Buckle up, it's going to be a busy few months.
First up, I have a digital-only short coming out in August that will be FREE on Kindle, Kobo, ibookstore, etc, etc. Called Her Favorite Temptation, this 65000 word not-really-a-novella links to my September Super Romance, Her Favorite Rival. I am very excited about both these stories. They were emotional books to write, and I found myself getting very invested in finding a happy-every-after for Leah and Audrey and their men, Will and Zach.
A little about each of the books:
Her Favorite Temptation is Leah's story. She's the younger sister, and the golden-haired child of the family. She can do no wrong - as long as what she wants to do coincides with what her domineering mother wants her to do. When the book opens, Leah is making a stand for the first time in her life and not particularly enjoying the resulting heat she gets from her parents. Their conflict makes her question many things about her life, including her distant relationship with her older sister, Audrey. As she grapples with these family issues, she also battles a growing attraction to the sexy, scruffy musician who has moved in next door. Will Jones is one half of the Grammy-award winning duo Galahad Jones, and he finds it both amusing and refreshing that Leah has no idea who he is. He's in town because he's been diagnosed with a potentially devastating condition, something he withholds from Leah until the last possible moment. Their journey toward love and recovery challenges Will's pride and Leah's sense of worth, but it's worth it (I think!).
Her Favorite Rival is Audrey's story. Unlike her younger sister, Audrey was never smart enough or good enough, and after acting out in her teen years she's been labelled the black sheep of the family and treated accordingly. She is extremely tough on herself, holding herself to a high standard, and part of that is excelling - exceeding - at work. She's determined to nail the next promotion that comes up, but she's painfully aware that her greatest rival for the position, Zach Black, is charming, qualified and a real contender. He's also very hot, and even though she tells herself she hates him, it's a position that dissolves pretty quickly when they're forced to work with one another on a project. A new cut-throat CEO, intense work pressure and undeniable desire combine to put both Audrey and Zach through the wringer. The question is, will their burgeoning feelings survive the test?
As a Super Romance, Her Favorite Rival will be available in both print and e-book, while Temptation will only be available in e-book. My apologies to those of you who are still reading paper-only. If it helps lure you to the "darkside" at all, I was once adamantly anti-e-book, but I am now a passionate e-book convert because I ADORE having all my books with me at once. Getting stuck on the train or being forced to wait for an appointment is a joy when I have so many books to choose from - I may even be guilty of arriving early sometimes just so I have an excuse to squeeze in some more reading time.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these books if you get a chance to read them. It was a joy writing them - not every second, you understand, because every book has its dark, pesky, crazy moments - but I am very attached to Audrey and Leah after going on their journeys with them, and I hope the same will happen to you!
