Teaser from LUKE

Hello, lovelies! 

I just wanted to drop by and sneak in this little teaser from LUKE :) I'm finally making some awesome progress with the story (hip-hip-hooray!) so keep your eye out for more little teasers, snippets, and excerpts in the near future. I can't wait to get this story in your hands!

And now, for the teaser ...


“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dreamt of this face.” 

Blue eyes, full of awareness and intrigue, met hers as she stroked her fingertips along his smooth jaw. Her skin prickled as his warm breath fanned across her wrist. 

“And these hands…” 

Lifting his palm from his abs, she slowly brought it to her mouth and pressed a soft kiss against his calloused skin.

“The things these hands have done…”






Hope you enjoyed it ;)

xoxo,
Kimberly

Cover Reveal: ONE LAST TIME by Corinne Michaels!

I am beyond excited today to share with you this beautiful cover from one of my favorite authors!

One Last Time by Corinne Michaels 

Release Date: February 26th, 2018 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

OLT_FrontCover.jpg

I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.

First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.

That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.

I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.

But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?
What I wouldn’t give for just one last time . . .

Snazzy New Covers!

Good morning, beautiful people! I’m going to jump right into this post because I am just so excited to share with you these GORGEOUS new covers for my MCKADES OF TEXAS series J

 
Do you love them as much as I do?! I had been debating on updating them for quite some time now, but held off because—really?—there wasn’t anything necessarily wrong with the old ones. But I just couldn’t help feeling like the covers weren’t portraying the story inside (plus I’ve gotten better at Photoshop, lol). I love having each couple on their book and the little elements I pulled from their stories to create the new covers (Andi’s beat up truck on Zane’s cover, and Chase’s inherited house on Norah’s cover … horses on Luke’s cover … I’ll share that one when I’m closer to the end of his book J ). These new beauties will go live on bookseller's sites this week.

That’s all for now! I hope y’all have a great day and a great week!

xoxo,

Kimberly

Same Great Story ... Just A New Look :)

My very first book turned 6 this year! Hard to believe it's been that many years already, but it's been a very exciting ride. This book will always hold a special place in my heart because it's what got me here (and it was my very first best seller!). So to honor this lovely story, I decided to spiff it up a bit. The NEW cover represents the original cover (click here if you want to see that one) and I also updated the blurb (I've grown so much as an author and I just felt that the original blurb wasn't doing the story any justice).

I hope you love it as much as I do! 


xoxo,

WHEN THE HEART FALLS

WTHF 2017Misty Prescott had the perfect life—emphasis on the “had”. Cookie-cutter house? Gone. Gated neighborhood with quiet streets? Gone. Cheating jerk of a husband? Glad to be gone. With nowhere else to go, she returns to her hometown and back to her parents’ ranch. Living in her old room again was never part of her plan, but then again, neither was falling for her childhood friend’s rugged charm faster than the ink could dry on her divorce papers. 
When tragedy brings Dylan McCoy back home, the last person he expected to see was the beautiful woman who claimed his heart over a decade ago. Not taking the chance with Misty when he had one was always something he regretted, but now that she's back—and single—Dylan's determined to be a part of that life she's trying to put back together.
But secrets go deep in the heart of Texas, and soon there's more than just sparks flying. When Dylan and Misty find themselves targets of one horrific event after another, suddenly, they must fight the obstacles threatening to tear them apart—and survive the danger that threatens their lives.

Bad Blogger/Bad Writer

I am fully embracing this title because it is 100% TRUE! I am terrible at this blogging thing. I’m terrible at all things social media. Do I mean to be? Nope. Do I like engaging with readers on the internet? Absolutely! So let’s catch-up!

I’m sure those of you who read my books are wondering what the heck is taking me so long with getting Luke’s book completed. That’s been the most popular email I receive, and everyone gets the same reply, “I’m working on it, I swear.” And it’s true. I am working on it. But here’s the thing … writing is not my full time job. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … I wish it was, but sadly it is not. My life goes Family & Friends > Home > Work > Writing. I have a husband, two kids (that are growing up way to fast), and two beloved pups that I soak up as much time as I can with because, cliché as it is, life is too short. Writing was a lot easier seven years ago when life wasn’t so busy. When I wrote WHEN THE HEART FALLS I banged that out in a month. A month! Granted, it’s not my finest work, but it opened the door for me … and I do love Dylan and Misty J My family grew after that and writing took the back seat. I love writing, I really do, but I love my family more so they will always win. But I’m drifting here, so let’s get back to Luke.

Luke’s book is currently around 30k words (I’m aiming for 80k-90k). This book has been extremely difficult for me because it’s Luke. He’s been dodging relationships for the past two books and, gosh darn it, he’s still dodging them. I swear I this is pretty much exactly how I’ve felt writing this book so far because I've been so focused on thinking about what readers may want instead of listening to my character's and letting them run the story …
Image result for now kiss meme 

I don’t like my stories feeling forced or rushed, and that’s how I’ve felt throughout the process of writing Luke’s book. This will be the third book in my MCKADES OF TEXAS series, and since Luke has made his appearances in the other two books I feel like readers have big expectations for his happily ever after. I honestly feel like he’s been a reader favorite, and as much as I love that (because he’s one of my favs too) it scares me to death because I feel this immense pressure to make his story so amazingly fantastic that I’m over analyzing every little detail instead of just writing the damn thing. But I am writing the damn thing. I just need to work on my time management and overcome this fear of disappointment. Not trying to be a downer here, just trying to keep it real. I will complete his story. It’s a good one (at least I think so) and I really hope that you all will enjoy it once I finally get it done.

I just want to say, thanks for sticking with me!



I’ll check in again soon!

XOXO,

Kim
