Works in Progress & Coming Soon

The Last Emperor

The tribes were his to lose…and theirs to regain.

History taught that rebels executed the imperial family, including young Prince Nika Marisek, and hid the bodies in an unmarked grave. History was wrong.

Decades later, yarn shop owner Nick Goode reclaimed his identity to see his long-dead family decently buried. He’ll do whatever he must to persuade elders who now rule the tribes…even offer to abdicate. Some, however, seek to capitalize on Nick’s survival. Who better to drag the tribes from corruption into freedoms the rebellion had promised if not the prince who became one of the peasantry in exile?

Arit hates politics. When Elder Benjic, his estranged sire, shows up with the celebrity prince to fulfill a pre-war mating pact, Arit refuses. He craves strength on strength, the challenge of an alpha mating another alpha. A damaged omega who knits won’t do. Arit will guide them on an adventure tour exploring their wolf instincts; that’s his job. But that’s all he’ll do.

Except Nick isn’t an omega. He isn’t damaged. And if he seduces Arit to win Benjic’s support, Nick won’t give up his throne, either. He’ll risk everything to realize the ideals of the rebellion…and end his fate as the tribes’ last emperor.

    Loved “Lovely Wicked” I sure hope you write the sequel, the storyline is incomplete and doesn’t have the happy ending we all want.

  3. Marilyn says:

    What Rough Beast – I loved the book and am looking forward to the next one. Please let me know when it will be out or if you have any exerpts.

    Love your work

  4. Jilly says:

    Please please PLEASE write the sequel to Lovely Wicked!! I read a lot & tend to forget the characters/plots 2-3 books later – but these guys are staying with me. I need to know what happens. Please put me – and them – out of our misery. Let Sam have his day.

  5. Dawn says:

    Ok, am I crazy??? I would have sworn I read a blurb for a sequel to Spoils of War. I can vaguely remember some details from it. However I don’t see it anywhere. Did I make it all up? lol…. If so, are there any plans for a sequel? I certainly hope so. Thanks!

    • Kari says:

      No, no, no, not crazy at all and yes, the sequel to Spoils is in the works. I had a blurb for Plunder (the Spoils sequel) up. I took it down when these other contracts started rolling in because I didn’t want everybody to go bug-eyed over so many projects in the pipes. I, Omega will release in September, Collared will release in late October (I think?). Then In the Red and then Plunder. I just took Plunder’s blurb down because I thought it’d look too cluttered. Once I Omega releases, I can move IO’s stuff to my released books page and free up room on the in-progress page so it doesn’t look so maniacal.

      Sorry for the confusion!

  6. Cornelia says:

    I absolutely adored your book “I Omega”, is there perhaps a sequel planned? I would love to read more of Cal and his sweet omega.

    • Kari says:

      Did I write IO planning a sequel? No. Could I imagine returning to that story world, though? Oh yes. It really depends on readers. While — for now — I can’t see Gabriel and Cal getting a second book entirely to themselves, I can definitely see writing another story in that world with Burke (for example) as one of the primary heroes, but still has Cal & Gabriel in it. IF readers are interested. That said…I’m also already scheduled into spring. (As soon as In the Red is turned in, I’ll return to Plunder and a heretofore unmentioned m/m Dystopian zombie apocalypse story.)

      Clear as mud, I know — sorry! Glad you liked I, Omega!

      • Dawn says:

        I would love to see more books based on the
        I, Omega storyline! Lots of places to go with it!!!!

        I’m also very excited about Collared!

  7. Amber says:

    I would be interested in an ‘I Omega’ sequel. It was a really great book, and super sexy. I got especially attached to Gabriel and would like to see how he’s doing in his Omega role and adapting to everyone, though you started them on the road to HEA. I also love Cal’s possessiveness while still taking very great care of his pet. Great balance. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Burke though. He seems like an interesting character and I like how he was the first of the pack to really be nice to Gabriel, offering him a drink, etc. Anyway, I really enjoyed the book so I figured that I would tell you I was very interested/would for sure buy a sequel.

  8. Ginger Williams says:

    I think your wrong about a sequel to “I’Omega.” It would be great to see the story continued. Don’t think daddy is going to give up without a fight and we need to see Gabriel assume his role as Omega and earn his place in the pack. Then Burke’s story would be a great follow up. Maybe even somewhere down the line see Jake mature and take a bigger role in the storylines. I think you could have a long running series with this “world.”

    • Megan says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more! Just loved those two and would love to revisit them.

      • debbie says:

        I agree…there could be more to the story. I don’t think Gabriel’s senator father would let go so easily. Gabriel also needs to earn his place in the pack just like anyone coming into the pack. Also, Gabriel working..How will Cal handle it. Also, so many characters in this one that you could write…the possibilities are endless..Burke, Jake, etc.

  9. Sasha Devlin says:

    Finished Collared this morning and I LOVED it! I sincerely hope you take a journey back to that world (dare I hope for more from Connor, Emmett and David?!).

