Cover Re-Reveal & Cover Reveal – Be A Doll & Take a Chance

Hi lovelies,

I don’t have one but TWO cover reveals! This is always exciting for me. 🙂

As you know, I’ve been debating between changing Be A Doll‘s cover or not, but after consulting readers and author friends, I’ve decided to change the cover. There’s not a better time to reveal the new cover than doing it when revealing the spin-off novella’s cover.

Are you ready to drool?

Be A Doll change of cover essai

At Carter Manor, women were groomed to become the perfect next trophy wife for the most influential and powerful men in the world.
Polished, educated, and disciplined… they met every criteria.
Or did they?

LILA

After escaping two prospective husbands, I knew I didn’t have much of a choice anymore but to play by the rules if I didn’t want to end up back in the streets.
Upon meeting him I expected an older disgusting man, but he proved me wrong.
He was young, handsome… and despicable.
His cold hearted behavior and condescension caused me to lose my carefully built appearance of sophistication, but somehow, it made me win a husband who enjoyed toying with me until he could break the last pieces of who I used to be. I wouldn’t let him.
I hated him.
At least I did at first, until I had a peek underneath his walls and discovered the kind of pain he shouldered.

MATHIS

I never thought I’d get married and even less that I would be purchasing my wife, but for my business I would do anything.
At the Manor, I was sure I’d find bland women so polished that nothing of their own personality was left. But one candidate couldn’t hide the fire in her.
I was drawn, ready to toy with her, to tease her until she folded for me and let me take her to make her fully mine and not in name only.
I didn’t want love, I didn’t want her to be in my living space and I certainly didn’t want her to see who I really was under the facade I had spent years shaping myself to be, but that was exactly what was happening.
She fascinated me.
Her strength made me want her in the most all-consuming way.
Now I wondered who possessed whom.

essai cover megan & chance novella

Release: Late February/Early March

MEGAN

Ever since my brother brought Chance Atwood home during their freshman year in college, I’ve been in love with him. I couldn’t explain it or find a way to silence my stupid heart.
I’ve ignored those feelings for years, but watching Chance pick up a woman at my brother’s very unconventional wedding told me that I couldn’t keep on inflicting this kind of heartbreak on myself.
When a date with another man failed to make me forget the searing blue eyes I daydreamed of on a daily basis, I realized I had to take matters into my own hands by putting an end to this and see if my hopes were as ridiculous as I feared.
It was time to either give wings to my little heart or shatter the damn thing.

CHANCE

When Megan Grimes, my best friend’s little sister, told me she loved me it was the single most insane moment of my life. It beat the day her brother announced his plan to “purchase” a wife.
Like any self-absorbed man who had never noticed a friend’s sister before, I handled it poorly.
But the trouble was, I couldn’t forget Megan’s soft eyes, the pain I inflicted her and more than everything, her beauty stunned me.
When she came back after fleeing the city, I had to see her, talk to her… and kiss her.
As she consumed me more and more, I should have come clean to her brother, but he wasn’t the most sympathetic man there was, and I owed him everything.
Conflicted like never before, I risked losing my very heart, the one thing that had no price tag, for a lifestyle I had thought was everything.

Megan took a chance; it was time Chance did the same.

** For readers over 18. It’s best to read BE A DOLL first. **

GOODREADS


What do you think?

For info: Be A Doll is a long slow burn with angst and a lot of sexual tension. Take a Chance is a novella that’s sweet, cute with a little bit of sexy thrown in. 😉

I did a thing…

Hi lovelies,

I hope you had or are having a great weekend. For me, it’s a productive one since I’m hurrying to finish the first draft of a novella my editor expects next week. I have three scenes left to write and then… the end! 

This past week was scary, thrilling and quite crazy with the release of my new book MESSY LOVE. By the way, it’s still $0.99 but not for much longer so don’t wait!

By now, you must be wondering what I did that justified a new post on the blog. Let me explain.

A while ago, I did a poll asking readers if they would prefer I keep my novel Be A Doll in Kindle Unlimited or if I published it wide, meaning that it would be available on iTunes, Kobo and B&N. It appeared that you wanted Be A Doll available on other stores.

And I finally did it!

Be A Doll is available on Amazon, but also iTunes, Kobo and B&N. What do you think?

If you don’t remember what Be A Doll is about, let me remind you. 😉

Messy Love is LIVE early! & giveaway

Messy Love - Live sale for limited time

Hi lovelies,

This is completely crazy, but MESSY LOVE is live early and only $0.99 or FREE with KU.

Why is it crazy, you ask?

The release date was January 12, but considering Amazon asks for up to 72 hours to list a book on their website, I decided to hit publish today but it only took me 4 hours to get Messy Love published. 4 hours! This isn’t great news because now nothing is set to promote the book for days. :/

But let’s focus on the good.

