Galactic Flame review

Wonderful to see a 4.5 star review for Galactic Flame - book 3 of the Alien Hunger series. This is what the wonderful Lisianthus from LASR (Long and Short Reviews) had to say:

From the moment Eden decides to take her sister’s place as Genesis’ princess and life mate, she’s troubled with guilt and worry that she doing it for selfish reasons.
Eden was a great character, I adored her. She wants to save her sister but once she met Genesis she wants him just for him. Mel Teshco sets this story up well, I understood both characters motivations.
Genesis is a fair and honest man. He wants Eden to love him and be happy on his planet. He is sweet in the way he does everything in his power to put her happiness first. He’s also extremely sexy and I’d love a Genesis of my own.
The alien planet that is Genesis’ home world is beautiful in its uniqueness. I can tell a lot of time and energy went into designing from the little details that made the world come alive for me. I also enjoyed seeing the way Earth changed after the introduction of aliens.
I haven’t read the rest of the books in the series but I easily immersed myself in the story and found myself reading late into the night. I couldn’t put it down, so I can easily say that it can be read as a standalone.
The story line was unique and fun. I highly recommend this story for science fiction romance lovers, it’s a sexy romp on a great red planet that I would love to be visit.

Some AWESOME books I've read lately

I've read some great books in the last few weeks and wanted to share them. All totally different genres and lengths but all wonderful =)

Skylark is quite possibly my favorite book this year so far, as good if not better than The Hunger Games. A crossover of genres - YA, post-apocalyptic, steampunk, dystopian, romance, fantasy. It truly has it all. A 5 star plus for this one! So thank you Meagan Spooner!
A quick summary: Lark discovers children are being harvested for their magic power to keep the city's power going and keep the walls intact to stop shadow people (cannibals) and other enemies from entering the 'safety' of their city. Trouble is she all but stumbles across a girl just like herself who is strung up with wires in her that drain her magic energy. Lark escapes and encounters a 'wild' boy who protects her as she journey's to the iron forest, where she discovers more magic within herself than she thought possible.

Erica Hayes always delivers with her dark urban fantasy and this short (free) story, Cherry Kisses gives a great taste of her distinct and visual writing talent. 
Quick Summary: Lena is more a trickster than witch, using her beauty and her street smarts to steal magic spells from the unwary Fae. But when a demon hires her to steal an amulet in hell, she's up against sexy smexy Ethan, whose fighting skill is unrivaled. She'll do anything to get her one wish... 5 stars

Cate Ellink's quirky voice and writing style sucked me in with this book, The Virginity Mission. Told in first person you really do feel for the heroine's inner struggle that includes losing her virginity at the ripe old age of twenty-one. 
Quick Summary: Mac enrols in a research trip in the rainforest and mangroves of North QLD, aware this is the perfect opportunity to lose her virginity. And  Jason - ex-army and leader of the expedition - is the perfect candidate. Watch the sparks fly even with Mac's insecurities.

Waving from the Cave =)

I'm literally waving from my cave today, going full speed ahead to finish the third book of my Nighmix series (Lusting the Enemy is book 1). Book 2, Abducting the Princess, is with my editor now, so I hope to be seeing a cover for that soon! Covers are my greatest love BWG!

And coming soon, something TOTALLY different, is my co-authored book (Kylie Sheaffe is the other author), Believe. It's an inspirational, but it's not a straight contemporary. Think ghosts, visions, psychics and mental institutions, and that's Believe. We should have an official blurb for that soon =)

Enraptured (New Release!!!)

Enraptured is out at the Ellora's Cave website! If you love Pretty Woman, I hope you'll also love this story. It's one of my few contemporaries I've done =))
This should also be available from Amazon and B&N, as well as all other great e-tailers in a few days. Will post when I know.

In the meantime, happy reading!


Kate grew up knowing how badly bullying could batter self-esteem. That was why she never imagined herself as beautiful and sophisticated Brandy, high-class call girl.
She loves sex, loves her job that gives her self-assurance and financial security. Being on the arms and in the beds of the most influential and powerful men in Australia doesn’t hurt either.
When billionaire philanthropist Blaine starts taking more than a professional interest in her—both in and out of bed-- Kate has to decide whether to run, or stay and risk it all for the man she not only lusts after, but loves.

One more book...

Shona Husk has a new release out today! OUTCAST PRINCE is the first in a trilogy through Sourcebooks. This one will be added to my TBR tower for sure!


Caspian Mort can feel the history in anything he touches, a gift he inherited from his father, the Crown Prince of Annwyn. Devastated over his ex-wife's infidelity, Caspian has withdrawn from human contact except when working as an antiques dealer.

While assessing the contents of the historic Callaway House he encounters the beautiful Lydia Callaway and senses that her home is haunted by a banished fairy. But what does the dangerous exile want? Unbeknownst to Lydia, she's the owner of the last remaining portal to Annwyn--a mirror hidden somewhere in the house. To keep Lydia safe, Caspian will have to divulge the secrets of his heritage, and risk losing his heart again.

Latest Writing Update

It's been a while since my last post, so I thought I'd do a quick fill-in of where I'm at with my writing at the moment. I...
