Exciting new! (and some changes)

Hey gang! I have some updates for you (finally) I have agreed to do a new trilogy for Berkley, who publishes my Sweet Series and the KGI series, and they’ll be publishing very quickly (so no long wait!) and they’ll be releasing them close together.

For those of you familiar with my Sweet Series, these new books will be very much that same flavor with a mix of my Harlequin Desires as well. I’ve jokingly said that if you take the heroine from Tycoon’s Rebel Bride and put her with Damon from Sweet Persuasion you have a good idea of the first book heh.

The Breathless trilogy will debut in Feb 2013 with the first book RUSH, followed by FEVER in April 2013 and BURN in August 2013.

This isn’t a new endeavor for me, rather I’ll be giving you what you’ve come to expect from me as an author. Emotional, sexy, erotic stories very much in line with the Sweet Series and all of my titles :)

Now, there WILL be two schedule changes to accomodate these books. I don’t want you to worry. There will be NO changes to my KGI series and their release dates nor will there be any changes to the Scottish historicals and their release dates. The ONLY two changes that will occur is that Theirs to Keep, the first book in the Tangled Hearts trilogy, will be delayed. I didn’t think it would be fair to my readers to begin the Tangled Hearts trilogy and then pause to publish this new trilogy and make you wait a year for the next book in the Tangled Hearts trilogy. So for now, that first book will be delayed.

Also, Colters’ Gift, which was originally scheduled for April 2013, will be delayed to fall 2013.

Theirs to Keep and Colters’ Gift are already written and turned in so they’ll both be published as soon as there is a logical place in my publishing schedule. I don’t want to overburden readers with a ton of Maya Banks books all at once.

I hope you’ll be as excited for the Breathless trilogy as I am and of course I’ll keep you posted on back cover copy, covers, and any other information as I soon as I receive it.

I just want to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for being so awesome to me. I’m going to do my absolute best to bring you the best books I can make them and I hope you’ll enjoy RUSH, FEVER and BURN! <3 <3 <3

  4. Allie says:

    I much prefer having trilogies come out in order, so I’m all good with this plan.

  5. Mikaela says:

    Oooh. Sounds great. I am wondering what happened to the Sweet spin off, or is it the same thing?

  6. Melanie J. says:

    Yay! Thanks for the update!

    I was actually wondering what happened with the Be With Me novella you were planning on writing as well..?

  7. Michelle says:

    Congratulations! Such wonderful news. I’m glad as well that the books will be published in order and relatively close together! Nothing hurts mroe than falling in love with a series and then having to wait :o)

    Of course as mentioned above, I too am waiting to hear about your Sweet spin off regarding the security detail in Connor’s book!

  8. Vanessa says:

    Congratulations Maya!

    To be honest… I wouldn’t be sad… overburden us! I look forward to your books and keep tabs for your new releases… could just be that I am greedy :-)

  9. Christine Fay says:

  10. JERRIS CHANEY says:

  11. Julie says:

    Maya I love your books and any info including new books is really great news!

  12. Carmen says:

    Love,love love the Colter series and the Sweet series. Looking forward to the new trilogy and of course the new addition to the Colter Legacy. Your books make me cry and hungry. Keep up your great works.

  13. jasmin says:

    maya banks I hope you change your mind and publish the books as promised. Colters series needs another book in the spring, not fall:)

  14. Sarah says:

    I went to Target today and went down the book aisle and glanced down and there was a sign that said NEW and Maya Banks Never Seduce a Scot. I almost did a happy dance right there. I have written one other time and I LOVED your other historicals so much. I got my husband to read as well. So, I am just starting the book now and will savor it. Thank you for another installment! Now get back to writing my friend!

  15. Robbie says:

    YAY!! I’m super excited about this new series. I’ll be like a kid on Christmas :)

  16. julie beckford says:

    love all your book’s Ive read all the kgi, highlander,colters as well as the sweetsurender seiers I haven’t been able to stop i find myself re reading all the book’s.They are that good. Can’t wait for more. i don’t know how you do it but keep it up…:)

  17. Rebecca says:

    This sounds wonderful!! However feel free to publish as quickly as you can. I am always ready to read your new stuff. I would read one every month if I could:):).

  18. Megan says:

    I am of two minds over this. On the one hand, I was looking forward to “Theirs to Keep” and “Colter’s Gift”, so I am disappointed they are delayed. However, on the the other hand, you basically just told us that for the next two to 3 years we have many wonderful stories to look forward to without wondering when something will be finished, just when it will be published. And I can live with that! I am so excited about your new trilogy, and I promise to be patient for everything else. Keep it up, Maya! You rock!

