Great news!! I have signed a contract to work on a 2 book (each) futuristic sci-fi continuity series with Shona Husk and Denise Rossetti. Yours to Uncover is the first of our six titles, which will be released from Pan Macmillan's Momentum around August this year. This will be followed by Shona's story, Yours to Command. Then Denises' story, Yours to Desire.
Here's my unedited blurb:
Yours to Uncover
It’s the year 2202. Earth is grossly overpopulated and seriously
polluted. Rita Songworth has spent half her twenty-two years trying to escape
the dying planet. It’s taken the last five of those years to realize making it
in the hard-ass infantry is her only way out, via space transporter, Earth Ship
But the journey to the new, far off colony, Unity, isn’t easy.
Rita has to resist an attraction to hard, brutish prisoner, Tristan MacFallan,
whose masterful hands create more than the beautiful art he’s been assigned to
create. His forbidden touch affects her profoundly and he sees things in her no
man ever has before. But obeying Zane, her ex-lover and malicious lieutenant, who
is appointed to keeping the prisoners under guard, comes at a high price. Is
she willing to sacrifice everything to keep her secret and her lover safe?
It's finally here!!! Release day for Seducing the Huntress! This is book 3 (but is also a standalone read) of the nightmix series - an erotic, dystopian, shape-shifter series. (try saying that flat out!) It's available now from the EC Jasmine Jade site and Amazon, as well as B&N and all good e-retailers! BLURB:
She wants to kill him. He wants to possess her body and give her ultimate pleasure. Isabella suffered an unimaginable loss at the teeth and claws of a vicious nightmix. She grew up wanting nothing more than to hunt and kill every last shape shifting black panther in the kingdom. What she doesn’t expect is to go from hunter to hunted. Never expects to be captured by the nightmix monster,
Reuben, and taken to his cabin, where he plays her body like a finely
tuned instrument. Their erotic connection is explosive, but Reuben is
the enemy. Or is he…
March 26th is release day for the third book of the Nightmix series, Seducing the Huntress. This is a standalone read and you don't need to read the other two books in order to understand what is going on (but feel free to buy them anyway hehe!!)

needed a job — he never expected to need his boss.
life can be pared down to one principle: Be as successful as possible by being
as single-minded as possible. But his commitment to his goal is tested upon
returning home to his mansion and finding his gorgeous new gardener in his
a student, and his new job is perfect: decent income and a place to study
that's quiet, peaceful, and stocked with useful resources. The last thing he
expects to find there is a stunning man who offers to open up all the doors
that Luke has yet to be brave enough to peek behind.
is happy to wait for Luke to come to him, but when he does, Thomas has no
intention of holding back...
studying architecture and you have some pretty awesome textbooks. I was just
making some notes.”
nodded mechanically and sat down in the chair opposite Luke. This was not what
he needed— to find out his gorgeous, young gardener was intelligent too. Crap.
Talk! Just talk to him. “How long have you got to go?”
He choked out.
groaned theatrically and rolled his eyes. “Two long years. But I’ll get there.”
smiled at the artless way Luke had of moving and talking. But the question was,
was he gay?Were his smiles a come-on,
or the act of a guileless young man?
blue eyes sparkled. “You’re home late, sir.”
opened his mouth and said something he had never murmured to a staff member
before, “You can call me Thomas if you like.”
cocked his head in an adorable way, his blue eyes showing surprise and
couldn’t stop the moan that escaped his lips at the sound of such a nickname
from this gorgeous young man.A name he
had banned all previous lovers and friends from using. He didn’t like the sound
of it, it sounded common. Well, it
don’t usually let people call me that.”
stood up and smiled. “Really? Why not?”
stood up also and moved forward so that they almost nose to nose. His need to
touch this guy was an almost painful yearning. Luke’s eyes widened in surprise
but the pupils dilated in arousal also. Thomas followed his instincts and
it sounds like something my lover would call me.”
blinked several times but didn’t move back.
took that as assent and lifted his hands to cup Luke’s jaw. His skin was soft,
with the faintest feeling of bristles against his palm. He brought his face a
scant inch closer.
felt Luke’s gasp against his lips but pressed forward and moaned as their skin
met. Luke’s lips were soft, juicy and full of potential. He stepped closer so
that their bodies were touching, Thomas’ cock hardened as it rubbed against the
younger man. He groaned again and coaxed Luke’s lips open.
opened to him slowly and Thomas took advantage, tasting and licking the inside
of Luke’s mouth. Enjoying the softness, the way Luke’s tongue hesitantly met
soft moan Luke emitted caused Thomas’s body to harden unbearably, and then Luke
was pushing him back with a gentle hand.
head was swimming as though he was drunk and he staggered back a few steps so
that he was in the centre of the room again. He was dizzy with pleasure and was
throwing caution to the wind. He knew he should have spoken to the head
gardener first to find out what sort of employee Luke was. He should have
talked to his lawyer, but he didn’t. He just opened his mouth and said what he
gonna have a bath. Wanna join me?”
mouth fell open as his eyes scanned down Thomas’ body. Thomas knew his erection
would be obvious in the dress pants he wore. It was hard and uncomfortable, but
he didn’t care. Luke needed to see what was on offer.
reached up and pulled his tie down, part of his seriously lust-fogged brain
wondering if he was about to be sued for sexual harassment.
He raised an eyebrow at the beautiful boy still staring at him.
threw his silk tie down onto the chair, shrugged off his jacket and began
unbuttoning his shirt. His stomach tightened in excitement as he waited for
Luke to make the next move.

