Cover reveal for CRASH!

CRASH, the second book in the Stone Kings MC series, is coming out on August 22!

CRASH-PRINT copy.jpg


She’s a good girl … from a world I left behind years ago. One where virtue and purity are all that matter. She’s never learned about desire, about lust. And how a fire can burn so hot that you’ll risk anything to quench the flames.

I’m going to change all that. She’s got a body that was made for pleasure — she just doesn’t know it yet. And I’m just the bastard to teach her.

She’s come to me for protection from the cold, cruel world. Trouble is, the thing she needs protecting from most of all … is me.


He was just a name — my only chance to escape from the way I was raised. I went to him in desperation, hoping for help, for refuge.

I found a man unlike any I’ve ever known. And now I understand: purity is easy when there’s no temptation.

His touch fills me with forbidden longing. He sets me on fire … until burning up sounds like heaven.



Daphne’s Deals for August 2016

It’s Daphne’s Deals for August 2016!

Hey, there, readers! It’s time for the second installment of my new feature, where I review three or four of the best free or discounted bad boy romances I read last month.

I read a LOT of books in July — hey, what can I say, when I wasn’t busy writing, I was spending time in my hammock.  And I have FOUR really exciting books to tell you about. Let’s get to it!

1) Roxie Noir, REIGN

I’m on such a Roxie Noir kick right now… last month I promoted her book RIDE, and this one is just as good! It’s got a great plot, involving a hot as hell Russian-y military hero who is also the heir to the throne of the fictional country of Slevoria. The heroine is feisty, sassy, hilarious and real. Trust me on this, you WANT to read this book. 99 cents on Amazon, free to read with Kindle Unlimited. GET IT HERE.

2) Sienna Valentine, WRATH: A Bad Boy and Amish Girl Romance

I just finished this book last night. It’s the third and final book in Sienna Valentine’s Brody Bunch series. The cool thing is, Sienna has included books 1 and 2 in with this book, so you can read all three of them just by buying this one.

The main story line is that three hot young men make a bet to see who can be the first one to seduce one of three young, beautiful Amish women they encounter. But, there’s more to the “bet” than meets the eye…

The premise of the series is really cool — each one of the books is stand-alone, BUT they interlink in a really interesting way, so each book gives you one part of the story. The more you read, the more you learn. Neat, eh? 99 cents, free with Kindle Unlimited.  GET IT HERE.


A lot of good sports romances came out in July. This is the first of two I’m going to recommend. Nikki Wild is a specialist at super, super-steamy sex scenes, and really tough bad boys. Her plots are really great, too — she knows how to keep an audience hanging. This book is about a superstar quarterback in the NFL, and a woman he shares a complicated history with that goes back to high school. I don’t want to tell you too much about the book, because the secret that Maisey is keeping from him is one you’ll want to discover on your own… 99 cents, free with KU.  GET IT HERE. 


This one is tearing up the charts, and I can definitely see why. It’s hot, fast, and a super-fun, page-turning read. James is a college football star who’s planning to go pro after he graduates, and Haley just can’t resist him, no matter how hard she tries. 99 cents on Amazon, free with KU. GET IT HERE.

That’s it for my August edition of Daphne’s Deals!

If you want to receive Daphne’s Deals as emails (I send them out once a month), as well as notifications of my new releases, sign up for my mailing list here:  http://eepurl.com/VVhh9 No spam, I promise!

Happy reading!



Book Two of the Stone Kings MC series will be released on August 22! This one is about Levi, Sergeant at Arms of the Stone Kings. I just loved the way it turned out, and I think you’re gonna LOVE it, too!

Here’s a sneak preview of the description — which I’m ONLY releasing right here:


She’s always been a good girl. Growing up the way she did, hidden away from the world, she was taught that virtue and purity were all that was important. She never learned about desire, about lust. And how they can make you risk anything to quench the flames. 

