Book: Storm (ashes & embers #1)
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The calm before the storm…
I lived in the quiet stillness.   
I felt the wind rustle, warning me, telling me to get out of its path.
But I didn’t.
I never stood a chance.
A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger.  In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours.
A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle. 
A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turned my insides to jelly. 
A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out.
Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold.
He’s used to getting everything he wants.
And now he wants me.
Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?

Wicked Blush - teaser  


Wicked Blush, Tequila 10
Prince Connor walks over to the bar to get a drink. Hell, I need a drink because I’m so fucking anxious to talk to my dragonette. This coke really gets me drunk. It’s amusing because alcohol doesn’t affect me at all. He takes the glass of coke from the bartender. He sips his drink and leans against the pillar. He looks at the Wolff Dynasty Estate, nodding. Yeah, this place is fit for royalty. Basically, that’s what they are. Fierce walks over to Prince Connor to stand next to him. “Well, look who just arrived.” He grins, winks at him. Prince Connor looks over at the door. He releases his breath after looking her over. Oh hell, she’s even more beautiful in person. I love her hot body and her face is gorgeous. Damn, I’m lucky that she’s mine. Prince Connor moves to adjust his aching cock. His eyes go to her beautiful breasts and then up to look at her sweet full lips. Later,” says Fierce as he walks away from Prince Connor. Yeah, I have to tell Fire so he can help me with this. I don’t want him to get pissed off if Prince Connor comes on too strong. He turns and leaves to talk to Fire. Prince Connor leans against the wall next to the window, watching Princess Josephine aka Blush. Blush is wearing a beautiful silky dusty rose dress that shimmers when she moves. The sweetheart bodice is fitted down to the waist. The dress has straps that fall off her shoulder in a cascade of material, and the skirt is a beautiful sheer chiffon that flares out like a cloud around her thighs. On the waist line, the dress has a ribbon that ties into a bow over her right hip. She’s wearing beautiful diamond chandelier drop earrings that sparkle when she moves. Blush moves her right hand up to her waist and looks around the room. The beautiful diamond, wide-cuff bracelet sparkles brilliantly. Hmmm, I can feel someone watching me. Who could it be? Wow, I know everyone here. She slowly turns to look around and notices the handsome young man leaning against the wall near the window. Uh, I don’t know him but I can tell that he’s a dragon. She looks at him, glancing down to his black shiny leather shoes. She then moves her gaze up his black slacks, up to perfectly fitted black classic tuxedo. She narrows her eyes, nodding her pleasure. Oh yeah, the tux fits him perfectly. Oh yeah, my dragonette is a beauty. I love her style and her black hair is silky, shiny, beautiful. Connor takes a drink of his coke. Blush moves her gaze up to scrutinize his perfect square jawline that has a short black goatee framing his luscious full red lips. She bites her lower lip, moving her gaze up to his eyes. He moves his gaze up to her perfect face and gazes right into her beautiful eyes. Hell yes, she’s noticing me. She doesn’t have a clue she’s mine. I love her blue sapphire eyes. Omg, those eyes are truly clear turquoise, my favorite color. I’ve only met a few people that have such a beautiful shade of clear sparkling turquoise. Blush gazes into his eyes: falling, falling deep into his soul. She blinks rapidly. She’s shaken, and blushing. She turns around and glides over to Storm and Dawn, who are walking into the hall with the babies in their arms. Omg, omg! I felt his soul and I swear mine merged with his. I can’t do that. I’m engaged and I can’t fall in love with someone here on earth even if he’s a dragon. Prince Connor pushes away from the wall and shoves his hands into his pockets. Oh Hell yes, she recognizes that she’s my soul mate. She felt our souls merge. I want to run after her so badly but I can’t. I know that she’s afraid of her feelings. He turns to walk over to the bar to get another coke. Oh hell! I need another drink.
