Excerpt from my Short Story for the “After Dark” Anthology

I’m so excited about the romance anthology After Dark coming out later this month (April 21, 2019).

Favorite fairy tales get a grown-up makeover. Exciting plots, sizzling passion and memorable love stories. Includes: The Ugly Duckling, Goldie Locks, Robin Hood, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Mother Hulda, Rumpelstiltskin, Pinocchio, The Goblin King, and Snow White.

Whether contemporary, magical fantasy or paranormal, they’re all romantic, passionate, sometimes funny, and always moving.

While we are waiting for the publication of my urban fantasy with a splash of sizzling romance, Rekindled Prophecy, due out in November 2019, I can introduce you to one of the sexiest supporting characters to cross the page – Adeline Marion, FBI agent by day/wolf by night. In After Dark Adeline gets her very own story and it is smoking hot. Although based on the legend of Robin Hood, Agent Marion is far from a damsel in distress. Don’t stand too close to the fire or you will most certainly get burned by this heat.

Here’s a couple excerpts to whet your appetite for After Dark and Robin Hood, Inc. — Prince of Hackers and Hearts: an urban fantasy retelling of Robin Hood set in Washington, DC (sexual rating: Explicit):

Taking a deep breath, Rob’s middle finger twitched a split second before decisively snapping down on the right-click button.

Transaction Confirmed.

The way her name rolled off his tongue, past his full lips sent a pulsating vibration through her limbs, radiating down to her core.

“Well, Robin,” she breathed, “what shall we do?” Their hands were still entwined.

His right eyebrow arched, almost disappearing under his shaggy hair. “Oh, I can think of a few things.”

He tisked through clenched teeth. “I said…patience. It will be worth your while, I promise. Now,” his other hand grasped her chin forcing her to look directly into his eyes, “…are you going to be a good girl?”

She bit her lower lip, but nodded.

Who had been the hunter and who had been the prey last night? She’d started the night looking for easy quarry to satisfy her primal needs, and he had definitely succeeded there. However, the warm and fuzzy feeling wrapped around her body like a
quilt made her feel less of a predator in the aftermath. She’d been caught unawares by his own vulnerability, that for a second the veil covering her own had been pulled aside.