But I’m going to change all that. She’s got a body that was made for pleasure. She just doesn’t know it yet. And I’m just the bastard to teach her.

She’s come to me for protection from the cold, cruel world. Trouble is, the thing she needs protecting from most of all… is me.

Cover reveal day for CRASH is August 9! Watch this space for more info, or if you prefer, like me on Facebook and see it there!


RUSH: A Stone Kings Motorcycle Club Romance will be released on July 18!


The first novel in my NEW series, STONE KINGS MC, will be called RUSH, and will be released on July 18, 2016. 



I can’t stop lusting after a killer.

Greyson Stone is the president of the Stone Kings MC, and he’s seriously bad news. He’s big and bad, dripping with menace, and covered in tattoos. He has the kind of dominant swagger that should make me want to run away…

Instead, it makes me fantasize about him. Even though I know he’s a thug, even though men like Greyson caused the violence that ended my father’s life…

One rough, demanding night with Greyson, and I don’t know how to walk away. Even when life depends on it…


As the president of the Stone Kings, I have a few rules. Ride or die. Death before dishonor. And the club always, always comes before any woman.

Simple. Easy. At least, it is until I see her.

Big green eyes, killer curves, and that mouth… F*ck, the things I want to do to her. The second I saw her, I knew I wanted to make her mine. Ruin her for all other men.

I also knew that can’t ever happen, because I’m keeping a secret… and if anyone finds out, I’m not the only one who will get hurt.

One night with Seton in my bed, and suddenly I’m wondering… aren’t some rules meant to be broken?

Each novel in the STONE KINGS series will be completely stand-alone, HEA, with absolutely no cliffhangers.


Put RUSH on your Goodreads “Want to Read” list here: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30750682-rush

Each novel in the STONE KINGS series will be completely stand-alone, HEA, with absolutely no cliffhangers.

The second book in the series, CRASH will be released on August 22.


Daphne’s Deals – July 2016 Edition

July 1, 2016
Hello, dear readers:

Today, I’m launching a new feature of my newsletter, called Daphne’s Deals. What is “Daphne’s Deals”, you might be wondering?

Well, I’m glad you asked! 🙂
See, I read a lot of romance novels. And every once in a while, there’s one that I think is so good, I want everyone to know about it.  SO. I’ve decided that once a month, on or about the first, I’ll send YOU all a list of three or so books that I just love that are either free or 99 cents, plus a brief, personal review of why I like them.

They’ll have one thing in common: all of them are BAD BOY romances! Because ooohh, I love a guy with a tough exterior but a soft, creamy center, don’t you?

So, without further ado (imagine a drum roll here): Here’s DAPHNE’S DEALS, First Edition for July 1, 2016!


Okay, okay, my VERY FIRST recommendation and I’m already breaking the rules, because this one is on Amazon for $2.99. But in my defense, it was 99 cents when I decided to write about it and the price has gone up since then. But, I’m still going to tell you about it because…

Oh, my gosh I LOVE this book! In fact, RIDE is the book that gave me the idea to do this newsletter in the first place! Why? Because, simply put, cowboy romances do absolutely NOTHING for me. In fact, I don’t think I had ever purchased a cowboy romance before a friend told me this one was worth my attention. And you know what? I completely fell in love with this story, and with leading man Jackson Cody.  He is brash, arrogant, and all around irresistible! The chemistry between Jackson and Mae is absolutely fantastic, and sexy scenes are… well, let’s just say you won’t be disappointed. This book is funny, charming, engaging, and I promise you will love every minute of it.

Available on Amazon for $2.99, or free with Kindle Unlimited.


This book has been burning up the charts for a while now, so it’s not exactly a secret. If you like bad boy romances, you have probably at least heard of Sabrina Paige, and you’ve likely read at least one of her novels. But. There are two reasons why I’m recommending this one anyway;

First, I really love Killian the character. He’s hilarious, and Sabrina gives him some absolutely fabulous one-liners that had me laughing out loud. Plus, the sex scenes in this story are HOT.

