Are you ready to join the hunt?

paranormal romance boxed set

Prince in Leather interracial fantasy romanceIn case you missed it (which is probable given the pace of social media), Masters of the Hunt is available now, and with it, my book Prince in Leather. That book is spun off from The Afótama Legacy–just in case series are your preference.

For 99¢, you get 17 romance, fantasy, and urban fantasy books featuring the baddest hunters in all the realms.

Get it at one of these places, if you dare:

We’re partying next week!

Join us on Facebook Thursday June 11th for our new release celebration. There’ll be party games and door prize. I’ll be hanging out all day being a legendary party troll (as always). I’ll be giving away a e-giftcard. (If you’ve read Prince in Leather, you’ll know why that makes sense.

Get the Afótama books for cheap this month!

I’ve discounted both The Viking Queen’s Men and The Chieftain’s Daughter to 99¢ because my fairy thug Heath appears in both. You don’t have to read them in order, but it can’t hurt. The books are in a single continuity, and the series will continuously intertwine.
The Viking Queen's Men contemporary paranormal menage romance by Holley TrentThe Chieftains Daughter mmf paranormal romance
None of these books are particularly short (as far as romance goes), so they’ll keep you distracted for a few days, at least.


10 shifter bites (and they don’t even hurt)

I couldn’t let the day go by without announcing this release here (because I have another one tomorrow), so check it out!
shapeshifter romance anthology
First Bite contains ten first episode/first in series shapeshifter romances, including my novella Beast. Beast is the first of four Norseton Wolves stories, all of which will release this summer. The whole series takes place the summer after the end of The Chieftain’s Daughter, for those of you following along in the Afótama Legacy.

You can get the boxed set EXCLUSIVELY at Amazon right now (it’s also in the Unlimited subscription program), or on its own if you’re a bit of a commitophobe. Either way, it’ll cost you the same 99¢. I suggest you buy the bundle as it’s only going to be available for a limited time.

Get it here.

For those of you reading on other devices, look for a wide release of Beast, as well as the other Norseton Wolves stories, this fall.


A fairy in leather. [Proof is in the picture.]

Y’all. I’ve been sitting on this cover for so long. Prince in Leather is due out in the Masters of the Hunt boxed set in about eleven days, and I don’t think I’ve ever waited this long to upload art.

I couldn’t wait any longer because I’m sending out ARCs very soon. Plus, every time I clicked into that folder on my computer, I twitched with impatience, so, nfoj8qurpewnj8, I’m sharing it!!!!!

Here’s Heath:

Prince in Leather interracial fantasy romance
(Cover by Fiona Jayde. She’s awesome.)

If you’ll think back to The Chieftain’s Daughter, you’ll remember Heath is Ollie’s second cousin (or something). I’m pretty sure I explain the family tree in one of these books, but anyway. I didn’t delve much into Heath’s background because I had stuff planned for him, but in Prince in Leather, you’ll find out what he’s about. I like to think of him as a bit of an antihero, but I’ll let you all decide if that’s what he is.

I don’t really know what to say about this book, because it’s another one that’s hard to categorize. It’s fantasy (I guess) because it’s partially set in an imagined realm, but I suppose it tastes a lot like my paranormal romances. It’s mostly set in North Carolina at a dinky little beach motel called The Hearth.

PiL is a book with a big external conflict, my usual dark humor, and…possibly some kink. (I don’t even know if it’s kinky. I might be desensitized.)

Check back soon for information about how to get Prince in Leather, or just subscribe to my paranormal romance new release alert emails to make your life 0.05% easier.


ICYMI: A Den of Sin collection (for cheap) and an MMF up for preorder

M Collection mm mmf erotic romance
For some damn reason, I always forget to post new release news on my own blog. X-(

In case you missed it, my Den of Sin series MMF and MM erotic romance bundle, M Collection, is now available for purchase. Not only that, but it’s only 99¢ through 5/25. On 5/26, the price will go up to $1.99. $2.99 on 6/2, $3.99 on 6/9, and then it’ll settle in at its final price of $4.99 on 6/16.

It contains three existing Den novellas plus a story I wrote especially for the bundle. Shame and a Disgrace is a Storafalt crossover story featuring the characters Phil and Landon from Teaching the Cowboy. It is exclusive to M Collection until 6/15, and then you’ll be able to purchase it on its own…for 99¢ (see how that math works out? You can’t beat that bundle price).

