SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE WANTS
Lola Vonn isn’t sure exactly when it happened, but sometime between ages seven and twentysomething, her best friend, Alex, got hot. Really hot. He’s hotter than the blazing Arizona sun—and definitely hotter than the nerdy-cute mathlete she grew up with. When she needs to crash at his apartment while looking for a place of her own, Alex becomes a temptation she can’t resist. But while unbuttoning Alex’s buttoned-up self is scorchingly fun, wild child Lola fears risking the best friend she’s ever had on a fling.
HE KNOWS WHAT SHE NEEDS
Alex Reed has wanted Lola since they were teenagers and now that she’s parading around his condo in sexy stilettos and short nighties, he can’t stop the more-than-just-friends fantasies he has every time he looks at his curvy, blonde roommate. Luckily he’s no longer the painfully dorky teenager he once was—and it’s high time he showed Lola that he’s the man for her.
I’m thrilled to be visting Cheyenne’s blog! I write all manner of romance—contemporary, new adult, paranormal, cowboy… All with a healthy dose of HOT! My publishers include Grand Central/Forever Romance, St. Martin’s Press and Harlequin.
This week was a particularly exciting one for me, with the release of Book 1 in my sexy “Leave Your Shoes On” series, What Lola Wants. Although I’ve had numerous book launches, this was my very first Big 5/New York debut. Tuesdays are Release Day and the frenzy is akin to being on the floor of the Stock Exchange! (At least, that’s how it felt to me!) The days leading up to a launch are pretty hectic, with interviews and reviews and whatnot, but it’s doing everything you can on your special day to reach readers—and knowing dozens of other authors are doing the same—that is a little overwhelming but also exhilarating. It’s days like this that make me so grateful for social media and the ability to connect with new readers!
While my backlist is slowly being re-released, I’m rolling out another NY debut book on October 6. Burned Deep is Book 1 of the “Burned Deep” trilogy that also includes a follow-on short novel for my sexy secondary hero.
It was a little scary how my body trembled and my breathing wouldn’t return to normal. But I couldn’t escape the intensity of our desire for each other—and how vibrant and alive he made me feel. Like I’d merely existed before. Gotten by. Now I was acutely aware of my surroundings. Of myself. Of him. Of every sensation blazing inside me…
Ari DeMille has spent her life focusing on the details and planning down to the minute. Haunted by her parents’ ugly divorce, Ari believes the only way to prevent emotional scars is to always maintain control. But when the devastatingly handsome—and powerfully dominant—Dane Bax, her new boss, pushes Ari’s boundaries, she must learn to shatter the ties that bind her if she is to sate her newfound desires… But giving into insatiable lust comes with a price. Dane’s luxury hotel business is threatened by a consortium of dangerous men who threaten everything Ari holds close. And as the stakes are raised, Ari is treacherously close to losing all control of her life…and her heart.
When I’m not writing, I love to travel, drink wine, and discover new recording artists on iHeart Radio. Actually, I do all of that while I’m writing! I also have two small dogs that are the light of my life—Nikki (Pomeranian) and Riley (Maltese)—in addition to my husband, of course!
