What do I have planned for the future?

First, THE DREGS, a dark romantic suspense series with sci-fi elements: 

Feared by most. Hated by others. Envied by none. 

Always hunted, they live in the shadows. 

Once powerful warriors, they are now the dregs.

In a city overrun by gang violence, can these former soldiers overcome their violent pasts, dispel the stigma surrounding them, and learn to help those in need?

I'm working on the edits for the first book in the series, THE TRACKER, and anticipate a late January or early February release. Here's the cover:  

 

And the blurb:  

I’m a trained killer. An expert tracker.

I’ve done despicable things. My soul is damaged. My body impaired. That’s what happens when you are a soldier for The Company. I was discharged a year ago. Now I am a dreg. Worthless. With a bounty on my head. I've become a creature of the night, hiding in an underground maze during the day. Because I’m not ready to die yet.

She comes to me one night, needing my help to find her sister. The moment I see her, I want her. Her goodness calls to me, makes me yearn for the impossible. She brings life back to the deadness inside me. I’m no good for her. I will do nothing but corrupt her. But I’m a callous bastard. I can’t resist her.

I try not to care for her, but somehow she slips under my skin. She makes me weak. And there is only one thing in this world I am afraid of. Weakness.

I’ll never be good enough for her, so I have to finish this job and send her on her way.

Before she destroys me.

Book 2, THE OUTSIDER, will follow in June. Here's the cover: 

 

And the blurb: 

My dreg name is The Fighter. I’m a scary bastard. An expert in mixed martial arts. My nickname is “Phantom of Death”. I don’t think I need to explain why. I’m dangerous.

I had to betray my dreg brothers to protect my child. I’m a traitor now. An outsider. So I keep my distance from them. Hiding in the shadows. 

But I have more important things to worry about than trying to win back their trust. I have a kid to take care of now. A five-year-old little girl who is sweet and pure and as innocent as they come. She scares the hell out of me. I don’t know the slightest thing about kids. I need a nanny to care for my daughter. So I place an ad on the job board in Augusta in the hopes that someone will reply.

The woman who responds is not what I expect. She’s young and gorgeous and way out of my league. But she’ll have to do, since I have no one else. I try not to want her. I try to keep my distance. But she is pure temptation. And I’m falling under her spell. 

She doesn’t know that working for me puts her in danger. She doesn’t know who or what I am. And I plan to keep it that way. 

Because the truth could hurt her. 

And so could I.

I have outlined all eight books in this series and have completed the covers. Blurbs will be added as I finish each one. Here are the covers for the complete series:

       

    

    

 

That's all for now. An eight-book series will take me a couple of years to write. But I have many exciting and suspenseful things planned for this series. Eight hunky warriors. Eight strong heroines. Eight HEAs.
