It is finally starting to smell a bit like spring in the Northeast. Every time I think it’s starting to look like spring, we get a cold snap, a snowstorm, or freezing rain, so I’m going to stop thinking that until we get a full two weeks above 65 degrees.
I’m excited to share with you the cover for the upcoming box set of the Hotel Safari series. It includes all six novellas plus a bonus short story. You can preorder it now exclusively on iBooks (and in about a week or so on Nook, Kobo, and Amazon). The Hotel Safari Complete Collection will release on all those vendors on May 2nd.
Hope you like the cover! I’m enjoying drooling over all those men in one place!
Finally, the fifth and last book in the Bright Park Romance series, Us All Along, will be releasing fairly soon!
Here’s what it’s about:
Maryanne Gates has always been “the shy girl,” but snotty comments from her roommate about her virginity has her desperate to change that image. She’s never felt more ready to gain confidence and lose her V-card. And she wants to do it with Dan, the sexy but cocky guy of her dreams. There’s one problem: even though Dan is single, it’s obvious he has a thing for Robyn, the nicest girl in Bright Park.
But Lake DuBois, Maryanne’s most outgoing and amusing coworker, could be the solution to that problem. Lake also likes Robyn, and if Maryanne helps Lake win Robyn over, Dan might move on and finally notice Maryanne.
It sounds like the perfect plan, but after spending so much time with Lake, Maryanne’s falling hard for him. Whether she risks their friendship by confessing her feelings or sticks to the original goal of a one-night stand, her future looks full of rejection with both Lake and Dan chasing Robyn. It would take an exceptional amount of courage for “the shy girl” to take action—if she even has a chance at all.
And here’s the cover, created by the always wonderful Addendum Designs:
Us All Along is expected to release March 24th! To keep up to date on new releases, feel free to sign up for Sibyl Eisley’s newsletter here.

Till Next Time,
Next month I’ll be launching a whole new series, the Corona Pride! Book 1, Savage Yearning, is the first in the series, and features Dristan and Laura, two side characters from one of the Sierra Pride books.
Here’s what it’s about:
When a one-night stand feels like so much more…
Mountain lion shifter Laura Vidal has been given two choices: leave the territory to find a mate, or become a guardian of the pride. Unwilling to leave the only home she’s ever known, Laura chooses the rigorous and bruising guardian training. Honestly, she’s glad for the training because it keeps her too busy to see Dristan, the guy who rocked her world during an amazing one-night stand.
Dristan Rhees can’t forget the girl who stole his heart after a single night of unbridled passion, despite the fact that she now won’t give him the time of day. But when vampires invade their territory, he and Laura are forced to work together. In order to defend their pride, they must confront the desire that still threatens to consume them.
And here’s the cover!
The next installment in the Hotel Safari series will release on January 10th and today I’m going to share its cover. Thai Rebound is the story of Elizabeth, Colin’s ex-girlfriend from Book 1, Pride of Africa. Elizabeth goes to Hotel Safari’s new property in southern Thailand to try to get over Colin and meets a local man, Chon, who was educated in France and is hiding a secret. Fans of the series will be able to guess the secret!
This one was especially fun for me to write because France is like a second home to me (just as it is for Chon) and elephants are my favorite animal. (Yup, Chon’s secret has to do with elephants.)
Since I’ve made you wait a really long time between installments, I’ve made an excerpt of Thai Rebound available via instaFreebie to tide you over until January 10th. Click here to download the exclusive excerpt (the book isn’t even available yet to pre-order from Amazon, and this excerpt is longer than what Amazon lets readers download for free as a sample). Enjoy!
And now, here’s the cover:
Fierce Lover is the final installment in the Sierra Pride series! I can’t believe it’s nearly here, but alas, all good things must come to an end. (All bad things must come to an end, too, but let’s assume, for my ego’s sake, that the Sierra Pride books fall into the “good” category overall.)
So Fierce Lover. Followers of the series can probably guess who the story’s about…
Starla Fournier never thought she’d see her loved ones again, and that included Rourke Mackenzie, her childhood friend. Plagued by guilt and shame from the circumstances surrounding her disappearance, she’s finally reunited with her family. The reunion is tainted by the knowledge that her adoptive pride is anxious for her return. Worst of all, seeing Rourke after all these years will make her question arrangements that have already been set in motion—arrangements that will interfere with their chance to be together.
A wolf shifter, Rourke Mackenzie has spent the last eighteen years trying to forget Starla. He finds absolution in the flames he battles as a firefighter, in the bottom of a bottle, and in the arms of a long string of one-night-stands. When he finally sees Starla again, the wolf inside of him wants nothing more than to claim her as his, but his human side can’t ignore the betrayal of her disappearance. Just when he thinks they’ll be able to resolve their differences, a dangerous shifter steps forward to claim her. Rourke will have to act fast in order to protect his mate.
Here’s the cover!
You may notice the animal on the cover is NOT a mountain lion. Oooooooh. Different. But don’t worry, there are still mountain lion shifters aplenty!
