THIRTEEN More Days Until Release!

Mark your calendars.

Get ready!

You only have to wait 13 more days until the release of Adore Her, More of Her (Daisy & Belmont, #3), the final book in the LOVE in the USA series.

I can’t wait for you to read this book! And I’ve already started writing my new series (more to come on that very soon 😉 .

However, I have a few questions. Out of all the couples and characters in the LOVE in the USA series, who was your favorite? Couple? and character? Inquiring minds want to know.   Also, who was your least favorite, couple and character? Leave a comment and let me/us know!

And as a bonus… Here’s the first paragraph of Adore Her, More of Her! I’ll post a full-chapter excerpt next week! So stay tuned! 

I balance on one foot and raise the other, pressing my heel against my thigh. As soon as I’m steady, I massage the sole of my foot. Yoga three times a week is paying off as far as perfecting my balance is concerned, but the bottoms of both my feet are killing me. I spent all day on them in the kitchen of Mes Fleurs Bakery today. Jeffrey and Rain—the senior bakers—and I were making special menu items for the final month of Christmas. Creating twenty-three different tasty desserts was easier in concept than in reality. From 8:00 a.m. all the way to 8:49 p.m., we whipped up croissants, éclairs, brioches, religieuses, madeleines, macarons, beignets, mille-feuilles, and a six-per-box assortment of petit fours. Baking was fun but exhausting. When I got home I was surprised to see that Belmont hadn’t arrived. He was supposed to be here five hours ago. It’s our “both away” day. At least one of us is home with Ed, our son, four days of the week, and on the day both of us are out, Aunt Susan—my stepfather Joseph’s sister—comes over to babysit. Her estate, where she grows acres of pomegranate trees, isn’t that far away.

All best!

The past, present and future merge in this final installment of the LOVE in the USA series.

It looks like we made it.

Belmont and I were committed after one intense week four years ago. We fell for each other fast but reality set in even faster. I found him entitled and overbearing without giving me room to breathe and be myself. He found me cold and unaffected, a person who couldn’t express what she needed because all I wanted was to cherish the pain of my brother’s death.Then I gave birth to our first child, and we lost her. We spiraled deeper down the rabbit hole. But two people don’t come together the way we did for nothing. Belmont and I were meant to be. So with a little help from the ones we love, we worked like hell to hold on to the things that brought us together in the first place, and worked out the issues that were pulling us apart.

We have a son now and he is magnificent. Our love for each other has ripened into a sweet, lasting happily ever after.

Until one day Belmont went missing without a trace.

I would like to say thanks so much for making it this far in the LOVE in the USA series. It’s definitely been a growing process for me. My release frequency sure needed a lot of work. I ‘mean, it just wasn’t smart to leave you hanging for so long after reading the middle books (Know Her, Love Her; Still In Love With Her and Explore Her, More of Her). In the future I’m going to be so much better at releasing books–you’ll see. I’m working on my next book series now! I’ll give you more details in the future.

Much love, <3



The Arduous Start To A New Book…

My month long break is over and I’m back to the “writing” board. The start of the book is always the hardest part. I’m writing Adore Her, More of Her (Daisy & Belmont). At first I was like, why writ e it? I know many people couldn’t rest until Daisy and Belmont had a baby. And I felt pressured into giving them one. So, um, yeah… I did that for you. But I did it in Say You Love Me! And truthfully, I didn’t see that coming. It just goes to show you that when the author is in the story, the story tells us what it wants to be.

So… what I’m going to do in Adore Her, More of Her (Daisy & Belmont, #3) will be solely for ME! I learned some things over the years. Like why Daisy made the decision she made in Find Her, Keep Her.  Also, the more I got to know the mysterious Belmont Lord, I’ve learned why he chose Daisy as well.  They way they got together in Find Her, Keep Her was all honest as far as I’m concerned. The choosing is the easy part, sustaining a relationship  is the hard part.

Lucky for Daisy, she was able to find love in herself after marrying a virtual stranger. That rarely happens in real life. And that’s why in Know Her, Love Her, I had to show the truth. They would have fragments in their relationship. But if they’re dedicated to each other,  they would do some work on THEMSELVES and hope as they get healthier personally, their relationship will follow suit. Well… Lucky for Daisy & Belmont it had. And so from Made To Love Her through Say You Love Me, you’ve seen some sides of Belmont that must be explained. Well… I’m going to so enjoy delving into them in Adore Her, More of Her. I’m also going to show Daisy’s evolution–her emotion evolution and her bravery.

However, I must start at chapter one and that’s what’s squeezing my brain right now.

GRRRRRR….. grrr…. Sigh…


This is going to be a tough two weeks but I shall get through it. That’s how long it’s going to take me to write the first chapter.

Alright. Shutting my computer down for the night.

Until next time! 🙂
