Fairy Tales Release: Snow White!

Welcome To

BB Logo jpg version

Have you read Roxanne St. Claire’s Barefoot Bay series? I’m so excited to take part in a fabulous program call Kindle Worlds. It’s where I write a book set in another author’s world! That means I got to frolic through Roxanne’s white shores of Barefoot Bay for my next release to give a taste of my all new series!

I’m so pleased to say As White As Sand is now available!

 

snow white retold tall

 

When Sophia White’s wicked stepmother attempts to nab complete control of Kingdom Cosmetics with trickery, Sophia flees the downtown Manhattan apartment for the shores of Barefoot Bay until she can have an opportunity to take her deceased parents’ company back. There she winds up with seven adorable pets and the idea to start a pet spa at the local upscale resort, The Casa Blanca.

While Sophia made her escape, she isn’t forgotten. Her stepmother seethes in her penthouse apartment and plots for control of Kingdom Cosmetics. Waiting until the time is right, she sends a man as her poisoned apple to do her bidding.

Peirce Chase may be treated like a huntsman, but he’s not going to (metaphorically) stab Sophia in the heart. He loves her too much. But Peirce can’t just walk away. The evil wannabe queen has blackmailed him into working for her. If he can’t convince Sophia to sign over her shares of the company, he’s off to jail for a murder he didn’t commit.

Falling into an idyllic romance at the beach wasn’t in either of their plans and it may be the thing that shatters them both.

AS WHITE AS SAND is a retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale set in a small town contemporary romance atmosphere.

NEW from ME!

So excited to say Exes And Emotions, Turtle Pine 3 is in the wild! A print version is coming soon! I’m waiting on a couple things to happen before I can release it. If print is your jam, I am so very sorry, but it is coming! A link for Barnes And Noble is also coming. I’ve been sitting on this post all day waiting on B&N to post it live in their store, but so far they haven’t.

ExesAndEmotions-AmazonAmazon B&N | iBookstore Kobo | GooglePlay Scribd

Because there are always two sides to every story…

High school sweethearts became broken hearts when Reed Ingalls and Tina Violet rip apart at the seams. All grown up and years later, a project for the local school forces them back together.

Neither wants to be there, but as the air is cleared on their past, they find that old familiar chemistry drawing them close. Sliding into their old rhythm shines light on their previous problems.

Reed wants answers and Tina would rather keep the lid tight on her shameful secrets. To mend their hearts, these exes will have to listen to their emotions if they want to find happiness.

Backdrops may not be the only thing getting a touch of glue in this third installment of the Turtle Pine Series.

 

Hope you enjoy this addition to Turtle Pine!!

Welcome To Chester Farms!

*unlocks the gate and swings it wide*

come in, come in!

I signed the contract for Never Stopped Loving You a year ago and now it’s here!

never stopped loving youGet it now from Carina Press | Amazon B&N | ARe | iBookstore Kobo

*Audio Book*

Excerpt | Reviews

At eighteen, Kara Duncan had already made her fair share of mistakes, choosing the wrong boy and earning herself a bad reputation in the process. Hurt and humiliated, she’d packed up and moved on, sure that everyone in Bella Warren, Arkansas, would be better off without her. She’d planned never to return, but when crisis strikes, she has nowhere else to turn.

After seven years, Wade Chester thought his feelings for Kara were finally ancient history. Until he sees her again, standing on his front porch just as she’d done a million times before. She needs his help—and his family’s crops—if her canning business is going to survive. The rest of his family has let bygones be bygones, so why is it so hard for him to let go of the past?

While Kara claims to be interested only in putting things right, the old heat flaring between them is undeniable. But Wade will need to risk his heart—and the reputation of his farm—to prove that they’re meant to be together.

New Books! New Series! New Titles!!

If you haven’t seen the news yet, I am so stoked to say I sold a book to Carina Press! With any luck, they won’t realize what sort of redneck, hillbilly they have brought into their fold until I have at least several books in. If you’ve been around, yes, this is the book I’ve been talking about when I had been saying “I hope I’ll have news soon on something!”

What’s the new book about? I’m not sure what all I can share, so I’m going to keep this short. Country, small-town and Southern but the fun new part? it’s LONG!! Right now before we go into edits, it’s 90,000-words. Several readers have mentioned wanting me to go longer and I have listened! So I’d like to welcome you to the new town of Bella Warren, Arkansas. I’m going to take you to a small family run fruit and vegetable farm. There’s some romance, there’s some scared feelings about facing the past, and a lot of hope for the future!

I think everyone’s favorite part so far is the heroine, Kara, cans jam. I have to tell you, as a canner, I’m thrilled about that! I was afraid many would find it old-timeish and that’s sad because canning is so awesome. While my hero’s most important role (other than trying to sweet talk Kara!) is keeping the farm in shape and the produce growing, Wade also invents tractor parts. His family is like Henry Ford in the tractor world.

And the title? I don’t know. 🙂 I’m brainstorming some up now and that’s what started this post! Have you ever heard of wordle.net? It could just be me behind on the times, but I loaded part of my manuscript in there and it spit out this neat graphic!

