The Prince and the Omega is now available for pre-order – at a special price!

Whew! It’s been a whirlwind of a few days, compounded by linkage fail on my part. But the BIG news is that The Prince and the Omega is now up for pre-order on Amazon – and I’m trying something new by giving it a special pre-order price of 99 cents for the next few days. (I’ll kick the price upwards on Thursday, and then again the day before release, so lock in your sale price now!)

The Prince and the Omega

Rowan’s not royalty – and that’s fine by him.

Omega Rowan Thornton has never been so glad he’s not considered royalty. Especially since his best friend Princess Celia is stuck bonding with a foreign prince she’s never even met. Celia’s solution? Ask Rowan to flirt with someone, anyone, during her engagement ball so she can live a romantic entanglement vicariously through him.

Well, that’s what best friends are for, right?

Gus is royal to the bone – and it’s never bothered him before.

Prince Gaspar – better known as Gus – isn’t the type of alpha to fall in love at the drop of a hat, or at the staged farce of a romantic ball. He’s agreed to an arranged marriage because it’s his duty – not his desire. When his half-brother suggests he take a last chance at having what he really wants before getting tied down to a foreign princess, Gus has no intention of following through… until he meets the handsome omega commoner with the adorable smile.

It’s not like Gus is going to lose his heart or anything, right?

It was only a single night – but the consequences could be greater than their lifetimes.

Gus and Rowan both know that a lifetime spent together is impossible – but for a single hour, they just don’t care. One night of giving into their passion has consequences neither of them anticipated… but will it dismantle the fragile truce between their countries? And will one courtier’s jealousy end up destroying everything they both hold dear?

The Prince and the Omega is a stand-alone m/m mpreg omegaverse non-shifter romance with an HEA ending. It has secret passageways, loyal friendships, garden labyrinths, and a prince in disguise.


Creating the .mobi and .pdf files has been the bane of my existence this week – I feel like every time I insert the links and save the file, despite checking and rechecking, when I go back to the completed .mobi and .pdf, all the links have switched around. (So if you click on the Amazon link, you end up on Goodreads. If you click on Goodreads, you end up

Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

on… well, also Goodreads, but the main page and not the book’s page.) And just when I finally get it all straightened out… the links refuse to show in the KDP Preview, but they exist in the PDF copy!  ARGH. I have NO idea what I’m doing wrong, but half the time when this happens, it all works out perfectly the following day, so I’m going to try again tomorrow.

Beyond that… it’s going swimmingly here. I’ve got a few ideas for the next couple of books – and even a sequel to Omega Nanny in mind. (Cameron and Desmond really do deserve their own happy ending, after all.)

But in the meantime: yay for pre-order week! Go get your copy now!

A Christmas Surprise!

It’s official… I’m going to publish a Christmas-themed story next week! I’ve been trying to write something since August, and I’ve discovered that it’s really difficult to write something for one holiday when you’re on the other side of calendar. But after November, I needed something to cheer me up – and for some reason, writing a flirty, funny, sexy little Christmas story about two guy who fall into love fit the bill exactly.

A Christmas Caroling is with the betas now, and I’m tweaking a few things here and there. I’ve also been scurrying to get all of the other details that go along with publishing a book set – such as writing the blurb, setting up the Goodreads entry, and ordering a cover. I was thinking I’d give premade covers a try this time – but it’s surprisingly hard to find a Christmassy cover that features two guys. WHO KNEW. I ended up commissioning a cover from Amourisa Designs, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Look at my men! Look at the pretty Christmas lights! Look at the gorgeous font for the title! I love it.

The last thing alpha Rudy Mitchell wants to do is spend the evening caroling with the local community center – especially since he’s been paired up with the omega dork wearing the ridiculous Christmas sweater. But when the omega is injured during their walk, Rudy’s protective instincts kick into gear – and he finds himself singing a whole different song.

Omega Harry Chen just wants a little Christmas cheer before he leaves on a six-month-long apprenticeship on the other side of the world. He doesn’t plan on falling on some black ice… or falling in love with his caroling partner. Now Harry’s half a world away… and wondering how he’s going to tell Rudy about the Christmas surprise neither of them anticipated.

When Harry’s apprenticeship is over – will Rudy greet Harry and their surprise with open arms? Or will next Christmas feature solo acts only?

A Christmas Caroling is an alpha/omega non-shifter mpreg romance. It features horrible Christmas sweaters, beautifully painted glass bottles, and an HEA ending.

it was nice to write something so quickly like this – the story’s much shorter than anything else, somewhere around 22,000 words. Light, sweet, sexy, and a guaranteed happy ending all around.

