New Release!!

I hope yall had a great Xmas and got everything on your wishlist! I love the holidays but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy that Santa has come and gone.

Things have been pretty crazy in my neck of the woods so I had to push the next installment in the His Dark Lessons series back a day or two, but color me surprised...Amazon approved The Teacher in record time!

Cassandra Woods is in trouble. Now that her ex, Dr. Chance Crawford, is back in town, holding onto her anger over his betrayal is becoming increasingly difficult--and keeping her hands to herself impossible.

But even though sparks fly whenever they're near, Chance wants more than her body...he wants her forgiveness. Can Cassandra truly forgive him for what he did or are the sins of the past impossible to overcome? 

Part Two was hella fun to really get a sense of Cassandra struggling with whether she should start over with Chance. While this series it totes different from His Submissive, the steamy bits are just as titillating and the emotions just as visceral. When I began plotting out the story, I started with a question:
What would you do if your SO came home and told you they thought they were dominant?

Sure, bdsm seems hella sexy in a post 50SOG world, but I think in reality it would be a lot more complicated and I'm trying to explore that in this series.

You can swipe your copy of The Teacher at the following online retailers:

Barnes and Noble

And the paperback winners are....

Becs (entry number 67) and Samantha (entry number 80)!!!

Please email your address to avaclairewrites[at]gmail[dot]com so I can fill your mailbox with a shiny autographed copy of the His Submissive Paperback! (and if you want me to sign it something specific and/or just my name, let me know that in the email as well)

A huge thanks to everyone that participated. Your comments, tweets/RT, and general awesomeness is the best darn xmas gift an author could hope for. And that's why I also have a bit of news...

I am working on a sequel to Jacob and Leila's story!

I had some serious Stephenie Meyer action going on...I just couldn't get Jacob and Leila out of my head. They were haunting my dreams with their what if's and desire to bring readers back into their world, so I figured it was time to sit back down and consider a sequel. Well I came, I considered, and I decided that a sequel *needed* to happen.

As far as the His Dark Lessons series goes, I'm releasing part two in the next week or so but I'm tabling part 3 until after I release the first installment in the Jacob/Leila sequel....and I'm estimating that part one will be released late January/early Feb.

Xmas, writing, and proofing=radio silence for a little longer than usual, just so you guys know--but I will update as soon and as often possible!

Merry Xmas and a happy new year, yall!
