5 Days, 5 Gift Cards Giveaway: Day Four

One of the best things about diving back into Leila and Jacob's world is the chance to create new, vivid characters that you guys will love (or love to hate ;). I think I'm pretty sure I know which camp Jessica Lenoir will fall into lol.

Here's an excerpt from The Billionaire's Wife (Part One) where Leila meets Jessica for the first time!

(P.S.: The Billionaire's Wife (Part One) will be live tomorrow. Yay!!! :)



"Are you Leila?"
I spun on my heels, trying to keep my annoyance on its intended target. Like Natasha who had a penchant for just letting people stroll into my office.
But when I faced Jessica Lenoir, I didn't feel remotely guilty for the scowl on my face. It went perfectly with the haughty expression on hers. I'd been expecting the woman from the gossip columns; bleary eyed, still dressed in her wrinkled dress from the night before, smudged makeup, teetering all over the place because she was still a little drunk.
The woman before me looked like she wouldn't just dominate a boardroom, but she'd chew it up and spit it out. She wore a blood red blazer with a ivory blouse beneath and tailored black slacks. Her heels knocked against the hardwood floor as she made herself at home, behind my desk.
She tossed a curtain of deep brown hair, jade green eyes cutting me off at the knees until I felt two feet tall. "So I'm here. Now what?"

5 Days, 5 Gift Cards Giveaway: Day Three

Originally, today's post was going to be all about your fave Jacob scene from the His Submissive series, but as I was rereading the His Sub series, I realized that one of my fave scenes doesn't even involve Jacob lol (not directly anyway). Leila Montgomery vs. Rachel Laraby, round one!


Excerpt From The Billionaire's Touch:

My chair creaking backward was met by a chorus of others as everyone's attention turned to the front. We all gawked at the statuesque woman at the hostess desk.
Rachel Laraby—America's Sweetheart since she played a plucky high school dropout alongside George Clooney. From there, it was a string of romantic comedies and a sprinkle of indie films to maintain her street credit among the critics.
But it wasn’t all red carpets and Oscars for Rachel. At twenty-six, she'd been in and out of rehab three, no, four times. Unlike most celebrities that never fully recovered in the public eye, after each stint, Rachel regained the hearts and minds of anyone that set their eyes on her.
It made sense. She was the perfect Hollywood star with impossibly perfect bone structure, paired with bright green eyes, and a smile photogenic enough to sell whatever it was tacked on to. Her ebony colored hair was always glossy with the right amount of body. Her curves made her relatable, but she was thin enough that she could wear the hell out of anything. Every woman wanted to be her, and every man wanted to take her to bed.
And she was our client.
I glanced back at Allegra, the stars in my eyes wearing off and confusion setting in. "Was there a meeting tonight?" I looked down at my outfit. "I can't meet Rachel Laraby wearing this."
"There is no meeting," Allegra said warily. "Only trouble."
"Trouble?” I said, even more confused. “What do you--"
"Allegra De Luca!" If the flashes of cameras and phones intensifying around us were no indication, there was no mistaking Rachel's signature Southern drawl. "If you don't stand up so I can hug your neck!"
I'd seen the real thing enough to know the smile Allegra slathered on as she rose to her feet was far from genuine.
"Rachel," she said with an uncomfortable chuckle. "I didn't think we'd be seeing you until tomorrow morning."
Rachel waved a manicured hand, dismissing that whole notion. "I just had to come and say hello to my favorite woman in Venice!" She spun in a circle and swiped a nearby chair, managing to squeeze the wicker thing between the two of us and completely ignore my existence. Allegra flashed me an apologetic smile. When Rachel lowered her lean frame into the seat, with no intention of saying hello, Allegra began the pleasantries.
"Rachel," she started. "This is--"
"Any friend of Al's is a friend of mine!" Rachel cast a phony smile at me before she flipped her hair and leaned in toward Allegra. "I wanted to ask you about Jacob's new assistant. He's been keeping it so quiet, so she must be something special."
"Allow me to introduce Leila Montgomery," Allegra said with a smug glimmer in her eye. "Jacob's lovely new assistant."
Rachel turned her head so hard I was surprised she didn't get whiplash. She inspected me slowly and from the snort that fell from her lips, I came up wanting.
"You can't be serious." She jutted a finger in my face, literally inches from my nose. "She's the new assistant?"
I felt anger sparking all over my body, but I tried to breathe through it. Maybe she didn't mean it as insulting as it came out.
"Yes," I said placidly. "I'm the new assistant."
"Is this some sort of joke?" She gave me a sly smile. "Am I being Punk'd?"
"Get your hand out of my face," I growled, nostrils flaring.

