More Contemporary #Romance in #NottingHill

The series that has been described as “funny and poignant” is back with another installment of hilarious dating-gone-wrong stories and heart melting happily-ever-afters.

Kiss Me, Chloe

Notting Hill Diaries – Book 2

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000032_00027]

Unlucky in love? That’s Chloe. She’s got a list of crazy dates and nutty suitors a mile long. If only she could break the cycle just once and find her Mr. Right.

Shattered dreams? Maybe. But Chloe isn’t the type to give up on love. Not to mention, there’s that sexy jazz musician she keeps running into…

Second chances? If she can get over her own insecurities about dating, she might just find out that Mr. Right is right under her nose.

Available in ebook on Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.

At last! The long awaited contemporary romance, Kissing Frogs, is finally here.

http://www.amazon.com/Kissing-Frogs-Notting-Hill-Diaries-ebook/dp/B00TKHAU4K/Bad dates? Kate’s had ‘em. As an American in London she’s discovered not every Englishman is Tom Hiddleston. There was the guy who wanted to suck her toes in public, and the guy who thought he was an alien. As in the kind from outer space.

Broken heart? Kate’s been there. After her husband left her for a hot Brazilian, her world came crashing down. Her heart and her confidence pretty much got thrown in a blender set to “chop.” Her only options were to run home to America with her tail between her legs, or put on her big girl panties and get on with life. She chose the latter.

Faith in men? Surprisingly restored by the dreamy Adam Wentworth whose kindness and wicked sense of humor send Kate’s damaged heart fluttering once again. After kissing so many frogs, she’s determined not to let this prince get away.

Available in paperback on Amazon and CreateSpace.

Of #ComicConPortland

I would have never thought ComicCon would be the sort of place where a geeky author like myself could hang out and talk books with geeky readers. What was I thinking? (Apparently, I wasn’t.) But my friend and fellow author, Miranda Mayer, convinced me it was perfect. She was right!

I had a blast. Met so many amazing people—readers, writers, artists, cosplayers. Sold a few books. Gave out loads of bookmarks. And let’s just say I am now addicted to ComicCon. In fact I’m totally gutted I can’t attend Rose City ComicCon this year (Or Emerald City, or Vancouver FanExpo) because of other commitments, but…there are other things on the horizon. Stay tuned!

A few images from the Con:

Anna’s life is falling apart. First she gets fired–totally not her fault!–and then she comes home to find her boyfriend in bed with the neighbor. But a job offer across the Pond gives her the perfect excuse to chuck it all and start again. As the nanny of adorable twins, she finds her new boss, Bella, cold and oh-so-proper, but Notting Hill is nothing short of magical.

The Next Installment of the Bestselling #Paranormal #Romance Series Is Finally Here!

Kissed by Eternity_300dpiKISSED BY ETERNITY

THE END IS HERE

Morgan Bailey’s complicated life–dragon boyfriend, witches, vampires to slay, the ongoing pursuit of coffee–is about to turn more complicated. The Fairy Queen is calling in a favor. She wants Morgan to exterminate the djinn. If that isn’t bad enough, her nemesis Alister has gone completely mad, and most alarmingly, Inigo isn’t quite himself. It’s enough to make a vampire hunter yearn for the simpler days: stake ‘em and leave ‘em.

But Morgan is more than a vampire hunter, she’s a vessel for colossal cosmic powers that yearn for release. Now, with the fate of the whole world in the balance, she’ll discover the secret to those powers, and learn what it means to be Kissed by Eternity.

THE END IS JUST THE BEGINNING…

Brace Yourself…#ComicCon Is Coming!

ComicCon

I can’t believe it! Portland ComicCon is just around the corner. And guess who’s going to be there? The delicious Sasha Roiz from Grimm! Guess who’s also going to be there? Norman Reedus aka Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. Can my nerdy heart even stand it?

That’s right, folks. I’m going to be there, too. I’ll be sharing a table with my friend and fellow costuming enthusiast, fantasy author Miranda Mayer.

I’m going to have plenty of paperbacks for sale and a whole lot of cool swag. So, stop by our table and say “hi.”
