Susan’s New Release & GIVEAWAY

Dear Fabulous Reader,

I’m excited to announce the release of Harper’s story, A Christmas Kiss (Kissed by the Bay series, 5). You met Harper in Just One Kiss (Kissed by the Bay series, 3) as Charlie’s divorce attorney. I’m thrilled she gets her own story and—hopefully!—her own happily-ever-after. A Christmas Kiss is available on all of the sales channels listed below. I also want to share this special giveaway with you…


    


In the contemporary romance novella, A Christmas Kiss (Kissed by the Bay series, 5), Harper Avery is a no-nonsense divorce lawyer who is trying to help her client move on to better things. Gabriel Hart is a laid-back divorce lawyer who believes that sometimes love needs a second chance. Thanks to Gabriel’s encouragement, Harper is crushed when her client offers to give her soon-to-be-ex a second chance.

In order to lick her wounds, Harper books a holiday vacation at a friend’s cabin in Tahoe, but when she arrives she discovers a mix-up with the booking and opposing counsel Gabriel Hart has rented the same cabin for the same dates! Gabriel is handsome, charming, and his naïveté about love will undoubtedly hurt Harper’s client.

To enter the giveway, COMMENT ON THIS POST and tell me what you think Harper should do now that she’s arrived at the cabin for her holiday retreat and found Gabriel there!! The giveaway will close on Sunday, December 11th. So, be sure to check back on Monday, December 12th, to see if you won any of the above prizes!!


*Autographed paperbacks make great stocking stuffers! I have 15 copies of Every Little Kiss (Kissed by the Bay series, 1) and 5 copies of Love at First Date (Better Date than Never series, 1) in stock that I can ship this week.

New Release & Free Boxed Set

DearAubrey 200x300-2** NEW RELEASE ** I’m super excited to announce that my contemporary young adult novel, THE CRUSH DILEMMA, is now available!! I started working on this story about a decade ago (yes, really!!), and Poppy’s first book is now complete – woot!

Teen geek, Poppy Pinkleton, is adding some spice to her junior year of high school: A year of psychological experiments that will 1) Earn her three units of college credit; 2) Give her an outlet to say what she wants, when she wants; and 3) Will NOT include her parents telling her to be the “bigger person.”

How, you ask? Poppy’s gotten the green light from Ms. Peterson, the newspaper head, to write an online advice column for the school. She’s found the perfect name for her alter ego: Aubrey. It means someone who rules with “magical wisdom.” She’ll be in control of her online experiment, online identity, and divvy her wisdom to the masses while tracking the results for her mini-thesis. 

Now, protected by a secret identity, she’s got the popular crowd clambering to know what she thinks about fashion, homework, and eek . . . even sex! And the best part is, her parents and best friends don’t know anything about it. Finally, she can let loose a wild side and speak her mind—right or wrong, without having to meet anyone’s expectations.

Soon, however, dishing out advice leads to more than Poppy can handle on her own and she must make a choice. Hide behind her alter ego or take the chance that everyone, including the new boy at school, will like her for everything she is.

Hi, awesome reader!! Do you have Kindle Unlimited? If so, you can check out Every Little Kiss, The Perfect Kiss, Shaken, See Me, and Treasured Dreams, A Short Story Collection. They’ll be in the program for the next few months and Just One Kiss will be there shortly.

JUST ONE KISS (Kissed by the Bay, #3) is now available on Amazon, iBooks, Nook, Kobo, and Google Play!!

Charlie Rockwell’s divorce from her rock star ex left her with a broken heart, a mansion on the bluffs in her hometown of Blue Moon Bay, and an empty bank account. Now, Charlie has to generate enough income to keep the house she loves.

When producers of the soap opera, Just One Love, offer to rent Charlie’s house for a sizable fee, Charlie’s tempted. Only she wants nothing to do with the spotlight or dating someone famous again, and the show’s sexy star, Luke Montgomery, has her in his sights. Reluctantly, Charlie agrees to rent her home and vows to stay out of Luke’s way.

Unexpectedly, as filming progresses, Charlie witnesses Luke’s sweet side. She also remembers her college theater days and love of acting. During an on-set emergency, she’s asked to stand-in during a scene, and her undeniable chemistry with Luke impresses the producers enough that they want Charlie full-time.

Can Charlie finally have the career she’s dreamed about? And will Luke break her heart, or will he be everything he seems and what she always wanted?

This book bundle includes seven short stories and an epilogue from the bestselling Treasured Dreams series.

Holly adores living in her small mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, treasures her beading business, but longs to fall in love. When she meets a handsome stranger at the Falling Leaves Festival, she starts to wonder if dreams do come true. . . .

