I’m super happy to share that my novella, Yours At Midnight, has a new cover and a new imprint! It’s officially rereleasing on February 9th as a Red Hot Bliss, but I so love the new look that I couldn’t wait to share it. Guess what else? It’s now only .99 cents!

YoursAtMidnight_cover2

One night. One love. One secret that could rip them apart…

Lyric Whetsone only had eyes for Quinn Sobel’s brother Oliver, until a car crash took Oliver’s life on New Year’s Eve. Then, a moment of shared grief between Quinn and Lyric became something more impassioned, something that frightened Quinn so much he ran from Lyric’s bed and her life, disappearing for four long years.

Now Quinn’s back for another New Year’s Eve, struggling for closure, desperate to leave his grief in the past and make amends with the girl of his dreams.

But Lyric has a secret—one that could drive Quinn from her life forever. Will Quinn run away from the love and acceptance he’s always wanted…or will he claim his New Year’s kiss and make her his at midnight?

A little tease to warm you up

10 comments

Categories: Bliss, Books

Happy New Year!

We’ve had some pretty chilly days in my neck of the woods, and I’m thinking it might be cold where you are too, so how about a little teaser from KEEPING MR. RIGHT NOW. The book takes place in a small beach town during the summer so what better way to warm up than with a little Zane time? (And if it’s warm where you are, well, how about getting a little hotter?) Wink

“You think everything revolves around Zane Hollander, don’t you?”

“No. But I think your blush does.”

Her shoulders tensed and she pressed her lips together. The thin line of her mouth didn’t prevent him from hearing her irritated sigh. She was annoyed—at him, at herself?—and hell if she didn’t look cute in the process.

“Your notice makes me jumpy.”

“Sorry.”

“And I don’t like it.”

“Here’s the thing.” He bent to whisper in her ear. “I do.”

She shivered, and he felt it as if she were a part of him. He should stop teasing her, he knew he should, but something about Sophie Birch jerked at his control.

“I like the pink flush that rises in your cheeks and moves down your neck, your throat.” He slid a finger across her collarbone. “Makes me wonder how far down that blush goes.”

I hope you’ll check out the whole story!

Sex, Secrets & The Boy Next Door

Categories: Books, Yours At Midnight

Looking for a holiday read this week? My novella, YOURS AT MIDNIGHT, takes place from Christmas to New Year’s, but there’s, uh, lots more going on than just holiday cheer. Like what, Robin? I’m glad you asked!

There’s…
Sex… From the very beginning of the book the reader learns that Lyric and Quinn have had a one-night stand. The kind of one-night stand neither can forget. When they see each other again after four years, of course the first thing that runs through their mind is that night. I think thoughts are often just as potent as actions, and I loved writing the sexual tension between these two.

And…
Secrets… Lyric’s got one. And it’s a doozy. I knew some people wouldn’t like her because she’s kept this secret, but I wanted to convey that life is often messy and confusing and we sometimes do things we’re not proud of. Lyric’s decision was really difficult for her, but at the time she felt so hurt that she didn’t think things through like she should have. Then she lived with the secret. And lived with it. Until telling the truth scared the crap out of her. Was she selfish? Yes. But I think that makes her human. Sometimes we do only think of ourselves. As the story progresses, I tried to show her struggling with the choice she made, and by the end I hoped her actions would redeem her and readers who didn’t instantly fall in love with her at the start, would love her now.

And…
The Boy Next Door… ~sigh~ Saying those four words in the context of a romance novel conjures a sexy, trouble-making, too tempting to ignore guy in my mind. Add in a heart that needs healing and I’m so hooked. Quinn is complex. He’s hurting. And letting go of that pain isn’t easy for him. I really enjoyed writing him and digging into what made him who he was and who he wanted to be. I loved that he had so much history with Lyric, and that it took him a while to reconcile that. I loved showing a more playful and possessive side to him the more time he spent with Lyric. And I really loved when he opened up to her and she didn’t know what to do with him after that.

I truly had the best time writing this novella and during the holidays I think about it more than usual. It’s a story very dear to my heart for several reasons and I hope you’ll check it out!

Happy Holidays! Happy New Year! Happy! Happy!

