Hello romance readers!
This past weekend I attended the Romance Slam Jam Conference in New Orleans. I had an awesome time meeting authors and readers that I’ve met on Twitter or Facebook but not in person. One of my favorite moments of the conference was my book club meeting with Sistas Thoughts from Coast to Coast book club. We discussed the third book in the Arrington Family Series, Only One for Me as well as the prequel Simply Amazing. I learned a lot of about my characters that I didn’t even realize. One person mentioned that Cannon Arrington was self-absorbed in Simply Amazing. I just thought he was extremely busy with medical school and extracurricular/community activities. However, people interpret things differently, and I really had a wonderful time discussing the book with the ladies as well as learning about my characters all over again. Plus, it was my birthday and it was definitely a fun way to spend it!
Also, I know there were readers who truly wanted to attend the conference but weren’t able. I’m going to give away my conference bag including all of the books and goodies. Plus, I’m throwing in an autographed copy of my upcoming Harlequin Kimani Romance book, Her Perfect Candidate which will be released on June 1st. In order to win, all you have to do is tell me which character in the Arrington Family Series is your favorite and why. Please leave it in the comment section below. The giveaway ends on Thursday, May 15th at midnight, EST. I’ll announce the winner on Friday, May 16th in the comment section as well as on Twitter and Facebook. Good luck!
Thank you so much to everyone who has purchased a copy of Prescription for Desire. Its doing quite well on the Amazon charts and is currently in the top ten on the African-American and Multicultural lists! Would love to see it in the top five so spread the word for me that its definitely out. I’ve enjoyed reading the reviews, emails and Facebook messages from readers who loved Raven and Armand’s love story!
Since the death of her husband three years ago, Dr. Raven Arrington has found herself in the same mundane routine. Needing a change of scenery, she escapes to a little town outside of Buenos Aries to temporarily work at a medical facility. Raven didn’t realize what prescription for medicine she needed until she meets Chief of Staff, Dr. Armand Phillips. With just the right dose of desire, the gray-eyed, sinfully suave doctor awakens a part of her she’d suppressed.
Armand knows having a fling with a co-worker is a prescription for trouble, but the older, sophisticated doctor is like no other woman he’s met. He’s used to no responsibilities outside of his career and loves his freedom to travel wherever needed. However, Armand is willing to sacrifice it all in order to make Raven his—despite her reservations—and to give her what she wants more than anything.
Prescription for Desire is the fourth book in the Arrington Family Series.
I’m currently doing a giveaway with Goodreads. Five readers will win an autographed copy of Her Perfect Candidate. It ends on Friday, May 16th so be sure to stop by Goodreads and enter. Here’s the link. Book Giveaway for Her Perfect Candidate.
Co-owner of an up-and-coming interior-decorating firm, Megan Chase loves being a single woman on the fast track to success. But everything changes when a flat tire brings Georgia senator Steven Monroe into her life. The sinfully sexy politician needs the right woman to clean up his image. And with Megan’s fine eye for detail, she just may be the woman for the job.
Steven’s reputation as a player could cost him his chance at a U.S. senate seat. But when the cameras catch him and Megan in a kiss that’s all too real, it’s not only his future candidacy in jeopardy. As the lines between politics and desire begin to blur, how much will he risk to transform their passionate pretense into a landslide for love?
Her Perfect Candidate is the first book in the Chasing Love Series and is currently on pre order.
I hope everyone has a great week! I’ll be in the writing/editing cave working on the second book in the Chasing Love Series.