Second, this book is the fourth and final one in Sabrina’s West Bend Saints series, AND if  you buy it, not only are the first three books included at the end of the novel, but Sabrina has also written a SPECIAL BONUS epilogue for Books One through Three! So you can go back and relive the happily ever afters of all your favorite West Bend Saints characters and find out what they have been doing since you last saw them! Cool!

Available on Amazon for 99 cents, or free with Kindle Unlimited


Lara Swann is a writer I just discovered this month, and CAPTIVE is the first book I’ve read by her. What I just love about this book is how feisty her heroine is! Alessa is a great blend of sheltered and tough in spite of it.  The premise of this novel is really unique, and had me flipping the virtual pages as fast as I could. This book is a great blend of suspense/action and a super-compelling love story between a stone cold killer and a mafia princess. How could you go wrong? 🙂

Available on Amazon for 99 cents or Free with Kindle Unlimited

WELL, THAT’S IT FOR THE FIRST EDITION OF “DAPHNE’S DELIGHTS,” just in time for the long Fourth of July weekend if you’re in the United States. Three perfectly sexy summer reads.

Have a great weekend!   – Daphne

I knew Smoke was bad news.  It was written all over him like the tattoos that lined his muscular arms. From the moment the vice-president of the Los Perdidos MC approached me with that panty-melting stare, I should have run far, far away.  But I’ve never been one to take the easy way out.

No matter how wrong it was, no matter how much I fought it, I couldn’t stay away.  My friends tried to warn me.  They tell me he’s dangerous.  They’re right. But with him, I feel more alive than I ever have.  Men like this don’t come with a white picket fence.  If I stay with him, I’m risking everything.  It’s his world or mine.  All out, or all in.  Once I choose, I can never go back.

Los Perdidos MC  is a full-length, standalone romance novel with steamy hot sex, strong language, a HEA and absolutely NO CLIFFHANGER.

Note: This edition of Los Perdidos MC contains a special bonus paranormal novella, Untamed Moon

Announcement: Kindle Unlimited

I have an announcement. I wanted to let my readers know that effective June 1st, I will start migrating my novels and novellas exclusively in Amazon.com, and making them free through Kindle Unlimited.

I apologize to any readers who are inconvenienced by this choice.  I wish I felt I had a choice in the matter, but at the end of the day, my books will reach more readers through Amazon exclusivity and KU.  On the plus side, I plan to offer ALL of my novels and collections at 99 cents for the near future, so even if you don’t have KU, buying them through Amazon has never been more inexpensive!

I will be publishing new editions of all of my books in my catalog through KU with bonus material in all of them, I will be advertising these editions to my mailing list as they come out. So look for emails in the coming weeks!






The first novel in my NEW series, STONE KINGS MC, will be called RUSH, and will be out sometime this summer (just as soon as I can get things wrapped up at my every-day job and start writing!!!).

This will be the start of a series of at least three novels (if my readers want even more of the STONE KINGS, I’ll keep writing more!).  RUSH will be out sometime in July, with the sequel, CRASH, out about a month after that.  Watch this space for cover reveals, and more info about our pair of star-crossed lovers, Seton and Grey.





Yes, it’s true!

Maybe you didn’t know that I wasn’t a full-time author.  Certainly, there are plenty of full-timers out there who only manage to publish a novel a year.  But I have been juggling (badly) a full-time career with my writing for three-plus years now.  And it’s been frustrating, to say the least. I have wanted so much to devote more time to writing, interacting with readers, and working to grow as an author.

Well, now the time is here. I said goodbye to my full-time job, and as of May 22, I’m going to transition to writing full-time.  Thankfully, my FANTASTIC husband is completely on board for this. So, get ready: Daphne’s gearing up!

I have been busily plotting out a new series, called STONE KINGS MC.  The first stand-alone volume, RUSH, will be out sometime around August 1st (more on that later).  I’ll be able to share the cover and some more details soon.







