New Release - Snowy Carolina



All song-writer Palin James wanted was to return to Piedmont, North Carolina, a place where she always felt safe. She planned to raise her future kids away from the hustle and bustle of city life. But her dreams could be shattered if construction owner Sean Nichols got his hands on her uncle's land.

Sean Nichols always dreamed of opening a winter resort on a patch of land owned by his deceased neighbor. He'd always thought his younger brother Pete shared his dream until Pete fell in love with the land's new owner. Was blood thicker than water? Or was love more powerful?

Friday Night Frights

Friday Night Frights


Imari Jade

What the hell is wrong with the Internet and my Yahoo? I don’t know what’s going on by my virus protector is about to run. I don’t think it’s the computer, I think some stupid person could be hacking Explorer this time.

Anyway, I got caught in the rain at break time this morning. Four of us were outside on break when it started to rain. Three of us ran inside, and one stayed out. The three of us got soaking wet trying to get back to the office before our breaks ended, while the other one waited for the rain to end, not carrying if she was late or not. How come good people get punished for following rules? So I run into the first floor bathroom for some paper towels to dry off with and I notice that I have to matching wet spots on my blouse at the nipple point. One of the ladies laughed and told me it looks like milk leaking. I didn’t think that was funny. So I had to use my hands to cover up the wet spots until I got into my office and put on my sweater. I dried about an hour later.

I got on the bus this afternoon and sat in the first available seat I could find. I put my MP3 buds into my ears, pulled out my Pandigital Reader and pushed the button to turn it on. A man sat down next to me and kept bumping me with his arm. Okay, you’re bigger than me but I paid for this seat so stay on your own side, I thought. Then he turns around and asks me about my reader. Duh? I have ear buds in my ear. I can’t hear you. I pull one of them out. Bad move. He starts a conversation. First of all, he smells like beer. Then he asks me if I work at Taco Bell. I’m dressed in blue dress pants and a blue shirt with blue roses around the collar. The last time I checked Taco Bell workers wore uniforms. Then he starts telling me about this business he has opened, but his daughter is running it. It has something to do with tools, and they’ve decided to split the business 60/40. Then an eighteen wheeler passes on the left side of the bus and he tells me that his grandson wants one and he promised to buy him one. Okay, I’m not the brightest bulb in the world when it comes to some things, but my instincts tell me that he lives in a fantasy world better than any I can create, and I know he does not one, own a tool shop, or two, can afford to buy his grandson an eighteen wheeler.

I have my hand on the reader button the entire while he’s talking. Then he tells me that he’s never seen me on the bus before. I’ve been riding that bus for years, and I have seen him before. The only problem is that I’m usually sitting somewhere on the other side and toward the back reading or writing, but all those seats were taken. Why do people want to tell me their life story? He goes on to say that his wife gets mad at him when he doesn’t come straight home when it’s raining. She accuses him of being with other women…which he denies. You’re trying to hit on me on the bus so you think I’m going to fall for this. He told me that he was going to stop at a bar and get a couple of beers before he goes home, and later he and his family were going out to eat Red Lobster.

He asks me if I have a car.

“No, I don’t like to drive.”

Apparently he doesn’t have a car either so why ask this stupid question if you see me on the bus with you?

Somewhere along the way he asks me if I’m off for the day.

“No, “ I tell him. “My day is just beginning?”

He doesn’t understand or perhaps he thinks I don’t understand his question. “Aren’t you just getting off of work?”

“Yes, but I’m on my way to my second job,” I tell him. I didn’t tell him that my second job is writing.

“You have two jobs?” he asked.

“Yes,” I told him.

“What does your husband think about that?”

“I think he should be damn happy he has a wife whose working?” I told him.

What is wrong with people? I don’t have to ask my husband to allow me to work? One, I don’t have a husband, and when I did have one I didn’t have to ask permission to do anything. The same thing happened to me a couple of months ago when I was shopping in Wal-Mart. An old man asked me why I was spending all my husband’s money on groceries. You see, my basket was running over, as it usually is. I didn’t need to tell him that southern women cook and that their families come to dinner most of the time. It was none of his business but he proceeded to follow me around the store and make comments. Wal-Mart is lucky I didn’t leave the basket and walk out of the store.

Now back to the other story. He finally gets his butt off the bus at the Walkertown terminal. By now I’m pissed because it’s too late to read since I only have about a mile to go (which in bus rider terms that about 15 minus of riding and stopping). And it’s a very good story and I only have a couple more pages left. The writer has one of the leading men in a precarious position and I wanted to find out how it ends. But it had to wait because once I step inside my door I transform into either Maw Maw or Imari, which mean either I’m being bossed around by toddlers or I’m writing.

