Body Shot

Hey everyone! You can download the first 3 chapters of my upcoming release Body Shot free! I hope you'll check it out!


The bestselling author of the Heller Brothers series stirs up a tempting cocktail of fun and seduction as a sexy SEAL-turned-bartender treats a buttoned-up scientist to a wild weekend . . . and a change of heart.

Former Navy SEAL Beck Whitcomb left a world of privilege to prove he could make his own way. Money, mansions, expensive cars—none of it could heal the loss of his older brother, or buy his parents’ love. Now, after using his trust fund to open the Conquistadors tequila bar with his brothers-in-arms, Beck has it all: good friends, fine liquor, and hot hookups. When it comes to women, commitment’s not his thing—until he gets a taste of the pretty professor who walks into his bar . . . and winds up in his bed.

Hayden Miles knows all too well that emotional decisions can lead to heartbreak, and nothing screams “bad decision” like a playboy bartender with inked biceps and a wicked smile. Still, their chemistry is off-the-charts explosive—and Hayden knows her chemistry. For once, this good girl longs to let loose. But is she willing to risk the pain to quench her thirst? With the promise of more on the table, Hayden’s eager to believe . . . before she misses her shot.

Today I thought I’d share some information about Kobo for those of you who may not be familiar with it. This is where I buy all my books and I really like shopping there. Their search engine may not be quite as good as Amazon, but their recommendations are usually spot on for me.

If you read on your phone or a tablet, you can download their free app. I have it on my phone and my tablet, and I also read on my old Sony reader. It’s a little more work to sideload books onto my reader, but I prefer it for reading outdoors in the bright sun, so it comes to the beach and the pool with me and out on my deck. They also have ereaders which I can’t speak to from personal experience but I’ve heard great things about the Kobo Glo, and the Kobo Aura H20 is waterproof!

If you use the app or a Kobo reader, it synchronizes between devices so you can start reading on your tablet and then pick up where you left off on your pone when you’re stuck waiting at the doctor’s office.:-) It’s very user friendly. The apps are available for Android, Apple, BlackBerry 10, Kobo desktop for Windows or Mac, and Windows 8. And buying and downloading books is as easy as one click once your account is set up (okay two clicks).

Another Kobo feature is their super points, a loyalty reward program that rewards you for reading. If you’re an avid reader like I am, this is a great feature. And for $10 you can upgrade to VIP status and get discounts and more points.

As an author, Kobo is a smaller retailer for me, but it’s growing steadily. I’ve found the people at Kobo responsive and easy to deal with. I hope you’ll check out Kobo’s apps and books!

Release day for Shut Out!

I'm so excited for the release of Bayard Hockey book 1! Shut Out if my first new adult romance. Yes there's hockey. Yes there's sizzling heat. Yes there's a tender romance. There are also some serious themes along with some humor. I know this story is different from what I usually write and may not be for everyone, but the response has been so positive and I'm very grateful.


The Bayard College hockey team isn’t where Jacob Flass thought he’d be a season ago. He was a rising star in the Canadian junior majors, cruising toward a spot on an NHL roster—until a single disastrous night on the town brought it all crashing down. Now he’s out of options, except for playing well, studying hard, and staying away from girls. He’s not supposed to be flirting with the hottest, sweetest chick he’s ever met. But how could he possibly stay away?

Skylar Lynwood knows that Jacob is out of her league. She’s just trying to go with the flow, which isn’t easy when six foot, four inches of total hockey hunkiness is making a play for her one moment, and giving her a cold shoulder the next. Skylar’s head tells her that this rugged athlete isn’t worth her time, but herbody says something altogether different. Risking her heart for Jacob may be the craziest thing she’s ever done . . . but she refuses to let him shut her out.

ICING is now available!

Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.

Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.

The only time losing is more fun than winning is when you’re fighting temptation…

Cash Hale has been in love with his best friend’s wife forever. Now Callie and Beau are divorced, but she’s still way off limits. Cash can never betray his friendship with Beau.

Callie Sutherland is starting over. The end of her marriage was just one more way she failed to lived up to her wealthy family’s expectations, so from now on she’s not even going to try. All her life she tried to do what her family wanted, seeking approval and attention from parents who were too busy to care. Now she’s going to live her life the way she wants. And she wants Cash.

Cash and Beau aren’t just friends, they’re business partners, and the drop in the price of oil has hurt the economy and their business. They need this big project for Sutherland Industries. Not only is Cash risking his friendship to be with Callie, he’s risking their business. But Callie is hotter than a firecracker on the Fourth of July, sweeter than the cakes she loves to bake, and impossible to resist. He’s screwed…

Here's a little excerpt from Screwed...

