Hey all!

Well, my birthday was yesterday! Yay!

Since I'm feeling extra generous, I'm going to give you all a choice on my next excerpt!

Before I get to that though, let me tell you about what I'm working on.

There's something about families isn't there? They are so complex.

I love reading series about families. There's just something great about how the characters stick  together and are there for each other in their times of need. I've loved writing about families too!

My next book, After the Storm introduces my first family series: The McAllisters. Perhaps you've noticed that name before! I've already introduced two of the family members in previous books. Lila McAllister in Dream Lover and her sister, Cassandra, in Taking Chances. Lila will be the first McAllister in After the Storm.

If you recall from Dream Lover, the McAllisters run a very large hotel chain. Lila, runs her own event planning company. She is burnt out and is forced into a sabbatical, which leads to her to Galveston, where her family got their start in the business. While she's there, she meets Zach, a fighter who is also in Galveston to "get away from it all".

Their initial meeting is rather rocky, but after they are forced to spend time together, and they get to see the real sides of each other, they can't deny the attraction between them.

I had a lot of fun writing this book! One because part of the story is set in Texas! The other part I enjoyed working on is Zach's character. He is a professional mixed martial arts fighter. My husband is a professional MMA fighter, so it was great getting his input on this story!

That brings me to the excerpt choice, I'm giving you all, the readers the choice on which excerpt from After the Storm you'd like.

The poll is at the bottom of this blog!

I look forward to what you all choose!

Happy Reading!
