Update on Chayton's book

Yesterday, I finished writing Chayton's book. It'll take me a few days to edit, then off it goes to my other editors. Hoping to have a pre-order date soon!

All the best,
Danielle

Teaser from Chayton's upcoming book!

Here's a teaser from Chayton's book, presented with the usual disclaimers:  no editing has been done, so overlook any glitches or errors.  :)

* * *

What if I told you that I had no idea who Anton Bertini is, and that I had nothing to do with...whatever you're involved in? What if I could prove it?”
Surprised, Kate frowned. He looked and sounded quite sincere. Could she have the wrong person? Had she been totally mistaken? Then why had he crept through the suite and how had he known just where to find her?
How are you going to prove it?”
Have you ever heard of Luxe Resorts?”
She scoffed and nearly announced she was a member. The exclusive Resorts, spanning the globe, were one of her favorite getaways. “Of course I've heard of them. Everyone on God's green earth has.”
His mouth tipped into a tight smile. “Who owns and operates them?”
Are you ever going to get to the point?” she asked with no small amount of irritation.
Just answer the question.”
The Black family.”
That's right. Will you hold still for a moment if I release you?”
Yes.” Kate would do anything to put some space between them.
He hesitated, searching her eyes again. Then he released her hands but didn't move his body. Reaching into a back pocket, he withdrew a leather wallet and produced a Montana driver's license with his picture clearly on the front. Along with his name.
Chayton Black.
You don't expect me to believe you're related to the Black family that owns the Luxe Resorts, do you?” Being a member, Kate thought she recalled literature somewhere that had Chayton's name on it. A niggling feeling remained, even after he slid the identification away and re-pocketed the wallet. Perhaps she'd heard it in the elite circles she frequented right up until her untimely disappearance from society.
We can even look it up on the internet. Yes, I'm one of the heirs to the empire. Which means you should realize that I can't be whoever you think I am, and if I step away, you won't take a swing or stab me with your mascara wand.”
That's brilliant. Provoke me while I'm angry, and there's no telling what I might do.” Bristling from the entire confrontation, Kate stared at Chayton, tempted to push against his chest with her hands. He stood somewhere just over six-feet, and though lean, seemed immovable unless he wanted to move.
Like an annoyed little badger, hm? Are you going to grace me with your name in return, or are you going to force me to backtrack using Anton Bertini?” he asked.
You wouldn't dare.” Kate didn't want him doing any such thing.
Not only would I dare, I plan on it. Save us both the time and energy.”
My name, obviously, is Penelope.” She flicked the name tag on the uniform.
Penelope what?”

Unprepared to come up with a last name, she floundered. Then said, “Penelope Smith.”

I'll announce a release date soon!

Ahsan's book is now live on Amazon, B&N and iTunes!

The second book in the Royal Elite series is now live on Amazon!  Soon to be live at all the other sites (B&N, iTUnes, Kobo).  Really excited to have this book published.  :)

The Royal Elite: Ahsan (Amazon)

The Royal Elite: Ahsan (B&N)

Ahsan on iTunes


Here's the description:

Sheikh Ahsan Afshar is a rogue of the highest order, prone to scandal, seduction and womanizing. He's a devilish yet complicated creature with an over-sized ego and more arrogance than he knows what to do with. When fate brings him face to face with Miss Sessily Pavel, he finds himself issuing a challenge that brings her into his home—and into his life.


Sessily Pavel has a secret. A secret involving Sheikh Ahsan Afshar. One so explosive it could endanger her life. Challenged to a race, she enters Ahsan's world, only to discover he's not the man she thought he was. Fighting off red-hot chemistry and undeniable attraction, she sets herself on task—one that threatens to unravel her secrets and expose her for the liar she is. The only question is whether he'll ever forgive her, and whether she can forgive herself.



Happy Valentine's Day!

Update

Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a great weekend. First: thanks to everyone who navigated over to the new FB page!  Second: I know I promised print copies of the Royals before Christmas, but there's a good reason for the delay that I'll be announcing in another two weeks or so. Really cool stuff! Also, I'm about halfway through Ahsan's story. It's coming right along, and I plan to keep up the hectic writing pace so that I can perhaps get it out sooner than I first planned. As long as there are no big story glitches, I should be ready to send to the editors by the first or second week of February. I'll update as I know more!

p.s. To those who ordered a signed print copy, thank you! I'm shipping out another batch on Monday.

xoxo,
Danielle

The Royal Elite: Mattias, is now live on Amazon!

The first book in my newest series is now live on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!  Kobo and iTunes should go live any time.  I'll post links here as soon as they're available.

The Royal Elite: Mattias

The Royal Elite: Mattias (Barnes and Noble)

Description:

The Royal Elite

A band of brothers from different nations, different cultures, all bound by one covenant: to protect their own. Secretive, cunning and deadly, they fight for the innocent who have become targets in a society obsessed with power, money and greed. It isn't just a moral code that drives the brothers, but the thrill of danger they can't find anywhere else.

Meet the men who risk everything, even their own lives, and the women who capture their hearts.

* * * *

Mattias Ahtissari, Prince of Latvala, discovers that quirky, socially awkward Alannah Astbury has been targeted for murder. Trying to protect the sharp-tongued woman proves more of a challenge than he can believe. Tension and conflict erupt, leaving the pair at odds while the members of the Royal Elite seek answers into the threats against her. A deeper, more sinister secret lurks behind the scenes, one that Mattias never sees coming—until it's too late.


Saving Alannah will take every ounce of skill and training Mattias possesses.



All the best,
Danielle

News and Updates

It's been a crazy, crazy two months. We moved, which just about sucked the life right out of me, but we're settled finally and I've been taking a scalpel to Mattias's story. It needed some revising, and I like the end result much better. I finished the revision today, so now it just needs line editing and a final read-through before I publish. I'm excited to release this book into the wild!  Shortly, I should know more about what day it might go live on Amazon, B&N and Kobo.  iTunes is always late, unfortunately, although I continue to hope they speed the drafts through for approval in record time. I'll post again when I'm closer to launch.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and kind comments!

All the best,
Danielle

Huge sale on the Society Collection!

In an effort to promote this series, I'm making the new Collection .99 for a very limited time!  This is all three books, in their entirety, for less than a buck.  The usual cost is $11.97 for all three.

Get it at:

Barnes & Noble:  Society Collection

Amazon:  Society Collection

Kobo: Society Collection

This Collection is not yet on iTunes.

Here's the description:

Psychics, horrific visions of the future, murder, betrayal and unexpected love. They are all part of a days work for ex-CIA agent turned detective, Mahayla Breland. Hired to find a man, who is an expert at vanishing off the grid, Mahayla could never foresee the lengths the Society of the Nines would go to to ensure his death. Or the lengths she would go to protect Elliott and their growing love affair.

On the run from a sinister presence from Elliott's past and even her own father and former lover from the CIA, it will take all of Mahayla's skill, wit and determination to keep them alive and change their future away from the dark premonitions foretold by the Society.


Enjoy!

Here's the promised information on what's coming up next. Mattias's book will be just one of several in the series (and the first to be released). I'm pretty excited about this and expect to launch Mattias's book within the next 8-9 weeks. Without further ado!

. . .

A band of brothers from different nations, different cultures, all bound by one covenant: to protect their own. Secretive, cunning and deadly, they fight for the innocent who have become targets in a society obsessed with power, money and greed. It isn't just a moral code that drives the brothers, but the thrill of danger they can't find anywhere else.

Meet the men who risk everything, even their own lives, and the women who capture their hearts.
