NOW AVAILABLE! Blind Cupid Collection 3 HOT Historicals #99cents @KarynGerrard @DecadentPub


This ebook collection includes: the bestselling (Amazon and All Romance) The Blind Cupid, The Governess and the Beast and The Copper and the Madam.  Approx 62,000 words total  From Decadent Publishing


 Was Cupid blind?

Madam Rea chose the name The Blind Cupid for her brothel because she knew love would never take root in the den of sin.

Rea and her employees hide wretched pasts and devastating secrets while remaining cool and detached with regard to their carnal dealings.

But Desmond, Lila, and Rea cannot deny the desire they feel or the fact their hidden emotions and passions are awakened.

Can they learn to trust again and let love into their lives?


Excerpt from The Governess and the Beast:

“Do you have courage, Miss Jennings?”

The question confused her for a moment. “I suppose as much as the next person....”

Baron Stonecliff reached behind his head, untied the knot, and unwound the scarf until he exposed his face. Utter ruin. She fought back the gasp of shock but could not prevent her physical recoil and stepped back. Mottled, puckered skin and a maze of nasty wounds, some of them burns, covered the left side. Scars crisscrossed his cheek and disappeared into his hairline. How miraculous his lips and jaw remained intact. What made the destruction harder to bear was the breathtaking masculine beauty still visible on the right. Lord Stonecliff must have been devastatingly handsome at one point. She kept her gaze steady, and she hoped, her emotions well buried. With swelling evident, she surmised his injury must have occurred in the last several months. The skin was red and raw. Would it be it sore to the touch? The scarring continued down his neck and disappeared under his collar. So, not only his face received injury.

“Have you looked your fill?” Stonecliff snapped in annoyance. “You must be able to gaze upon the horror that is my face. When I am in my own home, I do not cover it. The doctors recommended leaving my visage free to breathe in order to aid healing. Since am I told it is not as red as before, I suppose their theory has merit....”

He frowned and shrugged with slight indifference. The words were probably the most he had spoken to anyone in some time, and no doubt more than he wanted to share.

Hortense swallowed and took a step toward him. “Regardless, you are free to do as you wish in your own home. Since I did not run screaming from the room, there should be no difficulty.”

Did one corner of those full, sensuous lips quirk into an almost-smile? Oh, Lord, why was she thinking of his lips?

He bade her to sit again and took the chair opposite. Stonecliff crossed his long legs and regarded her closely.

“What I am about to say may well have you scream and run from the room. I did not bring you here to be governess to my ward. In truth, he is eleven years old and away at school. I lied. I brought you here to be—my companion.”

An AMAZING RACE with culture, history, and Romance! By Jessica E. Subject #AmazingRaceCanada

On Sunday evening, I watched the finale of the second season of The Amazing Race Canada with my family. Now, we'd watched a bit of the first season, and have caught some episodes of the US version, but this is the first time we really got into the show. If you've never seen an of the shows, competitors race to various destinations, completing tasks where they immerse themselves in the history and culture. With the first season of Amazing Race Canada, competitors remained in the country, but this year, there were a couple legs of the race where they flew overseas.

Why do I enjoy this show so much? Well, I always enjoy learning about other cultures and the history of the people, especially within my own country. But, what I enjoyed most was how diverse the competitors were. They were from all different backgrounds, ages, races, sexual orientation. It was wonderful! Some were parent/child teams, siblings, friends, couples, and even teammates.

Of course, I was cheering for fan favorites Natalie Spooner and Meaghan Mikkelson, two members of Canada's Women's Gold Medal Olympic Hockey Team. Never giving up with injuries and more, they were inspirational and great role models.

But I was not the least bit upset when Mickey Henry and Pete Schmalz crossed the finish line first. Best friends, they ran a wonderful race without getting involved in all the drama we have become accustomed to on reality television. I am so happy for them.

I am also very happy for Alain Chanoine and Audrey Tousignant-Maurice, a dating couple from Montreal, who spent most of their on-air time arguing or kissing. And now, they're engaged! Yes, Alain proposed right on the show, bringing tears to my eyes.