First of all, please do not entertain me with conversation if you see damn ear buds in my ears and I’m reading. Two. I do not want to talk. Three. I do not want to talk to men reeking of beer. And four, I do not want to date old guys, who don’t have cars, who live in fantasy worlds and who think that I need a man to take care of me.

So I get in and I turn on Twitter. It won’t load. Foxfire won’t load, Explorer is acting stupid, so I decided to get off the Internet and write this blog while I’m waiting for the scheduled virus protector to run.

Now back to the blog title.

I found out today that a book I thought was going to be released on August 1, 2011 was released on July 19, 2011. So here is the new title: Cursed. Publisher: MoonGypsy Press.

Isn’t the book cover gorgeous?

For those of you who don’t know, I don’t only right erotic romance. I also write paranormal and horror. This is the blurb. Yes, the book has sex in it, and vampires and werewolves.

Roxanne Toussant returns to her hometown of Gabriel Corners, Canada to find the whereabouts of the creature that killed her father and best friend when she was a little girl. No one believed her back then but she joined the Royal Canadian Mounties to prove them wrong. Days after she returns women started disappearing, followed by bodies popping up all over the place. Aided by her partner Dominick Bienvenu and the town’s coroner, Alexander Du Monde, Roxanne takes on the town of skeptics while, hobnobs with the town’s elite while slaying all the other monsters that have appeared since she arrived.

Royce Carauld had no idea that beautiful young woman he saw in a restaurant would be the woman of his dreams. But as he falls in love with her he knows that he cannot be completely honest with her because he guards a family secret that he can’t tell her about. All the male members of his family are drawn to her and don’t know why. Royce has ordered them all to stay away from her until he can discover what makes her so different. They all listen except his uncle Simon, who turns out to be a thousand year old vampire who also knows about the monster in the woods.

So what does this mean? I have to stay up tonight to promote it because I think I have another book release tomorrow. Sometimes these things are organized and I know about them way ahead of time, and sometimes they’re not.

Either way I will have three new books in circulation which means I have to get my web mistress to update my gorgeous website. I intended to come into this house and call the cable people to come out, but once again, things never quite work out the way you plan them.

Upcoming Events

Upcoming Events


Imari Jade

Good morning,

I can’t believe July is almost over. I’ve been very busy so I haven’t had much time to socialize. Five days a week I work as a financial analyst and a month ago our office moved into a beautiful new building in Algiers, Louisiana. The only problem is most of the site is still under construction. We had to wade through mud and water a couple of days last week, and the Internet sucks, but on the good side it’s a much lovelier building than what we were in. One of the downsides is that I have no sense of direction and I get lost trying to find my office every day.

I’d like to remind you all about the release of my new book, “Prying Eyes,” debuting Monday, July 18, 2011 at Total Ebound. You can pre-order it right now at:

Prying Eyes


Imari Jade

White sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, and beautiful naked bodies. What more can a voyeur ask for?

Fashion model Michael Richards has always liked and admired his female modeling partner Amelia Wilson from the moment he first laid eyes on her. Amelia is the girl next door with the peaches and cream complexion, the type of woman you wanted to take home to meet your parents and nicest person you ever wanted to meet.

But curious by nature Michael feels that there is something not right with this picture. No one can be this perfect and he is bound and determined to find out what truly makes Amelia tick. So when the chance comes up for the two of them to travel to the Bahamas for a photo shoot Michael quickly volunteers to drive the two of them to Florida to board the airplane, figuring a few days in his company is either enough to bore Amelia to tears or get her to shed a bit of her inhibitions.

Amelia Wilson has a dirty little secret and the last person she wants to find out about it is her partner Michael Richards.

Michael is cultured, refined and drop dead gorgeous with all that blond hair and mesmerizing green eyes. What would he think of her if he knew that she had a thing for watching people making love? Or if he found out that she got turned on by watching dirty movies? Would he be so anxious to fly to a tropical island with her to get to know her better? Or would he toss her out of the car and tell her to get back to New York the best way she can?

Let the Celebration Begin


Imari Jade

I want to start this celebration off by saying Happy Birthday to the love of my life Micky Yoochun. Twenty-five years old today. Boy I am going to hell (growl). But that’s okay. I’ll gladly endure the flames for him or with him, whatever happens first. (Smile). I’ll be celebrating for two days with him since it’s actually just the third of June here in the United States but the 4th in South Korea. Here’s to celebrating it in person with him next year.

Secondly, I’m celebrating finishing the first edits of my upcoming book with MoonGypsy Press, “Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.” You guess it. I’ve written another paranormal and this one is set in New Orleans, the fifth scariest place in the world. It’s got three sexy master vampires, a kick-ass fine vampire slayer, a drop dead gorgeous werewolf and a host of other freaky paranormals. I mean something for everyone.

