It’s time to celebrate, because–holy crap–I won a writing contest!
To Win a Demon’s Love made first place in the paranormal romance category of the Readers’ Choice Contest of the New England Chapter of RWA. Whoop whoop!
And if that wasn’t awesome enough, the book also made it into the final round of another contest, the Carolyn Readers’ Choice Award of the North Texas Romance Writers.
So, of course, I have to celebrate this with a giveaway!
I’m raffling off one signed copy of To Win a Demon’s Love, open internationally. The giveaway will close on Monday, April 10, at 8 PM PST.

Good luck! 😀
For a while now I’ve been pondering this, and I finally decided to change the titles of my books. Why? Because I feel that the current titles–even though I like them a lot–don’t accurately reflect my writing or the subgenre of the books.
Blood, Pain, and Pleasure in particular may give the wrong impression about the novel’s content, and I hate the thought that potential readers may be turned off by the title and never get to discover Merle and Rhun’s story. That’d be a shame!
When I wrote BP&P, I came up with that title, and then I just stuck with it and published it with that name. But that was 2 years ago, and I’ve learned a TON of things about the industry, my genre, and marketing since then, and I now realize that I could have done better with naming my books.
The beauty of being an indie author is that we can pivot when we realize something is not working, or that something else may be better. I want to make sure that new readers can easily find my books and identify them as the stories they’ll love–and the new titles I chose contribute to that.
So, without further ado, here are the new and improved titles of my books:
- To Seduce a Witch’s Heart (formerly: Blood, Pain, and Pleasure, Merle and Rhun’s story)
- To Win a Demon’s Love (formerly: Blood, Breath, and Desire, Lily and Alek’s story)
- To Stir a Fae’s Passion (formerly: Blood, Need, and Temptation, Isa and Basil’s story)
- To Caress a Demon’s Soul (formerly: Blood and Shadows, Anjali and Thorne’s story)
I already have a title for book 4 as well, but I’ll keep hush hush about that one, because it contains a teeny spoiler as to whose book it’ll be. 😉
The series name will change, too, the new one being: Love and Magic.
So, long story short, don’t be alarmed if you see these new titles popping up on the retailers or on your reading device (in case of automated updates). These are not new books, just the same stories with new titles. 🙂
I hope you like the new names as much as I do!
Oh, what’s this? Could it be…? Why, yes, Basil’s book is up for preorder at all retailers! 😀

To Stir a Fae’s Passion
A Novel of Love and Magic #3
Love is the lure that could break her curse—or her heart…
Growing up among witches as a rare and powerless male descendant hasn’t been easy for Basil Murray. When he learns his true identity, he’s all too eager to claim his own magic, but the tangle of lies that shaped his past might just kill him before he unlocks the secret to his powers—and the beautiful fae whose life he saves may be at the center of it all.
Fae bounty hunter Isa’s days are numbered. The death curse she’s stalled will soon kill her, unless she ends the bloodline of the one who cursed her. And of course that person turns out to be the striking male to whom she now owes a life debt. Even worse, Basil has the nerve to unapologetically fall in love with her—and make her crave what she can never have…
Warning: Includes a hero who is as sweet as he is sexy, and may cause intense yearning and unintentional hugging of your reading device. Maybe even licking.
Now that the official announcement is out on the NEC website, I’m thrilled to let y’all know that Blood, Breath, and Desire made it into the final round of the Readers’ Choice contest of the New England Chapter of RWA! Yippiiiieee! 😀
