The Tuesday tease + book news!

It’s Tuesday! I’m giddy because I had a great week editing Celestra Forever After. I’m on track to send the ENTIRE book to my editor on Thursday! *squee* (Heads up, Sarah!)

Quick news: Someone to Love is still only $2 for a few more days! Make sure to pick up a copy before my publisher raises the price again! Quick, go and get one! I’ll wait...
Happy reading!

Would you like to listen to the audiobook for Someone Like You? Just click here and listen to the first 10 minutes of the book! Happy listening!

Since Celestra Forever After is moving right on schedule, if all goes well with my editor and betas, we should have a mid to late March release date! This is a new series. It takes place after the young adult Celestra series has been completed. It’s structured so that new readers can pick it up and not feel totally lost. Hopefully soon I’ll have a cover reveal! Next week-ish???

On to the teaser!


*Logan and Coop, watching Wes from a distance.

“He’s here, huh?”
“Apparently, so. It’s giving Laken some anxiety, but she’s a strong girl. I’m not too worried. I told her if he tries something, to feel free to invert his jewels and show him who’s in charge. Hell, I might knock his balls in myself.” Coop’s brows peak as two other guys dressed in black suits approach Wes. “There’s an underground society the frats are forever spinning urban legends about—The Blood of the Dragon. It wouldn’t surprise me if Wes is campaigning. And if he gives them enough cash, he’ll be running it in a week.”
“What the hell would he want with a bunch of college goofs? He’s a little busy culling the dross from the Counts, isn’t he?”
“Who knows, maybe he’s scouting new recruits.”
 Shit. “Human recruits.”

*Hope you enjoyed! It won't be long now!

Don't forget Sugar Kisses it out! Roxy is full of attitude and Cole thinks he's all that. But they can't stay away from those late night Sugar Kisses!

Cover reveal: Whiskey Kisses!!!

Whiskey Kisses (3:AM Kisses Book 4) Coming summer 2014!

This book can be read as a standalone

27 year-old Izzy Sawyer has a secret, and it’s turned her life upside down. She believes she’s the last person on earth who deserves a happily-ever-after.

22 year-old bartender Holt Edwards has a secret of his own that cost him far more than he ever bargained for. And when it comes to love, he doesn’t believe in fairytale endings.

Izzy is amassing social phobias as quickly as she is cats. She’s notoriously incapable of making a decision, and her love life has yet to take off because of it. When her sister offers to set her up on a series of blind dates, Izzy breaks her bad habit of indecisiveness and agrees to the idea—after all, she’s already on the brink of insanity.

Holt has worshiped Izzy from afar for as long as he can remember, and now that her sister has talked her into a string of blind dates he’s generously offered to help Izzy navigate the battlefield of romance.

Things get heated when Holt takes his “coaching” endeavors to a physical level, and Izzy is blindsided when she discovers she’s falling hard for someone five years her junior. Izzy wants nothing more than to forget the world and drink down Holt Edwards and his late night Whiskey Kisses.

Izzy is starting to think that happily ever after doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
Holt is starting to rethink his stance on fairytale endings—but secrets are exposed, and worlds are blown apart—the only thing Holt and Izzy have left when the dust settles is each other. Once they get a good look at who they truly are, will they help each other heal or repel and run for safety?

*I'm so excited to get this book to you! Holt is Bryson's twin brother and he is hawt. 

Have a great weekend!

On to the teaser!

New Adult  17+
*Skyla with her man (name omitted from text to prevent spoilers).

“I appreciate that.” I rub my fingers over his cheeks. He’s growing his stubble out, and he looks that much more adorable. “You’re just so damn hot. Once you get out on that field next Friday night every girl on Host will want to bed you.” I dip my hand up his T-shirt and lean in to whisper. “Including this girl.” My cheeks fill with heat, and I have to look away a second.
“You’re the only girl I want even close to my bed.” He dots my lips with a kiss and scrapes his rough stubble over my cheek.

*Melts* I hope you all have a fab rest of the week!
Someone to Love is on sale! I don’t know how long it will last but if you haven’t picked up a copy it’s a great time to do it!

Sugar Kisses is LIVE!!! + Teasers

(The link to last weeks blog hop is here!)

Sugar Kisses (3:AM Kisses 3) is LIVE!!!

Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, iTunes

*This novel can be read as a stand alone*

Roxy and Cole have been unleashed into the world! I'm thrilled to give you another part of the 3:AM Kisses story.

A little about the book:

Roxy Capwell couldn’t be more miserable. She just had her heart stomped on by her cheating boyfriend, and the last thing she’s looking for is love. She hates men.
Cole Brighton couldn’t be happier. He’s a player of the highest order, there’s not a girl at Whitney Briggs University that he can’t tag and bag. He loves the ladies.
Roxy’s dream is to own and operate her own bakery one day, but with no oven in her dorm, and a lucrative baking competition on the horizon, she agrees to move in with her best friend’s brother, the obnoxious, womanizing, Cole Brighton.
Between the heavenly scent of baked goods, and Roxy’s perfect body strutting around the apartment, Cole can’t think straight. So when Roxy’s ex starts sniffing around again, Cole volunteers to play the part of her new boy-toy and things get heated both in and out of the kitchen.
Roxy discovers she might not hate every man on the planet, and Cole discovers nothing tastes better than Roxy and her late night SUGAR KISSES.
Roxy is a ball of stress and anger.
Cole is all ego and sex.
Their attraction is unstoppable.
And when their bodies collide—its combustible.

Other book news: Celestra Forever After has morphed a tad bigger than I anticipated (typical Skyla), but that's partially my fault since I find Paragon a nice place to visit. Edits should start on Thursday—yay! And they should move quickly on my end so that my editor and betas can get into the manuscript and help me whip it into shape. Yay again!

On to the teaser:

New Adult  17+
(Skyla with Marshall)

“Know this.” Marshall leans in until I can feel his breath warming me. “The fruit of the rose family is often lethal. It will certainly do this world in.”
“You’re talking in riddles.” My gaze falls out the window at that horrific dragon painted across the building with his terrifying grimace. His ruby eyes shimmer right through the fog with an eerie incandescent glow.
“Does the dragon fit into this—Omen?” I test his name on my lips. I’ve hated it all along. It feels evil, nefarious.
“Indeed he does.” Marshall shoulders up next to me and fixes his gaze on the creature’s awful countenance. He hones in his hatred and glares at the monstrosity as if it were a person.
The earth quakes, a roar erupts from the sky as the belly of those tar-colored clouds rip open and a deluge of rain falls over the campus as if God himself were trying to soothe an open wound.

Enjoy the week! Hope you have fun with Roxy and Cole!
