Something Wicked This Way Comes - Volume 1 is available

It's available at Kindle and Barnes and Noble!!! Some reviews have come in and they are pretty fantastic. I had a lot of fun writing Captain of Nara's Heart and I really hope you'll give it a read. There are three more volumes coming out (I don't know the exact dates yet) that I have stories in. It will be released at Ellorascave and other vendors

In other news - my critique partner has her latest book out today! Some people ask me what a critique partner is. It basically boils down to we read each other's books, give feedback, and it helps us as writers to put out the best possible books that we're able. Kele's an amazing author and person. She had told me about the concept of this story, I was excited, and it was a JOY to read it. I'm in love with Clay. SIGH. He's hot! This is the first book in a series (Yippee - LOVE SERIES!!!) titled Battered Hearts. Here's the blurb and LINK.

When struggling waitress Melody Dylan gives a handsome, lonely stranger a simple gift she has no clue her life is about to take a drastic turn.

The stranger ends up being Clay Powers, a famous UFC heavyweight fighter. Clay’s large build and dangerous fists have always intimidated. People in his hometown keep their distance and Clay is fine with that. Everything changes when a new waitress at the local diner buys him a piece of pie on Thanksgiving. Touched by the gesture when it’s obvious she can barely afford to survive, her warm smile and lush body churn up powerful feelings that leave Clay wanting more from her than pie.

Melody is running from her past and the small, country town of Garnet is the perfect hiding place. With an ex-husband after her and scars from her abusive marriage etched deep, the last thing she expects is to fall for a man who makes a living with his fists, but she can’t resist Clay or the tender connection they share.

Finding love in the most unlikely of places, the passion is undeniable, but Clay and Melody know their haunted pasts and unpredictable futures leave the odds stacked against them.

And...I've got one more book coming out this month. The 5th New Species - Brawn comes out! It's available for pre-order at Kindle and Barnes & Noble. It releases on Dec 27th at both of those sites and on Dec 30th at Ellorsacave and other vendors. The excerpt is up at the Ellorascave link. : )

I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and Happy New Year!!! It's been an amazing year for me. I keep thinking back to the beginning of 2009 when I decided to go all out in an attempt to become published. I had a dream I'd been harboring since 1993 when I wrote my first book, I loved writing so much I had written 54 of them in my spare time, and I honestly had no idea if I'd ever see one of my books anywhere except on my computer screen. LOL! Now I have 21 books out or about to be out and 6 of them are in print ( Melting Iron is now IN print - LINK) I also learned that FURY will be put into print next month so I'll post when it is!!!

It's changed my entire life. I get all teary just thinking about it (okay, I turn into a sniffling mess - in the good way!) Happy tears. I couldn't do any of it without all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving my books a read.


  1. Merry Xmas Laurann. All I can say is that I'm very happy that you're addicted to writing because I find that I'm addicted to reading your novels. Keep 'em comin'! They're bloody fantastic.
    Hoping you and your family have a great New Year.

  2. Thank you, BD. I get to do what I love...and that's the best thing ever. More books will be coming. Lots more! LOL!

  3. Merry Christmas Laurann and you dear family

    Debra G - Thank you! Merry Christmas to you too!

    Kaye - Thanks! Hope you have a joyous season too!

    Anon - LOL. Holidays can be STRESSFUL. Reading is always a joy for me. I totally get it and it doesn't make you weird at all! LOL! Wishing you an AWESOME Christmas and New Year too!!!

    ADDED INFO - Fury got a Jan 6th release date for PRINT at Ellorascave but it's already showing available at Amazon and B&N. : )

  8. Hi,
    Just finished 'Something Wicked...' well done. What a fun read. Just wondering if the Kele Moon book mentioned above is going to be released on Kindle? Thanks!

  9. Hi Anon, Thank you. Yes, Kele's book will hit Amazon soon. I don't know the exact time.

  10. Please excuse this "repeat post", I am a techno-yutz at times. When I posted this before it was when I was reading "old posts", so I don't think it showed up right. If it did, then SORRY!

    I hope you will tell us what happens to the humans, owned by cyborgs as actual slaves. Not all of them ended up with good "owners" and some were abused/sterilized and passed around as sex slaves (Iron planned to do with Mia). I loved how Zorus got his "head slapped" verbally by Cyan about forcing multiple males in a family, he and Iron need to get shown the results of their slavery idea to the poor women not lucky enough to find a mate. The Council will have to do something with them, it would serve the ones who called them "furniture trying to tell someone not to sit on it" (Darius, Blackie, etc.) right to have to face the results of their stupidity. They should have to "fix" what they did! We never did hear what Darius' punishment was for stealing Charlie, other than a "butt-whooping." I hope he got booted from his family unit.

    Since most of the sexual slavery seemed to occur on ships, I can just imagine the counsel's reaction when they have to deal with what happened, especially those married to humans. I doubt that all cyborgs "owning" the sex slaves would want to give them up, makes me think of the "gift females" from New Species, someone will have to rescue them.

    I am looking forward to Brawn, I pre-ordered from B N.


  11. Thank you, thank you!! I love you to death hon!! Wishing you many, many, many sales on both Something Wicked and Brawn!!

    (((Huge hugs)))


  12. Laurleen - I'm writing more books in the Cyborg series and some of those questions will be answered in them. You'll also see some gift female stories coming out in the future with the New Species : )

    Kele - I love you too and your stories! Thank you. For those of you waiting for Kele's book to hit amazon - it loaded there. Here's a copy and paste link


  13. I loved this story and I hope that Flame gets his own story and Brass too.

  14. I'm reading the New Species books right now. Love them!! PLEASE tell me Brass gets his own book!

  15. Brawn's HIT the list of the New York Times and the USA Today Bestseller Congratulations to you for writing it and to Mr. Laurann for his love and understanding of your work. And by the way Brawn rocks.

    Hope the new book get out soon.


  16. I love your new species series. I saw that Wrath is 919 from book five, have we met his mate yet in a previous book?

  17. I Just want to say, please dont stop writing New Species series. I love them all. and look forward to more. I had just finished with Brawn. The way you described Justice and Tiger. All of them, they sound like hot guys. Please let us know the dates of the next ones.
