Good things are coming… (and maybe an excerpt)

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my blog. I’m way behind. So, this will be a giant post with a whole lot of information. Try to keep up.

Not typical

There’s coffee and chocolate at the end.

Before I jump into the technical, how about a treat!?

Ok, now back to the subject at hand.

I have a new release in about 2 weeks, ok, no in exactly 2 weeks. Alluring Infatuation, Book 4 Bayou Stix is coming at you… Up until yesterday, you’d have to wait until release day and one-click the book to have it delivered to your kindle.

Alas, that is no longer true!

You can now PRE-ORDER Alluring Infatuation and every other book you want to read (as long as the author enrolls it and submits it) from AMAZON and once it goes “Live”, it’s there, waiting for you to dive in.

Want the Pre-Order links? (Of course you do and I love you, so I’ll give them to you)

AI Pre-Order

In case you missed it, that’s the amazing cover for the book as well.

Alluring Infatuation, Dade’s story, releases Friday, August 29!

After Dade, comes Cruz, and wow… Cruz is quickly capturing my heart. I do hope he’ll capture yours as well.

Cruz’s story will wrap up the Bayou Stix Series and it’s slotted to be out later this year.

No worries though, I have TWO more series’ that I’m working on and the first is set to release early next Spring. Now, I’m going to warn you, neither is about rockers. But I hope you’ll stick around for the ride with my new babies.

More information will come about the new projects soon.

After much headache, rage, and deliberation, I have made the decision to NO LONGER be an Amazon exclusive author. Bayou Stix is available on iBooks right now and will be available on and Kobo in e-formats any day now. I’m simply waiting for them to be approved and available for purchase.

All future works of mine will be available on Amazon, B&, iBooks, and Kobo.

I will include all iBooks links here.

Alluring Turmoil, Book 1 Bayou Stix (Jude)
Alluring Seduction, Book 2 Bayou Stix (Jessie)
Alluring Ties, Book 2.5 Bayou Stix (Erik, Bradi, and Micah)

Does that appease you?

Alluring Infatuation
Book 4 Bayou Stix
© Skye Turner 2014
Swallowing, I nod again and then with a grimace, I head toward the parking lot.

I pass George on the way and he says, “Back left corner of the lot. White BMW,” with a wink.

Grinning, I call back. “Thanks, George. And thanks for letting me play tonight.”

He calls through the door as I race out, “You know you’re welcome anytime, Dade.”

I head in the direction George said and I see her leaning her forehead against the top of her car with the door open and throw her purse into the front seat.

I can tell she hears me approach, because her back goes ramrod straight. Yet, she doesn’t speak. Neither do I.

I just stand and watch her. I want to see if she’ll turn around or try to just drive off. Not that I’ll let her.

After about a minute, she turns and glares at me. “What do you want, Dade? Why did you follow me?”

I stare. She stares back. Finally, I cross my arms over my chest. She follows the movement before looking into my eyes again. Her brow arches in a silent challenge.

Damn, she’s stubborn. Ok, I guess I have to be the one to talk.

I laugh at both of us. She starts tapping her foot. It draws my gaze down. She’s wearing black sandals, her pants are white and form fitting. Her top is white with black lace trim. She looks very professional. Her jewelry is small and understated. She hardly resembles the woman I knew on St. John, but she’s still incredibly sexy.

With one final glare, she throws her hands in the air and whirls on her heel. “I’m over this! I don’t know what you want, but I don’t have the time or inclination to play!” She leans into the car and sits.

Before she can shut the door, I’m at her side.

She glares and mutters out through clenched teeth, “What do you want, Dade?”

Leaning down into a crouch, I give her about a foot of space. She retreats until her back hits the seat. I grin, “Hello, Melonie. We need to talk. Can we talk?”

“You’re in my personal space. Back up!”

Chuckling, I back up an inch. “There. Happy? And what’s the problem? Do I unnerve you?”

She slaps the steering wheel and mutters under her breath, “Does he unnerve me?! Egotistical bastard!”

I’m not a bastard. Ok, I am kind of acting uncharacteristically asinine. “I’m sorry. I honestly do want to talk. Can we talk, Melonie?”

She closes her eyes and leans her head back on the seat before opening them. She asks dejectedly, “Why? What do we have to talk about, Dade? What’s the point?”

Grabbing my hair before squeezing the back of my neck, I tell her honestly. “I’d like to talk about the stuff we didn’t talk about before. Can we do that? Without screaming at each other or flinging insults?”

Staring into my eyes, she rubs the middle of her forehead and purses her lips. She nods slowly. “Ok. But not tonight. I can’t. I’ve had a really long day and I have a surgery in the morning. I need rest.”

I let out the breath I was holding and smile. “Ok.” I reach out my hand, “Give me your phone.”

Her eyes widen and she opens and closes her mouth before she asks, “My phone?! What?”
I do hope you’ll check out the rest of Dade and Melonie’s story, FRIDAY, AUGUST 29!


And just because this excites me…
Look, I’m a “VERIFIED” Public Figure on Facebook. 🙂

I'm me!  Check me out.

I’m me!
Check me out.
