Giorgio starts a new series, Vigilance. This is a spinoff from The Marchesi Family but it can be read on its own. Vigilance is a secret group of former spec ops soldiers and federal agents who handle problems the police can’t or won’t touch.
I’m a sniper. A trained operator. A bodyguard. A member of the elite private security force known as Vigilance.
When my boss’s son acquires a stalker, of course I’m the one he calls to keep the guy safe. Mr. X’s one rule? Keep my hands to myself.
Not a problem.
At least, not until I meet Lane Porter.
He’s gorgeous. Flamboyant. Fascinating. He makes me want things I can’t have. He stretches my self-control to the limit… and then breaks it.
As the threat to Lane intensifies, we’re forced to hide out in a remote, one-bedroom cabin with danger stalking us from all sides, but suddenly keeping the boss’s son safe isn’t enough.
My new mission is to make Lane mine.

The Island Dragon’s Mate is out now!
I’d nearly resigned myself to a life alone when the sea brings me a beautiful omega who smells like heaven. I realize he’s mine, and I’ll do anything to protect him. He doesn’t know his name or how he got to my island, but he feels our connection. I wait for his memory to return, but no matter what happened in his past, I won’t let it take him from me.
I woke up on a beach with a big, gorgeous man standing over me, but I can’t remember my name. I should be afraid, but I’m not. This man feels safe, his touch comforting. Even when I learn he’s actually a dragon, I’m not intimidated. He’s caring and protective, and he wants a big, loving family just like I do. I don’t want to think about my past, only my time with Desmond. But when my old life catches up with me, I’ll have to find a way to face my past while protecting my future.

The City Dragon’s Mate is the third book in Lonely Dragons Club, an mpreg series where thousand-year-old dragons long for their fated mates.
Best Decision Ever: Hiring a man in need of discipline and finding out he’s your fated mate.
When a friend calls, hoping I’ll take a problem employee off his hands, I jump at the chance. Despite running a large company and having a bustling city at my feet, I’m bored. I need a project. And if that project happens to be teaching a young man discipline, all the better.
But when he arrives, I realize my mistake. Pierre carries burdens from his past and needs my comfort as well as my discipline. My dragon instincts tell me I’m never going to want to let him go.
I made a terrible mistake, and it nearly cost me my life. Now I’ve got a second chance with Bartholomew, and I’m determined not to screw it up, no matter what he requires of me. But I didn’t expect to want him so much, not when longing for a different dragon was what got me into this mess in the first place.
All I’d ever wanted was security, but now I’m falling in love. And nothing sounds riskier than trusting my heart to a dragon.

The Christmas Dragon’s Mate is the first book in Lonely Dragons Club, an mpreg series where thousand-year-old dragons long for their fated mates.
Best Surprise Ever: Going out to add to your Christmas hoard and finding your fated mate.
I’ve been longing to find my mate for over a thousand years. When I see him for the first time, he’s standing beneath sparkling glass ornaments, like a present waiting to be unwrapped. A present I intend to lay claim to.
If I can lure him back to my lair, I’ll shower him with so many gifts he’ll never want to leave. Bonded with my mate by Christmas? Yes, please.
I’m no good at flirting and have terrible luck with men, so when a gorgeous alpha says he wants to take me home, I’m shocked. And wary. My heat is about to start, and I’ve never shared it with anyone, so why do I suddenly want to say yes to this stranger?
There’s something unusual about him, the way his eyes shine, the odd phrases he keeps using. He says he wants to add me to his collection of beautiful things. I should be offended, but instead, I’m intrigued. Just this once, should I take a risk?
Lonely Dragons Club 2 is up for preorder.
The Snow Dragon’s Mate is available for preorder. It will be released on November 29.

Grab your copy of Bodyguard’s Bite now!
What if the one thing you wanted most was forbidden?
Wealthy werewolf Storm Howler wants a chance to act out his submissive fantasies without his overprotective brothers scaring off every dominant man in sight. If he can’t choose his own partners, how will he ever find his fated mate?
As the former leader of a shifter special forces unit, Jax knows how to keep people safe, but he also craves the one thing he never had in the military: control.
When Storm and Jax meet, tension sizzles between them. It only takes one night of control and surrender for each of them to question whether they’re fated for one another. But the next day, they discover Storm’s brothers have hired Jax as Storm’s new bodyguard. Rather than resign, Jax agrees to the hands-off policy in his employment contract, because no one can protect Storm as well as he can. But when danger threatens, Storm needs a man who can calm his mind as easily as he protects Storm’s body. The two begin spending more time together, and there’s only so long anyone can fight against fate—or love.
If you haven’t read the first Howler Brothers book, Claiming Bite, grab your copy now.