5 Days, 5 Gift Cards Giveaway: Day Two

Hola!

Today's post features Leila turning the table on Jacob...was definitely a very fun scene to write. ;)

Excerpt from The Billionaire's Wife (Part One):



I sank to my knees, hands reaching for his belt. His eyes were flashing--I was being bold--but they didn't flash with condemnation. He was thrilled, riveted; like he was watching me change before him. 
I vibrated from the inside out when he let out a deep, guttural moan as I stroked him, the fabric barely able to contain his arousal. I unzipped his fly and reached in, my hand wrapping around his bulging shaft. 
I drew closer. Mouth close enough to touch. Tongue close enough to lick. But I just stared up at him in awe. My husband, my everything, my Dom...a slave to my touch.

Thursday, July 24, 2014

A little something...

If you're enjoying the Beautiful Surrender series, you're (hopefully) going to love this tidbit of news.

I fully intended for Waiting for Forever (Beautiful Surrender, Part Four) to be the final installment in the Beautiful Surrender series, but as I've written and explored Logan and Melissa's romance, there's still so much story to tell. So I'm splitting part four into two pieces. This means there will be five parts in total of the Beautiful Surrender series. Let me know if you have any questions!

****

As far as what's coming up before we dive back into Logan and Melissa, I'll be releasing Stolen, the His Dark Lessons prequel on August 8!

Stolen touches on some pretty dark stuff, but I'm looking forward to showing you how Cass and Chance met and the events that led up to their breakup. Fair warning--Stolen has no HEA, but spoiler alert--you'll have to read the His Dark Lessons series if happily ever afters are your cup of tea.  :)

That's all for now. Thanks for reading and supporting me. I appreciate every single one of you. <3

Waiting For Us Excerpt!

Here's a sneak peek from Waiting For Us (Beautiful Surrender, Part Three), released July 11, 2014.

He waited for the blow to land. Waited for me to snap, 'Fuck this' and abandon ship. It was shameful, but that thought had buzzed through my mind. After all, what did I really know about this man? 
Logan Mason--hot as hell, fingers that felt like heaven, and a cock that made me wonder how I ever came without it inside me. Worth more money than I could wrap my mind around. And he had a celebrity girlfriend who apparently thought it was no biggie just to show up at his house.
A celebrity girlfriend that was pregnant, and Logan was the father.
That alone should have made me break out in a cold sweat and get the eff out of dodge, but my heart never did have much sense. Or maybe I was in shock. My mind seemed to be moving at lightning speed, but my body was stuck on pause. 
Father.

Logan's gonna be a father.

****

I hope yall had a great fourth of July! Looking forward to Release Week fun-ness. <3

Whisper is Now Available!



Fresh off the success of her teen drama TV series Carolina, California, movie executives want her to headline their blockbusters, and record executives are vying for the chance to release her first solo studio album. And then Mia starred in three movies that took her from household name to household joke.

Mia made more mistakes than she can count, turning to anything that can numb her pain. What the world doesn't know is that her mother is much worse than any pill she swallowed. Despite her best efforts, Mia can't quiet the screech of her past, nor the swan song of her waning fame.

Until she meets him.

Liam Walker knows all too well what it's like to fall from grace. He's a soulful rocker with a one-hit wonder under his belt, but he still believes in love--and he believes in Mia. He doesn't know how to save what's left of his career, but he knows that they belong together. He breathes for her.

If only she would let him in...

Whisper is a spin off story from the best-selling His Submissive series. Whisper is a New Adult (NA) romance.

Whisper is available at the following retailers:
Amazon
Barnes and Noble
Smashwords

And if you haven't grabbed your copy of It's In His Kiss, it's now available exclusively at Amazon. (p.s.: and that's definitely not the last time you'll see Melissa and Logan--Waiting For Me-part 2, will be out on May 23! And it'll be from Logan's POV ;) More info on their series coming soon!!)

Happenings! And Releases!

So...April is a pretty jam packed month--and I can't wait to share all the awesomeness with you guys.

First, there's the release of the It's In His Kiss boxed set.

So thrilled to be part of this boxed set! My short story is featuring two brand spanking new characters (and hopefully, a new Dom for you to fall madly in love/lust with!)

Here's the description of my story, Waiting For You:

In “Waiting for You,” Melissa Foster’s dream getaway to Santa Cruz becomes a solo trip after her boyfriend dumps her. Who would have guessed that wealthy entrepreneur Logan Mason would be part of her vacation package?

My ARC team has had overwhelmingly positive things to say about the story and the possibility for a His Submissive treatment (continuing the story as a serial/installment release), so I can't wait to hear what yall think!

