Jordyn Kross

I’m Jordyn Kross, award-winning, unapologetically naughty author of erotic romance. After years of writing tech manuals and marginal poetry, I discovered that I much prefer writing about fictional characters who will go to any lengths to get their happily ever after.

When I’m not writing, I can be found attempting to garden in the desert Southwest, hiking with my insane pound posse, and admiring that handsome man wandering around my house who continues to stay.

And when I’m not in social media jail, I can be found on Facebook, Instagram, and Goodreads, or hiding in a dark cave peering out at Twitter. Subscribe to my newsletter.

Preorder Hell Hath No Furry

Headline: Furry Found Flattened in the Forest

Mikaela “Mike” Mitchell, reporter for Daisy, TX, and maid of honor for her best friend’s wedding, has everything under control—until she trips over a dead guy in a fur-suit.

She promised the big day would be purr-fect—and an active crime scene just isn’t the vibe she’s going for. Unfortunately, with the annual Cowbells and Crops adults-only convention in town, the complications keep piling up.

So instead of organizing tents and tablecloths and writing articles on how to have a spanking good time, Mike’s going to catch a killer—whether her growly boyfriend, Ryder, likes it or not.

And that would be…not. But what’s the big deal? The killer isn’t coming after her. Right?

Open Enrollment

My first science-fiction romance, originally published in the Falling Hard anthology is now available as an ebook. This short story is actually the second book in terms of the timeline in the Uhraervi Brothers series. The first is in the Holiday Shorts anthology. This series was inspired by my wondering what if aliens found the NASA “boarding passes” for the Mars Perseverance.

Chandra Russell, premier astrophysics professor, has evidence spaceships are visiting Earth but everyone in her department thinks she’s crazy. When she’s abducted by an actual alien, Praduchs Felixiuh, she’s not sure if she should celebrate or panic.

After receiving Chandra’s approved enrollment form, Praduchs changes course to rescue her from a dying planet, even though his time would be better spent continuing his explorations instead of wooing a mate he doesn’t want. No matter how fascinating she is. Still, he must convince her to stay or he’ll face severe punishment from the Uhraervi council.

News and Works in Progress

Great news!  Shattered Ice has been selected as a finalist in the New Jersey Romance Writers’ Golden Leaf Contest. I’ll find out more in December.

This is the section where I share all the stuff I should be working on when I’m procrastinating. I really need more time to procrastinate. There just aren’t enough hours in the day for that.

Currently, I’m working on the third story Uhraervi Brothers story. This time Sig is going to get his chance at a mate who isn’t interested in settling down at all.  My tagline for this story is: Whoever said Earth girls are easy was lying.

I’m also planning another short story for 2023 and I’m planning to spend the winter holidays doing series level plotting. Yes, Amy will get her story in 2023 (Shattered Ice – IYKYK). Not only is she getting a story, she spawned an idea for an entire contemporary series!

Around the edges of all this, I’ll be working on my sci-fi series. As always, it’s core will be erotic romance. This won’t be related to my Uhraervi brothers that are making appearances in the Passionate Ink anthologies.
