UNIFIED-Cover Reveal and Blurb First Look

Hi friends!

I know some of you have been waiting for this day for a long, long time. It’s been a twisty road, but we’re finally here–UNIFIED (UNSTRUNG #3) is being released next month! Thanks for sticking with me–I know the date has been pushed more than once due to other commitments, and I’m so glad this story is almost out into the world.

UNIFIED will go up for pre-order in the next week, and I’ll post links once it does. In the meantime, let’s wrap this up and take a look at the beautiful cover Glendon at Streetlight Graphics put together:

 

Isn’t it gorgeous? And yes, Lexa will be going back into the lion’s den that is Triarch City. Want to hear a little more? Check out the back cover blurb:

Lexa Pate has been called many things: thief, artificial, lover, friend. Now, as she faces the biggest crisis of her life, she realizes there’s another title trying to define her: murderer.

After she was freed from the Quad’s clutches, Lexa thought her life would go back to, if not normal, something resembling that. Sure, the band of rebels she’s joined have ideas of freeing the world from the Quad (delusions of grandeur might be more accurate), but Lexa is reunited with the men who’ve become her ragtag family. In her new home, she’s safe, she’s surrounded by people who care for her, and Quinn is always close at hand, ready to show her how much he loves her. So why does she feel like killing him every time they’re together?

Quinn thought rescuing Lexa from the Glass House would be all he needed to find his happy ending. But Lexa’s incarceration has changed things between them, and he fears the Quad altered more about Lexa than anyone suspects. With tensions in the rebel camp rising between the humans and the artificials, Quinn knows the war will reach a boiling point soon, and he may be the only one who can stop it. But if the rebels continue to believe Lexa is dangerous, he could lose more than the war—he could lose the girl he loves.

Coming Soon…

Hi guys! My first ever New Adult title, Crazy Love, is coming out soon! How soon? Let’s ask the countdown…

 

 

This is such a fun story guys, and perfect for snowy days at home. You can’t go wrong with sexy snowboarders–or, SBXers to be exact. If you don’t know what Snowboard Cross is, and you want to see alphas on the mountain, go here.  All the cuts, the checks–you have to fight for ground in one of these races. Now, Seth Wescott wasn’t the genesis for Luke…but if I had to pick a model, there you have it! If you want to know more about Crazy Love, check out the details on Goodreads.

Quick note–I’ll be sharing the first chapter and some excerpts in my newsletter as we get closer to release. If you want some exclusive content, which includes an “Epilogue, part 2” that won’t be posted anywhere else, sign up now (on the sidebar) to be sure you’re included.

Happy New Year!

The Perfectly Imperfect Match Is Here!

Hi friends,

It’s finally here–the conclusion to the Suttonville Sentinels series. The Perfectly Imperfect Match releases today! How about this cover, y’all? It’s a scene from the book, so you’ll have to look for it…

For those of you who’ve read the series, Dylan finally get his turn in the spotlight. For those who haven’t–the books don’t have to be read in order. In The Perfectly Imperfect Match, our heroine, Lucy, is different from quiet, lovely Faith and determined, strong Alyssa. Lucy, in a word, is chaos. And that drives Dylan crazy. On top of that, she adores chickens and does needlepoint. What’s not to love? More details can be found in the blurb below. I can’t wait to hear what y’all think! Happy reading!!

(And I see you, bloggers who read the acknowledgements. Unicorns for everyone!)

Pitcher Dylan Dennings has his future all mapped out: make the minors straight out of high school, work his way up the farm system, and get called up to the majors by the time he’s twenty-three. The Plan has been his sole focus for years, and if making his dreams come true means instituting a strict ” no girls” policy, so be it.

Lucy Foster, needlepoint ninja, big sister to an aspiring pitcher, and chicken advocate, likes a little mayhem. So what if she gets lost taking her brother to baseball camp…at her own high school? The pitching coach, some hotshot high school player, obviously thinks she’s a hot mess. Too bad he’s cute, because he’s so not her type.

Problem is, they keep running into each other, and every interaction sparks hotter than the last. But with Dylan’s future on the line, he has to decide whether some rules are made to be broken…

Disclaimer: This book contains a crazy night of moonlit skinny-dipping, a combustible crush, and kisses swoony enough to unwind even the most Type A athlete.

Each book in the Suttonville Sentinels series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

New! Swinging at Love Hits Shelves Today

Greetings everyone!