Blush smiles at Storm and Dawn. She quickly takes long elegant strides, extending her sexy long legs in a synchronized rhythm, rushing across the room to talk to them. She reaches them, flushed and excited. Yeah, I’m escaping. I can’t deal with these feelings! Geeze, I need my mocha but I need to talk to Storm and Dawn. Omg, Storm, Dawn. Let me see the cubs. They’re so cute. I missed you two. Geeze, it’s seems forever since I last saw you two.” Storm laughs, handing her cub, Sven, to Blush. “Blush, you’re being dramatic! We saw you two months ago, when I had Sven.” She leans close to adjust Sven’s shirt. Dawn laughs at Blush. “Gee, Blush, I miss you too. Look at my cub, William Anthony! He’s growing so quickly. I know that you were too busy with the mavericks to visit when I had him.” Blush pulls Storm’s cub, Sven, close to give him a soft mystical kiss. The kiss sparkles a soft dusty rose. She then turns to look at Dawn’s cub, William Anthony. “Wow, Dawn! William Anthony looks exactly like Thunder! He’s so cute! I love that outfit! Geeze, your cubs are so cute!” She reaches over to stroke William Anthony’s cute flushed cheeks. “Storm, do you know who that dragon is? I don’t know him.” Storm looks around the room, curious to see who has captured Blush’s attention. Wow, that’s so unusual. Blush never appears interested in anyone. I have to see who this dragon is. He has to be special if Blush noticed him. She scans the room, looking for the dragon. Hmm, I can’t locate him. She turns to look for Phantom. Ah, my Babe is talking to a dragon. Yeah, he’s very handsome and I can see why Blush is interested. I wonder if she’s going to forget that she’s promised to Prince Connor. Wow, that would be interesting to see. Hmm, I wonder who he is. I’m going to find out. Storm laughs as she reaches for Sven. “I’m taking Sven to my Babe. I have to talk to Fierce.” Blush nods, smiling. “Let me hold your cub, Dawn. He looks so loveable. Is he a good cub? I can’t wait to marry and have my fledgling.” Dawn laughs. She gazes into Blush’s flushed face. I wonder what’s up. She’s talking about marrying and fledgling. Wow, is she finally going to marry Prince Connor? She looks flushed and excited. Dawn hands William Anthony to Blush. She watches Storm approach Phantom. Hmm, Phantom is talking to a dragon. I wonder if that’s the one that caught Blush’s eye. I know she’s excited. Wow! Dawn turns to Blush, smiling. “Blush, is that the dragon that you’re talking about? The one talking to Phantom? Is that the one that has you excited and flushed? Tell me. Please tell me.” Blush glances quickly at Prince Connor. He glances up and gazes into her eyes. He slowly smiles, then he winks at her. Blush turns away quickly, blushing. “Yes, Dawn. That’s him. Omg, I’m so confused. What should I do? You know that I’m promised to Prince Connor but …” She turns quickly to glance at him again. Prince Connor glances over at her and nods. He turns to talk to Phantom. Dawn watches the exchange. She grins at Blush. “Well?” Blush reddens and looks down at William Anthony. The cub grabs a strand of Blush’s shiny black silky hair. He pulls it, softly gurgling. Well?” Dawn watches Blush closely, smiling. I think that’s the man that will bring Blush to her knees. I know it, I see it. Blush looks up, she smiles a small smile. She bites her lower lip. “Dawn, I feel him. I feel his soul and my body knows him. He’s my mate. What should I do? I can’t acknowledge this. You know that I can’t.” Dawn smiles and raises her hand to her mouth to hide her huge, happy smile. Hell yes! That’s her mate. Omg, what should I tell her? She’s promised to Prince Connor and she can’t betray him. Geeze, this is a mess. Blush waits for Dawn to give her some type of advice. She looks down at the cub. She leans down to give him a mystical kiss. The kiss sparkles a soft dusty rose. William Anthony gurgles, then kicks his chubby legs. He gazes into Blushes eyes.Blush, I don’t know what to tell you. I do know that when your mate is near you, you’re gone. Your natural instinct to mate is overwhelming and consuming. Your body is on fire and anxious to claim your mate.” Blush nods, biting her lower lip. “Yes, I know. I feel it. I don’t know what to do.” Dawn reaches over for her cub, nodding. “Can’t you stay here on Earth realm?” Blush raises her right hand to adjust her long hair over her shoulder. The cuff diamond bracelet sparkles with every movement. Dawn looks at it, nodding. Yeah, fit for a Princess. She grins at her. “Blush, you have such beautiful jewelry. Did your sire gift you that beautiful bracelet?” Blush, nods closing her eyes. “Yes, it’s my last birth gift from my sire. I love it and it has a small little diamond heart.” Yeah, I can see it. Geeze, that’s really an awesome bracelet. I’m taking my cub to the spare crib that Storm has for him. I’ll be right back.” Blush nods, laugh. “I’m going to get a mocha at the bar.” Blush walks slowly over to the bar.
