On a serious note, I was challenged by the Poulin Family Florida, over on Facebook, to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and I of course accepted sans the bathing suit and ice. Instead I happily donated the requisite $100. in the name of my husband's uncle who passed a few years ago from the horrible disease. I hope good things come from this amazing donation vehicle that's swept the country and a cure is found soon.
Book news! I'm loving the reviews that are pouring in for Burning Through Gravity! And BIG thank you for no spoilers. I really appreciate that right down to the dregs of my little corroded heart. XOXO If you haven't read it, and you enjoy a little suspense with your romance, it's available now at all major ebook retailers. Paperbacks are available on Amazon!
Beautiful Illusions is done! I'm about a week behind in handing it over to my betas and editor but I blame summer for that. I really drank it down this year and enjoyed every crazy minute of it. I hope you'll enjoy Demi and Gavin's story, coming (hopefully) mid to late September!
The Dragon and the Rose! Yes, it's finally FRONT BURNER! I love living on Paragon and playing with Skyla and friends. Did I mention Marshall? Yum.
More cover reveals coming so look for those. I'm excited myself!
And thank you to all who came out to the Authors on the Coast signing this past weekend. It was amazing and fun and every single person there was kind beyond belief. I really enjoyed meeting you all! NYC (Romance Riot) is next!! See you in October!
On to the teasers!
Beautiful Illusions (Beautiful Oblivion #2)
*Can be read as a standalone.
“I think we should quit while we’re ahead.”
“Are you asking me to quit you before we ever begin?” She looks affronted, like I asked her to pluck the ears off a rabbit.
A part of me wants to laugh because the sex addict in her is still trying to get into my pants, and, believe me, the sex addict in me very much approves, but I swallow down the urge because she just touched my soul in the exact way I was hoping.
“I would never ask you to quit me, Emmy.” It’s not going to happen for me at least. There’s an urgency in me to protect her. I know for a fact, once I take a hit, I’ll never let her out of my bed.
The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
“So what’s the plan?” I pant hard, pressing myself into the peeling bark of the eucalyptus just to keep Logan’s chest from mine.
“The plan, Skyla, is to do this.” He leans in, his lips edge toward mine before he turns quickly and pulls the trigger. The shot rings throughout the island like a thunderclap, and I stagger forward spotting a body in the field.
“You killed him.” My hand claws at my chest. I can’t breathe.
“I’ve always been a damn good shot.”
Enjoy the week! Happy reading!