I’m so excited to announce the release of Swinging at Love, book 2 in the Suttonville Sentinels series (and yes! there will be a book 3). I’ve loved this book since the first line, with Alyssa and Tristan capturing my heart over and over. They may be the most realistic couple I’ve written. Both have problems, both have determination, but they need each other to really be complete. Plus, Tristan’s mom makes the worst meatloaf in the universe. Ask around–it’s true.

Without further ado, here’s the cover and blurb. I love this cover. Red’s my favorite color, and Converse FTW! You can find the book in eBook or paperback at all major retailers. For more info, check it out on the Entangled website here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Outfielder Tristan Murrell has a problem. As the number two slugger for the Suttonville Sentinels, his team is counting on him to make their very first run at the state championship. But he has a secret—his swing has totally deserted him. As in, he can’t hit anything. He needs to fix the issue, and fast, but how?

Ballerina Alyssa Kaplan has a problem, too. The shiny new sports complex in town has left her family’s batting cage business on the verge of going under. Nailing her audition for a prestigious dance company is everything, but there’s no way she’s letting her some shiny big-box company destroy her family’s livelihood.

Tristan needs a miracle. So does Alyssa. And maybe, just maybe, Tristan’s secret weapon might be the girl of his dreams…

Disclaimer: This book contains hot, shirtless baseball players, kisses that bring a ballerina to her knees, and a lot of baseball smack-talk.

New! The Bad Boy Bargain

Greetings friends!

 

I’m so excited, and proud, to announce the release of The Bad Boy Bargain. It hits stores today, in eBook and paperback, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and other retailers. I really enjoyed writing this book, and I hope you enjoy reading it. Want to hear more? In celebration of the launch, here’s the description and a little excerpt. Enjoy!

 

bbb-1Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies’ man, fearless outfielder… Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.

Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn’t it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it’s time to let a little bad into her life.

Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer–dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer–is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, ” dating” Kyle will silence the rumors.

But Faith’s plan threatens to expose Kyle’s biggest secret of all…and that’s a risk he’s not willing to take.

Disclaimer: This book contains drop-the-book-and-fan-yourself kisses…and touches. Fall in love with a bad boy at your own risk.

 

Excerpt:

 

By the time Faith made it home, took a smoothie from Mom’s outstretched hand, and went upstairs to shower, six Snapchat notifications, all from different people, had popped up on her phone:

A sad-faced Skye: I’m so sorry about last night. I should’ve warned you. I feel awful.

An angry Piper: I’m at the mall and there’s some asinine shit coming out of Cameron’s mouth right now. Should I punch him?

A gossipy Fiona: Is it true that Cameron dumped you?

A sneering Mitchell: You as cold as Cam says?

A dumbfounded Katrina: Holly is telling everyone at the mall that she stole Cam from you because you don’t put out. Want me to dump a Slurpee in her hair?

A smirking Jackson: My car overheated. I heard you could cool it down for me. How about it, ice queen?

Tears of rage filled Faith’s eyes, especially when a new Snapchat chimed: Cameron, sending her a picture of Holly sitting in his lap at the party last night. The message read: Trading up.

She squeezed her phone in her hand. What was she going to do? She had half a mind to tell Kat to pour that Slurpee down Holly’s shirt and Piper to punch Cam in the throat. But that wouldn’t solve anything. Not at all.

No, she needed something bigger. Faith wandered to her window, to stare outside and organize her thoughts. Except, when she caught sight of the ripped, shirtless guy in her backyard, she forgot what she’d been thinking about.

“Who’s that?” she whispered, touching the glass.

His back and shoulders flexed under tanned skin. A black tattoo—was it a bird?—was on one of his shoulder blades. There was a bruise on his side, too, but she couldn’t make herself wonder about it. The guy’s dark hair was in his face as he tugged hard at a holly bush, yanking it from the ground.

Look at those arms. Faith stared, her mouth open. Who was he?

The holly bush gave way and he tipped back, dirt flying. Faint laughter drifted up through her window as he climbed to his feet with his prize, and she caught a look at his face.

She gasped. Holy crap, that was Kyle Sawyer. The stories she’d heard about him were numerous, and if a quarter were true, he was not the kind of guy she’d want to talk to. He shoplifted, vandalized buildings, drank, hung out with college students—girls. College girls. And rumor had it he ran illegal street races with his Charger.

So why did he look like he was having a blast ransacking her backyard? He had an awfully nice smile for such a bad boy.

A thought exploded in her brain—wait a minute…bad boy. Kyle was the one guy at Suttonville High who’d seen enough action to have his own lore. His exploits were darker than sin, and being with him was an instant reputation killer for any girl at Suttonville.

This was it. Kyle would be her revenge.
