Apologies if you actually get my newsletter, but in the interest of writing a book that is due May 1, with spring break looming, I’m duplicating…
News Contests Appearances

It is a crazy busy spring around here. In April I have three releases in bookstores (one out now), and am taking part in two group contests. I will have another release, my first urban fantasy Amazon Ink, out May 26.
In other news, there will be a follow-up book to Amazon Ink, Amazon Queen. Look for it May 2010.
Now the April 2009 releases:
Dark Crusade, 4th in my Unbound series. Is in stores today!
Evil forces…a forbidden love…a deadly witch hunt.
Don’t miss Lori Devoti’s dark, mesmerizing romance..
Exiled rogue shapeshifter Kerr Vik once saw being transported to Gunngar as a
fresh start. Until the one person he most regretted leaving behind—captivating
witch Heather Moore—stumbles through the portal…and finds herself right in
the middle of a witch hunt. Heather has courageously come to Gunngar to redeem
herself. But Kerr knows that if she braves it alone…she will die. He must
somehow send her back through the portal. And it’s not long before a collision
of truth, love and duty complicates Kerr’s mission by forcing him to choose
sides: should he save this forbidden love or protect his honor?
Also available is Midnight Cravings, an anthology of Nocturne Bites with my short story Captured (also part of the Unbound world).
The dark elf who slashed him must have graced the tip of his sword with a
drug. Because that was the last thing Gray Barsk remembered until he awakened in
a dark cell…and he was not alone. Immediately he sensed a female nearby. Then
After years of captivity, Leve refused to surrender. This male was the
latest in a series of hellhounds they’d forced on her. But Gray was
different…unlike the others, he somehow had control over his primitive
instincts and could not be manipulated by their captors.
Now, for a chance to turn the tables on their tormentors and escape the
nightmare of Kamp Arena, where hellhounds were bred for fighting, Leve would
have to overcome her fear and distrust, and join forces with this singular male.
But to fool their captors, they had to pretend to be avid mates…and their ruse
was stirring very real passion in both of them.
My third release for April is When Gargoyles Fly, my story in the Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance. As you can probably guess from the title, it is not part of my Unbound world, but it does feature a sexy, tormented shape-shifting hero. I’m really pleased with this story; so, if you have a chance, I hope you’ll check it out.
My next full length work will be something new from me–an urban fantasy novel where Amazons are real and living in Madison, Wisconsin. Amazon Ink will be in stores May 26, but is available for preorder now.
Meet Mel: Business owner. Dedicated mom. Natural-born Amazon.
It’s been ten years since Melanippe Saka left the Amazon tribe in order
to create a normal life for her daughter, Harmony. True, running a tattoo parlor
in Madison, Wisconsin while living with your Amazon warrior mother and priestess
grandmother is not everyone’s idea of normal, but Mel thinks she’s succeeded
at blending in as human.
Turns out she’s wrong. Someone knows all about her, someone who’s
targeting young Amazon girls, and no way is Mel is going to let Harmony become
tangled in this deadly web. With her mother love in overdrive, Ms. Melanippe
Saka is quite a force . . . even when she’s facing a barrage of
distractions—including a persistent detective whose interest in Mel goes
beyond professional, a sexy tattoo artist with secrets of his own, and a
seriously angry Amazon queen who views her as a prime suspect. To find answers,
Mel will have to do the one thing she swore she’d never do: embrace her powers
and admit that you can take the girl out of the tribe . . . but you can’t take
the tribe out of the girl.
Here are the official details…
