Kimberly invited me to a blog hop between authors…super fun! And since I always have to give things away, I’VE GOT GIFT CARDS AND BOOKS UP FOR GRABS!! Enter via the rafflecopter below.
Here’s what I’ve been up to!
What are you currently writing?
I’m working on another super sexy story in the Renegades series I write as Skye Jordan. Book three, Ricochet, is Ryker’s and Rachel’s story — a tortured military hero and the woman betrayed by the family she spent a lifetime pleasing. They are complex, deep, so very real and a heck of a lot of fun! I also just released a romantic suspense novella in the Sinful Seconds Anthology with five other bestselling authors.
What makes your work different?
First, I write for both emotion and escape. My contemporary stories as Skye Jordan will pull at your heart, but they won’t drag you so far down that you’re left feeling strung out. The Renegades books are super steamy, but the sex has meaning, purpose and emotion. And I give readers a glimpse inside the mysterious world of the stuntman—a pretty fascinating world…at least imo. My romantic suspense books as Joan Swan twine various suspense plots with romance, twining them until they become indistinguishable and intense. I use deep third person point of view in all my work so readers can get deep into the characters and live vicariously.
Why do you write what you do?
I love sexy books that turn up the heat, but that heat fizzles fast when the physical is simply…well, physical. When emotion and true story are added, the heat is even deeper and accomplishing that transformation is always very satisfying. Romantic suspense has always been one of my favorite genres to read and write because the suspense adds a whole other level of tension to the novel, which in turn ratchets up the heat between the hero and heroine’s romance, so there is always something exciting happening. I’ve always been fascinated in that elusive element that makes one person perfect for one other person, and explore that in every book.
What is your writing process?
I write almost everyday—about 28 out of 30 days in a month. Even when I’m struggling or feeling stuck, I write in a journal, make notes on a character or plot, something. I typically write mid-morning to mid afternoon and again at night. But I’m excited to say that I just secured an office space out of the house, away from two college daughters who are in and out of the house at crazy hours, a retired husband who loves to chat, two boisterous dogs who beg for attention, and a horse who pulls at me to ride. I’m planning on making sure this space changes my routine and adds more hours of writing to each and every day.

I have two sweet friends who released books last week–and I completely missed their release days!
Life has gotten away from me, but I don’t want these great books to get away from you! So I’m celebrating these releases with a big giveaway! All you have to do is help us spread the word about these saucy new books and you could win 1 of 10 books or 1 of 5 gift cards!
The first new release I’d like to tell you about is one I’ve read myself. CAN’T GO WITHOUT by Angelisa Stone, is book two in her Oasis Waterfall series. This book is an emotionally riveting read. Angelisa creates characters to die for and a hero to drool over.
CAN’T GO WITHOUT
“What’s the one thing you can’t go without?”
Tristan O’Donnell has money, women, and all the luxuries that cold hard cash can buy. Tristan’s been sucking sunshine right from the monogrammed silver spoon his life was served up on since the day he was born. And quite frankly, he wouldn’t want it any other way. He’s his mother’s pride and joy, his father’s right-hand-man, and the envy of every guy around. All Tristan has to do is flash his million dollar smile, give his trademark wink, and he gets what he wants, when he wants, anytime he wants.
Leah Franchetti grinds her fingers to the bone; sculpting, painting, recreating treasures from trash—the very sentiment that defines her life. Her inventive, vindictive, lucrative, and seemingly unforgivable plan allowed her to shortcut her way into the life she always imagined, owning an art gallery, surrounding herself in the comfort of her passion and dreams.
When circumstances force Leah and Tristan to come face-to-face with the past and with Leah’s devious manipulation, truths come flooding forth, destroying those in the present and possibly jeopardizing both of their highly anticipated futures. Can Tristan overcome Leah’s slander and deception—despite how dangerously close he comes to losing the one thing he can’t go without—money? Will Leah be forced to come clean, knowing she’ll have to live her life with the one thing she can’t go without—her dignity?
And the second release is CATCH ‘N’ KISS by Rhian Cahill. Are you game?
CATCH ‘N’ KISS
In this game of chase, a kiss isn’t the only reward.
Are You Game? Book 2
Divorced with two teenage daughters, Jody Walsh doesn’t need any more complications in her life, and Dan O’Conner is proving to be a big one. His pursuit may give her bruised ego a much-needed boost, but Jody’s learned to guard her heart and trust is something she isn’t willing to give another man no matter how well he kisses.
One kiss and Dan knows what he wants. He isn’t about to walk away from the kind of chemistry he and Jody have. Unfortunately, the more he chases the more she runs. If only he could get her running in his direction.
When a night of passion doesn’t convince her they’re meant to be, Dan is left with no choice but to prove he’s worth taking a risk on, no matter how much he complicates her life.
Warning: Story contains a woman not willing to put her heart at risk and a man determined to persuade her otherwise—and he’s willing to use his washing machine to show her why he’s worth it.

My good friend, Angelisa Stone has released a sexy, fun, tense page-turner, CAN’T GO HOME. And I’m helping her celebrate by giving away $100 in gift cards and 10 copies of her new book!
Just share the news of her release to enter! Check out the Rafflecopter page below.
All about CAN’T GO HOME:
Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl.
Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist?

Jessica Fury, Washington lobbyist, has money, connections, and her own firm. But five years ago she had something better: happiness. Her firefighter husband, Quaid, was handsome, courageous, and crazy about her. Then one day he walked into a chemical inferno—and never walked out. Jessica has been through hell to get back on her feet. And then a rumor surfaces that could bring a miracle or shatter her world – again.
Q has been a prisoner forever. He’s honed his mind and body into weapons. He’s developed abilities no one else understands. But he’s still at the mercy of a cabal of ruthless men, who blank his memory, test him like a lab rat, and tell him lies. Although his past has been erased and his future looks grim, instinct tells him he has a woman to live for. What his mind can’t remember, his body can’t forget…
