New Release! (Plus...an update on Luke)

Hello everyone!

I hope you all are having an amazing summer and getting to enjoy every single bit of it! This summer has been crazy for me, but we've had some fun times. This past weekend we went to a local Wild West theme park/water park with my best friend and her little family, and we had a blast! I have some pictures of us getting into trouble, so I'll be sure to post those on my Facebook page soon :)

Before I get into my super exciting news, I want to give you guys an update on Luke. His story is coming along, but slowly. I'm stuck at one part and I can't quite figure out where I'm going. Don't worry though, I'm getting past it but it's just taking me some time to work it all out. I know it's been forever and you guys are patiently waiting, and I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am for your patience. I just wanted to reassure you that I have not given up on him and that I will complete his story as soon as I can.

Even though I've hit a rough point writing his story, I haven't completely given up on writing all together. This little snag gave me time to revisit a story I had started a long time ago and bring it to completion. And I am so tickled with the results!

Here it is, folks! My new book :)

WHAT'S LEFT OF ME


Letting go of the past is never easy…
 
Jenna Olsen has spent the last four years trying to move on from the heartache that tore her world apart, but when Cole Sullivan suddenly shows up back in town all of those feelings come flooding back…and even some new ones she didn’t know were possible.

Leaving town all those years ago was necessary, but now that Cole finally has a handle on his life he decides to return home to his family, friends, and the woman he just can’t forget.

Coming back home though comes with its costs, and Cole ultimately has to decide…will he be able to fight his inner demons to keep Jenna in his life, or will the chance of hurting her again be too much to risk?

***

I am beyond excited about this novella (yes, it's a short one...but a good one). And it's something completely new for me because 1) It's written in first person point of view, and 2) It's not a western. This was so much fun to write and I honestly look forward to doing more of them in the future.

I have a release date set for October 4th and I'll be doing a cover reveal within the next two weeks...so keep an eye out for that :) I'll also post some snippets here soon so you can get a little glimpse of Jenna and Cole :)

That's all I have for now. I just want to thank you all again for being so great and sticking with me all these years! Have a great day and I'll talk to y'all soon!

xoxo,
Kim

Forever: Forever Yours


Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility. 

Those are just a few advantages of Internet “dating.” Even better, as far as Hannah Miller is concerned, is the fact that she can shed all inhibitions without worrying about what he thinks of her figure or her face. “He” is bikerboy357, the man who knows what Hannah likes, and wants her—every night—as much as she wants him. When he asks to meet, Hannah hesitates. But the temptation is too strong. And after one look into his sultry green eyes, there’s no turning back.

Cade MacKenzie’s never met a woman who’s wasn’t blinded by his billion-dollar net worth, but “H” knows neither his face nor his name. Her words are so smart, sweet, and scorchingly sexy that Cade’s willing to gamble she’ll be just as amazing in person. And she is. But even as every delicious encounter makes Cade want Hannah more, what he wants most is her trust.

It’s something all his money can’t buy. And now, Cade will do anything to earn it.

Cover Reveal! BROKEN BEAT by April Brookshire



BROKEN BEAT
Broken Beat #1
April Brookshire
Releasing Jan 27th, 2016


You’ve heard the story before. A young woman moves to the big city, catches the eye of a rich and powerful man, and they live happily ever after.

Unless they don’t.

Vanessa has learned to live without her happily ever after.  In fact, she no longer needs or wants it. Her heart may have been shattered by the loss of true love, but it’s made her a stronger person. Her fairytale dreams faded, making way for more practical aspirations.

Keenan made a mistake when he brutally discarded Vanessa from his life. Ever since, he’s been in a hell of his own making. The life he’s led for the past several years isn’t one to be proud of and he doesn’t deserve to win Vanessa’s heart once again.

Not that he’ll let anything stop him.





“Keenan wants to see you,” Darius said.

My hand tightened around the glass, at the same time it began to shake. Adding my other hand into the mix, I gripped it until the shaking lessened. “You’re not serious.”

Staring at where some of the water had sloshed out onto my hand, I tried to ignore the rising panic.

“He’s found out the truth,” Darius explained.

My eyes rose to meet is all-too-serious ones. “How?” The word left my numb lips barely above a whisper.

His head dropped to look down at his shoes, but I could still see his hesitant expression from where I sat several yards away. He rubbed a hand through his thick hair. “He asked me to leave any explanations to him.”

My dread morphed into irritation. “That sounds like him. Always needing to have the final word.”

The strain left his features at my comment. “So, what do you want me to tell him?”

I stood, setting my glass down on the coffee table. The view of Manhattan outside became larger as I walked to the large penthouse windows. I stared down below at the tiny people walking on sidewalks and the toy cars moving down the street. Inside here, it seemed as if everything had come to a standstill.

It was impossible to pinpoint any one feeling about the possibility of seeing Keenan again. A combination of anxiety, sadness and defiance mingled with something I refused to identify as anticipation.

I imagined an awkward conversation between Keenan and myself. Rehashing our history wasn’t an event I’d enjoy. So he finally knew the truth and in his arrogance had decided it was time for closure. 

He’d always made all the decisions.

Well, this time I’d be the one deciding the outcome. Seeing Keenan would benefit me in no way. It had taken time, but I’d moved on from the heartbreak of our disastrous ending. All evidence proved Keenan had also moved on. Any conversation between us would come too late.

Not turning from the view, I told Darius, “Tell him it was another lifetime.”

Where she'll be safe from the darkness that haunts him.

Except there's nothing safe about being with Ella, and the more she gives, the harder it is to let her go. If he stays, he risks everything, but how can he walk away from the only woman he's ever needed?
