There are a few fun things involved in being an author. You’re writing books. That’s cool enough. I love being able to write for a living. You are welcomed into someone else’s life to share your story. That’s big. The first time I heard someone sought me out because they wanted to read my book was a crazy, fun moment.
But there are a few things that aren’t so fun. One of them would have to be when a publishing house closes. You’ve got your works there. You want to keep them out. Most of all–at least in my case–you love your publisher and don’t want to see them close. But then it happens. Now what?
I ran into that problem. I have books with a pub that’s closed. Many publishers don’t want previously published stories. They want new works. Makes sense. New hasn’t been seen before. New is shiny. New is…new.
But those old stories aren’t bad. Some need updated. Some need help. Most don’t have anything wrong with them. They’re just stories that have been out already. Some have had large reader bases and some have had smaller ones. Some books just need another chance to get out there and be seen.
That’s where I’m at. I’ve got an entire series that’s aching to come out again. So that’s what I did. The whole series is coming out in October. Which? The Battle Scarred Series. Yes. I’m thrilled to have them back out again. It’s great.

When the rest of the world crumbles and fails, you have me.
Kynan Laing gave up his mortal soul to the will of the Sources, the ancient beings in charge of the universe. With the sensual grace and speed in his vampire form, he serves in his role as a Protector for the Supernatural world. But the impending war between the Supers and Hunters is heating up. The woman he’s charged to protect is all grown up and the perfect submissive partner he wants. Can he keep his heart under wraps while keeping her safe?
Alexa Mercury doesn’t know why she’s supposed to trust the vampire, but she does. Even when she pushed him away, Kynan watches over her. She craves him like no other and wants to submit body and soul to him, even if he is a Supernatural creature of the night. When circumstances beyond her control force them together, Lexa will have to decide whether to offer her heart to the vampire or risk her very soul.
This book was previously released and has been revamped for this edition.

Kynan closed the door to her room and enfolded her in his arms. He stroked her hair, breathing in the scent of her perfume. Watching her through the window paled in comparison to actually holding her.
“Stay with me tonight.” Lexa’s words curled around his heart. “I need you more than you know.”
“You have me,” he replied. She fit so perfectly against his body, like they’d been fated to be together. He thanked God and the forces who’d thrown them together. He kissed the top of her head. “You’re shaking.” Kynan carried her to the bed and cuddled her on his lap. Was their reuniting too much, too soon? Too bad.
“Don’t peer into my head.” Lexa rubbed his arm.
“I won’t.” Damn it. He’d spent so much time peering into the heads of humans he forgot what it was like to take someone on their word. “Tell me what’s upsetting you?” Besides her scary as hell ex happened to be a hunter and wanted him dead. “I’ll lay down my life for you.”
“You’re dead.” She tipped her gaze to his. His skin tingled from her touch on his arm. Most of the time he felt nothing. Now that he was with her, everything came into sharp focus. Her touch sizzled on his skin, and he longed for his heart to beat for her. He groaned.
“I don’t want to be alone.” Lexa kissed his neck, pressing her face to his jugular. “I want to feel loved, not like I’m a freak.”
“You’ve never been a freak.” Why should she feel that way? Because she liked kinky sex? Because she knew a vampire? Bullshit. “Tell me what you like.”
