How exciting is this…my first audio book! I love this…and next up is Forbidden Love. I’m listening to the final proof of Forbidden Love now, and Highland Shift will start production in a couple of weeks.
Give it a listen!
Here I am at the Romance Novel Convention 2014 with two absolutely amazing authors. Anne Perry, on the left has over twenty-five million books in print and Angela Knight on my right, has 16 novels with wonderful naughty, smutty goodness. I was privileged to attend sessions on writing from both of these fantastic authors. I am worn out from the week, but feeling marvelously inspired.
I’m so very excited to have a Book Blast tour hosted by Pride-Promotions and all of the wonderful bloggers who have volunteered to host the guys from the Willow Springs Ranch.

I know many of you read the Willow Springs Ranch Series, but if you haven’t yet dipped into the Pulp Friction 2014 collection, now’s a great time to try. Park Williams and Tanner Triplett have left the WSR for Flagstaff and have moved in to a cabin at Mountain Shadows…or have they?
Here’s the blurb:
For the free-spirited Park Williams, leaving the relative safety of the Willow Springs Ranch for a remote cabin near Flagstaff to spend some quality alone-time with his new boyfriend seems like a no-brainer. They can get to know each other while hiding away from the bad guys who may or may not be looking to kill his lover. At least it seems like a good idea right up until the minute he is standing on the front porch, with a man he’s known less than three weeks, and who spent two of those weeks in police custody. Oh shit.
Tanner Triplett is having a bad month. After two attempts on his life, he’s helped put his father and brother behind bars, lost his beloved ranch, and oh yeah…stepped out of the closet in a big way. But it remains to be seen if he’s in bigger danger from the men he’s agreed to testify against, or the golden-haired, cosmic-quoting devil trying to kill him with soy-gurt.
Join Park, Tanner, and their dogs Scooby and Taco as they make the move east to the Mountain Shadows Resort to meet up with their new neighbors and join in the fun that is Pulp Friction 2014.
About Pulp Friction 2014
Laura Harner ~ Lee Brazil ~ Havan Fellows ~ T.A. Webb
The Pulp Friction 2014 Collection. Four authors. Four Series. Twenty books. One fiery finale. Spend a year with an eclectic group of strangers brought together through circumstances, as they are tested by life, and emerge as more than friends.
The strongest bonds are forged by fire, cooled in air, smoothed by water, grounded in earth.
Although each series can stand alone, we believe reading the books in the order they are released will increase your enjoyment.
Tanner stepped outside and draped an arm over Park’s shoulder. “What did I miss?” he asked.
“Just an invitation to drinks tonight,” Park said, turning to smile at his lover.
The moment stretched out and Tanner’s eyes seemed to go a little unfocused. His lips parted. “Oh…”
“Maybe another time,” Scott said with a laugh in his voice. “Looks like you two might be busy later. I’ll see you around. Welcome to Mountain Shadows.”
They continued to stare at each other long after the sound of Scott’s footsteps faded away. The wind whispered through the tops of the tall pines, but otherwise, the camp was quiet. According to the map and their initial drive through the property, there were fourteen cabins, plus the lodge. Scott said six of the cabins were occupied and the closest one was a few hundred yards away. He supposed a scream might carry…
Park barely restrained the shudder that threatened. Standing here on the porch of a place registered in his name with a man he had just by default committed to spend the next six months with. A man he’d known less than three weeks, and who had spent two of those weeks in police custody. What the fuck am I thinking?
“Is it weird that I’m freaking out a little bit here?” Park asked, wishing he could find his usually ever-ready laugh.
Tanner traced the line of Park’s jaw and smiled a little, but there was a touch of sadness in the look. “Hey, I understand. This was really big and way too soon. You just got caught up in the craziness. Why don’t I— Shit.” Tanner dropped his hands and stepped back. “Listen, I need a ride back to town.”
“Back to town?” Park echoed.
“Yeah, honey. I can find something there and we can start over. I’m not ready to push you into something you’re not ready for…karma or not.” Tanner bent and claimed Park’s mouth in a gentle kiss that seemed to chase the shadows away.
Their lips brushed together, the touch light, more promise than substance. Then Tanner licked at the seam of Park’s mouth, and he opened to his lover’s invitation. Despite the frigid outdoor temperatures, the heat of the moment had passion igniting instantaneously between them, and Park moaned into Tanner’s kiss. Then Tanner wrapped a big hand around the back of his neck and Park fell against the taller man with a groan. When a hand landed on his ass, Park rubbed into the touch. Tanner’s hand slid into Park’s hair and freed it from the scrunchy.
Using his hair like a handle, Tanner tugged hard enough to raise Park’s face even more before he buried his nose in the crook of Park’s shoulder. “I don’t really want to go…” he whispered. He licked his way up Park’s neck to the swirl of his ear. “Tell me to stop,” he whispered.
