My mother instilled in me my love for reading. She first introduced me to the wonderful Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb books as well as the hilarious Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series. I’m so thrilled to share such a wonderful hobby with my mom. When my grandma (my mom’s mom) passed away a few years ago, my mom and I found a poem my grandma wrote back when she was in high school. Reading it and knowing my grandmother wrote it encouraged me even more to pursue my dream of becoming a writer. Thanks to my mom, her poem is now framed and hung up in my bedroom (aka my writing cave) where I can look at it everyday and know that my love for writing isn’t just in my heart but also in my blood. I hope all of you take the time tomorrow to celebrate your mothers, even if they’re no longer physically with you, because without them you wouldn’t be here.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there! I hope you all have a fantastic day tomorrow!

Xo,

Steph

A while back, I had the rest of the covers for the Love in the City series done by the brilliant Michelle at IndieBookCovers, and I can’t keep them a secret anymore; they’re too beautiful not to share!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Love in the City gang and myself! We’re looking forward to sharing more fun and love stories with you in 2015! Check out the rest of the covers and be sure to add the books to your Goodreads to-be-read lists! 

ebook-amazon

One night of pleasure turns into a summer full of lust.

Fletcher Haney owns several businesses all over New York City, gaining him access to tons of beautiful women. He has no intentions of stopping his womanizing ways, until he sees her again.

She’s the ultimate heartbreaker he can’t forget.

Pastry chef bombshell, Bayler Jennings knows she can have any guy she wants, but when her only memorable one-night stand confronts her, she breaks all of her rules.

He’s the love ‘em and leave ‘em flavor she craves.

But as the seasons change, this two-of-a-kind pair fights falling in love in the city, and they’ll soon realize that with pleasure always comes pain.

Book4-front-ebook-amazon“Move in with me,” he said. 

Being cherished is how Tessa Wilder always imagined falling in love. But for years, she’s always gone for the wrong guys. Now that she’s fallen for one of the good ones, she fears rejection.

“I can’t,” she replied.

Justin Jameson quit looking for a woman after being used so many times for his brains. A bit of an introvert and completely oblivious to women’s advances, he can’t even see that his friend cherishes everything about him.

When Tessa needs a place to stay, Justin’s the first to offer her a room. Hearts are opened; feelings are ventured. They’ll finally know what it’s like to be cherished in the city until one moment threatens the relationship they’ve built.

“I can’t lose you.”

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

Book5-front-ebook-amazonPaige Abram never faces a problem she can’t solve until her high school sweetheart comes back into her life, and she’s bombarded with memories of their relationship. His presence is almost suffocating, but he’s still just as beautiful as she remembers.

His heart beat differently after its first love.

The moment Drake Wilkins sees her again, the numbness he’s felt since he walked away disappears. But she’s not the same girl he fell in love with back then. She’s colder, not as easy going; she’s a complete stranger now.

Her heart nearly quit after its first loss.

When a funeral has them returning to their hometown, a secret she’s kept from him all these years is revealed. She expects him to push her away but he doesn’t; he tests her just like when they were kids.

Their hearts resuscitate, but in the city, their love will face its biggest challenge of all: survival.

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

Book6-front-ebook-amazonFame 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.

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

Book7-front-ebook-amazonHe’s the bachelor who swore he’d never fall in love.

Cash Donovan interviews musicians on a weekly basis. He’s used to sharing the studio with fame and entertaining his fans. So, when he lands an interview with Grammy Award-winner, Lennox, he doesn’t think anything of it.

She’s the rocker who’s satisfied with being single.

Lennox has made a name for herself, and now she’s traveling the United States to meet her fans. When her manager books her first radio interview, she couldn’t be more excited to meet the notorious radio host, Cash Donovan.

But during their interview, the conversation turns flirtatious, and he’s is urged by fans to ask her out on a date. He obliges and she agrees with one condition: don’t fall for her.

In this heartfelt, hilarious conclusion to the Love in the City series, New York’s favorite, smooth-talking radio host has a change of heart thanks to America’s rock chick, but will he be able to persuade her into forever with him? Tune in to 101.7 WLVE to find out.

