Alter Egos:
IF I EVER releases!!!

If you pre-ordered from Riptide, it’s available now!

Also, Amazon has a pre-order link up as of today as well (altho the paperback is live) and the ebook won’t go live until sometime tomorrow).  I’ll add Barnes & Noble and Kobo as those links populate over the next few days.

 

IF I EVER: Hell or HighWater 4

Coming January 21, 2019

Some ghosts refuse to stay buried . . .

Prophet and Tom have been through the ringer more times than they can count, both as partners in the field and in life. Yet despite it all, they’ve built something great together. But now they need to protect it again: Prophet’s old nemesis, John Morse, is back and threatening everything he loves.

Prophet is driven enough to take John down alone, and with a chance to do exactly that on the table, he runs with it, risking himself in the process. But trusting Tom to help him is so much more than mission critical.

It’s the final stand, and with Tom and his team behind him, Prophet’s in for the fight of his life. Then a figure from his past goes missing, and the consequence of an old mission rears its head. As complications and destruction mount all around them, getting out alive becomes the most important mission of their lives.

Can you suggest a reading order for your books?

Proper reading order is a request I get a lot, so I figured it would be easier to link to it rather than retyping it every time I get asked. And since so many of you ask, I realized that the more books I have, the more complicated this gets. So I’m going to give you two different scenarios below, depending on where you’ve already started.

Option 1:

In the past, I’ve suggested that people read my books in the order I wrote them. This makes the most sense, because as I went along, I mention other characters in different books and then you can see the start of different characters. As an avid reader myself, I love it when I can spot a character from an author’s world in another one of their worlds. So if you like this option, you’ll want to start with:

The Men of Honor Series (books 1 – 6 are listed in order below & in Book 5, you’ll see Prophet’s name)

Men of Honor, Book 1

Men of Honor, Book 2

Men of Honor, Book 3

Men of Honor, Book 4

Men of Honor, Book 5

Men of Honor, Book 6

No Boundaries (It’s a spin-off of Men of Honor & it has a new couple PLUS the trio from Bound By Law)

Free Falling (It’s an EE book with Blue & Mick and you get a chance to meet Prophet)

Free Falling

Free Falling, Book 1

No Boundaries

Phoenix Inc, Book 1

Catch A Ghost (Hell or Highwater Book 1)

Long Time Gone (Hell or Highwater Book 2)

Dirty Deeds (Dirty Deeds Book 1) (I know it’s technically its own series but trust me, this works)

Daylight Again ((Hell or Highwater Book 3) This runs along the same exact timeline as Dirty Deeds)

Not Fade Away (Hell or Highwater novella aka Book 3.5)

If I Ever (pub date coming soon!) (Hell or Highwater Book 4)

Catch A Ghost

Hell or High Water, Book 1

Long Time Gone

Hell or High Water, Book 2

Dirty Deeds

Dirty Deeds, Book 1

Daylight Again

Hell or High Water, Book 3

Not Fade Away

Hell or High Water, Book 3.5

Hell or High Water, Book 4

(from this point, you’d need to read Dirty Lies & Dirty Love if they’re written when you’re reading this. As of October 2018, they are being written)

From here, there are standalone series / books that really can be read at any time:

The Havoc MC series (Running Wild, Running Blind & the forthcoming Running on Empty) You’ll see some of the same characters but each book is truly stand alone

Running Wild

Havoc MC, Book 1

Running Blind

Havoc MC, Book 2

The Inked series (Hold the Line & Thirds) – total standalone books

Hold the Line

Inked, Book 1

Thirds

Inked, Book 2

Rule of Thirds – total standalone and also part of the Mirror Series (I wrote this as Stephanie Tyler, & the other 2 books in the series are m/f books in case you’re interested in those too!)

Rule Of Thirds

Mirror Series, Book 2

No Easy Way is a novella that’s part of a Riptide Anthology & Part of the BlueWater Bay series.

Temperance is book 4 in a series called Defiance. The first 3 books are m/f. I wouldn’t exactly call this book standalone but wanted to include it because it is m/m. I’ve described the series as Sons of Anarchy meets the apocalypse – and it’s a New Adult series. You can order the full series here 🙂

Defiance, Book 4

* * * *

Option 2:

Now, I told you I’d give you an alternate way to read. I have readers who adore the Men of Honor series and I have readers who adore the Hell or Highwater series (and I have readers who adore both)…but most readers have a more favorite series.

