Cursed will launch Decadent's new Tease line!

I am so thrilled that my paranormal novella, Cursed, will be the first title Decadent will release to launch its new Tease line!

The Tease Allure line is for all things paranormal:

From daring vampires, shape-shifters, zombies, werewolves, witches/warlocks, and mediums with psychic abilities, you’ll find them all here!

The cover for Cursed is amazing. I wish I could share it with you! But for now, it has to stay under wraps. Next month, I'll be able to replace this placeholder with the real thing. :)

Here’s a peek at the short blurb:

Ten days of freedom. That’s all Fate had allotted me each year. In the streets of Venice, I could walk among them. Mingle. Belong.
During Carnevale, they had no idea who I was. What I was.
For ten days, it didn’t matter.
Until I met her.

Decadent's wonderful team has been busy behind the scenes, planning an array of events and goodies for readers! I'm planning some cool stuff of my own. Stay tuned for more details...

It would make a great news headline, wouldn't it? :)  Today, Hywela Lyn was kind enough to let Death, Azrael and Damien take over her blog for a bit. I hope you'll pop over and say hi!

Cover Reveal: Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye

Tall, dark, and lethal...

Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome-pure catnip to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too.

With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much. As their investigation turns into all-out war with an organized crime ring, only Nick can protect her. And only Becca can heal the scars no one else sees.

Desire is the easy part. Love is as hard as it gets. Good thing Nick is always up for a challenge...

I hope everyone enjoyed the Rites of Spring blog hop! I love being part of such a great giveaway.

The Grand Prize winners have been announced! 

1st Place: Kindle Fire  - Entry #4 Karl

2nd Place: $50 Amazon gift certificate  - Entry #187 Chum B.
Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog, too! Your responses made me wish for warm weather, bird song and flowers. I can't wait to start planting again. It will have to wait, because we're due for more snow here tomorrow, ugh!
At least it's good reading (and writing) weather! So without further delay, I'll announce the winner of my giveaway - winner's choice of either of my Decadent 1NS stories:


I'll email you today, magic (love that email address, btw).
New reviews!
Last week, I had a nice surprise - well, two actually! Two reviews for my fun futuristic fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing, Zombie-Killing Princesses.
Dark Divas Reviews gave it 5 stars, and a Recommended Read! Woot!
The reviewer said:
I love fairy tales and zombies, usually not together, but when I saw The 12 Dancing Zombie Killing Princesses I couldn’t help myself.
The 12 Dancing Zombie Killing Princesses is a short story and I finished it in just a few hours, but boy is there a lot going on. Lots of action, and romance. The zombies in this book aren’t your run of the mill undead, which Will and Meilin figure out quite fast. The plot sucked me in, moving fast and keeping me entertained as well as on the edge of my seat. Each new development pulled me deeper into the story wanting to know what was going to happen and if they would save Meilin’s family.

Julie's Book Reviews gave it 4 stars!
The reviewer said:
This is a short book about Will, who returns to City from war wants to become a zombie fighter, on his way home he encounters the 12 adopted daughters of the city's mayor who appear to have some plans of their own ...
I found it easy to slip into the authors world and also liked the way she humanised the zombies even if they are the bad guys!
I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I'm always grateful when a reviewer takes the time to read my work. But it's such a thrill when they love it!
Have a great Sunday, everyone!
