COVER REVEAL: The Rise of Genesis by M.R. Merrick

Announcing a new book by M.R. Merrick!

In a world where being Supernatural means you’re in danger, Ash Lawson is front and center. After years of helping others escape ATOM—a government entity known for abusing Supernaturals—he’s captured, and saving himself will prove to be the most difficult task he’s undertaken.

Tryst Rivera is a Succubus and veteran at the Academy, a facility tasked with converting underage Supernaturals into cooperative ATOM soldiers. She’s endured her time mostly unscathed, but when Ash arrives and their lives are tethered to one another, she’s placed in immediate danger.

With escape at the forefront of his mind, Ash struggles with the idea of life under ATOM’s thumb. He’ll die before he converts, but his life isn’t the only one he’s responsible for, and he already has more blood on his hands than he can bear. When a chance for freedom arises, Ash needs to decide how much—and who—he’s willing to risk for a second chance.

Coming March 15, 2016

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: DIRTY RIDE (Wind Dragon's MC #3.5) by Chantal Fernando


(Wind Dragons MC, #3.5)
by Chantal Fernando

From USA TODAY bestselling author Chantal Fernando comes a brand new Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club e-novella, full of sexy bad-boy bikers, strong heroines, and steamy romance!

Even by Wind Dragon Motorcycle Club standards, Irish was always a bit of a dark horse. Not one to confide his secrets, such as where he got that mysterious scar across his neck, he’s quick with his fists and even quicker to jump to the defense of his MC. But is he nimble enough to handle the woman he never saw coming? Or will she leave him with a matching scar across his heart?

Featuring scorching hot chemistry and plenty of sass, Dirty Ride is sure to rev your engine and get you immediately hooked!

Wow. I knew I liked Irish aka Ardan. Now, I LOVE Irish. I mean, HOT DAMN, Chantal!!! This man got so under my skin in the best of ways. With his blunt, pushy but caring personality, and his conviction, loyalty, and passion. He is all alpha. And he was all Tina's the moment he laid eyes on her. The woman didn't stand a chance.

We got to see a side normally reserved for the Brothers, but when Irish steps away from the club to pursue Valentina, we see a man who will do anything to get, keep, protect, and love a woman like no other. All with a silky, confident voice and a soft caress- or firm hand, as needed, and a body built for pleasure.

I won't go into the story itself, of course, but these two lit the pages ablaze from the get-go. I instantly liked Tina and wanted her with Ardan immediately. The fire between them was instantaneous and undeniable.
I thought they might spontaneously combust.

Tina came with a lot baggage but she was smart, strong, and had a wicked sense of humor. She knew who she was, what she wanted- and didn't want. And she was doing her best to leave her past behind. She was quickly making a new life for herself. She just wasn't expecting to find a new love. In fact, she was hoping to avoid it.

The best laid plans...

Ardan and Tina's story was exciting and explosive and I couldn't get enough. There were touching moments and those that made my teeth grind and my heart ache, and everything else in between.

I felt like this story focused on the couple more the others in the series. Tina isn't thrown into the club as quickly as the others. It made for a more intimate and erotic tale. BUT, what really made DIRTY RIDE my favorite of the Wind Dragon's MC books (yep, I said FAVORITE)... the unexpected, shocking and perfect ending.

Irish is a man you want in your corner, and if I may say, in your bed.
DIRTY RIDE totally ROCKED and I was seriously sad to reach the end
I think I'm ready for a re-read. Yes, it's that good. Chantal really brings the heat and I couldn't have loved this story more. Don't waste a moment. Grab DIRTY RIDE now...

(Wind Dragons MC Series, #1)
Re-Released: April 21, 2015

When Faye discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she does something incredibly stupid: she sleeps with his brother, Dexter Black. He’s the boy next door who grew up to be one sexy biker dude, pure alpha male to the core. A tattooed muscle-bound fantasy in the flesh, Dex is now vice president of the notorious Wind Dragons MC. And now Faye’s really screwed. . . . She’s a law student with a future. He’s a criminal with a past. She’s a good girl from a strict family. He’s a bad boy who breaks all the rules. But once Faye straddles the back of Dex’s bike—and experiences the thrill of the open road, the rush of pure adrenaline, and the roar of unbridled lust—there’s no turning back. This good girl and her hot-blooded biker are in for the ride of their lives. . .

