Almost a Bride, and other things!

Sarah Mayberry - Friday, April 11, 2014

I wrote a novella! More specifically, I wrote a fun, heartfelt, sexy little story of 40,000 words for Montana Born Books, and it's out (officially) on Kindle on the 14th of April. For those of you who are quick off the mark, Almost a Bride will be at the special introductory preview price of 0.99 cents for two days only - that's the 13th and 14th of April, US time, I've been told. After that, it will revert to its normal price of $2.99. I'll post buy links here they moment I have them, so keep checking back if they're not here yet. *** Okay, the deal is up, and here's the link. I hope you enjoy!!

Here's the book blurb so you know what I'm rambling on about:

Tara Buck has always been the good sister, level-headed by comparison to Scarlett, her flaky, impulsive twin. But when Tara learns her fiancé has been cheating on her with one of his school students, the orderly world she’s created for herself suddenly feels as if it’s falling apart. For years she chose the safe option, but from now on she’s going to live a little, stretch her wings…be a little daring. And if that means acting on the long-suppressed feelings she’s always had for Reid Dalton, then so be it!

Reid has wanted Tara from the moment he met her, but she’s always been out of bounds. Not only is she his patrol partner at the Bozeman PD, she’s also engaged. But then her relationship blows up, and Reid finds himself battling his own instinct to stake his claim with the finest, hottest woman he’s ever known.

Even if anything did happen between them, it would only ever be temporary – Reid’s a born wanderer, while Tara’s roots run deep in Marietta. So even if things are good between them, it seems their romance is destined to be short and sweet…

This book is set in Marietta, Montana, the fictional town in which all the Montana Born books are located. Surrounded by ranches, mountains, lakes, this is a small town of 10,000 souls, and over the coming months, many, many stories will be told about its residents. Tara and Reid, the heroine and hero of my book, were both born and bred in Marietta, and while Reid has always had a severe case of wanderlust, Tara is deeply attached to her home.

Once they get past the other things keeping them apart, this fundamental difference in how they see the world causes some issues for their burgeoning relationship. I'm not going to blab more in case I ruin the read for you, but I hope you get a kick out of these two people - I loved finding their happy ever after.

Her Kind of Trouble, my last Super Romance for a while, also came out at the beginning of April. This book was a dream to write. I had such a clear image of Vivian and Seth in my head, and I loved writing their provocative banter so much... Viv and Seth's story has some sadness in it, as well as some seriously hot steamy bits. I've been getting some truly lovely and touching feedback from readers about this one, and am over the moon that people are loving it so much.

Finally we come to Satisfaction. I have been so, so excited that so many people have had good - no, great! - things to say about this book, and that so many people are excited about the sequel, Anticipation, which I am hoping to have out by August. I can't wait to stretch my wings some more in the world of self publishing. Please keep writing to me and making contact via Facebook andTwitter - I love hearing from you, love hearing what you're excited about and what you want more of.

And in case you haven't noticed it, I have a new SUBSCRIBE button at the bottom of the navigation menu on my site (to your right, top corner). Click on that yellow button and fill in your email address, and I will make sure you always know when I have special deals going and new books coming out. Nothing horrible or spamm-y, I promise!

Okay. Off to write some words for the day. Happy reading, everyone.

“I meant with a man,” Claudia said dryly.
“Now why would I ruin something so good by inviting a man along?” Grace asked.
