A lot of people have been asking me about paperbacks lately. All of my books are now available in paperback on Amazon. I know many of you have been really patient waiting for these–sorry it took so long! I’ve included links for all of the paperbacks over on the books page. Enjoy!
p.s. The 6th Ransom book is coming along. I keep feeling like I’m getting close to the end and then it gets longer…and longer…at this rate the book is going to be huge! Stay tuned for release date info!
I’ve been working on a brand new book series and I’m excited to announce that the first book, Intrigue, is available now! This book features hot rockstars and plenty of romance–my favorite combination! The Intrigue series is a spin-off of the Ransom novels. I know many of you have been missing the Ransom gang–you’ll be able to catch up with them in Intrigue and meet a whole new set of characters! I hope you’ll check it out!
Lance Foster is finally getting everything he ever wanted. His band, Intrigue, has the number one record in the country. Screaming fans, crowds of paparazzi, television performances, photo shoots—not to mention more than his fair share of female attention. Being a rock star definitely has its perks and Lance is determined to enjoy all of them.
Willa Nathans has never fit in. Sent to a special school for the “exceedingly gifted” as a child, she spends most of her time buried in books and equations—which doesn’t exactly leave much room for a social life. But all of that ends now. Lance Foster has been her crush for years and Willa is determined, finally, to show him just how much she’s changed.
There’s just one problem—Lance is her brother’s best friend and band mate. And if there’s one thing Lance knows, it’s that Willa is strictly off limits. No matter how difficult he might find it to stop thinking about her.
When Lance’s ex shows up, kid in tow, he realizes that hiding his feelings for Willa from her brother is the least of his worries. Lance is good at one thing—rock and roll. How on earth is he supposed to take care of a kid? When Willa agrees to step in and help out, he knows she’s saving his ass.
What he doesn’t count on is how much more complicated things can get when those pesky hidden feelings refuse to disappear…
Lola’s name and celebrity gossip have always gone hand-in-hand—that’s just the price she pays for being young, beautiful, and famous in Hollywood. But when the paparazzi catches her in a steamy embrace with one half of America’s favorite movie star couple, Lola knows things are about to get bad.
If Lola wants to keep working in this town, she’s going to need some major image rehab. According to her publicist, what Lola really needs is an All-American boyfriend to salvage her bad-girl reputation. Sam Medina is the perfect choice to play the part—hard-working, decent, and decidedly not famous.
He’s also sexy as hell. And he’s interested in being a lot more than a pretend boyfriend.
Lola needs someone to save her career, not fight for her heart. But Sam refuses to follow the script…
Always You is now available! This is the 2nd book in a new small town romance series called Lilac Bay. I’ve been having a really great time getting to know the characters on this little island and I’m already excited to plan out book 3.

For as long as she can remember, Riley James has wanted to work in television. And more often than not, Riley gets what she wants. There’s a reason, after all, that she’s considered the most competitive person on Lilac Bay Island. Riley likes to win. So when Lilac Bay is chosen to participate in a reality TV show, it’s only natural that Riley leads the charge to bring home a victory for their small town. And who better to help her than her best friend, Andrew? As the competition kicks into gear, the stakes for Riley and Andrew get higher. The line between reality and the game isn’t so easy to find. This time the two old friends are playing for keeps. And love might be the ultimate prize.
I have really exciting news! I’m participating in a brand new series with some author friends called FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. We’ll be releasing brand new, full-length books twice a week for the next month! All of these books feature friends that realize they can be MUCH more! The best part–each one will be available for pre-order and release for only 99c! None of these authors ever release full novels at that price–including me!
The first book up is Deanna Roy’s The Billionaire’s Ballet. I’ve already ordered it and have it waiting on my kindle!
The Billionaire’s Ballet by Deanna Roy
Juliet left for dance school pining for the son of her mother’s billionaire boss.

Where Your Heart Is has arrived! This is the first book in a brand new series that I’ve been working on for AGES! Seriously, it feels like I’ve been hanging out with these characters for a year without being able to talk about them with anyone! So I’m very excited to finally release the people of Lilac Bay out into the wild. I really hope you like the first book in the new series. Yay!

