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!”

I also didn’t want to interrupt anyone’s time with Mr. Grey himself. Happy Early Birthday, Christian; it’s a honor to share a day with you!

Anyway, back to the giveaway . . . I’m giving away this cute crossbody filled with signed copies of my first three books to one lucky reader! The giveaway is opened internationally.

Seriously, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making another year so special for me! After obtaining the rights to my books and self-publishing them, I was terrified I wouldn’t be able to do this on my own, but I quickly realized I’m not alone in this. I have my readers, and it’s because of you that I get to do what I love and share my characters’ stories with you!

Cheers to many more years!

 

Seven 11 Blog Hop: Vanilla, It’s Too Blah

With the release of Pleasured By You (Love in the City, #3) coming up on March 20th (NINE MORE DAYS), I’ve decided to post a teaser from Fletcher Haney for my Seven 11 Blog Hop post. If you’re new to my blog, the Seven 11 Blog Hop is where a group of authors post seven-line teasers from their current work-in-progress or published work on the 11th of each month. So, please be sure to check out the other authors’ posts! You may just find a new author you love!

Pleasured By You teaser

“What!” Bayler objected, glaring at me. “You can’t just have vanilla. It’s too blah. Pick again.”

I laughed and turned to her. It was kind of cute watching her get all excited over her creation. She’d baked and decorated Carter and Elly’s wedding cake, and it’d looked like a work of art. But I couldn’t let her know that. “Then, Ms. Easy Bake, what do you suggest?”

“Hey, I’m no Easy Bake,” she retorted, smacking my bicep. She glanced at the tray again and pointed to a couple of pieces. “Give us two of the white chocolate peanut butter.”

For more teasers from Pleasured By You, join Nuss’ Navy today!

Pleasured By You is available for preorder on Amazon and iBooks, and you don’t need to read the first two books in the series to enjoy it!

Bayler

“So you have a toothbrush here now?” I asked curiously, in my least bitchiest tone. But that was my bathroom. How could I not notice his things starting to takeover? Okay, it was just a toothbrush but still. What’s next? His clothes needing a drawer? His guy things taking up half of my closet? No. Not happening.

“No,” he said, smiling back at me. “This is your toothbrush.”

“WHAT!” Jumping out of bed, I ran to the bathroom, pulled the brush out of his hands and noticed the pink and white handle, indicating it was in fact my toothbrush that he was using on his perfectly straight, pearly whites. “Why the hell are you using my toothbrush?! That is so gross!”

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!

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.”

Seven 11 Blog Hop

Seven 11 blog hop

I’m so excited to be part of the Seven 11 Blog Hop, and today marks our first hop! Eleven authors, including myself, are doing this blog hop where on the 11th of each month we post seven lines from one of our writing projects. It can be a published piece or a piece we’re currently working on. And since the first book in my Love in the City series, Wanted By You, is currently *FREE* on iBooks and Amazon for a limited time, I’ve decided to share seven lines from Carter and Ellyson’s story:

“The old wooden door creaked as it opened and a familiar sensation swept over me, making every nerve in my body stand up in alert and my teeth pull at my bottom lip. The beat in my chest thumped louder and louder, rattling every bone in my body, boiling every ounce of blood running through my system like a volcano getting ready to erupt.

And then I felt it again.

The fluttering from within.

The notorious butterflies that I hadn’t felt in the past five years were back, and only one guy had that kind of magic.”

The second book in the Love in the City series, Fantasized By You, releases on July 14th, so now is the perfect time to start the series if you haven’t yet! The series follows a group of friends looking for love in the city and each book is about a different couple, but you will continue to read about the whole gang in each book. I love them all too much to leave any of them out!
