As an author, I LOVE to read. Personally I am counting down the days until Tied With Me, by Kristen Proby is released. Eleven more days… Until then I am enjoying a fun compilation of stories in the book Here We Go Again, with a wonderful historical romance by Leigh Michaels. I have promised myself after I finish editing today I may read the next story in the anthology. I have also read the first in a series by Kerrigan Byrne, Unspoken, and I’m very much looking forward to reading the next two in the series Unwilling and Unwanted. Phew, she knows how to write her hot and spicy men. I look forward to the plane flight this Spring Break knowing I have so much to read and so little time.
I am currently working on a new book, The New Boris (not quite sure that this will end up being the final title) about a young woman whose father disappears. She’s not sure if he left because he owes money all over town, including to some scary Russians or if he’s dead. An unlikely romance sparks between the new boss (hence the new “Boris), of the Russian mafia and Lucky O’Rourke. What would you do if you fell hard in love with a man who while always a gentleman with you, was capable of being very, very, bad?
Available at amazon by clicking here. James and Emily’s story from Friday Harbor.
Emily Hansen had a rough start to life and she isn’t going to let anything get in the way of her future. She doesn’t trust easily and she sure isn’t going to be stupid enough to fall in love. She has a plan to finish college and start a career. She doesn’t ever want to depend or need anyone but herself.
James Whittier is blown away when his cousin Bree introduces him to her college roommate, Emily. She’s shy, quiet, and he immediately feels the need to protect her. He pursues her carefully, knowing that she needs her independence before she can learn that he’s trustworthy. He loves her, he needs her, but will she break down her walls and let him in?
This is a Friday Harbor story, the first one in the series is the Fourth Christmas, about Bree Canter, Emily’s roommate, and Eric Thorsten. The books can be read independently, and if you enjoyed James and Emily’s story, you’ll love Eric and Bree’s.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Her Lucky Number by Tobi Doyle
Matt Coleman is a successful professional football player with good looks and great personality that everyone loves. Everyone except the new place kicker’s sister, Cami. He’s not used to open hostility and when he turns on the charm she turns him down cold. Even when he tries to be a nice guy he manages to screw it up. He’d like to ignore her, but he can’t. She’s beautiful, funny, incredibly sweet, and he wants her. If he could just get her to stop hating him so much…
Cami Lansing loves her family more than anything. When her older brother Gabe gets a great contract as a place kicker and moves to California he wants her to come with him. Being born deaf Gabe has never been comfortable speaking in public, and he relies on Cami to speak for him. She doesn’t mind except that she seems to be stuck in the path of destruction in the form of his teammate, Matt Coleman.
Matt is too attractive, too charming, and loves to whip his fans into frenzies which have resulted in her concussion, broken foot, and second degree burns down her back from scalding coffee. She can’t seem to avoid him, although she desperately tries. She’d like to hate him but he’s so sweet to her brother and well, she’s attracted to him also.
If only they could get their chemistry to be compatible instead of so combustible.
You can follow this link to the James and Emily’s Page. The next book in I guess what I should call the Friday Harbor Series. The first book was The Fourth Christmas. I am hoping to publish this on Valentine’s Day.
I actually took this picture in London at Kensington Gardens. It was SUCH a beautiful day and a wonderful trip. We saw Shakespeare in the Park after having a picnic lunch. Life is sweet!
This book is about James and Emily’s romance. She’s Bree’s roommate from The Fourth Christmas and she falls madly, intensely in love with James. I hope to have it completed by Valentines Day!
I’m working on a series of short stories for Valentine’s Day. I thought it would be fun to try Kindle’s Countdown Promotion, so Aidan and Olivia’s Story, and Joe and Nikki’s story will be on sale for 1.99 January 9 through Sunday, January 12th.
Free through Christmas Eve is Eve ver. 2.0. The very first book I finished writing and published. Since then I have had many ideas, but I will always have a special place in my heart for Sara and Thomas. I hope you enjoy this first book and have a wonderful Holiday. Just click here for your free download. As always, I hope you enjoy the book and I’d love your honest feedback on Goodreads or Amazon.
