Those of you who follow me on Facebook know I’ve been hinting at an announcement for quite some time. The truth is, I have a lot of different irons in the fire right now and hope to have a couple announcements for you in the coming weeks.
But here’s my big one for today;
Acclaimed young adult author Michelle Zink’s debut adult steamy paranormal romance novella, TEMPTATION’S HEAT, the first in a 3-book series featuring members of The Shadowguard, an elite group of assassins whose passion for forbidden entanglements may bring more than one of them to their knees to Georgia McBride at Swoon Romance by Steven Malk of Writers House for publication in Fall 2012 (World English).
There will be AT LEAST three Shadowguard novellas (the third will be out in January) starting with TEMPTATION’S HEAT and TEMPTATION’S KISS. It has been so much fun to play in this new creative space, and I’m excited to share more about my decision to expand my writing repertoire in the coming days.
For now, I just want to share the good news! The most exciting part? These first two novellas will be out on TUESDAY.
That’s right. THIS TUESDAY, December 4th.
Keep an eye on my Facebook page, Twitter, and this blog for more information plus awesome contests and giveaways. In the meantime, let’s kick off my announcement in style, because you KNOW how I like to give stuff away!
Winning this one is easy; just comment on the covers (here on the blog) thru Tuesday, December 4th, and be entered to win both novellas plus two more from Swoon Romance, Unwrap Me by Samantha Spencer and Carolina Jordan, and Captivated by You by Diane Alberts. Three winners will be chosen at random.
Super excited to share this with you guys!

Those covers are pretty steamy! I’m excited to read these, it will be quite a change from the Prophecy series!
Right? I think you’ll still “hear” my voice in there, though. There’s just more sexytimes!
Those two covers are sexy hot! I can’t wait to read them.
I couldn’t agree more. And I’m finding I kind of like sexy hot!
Those covers are awesome! It defiantly draws the reader in, and makes us wonder what kind of steamy adventures we might uncover. These covers are tastefully done and not to cheesy like some romance novels out there, which is great because the cheesy covers just make you want to laugh and your covers actually make me want to read the books. Though I am curious about one bit, it says “adult steamy paranormal romance” yet I don’t see anything truly paranormal on the covers…this makes me wonder if you did this to intrigue us about the paranormal part. I look forward to reading these books eventually!
Thank you so much, Andrea!
One word says it all: YUMMY!!!!
Oh my yes!!!!
Those covers are spicy! I’m not usually a fan of this genre, but I’m sure, by you, it’ll be the best!
Aw, thank you, Rhia! It was fun to write something different. Variety is the spice of life and all that!
The covers are good, I get that the covers have to be gorgeous sexy people however wouldn’t it be nice just for a change to see still gorgeous but more relatable people? If bit make the next guy red headed yay, can’t wait for Tuesday x
My female main character in the third novella is a redhead, Lindsey!
Brilliant cannot wait to read them, I loved your prophecy books and already know you’re an amazing author congrats on the new genre exploring its going to be awesome x
Thank you so much, Lindsey!
Way Hot!!! In my dreams could I be in a scene like that!!! Can’t wait to read these books!!!!!
Lol! You and me both!
I am definitely intrigued by these covers…
Hellooooooo, assassins! LOVE the synopsis and ooooooooh, those covers!
I love those covers ! Deff going to read these
I hope you enjoy them, Dylan!
Ooh! HelLO hot covers! Congrats!
RIGHT?! Or as my editor said, “Holy boob!”
Wow Michelle! You could sell those on the covers alone, but I know from reading your books that the inside will be just as awesome! Congratulations! I can’t wait to read these.;)
Thank you so much, Heather! I don’t take your faith in me for granted.
I’ll take the smokin hot smexy covers over the new object based ones like 50 Shades, etc. I love looking at a hot man on the cover, (grins). My only issue with some covers is when the models on the cover don’t even come close to resembling the description of the characters given in the novel. It’s a pet peeve.
Congrats on spreading your wings into paranormal romance!
I totally agree. Then I flip back and forth from the book to the cover, like, “Eh… nope!”
Thank you so much. I’m really having fun with it!
Unexpected covers, and mysterious content! It seems so different from the prophecy’s books and temptation of angels, and yet, I guess that’s how to understand “don’t juge a book by its cover” 🙂
They ARE different from Prophecy, Francoise. Most notably because they’re adult romances and therefore quite steamy. I hope you enjoy them!
Oh I know ! I was just refering to the covers! Still, I’m really curious 😉
Curious is good!
AHHHH! *waaaant* The covers are soooo gorgeous and hot and smexxxxy! Congrats on this awesome awesome news, Michelle! <33
Thanks, Jessirae! You and Tiff were some of the first people I thought of when I saw my hot new covers. Cuz I know how you two like your hot boys!
The covers are sexy and awesome. I cannot wait to read these books.
I am stupid excited. STUPID.
I am stupid excited that YOU are stupid excited.
OMG I am so excited!! I had been checking almost every day until I recently had a bit of a family emergency but WOW!!! How did I NOT see these! They are amazing and HOT as heck and I can’t wait to get my hands on them. I am so excited that you are moving into new areas! Talent like yours obviously can not be contained lol I’m not even sure what cover I like better but the guy on Temptations Heat calls to me!! I know this comment was all over the place but you know you just made my night and got me super excited!!
CONGRATS on what I am sure will be a successful venture into a new genre!
I adore you!
Stunning Covers….what a wonderful way to start a new series…congratulations!
Will look forward to reading these..
Thank you, Mara! I can’t wait to hear what you think!

WOOT! So glad you approve!

Wow! I think the covers are hot! Totally draw you in and make you want to pick the books right up! Can’t wait to read them!
Thanks, Angela! I hope you enjoy them!
Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? By the looks of these covers, the verdict is out and I want in! 😉
I think there’s too much skin showing….said NO ONE EVER!! Holy birthday suits batman! Yeah, I’m definitely checking into these books! *walks over and turns on my Nook* Thanks Michelle
Both books are exclusive with Amazon the next couple of months, but they’ll be available for the Nook after that!