Cash pulled out a chair and sat. “I saw you come out here just as I walked in. You okay, darlin’?”
“I’m fine.”
“It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to?”
“I’m not crying.”
He lifted on eyebrow.
She swiped her fingertips beneath one eye. “Okay, just feeling a bit blue. Not really in a mood to celebrate.” She grimaced in an attempt to smile.
After a short silence, Cash said, “Do you still love him, Callie?”
“No.” She shook her head. “To be honest, I was thinking earlier that I’m not so sure I ever did love him.”
“Course you did.”
She smiled. “Yeah, I guess I did, sort of. I don’t know. But over the last year…I’ve done a lot of thinking about stuff.”
“While you were in France. And Italy. And Greece.”
“Yeah.” She traced her index finger over the wicker arm of the chair. “And since I’ve been back too. I think I’m going to get a tattoo.”
“Jesus.” Cash frowned. “Are you drunk?”
“Uh…yeah. That’s what a divorce party is for, right?”
“Hell if I know.”
“My mama will freak if I get inked. Maybe I should get a piercing too.” She tapped her chin. “Where would be a good place to get pierced?”
“Make sure you go somewhere reputable and clean—”
“No, I mean on my body. You know…like, my belly button? Or my nipples?”
“Christ.” Cash rubbed his face.
“And I need a new job. I need a whole new life.”
“You are drunk.”
She laughed, feeling more at ease. “I thought we established that.”
“Uh huh.”
“I just don’t know what kind of job I want. Or what I can do.”
“I thought Manon offered you your old job back.”
“Yeah, but I’m not sure. Working in an upscale clothing boutique is just what my mother thinks I should do.” She sighed.
“I’m getting the feeling some of this is about rebelling against your parents.”
She snorted. “You make me sound like a teenager.”
“Just sayin’, darlin’.”
She sighed. “Okay, maybe it is. I just…I just…” Her throat closed up. She rubbed her nose. “I just want to be my own person. Oh fuck, I do sound like a teenager.”
“Cass. What’s going on?”
“I don’t know! This party just made me feel like a big failure.”
“You are not a failure. Your marriage ended because Beau fucked up.”
“He wouldn’t have done that if…” She swallowed.
“Don’t even say it. He fucked up. It wasn’t your fault.”
She pressed her lips together, her throat aching. “My parents wanted us to be married. They wanted me to marry a guy they approved of, and Beau was perfect. My parents have been together for thirty years.” She sucked in a shaky breath. “When I told Mama I was splitting up with Beau because he cheated on me…she told me that my daddy had had affairs with other women. And it was no big deal. You just ignored it and carried on and made everything look good.”
Cash closed his eyes, his mouth tightening, grooves deepening on his face.

I'm so thrilled that No Obligation Required is now out!

This is book 2 in my Brew Crew Series - we briefly met Mason Ward and Bailey Harris in Limited Time Offer, and Bailey's crush on her older, mysterious colleague is heating up! Turns out Mason's had his eye on the cute blonde media girl for a while, but knows he can't touch her. Only Bailey actually wants him to touch her... 

To err is human, to forgive is against his policy.

Brew Crew, Book 2

Bailey Harris is eager to move up at Huxworth Packard. Her mentor advises her to network more after hours. But that means she’ll have to reveal the reason she rushes out of the office at five o’clock on the dot—and it’s not for happy hour Cosmos.

On the other hand, more office time means more opportunities to feast her eyes on the firm’s executive creative director, the gorgeous, brilliant Mason Ward.

Mason sure has noticed the sweet, sexy media girl, but with a past that left his heart an echo chamber, his focus is on work. The occasional itch he scratches with meaningless, emotionless hook-ups. Though he’s determined to keep his hands off Bailey, he can’t resist when she makes it very clear she wants his hands on.

They’re on the same sexy page about their relationship—Bailey doesn’t have the time, and Mason doesn’t have the heart. But when meaningless sex suddenly becomes very meaningful, they find themselves in dangerous emotional waters.

Warning: This book contains a girl with a mad crush, a mad man with a mysterious past, secrets, lies, and shoes.

Bound To Do Damage by Avril Ashton - When protecting you heart is no longer an option…protect your neck.

Twenty percent of the royalties earned from each copy of The Sutherlands sold will go to help Reach Out and Read, which gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.

Doctors, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals incorporate Reach Out and Read's evidence-based, three-part model into regular pediatric checkups:

  • Trained doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of reading aloud, starting in infancy.
  • At each regular checkup from 6 months through 5 years of age, the child receives a new book to take home.
  • Many Reach Out and Read program sites create literacy-rich environments that include gently-used books for waiting room use and/or volunteer readers to model for parents the techniques of reading aloud to young children.

