Jo at Joyfully Reviewed says"Storm Warning is packed full of fast action, suspense, and passion all wrapped up in a multi-angled plot that will keep you on your toes."
Former helicopter pilot DJ Poe is a woman used to working in a man’s world and comfortable as SSI’s first female field operative. It’s her instant attraction to the company’s computer specialist that has her questioning her ability to overcome her past and develop an intimate relationship with a man.
Stuart “Tweeter” Walsh already admired DJ for saving his brother's life in Afghanistan, but when the tall, leggy, blonde goddess joins SSI, he falls instantly in love. All he has to do is convince the man-shy beauty to take a chance on him.
Take one alpha-male geek, add in one skittish female warrioress—throw them into close proximity and you have the perfect conditions for storm warnings.

A Prime Chronicles Short Story Out Now!
Jo at Joyfully Reviewed says "Prime Claiming might be a short story, but it has all the romance you could ask for between two strong and determined people who became mates."
In Prime Imperative, Bria's research assistant Cheri Stafford discovered in Chapter 14 that she was mate-bonding with Lt. Zaek Magga, one of Iolyn's computer engineers. By the time, the Galanti reached Cejuru Prime in Chapter 15, Cheri was bonded and had a gemate mark.
Prime Claiming is the story of how Cheri and Zaek's final bonding occurred.
Where? In the Galanti's simulation room.
When? Three days after they met.
How? During a simulation program which depicts a time before mating marks and when Prime males bartered for or stole their mates.
Results? - A hot Prime claiming.
Warriors from the planet Cejuru Prime are renowned throughout the galaxy for their strength and fighting ability. And when they meet their mate, they bond for life.
Like all Prime males, Lieutenant Zaek Magga had searched forever for his mate…but he never expected her to be a Terran. Unfortunately, no Terran would be prepared for the reality of the carnal bonding process between a Prime male and his chosen mate. He decides to move very slowly.
Cheri Stafford never expected to be a Prime warrior’s mate. But she is. At first, she’s thrilled, then…confused. After seeing how other Prime males act with their mates, Cheri doesn’t understand why Zaek is holding her at arm’s length. Doesn’t he want her? He hasn’t even kissed her properly.
But when Cheri uses all her womanly wiles to get Zaek to move, she discovers how thoroughly an extremely dominant male warrior will claim his female.

Her research can save them from extinction.
Her Blood makes her one of them.
A few want to kill her.
One man will do all he can to save her.
Adopted and raised by Terrans, Dr. Brianna Martin never quite fit in. Finding out she’s a long-lost female of the Prime race, she’s thrilled. And she has a mate living somewhere on Prime—one genetically destined to be hers alone. Before she figures out how to approach him, she’s attacked in her research lab.
Iolyn Caradoc is stunned at the news that his mate, matched to him soon after birth, still lives. Even more amazing, she’s a research scientist on the verge of discovering why the Prime race is dying. But pure-blood fanatics are trying to kill her and she’s on the run. Every primal instinct in him insists he find, claim, and protect his mate. But the woman won’t stay put.
When Bria finally meets Iolyn, she’s thrilled. He’s everything she could want—physically strong, highly intelligent, and … the other half of her soul. Yet, he’s also an overwhelmingly dominant and stubborn Prime warrior who wishes to protect her from everything—including her own Prime nature. As a Prime battle-mate, she has newfound instincts and skills—ones that will make her a true warrior. Ones she fully intends to learn and use.
If she manages to survive.

What I'm Working On Now(updated 1/4/2016):
First of all, Happy New Year!!
Hot as Hell, SSI Book 4.5, is in progress and near the point I can send it to my number one critique partner and several beta-readers. After that, it will probably need another total rewrite (yes, I am Type-A). So, it is close, but not yet. I blame the holiday craziness and eye surgery on holding me back.
Once the novella-length Hot as Hell is up, I will jump into An Ill Wind, SSI Book 5, Trey and Fee's book. This story began in Stormy Weather Baby (Note: Stormy Weather Baby is a free novella, just in case you want to see how Trey and Fee first met).
There will be another SSI novella (#5.5) out in the Fall of 2016, can't announce any details yet since the specifics for the launch haven't been nailed down. But I can say it will be Price Teague's story and novella to short novel in length. Yes, I am evil.
As you can see, I have a lot of writing and editing on my plate for 2016. Cross all your fingers, toes and any hypermobile appendages that my family's health and welfare don't throw me any curveballs this year and I might just get it all done without having a crisis of nerves. 2015 was a rough year for me in writing.
Plus, I STILL would like to re-release my Dream Realm finalist book, Green Fire, which has been out of print since 12/2005. It was an e-book and trade paper release from the former LTDBooks in Canada. It needs a good copy edit before I'll feel comfortable re-releasing it.
And, yes, there will be more books in the Prime Chronicles world. Just not soon. Think more mid-2017. Damon and Susa still aren't telling me their whole story yet.
Just a note:
