SWEET HOPE BLURB….

Sweet Hope Blurb announcement Pic

 

GAHHHHH!!!!

I can’t believe that we’re here… that we have reached the final instalment of The Sweet Home Series!

This was the series that changed my life. Sweet Home was the novel that launched me as an author and it’s bitterSWEET to see it end…

BUT…

I LOVE that it’s Ally’s story that will bring it to a close.

I ADORE Ally. To quote Little Big Town, I have a “Girl Crush” on Ally. And as such, I’m giving her the most heart-achingly beautiful story…

“Who with???” I hear you ask.

Well, you’ll just have to work that out for yourself. ;)

So here it is, the SWEET HOPE blurb:

*****

From the USA Today Best Selling Sweet Home Series, comes Sweet Hope.

My name is Ally Prince and I’ve always been unlucky in love. I don’t know why, I just always… have.

When all of my best friends were falling for their soul mates in College, I was left behind. I was Ally, the pretty cousin of superstar quarterback, Romeo Prince. I was Ally, the best friend to the most amazing group of girls I’ve ever known—a title I loved, but one I became tired of ‘just’ being. And I was Ally, the one on which they could all rely.

But to me, I was Ally, the girl with the heart no one had claimed… And I was, Ally, the girl, who underneath it all, was heart-breakingly lonely.

I LOVE love; the thought of it, the nervous excitement of falling for Mr. Right, the desire of someone becoming my entire world… of me becoming theirs. I’ve always wanted passion, heart-stopping, epic, life-changing romance… I’ve always wanted the fairytale… I’ve always wanted it all.

It just never seemed like I would get it.

For the past few years I’ve thrown myself into my career as a museum curator. I’m the best of the best, the person every museum wants to hire, so when an opportunity came up to move to Seattle for work, I jumped at the chance. My cousin and my best friend lived in Seattle and I needed a change. I needed a new beginning…

I wasn’t expecting to meet anyone in the Emerald City. I wasn’t expecting to work closely with the reclusive new sculptor my all-important gallery design was centered around. And I certainly wasn’t expecting to fall for him… heart-stopping, epic, life-changing love…

My real life fairytale come true.

But, like in every fairytale, there’s a villain, a dark and tortured soul… I just didn’t know that the villain and the hero in my story would end up being one and the same.

New Adult Romance Novel—contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

I’m working hard to get SWEET HOPE done as soon as possible, and I’ll have a release date for you soon.

I’M SO EXCITED TO BRING YOU THIS STORY!!!!!

ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

 

 

UPDATE: HEART RECAPTURED RELEASE DATE

Hey guys!

I’m writing this post today to inform you all that I am delaying the release of HEART RECAPTURED until Sunday December 14th 2014.

 

Heart Recaptured - 3D

As some of you might know, I have not been in the best of health of late, and consequently, this has interfered with my writing schedule. I really want to give this highly anticipated second novel in the Hangmen Series, the time and care it deserves so not to disappoint you guys. This means that I need a couple of extra weeks to get this to a standard I can be proud of and one that you can lose your minds over!!!

And you will. Ky is just…yeah…. *swoon*

…..And Lilah…my sweet, broken, lovely Lilah… *sniff*

It is only a couple of weeks later than I had originally scheduled and I hope that you all are understanding in my reasons for doing this. I have always met my deadlines and pride myself on getting the best standard of story to you, so this delay greatly disappoints me. I’m a perfectionist and I don’t like to be late or fail in anything I do—yes, this can make me annoying at times!!!! But sometimes life just works out this way and you’ve just gotta ride that wave! As my nanna would sing to me, ‘Que Sera Sera’.

RAZE will still be released on the set date of December 30th 2014, so you are still getting two novels from me in December. Whoop Whoop!!!! AND RAZE’s cover will be revealed TOMORROW!!!! Eeeeekkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Blog Tour sign up’s for both novels will be available later this week, and then we can really get this show on the road and begin counting down the days until December!

Hope you are all having a nice long weekend! I wish you all a belter of a good time!