Buy M Collection at one of these places:

And speaking of Den of Sin stories, I’m pleased to announce a series first–a novel!

One in Waiting MMF erotic romance

One in Waiting is another Reedsville Roosters story (like Winterball) and has a Beaudelaire heroine. It’ll be out the last Tuesday in June.

You can preorder it now at Amazon (it’ll be more widely available closer to release), or sign up for my contemporary romance new release alerts to get an email when it’s released.


Free books! (Slight catch.)

I just realized I have final versions of both Beast and Prince in Leather from the two Afótama Legacy spin-off series.

They’re both set after The Chieftain’s Daughter ends (well, technically, Prince in Leather‘s beginning overlaps with TCD‘s end).

Both Prince in Leather and Beast stand alone perfectly well–they’re series starters, after all–BUT because they’re set in an existing world, I wanted to let Afótama Legacy readers have the first chance at reading them (and reviewing them).

So, here’s the deal. If you’ve read both The Viking Queen’s Men and The Chieftain’s Daughter and have reviewed them both somewhere online–honor system here, I’m not going to check–I’ll send you early copies of the two new stories (right after I format them).

Want them? All you have to do is fill out this quick and dirty form. The form closes 5/17, so don’t delay in signing up.


Kindle users – grab BACK TO STORAFALT today for free!

Back to Storafalt small town romance by Holley TrentNearly forgot I scheduled that promo. Sheesh.

If you’re in the mood for a quick, sexy, small town romance read that’s high on the snark scale, download Back to Storafalt. It’s available exclusively at Amazon for the moment.

While the novelette is part of the larger Storafalt world, it can be read on its own.

I’m still toiling away, trying to get Teaching the Cowboy re-released. I’d hoped to get it out mid-May, but I’m in a bit of a paranormal bottleneck right now and will possibly have to push it back a few weeks. I could have re-released it as was in the previous edition, but I needed to go back in and plant some seeds about future stories and do some extra world-building to make sure the world’s expansion is limitless. I promise–it’ll be worth the wait.

I guess I’m offering this story as a consolation prize. 😀

Grab it here!


Don’t forget this son! (A Sons of Gulielmus freebie)

Sons of Gulielmus cheap paranormal romance ebooks
I released the free bonus story A Demon Found almost a year ago, but I figured it was time for me to point new readers to the series to it. It’s is the only Sons of Gulielmus story not included in the Demons Undone collection. That’s because it it was too short to submit, and I wanted there to be some free series content available to incentivize readers to give my misunderstood half-incubi a try. I worried folks would think the series was a lot darker than it actually is. It’s pretty damned quirky.

It’s still free everywhere (or should be), but you have to get it on its own, ‘k? When you pick up Demons Undone, add A Demon Found to your e-reader, too. Read ADF between A Demon in Love and A Demon Bewitched.

Some news about Sons of Gulielmus (and the sons of…Floyd?)

Demons Undone paranormal romance bundleIn case you missed it, the Sons of Gulielmus Demons Undone bundle containing A Demon in Waiting, A Demoness Matched, A Demon in Love, A Demon Bewitched, and An Angel Fallen, released last Monday. It’s a buck! (F’real.)

I would have blogged about it, but I was on a boat somewhere in the eastern Caribbean with no Internet access. I’m back in Colorado now where it’s a chilly 52 degrees with a itchy sunburn souvenir. (Still trying to figure out how I got sunburn right beneath my armpit.)

You might note that unlike some of the other Crimson Romance series bundles, Demons Undone doesn’t have “The Complete Series” or similar verbiage on the cover. That’s because…well…it’s not. It’s a complete arc, but the series itself is ongoing.

I just sent the contract in for more stories set in this world, so now’s the perfect time to tell you what to expect next.

Ellery Colvard Sons of Gulielmus<--Remember this chick from A Demon Bewitched? I can’t say much without being super-duper spoilerific for the folks still working through the demon arc, but she’s the heroine of the next book. She’s still a hot mess–don’t worry–but simply has a whole new set of problems. One of those problems is furry. And has a tail. And possibly purrs when he’s excited.

