Now Available for Pre-order: Undisciplined

Amazon was a little bit slow, but Undisciplined is now up and available for pre-order!!!

You can thank all the readers who requested more information about what was happening between Gabrielle & Felix during Philip's Rules for this little novella =)  It will be released on May 1st.  I had a lot of fun writing it and getting into the nitty gritty of what was going down between these two, which has been very helpful in getting into their characters as I begin working on their book!  I'm about three chapters in to Gabrielle's Discipline and really happy with how it's going so far.  I'm aiming for a June / July release date for that one, and then I'll be back working on Stronghold.

Gabrielle Astley is quite used to being an afterthought, a burden, a nuisance. As the only child - and a useless female one at that - to a Baron, she was both spoiled materially and neglected emotionally. After her father's death, his third wife and her stepmother is remarried, to the stern and cold Marquess of Dunbury. Since the new Baron wants nothing to do with Gabrielle, the Marquess is her new guardian and Gabrielle finds herself in London, receiving her debut. Despite this turn of events, she can't quite shake her spite of her stepmother, and her attitude lands her into hot water and her first spanking at the hand of her guardian. 

The Marquess seems eager to marry her off, and Gabrielle has no objection to that goal. London has everything she ever wanted - glamor, excitement, and, for some reason, quite a few people actually seem to like and take an interest in her. When the Marquess' best friend, the rakish Felix Hood becomes one of those people, Gabrielle finds herself hoping for more than just a standard ton marriage... until she begins to realize that he's not interested in her for herself, and his interest may actually be in someone close to her. 

Felix Hood had no thoughts of settling down in marriage - as the youngest of three brothers, he should be the last to wed. However, when he meets his best friend Philip's new ward and is tasked with the duty of helping guard her against any unsavory suitors (as well as guarding Philip's new wife from Miss Astley's waspish tongue), he can't help but be entranced by her. She's not the usual milk and water miss that is served up to the gentlemen of the tongue; she's prickly, funny, and has a touch of sadness in her eyes that he longs to discover the cause of so that he may vanquish it. But he's not convinced he's ready for marriage, and his hesitation over formally courting her leads Miss Astley to turn to her other suitors, making him wonder if she's really worth the chase. 

This novella was written at the request of readers who wanted to know what was happening between Felix and Gabrielle during Book 1 of the Bridal Discipline Series, however it is not necessary to read Philip's Rules in order to enjoy this novella. 

Undisciplined is approximately 30k words and contains steamy sexual situations, hot alpha males, and just a bit of discipline.

In other news, I submitted a story to Literotica last night, so hopefully that will be up within the next couple of days =)  Also, newsletter receivers got the one and only teaser for Chasing His Bunny yesterday... I am so excited for April 1st this year!  (and I swear, even though it's coming out on April Fool's Day, it's a real book!).

I'm really excited to be able to start doing pre-orders... I'll admit, I didn't initially feel like it was that great a thing, since I was all about getting my books out as fast as possible, but it's really giving me the opportunity to do more editing / clarifying of the story that might not otherwise get done.  I think it's going to make for better books overall and hopefully everyone will be happy with the end product.

Also, as always, a HUGE thank you to RaineyCloud9 for the gorgeous cover!
