December FUN

DECEMBER 17TH  WINNER:
AFSHAN

NEXT CONTEST: DECEMBER 24TH

Continues, so does the contest--today's question is below! I said there would be surprises--and today one is happening. You'll have to enter to find out...*shameless grinning*

I promised a little history on how Shepherd's Watch came about. Growing up, I had lots of dogs, but there was one that became special. When I first saw him--I had to have him. My dad was not sold on the idea of spending money on a dog, or adding a large shepherd to our family. He said no. Needless to say, my heart was broken. Days went by, soon I went back to gathering neighborhood dogs and going on mock safaris into the woods.

One night my dad woke me up with, you guessed it, a furball in his hands. He was a carpenter and he'd made a deal with the man to do some work on his house in exchange for the puppy. That night, and every night after, until he was gone--Coco slept at the foot of my bed.

My dad passed away early this year, and for a while my writing didn't flow. One morning I woke up with a vivid memory of this, and Shepherd's Watch was born. *sigh* I miss them both, but in my mind--they're together somewhere in the universe, both watching over me.

I do have a video for Serviced (see below), and one that will combine all three books coming soon! I know, I know...you're dying to see it, right? *laughing*

TODAY'S QUESTION:
What 6 people am I having over for dinner?

You can find the answer in Selena Illyria's wonderful interview with me HERE. Email answer to jhalisteele at yahoo.com. This time, the 3rd person to respond will win.

THE GIFT excerpt and buy link HERE.
Blurb:
Rad and Crayton - the same yet different. They meet as often as possible throughout the year to be together. Christmastime is particularly special; it's when they celebrate their bonding. Mermen, one born in the south Caribbean sea, the other from the frozen waters surrounding Iceland--neither can exist for long in the other's climate.

Rad returns to his summer home in Pennsylvania, determined it will be the last time. The cold has taken a deadly toll on him. Cray can go no farther south, so they will have to give up their bonding celebration, and the Christmas holiday together.

Cray discovers a way to defeat Mother Nature, but it may already be too late.

Now for my vision of these wonderful mermen:

Whipped Cream/LASR

Do you have any short pieces lying around that need a home? Something you have, but didn't know where to place it. Whipped Cream Reviews is looking for short (1000 - 1500 words), erotic romance fiction for their Thrifty Thursdays, where readers go and read for free ( http://tinyurl.com/nltnhp ). From first hand experience, I can tell you the exposure is great, and they give you a nifty cover too!
All genres are welcome as long as the story has strong romantic elements. Additionally, all the stories accepted at Whipped Cream MUST have love and romance as central -- it's not just about sex. A "Happy Ever After" (or at least "Hopefully Ever After") is also a required, fundamental part of all the stories they publish.

More information, including how to submit your story, may be found here: http://tinyurl.com/29p5gba

The Gift

I'm adding a Jimmy Thomas cover to my collection...I'm in love!! Thanks to Silver Publishing, and the very talented Reese Dante.

It's for Silver's 25 Days of Christmas anthology, which will be available in its entirety in print format. Each author's individual story will be released during December in eBook, and the cover will distinguish by color of the ribbon whether it's M/F (red ribbon) or M/M (blue ribbon).

I can't wait for everyone to meet Rad and Crayton--they'll be wrapped in a blue bow.

THE GIFT

FIRE... ICE...

Celebrate the coming Holiday with both...

Rad and Crayton - the same yet different. They meet as often as possible throughout the year to be together. Christmastime is particularly special, it's when they celebrate their bonding. Mermen, one born in the south Caribbean sea, the other from the frozen waters surrounding Iceland--neither can exist for long in the other's climate.

Rad returns to his summer home in Pennsylvania, determined it will be the last time. The cold has taken a deadly toll on him. Cray can go no farther south, so they will have to give up their bonding celebration, and the Christmas holiday together.

Cray discovers a way to defeat Mother Nature, but it may already be too late.

Fall

Hibernation time! Oh, it's so cold out...well, to me it's freezing. I'm a spring baby, I prefer summer temperatures, and it always goes too fast. I consider fall and winter a rest period. Going out in weather below 70 degrees doesn't thrill me. There's finding a jacket or coat that's warm enough, gloves, the whole dressing warmer thing eludes me. I seem to never have enough on!

Bears definitely have the right idea -- hide in a cave until the spring breeze blows!

Yet, I find the fall foliage has some of the prettiest colors. The reds are deeper, the oranges blaze like a fire. Yellow, the yellows are bright, vivid, and look so alive. I often look out my window and wonder, feeling like it does out there, how can it look so damn beautiful?

*Sigh* Me, waiting for springtime, flowers in bloom, trees opening their leaves -- nature taking a deep breath of fresh air, sending a warm breeze our way.

Some pretty pictures:

GUARDED is available...

Today at Changeling Press!!

One stroke of his tongue and you're his forever.
Experience the true meaning of doggy-style.
Blurb:
Wade Alsatian is stuck guarding the owner of the escort service he frequents. He doesn't count on the sexy as hell woman tying him in knots and driving him insane with her mouth and body
Jetta Volker still carries scars from a dog attack. Now she's left in the care of a huge shepherd, and afraid to move in her own home. But it's for other reasons she waits for her guard to return. His scent triggers a need she has ignored far too long. Jetta gave up on men -- but she wants this one.

Breaking through barriers and accepting the scars from their past may tear them apart.

EXCERPT:
A scuffling sound at the opposite end of the alleyway caught his attention. He spun on his heels just in time to see a man carrying someone. The growls alerted him -- the dogs were back -- and instantly, they attacked the stranger. He dropped the body against the dumpster when the animals pounced on him. Bloodcurdling screams echoed through the quiet night. Victoria was beside him in a flash, and with her fingers in her mouth, she sounded a sharp whistle.

