The next Pryde Ranch Shifters book…

Is on its way!

It’s been turned in to the editor and will be included in a holiday boxed set. I’ll give you details as I received them, and as soon as I have a release date and cover, I’ll be sure to share.

In the meantime, the latest Pryde Ranch Shifters book, Shiftin’ Sassy, is available from Amazon KindleWorlds.

Tally ho!


Seafood Cravings

The other day I tweeted about a certain need I had. And it was a need that hit me hard. I mean, I was almost shaking with anticipation at the thought of getting this particular thing.

I’m talking about…LOBSTER!

Yes, it’s true that I’m having a forty-year affair with seafood, and lobster is one of my favorites. There are only two things that beat out a good steamed lobster, drenched in real butter — sashimi and king crab.

So what does this have to do with books? From one foodie to another, not a darn thing! However, my Twilight Teahouse series does have an amazing sushi chef named Landon. You can read his story in Luscious, Twilight Teahouse Book Two.

Here’s the book cover, followed by an easy recipe that my fellow lobster-lovers will enjoy!

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 lemon, juiced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 stalk finely chopped celery
1 finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
3 lobster tails cooked (about 1 pound lobster meat), chopped
Lemon slices & dry rub, for garnish
Lobster SaladDirections
1) Combine mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper, celery, shallot, tarragon and chives in a bowl.
2) Add lobster meat to mayonnaise sauce and combine.
3) Rub the rim of 4 martini glasses with a lemon. Dip the rim in some dry rub. Divide the lobster salad between the 4 glasses. Garnish with dry rub and lemon slices.

Caramel Kisses

Workaholic, Sydni Cannes, should have known better than to step away from the job. Going out for a single evening of fun for this Executive Vice President has ended up as a night spent in damn jail!

Drew is aware that the sexy, sultry and brilliant Sydni could’t care less about getting involved with him. But along comes the perfect opportunity to prove that she needs him just as much as he needs her. All he has to do is get her out of jail…and keep himself free in the bargain.

Their desire scorches them. The connection, true and immediate.

But what will they do about the bad guy determined to set them both up? Solve the mystery, of course…and a little well-executed, hot-as-hell sex wouldn’t hurt either.

Warning: This book contains sexy beach fun, good girls and bad boys you’ll love to tie up and tie down. Previously published by Ellora’s Cave.

Downton Abbey?

I must admit that I’d never watched Downton Abbey while it was on television. But thanks to Amazon and Netflix, I decided to sit down and take a peek at what all the fuss was about.

Having traveled internationally and spent time reading historical romance, I expected something a bit more stuffy and staid. But I’m finding it witty and intriguing!

I’ve just started on Season 2 and I do believe I’m in love…but time will tell.

It’s Here!

It’s here!
by Eliza Gayle!
featuring SHIFTIN’ SASSY by T.J. Michaels

Click to purchase on Amazon –> amazon2

I am thrilled to be selected as one of the authors Amazon’s Kindle Worlds launch for Eliza Gayle’s fabulous Southern Shifters series. August 11, 2015, fourteen authors will have our stories, all written in Eliza’s shifter world, hit the stage all at the same time. So go get ’em!

My book is called Shiftin’ Sassy. The heroine, Derria Pryde (a crossover from the Pryde Ranch Shifters) meets the oh-so-fun guys from Eliza’s books. Strap in, it’s time for takeoff!

Derria, like her cousins at Pryde Ranch, is trained to take down the worst shifters imaginable. After chasing her bounty into the Tail of the Dragon, she discovers that this mountain gem is shifter central where they’ve managed to keep themselves off the world’s radar…until now.

Lakota Phillips keeps his status as a S.W.A.T. agent under wraps. No one from Clan Gunn in the Dragon knows what he does when he’s away from this place. But when a fellow agent shows up for reasons that make sense to no one, what is he to do?

But that may have to wait. Kerr Blackwood, the rogue they’re searching for, is a shifter from Lakota’s neck of the woods. And suddenly, Derria’s hunt doesn’t quite pass the smell test.

Warning: This book contains hot alphas, mating heat and women who stroke their guns. Bring it on, baby!

Thank you bunches!

To all of you who have supported the new release of the 12 Alphas 12 Months boxed set (featuring Succulent ~ A Twilight Teahouse Novel), you have my heartfelt thanks! And my goodness, check out this review left on Amazon!

“Great Set. Lots of Heat and spice. I enjoyed all the stories in the set. I wanted to read the Succulent story which had another volume to the Twilight Teahouse series.

  • Book 1 we met Solee and Burton.
  • Book 2 we met Mackenzie and Landon.
  • Book 3 we meet Madison and Kinson. I loved Madison and Kinson’s story.

    What really caught my interest is Kinson, who is determined to woo and romance his wife and he does just that…but with some serious HEAT and SPICE. But the wooing and romancing comes with at a cost.

    You have not one but two successful business’es run by two very driven people who until lately have had a successful and satisfying D/s relationship with Kuri. Kinson is a world renowed Yogi. Madsion owns and operates Twilight Teahouse, a restaurant that has some serious adult playrooms.

    Madison, Kinson and Kuri are trying to stay together but there are not enough hours in the day for all that encompasses their very busy lives. Kinson sensing that his wife Madison is about to shut down from stress, the business and from missing her travelling husband. Kinson comes home early from his latest trip to put his romance plan into motion. First, Kinson must thaw out Madison. She is in a mood from which no simple kiss and hug will do, Madison misses her husband, misses the interaction.

    Kinson comes up with special meals, massages and some serious couple time for him and Madison. He sets out to pamper her and show Madison that he does love and need her. However, in the midst of romancing Madison, Kinson has not shown any attention to their submissive, Kuri. As Madison and Kinson renew the spark in their marriage, Kuri is left out and thus seeks her own distractions.”



Possible snarf alert – if you’re drinking something, please put it down now.

Okay, here goes:
I was sitting in a cafe while on a business trip and I looked up and saw this man who LOOKED JUST LIKE CHRIS PINE!! Now, I admit I was only getting a side view, but my little heart sped up and I was thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, is Chris Pine really standing in this cafe?!!’.

Then the guy turned and fully faced my direction as he gazed at the menu. My little pitter-pattering heart came to an abrupt halt…as in stunned and in utter disbelief.

No, it was not Chris Pine. This person did resemble someone that looked like a shovel had spent time flattening his face.  Or, as one person put it, the resemblance was that of a bucket of smashed crabs!

The fabulous Chris Pine (pictured below) and NOT a bucket of smashed crabs!
