Hi everyone. It’s been a lovely week for writing. I knocked out 10k on the sequel to Cat Nip. In light of that, I’m sharing first lines from Hunter’s Pride, Jinx 2. (This is an unedited snippet and who knows where it might end up in final draft). I dropped off some eggs at the El Diablo Saloon early this morning and visited Langdon Mars afterward. The bar owner’s condition is worse and though each individual healing temporarily replenishes him, the periods in between his need are shorter. In the process of...read more
Hi everyone. What a busy week! The weather here screams FALL and though I am writing, writing, writing, I want to spend as much time outside as possible before we have to hunker down for winter. I hope things are going well for all of you. I’m sharing another snippet from Cat Nip to celebrate this week’s release. After the others emptied the streets of Willow Springs, Hunter returned to the El Diablo for a chat with Mars. He didn’t waste time on niceties when he found the saloon owner perched on a bar stool nursing a glass of...read more

Hi everyone. I hope you are all having a fun summer. Today, I’m continuing last week’s scene from Cerise Amour, my Unlikely Gentlemen 2.5 series title. Before Cherry knew what to expect, Jeb tugged the blanket from her, exposing her bare body. “Give it back,” she said and tried to grab the cover. “Nope, you’ve seen me; now I’ll see you.” Instinctively, she threw one arm across her breasts and used her other hand to cover the soft nest of curls at the juncture of her thighs. Whether on purpose or accident, she couldn’t tell; but...read more

Hi everyone. I’m giving a big old WOOT, WOOT! this weekend and posting from Cerise Amour, my Unlikely Gentlemen 2.5 title that released last Wednesday. Jeb ducked into the tent, sweeping Cherry inside with him. He was tense, as anxious to stay with her as he was to leave. “I’ll be fine,” she tried to reassure him, but tears filled her eyes and spilled over. He thumbed one away; then, although he had no business doing it, he leaned closer and brushed his lips across hers. She didn’t kiss him so much as cling to him, her arms going...read more
Hey all, *waving*. I’m excited to be in this hop with so many other great authors. For friends who stop by this weekend to say hello, nice seeing you again, I hope your summer is going well. For those who’ve landed here and aren’t familiar with my work, let me introduce myself. I’m Gem Sivad. Though I enjoy writing all genres, at the moment I’m engaged in two steamy historical romance series (Eclipse Heat @ Ellora’s Cave and Unlikely Gentlemen @ Dark Mountain Books). My most recent title released, Cerise...read more

He everyone. Ready for a little more witchery and adventure? Here’s the first eight lines from the next installment of Cat Nip. Forgive the creative punctuation. “Does evil bleed?” Hunter growled. “If you mean do I fear a person— sort of a person, I added mentally— than the answer is, yes.” “What sort of a person threatens you?” he mocked my words as if he’d read my mind. Shivering in spite of the warm night and the man next to me radiating heat, I whispered,“A warlock skilled in black arts.” “I protect you now and I am...read more
