I’m so so excited to finally release this book out into the world! I hope you like reading it as much as I liked writing it! Enjoy!
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.
Always You is being offered for only 99c for a limited time only! This book will normally sell for $3.99 so make sure you grab your copy before the prices go back up! Always You is my contribution to the Friends with Benefits series. All of the books in this series can also be purchased for only 99c for a short time. Stuff your e-reader with some cheap reads for summer!
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 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!
For a short time, several of my books are available in the Kindle Unlimited library. If you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can access some of the Three Girls books and the Love Story books for free! These books won’t be in the program for long so check them out ASAP.
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 🙂
Eeek! Starstruck is finally here! This is the fourth novel in the Lovestruck series and I’ve had it planned for AGES. I can’t believe I finally get to share it with you!
I have those usual release day jitters! This time they’re even worse because I really love these characters so much and I hope everyone else does too! It was so much fun to write in the Lovestruck world but to focus on different characters. I particularly loved writing about Jackson from a different perspective. Sofie gets to know him in a way that Lizzie doesn’t so it was fun to explore his character more in depth. I really hope you all like it!
Here are the links:
**The book has been published on Google Play but it is not live in the store yet. I will update here and on Facebook as soon as I have a link! Sorry for the delay.**
Here’s a little more detail about the new book:
Sofia Flores has had a crush on Jackson Coles for as long as she can remember. And she’s hardly the only one. After all, Jackson is one of the most famous movie stars in the entire world. Sofie never imagined she’d get any closer to her fantasy crush than admiring him on the big screen. Real life just doesn’t work that way.
But everything changes when her cousin Lizzie marries Jackson’s co-star, Thomas. Suddenly, Sofie finds herself actually meeting Jackson Coles, up close and personal. It’s every fan girl’s dream come true. And to Sofie’s shock, Jackson seems just as excited to spend time with her.
Despite Jackson’s attentions, Sofie knows that real life is rarely like the movies. Real life means struggling as a single mother, running out of money, and dealing with a loving but frustratingly obtrusive family. Not to mention the heaps of Baby Daddy Drama that continue to plague her…and threaten to take away the very thing she holds most dear in life. There’s simply no room in her life to go chasing after a movie star, even one as gorgeous as Jackson Coles.
But when Jackson shows that he’s more than willing to do the chasing, Sofie has a big decision to make. Will she play it safe? Or will she risk everything for the perfect Hollywood ending of her own?
Let me know what you think! xoxo
I have a brand new book available today! Persuaded is a stand alone novel inspired by my favorite Jane Austen novel, Persuasion. These were some of my favorite characters to write and I really hope you enjoy it!
Annabelle Elliot will always think of Rick Wentworth as the one that got away, the only man she ever loved. But Rick’s vision of their future together threatened the one that Annabelle had been working towards her entire life. Allowing her friends to persuade her to end it had definitely been the right thing to do…hadn’t it?
When Rick turns up at her office ten years later, Annabelle is dismayed to learn that the fate of her company, the company she’s given up everything for, now rests squarely on his shoulders. The only way she’s going to get out of this is to work with Rick. Successful, talented, gorgeous Rick, who’s threatening to stir up emotions Annabelle thought she’d long since banished. Rick, who clearly hasn’t forgiven her for their shared past.
But the more time she spends with him, the more Annabelle realizes just how much she’s had to sacrifice for her success. As the threat against her company grows and the people she trusts most start to turn their backs on her, Annabelle is faced with her biggest choice in ten years: Will she allow herself to be persuaded to settle again? Or could this be her second chance at love?
There’s a brand new Three Girls short story!
Snow Kissed is a short story set in the world of the Three Girls! It focuses on Bella, Kiki’s cousin, and her week spent babysitting with the girls. It was really fun to revisit the girls and I hope you check out the story! You can find it for a limited time in the LOL Volume 3 Anthology. For a short time the Anthology of 16 stories is only $.99! Some of my favorite romantic comedy writers, including USA Today and NY Times bestsellers, are in this anthology with me. You can find it here:
I wanted to share an update on the coming year and what I have planned. I can’t tell you how many times I get the question, “When will the next Ransom/Lovestruck/Three Girls book be out?” I LOVE knowing that you guys are excited about these characters and looking forward to reading more about them! I can’t give you exact dates right now, but I thought a brief overview was in order 🙂
The first book in 2015 is something brand new–Persuaded. I’m really excited about this chick lit novel, a modern version of one of my very favorite books–Persuasion, by Jane Austen. This book is just about ready for editing so it should be available in the next month or so. I can’t wait to see what you think!
Book 2 in 2015 is Sofie’s book! Starstruck is coming along really well! I think I’ll have a cover reveal in the next few weeks and the book should be ready early in the spring. There’s plenty of Lizzie and Thomas in this book. Sofie’s book WILL NOT be the last book in this series. There’s still lots of Lizzie, Thomas, Callie, Charlie, Jackson, and Medina family fun to come!
Book 3 of the new year is going to be in the Ransom series. I have some news about this book and I’m a little nervous it might make some people unhappy! I know a lot of you are really excited for Lennon’s book–I’m excited to write it! I’ve been going over (and over and over) my plot notes and my calendar and I just can’t figure out a way around this–I think Lennon’s books needs to be pushed back because Levi’s book has to come next. I know Lennon fans will be sad that his book won’t be the next Ransom book, but there are so many things that need to happen with Levi before Lennon’s story can be told. I am confident I can still write Lennon’s book in 2015, it just won’t be next.
In happy news, I’m REALLY liking the stuff I have planned for all of the Ransom characters in Levi’s book. I think you guys will be happy with it. And Lennon’s books will be here before you know it! 🙂
There will be a new Three Girls book in 2015! My initial plan is to release this book in the summer. I always miss the girls when I’m writing other books so I’m REALLY looking forward to getting back to Annie, Ginny, Jen, and Kiki!
…and something new!
I also have plans for a few novels in a brand new series. It’s always a little scary to step away from series and characters that my readers are invested in but I’m SO excited for the new series. I think it kind of has a Three Girls feel to it, so I’m hoping you guys will like it. The challenge, of course, will be balancing the new stuff with the series you guys are already into. I promise to work really hard to keep wait times between books as short as I can!
On that note, I should probably get to writing! Let me know if you have any questions. I hope the new year is treating you all wonderfully so far. It’s freeeeeeezing here!
If you’ve been waiting for Cash’s story, here’s your chance! The third book in the Ransom series, Redeem, is available now from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The book will soon be available from Kobo, iTunes, and Google Play.
I hope you enjoy it!