Lastly and certainly not least, I’m celebrating tomorrow’s release of my second book in the Asian Romance series, “Saranghae, (I Love You)” with Sugar and Spice Press. So get those Kindles, Nooks, Pandigitals and all other readers ready. It’s coming out in a format to please everyone.

I can’t believe that six months have passed since the first book “In Deep Kimchi” was published. It has met with great reviews and has received several five star ratings at I’d like to take this time to thank my fans for receiving, “In Deep Kimchi” so warmly. And to the few that didn’t like the book, well, I still value your opinion. You gave me some great ideas for the second book. Yes, this one has lots of sex, so open up your hearts and wallets and buy the second book.

Now back to the sex thing. Everyone knows that I write erotica and no one was expecting such a sweet book. The only explanation I can give you is that I wanted to write a love story and that’s exactly what “In Deep Kimchi” is. It’s the love story. These are twenty-four year old male characters and she’s a very young looking and acting fifty year old woman. How could I write it any differently? Shaundra is not a slut and most people don’t fall into bed with a person they barely know and from a different country no less. If you don’t know by now I’m a romantic. I love when two people from completely different worlds meet and fall in love with each other, defying obstacles and setbacks. That’s what makes us human and if you sleep with a person just for sex, more power to you. My characters have more substance than that.

So let’s revisit them.

Shaundra Love Morrison is a fifty year old African American writer. Her husband is dead, her kids are grown and she’s the grandmother of two young boys. Shaundra works for a publisher named Harper Kehoe. He’s a forty year old divorced white man who is in love with Shaundra and asks her to accompany him to Japan to help open a new publishing company in a partnership he’s formed with Mr. Niigata, an entertainment mogul. Shaundra wants to help Harper out but she’s afraid to fly. Then she sees a picture of four long haired Asian pop singers that Mr. Niigata manages and something awakens in Shaundra. She agrees to the trip and accompanies Harper and three other zany writers to Japan with the aid of the drug Valium to help her endure the long trip.

Shaundra survives the trip but is nearly run over in the hotel lobby by a group of young people as soon as she arrives. She is caught by a young man with a beautiful face and long dark hair. Shaundra doesn’t think anything of it at first and then realizes later on in a hotel bar that he is the lead singer of the group Aomori represented by Mr. Niigata. His name is Yori Morika, an arrogant, no sense of humor young man who asks her to dance through one of the other singers, the piano man, Satoshi Hayashi. Shaundra turns Yori down at first because she finds him rude and obnoxious but later discovers that he’s also downright sexy. The next day she is formally introduced to the rest of the group, Ichiro Yoshida and Takumijo Yamazaki, along with four Japanese writers who are also helping Mr. Niigata with his new publishing company.

Through the story Shaundra meets a lot of people, gets blasted on YouTube having fun with the young guys and drive her grown children crazy with what they perceive as uncharacteristic behavior from their mother. They, like some fans I’ve heard from think Shaundra, at fifty should be home helping raise the grandchildren. Wrong. Shaundra devoted her life to raising her kids, working and now she’s finally given a chance to kick back and have some fun. And it’s not her fault that men are starting to come out of the woodworks. One fan didn’t think that all these men can be attractive to this one woman. Why the heck not? Go back and read the book. They do not fall in love with her because she’s a sex kitten, they like her because she honest about her feelings and her sexuality and she’s nothing like anyone they’ve ever met. Typical, no, possible, yes. True, heck yes. Fifty percent of this book is fiction, the other fifty is true. I’ll just leave up to you to guess which part of it is true. Throughout the story Shaundra is posed with the question what would she do if one of these young men actually fell in love with her. You have to read the end of the book to find out. I surprised everyone including my kids with the ending. Sometimes one has to live for themselves and screw everything else.

Now let me tell you about Saranghae (I Love You), it picks up where In Deep Kimchi left off. Shaundra is still involved with Aomori, but I’ve introduced a couple of new characters, Cristal Gentry, Aomori’s new publicist, and Yi-jun Lee a handsome Korean actor and Satoshi’s best friend. The guys of Aomori are still as crazy as ever and are getting crazier. I tried to give them some redeeming qualities but failed horribly. They are what they are, hot Asian guys with gorgeous bodies and faces. And surprisingly enough Cristal and Yi-jun fits right in with the craziness. Its set not only in Osaka, but I’ve dropped them in China, Korea and Paris, France.

I really feel good about this book and book three in the series is nearly finished. It started talking to me before I finished book two. I’m a little nervous hoping that “Saranghae” lives up to and surpasses “In Deep Kimchi”. So please write a review if you like it.

Here’s to the good times. Saranghae everyone. I Love You, Micky.