  19. Mary Jeanne Hoover says:

    You could publish everything all at once and I’d be very happy (but I know that’s not possible!). I’ve read every book of yours that I could get my hands on, and love every one! You keep writing and I’ll keep reading!

  20. Cindi Phillips says:

    Feel free to “overburden” us with all your books. Looking forward to all the releases.

  21. Sky says:


    I can understand about delaying the release of Theirs to Keep, and I agree with your reasons. Reading the first book in a trilogy and then having to wait a year (or more!) before book 2 comes out might irk some readers.

    However, I DON’T understand delaying the release of Colter’s Gift. As I understand it, Gift will complete the Colters series, so it’s not as if we’ll be forced to wait even longer before the next book in the series comes out, is it? Perhaps you could convince your publisher to release Gift at Christmas? Just from the title it would seem quite fitting! :-) And there would still be two months before the first book in the Tangled Hearts trilogy comes out, plenty of time for us die-hard fans to start getting jittery waiting for our next “fix”.

    In any event, while we’re waiting can you at least solve the riddle of exactly who will star in Colters’ Gift? Last I knew you had told us “the heroine is someone briefly mentioned in Colters’ Daughter.” By any chance is it Lauren (Max Wilder’s sister), whom we encountered shortly after she’d escaped from an abusive boyfriend? Come on, give us a crumb, pretty please??


  22. Appreciate you for sharing these types of wonderful blogposts. In addition, the right travel plus medical insurance plan can often eradicate those fears that come with visiting abroad. Your medical emergency can quickly become very costly and that’s certain to quickly set a financial impediment on the family’s finances. Putting in place the excellent travel insurance offer prior to setting off is worth the time and effort. Thanks a lot

  23. You’ve made some decent points there. I looked on the web to learn more about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this website.

  24. KRISTEN STINE says:

    I really love the KGI series they keep me on my toes. I finish the books in like 2 days keep them coming.

  25. I believe technological innovation just makes it worse. Now there is a channel to never treatment, now there won’t be considered a possibility for them to discover.

  26. Sharon says:

    I would like to read about Holly’s husbands parents and how they got it all started. It sounds fascinating and I’ve always been curious about them. I love all of the books and wait with what patience I can muster for them to come to Nook. Thank you for the hours of reading pleasure.

  27. olivia recalde says:

    I’m just waiting for:

    -Shades of Gray by you
    -Highlander Most Wanted by you
    -Lover at Last by J.R. Ward
    -Lara Adrian’s new book

  28. laurie says:

    Love all of your books-very excited for any and all of your new series-personally you would never overburden me with them all at once!!! congratulations can’t wait to read them!!!!

  29. Jenny says:

    Hey Maya,
    I loved your Sweet Series and just finished the Colter Series. I can not wait for the Colters’ Gift. When will the info come out on the book? Maybe an excerpt? Thank you for all of your wonderful stories. Some have had me laughing and crying. You are one of my favorite authors. Looking forward to the new series.


  30. mariana says:

    I agree with the readers who think that is to long to wait for Colter’s gift. Ladies, maybe we should all ask Maya to ask publisher for earlier release. Can we vote?

  31. Michelle says:

    My Girlfriend told me about the Colter’s series, OMG I can’t wait for more on the Colter’s I know you’ll be able to make more, and I can’t wait. I have to tell you that I HATE and I mean HATE reading but I could not put your books down! LOVED them and can’t wait to get my hands on more about the Colter’s and your other books. :)

  32. Lydia says:

    Maya : Please overwhelm us as I wait with anticipation for each and every book you write!

  33. LV Outlet Pa says:

    are There Any Real LV Outlets

  34. Ashley says:

    I have currently finished reading all the books from the Sweet Series.
    I loved them but must say I was a bit disappointed after buying them and finding so many errors in the ebook formats.
    In the Sweet Possession book, there were a couple errors where “Mav” was spelt May and also Faith’s name was spelt wrong a couple times as well.

  35. Maryanne says:

    Just started Sweet Persuasion and must say I love the book however I believe there is a name mix up in chapter three. Sometimes it says Faith and other times Julie so I eeither have misread it or its wrong.

  36. Summer Sheehan says:

    I love Gabe and Mia so much. I’d love to read more of their story. Fever and Burn are so good, too, but I connected on a deep level with Gabe and Mia.

  37. ANGIE DUSTIN says:
