Today I begin work on a new novel!!! Here’s the very beginning (rough draft):
Seth changed for the first time when he was ten years old. One minute he was asleep, dreaming of running through the woods out back, and the next he was awake, heart pounding. The covers were heavy and hot and he struggled to breath, panic working its way up his spine. It wasn’t until he was able to wriggle his way out that he realized everything was different. His room smelled … odd. He could see clear as day even though the only light was from the crescent moon stamped on the sky outside the window like an omen. He tried to sit up, but his body didn’t work that way anymore. He tried to call out, hoping his mom or dad or someone would hear, but the sound that came from his mouth wasn’t human. He fell to the floor, body twisting, and landed on all fours. His room smelled like dust and fear.
Yup. It’s a shapechanger novel. I’m so excited!
Coming Soon! November 13, 2012

When Belinda startles awake in the middle of the night, she doesn’t expect to find two gorgeous men at her bedside. Max and Levi, her best friends since childhood, suddenly want more than friendship from her. Belinda has always loved them desperately, but she worries sex could ruin everything. Do Max and Levi want her love, or just her body? Dare she hope their friendship is strong enough to survive the heat?

When a terrible enemy suddenly attacks their planet, how will they protect those they love without losing each other? Together they survive an assassination attempt, invasion, and capture, but they both know that their duty may eventually tear them apart.
How can Ximena give her life for her people when she knows that Zefirino will die trying to save her? Who does she put first: her planet, or the lover she isn’t even supposed to have?

(I’m a little excited, can you tell?)
There is nothing I like more than a whole lot of unresolved sexual tension (UST) in the first half of a romance novel. It’s also awesome in tv shows (hello, Castle anyone?), movies (Superman!), oh, and real life. Drawing out the tension makes the climax of the novel, scene, and relationship soooo much better.
With that in mind, how about a teaser from my WIP?
We shouldn’t do this, she thought, but then his lips were on hers once more and she couldn’t speak, let alone control her gasp. He was warm and so strong and she loved him, though she would never tell him so. She wanted to unlace his shirt and push it away. She wanted to take off her own clothing and roll her skin against his until neither of them knew where one body began and the other ended. Instead, she settled for merely kissing him back, trying to put all that she wished she could have into it. He grinned against her mouth and she slid her hands into his hair, tugging.
“We cannot do this,” she murmured. His emotions wafted over her, strong and hot. He loved her, yes, but he also understood the difficulty of their positions. She had to put a stop to this.
“We are not doing anything wrong,” he said, dipping down again.
Denial. She opened her mouth, about to protest. He swallowed her words and kissed her deeper, the heat from his body making her dizzy. His mind emanated love, desire, love, desire into hers and she shuddered. This was forbidden. Bodyguards did not love their queens. Queens did not favor one of her people above another. That was how they kept their world safe.
