The Tuesday Tease!

Hello all!

First, I have some serious awesomeness to share. Celestra was recently mentioned in a Buzzfeed article!!!!! Too fun, right? It was about books that should be turned into TV shows or movies. Fan-freaking-tastic, I know! Go check it out right HERE. I'll wait. 


Wasn't that fun?!

Second, I did it! I'm all done with WHISKEY KISSES and will probably send it off to my editor and betas today. Yay!!!! I'm so in love with Izzy and Holt and their aching brand of love. I just can't wait to share it with you. I'll give you a hard release date as soon as my editor tells me how much surgery I'll need to perform, but right now I'm guessing 2nd week of May-ish? Sooner—later? But that's soon, right?

Third, cover reveals, where are they? Why aren't they happening? Gah! Actually those are questions I have for myself. The awesome Regina Wamba is currently working on the cover for Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion Book 2) Gavin's story. *swoon* That's a super heated one just due to the sheer nature of Gavin. ;) And, well, given the fact he's fallen in love with a prostitute, that sort of heats things up as well. 

And, great news! Someone For Me (Someone to Love #3) finally has a cover!!!! I'm hoping my publisher will let me show it off next week. Kenny and Cruise look freaking hawt. It also has a sweetness about it and that's pretty special considering it's the last book in the series. (Release date July 1st) 

On to the teasers! 



Whiskey Kisses (3:AM Kisses # 4) Holt and Izzy’s story
(Izzy’s Point of view) *Each book in the 3:AM series can be read as a stand alone.

“You’re pretty good at this.” He dips his face into my neck and unabashedly takes a deep breath.
“Why are you always sniffing me?” I hold back the giggle ricocheting in my chest.
“Why do you always smell so damn good?” He lands a cushioned kiss over my neck and I pull back. “Sorry.” He blinks a quick smile.
“Don’t be. In fact, put your lips back there.” I take a deep breath and feel his body crushing over mine. “I was enjoying that.”


The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Skyla’s POV (Skyla and Marshall confronting Logan and Gage in Marshall’s dining room.)

“You’ve lied to me since the first day I stepped off that ferry.”
Logan and Gage exchange looks and conveniently don’t offer up any words to refute the theory.
Logan leans in. “Who exactly are you talking to?”
Both of you.”
Marshall’s chest widens with pride as he scoots into me. “It appears I’m the only honest soul in the room.” He cuts a sideways glance my way. “Other than yourself of course.”
Gage glowers at the Sector by my side. “You’re the only kiss ass in the room, too.”
My chest bucks with a silent laugh. “Oh Gage—oh Jock Strap—oh Mr. Oliver.” I say each moniker as its own expletive. “You would be lucky to ever get close to doing that again.”

Enjoy the week! XOXO

The Tuesday Tease


It’s Tuesday! Welcome back to the Tuesday tease! It’s going to be short and sweet today. (I’ll have a Dragon and the Rose teaser up for you next week!)
 Whiskey Kisses is in edits! I should have it to you by the end of this month beginning of next-ish?!


Whiskey Kisses (3:AM Kisses # 4) Holt and Izzy’s story
(Izzy’s Point of view)

“I’m thinking you should stay right here in this bed and never leave.” I blow the words right over his lips. “You in?”
“I’m in.” Holt lies over me and my robe opens voluntarily.
“There’s something I want to give you,” I whisper with my heart firing in my ears like a gunshot.
“What’s that?” He traces out my lips examining me like this, naked and splayed beneath him.
“All of me.”

Have a great week! It’s my anniversary today~! Happy anniversary to my man! We’ve rocked the first 25 lets rock the next! Loving the ride! XOXO

The Tuesday Tease~!


(Anyone want a signed copy of Celestra Forever After? Enter the giveaway here!)

Gah! It’s Tuesday again! I swear it’s like we’re on a loop. Oh, wait—we are.
I’ve been busy, busy! Whiskey Kisses is already in edits, and I’ve got a secret project that is hotter than a July moon that I’m just dying to share with you. I’ll be working on new covers for those so hopefully I’ll have that soon. 

Once again HUGE thank you for the awesome reception Celestra Forever After has received. I can’t thank you enough for that and the kind reviews. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Paragon is always such a pleasure for me and getting to share that with you is an indescribable joy. I’m already turning words in book two, The Dragon and the Rose, so hopefully that won’t take too long. I went ahead and did a teaser today but since the book is so new I don’t know if I’ll have them every week but I’ll sure try!

On to the teasers!

Whiskey Kisses (3:AM Kisses # 4) 
*Holt and Izzy’s story
(Izzy’s Point of view)

Holt is lean and mean and full of enough ego that lets everyone in a ten mile radius know he’s ready and willing to light any ripe coeds fire. But he keeps looking at me—lingering those silver eyes over mine like he means business. He comes over and leans in close. His cologne washes over me like a heat wave at midnight. I glance up at him and his cheek glides up one side as if all hell were about to break loose. And judging by the way my thighs are quivering, it so is.

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Skyla’s POV (Marshall comforting Skyla while dealing with the devastating aftermath of something she’s just witnessed.)

“He’s rotten fruit.” Marshall rubs my back and not even those fine tuned vibrations of his can comfort me.
“Rotten fruit,” I echo mindlessly but nothing in me believes it's true. He could never be rotten. Could he? 

Have a great rest of the week! :)

A snippet of the Prologue:


This is the springtime of our lives where the black magic roses bloom, blood red and dangerous. Their thorns weave around my lover and me, caging us in, carving their wickedness into our flesh. But we cannot give up on our love—no matter how painful—we cannot let go of who we thought we were. It’s heartless to deny yourself the love of your life—a ruby red sin to even try.

*Mmm- my fav line of the book! I hope you're already knee-deep enjoying it, and, if you've finished, I hope it was all you wished it would be. If you feel so moved please consider leaving even the briefest review!

Above all, happy reading!

I'll be back next week with brand new teasers!!!!

XOXO ~A
