I’m Still Writing – Update and a wee teaser

Hi there,

I know, my poor blog has been neglected again, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy behind the scenes. As some of you know, I’ve had some health issues lately brought on by some stressful real life events; nothing major, but enough to make it difficult for me to function some days. I am fine now, but taking things a lot slower and indulging in my passion which is writing my stories.

My to-do list is huge. I have books due on every series I have going, and there are a lot of them. Many people ask when my next “such and such” book is coming out and for the most part, all I can say is “soon”. I love that I am asked because it means my wonderful readers are excited to see the next installment in a series – I only wish I could give a more definitive answer. There are characters from eight books vying for space in my brain at the moment and although I know I would get to them a lot faster if I wrote two at the same time as I have in the past, my health just won’t allow that. So I am focusing on crafting one at a time, and trying to make that story the best darn one I can.

So what is it?  Which book am I writing now? Poseidon’s story, which will be book 2 in the Gods Made Me Do It series. From those of you who read On The Brink (Cloverleah book 10) you will remember Poseidon as Nereus’s father, who basically had sex on the brain. A number of people asked if I was writing his story – they wanted to see him with a mate, and I am delivering.  You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me will be out around the middle of June and here’s a small teaser  🙂

My inspirational pic for Poseidon

Excerpt (unedited)

“Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos, stop screwing me about. I demand an audience,” Poseidon yelled as he stumbled over yet another log.

“You don’t have the right to demand anything of us.” Clotho appeared beside him, making him jump. Regaining his composure, Poseidon peered through the murky undergrowth. The sisters were always together. Sure enough, he spied Lachesis lurking up a nearby tree and Atropos appeared complete with a cauldron in front of him. A tingle of alarm ran up his spine. That cauldron could spell trouble.

“Ladies,” he said, spreading his hands. He’d put on the charm he was famous for. It worked for everyone else. “We seem to have a little problem. Somehow my life thread got caught up with that of a land creature. If I could prevail on you to just snip me free, I’d owe you a favor.”

“We don’t need any favors from you,” Atropos cackled. “In fact, I feel sorry for the poor Alpha who has to cope with your sorry ass for all eternity.”

“This wasn’t a mistake?” Poseidon’s anger burned and he forgot his earlier caution. “You deliberately set me up with a wolf shifter, despite knowing I’m the lord of the sea? How could you be so stupid? Do you know what happens when wolf shifters claim their mates? My cock won’t work for anyone else but him!”

“Then I suggest you stick close to him,” Lachesis jumped from the tree, peering into Atropos’s cauldron. “More nutmeg,” she suggested.

“You can’t do this to me,” Poseidon roared, his voice echoing around the glade like thunder. “I am a god. Men fall to the ground when they hear my name. I refuse to take a mate. You can’t force me.”

“From what we saw, there wasn’t any force involved,” Clotho laughed prettily, stepping over to join her sisters. “In fact, I got the impression you had a really good time.”

End excerpt – have a lovely weekend 🙂

Alpha and Omega series #2.5

Detective Sully Roberts spent his life living a lie but when his best friend Zander mated with Terry, Sully was thrown into a world where wolf shifters looked human and true mates were real. Of course, as a human he never expected to find a mate. Zander explained they were rare and while he dreamed of finding someone to call his own, he’d settle for getting his father off his back. In the meantime, Sully was doing his best to climb out of the closet; not easy, even with new friends by his side.

Gunnery Sergeant Quentin Thorne, Q to his friends, lived for the armed forces. After spending eight years in the Marines, he was on leave pondering his re-enlistment. Something was holding him back and it wasn’t just his wolf. Deciding to visit his brother Richard, he’d barely got off the plane, when he was assailed with a scent he hadn’t known he was waiting for.

Two career men; one bite would change everything. But not everyone accepts their union. When a fire breaks out and Sully is wounded both men have to seriously consider a change of plans.

Note: This short story is a spin off from Dancing Around the Cop, book two in the Alpha and Omega series. While it can be read as a standalone, you will understand more about the secondary characters if you have read that book first.

This book is an M/M true mate romance. It depicts intimate scenes between males.

Updates – my poor neglected blog

Hi everyone, I know, nothing has been posted since Tell Me The Truth was released, but I promise you I have been working hard.

