Would you trust a curse to save you?
Ever since Sara Clarke was hit by lightning and began to see the future, she's lived a life on the run. Always hiding. Always hunted. She dreams of a different fate, but knows her only constant is the danger that stalks her. A lot of people want to harness what Sara can do and they aren't above forcing her to do their bidding.
Dragon Alec MacTeine has been locked in his human form by a centuries old curse. If he doesn't find his maiden, he'll never stretch his wings again. A chance encounter, one fleeting kiss and he knows that Sara is his. Meeting his maiden is supposed to solve all his problems, but instead, it spawns new ones.
Sara is the key to Alec's freedom, but first he has to convince her that he can set her free too, both from the people that want to own her and from the voice that uses her as a conduit to the future. AmazonBarnes and Noble iTunes

While ghost hunting in a haunted prison, Cassandra finds herself transported into the memories of Andrew Smith, a handsome man wrongfully accused of murdering his fiancé. His ghost lingers in a prison cell, aching for his lost love. Before long, she finds herself playing the role of his lover, reliving a seductive and passionate affair more than a hundred years old.

Three nights to ravish her body, one curse to shatter her heart...
A magic locket brings the demon Khan into Selena Connor's life--and bed--just in the nick of time. Her fiancé's stolen her life savings, she faces crushing debts, and her boss is trying to harass her into his bed. When Khan appears, his dark magic unlocks the deepest secrets of her body and heart. His touch ignites a burning desire that bends Selena to his will and erases all her cares.
But Khan's curse binds him to the locket's owner for only three nights of soul-searing pleasure, and just as Selena realizes she can't live without him, Khan vanishes. Reality comes crashing in: Selena's boss has framed her to take the fall for his crimes. If she refuses his advances now, it's jail. She may as well be cursed herself.
With nothing left to lose, Selena takes a leap of faith. Only one man--Khan--will ever truly possess her. And maybe she's the one woman who can free him.
Today, a snippet from a historical paranormal romance novella, Dragon's Maiden. Estimated publication, November (dependent on my editor's schedule).
Blurb for context:
Thou shalt not meddle
in the affairs of dragons…
Alana is just like any other maiden, waiting for her dragon
to come... until Queen Elizabeth declares both dragons and maidens in Scotland
be destroyed! Now, instead of flirting with dragons in search of her mate, Alana
is running for her life.
Cleverly disguised as a nun, Alana hides in a convent,
watching as her future burns to ashes, but just when she thinks all the dragons
are gone, a dangerous and destructive one strikes in the dead of night, laying
waste to both the convent and her hopes.
The maiden has finally been claimed, and while she should be
thrilled, her captor is far from the dragon of her dreams. Her descent into danger
has just begun, but unbeknownst to her, Alana's quest for her true mate has
“Do I amuse you, sir?” I said, my voice
He didn't answer, but walked toward me,
his stride long. I forced myself not to retreat at his advance. He came so
close I could smell the sun on his skin and see the pulse at his throat.
Uncertainty stirred in my gut. What were his intentions? Could I really trust
James leaned forward, his expression
intense. I tensed as his face came closer and closer to mine. Was he going
Before I could turn away, he snatched
something from my hair and then stepped back. I gulped in the air that filled
the emptiness he left behind.
Holding up a small twig, he said, “This
was stuck in yer hair.”
“Thank ye, James.”
He gave a solemn nod. “Ye must keep yer
appearance, m’lady.” He pointed to his head. “Leaves in yer hair and they will
wonder where ye lay yer head.” Nodding to my discarded stockings and shoes, he
added, “If yer clothing is out of place, they will question it. Ye must be
verra careful here, lass.”
“I canna do this,” I blurted out.
“This.” I waved to my clothes lying on
the ground. “I’m no liar, sir. I canna be a spy.”
“Then what will ye do, maiden?” He
asked, addressing me formally for the first time. “Our ways are dying. If we
donna protect them, there will be nothing left.”
“Is there no hope of raising more
dragons?” It seemed simple enough to me. Raise another army and put the English
back in their place.
James shook his head. “Nay, lass. They
burned the mages, too and the books. The queen is even writing history anew.
She replaces truth with a false revision. In a generation, no one will even
remember the magic or the dragons.”
“But she has a dragon still.” I perched
on a fallen tree, feeling the need for some support. The things James said meant
the end of the whole world I’d grown up in. I couldn't fathom it.
“Aye, but Lord Kendrick does not ken
that he has lost her favor. She willna support his plans.”
“Then what am I to do?” An image filled my mind of the bairns Lord
Kendrick would force on me and their certain to be difficult life. If James was
right, Lord Kendrick was on the wrong side of politics, which I knew to be dangerous.
“Defeat Scotland’s enemies. Avenge the
fallen. Save what we can.” James went to where Epona stood and rummaged through
the saddlebags until he found the food and wine I’d tucked away.
“How did ye know that was there?” I
“I watched ye from the stable.” Uncorking
the bottle, he offered it to me. “It was the stable boy’s first time serving a
lady. I wanted to make sure he did it right.”
“And that no one saw us together.” I
took a long swig, wishing it were a stronger drink. Whiskey would have been
“Aye, that too,” he said with a chuckle.
I handed the bottle to him. “I didna
think I would end up like this, James. I was meant to marry a Highland dragon, be his
wife, bear his bairns.”
“Did ye think I wanted to serve a Lord
of England?” James snorted. “We have been brought low, true, but our purpose is
high. I will do what must be done. Will ye?”
From Turned, a vampire story I'm currently trying to finish up.
They arrived at midnight and none of
them signed the guest book. Fuckers. That had cost me fifty bucks. I stood in
the back of the room where the memorial service would take place, sunglasses
hiding my eyes and tried to be as insignificant as possible, but their gazes
still sought me out anyway.
They could probably hear my heart beat
from across the room. I suppressed a shiver and gestured toward the refreshments.
I didn’t smile. I wasn’t their friend. Dad was dead because of them.
Donor blood filled a crystal punch bowl
and there were wine glasses with thin, elegant stems. The glassware was a
rental from the funeral home. They supplied the blood, too. I didn’t ask where
they’d found it. The line between willing donor and unwilling victim was often
blurry. Some blood dealers called it consent if a victim didn’t complain after
they’d been held down and forcibly relieved of a pint.
I watched as the last of them filed in.
There were more than I’d expected. At least twenty. Some nodded toward me,
acknowledging my existence. Others ignored me and a few watched me like they
wanted to sink their fangs in my neck. The men wore dark suits and the women favored
black sheath dresses with extra high heels.
The chaplain, a bald squat vampire the
funeral home had hired for the service, gave everyone time to fill a glass with
blood and find a seat before clearing his throat. I’d been assured he would say
all the right things…to the vampires.

