Release: The Mercenary and the Shifters, by CD Hersh

Whimsical Wednesday

a blog where anything can happen

Announcing CD Hersh’s latest book: The Mercenary and the Shifters

(The Turning Stone Chronicles Book 4)

        51ywcdcq1xl

When mercenary soldier Michael Corritore answers a desperate call from an ex-military buddy, he finds himself in the middle of a double kidnapping, caught in an ancient war between two shape shifter factions, and ensnared between two female shape shifters after the same thing … him.

Shape shifter Fiona Kayler will do anything to keep the shipping company her father left her, including getting in bed with the enemy. But when she believes the man trying to steal her company is involved with kidnapping her nephew, she must choose between family, fortune, and love. The problem is … she wants all three.

Title – The Mercenary and the Shifters, The Turning Stone Chronicles, book four

Author – C.D. Hersh

Genre – Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Suspense Romance

Heat Level – Sensual

Release Date: July 27th, 2016

Excerpt:

Mike Corritore wheeled up the circular drive of the impressive house on Lakeshore Road and cut the engine on his motorcycle. After a quick glance around, he shouldered the bags containing his clothes, ammo, pump shotgun, and talwar sword. Then he headed for the carved front door. The doorbell echoed inside indicating the mansion had a cavernous entry hall. He searched the entrance stoop for security cameras and found none.

What the heck had he gotten himself into? A rich bitch, with no security on her home, mixed up with a bad syndicate spelled major trouble. With this chintzy level of security, it would take more time than he originally anticipated to make her house and business secure.

After a couple of minutes the door opened.

“Can I help you?” asked an attractive redhead.

“I’m Mike Corritore. Here to see Fiona Kayler. Will you tell her I’ve arrived?”

The redhead looked him over, then braced her legs shoulder width apart and crossed her arms over her curvy bust. “Do you have identification, Mr. Corritore?”

Mike returned her once-over. Her porcelain complexion blushed pink at his bold examination, and she tossed her mane of wavy, mahogany hair defiantly.

Damn, she was gorgeous.

If she thought her insolent pose enough to keep him, or intruders out, she’d better reconsider.

“Hugh sent me.” He stepped forward but she blocked him.

“A driver’s license for your very expensive motorcycle will suffice,” she said, wiggling her fingers at him. When he didn’t comply, she stepped back and reached to the side of the door.

The distinct cachung of a gun cocking sent him flying to the right of the doorway.

“Identification, Mr. Corritore. Please,” she said as she leveled a pistol at him.

Mike dug in his rear pants’ pocket. “Hugh lied,” he said as he held out his driver’s license. “You don’t need protection.”

After inspecting his identification, she lowered her weapon and waved him inside. “For my business, Mr. Corritore. I’m capable of protecting my home, but I can’t draw my gun just anywhere.”

“You should get a conceal and carry license,” Mike said as he entered.

She put the safety on the gun and stashed the weapon in the table beside the front door.

“I take it you’re not the help,” he said, glancing around the entry hall.

She held out her hand. “Fiona Kayler. Nice to meet you, Mr. Corritore.”

“Mike,” he said, taking her hand. Her palm, warm and soft, told him she lived a life of leisure. But her strong grip screamed, No patsy. He held her hand a bit longer than he should have. She wriggled free and waved him to the left.

“Ladies first.”

With a nod, she led him toward a sumptuously decorated room. He followed, his eyes taking in the soft curves of her rear as she sashayed across the marble-tiled floor. Mike’s body reacted to the seductive wiggle of her bottom. She walked as sexy as she looked.

Keep your mind on the job, Corritore. He shifted his gaze away from temptation, searching the ceiling and corners of the entry for security cameras. If she had them, they were well hidden.

The measured click of her high heels on the hard marble tile floor disappeared as they stepped on the thick, white carpet of the living room. This room appeared cozier than the entry. A huge gold, gilt-edged mirror hung over the fireplace reflecting the scene outside the oversized plate-glass window.

She motioned to a seat beside the fireplace. Mike chose a location less exposed to the exterior, where he could watch the entrance to the room. Fiona dragged a side chair across the room to where he sat, positioning it at a right angle to his seat. Two vertical furrows appeared in the carpeting, bisecting their shoe impressions and the vacuumed paths in the thick fibers. Apparently, she didn’t use this room much.

“So, Ms. Kayler—”

“Fiona,” she corrected.

“Fiona, exactly what do you need me to do?” As he said the words, he had a lurid vision of what he’d like to do to this lovely woman. He shook it off. She was Hugh’s friend and in trouble. He had no business screwing around with damsels in distress. They were needy. The last thing he wanted.

“A couple of years ago I had a problem with smugglers. They brought in some hazardous materials which got me in trouble with Homeland Security and the FBI. They cleared me, but my business took a pretty big hit. To keep things afloat, I’ve had to get in bed with some rough characters recently.”

At the phrase get in bed with Mike cocked his eyebrow at her.

“Not literally,” she amended quickly, as a dusky pink blush crept over her pale complexion. “I need my security beefed up so I don’t have a replay of two years ago.”

“Any good security company could upgrade you.”

“I also need someone I can trust implicitly. Hugh vouched for you, and I trust Hugh.”

“We should start with your home security. I didn’t see surveillance cameras at the door.”

“My home is perfectly safe. It’s my business I’m concerned about.”

