New Release!

It’s release day for my alter-ego’s book, Kat’s Song.  BUY LINK

Blurb:

Kat McKay’s heart is locked tight against further entanglements. Determined not to give it again, she’s abandoned all hope of love and holds herself apart from men. The last one did a number on her and she’s never going there again.

Paul Baker, world-renowned musician, keeps his deepest secret close to his heart. He’s as determined as Kat McKay not to let his heart get stomped on. The difference is, his isn’t personal. It’s public.

Out of necessity, the two of them join together. One with a motive to protect and the other reluctant to be protected. Their competing desires threaten to derail them both. Resolution can only be made at great risk.

Badurday- April 6, 2013- Clive Owen and a Sale

Let’s revisit a prior bad boy this week. Clive Owen is one of my favorite actors. He’s drop dead sexy and has a wonderful strong thigh and great forearms (Yes, I’m crazy but those are the areas I like in a man). He was the inspiration for my Interpol hero in my book Hot Pursuit. It’s a wild romp across the globe and is half for the month of April at Allromanceebooks. It’s only $3.25 for a full length (85000 word) novel. You can check out the excerpt here.MV5BMjA4MzAyOTc5Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwOTQ5NzEzMg@@._V1._SY314_CR12,0,214,314_

Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type).

Racing across the globe to help a client isn’t part of corporate lawyer Evangeline Fleet’s normal legal services, but this is no ordinary client. She’s the beloved daughter of an old family friend. In her efforts to save the girl, Evangeline gets in over her head when sexy Interpol agent Cecil Waugh enters the picture in hot pursuit of her client. He follows the lawyer on an international chase from New York City to Rio de Janeiro, where they forget their differences long enough to fall into bed. Before the sheets can even cool Evangeline makes a daring escape, leaving her lover behind.
Relentless in his quest to find Evangeline’s client, Cecil continues the chase across Europe. But it soon becomes unclear who his main target is—Evangeline’s charge, or the spitfire of a woman herself. Only time will tell how hot this pursuit will become.

Badurday- February 2, 2013- New Release

CarversFall_MED
It seems all I do is talk about new releases. I’ve been on a short story kick lately and this one that released this week is no exception. In fact, the one that I’m going to chat about here is under 40 pages. The final editor even left me a comment that said she loved it so much that she wished it was longer. I’m thrilled with that since I’ve been going through another one of those spells about if I’m spinning my wheels! LOL! We writers and our angst about being good enough, huh?

This story is set in the 1920s and the characters are named after my great-grandparents who I loved dearly. This is a mystery/romance and I hope the readers love it as much as I do. The cover is awesome and the cover artist, Dawne Dominique nailed my vision of this story.

BLURB:
In 1924, Carver Fowler, a young man raised on his family’s farm in North Alabama, has long been in love with one of the girls who lives in town. Her name is Mallie Phillips. Mallie has always treated Carver as beneath her notice since in her opinion he’s nothing but a country yokel. The county’s fall festival is soon and, as a joke, Mallie is dared by a friend to ask Carver to be her date to the party. Mallie takes her up on the dare and visits Carver to invite him to accompany her to the festivities. In the midst of all the intrigue about whether Carver will be her date or not, a young man is killed and another is attacked. Carver becomes a suspect and Mallie begins to understand that Carver may not merely be the backwoods boy she thought he was.

Badurday- January 19, 2013- Tavares

I wrote a short story this week with the heroine age 46 and the hero age 55. I thought it was time for me to do that since that’s my demographic now. LOL! I plan to submit it this weekend. I think there’s at least one more story with these characters so I think I’m going to be visiting with them some more. I started this story back in December but concentrated on getting it finished this week. It was initially called, The Stranger. I since decided to rename it in honor of the Tavares song, It only Takes a Minute, Girl but to stop any confusion about whether the story is about a quickie or not, I’m extending the title of the story to include more of the song so the title is It Only Takes a Minute to Fall in Love.
Here’s the video of it from Youtube:

I also have a new release this week on Tuesday- it’s called Doctor, Lover, Baronet and is available on preorder here at this link. It’s at a 10% discount until the 29th of January.

Casey Crow- Special Badurday Guest

 

JILLIAN: Today’s guest is a fellow Gulf Coast Chapter RWA member and she has her first book coming out on December 6. We are all so happy for her. She’s here to tell us the best things about what she thinks are the best things about the South.  Take it away, Casey.

CASEY:  Best Things about the South

By: Casey Crow

Thank you, Southern Sizzlers, for having me today! I’m so excited about all the recent success and releases you’ve been having! I’m excited, too, to share my debut CAN’T FAKE THIS which comes out Dec. 6th with Loose, id. On that day, I’m having a blog party at Casey Crow where twelve authors are doing twelve give-aways to go along with the Twelve Days of Christmas theme in the story. Mark your calendar to win some great books by best sellers from all genres!

CAN’T FAKE THIS is about a divorcee ready to reenter the dating world. Anna Ryan is determined to be the best “product on the market,” which requires a lot more experience so she propositions sexy police officer Chase Harris to teach her how to make hot, passionate love as opposed to just having sex. He takes it a step further, instructing each lesson based on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…temptation in a hot package. For more, check out the book trailer and excerpt!

The story definitely has my “Sexy, Sassy & Southern” trademark. Speaking of the South (and what’s more appropriate to talk about at the Southern Sizzlers?), I’ve put together my list of Top 10 Favorite Things about the South.

1. Sweet tea and sweeter accents    

2. Macaroni & cheese is a vegetable and pecan pie is a staple 

3. Y’all is a proper noun  

4. Smocked dresses and hairbows as big as a little girl’s head

5. Front porches are wide and words are long  

6. Sultry summer nights that start in April   

7. Mardi Gras   

8. SEC football

9. Pageants are serious business  

10. Everything is darlin’ and someone’s heart is always blessed

So what are your favorite things about where you live? I hope you’ll take advantage of the uniqueness of your area and enjoy it, no matter where you hail.

My road to publishing a novel

Just got word last night that another of my short stories will be in an anthology to be published this fall- The anthology is called “Christmas in Outer Space” and my story is called “Christmas on Bethlehem Star” – I really am proud to have been chosen for this anthology because Sci Fi is really not my thing but I must be better at it than I thought. It IS a romance but it was weird basing it in outer space. I am thrilled that the editor called my story “delightful.”    That makes me happy.    I will post a link when the book is ready to order.

The hero in my new WIP is an Italian shoe designer, Dario DeLuca. In honor of him, here is a Scotsman named Dario, Dario Francitti
