Release Day Countdown: NAVY SEAL PROMISE!

15 Sep

Dear Reader,

We’re less than a month away from the release of Navy SEAL Promise! This is my fifth book with Harlequin Superromance and the first second-generational story in my Fairhope, Alabama series. With a Navy SEAL hero and an aviatrix heroine, this book was a blast to write! I enjoyed every moment of bringing Kyle and Harmony to life and now I’m so pleased to share them with you!

Navy SEAL Promise

October 2017

 

He made a promise he intends to keep…

Harmony Savitt is off-limits for navy SEAL Kyle Bracken. Not only is she his best friend’s little sister, she’s also a single mother and the widow of a fellow SEAL killed in action. This soldier needs to keep his distance. But something between them has changed…

Despite the new complicated feelings he has for Harmony, when his family comes under attack, there’s no one Kyle trusts more than her to help him get answers. When that threat extends to her and her daughter, though, he vows to protect them…even if it means putting his own heart on the line.

Preorder Navy SEAL Promise today for just $4.49! The mass market paperback edition is available at select retailers like Harlequin and Amazon. And look for more info on my sixth and final book with Superromance, coming soon!

About Superromance!

22 May

DWEBSITEear Reader,

 

So I took a break from social media to mull over the news last week from the Harlequin beehive that the line I’ve been actively writing for for 3 years – Superromance – will soon be discontinued. I’d like to acknowledge, too, the other series’ that will be ending in 2018. Those include Love Inspired Historical, Harlequin Western, Kimani Romance, and Harlequin Nocturne. It’s difficult enough having to swallow Superromance’s fate. I have a favorites shelf dedicated solely to Harlequin novels, novelettes, and anthologies. As a reader, these were some of my favorite series. Jillian Hart’s Homespun Bride, a Love Inspired Historical, remains one of my favorite romance novels of all time. I think of the noteworthy authors who got their starts in these lines and the talented writers and editors who remain and I share other authors and readers’ feelings of sadness and disappointment.

 

However, after reading many readers’ reactions to the news, I wanted to offer a big silver lining. None of these lines will be ending until mid to late 2018. That means there are plenty more books to read from each. Superromance, Harlequin Western and Love Inspired Historical won’t be discontinued until June 2018 with Kimani Press and Harlequin Nocturne to follow in December 2018. Superromance publishes 4 books a month. If I’m doing my math correctly, that means between now and then, 52 Superromance novels will be published, including 2 of my own. I recently completed edits on my 5th Superromance novel, Navy SEAL Promise, which will be published in October this year and am busy writing my 6th and final book of the series. My Superromance editor informed me last week that it will be published in May 2018.

 

I speak as both a Harlequin author and reader. If you love these lines like I know many of you do, support the authors as well as the editors. Buy as many of them as you can. These five series alone offer wonderful range under the romance umbrella. There’s something for everyone and they’re affordable. As a reader, you can’t go wrong. As an author, I cannot be more proud to call myself a member of the Superromance family.

 

Happy reading!

WOOING THE WEDDING PLANNER on sale now!

1 Jan

Happy New Year! I’m thrilled to say that Wooing the Wedding Planner is now available for your reading pleasure wherever ebooks are sold as well as in mass market paperback through Harlequin

ctoarciwyaaiq60

No more wedding marches for her! 

Wedding planner Roxie Honeycutt can make happy-ever-after come true for anyone except herself. Freshly divorced and done with love, she’s okay with watching clients walk down the aisle. What’s not okay? Sharing a charming Victorian house with accountant Byron Strong. He’s frustratingly sexy and determined to keep her confused. 

Roxie thought Byron’s expertise was numbers, yet somehow he sees her for who she really is. Somehow he understands the hurt she hides behind a trademark smile. Suddenly romance is tempting again, even if it means risking another heartbreak.

I thoroughly enjoyed writing this book. It’s been so fun watching Byron and Roxie drive each other crazy and now I get to share it with you! I’m taking them both for a virtual book tour spin in February just in time for Valentine’s Day, but you can ring in the new year and be one of the first to read their story today! Just visit the BOOKS page, Harlequin, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo. To add the book to your To-Be-Read pile, visit Wooing the Wedding Planner’s Goodreads page.

Because we’re fresh off fireworks and Roxie and Byron have yet to finish their celebratory champagne, we’ll leave you with an exclusive excerpt from Wooing the Wedding Planner. Cheers and enjoy!

What was wrong with the old Roxie?”

His words stuck with her. And his kiss.

It was difficult to forget a kiss like that, especially coming from someone…well, someone like Byron. Roxie had spent more time than she’d like to admit trying not to think about the kiss – about how sweet it was. She’d forgotten kisses could be so sweet. She’d tried extra hard to forget how his lips had lingered. And how in lingering he’d awakened starbursts inside her. Starbursts of eternity.

She frowned deeply. Being touched…it had been so long since she had really been touched. The hollowness in her had turned into a resounding ache, and for a few moments she’d thought about bringing Byron’s mouth back down to hers. For a few moments, she’d craved more than his companionship. She’d craved the contact. The promise of heat that came with it.

But had she wanted it – had she wanted him – for the single reason that heat could erode loneliness? There was trust there. There was affection. For those small starbursts of eternity, there had been longing and the promise of flame. It had been too long since she’d felt the sheer, electrical pulse of new chemistry.

Why had Byron’s kiss made it seem like so long since she’d felt the flame? The passion?

It’s almost that time again! We’ll be ringing in the new year with the launch of my fourth Superromance novel, Wooing the Wedding Planner, on January 1st!

No more wedding marches for her! 

Wedding planner Roxie Honeycutt can make happy-ever-after come true for anyone except herself. Freshly divorced and done with love, she’s okay with watching clients walk down the aisle. What’s not okay? Sharing a charming Victorian house with accountant Byron Strong. He’s frustratingly sexy and determined to keep her confused. 

Roxie thought Byron’s expertise was numbers, yet somehow he sees her for who she really is. Somehow he understands the hurt she hides behind a trademark smile. Suddenly romance is tempting again, even if it means risking another heartbreak.

I’ve been eager to share this part of my hometown saga since I started writing this series for Harlequin years ago. As with all my other Fairhope books, it can be read as a stand-alone novel for those who haven’t had a chance to read A Place With Briar, Married One Night or His Rebel Heart. Wooing the Wedding Planner is doubly special because while it isn’t the last hometown story I’m contracted to write for Superromance (I’m writing the fifth one now with the sixth in planning stages), it is the completion of the first generational arc in my Fairhope saga. For those who have read the first three books, you’ll know this as Roxie and Byron’s story. In fact, during the writing process, it was filed under the working title “RoxBy.” Thankfully, the lovely editors of Superromance wisely chose to scrap all my meager title suggestions and call it Wooing the Wedding Planner instead.

I’ll be sharing more about the book between now and New Year’s here at my website and via social media so be sure to check back in. If you aren’t already, follow me on Facebook and Twitter or have the news sent straight to your inbox with my newsletter. Just click on any of the pink Join My Mailing List! tabs throughout the website.

Preorder Wooing the Wedding Planner today at Amazon, Harlequin.com or wherever books are sold! See the BOOKS page for more…

Wooing the Wedding Planner is Roxie’s story. The book has been set for release in January 2017. That’s only six months away! Harlequin has already set up a pre-order page on Amazon. I know some of you are curious about Roxie’s hero.
