Books, Books, & More Books!

Hi, awesome readers!! Summer kept me super busy, but I had a lot of fun. Check out my Facebook page to see where my laptop and I have been traveling. Hope you had a great summer as well!

500X750I’m super excited to announce that Up to Date (Better Date than Never, Book #8) released today!!

EXCERPT from Up to Date:

I glanced back at the bid sheet, thinking I could really use a day at the spa to chill me out. But I’d used my credit card so much lately it should’ve melted. Sigh. Ooh, the spa package was number one hundred and eighty so my donation sheet must be coming up. My gaze flicked to Kaitlin for a brief second. “My problem’s not him, it’s—”

While still ogling the spa display, I sauntered forward and collided with a broad (muscular) chest. Warm hands wrapped around my elbows. “Are you all right?” a male asked.

Chills vibrated through me at the familiar voice. Biting my lip, I lifted my gaze. Almond-brown eyes confirmed I’d barreled into Greg, who peered down at me in a way that had my tummy doing successive flips. “H-Hi,” I stumbled.

Smooth, Ginger. Very smooth.

His mouth curved upward “Hi, yourself.”

“Ginger, I—” Kaitlin paused mid-sentence, her gaze flipping from me to Greg then back to me again. “I, um, am just going to check on my last bid. Yeah, that’s what I’m going to do . . .”

I gave her a look, begging her not to leave me, but clearly she’d failed eye-language class because she gave me a thumbs up sign before skittering off.

Um, hello? Totally inappropriate gesture when I was on a date with the friend she had set me up with. Sheesh. Taking a deep breath, I turned back to Greg and willed the butterflies in my belly to chill.

No such luck.

Up to Date is available on Amazon, iBooks, Nook, Kobo, Amazon UK, Amazon AU, and Amazon CA.

DejaDate2 200x300 Déjà Date will be the next book in the USA Today Bestselling Better Date than Never series:

She sent Chris Bradley off with a “Rock On Stud” farewell in Truth or Date. She tried to nab Noah Peterson in My Last Blind Date. Blonde bombshell. Office flirt. But things didn’t go so well for her in Up to Date… Get ready for Melinda Morgan’s story revealed in Déjà Date (Better Date than Never series, Book #9). Pre-order available on iBooks and pre-order is coming soon to Amazon.

SeeMe_200x300If you’ve been waiting for another Young Adult novel, then you’ll be excited to know that See Me will be released on November 21, 2014 and is available for pre-order on Amazon, iBooks, Amazon UK, Amazon CA, and Amazon AU. :)

 

unnatural-anthology-200x300I’m also excited to be a part of Beautifully Unnatural: A Young Adult Paranormal Boxed Set—a four-novel collection by four bestselling authors, which is available for only 99 cents (limited time).

Giveaway & More!!

FBBlast-GoldHi, everyone!! I’m excited to let you know about my Better Date than Never Series GIVEAWAY that you can ENTER HERE. Thank you so much to all of the readers who’ve told me how much you love these stories and big hugs to all of you who have left book reviews–it is much appreciated. :)

I’m having such a blast writing this series. The characters have become good friends and I love visiting with them every day. That’s why I decided to run this GIVEAWAY to thank my readers for all of your support. The USA Today Bestselling Better Date than Never Boxed Set includes Books 1-6 in the series.

DriventoDate_200x300As most of you know, Driven to Date is Book #7 in the series and is available now on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.

200x300I’m excited to announce that Up to Date (Better Date than Never, Book #8) will be released on 8/31/14 and is now available for pre-order on iBooks. Here’s a special sneak peek for you:

“Paul has a friend who’s single. Want to double date?” Kaitlin asked.

I blinked. Dating had been the last thing on my mind. Unfortunately, my track record with men ranked right there with my career choice (aka depressing). But, I shouldn’t judge the entire male species based on Victor. Or Tyler. Or Anthony. . . .

“Ginger?”

“I’m here.” I twisted my dark hair around my finger. “Just trying to decide if I’m ready to endure the pain. I mean, date again.”

Thanks again for all of your support and good luck on my GIVEAWAY!!

Driven to Date – New Release!!

DriventoDate_200x300I’m excited to announce that Driven to Date (Better Date then Never, Book #7) has been released!! Driven to Date is a Special Edition, as it’s a full-length novel at 150 pages. This is Jill’s story, who you met briefly as Ethan’s friend in License to Date (Better Date than Never, Book #6). Here’s the summary of Driven to Date:

Career-driven attorney, Jill Parnell, has worked long and hard to become a partner at Corbett, Gray, & Shaw. When the coveted position is given to the boss’s nephew, she does what any intelligent employee would do—attends a colleague’s wedding and schmoozes a high-powered partner at another law firm. 

Her potential new boss has only one condition for her, that she demonstrate a personal life that will support a thriving career. Pretending to have a boyfriend is outside Jill’s comfort zone, but she invites the best man to act the part and Ryan is all-too eager to play her significant other. Sparks fly between them, but she reminds herself she’s only driven to date to get back on the partner track.

When Jill discovers Ryan is the lawyer who stole her promotion, her charade threatens to implode. But breaking off their pretend relationship could cost her the job of her dreams. And the more she gets to know Ryan, the more she’s tempted to tame the bad boy, and make him her own.

Hope you enjoy Jill’s story, and big thanks to anyone who leaves a review on Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads!! Now, I’m writing Up to Date, which will be Ginger’s story. I know a lot of you have asked for her book, so I’m super excited to dive into her world to see if we can finally get Ginger the happily ever after she deserves. As a special treat, I slipped the COVER REVEAL for Up to Date (Better Date than Never, Book #8) at the end of Driven to Date!! :)

Happy reading, everyone!!

License to Date – Now Available!!

License to Date (Better Date than Never series #6) has just been released!! Yay!!

License to Date is Kaitlin’s story. You met Kaitlin in A Twist of Date (Better Date than Never series #5) and she’s Melanie’s stepsister. Drove Mel nuts with her seeming perfection? Was engaged to Mel’s hot ex, Paul DeWitt? Ringing any bells? Yes, that Kaitlin! Now she gets her own story!!

Here’s the lowdown:

After discovering her fiancé cheats on her, Kaitlin is focused on two things: remodeling her home and avoiding men at all costs. But her friends insist she get back in the driver’s seat and date again. They strike a hard bargain and agree to paint her house if she goes on five dates.

Anxious to get the paint job started, Kaitlin schedules five dates in five days, but her plan falls to pieces when a sexy bartender at her venue-of-choice makes her swoon. Even though he observes each of the dates from afar, she can’t help but want him to come a little closer.

The last person she should fall for is a mysterious bartender with a sinful smile, but Paul makes her want to take risks again. Will the charming man with electric blue eyes break her heart or will he prove to her that a license to date is what makes life worth the drive?

License to Date is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo, and is coming soon to iTunes and paperback. Hope you enjoy Kaitlin’s story. Happy reading!!