#GIVEAWAY Merry Bookmas: Steph’s Six Days of Christmas

XmasFB_Banner

Happy Holidays, everyone!

This December, I’ve teamed up with six bloggers who have been with me from the very beginning to do a Christmas giveaway for all of you. Even before my first book came out, these girls were cheering me on and helping spread the word about me and my Love in the City series. They’ve put me in touch with so many other bloggers and readers I’ve become friends with now, too. They’ve made teaser pics and hosted giveaways for me. They’ve been involved with blog tours and my series tour. They’ve helped give me insight to New York City (the setting of the Love in the City series) since I live in Kansas and have yet to visit! They’ve beta read for me. They’ve left honest, beautiful reviews for both books that put a smile on my face. Simply put, they’ve taken time out of their busy lives to take a chance on me and my books, to promote them without asking for anything in return. They’ve seriously made 2014 a great year for me.

So, as a way to say thank you for all their support and to give back, I’ve given each blog a signed paperback set of the first two books in the Love in the City series to give away to their followers (Wanted By You & Fantasized By You). Six lucky readers will win both books! All you have to do is enter the giveaway below by clicking on the photo and following their blogs, following them on Twitter, and/or tweeting about the giveaway!

Xmas

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday and an even better New Year! Thank you so much for making 2014 a great debut year for my writing! Your support truly means the world to me! This is only the beginning, folks! I have so many ideas floating around this crazy mind of mine; I can’t wait to share all my stories with you. 

If you’re new to the Love in the City series, I truly hope you check it out and enjoy it; I’d love to hear what you think of the gang! If you’re already a fan and can’t wait for more, I promise I’m working hard to give you everything you want! 😉 Stay tuned: I may just share the covers for the rest of the series and their blurbs soon! They’re too pretty to keep a secret much longer. Comment below with whose cover and blurb you’re most excited for: Tessa and Justin’s book, Paige’s book, Max’s book, or Cash’s book! 

And as always, please share the giveaway with your book-lovin’ friends and spread the holiday cheer!

Xo,

Steph

Seven 11 Blog Hop + Veterans Day

amflag

Not only would I like to wish everyone a Happy Veterans Day, but I’d also like to share a little snippet from Pleasured By You since today also happens to be Seven 11 Blog Hop day, where a bunch of us authors share seven lines from our work-in-progresses or some of our previous work on the 11th of each month. So today, I’m giving you a bit of Fletcher Haney. He’s so different from Carter Jennings and Maverick Jones that I’ve easily found myself falling in love with him the more I write his and Bayler’s story. (I would like to note though that this teaser hasn’t been edited so it is subject to change.) Here you go:

She was my target, and now I was hers. Happy fucking New Year’s.

She stopped beside me and studied my face for a moment before the sexy smirk on her lips pulled up into a full, killer smile. “You’ve been watching me since you walked into the lounge.”

So, you noticed. Well played, woman. Stepping closer to her, I tilted my mouth toward her ear so only she could hear me, and then I reached out and brushed my hand down the curve of her bare spine. “You’re practically half naked in the dead of winter. Of course, I’ve been watching you.”

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47And check out the gorgeous cover for Pleasured By You (Love in the City, #3) done by Michelle at IndieBookCovers:

ebook-amazon

As you know by now, the colors of my covers in the series all represent an awareness or cause. Today is extra special because of Veterans Day. There’s a new character I introduce to the Love in the City series in Pleasured By You who lost his father during the war in Iraq. Not only does the yellow on the cover represent hope, but it also represents supporting our troops and their families. I want to give a special thanks to all our Veterans and their families and to the all the people and their families currently serving our country. God bless each and every one of you.

Get the first two books in the Love in the City series now (books can be read as standalones):

Price drop: Fantasized By You (LITC, #2) + Cute Puppy Pictures

It’s opening pheasant season weekend, and my dog, Gunner, is extremely gun-shy (ironic, huh?). So, while I have a 100-lb labrador glued to my side all weekend (cute, huh?), I thought I would post about the price drop on the second book in my Love in the City series, Fantasized By You.

