Okay, so that may, in fact, be a bit of hyperbole. But! I do have a bunch of awesome MM & MF BDSM erotic romance and Paranormal NA romance related book news to share.

Okay, first off, if you’re a fan of MM erotic romance and BDSM, Jess Jarman’s Nothing Serious is ah-maaaaaaaaa-zing! Seriously. It’s not only ridiculously hot, it also made me both laugh and cry – Jess’ emotional content is phenomenal.

Nothing Serious

Aaron Stevens likes his life the way it is. As a surgical resident, he is perfectly content with the fact that the precious hours he has outside the hospital revolve around taking care of his mother and sister. He doesn’t have the time or inclination for a serious relationship. So the fact his lover lives halfway around the world and is fine with jetting off to exotic locales a couple times a year for a few weeks of hot sex is as close to perfect as he can get.

The last thing Jack Hayes ever expected when his best friend got involved with an American was to hook up with her son. And he sure as hell never imagined it would continue for as long as it has. For years, he has been at Aaron’s beck and call, satisfied with submitting to him whenever Aaron and his busy life allow. But, after a change in his family’s company that has him looking for a new job, and possibly moving, Jack has begun to examine what he really wants in life and isn’t sure stolen moments here and there are enough anymore.

When Jack arrives to attend Aaron’s sister’s wedding, keeping what he and Aaron have a secret begins to take its toll. Aaron is unwilling to come out to his family, afraid of hurting them and ruining what should be the happiest day of his sister’s life. As much as Jack has come to love Aaron, he can’t bring himself to be the dirty secret in Aaron’s closet. Aaron has a choice to make, because the tighter he holds on to keeping their “nothing serious” arrangement, the closer he comes to losing everything.  Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Kobo, ARe

professor's student

Six weeks in Ireland on a Bronze Age archeological dig is exactly what Josie Cooper needs. She loves teaching, but fieldwork is where her heart is, and working with Professor Declan O’Shaughnessy is a dream come true…until she meets the man. Declan is brilliant, gorgeous, and unapologetically arrogant. By the end of the first week, Josie is ready to push him into the Atlantic.

Unfortunately, annoyance doesn’t stop her physical reaction to him. Nor does it stop the way every accidental touch makes her crave more. More of his hands on her skin. More of his lilting voice in her ear.

Knowing Josephine Cooper’s reputation in the archeology world, Declan is thrilled that she’d accepted his invitation to work the dig. However, he hadn’t counted on his overwhelming attraction to the American professor. Though he tries to maintain his distance and keep things professional between them, that plan goes to hell when he learns that Josephine returns his interest. And when an opportunity to act on that attraction, as well as explore her submission, presents itself, he jumps at it—taking complete control.

For the next five weeks, Josie agrees to submit to Declan. His instruction awakens needs she didn’t know she possessed, and she learns more about desire and herself than she would have thought possible. But what happens when their time is over, and Josie has to give up being his student to go back to being the professor again?

If paranormal erotic romance and/or a fan of new twists on Arthurian legend, you’ve got to get Jess Jarman’s The Deepest Cut. For starters, it’s FREE! Secondly, but far more importantly, it’s brilliant. And the the subsequent books, are too. Albion’s Circle is one of my all time favorite series.

For nineteen years, Anna has been plagued by dreams of lives lived only in legend. Finally free from the family that believed her hopeless and worthless, she’s ready to start her life over—alone.

When Anna meets an enigmatic stranger claiming to be the legendary wizard Merlin, she is forced to question the very reality she’s struggled to accept. With the mythic figures from her dreams intruding on her waking life, Anna learns that she’s been reborn to fight an ancient evil alongside King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

Caught in an ages old conflict, Anna is the key to stopping a dark magic that will destroy the world—and Merlin wants to make sure that this time, Anna isn’t alone.

After you finish that one, you’re gonna want to get In My Veins, too. I can’t tell you how much I adore this series. It’s true, I’m a sucker for all things Arthurian, but this reimagining of the mythos is just fantastic.

in my veins

 

Anna is his. Merlin has failed. The Circle is broken. After being defeated in every lifetime, Mordred believes he has finally won.