Men of Honor has its own definite feel. They’re angsty and they’re very hot. There’s probably a touch of suspense in each of them but the main focus is the relationship between the men.

Hell or Highwater (and EE & DD as well) have a very action-adventure, milrom suspense feel. Although they’re hot in their own right, they’re much more action-packed.

It’s very hard to explain the differences between the two–my writing voice is the same but each series has its own feel. Also, the Men of Honor series came first, so I improve with every book I write. But Hell or Highwater is definitely more…complicated.

And again, those standalones listed above can be read anytime, in any order.

I hope this helps!!!

The case of the broken lock…

aka, the 5 stages of grief, lock-pick style…

Yesterday:

8 Year Old Boy Child (aka Mr. Innocent in the picture) Mom, the bathroom’s locked but the key’s not working! 

Me:  Let me try.  *tries but key doesn’t go in.  Tries to shove key in*  Did you stick anything in here besides the key?

8YO: No. (aka Denial)

Me: We’ll have to wait for dad.  *goes back over to work & notices the missing paperclip that was holding papers together* Are you sure you didn’t put anything in the lock?  Like a paperclip?

8YO: Nope.

Me:  Where’s the paperclip? *repeat this line of questioning for 1/2 hour, until my threats of searching the garbage to find paperclip with broken piece leads to next claim that paperclip supposedly broke *not* inside the lock, then eventually leads to…*

8YO: You’re going to be mad.

*insert yelling here* (aka Anger)

8YO:  Okay, I was watching this YouTube video on hacking and they were showing how to open a lock with a paperclip. *pauses and asks with straight, cute face* Does this mean I can’t get that toy you have hidden in the box upstairs? (aka Bargaining Stage)

Me:  In the box you weren’t supposed to look in? So no.  Definitely not.

8YO: I’m so mad at myself!   (aka Depression)

Me: *calls locksmith*

Locksmith:  You should never have a doorknob on a bathroom door that requires a key.

Me:  *in surprisingly controlled voice*  You installed it.

Today:

Locksmith:  I found the piece of paperclip inside the lock.  Your son actually did a good job – he just didn’t have the right tool.  *shows the right tool*

Me to Zoo:  I guess we should buy him one and give him a doorknob to practice on. (aka Acceptance)

RUNNING BLIND Release Day!!!

It’s Bram & Sweet’s book release day!!!  RUNNING BLIND is available everywhere you buy your ebooks and print books (and I’ll be populating the order links on the book page as the book goes live everywhere).  You can read Chapter One here 🙂

An ATF agent who lives for danger finds what he craves from an outlaw biker.

It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle club member to simply walk away—and no one knows that better than undercover agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown—yet—but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low and heal.

But when his younger brother’s disappearance throws a wrench into his plan, Bram ends up in Shades Run, a town ruled by the notorious Havoc MC. In less than twenty-four hours, Bram finds himself at the mercy of Sweet, Havoc’s president, as he throws himself into the undercover role of a lifetime: himself. A man who’s never belonged anywhere, and who will do anything to protect his younger brother.

When finding Linc seems impossible, Bram is torn between Sweet, Linc, and revealing his true identities . . . and there appears to be no way out. Once again, he risks it all trying to save it all. Only this time he’s got no backup to save him if he falls.

 

In other news, if you didn’t hear, I handed in IF I EVER (Prophet’s 4th and final book!) to my Riptide editor this past Friday 🙂 I’m assured by Riptide that you won’t have to wait too long for publication and I’ll let you know when / as I’m editing.

And one more re-release – I’ve finally gotten NO BOUNDARIES back up for sale (I got the rights reverted to me from Samhain and I had to reformat and all that good stuff)…again, I’ve just hit publish so the links will take up to 72 hours to repopulate.  This book series is a spin-off of Men of Honor and it includes Law / Paolo / Styx from Bound By Law. 

Again, thanks for the patience and trust in me.  I know it hasn’t been easy and trust me, it hasn’t been easy for me.  I’ve gotten some amazingly supportive emails and messages (and I love you guys for that), and some not so supportive (aka people emailing to let me know they just threw my books into the garbage) and all I can say is, having a chronic illness sucks.  Having two and not knowing it?  Sucks even harder, and yeah, it does mean that I barely had the energy to be a mom, and yes, it really was too hard to answer emails / post blogs / write books.  Honestly and literally. More on that later, but for now, I’m back up and running and writing.  I’ve done more writing (and finishing) in the past month than I have in four years and thanks to finding the right doctor, I can finally say that I’m going to be continuing.

