EXCERPT: Inspired By You

We’re FOUR days away from the release of Inspired By You (Love in the City, #6)! I hope you’re as excited as I am! In celebration of the upcoming release, I’ve decided to share an excerpt of the story just for you! This snippet is from Whitley and her son, Zane! I had so much fun including a younger character in the story. Zane adds an innocence to the fun, lightheartedness you’ve come to expect from the Love in the City characters! Enjoy!

Inspired By You by Steph Nuss Copyright 2018

He entered his room with his back to me, rubbing his tired eyes. “I hope he calls you.”

What. Did. He. Just. Say?

It was late, so for a moment I thought I misheard him. Leaning against his doorjamb, I eyed him suspiciously. “What did you just say?”

He jumped up on his bed and pulled the covers down. “I said, ‘I hope Max calls you.’”

What’s he up to? I crossed my arms over my chest. “I doubt that will happen, bud. He doesn’t have my number.”

“Yes, he does,” he retorted truthfully, resting back against his pillows. “I gave it to him when he asked me for it.”

Gah! I’m going to kill Max Waters!

“He asked you for my phone number?” I asked, completely shocked that Max would go to such lengths to get my phone number.

“Yeah,” Zane said with a shrug. “He said he would ask you out on a date.”

So, this is what it feels like to be pimped out by your child?

Utterly embarrassing!

Part of me wished the wood flooring would open up and swallow me whole, but that’d leave Zane parentless and I couldn’t do that to him. He had no idea what he’d done tonight would embarrass me. He didn’t fully understand the concept of embarrassment yet, but I was definitely saving this moment in my brain to remember when he started dating. I’d get out every cute, naked baby picture of him I owned.

Inspired By You: Coming Soon

Yes, you read that title right! Inspired By You (Love in the City, #6) is releasing on May 10th, 2018! I’m so excited for you all to read Max and Whitley’s story! A single mom and the world’s Sexiest Man Alive. I love a great single parent story, and Whitley’s is so inspiring. As for Max, I think his story is the perfect redemption from when we first met him in Fantasized By You.

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.

I’ve made a deal with my editors that I’ll never take such a long time to write a book again, and now you know, so I’m definitely keeping that promise!

I seriously can’t wait for May 10th! I hope you’re as excited as I am! Comment below if you’d like an excerpt from the story!

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

Release Date: Challenged By You (LITC, #5)

Hey, all!

Several of you have been asking when Challenged By You (Love in the City, #5) will be releasing, and I can finally give you a date! Paige’s story will be hitting your eReader devices September 1st, 2016! I’m very excited to share her story with you. It’s the most angsty book of the series so far, but I made sure to throw in enough comic relief so that you’re leaving with a smile instead of some bruises. I actually bawled (yes, you read that right, not just a few small tears here and there, but actually ugly cried) while writing her book. I hope you guys enjoy it just as much! Thank you for being so patient with me. Between a new job and writing, it took me longer than I expected. But the story is at its best, and that’s what matters most to me. I could never release a story I didn’t love or just threw together for the sake of putting out more books throughout the year. I wanted Paige’s story to be perfect because it deserves to be. I know it’s one you’ve been waiting for since we first met Paige back in book one. It’s finally her time, and I’m very proud of her story. So, thank you again for being the wonderful fans you are by standing by me, my team of editors and designers, and my characters, no matter how long it takes for us to deliver! You’re simply the best and we all appreciate your continuous support!

If you’re a book blogger and would like to help promote Challenged By You’s release day blitz and/or blog tour, click here to sign up! Southern Belle Promotions is hosting the events, and I’m very excited to work with them again. They’re organization is simply amazing. Your participation would mean the world to me! Plus you’ll have the opportunity to read the book early!

Stay tune for preorder links as well as some teasers! I’ve already posted the soundtrack to Challenged By You here! (I love making the soundtracks!)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy reading,

Steph

I’m so excited for you to read their story. The feedback from early readers has been amazing, so I’m eager to hear what the rest of you think! Some reactions so far have been:

“You can feel the sexual tension of these two exuding from the pages. Holy hell girl, great job!!!” 

“I am hating that I have to stop to go to a birthday party. Maybe I can find a quiet corner to read lol”

“I’m in love with it.”

This is the story you’ve all been waiting for, and I thank you so much for waiting like the loyal, amazing fans you are!
