Gardening is not my forte…but I’m trying

It’s been a really long time since I’ve had a blog post. Sorry about that. Things have been busy and even though I have a lot of things I want to blog about, they are not really all that interesting. No one really wants to hear about my lousy work day. 😉 I don’t consider myself having a green thumb. It’s mostly brown. I kill things. I’m the only person I know who has been able to kill a bamboo and an aloe vera (and almost an ivy). You know, the plants that are mostly impossible to kill? Yeah, that’s me. A couple of years ago, the husband and I removed holly bushes from the front of the house. They were a litter box for the neighborhood cats and I was tired of smelling cat pee when I go to the front door. Anyway, in their place, we planted rose bushes. They’re actually doing really well! These are the knock-out roses. I transplanted a little piece of the rosebushes we have in the backyard to the front. I was pretty sure I’d killed it, but turns out I didn’t! I’ve been wanting wisteria for some time but wasn’t sure how to grow it. I couldn’t find seeds either. Then this spring, I found some at the garden center of the local home improvement store.

Mea Culpa! Release Day Faux Pas

It was brought to my attention there was an error with my upcoming release, A Little Taste of Heaven.

If you have bought it today and get the incorrect version, please email me. I will personally send you a revised copy.

Release Day: A Little Taste of Heaven

It’s here! I’m so excited to release this book! I wrote this for Harlequin’s 2015 So You Think You Can Write contest and made it into the Top 25. I hope you’ll check it out! Wedding consultant Bella Degrasso maintains her hectic, stressful business by keeping her mind focused and her emotions in check. Except for the one night she let down her guard and succumbed to a seductive stranger’s come on and scorching uninhibited sex. Their encounter comes back to haunt her when the chef for her latest power couple’s wedding turns out to be the mystery man. Even worse, the bride happens to be his step-sister. Now there’s no avoiding him or forgetting their night of searing passion. After punching his boss on national television, disgraced celebrity chef Wyatt Larabee returns home to rebuild his career at his mother’s catering business. When his step-sister’s prim and proper wedding consultant turns out to be the sex kitten he met his first night in town, he knows she’s just what he needs to forget his past mistakes. Now he wants to turn his bad boy image around in the hopes Bella will see beyond that and let him fill her need for intimacy, but when his past comes back to haunt him, it may be too much for her to handle.  Where to Buy: iBooks | Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Smashwords