XOXOXO,

SE

Good Morning…

So, I own this shirt:

And I was wearing it the other day when I went outside to…

Wait, WTF was I doing outside?  Rarely happens.  Anyway, must’ve been a compelling reason, like an Amazon box gone astray.  And I saw one of my neighbors while wearing my shirt.

Neighbor: Do you wear that T-shirt around your son?

Me: Yes. He’s having trouble sounding out assassin.

Neighbor: *frowns* Do you think that sends the right message?

Me: It’s fine. It’s not like he knows I have them.

Neighbor: *blinks*

Me: Have a great day!

Zoo: We’re definitely not getting invited to the mid-winter party.

Me:  That’s just another perk!

Re-release: Ties That Bind (MOH #3)

Hey everyone!  The holiday time was crazy, and that’s when I got back my rights to TIES THAT BIND:  Men of Honor Book 3 (altho technically this is more of a novella at 40K, the shortest of all the MOH books).  It’s also completely standalone, and, for the first time, it’s available in paperback!

If you’ve already got the earlier edition, there’s no need to rebuy (unless you want the new, pretty covers OR if you want a print version 🙂

TIES THAT BIND

Can two men let go of the past in order to find their future together?

When helo pilot Glen Rhodes flies Navy SEALs into the most dangerous places on earth, he has nerves of steel. Since his trusted Dom’s death three years ago, though, the thought of submitting makes him panic.

Determined to move on and long past ready to release the adrenaline rush from his job, Glen returns to home ground—and to the bar he hasn’t had the heart to enter for three long years. There, he meets a man who seems to fit naturally into the void.

Derek Mann has suffered his own losses, and he isn’t looking for permanent. Easy conquests don’t interest him, either. One look at Glen’s proud military bearing and sad eyes tells him that he has a challenge on his hands. And that winning Glen’s trust will unleash something wild and beautiful.

The plan is to tread lightly. But from the first touch of skin on skin, there’s no holding back…except when it comes to their deepest emotions. A Christmas Eve crisis pushes them both to their limits, leaving them no choice but to let go of the past…or let it pull them apart.

I’ve also updated the book pages and the Up Next pages with any release dates I have at this point, and I’m working on other things that haven’t been added to the schedule as of yet.  Thanks again for all your patience!

THIRDS: Inked 2 release day (a little early!)

THIRDS released a bit early — and  today instead of Friday (in most places:)!!!  It’s available as both an ebook and a print book.

Order links (as they go live!):

EBOOKS:  Amazon / Nook / ARe / Smashwords / Kobo / iTunes

PRINT BOOK:  Amazon

THIRDS: Inked, Book 2 

For Aleks, the third time wasn’t the charm…and fighting for survival was only the beginning…Thirds

 

Aleks is a tattoo artist at Inked. He’s also a man with a troubled history and a future bent on vengeance. But his plans for revenge are derailed when he meets a man with ties to his past. A man who also holds a promise of the future.

 

Brogan is dangerous for Aleks in more ways than one. He’s former military, a successful businessman and a strong hand in the bedroom—everything Aleks wants, under the worst possible circumstances. It’s up to Aleks to figure out what—and who—is worth fighting for.

 

Many of you have also asked if HOLD THE LINE: Inked 1 would be available in print, and the answer is yes, in October.  I’ll let you all know as soon as it’s ready.  I’m also working on putting the Mirror Series into print as well.  Speaking of, if you haven’t met Jacoby yet, you need to!

Also, check out the NEWS page to see the new audio releases I have (and some hot new Japanese translations of Prophet and Tommy!)

News: Bound By Honor & Bound By Law have new editions!

Okay, so I’ve gotten my rights back from Samhain for the 1st two Bound books (or Men of Honor books – I call them both!):  BOUND BY HONOR and BOUND BY LAW As my rights revert, I’ll get them all back (eventually!)  BoundByHonor_200x300

 

So…since I asked for notice from Samhain and got none (never miss an opportunity to do the wrong thing!), my books were pulled without my knowledge. It should be about 48 hours before they repopulate everywhere (they’re already live at All About Romance and Smashwords, pending at Amazon and B&N) but there are two things to note:BoundByLaw_800x1200

First, they have new covers.  But they are the same book (save for cover and interior formatting.

Second, the prices have changed.  For now, Bound By Honor is $2.99 and Bound By Law is 3.99.  I think these prices are slightly lower than they were and are subject to change again at any time.  So it might be a good time to grab them 🙂
