Teaser Tuesday

Too True To Be Good, first kiss

Too True To Be GoodI can’t believe Too True To Be Good will be out in a week! I always get so nervous about a book right before it comes out. But going back to the first kiss makes me feel better.

Gianna and Zach aren’t totally sure about each other. There’s definitely something there, but neither thinks it’s more than lust. Still, that doesn’t stop them from testing the waters.

Excerpt from Too True To Be Good

She said she didn’t want him. That he wasn’t her type, or her fantasy. That she was going home and didn’t want to get involved.

But he didn’t fucking care.

He wanted her enough for both of them.

He meant what he said. She needed to relax, to enjoy things a bit. To let someone take care of her for once.

No, he wasn’t the man for the job, but he could show her what it was like to be kissed like you were the only thing that mattered. Because in that moment she was.

Zach traced the seam of her lips with his tongue and groaned when she opened immediately for him. His fingers dove for her hair, angling her head the way he wanted it. She gave him a needy whimper, one that had him hardening beneath the fly of his jeans. He only intended to kiss her, but if she kept making noises like that, he wasn’t going to be responsible for what he did.

Gianna’s hands eased up his chest, toying with him. Her delicate touch was in direct contrast to the hard way he kissed her. Maybe she was giving him a signal, telling him to slow it down.

She pinched his nipple. Hard. He liked that signal.

His tongue glided alongside hers, getting to know her. She tasted like his wine and his food. He wanted her to taste like him. He groaned at the thought of his come on her tongue.

Jesus, he was like a teenager.

Introducing Opposites Attract

The word Aloha is so fitting today. It’s a Hawaiian word that means both ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ and really suits this post.

I always have trouble saying goodbye. Walking away from something I love is nearly impossible for me. This series has meant as much to me as it has to so many of you. The emails and reviews have lifted me up and shown me that so many of you were looking for the same thing I was.

A series about overweight women who just wanted to find love.

To be able to bring these women to life and help them find love has inspired me so much and given me so much hope. I know it’s done the same for many of you, and I thank you for sharing your stories with me.

I know these amazing thirteen women, and the amazing men they love, will be in future books. Next week I’ll give you a first peek at the brand new spin-off series, Opposites Attract. Sawyer will get his happily ever after and make some new friends for us to fall in love with. And I’m toying with the idea of following Laura and seeing her fall in love.

And some of the Big & Beautiful characters will make appearances in the spin-off series.

Ample & AlluringAs hard as it is to say goodbye, I know they’ll always be there. Like old friends you can drop in on and know you can pick up right where you left off. It’ll be fun to watch where they go in the future. And maybe catch a few new weddings and babies along the way!

It’s hard to pick a favorite couple, but I think Peyton and Wyatt became my favorites as I wrote their story. For a long time, Carrie and Drew were my favorites, and I still think they’re up there.

I’d love to know who your favorites were, and why, if you feel like sharing in the comments below!

As I say aloha to Big & Beautiful, I’m also saying aloha to Opposites Attract! About a year ago, a reader asked me if I’d ever considered writing a story from the male point of view exclusively. It wasn’t something I ever thought about since I always feel more connected to my female characters. Especially in the Big & Beautiful series where I wrote only from the woman’s point of view so we could really feel what it was like to be her.

But the question got me thinking. You clearly loved Big & Beautiful, and I was thinking about writing a spin-off series.

As the idea sat with me, I realized how much I loved the challenge. With every new series I write, I try to do something a little different, something that will push me as an author. Writing exclusively from the male point of view was definitely going to be a challenge.

So was finding the right guy to start the series.

Since I intended it to be a spin-off from Big & Beautiful, I knew the guy had to be someone who was part of that series. I was working on Round & Ravishing, and the opportunity for a future hero presented itself in the form of Sawyer, Noah’s photographer brother.

Sawyer always wanted to move to Hawaii, and being a photographer allowed me a chance to put him right where I wanted him. Smack in the middle of the wedding world.

I might have laughed a few evil laughs at the idea.

But I couldn’t walk away from it.

A wedding series, set in Hawaii, told exclusively from the male point of view?

Yep, I’d found my new challenge.

In this brand new series, Opposites Attract, you’ll get a peek into the male mind. You’ll find out what makes them tick. What they really think about during sex. And how they truly feel about our curves.

You’ll also get a peek into their dirty minds!

The first book in the series is Order vs. Chaos. Sawyer meets his match in a feisty wedding planner. Kiana has everything just how she wants it, but Sawyer comes in and messes up her perfectly ordered world.

And she just might love it.

But she’d never tell him that.

Enjoy a sneak peek at Order vs. Chaos below, and preorder your copy now!

Excerpt from Order vs. Chaos

I heard music coming from the back of the house and followed it to a small office with a white desk front and center, two yellow chairs opposite the desk, and Kiana singing along to the music in her white captain’s chair, her head bopping and her dark hair swinging.

Damn was she cute.

I knocked on the door after a second and held up the bag of food. She beckoned me in and turned the music off.

“What do I owe you?” she asked, reaching into a lower desk drawer.

I shook my head. “Consider it a peace offering. Maybe you’ll give me a little bit of a chance if I don’t let you get cranky today.”

She looked like she was considering my words, but wasn’t happy about them. She finally nodded, just once, and gestured for me to sit in one of the guest chairs.

She dug into the bag and smiled when she opened her burger. She took a big bite, groaning and closing her eyes.

It was impossible not to think about sex when I was around her. The woman was a walking, talking, groaning sex dream.

And she was off limits because she was my boss.

Coming December 26

Ample & Alluring, reviews

Ample & AlluringAll I can say is thank you. Maybe wow, also. Holy shit, you guys! The reviews on Ample & Alluring are so amazing! Thank you for sticking with me through this series. It’s been so much fun to write, but we’ll talk about that more next week!

If you haven’t grabbed it yet, read this review from Stephanie. Maybe she can convince you to check it out!

The last of its series, yet did not disappoint. Peyton and Wyatt have jobs that are high demanding. Mayor Wyatt though extremely busy, makes time for the Christmas holiday. Dr. Peyton never saw the joy of Christmas. Baffled by Peyton feelings of Christmas, Wyatt is on a mission to get Peyton to fall in love with Christmas. What they thought was a full proof plan, turns into something else completely. These two together have me laughing and crying in happiness. It’s hard to find romance that tugs at your heart strings and gives you butterflies in your stomach. Mary E. Thompson has done it again and you won’t be dissappinted when reading this book. This last book was bitter sweet. I loved this series and I am sad to see it ending. But Mary E. Thompson has a spin off to this series coming soon. I can’t wait!!!

Are you ready to read it? Go grab your copy now!
