I was born on a Wednesday. It’s always had a special meaning to me. This odd midweek word people have to spell out loud a bit to spell it right. And I just spelled right the wrong way.
It’s been hot for the past couple of days but it’s supposed to break tomorrow. I hope so because dudes, so much heat and mostly the air being still has been the pain in the ass.
Let’s see…. waiting for Ramen Assassin’s audiobook to drop and I’ve been told soon so that’s good news. I’m sure someone will let me know about it going live before I can announce it because honestly, sometimes they sneak that out there and no one tells us until… SURPRISE AUDIOBOOK! But I’m looking forward to seeing what Kale Williams has done with Trey and Kuro.
The Seekrit Project is going into contract with Dreamspinner. It is not a romance but well, I’m very excited to have it entering into edits. I’ll let you guys know more about it as the days go by. Right now, I’m looking at covers and styles to figure out what the look of the book is going to be.
I’m working on a paranormal suspense romance right now. I think I like how it’s turning out but you know… sometimes things go weird. And well that’s not a bad thing.
I’ve also got a couple of side projects also in the beginning stages of planning. Once something solidfies, I’ll share that as well.
And let’s not forget… HELLION!
The THIRD book in the 415 Ink series, Hellion, will be dropping in September… on Sept 17th to be exact. If you haven’t yet read the series, the first book, Rebel, is on sale at Dreamspinner for $1.99 until the end of the month. (415 Ink Series Page can be found here: https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/415-ink-9858-s)
I’m excited to see Hellion come to print because Ivo is… don’t tell anyone… my favourite. Well, in his own special kitten way. His book came out so differently than I expected but so much fun!
From the moment SFPD Detective Ruan Nicholls meets Ivo Rogers, he knows the tattoo artist is going to bring chaos to his neat, orderly life. A hellion down to the bone, Ivo is someone Ruan not only doesn’t understand, he’s not even sure he needs to. Everything about Ivo is vibrant, brash, cocky, and arrogant, and Ruan wants no part of him.
Or at least that’s the lie he tells himself when he damps down his desire for the social wild child life tosses into his path.
For Ivo Rogers, life revolves around two things—his family and 415 Ink, the tattoo shop he co-owns with his four brothers. His family might be stitched together by their battle scars from growing up in foster care, but their brotherhood is tight—and strong enough to hold Ivo together during the times when he falls apart.
Now Ivo faces a new challenge when he falls for a cop with an old-school mentality on how a man looks and acts. Ruan is the promise of a life Ivo thought he’d never have, but their clashing perspectives threaten any chance of a relationship. Being the family’s hellion makes it easy to be misunderstood, yet Ivo has faith Ruan will not only embrace who he is but love him as well.
Pre-order Hellion at: Dreamspinner Press, Amazon and other online bookstores!

Tristan Pryce is my favourite character
My favorite is usually the one I’ve read most recently. So right now it is Kai Gracen.
It varies between Tristan Pryce – I LOVE the Hellsingers series! – and Rook Stevens – I love Murder and Mayhem, too. Awwww, don’t make me choose! 🙂
Cole & Jae are my favorite then Wolf & Tristan and Rafe and Quinn. Love them all
I love Kai Gracen and the Hellsingers series. Will there be a third Tristan & Wolf Book?
I absolutely love Kai.
One of my favorites is
I love Cole and Jae! I can’t pick one of them since they’re a package deal. 😀
I love Tristan Pryce, Kai Gracen, Rook Stevens, Alex Martin, and Roku MacCormick but my favorite character is Donal Morgan.
I love all of your characters, but if I had to choose my favorite would be Miki.
Hard to decide. I think Kai Gracen is my favourite!
Honestly I don’t think I can pick. I discovered your wonderful words with Cole McGinnis but Miki and the boys are just so amazing. And so far nothing I’ve read has not made me love the people created.
Kane Morgan is still my favorite!
It has to be Cole. You always remember your first.
Quinn Morgan is my favorite…I fell in love with him from the get go. So glad he has Rafe in his life now.
There is NO possible way I could choose one. Jae, Miki, Cole…a dozen others. Guess I should reread everything again. For…research.
Love them all, but Rook wins by just a bit.
Kai gracen is my favorite because he is slightly feral and always falls into doing the right thing.
Miki St. John. I love his fire and ferocity and bone deep vulnerability. Messing with the Morgans is a bad thing, but messing with Miki will really get you hurt, He goes all in when he goes, in love as well as violence. Fabulous.
You’re asking the hard questions for a Monday (yes I know, but we just got back from vacation, so it’s my Monday). It’s like asking which is your favorite kid. Or cat. It’s pretty much a draw between Kane, Cole, Kai and Donal. And Rook. And Quinn. And Jae. And Miki. Dammit. If forced at dragon point, I’ll go with Donal.
There are so many!! Ok, Rook maybe has an edge. Probably because I worked in the collectables field for many years.
Miki! Cole is a very close second though… and Kane.. and.. 👀 this was a hard question!