I have a new book published! 😀

Grab Messy Love while it’s on sale for only $0.99 or FREE with KindleUnlimited. The sale won’t last long so you better hurry. 

So now that the book is out, I need to promote it as much as possible and it starts with a nice giveaway on my Facebook Page. Head over there and check out the pinned post for instructions in order to win a $25 Amazon GC. Good luck!

MARISSA

The first time I laid eyes on Wyatt Burton was outside of my biological mother’s house. Abandoning me twenty years ago, I never knew that meeting her would change my life so completely. In fact, there were many things that I never expected that day, but there were a few things I knew for sure. Nothing would ever be the same–not even me. And it was all about to get very MESSY.

WYATT

Marissa Thornton deserved so much. She was beautiful beyond reason and never took my shit. She drew me in, while driving out the worst in me. But when she let me in, trusted me completely, I thought I could finally let down my guard and find true happiness. I was wrong. Dead wrong, about myself, about her, and most importantly about the binds of LOVE.

I know it’s been a while and I’m sure that I’ve succeeded in ruining the release, but I’m hoping some of you are still waiting for this book.

Since it’s Tuesday, I thought I’d share another teaser while my editor is working on the second round of edits.

And if you’re wondering, the release is just days away.

Messy Love – the cover before/after

Hi, lovelies!

When I revealed the cover of my next standalone contemporary romance novel, the positive feedbacks I received blew me away. I can’t tell you how happy that made me and how hopeful I am for a great release. Of course, since then I’ve had enough time to stress and remember that you can forget all about Messy Love and how much you initially wanted to read it.

So, while I wait with baited breath for more responses to the prologue reveal (fingers crossed), I’ve decided to post a before/after graphic to show you the picture before and the cover after.

Here you go!

before & after messy love cover

As you can see I’ve changed it a lot. I added tattoos, played with the lights/exposition and then took some “artistic” liberties. lol

It took me a while to make this cover, but now it’s probably my favorite from all of my books published.

If Messy Love is well-received and if you’re interested, I’d like to write a spin-off (standalone) novel featuring two secondary characters from Messy Love and I bet that cover will be even more challenging. 😮

I hope you like this cover as much as I do and if you’d like to add Messy Love to your to-read shelf on Goodreads CLICK HERE.

PROLOGUE

WYATT

  I had always thought that being a good person was easy. I had been so damn wrong I’d laugh if only my fucking heart weren’t about to irremediably break and if I wasn’t so scared. 

  Being good wasn’t easy. Doing something good for someone else could very well ruin you and leave you with nothing but darkness. I was about to experience that first hand.

  I looked down at the old and battered stuffed turtle with a missing leg in my hands. One tiny object changed everything right when I was just starting to turn my life around, right when I was making an effort to make her happy. 

  “What’s that?’’ 

  Her soft voice full of sleep after a night I was sure to cherish for the rest of my days made me tighten my grip around the turtle until some puffy white stuffing fell at my bare feet. 

  I closed the door and turned around to stare at the most beautiful woman I had ever met, a beautiful woman who turned my life upside down months ago and forced me to be a better man. 

  But if I wanted to be truly better I needed to break her heart and mine.

  My life had always been a mess and every time I had thought things were looking up and I dropped my guard something else came up. With her in my arms all night long, I had thought that I had a fucking right to be happy and claim my damn happy ending. I believed that because I fucking loved her with all my destroyed and poisoned heart I could be with her because she saw the ugly in me and still wanted me, even after all the pain I caused her. But no. I couldn’t have her.

  I swallowed past the tightness in my throat and lost myself in her eyes. 

  She knew me, so much better than I thought possible. I didn’t need to utter a word for her to understand I was gearing up to hurt her. 

  She took a step back, shook her head once and looked away. She was already retreating from me, and it cut me so deep I wouldn’t feel less pain or less weak if I was bleeding all over the place.

  “Please, don’t.’’ The plea in her voice was my undoing. Shit. How could I do this after everything? 

  I closed my eyes and turned my back to her. I needed to hide. I couldn’t do this if she kept on looking at me like that, with all that pain etched over her face. But before I could find my voice, hers tore through me.

  “If you do this again, I’m not coming back this time, Wyatt.’’

  My eyes fell on that fucking stuffed turtle so old it smelled of mold and dirt. I didn’t have a choice. I needed to protect her. She thought I was only reverting to my old habits, hurting her just because I was scared, but this time was different. 

  I had an excellent reason to get her out of my life. I needed to remember that. 

  I closed my eyes, didn’t turn around and said the words I knew would haunt me for the rest of my life.

  “Then go.’’
