Katherine Whitton doesn’t purposely avoid men and relationships, but she doesn’t mind that side effect of immersing herself in her job with the San Francisco Blaze. Years ago she was betrayed by her one true love, and she’s never fully recovered, though she’s tried by building a new life in a city she loves.

It’s taken seventeen years for Tom Morgan to get over Katie—Katherine now. Sober now and faced with the incredible opportunity to manage the Blaze, he thinks he’ll finally be able to handle working with this beautiful woman without falling to pieces…as long as she doesn’t get too close.

A crisis with the team’s star pitcher forces Tom and Katherine to put in long hours together. Years of animosity melt away as the sexual tension between them ignites. But it’ll take more than scorching kisses to avoid the wreckage of the past. And neither Tom nor Katie are sure they’re ready to trust each other or risk their hearts for a second chance at happiness.

What’s Coming in 2015!

Coming Soon without cover

Wow! It’s 2015. I’m not sure about you, but that completely boggles my mind. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and are enjoying the New Year so far.

Since my last blog post in September, I’ve been working hard to complete two writing projects, and I’m happy to say that both of them were done before the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve.

Firstly, I’m thrilled to announce that Hearts on Fire, my super-secret novella (47,000 words), will have its cover reveal on January 19th, and will be published on February 3rd. Hearts on Fire is not a part of my Feeling the Heat series, it’s a stand alone story and features two young country musicians reconnecting just before an important concert in Las Vegas. You’ll find out more about the characters, and the story, on cover reveal day. I really enjoyed writing this book. I hope you’re as excited about Hearts on Fire as I am!

In more good news, the next installment in my Feeling the Heat series has been turned into my editor, and from what I understand, it will be published in July of this year. Originally titled Game Change, it underwent a title change at Carina Press, and the new title is Stealing Second.

Stealing Second marks a return to San Francisco, and the Blaze professional baseball team. The story takes place during the season, with the Blaze, once again, trying to fight their way into the post-season. Stay tuned for more information and a cover reveal!

 

 

Spring is Here and the News is Good

There’s something about Spring that just makes me happy. Perhaps it’s because I’m not the biggest fan of winter, and never have been. Judging by that statement you might think I grew up in a part of the country where people endure an endlessly long winter complete with snow, blizzards and ice storms. Nope. Not this girl. I grew up in California and I now live in the high-desert. My winters have been pretty mild, to say the least. But as I’m the biggest wimp on the planet when it comes to being cold, I’m not fond of even a mild, snow-less winter.

I took the picture at the top of this post a month ago. In February! See those beautiful pink blooms on the trees? They’re gorgeous, aren’t they? I never tire of seeing them and I never will. To me, those blooms mean Winter is on its way out and Spring is on its way in. Time for celebration!

There’s more to celebrate than Spring, though. You’re hearing it here first. I recently signed another contract with Carina Press. A two-book deal that will have me continuing my Feeling the Heat series through next year. Yay! I’m super excited to be writing for Carina Press and working with my amazing editor, Angela James.  It’s been a wonderful experience, and I can’t say enough about everyone at Carina Press or my fellow CP authors. They’re the best!

So…what’s up book-wise, you may be wondering. 🙂   Well, as many of you know, Catching Heat, featuring J.T. Sawyer and Angie DeMarco was released last month. Afterward, I heard from a number of readers that they wanted more of the Sawyer brothers. Especially Jake. Your wish has been granted, my friends! LOL. My next book will feature Jake and Melissa, whom you met briefly in Catching Heat. The book started out as a novella, but I’m happy to report that its evolved into a longer novel. I don’t have an official release date as of this posting but as soon as I do, I’ll let you know.

After that, it’s back to baseball with another San Francisco Blaze story. Details on that one coming soon!

To those of you still enduring cold weather, you have my deepest sympathy. But you’ll have the last laugh when you’re enjoying your beautiful summer and I’m hibernating indoors for three months straight due to the 100 + degree heat. It’s brutal, my friends. Brutal.
