Hey Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. And happy Autumn to us all! Soon leaves will be turning gorgeous rich colors, fragrances like pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg will be wafting through the crisp, chilled air and we'll be curling up under a warm, toasty blanket with a hot cup of cocoa and a good book. Makes me smile to think of it.

Crazy busy days for me lately. As you know, MIDNIGHT LIES, releases tomorrow. Release week is always fun but also a little manic. Kind of feel like a tap dancer and the music keeps getting faster and faster. I'm dancing as fast as I can. Honest!

Have you been over to my Ella Grace site this week for the countdown to release day? I've been sharing excerpts, review snippets, and giving away some fabulous prizes. Today's the last day so be sure to jump over there and enter. Up for grabs today is a $15 Amazon gift card. Here's the link: Ella Grace website contest

Also tomorrow I'm hosting a release day party of my Ella Grace Facebook page. Party runs from 10:00 AM (CST) to 4:00 PM. Lots of fun and fabulous giveaways. Here's the link: Ella Grace Facebook page

Once release week madness is over, it'll be back to work for me. NOTHING TO LOSE is coming along nicely. Lots of angst, emotion, action, and steamy romance. My favorites things. :)

As for recommends. Well, you know I had to say it. Right? My recommend is MIDNIGHT LIES. I so love this book and hope you do too.

Okay, that's it for me. I'm putting on my tap shoes and dancing away.

Have a great week everyone. Now, tell us what great books you read last week!

Happy Monday All!

Hope you had a great weekend and read something you can't wait to tell us about.

Last week, my days and nights were filled with Kennedy, Nick, Grey, and an intriguing new character named Eli. Wow, I'm am loving NOTHING TO LOSE. My characters are taking the story in directions I never anticipated but I'm so excited to go along for the ride. I cannot wait to get this book out to you. I hope to share the cover with you soon, so stay tuned!

This week and the next two I'll be dividing my time between Christy Reece books and Ella Grace's new release, MIDNIGHT LIES. I'm hearing such wonderful things from readers about how much they're loving Quinn and Samantha's story. Since my publisher offered it up to early reviews on Net Galley and had several giveaways, many people have been able to read it early. If you've not read it yet, don't worry, it'll be everywhere next week!

As a countdown to the September 24 release, I'm having a giveaway a day over on Ella Grace website beginning tomorrow. If you love books, gift cards, and more books, you will not want to miss this event!

Also, please join me Tuesday, September 24 over on Ella Grace's Facebook page for a special release day event. Lots of prizes and lots and lots of fun. 

As you see from the post below this, the UK edition of SWEET REVENGE released last Thursday. Thank you to all who entered the giveaway here and on my Facebook page. The blog winner is: Angela Ingram! Congrats, Angela! Send your mailing address to and I'll get the book out to you soon.

This week, in between my characters taking me from Houston to Dallas to Austin, Texas, I'm going to be preparing blogs and interviews for upcoming blog appearances. Stay tuned for more information on that.

And I'm excited to say that even though my week was very busy, I did take the time to devour an absolutely delicious book by new to me author, Rachel Grant. Body of Evidence was a riveting read from the first page to the very last. The action never let up and it was clear that the author definitely knows her stuff. Check it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I'll definitely be reading more of her work.

Okay, that's it for me this week. I hope to see you on my Ella Grace site tomorrow for the first big giveaway.

Have a great week all. And now, tell us what fabulous books we should be reading!

Hey All!

Jamie Kendrick went to hell at the hands of Stanford Reddington, a monster protected by money and power. Asking for LCR's help, Jamie makes plans for her revenge. And Dylan Savage, one of LCR's most skilled operatives, is given an assignment he despises but can't refuse - train the lovely Jamie, but thwart her revenge plot at all costs. With tender ruthlessness, he pries open her most intimate secrets - and the attraction they've both tried to deny explodes into a scorching love affair that Dylan has to end. Months later, the two meet again - at the home of Stanford Reddington. In the grip of hurt, anger, desire, and danger, Jamie and Dylan will risk more than a broken heart: they're risking everything to stop an evil fiend from destroying more lives, including their own.

Good Monday All!

How was your weekend? A good one? Did you get in some reading? If so, can't wait to hear about your favorites.

I spent last week in Dallas, Mexico, Virginia, and Paris. Needless to say it was a busy week. :)

This week I will be concentrating on my villains. It occurred to me that I don't know them as well as I should. And you know how I love a good villain.

Also, I'm gearing up for a week of giveaways counting down to the release of MIDNIGHT LIES. Instead of my usual release day party, I'm having a giveaway each day beginning Tuesday, September 17 until September 24. So be sure to check my Ella Grace website beginning next Tuesday. I'll have more information to share in next week's post.

Here's a bit of news. CHANCES ARE is about to get a gorgeous new cover! Though I still love the original one, I'm changing the look in preparation for future LCR books so there will be as much continuity as possible. I'll reveal it soon but if you love the current cover and don't have the book yet, be sure to grab it up soon before it's gone.

Okay that's it for me. I'm offline the rest of the week getting to know my bad guys. Can't wait to see what evil deeds they've been plotting.

Have a great week all! Now tell us what we should be reading!

Good Monday Everyone and Happy Labor Day!

How was your weekend? And for those celebrating Labor Day with a long weekend, are you having a good one?

My weekend was filled with celebrating my mom's birthday, football, writing, and reading. The perfect weekend! And last week was another fabulous one filled with traveling and fascinating characters. I am loving both of these books and can't wait to get them out to you.

We're 22 days away from the release of MIDNIGHT LIES. Seems like I've been waiting for this release forever. I can't wait for you to meet Quinn Braddock. I hope you fall in love with him as much as I did. He is perfect for Samantha. And though it takes them a while to work things out--a murderer on the loose has a tendency to delay a happy ending--they do get their happy ever after. If you're looking for the book, here are a few links you can pre-order:

Barnes and Noble
Book Depository

And stayed tuned for contest news as we get closer to the release date.

Okay, that's it for me. I'm going to be doing a little reading today and hopefully writing, too. It's a lovely, rainy day here in Bama, perfect for my plans.

Have a great week all. Now tell us what great books you read last week!