It was a great season, and I'm so excited that casting is now open for Season 3. Can't wait!

Tell me, do YOU watch The Amazing Race?

Jessica E. Subject is the author of contemporary and science fiction romance, ranging from sweet to sexy. In her stories, you could meet clones, or a sexy alien or two. You may even be transported to another planet for a romantic rendezvous. And if you’re looking for something really steamy, check out her erotica stories written as Paisley Brown.

When Jessica isn't reading, writing, or doing dreaded housework, she likes to get out and walk. Fast. But she just may slow down if there is a waterfall nearby.

Jessica lives in Ontario, Canada with her husband and two energetic children. And she loves to hear from her readers. You can find her at and on twitter @jsubject.

Crazy about Cowboys

Happy Last Day of Summer!

Lately I have been working on a Christmas erotic romance which will be taking place in Northern Ontario, Canada. I’m calling the story Cowboys for Christmas.

This isn’t your typical cowboy romance. It’s going to be a cowboy erotic romance ménage and it takes place somewhere north of Wawa, Ontario. The only way to get to the fictional ranch of Moose Ranch will be by bush plane. (I love bush plane stories).

It’s also going to be taking place on a fictional organic Angus cattle ranch with the only way to get the cattle out is through a good old fashioned cattle drive. But because this story is a Christmas story with lots of snow, there won’t be any cattle drives in this one.
I'm expecting Cowboys for Christmas to be out sometime in November! Woot!

Here’s a sneak peek:

 Cowboys for Christmas
JJ Watson has spent the past ten Christmases in a maximum security prison. Early parole and a job on a Canadian cattle ranch comes as a huge surprise. The last thing she expects is to serve Christmas holiday dinners to three of the sexiest cowboys she's ever met!

Rafe, Brady and Dan thought they were getting a couple of male ex-cons to help out around their secluded ranch and to their surprise they get a cute female instead. In the snowbound wilds of Northern Ontario, female companionship is rare. It's a good thing the three men don't mind sharing...
They're dominating, sexy-as-sin, and they fill JJ with the hottest ménage fantasies she's ever had. Suddenly she's craving Cowboys for Christmas and wishing for something she knows she can never have...a happily ever after.

I’m having so much fun with this story that I plan on turning it into TWO series. One will center around bush plane romances in Northern Ontario and the other will center around convicts and cowboys around Canada and the US.  Start looking for them in the coming years.
So it looks like I am officially Crazy About Cowboys...and yep, that’s going to be a title for another book. *wink*

 Happy Reading!

Captured - a multi author boxed set featuring FIVE Canadian authors

Every now and then, I'm blown away by how many talented Canadian authors there are, sometimes living just around the corner. Maybe it's just me, but I was truly amazed to find out that a boxed set I'm in, with 9 authors, has 5 Ottawa area authors in it.

How crazy of a coincidence is that? No matter how vast our beautiful country seems, it's little things like this that remind me that I am not alone. That literary skill isn't something for other people and that you can find support and friendship and peers sometimes in your own back yard.

With that said, I'm going to share the awesome links and info to this boxed set so you can see just what hot stuff Canadian girls are capable of.

9 Alpha Bad-Boys Who Will Capture Your Heart

Canada Smashwords, Worldwide Barnes and Noble
CAPTURED is a steamy collection from today’s hottest authors featuring 9 sexy bad boys trying to capture your heart, every way they know how. Nine tales of sensual seduction featuring alpha male heroes determined to have their way, and willing to do anything to get it, even if that means a little seductive persuasion…

