Description of book:  
Lacy Taylor didn't exactly have a fairytale childhood.  After being abandoned by both her parents, she had to learn to take care of herself at a young age.  Now an independent woman, Lacy finds herself back in Trouble, Wyoming.  Though she isn't please to be back in the town where her memories were less than pleasant, Lacy decides to make the best of her situation.  Unfortunately her father has recently been released from jail and the county is about to take her house.  What's a girl to do?

Chase McDermott hadn't thought about Lacy Taylor in a long time.  To him she was nothing more than the sad little girl who lived across town and followed his brother around like a lost puppy.  Years later, she's in a bit of a jam and turns to Chase for help.  He goes against his sensibility and offers her a job at his restaurant.  Then money comes up short and things start to go missing.  The last thing Chase wants to do is think Lacy might be stealing.  With a thief among his midst and a woman who turns him on like she never had before, Chase is in a bit of a dilemma.

Lacy has her own problems with the appearance of a half-sister, a major tax problem and a sudden windfall she as absolutely no clue what to do with.  Chase is with her every step of the way, offering his support - and more.  Along the way he has to figure out which one of his employees is stealing before they bleed him dry!

Will the two of them ever get things figured out? Or will they become too distracted with their desire for each other?



 
About the Author:
I was born in Houston, Tx. and am the oldest of two sisters. After moving around umpteen times, I finally settled in northern California, where I lived most my life, but am finally back home now in Texas. I live in the north Ft. Worth area with my husband, 6 year old daughter and 2 year old son.


I absolutely love to read! With the exception of my family, reading is my one passion I would never be able to give up. I've spent countless hours researching some of my favorite authors on Amazon looking for that perfect book to read next. Once I find it, I cherish every page until I've reached the end.


Second to my passion for reading is writing. One day, while going about my daily routine of working, chores, and other domesticated stuff, I sat down at my computer and started typing. I typed until every single word, character and setting was out of my head and on the computer screen. Seven years later, I've finally published my first book, and I could not be happier what my chosen profession.


This passion of mine was a collaborative effort of some of my favorite authors, including, but not limited to, Linda Howard, Cindy Gerard, Rachel Gibson, Susan Mallery, Lori Foster... I could go on and on but I don't want this biography to stretch from now until the end of time

About the Author:
Since I was just 12 years old, I have known that a writer is all I have ever wanted to be.  

I was born in 1968 and raised in England. These days I’m a globe-trotting ex-pat Brit. I love books, movies, music, yoga, German Shepherd dogs and wolves. I enjoy meeting other authors; discussing the writing process and helping other writers get their own projects off the ground. 

I enjoy cooking, black coffee, red wine, and Guinness with a good meal, and I have a devilish, sometimes zany, sense of humor. I can’t resist a practical joke so be warned: if you are ever walking through a door and a bucket of water tips over you … it was most likely me that put it there. 

My novels are mainly revenge-thrillers, some with a supernatural twist.  

I have several books planned for the future.  
No rest for the wicked.

Adult Paranormal Romance

Description of book:  
Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her. 


She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit.

When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at her as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista?

Join Kristin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the rear truth about herself.

For our blog, we decided to let our readers determine the content by asking questions.
Q: Do you guys have a pre-planned storyline for each of the character pair ups or do you let them run the show and follow them down the proverbial rabbit's hole to see what kind of roller-coaster ride they take you on?
Vaughn: I think it’s a little of both. Sometimes we have an idea right out the gate of who we want together, and how their story is going to play out. Other times, the characters lead us into surprising territory. That’s the great thing about fiction, you can never quite tell what’s going to happen.
Bunni: I totally agree with Vaughn here, and I have to add I just love it when they surprise us!
Q: How do you guys come up with the stories and keep them all flowing so well? I love the imagination you have.
Vaughn: I think that ties in partly to the previous question. A lot of times, its character led. It’s kind of a schizophrenic feeling, the way that they can drive ideas and motivations. The other part, in my opinion, is the fact that the imagination is like an all-you-can-eat buffet for the mind. If you want something, you can always live that vicariously through your fiction. Writing opens up the opportunity to experience everything you’ve ever dreamed up.
Bunni: Also, we tend to live in each other’s headspace a lot, which helps a great deal when you’re spinning lives and building worlds.
Q: What advice would you give young ladies today?

Vaughn: I’m going to paraphrase a quote that Bunni told me once. Figure out what your dream is and do something every day to make it happen. It may be hard, grueling, repetitive work, but it’s worth it to live your life how you want to live it.

Bunni: Masturbate well and often, and invest in high quality vibrators. 

For the following two questions, we will assign each one to one of our released couples, as to answer each of them for all the characters would get a bit lengthy.
Q: What are Davian and Starr’s concepts about war and peace? 

Davian would say that war is a necessary evil, and that the best way to handle such nasty business is to do just that – make it a business. If people are going to be dying, other people should be making money off of it.

Starr was raised as a flower child, and as such was raised with Peace and Love being paramount. She’s a fairly peaceful soul, but does understand it sometimes takes war to create and maintain that peace. 

Q: What do Dresdin and Everett think is critical in making a kingdom safe?

Dresdin is well-versed in the idea that safety means a close eye on the enemy, and little mercy for those who cross the line.

Everett believes in a quiet and strong leadership. He carries a big stick, true, but he doesn’t want the enemy to know he has it. Everett rules with a silken glove hiding an iron fist.
If the Aetherwood characters could get rid of any one person - by sending them away, banishing them, packing them off for a looong holiday, or just plain booting them out, who would it be?

GG. You, the readers, don’t know who that is yet, but you just wait. 

Q:What’s coming up for Lion and Mermaid?

Vaughn: One of my favorite series will be out August 26th. It includes Everett’s children, who are some of the most vivid, unique characters to grace my imagination. 

Bunni: And mermaids! Those come soon as well- but I have to agree with Vaughn, Everett’s children are pretty darn awesome. Cannot wait to share them with everyone!
