Frostbitten Hearts - A Bonded By Blood Novella

For those of you who have been waiting for the next BBB story, this is a little tie-me-over until my new release (to be announced VERY soon), Book 5 in the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles. Here's the blurb for the novella included in this boxed set:
Frostbitten-Hearts-bundle-coverHer ability to wield fire didn’t give Aideen the power to make Jack stay…
Jack was Aideen’s very breath. As a cusper Elemental, he was the air that fed her fire and the waters that cooled her soul. Born and bred in captivity by vampires for their magic, they sought shelter and love in each other’s arms. But when Jack’s family escapes the “nursery”, Aideen is ripped from her young lover’s arms. Her family refuses to risk the wrath of their captors, and she is forced to stay behind. Though Jack vows to return and free her, his promise is not easily kept. He and his grove liberate several nurseries in retaliation and, still, she cannot be found.

Ten years later, Aideen unexpectedly stumbles into the grove’s compound and back into Jack’s arms with news they have a child…and she is the bait for a trap. Time is of the essence. If they don’t return by sunset, their son will fall victim to the vampires.

Jack must return to the prison he risked his life to escape, but he will do anything to save his son and he is not about to lose the only woman who has possessed his soul and can melt his frozen heart.

Author Notes

This story takes place about 25 years after the end of Midnight Eclipse, Book 4 of my BBB series. For those of you who read Book 4 - remember little baby Jack, the Cusper Elemental? Well, he's all grown up now (Yup! That's him on the cover! RAWR!) and he's learned to use his air and water abilities to wield ICE! I'm really excited about this tale of witches and vampires and fiery love that will melt Jack's heart!

R.S. Grey - Chasing Spring - Cover Reveal



Title: Chasing Spring


Author: R.S. Grey


Release Date: Feb 1, 2016


Find on Goodreads







I thought I’d left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn’t belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn’t listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.



I didn’t ask for a hero. I don’t want to be saved.



To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin’ out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I’d assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.



I didn’t want to be her hero. Some girls don’t need to be saved.









I am a lover of books, chocolate, reality TV, black labs, and cold weather. Seriously, if I had it my way, I would be curled up on the couch with all of those things... everyday.



I live in Texas where I spend my free time writing and reading. My favorite authors include Mindy Kaling & Jonathan Safran Foer. I'm a comedy geek and love all things "funny". Women like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Mindy Kaling are definitely the biggest inspirations for my writing, though I think my work tends to skew a bit smuttier than theirs.







Hilaria Alexander - F U Cancer - Cover Reveal



Title: F U Cancer


Author: Hilaria Alexander


Release Date: Dec 29, 2015

Lucy has always been a good girl. The most hardcore thing she's done in her life was falling for a divorced man ten years her senior.



But he was the love of her life and she married him. When her Peter Pan of a husband decided to divorce her, she thought it was her chance to start anew. That was until she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Besides looking like Britney circa 2007, she is taking it well, real well. You might see her walk around the hospital during chemo sessions with bright colored wigs and outrageous t-shirts that seem to shock the most conservative employees. One of them reads F U CANCER.







I found him leaning against my car in the parking lot.



I got a Sixteen Candles flashback. He looked just as cool as Jake Ryan. The only difference was that he was leaning against my car, not his.



Oh, to be sixteen again. And make the same mistakes over and over. I wanted to get in the car with him and make out until I couldn't feel my lips anymore. I instinctively touched my lips and smiled to myself.


I met his eyes and smiled, but he gave me a serious, dark look.



Uh-oh. This wasn't going to be good. The butterflies in my stomach would be dead and gone pretty soon.



I let out a breath, mentally preparing to his apology.



It was a mistake, we shouldn't have...I shouldn't have started it. Ugh.



He looked nervous, and so was I. This was going to be a mess.



Then, suddenly, I knew how to break the tension.



“If you're hitting me up in this parking lot to score more crack, I'm sorry to say you're on the wrong track,” I told him, smiling, as I approached the car.