DEBT OF HONOR by Opal Carew (Canadian)
Held captive by a domineering sheikh… and made to pay for a crime she did not commit
YOURS TO TAKE by Cathryn Fox
Revenge takes on a sexy twist when a powerhouse lawyer is stripped of her control by the handsome multi-millionaire she once took down in the courtroom.
ACCIDENTAL ABDUCTION by Eve Langlais (Canadian)
Fall in love? Never! An alien assassin turned pirate has no use for an emotion he can’t sell, but that doesn’t stop him from falling for the human he captures.
JAGUAR’S RULE by T. J. Michaels
After an irresistible night of passion with Reya, Aaron James longs to hold her close forever. Little does he know that the tall, sleek beauty has a carnal secret—and he’s the one who needs protection.
HANDCUFFED TO THE SHEIKH by Teresa Morgan (Canadian)
The last thing Maxine Foss ever expected was to be handcuffed to a sexy, but crazy, guy who claims he’s an Arabian prince… and is determined to seduce her. Best. Abduction. Ever.
FAST AND MINE by Sharon Page (Canadian)
College student Claire gets lessons in seduction from sexy, hot street bike racer, Sawyer. But when she’s kidnapped by his psychotic sponsor to force him to race, can Sawyer save her and win her heart?
BURNS LIKE FIRE by Mandy Rosko (Canadian)
Jack Marilla is out for revenge for the deaths of his family, and the burn scars that cover his body. To get it, he has to hunt down the woman he used to love, the paranormal fire starter who set his house ablaze with him, and his family, locked inside of it. When he catches her, however, he faces his biggest challenge yet. To not believe her when she claims to be innocent, or fall for her seduction..
DEBT INHERITANCE by Pepper Winters
Jethro Hawk receives Nila as an inheritance present on his twenty-ninth birthday. Her life is his until she’s paid off a debt that’s centuries old. He can do what he likes with her—nothing is out of bounds—she has to obey. There are no rules. Only payments..
Things take a turn for the worse when Riley St. Claire is kidnapped by aliens and forced to choose a mate. The problem is, it would have been better, and safer, for the aliens if they had left Riley back on Earth.

Welcome Canadian Author Rosanna Leo! @LeoRosanna Predator's Fire #NewRelease #Shifters

Predator's Fire by Rosanna Leo

  • File Size: 400 KB
  • Publisher: Liquid Silver Books (September 8, 2014)

A big welcome to Canadian author Rosanna Leo and her shifter series! Nothing like some hot, Canadian shifters to get your blood pumping! Here is Rosanna's new release in the Gemini Island Shifter series (#5)




When Nina Suzuki discovers the body of her best friend Janine, her world turns upside down. Things go from bad to worse when Janine’s corpse seems to transform into that of a large, brown wolf. For the first time, Nina is faced to confront all the clues indicating her BFF was not what she seemed. A letter from the dead woman opens Nina’s eyes to a strange, new world. The same letter warns of a sinister group called the Alpha Brethren, and urges her to find Killian Moon of the Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort on Gemini Island.
Killian Moon is a jaguar shifter and teen mentor at the Ursa Lodge in Northern Ontario. He may be a comfort and inspiration to confused teen shifters, but he also has a fiery past. His past comes back to haunt him when human Nina arrives at the resort, demanding to speak with him. Demanding answers. Can he trust her with knowledge that will not only change her life, but possibly endanger those around him?
As Killian begrudgingly tutors Nina on all things shifter, their mutual curiosity flares into passionate need. Once they touch, once they succumb to desire, there is no going back. Killian realizes Nina is his mate and they both begin to comprehend the terror threatening those on their shifter-friendly island. He is forced to confront the tragedy in his family and determines to protect Nina at all costs.
But can they protect everyone they love from a cult of dangerous shifters, intent on horror and destruction?


