Happy September! Here's What Happening This Fall...

Is summer really coming to an end already?! It is, I'm afraid. But I've got some fun things set for this fall and winter that I am really looking forward to. Keep reading to hear all about it!

I am kicking off this month by celebrating Tule Publishing's 10-year anniversary! πŸŽ‰My first Tule novel, LOVE AT THE ICICLE CAFE, was released in December 2020. Since then I've written CHRISTMAS IN FULL BLOOM, (which, like LATIC, is a sweet holiday second chance romance) and the FEARLESS FAIRYTALE series (Sometimes happily ever after arrives on its own magical schedule...).

In honor of Tule's anniversary, all books will be 50% off from September 5-15. CLICK HERE for more deets on my novels as well as several excerpts, and be sure to use code TULE10 at checkout!

I recently participated in Lucy Edens' Romance for Maui auction in support of those who were affected by the wildfires in Lahaina. Together, my fellow romance authors and I raised over $150,000! πŸŽ‰ My wonderful winner, Denise Stout, bid on my Harlequin Intrigue/Tule Publishing book bundle and swag pack, and snapped this lovely photo. Thank you again for supporting the cause, Denise! πŸ’–

The countdown to my book birthday is on! We are only two months away from the release of HOMICIDE AT VINCENT VINEYARD. Book 3 in my West Coast Crime Story series is available for preorder, and I'll be dropping tidbits about it on social media from now through publication day. So be sure to follow me here
In case you missed it, here's the blurb:

A case from the past could change their future...

New chief of police Jake Love is just settling in when information on a cold case pops up. Bringing closure to the murder at Vincent Vineyard is his top priority. And having his girlfriend, Ella Bowman, at his side helping with the investigation should have drawn them even closer. But when Ella’s connection to the powerful family leads to threats, the truth’s revelation might destroy them both. 

My Harlequin Medical Romance has an official release date and blurb! ER DOC'S LAS VEGAS REUNION is set to hit shelves on January 1, 2024, and I am so excited for readers to check out this steamy, emotional second chance romance. Here's what Harlequin has to say about the book:

Will she roll the dice on a second chance when she’s reunited with the man from her past? Find out in Denise N. Wheatley’s Las Vegas–set debut for Harlequin Medical Romance!

Will Her Gamble Pay Off?

The last place straitlaced Dr. Eva Gordon expects to call home is Las Vegas. But when her famous fiancΓ© abruptly ends their engagement, Eva’s desperate to escape her small town and its gossipmongers. Yet while Fremont General provides a clean slate, Dr. Clark Malone makes her history impossible to forget… Because Eva’s new colleague was once her best friendbefore an evening of passion changed everything. Could her fresh start lead to their second chance?

Most of you know that I love a fun throwback post. Here's my most recent that I've shared across social media. This photo was taken when I was about 10-years old at Seaway Bank and Trust, which was a black-owned institution located on the south side of Chicago. The bank opened its doors in January of 1965, and my mother worked there for years. On this day, a professional photographer was on site snapping employee family photos. πŸ’– I remember my mom being so irritated because instead of wearing the red turtleneck she'd picked out for me, I showed up in this white blouse lol. It does add a nice pop of brightness though, doesn't it?? But anyway, speaking of my mother...

She and I recently hosted a summer soiree for my aunts (her sisters). Glenda (far left) was in town from New Jersey, and we had a ball eating, drinking, and catching up before watching The Blackening. My mom is in the middle, and my other aunt, Nett, is to my right. Oh, and that's my sister, Rhonda, lurking in the background lol. Hopefully we'll all get together again soon to celebrate Christmas. πŸŽ„

I am so excited for Kelly Cain's upcoming release, THE KEY TO FOREVER! The book, which readers are calling "powerful" and say "brings the fire," hits shelves on September 19th. Here's the scoop:

She doesn’t need a man, but she does want a family...

Tori Matheny comes from a family of strong women who are all close and happily single. She plans to live the same way—an occasional fling, but never settling down. What’s the need? She is, however, curious about her birth family despite her adoptive mom and aunts strongly discouraging her search. Tori’s always known she was adopted and has never been able to shake her lifelong curiosity. When she runs into a childhood friend with plenty of time on his hands, he seems like the ideal candidate to help with her search.

After a nomadic lifestyle serving for years in the Veterinarians Without Borders program, Ethan Borden is permanently home and finally ready to settle down—buy a home, marry, and have children. He’s always had a crush on Tori, so when she asks him for help, he’s hopeful it’s the beginning of so much more.

Ethan is happy to help Tori find her birth family, but when Tori learns Ethan is hiding a deep family secret, can their budding relationship survive the generational betrayals?

THE KEY TO FOREVER is Book 3 in Kelly's Secret Ties series. CLICK HERE to order your copy!

I hope to see you here again next month, when I'll be celebrating the release of Mia Heintzelman's CLUED-IN CHRISTMAS! πŸŽ„CLICK HERE to preorder this slow burning second chance romance, which is Book 3 in Mia's Love & Games series. 🎲 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by! XO
