Rabbits & Newsletter

Reminder: The first newsletter of 2014 will go out in approx 15 hours, with the short story, "Zoe's Workshop". For details about how to join the newsletter list, click here.


Also, I have to share a funny conversation I had with Ashwini yesterday.

A: So I was driving along a quiet side street (in the city) the other day, when a rabbit hopped in front of my car.

N: *stares* What?

A: A fluffy bunny rabbit. And there was a woman on the sidewalk who threw up her hands and made an actual eeep! sound. *demonstrates high-pitched eeping sound*

N: Seriously?

A: Yes, I think she thought I was going to run over the rabbit.

N: Are you sure you weren't hallucinating?

A: No, it was an actual rabbit. A brown rabbit.

N: Did the rabbit run away?

A: No, I stopped the car and it hopped back to the sidewalk with the lady.

N: The lady who went eep!

A: Yeah, it must've been her pet.

So there you go. Watch out for people walking their pet rabbits along city streets. (00)

Guild Hunter #7 & Psy-Changeling Short Story

First some writing news: I now have a first draft of Guild Hunter #7. Yay! Nobody get too excited though. My first drafts are extremely rough - I write my way into the story. Now, I have to put all the pieces together. 


If you missed it in the newsletter, the Psy-Changeling short story "Clean and Dirty" is now up on the website. Enjoy! 

Also, the Feb 25th newsletter will include a free Guild Hunter short story. To join the newsletter list, just fill in the form on the front page of the website and click the confirm link in your email. Any problems, email Ashwini (naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom).

Guild Hunter #7

I posted some information about the next Guild Hunter book on Facebook and thought I'd share it here as well. :-)

The book will feature Ash and Janvier from "Angels' Pawn" as main characters, but it will also feature Elena and Raphael (after the events in "Archangel's Legion", they have a lot to deal with!).

This is a tightly connected world and group of characters, so we're also going to see most of the usual suspects, including the hunters and many of the Seven (Naasir, too ;-)).

Okay, that's what I have for you so far. More info to come a bit closer to the release - which, by the way, is currently scheduled for the end of October. That's a tentative date, so it could move. Specific date to come later in the year.

Shield of Winter & Newsletter Reminder

There was a man standing on the path between the snow-kissed trees. No, not a man. A soldier. Over six feet tall with broad shoulders, his posture was unyielding, his stillness absolute, his eyes a chill gray, and his hair black.

- from Shield of Winter (June Psy-Changeling release)


A quick reminder that the first 2014 newsletter will go out toward the end of February, complete with a free short story (there was no January newsletter). If you aren't yet a member, just fill in the form on the top right of my website's front page and then click on the confirm link you get in your email - you'll then automatically get a welcome newsletter with two shorts "Poker Night" and "Knives and Sheaths".

If you don't get the link in your email, contact Ashwini and she'll see what's up (naliniDOTassistantATgmailDOTcom). Or if you somehow missed out on the two shorts in the Welcome newsletter despite being a member of the newsletter already, let Ashwini know and she'll make sure you get a copy. :-)

Harlequin Reissue: Wide Awake

Hi everyone! I've had some queries about WIDE AWAKE (see cover to the right).

This is a reissue of three of my Silhouette Desire novels. I wrote these at the start of my career, and while I will always love them (I still reread the books every so often :-)), my writing style has changed and developed since then, so keep that in mind if you decide to pick up this collection.

I've got details of the stories below, along with links to excerpts. If you do decide to dive in, I hope you enjoy!

Also, this is being published by Harlequin Australia, so I'm not sure if you'll be able to access it worldwide - leave a comment if you can and where you bought it, so other readers can share the info. Thank you!

Awaken to Pleasure

Painful experience screamed that Taylor Reid should run far and fast from Jackson Santorini. But keeping custody of her brother meant becoming her former boss's bride. And giving Jackson a baby.

Despite his powerful size and presence, Jackson had been hurt before. Yet he'd protected her at a personal cost, respecting her virginal apprehension. Suddenly, for Jackson's sake, Taylor wanted to replace pain with pleasure. Only, she'd never imagined what sensations — and secrets — she would awaken...

Awaken The Senses

Charlotte Ashton had never belonged anywhere — until she met worldly Alexandre Dupree. The winemaker was consulting at her family's vineyard, and soon shy Charlotte had fallen completely under his spell. He seemed to know all her secret desires, all her dreams — as if he'd been put on earth just for her pleasure.

Alexandre seduced Charlotte in all the ways she had fantasised about. He'd read her secret journal and discovered the real Charlotte — the sensual lover, the generous woman, the vulnerable virgin. Was his crime so unforgivable when all he'd wanted was her love? Yet now to maintain her trust, he would have to continue to lie...

Craving Beauty

Marc was dangerous to her in the way that only a strong, sexy male could be to a woman. Even knowing that, Hira had agreed to marry him. Her mother had worried that he was scarred, but the lines on his face did nothing to lessen his raw masculine appeal. If anything, they gave him an even more dangerous male air, enticing the feminine core of her to thoughts that shocked her.

What did a man's face matter anyway? She had no use for handsome men. But for a man with a heart? For such a man, she might risk everything...