“LIVE FREE. RIDE FREE. DIE FREE!!!”

My love and always appreciation,

‘SECRET PROJECT’ EXCLUSIVE REVEAL…

Hey guys! I know, two posts in one day!!! But I have quite a lot to share!

You all know that I have two series'; The Sweet Home Series and The Hades Hangmen Series.

Next year I will be focusing heavily on a YA Fantasy Trilogy, so that means that I’ll have quite a few series’ going at once. That’s a lot, and more than often I have an idea completely separate to these WIP’s and when I can’t stop thinking about that idea, I need to write it down. It’s that simple for me.

So this ‘secret project’ I’ve been working on for the last couple of months will be the first in a line of quick-read Standalone novels that I plan release every few months, in-between my Sweet Home and Hangmen commitments. There will be one exception to the standalone pattern, however… Eternally North: In His World will be released next year in amongst this line of novels.

The first standalone to be released is a Dark Contemporary Romance. The official release date for this novel is December 30th 2014, and is titled… ‘RAZE’.

The cover reveal for RAZE will be in a few weeks’ time and this cover is beyond AMAZING!!!! Arghhhhhh!!!!!!!

I hope this news pleases you all. I am strong believer that as an author, if you really feel an idea you should go with it, and for me, writing a few novels at once is the best way I work… it means I’m still productive even if I get a case of writers block, it keeps my thinking fresh and relative to whatever novel I’m creating and it also means you get more novels from me quicker!!!! ;)

So, here is the official synopsis for RAZE…

*****

To take back life, one must first face death…

One man stripped of his freedom, his morals… his life

Conditioned in captivity to maim, to kill and to slaughter, prisoner 818 becomes an unremorseful, unrivaled and unstoppable fighter in the ring. Violence is all he knows. Death and brutality are the masters of his fate

After years of incarceration in an underground hell, only one thought occupies his mind: revenge… bloody, slow and violent revenge

Revenge on the man who lied

Revenge on the man who wronged him

Revenge on the man who condemned him and turned him into… this: a rage-fueled killing machine. A monster void of humanity; a monster filled with hate.

And no one will stand in the way of getting what he wants.

 

One woman stripped of her freedom, her morals… her life.

Kisa Volkova is the only daughter of Kirill ‘The Silencer’ Volkov, head of the infamous ‘Triad’ bosses of New York’s Russian Bratva. Her life is protected. In reality, it’s a virtual prison. Her father’s savage treatment of his rivals and his lucrative and coveted underground gambling ring—The Dungeon—ensures too many enemies lurk at their door.

She dreams to be set free.

Kisa has known only cruelty and loss in her short life. As manager of her father’s death match enterprise, only grief and pain fill her days. Her mafiya boss father, in her world, rules absolute. And her fiancé, Alik Durov, is no better: The Dungeon’s five-time champion, a stone-cold killer, the treasured son of her father’s best friend, and her very own—and much resented—personal guard. Unrivaled in both strength and social standing, Alik controls every facet of Kisa’s life, dominates her every move; keeps her subdued and dead inside… then one night changes everything.

While working for her church—the only reprieve in her constant surveillance—Kisa stumbles across a tattooed, scarred, but stunningly beautiful homeless man on the streets. Something about him stirs feelings deep within her; familiar yet impossibly forbidden desires. He doesn’t talk. Doesn’t communicate with anyone. He’s a man beyond saving, and a man she must quickly forget… for both their sakes.

But when weeks later, out of the blue and to her complete surprise, he’s announced as the replacement fighter in The Dungeon, Kisa knows she’s in a whole lot of trouble. He’s built, ripped and lethally unforgiving to his opponents, leaving fear in his wake and the look of death in his eyes.

Kisa becomes obsessed with him. Yearns for him. Craves his touch. Needs to possess this mysterious man…

… this man they call Raze.

 

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Contains explicit sexual situations, excessive violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and mature topics.

Recommended for age 18 years and up*

Whew! Hope you guys are as excited for this novel as I am!