“What?” He looked confused as if the thought hadn’t even crossed his mind. Huh.



“Come on, you already went through your whole bag of candy or most of it, and you want to know if I can get you some more.”






“Yes, more. You want more Bonkers, right? I should have known better. I'm basically feeding an addict now. Shame on me,” I teased.



“I didn't want to ask for more candy,” he laughed.



“Is this about the other night?” I asked him, unable to hide the frown on my face.



“Yes,” he replied. He just stared at me but added nothing else.



“I know what you're going to say,” I told him. 



“You do?” he asked and gave me a suspicious look.



“Yes. It's okay, really. You don’t have to say anything.”



“What do you think I'm going to say?”



“You’re going to say you think it was a mistake…we shouldn't have done it, yada yada yada,” I said gesturing. He cracked a smile. “You’re going to say it was just a spur of the moment, which it was. It was a great spur of the moment.”



He nodded in agreement.



“It was a great spur of the moment!” He flashed a charming smile.



“It was, wasn’t it?” I leaned against the car next to him, feeling a little more relaxed. He didn’t seem too upset about the kiss, after all. I felt suddenly lighter as if a weight had been lifted from my shoulders.


“Yes, it was a spur of the moment. But it wasn't a mistake,” he said. He stuffed his hands in the pockets of his jeans and gave me a look that made my stomach flip, and my heart took off, happily drumming away.



Now I was just dying to hear the rest, but he just kept staring at me. 



“It wasn't?” I asked and he just shook his head slightly, failing to contain a smug smile.



“The reason why I ran out the other night,” he started, “well part of it has to with the fact that I'm a doctor and you're a patient here. I go back and forth thinking is not very professional of me to engage with you–”



I started laughing. I couldn't help it. 






“It sounds like you're the teacher and I'm the underage school girl,” I laughed.



He laughed with me, and I loved the way his eyes brightened when he did.



“I don't think we are breaking any rules. Technically. Well, I’m not completely sure, but it wouldn’t seem like it.” I gave him a flirty grin.



He placed an arm on top of the car and he turned around, leaning toward me. He was dangerously close, and I had to remind myself to keep my horny hormones in check.



“Well, when I got home I regretted leaving, but another reason why I did it is because I thought we were rushing it. Actually, let me rephrase that: I was the one rushing things–”



“You left because you thought we were going to fast?”



“Well…yes. I mean I might have gone a little too far that night. It doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy every second of it, but I felt like I was the one pouncing you.”



I burst out laughing because he sounded ridiculous. Did he think I regretted him coming after me in the pool? Quite the contrary. He stopped talking, and I saw his eyes fixated on my mouth. A devilish grin spread across his face. My laughter subsided, and my breath hitched. The way he was looking at me made me feel like I hadn’t felt in a while.



He looked at me as if I was desirable. I hadn’t been desired in a long time. I could have understood if he had been attracted to me under normal circumstances, but I was not the same Lucy anymore. Therefore, I had no idea how could he possibly be attracted to me.



“I like you, Lucy. I want to go out with you. We'd probably better keep it on the down low, but I want to see you. Away from here.” He looked around in the parking lot, but we were alone. He then looked at me as if waiting for an answer, but I was still processing his words.



“What? You’re crazy,” I told him. There was both shock and thrill in the tone of my voice.  I was perplexed and flattered.



“Am I? Why? You’re still single, right?” It sounded like he was mocking me. Ha ha. I frowned and narrowed my eyes at him. I didn’t understand what game he was playing. Was he really asking me out?



This was crazy. Bananas. Completely idiotic.



“Why? For one, I’m sick.”



“I’m around sick people all the time,” he said, the corner of his lips twitching up.



“I’m toxic. Literally.”



“Nahhhh. You’re not that bad. I don’t think your toxicity levels can get in the way of dating.”



I couldn’t believe it. I thought he was just going to apologize for not calling me. I never thought he’d say he wants to see me. Me. Did he have any idea of what he was asking? He needed a good dose of reality.



