At eighteen, Lorelei Pratchett couldn’t wait to get out of her hometown. Twelve years later, her Hollywood dreams have fizzled and she’s back—temporarily, she thinks. Though she throws herself into saving the old theater and starting a baking business, small towns have long memories, and Lorelei’s wild past still haunts her. It doesn’t help that her ex-boyfriend, Spencer Boyd, is even hotter, smarter, and more distracting than before.

The fiery Lorelei that Spencer knew years ago may have become closed off and cautious, but their chemistry hasn’t faded one bit. Losing her a second time is unthinkable to him, yet Lorelei is convinced she doesn’t belong in Ardent Springs. Somehow, Spencer needs to show her that everything she needs is right here: family, friendship, new beginnings…and a man who’s never stopped loving her.

Warm, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny, His First and Last is an irresistible story of first love and second chances.

And don’t forget to join the Facebook party tomorrow when Rhenna Morgan, Sarah Hegger, and I throw a rip-roaring bash to celebrate the launch of each of our new series. We have prizes and an abundance of HAWT men lined up just for you. Don’t miss out! Did I mention we’re giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky winner?? We are! Enter now through Rafflecopter.

COVER REVEAL – HIS FIRST AND LAST is a beauty!

on January 20, 2015

Though it seems like MORE TO GIVE, the final installment in my Anchor Island Series, just released, it’s already time to gear up for the next step in my writing journey.

April 21st is the release date for the first in my new Ardent Springs Series, titled HIS FIRST AND LAST. And today I am happy to be celebrating the exclusive cover reveal. So, without further ado, here it is!

Isn’t it beautiful? (I might be a little biased.) Here’s the back cover summary for the book…

HIS FIRST AND LAST is available for pre-order now, so come April 21st, it’ll pop up on your Kindle, ready to read. I’m so excited for this series, and can’t wait to hear what readers think of Lorelei, Spencer, and the southern charm of Ardent Springs.

Happy First Monday of the Year!

on January 5, 2015

Welcome to 2015!

How is the new year treating you so far? I know one person it’s treating really well. And that would be…. Julie Bonafice! Julie is the lucky winner of the Kindle Fire. Congratulations and I will be in touch, Miss Julie.

So what’s next? Well, for me, a lot of work. Which means my online time gets cut way back for the next 12 weeks. Unfortunately, these books don’t write themselves. (But oh how awesome it would be if they did.)

Once upon a time

The good news is that we’re only 14 weeks away from the release of HIS FIRST AND LAST, the first in my Ardent Springs series. I should be sharing the cover soon, and then there will be reviews coming in and maybe some early copies up for grabs. That new release train will leave the station before we know it, but first, I have to write the next one.

My goal is to still check in here every Monday, and share fun stuff on social media as much as I can. I cleaned up my book shelves a few days ago and realized I have a ridiculous number of copies of MEANT TO BE and UP TO THE CHALLENGE. That means you never know when I might give some away. (Yes, that’s a hint. Keep an eye on my Facebook page!)

The new year brings a new start. May 2015 be the year we all kick some butt!

The Gift of Giving

on December 22, 2014

Another Monday in December means another giveaway, but first, the winner of the Vera Bradley tote bag is Linda Lioi Lubbert! Congratulations, Linda. I will be in touch!

Now onto the new prize. This week it’s all about anchors and time. Thanks to the Anchor Island series, the anchor has invaded my life, landing on my clothes and walls, and now it could land on your wrist.

This week, I’m giving away a fabulous anchor themed watch to one lucky commenter, and I’m throwing in an elegant book-themed trinket box along with it. 2014 has been an amazing year for me, and much of that is due to all of you who have read my books. I’m so enjoying giving a little back.

And speaking of giving back, this week we’re going to be philanthropists. To be entered in the contest, leave a comment naming your favorite charities. Include a brief description and even a link if you’d like. Let’s bring attention to some worthy causes during this week of giving.

The contest is for US residents only, and closes Saturday, December 27th, 2014 at midnight. But anyone is welcome to share the charity they believe in.

Don’t forget to make sure you’re entered on the Rafflecopter widget after you comment in order to have your name in the drawing for the prize.

Now one quick note. I’m sending out a special Christmas newsletter this week featuring the opening scene of HIS FIRST AND LAST, the first book in my new Ardent Springs series releasing in April 2015. Here’s the blurb for the book:

At eighteen, Lorelei Pratchett couldn’t wait to get out of her hometown. Twelve years later, her Hollywood dreams have fizzled and she’s back—temporarily, she thinks. Though she throws herself into saving the old theater and starting a baking business, small towns have long memories, and Lorelei’s wild past still haunts her. It doesn’t help that her ex-boyfriend, Spencer Boyd, is even hotter, smarter, and more distracting than before.

Losing her a second time is unthinkable to him, yet Lorelei is convinced she doesn’t belong in Ardent Springs. Somehow, Spencer needs to show her that everything she needs is right here: family, friendship, new beginnings…and a man who’s never stopped loving her.

Warm, sexy, and laugh-out-loud funny, His First and Last is an irresistible story of first love and second chances.
