Cara Murphy is a New York City kindergarten teacher with a bright future and tenure on the horizon, and she won’t let anything—any man—distract her. She’s had her heart broken before, and she won’t make that mistake twice. She’s got her career to focus on, and being single has many, many advantages.
Noah Hughes is a firefighter with a charred heart who heats up every room he enters, but he lives solely for the happiness of his five-year-old son. When he crosses paths with Cara at a club, sparks fly, and they share a hot night of passion. But that flame is quickly doused during a surprise second encounter.
Continuing to see each other would truly be playing with fire, but Cara and Noah can’t stop. Still, Cara’s career is in jeopardy, and Noah’s heart is locked in guilt. Is there really a chance they could build a love that forever burns bright?

Bourbon, beads, and blood.
Phuck is the king of New Orleans. A demon who offers immortality for loyalty and respect. As president of the Voodoo Dawgs MC, he’s become as iconic to Nawlins’ citizens as the French Quarter. With Voodoo Mama and his brothers at his side, he’s untouchable, his power limitless. But when one of his demon brothers is discovered murdered, his life is about to be shaken up in ways he could’ve never anticipated.
Enzo is a sheriff, a shifter with a badge, who’s lost his power and the respect of the citizens of New Orleans. Betrayed by those he trusted, he’s fallen into disgrace, unable to remain sober long enough to pull himself together. When one of Phuck’s men is found dead, Enzo calls in the big guns to help solve the murder.
Panther shifter Detective Natalia Cortes arrives to investigate a demonic killing in NOLA. It’s not just any homicide, but the murder of a demon who happens to be part of the Voodoo Dawgs MC. The self-appointed King of New Orleans doesn’t want her there, but she feels his heated gaze. The sheriff needs her help to solve the case, but the more time he spends with her, the more he wants to claim her as his mate.
Welcome to the Dark Days and Voodoo Nights of New Orleans!

★★★★★ I LOVED THIS STORY! There is so much going on in this wonderful tale I just want to gush. This story features terrific world building, scary monsters, wicked villains, nasty politics and a strong determined heroine. Ariel has nothing on Amaryah.
-- In My Humble Opinion review
★★★★★ Amaryah is the ultimate heroine. She is up front with people, smart, and a total badass. This book pulls you in and doesn't let you go. -- Amazon review
★★★★★ Holy he!! This book was just wow. I loved it and was hooked. Not only do you have a good vs evil battle going on but a battle of class, ranking, and prejudice. Amaryah is a kick tail female and I absolutely loved her. -- Booked and Loaded review
Dark magic doesn’t die easily. Luckily, neither does she.
In a world racing toward extinction, the Siren Amaryah fights for survival. Under the plagued waters of Antarctica, she faces sea creatures mutated into predators by an old, dark magic. The frozen lands above are riddled with danger, as well, where Pirates, Magicians, and Islanders all vie for power.
A single Legacy Stone could change all that—it could bring back the world Amaryah lost. And she plans to find it. After all, if there’s nothing left to live for, she has nothing left to lose. Or so she thinks.
Dark magics have ways of fighting back, and she’ll face more threats than ever before—not least of all the possibility of a long-forbidden love.
A love she may have to sacrifice in order to save her world.

Thanksgiving... and TACOS!
Now that con season is over for majority of us authors, BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS! How are you celebrating this year? For the Morgan household, my mom is coming to visit and we're making... TACOS! Yes! Since it's only me, her and my daughter (with hubby on deployment) we thought, why not go different? So tacos it is! TACO DAY!
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Visiting family? Cooking the dinner for the first time? If you're alone this season, and you're in my neck of the woods, you have a seat at my table. Always. <3
This is my first year attending Penned Con. From what I heard, this was an amazing event, one that gives back to Autism awareness. If you know me, you know this is a very important topic in my life.
The event started Thursday with the arrival of authors and a few readers. Friday began the first of two signings, along with panels, key note speakers, etc. Unfortunately, due to travels whoas, I missed Friday's shindig during the day. That night though, there was a lip sync battle. I've never witnessed anything like this. Let me break it down for you!
Then more dancing... and some tears. A special young lady dressed up as Belle. A male model who has become good friends with her dressed up as the Prince. If you're not sure who I'm talking about, the young lady has special needs. Watching her dancing with the Prince (model) brought tears to my eyes while they danced to Beauty and the Beast. It was beautiful.
Saturday began the second book signing. There were so many people! I met new to me readers and finally met face to face with readers I've known for years! That was AMAZING!
Would I go back? Yes, absolutely. If you're on the fence about going, give it a shot. You've got nothing to lose and readers to gain.
I'm giving away a Kindle Fire HD 8 on Amazon! Come enter for a chance to win!
Be sure to share! The giveaway ends on July 27th! So hurry and get in on this!

