that came out of the tiny black box in her husband’s palm.  He swiped one viscous hand through the air to shut her up.
“Listen!” he snarled.  The box spit and crackled and words came.  They weren’t safe from any language.
“New South Wales is a safe town now. Queensland is a safe town now.  Citizens who resist President Baro’s edict will be put to death immediately.  Please do not resist.  Droning will effect only those necessary.  Please do not flee your towns. Bounty hunters will capture those who try and they will be droned or put to death immediately.  Tasmania is a safe town now…”  
The list went on and on.  Her husband swore and spat, the spittle crackling as it hit the ground.  
“They’re in Australia now,” he said.  The children whimpered at his tone, so she tried to draw the two little ones closer.
Mmm hmm was all she said.
“Those bastards say droning only effects those necessary, but then they say that anyone who flees will be droned or put to death?” her husband ranted.  “But they don’t mention that everyone is fucking necessary!  They’ve been droning almost everyone in every town across the map!  They’re only sparing the upper classes!  Who do they think they are, splitting us up into fucking levels? There’s the upper class and then, there’s us.”
“Danny, please…”
He stood, the transmitter continuing to squeal and list towns, some in the United States, some across the ocean. 
“No place is safe!” he shouted at her.  “We’re freezing out here, but if we were back at home, they’d drone us or worse!  Didn’t I say, when the President droned the prisoners and the homeless—didn’t I say this would happen?  And then the bastard sent forces into Europe and Asia.  He’s not making the world a safer place, he’s making it his!  Didn’t I say this would happen?”
“You did,” she agreed.  She hoped her soft voice would be soothing, but their oldest began to cry.  “Please stop, Danny, please stop now.  You’re scaring—”
“How can I stop?” He crumbled down on the log that held the four of them, the whole thing shaking beneath them, the fire snapping at the steel toes of his boots.  He began to sob into the mittens that hadn’t kept his fingertips from frostbite.  “We’re going to…”
“Sir,” the flat voice boomed from beyond the ring of light cast by their fire.  Her spine went rigid and her littlest whimpered.  
They’d been found. The guards entered their clearing.  Surrounded them.
Her husband stood slowly, as if he would surrender, but with one wink to her, she knew.  He was the man she’d married, after all.  Her hero.  He would go down fighting.  He would want her to run.
But she was the woman he’d married, after all.  The girl with the soft heart, the one who had always wanted children.  She’d cried the day they were born, kissing their tiny hands with promises that she would now keep.  She would not leave her babies motherless.  He had to know that she would surrender upon his death.

 As the armed guards closed in on them, she smiled.  Most of it was shock, but part of it was knowing that her children would not die in Alaska.  The three of them would survive, dammit, in some small way, they would survive.

The Dimension Thieves - Releases JANUARY 31

Hey all!

Just wanted to let you know- Dimension Thieves is coming out January 31!  I'm crazy happy to bring you this exciting, New Adult, 12 episode serial of time-traveling shorts that will be part of the UtopYA Collection.  You'll get one episode each month, from January through December 2015.

Check out the cover copy:

Antythera is the new Earth.  
Because that’s what President Baro, ruler of the planet, wants to call it.  
And if you don’t agree, the President will have you Droned.

The world has become a much smaller place since the lower and middle classes have been converted to mindless servants.  Free will, granted only to the elite, is in jeopardy of complete extinction.  

But Force Steele, son to one of the President’s highest ranking advisors, can’t live under the thumb of his controlling father, or the President, any longer.  Force has dedicated himself to eradicating Droning, but when the President orders the Antidote Gear destroyed—the part of the machine that could free the drones by reversing the program that controls them—all is lost.  Lacking necessary materials, there is literally no way in Force’s world to replace the one-of-a-kind gear.

Force’s only choice is to partner with shifty mechanic, Calerbius Brown, and embark on a risky mission that will take Force and his rag-tag crew across the lateral dimensions, where they must often steal materials—even from themselves—in order to fix their own dwindling world.

I hope you'll enjoy it!

Before I give you the details of BOTH available preorders...WHAT is this book, you ask?  

Well, just cozy up right here *pat pat* and I'll tell you all about Jes, whose lousy ex told her she was vanilla.  I know, right?  He actually said that!  
So, what did Jes do?  She dumped the jerk and joined The Release Club, a hidden swinger's club located in the dangerous heart of the city.

Obvs, this beginning trilogy in the series is NOT for readers under 18 years of age.  It's so fiercely hot- especially once you meet the majorly handsome Daire- it might not even be permitted for the younguns under 85 years of age.  Shoot, we might need to up the rating to a thousand XXX and only let in the 101 year olds.  IT'S THAT HOT!!    

How do you get your hands on Daire?
How do you take the tour into the Club's Dark Room or claim your spot on one of the leather-clad love seats in the movie room?  
How do you get the key to the Fantasy Room???
How does one preorder these naughty books discreetly? 

Well, my darlings, it's simple.  You do so with just two, delicious little clicks.
Each click will only cost you 99 pennies and no one ever has to know.

Jezebel and Daire (Book One)
Jezebel Joins (Book Two)

Book One in the trilogy will release December 7th, 2014...ONLY DAYS FROM NOW... HURRY...and, trust me, you do not want to miss one second, trying to remember the release date as you scroll through Amazon to find it.  Not when you can click right now and have it in your hands the very second it goes live!!!   You certainly don't want to be fumbling when Daire is ready with his patient and practiced fingers to help Jezebel through step one of becoming a member!  

Book Two releases December 21, 2014 and Book Three comes for you January 4, 2015.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
