Seems like it’s been a long time (or maybe never?) since I talked about the books I’ve enjoyed reading. Recently, I’ve been stocking up on Evernight stories, maybe because the covers are so yummy. I mean, just LOOK at these:

Alex Roman controls a business empire, but he can’t control his personal life. Just when he thought he and his boyfriend, Jesse, could settle down and enjoy their life together, their past comes back to haunt them once again. They never discovered who killed Alex’s grandfather and Jesse’s father, and neither man would’ve wanted to know the truth if it meant tearing them apart, but that’s what happens.

When a crazy gunman targets Jesse for the sins of his father, he reluctantly decides he must leave the love of his life in order to keep him safe. Little does he know that his decision to protect Alex may ultimately be his undoing. Alex tracks him down and the gunman follows. A deadly confrontation leaves one man down, and their relationship fractured.

Will their love survive the ultimate test?

Sienna knows she’s different, knows she’s missing some essential part of her soul, and she’s okay with that until she encounters Jasper. Unfortunately, meeting the love of her life for the first time while he’s standing over her wounded best friend in the middle of the woods isn’t the most auspicious beginning.

Jasper is dangerous. Alluring. Everything she should fear, especially when she discovers he’s out for revenge against the vampire who murdered his brother. Her mother warned Sienna to stay far away from the monsters, but how can she let Jasper face them on his own?

Revenant, vampire, slave—darkness is coming for them. Will evil consume Jasper and Sienna, or will love prevail?

Isabelle’s best friend is getting married and guess who’s the maid-of-honor?

Going to the wedding alone isn’t an option, so when Isabelle’s brother sends his buddy to her rescue, she can hardly believe who it is: rocker Marvin Clementine! He shows up at her door incognito, but nothing can hide the sexy smile that melts her spine.

At the wedding, he is the perfect gentleman right up until Isabelle’s ex-boyfriend attacks him. When Marvin punches him in the nose, taking him down with one swing, what can Isabelle do except take Mr. Rockstar home and kiss his wounds until he’s better?

Of course, one night of bliss isn’t enough for her to overcome her fears. Marvin’s celebrity lifestyle freaks her out, and it would be crazy to move to L.A., right? Especially for someone as shy as Isabelle. Unfortunately, she’s pretty sure Marvin is her one true love…


Work in Progress


13 february 2015

I just finished the sequel to The Billionaire’s Bodyguard and The Blizzard and I’m calling it Better Together. It’s a blend of humor and suspense and a crazy bad guy. I hope you like it!

Next up? I’m going to be working on a new novella, standalone. This one involves a desert planet, an heir to an empire, and a rebel prince. I can’t wait to get started!


Last, but not least, I have two more books to write for the Stronghold series, Day and Dawn. I am so looking forward to writing Isaac’s story! He’s the cocky adventurer of the four brothers.

When you’re a thief and you’re dating two cops, life can be tricky—especially when you stumble across your boys in the middle of a heist. When you’re a cop and you’re dating a sexy thief, life isn’t just weird. It’s dangerous.

Blue is falling for her two new boyfriends, but they’re having trouble finding time to be together. Being a thief is crazy. And a cop’s work is never done. When you don’t have time to date, you steal any kind of alone time that you can. So what if Liam and Matt are tied up in the middle of a murder investigation?

Matt and Liam never expected to find themselves bound together in a basement. When Blue stumbles over them, she offers them something much more risky than freedom: herself. Because she’s not a saint. She’s a very, very naughty thief, and when her boys neglect her, they must pay her price if they want to win her heart.

Be warned: menage sex (MMF), anal sex, bondage

Two sexy cops. A thief. A heist gone wrong…


Read the whole story, 40,000 words, for only THREE BUCKS!

Blue: Feisty yet vulnerable, the thief thinks she’s perfectly fine facing the world alone, and then she meets Liam and Matt. Thieves and cops mix like oil and water, but she’s never been one for following the rules.

Liam: He’s sworn off women because he’s a cop and he’s been hurt before, but when he meets Blue, he may have to rethink his strategy.

Matt: He can’t find a woman he likes more than his partner, so he’s stopped looking, but when Blue shows up in the middle of a dangerous shootout, what’s a good cop supposed to do?

Menage (mmf) has never been so hot!

What are people saying about the Blue’s Boys series?

ThiefNot Now…Mommy’s Reading – 4 stars!

“This read was short, sexy and sinfully satisfying! … Matt and Liam perfectly compliment each other and our heroine by offering one lover who is gentle and thoughtful and the other who is dangerously sexy.”

CopsCocktails and Books – 4 stars!

“Blue, Matt, and Liam are back, and they’ve gotten themselves into another little “situation”.  Once again, there is humor, action, witty banter, and SEX!! These three are so hot!  They smolder.  They radiate nuclear energy.  The sun is jealous of their heat.”

BelovedSizzling Hot Books – 4 stars!

“Ms. Leaf leads us merrily through it all with great good humor and better sex (did I say the sex was hot?). We adore Matt and Liam, and Blue, of course – in the midst of a hail of bullets, they all profess their undying love…”
