I’m going down south to visit some friends during the holidays and I’ll probably be away until Jan 2nd or 3rd (or 4th or 5th if depends on our friends lol), which means no blog posts and not a lot of online interaction until I’m back.
(How I’m going to survive without twitter and pinterest for over a week? AAHHHHH! lol)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’ll see you in 2014!

Harlequin HQN (Digital First)
New Adult Contemporary Romance
Maggie Carpenter is ready for a change— and to leave her ordinary life in South Carolina behind. But when she accepts a scholarship to the International School in London, a university attended by the privileged offspring of diplomats and world leaders, Maggie might get more than she bargained for.
When Maggie meets Hugh, a twentysomething British guy, she finds herself living the life she always wanted. Suddenly she’s riding around the city in a Ferrari, wearing borrowed designer clothes and going to the hottest clubs. The only problem? Another guy, the one she can’t seem to keep her hands off of.
Half French, half Lebanese, and ridiculously wealthy, Samir Khouri has made it clear he doesn’t do relationships. He’s the opposite of everything Maggie thought she wanted…and he’s everything she can’t resist. Torn between her dream guy and the boy haunting her dreams, Maggie has to fight for her own happy ending. In a city like London, you never know where you stand, and everything can change in the blink of an eye.
**This is a New Adult romance recommended for readers 17 and up.

Now, a happily ever after later, Chanel is living her next adventure in South Korea. An avid reader and hopeless romantic, she is happiest curled up with a book. She has a weakness for handbags, puppy cuddles, and her fighter pilot husband. Chanel writes New Adult contemporary romances and Young Adult thrillers. Her New Adult debut, I SEE LONDON, will be released by Harlequin (HQN) on February 3, 2014, followed by a sequel, LONDON FALLING, later in the year.
Like when my 1st anniversary as a published author came, I almost didn’t post anything about my birthday.
But then I thought, why not? It’s my 30th birthday. An important number, right? Odd thing is, when I was a teenager, I thought 30yo was so old lol Along my 20s, that changed and I know believe the 30s are the new 20s. At 30, people are still so young and some are just now finding love and starting a family … there’s so much to life!
Anyway, I just wanted to mark this day :)
Taking advantage of this post, please remember there’s still 2 giveaways going on:

Here’s to a great day!
Today I am excited to share the release of The Short Game, a novella by J.L. Fynn. It’s a companion novella to her debut novel The Long Game, but it’s completely stand-alone. That is, even if you haven’t read the first book, you will enjoy this one.
And even more exciting than the book’s release? All day today and tomorrow you can get it FOR FREE! Want to learn more?
Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Word Count: 21,000 words
Jimmy Boy Reilly should be out on the road like the rest of his Irish-American Gypsy clan, but instead he’s stuck at home. His little brother Shay is up north pulling a long con, something Jimmy never wanted him involved in, and now all he can do is worry and wait.
But Shay isn’t the only thing on his mind this summer. He can’t seem to shake the image of the cute store clerk they swindled a few weeks back, and it’s really starting to get to him. When he decides to return the money in an effort to get her out of his mind, that small act of redemption soon turns into a date, and maybe something more.
Jimmy Boy never had any intention of falling for the country girl, cute or not, but there’s no way he could resist the beautiful, sassy blonde. Now it’s not just the fate of his little brother he’s worried about, but his own too. Hiding the relationship from his clan is hard enough, but keeping the fact that he’s an Irish Traveler from Tracy is even harder–and might cost him more in the end.
Set concurrently to J.L. Fynn’s debut novel The Long Game, The Short Game is a novella exploring what’s happening back at the Traveler Village while Shay is up north. While it could be considered a companion novel to The Long Game, it’s a stand-alone story that can be enjoyed even without having read The Long Game.
J.L. Fynn is the public face of the writing collaboration between Katherine Ernst and Chelle Bruhn. Katherine and Chelle disagree on most everything (music, food, need for punctuality), except for what’s really important, which is why they’ve been best friends for seventeen years and writing together for three.

Love believes in second chances.
Francis Heller lives with two truths. Love hurts and beauty is only skin deep.
With midnight black hair, moss-colored eyes, and traceable curves, Fran is the picture of beauty and confidence…on the outside. But deep down she is tormented. Not just by the jagged scars that line her body, but by the horrible memories that cloud her mind and haunt her dreams. The ones that make her want to flee from herself and from the devastating pain. The ones that cause her to placate herself with sex. Anything to make her forget. But for Fran, there’s nowhere to hide from the darkness that swallows her whole.
Matt Dixon is the gorgeous brother of her best friend’s fiancée. He’s suffered losses of his own and isn’t willing to let anyone in until his unexpected encounter with Fran Heller, the girl who challenges him and causes him to take a second look, not only at her, but at his own life.
But Matt has scars of his own.
Together can they help each other discover that second chances really do exist? That love doesn’t have to hurt? Or has the damage they’ve both suffered cut too deep to ever heal?
**NA/Contemporary Romance with language and mature sexual content.**
About the Author
I am a wife, a mom, an author, and a lover of all things chocolate, well, anything sweet really. While stuffing chocolate in my face, I enjoy reading young adult and new adult novels furiously, and spending time with my husband and two adorable children who keep me on my peppermint pink painted toes. Those same children who inspire me to tell silly stories that cause hysterical giggles to tumble from their bellies.
I love to laugh and love to have a good cry, especially after reading a novel that stretches my soul, one that makes me feel, and lingers in the corner of my heart.
I’m a hopeless romantic and a happily ever after fanatic, and I love to write about LOVE.
I began writing when I was in middle school, penning anything from short stories, to poetry, and then later moved on to write children’s books. I have now endeavored into New Adult and Contemporary Romance novels and am loving every minute of it. My first novel, Love Love, was released in May, 2013.
I wasn’t going to post anything but this date is too important to pass up …
This day last year, Her Heart’s Secret Wish was released into the world, making me a published author!
Since then, I’ve released 3 novels (Destiny Gift, Soul Oath, and Breaking the Reins) and another novella (His Allure, Her Passion). I almost released a 3rd novella (Cup of Life), but I’m holding on to that one until next month.
I could spend hours here listing a bunch of people – friends really – that helped me during this year, and even before that … but I’m sure if I’ll try, I’ll forget someone and I hate when that happens. I usually mention these very important people on the Acknowledgments part of my books, though :D
I’m not doing a celebratory giveaway because I have other 3 giveaways open right now. Here are they:
E-copy of Destiny Gift and Soul Oath and an e-copy of a non-contemporary NA novel of your choosing:
E-copy of Destiny Gift and Soul Oath, paperback of Destiny Gift and Soul Oath and a $25 Nook or Kindle giftcard:
Here’s to another great year!
