New Release: Frame and Fortune – Ivy Morris Mystery


Hi Everyone!

I didn’t get a chance to post this when it came out so here we are today and I’m posting now :) Funny how that works…

The next Ivy Morris Mystery is out now and available for purchase as an ebook or a print book. You can go to my website for links to available retailers.


Ivy Morris’ best friend, Bella Landry, is in trouble, thanks to a surprise she finds in the walk-in freezer at her hair salon. Calling amateur sleuth Ivy is a no-brainer for Bella. She can’t trust her policeman boyfriend—he’s the one who cuffed her and booked her, and not in a sexy kind of way.

Ivy might be in over her head this time, with Bella’s ex showing up wanting to help and only making things worse. Who is he secretly promising to pay? And does it have anything to do with the person stealing picture frames but leaving the pictures around town?

Ivy’s got a convoluted mess on her hands—secret lives, secret agendas, and a lot of unexplained money. To top it off, the decidedly delicious Ben Fallon has turned gourmet cook and chief bottle washer in her house…while stealthily taking over a few of Ivy’s drawers.

What’s a girl to do?

Author: K.T. Black



Elise Bennette doesn’t do relationships … even though her sexy-as-hell new assistant has her consumed by erotic daydreams. But things aren’t what they appear to be, and her dream life and real life are beginning to blur. Will her fantasies eventually become real or will a secret shatter the illusion?


Interview with Dylan Holt, from The Assistant:


Hello. My writer wanted me to take a few minutes to tell you a little bit about myself, and perhaps even entice you with her new story.

My name is Dylan Holt. I come from a long line of succubus/incubi, and history hasn’t always painted my kind in the best light, nor has it gotten things completely accurate. I’m not a “Demon”, but I’m not exactly human either, even though I do resemble one. An extremely attractive one. <Shrugs and grins smugly>. I know that makes me sound egotistical, but it’s part of how I’m able to draw humans to me.

So, I’m guessing you’re wondering if part of what you’ve heard about a succubus/incubi is true. Do I enter into dreams and tempt humans with erotic suggestions? Absolutely! It is my nature after all. The sexier the dreams, the more potent the energy for me to feed from.

Now don’t look at me like that. Before you go judging me, I must point out that this isn’t entirely one-sided. I don’t completely drain the life force of anyone I’m involved with. I do take what I require, but I also give them something in return. The inspiration to pursue the thing they desire most.

I also have the ability to enhance dreams, make them seem real. It helps to motivate the human I’m pursuing to keep them dreaming. If things progress to an intimate relationship, even better.

As far as me in general, I’m a bit of a wanderer, able to adapt to any situation. A true “Jack of All Trades”. I’m a whiz with modern technology, which comes in handy. I’ve had to reinvent myself more times than I care to count. And, for a long time I thought I was happy moving from town to town, person to person. Then I encountered Elise Bennette. That’s when everything changed. She made me want to set down roots and get lost in her dreams.

“If love isn’t worth fighting for, what is?”

LovesBattle_w7403_300 MED



Love Howard has more than a knack for matchmaking. Born from a forbidden passion and a twelve-hundred-year-old promise, she and her sisters can literally see true love. And while Love has no problem bringing other couples together, her own romantic life could use a little help.

Danton DeAngelo has always been well grounded in reality. So it throws him for no small loop when the woman he’s fallen for believes that she’s been reincarnated eleven times and can actually see true love.

Now Danton is faced with the biggest decision of his life. Accept Love for who she really is, or walk away from her forever.


The hand Love pressed to her brow was visibly shaking. “There’s something I need to tell you. I just need you to keep an open mind.”

“What is it? Are you sick?” Danton asked.

“No, I’m not sick.” Her voice trembled on a forced laugh. “It’s something else. Something I‘ve been trying to prepare you for. This would be so much easier if you believed in magic. If you could believe that what I’m about to tell you is the honest truth.”

Turning, Love opened the iron chest, the hinges groaning with the effort as specks of rust littered the floor. From its depths she pulled out a clear plastic bag that she held tight to her chest, eyes closed, before handing it to a confused Danton.

“This is my tartan, my plaid. Before it faded and was dinner for the moths, it was once patterned in checks of green, gray, and brown. The purple and white stripes that ran through the hem identified the wearer as part of the royal family.” Love tapped the plastic, her finger pointing out where each color should be. “It was a gift from my father. The first and only time my sister’s and I met him, he was on his deathbed, we were eighteen. A week later our mother died in the same moment he drew his last breath.” Needing the extra air Love drew a breath of her own. “That day was the thirteenth of February, eight-hundred and fifty-eight AD. My father was Cinaed mac Alpin, crowned king of the Picts and Gaels. He was Scotland’s first king.”

“Eight- hundred and fifty-eight?” That couldn’t be right, she was only twenty-five. “Don’t you mean Nineteen-eighty-seven?”

“No. I was born for the first time in Scotland during the middle of the ninth century.”

Blurb: It’s Carter Jamison’s job to catch Sabrina Rutledge and return her to her boss, dead or alive. What he hadn’t counted on was falling for her, again. She’d broken his heart once. Could he forgive her and save her? Or would he turn her over to the tyrant who owned her and walk away? When Sabrina sees who’s come after her, part of her is happy, another part is dismayed. He’d burned her once. Would he help her now? Or turn her in?

