Exclusive Contest to Win a Signed Book!

Would you like to win a copy of the first book of my B*E*A*S*T* series? What if I signed it? With a personalized message?? :D

Well here's your chance! I'll be holding a separate contest each month until the release of MARK OF THE B*E*A*S*T*. Each contest will be for a signed print copy of one of the books in the series.

And for the month of June, that book will be THE B*E*A*S*T* WITHIN.


On the run, out of luck, and out of time–can Noah save the woman he loves from the very agency that made him a monster?

When Lanie Erickson is thrown from her car in a horrific accident, she never dreams she’ll be saved by a white tiger! Nor does she think meeting the man who claims to be the tiger’s ‘friend’ will change her life forever.

Noah Carpenter has a terrible secret. Mutated genetically by the agency known as B*E*A*S*T*, Noah is a shifter, able to change his shape at will. But he escapes the agency that made him a monster, and now he’s on the run.

As Noah remembers more about who he used to be, his attraction for Lanie grows until it cannot be denied. Even though Lanie knows of his savage side, she welcomes him with open arms. But when B*E*A*S*T* suddenly abducts her, can Noah save the woman he loves from the torture he once endured? And can he do it even if it means killing anyone who gets in his way?


What do you have to do to be entered? It's simple folks. Respond to THIS THREAD, not the thread about the new release, not the thread about the book cover, not the thread that overviews the series, THIS VERY CONTEST THREAD. If you post a reply, just a "Hey, how's it goin'" gets you entered. I will only count your reply once, so please don't spam this thread. I will pick a winner on June 30th.

This contest is exclusive to my B*E*A*S*T* blog. Feel free to spread the word. Woohoo!

Oh No He Didn't...

Rogan: "That son of a bitch! Noah, I swear to Christ I'm going to kick that boy's ass when I see him again."

Noah: "Get in line. Jet and Trevor have already left looking for him."

Rogan: "Gadammit! When will these guys ever learn? We're not superhuman."

Wade: "Uh, yeah, we kinda are."

Rogan: "Shut the hell up, Cougar. Who's talking to you?"

Noah: "Calm down, Wolfe. Mac might be an idiot but he's not stupid."

Rogan: "He went to the Everglades by himself, Noah."

Noah: "I know."

Rogan: "To the third B*E*A*S*T* compound."

Noah: "I know."

Rogan: "I think he's pretty damned stupid! He has no back up. He has no friggin' plan. All he has is a few tranqs and some of that serum that makes it so we can't shift for a few hours."

Wade: "He knows Lucian's safeword. At least he can say that if he gets ambushed by shifters."

Rogan: "Again, who's talking to you?"

Noah: "Rogan, don't be an ass."

Rogan: "No, seriously. We had to clean up Wade's mess, as I recall. Went in guns-a-blazin' just like our boy Mac."

Wade: "And Noah didn't? Or what about you, Mr. Wolfe? Huh? When you found out you had a wife, nothing could have stopped you from claiming her."

Rogan: "Yeah, but she wasn't at a heavily-guarded B*E*A*S*T* compound!"

Wade: "True, but you lead Sean right to her. Blew her house to Kingdom Come. That was a smooth move."

Noah: "Guys, guys, look. We've all got baggage. Robyn is Mac's baggage. He hasn't claimed her, but damn, she might as well be his mate. We've all seen the way he is around her. I don't blame him for not wanting to wait for us to make up our minds on how to storm the place. We were dragging our feet."

Rogan: "We were trying to find a tactical way in without getting our asses handed to us and thrown back into a cell for reprogramming."

Wade: "Have a little faith in the guy, Rogan. He knows what he's doing. He took down the compound in Oregon without us."

Rogan: "With the help of Jet and Trevor!"

Noah: "And Robyn."

Rogan: "All right, fine, fine. He knows what he's doing, I'll give you that much. But if B*E*A*S*T* doesn't kill the bastard, I will."

I Won't Stop Until I Find Her...

Two months. Two goddamn months! That's how long I've been looking for Robyn Groves. She's a snowy owl. She's absolutely gorgeous. And she's mine.

