Just a heads up that Jaguar’s Rule is featured in the CAPTURED boxed set that released yesterday. If you haven’t had a chance to catch this award-winning novella, this is a great chance to get it, plus eight other stories, for A DOLLAR.
NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHORS

CAPTURED is a steamy collection from today’s hottest authors featuring 9 sexy bad boys trying to capture your heart, every way they know how. New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Opal Carew, Cathryn Fox, Eve Langlais, T. J. Michaels, Sharon Page, S.E. Smith, and Pepper Winters, along with Teresa Morgan and Mandy Rosko bring you nine tales of sensual seduction featuring alpha male heroes determined to have their way, and willing to do anything to get it, even if that means a little seductive persuasion…
We’ve included a real mix of stories, from light & funny to dark & sinister, contemporary to paranormal.
DEBT OF HONOR by Opal Carew
Held captive by a domineering sheikh… and made to pay for a crime she did not commit
YOURS TO TAKE by Cathryn Fox
Revenge takes on a sexy twist when a powerhouse lawyer is stripped of her control by the handsome multi-millionaire she once took down in the courtroom.
ACCIDENTAL ABDUCTION by Eve Langlais
Fall in love? Never! An alien assassin turned pirate has no use for an emotion he can’t sell, but that doesn’t stop him from falling for the human he captures.
JAGUAR’S RULE by T. J. Michaels
After an irresistible night of passion with Reya, Aaron James longs to hold her close forever. Little does he know that the tall, sleek beauty has a carnal secret–and he’s the one who needs protection.
HANDCUFFED TO THE SHEIKH by Teresa Morgan
The last thing Maxine Foss ever expected was to be handcuffed to a sexy, but crazy, guy who claims he’s an Arabian prince… and is determined to seduce her. Best. Abduction. Ever.
FAST AND MINE by Sharon Page
College student Claire gets lessons in seduction from sexy, hot street bike racer, Sawyer. But when she’s kidnapped by his psychotic sponsor to force him to race, can Sawyer save her and win her heart?
BURNS LIKE FIRE by Mandy Rosko
Jack Marilla is out for revenge for the deaths of his family, and the burn scars that cover his body. To get it, he has to hunt down the woman he used to love, the paranormal fire starter who set his house ablaze with him, and his family, locked inside of it. When he catches her, however, he faces his biggest challenge yet. To not believe her when she claims to be innocent, or fall for her seduction.
DEBT INHERITANCE by Pepper Winters
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her–nothing is out of bounds–she has to obey. There are no rules. Only payments.
CHOOSING RILEY by S. E. Smith
Things take a turn for the worse when Riley St. Claire is kidnapped by aliens and forced to choose a mate. The problem is, it would have been better, and safer, for the aliens if they had left Riley back on Earth.

In case you don’t subscribe, I’d like to share this recipe that was in my recent newsletter (view entire newsletter HERE). If I were to link this to any of my books, I’d say this is something that Shinju in Hatsept Heat, Vampire Council of Ethics Bk 3, would make. She’s a professional and classically trained chef who dreams of one day having her own restaurant. She ends up revamping (pun intended ;D) the kitchens at the Northern Territory Headquarters of the Vampire Council in Montana…after becoming a Serati warrior, of course. And yes, she cooks for her man in the book. It makes for some interesting, uh, dessert.
I’m not a big raspberry fan, but this looks so good I want to see if I can get my daughter (she’s a pastry chef) to make this. Enjoy!
Heavenly Chocolate Raspberry Bundt
1 cup melted butter
2 cups sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Grease a bundt or tube pan.
- Make filling by creaming together, cream cheese with sugar and vanilla.
- Mix in chocolate chips and set aside.
- For cake, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
- Beat eggs and gradually add the sugar and beat until the mixture is thick and pale yellow.
- Beat in melted butter, then milk, water and vanilla.
- Gradually add in the flour mixture and mix well.
- Spread half the batter into the prepared pan.
- Drop spoonfuls of the cream cheese filling evenly over the batter.
- Sprinkle raspberries over the top.
- Cover with remaining batter.
- Bake at 375 degrees for about 1 1/4 hours.

The boxed set, Mastered, has been released to much fanfare! If you haven’t already read my book in that set, here’s a bit of a teaser for you.
A Twilight Teahouse Story
by T.J. Michaels

“Yes, I know I shouldn’t have looked but—”
“There’s a ‘but’ in there somewhere? Really, woman?”
She kept her mouth shut. Smartest thing she’d done all day.
“You’re well aware that this man is a textbook sociopath, yes?”
“Solie, I asked you a question.” The words were spoken quietly, but there was no way in hell she missed the steel behind them.
“Yes, I’m aware he’s a sociopath,” she grumbled.
“And I’ve shared my experiences with you about people who have this disorder, which lines up with your own research. It’s to be expected for a sociopath to pull some kind of shenanigan or another, right?”
She should write a song called, “Yet another sigh.” Bleh. Instead, she growled out a plain old, “Yes.”
“I’m not even going to ask you what you were thinking, Solie, but I will say that I’m sure you know better.”
Oh here we go.
“Are you still going to the vendor fair at the C.S.P. tomorrow?” he asked.
That was a no brainer. The vendor fair at the Community for Sex Positivity was a twice a year event that she and her other best friend, MacKenzie, didn’t miss. Many of the vendors were different each time, so there was always something cool and unique to be had.
“Yep, I’m going to the fair. Mac promised my niece that we’d get some new toys for her play bag.”
“Okay. So, when I see you tomorrow I’m going to spank your ass for doing what you know you shouldn’t have, which was perv that guy’s profile. Agreed?”
Damn. She could simply say no. Burton wouldn’t do anything without her consent. But she was in the wrong. There were no two ways about it. Not only had she connected the sociopathic dots when her relationship with Marcais began to head south, but Burt had confirmed her suspicion because he’d had plenty of experience with people like her former dude.
To make matters worse, Solie had reached out to Marcais’ ex-wife to learn exactly what she was dealing with. That woman, who’d turned out to be a fabulous person, had also told her to expect the man to do something to re-establish communication with her. And if he couldn’t do that, he would pull a mind fuck.
So yep, Solie had known the moment she’d read his message that Marcais wouldn’t have reached out to her for the hell of it. He had a purpose, always. For someone like him it wasn’t about love. It was about winning. About control.
In the end, Solie had royally worked herself into a tizzy behind something that could have been avoided. All she’d had to do was exercise a little restraint and stop long enough to think about what she was doing. Basically, she could have simply ignored he who should not be named. But nooo-ho-ho-ho. She just had to go and be nosy. Just had to see what Marcais was pitching when she knew she shouldn’t.
And now, she’d tattled on herself to Burton? Forehead, meet desk. Yeah. That.
“Solie? I asked if you agree to the punishment.”
Ugh. Burt knew she was so not an exhibitionist, regardless of her love of kink. So public spanking equaled absolute punishment in her book. Hell, she totally had this coming.
“Yes. I agree.”
“And I’ll spank your ass every time you perv his Kinkfest profile. Agreed?”
“Fine,” she snarled into the phone.
“In fact, I’m driving down to Seattle just for you, darlin.”
“Yay. I feel so special.” The words were dead pan. Burton’s responding laughter lifted her mood a bit.
Then he said, “But you are special, Solie. Just because a pathological liar and a serial cheater didn’t treat you right, doesn’t mean you deserved it. Woman, you should be treated like the amazing catch that you are. You’re a queen bee and you know it.”
She smiled a bit brighter. But still…