HEART RECAPTURED (HADES HANGMEN, #2) SYNOPSIS EXCLUSIVE!!!

Hey all!!!

Okay, the time has come for me to reveal the Heart Recaptured (Hades Hangmen, #2) synopsis.

I am writing like crazy to complete Heart Recaptured, and have finally given the novel the official release date of DECEMBER 2nd 2014.

I am so in LOVE with this novel and I am very excited for you all to read it in December and see the amazing front cover in only a few short weeks…

I will also be creating an official HADES HANGMEN FAN PAGE… THE HANGMEN HARLOTS!!! There’s a reason for the name, which will make sense the more you read the series! I am trying to find a spot between writing like a bitch and being a wife to create this, but I promise it’s on its way! I hope to see you all there so we can talk all things Hangmen!

So, without further ado, I give you… Heart Recaptured (Hades Hangmen, #2).

***

Even salvation can be delivered through the love of the damned…

Beauty can be a curse.

Faith can be a cage.

Only love can set you free.

A few long weeks after being reluctantly ripped from the comforting embrace of her sacred prophet’s religious commune—the only life she has ever known—a terrified Delilah is thrust into a world enveloped by evil and swimming in sin.

Steadfastly devout in her faith, and retaining the deep belief that her soul is innately tarnished as a branded ‘Cursed woman of Eve’, Delilah is determined to find her way home to her people in The Order, and away from the corrupt and damned outlaw motorcycle club—The Hades Hangmen—who hold her at their secluded compound for her protection—a ‘protection’ she strongly resents.

Delilah yearns to return home, convinced that only amongst her own people, and under the holy guidance of the Lord’s revealed prophet, can her Satan-spawned soul can be truly saved. Conditioned her entire life to believe she is a witch… a life-long temptress… the devil’s whore… Delilah increasingly resents her beautiful face, her shapely body and her sensuous effect on men. But when a man of the motorcycle club—a deeply sinful yet stunningly beautiful man—is charged with her care, Delilah begins to see that this dangerous and moralless sinner from the ‘outside’ may offer her something she did not know could truly exist: unconditional love.

Kyler ‘Ky’ Willis loves his life: a daily abundance of brotherhood, liquor, the freedom of the open-road and—best of all—his pick of hot women. Raised a biker brat and now VP of the most notorious MC in the States, Ky has no shortage of club sluts warming his bed; a situation he takes full advantage of… until a certain blonde enters his life… a gorgeous pilgrim-blonde he can’t get out of his head… a pilgrim-blonde he and his club recently-rescued from some backward religious cult… and a pilgrim-blonde he’s been ordered to keep the hell away from and his whorish hands off.

When yet another in a lengthy line of drunken blunders forces Ky to reluctantly take charge of the pilgrim-blonde’s care, he realizes that there could be more to this woman than just supermodel looks and a stacked set of tits. He begins to see that she could be the woman who could do the impossible—tame his wild ways and capture his reluctant heart.

But the unyielding bonds of Lilah’s past are strong, her ‘people’ determined and, with a new Prophet in charge and hell bent on revenge, they are mightily reluctant to let her go…

 

Dark Contemporary Romance.

SWEET FALL TEASER #2

Hey, y’all!

Okay, here’s teaser #2 of Sweet Fall!

Only 8 days to go until Sweet Fall releases… WHAT???

So without further ado, I present Sweet Fall:

***

The truck rocked as Austin jumped up with me and he ran his hand through his hair, almost in nerves, as he stood beside me, staring at the view that had me so entranced.

“Austin… the moon. Why’s it so big?” I whispered in awe.

The orange-hued moon seemed impossibly large, so impossibly close. So close that I could almost touch it; it’s hazy reflection spanning the entire width of the river before us as it sat happily on the horizon. “It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

“It’s a Supermoon. The moon’s at its closest orbit to the Earth tonight. It’s size and closeness is an illusion to us here on Earth.”

“How?”