“As a result of this three-part intervention at the doctor's office, parents become more engaged and read to their children more often at home. The time spent reading translates into quantifiable gains: Our evidence base of 16 peer-reviewed research studies shows that during the preschool years, children served by Reach Out and Read score three to six months ahead of their non-Reach Out and Read peers on vocabulary tests. These early foundational language skills help propel children on a path of success when they enter school,” states Reach Out and Read.

The program serves nearly 4.5 million children and their families across the nation, with a special emphasis on serving those in low-income communities. In June 2014, the American Academy of Pediatrics declared literacy promotion to be an "essential component of pediatric care" for all children, referencing Reach Out and Read as an effective intervention to engage parents and prepare children to achieve their potential in school and beyond."

Ellora's Cave

I have not publicly shared my experiences with Ellora’s Cave but with events this week, and all the misinformation and rumours out there, I feel that I should do so. What I have written here is my own experience.

When I signed my first contract with EC in 2009 I was thrilled. It had been a goal of mine to be published with them. I adored my editor, I got tons of good reviews for my books, amazing exposure as a new author, and it was overall a great experience.

Late in 2009 my editor left EC, and I was very disappointed about that. But the new editor assigned to work with me was also fabulous.

In 2010, I was becoming concerned because my sales with another publisher had been growing rapidly (yay!) while my EC sales had not. On July 27, 2010 I wrote to EC and asked if there was any chance of pricing changes to EC books at third party vendors, as they were priced significantly higher than other digital books. The response was that they had too many contracts to reduce royalty rates for individual authors. (That wasn’t what I’d asked for.) I was also told that none of their Amazon books were priced above $9.99 and “Despite the publicity given to that price level, a huge proportion of the ebooks on Amazon are actually priced higher than that. And the reality of the future is that ebook prices in general are going to go up drastically.”

We all know that hasn’t happened.

In March, 2012 I submitted a book to my editor (a third book in a series) and it was accepted. I was told to send in the contract. I used the contract form I’d used previously and got an email back from Contracts saying it was an old form and I should use the new form they attached. I neglected to read through this new form before signing and sending it in. This was later a huge lesson for me.

This book was edited and released in April, 2012. My sales had continued to grow with my other publisher, especially at Amazon, and when this book released, I got numerous messages from readers asking why it wasn’t available at Amazon. It typically took a few days/weeks after release to get EC books up for sale at third party vendors, which EC said was out of their control. It was difficult to explain that to my readers, who were largely Amazon customers. I told them they could buy directly from the EC store, but I don’t know how many did. They were used to “one clicking” and having the book on their device. I was afraid this was costing me sales. I reached out again to EC, noting concerns with quick release dates that didn’t give me time to plan promotion, the fact that I didn’t get copies of my books until release day which didn’t allow me to send out ARCs to bloggers to build buzz, the fact that my books weren’t available for pre-order at Amazon, and weren’t even there on release day. They asked me to keep their response confidential so I won’t share specifics, but basically they had no plans to address these issues.

In December 2012 I wrote book 4 in this series and submitted it. It was rejected because it was “not a good fit” for them. In all honesty, I was happy about this rejection. My sales at EC were still significantly lower than my other publisher and it only made business sense to publish somewhere I would reach more readers and make more money. However, my contracts stated that they had the option of first refusal on the “next work that is a sequel or prequel to” the last book.  (I had negotiated that with an earlier contract so they didn’t have right of first refusal to any books).  I believed that I had satisfied that option of first refusal by submitting the manuscript and having it rejected, and I was free to publish it elsewhere, but I wanted to confirm this with EC so I emailed them. They pointed out that the last contract I signed actually said “ANY work that is a sequel or prequel to”. As I’d mentioned above, I’d signed that contract without completely reading it, assuming the wording I’d negotiated into previous contracts would still be there. Yes, I take full responsibility for not reading the contract, as I said, this was a good lesson. But considering that I’d previously negotiated different language and they changed it back without telling me, this left a very bad taste in my mouth.

This meant that the fifth book in the series had to be submitted to EC even though I no longer wanted to publish with them, and even though the fourth book in the series was published elsewhere. In the end, book 5 was also rejected by my editor.

At that time, I had no intention of submitting anything else to EC unless their business practices changed and my sales there picked up substantially. That was December 2012. I have not submitted anything to them since. That was a business decision based on numbers.

My concerns about EC’s business practices and financial viability escalated with missed months of royalty payments, and peaked with the layoffs of numerous editors and other staff on August 18, 2014. I was concerned that EC might not survive and I wanted the rights to my books back.