  10. orannia says:

    I’m with Sasha 🙂 I finished Collared this morning and found the premise and setting very interesting. I’d also like to see where Connor, Emmett & David go from where we left them…

  11. Kim B says:

    i ust read in the red in one sitting. Loved it when is the sequel coming out

    • Kari says:

      Hi, Kim! Glad you like ITR! As for the sequel…It depends on what readers want more — the sequel to In the Red or the sequel to my November release, Collared. Whichever readers want most between the two will be written first. 🙂

      • Nancy says:

        You’re kidding, right? ITR clearly needs closure and I hope that the sequel is sooner rather than later. Great story, great characters — loved it!

      • Theresa B. says:

        I agree with Nancy, if I don’t get a sequel to itr soon I just might lose it!!!! Pretty please with sugar on top??? 😉

        • Amanda Jo says:

          I NEED the sequel to In the Red. I have to know what happens next. EEK! I just want to see how that all finishes. Please! I’ll beg and everything!

  12. CaryLory says:

    OMG— just finished In the Red and I Omega also read Collared— all terrific compelling reads.
    All need sequels–soon —- Please!!!

    • Kari says:

      Glad you liked them! IO’s sequel idea is still growing. What readers want will determine which sequel comes first between Collared and In the Red. Early days yet, too early to tell. 🙂

      • Charles Hanks says:

        I have to agree with CaryLory… they all were excellent reads, and all deserve sequels, although Collared wins the race by a nose in my opinion (I’ve been waiting longer for it… *shrug* 😀 ). Also, while I am very interested in in Burke’s story from IO, I kinda have to agree with Ginger Williams about a second story with Gabriel and Cal… I loved the chemistry between them, and I’m curious about what happens next.

  13. CaryLory says:

    Any news on upcoming print books? Love to have and keep the books.

  14. Sharon says:

    I just finished reading “In the Red” and LOVED it! I’ve read three of your books so far…. first “I, Omega”, then “Collared” and now “In the Red”, and with each book I’ve come to love your writing more and more! After reading ITR I jumped on the internet in hopes of finding out when the sequel will be written.
    As much as I loved “Collared”, can I cast my vote for “In the Red” as to which sequel will come first.

    And I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a sequel to “I, Omega”, but I’m hoping for more of Gabriel and Cal. I really want to see how they both work together within the pack, and I’m just not ready for them to fade into being secondary characters yet.

    • Kari says:

      I’m pleased you like this fall/winter’s crop of books, Sharon! I’ll definitely mark you down as in favor of ITR’s sequel. 😉

  15. Sue Gavalis says:

    I just finished In The Red, and I read Collared last month. I loved both, so picking which one I liked best is hard, but my pick is ITR. What I loved about it is the mystery behind the love story. Don’t get my wrong, I love a story with great sex scenes, but a great book has it all. Great sex, great main characters that click, good supporting characters, and most of all, a strong storyline to tie it all together.

  16. Becky says:

    I just finished Collared. I came right over here to see if there was a possible sequel coming. I’d love to read more about those characters!!

  17. jen says:

    spoils of war best book ever!when does #2 come out?

    • Kari says:

      I haven’t signed Plunder so I don’t have a release date yet, but I’m actively working on it right now. If you have twitter, follow me — I sometimes tweet lines from it. 😀

  18. Dagmar says:

    Can’t really decide. Collared? In The Red? I, Omega? I will buy either.

  19. Brett says:

    I read “I, Omega” last night and finished “Collared” today. They are both fantastic books! I loved the characters so much, and the setting were very unique. I’ve never read anything quite like them, and I came to your website eagerly hoping to find out there were sequals planned!

    I would love to see more of Cal and Gaberial and world you imagined for them. I think there is deffinitely a second story there, possibly with the Senator. And I could still see the potential for trouble brewing within other packs, if Gabrial is as rare and coveted as he was made out to be. I’m sure that there would be someone stupid/desperate enough to think a bond could be broken and then re-forged.

    I would love to read a sequal to “Collered” as well. I loved that you the characters ended up in this fragile sort of trangle between the three of them, however I can see alot of potiental for more. Working out the logistics of that kind of relationship, expecially between two dominate personalities who have had their agressions centers re-wired. Finding the balanced between them would be fun to explore, as well as the ‘interesting’ laws that were being passed. Even the addition of another preadator lusting after Conner…

    Anyways, I will eagerly await (and pray) for a sequal to both, and in the meantime will keep an eye out for future titles from you. Thank you for sharing them with the world! 😀

    • Kari says:

      FWIW, the IO sequel has been steadily cooking in the back of my skull and although I can’t say a lot, Cal and Gabriel will be front & center in it. It will be told from Burke’s POV and focus on a relationship centering on him, but Cal & Gabriel are intimately involved with it all. Yes, you’ll meet the good senator (poor Burke, LOL). IO2 isn’t actively on the table yet, but just wanted to say that story is coming together nicely. 🙂

  20. Liz Penn says:

    Ditto with many of those up above.