Pregnancy and parenthood already bring a whole host of challenges, and those challenges might feel insurmountable to parents who have a disability. But research has shown that disabled parents feel greater levels of satisfaction at overcoming their personal limitations, especially after the births of their children.
Parenting with a disability does present some unique conundrums, and preparing ahead of time will let you focus your energy where it belongs—on your newest family member.
If you’re pregnant and have a disability that could interfere with a successful pregnancy, schedule a visit with your ob-gyn. Make sure you discuss:
● How your disability or medical condition might affect your growing baby as well as your own health.
● What medical tests might be required initially and throughout your pregnancy.
● How you’d like to approach the birth of your child. You’ll probably create plans A, B, and C—just like any expectant mother.
Prep your home
Being a parent does come with its share of trial and error, but there are a few things you can do before you’re home from the hospital with your newborn to smooth that transition and remove some of the worry:
● Install and/or test smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on each floor.
● Buy a fire extinguisher and store it in an easily accessible place.
● Store all medications securely out of sight and out of reach.
● Prepare and freeze meals that you can defrost and heat up when you don’t feel like cooking.
● Think about your physical limitations when you’re planning where to put your baby’s crib. It may be easier to have the crib next to your bed for less stressful nighttime feedings and diaper changes.
● It doesn’t hurt to babyproof your home before your little one joins the family. Here’s a list of 12 low-tech steps to take right now.
Adaptive baby gear
Babies require lots of equipment. If you’re vision-impaired, use tactile labels for items so they’re easy to identify. If you struggle with zippers or buttons, choose baby clothing that fastens with snaps or velcro.
If you use a wheelchair, purchase a wheelchair-accessible crib that operates via remote control. Bonus: These cribs work well for dressing a baby or changing diapers, too. Adaptive strollers for wheelchairs make it easier for parents with mobility issues to tote babies from their home to their car or to get around town or through the neighborhood.
Slings and wraps help you keep your baby close while keeping your hands free. With ring slings, wraps, and other structured carriers, there are plenty of options.
If you’re looking for more ideas, the national organization, Through the Looking Glass, provides exceptional resources for parents with disabilities.
Saving for IVF Treatments
According to Qunomedical, “The success and availability of in vitro fertilization have given hope to many infertile couples who have not been able to conceive. Since 1978, 5.4 million babies have been born worldwide with the help of IVF.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Survey of Family Growth, 6.9% of women—including those with physical disabilities—received some kind of fertility treatment between 2011 and 2015. That’s over 8 million women who undertook an emotional, expensive journey without the guarantee of a happy ending.
The majority of IVF patients assume financial responsibility for their treatments, although some insurances may cover a portion of the costs.
Unless you’re one of the lucky few whose insurance does cover treatments, you’ll likely need another plan. Financing options include:
● Fertility, credit union, and online personal loans
● Health savings accounts (HSA) or flexible spending accounts (FSA)
● Shared-risk or IVF refund programs, which help to recoup at least some of your costs if the treatments aren’t successful. Learn more about these programs here.
● Borrow cash from a home equity loan, retirement funds, or relatives. Do consider those financing options carefully.
Wherever you are in your parenthood journey, create a support network. Don’t hesitate to reach out and make connections. Friends, family, community organizations, and social services are valuable resources. Join online communities or support groups for other disabled parents. But most of all, enjoy the wild and crazy ride!
