Sascha Duncan is one of the Psy, a psychic race that has cut off its emotions in an effort to prevent murderous insanity. Those who feel are punished by having their brains wiped clean, their personalities and memories destroyed. Lucas Hunter is a Changeling, a shapeshifter who craves sensation, lives for touch. When their separate worlds collide in the serial murders of Changeling women, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities…or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.

Still busy

Hi everyone, Well, I'm still working my butt off trying to make not only my set goal for the end of this week, but I've decided to add three more stories to the mix. I have a deadline on one of the end of Sept. The second by Oct first and another following just after that so I've been very busy, which is why I haven't checked in everyday. I hope ya'll don't mind me taking a break to write and only checking in every so often for a while. I do have a lot of writing to get done plus there is plenty of workshops and stuff going on within the next month over at the Romance Divas. I'd really like to check out a few in particular. Till I check in next time I thought I'd post some things for you to keep you busy. Emma Sanders is giving away a free copy of her book and running a contest as well. Here's where to enter: http://emmasanders.com/Contests.html Zinnia Hope has two new bite releases from Freya's Bower. The Sexual Science of Witchery and The Science of Magick. Here's the link:www.freyasbower.com/content/view/96/86/ Rose Middleton's, The Devil's Veil (Paranormal) available from Linden Bay Romance Jodici Belle's, A Devil's Proposal (Historical Romance) available from New Concepts Publishing Mia Ramano's, My Lips are Sealed available from Cobblestone Press. Ann Cory's, Butterfly Kisses and Melting Iron available from Cobblestone Press. Debbie Mumford's, Sorcha's Heart(Fantasy) available from Freya's Bower. Tawny Taylor's, Mark of the Beast(Shapeshifter Romantica) available from Ellora's Cave. Crystal Jordan's, Full Swing available from Cobblestone Press. I won a download copy of this book and I have to say WOW. It's full of emotion and erotic romance (Romance being the opertive word here) It's a great short read. The only downside is that you'll wish it were longer. Bring the kleenex for this one ladies. Well, I think that's it. I hope these will keep you busy for a while. I'll be back soon. In the meantime enjoy. Hugs, Sienna

What a Day

I'm telling you, when the day starts off bad don't bother getting up. Just crawl back under those covers, bury head and all, and say the heck with it till tomorrow. My morning started at 6:45 am after two hours sleep. Yep, only two hours. My sons, instead of going to school this morning, had a doctors appointment. Fun dragging three boys to the doctors office let me tell ya. After arriving at the doctors office 15 minutes early to a packed waiting room, we ended up waiting an additional 55 minutes to be called back. K, I'll be nice. Keep your irritation under control, you're just exhausted. Not, once back there it took another thirty minutes for all three boys to be weighed and bp's taken then trips to the potty for collection. K, getting irked now. Then we get placed in the room and nurse says strip to your underwear. K, no problem, but boys protest big time to her request and it's freezing in the room. Another thirty five minutes pass before the doctor finally decides to show up. Ten minutes later all three boys get a bill of health, three prescriptions and new medical info added to their charts. So I make a comment to the doctor about how busy he is and he replies "Yeah everybody waits till the last minute before school starts" Now I'm pissed and reply, "My kids have been in school for two weeks now. Due to my insurance I have to wait exactly a year to the day before I can bring my three in for their yearly physcials" He waves me off and walks out. Yeah kiss my ass to you too doc. Geez. So another twenty five minutes later I have school excuses, a scolosis xray order for my youngest twin son, and am checked out. Then it's off to the hospital next door, where I am moved from one end to the other before finally forty five minutes later my son is called back for his xray. (Yes I'm gritting my teeth by now with three kids hollering Mom I'm hungry) So I leave the hospital after a grand total of an hour and fifteen minutes and take them to get something to eat. Kids fed and quiet in the backseat I then head for the pharmacy to be told it'll be an hour wait before their meds are ready. Yep the kiddos didn't take that one well either. Mom is ready to pull her hair out and is having a really hard time keeping her eyes open without effort. I ask the lady to just keep the prescripts till tomorrow and I'll pick them up then. My kids do not do well in town or all day trips out (hey their mountain boys). They're tired, cranky and fighting like cats and dogs here. One more stop to go and finally I'm headed home. The minute I walk through the door my oldest son hits the sack, my other two hit the couches to kick back and watch tv and mom's sitting there wishing like hell she could take a nap as she begins to tackle the laundry, dishes, mail and everything else I have to do in the day. Sometimes it just doesn't pay to get out of bed in the morning. (Yawn) You might ask well why are you still up right now, well I have another couple hours worth of work (this time it's my writing work) to do before I can actually lay down tonight or should I say in the morning before doing it all over again come 6:30-7:00 am. The good news is that the boys are going to school tomorrow (Yay) and Mom just might get a cat nap, although, I seriously doubt it, but hey a gal can dream right or at least I can until 3:45 when the boys get home from school. LOL. You know sometimes it's hard to wear so many caps in one day. It's exhausting on most days, but at the end of it when your kids are asleep and you're exhausted with no bedtime in site, just seeing those angels (yeah only when they're asleep are they angels) so peaceful makes the whole day worth while. At least until the following morning when it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. Night everyone, Sienna

Freya's Bower Publisher and Author Chat Tomorrow Night and a personal reflection

Image created by Bella Tyler Just click on the pic above to be taken to the Freya's Bower site. Also, please remember that you MUST be 18 or older to participate. I hope to see some of you there, and no I'm not one of their author's, but many of my Diva friends are. Show up, win prizes and meet some of my Diva friends. You'll have a ball. On a side note, I've been thinking the past few days about how much writing I've gotten done in the last two weeks as opposed to before. I feel like a weight has been lifted off and my energy and mental focus have returned to me. I'm absolutely thrilled to feel this excitement once again after being so lost in a vaccum and void of entanglements that did nothing but drag me down and I have the Divas to thank for that. They inspire me on a daily basis with their renewed energies and positive outlook on life in general. Many divas have given me support through a recent ordeal without even knowing it and shown me that there are "real" people out there who do care about eachother even if they've never met face to face. I want to thank every one of you for being the people that you are. Friendly, welcoming, reassuring, inspiring, and Divalicious all the way. You ladies and gents rock out loud. Thank you all for being who you are and accepting people for who they are without judgements. You all are so free with your knowledge and support and I'm so proud to be a member of the Diva family. Hugs and love to all of you, Sienna

What I've Been Up To

Hi Everyone, Well it's been a little while since I posted. I do have a good reason. I've been slaving over my story "Got Sex" and whooohooo I'm almost done with the first draft. Not to mention being pulled away from the keyboard (Okay so nobody twisted my arm, but hey I'm an RD junkie) by my one addition--Romance Divas. The board has been humming with news from Hotlanta, workshops galore and our coming spotlight author. Oh, and then there's the little task of designing another website on top of being mom, wife and all those little chores that go along with that title and today was the first day of school. Yes, school started early here this year. Waaaa. I was actually enjoying my summer and now it's come to an end. Darn it. Getting up at the crack of dawn is not my idea of fun (Sorry, I'm a nightbird.) I get most of my writing done once the kiddos are in bed and as long as the writing flows without a telephone interruption and boy have the words been flowing the last few days for me. I'm so happy with my progress, despite the constant interruptions. On another note, the query contest winners have been announced and while I didn't make the cut I do want to offer big congrats to those that did. Yay ladies. Way to go. Now, just because my story didn't make the cut doesn't mean I'm giving up on it. I'm going to wait till my results come in and decide where to go from there depending on the feedback and hopefully in the near future "Got Sex" will find a home (even if it's under my other pen name. Wink) I think that about covers it for today. Thanks for joining me. Hugs, Sienna