romance twelve months ago. Before that she read sexy romance, skipping the plot
and looking for the ‘good bits.’ Since then she has written and obtained twenty
contracts of varying lengths for her erotic romance and erotica novels. She
absolutely LOVES reading and writing it! She has two other jobs, kids and a
hubby too – but writing is a passion that she has to indulge for fear of

is always an M/M story. She particularly enjoys writing Female dommes, but she
loves experimenting in all genres. She is learning to write and read more, one
step at a time. Soon, she’ll have stories published in every sub-genre of
erotic romance – well that’s her aim anyway.
Yes, I've been incredibly slack with my blogging lately, but I do have a reasonably good excuse - honest!! Happy to say I've completed my single title story, Dimensional! Now I just hope to find it a shiny new home lol. I've just sent the final edits of Seducing the Huntress, (book 3 of the Nightmix series) back to my Ellora's Cave editor, so there should be a cover reveal for that one soon! Yay! Love seeing a new cover for the first time! Shadow Hunter is also waiting at a publisher for a final yes or no, so that's really exciting too! Though of course the waiting patiently just kills me!!!! I have one more project up my sleeve, a sci-fi continuity, which I can't say anything more about until the contract is signed. But I'm really thrilled about this fabulous project! On the personal front - our house starts today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (anymore exclamation marks and I'll be sick lol) but WOOOOOTTTT!!! This has been a LONG way coming. I can't wait to see our house completed. Think that's about all to tell...more news from the slack blogger soon =))))

This is Little Foot, a grey Welsh Mountain pony (12.2hh) who has a whole lot of patience and even more stubbornness lol. I love this pony to bits. She taught all three of my girls to ride - no mean feat considering there is seventeen years between them. My eldest daughter is now 23, then there's Miss 15, and Miss 6. When we moved further North we had her trucked up along with her paddock mate. We only hope Little Foot will be around for a few more years to come as she's rather elderly now =) (ps - just realized I have no lovely photos of her with her summer coat and beautifully brushed!)
It's a lovely feeling to get fan mail, where a reader/s really gets your story and is emotionally connected to the characters. I received an email the other day from a lovely woman who loved our story, BELIEVE and felt as if the story was written just for her. Danni was also sweet enough to leave a 5 star review on Amazon for us. Here it is:
I’m going to say it straight out – get tissues. This book will tug at your heartstrings and then some.
centres on James and Josie, who grew up in a repressed household with
an alcoholic father and an emotionless mother. The siblings possess
psychic abilities, though James denies his. Josie, on the other hand, is
more intuitive and as a result, spends her life in and out of
institutions because she is unable to cope with the things she sees and
hears. This is exacerbated by the fact that her parents think she’s mad
and offer no support. Only James is sympathetic. James spends his life
thinking he’s nothing like his father only to discover his drug
addiction more than makes up for his father’s chosen poison. His career
as a doctor in training takes on a twist as he finds himself listening
to unknown instincts that make huge differences in the lives of the
people around him. He thinks the drugs are the reason he’s beginning to
see and hear things, but by the end of the story, even he ‘believes’
about himself what Josie has known all along. Together they repair
themselves and learn to overcome their miserable childhood and that’s
when the reader ‘believes’ in the power of love and faith.
story is punctuated with the most beautiful poetry, which leads the
reader further into the characters’ psyches and leaves hints of the tale
to come. The way you feel about particular characters at the beginning
of the story will be altered by the time you reach the end. The authors’
abilities to change your perceptions will amaze you. This story will
horrify you, make you look over your shoulder to see if anyone really is
there and take you on an emotional journey. I found this book
fascinating. I hope you do as well.
I'm taking part in a writing chain that is leaping
from one writer's blog to another. Very Cool! I was asked by the fabulously
talented S.E Gilchrist to take part next. I met S.E through an anthology idea
that blossomed into short stories through Momentum's Hot Down Under line. Since
then S.E has written books in sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary and everything in
between. You can find her here:
What am I
working on now:
I'm finishing off my contemporary single title
(with romantic and fantasy elements) and hope to either gain an agent for it or
sub it to a publisher very soon. Aside from that, waiting for edits on 3
my work differ from others of its genre?
I find that my erotic works aren't all about the
sex, I plot a lot of action and drama amongst the emotional and physical
aspects.I also like to create worlds (like my dystopian and alien worlds) that
are different from anything I've read.
Why do I
write what I do?
Because if I couldn't write what interested me I
wouldn't write at all. I love to explore different genres, heat levels and
characters. It's why I've written contemporary, sci-fi, paranormal and even
inspirational. If I wrote one type of genre or heat levelall the time I'd get bored and that wouldn't
be good for me or my readers lol
my writing process work?
I get up, check social media between emails, then I
do a bit of housework and eat brekky etc. After that I write when I can and
everything else revolves around it - except on school holidays, then things
change up a bit LOL. But I write something everyday, even if its only a couple
of hundred words and on a scrap of paper. Also if my muse is being ignorant I
know it's time to give my current ms a rest and work on something else. I
almost always have at least three manuscripts on the go at once, with a handful
more waiting their turn.

Cate Ellink became intrigued by the erotic when her
grandfather used to pass books to her father saying, “Don’t let the girls read
page X.” Although her mother and sisters never bothered to chase those pages,
Cate always did. Invariably, her imagination was better than what she read.
While pursuing a career in science, Cate amused
herself by writing about ordinary events and giving them an erotic twist. It’s
taken more than a few years to bravely expose her mind to the public. While the
events in her stories may have occurred, it’s highly likely that her
imagination is far more exciting than the reality.
Cate lives near the beach in NSW with a