“Nuh uh,” Park managed on a half groan.
Tanner pulled back and studied his face. Park wanted to offer reassurance that he was okay, but all the blood seemed to have left the speech center of his brain and now throbbed in his dick. It appeared Tanner liked what he saw, because Park suddenly found himself lifted from the porch and tossed over Tanner’s shoulder, the proverbial sack of potatoes.
Stepping inside, Tanner closed the door firmly and strode straight through the cabin to the downstairs bedroom. Hanging upside down, Park came cheek to cheek with the twin globes of a tight ass covered in faded denim. He thought he might be drooling.

Whoo hoo! We’re only a few hours away from the launch of Park’s Lot, Willow Springs Ranch #5 With this book, we have two covers…one especially designed to keep Amazon happy (I hope) and then one for the other book sellers, who generally are more tolerant of my covers. It’s kind of amusing, Amazon doesn’t actually ban the covers, but it does re-categorize the books from romance to erotica, which makes them a tad harder to find. They don’t pop up as suggested reads.
Here’s your cover art and book description. Park’s Lot will be available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTes, Smashwords, and All Romance eBooks. iTunes, Kobo, and Sony, will load eventually, but they are notoriously slow with erotic romances.
When vegan, peace-loving, social do-gooder Park Williams stumbles across the half-dead cattle rancher who has been sabotaging the Willow Springs Ranch in the name of a homophobic militia group…there’s only one thing to do. Save his life, then share his tent. Waking to find the man’s dick pressed against his ass is just a bonus.
Tanner Triplett is in trouble. Not the your-brother-is-a-sociopathic-murderer-and-you’re-his-next-victim sort of trouble. Not even the your-father-is-trying-to-overthrow-the-federal-government-and-you’re-going-to-jail-for-helping kind of trouble. No…this is the sort of trouble that comes when you wake up with stranger’s dick in your hand. Holy fuck. How is he going to get out of this?
A sudden need to run for their lives ought to do it.
Determined to make amends, Tanner leads Park to the relative safety of the WSR, where the biggest danger should be from gun-wielding cowboys seeking revenge. Tanner hadn’t counted on sharing a room with the exotically beautiful Park or the danger to his heart when the carefully erected walls protecting his secret come tumbling down.
Looking to try something new?
Come check out the new way to buy all your favorite books by Laura Harner and visit her Amazon store here!
February and March are teaming up to be quite busy months.
My first really big news… on February 10, Continental Divide, Separate Ways: I has been selected by BookBub to kick off their brand new LGBT subscription service. They will be sending out the FREE buy links to over 30,000 subscribers. I am unbelievably honored.
Not a member of BookBub yet? Follow the link and sign up—they work with big name authors, multiple NYT and USA Today Best Seller, in
dies, and publishers, too. The win is for their subscribers-who get direct email listings every day for free or low cost books from their favorite genres/categories. Be sure to select the LGBT option as one of your choices so you can give Continental Divide some love. This is going to be their first gay promotion, so we need to drum up the business, because this is an invaluable resource for indie authors, on that’s been out of reach for the LGBT community.
Starting February 24, I’ll be working with Book Monster Promotions on a blog tour for the Highland Destiny Series. You will want to follow the tour because the prizes are 2-$100 Amazon Gift Cards! I’ll post links as soon as they are available.
Finally, I know many of you are waiting for the Park’s Lot, WSR #5. Hang in there, it’s almost ready. The book is currently in edits, but with so many things going on, it is going to be slightly later than anticipated. Look for a February 20-ish release date.
I have a very naughty cover draft that is definitely going to need some creative banner use to make it suitable to post on Amazon, lol.
Here is the “working” draft…definitely NOT finished.
I’m very pleased to announce the second edition of Honey House is now available all retail sites, with a fresh edit and a brand new cover. Help me celebrate by getting your copy today.
Am I nuts? Probably, but that’s beside the point…
Last year, Honey House had an exclusive run at Amazon, with over 30,000 copies sold or given away. Only silly me…I forgot to load it onto the other retail sites once the Amazon deal was over, and the poor book languished in obscurity. Once I realized my oversight, I thought this personal favorite of mine deserved a fresh edit and shiny new cover. I’m very pleased with the whole package. The next book in the series is now actively on the writing list and will be available this spring—so get your copy of Honey House today. As always, I appreciate you giving my books a read!
…don’t try to change the name, the House won’t like it.
I really love this book. KC has a very hard back story, and emerged as a very strong, if isolated young woman. She doesn’t take any BS from anyone, and yet there are still flashes of vulnerability that show up from time to time. Honey House is nominated for the 2013 Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewer’s Choice Award.