    I’ve read ITR, IO, SoW, and Collared now. Loved them all in various degrees. My vote is IO first (bc I’m a paranormal sort of gal and I want to see more about the pack rules in this world and how Gabe fits in) then a tie between SoW and Collared for me. Then ITR near the end. But that’s me. 🙂

    Zombie apocalypse? Intriguing.

    • Kari says:

      Wow, glad you liked all of them. WOOT! If it helps any at all, I have gotten farther with my idea for IO’s sequel. I have a stronger sense of it. 🙂

  21. Dawn says:

    Hey, Kari…
    Got an excerpt from your next book, yet??? Sneaking a peek ahead
    keeps some of us sane while we’re waiting for that next book!

    Love all of yours so far!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kari says:

      An excerpt from which one? LOL! I’ll think about posting a short sneak peek of either Plunder or Dead Reckoning over the weekend on my blog, but if I get a slew of emails from pubs wanting it (haven’t signed it anywhere yet), it’ll be on your head. 😉 Hey, if you’re on twitter, I sometimes tweet lines from WIPs. Have already tweeted several lines from Plunder – YAY!

  22. Dawn says:

    Just read the excerpt from Plunder—-WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Can’t wait until this one is out!!!

  23. Jenna says:

    Love all of your books! I don’t care which one gets a sequel first as long as they all get one eventually 🙂 Although, I must say I have re-read I, Omega twice now and would LOVE to hear more of Cal and Gabriel’s story….but then again, I’d love to hear more stories from the Collared world! Going to read In the Red now, keep up the good work! 🙂

  24. Kellie says:

    Hi Kari

    Have enjoyed both Lovely wicked and In the red.. but if its going to vote.. I would love to see the sequal to In the red asap!


  25. Beth says:

    I just stopped by to see if there was a sequal to “in the Red”. I just finished it and have to know what happens next!!!!! Please tell me when their story is continued. I have so many questions but don’t want to spoil anything for anyone else here.

  26. Kari says:

    Hi, guys! I’m actively working Plunder (Spoils of War sequel) and Dead Reckoning (zombie dystopia), but yes, there is a sequel for In the Red planned. Glad you liked Brian and Zachary! 😀

  27. Linda says:

    Love the writing and the intriguing character development of “broken yet fixable” characters….

    Granted, I am ‘way older’ than most of your readers, lol….I am shamelessly looking forward to the sequel of ‘In the Red’ – gripping, funny, a real page turner….and I’d have to say, my favourite so far…although ‘I, Omega’ seems to have a way of ‘sticking with you’ well after you’ve read the last page 🙂

    Looking forward to reading more of your writing, in the near future – now that I’ve finally started to get use to ‘not having real pages to turn’

    Keep up the great work, Cheers 😉

  28. KMorgan says:

    Please, please put the sequel to ITR at the very top of your list. It’s such a cliffhanger that it’s driving me crazy!!

  29. Tomeka says:

    Just doing a check when Plunder is scheduled to come out.

    • Kari says:

      Hey, Tomeka!

      I haven’t made the announcement yet, but Plunder has been contracted so it’s pushing forward. As soon as I know the release date, trust me, I’ll bellow. 😀

  30. Kristi P says:

    So glad sequels are coming! I’m also looking forward to the zombie story…who knew zombie stories could be sexy?! Any news on when Dead Reckoning might be released?

    AND, if we’re voting…ITR is still my favorite, so a sequel would really rock! Thanks for all of the great characters.

    • Kari says:

      I tabled Dead Reckoning (working title of the zombie story) so I could finish up Plunder. I’ve got a fair bit of the zombies done, but I haven’t pitched that story to anyone yet. Which is kind of funny considering a writer friend clued me onto an online zombie store and I went nuts shopping for contests for DR’s yet-to-be-contracted release. LOL.

      After Plunder, I’ll wrap up the zombies, though, and then? I’d planned to do the sequel to either ITR or Collared, but the puzzle pieces of IO’s sequel have snapped into place in my head too. So…it’ll be another sequel. Just not sure which. It’d sure be nice to watch Zachary come into his own as a dom and Brian trusting him more. Plus, where I left the rabbit trail of their story at ITR’s end was just plain mean. 😉

  31. Christina says:

    I just finished In The Red & I very much vote for that sequel! Looooooooved it!!!

  32. Denise says:

    Just recently discovered you. I love your work. M/m bdsm/suspense is my absolute favorite genre, with In the Red being one of the best books I’ve ever read. I adore Brian and Zachary. I eagerly await the sequel and am looking forward to reading more of your work.

  33. Joann says:

    Just finished In the Red. I loved it. Please tell me there will be a sequel. Soon hopefully.

  34. Kari says:

    Right now, my schedule is shaping up to be Plunder releasing next (in August), finish the zombies, then sequel to I Omega and then the sequel to In the Red. Glad you liked Zachary & Brian, guys — that sequel is coming. 😀

  35. Emily says:

    I just read In the Red……….I really fell for Brian and Zachary……….I hope the sequel for in the Red comes out soon………………LOVED the story!

