Let's Celebrate! #Giveaway for $150 Amazon card! Lady Vanishes a Kindle Monthly Deal$1.99

Final book in the Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series, out January 11th.
It's been an amazing year so. Crazy, amazing and oh, so busy. My son was born in March, two of my books were published, THE LADY VANISHES and A FRENCH WHIPPING, and seems like there was more stuff. But having a kid will do that. Time disappears. I think to myself, "Okay, you'll have time to write tonight. For sure. He'll go to bed by 9 and then you can write for a few hours." Reality can be a harsh mistress. Of course he wakes up fifteen times with horrible gas because my dumb butt decided this was the week to introduce spinach.
Anyway, idiocy aside, there are many reasons to celebrate the dawn of 2016. Besides my darling son--who is a handful just like his father--the final book in my Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series is being released on January 11th! The first book in the series, THE LADY VANISHES, is also being offered at a discounted price ($1.99) on Amazon as part of the Kindle Monthly Deal. Whoo hoo.

I'm also offering my biggest giveaway prize ever, a $150 gift card to Amazon or the bookstore of your choice. I like @Powells, or if you're in Houston, try @murderbooks, or @bluewillowbooks, or @BrazosBookstore (Awesome independents)!

Reading "Yes, Please!" And Singing A,B,C's

So, I was listening to Amy Poehler's book  on Audible and she mentions in the intro how difficult she found writing and taking care of her children. Listening to it, I just laughing and nodding my head in sympathy. I recently finished the last book in my billionaire series, LIE IN THE MOMENT, and there were moments when I asked myself..."WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?" But I did manage to finish it. I even like it. So that's something.

Now I  am struggling to get started on a new project. Unfortunately my books aren't really selling, so it's hard to justify the time away from my darling boy or neglecting sleep to work on something that may or may not ever get published.

I can't give it up though. I thought that maybe I could, but even as I sing the ABCs for the 500th time, I am thinking about what I could write next, even when I know that three quarters of the way through it, I will be cursing every word and wondering why in heaven's name I do this to myself. Masochistic. Maybe. Probably. All the indicators are there...especially if you read my books. Lol.

Still looking for readers to provide an honest review online of my latest book, A FRENCH WHIPPING. Will happily send a copy of the ebook. Just email me at

Ahhhh...Pool tags! Giveaway Updates and More.

As summer approaches, I am both excited and a little bummed. I cannot attend the RWA conference in NEW YORK and I really miss NEW YORK. I won't get to meet my editor, Kate Dresser, or see my friend and publisher Lauren McKenna. But the reason I can't go is because my beautiful son is really too young to go gallivanting to New York City--or so his father insists. Still, I picked up our pool tags today (awesome) and did some promo work for my new release A FRENCH WHIPPING, which came out on Monday--the day of crazy storms here in Texas. If it stops raining, and I figure out whether my son is old enough to go to the community pool, and I finish my manuscript...sigh. I'm sure I'll get poolside eventually.

Upcoming reads:

Life as a zombie

Ahh....motherhood. It's amazing. I love my little pooper so much, but I cant remember the last time I slept, or wrote anything worth reading. You know those pictures of beautiful, tranquil mothers wearing impeccable makeup as they tenderly cradle their child? Well, that's not me. I look like one of the zombies that was stuck in the flooded basement on Walking Dead. Bloated, pale, with dark circles eyes. Only for my darling son would I undergo this sleep deprivation experiment.

On the plus side, I've been stuck in my glider during the day and have discovered that I enjoy some daytime tv: #LivewithKellyandMichael, #thechew, and I love #LastWeekTonight with John Oliver. This past Sunday, John Oliver covered the travesty of how the US is one of only two countries that doesn't require companies to provide moms with paid maternity leave. I don't know how moms without paid leave manage it; I'm a basket case and I've been out for eight weeks.

At any rate, the world has not stopped turning as I kiss my snuggly baby, and my second book in the Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series, A FRENCH WHIPPING, is coming out near the end of May. Nick is controlling, possessive, and very in love with Blake Webster. She is the one person with the power to unravel his carefully crafted self-possession.

