SEE ME Giveaway!

(Note: Buying links at bottom of post)

Not everyone seems to know that I have another book published - something separate from the Sweet Trilogy. It's a fun, swoony tale called SEE ME, which I independently published this spring. It's an urban fantasy about a magical American girl named Robyn who travels to Ireland after graduating to meet her betrothed, McKale, for the first time - a coming of age romance that'll have you laughing along the way.

I've always had a thing for ginger guys, so this was the perfect opportunity to write one. McKale is a quiet, serious character, always thinking, always watching. These pictures of actor Stefano Masciolini are how I imagine McKale (ironically, Stefano is Italian). Num num...

YES!  This picture!  This!  *stares*

Nice, eh? ;) 
 If you haven't met McKale and Robyn yet, 
SEE ME is half-price on Kindle and Nook for a limited time - 
only $1.49!!

I'm currently brainstorming a sequel, which would center around Robyn's sister Cassidy and her miscreant love interest, Rock. If you have an extraordinary plot idea, please let me know, teehee.

Fan Appreciation and SWEET TEMPTATION News

Moments ago, I finished a gigantic revision of my new book, Sweet Temptation. For those of you who haven't heard, this book is the entire Sweet trilogy from Kaidan Rowe's point of view - it's a companion novel. It was my toughest book yet. It's due to publish September 8th, 2015. We're officially under the one-year mark, woohoo!

During the summer I had a bit of fun with y'all on Facebook and Twitter. I asked for songs that you think should be included in Kaidan's book, and you provided in a big way! It took a while to go through them all and choose. I've listed the 40+ songs to be tentatively featured/mentioned in Sweet Temptation. Please note that this list is subject to change, as needed.

I can't thank you enough for your input!! Even my husband suggested one that I ended up loving and using ("Mad World"). Hope you enjoy!

And now for the super duper exciting part!!! The other fun thing I decided to do was to use fan names in the book. I asked readers to let me know if they were interested. Hundreds of tweets and Facebook messages gave me LOTS to choose from! I was able to work 13 names into Sweet Temptation. I cannot guarantee that your character will be flattering - they are not based on you guys, they're just pretend characters to whom I've attached your names. All I can promise is that each character has an interaction with Kaidan of some sort (mostly smexy). If you entered this contest and your name is on this list, then consider yourself the winner! It wasn't feasible to include last names.) SO CONGRATS!!



Thank you all so much! I'll post a juicy teaser this fall. Until then, please enter to win signed bookmarks - open internationally. I love you guys!