11122760

If you haven’t had a chance to read Harper and Maverick’s story, now is the time, especially since I’m in the middle of writing the third book in the series! The price was originally $4.99, but now it’s $3.99 on Amazon, iBooks, B&N, and Kobo! So, I hope you check it out and let your fellow book lovers know about the price drop; I’d greatly appreciate it! They don’t need to read Wanted By You (Love in the City, #1) to read Fantasized By You. They can be read as standalones.

fby2

In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll just be over here hanging out with these cute pups and making sure the bigger one doesn’t have an anxiety attack over gunshots. Did I mention we got a black lab puppy? His name is Stag. Sound familiar? 🙂

Book Bloggers Are The Shit

There, I said it. Book bloggers are the shit. But most of us already knew that. They take the time to read and post about our books, and they do it all for the love of reading, for no compensation whatsoever. They have lives of their own. They have families and friends and a lot of other shit they could be doing besides reading our books and spreading the word about them, but that’s exactly what they do because they love books.

I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I was by the participation from the book bloggers who posted during my Love in the City Series Tour last week. I will forever be thankful for each and every one of you who took the time to help me out. Like I said, you have tons of other things you could’ve been doing that are way more important than me, so the fact that you took a chance on my books and you helped spread the word about them by posting reviews and promotional posts on your blogs, your Facebook pages, and/or your Twitter timelines, truly means the world to me. Your honesty in your reviews and feedback continuously molds the writer in me.

With that said, I hope you know that I’m always here for you, too. I really do believe that we should support one another, and that goes beyond just donating to your giveaways whenever you hit a milestone (though I don’t mind donating so please feel free to ask). What I mean is, I know some of you were ill or had family emergencies or other things going on in your lives, and I appreciate you taking the time to message me and let me know why you couldn’t post on the day you signed up and that your post was going to be delayed. Life happens, and I completely understand and want you to know that you can always message me for support. I just hope you know that you could never disappoint me or let me down. You’ve willingly gave me your support, and I’m here to give you mine right back. Some of you messaged me in regards to the subject matter of my books, relating to the same issues my characters go through, and I thank you for sharing your story with me. The whole idea behind my books and my characters’ stories is to raise awareness, and by sharing your own stories and spreading the word about my books, you’re doing just that. So, thank you for being awesome, for raising awareness, for encouraging others to read and sharing your love for books, and for simply being yourself. I look forward to getting to know each of you better in the future!

Pleasured By You Teaser + Seven 11 Blog Hop

Seven 11 blog hop

Hey everyone,

It’s that time again! Today marks our third Seven 11 Blog Hop, and I hope you’re all enjoying our posts! I decided to pick seven lines from my WIP (work-in-progress) for this month’s blog hop. Unlike the previous hops, these seven lines have not been edited, so they are more than likely going to change. But here’s your first glimpse into the mind of Bayler Jennings! She’s a lot different than Elly and Harper, and I’ve been having a blast writing her and Fletcher’s story! Pleasured By You (Love in the City, #3) …

Seven11

Please add Pleasured By You (Love in the City, #3) to your Goodreads to-be-read list if you haven’t already! I don’t have a release date yet, and it will be awhile before I do, but once I have one, you’ll be the first to know!

Seven 11 Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Seven 11 blog hopWho’s ready for a Fantasized By You teaser!? It’s that time again! The Seven 11 Blog Hop is on the go, a hop where a group of authors post seven lines from one of their books, and today I’m featuring Fantasized By You (Love in the City, #2)! Here are your seven lines:

“You’re gonna tell me one of your fantasies?”
“Yes, and then you’re gonna tell me yours.”
“Okay, let’s hear it.” I smiled, completely mesmerized by the idea. Just knowing he had fantasies made me all gooey inside.
“Hmm, all right, let’s see,” he said, dipping his fingers into the waistband of my panties. “Since the day we met in my office, I keep having this fantasy where you walk into my office and lock the door. You’re wearing high heels and a long coat, but underneath, all you have on is this lace.”
