What am I working on now? #WIP

WIP

Okay, yes, I know I just posted one of these updates just the other day, but I have to decide what to do next! And my muse is a scatterbrained nutbar….

GUNPOINT (Sky Hunters) has been accepted by Evernight Publishing and is coming out in August 2016!

Now, I have to decide if I want to go back to my work-in-progress HER DANGEROUS MISTAKE (dragon shifters on Earth/secret/whoa), if I want to write the next Sky Hunters novel (Flight), or if my muse is interested in continuing the Stronghold series. *headdesk*

And there’s my newsletter thingie: it’s almost ready! You can SIGN UP HERE.

This is a newsletter that I will be sending out when I release new books, so typically, that means no more than once a month because I’m not one of those speedy writers, LOL. If I manage a book a month, well, that’s a freaking miracle. A MIRACLE. The newsletter will most likely be coming to your inbox every other month, or every third month.

 

Gunpoint Coming Soon!

The Sky Hunters are almost extinct…

After the Great War, the last of the falcon shifters scattered to survive.

Charlie Gutzman: ex-soldier, war chief, loner. Stats: blond hair, blue eyes, haunted by his past.

Warren Johnson: brother, orphan, a desperate man. Stats: dark brown hair, grey eyes, determined to survive everything life throws at him.

With the falcon shifters almost extinct, who is left to protect the weak? What darkness haunts the ones who do what it takes to survive?

GUNPOINT – releasing August 2016!

Soul-bruised and bitter, Charlie left the military for peaceful solitude. When he’s mugged at gunpoint, his isolation is shattered, because the guy with the weapon is his mate, and Charlie’s falcon insists on truth: the other half of his soul is a desperate man who doesn’t know he’s a shifter.

Warren has no money for rent, his sister’s ex beat her bloody, and he’s working double shifts to survive. He thought his life couldn’t get any worse, but then he mugs an ex-soldier who somehow turns the tables and offers him something impossible: hope.

Of course, nothing is that simple, and Charlie’s resistance to their bond sabotages their relationship before it really begins. Warren can handle hardship, but now his enemies are bigger than the bully next door, and he’s broken the darkest taboo of the Sky Hunter falcons. Only Charlie can save him, but can a damaged ex-soldier save himself, too?

Love Bytes Reviews loved CAGED KILLER!

“Caged Killer is all about two very different but fundamentally the same men who fall in love with other not in spite of their personal kinks but because of them! I’ve read a lot of Erin’s books and I must say this would have to be my favourite so far! Caged Killer isn’t a light and fluffy love story it’s a dark, twisted road to love so deep and abiding you will wish you’re the one on the receiving end!”

Knox is a killer hired to catch a thief: what happens when the thief catches the assassin instead, and chains him up? Nothing good. Nothing … sane.

Knox Calvin has spent his life repressing his sexuality. When Mick Lannon picks at his carefully constructed mental cage with a knife, he isn’t prepared for the fallout. Unfortunately, Knox isn’t the kind of man who can be bound for long, and Mick has his own demons to wrestle into submission. When Mick’s vendetta against his aunt’s killer spirals into all out war, Knox escapes to watch the carnage from a distance.

Mick likes his sex casual, his partners breathing, and doesn’t much care about anything else. Knox wasn’t interested in sex at all until Mick shackled him to a wall. What happens when one moment’s slip into darkness wakes up the monster in both men?

 

 

 

 

Work in Progress #amwriting

WIP

18 july 2016

It’s been a while since I posted one of these, mostly because my Real Life has been extremely uncooperative. I’m hoping things will get better soon, but even so, I’m still plugging along.😀

I’m working on a new shifter romance right now, tentatively titled GUNPOINT. The focus this time is on falcon shifters: who they are, why there are so few, and what happens when a desperate man holds a Sky Hunter falcon at gunpoint…

Coffee Time Romance loved Lone Wolf! #review

Coffee Time Romance loved LONE WOLF (Bad Oak Boys #4)!

“Lone Wolf is another high speed read from the incomparable Erin M. Leaf. I absolutely loved the fourth book in the Bad Oak Boys Series. Shane and Tim are hotter than hot and the love scenes in this book are positively combustible. The imagination of this author just has no problem going “out there” and I for one love it!”

Read an excerpt here.

Shane River is the last of the Bad Oak boys to feel the pull of his animal trying to get out. Problem is, once he shifts, the wolf wants nothing more than to run far away… alone. He’s an Alpha Lone Wolf, and that means he doesn’t need a pack.

Tim Cooper thought his father was human. He wasn’t. He thought his werewolf mother could survive anything. She didn’t. He thought he’d never be able to shift, but he thought wrong, and the truth is more disturbing than anything he could’ve imagined.

When Shane finds Tim’s mother dying in the desert, he vows to track down the vicious wolf-coyote hybrids responsible for the attack. He doesn’t expect her son Tim: a hybrid who has no idea what he is. He doesn’t expect Tim’s animal to call to his wolf. And he certainly doesn’t expect to mate with a creature ravaged by grief, but when instinct howls, the wolf must obey.

