Releases April 5, 2016
Here is the new cover for Diamond: Beyond the Red Door. I LOVE IT! Jennifer over at Gunpowder Designs did an amazing job! She designed the first cover as well, but it was already taken. Plus, it really didn’t say, Post-Apocalyptic, Dystopian with some Sci-Fi and Alien Contact. This however, in my opinion does. Or as a friend of mine said, more “medieval/low-tech action fantasy.” LOL
Release date is set for April 5, 2016. No blurb just yet, I will work on that after revisions are complete and its off to the editor so we can go back and forth on the story. This way, the blurb is spot on. But I do have buy links! I know I said this via video, but not everyone wants to see my goofy face on screen. (Which is totally fine) Diamond is not a romance, there is no HEA, because Diamond is not a romance. This is the first in my ν Vices series. It’s going to be wild and gritty, with tons and twists and turns. Oh and alien contact! I had a blast writing this story, and as I go through revisions, I’m reminding of all the fabulous ideas I originally had for this story. Some are being incorporated, while others will have to wait.
Will there be sex? (Grins) but of course, but no promises are made, and half the time they are not going to have time to get down and dirty. This is of course post, end of times. They are still trying to get their balance, and make things work. That’s all I can say about that for now.
Here are the buy links for Diamond, you can pre-order now so that you’re all set come April 5th!

With whispers of a rebellion inside the halls of the Academy, Gen is forced to choose sides. but the last thing she expected to deal with was a war between Vampires and Gen Ones. She’s unable to handle her relationship with Xander. A relationship that’s tenuous. With talks of an impending raid ensuring devastating results, she turns to the unlikeliest of allies. Adam Reynard.
Faced with the constant threat of slavery, Genesis is forced into making a decision that will change the course of her life. Will she join the rebellion, or will the crushing weight of The Genetics Council doom her and the entire race of Gen One’s.
Warning: This book contains a geeky, secretly insecure but overly cocky handy-man with a penchant for pleasing, a dominatrix in training who’s on the rebound, and enough smut to strip a couple layers off your soul. Plus there’s mac n’ cheese with a smattering of self-actualization for good measure.
After Chloe Barrons’ fiancé cheats on her via webcam, she begrudgingly accepts her Type-A mother’s offer of a spur of the moment luxury spa weekend. But things don’t play out quite from point A to point B when she arrives drunk and disoriented on the front porch of a deserted North Carolina beach house. From the very start she’s caught off guard by Noah XXX, a sinfully sexy, self-proclaimed commitment-phobe who’s a handyman for his sister’s relationship rehabilitation center—a rehab where Chloe is the sole guest during off-season.
But faced with temptation, to stay guarded she’ll have to call the shots.
Noah Knightly shouldn’t have taken Chloe’s reservation. But in need of a second pair of hands to fix up the beach house, he throws all his sister’s rules out the window. Soon he worries that maybe he’s bitten off more than he can chew: each day Chloe cracks more of his cocky façade bringing down his guards to reveal a stuttering geek who has a hidden will to please her in any way possible.
With no way to ignore her pain, Noah sets himself up as a guniea pig to prove to Chloe that not all men are created equal—in or out of the bedroom. As Chloe comes into her own through every sexual session, Noah needs to decide if he’s man enough to accept the one thing he never thought he wanted—love.
Elise Hepner lives with two spastic cats and a very supportive, slightly crazy husband. There is never a dull moment in the house, unless the caffeine runs out, which it never does. She’s a multi-published erotica author with Cleis Press, Ellora’s Cave, Xcite, and Secret Cravings Publishing.
She’s driven by her tea addiction and a tiny stuffed turtle her husband picked up from Disney World that sits on her desk and “supervises” her work.
When not writing (which is rare), she’s watching countless hours of reality television, playing the Sims or shopping online. Plus there’s that odd obsession with the color purple. Everything is purple. Visit Elise at her website www.elisehepner.com to keep up with her naughty ramblings, random tidbits and future work.