“When the moon’s that low on the horizon, it appears huge to us, but it’s no bigger than what we see every other night.” Austin pointed to moon before us and I couldn’t help but blink up at him surprise.

“Is this why we’ve come so far outta town. So we could see it in this setting?”

Austin fidgeted in embarrassment and nodded his head in one curt movement. “Supermoons don’t happen often and to really appreciate it, you need to get away from city and all the light pollution.” He then gestured to the stars above. A sky so full of diamonds that it didn’t seem like there was any room for the plain ol’ dark night sky. Every part was packed full of stars. I’d never seen anything like it.

“Austin… It’s beautiful. I… I can’t believe what I’m seeing. It’s like a dream.”

Feeling his intense stare on me, I immediately looked down, blushing. Austin cleared his throat and took a seat on the blanket, opening his large bag of barbeque.

I joined him on the blanket and wrapped my arms around my legs. Taking a huge steak, Austin leaned back against the side of the truck and met my eyes. I couldn’t help but smile.

“What?” Austin asked warily.

“I would never have thought you would be into all this.” I gestured to the sky. “Astronomy. Supermoons, stars.”

Austin seemed embarrassed and shrugged. Nothing more said in response.

“You sure you don’t want any of this?” Austin held out the large bag of food and I shook my head. Austin tossed the bag to the side, sucked the juices of his fingers and tipped his head up to enjoy the view. I did the same.

“How’s your momma?”

Austin’s breathing hitched for a moment, but then replied, “Still in hospital. But I saw her today and she’s feeling a little better.”

“I’m sorry that she’s so sick, Austin. Sometimes life’s just not fair.”

Austin dipped his head to look my way and asked, “Yeah? And how do you know life ain’t fair, Pix?”

Every muscle tensed at his question. I tried to relax, but I could tell by Austin’s inquisitive expression that he’d caught onto my apprehension. “I just do, Austin. What you see on the surface isn’t always the reality.”

There was an awkward pregnant pause, then Austin said, “You’re preaching to the converted, Pix.”

Austin waved his hand and sprawled out on his back. “Get down here. The view’s better.”

Licking my lips in nerves, I slowly slid onto my back and gazed at the night sky.

Austin pointed his fingers at a pattern of stars. “The Big Dipper.”

I followed his index finger as he mapped out the constellation.

“Wow,” I whispered, the moment feeling surreal.

“Ursa Minor.” Austin continued and I followed his demonstration with rapt attention. “Ursa Major, Cassiopeia, Draco…” And he went on, guiding me like Virgil through the complex ocean of stars. It didn’t take me long to stop following his hand pointing up at the sky, and to study the carefree, joyous expression on his usually hard and emotionless face.

He was beautiful… and there was so much more to him than I ever imagined.

Taking a deep breath, Austin lowered his hand, his fingers brushing over mine. A contented sigh slipped through his full lips and I felt weightless as he began making patterns on the back of my hand with his fingertip. He was entranced as he looked down and watched the motion of his caress.

“Why do you love the stars so much?” I whispered, trying to calm the frantic shivers shooting down my arm.

Niente puo’ essere paragonato alla bellezza delle stelle.” The Italian from his lips was as smooth as velvet.

“What does that mean?”

Nothing compares to the beauty of stars.”

There we go, folks!

More in a few days!!!

SWEET FALL TEASER #1

We are on the countdown, folks!

Only THREE weeks left until Sweet Fall is released… YAY!!!!!!

Over the next few weeks, I will be releasing teasers here on my website.

So, here we go, folks, Teaser #1: First meeting:

****

Tailing at the rear, just taking in the scene, I was left alone. It was strange to see the stadium so quiet, kinda apocalyptic, like the aftermath of some great catastrophic event. Plastic red Solo cups were scattered in the stands, confetti strewn on the grass, and the thick smell of stale beer clung to the humid air.

“Kinda weird, huh?” a deep Bama-accented voice said from beside me.