Just like in the Sons of Gulielmus arc, in this new set of stories–which I’m calling Desert Guards–I’ve got a trio of brothers. This time, they’re not half demons, but were-cougars. You’ll see those demon dudes popping in again, though. After all, they left a wee little mess at the end of A Demon Bewitched they didn’t know the repercussions of, and of course, what goes around comes around. You’ll see the impact in this new set of stories AND find out what I did to Gulielmus. (Oh, I’ve got something planned for him. I’ve just gotta work my way up to it. I can’t redeem an asshole of his caliber so quickly, now can I?)

I’ll have news about release dates and whatnot soon. If you subscribe to my paranormal romance newsletter, you’ll get an email telling you about my new books during their release weeks. I’ve got a bunch of spicy paranormal coming out between now and early fall, so let me do the remembering for you, ‘kay?


End-of-Month Roundup (3/15 edition)

Welcome to the end-of-month roundup! For the uninitiated, this is where I brain-dump all the stuff that’s going on (when I can remember). Whoosh.


Holley Trent Twitter1. I changed my Twitter avatar. I mention this only because I know how disorienting it can be to see unfamiliar profile images show up in my profile. Makes me do a double-take, like “Wut?”

I’d tell you the back story behind that picture, but it’s more [for me] to let you ponder. I will say that if you have a sudden impulse to watch the “Uptown Funk” video, you shouldn’t try to suppress it.


Seeing Red erotic contemporary romance by Holley Trent2. Looks like Seeing Red is free at some places. I don’t know for how long, so grab it where you can get it. Surprise!

You don’t have to read the Hearts and Minds books in order. Each stands alone. There’s no background plot carrying over like in my other series, BUT the characters do all show up in each others’ books. Just in case you like that sort of thing.

Get Seeing Red here:
Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iBooks


Demons Undone paranormal romance bundle3. Here’s that extra-secret coming soon I’ve been hinting at for months. That’s right! All of my Sons of Gulielmus stories published through Crimson Romance will be available in the limited time Demons Undone bundle on April 13…and it’s priced at less than a buck. I won’t do the math to tell you how much you’ll save by buying it that way, but suffice it to say buying them at full price would cause a pretty substantial dent to your book budget.

As of right now, the bundle is available for preorder at these places:
Amazon | Google Play | iBooks | Kobo

Order it now so you’ll have a bunch of sexy, foul-mouthed paranormal anti-heroes on your e-reader when you wake up on the 13th. I’ll update to add links to other vendors as soon as I have them.


4. In case you missed it on Thursday, the newest batch of RWA RITA and Golden Heart award finalists are listed here.

Congratulations to all the talented authors advances to the next round, and a HUGE, hearty pat on the back for everyone brave enough to even toss their work into the fray. I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t read any of the books on the finalist list (look–I read a lot of fringe stuff, okay?), but I plan to rectify that soon with those paranormals and e-roms.


5. If you’ve finished The Chieftain’s Daughter, you’re likely wondering “WTF is up with the fairies?”

Welp. You’ll find out in Prince in Leather, which’ll be out on June 1. It’s Heath’s story, and I assure you he’s as lovably smarmy as he is the the Afótama books. PiL will be out in a boxed set, but will also be available as an individual release. I can’t share either cover yet, but I can give you a hint of what Heath looks like. Ready?

Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 12.22.27 PM

That’s all I can give you. Sorry. 😀 Take my word for it–Fiona Jayde did a fabulous job on the cover.

Stay tuned for more details about the story’s launch and to find out how to get an advance reader copy.


Reedsville Roosters Den of Sin Holley Trent6. The next season of the Den of Sin series is coming this July. Well, late June in my case. We’ll be announcing the new theme–double theme, actually–soon, but I can give you a little tease as to what my story’s like.

-It’ll pick up the Reedsville Minor League baseball team thread (that started at the end of O for Two and continues in Winterball)

-It’ll be an MMF ménage.

-It’s a novel–the first in the Den world.

Oh! And Speaking of The Den, I’m putting out a bundle in May. I’ll share the title in the weeks to come, but it’ll contain all of my current M/M and MMF Den stories, PLUS a never-before-seen novella that ties in to my Storafalt world. That novella will be exclusive to the bundle for a few weeks, so if you’ve already purchased the other stories on their own, you’ll have a chance to get the novella as a single release in June. I’ll tell you the title of that soon, too.


I think that’s it for March! I hope I’ll have some news about the couple of series I have on submission in my next update.