Even though Anna has little hope of gaining Merlin’s forgiveness for believing Mordred over him and the rest of the Circle, she isn’t giving up and vows to set things right. When an offer of help comes from an unlikely ally, Anna must trust her instincts—the very thing that got her into this mess in the first place.

Because more than just her survival hangs in the balance. Mordred took her for a reason. Anna is the key. The key to completing the Circle. The key to preventing unthinkable death and destruction at Mordred’s hand. The key to destroying the heart of a wizard whose love has followed her through the ages.

But Mordred has forgotten exactly what he is up against. Arthur and his Knights. The most powerful Magical to ever walk the Earth. And a love a thousand years in the making.

Edge of Darkness is the latest book in the Albion’s Circle series, and as much as I love the series as a whole, I think this one is my favorite. There may have been totally was ugly crying on my part near the end.

How far is too far? Where is the line that can’t be crossed? For Merlin, when it comes to Anna, the answers are easy. Too far doesn’t exist, and the uncrossable line has gotten pushed farther and farther away through the centuries until Merlin doesn’t see it anymore. And that becomes ever more clear to everyone as a new threat rises.

Being back with the Circle, back with Merlin—where she belongs—Anna should be happy. Her magic, finally free and within reach, and her memories following quickly, should be cause for celebration. But all of that is overshadowed, tainted by Mordred and the connection he’s forged between their minds. With Mordred in her head, taunting and manipulating her at every turn, Anna fears she’ll never truly be free.

Though his days as King of Camelot and High King of all of Albion are in a long, distant past, Arthur has never felt the weight of his crown as heavily as he does now, in this life. While having Anna with them and being able to complete the Circle for the first time since Camelot is an advantage Arthur cannot discount in the battle to come, the odds are certainly not in their favor. Not with an enemy who seems to always be always one step ahead. Not when the trust Arthur and the others have built over lifetimes together is dissolving beneath lies and secrets.

The Circle is faltering, and Mordred’s increasingly bold attempts against them are pushing them to the breaking point. If they can’t return to their former strength—back to the stuff of legends—to defeat the powerful Magical, someone may pay the ultimate price before the final battle even begins.

Okay, so I think that’s it for all the book news – for now, anyway. I’ll have two new releases coming up in October, but more on those later! But, for now, get reading! This stuff is awesome!

General Random Sorts of Questions 
for Jess Jarman


What’s a typical day like for you? I don’t think I have a typical day. LOL I could desperately use one, though. I think I could do with a bit of routine and organization in my life. 🙂
What do you consider your greatest accomplishment? Oh wow, big question… I’d have to say, personally, seeing my kids grow up to be responsible and caring people (they’re not all the way there but making progress) and knowing I played a bit of a role in that. Professionally? Writing and publishing the Albion’s Circle series. It was a leap of faith on my part, to be sure. The story was there and I so badly wanted to tell it but had so many doubts. I’d never written New Adult, never written in first person, never written anything like this at all. I had many, many moments of doubt and fears of falling short. So finishing and releasing two of the series so far… Yeah, say that is my greatest accomplishment professionally at this point.
Do you have any collections? LOL I just did a blog post about collections and realized the only ones I really have are way too many pictures of Colin Morgan and Bradley James.
Are there any skills you’d like to learn? I’d like to know how to knit. I can do basic knit and purl stitches, and can make a square/rectangle. Yes, a square/rectangle. That’s it. *sigh* I’d like to learn to knit more things because I love scarves (though I can DO basic scarves w/knit and purl….it’s a long rectangle I can do that! But you know different kinds would be nice), hats, sweaters, etc and would like to be able to  make them.
What’s your favorite word? Love. I know it’s a bit corny but someone saying “I love you” or as an endearment… *sigh* I LOVE love.
What’s your least favorite word? Pus. Because, well, PUS. Yuck.
What sound do you love? Waves.
What sound do you hate? Sound of someone vomiting. *shudder*
What’s your favorite curse word? Fuck.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt? This was actually a hard one because I love what I do and think it’s the greatest job EVAH. But if I had to choose, I’d say literature professor. I love the written word and would want to share that.
What profession would you not like to do? From experience, I know I couldn’t work in health care. Bless those who do. I worked as a nursing assistant for a while and I burned out quickly. Definitely not for me.
Dog or cat person? Actually love both, but will have to go with dog person because I’m more allergic to cats than dogs.
Coffee or tea? It used to be coffee, but I’m definitely more of a tea drinker now. And my gut thanks me.
City or country? Oh hard one. I prefer the country until I need something in the middle of the night and yearn for a 24/7 store. I like the convenience of the city. 
Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Trek
Buffy, Angel or Firefly? You can’t make me choose! Nope. I will rank them, though. Buffy, Firefly, Angel.
Pirate or ninja? Pirate. Arrrrrg.
Morning or night person? Night owl all the way. You really don’t want to experience me in the morning.
Procrastinator or get things done early? Total procrastinator. I own it.
Introvert or Extrovert? Introvert. Definitely need my alone time to recharge.
What do you like best about writing? Creating worlds and relationships and living vicariously through my characters.
What do you like least? When life gets in the way. Sometimes, it’s unavoidable, but sometimes, it’s a case of me needing to grow a pair and say no – and not feel guilty about it. Writing is such a huge part of who I am that when I don’t, it throws everything off.
If you were a song, which song would you be – and why? Matchbox Twenty’s “Unwell”. It speaks to me, I guess. I’ve dealt with depression in my life, and it’s taken me a long time to accept that it doesn’t define who I am. And also the downs? They’re temporary – “Stay a while and maybe then you’ll see a different side of me…” And that was a whole lot deeper of a question than at first glance. O.o