Of course, the tricky part is getting all the pieces together… especially since I’ve recently become enamored with Yuri on Ice, a Japanese rom-com anime about a male figure skater and his male coach falling in love. It’s adorable. It’s my first foray into anime, and I’m absolutely loving every minute of it. I highly, highly recommend watching if you haven’t already! Just be sure you don’t have any projects due, it’s kind of addictive. 🙂

I don’t have an exact release date just yet, but I suspect it’ll be toward the end of next week. It’s such a sweet little story – I’m sure you’re all going to love it, and Rudy and Harry, as much as I do.

The Country Alpha is out!

It’s official – both versions of The Country Alpha are available for purchase on Amazon Kindle! Each are priced at $2.99, or if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read them both for free!

I couldn’t be more pleased with the early reviews already coming in:

tca_m-m3

“I love this book!…  I got trapped by the story, felt in love with the protagonists and I actually devoured the book. because I simply couldn’t. Put. It. Down.” (Five stars on Amazon!)

 

“[The] storyline keeps the reader turning page after page to see what happens next.” (Five stars on Amazon!)

“Veronica and Jake are both well thought out characters, and we spend enough time with each that neither feels like a plot device in the other’s story. Their journey was engaging enough that I had intended to only read over breakfast and kept going until I finished it.” (Five stars on Goodreads!)

It’s been such an interesting journey getting these books ready for release – and I’m so glad to finally share them with you. I especially can’t wait to hear what the folks who read both of them think!

 

 

The Omega Nanny Cover Reveal!

The clock is winding closer and closer to April 26 – and I’ve got the most delicious cover to reveal for The Omega Nanny. R.A. Steffan, who designed the cover for The Country Omega, has designed a beautiful cover for my newest release, and I’m super excited to share it with you!

TheOmegaNanny_cover2

 

I’m not one for “casting” my books (that is, finding models or actors who match my characters), but I have to say I love the cover models Steffan found for Thomas and Kieran. I love how Thomas is looking right at me (and that open shirt collar! Hnnngggg, yes please), and I totally want to sink my hands into Kieran’s hair.

I particularly like that Steffan included the coffee shop background – because while I’ve never been a big coffee drinker (I have to add so much milk and sugar, it ceases to be coffee and instead becomes frappuccino), I love a good coffee shop. More to the point, I love writing in a good coffee shop!  For a while, I had an app on my laptop that basically played background coffee shop noise so you could pretend you were in a coffee shop instead of at home (or at work, or anywhere else that was sadly not a coffee shop).

Of course, I couldn’t write about a coffee shop and not experiment in my own kitchen with what The Coffee Pot’s manager, Cameron, serves her customers!  One of the drinks Cameron tries out is a molasses-flavored chocolate and coffee concoction. If you’ve never baked or cooked with molasses – it’s the super sweet syrup that makes gingerbread taste fantastic, and when mixed with warmed milk, it ends up tasting like a spicy, caramelized, super-sweet drinkable memory of Christmas.

(Fanciful? Sure. Accurate? Oh yeah.)

Neither Cameron nor Kieran can think of a good name for their creation – but maybe you can. Here’s the recipe, if you want to give it a try. If you don’t own a French press, prepare the coffee as you normally would, but brew it with the cocoa added to the grounds. If you don’t own a French press – and you’re only a sometime-drinker like me – they’re fantastic because you can pick up a basic one for under $15 at a local discount housewares supply store, it doesn’t take up a lot of space, and you can use it for other things like tea or cocoa.

Cameron's Chocolate and Molasses Coffee

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
  • 2 tablespoons coffee grounds
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 10 ounces hot water
  • 2-4 teaspoons molasses
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  1. Combine coffee grounds and cocoa powder in a French press. Add hot water, cover, and brew for 5-8 minutes. (Do NOT let the press touch the top of the liquid. It won’t disturb the brewing process, but it can result in grounds filtering into your finished drink. The longer the brew, the stronger the coffee will be.)
  2. While the coffee is brewing, mix the molasses and half-and-half in your favorite large mug. (16oz is perfect.)
  3. When the brewing is complete, depress the filter on the French press. Slowly pour out the coffee into the prepared mug. Stir and enjoy!

You can add additional flavoring – such as ground cinnamon, a caramel drizzle, or whipped cream (topped with a caramel drizzle and ground cinnamon even). You can also stir the drink with a cinnamon stick if you want to be fancy!

So can you think of a fancy title for the drink? If you do, let me know – and if I like it, I might just put you in one of my upcoming novels!
