The Island Duet Book Trailer

 

The Island Duet coming March 2019

How far would you be willing to go to change your life?

All I wanted was to find some peace.

To find myself again.

Falling in love wasn’t part of that plan.

But everything changed the day I met them.

Gabe and Michael.

So different.

And yet together, they are perfect.

I can’t decide which one I love more.

And maybe I don’t have to.

Because they both love me too.

Can three people really love each other?

Or was it the air of the island messing with our hearts and minds?

The Island – rewritten!

duo

I cannot begin to express how excited I am getting about this duet. I’m 4 chapters away from having my first draft of book one done, and on to the next! It’s been so much fun going in and playing with this story, adding more to it, adding in Michael and Gabe’s perspective – and I cannot wait to share it!

Since the book is written and all I have to do is rework it – I expect to publish by late February – early March. Stay tuned for details! ♥

 

Something Like This – Chapter One

The book you’ve been waiting for – Something Like This – The Men of Evansdale County is one week away! After The Space Between Us came out, that’s what everyone asked me over and over! “When do we get Vin and Von?” Well the wait is over!

And as a little peek – Chapter One of Something Like This

Fun fact. I love douche bags.

There’s just something about an overly cocky guy that drives me wild.

I don’t know what it is, really. Maybe it’s the over-use of the word bro, or that they think tank tops with quotes about their ‘guns’ are always in season, even if it’s snowing. Maybe it’s the way they wear sunglasses in nightclubs and how they show off their abs every chance they get. Maybe it’s the tight t-shirts that smell like cheap drugstore body spray, or the way they chug energy drinks like I guzzle coffee. Maybe it’s the monster-sized ego’s that makes them think they are quite literally God’s gift to women. And to the world.

The real reason I think, is that I like to knock them down a peg or two. And maybe it’s a little about the abs.

Like the guy sitting in booth six. He has all the telltale signs of being a total d-bag. Sunglasses on while he eats his eggs and hash-browns. Muscle shirt that reads ‘suns out, guns out’, backward flat-billed, white ball cap—and he’s shiny. Really freaking shiny. Like maybe he’d coated himself in baby oil before he came here so that his massive, bronzed muscles would stand out even more.

I mean, really, they were pretty big. As in, they could probably get their own zip code big.

He was sitting in a booth with a pretty red-head who was hanging onto his every word. She was staring at him like he was the sun—and he was ignoring her and taking selfies. Of just himself. Which is a classic d-bag move. He’s done the duck face, the tongue out face, and the duck face with a peace sign.

Yep. Suspicions confirmed.

And the red-head? She didn’t seem to mind too much, she just chattered away and smiled at him. Poor girl. She’s just like me. Once you go douche, you don’t go back.

They’re addictive. Like when someone gives you a big box of chocolates and you say you’ll only to eat one, and suddenly you’ve not only binge watched six episodes of New Girl in a row, but the whole box is empty? Yeah, they’re like that. They make your brain go all gooey. It’s the swagger and the attitude. And the sex.

God, I miss sex.

With a deep sigh, I tore my gaze away from the couple in question and poured a cup of coffee for one of my regulars. Chase. He’s an adorable businessman who has excellent taste in ties, the best haircut I’ve ever seen and a smile that suggests he takes meticulous care of himself. He’s attractive—fine—he’s gorgeous in that whole chiseled jaw and tall dark and handsome way, and he flirts with me and leaves me huge tips, which I appreciate.

Plus his name is Chase. That already has romantic hero written all over it. But the story of Chase and me will never happen, and I’ll never find out if Chase kisses as good as I think he might. One of these days, he’ll make his move. He’ll slide me his business card along with my daily five-dollar tip for a one-dollar cup of joe. I’ll have to smile and shoot him down and possibly lose my daily five-dollar tip. Because that’s just my life now.

It all changed seven years ago, the minute I stared into those impossibly big, dark eyes and she yawned, stretching a tiny arm up that landed on my chin. That’s all it took for me to fall madly and hopelessly in love with my daughter. Real love. Not like the little puppy crushes I’d had, but an actual heart-melting, heart-wrenching, throw myself in front of a bus for another human being kind of love.

Life now? I wake up early and start the water for the fields and feed the animals. Then I shower and get ready for my job at Charlie’s diner. At night it’s me, my little girl Violet and my father—playing, making dinner and hanging out. I finish any remaining chores out in the fields, then I sit in the living room binge watching shows on Netflix or watch Dancing With the Stars with my dad until I pass out. On weekends Violet and I hang out with my bestie, Emma, and her kids, and sometimes her husband Dean watches all three of the kids so we can have a girl’s night.  That’s my life now.

That’s it.

I’m a mom and everything I do, I do for her.

No dating. No guys, especially no d-bags or gorgeous businessmen in charcoal colored suits with teal colored ties. And no sex.

Thank God for vibrators.

Rocking Autumn nominated for Best Rock Star Romance | Rocking Forever ♥ |Book Signing

Somehow, some way – someone nominated Rocking Autumn for Best Rock Star Romance on Love&Lace InKorporated’s Fall 2018 book awards. Somehow, it made it to the top ten (and I never even knew it was there) and is up for final voting. My heart about burst out of my chest into a million pieces of heart-shaped confetti. If you would take a moment to vote, I would be oh so humbly grateful → https://www.facebook.com/events/1734712166625874/permalink/1758985437531880/

Thank you to everyone who has purchased and reviewed the audio version of Rocking Autumn. It was so fun at my recent book signing to have so many people approach me about having just listened to it, and falling in love with Jaxtumn (though I’m sure it had more to do with Steven Barrett’s voice than anything)

The signing was incredible, I truly enjoyed talking to everyone who came to my table. I loved meeting some authors that I have been fan-girling over forever (Teri Kay, BT Uruella, Golden Czermak, CC Monroe, Amy Briggs, S Van Horne and PA Vaschon just to name a few) I got to meet the amazing Reggie Deanching – photographer of the cover to How We Fall and got to watch the behind the scenes of a photo shoot – all in all…an amazing weekend I will cherish forever.

So now…drum roll please…

Rocking Forever is FINALLY happening. I kept promising it, and kept having a hard time. Now it’s time to take Jaxtumn off their pedestal and fuck with them a little bit…and then give them a real HEA ♥  and uh…just FYI…Steven already asked to do Rocking Forever 😉  also that’s not a final cover…just a little proto-type.
