Cover Reveal for When Darkness Whispers by Lisa Carlisle (@lisacbooks)

I’m excited to share this news because I’ve worked on this book for years. I’ve written and rewritten it as there is so much packed into the pages. It’s thrilling–and somewhat terrifying–to announce. Perhaps because it’s a project I’ve worked on for so long, it seems strange not to work on it.

So here it is. The cover of my upcoming release, When Darkness Whispers!

Some memories are better left forgotten…

Haunted by an unclear past, biologically enhanced Marine, Eva Montreaux, can’t be distracted from her mission. With American troops being brutally murdered on the island of Okinawa, it’s more than priority. It’s critical. But when her investigation brings her face to face Marcos Delacruz, it triggers memories. Ones she lost. Memories that somehow include him.

Marcos Delacruz has tried to forget the woman who left him with nothing but empty promises. Even now, three years later, Eva doesn’t seem to express any guilt over breaking his heart. In truth, she seems to barely recognize him. This deployment has been challenging enough with too many restless spirits haunting the island. But when his own investigation forces him to cross paths with her once more, Marcos discovers there may be a deeper truth.

With the number of murders claiming rapidly and the rising need to track the murderer across the tropical island, Eva struggles to reclaim what she lost. But the island holds darker elements–a serial killer. One that doesn’t appear to be human.

Thrust into a world she can’t escape, Eva must discover a way to stop a murderer from destroying anyone else’s future, but how can she succeed if she can’t even remember what role Marcos played in her past?

      When Darkness Whispers is a unique blend of paranormal and military romance you won’t want to put down! If you like haunting mystery, spine-tingling suspense, and Japanese mythology, you will love When Darkness Whispers!

New release: Dress Blues, a second chance military romance, by Lisa Carlisle (@lisacbooks)

I’m thrilled to share my new release, one I started over ten years ago. I completed last year once I had the perfect setting for my couple to reunite — a cat shelter fundraiser!

Dress Blues

A Second Chance Military Romance

Sometimes, it all comes down to timing…

Volunteering at a cat shelter is much calmer than the adrenaline-fueled skirmishes of Vivi Parker’s last deployment in the Marines, but her limp is a constant reminder of what she endured. The shelter is her sanctuary, her one relief from memories that haunt her. At a fundraiser, she runs into a man she could never have while she served, but had never forgotten.

Active duty had its challenges, but starting over as a civilian in Boston is more difficult than Jack Conroy anticipated. When his mom and sister drag him to a cat benefit, he never expects to see a woman he last saw wearing Dress Blues.

Vivi fears she’s no longer the woman Jack was drawn to, able to tackle rock climbing walls or other outdoor challenges. And Jack has decisions he must face.

Military rules forbade their burgeoning passion. But now, years later, the rules have changed.

Yet, so have they.

Is it ever too late for a second chance at love?

Have You Met the Blood Courtesans? (@lisacbooks)

I LOVE this series, so when I had the opportunity to write in this multi-author series, I jumped for it. Here’s a bit about the world, and my contribution to it, Pursued. 

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans.

Where vampires are real, rich, powerful–and hungry.

Blood is bought and sold like fine wine, and the best blood goes to the highest bidder.

It’s not supposed to be about love…until it is.

Meet the Blood Courtesans: Standalone Vampire romances set in Michelle Fox’s Blood Courtesans world by NY Times and USA Today Bestselling and Award-Winning Authors. All books have an HEA and can be read in any order.

Pursued: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance

MiaIt was only meant to be three nights…

After watching my mother die, becoming a Blood Courtesan is key to my future in medicine. With loans racking up, all I have to do is pretend I want the money for tuition, and I’m hired. No one can know the real reason for wanting this job.

But it isn’t as easy as it first seems. On my first night as a courtesan at a ball in Salem, I meet vampires for the first time—and flee.

Vampires are not easily dissuaded. And one in particular, Renato, offers me a proposal I find difficult to resist. He has a dark, smoldering appeal that lures me in. Plus, I might gain the insight I seek.

I’m supposed to provide a service and will be paid well for it. But my feelings complicate our arrangement—and endanger my life.

It was only meant to be three nights, but can I walk away now?

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans…where vampires are real and blood is a commodity.

It’s not supposed to be about love…until it is.