Both Carter and Sabrina have been lied to, manipulated, and used. Trust is not something either one does easily. With assassins after them, injured and stranded in the middle of an alien desert, they will need to learn to trust each other as they once did in order to survive. But can they do so before nature and her boss take care of them both?

Will he sacrifice his wings for a woman he loves but can never keep?
Clyde, an angel, battles the one thing he believes will lead to his fall from heaven—his new found emotions, forbidden among his kind. Nonetheless, the Angel Lords promise to promote him to warrior when he completes his last assignment—to find Jade. When he does, emotions he never knew possible arise. For the first time in two thousand years, he cursed his existence. Knowing she can never be his, will he sacrifice his wings for a woman he loves but can’t keep?
He bent toward her, wrapped one arm around her waist, the other around her back, then buried his face in the crook of her neck and inhaled.
Relishing the feel of her body melded against his, he forgot the worries consuming him. She soothed his ache with a mere touch, with a mere embrace.
Exactly what he’d wanted, exactly what he needed.
She then pressed her full lips against his cheek, kissing him lightly.
An innocent kiss. There was no passion behind it, but an unconscious consuming need, one he’d never felt, swelled inside him—desire. It was exciting, overwhelming and terrifying, blocking logic and reason.
All he wanted now was a single kiss. All he could think about was how her soft lips would feel pressed against his.
Marvelous, he concluded.
It was absurd to want what he did and feel what he felt, for he was an angel. Carnal desires even as insignificant as kisses were for others, for all others except his breed, and yet he felt it so deeply it seared him.
The desire that gripped him didn’t release him even after she unhooked her arms from around his neck, and the warmth of her body melted away.
There he stood, immobile, battling the desire she’d sparked. He didn’t want to leave yet knew he had to before he’d acted out his longing.
He willed his body to move. Finally, he placed one foot behind the other, stepped back and strode away praying the yearning he had no right to feel for a woman who would never be his would soon subside.
“The author brings the story to life with well written scenes that capture the imagination while the suspense and drama draw the reader into the story and the characters are strong, bewitching and ensnare the readers from the very beginning.”
Night Owl Reviews, 5 Stars

perf5.000x8.000.inddWhat genre do your books fall into or is it a genre blended? I write romance (subgenres paranormal and fantasy) and urban fantasy. I’d call them all genre blended. <g>

What inspires you to write? Knowing someone, somewhere, might like this book. Also, the characters bug me until they get onto paper.

Do you listen to music or set the mood somehow to get writing? No music but there’s usually the hum of the TV in the background and the whine of our dog to stop writing and come play. Sipping on hot tea while in front of the computer usually helps me fall into a creative mood (provided the above mentioned dog is quiet!).

Do you come up with the plot or characters first? Hard one! It depends on the story. Usually it’s almost simultaneous. I have an idea for a story and the characters are part of that idea.

Do you have a favorite book of yours? Demon Lore and The Detective’s Dragon

Who would you consider an influence on your writing? Sherrilyn Kenyon, J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning

Tell me something quirky about yourself. I can’t leave the house unless the bed is made.

What do you aim to make people feel when they read your books? I want them to be sucked into the story and not want to put down the book.

What’s next for you? The second book in my Demon Huntress urban fantasy series comes out later in the year.

Do you sing in the shower? On occasion. It’s not pretty! <g>


As a Halfling with little magic, Jamie is barely considered a Draconi, his sole talent finding jewels and lost people. But when he dreams of a human female in trouble, he has no choice but to save her, even if it means crossing dimensions into a different realm. Unfairly accused and placed on administrative leave, Detective Ruby Parker is determined to regain her position on the Denver police force. When an attempt to kidnap her fails, she must learn to trust the stranger who appears from nowhere to help her. Unlike in Draconia, Jamie’s powers work in Parker’s world, his longing to wield magic finally fulfilled. But is working magic worth leaving his family and friends? When Parker realizes she loves Jamie, she must make a choice, follow her heart to a different world, or remain alone and attempt to regain her beloved job. What happens when the one you love lives in another dimension?


The squeak of hinges snapped Parker’s attention to the door. Hottie stood in the doorway, one hand on the frame, the other on the handle, a look of determination plastered on his face. A look she was familiar with. A look she saw reflected in her mirror on a daily basis. A look mirrored on her coworkers’ faces when working a case.

A look she never thought to see directed her way.

Which was a bit unnerving, but not nearly as unnerving as the realization he’d followed her. He stood in the doorway like he owned the place. Or owned her.

Her limbs shuddered like a car without shocks. He. Followed. Her. Was he stalking her? Was he with the ones who tried to kidnap her? What was he doing here? More to the point, how did she get rid of him? Her muscles might be coming out of a deep freeze, but that didn’t mean she could hop off the bed and toss him out the door.

Where was the damn call button?

Parker patted the mattress. Hottie took a step closer. Then another. No button. Her heart shook an uneven rhythm, the beat a warning drum in her veins. Her hand moved faster against the mattress, searching, seeking, not finding.

Damn it.

“Be of ease. I mean no harm.”

She stilled, her hand paused mid-pat as if his words flipped her off switch. Deep and soothing, his voice stroked across frazzled nerves, slowing her racing heart. If he could bottle that sound, women would fall at his feet.
