Weekend Writing Warriors – 12/7/14

I have a new release this month! A few of you will remember it, because I shared bits as I was writing it. Well, Three Little Words will be available from Kensington/Lyrical on December 15th, and I can’t wait to share it with the world. It’s a little sweet, a little slapstick, and holy cannoli it gets hot! Check it out:

“Tequila, three shots.”

Once upon a time, three was her magic number. The key to managing everything life had thrown at her. Good and bad. The magic of three stopped being effective not long after she’d turned thirty–a bitter disappointment she’d never managed to reconcile with herself. Turns out, fate had her number in another way.

Well, screw fate. She’d played the good girl long enough.

It’s never too late to make the best impulsive decision of your life.

Jo Masters isn’t the party girl she used to be, but now that she’s a woman without obligations, she’s ready to recapture a little of her misspent youth. Her niece’s wedding, with its open bar and dark dance floor, proves to be the perfect opportunity to let loose.

Gregory Stark is just trying to make it through his son’s wedding day… and make some time with the gorgeous brunette on the bride’s side of the aisle. His kid’s wedding probably isn’t the best occasion to put the moves on the sexy woman, who introduces herself only as ‘Josie’, but his best friend is closing in on her too and he has to act fast. With a couple of tequila shots under his belt, Greg propositions Josie — and neither wants to refuse.

Weekend Writing Warrior – 7/27/14

This week I’m celebrating a new contract! I just signed to publish Going Deep with Kensington/Lyrical! Here are 8 sentences and blurb:


“You’re a member of the press—you want an interview, you need to contact my agent.”

“I want to talk to you.”

“And making that dream come true is what earns my agent her fifteen percent,” he countered.

“I meant I want to talk to you as a friend.”

“We’re friends?”

She blinked but didn’t back down. “We used to be…sort of.”

“Well, there’s a compelling argument.”


Brooke Hastings is convinced local-boy-turned-star Brian Dalton holds the key to her success. The one-time Pulitzer Prize nominee suspects her editor is trying to derail her career, but she’s sitting on the story of a lifetime and she needs to get it out there. Desperate to prove she isn’t a one-hit-wonder, she taps her old high school frenemy for leverage.

Brian stumbled into celebrity when he landed a show on the Earth Channel. The hunky marine biologist is very different from the serious, studious boy who left Mobile a decade before, but his love for the Gulf Coast has never waned. He says goodbye to Hollywood and returns to Alabama, looking for the quiet life he always wanted and hoping for a chance with the girl he always loved.

Brooke asks him to help expose some of the lingering effects of the Gulf oil disaster, and Brian jumps at the chance to get close to her.  As they join forces to help preserve the place they call home Brooke and Brain discover that together they are unstoppable.

Here’s the pic I used as inspiration for Brian:
