Happy December, lovely readers! I can't believe it's the last month of the year already. Where has the time gone?
The year's not over yet, but I'm starting my celebration early. Why? 'Cause 2015 has been such a success!
I don't have any final, definite numbers, but Home Ice Advantage, my book released as part of the Seduced by the Game collection, has already raised well over $500 for cancer research and patient care. And that donation amount will only continue to swell through the next 11 months as readers continue to one-click!
But 2015 isn't over yet, not even close! And I'm determined to keep writing through the holiday season. I'm hoping to have the next Dallas Comets book out in early 2016. It's entitled BREAKOUT PLAY. Let me whet your appetite and share the blurb with you:
He’s mastered the breakout play on the ice. She’s still trying to break out of her shell.
When Adam first lays eyes on Ally in the dark, country-themed bar, he immediately knows that he’s going to take innocent-looking beauty home for the night. When she resists his charms and cheesy one-liners, he becomes even more determined to win her over.
After all, Adam Harris didn’t make it onto the Dallas Comets’ roster without hearing the word “no.” No one believed he’d get drafted or play a game in the NHL, but he proved his critics all wrong. He knows that he’s got to capitalize on his scoring chances because they don’t come around very often.
Allison Forrester isn’t as naïve as Adam thinks she is. She moved to Dallas looking for a new beginning, and she doesn’t want to mess up her hard work by having a one-night fling with some wannabe hotshot hockey player—no matter how attractive he may be. However, Adam has never accepted “no” as an answer, and he plans to keep asking Ally out until she finally says “yes.”
If they can set aside their differences for a night, maybe they can both break out of their ruts—and realize they have more in common than they thought.Adam has made appearances in both "A Valuable Trade" and Home Ice Advantage. I'm so excited to tell his story next, and I hope you'll be excited to read it!
I'm going to start a new little feature on my blog posts and on my Facebook page, so you can all see what events I'll be attending or dropping by for the coming month.
