#ThrowbackThursday Philly Comic Con & Laura Kaye

A couple of years back a group of us got together for a booth at Philly Comic Con. Stephanie Julian, Judi Fennell, Laura Kaye and myself had a blast there meeting people, selling books, and chasing after our own fav movie and television stars. Here’s a photo of Laura and me at our booth.

#WriteWed Happy Earth Day!

It seems like an appropriate day to discuss how nature inspires me when I write. Whether it’s providing a soothing backdrop for when I’m writing or an interesting location, Nature inspires me!

For the Sin Hunter, Take a Chance and Jersey Girl series, I was inspired by the beauty of my home state, especially the Jersey Shore.

For The Calling is Reborn series, it was New York City. I know you probably don’t associate tall skyscrapers and an urban locale with Nature, but there are many lovely areas filled with trees and flowers, like Bryant Park and this little slice of beauty – Herald Square.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Write Wednesday and Happy Earth Day to you all!

#TeaserTuesday One Night of Pleasure

One of my favorite stories is ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE. I loved Mark and Bridget and how they get together. I’m happy to say you’ll see more of them in EMBRACE THE NIGHT (early Summer). What I liked best about the story is Bridget discovering her sexy side, but even better, finding out that Mark loves her strength and courage more than her outer beauty. Mark is a smart man! LOL!

So here is an excerpt for you from ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE.

You can purchase ONE NIGHT OF PLEASURE at these retailers:

Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Box Set

Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Box Set

#1-#3 in the Jersey Girls
Contemporary Romance Series

April 15, 2015
Jersey Girls don’t pump gas, but they know how to get their man!


Seven years earlier, her engagement had ended in bitterness and pain . . .

Maya Alfonso was hopelessly in love with Alex Martinez, but their engagement came to an abrupt end. Maya vows never to make the same mistake again. Seven years later, she finds herself with a second chance at the love she had lost . . .

He wants nothing to do with a career-minded woman. . .

Alex’s ex-wife was a driven physician who wasn’t about to let either her husband or child get in the way of her career. When Maya comes back into his life, he wants nothing more than to have her in his life, but is she willing to sacrifice her hard-won career in exchange for love and family?


Brad Evans doesn’t understand why a woman like Daisy Ramos would be interested in a guy like him. . .

Falling for Daisy presents all kinds of problems. She’s one of his partners in a successful biotech company and the kind of woman who will drive a man to distraction. Brad’s not sure he can risk losing his focus or his heart to Daisy.

Daisy doesn’t believe that a confirmed bachelor like Brad will ever walk down the aisle . . .

Her logical mind says Brad is not a forever kind of guy and absolutely the wrong man for her, but her heart says something else.

NY Times & USA Today Bestseller

You can’t run from your past. . .

Handsome contractor Rey Ramos has good looks, brains, money, and a heart of gold. But Rey also has a deep dark secret that could scare off the woman who has captivated him.

Bianca’s gut is telling her to be leery of her new contractor. He’s just too good to be true. As Blanca uncovers the truth about Rey’s past, she becomes more and more attracted to the man he has become…

You can order the boxset at these retailers! It’s only 2.99 for all three full length books!

SEVEN SINFUL STORIES ~ The Second Collection

Seven Sinful StoriesSlip between the sheets with seven New York Times & USA Today bestselling authors in one anthology. These seven sizzling and sinful erotic stories are sure to burn up the pages!

A doomed woman. A dangerous and mysterious man. And an epic passion that cannot be denied…

BOND WITH ME by Anne Marsh
Fallen angel Brends Duranov offers Mischka Baran an unforgettable taste of sin and seduction when she visits his elite Moscow club, but she’s looking for her missing sister—and not an angel mate. But with a sadistic killer carving up his brethren, Brends is playing for keeps, hunting the one woman whose bloodline can end the mayhem, whose bond can restore his lost wings…and now he wants Mischka to bond with him.

PLANET MAIL by Kate Pearce
As far as job hazards go, Douglass Fraser didn’t think crash-landing on an alien planet and spending her recuperation being erotically pleasured by three gorgeous men was in the United Planetary Parcel Service’s courier handbook. There certainly wasn’t a section on what to do when a very sexy king wants you to have his baby and save his world.

