Adventures in New Adult Romance

I'm so excited to share my newest venture (or adventure as the title says) with all of you!

Coming later this month! 

Here's the blurb:

On the surface, twenty-two year old Cole Morgan is exactly what any girl would be proud to take home to meet her parents: He’s charming, intensely handsome and goal-oriented...Only he has some secrets of his own, which include provoking bar fights and a former drug-addict of a mother slowly wasting away in a medical facility. 

At barely twenty, Violet Lynn is Country Music's hottest star, until one night of partying gets out of control. Violet ends up in jail and on TMZ. Suddenly, she’s the girl least likely to be invited anywhere. Sick of the drama and keeping secrets, she runs away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi to her grandmother’s home in Forrestville, North Carolina.

A chance meeting knocks Cole off his feet, but he doesn’t recognize Violet for who she is. In fact no one does and Violet plans to keep it that way. 

Circumstances, however annoying,keep throwing Violet and Cole together. Unable to stop themselves they give into the inevitable.

But when Nashville is ready to forgive and forget, Violet is forced to choose between Cole and claiming her spot as the new and improved Princess of Country Music.

Will Violet and Cole have the courage to live for their dreams...Or their hearts?


Confession: This book made me cry while I was writing it. (Okay, sob in some scenes.)  I was so invested into Cole and Violet's characters that some of the things that happened to them actually hurt me to write...and I'm all about torturing my characters (ppsst. Don't tell! Others might not show up and let me write their story.) before they get to their happily ever after. No pain, no gain. Am I right?

And for my reward for finishing this book, I'm reading an advanced copy of Carly Phillips' s Perfect Fling !!! SQUEE!!!

So, what are you reading this weekend?