Time to lay down the ugly truth.



“You want to date me, huh? Some days I can barely hold myself up together. I have no hair left save for my eyebrows and eyelashes and when I look at my reflection, I feel like I’m staring at an alien. I have an ugly looking breast that reminds me every second of my life what’s wrong with me. I’m at the lowest I’ve ever been. And you want to date me?”



My words left him completely unfazed. He still wore a silly smile on his face. I had just given him a half dozen reasons why he should leave me alone and he didn’t seem worried in the slightest.



“Don’t you realize I’m probably the most qualified person? I’m indirectly a pro at all the things you just listed. No one can understand it better than me because I deal with it every day.” The tone of his voice was cheerful, but then a thought clouded his eyes. “Well, I guess the only person who could be more qualified than me would be a cancer patient or a cancer survivor because they would really know what it means to have experienced what you’re going through. But I’m a close second.”



He sounded almost cocky. This was a side of him I had never seen before. I knew I should have been turned off by it, but I instead I was intrigued by this super confident version of Dr. F. I hated to admit it.



“I don’t think–”



“How about Friday?” he asked.



“I can’t.”



“You can’t or you’re making up some kind of excuse in that pretty alien head of yours?”



I broke into a smile. “No, I really have plans. Family dinner.”

Will her trip and the Landrys only become fond memories, or will Dani find her way back to them and her beloved south?



In their debut novel, Jiffy Kate bring you a story of love, adventure, and finding a place to call home.










When a picture of the pond pops up on the screen, my breath hitches in my chest. With the moon beaming down and reflecting off the glass-like water, it’s more than beautiful. It’s tranquil, peaceful, but most of all, it reminds me of her. I can almost see us there, our feet hanging off the side, our shoulders grazing every once in a while. She looked so gorgeous in the moonlight. I wish I had a picture of that, but this is a close second.



“That looks like something straight out of a magazine,” I whisper before I realize what I’m saying.



“Hopefully, it will be.” She laughs.



“How much for a print of that?” I ask.



“Really? You’d want—”



“Yes,” I cut her off, “I’d love to have one of your pictures.”



“Well, it’s yours. I’ll order the prints once I’m back in New York and have them sent directly to you.”



“Let me pay.”



“No, it’s my pleasure. Really.”



“Give me your phone,” I instruct, and she willingly hands it over. I put my phone number in as a new contact and shoot myself a text before handing it back. “I have your number now, so I’ll text you my address.”



“Okay,” she says, smiling.



“Okay.” For the hundredth time today, I find myself staring at her lips for longer than necessary, wanting to bend down and kiss the shit out of her. She swallows hard and I abruptly break my gaze. Turning around, I leave in search of something to do before I get myself in trouble.









First things first, we're the realest.



Oh, wait. Iggy already used that one.



Well, let's see...



What some people don't know is there are two of us and we're both Jennifers. How lucky are we? The most common name from the 70's! Our parents were so original.



We found each other through Twilight and tornadoes. Sounds like a crazy combination, but it's true. We were roaming around in the same groups of people on social media, but we hadn't really became friends. But that all changed on a stormy Oklahoma night when we noticed that we were both experiencing the same tornado warnings.



We met a week later for lunch and the rest is history. We already knew we had the whole Twilight thing in common, but what we learned that day is that we both loved music and traveling. Together, we've been everywhere. Well, not everywhere, but a lot of places...Seattle, Forks, LA, New York, Chicago, Philly, Nashville, and New Orleans, where our hearts reside.



About six months after we met, we also realized we both had a passion for writing. When we started outlining our first story, we thought that would be it. One story and done. So, we dumped everything we loved into those 100,000 words. If you're familiar with the term "crack fic", that was kind of what it was for us. We had fun with it and let ourselves live on those pages.



But it was like Lays potato chips.



We couldn't write just one.



So, twenty stories later, here we are--publishing our first novel. And how crazy is it that we went back to the beginning.



Finding Focus was originally a Twilight Fan Fic titled Southern Comfort.