UNMASQUED by Colette Gale
When not-as-proper-as-one-would-think Victorian woman Jane Clemons convinces her father to take her on a jungle expedition, her only goal is to find her lover, Jonathan, who disappeared three years earlier. But shortly after their party arrives in Madagascar, Jane finds herself enthralled not only by the freedom and beauty of the lush jungle, but a reclusive wild man who seems to be fascinated by her….

Powerhouse project manager, Kyra Benson, loves her new job. If only her domineering boss wasn’t the bane of her existence & a boon to her fantasies. X2 Games CEO, Bryan Ross, has devoted his life to his company. The last thing he needs is to get sidetracked by a woman who thinks she knows more about his business than he does. Can the two adversaries negotiate a truce & find love?

ONE LAST NIGHT by Caridad Pineiro
An act of compassion leads to unexpected pleasure . . .
Thrown together, Trevor and Maggie can’t ignore the sexual heat between them. As they satisfy one set of needs, another slowly develops as passion breathes life into other emotions. Will Trevor and Maggie’s one last night together possibly lead to many other nights in the future?

WARLORD’S DESTINY by Delilah Devlin
Mora has no illusions she’s anything other than the sacrificial lamb to ensure peace between her peace-loving planet and the warlike world that demands a royal union with one of their own. However, when she meets the rugged warlord who will be her husband, she decides in that moment to win his heart—she’ll settle for nothing less.

You can get Seven Sinful Stories – The Second Collection at these retailers! It’s specially priced at 2.99 and only available for a limited time!

#ThrowbackThursday Beauty & the Beast

One of my all time fav movies is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I think it got cheated out of the Oscar for Best Movie the year it was nominated. When we went to Disney last year, one of the most awesome moments was being able to have dinner at the Beast’s castle. The place is absolutely amazing and you feel as if you are stepping right into the movie.

This is a photo of my daughter and me with our host, the Beast.

#WriteWed The Boys of Summer & Jersey Girls

I love baseball which is what led me to write two baseball-themed books that you’ll see later in the year as part of the Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance series. I love the strategy of the game. I love that you can be any height or size to play. I love the uniforms, especially on cuties like David Wright.

Last night I got to go to the Mets-Phillies game with my daughter and here are some photos for you! But before I go – It’s also the release day for the Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Series #1. If you like sensual and emotional stories, I think you’ll like these novels with sexy heroes, smart women, and a glimpse of some very different parts of New Jersey! You can order the box set here:

#TeaserTuesday Taming the Bachelor

TAMING THE BACHELOR contemporary romanceI could so identify with Daisy Ramos, the heroine in TAMING THE BACHELOR, when I wrote that book. She was smart and a science geek. Two things that always seemed to turn off the men in her life even though she was also a very sexy woman. I think Daisy and I share two of the three traits – smart and science geeky. LOL!

Anyway, because of that, Daisy and this story of her finally finding a man who isn’t afraid of her is very special to me. I actually had an old high school crush confess to me many years after high school that he’d been afraid to ask me out because of those traits. Luckily I found a man strong enough to appreciate my many talents and who puts up with my not so neat form of organization.

Jersey Girls Contemporary Romance Box SetTAMING THE BACHELOR was re-released on April 1 and is specially priced at 99 cents. You can also get the book as part of the JERSEY GIRLS Contemporary Romance Box set which is available for pre-order and releases tomorrow. It’s priced at 2.99 for 3 books, so it’s still a bargain as well! You can order the box set here:

Amazon: http://bit.ly/JrzGrlAMZUS

#ManCandyMonday Grady Sizemore

It’s that time of year when a young woman’s mind turns to thoughts of sexy men in tight baseball uniforms! LOL! Yes, it’s baseball season and my Mets are at .500. Hoping for that and more this year!

Today’s Man Candy is one of the boys of summer: Grady Sizemore. Grady started his MLB career for the Cleveland Indians, but was signed by the Phillies for the 2015 season. Grady is a three-time All-Star choice, has won two Golden Gloves, and a Silver Slugger award.

What do you think? Isn’t he a cutie?