THROTTLE MC: A STEPBROTHER ROMANCE is available for preorder on Amazon

Only 99 cents to pre-order THROTTLE MC on Amazon! Grab it now before the price goes up!


I was still reeling from what had happened between me and Ryker that morning. It had been completely wrong, completely unexpected.

And the best sex of my life.

HADLEY is headstrong, beautiful, and sexy as hell. She’s also the daughter of the president of The Throttle MC. When Hadley comes back to town to reconcile with her past, little does she know the handsome stranger she meets by the side of the road is going to bring her a world full of trouble.

RYKER is the Vice President of The Throttle MC. He’s a reckless bad boy who can handle anything life throws at him… until the one woman he can never have plunges headlong into his life.

From best-selling author Daphne Loveling… a steamy new standalone novel you won’t be able to put down!

Throttle MC features sizzling romance, HEA, no cliffhanger and no cheating!


Hello again!

Hello, readers!

It’s been a looonnnnnggg time.

Life happened this past year… and boy, did it happen with a vengeance. But I’m back now, health and personal issues resolved.  Thanks to all of you who emailed me to express concern — it meant a lot to me to hear from you.

Well, now… I have a great surprise for you!  I’m just putting the finishing touches on my latest novel, Throttle MC: A Stepbrother Romance!  It’s going to be coming out on August 14 at all major e-retailers! For now, here’s a sneak peak at the awesome new cover!




New Release! Untamed Moon, only 99 cents on Amazon!

Untamed Moon, my new free-standing novella, is out now on Amazon.  Only 99 cents for a limited time only, and also available for borrow on Kindle Unlimited!


Intrigue, danger, and passion, under the Untamed Moon…

Walking home late one night, curvy Kait is abducted by two dangerous men who threaten to kill her if she doesn’t do what they want. Kait is rescued by an enormous gray wolf that jumps out of the shadows to fight the two men. What Kait witnesses that night is beyond her comprehension – especially when her wolf savior shifts before her eyes into the form of Tristan, a gorgeous human man.

What happens next throws the two strangers together in a world of danger and uncertainty, with only Tristan to protect them. And through it all, Kait knows she will have to make a difficult choice: will she abandon the only life she’s ever known to follow him – and embark on a future in which both their lives are at risk?

Note: Parts of this free-standing novella were previously published under the title Under The Wild Moon. Click now to purchase or borrow on Kindle Unlimited.


And now for something completely different… Here’s my writing buddy!


This is my little baby.  Her name is Petunia.  She sits by me as I write, and gives me a tummy to rub when I’m having writer’s block.  She loves twist ties, paper bags, and smooches on the face.  (Well, she only tolerates that last one, but luckily for me, she’s a good sport.)

She’s sitting next to me right now, actually, in my lovely new office, as I gear up for the new week and try to decide which of my long list of ideas will be the subject of my next story.

Have a fantastic evening, and a great week!

– Daphne


My writing space… part one

Husband and I are in the process of transforming my writing space.  It’s almost done, and I’ll be doing the BIG REVEAL soon!  I’m very excited.

In the meantime, though, here’s a picture of the coffee cup that sits next to me as I write. 


It’s a world map, yes.  Which reminds me that part of the reason I write is because I love to travel, and I want to retire to a place where I can continue to write my stories and novels on a beach somewhere… with a margarita next to me… okay, a pitcher of margaritas…

Okay, I’m getting carried away.  And it’s only 10 a.m.  Not time for happy hour yet.

But the other cool (but sad) thing about this cup is, when you pour a steaming-hot beverage into it, the heat transforms the image to show what the world map will look like in 2100 from the effects of climate change. 

Which reminds me of how precious our world is, and all the people in it.  And how important it is to not take the time we have on this planet for granted. 

Now, off to write.



Fugitives MC: The Novel is here!
