Update on Jaguin’s Love

Writing on Jaguin’s Love is going well and I’m really liking how the story is going. It is turning out different (in a good way) than I was expecting. Sara is really a unique character.

As for a release date, I am looking at an end-May release.

Jaguin’s Love book cover has had an update and here it is:

What do you think of the video component to the book cover? It really catches your eye, don’t you think?!

Who is up for a teaser? Here is an unedited one for you:
Jaguin started forward, his gaze automatically moving to where the woman lay silently on the bed. He could see the thick bands of gold on her neck and wrists. His symbiot sat on the far side of the bed, its head resting on the pristine white sheets. Small threads of gold wove outward, replacing the narrow ribbons still moving over her body.
“It is a good thing you are her mate,” Tantor replied in a quiet voice, walking past the two beds toward the office area to the left. “She would not have survived if not for your symbiot’s ability to heal her. Our medical advancements are far greater than most, but nothing can heal the body the way a symbiot can.”
“What of the other woman?” Gunner asked with a frown. “She is not mated.”
“She had a concussion, as well as other injuries,” Tantor admitted with a shake of his head. “I was able to heal most, but not even our symbiots can heal a broken mind or soul. The female was awake, but she never spoke or responded. It was as if only her body were here, nothing else. I only have the evidence of what was done to the females on a physical level and can guess what was done to them on a mental one. Time will tell if they will survive.”
“The one has to,” Jaguin retorted, glancing through the clear glass back at where his mate lay. “She… She is mine.”
Tantor’s gaze followed Jaguin’s to the peaceful face. “I know,” he murmured. “You will need to be patient, Jaguin, until she wakes, I can only guess at what damage may have been done to her mind.”
Jaguin’s gaze remained locked on the young woman’s face. He didn’t even know what to call her, just his mate. She looked like a pale statue. Her breathing so slight that he could barely see her chest rising and falling. His symbiot moved closer, nudging one slender arm. Hope and determination flared inside him when her arm slid over the golden head. He knew that it had been the movement of his symbiot that caused her arm to move, but not her fingers. Warmth flooded him when the woman’s fingers curled ever so slightly into the silky smooth body of his symbiot.
“I will wait however long it takes,” Jaguin replied, feeling the rightness of his words.

Jaguin’s Love is coming soon!

  15. Becky G. says:

    Today is the 24th, and no sign of Jaguin and Sara. Any idea about a release date? I absolutely love this series as well as the Curizan and sarafin series.

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      I apologize. My hard drive died on my computer which threw me behind. I’m up and running again and hope to have it completed soon. The good news is I only lost part of a story. The bad news is, I lost part of a story. Even with a battery backup, computers do NOT like lightning!

  16. mlee says:

    So I stayed up last night. Hoping for this book to show on amazon. I checked at midnight. Kinda sad. 🙁 Actually, I was doing a paper and was having computer problems of my own. Did you get yours fixed? It was 4 am when I finally finished it. I would not have been able to read anyways. I still was hoping though. I check at 4 too. I checked again just now. I also checked for Rileys too on audible. Any news on either? Thanks!!!

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi mlee. Jaguin’s Love will be out June 21st and Riley’s audiobook will be out June 28th! Yes, but I’m still finding things I have to reinstall. It seems like just when I think I’m finished, I find another piece of software. I still never found the one book that I’m afraid was lost. What is going on with yours?

      1. mlee says:

        Yeah, I got your newsletter. Thanks for the replying back. I had to finish a paper with pictures included due at 9 the same morning. My computer kept freezing and would not let me print the pictures I needed. I have no idea whats wrong with it. Somehow, I got it to print after freaking out for three hours. I finished it and got two hours of sleep. I hope you find your book.

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          I’ve been there. Sometimes just restarting the computer will kick the drivers in for the printer. Turn off the printer, then turn it on and restart your computer, it might find the drivers. It can be really, really frustrating! I’m glad you got your paper done and hopefully have been able to catch up on your sleep! Hugs! xoxox

      2. Caitlin says:

        June 21st? I’m glad that it will be here during this month. As an avid reader of the series, I always look forward to reading new novels from you. I’ve been looking forward to this edition since I read Haven’s story. At least I won’t have to keep checking on Amazon to see if the book has been released. I can guarantee that I will purchase Jaguin’s Love first thing in the morning on the 21st

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          Thank you, Caitlin! xoxox

      3. Donald D Davis says:

        Always back up your files on a separate hard drive you can get a 5 terabyte hard drive at costco for around 10 just plugs in usb for those that don’t know a terabyte is 1000 gb of data about 900 dvd worth of video space

        1. S.E. Smith says:

          Thank you! I have one, though not 5Tb, that would be nice! Thankfully, I had all but one story that was in progress backed up. The good news is I emailed it to myself and finally found it! So, nothing lost except time to repair the computer.

  17. Betsy Bideler says:

    At the end of Merrick’s Maiden, you make a reference to Core’s Attack. Any word on that project?

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Hi Betsy, yes, Core and Avery’s story will be out this year. I have two more stories ahead of it, but the summer is just beginning! 🙂

  18. Kokikat says:

    Is this book will come in e-book too? I went to Amazon and the only thing they are offering is the paperback, not the kindle version. Please, help! By the way, love all your books. ✌?

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Yes, it will be available in ebook form everywhere June 21st!

      1. Kokikat says:

        Thanks, happy father’s day! Have a wonderful day!

  19. Emmy says:

    Is Jaguin’s Love going to be released in ibooks?

    1. S.E. Smith says:

      Yes, there was a minor issue that has been fixed (my name of all things! Eyes rolling). It should be available any day.