“How much longer do I have to wait? I want to see Killian Moon. Now.”
The feminine voice, strangely soft despite its insistence, echoed deep in his being, awakening his jaguar. The great cat roared to life, turned toward the office and inhaled deeply. Its eyes flashed in interest.
Killian breathed in at the same time, catching the scent of cherry blossoms through the door. The sweet perfume, mixed with human outrage, proved a heady distraction, making him forget why he was there. Shaking his head, he tried to dismiss the odd sensation as Ryland opened the door.
The door swung open and the first person he glimpsed was one of the clerks from reception, trying his hardest to placate the unexpected guest. “I’m sure Mr. Snow and Mr. Moon will be right back.”
And then his gaze landed on the petite human. Tapered Asian eyes, so dark and mysterious, but rimmed with circles of exhaustion. Smooth, cinnamon skin hinted at a mixed background. Wearing no makeup, she appeared younger than she must be, but her presence and keen eyes pegged her at around thirty years old. She had a riot of curly, black hair and feminine curves that ought to come with a warning. He could see it now. Beware: this woman’s body will cause insanity in men. Even as she gesticulated at the clerk, her boobs jiggled in such a way his throat went dry.
He pictured her in a corset, her breasts spilling over delicate lace edging, and almost forgot his name.
This Nina Suzuki was damn hot and his jaguar seemed to agree. The animal licked its lips, its golden gaze assessing and appreciating every detail, from her rounded hips to her come-hither rack.
Yes, the creature uttered on a frenzied breath.

The Writing Life Gets More and More Glamorous... #Writing #Cleaning #Insanity

Well, another summer has come and gone, and where the hell did it go? My area had more rain and cloudy days this year than I can ever recall having before. We didn't get a lot of swimming in, my garden did okay but not overwhelming like last year (thanks to the bit a hill the garden is on the edge of, and with so much rain, it took days to dry out), and I didn't suffer from heat stroke once! (there is a God!)

And now the kids have returned to school and all very happy to do so. I have never been a Mom who likes to see the kids go back every year. I love the "no routine" of summer vacation, the spontaneity of doing multiple things every day and never planning too far ahead. But I will confess, when the kids return to school, boy I LOVE the quiet!! *g*

The first week of school was last week, and came with mixed feelings and an insanity I didn't know I'd suffer from. My oldest started College -- I was happy for her, sad for the years that have swept by, and cried for most of the first few days. 

My youngest started a new school which he was so excited about. It's a school for kids who love to learn, want to learn and for those who learn at a higher level and faster pace than others. There's only so many spots open each year, so to have him be accepted was huge for him. However, the one hiccup I was nervous about was the busing. He has to catch a transfer bus from my middle child's high school and as I was expecting ... the first day was madness and chaotic. The bus driver left him that morning, leaving earlier than he was suppose to, and then his teacher told my son the incorrect number of the bus he was to catch -- confusing him because it was the wrong # I had given him that morning -- but he listened to the teacher. It was just madness and the tumultuous feelings I had nearly drove me insane. From pride watching them all leave, sadness that more time had passed and they were getting older, and anger, frustration and dislike for the whole transfer option. But a week has passed and he is making every transfer, LOVES the new school, has made five wonderful new friends and chatters like a madman every night. 

Oh and my middle child...he doesn't like the early mornings, a couple of his teachers have already proven to be hard asses, but he has been asked to join a  Leadership Team to help other students with high school challenges. And since he's my sports kid, it didn't take him long to get invited by coaches to join soccer, football and cross country. He chose football by the way, and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. But I survived Rugby last year...

I'm the type of woman that when I'm frustrated, angry or my mind is racing from chaos and/or I'm on an emotional roller-coaster that I throw myself into housework.

I know...messed up right?? But it's true. I've washed walls, cleaned floors, windows, baseboards, washed all windows -- inside and out -- and everything sparkles. In one week, I think I've done more housework than I do in a year. It's nice not to have the kids disrupting or tripping over them, but it's insane.

I've now moved onto the 5 bedrooms -- cleaning carpets, washing bedding and curtains, and cleaned walls and corners. And having 2 boys ... it's with tippy toes and gas masks !!!  I went where no Mother should ever go LOL

One would think that all this quiet would be great for writing. And I should be eating bon-bons poolside and living the glamorous life of an author. Right? I mean, writers shouldn't have to do housework, cook or leave our offices to deal with menial things. *snort* Isn't Fiction grand? LOL

Life changes. I don't like it. I love to see my kids excel, but damn, I sometimes miss the days of teaching them to walk, talk and not spit up... *sigh* I don't deal with change well, I admit it, but I guess there's a positive in it all....

My house sparkles, smells fantastic, and hubby says I won't have to use the vacuum or wash another wall again this year .... HE will do it!! WOOT! 

