Happy New Year, Earthlings!

What fabulous book are you reading to kick off 2022 in style? I hope you’ve got room in your e-reader, because I’ve got a boatload of free reads for you below. As well as an AMAZING book rec this month—an absolutely SMOKING MM fae fantasy standalone by one of my favorite authors ever! I did my Christmas reading lying on the beach in Florida. Here’s a pic of Steven & me, cutely attired in matching sweatshirts (cuz it was cold that day!) buying hats at Disney Springs. 😊

In other news, Houston, we are at T minus 24 days until my steamy MMMF sci fi series climax ATOMIC ANGEL blasts into orbit! 

In a race through space against five hundred sexed-up suitors, a galactic mating contest is nearing its lethal climax. Get ready for a rebel princess, an atomic arsenal, and three heroes hot enough to singe a cybergirl’s circuits! Together, the space pirates’ hellraising head honcho, the ice-cold imperial enforcer who stalks him, and the galaxy’s most lethal telepath will rule at her side—and consummate their blazing passion in her bed. 

And that consummation is the longest, steamiest smexy scene I have EVER written. As in…ever. One-click like the fate of the planet depends on it! 🌎



If you’re reading along as I publish these babies, I’m dying to know if you have a favorite character. Is it Dex, Kaia, Nero or Zorin, or maybe someone else in the Astral Heat series?  I definitely have one who’s my favorite to write, the one who’s the most fun, whose voice I hear the most clearly in my head. Tell me your favorite Astral Heat character by January 21, and I’ll send one lovely reader a $10 Amazon gift card!

I’ll tell you my favorite next month, and also let you know which character wins this popularity poll, and give a shout-out to the gift card winner!

Okay, I’ll admit I read a boatload of M/M romance, but Ariana writes the most luscious erotic M/M fantasy romance EVER. This smoking star-crossed enemies-to-lovers liaison between doomed human nobleman Bryce LeChoix and the dark and terrible fae trickster Raoul is absolutely to die for, and scorching hot, with incendiary M/M action. Plus there’s an MMMM scene that must have raised my core body temperature twenty degrees. Do yourself a favor and read this one!

Interstellar Broadcast: Celebrating New Year on the International Space Station!

Did you know the astronauts on the ISS experience 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets every day? Cool, right? The ISS is on Greenwich Mean Time, so the ball dropped for them five hours earlier than it did in Times Square. This year, they’re not alone out there, because three Chinese astronauts also celebrated on the Tiangong space station, which is under construction in orbit.

Check out the first sunrise of 2022 shot from 282 miles in orbit above Bolivia here!



Thanks for sticking with me, Earthlings! Happy New Year to all, and may the Force be with you!
