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

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Love in the City Series Tour

SeriesTour

Today kicks off my Love in the City Series Tour! First, I’d like to thank Melanie at Book Empire Promotions for hosting and organizing the event! Secondly, I want to thank all the book bloggers participating in the tour. Book bloggers help get the word out about authors like myself and our books. So, I’m very grateful to all of you who are taking the time to post about my Love in the City series and/or review the books. It truly means the world to me!

The Love in the City series is about a group of friends looking for love in New York City. Each book is about a different couple and their story is told from both the female and male POVs. The books can be read as standalones, but you’ll find out that each book picks up where the previous one left off. I decided to do it that way so that my readers didn’t miss anything in the lives of the Love in the City gang (meet the gang by clicking here). I know as a reader myself, I always wonder, why didn’t the author give us an epilogue? What about this or that? So, that’s why there are no epilogues in my series, because I promise you, what you want in an epilogue will eventually happen in the series. Each book ends in a happily ever after though, so no worries, they are no cliffhangers! I’ve also done something special with the series: all of the book covers are a different color that represents an awareness that’s featured in each book. I think it’s important as a writer to not only tell a great story, but also have an important message behind it. So, I hope that you fall in love with the story and its characters and take away the message behind it all, too.

Wanted By You (Love in the City, #1)

WBY copy

Carter was captivated by Ellyson Evans the moment he laid eyes on her, but she was the one girl who didn’t beg for his attention.

He wanted her.

Ellyson vowed to never fall in love, because love can destroy you, but then she met Carter Jennings.

She wanted him.

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.

Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.

They want each other.

But love in the city is never quite that easy.

WBYTeaser

Fantasized By You (Love in the City, #2)

FBY_Cover_front

Celebrity fashion designer, Harper Jennings is only months away from turning thirty, and her dream of living a happily ever after has yet to come true.

She’s given up on her fantasy.

Personal trainer and gym owner, Maverick Jones isn’t thrilled about having a designer mentoring in his new clinic, but after meeting the brunette beauty face-to-face, he dreams of having his way with her.

He’s ready to turn his fantasy into reality.

But when their fantasies collide, love in the city becomes more complicated than they ever imagined.

Breast Cancer Awareness

10609455_292679967589162_7650136983460614506_nI’m so honored to be involved in Sydney Jamesson’s Breast Cancer Awareness Event. If you’ve read Wanted By You, you know Ellyson lost her mom to breast cancer, and I’m sure you’ve personally known someone who has fought against it, is fighting it now, or will fight it. They’re all warriors and we’re taking this month to honor them. During the month of October, I’d like to invite you to please join our Facebook event for weekly giveaways and information on early detection and prevention. It’s important for us to stay proactive and never give up hope for a cure. While cancer is a very terrifying disease, it’s a disease we cannot ignore. For more information, please check out my awareness page on women’s cancer on ways to stay proactive in your health. Any kind of mesothelioma legal consultaion is provided by asbestos attorneys, and if you’d like to donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, click here

In more breast cancer awareness news, authors Riley Mackenzie are spreading awareness by giving away a book a day during the month of October. Be sure to like their page and help spread awareness! 

One of my favorite authors, Tara Sivec, also just released another book in her Chocoholics series titled, Tattoos and TaTas. During the month of October, all of her proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness. It’s currently on sale for $1.99, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. I love Tara and her characters, and this story is very near and dear to her personally, so please pick up a copy of Tattoos and TaTas today and help support breast cancer awareness!
