Tell me, tell me, tell me your top book of the summer! I need to know!!! (I feel like I’m stomping my feet like the girl in Willy Wonka). My June reads have been mixed with a few amazing ones and some slow ones! I’ve shared a couple of the good ones in the Hot Books below. Now, I’m ready for some more knock-your-socks-off, stay-with-you-for-the rest-of-your-life books. Do you have one? I hope you'll connect with me on my social media sites (below) or come on over to my Facebook group and let me know what it is.

Why am I writing and interrupting your summer vacation, you ask? Because, as always, I don’t want you to miss out on any of the fabulous giveaway chances that I have going. BUT REALLY, I’M WRITING BECAUSE I HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT MAC AND GEORGIE’S STORY. (Yes, yes, I know that was obnoxious yelling, but I can’t help it. I’m excited).

Remember when I told you last month that I had started on Mac’s standalone story for my Anchor novels? Well, I lied, because I hadn’t just started it. I had been working on it for about a month. And now I have two things to say!

  1. The story now has a title, FORGED BY SACRIFIC

  2. And, the draft is done, done, done!

Hold your horses. Don’t get too excited yet. I’m a sloooowwwww editor, so I’m still a few months from getting it into your hands. I don’t even have a release date yet, but I’m hoping I’ll have a better idea when I chat with you next month.

For now, I’m going to leave you with these images. I'll also be sharing an exclusive excerpt in my Facebook group on Tuesday, so maybe, maybe, maybe you might want to join?

If you add Forged to your To Be Read (TBR) Pile in Goodreads, you can enter for a chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card. Plus if you friend me on Facebook, I sometimes drop exclusive updates there (hint, hint).

Don’t know who Mac and Georgie are? You can catch a glimpse of them in Ava and Eli’s story – ♬ GUARDED DREAMS ♬ that released in May.

Every month, I give away a signed paperback to one newsletter subscriber. This month the winner was Wendy from Nebraska, and I'll be sending her a signed paperback of GUARDED DREAMS, I also do random surprise giveaways for other books, chocolates, music, and more in almost all my newsletters. If you aren't signed up, you're missing out.

My number one Hot Book this month is the lovely Kathryn Nolan’s BEHIND THE VEIL. This romantic suspense is sexy and intoxicating. It has a swoony, book loving hero and a sassy, kick-your-butt heroine who team up to find a stolen book and have to pretend to be married to do it. The fake marriage trope has never been so engaging!

I also read and adored, Jill Mansell’s MAYBE THIS TIME. It was a missed chances book that had truly feel-good characters that made me smile over and over again. It was a perfect beach read, if you’re looking for one.

My lovely friend, Clare Lesbirel, just released a new book in the 425 Madison Avenue Series today. It’s called SIGHT SEEING IN MANHATTAN. It’s got a couple steamy dancers and a sight challenged heroine.


In addition to doing giveaways in my newsletters, I also am routinely doing giveaways in my Facebook group. It’s also just a really great community of book and music lovers. As some of you know, I’m obsessed with the National Days right now―like today’s National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day. In my group, I’ll be asking folks to tell me what kind of creative flavors they think the ice cream world should come up with. Maybe you should come share your idea with us?

For my US friends, I hope you have a safe and beautiful Fourth of July, and for the rest of you around the world, I hope your July is full of memorable moments that keep your heart full.
