A new release! SEA SWEPT is live

Good Monday!

I'm so excited to share the release of "Sea Swept," a sexy short story set in San Diego, featuring a hot stranger from the sea that's perfect for summer beach reading.

Here's a little about the book:


SEA SWEPT

Sand, sun, a hot encounter with a man from the sea...
She's in for the vacation of her life...

Caitlyn Saunders is looking for a little fun in the San Diego sun. But when she's caught in a spring storm and swept out to sea by a tidal wave, she's not really surprised. She and Fortune have never been friends.

Still, who needs Fortune when you can have a dark, mysterious stranger?

Lukas knows he has more pressing matters to attend to than pleasuring the mortal woman he pulled from the sea. But how is a man supposed to concentrate on royal intrigue when such a tempting woman is lying naked in his arms? Proving to this fiery redhead that he's the furthest thing from a mermaid--or a maid of any kind--is too decadently sensual a test to resist.

"Sea Swept" is an erotic, 15,000 word short story that features explicit language and even more explicit sex scenes. 
(Formerly published as "Off the Deep End" in 2009. Newly revised for 2013 edition.)


Now available at Amazon (Other vendor links will be posted as they become available online.)

It was such fun to revisit this story and I adore the sexy new cover.

Hope you enjoy the read if you pick it up, it's only 1.49 from now until the end of August.

DEMON MARKED is out now!

Fresh Fiction calls DEMON MARKED "Well written and a damned fine read."



Desire burns in the second powerful Demon Bound novel-from the author of Shadow Marked.

Emma Quinn satisfies her demonic cravings by feeding on human life force, and keeps her conscience clean by preying only upon those who deserve it. But when Emma overindulges one night, she's in trouble with her victim's gang-or she will be...if they find his body. She turns to mob lawyer Andre Conti, an arrogant womanizer-a man who doesn't believe in her powers, but who will awaken sensual cravings Emma wasn't sure she possessed...

DEMON MARKED has received 4 and 1/2 stars from Romantic Times magazine, is a TOP PICK! over at Night Owl Reviews, and there's still time to enter to win a FREE copy of the book over at the Among the Muses blog: http://www.amongthemuses.com/2011/01/happy-release-day-interview-w-anna-j.html

Among the Muses went to a lot of trouble to do a great interview, so I hope you'll head over there if you get the chance. And if you'd like to learn more about DEMON MARKED, you can check it out online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or in person wherever books are sold. (Psst. Amazon has it on sale half price so get over there and snag your copy before the sale is over!)

Happy reading in 2011!

New Print Anthology: Perfectly Wicked!



I am so excited to share that all my Perfectly Wicked novellas--naughty re-imaginings of the stories of wicked women of fairy tale fame--are now all available in one print anthology. These are some of my first erotic stories and have a special place in my heart. I remember dashing out of the house when my now 6-year-old was still crawling and writing my heart out for two hours at Panera Bread Company every Saturday. It was a ritual I looked forward to all week, my time to work toward the goal of being published. My head nearly exploded when I found out "Main Attraction", the first in the series, had sold to Ellora's Cave.

Five years later, I am still thrilled to be working with EC, and feeling very lucky to have made that dream of publication a reality. Sniff!

Here's a little more about the stories in this book!

Main Attraction
Book One in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Edna Emily Argent Rella runs the Wicked Stepmother and her Stepsisters S&M parlor in Kingdom City, but she has a secret… She's not so terribly wicked. A dominatrix by necessity, rather than calling, she does her best to capitalize on her naughty reputation. After the smear campaign waged by her stepdaughter Cynthia, there aren't many other employment options.

Frank, the Captain of the Queen's Guard, has been sent to protect Edna from the stalker threatening her life. Posing as a client, this dominant male soon realizes he's in for more trouble than he bargained for.

Because Edna is a born submissive. And Frank can't resist the urge to show her what she's been missing while on the Mistress side of the fence.
Sinfully Sweet
Book 2 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Bella's a candy maker who's been framed for a horrible crime. Being accused of trying to boil children in a vat of peanut brittle has been bad for business, and even worse for her heart. Desperately trying to save her company, Bella's afraid the secret she's sworn to keep may force her to abandon her legacy as a beloved confectioner to the Kingdom.

