First Kiss: The Nullifier by Erin M. Leaf

First kisses are my favorite, and this one from THE NULLIFIER was particularly fun to write. 😀 Enjoy!

Contract killer Felix Zamaro isn’t looking for love—at his age, all he wants to do is retire. When he interrupts a robbery-in-progress, he stumbles into a mess: Nick Banner is in town to help his sister kick her loser boyfriend to the curb.

Nick never thought he’d meet a hot-as-hell assassin in the middle of a random coffee run, but watching Felix take down a couple of thieves in a crappy gas station has him questioning his rule against playing with straight guys.

When Felix’s next mark turns out to be none other…

I have just finished writing SOULMATE, the first book of a brand new gay paranormal series. I’ve always loved the idea that there is someone out there who is fated to be your one and only—the other half of your soul. Here’s my very rough and unedited blurb:

Guy Keaton doesn’t want a hookup or a soulmate or anything in between. When he lost his wife to cancer, he knew he’d be alone for the rest of his life. He has a grown son, and his woodshop, and in a world where those born with powerful gifts are few and far between, that’s all that really matters.

Theo Fraser’s empathic gift is rare and strong. He isn’t looking for love, but when he meets Guy, everything changes, because he knows that when you find your soulmate, you hold on tight and don’t let go. The only problem is that Guy thinks he’s straight, and Theo doesn’t know if he can convince a man already set in his ways to change his mind.

Will Guy be able to give up his grief and accept Theo’s love? And what happens when a terrible betrayal forces them to fight to keep each other alive?

I’ve begun writing the second book in the series, titled SEER. I love my main hero. I haven’t met the other guy yet, but I’m sure he’ll be delicious.

In other news, I’ve started work on a new menage story. No idea yet how long it will be, but it has wolf shifters! My working title is QUEEN BITCH, which I know is kind of inappropriate, but I really sort of love it. 😀 And yes, this means I’m working on two stories at once. *headdesk*

I can’t believe I haven’t updated my Work-In-Progress page since July. Bad writer. No cookie for me.

The Nullifier, the first book of my brand new series is releasing December 1, 2017! Yay! You know what that means, right? Yup. I’m hard at work on book two of The Criminals: The Fixer. We first met Zero in The Nullifier, where his life took an unexpected dive into violence. Now, Zero’s been a fixer for a long time, and he’s no stranger to making hard choices, but having someone put a hole in his lung tends to make him very, very cranky. Revenge for this trauma is on the top of his list, but when love comes knocking on his door, what is a man supposed to do? Ignore it? Nope. Zero is a guy with many talents. He can multi-task. Spilling blood has never been so romantic…

DAWN, Stronghold 3, is releasing June 9, 2017!

Right now I’m working on DAY, book four of the Stronghold series.

After that…. who knows? Any suggestions? Is there any trope in particular you’d like to see me write? Gay romance? MF romance? Menage?

Tropes:

gay for you
Rubenesque
best friends to lovers
best friend’s sister/brother/child
May/Dec
Boss/PA (including billionaire boss)
bodyguard
straight to gay (soulmate is unexpectedly male)
tough guy (cop, military, jock.)/nerd-geek
mannies: single dad falls for male nanny
forced proximity/trapped together

GUNPOINT (Sky Hunters) is out!

Right now I’m working on HER DANGEROUS MISTAKE (dragon shifters on Earth/secret/whoa). This story has become a bit longer and more complicated than I intended, but that’s how it goes sometimes. Writing is like dancing with an invisible partner: sometimes you know where you’re headed, and sometimes you don’t.

I have plans to continue the Sky Hunters series. The next novel is tentatively titled FLIGHT, and will feature two new heroes. I’m also going to continue the Stronghold series, as that story holds a special place in my heart. Next up is DAWN, Isaac’s story. I love sci-fi. 🙂

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…
