Heath was never my brother.
Nor my step brother, or any other relation our family tried to impose on us.
He was always just Heath, and at the end he was my Heath.
Ten years ago he disappeared, and within three years of his absence he’d taken over Hollywood.
The world my father built.
The world he wasn’t good enough for.
The world he’d been denied when he was told he couldn’t have me.
Now he’s back, and he only wants one thing…to take it all.
Hollywood King is Wuthering Heights crashed into the glitz and glam of Hollywood Royalty. A stand alone book with the happily ever after you always wanted for Cathy and Heathcliff.
Amara’s move home is anything but fun: with her mom recovering from a cancer diagnosis, her only goal is to find a job in her field and support her family. But once she lays eyes on Travis Holt, she realizes her time in LA might be a lot more tolerable if she could use him to take her mind off things.
For Travis, there’s only ever been one rule: stay away from his best friend’s sister. And it wasn’t a problem until Amara moved back west all grown-up and sexier than sin. When she comes strutting around his gym every day, it’s impossible to keep his eyes—and hands—off her.
The one-off fling Amara imagined isn’t possible with a God like Holt. And once Eddie finds out, they’re suddenly cast into the turbulent waters of Something More, the unfamiliar terrain where Amara has to confront whether she can truly support someone whose career is the antithesis of everything she’s worked for in the non-profit world.

The elevator doors opened at the top floor, and he moved but froze before his foot left the elevator. His towel. Downstairs, slung over the back of the chair in his bedroom. Fuck. He needed it, and he should go back for it.
But Amara was there. Alone. Naked, probably. And just as gorgeous as ever.
Maybe he should abandon the towel. Pretend like he didn’t care, didn’t need it.
He pushed the elevator’s Down button. Definitely needed the towel.
As the elevator descended, he gnawed the inside of his lip. She was probably changed by now. How long did it take someone to get into a bathing suit? Seconds, these days. Besides, what did he care about Amara’s naked body?
Nope, that didn’t help things. Guilt roiled around inside him. He couldn’t have these feelings for Eddie’s sister, even if they were strictly physical. He needed to act like—and believe—she was no different than any other girl.
The doors slid open, and he hurried toward his door, fumbling with his key in the lock. It opened with a quiet whoosh, and he stumbled toward his bedroom.
He rapped his knuckles against it. “Hey, you in there?” Turning the knob, he pushed on the door. No response.
Pushing farther, he let the door swing open a little. He peered inside, eyes adjusting to the low lighting of the bedroom.
Amara’s full, naked backside greeted him, all curves and roundness, gorgeous lines and sweet caramel. His jaw dropped.
She looked over her shoulder at him, the fuck-me eyes back out to play.
He pulled the door shut, heart pounding. Leaning his forehead against the door frame, he gripped the door handle so hard, his arm shook. Don’t go in there, don’t go in there, don’t you fucking dare go in there.
“Sorry, Amara.” He struggled to make his voice clear. “I thought you were done. Forgot my towel.”
“It’s okay.” Her voice came out muffled through the door. “Like you haven’t seen a naked body before.”
He drew a low, shaky breath. True, he had seen plenty of naked bodies before. None that he’d wanted to ravage as much as hers in recent times, though.
The handle turned, and the door swung open. He didn’t move—couldn’t move—from where he leaned. The glimpse of her nakedness had stolen his strength. He was useless now. Amara looked at him, grinning mischievously.
“I’m almost ready.” She gathered her hair to one side, looking him up and down.
Heart still pounding, his gaze careened over the soft arc of her hip as it transitioned from thigh to waist. He knew what she was hinting at. He could taste it like a shark near blood. He’d eat her up—all of her. From head to toe. He gulped.
But she’s off-limits. “That’s a pretty fancy bathing suit.” He sauntered past her, struggling to keep his eyes off her as he walked past.
“Don’t you like it?” She stuck out a hip.
He allowed himself to look her up and down again. It was a one-piece with most of the center cut out. It had only a strip of fabric connecting the breastbone to the pelvic area, which meant it highlighted unnaturally the hourglass curve of her body.
“It’s nice.” He meant to continue to the chair where his towel lay draped, but his feet wouldn’t take him away from her. He gritted his teeth, unable to keep the beast of desire at bay any longer.
“Oh, that’s your only opinion? Just ‘nice’?” She lifted a brow.
“You look sexy as fuck, Amara.” His voice came out low. She grinned, pulling her hair into a small bun. He reached for her hand, stilling her. “Leave your hair down.”
She did as he said, blinking up at him with a sexy type of honesty, as if she waited for him to lead the way.
He dragged his fingers down the side of her arm. “Be careful with this.” His hand smoothed over the curve of her exposed hip, and her breath hitched. He cinched her body to his, vision going spotty for the briefest of seconds. “It’s powerful.”
She laughed a little, but it faded fast. She danced her fingertips up the sides of his arms, making his cock twitch.
“So are these.” She trailed her hands over the arcs of his biceps, the heat of her breath against his chin. He brought both arms around her, making his muscles bulge; she fit like a puzzle piece.
He hovered his lips over her forehead, desperate for contact but liking the prickling tension of withholding just a little bit longer. He pushed his hands over her hips.
“Can I test out the suit?”
She nodded. “We better make sure it passes muster.”
He drew a ragged breath as he palmed the taut melons of her ass cheeks. He pressed her into him, rocking his hips in a lazy circle. She had to feel his cock by now.
“Pretty nice.” His voice came out almost a growl, and he dipped his head to nuzzle the sweet hollow of her neck. She inhaled sharply, just as he sensed the front door opening.
He stilled. The front door opened and then shut. He swore and dropped his hands. She cleared her throat, stepping away from him, reaching for the pile of clothes discarded on the bed.
“Holt, where you at?” It was Lex. “Dude, we need the ice.”
Travis rubbed his face, trying to efface the lingering memory of Amara’s perfect ass cheeks singeing his palms. “I’m coming.”
Amara arched a brow.
Travis opened his mouth to say something, but had no idea what. Sorry, you’re too fucking hot? He headed out into the kitchen, where Lex pulled a bag of ice out of the freezer.
“Starting with Jack,” he said, as though this explained everything. He followed Lex out of the apartment, Amara’s scent still whispering through him.
They boarded the elevator, and the spell broke. This was turning out to be the delicious nightmare he’d envisioned—denying the simple urges he felt for Amara while in front of her overprotective brother, almost overruled by carnal desires at every turn.
She was too hot. And she felt too damn good in his arms.
This was a lot of trouble already.

