Sneak Peek from In the Unlikely Event:

Chapter One
Present day
Rory

My life is contained in a round, beautiful snow globe.

The kind no one has bothered to pick up from the dusty shelf in years. Unshaken. Quiet and still. From the outside, my manicured Swiss village looks perfect. And it is. Kind of. At twenty-six, it appears I have my life together.

Perfect job.

Perfect apartment.

Perfect roommate.

Perfect boyfriend.

Perfect lies.

Well, they’re not lies, per se. All my accomplishments are real. I worked hard for them. Problem is, I promised eight years ago to give them all away in the blink of an eye if I bumped into him again. But back then, I wasn’t the same person I am today.

I was lost. Grieving. Broken. Confused.

Not that it matters, because that was then, and this is now, and it’s not him I’m staring at. Nope. There’s no way.

Release Blitz: Unspoken Words by K.M. Golland


Unspoken Words by K.M. Golland released a few days ago and I am featuring it today. Read on for more information about the book and author. There’s also a teaser image.

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Blurb:
This is a story of unspoken words and how loud they can be.

Unspoken Words, an all-new emotional and moving novel from K.M. Golland is available now!

Connor Bourke and I met when we were twelve years old. He was a quiet boy with so much to say and only one way to say it—through song. He’d lost his best friend to cancer, so I showed him there was love and life in loss, and to hold on to his memories, always.

Eloise Mitchell was a blazing fire when my world turned dark. She’d shined so bright and burned so fierce that the wall I’d built around myself simply melted to the ground at her feet.

We shared everything together:
Our first kiss,
first love,
first mistake,
and first regret.

She taught me to speak,
to forgive,
and to never forget.

Through his music, he could say all he needed to say except for, ‘I love you’.

I could never tell her those three words.

Yet, I knew he meant them, that he loved me beyond all measure, beyond time
… beyond a broken heart.

I loved her more than anything.

Our bond was unbreakable.

Our love was ever after.

But, then, we tend to destroy the ones we love most.

And all bonds break, especially when the heart is what holds them together.

About the Author:
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, K.M. Golland is a best-selling author with HarperCollins, and a ranty, married, mother of two who is quite happy to support a very healthy high heel obsession. A lover of rabbits, doughnuts, bridges, and cars, she traded her legal work for her love of writing and found her dream career.

Kennedy Boys Box Set: Release Day!

I have a MASSIVE sale for you today!! I combined books 4 -7 in my bestselling Kennedy Boys series in one handy box set and today is the release day for this special edition collection! I even got a hot new cover, featuring the gorgeous Justin Edwards, who is also on the cover of Seducing Kaden. I was lucky enough to meet him at Shameless Book Con last month, and I managed to get him to sign a couple of the books on the day.

Anyway, I’m digressing, lol. I know a lot of you are reading this series in Kindle Unlimited, and I wanted to give you a way to purchase the books without spending a fortune so for one week only you can purchase this box set for only $3.99! (£2.99 in the UK/Ireland, and $4.99 in Australia and Canada. €3.99 on all European stores.) That is four books for the price of one!

If you haven’t started this series yet, now is a great time to binge read! All four of these books can be read as standalone new adult romances, as they feature a different Kennedy brother and his love interest, but, for maximum reading enjoyment, I recommend starting with The Kyler Collection – Faye and Kyler’s taboo romance – as that is where we are first introduced to the characters. If you enjoyed my Rydeville High Elite series, I think you will love my Kennedy Boys series. As all are completed stories, with HEAs and no cliffys, you can binge read to your heart’s content! I’ve included links below to all the books to make it easy to check them out.

If you have already read any or all of these books. I would very much appreciate it if you could leave a (short) review on Amazon. Reviews are so important as they help inform the reader’s purchasing decisions. Reviews don’t have to be long, or technical, even a line or two will suffice! Thank you in advance for your support.

Kennedy Boys Box Set (The Kennedy Boys #4-7)
By Siobhan Davis

Blurb:
This box set includes four standalone new adult romances in the highly-addictive Kennedy Boys series from USA Today bestselling author, Siobhan Davis, and is over 1,100 pages of heart-stopping drama, intriguing twists and turns, and emotional, angsty romance. No cliffhangers. Dual POV. All books end with a HEA.

BOOKS IN THIS COLLECTION:

Loving Kalvinstandalone friends-to-lovers second-chance romance
I knew it would end in disaster, but I didn’t listen to reason. I didn’t care. Because I loved him so much.
Kalvin Kennedy ruled my heart.
Until he destroyed it.
Shattered it so completely that I became someone else. Someone I loathed. Someone who repeatedly lied to her loved ones.
So, I ran.
From him. From myself. Desperate to hide my new reality.
But I could only run so far.

Saving Bradstandalone enemies-to-lovers romance
I need to escape.
To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.
Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.
So, I do everything to blot it out.
Until he reappears in my life.
Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.
Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.
But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.