Firstly, on a personal note, I took a day off from my writing cave last week and attended my daughter Holly’s graduation. I was such a proud mama that day. With both my sons beside me and my son-in-law, we proudly watched Holly crossing the stage to accept her degree.  She worked really hard and during the course of her three years study had two more children and got married, so I am very proud of her.

On the book writing front, I have two short books coming out this month. Firstly, A Touch of Spring, which is out today on Amazon. This is a short story I wrote about Bronson, from Harder in Heels. I wrote the first part of the story for Stormy Glenn’s Spring Anthology competition which ran during the month of April and yet I just had to finish it.  The cover model is another one from the wonderful Paul Henry Serres. He takes pictures of the most amazing men. If you want to see the blurb you can find it here – https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072563MSP

My next book out will be Change of Plans. This is another spin off from an Alpha and Omega book – this time, Dancing Around the Cop. Yes, I have finally written Sully and Q’s story and that will be out on May 15th.

As always, there is more to come. At the moment I am writing Poseidon’s story in the Gods Made Me Do It series and I also have a new surprise coming your way soon as well. Have a brilliant day and please know, even if I don’t update this poor blog very often, I am definitely still writing.

Hug the one you love 🙂

Title:  Tell Me the Truth

Book 5

Stockton Wolves Series

Author: Lisa Oliver

 

BLURB

Special Agent Niclas Draig was on a mission…well, he was supposed to be. But when sent to Stockton with his partner Jack, to investigate what looked like the work of a serial killer, he walked into the Captain’s office and found himself looking at his mate. A mate, who’s delicious scent was tinged with deceit as the man looked him in the eye and lied to his face.

Captain Anthony Reynolds was getting tired of the way paranormals played fast and loose with the law and his life. Eighteen months from retirement, the last thing he expected when the FBI came in was to have such a physical reaction to one of the agents. When the same agent blasts him two weeks later for lying, Tony knew his life was going to change. He’d been around paranormals enough to know exactly what the word mate meant. But that didn’t mean he had to accept it.

An unguarded moment, a flash of teeth and both men’s lives change. Their mating causes problems from every angle and…an unexpected bonus. An abduction, a bomb and Nico’s interfering family – will Nico and Tony ever get their HEA?

EXCERPT

 

Tony hesitated as he got out of his car. The sight of Special Agent Schubert running down the driveway like the hounds of hell were after him was bad enough. The roaring coming from inside the house was another thing entirely. It was an unearthly sound – pure rage and frustration, loud enough to send a shiver down his spine. No wonder Jack was running; Tony was inclined to follow suit.

A mate will never hurt you. Melissa, Grant, Shane, Dimitri, they all said the same thing. Even Alexi lived by the same code, and he couldn’t run on four legs. At least, Tony didn’t think he could but then what he knew about vampires wouldn’t cover a pinhead. Should I? Shouldn’t I? Fuck this. I’m a damn police captain and I’ve dealt with paranormals before. Determined to show no fear, Tony strode towards the open door.

“Hello?” He called out sharply, not seeing anyone in the opulent hallway. Either his mate had deep pockets or was squatting in a high-end vacant house. The roaring seemed to come from the living room and squaring his shoulders, Tony stepped inside, his shoes loud on the marble floor. Peering around the closest door, he was faced with another huge room. But it wasn’t the plush velvet curtains, another chandelier or even the plastic on the furniture that caught Tony’s attention. It was Nico, shirtless, his neck muscles straining as he cursed the ceiling in a guttural language Tony didn’t understand.

Every muscle on Nico’s torso was deeply defined; his face red, his black curls glistening with sweat as they kissed the top of broad shoulders. This was a man deeply tormented; a beautiful man fighting a shift into something decidedly not human. Jet black scales covered Nico’s arms and chest, receding one minute and reappearing the next. Tony had never known his other shifter friends to have so much trouble with their animal half; with the exception of Sin and he’d only heard about that second hand. But this, watching Nico…The man needs help.

“Special Agent Draig!” Tony stepped into the room, his heart threatening to break his ribcage. “Nico, calm down; deep breaths.” Huh, who am I kidding? I’m the one who can’t breathe. An indescribable power surged around the room; something that crackled the air and sucked the life right out of it. Despite his fears, Tony moved forward. Never let it be said the mating pull didn’t work both ways; Tony could feel his own inner battle raging – get the fuck out of the room or help the man some power decided he should be bound to for life.

“Nico.” Tony touched Nico’s back, his fingertips burning. “Tell me what’s wrong. Maybe I can help.”
