Crazy, reckless, and a sneak peek!

Hey, everyone!

Greetings from London!. Yesterday, I attended the London Book Fair and had such a great time meeting with vendors, talking to new and established authors, and going to seminars. I also got to meet up at a pub with some wonderful ladies who are part of the RARE London book signing, and finished off the day with dinner at a quaint Russian restaurant and browsing at Harrods. Starting today, the work part of the trip is over and the fun begins with a visit to a museum then vintage market shopping.

And guess what? You get to read  first couple of chapters of book four in the Hollywood Love series, Sex.  
Scroll down to the bottom of this email to read it! I can’t wait for you to experience this season’s drama as it is totally outrageous. Can I also say that I love Shelby? I know y’all hate on her, but I have to tell you that it is so much fun writing a manipulative gold digger! I’m sharing a couple quote graphics with you as well! Feel free to share or pin them. And thank you so much to those of you who responded to my question last week about which graphic you liked the best. You were about 50-50 split between the two, so I think I’ll have to use both!

A Sweet Quote!

Hey, everyone!

I’m super excited to share the first teaser for Sex, book four in the Hollywood Love series. You can expect lots of drama in this book and my most crazy proposal to date. I realized as I was going through the writing process, that I have written my fair share of proposals. I always try to do something meaningful for the couple. This couple hasn’t been together very long, but the guy is quite charismatic and I knew he’d go all out.

I was at the grocery store (something I typically try to avoid as much as possible) when I saw a tabloid about the newest drama on The Bachelor television show. And later, when this character was looking for some inspiration, I guess I remembered it because all of a sudden I typed that the girl was obsessed with the show. Which meant that I had to do a bunch of research so my character could do this right. I ended up watching hours of scenes from different parts of the show. Below is one of the funny YouTube video I watched. Thought you might enjoy it!

Fantasy Romance

Hey, everyone!

This week I want to talk FANTASY for just a bit. As I finish up edits on Sex and start plotting out Spy Girl 3: The Society, one of my favorite ways to get back into my characters is by dressing them, housing them, and imagining them in their world. Even though I don’t always share them, I still make Polyvore boards for a lot of the clothing that Huntley wears. Below is a Polyvore board with some of Dolce & Gabbana’s fairytale collection. I’m in love with all these pieces and am hoping we see the trickle-down effect of this look into more affordable fashions. Because if I could afford it, I would buy this entire line! Luckily, Spy Girl’s cover as the daughter of a billionaire means she does not have to wait. Expect to read about her wearing some of these amazing pieces.

And while we’re talking fantasy, I’d love to tell you about the EARTH ANGEL series from my Bandit Publishing company.  If you loved the epic love story in Twilight or my Keatyn Chronicles series along with the magic of Harry Potter,  I think you will love Earth Angel. (This series is appropriate for ages 15 and up.) Be sure to scroll down and read the magical excerpt!

Get book one, THE LETTER for ONLY 99¢. This price will be good for preorders and release day only, then will go back to its normal $3.99 price point. The first five books, THE LETTERTHE RINGTHE COVEN,  THE LIE and THE STRANGER are all released!

Forever by Monica Murphy 

She’s all I could ever want… I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away. So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems. But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel… Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine… Forever.

Easy Magic by Kristen Proby 

Family. Responsibility. Stability. As the co-CEO of Bayou Enterprises, and the eldest of the Boudreaux clan, Beau is the epitome of these. Now that his baby sister Gabby is happily settled down, Beau has moved into the company loft in the heart of the French Quarter to be closer to his office while his own home is built. He doesn’t have time for anything but the family he adores and the company that drives him. If only the bewitching owner of the herb shop downstairs from Beau’s loft wasn’t so damn tempting. Mallory Adams is living the life. The good life. The best life for her. After years of hiding who she is, and the gifts she’s been cursed with, Mallory opened her little shop in the French Quarter, offering herbs and lotions for anything from soothing a sunburn to chasing those pesky ghosts New Orleans is known for out of a client’s home. Some call her eccentric, and some say she’s simply odd, and that’s okay with her. She is a bit odd, but in her experience, all of the best people are. When an old pipe bursts in the loft above her store, flooding her storeroom, Mallory comes face to face with Beau Boudreaux, and she doesn’t need the clairvoyant abilities that have been passed down through generations to know that she’ll never be the same. Beau is her exact opposite; serious, straitlaced. He wears suits for Pete’s sake and probably wouldn’t know the difference between arnica and flaxseed if his life depended on it. But when he touches her, the electricity is through the roof and she’s smart enough to know that a chemistry like theirs doesn’t happen every day. Can two people so very different possibly find their way to happily ever after?

Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture.

One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again.
Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.

Dirty Doctor by Whitney G.

Being a doctor in New York City has never been easy. Especially for someone like me, who has a private practice and an incompetent staff who insists on leaving me to fill in for them. Over the past six months, I’ve performed one too many pap smears, three too many “breast exams,” and scrubbed in on several reconstructive surgeries. (This would be acceptable, if I was still interested in general medicine, but I’m not. I’m supposed to be a goddamn therapist …) When my team finally came to their senses and decided to bring someone more competent into the practice last month, I was actually elated. Until I realized that our new “doctor” was none other than the woman I was supposed to meet for dinner two weeks ago. The same woman who stood me up with nothing more than an “I can’t meet you anymore, sorry,” after we agreed to move our online talks into reality. I haven’t forgotten any of the filthy fantasies she told me about, and I never deleted our dirty messages. And if she thinks that I’m going to act like a “professional” and pretend like that shit never happened, she has another thing coming …

Catching Carly by Emma Hart 

My name is Carly Porter… And I’m really good at bad decisions.
How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb…
I had sex with my best friend’s brother.
Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.
And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.
Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?
Right.