The dogs released their catch and swung in their direction, growling. Baring their canines, a course of howls followed before they retreated back into the street. The man scrambled to his feet and limped off behind them.

Wade broke into a run, pursuing the injured stranger. He passed the body sprawled in the filth. A woman.

"Oh, my God! Jetta. Damn it, I told you this was going to happen." Stopping at the mouth of the alley, he glanced back and watched Victoria flop down beside the unconscious body. "Let him go, Wade, help me."

He was unable to change into his shepherd in front of Victoria, and it was unlikely at this hour in the morning that anyone else would stop the felon. He wouldn't forget the man's odor.

Wade's attention became riveted to the body slumped against the wall. His nostrils flared at the familiar scent dancing around his head but he couldn't place it.

Victoria ripped a piece of the lady's shirt and attempted to clean her face. His nostrils flared wider when the smell wafted up his nose. Elegant Escorts.

This woman was the proprietor of the business he used to procure the women who met his needs. Wade had never seen the owner, but her scent surrounded her office and it had always enticed him. What was she doing beat-up in an alley, and how the hell did Victoria Germaine know her? Shit, this could turn out to be a real mess. "I got her." Wade bent down and lifted her gingerly. "Lead the way to your place."

Partway down the alley, she winced and her body bowed out of his arms. Her shirt was now torn, but there wasn't much blood and there were no visible injuries. Her fists, balled in tight knots, pressed against her stomach. Trying hard not to jostle her, he lengthened his steps, hoping they didn't have far to go.

Her hair was dark and hung past her shoulders. Pale skin revealed she didn't spend much time in the sun. Her nose turned up at the tip, giving her a young, soft look. Tears stained her rounded cheeks, and he noticed a slight swelling on the left side of her jaw.

Wade couldn't help staring at her breasts since they were only partially covered by the ripped shirt. Where was the blood coming from?

The hiss of air drew his attention. Her eyes were open. Hazel green flecked with gold. Beautiful. They stretched wide with fear. A scream full of terror barreled past her lips and into the night air. He cringed at the high pitch, his gut tightening at the sound.

"You're safe." He tilted her so she could see Victoria. The scream withered away but she struggled in his arms. Wade was at a loss on how to deal with her.

"Hurry," Victoria yelled back as she rounded the corner a few feet in front of him.

Slowing his step, he whispered in the woman's ear, "Shh, no one will ever hurt you again." He stroked his tongue over her brow and down her cheek. He swept it over her lips, and his heart bumped against his rib cage. That was his shepherd. Dogs enjoyed tasting and lapping their bodies, and anyone else's.

God only knows why, but it quieted Jetta. Dark eyelashes fluttered to her cheeks and her breathing slowed. She'd passed out again.

"I'll find that bastard and tear his hands off for daring to touch you." Energy zinged through his limbs, making him move faster. Wade didn't understand what was happening, but he knew one thing. He meant every word.

Exciting news...

Where has the time gone? Fall is here and Halloween is fast approaching. Paranormal Romantics is planning an awesome celebration and we're giving away a NOOK loaded with some good reads! Stay tuned for more information and get ready for a blogging good time.

More news...

Hope in Love received 5 tea cups from Happily Ever After Reviews! Of course that put a big grin on my face. Here's what Hunter said: The writing is beautiful and well done. The characters are charming, difficult, and for an angel and an exulted human, they feel very real. You can read the full review at Happily Ever After Reviews. And remember, you can now buy it in print from Ellora's Cave. Right now I'm working on edits for Repent in Love which will be released soon.

Exciting news...

Hope in Love is now available in print from Ellora's Cave! If you like to feel the book in your hands, grab a copy here: http://www.jasminejade.com/p-8757-hope-in-love.aspx

Wasn't quite sure how this would feel--it's pretty damn nice!!

Don't miss the beginning of the Angels in Love!

BLURB:
The world is changing. Hope is fading. Darkness beckons. And one angel holds the answer.


Tired of death, destruction and mankind’s race to ruination, Ramiel, archangel of hope, finds it harder and harder to care about those he’s meant to help. Now, the Fates have decreed that Ramiel must mate with Yael, an exulted human. On his shoulders rides the universe’s only hope for survival, but the ties that bind him to Yael force him to face his own unexpected reckoning.

Yael, elevated to heaven to live out her days in peace, recoils from the sadness and shadows of death in Ramiel’s eyes. Yet the need to ease the despair haunting him is stronger. During nights of searing sensuality, Yael and Ramiel light an erotic fire between them that will not be extinguished.

As the combined forces of the heavens try to tear them apart, Ramiel must find a way to hold on to the love he finds with Yael, or an end will come, so devastating that Heaven will drop to its knees.

Repent in Love is coming soon.

BLURB:
Uriel wants the one woman he cannot possess.
Every angel knows the dire consequence for attempting to hold power over life and death as the beautiful Fates do. Uri, the angel of repentance, isn’t worried about a brief fling for pleasure. But too late he realizes he needs more than a warm body to extinguish the flames of desire—he needs to have all of her—body and soul.

Morta burns just as hot for her archangel. It has been that way for centuries. But it can never be. She is forbidden to align herself with anyone, especially an angel. After a few fevered nights spent in Uri’s arms, she knows there will be no repenting for her sin. Morta cannot let go of the only being in the universe who rocks her world.

Willing to chance death, Uriel holds the key to the one creature that can bring them together. If he opens that door, life will cease to exist as they know it.