Lucian Carver's going to rue the day he ever took her from me. Noah, Rogan, Wade and I have been searching for her in Florida, along with Jet and Trevor. We think we might have found the third B*E*A*S*T* compound in the Everglades. But Christ, the others are dragging their feet! Should we be stealthy? Or should we storm the place? Obviously, I'm all for Option #2.

If we don't do something and quick, I'm going to go storm the place my friggin' self. Hell, might do it anyway. Robyn is in there. I can't wait any longer. Carver is torturing her. It'll be my pleasure to sink my teeth into his throat. I've never been one to like the taste of blood, but just the thought of killing that bastard makes my mouth water. Well, that, and feeling Robyn pressed against me once more, sighing into my ear and begging me to make love to her.

Screw it. The others can do what they like. I'm going to bust Robyn out of there once and for all.

I'm coming, baby.

Hold on for me.

Wow. Isn't it awesome?? That's my boy Mac, with his eye flashing gold in mid-shift into a jaguar. He's looking out through a cut-out of an owl, a snowy owl to be exact. I had requested this cover be in brown tones and I love the warmth of the color the cover art chose.


Coming to Champagne Books September 7th, 2010!

B*E*A*S*T* For Dummies

MySpace Layouts & Tools

Since we are now down to a few short months until release of the fourth book in my BEAST series, entitled MARK OF THE B*E*A*S*T*, I have decided to post a FAQ of sorts, to help you sort out what's who and who's what with regards to this series. Some of you have been with me since the beginning, others have found their way here recently. And still others have read this series out of order.

So here's what's really going on.

B*E*A*S*T* stands for:


They are a malevolent secret agency, funded by...who knows? And specializing in splicing human DNA with that of animals, turning normal men and women into shifters. These shifters are able to shift at will, yet retain no memory of their lives before; before they were monsters. A few of these experiments have escaped B*E*A*S*T*'s compounds. These are their stories.



HERO: Noah Carpenter, a white tiger, the first to escape, but in his shifted state, causes a horrific car accident, and an innocent woman plunges down a mountainside. He saves her, but because she has now come in contact with him, BEAST will stop at nothing to take the woman as well.

HEROINE: Lanie Erickson, works at a bookstore but can't go back to her life. She's on the run with Noah without really knowing why, but instead of hating the man she's with, all she can dream about is being his mate.

On the run, out of luck, and out of time–can Noah save the woman he loves from the very agency that made him a monster?





HERO: Rogan Wolfe, a timber wolf, has no memory of his wife. He goes to Alaska to confront the life he once lived, but now, he's got to save the woman from the evil shifter who wants them both dead.

HEROINE: Marlie Silver, a veterinarian, she's mourned the loss of her husband for two years. When he shows up on her doorstep, it rocks her world. But he doesn't remember her, and now they've got to keep one step ahead of a man who can shift into a Kodiak, a man who's clearly going insane.

Running for their lives, overcome by desire–can Rogan protect the wife he doesn’t remember from the one man who wants them both dead?





HERO: Wade McAllister, a cougar, he's hellbent on revenge. He wants to take down the very bastard who made them all into freaks, but when he kidnaps the Senator's daughter, he doesn't count on falling for her.

HEROINE: Keira Covington, a Senator's daughter, she has no idea about the nefarious dealings of her father. But what Wade claims to be isn't humanly possible. Despite what he is, Keira can't help but swoon for the one man she should run far away from.

Out for blood, blindsided by passion–when Wade falls hard for Covington’s daughter, will he exact his revenge upon the man behind B*E*A*S*T*, or have mercy for her sake?





HERO: Mackenzie Bishop, a jaguar, has loved Robyn since the moment he laid eyes on her. But she was taken from him by BEAST, and he won't stop until she's back in his arms--whether she remembers him or not.

HEROINE: Robyn Groves is a shifter as well, a snowy owl, who doesn't remember a thing past two months ago as she's been mind-wiped by BEAST. She's saved by a man who's oddly familiar, one who gets her motor running like nobody's business. And he won't take no for an answer.

Desperate to find her, hell-bent on revenge. When Mac discovers the woman he loves has been mind-wiped by B*E*A*S*T*, he’ll stop at nothing to make sure they pay–with their lives.