    • Kari says:

      Glad you liked Brian & Zachary, Emily! And so far, my schedule’s still shaking out like I said before: Plunder, zombies, IO2 and then ITR2. 😀

  36. Avalie says:

    Just finished re-reading In the red – and been hunting everywhere to find the sequel. Please, you can’t just leave them hanging like that! Please push up your order of writing.

  37. natalie says:

    I loved IO and C and ITR! Have read them all multiple times, will read any and all sequels, I’m sure multiple times. The one closest to my heart would be IO though! Do you think you could write a little faster Kari? 🙂

    • Kari says:

      LOL, I’ve got another one (Plunder) coming out in a few days, I swear. 😉 There’ll be more newsy bits about it soon…I just spent a week at a writers conference and than invested another week with the most obnoxious con superflu ever. I’m not on my game just recently, but there is more coming. FWIW, IO2 is next. Woot? 😀

  38. Kimberly says:

    I love your stories and I’m very happy to learn that you are following up with more sequels. Now, I just have to resist the urge to stare at your website and scream “Faster! Faster!!” while staring at my tablet. Thank you for putting your stories down in print. 🙂

  39. Aimee says:

    A sequel to IO? CANNOT WAIT. xD I’ve re-read IO so many times, it’s definitely my favorite of all your books. Will it be a continuation of Cal and Gabriel’s story kr a side character like Burke or Jake? Also, was wondering if you plan to ever write a sequel to Collared someday?

  40. Klara says:

    I only want to say thank you for your wonderful books!!!
    I love I, Omega. You have created really interesting and originall world there. Cal and Gabriel are amazing together and I would loved to read more books with characters like them (I hope there will be a sequel from this book!!!).
    Have a nice day! K.

  41. Dawn says:

    Do you have a date for I, Omega 2 or In the Red 2????
    Can’t wait!!!!


  42. Denise says:

    Kari, I must sound like a braty child screaming, “Are we there yet.” But do you have a general time span for when ITR sequel will be published? 6 months, a year, or more from now? Thanks, loved this book.

    • Kari says:

      Hiya, Denise! Sorry, I was down for a month or so with a wicked, wicked series of migraines and it’s taken me a while to get my groove back. BUT I did finish the zombie story and have moved into the shifter story, like I said. Shifter story was supposed to be the sequel to IO, but Burke wasn’t cooperating so it’s not IO2. This is a brain worm that wouldn’t let go, something different. I’ll turn to ITR2 after this is done.

  43. Diane says:

    Hi Kari. I just finished Lovely Wicked and I loved it!!! So hot!!! Need a sequel with a happy ending with Sam!!!! Is it coming soon???

  44. Denise says:

    Just finished Plunder. I loved it even better than the first one, and Spoils of War was absolutely fantastic. Thanks so much for your work. I’ve read Collared, I Omega, Spoils, Plunder, and In the Red. Loved them all; but I will always have a special place for Zachary and Brian. I’d give up chocolate for ITR2 and I LOVE CHOCOLATE! Thanks again; I await your next book eagerly 😉

  45. Sharon says:

    I just read the sneek peek to “I don’t, A Christmas Wish”, and laughed… a lot!

    • Kari says:

      😀 Glad you liked the excerpt! It’s going to slay me to wait until Dec. 1st to release it. I had soooooooooooooo much fun writing Seth & Owen’s story and I’m dying for everyone to laugh along with me so I want to release it now, now, now! 😉

      To add insult to injury in re my fraying patience to run with this, I’m also uploading a holiday short story I wrote a couple years ago, You Melted Me, to Amazon at the same time that I Don’t is going up. (Once YMM is live, if any of y’all want to help me make it free with Amazon’s price-matching function, that’d be awesome.) AND I’m releasing a POD print book, I, Omega and Collected Shorts that should appear on Amazon any day now too, $7.99 whattabargain. 😉

      So yeah, I’ve had all this good stuff cooking and now that all that work is finally soooooooo close to the new release strut…I’m like a yippy cocker spaniel right now, swear to God. LOL!

      • Theresa B. says:

        Well, if u want to release all that nervous energy by finishing the sequel to In The Red, I won’t be mad about it….just saying… 😉

      • Sharon says:

        I recently read “I don’t, a Christmas Wish”, and loved every word of it! It was so much fun to read! Will you ever be revisiting these guys again in the future?? I would love another sneak peek into their lives.

        Now I’m off to read “You Melted Me” 🙂

        • Kari says:

          I think a sequel to I Don’t called I Do! would be wicked funny, but who’s getting married? Seth? Or Eddie? HEE HEE HEE. 😀 But sadly, no, that isn’t active on my docket at the moment. For now, I’m in edits with Half a Million Dead Cannibals and eyeball deep brainstorming another White Knot (same-sex marriage) story that’s…interesting. And more than a tad despicable. LOL. Not quite sure the world’s ready for a story like that, but I’m obsessed.

