LAUNCH PARTY & GIVEAWAY - TEMPTED is finally here!

"An entertaining and smoldering read."
--Publisher's Weekly starred review

"A passion-filled read."
--RT Book Reviews

"Dark, dangerous, and absolutely addicting."
--NYT Bestseller Christina Dodd


A dangerous secret. An even darker desire.
As daemons ravage the human realm, one Guardian's loyalty will be put to the ultimate test. Salvation hinges on a secret he's vowed to keep hidden and a smoldering desire he can never give in to.
No matter how tempted he may be...

After more than a year, TEMPTED is finally hitting store shelves! It's been a long haul, but I'm thrilled the Eternal Guardians are continuing on with Sourcebooks. And I'm even more excited that readers are finally getting to read Demetrius and Isadora's story. Passion, danger, suspense and excitement...it's all in there, along with a smoking hot romance RT Book Reviews describes as "...the perfect balance of emotion and explicitness."

DEMETRIUS--he's the hulking, brooding warrior even his fellow Guardians avoid. Too dark. Too damaged. And given his heritage, he knows it's best to keep everyone at arm's length.

Isadora is missing. The words pound through his head like a frantic drumbeat. For her own protection, Demetrius did all he could to avoid the fragile princess, his soul mate. And now she's gone--kidnapped. To get her back, he'll have to go to the black place in his soul he's always shunned. As daemons ravage the human realm and his loyalty to the Guardians is put to the ultimate test, Demetrius realizes that Isadora is stronger than anyone thought. And finally letting her into his heart may be the only way to save them both.

Visit my website to read an exclusive excerpt. And be sure to stop by my blog on September 6, 2011 for my release day party! And if that's not enough fun...follow me on my blog tour during the month of September for multiple chances to win both TEMPTED and the first two books in the Eternal Guardians series!

    Amelia - I hope you enjoy TEMPTED!

    Proserpine - Thanks for stopping by. Hoping you enjoy the Eternal Guardians!

    Grace - I'm working on book 5 right now. (Working title is UNCHAINED.) The hero in book 5 had something really horrible happen to him in TEMPTED and readers will learn more in ENRAPTURED (April 2012) (Yes...I'm quite mean!) He's definitely a dark and wounded hero...but I'm loving him.