  Prince Connor pushes away from the wall and strides quickly over to Blush. Oh, yes, I’m going to ask her to dance. Everyone is dancing with their mates. She’s mine and I’m not going to sit back and wait. I’m here to get her and seduce her into my arms. Blush leans against the bar counter top, tapping her fingers to the beat. She bites her lower lip. Yeah, I have to control my need to look at him because I know that I will then want to talk to him. I can’t. I’m promised. She turns around to the bartender. She moves a strand of black shiny hair back behind her right ear. “I would love an iced mocha.” She smiles at him flashing her cute dimples. The bartender, Gage Bryant, is a werewolf that works for Phantom and Storm at the Wolff Dynasty Estate with his younger sister, Terri. He dreams of making it big with his werewolf band, the Wolf Howl. Terri helps Storm with little Sven. He blinks, nodding at her. He grins at her and he starts to make the mocha. He watches as Prince Connor approaches Blush. Blush leans her arms on the bar’s counter top, watching Gage make the iced mocha. Hmm, anything is better than to risk turning around to look for that hot dragon. I wonder who he is and who invited him? Prince Connor approaches her and leans in next to her on her right side. He rests his right arm on the counter top. “Why so lonely?” He whispers softly, near her ear. He inhales her delicious spicy flowery scent, causing him to explode into fiery need. Oh yeah, I love her scent, and she’s so fucking aroused. I know this because our bodies’ scent is strong when we’re aroused by our mates. I know that her pussy is sweet, wet, and so ready for me to bury my aching cock. He moves to adjust his swollen cock. Blush startles and slowly turns to look at him. She gazes directly into his beautiful clear turquoise eyes. Wow, omg. I’m falling into his soul. I can feel it, and I can’t stop myself. Omg, his soul is burning into mine. I can’t breathe. My breasts are swollen, my nipples are tight, and sensitive. I can feel the fabric scrape my nipples. Yes, he’s right here next to me and I can smell his yummy scent. My pussy is swelling and aching. I know that he’s aroused. Blush blinks quickly and takes a step back. I can’t feel this for a stranger. I can’t fall for this gorgeous dragon because I’m promised. I know he’s a dragon and he’s my mate. What should I do? These feelings are powerful. They are calling my ingrained instinct to mate with him. She bites her lower lip, confused. Prince Connor reaches out for her, grasping her arm. He pulls her back close to his side. He gazes down, devouring her with his eyes.Wicked Blush, don’t run from me. I would love to have a dance.” A delicious chill runs up their arms, exploding into fiery heat throughout their bodies. They gaze into each other’s eyes for a few moments, stunned. Blush gazes at him, blinking rapidly to break the spell that has captured her. Oh my, my entire body is on fire. I need my mocha. I need to escape these feelings. Blush turns to the bartender, raising an eyebrow. “My mocha?” She blushes, tapping her right hand fingers on the counter top. The bartender nods and hands her the crystal glass with iced mocha. He walks away to make other drinks. Prince Connor holds onto her forearm, moving his right thumb over the veins on her wrist. He inhales deeply, closing his eyes. He opens his beautiful clear turquoise eyes to look at her exquisite profile. Omg, she’s absolutely my soul mate. She’s mine, my dragonette, and my woman. How in the hell will I be able to control myself? I need to desperately love her. I can’t tell her who I am because she’ll run away. I know she will. Prince Connor closes his eyes, inhaling deeply and shuddering. I can feel her fiery blood rush through her veins. I know she’s fighting it. Sweet deity, I can’t wait to taste her sweet spicy pussy. Blush takes a drink of her iced mocha to calm her fiery blood. She stands still, waiting for him to leave. Yes, maybe he’ll leave if I don’t talk to him. Prince Connor waits for her to drink her iced mocha. He drinks his coke. He slowly and softly rubs her wrist, enjoying the feel of her fiery blood rushing rapidly through her veins. She takes another drink, smiling. Oh yeah, this mocha is strong and I’m so relaxed. I don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t dance with this hot dragon. I’m not married yet and he is my mate. My body is linked to his. Maybe I can stay on earth forever. She turns to smile at him, nodding. “Ok, I would love to dance.” Prince Connor smiles a beautiful, one that lights up his eyes. He’s breathtakingly gorgeous. “Wicked Blush, you don’t know how much I desire to dance with you.” Blush eyes shine brightly and she smiles up at him. Oh yeah, I love his eyes and his lips look so, so yummy. I wonder who he is and where’s he from. Blush takes a drink of her iced mocha. She drains the entire large glass and she’s totally relaxed. Prince Connor takes her hand and laces their fingers, shuddering from the intense heat rushing though him. He moves his left hand to unbutton his tuxedo jacket. Oh hell, I’m going to die tonight. She has me totally turned on and desperate. He pulls her into his arms, close, and tight. He leans down to rest his head next to hers. He wraps his arms around her small waist.