Fierce Lover will be released on December 7th, but in the meantime you can pre-order it on Amazon or AmazonSmile.
Have a great week, everyone!
I’m so excited to share the new covers for Books 1 and 2 in the Hotel Safari series! From Book 2 on, all the covers feature the character who is the shifter, so I changed Book 1’s cover to show Colin instead of Serena. And Book 2, well, my original version of Nelson looked a little too young and sweet for the kind of story he’s featured in.
I hope you like the new covers!
In case you haven’t read them yet, here’s where you can find them:
Pride of Africa

Book 4 of the Bright Park Series will be here next month!
Here’s a summary of the book:
Caelyn Jones hadn’t planned to have a guy as a roommate—especially one as cynical and disorganized as Drexel Blackford—but she’s not in a position to be picky. His apartment is by far the most convenient and affordable for her. And besides, Drexel’s super hot, and he’s not mean to her or anything. He just doesn’t show any desire to be her friend.
Still, Caelyn is determined to be an optimist, even while going through the heartache with her estranged parents and the silent treatment she’s receiving from her best friend. It doesn’t matter if Drexel’s the opposite of her in every way. She’ll find a way to become his friend, and ideally, something more.
But her positive thinking can only last for so long when there’s no one around to build her up. Drexel might be part of the reason she finally breaks down… but he also could be the only one to help put her back together.
And here is the cover, created by Addendum Designs:
Turn To Love is expected to release by November 25th, but possibly sooner! To keep up to date on new releases, feel free to sign up for Sibyl Eisley’s newsletter here.
For now, you can add it to your To Read list on Goodreads.
Till Next Time,
The penultimate Sierra Pride book is nearly here!
And who will find their HEA this time?
Cora Fournier can’t seem to get out from under her family’s watchful eye. Granted, her whole stint in captivity with the Nevada Pride has made everyone feel a mite overprotective of her. Still, she’s ready to move past her trauma until Jerome, alpha of the Nevada Pride, shows up with his son, Tyler. He wants to make peace with the Fourniers, and he’s offering them Tyler as a loyal worker and pride member. There’s one catch—according to pride law, in order to stay with the Fourniers, Tyler has to become Cora’s husband.
Tyler Brooks loved Cora all along. Tortured by his inability to win a challenge against his brother, who’d been intent on keeping her in captivity, Tyler has spent the last two years feeling weak and useless. Now that they’re free of his brother, he has a chance to prove to Cora that whether or not this marriage is on paper only, they belong together, and he will fight to keep her.
I’m looking forward to this one being out in the world. Right now you can pre-order Fierce Survivor on Amazon and AmazonSmile. On release day, 11/2/16, it will go straight to your kindle e-reader or app. I hope you enjoy it!
Broken Lynx Cover Reveal
Hotel Safari Book 4, Broken Lynx, will release on Amazon on October 10th.
This cover is a bit of a departure from the others in the series, as you’ll see. But the book is too. In Broken Lynx, we go back ten years to the time when Deirdre and Hans first met. Readers met the pair in the first book and got to know them better in Book 3. Now you’ll be on their journey toward falling in love.
First the blurb:
Broken heart need mending? Check into Hotel Safari.
Deirdre O’Connell is an Irish nurse who has lost everyone she ever cared about. She runs away to a job at the Hotel Safari Lodge in Kenya, never realizing she’s searching for a new life, a new family, and possibly a new love. While she longs to make friends, she doesn’t know how to trust.
Hans Schmidt is a German lynx on a mission to forget. Leaving behind a fiancée, his job, and the only life he has ever known, he takes the job of jack-of-all-trades at the lodge with no timeframe and no expectations. But when he meets the sassy nurse, his broken heart finds a new reason to mend.
Is friendship with Deirdre enough for Hans? Or will he show her their two injured souls can be perfect together?
And now the cover:
Behold, the cover reveal post for Book 6 in the Sierra Pride series! You will laugh, you will cry…actually, if you’re like me you might drool a little over the dude on the cover. Seriously, these models.
First, the description!
Justine Fournier has worked hard to gain the trust of the Corona Pride. Because they’ve been burned by espionage in the past, she needs to be especially tactful when hunting for clues to her sister’s disappearance. But the eldest brother’s return interferes with her snooping—Mateo watches her every move, and he asks too many questions. Homesick for her own pride, she struggles to convince herself that the all-encompassing, slow-burn attraction she feels for Mateo is merely pesky and, most likely, fleeting.
Mateo Corona can tell that Justine is up to something. Following her around to confirm his suspicions isn’t exactly a hardship—he’d follow her cute little butt pretty much anywhere. Control has always been his motto, but he thinks Justine’s trying to steal his control along with his family’s wealth. Even worse, she’s also stealing his heart.
And next, the cover!
Fierce Informer is available for pre-order on Amazon and AmazonSmile. It’ll be released on October 5th. I can’t wait to share it with you!