With 2014 drawing to a close I thought I’d share a few of my favorite pictures from the year. A quick little retrospective of what brought a smile to my face.

IMG_0193

This little guy is a constant source of happy. Even when he’s being naughty and chewing on things he’s not supposed to. Love you, Harry!

IMG_0023

You guys know how much I love cupcakes. So getting these from my awesome publisher, Entangled, was really special and I’m so glad I took a picture to remember them by!

IMG_0987

This is one of my favorite pictures from RWA. That’s the amazing Samanthe Beck, the amazing Liz Pelletier, and me at the RITA Awards Ceremony. Are we cool or what? LOL

IMG_0184

I don’t post many pictures of my family, but my guys are the most important people in my life and this picture is from Father’s Day. We’re at Angel Stadium and had the best time. The only thing missing was my older son, who was out of town for a fraternity function.

IMG_1069

The ocean, the sand, they are my favorite things and on the day I took this picture I was so thrilled to have the first book in my Kisses in the Sand series out. I was also on a weekend getaway with my hubby and that made this morning walk on the beach really wonderful.

That’s me and my mom after our skydive. She landed back safely on the ground after me and this is one of the few pics her instructor got of us together. I love how she looks so calm as she’s talking about her experience. It was one of the best days ever – definitely a highlight from 2014!

I hope you have fond memories of the year, and I’d love to hear about something special you’ll always remember. Happy holidays and…

I DID IT!

I skydived! And it was awesome and amazing and crazy fun and I can’t wait to do it again!! Seriously, I want to jump again right now.

I was hoping to post the video here, but I can’t figure out how to share it. So, you’ll just have to come over to my house and watch it. It’s pretty funny. I swear, I had my mouth open the entire time. I was either  wooting it up or talking or laughing or something. But my damn lips never shut! Next time I jump I’m going to look a lot cooler.

I do have pictures, though! So here’s a little photo montage of me in action.

Here’s my view right before I jumped…

view before jump

And here I am right after I jumped. Although it was more like Leon (that’s my instructor) gently nudged me out of the plane. It was really easy and not at all scary. Check out the airplane right behind me!

The free fall was amazing! Look, Mom, no parachute!

GOPR1465_0.01.02.09

GOPR1465_0.01.17.04

The free fall lasted about 30 seconds and then Leon pulled on the chute. We coasted down for about 5 minutes after that. I wanted to stay up in the sky ALL DAY!

GOPR1465_0.01.41.04

Here I am getting to steer! See my hand on that yellow cord? That guides the chute. I tugged with my right hand and then my left  so we could do turns. It was like being on a roller coaster in the sky. Totally rocked! (And shh… it made me a teensy bit nauseous.) Also notice, my mouth is open. *shakes head* Oh, Leon also said I could slide off my goggles if I wanted to, so I did. The scenery was beautiful.

GOPR1466_0.01.55.23

Our landing was seamless and I was so sorry for the jump to come to an end. That’s me looking to the sky and wishing I was still up there!

GOPR1466_0.03.31.11

I’ve so got the bug now you guys! You can be sure I’ll jump again in 2015. I really loved it and wasn’t nervous or worried for even a second. This was a really special way to spend my mom’s birthday – yep, she jumped too and rocked it – and now I’m anxious to figure out my next adventure. Smile Who’s with me?

Gilded Passions

Categories: Books, Romance

I’m so excited to share a new release with you! This one is from a special person to me – Alice Langdon. Alice and I are chapter mates in our local RWA chapter and we hit it off the second we met. She’s warm, friendly, outgoing, and talented in so many areas. (She acts and sings like nobody’s business, you guys.) And lucky for me when it came time in our chapter to match mentors with mentees, we were delighted to get hooked up together. Wink

She recently self published her first novel and I’m thrilled to have the details here! TRUSTING DESIRE is the first book in her Gilded Passions series. Huge congrats again, Alice!

aliciaKINDLEWhat if the only thing that could save you — was the thing you feared most?

Naive, destitute and alone, Ellie Baker’s world crumbles when she’s kidnapped and forced into a brothel to repay her father’s mistakes. Betrayed to the core, Ellie vows to never trust another man—even Gabriel Peterson, her favorite childhood friend. 



