New Release: Thief by Anitra Lynn McLeod

Hi All!
I just finished voting. Did you vote? If not, go! Every vote counts!

Okay, with that out of the way, I'd like to tell you all about a new Samhain release. Thief by Anitra Lynn McLeod JUST came out today and I'm about to go over and grab my copy.

I first read an excerpt the other day on THIS blog and fell in love! I needed more. Do you know how long it's been since I've felt that sort of instant attraction to a story? Too damn long. The characters sucked me right in and I just had to know more about them. I love when that happens to me. I guess because it happens so rarely. And don't you just love that cover? Those eyes...yum.

Anyway, here's a blurb, and below you'll see a link to the excerpt.
Thief is also available on Amazon Kindle.

On the edge of freedom lies a dangerous love.

Fringe, Book 1

Nothing has ever come easy for Jace Lawless, captain of the salvage vessel Mutiny. Forced into thievery after a virus unleashed by the InnerWorld Government killed his family, only one ambition burns at the back of his mind. Kill the next IWOG officer he has at his mercy.

Bargaining over goods with a middleman isn’t exactly his strong suit. But who in his right mind spends an entire salvage job’s profits on a woman, even if she has a body built for sin and eyes so fathomless a man could lose himself in them? He must be getting soft.

Once Kraft realizes Jace expects only the “cook” part of their cook-whore contract, she sets out to change his antiquated ideas about women. A challenge she relishes, especially if it earns her the freedom and money to get her own ship. Her big mistake is letting down her guard.

Shameless flirting only intensifies the itch to ride Jace hard and put him away wet—several times. It’s an itch it would be dangerous to scratch. Exposing her heart could reveal her secret, one that the still-grieving Jace must never know…or showing her mercy will be the last thing on his mind.

Warning: Contains a celibate ship captain who can’t abide swearing, a kick-ass woman with a marshmallow heart, a motley crew of misfits, interstellar battles, thwarted groping, sensual seduction, and a total bastard who owns his own planet.

Happy Reading!

A Little Bit Naughty--out now!


  1. Thank you so much for the shout out, Anne! I love this book and could barely wait to share it with everyone. :) And yes, everyone vote today, and then reward yourself by buying my book! :)

  2. I've been looking at this book, I've commented here and there about how the cover is very compelling and the the story is too. It is on my TBB list. And what anice friend you are Anne for helping out a friend.

  3. Hi Zina! And Anne is very generous! I am clueless with promotion and she's been helping me a lot. :)

  4. You're quite welcome. When I like a book I tend to tell the world about it. LOL

  5. Zina--I love that cover too! I don't even read sci-fi romance and I'm loving this story. It's so cool when an author can turn me onto a genre I thought I'd never read! :)

  6. Yay! I think people worry that it will be like a science lecture or something with a lot of jargon; it's actually very accessible. Especially this one with the western flavor. I mean, my female lead prefers a sword, my hero carries ancient sod-buster revolvers--no lasers or anything like that. It was a blast to write so I'm glad people are enjoying it. And it made it to #1 on MBaM for sci-fi. Oh, and Anne, your "A Little Bit Naughty" is still on the main top 10 list! :)

  7. Anitra--I think that's what I love about this story. It's so original and fresh! As a reader, it's almost a relief to step outside my usual reading material and find something new and different.

    And congrats on the #1 spot! =)

  8. Thank you! And to you for holding on to a top 10 spot. :)
