Red Lights, Black Hearts Cover Reveal!

I am beyond thrilled to show off this cover! I’ve had it sitting pretty on my computer for a few weeks now dying to share it with my readers. Red Lights, Black Hearts is an unconventional love story.

Synopsis

Darkness can be stained by light. Light can outshine the darkest of corners.

Behind a window in Amsterdam’s desired Red Light District, Samantha practices the art of seduction. Man after man, she controls them, seeking what they both want. But behind the façade of the glass, lies her truth waiting to be uncovered. An inner battle of light and dark takes place as Sam learns to release the past and truly live the beautiful tragedy that is life.

Red lights and black hearts collide in a tale of heart and soul.

Excerpt

We all walk in the shadow of something. A shadow of expectancy, of pride, of ego, of memories. For some that shadow is the companion to the lonely. My shadow has been my company for so many years. It has pushed me to fight and win. It has talked me into doing things and talked me out of them. Tonight, my shadow dances along with me with the peaked interest of my visitors. One in particular. My shadow seeks his across the snow-covered street, but it’s nowhere to be found.

I have come to terms that Max and I are connected. I have come to accept he is bound to my life for now. What I have not come to realize is my need to see him. I search for him among the audience in awe of the window of pleasure and pain. I shut him out with the thick scarlet curtains that adorn my palace, but seek him in the darkness of the night. The moon traveling in search for the light of the sun to give it purpose.

For a long time I haven’t had a purpose besides survive in a world that I know how to control. I use what I have to move and seduce, destruct the power of some for a little while. Make them beg for something only I can give them. It may seem twisted to some, but it gives me a high to know I can control them. It pushes me forward knowing I have the upper hand. The other option is unacceptable.

Now, my mind is starting to rouse with new purpose. I’m familiar with the symptoms, but I can’t diagnose the disease. This purpose can give new meaning or destroy the little I have left. It could shatter that glass window, or keep me enclosed forever.

Red Lights, Black Hearts

I shared this with my reader group this weekend. It’s the best way I can sum up this story: I’m sharing with you all a book about heart and soul. A story about growth and healing. I’m giving you a story about real life and the struggles that come tied to the ugliness life offers. It isn’t a happy story. It isn’t pretty and romantic. It’s hopeful. It’s honest, and it’s raw.

I am so looking forward to sharing Samantha’s story with you all! Mark your calendars for July 18th!

Happy Summer!

I love summer break almost as much as I love Thanksgiving (pumpkin pie wins, though). I hope you are all enjoying some warmer weather. It is hot here in South Florida—perfect for beach days.

As many of you know, this summer I am also releasing my sixth book. (When did that happen?!) I still get giddy when I finish a new book. It really never gets old, and part of that is thanks to all of you lovely readers. I get to share my stories with all of you. Red Lights, Black Hearts is different than my other books. It’s honest and raw. I’ve mentioned that before. I hope it makes you reflect and look at situations differently like it did for me. Mostly, I hope you connect with Sam and her story. She is a character that grows so much from beginning to end.

Red Lights, Black Hearts is set to release on July 18th. Keep an eye out for the cover reveal on June 27th. Kari from Cover to Cover Designs hit it out of the park with this one. I am also sharing an exclusive excerpt on my newsletter once my edits are back in. Don’t miss it! You can sign-up here: http://eepurl.com/bm9D0b.

Add Red Lights, Black Hearts to your TBR and check in for the cover reveal here or on any of my social media pages. I hope your summer is off to a great start, and you’re getting some great reading time in!

Teaser Excerpt~Whiskey Nights

I have been really busy these past few weeks making sure Whiskey Nights is perfect for release. I continue to fall more and more for Jake. He’s such a flirt, but he is also so kind and loving. This story has made me smile and cry. Writing it brought about a lot of emotions, and as I reread it, it still pulls at my heart-strings. Jake and Beth are definitely a hot couple, but they also have things to work through so they can achieve their happily ever after. Sometimes it’s harder than it seems. Sometimes we are tested and question our own dreams if it means giving up the person we love.

Whiskey Nights br teaser CS

This book is a realistic love story like Sweet on Wilde, with real life issues couples face and hot bedroom {or lake} scenes that will heat up your night. I am excited to share this story with all of you and hope to have a release soon. I am looking at early fall. In the meantime, I am going to share a teaser excerpt. 😉

“I got it, Dave.” Jake winks at me. “I know how she likes it.”

I take in a deep breath trying not to picture just how I would like it with him and say, “Don’t ya wish you knew.”

“I’ve got an idea or two.”

I notice Dave shake his head and pat Jake on the shoulder. He leaves him to fix my drink.

“Here you go darlin’.”

“Jake…” I warn.

“You shoot me down every time, but one day you’ll realize I’m not all talk. Until then I’ll just have to fantasize about that brief kiss. Or you can give me another one to make the memory sweeter.” His face is inches from mine, and I feel my breath catch in my ribcage.

“You’re such a flirt. You wouldn’t know what else to do, if I gave you the chance.”

“Trust me, I’d know plenty.” I watch his jaw clench and his arms flex under his t-shirt, a piece of his tattoo peeking from underneath the sleeve. What I’d do to see the entire thing. His baby blues are staring at me intently, and I squirm involuntarily. He smiles at my reaction and I curse at myself. So much for not letting him get to me.

“You tell that to all the girls?” I counteract.

“Nope. Just you, babe. You should know by now that I’m not looking for a one-night stand with you. I’m not that kinda guy.”

“Oh yeah? What are you looking for?” My own judgments about him clear in my question.

“More.”

One word. That’s all it takes to knock the air out of me. Jake and I have spent more time teasing each other then actually getting to know each other. How does he know he wants more? And how does he know he wants it with me? So much for trying to keep myself together! My entire body is betraying my emotions right now, and I have the urge to pull him in and kiss him. Experience a real kiss with him, but instead I stay silent.

“Enjoy that drink,” he says before walking down the bar to the customer who was calling out his name.