Gabriel can’t get past his mother’s brutal murder. Drinking, gambling and whoring help him forget, yet his guilt-ridden habits have made him a social outcast. When the girl from his youth confronts him, he is shocked out of despair and vows to help Ellie escape… But can he break free of his own demons?

Neither expects the reunion to last—until their lives overlap in unimaginable ways. When Ellie helps Gabriel in his quest for vengeance, she can’t deny their forbidden attraction. Being together feels dangerous, yet how can Ellie resist, when his slightest touch makes her body ache for more?

With reputations in the balance, these two must learn to trust in themselves—or risk losing the only love they’ve ever known.

Stalk Alice on Facebook! Tweet with her too! She’s rarely on Twitter, but maybe if we all bug her on there, she’ll tweet more! Grin

Alice is also an amazing artist. She drew this picture of Luke and Sela from KISSING THE MAID OF HONOR for me. I just wanna cry every time I look at it. It’s so awesome.

Happy Thursday!

P.S. Tomorrow’s the day I skydive for the first time! Woot! I’m super excited and hope the rain here in not-so-sunny California clears out in time. I’m ready. Like now! LOL What’s one thing on your bucket list?

Nothing But Trouble + a giveaway!

37 comments

Categories: Books, Entangled Publishing, Giveaway

I’m so happy to have my friend JL Hammer take over my blog this week! Her newest release, NOTHING BUT TROUBLE is out today from Entangled Publishing and she’s celebrating with a giveaway right here! The book sounds so great and I can’t wait to read it! I hope you’ll 1-click just like I did! Take it away, JL…

Thank you to the amazing Robin Bielman for hosting me on this exciting day. NOTHING BUT TROUBLE (Vegas Vixens series book #1) from Entangled Select Suspense is now out! And to make things even sweeter, for a limited time the book is on sale for only .99 cents! I loved writing this story because it has high-stakes danger and a sinfully hot deputy sheriff. I don’t know about you, but I find a man in uniform absolutely tempting.

 Nothing But Trouble coverShe’s the kind of trouble he can’t resist …

 

With an angry loan shark hot on her heels, Frankie Delenski flees a Vegas gentlemen’s club with one thought in mind: hide before she’s nothing more than a chalk outline. Now on the run…she finds herself stranded in a sleepy Colorado town during a storm. Her only salvation becomes the suspicious and gorgeous deputy sheriff determined to arrest her…

 

From the get-go, Wes Malone must restrain his lust for this stunning, unpredictable woman in a sequined bra and rely on his instincts as a cop. As he sifts through the haze of lies, the truth about her predicament is like a sucker punch to the gut. She’s in serious danger and getting involved with her means nothing but sweet, irresistible trouble…

 

Find all the BUY LINKS and read the first chapter HERE!

 

Sneak Peak:

She took a moment to study the virile man before her. The strippers worked their clients into a mouth-drooling frenzy by a few shakes of their hips and a little lip-gnawing. If Frankie could work her charms on Deputy Malone, he would be at her beck and call. A strange thrill zinged through her.

With a sexy strut, she approached, giving him her best heated look. She brushed the tips of her polished nails across his chest. Hopefully, he hadn’t noticed the mud smeared across her hands or her missing pinky nail. His dark brows lifted and his expression was…amused. Determination

squared Frankie’s shoulders. With a thrust, she pushed out her well-padded female attributes.

“Can’t we just forget about all this? Couldn’t you just help me get my car out of the ditch and then let me go on my way?” She tried to purr, but it sounded more like she needed a throat lozenge.

“Are you hungry?” he asked.

She frowned and then remembered she was being seductive and smiled shyly. “Hungry?”

“Yeah. The way you keep chewing on your lower lip I figured you must be starving.”

Help! I need a saying!

Hey there! So, I’m busy writing the next book in my Kisses in the Sand series and having so much fun with my characters, Honor and Bryce, but I’m stuck on something and thought I’d reach out to my awesome friends and readers for help.

Here’s what I need: a witty, funny saying for Honor when she’s thinking about how delicious Bryce is. Something instead of “Oh, God.” Or “Holy moly.” Or “Oh my.” Some two-word exclamation that maybe hasn’t been used before.

Got any ideas for me? I’d love to use something from one of my readers in the book!
