Here’s the info on Susie’s book…

One woman. Three promises—one honored, one broken, one pledged.

She’s struggling with shocking truths while trying to move on; he’s caught in the crossfire of a battle he doesn’t know how to fight.

Another round of turmoil isn’t on her agenda, but when Ryleigh Collins discovers a blood-stained journal among herfireflies deceased mother’s belongings, her curiosity leads her to a puzzling Mark Twain look-alike who shatters her family history—and her sense of belonging.

Bearing a treasure chest of secrets and a deeply scarred heart, Ryleigh returns home to her ex-husband’s appeal to take him back. Overwhelmed, she seeks refuge in the quiet majesty of the Rocky Mountains. But as the snow deepens, so do her feelings for Logan Cavanaugh, the distinctly reserved resort owner.

Two lost souls collide in a paralyzing snowstorm, but when the skies clear, Logan surrenders to a deepening guilt he can’t fight. Ryleigh’s sense of abandonment is further compromised with his sudden departure, though she refuses to believe they’ve left their shared memories frozen in the mountains of Colorado.

Three men love her. Sometimes there’s only room in a heart for one; sometimes, there’s a special place where everyone belongs.

Fangtastic: Esha’s Story

DM-Fchron-Elisha's-Story-432x648Drum roll… Esha’s Story is now available.

These two characters may be my favorite fanged duo. It also helps that that the book has a fantastic cover designed by Fantasia Frog Designs. Fantasia has performed her artistic magic on all my Fang Chronicles and Dragon covers. As you can see, she’s awesome.

Sooo, Esha’s Story

You met Rondy in Ivan’s book and now he’s all grown up. Well, as much as a young vampire can be. He hangs onto his Goth ways and doesn’t take immortal life too seriously. Or, at least that’s what he wants his friends to believe. It was so much fun to uncover Rondy’s snarky exterior and allow him a few surprises.

Now, enter a female tiger shifter with a set of problems that seemingly can’t be overcome. The first being if Rondy doesn’t kill her, she’ll go wild and possibly consume more humans than her ancestor, the Champawat Tiger. Go ahead and click here for the 411 on the Chapawat Tiger. You’ll have goosebumps.

Esha’s Story is packed with adventure, love, heartache, violence, and redemption as well as some old fanged friends.

Esha can be read as a standalone novel and is 99 cents for a limited time.

Dragons, Cops, and USA Today

It’s Release Day for Dragons!

DM-DragonsdForgive-750x1125Finally, Dragons Don’t Forgive is available. You will need to forgive me for this emotional story. Early feedback has been wonderful but everyone says they cried. I cried while writing so I guess we’re even. I’m working on book 4 and hoping to have it out in the next few months.

Here’s a friend’s message to me about Dragons Don’t Forgive

“I am nearing the end of the book and I am bawling!!! I’m in such a conundrum. I need to turn the page to find out what happens but I’m so scared of being heartbroken if what might happen happens…”

 It’s Release Day for “The Forever Team”

The Forever Team1Now don’t panic if you’re scratching your head. The Forever Team written as Suzie Ivy came out in the 10-Code Anthology back in January. I took the story and cleaned it up (language, sexual innuendo, i.e. typical cop stuff) to make it appropriate for age 10+ readers. It’s a short story about a female police detective who doesn’t get along with her fellow officers. She’s teamed up with a very special K9 because the dog can’t write complaints about her. I simply love this story and it’s the first of my books my grandchildren can read. It’s available for 99 cents as an ebook and $5.99 in paperback.

Romancing the Paranormal made the USA Today Best-Sellers List!

RtP came it at #49 which means it also made the print edition of U.S.A. Today. Because I live in a small town, I haven’t found a copy but I’m hopeful. It’s pretty cool seeing D’Elen McClain on the list and I made it last August as Holly S. Roberts. What a wild ride and it wouldn’t have happened without readers. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I also owe a huge thank you to the authors involved in this project. You are amazing women and I’m proud to be a part of this collection with you!

Dragons Don’t Love  Excerpt

Roxanne

I sharpen my two-foot steel blade before holding it up against the morning sun. The light shines off the blade, which fractures it into multiple beams of brilliance. Soon it will bathe in blood—the magical blood of a dragon. I will clean off the gore using my white bride’s dress and dance in the red puddles after I kill him. No sister of mine will become a dragon’s bride today. My death for this deed will be satisfying—the ultimate sacrifice.

