The Tuesday Tease!

Short and sweet!

Rock Candy Kisses releases on Valentine's Day! (Most likely a day before if all vendors comply) I'm very excited to get Annie's story to you! 

Book news! Velvet Kisses is now in edits! (Small victory!) And I'll have two cover reveals coming up, hopefully next week! One for Velvet Kisses and one for Beautiful Elixir! The Serpentine Butterfly shouldn't be too far behind. 

Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses 5)
Annie’s POV

“Annie”—he shakes his head just barely as he examines me—“you are so beautiful.”

My gaze drops down his bare chest. Blake has wide set shoulders like a linebacker. His abs alone are enough to hold my attention for hours. I trace my finger from his neck to his rock hard stomach, dripping down slow as six weeks.

See you next week!

The Tuesday tease

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a fantastic start. I've been moving and shaking with Rock Candy Kisses (edits) and the next book in the Kisses series, Velvet Kisses (writing). I think after that I'll head to a different series, most likely finishing out a few that I've already started such as the Beautiful Oblivion series, or the Burning Through Gravity series. Meanwhile, I'll be penning The Serpentine Butterfly in tandem to whatever I'm writing at the time. Skyla demands I get my @$$ back to that island and I totally get it. 

On to the teaser!

Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses 5) *Releases Valentine's Day if not sooner!
Blake’s POV (slow dancing at the Black Bear)

“You want to get out of here?” I ask Annie, mouthing the words slowly, as she digs her fingers into my ribs.
Hers eyes widen just past my shoulder, and I turn to find the angry brother brigade marching my way.
“What’s going on?” Holt expands his chest like he’s looking for a fight. He is. I’m sure my face looks like a pretty good target. I have no doubt the disagreements we have about me seeing Annie will be settled with our fists. It’s just a matter of where and when.
Annie signs something over to them. I’ve spent hours glued to the Internet trying to figure out how to sign, but, she’s quick, and I’m betting I can guess the point she’s trying to get across simply from the angry glint in her eye.

“Is that so?” He laughs as he looks to me. “Annie says you two are leaving. Just where do you think you’re taking my sister?”

*(Side note: I just love the way Bryson and Holt protect Annie!)

Enjoy the week!

The Tuesday Tease!

Happy Tuesday all!

Things are moving quickly for Rock Candy Kisses! The release date is still set as Valentine's Day but if it gets pushed forward I will let you know!

On to the teaser! 

Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses 5)
Blake’s POV

“Do you still love me?” I tease.
She pinches her fingers an inch apart and I close my eyes, a dry laugh buried in my chest.
“I love you,” I say it crisp and clear, and it shreds me that she’ll never hear it.

*I really am very excited to get Annie's story out there. It's a story that has totally seeped its way into my heart and I hope it will yours too! 

Until next week! XOXO

The Tuesday Tease

Welcome to the New Year! It's Tuesday! I hope you're all keeping warm and toasty. I'm tucked up in the mountains surrounded by sparkling white snow and baby it's cold outside!

Book news! I'm almost ready to kick Rock Candy Kisses to my editor. Stubbornly I want to go over it one more time. I really enjoyed hanging out with Annie. For those of you who have read the 3:AM Kisses series, she's Bryson and Holt's sister. Annie is profoundly deaf so this story has been near and dear to me from the beginning since we struggle with various stages of hearing loss in my family. I hope you'll embrace her story and even love it!

Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses #5) Release date 2-14-15 or sooner!

(Annie and Blake together. Bold signifies a text or a note written out on her phone. Annie can, more or less, read lips proficiently.)

“Are you going to let me kiss you?” he says the words slowly, and I have to laugh because I realize he desperately wanted me to understand them.
I shake my head.
“Why not?” He winces, genuinely perplexed. I’m pretty sure Blake Daniels isn’t too familiar with the word no.
I pull back and dive into my phone just trying to get my bearings. Because I hardly know you. You’re a perfect stranger, remember? I try to ignore the fact this perfect stranger has his arm wrapped around my shoulder.
He motions for my phone and I slip it into his hand. You drove here with me—alone. Blake holds back the grin blooming on his face as he shows me the screen. If anything I’ve amused him. 
I never said I was smart.
“You’re smart.” Blake runs his hand through my hair before typing into my phone again. You want it to be special—with the right person—memorable.
Which romance taught you that? I ask trying desperately not to flirt. But I'm flirting and I don't care how desperate it comes across.  

“This one.” He tucks his fingers to his heart. “I want that for you, too.”

Have a great rest of the week!

And we have paperbacks!!!! Amazon: http://hyperurl.co/2cu53j

The Tuesday Tease

It's Tuesday (and it totally doesn't feel like it, thank you Christmas) I called Monday, Sunday twice. But timewarp aside, we've arrived! 
    Thank you all sooo much for continuing to support The Dragon and the Rose! I've received dozens of emails and Facebook messages about the book, and I wanted to thank all of you for keeping your reviews spoiler free! I really can't thank you enough for that! I'll try to work extra hard to get The Serpentine Butterfly (Celestra Forever After 3) out early to you. So much more is still to happen on that crazy island. (The paperback should be available today or tomorrow. It's still aggregating into the system. I'll update when it goes live).

On with the teaser: 

Rock Candy Kisses (3:AM Kisses 5) *Annie's story! Yay!

*release date is officially slated for Valentine's Day—or sooner if I can swing it.

Blake's point of view, chasing down Annie outside of the Black Bear after his band played.

“Hey"—I pant—"did I do something wrong?” She doesn’t look up, just keeps texting a mile a minute. “I mean, I did sort of save your life today. I would think that would at least warrant a thank you.” A sheepish smile takes over my face. I don’t really want or need a thank you. And if that’s the best I’ve got I’m f*cked. Half the girls in there were throwing their underwear at me and this one won’t acknowledge my existence—ironic since she’s the only one I’d gladly take a pair of panties from.
She flashes her phone at me. Her face glows from the light, perfect and beautiful like an angel, and I don’t want to take my eyes off hers. Reluctantly I glance at the phone.
Thank you for helping me out this morning. I’m sorry if I seemed rude. I was a little thrown off. My name is Annie, and I’m deaf.

The smile glides off my face without meaning to. She swallows hard with a slight look of hurt as she tries to head back into the bar.

***I'm so super excited to bring Annie's story to you at last. I hope you'll fall in love with her and Blake as much as I have. 

Have a great rest of the week and have a safe and Happy New Year!!!
