Release Blast! MARRY ME MAD by Katy Regnery

Two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.

The Blueberry Lane Series
The Rousseaus #2
Kate Regnery
Releasing Oct 21st, 2016

Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?  Katy Regnery's Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!

For as long as Madeleine “Mad” Rousseau can remember, she’s been the “sweet” twin to her sister Jax’s “sassy.” But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides she’s had enough of being sweet. Children’s librarian during the day, she begins visiting Philly’s seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure and experience. When Cortlandt “Cort” Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad’s sister, Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.

Please enjoy the following excerpt from MARRY ME MAD:
Cort nuzzled her forehead, and she sighed in her sleep, burrowing closer, her nipples rubbing against his chest, her arms tightening around his torso. His heart swelled. Despite the other women who had shared his bed over the course of his lifetime, he couldn’t remember a single one, because none of them mattered except this one.
I’m yours, she’d said as they climaxed together in the single most earth-shattering moment of his life. And I’m yours, he thought. I always have been.
“I’m going to marry you,” he whispered, pressing his lips to her hair. “Marry me, Mad.”
“Mmm,” she murmured. “Yes.”
He froze, holding his breath as his eyes widened. My God, had she heard him?
“Mad?” he whispered, but she didn’t answer. “Baby, are you awake?”
She didn’t stir, didn’t murmur, and there was no hitch in her breathing or tightening of her muscles. Had she said “yes” in her sleep? Had her subconscious heard him and asked her lips to answer? He smiled, relaxing as he pulled her closer.
He’d take a dreamy yes.
For now.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Welcoming the Bad Boy
Hero's Welcome #3
By: Annie Rains
Released August 2, 2016

From the bestselling author of Welcome to Forever (“Full of heart and emotion!”—Lori Wilde) comes a sweet, sexy novel about breaking all the rules. In Seaside, North Carolina, the boys on the base are heroes—but that doesn’t mean they’re always well-behaved.

As a preacher’s daughter, Valerie Hunt only dates the very respectable, very boring men who meet her father’s strict standards. In private, however, she leads a double life as a romance writer of steamy stories about the least respectable sorts of men. Valerie has always kept her hottest fantasies separate from her real life, but when she nearly runs a hot-blooded biker off the road, the lines begin to blur.

Even though Valerie almost killed him, Griffin Black can’t be angry after he learns the reason for her distracted driving: an unruly puppy belonging to her ailing friend. As a member of the military police K-9 unit, Griffin insists on training the dog himself. But he soon wonders how he’s ever going to stay disciplined around the most alluring, down-to-earth, and totally unattainable woman he’s ever met. Valerie is the ultimate good girl. And Griffin is going to need all his old tricks to unleash her wild side.

Please enjoy the following excerpt from WELCOMING THE BAD BOY:
Her body slid behind his, spooning him. She wrapped her arms around his torso, clutching him tight, and he took off down the road. The rain beat against his skin, attempting to cleanse him, but there was no wiping away the dirty thoughts going through his mind. He took the long way back to his place to feel her against him longer, and to try to wrangle his desire so he wouldn’t be tempted to take her straight to bed when they arrived.
He slowed to a stop behind a stop sign and glanced over his shoulder to look at her. Her hand slid down from his waist and into the front of his jeans. Fuck. He’d heard preachers’ daughters were wild, but he’d thought it was a myth. With her hand snug against him he turned left and pressed the gas, heading home. Trooper was waiting. And he needed to get his mouth on this woman, to kiss her stupid and hope her hands continued exploring.
He pulled into his driveway and helped her off as the rain began to fall harder. She didn’t squeal and run toward his covered porch the way some women would. Instead, she stared at him as he lifted the helmet off her head. She didn’t flinch as her shirt began to stick to her in all the right places. He leaned toward her, cupping his hands around her face and leading her mouth to his. She melted against him, sealing her wet body to his. Damn. Her lips were soft, the kiss hungry, devouring him like he was the best thing she’d put in her mouth all day.
“I want you,” he said, pulling back from her mouth, but continuing to hold her. The words were meant to be a warning. “I want you so fucking much.” He half expected her to slap him. They barely knew each other. She had a wild streak and a smart mouth, but overall he thought she was the good-girl type. Not the type to give herself so easily. Even if he could’ve sworn she was ready the other night.
“Take me inside,” she said, going up on her toes and kissing him again, wrapping her hands around the back of his head, pressing her body tighter against him. “We’re getting wet out here.”
The rain. She was talking about the rain. A nice guy would escort her inside and help her get dried off. Which was exactly what he intended to do. But he didn’t plan on stopping there.

I don't know about y'all but I love that short excerpt! Very steamy ;)

Celebrating Great Writing #PoweredByIndie

Powered By Indie

This month Amazon is celebrating great writing published via Kindle Direct Publishing, Create Space and Audiobook Creation Exchange. I am truly honored to be a part of this celebration and to be included with authors that I look up to and admire.

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been at this now for over six years, and I still feel just as clueless as I did when I first started this journey :) The world of writing and publishing is constantly changing, and just when I think I’ve finally got a grasp on it all something new comes along to shake it up. But that’s a good thing because change helps us grow.

With the release of my new novella, What’s Left of Me, I’m reminded of how my career as a romance author began. Funny enough, even though this is the fourth book I’ve published, it feels an awful lot like that very first book (for real, I’m having a serious case of déjà vu). I’ve been on a publishing hiatus for about two years, so I almost feel like a brand new author stepping out into the writing world again. There have been some ups and downs with getting this novella into my readers’ hands, and there were times when I couldn’t help but think “Gosh, wouldn’t it be nice to just write a story and then have a trustworthy team handle the rest?” But even though that thought has passed through my mind, I wouldn’t change the way I do things.

I love being a self-published author.

I love being involved with my work 100% and making decisions. I love creating my book covers, promos, book trailers, my blog, and my website. I love all of the wonderful people I’ve met along the way: fellow authors, book tour companies, audiobook narrators, readers, bloggers, reviewers, etc!

Being a self-published author is a lot of work, but I’m enjoying every part of it!