          Question 6 meant so much to me, I’m just not ready to let it go, I think. Plus, I have a sequel to Dead Cannibals started (Dead Reckoning) that, if I have any soul at all, I should finish within this decade so y’all aren’t waiting twenty years after Dead Cannibals releases.

          Hope you like You Melted Me — which is free on The Mighty Zon now, YAY!

  46. Colette says:

    March with me people!!!
    IO2, IO2, IO2, IO2

  47. lois borg says:

    I would also love sequels to What Rough Beast

  48. Dawn says:

    Hey, Kari! Now that the zombies are done…what’s next???

  49. RMG says:

    Really enjoyed ‘Dead Cannibals’. I truly hope you’ll have mercy on us and have ‘Dead Reckoning’ out sometime this century! 😉 Would love to see more of Riley and Graham.

    • Kari says:

      Glad you liked Dead Cannibals!

      You see Riley and Graham in Dead Reckoning, but 2 other heroes take center stage. I’ve got quite a bit of that story done already. I’d have to check to see which project is supposed to be worked on when, but I’m pretty sure DR is up after the pornocats. Honestly, I’ve done too much work in DR not to finish it & fairly soon too. Plus…It starts with hero2 hanging hero1 from the rafters of a barn to check him for bites. OMFG, how can I NOT finish a story like that??? So yeah. It’ll be coming before the end of the decade for sure. 😉

      • RMG says:

        Wow, now I’m totally excited for the next part! Would’ve loved to have seen more of Riley and Graham, but I’m loving the direction you’re taking DR in. I’ll pray to the Muse Gods for you to be able to finish it soon!! 🙂

        • Kari says:

          I love Riley and Graham too much to wreck their relationship for a sequel. I wanted all new guys to wreck. 😉 I’m working on the pornocats and a smaller project besides right now. Once those are turned in…? Shouldn’t take much to finish DR, but I have the attention span of a neurotic cocker spaniel.

  50. Amanda says:

    I finished ITR and Collared a few weeks ago and have been stalking the interwebz looking for some updates. While I REALLY need to find out what happens in ITR (cause you’re just so cruel like that lol), I’m absolutely dyinggggg for a sequel to Collared. Any updates on either of these? Love your work!

  51. KristiP says:

    I’m really looking forward to pornocats!

    • Kari says:

      I had so much fun writing this one…Can’t wait for the release myself. LOL. Hope everyone likes it. 😀

  52. Dawn says:

    Hey, Kari!
    Just finished reading the porncats—cute! You always come up with a twist in your story—I loved that they actually lived in the trees and considered the ground dangerous!
    So…what’s next???

    • Kari says:

      Glad you liked the pornocats! 😀

      I can’t make any announcements yet, but a revised Spoils of War will likely come next. The first edition was good, don’t get me wrong. I was pleased with it, but I’m a stronger writer now. That story never got the edit it deserved, so I looked at the contract termination as an opportunity to smooth out the rough edges & make Spoils the book it could’ve and should’ve been. No drastic changes to the story, mind. Just a more elegant ride. Oh, wait. I also added an epilogue. I suppose that’s a drastic change, but if fans of the story can’t stand the idea of a more pronounced HEA, they can just skip that part. 😉

      Otherwise, I’m working on a shifter novel. Not the same world as IO. I’ve never seen anything like it, really. This is very, very different.

  53. Christina Marie says:

    Just finished IO, absolutely loved it! And I’ve got my eyes on Collared, so excited. But I was just reading through the comments here and I was wondering if you were still planning a sequel to IO or if that has been tabled?


    • Kari says:

      I’m working on a shifter novel now, but that world is different than IO’s, sorry! 🙁

      • Christina Marie says:

        So funny. I just finished the shifter story you were working on. (I’m assuming you were talking about Pretty Poison). Loved it! So, now my question is, do you have plans to write a sequel to that?

        I’m a hopelessly greedy reader.

        • Kari says:

          Sequel to Pretty Poison? I hadn’t thought about it, honestly. Right now, I’m laser-focused on getting through the Spoils of War reissue in January so I can breathe again. This fall/winter was a tad ambitious for me: Field Guide/pornocats (Sept), Bump in the Night (Oct), Pretty Poison (Dec), and Spoils of War (Jan)…Basically, I have no functioning brain cells left. LOL

  54. Denise says:

    I’ll read your new books too Kari, but ARE you going to write a sequel to In The Red at some point or have you decided not to continue? I love Zach and Brian and would love to know if I’ll ever see them again. No pressure, LOL, just would like to know if there is hope for a sequel or not. Thanks, Denise

    • Kari says:

      No, there will be an ITR2. That isn’t off the table at all. It’s just a victim of my ADD. 🙁

      • Denise says:

        Thanks for responding, Kari. That’s good news! ADD I can deal with. I’ve got it myself, plus a crazy schedule so I understand. I’ll be here whenever you’re ready. Never stop writing. I love your work.