What are people saying about Lone Wolf?

Open Skye Book Reviews — 5 stars!

“I love this entire series and found this to be one of the best of the bunch. I thought there was a lot of emotional depth in this story and some tough considerations to be made concerning nature and nurture and vigilantism versus justice.”

Cocktails & Books — 4 stars!

“Shane and Tim are a couple worth rooting for.  They are both stubborn and powerful, and their road to a happily ever after isn’t smooth at all.”

Rainbow Book Reviews

“This is probably the most exciting and emotionally draining match-up in the whole series, and that’s saying a lot. But Shane and Tim are loners, they’re aggressive, they both like a little pain, and they’re falling in love.”

Love Bytes Reviews — 4.5 stars!

“I’ve enjoyed reading all four books in the Bad Oak Boys series because they’re not your run of the mill paranormal/werewolf m/m romance story’s.  . . . I have no hesitations in recommending this book and series!”

Story Excerpt:

Mick suddenly climbed on the bed, straddling Knox.

“Oh, Jesus Christ.” The words fell out of Knox’s mouth before he could stop them. Mick’s weight pressed right onto his dick, hard and painful and fucking perfect.

Mick licked his lips. “Well, well. Clearly you didn’t see that coming.” He shimmied down a bit more, slotting Knox’s erection right between his legs. The fucker looked like he was getting off on this shit.

“Fuck you.” Knox refused to let his hips buck up into the bastard’s heat. He was not gay. He wasn’t anything at all. He wanted to twist Lannon around and crack his spine into pieces, but he didn’t have the leverage. Not anymore. Not with the bastard on top of me, but the moment he moves…

“That can definitely be arranged.”

Knox shuddered.

Mick ground down, sliding his knife up Knox’s arm like a deadly snake. “I like blood.” He pressed in with the tip, just enough to sting. Blood trickled down Knox’s arm, circling the tattoo inked into the crook of his elbow.

“What the hell are you doing?” Knox couldn’t seem to stop running off at the mouth. “What did you dose me with?” There had to be some reason his body was so hot to trot right now, after years of indifference to pretty much anything or anyone. Drugs were a likely culprit.

“BDSM baby.” Mick laughed. “I chained you up. That’s it.” He leaned down and kissed the blood on Knox’s skin. “And you like it. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. They call you Fort Knox, you know. ‘He’s stone cold,’ they said, when I got the file on you.” He kissed the edge of Knox’s biceps. “Such lies.” His lips tickled against Knox’s skin. “You’re not cold at all, are you?”

“Whatever you pumped into my veins is doing this.” Knox bit back a groan. The scent of chocolate swept over him. “Fucking get off me.”

Mick licked up his arm, ignoring his pleas. “You are an unexpected treasure, Knox Calvin.”

Knox pressed his lips together so tightly the skin went numb. “You’re a fucking cocksucker.”

Mick sat back up again, pushing Knox’s erection flat. It hurt like hell. “Sometimes, yeah.” He licked his lips. “And obviously,” he punctuated his words with a roll of his hips. “So are you.”

Knox growled, beyond pissed and heading straight into rage. “Motherfucker.”

“Mmm. Look at you.” Mick’s eyes traveled along Knox’s torso. “You had no idea you could feel this way, did you?” The thief grinned. “Oh, I’m going to enjoy this.”

“Fuck you.” Knox felt like there wasn’t enough air going into his lungs. Fucking drugs.

“You’re repeating yourself.” Mick slid his knife into the opening of Knox’s t-shirt, and with a swift, sure jerk, split the fabric right down the middle. “Well, would you look at that?” He put his palm dead center on Knox’s chest. The heat from his hand burned. “You have a picture of a cage inked into your skin, Mr. Calvin.”

That’s it. He’s fucking close enough. Knox twisted, lifting up and using his legs to trap Mick. Using his chains as leverage, he tenses his shoulders and flipped them both over, pinning the bastard underneath his body. The mattress squeaked like an old whore, but he ignored it, trusting the steel bedframe to keep them off the floor. He shoved an arm over Mick throat, metal rattling.

“Where’s the key?” Knox shifted the chains, digging the shackle’s cuff into Mick’s shoulder. I should just kill him and get it over with, he thought, but he didn’t press harder. Something about this guy made him want to let the situation play out. What would the thief do next? And it’s not like I have anything else to do right now.

Mick narrowed his eyes. “I have a knife at your jugular, Knox.” He leaned the tip into Knox’s skin.

“I don’t fucking care.” Knox pressed harder. The sting at his neck felt like hardly anything.

Mick’s gaze went flat. “I really don’t want to kill you.”

“The feeling’s mutual. This is business.” Knox frowned. “Give me the key.”

The blade at his throat sank in unexpectedly. This time the pain wasn’t small. Wasn’t good. Warmth blossomed over his shoulder, wet and strange. Knox blinked, trying to think, and then Mick flipped them back over. He threw his blade to the side and slapped a hand over Knox’s throat. “You stupid fuck.”

Vaguely, Knox realized that his hard-on had finally subsided.