Seducing Kadenstandalone forbidden romance
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.
It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.
The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.
Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.
Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with one of my students, I won’t be the only one in danger.

Forgiving Kevenstandalone second-chance romance
They say you never forget your first love, but I’m determined to prove Keven Kennedy is just a random boy from my past.
It’s not like I still think about him after all this time. Or daydream about how hot his kisses were and what it felt like to have his hands on my skin.
Nope, that’s not me. I’m in a happy place in my life. Engaged to a great man and finishing the last year of my photography degree.
But since I returned to Massachusetts, everything reminds me of the boy who ripped my heart to shreds. Especially when my fiancé’s constant business trips, and dwindling attention, raises old fears to the surface.
And then the unthinkable happens—Keven saunters back into my life, turning it upside down once more.
It’s ironic he thinks he’s protecting me when the only one I need protecting from is him.

Release Day Blitz: Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


I am part of the release day blitz for Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward. Read on for more information about this new release.

Title: Dirty Letters
Author: Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
Series: stand
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Links:

Blurb:
I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.

Until one day it did.

Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.

Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.

Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.

But what I found could change everything.

Excerpt:
The small dining room table had a pile of mail. I’d had Dad’s mail forwarded to my house, so mostly it was just catalogs and junk. Once a month, Mrs. Cascio sent me everything that arrived, even though I’d told her it wasn’t necessary. I mindlessly fingered through the pile, not expecting to see anything worth keeping. But I stopped at an envelope addressed to me—well, not me, but Luca Ryan. That was a name I hadn’t heard in a long time. In second grade, my teacher, Mrs. Ryan, started a pen pal writing program with a small town in England. We weren’t allowed to use our real last names for safety reasons, so the entire class used her last name—hence I was Luca Ryan. I checked out the return address for the sender’s name.
G. Quinn
Wow, really? It couldn’t be.
I squinted at the postmark. It was from a PO box in California, not England, but I didn’t know any other Quinn other than Griffin. And the handwriting did look pretty familiar. But it had been close to eight years since we’d exchanged letters. Why would he write now? Curious, I ripped it open and scanned right to the bottom of the letter for the name. Sure enough, it was from Griffin. I started at the beginning.

Dear Luca,

Do you like scotch? I remember you said you didn’t like the taste of beer. But we never did get around to comparing our taste in hard liquor. Why is that, you might ask? Let me remind you—because you stopped answering my letters eight damn years ago. I wanted to let you know, I’m still pissed off about that. My mum used to say I hold grudges. But I prefer to think of it as I remember the facts. And the fact of the matter is, you suck. There, I’ve said it. I’ve been holding that shit in for a long time. Don’t get me wrong—I’m not obsessive or anything. I don’t sit in my house thinking about you all day long. In fact, there have been months that go by when thoughts of you don’t even enter my brain. But then some random thing will pop into my head out of the blue. Like I’ll see some kid in a pram eating black licorice, and I’ll think of you. Side note—I’ve tried it again as an adult, and I still think it tastes like the bottom of my shoe, so perhaps it’s that you just have no taste. You probably don’t even like scotch. Anyway, I’m sure this letter won’t find its way to you. Or if by some miracle it does, you won’t answer. But if you’re reading this, you should know two things.
1. The Macallan 1926 is worth the extra cash. Goes down smooth.
2. You SUCK.

Later, traitor, Griffin

What in the hell?

Excerpt

Abby
I thought true soul-deep love was a myth.
But I’m happy to prove myself wrong, because what we share goes deeper than flesh. It’s transcendental, and there will never be another man for me.
Kai is it.
For all time.
His mouth is on mine in a flash, and it doesn’t seem to matter that he’s hurt, because his lips and his tongue devour me with an intensity and a need that mirrors my own. He flattens his back against the side of the door, holding me flush against his rock-hard body as we ravish one another. And I can’t stop kissing him. I need his kisses like I need oxygen. I suck in his scent and his taste, and I plunder his lips and his mouth, not knowing when we will get to do this again.
When we eventually pull our lips apart, it’s only because we’re both struggling to breathe. He places his forehead on mine, holding me firmly at the waist. “Baby. I’ve missed you so much.”
I tighten my arms around his neck. “I’ve missed you too. I was so worried.” I dust his face with feather-soft kisses, touching every place where my father hurt him. “I was so scared he was going to kill you.” Tears pool in my eyes and I’m dangerously close to losing control of my emotions. “I’m so sorry he did this to you.”
“Shush, sweetheart.” He rubs his thumb along my swollen lower lip. “It’s not your fault. We were too careless. We should’ve had a protection detail with us. We won’t make that same mistake again.”
“That’s who those guys were out front?” I ask, remembering the four guys dressed all in black, blending into the shadows.
He nods, tucking me in under his arm, wincing at the motion. I try to shuck out from under his arm, but he holds me tighter. “Don’t. I don’t care that it hurts. I need you close.”