Fiona crossed her arms over her chest, her body language closing off to further suggestions. Mike followed her motions. As he did, he spotted a red dot on her chest. The dot wiggled.

“Get down!” Mike shouted as he dove for Fiona.

Cinder Released! And enter to win a Kindle Fire 6

cinder: a sexy shifter fantasy romance by jessica aspen

When curvy Cinderella meets a charming reluctant alpha, can he save her from a stepmother who means murder? 

Cinder Vandeburg dreams getting away from her overbearing stepmother and getting a real job—one that pays. When her stepsisters are finalists in a teen modeling competition at a chic resort in the beautiful mountains of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, her step mother offers her an opportunity: prove herself a competent personal assistant and earn not only a stellar referral, but a bona-fide introduction to the movers and shakers of the modeling world. This is Cinder’s chance at freedom but as usual, her stepmother seems to find fault in everything she does—even when she sends her to seduce suspected modeling judge, Aiden Burdock.

Aiden is no modeling judge. He’s a tour guide with a pack of bachelor wolves depending on him to rustle up quality clients and keep their business afloat. But Aiden never wanted to be an alpha. He dreams of freedom and running wild in the hills. Having six…no seven…now eight wolves depending on him for leadership and jobs is more than he counted on when he fled pack expectations in Colorado. But his alpha tendencies can’t be ignored and when he sees curvy Cinder being treated as the runt of the litter, he lies and says he’s a judge to get her away from her malicious boss.

Now Aiden is faced with how to tell Cinder he’s just a working stiff, like her, and a wolf shifter to boot. As Aiden and Cinder’s fairy godmother build up her self esteem and she starts falling in love with a man of secrets, Cinder’s stepmother is determined one of her daughters will win the modeling competition. Even if it means she has to go all the way—and permanently eliminate the competition.

Lions and wolves and bears, oh my.

And I have more coming. Broken Mirror, book three of the fantasy romances will be out in 2015 (I know you are all waiting!) and I also have a little backstory novella in the works that is a companion to the Tales of the Black Court series that should be out around the same time.

Whew! That’s a busy year. And to celebrate I’m having a party!

bake, love, write

I’m in a cookbook! Author Lois Winston put together a dessert cookbook with over 105 authors (mostly romance authors) and it includes not just recipes, but their advice on writing and love. So look for author Jessica Aspen and my recipe for, Dark Forest Fruitcake. It’s gluten and grain free, and full of chocolate love!

bake, love, write: 105 aurhots share dessert recipes

What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences. And when authors chat with each other, they often talk about their writing and their lives. Recipes. Writing. Relationships. In this cookbook 105 authors not only share their favorite recipes for fabulous cakes, pies, cookies, candy, and more, they also share the best advice they’ve ever received on love and writing.

Discover the  ebook for only 99cents!

How to Discover Paranormal Romance

Thursdays Bite

a blog for the paranormal romance lover

fussy librarian seal of approval In this day and age of digital shopping, how are we supposed to find paranormal romance books we love when there are masses and masses of new romance titles every day?

In the old days, I would go to the library and look at the shelves, check out a book and see if I liked the author. If I did, then I would go buy all their books. And that was if my library carried romance. Or paranormal romance. Usually  I would go to the bookstore and check out the new, romance covers and decide that way. But now, both of those ways of shopping for books have deep flaws.

With publishers shrinking their mid-list authors, the only new authors on the bookstore shelves are the same old authors. And bookstores do not carry very many indie-authors, the most prolific and inventive authors out there. As for libraries I found out that ours gets rid of books that haven’t been checked out in a year. That means many of my favorites won’t be there for new readers to discover. Or they only have books two and three, and I really want to start with book one. And libraries also are unable to include many indie authors. They have to discover them too!

So what’s the best way to find new paranormal romance books? And new paranormal romance authors to love?

If you want to try the newest romance authors you need to shop online. But if you go to Amazon, you are at the mercy of what they think you might like. My inbox is full of Amazon letters suggesting mostly books I’m not interested in. Here’s where my new way of shopping comes in.

Lists, like The Fussy Librarian, help readers discover new books to read. You may have heard of Book Bub or Kindle Daily Deals, but The Fussy Librarian is different. Not only does it sort the books into categories, like paranormal or mystery, but it also sorts out your heat and violence preferences. Here’s how they put it:

With millions of books out there, it can be time consuming to find the good stuff. We can help! Only The Fussy Librarian remembers what genres you like and your preferences about language, violence and sexual content. Like only cozy mysteries? We’ll only send you an email when there’s a mystery that doesn’t have sex, violence or profanity. Read everything? We’ll send you lots of suggestions each day. It’s that easy!  http://www.thefussylibrarian.com/

This is terrific! Not only are my books sorted by the genre I want to read most, but I won’t be getting too many sweet novels mixed in with my spicy ones. Or vice versa, if you prefer the sweet ones, you won’t have to look at BSDM covers! It’s a terrific idea and I’m jumping on the bandwagon.

Tomorrow my paranormal romance novel, The Dark Huntsman, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court, will be featured in a mailer from The Fussy Librarian.

Check out the Fussy Librarian today and see how to sign up for targeted emails that are aimed at exactly your reading preferences. Discover new books, romance, mystery, horror, and only get the ones in your inbox that you want. Click HERE to sign up today.

How do you discover new books? Do you subscribe to any mailing lists? Do you depend on Amazon to suggest reading for you?
