And The Winner is…

First of all, my sincere apologies for the delay in announcing the Winner of The Long and Short Reviews’s 2017 Holiday Blogfest. The horrid flu that’s hurdling across North America felled me, not once, but twice. Trust me, if you haven’t had a flu shot – go out and get one pronto! 

Congratulations to ELF, who won a FREE copy of Sinner!!!

But, since I’ve been so remiss, ELF, not only will you receive Sinner, but you’re getting the ENTIRE boxed set of THE HADES SQUAD series!!! 

In addition to SINNER, you’re receiving; LUCIFER, DEVIL, DEMON, & SATAN!

I hope this makes up for my unforgivable tardiness.

Since I managed to sleep through the new year, and then had to work like a dog to catch up with almost two weeks of missed work, I’d also like to wish everyone a HAPPY 2018!

Please, dear God, make it a gazillion percent better than 2017!

The best thing that happened to me last year was the engagement of my young’un to his girlfriend (who I told very early in their relationship after perhaps too much wine – you’re the perfect daughter-in-law…trust me I got reamed for that remark). 



The Destroyer, #4 in the Viking Warriors Series, is Available!

Fantastic News!!! The Destroyer is now available for purchase at Amazon and other retailers. Click on the cover to go to the Amazon buy link:

Here’s the blurb:
To Viking warrior Magnus, marriage is naught but a contract, a bargain between a man and a woman for land and title. Lust, love—he scorns such notions as weak and unmanly. But three days before he’s to wed a highland noblewoman, he falls into the maelstrom of a maid’s startled eyes. Their passionate tryst has him rethinking his notions, and he struggles to find a way to keep the beguiling Deidra while honoring the marriage contract he’s arranged with the father of his betrothed.

Deidra cannot take a walk in the forest without finding a wounded dove. Devoted to her menagerie of injured bears, peacocks, and wolves, she vows to disobey her da when he betroths her to the Norse warrior known as the Destroyer. Until, disguised as a maid, she’s rescued from a would-be rapist by the Destroyer himself. How can any call him ugly or cruel? For he treats her as if she is made of spun glass and teaches her the magikal pleasures of the flesh.

But Magnus is furious when he learns the woman he’s fallen so deeply for is none other than his betrothed. For there’s nothing he despises more than a deceitful female…except, perhaps, two of them…

The Destroyer is now a full-length novel and is more than double the total word count of the former novella. New characters, new action and intrigue, and a ton more hot romance!!!

Here’s my fervent Friday request for you—go forth, buy, read,and if you enjoy, please, please, please—leave a review. Reviews make all the difference in the world.

Have a marvelous weekend.



My Alpha & Spatial Challenges!

I’m direction challenged. Spatially too. All my friends know never to ask me whether turn left or right. Instead they say— which hand? You can imagine how difficult it was for me to write a book situated on two sets of back-to-back neighborhood alcoves. I  kept getting so confused  while writing the action scenes for My Alpha that I eventually had to draw the two streets and the main road connecting them. Here’s what I came up with;

Alpha map


Guess I should also add, I’m drawing challenged too :).

My Alpha, book #2 in the White Wolf Pack series,  was released yesterday and should now be available at all major book sellers.

Here’s the sexy cover and the blurb;


Susie White wants no picket fences, no alpha, and no cubs. White wolf woman she may be, but no pack for her, no sireee. Alpha me not, that’s her motto. In all caps.

Half-breed wolf Joe Huroq’s not looking for a mate. His job in international security’s too dangerous and too erratic for relationships. Stop and go screwing, that’s his motto—hot and heavy between missions. Then he glimpses his new neighbor tanning nude and the situation explodes. Literally. Susie’s house is consumed by fire.

What’s Joe to do but offer Susie sanctuary?

Susie can’t resist the temptation of hunky bad-ass Joe. She suggests a friends with benefits arrangement, which he accepts with remarkable alacrity. The sex is frantic, steaming, and non-stop. Neither one can keep their hands off the other. Then Joe’s best friend’s son is kidnapped on the way home from school, the fire’s deemed arson, and two other kids go missing. A serial killer’s on the loose, and he has Susie in his sights. Susie refuses to accept Joe’s mate claim. Can he keep her safe when she won’t obey a single order?

Have a fabulous Friday!




Prymal Lust is a TOP PICK at The Romance Reviews!

Prymal_Lust-Jianne_Carlo-200x320What a great start(but late) start to my week. Here’s a TOP PICK 5 STAR review of Prymal Lust from The Romance Reviews!!!

Book Reviewed by Isabelle(reviewer)

They are alpha males, wolf-shifters and navy Seals. They are hot, dangerous and ready to love the-only-one. PRYMAL LUST is a steamy ride full of pheromones and adrenaline.

Tania is a Wylfen wolf, which means she is an aristocrat and belong to the top tier of the wolves world. However, her feelings lately are the same of every other wolf on the planet: she needs to get down, sweaty and dirty on a bed with a willing male; anyone but a wolf will do.

Axe is on a mission; he can’t have any distraction right now. Of course he has no idea that his hormones and the mating call will show up when he is in the middle of an explosive situation.

Can their mating works? They only have to bring down a corrupted government, battle their instincts against century-old-prejudice and begin a new species.

Ms. Carlo creates another promising paranormal series, bringing fresh ideas in a very creative well-crafted plot.

The characters are amazing, with a kick-ass heroine and a to-die-for hero. Really, Axe is the alpha of the alphas. He is dominant when he must be, but he is comfortable enough with himself to let his female shine.

The passionate scenes are well-described without being excessive, and they permeate the story without taking away from the plot’s flow.

Wow, have I mentioned this book is packed with action and heat? It took me two hours to devour the story and I’ve finished without knowing who do I want to meet next. Really there are so many amazing secondary characters that I don’t know which one is my favorite. All I know is that I’m ready to read the next Prymal today!