“An Unexpected Date is a wonderful and perfect release to a stressful or crazy day.” — Cafè of Dreams Book Reviews

“It’s super short and super sweet. ” — Getting Your Read On on An Unexpected Kiss

“It’s different from most romance series, it’s certainly entertaining and it’s a slice of life that most of us can relate to on some level with a memory or two of our own.” — Romance is Ageless on An Unexpected Love

AN UNEXPECTED DATE (6 pages, 1700 words).

Holly loves living in her cozy mountain town and all the surrounding beauty soothes her soul. She treasures beading jewelry for her own small business while watching nature and its amazing creatures outside her window. But, her mom begs her to move back to the city so she can find a man to marry.

Holly doesn’t want to give up on her dreams, but does that mean she’ll have to give up on love?

AN UNEXPECTED KISS (25 pages, 5200 words).

Holly is beyond excited about her first date with Dave. They share a love for her beloved small mountain resort town, plus she’s never felt such sparks for a guy before. But when her mom warns her to proceed with caution so she won’t get disappointed, Holly pulls back—until an unexpected surprise entices her to risk her heart completely.

AN UNEXPECTED LOVE (20 pages, 4500 words).

Holly receives an unexpected offer to expand her jewelry business, Treasured Creations, and she doesn’t know whether to accept the contract or not. Selling beaded jewelry at festivals in her small town is one thing, but a painful experience from her past has made her gun-shy about taking risks.

She wants to discuss her fears with Dave, her boyfriend of two months, but she’s falling in love with him and feels ashamed of her past failures.

Will opening up to Dave jeopardize their developing romance? Or will it lead them to a place more beautiful than she could’ve ever imagined?

When Holly’s boyfriend is offered the job of his dreams in Africa, Holly must choose between the love of her life and the small mountain town that soothes her soul.

AN UNEXPECTED WEDDING (24 pages, 5300 words).

Instead of being an excited bride-to-be, Holly’s frazzled beyond belief as she tries to plan her wedding. Her fiancé, Dave, says whatever she wants works for him, but she can’t get her mom and soon-to-be mother-in-law to so much as agree on a date.

The worst part is that her dad passed away four years ago, and she’s heartbroken he won’t be walking her down the aisle.

Holly begins to accept the wedding is doomed, but then an unexpected surprise reminds her why she’s getting married in the first place.

AN UNEXPECTED JOY (22 pages, 4900 words).

Holly is struggling with some of life’s greatest challenges, but hiking in Montana’s rocky mountains gives her much needed peace she hopes to share with Dave.

AN UNEXPECTED BABY (12 pages, 3200 words).

Holly’s already in over her head when she receives an unexpected surprise, which is beyond her wildest dreams.

Happy reading!!

GiveawayELKENTER TO WIN an autographed paperback of Every Little Kiss*. To enter to this giveaway, just leave a comment below telling me your favorite character from the Better Date than Never series and why.

Here’s a teaser from Every Little Kiss:

Max’s blue eyes peered down at me. “Do you believe in legends, Wendy?”

I lifted my lashes. “I used to.”

His gaze went upward. “It’s a full moon tonight. Do you know if it’s a blue moon?”

“It’s the second full moon this month, which means it is a blue moon.” My throat went dry. I wanted him to kiss me, but this was crazy. I barely knew him.

“But I don’t believe in the legend anymore.”

He caressed my cheek. “Are you willing to risk it, though? One kiss, right here, under a blue moon?”

Every ounce of me knew I should run back inside the inn for safety—not from violent danger, but from the perils of opening my heart. Instead of running, though, I found myself whispering, “Yes . . .”

I lifted up on my toes as he moved toward me, then his mouth captured mine. For a moment, panic rolled through me, but I smacked it down. My heart was not at risk, because there was no way we would fall in love. Max was leaving Blue Moon Bay in the morning, so my feelings were completely safe. With that settled, I let myself get lost in the kiss.

His lips were warm, soft, and firm. I leaned into him, breathing in the light and faded cologne—obviously expensive—that wafted up from his neck. His shirt was dry while mine was still damp, and our bodies pressed together as he slanted his head and deepened the kiss.

A small breathy sound escaped me as his tongue stroked along my bottom lip. I should not be doing this. Despite my mental reservations, I opened my mouth and tasted him. Oh, yum. Double yum. All of the pain and heartache from today fell away as I focused on Max’s delicious kisses that were making my legs turn all soft and noodle-like.

His fingers skimmed lightly down my neck, making me shiver. Our tongues met and parted, then met again. I couldn’t believe I was kissing a total stranger right here on the beach but a little voice in my head told me to stop worrying about it. I happily obeyed. The rush of heat flowing through me felt way too good to care about anything else.

The fact that I might never see Max again made my passion grow, and our kisses became hungry as his tongue explored mine. We stood for the longest time, kissing, and finally embracing in a body hug that threatened to unhinge me. I wanted this man, with every fiber of my being, and I didn’t know hardly anything about him.

I suddenly wanted the legend to be true, that kissing him at this spot, under a blue moon would make him mine—if only for tonight.
