"The Trouble With Love" BOOK TOUR!

As the old saying goes...  MY HOW TIME FLIES!


Yesterday, Thursday, I spent the first part of the day seriously believing it was Wednesday. Until I got a rude awakening. Gak! Then I spent the rest of the feeling discombobulated, llike I'd somehow lost a whole day! I'm beginning to worry about myself.

Meanwhile I am making tremendous progress in several areas. Writing and promotional projects. Busy times, but good times. I have a lot on my plate just now so I'm not sure if I'll be able to post again before release day. That's right. Release day--March 26--for THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE is just around the corner!

I'm proud to annouunce that I joined for with Lisa at Tasty Book Tours and she coordinated a monster virtual book tour for THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE over the next two weeks. Instead of writing a bunch of guest posts or participating in several interviews, this time around my goal was to simply get the word out about this book that I love so much. The cover, the blurb, a little bit about moi .... that's what you'll find at most of the blog stops--the goal being massive exposure. HOWEVER, we're also giving away five copies of TTWL. so please be sure to stop by and comment for a chance to win. Below is a listing of the two week tour!

Countdown to Rocky & Jayce

Fifteen days and counting down! I cannot WAIT to share Rocky and Jayce's story with you. But I'll have to. For fifteen more days. Although... I can share a snippet. An exclusive snippet not shown anywhere else. Right here on my shiny-new-looking blog. Makover compliments of Elle J Rossi of EJR Digital Art. I can't decide of the header art is sexy or romantic. I'm thinking both! Where was I? Ah, yes....


“Are you going to beg off next Sunday and the Sunday after that? Avoid J.T.’s on the off chance I might be shopping there? Shun the Sugar Shack in case I drop by for drinks or dinner? If you think I’m going to boycott Moose-a-lotta, think again. Aside from the Burkes, the Monroes are the most influential family in Sugar Creek. Your relatives are everywhere and they’re an important part of my life. I won’t be a hermit and I’m not leaving town,” he said calmly. “You’re going to have to live with that. With me and what’s burning between us.”

Rocky spun so fast she neglected to switch off the mixer. Icing splattered everywhere! On her. On Jayce. The counter and floor. Flustered, she cut the power and returned the beaters to the bowl. Heart pounding, she turned to give Jayce hell, only his intimate proximity stole away her breath.

“If I taste and like,” he said, cupping the back of her neck and pulling her close. “Can I have?”

Her inner thighs tingled. Oh, no. She tried to object when he licked icing from her cheek, but all that came out was a low lusty groan.


“Honey-cream-cheese,” she said in a breathy voice.

“Rocky Monroe.”

Oh, God.

He licked and nibbled her chin, her ear.

Rocky could feel herself slipping under Jayce’s spell. Control. Take control! She licked a splatter of icing from the corner of his mouth, bit his lower lip in order to warn him off, break the spell, but the aggressive move backfired. A sensual thrill shot through her when he winced then counteracted with a punishing kiss, a kiss that melted the last of her feeble resistance.

They were all over each other. Grappling. Kissing.

Next thing she knew half their clothes were in a puddle on the floor. She should care, but she didn’t. She should stop, but she couldn’t.