A couple weekends ago I was lucky enough to spend some time at Bubonicon, which is a fantasy and sci-fi based literary convention held every year in my hometown of Albuquerque. Now I had to work most of the weekend and didn't get to attend as many panels and talks as I would have liked, but it still did this author's heart good to be around so many authors and readers. I will be writing about some of the things that got me thinking from the con this coming week. I also had to opportunity to buy some books from some local authors, more books than I should have, but what can I say? I love books and love supporting local authors. I am thinking that if I have more fantasy and sci-fi books out next year that I really need to get a table and see how things go there. Anyways, here is the swag that I managed to pick up. Like I said I do love me some books.
So as many of you already know I have been dabbling in writing some non-romance stories of late. Sure, I am known as being a romance author, of varying heat levels and sub-genres, and I am going to keep writing romance so don't worry. As a matter of a fact I will soon have a Christmas romance off to my publisher and I am working on the sequel to Quest for Redemption and the next Gods Behaving Badly book, so steamy romance is on its way! However I love to write in all sorts of genres and that's why I am going to start using S.L. Velarde for all non-romance releases, just to keep things easy for my readers to know what is romance and what is not. S.L. will be the name on horror, hard fantasy, sci-fi, and mystery books and stories that I have in the works. Sheri will still be the name on anything romance! Pretty easy right? I hope that all of my readers will give both romance and the other genres a chance, but now you will know what you are getting before you pick up my next book!
Today I am happy to share the cover reveal for my upcoming Atlantis story, The Discovery of a Lifetime! It is a mix of romance, sci-fi, and a touch of steampunk. I made the cover myself and must say that I am pretty darn happy with it!
Atlantis is a myth that will not die, it has been told in several forms with each different and interesting in its own right. Why not take romance below the sea into a fantasy world full of wonder and maybe even love?
Karina is the laughing stock of the archaeology world. Despite the naysayers she knows in her heart that she’s right, Atlantis is real and she will find it. With a mysterious backer and state of the art technology, she finds her heart’s desire and then some. Atlantis is not so lost after all, and their prince seems to only have eyes for her.
So I am not only slowly getting my blogging and writing back on schedule, I am also starting to be more interactive on social media again as well. Tomorrow, July 31st, I will be doing a little take over on the Facebook page Passion and Pentagrams of which I am a part of with some other awesome authors! I'll be popping in and out all day, sharing some stuff, playing some games, maybe even giving away a few books! I hope to see you there!
My Gods Behaving Badly series has been one of my most successful ventures in writing to date. Part of that is probably due to the passion that I have for the subject matter. I love Greek gods and I wanted to see how they would behave in a modern setting where no one believes in them anymore. Boy did we get to see how they behave! However, Looted, the first short in the series was never supposed to be the beginning of a series. It was originally written to be part of an anthology that didn't end up happening. It was then picked up as a stand alone with Secret Cravings Publishing where it became a hit and I wrote three more books in the series while there. When SCP closed, well I decided to keep my Gods Behaving Badly going on my own. I re-released all the previous books and have added a couple more to the series. I have not had a release in the series in over a year now due to life and other obligations, but I think that it is time to see what the gods are up to once more.
Want to start the Gods Behaving Badly journey from the beginning? Looted is only .99 cents and free on Kindle Unlimited!

Danger and secrecy is the name of the game, and it hits close to home. Kelsey falls victim to an experiment gone wrong, and accepting her fate may be impossible. Something Tucker may never forgive himself for…
