Halfway Through NaNoWriMo...How's It Going?

11:00 AM 1 Comments
Okay, it's day 15 of November's annual National Novel Writing Challenge, and like more than 100,000 other authors worldwide, I've been frantically tapping keys in hopes of making the goal.

If you've never heard of this challenge, the goal is to write a 50,000-word novel in thirty days during the month of November. The prize? A handsome web graphic and printable certificate...and the feeling of a job well done. And, quite possibly, a piece of fiction you can then go on to polish and see reach publication.

So, how's it going for old Jade here? As of this writing, I have crossed the 40k mark, putting me a bit ahead of the game for now, but anything can happen. What am I writing? Another title in my IMMORTAL PARADISE series, called IMMORTAL HEAT. In this story, Lexie goes to the island featured in THEIR SECRET PARADISE to find the man of her dreams--literally. Convinced that the hunk who has possessed her dreams for nearly a year will be waiting at the resort, Lexie instead meets two intriguing, disturbingly sensual gods: Love and Lust. They reveal that she has been chosen to become the mate of a powerful god, Grayel, and that the only way for her to join him outside of dreams is to undergo an erotic ritual that will transform her...into a goddess.

If you're busy typing up your NaNoWriMo word count, congratulations to you! If you haven't signed up yet, why not give it a try? You don't need to be an author, and it isn't too late! All you need is the desire to write a story, and off you go.

For more info, visit You still have half the month left to get rockin, and there are people who have already crossed the 50k goal in two weeks. So can you! Even if you don't, just think that two weeks from now, you could be well on your way to a novel.

Happy writing!

New Release--Chat Party!!

9:11 AM 0 Comments
A 4-flame sensual fantasy, coming November 7 from Eternal Press
Where the gods Love and Lust reside, no one will leave untouched

Come to a live chat SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7 from 7-11 pm EST, where I will be joining other EP authors for excerpts, fun, and giveaways! I will be giving away a fun reader survival kit, with a few little goodies I selected to pull out during one of those need-to-relax moments!


Parapsychology graduate Gina Munson knows better than to fall victim to the special “charms” at her uncle's resort, where the siren call of a glittering sea couples with the energy of supernatural eroticism to stir guests’ most sensual fantasies. Then a muscled building contractor stumbles across her private sunbathing nook and heats up Gina’s summer Bahamas paradise. For where the gods Love and Lust reside, none will leave untouched.


Their lips met before David realized he'd reached for her, and the room around them imploded until there was no reality left outside the utter perfection of their joining. He felt her stiffen for a couple of heart-pounding beats, then melt against him. Her hair smelled off tropical secrets he sought to unleash by running his fingers through the silken tresses as he devoured her. The moan he elicited when his tongue found hers drove his already hard cock to near immolation. Gods, she tasted good—better than he'd remembered.

Gina had been a cool flame during their times together, reserved and aloof but with glimpses of burning desire hidden within her depths. Now he saw the door to her need fling wide open, revealing more than a stoked furnace of arousal. She was a virtual goddess of passion. He whispered her name against her lips as her hands went exploring, running down the breadth of his shoulders and along his back to just above his ass. She slid those delicious hands around to stroke the sides of his hips, her bold and dangerous proximity to the bulging ache against his fly shooting a fierce need through him. He was overcome by a powerful yearning to possess this woman, in a way no other male ever had—or would again. The electric wake left from her touch made him shiver and sent a groan rumbling up from deep within his core.

Her tongue stroked and teased his mouth until he had to restrain himself from giving over to animalistic groans, and he released her hair to embark on an expedition of his own. As his caress slid along her upper arms he allowed lazy thumbs to graze the rounded perfection of full breasts. Her gasp was immediate, a tortured ecstasy that tightened his abdomen and brought the hips her hands rested on forward to press against her. His intoxication with this woman was potent and complete, and as his hands went to her breasts, he heard the thought incurable.

I'm on the Bestseller List!!

Rated SCORCHING from Siren-Bookstrand's Menage Amour Line

I was absolutely shocked when I set up a Google Alert for KATA SUTRA and an alert popped up--right from the bestseller page of my publisher, Siren-Bookstrand!

KATA SUTRA is currently #6, and I couldn't be more pleased. Here's a teaser for you:


Shaking herself loose from the grip of shock, Desiree launched herself into the room and inserted herself between the two men before either could make another move.

“Stop,” she said, taking on Evan's usual commanding tone. “Stop it, both of you.” Adrenaline fed her in gasps that matched the ragged breathing of the two winded opponents.

“Desiree.” Mak shook sweaty locks from widened eyes. “You're still here.”

She knelt between them, placing a hand on both their superheated, hardened chests to keep them in place. “What the hell is going on? First you're peeing over each other to see who can squirt a stream of sparring instructions the highest—all of which failed, in case you hadn't noticed. Now you're going Bruce Lee on each other to see who gets a shot at me?”

The two flicked accusing glances at the other, but other than forceful whooshes of breath, they kept silent. “Or is pretending to fight over a female standard practice in Upper Belt Sparring?”

Mak pulled his torso upward, but she pushed him back. “Uh-uh. Not until I get an answer.”

He complied with a sigh and folded his arms behind his head. “How about it, Desiree? I've seen the way you look at me. I felt a connection. Tell our teacher here that you and I have a date with Tiger Balm.”

Evan ignored her attempt to hold him on his back and pushed up to lean on one hand while shoving back a sheen of his dampened blond waves with the other. “And when you're letting him down easy, don't forget the part where you almost kissed me after the last class.”

Her eyes flew wide. “I almost kissed you?

“Don't deny it.” His voice, still breathless from the match, dropped to a low growl that shuddered through her. “Your nipples were so hard I thought they'd rip right through your top.” His eyes dipped. “Like they are right now.”

The parts in question tightened even harder. What the hell did he expect? She had her hands on two muscled, panting, gorgeous men. Men who wanted her.

“And I say it's because of our pre-class warm up.”

“Enough!” She tossed her head back, shaking hair from her face and trying to keep composure. “I'm not a wishbone, guys. You can't tear me in two and get what you want.”

The whole thing was unbelievable. What the hell should she do? Evan, godlike and powerful, yet intimidating. Mak, personable and charming, yet with a hint of danger of his own. She hadn't had a date in months, sex in even longer. Now two of the hottest guys she ever imagined inside of her were fighting over her like snarling wolves. Just like a dream—a truly wild, out-of-this-world fantasy. Sculpted bodies all hers for the taking. She merely had to choose which one.

A rush of pleasure flooded her abdomen through the thought of being so desired, along with the tingling contact of her palms against two hot, male bodies. How could she pick between them?

The answer snapped into place against this thought. Something she'd never dreamed, let alone considered possible outside a fairly wild fantasy life. Did she dare?

She fought to keep her voice calm. “You've shared a lot of things in this dojo. You share a passion for karate. A voice here among the students. A friendship. A friendship I'd like to share.” She skimmed her hands over both their chests until she grazed their nipples. “With both of you.”

Before the logical side of her brain could convince the rest of her to chicken out, she reached down to peel her shirt up over her head, her hair spilling back out in long strands around full, bare breasts.