I’ve spent most of my life preparing. No one in the village knows my true intentions. My parents think I’m reconciled to my fate. I was born during the span of years that established me as a claiming bride. A week ago, a proclamation went up throughout town informing the brides that our time has come. Our duty to keep the peace between dragons and humans demands our presence at the claiming. Today.

Early on, I used my family’s need for fresh meat and my father’s disability as the reason for learning to hunt. Every minute of every day that I could safely get away from home, I sharpened my skills. If the men of my town won’t defend the women, I will.

Slipping off my dreary daily garments, I don the beautiful, white, sacrificial gown required to entice my enemy. I secure the sword into the hidden back sheath knowing I can remove it and use it before anyone stops me. The virgins of this town will truly have something to celebrate tonight. I adjust my dark hair so it completely covers the blade’s grip. I walk from the glade with my shoulders back and my head held high refusing to acknowledge my racing heart and shaking knees.

I have a dragon to kill.

Get Ready To Slam!

completion promoI’m always exhausted by release day but it’s such a great feeling. The blog tour is now underway so I’m not slowing the frantic pace. 77 blogs signed up so my typing fingers are staying busy visiting each site. Thank you bloggers, you humble me with your support. I’ll have a daily list of tour stops at the bottom of this post. I’m giving away some books and Amazon gift cards so be sure to click on at least one stop per day and enter.

#slamsecret
#slamsecret

I’m so very excited about the #slamsecret contest too. I had so much fun coming up with the details and implementing them in the book. Nope, no clues here. I guess my only worry is that no one will figure it out. I ran it past my daughter and she wasn’t sure if she would. She thinks someone will get it though. We’ll see and I wish everyone the best of luck. I’ve never given away $100 in a single shot so this is big for me. Get reading, you have until 02/28/2015 to figure it out. Click here for contest details.

Slam is a little different. I wanted humor, intrigue, and romance. No, don’t worry, I didn’t forget the sex. Holly never forgets the sex 🙂

Tennis darling Olivia Stradmore has a stalker who turns up the fear factor in chapter one. This book is not about him, though. I really wanted the bad guy to take a back seat to the romance. I also wanted a strong, kickass female who faces her fears and grows stronger with the help of gorgeous bodyguard Brack Jacobs. And humor! We all need to laugh and I hope these two bring you some smiles.

Pre-Order “Slam”

slam 1 500Slam is now available on Amazon for pre-order. Reserve you copy here. It releases January 27th 2015. I’m including the blurb below. If you want a bigger teaser sign up for my newsletter 🙂 I’m excited to get this book out the door. It’s due to my editor on Jan. 1.

We have recently moved to a new city and settled in quite nicely. I don’t remember buying and selling a home being quite so stressful but we survived. I love my new office and it’s been great as I get back into the writing groove.

I wish all of you the Merriest Christmas and Happiest Holidays ever. I have lots of new projects planned for the New Year. You’ll hear more about them here and in my newsletter.

Kisses and hugs,

Holly/D’Elen with a little Suzie thrown in!

Slam Blurb:

tennis racquet 1Olivia Stradmore, daughter to Senator Jonathan Stradmore, has one goal in life—win her fifth grand slam tennis title in as many years.

Olivia doesn’t have time for problems with a stalker who disapproves of her less than modest life choices. She enjoys the occasional tennis pro in bed, short skirts, and the chance to allow her wild side out.

Her dreams take a turn when her stalker, known only as Ty, runs over her with a van and puts her in the hospital. Ty will stop at nothing to possess what he covets.

Enter bodyguard Brack Jacobs—hair too long, attitude too uptight, and body too damn hot.

Brack has a job to do and sleeping with a target is not in the target’s best interest. Doesn’t matter that Olivia is sexy as hell and bent on adding a notch to her bedpost with Brack’s name on it.

Life is not as straightforward as it seems and deadly consequences await them both.

Can Olivia change Brack’s mind and turn a spark of desire into a raging inferno? Will Brack survive the flames or would slam, bam, thank you ma’am be his safest bet?

– A Completion Sports Book. Expect erotic sex, an alpha male, and more balls than a girl knows what to do with.

Exciting Fang News

DM-Fchron-Ivan-432x648I’m very excited to announce  Fang Chronicles: Ivan is now available for pre-order.

If you haven’t read a Fang book, no worries. I tested this installment on an unsuspecting reader and she loved it without having read the prior books.

October 10th is the release day for Ivan.

 

Update: Releasing on Sept. 30th, ten days early!

I’m still working on it, though now, I have a strict deadline for the polished product. My home will be a calmer place when I achieve my goal. I get testy when I’m at the end of the book writing process. My husband would use a different word but we’re not asking him.
