Cover reveal–SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER (and a giveaway!)

November 4th, 2014 | 346 comments »

**Please note: the giveaway is now closed.

Yay! It feels like I’ve been waiting forever to be able to share the cover of my upcoming release, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER. And yes, I know I’m biased, but I love this cover and think Berkley did a fantastic job. Wanna see for yourself? Here you go:


SOS final cover

That dress! The beach backdrop! And of course, since this is one of my books, we naturally have to have shoes.  In case you missed the cover blurb, here’s a little more information about the book:


Available May 2015


Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn’t mean she’s opposed to casual dating—just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister’s case, she’s as determined to win as ever—even if that means teaming up with Ford.


Investigative journalist Ford Dixon is bent on finding the man who got his sister pregnant and left her high and dry. He’s willing to partner with Victoria, despite the fact that the beautiful brunette gets under his skin like no other woman. He might not be looking to settle down, but there’s no denying the scorching attraction between them. Still, the more time he spends with Victoria, the more he realizes that the one woman as skeptical about love as he is might be the only woman he could really fall for. . .

* * *

Now, in case you missed my blog post a couple months ago, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER is not part of my FBI/U.S. Attorney series. Neither the heroine nor hero is an FBI agent or Assistant U.S. Attorney, and no part of the plot relates to the FBI or federal prosecutors office. So calling it an FBI/U.S. Attorney book would be, well, weird. But Ford, the hero in SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, first appeared in Love Irresistibly (he was the heroine’s best friend), so rest assured that there will be familiar faces in the book.

More good news: SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER is available for pre-order! You can pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. Psst–Amazon currently has it for only $5.99 in Kindle. No clue how long that price drop will last, so if you’re a Kindle reader, you might want to consider ordering Victoria and Ford while they’re cheap. : )

Book release date is May 5.

But enough from me . . . let’s get to the giveaway! To celebrate the cover reveal, I’m giving away a signed copy of ANY of my books (winner’s choice) to FIVE people who leave a comment below. Giveaway is international, and will remain open until 9pm CST on Thursday, November 6. Please leave only one comment.  (Those of you reading this on my Goodreads blog should click here to leave a comment.)

Good luck!

Giveaway! Three Kindle copies of IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING

October 20th, 2014 | 11 comments »

IHOW final coverGiveaway! So, it’s Little Girl’s birthday and I’m feeling sentimental. Four years ago, I went to the hospital to be induced (because she was perfectly content to stay in there forever, apparently), and it was right about this time we figured out my epidural wasn’t working. 8O On the upside, my awesome OB did impressions of Will Ferrell to distract me while I was pushing.

Anyone else have a funny labor/delivery story? Three people who leave a comment either below (or at the identical post at my Facebook page) will win a KINDLE copy of IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING. (The comment can be anything–doesn’t have to be a labor/delivery story.) Giveaway will remain open until 9pm CST on Tuesday, October 21. **Please note that the gift certificates for the Kindle copies of the book will be sent from Amazon U.S.

P.S. Those of you seeing this post on Goodreads should click here to leave a comment at my blog to enter, or here to leave a comment at my Facebook page to enter.

Must be 18 years or older to participate.
Entrants can leave a comment either at this Facebook post or at the giveaway post at my blog.
Winners will be notified on this site and on my Facebook page.