        • Kari says:

          I have serious focus/concentration problems and the impulse control of a 2yo. Eep. I used to stay on top of it with caffeine, which helped, but doesn’t seem to make a dent any more. *sigh*

          Thanks for your patience!!!

  55. Denise says:

    Sure, ADD/ADHD affects adults too. Medication has helped me tremendously. Adderall and Dexadrine were life savers when I was in college. Good luck with everything.

  56. Laurie Ann says:

    Would LOVE a sequel to Collared – pleeaasseeee :}

    Hi, came across Pretty Poison – how the hell did I miss your books before!!! Absolutely love them! Confused though – reading back comments show that you have books not on your list? Lovely Wicked? Pornocats? Spoils of War? Huh? Where do I find these books 🙂 !

    • Kari Gregg says:

      LOL, glad you liked Pretty Poison!

      Lovely Wicked was my 1st published book,an MMF contemporary. I got that back from the original publisher after filing a lawsuit this year. It’s temporarily been pulled from the market in digital format because I want to revise it (I’m a much stronger writer now), but I left the print version up and available if readers absolutely have to have it and can’t wait.

      Spoils of War was my 2nd published book, a MM fantasy novella. I also recovered those rights from the original publisher after filing suit. Both the print and digital versions were pulled from the market while I revised and added a small bit, but it will be releasing with Loose Id on January 14th.

      The pornocats is just what I call An Unauthorized Field Guide to the Hunt. At first, that story didn’t have a title and admittedly, I thought referring to the story as pornocats was funny. By the time I had a title…Pornocats kinda stuck with me. Sometimes, I call it the Field Guide, for short, but most of the time, it’s still the pornocats to me. LOL

      Sorry about the confusion! 🙂

  58. Charlotte says:

    Thanks! Over the last three days I have bought and read all your books but two – have to wait to next week to get those LOL! I really, really enjoy your books and have just started rereading I, Omega again :). Can’t wait for anything new you have!

  59. Seiridis says:

    Omg. Seriously, I have the same problem as many before me had.
    “I, Omega”? “Collared”? Or “In the Red”? I can’t decide. I really can’t. The thing is – I WILL buy each one of them. Kari, you have wonderful writing style that I can sense even though I’m not English. 😮 It’s not often for me, lot of authors writing is… dry. I mean – yes, their characters are good, deep and stuff, but you… You top all of them. I hope I’ll be able to read those sequels as soon as posible. 😀

    Greets and lots of inspiration and perseverance. 🙂

  60. kira says:

    OMG i need a sequel to In The Red!! you have me hanging on the edge of my seat!

  61. Dawn says:

    Kari—I’m just curious—-what’s next???

  62. Dawn says:

    I can be patient—your books are worth the wait!!!

  63. Michelle D. says:

    Ms. Gregg,

    Any word on the sequel to In The Red ? I absolutely adore Zachary and Brian and can’t
    wait to see how you add Jason to the mix! Your loyal fans really miss them.
    Thanks, Michelle

  64. Myrna Hernandez says:

    I had Pretty Poison on my recommends list from Amazon since day one. I ignored it because frankly the wolf on the cover was a little evil looking! Lol, anyway, i have to say it was a big mistake on my part! I loved your story, the mian characters, the side stories, and would love to read more about these characters!

    Very entertaining and emotionally stimulating!

    • Kari Gregg says:

      I’m glad you liked it! I’m back in shifters, but not PP’s story world and I’ve a feeling the project after this will be a contemp (and super pervy, lol). I honestly have no idea if I’ll make it back to that shifter world. Not soon, though, sorry. 🙁

  65. Dawn says:

    Just curious about a release date for you next book. Not trying to push—-just wanting something to look forward to!!!

    • Kari says:

      I honestly don’t know. I’ve almost always been a fall/winter release-palooza kinda chick, LOL. (Most of my releases run August-January.) Riptide, I think, is talking January for that project. I’ve got another in Sept/Oct, but I may have something before then. I just can’t make any announcements yet. Sorry! 🙁

  66. Denise says:

    Hi Kari, hope all is well. Just wanted to say that since 2012, I have loved Zachary and Brian…Please, please , please don’t abandon them. In the Red was my all time favorite. It had everything I love to read: a little BDSM, PTSD, m/m, romance, mystery, action, torture…This book simply screams for a sequel. I will continue to wait and have hope you will return to it when the time is right. Thank you so much for all you write.

    • Michelle says:


      I am with you. Zachary and Brian are amazing characters and I can’t wait to see where they go next.
      Come on fellow fans and chant with us “Zachary and Brian, Zachary and Brian”
      Pretty please with sugar on top?


  67. Dawn says:

    I know To Tame a Wild Human is coming out Monday…but I’m greedy! Do you have anything else heading our way this year?

