"A steamy and intriguing read, Desert Heat is exactly the kind of romantic suspense I adore." —Tracey Garvis Graves, New York Times bestselling author of On the Island and Covet




Between running from her past, working three jobs and worrying about her family, the only thing that would further complicate singer Bethany Amaya's life is falling in love. But after serendipitously attending a speed dating event by chance and meeting the intense and sexy detective Damian Santiago, that's exactly what she gets. In the blink of an eye, Bethany's caught up in a passionate affair with one of the most irresistible men she's ever met.

As their romance heats up, Damian's skills of detecting and reading body language begin to raise his suspicions. Bethany is keeping something from him. But Bethany refuses to get Damian caught up in her troubles. She feels that some things are better left unsaid. With everything suddenly working against her, the race is on to fix her life before the truth is revealed and Damian finds out it's much worse than he imagines.

I will add more links as it goes live everywhere else!!!


“Sarah,” Angel called out again a little louder, and she turned to see him at the door. “Who are you calling?”

“Valerie,” she said, wiping the tears away from her face.

“Why?”

“So she can come pick me up.”

He hurried to her, and Alex walked out of the apartment behind him. Sarah put her phone down before dialing Valerie, waiting for him but not sure what to expect. Angel’s rigid expression softened the moment he got close enough to see her better in the dark. “Why are you crying?”

“Why do you think?” she said, trying not to sound too angry, but she was only it was mostly at herself.

He took a step forward. “Why’d you come here?”

“Because I wanted to talk to you, but—”

“About what? About *him?” he asked, but he didn’t sound nearly as angry as he had earlier on the phone or when he said he didn’t want her there. He sounded scared now.

“No, about us.” She gulped back the emotion, glad that Alex had stayed behind with Romero and had given them a moment.

“What about us?” Angel asked, his eyes going a little wild. “What are you saying?”
 

* Whispers... by him Angel is not referring to Sydney. So who is making his eyes go a little wild? Find out tomorrow!  ;)   



Also I'd like to give a HUGE shout out to my editor Theresa Wegand for helping me get this all cleaned up and formatted in time to release sooner than I expected! Don't know what I'd do without her! <3 font="">

Final teaser before release of Forever Yours!

Happy Teaser Tuesday everyone!
*Throws glitter and confetti all around!*  
 
 
So this is it. This final teaser before the release THIS Friday!!
*More glitter confetti and dancing in my jammies!! 
 
 
For those of you who haven't yet read Forever Mine, 
 
 
it's still free! The links are all there on the sidebar! Go grab your copy of it today! --->
 
Now the setup for this weeks teaser. Y'all remember Sydney right? Well, after 2 years of not having seen him he's dropped by unexpectedly to visit and has some big news/revelations. You won't get to hear about the first reason for his visit here. That you'll have to wait and read about in the book. ;) But he does let her in on something else in this teaser! Happy reading!  
 
 
 
By the time she’d set up Sydney on the front room sofa and was getting ready to climb in her bed, she remembered Carina and felt bad that they’d spent the whole night discussing her issues—again. His Carina troubles and asking Sydney about them had been the last thing on her mind. She tiptoed out into the front room in case he’d already fallen asleep. The second she walked in the room he turned to her and smiled. “Can’t sleep?” he asked. “I can’t either.”

He patted the spot on the sofa adjacent to his waistline. A million years ago, or at least that how long ago it felt, she would’ve thought nothing of it and plopped right down next to him. There was no way now. She leaned against the hallway doorway instead.

“I meant to ask you,” she said, rethinking having gone out there in her sleep clothes—an oversized T-shirt and undies. Tugging at the bottom of her shirt, she continued, “So things are not so great with you and Carina?”

Sydney grimaced. “We broke up actually.”

Sarah’s brows shot up, and her heart actually ached for him. He and Carina had been together as long as she and Angel had. “Really?” She pouted, feeling even worse about not having asked earlier.” What happened?”

“Long story,” he said, sitting up with a crooked smile.
“Tell me,” she urged.

