Eostre’s Baskets: A New Dawn

My first book, A New Dawn, a het paranormal Easter story for Loose Id’s Eostre’s Baskets collection, comes out April 15 from Loose Id. I’m completely excited about it. Ridiculously nervous. Head over heels in love with my cover, my characters, my collection co-authors, so bear with me while I say ALL the things related to it. I promise, I’ve got other stuff to talk about. Eventuallie. 😉

A New Dawn



(cover by Syneca Featherstone (who is so fantastic I could die))

Amnesiac Essie Sundae has no idea that her psychically-inspired Easter baskets have antagonized treacherous supernatural entities. Or that her new lover is anything other than the identity-challenged shape-shifter he claims to be. To Essie, he’s the answer to her loneliness and, if she dares to trust him, possible help in filling in her blanks in her memory.

Xavier Cassidy, aka Rule 34, the soon-to-be god of internet porn, made an ill-advised deal to get help with his little identity problem. Now, he has no choice but to ‘recover’ a priceless treasure from Essie, even though he’s gone and fallen head over fins, heels or claws for the supernatural beauty who seems to have no idea who she is.

When new threats arise, imperiling Essie’s entire existence, Xav’s true nature is revealed. She needs his help more than ever, and he’ll risk his more-or-less immortal life to give it to her — if she’ll let him.

But Xav’s not the only one who’ll have to sacrifice for Essie to make their sexily ever after.

I hope you’ll check it out when it releases. In the meantime, you can see what Essie has to say about herself and the characters of my collection co-authors in the Characteristicallie tag.