Thank you guys so much for being patient. It was a much longer wait than I had planned and I know it was a long wait for you as well. I really hope it was worth it! This book means so much to me and I’m really glad to finally be able to share it with you. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
With book 5 out, I’m already getting questions about what comes next. There will be another Ransom book! I’ve always planned for a sixth book to wrap up some of the loose ends of the series. At this point it’s mostly plotted out and I’m pretty excited about it. This isn’t going to be a quick book though! It likely won’t be released until next year, for lots of reasons. First of all, I think the book is going to be looong. There’s a lot to cover in book 6! I’ve been neglecting my other series to get the Ransom books out and I’m really itching to write about the Three Girls and the Lovestruck gang. But I promise I won’t forget about the Ransome boys. I love them too much to stay away for long ❤
I really hope you guys like Lennon and Haylee’s story Thank you SO MUCH for reading!
I’m sooo anxious and excited for you guys to read Lennon’s book! My editor has finished working on Rescue and passed it on to the proofreader. This is the last big step! I’m very hopeful I’ll be able to get the book out next week. If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, you can do that here and you’ll find out about the release date as soon as I have it.
In the meantime here’s the beautiful cover Najla made for me and a brief synopsis about the book. I can’t wait!

Lennon can’t remember what it feels like to be happy.
He might be one of the famous Ransome brothers, the bassist for the hottest rock group in the country, but fame and fortune can’t fix this. There are nightmares he doesn’t understand. Memories he can’t explain. And always, always the unshakable sense that he’s made a terrible mistake. A mistake that changed the course of his family’s lives forever. His brothers don’t know how to help him. His father doesn’t know how to help him. And he certainly doesn’t know how to help himself.
Then he meets Haylee Hunt, the lead singer of Ransom’s opening band. And just like in the best love songs, everything changes. With Haylee, Lennon doesn’t have to feel so afraid all the time. The guilt that haunts him seems to fade, just a little. Because Haylee, somehow, seems to understand exactly how it feels to be broken.
But the hazy memories refuse to fade away. The nightmares are getting clearer. And even Haylee won’t be able to help him when the past finally crashes back into his life.
I have been getting lots of questions about a release date for the new Ransom book. I’m happy you guys are eager and excited for Lennon’s story! I turned Rescue over to my editor last week, which means we’re getting close! It usually takes a few weeks to go through several rounds of editing and proofreading but that can vary quite a bit. That means I’m not able to give a firm release date quite yet. The holiday season can also impact the release date–many of the ebook vendors shut down for publishing over Christmas. I think it’s probably a safe bet to look at early January 2016 for the release. If everything happens to go quicker than expected, of course I’ll publish it ASAP! Stay tuned to my Facebook page and sign up for my newsletter for updates.
Did you guys check out A Three Girls Christmas? This is a short story about Annie, Ginny, and Jen and it’s available now! This short story was originally featured in a charity anthology several years ago but this is the first time you can purchase it on its own.
Tomorrow is going to be another Stuff Your eReader event! Dozens of ebooks from bestselling authors will be available for free. These events are always really fun and there’s a great group of authors participating this time. Check my Facebook page and newsletter for links tomorrow!
Lastly, I want to thank everyone for being so patient with me! My schedule didn’t turn out quite as expected this year for a variety of reasons. I really got slowed down and my releases just didn’t happen as quickly as I would have liked. I know some of you were hoping for more Three Girls this year and another Lovestruck book. I wish I could have made that happen! My goal for 2016 is definitely MORE BOOKS! The good news is that I’ve started a brand new series and book one is almost finished! So we should be getting off to a good start with Rescue and something new early in the new year. I’m also hoping for a new Three Girls AND a new Lovestruck in 2016. And I’m not finished with Ransom yet either 😉
I hope you are all enjoying the season and staying warm if you’re in a snowy northern climate like me! I’ve been enjoying lots of Christmas movies by the fire with my Lucy dog curled up next to me 🙂