It didn’t feel fair that, as usual, their entire conversation tonight had been mostly about her and her issues. For the past several years—ever since the whole nightmare started with her mom being sent to jail and Sarah having to move out to California then dealing with the trial against her coach and every other new thing that happened to her—it was always the same thing. They’d spend the majority of their conversations discussing her dilemmas, and, like tonight, something as big as Sydney breaking up with his girlfriend of nearly three years had not even been brought up. She felt disgusted with herself.

“If I tell you, you gotta promise you’re not gonna feel bad or try to talk me out of it. My mind is made up. Okay?”

Sarah tilted her head, confused. She already felt bad for him. That was a given. This was huge, and she knew how much Sydney cared about Carina. She’d been his first everything. But trying to talk him out of it?

She nodded. “Okay . . .”

With a deep breath, he began. “She’s never been able to deal with you in my life, Lynn, even from a distance. We’d been having other issues too, but that was the biggest one. It’s why I hadn’t come around in so long. Last year, when I cancelled my trip out here last minute, it wasn’t because of my car issues. It was because, when I told her about the trip, things got hairy.”

Sarah remembered how disappointed she’d been when that happened, but she never for a second questioned his reason.

“After another huge argument we had a few weeks ago,” he continued, “she gave me an ultimatum: her or you.” He shrugged with a small smile. “Of course I chose you.”

Teaser Tuesday and release date announcement!

Happy Teaser Tuesday everyone! Ya ready to go back to ... 



Back to these two


Just a few years older? 


I am too! So without further ado, let's see what Angel and Sarah are up to.

Set up: Sarah and Angel are at his house. The Moreno's are having a birthday gathering for mama Moreno. Sarah gets a text. 



Sarah picked up her phone, hoping it wasn’t anything from Sydney but a little worried it might be. She was worried, not because of Angel, but because she’d picked up on something not being right when Sydney had called her a second time in one day after she hadn’t heard from him in days.

To her relief it wasn’t Sydney. It was a text from her mom.
Are you going to be there much longer? I have a surprise for you, and I can hardly wait for you to get here already.
That piqued Sarah’s interest instantly, and she smiled. Surprise? Her mother had never been good about keeping surprises from her for long, so it made her wonder how long she’d had this up her sleeve. She hadn’t heard anything about this until now. Sarah was turning twenty-one that year, but that was still months away.

She didn’t even realize what a big goofy smile she wore until she noticed Angel staring at her strangely. “My mom,” she said as she texted back. “She’s asking how much longer I’m gonna be. She has a surprise for me.”

The strange expression on Angel’s face was replaced with one as curious as she felt. “Surprise?”

“Yeah,” she said as she sent the text asking for a hint. “My mom’s never been good about keeping surprises from me. In fact, she stinks at it. It’s why she can’t get me anything for my birthday or Christmas until the day before because she doesn’t trust herself not to blow it early.” Sarah laughed. “Whatever this is she probably just got it today, and already she’s texting me to ask when I’ll be home.”

“I can take you now,” Angel offered. “We’re pretty much done here. Everyone’s just gonna shoot the breeze now, and I know you said you had homework you wanted to work on.”

Feeling even more curious, especially since her mom hadn’t responded to her text asking for a hint, Sarah nodded with a smile. “I can’t imagine what it is.”

Angel got up from where he was sitting and reached out his hand. “Let’s go,” he said. “I’m curious now too.”

It took her almost fifteen minutes to say goodbye to everyone, but finally they were out of there and in Angel’s car. Halfway home her mom responded to her text.
The only hint is you’re really gonna like it! That’s all. Oh and maybe don’t bring Angel in. This is something he might not be as excited about hearing as you.
There was only one thing Sarah could think of that might not excite Angel as much as it would excite her—Sydney. This had something to do with him, and it was likely what he’d called her twice for today. But why wouldn’t he just tell her? Whatever it was suddenly had her insides knotting up.



Stay tuned for the final teaser next week. Final? Yes because I'll be releasing sooner than I anticipated! Well... uploading! Remember once I upload to all the different retailers it's out of my hands. Sometimes there are delays I can't do anything about. =/ 
SO expected release date...

Upcoming book and cover reveal and giveaway!!!

First off 



Here's wishing you all a wonderful fresh start and a very exciting new year with lots of new adventures and new beginnings!  