It's In His Kiss is available exclusively at Amazon. Pick up your copy here.

****

Whisper!

When I first thought up Mia Kent's story, I knew I wanted to eventually dive in and explore what it was like to grow up in the public eye. Whisper picks up after Mia Kent's once superstar career has cooled off...she's more known for partying than talent--but she wants to change. And kick her overbearing mother to the curb.
The last thing she was looking for was love...but she connects with Liam, who also knows all too well what it's like to be famous--and have it all ripped away.

Whisper will be released April 4.

Upcoming Releases and Updates!

I wanted to pop in and give y'all some updates on some upcoming releases and happenings that are coming up in the next few weeks.


Whisper is coming soon!



When I created Mia Kent, I was inspired by a combo of child stars gone bad and binge watching Dance Moms and Toddlers and Tiaras. I wondered about the little girls beneath all the glitter and screaming lights and how they really coped with the pressure.

I hinted in the His Submissive series that Mia's mother was toxic, and you'll find out just how much in Whisper--and how terrified Mia is that her sister is also on the path toward fame at any cost, thanks to Mommy Dearest. All Mia has is her career and regret--until she meets Liam.

Whisper will be released April 4.


I'm also doing a book blitz with Xpresso Book Tours. If you have a blog and want to participate, check out the link here. Or you can just follow me on tour and enter to win stuff. :) I'm giving away a bunch of Amazon gift cards, so stay tuned for details!

It's In His Kiss Boxed Set


Super excited about a box set I'm part of! The box set includes 6 short stories, all vacation themed.

Six Authors, Six Delicious Vacation Romances

Going on vacation never felt so good! Six steamy stories, six sexy men to take you away from it all and sweep you off your feet. Each sweet and spicy novella is approximately 10,000 words (35 pages) and is available exclusively in this collection. Your vacation getaways include:

Ashley Blake: In “Kisses on Fire” (Amazing Love #2.5), the last thing broken-hearted Abby Hunter is looking for is a vacation romance with sexy, mysterious Zane Andrews—until she finds the courage to stop running and start healing.

Ava Claire: In “Waiting for You,” Melissa Foster’s dream getaway to Santa Cruz becomes a solo trip after her boyfriend dumps her. Who would have guessed that wealthy entrepreneur Logan Mason would be part of her vacation package?

News on Stolen

I have some not-so-great news...

I've been struggling with this for the past couple of days, but I've come to a hard decision regarding Stolen, the prequel to His Dark Lessons. I'm shelving the book until further notice.

I'd like to give you some background. When I first had the idea of Chance and Cass' story, I was writing from a place of experience. No, I haven't had any affairs with my sexy professors, but once upon a time, I was cheated on. Now that I think back, maybe that's why Before You Go was such an exhilarating book to write, and the His Dark Lessons series as well. The stories were about learning from mistakes, forgiveness, and keeping a hopeful eye to the future.

Writing Stolen has been a very emotional experience, and not in a good way. It's about the time leading up to Cass and Chances breakup, when she walks in on him with someone else. As I've gone through the book myself and with my editor, it is unfortunately just not up to par. Something is missing. I don't know if it's because I'm in such a good place emotionally or because I just finished a story in the His Submissive world and Jacob and Cade make me feel all kinds of awesome, but Stolen just is missing something. I can't put my finger on it, and it has been driving me crazy because the book is due out--and you guys deserve nothing but the best.

That being said, I've decided to put Stolen back on the shelf until further notice. I apologize to those that were looking forward to more time with Chance and Cass, but I can't give them to you right now. :(

Happy Valentine's Day--and a Cover Reveal!


Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I plan on stuffing my face with chocolate and binge watching House of Cards with my hubby. What are you doing to celebrate V-day?

*

I usually wait to share my covers closer to the release date, but I am so in love with the cover Sarah from Okay Creations did that I can't wait any longer!

Here's the cover for Mia Kent's story, Whisper!




Mia Kent lives a charmed, tortured life. 

Fresh off the success of her teen drama TV series Carolina, California, movie executives want her to headline their blockbusters, and record executives are vying for the chance to release her first solo studio album.

When Mia turns eighteen, she spreads her wings--and makes more mistakes than she can count. What the world doesn't know is that her mother is much worse than any drug she could shoot into her veins, and despite her best efforts, Mia can't quiet the screech of her past nor the cacophony of fame.

Until she meets him.

Liam Walker knows all too well what it's like to fall from grace. A soulful rocker with a one-hit wonder under his belt, he believes in love--and he believes in Mia. He doesn't know how to save what's left of his career, but he knows that they belong together. He breathes for her.

If only she would let him in...

Whisper will be released March 28!