On August 23, 2014 I wrote to EC requesting to buy back the rights to six books. I wanted all my books, but I knew I likely couldn’t afford to buy the rights back to all of them. My sales were above the limit specified in my contracts that would consider them “out of print” and therefore they were ineligible for me to get my rights back that way. I received a quote that was in my opinion outrageously high. I’d done some calculations based on my past sales and the steady decline in sales at Amazon, projecting two years into the future. We were so far apart that I did not try to negotiate and I didn't pursue that.

Until February 2015. With several more months of statements and declining sales, I believed it was even more clear that their offer had not been realistic. I reiterated my original offer and they accepted it. It was a substantial amount of money, but I was willing to take that risk because those books were popular with readers, my best-selling EC books, I was so afraid of losing them if EC went under, and my calculations indicated I should be able to recoup that money. (As an aside, this did turn out to be a sound business decision.)

I still had four books with EC. In June 2015 I emailed EC that I had last received a cheque dated April 1/15 which was mailed April 6/15 (for December 2014 royalties).  I got an auto-reply.

On July 31, 2015 I had still not received any further payments, and I emailed EC to advise that my contracts state: “Publisher shall pay Author royalties in accordance with a schedule to be determine at Publisher’s discretion but in no event shall payment be made less frequently than three (3) calendar months, unless Author requests in writing a longer payment schedule.”  Therefore Ellora’s Cave Publishing was in breach of their contracts with me and I requested the rights to all books be reverted to me for this reason.

Their response was: “Breach of clause 16 regarding royalties payments (or any other clause) does not void the contract nor revert book rights to you. When a contract is breached, the party claiming breach has the option of waiting for the other party to correct the situation or may pursue legal action to gain correction of the situation. In such case, the court would typically set a deadline by which time the situation must be corrected (“cured”), and if not corrected the court would decide on further action.

In other words, my options were to wait for my royalties…or sue them.

After a couple of emails with Royalties at EC, it was determined I had in fact been paid for January 2015 royalties, but nonetheless the cheque was dated May 1, 2015 and it had still been longer than three months since I’d received a payment.

August 3, 2015 I contacted RWA to see if they could assist with this. On September 3, 2015, I was told that RWA had e-mailed Ellora’s Cave CEO, Patty Marks. The e-mail included a notice of violation of RWA’s Code of Ethics for Industry Professionals along with the expected remedy for a satisfactory resolution, which is to pay authors all earnings to date and/or revert the rights to titles if Ellora’s Cave is unable to pay authors for royalties earned.

On October 9, 2015 I received a cheque from EC for February royalties. The cheque was dated September 30, 2015. That was five months after the last cheque I received. That is the last cheque I have received from them as of today December 11/15.

My email communications from EC have always been polite and professional.

I have not been public about my experiences with EC for a variety of reasons. Yes, fear of speaking out is one of them. Fear of being sued and incurring huge legal expenses, fear of public attack, fear of reprisals such as never getting paid or getting my rights back. Another reason was that deep down inside, I still hoped that EC would turn things around and become the profitable, influential publisher it once was and that my books would start selling and I’d want to publish with them again. I have not asked people not to buy my books. I’m not trying to spread rumours. These facts are all taken from the email correspondence and statements I have kept, and can be verified. I think these facts are important for people to know.

ON SALE! Limited Time Offer

Limited Time Offer is on sale for just .99! If you haven't checked it out, now's your chance. Levi is one of my favourite heroes. :-)


Sex may sell, but their deal doesn’t include love…

Brew Crew, Book 1

Account Director Sloane Granderson has been given her orders by the CEO—tone down the antics of the “Brew Crew”, the guys at Huxworth Packard Advertising who work on their biggest account. Sure, they’re all puffed up, strutting egos, but they’re also the best and brightest creatives in Chicago. Including the newest recruit, disturbingly attractive Levi Wolcott.

Award-winning copywriter Levi is pumped to have been headhunted to Huxworth Packard to work on the beer account. But he’s not off to a good start when he and Sloane first meet in an embarrassing encounter in a hotel hall, and the Brew Crew’s merciless new-guy hazing doesn’t improve his shaky first impression. Even worse, Levi can’t ignore the intense attraction he has to Sloane.

Despite their mutual “hell no” when it comes to love, a moment of weakness makes Sloane and Levi believe business and pleasure can be kept separate, and maybe a little harmless sex isn’t that dangerous.

Or maybe it’s as harmless as a bomb with a lit fuse…

Warning: This book contains a hero with an award-winning, panty-melting vocabulary intent on the hard sell, and a take-charge businesswoman who doesn’t mind giving up control in the bedroom…and thinks panties are overrated, anyway.
