Well like millions of others I grabbed my tickets and sat by anxiously hoping to hear my numbers called in that amazingly large Megamillions drawing. But just like everyone but one lucky individual in Maryland I came up about 6 numbers short. WHich means its back to the work world for me and back to the writing world as well.  I started yet another WIP. A Paranormal which is currently un-named and not completely thrashed out in my head. I can tell you this it has a very strong female lead character who seems to want to do all the talking right now. She is a sort of scientific Multi-breed, raised to hate and hunt her own kind. Her male counter part is a elemantal earth demon whose looking for his clans leader who vanished. Needless to say, Fate is about to give them both a very rude awakening!
I'll update you when I have more to share!
BTW - Lustful Reflections will be out on April 17- It my next Paranormal Menage!

And as promised here is the cover and (unedited) Blurb for my next release (end of April)

Lustful Reflections: A Witch Among Werewolves
Haylie Fairbanks is the youngest child in a legendary witching family. Of course being at the top of the magic food chain does not come without consequences. Wizards like Adrian Caproete will always be plotting your downfall. Now Caproete has enlisted some help from the plane lying on the other side of the mirror and he’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the Fairbanks. Include kidnapping Haylie and ransoming her for an amulet said to be able to drain a witch’s power.

Enyalios, Gar, and Anut are werewolf warriors of Eridu, a world parallel to our own and reached by stepping through the reflective surface of an enchanted mirror. The mission that brings them to our plane seemed simple enough when the wizard proposed it, but on look at their quarry and a chase through the open air market in Morocco proves that this is far from the easy snatch and grab they expected.

After realization that they cannot turn the beauty over to Caproete for any fee, the men decide to instead offer the Fairbanks elder an unexpected option. They would allow Haylie to remain in their keep until the danger passes. Of course none of the three expected the girl’s father to make a counter offer, one that could certainly be a pleasure to fulfill.

Now caught in a plot that could cost her family everything, Haylie must decide if she can submit to what is best for her family and give herself over to the care of the Werewolves. The very men who sought to kidnap and trade her to her enemy. Men who offer more than a home and family, but the hopes of a love unmatched by anything Haylie has ever known.

Here is a bit about my latest release:
One Night Rodeo

Author: JL Oiler

Publisher: Rebel Ink Press

Blurb:

Katherine Wright is on a mission. After her family’s name is smeared in the rodeo world by false accusations of drugging, Katherine struggled to keep the family ranch, the Flying W, afloat. Now with a bull who promises to be the next champion, she's heading back to the world of cowboys and bucking bulls. But nothing could prepare her for the untrusting looks from the pair of hot, twin riders she encounters. Offered an exchange of one ride for another, Katherine finds she's risking more than her family name.  She’s risking her heart.

After Koby McGuire is stomped and gouged by a bull, he and his twin brother, Keith claw their way back into the top of the rodeo circuit. Catching wind that the Flying W ranch is attempting a comeback, Koby sees a chance at a bit of payback to the family he blames for his injuries. The last thing he expects was Katherine Wright.

Keith has always shared everything with his brother from the rodeo to women. So when Koby ask him extract a bit of payback, Keith half-heartedly agrees. Unfortunately, the other half of his heart belongs to the object of his twins’ vengeance.

 With their worlds permanently connected by the twin boys Katherine's carrying, the three must find a way to overcome the attitudes and anger that keeps them at odds. However, a rival bull breeder would rather see Katherine fall beneath the hooves of the bull he knows is prime breeding stock than fall for the charms of the twin riders. Will all hope for the three lovers be crushed in the arena or is this one rodeo they're destined to win?