Anticipating Temptation is out now! I’m so happy to be able to share Rob and Marty with you!
Here’s a little more about their story:
Marty doesn’t want to need a Daddy, but he’s still anticipating temptation…
Marty’s new boss pushes all his buttons. He’s confident, capable, and he expects to get his way.
But Marty’s past experience has made him wary of dominant men and determined to establish his independence. Even if deep down he knows Rob will treat him right, he can’t put his new job at risk. Everyone knows sleeping with your boss is a terrible idea.
Rob is the CEO of a company he built himself. He’s wealthy and successful, but he’s also lonely.
While he’d never admit it, he longs for a place to call home and a man to love.
Before he met Marty, Rob never felt such a protective urge toward anyone. When he hires Marty to be the housekeeper for his new ranch, Rob doesn’t just want Marty to work for him. He wants to be Marty’s Daddy. Rob is a man who always goes after what he wants, even if he has to break some rules.
Get Rob and Marty’s book here.

I’ve had several readers ask about a recipe for the unicorn cupcakes from Anticipating Rejection. While I’ve made many of the cupcakes in the book and I’ve made the cake and frosting from the unicorn cupcakes, I’ve not made unicorn cupcakes exactly like Noah’s so I don’t have a picture of mine to share, however, I do have the recipes you’ll need to put yours together and some ideas for easier alternatives. I’m planning to make some in the next few weeks and I’ll come back and post my results (warning: my decorating skills aren’t up to Noah’s standards).
When he makes the Unicorn cupcakes, Noah says he uses a cake he often uses for wedding cakes that has a light lemon flavor.
Use the lemon cake from this Martha Stewart recipe.
Or if you want something quicker, Duncan Hines Classic White Cake is a good mix. Add 1/2 tsp lemon extract and 1 tsp lemon zest.
Noah says he uses the icing from his Dreamsicle cupcakes. These are cupcakes I make frequently and this is the icing recipe I use.
**You may want to double it to have plenty to color and experiment with.
Whip butter with a stand mixer or a hand held mixture until it’s soft and creamy. Add next three ingredients and mix thoroughly on medium speed. Add 2 cups powdered sugar. Mix on low and then increase to medium high until well-combined. Add another 1.5 cups of sugar and mix well. You may need to add more sugar or more cream to get a smooth spreadable texture. If you want a deeper orange flavor, add a few more drops of orange extract.
Divide into three bowls and color one bowl blue, one pink, and one purple. Or use the color combo of your choice.
Noah explains that he made the lemon candy horns himself, wowing everyone. Unfortunately, this isn’t something I’ve tried, but I do know what Noah would have done so I’m going to tell you what you could do to try it out. If you want to go simpler, you can buy unicorn horn cupcake toppers online or at stores like Michael’s and Wal-mart.
Start by making butter mints but substitute lemon extract for the mint extract. Here’s a recipe.
When you shape the candy, make it into the shape of a horn by twisting it rather than creating the shapes suggested in the recipe.
Noah doesn’t mention how he made the ears, but they can be made from fondant, purchased premade (try Etsy, Michaels, or a party shop), or made from marshmallows like in this recipe.
Noah decorates them with edible golden glitter and silver stars. I have both those topping and purchased them at Michaels. I’m sure you can get them anywhere that sells baking decorations.
I’ve got more unicorn cupcake inspiration on my Anticipation Series Pinterest board.

I’m so excited to bring you Anticipating Rejection, the next book in the Anticipation series. This is Noah and Del’s story and it’s actually the first one that came to me as this series developed. If you know about my love of baking, you’ll know why this one is extra special to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Here’s a little more about the story:
Del is now a single dad, and for the sake of his young daughter, he’s moving back to his parents’ ranch. Returning to Anticipation means seeing Noah again—the man who was his best friend and then so much more. Del enjoyed surrendering control to Noah, but fear of what their relationship would mean sent him running. Will Noah even speak to him again, much less give him a second chance?
Noah has resigned himself to a quiet life improving his baking skills and running his family’s café. When his mom volunteers him to pick up Del at the airport despite an incoming blizzard, he braces himself to be stranded overnight while trying to pretend he hasn’t missed the man who broke his heart.
The moment they see each other, heat flares between them, and all Noah’s dominant urges come to life again. He wants Del as badly as he always has, but he can’t trust Del to stay around long enough for their relationship to develop. Is there any chance of a future for these two men who are both anticipating rejection?
I’m currently working on Book 3, Anticipating Temptation and plan to release it in late July or early August.

I’m not a typical omega. I like control, and I’d rather take than be taken.
After years of fantasizing, I finally find an alpha who will submit to all my desires. Our connection is beyond intense. My wolf says we’re fated for each other, but I know better.
Even if a test strip says I’m pregnant, I don’t want a mate. No matter how submissive he may appear, I won’t link myself to an alpha.
I’ll never live up to what my pack thinks an alpha should be.
I don’t want to order omegas and betas around. In fact, I’d prefer to hand over the reins and enjoy the bliss of surrender.
I jump at the chance when a dominant omega asks me to share his heat. Once I get a taste of him, I know a few days together won’t be enough. I want it all: a mating ceremony, kids, the future stretched before us. He wants to run as fast as he can, but I’m determined to show him I don’t want to confine him—I want to set him free.
Love Someone Like Me is Book 4 of the Trillium Creek series. If you haven’t started the series yet, you can find it all here.
