NOW AVAILABLE: Inspired By You

It’s RELEASE DAY! Whitley and Maxton have been released out into the wild for your pleasure! I know it took me longer than normal to come out with this latest Love in the City novel, and I just want to thank you so much for being patient with me! I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you’ll leave me some feedback in the form of a review no matter how you feel about the story! Inspired By You’s soundtrack and awareness page are now up on my website!

Thank you again for your love and support of the Love in the City series! It means so much to me! Happy reading!

Fame made him selfish.

Hollywood heartthrob, Maxton Waters, has just been named the World’s Sexiest Man Alive. Women fantasize about him. Men want to be him. The paparazzi continuously follow him. His ego is definitely larger than his heart.

Poverty made her grateful.

Whitley Gonzalez has made a life for herself after growing up in and out of homeless shelters. Now a hardworking nurse, she spends her spare time raising her son alone and giving back to the community that helped raise her.

But when Max is sentenced to hours of community services and placed under the single mom’s thumb, working together proves harder than they ever expected, inspiring an unlikely love in the city.

*Can be read as a standalone*

Candy at Prisoners of Print – “Love. Adore. Smitten for. Crazy about. Infatuated with.”

Author Kelly Siskind – “The chemistry between Whitley and Max was stellar. Fun banter.”

Britt Red Hatter Book Blog – “If you’re looking for something that gives you pure heartfelt sweetness with the perfect amount of heat, look no further!”

Bom Bidi Giveaway

I want to start off by apologizing for not posting in a LONG freaking time! It’s been months and I’m so sorry! I’d like to rectify that by giving away FIVE $5.00 Amazon gift cards to FIVE lucky readers! To enter, just comment on this post with your email! I’ll randomly select the winners, so watch your emails!

I know you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up, and sadly I can’t say it’s been writing tons of books, though I have been working on Whitley and Max’s story (yes, they’re next, and Cash’s story is last…you know the saying, saving the best for last!) I’ve moved into a different place, and I’m happy to say that Gunner and I have adjusted nicely and we’re loving it! I’ve also been busy with my family and friends during the holidays. I had a brother get married in Mexico (this ginger is never going there again) as well as all the normal holidays. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year (gah! I’ve been gone too long, never again, I swear!). Again, sorry!

I also had my first book signing of 2017 in Maryland at the Rebels Hit the Road event! It was a blast getting to meet so many readers and hang out with my team of editors and fellow authors! Casey Peeler has the best accent ever, so much so that I found myself trying to mimic her (I love it)! It was also so incredibly nice to catch up with Trudy Stiles (I hadn’t seen her since NYC)! I fangirled hard too. First off, Debra Anastasia turned me into a rotten carrot top with one of her maxi pads (she ran out of the color orange), but I felt like framing it anyway because it’s Debra Freaking Anastasia. So I returned the favor by giving her a paperback of Pleasured By You that I screwed up while signing books for a reader (so Debra Anastasia has Fletcher now: fangirl). Then Jennifer Armentrout and I bumped into each other when we were getting together to take our author group picture before the signing. I may have swore to myself to never wash my right shoulder in case her awesome writing vibes transferred over to me during said run-in. I’m sure she doesn’t remember it at all but I do; that’s all that matters right? Ha! Like I said, total fangirl moment!

We also went to see Fifty Shades Darker while in Maryland and it was AMAZING! I’m currently jamming to the FSD soundtrack while I write this post. If you haven’t seen it, get out of the house and to your nearest movie theater!

My next two signings are in March. I have Kinky in Kansas City on March 4th, and Authors in the City in Raleigh, North Carolina on March 11th! The lineups are absolutely stellar! I’m already fangirling over the other authors attending each event. If I run into Laurelin Page and Sawyer Bennett and my other faves, I’ll tell you all about the awesomeness! Can’t wait! Hope to see you there!

In Love in the City news, like I said above, I’ve been working on Max and Whitley’s story. I know most of you are excited for Cash’s story, and I am too because he’s amazing. But I felt like I needed to give Max and Whitley a story. Remember how the Friends writers never gave Joey a proper happy ending romance? That’s how I feel about Max and Whitley. We all kind of hated Max in Fantasized By You when he kissed Harper! We all hated Whitley for a brief second in Cherished By You when Tessa thought she was doing Justin! Now, they’re getting their own story so we can fall in love with them because I believe they deserve a redeeming story; they deserve to be part of the Love in the City group. So, you’ll definitely get the whole LITC gang like always, and they’ll help Whitley and Max figure out love in Inspired By You.