Sexy baseball players! I've got them...

I'm excited to reveal the cover for Sliding Into Second. This is Book 2 in my Kingston Heat Series. Trust me you won't want to miss these sexy, dirty-talkin', physically fit athletes. They know how to play on and off the field.

(Working blurb)

Jilted by him once before, but the second time it’s her turn to level the playing field.

Hotshot sports reporter Sage Millan has been busy making a name for herself in the male dominated world of baseball. She’s landed a job as the sports correspondent in Kingston, Rhode Island. Her first assignment is covering the newly crowned World Series champions, The Crushers. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. The only problem, her ex-boyfriend and the only man she’s ever loved is the team’s second baseman. Things ended badly between the two during their college years and she’s not sure she can put those demons to rest.

Professional baseball player Nicolas Cordova is having the time of his life. His team has just won the coveted World Series title. With the victory comes more fame, women and exposure than he ever could have imagined. Things are about to change for the sexy, charismatic athlete. He never expects his high school sweetheart to walk back into his life much less the locker room. 

These days Sage is smarter, more mature and doesn’t plan on being played a second time. Her appearance stirs old memories for Nic. She’s the one he let get away in the name of his career. He vows he can be the man she needs this time around. Will that be enough to mend her broken heart? 

Sliding Into Second is set to release on February 16th, 2015. But if you absolutely can't wait until then check out Book One in the series. Stealing His Heart is available now.

WARNING... Pax will steal your heart

Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love? 

Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school. 

Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He's signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don't mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason. 

While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after?

Wanna have some after holiday fun???  Then join Heather and her friends at the Facebook Event to celebrate the release of Destined.

Before the heartbreak, the life-altering choices, and real life closed in on them, they were just two kids in love.

Nick Sutter, the town bad boy, star of Pittsford High School’s football team, and all around playboy wasn’t used to having to work for dates. Leah Carmichael, Pittsford’s Golden Girl, and star on the track team had no desire to land a boyfriend. When she walked into Physics class on the first day of school her junior year, and realized who was in her class, she vowed to ignore him. Nick had no intention of letting her off the hook though. He patiently waited until the right moment to let her know he wanted her.

Unable to resist him, Leah agreed to go on a date. Try as she might, the feelings she’d been suppressing all year came to the surface, and washed over her like a tidal wave. She wanted him, and he wanted her, but…Nick had scouts ready to make his football dreams a reality.

Deciding that Leah was more important than his future, Nick gave up his chance to play at the college level. He chose to stay behind, and build the foundation for what he thought would be a solid future for him and Leah. Only Leah had other plans… she wanted to get out of Pittsford as fast as possible, and was willing to give up anything to do it, including Nick. When the Olympic scouts offered her a chance of a lifetime, she couldn’t tell them ‘no.’

We saw forgiveness in Shattered, desire in Restored, and unconditional love in Renewed. Now, see how it all started in Destined- Nick and Leah’s beginning.

