CHASE THE SUN Cover, Blurb, and Release Date

CHASE THE SUN (Free Fall #2) releases on SEPTEMBER 9th, 2016!

This is the MM Romance series I am co-writing with Nyrae Dawn and though this is the second book (after TOUCH THE SKY), it is completely a standalone.





BLURB:


Jamie Tolland has only ever known his small Oregon town. Same job, same friends, same gay bar. He feels obligated to stay, especially as his mother’s illness progresses. But when a situation presents itself in the form of a vintage sports car, he jumps on the chance to not only repair it, but also drive it to its new owner in LA.

Conner Murphy left Oregon years ago to make his life in West Hollywood. Like his unconventional parents, he’s always been a free spirit, never settling on one job or girl for too long. When he inherits his late uncle’s classic Chevelle, he’s more than happy to let his childhood friend Jamie help.

Jamie and Conner are as different as night and day. Even after years of living far apart, they still have a blast together—but now it’s mixed with an undeniable spark of attraction. Before they know it, they can’t keep their hands off each other. For Conner it’s all new and exciting, but Jamie isn’t the type of guy who takes this sort of intimacy lightly.

Conner soon realizes that Jamie quenches something deep inside of him that no one has before, but he doesn’t know how to handle a real relationship. As Jamie’s time in LA comes to an end, and the more they struggle to get on the same page about their feelings, the more Jamie realizes that trying to tie Conner down is as futile as capturing the sun.

THE HARDEST FALL is Live!




Lee trades country ballads for show tunes in the next standalone book of her M/M series, Roadmap to Your Heart.

 After licking his wounds from a painful relationship, Tate Sullivan is ready to move back home. He picks up where he left off as drag queen extraordinaire Frieda Love in a West Village bar in New York City. He doesn’t expect to be drawn to the mysterious man with the dark eyes who shows up to every single performance—flirtatiously eyeing Tate one second and disappearing on him the next. Why mess around with a guy who is clearly giving him mixed signals?

Sebastian Clark is on a mission the first night he shows up at Ruby Redd’s. He doesn’t anticipate his plan being flipped on its head by the charismatic drag queen and even more so by the mesmerizing man beneath the makeup. But the more he learns about the vibrant and brash Tate Sullivan the more intrigued he becomes. So he pushes aside his guilt about why he sought out the bar in the first place in order to get to know the guy behind the stilettos.

They’re opposites on many levels, but as Tate spends time volunteering with Sebastian at the shelter, he begins to feel good about himself in ways he hadn’t before. For Sebastian, Tate represents a sense of fun and freedom that is completely fresh and invigorating. Before they know it, their easy companionship catches fire, and Sebastian is kissing a man for the first time, while Tate is opening his heart to new possibilities. But Sebastian is still keeping a secret, and Tate will have to decide if he can trust again, or if the betrayal he feels from Sebastian’s confession is too much to overcome.

TOUCH THE SKY is LIVE!




This is the New Adult Male/Male Romance I co-wrote with Nyrae Dawn (AKA Riley Hart). 

It's about living with mental illness. Getting second chances. And finding somebody you connect with on a soul deep level. 

It's emotional. Romantic. Sexy. And we hope you enjoy Lucas and Gabriel's story.

Retail Links:  
Amazon**Barnes&Noble**iBooks



Free Fall, Book 1
BLURB:


Lucas Barnett and Gabriel Stewart didn’t have it easy as kids. They were only trying to deal with bad situations at home when they became lifelines for each other. Their pipe dream was to someday meet in LA, where Lucas would design skyscrapers, and Gabriel would learn to fly. But then Gabriel disappeared without so much as a goodbye, and Lucas got himself in trouble with the law.

Five years later, both men are at a loss when they run into each other at a Hollywood bar. Lucas is still angry, but it’s not as if Gabriel could control how his mind and body had betrayed him. Being found on the ledge of that bridge had changed everything. 

The attraction is immediate, but it’s more than their inability to keep their hands off each other. Neither man expects the fierce connection pulling them together. Unfortunately, ignoring their problems doesn’t make them disappear. Gabriel’s internal struggles are serious…dangerous. And no matter how much Lucas wants it to be true, saving Gabriel won’t make up for not being able to save his mom. If they don’t find the strength to face their own demons before the darkness takes hold, they risk more than just losing each other forever.

I've got a little announcement...


In my New Year's post, I mentioned that I was writing a SECRET BOOK. I kept it quiet because I wasn’t sure if it would pan out. But now that I’m finished with revisions and totally in love with it, I’d like to share some info about it!

Back in November I started chatting with my friend, Nyrae Dawn, about all the things--books, writing, and collaborations--like authors do. She’s done a couple collabs before and I've always wanted to try one. Then a really cool New Adult male/male romance idea jumped out at us, we plotted out the basics, and just started writing.

The writing process pretty much consumed us. We laughed, we cried, we sighed all the way through. It’s been hard to keep it a secret because I love these boys—Lucas and Gabriel—so hard. 

It’s a pretty emotional book but also a swoony one. It deals with issues that are personal and important to both of us and we’re thrilled to be able to release it soon.

It’s called TOUCH THE SKY and the cover, blurb, and release date will be announced soon.

I think it’s a quiet book, a passionate and angsty one, but also sexy and romantic, and I hope you guys will like it too!

So there you go. More soon!

Three Sacred Words is LIVE!


This is book #2 in the Golden Arrow Series!






From the author of Two of Hearts comes a standalone adult romance about finding love where you least expect it.

Meadow Starr has worked in housekeeping at the Golden Arrow Casino since she was legal. Raising her son, Joaquin, without the support of her parents or the child’s father was not something she had ever envisioned. Neither was pushing a broom, scraping money together to pay the bills, or living in a trailer park on the reservation. Little does she expect her worst nightmare and her best dream to show up in town at the exact same time.

Federal Marshal Alex Flores returns to the reservation where he helped solve a murder investigation last year. He’s never forgotten the mesmerizing woman with the luminous smile and world-weary eyes. Too bad the fugitive on this new case has led him straight to her doorstep. Meadow will never give up Joaquin’s father, not if her wary gaze or her tight set jaw is any indication.

Meadow’s draw to Alex is immediate, but no way she’s going to trade attraction for history, longing for heritage. When the stakes become higher and Alex steps in to protect Meadow and her child from the very man she was willing to defend, he can’t help falling for them both. Who knew something so wrong could feel so right? But as the lines continue to blur, something’s got to give, and Alex isn’t certain he can walk away so easily from love.

THREE SACRED WORDS Blurb and Cover Reveal



Book #2 in the Golden Arrow series will release on Tuesday, January 26th. 

Book #1 is Two of Hearts.


THREE SACRED WORDS is Alex and Meadow's book (along with Meadow's child, Joaquin--I'd be remiss not to mention the sweet kid), and will complete the series. 

I hope those readers who enjoyed the romance, suspense, casino, and reservation setting of the first book will enjoy this as well. Though this is definitely a different perspective as well as a complete standalone.


It will be available for $0.99 for pre-order and release week. After that, it'll return to it's regular price of $3.99.
