It's been a crazy September what with putting a book out while being heavily pregnant. So before I actually burst - really truly actually burst - I wanted to say a big THANKS to all of you who have supported me in this time. Whether you bought Love Lost and Found, told someone else to buy it, or just cheered me on -
And just as importantly, it takes a whole bunch of people to make a book. So a big thanks to the fabulous editors (Alethea, Rima Jean and, Laura Anne) publicity team (Misa and kiwi girl Emma), critique partners (Bronwyn, Carmen, Tania and Trudi), support partners (lovely James), twitter cheerleaders (sci-five Evie B) and general ace friends that I have in my life. To the other September release ladies (Marisa, Hayson and Sofia), way to go! Now all I have to do is enjoy the ride of having another book out in the world, and have this baby! But in the mean time, don't forget that I'm all over the net answering questions, and unless I'm actually in labor - I'll be stopping by to chat on all these blogs.
And if you've missed it - Love Lost and Found is ready and waiting to bring you a good dose of seriously happy ever after ;-) on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel and iBooks!
And finally - the last (but definately not least, because - cowboys!) of the Fab Four Indulgence Release laaadies. The lovely Marisa Cleveland stops by with her new title Reforming the Cowboy. Take it away Marisa!
1. Four words to describe Reforming the
Cowboy: Sex, skepticism, sincerity, and strength
2. Four Favorite Indulgences: Cuddling with
hubby, sipping champagne, nibbling on strawberries, and reading a romance
3. Four women/characters my hero, BILLY,
would never date: Cruella de Vil, Catwoman, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Mystique
from the X-Men
4. Four pick up lines my heroine, LACEY,
would never go for:
you have a band aid? I scraped my knee falling for you.
if being sexy was a crime, you'd be guilty as charged!
is something wrong with my cell phone. It doesn't have your number in it.
must be a hell of thief, because you stole my heart from across the room.
Country singer Billy Hardy needs to get back on the charts. His
manager assures him headlining the opening of a cafe in South Beach is his best
chance at getting back to the big time. If he fails, his career is over for
good this time.
Lacey Durant can't believe opening night includes the country
singer she crushed on through college. And her customers agree he's dreamy. But
his playboy reputation threatens her cafe's image and she can't afford that.
She insists Billy stay with her so she can keep an eye on him, and thwart overenthusiastic
Billy's charms and Lacey's sexy curves prove more than either can
resist, but she refuses to be just another lyric in his well-known songs of
Marisa loves to laugh, hates to cry, and
does both often. She married her best friend, and her adult romance novels
focus on sensual relationships developed through friendship. She loves to
connect with readers.
Thanks to Sofia Harper and Hayson Manning for coming on over this month. You can grab their Indulgence release titles now - and of course Love Lost and Foundis ready and waiting to Pleasure your Shelf! :-) Happy Reading!
But next up in the September Release Fab Four ladies from Indulgence is Hayson Manning with Winning the Boss's Heart. Hayson writes fun and flirty
romances with alpha dudes and sassy woman. She lives in Sydney with her lovely
sloth children, infuriating but much loved shoe-dropping husband, a tubby
opinionated cat (as if a cat doesn't ever have an opinion). There will often be
a foster dog parked on the couch waiting for their forever home. She loves a
good glass of wine, dreams of winning the lottery, cries while watching
Antiques Roadshow and is cannot speak she's sobbing so much by the end of
Undercover Boss. She is also an expert at finding new and inventive ways to
avoid exercise. Take it away Hayson!
Name the four
women/characters your hero would never date
Mason isn’t a big dater, but he’d never
date a chatter. He’d only date women who don’t want a commitment. He’d never
date a woman who wears her heart on her sleeve. He’d prefer to date a woman
who’d go for a formal restaurant dinner over a picnic lunch in the sun playing
‘name that cloud.’
Pick the four pickup lines your heroine would never go for.
Do you want your eggs over easy or
fertilized. (Doesn’t that make you shudder?)
It’s your lucky day. Out of all the girls
here I chose you to talk to.
I have a body part that is eleven inches
long. Wanna see?
Good news, the test results are negative!
the Boss’s Heart
Mason Christian has twelve weeks to flip
something old into something new, and then he's getting the hell out of
Footsteps Bay - a tiny New Zealand coastal town. Not even his temporary
secretary and personal assistant--the feisty, luscious Billie McLeod--will
deter him, but there's no denying she makes him feel alive. More alive than
he's felt in three years...
Billie has one dream: save enough money to finish
her degree. That's why she's agreed to work for hard ass,
all-business-no-pleasure Mason Christian--a man who has every intention of destroying
through modernization the town's most cherished historical home. Before she can
say 'see ya' she's signed on the dotted line and is contractually bound to be
Mason's forty-second assistant. But working with male perfection every day is
awesome with a capital A--as long as they can stick to a hands-off policy that
gets harder every day...
