Okay, so I've been quiet the last couple of days. I assure you I didn't fall of the face of the earth. I've actually been writing *gasp*. But with that said, I've made some progress and thought I might share with you, a sneak preview of some of the books, which will be coming out from me through out this year from my publisher Excessica. So enjoy the sneak peak. And tell me...how many books do you think are too many for a series? We will return to our regularly scheduled program tomorrow.
Gabriel’s Light (Coming March 2013)
Book 7 in Doms of Chicago
Gabriel Poulanos is only half the man he was since his beloved sub, Sara, died in a senseless mugging. Now he goes through life in a daze which worries not only his closest friends at Olivia’s but also its newest member, Zhenya. He resists every matchmaking attempt and schemes his friends come up with, until the early spring day when a surprise visit by a group of submissives leads to dragging him kicking and screaming out of his self-imposed exile.
Pregnant with her dead husband’s baby, Zhenya has experienced loss and it hurts her to see a man as vibrant as Gabriel wasting away. Then her new friends offer to throw her a baby shower, she agrees, but only if it is at Poulanos, Gabriel’s family restaurant. She never expects for her water to break nor the bad weather which keeps her confined, with not only a fainting submissive, but two over-bearing Doms and the grumpy restaurant owner. But that’s the least of her problems. Because once she gives birth to her daughter, her dead husband’s family demands she relinquish her.
At least until Gabriel finds out. If there’s one thing that this grieving Dom understands is a submissive’s right to choose her own path.

Ever since the Native American switch entered his and Master Rai’s home, Bryan’s been distracted and out of sorts. But it’s not just because he finds the man attractive, or that his Master was paying Bryan any less attention with their guest there. It’s his unreasonable fear that Hark is here for more than just a place to stay. No, he just can’t get over the feeling that Hark has an ulterior motive: to make a play for Bryan’s Master. When the fear becomes reality, Bryan panics.
Diachi is a man of many secrets, and Hark happens to be one of his darkest. As his first submissive, Hark was partially responsible for molding Diachi into the Dom he’s become. But when he found himself unable to give Hark what he needed, Diachi had uncollared him, letting the man he loved go, rather than share him. Now Hark is back, scarred and darker than Diachi could ever remember him being. While in love with Bryan, Diachi still can’t find the strength to turn Hark away. But it sets in motion a series of events which he is unprepared for, when Hark requests becoming the third member in his and Bryan’s relationship.
