Killer Shades Excerpt!

Sighing, he rubbed the back of his neck and strode toward the victim sprawled across the yellow line. Ten yards in and he recognized the vic. Air hissed into his lungs, and he nearly choked on it. Wayne. He had to be dead. No one could live through that head wound. What the hell. Alarm exploded inside his chest as he looked around at the people on the street and the vicinity. Then he saw her, and the air left his lungs in one, big whoosh. But he didn’t relax. Quite the opposite.


His chest tightened almost painfully.

Their gazes meshed across a good thirty yards that separated them. Even from this distance, he noticed the color had leached from her face and accented her lips and the dark wings of her brows. Still, she was as beautiful as ever. The mahogany mane of hair, thick and luscious, flowed around her shoulders. Her eyes, such an incredible blue, always seemed to pierce through him to that deep, dark area of his soul he never wanted anyone to delve into. But she had. She’d wanted to know everything about him, only to promptly leave him when she’d learned exactly who he was.

Enough. Forget the bitterness, forget the hurt. He only had seconds to get over being blindsided.

My Obsession: New Release by Cassie Ryan

Available Now – Released July 21, 2015

my obsession, cassie ryan

In this erotic story of temptation and total surrender for readers of Sylvia Day and J. Kenner, a powerful master gives his dream girl a new beginning in the dungeons of decadent ecstasy.

Running from a troubled past, Sandra Barry spent years hiding out in New York City’s BDSM scene, finding satisfaction and even a sense of community as a sub at a large dungeon. But when a stalker joins the dungeon posing as a Dom, he crosses her personal boundaries, giving her no choice but to return home to Arizona. Seeking refuge once again in the kink lifestyle, Sandra meets a sexy new Dom whose tutelage drives her wild—although there’s something familiar about him she just can’t place.

As a teenager, Brent Weston was a nerd. Now he owns the hottest dungeon in Phoenix, enjoying the power and success he’s always craved. All that’s missing is the right woman to share it with. Then one day Sandra, his secret high school crush, walks into his club. She’s just as beautiful as he remembers. She’s also scared as hell. Brent has been waiting for this moment, and now that Sandra’s in his sights, he’ll do anything to protect her, pleasure her—and prove that he’s the only master worthy of her devotion.

My Obsession is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

The Hinkiest Fairy Godmother in the Universe Rides Again!

The Hinkiest Fairy Godmother in the Universe Rides Again!

Delta Jane is back and Loons of a Feather is now a reality.  Yep, I made it…got it loaded, proofed, and released on time.  Was there really any doubt I would get there in time, you ask?  Well hell yes…it’s me, people!  Did you forget who you were talking to?  I’m the master procrastinator and there was much panic, many late nights, lots of bleary-eyed cursing sessions, and twisted belly pains.  But my new novel, Loons of a Feather, is finally available on Amazon.   Yeah…happy dancing across the pasture again.

Ya-Hoo!    (Throws cowgirl hat in the air!)

The official release date is tomorrow—February 1—but if you go to Amazon right this very minute, it’s up and available for order.  So pass the word!

Tell your mother, your sister, your neighbor, your cousin, your niece, your grocery store clerk, your therapist, your gynecologist…tell ‘em all!!!  Wait…maybe not your therapist…Delta might not help your cause any.  🙂  And don’t forget to tell the guys too.  I was amazed at how many men bought a copy of Katie’s Rock and Midnight on the Double-B at my book signing last weekend…some as Valentine’s gifts for their sweetie and some as Valentine’s gifts for themselves.  So contrary to popular opinion, men DO buy romance…at least, the smart ones do.  🙂

Lay Down Dates and Other Party Games…

As most of you know, my first book as Cassie Ryan is getting ready to release.  And the Kensington Aprhodisia line usually has four books releasing a month.  So, when I saw on the loops yesterday that there were beginning to be Ceremony of Seduction sightings, as well as the other three books which are July 31st releases with mine, I wanted to go see for myself.  Before I could sign off my computer last night, an email popped in from a reader telling me how much they enjoyed Ceremony of Seduction, and asking when the next one would be out. 

Okay – great news that people are already liking it.  And fan mail is always better than “YOU SUCK” mail 🙂  So, today, I headed down to my local book store.  The other three books set to release with mine are on the shelf and available to buy, but mine was nowhere to be found.  When I asked at the desk they said it was still listed as not yet released.  Hmmm, okay.  I asked if it had a hard laydown date and I got a deer in the headlights look.

For those of you not familiar with a laydown date, let me give you a quick tutorial, at least as far as I understand it.  A laydown date is the date the book can hit the shelves.  Usually bookstores don’t follow them as law unless the publisher ensures the date is followed.  And for an author’s first book – as you might have guessed, most publishers don’t push too much to ensure it is followed.  So, why the big deal with laydown dates?  Tracking for lists (you know, NYT Bestsellers, USA Today and etc) starts at the laydown date, so any sales before that date don’t count toward making the lists.  Now, you might not think a new author (or one with a new pen name) is in any danger of this happening – but you never know!  And it helps to understand how these things work.

Anyway, back to our story.  From the first bookstore, I headed over to the second close-by store.  Nope – none of my books there either and once again, when I mentioned laydown date I got the deer in the headlights look.  Sigh…  All they could tell me was that maybe it will release closer to the July 31st date. 

So, what have I learned?  Well – my book is out there somewhere, and people are reading it and liking it 🙂  Which is definitely good news!  But if you want to help me get a fun, hot, irreverent book onto the lists – mark your calendar for July 31st and go grab a copy of Ceremony of Seduction then 🙂

How’s that for shameless self promotion?  LOL!
