Love Spell Academy Book 2 has arrived!

🌀 LOVE SPELL ACADEMY: BOOK 2 🌀



Apparently there’s a college for magical people.
And I’m in.

I have bodyguards and an entire brigade of pixies who cater to my every whim.

Including doing my hair, which gets curlier every time I do the deed. I’ve got ringlets that would rival Shirley Temple.

That’s because my most important job right now is my harem. The candidates tattoo their names on my arms in sparkly colored letters.

I look like a mermaid biker.

How am I supposed to decide between all these hot guys? I can’t take them all!

Can I?

I already have sweet Caleb.
Outrageously sexy Phantom.

And Merrick.
Who turns out to be my professor.
HAWT!

Then there’s Dare, the rebel.
And Andrew. And Justin.

The only problem with all these choices?

Somebody wants them dead.


WATCH THE TRAILER!


Did you miss book one?


🌀 LOVE SPELL ACADEMY: BOOK 1 🌀


 I should have listened to the snarky ferret.

A hilarious Academy Paranormal Romance about parents, shagging, underdogs, and the perfect love potion

I thought flunking out of college was the worst thing that could happen.

But then my mother’s ferret told me I was doomed.

I really should have paid more attention.

Now I have a boy stalking me through a pewter bowl (don’t ask, just know he kisses like fire.)

Some dark enchanter is trying to kidnap me to make golden babies. (No, not literally gold. I mean, I don’t think so.)

And apparently I’m supposed to select several members of a -- oh, I better not say it. My dad might be reading this. Let’s call it a boy band.

So it’s time to figure this mess out. That my mom did magic. And so can I.

And I guess I have to beat the bad guys and save the world.

Oh wait. Not the world.

Just me.

Good enough. Game on.

The Diamond Thief is here!


The Diamond Thief

She will be mine and she will pay.

A standalone enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense by the author of The Vigilante's Lover

Last night I accomplished the single largest heist of my life -- jeweled swords worth $140 million.

I celebrate by requesting a glorious dark-haired beauty from my favorite escort service.

This call girl is like none other. She’s passionate and wild, and I want to keep her for myself.

I’ve stolen some of the greatest jewels known to man. This mere woman should be no issue.

But in the morning, she is gone.

And so are my swords.

I know when I’ve met my match. But make no mistake, I will find her.

When I am done, both the swords and her lying, thieving body will be mine.

Book 5: Vigilante's Awakening is OUT!


The Vigilante's Awakening, Vigilantes #5

Mia never thought she’d kill a man. 

She’s been trained in ways she couldn’t have imagined back in her sheltered small-town days. Threat analysis. Interrogation. How to incapacitate someone double her size. 

And how to finish a job, however it must end. 

Her lover Jax, who was in line to take over the Vigilante network, seems to care more about his marriage proposal than their exciting life ahead. She makes him a promise: just one mission, and she’ll come back and answer his burning question. 

But she had no idea the job would be like this. Someone doesn’t want her to be a Vigilante, and even Jax and his powerful network can’t seem to protect her.

Is it really almost over?



It's been 10 months since Tony and I got the idea for Vigilante's Lover.

We were driving to the Romantic Times Convention in New Orleans, and I realized -- HEY, I have a meeting with an editor!

And I had no book to pitch!

We knew we couldn't easily offer up my series as JJ Knight, as it was already well under way. And I was also in the middle of my Forever series as Deanna Roy.

So we started all over with a new name and a new idea. Take Jason Bourne, whom we both loved, make him as slick and well-dressed as James Bond, and give him a kickin' romantic partner.

We came up with the initial idea during that car ride in May. While the editor loved it and wanted it, we ultimately decided a serial was a better format and started planning to release it on our own. At one point, we had an entire wall covered with notes and outlines so we could get a handle on the Vigilante world.

From May to October we outlined, researched, and argued over plot points. Future setting? Current? What about this jail that had Jax? How many letters? How long should they write each other?

We had to study knots and write letters that could work both as escape planning and love notes.

We wrote the series starting November 1 and finished it March 6.

We've had a blast.

The final book will come out in late March. After that, we're not sure what's in store for Jax and Mia. When you get to the end, you'll see we've left an opportunity for more story even though this particular plot line is completely wrapped up. Right now we're considering a possible single spin off called The Vigilante's Revenge in the fall.

We've loved meeting all the fans. Tony and I be together signing books at the Austin Author Affair in May and the Romance Writers of America Convention in New York in July. We hope to meet some of you!
