Vixen is cool, interesting, in control. Too bad that Vixen is really Esther, a werewolf with aspirations to better things. In an attempt to spice up her life, she decides to visit The Fold, a nightclub with a dubious reputation. The place is notorious, as well as being the monthly starting point for The Hunt. When The Hunt goes wrong, Esther's rescuer is someone much closer to her heart than she ever suspected. What she's actually hunting for isn't Vixen, but Gregor, the wolf, and man, of her dreams.

Gregor has loved Esther ever since he can remember. He doesn't even hold the fact she changed him into a werewolf against her. In fact, he perceives it as an advantage—nobody understands Esther the way he does. When Esther gets tired of playing it safe, and disappears to join in The Hunt, Gregor goes after her to stop her before she does something she will forever regret.

Debra Kayn on "Betraying the Prince" New at Red Rose Publishing!

One of the highest compliments a writer can get is having a reader admit to laughing out loud, crying, sighing, getting angry or whatever the emotion is that you want conveyed in the words that you use.

This past Thursday, I had my first book, Betraying the Prince, published. To my surprise, Fiona Vance, author of Submission, bought my book and sent me an email with the following review which made my day.

Wow, what a great book! I just loved the Antakian princess, Celina, who comes to the US from a middle eastern kingdom with different rules and customs, and stirs up the hero, Drake. I just loved the fishing boat scene… LOL! Drake is a yummy hero, and there’s an underlying mystery that Celina has to solve to learn about who she is and what she wants… and Drake is just the man to help her. And then you’ll cry as hard as you laughed. This book had me up until 2:30 this morning, because I couldn’t put it down! …Fiona Vance, Author of Submission

Betraying the Prince is available now at Red Rose Publishing.


Excerpt #3

“Let’s get this party started.” Drake bowed at the waist. “Do you want to dance, Princess Celina?”

She nodded without breaking eye contact. Her breath came in a desperate rhythm at the thought of him holding her. She wrapped her arms around his neck. The music played soft, slow. His arms held her, pressed her up against his chest. The motion of her dress against his stiff dress coat added to the friction sparking within her. Her hips took on a movement all their own, resembling the left, circle, right of the only kind of dancing she knew.


She lifted her head off Drake’s chest. She caught the musky scent of his cologne, and the wildest urge to bury her nose in his neck to inhale the very essence of him hit her.

“Will you wait after the party?”

“Of course. I will do anything you ask of me.”

The arm holding Celina flinched, and Drake stopped moving his feet. She stood in the middle of the room with her arms still around him.

“What’s wrong? Did I say something?”

“No. It isn’t you. I need to know if you understand what I am asking you. You do want to be with me, right?”

“Of course….” Celina couldn’t finish; Drake’s finger came up to touch her lips.

“That’s not what I mean. I only want you to wait for me if it is what you want to do. Not because you were taught to please a man. It’s okay to say no.”

Celina stepped back. Drake’s arms fell to his sides. She cocked her head and frowned. Didn’t he understand?

Lady Juliet De Mar is a confirmed bachelorette and a member of the exclusive London Literary Club, a secret sex club for the more libidinous of the London ton.

After taunting her childhood friend and wealthy sea captain, James Wakefield, with the club's bondage games, she finds herself once again longing for him to be something other than he is--a prude with no interest in sex. At least not with her. Tired of his annual visits that always end in rejection, Juliet decides to kidnap him and bring him to his knees--and to the altar--or end their acquaintance forever.

But her plan backfires when she's kidnapped herself and taken to the docks. Blindfolded and shackled, she becomes the property of a notorious pirate, the murderous Captain Black, purchased for his pleasure.

When her deepest, erotic fantasies become a dangerous reality, will Juliet be forced into submission?

Or will she learn what she needs to know to master James?

Is the dragon more than Policeman Colley can handle or will she teach him to fly high?

Ryon Colley can't understand what's happening to his life. This morning he was a policeman investigating a potential hazard: a sparking, flashing, rainbow-spitting light show in the sky overhead. The source of the odd light appeared to be an unruly-haired blonde hellion, who couldn't figure out what normal was. Her radiant display scared him, but his physical reaction to it scares him more. By lunchtime he's gone from having coarse brown hair, to sporting a head full of blond locks—and from facing felons, to fending off thousands of voracious dragonflies.

Glynt has been sent to Earth to guard the dimensional gateways, but her arrival spawns nothing but trouble. Quite accidentally, she's summoned swarms of dragonflies, and lured in captors determined to return her—clearly a mischief maker—to her own world. Only Ryon—her gilded hero and the object of her newfound dreams—can rescue her from certain death.

Can Ryon keep the fire burning in her or will it fade out?