*Note: this version is a revised and expanded edition of the indie version. It can be read as a stand alone.

(Wind Dragons MC Series, #2)
Release Date: June 16, 2015

Anna is a beautiful Ph.D. student whose older brother is a notorious badass in the Wind Dragons MC. Of course she loves Rake, who’s looked out for her since their troubled childhood. But he’s still protecting her—to the extreme. She can’t make a move without a Wind Dragons motorcycle escort. Potential boyfriends flee, for fear of her ass-kicking sibling. And Rake’s made it clear that his biker brothers are trouble of the worst kind, and strictly off-limits. But one of these tattooed bad boys has already pierced her heart: Arrow, the bearded, darkly brooding rider with the body of a Greek God and eyes that betray a wounded soul. He’s sent to whisk her off campus on his thundering steel stallion. And when Anna wraps her arms around his rock-hard torso, it’s too late for caution: she’ll ride as far as the road takes them—unless Rake stops Arrow in his flight. . . .

*Note: this can be read as a stand alone

(Wind Dragons MC Series, #3)
Release Date: August 11, 2015

Sweet, shy, and studious, Lana was the perfect student in high school—and the perfect target for a horny jock. After being seduced and humiliated, she swears she’ll never trust a man again. But when a friend draws her into the circle of the Wind Dragons MC, Lana’s steel-walled defenses are put to the test. The bikers are so sexy, so masculine and assured, they’re hard to resist—especially the gorgeous one called Tracker…
From the moment he meets Lana, Tracker feels the chemistry between them—and it’s highly explosive. A part of him wants to protect this angel on earth from the hell-on-wheels bikers’ world. But another part of him wants to take her in his arms, put her on his bike, and ride off into the sunset together. Lana wants the same thing—even though she knows it will set off a firestorm of trouble. She also knows that when a woman want something, she has to fight for it. And Tracker is definitely worth fighting for…

*Note: Can be read as a standalone.

She was an afterthought to her abusive parents. 

She’s invisible to the criminals she works with. 

And she’ll soon be the death-dealing ghost her enemies never see coming—if she can just shake loose the one person who does see her.

Supernatural Set Cover

Adeen has always known she was destined to save her people, the dragons, thanks to a visit from a princess when she was a small child. That one visit changed everything. Fearing the crumbling of the veil that protects the dragons, her clan took away her childhood and made training her top priority.

Now, no longer a child, Adeen is again visited by her princess and receives her task. She must make the trek to New Orleans to save her people. Her solo mission doesn’t stay that way long, and she is soon joined by an ancient fae, a not-so-extinct extinct phoenix, and a super hot dragon — who happens to be her fated mate. The mission is nothing like what she had prepared for, nor is it what she expected. This mission will take more than just skill. It will take a great sacrifice. Is Adeen ready to give up everything she just found?

Glass is Magic

I have been asked by quite a few people why glass was such a huge part of my Dragons story line and my answer is always the same: Glass is Magic.

I can still remember the first time I heard how glass was made. I was absolutely, positively sure it was magic. There was no way someone could actually take something like sand and make it so incredibly beautiful without magic. As an adult, I was lucky enough to see Vienna artisans creating the most magnificent pieces of art. I knew then and there that my childhood belief that glass was magic was true.

​Glass craftsman using blowtorch to shape a jar

When I was in kindergarten, I was walking on the shore of Lake Michigan with my family for the first time and found a piece of sea glass. Once again, I was amazed. A broken and discarded bottle had became what I called "a jewel" all by the simple act of nature. I still am as amazed by this as I was a small child. There is something just amazing about it.

Glass is my magic in real life. What is yours?