    • Kari Gregg says:

      Hiya, Dawn! And holy crud, do I ever need to update this page, LOL. Yes, Tame is releasing January 19th. After that…I really don’t know. I’m working on a high fantasy novel plus, For Whom the Heart Stone Burns, which has a tab on this site if you look up toward the top page banner. I’m uploading freebie chapters of Act I of Heart Stone on holidays, Christmas 2014 through Beltane (May 1st) 2015 (2 chapters are live as of right now) and I’ll package up the whole lot at some point, but not sure when. I’ve got other projects in progress too, but no details as yet, sorry. 🙁

  68. Aimee says:

    Hi! Will Tame a Wild Human be available on Amazon as well?

  69. Dawn says:

    Just finished Tame a Wild Human. Awesome!!!
    Just wish you could write faster so I don’t have to reread your books so much!!!! Keep writing!!!

  70. Michelle says:

    Hi! I just finished In the Red and immediately tried to find the sequel. So disappointed there wasn’t one yet. :-). Any idea when we might see the sequel? I am also wondering if there will be a sequel to Spoils of War. Such awesome books!!

    • Kari says:

      Sorry, didn’t see this until now! There is, actually, a sequel to Spoils of War out, called Plunder. As for the ITR sequel…Honestly, it wasn’t active on my docket for 2015 and that game plan even has gotten all jacked up because I’ve been ill. Heart Stone is still on schedule, for instance. A bit ahead of schedule, actually. But with being sick, I haven’t started the IO prequel yet. Hopefully this fall, after all the acts of Heart Stone are out. GAH.

  71. Denise Almodovar says:

    Kari, congrats on your new book. I am sorry to hear you have been ill. I must admit however that since 2012, I’ve been waiting for In The Red sequel and am disappointed there is still no sequel planned. If at all possible please make this the next sequel on your agenda, at least for 2016. Several readers have also requested this sequel. I’m so eager to read Brian and Zachary’s story. Thank you.

  72. Jodie says:

    Just read Lovely wicked, great book!!!!! Is there a sequel in the works?

  73. Paula says:

    I’d really, really, really like a sequel to Collared. I’ve read it three times already! I just love it. But then, I also love “I, Omega”, “An Unauthorized guide to field hunt”, “Into the red”. They are all amazing stories. Though I hope there would be a second part of Collared. (crossed fingers!)

  74. Kari says:

    Sorry, guys! I’m working on the 2nd act of For Whom the Heart Stone Burns right now. After Heart Stone’s done… I really have no idea, LOL. 2015 is very much by the seat of my pants and dependent on what’s going on IRL. I had a plan, I always have a plan. It’s just going to take me a little more time to work my way back to it.

    • Laura says:

      Any estimated release date for 2nd act of Heart Stone Burns?


      • Kari says:

        Not yet, unfortunately. Chemo made me slow down and chemo brain put me on temporary hiatus until the fog in my noggin cleared, LOL. Then, I had to take time off for surgery. 3 weeks post-op, I hope to get back to work today, though. I’m expecting to be slow again because honestly everything still hurts. A lot. But not being able to work has been making me nuts. I’d like to be able to say I’ll have this out on X date, but…I’m just not sure how quickly I’ll be able to get back to my normal pace. 🙁 I’ll be sure to yell, though, you can be sure of that. If it helps at all, I’ve been working on 2 books at once so if I balance things out right, you’ll probably be getting 2 books from me very close together, Act 2 plus a new shifter story. (I truly can’t help myself. LOL)

  75. KristiP says:

    I hope your recovery goes well. Sending lots of healing thoughts and prayers your way!

    • Kari says:

      Thanks! I start radiation next week and am totally bleh about it. Every day…for weeks Egads. Although I’m kinda giddy today. Just realized I haven’t seen a single doctor or had one solitary appointment this week. Over the past 8 or 9 months, you can count my weeks off on the fingers of one hand so…woo hoo? LOL

  76. Dawn says:

    Just wanted to wish you a happy new year! I hope that this one goes much better for you and all of your loved ones!

    • Kari says:

      Thank you!!! I’ve had 2 entire weeks now without seeing a single doctor and now feel like a total diva, LOL Wishing you a very happy and healthy 2016 as well! 😀

  77. Devony says:

    I hope you are healthy😊
    My friend just went through breast cancer hell last year(thankfully she is doing well) & it scared the crap outta me😕
    ….so sending you healthy,happy thoughts/prayers.

    So happy to see new story from you…loved your new take on the shifter world😍
    Any word on when you will have more of Heartstone out?

    No pressure! lol Seriously I love your work & have no problem waiting👍🏽 I am just glad you share your stories with us.

    • Kari says:

      Breast cancer is a scary, scary business and the treatment/surgery/rad is just this long, horrific slog. But you get through it. Funnily enough, A few years before my diagnosis, an old friend from my school days was diagnosed and that pushed me to be more vigilant myself. I owe that woman my life. For serious.