Dropping my poms in shock and laying a hand on my chest, I lost my breath. Catching a flash of a Crimson shirt, I looked up, blocking the bright sun from my eyes with my hand, and suddenly lost my breath again.

“Sorry, what?” I asked in a quiet voice, tipping my neck right back trying to make out the guy’s face.

When shade hit, he appeared. Austin Carillo, wide receiver, number eighty-three.

Carillo stepped closer to me from his secluded spot beside the players’ tunnel and the stands. “This. The quiet after the storm.” He gestured to the empty stadium with a wave of his hand. “It’s my favorite part of the game.”

I followed the action of his hand. “Not the three touchdowns you scored?”

The corners of his mouth hooked up in a reluctant smirk. I’d seen Carillo around campus from time to time over the past three years, and I think it was first time I’d ever seen him crack anything close to a smile. I wasn’t surprised. He was like me—darker, quieter, kept himself to himself.

Austin Carillo was the Italian bad boy of UA: Six-foot-four, beautifully olive skin, piercings galore, black ear gauges, neck-to-toe tattoos, dark hair and the darkest of brown eyes.

I felt myself blush. If I had a type, he’d be it. But I didn’t date, and from what I’d heard, neither did he.

“Nah. It’s this. The replay of the game in my mind, the making of memories on this field.”

A sense of peace floated over me at what he described. “I know exactly what you mean,” I replied wistfully and inhaled the smell of greasy food, churned-up grass… victory.

Austin glanced back to the tunnel and, without another word, began to saunter away. I stared back out onto the field and sighed in relief… I’d done it. I’d actually made it through a game unscathed.

The voice inside my mind hadn’t had the strength to spoil it.

“It’s about fuckin’ time, by the way!” I suddenly heard and looked behind me, straight at Austin Carillo.

“Are you talking to me?” I asked in confusion, checking around us to see if anyone else was here.

Austin smirked in a deliciously dark way and gestured to my dark hair and makeup. “Yeah, I’m talking to you. It’s about time a cheerleader ’round here broke the mold. It’s good to have another one of us freaks on this team.”

One of us freaks? I thought, as I watched him disappear into the change rooms. Lifting my hand, I ran my fingers over my pale face, dark kohl-rimmed eyes, black lipstick and couldn’t help but smile… one of us freaks

Seeing the clean up crew enter the stadium, I quickly bent down, plucked a piece of grass from the field and held up the single blade. It was my tradition. A piece of memorabilia from every game I’d ever cheered… But this would be my first in four years.

The symbol of my new life.

Sweet Fall Fleur-de-lis

There you go, guys! Much more to come! This is just a lil’ ‘whet the appetite’ excerpt to kick the teasers off…

SWEET FALL SYNOPSIS!!!

Hey guys!

The months are counting down the Sweet Fall release date (August 26th!). I will have the cover reveal to you at the end of June, and right now, I am sooo excited to share with you the official blurb/synopsis for the third novel in the Sweet Home Series.

This novel has turned out to be so much more than I ever expected—dark, gritty, and a complete emotional roller coaster (some of it from my own experience). You will see more of your favourite characters from Sweet Home/Rome (yes, Rome and Molly!), and you’ll most certainly fall hopelessly in love with UA’s two most troubled characters, Lexi and Austin. Sweet Fall, however, can also be read as a stand-alone novel.

So, with out further ado, the synopsis for Sweet Fall…

***

From the USA Today Best Selling Sweet Home Series, comes Sweet Fall; a tale of heartache, beating the odds and finding strength in the most unlikeliest of places.

We all have secrets.

Secrets well buried.

Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.

Lexington “Lexi” Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve. When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, she falls straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year’s NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law—until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track. But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman, a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

Can two troubled souls find a lasting peace together? Or will they finally succumb to the demons threatening to destroy them?

New Adult/Contemporary Romance novel—contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

Can be read as a stand-alone novel.

*** 

I hope you’re all as excited for this novel as me!

As always, teasers will come closer to the release date, and the cover will be out soon… it’s solo beautiful.

Much Love, Folks!
