Fierce Dancer Cover Reveal

April 14, 2023

It’s that time! 8 books, with the 9th right around the corner, almost a million words (and it will be a million when we’re done) and it’s time to share the cover for Fierce Dancer, the 9th and final book in the 82nd Street Vandals brings us full circle back to Emersyn. While Emersyn appears on the cover of the first book in the series, we do not see her face. We see the image everyone else sees. On Fierce Dancer, we see the woman she’s become, the survivor, with all the confidence and strength she’s demonstrated throughout the series. There might also be a surprise tattoo revealed on the cover.

I am, beyond excited to share this cover with you. The book itself is almost finished and it will be in your hands before you know it. Even as we prepare to say farewell to one series, another is waiting in the wings. Be sure to keep an eye out for more information on Battle Lines, releasing in September. And if you haven’t had a chance yet, pick up Billionaires and Babes, a charity anthology that will be available for a limited time. The anthology features Shamelessly Loyal, a 82nd Street Vandals/Bay Ridge Royals novella that takes place during Dirty Devil and Brutal Fighter.

 

Don’t Miss Reckless Thief

April 11, 2023

Welcome to book eight of the 82nd Street Vandals series. If you have not read the first book, stop. Do not pass Go. Grab book one: Savage Vandal, and start there.

This is a series that really must be read in order.

Reckless Thief picks up immediately where we left off in Merciless Spy I can’t believe we’re here, the penultimate book in the 82nd Street Vandals series. So much to share with you, so I’m going to keep this letter short and sweet. We’ve actually got two releases this week, because if you haven’t grabbed it yet, you need to dash over to Amazon to get the Billionaires and Babes anthology.

This antho is released as part of the Ballgowns and Books Event in Sydney, Australia which kicks off in June. I’m so excited to be heading to the other side of the planet to meet readers, see a country I’ve loved from afar, and generally have a good time. This charity anthology featuring a selection of BABE 2023 attending authors is designed to give BABE attendees a brief introduction to these authors and their stories.

All stories within are brand new content, or otherwise unavailable anywhere else. They’re short stories, novellas, and prequels which don’t require any prior knowledge of the author or characters within. These stories are a broad range of romance, from high heat to closed door, and some will end on cliffhangers. All profit from the BABE 2023 Anthologies will benefit the Hawkesbury Helping Hands charity. These ebook editions will be withdrawn from sale in July and physical copies are only available at BABE 2023.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of it. Read all the way to the end to find out what novella of mine you can find in the anthology.

Don’t forget to grab Reckless Thief and don’t worry about that cliff at the end–Fierce Dancer, the final book of the series will be here before you know it.

Happy reading!

Doctor! Doctor! Gimme the News…

March 10, 2023

Are you ready for the cover reveal for the penultimate book in the 82nd Street Vandals? Can you believe we’re at the penultimate book already? In so many ways it feels like we just got started but here we are, as promised, we’re finally getting a good look at Mickey “Doc” James. He’s another character that walked into the story and settled in to stay. You gotta love these guys, at least I do.

Also a quick audio update for those of you waiting for Merciless Spy on audio, we have it back and it’s being proofed right now! So we’ll hopefully have it ready to upload very soon!

Get a First Look Inside Mad Boys!

February 11, 2023

Are you ready to get a sneak peek inside the pages of Mad Boys?

Jonas

“Just fix your tie,” Lachlan snapped at me. Mom hadn’t let us know they were coming. We probably wouldn’t have known if Ramsey hadn’t woken us up with the news. Now, he and Lachlan were both glaring at me to hurry up.

All I’d done was back-to-back exams, papers, and projects for the last three weeks. KC and I had nearly been paired on a project, but the teacher decided to make them individual. Probably better.

She hadn’t spoken to me since the day of the fight. She barely even looked at me. When she did—well it was like I wasn’t there. This morning, however, the music had been posted to my door with the lyrics added. I’d been sitting and reading it, trying to process when Ramsey showed up.

You’re Not Ready: Mad Boys Cover Reveal is Here!

February 3, 2023

After months of anticipation, the cover for Mad Boys is here and my hat is off to Stephanie Heinritz from Vicious Desires Design, because this is just chef’s kiss. For those wondering, Jonas is featured on the cover.

The model is Joey La Grua by photographer Wander Aguiar.  So excited to share this cover with you as we count down the days until the release of Mad Boys (March 14, 2023)!  Are you ready for more of KC, Torched, and the Douchebags Three?

Blurb:

The pop princess with her bright blue hair, pouty lips, haunting eyes, and the voice of a siren… She’s always been too  busy for us. Music seems to be the one language we both speak. 

It’s not enough. For her. For them. For anyone.

I’m not enough.

My brothers want her, the world owns her, and everyone else is vying for a piece of her.  At the end of the school year, she walked away and didn’t give us a second look. Discarding us like she had her father.

Now, I can’t decide what I want more—for her to come back or to never see her again.

Your favorite Vandals are back! Grab Merciless Spy today!

January 17, 2023

Welcome to book seven of the 82nd Street Vandals series. If you have not read the first six, stop. Do not pass Go. Grab book one: Savage Vandal, and start there.

Seriously.

This is a series that really must be read in order.

Okay, back to my welcome. Merciless Spy picks up a short while after where we left off in Dangerous Renegade. Need a snapshot? Pour yourself a drink, grab a seat, and get caught up in the foreword.

Merciless Spy finds us with a war brewing and their journey far from over.

The seismic shifts that have rocked their lives are not over. Not by a long shot. Please remember that this is a dark romance and there are definitely triggering moments with regard to abuse, assault, violence, and addiction. Take care of yourself.

Also, this is the seventh book in a series. While there may be no specific happy endings at the end of each of these books, there will be one to the whole series, that I promise you. Some of these books will have cliffhangers, largely due to the size of the story, but the happy ending has to be earned.

Finally, I want to add one last note. Books are not written in a vacuum. Worlds are not created in silence. There were some deeply challenging moments as I worked on this book, and thanks to some of the most wonderfully supportive people and the best girl gang ever, I made it. We made it.

Happy reading.

New Release Date

December 14, 2022

I’m coming on behalf of Heather to let you know you will be getting a note from Amazon soon if you pre-ordered Merciless Spy that the release date has been pushed back again. The new release date is January 17th, 2023.

Heather has been working tirelessly to get this book finished in time but after talking this over, this was the best call. While Heather has been in the writing cave, she’s also been sick. This gives her body time to get better and then go in and wrap everything up to the level she wants it at. Extra time will ensure she can deliver the Vandals exactly as they deserve. This book has some pivotal and important moments she wont compromise on. Thank you so much for all the support and understanding!

XO,

Elisabeth