I know this year I have a lot of exciting things in store but I'll save that for another post. Right now lets get to the announcement and cover reveal! 















I said it again and again. I wouldn't do it. I was asked so much I even added it to my FAQ page that I would not be writing more about them. I just couldn't put them through any more drama. Their story was done. I could maybe write a few bonus scenes and I did and posted them. Yet, inwardly I kept saying another full length story? 

Never

Then it happened. The story just started coming to me early this year (2013) and I still fought it, but it wouldn't go away. So I decided just for giggles to write a scene. My GOD what fun it was to get back into their world. And so it began until...

uh oh.




Remember these two?

The scenes I'd started writing were supposed to be just for fun, therapeutic, while I took breaks from Desert Heat, Abel and Breaking Brandon . But it kept getting longer and the tension and angst began to build and I couldn't just leave it like that! Those longer more intense scenes? Well... they turned into chapters. And then... *hangs head* let's just say, never say never because now... 

Coming in February 2014 ...

(Moreno Brothers 1.5)


Synopsis:

Angel Moreno and Sarah Fiero fell in love in Forever Mine, but for a couple of high school sweethearts, forever is a really long time...
 

Catch up with them and the whole gang  in college as past insecurities resurface. As if dealing with her best friend Sydney wasn't enough, Angel now has two more men to deal with in Sarah's life. There's no shortage of edge-of-your-seat, angsty drama, tears, and laughter as Angel and Sarah's love is put to the ultimate test in this addition to the Moreno Brother series. 



Add it to your GoodReads "To Read" shelf now!  



Surprised? Excited? Confused? LOL Tell me about it here or on my FB fan page


Now some of those previous teasers I posted will make more sense. Here they are with their names in them this time.  If you don't feel like rereading skip to the end for the giveaway! =D



Teaser #1


"It's not true is it?"

Her mom motioned for her to take seat at the kitchen table but she refused. "No first tell me if it's true," Sarah asked her heart rate spiking as the feelings of betrayal sunk in.

Had her mom really made such a selfish decision and kept it from her all these years?

"It's complicated."

"What's complicated?" she demanded the warm tears blurring her eyes. "Either you lied to me or you didn't."

"I was protecting you, honey. Sit down and I'll explain."

Teaser #2 

"Forever and always?" Sarah asked smiling against his lips, her hands still cupping his face.

"I'm yours," Angel responded as she knew he would then added. "You're mine."

"Forever and always," she assured him kissing him even deeper. 

It was something they'd started doing over a year ago playfully but somehow it stuck and both knew exactly how to respond whenever one of them brought it up. 

Kissing her one last time as they stood next to her bed he pulled away staring at her with a now very intense stare she knew meant only one thing. In the next instant he spun her around then pulled her shorts off.

Teaser #3

"I hope it was worth it." The coach glared at them all. "I hope you guys at least got laid tonight because after the game tomorrow, win or lose, you don't shower. You don't head to the bus. You grab something to eat from a vending machine or wherever you can in that stadium. Then you meet me back on that field when the crowds are gone. We're gonna run drills until you're all puking your f**ing lungs out. And then Sunday morning. We do it again. Sunday afternoon—again."

He slammed his hand against the bus ceiling then walked off the bus. All the players sat there waiting to be dismissed but they watched as the coach walked into the hotel and didn't walk back out. The driver stood up and faced them with a disapproving but sympathetic expression. "I think you boys better get to bed now."

They all stood slowly and exited the bus with their tails between their legs . Angel was so mad he could almost roar but there was no point. This whole weekend was fucked now. Even then he'd gladly take the drills and the two-a-day on Sunday. None of that was worse than having to explain this night to Sarah.

Teaser #4 

Sarah didn't respond to that, and she knew there was no way he couldn't see the pain in her flooded eyes. That's why when he said goodbye one last time and cut their chat so abruptly, leaving her staring at a black screen, it felt like an even colder slap in the face.

Stay tuned for more teasers! 
   
Also some of you may not be aware but Sarah and Angel's first book Forever Mine is now available in Spanish! If you know any Spanish readers you think might enjoy please pass the word along!