Miki! Though Cole is a very close second.. and Kane.. and.. 👀 this is a hard question!
Rook and Dante together are just plain amazing
Kim Jae Min is my favorite. Or maybe Scarlet. Or Claudia. Oh hell, it’s just too hard to decide!
I love Rook…. definately need more Rook. But Kai is also amazing, The Morgans are amazing… how the hell are we supposed to pick just one???
I’m excited for anything you write!!
I love Forrest – my first Rhys Ford character and still the best. Although Rook Stevens comes a close second. And Dude of course, can’t forget Dude!
Miki!! Closely followed by every other character you’ve brought to life. Love your writing.
Miki!! I adore everything about him. And then for something completely different I love Dante. The things that come out of his mouth? No wonder Rook fell.
I think it would have to be Rook. I don’t know why, but yeah, Rook.
I’m going to have to go with Ivo and I can’t wait for his story to be here.
It’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite, but two of my top picks would be Miki and Kai. Miki, cause he’s a sass master, and Kai for his sheer dogged determination to survive and not depend upon anyone.
Oh god too hard to pick one Ivo, Miki, Brigid, Kai, Roku
Kai – just testing.
Kuro is my new favorite! Also, when is Wayword Wolves 2 happening?
Good question. I have to figure out Eli’s partner.
Miki. I adore him and love his strength and fight. 🙂
Wolf Kincaid, because he was my first bad boy by Rhys
Hard to choose. I like Forest and Connor but also Rook and Dante.
Hmmm… so far, Neko is my favourite
How can you(I) choose a favorite?…so many of her characters find a place in my heart❤️
I look forward to getting to know Ivo better & seeing how his story plays out.
I’m new to her books, so I don’t have a favorite yet.
Ivo is definitely my favorite too!
I love them all and can’t choose just one, nope can’t do it. Can’t wait to add Ivo to my list.
Such a difficult question.Right now I think it’s a battle between Rook and Zig. I would love to read more about them both,
Cole is my favorite. Well, I love all of your characters, but the ones in the Cole books are favorites. It was my first Rhys series!
Miki is my favorite character, followed by Kai. But I seriously like all of Rhys characters, they each have characteristics that make them lovable!
Really difficult to choose so I pick Cole as my favourite.
Rook or Miki. Cant pick just one
Winney Voice…. don’t make me choose… please! Although I have a soft spot for Kai.
Cole is my favorite character, the Morgan’s are my favorite family (so far ;-))
generally which ever couple I’m reading. I mean really, i can’t pick a fave series, how do expect me to pick just one couple, they’re all wonderfully wonderful in their way ;p
Alex is my favourite character. He was just so much fun.. always finding dead bodies.
If I have to pick a favorite, I have to choose Jake Moore 🙂
I like your newest character: Kuro but am always partial to Tristan and Wolf.
Quinn. I have a processing disorder, and some of his mannerisms and adjustments were similar to my own.
Quinn. I have a processing disorder, and I related to him more than I normally do with characters.
I love all the boys! cant wait to read Hellion!
Miki. He was my first Rhys character. Cole, Jae and Quinn follow. Truly there isn’t a character that I don’t like!
My favorite character is Miki.
I lurve Ivo. And dude, I am so excited for his story.
Out of the books I’ve read, Cole is one of my favorite characters. I am fond of many of the secondary characters in the Cole McGinnis series, too. I also very much like Roku and his world and would like to learn more about it. Hard to choose… 🙂
I love them all, but Cole was my first and is still my favorite.
If I absolutely have to choose, I’d have to say Miki, because he was my first.
You can’t make me choose, there’s too many that are my favs, Tristan, Cole, Deacon, Rook, Forest, and Ivo.
They are ALL my Favourite and I wont be made to choose
Miki is my favorite.
Quinn Morgan spoke so loudly to me that I basked in it… he was that dark horse that showed up just when I needed him most.
I love Zig from Fish Sticks and Fridays! She is just absolutely adorable with her attitude and her cursing and her punk like outfits.
Jae is my favorite
I love all of the people in your universe, but if I had to choose only one to hang out with it would be Duke because he starts the whole Sinners series:)
My favorite one is Kai
I just can’t choose a favorite, simply can’t. So I’ll go with the first book of yours I read and say… Cole.
I’m not sure, but Deacon Reid is one of the characters I like.
Mimi will always be my favorite.
Miki! I hate spellcheck
Kai was my first love, but Miki has a special place in my heart.
Can’t wait to listen to Ramen Assassin! I’m really liking Rook right now but I think my heart belongs to Miki!
Kai is my favorite.
It is Miki. Love his prickly take no crap attitude.
Kai or Rook
Has to be Miki.
Kai is my spirit animal <3
Keep them coming Rhys! We need more books!
So many characters! I’d have to say Donal. I just love him!
My favorite is Ryder, Clan Sebac, third in the House of Devon, and High Lord of the Southern Rise Court, San Diego.
I really like Zig. She’s quite the kid!
I like Miki St. John, but I also love Quinn.
Forrest all the way.
