Meet Run to You’s Ethan Hunter

Run to You coverRun to You is set in the fictional town of Haven, located in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains and is the first full-length book in my new Risking It All series. In this series, you’ll meet three thrill-seeking former foster brothers who’ve joined forces to open an extreme outdoor adventure facility. These guys live for their next adventure, but they’ll discover that falling in love is the biggest adrenaline rush of all.

I absolutely can’t wait to introduce you to Run to You’s leading man, Ethan Hunter. Charming and adventurous, Ethan has dated more than his fair share of pretty ladies in town. With his tousled blond hair, blue eyes, and washboard abs, there’s no shortage of women wanting to call themselves Mrs. Hunter, but Ethan never lets his relationships get serious. Behind his easygoing facade, painful scars from his childhood have kept this bad boy with a soft heart from settling down.

Swimming flyFun fact: Eight years ago, Ethan won two gold medals and one silver as a swimmer in the Beijing Olympics. I will definitely be thinking of him when I watch the swimmers compete in Rio this August! Ethan still swims laps every morning, a practice ingrained in him from his years of Olympic training, and coaches the local high school swim team.

Ethan has also built an epic zip-line course for his new outdoor adventure business, Off-the-Grid Adventures, and he couldn’t be more excited about it. But tragic news from his beloved grandmother and an unexpected run-in with new-in-town Gabby Winters soon turn his life upside down…

#TeaserTuesday, July 4th Style! :)

Run to You teaser 1

Meet Rock with You’s Sam Weiss

RockwithYou2_RGB301 (4)My new Risking It All series kicks off on August 2nd with Rock with You, a sexy little novella where you’ll meet rock star Sam Weiss. Sam’s got a (mostly deserved) bad boy reputation in Hollywood. He’s one of the hottest rock stars in America, after all, and there’s no shortage of women looking for a romp in his sheets. Everyone wants a piece of him, and he’s happy to share. But after a series of bad press, Sam’s manager ships him off to a secluded mountain cabin to stay out of the tabloids until things have died down.

Holed up in his cabin in Haven, a small town nestled in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains, Sam feels like he’s lost a bit of himself. He hasn’t written a song in months…not until he walks into A Piece of Cake Bakery one morning and meets Carly Taylor. There’s a spark between them, sure. But she also sparks his muse. When they’re trapped together at his cabin during an ice storm, Sam discovers that Carly might be the missing piece he never knew he needed. But can they find a way to turn two hot nights under the cover of ice into a promise of forever?

Are You Ready to Risk It All?

The Mountains are Calling...

I have a new series coming in August, and I can’t wait to introduce you to the sexy, adventurous heroes and kick-butt heroines of Haven, North Carolina. The series is called Risking It All, and it opens with a hot little novella called Rock with You. I confess…the mountains have been calling my name a lot lately, and I was thrilled to set this series in the Smoky Mountains. You’ll see why in a minute 😉

shutterstock_134985203 - smallFirst off, you’ll meet rock star Sam Weiss. Fresh from a tabloid scandal, his manager ships him off to a secluded cabin in the mountains to stay out of the headlines until he’s written his next big hit. Throw in an unexpected ice storm and a spunky bakery owner, and Sam’s found his muse again, but can he leave her behind to return to his life in LA?

Next up are three thrill-seeking former foster brothers who’ve joined forces to open an extreme outdoor adventure facility. Yeah, we’re talking zip-lining, rock climbing, outdoor survival skills, and the like. These guys live for their next adventure, but they’re about to discover that falling in love is the biggest adrenaline rush of all.

shutterstock_437334520 - smallIn Run to You, you’ll meet Ethan Hunter. With his tousled blond hair, blue eyes, and ready smile, he’s charming the panties off women all over Haven. But behind his easygoing facade, painful scars from his childhood have kept Ethan from opening his heart.

Ryan Blake is up next in Crazy for You. Ryan’s got the tats, the bike, and the reputation to go with them, but trust me, this semi-reformed bad boy’s got a heart of gold.

shutterstock_106243226 - small - croppedMark Dalton has to wait the longest for his HEA (but I promise it’ll be worth the wait) in book 3, Can’t Forget You. Mark is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome and a man of few words. A scar slashing his right cheek is the only visible reminder of the accident that ended his career in the Army’s Special Forces, but there are others, scars that run much deeper, all the way to his heart.

I am crazy in love with all four of these guys, and over the next few weeks I’m going to do a series of blog posts introducing them to you in more detail. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! :)

Only You is available now!

Only YouIt’s release day for my first novella, ONLY YOU, and I’m so excited to share Amy and Luke’s story with you! Best of all? It can be yours for just 99 pennies through the month of April! This is a second chance romance, and while it’s the last release in my Dogwood series, I wrote it as a standalone so it also makes a great introduction to the series if you are new to my books.

He was her first. But will he be her last?

Amy Jameson has one priority these days: her eight-year-old autistic son. Everything else will just have to wait, including her love life. When she agrees to let a friend hold her wedding in Amy’s backyard, she may have bitten off more than she can chew, especially when the man who shows up to help her get the place ready is none other than the only man she’s ever loved, Luke Benson. 

Luke has always considered Amy “the one that got away.” He loved her and lost her back in high school, but when he returns to his hometown of Dogwood, North Carolina, for a friend’s wedding, he finds himself falling right back into her arms. He walked away once and broke her heart, but he wants to prove that he’s a different man now, a better man, the kind of man who will love her forever.

COVER REVEAL: Run to You

By now, you may have heard me talking about the new series I have coming this summer from Grand Central Publishing. There will be an introductory novella (on Aug 2nd), but the first full-length book comes out on August 30th. It’s called Run to You, and I am so very excited for you all to read it! The hero, Ethan Hunter, is a former Olympic champion swimmer, and coincidentally (or not *wink wink*), the book comes out right after the summer Olympics. I’ll have more info for you guys this summer about the book and the series, but for now, enjoy . . .

Run to You cover

ONE LITTLE LIE. A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE.

Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellowjackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital “hot,” and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there’s nowhere to hide from Ethan’s sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.

At the center of the town’s matchmaking is Ethan’s grandmother, who’s convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there’s serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won’t fool just the entire town – they might fool themselves too . . .