(if you click the picture, it’ll be bigger). Well, I thought it was cool.

And I should point out that if you want to keep up with the lastest info on this new adventure, get some canning recipes, and get all the news on it the fastest–join my new newsletter! Just click here and sign up! (I’m not going to be flooding your mail every week. Just every now and then when I have something awesome to share!)

So. what do y’all think? And any title ideas off that graphic? By looking at that I’m getting Wade Backs Kara Just Like Time Wanted

maybe I should load a new set of words in?

Rough Tumble Is Out!!!

 

Happy to announce my last book set in the little town of Apple Trail, Arkansas is now available!

Having her fiancé admit through email that he married another girl while away was humiliating enough. Telling the small town the truth was something Tonya just couldn’t face yet. With him in the military, it seemed easy to let everyone think they were still together. Just for a little while. Fast-forward through time a few months and Tonya’s restless, lonely, and unsure how to fix her lie. To add to that, she’s finding her best friend, Trent Iverson, more and more attractive.

When Tonya confesses the truth, Trent feels like his life is finally on the right path. Everything is smooth sailing until old fears that makes him controlling surface. He has to face the mirror and see his controlling ways if he wants to keep Tonya.

New Cover for Charley!!

I’ve got a new cover! What do y’all think?

 

It’s not every day a girl takes out the trash and is nearly run over for it, but that’s exactly what happens to Sara Livingston. Manager and waitress at a bar, Sara typically spends her days serving drinks and turning up the TV volume on the latest sport’s game, a job that is quite enough to make her mostly liked by all. When she’s dropped into a game of cat and mouse with a stalker, she has no idea who could be behind the wheel of the truck or why they want her flattened on the pavement.

 

With her private eye brother out of town, she’s relying on her brother’s coworker, Clark Russells, to keep her from eating asphalt.

 

This is book two in my new mystery series! Clark Russells and Sara’s brother, Brad, make their debut appearence in my first mystery release, In Her Sights, that is now available from these fine folks: Amazon | B&N | Kobo | ARe | Smashwordsibookstore | Diesel

Some call her a killer.
Others call her a hero.

Lexie Olympia calls herself neither. She’s getting the job done because she can. A beloved philanthropist by day who’s nicknamed Melville’s Sweetheart, Lexie has the city wrapped around her little finger. Having been a victim in the past, left behind with the killer still on the loose, Lexie knows what it’s like to live with that fear. Instead of biting her nails over it, she takes action. Drug lords, gang leaders, con artists, kidnappers, serial killers, anyone who leaves behind innocent victims are marked on Lexie’s list.

When a neighbor leaves a stolen ancient dagger on her doorstep and skips town, Lexie’s left picking up the pieces. The police, a local private investigator, and a gang are all after this artifact and Lexie uses her nighttime persona, Artemis, to get to the bottom of things. Everything is going smoothly until she gets caught.

Some call her a killer. Others call her a hero. She’s finally here.

Goodness, I can’t hardly believe it. This past summer I decided to publish one of my favorite stories I’ve ever written. Who would have thought the months would have gone by so fast? I guess between working with editors, my many fabulous readers and pulling it all together, the time just sped by.

They have, and now it’s here. In Her Sights is now available at most online ebook stores.

Others call her a hero.

The police, a local private investigator, and a gang are all after this artifact and Lexie uses her nighttime persona, Artemis, to get to the bottom of things. Everything is going smoothly until she gets caught.

Chapter One:

Lexie Olympia stood over her nightstand and debated between the .38 special and the Taser. Whoever was breaking into her safe downstairs deserved to have the .38 for an early breakfast, but it would create a huge mess. Not just blood. Particles and pieces. It would splatter over whatever was near his head. Considering the location of the thief leaning in her safe, the snub nose gun would have brain matter landing all over her diamonds.

Ruining millions of dollars in precious stones was bad, but it wasn’t the worst of it. It was after three in the morning. Daylight was way too close to be dumping a dead body. And calling the police after shooting him would guarantee the newspapers. Like hell would she have a photograph of a chalk outline on her marble floors printed. Or worse, the photographers could make some tacky request for her to pose with the gun.

A chill went over her shoulders.

She shook and grabbed the Taser. Fifty thousand volts pulsing through his nervous system would do the trick. Looked like she’d be the lucky Ms. Olympia tonight who bravely caught a man sneaking around her home.

She unclicked the probe cartridge and pulled the trigger. Electricity sparked and sizzled, signaling it was ready to go. She re-inserted the probes and hurried down the hall. Her pink slippers with fluffy white lambs jumping over fences silenced her steps. That and years of training that taught her how to move quickly, but silently.

The rest of Chapter One is available to read here

My husband has been reading and proofing In Her Sights. Every 20 or so pages he makes a comment about the story. If you’re on twitter, you’ll see the hashtag of #dhproofing. Last night’s comment was too long for twitter, so I posted it here:

 

Husband reads aloud: “You don’t look so good.”

He laughs and says: Hell no. No man would ever say that to a woman he’s attracted to. Ever. I can tell you what she’s going to do with that dagger now. She’s going to stab him.

 

Happy Tuesday All!!!