One beach vacation, too many Mr. Rights....now what?
If I had to choose my two favorite covers from all my books I would have to go with these two...
I guess I really like the color blue! BUT I do have one other cover to share and it's red...
This cover is from a boxed set of BDSM romance that contains one of my stories. His every touch an imprint, His ever word a potent command. To become His--both body and soul--is not to be owned, it is to be truly accepted. To belong.
In case we've never met before....Hi. I'm Michelle Fox and I write a lot of werewolf romance and the occasional contemporary love story. Let me introduce you to some of my favorite Alphas.
Meet Tao. A wolf in the woods and a beast in the sheets. He's the star of my most recent novel, First Moon. (Available on Amazon, Nook, Kobo and Googleplay.)
Meet Jackson from my novel The Alpha's Mate. Jackson is a wolf who loses his heart to the girl no one is supposed to love. Once he claims her as his, the real fight for their happily-ever-after starts. (Available on Amazon, Nook, Kobo and Googleplay.)
If you like action/adventure with a side of intrigue, take a chance on alpha hero Blake Cannon. On the surface he appears to be a magician working the circus circuit and trying to make a career, but when costume designer Ruby Palmer spends one, unforgettable night with Blake, she learns he's a man of many secrets...some of them dangerous enough to get her killed. You can read the first book in the series FREE on Amazon.com
I am also excited to share that I'm part of a boxed set releasing next week. Top 100 Reasons to Love is a boxed set packed exclusively with bestseller books featuring bad boys, billionaires and alphas who know how to make a woman howl. Because every book in this set reached the top of the bestseller lists, you know they are already reader approved. Even better, you can scoop the set up for 99 cents, saving you a ton of money.
However, the boxed set won't be 99 cents for long, so don't miss the release date of 4/15 to get the best price. If you want a reminder, subscribe to my newsletter as I'll be sending out an email on release day (plus you'll get a free read just for signing up!).
