Summer has just begun, but fall is coming, along with new releases!
AFTERNOON DELIGHT (September 2014) -
Sarah McCall, food truck co-owner and recent Manhattan transplant, savors each moment of her new job—whether it’s refining the truck’s menu, learning the city, or spending afternoons in bed with the hot paramedic who’s fast becoming her favorite customer.
Tim Cannon spends his days sprinting from one emergency to the next. He eats like he works—at top speed — somewhere along the line he lost his ability to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Hooking up with Sarah is just another way to cope with the stress of his job, until their afternoon trysts coax Tim into enjoying everything he’s avoided. Can Tim learn to balance his job saving lives with the everyday delights that make life worth living? If anyone can teach him, it’s Sarah….
THE LIST (February 2015) -
Matchmaker and stationer Matilda Davies is in the business of connecting people. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. Haunted by a traumatic past, the British ex-pat is driven to create lasting connections, but she’s never put her name on her list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…
Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI Agent. He specializes in financial crimes, piecing together stories of greed and devastation, then ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. The combination of passion and mystery draws Daniel deep into the dark, desperate past of the woman he fiercely loves. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda, but even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…
Details coming soon for EVENING STORM (8/15) and THE MUSE (12/15). We’re finalizing the covers and will reveal those as soon as they’re ready! Stay tuned for giveaways, and enjoy your summer reading!
The wonderful writers who blog at Wonkomance decided to start a video podcast, and I was their first guest. You can see the replay here. It’s about an hour long, and includes a really well-thought out Q&A, some talk about hair, and me reading from a very safe-for-work portion of Uncommon Passion.
In other news, Afternoon Delight, my first Intermix release with Berkley will be out in September, 2014, just four short months away! This story revisits Lt. Tim Cannon of the FDNY EMS division (first featured in Breath on Embers). One gorgeous spring afternoon he meets Sarah, a new transplant to NYC, who’s opening a food truck with a friend. What starts off as a sexy competition turns complicated and emotional…you know, as these things do. I had a great time writing this story, and I’m so excited it will be available so quickly The book is connected to three more upcoming releases I’m feverishly writing. I hope to be able to show off the covers for this book and the others in the series very soon!
In the meantime, happy reading and a very happy spring to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere!
