Happy New Year!

Wow! Really? 2013? Already?
So, yeah, since I had a millennium baby, you know what that means? I'm going to have a teenager this year. Hmm...
But wait, there's more! I was born in 1973. Can't do the math that fast? I'm going to be 40 in August. I don't know what's worse... having a teenager or turning 40. I'll let you know.
Okay... let's talk about my writing goals instead. Shall we?
I've got a lot on the table. If you're an Ella fan you should be happy.
First up, I have a new series launching right out of the gate.
On January 7, 2013, Master of the Inn will release. I'm excited about this series. It's like nothing I've ever done before.
Master of the Inn is book one in a multi-book series that centers on Pleasure Inn and the couples who spend a weekend indulging in their fantasies. The first book introduces us to Logan and Elyse and we learn how the inn came to be. Each book to follow will feature a new couple but the reader will be able to keep up with Logan and Elyse's relationship as they progress. The books can be read out of order but Master of the Inn sets the stage.
Pleasure Inn… Where all of your fantasies become reality.
Executive chef Elyse Clapton has had it with city life. She’s spent the last few years building her cheating boyfriend’s trendy New York City restaurant into a success. When their relationship ends, so does her desire to be in his kitchen. She flees to a quaint inn she remembers visiting as a child. She gets more than she bargains for when she meets the sexy, reclusive inn keeper.
Handyman Logan Cole inherited Pleasure Inn against his wishes. Ever since he got caught up in a scandal involving another man’s wife, he keeps to himself – finding solace in a bottle. He didn’t realize how lonely he’d become until Elyse shows up on his porch. He’s instantly drawn to her and convinces her to stay at the Bed and Breakfast.
Elyse comes to town looking for a getaway. She never expects to fall for Logan. It doesn’t take her long to believe the inn’s motto. Logan’s dominance in the bedroom makes all of her fantasies a reality.
I'm currently working on the second book, Indulging the Professor. I should have the cover and blurb soon. Target release date will be in March.
If you've read Make Me Stay, you've met Martin. He was the sexy Dom who helped Gracie get her life back on track and reunited her with Cade. I felt Martin needed his HEA, so I wrote him his own book. Surrender to Me will release with Beachwalk Press in the spring. Stay tuned for details. I think you'll like what I've come up with for Martin :)
He falls for his sexy, not so submissive attorney. He's dominant but she refuses to kneel before him. Who will surrender first? I know :)
Cade and Gracie will make an appearance in this novel.
I'm in the process of writing my first paranormal. This one is a bit different for me. One, it's a paranormal. I've never done that before. I have a feisty witch who denies her birthright and an alpha warlock trapped in the past. It's also less erotic and more sensual for me (well, at least that's what I have outlined, so we'll see). I'll keep you updated but the title is Find Me. It's planned to be about 65K.

That's where I am the first half of 2013. Stay connected with me here or on FB. "Like" my author page for blurbs, excerpts and daily updates.

Have a happy, healthy and safe new year. I hope you'll get lost in my words...