Heath Miller makes toys — kinky sex toys. And he has a sweet tooth that's out of control. He'll do anything to convince Bella to create magnificent flavors for his edible underwear and flavored condoms…absolutely anything. But a simple seduction goes awry when Heath begins to lose his heart, and a hot and sticky encounter shows both lovers how quickly sweet can cross the line into sinful.
Bad Apple
Book 3 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Some women are misunderstood, others are a misdemeanor waiting to happen…

Katarina was a very bad girl, but she spent five years in the dungeon paying for her crimes and made a vow to leave her wicked ways behind her. She's praying a makeover and a stint on Kingdom City's newest reality show, Real-Life Ways to Catch a King, will help her get back on her feet. Unfortunately the show's producer, notorious bad boy Serge, is making it hard for her to resist giving in to her naughtier nature…

Serge is looking to turn his life around. He wants a wife and a family and a place in respectable society. Taking up with a former wicked queen with a penchant for poison apples isn't on his agenda. But Kat quickly proves to be irresistible, and when a mutual affection for public passion turns into something more, he has to make a decision. Break the heart of the only woman he's ever loved or risk forever being known as a "bad apple".
Beauty Sleep
Part of the Perfectly Wicked series.

After accidentally cursing a princess to a hundred years of sleep, fairy Calliope La Fae couldn't get hired to enchant horse dung, let alone work as a court fairy to a royal family. The only way she made it to the castle was by way of the dungeon, and the only way she made it out with her life was by risking the use of her fractured magic for the first time in years.

And so a spell is cast, and two lovers enchanted…

King Aaron should be concentrating on saving his brother from Calliope's enchanted castle, but he can't seem to keep his mind on anything but the fairy herself. Whether it's in the castle bath, by the side of the road or tied to a tree — he'll take Calliope any way he can get her, again and again. Even when the spell is broken, he can't get the woman out of his mind. There's no way he'll let her end up the next victim of her own magic, no matter what he has to risk to save her from her own century of beauty sleep.


Thanks for reading!

Shadow Marked out May 4th! And a must read rec.



Oh, man, ya'll. This book is out in less than two weeks! I really have done a poor job of getting the word out. But time, I can not haz.

So anyway...here's the word: "Shadow Marked" by me, out on May 4th. It's getting some good reviews, so I'm really hoping my readers will enjoy it.

Here the blurb:

Samantha Quinn has been in the dark since age six, when her parents sacrificed her sight in a Satanic ritual. She is trying to get over her demonic past, but horrific visions haunt her. Her intuition gets stronger after an adrenaline-fueled sexual encounter with Jace, her brother's childhood friend. Now Samantha is more tormented than ever by what she can "see"-and by what she felt in that forbidden encounter...

Her dark curse reveals that Jace will be the next victim, and it is crystal clear that she must destroy the demon to protect her love.

(This is a different blurb than is on the book, btw. I've never seen this blurb before, but it's pretty good. I think it gets the point across ;)).

You can learn more--and pre-order--here.

And don't forget that my critique partner and friend Stacia Kane has two amazing books coming out this month. Her Unholy Ghosts series is scarily, awesomely good. You will not regret snagging a copy of that, I assure you. (And if my assurance isn't enough, it's also a Romantic Times Top Pick for June and endorsed by people like Charlaine Harris.)



Learn more Here.

Have an excellent rest of your April, and thanks for reading,

"Kessa's Pride" by Kama Spice

Hey all!

Stopping by to share a new release from a talented friend, Kama Spice, a new writer for Ellora's Cave.






Blurb:

Valren grew up hearing stories of Kessa Lyah of the Silver lineage—one of the most powerful females in over a hundred years. As Leader King, he knew he would have to bring her back. She has risked the safety of the pride by living among humans. Besides, he was in heat and needed a powerful mate. What he hadn’t bargained for was how easily Kessa would drive him to the brink of madness, blinding him with savage desire.

Kessa Lyah has managed to subdue her animal urges while living among humans. But after the death of her human mate, a Leader King finds her and promises to bring her back to everything she’s left behind. When he sends two males and a female to remind her of what a real cat in heat is like, she is powerless to resist. The familiar scent of Lith’hah sex sends her into a frenzy. If this is how her body responds to ordinary pride members, resisting the lust of an alpha male will be almost impossible.


Wow...I don't know about ya'll, but that sounds like a damned fine read. I love me some shapeshifters, and am so excited to welcome a new author to the Ellora's Cave family. So go check out Kama's story and report back!

I'll return soon with more Shadow Marked news as the release date grows nigh!

Good vibes and happy reading,

Anna J. Evans