      Anyhoo, I’m making a month my goal for New Beginnings rolling out. To be totally honest, the project could get hung up in production (major edits required or schedules not lining up, etc), but a month is what I’m shooting for. 🙂

      I’m just glad to still be here TO share stories. LOL \o/

  78. Devony says:

    Hells yeah!😎

    Alrighty then I shall just have to re-read all of your other books that I have until then. Poor me.😉
    ….tho I will admit I haven’t yet attempted to re-read your bump in the night tentacle story yet. It freaked me out big time! 👀 lol

  79. Lisa McGrath says:

    Wishing you all the best. My mother and sister had cancer. Mother breast cancer (iin remission 4 yrs now) my baby sister in remission 2 months for ovation. From what I am told a fighting spirit and a passion for life is what’s called for…and you sound like you have both!

    Now if I can only get them passionate about lgbt books…lol

    Love…LOVEDDDD Collared and am waiting oh so patiently… (not)…for the sequel. So get your naughty passion on women!! 😉

    No worries…your book lovers will be waiting when you are ready

    • Kari says:

      An upbeat, positive attitude will take you far, that’s for sure. And even if it doesn’t, at least you’ll enjoy the trip, right? LOL

      Thank you! 😀

  80. Jenna says:

    Glad you are doing better!!! I have been patiently waiting for more, but you getting better is most important!!! I think I have read all of your books at least 5 times and can’t wait for more!!

  81. Devony says:

    You nailed it in spade😎👍🏽
    I wanted to find a HEA for it, but I am pretty sure the chemically induced bliss at the end doesn’t quite make it! lol

  82. Laura says:


    I just finished reading In The Red for the third time. Please, please, pretty please with a cherry on top would you write a sequel. I’m dying to know what happens.

  83. Devony says:

    A really late Happy New Year! 🙃

    I hope the new year is treating you well so far*Hugs*

    Just finished One Last Try & am processing it. I enjoyed the story overall, just twisting on MC relationship with his Psycho brother. You did the juxtaposition of loving/hating & the whole idea of forgiving well….I mean how does one really get around that? There is no logical reason for what happened. For me I am stuck on the why of it & there would be no reason good enough to explain(if that makes any sense?saying bro is crazy isn’t closure enough😝lolWHY?!) I just feel so much for Nox & what he experienced. How do you reconcile it all?! The fact that some part of Joth feels emotional(ironic!)pain over what he is is weird too & almost makes me feel bad for him. His inner world must be all kinds of screwed up…

    Lol one the reasons I love your books so is that you create situations that make me think even after the story is done. So thank you again for a great read😊

    Any word on when the rest of For Whom the Heart Stone Burns will be out?

    • Kari says:

      Hi, Devony! I’m so glad you liked One Last Try! What started me down the path to what eventually became this story was marathoning Discovery ID while I was sick. One of those shows stuck, just wouldn’t let me go, the case of a young boy who murdered a little girl. One of the many things that struck me…They did a prison interview update with that boy, now as an adult. He was so…broken. Wrong. Why did he do it? He didn’t know, not really, and I don’t think we (as a society) ever will either. The thing is, during that interview, that boy (now a young man) was distraught. In pain. It wasn’t remorse exactly, at least not as we understand it, but I do believe the pain he was feeling was genuine. It haunted me. Like I said, it stuck. I kept thinking on it, my mind returning to it, and I eventually, I processed it by writing One Last Try.

      Anyhoo, I’m not sure if finishing Heart Stone will come up next or a dragon idea I’ve been knocking around. But if it’s not next, soon. 🙂

      • Devony says:

        Hmmm awesome! More is always appreciated…the order is less important😉

        Now I have to go look for that show because it bugs me I can’t make any sense of tragedies like that. Heh….head meet wall!

  84. Dawn says:

    Just wondering what you are working on for us now!

    Hope all is going good for you this summer!

    • Kari says:

      Hiya, Dawn! I hope you’re in the mood for more shifters. I wasn’t going to do shifters again, but the idea just sort of landed in my head, couldn’t resist. Royalty hiding in exile among humans after narrowly escaping execution as a child during revolution & civil war. Working title is The Last Emperor. 🙂

  85. Dawn Adams says:

    Just checking in with you to see when we get the next book. I have down time over the holidays…hint hint!!!!

    Hope all is going well for you!!!!

    • Kari says:

      Hi, Dawn!

      I’m doing fantastic and thank you for asking. A minor scare with tests monitoring me turned out to be nothing recently so when I say I’m good, I have real-time & solid medical proof. LOL

      Alas, still too early for The Last Emperor. I have someone working on the cover, though, and I’m in the home stretch! Still planning to get this novel out by year’s end or thereabouts. Shifters, lost royalty, mating heats, arranged marriage, and an alpha/alpha pairing, oh my. 😀 I’m working on a second shifter novel (Two Fates) in tandem with The Last Emperor that I hope to finish a month or so after The Last Emperor goes so…two! I’ll have two! Not novellas either. NOVELS. \o/

      Moar smut is coming, I promise, and in the meantime, I hope you Thanksgiving is full of laughter and love. 🙂
