Series Update

I have finished writing Aidan & Jessie’s story. I know, I know, FINALLY. Right? Here is the official title of book 4…


Release date…

Target goal is Spring 2016.  I need to be deeper into edits before I feel comfortable announcing a firm date. So please bear with me.

What you can expect….

  • A long book. No surprise there. LOL  I won’t sugar coat it. In fact, right now, it’s the longest of the series. I’m in the process of trimming parts at the moment. But there are issues which cannot be resolved in a chapter.
  • It’s primarily character-driven. There’s a background crime/detective element because of the storyline and Aidan’s occupation (can’t have a detective character without any detecting going on 🙂 ). But it is not the driving force of this story but is included to show a side of Aidan’s character. Ultimately, their story is one of healing and the book focuses on Aidan & Jessie.
  • Yes, the ending is HEA. I couldn’t make my guys suffer without giving them one. Sadly, yes, they go through a lot of stuff in this story.
  • There’s enough back story so the book can be read as a standalone.
  • There will be reappearances from prior characters (and a mention of a future one).
  • I’m sure there will be parts where you’re yelling at both Jessie and Aidan (mainly Aidan). But I also hope there are parts where you’re cheering them on.
  • This book comes with a warning label (abuse & violence). If you’re familiar with these characters, I suspect the warning label was expected.

Cover reveal, blog tour, etc….

Once I’ve got a release date, then I can set the cover reveal and tour dates. And yes, there will be prizes. 🙂

I will post the blurb once I have the release date.

Here’s a link to a prior post with more info if you care to read more…



THANK YOU & I’ll post an update once I have more info!