Cash’s story will be last because I’ve saved the best for last. I know you’re saying to yourself, how can he be the last, the best, Steph? But you just wait. You’ve already met his woman in Challenged By You. I’m so excited to write his story, Changed By You, and wrap-up the Love in the City series in the best way possible. But the Love in the City world won’t end with Cash’s story. I’ve promised several readers spin-offs and I will deliver.

Book7-front-ebook-amazon

I’ve also plotted a new series, The Cutler Family Quartet. It will be a complete 180 from the Love in the City series, and I’m really excited to give you another group of characters to love. My cover designer starts working on their covers at the end of March! Be sure to join Nuss’ Navy to get the first exclusive look at the covers and the series as a whole.

Again, I’m so SORRY for being away for so long! I promise to post more often and keep you updated! Thank you for staying with me! I have some other awesome news I’ll be able to share Wednesday, March 1st! So stay tune! Remember to enter the Amazon gift card giveaway by commenting on this post with your email below! If you’re coming to the two signings I have left this year, come see me and my mom at my table! Happy reading!

Challenged By You is LIVE!

Hey everyone,

Happy release day! Paige’s day has finally come, and her story is now available on all platforms, even debuting at #90 on iBooks’ Romance Top Paid 100! So, if you haven’t yet, please check out the links below to get your copy of Challenged By You today! The reviews have been fantastic so far, and I cannot wait to read more of what you all think of Paige and Drake’s story. I put honest to God tears into writing their story, but I can say that it is truly my best work to date; I’m very proud of it. Check out what others are saying about it below, and don’t forget to head on over to my Facebook page to enter the giveaway!

BLOGGER FEEDBACK:

“Challenged by You is one of those stories that will remain with you for a long time. It is going to burrow into your heart, break it just a little, and make it swell with love. Steph Nuss tackles a difficult topic in this book and she does it beautifully.” – Malissa at Reads All the Books

“It’s an emotional roller coaster, both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I experienced a gamut of emotions throughout this book including laughter and tears. I read this book in one sitting, and literally could not put it down even when I had tears streaming down my face.” Kathryn at Ebook Indulgence

“If you are looking for a book that will cause you to cry and I mean UGLY cry this is your book.You can enjoy this book with a cup of coffee in a nice custom wood furniture room. My heart was an emotional mess while reading this book. Was it worth it? 100% yes and I don’t generally enjoy books that gut me.” – Venus at Bedknobs and Book Babes

I’d like to extend a HUGE thanks to Southern Belle Promotions for hosting my release day blitz and all the book bloggers who participated in helping make today such a special occasion by spreading the word about Challenged By You! The blog tour will start September 4th! I’m so grateful for the SBP girls for putting everything together and making sure the book bloggers have everything they need, but if I missed personally thanking one of you, please know your post didn’t go unnoticed and that I greatly appreciate it!

I’d also like to thank my sailors in my Nuss’ Navy group on Facebook! I spent the whole day working at my other job, and you all strived to share my release in places I wouldn’t have even thought about sharing it, so thank you for being the best group of readers a girl can rely on when she’s working to make that money! It means so much to me! If you’re not part of the group and would like to be click here!

Lastly, to you, the readers, thank you so much for taking a chance on Paige’s story. For wanting her story be told so much that you sent me encouraging messages over the past year asking about her. I know it’s a tough one to read, as you can tell from the snippets of the reviews above and from what I’ve already mentioned about it. If you’ve gone through something similar to Paige or know someone who has or simply fear the same fears, just know that I wrote this story for you, so you could have a character you could relate to, to laugh and cry with even when times get tough.

Happy Reading!

Xo,

Steph

I’m so excited for you all to read Paige’s story. Thank you again for being so patient with me. I’m so grateful for your endless support. Her story took time, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did while writing it. It is emotional, but I think I’ve hinted enough in the previous four books for all my Love in the City fans to know that Paige’s story would be a heartbreaking one. So, I will warn you: have a hanky around, because a tissue may not suffice. (I actually had a handkerchief beside me the entire time I worked on it). But I promise, your heart will be full once you read, “The End.”

Happy Reading,

Steph

Thank you so much for always making this day extra special for me by participating! I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend! My dad has only read a short story I wrote about a one-night stand, and his reaction was simply shutting the book and putting it back down, never to pick it up again. But he supports the hell out of me and tells everyone about his daughter’s books, so he’s the best dad a girl could ask for, supporting her dreams even if they stun him sometimes!
