Happy Early Halloween!
Yay, school's back in
session and autumn's here! Leaves have been turning in my area, lots of vivid
reds and brilliant oranges. We've got cooler temperatures, pumpkins growing fat
in patches, and ghouls gearing up for spooking. But in the meantime,
we've been pleasantly surprised with a very productive garden. Nummy sweet corn
that's just about through,
fat juicy tomatoes I've been canning and freezing, squash out the ears, and scorching-hot jalapeno peppers.
Speaking of scorching hot, I have LOTS of exciting things to report including two
recent releases, a brand new release, an upcoming reissue, a members-first
steamy snippet in Excerpts, a bunch of news in the Appearances section, a
contest winner, and a new BIG-WIN holiday contest for you to enter.
As always, thanks for subscribing. Until next
time, stay HOT
between the sheets!

Just released October 1!
by Titania Ladley
Western-Historical Paranormal Ménage
Now available at
Red Sage Publishing as part of the Three Kinds of Wicked
I'm excited to
announce that Renegade & His Rebel is now out! It's part of the Three Kinds of Wicked ménage series
which launched July 1, 2009
with Wicked Temptation by fabulous author Liane Gentry Skye. The first of
approximately 10-12 loosely connected ménage stories,
Wicked Temptation begins the journey of
Trey, a time-strider who will appear in every story of the series including my
Renegade and His Rebel. (Each is a standalone.) The series also includes stories by talented
authors such as Alice Gaines, Anne Rainey, Mia Varano, Selah March and Calista Fox, to name
a few, with more on the horizon. In the Excerpts section, I've chosen a steamy
sample for members, one that hasn't yet been posted elsewhere at the time of
this writing. I hope you enjoy RAHR
featuring my fun hellion and gun-toting heroine, Rebel, and her rugged and very
determined, estranged husband, Renegade. For more samples, see my website and the
Red Sage website.
Reissue coming Soon!
Got Irish Male
Irish Male, currently available from Ellora's Cave in the Enchanted Rogues anthology
in both ebook and print formats, will be reissued as a single title in ebook. It
will remain as part of the Enchanted Rogues print anthology, but
the entire e-anthology will no longer be available. The release
date for You've Got Irish Male is yet TBA, but I'm hoping for
a February or March date given its St. Pat's/Irish theme. Watch here
in the newsletter for its reissue release date announcement. Read

October, 21 2009:
Every third Wednesday beginning in October, I
will be discussing movie reviews at Michelle M. Pillow and
Mandy M. Roth's blog, The Raven Happy Hour. Although I already do
short movie reviews on all genres here in the newsletter, at
The Raven Happy Hour
I will focus on paranormal movies only. The
reviews will be more in-depth than they are here, and they will, at
times, include some new releases straight from the movie theatre. Be
sure and bookmark this fun and very active blog! I will conduct
contests, some announced as such, some "secret", so those who
comment could win at any time. *winks really big at members*
► Do you tweet? Yes,
I've gone and done it. I'm now on Twitter. Please go follow me, and
I'll turn around and follow you, too. I guess that means we'll both
just be going around in circles like two cats chasing our tails.
► I have a new
BLOG! Well, it's not exactly new. I
started it a year ago and let it slide because I wasn't too blog
savvy at the time, but I'm getting better at it. :) So I'll be doing
frequent posts of various things from news to fun miscellaneous
stuff to other-author books to recipes, whatever. If you'd prefer to
keep up with my news on a more frequent basis, be sure and bookmark

Ti's Movie Recs
Here are my latest
MOVIE RECS complete with my personal ratings
out of 5 stars...
~ 4.5 stars...
A Korean War vet played by Clint Eastwood faces his own prejudices while coming
to love and protect his Hmong immigrant neighbors from thugs. Eastwood does a
great acting job while also directing.
The Curious Case of Benjamin
~ 4.5 stars... Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett star in this romantic drama adapted
from a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. A boy born old and wrinkly becomes
younger-looking and stunningly handsome
(well, it is Brad Pitt after all)
as he ages. Loved this movie.
Million Dollar Baby
~ 4.5 stars... I've said this before -- Hilary Swank is one of my fave actresses, and
she doesn't disappoint in this one. An amateur female boxer talks two older
trainers into backing and training her for the pros. A real tear-jerker.
The Wind That Shakes the Barley
~ 4 stars... Military drama set in 1920s Ireland (beautiful country!) in which
brothers are pitted against one another on opposites sides of the war.
~ 4 stars...
A man turns to a vigilante group after his son is murdered and police are
unable to find the perpetrator.
An American Crime
~ 4 stars... A psychotic single
mother with too many kids takes in boarders (2 teenaged sisters) for extra
money, and tortures and kills one in her basement. The acting is very well done
in this shocking drama based on real events. NOTE: Not for the faint of heart.
Gone Baby Gone
stars... Murder mystery. Stars Morgan Freeman and Casey Affleck. (I like
Casey as an actor much more than his brother, Ben). Not a bad rental.
~ 3.5 stars... I love Liam Neeson, and in this one, he portrays a devastated but
determined father when his young daughter is kidnapped. As an ex-spy, he uses
all his detective skills and smarts to save her.
The New World
stars... Set in the 1600s, this is the epic adventure of explorer John
Smith and Native American Pocahontas. Stars Collin
and Christian Bale. Good rental if you enjoy historicals with a bit of romance
and history in them.

