Monday marks the start of a beautiful week. Coffee in hand, books to read, work to do, I can handle weeks like this. Especially when they start off with fun items to share with you that are book-related. All we have to do is count down to the holiday weekend coming up and it will be smooth sailing through the end of the month. At least I hope it is!

I have 5 spectacular books launching this week and two of them are out this morning. That's a great way to start this last week of May!

Learn all about them as well as sneak peeks of the two new series launching this week at the links below!

Guardian e-book coverTitle: Guardian
Series: Diary of a Dark Monster Book 1
Release Date: 05/23/2022

Henry Nuemann is tall, dark and rich and about to launch a new invention on the world. But he’s also keeping secrets.

He’s a shifter – all fur and fangs – and a vigilante in the shadows of Seattle.

Now that the world knows about Oriceran and magic, mayhem has come creeping up out of the bowels of the city. Henry is determined to push back.

A new twisted figure has arrived on the scene – Bechtel Stryker – and he has an ancient bone to pick with Henry. His people, the Picts were robbed of their essence eons ago, and Henry has a piece of the puzzle. Stryker wants it back and he’s willing to do whatever it takes.

Will Henry negotiate with an ancient warrior when his loved ones are threatened? Or will he do what he does best?

Fight with honor and to the end, even if no one ever knows his secrets.

Title: Reclamation
Series: Fringe Colonies Book 5
Release Date: 05/23/2022

The time for hiding in the shadows is over.

Dante has one goal. To retake Corsera and become the governor he set out to be.

Older, wiser, and ready to step up and take on the responsibilities that entails, it’s time for Dante to face his demons—and the mate who betrayed him.

Something in the air…

Finally finding her feet, and her wings, Kit is determined that she’s going to see Dante back where he belongs after everything he has done for her and the rest of the Xeartais.

And she’s not alone.

The Xeartais crew is stronger than ever, and those who considered Corsera as their home are willing to do whatever it takes to get it back.

But fighting people you once called mates has a cost at a whole new level, and they call Corsera home as well. When two alliances both want something so badly, there’s only one guarantee:

The fight will be hard, and not everyone can win.

Who will lose the most? And will it be worth it?

Title: At the Speed of Yeti
Series: Demon Codex Book 2
Release Date: 05/24/2022

Professor Watson and his students fought an epic battle to stop the necromancer who gathered portions of the Demon Codex and threatened to unleash chaos throughout the world.

They rescued the trapped souls from his skeletal clutches, and banished the lich to another plane, winning the day.

Or did they?

Watson suspects that their success is just a feint in a larger game from the necromancer.

On the off chance that he’s right, Watson must round up other fragments of the Demon Codex before others fall victim to its power.

He can’t do it alone, but who can he trust?

Worse still, his opponent knows him better than he knows himself and is second guessing his every move. In a time of crisis and uncertainty, Watson must turn to old, otherworldly powers if he wants any hope of defeating his undead opponent.

Can Watson find help before its too late? Or will another betrayal shift the balance of magic in the world?
