A new trend in Paranormal and Fantasy Romance

I'm over at Here Be Magic talking about a new trend I've seen lately in paranormal and fantasy romance where the first book in a series ends with a cliffhanger on the romance and the same hero and heroine pair continues throughout the series. 

It's really common in Urban Fantasy, but I've been seeing it more and more in books marketed as romance. I'm really curious to know how people feel about that, so stop by and let me know! 

Here's the post: http://herebemagic.blogspot.com/2015/05/is-this-really-romance.html

Weekend Writing Warriors

Hi all! I'm just going to pick up from where I left off last week with the WIP. Molly's in the middle of fishing Flynn out of a bit of trouble.


Molly finished cutting through the binding and climbed off the bed. Flynn rubbed his wrists and watched her with a lustful gleam in his eyes. He'd always liked when she dressed up for him, and this dress was something else. Rich materials, all emerald satin and costly lace inset in tantalizing places. It plumped her breasts enough to make her afraid her nipples might pop out, corseted her waist, and flared at her hips. The skirt was ruched up on one side to expose her leg all the way to the garter.

She cocked her head coquettishly to the side. “You like the dress?”

Weekend Writing Warriors

This is from my work in progress. The file name is 'The Continuing Adventures of Flynn and Molly' but it needs a new (shorter) title. Flynn and Molly are recurring characters from the Reaper series who like to dive into trouble headfirst.

“I’m saving you,” Molly said, hiking up her skirt to reach her knife.
“Taking turns, are we?”
“It's not funny," she snapped. "I told you not to risk it. Next time around I might just let you rot.”
She had to lean across him to reach the rope and Flynn decided to make things difficult by kissing the tops of her breasts where they mounded above the corset.
"You can leave me tied up for a while if you like. You know, to punish me for not listening.”

Weekend Writing Warriors

This snippet is from Ride to Ruin. It's probably the last snippet I'll take from this story before moving on to my current work in progress. It's a little bit spicy.


Ellie tasted Garrett’s throat as he laid her down, their bodies sliding together and then apart as he drew back to reposition himself between her legs. Cool, soft hair brushed against her calves as she wrapped herself around him, pulling him closer. Her fingers pressed into the firm skin of his buttocks. His hot, smooth cock slid along the crease between her thighs, but he didn’t immediately try to get inside her. 

Instead, he kissed her softly. Slow and sweet. Savoring the moment rather than rushing through it toward the end.

When a religious sect settles north of Fort Dougan in an abandoned city called Ruin, it doesn’t take long for stories to spread that something’s not right about the place. Charismatic preacher Thaddeus Blackwell has promised his flock a better life, unsullied by the decadence of Scraper society and the immorality of life on the border. With an army of cured Reapers under his command, Blackwell is determined to build a godly society…even if he has to use ungodly means to do it.

Working the ranch with the horses she loves, Ellie hasn’t paid much attention to the rumors about Ruin until her sister is charged with Blackwell’s murder. Ellie drops everything to ride to Lu’s aid, only to find that her sister has fled town with a Ranger hot on her trail and Thaddeus’s son, Mordecai, out for her blood.

Ranger Garrett Landry believes Lu is the key to getting his family out of Ruin alive, and he needs to reach her before Mordecai finds her first. Reluctantly accepting Ellie as his partner in the search, Garrett doesn’t expect to fall in love with the brave but in over her head rancher. And he never imagines that Ellie might be the one to save him instead.
