Second Skin is out now!

That’s right! Second Skin has been officially released into the wild. As usual, I’m a mix between proud and anxious and… hungry? Huh. Anyway, though this is the second book I’ve had published, it’s the first I wrote. I’m proud to say that I took a lot of chances with the plot and the concept, and I think it works.  I’ll let you be the judge. :D

Shane Kalman has looked forward to exchanging military life for a civvy job where he could freely be out of the closet, but the position he lands is nothing like he imagined.

He didn’t plan to work undercover for a corrupt detective agency, much less gathering dirt on the city’s most dangerous crime boss. And he sure as heck didn’t expect to have his mind temporarily switched with a tabby cat in order to do it.

His fellow agent, Jamison Rees, is a charmer and sometimes a German shepherd, but Shane doesn’t need animal instincts to know that he’s hiding something. When the job goes south and Shane’s brother becomes a target for the crime boss’s wrath, all evidence points to a mole in the detective agency. A dog may be man’s best friend, but is he a cat’s? Can Shane trust Jamison at all?

Good NaNo news everyone!

Thanks to this year’s NaNoWriMo, I’ve finished the first draft of my still untitled dragon shifter story. I have several titles in mind, none of the especially good, so I’ll probably post a poll later and let the power of the crowd decide. Anyway, it’s going to be a long novel — the current estimate is at 65-70k  — and I swear it’s as much of a love letter to Yosemite as a love story between the two characters.

Arrest Me Not is at 15k and rising. Untitled Dragon Shifter took over my head for most of NaNoWriMo, but Grant’s story is coming along. Unless a promising subplot hits me, it’ll probably end up around 35k, which is a little shorter than Touch Me Not. But hey, it’ll be less expensive too. :)

In other, OTHER great news, Second Skin’s awesome cover will be debuting tomorrow. Stay tuned….

She writes smokin’ sex scenes, too….

The novel is called “Shoes and Ties” and Loose Id is the publisher. This is Jena Wade’s first full-length effort. The sequel is “Lumbar and Law,” and if you like sassy and sweet love stories, Ashten and Jesse have just the story to tell you. :)

What was the first Romance novel that you read? Did you love it or hate it?

I don’t recall the name… but it was when I was in middle school – My sister had acquired a bunch of used Harlequin romances from a garage sale.
I picked up one of them and started reading.
I loved it at the time, but gawd, if I read it now I’d probably hate it!
The rest is history, as they say, since then I have read soooo many different romance novels, from so many different genres.

What was the first M/M Romance novel that you read?

Oh…
