About That Night in DABWAHA!

9780425246955_AboutThatNig_CV.inddYesterday, I got the news that ABOUT THAT NIGHT is the Contemporary Readers’ Nominee in the DABWAHA March Madness tournament. Thanks so much to all who voted for it!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with DABWAHA, or who’ve maybe heard about it but never participated, basically, it’s a March Madness-style tournament of romance novels. Anyone can participate–I believe it’s open internationally–and it’s tons of fun. Plus there are lots of chances to win some very cool prizes!

In a nutshell, romance novels are pitted against each other in various rounds, and people vote for the books they want to advance. Much trash-talking, among both authors and readers, ensues. So if you have some favorite books from 2012, this is your chance to get in on the fun and yell and cheer for them to win. (Plus, remember, there are prizes.)

To enter, you need to fill out your DABWAHA bracket–which is styled just like the NCAA basketball tournament–and choose who you think the winners will be. You can enter your bracket by clicking on this link. More information about the tournament, including the full roster of nominees and the prizes, can be found at the DABWAHA site. Note that entries are due by March 19 at 11:59:00 AM ET.

P.S. For those of you who loved Kyle, the infamous ex-con/billionaire heir/Twitter Terrorist hero of About That Night, he’d be more than happy to have your DABWAHA vote. : )

Good luck to all who enter!

The Countdown Continues… with another giveaway!

**Please note: the giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly.

Less than three weeks to the release of Love Irresistibly! Which means it’s time for. . . another giveaway!

As many of you know, Love Irresistibly is the fourth book in my FBI/U.S. Attorney series. (FYI, for those of you who aren’t familiar, the books are a “series” in the sense that they are set in a shared world and some characters make appearances in later books. But I write each book as a standalone, so you should feel free to jump in wherever you like.)

For the past several weeks I’ve been giving away copies of the previous books in the series, so now we are up to my last release, About That Night.  About That Night features a billionaire heir/network security specialist/ex-con hero who went to prison for crashing Twitter. Yep, you read that right.  Here’s a short description:



Though Rylann Pierce tried to fight the sparks she felt for billionaire heir Kyle Rhodes the night they met, their sizzling chemistry was undeniable. But after being stood up on their first date, Rylann never expected to see him again. So when she finds herself face-to-face with Kyle in a courthouse nine years later, she’s stunned. More troubling to the beautiful assistant U.S. attorney is that she’s still wildly attracted to him.


Just released from prison, Kyle Rhodes isn’t thrilled to be the star witness in a high-profile criminal case—but when Rylann comes knocking at his door, he finds she may be the one lawyer he can’t say no to. Still as gorgeous and sharp-tongued as ever, she lays down the law: she doesn’t mix business with pleasure. But Kyle won’t give up on something he wants—and what he wants is the one woman he’s never forgotten. . .

And now for the giveaway part: all you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. It’s that easy. (Note: those of you reading this on my Goodreads page should click here to leave a comment.) One grand prize winner will receive a copy of About That Night and a $25 gift card to Amazon/Barnes & Noble. Four additional winners will receive a copy of About That Night.

Giveaway is open internationally and will run until this Monday, March 18, at 9pm CST.

Have you all seen Cade’s hero profile? I’ve updated my series page to include a fun sneak-peak at the hero of Love Irresistibly. (Psst– there’s even a photo!)