Book Related Questions

In My Veins is the second installment of your Albion’s Circle series, and having read it already, I’m here to say it’s freaking spectacular. Can you tell us what inspired the series?

First, thank you! I adore this series. I’ve always wanted to write something with Arthurian legend. I have mad, mad love for all things Arthurian. It’s just never happened until now. I had this inkling of an idea for a story—it all started with Anna. Her dreams, which she didn’t realize were memories from past lives, and how they affected her. The Arthurian stuff just layered in from there.
I really, really wanted to write it, but as I mentioned above the whole thing scared me—it was totally outside my comfort zone. Then, I had the idea that maybe the three of us who do Merlin Club could do something with this. Merlin Club…stories inspired by Arthurian Legend…it fit, yeah? 

And honestly it wasn’t intended to be a series, but as I got into book one, The Deepest Cut, it became abundantly clear that this wasn’t a story that could be told in one book. 

It’s no secret that I adored the first book in this series and I’m thrilled about this next installment, but for readers who haven’t read the first one yet, can you share a bit about Merlin, Anna and the Circle?

The Circle is a group of six. Three Magicals—Merlin, Morgana and Anna. Three non-Magicals—Arthur, Lancelot and Galahad. In their first life in Camelot, when Mordred became a threat to more than just the kingdom, the six came together and formed the Circle to defeat him. The catch was they would be brought back whenever magic threatens the world. They’ve been brought back many times, and the books focus on their current lives in modern times. 

In the original life, Merlin was cursed by Mordred to always feel the pain of losing Anna, to never find rest. So Merlin has spent every lifetime trying to save Anna and bring her back to the Circle. Until now, he’s failed, and that has had a profound effect on him. In this life, even when it seems like Anna is safe, the threat to her is always on Merlin’s mind, and he’ll do anything to eliminate that threat. 

Anna is complicated. The dreams she’s had since she was a child scare her and push her to do some pretty self-destructive things. When Merlin finds her and she finds out the dreams are actually memories, Anna has to deal with that, deal with discovering her magic and deal with the current magical threat they’ve been brought back to face. 

Can you tell us about any upcoming stories? What can we expect from the next book?

The third Albion’s Circle book, Edge of Darkness, will be out in February 2015. It will be following Anna and Merlin closely in their relationship as well as the big picture with Mordred and the threat he poses. This book will delve into Arthur more than the first two did—it’s great fun to get inside his head. There are some twists and turns in the next book, as well, but you’ll just have to wait for those. 

On other fronts, I haven’t abandoned erotic romance. I still love it and will continue to write it. Some upcoming projects—a younger man/older woman story with D/s elements, a paranormal MMF, a Yooper (!) story with ghosts and things that go bump in the night.

Yeah, I’ll be busy for a while. 😀
