Reunited in Love Hit #42 on Apple’s Contemporary Romance List!

January 29 2014 Reunited in Love Hits Apple Contemporary Romance Seller #42

Reunited in Love (Hearts on the Line Book 2) hit Apple’s Contemporary Romance List at 58 earlier, and peaked at 42 (still sitting in the top 50 as of now). This was a complete shock to me, and I’m so grateful to all my awesome readers, reviewers and bloggers. I couldn’t have done this without your incredible support. Thank you!

Note: I was planning to release Redemption in Love (Hearts on the Line Book 3) on February 11, but given the response, I’m releasing it on February 1. Sign up for my mailing list to get notified with links to retailers. :) Thank you!

A Little Excerpt from Redemption in Love

Reunited in Love (Hearts on the Line Book 2)I’ve been skimming Redemption in Love (Hearts on the Line, Book 3) while formatting it and found this little gem between Gavin and Ethan. If you’ve read the second book, Reunited in Love, you know that Ethan did not follow his younger brother’s advice. :)

“So Kerri’s helping Meredith?”

“Yeah. It’s better this way. And before you start up about her being a spy for the enemy, she’s not. In fact, I’m going to propose to her as soon as I think of a suitably romantic way to do it.”

Gavin shrugged. “Buy her an island and hide the ring in the sand. That’s pretty romantic.”

Ethan stared at him. “Proportion, Gavin. A sense of proportion. If you happen to find one lying around on the sidewalk or something, you really should pick it up.”

Reunited in Love is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple and Kobo. Redemption in Love is coming out in February 2014.

Reunited in Love

A temporary reunion…

Newly jobless and adrift, former investment banker Kerri Wilson travels to Virginia to see her best friend and regroup, only to run into billionaire playboy Ethan Lloyd. It’s been years since she’s snuck out of his bed after the most amazing sex of her life, and he’s so not her type—she likes them tall, dark and manageable. But he’s too hot to resist, and she succumbs to another sizzling, no-strings-attached (or so she thinks) night.

Unwilling to let her go this time, Ethan makes a simple proposition: a job, a place to stay, and an exclusive affair that will end when either of them finds someone else. But with her dark, painful past catching up to her, Kerri may have to bolt again—even though her heart is telling her to stay. And Ethan’s not giving her up without fighting to make their “temporary” arrangement something far more permanent…

Reunited in Love is approximately 398 pages long in print (or 79,00 words long). The next book in the series, Redemption in Love, is coming out in February 2014.

December 2013 Update

Sorry, it’s been so long since I let you know what I’ve been up to. I know the last “monthly” update was August.

So this is going to be sort of a year-end review plus my plans for the rest of the year and early 2014.

2013 has been the Year of Never-Ending Construction Projects. I’ll be so happy when I don’t have to wake up to the noise of people drilling into concrete walls. But the good thing is that my health has been generally good, especially compared to last year when both Hero Material and I were sick for something like nine months.

So that means I’ve been more productive this year. I wrote 3 books (2 full-length novels and 1 novella) and just finished drafting another novel. They’re all in the same series, which is going to be released early next year along with the relaunch of Carnal Secrets. I decided that the title and the cover just don’t work — too many people seem to think that because there’s “carnal” in the title the book is erotic or something. Hence the change.

So here’s the series information —

Series Name: Hearts on the Line

First Book: Vengeful in Love (previously Carnal Secrets; Natalie Hall & Alex Damon; hot billionaire boss w/ a secret agenda romance) — to be relaunched in mid- to late December in print and e.

Second Book: Reunited in Love (Kerri Wilson & Ethan Lloyd; reunion, forced close proximity romance) — early January (print & e)

Third Book: Redemption in Love (Amandine Monroe Lloyd & Gavin Lloyd, Ethan’s younger brother; marriage in trouble) — mid- to late February (print & e)

Fourth Book: Sweet in Love (Brooke de Lorenzo & Pete Monroe; falling for your best friend’s younger brother) — mid- to late March (print & e)

Fifth Book: Forever in Love (Catherine Fairchild Lloyd & Blaine Davis; a fallen gold-digger socialite and a billionaire’s bastard bartender son) — mid- to late April or early May (print & e)

In addition to the above titles, I’m really hoping to release three more books in 2014, all in the contemporary romance genre.

If you want to be the first to know when they’re out, subscribe to my mailing list.

I promise not to waste your time — I only use it to send new release info and discount/sales information. :-)

Thanks, and may you all have a great, fulfilling holiday season with your loved ones.

August 2013 Update

It’s crazy how 2013 is more than half over. It’s crazy…crazy I tell you!

I’ve been terrible about blogging. Mostly it’s due to my being busy with things that required (and drained) a lot of my energy.

Recently, I’ve been super stressed, and I started taking phosphatidyl serine, which supposedly helps reduce cortisol (a stress hormone). I think it’s helping me stay calmer than I would otherwise. It also supposedly boosts brain function, but I haven’t noticed anything. However, cognitive benefits were tested on elderly people who had trouble remembering things, and I don’t fit the demographic. If you want to try it, you can get a bottle from Amazon. It’s not that expensive.

In July, I finished drafting one book (contemporary romance), and I’m working on another book that’s tied to it (a novella). I’m hoping to release them all either December 2013 or early in 2014. It’s going to depend purely on the editorial schedule and how healthy The Boy is for the rest of the year.

And just for fun — and I haven’t done any self-improvement that’s mentally stimulating in a while — I’ve decided to study Photoshop on my own. I have a few books on it, and why the heck not? I only did one unit so far, and I’ve already learned so much. (BTW – one of the books was written and published by Adobe, which called Photoshop “intuitive.” *snort*)

On the reading front, I just devoured Ilona Andrews’s Magic Rises. It’s my favorite Kate Daniels novel now. :) Really loved it.

The plan is to finish the novella this month and start revising the novel I wrote in July.

I hope everyone’s doing well, and have a great August.
