Because Samhain Publishing has closed its doors permanently, that means that three of the Ross Siblings books–Rock Me, Leave Me Breathless, Take Me On–will be unavailable in digital format for a time. No one wants to get them reissued ASAP more than I do, but unfortunately these things take time. As soon as I know they’re available, I will update. I’m sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you so much for your patience!
In case you missed it, I’ve had a pretty neat announcement!
Look for RAW DEAL in January of 2017. Books two and three will follow around May and September, respectively. More details are coming soon.
I can’t wait for you guys to meet the Larson boys!
Coming December 1, 2015!
WATCH ME FALL
Starla Kimbrell might be on the worst date of her life, but she didn’t expect to find herself walking home alone on a dark dirt road after her latest mistake leaves her in a cloud of dust. Luckily, salvation comes in the form of Jared Stanton—single dad of two, sexy cowboy, blue eyes like whoa. If she isn’t careful, she might just let him become the latest in her string of amorous disasters.
Jared doesn’t consider himself on the market. His first love left his heart in pieces that even a marriage to someone else couldn’t salvage, and now that he’s divorced and focusing on his twin daughters, he isn’t looking to put another woman in the shadow of the one who crushed him. Still, the stranded tattoo artist intrigues him, while her unstable ex-boyfriend makes him worry for her safety. Is the guy just a mouthy jerk, or is Starla in real danger?
Starla quickly learns that not everyone in her life is thrilled with her new interest in Jared. Their cautious courtship is rocked when tragedy strikes and the world as she and her coworkers know it is shattered. Faced with a situation she can’t handle, she turns to the only man who has ever made her feel truly safe, even as she learns that Jared’s protective instincts might be destructive enough in their own way to rip them apart for good.

Hey guys! This week, EverAfter Romance, an awesome new ebook app, is giving away BREATHE ME IN **free** to new users. Just download the app, create an account in two seconds, and the book will be placed in your library. If you already have the app use code bmi2015 and you can get it free, too!
It’s been a while since I gave you guys an update. That’s because something really cool happened over the summer. While it’s amazingly awesome, it sort of threw a few things into question… like a release date for Starla’s book. But I’ll let you in on what I know!
I’m thrilled to announce I’ve signed with Louise Fury of the Bent Agency. She and I met at the RWA conference in San Antonio, and I felt we just clicked–one of those meant-to-be moments. While I can’t really speak of anything we have planned, just know that I LOVE the ideas she has for the future of the Ross Siblings series. But yeah, it does mean that I have no idea what’s in store for Starla’s book, but since my kids have been back in school, I’ve been working like a fiend on it. And I love how it’s coming along. I hope you do too!
To help with your wait for her story, though, I’m going to give you a little something in the meantime to whet your appetite for the Dermamania crew, so never fear. I’m shooting for a November 4th release on it (my son’s birthday!)–a novella to update you on the crew and give a peek of the things to come.
Before THAT, I’m going to release my standalone novella, SHAMELESS, which appeared in the SOME LIKE IT HOT anthology, on its own. That should be coming along in September. I’ll share more details when it’s all ready to go.
Thank you so much for your support for my series, and for your patience. Much love to you all; I hope you had a wonderful summer. I did! But now it’s time to work. Stay tuned…
So. If you’ve noticed the disparity between the Unleashed cover and the rest of the Ross siblings series, you aren’t alone. Part of this is my fault–I never did foresee making this a series when I first wrote Unleashed. So the covers of the books don’t form the cohesive unit that they should, because I insisted this wouldn’t be a series. :p Anyway, now that I realize how wrong I was, the team at Samhain has presented me with a brand new Unleashed cover. And it’s yummy! And it’s awesome! And…EVAN!
So without further ado, I present the new face of my very first published novel, UNLEASHED.
I’m getting so excited about the Houston BookRave! It’s being held November 2nd at the Zotz Education Center in Houston, Texas, and it’s a FREE event–but you’ll need to click the link to the site and get a ticket. What I’m most excited about, though, is that this will be my first signing where I should have print copies of Leave Me Breathless available. Yay!
Also (and this is pretty awesome too) it’s my understanding the organizers are going to take orders for books from readers who are unable to attend the event…so what that means is, even if you can’t be there, you’ll have a way to purchase a book that I will sign while I’m there, and it will then be shipped to you afterward. I’ll get you that information as soon as I have it. :)
ETA: And now I have it! The link is here: http://houstonbookrave.blogspot.com/p/on-line-book-sales.html
I hope to see you there!
Finally, FINALLY, as of about 3:15 a.m. this very morning, Take Me On–the third and final book of the Ross Siblings series, is safe and sound with my editor…and damn, am I tired. This freaking summer cold is kicking my butt, and I can only hope my sleep-deprived ramblings make any kind of sense to my wonderful editor. :D Assuming they do, and all is well, you can look for the book to release in digital format on December 17, 2013. Print will come much later in 2014, which is my publisher’s usual schedule.
I’ve managed to get the book page all set up, so take a peek here! It’s complete with the cover and blurb, and I’ll be getting an excerpt and a playlist up soon.
I hope all of you had a fabulous summer. As mentioned on the Latest News page, Take Me On may be the final Ross book, but I’m sure I’m not done with the Dermamania crew. Starla is talking to me now. Wonder what could be in store for her? :D
All my best to you guys!
If you’re coming to see me and all the other fabulous authors at Book Bash in Orlando on June 29 (and I really hope you are!), I need to alert you to something. The bookseller who is providing the books for sale will only be bringing 20 copies each of Rock Me and Unleashed. With a projected 1200+ attendees, I’m afraid there’s a chance it won’t be enough! So if you’re coming for a signed book, PLEASE buy beforehand and bring it with you. I certainly don’t want anyone disappointed if I do run out. I approached my publisher about the possibility of getting more, and they are so wonderful and willing to help, but it’s complicated. Way more than I expected. If I were self-published, I could simply sell them at my table like many of the others. But I’m not, and I really wasn’t willing to try to negotiate for more books when I’ve never even done a signing before and don’t know for 100% certain that I NEED more books. So in the end I made the decision to stick with what we have and to let you all know about the limited quantities as best I can.
I will, of course, have other things on hand to sign–1000 Leave Me Breathless bookmarks and 250 cute little black/hot pink tote bags I had designed. I’ll be glad to take pictures and hang around until everyone gets their autograph! After that, I’ll go hang out at CRAVE for the Wicked Book GNO. And those will most likely be the only events I’ll be able to attend, as this is also our family vacation. :)
Thank you all so much for your support, and I really look forward to meeting many of you in Orlando! Only one month to go!
All my best,
Yay! I’m so excited to present the cover of the stand-alone version of “Light Me Up“–coming soon to an ereader near you! :)
Please note there is little in the way of new content in this version–maybe some tweaks here and there. But if you bought and read this story in A Very Naughty Xmas, you won’t be getting anything new here. Except this awesome cover, of course!
I hope for this to go live at all the usual retailers by this weekend. Hopefully sooner. So be on the lookout! And I’ll post to Facebook and Twitter as soon as I see it’s available.
As always, thanks to everyone for your amazing support!
