Hooray! NEW RELEASE – Reclaiming Melanie – Granite Lake Romance

Hello and welcome back!

I haven’t posted anything on my blog for some time, but I’m thrilled to have you stop by. And I have great news:

I’m happy to announce my NEW RELEASE! – Reclaiming Melanie – Granite Lake Romance book 3 

What’s the new book about?

Single mom Melanie Jamison doesn’t have time for half-naked rescues from Granite Lake by her first love, Braden Keehn — the boy who mysteriously disappeared from her life a decade earlier. Coaching, repurposing furniture, and taking care of her daughter who has severe allergies have her swamped.

But there’s one gargantuan problem with this second chance romance – the sexy alpha game warden doesn’t seem to remember her.

Special Ops Game Warden Braden Keehn’s recent drug investigation leaves him ambushed in the forest and lucky to escape alive. Helping his brother fix and flip an investment property in Granite Lake is just what the doctor ordered for a quiet recuperation.

But there’s one mammoth-sized surprise — Melanie, the girl he loved and lost, lives in the house next door… and he can’t tell her anything about why he’s returned.

Reuniting with Melanie — and falling in love again is easy — but gaining her trust and finding their happy ever after brings frustrating, steamy, and sometimes hilarious challenges Braden never saw coming.

**A steamy, sexy, fun second-chance romance.

Reclaiming Melanie is a stand-alone novel with a happy ever after.

Would you like to read an excerpt?

“Excuse me?”

Melanie spun around and got slapped in the face with her past. Her jaw dropped and she was struck speechless by the man standing next to her car. Instantly self-aware of her hasty hairdo, lack of makeup, and varnish and paint-stained jeans, she found herself capable of doing, well, nothing. Deer-in-the-headlights syndrome much?

Braden Keehn smiled with a bad boy grin he didn’t possess eleven years earlier. His jeans were slung low over his hips and the abundance of ripped muscles beneath his thin cotton V-neck shirt screamed of hours spent working out in the gym. There was no subtlety or humility behind the gleam in his eye, and she somehow knew he’d checked out her package before turning around. The differences about his demeanor from when she knew him before were subtle, yet somehow glaringly obvious. She couldn’t put her finger on it. Melanie shook herself and tried to gain some composure.

“Hi there.” He stuck his hand out.

Her eyebrows rose in surprise, or shock. He doesn’t recognize me. They spent nearly a year together when they were teenagers. How could he not know her? They were each other’s first love.

“I’m your new neighbor.” He dropped his hand as she still hadn’t recovered her ability to function.

He said something else, but she missed it because Sienna’s music switched songs and blared out of the car speakers.

“Sorry. I didn’t hear you.” She gestured toward the open door. “Hold on. Let me turn this down.”

Braden Keehn bought the house next door! Braden Keehn, the boy who broke her heart so completely it sent her on the path that led to teenaged pregnancy, dropping out of college, and a marriage she may not have otherwise chosen…

A Publishing Mistake Made Right – When Amazon Screws Up

My sincere apologies if Amazon sent you the wrong book file of Dark Fates.

Authors sometimes band together and bring readers incredible box set collections. We do this for many different reasons. Personally, I like collaborating with other authors in my genre (or similar genres) because it’s fun, and working with a variety of brilliant authors teaches me a great deal about marketing and promotions. The readers get an unbelievable deal and the opportunity to sample many authors’ work for mere pennies! The authors benefit by reaching a broader audience. Everyone wins.

So when 3 months of hard pre-order work is squashed by Amazon making a ridiculous mistake and sending out nearly 4 thousand wrong book files, everyone loses.

But wait, there’s more. I won’t let one soul-crushing moment from Amazon delivering the wrong book to my precious and appreciated readers ruin the day –

HERE’S a FREE offer from the authors of Dark Fates –

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

This situation is truly out of my control and I am stuck waiting on my own copy of Dark Fates from Amazon just like you are. Does this surprise you? – of course I preordered my own book.

I can guarantee that I’m just as excited to see my published novel as much as any die-hard fans are. Being published is one of the most exciting days in an author’s life.

Amazon stated that they are working on correcting the problem. I sincerely hope they are and you receive your book soon.

Book News, Mega Giveaway & Sale!

It’s been some time since I posted on the blog, but I’m back, and there is exciting news to share.

Death Lies Between Us (An Angel Falls #1) is FREE from June 1-5th on Amazon.

When We’re Entwined is a coming-of-age, new adult novel that I hope you love as much as I do. Release date: June 29, 2016.

About the book:

“Do not judge me for where I stand today, until you know how far I’ve traveled to get here.” — J. Pyrah, When We’re Entwined

Former circus performer and aerial gymnast, Tara knows it’s time to move on. Tired of the constant abuse and the emotional rollercoaster ride at home, she takes to the road to perform on stage with her boyfriend and his band, Paradox 21.

Drunken excursions and late night after-parties lead to an unfathomable betrayal by her boyfriend, Keel. Tara never imagined her summer tour would come to an abrupt end that lands her jobless, homeless, and broke in a city far from home. Unable to reach out to her emotionally distant and unstable mother and her abusive stepfather, a knight disguised as a homeless man gives Tara new perspective. And a punk named Corban, with his gemstone inspired eyes, takes her on a spontaneous road trip that ultimately lands her a job with the traveling sideshow, The Circus of Misfit Marvels.

As Tara searches for a freedom she has never known, she documents her journey by writing her most embarrassing, profound, excruciating, and soul-searching moments in letters to her sister. Despite heartache, love and loss, Tara finds immeasurable strength and wisdom during her travels in this unforgettable adventure of self-discovery.

~*~*~*~

When We’re Entwined is a gripping, emotional modern-day adventure with a glimpse of alternative lifestyles in America as one vibrant, young aerial gymnast realizes cruelty and injustice can be outweighed by kindness, humor, and compassion with the help of a most unlikely and wildly colorful cast of characters.”
