Ladies and gentlemen, I'm thrilled to announce the release of my m/m vampire erotic romance novel, NATURAL INSTINCTS!  It just went live at MLR Press!  It's available on their website in many ebook formats, and soon will be available at other vendors and in print. 

I'm very excited about this novel with it being my first foray into writing vampires, and I hope all who read it, will enjoy it.  To view it at MLR Press, CLICK HERE.

And now, a big welcome to the world to my main characters, Andreas Nikandros and Titus Antonius Calidus!

Andreas Nikandros has one focus, to kill the vampire he believes murdered his sister, and he knows with their greater strength, the surest way to kill a vampire is to become one.  As a zoologist, he’s used to looking at the world from a natural standpoint, but when he sets out on a quest to find a vampire to Turn him, what he finds in Titus Antonius Calidus is the last thing he expected.  Titus has lived for over a thousand years, and in that time has only ever given his heart to one man.  As they follow their natural instincts, they discover something truly worth living forever for, each other.


  1. Woot!!! Congratulations, SJ!

  2. Mich!!! *hugs* Thank you so much! I'm still bouncing around, I'm so excited about my vamps making their debut :D

  3. Just wanted you to know I read this last night!! It was great!! I alway love different author's takes on vampires love stories! Hope This not the last we see of these characters! Thank's for a great read! Barb W.

  4. Yay! Thank you very much, Barb! I'm so happy you enjoyed it :D I really had a lot of fun writing my vampires. And I do have more planned for them :-) I'm working on the next one right now, and I'm hoping if I can get it written fast enough, it'll come out this year, too.

    Thank you again so much for letting me know you liked it!

  5. I just finished this one, S.J., and I loved it!! A lot more than I thought I would to be honest.

    I've seen where you plan on doing another story in this world so I assume we'll hear about Ryu and Daniel. My question though is do you think Carl will make another appearance? I know he's human and Andreas admitted at the end that he was slowly letting go of his previous life, but I'll admit that Carl completely latched onto my heart and isn't letting go :) Do you think he'll find a hunky vampire of his very own?

    I can't wait to read more about these characters!

  6. Hi Lacey! We already chatted before I saw your comment here, but I still wanted to give you another huge THANK YOU for getting Natural Instincts and your praise of it. I promise, I'll be keeping Carl in mind as I'm working on the other stories :-) Thank you again, so much!
