CAUGHT: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance

She trusted him with her future. How could she have known it was her heart she had to protect…

The Vampire Blood Courtesans.
It's not supposed to be about love...until it is.

I know stealing is wrong but those poor, forgotten children needed my help. I had no other choice. For a few short weeks, I made a real difference.But my luck ran out. In the blink of an eye, I went from an angel of mercy to a mouse caught in a trap.

Now, I have a choice to make…give up everything I’ve ever known or trust a vampire to make it all go away.
He says he can give me back my life, my career…everything I’ve worked so hard to achieve.
But there’s a price…

In a world where blood is a commodity and sex is the prize, this cold, aloof vampire is my only way out…or is he?

Be sure to check out the photos under the CREWSADERS tab for updated pictures fans have sent me. They're wearing Shiv Crew shirts and they look AMAZING!
Keep sending me photos, guys. I've gotten pictures of you guys in the shirts, holding the books, wearing Rune for Halloween, even fan art!
I love them all.

To give you an update on the writing progress, I'm currently working hard on getting Rune Alexander #10 finished. I posted an excerpt in the Shiv Crew group--mainly because I'd pulled an April Fools' Day joke that wasn't too funny, haha. I informed the group that I was no longer writing Rune Alexander, but instead was going to concentrate on a romantic comedy about a gardener and her love for a garden gnome who was hiding from the law.

Some of them believed me, which made me feel pretty bad. (And amused, but we won't talk about that :D )

I don't actually know when I'll be ending the RA series, but I'm pretty sure there'll be a couple more before it's over.

As soon as #10 is finished I'll concentrate more on Forsaken 2 and Waifwater 2--I'm working on them now, but in bits and pieces and pretty slowly.

The weather is amazing today, and between the sunshine and the giraffe watching, it's hard to concentrate! But concentrate I will--I'll ignore the sunshine and get away from YouTube. But seriously. Come ON, April! :D

Off to work. Talk with you guys soon!

"I think that everyone, at one point, goes through a period, or periods, of time where they just need an escape. My escape is books. It's one I have been using since I was a child.

I started reading about Rune and Shiv Crew by accident. I was checking out my recommendations on Goodreads, and it just popped up.

It was February, 2014. I had some troubles. Pervasive depression, anxiety, family craziness, severe family illnesses. I blew through the first three books at warp speed. Then I waited for Obsidian Wings, and New Regime.

New Regime, I read that one just when I needed it. I lost someone important to me, and it helped me escape, literally days after the funeral. Now, all the way up through Killing Land - Rune still helps me escape.

When I don't want to think about nurses, lost loved ones, responsibility, panic attacks, or bills - I read. And yeah, it might sound a little odd to some people to say that a dark urban fantasy character helps - but she does.

She doesn't stop. She doesn't give up - even when truly horrible stuff is happening to her, or around her. I like to think that we can absorb some of that if/when we need it. Words have power, even if it's just the power to make you think, "I got this".

So thanks Rune, and Laken :)"
