I’m in the writer’s cave (and I’m behind AF) on writing my new spicy, standalone novel called the Hate Date!

The Hate DateI’ve got all of the chapters outlined and am getting to know my characters a little better. I’m not going to give out any spoilers just yet, but our FMC is someone you’ve met before!

While this is a fully unique standalone, there may be a little cameo from one or two…or maybe even three of your favorite LTZ characters.

To get you excited about this release, here are a few cool facts:

Regina Wamba, who created all of my covers for LTZ, is working on the cover art right now – and it will be my first DISCREET cover!

The tropes in this book are : Billionaire, Age-Gap, Enemies to Lovers, Forced Proximity.

I’m featuring more ripped-from-the -headlines plot lines. Scandoval anyone???

Enrico and his beautiful wife Jasmine are coming in for the weekend, so if you are unable to attend you might see us sightseeing on Sunday!

I met Sierra Hill last year at Readers Writers Seattle – and she’s one of my favorite authors ever! I love to recommend books I love – and this week it’s Falling for the Fake Boyfriend, which is the first book in Sierra’s Clearview Falls University Book. Here is a description:

One football player.
Two simple rules.
Three fake dates.
Zero chance of falling for the other.

AUTHOR SPOTLIGHTEmmett Hudson is just trying to play college football at Clearview Falls University while keeping all the balls from spinning his life apart. He thought he had everything under control until the coach threatened to bench him if he didn’t get his grades up with the help of a tutor.

Lucy Parker isn’t into football players, except the one she’s crushed on since high school. But he’s the star quarterback and doesn’t even know she exists.

The answer to this problem comes when a deal is struck with her new tutoring assignment, aka: Emmett. He promises a way to get his teammate’s attention if Lucy commits to being his fake girlfriend for three dates.

Three. Seems easy enough. Right?
But even with safeguards in place, their fake relationship soon begins to feel more real than either Lucy or Emmett expects.

And with their hearts on the line, it could turn this winning strategy into a losing proposition.

Get it here.

Happy reading!