Her time with him had been everything she’d dreamed of; sexy forbidden, liberating – friends becoming strangers to become lovers but with one huge glitch – she fell head over Louboutin heels in love with him. That had never been part of the plan, for either of them, nor had the arrival of Seb’s girlfriend.
Now Lu is faced with forging a new start without him in it; now she needs to fix her broken heart. She throws herself into work but their joint business collaborations soon find her back within his arms, as together they sizzle but apart they are broken.
Sebastian is an addiction she finds hard to shake and despite a desire to protect herself from the unknown, the sexual force between them is too great to ignore. After much persuasion she agrees to finish their month of passion together. He makes her feel like no other man has, her body craving his touch and her mind his unending friendship. Seb continues to take her to towering heights of pleasure but such desirable highs can come at a price.
Forces out of their control are out to wreak havoc and gain revenge with tragic consequences and all the while, Lucia has this feeling that she is being watched, by another…

THE ONE ADDICTED is the perfect read for lovers of the internationally renowned This Man series from Jodi Ellen Malpas & Sylvia Day's Crossfire series.

The One Awakened


 photo alendra_zpsa0b11ebc.jpg

It began a decade ago with a spilt drink and a missed opportunity amongst two people destined to be together. Now ten years on, sexually frustrated Lucia Myers is seeing her friend as though it were the first time…

Everything changed that Tuesday night when Lucia Myer’s millionaire best friend Sebastian Silver returned home after months working abroad. She took one look at his spine-tingling face and in that moment he stole her breath away, for the second time in a decade…

As a single-mother, her priorities have changed; the only man in he life is her 3year old son Finn. Encouraged by her girlfriends she’s begun to date, but now, staring at Seb with fresh eyes - his appearance suddenly unfamiliar to her and physique making her mouth water; Lu decides that he should be the one to encourage her inner wantonness. What were friends for - if not to help when one was in need?
She forms a plan… a proposition of sorts; one night of pleasure, I’m open to anything, with no ties - the text reads. It couldn’t have been simpler.
She wants to be awakened by someone she can truly trust; one with a skilled repertoire with the ladies and one who will never want more from her – cue Sebastian - the ultimate alpha player!

Sebastian accepts her offer, but only on his terms, introducing rules that she must adhere to. He decides where, when, and that one night would not be enough to truly take Lucia to new heights and show her how it should be really be done! One month it is then…

The heat between them is scorching; the constant fight for control undeniable, as they struggle between the blurred lines of the term ‘mates’. Together they sizzle, but apart they are broken. They must become strangers, and forget their friendship to become lovers, for Lucia to fulfill her desires and for Sebastian to awaken her in a way no other man has achieved.

Soon their time will come to an end; can they ever go back to just being friends?
Forces from their past and present try to destroy their future and all the while, Lucia has this feeling that she is being watched, by another…

The One awakened is romantic, seductive, witty, full of angst, and will make you wish you had your very own Sebastian Silver to proposition.

A Ghost of an Affair BANNER.jpg

A Ghost of an Affair by Ellen March


Grace McGillis is over the moon to have won the love, or at least the favor, of Dr. Sage Gerret, the resident heartthrob at the hospital where she is a receptionist. Sage hopes to “improve” her: to inspire her to eat and drink less and educate herself about fine art and music. Everyone sees Sage as a great catch. Why else would Grace put up with his barbs about her appearance and his uninspired lovemaking?

Enter Breece, an adoring alpha male who is out-of-this-world in bed. That is not surprising, for he is, after all, a ghost. Though Sage may not be anyone’s dream date, he is alive. Grace is falling in love with Breece, but is love enough? Even if fate allows her ghost lover to continue his delightful haunting, how will this couple find love everlasting?


About the Author:

Hello and welcome to my corner of the world :)
I live on top of a mountain in Wales ideal in the summer not so in the winter months or when it rains, which is a lot in Wales!
My three children have left home, however my life is still manic. I live with my husband he sadly won’t leave home but I live in hope (joke). I have one suicidal cat that really does have nine lives.
I have five Alaskan Malamutes. They own me literally as I never go anywhere without taking their hair with me, they insist! My hobbies are showing and working them.
My first love though is writing, it’s a total escape for me my selfish time :) Writing my books takes me from the mundane chores of work into another universe.
Since a child I devoured any written word and enjoy acting out my fantasies in print.
My ambition is to pack in my nine to five job and become a full time writer. Another one of my many dreams. I have stockpiled work of various genres, including my first love erotic romance, followed by psychological thrillers and supernatural so be prepared I am making my mark on the world of literature
