He made her secret fantasies come true…

Christine has always been in love with her best friend’s older brother, Jake. The fact that she’s maid of honor and he’s best man at Jess’s Caribbean wedding means that they’ll be thrown together repeatedly for the week of the festivities. Christine takes a chance and tells Jake about her secret and naughty fantasy, hoping he’ll take the challenge of fulfilling her dreams. Jake has always wanted Christine to be more than his ‘other baby sister’ but doesn’t want to lose her friendship. He can’t believe his luck when she admits her sexy dream—and nothing will stand in the way of him making it come true.

THANK YOU to everyone who grabbed a copy of this book, the beginning of Joanna’s romantic and sensual adventures at the Plume! The Plume: The First Anthology will be free until the end of the month.

The Plume: The Second Anthology by Ella Ardent  The Plume: The Third Anthology by Ella Ardent  The Plume: The Complete Series by Ella Ardent

The second and third anthologies are discounted through the end of the month, and so is the Complete Plume. You’ll find all the links on the page for the Plume anthologies.


It was time to freshen things up around the blog, and you may have noticed some changes. The big one is that instead of an entire series being listed on one page, each story now has its own page. I like how this looks and hope you do, too. All the links have been updated as well.

Also, there’s a new tab called Euphoria. (Hmm. What could that be?)

More about that new series in January…I’ll have some beautiful new covers to show you, too.

2016 is going to rock!


I hope you’ve all had a good summer. I’ve spent most of mine being stuck.

Hunted by Ella Ardent

I wrote the majority of Hunted back in June, Everything was rolling along so well, then BAM, I was stuck. I had no idea how to resolve the story. None. I was sure the answer would come to me eventually, and it did, although it took a lot longer than I’d hope. The thing with being stuck is that there’s no telling when you’ll be unstuck, so I couldn’t give you much of an update.

Until now. I am unstuck.

I have a couple more scenes to write to wrap everything up, then it goes to my editor. I won’t put this one up for pre-order since it’s late. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s uploaded. Thanks for your patience. I really like this story now, although there were moments this summer when I wished Shara hadn’t bought herself this particular birthday present. 🙂

And I’m Back!

Two bits of good news for you today. Not only have I crawled back to the land of the living, but Joanna told me what was wrong with SWITCH. She’s brilliant, but her idea means rewriting or revising everything about her and Mike in the novella.

I’m hoping for publication this Thursday. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, I’ve uploaded everything directly to KOBO. It was so easy that I could even do it when I was sick.

Here’s hoping none of you have caught this virus.


I “met” someone from KOBO online this past week, and have learned something wonderful. It seems that I can publish directly to KOBO without having ISBN#’s. I thought otherwise. So, I’ll be setting that up and publishing everything directly to KOBO in the next week or two. That will mean that new titles will be available there sooner, which is very exciting. I like Smashwords, but sometimes the feed to other portals is really really slow.

I would have to have ISBN#’s to go directly to Apple (and I hear that it’s harder to do) so you Apple people will have to continue to be patient. I’ll keep listening, and maybe will learn something that will enable that to change this year, too.

Edited to add – I’m going to modify this plan slightly. I’ll finish SWITCH first, publish it directly to KOBO and everywhere else, THEN go back and move the other titles to feed directly to KOBO.


I’ve been having a wonderfully productive month, so thought I’d give you all a little update.


I’m just about finished FOREVER BOUND – that’s #3 in the Wedding anthology – and am hoping to publish it this upcoming weekend. I’ll tell you when it’s been uploaded, as usual, and post the links when they go live.

There will be a Wedding anthology, but I’ll have to format the files (for print and digital) plus get a new cover done. With the holidays coming, that anthology might not be available until the new year.

And yes, then I’ll head back to the Plume for SWITCH. 🙂
