Writing in Progress (Ice Cold Lover, Her Dark Guardian & Believe)


Stone-Cold Lover is not far from its release date (whoo hoo!!) But in the meantime I have a few projects I'm working on that are coming along very nicely.

Ice Cold Lover is my next novella I hope to publish with Ellora's Cave. It features the daughter of the gargoyle hero and human heroine from SCL. This new heroine has a few body issues she has to deal with, as well as an obsessed, gorgeous, notorious bad guy... Oh dear!!

Her Dark Guardian is an old manuscript I resurrected that was originally aimed for Desire or Presents. This done well in the contest circuit, but it's simply too dark for category romance so I've decided (in my free time LOL) to turn this into a paranormal. Hmm. A super-model who returns home to her ex-lover - a reclusive artist. Should be interesting!

Last but definately not least, I'm also working on a single title (or perhaps mainstream) novel with my co-author - hey Kylie! - which is a bit of a learning curve from my usual comfortable paranormal niche. That being said, there's a real darkness to this book (can you sense a recurring theme here!) with paranormal elements (psychic, spirits) and a hero who is falling into drugs as quickly as he's falling for a single, pregnant woman who just moved in next door...

Now if only I could write as quickly as Ms Nora Roberts!