Here's a little teaser for your enjoyment:
"Under less horny circumstances, Blake might have been embarrassed to be trussed up with her ass in the air, but she wanted him too badly to care at the moment. The tight silk resisted as she instinctively tried to stretch, the crisscrossed cord beneath her making a sibilant sound."

By the way, I suck. I had to delay the completion of the final book LIE IN THE MOMENT, Roland's story, due to a complicated end of pregnancy and labor, so its publication was moved to January. Yes, I'm blaming the kid. Real writers work through exhaustion and discomfort. I am, however, giving myself a pass on this one.

In the meantime, there are some great promos coming up!

1. The Book Enthusiast will be hosting a release blitz and giveaway on June 6th. Here's a sign up link for the event:

2. Promotional Pricing for THE LADY VANISHES - The Lady Vanishes, the book that introduced the Billionaire series, will be bargain priced at $1.99 from 5/18 to 5/25! If you have it on your to-read list and haven't gotten it yet, now's your chance. I'll also be hosting a giveaway to celebrate!

TIE ME UP IN KNOTS! Cover Reveal & Giveaway.

In case anyone was wondering, the second book in my billionaire series, A FRENCH WHIPPING, features lots and lots of rope...and knots. NAUGHTY. Ha ha. I crack myself up. Anyway, a french whipping is a type of knot using to secure the fraying end of another rope. I researched knots on various sites, including this one: So, since this is a dirty book, there is lots and lots of sex involving rope and a Japanese art form called various names, including Shibari.

Found on Pinterest and
So, of course, when my lovely publisher came up with a cover, it is absolutely fabulous, and includes rope tied in a knot...naturally. I hope you all find it as titillating as I do.

Cover Reveal Giveaway Coming Soon! Congratulations to all my recent giveaway winners!

Good morning everyone,

I am pregnant, sitting on a exercise ball, and hoping that writing sex scenes can bring on labor. I don't think there have been any studies done, but here's to hoping. I spilled coffee down my shirt and in my hair, I'm wearing slippers, and I've eaten about half a dozen chocolate eggs. Super-sexy. Damn you, Easter candy, for looking so sparkly and delicious in your blue and pink bags.


OK, maybe not dying, but this baby better make an appearance soon or we're going to have a chat. Mama can't write, focus, or sleep.

In other news, congratulations to the winners of my ebook giveaway of THE LADY VANISHES, which ended yesterday. Thank you for participating. I'd love it if you all read and reviewed the book on Amazon on Goodreads. It'd be totally amaze-balls since the book still isn't selling.

Of course, a writing purist would tell me to get over that and be proud of a book I love. I am, yo. But I'd like to continue to be published.

I am super-excited to let everyone know that I'll be hosting a cover reveal and giveaway for A FRENCH WHIPPING and LIE IN THE MOMENT, the second and third books in the series. Any bloggers out there interested in hosting the cover reveal would be very welcome, just shoot me an email. Look for it in the next few days, unless I go into labor. Please for the love of....

Late Night with Cake

Damn you, Pinterest. I took an hour of writing time to make a cream cheese pound cake. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and nothing looked as delicious as that pound cake, all buttery with a yummy crust. So yeah, I did, I baked the pound cake, only I didn't have the right cake pan, so I ended up with two pound cakes. And let me tell you, this is one delicious cake. I definitely don't need two of them sitting around the house.

My husband accused me of cheating on him with baked goods because of the noise I made while I was eating it. Light, buttery, sweet, delicious. I could have devoured the entire thing if the kid had left any kind of room in my stomach. My dachshund and my spaniel concurred with this sentiment and tried to convince me that eating a whole cake was okay, as long as they could participate in the gluttony. You can find it here if you are a fan of cake (who isn't, really)? Evil Cake Link

Evil cake.

And now, I can't sleep. Predictable. I just ate like 600 calories (optimistic estimate). So I'm sitting on the couch, smelling cake and writing, but I thought I'd just take a moment to share this brief moment of insanity with everyone. And also, send out a friendly reminder that I currently have a giveaway running for the release of my new book THE LADY VANISHES. Coming soon: Giveaways for the cover reveal of A FRENCH WHIPPING and LIE IN THE MOMENT. Think everyone will like these covers as well.

Until then, keep reading sexy books and eating cake.