stood before the hearth enfolded in Trey’s embrace. He released the
tie in her braid and lovingly combed his fingers through the
shimmering tresses. The mass tumbled down her slim back, reaching
her hips in a cascade of gilded platinum. Renegade swore under his
breath, his gaze glued to the feminine, silky mass. He vividly
remembered what it felt like to tangle his hands in the strands and
to bury his nose in its thickness. Even now, he could almost smell
the fresh scent of her while in the throes of lovemaking.

heart picked up its pace, his pulse now thudding in his ears. He
inched closer to the window, shocked by the voyeuristic hard-on that
tented his jeans. Holding his breath, he leaned nearer to the glass
for a better view. She still wore her usual button-down lad’s shirt
and breeches. Trey reached up and slid the shirt from her shoulders.

had been thinner on their wedding night, though still feminine and
extremely desirable. Their wedding kiss had hinted at the woman
beneath the lad’s costume, and his later prison fantasies had
conjured up the tantalizing memory of her lean nakedness. Yet,
somehow in his absence, she’d blossomed and become even more shapely
than he recalled. Yes, he’d seen evidence of her lush womanhood in
the saloon earlier this evening, but nothing could compare to the
flesh-and-blood sight of her boyish shell being shed before his very

twin globes of her rear, pulling them apart until Renegade got the
most erotic view of her small puckered anus.

he hungered to watch his wife blooming like a delicate flower before
his eyes, he rapped his knuckles against the windowpane to halt the
tantalizing sight. Tense, he started toward the door to end the
maddening, seductive scene, but something stopped him. He didn’t
know if it was the irresistible sight of Trey playing with her ass,
or watching her climb up Trey’s big body like a starved kitten, but
some warm, strong force held him rooted to that spot. While the two
made love inside the warmth of Renegade’s home, they didn’t appear
to notice him standing directly before the window gawking at them.
It was as if he dreamed it all, as if he were a ghost unable to
reach into the world of the vibrant living.

the chill couldn’t possibly cool the odd, heated mixture of fury and
lust that thrummed through his blood and constricted every muscle in
his body. He planted his palms on the cold glass, trembling from
boots to crown as Trey disrobed. Trey’s body shone powerful and fit
in the firelight, the flexed mass of muscles defined by the play of
light and shadows. When Trey angled toward the window, Renegade saw
a curious tattoo of oval links snaking up his left arm and crossing
over to entwine around a heart on his chest. The marking made the
man seem even more masculine. But Trey’s impressive, long cock
poised in anticipation of passion achieved that undeniable quality
Renegade’s own shaft went harder, the fabric of his pants tightening
across his groin. He reached down and stroked himself to ease the
heavy ache. Wicked images filled his head of Renegade and Trey
ravishing Rebel together, steeping her in all-male attention and
bringing her to the very brink of feminine sexual madness. Renegade
had had his fill in the past of promiscuity and hedonistic
pleasures. Still, the fantasy with Rebel and Trey shocked him. This
was his one and only wife, yet the idea of immersing the tomboyish,
innocent woman in that sort of carnal awakening proved so tempting
that he could think of little else.
watched the scene with a hunger for more, his temper banked by the
heat of his rising ardor. It was with that yearning that Renegade
hungrily watched Trey kneel naked before Rebel, coaxing her down
before the fire in a tangle of limbs and passionate kisses. When she
opened her legs wide for Trey, urging him to claim her, Renegade
experienced a sudden popping release. Not to be left out, he bolted
from the window and burst through the door, the ravenous wolf
determined to join the wild pack in sin and carnal obsession.