Have a great day ahead!!

It's the most beautiful time of the year ~ by author Jessica E. Subject @jsubject #fallcolours

It's Fall! Okay, not officially, but the weather has cooled down after last week's hottest temperature of the year. And the leaves are already turning on many of the trees in my neighbourhood. It truly is a beautiful sight. Plus, when the leaves do fall, I love the way they crunch under my feet.

What else does fall mean to me? Birthdays, Thanksgiving (in Canada it's the second weekend in October), Halloween, wagon rides, pumpkins, tractors, the Harvest Moon, new television shows, and so much more.

Oh, and being Canadian, I cannot forget about hockey. ;) While the regular season for the NHL begins in October, pre-season games have already started. 

So, what's your favourite thing about this time of year?

Jessica E. Subject is the author of contemporary and science fiction romance, ranging from sweet to erotica. In her stories, you could meet clones, or a sexy alien or two. You may even be transported to another planet for a romantic rendezvous. And if you’re looking for something really steamy, check out her erotica stories written as Paisley Brown.

When Jessica isn't reading, writing, or doing dreaded housework, she likes to get out and walk. Fast. But she just may slow down if there is a waterfall nearby.

Kayaking in Ontario!

Greetings! I took most of the summer off from blogging and I missed YOU! But now I am back! Woot!

I hope you had a great summer! September is here and soon we’ll be seeing the leaves start to show off their brilliant fall colors of red, yellow, orange, gold. Already the days are getting shorter and next week it’ll start getting colder.
But there is still plenty of time to head outdoors and enjoy the weather. One of the things I love to do is to go kayaking!
(Pics are from the Net as my printer scanner is not working)
When my brother and I were kids, my dad built a couple of homemade wooden kayaks. One was a one-seater and the other was a two-seater. As my brother and I grew into our teens, then into our twenties and thirties, those two kayaks went everywhere with us. Sometimes we went with my dad, other times we went with each other.
We went ghost town hunting up north (, interior camping in Algonquin Park, (, interior camping in Killarney, camping in Balsam Lake, and leisure trips to other lakes such as the Poker Lakes (, day trips in Lake Ontario, Pigeon Lake and North Pigeon Lake, Lake Erie, Lake Superior, Gull Lake & Gull River, Lake Scucog, a VERY  short stint down the wild White Water Rapids just outside of Minden ( ) and so many other places.

Sure, every once in awhile one of the kayaks would spring a little leak (fibre glass repair kits came in handy for the big leaks) or the rough white-capped waves would splash water inside, so we always had an extra towel to pick up excess water.
Except, there was this one unfortunate trip that my brother and my dad took into the Killarney interior (I opted out of this particular trip), that they ran into BIG TROUBLE.
They had interior kayaked about one week into the Killarney Interior when one night they awoke to a strange chewing sound. My dad suspected it might be a chipmunk or squirrel digging around in the kayak but when they went outside and shone the flashlight toward the kayak, they discovered a porcupine! It was chewing on the kayak!!!
My dad panicked and he grabbed a big rock...and aimed it near the porcupine wanting to chase it off...Unfortunately his aim was off and the rock smashed right into the side of the kayak - big hole ensued! LOL They realized they had forgotten the fibreglass repair kit in the car! They spent the entire next day going from tree to tree collect sticky sap and then used that sap to patch bark over the hole in the kayak. LOL
My dad said he was really uneasy as they travelled along the waterways to get out as he didn’t know if the sap and bark patch job would hold. He was surprised when it worked and they took three days to get back out instead of the leisurely week long trek in. LOL
The moral of this story is always be prepared when you are going out with a kayak or any kind of water transportation. Aside from a repair kit, we always carried a lightweight tent, lifejackets, sunhats and sunscreen, lightweight pads to sleep on, a pot and a pan, freeze dried food, MAPS, tons of water, blankets and pillows. Plus lots more stuff. Make a list and check it off twice.
Happy Kayaking!
P.S. My latest release is "Bared to Him", a tentacle shifter erotic romance! More details at my website
