A Warrior with a Grudge…
At thirty-one Valan Erikson is a fierce and relentless warrior. He's never lost a battle but he's losing the war with the mating fever raging in his body. He's accepted that his death is imminent until he's told a compatible race of females has been found. When he discovers they're Wrothian he refuses to take one as a mate until the Council threatens to strip him of his warrior status and let him die in dishonor.
A Female Who Wants to Escape Her Fate…
Lia ad-San's Wrothian sire has arranged to trade her to, Gorm ad-Jai, a man she despises. Before she can escape she's abducted by a fierce warrior. Unaware that her sire caused the deaths of the Zarronian females, including Valan's mother and twin sister, she reveals her identity and demands to be freed.
A Complication They Didn't Expect…
Enraged to be bonded to the daughter of his most hated enemy, Valan treats Lia as a prisoner rather than a beloved bondmate. When the Zarronians learn her identity they demand she be punished for her sire's war crimes. Valan realizes too late that he's endangered his mate's life. The fever they share will keep them together but only love can make them want each other.
Author’s Note: Valan’s Bondmate is an erotic romance that includes explicit sex scenes and mature language. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book. Also, my hero is an anti-hero - meaning he is flawed but has redeeming qualities…for instance, he'd fight to the death for the woman he loves. If you don’t like bad boys, then please don’t buy this book.
Sexy warriors, red-hot passion and thrills abound in this exciting sci-fi fantasy romance. The hero and heroine, Valan and Lia, are two strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers into their story and hold them hostage throughout with their sizzling chemistry and tempestuous sparks flying off the pages as they engage in the battle of the sexes. Valan may have saved Lia from a fate worse than death but to her, he isn’t exactly a hero and their relationship is a continuous battle of wills, tempers, miscommunications and lots of blazing hot and erotic scenes that inflame reader’s passions and sparks spontaneous chuckles as well causing a bit of empathic anger, hope and frustration feelings in the readers.
The plot of fast paced and full of energetic excitement as the Warriors abduct the women from an enemy clan in the hope of saving their race only they get a bit more than they bargained for since they were expecting enemies. The couple along with the other characters from this story continuously keep readers on their toes and glued to the pages with twists and turns that keep them guessing and lots of entertaining clashes of will. The author brought her characters and the world to brilliant life so it is easy for readers to picture the scenes and get to know the characters.
There is explicit and passionate scenes and mature language in the book which may offend some readers and while I wasn’t sure that I was going to like the book because I’m not crazy about the whole abduction and abductee falling for each other thing, I’m delightfully surprised to say that I quite enjoyed the story and the way that the author brought all the elements together which ensured that I want to know more about these sexy warriors and their world.

I've always loved reading and I read just about anything. I love learning and this is one of the perks I love most about writing as I get to do hours and hours of research about just about every subject under the sun. You might meet me in a class at a local university where I'll be auditing a class (no more tests or homework for me lol). Or you might run into me in a little known, out-of-the-way place on one of my road trips while I research a place for my characters to come from, run to, or survive. If you've read my books then you know I like novels with lots of laughs, a few tears, and a happy-ever-after ending.
When I'm not writing I'm having fun with my family and friends, trying new recipes, learning about gardening in containers / small spaces, and plotting my next book.
